Former US Vice President Dick Cheney predicted the next terrorist attack in the United States within the next decade. He said it will be "far deadlier" than the September 11, 2001 attacks, because the threat might come from a nuclear device.
The Justice Department is reconvening a committee to continue addressing domestic terrorism threats after it ceased to exist in the wake of 9/11 tragedy, which immediately shifted the Justice department focus on to international terrorism.
One of the most marginalized groups after the events of 9/11 were the scientists and the engineers who could actually prove the fallacy of the official version of those events. From false arrests to demonization, to outright murder after 9/11, there was an unprecedented campaign to silence anyone who went against the official version of those events. The evidence pointing to US Government involvement at the highest levels is wide-ranging, well-documented and proven, yet no investigation is allowed to be carried out and no official has or will be found guilty of one of the worst single acts of homicide in the history of mankind.
As he ponders leaving some troops in Afghanistan after longest US war, Barack Obama harkens back to the September 11, 2001 attacks to justify more than a decade of sacrifice.Whether the US president is also using that imagery to justify longer US military involvement in Afghanistan, senior political aides will not say. But Obama, in a surprise visit to Bagram Airfield outside Kabul on Sunday, did not sound like a man about to wash his hands of Afghanistan.

The conditions of confinement at the US military prison in Cuba are the latest roadblock in the US death-penalty trial of Yemeni citizen Ramzi bin al Shibh and four other men who had allegedly planned the 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
Suleiman Abu Ghaith, one of Osama bin Laden's sons-in-law, was found guilty of terrorism-related charges by a federal jury in New York on Wednesday, following a three-week trial that offered an unusually intimate portrait of al-Qaeda's former leader in the days after September 11, 2001. Abu Ghaith, 48, faces life in prison after a jury convicted him of conspiring to kill Americans, conspiring to provide material support for terrorists, and providing such support.
A US judge blocked America's most high-profile terror detainee on Tuesday from testifying in a New York courtroom to defend Osama bin Laden's son-in-law.
US prosecutors on Monday asked a New York judge to prevent America's most high-profile terror detainee from testifying to defend Osama bin Laden's son-in-law. The government made the request to Judge Lewis Kaplan in a memorandum filed to the federal court in New York's southern district.
House of Representative Walter Jones, a Republican representing North Carolina, is urging for Obama to declassify secret pages of a 9/11 report. He introduced a resolution requesting for the 28 pages of the joint House and Senate Intelligence Committee report, including data on foreign governments’ participation in terrorist attacks in America, to be declassified. There has been speculation that Saudi Arabia has played some kind of role in 9/11 and perhaps by declassifying the papers, more could be understood.
Jurors at the terrorism trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law watched him threaten there would be no end to the "storm of airplanes" on videotapes made in the days after the September 11 attacks Monday just before a British man testified by video from London that he trained to blow up a plane in late 2001 with a shoe bomb.

The footage, in which a huge plume of smoke is seen stretching from the site of the devastated World Trade Centre towers, was captured from the International Space Station by astronaut Frank Culbertson.
"In order to avoid another failure one has to establish a very solid infrastructure of counter terrorism. I think they were doing much better since 9/11 because they learnt some of the lessons, but it doesn’t guarantee 100% the prevention of every terrorist incident. But I think the US is better equipped to intercept an operation in the magnitude of the 9/11," Yoram Schweitzer, an expert on international terrorism and head of the Institute of National Security Studies Program on Terrorism and Low Intensity Conflict, told The Voice of Russia.
The Occupy Movement was poorly organized and had too many causes which fractured it and caused it fall apart. In the spring of 2014 there are plans for a revival of the Occupy Movement and according to one of the organizers of the Anonymous Million Mask March, Christine Ann Sands, the focus needs to be on the root of all of the evil and the heart of the corruption, namely the corporate bankers who control the media, the government and are promoting and getting rich off of the endless wars that the US has been waging.
On 22 January 2009, President Obama released an executive order stating that any individual held by any US government agency "shall not be subjected to any interrogation technique or approach, or any treatment related to interrogation. Close reading of Department of Defense documents and investigations by numerous human rights agencies have shown that the current Army Field Manual itself uses techniques that are abusive and can even amount to torture.
A former pilot who had admitting to working for the CIA in the Iran Contra affair and had written several books investigating the events of 9-11, was found dead along with his children in what many are calling a Black Operations hit, including former US National Security Agency Officer Wayne Madsen. In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles Mr. Madsen says the author was working on his fourth book which he said would expose information that would be a bombshell and blow 9-11 wide open. The author had been told that the key to solving 9-11 was at the “Boneyard” (the Marana Air Field) in the US state of Arizona.
Throughout history states have risen and fallen and those that have risen and prospered have successfully understood and dealt with the threats to state security that were prevalent in their times. In the post 9-11 world we are faced with a new paradigm that the events of 9-11 were manipulated to bring about. Therefore it is of ultimate importance for the peaceful nations of the world to understand exactly who was behind those events. It is already clear who has benefitted and who has manipulated the events to engage in a plethora of activities that amount to crimes against peace and crimes against all humanity. Those actors have plunged our world into a lawless paradigm where the biggest threat to the states of the world today is not terrorism but those who would use terrorism and the threat of terrorism to bring about their own ends and in the extreme facilitate the destruction of states and the overthrowing of governments.
Almost two weeks passed since NSA senior executives published a memo criticizing America’s controversial surveillance program but major US media outlets still remain silent on the issue. In an exclusive interview with the Voice of Russia ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern talked about censorship as one of the main problems in modern-day America. Not only does McGovern believe that "there is no more free press" but he also states that there is not enough public supervision over the White House. Touching upon the Edward Snowden scandal, ex-CIA analyst says his revelations neither did "appreciable damage" to the US national security nor harmed US-Russia relations. Talking about improvement in US-Russia cooperation on such issues as Iran and Syria, McGovern claims there is the good ground for the bright future with one "but", which is American exceptionalism. As for the Iraq war of 2003, the analyst asserts that "it was a war of aggression as to be found by Nurnberg".
Staged suicides, demonization and set ups are just part of the way that CIA and those responsible for 9-11 continue to cover their tracks. In an interview with the Voice of Russia ex-NSA analyst Wayne Madsen discusses the staged suicide of the late 9-11 author and pilot Philip Marshal and the ties of the Bush family to the CIA and 9-11. Mr. Madsen connects the dots of all of the facts in a way that no one else can and the result is a damning picture of an out of control government run by an illegal and criminal network of evil-doers who will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their amassed power and wealth. From ties to Nazi gold, and a family fortune based on it to positions in the CIA, Madsen details some of the connections that the Bush clan has with the introduction of American fascism.
