CCC Calls Truthers™ “Nuts”; Self Implied

From georgewashington.blogspot.com

[Send the following email to everyone you know, so that even people who get all of their news from msnabcnnfox, which censors 9/11 information, get a dose of truth. There are almost 100 million people who have already woken up to at least some of the truth about 9/11, so we can spread this message virally … ]

9/11 Truthers are Nuts!

Or are they?

Let’s take a look:

MILITARY LEADERS

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan (Col. Ronald D. Ray) said that the official story of 9/11 is “the dog that doesn’t hunt” (bio)

Director of the U.S. “Star Wars” space defense program in both Republican and Democratic administrations, who was a senior air force colonel who flew 101 combat missions (Col. Robert Bowman) stated that 9/11 was an inside job. He also said:

If our government had merely [done] nothing, and I say that as an old interceptor pilot..I know the drill, I know what it takes, I know how long it takes, I know what the procedures are, I know what they were, and I know what theyfve changed them to..if our government had merely done nothing, and allowed normal procedures to happen on that morning of 9/11, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive. [T]hat is treason!

U.S. Army Air Defense Officer and NORAD Tac Director, decorated with the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and the Soldiers Medal (Capt. Daniel Davis) stated:

“there is no way that an aircraft . . . would not be intercepted when they deviate from their flight plan, turn off their transponders, or stop communication with Air Traffic Control … Attempts to obscure facts by calling them a ‘conspiracy Theory’ does not change the truth. It seems, ‘Something is rotten in the State.’ “

President of the U.S. Air Force Accident Investigation Board, who also served as Pentagon Weapons Requirement Officer and as a member of the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review, and who was awarded Distinguished Flying Crosses for Heroism, four Air Medals, four Meritorious Service Medals, and nine Aerial Achievement Medals (Lt. Col. Jeff Latas) is a member of a group which doubts the government’s version of 9/11

U.S. General, Commanding General of U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, decorated with the Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Purple Heart (General Wesley Clark) said “We’ve never finished the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had. The evidence seems pretty clear to me. I’ve seen that for a long time.”

Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official (Lt. Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski) finds various aspects of 9/11 suspicious

Lieutenant colonel, 24-year Air Force career, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the Defense Language Institute (Lt. Colonel Steve Butler) said “Of course Bush knew about the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism.”

Two-Star general (Major General Albert Stubbelbine) questions the attack on the Pentagon

U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, former instructor at the USAF Fighter Weapons School and NATOfs Tactical Leadership Program, with a 20-year Air Force career (Lt. Colonel Guy S. Razer) said the following:

“I am 100% convinced that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were planned, organized, and committed by treasonous perpetrators that have infiltrated the highest levels of our government ….

Those of us in the military took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. Just because we have retired does not make that oath invalid, so it is not just our responsibility, it is our duty to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 and bring them to justice, no matter how hard it is, how long it takes, or how much we have to suffer to do it.

We owe it to those who have gone before us who executed that same oath, and who are doing the same thing in Iraq and Afghanistan right now. Those of us who joined the military and faithfully executed orders that were given us had to trust our leaders. The violation and abuse of that trust is not only heinous, but ultimately the most accurate definition of treason!”

U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, a fighter pilot with over 300 combat missions flown and a 21-year Marine Corps career (Lt. Colonel Shelton F. Lankford) believes that 9/11 was an inside job, and said:

“This isn’t about party, it isn’t about Bush Bashing. It’s about our country, our constitution, and our future. …

Your countrymen have been murdered and the more you delve into it the more it looks as though they were murdered by our government, who used it as an excuse to murder other people thousands of miles away.

If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or … to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you? ….

Are you afraid that you will learn the truth and you can’t handle it? …”

U.S. Navy ‘Top Gun’ pilot (Commander Ralph Kolstad) who questions the official account of 9/11 and is calling for a new investigation, says “When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official story”.

The Group Director on matters of national security in the U.S. Government Accountability Office said that President Bush did not respond to unprecedented warnings of the 9/11 disaster and conducted a massive cover-up instead of accepting responsibility

Additionally, numerous military leaders from allied governments have questioned 9/11, such as:

Canadian Minister of Defense, the top military leader of Canada (Paul Hellyer)

Assistant German Defense Minister (Andreas Von Bulow)

Commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy (Anatoli Kornukov)

Chief of staff of the Russian armed forces (General Leonid Ivashov)

INTELLIGENCE PROFESSIONALS

A 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials (Raymond McGovern) said gI think at simplest terms, therefs a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a jokeh, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job.

