A thread for thoughts, actions, reflections, articles, etc. on 10th unhappy anniversary of 911

[TD="width: 407"]A Message to our Center for Constitutional Rights Supporters:
In response to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, George W. Bush shredded the U.S. Constitution, trampled on the Bill of Rights, discarded the Geneva Conventions, and heaped scorn on the domestic torture statute and the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
As we mark the 10th anniversary of the terrible events of September 11, 2001, none of us has any desire to play down the horrors of that day, but two wrongs do not make a right, and, in response to the attacks, the Bush administration engineered and presided over the most sustained period of constitutional decay in our history.
[Image: 911decadebox_email.gif]Moreover, although George W. Bush entered the first decade of the 21st century by dismantling the rights that are fundamental to the identity of the United States and the security of its people, Barack Obama ended the decade by failing to fully reinstate those rights. Through his own indecision, or through ferocious opposition in Congress, he has been unable to close the infamous prison at Guantanamo Bay, as promised, and has also refused to even contemplate holding anyone in the Bush administration accountable for their crimes.
As a result, the democratic principles which we hold dear have suffered a massive blow in the first ten years of the 21st century, although that is not the main problem. The deep erosion of our civil liberties is to be lamented, and should be resisted, however difficult the political climate, but the most painful truth about the last decade is that it marks an undoing of democracy so severe that without concerted and deliberate action by the people in this country -- and, one hopes, by their elected leaders -- the values which defined us, before the events of 9/11 allowed the Bush administration to reshape our perception of executive power, may never be regained.
In the end, the test of our democracy is to look at the actions that have been done in our name and under our watch the wars, the repression, the extra-judicial detention and killings, the torture, the profiling and ask ourselves: are we in a better position now to stop the acts that continue, to ensure that they don't happen in the future, to ensure that the officials are held accountable, and to put the presidency back in the constitutional box than we were 10 years ago?
The answer to that is yes, to the extent that we are able to demand that our government end the lawlessness, stop stockpiling constitutional power and move back towards a path of lawful, democratic action, but the restoration of the values that we hold dear requires concerted action by many people. The 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is a painful anniversary, but let us also make it the occasion when, en masse, we say to the government, "Enough is enough," and demand an end to the ongoing injustices, and the return of our values.
On Wednesday, September 14, CCR will be hosting a panel discussion at the NYU School of Law entitled, "A Decade of Fighting Terror: CCR Reflects on 10 Years After 9/11," featuring CCR President Emeritus Michael Ratner, CCR Executive Director Vincent Warren, and CCR Attorneys Shayana Kadidal and Rachel Meeropol. The event, to be held at D'Agostino Hall, 108 West Third St. (at MacDougal St.) in New York, is from 6:30 to 8:30, and is free and open to the public; space is limited so please RVSP by Monday September 12 to rsvp@CCRjustice.org. If you are unable to attend in person, go to www.CCRjustice.org/10YearsLater to watch a live webcast.
Over the last decade, your unwavering support and commitment to human rights and justice has fortified CCR and allowed us to continue the struggle alongside all of you. We know that true change can only come from the people. We look forward to continuing to stand together over the next decade as we face the challenges ahead, and to working with you to achieve the world we all envision. Visit www.ccrjustice.org/the911decade for CCR's comprehensive perspective on this critical time in our lives.
Sincerely,

Vincent Warren

Executive Director

AE9/11 Truth 10th Anniversary Campaign Begins

About Remember Building 7

Remember Building 7 is a non-partisan campaign led by 9/11 family members to raise awareness of the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 through television and other forms of advertising, and to shift public opinion such that the New York City Council and Manhattan District Attorney will be compelled to open an investigation into Building 7′s destruction.

Remember Building 7 commissioned a Siena poll in May 2011 that found 48% of New Yorkers would be in favor of the NYC Council or Manhattan District Attorney opening a new Building 7 investigation.

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." Arthur Conan Doyle, Author

Richard Gage of AE9/11 Truth has posted a message to all AE911Truth supporters.

Dear AE911Truth Supporters,

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is pleased to announce the launch of the Remember Building 7 10th Anniversary Campaign the most aggressive ad campaign yet. This season we are accelerating our strategic partnership with RememberBuilding7.org in order to make this 10th Anniversary a vital turning point in the pursuit of a new 9/11 investigation.

In conjunction with the Remember Building 7 Campaign, we are very proud today to also release our powerful new 15-minute mini-documentary "Architects & Engineers: Solving the Mystery of WTC 7" as the essential educational component of the new campaign and an exceptional tool for all people who want to effectively expose the fraudulent official story of WTC 7's destruction and the explosive evidence omitted from the NIST Report. It is compellingly narrated by actor Ed Asner and features a stellar lineup of AE911Truth experts including structural engineers, chemical engineers, physicists and others.

See it in context at RememberBuilding7.org and get inspired to do your part in the campaign by forwarding this Action Alert to everyone you know! And be sure to make your pledge to the 10th Anniversary Ad Campaign today. See below for the exciting campaign details.

