911 troubling facts about 9/11

Part I - “Saudisturbing - Who’s behind 9/11”

1. 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and Osama Bin Laden himself was Saudi-born.

2. In the days following 9/11, with the blessing of George W. Bush, at least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and the Bin Ladens out of the U.S. In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the Bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country. At least one private plane flew to pick up Saudi nationals while private flights were still grounded. The White House denied the very existence of that flight for years, until they finally revealed some of its details in response to a request from the 9/11 Commission.

3. Former Counterterrorism Chief Richard Clarke testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 3, 2003 and stated in part: “It is true that members of the Bin Laden family were among those who left. We knew that at the time. I can't say much more in open session, but it was a conscious decision with complete review at the highest levels of the State Department and the FBI and the White House.”

4. In 2002, the Congress noted that Saudi links to 9/11 are not being adequately explored.

5. In 2003, Los Angeles Times reported that the classified pages were kept out of a congressional report about 9/11. They demonstrated that the Saudi government not only provided significant money and aid to the suicide hijackers, but also allowed hundreds of millions of dollars to flow to Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups through suspect charities and other fronts.

6. A U.S. official who has read the document said that it describes "very direct, very specific links" between Saudi officials, two of the San Diego-based hijackers and other potential co-conspirators "that cannot be passed off as rogue, isolated or coincidental."

California’s green company costs taxpayers lots of green, raided by the FBI

Things are not so sunny at the solar firm Solyndra in Fremont, California. On September 8, 2011, the company’s headquarters were raided by the FBI with multiple search warrants. It was funded through an Energy Department loan program as one of 40 alternative energy projects that were expected to create about 60,000 jobs. After receiving over 90% of its $535 million in stimulus Obamabucks and over $1 billion dollars from private investors, Solyndra laid off 1,100 workers and filed for bankruptcy. Under the terms of the $784 million dollar bankruptcy filing, private investors would be first in line to collect the debts from the failed company, ahead of the American taxpayers. Less than two months before the company filed for bankruptcy, Solyndra's CEO, Brian Harrison met with members of the Congress, assuring them that the company “was in a strong financial position and in no danger of failing.”

The war over the web

Corruption hates exposure. Power prefers to go unchallenged. The Internet has become one of the most powerful tools at the disposal of truth tellers, truth seekers and whistleblowers. Print publications are losing money and shifting their content from print to digital. The Internet has become the new battleground where the government, the mainstream media and big businesses fight to re-establish their dominance. They jointly strive to control the online content and its sharing, location and usage tracking and as well as Internet commerce. To put it simply, the government wants to contain its critics, the mainstream media wants to knock out the alternatives and big enterprises would like to suffocate small online businesses. Lobbying the legislature is an expensive luxury that is infinitely more accessible to the rich and powerful. Money begets more money and power shares nothing without demand.