A 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA’s Office of Regional and Political Analysis (William Bill Christison) said gI now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe. … All three [buildings that were destroyed in the World Trade Center] were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11.” (and see this).

20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer (David Steele) stated that “9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war”, and it was probably an inside job (see Customer Review dated October 7, 2006).

A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, whose Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called “perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle Easth, and astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that“the evidence points at” 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job .

The Division Chief of the CIAfs Office of Soviet Affairs, who served as Senior Analyst from 1966 – 1990. He also served as Professor of International Security at the National War College from 1986 – 2004 (Melvin Goodman) said “The final [9/11 Commission] report is ultimately a coverup.”

Professor of History and International Relations, University of Maryland. Former Executive Assistant to the Director of the National Security Agency. Former military attacheL in China. 21-year career in U.S. Army Intelligence (Major John M. Newman, PhD, U.S. Army)

questions the government’s version of the events of 9/11.

The head of all U.S. intelligence, the Director of National Intelligence (Mike McConnel) said “9/11 should have and could have been prevented”

9/11 COMMISSIONERS

The 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials lied to the Commission, and considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn’t bother to tell the American people (free subscription required).

Indeed, the co-chairs of the Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) now admit that the Commission largely operated based upon political considerations.

9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only “the first draft” of history.

9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”

9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”

Former 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”.

The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry, said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”

SCIENTISTS

A prominent physicist with 33 years of service for the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC (Dr. David L. Griscom) said that the official theory for why the Twin Towers and world trade center building 7 collapsed “does not match the available facts” and supports the theory that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition

A world-renowned scientist, recipient of the National Medal of Science, America’s highest honor for scientific achievement (Dr. Lynn Margulis) said:

I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken.

The former head of the Fire Science Division of the government agency which claims that the World Trade Centers collapsed due to fire (the National Institute of Standards and Technology), who is a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, with more than 25 years experience in fire research and its applications, and is a professor in the Department of Fire Protection Engineering at the University of Maryland (Dr. James Quintiere), called for an independent review of the World Trade Center Twin Tower collapse investigation. “I wish that there would be a peer review of this,” he said, referring to the NIST investigation. “I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they’ve done; both structurally and from a fire point of view. … I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable.”

Former Director for Research, Director for Aeronautical Projects, and Flight Research Program Manager for NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center, who holds masters degrees in both physics and engineering (Dwain A. Deets) says:

The many visual images (massive structural members being hurled horizontally, huge pyroclastic clouds, etc.) leave no doubt in my mind explosives were involved [in the destruction of the World Trade Centers on 9/11].”

A prominent physicist, former U.S. professor of physics from a top university, and a former principal investigator for the U.S. Department of Energy, Division of Advanced Energy Projects (Dr. Steven E. Jones) stated that the world trade centers were brought down by controlled demolition

A U.S. physics professor who teaches at several universities (Dr. Crockett Grabbe) believes that the World Trade Centers were brought down by controlled demolition

An expert on demolition (Bent Lund) said that the trade centers were brought down with explosives (in Danish)

A Dutch demolition expert (Danny Jowenko) stated that WTC 7 was imploded

A safety engineer and accident analyst for the Finnish National Safety Technology Authority (Dr. Heikki Kurttila) stated regarding WTC 7 that “The great speed of the collapse and the low value of the resistance factor strongly suggest controlled demolition.”

A 13-year professor of metallurgical engineering at a U.S. university, with a PhD in materials engineering, a former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Senior Staff Member (Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn), is calling for a new investigation of 9/11

A Danish professor of chemistry (Dr. Niels Harrit) said, in a mainstream Danish newspaper, “WTC7 collapsed exactly like a house of cards. If the fires or damage in one corner had played a decisive role, the building would have fallen in that direction. You don’t have to be a woodcutter to grasp this” (translated)

A former guidance systems engineer for Polaris and Trident missiles and professor emeritus, mathematics and computer science at a university concluded (Dr. Bruce R. Henry) that the Twin Towers “were brought down by planted explosives.”

