“NIST had reached a predetermined conclusion that refused, avoided and dismissed the evidence.”

Big Lie 9/11
“Incomplete and nonsensical explanations”
You can probably guess my view on this one. Or maybe not, because it’s so anger-filled at the moment.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is paying at least one large public relations firm in Washington, D.C. to recruit American military veterans who will agree to visit Capitol Hill to tell members of Congress — in person — that they oppose a new federal law allowing civil lawsuits against state sponsors of terrorism.
Saudi Arabia’s government also appears to be funding luxurious, all-expenses-paid trips to Washington, D.C. for the veterans which include stays at the $500-per-night Trump International Hotel.
The law is the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which creates a way for American citizens to file civil claims against foreign governments for deaths and other damage related to terrorist acts if the foreign governments financed those attacks.
Jimmy Dore addressed this in his podcast. When he did, it dawned on me why Barack Obama may have done this. This is a hypothetical…
“Jimmy – Let me play devil’s advocate for a second.

I am heartened by Reuters’ policy of fairness and impartiality in the age of Trump. Fifteen years ago I had to personally enter the game because the September 11th attacks were not being honestly reported by America’s newsrooms. Those attacks have arguably given us everything that has followed since.
Specifically, it is no longer unknowable that members of the US administration committed Treason in deliberately allowing the attacks to proceed. The 28 (29) redacted pages of the Joint Inquiry tie the government of Saudi Arabia directly to the hijackers through numerous connections. The US administrations which have aided and abetted in that cover-up have committed Treason. This is undisputable. It is not, however, the narrative that US corporate media is allowed to tell its audience.
We know that the CIA was well aware of the San Diego Al Qaeda cell for 16 months prior to the attacks. This cell allegedly flew a hijacked plane into the Pentagon. The CIA admitted in 2005 it knew about the men, and despite warnings of “spectacular attacks” and George Tenet claiming his “hair was on fire” absolutely nothing was done to arrest the cell members. This is hidden in plain sight. They simply rebranded the incident as “information sharing” rather than “hiding hijackers from the FBI.”
Richard Clarke accused George Tenet of what is essentially Treason, but this wasn’t covered at all by US corporate media.
As you can imagine, once the Project for a New American Century designs for a “new Pearl Harbor” were approved to move forward all bets were off as to what specfically happened that day. PNAC members included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld (who did absolutely nothing to defend the country during the actual attack) and the president’s brother Jeb.
We know one thing for certain: that the malfeasance was intentional and helped the Saudis succeed in many ways. If you are true to your statement to investigate the most important events then you must have a team devoted to investigating 9/11 high Treason.
I’ve had my issues with foundation-funded outlet Alternet for a lot of years. I am actually banned from their website. I guess they never figured out how to ban criticism from Facebook…
The CIA’s covert wars on Russia and its allies have been a danger to us all. An existential threat. We have been at the brink of nuclear war this year.
How can Morley ignore the current state of the world as he delves into this minor issue about unproven allegations from CIA spooks? How much of this article is spin?
The bulk of it is a single CIA officer’s opinions.
I’ve come across Jefferson Morley before, as he investigates the JFK hit, while never acknowledging the glaringly obvious: the CIA killed Kennedy.
He goes out of his way to throw in a 9/11 reference, but never acknowledges the Treason at the heart of the plot: CIA knew Al Qaeda cells were inside the USA for 16 months! This was admitted in a 2005 CIA Inspector General report, and Richard Clarke has gone out of his way to point a finger at George Tenet. Morley completely ignores the actual CIA malfeasance which allowed the 9/11 attacks to occur at all, and instead harps on the well known (limited hangout ) presidential daily brief, which is the equivalent of a magician waving a colorful hankerchief around.
If Morley would like to go toe to toe over the 9/11 attacks, my schedule is wide open.
9/11 & 28 Pages of Treason
Newly released FBI documents say agents investigating 9/11 connections did not obtain security records from a Sarasota-area gated community containing alleged evidence that 9/11 hijackers had visited the residence of a Saudi family with ties to the royal family.
The memorandum also fails to explain, as the commission’s final report suggested it would, the basis for FBI statements made to the 9/11 Review Commission that sought to discredit an April 2002 FBI report that – contrary to the FBI’s public comments – said agents found “many connections” between the Sarasota Saudis and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.”
A heavily censored copy of the four-page Memorandum for the Record is among more than 200 pages of declassified 9/11 Review Commission records released to FloridaBulldog.org this month by the FBI amid ongoing Freedom of Information litigation.
