'Wash Post' Cuts Ties to Pentagon Event after Protests
Editor & Publisher

Monday 15 August 2005

New York - The Washington Post announced tonight that it will cease its co-sponsorship of the Pentagon-organized Freedom Walk next month. The paper's involvement had drawn heat from within and outside the paper, with a guild committee today calling for the link to end.

The newspaper told the Department of Defense that it was pulling back on its offer of free ads for the event - a march up the mall ending with a concert by pro-war country singer Clint Black.

"As it appears that this event could become politicized, The Post has decided to honor the Washington area victims of 9/11 by making a contribution directly to the Pentagon Memorial Fund," said Eric Grant, a Post spokesman. "It is The Post's practice to avoid activities that might lead readers to question the objectivity of The Post's news coverage."

E&P was first to report on the internal dissent at the paper on Friday. Antiwar groups and liberal blogs joined in the protest in the days since.

The Pentagon expressed disappointment with the decision. It has called the event a memorial to 9/11 victims and a salute to our troops.

"Post news employees are subject to disciplinary action for participating in political activities that may be perceived as revelatory of personal opinions or bias," said a resolution passed Monday by leaders of The Post unit of the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild. "The Washington Post itself should be held to the same high standard. . . . The Guild supports The Post's stated intention of honoring the nation's veterans, including those who have served in Iraq. But the Post undermines this goal by lending its support to a political event that links the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to the war in Iraq - a link that The Post, in its reporting, has shown to be false."

The unit represents more than 1,400 Post employees.

In a related move, Post media writer Howard Kurtz noted his opposition to the Post sponsorship in an online chat with readers today. "I wish The Washington Post were not co-sponsoring this event. It is an operation by the Pentagon - a place that we devote substantial resources to covering - and therefore subject to all kinds of interpretations," he said in response to a reader question. "It is not the same, in my view, as the corporate side of The Post handing out awards to the best teachers or other kinds of nonpartisan civic activities."

Publisher Bo Jones did not return calls seeking comment on the resolution Monday, but told E&P on Friday that he would remove the Post as a sponsor of the "Freedom Walk" if the event turned out to be "partisan."

U.S. federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's Chicago grand jury has voted perjury and obstruction of justice indictments to the following members of the Bush Administration: President George W. Bush, Vice-President Richard Cheney, Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Cheney Chief of Staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, imprisoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller and former Senior Cheney advisor Mary Matalin.

A Chicago grand jury has indicted the President and Vice-President of the United States along with multiple high officials in the Bush administration


by Tom Flocco

Chicago -- August 2, 2005 -- -- U.S. federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s Chicago grand jury has voted perjury and obstruction of justice indictments to the following members of the Bush Administration: President George W. Bush, Vice-President Richard Cheney, Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Cheney Chief of Staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, imprisoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller and former Senior Cheney advisor Mary Matalin.

There were no indications given as to whether the President and his top staff members would appear publicly before cameras at the grand jury proceedings, given the gravity of the charges.

Besides the Valerie Plame CIA leak case, the Fitzgerald probe is reportedly far-reaching and expanding much deeper into past White House criminal acts involving Bush-Clinton drug money laundering in Mena, Arkansas to White House involvement in 9.11; but also for sending America’s young people to their deaths or to be maimed in Iraq and Afghanistan under false pretenses.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair was indicted for obstruction of justice and is reportedly consulting with members of Parliament and legal aides regarding how to avoid appearing in the U.S.A. for interrogation before Fitzgerald in Chicago.

The revelations emanated from sources close to the grand jury who spoke with federal whistleblower Thomas Heneghen in California who said White House Senior Advisor to the President Karl Rove was also indicted for perjury and was reportedly involved with Mary Matalin in a major Bush administration document shredding operation to cover-up evidence.


Heneghen had reported over ten days ago on a broadcast [Every Monday and Tuesday evening from 8-9 pm special briefing on Wednesday evening August 3 at 8 pm EST]] that his sources close to the grand jury said formerSecretary of State Colin Powell had been subpoenaed and had testified against President Bush, telling the citizen panel that the President had taken the United States to war based upon lies--a capital crime involving treason under the United States Code.

Heneghen also reported a week ago that Gonzalez and Card had been subpoened and that Tony Blair had defied his subpoena after the response time limit had expired.

Sources close to the investigation report that members of the House, Senate, 9.11 Commission and other members of the media are also under investigation as potential targets by a grand jury regarding obstruction of justice and other oversight failures linked to the 9.11 attacks--indicating that citizen panelists working with Fitzgerald may be seeking a wholesale cleansing of what many have said is a crime-wracked White House and Congress.

Also last Monday, the whistleblower reported that Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts was planning to obstruct justice by calling Fitzgerald for Senate hearings to question the prosecutor’s motives for the far-reaching investigation.

This, giving rise to questions as to whether Roberts and other Republican legislators--some now under secret investigation--would join President Bush in seeking to fire Fitzgerald in the same manner that President Nixon had fired Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in order to obstruct justice and cut off further investigations into White House crimes.

Two weeks ago Heneghen said he had talked to sources just ten minutes prior to French and U.S. intelligence agents intercepting British intelligence agents who were attempting to bomb the subway underneath the Dirksen Federal Building where Fitzgerald was presiding over grand jury hearings.

Serious questions can also be raised as to whether intelligence forces linked to President Bush and Tony Blair had participated in a failed attempt to scuttle the Fitzgerald probe by literally blowing it up--at a time when UK reports reveal that military-grade explosives were used to blow upthe London subway on July 7.

