The History Commons Needs Your Support

Historycommons.org (fka cooperativeresearch.org) is a unique and useful web-based tool for documenting facts that are suppressed or spun in Establishment narratives, for researching complex events and sometimes murky relationships between entities and events, and for educating the public (thus increasing transparency and facilitating accountability). This website, first as cooperativeresearch.org, and then as historycommons.org, has existed continuously since 2002, but it is now in dire need of financial assistance; if funding does not significantly increase, the site may go offline by the end of this summer.

I’m retracting the article originally posted here as it has been brought to my attention that threats prosecuted under Section 422 of the California Penal Code are sometimes referred to as “terrorist threats.”

March 20, 2010, thousands of people gathered across from the White House in D.C. and thousands more gathered around the U.S. to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the illegal U.S. attack on Iraq, and to protest Obama’s continuation of the violent occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, and other abuses of power.

Join the Appeal for Truth about 9/11 – 911truth.org

911Truth.org has updated the Truth Statement for 2009- this statement caused a great deal of controversy when Glenn Beck reported that Obama Green Jobs Advisor Van Jones- along with around 100 other luminaries and nearly 50 9/11 victims family members- had endorsed its call for an investigation into questions that were ignored or inadequately addressed by the 9/11 Commission. The new statement is open for endorsement, if you support full disclosure regarding 9/11.

This updated statement was released in conjunction with an article by Peter Dale Scott on some of the issues surrounding the 9/11 issue.

Bradblog Breaks Down Sibel Edmonds’ Bombshell Deposition

August 8, 2009 Sibel Edmonds gave 4 hours of testimony, naming members of Congress, and State and Defense Dept officials as being complicit in treason, trafficking in arms and nuclear secrets, money laundering, bribery, blackmail, obstruction of justice, cover up and more. The 4 hours of video and well over 200 pages of transcript are a lot to wade through, but Brad Friedman is taking the time to pull out some of the devastating details, that so far no ‘mainstream’ media, and only a few alt/indy media, have seen fit to report on, and no member of Congress or US government official has commented on…

Peter Dale Scott Does Not Endorse the Pentagon Flyover Theory (and Neither Do I) – Erik Larson

Dr. Peter Dale Scott, researcher, author and UC Berkeley Professor Emeritus, recently praised the latest video from CIT, ‘National Security Alert’. However, due to receiving many emails critical of CIT’s work, he issued a qualifying statement, which I asked for and received permission to post publicly. CIT’s film presents witnesses whose statements indicate, or seem to indicate, that American Airlines Flight 77 did not fly the path that we have been told knocked down light poles and caused the damage at the Pentagon, as well as the testimony of an apparent eyewitness to a plane that flew over the building. The film also contends that it is “conclusive” that AA 77 did not hit the Pentagon, that instead it flew over the building. However, in his qualifying statement, Dr. Scott says, “I do not personally believe it.” He explains, “All I endorsed was their assemblage of witnesses…. I do not draw the conclusions from their testimony that CIT does.”
