Defense Department Releases September 11 Pentagon Video to Judicial Watch 
Here's the video over at Judicial watch. If you click on the video players they will take you to You Tube, where you can enlarge the players for a more detailed view.

I have never been one to subscribe to the "missile hit the Pentagon" theories bandied about the Internet, but this video does more to raise my suspicions than allay them. And despite media claims that the video shows "American Airlines Flight 77 crashing into the military headquarters building" it really does nothing of the sort. It shows something hitting the Pentagon, but I couldn't swear in court that it was a plane.

Actually, what makes me more suspicious than anything else about the fate of Flight 77 is that Bush Cabal mouthpiece Ted Olson was the only person who supposedly received a phone call from the plane. How convenient.

Here's an informative essay on Olson's supposed phone call and its subsequent impact on the media.

Please take a look and see if you recognize anything (the notes are very distinctive). It's been two years since Brian was murdered and the charade has gone on long enough. This case has been mishandle from the beginning and I think it is clear that the only way it will get solved is by community action. You are the community. Take action.

A Yale University historian discovered a 1918 letter that raises anew questions about a secretive Yale student society and the remains of the American Indian leader Geronimo.

Its most enduring story concerns Geronimo, who died in 1909. According to lore, members of Skull and Bones - including the president's grandfather, Prescott Bush - dug up his grave when a group of Army volunteers from Yale were stationed at the fort during World War I.

Of course, there is a contract involved. An excerpt:

(3) If the Holy Grail manifests itself as a cup or a chalice or a bowl or some other kind of vessel for holding liquid, it is hereby agreed that:

(i) The Grail Stakeholder will be allowed one sip from the vessel of a beverage of the Grail Stakeholder's choosing, which beverage to be provided by the Grail Stakeholder at the Grail Stakeholder's sole expense. The Grail Stakeholder may thereby gain eternal life and the healing of all physical ailments. However, because the Grail Finders cannot be held responsible for the mysterious powers of the Grail and all that, the Grail Finders shall not be held responsible for any failure on the part of the Holy Grail to give eternal life to the Grail Stakeholder, or to alleviate physical ailments, and the Grail Stakeholder hereby warrants to make no claims of any kind against the Grail Finders in the event of such failure.
