Question the 9/11 Commission Report 

Many artists, entertainers, and media professionals have publicly questioned the official account of 9/11.  Several even allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11.  This page of the website is a collection of their statements. The website does not represent any organization and it should be made clear that none of these individuals are affiliated with this website.

Listed below are statements by more than 200 artists, entertainers, and media professionals that are critical of or contradict the 9/11 Commission Report.

The concerns of these individuals, which are shared by more than 2,800 senior military officers, intelligence service and law enforcement veterans, elected and appointed government officials, engineers and architects, professors, 9/11 survivors and victim family members, and pilots and aviation professionals whose statements are also featured on this website, cannot be simply dismissed as inherently irresponsible, illogical or disloyal.

Their collective voices give credibility to the claim that the 9/11 Commission Report is tragically flawed and that a new investigation of 9/11 is necessary.

If you are an entertainment or media professional who has concerns about the 9/11 Commission Report and would like your comment added to this website, please contact me.

  • Summary of interview The Alex Jones Show 3/20/06:

    "Speaking to The Alex Jones Show on the GCN Radio Network, the star of current hit comedy show Two and a Half Men and dozens of movies including Platoon and Young Guns, Sheen elaborated on why he had problems believing the government's version of events.

    Sheen agreed that the biggest conspiracy theory was put out by the government itself and prefaced his argument by quoting Theodore Roosevelt in stating, "That we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

    "We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.

    "It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."

    Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11 as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.

    "It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning." http://www.prisonplanet.com

  • Interview Laha Magazine 2/08:

    "I have never believed the story of the destruction of the Twin Towers on 9/11.  I do not think the wars launched by the United States in Afghanistan and Iraq were the inevitable result of the 9/11 incident.  War is not the appropriate reaction to what happened on 9/11. That reaction was made under the influence of anger and hatred."  http://pdf.lahamag.com


  • CNN ShowBiz Tonight 3/27/06:

    A.J. Hammer: Well, it`s a story that SHOWBIZ TONIGHT first broke last week. Charlie Sheen`s controversial comments and statements that the government is covering up what really happened on 9/11. Tonight we have an update for you, reaction from Hollywood and from all over the country.

    Over the weekend I had the opportunity to sit down with Sharon stone. She`s always been very outspoken about her own beliefs. She commended Charlie Sheen for having the guts to speak his mind on this.

    Sharon Stone: I think if that`s what he thinks then he has every right to say that. I think people should say whatever it is that they feel in their heart, and I think it`s those who stand up and say their beliefs and challenge them in the face of authority that allows people to investigate and look for -- look at what`s happening. I think you have to be brave enough to say how you feel and stand in the face of authority and say it. That`s why we have freedom of speech."  http://transcripts.cnn.com

    I've filmed there before down at the Pentagon -- before 9/11 -- there's got to be at least 100 cameras, ringing that building, in the trees, everywhere.  They've got that plane coming in with 100 angles.  How come with haven't seen the straight -- I'm not talking about stop-action photos, I'm talking about the video.  I want to see the video.  I want to see 100 videos that exist of this. ...

  • Article The Telegraph 9/1/07 : "A Few Days in September is witty and clever, but there is a serious point behind it - with which Binoche is more than a little obsessed.  She describes it as a dramatised version of the events depicted in Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.  It alleges that various vested interests - including state security services around the world - knew what was about to happen on September 11, 2001.

    While preparing for the role Binoche had long conversations with a secret agent, who consulted on the film and on whom she modeled her character.  "Of course he could not reveal everything to me, but he said a lot," she says.  "Some things I forgot because it was just too much.  Certain things I was very amazed by and when I told people close to me about them they just wouldn't believe it.  Everything in there is true," she adds, her eyes blazing with the fervor of a conspiracy theorist.

    So is she saying the film is a dramatization of real events? "Absolutely," she says. "I went to see the Iranian ambassador at the time and he said of course it's true. Things that I thought were hidden and private… they were very open about it."  So she means the CIA and other agencies knew 9/11 was going to happen?  "Of course."  So is she saying it was an inside job?  Or that al-Qaeda was responsible?  "Everybody is responsible for it. If you only knew more, it's even more depressing." http://www.telegraph.co.uk

  • Interview aired on The Alex Jones Show 10/29/07: 

    "Actor Martin Sheen questioned the official 9/11 story, as well as the collapse of Building 7 and Larry Silverstein's "pull it" comment during an anti-war march this past weekend in Los Angeles, saying that recent revelations about the attacks had caused him to have doubts. ...

    "Up until last year, I was very dubious," said Sheen, "I did not want to believe that my government could possibly be involved in such a thing, I could not live in a country that I thought could do that - that would be the ultimate betrayal," he added.

    "However, there have been so many revelations that now I have my doubts, and chief among them is Building 7 - how did they rig that building so that it came down on the evening of the day?" said Sheen.

    Sheen also questioned the comments of Larry Silverstein, the leaseholder of the WTC complex, who told a September 2002 documentary that the decision was made to "pull" Building 7, a demolition industry term for the deliberate implosion of a structure.

    "How convenient," said Sheen, "When did they rig that building? That's the most interesting question and I have not received a satisfactory answer - nobody could give me an answer to how you rig the building - what a coincidence - two weeks prior and then bring it down on the day, that is the one thing that I have not got a sensible answer about from anyone," he concluded.

    Sheen also stated that NORAD's failure to follow its standard operating procedure on 9/11 was "something to wonder about." http://www.prisonplanet.com


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Radio interview with John Connor 2//07:

    Christine Ebersole: There are some people I work with that I think are upset about my talking about 9/11 and thinking that it was an inside job, and, you know, they're worried about my career and worried about what's going to happen and things like that.  I don’t think people really want to really take in the reality that our government could do us harm. I think that's the thing.  It's really just a matter of taking in that reality.  I think we want to look at our government as sort of like a benevolent father that’s going to take care of us and be kind to us and treat us well and I think it’s just too much for people to even conceptualize and I'm sure that’s what happened to people in Nazi Germany. ...

    Things just weren't adding up. For me it’s really hard to say, John, what’s the exact sort of epiphany that I had where I just realized that it was the government that did harm to its own people. But I think maybe what a deciding one was when my dentist sent me a link to Loose Change [9/11 documentary] and when I saw that, everything that I feared or everything that I intuitively felt was confirmed by watching Loose Change.

    John Connor:  You suspected?

    Christine Ebersole:  Yeah.  Um hmm.

    John Connor: Christine, if we were friends and you had never approached me about this subject, if I was still an ignorant zombie, how would you go about educating me?  What would you say?

    Christine Ebersole: I'd ask about World Trade Center number 7.  Number one, I think that's really to me that's the most obvious blunder.  Because Silverstein [WTC leaseholder] said publicly that we had talked with the fire department and we felt that World Trade Center 7 was so badly damaged that we decided to take it down. Or take it out.  Take it out, I guess that's the term that's used for controlled demolition.  Now you cannot put controlled demolition devices in a building in an afternoon. That's just not possible.  So, how do you -- Of course they never even ,mention that.  Then they talk about the Twin Towers collapsing.  That's never even mentioned.  It's never even brought up in the Report, the 9/11 Commission Report. So, to me -- How do you explain that?" Link to mp3 audio file

  • Open letter 4/26/04: " I would like to suggest to you emphatically that the 9-11 truth movement is the most pressing issue of the peace & justice movement today. ...

    There are many disturbing issues around 9-11 that have yet to be examined in any meaningful way by our media, Congress, and even by the 9-11 Commission. These include accountability for the massive breakdown of air defense and plane intercept procedures as described in FAA and DOD regulations, which were violated on 9-11.

    This breakdown and astounding unpreparedness by U.S. domestic defense agencies is puzzling to say the least, given the detailed reports our government had of the coming attacks, that were bizarrely suppressed by key officials. ...

    I urge all to read The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 by David Ray Griffin, and endorsed by Howard Zinn, and to view "The Great Deception" documentary by acclaimed Canadian television journalist Barrie Zwicker. ...

    We must look deeply at the events leading up to, on and since 9-11. We must demand full 9-11 truth." http://www.septembereleventh.org


  • Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11:    
    "We want truthful answers to question. …  As Americans of conscience, we ask for four things:
    • An immediate investigation by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer
    • Immediate investigation in Congressional Hearings.
    • Media attention to scrutinize and investigate the evidence.
    • The formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry." http://www.911truth.org/article

  • Interview with Xavier de Moulins 2/26/08:

    "On the Internet, one can see many films regarding conspiracy theories about 9/11.  They are enthralling, perhaps even addictive. ...

    One shows a tower, which I believe was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours.  It never collapsed.  No tower has ever collapsed [due to fire].  But within minutes, the [WTC] towers collapsed.

    And now afterward we can speculate at length about them.  Because the towers contained a lot of gold on 9/11.  And also the towers were built a long time ago, I think 1973, and to retrofit the buildings to bring them up to the current technology was much more expensive to do the work rather than simply destroy them." http://www.marianne2.fr

    "If this is your first exposure to this material, you may feel very uncomfortable with that and challenged to confront your prior assumptions about September 11th. If you have already been exposed to these issues, you'll see that there are many things that you'll want to look at.  We have a large group of gifted researchers.  Some of them have been questioning the official story of Sept. 11th from the very first days after the attacks.

    The questions these researchers have raised has been the subject of countless articles, discussions initiated by citizens in their homes. And there's been an official silence by the commercial media about these events, but we've had a tremendous impact on what people have thought. Last month, a representative poll commissioned by Zogby found that about one-half of this city's residents [New York] do not believe that the attacks came by surprise." http://video.google.com

    Rosie O'Donnell:  No, but I do believe that in the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel.  I do believe that it defies physics for the World Trade Center Tower 7, Building 7, which collapsed in on itself [Watch video.]; it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved -- World Trade Center 7.  World Trade 1 and 2 got hit by planes.  7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire.  It is physically impossible.

    Elisabeth Hasselbeck:  And who do you think is responsible for that?

    Rosie O'Donnell:  I have no idea. But to say that we don't know; that it imploded, and it was an implosion and a demolition, is beyond ignorance.  Look at the films.  Get a physics expert here from Yale from Harvard.  Pick the school.  It defies reason."

He plays the starring role of Reggie Jackson in the upcoming ESPN mini-series The Bronx is Burning.
  • Statement to this website 4/6/07:

    "I would like to respond to the question, "How could a small group within our military and government have been complicit in the terrible events of 9/11 without the entire government being aware of it?"

    My response is that the whole government would not have to be in on the alleged conspiracy for the following reason; our government is a hierarchy in which compartmentalization of knowledge is a given.  As suggested by the symbol of the pyramid, the tier below does not necessarily know everything that the tier above knows, and the tiers above that are privy to even more sensitive and "classified" intelligence and so on.  Even within common tiers you see this compartmentalization where "the left hand knows not what the right hand is doing."

    Sounds dark and conspiratorial but that's the fact.  In fact it is the official excuse given by the establishment for how such a thing as 9/11 could have happened on their watch.  It is therefore quite possible (even probable) that an operation of this magnitude could be carried out without the willful participation of the entire government. ... " Link to full statement


  • Interview with Gary Franchi, Lone Lantern Radio 3/20/07:

    "Before we even get into talking about 9/11 and everything, I just wanted to send my love and my prayers of support to our troops and to their families and especially to those that have been touched by death or have been maimed or injured and then discarded as a result of this immoral and unjust war of terror.

    And my prayers also go out, I want to say, to the victims of 9/11 and their families, and in particular the rank and file of the FDNY and the NYPD; all those heroes who fell that day or afterwards because they were told the air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe.

    And next I also really have to, need to, pay my respects to a partial list of people I think are really true patriots, whose actions and whose research are partly responsible for my own gradual awakening to the terrible reality that not only was 9/11 an inside job, but it is just the tip of a titanic fascist iceberg designed to sink our Constitution and Bill of Rights and plunge us into an abyss of unending war and untold human suffering.

    And I really think that people like Charlie Sheen, Aaron Russo, Alex Jones, obviously yourself, Gary at Lone Lantern, Professor Steven Jones, Cynthia McKinney, Dr. Robert Bowman, Ray McGovern, Sibel Edmonds, Kevin Ryan, Rosie O'Donnell, David Ray Griffin, John Connor, and of course the Loose Change crew, Corey and Dylan, and the list goes on.

    I think in the eyes of history it will be impossible for us as a country to over-esteem the significance and the profundity of your work on behalf of humanity and America, in particular.

    And that's just how important 9/11 Truth and by extension the broader issues which it underscores are.  And that's why also I've been inspired to the simple, yet I feel very empowering, act of coming on your show and adding what voice I have to the people's chorus of dissent and the demand and the desire for truth, and justice, and equality.  And eventually that peace and, God willing, a more beautiful world for our children. If we stand up now, we can do a lot to help bring that about.

    So, thank you, Gary, and thank you again to the architects and the original standard-bearers, so to speak, of 9/11 Truth.  God bless you guys for what you're doing." http://lonelantern.org

    Michelle Phillips: None of it adds up. ... There's going to be a very interesting book that comes out. ... [by] David Ray Griffin  It's called [The 9/11 Commission Report:] Omissions and Distortions.  It might already be out.  It might be something that I think everyone ought to sit down and read. ...

    The DVD that I have just seen, called Connecting the Dots, shows a close up of video taken of the [WTC] buildings coming down.  And you actually see the explosions 20 to 30 stories below the demolition wave as the buildings are coming down.  You see these puffs of smoke blowing out the floors below them.  And that's never addressed, never talked about at all. ... And you know that a steel-framed building has never, ever collapsed before or since because of fire.

    You know I think that what's really difficult is for American people to wrap their minds around the fact it is possible that our government had something to do with this attack. http://www.paulberenson.com

    Peter Lance: The second half of Cover Up is a painstaking analysis of the 9/11 Commission and it's effective whitewash. I go into great detail with evidence of

    • How the Commission was hopelessly skewed on both the right and the left;

    • How the staff was riddled with conflicts of interest -- almost half of the staff members were alumni of the very intelligence agencies they were asked to judge;

    • How both Democrats and Republicans, cherry picked evidence and limited the scope of the investigation to 1998 forward in order -- I believe -- to ignore the culpability of the FBI, CIA and other agencies for failing to stop Osama bin Laden's 12 year juggernaut;

    • How, in effect, the fix was in on this Commission from day one -- there was an intentional decision to limit the damage across three presidential administrations and eliminate ANY accountability or blame for what I call the biggest intelligence failure since The Trojan Horse." http://frontpagemag.com

  • Video interview 12/3/06:

    Interviewer: There also are conspiracy theories of huge proportions.  And you suggested we show part of or a clip of the documentary Loose Change by Dylan Avery.  And it was a film that has been watched by 10 million viewers because you could see it through the Internet, no charge.  The film sums up in a way all the theories about US government having planned the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center  But let's first watch it. [A four-minute segment from Loose Change is shown.]

    Interviewer: What do you think? Do you think it's convincing what they tell in the film?

    David Lynch: It's not so much what they say.  It's the things that -- you know -- make you look at what you thought you saw in a different light.  And those things for me that bother me: is the hole in the Pentagon being too small for a plane; the lawn isn't mussed up; and the government's not showing the plane hitting, when many cameras photographed it.

    At the World Trade Center, three buildings came down like demolition. And two of them were hit by a plane, but the third one [WTC 7] they said, 'Do you want us to pull it?'  And they pulled it and it looked just like the other two.  Those things bother me.

    [Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.]


  • In Pennsylvania, the plane that went down, it was just a hole in the ground. There wasn't any wreckage.  There wasn't any skid marks.  There wasn't any tear in the earth.  And no one's ever really found out about that. So, every place there's questions coming from this documentary.  And you don't have to believe everything in the documentary to still have questions come up.  ...

    Interviewer: And the suggestion that the American government is behind it, what does it mean?

    David Lynch: That's too big for people to think about.  It's too big.  It's like something no one wants to think about. http://www.youtube.com

They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion

They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose

  • Essay: "The media won’t ask the obvious questions.  For example, when they had loads of information coming in from several FBI agents as well as warnings from Russia, Britain and several other foreign intelligence agencies before 9/11, predicting what would happen, why were reports stifled and investigations stopped?  Investigative journalist, Greg Palast, had this to say: "There is no question we had what looked like the biggest failure of the intelligence community since Pearl Harbor but what we are learning now is it wasn't a failure, it was a directive."

