The Lawyers Committee For 9/11 Inquiry.


In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Congress initiated the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001″, also known as the “Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11”.  It was comprised of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. This was followed in January 2003 by the U.S. Government’s public investigation known as the 9/11 Commission. Their task was to fully investigate and explain what had occurred on 09/11/2001.

Beginning almost immediately and persisting to the present, serious questions have been raised about both the Congressional Joint Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission’s version of events surrounding 9/11.  There has been extensive media coverage of anomalies in the official account, destruction of evidence, obstruction, and even perjury. Many observers, including notably the families of the victims, criticized both inquiries for failing to address hundreds of key questions. An objective analysis, even quoting admissions by members of the investigations, leads to evidence of cover ups.

Given that the events of 9/11/01 has been used to shape U.S. foreign and military policy and ushered in an era of all-encompassing surveillance of all Americans, much more scrutiny and fact-finding is warranted.

Many chapters listing anomalies and problems cited by government officials which illustrate the shortcomings of the official 9/11 Commission’s investigation. Here are just a few facts to consider:

  • Evidence at the scene of the World Trade Center and Pentagon was destroyed or confiscated and withheld from public scrutiny.
  • Evidence given by the CIA to the 9/11 Commission was obtained through torture and is inadmissible.
  • Tapes held by the FAA were destroyed.Eyewitness reports from firefighters, police officers, and other reliable witnesses present in and near the WTC buildings on 9/11 have never been submitted as evidence in a legal action.
  • News reports, most notably from local New York City television stations, containing coverage of loud explosions were never presented as part of any official investigation. A FOIA case has revealed that NIST had made false statements claiming there were no samples of steel from WTC 7 for analysis when a photo that was obtained proves there is a sample.
  • There continues to be thousands of pages of classified documents.  A forensic analysis of physical evidence at the crime scenes has yet to occur.

In a properly functioning judicial system, federal and state attorney generals or special prosecutors would have taken actions to establish all the facts and obtain the fullest measure of justice. The reality has fallen far short of this.

New John Titus Film Exposes Corruption At The Bank For International Settlements.

By Jerry Alatalo


“And it occurs to no one that to admit a greatness not commensurate with the standard of right and wrong is merely to admit one’s own nothingness and immeasurable meanness.”

– LEO TOLSTOY (1828-1910) Russian writer


ohn Titus’ new documentary film “All the Plenary’s Men” exposes the criminal strategies and operations of the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The title was likely chosen by the filmmaker to rhyme with, and have the same impact on society as, the Watergate-focused book by investigative journalists Bob Woodward  and Carl Bernstein – “All the President’s Men”. Watergate – in the view of attorney Daniel Sheehan – occurred relative to Richard Nixon’s fears that the Democratic National Committee had information showing President John F. Kennedy was murdered in broad daylight by entities, specifically a hand-picked team of hired assassins, inside the U.S. “deep state”

Mr. Titus’ powerful new film focuses on crimes of a seemingly different quality than the coup d’état of the American government through murdering its democratically elected president. The film exposes how the most powerful and wealthy people on Earth exercise control of governments and populations while covering up massive crimes against humanity with impunity.

Mr. Titus has noted in interviews that “All the Plenary’s Men” is likely the second in a three-part trilogy of films, the first being “The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime”. Given “All the Plenary’s Men” should become a worldwide phenomenon and ignite conversations and further in-depth research projects in all nations,  one can say with certainty those powerful private interests controlling the extremely secretive (until now) Bank for International Settlements – known as the “central bank of the world’s central banks” –  are fully aware they have just been hit with a monumental public relations “problem”.

It might be the case that it is almost impossible to overestimate how profoundly serious and important the facts revealed in Mr. Titus’ film “All the Plenary’s Men” are as they relate to the entire human race. The film is truly historic and evokes mental images from the Christian bible of the man called Jesus’ overturning the tables of the money changers, generated by righteous indignation.

While not wishing to categorize John Titus as somehow the “second coming of Christ”, from a spiritual perspective which perceives human evolution as an increasingly rapid revealing and resolving of crimes harming fellow members of the human family, Mr. Titus has provided an effective information tool for (if acted upon) positive societal uplift the world over.

There are times when men and women upon learning historical and persisting facts and realities about how “things” happen on Earth wish they hadn’t. Because of the disturbing nature of the gained awareness they regret coming to know in the first place, and that it would have been preferable and less stressful to remain “in the dark”.

The reality revealed by Mr. Titus is precisely the type of knowledge men and women often feel depressed and frustrated afterward for coming to understand, mainly because one feels impotent or powerless to act on that newly accumulated knowledge.

For those who wish to stay “in the dark” and avoid the stress related to knowing about how the world’s most powerful and wealthy operate, particularly their truly destructive criminality – do not watch “All the Plenary’s Men”.

However, for those who wish to know …

Who owns the so-called “systemically important financial institutions”? …

Donald Trump, State Sponsored Terrorists, And “Shell Game.”

By Jerry Alatalo

“The essence of lying is in deception, not in words; a lie may be told in silence, by the accent on a syllable, by a glance of the eye attaching a peculiar significance to a sentence; but all of these kinds of lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded.”

