Najla Hariri says there is no law against women driving, only society’s convention
 
A Saudi woman has taken to the road in a direct challenge to the country’s ban on female drivers.
 
“Najla Hariri started driving around Jeddah last week. She is believed to be the only woman regularly driving in a Saudi city.
 
The 45-year-old says she was inspired by the protests taking place elsewhere in the Middle East.
 
“Enough is enough”, she told the BBC as she drove around the city. “I have the right to [drive].””

Hear an interview with Najla at about 35:37 into this BBC Newshour:

via Arab News:

“Recently a group announced its intention to elevate the issue with a campaign called “I Will Drive Starting June 17″ which comes after a group recently sent a petition to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah requesting his support for their action. The group, which currently professes to have 2,000 committed participants, echoes the government’s past statements that there is no law against women driving.”

Twenty-five U.S. Military Officers Challenge Official Account of 9/11

 

by Alan Miller

Official Account of 9/11: “Impossible”, “A Bunch of Hogwash”, “Total B.S.”, “Ludicrous”, “A Well-Organized Cover-up”, “A White-Washed Farce”

January 14, 2008 – Twenty-five former U.S. military officers have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation. They include former commander of U.S. Army Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Col. Ronald D. Ray, two former staff members of the Director of the National Security Agency; Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, and Major John M. Newman, PhD, and many others. They are among the rapidly growing number of military and intelligence service veterans, scientists, engineers, and architects challenging the government’s story. The officers’ statements appear below, listed alphabetically.
Lt. Col. Robert Bowman, PhD “A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash. It’s impossible,” said Lt. Col. Robert Bowman, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret). [1] With doctoral degrees in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering, Col. Bowman served as Director of Advanced Space Programs Development under Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.

“There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up,” continued Col. Bowman. “Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible. Who gained from 9/11? Who covered up crucial information about 9/11? And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place? When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney.”

Regarding the failure of NORAD to intercept the four hijacked planes on 9/11, Col. Bowman said, “I’m an old interceptor pilot. I know the drill. I’ve done it. I know how long it takes. I know the rules. … Critics of the government story on 9/11 have said: ‘Well, they knew about this, and they did nothing’. That’s not true. If our government had done nothing that day and let normal procedure be followed, those planes, wherever they were, would have been intercepted, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive.” [2]

During his 22-year Air Force career, Col. Bowman also served as the Head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering and Assistant Dean at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology. He also flew over 100 combat missions in Viet Nam as a fighter pilot.

Mike Malloy Wants 911 Truth

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2008 by highboldtage

Understanding 9/11 leads to a place dark and evil. A deep dark hole where we are ruled by criminal psychopaths. Scary place in the middle of the woods. Not a lot of people go there. Especially after dark. But through chance or design some of us have gone there. And since we’re spread out all over the place … it’d be really fine to have a place to gather and talk about it. And the more company we have in that scary place in the middle of the woods … the less scary it is.”

And, so, Truthseekers, this: Beginning on tonight’s program we will devote at least one program a week – maybe more – to an examination of 9/11 from every angle we can think of. Some nights we will invite experts on various aspects of 9/11 to tell us what they know, and other nights we will discuss the topic among ourselves.

The benefit of knowing about 9/11 is in the knowing.