A professor of mathematics (Gary Welz) said “The official explanation that I’ve heard doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t explain why I heard and felt an explosion before the South Tower fell and why the concrete was pulverized”

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS

A prominent engineer with 55 years experience, in charge of the design of hundreds of major building projects including high rise offices, former member of the California Seismic Safety Commission and former member of the National Institute of Sciences Building Safety Council (Marx Ayres) believes that the World Trade Centers were brought down by controlled demolition (see also this)

Two professors of structural engineering at a prestigious Swiss university (Dr. Joerg Schneider and Dr. Hugo Bachmann) said that, on 9/11, World Trade Center 7 was brought down by controlled demolition (translation here)

Charles Pegelow, structural engineer, of Houston, Texas (and see this)

Dennis Kollar, structural engineer, of West Bend, Wisconsin

Doyle Winterton, structural engineer (retired)

Haluk Akol, Structural Engineer and architect (ret.)

William Rice, P.E., structural engineer, former professor of Vermont Technical College

An architect, member of the American Institute of Architects, who has been a practicing architect for 20 years and has been responsible for the production of construction documents for numerous steel-framed and fire-protected buildings for uses in many different areas, including education, civic, rapid transit and industrial use (Richard Gage) disputes the claim that fire and airplane damage brought down the World Trade Centers and believes there is strong evidence of controlled demolition (many other architects who question 9/11 are listed here)

LEGAL SCHOLARS

Former Federal Prosecutor, Office of Special Investigations, U.S. Department of Justice under Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and currently a widely-sought media commentator on terrorism and intelligence services (John Loftus) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Former Inspector General, U.S. Department of Transportation; former Professor of Aviation, Dept. of Aerospace Engineering and Aviation and Professor of Public Policy, Ohio State University (Mary Schiavo) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois, Champaign; a leading practitioner and advocate of international law; responsible for drafting the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention; served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International (1988-1992), and represented Bosnia- Herzegovina at the World Court, with a Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both from Harvard University (Dr. Francis Boyle) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Former prosecutor in the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section of the U.S. Justice Department and a key member of Attorney General Bobby Kennedyfs anti-corruption task force; former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois (J. Terrence “Terry” Brunner) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Professor Emeritus, International Law, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University; in 2001 served on the three-person UN Commission on Human Rights for the Palestine Territories, and previously, on the Independent International Commission on Kosovo (Richard Falk) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Bessie Dutton Murray Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus and Director, Center for Human Rights, University of Iowa; Fellow, World Academy of Art and Science. Honorary Editor, Board of Editors, American Journal of International Law (Burns H. Weston) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Former president of the National Lawyers Guild (C. Peter Erlinder), who signed a petition calling for a real investigation into 9/11. And see petition.

Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Troy University; associate General Counsel, National Association of Federal Agents; Retired Agent in Charge, Internal Affairs, U.S. Customs, responsible for the internal integrity and security for areas encompassing nine states and two foreign locations; former Federal Sky Marshall; 27-year U.S. Customs career (Mark Conrad) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Professor of Law, University of Freiburg; former Minister of Justice of West Germany (Horst Ehmke) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Director of Academic Programs, Institute for Policy and Economic Development, University of Texas, El Paso, specializing in executive branch secrecy policy, governmental abuse, and law and bureaucracy; former U.S. Army Signals Intelligence officer; author of several books on law and political theory (Dr. William G. Weaver) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Famed trial attorney (Gerry Spence) questions the government’s version of 9/11.

Former Instructor of Criminal Trial Practice, Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California at Berkeley 11-year teaching career. Retired Chief Assistant Public Defender, Contra Costa County, California 31-year career (William Veale) said:

“When you grow up in the United States, there are some bedrock principles that require concerted effort to discard. One is the simplest: that our leaders are good and decent people whose efforts may occasionally warrant criticism but never because of malice or venality… But one grows up. … And with the lawyer’s training comes the reliance on evidence and the facts that persuade… After a lot of reading, thought, study, and commiseration, I have come to the conclusion that the attacks of 9/11 were, in their essence, an inside job perpetrated at the highest levels of the U S government.”