    I am reading a book now called The New Pearl Harbor by David Ray Griffin.  I've been stuck in the position of ignoring my gut -- knowing things don’t stack up.  Even though our government obviously took advantage of 9/11 by making it their "Reichstag", I told myself, "Surely they weren't involved".  After reading this book I can't doubt that our government was at least complicit in allowing 9/11 to happen.  Get a copy and pass it to all your friends, the evidence is irrefutable." http://www.voiceyourself.com

  • Summary of interview The Alex Jones Show 3/27/08:

    "Top comedian and actress Margaret Cho has joined Willie Nelson and Charlie Sheen in questioning the official 9/11 story, stating that the public were going to become very angry when they realized there was a conspiracy behind the terror attacks.

    Appearing on the nationally syndicated Alex Jones Show, Cho said her doubts about 9/11 were sparked by President Bush's non-reaction to the unfolding crisis.

    "I got concerned right after 9/11 where the plane had hit the World Trade Center and he was in that classroom with all those children and they told him what was going on and he did nothing," said Cho.

    "We were attacked for the first time on American soil and he did nothing - that's when I realized there was something very very wrong," she added.

    Cho questioned the official story of what happened at the Pentagon, asking why so much footage of the twin towers being attacked was available in comparison with not even a clear picture of what occurred at the Pentagon - a far more sensitive and symbolic target.

    "Why are they not focusing on that?  What are they hiding?" asked Cho, "Of course it's going to be monitored from every angle at every second and yet we have no footage of it - it's very mysterious."

    Cho said that there was usually a conspiracy behind every major event in American history and that when the conspiracy behind 9/11 was fully uncovered, people were going to be very angry.

    The actress said that many of her Arab-American friends doubted the organizational skills of Al-Qaeda in being able to pull off the terror attacks and questioned the plausibility of the passengers on the plane not fighting back against the hijackers. " http://www.prisonplanet.com

  • Interview aired on The Alex Jones Show 10/29/07: 

    "Award winning actor Mark Ruffalo says he is "baffled" at the collapse of the twin towers and Building 7 on 9/11 and has called for re-opening the investigation into the attacks, joining Martin Sheen in publicly doubting the government's official story.

    Ruffalo's notable film roles include Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Academy Award-nominated 2000 film You Can Count on Me and most recently, 2007's Zodiac. He is a vocal critic of the Iraq war having appeared on Democracy Now and spoken at the October 2006 World Can't Wait protest in New York City.

    In an interview with We Are Change L.A. at an anti-war rally in Los Angeles this past weekend, Ruffalo said he was "baffled" with how the twin towers and Building 7 came down, but cautioned that so much information had been put out that the truth had been "stretched" and that too many people were being distracted by the more "sensational" aspects of some claims made about 9/11 that were being fostered to "discredit the movement."

    Ruffalo also slammed the 9/11 Commission Report. "The fact that the 9/11 investigation went from the moment the planes hit to the moment the buildings fell and nothing before and nothing after I think makes that investigation completely illegitimate," said Ruffalo.

    "If you're gonna do a crime investigation, you have to find motive....and we didn't follow that, it was quickly pushed away," he added.

    Ruffalo concurred that the immediate interference in the crime scene as well as the initial appointment of Henry Kissinger to head the 9/11 Commission were obvious signs that the investigation was compromised, mandating a re-opening of the inquiry." http://www.prisonplanet.com

    The Reflecting Pool is an intense, sobering investigation into the most controversial tragedy of our time. Drawn from established sources and based on verifiable facts, The Reflecting Pool is a thought-provoking study of a search for truth and the profound consequences of not looking for it any further than the nightly news.

    The Reflecting Pool is the first investigative drama to present these issues in the spirit of such films as All the President’s Men and JFK."

    "It's time to tell a story like this; the initial shock of the tragedy and the co-opted invasion of Iraq made it taboo for many to even question what really happened. Too painful and disturbing. The country was in shock. But now, after nearly five years of controversial war, we have gained new perspective and can ask hard questions," said Joseph Culp. http://www.reflectingpoolfilm.com

    Heather Thomas:  I'm going to go this far: There was no fuselage at the Pentagon.  There was none that you could check out.  They said it vaporized, and yet they produced bodies saying that they didn't vaporize.  You can vaporize a two-ton engine?  I don't think so.  And a lot people say they closed the Twin Towers for weekends on end (directly before 9/11) and wouldn't even let the security people in there (because they were setting it up for demolition.)  You can listen to this stuff, the knowledge is out there.  You can see the pictures of the Pentagon (destruction).  It's a solid hole.  No airplane does damage like that.  It was a bomb.

    Ryan Stewart:  You just want to put him behind you, then?

    James Cromwell:  Put Cheney in jail.  That would be more appropriate.  I do believe that if that woman [Charlotte Dennett] wins in Vermont, the attorney general, she will.  Bugliosi's book is the blueprint for how.

    I believe that what happened on September 11th was a crime against the American people and should have been pursued by law enforcement in a rational way.  Then we would have Osama bin Laden -- if in fact Osama bin Laden is responsible -- behind bars.

    It was used as an excuse for a coup -- the second in my lifetime, the first one being at the death of JFK.  This is the second coup, the destruction of American democracy.  We need the men who have perpetrated this coup behind bars where they belong, as a lesson to other despots, that they cannot behave this way.  http://suicidegirls.com

  • Co-narrator of the documentary Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11  10/26/07:

    " 'Bullshit invented by a general' is how Nobel Prize winner for Literature Dario Fo describes the official version of the attacks on the Twin Towers.  The actor and director is convinced of this version of events in no uncertain terms, and this version is told in Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11, the documentary by Claudio Fracassi and Francesco Trento, which has been submitted to the Rome film festival.

    Fo, with Lella Costa, Moni Ovadia and Gore Vidal, is one of the narrators of the film, which is not fiction, and is the result of an investigation by Giulietto Chiesa [Member of Parliament of the European Union], that provides witness accounts and reconstruction of events which cast doubt on the official version of 9/11 provided by the USA. ...

    The playwright explains "The authors of Zero did not begin the project with preconceived ideas but instead created the documentary based on the truths that emerged.  What they ask of you is to watch the film critically."

    Fo says, "As far as 9/11 is concerned, some of the situations we have been told are not only unlikely but also grotesque.  They sound like a General's bullshit, who is normally capable of very crooked inventions, also thanks to the funny cap he wears".  He also added, "Ever since Kennedy's murder I have used the unlikely explanations given by the US Government on some events as material for four of my shows; they are sometimes really an insult to people's intelligence." http://www.agenziaradicale.com

– Emmy Award-winning actor, narrator, and author.  Acted in over 90 films and has narrated over 120 documentaries.  Author of the memoir, Sleeping Where I Fell (2004).

  • Interview with Paul Thompson, author of The Terror Timeline; A Comprehensive Chronicle of the Road to 9/11 2/10/07:

    Peter Coyote:  As the Village Voice newspaper puts it, Paul Thompson's Timeline is based on public documentation of what we know.  It almost has to be taken more seriously than the 9/11 Commission Report because it's open.  There's nothing secret here. ...

    When did you first get the idea that maybe these weren't casual mistakes that were going on; that information was actually being suppressed?

    Paul Thompson: Well, like I said, my first reaction was finding these articles that I found were really fascinating coming out in reputable newspapers but really getting buried.  I think that the problem first began with the media coverage. ...  People were getting a really skewed view of events. ... There really wasn't that kind of critical analysis, I think, to really ask "Why did these attacks happen?", "Why were they successful?" and all the way until today I don't think we've really had that conversation as a nation.

    Peter Coyote: ... Why do you think the administration has tried so hard to prevent an investigation?

    Paul Thompson: ... As we've seen in the film [9/11: Press for Truth] there are quite a lot of things that don't look good for the Bush Administration. ...

    Peter Coyote: ... According to a July poll, this year [2006], conducted by Scripps News Service, 1/3 of Americans, 1/3, think the government either carried out the 9/11 attacks or intentionally allowed them to happen in order to provide a pretext for war in the Middle East. ...

    Paul Thompson: Another study, I would also point out, came out recently, another poll is, I think, only 16% of the people when polled pretty much agreed with the U/S government view of what happened on 9/11, for instance the attacks basically couldn't be stopped, and so forth.   So, you have almost 85% of the people have some level of doubt about that story. ...

    Peter Coyote: Is it possible that the administration and the government and the media are serving a deeper purpose that perhaps the people themselves don't really want to know? ...

    You found lots of links between the administration and the Saudis and the bin Laden family.  And I can remember a story about a certain number of Arab being spirited out of the country on a CIA plane.  And business relationship between the Bushes and bin Laden.  How did you discover this stuff and why do you think the leads were not followed?

  • Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

    "Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

    They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

    Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

    We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

    We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media."


  • Interviewed on The Alex Jones Show 4/2/08:

    "Appearing on The Alex Jones Show, Ventura said that his initial reaction to 9/11 was much like most people at the time, and he accepted the official story outright, a response he now regrets because he was in a position of power and could have used it to raise a lot of pointed questions.

    "I kicked myself when it initially happened that the light didn't go off but I was so shocked that this thing had even taken place that I apologize for not being more aware," said Ventura, adding that watching Loose Change at the insistence of his son was part of the catalyst for his wake up call.

    Host Alex Jones is executive producer of Loose Change (get it here), the most watched Internet movie of all time. Ventura said he ran through a rollercoaster of emotions when he saw the film.

    "When I finally did watch it I went through every emotion you could imagine, from laughing, crying, getting sick to my stomach, to the whole emotional thing," said the former Governor.

    "To me questions haven't been answered and are not being answered about 9/11," said Ventura, before highlighting the collapse of Building 7, a 47-story tall skyscraper that was not hit by a plane but collapsed in its own footprint in the late afternoon of September 11.

    "Two planes struck two buildings .... but how is it that a third building fell 5 hours later?" asked Ventura, "How could this building just implode into its own footprint 5 hours later - that's my first question - the 9/11 Commission didn't even devote one page to that in their big volume of investigation," added the former Governor.

    Ventura then explored how it was possible that all three buildings could rapidly collapse at almost free fall speed.

    "How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity - if you put a stopwatch on them, both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds - how can that be?" asked Ventura.

    "If you took a billiard ball and dropped it from the height of the World Trade Center in a vacuum it would hit the ground in 9.3 seconds and if you took that same billiard ball and dropped it 10 stories at a time and merely stopped it and started it it would take 30 seconds - if you dropped it every floor of the World Trade Center to the ground, simply stopping and starting it on gravity it would take over 100 seconds to reach the ground," he surmised.

    Having undergone Basic Underwater Demolition Seal training, Ventura is speaking from an experienced standpoint and he unequivocally stated that he thought the buildings were deliberately imploded.

    "Upon looking at the film in super-slow motion and the way the buildings fell and comparing that to the way that they do like a controlled demolition of a hotel in Las Vegas, they both fell identical."

    "I did watch the film of Building 7 going down and in my opinion there's no doubt that that building was brought down with demolition," said the former Governor.

    Ventura also questioned the lack of wreckage outside of the Pentagon after Flight 77 allegedly struck the building.

    "When I was watching Loose Change with a friend of mine - he happens to work for a company that helps build the Boeing airplanes and they said that when the engines completely disappeared and were destroyed, his response was, excuse my French - bullshit!," said Ventura.

    "I turned to him and said why and he said because they're made of titanium steel - they can't disintegrate." http://prisonplanet.com


  • Video interview The Alex Jones Show 9/26/06:

    "The thing I question on 9/11 was simply the fact; where were our planes?  When all this was going on and planes were being hijacked an hour apart and there were four of them  They cover about a six-hour space.  At no time, to my knowledge, did we have any fighter planes up in the air.  Why? ...

    In light of the fact that there was a cover-up that got us into the Viet Nam war and there was, in my opinion, a cover-up of John Kennedy's assassination, I would just say that I don't believe it's beyond reason to not at least consider that the government certainly would do things like that." http://www.infowars.com/articles


  • Interview Black Op Radio 8/20/04:

    "At first, again, I wanted to believe 9/11, you know. But the problem I have with 9/11 is just a real simple one. I'm trying to figure out -- and of course they're now attempting to answer it somewhat -- how we could have failed so miserably in not having air defense. ...

    And the problem I have with 9/11 is that. Where the heck was our defense? Who was sleeping at the wheel? While all of these planes... I mean, I've been to air traffic control when I was Governor, and you've got a dozen people there looking at these dials, watching every plane in their sector. They know where it's going and they know what direction it's supposed to be going

    Now, how is it that these planes were able to be hijacked at half hour intervals, turned directly opposite the way they're supposed to be going and no bells went off, no emergency sirens went off, no fighter jets were scrambled? Just what the hell happened in that area of time?! And that's the part that troubles me about 9/11. ...

    I mean here's the Pentagon, the head of our military. How was this plane able to circle the city of Baltimore [sic] at least once, picking out a target, and then drive into it, and we didn't have -- nothing up in the air? There wasn't one scrambled fighter jet up there to defend in any way, shape, or form?" http://www.libertypost.org

    Esai Morales:  Hi, I'm friends with William Rodriguez.  He heard the explosions before the planes hit   His friend's skin [Felipe David] was hanging off and he had come from the basement.  This is a false flag operation.  It was planned.  It's too many coincidences.

    This is my feeling.  When I saw the buildings go down, I knew something was wrong.  And then when Building 7 went down --  Do you know how long it takes to rig a building?

    "Oh, we decided to pull it."  Thank you Larry Silverstein.  Who's we?  And when you decided to "pull it", how soon afterwards was it down?  So you must have pre-rigged it?  Is that where the CIA and the FBI kept all the information?  Is that maybe the building that had all the evidence of their involvement?    At the scene of a crime, how do you get rid of the evidence and cart it to China?   You know, the molten metal and all that sort of things?  It is a bunch of bullshit.   http://www.youtube.com


  • [Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.]

  • Essay WTC 1 and 2: Justice and 9/11 Demands Accountability. Forensic Evidence Indicates Presence of Controlled Demolition Material 9/10/10:

    "It was so painful for me as my wife Lil and I watched the events of September 11, 2001 on television. Seeing a plane hit the World Trade Center (WTC) North Tower at 8:46, then a second plane hit the South Tower at 9:02. Shortly, we saw the firefighters and other first responders courageously going into the buildings hoping to extinguish the fires, but it was impossible to foresee what followed.

    Then we watched in shock as nearly a dozen people were jumping from the upper floors to their deaths.

    We felt profound horror at 9:59 as the South Tower cascaded in freefall into its own footprint, and then 29 minutes later when the North Tower came down in the same impossible freefall way.

    The new forensic evidence which is being released today by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth demonstrates the presence of controlled demolition materiel in the World Trade Center buildings One and Two. ...

    One thing I know is that the official government story of those events, as well as what took place that day at the Pentagon, is just that, a story. This story is not the truth, but far from it.  

    I was born on October 12, 1932. I am announcing today that I will be consuming only liquids beginning Sunday until my eightieth birthday in 2012 and until the real truth of what truly happened on that day emerges and is publicly known."

    Jason Bermas:  What's your view on 9/11?  We've had people like Willie Nelson, Jesse Ventura, Senators, Congressmen come on and doubt the official version.  Do you doubt the official version of 9/11, Tommy?

    Tommy Chong:  Oh, absolutely, absolutely.  There are so many horror stories about 9/11 that have been kept quiet.  It'll be like the Kennedy assassination.  Years later we'll find out the truth.

    Jason Bermas:  What do you think some of the biggest inconsistencies of the official version are?

    Tommy Chong:  Well, the biggest inconsistency is the fact that, "Who was allowed to fly after everything was shut down?"  It was the Bin Laden's. ...

    Tommy Chong:  The powers that be, they're perverting justice. And we get outraged because we believe in the Constitution and all that.  But there was even reports about Pearl Harbor being a setup.  At least they knew that it was coming and they could have done a lot more than what they did to stop it.  But they needed Pearl Harbor in order to launch the bigger war and that was the same as 9/11.  It it wasn't for 9/11, we wouldn't have had Bush in the White House.

    Jason Bermas:  I agree with you there. And then you have the Project for a New American Century, which is this neocon think tank, including Cheney and Wolfowitz, and people like Dan Quayle where they actually call for this "New Pearl Harbor" in a document called Rebuilding America's Defenses, only three months before the [9/11] attacks where they say they need it in order to transform the Middle East or Eurasia

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

  • Radio Interview by Carol Brouillet 5/28/07:

    Regarding his experience on September 11 and 12, 2001, while making his documentary on the office of the Presidency, Follow The Leader.

    "What had happened, Carol, to me was that I had wanted to make a documentary on the United States Presidency.  And at the time I decided I wanted to make that film, George Bush was just entering his first term.

    So, I wanted to do a documentary that showed the backstage view of the Presidency; how it operated; how the people around him operated to make his office of the President function.  It's very - it's a brilliant office, you know, if you have the right person in there who is living up to the ideals and morals that the office demands and leads the country in the way that it should be led.

