Forgetting Torture: Lee Hamilton, John Brennan, and Abu Zubaydah
26 February 2013
The pervasive news surrounding the confirmation hearing of John Brennan, Obama’s nominee for CIA director, is paralleled by another, related story that has been largely ignored by the U.S. media. That is the story of the man called Abu Zubaydah, whose alleged torture testimony, obtained by the CIA while Brennan was the head of the agency’s Terrorist Threat Center, built the foundation for the official account of 9/11.

Secret CIA black sites and globalizing torture
6 February 2013
Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Central Intelligence Agency embarked on a highly classified program of secret detention and extraordinary rendition of terrorist suspects. The program was designed to place detainee interrogations beyond the reach of law. Suspected terrorists were seized and secretly flown across national borders to be interrogated by foreign governments that used torture, or by the CIA itself in clandestine “black sites” using torture techniques.

The Road to Armageddon: The Insane Drive for American Hegemony Threatens Life on Earth
26 February 2010
The Washington Times is a newspaper that looks with favor upon the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars of aggression in the Middle East and favors making terrorists pay for 9/11. Therefore, I was surprised to learn on February 24 that the most popular story on the paper’s website for the past three days was the “Inside the Beltway” report, “Explosive News,” about the 31 press conferences in cities in the US and abroad on February 19 held by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of professionals which now has 1,000 members.

Kurt Sonnenfeld : Exclusive interview
9/11 FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public
22 June 2009
As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent one month filming 29 tapes: "What I saw at certain moments and in certain places ... is very disturbing!" He never handed them over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since. Kurt Sonnenfeld lives in exile in Argentina, where he wrote « El Perseguido » (the persecuted). His recently-published book tells the story of his unending nightmare and drives another nail into the coffin of the government’s account of the 9/11 events. Below is an exclusive interview by Voltairenet.

Kurt Sonnenfeld: an inconvenient 9/11 witness
22 June 2009
Kurt Sonnenfeld’s statement at the presentation of his book El Perseguido (The Persecuted) on May 8, 2009, at the 35th Annual Buenos Aires Book Fair in Argentina, where he lives in exile since 2003. In it, Sonnenfeld tells the history of his persecution at the hands of U.S. authorities over the course of more than seven years after his official mission to Ground Zero as FEMA’s videographer ... an experience that turned him into an inconvenient witness.

9/11: Time for a Second Look
19 April 2009
Professor David Ray Griffin, renowned author of a series of series of eye-opening books that recount his painstaking research into the attacks of September 11, 2001, is on a tour of several major European cities . On the strength of mounting scientific evidence which casts serious doubt on the official account, it is indeed time for a second look at 9/11. As Professor Griffin says, “9/11 has affected us all", and it is time for the peoples of the world to support the scientific and professional leaders from all walks of life who are calling for a new investigation. 9/11 and the so-called "war on terror" are still part of the official rhetoric and continue to serve as the rationale underpinning the ongoing military offensives abroad and the erosion of civil liberties at (...)
Lecture given by Mr Dick Marty
"Does one have to fight tyranny with the instruments of the tyrants?"
22 March 2007
After a lot of research into the CIA abductions and the CIA secret flights in Europe, Dick Marty has proven at length, that it is not about the individual cases, because generally, they have become the norm. The President of the Commitee on Legal Affairs of the Council of Europe has concluded, in the end, that an organized system acts in public- if not in fact with an active agreement from the European states.
