The Truth about the 28 Pages and its Enduring Cover-up

By Barry Kissin




The lead sponsors of the legislation to uncover the 28 pages of the Congressional report on the attacks of 9-11 were Representative Walter Jones and Senator Rand Paul, two Republicans in fact, both practically unique in their unabashed opposition to our constant wars of intervention. The release of the 28 pages is a victory for Americans who yearn for peace. It comes at a desperate moment in human history. It is imperative and urgent that peace activists take full advantage of the released 28 pages.


The essential truth about the 28 pages is that our own government, (Bush administrations followed by Obama administrations), ever since 9-11, has covered up Saudi Government complicity in 9-11. All the while, our government has continued to maintain very close relations, especially with the Saudi Intelligence Agency and the Saudi military.


The New York Times says the pages were “kept secret for nearly 14 years out of concern that it might fray diplomatic relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia.” We are supposed to accept as believable and legitimate that our government covered up Saudi complicity in 9-11 in order to maintain diplomatic relations and financial relations and everlasting Saudi cooperation in the never-ending Global War on Terror.


All of the top Bush administration officials, Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Powell, Tenet, during the run-up to our invasion of Iraq, lied over and over again about fabricated Iraqi links to al Qaeda and complicity in 9-11, while they all knew about, and it now must become recognized, coordinated with the Saudis in 9-11.


The name that arises 17 times in the 28 pages is that of Prince Bandar bin Sultan. He is no “low-level” Saudi government official. He has been central to the Saudi-American alliance since the early eighties. Ultimately, he served 22 years as the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. — through 9-11 and until 2005. This is the man known as “Bandar Bush,” a nickname given to him by George W., based on Bandar’s very longstanding and close affiliation with the Bush family.


In 2005, Ambassador Bandar was recalled by Riyadh. Why?


The New York Post published a piece by Hoover Institution media fellow Paul Sperry: “‘Our investigations contributed to the ambassador’s departure,’ an investigator who worked with the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Washington told me.”


What were these investigations related to Bandar?


All of the page references below are to the 28 pages where they appear as the concluding chapter of the report of the Joint House and Senate Intelligence Committees’ Inquiry into the attacks of 9-11.


One of several investigations implicating Bandar covered in the 28 pages produced documentary evidence that Bandar and his wife directly sent more than $100,000 to a man named Bassnan and his wife (Page 427) while Bassnan resided across the street in San Diego from two of the Saudi 9-11 hijackers (Page 417).


The 28 pages cite an FBI document that states that Bassnan and a man named Bayoumi “have been ‘close to each other for a long time.’” (Page 417). Bayoumi welcomed the same two hijackers to southern California when they arrived in Feb., 2000. (Page 416). Bayoumi also was being supported by monies traced to the Saudi government, namely from the Saudi Ministry of Defense. (Page 423). Before the two hijackers arrived, Bayoumi’s allowance was $465 per month. One month after, this jumped to more than $3700 per month, dropped to $3200 when one of the hijackers left San Diego in Dec. 2000, and stayed at that amount until Aug. 2001 when Bayoumi left the U.S. “approximately one month before the Sept. 11 attacks.” (Page 425).


Bayoumi arranged for a translator for the two hijackers (they did not speak English), co-signed their lease for the apartment they shared with a “long-time FBI informant” and helped them obtain drivers licenses and enter flight school. (Page 422).


Bandar’s direct beneficiary Bassnan told an FBI asset that he did more for the two hijackers than did Bayoumi (Page 417). Bassnan referred to Osama bin Laden as ruler of the Islamic world and “as if he were a god.”(Page 428). Bassnan knew bin Laden’s family in Saudi Arabia and was in cell phone contact with bin Ladins living in the U.S. (Page 428). The investigations referred to in the 28 pages cite “many ties [between Bassnan] and the Saudi government.”(Page 417). Various American Muslims reported to the FBI that Bassnan might be a Saudi intelligence agent. (Page 417).


Bayoumi is also said to have “extensive ties to the Saudi government.”(Page 423). “In a review of telephone toll records, the FBI learned that Bayourni called Saudi Government establishments in the United States almost 100 times”during the month before and the first four months of the two hijackers’ stay in San Diego (Jan.-May, 2000) including “contact with at least three individuals” at Bandar’s Saudi Embassy. (Page 423). He also “was in frequent contact with the Emir at the Saudi Ministry of Defense, responsible for air traffic control.”(Page 423).  “The FBI received numerous reports from individuals in the Muslim community, dating back to 1999, alleging that Bayourni may be a Saudi intelligence officer.”(Page 416).


A 60 Minutes segment about the 28 pages, first broadcast this past April and then rebroadcast in June, measurably increased the pressure on the Obama administration to release the pages. In this segment, former Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the Intelligence Committee that co-authored the 28 pages and spearheaded the movement for declassification,  tells 60 Minutes’Steve Kroft that one reason he believes Bayoumi was a Saudi Intelligence agent is  that “he’d been listed even before 9/11 in FBI files as being a Saudi agent.”

In 1999, an America West flight had to be emergency landed due to two attempts by a Saudi named Qudhadeein to enter the cockpit. This Saudi was on his way to a party at the Saudi Embassy. His airline ticket was paid for by the Saudi Embassy. This Saudi had “connections to terrorism.” The “FBI’s Phoenix office now suspects [this] may have been a ‘dry run’ to test airline security.” (Page 419).

More from the New York Post: “Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego … as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to [Bandar Bush’s] Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.”

The New York Post details Bandar Bush’s itinerary two days after 9-11: In order to urgently evacuate dozens of Saudi officials as well as Osama bin Laden family members from the U.S., “Bandar made the [successful] request for escorts directly to FBI headquarters on Sept. 13, 2001 — just hours after he met with [President George W. Bush when] the two old family friends shared cigars on the Truman Balcony while discussing the attacks.” A news photo taken on Sept. 13 shows Bush and Bandar as well as Cheney and Rice comfortably sitting in wicker chairs on the Truman Balcony of the White House. Literally in broad daylight, these four criminals are basking in the success of the 9-11 operation. Their Global War on Terror could now commence under the guise of self-defense.

