St. Germain:

Dearest friends and Earth angels, I will bring you important information this night to help you on your way to Ascension.  I am with the Company of Heaven, and we all send you our most intensely loving energy.  You are probably feeling it in your body today.  It might make you feel a bit dizzy, or woozy as you might call it, as if you have been spinning around and just stopped.  You might feel a flush of heat, a bit of ringing in your ears.  Do not be concerned.  It is our love coming through to you, clearing old shadows and lifting your vibration another notch.  Know that what you are feeling is being felt by every human being on the planet, and the result will be tangible in the way people behave toward one another tomorrow, the day after, and next week.

You have ridden out the earlier energy shifts beautifully – in fact, you hardly remember the rough spots, do you?  We have kept a steady increase in the vibrational energy coming through, by increasing the flow gradually and in a wave-like ebb and flow to allow you to catch your breath in between.  This is accomplishing the primary effect that would have occurred if you had been lifted off the planet and given the first treatment in the Light chambers.  The first phase, of course, is to transition from your carbon-based DNA to crystalline based.  It is changing everything about your physical and mental functioning.  Because it has been gradual, you are not as aware as if it had happened in one day, but look back, Dear Ones, and remember how far you have come.

There is a dramatic change in the number of people who are becoming psychically connected to us.  In fact, my channeling schedule has expanded to several people in Europe and other places around the globe.  The same has occurred for all the Company of Heaven, and we are delighted by it, for we wish to reach every single one of you, to be connected to all of you in a deep and intimate way, in constant communication as we are with so many of you who are reading these messages.  The Veil is lifting, little by little.  Check inside yourselves; look at your awareness of your breathing, your heart rate, the thoughts that run through your mind, and your moment by moment emotions.

You are far more aware, more cognizant of your own effect on your moods, your health and your feelings.  As One has told you, it is the mark of an Ascended Master to be completely in command of your thoughts, feelings and actions.  Once you accomplish that, you will never again have a bad day, or an anxious feeling, or a doubt about the importance of your role in the unfolding drama that will change the world.  Yes, even as you look around you to see the much publicized brutal acts of war, know that those who have been treated cruelly have long ago made a contract with Creator to serve as the catalysts for peace.

The wars you now are witnessing are limited in scope and will not expand to encompass whole regions, as you are being encouraged to fear.  Of course, killings are not pleasant under any circumstances, but your feelings of nausea and pain when you hear about them are the measure of how far we have come.  It was only a few years ago that 100,000 civilian deaths were applauded on the media as the “shock and awe” tactics of the past administration.  It was loudly proclaimed as a victory over Islamic “terrorists” who were somehow mysteriously connected to Saddam Hussein, who was somehow mysteriously connected to Al Qaida, a powerful and mysterious underground movement which suddenly had the wherewithal to completely shut down the entire U.S defense system and attack America on its home soil.

All this was supposedly initiated by Osama Bin Laden, who denied any involvement, was shortly afterward known to be on dialysis in a hospital in Pakistan, but who was supposedly orchestrating it all from a cave with a computer and a cell phone.  He has since been identified as Tim Osman, CIA connected operative, trained and armed by the U.S. to fight in Afghanistan against Russia.

As many of you now know, there are numerous 9/11 truth videos by experts in fields like architecture and engineering, and more recently, video animation.  Yes, these are the experts who will show you that there were no airplanes attacking the World Trade Center, but there were fairly sloppily edited video tapes of animated airplanes mysteriously melting into the building without any hint of a crash, or any sign of airplane debris.

New evidence has finally surfaced, thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, which shows a missile hitting the Pentagon.  At last, the most video-taped building in the U.S will be shown to have been hit, not by an airliner, which supposedly vanished into a tiny hole in the side of the building, but by a rocket.

Additional investigation brings to light why Building 7 mysteriously collapsed, and the kind of incriminating evidence that was contained in that building.  At last, millions of Americans are remembering their high school physics and chemistry and realizing that jet fuel cannot melt steel, and airplanes cannot melt through concrete and steel without damage, and then suddenly disappear.  You have seen a crash-test vehicle crumple on impact, or an 18-wheeler smash into a barricade; the barricade remains, and the vehicle is left in a heap, with all parts mangled but still identifiable.

