Ahmadinejad calls for 9/11 tribunal
Sat Sep 25, 2010 4:55PM
Iran's president describes as 'naive' the US government's response to his earlier comments about the 9/11 attacks, calling for a special tribunal to investigate the incident.
"If certain individuals are responsible for the September 11 incident, a fair and independent tribunal must probe the matter," IRIB News quoted President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as speaking to reporters upon his arrival in Tehran from week-long visit to New York on Saturday.
"Even these people should be allowed to appear in court and employ a lawyer. If they are found guilty, they should be punished. If they are not available for [prosecution], their names must be announced to regional nations," he added.
He said few people, who deem themselves as the ruler of the world, make remarks on behalf of all nations and interfere in their affairs and added that the era of bullying has passed.
Ahmadinejad said he had sent a letter to the United Nations secretary general, calling for the formation of a truth-finding committee last year and added, "of course I knew if he is not under pressure from world public opinion, he will not have the ability to take action."
He noted the US government made "one-sided claims" about the 9/11 attacks, saying it assumed the position of plaintiff and judge while demands others to accept whatever it says.
On Friday, US President Barack Obama denounced as hateful and inexcusable remarks by his Iranian counterpart that the US government may have been behind 9/11.
"It was offensive. It was hateful," Obama said in interview excerpts released by the White House.
"And particularly for him to make the statement here in Manhattan, just a little north of Ground Zero, where families lost their loved ones," he said. "For him to make a statement like that was inexcusable."
The Iranian president had questioned the official account of the September 11 attacks on US soil, suggesting that US officials were involved in the matter.
"It is necessary to re-listen to the black box of [the plane used in] September 11 attacks," Ahmadinejad said.
"If Americans have strong evidence proving the September 11 attacks have been carried out by terrorists, they should present them [to the tribunal]," he said.
"This is our legal right to ask for a truth-finding committee to investigate the incident," Ahmadinejad said.
"September 11 became a pretext for pressuring Middle Eastern nations and for violating their rights."
"You (American officials) caused the September 11 event and now you are accusing every nation that stands against you and seeks to maintain its independence of cooperating with terrorism," he said.
"There is no logic and justification to use the presence of few terrorists as a pretext to send troops to Afghanistan, occupy Iraq and today bombard the Pakistani people," he explained.
Ahmadinejad said the Iranian nation is a victim of terrorism and added, "Iranians will not permit terrorists to put Muslims and the entire Middle East under pressure through an event with ambiguous facts."
The Iranian president arrived in New York on September 18 to attend the 65th United Nations General Assembly.
New 9/11 FOIA video shows cars and buses melted by pyroclastic cloud
This video is very interesting indeed.
Ahmadinejad tells it straight at the UN: most people think 9/11 was an inside job!
UNITED NATIONS | (Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the United Nations on Thursday most people believe the U.S. government was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001, prompting the U.S. and European delegations to leave the hall in protest. FULL SPEECH:
Another theory, he said, was "that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime." Ahmadinejad usually refers to Israel as the "Zionist regime."
"The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view," Ahmadinejad told the 192-nation assembly, calling on the United Nations to establish "an independent fact-finding group" to look into the events of September 11.
As in past years, the U.S. delegation walked out during Ahmadinejad's speech. It was joined by all 27 European Union delegations and several other countries.
Mark Kornblau, spokesman for the U.S. mission to the United Nations, said Ahmadinejad chose "to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable.
White House spokesman Bill Burton said President Barack Obama thought the comments "utterly outrageous and offensive -- especially in the city where the 9/11 attacks occurred."EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the remarks were "outrageous and unacceptable."
Ahmadinejad said some evidence that could support alternative theories had been "covered up" -- passports located in the rubble and a video of an unknown individual who had been "involved in oil deals with some American officials."
As he had in past years, the Iranian president used the General Assembly podium to attack Iran's other archfoe, Israel, and to defend the right of his country to a nuclear program that Western powers fear is aimed at developing arms.
"This regime (Israel), which enjoys the absolute support of some Western countries, regularly threatens the countries in the region and continues publicly announced assassination of Palestinian figures and others, while Palestinian defenders ... are labeled as terrorists and anti-Semites," he said.
"All values, even the freedom of expression, in Europe and the United States are being sacrificed at the altar of Zionism," Ahmadinejad said.
The Iranian president previously raised doubts about the Holocaust of the Jews in World War Two and said Israel had no right to exist.
Tehran has been hit with four rounds of U.N. sanctions for refusing to halt its nuclear enrichment program. Obama earlier told the assembly the door to diplomacy was still open for Iran, but it needed to prove its atomic program is peaceful, as it says it is.
On Wednesday, foreign ministers from the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany said they hoped for a negotiated solution to the standoff with Tehran.
Ahmadinejad criticized the Security Council for imposing sanctions on his country, saying the penalties were "destroying the remaining credibility" of the 15-nation body.