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

Current U.S. Senator (Patrick Leahy) states “The two questions that the congress will not ask . . . is why did 9/11 happen on George Bush’s watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen?”

Current Republican Congressman (Ron Paul) states that “we see the [9/11] investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on”

Current Democratic Congressman (Dennis Kucinich) hints that we aren’t being told the truth about 9/11

Former Democratic Senator (Mike Gravel) states that he supports a new 9/11 investigation and that we don’t know the truth about 9/11

Former U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the Military Research and Development Subcommittee (Curt Weldon) has shown that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job

FAMILY MEMBERS AND HEROIC FIRST RESPONDERS

A common criticism of those who question 9/11 is that they are being “disrespectful to the victims and their families”.

However, half of the victim’s families believe that 9/11 was an inside job (according to the head of the largest 9/11 family group, Bill Doyle) (and listen to this interview). Many family and friends of victims not only support the search for 9/11 truth, but they demand it (please ignore the partisan tone). See also this interview.

Indeed, it has now become so clear that the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash that the same 9/11 widows who called for the creation of the 9/11 Commission are now demanding a NEW investigation (see also this video).

And dying heroes, soon-to-be victims themselves, the first responders who worked tirelessly to save lives on and after 9/11, say that controlled demolition brought down the Twin Towers and that a real investigation is necessary.

PSYCHIATRISTS AND PSYCHOLOGISTS

Finally, those who attack people who question the government’s version of 9/11 as “crazy” may wish to review the list of mental health professionals who have concluded that the official version of 9/11 is false:

Psychiatrist Carol S. Wolman, MD

Psychiatrist E. Martin Schotz

Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University Medical Center, as well as Radiology, at Duke University Medical Center D. Lawrence Burk, Jr., MD

Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean of the Graduate School at Ruters University Barry R. Komisaruk

Professor of Psychology at University of New Hampshire William Woodward

Professor of Psychology at University of Essex Philip Cozzolino

Professor of Psychology at Goddard College Catherine Lowther

Professor Emeritus of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies Ralph Metzner

Professor of Psychology at Rhodes University Mike Earl-Taylor

Retired Professor of Psychology at Oxford University Graham Harris

Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska and licensed Psychologist Ronald Feintech

Ph.D. Clinical Neuropsychologist Richard Welser

THOUSANDS OF OTHERS

The roster above is only a sample. There are too many Ph.D. scientists and engineers, architects, military and intelligence officials, politicians, legal scholars and other highly-credible people who question 9/11 — literally thousands — to list in one place. Here are a few additional people to consider:

The former director of the FBI (Louis Freeh) says there was a cover up by the 9/11 Commission

Former air traffic controller, who knows the flight corridor which the two planes which hit the Twin Towers flew “like the back of my hand” and who handled two actual hijackings (Robin Hordon) says that 9/11 could not have occurred as the government says, and that planes can be tracked on radar even when their transponders are turned off (also, listen to this interview)

Perhaps “the premiere collapse expert in the country”, who 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer referred to as a “very, very respected expert on building collapse”, the head of the New York Fire Department’s Special Operations Command and the most highly decorated firefighter in its NYFD history, who had previously “commanded rescue operations at many difficult and complex disasters, including the Oklahoma City Bombing, the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, and many natural disasters worldwide” thought that the collapse of the South Tower was caused by bombs, because the collapse of the building was too even to have been caused by anything else (pages 5-6).

Former Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and Carter (Morton Goulder), former former Deputy Director to the White House Task Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US Department of State Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann), as well as a who’s who of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11

Former FBI agent (Robert Wright) says “The FBI, rather than trying to prevent a terrorist attack, was merely gathering intelligence so they would know who to arrest when a terrorist attack occurred.”

Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that “very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been”, that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of the current administration, and that there’s enough evidence to justify a new, “hard-hitting” investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath

Former FBI translator, who the Department of Justice’s Inspector General and several senators have called extremely credible (free subscription required) (Sibel Edmonds), said “If they were to do real investigations we would see several significant high level criminal prosecutions in this country. And that is something that they are not going to let out. And, believe me; they will do everything to cover this up”. She also is leaning towards the conclusion that 9/11 was an inside job.

