Corbett Report

Richard Gage, AIA, of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (ae911truth.org) joins James Corbett to discuss the new global initiative to raise awareness of 9/11 Truth, ReThink911 (rethink911.org). They talk about the explosive evidence for the destruction of the towers, as well as how ReThink911 will help to spread awareness of this information through a coordinated campaign of advertisements, PR, grassroots activism, and congressional outreach during the 12th anniversary of 9/11. They also discuss how interested and concerned citizens across America and around the globe can take part in the campaign.

Talk about The Comeback Spy. Prince Bandar bin Sultan, aka Bandar Bush (for Dubya he was like family), spectacularly resurfaced after one year in speculation-drenched limbo (was he or was he not dead, following an assassination attempt in July 2012). And he was back in the limelight no less than in a face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Saudi King Abdullah, to quote Bob Dylan, “is not busy being born, he’s busy dying”. At least he was able to pick up a pen and recently appoint Bandar as head of the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate; thus in charge of the joint US-Saudi master plan for Syria.

The four-hour meeting between Bandar Bush and Vlad the Hammer by now has acquired mythic status. Essentially, according to diplomatic leaks, Bandar asked Vlad to drop Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and forget about blocking a possible UN Security Council resolution on a no-fly zone (as if Moscow would ever allow a replay of UN resolution 1973 against Libya). In return the House of Saud would buy loads of Russian weapons.

Vlad, predictably, was not impressed. Not even when Bandar brazenly insisted that whatever form a post-Assad situation would take, the Saudis will be “completely” in control. Vlad – and Russian intelligence – already knew it. But then Bandar went over the top, promising that Saudi Arabia would not allow any Gulf Cooperation Council member country – as in Qatar – to invest in Pipelineistan across Syria to sell natural gas to Europe and thus damage Russian – as in Gazprom’s – interests.

A civil libertarian reflects on the dangers of the surveillance state.

What is privacy? Why should we want to hold onto it? Why is it important, necessary, precious?

Is it just some prissy relic of the pretechnological past?

We talk about this now because of Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency revelations, and new fears that we are operating, all of us, within what has become or is becoming a massive surveillance state. They log your calls here, they can listen in, they can read your emails. They keep the data in mammoth machines that contain a huge collection of information about you and yours. This of course is in pursuit of a laudable goal, security in the age of terror.

Is it excessive? It certainly appears to be. Does that matter? Yes. Among other reasons: The end of the expectation that citizens’ communications are and will remain private will probably change us as a people, and a country.

***
Among the pertinent definitions of privacy from the Oxford English Dictionary: “freedom from disturbance or intrusion,” “intended only for the use of a particular person or persons,” belonging to “the property of a particular person.” Also: “confidential, not to be disclosed to others.” Among others, the OED quotes the playwright Arthur Miller, describing the McCarthy era: “Conscience was no longer a private matter but one of state administration.”

Privacy is connected to personhood. It has to do with intimate things—the innards of your head and heart, the workings of your mind—and the boundary between those things and the world outside.

A loss of the expectation of privacy in communications is a loss of something personal and intimate, and it will have broader implications. That is the view of Nat Hentoff, the great journalist and civil libertarian. He is 88 now and on fire on the issue of privacy. “The media has awakened,” he told me. “Congress has awakened, to some extent.” Both are beginning to realize “that there are particular constitutional liberty rights that [Americans] have that distinguish them from all other people, and one of them is privacy.”

Interesting commentary but not recommended. The country has enough graffiti already.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been going around the world as well as regularly appearing on American television telling everyone who might be inclined to listen that “The [Iranian] president was replaced but the goal of the regime remains obtaining nuclear weapons to threaten Israel, the Middle East and the safety of the world.” He has repeatedly described Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” The phrase originated in the New Testament and is attributed to Jesus, which likely makes Netanyahu cringe if he is aware of its provenance, but he is using the expression so often that he really should seek to copyright it. The phrase is meant to suggest that Rouhani is pretending to be a moderate interested in negotiations over issues dividing his country from the western powers when all he really is doing is buying time for Tehran to further advance its nuclear weapons program.