    So, I started to call the White House, and the Secret Service, and some Senators.  And I got a lot of people involved in the film.  And I went to Washington with my partner, Marianne [Quinn], and we made the film. ...

    And it was very successful.  I even did a school tour on it later on.  Toured the country, showed the film talking about what it was like to work in the White House with all these people who played such a big part in history during their President's reign, whoever they were working for.  It was a wonderful film to make.  I totally enjoyed it.  And I did it out of pure patriotism.  I thought the office of the Presidency was great.  I still do.

    And we went, of course, to Washington to make the film.  We were there for many months doing this.  And on 9/11, we had just began -- We decided to do our post-production in Washington DC because I had been promised a sit-down interview with the President three times.  It was always cancelled.  So I said "Let's do the post-production in Washington, that way when the White House calls, I'll still be here and I can go over and do the interview."

    Well, 9/11 happened on the very first day that we started to do our post-produciton.  And, of course, that took care of thinking about doing any interviews with the President at that time.

    But on 9/12, my partner and I, Marianne, went over to the Pentagon.  And I said, "We're not going to be able to get near this. We'll just get to drive by as close as we can.  I just wanted to see it."

    Well, we got closer than I ever thought.  We parked on top of the hill where this apartment building was and we walked down to right at the edge of the freeway.  And right across the freeway was the Pentagon -- the crash site.

    So, I'm standing there looking at it and I'm quiet.  And I didn't say anything.  And -- I don't know after a little while -- I was in shock.  And I turned to Marianne and I said, "Something's really wrong here."  She said, "What?"  And I said, "Well."  I said, "Everything.  The grass isn't scorched.  There's no big hole where this would have impacted.  How come there's all these trees still up?  Lampposts where they shouldn't be are still up."

    The ground wasn't torn up. Not one bit.  The opening where the 757 allegedly hit was ridiculously small.  There was no debris of any sort.  Nothing.  There was nothing there.

    And I said, "How could a 757 have crashed into this building?"  I said, "It's impossible."  I said, "In the first place, we shouldn't even be allowed to be here.  This should be all blocked off as a crime scene, looking for evidence, pieces of the plane."  I said, "Nothing makes sense." ...

    A few days later, I thought, "Wait a minute here.  If the Pentagon was a hoax and a 757 didn't plow into that as they said it did, that whole thing was preconceived.  All of the Pentagon was.  And that would have had to have meant that New York was pre-planned with the same sort of deception that Washington was." starting at 11:10 of second hour at http://mp3.wtprn.com/Brouillet

Everything was kept as "evidence", and therefore made secret!? No evidence of anything has been made public. We're supposed to believe that the "government" has our best interest at heart and had nothing to do with the cause.

  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Interview The Alex Jones Show 7/12/06:

    "Linklater also says that his efforts to disseminate documentaries which point the finger at the US government for involvement in 9/11 have changed paradigms for several A-list Hollywood stars - including Bruce Willis.

    During a nationally syndicated radio interview, Linklater told host Alex Jones that the actions of the Bush administration were, "The most extreme I've seen in my lifetime - in American history - this kind of executive branch grab of power is so unprecedented - it's frightening." ...

    Linklater said he had handed out Alex Jones DVD's on set which carried claims that 9/11 was perpetrated by the US government to erect a police state to Bruce Willis, one of the stars of Linklater's upcoming Fast Food Nation.

    "He said it put him in such a head space that he will be quiet on issues of national policy."

    Linklater said Willis had told him in an e mail that the videos had changed his entire political paradigm.

    "Bruce is a pretty thinking radical kind of guy," said Linklater." http://www.prisonplanet.com

  • Interview with Gene Lavanchy on Fox 25 Boston 3/20/07:

    Gene Lavanchy: Do you think this movie resonates now more with the film audience, especially in the United States based on, you know, it's post-9/11 and there's sort of, I think, a distrust with the government?

    Antoine Fuqua: I believe it's something to identify with because we still don't have answers to a lot of events that really affected us in a major way and changed -- sort of killed the innocence, so to speak, after 9/11.  Why did that happen?  I don't think anybody really still knows exactly why, exactly what was the motive for that and where that came from.  Why are we in Iraq? ...

    What I'm trying to say is that no matter what side you're on, you know and I know we've got some bad weeds in our garden.  You know that.  If they continue to get away with what they're doing, the very people we train to go and kill and destroy, it can create anarchy. http://www.myfoxboston.com

  • Video: "I'm very familiar with the 9/11 Truth movement.  And I'm totally convinced that 9/11 was a fraud.  There's no doubt in my mind about that.  At first I didn't want to believe it.  It's such an ugly thing to believe. ...

    Most people believe that two buildings fell down that day in New York. ... Three buildings went down that day, not two.  And the third building was called Building number 7.  And that was a 47-story office tower.  It was pretty big.  It wasn't as big as the Twins, but it was still enormous.   If you've ever seen the tape of it falling, you realize it's a controlled demolition.  It came straight down.  Like you see those building in Vegas come down. ... 

    He [Larry Silverstein, the building owner] said the Fire Department decided to pull it.  Meaning to bring the building down.  That's what he said.  Now, that was a big mistake on his part.

    If you know anything about controlled demolitions you know for a building that size, it would take weeks, weeks to control demolition that building; to plant explosive on all the floors in all the right places.  You couldn't do it in four or five hours. ...

    So, once you know that, and he admitted it was controlled demolition, then you realize that that building had been set up weeks, for weeks in advance of 9/11 ever happening. ...

    If it was planned weeks in advance, then 9/11, the Twin Towers, was planned weeks in advance. It can't be any other way.  And that's why the official government report of 9/11 never mentions Building 7.  Because they have no explanation. They have no cover story.  The other cover story is, 'Oh, the planes hit it, so it went down', which by the way, can't be either.  But rather than getting into all the details, Building 7 is the obvious answer.  

    So, when you ask me about 9/11 Truth movement, yes, I believe that and I believe it shows how evil and corrupt our government is." At 11:45 of the segment at http://video.google.com/

  • Essay 9/5/06: "Which brings us to 9/11 and its conflicting theories: ...

    [I]t was the Bush Administration that first rolled out its own conspiracy theory: the "Al-Qaeda did it" conclusion. It seemed so obvious. "They" conspired. "They" planned it. "They" hijacked the planes. "They" crashed them into buildings--except when they didn't.

    And the media bought it and recycled this storyline endlessly in print, radio and TV, as part of a relentless scattershot chronicle of demonization filled with contradictions and omissions that at different times included the Saudis, the Pakistanis, the city of Dubai, Saddam Hussein and just about every Immam and Mullah out there. ...

    This is the official narrative repeated without pause, legitimated by the 9/11 Commission, signed, sealed and delivered. It is always offered up as ‘just the facts, ma’am’ "real story" by some self-styled "terrorism expert."

    Yet, as South African writer Nadine Gordimer recognizes, "the facts are always less than what happened."

    Other "facts" soon began dribbling out, unofficial facts to contradict the official ones. They added up to "Inconvenient Truths" as in the gospel according to Al Gore. And suddenly two new theories offered a widely believed "counter-narrative"...

    The first is the incompetence theory ... [F]ailures to act despite as many as 60 warnings, fatally flawed intelligence procedures, agencies not communicating or consciously deceiving each other and themselves, of billion dollar Air Defense Systems not defending the country ...

    Beyond all this is the Bush Did It counter-conspiracy theories propounded in different form on a thousand books, websites, and films like Loose Change that claim to "connect the dots" by identifying the long and nefarious hand of government complicity -- not just duplicity -- behind 911. ...

    It seems clear that even if the government did not prepare 911, they were prepared to use it to political advantage and to have it economically benefit their many donors and "partners." ...

    In the weeks ahead, let us call for the media, that part of it anyway that is least compromised to shed prior assumptions and safe conclusions and become open to investigating all these narratives as some did finally about the phony claims of WMD’s in Iraq. http://www.commondreams.org

  • Personal blog 9/12/06: "[W]here do we find ourselves, and where do we go from here, on the long, confusing, circuitous and still ever-painful path from 9/11?

    To answer that question, we first must come to understand truly what happened in and to America five years ago, how it happened, and — most important – why. ...

    A logical starting point, and something that some family members spoke out for at a recent press conference in Washington, D.C., is to support calls for a new, reopened, and non-partisan investigation. There is little doubt that that the 9/11 Commission Report has become the Warren Commission report of our time – a fatally flawed official examination that ended up raising more questions than it answered, owing to a toxic brew of politics, partisanship, personal agendas and presidential obstruction. ...

    Both [Chairman Thomas] Kean and his Democratic Party counterpart Lee Hamilton now acknowledge that the Pentagon didn't play straight with them, and that they and their fellow commissioners bowed to political pressure when didn't fully question New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani about his management decisions and emergency responses. Other commissioners complained repeatedly about White House obstacles put in their path – yet the commissioners chose to issue their report nonetheless, even in the face of staff objections that there wasn't enough time to follow all leads. The commissioners also allowed the President and Vice President to testify together—and not under oath—and went along with other Administration demands, such as the one that only a minority of the commissioners could see a minority of the documents requested – and even then had to vet their notes with the White House before sharing them with the full Commission! ...

    At the risk of stating the obvious, let me conclude by noting that we can never move beyond 9/11 until we obtain a fuller understanding of the events of that day and what underlies them. And until we have a complete, thorough and non-partisan investigation, that will never happen. We must continue to ‘press for truth’ in connection with the events of September 11, 2001 — for we still don’t know the true ‘path to 9/11,’ and until we do, we can never find the path from 9/11." http://www.roryoconnor.org

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

  • Statement to this website 4/7/09: 

    "When I view the images of September Eleventh, I see the aftermath of contained, controlled demolition devices that denuded downtown New York City like a new Nagasaki!  At the end of one day, three meg-skyscrapers had disappeared below ground level, pulverized into toxic dust leaving curiously cut and strangely shaped scrap metal.  Also at the end of that same day, trillions of dollars missing at the Pentagon the day before are forgotten;  the Enron and Worldcom records are tragically destroyed; billions in gold bullion are gone; bits of body parts are found on buildings hundreds of yards away from the epicenter; and the rusted vehicles for blocks around "Ground Zero" remain inexplicable!

    There is a happy ending to this tale, too.  It has been reported all seven buildings were insured in April 2001 by landlord Larry Silverstein through the first ever anti-terrorist insurance policy.  He collected over 2 billion dollars and the right to rebuild the Freedom Towers.  Another happy ending indeed!

    Seven from one blow!  Sept d'un Coup.  Another giant story.

    Past generations of Americans have commemorated those who sacrificed their lives creating historic moments.  We have gone forth into battle crying: "Remember the Alamo!"  Remember the Maine!"  "Remember the Lusitania!"  "Remember Pearl Harbor!"  And more recently we all yelled, "Remember 9/11! 

    We do indeed need to remember September Eleventh, but not for the reason fabricated.  We must remember it because the giants are telling the tales now."

  • Letter to The Guardian 2/13/07: Response to an article by George Monbiot

    "George Monbiot's explicit attack on the film Loose Change has no basis in fact. While we accept that there are flaws in the current version of the film, we stand by its overarching theme that the official "conspiracy" theory of 9/11, constructed in the hours, days, weeks and months after 9/11, is false.

    In uncritically endorsing the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report, Monbiot neglects to say that the collapse mechanism for the entire World Trade Centre building was never documented by NIST - it didn't see it as its job. Additionally, in accepting that the towers collapsed at virtually free-fall speed ("the weight of the collapsing top storeys generated a momentum the rest of the building could not arrest"), Monbiot shows no awareness that this explanation violates the law of conservation of momentum. ...

    [A]cceptance of the official "conspiracy" theory is not a left or right political issue. It is about whether we should accept unconditionally a story which defeats the laws of physics, denies the abundance of witness testimony, and rejects video evidence put forward by an organisation, which, in hindsight, we know had the means, motive and opportunity, and also has a record of being economical with the truth."  http://www.guardian.co.uk

  • Writer, director, and star of the film, The Reflecting Pool, the first investigative drama to challenge the official version of the 9/11 attacks.

    The Reflecting Pool is an intense, sobering investigation into the most controversial tragedy of our time. Drawn from established sources and based on verifiable facts, The Reflecting Pool is a thought-provoking study of a search for truth and the profound consequences of not looking for it any further than the nightly news.

    The Reflecting Pool is the first investigative drama to present these issues in the spirit of such films as All the President’s Men and JFK.”

    “All of us, from the victims’ families to the troops, to you and me, are still dealing with what happened on 9/11.  The Reflecting Pool is a way of taking stock of what’s happened to our country and do the most American thing of all—ask questions and demand honest answers.” said Director Jarek Kupsc. http://www.reflectingpoolfilm.com


  • Radio interview by Carol Brouillet on We The People Radio Network 8/6/07:

    Regarding his new movie, The Reflecting Pool, a fictional account of characters investigating the events of 9/11.  “The Loose Change documentary which was a big breakthrough for the Movement, 9/11 Truth Movement. … It brought the issue to a much, much, much larger audience.  It’s a great achievement for those guys.  I felt like doing something for the layman and telling a story, creating a couple of characters who go after the [9/11] story. …

    There are two guys, one of whom is a writer, a journalist, who very reluctantly accepts an assignment to do a story on 9/11 and he’s very skeptical.  He doesn't believe the government was behind the attacks.  And he gets a partner, who is a father of a 9/11 victim, who has devoted his life for the past five years to track down the killers; the real killers. … The characters engage in a series of interviews and deal with the most prominent issues that are questionable about 9/11. 

    Hopefully, people will not only appreciate the facts, which are obviously based on our research, but also get into the human element of the story.  What does it take to go after the truth that has been hidden from public view?  What does it take for a victim, for a father of a victim to relive the trauma every time he gets a witness that he interviews or relives the same story over and over again?  What does it take to really be able to convince the readers, or the viewing public that there is something wrong about the official version of the [9/11] event?”  http://mp3.wtprn.com

  • Essay 1/18/08: 

    "Even the co-chairs of the 911 commission have disowned it. A white wash at the behest of the White House, the 911 report is propaganda by committee, the mere imprimatur of legitimacy to cover up official lies. It is lipstick on a pig. ...

    Watch the trailer: Able Danger. It's the story of the biggest cover up in American, world history. The obvious question -- never asked by the American media -- if Bush's official conspiracy of 911 were, in any way or in any part true, then why has it been necessary to quash all investigations, destroy evidence, in fact, cover up one of the most heinous crimes in world history?"  http://existentialistcowboy.blogspot.com/


  • Online comment 1/18/08:

    "Bush lied and is lying now about 911. The 'official theory' is full of holes and inconsistencies. It is most certainly a lie, a cover story told to hide the 'pipeline' motive for war against Afghanistan and the oil motive for war against Iraq. The Bush administration had all three -- method, motive, opportunity. ... There is probable cause right now to indict George W. Bush, Condo Rice, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and John Ashcroft for the gestalt of crimes that are called collectively: 911!!!!"  http://www.opednews.com

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates  hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.  We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Online comment 4/8/08:

    "It has been noted that one of two possibilities exists. Either Ted Olsen lied or he was fooled into believing that the voice he heard was really that of his wife. But, does not the FBI’s claim that there NO calls made from Flight 77 prove that he was lying. Of course it makes no difference anyway since the MSM or any politician can be expected to even raise the question. Until Cheney and Bush are examined under oath and confronted with all the contradictions in the official story, there is little chance that we will ever learn the truth." http://niqnaq.wordpress.com

  • Interview The Alex Jones Show 2/4/08:

    Alex Jones:  What's your take on 9/11?  Do you question the official story?

    Willie Nelson:  I certainly do.  And I saw those towers fall and I've seen an implosion in Las Vegas.  There's too much similarities between the two.  And I saw the building fall [Building 7] that didn't get hit by nothing.  So, how naive are we?  What do they think we'll go for?

    Alex Jones:  Are you saying you started having questions -- the little voice in your head -- I mean did you have a bad feeling the day it happened?  Is that what you're saying?

    Willie Nelson:  The day it happened.  I saw one fall and it was just so symmetrical.  I said, "Wait a minute, I just saw that last week at the casino in Las Vegas."  And you see these implosions all the time and the next one fell and I said, "Hell, there's another one."  And they're trying to tell me that an airplane did it?  And I can't go along with that.

    It then cuts to Eminem standing before a wall collaged with newspaper clippings and photos featuring headlines about Bush's foreknowledge of 9/11 (including the famous BUSH KNEW New York Post headline); the civil rights abuses of the PATRIOT Act; maltreatment of soldiers; war profiteering and even the Illuminati's all-seeing eye." http://www.libertythink.com

They tell you to listen, but they don't really tell you they mission
They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion
Even though Bin Laden, was a CIA tactician
They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose
Fahrenheit 9/11, that's just scratchin' the surface
Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects ...
Bush knocked down the towers ...

