text"Meet the No Planers" (no planes on 9/11, just missiles wrapped in holograms) by repost
For those who are not aware, a number of high profile people claim that real planes didn't hit the WTC towers on 9/11. Is it just a coincidence that they used to be government intelligence agents? Or worked for Bush? But the real question is, why do some within the 9/11 "truth" movement protect and promote these people who advocate holograms to mainstream media, leading to stories like these? One site that openly continues to promote Shayler and Reynolds is patriotsquestion911. Why? Bec...

Does the peace movement need better tactics, strategies, time, and energy deployment to beat down the drumbeats that lead us to war? Scott Ritter thinks so, as does Peoples Lobby. There is an art to war, as there is to law making and the peace movement needs to use b...