– JOHN RUSKIN (1819-1900) British writer

olitical analyst and former U.S. Army psychological warfare officer Scott Bennett has since 2012-2013 been relentlessly trying to bring appropriate action in the U.S. government on explosive information about terrorist financing presented in his book “Shell Game”. Mr. Bennett wrote the book after meeting Swiss bank whistleblower Brad Birkenfeld in prison where both men served sentences for crimes neither committed, and where Brad Birkenfeld shared a massive amount of information directly related to Saudi bank accounts used for financing ISIS, Al Qaeda and similar terrorist groups, obtained while Birkenfeld was an executive at UBS Bank in Switzerland.

After leaving prison, Bennett wrote “Shell Game” detailing the scandalous facts Birkenfeld shared with him, then sent reports to virtually every member (Republican and Democrat) of the U.S. Congress, top military officials and numerous major media outlets in America. That was in the 2012-2013 time period during the presidency of Barack Obama, and his efforts came to naught – not one elected U.S. official, military commander or media outlet took action to investigate, speak out, or report on the enormous scandal.

Press TV of Iran and RT (Russia) have had Scott Bennett on their political talk programs many times in recent years, yet he has never been seen and heard describing the profound scandal he discovered then wrote about on any Western corporate media outlet. In contrast, Mr. Bennett’s massive story has become known by millions of men and women who have decided to leave mainstream media, choosing instead to get their news from alternative or independent sources, namely the internet.

During an appearance on PressTV’s talk program “The Debate” with fellow guest, columnist, political scientist and radio host Wilmer Leon recently, Bennett noted that he has shared his book and story with the Donald Trump administration, and that he has high expectations the scandal will finally become revealed after years of effective and total coverup. Those years up until today have shown unanimous American high-level leaders’ disregard and ignoring of the stupendous world-consequence facts involved.

Scott Bennett has in the past described the information contained in his book “Shell Game” as of greater consequence than the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals combined.

We wrote the following comments after watching the remarkable discussion:

“It would be a very good idea to invite these two gentlemen back for another conversation, focused on the much deeper and more important topic of “state-sponsored terrorism” – because in this discussion Mr. Leon was focused on wiretapping of Trump and Mr. Bennett was focused on terrorist financing using major international banks like UBS in Switzerland”.

“If Mr. Bennett and Mr. Leon were to sit down for an hours-long conversation it is highly likely they would come to a profound agreement and understanding of what is reported in the book “Shell Game”, which, it is essential to note, was sent in 2012-2013 to virtually every member of the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States – and where NOT ONE elected official responded by initiating appropriate investigations”.

“In defense of Mr. Leon, he is unaware of the truly explosive information Mr. Bennett put in his book and has for years been trying to bring to the attention of government officials, American citizens, and/or anyone who could help bring the absolutely disturbing truth out in the open. Mr. Leon asked the correct and reasonable question when he suggested Republicans took no action on the terrorist financing scandal against the Obama administration between 2008 and 2016, and the answer is that BOTH Republican and Democrat elected officials ignored Mr. Bennett’s efforts to reveal the evidence of major terrorist financing crimes”.

“The essential question now becomes: Will President Donald Trump act on Mr. Bennett’s years-long efforts to bring the horrendous truth, or will President Donald Trump maintain the enormous and continuing BIPARTISAN coverup of the 21st century?”

Rumors Of Wars: CIA Awards Saudi Prince Medal For ‘Anti-Terrorism’?

By Jerry Alatalo

RethinkAlphabet While a lot of men and women observers of world events have begun using references to George Orwell’s classic Twilight Zone-meets-authoritarianism novel “1984” lately, seeing the United States Central Intelligence Agency give the “George Tenet Medal” to a crown prince of Saudi Arabia has those men and women searching for something beyond Orwell – if such extreme, never-before-used descriptive words are even available, or within the realm of possibility.

As Dr. Kevin Barrett correctly notes in his short PressTV interview, the event is one which generates a state of mind where one can’t decide whether it’s better to laugh or cry. Laugh – simply because the level of “chutzpah” and straight in-your-face audacity to pull this off with a serious face is off the charts. Cry.. because the level of desperation necessary to descend to such a deceitful level, sadly and pitifully attempting public relations’ damage control over increasing Earthly awareness of who the sponsors of terrorism are.. signals war is fast approaching.

Unfortunately, the ridiculous dog-and-pony show for international public relations purposes is far from laughable, but represents the most serious and potentially deadly of matters. Consider this comes along just after the controversial Amnesty International “report” painting the Syrian government and President Bashar al Assad as mass-murderers of prisoners – most notably without Amnesty International providing any legally useful evidence whatsoever.

These efforts to shape public opinion the world over by disseminating high-quality production, false reports are not carried out for ordinary purposes; they are conducted to shape public opinion into favorable perceptions/acceptance of war entered for so-called “humanitarian” purposes, or as part of fighting the “Great War on Terror”.

Can anyone name what the crown prince and Saudi Arabia have done to deserve a prestigious award for fighting against terrorism? Can anybody name Saudi Arabia’s major accomplishments – any successes against terrorists – since September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center mass-murder events, in the now over 15-year “War on Terror”?

The people of the world have heard and seen enough “fake news”. The people of the world shall from this day forward demand, insist on, and accept no less than the truth.
