Bush Administration Mulled Using Nukes After 9/11 Attacks

Bush Administration mulled using nukes after 9/11An assistant to former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder claims the Bush government ‘really played through all possibilities’ in responding to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including the use of nuclear weapons.

Germany’s Der Spiegel reported on its official website on Saturday that the United States thought about employing nuclear weapons against Afghanistan, according to Michael Steiner, who was as a political counselor to then-German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder.

Marcy Borders Was Much More Than 9/11’s ‘Dust Lady’

Karcy Borders diesWith Marcy Borders’s death from stomach cancer, aged 42, the picture is back again, of course: Borders, caked in dust on September 11, 2001, looking stunned at the camera, caught on the day that would come to define her far-too-short life.

When I see that famous image I recall meeting her nearly 10 years later, and us both standing in the living room of her apartment in Bayonne, New Jersey, looking at the dress she wore that day which she had kept unwashed. It still smelled of smoke and burning, it was still dusty, and had a soot-like film to it, a thick, claggy texture: a remnant of a terrible day that still reeked and felt of that day.

World Trade Center dust scientist Paul Lioy dies aged 68

Paul LioyPaul Lioy, the scientist who analyzed dust from the fallen World Trade Center and its potential danger to first responders, died after suddenly collapsing at Newark Liberty International Airport. He was 68.

After 9/11, Lioy raced down to lower Manhattan from his home in Cranford, N.J., and collected bags of the dust. He discovered that the thick gray dust contained a dangerous mix of elements like wood, plastic, glass, asbestos and concrete.

In 2010, he published his findings in a book "Dust: The Inside Story of Its Role in the September 11th Aftermath."

Documents show bitter CIA dispute over pre-9/11 performance

9/11 info declassifiedTop CIA officials fought bitterly in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks over whether U.S. intelligence agencies could have done more to stop the deadliest terror strikes in U.S. history, documents released on Friday show.

The once-secret documents include a more complete version of a 2005 report by the spy agency's inspector general, which found that the CIA did not have a comprehensive strategy or marshal adequate resources to combat Al-Qaeda before hijacked planes hit New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11.

A redacted summary of that report was first made public in 2007.

Rand Paul’s New Crusade: The Secret 9/11 Docs

Rand PaulSen. Rand Paul, the man of the hour when it comes to pushing back against government secrecy, is throwing his weight behind a fresh push to declassify 28 pages from a 2002 Senate inquiry into the causes of 9/11.

The Kentucky Republican is sponsoring legislation called the “Transparency for the Families of 9/11 Act,” which would force the release of the disputed pages. With his support, an important issue that has languished far too long may be finally gaining traction.

After 9/11, We Were All Judith Miller

Judith MillerIf the sales of Judith Miller’s memoir are commensurate with the vituperation of the attacks on her, the royalties will mount. Her critics—they are many and loud—say the former New York Times reporter bears a responsibility for the Iraq war because the articles she wrote in the lead-up to the invasion advanced the Bush Administration’s contention that the country had weapons of mass destruction.

It’s easy to disparage Miller. Too easy. Censure her and we can sidestep looking at our own reporting, at broader disquieting questions about journalism since 9/11. As journalists, we all let our guard down in the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack on American soil. We abandoned some of the most important journalistic principles—speak truth to power; hold governments accountable; display healthy skepticism—at the base of the American flagpole. And I don’t just mean the royal we, the institutional we. I, too, am culpable.

9/11 defendant still suffering from ‘black site’ injuries, lawyer says at Guantánamo

9/11 defendantA defense lawyer for an alleged 9/11 plotter said Thursday that his Saudi captive client was rectally abused in CIA custody — and continues to bleed now, at least eight years later.

Attorney Walter Ruiz made the disclosure in open court in a bid to get a military judge to intervene in the medical care of Mustafa Hawsawi, 46, accused of helping the Sept. 11 hijackers with travel and money.
