William Rodgriguez was head janitor at the North Tower of the WTC for about 20 years. He even survived the bombing in 1993 for which the FBI was alleged to have played a major role in setting up. He came in late on 9/11/01 and threw himself into the rescue effort. He was acclaimed a hero and dined at the Bush White House until he told his story to the corporate-government press and the 9/11 Commission. Then he was shunned by that media. William Rodriguez became a leading activist and advocate for victim families and is still at that effort.

Emergency Truth Convergence rally in Lafayette Square across from the White House where Vic Sadot sang his first 9/11 Truth songs. Vic went on to release a 16 song CD on 9/11/11 for the 10th Anniversary of the event titled “9/11 Truth and Justice Songs”, which remains available at CD Baby, and for which there are now videos to go with most of the songs. Some are also given away at SoundCloud by BroadsideBalladeer.

Vic Sadot sang his new song, “The Ballad of William Rodriguez” at the Dag Hammorskold Plaza right after she and William Rodriguez spoke to the crowd.

More absurd arguments on the Pentagon: ‘propaganda team’ sets its sights on Griffin

This is one of the most important blogs in the 9/11 Truth Movement history. It was written in 2012 as part of a coordinated critique of David Ray Griffins writing on what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11/01. Please read it! Vic Sadot, Truth Troubadour at Berkeley Calling Blog

Truth and Shadows

Legge and Bursill think it’s likely that this picture shows the scene of a plane crash.

July 16, 2012

By Craig McKee

The co-ordinated group that wants the Pentagon out of the 9/11 truth discussion has won some key victories to be sure. But there’s one battle they haven’t won, and it really bugs them.

The group I described in my recent post, ‘Propaganda team’ uses contrived Pentagon fight to derail 9/11 Truth movement (Kevin Ryan, David Chandler, Frank Legge, Jonathan Cole, Jim Hoffman, John Bursill, and others) can’t stand the fact that David Ray Griffin continues

Getting Real About Richard Clarke by Kevin Ryan

“Getting Real About Richard Clarke” by Kevin Ryan at Dig Within Blog 2-02-14.

Kevin Ryan is the author of “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”, which I, Vic Sadot, reviewed in my “Truth Troubadour” Blog. The kind of information documented this many years after 9/11 has many people thinking that we should not be calling for a “new investigation” anymore. Rather that charges and prosecutions move forward and tie together the revelations of the Senate Report on Torture, the known facts of the anthrax case used to push the Patriot Repression Act through Congress at locomotive speed, and the kind of court-worthy evidence gathered in hundreds of books and documentaries, such as Kevin Ryan’s writings reveal. The fact is that the torture testimony was needed to actually have a story for 9/11 Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow to tell. There are many areas of focus being established as the basis for genuine judicial process in the interest of 9/11 Truth and Justice. Rock and Roll Revolutionary John Lennon said, “You can live a lie until you die! But one thing you can’t hide is when you’re crippled inside!”

Ryan Excerpts from his “Dig Within” Blog  that bring 9/11 into the Context of Today:

“President Obama’s 2013 advisory panel on NSA spying included some interesting people considering that the justification for such crimes against democracy always go back to 9/11. One member was Cass Sunstein, who had previously advised the president to “cognitively infiltrate” citizen groups that sought the truth about 9/11. Another panel member was Richard Clarke, the former “counterterrorism czar,” whose opinions on the subject continue to be widely publicized despite suspicions that Clarke might have been in league with the 9/11 terrorists…. Clarke suggested that Osama bin Laden was never worried about being caught before he was killed because he “thought he’d get tipped.” Clarke meant that Bin Laden was helped by retired intelligence officials and would be tipped off to any operation. In the same interview, Clarke told Maher that Afghanis were pathetic and that Pakistanis were “pathological liars.” However, there are good reasons to believe that it is Clarke who is a pathological liar. Those reasons include that it was Clarke who tipped off Bin Laden’s friends in the years before 9/11, effectively preventing the capture or killing of that alleged terrorist mastermind. Clarke later promoted lies about a man called Abu Zubaydah, whose torture testimony is behind much of the 9/11 Commission Report. People need to know more about Richard Clarke before taking any more of his comments at face value. The following excerpts from my book Another Nineteen might make that point a little more obvious. http://digwithin.net/2014/02/02/real-clarke

Chapter 15 presents the case for investigating SAIC and Duane Andrews, who considers Dick Cheney his hero, as legitimate suspects for the crimes of 9/11/01

New “Truth Troubadour” Blog Salutes the Work of Tod Fletcher

Titled “A Hearty Salute to the Political Awareness Work of 9/11 Truth Activist Tod Fletcher”, the new article was posted at Truth Troubadour Blog by Vic Sadot. It features many links to the work of Tod Fletcher on radio and in writing. There is no doubt that Tod Fletcher would want to be remembered as the major researcher, writer, editor, and speaker that he was in the global 9/11 Truth & Justice movement. Tod was an editor for David Ray Griffin books. He occasionally was a stand-in for Griffin when the acclaimed theologian and 9/11 scholar could not make a radio interview due to illness.
http://truthtroubadour.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-hearty-salute-to-political-awareness.html

There will be a Memorial Gathering for Tod Fletcher and his wife Susan Peabody who chose suicide over continued suffering. See Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Social Justice Committee Facebook Event Listings for the Memorial Gathering for Tod Fletcher and Susan Peabody scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 22 from 1-4 pm. Some people will skype into the event, such as David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth who worked on scholarly projects with Tod Fletcher. http://www.facebook.com/events/508202625950001

Tod’s last interview on Bonnie Faulkner’s “Guns & Butter” Radio Show on KPFA was on Sept 3, 2014. It is archived at KPFA and at NoLiesRadio (link below). The lives and the passing of Tod and his wife Susan do indeed make a sad and difficult story. But it is also a story of true and dedicated love.

See the link to the moving tribute by David Ray Griffin: “In Memory of Tod Fletcher: A Life of Service (1952-2014)” David Ray Griffin in Global Research (Centre for Research on Globalization) 10-08-14. In that article David Ray Griffin quotes the late-great 9/11 Truth scholar Tod Fletcher in GlobalResearch.ca: “Having sensed earlier than most of us the falsity of the government’s explanation of what had happened on 9/11, he said: ‘I never fell for the official explanation. I’ve been researching and writing about 9/11 since 9/12’.”