    Understand the label "conspiracy theory" is a tactic that the media often invokes to immediately discredit voices of dissent and people who seek truth.  The tactic of creating manufactured enemies for personal gain has been around for as long as there have been conflicts.  Of course there's no concrete proof of a conspiracy - the media would never allow that - but rather an abundance of evidence that points to a conspiracy on behalf of US interests." http://www.guerrillafunk.com

    The outspoken singer says, "September 11 is clearly an inside job, there's massive evidence that suggests that it was either allowed to happen or even worse, deliberately made to happen.

    "There was a document called Project For The New America Century which was made by neo-Con (right wing) writers in the 90s who supplied most of the agenda that (George W) Bush is putting into place now, which clearly says, 'We need a Pearl Harbor-level of event so we can have an excuse to invade the Middle East." http://www.femalefirst.co.uk

           and though I wasn't the closest
           I saw them crumble to the earth?
           like they were full of explosives

    Tech released the song Bin Laden featuring which is the most blunt, direct song for 9/11 Truth in history.  No one has tackled the topic of 9/11 Truth with more ferocity than Tech.  Tech managed to pull in another prominent hip-hop star into the 9/11 Truth fold, Mos Def, who is featured on the song's chorus.

– Guitarist and vocalist of Angels and Airwaves.  Formerly with the bands Blink-182 and Box Car Racer.

  • Summary of radio interview with James Fetzer 5/14/06:

    "Blink 182 star Tom DeLonge has followed in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen by becoming the latest celebrity to publicly doubt the official version of events behind 9/11 and voice his belief that the attacks were an inside job.

    DeLonge is the lead singer in Blink 182, a southern Californian punk/pop quartet that has had two US Billboard number one selling albums and whose 1999 album Enema of the State went platinum five times over.

    During a hosting spot on a San Diego’s KAVA-FM radio station, DeLonge talked with Professor James Fetzer about evidence of 9/11 inside involvement.

    "We do know that the buildings came down in a fashion extremely similar to a controlled demolition of a building - we do know that expertise that is needed to fly those gigantic planes into that exact location could never have been achieved by someone that just learned how to fly a small plane, said DeLonge."

    Discussing the failure of NORAD to enact standard operating procedure and intercept the planes and Norman Mineta's testimony about Cheney's orders 'still standing' - DeLonge stated, "Cheney knew that the planes are coming in and he capped the order to leave it alone so it could hit."

    "It's so weird how our own government did it to us, 9/11 was not perpetrated by a bunch of people that just learned how to fly planes," said DeLonge."  http://www.infowars.com

why are they so afraid to answer a few questions?
This story does not add up.

I'm on a mission to never forget
3,000 people that I've never met
We want some answers and all that we get
Some kind of s**t about a terrorist threat
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies

I'm on a mission to dig up the truth
You think we're stupid and there’s no proof
Well let me tell you that the time has come
To pull the trigger on the smoking gun
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies ...

America has been hijacked
Not by Al Qaeda, not by Bin Laden
But by a group of tyrants.
That should be of great concern to all Americans.

  • Performance in Support of the New York City Ballot Initiative for a New Investigation into 9/11  7/17/08:

    Group founder and lead vocalist, Speech: "All they need is a lot signatures because they want to do another investigation on 9/11 to see what really happened.  And I think it's important because there's really been no official investigations, as done by a neutral party about what's been going on. ...  Sign the petition and try to get some understanding, some truth with this." http://www.911blogger.com/node/16725


  • Supporters of the New York City Ballot Initiative for a New Investigation into 9/11 11/08:

    "Petition to Create a NYC Independent Commission with Subpoena Power to Conduct a Comprehensive and Fact-Driven Investigation of All Relevant Aspects of the Tragic Events of September 11, 2001 and Issue a Report.

    WHEREAS, many New York City voters believe that there remain many unanswered questions critical to establishing the truth about all relevant events leading up to, during and subsequent to the tragic attacks occurring on September 11, 2001 (“9/11”), and

    WHEREAS, no prior investigation by any New York City agency or any other governmental entity has resulted in the citizens being provided with those critical answers or information necessary to establish the truth about those tragic events, ...

    An independent, temporary New York City commission (the “Commission”) is hereby created to conduct a comprehensive, factdriven investigation into the events that took place on 9/11, as well as to thoroughly examine related events before and after the attacks, including any activities attempting to hide, cover up, impede or obstruct any investigation into these 9/11 events, following wherever the facts may lead. The Commission shall publish one or more reports of their findings."

  • Statement to this website 4/5/07:

    "The importance of the 9/11 truth movement cannot be overstated.  Like me, millions of patriotic Americans question the official explanation of the attacks.  The questions and the number of citizens asking them will increase until a tipping point is reached and a new, aggressive investigation initiated.

    From this new inquiry truths will emerge which will shake this country to its foundations and, hopefully, restore our constitutional democracy.  Until that happy day arrives, however, the powerful forces aligned against 9/11 truth will fight with fury and abandon.  We must be strong and resolute and take inspiration from apostles of peace like Gandhi and King.  At the most basic level, the struggle is love versus fear.

    As a follower of Jesus, I pray we are witnessing the last days of the corporate imperial war machine, which, desperate for new battles and the energy resources to power itself, finally went too far and self-destructed in an orgy of lies, chaos and death.  This monster’s dying throes will be terrible to behold, but do not doubt the historical significance of the events playing out before us.  Future generations will thank those who had the courage to face the dragon and slay it with the sword of truth.

    As a songwriter, I turn phrases for a living.  I'll leave you with this one:  From seeds of doubt, flowers of truth will sprout.  Be strong, brothers and sisters.  We shall prevail! "

  • Song: Bin Laden (Immortal Technique, with contributions from Eminem, Mos Def, and Jadakiss)

All they talk about is terrorism on television
They tell you to listen, but they don't really tell you they mission
They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion
Even though Bin Laden, was a CIA tactician
They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose
Fahrenheit 9/11, that's just scratchin' the surface
Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects ...
Bush knocked down the towers ...

  • Interviewed by Matt Cooper on Today FM's Last Word 5/29/08:

    "The catalyst for the War on Terror was 9/11.  And that was the catalyst for the incremental implementation of Draconian measures all across the West, particularly in the U.S. and the U.K.  You've got the Patriot Act – You've got the Patriot Act I and II – Homeland Security bill.  You've also got similar in the U.K. ...

    What is the nexus doorway into the bigger picture is 9/11.  When you study 9/11, it becomes very apparent, once you wade through the dis-info and everything related to that, it becomes apparent that not only it was all not what it seems, but it was a staged terrorist attack.  It's what they call a 'false flag' operation. ...

    Many, many people across the globe believe now that it was carried out by rogue elements within the Bush Neocon administration with the help of the intelligence services.  Overwhelming evidence points to that. ...

    First of all, we're led to believe that 19 hijackers armed with boxcutters, orchestrated by a guy in a cave, carried out 9/11.  Well, as it turns out, none of those 19 hijackers' names were on the passenger manifest of the airplanes.  At least 8 of them have turned up alive, wondering why their names have been associated with this. ...

    But there are so many inconsistencies with this.  It's very important to understand 9/11 because, as I say, it's the nexus doorway into the bigger picture of what is going on and the push towards global governments.

    Look at those buildings as they come down.  They come down at freefall speeds, collapsed neatly into their own footprint.  The cement – everything was absolutely pulverized.  They didn't find a chair.  They didn't find a desk.  So, what caused that?  It couldn't have been jet fuel.  It certainly doesn't burn hot enough to do that.  It must have been explosions."  Beginning at 45:30   http://www.radioireland.ie

    "The 9/11 thing; that's one of those completely endless discussions, you know, that you can get into.  And it's all very interesting to me.  You know there's a lot of speculation, of course.  I think there always will be.  I don't think we'll ever get the full information on all of that because there's probably people who don't way you to know everything that you want to know. ...

    I think that at least the Bush administration knew that there was going to be some kind of attack on America.  Cause of -- due to the Presidential Daily Briefing that apparently everyone read but didn't react to.  And I think they perhaps chose to look the other way or stand down to gain entry -- to get attacked and basically green light their agenda that we're enacting now.

    Cause if you look at America's history, if you think about Pearl Harbor or the Viet Nam war, the Gulf of Tonkin, you see that we kind of sometimes egg our way into wars because war makes money.  I think America exists on a war economy.  The economy is the war.  And I really believe that. 

    And you say something like that, believe me, you get a whole lot of hate mail.  I do get it, but I think I'm right."  Beginning at 5:55 of the video at   http://www.youtube.com

  • Article and video BBC 3/2/06:

    "Their 'favourite film' is Loose Change, a 9/11 documentary made by debut filmmakers Dylan Avery, Jason Bermas and Korey Rowe – the latter serving in Afghanistan and Iraq during 2002-3.  It’s by no means perfect.  KRS-One hollering about 'party people' on the soundtrack over footage of the planes hitting the towers is disarmingly inappropriate.  But its intelligent, point-by-point dissection makes a dry counterpoint to the dual dominance of the Fox Networks’ near-hysterical patriotism and Michael Moore’s hugely successful polemicism.  To wit: How could jet fuel vaporise six-tonne titanium engines?  How can you make a cell phone call from 32,000 ft?  Says Liars’ Angus, 'It’s not that we all three unanimously agree with the views expressed in it.  But if you believe just one of the points it’s interesting.' " http://www.bbc.co.uk

    Video of interview:
    Interviewer: Why did you choose this film?

    Angus Andrew: ... When we got ahold of this one film it really put the whole debate in a new perspective for us.  And we were very sort of impacted by it.

    Julian Gross: I think it's also the fact that it's something that is interesting or that should be brought up. I don't know why it's never been brought up anywhere. ...

    Angus Andrew: ... When Julian found this documentary, it just knocked the wind out of me and all my ideas of conspiracy and things like that needed to be rethought.  And I then did the big test, and I took it to my parents ... and I was happy to see that they were equally bowled over.  And so I think it's not only important to be thinking and talking about this 9/11 thing, but equally the idea of conspiracy.  I just think it's this kind of taboo word that maybe should be redefined in these political climates, because, 'Who do you believe?'

  • Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11, signed by more than 1,500 Architects and Engineers:

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates  hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.  We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "9/11 is the boldest ever attempt to manipulate a democracy and manufacture consent for subsequent policy (Propaganda).

    Following many other suspected 'false flags' the cynicism and scale of this plot is unprecedented, and the entire future of the world and especially the future of democracy revolves around either its success or its exposure.

    Though there are thousands of reasons for doubting the official story of 9/11, these reasons rely on circumstantial evidence/testimony, and while persuasive in their entirety (If a person has time to investigate them), they still lack the swift killer blow of persuasion needed to draw more attention to the issue quickly.

    I believe that the 'freefall / demolition' argument of the Towers, but especially WTC 7 is the quickest and most persuasive evidence that can expose and explain the "plot".

    The problem is attracting attention to the issue and explaining the impossibility of WTC free fall to a public without entry level physics knowledge.

    It is obvious that there are many people / organizations who produce media intent on dissemination and dissuading people from questioning the official story, and the 'battleground' is the media, but you can't argue against 'freefall' if you understand it."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

  • Statement to this website 3/2/10:

    "When the 9/11 Commission Report was released, I remember thinking, "Oh, well, glad that's over with." But I kept hearing "What about WTC 7?" When I sought out the videos of that building falling, I knew something was rotten. And I quickly realized that, if WTC 7 could only be a controlled demolition, then the whole story had to be lies. Since then, I have studied the evidence for years, and there is no escaping the conclusions:

    - That all three WTC collapses were controlled demolitions.
    - Or that the Air Force standdown was not a coincidence or incompetence.
    - Or that the rules of engagement of off-course planes were changed shortly before 9/11 to require either Cheney's or Rumsfeld's approval first, and quietly changed back thereafter.
    - Or that the supposed attack planes' identification numbers remained on the books for over a year afterward.
    - Or that the anthrax attacks were from inside the US government.
    - Or that the "dancing Israelis" went on Israeli TV and said "We were there to document the event."
    - Or that the "put options" were traceable, and were hushed up because of who made them.
    - Or that the Bush administration told allies in July 2001 that we were going to invade Afghanistan by October.
    - Or that unexploded nanothermite (which only the US government, and possibly Israel, has the facilities to make) was found in the WTC dust.
    - Or that Barry Jennings (RIP) and William Rodriguez's experienced bombs detonating in the WTC buildings before they fell (and in Rodriguez's case, before the first plane hit).
    - Or that the official explanation of the WTC collapses violates basic laws of physics.
    - Or that there is known history of previous false flag attacks.
    - Or that the clocks at the Pentagon stopped several minutes before the official time of impact/explosion.
    - Or that the corporate media is covering up and enabling crimes of the greatest magnitude.
    - And on and on...

    My current tiny contribution to the movement is to put up flyers around town, sort of guerrilla-style bulletin boarding of links to truth websites of all stripes. They are usually taken down fairly quickly, although one has been up at the bagel joint for over a week. I greatly admire and appreciate the work of David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Peter Dale Scott, and the other courageous souls who have held up the torch of truth for us all."

    "I have watched many videos and read books by qualified professionals.  It is "obvious" that some form of 'inside' orchestration was necessary to cause the collapse of the buildings. The "owner" of the WTC complex admitted on national television that he had 'pulled' Building 7 to aver further tragedies.  How the "hell" did they rig explosives in there during a national emergency? They had to be installed before the fact, something requiring months of preparation.  Only the gullible have fallen for the official story."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I believed the official story of 9/11 and the WTC "collapses" for the first 4 years. While I might have had some dormant skepticism about the official story prior to 2005, it was after the Downing Street Memo, which proved beyond a shadow of doubt that the Iraq War was definitely based on lies, that my 9/11 skepticism came to the surface. After about six months of reading books and examining documentaries (including "rebuttals" to them), I was 100% certain that the official 9/11 story was false. Wondering to myself how I could have been blinded by the obvious for so long, I then realized how powerful the psychological barriers are to 9/11 truth."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

  • Essay An unresolved mystery: The mass murder of 9/11 7/29/84:

    "On July 22, 2004, the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (a bi-partisan Congressional body) issued its Final Report on the events of September 11, 2001. This document of over 500 pages is posted on the internet. It has been presented as the "unanimous conclusion" of the Commission members on what happened on that day and on the reasons for the failure to prevent the attacks. The Commission exonerates American public officials from any blame for such failure, which according to its Chairman, Thomas H. Kean, resulted from failures of "policy, management, capability and, above all, a failure of imagination".

    Yet, the Commission has studiously disregarded a wealth of evidence, testimonials, contradictions, anomalies and questions, which both independent researchers and families of victims have referred to. The Commission left large areas of inquiry shrouded in mystery.

    The number of anomalies that has been reported by independent researchers regarding 9/11 is staggering. A simple google-search with the string "unanswered questions 9/11" yields over 20,000 sites. These extend to the alleged reasons for the collapses of the two World Trade towers and the lesser known collapse of WTC-7 (which was not hit by an aircraft), the implausibility of a passenger aircraft hitting the Pentagon and disappearing without trace, the alleged shooting down of UA 93 in Pennsylvania, the lack of debris of the crashed planes, the removal and destruction of forensic evidence, the relaxed conduct of various public leaders on the fateful day, prescient remarks by US leaders, and so forth. Many, though not all, of these anomalies are discussed in Prof. David Ray Griffin's book The New Pearl Harbor, published earlier this year. ...

    The above account demonstrates that far from closing the story of 9/11, the report of the Commission of Inquiry may be considered as evidence of a criminal cover-up by the members of the congressional Commission. Such a cover-up may have unforeseeable consequences for the American people as well as for world peace. I appeal to all those who initially felt compassion towards the families of the victims of 9/11: Please do not let these families down in their quest for the truth. They are entitled to know who committed the crimes, who assisted in their commission and in which circumstances their beloved died. We all should insist that the full truth, and nothing but the truth, on the crime of 9/11 be revealed." http://www.globalresearch.ca


  • Signatory of Petition of Solidarity to the Attorney General of New York for a new independent grand jury investigation of 9/11 11/19/04:

    "We the undersigned:  a) think that there is ample evidence and probable cause to believe that many grave and still unresolved crimes were committed by US officials prior to, during and after the events of 9/11;  b) observe that most of these apparent crimes, including but not limited to abetment of mass murder, criminal negligence, insider trading, and obstruction of justice fall well within the jurisdiction of New York's top law enforcement officials ..." http://www.justicefor911.org


  • Member: Scholars for 9/11 Truth  Association Statement: "Research proves the current administration has been dishonest about what happened in New York and Washington, D.C. The World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions and that the available relevant evidence casts grave doubt on the government's official story about the attack on the Pentagon."

