Fwd: Continued: PBS censoring, "Debunking 9/11 Debunking"

More on PBS censoring, "Debunking 9/11 Debunking"

2/15/2008 Bill Moyer's Journal:

This week, Moyers was permitted to refer to David Ray Griffin and his
book: "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" by name.

Admitting that he received complaints, Moyers defends the PBS
position by pointing to an internet blog that recommended -- without
allegience -- that 911Blogger readers follow an action alert to swamp
the Moyers book recommendations with David Ray Griffin's book title:
Debunking 9/11 Debunking. The alleged "orchestrator" for the
astounding 250 PBS recommendations was from a particular
user, "phoenixrising" who appears to have a website called in Claifornia.

Despited the "phonixrising" action alert, the overall 911blogger
acknowledgements numbered no more than 45 which falls way short of
representing the 250 Griffin book recommendations found on the
PBS/Moyers site.

The numbers become even less representative of a
massive "orchestration" when the PBS site contains works authored by
Griffin, but have different titles. Even without the offending title
the popularity of Griffin's other works is formidable and worthy of
mention in their own right.

When PBS chose to throw out the baby with the bath-water on Griffin's
various other titles they revealed their own campaign to suppress the
9/11 issue by suppressing ALL books authored by David Ray Griffin.

It is easier to conclude that PBS inventeted the notion of
the "orchestrated campaign" as a specious argument to avoid having to
honestly confront the revelation that controlled demolition was
responsible for the collapse of three (3) skyscrapers on 9/11/2001.

Fwd: Bush Hides Net Site of Economic Indicators
Bush Administration Hides More Data, Shuts Down Website Tracking U.S.
Economic Indicators
The U.S. economy is faltering. Family debt is on the rise, benefits
are disappearing, the deficit is skyrocketing, and the mortgage
crisis has worsened. Conservatives have attempted to deflect
attention from the crisis, by blaming the media's negative coverage
and insisting the United States is not headed toward a recession,
despite what economists are predicting.

The Bush administration's latest move is to simply hide the data.
Forbes has awarded one of its "Best of the
Web" awards. As Forbes explains, the government site provides an
invaluable service to the public for accessing U.S. economic data:

This site is maintained by the Economics and Statistics
Administration and combines data collected by the Bureau of Economic
Analysis, like GDP and net imports and exports, and the Census
Bureau, like retail sales and durable goods shipments. The site
simply links to the relevant department's Web site. This might not
seem like a big deal, but doing it yourself-say, trying to find
retail sales data on the Census Bureau's site-is such an exercise in
futility that it will convince you why this portal is necessary.

Yet the Bush administration has decided to shut down this site
because of "budgetary constraints," effective March 1:

Economic Indicators is particularly useful because people can sign up
to receive e-mails as soon as new economic data across government
agencies becomes available. While the data will still be available
online at various federal websites, it will be less readily
accessible to members of the public.

In its e-mail announcement on the closing of Economic Indicators, the
Department of Commerce acknowledged the "inconvenience" and
offered "a free quarterly subscription to STAT-USA®/InternetT"
instead. Once this temporary subscription runs out, however, the
public will be forced to pay a fee. So not only will economic data be
more hidden, it will also cost money.

It's ironic that the Economic and Statistics Administration is
facing "budgetary contraints," considering Bush recently submitted a
record $3.1 trillion budget to Congress for FY '09.

UPDATE: Steve Benen has compiled other examples of the Bush
administration hiding inconvenient data.

9/11: The New Evidence

An evening with Ian Henshall, author of the recently-published book

Ian will be signing copies of his book and answering questions.

Introducing his talk Ian will say

"The drip drip of new evidence continues to strengthen the case for
scepticism over the official story of the 911 attacks."

Several elements of the new picture were highlighted in 911 The New
Evidence. These are
* the admission that there was a anti-hijack exercise running at the
same time as the "real" attacks,
* the admission that the 911 Commission was, as two of its members
later said, "set up to fail",
* the failure to provide any explanation for the collapse of WTC7
(which was not hit by a plane),
* the release of the official flight recorder data from Flt 77
showing that it could not have hit the Pentagon

In 911 The New Evidence Henshall presented many more details which
are not widely known, even to 911 sceptics
* At the trial of alleged 20th hijacker Moussaoui the FBI
mysteriously withheld the US visa applications of the alleged
hijacker leaders (Atta, Shehi, Jarrah, Hanjour). These would have
been issued through the US Berlin embassy. David Edger, the CIA
operations chief there, later admitted that they were aware of the
hijackers. Edger is an expert on politically targeted intelligence
operations and was active in Chile during the US led coup which took
place on September 11 1973.
* The original 2002 FEMA report timed the aircraft crashes in New
York to 20 seconds AFTER the explosions which eyewitnesses say they
heard in the basement of the buildings and which were picked on the
seismic records.
* The FEMA report noted unexplained traces on sulphur and its experts
commented on the signs of vaporisation of the WTC sections. Both
these reports, indicating the use of explosives, have been ignored in
subsequent inquiries.
* a close reading of the various limited transcripts that have been
released shows that air traffic controllers thought the apparently
hijacked planes were part of the Pentagon's anti-hijack exercise.
* Condoleeza Rice and George Tenet both lied on oath to the 911

Since The New Evidence was published last autumn there have been more
* The Sunday Times revelations from FBI translator Sibel Edmonds
confirm early reports that four Israelis arrested after a tip-off
after they were seen celebrating and filming the collapse of the
Towers were indeed operatives and were released under pressure from
top Washington neocons.
* another deadline for the promised report on the collapse of WTC7
has silently slipped by
* a new book based on leaks to a New York Times writer has
highlighted the improper relations between the 911 Commission's
executive director Philip Zelikow and his close associates in the
White House.
* ex Italian President Cossiga, who exposed the US/UK Gladio
operation in Europe has now denounced 911 as a false flag operation
in the mainstream Italian media. In an eerie parallel to 911, Gladio
used front organisations to carry out false flag terror attacks as a
political weapon. The most notable example was the Bologna bombing.
* Opposition leaders in Japan have raised questions over the 911
attacks in Parliament there.
