Rodriguez & Bush.


"I was a magician for thirty years… It is very easy to do misdirection, to make you look into one place while you're doing the magic with the other hand." Inferring that in plain sight, the planes struck; out of sight, bombs exploded, "It's just a big magic trick," Rodriguez concludes. "It's an illusion.”

William Rodriguez.

“It was very scary. Dave is someone who thinks he should fight for what he believes in. And I knew what he was talking about. I knew he had to have the support against the massed forces of darkness.”

Annie Machon.

"Blair was an MI5 agent. In the 1980s he'd reported on members of CND and the so-called Trotskyists in the Labour Party."

David Shayler.

"He left in 1997 and started blowing the whistle on the corruption involved. They tried to jail him but he fled (to Paris). They tried to extradite him back to England and eventually he was jailed in France. Then he came back to England and he was prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act and sent to prison basically for telling the truth. He is out now and is campaigning about 9/11,"

Mr. Stack went on.

WILLIAM RODRIGUEZ

A feature length film about William Rodriguez entitled "The Keymaster" by Mario Diaz is slated for a 2007 release by Brooklyn's Cinemar Films:

“The film is more than just the story of William’s heroism. It is also an exploration into the life of a man who struggles to stop saving others for the chance to save himself. Unemployed for three years, he was eventually evicted from his home and started sleeping under a bridge in his car at night while continuing to organize rallies and appear regularly on Spanish-language television during the day.

William’s dramatic journey is suited for a medium as powerful as his story. That is why “The Keymaster” is intended for a wide theatrical release and is being shot on High Definition video. The film is poised to impact the current documentary-friendly film market just like “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “Control Room,” and “Capturing the Friedmans” did recently. To ensure the success of this project, Cinemar Films has assembled a remarkable team of documentary professionals. Christopher Seward, the editor “Fahrenheit 9/11,” is on board, along with Director of Photography Alan Jacobsen (Sundance winner “Wet Dreams and False images”) and director Mario Diaz (“Bazooka”), who has four feature documentaries to his credit.

William Rodriguez is a native of Puerto Rico, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the State of New Jersey. On September 11th 2001, and for approximately nineteen years prior thereto, Rodriguez was employed as a maintenance worker at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York, New York.

On 9/11, Rodriguez single-handedly rescued fifteen persons from the WTC, and as Rodriguez was the only person at the site with the master key to the North Tower stairwells, he bravely led firefighters up the stairwell, unlocking doors as they ascended, thereby aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds of those who survived. Rodriguez, at great risk to his own life, re-entered the Towers three times after the first, North Tower impact at about 8:46am, and is believed to be the last person to exit the North Tower alive, surviving the building's collapse by diving beneath a fire truck.

www.911forthetruth.com/pages/Rodriguez.htm

As the founder and President of the Hispanic Victims Group, he was among the Families Advisory Council for the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. He was one of many people including the Jersey Girls who went to congress and asked for a formal investigation, the one which became the 9/11 Commission.

In December 2005, his attorney Berg proposed a 9/11 Petition to the United Nations, which calls for a Resolution to the United Nations General Assembly for an "Independent International September 11th Truth Commission".

William Rodriguez made a public statement on Nov 12th 2006 regarding the news of the Venezuelan National Assembly calling for an explanation of what really happened on 9/11 and the call that the government could be behind the attacks.

"We have worked non-stop with the officials of Venezuela to bring the truth to them. I am glad that our efforts are having the support of world leaders and we are continuing to bring the real experiences to other world leaders as well," Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez spent a month and a half in Venezuela last summer, accompanied by philanthropist Jimmy Walter and a reporter from an American newspaper, calling for international support for the victims to find the truth of what really happened and how the government of the United states failed to explain it to those affected. A vast amount of questions and Rodriguez's experiences of explosions at the basement of the North Tower before the plane hit the first tower, help fuel a 9/11 Truth movement, and the notion that the towers were imploded.

Both Rodríguez and Jimmy Walter believe that the FBI and federal government aimed at sabotaging this trip, using tactics such as including them on the no-fly list. The FBI requested the guest list of the hotel he was in, and as a result, the Venezuelan government gave him five full-time body guards.

Last Man Out of WTC Possibly Slated for Mainstream Film Documentary.

Irish film documentarian and recent Emmy winner pitching William Rodriguez to HBO and others for ground breaking 9/11 truth documentary.

