Daniel Ellsberg Says that the Government Has Ordered the Media Not to Cover 9/11

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/06/pentagon-papers-whist...

It's big news that the Pentagon Papers have finally been released by the government.

But the statements from Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg about 9/11 have not been covered by the corporate media.

As Fire Dog Lake's Jeff Kaye writes today:

The entire 9/11 field of inquiry has been vilified, poisoned over the years by ridicule, sometimes fantastic conspiracy mongering, and fearfulness by journalists of approaching the material, lest they be branded as irresponsible or some kind of conspiracy freak. As a result, little work has been done to investigate, except by a small group of people, some of whom have raised some real questions...

Similarly, Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski - who blew the whistle on the Bush administration's efforts to concoct false intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction - wrote (page 26):

I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11 story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American.

Several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing "a form of self-censorship"...

Calling Names,

LL, great post, comes straight to the core, the real point.
911 gave locomotion to a train of wars, Afghanistan, Iraq, and attacks on Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, & more.
It is really amazing (or distressing) that so many people who work in govt & media obey the order to stay mum on the subject of 911. They are inhibited by 'self-censorship'.
This is a lie, they are concerned about their pay-check.
These people should be called by nasty names that fit them. Because the govt & media unfairly do the same thing against truth-tellers, by calling them crazies, conspiracy nuts, etc. Name-calling is the easy way to disturb their comfort zone. I am sure it will work, they will begin to squeal. There will be gradual increase in evidence, & Light.
Fix nasty names on them, e.g. Traitors to the nation, Cowards who betray family, friends & neighbors. Pimps, Zombies, Whores, Demons, Jinns who conceal the real facts, and not bearing true witness.

in Word-War,

name-calling is a useful tool, even name distortion, e.g.
Nancy Pelosi = Nazi Policy, - she is an admitted tool of zion. As Speaker of the House she should be asked where her loyal-ties reside, america or zion?

False flag

You don't want that much media attention on a false flag operation.

Basics of 911.

so much has already been said on this important issue, including technical details, the fall, and guessing who would be involved or complicit. There is no doubt that the buildings collapsed and 3000 innocents lives were lost. At this stage the best thing to say - are already written above, I will copy paste two sentences.

1)- to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system.
2)- To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary.

Truth must be revealed, for justice & peace to prevail.

All you have to do

to convince yourself the official story isn't true is to look at the hole in the pentagon building. Any 10 year old knows that a large plane cannot fit into a small hole....

And then there is all the other evidence....

In Plane Sight was disinformation

Please check this out:
http://www.oilempire.us/inplanesite.html

I am a "truther" and have no interest in presenting these photos and analysis, except that I want the truth told.

while checking out your site

I came across this:

Building 7

Plane Site includes several films of the symmetrical, vertical collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. It is difficult to imagine any other cause than controlled demolition to explain this aspect -- the evidence for demolition of Building 7 is stronger than the evidence for demolition of the twin towers, although there is evidence that suggests this is not true even for WTC 7.

Hmm....Let see, evidence that suggests this is not true even for WTC 7. ????

I would not believe anything on a site that questions the evidence of controlled demolition of building 7.

link?

Please show me where you found that. The excerpt here doesn't make much sense:

It is difficult to imagine any other cause than controlled demolition to explain this aspect -- the evidence for demolition of Building 7 is stronger than the evidence for demolition of the twin towers, although there is evidence that suggests this is not true even for WTC 7.

I look at everything from all sides. What I know for certain is that the MANY photographs of the Pentagon on that website are more compelling than the narrow-view pictures used in In Plane Sight. Also, the missile theory doesn't hold water as far as I'm concerned. To suggest that streetlights were somehow rigged to fall over and FAKE being hit by a plane is stretching it. The whole scene makes the no-plane theory look utterly non-credible.

The excerpt comes right off site you posted

About 25% thru the article under the sub heading" possible real evidence" I literally copied and pasted the excerpt right from the article. It seems to suggest to me that although you can see with your own two eyes that building 7 was a controlled demolition there is evidence to suggest this is not true. They do not offer that evidence, they are satisfied just to put doubt in peoples minds about what they wittness. There maybe questions about the pentagon. There is no question about building 7. It is simply IMPOSSIBLE to get a 47 story skyscaper to collapse in it's own foot print WITHOUT severing all support beams at the same time.

I know, millions of other people know, building 7 was demolished. Why would we believe any story the goverment or thier agents in the MSM tell us about towers 1&2 or the pentagon?

In this day of cell phone cameras and all the other servailance cameras around is it not odd there are no films of that plane close to the pentagon, one of the most guarded buildings in the world?

The site you link to is suspect to me.

Well, thanks for your thorough reading

This is an enormous website with verbose analyses. I have not read everything, obviously.

As for the WTC, I just think they are wrong about that. That doesn't automatically make me suspect them of deliberately spreading disinfo. The reason I give them a "pass" here is because the website is closely affiliated with Michael Ruppert, who is also a flawed and controversial figure, yet his research is what made a "truther" out of me. Also, they offer comprehensive lists of key information, like this: http://www.oilempire.us/best-evidence.html

I appreciate the website's photographs and analysis of the wreckage at the Pentagon. What do you think of it? Doesn't it give you a better idea of the extent of wreckage than In Plane Sight? I have not found another site that debunks In Plane Sight as thoroughly; therefore, I still use this link. In the future I will offer my own disclaimer that I disagree with the authors about the how the WTC towers fell.

PLENTY of intentional disinformation on this subject.

and unless a person has at least a rudimentary mechanical aptitude. it is pretty pointless to talk with them about it.
plenty of people think rocks can float. [or might start tomorrow!]
Dr Paul has the right prescription.
restore the constitution. [based on natural law]
and the truth will come out!

Bump. Truth will prevail.

for the truth

That's because

they don't want you to see this.

Only an idiot, or an agent of deception could see this and say it was anything else other than a Controlled Demo. Period.

I thought this was interesting too.

New 9/11 Poll: Half Of New Yorkers Support New Investigation Into WTC7 Collapse

A new scientific poll reveals that almost half of all New Yorkers would support a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center building 7, which fell at free fall speed into its own footprint on the afternoon of September 11, 2001, after suffering only relatively minor fire damage.

Excellent article!

There's nothing controversial about asking for a new "hard-hitting" 9/11 investigation.

We need to know who & what made that collective trauma possible. . . so that we can be fortified emotionally, mentally and ,if possible, physically before the next trauma hits us.

We want to learn from history with crystal clear eyes.

Thanks

Kucinich Nader Sheehan Gravel Ellsberg...so many influential people called for a new investigation into the events of 9/11.

Thanks for a bump.
