Deconstructing the 9/11 Dot Disconnection: a book review by Erik Larson

It is a non-controversial fact that the NSA, CIA and FBI missed a number of opportunities to disrupt the 9/11 plot. Many, but not all, of these failures were documented by the four main investigations that dealt with pre-9/11 intelligence failures: those by the Congressional Joint Inquiry, the 9/11 Commission, the Department of Justice Inspector General and the CIA Inspector General. The best-known investigation, the 9/11 Commission, ultimately concluded that 9/11 was preceded by “four kinds of failures: in imagination, policy, capabilities, and management” (339). This is the narrative largely held to by mainstream politicians and media, but these explanations do not credibly account for what happened at the NSA, CIA and FBI in the years, months and weeks leading up to 9/11. This has been demonstrated by a number of researchers, but Kevin Fenton’s* book, Disconnecting the Dots, has the most comprehensive documentation and in-depth analysis to date. Primarily using the official reports, the available source records and some reporting by mainstream media and journalists, Fenton documents how specific CIA and FBI officials engaged in deliberate efforts to protect the 9/11 plot from discovery and disruption by FBI investigators, and that the most probable explanation is that this was done in order to enable the 9/11 attacks.

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…

Sibel Edmonds Deposition: Deep Corruption Beneath the Surface

Aug 8, 2009, Sibel Edmonds gave a sworn deposition in which she testified to her knowledge of treasonous crimes and corruption involving current and former members of Congress and State and Defense Dept. officials. Given the nature of the deposition, the lines of questioning focused on Turkish espionage and services obtained through bribery and blackmail by Turkish officials and proxies. However, Edmonds has previously disclosed that the corruption involving U.S. officials also includes money laundering, trafficking in drugs, arms and nuclear secrets, U.S. support for Bin Laden/Al Qaeda, and obstruction of FBI investigations related to 9/11, before and after the attacks; she said these things came up “briefly” during the deposition. Edmonds learned of these things from wiretaps she listened to while working as a translator for the FBI in 2001-2002.

How the FBI and 9/11 Commission Suppressed Key Evidence about Hani Hanjour, alleged hijack pilot of AAL 77 by Mark Gaffney

According to most of the flight instructors he worked with, Hani Hanjour was a terrible pilot. Even so, he was “certified in April 1999 as an “Airplane Multi-Engine Land/Commercial Pilot” by Daryl Strong”, an FAA “designated pilot examiner”, and flight instructor “Eddie Shalev, who certified Hanjour to rent a Cessna 172 from Congressional Air Charters just three days after Marcel Bernard, the chief instructor at Freeway, refused to rent Hanjour the very same plane.” According to a 9/11 Commission staff ‘Memoranda for the Record’, Eddy Shalev is an Israeli national and “served in the Israeli Defense Forces”.