The cabal-run conspiracy was able to pull the wool over the eyes of most of the U.S. population and to ridicule and sneer at anyone who tried to expose them as “conspiracy theorists.”  Only gradually have more and more people begun to wake up to the fact that nothing about the original story-line makes any sense, given the physical evidence, and everything about it being a “false flag operation” does make sense in the light of the trillions of dollars of profits and tremendous expansion of power that resulted.

Now, why am I bringing up these unpleasantries now?  First, to make sure you have not gone back to sleep when it comes to exposing the culprits who masterminded the horrific event.  You will soon be able to press for investigations (which were never done).  Secondly, I am reminding you of how far you have come.  Even those of you who were initially stunned into taking up your ire against the “terrorists” who allegedly caused it have come to realize that the “party line” made no sense at all.  In spite of your reluctance, you have acknowledged that your government, as representatives of the cabal, could have done something so unthinkable.

I assure you, Dear Ones, they could and they did accomplish the most elaborate act of treason ever known to your civilization.  In fact, in complexity and scope it does indeed rival the destruction of Atlantis.  Fortunately, the follow-up plans were cut short by the election of your current administration, whom many of you blame for what has been the aftermath of the master plan.  Only gradually has it been possible to bring the cabal into line, so to speak.  The vast network of the military/corporate/pharmaceutical/agricultural industrial complex has been under investigation, under pressure and exposed to the Light in just the past 6 years.

Do you notice how your thinking has changed during those 6 years, how aware you are now of being lied to by those in power and those who have something to gain from manipulating your feelings?  Yes, occasionally you do overreact and attack the ones who are actually doing the difficult clean-up work behind the scenes, and you must guard against paranoia – that is, succumbing to the belief that everyone is bad, and no one is to be trusted.  You are learning to truly examine, scrutinize, weigh evidence, investigate further, and remain objective in your assessments, even as you follow your heart.

Yes, this is the work you are being asked to do now.  Our messages and the articles we have asked Kathryn and Gabriella to write are addressed to this precious skill which has remained dormant for so many human beings for centuries.  You are growing, and there is another step you can take: that is, to practice the skill I mentioned above, to remain objective and in your heart at the same time.

How is this possible?  It is not as difficult as you might think. The problem for most of you is that you have been taught to “use your brain” to settle a controversy.  This is a perfectly useless endeavor.  Your brain is a computer.  It can compare two colors and tell you which is blue and which is red, because it has stored the common names we use for such things.  It can look at evidence, but cannot determine truth.

A brain tends to see anything that is repeated endlessly as “evidence,” whereas a heart will be unimpressed by repetition or emphatically proclaimed “facts”, and will look instead to the integrity of the individual who is presenting the evidence. A heart will detect insincerity, but a brain will completely accept lies, as long as they are carefully constructed and enthusiastically presented.

You may wonder why this is so important at this moment in your history as a civilization, and your life during this incarnation.  I implore you to awaken, Dear Ones, and understand that this is the work of the hour, the clearing away of old lies, deceitfulness and the damage it has caused.  Whole countries have been brought to their knees, families torn apart, lives lost and hearts broken because humankind was asleep.

You cannot remain blind and in denial to the fact that there has been great evil at work in your lives, and then expect to “change the world.”  How will you know where to start?  Will you simply free all the criminals from jail, on the belief that there is good in everyone?  Or will you lock up everyone who has ever held a political position because “all politicians are crooks”?  Will you condemn a person on the word of one who has something to gain by the accused’s downfall, or will you permit your brethren to do so?  How do you judge right from wrong, or do you refuse to use your powers of judgment for fear of being accused of being “judgmental”?

Your civilization has reached a turning point.  It will proceed with self-righteous indignation, to bombing or hanging all the suspected perpetrators, or you will institute a brand new system of justice and fairness under the new Light we have called NESARA.

This is my point, you see.  We expect you to be the ones to carry the Violet Flame.  Do you realize what this means?  It is not only a way of sweeping away old injuries and feelings within yourself; it is a means of burning away all that is not kindness, compassion and wisdom.

You, Beloved Ones, will be asked to judge, evaluate and assess what kinds of justice will be established in the New Golden Age, as you make the transition from the cabal-run arbitrary system you have now, to one in which those of the Light will be protected rather than persecuted, and those who have been responsible for the suffering of others will be brought to justice to answer for their crimes, and to be separated for a time from their innocent brethren who would be endangered otherwise.

