WTC7 Truth calling... it's for you.

The NIST-NCST Committee on WTC7 held a public meeting on Dec. 18, 2007 (a conference call!) on the progress of the WTC7 report. The call contains a number of stunning admissions by NIST regarding the WTC7 fires, as well as interesting questions from NIST committee members and powerful statements from three citizen commentators. An unbelievable and under-reported artifact...
Comments by a prominent architect for Truth Richard Gage...
The schedule for the continued cover-up is as follows:
1/08 Complete analysis of initiating event.
3/08 Complete analysis of global building response to initiating event.
4/08 Identify leading collapse hypothesis.
5/08 Complete draft reports for NIST Team review.
6/08 Revised draft reports transmitted for NIST level and NCST Advisory Committee Review.
7/08 Release draft reports for public comment.
8/08 Release final reports on WTC 7 Investigation.
Mark your calendar... but don't hold your breath.

UPDATE: 1.30.08
From: NIST
Subject: Re: WTC7

The deadline of 1/08 "Complete analysis of initiating event is an internal deadline for completing this aspect of the analysis of the collapse of WTC 7 and does not correspond to the release of a report on this work. NIST will release a set of draft final reports fully documenting the results of all the analyses conducted for WTC 7, NIST's findings and conclusions, and any recommendations that might result. As noted in the earlier reply, we anticipate releasing the draft final reports for public comment in July 2008.

9/11 Panel Study Finds That CIA Withheld Tapes

By Mark Mazzetti - The New York Times

Washington - A review of classified documents by former members of the Sept. 11 commission shows that the panel made repeated and detailed requests to the Central Intelligence Agency in 2003 and 2004 for documents and other information about the interrogation of operatives of Al Qaeda, and were told by a top C.I.A. official that the agency had "produced or made available for review" everything that had been requested.

A seven-page memorandum prepared by Philip D. Zelikow, the panel's former executive director, concluded that "further investigation is needed" to determine whether the C.I.A.'s withholding of the tapes from the commission violated federal law.

In interviews this week, the two chairmen of the commission, Lee H. Hamilton and Thomas H. Kean, said their reading of the report had convinced them that the agency had made a conscious decision to impede the Sept. 11 commission's inquiry.

Mr. Kean said the panel would provide the memorandum to the federal prosecutors and congressional investigators who are trying to determine whether the destruction of the tapes or withholding them from the courts and the commission was improper.

A C.I.A. spokesman said that the agency had been prepared to give the Sept. 11 commission the interrogation videotapes, but that commission staff members never specifically asked for interrogation videos.

The review by Mr. Zelikow does not assert that the commission specifically asked for videotapes, but it quotes from formal requests by the commission to the C.I.A. that sought "documents," "reports" and "information" related to the interrogations.

Mr. Kean, a Republican and a former governor of New Jersey, said of the agency's decision not to disclose the existence of the videotapes, "I don't know whether that's illegal or not, but it's certainly wrong." Mr. Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana, said that the C.I.A. "clearly obstructed" the commission's investigation.

Have some Koolaid with that Ethanol...

WASHINGTON -- Congress by a wide margin approved the first increase in automobile fuel economy in 32 years (what's the big hurry?) on Tuesday, and President Bush has signaled he will accept the mandates on the auto industry. The energy bill, boosting mileage by 40% to 35 miles per gallon, passed the House 314-100 and now goes to the White House, following the Senate's approved last week, said the Associated Press.

In a dramatic shift to spur increased demand for nonfossil fuels, the bill also requires a sixfold increase in ethanol use to 36 billion gallons a year by 2022, a boon to farmers (see "Axis of Evil" post below) . And it requires new energy efficiency standards for an array of appliances, lighting and commercial and government buildings. But does NOTHING to promote solar or wind energy production.

"This is a choice between yesterday and tomorrow" on energy policy, declared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.), who was closely involved in crafting the legislation. "And we choose YESTERDAY!"

While some dipshit Republican lawmakers criticized the bill for failing to address the need for more domestic oil and natural gas production, 95 GOP lawmakers joined Democrats in support of the bill.

"This legislation is a historic turning point in energy policy," said Majority Follower Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) because it will cut demand for foreign oil and promote nonfossil fuels that will cut greenhouse gases linked to global warming. WTF? How will ethanol, which uses more energy to produce than it creates, cut greenhouse gases?

It increases energy efficiency "from light bulbs to light trucks," said dim bulb Rep. John Dingelberry (D.-Mich.), a longtime protector of the auto industry who was key to a compromise (read: "gutting") on vehicle efficiency increases.

9/11 Was An Inside Job, Says Former President of Italy

from - Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 12:07:37 PST
In the November 30 issue of Corriere della Sera, Italy's oldest and most widely read newspaper, Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga stated that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.

"All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe...know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan."

Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who was first elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of Italy in 1985, remained President until 1992. More about this former "insider" and whistleblower:

Cossiga's tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio.

This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and '80s.

Gladio's specialty was to carry out what they termed "false flag" operations-terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

Another translation from the Italian article:

From circles around Palazzo Chigi, nerve center of direction of Italian intelligence, it is noted that the non-authenticity of the video is testified from the fact that Osama bin Laden in it 'confessed' that Al Qaeda would have been the author of the attack of the 11 September to the Twin Towers in New York, while all of the democratic circles of America and of Europe, with in the forefront those of the Italian centre-left, now know well that the disastrous attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, "You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcher Webster Tarpley saying "The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel."

Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga's assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating.

It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America�s propaganda machine in print or on TV.

Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot.