It is presumably a tactic that Netanyahu is quite familiar with as it is precisely what Israel has been doing relating to its ever expanding West Bank settlements. Peace talks began yesterday, shortly after Israel rendered them irrelevant by announcing the building of 2100 new homes in eleven different locations, some in Arab East Jerusalem and also deep in the West Bank. Nearly everyone who is not a complete apologist for Israel agrees that the settlements are the number one obstacle to any peace agreement with the Palestinians. Netanyahu has no desire to halt the process whereby the West Bank is being subsumed into Greater Israel, but he is willing to enter into negotiations to serve as a distraction while enabling the expansion on Arab land to continue.

AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, shared the vital 9/11 information with other AIA members at our convention “evidence booth”

A dozen AE911Truth volunteers spent three very productive days with several thousand architects in Denver last month.

The occasion? The American Institute of Architects’ annual convention, which drew 14,000 architects to the Colorado Convention Center on June 20–21. We were certainly strong contenders for the attention of these technical professionals, and we raised a lot of eyebrows as we shared the explosive 9/11 evidence.

AE911Truth has an interesting history with the American Institute of Architects. We have previously attended AIA conventions in Boston, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., where we were able to reach and educate thousands of architects.

In the past, the AIA has been lukewarm to us – encouraging us to host booths and unofficial presentations and yet refusing to meet with us to discuss the findings of almost 2,000 architects (including six AIA fellows and over 100 AIA members) who have signed our petition calling for a new 9/11 investigation. We preceded this particular convention by sending a series of letters to the president and board of the AIA, which culminated in a comprehensive summary document of WTC evidence.

As we wrote to President Mickey Jacob, FAIA, and the entire Board of Directors, “We are also requesting again a private meeting with the AIA Board to explain our findings. Unless the AIA is prepared to re-visit the evidence, as subsequently uncovered, and adopt a proactive stance, you may find yourself on the wrong side of history as the ‘Official Report’ further unravels and the true cause of the collapse of the three towers becomes known to a growing and unsettled populace.”

With the help of many dedicated volunteers such as Larry Landon on our Graphics Team, Joe Heller on our Printing Team, and donors such as Nick Guccione, Oleg Kis, and others, we fashioned and distributed booth banners that provided a systematic outline and illustration of the evidence. These banners can be downloaded for only $1 by petition signers.

Architects seem to vary little from the rest of the public in their confusion about evidence that contradicts their worldview. About half of those who stopped by were genuinely interested in viewing the evidence. Most of them took our latest DVD, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, and were receptive to the idea of follow-up calls to see what they thought about it. Many of them immediately signed our petition calling for a new WTC investigation!

However, like the general public, about half of the attendees either ignored us completely and walked by, acted with some degree of disdain, or were honest enough to let us know that they disagreed with us. The latter turned into the most interesting conversations, because these individuals were obviously emotionally attached to their positions and usually unable to focus on any given element of evidence for any significant length of time – jumping to some rationalization that they had seen on TV or heard from a friend in an effort to justify not having to take in this new information.

In fact, even very intelligent architects can still believe the most blatant falsehoods, in total opposition to the laws of physics, as needed to keep their “ship of mind” upright. For instance, one architect had no problem with the “free-fall” of World Trade Center Building 7. “Of course … how else is it going to fall? It’s so heavy,” he said. I answered, “All 82 columns had to be removed virtually at once – and then synchronistically timed, floor by floor, for at least 8 floors (the distance the building dropped in free-fall).” The response? “It’s just so heavy – all that weight … the columns just gave in.” We dealt with a lot of “magical thinking” from well-meaning architects.

In another astonishing example of denial, an architect from Iowa completely dismissed the devastating information I was conveying, simply because I had forgotten the name of the architecture firm that designed the original Building 7. (Anyone know? It was Emery Roth & Sons.)

Another stated, “It was the Muslims that did it.” I responded, “But NIST said ‘normal office fires’ brought down WTC 7.” I don’t care, if it wasn’t for the Muslims, then none of this would have happened.”

On the other hand, most who stopped by were open to the evidence and came with a willingness to hear new information and promised to review our latest documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out. Many of them had heard of us, and a few indicated that they had already told colleagues about this vital information.

Americans will soon be locked into an unaccountable police state unless US Representatives and Senators find the courage to ask questions and to sanction the executive branch officials who break the law, violate the Constitution, withhold information from Congress, and give false information about their crimes against law, the Constitution, the American people and those in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Guantanamo, and elsewhere. Congress needs to use the impeachment power that the Constitution provides and cease being subservient to the lawless executive branch. The US faces no threat that justifies the lawlessness and abuse of police powers that characterize the executive branch in the 21st century.