The 28 pages identify Abdullah bin Laden, Osama bin Laden’s half-brother, as working for Bandar’s Saudi Embassy (Page 418). Abdullah is said to be “the subject of several FBI investigations” and appears connected to two other hijackers during the run-up to 9-11. (Page 432). “[Abdullah] is the President and Director of the World Arab Muslim Youth Association (WAMY) … According to the FBI, there is reason to believe that WAMY is ‘closely associated with the funding and financing of international terrorist activities and in the past provided support to individuals wishing to fight in the Afghan War.’ WAMY “has possible connections to … Hamas, Algerian extremists, and Philippine militants.” (Page 433).

A former FBI agent in San Diego involved in the investigation of 9-11 told the Senate and House Intelligence Committees that “probably 70-80 percent of the population of Saudi Arabia support Osama Bin Ladin.” (Page 435). The former chief of the CIA’s unit “established in 1996 to focus specifically on Osama Bin Ladin” testified that “it was clear from about 1996 that the Saudi Government would not cooperate with the United States on matters relating to Osarna Bin Ladin.” (Page 438). He cited as an example Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law, who he identified as “an important figure in Al Qaeda.” The U.S. extradited him to Jordan “for his role in a bombing in Jordan.” But the Saudis “bought off” the Jordanians for his return to Saudi Arabia where he now “travels and operates freely.” (Page 439).

“When a high-level officer was asked how the September 11 attacks might have been prevented, he cited greater Saudi cooperation …” (Page 438).

After being stripped of his Ambassadorship in 2005 as a result of 9-11 investigations, what became of Prince Bandar Bush? Did the Saudi government hide him away? No. He was promptly made secretary general of the Saudi National Security Council, his position from 2005 until 2015, and was director general of the Saudi Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014.

According to the Wall Street Journal of Aug. 25, 2013, as director general of the Saudi Intelligence Agency (2012-2014), Bandar was leading the effort to prop up the so-called Syrian rebels. “[I]ntelligence agents from Saudi Arabia, the United States, Jordan and other allied states were working at a secret joint operations center in Jordan to train and arm hand-picked Syrian rebels … Prince Bandar has been jetting from covert command centers near the Syrian front lines … seeking to undermine the Assad regime.”

The evidence is very clear that Bandar’s “hand picked Syrian rebels” include al Nusra (the name for al Qaeda in Syria) as well as ISIS. As 28 pages champion Senator Bob Graham puts it: “Al-Qaeda was a creature of Saudi Arabia; … and now, ISIS is the latest creature! … ISIS is a product of Saudi ideals, Saudi money, and Saudi organizational support.”

“Really what [Bandar’s] doing is he’s reprising a role that he played in the 1980s when he worked with the Reagan administration to arrange money and arms for mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan and also worked with the CIA in Nicaragua to [secretly and illegally] support the [terrorist] Contras,” says Wall Street Journal reporter Adam Entous. “So in many ways this is a very familiar position for Prince Bandar, and it’s amazing to see the extent to which veterans of the CIA were excited to see him come back …”

Bandar’s role in 9-11 is entirely in keeping with his long history of secretly supporting terrorists in coordination with parts of the U.S. Government.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that since being appointed Director of the CIA by  Obama in Jan. 2013, “Mr. Brennan has been in periodic contact by phone with Prince Bandar.” It does well to recognize that from 1996 to 1999, Brennan was CIA Chief of Station in Saudi Arabia, just before he was promoted to Chief of Staff to CIA Director George Tenet.



Brennan is in the thick of the enduring cover-up. Back on May 1, Brennan appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press to warn against release of the 28 pages. “I think some people may seize upon that uncorroborated, UNVETTED information that was in there that was basically just a collation of this information that came out of FBI files, and to point to Saudi involvement, which I think would be very, very inaccurate … I think the 9/11 commission took that joint inquiry and those 28 pages or so and followed through on the investigation. And they came out with a very clear judgment that there was no evidence that indicated that the Saudi government as an institution, or Saudi officials individually, had provided financial support to al Qaeda.” Note his use of the word UNVETTED. According to Collins English Dictionary, this is a word that is used very rarely.

By the month of June, Brennan realized the release of the 28 pages could not be prevented. So on June 12, he did an interview on Saudi-owned Arabiya TV (of all places) and stated:  “So these 28 pages I believe are going to come out and I think it’s good that they come out. People shouldn’t take them as evidence of Saudi complicity in the attacks.” He added: “These so called 28 pages that were part of the joint inquiry that was published in 2002. Just a year after 9/11, was a very preliminary review trying to pull together bits and pieces of information reporting who was responsible for 9/11. Subsequently, the 9/11 commission looked very thoroughly at these allegations of Saudi involvement, Saudi government involvement and their finding, their conclusion was that there was no evidence to indicate that the Saudi government as an institution or Saudi, senior Saudi officials individually had supported the 9/11 attacks.”

Brennan’s statement that the 9/11 commission followed up on the 28 pages “and looked very thoroughly at these allegations of Saudi involvement” is a bold-faced, easily disproven lie.

The originator of this lie is none other than the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow. Zelikow was on the National Security Council during the administration of George H.W. Bush, co-authored a book with Condoleezza Rice during the Clinton years, was appointed to the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board by George W. Bush, and served on that board until 2003 when he became Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission. Another element of Zelikow’s background is that he directed the Aspen Strategy Group (ASG), a group organized “to explore the preeminent foreign policy challenges the United States faces.” Members of ASG have included Condoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz Judith Miller and Prince Bandar bin Sultan.

In 2014, Zelikow told the New Yorker’s Lawrence Wright that the twenty-eight pages were “an agglomeration of preliminary, UNVETTED reports,” merely “wild accusations that needed to be checked out.” Zelikow went on to tell Wright that the 9-11 Commission checked out these accusations and “ultimately” were “unable to prove” any Saudi complicity.

Soon after CBS’s 60 Minutes segment on the 28 pages was broadcast on April 10 (2016), Zelikow appeared on NBC News to describe the 28 pages as “UNVETTED investigative material.”  He added: “The pages provide no further answers about the 9/11 attacks that are not already included in the 9/11 Commission report.” Lost in the hubbub, according to Zelikow, is that there are some far more fundamental questions about the attacks that remain unanswered, such as why the Iranian government “facilitated the transit of al Qaeda members through Iran on their journey to the United States.”