  • Interviewed by Ricky Warden, Jr. on OutlawVideo.tv 10/30/09:

    Ricky Warden: I also wanted to know about Broken Lungs, that song that was about the World Trade Centers. Do you believe that's something that was perpetrated by our government or ...

    Dustin Kensrue: I believe that we're most definitely not being told the truthful truth and I'd say probably not much of the truth. There's parts of me thinks things don't add up about that day's events, but you're not allowed to discuss it. In the media you're not allowed to talk about it -- you're labeled unpatriotic. From the time that people started realizing there's holes in this, the President [Bush] was on the news saying, "Don't listen to anyone who says this. They're not patriotic." And so we're largely self-policing with that kind of stuff. So, If the general population doesn't hear about it from the mainstream news then when anyone talks about they say, "Well I haven't heard about it. So, that must not be true -- crazy conspiracy theorists." ...

    I firmly believe that there was explosives in those buildings. So, basically the 9/11 Commission Report is a sham. It never set out to investigate what actually happened. Its stated purpose was to find out how our security systems failed and what happened from that perspective.

    If people are interested in it I'd recommend checking out a book called The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions by David Ray Griffin. It's very comprehensive. It just goes through the 9/11 Commission Report and then talks about the things that were either added or omitted. So, there's absolutely no mention [in the 9/11 Commission Report] of Building 7 which was a 50-story skyscraper that wasn't hit by a plane. It had a fire in it and it fell.

– Talk show host.  Documentary film producer.  Considered by many to be the grandfather of what has become known as the 9/11 Truth Movement.  In July and August 2001, Jones predicted an impending false-flag terrorist attack in the U.S., conducted by the U.S. government, and that it would be blamed on Osama bin Laden.  He specifically mentioned the World Trade Center and airliners as possible targets.  He implored his listeners and viewers to phone the White House and tell them to call it off.

  • Summary of on-air comments 7/25/01: 

    "During the months of July and August 2001, Alex Jones ran a campaign which he dubbed 'Expose the Government Terrorists' on both his TV and radio shows.  He encouraged people to call the White House and tell them not to go ahead and launch the staged terror attack that would become the foundation of their push for martial law.

    On Wednesday July 25th 2001, during a taping of Alex's local cable access TV show in Austin, Texas, he elaborated on how the Globalists were set to use their operative Osama bin Laden and that the preparations for a terror attack were in their final stages." http://www.prisonplanet.tv


  • CNN Interview 3/23/06:

    "Then you look at the official story the firefighters, the police, hundreds of them, saying there were bombs in the buildings. They were told to shut up.  You look at Building 7, detonators are going off, you can see the explosions. ...

  • Video of speech 6/25/06:

    "Long before 9/11 took place, I was fully aware of the historical fact that governments; western governments, eastern governments, the U.S. government, elements of it, normally small criminal elements, have staged terror attacks or have manufactured different pretexts to invade countries, attack nations,or enslave their own domestic populations with police state measures.  And so, opening this up today, I wanted to talk a little bit about the history of state-sponsored false-flag terrorism. ...

    It's important to understand that the 9/11 Truth movement is mainstream.  We are the mainstream. The scholars, the members of Congress, the former German Defense Minister [Andreas von Buelow], Number 3 in Blair's cabinet [Michael Meacher], members of their Parliament are clearly saying that there's something wrong with the official story of 9/11.

    However you look at 9/11, we know the official story is a fraud from end to end.  Hundreds of discrepancies, hundreds of bald-faced lies." http://video.google.com

  • Documentary The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw 9/9/04:

    "The events of 9/11 begin with aircraft going wildly off-course.  Incredibly, despite radar tracking for almost two hours, the whole of the mighty US Air Force goes AWOL that morning.  It’s a mind-bending anomaly.  Not a single US Air Force interceptor turns a wheel until it’s too late.  There are no jets at all. It’s a matter of historical record.

    That could happen only two ways.  Either it was staggering multiple simultaneous coincidental incompetence at all levels in many agencies, defying known laws of averages, a 54-million-to-one chance, which is the 9/11 Commission official story. [Or] there’s another explanation: the US Air Force is neutralized by design. The evidence indicates this is about a one-to-one chance. ...

    This, and other overwhelming evidence, ignored or explained away by the 9/11 Commission, which should be called the '9/11 Cover-up Commission,' suggests 9/11 was planned and executed at the highest levels of the US government." http://www.greatconspiracy.ca

    "Now I went to Senator Kerrey [Bob Kerrey, member of the 9/11 Commission] and I said. "Senator --" because he's associated with Air America -- I said, "Senator, are you still believing that there wasn't enough time and enough money to do an investigation?"

    And he said, "Absolutely."

    I said, "Are you calling for a new investigation?"

    And he said, "No, Richard, I am going further than that." He said, "I am calling for a permanent 9/11 Commission."

    And I said, "Senator, is this public? Can I announce that on the air? And are you willing to come on the air and say that?"

    And he said, "Yes." http://www.youtube.com

    "The 9/11 Commission could not get what it wanted.  60 percent of what it requested of the White House was refused.  Documentation refused.  Requests for information refused by the Bush White House.  And my question is, "What do they have to hide?"  Because if you have nothing to hide, you don't obstruct the investigation into the greatest tragedy in American history. ...

    I have my own opinions, but the only opinion I care to share right now is that there are unanswered questions and that the investigation is not complete. Now why do I say that?  I say that because, as I said yesterday, I have personal knowledge of that fact.  I have personal knowledge in speaking to Chairman Governor Kean of New Jersey, the Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, who said to me, to my face, "There was not enough time.  There was not enough money to do anything further than what we did." i.e "We didn't complete the job."  Commissioner Tim Roemer, a Congressman from Indiana, said to me "There wasn't enough time.  There wasn't enough money. We did the best we could."  And Senator Bob Kerry, who you hear on Air America on Saturdays on occasion, said the same thing, "Well there really wasn't enough time.  There wasn't enough money."

    Well you know what, that was a big event that happened six years ago and dammit, we need to have some questions answered.  And I made a list, so we're going to be talking about that with Lorie Van Auken and Janice Matthews [Executive Director of 911Truth.org] .  We're going to have a statement from Senator Mike Gravel, who is calling for a new investigation.  And we're going to be talking to a bunch of other people."

  • CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight on-air comments 8/19/06:

    Lou Dobbs: Tonight, we're one month away from the fifth anniversary of September 11th.  A shocking new book by the 9/11 Commission co- chairmen, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, says Americans still don't know the whole truth about their government's initial response to those terrorist attacks that day.  Christine Romans has the report.

    Christine Romans: Two hours of chaos and confusion on September 11th, and months of government ineptitude at incorrect testimony.  A new book by 9/11 commission co-chairmen Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton outlines repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and Federal Aviation Administration.

    They write, "Fog of war could explain why some people were confused on the day of 9/11.  But it could not explain why all of the after-action reports, accident investigations and public testimony by FAA and NORAD officials advanced an account of 9/11 that was untrue." ...

    Now, Kean and Hamilton say all the inaccuracies have fueled conspiracy theorists, they've stymied the investigation, and Lou, damaged the credibility of this government.

    Lou Dobbs: Well, this government doesn't deserve much credibility, does it?  In point of fact, if all of the after-action reports are untrue, for whatever reason, that's a lie, because they were asserted as the truth by people who knew better or should have. ...

    Incompetence and ineptitude on the part of this government on September 11th and in the weeks and months leading up to it are established.  The fact that the government would permit deception after a deception, whether honestly, if you can call it that, honestly intended or not.  But the fact that they continue and perpetuate the lie, suggests that we need a full investigation of what is going on and what is demonstrably an incompetent and at worst deceitful federal government.  Christine Romans, thank you very much.  Incredible. http://transcripts.cnn.com

  • Essay Are the Osama Tapes Fake? 1/8/08:

    "Late in December 2007, The Associated Press reporter Salah Nasrawi wrote a story about a Bin Laden audiotape that had just been released. Headlined "Bin Laden Threatens Israel, Warns Iraqis," Nasrawi's piece details Osama's dire threats to expand al Qaeda's jihad in Israel and to "liberate Palestine, the whole of Palestine from the (Jordan) river to the sea," threatening "blood for blood, destruction for destruction."

    Then, 11 paragraphs down, Nasrawi writes: "The authenticity of the tape could not be independently confirmed. But the voice resembled that of bin Laden. The tape was posted on an Islamic militant Web site where al-Qaida's media arm, Al-Sahab, issues the group's messages."

    If the tape can't be vetted, it shouldn't be used. That's Journalism 101. At the very least, the fact that it can't be authenticated should be mentioned in the story's title and continuously mentioned throughout the story as the quotes are being used. Worse, all the mainstream TV outlets picked up on Nasrawi's story and liberally quoted "bin Laden" without bothering to use the word "purported" or another adjective indicating they had no proof it was Bin Laden on the tape. Collectively, what these journalists are doing is worse than outright lying to the public. They are literally helping dangerous people with deadly hidden agendas create a virtual reality by unquestioningly conveying their messages.

    Nasrawi didn't just bury the authentication problem in his story. He also referred to earlier, equally questionable "bin Laden" communiqués. "The tape was the fifth message released by bin Laden this year, a flurry of activity after he went more than a year without issuing any tapes. The messages began with a Sept. 8 video that showed bin Laden for the first time in nearly three years. The other messages this year have been audiotapes."

    Reporting on unauthenticated bin Laden tapes as if they were real is, shamefully, getting to be an old practice. In November 2002, a "bin Laden" audiotape surfaced and a senior State Department official explained to CNN that the voice on the tape was indeed Bin Laden's, but that "we don't know yet whether anybody put it together, spliced or computer-generated it."

    Just how could "anybody" computer-generate bin Laden's voice and create an entire bogus statement?

    On February 1, 1999, William Arkin, writing for washingtonpost.com, described a voice-morphing technology that government scientists at Los Alamos laboratory in New Mexico had developed.

    "By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner's [Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations] voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile," Arkin wrote. "To refine their method, they took various high quality recordings of generals and experimented with creating fake statements. One of the most memorable is Colin Powell stating, "I am being treated well by my captors."

    Arkin also indicated that morphing was not limited to audio, and could be used for some very interesting and disturbing purposes: "Digital morphing -- voice, video, and photo -- has come of age, available for use in psychological operations. PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives."

    Arkin's article inspired me to dig a little more into the bin Laden tapes.

    I decided to compare this video of Osama that al Jazeera released on December 27, 2001 with other Bin Laden videos. [Editor's note: That video has been removed. Another partial copy of it can be found here.] The December 27 video is not dated, but it provides an up-close, in-focus look at the guy we all recognize as Osama from many previous photos. Now (dear reader, you're going to have to do a little work here), compare that to a tape that the U.S. government released on December 13, 2001 [see CNN footage in "Loose Change" documentary at 1:14:25 into the program]. The tape, ostensibly shot on November 9, 2001, is of very poor quality -- dark and out of focus with fuzzy audio. One can't positively ID the man who is supposed to be Osama in this tape. And curiously, this alleged bin Laden is seen writing with his right hand. According to the FBI, bin Laden is left-handed.

    In the November 9 tape, the purported bin Laden says things such as, "We calculated in advance the number of casualties from the enemy, who would be killed based on the position of the tower," and "Due to my experience in this field, I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all that we had hoped for." He also says that, "Mohammed Atta was in charge of the group."

    When the U.S. State Department released the tape, one BBC reporter prudently used quotation marks in this headline, "Tape 'proves bin Laden's Guilt'," before quoting President Bush and then-British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw saying that the tape was proof of Osama's guilt. "But the BBC's Middle East correspondent, Frank Gardner," adds the BBC reporter, "says that at street level in the Arab world, many believe the tape is a fake, a PR gimmick dreamed up by the US administration. And the defence minister of the ousted Taleban [sic] regime in Afghanistan told the BBC that he was doubtful about its authenticity, saying it was unlikely that Bin Laden would have been naïve enough to say such things on a recording."

    It is hard to imagine a mainstream American TV reporter calling a former Taliban defense minister for a comment on anything. Yet running to President Bush for the truth hasn't always worked out for certain high-profile journalists either.

    Unlike the BBC, CNN expressed no doubts about the December 27 tape's authenticity: [Editor's note: This should refer to the November 9 tape released by the U.S. government on December 13, 2001.] "Osama bin Laden recounts with delight the September 11 terrorist attacks against the United States as he talks with associates on a videotape released Thursday by the Bush administration." And further down, this: "The Bush administration hopes the tape will convince skeptics, particularly in the Muslim and Arab worlds, of Bin Laden's complicity in the attacks."

    A few months earlier -- six days after 9/11 to be exact -- CNN reported that Bin Laden had sent a statement to Al Jazeera denying that he had been involved: "The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it... I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons." [September 17, 2001].

    The FBI says it has no hard evidence that Bin Laden participated in 9/11. That's what the FBI's Rex Tomb told Muckraker Report's Ed Haas. The FBI doesn't want Osama for 9/11. They want him in connection with the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, which killed more than two hundred people.

    Turning back to those tapes one last time, there are other troublesome videos, including two mentioned in an October 29, 2007 MSNBC story, "Was Bin Laden's Last Video Faked?". The story has to do with two videos, one released on September 7, 2007 and another released about three years earlier on October 29, 2004. Oddly, the man in both (fuzzy, of course) tapes looks exactly the same -- sitting in front of the same background and wearing the same clothes--except that in the later one, the purported Osama's beard appears younger with a beard that seems to have been dyed black. Experts are asked for their opinions and they can't say for sure what exactly is up with the tapes. Then the requisite "senior US intelligence officer" is asked the requisite question about the October 2007 tape's authenticity and the officer gives the requisite response, saying he "believes" the tape is new, but he can't discuss why. Another "even more senior intelligence officer" says he doesn't think the black beard in the new tape is fake, but again, he won't say why. I think it's time reporters stop giving passes to sources such as these. If they can't back up their statements, don't quote them. The secrecy and lack of transparency everywhere in government have reached absurd levels and journalists should fight both hard at every turn. In this case, find other, better sources that are willing to talk. They exist.

    MSNBC does get points for raising the question. But excellent journalism would involve pursuing the matter until definitive answers on the provenance and authenticity of the tapes were found.

    These details boil down to two things. One, all the unauthenticated audiotapes and fuzzy videos look and sound suspicious. Two, there hasn't been any clear, up-close, "look at me, I'm alive" videos of Bin Laden for years. The journalism community would do well to wonder why -- and then move forward aggressively from there. The American public needs to know what's going on here."  http://www.buzzflash.com/articles/contributors/1489

    Don Dahler: Yes Peter its Don Dahler down here. I'm four blocks north of the World Trade Center. The second building that was hit by the plane has just completely collapsed.

    The entire building has just collapsed as if a demolition team set off -- when you see the old demolition of these old buildings. It just folded in on itself and it is not there anymore.  It has completely collapsed. ...

    Peter Jennings: The Southern Tower.  10 o'clock Eastern time this morning.  Just collapsing on itself. ....  We have no idea what caused this.  If you wish to bring, anybody who's ever watched a building being demolished on purpose knows, that if you're going to do this you have to get at the, at the under infrastructure of a building and bring it down."

  • FOX News live reporting from the Flight 93 impact site on 9/11/01: Mr. Chaniki had just returned from visiting the alleged impact site of United Flight 93 near Shanksville, PA.

    Jeff Goldblatt:  I wanna get quickly to Chris Chaniki he's a photographer with the Pittsburgh affiliate a Fox affiliate. He was back there just a couple minutes ago and Chris, I've seen the pictures, it looks like there's nothing there, except for a hole in the ground.

    Chris Chaniki:  Basically that's right, the only thing you can see from; where we were was a big gouge in the earth, and some broken trees. You could see some people working, walking around in the area, but from where we could see there wasn't much left.

    Jeff Goldblatt:  Any large pieces of debris at all?

    Chris Chaniki:  No, there was nothing. Nothing, that you can distinguish that a plane had crashed there.

    Jeff Goldblatt:  Smoke, fire?

    Chris Chaniki:  Nothing, it was absolutely quiet, it was actually very quiet. Nothing going on down there, no smoke, no fire, just a couple of people walking around. They look like part of the NTSB crew. Walking around, looking at the pieces.

    Jeff Goldblatt:  How big would you say that hole was?

