Close to 4,000 U.S. troops
have been killed in the war in Iraq and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians have died as a result of the war. What for?
This is the legacy of the War President - George W. Bush. On October 27th make it known that while this may be the legacy
of George W. Bush it is not the legacy of the American people. Stand up and confront the war President. Stand up for peace!

Armed Madhouse: America's most SHOCKING Book
While asking U.S. Senator John Kerry a question during a question and answer period on September 17th
following Kerry's speech at the University of Florida in Alachua County, Andrew Meyer, a senior majoring in telecommunications, was attacked by five police officers, manhandled and tasered. Videos
posted on the Internet show Meyer screaming for help as he is being tasered by a police stun gun. Kerry and the majority of
the audience looked on mostly in silence.
After holding up, recommending and discussing Armed Madhouse, a book by
Greg Palast, the investigative journalist who uncovered the massive, systematic and utterly illegal disenfranchisement of
Black voters in Alachua County, Florida, during the 2000 election, Meyer had three questions for the 2004 Democratic presidential
candidate. Meyer's first question to Kerry was, "How could you concede the election on the day?" Then he asked why Kerry didn’t
call for impeaching Bush before Bush attacks Iran. Meyer's final question was if Kerry was a member of Skull and Bones, the secret society at Yale University, along with George Bush.
The microphone was cut on Meyers and
then five officers pulled him from the podium. While Meyers was asking questions about the arrest, the police threw him to
the ground and tasered him. Next, the police physically removed Meyer from the forum and told him that he was being arrested
for trying to "incite a riot." He was later charged with a felony for resisting arrest with violence and a misdemeanor of
disrupting the peace. Meyer was released from jail in the morning of September 18th, and plans to fight to have all charges
On September 18th, at the University of Florida, more than 200 people held a solidarity picket with the
detainee and against the limiting of free speech and the user of tasers by university police. Banners were carried saying
“Freedom of speech is not a crime”, “Stop using tasers”. Firing the security guards from the university
was also demanded.
Zogby Poll: 51%
of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks;
Seek Immediate Impeachment
also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of
World Trade Center 7
Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 - As America
nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority
of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush' and Vice President Cheney's actions before, during
and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.
The 911truth.org–sponsored poll also found that over two-thirds
of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center
Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.
WTC 7 housed the mayor's emergency bunker and offices of the SEC, IRS,
CIA and Secret Service and was not hit by any planes but still completely collapsed into its own footprint nearly eight hours
after the Twin Tower attacks. FEMA did not explain this collapse, the 911 Commission ignored it, and the promised official
study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now 2 years overdue.
Janice Matthews, executive director of poll sponsor 911truth.org, observes:
"The supermajority response to the WTC Building 7 question signals an increasing public concern about this remarkable event
-- up from 38% last year. We can perhaps credit this rising awareness to the millions who have recently witnessed videos or
Youtube clips of this skyscraper's descent and the outspoken demands for a new WTC inquiry from over 150 architects and engineering
professionals, including NIST's own former Fire Science Division Chief, Dr. James Quintiere. Another contributory factor is
the increased questioning among Hispanics, Blacks and Asians whose responses appear significantly more critical of the 9/11
Commission than Whites, sometimes twice as critical."
Strategy aide W. David Kubiak adds, "While only 32% seek immediate Bush
and/or Cheney impeachment based on their current personal knowledge, a clear majority of citizens still seems hungry for a
full exposure of the facts. The results suggest widespread public support for legislators like Rep. Dennis Kucinich who pledge
to investigate unanswered 9/11 questions in the relevant congressional committees this fall. We hope more of our representatives
find the spine to respond to this escalating dissatisfaction with the dubious accounting we have received thus far."
9/11 family member and 911truth.org advisor Donna Marsh O'Connor notes,
"I’m not sure this poll is at all surprising. Over half of those polled want more answers from Congress, from those
they hired to represent them. One quarter of the country knows enough to want to impeach both. Doesn't it just mean people
need figures they consider credible to tell them whether key details add up or not? Truth advocates need to press their case
in Congress, on college campuses, in church groups with reason and absolute discipline regarding what can and cannot be proven.
The strongest evidence needs to reach the people—including people who hate computers. We must present it calmly. Like
whispering so that people reach in to hear."
The Zogby poll was conceived and commissioned by 911truth.org and paid
for with generous assistance from individual project donors and Visibility911.com. 911truth.org is a national information
clearing house and grassroots resource center for the US 9/11 truth movement. The group is dedicated to investigation, education,
organizing, and accountability regarding the recent criminal misuse of government to promote fear, repression and endless
This is a telephone survey of adults nationwide conducted by Zogby International
from August 23 to August 27, 2007. The target sample is 1,000 interviews with approximately 71 questions asked. Samples are
randomly drawn from telephone cd’s of national listed sample. Zogby International surveys employ sampling strategies
in which selection probabilities are proportional to population size within area codes and exchanges. As many as six calls
are made to reach a sampled phone number. Cooperation rates are calculated using one of AAPOR’s approved methodologies
and are comparable to other professional public-opinion surveys conducted using similar sampling strategies. Weighting by
region, party, age, race, religion, and gender is used to adjust for non-response. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 percentage
points. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.