Then on April 22, former governor Tom Kean and former Rep. Lee Hamilton, who served as chairman and vice chairman of the 9/11 Commission issued a statement that included: “The 28 pages were based almost entirely on raw, UNVETTED material that came to the FBI … We deemed vigorously pursuing the congressional panel’s leads so important that we hired the person who drafted the 28 pages to work on our staff, along with the person who had assisted him. They were part of a team … augmented by the Commission’s executive director [that] investigated over the course of 18 months all the leads contained in the 28 pages …” One must wonder how Kean and Hamilton were induced to repeat the lie that the leads in the 28 pages were “vigorously pursued” by the 9-11 Commission.

Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission by Kean and Hamilton was published in 2006. In this book, they state they were “set up to fail” and were starved of funds to do a proper investigation by the Bush administration. They also state they were misled by senior officials in the Pentagon and the FAA; and that this obstruction and deception led them to contemplate referring the matter to the Justice Department for perjury charges. In 2008, the NY Times published an op-ed by Kean and Hamilton titled “Stonewalled by the CIA,” in which they stated that the CIA “obstructed our investigation.”

As shown above, Brennan’s statement about the unvetted 28 pages being properly investigated by the 9-11 Commission was made about 10 days after Zelikow’s and eight days after Kean’s and Hamilton’s. Then one day after Brennan’s statement, Josh Earnest, White House Press Secretary, at a Press Briefing, in response to questions about the 28 pages, stated: Kean and Hamilton “described those 28 pages as UNVETTED, law enforcement investigative materials.  And they said they had an opportunity to review that material, to follow up on leads … [and] they found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution had supported al Qaeda … Director Brennan’s comments are entirely in line with those that were put forward by Governor Kean and Congressman Hamilton … [Y]ou can reliably assume that [the President views] what [Brennan, Kean and Hamilton] have described is an accurate understanding of the contents of those 28 pages.”

They are all reading off the same script — composed by Zelikow. Since the release of the 28 pages, this script has been repeated by mainstream report after report as factual. Take for example the concluding paragraph of the NY Times account published on July 15, the day the pages were released: “The most extensive investigation into the attacks was conducted by the September 11 Commission, which pursued many of the leads presented in the 28 pages. The commission’s final report, released in 2004, said that the panel had found no evidence that the ‘Saudi government as an institution, or senior Saudi officials individually funded’ Al Qaeda.” This is how cover-ups endure.

Kristen Breitweiser lost her husband to the 9/11 attacks. She is joined in the following rectification of the Zelikow script by four additional 9/11 widows:

“First and foremost, here is what you need to know when you listen to any member of our government state that the newly released 28 pages are no smoking gun — THEY ARE LYING … Do not let any person in our government deny the damning reality of the 28 pages. And as you read the 28 pages remember that they were written during 2002 and 2003. President Bush did not want the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia investigated. President Bush has deep ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its royal family and only wanted to protect the Kingdom. President Bush wanted to go to war in Iraq — not Saudi Arabia … It is well documented that the Joint Inquiry received enormous push-back against its investigation into the Saudis.

“Staff Director Philip Zelikow blocked any investigation into the Saudis. Zelikow even went so far as to fire an investigator who had been brought over from the Joint Inquiry to specifically follow-up on the Saudi leads and information uncovered in the Joint Inquiry. I will repeat — the investigator was fired. Look at three items. First, Zelikow blocked and then fired Dana Lesemann when she tried to investigate the uninvestigated leads in the 28 pages … Second, it was only Zelikow and Dieter Snell who were granted access and able to question Omar Bayoumi—a man who stands at the epicenter of the Saudi nexus to the 9/11 attacks … Finally, it was Zelikow and Snell who ‘re-wrote’ the entire Saudi section of the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report — leaving out all the damning, incriminating information.

“Former 9/11 Commissioners John Lehman, Bob Kerrey, and Tim Roemer have all acknowledged that the Saudis were not adequately investigated by the 9/11 Commission. Thus, for any government official to hang their hat on the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report — when Commissioners, themselves, have admitted that the Saudis were not fully investigated, is absurd and disgraceful.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia provided operational and financial support to the 9/11 hijackers. That is a fact. And, the U.S. government has been covering up that fact for fifteen years — even to this very day. And that is a crime.”

More from the New York Post: “Two commission lawyers investigating the Saudi support network for the hijackers complained their boss, executive director Philip Zelikow, blocked them from issuing subpoenas and conducting interviews of Saudi suspects. 9/11 Commission member [and Secretary of the Navy under Reagan] John Lehman was interested in the hijackers’ connections to Bandar, his wife and the Islamic affairs office at the embassy. But every time he tried to get information on that front, he was stonewalled by the White House. ‘They were refusing to declassify anything having to do with Saudi Arabia,’ Lehman was quoted as saying in the book, The Commission.

And from the U.S. edition of The Guardian: “Lehman said in an interview …: ‘Our report should never have been read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia’ … 9/11 Commissioner Tim Roemer of Indiana said … when it comes to the Saudis, ‘we still haven’t gotten to the bottom of what happened on 9/11’ … In fact, there were repeated showdowns, especially over the Saudis, between the staff and the commission’s hard-charging executive director, Philip Zelikow, who joined the Bush administration as a senior adviser to the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, after leaving the commission …

“Zelikow fired a staffer, who had repeatedly protested over limitations on the Saudi investigation, after she obtained a copy of the 28 pages outside of official channels. Other staffers described an angry scene late one night, near the end of the investigation, when two investigators who focused on the Saudi allegations were forced to rush back to the commission’s offices after midnight after learning to their astonishment that some of the most compelling evidence about a Saudi tie to 9/11 was being edited out of the report …

“Lehman and another commissioner, former Democratic senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, filed affidavits last year in support of a lawsuit brought against the Saudi government by the families of 9/11 victims. ‘Significant questions remain unanswered concerning possible involvement of Saudi government institutions and actors,’ Kerrey said. Lehman agreed: ‘Contrary to the argument advocated by the Kingdom, the 9/11 commission did not exonerate Saudi Arabia of culpability for the events of 11 September 2001 or the financing of al-Qaida.’ He said he was ‘deeply troubled’ by the evidence gathered about a hijackers’ support network in California.”



Google “photo of Sept 13, 2001 Truman Balcony.” You will see the four of them – Bush, Bandar, Cheney and Rice – lounging in wicker chairs on the Truman balcony of the White House – two days after 9-11. Do they look worried to you? No they don’t. They look satisfied.