This is the True Way.  It involves no punishment, no condemnation or ridicule.  It is simply a matter of allowing Light and Love to flourish unimpeded.  As we move into the completely new and open-ended opportunities your financial blessings will allow, it will require a high level of wisdom, restraint, and above all, the spirit of investigation, to find your way to a truly sophisticated, imaginative, high vibrational way of life.

You have been told by One that it really matters how you use your energy, and that you are only beginning to realize the power you wield with your thoughts and feelings. You have the power to create great good, and you also can use your passions to cut like a knife into the quick of one who does not deserve your disapproval. Be tender with your children and delicate with one another, for you are each precious and worthy of respect.

Raise your consciousness, Dear Ones.  Be always intent on sending your energies in a way that will uplift, celebrate another’s competence and free will, and will not impinge on their free expression when it is of the Light.  By the same token, do not support anyone who attacks others under the assumption that it is justifiable, a matter of their “freedom of speech” to abuse or insult with impunity.

Command fairness, sensitivity and decent behavior, always, in yourself and others. You are the ones who will bring balance to a world that has been, literally, out of alignment.  We in the Company of Heaven need your steady presence, your powerful hearts and wills, to raise yourselves into the higher levels of group consciousness which you will feel as blissful and radiant openness and connection.  This will only be possible if you are connecting with others of high vibration.  Otherwise, you would be joining a gang, not a high level group consciousness.  You see the difference between where you have been, and where you are going?

In higher dimensions, we remain free to express individuality within the context of a cohesive whole.  We operate in harmony because we are Love.  We respect one another because it would be otherwise impossible to align with One.  We recognize a hierarchy based simply upon the radiance-quotient of each soul and the abilities which come with experience and enlightenment.  Our adoration and respect for those who are purely of the Light has no bounds, and we aspire always to attain our highest potential, to raise our vibration to combine our energies with the energies of One.

This is our destiny as souls, my Beloved Brothers and Sisters.  You are learning to reach higher, to merge with your Higher Self, on the way to becoming the higher dimensional being you were created to be.  Treasure every moment of this time of growth and expansion.  You have been blessed with great riches.  You will add money to those riches, but do not allow this to unbalance you.  Concentrate on the profound lessons of the last year, and revel in the mastery you have gained along the way.

There is much more to come.  You will be glad for the education you have gained, the friends you have made, and your connection to God.  All these things will become the foundation for the enormous shift you will experience as you move into the Light.  What could be more exciting?

I will tell you, when we meet in full consciousness, the stories of my adventures in helping to establish and distribute the Prosperity Funds, and the challenges we faced in creating and implementing the NESARA system in spite of resistance from the aging and failing patriarchs of the dying cabal. It will make a wonderful story for the history books, as you say, and you will then understand what an important part you played in the creation of your new and radiant world.

I love you with all my heart. In service to One and humankind, I am your Adamos St. Germain.  Namaste, all.

9/11 FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public

by  Gaia Edwards

As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent an entire month filming: “What I saw at certain moments and in certain places … is very disturbing!”  He never handed his 29 tapes over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since.  Kurt Sonnenfeld lives in exile in Argentina, where he wrote “El Perseguido” (Persecuted).  His recently-published book tells the story of his unending nightmare and drives another nail into the coffin of the government’s account of the 9/11 events.  Below is an exclusive interview by Voltaire Network.

Introduction

Kurt Sonnenfeld graduated from the University of Colorado (USA) with studies in International Affairs and Economics, as well as in Literature and Philosophy. He worked for the United States government as official videographer and served as Director of Broadcast Operations for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)’s National Emergency Response Team. Additionally, Kurt Sonnenfeld was contracted by several other governmental agencies and programs for classified and “sensitive” operations at military and scientific installations throughout the United States.

On September 11, 2001, the area known as “Ground Zero” was sealed from the public eye. Sonnenfeld, however, was given unrestricted access enabling him to document for the investigation (that never took place) and provide some “sanitized” pool video to virtually every news network in the world. The tapes that reveal some of the anomalies which he discovered at Ground Zero are still in his possession.

Accused of a crime that did not occur in a manifest frame-up scenario, especially in light of ensuing events, Kurt Sonnenfeld has been persecuted across continents.  After several years of fear, injustice and isolation, he has decided to take a public stand against the Government’s official story and is prepared to submit his material to the close scrutiny of reliable experts.

Interview

Voltaire NetworkYour autobiographical book titled “El Perseguido” (Persecuted) was recently published in Argentina where you live in exile since 2003.  Tell us who is persecuting you.

