I’m curious as to our readers’ opinions of Charlie Veitch, profiled by the Las Vegas Guardian Express as a former 9/11 Truther who changed his mind:

Once one of Britain’s principal conspiracy theorists as well as friend to David Icke and Alex Jones, Charlie Veitch, was known as a 9/11 “truther.” As soon as he realized that he had been duped, he stopped. But that was when his problems really began.
According to an interview Veitch gave to the Telegraph, Veitch, who had been Right-wing, joined the Territorial Army (TA). After a drunken night out with his best friend, his friend had turned to Veitch and told him that they had been lying to him. He told Veitch that 9/11 was not what he thought it was and that he was being given “special knowledge.” Veitch’s friend went on to show him a video entitled Terrorism: A History of Government Sponsored Terror, a video that was produced by US radio talk presenter, Alex Jones.

What will make or break the United States of America is the truth about 9/11, not its monetary policy, fiscal irresponsibility, lack of transparency, crony capitalistic economy, its inability to protect its citizenry, or even its brutal foreign policy. The truth about what transpired on 11 September 2001 will decide the fate of the United States of America. Everything else is secondary.
I. Truth and Lies of 9/11
On 9/11 the world changed. Not because the attacks on the United States were unique, since there have been many documented cases of false flag operations throughout history. The world changed because we forfeited the freedom of generations to come to obtain a delusional sense of security from an institution, an institution that has begun multiple wars of aggression, incurring trillions of dollars of debt and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths in the process.
I saw this flyer on the way to jiu-jitsu class and had to share. Something about a 9/11 memorial event offering food, door prizes and a fun run turns my stomach, but apparently I’m in the minority here in the Deep South. A local athletic shoe company and church is sponsoring the event, along with the local utility company and fire department.
“Bring the whole family for a fun-filled day!”

New York Magazine has an epic report on the secret unit built by the NYPD to infiltrate and monitor the city’s various communities for un-American sentiment:

The activities Kelly set in motion after 9/11 pushed deeply into the private lives of New Yorkers, surveilling Muslims in their mosques, their sporting fields, their businesses, their social clubs, even their homes in a way not seen in America since the FBI and CIA monitored antiwar activists during the Nixon administration.
Putting a CIA officer inside a police department was unprecedented. The CIA, by its very charter, was prohibited from having any “police, subpoena, or law enforcement powers or internal security functions.” But 9/11 had changed the equation.
To the extent Sanchez had an official title, it was the CIA director’s counterterrorism liaison to the state of New York. In reality, he was Cohen’s personal CIA representative, with an office at the CIA station in Manhattan and another at NYPD.
With the cost of office supplies on the rise, one New Hampshire woman thought she discovered another way to replace the ball point that fell between the couch cushions. It really is a “simple thing” when you think about it.
HOOKSET, N.H., Aug. 20 (UPI) — New Hampshire police said a woman who has called 911 multiple times in the past month was arrested for calling the emergency number to ask for a pen.
Police said Jeanie Defresne of Hookset, who has called the emergency number 10 times in the past month, called 911 during the weekend and requested a writing instrument, WBZ-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.
“I just want a simple thing,” Dufresne told the dispatcher. “A pen.”
The spying’s purpose isn’t to keep us safe from the terrorists. Digital Journal writes:
Contradicting a statement by ex-vice president Dick Cheney on Sunday that warrantless domestic surveillance might have prevented 9/11, 2007 court records indicate that the Bush-Cheney administration began such surveillance at least 7 months prior to 9/11.
The Bush administration bypassed the law requiring such actions to be authorized by FISA court warrants. Former QWest CEO John Nacchios said that at a meeting with the NSA on February 27, 2001, he and other QWest officials declined to participate. AT&T, Verizon and Bellsouth all agreed to shunt customer communications records to an NSA database.
Other sources corroborate the former CEO’s allegations, which were made in the course of his legal defense against insider trading charges. Both Slate and National Journal have published reports in which sources are quoted which support the former CEO’s claims.
Former Minnesota governor, one-time pro wrestler, Navy Special Operations veteran and actor Jesse Ventura joins the podcast to talk about his new book “DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government”. The drug wars, Nazis, fluoride, 9/11, the possible one world government of the future and much more is discussed along the way.
Strange problems via CBS Sacramento:
A man who called 911 more than 100 times in one month says he’s not going to stop until his concerns are heard by the federal government. Sacramento Police say he’s ignored warnings to stop calling over and over, so they arrested him for 911 abuse.
Jimmy Shao keeps a log book of every 911 call he’s made. He doesn’t believe he’s wasting the time of emergency responders because he has an emergency of his own: Shao believes he’s being watched by shadowy government authorities.
He claims to believe his body is controlled by satellites. “My brain, I can feel it starting. I’m blasted by the signals, every couple of minutes,” he said. “I yell and I scream, ‘Stop it, I don’t need this,’ but they never listen.”
Fresh out of jail, Shao promises he isn’t done dialing 911, “until Congress starts an investigation.”
