Citizens' Arrest in the Works?

Kevin Barrett, Mujca coordinator

The head of the terrorist organization suspected of planning the attacks of September 11th, 2001 will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee this Tuesday, October 11th at 6:30 p.m., risking a citizens' arrest for 9/11 crimes against humanity. The terrorist chief will also be verbally pilloried by outraged citizens on the Ben Merens show Monday at 3 p.m. on Wisconsin Public Radio:

The speaker, Gary Schmitt, is the Executive Director of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), a radical rightwing think tank that called for a "New Pearl Harbor" in September, 2000--and got one on September 11th, 2001.

In its document "Rebuilding America's Defenses" published in September 2000, PNAC called for massive military budget increases, a policy of pre-emptive war including using Saddam Hussein as an excuse to invade the Iraqi oil fields, and stepped-up intervention around the world and especially in the Middle East--but noted that these goals would be extremely difficult to accomplish with alacrity "absent some galvanizing event like a new Pearl Harbor."

When PNAC members and associates including Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, and Wolfowitz took power in January 2000, they immediately committed to an invasion of Iraq--an invasion that would have been not only politically impossible but literally unthinkable without 9/11, which too-conveniently arrived eight months later. According to former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, the Bush Administration was so obsessed with its planned Iraq invasion from the moment it took power in January, 2000, that they had no time for any other issues. Then in July, 2001, after the Taliban pipeline deal fell through, they committed to invading Afghanistan in the fall--which also would have been impossible without 9/11.

A growing list of ex-administration officials, historians, philosophers, politicians and others have been calling attention to the overwhelming evidence that 9/11 was an inside job--that the US Air Force stood down, the Twin Towers and WTC-7 were destroyed in controlled demolitions, the "hijackers" (who are not even Muslim, much less extremists) are still alive, the story of the Pentagon strike is ludicrous, flight 93 was shot down and the "heroic passengers say let's roll" story is a myth, many FBI agents had specific foreknowledge of the date and target of the attacks months in advance, the alleged Commander-in-Chief was left in a pre-announced location for more than an hour during an alleged surprise attack while thousands of potentially hijacked planes were still in the skies...the list of prima facie smoking guns is too long to list here, and not one of them has yet been refuted by anyone, least of all the 9/11 Coverup Commission led by neocon Bush associate Philip Zelikow. (For an irrefutable debunking of the 9/11 Commission Report, see David Griffin's The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions.)

Prominent Americans who have called 9/11 a probable inside job include former Republican cabinet members Catherine Austin Fitts, Morgan Reynolds, and Paul Craig Roberts; historical writer and essayist Gore Vidal; and noted philosopher-theologian David Griffin. Among the many other supporters of the 9/11 truth movement are: Ralph Nader, David Cobb, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Ray McGovern, Jim Hightower, Howard Zinn, the Green Party, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, British ex-Environment Minister Michael Meecher, and the late Senator Paul Wellstone. The must-see three-part BBC Documentary, "The Power of Nightmares," puts it bluntly: "Al-Qaeda is a (neocon) myth."See:,00.html

A top-secret anti-terror squad called Flush Pee-NAC is contemplating performing a citizen's arrest on Schmitt. Supporters are urged to arrive early, take front row seats, and come heavily-armed with tar, feathers, and rotten vegetables.