Hmmm . . . maybe 9/11 Truthers are not nuts.

Save Kenneth Foster, to be Executed in 2 Days
Thanks Mia for the tireless work in NYC.

Most of you have probably heard of Kenneth Foster. He has been on death row for the past 10 years under Texas’s law of parties. He is to be exicuted this thursday night!

Foster was found guilty in a murder trial in which the judge and jury knew of his innosence. They are aware that he was not the murderer nor did he know that a murder was to occure. He is being exicuted because of his lack of prior knowledge to the time leading up to the murder. To read more on his story, you can visit:
http://www.freekenneth.com

This THURSDAY at 6:30 PM, join the Campaign to End the Death Penalty,
local activists, and community members at a rally and vigil for Kenneth
Foster, who is scheduled to be executed in Texas that night. We will gather in front of the State Office Building in Harlem at 125th St. and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd to show our solidarity with Kenneth and his family and speak out against the execution.

Call 917-435-3614 for more information.

I’m pro-death, as anybody who knows me can attest, but this is just asinine. This isn’t like Mumia; no-one is saying the kid killed anybody or even that he had an inkling that murder was a possible night-cap activity on the evening in question. Yeah, he was out bus-thugging with some dipshits and a gun in his Pappy’s rental. He’s a dipshit too. Not a killer. There’s a big fucking difference, it’s a tangible one. See, with dipshits, you just wind up with something stolen or broken. Petty shit. With killers, well….somebody’s dead.

We’re crunching some numbers from the Texas Death Depository right now, just for giggles (and to avoid work). BRB.

Open Letter To The Aether

My fellow Americans:

Dennis Kucinich stood alone yesterday as he delivered articles of
impeachment against vice-president Richard P Cheney. It is not
surprising that this may come as news to many, being as there has been
little to no coverage of this overdue and desperately required action.

Although action is of course encumbent to affect movement, we all know
the American citizen is incapable of this, so I merely encourage all
to at least reflect upon these dual facts.

Enjoy your last rays of imperial sunshine,

Legal Update

Re: Mumia Abu-Jamal v. Martin Horn, Pennsylvania Director of Corrections
U.S. Court of Appeals Nos. 0 1-90 14,02-900 1 (death penalty)

Dear Friends:

Today notification was received that oral argument in the case of my client, Mumia Abu-Jamal, is scheduled on Thursday, May 17, 9:30 am, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Ceremonial Courtroom, 1″ Floor, U.S. Courthouse, 6″‘ and Market Streets, Philadelphia. The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., and the National Lawyers Guild, which have filed amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs, are also participating.

This case concerns Mr. Abu-Jamal’s right to a fair trial, the struggle against the death penalty, and the political repression of an outspoken journalist. Racism and politics are threads that have run through this case since his 1981 arrest. The complex issues under consideration, which are of great constitutional significance, include:

Whether Mr. Abu-Jamal was denied the right to due process of law and a fair trial under the Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments because of the prosecutor’s “appeal-after-appeal” argument which encouraged the jury to disregard the presumption of innocence and reasonable doubt, and err on the side of guilt.

Whether the prosecution’s use of peremptory challenges to exclude African Americans from sitting on the jury violated Mr. Abu-Jamal’s rights to due process and equal protection of the law under the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments, and contravened Batson v. Kentucky, 476 U.S. 79 (1986).

Whether the jury instructions and verdict form that resulted in the death penalty deprived Mr. Abu- Jamal of rights guaranteed by the Eight and Fourteenth Amendments to due process of law, equal protection of the law, and not to be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, and violated Mills v. Maryland, 486 U.S. 367 (1988), since the judge precluded the jurors from considering any mitigating evidence unless they all agreed on the existence of a particular circumstance.

Whether Mr. Abu-Jamal was denied due process and equal protection of the law under the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments during post-conviction hearings as the result of the bias and racism of Judge Albert F. Sabo which included the comment that he was “going to help’em fry the ni – – er”.

Recently the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office sent a letter to the court suggesting that the entire Third Circuit should disqualify itself from deciding the case of my client. We filed a reply strongly objecting to this absurd request, explaining that the position of opposing counsel was “utterly unfounded and should be rejected.” On March 10 the court rebuked the prosecution, advising that it had failed to follow proper procedure and thus no action would be taken.