By Greg Szymanski 28th Sep 2005

http://www.arcticbeacon.com/28-sep-2005a.html

Emmy winner and documentary film maker, Pat O'Mahony, is pushing hard with HBO and others to film a story of William Rodriguez, the last man out alive of the World Trade Center and declared a national hero for saving hundreds of lives.

(Irish readers might remember Pat O’Mahony as a fashion correspondent on Head to Toe. O’Mahony is a London-based freelance TV and radio producer/presenter, having left Dublin after nine years at RTE in 1998. His Reporters at War series, which he originated, developed and produced for Discovery – was shown on RTE in November 2005 – has won an Emmy award.)

"William's story needs to be told and what he has to say is a great way to lead up to the bigger story of 9/11," said O'Mahony last week in New York, a day after receiving an Emmy for his acclaimed documentary called 'Reporters at War.'

O'Mahony, recipient of his first Emmy and originally from Ireland, is now in the process of pitching the story to major studios after meeting with Rodriguez on two occasions, once in London and recently in New York.

"It has all the ingredients. The last man out alive, heroism, his fight for the truth and, of course, his interesting life starting back as a boy in Puerto Rico," said O'Mahony.

"Since day one, I have told the same story, never straying from the truth," said Rodriguez at Ground Zero at the recent 9/11 ceremony held in New York. "I am going to continue to tell my story, trying to get at the truth of what happened at the WTC since the 3,000, people who died on that tragic day, including more than 200 friends, deserve nothing less than the truth in order to preserve their dignity and honor."

"I will speak at every church and university in the country if that's what it takes to get at the truth. The government story is a lie and I know it for a fact because I was there that morning," added Rodriguez.

Besides the media censorship, the 9/11 Commission finally met with Rodriguez before releasing its 2004 report, but in the final version his story was completely omitted and his name never mentioned.

"Unless there is a cover-up, why didn't they use my comments or even mention my name," said Rodriguez, saying all the other statements were omitted from eye-witnesses in the basement who also heard the same explosion.

At one point, living under a bridge while feeling hopeless and destitute with no place to turn, he planned to tie himself to a cross in the middle of Ground Zero to prove his point. But before taking such drastic action, a Methodist support group came to his assistance, finding him shelter and providing financial assistance to get him back on his feet.

Even though he now lives more comfortably in Jersey City, his troubles haven't completely vanished. Recently, after returning from a 9/11 truth speech near Chicago, his apartment was suspiciously burglarized, the thieves taking his laptop containing personal information as well as a camera and jewelry.

The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll

A new generation of conspiracy theorists is at work on a secret history of New York’s most terrible day.

8. The Magician and the Expert.

A few days after the St. Mark’s meeting, I went to a Community Board No. 1 forum where the NIST report would be discussed. The meeting was in the Woolworth Building, the world’s tallest structure when it was completed in 1913. Since it was still standing, it seemed a good place to talk about the only former world’s tallest building(s) to fall down. I was with William Rodriguez, who, as he always does, brought along his video camera, “so they know I’m watching them.”

As a boy shining shoes in Puerto Rico, William dreamed of being wrapped in a straitjacket and suspended upside down from a flaming rope. “That was going to be my big trick. It was my goal to become a magician, the greatest illusionist in the Caribbean basin.”

ANNIE MACHON & DAVID SHAYLER.

University cancels MI5 spy's lecture due to fear of assassin

Irish Independent Wed Oct 26th 2005
http://www.unison.ie/irish_independent/stories.php3?ca=...13184

AN IRISH university has cancelled a guest lecture by former MI5 spy David Shayler over fears he could be assassinated while there. UCC last night confirmed that a speaking engagement by Mr. Shayler for the Irish 9/11 Truth Movement at the university's Boole Library will not now take place on November 12.

UCC last night played down claims of "assassination fears" with the conference organisers, but admitted it had "some security issues" with Mr. Shayler's proposed engagement. The college last night said it would be "inappropriate" to detail the exact security concerns to the Irish Independent which resulted in the cancellation of the booking.

"This was a provisional booking - we are perfectly within our rights to decline confirmation," one UCC official insisted.

DECISION

Last night, Morgan Stack of the Irish 9/11 Movement claimed that the group's members were informed by the college that the decision was taken purely on security grounds.

"I called a meeting about six weeks ago specifically to address (their) security concerns," Mr. Stack explained. "I told them that this individual, David Shayler, did have an attempt on his life about four years ago. He worked on counter-terrorism in the 1990s involving Al-Qaeda and the IRA.