Watch Michael Moore’s Farenheit 911 – it is available for free on youtube. This is a powerful documentary, the most popular of all time.  It becomes all so obvious.

Farenheit 911 came out in 2004. Michael then had the prescience to include reference to the 28 pages and also to focus on the Sept. 13 visit on the Truman Balcony.

Michael gets very specific about the evacuation arranged by Bandar and Bush on Sept. 13. “The White House approved planes to pick up the bin Ladins and numerous other Saudis. At least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and bin Ladins out of the U.S. after September 13th. In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Ladin family were allowed to leave the country.” No questioning of the departing Saudis. Nary a subpoena.

But Michael captures another searing tableau whose import is the same as that on the Truman Balcony. It is the morning of 9/11 in a room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington D.C. Taking place is the annual investor conference of the Carlyle Group, a company heavily invested in defense a/k/a military-industrial-intelligence complex. Prominent among those gathered are Carlyle principals George H.W. Bush and Shafiq bin Laden, who is Osama bin Laden’s half brother. Together they view the collapses of the towers.

Carlyle has made a lot of money as a result of 9-11, beginning almost immediately afterwards.

Americans do not, cannot fathom how ghastly our behavior in the world has been since 9/11. Our Global War on Terror is a holocaust. If Americans fathomed that, they would have no trouble grasping that 9-11 was an inside job, perpetrated by the same forces (domestic and foreign) as are benefiting from our Global War on Terror.

The lowdown is that the Bush crime family is only one illustrative part of a political/economic/cultural system increasingly dominated by our war machine, a corporate-driven monster that does whatever it can get away with to foment more war and more profits. Neither the suffering nor the nationality of the victims matters. Hillary Clinton is its chosen candidate, clearly more aggressive than Obama.

The upshot is that the leaders both in Congress and outside of Congress most behind the release of the 28 pages understand all this, understand what is at stake, understand the urgency.

The military-industrial-intelligence complex is firmly entrenched and has no scruples. Quibbling among ourselves must stop. No more drawn out inquiries and equivocal analyses. We truly are running out of time.

Link to 28 Pages-related 9/11 Commission
Staff Memos released by National Archives

(Following comments made by James McDonald in the “Dark Legacy – JFK and 9-11” facebook group.)

“Bingo! Note the pages in the Congressional Report recommend for review in this staff memo and this: On page 13, it talks about the CIA headquarters getting vital information that if acted on, had the potential to stop the planed attack, but the CIA failed to respond.

On page 31, the report notes that “Neither the CIA nor the FBI were able to confirm if KSM was in the US or sending recruits before 9/11”. As I understand, Marshal points out that this statement means that the story about who attacked us that day was obtained by forced confession alone, and that there’s NO other evidence to validate what the official story claims

On page 153, there’s a communication between the FBI Headquarters and a New York agent. In short, as I understand it, the New York agent is not a happy camper because the SOP of the CIA is going to get Americans killed.

On Page 158, the short story is that Congress wanted to talk to that fellow that’s was a informant with the FBI out in San Diego, that happen to have a couple of the hijackers renting from him. It looks like the FBI was playing defense counsel at one point and needed a lot of legal cover for the guy if he was going to be forced to spill the beans, even though Congress already knew that the dude was full of it, nothing happened about getting the guy on record.

On page 159, the FBI started leaning on their informant where as he let on that he was actually pretty close to the hijackers but “…expressed disbelief that the two were involved].”

On Page 162, the informant uses the Guidelines, as set forth by the Attorney General to say that he had no clue about the two.

On page 163, the San Diego office did get a clue but when Congress asked them about it, they said that the informant was clueless.

One page 164, the FBI guy that had contact with the informant attributed inconsistencies in the informants’ lack of a clue because of the guys’ clueless personality.

After a couple of redacted lines from the same page, the same agent told congress that the informant was “very credible, highly reliable, very, very credible, very useful” and that the informant had been “duped”.

Finally, at the bottom of page 164, Congress has got some serious issues with all of this and thinks the guy might be full of it.

On page 167, headquarters knew about the two, connected to the informant that didn’t have a clue but headquarters kept the San Diego office clueless about the two.”

There’s two reports and regretfully, most Americans are not aware of this. The first one is called the Congressional Report, created right after 9/11. In chapter four from The Big Bamboozle, titled The Joint Congressional Inquiry, Marshall notes, “With all the distractions of terror and war, few Americans realize that in 2002, a Congressional Joint Inquiry was formed to investigate the 9/11 attack. The investigation was an unprecedented act by the U.S. congress. Never before had the two permanent intelligence oversight committees, one from the House and One from the Senate, collaborated on an investigation.” The area where he said that it was an “unprecedented act by the United States Congress” should get people’s attention, it did mine. The 9/11 Commission report was created to cover up the crime.

Alex Jones title for his interview with Steve Pieczenik was more sensationalized than the one I used above. He entitled it as “Govt Insider Confirms Israel’s Role In 9/11 Attacks!” And this is true, but can be taken out of context, just like by only exposing the Saudis and agents from Pakistan. Who wants to leave out the enforcers of the Plan, the Neocons, and those covering up and continuing false wars for terror, not on terror?

INCONTROVERTIBLE – New 9-11 Documentary

Greenfield, MA – Valley 9-11 Truth presents “Incontrovertible,” a Tony Rooke film on Saturday, May 21st in the community room at the Green Fields Market (144 Main Street). Rooke has produced an engrossing 2-hour documentary with the frank and candid views of Police Officers, Firefighters and Soldiers as they express their deep concerns about the official explanation on the events of September 11, 2001. “This film is FOR police officers and firefighters, BY police officers and firefighters” explains film maker, Tony Rooke.

The film follows Mr. Rooke’s refusal to pay a TV license fee because the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11 attacks, he alleged. ‘It is widely known that the BBC reported the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 over 20 minutes before it occurred. WTC 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by a plane on 9/11 but collapsed at free-fall speed later that day.’ This film makes the word incontrovertible unanswerably clear in regards to the official version’s distortion about the crimes of September 11, 2001.

“One of our purposes in showing this film,” said Jonathan Mark, founder for Valley 9-11 Truth and publisher for Flyby News (, “is to engage the audience to join with us in getting the DVD viewed by police and firefighters. Honest people will come to honest conclusions. We have to come to terms with truth, or else more war and suffering will continue.”

