National magazine prints David Ray Griffin's article

In a rare demonstration of courage by major U.S. news media, Rabbi Lerner, 
editor of TIKKUN magazine, has printed author David Ray Giffin's 12000 word 
article "The American Empire and 9/11" in the March/April 2007 issue.

According to Prof. Griffin the evidence‹which he presents in this article and in
several books‹"leads to the conclusion that 9/11 was a false-flag operation 
orchestrated by the Bush administration for primarily imperial reasons."

Prof. Griffin adds: "If this conclusion is correct, then exposing the falsity of
the official account of 9/11 should be high on the agenda of all people 
committed to reversing the present policies of the U.S. government, for at least
four reasons.

"First, 9/11 has provided the pretext for at least most of the malevolent and 
destructive policies carried out by the Bush-Cheney administration since that 
day. . . .

"Second, the truth about 9/11 is one truth that the American people would not 
tolerate. . . . American people simply would not allow an administration to stay
in power after learning that it had orchestrated the attacks of 9/11.

"Third, the orchestration of the attacks of 9/11 goes far beyond any previous 
instance of 'high crimes and misdemeanors' that have previously been cited as 
cause for impeachment. . . .

"Finally, to reverse the policies of the Bush-Cheney administration will require
more than simply removing this administration from office‹something that could 
be legitimately done for any number of reasons. The attacks of 9/11 were 
orchestrated to further the project of creating an American empire of truly 
global scope and, as we saw earlier, this has been a long and bipartisan 
project. Differences have involved strategy, emphasis, and demeanor more than 
the goal itself. The replacement of the Bush-Cheney administration by a 
Democratic administration for some reason other than 9/11 would probably simply 
result in a reversion to the subtler, more sophisticated, and hence more 
effective form of imperialism that the United States previously exercised."

What did Israel know in advance of 9/11 attacks?

Christopher Ketcham, a freelance journalist who has written for Harper's and 
Salon, writes in a 7000 word article in CounterPunch: "The questions [regarding 
the Israeli 'moving company workers' celebrating the 9/11 attack on the New 
Jersey waterfront, and 'more than 120 young Israeli citizens, posing as art 
students'] are disturbing enough to warrant a Congressional investigation. . . .
Yet none of this information found its way into Congress's joint committee 
report on the attacks, and it was not even tangentially referenced in the nearly
600 pages of the 9/11 Commission's final report."

Ketcham adds: "What is perhaps most damning is that the Israelis' celebration on
the New Jersey waterfront occurred in the first sixteen minutes after the 
initial crash, when no one was aware this was a terrorist attack."

A former CIA counterterrorism officer told Ketcham: "There was no question but 
that [the order to close down the investigation] came from the White House. It 
was immediately assumed at CIA headquarters that this basically was going to be 
a cover-up so that the Israelis would not be implicated in any way in 9/11. Bear
in mind that this was a political issue, not a law enforcement or intelligence 
issue. If somebody says we don't want the Israelis implicated in this - we know 
that they've been spying the hell out of us, we know that they possibly had 
information in advance of the attacks, but this would be a political nightmare 
to deal with."

According to Ketcham the media and U.S. government have been silenced by "the 
Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), which 
operated in tandem with the two most highly visible powerhouse Israel lobbyists,
the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the American Israel Public Affairs 
Committee (AIPAC)."

"It's plausible that the intelligence prompting the shutdown of the [Islamic] 
Holy Land Foundation came from 'art student' spies in the Richardson area", 
writes Ketcham.

Commissioners or the government scientists at the National Institute of 
Standards and Technology" agreed to participate in the debate scheduled for 
March 10 in Charleston, South Carolina.

VIDEO: The 9/11 Solution

"How was it that these stories - based on no fact, no research and no inquiry - 
appeared in full blown form so quickly on US news networks and then became part 
of the core myths of what happened on 9/11?"

Meet Jerome Hauer who just happened to be available for an interview by Dan 
Rather on 9/11. His story: "No, I, uh, my sense is just the velocity of the 
plane and the fact that you have a plane filled with fuel hitting that building,
uh, that burned, uh, the velocity of that plane, uh, certainly, uh, uh, had an 
impact on the structure itself, and then the fact that it burned and you had 
that intense heat, uh, probably weakened the structure as well, uh, and I think 
it, uh, was, uh, simply the, uh, the planes hitting the buildings, and, and 
causing the collapse."

It is reported that Jerome Hauer was Managing Director of Kroll Associates, a 
well-established security firm serving clients in the military and the US 
government, and on 9/11 Kroll was in charge of security for the World Trade 
Center complex.