"He left in 1997 and started blowing the whistle on the corruption involved. They tried to jail him but he fled (to Paris). They tried to extradite him back to England and eventually he was jailed in France. "Then he came back to England and he was prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act and sent to prison basically for telling the truth. He is out now and is campaigning about 9/11," Mr. Stack went on.

Mr. Stack has appealed for an alternative venue for the November 12 event.

The Spy Who Loved Me.

Annie Machon quit her job at MI5 and endured three years on the run - all for the sake of her partner David Shayler, who was jailed last week. She tells Stuart Jeffries why.

Friday Nov 15th 2002 The Guardian
http://www.guardian.co.uk/shayler/article/0,,840448,00.html

“It was a nightmare, especially because there were so many agencies involved - MI5, Special Branch, the RUC, GCHQ. They all had their own interests. That was why Bishopsgate happened." Shayler later claimed that MI5 could have stopped the 1993 IRA bombing of Bishopsgate in the City of London, which left one dead and 44 injured.

Why didn't you leave then? "It was very easy to get into a stasis. You have lots of friends there. But when you get to a more established section like the Middle East terrorism section and you see it's the same, then you think about quitting."

In 1995, Shayler discovered that MI6 had paid an agent who was involved in the plot to assassinate the Libyan leader, Muammar Gadafi. Why was that wrong? "Apart from the immorality of it, the general consensus from the intelligence community was that the assassination of a well-established head of state by an Islamic fundamentalist in a very volatile area was not a good idea. It was crazy, but these bozos at MI6 wanted to have a crack at him."

Why didn't you go quietly? "Well, other officers did. In the year we left, 14 officers resigned. The average figure was usually four. It was very scary. Dave is someone who thinks he should fight for what he believes in. And I knew what he was talking about. I knew he had to have the support against the massed forces of darkness.

Tony Blair Former MI5 Informant? (October 18, 2005)
http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?id=3710

An audience member asked Shayler about MI5's possible complicity in 7/7, and, if so, whether Tony Blair's government was involved or were kept in the dark. This was Shayler's response [my transcription]:

”Yeah, I mean, I don't know how involved Blair is it's a difficult question to answer. I mean, certainly I know, as I say, the intelligence services do things behind the backs of government, the cabinet and parliament it's very easy in this country to do that, as there's no oversight of the services.

But I think the only way we can explain Blair's behaviour is that he is blackmailable by the intelligence services. I know that the intelligence services have files on most of the Labour government because I saw some of the files while I was there. In fact ... [inaudible audience interjections] ...Well, one of the things I want to tell you is that I actually, I didn't see this myself, I must admit but somebody who was reviewing Blair's file, this was when Blair was unknown really, in 1992, not particularly well known, told me that Blair was an MI5 agent. In the 1980s he'd reported on members of CND and the so-called Trotskyists in the Labour Party.”

Any feedback? BTW Shayler was a SIS (MI6) operative not MI5 as written above. Curious bloke. Sheltered by the French with his girlfriend less than 50km from arrest warrents. His partner was also a MI6 spook - not that surprising - just like in the movies birds of a feather tend to flock together. Well think about it! - if you were in the smoke & mirrors world of moonrakers - smersh - jungle lairs - austin powers - dr no - mini me - killing and earwiggin you'd find it hard to settle down with a nice normal boy or girl whose idea of relaxation and switching off the mortgage worries is a martini and bit of a bop on Friday or Saturday night.
I'd be really keen to hear any sort of feedback on this talk - or know how this important campaign is getting on. 911 truth It's not the one and only factual and anomaly based approach to what occurred on that day - or for that matter how those occurrences were used a pretext for illegal war, the patriot act, erosion of liberties, guantanamo &c. or even how they proved a template for the emergence of a global terrorist threat. After all you can't have a war on terror without an enemy - can you?