Sources say the alleged Chicago subway bombing attempt has been attributed to an underground and closeted enmity involving warring intelligence and military factions within the United States government.

Moreover, reports indicate that the disturbance occurred at the same time that the Chicago Tribune and local web blogs had reported that the subway had been evacuated for 45-50 minutes regarding a "suspicious package" late on Monday afternoon, July 18.

Also confirming the under-the-radar-screen hostilities involving agents loyal to the administration and others who are disturbed about the cover-up of government involvement in the 9.11 attacks was a recent contact made with this writer by a major New York media outlet which called seeking "names of those who could confirm its own reports of warring factions within the government which were threatening the safety of U.S. citizens."


The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie
by Dr. David Ray Griffin
9/11 Visibility Project

In discussing my second 9/11 book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I have often said, only half in jest, that a better title might have been “a 571-page lie.

... I think any sensibly cautious person would require more than a single source on any story of this magnitude. Can you point to other confirming evidence concerning the indictments of Bush, Cheney, et al.

Quiz of the day:

Name the three steel-framed buildings in the history of modern, high-rise skyscrapers to collapse and disintegrate into fine dust due to fire?

A: WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7.

Can you say controlled demolition? The evidence is there for all to see.

The Pod on Flight 175

The South Tower Impact with Alleged Flight 175

What happens when one goes and finds the news medias own footage which they themsleves released after 911, and then, simply slows it down? If you have an eye for detail, the first thing that will occur is your heart will sink. For on the 2nd plane which hit the 2nd World Trade Center, there is a very large extra piece of equipment that has been attached to the planes fuselage, off centered on the right side of the fuselage, just forward of the gear well doors. And it doesn't belong. It is not standard equipment for a Boeing 767 200 ER, or any other passenger aircraft. Boeing was asked to identify this equipment, obvious in almost all the news photos from 911. They refused to identify it, and instead suggested that these questions be answered by the 911 Commission.

Evidence of Controlled Demolition

It was a picture perfect day in September. I was watering some plants on my terrace and enjoying the unseasonably warm weather when I heard the sound of a plane flying low. Within seconds I watched in horror as the unthinkable unfolded, right in my backyard!

The shock was overwhelming. My first thoughts was that it was a terrorist attack. This was confirmed by the news reports of Al Qaeda. But one thing the reporters left out was something I witnessed first hand. A very important omission at that!

Seconds before the South Tower crumbled to its doom, I heard/felt a series of explosions. Same with the North Tower. There was no denying it, I could FEEL the vibrations of them like a small earthquake. Yet when I turned on the news none of the other eyewitnesses commented on this.

Indeed, in the days that followed, like many Americans, I remained glued to the news networks to keep myself informed of any developments and confirm what I had witnessed. But despite the numerous eyewitness accounts, there was still no mention of the explosions.

I decided to examine the evidence for myself…


A lead engineer who worked on the WTC expressed shock that the towers collapsed from plane crashes. Lee Robertson, the tower's structural engineer, addressed the problem of terrorism in the plans for the building, claiming he “designed it for a (Boeing) 707 to hit it."

The Pentagon and the Strange case of the missing Boeing 757
Posted by: Phil_Jayhan on 01/22/2005 12:44 AM (Read: 30392)

Now when we follow along to the Pentagon and the official story that Flight 77, a Boeing 757 struck it, we find little to no evidence that any large commercial airliner impacted the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001. How does a plane which is 124 feet wide, and 44 feet high at it tail section, fit into such a small hole at the Pentagon (16 feet) and leave no signs of wreckage on the lawn? No wings, tail section, seats, even jet fuel. No sign of a Boeing 757 here at all...The most unbelievable aspect of this all, is that 2 of the named hijackers, still on the FBI list as perpetrators, named by the FBI and still on their list as those responsible, خالد المحضار or Khaled al Mihdhar and سالم الحازمي, or Salem al-Hazmi are both Alive and well!

Khaled al Mihdar, is enjoying life as a computer programmer, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. And Salem al Hamzi, is working happily at chemical plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia...

No Plane at Shankesville, Pennsylvania. No Crash, No Shootdown, No Flight 93. No 'Lets Roll'
Posted by: Phil_Jayhan on 03/04/2005 07:17 PM (Read: 17605)

Notice the vegetation and grass which has overgrown the crash imprint already! This is what most might assume are the wingtips and the tail fin imprinted onto the ground. Yet they are completely over-grown with with grass! And grass and vegetation is also seen growing on the sides of the burning pit walls! This must be some kind of new Sunni Muslim Prairie Grass, which is able to grow back in minutes! This shows that a large portion of the imprint of what we were told was Flight 93, was made long before 911! And that the owner of this property is a key witness, and a probable player into what really happened on 911! This crash site was pre-made, and shows no wreckage, nor burning jet fuel. Two staples of every airplane crash before 911! The owner of this property is one of the players in 911!

IMPORTANT NOTE to the non-corrupted FBI and U.S. Law enforcement agents: If you take a close look at the individuals who own this property, where Flight 93 is alleged to have crashed, and interrogate them in Guantanamo for a few weeks, we will get to the bottom of who pulled off 9/11. We guarantee it.

The official explanation of the 911 events is the conspiracy theory! The 911 Omission Report does not even make mention of WTC7. WTC7 is the smoking gun, period. Any right-wing nut-jobs care to comment?