“Simply put, this is not just the best film I’ve seen on 911, it’s the best film I have seen all year.”
– Sergeant John Meaders, 32 year ex Californian police officer

“One of the best 911 movies ever made!”
– Kevin Barrett, Truth Jihad Radio

“All family members of a 9/11 victim should watch this film.”
– Matt Campbell, victim family member

“Incontrovertible is technically brilliant”
– Ian Henshall, Author ‘9/11 Revealed’ & ‘9/11 The New Evidence’

“Moving, powerful & informative”
– Niels Harrit, Veteran Truth Campaigner

“Artfully crafted – manages to convince cumulatively that there are still questions to answer”
– Joe Gill – Journalist – Middle East Eye

“Absolutely first rate! The film manages to navigate the broad aspects of 9/11, with all the complexity, and even tie it with 7/7 and JFK, while avoiding the pitfalls of discredited speculative theories. I have no hesitation in sharing this with anyone”
– David Chandler, retired physics teacher.

Activists Stand their Ground, Even As Cassini Sails Safely Away


Cassini Flyby-Activists – article

1) Activists Stand their Ground, Even As Cassini Sails Safely Away
By Daniel Sorid, Staff Writer – SPACE.COM
Aug 18 1999 16:02:21 ET

They saw it as a ball of poison.

Across the world, they yelled and held up banners to protest its flyby of Earth.

They said the craft, careening through space at 42,000 miles per hour, had a good chance of slapping into the Earth’s atmosphere and spreading dangerous radiation throughout the planet.

In protests, on Web sites, in papers, and in speeches, they claimed that thousands, even millions, could die.

No one did.

On early Wednesday morning the Cassini probe, carrying 72 pounds of radioactive fuel, whizzed by Earth — without incident — on its way to Saturn.

But as long as there’s been a Cassini, there have been vocal anti-Cassini activists. For two years, they’ve spoken out on the craft’s plutonium dioxide power, made with the radioactive element used in nuclear weapons. (The plutonium used on Cassini, though, is not weapons-grade.)

Come launch time — in October 1997 — the protesters staked out the Cape Canaveral launch site to try to stop the probe.

The launch went off without a hitch.

And when the craft was on its way back to Earth after spiraling around Venus for a gravity boost, the opponents once again unfurled their banners.

Jonathan Mark was one of the protest leaders. His website, “Stop Cassini Earth Flyby,” was a kind of Protest Central for opponents of the craft.

On it, there are impassioned pleas to stop the mission with headlines like “NASA Misleads the World,” and “The Cassini Gamble.”

There are links to scholarly papers on the risks of the mission to the planet and its inhabitants and to political dispatches decrying the military’s role in space research.

You can sign up for legal action and send off thoughts to world leaders.

And you can view pictures of the worldwide protests: of grandmothers making their voices heard, and Bangladeshis taking a stand.

But now that Cassini passed by safely, was it all for naught?

“Protesting against Cassini wasn’t a mistake,” Mark said. “It’s significant, and I’m glad there wasn’t any accident.”

Mark, who sends his anti-Cassini newsletter to over 1,000 subscribers, still believes that plutonium-powered spacecraft could one day play a role in destroying life on Earth.

“We’re living at a time when human beings don’t have to survive on this planet,” he said. “We can go extinct like the dinosaurs.”

On the other side of the world, the General Secretary of the Bangladesh Astronomical Society had a similar reaction.

“Our calculation was not wrong, because we did not say that it would definitely fall on the Earth during its closest approach with Earth,” F.R. Sarker said. “We were more concerned about the radioactive materials Cassini has been carrying on board.”

NASA, on the other hand, couldn’t resist a little gloating.

“We told you so,” chimed in Mary Beth Murrill, spokeswoman for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, when asked what she would say to the anti-Cassini protesters.

The space agency had said all along that a disaster was extremely unlikely, with a probability of less than one-in-a-million.

Another NASA spokesman, Douglas Isbell, said the protesters’ concerns were legitimate, but that mission scientists had taken extra precautions to prevent an accident.

NASA is planning eight more missions that will rely on the same kind of plutonium power generators used on Cassini, Isbell said.

Radioisotope thermoelectric generators, or RTGs, power Cassini. They are primarily used on missions to the outer solar system, where the sun’s rays are too weak to be a usable source of power.

RTGs rely on the heat produced as plutonium, a radioactive element, decays. A converter changes that heat into electricity, which powers the craft.

The next launch of an RTG-powered craft is scheduled for the end of 2003, the Europa Orbiter, which will study a moon of Jupiter.

Those future launches are keeping protesters from packing up their signs.

“Concern about future plutonium launches is my main concern,” Mark said.

He plans to leave his website up as a reminder of the Cassini protests, though daily updates will probably stop.

And in Bangladesh, the Cassini probe’s success has left a residue of worry.

“It is true, we are lucky as there was no accident with Cassini,” said Sarker, whose group led an anti-Cassini protest march on June 18. “But we are unlucky because this would encourage NASA to launch more space probes in the future with plutonium dioxide until an accident really takes place.”

2) Notes on Bart Jordan’s Commentary

In the commentary, Bart Jordan provided simple equations that gave evidence that ancient cultures, such as the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaean, knew all about Uranium, Neptunium and Plutonium, and why they stayed away from developing certain life endangering isotopes.

The Notes were written by Bart Jordan in response to many queries from the scientific community and from individuals in NASA. URL Source:

3) NoFlyby Advisory Board and Ernest Sternglass

Following is a brief report from Ernest Sternglass on his important work that shows physical evidences from baby teeth of the harm being committed by nuclear pollution.

His work and that of others on the NoFlyby Advisory Board, (with many of these members continuing their work on the Board for the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space) is very special and truly inspirational.

Please keep engaged with these good people and continue to support efforts for peace in space and everywhere else. For the list of those on the NoFlyby advisory board, see: .

Note: Karl Grossman will be speaking at a Rally this Sunday in Brattleboro, VT on the decommissioning of Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant. Dave Dellinger and music with the reggae music of the Black Rebels and other speakers.

Karl Grossman

As NoFlyby settles down, I wish to thank us all for sharing and not allowing Cassini to go unnoticed. Perhaps we can help the military evaluate the strategic advantages of going in another direction, peace in space and responsible technologies to benefit and not threaten life.

