Le 11 septembre 2001, le monde entier regardait, incrédule et en état de choc, des avions s'abattre sur les tours du World Trade Center de New York et sur le Pentagone, à Washington. Les Américains ont alors subitement compris qu'ils étaient attaqués, mais par qui? Que s'est-il réellement passé? Nos collègues de l'émission The fifth estate http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/2009-2010/the_unofficial_story/ nous présentent des gens qui croient que le cerveau derrière ces attentats n'était pas Oussama ben Laden, mais plutôt le gouvernement américain.

Un membre de l’administration Obama réclame « l’infiltration cognitive » des « groupes de conspiration sur le 11 septembre »
par Daniel Tencer
Dans un article académique de 2008, la personne nommée par le président Barack Obama à la tête de l’Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (Bureau de l’Information et des Affaires réglementaires) a recommandé l’« infiltration cognitive » des groupes qui promeuvent les « théories de conspiration » comme celles entourant le 11 septembre.
Cass Sunstein, professeur de droit à Harvard, est le co-auteur de cet article intitulé « Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures » (Les théories de conspiration : les causes et les remèdes), dans lequel il soutient que le gouvernement devrait infiltrer furtivement les groupes présentant des théories alternatives sur des événements historiques par le biais des « forums de discussion, des réseaux sociaux en ligne ou même des groupes en espaces réels et tenter de miner » ces groupes.
À titre de directeur de l’Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, M. Sunstein est responsable de la « supervision des politiques liées à la vie privée, de la qualité de l’information et des programmes statistiques », selon le site Web de la Maison-Blanche.
L’article de M. Sunstein, publié dans le Journal of Political Philosphy en 2008 et découvert récemment par le blogueur Marc Estrin, stipule : « [N]otre principale affirmation est que les théories de conspiration découlent non pas de l’irrationalité ou de la maladie mentale, mais d’une “épistémologie invalide”, venant sous la forme d’un nombre extrêmement limité de sources informationnelles (pertinentes) ».
Par « épistémologie invalide », M. Sunstein veut dire que les personnes croyant aux théories de conspiration ont un nombre limité de sources d’information auxquelles elles font confiance. Par conséquent, M. Sunstein avance dans l’article que le simple fait de réfuter les théories de conspiration en public ne fonctionnerait pas : il faudrait infiltrer les sources mêmes en lesquelles les théoriciens de conspiration croient.
M. Sunstein, dont l’article se concentre largement sur les théories de conspiration du 11 septembre, suggère que le gouvernement « enrôle des représentants non gouvernementaux afin de réfuter ces théories. Cela pourrait garantir que ce sont des experts indépendants crédibles qui présentent la contestation plutôt que des administrateurs gouvernementaux. Il existe toutefois un compromis entre la crédibilité et le contrôle. Le prix de la crédibilité est que l’on ne peut pas voir que le gouvernement contrôle les experts indépendants.

M. Sunstein a par ailleurs soutenu que « le gouvernement pourrait employer des tactiques (légales) pour briser les groupes cognitifs serrés qui mettent de l’avant des théories extrêmes ». Il a suggéré que les « agents du gouvernement (et leurs alliés) se joignent à des forums de discussion, à des réseaux sociaux en ligne ou même à des groupes en espaces réels et tentent de miner des théories de conspiration en propagation en soulevant des doutes à propos de leurs fondements factuels, de leur logique causale ou de leur incidence pour l’action politique ».
M. Estrin souligne que, M. Sunstein préconise l’infiltration de groupes « extrémistes » afin de saper la confiance de ces groupes au point où « les nouvelles recrues seront suspectes et les participants des réseaux virtuels de ces groupes douteront de la bonne foi l’un de l’autre ».
M. Sunstein « désire détenir des blogues et des hébergeurs Web responsables des remarques des commentateurs sur les sites Web, tout en changeant les lois sur la diffamation afin qu’il soit plus facile d’intenter un procès pour propagation de “rumeurs”, écrit Ed Lasky sur American Thinker.

