Blasts From The Past.....News Stories You Shouldn't Forget!

You probably missed this story in mainstream media (mainly because it was never there) but this is definitely one that you shouldn't forget! Sort of makes anybody who actually BELIEVED that the WTC came down by the hand of Bin Laden, wonder who was REALLY behind it. If you don't already at least have some idea, ya better ask somebody!

No Hard Evidence Connecting Bin Laden to 9/11

Researched by Morgan Ulery

Osama bin Ladin’s role in the events of September 11, 2001 is not mentioned on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” notice. Go to:
Five years later Rex Tomb, chief of investigative publicity for the FBI explains, “The reason 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11… He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11.” Among many questions, author Ed Haas starts with, “If the U.S. government does not have enough hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11, how is it possible that it had enough evidence to invade Afghanistan?”

New Jersey OKs 200 Contaminated School Sites

Reviewed by: Sandra Karnes

New Jersey government turns a blind eye to building schools on radioactive sites. A scheme to purchase land and build a high school on the highly contaminated former Manhattan Project site was not vetoed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Instead, the former uranium processing facility is one of as many as 200 contaminated sites that have been expedited for school construction under a secret “Memorandum of Understanding” between the DEP and the state’s Schools Construction Corporation (SCC). State officials have refused to disclose the list of all known contaminated school sites purchased by the SCC and reviewed by DEP under the Memorandum of Understanding agreement. The $8 billion program is one of the nations largest public works program.

Pentagon’s Database on Children

Reviewed by Charlene Jones

A $70.5 million database of over 30 million children and young adults is being used by the Pentagon for recruiting purposes. Parents cannot remove their children’s names from the database. The No Child Left Behind Act requires schools to report data of children in secondary schools to military recruiters. The Pentagon purchases information supplied by private corporations, including General Motors and Hooked on Phonics.

KBR’s Gulf Coast Slaves

Reviewed by Lauren Powell

Authorities are keeping Katrina relief workers ill-informed and unprotected from the health risks of what has been described as a cesspool of toxic chemicals. No government regulations for Katrina responders exist. KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, holds the main contract for Katrina relief work, and while the company maintains it operates legally, hundreds of undocumented immigrants have been hired. Many have been denied promised wages, food and shelter. A period of relaxed labor standards following Katrina created lasting conditions for abuse of workers.

Halliburton to build domestic detention facilities

Reviewed by Bailey Malone

As the UN demands closure of KBR-built Guantanamo facilities, the Halliburton subsidiary was awarded a $385 million, five-year contract from DHS’s US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to build detention facilities within the US. The facilities would house an emergency influx of immigrants, or “support the rapid development of new programs.”