Professor Judith L. Ritter, associate counsel, and I are in this case to win a new and fair trial for Mr. Abu-Jamal. The goal is for our client to be free. Nevertheless, he remains in great danger. If all is lost, he will be executed. Your interest in this struggle for human rights and against the death penalty is appreciated.

Yours very truly,
Robert R. Bryan
Lead counsel for Mumia Abu-Jamal

The FOP Attacks Donald Payne, one of the 31 representatives who opposed the House Resolution condemning the naming of “Rue Mumia” in Saint-Denis, France

The Fraternal Order Of Polive (FOP), having successfully intimidated Chaka Fattah, is now going after Donald Payne, former chair of the Congresssional Black Caucus, signer of the 1995 Fattah pro-Mumia letter, a clear ally in the past, and having recently been one of the courageous 31 who opposed the House Resolution condemning Saint-Denis. See below for the details of this campaign in the form of the FOP press release.

Call Congressman Payne’s office, write, fax, etc. to express your support. Details will be forthcoming. This is the government/FOP terrorism. Note how the FOP describes its power to intimidate those who might even consider opposing them.

Please call, fax, or e-mail Congressman Donald Payne of New Jersey, to thank him for his principled “no” vote re the December 6th vote to condemn Saint-Denis for naming a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Urge him to stay strong in the face of the FOP attempts to punish and intimidate him.
ATTENTION NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS, PARTICULARLY IN PAYNE’S CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT: YOUR SUPPORT IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT.
Donald Payne’s contact info:

Long live the people’s resistance! We will not be intimidated by these cowardly, fascistic, organizations and individuals that pretend to be defenders of “safety”. They are violent defenders of the war-making, prison-building, torturing, and killing that violates international law and all standards of justice but which they try to pass off as “law enforcement”.

FOP PRESS RELEASE

POLICE OFFICERS DEMAND PAYNE BE DROPPED FROM ST. PATRICK’S DAY

HONORTRENTON, NJ

The Fraternal Order of Police * New Jersey State Lodge has asked organizers of Newark’s St. Patrick’s Day parade to reverse their decision to dedicate this year’s parade to U.S. Congressman Donald M. Payne.

The police organization made its request by letter to Kevin P. Frey, general chairman of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee.”Congressman Payne does not deserve this honor,” said FOPNJ president Edward R. Brannigan. “His disrespect for police officers and apparent sympathy for a convicted cop killer is repugnant and undeserving of any honor.”

On December 6, 2006 the U.S. House of Representatives voted to condemn a decision by St. Denis, France to rename a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Known at the time as Wesley Cook, Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering 25-year-old Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner on December 9, 1981.The House resolution condemning the street renaming passed by an overwhelming 368-31 vote. Payne was one of the 31 House members to vote against the resolution.”Congressman Payne’s vote against condemning an honor for a convicted cop killer is a slap in the face of every law enforcement officer and the family of Daniel Faulkner,” said Brannigan, a retired Newark police officer and Grand Marshal of the city’s 2004 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. “Newark’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee should reverse its decision to honor Payne, or risk sullying it’s own reputation by disrespecting Officer Faulkner’s sacrifice.”

The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 318,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. The FOP is the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. It is committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation.

**************************************************************

TO SIGN ON TO THIS LETTER, SEND YOUR NAME AND ORGANIZATION TO: mailto:mark.taylor@ptsem.edu>mark.taylor@ptsem.edu

An Open Letter To John Conyers, Jr.
Chair, House Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives

1. We the undersigned demand that you initiate formal hearings and inquiry to reconsider House Resolution 1082 (December 6, 2006) that condemned the city of St-Denis, France, for naming a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, and also called upon France’s national government to take action against St-Denis.

2. We denounce the Resolution’s intervention into St-Denis’ municipal affairs and into those of a foreign sovereign nation. We would not expect the U.S. government to take action against one of its own cities because a foreign legislative body disagrees with a decision made by a U.S. city, and it is outrageous for a U.S. legislative body to now call for French governmental action against St-Denis. We commend the 31 House members who voted against such an unacceptable resolution.