The order, which is entitled Establishment of the Council of Governors (PDF), creates a body of ten state governors directly appointed by Obama who will work with the federal government to help advance the “synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States”.
The governors will liaise with officials from Northcom, Homeland Security, the National Guard as well as DoD officials from the Pentagon “in order to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State governments,” according to the executive order.
“This is a concrete step toward eliminating the independent authority and dissolving the sovereignty of the several States. It lays the groundwork for the end of the
Others warn that Obama could be preparing to cancel elections under the justification of a national emergency, a fear that was often expressed when Bush was in office but one that never materialized.
However, the executive order clearly represents another assault on Posse Comitatus, the 1878 law that bars the military from exercising domestic police powers, which was temporarily annulled by the 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization Act before parts of it were later repealed.
There is no more complete or compelling evidence of a police state than the government announcing that it will murder its own citizens if it views them as a "threat."
Ironic, isn’t it, that "the war on terror" to make us safe ends in a police state with the government declaring the right to murder American citizens who it regards as a threat.

In the wake of the weird Christmas Day "underwear bomber" incident on Northwest Flight 253, . While some in the media noted this rather commonplace conflict of interest, ignored by all was a far more significant abuse of the American public's trust.
Claims on behalf of authorities that naked body scanner images are immediately destroyed after passengers pass through new x-ray backscatter devices have been proven fraudulent after it was revealed that naked images of Indian film star Shahrukh Khan were printed out and circulated by airport staff at Heathrow in
“I was a little scared. Something happens [inside the scans], and I came out. Then I saw these girls – they had these printouts. I looked at them. I thought they were some forms you had to fill. I said ‘give them to me’ – and you could see everything inside. So I autographed them for them,” stated Khan.
The story was carried by Yahoo News under the headline “Shah Rukh signs off sexy body-scan printouts at Heathrow”.
Khan’s reference to “girls” with printouts of his naked body scan can only refer to female airport security staff responsible for processing the images produced by the scanners, “professionals” who are supposed to instantly delete the images, according to Lord Adonis.
The revelation that airport security staff are completely abusing any notion of the professionalism promised by authorities by printing out and circulating images of naked body scans should set alarm bells ringing, especially in light of the fact that such images of minors break child pornography laws.
Heathrow Airport’s denial that Indian film star Shahrukh Khan’s naked body scanner images were printed and circulated by airport staff because the devices have no capability to print or distribute images contradicts leaked government documents that prove the x-ray backscatter machines do have the option to store and send images, as well as actual images of the print outs that are freely available on the Internet.
Terror suspect allowed to keep visa by intelligence officials
January 27, 2010,
The State Department didn't revoke the visa of foiled terrorism suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab because federal counterterrorism officials had begged off revocation, a top State Department official revealed. Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab's visa wasn't taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist. "Revocation action would have disclosed what they were doing," Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Since the failed attack, criticism has swirled around leaders of the
Note: So federal counterterrorism officials stopped the bomber's visa from being revoked. Hmmmm... Clearly there is more going on in this case than "failure to connect the dots." Why aren't other major media reporting this important story?

For more on this key case, click here.
"Patrick F.

Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, "rather than simply knocking out one solider in that effort."'
Authorities have quietly reversed the official story behind the Christmas Day underwear bomber attack and acknowledged that an accomplice was involved, despite weeks of denial and derision of eyewitness Kurt Haskell’s description of a sharp-dressed man who helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab board Flight
Federal agents also tell ABCNews.com they are attempting to identify a man who passengers said helped Abdulmutallab change planes for

• In a span of just nine months, CBP officials searched over 1,500 electronic devices belonging to travelers. Under the current policy, they were not required to justify a single one of these searches.
• Travelers' laptops are not the only devices at risk of being examined, detained, or seized by the government. In fact, cell phones were the most commonly searched and seized devices between October 2008 and June 2009.
• Other types of devices that were searched and detained during this time period include digital cameras, thumb drives, hard drives, and even DVDs.
Computer scientists in Britain have uncovered weaknesses in electronic passports issued by the US, UK, and some 50 other countries that allow attackers to trace the movements of individuals as they enter or exit buildings.
Obama quietly continues to defend Bush's terror policies
Although the FBI has acknowledged it improperly obtained thousands of Americans' phone records for years, the Obama administration continues to assert that the bureau can obtain them without any formal legal process or court oversight. In further support of [this assertion] the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel backed the FBI in a written opinion issued this month. The opinion by the OLC — the section that wrote the memos that justified enhanced interrogation techniques during the last administration — appears to be yet another sign that the Obama administration can be just as assertive as Bush's in claiming sweeping and controversial anti-terrorism powers. "The FBI says that this kind of activity is in the past," said Michael German, a former FBI agent who's now the American Civil Liberties Union's policy counsel. "But if they're saying that they have a continuing legal authority that means it's not in the past." In another similarity to Bush era-legal decisions to keep legal theories under wraps, Obama's Justice Department refused to release to McClatchy the OLC opinion, despite the administration's vow to be more open than its predecessors.

