The draft agenda was amended and approved.

Susan Wolfe of Revolution Travel Management  is preparing lodging and travel arrangements for those coming to New York from the 911 Truth movement for the 911 tenth anniversary events. Susan reported that that Hostel International NYC has generously made itself available for those wishing hostel lodging for these events  (600+ beds), plus, two overflow hostels are also cooperating.  On September 8 there will be coordinated events in Shanksville and at the Pentagon.  AE911Truth has formed a committee to plan some events at these locations, plus NY.  There are, in addition, two separate 9/11 Truth groups planning events in NYC.  We Are Change is preparing a campground 45 minutes from NYC for those wishing to camp during the events.  Arrangements are being made to lease 12/15 passenger vans from various locations and to enlist volunteer drivers for them.

The mission statement of the 9/11 Truth Teleconference was revised as follows:

The mission of the 9/11 Truth Teleconference is to enable activists from local 9/11 Truth and Peace & Justice groups to discuss and respond to the official account of September 11, 2001 and the policies which ensued therefrom. In the present age of corrupt media, government, and justice system, local activists from around the world, by communicating amongst themselves, seek to promote and coordinate appropriate actions in response to the ongoing cover-up of the aforementioned events of September 11, 2001. An hour-long teleconference will take place on the last Wednesday of each month to discuss tactics and strategies to support the objective of widespread awareness of the truth about 911. We acknowledge the need for a credible investigation.

[Sheila Casey facilitated this segment of the teleconference.]

The following  resolution condemning censorship at 911 Blogger was adopted: [Vote 9 yes; 3 no]

911blogger.com has harmed the 9/11 truth movement by banning users who support Citizen Investigation Team (CIT), and allowing unsubstantiated personal attacks on CIT and their supporters, while aggressively promoting the unlikely account that the physical damage at the Pentagon was caused by the crash of a large aircraft.

We condemn this behavior and urge the 911blogger moderators to reinstate users who were banned because of their support for CIT.  We further urge the moderators to strive for fairness, transparency and objectivity.  This will foster an environment in which truth can be discovered and propagated.

The teleconference was formally adjourned shortly after 7 pm EST.


About flybynews

Flyby News (FN) came out of the campaign to stop or expose the high risk NASA Cassini (plutonium) Earth flyby. FN's first campaign at the turn of the millennium was to prevent the expansion of the arms race and US domination of the planet with space-based weapons. Yet the theft of democracy in the US 2000 election, the Supreme Court appointment of George W. Bush as US President, and the events of September 11, 2001, led to the termination of the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty, along with many other actions of crimes against humanity and civil freedom. The exploitation and cover-up of September 11, 2001 led to illegal, deceptive wars, which has accelerated climate change, and the downfall of financial and social justice. Flyby News is educational and nonviolent in focus, and has supported critical campaigns for a healthy environment, human rights, justice, peace, and nonviolence, since the launching of NASA's Cassini space probe in 1997.

    If the Citizen Investigation Team wants to be taken seriously, I have a few suggestions.

    1. Prohibit your supporters from saying stupid things like “There is no evidence of a 757”

    2. Prohibit your supporters from saying stupid things like “The hole is too small for a 757”

    3. Stop making stupid claims like Terry Morin Supports the NoC Flight Path, and obviously dishonestly-framed ones like None of the Witnesses Who Could See the Citgo Placed the Aircraft on the SoC Flight Path.

    4. Stop demonizing cooperating witnesses like Lloyde England and Father McGraw. It makes truthers look like unethical people and repels potential whistleblowers.

    5. Explain how the cloverleaf light poles got knocked down. The notion that they were planted early in the dark is ludicrous. They would have been right there in the short grass in the cloverleaf through two rush hours.

    6. Interview people who cleaned up the Pentagon about plane wreckage and damage.

    7. Track down the flyover witnesses Eric Dihle spoke of.

    8. Acknowledge that Roosevelt Roberts’s account is so screwed up it’s useless

    9. Track down Deb Anlauf. She saw the whole thing.

    10. Put some time into canvassing potential east-of-Pentagon flyover witnesses: bus drivers, freeway commuters, airport limo drivers, DOT employees, dog walkers in the park, bikers in the park, marina employees, marina tenants, planespotters, airport employees, aircraft pilots.

    CIT’s failure to persue certain obvious lines of research is damning. It’s like they went there looking for a certain story, a dozen witnesses who fell into their lap told them what they wanted to hear, and they believed it and terminated their investigation.

  2. Craig McKee says:

    (This is the same response I gave to this comment from Mr. Good on my own site, http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=578&action=edit):

    I have no problem with the suggestion that more research could be done and that more witnesses could be found and interviewed. And you certainly have the right to cite witnesses that you feel contradict CIT’s research. But there are serious problems with some of your other suggestions.

    The first and most obvious is your suggestion that CIT prohibit its supporters from expressing certain opinions. Are you seriously suggesting that CIT has control over those who support their research?
    When people use terms like “stupid” in connection with the Pentagon event, they seem to usually be doing so to attack CIT. I don’t think stupid is a very strong word to use in debating an issue.

    Whether or not there is any evidence of a 757 is really not the point. I contend, as do many others who support CIT’s work, that the airplane parts found at the site were not from Flight 77 or any other 757 that crashed into the building that day.
    As for the hole, it clear wasn’t large enough for a 757 to disappear into the building. And no, I don’t buy the Mike Walter fantasy of folding wings.

    The last point I’ll address is the “demonizing of co-operating witnesses” reference, because this is clearly one of your favourite arguments. It’s also very popular with the anti-CIT crowd at 911Blogger, which is losing credibility with an ever-growing number of 9/11 Truthers.

    Lloyde England is not a demon and he’s not an evil mastermind behind a conspiracy, but he has given an account of what happened to him on that morning that defies common sense. I’m sorry if you feel this is unfair to him, or that it demonizes him, but I simply don’t believe his account. Aren’t you disbelieving all the witnesses who support the north-of-Citgo flight path? Their accounts clearly don’t jive with the light poles being hit. Why is this different?

    You, and others who agree with you, seem to want to support the official story of the Pentagon on 9/11, and I still don’t understand why.
