If a real investigation of 911 should conclude that the weapon of choice was a Global Hawk, then the only conclusions consistent with that are 1) 911 was an inside job; 2) the 'President' actively tried to cover up the crime of mass murder to protect members of his administration and to hide his own complicity; 3) that tax monies --paid by US citizens to 'their' government were misappropriated and applied to the mass murder of fellow citizens. Traditionally, treason is the name given serious acts of disloyalty to one's sovereign or one's nation. It was not until 1990, that the Criminal Justice Act (1990) removed the death penalty for acts of treason. But 911, is not only an act of high treason --the supreme act against one's country. 911 is a series of 'mass murders'. Certainly, if Bush were an ordinary human being subject to the laws that every other person is subject to, this crime would have landed him on death row in Texas awaiting a needle and an IV cocktail.
No Windows on Flight 175
It is hard, offhand, to cite a single crime in world history that is the equal of 911 in terms of sheer evil and horror. The name Bush will surely live in infamy. If Bush cannot be held accountable to the rule of law --which he claims to be above -- then it is the patriotic duty of good, truth-loving Americans to keep alive his memory. The name 'Bush' should, by rights, live forever in infamy beside the names of history's great mass murderers --Nero, Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot!
9/11; Response to a Financial Times Report regarding 9/11: "fails to deal with the evidence" by Elizabeth Woodworth Dear Mr. Barber: I am a professional medical librarian who delivered "best evidence" literature to the public health officers of the British Columbia government for 25 years. Your article, "The Truth is Out There", is an "ad hominem" approach to a critically serious matter, and it unfortunately fails to deal with the evidence involved. You will no doubt agree that 9/11 has changed the world. It is a seminal event which has grossly undermined trust and erected enormous barriers between the West and the Middle East. And it has led to widespread mayhem and death in that region. Obviously, questions concerning our understanding of the event are of the utmost importance. The US government has steadfastly refused to release the evidence which it claims to have. Evidence, which, if in existence, would settle once and for all the questions which are being raised, nearly 7 years later, on the front page of the Financial Times of London. There were 85 cameras rolling outside the Pentagon, whose film could be offered to save the Times the trouble of running these articles. There are small, indestructible time replacement parts in all aircraft which allow for positive identification, and these could be offered to silence critics about Flight 77. For several years NIST has been promising its imminent report on the strange collapse of Building 7. This could be completed and released. You say the 9/11 truth movement has taken over from the peace movement. Why don't you ask why the government doesn't do the obvious thing and produce the evidence to silence this vast new movement? A full, credible, transparent account would be the responsible thing for the US government to do. Without such an account, or even the evidence which would allow for one, many concerned people have stepped into the breach. It is unlikely, as you point out, that everyone will agree. But because the Bush administration has elected to withhold its purported fact-settling evidence, its citizens are dealing with a mystery. The best the public can do is conduct its own investigation by working with available media reports, witnesses, and forensic samples. There is a natural temptation to ponder what actually happened, and some people succumb to developing theories, it is true. But the scientific people in the 9/11 research community simply advance the "best evidence", then demonstrate that it is incompatible with what we have been told, and call for a new investigation. Having long provided Web-based literature to health professionals, I believe the links below to be truthworthy. If you, Mr. Barber, are interested in dealing with the facts themselves, rather than where Dr. Griffin lives, or what his dogs do when you come to the door, you might wish to pass this sample evidence-based information along to your readers (that is, if the FT has no agenda in running your long "ad hominem" piece as a front page feature article): 1.

For you, who seems interested in the event, the question is: if all this evidence does indeed point to US government complicity, would you want to know about it? And the answer to that is your worth as a journalist. Elizabeth Woodworth Professional Librarian/Writer Victoria, BC Canada