Kurt Sonnenfeld: Although it is autobiographical, it is not my life story. Rather it is a history of the extraordinary events that have happened to me and my family at the hands of U.S. authorities over the course of more than seven years, spanning two hemispheres, after my tour of duty at Ground Zero and becoming an inconvenient witness.

Voltaire NetworkYou explained that your request for refugee status within the terms of the Geneva 1951 Convention is still being considered by  the Argentinean Senate, while in 2005 you were granted political asylum, albeit, on a  provisional basis. That probably makes you the first U.S. citizen in that situation! And no doubt the first U.S. Government official with direct exposure to the events surrounding September 11, 2001 who has “blown the whistle”. Is this what drove you into exile?

Kurt Sonnenfeld: A refugee is a person who has been forced to leave (or stay away from) his or her country for reasons of persecution. It’s undeniable that many people have been persecuted unfairly as a result of the quasi-fascist laws and policies brought about by the shock of September 11, 2001, and they deserve refugee status. But the fact is, requesting refugee status is a risky and dangerous step to take. America is the world’s only remaining “superpower”, and dissent has been effectively repressed. Any person who requests refugee status on political grounds is by nature making an extreme statement of dissent. And if your request is denied, what do you do?  Once you make the request, there can be no going back.

Personally, I wasn’t forced to leave the United States, and I certainly did not “flee”. At the time I was still fairly oblivious to what was actually brewing against me. I hadn’t connected the dots yet; so that when I left in early 2003 I had every intention of returning. I came to Argentina for a short respite; to try to recuperate after all that had happened to me. I travelled here freely, with my own passport, using my own credit cards. But because of an incredible series of events, I have since been forced into exile, and I haven’t been back.

Voltaire NetworkWhat type of events are you referring to?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  I’ve suffered false accusations for “crimes” that demonstrably did not happen, abusive imprisonment and torture as a result of those accusations, as well as outrageous calumnies against my reputation, death threats, kidnap attempts and several other violations of civil and human rights as denounced by numerous international accords. My return to the United States would not only be a continuation of those violations, but would be aggregated by the separation – perhaps permanent – from my wife and three-year old twin daughters, the only thing remaining that I have to live for. And then, after the impossibility of receiving a fair trial for a crime that did not happen, I could be subject to the death penalty.

Voltaire NetworkIn 2005, the U.S. Government  lodged a request  to have you extradited, which was turned down by a Federal Judge.  Then, in 2007, the Argentinean Supreme Court – in a show of integrity and independence – turned down the U.S. appeal,  but your Government  persisted.  Can you shed some light on the situation ?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  In 2008, the US government appealed again, this time with absolutely no legal foundation, to the Supreme Court, which will surely uphold the two already unassailable rulings made by the Federal Judge.

In one of those rulings, it was also noted that there were too many “sombras”, or shadows, surrounding my case. There were many, many obvious fabrications in the extradition order sent here by US authorities, and, thankfully, we were able prove that. The fact that there were so many fabrications has actually served to support my request for asylum. We were also able to show that we had been subject to a prolonged campaign of harassment and intimidation from US intelligence services. As a result, since my family has been assigned round-the-clock police protection. As one senator has noted about my case: “It is their behavior that belies their true motivations”.

Voltaire NetworkThey want you pretty badly for a “crime that did not happen”! How do you account for such  doggedness? As a FEMA  official, you must have been trusted by your government. At what point did the situation capsize?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  In hindsight, I realize now that the situation had capsized some time before I actually became aware that it had capsized. Initially, the false accusation against me was completely irrational, and I was totally destroyed by it. It is incredibly difficult to have suffered the loss of someone you love to suicide, but to then be accused of it is too much to bear. The case was dismissed based on a mountain of evidence that overwhelmingly absolved me (Nancy, my wife, had left behind a suicide note and a journal of suicidal writings ; she had a family history of suicide ; etc.). The prosecution was 100% sure of my innocence before requesting the dismissal of charge.

But the sustained incarceration even AFTER it was indicated that I was to be freed was what proved to me that something was happening under the surface. I was held in jail for FOUR MONTHS after my lawyers were informed that the case was to be dismissed and was finally released in June 2002.  During that time, an amazing series of strange events began to occur. While still being held, I had a telephone conversation with FEMA  officials in an effort to resolve the issue, but I realized that I was considered “compromised”. I was told it had been agreed that “the agency had to be protected”, especially in light of the upheaval that was threatening with the implementation of the “Patriot Act” and the expected usurpation that would come with the new Department of Homeland Security. After all the dangers I had risked, all hardship and difficulties I had endured for them for almost 10 years, I felt betrayed. It left a void in my soul.

