The symposium will take place from 10:30am to 7pm, with breaks for lunch and dinner.
Welcome & Opening Remarks
Speaker: Lenny Charles & Les Jamieson
Session 1 - What 11 Years of Alternative Research Reveals - A Recap
The Research Model: Deconstructing the Evidence
Speaker: Les Jamieson
Although 3 WTC towers have fallen, almost all of our civil liberties have disappeared, and trillions have dollars have gone up in the smoke of war, the evidence still stands proving that 9/11 could not have occurred as we were told. Therefore, after 11 years we can look back and clearly see that conspiracy theory is fact. The research of 9/11 can be divided into the following categories:
Geo-politics — the centuries-old agenda for empire and 9/11 as the most recent catalyzing event
Procedural Anomalies — foreknowledge, obstruction of justice, put options on American and United Airlines, war games, evacuation of Bin Laden family members, destruction of evidence, withholding of evidence
Physical Evidence — The collapse of the 2 WTC towers, the collapse of WTC 7, the Pentagon attack, Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA
False Flags In Historic Context — Since the days of the Roman Empire, powerful elements have orchestrated self-inflicted attacks to be blamed on a foreign source as a pretext for war. Every war the U.S. has engaged in shows elements of high level orchestration and deception.
The Coverup — from suppression of evidence and testimony to outright lies.
Between the indisputable scientific evidence and compelling circumstantial evidence which has been well documented, the elements necessary for prosecution are abundant.
Finding that Hero Within - Lessons From a 9/11 Whistleblower
Speaker: Richard Gage
The key spokesperson for the 1,700 strong Architects and Engineers from 9/11Truth is Richard Gage, AIA, architect, CEO and founder of the organization. In addition to laying out the evidence for the controlled demolition of all three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11, Gage will review the historical forces and opportunities that are at play with both individuals and society relative to this critical issue now laid the feet of the next generation for action. With the accumulation of 11 years of alternative research combined with the realization of a litany of government lies, there is a clear calling for heroes to rise up among us and speak the very inconvenient truth about what actually happened on 9-11. With the obstruction of truth and justice by our media and elected officials, only a heroic effort from the common people will make the difference. Our very freedoms depend on it. Gage will also share many personal insights from his path on the heroic journey and from leading the effort of the technical and building professionals to blow the whistle on NIST.
Behind the Smoke Curtain: The Pentagon Attacked Itself on 9/11
Speaker: Barbara Honegger
In "Behind the Smoke Curtain: The Pentagon Attacked Itself on 9/11" former White House Policy Analyst and author of the groundbreaking book October Surprise Barbara Honegger reveals what really happened at the Pentagon on Sept. 11 and why that portion of the attack alone turned it into the "New Pearl Harbor" needed to justify the past 11 years of illegal and immoral unilateral wars and occupations and assaults on Constitutional and civil rights worldwide. As the only invited expert witness to testify at both the Toronto Hearings and Vancouver Hearings, the two most important 9/11 Truth events of the past year, Ms. Honegger‘s talk will summarize the most important research findings from the Hearings from that unique perspective. Also a committed activist who had the visions for both the Boston Tea Party for 9/11 Truth and the Third Beam shown in the NYC skyline on the 9th Anniversary of the attacks which has become an icon for the 9/11 Truth Movement worldwide, Ms. Honegger will outline what the Movement can do next to bridge the divide with the Anti-War Movement and trigger a genuine grass roots democratic revival that can take real political power in Washington.
For over a decade, Ms. Honegger was the Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, the premiere science, technology and national security affairs graduate research university of the Department of Defense, from which position she had access to high level civilian and military officials to get the real story of the Pentagon attack. She first published that expose in "The Pentagon Attack Papers", which Prof. David Ray Griffin said would change the entire discussion of what happened on 9/11. Her latest research findings are in "Behind the Smoke Curtain", just published in the historic Toronto 9/11 Hearings Report released for this 11th Anniversary.
