For years the 9/11 Truth movement has been vainly pleading with mainstream media – and the “alternative” 9/11-Truth-rejecting media (which we’ll include for our purposes as mainstream) to cover any of the endless, obvious problems with any of the Official 9/11 Conspiracy Theory (OCT) tales we’ve been told. Now, all of a sudden, these same mainstream media, echoing prestigious players like former US Senator Bob Graham, are on the rampage about a “9/11 cover-up,” and are pushing for the (more…)

New consensus points show NIST ignored critical WTC 7 evidence: AE911Truth may launch suit

Building 7 small fire

“NIST simulations omitted basic structural supports that would have made this girder failure impossible.”

By Craig McKee

They admit they ignored evidence, and they don’t care.

According to one of three new points released this week by the 9/11 Consensus Panel, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has dismissed the importance of architectural drawings for World Trade Center Building 7, accessed through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which prove that the claim that the building was brought down by office fires cannot be correct.

If NIST doesn’t correct its faulty technical analysis, it could find itself being sued by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 (more…)

NYC CAN chooses new angle to force city to investigate Building 7 ‘collapse’

Many in the 9/11 Truth movement feel that demanding a new investigation into the crimes of 9/11 is doomed to fail.

We’ve seen numerous legal efforts to break through on 9/11 run head on into a combined brick wall of officialdom and the mainstream media. We saw Ellen Mariani’s legal case end in disappointment with the judicial deck stacked against her, not to mention any other victims’ family members who wanted their day in (more…)

Rethink 9/11 ads being ‘reviewed’ in Ottawa are protected: Supreme Court

The centerpiece of the Rethink 9/11 campaign is this billboard in Times Square.

By Craig McKee

Rethink 9/11 ads on Ottawa buses are staying right where they are.

A 2009 Supreme Court of Canada ruling affirms that the content of transit system ads are protected as free expression under section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. (The case involved multiple parties, including the Greater Vancouver Transit Authority, British Columbia Transit, the Canadian Federation of Students, and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association.)

The Rethink 9/11 campaign, sponsored by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, bypasses the mainstream media and exposes people to the case for 9/11 Truth (more…)

Last-minute donation keeps hope alive for 9/11 widow’s appeal

Mariani: next stop Supreme Court.

By Craig McKee

With a week to go, things didn’t look good. But what a difference a few days can make.

Ellen Mariani, whose husband died on 9/11, will have her request for an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court considered after all. A fundraising effort was launched in September to raise the $11,000 needed to file the application to appeal – and the effort has succeeded.

With just a few days to go to the Nov. 1 deadline, the fund had barely reached the halfway point, but an article on the web site of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth brought an increase in donations,

And then there was one: Supreme Court is the last hope for 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani

An 11-year fight for truth: Ellen Mariani and her husband, Neil.

By Craig McKee

They set it up perfectly.

A government “compensation fund” would pay off most families of 9/11 victims, preventing them from ever suing anyone for what happened to their loved ones.

And those who didn’t take the money would be pressured into accepting out-of-court settlements. Everyone would be kept quiet with gag orders and non-disclosure clauses, and the truth about 9/11 would never come out in a courtroom. Brilliant.

And it worked perfectly – except for Ellen Mariani. (more…)