Many thanks for your support on the campaign to stop and expose the high risk Cassini Earth flyby.

From: Ernest Sternglass

I agree that we need to find ways for people around the globe to work together on the technology that will allow us to explore the universe and secure the peace on our globe in such a way that it will not endanger the health and survival of our species.

What my colleagues and I in the Radiation and Public Health Project are working on, namely the baby tooth study to be released to the public September 21 (See our web site: can help to achieve this. Our results show that radioactive fission products represented by strontium-90 in the teeth of newborns have been rising alarmingly in areas close to or downwind from nuclear reactors, and that in these same areas breast cancer and childhood cancers have been rising most strongly since the early 1980s despite the fact that all atmospheric bomb tests ended in 1980.

It implies that we have grossly underestimated the leakages from nuclear facilities and the amount of damage bomb fallout and nuclear plant releases have done to human health since the nuclear age began.

By involving people all over the globe in the collection of baby teeth, we can bring this message to millions, and prepare public opinion to respond to the call for the abolition of nuclear weapons and an end to the production of plutonium in nuclear reactors for both weapons and the generation of electricity both on Earth and for the operation of satellites in space.

Bernie Sanders for President – Pardon Peltier

Flyby News
Editor – Jonathan Mark
12 February, 20156 – Bernie Sanders for President – Pardon Peltier

bernie now is the time.jpg

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts
to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against
injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and
crossing each other from a million different centers
of energy and daring, those ripples build a current
which can sweep down the mightiest walls
of oppression and resistance.”

Robert F. Kennedy
Capetown, June 6th 1966

Editor’s Notes: These are extremely exciting times with people loosening their grip to swing with Bernie because he is truly acting in our mutual interests. Yet from my experience and knowing the significance of such a political revolution, with current industries at risk for being significantly impacted, danger is lurking in the shadows.

This reminds me of the direction of the John F. Kennedy’s administration. He was ready to end war, and significantly reduce the role of the intelligence-mafia, CIA (shadow government) military industrial complex.. Files regarding investigations into the 1963 assassination are due to be released in 2017, unless delayed longer by the President. Let’s hope Bernie Sanders opens doorways for truth and reconciliation.

To protect the dream for real change, I suggest Bernie creates an insurance plan by guaranteeing his plan’s success no matter what happens to him in the future. All he has to do is produce and disperse a video or document of his plan to trustworthy friends and colleagues to publish in the event he was no longer with us. He might have to update it time to time, but it could insure our unity.

If you recall when Senator Paul Wellstone died, in the chaos the Republicans took over the Senate. This may be dark to some, but at heart I am an eternal optimist, knowing there is so much we don’t know, and possibilities beyond imagination, miracles each day.

Renown filmmaker, Massimo Mazzucco, who produced September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor, Cancer the Forbidden Cures, and other great documentaries, is now working on a documentary of the fraudulent Apollo Lunar Missions. You can listen to an interview about it with Sean Caron. It now looks more promising than ever that the lunar landings will be exposed as a military psychological operation that never took place in actuality. This will produce an awakening within people to realize the grand deceptions for our whole lifetimes.

Besides the good news of Bernie Sanders’ campaign and the forthcoming Mazzucco film, Flyby News has been active in the campaign to support the Executive Clemency Pardon of Leonard Peltier. We support your contacting the White House for Obama to do this, but if not, let’s also push for a Bernie Sanders’ pardon ASAP, plus his general agenda for health, justice, and peace.

People ask how could he get anything done with our current Congress. When I spoke with Senator Mike Gravel recently, he was delighted with the surge toward democracy with the Sanders’ campaign and is producing a document called “Bernie’s Agenda” that will show how direct democracy could be utilized for succeeding with such a popular and beneficial agenda.

This issue also includes updated Critical News posted at, which is shared on facebook and google. Please study, research, and share this information to help awaken a critical mass of people.

Pardon Leonard Peltier

Pardon Leonard Peltier

Opportunity for Obama, our nation

By Jonathan Mark

Published in Recorder, Greenfield, MA
In print on Saturday, February 6, 2016

Leonard Peltier has been confined in prison for more than 40 years. He was charged with the shooting-death of two FBI agents, Ronald Williams and Jack Coler, in the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. However, the facts around his case show a dismal miscarriage of justice. It looks like the only way Leonard Peltier will be free to go home to friends and family after all this time is by an executive clemency pardon from President Barack Obama.

His prison record has been exemplary, and he has excelled as a human rights and environmental rights activist, a nominee for six Nobel Peace prizes, an acclaimed artist, a mentor, an author, a great-grandfather who is simply a good, humble and wonderful human being.

One could learn more about him from his book, “Prison Writings — My Life Is My Sun Dance.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu stated that it is “A deeply moving and very disturbing story of a gross miscarriage of justice and an eloquent cri de coeur of Native American for redress and to be regarded as human beings with inalienable rights guaranteed under the United States Constitution, like any other citizens. We pray that it does not fall on deaf ears. America owes it to herself.”

A little more than 15 years ago, on International Human Rights Day, Dec. 10, 2000, I joined local activists that chartered two buses from Northampton to join thousands who walked and prayed in the streets of New York City for Truth and Reconciliation. Most everyone there was optimistic about President William Clinton granting Peltier clemency before leaving office.

However, when the Supreme Court chose George Bush Jr. as president, Clinton would no longer have Al Gore to protect him from the threat of criminal prosecution for having lied under oath regarding his affair with an intern. The political pressure at that time was quite intense.

In an unprecedented demonstration, approximately 500 federal agents marched to the White House in protest to keep Leonard Peltier in prison. President Clinton took the easy way out and kept him incarcerated and freed white collar criminal, Marc Rich.

Now that we are approaching another administration’s final hours, many are hopeful that President Obama will grant Peltier an executive clemency.

Peltier was beaten up and almost killed when transferred from one prison to another. His health has declined significantly. Currently, he is headed for surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurism. At 70 years old, many are wondering how much longer he can survive in prison.

Those supporting his freedom over the yeas have included such notable people and organizations as Dr. Helen Caldicott, The Dalai Lama, the late Nelson Mandela, the late Coretta Scott King, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Amnesty International, Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchu, Archbishop Tutu and other parliamentarians, and celebrated persons around the globe.