As always, thank you for your tremendous support!

Sincerely,

Richard Gage, AIA
and the AE911Truth Volunteer Team

For a little more background information on the all too important Remember Building 7 campaign:

What is "Remember Building 7?"

Remember Building 7 is a non-partisan campaign led by 9/11 family members to raise awareness of the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 through television and other forms of advertising, and to shift public opinion such that the New York City Council and Manhattan District Attorney will be compelled to open an investigation into Building 7′s destruction.

The campaign started in the fall of 2010, raising $100,000 in small donations to purchase commercial time on cable television throughout the New York Metropolitan Area. The first TV ad, which featured four 9/11 family members, ran 580 times from Novmber 2 through December 5, reaching an estimated one million unique viewers an average of 8 times each.

A new ad was released online in March 2011, this time featuring four 9/11 family members, two engineers and two architects. The campaign again succeeded in raising $100,000 to purchase more television commercial time for June 2011, reaching another one million unique viewers.

For the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, Remember Building 7 is striving to raise $1 million between Labor Day and September 11 for a major fall campaign that will include TV, print and out-of-home advertising and expand to a handful of other US cities.

The Remember Building 7 campaign is cosponsored by several groups, led by the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), which is a non-partisan organization of 9/11 family members, first responders and survivors, and by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of more than 1,500 architectural and engineering professionals who have put their professional reputations on the line to publicly challenge the official explanation of Building 7's destruction. The campaign changed its name from BuildingWhat? to Remember Building 7 with the release of the second ad in March 2011.
-----------------------------------------
A Unique Time in the History of the Movement
The time upon us is momentous in both its grief for the deep loss and the promise that it brings to the march towards truth and justice regarding the 9/11 catastrophe. An awakening is happening in our country an awakening that is much more advanced overseas. As a street activist, the sea change I have witnessed in people's receptiveness to the heavy knowledge that we bear has been extraordinary. We can now easily go broke handing out material, instead of returning home with unused DVDs as we did many years ago. The nation is in dire straits from many standpoints; disenfranchised, disenchanted people are looking for answers, and we are presenting some scientific answers, and calling on official bodies to expose the rest. Gandhi said, "When I despair, I remember that all through history, the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think on it always."

In these dark times, we must be thankful for all of our blessings, and band together as we travel this rocky road. The urgent situation that 9/11 Truth exposes demands diligent and frequent action of all good people everywhere. Such action is also liberating, in every circumstance, and can even be really fun at times. People have lost jobs and relationships in their pursuit of the truth and in speaking out for it. But, speaking as one of those who has suffered some of these losses, what has been gained and what still stands to be gained, permanently, is vastly more worthwhile than what has been lost, for whatever duration. We must remember that, as Gandhi said, "An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it." We are making sure that everybody sees the evidence of the WTC controlled demolition. In addition to all the events above, volunteering at AE911Truth provides another opportunity for you to help.

They are now hyping up a new terror threat on NYC and DC for the 10th anniversary [9/11/11]. I'm highly suspicious.....a very convenient way to have police and others keep anyone from demonstrating and to control everything and everyone that day and days around it. Unless, of course, the undead attackers from the original 911 are going to try again.....:cheer:
Threat code = RED; methinks the bullshit code also = RED. :mexican:

Until the life of the terrorist is held to be as sacred as the life of the terrorized, the terror will continue.

Lemkin...

The *big event* in Toronto is nothing but a repetition of all the other AE911T sponsored events with a few other speakers added and instead of a peanut gallery audience to vote on whether they are convinced of explosive controlled demolition... they have a few professors and academicians who will vote for it... and then AE911T's Gorley who was one of the organizers will write a report declaring the evidence for explosive controlled demolition has passed the *sniff test*. Don't expect a shred of new evidence from Toronto. It's just a well engineered marketing event for a MIHOP explosive controlled demolition theory.

As far as the recent announcement that another big terror attack is in the offing... Why not? Big terror attacks are likely planned by the same people who being us all the false flag attacks and so why not prep us for an other? Can't possible create too much fear in the people.

The two paragraphs seems to reflect mutually exclusive themes. They don't. The truth movement, I believe, has barked up the wrong tree several times in trying to pin down what actually happened on 911. This may seem like a *minor detail* since it likely was a state sponsored false flag operation so the *results" are more important the recipe. Yet I would assert that if you intend to connect the dots and nail the mechanics and then the perps you need to get the story correct about what happened. I don't think Judy Woods' work is credible and neither is Dimitri Khazelov's. However, I also find the work of the group associated with Toronto for the most part... not all of it... sloppy science and does not support their main conclusions about the destruction at the WTC. They say they want a new investigation about what happened, but declare the towers were all destroyed by explosive controlled demolition. If that's the case then why don't they detail how it was done, who did it.. and what were the *explosives* and where were they placed and how were they detonated and so forth. Or is that the subject of the investigation they call for? Don't you think that's a conclusion in search of evidence to support it? And not an investigation of the observables and data to understand what happened?

You tell me.
