In this paper this creative process is accounted for on the basis of the idea that nature has a deep technological aspect that evolves as a result of selection processes that act upon observers making use of the technologies, leading to the conclusion that our universe is the product of agencies that use these evolved technologies to suit particular purposes.

Italian Supreme Court head calls for international 9/11 inquiry Fernando Imposimato, the President of the Italian Supreme Court, has raised the call for a criminal investigation of 9/11, comparing the terror attacks to the declassified "false flag" incidents carried out by the CIA in Italy under Operation Gladio. "The 9/11 attacks were a global state terror operation permitted by the administration of the USA, which had foreknowledge of the operation yet remained intentionally unresponsive in order to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq," Imposimato declared in a letter published on Sunday by the Journal of 9/11 Studies. As a former state prosecutor, Imposimato has extensive experience investigating high-profile crimes, including the kidnapping and assassination of Italian Prime Minster Aldo Moro and the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II. He also worked on the Anti-Mafia commission as a Senator, giving him a wealth of knowledge on the inner workings of organized crime syndicates. Read more...

The Journal of 9/11 Research and 9/11 Issues Alfred W. McCoy: Impunity at Home, Rendition Abroad How Two Administrations and Both Parties Made Illegality the American Way of Life Cross-posted with After a decade of fiery public debate and bare-knuckle partisan brawling, the United States has stumbled toward an ad hoc bipartisan compromise over the issue of torture that rests on two unsustainable policies: impunity at home and rendition abroad. President Obama has closed the CIA’s “black sites,” its secret prisons where American agents once dirtied their hands with waterboarding and wall slamming. This “resolution” of the torture issue may meet the needs of this country’s deeply divided politics. Perfecting a New Form of Torture The modern American urge to use torture did not, of course, begin on September 12, 2001. From 1950 to 1962, the CIA led a secret research effort to crack the code of human consciousness, a veritable Manhattan project of the mind with two findings foundational to a new form of psychological torture. But when President Bill Clinton sent the U.N.

911 International Inquiry In addition to the main presentations in the Herbst Theatre, there were presentations, films shown, public dialogues with speakers on topics raised in the program, tabling of resource materials on the second floor of the building. There were also additional meeting rooms for Inquiry Participants/Speakers engaged in deepening their understanding of 9-11. Truth be told, we had so many film-makers at the event that a few rooms were converted into studios for interviews and over 50 hours of video was recorded from the main presentations/interviews/actions/dialogues, and a Press Conference that preceded the event and that continued until 4 PM Friday Afternoon. Here is more information about the processes we used Open Space. Below are the main Presentations held in the Herbst Theatre which were all recorded (audio and visual) and the audiotapes are already available for purchase via T.U.C. Radio, We want to include links to where video and audio have been posted on the web. March 26 (9:30-?

White House Yanks Anti-TSA Petition From Website By Mary L. G. Theroux For a former community organizer, President Obama certainly seems to support anti-democratic activity with zeal—from his disproportionate use of Executive Orders, to this most recent action: According to the Electronic Privacy Information Center, At approximately 11:30 am EDT [Thursday], the White House removed a petition about the TSA airport screening procedures from the White House “We the People” website. White House The Wired article is also well worth a read, “Court Demands TSA Explain Why It Is Defying Nude Body Scanner Order.” A year ago, the U.S. The three-judge appellate court, which is one stop from the Supreme Court, said that the Transportation Security Administration breached federal law in 2009 when it formally adopted the Advanced Imaging Technology scanners as the “primary” method of screening. The petition, even if allowed to remain on the White House website, would have made no difference anyway. About the author: Mary L. Mary L. Visit Mary L.

Homeland Recap: If Nothing Else Faith in Homeland: restored. Just when I started to worry that the show had written itself into a corner in the season finale, that it would have been better off as a one-season wonder, and that it would break faith with viewers by extruding the Brody-as-sleeper-agent string until the show stopped being agreeably farfetched but gripping and became pathetic, wham! We got “New Car Smell,” written by series co-producer Meredith Stiehm (who scripted the show’s finest episode to date, “The Weekend”) and directed by David Semel. Brody as double agent? Here’s how it went down: The Congressman, booted from his home by his wife Jessica, took a room at a hotel and met with Carrie, whom he’d not-at-all-coincidentally run into earlier (she stopped just short of crashing into him and dropping an armload of textbooks, Glee-style) at the CIA. Then Carrie went to Brody’s room (against orders; she’s always disobeying orders) and laid out the truth instead of laying him. “My confusion?” “Your bullshit.”

Tony Blair At the Leveson Inquiry: No Surprises (Almost) A documentary filmmaker, David Lawley-Wakelin, broke into the long-running Leveson Inquiry as former Prime Minister Tony Blair was testifying and accused him of being paid by JP Morgan Chase when he sent British troops to support the American forces during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Lawley-Walkin shouted “This man should be arrested for war crimes” and called Blair a “war criminal.” Lord Justice Sir Brian Leveson told Blair that he was “sorry for that” and that he did not have to respond to the protester; Blair denied the accusations, commenting that it was his “experience that if you had 1,000 people in an event and somebody got up and shouted something, then it’s as if the other 999 needn’t have bothered showing up.” The morning intrusion in the court lasted only about a half a minute of the seven hours set aside for the former Labour leader to testify. As the New York Times commented, the intrusion “seemed also to show how Mr. Blair on Murdoch, the Press and Politicians
