9/11 Research Sources

The following article contains links to documents for use in the research and investigation of unanswered questions regarding the events of 9/11. Do not be mistaken, the 9/11 Commission report has left most serious questions unanswered or simply not addressed. Do your own investigation and if you come to your own conclusions and appreciate the magnitude of this issue help spread the truth. Read more…

For a valuable starting point including a long list of serious questions go to the website for the Family Steering Committee. These are questions unanswered by, and created for the administration from a large group of family members of those killed on 9/11: Questions!

This list of research sources, and this blog overall, will be updated frequently with information and resources regarding the motives and potential complicity of the Bush administration in the tragedy that was 9/11. If you have additional resources that you believe may be valuable in this investigation please make them through the comments link at the bottom of each article and I will report them, or incorporate them into this resource sheet. If you are not concerned about anonymity please send me any info via my email Send 9/11 Info!

Let me know if you would like me to add you to an email list and I will inform you of updates to the 9/11 Research Sources document online.

Can high-powered controversial images mesmerize skeptics of complicity, long enough to make an imprint and possibly redirect their skepticism towards the official story of 9/11? I don't have the answer, however in an attempt to find out, I've made available a series of hi-resolution images that express administration complicity as provocatively as possible. Some may consider these to be merely partisan and extremely inflammatory, but I feel very passionately about the issue of complicity. In reference to an example of politically provocative marketing, I would like to make reference to the broadcast commercial made by the DDB agency in 1964 for Lyndon Johnson, where "a child playing with a daisy fades into a mechanical sounding adult voice counting down to nuclear destruction." DDB set out to create a commercial that would avoid focusing strictly on the competition between LBJ and his opponent Barry Goldwater, but to case the election, in the words of "Culture of Cool" author Thomas Frank, "as an expression of the archetypal cultural conflict of the day. Its stark division of the world into flower-child and technocratic death count couldn't have caught the mood of the nation more accurate or more presciently." Although I'm not claiming that these images will have the same effect (and I must express that I wouldn't have marketed for LBJ), I think they are valuable as an expression of how an image can tell a story, albeit an unpleasant story, and possibly work their way into the public conciousness. Yes, these images may be considered extreme or inflammatory, but how truly inflammatory is a mere image when compared to the ruthless and very real incendiary actions of the Bush Administration? Go here if so inclined, and good luck to you:
Expose The Truth!

More to come. I will be updating this often. Please spread this wildly!

SOME IMPORTANT QUOTES ABOUT 9/11:

GARY HART – Former Senator

"In terms of accountability, I think this is one of the great mysteries of the last three or four years. Three thousand Americans died three years ago, and no one lost his or her job over it. A president who says that he is a strong president, and those around him say he is, did not fire anyone. Either he was misled, in which case, somebody should have been fired. Or he misled us, in which case he should be fired."

ED ASNER - Actor and Activist

"I fear that if the underlying issues of 9-11 truth are not demanded, that Iraq may be but a flame on an ocean of gasoline that may be used to ignite war after war after war. We cannot, as a peace & justice movement only address the flames. We must look at the fuel being used to justify the flames of war and repression at home and abroad.

We must look deeply at the events leading up to, on and since 9-11. We must demand full 9-11 truth."

HOWARD ZINN – Author and Historian

"Whether one views the 9/11 'terrorist' attacks as blowback, a wake-up call, or an unjustified outrage, they have deeply affected the American psyche and our attitudes toward war, the future, and the world. . . . After 9/11, this administration systematically nurtured the fear of further homeland attacks to justify its own assaults on constitutional rights as well as social and environmental programs that protected "the people" but fettered corporate power and control. . . . Democracy requires citizen vigilance, informed debate and official accountability."

GORE VIDAL - Author

“We still don't know by whom we were struck that infamous Tuesday, or for what true purpose. But it is fairly plain to many civil libertarians that 9/11 put paid not only to much of our fragile Bill of Rights but also to our once-envied system of government which had taken a mortal blow the previous year when the Supreme Court did a little dance in 5/4 time and replaced a popularly elected President with the oil and gas Bush-Cheney junta.”

'astonished military experts cannot fathom why the government's "automatic standard order of procedure in the event of a hijacking" was not followed'

“It is interesting how often in our history, when disaster strikes, incompetence is considered a better alibi than .... Well, yes, there are worse things.”

KURT VONNEGUT - Author

I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been. What has happened, though, is that it has been taken over by means of the sleaziest, low-comedy, Keystone Cops-style coup d’etat imaginable”

RICHARD CLARKE - Top White House Terrorism Advisor during 9/11

“Frankly, I find it outrageous that the president is running for re-election on the grounds that he’s done such great things about terrorism,” says Clarke in Sunday’s interview. “He ignored it. He ignored terrorism for months, when maybe we could have done something to stop 9/11. Maybe. We’ll never know.”

Rumsfeld was saying we needed to bomb Iraq….We all said, ‘but no, no. Al Qaeda is in Afghanistan,” recounts Clarke, “and Rumsfeld said, ‘There aren’t any good targets in Afghanistan and there are lots of good targets in Iraq.’ I said, ‘Well, there are lots of good targets in lots of places, but Iraq had nothing to do with [the September 11 attacks].’”

ROBERT WRIGHT - FBI agent tracking terrorist cell in Chicago 98/01

Internal FBI memo June 2001 ‘the FBI, rather than trying to prevent a terrorist attack, "was merely gathering intelligence so they would know who to arrest when a terrorist attack occurred."

MARK FLESSNER - Chicago federal prosecutor on above case

‘evidently thought that something other than incompetence was involved, saying that there "were powers bigger than I was in the Justice Department and within the FBI that simply were not going to let [the building of a criminal case] happen."

GEORGE TENET - CIA Director: Intelligence Summary on June 28 2001

"It is highly likely that a significant al-Qadea attack is in the near future, within several weeks."

PRESIDENTIAL BRIEFING - August 6 2001

Title: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”

“FBI information since that time indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.”
