Dear Readers, this is my quarterly request for donations. This is your site, and it will continue as long as you support it. Raising unsettling questions and providing disturbing explanations seldom meet with accolades. For example, Guy McPherson is a University of Arizona scientist who has been studying human disruption of the environment and climate... Read More

In an exclusive interview, the Senator who led inquiry into attack says Obama’s plan to confront Sunni jihadis repeats past mistakes
The rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has been aided by the continuing failure of the US Government to investigate the role of Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks and its support of jihadi movements such as al-Qaeda in the years since, says former Senator Bob Graham, the co-chairman of...

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used... Read More
2014 is shaping up as a year of reckoning for the United States. Two pressures are building on the US dollar. One pressure comes from the Federal Reserve’s declining ability to rig the price of gold as Western gold supplies shrivel and market knowledge of the Fed’s illegal price rigging spreads. The evidence of massive... Read More

Criminals leave signatures. There is consistency in their motives, methods, alibis and techniques. A detective from the Spanish National Police said that investigators knew within minutes of reaching the mangled remains of commuter trains in Madrid where almost 200 commuters were killed that the Basque terrorist group ETA had not carried out the attack- a...

The interview below with Osama bin Laden was conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper, Ummat and published on September 28, 2001, 17 days after the alleged, but unsubstantiated, al Qaeda attack of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center twin towers and Pentagon. The interview was sensational. The alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said... Read More

The article below was written for the Journal of 9/11 Studies for the eleventh anniversary of September 11, 2001, the day that terminated accountable government and American liberty. It is posted here with the agreement of the editors. In order to understand the improbability of the government’s explanation of 9/11, it is not necessary to... Read More
Three days before Christmas a New York Federal Judge George Daniels signed a default judgment that found Iran, the Taliban, and al-Qaeda responsible for 9/11. The judgment was the end result of a ten year judicial process in which family members of victims of the attacks have been seeking $100 billion from those held responsible.... Read More
We Americans become like the moribund Hapsburg Empire which was said to have forgotten nothing and learned nothing. Watching 9/11 commemorations, which have by now become an annual religious-political event, reminds us of this old adage. One of the biggest tragedies within the tragedy of 9/11 is that the nation has not learned the real... Read More
In the US on September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of 9/11, politicians and their presstitute media presented Americans with “A Day of Remembrance,” a propaganda exercise that hardened the 9/11 lies into dogma. Meanwhile, in Toronto, Canada, at Ryerson University the four-day International Hearings on the Events of September 11, 2001, came to a... Read More
9/11: a date between 9/10 and 9/12
"What will you do to commemorate 9/11? The 'I Will' campaign has thrown out the question and people from around the country, including a few celebrities, have answered." That's from the news website The Inquisitr [sic]. I'm pretty sure I don't count as a celebrity to anyone but my dog. With the tenth anniversary of... Read More
CounterPunch Diary
We’re homing in on the tenth anniversary of the destruction of the Wall Street Trade Towers and the attack on the Pentagon. One in seven Americans and one in four among those aged 16-24, (so a recent poll commissioned by the BBC tells us) believe that there was a vast conspiracy in which the U.S.... Read More
In a few days it will be the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. How well has the US government’s official account of the event held up over the decade? Not very well. The chairman, vice chairman, and senior legal counsel of the 9/11 Commission wrote books partially disassociating themselves from the commission’s report. They... Read More
Recently I had lunch in a Delhi restaurant with one of our Indian readers, the philosopher and a sayid (that is a descendent of the Prophet) Professor Syed Zaidi. Zaidi was concerned with the 9/11 movement and with its investigations that apparently indicated involvement of some high-placed Jews. Even more he was concerned with the... Read More
On Sept. 7, National Public Radio reported that Muslims in the Middle East were beginning to believe that the 9-11 attacks on the WTC and Pentagon were false flag operations committed by some part of the U.S. and/ or Israeli government. It was beyond the imagination of the NPR reporter and producer that there could... Read More
Coming in From the Cold
In this special report we print a carefully reported narrative by Christopher Ketcham. He's a journalist whom publications such as Harper's and Salon.com have been happy to publish. Indeed, it was in May of 2002 that Salon featured on its site a 9,000-word story by Ketcham on the so-called Israeli "art students" whose curious activities... Read More

The Age of Irrationality
Where was the American left in the campaign that ended in recapture of both houses of Congress by the Democrats on November 7, 2006? Was it in the streets, fomenting opposition to the war in Iraq? Not at all. The antiwar movement has been inert for months. When I was asked to give the keynote... Read More
A Regression in Consciousness
The world is in tumult, but here in the heart of Empire the level of creative political energy runs flat along the bottom of the graph. As Iraq disintegrates amid frightful slaughter, US generals propose to bring to life the mad plan they once ascribed to Saddam Hussein, to dig a defensive ditch round Baghdad,... Read More
The anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. are by now a national religious rite. Amid tearful remembrances, Americans are asking themselves if they are safer and if they are winning what President George Bush calls the "war on terrorism." The war proclaimed by Bush in 2001 continues without relent, and with... Read More
How They Let the Guilty Parties of 9/11 Slip Off the Hook
You trip over one fundamental idiocy of the 9/11 conspiracy nuts -- -- the ones who say Bush and Cheney masterminded the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon -- in the first paragraph of the opening page of the book by one of their high priests, David Ray Griffin, The New Pearl...

Karmilowicz's Story
A former State Department security officer has given CounterPunch a detailed memoir and documents that point to very curious conduct by the CIA, Secret Service and FBI in the Philippines following warnings of an assassination bid on President Clinton during his November 12/13, 1994 visit to Manila. The bid was organized by the 1993 WTC... Read More
Supreme Indifference
The Supreme Court this week refused to interfere with the prosecution of Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person charged in connection to the 9-11 attacks. The court's rebuff of Moussaoui's appeal remands his case to 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and deprives him of his 6th amendment rights. When Moussaoui's case resumes, he will be barred... Read More
"Intelligence Matters"
Senator Bob Graham's new book, "Intelligence Matters" is a political tsunami. Along with many unexplored allegations concerning both 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan, Graham creates an important link between the Bush Administration and the attacks of Sept. 11. This connection, in fact, corroborates the suspicions of many Americans who have studied 9-11 and believe... Read More
The 9/11 Whitewash
It takes a lot of whitewash to cover over the murder of 3,000 Americans, but that’s what you get when you appoint a “hand-picked” panel to investigate a tragedy like 9-11. The great virtue of selecting each member on an investigative team, (like the Bush Administration did) is that the results are assured before the... Read More
The Price Of Pansyhood
A few unorganized thoughts regarding the events in New York:(1) We lost. Our moral posturing about our degradation is merely embarrassing. We have been made fools of, expertly and calculatedly, in the greatest military defeat the country has suffered since we fled from Viet Nam. The Moslem world is laughing and dancing in the streets.... Read More
