This week Visibility 9-11 visits the topic of COINTELPRO in the 4th part of a new series on issues facing the 9-11 Truth Movement. "Left gatekeepers", dis-information specialists, agent provocateurs, and internet "trolls" all work to distract and/or discredit the fine work of literally thousands of good and caring Americans involved in 9-11 Truth. It is important to recognize the history of things our government has done which has violated every tenet of a free society.
This broadcast welcomes back to the program, Jim Hoffman. Jim has co-authored a book Waking Up From Our Nightmare; The 9/11/01 Crimes In New York City and co-produced the video 9/11 Guilt; The Proof Is In Your Hands with Don Paul, and runs the websites wtc7.net and 911research.com. Jim has written extensively on the topic of dis-information within the 9-11 truth movement. His articles include:
The Pentagon No-757-Crash Theory: Booby Trap for 9/11 Skeptics
The Pentagon Crash: What the Physical Evidence Shows
Sifting Through Loose Change
ScholarsFor911Truth: Muddling the Evidence
These essays and many more can be found at Jim's website.
Counter Intelligence Programs, or COINTELPRO, are one more example of the federal governments' raping of our rights. These abuses were going on during the 50's, 60's and 70's, and though they were prohibited by the Church Committee regulations, they have not ceased. They are alive and well within political groups which would seek to bring about truth, justice and accountability to our government. 9-11 Truth is no exception and activists need to educate themselves on the "dirty little tricks" our government uses against our rights to free speech and association. Only then, can we learn to recognize, and then address the attempts which would tear down all of our hard work.
