I really do not believe in most of the many batshit crazy 'conspiracy theories', but the following two videos are compelling evidence [not just speculation, but substancial EVIDENCE] that the 'facts and truth' about 9/11 was perhaps little more than a fabrication.
hy.poth.e.sis - Steven Jones documentary
" 'hy.poth.e.sis' is a documentary film that follows physics professor Steven E. Jones during a pivotal point in his life. In 2005, Steven went public with a controversial theory regarding the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11. His assertion that the collapse was likely the result of pre-positioned explosives rather than the hijacked planes resulted in a backlash from the community and even threatened his standing as a professor at BYU. Despite hate mail, threats, and even bribery to end his research, Steven refused to give in to overwhelming pressure and continued his pursuit of the truth."
Loose Change documentary
"9/11 conspiracy theories are conspiracy theories that disagree with the widely accepted account that the September 11 attacks were perpetrated solely by al-Qaeda, without any detailed advanced knowledge on the part of any government agency. Proponents of these conspiracy theories claim there are inconsistencies in the official conclusions, or evidence which was overlooked. In a 2008 global poll of 16,063 people in 17 countries, majorities in only nine countries believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks. 46% of those surveyed believed al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks, 15% believed the U.S. government was responsible, 7% believed Israel was and another 7% believed some other perpetrator, other than al Qaeda, was responsible. The poll found that respondents in the Middle East were especially likely to name a perpetrator other than al-Qaeda.
The most prominent conspiracy theory is that the collapse of the Twin Towers and 7 World Trade Center were the result of a controlled demolition rather than structural failure due to fire. Another prominent belief is that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by elements from inside the U.S. government or that a commercial airliner was allowed to do so via an effective standdown of the American military. Possible motives claimed by conspiracy theorists for such actions include justifying the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as geostrategic interests in the Mideast, such as pipeline plans launched in the early 1990s by Unocal and other oil companies. Other conspiracy theories revolve around authorities having advance knowledge of the attacks and deliberately ignoring or helping to assist the attackers. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and media outlets such as Popular Mechanics have investigated and rejected the claims made by 9/11 conspiracy theories. The civil engineering community accepts that the impacts of jet aircraft at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, not controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers."
Hackers apparently broke into at least two of North Korea's government-run online sites Thursday, as tensions rose on the Korean Peninsula.
The North's Uriminzokkiri Twitter and Flickr accounts stopped sending out content typical of that posted by the regime in Pyongyang, such as photos of North's leader Kim Jong-un meeting with military officials.
Instead, a picture posted Thursday on the North's Flickr site shows Kim's face with a pig-like snout .... Underneath, the text reads: "Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons/Wasting money while his people starve to death."
The Virtual Revolution is a British television documentary series presented by Dr. Aleks Krotoski, which began airing on BBC Two on 30 January 2010. A co-production between the BBC and the Open University, the series looks at the impact the World Wide Web has had since its inception 20 years ago. The series took a different approach to BBC documentary making by encouraging an open and collaborative production.
Par1 1 "The Great Levelling?"
"The first programme examines the idea of the World Wide Web as a "great leveller", and how this has shaped the development of the web.
Looking at the web as an empowering tool and the access provided to knowledge, Krotoski visits Einar Kvaran, contributor to the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia. To understand how the web gave rise to Wikipedia, she looks at early online community The WELL, which flourished from the counter-culture and libertarianism of the 1960s, speaking to founder Stewart Brand and John Perry Barlow, who spoke up for online freedom.
Al Gore speaks about blogs and expressing ideas, and Krotoski visits Ory Okolloh, founder of Ushahidi, which gave people a voice following the unrest after the 2007 Kenyan elections.
She then talks with Sir Tim Berners-Lee about inventing the World Wide Web while he was at CERN in the 1980s. Kenyan farmer Kudjo Agbevi discusses empowerment, and Berners-Lee, Barlow and Andrew Keen speak about the lack of a controlling authority and hierarchy. ,,,,,"
Go to the limits of human experience...and beyond. From the fringes of the galaxy to our own backyards, the UFO FILES searches for evidence of life beyond our world. Tracing the long, convoluted history of UFO encounters and research, this unique series opens new windows into the controversial field.
For years, its remote location and iron-clad security measures kept it a secret. But the existence of Area 51 is now well known, even though it still does no show up on any government documents or maps. And while the government still does not officially acknowledge its presence, the mysterious base is a lightning rod for controversy and speculation.
The History Channel explores the many compelling stories and theories that swirl around Area 51, from the fears of conspiracy theorists that it is ground zero for a shadow government they call the "New World Order" to the long-rumored presence of UFO spaceships and alien remains. We'll hear from New York Times author Phil Patton, whose book on the subject is widely considered to be the definitive work about the base and its "black projects." And we'll visit the tiny desert town of Rachel, on the edges of the base, and investigate the mysterious deaths of a number of Area 51 workers.