    Chris Chaniki:  Ah, from my estimates, I would guess it was probably around 20 to 15 feet long, and probably about 10 feet wide.

    Jeff Goldblatt:  What could you see on the ground, if anything, other than dirt and ash and ... ?

    Chris Chaniki:  You couldn't see anything. You just see dirt, ash and people walking around, broken trees.

  • Editor's note: United Flight 93 was a Boeing 757-220 with a wingspan of 124 feet and a height of 44 feet. Its weight, exclusive of fuel, was approximately 130,000 pounds. It would have been carrying several thousand gallons of jet fuel. Mr. Chaniki and Mr. Goldblatt's live, on-the-scene report of a single small "gouge in the earth" with no smoke or fire is is inconsistent with the size of the airplane and the amount of fuel it was carrying. Additionally, many aircraft accident investigators seriously doubt that the debris resulting from the impact of such a large aircraft would contain no large pieces.

  • NBC live reporting from the Flight 93 impact site on 9/11/01:

    "The debris here is spread over a three to four mile radius, which has now been completely sealed off, and is being treated, according to the FBI, as a crime scene. ...

    This is one of those cases where the pictures really do tell the story that, sort of, the most horrifying aspect of this particular crash scene is how little debris is visible. There is a large crater in the ground. And I'm hoping that you all are seeing it as I'm talking about it. But that's really all you see is just a large crater in the ground, and just tiny, tiny bits of debris. There has been at least one report that the investigators out there, and there are hundreds of them, as I've said tonight, have found nothing larger than a phone book."

  • Editor's note: Ms. Magnus' live, on-the-scene report of debris scattered over a three- to four-mile radius is at odds with the official account of 9/11, which claims the Flight 93 aircraft was essentially entirely buried in the ground in a single crater. Additionally, many aircraft accident investigators seriously doubt that the debris resulting from the impact of such a large aircraft would contain no large pieces. Flight 93 was a Boeing 757-220 with a wingspan of 124 feet and a height of 44 feet. Its weight, exclusive of fuel, was approximately 130,000 pounds.

  • Interview by Jürgen Elsässer 1/15/07:

    "One should not put the blame for everything on Osama bin Laden. He certainly did not organize the September 11 attacks. He certainly did not have in his Afghan cave the flight plans from the USA to coordinate it. And if he is still alive today, he cannot use a telephone, or fax or the Internet, if he doesn't want to be located immediately. How can he organize terror from there?"
    Original in German http://www.linksfraktion.de


  • Zwischen den Fronten (Between the Fronts) by Peter Scholl-Latour 2007:

    "It is also worth noting the precise implementation of this suicide mission [9/11]. Under the impact of the two planes the monumental skyscrapers fell down almost precisely vertically, and it happened like they were carefully prepared as if for demolition of a dilapidated building. The surrounding area remained largely spared. ... [Page 50]

    "When will German politicians abandon the proven false arguments that the precise planning, precise execution of 9/11 were done in the caves of Afghanistan? Granted, it may be that Osama bin Laden, who until 1991 was an active recruiting agent of the CIA in this region, after his sudden, religiously motivated turnaround against the U.S. ordered the mission for the destruction of the World Trade Center. But that could have been ordered from any point on the Earth. In the many al-Qaida camps in Afghanistan nothing more took place than basic infantry and rudimentary instructions on how to build explosives. The special training of the mainly Saudi suicide pilots took place exclusively in the U.S., and only there could the suicide pilots obtain and coordinate the flight plans, which gave them the schedule." [Page 348]

    Peter Scholl-Latour: The "War on terror" is a phantom war. And when we say we are in a war against terror - so much of which didn't really happen ... The tragedy of the World Trade Center happened [9/11], and now we are told Al Qaeda is behind every attack that takes place. ...

    Cerno Jobatey: Don't you believe that? Don't you believe that Al Qaeda was [responsible for 9/11]?

    Peter Scholl-Latour:  No, Al Qaeda doesn't have the central organization. I was recently in Afghanistan and everyone swore to me they hadn't even heard of the name "Al Qaeda" before 9/11.

    Cerno Jobatey: This narrowing of focus onto Al Qaeda - It leads to no solution? Do I understand you correctly?

  • Essay Even I Question the 'Truth' about 9/11 8/25/07:

    "I am increasingly troubled at the inconsistencies in the official narrative of 9/11. It's not just the obvious non sequiturs: where are the aircraft parts (engines, etc) from the attack on the Pentagon? Why have the officials involved in the United 93 flight (which crashed in Pennsylvania) been muzzled? Why did flight 93's debris spread over miles when it was supposed to have crashed in one piece in a field? ...

    I am talking about scientific issues. If it is true, for example, that kerosene burns at 820C under optimum conditions, how come the steel beams of the twin towers – whose melting point is supposed to be about 1,480C – would snap through at the same time? (They collapsed in 8.1 and 10 seconds.) What about the third tower – the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or the Salomon Brothers Building) – which collapsed in 6.6 seconds in its own footprint at 5.20 pm on 11 September?  Why did it so neatly fall to the ground when no aircraft had hit it?  The American National Institute of Standards and Technology was instructed to analyse the cause of the destruction of all three buildings. They have not yet reported on WTC 7. ...

    Let me repeat. I am not a conspiracy theorist.  Spare me the ravers.  Spare me the plots. But like everyone else, I would like to know the full story of 9/11, not least because it was the trigger for the whole lunatic, meretricious "war on terror" which has led us to disaster in Iraq and Afghanistan and in much of the Middle East."  http://news.independent.co.uk


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Radio interview by Kevin Barrett on 5/25/10:

    "I'm going to break a rule. Now you mentioned 9/11. Basically, in public I don't talk about it because it makes you such an easy target for abuse and false charges of anti-Semitism, and everything, doesn't it? So basically I have stayed away from it because it gives them a focus to take the attention away from your main message.

    But since you've raised it, I'll tell you what I honestly believe. I think it probably started out as an all-Muslim operation, but I think it would have been very quickly penetrated by Mossad agents.

    Now it's not a secret -- I detail it in my book -- from almost the moment Israel was born, it had its agents penetrating every Arab government, every Arab military organization, and every Arab terrorist group, whatever. So they would certainly have penetrated this. And my guess is that at an early point they said to the bad guys in the CIA, "Hey this operation's running, what do we do?" And the Zionists and the Neo-cons said, "Let's use it."

    Now what is true and what is false, I believe, beyond that is not arguable. The Twin Towers were brought down by a controlled ground explosion, not the planes. Now I tell you in passing that among the friends I have are consultants who work for the world's leading civil engineering and construction firm. I'm not going to name it. But they have studied the film for me. And they have said there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that the Towers were brought down by controlled ground explosion."  At 35:00 in the recording at http://edwardrynearson.wordpress.com

  • Essay 9/11 and the Great American Decline 9/10/08:

    "So, what do you think will happen now?" The question was posed by the taller of two young Israelis, my sole companions in this section of Liberty State Park on the Jersey City side of the Hudson River, the morning of September 11, 2001.

    "Everything has changed," I replied, unaware that the same phrase was simultaneously forming on the lips of millions around the globe.

    "Yes, everything has changed," said the Israeli, looking not at all displeased. He turned to resume taking photos of the great smoking space that had been the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, and of the huge, low cloud that drifted across New York Bay to Brooklyn.

    My fellow witnesses to the collapse of the second tower were already positioned at the riverbank when I arrived at the scene on foot after having rushed past police who blocked all vehicular entrance to the park. The athletic, military age duo were clicking away with two very expensive-looking cameras. They spoke excitedly to each other in Hebrew - a language I instantly recognized from my two decades as a Manhattanite - but clumsily claimed to be "Polish" when I asked where they were from. I pretended to believe they were visitors from Poland.

    Informed that I was a reporter, the taller, more gregarious one laughed giddily and exclaimed, "Yes, we are reporters, too!" He opened an attaché case to display two laminated New Jersey press cards that looked just like mine - except they were the wrong color. He cheerfully admitted the press cards were phony. "They are easy to make," he said, still laughing.

    Their new-smelling car was parked nearby; it was the only vehicle in the lot, since the young men had clearly arrived before the police sealed the entrances to the park. When we were done gawking at the awful hole in the skyline across the river, the visitors allowed me to hitch a short ride home. As the day unfolded, news reports told of other, small groups of Israelis positioned at vantage points on the Jersey side of the Hudson. Some behaved shamelessly, loudly welcoming the new era in which "everything has changed."

    My own theory is that my companions were probably senior students in a graduating class of one or another Israeli intelligence agencies. Co-ed groups of military-age Israelis pretending to be students of a non-existent Tel Aviv "arts school" had earlier that year been caught attempting to visit - "infiltrate" - sensitive U.S. security sites, as authoritatively reported at the time by a number of corporate media outlets.

    At the very least, Israel knew something was up, and arranged for their graduate-spies to be witnesses to history. ...

    The Bush gang could no more conceal their excitement at the possibilities now opened to them by mass murder at the Twin Towers, than could my Israeli interlocutors at Liberty State Park. 9/11 was wielded as a kind of weapon to take down the planet, justification for a final assault on international order, itself.

    In its convulsive "response" to 9/11 - the worldwide "War on Terror" - the United States seized the opportunity to put in motion planetary aggressions that already existed in the blueprints of the neo-con's Project for a New American Century (PNAC). In effect, Washington was claiming revenge as the motive for crimes that it had long been planning to commit. Precise causality for the specific events of 9/11 becomes near-irrelevant, submerged in the much larger aggression that was conceived long before the towers fell."   http://www.blackagendareport.com

  • Essay Get The Truth 9/02: 

    "Truth may have been the casualty of war in former ages, but this war is different. While major media busy themselves waving flags, a global network of independent journalists, who have no interests to protect, no secrets to hide are tracking and documenting its development on a daily basis. ...

    Using and sharing only published and sourced news stories from world media, and official documents of various governments either leaked or available under freedom of information acts, these journalists have assembled a disturbing picture, which suggests CIA foreknowledge and complicity of highly placed officials in the U.S. government around the attacks on the World Trade Center Sept. 11. ...

    Ironically, the stock market was also warning anyone who cared to notice that something peculiar was afoot: in the week prior to Sept. 11, unknown speculator(s) were suddenly betting that the stocks of United Airlines and American Airlines were going to fall in value; the trades were placed through Deutschebank/AB Brown, a firm formerly managed by Buzzy Krongard, now executive director of the CIA.

    So far, no one has been bold enough to claim $2.5 million in profits. No serious search for the speculator is under way. ...

    If the work of Internet journalists is correct, then the war is neither a holy war, not a grand clash of civilizations between East and West, and our soldiers were lost to us and to their families to keep drugs and oil profits flowing in the U.S.

    Until we know the truth, we should refuse to add one more Canadian body to the pile of dead in Afghanistan. Not one. Canada should get the truth or get out." http://www.standup2harper.com

    Now, I'll tell you where I have seen attachments that look like that -- on military aircraft.  So the question we have to answer now is, 'Was that the commercial airliner that hit the World Trade Center or possibly was it an aircraft that looked very similar but was a military-type airplane?' ..."  at 10:05 of the video

    Regarding the five still photos of the Pentagon impact released by the Department of Defense. "And I looked at the little silvery object.  And obviously there's no markings to be seen.  There's no photographs of any of the corporate emblem or the tail number.  And we've never found any airplane parts.  I just found that fascinating. 

    And I can't imagine a pilot so talented that he could breach Washington air space after the World Trade Center was hit two times.

    And then all this time goes by, we're staring at the World Trade Center 1.  We see 20 minutes later the second tower hit.  And then we see 20 minutes later the Pentagon's hit. But we never, ever find any airplane parts.

    This pilot would have to make such an angled, heavy 280 degree  maneuver at 500 miles an hour, keep it just barely off the ground, and then slam it right into the Pentagon.  It's just --- it's a stunning story. Really. ...

    I want to just remind you who the pilot was -- supposedly -- of Flight 77 and I don't mean the real pilot, I'm talking about the guy who is purported to have flown the aircraft into the Pentagon, making this unbelievable angled maneuver. ... 

    Hani Hanjour is supposedly the pilot of Flight 77. He takes it over from the actual pilots, right. Well here's a little background on Hani Hanjour. He trained in Arizona.  He trained at a school called JetTech. ... They do notify the FAA that he lacks both English and flying skills necessary for the commercial pilot's license that he already has. ... And a JetTech Flight School manger couldn't believe that he had a commercial license of any kind with the skills that he had.  And a former employee of JetTech tells the New York Times in 2002, "I am still to this day amazed that he could have flown into the Pentagon.  He couldn't fly, at all". ...

    Something's is really wrong with our response on this.  NORAD, I don't know if they were given a stand down order. ...

    I don't want to say it, but it looks to me like a missile." http://media.putfile.com

  • Heather Mallick's speech at the Mel Hurtig Annual Lecture on the Future of Canada 10/4/07:

    Question: Why are we accepting what the American government is telling us happened on September 11, 2001, at face value when it's all over the Internet that it couldn't possibly have happened without help from the inside, especially the Building called Number 7, that fell for no reason at all?

    Heather Mallick: It's very interesting because even Seymour Hersh, who I trust more than any journalist in the world, says, "I don't know what happened on 9/11. I'm not sure." But I think the main reason why we accept that version is because there's nobody out there in mainstream journalism giving us any information on that. We're just told what governments and corporations want us to hear. We rely on corporate sources of information. In Canada, our newspapers are owned by -- For example the Globe and Mail is owned by CTV. Global owns newspapers published across the country. I still can't believe that that is true. It's shocking to me. But you're never going to get alternative views of current affairs and of history as long as the means of transmitting information is so corporately owned.

  • Article The Guardian 9/11/01: 

    "Stephen Evans, the BBC's business and economics correspondent in North America, was sitting in the foyer of the World Trade Centre as the two aeroplanes crashed into the twin towers in the worst terrorist attack ever.

    "I was on the ground floor of the building sitting in a chair waiting for somebody to turn up as you do," said Evans.

    "There was huge bang. It felt to me like somebody dropped a skip full of rubbish, a great container full of rubbish, from a great height in the yard which separates the two huge towers which are the World Trade Centre.

    "It's one of those where you think, well something's happened on a building site

    "But seconds later, there were two or three similar huge explosions and the building literally shook." http://media.guardian.co.uk

    "There was another big, big explosion in the other tower.  [Apparently referring to the second airplane impact into WTC South Tower]  Flames coming out.  This billowing gray smoke.  People still not panicking.  People not quite understand what was going on.  Then somebody said that they saw an airliner go into one of those towers.  Then, I don't know, an hour later than that, we had that big explosion, from much, much lower.  I don’t know what on earth caused that."  Initiation of collapse begins a few seconds later in the interview.

    "George W. Bush, without a doubt, is a war criminal.  And 9/11 was a fraud perpetrated on the United States.  George Bush and the Bush crime family are deliberately involved, consciously involved in the attack on the country.  There's enough evidence out there now to try George Bush, whether he's President or not, for, in a political sense, crimes against humanity and war crimes, in a criminal sense, mass murder.

    Now I'll stand by that statement for rest of the time that I do talk radio, for the rest of my life.  Period.  That's it.  There is no question any longer for me.  If you're still wrestling with it; continue your struggle and I certainly honor your struggle.  I've struggled with this for, what's it been, Cathy, almost five years?

    It's just beyond any doubt for me now.  What we saw on CNN and MSNBC and so on and so forth on September 11, 2001 was a carefully orchestrated attack on this country by the Bush crime family.  Now how they did it remains to be explored by minds a lot sharper and more scientific than mine, but I don't have any doubt any longer." http://www.911blogger.com

Pentagon eyewitness.  Freelance video and still photographer who arrived at the Pentagon on 9/11 within 4 or 5 minutes of the explosion.  25-year career, initially providing still news photographs to AP, UPI, and the Washington Post and then providing video news photography to all major networks; CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and the local Washington D.C. television stations.
  • Video interview of his experience at the Pentagon on 9/11:

    Bob Pugh:  About 9:30, and in fact, it turned out to be about 9:38, I overheard the Arlington County Fire Dispatcher dispatch a Battalion Chief to an aircraft that was down in the vicinity of the 14th Street bridge.  That's one of the bridges across the Potomac from Virginia into Washington D.C. and right into the middle of town.  It was, incidentally, the site of the Air Florida crash in 1980, during the winter.  So, I was very familiar with the location and logistics of how to get there.  So, I immediately left my office and began moving in that direction. ...

    As I got down toward the Pentagon, and parallel to the actual Pentagon, itself, I could see that the building, itself, was on fire. ... I came right up into the area of the impact, parked my car, got my equipment and left.  I began videotaping immediately. ...