Impeachment is the most important power of Congress. Impeachment is what protects the citizens, the Constitution, and the other branches of government from abuse by the executive branch. If the power to remove abusive executive branch officials is not used, the power ceases to exist. An unused power is like a dead letter law. Its authority disappears. By acquiescing to executive branch lawlessness, Congress has allowed the executive branch to place itself above law and to escape accountability for its violations of law and the Constitution.

National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper blatantly lied to Congress and remains in office. Keith B. Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency, has also misled Congress, and he remains in office. Attorney General Holder avoids telling Congress the truth on just about every subject, and he also remains in office. The same can be said for President Obama, one of the great deceivers of our time, who is so adverse to truth that truth seldom finds its way out of his mouth.

If an American citizen lies to a federal investigator, even if not under oath, the citizen can be arrested, prosecuted, and sent to prison. Yet, these same federal personnel can lie to Congress and to citizens with impunity. Whatever the American political system is, it has nothing whatsoever to do with accountable government. In Amerika no one is accountable but citizens, who are accountable not only to law but also to unaccountable charges for which no evidence is required.

Congress has the power to impeach any presidential appointee as well as the president. In the 1970s Congress was going to impeach President Richard Nixon simply because he lied about when he learned of the Watergate burglary. To avoid impeachment, Nixon resigned. In the 1990s, the House impeached President Bill Clinton for lying about his sexual affair with a White House intern. The Senate failed to convict, no doubt as many had sexual affairs of their own and didn’t want to be held accountable themselves.

In its response to Edward Snowden’s revelations about the nature and extent of NSA spying on Americans, the Obama administration has by this time gone through all the stages of grief: denial, reluctant acknowledgment, and – finally – acceptance of the reality that the jig is up.

Initially, we were told that this is really not anything new, and that we should all just move along. When that didn’t work, we were told that, yes, these programs are potentially intrusive, but we needn’t worry – since it’s all “legal,” our government is on the job, and “oversight” of the process is firmly in place. When this was exposed by Glenn Greenwald and the Guardian team as a palpable falsehood, the President himself went out to sell the Kool-Aid, assuring us that, although he is satisfied the NSA isn’t doing anything untoward, he understands why someone would assume so – and vaguely promised to put “reforms” in place.

To recap: whenever government officials have tried to reassure the public everything is right with the Fourth Amendment, claiming critics are simply exaggerating, they have been shown to be liars.

Their campaign of deception is underscored by recent revelations about the NSA funneling “intelligence” gathered from spying on Americans to two of the federal government’s most repressive agencies: the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Methinks there are some other NSA whistleblowers who haven’t “come out,” so to speak, or else Greenwald and the Guardian are generously sharing material given to them by Snowden with other news outlets, because Reuters came out with the DEA-NSA connection, citing documents which show:

“A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

“Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.”

When the going gets tough, count on the Ministry of Truth to get going.

The end of Ramadan was imminent. The jihadi chattering classes of that fuzzy entity, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), went on overdrive. It was jailbreak galore from Libya to Pakistan via Iraq. And all this in perfect synch with two successive fatwas issued by that perennial bogeyman, former Osama bin Laden sidekick Ayman “Doctor Evil” al-Zawahiri.

Imagine a rushed crisis meeting at the highest levels of the Orwellian/Panopticon complex: “Gentlemen, we have a golden opportunity here. We are under siege by defector spy Edward Snowden – liberated by the Soviets – and that terrorist hack Greenwald. Snowden may be winning: even among US public opinion, there’s a growing perception we may be more of a threat than al-Qaeda.

So we must show we are vigilantly protecting our freedoms. Yes; we’re gonna scream Terra, Terra, Terra!”

Instantly, we have the closing, with much fanfare, of plenty of US embassies and consulates in the “Muslim world” and a State Department “worldwide” travel alert – soon expanded by Interpol. Confusion ensues – with many trying to figure out whether backpacking in Thailand or eating fresh caviar in Baku is a surefire way of not being blown up.

Instantly, we also have US and Western corporate media falling in love with the Terra Terra Terra meme all over again. And woe to those who think this has anything to do with Islamophobia. You thought that Terra was gone? No, Terra is omnipresent, omniscient, lurking everywhere. Terra Wants You. Trains and boats and planes – you’re nowhere safe.