SESSION 2 - Understanding 11 Years of Consequences
9/11: Shock & Awe, The Psychology Factor
Speaker: Robert Griffin
With the inclusion of interviews with pscyhologists in the documentary "9/11:Explosive Evidence, Experts Speak Out", we now offer an inquiry into the basic mindset with the usual challenges for assessing truth and fact, the emotional barriers and defenses which do not serve us, the cost of failing to absorb difficult-to-assimilate events, issues of "group think" which promote apathy and inertia, and issues of fear. All of these add up to creating a populace that cannot ensure that democracy and the rule of law prevails, leading to drastic changes as a result of 9/11 which endanger freedom, cost lives, and cost trillions of dollars. We need a new model for what it is to be a human who has the emotional strength and maturity to see events like 9/11 for what they are, evaluate the history of false flag operations, realize how the rule of law has been decimated, and be willing to act as a responsible citizen who will hold government and media accountable. We need people who will create the culture that will lead us from cognitive dissonance to a culture of truth.
1993 WTC Attack: CIA Operatives & The FBI
The CIA & the the Bombing of the 1993 World Trade Center
Where the INSIDE JOB BEGAN
Speaker: Joe Calhoun
To better understand 9/11, we benefit from knowledge of the first World Trade Center attack in 1993. We must understand the CIA's connection to those charged with the bombing, and how all of them, except for the FBI informant planted inside the group, had been on the CIA's payroll in Afghanistan fighting the Soviets before settling in the New York area. Also, we examine the entrapments of FBI infiltrated groups where an informant is planted in a so-called terrorist group, but is actually the person who organizes and is the key person in the commission of the crime. In short this presentation is about how the U.S. government will sometimes create "terrorists" to serve a political agenda." This presentation includes a 40 minute film on the topic.
The Media and Propaganda as Psychological Warfare
Speaker: Wayne Madsen
We live in an era where corporate news is actually "infotainment". The main networks use tactics of diversion, fear, as well as overt disinformation to divert the public's attention from the encroaching Orwellian reality emanating from the attacks of 9/11. This amounts to psychological warfare weapon against the masses.
We have government-controlled suppression of actual investigative reporting on the events of 9/11 as well as crimes of war and treason. In the case of the Arab Spring and similar themed "democracy" movements elsewhere, involvement by US and NATO intelligence operatives have skewed the facts from targeted nations. This effectively carries out the imperial agenda of Project for the New American Century in what has become the "Clash of Civilizations". The past 11 years are filled with milestones that clearly have brought this agenda to fruition. This is why all who work towards justice, regardless of the form or focus, must come to understand the ever-growing relevance of 9/11 affecting us all. Only with this understanding can true social progress be achieved.
Advance Knowledge of 9/11: The Decision to Destroy Peace
Speaker: Susan Lindauer
What if the government decided to invent a great lie to sell a disastrous war and a questionable anti-terrorism policy? What would happen to the Assets who know the truth?
Former CIA Asset, Susan Lindauer, provides an extraordinary first-hand account from behind the intelligence curtain that shatters the government's lies about 9/11 and Iraq, and casts a harsh spotlight on the workings of the Patriot Act as the ideal weapon to bludgeon whistle blowers and dissidents. A terrifying true story of "black budget" betrayals and the Patriot Act, with its arsenal of secret evidence, indefinite detention and threats of forcible drugging, Susan reveals one Asset's desperate struggle to survive the brutal cover ups of 9/11 and Iraq.
Susan delivers a high tension expose of the real facts surrounding the CIA's advance warnings of 9/11 and Iraq's contributions to the 9/11 investigation. She reveals the existence of a comprehensive peace framework, which would have accomplished all U.S. objectives in Baghdad without a single casualty. A true life spy thriller that goes inside the Iraqi Embassy and prison on a Texas military base, this presentation reveals the depths of deception by leaders in Washington and London to promote a questionable image of their terrorism policy, and the shocking brutality to suppress the truth of their failures from the American people and the world community.
Above all, Ms. Lindauer offers a critical examination of the Patriot Act's assault on defendant rights in the Courts, when liberty and freedom to dissent from government policy are the highest stakes. "Susan Lindauer provides us with an overdue exposure of the depths to which governments are prepared to descend to prevent disclosure of their dishonesty and malfeasance, her knowledge having been gained through bitter personal experience." — Robert Black, Q.C., Scottish architect of the Lockerbie Trial at Camp Zeist.
