No Justice: Statement of September 11th Advocates Regarding Guantanamo Bay Military Tribunals

May 5, 2012

source: Jon Gold    May 4, 2012

It would seem that the U.S. Government found itself in a conundrum when they allowed prisoners, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), to be tortured in secret prisons around the world.  Once tortured, any confession or testimony from KSM, or others, could not be deemed reliable.  Furthermore, the focus of the eventual proceedings would become a trial about the practice of torture, instead of being a trial about alleged terrorist crimes.  That would have been untenable for the U.S. Government, which wants to avoid any and all accountability for their own crimes of torture.

In order to bypass potential discussion of torture, the latest Chief Prosecutor for the Military Commissions, Brig. General Mark Martins, found a willing witness in Majid Khan, a fellow GITMO inmate to KSM.  Khan himself was not involved in the 9/11 plot.  He supposedly got his information from time spent behind bars at GITMO with KSM.  Kahn will be allowed to give this hearsay evidence against KSM in return for a reduced sentence.  However, Khan’s sentencing won’t take place for four years.  It seems the Prosecution is pinning their hopes and dreams on Khan’s upcoming performance.  None of this lends credibility to an already suspect system.

Additionally, with campaigning for the upcoming Presidential elections heating up, the timing of this latest attempt at justice for 9/11 is exploitive at best.

Thomas Kean Runs From 9/11 Questions to ‘Respect the Families’

September 7, 2011

source: We Are Change     Sep 7, 2011

Luke Rudkowski finds the Chairman of the 9/11 Commission Report Thomas Kean and won’t leave him alone until the unanswered questions about 9/11 are answered. Of course Kean run’s away, dodges questions and calls over security during the questioning when asked about Philip Zelikow’s 9/11 Commission outline, that was written before the investigation started. If this video shows
anything, it shows how there was a massive cover up of the events of 9/11 by the Bush Administration.

9/11 Victims’ Families Still Waiting for Justice Two Years After Obama’s Promise

March 1, 2011

The title is misleading because 9/11 victims family members have really been waiting and acting for justice for almost 10 years now.

The families featured in this article by FOX news are not the same 9/11 families that are involved in the Building What campaign nor are these the 9/11 families that signed the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth petition – but they are 9/11 victims family members waiting for justice none-the-less.

Debra Burlingame is the sister of Cap. Charles Burlingame who was piloting the plane that was crashed into the Pentagon. Read more about him here.

Two years ago this month, President Obama met with the families of Sept. 11 victims and other victims of terrorism at a special meeting in Washington, D.C., and promised “swift and certain justice” for the perpetrators. But the high expectations of that meeting have given way to frustration for many who met with Obama.

“One of the first things he told us was that we were the conscience of the country and he wanted to give us swift and certain justice,” Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles, was the pilot on Flight 77 on 9/11, told Fox News. She was one of about 30 people at the meeting.

That same phrase “swift and certain justice” was used by the White House in its own press release after the meeting.

But with no timetable for a trial for those charged with being behind the attacks, Hamilton Peterson, who lost his father and stepmother on 9/11, says the families feel betrayed.

Unfortunately, I would say, at a minimum, we were misled, ” Peterson said.

9/11 Family Members Demand Answers from the 9/11 Commission: The Censored Testimony of FBI’s Behrooz Sarshar

February 1, 2011

 

by Sibel Edmonds    source: Boiling Frogs Post    Feb 1, 2011

The Witnessed & Documented “Kamikaze Pilots” Case

In a public statement issued today (see below), members of the 9/11 Family Steering Committee demanded a prompt response from the former Chairman and Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission regarding Former FBI Language Specialist Behrooz Sarshar’s censored testimony to the Commission. The press release was prompted by recently released documents related to the interviews conducted by the 9/11 Commission published at Cryptome.org , in particular the “Memorandum for the Record ” containing the Commission’s interview with Mr. Sarshar. The memorandum, after establishing Mr. Sarshar’s credibility and vaguely referring to his documented and witnessed testimony regarding specific tip(s) provided to the FBI in April and June 2001 regarding planned imminent “Kamikaze Pilots” attacks targeting major cities in the United States, leaves out the entire testimony. This testimony was also entirely left out of the Commission’s final report released in July 2004.

Behrooz Sarshar worked as a GS 12 language specialist with Top Secret Clearance at the FBI Washington Field Office. After leaving the FBI in 2002, he provided his testimony on “Kamikaze Pilots” to several Congressional offices and investigators, including staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Committee’s leading Democrat at the time, Senator Patrick Leahy, and the Justice Department’s Inspector General Office. The congressional sources familiar with Mr. Sarshar’s case and briefing found  him and his report credible:

A former Grassley investigator says he found Sarshar credible, too. “We thought he was a pretty credible guy,” said former Senate Judiciary Committee investigator Kris Kolesnik.

In April and June of 2001 a long-term FBI informant told two FBI agents from the Washington field office that his sources in Afghanistan had provided him with information regarding a terrorist plot to attack the US in a suicide mission involving airplanes. Mr. Sarshar acted as an interpreter at both meetings after which the case agents filed a report (on 302 Forms) with their squad supervisor, Thomas Frields. Here is what Mr. Frields told the reporter when questioned about the case:

Obama, Mullen, Gates Conduct War-Justification-Ceremony at Pentagon for 9/11 Victims Family Members & Country on 11th of the Month

December 13, 2010

Nor Cal Truth     Dec 13, 2010

To my knowledge, this is the first time a 9/11 memorial by the highest officials has happened on an 11th other than September.

As covered by the Navy Times:

President Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen on Saturday (the 11th) remembered the victims of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon in a ceremony at the Pentagon Memorial.

I can optimistically think that this is in direct response to:

  1. The Truth Action campaign for 9/11 truth awareness every 11th of each month
  2. Jesse Ventura’s upcoming episode of “Conspiracy Theory” focusing on the Pentagon
  3. Growing anger about the wars
  4. Growing distrust of the official 9/11 story     
  5. 9/11 Whistleblower suing the Pentagon 
  6. All of the above

The truth of the Pentagon may not be as obvious as the WTC demolition job in NYC; but none-the-less there are many unanswered questions regarding what did or did not hit the Pentagon, how it hit the Pentagon and why it was allowed to. That doesn’t even scratch the surface of the mysterious Pentagon incident on 9/11.

The rhetoric from Obama, Admiral Mullen and Secretary Gates continues below from the same Navy Times article:

“We honor them with our presence and certainly with this memorial,” Mullen said at a Pentagon ceremony for those who died in the building and on the plane that hit it.