"The Shaylers" (I dunno the girlfriend's name) have done a lot of work on distance and soil analysis of ground zero. In case any of you don't know - it was anomalous. The temperature and infra-red data just didn't & couldn't gel with the dossier files you can click on and read at every commercial news-site in the world. Still - coz we Irish are experts at the doubting Thomas thing (it's his sunday today) one of us must have wanted to know did "the shaylers" not go freelance or swap safety nets. It would be too tempting to think the state and apparatus that sheltered them from prosecution by the Brits didn't find time to sit them down for a chat, croissant & list their goals & objectives for the future.............. I just write that coz I remember being told they had problems paying the rent. Not really rent payer types you know. They would have preferred naturally enough a mortgage, perhaps an equity type mortgage perhaps one on fixed interest - you'd have to ask them. But one thing is certain - you wouldn't find them squatting or living in a caravan.

he was an MI5 agent. It says so on his wikipedia file http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Shayler you've no problem getting into wikipedia - curiously enough though - no one is getting a scrap out of the Clinton presidential library. Not a page on Hilary's schedule, not a page on how Osama began, not one hint of how Karl Rove's office would have configured their email before he came along or for that matter UFO's. http://www.ufomystic.com/wake-up-down-there/clinton-lib...iles/

I hope you just didn't trick me into taking the bait. Didn't indymedia put up a list of over 500 MI6 operatives a few years back? not this one obviously - [ it would get deleted under trolling or something & quite properly too! ] but one of the other sites?

really interesting bloke, he did a bit of dragon watching too. The priory of sion released some of his scrolls a bit back but they didn't spark as much interest as the judas gospels - probably because even the catholic church don't think they're "heretical" http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14658b.htm
- he dealt mostly with Jesus the buaichall óg and not the horny teenager so no reports of the first snog, he didn't even appear to go into the education much either - just loads of sweet stories about him and his da learning the chippy stuff and let's not doubt it - then as now a trade will stand you more than a degree. You can go anywhere if you're a sparkie, chippie, experienced drug trafficker or spook. I'm pushing the comment guidelines - but in answer to the last comment's allegations of a list of SIS operatives - yep of course there was - there's been a list of all the known spookies from all the major firms - it's affectionately called the "phone book" and gets regurgitated all the time but it could be a bit of date now. There was a slow-down in defections you see & one thing 911 did was galvanise.
That's a lovely trade word isn't it? g-a-l-v-a-n-i-z-e (that's its american spelling). One of the interesting allegations from an Irish point of view made in the article above is the proposition that Blair was & is himself a MI5 agent. Well that would fit in with Dr O'as if's thesis that there are for practical purposes only 2 types of state in the developed (non oriental) world.
1) a securocracy
2) a mafioacracy
The former makes more of an effort than the latter to conserve the practises of liberal democracy which it came to replace through the 1970's and as such is more reliant on media manipulation, disinformation and opinion polling and of course the "heart attack". The latter makes use of media as well but combines it with a nifty but balanced use of "bumping off" and meritocratic astoundingly successful career paths. Of course as Dr O'as if never ceases to remind people some of the most significant states oscillate between the 2 general models which has its disadvantages for the ordinary & increasingly well educated oiks whose eating patterns has convinced them they're on their piggies back. They see crises you see- where there are of course no crises at all.

But if Blair is such a character or new labouring under some horrible blackmail threat you could still get a good movie together and even (if you try hard enough) pick up a grant to do so (this week's sunday papers niggling doubt employment tip) from the Sundance people run by Robert Redford with generous support from George Soros and Noam Chomsky.

2 movies you'd want to watch to get the feel for it would include
(a) "Hidden Agenda" by Palmes d'Or winner Ken Loach which set in Ulster tells the tale of a MI5 agent sheltered by the IRA.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_Agenda_(1990_film)
(b) a Very british coup which is both a tv made movie and book by old Labour MP Chris Mullin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Very_British_Coup

Go on! do that. be the media. & make a bit of money. Just don't cogging other peoples' words - but the material is "not to be buried". You'll be thanked for it & maybe even go to Heaven.

the British Ministry of Defence published a 90 page report on what it sees as the threats to the little known "british 21st century" project a bit back. http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/story/0,,2053020,00.html
They think the middle class kids of Europe and the USA are going to become either trots or anarchists. OF course 10 years ago they were really worried the middle class kids were going become armed greenies until they realised they middle classes of the 1990's couldn't even hug a tree or burn a car without telling everyone in open assembly and email lists before hand.
But if that's true - isn't it a bit suspicious that all these well dodgey people are hanging out on our websites feeding us all this horse-shit? I'm sorry I'm not into this global workers and peasant revolution anymore - there are too many moles. I'm going to join the PD's.

I'll never visit this site again.
If it's that done and dusted that you lefty freaks are going to win - I'm on the side of the oppressed from now on. Dick Cheney was set up!!!!
Bill O Reilly is right!