Because of their abandonment, I told them I didn’t have the tapes, that I gave them to “some bureaucrat” in New York, and that they would have to wait until I was released to retrieve any other documents in my possession. Soon after that conversation, my house was “seized”, the locks were changed, and men were observed by neighbors entering my house, though there is no record in the court of their entry, as would be required. When I was finally released, I discovered that my office had been ransacked, my computer was missing, and that my tape library in my basement had been dug through and several were missing. Men were constantly parked on the street near my house, my security system was “hacked” more than once, outdoor security lights were unscrewed, etc., to the point that I went to stay with some friends at their condo in the mountains, which was then ALSO broken into.

Anyone who looks for the truth recognizes that there has been an amazing series of irregularities in this case and that an appalling injustice is being carried out on me and my loved ones. This intense campaign to return me to American soil is a false pretext for other darker motives.

Voltaire Network:   You have suggested that you observed things at Ground Zero that did not tally with the official account.  Did you do or say anything to arouse suspicion in this respect?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  In that same telephone call I said that I would “go public”, not only with my suspicions about the events surrounding September 11, 2001, but about several contracts I had worked on in the past.

Voltaire NetworkWhat are your suspicions based on?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  There were many things, in hindsight, that were disturbing at Ground Zero. It was odd to me that I was dispatched to go to New York even before the second plane hit the South Tower, while the media was still reporting only that a “small plane” had collided with the North Tower — far too small of a catastrophe at that point to involve FEMA.  The Agency was mobilized within minutes, whereas it took ten days for it to deploy to New Orleans to respond to Hurricane Katrina, even with abundant advance warning! It was odd to me that all cameras were so fiercely prohibited within the secured perimeter of Ground Zero, that the entire area was declared a crime scene and yet the “evidence” within that crime scene was so rapidly removed and destroyed. And then it was very odd to me when I learned that FEMA and several other federal agencies had already moved into position at their command center at Pier 92 on September 10th, one day before the attacks!

We are asked to believe that all four of the “indestructible” black boxes of the two jets that struck the twin towers were never found because they were completely vaporized, yet I have footage of the rubber wheels of the landing gear nearly undamaged, as well as the seats, parts of the fuselage and a jet turbine that were absolutely not vaporized. This being said, I do find it rather odd that such objects could have survived fairly intact the type of destruction that turned most of the Twin Towers into thin dust.  And I definitely harbor some doubts about the authenticity of the “jet” turbine, far too small to have come from one of the Boeings!

What happened with Building 7 is incredibly suspicious. I have video that shows how curiously small the rubble pile was, and how the buildings to either side were untouched by Building Seven when it collapsed. It had not been hit by an airplane; it had suffered only minor injuries when the Twin Towers collapsed, and there were only small fires on a couple of floors. There’s no way that building could have imploded the way it did without controlled demolition. Yet the collapse of Building 7 was hardly mentioned by the mainstream media and suspiciously ignored by the 911 Commission.

Voltaire NetworkReportedly, the underground levels of WTC7 contained sensitive and undoubtedly compromising archival material.  Did you come across any of it?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  The Secret Service, the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Office of Emergency Management’s “Crisis Center” occupied huge amounts of space there, spanning several floors of the building. Other federal agencies had offices there as well. After September 11, it was discovered that concealed within Building Seven was the largest clandestine domestic station of the Central Intelligence Agency outside of Washington DC, a base of operations from which to spy on diplomats of the United Nations and to conduct counterterrorism and counterintelligence missions.

There was no underground parking level at Seven World Trade Center. And there was no underground vault. Instead, the federal agencies at Building Seven stored their vehicles, documents and evidence in the building of their associates across the street. Beneath the plaza level of US Customs House (Building 6) was a large underground garage, separated off from the rest of the complex’s underground area and guarded under tight security. This was where the various government services parked their bomb-proofed cars and armored limousines, counterfeit taxi cabs and telephone company trucks used for undercover surveillance and covert operations, specialized vans and other vehicles. Also within that secured parking area was access to the sub-level vault of Building 6.