3. We reaffirm what was clear from St-Denis’s inaugural act for creating “Mumia Abu-Jamal Street:” its intention to express opposition to the death penalty world wide, and appreciation for Abu-Jamal’s exemplary advocacy for justice. We applaud St. Denis for its vision and courage in highlighting Abu-Jamal’s struggle.
4. We protest the haste of the Resolution, a condemnation of St-Denis that was rushed through the House of Representatives in the last three days of the previous, 109th Congress, and under a suspension of rules without benefit of a single hearing or of any of the usual considerations by the House Committee on the Judiciary.

5. We disapprove of the Resolution’s interjection of legislative powers into a judicial matter that is still alive and pending before a court of law. H.R. 1082 conveniently hides this fact, being silent about four crucial claims in Abu-Jamal’s case that are now being considered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

6. We object to the Resolution’s false claim that Abu-Jamal was tried by “a jury of his peers.” The truth is that this very issue was accepted as a ground for appeal of his conviction by the Third Circuit. In fact, Abu-Jamal’s jury was purged of 11 qualified African-American jurors by the prosecutor’s unconstitutional use of peremptory challenges, leaving only 2 African Americans among the 12 who decided on his case and his sentence in a city that is 44% African American.

7. We find scandalous that the language of the Resolution has such careless disregard for the facts that it invents new inflammatory rhetoric about the case, claiming wrongly, for example, that Abu-Jamal “struck Officer Faulkner four times in the back with his gun,” a point not even made by the prosecutors at the original trial.

8. We register our grievance that this Resolution was passed over your vote and spurns past actions of support by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and the National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL). In 1999, the CBC claimed that in Abu-Jamal’s case “treatment of evidence and application of justice had been arbitrary and inconsistent,” and a 2004 resolution of the NBCSL joined with organizations the world over to call for a new trial and his release from prison.

9. We deplore how this hastily-enacted resolution entangles the U.S. Congress in making Abu-Jamal more vulnerable to a hasty execution. The rush to judgment and execution leaves numerous issues insufficiently addressed by the courts, even by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, whose comprehensive rulings against Abu-Jamal, according to a meticulous study by Amnesty International in 2000, were sullied by the connections of at least five of the Pennsylvania justices to the Fraternal Order of Police that still campaigns openly for his execution. One of the justices ruling against Abu-Jamal, Ron Castille, did not recuse himself, even though he was a former Philadelphia D.A. who had previously filed briefs against Abu-Jamal. Among the issues still awaiting adequate and full airing are these: (a) the failure of police to do basic investigative acts like ballistics checks, fingerprinting, and securing of the crime scene; (b) the bribing, exclusion or intimidation of important witnesses against Abu-Jamal; (c) prosecutors’ intentional efforts to prevent African Americans serving on Abu-Jamal’s jury; (d) the existing and mounting evidence that yet another man was in the car stopped by Officer Faulkner on the night of his killing and that Faulkner had this other man’s driver’s license in his pocket; (e) a court stenographer’s affidavit that she heard the original trial judge, Albert Sabo, say about Abu-Jamal’s case, “Yeah, and I’m going to help them fry the ni – – er”; (f) the fact that the original prosecutor, Joseph McGill, has been quoted as saying in the Philadelphia Inquirer that Abu-Jamal “could have been convicted of a lesser offense” had he waged “a true defense.”

10. We renounce the Resolution’s false claim that honoring Abu-Jamal with a street name in St-Denis is an affront to law enforcement. On the contrary, St-Denis’ action guards the integrity of law and justice, and even the legacy of Officer Daniel Faulkner, by insisting that all claims about violations of Abu-Jamal’s due process and Constitutional rights be investigated and aired fully in courts of law.

THEREFORE, we reaffirm our demand that the House Committee on the Judiciary begin a formal hearing to reconsider the egregious misstep of H.R. 1082, which was passed so hastily by the 109th Congress. The formal inquiry would have the following purposes: (1) to allow all sides, especially representatives from St-Denis, France, to be present and give expression to their views before Congress, and (2) to allow Congress to find an appropriate voice on the matter of Abu-Jamal’s case – a voice that respects House legislative processes that are free of hasty decision-making, a voice that does not interject itself into the active legal case of Abu-Jamal, and a voice that would respect the sovereign matters of another nation’s city.
