Secret files show UK courts were misled over 9/11 suspect Lotfi Raissi

Rather than release Raissi when it emerged there was insufficient evidence to charge him, law enforcement officials in the UK colluded with the FBI to obtain a warrant for his extradition. There was no evidence to justify a warrant for terrorism, so Raissi was requested on charges relating to an allegation that he failed to disclose his knee surgery in a pilot application.

Flight 77: FBI exhibit contradicts Solicitor General's account of Barbara Olson's phone calls on 9/11


According to Marc Fisher and Don Phillips of the Washington Post, Barbara K. Olson called her husband twice in the final minutes. Her last words to him were, "What do I tell the pilot to do?"

"She called from the plane while it was being hijacked," said Theodore Olson — 42nd Solicitor General of the United States. "I wish it wasn't so, but it is."

"The two conversations each lasted about a minute, said Tim O'Brien, a CNN reporter and friend of the Olsons."

However, FBI exhibit P200054 from the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui contradicts the Solicitor General's account. It shows that Barbara Olson made only one phone call — it did not connect, and it lasted for 0 seconds.

Mr. Olson's account appeared on the front page of the Washington Post on September 12, 2001, and is repeated in The 9/11 Commission Report.

We've contacted Mr. Olson (tolson@gibsondunn.com) for comments.

9/11 trial: an amicus curiae brief from the 9/11 truth movement?

Amicus curiae is a legal Latin phrase, literally translated as "friend of the court", that refers to someone, not a party to a case, who volunteers to offer information on a point of law or some other aspect of the case to assist the court in deciding a matter before it. The information may be a legal opinion in the form of a brief, a testimony that has not been solicited by any of the parties, or a learned treatise on a matter that bears on the case. The decision whether to admit the information lies with the discretion of the court.

United Airlines Flight 175: Questions raised about flying a Boeing 767 at the speeds reported

Pilots For 9/11 Truth have recently analyzed data provided by the National Transportation Safety Board in terms of a "Radar Data Impact Speed Study" in which the NTSB determines speeds of 510 knots and 430 knots for United 175 (South Tower) and American 11 (North Tower), respectively.

Pilots For 9/11 Truth conclude that, "It is impossible for the alleged United 175 to achieve the speeds reported by the NTSB using EA990 as a benchmark."

Osama Bin Laden and 9/11: The Evidence

The idea that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks has been an article of faith for public officials and the mainstream media. Calling it an “article of faith” points to two features of this idea. On the one hand, no one in these circles publicly challenges this idea. . . .