From its origins in the heart of the Cold War to the enticing clues that incredible events are still unfolding inside this desert outpost, this is a comprehensive chronicle of one of the most compelling and mysterious military installations in the world.
....."But as the twentieth century came to a close, a brave new world of election rigging emerged, on a scale that might have prompted Huey Long’s stunned admiration. Tracing the sea changes in our electoral process, we see that two major events have paved the way for this lethal form of election manipulation: the mass adoption of computerized voting technology, and the outsourcing of our elections to a handful of corporations that operate in the shadows, with little oversight or accountability. ....."
It has been done before, and indications are that it may well be done again in 2012.
"On June 13th , a fifty-four-year-old former government employee named Thomas Drake is scheduled to appear in a courtroom in Baltimore, where he will face some of the gravest charges that can be brought against an American citizen. A former senior executive at the National Security Agency, the government’s electronic-espionage service, he is accused, in essence, of being an enemy of the state. . . . . . .
Steven Aftergood, the director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists, says of the Drake case, “The government wants this to be about unlawfully retained information. The defense, meanwhile, is painting a picture of a public-interested whistle-blower who struggled to bring attention to what he saw as multibillion-dollar mismanagement.” Because Drake is not a spy, Aftergood says, the case will “test whether intelligence officers can be convicted of violating the Espionage Act even if their intent is pure.” He believes that the trial may also test whether the nation’s expanding secret intelligence bureaucracy is beyond meaningful accountability. “It’s a much larger debate than whether a piece of paper was at a certain place at a certain time,” he says."
Back in the early days of the 'Cold War' I worked for one of the many satellite organizetions which furnished the NSA with much of its classified communications information. It was a fascinating job, but even back then I was aware of the possible excesses of this national security organization.

And it goes even deeper — when ANYONE who posts on the internet is a possible 'Enemy of the State'.
Below is a comment from Muslim Riots and 14th Century Christians on Unreasonable Faith and which, to me, makes more sense than ALL of noise put out by the countless journalists and polticians that have commented on the recent Muslim riots.
The Vicar says: September 14, 2012 at 3:52 pm
"We’ve explicitly invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, and we’ve been fighting (mostly bombing, and usually with unmanned drones) in Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia. (We bomb children and weddings and farmers. We even send the drones back a few minutes later to bomb the people who come to help cope with the explosions of the initial bombs.) We stand with Israel even when they invade their neighbors and despite their treatment of the Palestinians. Our politicians are saber-rattling against Iran, and we’re already flying drones into their airspace and hacking their computers. Everywhere we go, we loot and destroy and prop up despicable dictators. We don’t invade North Korea, we don’t get into conflicts with China, when there are riots in the west we don’t send in troops, but we take every opportunity to send troops or drones or both to Islamic countries. The Muslims look at all that, and they conclude that we’re targeting Islam.
For the most part they’re wrong — although I have no doubt that there’s a fairly large segment of the U.S. which really does want to kill Muslims specifically. But our case that we aren’t deliberately targeting Muslims would be a lot stronger if we actually came out and told the truth: “we will do anything to make sure that a few large companies control natural resources, we’re racist against anyone who isn’t caucasian, and we want to keep poor and powerless people that way so they aren’t a challenge. Your countries have lots of resources and are largely filled with poor, brown-skinned people. Your religion is just a coincidence.”
Of course, we could also stop bombing, really pull our troops out of other countries (where they shouldn’t be in the first place), and in general stop trying to control the entire world. But I’m trying to stay realistic."
As a prelude to the following informative videos, I would like to explain that, during my military service in the 1950's I worked at a top secret base on the Japanese island of Hokkaido. We were involved in gathering 'cold-war' information about the Soviet Union, which was relayed to NSA headquarters in Washington DC on a daily basis. I was part of an organization, of thousands of individuals world-wide, whose existence was unknown by even the congress of the U.S. government. There are many in the U.S. government who are masters of deception and concealing information from the public as revealed in the following videos.
1 Paul Hellyer, former canadian Defense Minister & Deputy Prime Minister, spoke in Kitchener at the "Towards a Peaceful Economy" about ET technologies to solve energy and pollution crisis, as well as economic and banking reform.
2 This explosive testimony by actual government insiders proves that UFOs are real, that some are of extraterrestrial origin and that super-secret programs have energy and propulsion technologies that will enable humanity to begin a new civilization- A civilization without pollution, without poverty - A civilization capable of traveling among the stars.
Noted researcher Robert Hastings, author of UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, moderates a distinguished panel of former U.S. Air Force officers involved in UFO incidents at nuclear missile sites near Malmstrom, F.E. Warren, and Walker AFBs, as well as the nuclear weapons depot at RAF Bentwaters. This explosive testimony by actual government insiders proves that UFOs are real, that some are of extraterrestrial origin. This briefing was at the National Press Club in Washington DC in 2010.
