THE 9/11 TRUTH SLEUTH HERALD
July 31, 2004 Vol. 1, No. 2
from the 911Truth.org Coalition
A first excellent preemptive version of a 9/11 Commission Report critique is now up online (though rather unobtrusively) in the Downloads section of http://911citizenswatch.org (Direct link: http://tinyurl.com/5qd7t)
It is based on all the earlier 9/11 committee reports, which as we saw constituted 90% of the final draft. The following is their lead blurb, but the entire doc covers much, much more than that.
"In the wake of the attacks of September 11th, 2001, independent researchers, former military and intelligence officers, families of victims, certain members of Congress and other citizens began to address the unanswered questions about the events. Who? Why? How?"
John Judge at http://911citizenswatch.org is now starting to compile all the 9/11 Report's omissions, contradictions, bald face lies, etc. in preparation for The Official 9/11 Omission Report (to be released publicly on August 27).
All sourced contributions to this volume would be warmly welcomed. Please only use mainstream or official sources to document your points and the location of the disputed or contradicted statements in the official report (if such exist).
Please send all suggestions & contributions to email@example.com and say whether or how you would like your help to be credited in the book.
Members of the Family Steering Committee are also doing the same work and will be releasing their own white paper on the web late next week (and they have also generously offered it to us for inclusion in the book).
The whole report is now online and searchable at: http://vivisimo.com/911 and Nico Haupt has put up a fine first example of the hunting process at: http://inn.globalfreepress.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=604
On July 26, 9/11truth.org board member Byron Belitsos convened a press conference at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club, under the headline: "Unanswered Questions Remain: Critics Respond to 9/11 Commissionís Final Report". Presenters included bestselling investigative journalist Jim Marrs, author of the recently released comprehensive account of 9/11 entitled Inside Job: Unmasking the 9/11 Conspiracies and Ralph Schoenman, author of numerous books on foreign policy and one of the Bay Areaís most distinguished political journalist-activists. These two researchers, offering critical perspectives from different parts of the political spectrum, along with other prominent independent 9/11 researchers, presented an alternative view to the findings of the 9/11 Commission and the current picture of 9/11 that dominates the mainstream news media. Also speaking at the press conference was Dennis Mitrzyk, a write-in candidate for Congress for congressional district 14, and Green Party candidate for Congress in the 18th congressional district Ray Grock-Gruenlich. Renowned local researcher Don Paul, author of 9/11: Facing Our Fascist State also offered an enlightening statement and remarks. .Although the press turnout was spotty the room was energized by several dozen activists who were either hip to 9/11 or anxious to learn more. Besides local reporters, the event was covered on a regional news wire service and an audiotape of highlights will soon be available in the Resources section of 911truth.org
Boston's many alternative events before and during the DNC were alive with the sound of 9/11 and a lot of visuals as well (three "Expose the 9/11 Cover-up" signs were blatantly visible across the Boston Globe's front page protest photo that ran on Monday the 26th). Nick Levis and Adam Hurter filed two fine detailed reports on the early events that have been condensed online here: http://nancho.net/911/911BOSriffs.html
Afterwards we repaired to the Progressive Democrats of America convention in Roxbury on Thursday where we passed on the 9/11 Peace & Justice endorsement packages and copies of Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor into the welcoming hands of Howard Dean, Tom Hayden, Jim Zogby of the Arab American Institute, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Congressman John Conyers, and Victor Navasky, publisher of The Nation.
The main seed work there though was papering the entire 400+ audience of angry anti-war Dems who were being told to shut up by the Kerry camp because peace talk was "off message". The lfyer we passed around was
9/11 TRUTH AS KEY TO PROGRESSIVE VICTORY
1. "THE ROOT OF COUNTLESS EVILS"
2. THE BIG PICTURE PERSPECTIVE
3. THE HIGH GROUND ADVANTAGE
4. THE PASSIVE POPULIST FACTOR
5. THE SILENT SHAME PERPLEX
7. A GENTLE LEARNING CURVE
- Out of nowhere a new truth warrior appears at yesterday's Senate 9/11 Commission hearings. Despite all the hallelujah choruses being sung around Washington for the 9/11 Report, Sen. Mark Dayton (D-MN) nervously but steadfastly rips into the NORAD and White House lies accepted without a burp by the Kean cover-up crew. Just an amazing performance and one that we should all see and SUPPORT.
To see the video, go to http://c-span.org and search for "Senate Hearing on Sept. 11 Cmsn. Recommendations (07/30/2004)" Dayton's extraordinary (and totally unanswered) accusations begin at about 1:58:00 on the clip.

The following is an important appeal from our friends at INN World Report- an innovative, hard-hitting weekly news program that has done some of the most thorough 9/11 reporting to date. They are needing distribution help to get their show more widely viewed. The program is entirely non-commercial and non-corporate, operating on a shoestring budget out of downtown New York City, just a few blocks from Ground Zero. They are broadcast on FreeSpeech TV, a non-profit channel on the satellite network Dish Network, and they are picked up via satellite by about 50 public access cable stations around the country.
At this time they are seeking people who could act as a local sponsor for their program so that it can air on more public access stations. Most communities, whether you know it or not, have a public access cable TV station, and usually they require a local person to "sponsor" a program for it to go on air. If you think you'd be interested and able to do this, please get in touch with them. A press release with contact information is pasted below.
Hello from INN World Report, where we bring you the news the networks won't tell you.
Our weekly, one hour news and political affairs program is a unique and captivating new presence on the American MediaScape. INN stands for International News Net, and that should give you some indication as to what we are all about. Rather than take our cue from the "agenda setting press" here in the States (such as the New York Times, CNN and USA today) where the spectrum of opinion is about as wide as a New York Alleyway (and just as dark too), we take a comprehensive look at media from around the world and look into the stories that the American Media either ignores or underplays. Some examples:
*September 19 2003 INN breaks news of 328 ³security weaknesses² found in touch screen voting machines manufactured by Diebold Corporation..
*April 26 2003 INN breaks the news that U.S. forces used Napalm on Iraqi civilians.
*March 12 2004: INN interviews retired Air Force officer Karen Kwiatkowski, who reveals distortions of intelligence on Iraq during the lead-up to war.
*March 26 2004: INN is the first to speak to whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, who shocked the world with her insider revelations of FBI 9/11 intelligence, and who was latter censored from speaking to any Media in the US.
*April 30 2004: INN reports Riggs Bank/Bush family connections to the 911 hijackers.
INN also provides up-close interviews with the world's leading intellectuals, political leaders and journalists including: Dennis Kucinich, Scott Ritter, Michael Meachum, Michio Kaku, Greg Palast, Chalmers Johnson, Richard Ben-Veniste, George Monbiot, and Janeane Garofalo.
Here's what some of our viewers are saying about the show:
"They're kicking out outrageous, terrific, intense news reports that uncover all sorts of bizarre and horrifying news?Totally mind-blowing exposés of government, corporate evil, nepotism, corruption!" ?A Viewer in Amherst, Massachusettes