Brown says. "And let's say in the future they can test for a gene for schizophrenia or manic-depression and your baby tests positive -- that would be on there, too."
Brown says if the hospital had first asked her permission to test Isabel, now 10 months old, she might have chosen to pay for it out of pocket so the results wouldn't be known to the insurance company.
"In the military, for instance, they take and store DNA samples, but they tell you they're doing it, and you can choose not to join if you don't like it," he says.

(NaturalNews) Genetically Modified crops (or GM) are genetically modified organisms (GMO) that have been altered to meet a specific profile. They have also been the subject of controversy almost since their introduction two decades ago. A new study pinpoints three variations of GM corn (maize) as being linked to organ damage in mammals.
The three varieties in question are Mon 810, Mon 863, and NK 603. The "Mon" is for, you guessed it, Monsanto and the NK is also a Monsanto product, being engineered for herbicide tolerance. The study was conducted by the Committee of Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) and the Universities of Caen and

Each of the three strains produced differing amounts of adverse impact, but the impact on vital organs was universal for all three GM crops.
The study was completed in December 2009 and appears in the International Journal of Biological Sciences1 (IJBS). It conforms with and substantiates an earlier study done by CRIIGEN in 2007 on Mon 863.2 The results of that study were rejected by Monsanto.3

Swine flu taskforce's links to vaccine giant: More than half the experts fighting the 'pandemic' have ties to drug firms

Note: For lots more on the Swine Flu "false pandemic," click here.
An inquiry heard yesterday that the WHO allegedly softened its criteria for declaring a H1N1 flu pandemic last spring - just weeks before announcing there was a worldwide outbreak.
Critics said the decision was driven by pharmaceutical companies desperate to recoup the billions of pounds they had invested in researching and developing pandemic vaccines after the bird flu scares in 2006 and 2007.
Unflipping believable, but perfectly predictable.
A scientist with the World Health Organisation has testified, during ongoing hearings in Strasbourg, France, that the swine flu pandemic was part of an overblown “angst campaign”, devised in conjunction with major drug companies to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers.
While some sunlight has been shed on the hefty sums shoveled into congressional campaign coffers in an effort to influence the Democrats' massive healthcare bill, little attention has been focused on the far larger sums received by President Barack Obama while he was a candidate in 2008.
A new figure, based on an exclusive analysis created for Raw Story by the Center for Responsive Politics, shows that President Obama received a staggering $20,175,303 from the healthcare industry during the 2008 election cycle, nearly three times the amount of his presidential rival John McCain. McCain took in $7,758,289, the Center found.

One quarter of US grain crops fed to cars - not people, new figures show
January 22, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
One-quarter of all the maize and other grain crops grown in the US now ends up as biofuel in cars rather than being used to feed people, according to new analysis which suggests that the biofuel revolution launched by former President George Bush in 2007 is impacting on world food supplies. The 2009 figures from the US Department of Agriculture shows ethanol production rising to record levels driven by farm subsidies and laws which require vehicles to use increasing amounts of biofuels. "The grain grown to produce fuel in the US [in 2009] was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels," said Lester Brown, the director of the Earth Policy Institute, a Washington thinktank ithat conducted the analysis. According to Brown, the growing demand for

Doctor claims he has evidence of the afterlife
January 20, 2010, MSNBC
A clinical psychologist, [Mary Jo] Rapini had long worked with terminal cancer patients. When they told her of their near-death experiences, she would often chalk their stories up as a reaction to their pain medication. But in April 2003, she faced her own mortality. She suffered an aneurysm while working out [in] a gym and was rushed to the hospital. She was in an intensive care unit for three days when she took a turn for the worse. “All of a sudden [doctors] were rushing around me and inserting things into me, and they called my husband,” she [said]. “I looked up and I saw this light; it wasn’t a normal light, it was different. It was luminescent. And it grew. I kept looking at it like, ‘What is that?’ Then it grew large and I went into it. I went into this tunnel, and I came into this room that was just beautiful. God held me, he called me by name, and he told me, ‘Mary Jo, you can’t stay.’ And he said, ‘Let me ask you one thing — have you ever loved another the way you’ve been loved here?’ And I said, ‘No, it’s impossible. I’m a human.’ And then he just held me and said, ‘You can do better.’ ” While Rapini’s account may seem far-fetched, [Dr. Jeffrey] Long [in his book Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences] says her recollections mirror nearly all stories of near-death experiences.