    There is in my video, a clip -- I actually have a Battalion Chief at Fort Myer putting an air bottle on his back.  In discussions with him, he has indicated to me that he put that air bottle on five minutes after the impact.  So, that helps me with my timeline and my thoughts. ...

    I'm looking for wreckage and I don't see anything discernable.  I can't find a piece of anything I recognize.  I can't see the tail.  I can't see the wheels.  I can't see the engines.  There's no chairs.  There's no luggage.  There's no logo.  I mean, for Air Florida, when we shot that, you could see the logo of the Air Florida plane.  There was identifiable structures that you could see with that kind of an impact and that aircraft. ...

    [Editor's note: American Air Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon, a Boeing 757-223, was a much larger airplane than Air Florida Flight 90, a Boeing 737-222, and should have left twice as much debris.   The maximum empty weight and the maximum takeoff weight of a 757 is more than twice that of a 737.]


  • Bob Pugh:  There's a lot of debris in the foreground of those videos, again, it's very small pieces.  I mean I'm standing on pieces a dinner plate or smaller in size.  The largest piece I believe I saw was maybe 2 by 3 feet and it was crumpled.  I believe that is the piece that everybody sees with a blue stripe -- well-- or it had red paint on it, red logo, a red stripe. ...

    Interviewer:  How big, now you were right up there, how big was the Pentagon hole?  How big could it possibly be?

    Bob Pugh:  I would say, I would say, it was 16 feet diameter, 20 feet tops.  Again, I can't -- That's what struck me so curious as I was trying to find something -- There was no marks on the grass.  Something never hit the ground.  It didn't hit the heliport.  I mean, it was a precision or awfully lucky hit.  I mean, I don't know how it didn't bounce.  I don't know how it hit directly in the side of the building without touching the ground, going as fast as it obviously was going.  But I can't believe the thing is more than a garage door. http://www.youtube.com

  • CNN on-air conversation regarding the Pentagon on 9/11/01:

    Judy Woodruff (in the studio):  And, Jamie, you got very close to where that plane went down.

    Jamie McIntyre (at the Pentagon):  That's right, Judy.  A short -- a while ago I walked right up next to the building, firefighters were still trying to put the blaze. ... I could see parts of the airplane that crashed into the building, very small pieces of the plane on the heliport outside the building.  The biggest piece I saw was about three feet long, it was silver and had been painted green and red, but I could not see any identifying markings on the plane.  I also saw a large piece of shattered glass. It appeared to be a cockpit windshield or other window from the plane. ...

    Judy Woodruff:  Jamie, Aaron was talking earlier -- or one of our correspondence was talking earlier -- I think -- actually, it was Bob Franken -- with an eyewitness who said it appeared that that Boeing 757, the American jet, American Airline jet, landed short of the Pentagon.  Can you give us any better idea of how much of the plane actually impacted the building?

    Jamie McIntyre (at the Pentagon):  You know it might have appeared that way, but from my close up inspection, there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon.  The only site is the actual side of the building that's crashed in.  And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you can pick up in your hand.  There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage.  Nothing like that anywhere around, which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon and then caused the side to collapse.

    Now, even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that the floors have all collapsed; that didn't happen immediately.  It wasn't until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0109/11/bn.35.html

  • Radio interview Every Woman 6/10/06: Regarding 9/11:

    Sharon Lockhart: What do you say to those people who say, 'Oh this can't be possible.  The United States wouldn't have allowed this to happen?' What would you say to them?

    Bonnie Faulkner: What people have to do is look at the evidence. It's very easy to dismiss something it you don't look at the evidence. But there is so much evidence now.  An incredible amount of evidence. All you have to do is just google 9/11 and there are hundreds if not thousands of websites, terrific ones.

    So much evidence with regards to the physical evidence of the Towers, in addition to the political situation; the Stand Down. The fact that planes can't go off course for an hour and a half. four planes flying around without being intercepted.  That's not standard operating procedure. 

    There's so much evidence that it would take hours and hours and days to plow through it all. http://www.911truth.org

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

  • Endorsement of the PentaCon documentary 3/10/07: 

    "This excellent new documentary includes on-the-scene interviews with eyewitnesses, including two police officers, who definitively prove that the official approach path to the Pentagon is an impossible lie.  You have to see the interviews, and see the witnesses draw the path they saw compared to the official approach path animation, to appreciate the importance of this.  Because this aspect alone is conclusively proven and shows an obviously staged accident scene (light poles downed that could not POSSIBLY have been downed by the approaching plane), it throws every other event on 9/11 into question.  The accident scene becomes an obvious fake, as well as the flight data recorder info and the official NTSB flight paths and animations."  http://blog.myspace.com

  • Radio interview with Arizona State Senator Karen Johnson 5/8/08:

    Charles Goyette:  My own view, as I have been at pains to express over the years, is that while I don't know exactly everything, every detail about what happened, I do know that the official story is worse than Swiss cheese.  And before this segment of our program is finished this morning, I will cite unreliable sources to buttress that point -- unreliable sources.  Well, I'll cite the FBI.  How about that?  I'll cite -- How about members of the 9/11 Commission, who they themselves say that their own conclusions were warped by being lied to by the [Bush] Administration.  So I'll tell you about some of the indisputable observations of members of the 9/11 Commission about things they got wrong or never got the truth about.  http://www.archive.org

  • Radio interview with Davin Coburn, Research Editor, Popular Mechanics 8/23/06: Regarding 9/11

    Charles Goyette:  Is there information that has not been given to the public?

    Davin Coburn:  I think very little. ...

    Charles Goyette:  Well, I was under the impression that there were a lot of facts that were withheld.  I mean the surveillance videos, for example, around the Pentagon that we were told about; the hotel video, a convenience store video and we haven't seen those.  They were apparently swooped up and grabbed really quickly [by the FBI], or so the report goes.

    Davin Coburn:  So the report does go.  And actually that is the case.  And those have been taken as part of larger criminal investigations.  Slowly those are now being disclosed and those are coming out into the public, you know, with the Judicial Watch material, and they're --

    Charles Goyette:  Well, I talked to guys at Judicial Watch.  They're not really happy about it.  I mean, they released 4 frames that don't really show anything. ...

    Are you telling me that's the only video?

    Davin Coburn:  No, I suspect there are other videos.  I suspect that they're still being used for various investigations.  I don't know exactly --

    Charles Goyette:  What the hell's to investigate?  They told us who the guys were.  They held on to some of that stuff for the Zacarias Moussaoui trial, for the love of God.  I mean, like it was really relevant to his trial.  I mean, it's five years later, when are the American people entitled to the evidence? ...

    It's not the evidence that we've seen that we're concerned about.  It's the evidence that we haven't seen.  Does that make any sense? ...

    It's not helpful in this country with a very secretive government when a big powerful magazine like you guys -- Who owns Popular Mechanics?

    Davin Coburn:  Hearst.

    Charles Goyette:  Ok, when Hearst Corporation, with all of your might, instead of joining the people in their natural curiosity to see all of the evidence, you try to say 'Oh shut up, you peons, don't know what you're talking about.  Everything's fine.  Keep on moving, there's nothing to see here.'  Hearst should be using their influence to get all the evidence released and that will end all the conspiracy talk.  Won't it?

    Davin Coburn:  Well, you know, I actually disagree with your take on our approach to that article there.

    Editor's note: Several other very interesting points are discussed in the full interview, which can be heard here. http://www.apfn.net

  • Interviewed by Richard Greene on Air America Radio 5/14/08:

    Paul Berenson:  I got three questions that I ask about 9/11 and unless you can answer all three of these questions, the government theory falls apart.

    Number one is WTC Building 7.  It did not get hit by a plane but it just fell down.  Only 45-story steel-framed skyscraper to ever fall down.  Three of them did that day.  Two got hit by planes.  WTC 7 did not.  What happened?

    Number two is, "Who has the power and authority to stand down the U.S. Air Force?"  We had hijacked jetliners flying all over the Eastern seaboard for two and a half hours that day, flying into buildings.  And not a single fighter jet was scrambled, well actually they were, but they were sent in the wrong direction.  They were sent out over the Atlantic.  So, who had the power to do that?

    And number three, "Who had the power to stand down the Secret Service?"  Because we all watched Michael Moore's movie where George Bush sat in that classroom for seven minutes.  Now I had somebody who worked for the U.S. Department of Labor on my show this past Saturday, Morgan Reynolds.  And he was with Elaine Chow, who is the Secretary of Labor today, after the attacks.  And she said the Secret Service came in, grabbed her, physically picked her up, took her to a waiting government sedan, not a limousine, but a sedan, and drove her immediately to a secure undisclosed location.  But they left the President in that classroom where anyone who went to whitehouse.gov would know where he was?

    So you got to answer all three of those questions, otherwise the official story falls apart.  http://www.radiodujour.com

  • Interview The Alex Jones Show 3/17/07:

    Alex Jones: Gary Franchi's our guest. ... I wanted to get his take just on 9/11 Truth as a whole.  I mean -- how do you see it damaging the New World Order?  Or do you think it's effectively neutralizing their problem-reaction solution ace card?  Because we have shown they've got it up the sleeve.  We're basically showing that it's a rigged deck.  And I think we've reached critical mass.

    I went to see Children of Men.  It was a big movie the last few months in theaters.  And within five minutes of the movie starting they say, 'The government's behind all the terror', twice.

    It's like everywhere -- in music now.  And in Hip-Hop.  It seems like everybody I talk to, everywhere I look people are talking about it.  Don't you think the worm has turned?

    Gary Franchi: Oh, no question.  You know, what's happening here.  When they pulled off 9/11, they thought that they could get away with it.  OK They thought we would just buy their propaganda.

    But they underestimated the people.  We're smarter than what they think.  And we've taken control of the media.  We have the facts.  I mean you look at the physics and science; it's irrefutable.  Any average high school-age person who understands simple science; the falling of a rock, can understand 9/11 Truth.  OK  So with that happening -- see, they just screwed up.  They got too arrogant.  They played all their cards on one hand.  And they screwed up.  And now the people are awake.  There's nothing they can do.  It's like Pandora's box." http://lonelantern.org

  • Article FBI Documents Contradict 9/11 Commission Report - Hijacker had post-9/11 flights scheduled, files say 2/28/08:

    "Newly-released records obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request contradict the 9/11 Commission’s report on the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and raise fresh questions about the role of Saudi government officials in connection to the hijackers. ...

    The FBI timeline reveals that alleged hijacker Hamza Al-Ghamdi, who was aboard the United Airlines flight which crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, had booked a future flight to San Francisco. He also had a ticket for a trip from Casablanca to Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. ...

    The FBI timeline reveals that Al-Ghamdi, the alleged United hijacker, was booked onto several flights scheduled for after the 9/11 attacks, a piece of information not documented in the Commission’s final report.. ... 

    A week after the Malaysian summit, al-Mihdar and al-Hazmi traveled to the United States. According to the 9/11 Commission report, they arrived in Los Angeles on Jan. 15 and “spent about two weeks there before moving to San Diego.” (9/11 Commission report, p. 215, chapter 7). The footnote for this item shows that the Commission relied on a different FBI report, “‘Summary of Pentbom Investigation,’ Feb.29, 2004 (classified version), p.16.”

    But the FBI timeline contradicts this claim, placing the alleged hijackers in San Diego with specific details. ...

    Why did the Commission use an alternate source for the whereabouts of the two men, when the FBI’s own timeline said they were in San Diego by Jan. 15, the same day as their arrival in the US? ... " http://rawstory.com

  • CNN interview 3/24/06:

    A.J. Hammer: We were speaking a few moments ago about Charlie Sheen coming forward this week with his notion that the government may actually have been behind September 11 and the September 11th attacks and the conspiracy theories in general surrounding 9/11.  What do you make of an actor of his stature coming out publicly like that?

    Erica Jong: I think he's a brave man to even question this aloud in an environment where people have been saying that anyone who questions the government is a traitor.  So, Charlie Sheen has done his homework and he's asking questions.  He's speaking truth to power, which is a brave thing to do.  Look, the young people in my family, my nephews, for example, have been saying for the past three, four years, that we are not learning everything about 9/11 that we're meant to learn.  And specifically they've been saying that if you read all the different websites, if you're really careful, what you discover is that a lot of facts don't add up.

    A.J. Hammer: And even if a modicum of what is being put out there, all these conspiracy theories, even if a piece of that is true , we have a responsibility, don't you think, to be asking the questions and to be doing the investigation.

    Erica Jong: I think it's very patriotic to investigate it. ...

    So, I think that Charlie Sheen is really patriotic and brave to ask these questions. I don't know what the answer to these questions is.  ... But I think that it's a job of writers and of talented people to investigate this stuff. http://www.youtube.com

  • Interview The Alex Jones Show summary 10/26/06:

    "While stopping short of claiming the Bush administration directly carried out 9/11, Vidal was certain that they "let it happen on purpose," citing the head of the Pakistani ISI bankrolling the hijackers while also meeting with U.S. government officials in the week before and on the morning of 9/11.

    "What made no sense is that CNN wouldn't follow up on why the fighter planes had not been scrambled and gone up to stop the hijacking - that's the law of the land you don't need the President to order you, you don't need a general - those are your instructions - I know, my father wrote them," said Vidal. 

    When asked if there should be a new investigation of 9/11 Vidal insisted, "of course there should and a wonderful time to do it would be at the impeachment of Bush - I think you might find everything that we ought to know but do not know." http://prisonplanet.com

  • Video interview by Stewart Howe, of WeAreChangeLA 10/7/08:

    Stewart Howe:  I'm here with Naomi Wolf at Vroman's [Bookstore] in Pasadena to ask her what she would like to say to the Truth and Accountability Movement.

    Naomi Wolf:  So, what I want to say is: I don't have a theory that explains what happened on 9/11, but this is what I do know.  Based on what the founders intended America to be, there should be no questions that citizens ask that are beyond the pale.  Citizens should be able to ask any question.  If they have questions about 9/11, their elected officials should be accountable to them.

    I'm aware that the Commissioners of the 9/11 Report disavowed their own conclusions in the New York Times.  And if they disavowed their own conclusions because their conclusions were based on evidence derived from torture, then there should be another investigation.

    I live 10 blocks from Ground Zero and I know I that had questions as a citizen as the events were unfolding. ...

    So, I would say to the Truth and Accountability Movement that I respect their effort to find out for themselves and I respect their spirit as citizens to not be silenced in terms of the questions that they have. ...

    Stewart Howe:  Is there anything about the events of the day of 9/11 that just sort of didn't add up?  Is there anything at all that you find questionable that you would ask the questions to?

    Naomi Wolf:  I think every thoughtful citizen has noticed things that might raise questions.  I'll just tell you that I met a firefighter two nights ago in Seattle who started a Firefighters for 9/11 Truth organization.  And I have to say, just as a citizen, I trust the firefighters.  I trust that they don't have an agenda.  So, if they have questions, it leads me to think that legitimate citizens have legitimate questions. http://www.youtube.com


  • Video of public appearance 12/7/07:

    "I don't have a position on 9/11, but I'm increasingly uncomfortable of the fact that in this culture, asking questions about 9/11 is a kind of untouchable area.  It's bad to have an untouchable area in a democracy.  And personally, at this point, I think these people [the Bush administration] are capable of anything. ...

    I think there are a bunch of good questions about 9/11. .... And I don't have any answers because there hasn't been a real investigation.  You know, the 9/11 Families aren't satisfied with the depth of the investigation.  That's not good in a democracy.

    I was in Lockerbie [Scotland] when the plane [Pan Am Flight 103] blew up.  And the whole town was roped off as a crime scene.  And there were big chunks of bodies and fuselage and luggage all over the countryside.  And that was a bomb.  It was treated very differently.

    Two days after 9/11, I was reading that they're shipping the molten metal out to China.  And I was like, "Well, someone's going to get in a lot trouble.  That's a crime scene."  But no one got in trouble.  But it was a crime scene.  You know, so I think it's disturbing.

    Have people created or staged provocations in history before in American history?  Consistently! ...

    Are there more questions to be asked?  Yes!  So, it's disturbing to me that people who ask questions are so marginalized. ...