The only evidence against Peltier was the fact that he was present at the Jumping Bull ranch during the fatal shoot-out. There were more than 30 other individuals there on the day of the shooting, members and nonmembers of the American Indian Movement, (but only AIM members were prosecuted). Peltier is the only person who was convicted, sentenced, and imprisoned. And, today, the U.S. Attorney admits that no one knows who fired the fatal shots.

Judge Gerald Heaney of the Court of Appeals of the Eighth Circuit (who authored the decision denying a new trial), in reviewing withheld evidence and altered facts, has since voiced firm support for Peltier’s release. He also indicated that the FBI had engaged in improper tactics that played a major role in creating the circumstances for the shoot-out. He then sought clemency so justice can truly be served and promote healing with Native Americans and all concerned.

A film narrated by Robert Redford, “Incident At Oglala” documents the events landing Leonard in prison. One can watch and access this film at the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee’s website — keep updated on the campaign.

Concerned persons wishing to support executive clemency by President Obama should urge him to grant this tragically delayed pardon. One way to do this is by calling the White House comment line 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 202-456-1111.

As has often been said the history of our government’s actions with the first citizens of this country has been tragic at best, and oftentimes unconscionable. It is hard to imagine a case more deeply human and spiritually mandated for reconciliation for all nations within our nation and world beyond, than the case of Leonard Peltier.

This following is from a March, 2016 update from International Leonard Peltier Defense:

Leonard Peltier’s clemency application has been filed with the Office of the Pardon Attorney, U.S. Department of Justice.

Some of you may recall that Leonard’s 1993 application for clemency was denied by George W. Bush as one of his last actions as President in 2009. After a required waiting period, Leonard became eligible to re-file. For the past nearly six months, a team has worked on the final version of the application (which is far more involved than just filling out a form).

What does this mean for supporters? Focus on the White House. We have less than a year (roughly 310 days) to convince President Obama to grant clemency to Leonard Peltier.

Please call President Obama for Leonard Peltier: 202-456-1111 or 202-456-1414 every work day. Please also frequently email President Obama:; post a comment on Obama’s Facebook page:; send a tweet to President Obama: @POTUS; and/or write a letter: President Barack Obama, The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500.

If ever there was a time to be very active on Leonard’s behalf it’s now!

1) A Time for Human Rights on Native Ground

A Time for Human Rights on Native Ground

MINNEAPOLIS – In 1977, fresh out of Dartmouth College’s Native American program, I got a job in Fargo, N.D. I worked only blocks from the federal court building, and one day, from my window, I saw a crowd collect near the courtroom entrance. I walked over to see what was happening and spotted a few friends I had grown up with in Wahpeton, N.D.

My political leanings were all surface, consisting mainly of fashion statements. During the 1973 siege at Wounded Knee and the subsequent murderous climate on Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, in which more than 60 Native people and two F.B.I. agents were killed, I had been trying to get good grades.

Now, here were my friends dressed in flamboyant vests, beads and black hats hung with eagle feathers. I, too, wore a hat, a brown Italian fedora, only my feather was a blue macaw’s. On the basis of our hats, rather than any political awareness, I joined the crowd entering the court building and became immediately drawn into the trial of Leonard Peltier.

I changed the hours in my job so that I could sit through the trial and listen carefully until at last the cases were presented. Once I’d heard it all, I was confident that not one scintilla of hard evidence linked Mr. Peltier to the murders of F.B.I. agents Jack Coler and Ronald Williams. When the jury came back with a guilty verdict I remember extreme shock, a surprise so visceral that I jumped up, shouted, and then found myself quietly weeping in the swirl of subsequent chaos. I had, then, no personal connection with Mr. Peltier. I was not persuaded of his innocence, but that was not the point. I was positive that on the basis of what I’d heard in court that there was reasonable doubt as to his guilt and that he should not have been convicted. My horror was for the United States judicial system.

The court system had been influenced, as had I, by the black hats and the feathers and the aura of paranoia. Only to me, these things were attractive. To others, the mood at the back of the courtroom and the drum beating in the street outside were threatening. No one at the time was capable of impartiality, or dedicated to discovering the truth.

Here are a few truths. There is no exact forensic evidence that links the rifle said to have been carried by Mr. Peltier to the weapon that caused the fatal injuries. There was no witness to the shooting of the F.B.I. agents. The young witnesses who placed Mr. Peltier, along with some 30 other people, in the vicinity of the crime scene have since insisted that they were coerced and intimidated by the F.B.I.

Subsequently, it appears that the F.B.I. sought to avenge the murders on the only person who could still be brought to trial after everyone else involved in the fatal episode was acquitted, by withholding and manipulating critical evidence.

During the next few weeks, President Clinton has an opportunity to demonstrate to Native American people and to the world that our country practices some of what it preaches about human rights. By extending clemency to Leonard Peltier, Mr. Clinton could make an enormous gesture of reparation and healing. Mr. Peltier’s release is urged by the European Parliament, Amnesty International, the Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights; by Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Dalai Lama; as well as Canada’s Assembly of First Nations, not to mention Native rights groups and ordinary citizens throughout the United States. As long as Leonard Peltier is imprisoned, our country’s relationship with its Native people is stained by ongoing dishonor, and our own human rights statements are undermined by hypocrisy.

After the Peltier trial, I immersed myself in writing and then motherhood. Having experienced some of the hysteria and hatreds of those times, I was ambivalent about Mr. Peltier and the attendant posturing of other leaders of the American Indian Movement. I was not a knee- jerk defense committee member, although I am a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe, as is Leonard Peltier. But I was haunted because of the high degree of reasonable doubt that existed in the evidence against him. Eventually, I wrote to Leonard Peltier.

He is not a killer and never was. How do I know this? Because of the person he has become. Leonard Peltier lives, physically half-destroyed, in Leavenworth Prison. He is 56 years old, and he has suffered a stroke and a jaw condition that left him in unalleviated pain. Everything has been stripped away from him. He is transparent now; 24 years in prison do that. There is no rage, there is no blame in him. If his life were based upon two murders, he could not have grown, as he has, into a spiritual force, a person of true humility and gentle humor. I believe the only way he could have survived is on the strength of his innocence.

