Courage To Resist - Music Video in support of Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks, & GI war resisters! Private Bradley Manning was charged with the release of a secret video of US pilots slaughtering Iraqi civilians. Wikileaks released the video and it went viral on the internet under the name of "Collateral Murder Video". Apparently, the US government considers it a crime to expose war crimes and cover-ups of crimes. The organization known as "Courage To Resist" supports people in the US military who have come to believe that they were lied to and that the wars they are being sent to fight are illegal. Nicole Mitchell and Marc Hall are just two of the many GI's who have taken the path of resistance to wars for corporate empire. For more information, visit www.couragetoresist.org

Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive? If he is dead, when did he die?
Was he really the "mastermind of 9/11", or not?
How can we know the truth?
One thing we know is that Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset used to recruit Muslim fundamentalists to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. What else do we know for sure? Why would Obama claim to have ordered a kill on Osama, and then dispose of his body at sea? Does that sound like the American way of justice?
Dr. David Ray Griffin published “Osama bin Laden Dead or Alive” in 2009. It's a good read today! Evidence of fraud is abundant. The questions he raises need to be answered. http://noliesradio.org/archives/3230
The Corporate media spin machine has cranked out an avalanche of "reports" on the "daring" execution of a supposedly-alive Osama bin Laden hiding in a “million dollar mansion” in Pakistan. The story of the amazing commando raid may end up being another high-tech production from the same folks who brought us the lies about Pat Tillman, Jessica Lynch, & WMD in Iraq. In the case of Pat Tillman, the "official glory story" was that he got killed in a shoot out with the Taliban. Later, as the Tillman family bravely pressed on and on for the truth, the story was amended to be "friendly fire". Then the military coroner report revealed that the evidence showed that Pat Tillman was shot "by 3 bullets to the forehead at 10 yards range". Ignored AP story:
In the case of Jessica Lynch, she refused to go along with the "official glory story". She testified to Congress that she was wounded by an explosion, not in a firefight. Iraqi hospital authorities informed the US military that she was alive and well and under their care. But the Pentagon sent a commando unit in there to "rescue the heroic soldier". Was the truth less important than having a recruitment poster boy and girl to use to lie to young people about corporate resource & domination wars?
In the aftermath of 9/11, we were all in "shock & awe" as the media reported “explosions” at the WTC (World Trade Center) and the Pentagon. This was rapidly revised to the "official story" that the jet fuel from the planes that hit the two tallest towers of the WTC complex "melted the steel" and caused their collapse. It's against the laws of physics! Both Dan Rather and Peter Jennings mused aloud as it was happening that the only way that steel frame buildings could be brought down by fire would be to "get at the inner structures" as in a "demolition". What's worse, the WTC buildings did not just collapse. They disintegrated to dust in 10 seconds! Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, did so in 7 seconds at around 5:30 that evening. In fact, on Sept 10, 2001 Dan Rather reported on CBS that Osama bin Laden was in a Pakistani military hospital getting dialysis treatments for kidney failure. Read about that here:
If you are asking yourself how "Muslim terrorists" could get access to the 3 WTC buildings to destroy them by demolition, that is a legitimate question. It also leads to the possibility that others would more likely have such access. Kevin Ryan, who worked for the company, Underwriters Laboratories Inc, that certified the steel in the WTC, lost his job when he raised questions about the government's NIST report. He worked with a team of scientists associated with “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” to examine dust from the WTC. They published a scientific “peer review” paper that was completely ignored by the corporate media because it showed photos of microscopic particles that indicate that "nano thermate" was used in the demolition.

A team of scientist and engineer published a for peer review paper in the Open Chemical Physics Journal: Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley, and Bradley R. Larsen. Read about the peer review paper here at: http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/41-articles/351-advanced-pyrotechnic-or-explosive-material-discovered-in-wtc-dust.html
Thermite is used in industrial demolitions. Adding sulfur makes it Thermate, which can melt steel. But only the US and some allied militaries would have access to "nano thermate". Kevin Ryan recently wrote an article on the question of access to the WTC.

Bush and Cheney resisted having a Commission set up to investigate the events of 9/11 for almost two years. Only when victim family members, particularly a group known as "The Jersey Girls", pressed on for the truth, did they create a commission. Bush named National Security Director Condoleezza Rice's assistant, Philip Zelikow, to be Executive Director. A cover-up was predictable.

David Ray Griffin spent most of his life as a professor of theology. But once he began to investigate 9/11 he produced many good books on the subject and he has spoken all over the world about it. The "official story" was very useful propaganda in support of wars and repressive laws, which violate the Constitution. They are bad for Americans and even worse for the corporate empire's victims. This "Guns & Butter" interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin by Bonnie Faulkner on KPFA about his book "Osama Bin Laden Dead of Alive" was originally broadcast in 2009. It was especially timely to re-broadcast this on May 2, 2011, a day after President Obama made a speech stating that he ordered a special ops unit into Pakistan to execute Osama bin Laden and to dump the body into the ocean. The President claimed he gave the order to dump the body of Osama bin Laden into the ocean out of respect for Muslim practice. Is such an act not closer to Mafia practice than Muslim practice? It certainly makes it impossible to verify that bin Laden was the one killed and that that was his body that they dumped at sea! DNA could have been acquired long ago during one of bin Laden's hospital visits for kidney failure.