When the North Tower fell, the US Customs House (Building 6) was crushed and totally incinerated. Much of the underground levels beneath it were also destroyed. But there were voids. And it was into one of those voids, recently uncovered, that I descended with a special Task Force to investigate. It was there we found the security antechamber to the vault, badly damaged. At the far end of the security office was the wide steel door to the vault, a combination code keypad in the cinderblock wall beside it. But the wall was cracked and partially crumbled, and the door was sprung partially open. So we checked inside with our flashlights. Except for several rows of empty shelves, there was nothing in the vault but dust and debris. It had been emptied.  Why was it empty? And when could it have been emptied?

Voltaire NetworkIs this what set alarm bells ringing for you?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  Yes, but not immediately.  With so much chaos, it was difficult to think.  It was only after digesting everything that the “alarm bells” went off.

Building Six was evacuated within twelve minutes after the first airplane struck the North Tower. The streets were immediately clogged with fire trucks, police cars and blocked traffic, and the vault was large enough, 15 meters by 15 meters by my estimate, to necessitate at least a big truck to carry out its contents. And after the towers fell and destroyed most of the parking level, a mission to recover the contents of the vault would have been impossible. The vault had to have been emptied before the attack.

I’ve described all of this extensively in my book, and it’s apparent that things of importance were taken out of harm’s way before the attacks. For example, the CIA didn’t seem too concerned about their losses. After the existence of their clandestine office in Building Seven was discovered, an agency spokesman told the newspapers that a special team had been dispatched to scour the rubble in search of secret documents and intelligence reports, though there were millions, if not billions of pages floating in the streets. Nevertheless, the spokesman was confident. “There shouldn’t be too much paper around,” he said.

And Customs at first claimed that everything was destroyed. That the heat was so intense that everything in the evidence safe had been baked to ash. But some months later, they announced that they had broken up a huge Colombian narco-trafficking and money-laundering ring after miraculously recovering crucial evidence from the safe, including surveillance photos and heat-sensitive cassette tapes of monitored calls. And when they moved in to their new building at 1 Penn Plaza in Manhattan, they proudly hung on the lobby wall their Commissioner’s Citation Plaque and their big round US Customs Service ensign, also miraculously recovered, in pristine condition, from their crushed and cremated former office building at the World Trade Center.

Voltaire NetworkYou weren’t alone on the Ground Zero assignment. Did the others notice the same anomalies?  Do you know whether they have also been harassed?

Kurt Sonnenfeld: Actually there were a few people on two different excursions that I know about. Some of us even discussed it afterwards. They know who they are and I hope that they will come forward, but I’m sure they have strong apprehensions as to what will happen to them if they do. I will leave it to them to decide, but there is strength in numbers.

Voltaire Network: With the publication of your book, you have become a “whistleblower” – yet another step on which there is no going back!  There must be many people with inside knowledge about what really happened or did not happen on that fateful day.  Yet, hardly any have stepped up to the plate and certainly no one who was directly involved in an official capacity.  This is what makes your case so compelling. Judging from your ordeal, it is not difficult to imagine what is holding such people back.

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  Actually, there are several other very smart and credible people blowing whistles, too. And they are being discredited and ignored. Some are being harassed and persecuted, as I am.

People are gripped by fear. Everybody knows that if you question US authority you will have problems in some way or another. At minimum you will be discredited and dehumanized. Most likely you’ll find yourself indicted for something completely unrelated, like tax evasion — or something even worse, as in my case. Look at what happened to Secret Service whistle-blower Abraham Bolden, for example, or to chess master Bobby Fischer after he showed his disdain for the US. There are countless other examples. In the past I asked friends and associates to speak out for me to counter all the lies being planted in the media, and all of them were terrified as to the ramifications to themselves and their families.

Voltaire NetworkTo what degree would your discoveries at Ground Zero expose the government’s involvement in those events?  Are you familiar with the investigations that have been carried out by numerous scientists and qualified professionals which not only corroborate your own findings but, in some instances, far exceed them?  Do you regard such people as “conspiracy nuts”?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  At the highest levels in Washington, DC, someone knew what was going to happen. They wanted a war so badly that they at least let it happen and most likely even helped it happen.