Last summer, I walked my grandfather’s Turtle Mountain land, side- stepping wild prairie roses, flicking off wood ticks, snapping the dry tall stems of sage into a bundle I would wrap and keep through the winter. As I walked, the evening sun blazed beneath a low cloud and lighted all I saw with a shivering golden fire. I felt in that moment the vast blessing of my own freedom, and took out a letter I’d recently received from Leonard. Words are the soul to me, so I neatly folded the letter and buried it, there, in his home ground.

Leonard Peltier has paid a terrible price for all that the American Indian Movement was blamed for during the late 1970’s. While other AIM leaders have trekked to Hollywood, married, remarried, traveled first-class around the world and reaped the rewards of notoriety, Mr. Peltier has paid. He has paid for our nation’s savagery at Wounded Knee in 1890 and 1973, and for the shame of the F.B.I.’s treatment of Pine Ridge people. He has paid for the violence of the AIM “warriors” who trashed government offices, strutted, mugged, brandished weapons and used them. He has paid the debt for whoever actually did commit those murders. He has paid every day for 24 years. He has paid enough.

It is time to let him go home.

Louise Erdrich is the author of the forthcoming novel, “The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse.”

2) Excerpts from Leonard Peltier’s book

Published by St. Martins Press, NYC 1999


The time has come for me to write, to set forth in words my personal testament– not because I’m planning to die, but because I’m planning to live.  This is the twenty-fourth year of my imprisonment for a crime I did not commit. I’m now just over fifty-four years old. I’ve been in here since I was thirty-one. I’ve been told I must live two lifetimes plus seven years before I get out of prison on my scheduled release date in the year 2041.  I don’t think I’ll make it.  I feel like I’ve lived a hundred lifetimes in prison already. And maybe I have. If my imprisonment does nothing more than educate an unknowing and uncaring public about the terrible conditions Native Americans and all indigenous people around the world continue to endure, then my suffering has has had–and continues to have–a purpose.  I know this. My life has a meaning. I believe Wakan Tanka, the Great Mystery of which we are all a part, has shaped each of our lives for a reason. I don’t know what that reason is. Maybe I’ll never know. But you don’t have to know the meaning of life to know that life has a meaning.

I acknowledge my inadequacies as a spokesman and my many imperfections as a human being. And yet, as the Elders taught me, speaking out is my first duty, my first obligation to myself and to my people. To speak your mind and heart is Indian Way.  This book is my own personal testament as best as I’ve been able to set it down under the circumstances. It was written down on a thousand scraps of paper in the eternal half-light of my prison nights. Each page catches my frame of mind–and heart–at some crucial moment. In truth, to a man in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, every moment is crucial.

It was never my intention in this life to become a symbol, a focus for the sufferings of my people. But all of my people are suffering, so I’m in no way special in that regard.  You must understand… I am ordinary. Painfully ordinary. This isn’t modesty. This is fact. Maybe you’re ordinary too. That ordinariness is our bond, you and I. The Creator made us this way. Imperfect. Inadequate. Ordinary.  Be thankful you weren’t cursed with perfection. If you were perfect, there’d be nothing for you to achieve with your life. Imperfection is the source of every action. This is both our curse and our blessing as human beings. Our very imperfection makes a holy life possible.  We’re not supposed to be perfect. We’re supposed to be useful.


[page 114]

Someday the true reasons for their ill-conceived assault, what really was going on, will come out. The answer or answers, if they haven’t already been shredded, may lie in those 6,000+ FBI documents they admit having withheld to this day, both from us and from the American public, on grounds of “national security.” Lately, I understand, they claim those documents have been “lost.” Certainly it was no accident that the day before the gunfight at Oglala, the head of the nontraditional tribal government was signing over to the federal government one-eighth of the Pine Ridge reservation, an area reputedly rich in uranium deposits.

Many of us believe that the shoot-out at Oglala was specifically intended as a diversion to conceal that illegal deal, which wasn’t revealed to the public for nearly a year. The public furor over the death of the two agents also scotched a planned Congressional investigation of what had happened at Wounded Knee Two in 1973 and the subsequent Reign of Terror on Pine Ridge that led to the Oglala firefight on June 26, 1975.

The FBI’s later assertion that we ambushed its agents makes no sense. We had women cooking, kids playing outside, all of our belongings, clothing and personal items left behind. In fact, we now know (again, through the Freedom of Information Act) that one month prior to the firefight at Oglala, the FBI had issued an internal memo concerning “paramilitary law-enforcement operations” on the reservation. They had obviously long been gearing up for such an assault against us. And they just as obviously bungled it terribly, to their own subsequent grief as well as ours.

I can understand how the FBI hallows its own. To them, Coler and Willams are fallen comrades, heroes, tragic victims, martyrs. Yes, that I also understand. But we, too, hallow our own. We, too, have our fallen comrades, our heroes, our tragic victims, our martyrs…and we have them in countless numbers. I live with the wail of their voices in my inner ear. I hear them always. I can’t forget them. I refuse to forget them.

They are victims of the energy wars, as were agents Coler and Williams, as am I. And so are you, my friend, and your children and your children’s children. The FBI itself is a victim of the energy wars, having strayed far beyonds the bounds of legality and human decency in its misguided eagerness to serve the interests of the multinational invaders in their continuing assault upon the Mother Earth. All these things are acts of war against the Lakota people, against all Indian people, against all indigenous people everywhere, against all humanity. We must continue to oppose these forces of destruction with every fiber of our being, with every breath we take.

[page 172]

My defense committee and supporters have been pushing for many years for a congressional hearing on my entire case, and I’m told that there’s real hope for this in the near future. Scores of U.S. congressmen and Senators have given me their open support. But even a congressional hearing – no matter how revealing – will not in and of itself set me free. Only people of goodwill in the U.S. government, and in particular the president himself, can do that. I await their–and your–consideration and compassion.

I am an Indian man. My simple request is to live like one.

We Are Not Separate

We are not separate beings, you and I.
We are different strands of the same Being.

You are me and I am you
and we aer they and they are us.

This is how we’re meant to be,
each of us one,
each of us all.

You reach out across the void of Otherness to me
and you touch your own soul!


Let us forgive the worst among us
because the worst is in ourselves,
the worst lives in each of us,
along with the best.

Let us forgive the worst
in each of us
and all of us
so that the best
in each of us
and all of us
may be free.

The Message

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.

Let who you are ring out and resonate
in every word and every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There’s no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.

What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.

You are the message.
