Bush Could Seize Absolute
Control of U.S. Government
Publisher, Capitol Hill Blue
Jan 13, 2006, 07:42

President George W. Bush has signed executive
orders giving him sole authority to impose martial
law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the Posse
Comitatus Act that prohibits deployment of U.S.
troops on American streets. This would give him
absolute dictatorial power over the government
with no checks and balances.

NEW: Book: "Without Precedent"
Sept. 11 panel considered
Pentagon probe

Authors, panel’s chairmen,
offer behind-the-scenes look at
terror response

The Sept. 11 commission was so frustrated
with repeated misstatements by the Pentagon
and FAA about their response to the 2001 terror
attacks that it considered an investigation into
possible deception, the panel’s chairmen say
in a new book.



NEW: 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes

How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could
it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists
claim? Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released
tapes from the control room of NORAD's Northeast
headquarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic
military history of that day—and the Pentagon's
apparent attempt to cover it up. exclusive:




NEW: Tapes Disclose Confusion Within
the Military on Sept. 11

Newly disclosed tapes offer evidence of the widespread
confusion within the military as the Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks were being carried out, further
undermining claims by the Pentagon that it moved
quickly to try to intercept and shoot down one or more
of the hijacked jets.




NEW: A Skeptic on 9/11 Prompts Questions
on Academic Freedom


Mr. Barrett, 47, described how some news orgainzations
(the French daily newspaper Figaro and Radio France
International, in fact) had reported that an agent from
the Central Intelligence Agency visited with Osama bin
Laden two months before the attacks. He also said fires
could not have caused the collapse of the World Trade
Center towers at free-fall speed, as reported by the
special Sept. 11 commission.




9/11 pollution 'could cause more
deaths than attack'

By Geoffrey Lean, Environment Editor
12 September 2004

Up to 400,000 New Yorkers breathed in the
most toxic polluting cloud ever recorded after
the twin towers were brought down three
years ago, but no proper effort has been made
to find out how their health has been affected,
according to an official report.





9/11 Commission Gets Tough

October 21, 2003
AFTER TRYING since May to get documents
from the Federal Aviation Administration, the
independent commission that is investigating
the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks took the unusual
step of subpoenaing the records. The commission
didn't cry obstructionism, but it came close. The data
the commission seeks deal with the critical 29
minutes between the time the FAA knew the
commercial flight that eventually hit the Pentagon
had been diverted and notification of the North
American air defense command. Details were not
forthcoming, but apparently the FAA isn't the
only agency dragging its feet.





9/11 Chair: Attack Was Preventable
NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2003

For the first time, the chairman of the independent
commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks
is saying publicly that 9/11 could have and should
have been prevented, reports CBS News Correspondent
Randall Pinkston. "This is a very, very important part
of history and we've got to tell it right," said Thomas Kean.




Art Work Causes Fury at LAX

by Jennifer Oldham

A provocative, 150-foot-long tapestry on display
at Los Angeles International Airport has touched
off a Janet Jackson-style debate about what kind
of art is appropriate in public places. The canvas
tapestry, created by a collective of 115 Latino,
Chicano and African American artists in the
weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks,
was unveiled Jan. 23 in a plexiglass display case
lining a ramp that leads arriving passengers out
of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.




Lawyers try to gag FBI worker
over 9/11

By Andrew Buncombe in Washington
26 April 2004

The Bush administration will seek to prevent a
former FBI translator from providing evidence
about 11 September intelligence failures to a
group of relatives and survivors who have accused
international banks and officials of aiding al-Qa'ida.




Bush and Cheney Talk Strongly of
Qaeda Links With Hussein

June 17, 2004

President Bush and Vice President Cheney
said yesterday that they remain convinced
that Saddam Hussein's government had a long
history of ties to Al Qaeda, a day after the
commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks
reported that its review of classified intelligence
found no evidence of a "collaborative relationship"
that linked Iraq to the terrorist organization.

Mr. Bush, responding to a reporter's question
about the report after a White House Cabinet
meeting yesterday morning, said: "The reason
I keep insisting that there was a relationship
between Iraq and Saddam and Al Qaeda" is
"because there was a relationship between
Iraq and Al Qaeda."




9/11 Panel Rejects White House
Limits on Interviews

March 3, 2004


WASHINGTON, March 2 — The independent
commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks
is refusing to accept strict conditions from the
White House for interviews with President Bush
and Vice President Dick Cheney and is renewing
its request that Mr. Bush's national security adviser
testify in public, commission
members said Tuesday.




Bush and Cheney Try to Rewrite History

When the commission studying the 9/11 terrorist
attacks refuted the Bush administration's claims of
a connection between Saddam Hussein and Osama
bin Laden, we suggested that President Bush apologize
for using these claims to help win Americans' support
for the invasion of Iraq. We did not really expect that
to happen. But we were surprised by the depth and
ferocity of the administration's capacity for denial.
President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have
not only brushed aside the panel's findings and questioned
its expertise, but they are also trying to rewrite history.




The Bush Administration "Is Clearly
Obstructing the Investigation of 9/11"

Reported by Katherine Yurica

Several newspapers reported on October 21, 2003 that
the 9/11 Commission had reached a level of frustration
with the Bush Administration’s refusal to supply
documents requested by the commission. The foot
dragging of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
caused the commissioners to vote unanimously to
subpoena records from the agency. According to a
news report from GoMemphis,




The President's Testimony

April 29, 2004

It would have been a pleasure to be able to
congratulate President Bush on his openness
in agreeing to sit down today with the independent
commission on the 9/11 attacks and answer
questions. Unfortunately, Mr. Bush conditioned
his cooperation on stipulations that range from
the questionable to the ridiculous. The strangest
of the president's conditions is that he will testify
only in concert with Vice President Dick Cheney.
The White House has given no sensible reason
for why Mr. Bush is unwilling to appear alone.
(When asked at his recent press conference, the
president gave one of his patented nonresponses:
"Because it's a good chance for both of us to
answer questions that the 9/11 commission is
looking forward to asking us, and I'm looking
forward to answering them.")





Claim vs. Fact: Rice's Q&A Testimony
Before the 9/11 Commission

April 8, 2004

Planes as Weapons

CLAIM: "I do not remember any reports to us, a
kind of strategic warning, that planes might be
used as weapons." [responding to Kean]

FACT: Condoleezza Rice was the top National
Security official with President Bush at the
July 2001 G-8 summit in Genoa. There, "U.S.
officials were warned that Islamic terrorists
might attempt to crash an airliner" into the
summit, prompting officials to "close the
airspace over Genoa and station antiaircraft
guns at the city's airport."
