Has credibility of Toronto 9/11 hearings been hurt by pressure?

This post requires an update. In it, I expressed outrage at the appearance that a change was being made to the roster of Toronto witnesses based on pressure from the group that regularly attacks Citizen Investigation Team and ridicules the idea that no 757 hit the Pentagon. It turns out that while pressure was certainly applied, this change was at the request of the person whose name was removed from the schedule (April Gallop). Despite the fact that I said people should be angry “if” she was removed due to pressure and didn’t state this as a fact, the impression left was unfair to the organizers of the hearings.Craig McKee

It appears that the organizers of the Toronto 9/11 hearings have utterly caved to pressure and thrown fairness and common sense under the bus in the process.
April Gallop, who was injured in the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001 along with her infant son, has been removed from the list of witnesses at the upcoming hearings (Sept. 8-11), to be replaced by an “unconfirmed” witness. If that replacement is assigned to make the case that a 757 did, in fact, hit the Continue reading

Insult to injury: court denies 9/11 appeal, threatens sanctions

April Gallop’s legal battle to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 is over. And now the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit wants to turn the tables on the former U.S. Army specialist.
On Wednesday, the court dismissed Gallop’s appeal in a decision that came complete with sarcasm, conflict of interest, and obvious bias. The decision also came with a threat of sanctions on the basis that the case was frivolous and should never have been appealed in the first place.
Gallop launched her suit against former vice-president Dick Cheney, former secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld, and former of the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Richard Myers in 2008. She sought damages for injuries she and her son suffered during the alleged plane Continue reading

Fix is in: Bush cousin presides over Cheney, Rumsfeld, Myers lawsuit

By Craig McKee

No, it’s not a joke.
A 9/11 lawsuit against former high officials in the Bush White House is being presided over by a cousin of former president George W. Bush – a shocking and blatant conflict of interest that should embarrass even believers in the official story.

Walker will decide if case goes forward.

George W. Bush’s cousin, Judge John M. Walker of the 2nd Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals, is part of a three-judge panel hearing the case of April Gallop vs. former vice-president Dick Cheney, former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers.
The case has been ignored by the mainstream media in the weeks leading up to it going to court April 5. And most media have ignored the developments concerning the involvement of Judge Walker. One exception is CNBC, which carried Continue reading

Could lawsuit against Cheney, Rumsfeld, Myers blow 9/11 open?

April Gallop and her son, Elisha, were injured in the Pentagon.

By Craig McKee

In an ideal world, April Gallop’s lawsuit would be the 9/11 breakthrough that the Truth movement has been waiting for. If real justice existed, this suit would break the story wide open.
I have to be realistic and see it as a long shot, but you never know…
Gallop is suing former vice-president Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and former acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard Myers for damages in connection with injuries she and her newborn son suffered in the supposed terrorist attack at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
The suit comes before the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit (Connecticut) on April 5. On March 15, 2010, Judge Denny Chin dismissed the suit with prejudice in a lower court, contending that the complaint was based on “cynical delusion and fantasy.”
Let’s hope things go better this time. In particular, she and her lawyer William Veale hope that the case goes forward giving her the power to subpoena witnesses. If she and Veale succeed then things will really get interesting.
Gallop, a former U.S. Army executive administrative assistant (with top secret clearance), contends that the three defendants – along with an unknown number of others – engaged in a criminal conspiracy to perpetrate a Continue reading