Mega corporations merge with the feudal super-state
This plan, which of course is nothing less than a brutal power grab by a malevolent clique of corporatist tyrants, may not go ahead, but the mere fact that it has been floated without causing an uproar in parliament or the media must be a cause of great concern to all who respect the basic sovereign rights of the individual which have been enshrined in law since the Magna Carta.
Indeed this policy, if enacted, would return the British people to feudal servitude, with all citizens becoming essentially vassals of a mega-corporation/super-state which would then be able to control the most basic aspect of their lives, namely the simple ability to pay for food and shelter.
In other news tonight we look at the latest vaccine controversies, with a new report showing that young children were more likely to end up in hospital because of side-effects from a leading flu vaccine than they were from the illness itself. We also look at the case of Hannah Poling, who regressed developmentally after being given nine vaccines in one day, aged just 18 months. The family has been awarded $1.5 million by the Federal Vaccine Court, but in a shocking development, the case has been sealed, preventing future litigants from gaining access to the evidence or arguments in the case.
Finally we look at the heart-breaking story of Matt and Janet Thompson, whose cattle feedlot business was forced to shut down after a three year battle with the government over greenhouse gas abatement rulings which they characterise as "evironmental extremism". The punitive actions of government bureucrats in this case led to the suicide of their farm manager and bankruptcy for the family. If you would like to help Matt and Janet, you can find more information here.

9/11, The Bare Naked Truth
Abby Martin | 21 Septemebr 2010
Yesterday Magazine is a San Diego based music magazine that doesn't shy away from controversy. Their second issue just launched and it features a twelve page spread on 9/11 truth. The layout is an interview with four members of San Diego 9/11 Truth alongside David Dees illustrations and my artwork. They have an awesome, slick publication that interviews the best bands in San Diego and their publication is widely distributed throughout the city. I am sure this article will stir some dialogue...
Virulent CNN hit piece conflates 9/11 truth with racism
At 04:22 Paul Zahn says: "You hear this stuff, and it just makes you sick to your stomach, there is absolutely no evidence that anybody other than Al Qaeda was involved with this attack".
That is not news reporting, or editorial opinion, that is blatant war propaganda.
Paula Zahn is a war criminal.
I look forward to seeing her in the Hague, begging for clemency.

New high quality footage of WTC attacks
"Some footage I shot on 9-11-01. This is never before seen footage and has never been released. I chose to upload it because I feel it has historical importance. Like many New Yorkers I know some of the people who have passed and I know many people who have lost a loved one. Some of the footage is considered graphic as is some of the language. Unfortunately, this is a day I will never forget. May God Bless those who we lost on that terrible day."
Cindy Sheehan: “I am a 9/11 truther”
13 September 2010 | Cosmos
Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has given support to the cause of 9/11 truth many times over the past few years but on the eve of the ninth anniversary, she made her position clearer than ever before. To an enthusiastic packed house at All Souls Church in New York City, Sheehan declared “I am a 9/11 truther. I do think it was an inside job.”
Sheehan lost her son Casey in the Iraq invasion and has since dedicated her life to ending war and injustice. She is most widely known for setting up camp on the edge of George W. Bush’s Texas property in 2005, demanding that the president answer one single question from a mother whose son died in the war.
Since that time, Sheehan has continued her activism. She is a fierce critic of the Obama administration’s continued occupations and drone attacks, and recently founded Peace of the Action to further her anti-war activities.
On Friday, in the crowded All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, Sheehan spoke of many injustices related to the war, both at home and abroad. She spoke of being tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets while protesting. She spoke of the recently reported “Kill Squad” in Afghanistan, where members of the US military collected the fingers of slaughtered civilians for souvenirs. “That’s not something new,” Sheehan said.
She urged the crowd to consider the lives of the Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani people and said, “We’re the occupiers – it’s up to us to do something about it”.
When the topic turned to 9/11, Sheehan stated “I am a 9/11 truther.” She had to pause while the appreciative crowd cheered loudly and then said, “I do think it was an inside job. We just don’t know – I don’t know – how far inside it went. But, you know, I’m sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it.”
While not making it her main issue, Sheehan has spoken freely regarding her opinions on 9/11 truth over the past few years. She has offered her support to the 9/11 truth movement in various interviews and participated in conferences. Sheehan also serves as an adviser to the recently launched 9/11 Truth News (911truthnews.com).
Citing the 30,000 mostly young people who die each day from starvation, Sheehan left the crowd with this thought: “Every day, ten 9/11s occur around the world. It’s time to start acting locally, but thinking globally.”
Dennis Kucinich: 911 Truth and Reconciliation
On September 11, 2010, Congressman Dennis Kucinich published a video message on YouTube calling for “9/11 truth and reconciliation.”
Kucinich is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from Ohio 10th district and is a former candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008 elections.
“We will never be able to recover from the tremendous blow which struck this Nation on 9/11 if we do not unfold the truth for the American People.
The truth is, in the name of retaliation for 9/11, we attacked a Nation which did not attack us. The truth is the war against Iraq was based on lies. Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction, had no capability or intention of attacking the United States, had nothing to do with Al-Quaeda as well as 9/11.
The truth most me known. And those who led the United States at that time, who took us on the path of continuous destruction, must be held accountable if we are to ever have this terrible burden of 9/11 transformed to a place where America can regain its role as a Nation among Nations.
We separated ourselves from the World’s community in the name of security. We invaded and occupied Afghanistan, a country who’s government is hopelessly corrupt that we think the only way we can prop it up is to participate in the corruption.
That is not what America is about. We need the truth to be told about Iraq and about Afghanistan. We have a right to defend our Nation. But it’s the truth which is a defense and the truth which sets us free.
We must reclaim our willingness to stand for what’s right in America and not be fearful to challenge those who have a totally different agenda that has nothing to do with the truth.
Truth and reconciliation. This is time for us to start this process that can bring us together, that can reclaim the unity which is a powerful force in America, that can reclaim the love which we have for each other, that can make it possible for us to reconnect with the world community. Not based on the force of our arms but based on the power of our integrity. “