Sometimes it seems to me that the “nuts” are those who hold to what they’ve been told with an almost religious fervor despite all of the evidence to the contrary — the ones who won’t even consider that there was a conspiracy. There are so many anomalies to the “official” investigation that you can’t blame it on oversight or incompetence. I am familiar with the scientists and qualified professionals to whom you refer, and their findings are convincing, credible, and presented according to scientific protocol — in stark contrast to the findings of the “official” investigation. In addition, numerous intelligence agents and government officials have now come forward with their very informed opinions that the 9/11 Commission was a farce at best or a cover-up at worst. My experience at Ground Zero is but one more piece of the puzzle.

Voltaire Network:   Those events are nearly 8 years behind us. Do you consider that uncovering the truth about 9/11 continues to be an important objective?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  It is of absolute importance. And it will be equally as important in 10 years, or even 50 years if the truth still has not been exposed. It is an important objective because, at this point in history, many people are too credulous to whatever “authority” tells them and too willing to follow. People in a state of shock seek guidance. People who are afraid are manipulable. And being able to manipulate the masses results in unimaginable benefits to a lot of very rich and very powerful people. War is incredibly expensive, but the money has to go somewhere. War is very profitable for the very few. And somehow their sons always end up in Washington DC, making the decisions and writing the budgets, while the sons of the poor and the poorly-connected always end up on the enemy lines, taking their orders and fighting their battles. The enormous black-budget of the US Department of Defense represents an unlimited money machine for the military-industrial complex, figuring in the multi-trillions of dollars, and it will continue to be so until the masses wake up, recuperate their skepticism and demand accountability. Wars (and false pretexts for war) will not cease until the people realize the true motive of war and stop believing “official” explanations.

Voltaire NetworkWhat is referred to as the 9/11 Truth Movement, has been asking for a new, independent investigation into those events.  Do you think that the Obama Administration holds out any hope in this respect?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  I really hope so, but I’m skeptical. Why would the leadership of any established government willingly undertake any action that would result in a serious compromise to their authority? They will prefer to maintain the status quo and leave the things the way they are. The conductor of the train has been changed, but has the train changed its course? I doubt it. The push has to come from the public, not only domestically, but internationally, like your group is doing.

Voltaire NetworkA number of human rights and activist groups are supporting your plight, not least Peace Nobel Prize winner Adolfo Pérez Esquivel.  How have the Argentinean people in general responded to your situation?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  With an incredible outpouring of support. The military dictatorship is still fresh in the collective memory of most of the people here, along with the knowledge that the dictatorship (along with the other South American dictatorships at the time) was backed by the CIA, directed at the time by George Bush Senior. They remember well the torture centers, the secret prisons, the thousands of people “disappeared” for their opinions, the living in daily fear. They know that the United States today will do the same thing if they consider it beneficial, that they will invade a country to achieve their political and economic interests and then manipulate the media with fabricated “causus belli” to justify their conquests.

Kurt Sonnenfeld with Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Nobel Peace Prize 1980.

My family and I are honored to have Adolfo Pérez Esquivel and his advisors at Servicio de Paz y Justicia (SERPAJ) among our dearest friends. We have worked together on many causes, including the rights of refugees, the rights of women, for children without families and children with HIV/AIDS. We are also honored to have the support of  the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo; Madres de Plaza de Mayo, Línea Fundadora; Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS); Asamblea Permanente de Derechos Humanos (APDH); Familiares de Detenidos y Desaparecidos por Razones Políticas; Asociación de Mujeres, Migrantes y Refugiados Argentina (AMUMRA); Comisión de Derechos Humanos de la Honorable Cámara de Diputados de la Provincia de Buenos Aires; Secretaría de Derechos Humanos de la Nación; and the Programa Nacional Anti-Impunidad. On an international level, Amicus Curiae have been presented in our favor by REPRIEVE of Great Britain, along with the collaboration of NIZKOR of Spain and Belgium. In addition, my wife, Paula, and I have been received in the Congress by La Comisión de Derechos Humanos y Garantías de la Honorable Cámara de Diputados de La Nación.

Voltaire NetworkAs we said, deciding to write this book and to go public was a huge step.  What pushed you to do it?

Kurt Sonnenfeld:  To save my family. And to let the world know that things are not what they seem.

Voltaire NetworkLast but not least: what will you do with your tapes?

Kurt Sonnenfeld: I am convinced that my tapes reveal many more anomalies than I am capable of recognizing given my limited qualifications.  I will therefore cooperate in any way that I can with serious and reliable experts in a common endeavour to expose the truth.

Voltaire NetworkThank you very much !