Whistleblowers Under Attack
Speaker: Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, Julia Davis
A democratic government must have transparency, minimize the need of secrecy, and provide protection for all who detect criminal actions and want to uphold their constitutional oath by blowing the whistle. In the case of 9/11, deniers have tried to undermine claims of government complicity by saying there's nobody talking from within the system. This is patently false. Some brave and patriotic people have tried to tell what they know and have had to endure terrible retribution for refusing to stay silent. Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer was a member of the surveillance program, "Able Danger", who reported the existence of actionable data that could have prevented the attacks of 9/11, but was obstructed. His efforts should have resulted in a systemic change of intelligence procedures, holding key people responsible for the breakdown. Instead, Shaffer's efforts were suppressed and his job status was threatened.
Julia Davis, a national security whistleblower was falsely declared a "Domestic Terrorist" and subjected to retaliation of unprecedented proportions by the Department of Homeland Security. In spite of being extensively litigated and mentioned in a book, "Unsafe At Any Altitude", these sensational events were suppressed from being covered by the media — until now. The truth is no longer a secret.
Julia Davis, a former federal officer with the Department of Homeland Security, discovered and reported a breach of national security at the largest and busiest land border crossing in the U.S. on 4th of July, 2004. When the DHS failed to act on her reports, she took her concerns to the FBI/JTTF.
Instead of correcting the shortcomings exposed by Julia Davis, she was falsely accused of being a "Domestic Terrorist" and an "illegal alien" in an attempt by DHS/ICE to deport and denaturalize her. The agency falsely claimed that Julia served in the Russian Army and was a convicted murderer. "Top Priority: The Terror Within" which will be screened at 8pm, explores issues that have sparked nationwide controversy such as the USA PATRIOT Act and illegal tactics improperly used against law-abiding Americans under the guise of "the war on terror". This true story of a whistleblower deserves to garnish national attention.
9/11 and the Militarization of America
Speaker: Frank Morales
9/11 was a US military operation, an act of state terrorism meant to justify Pentagon Incorporated occupation and destruction abroad, requiring the ongoing pacification (militarization) of the 'homeland' by way of repression and increased surveillance, all at the behest of the profit driven corporate elite and the sprawling worker army of the American military industrial complex. A decades-old encroachment of domestic militarization programs, turning local police departments into armies, and passage of legislation designed to stifle dissent and basic constitutional liberties has become clearly visible since 9/11.
What knowledge must Americans have to understand the extent of fascist-like conditions that have been enacted as a result of 9/11? What meaningful grass roots action is required to turn the tide?
Frank Morales is an Episcopal priest and author of "Police State America" (Arm the Spirit, 2002) and numerous articles on the militarization of law enforcement and domestic operations of the Pentagon, most recently "The Coup of 2012" in Global Research Magazine. The former host (2003-2008) of the 9/11 Info and Resource Series at Saint Mark's Church, he was a participant in last year's first ever religious liturgy for 9/11 Truth celebrated at Judson Memorial Church. Frank is a member of "Clergy for 9/11 Truth".
Creating a Culture of Truth
This past year has seen the uprising of the Occupy movement which has definitely captured a space in the public's awareness and established the disparities between the 99% and 1%. The movement has created a platform for protests against Wall St. greed and corruption, destruction of the environment, the burden of student debt, and the inability of the 2-party system to address the needs of the public. However, there can be no real revolution or evolution without an effective strategy to displace the war machine and its insatiable profit motive. This will require creating widespread understanding of the reality behind 9/11 in a way that leads to an awakening of a critical mass who will demand a single standard of law and hold government accountable. After 11 years of cognitive dissonance and outright denial, the human and financial cost is simply intolerable. We either shape our future or it will be shaped for us. We now call on all people who desire true human progress to get informed, inform others, and get active.
“We either shape our future based on truth for the betterment of humanity, or the future will be shaped in the interest of the few who seek to conceal the truth to the detriment of humanity.”
