“Still, we continue to face a terrorist threat. We cannot erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm. That was the case before 9/11, and that remains true today. That’s why we must remain vigilant as threats emerge. At this moment, the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa, where radical groups exploit grievances for their own gain. And one of those groups is ISIL — which calls itself the “Islamic State.”
-US President Barrack Obama from his September 10 speech to the nation.

Thirteen years after September 11, 2001, the 9/11 Truth movement has become a major phenomenon.
There are now over 2,250 professional architects and engineers who have acknowledged flaws in the official explanation of what caused the World Trade Center Towers to collapse.
A poll from last year found that nearly 50% of Americans exposed to footage of the collapsing World Trade Center Towers suspect they were brought down by controlled demolition.
Two years ago, the documentary “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out
” aired on PBS and ranked among the top three most watched programs on the station, and the most shared on the internet.
On September 8, 2013, the popular Russia Today broadcast, The Truth Seeker, aired a thirteen minute newscast critical of the official explanation of 9/11. The broadcast was starting to go viral on You Tube before Youtube statistics suspiciously flat-lined.
The 9/11 Truth movement is becoming increasingly visible as RETHINK 911 anniversary events in New York City and around the world are becoming increasingly impossible to ignore.
Meanwhile, US President Barrack Obama on the eve of the anniversary announces his plans to launch military assaults in Iraq and Syria in order to destroy the terrorist menace with virtually no significant resistance.
The 9/11 Consensus Panel put out a press release in recent days announcing new points of concensus relating to the 9/11 airliner black boxes found at the World Trade Center site, standard protocols that were not followed in the instance of a hijacking, and incriminating statements from former New York City Mayor Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
The Truth movement may be growing, but there seems to be no noticeable changes in the political landscape as a result.
On the week marking the thirteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we get thirteenth anniversary retrospectives on 9/11 from two people very much at the forefront of the efforts to challenge the official account of the tragedy. They address the efforts to investigate 9/11 using recently revealed but rarely seen on-line documents, the obstacles to 9/11 Truth making a breakthrough in the political arena, the role of groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS/ISIL as US strategic assets, and concerns forming around a new State directed investigation.
Elizabeth Woodworth is a retired health Sciences Librarian and researcher. She is coordinator and co-founder of the 9/11 Concensus Panel.
Michel Chossudovsky is the Director and Founder of the Centre for Research On Globalization, an Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa and author of “America’s War On Terrorism.” He was one of the first people in the world to publicly question the 9/11 narrative, specifically the claim that it was necessary to wage a “War on Terrorism” in order to contain and control Al Qaeda.
A complete digest of 9/11 related articles is available on the Global Research site.
The crisis in Ukraine was discussed in depth during a special public forum held the evening of June 18 at the Ukrainian Labour Temple in Downtown Winnipeg. Speakers Professor Ray Silvius, economist Alan Freeman, and Professor Radhika Desai provide a fact-based look at the forces at work, the evolving situation in Ukraine and what Canada’s role should be in mitigating the tesions.
Global Research News Hour - Iraq and Syria in the Crosshairs of US-NATO Sponsored Terrorism - 06/23/14
A Speech by Guy Mcpherson. The Global Research News Hour Episode 70
This month marks the 10th anniversary of the UN’s military occupation of Haiti. This Global Research News Hour was first published March 6, 2013.
Coup D’Etat in Haiti
It was nine years ago, on February 29, 2004 that the democratically elected President of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide was removed from his Presidential Palace by US forces, assisted by Canada and France. In his place an unelected government was installed by the international community.
Thousands of UN ‘peace-keepers’ were assigned to Haiti to protect and enforce the authority of this new government. Many representatives of the Haitian government were jailed. The government of Gerard Latortue,installed at the behest of international forces, cracked down hard on the poverty-stricken population, particularly in the slums of Cité Soleil and Bel Air in Port-au-Prince. Thousands of deaths were estimated to have resulted. 
It is critical to understand this background and the subsequent erosion of domestic institutions and government agencies if one is to understand the current human security issues threatening this small Caribbean island country.
It is especially important for Canadians to acquaint themselves with this history. Canadians generally have a positive opinion of their country and role in the world. They are inclined to believe Canada’s role in Haiti has been generally beneficent. Such inaccurate perceptions are aided and abetted by compliant politicians, governing and in opposition, and by a silent media.
Roger Annis has been a long-time activist with the Canada-Haiti Action group, an organization that has been at the forefront of raising awareness about Canada’s true role in Haiti. The Global Research Hour spoke to him while he was in Winnipeg to discuss the nine year old coup, Canada’s role in the coup and other ways the Canadian government and Canadian NGOs and development agencies have undermined Haitian democracy and human rights. Annis also draws parallels between Canada’s treatment of Haitians, and its treatment of its own Indigenous population.
Tar Sands Alberta: The Bitumen Cliff
While opposition to the so-called ‘tar sands’ in Northern Alberta in Canada is generally framed as an environment versus economics debate, a new study from the Polaris Institute and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives seems to point to an argument that surprisingly reveals the (black) gold rush for bitumen in Western Canada actually putting the Canadian economy at a tremendous disadvantage. Carleton University Graduate student and report co-author Brendan Hayley speaks to the Global Research News Hour about Canada’s Bitumen Cliff.
America’s first African American President: An Obstacle to the Quest for Positive Change and Racial Equality
In this exclusive Black History Month interview for the Global Research News Hour, former Georgia Congresswoman and US Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney talks about how America’s first African American President has been an obstacle rather than an asset in the quest for positive change and racial equality, and about what needs to be done to make substantive rather than cosmetic changes in the US political life.
