9/11/01 Fifteen years out

The Auburn UU Fellowship humanists group holds their potluck and discussion meeting tonight, and I plan to go. Jim Newton is to lead a discussion on "Anatomy of the Deep State" by Mike Lofgren

I sent the following to Jim Newton, under the subject line "Deep State doings." The Deep State article is good, but it does not get to the actual deeds of the Deep State, and I would put at the top of that list the murder of JFK and the 9/11 attack. 

The best current summary of the evidence that the three 9/11 skyscrapers (Twin Towers + Bldg 7) were brought down not by the hijacked planes or fires but by controlled demolition (and thus the official conspiracy theory advanced by the U.S. Gov was fraudulent):  See also Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

About JFK, I recommend the book JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters

Highly recommended by Ray McGovern (retired CIA). Other reviews: 

“Douglass presents, brilliantly, an unfamiliar yet thoroughly convincing account of a series of creditable decisions of John F. Kennedy—at odds with his initial Cold War stance—that earned him the secret distrust and hatred of hard-liners among the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA. Did this suspicion and rage lead directly to his murder by agents of these institutions, as Douglass concludes? Many readers who are not yet convinced of this ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ by Douglass’s prosecutorial indictment will find themselves, perhaps—like myself—for the first time, compelled to call for an authoritative criminal investigation. Recent events give all the more urgency to learning what such an inquiry can teach us about how, by whom, and in whose interests this country is run.” --Daniel Ellsberg, author, Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers

In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters.” -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. 
“Right now, I ask all of you—please please, read JFK and the Unspeakable! I cried all night reading it, and didn’t sleep a wink. It is a book that could make us stand up and change the world, right now. Maybe we can save the world before it blows up. Really” —Yoko Ono

“A remarkable story that changed the way I view the world.”—JAMES BRADLEY, author of Flags of Our Fathers
Arguably the most important book yet written about a U.S. president … Should be required reading for all high school and college students, and anyone who is a registered voter!”—JOHN PERKINS, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman 
The best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance … But don’t take my word for it. Read this extraordinary book and reach your own conclusions.” —OLIVER STONE, director
"Jim Douglass has unraveled the story of President Kennedy’s astonishing and little-known turn toward peace, and the reasons why members of his own government felt he must be eliminated. This disturbing, enlightening, and ultimately inspiring book should be read by all Americans. It has the power to change our lives and to set us free."—MARTIN SHEEN

JFK and the Unspeakable is an exceptional achievement. Douglass has made the strongest case so far in the JFK assassination literature as to the Who and the Why of Dallas.”—GERALD McNIGHT, author of Breach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why
A one-hour video presentation by Jim Douglass:

David Ray Griffin on "911 Miracles"

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth:

Note: Judy and I in 1998, as outside coordinators of Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty (, published an essay by Jim Douglass entitled Compassion and the Unspeakable in the Murders of Martin, Malcolm, JFK and RFK, basically an edited transcript of an invited address Jim gave as the keynote speech at the 1997 annual meeting of the International Thomas Merton Society. This little 16-page pamphlet turned out to be the precursor of Jim's big book on JFK.