    Let me end not by saying something sad, saying something happy.  Millions of people rising up together to confront tyranny are a force that is unstoppable as long as we've got these vestiges of democracy that we have now.  So go at them.  Lead the way."  http://www.youtube.com

  • Editorial, Vanity Fair "Truth and the 9/11 Commission" 8/1/04:

    "One would think that an investigation into the causes and intelligence and judgment failures leading up to the attacks of September 11 – the most devastating assault on U.S. soil in more than half a century – would be at the very top of any administration's agenda.  Not here.  The 9/11 commission's goal was to determine how the attacks could have been avoided, and to recommend systems the U.S. needs to put in place to protect its citizens against further catastrophic incidents.  The Bush White House characteristically did everything in its power to derail an open inquiry. Then, when faced with its inevitability, the president and his aides sought to limit its scope, its access, and its funding.  A brief rundown on the administration's search for the truth surrounding September 11:

    In January 2002, both the president and the vice president approach then Senate majority leader Tom Daschle to shut down any form of inquiry, whether a congressional probe or an independent, bipartisan commission. This, despite calls for an investigation from families of victims of the atrocity, for one, and from a bipartisan assortment of House and Senate members. ...  

    In November 2002, Bush signs legislation creating the 9/11 commission and appoints former secretary of state Henry Kissinger as Chairman.  The New York Times in an editorial suggests the White House chose Kissinger "to contain an investigation it long opposed." ...

    In January 2003, the Bush administration allots a budget of $3 million for the inquiry. Jon Corzine, the Democratic senator from New Jersey, tells NPR's Morning Edition, "That's not enough for a full-blown investigation."  Indeed, a 1996 federal commission looking into casino gambling was given a $5 million budget; $50 million was spent on the inquiry into the Columbia-shuttle explosion; and $50 million was spent investigating the Clinton's failed Whitewater deal. ...

    In March 2003, Chairman Thomas Kean tells the administration that the commission needs an additional $11 million to investigate the attacks and complete its report.   He is, according to Time magazine, "brushed off" by the White House. ...

    In July 2003, Bush suppresses 28 pages of a congressional report on the attacks of September 11.  According to The New York Times, "People who saw the section have said that it focuses on the role foreign governments played in the hijackings, but centers almost entirely on Saudi Arabia."

    In January 2004, the commission – whose report is due May 27, 2004 – asks for two more months for its inquiry.  The commission cites non-cooperation and the withholding of documents by the White House as prime reasons for the necessity of an extension, according to the Chicago Tribune.  Bush and House Speaker Dennis Hastert turn down the commission's request for more time. ...

    In February 2004, after almost a year of wrangling, the commission threatens to subpoena the White House for access to the Presidential Daily Briefs. ...

    In February 2004, former senator Bob Kerrey, a member of the commission, tells the New York Daily News, "Resigning is on my list of possibilities," alluding to the White House's refusal to allow the panels members appropriate access to intelligence reports and officials."  Please see the full editorial for several additional points.  Part of this editorial is available online at http://www.accessmylibrary.com

  • Editor's note: Bob Kerrey was actually a replacement for original 9/11 Commission member, former Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission in December 2003, after having served on it for 12 months.  The Commission's Report was issued 7 months later.  In the month prior to Senator Cleland's resignation he stated, "This investigation is now compromised." and, "It is a national scandal."

  • Essay 2/28/07:

    "I must admit that I have been deeply shocked by a story that appeared today on my website, to the effect that the BBC reported the collapse of WTC Building 7 23 minutes before it actually took place. Previously, the BBC claimed that it had lost all of its 9/11 coverage, but this video has now surfaced. I watched it myself, and sat there with my blood literally running cold as I saw their reporter saying that Building 7 had collapsed while it was still visible behind her, perfectly intact. ...

    Somebody wrote that script and did so while Building 7 was still standing. How could they know that it would collapse, even if it was unstable, even if there was a fire in the cellars?

    No, the author of the script did not think the building had collapsed. He knew that it would, and the statement was read early as a miscue. ...

    I used to believe that the Administration let 9/11 happen so that it could have an excuse to attack Iraq and destroy our freedoms. Condoleeza Rice ignored the FAA warnings because she knew that an attack would transform an unpopular president into a beloved leader—which it did...for a time.

    Given this latest piece of news, I think that anybody who seriously thinks that the whole event wasn't carefully planned and fed to us as a scripted "news event" needs to have their head examined. It was planned, period. Otherwise this reporter wouldn't have been announcing one of the disasters before it happened. It's inescapable." http://www.unknowncountry.com/journal/


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

– Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 1997.  Playwright, director, actor, and composer.  Also recipient of the Sonning Prize from Copenhagen University, a Premio Eduardo Award, the Obie Award, and the Agro Dolce Prize.  Author of a large body of work during his more than 50 years in the theater, an extensive list of which can be found here.  Husband of actress and current Italian Senator Franca Rame.
  • Article Premier of the Documentary Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11  10/26/07:

    " 'Bullshit invented by a general' is how Nobel Prize winner for Literature Dario Fo describes the official version of the attacks on the Twin Towers.  The actor and director is convinced of this version of events in no uncertain terms, and this version is told in Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11, the documentary by Claudio Fracassi and Francesco Trento, which has been submitted to the Rome film festival.

    Fo, with Lella Costa, Moni Ovadia and Gore Vidal, is one of the narrators of the film, which is not fiction, and is the result of an investigation by Giulietto Chiesa [Member of Parliament of the European Union], that provides witness accounts and reconstruction of events which cast doubt on the official version of 9/11 provided by the USA. ...

    The playwright explains "The authors of Zero did not begin the project with preconceived ideas but instead created the documentary based on the truths that emerged.  What they ask of you is to watch the film critically."

    Fo says, "As far as 9/11 is concerned, some of the situations we have been told are not only unlikely but also grotesque.  They sound like a General's bullshit, who is normally capable of very crooked inventions, also thanks to the funny cap he wears".  He also added, "Ever since Kennedy's murder I have used the unlikely explanations given by the US Government on some events as material for four of my shows; they are sometimes really an insult to people's intelligence." http://www.agenziaradicale.com


  • Documentary Film Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11  10/26/07:

  • Dario Fo, regarding events at the World Trade Center: "The two towers shake considerably with the first impact, but they immediately return to their original structural position.  Why?  Because they were specifically designed to do this in the event of a plane crash. ...

    We have been told, by the very people who designed and built these towers, that they should have resisted the impact of more than one airplane. ...

    In 2005 there was a fearsome conflagration in Madrid.  A skyscraper went up in flames.  It was a huge torch that kept burning for 20 hours -- 20 consecutive hours.  But in the end the load-bearing structure remained intact.  The skyscraper did not fall down.

    As you can see, the [Madrid] building is enveloped in flames.  This skyscraper was not yet complete.  It was still under construction.  Nevertheless it remained standing.  Something you should note is the white color of the flames.  This means that there is a lot of oxygen burning.

    If you look at the flames coming from the two towers in New York we can see instead that the flames are dark red and the smoke is black. ... Nevertheless 55 minutes later the whole tower collapses.

    According to the official NIST version of events, at a certain point, the steel structure of the towers gave way.  It no longer had the structural strength that it had at the beginning and all of this was supposed to be because of the immense heat.

    And here there is something difficult to explain.  We know that at some point certain people managed to walk down from the top of this tower and crossed the point where the fire was strongest.  Somehow they reached the bottom of the tower.  How did they manage to do that?"

    Dario Fo, regarding the events at the Pentagon: "According to the official version, the American Airlines Boeing 757 disappeared inside this hole.  Can you see it?  5 meters, I repeat 5 meters, in diameter.  Let’s make some calculations.  A Boeing 757 is, including its wingspan of course, 38 meters wide.  And including the rudder, or the tailfin, it is 13 and a half meters high.  To get all of this huge aircraft into a hole 5 meters wide seems rather implausible to me! ...

    [Editor's note: General Albert Stubblebine, the former commander of U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command had a similar reaction.]

    One very strange thing that doesn't make sense is the disappearance of various components of this Boeing.  For example the two engines.  And what about the planes wings -- where did they go?  Had they been “gasified”?

    [Editor's note: Capt. Daniel Davis, a jet engine technical expert had a similar reaction.]

    Instead we are told the fuselage remained intact and it smashed through the whole outer wall of the Pentagon and emerged through the other side, destroying a number of columns.

    We said that the most solid part of the airplane is without any doubt the engines.  In fact, these engines are made of a titanium-steel alloy.  It is so tough that it doesn't even melt at 3 thousand degrees centigrade.  Well now, in this wall we should be able to see, if nothing else, the holes made by the two engines that smashed into it.  No!  There is no sign of them.  The two holes that we’d expect to see are not there. ...

    In the light of what we've seen and heard it seems that the official version of 9/11 is not completely adequate.  We want the facts to be explained to us and above all to be clearly analyzed.  Basically, we want someone to finally tell us the truth.

– Investigative reporter with The New York Times 1981 - present. Lead reporter on the investigation of the 9/11 Commission. Has held several of the most important assignments of the Washington Bureau, including chief Defense Department correspondent, diplomatic correspondent, Congressional correspondent and Justice Department Correspondent. Author of The Commission: The Uncensored Story of the 9/11 Investigation (2008)
  • Newsweek article 3/23/09:

    "The [9/11] commission appears to have ignored obvious clues throughout 2003 and 2004 that its account of the 9/11 plot and Al Qaeda's history relied heavily on information obtained from detainees who had been subjected to torture, or something not far from it.

    The panel raised no public protest over the CIA's interrogation methods, even though news reports at the time suggested how brutal those methods were. In fact, the commission demanded that the CIA carry out new rounds of interrogations in 2004 to get answers to its questions.

    That has troubling implications for the credibility of the commission's final report. In intelligence circles, testimony obtained through torture is typically discredited; research shows that people will say anything under threat of intense physical pain.

    And yet it is a distinct possibility that Al Qaeda suspects who were the exclusive source of information for long passages of the commission's report may have been subjected to "enhanced" interrogation techniques, or at least threatened with them, because of the 9/11 Commission.

    While the CIA says it ended the use of waterboarding by early 2003, the agency continued to use other "enhanced" methods involving pain, sleep deprivation and extended isolation—all of which have been branded as torture. The CIA insists that its interrogation methods were legal and approved by the White House.

    I wish I had known all this before my book was published in January of last year. Only a few days after publication, the CIA acknowledged publicly, for the first time, that it had carried out waterboarding on Al Qaeda detainees. It was a startling disclosure. Before 2001, the United States had routinely condemned waterboarding as torture and had prosecuted it as a war crime.

    The CIA insisted that only three men had been waterboarded: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the architect of the 9/11 attacks; Abu Zubaydah, Al Qaeda's operations chief; and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, ringleader of the USS Cole bombing.

    Information from CIA interrogations of two of the three—KSM and Abu Zubaydah—is cited throughout two key chapters of the panel's report focusing on the planning and execution of the attacks and on the history of Al Qaeda.

    Footnotes in the panel's report indicate when information was obtained from detainees interrogated by the CIA. An analysis by NBC News found that more than a quarter of the report's footnotes—441 of some 1,700—referred to detainees who were subjected to the CIA's "enhanced" interrogation program, including the trio who were waterboarded.

    Commission members note that they repeatedly pressed the Bush White House and CIA for direct access to the detainees, but the administration refused. So the commission forwarded questions to the CIA, whose interrogators posed them on the panel's behalf.

    The commission's report gave no hint that harsh interrogation methods were used in gathering information, stating that the panel had "no control" over how the CIA did its job; the authors also said they had attempted to corroborate the information "with documents and statements of others."

    But how could the commission corroborate information known only to a handful of people in a shadowy terrorist network, most of whom were either dead or still at large?

    Former senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, a Democrat on the commission, told me last year he had long feared that the investigation depended too heavily on the accounts of Al Qaeda detainees who were physically coerced into talking. While he thought the commission's larger narrative about the September 11 attacks held up, "there's reason now to suspect that we may have gotten some of the details wrong" about the 9/11 plot and about Al Qaeda.

    Kerrey said it might take "a permanent 9/11 commission" to end the remaining mysteries of September 11." http://www.newsweek.com/id/189251

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the
    "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

    "The scientific evidence is overwhelming that the events of 9/11 involved participation by the Bush Administration ... at the very least treason, at the most murder.  We need an independent investigation to expose the lies and bring the real criminals to justice.  We need the mainstream media to stop supporting policies that lead our nation to war (which in turn feed their own coffers) and investigate the news, reporting the real facts."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "Prior to the Democrats winning control of both the House and the Senate last year, the Bush administration was utterly unresponsive to requests from committees of both the House and the Congress for information.  And as to the waging of the war in Iraq, or the distribution of the spoils to various American contractors, and so on.  So, yes, our government is becoming increasingly privatized.  And government information that should be available to the general public, not available to the general public.

    As to the question of what happened at 9/11, I am reading at the moment a book by a man named David Griffin, on the debunking of the 9/11 debunking, and he raises a number of sharp questions ... which I think deserve further questioning and investigation, but I am not as yet prepared to think that the bringing down of the 9/11 -- I'm sorry -- of the trade towers was the work of the Bush administration." http://www.booktv.org

  • Essay Gaping Holes in the 9/11 Narrative  9/11/06:

    "What we still don’t know about 9/11 could kill us. By "we" I mean the public that has been kept in the dark for five years by a president who may know the truth but has chosen to ignore it. ...

    Last week, Bush conceded that there were indeed secret CIA prisons, when finally announcing that the group of "key witnesses" to the 9/11 disaster would be moved to Guantanamo and for once afforded visits from the Red Cross and minimal legal representation. Some of them have been interrogated in secret for up to five years, with the Bush Administration left as the sole interpreter of what they revealed.

    After five years of official deceit, it is not too difficult to believe that the isolation of those prisoners was done less for reasons of learning the truth about 9/11 and more in an effort to politically manage the narrative released to the public.

    There is glaring evidence that the latter was the case.  The 9/11 Commission report contains a disclaimer box on page 146, in which it is stated that the report’s account of what happened on 9/11 was in considerable measure based on what those key witnesses allegedly told interrogators, and that the commissioners were not allowed to meet the witnesses or their interrogators.

    "We submitted questions for use in the interrogations, but had no control over whether, when or how questions of particular interest would be asked. Nor were we allowed to talk to the interrogators so that we could better judge the credibility of the detainees and clarify ambiguities in the reporting."

    In short, the most cited source that we have on what happened on 9/11, the much celebrated 9/11 Commission Report, was stage-managed by the Bush administration, just as it has controlled and distorted so much other information.

    In light of that sorry record of the propagandistic exploitation of the 9/11 tragedy for partisan political purpose, is it any wonder that large numbers of Americans have doubts about all of it and that a considerable industry of documentaries and investigative reports has sprung up with alternative theories ranging from the plausible to the absurd?  http://www.commondreams.org

  • Personal statement to this website regarding his novel No Place to Run, the first novel to posit that the 9/11 hijackers had serious help from high up in the U.S.  3/17/09:

    "I have absolutely no doubt that the conspiracy I posit in No Place to Run is true. More than that, I find it difficult to imagine that anyone, on reviewing as I did the events of 9/11, what led to them, and what has followed, could arrive at any other conclusion. 

    First, the fact that the future hijackers were known to be taking flight-training – and supposedly not-monitored, plus – on the day – the lack of USAF fighter-planes in the Northeast Corridor and in Washington, D.C., and the “confusion” in which long-standing protocols about what should happen when airplanes are hijacked or even go off-course were ignored, it was clear then – and now – that something was certainly not kosher.

    In the writing-trade, we refer to such things as “plot-conveniences,” devices that, in fiction, are so obvious that they are to be scrupulously avoided. The entire 9/11 scenario – including but far from limited to the above, as well as the highly questionable collapse of the Towers, and the cover-up of Flight 93’s having been shot down – contains far too many such “Whoa - just a minute now…” red-flags. 

    What I desperately hope to achieve with the publication of No Place to Run is to reach a few people who might not have considered these things – and perhaps cause them to think about – and begin to try to change – our country’s direction before it is too late."

    "There are unanswered questions in the 9/11 investigation and they should be answered. 

    I don't think plausibility is evidence, though.  It's plausible that it was so amenable to George W. Bush's political fortunes, like it chilled out the Democrats.  9/11 distracted attention from necessities that he doesn't want to pay attention to here ideologically, like health care.

    It made his company friends very rich and they funded his reelection campaign, and on and on.  But that’s not evidence.  That’s plausibility.

    How do you go from plausibility to evidence?  You have a more independent inquiry." http://www.c-spanarchives.org

    "Patrick Leahy has a point when he urges President Obama to open investigations about the Bush administration. However, he's not pointing at the issue that we need to start with. Namely, September 11th. What really happened? More than a few people know - and I am not alone in calling for those who know to start talking and fess up. Let's not let this go the way of the JFK assassination - and whether with subpoenas or on their own volition, I demand that Dick Cheney, George W. Bush - both of whom refused to testify under oath during the 9/11 Commission proceedings -- Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Armitage, Larry Wilkerson, George Tenet, Robert Mueller and the rest - as well as Bill Clinton and Al Gore (both of whom also refused to testify under oath) -- start talking, and in a public arena. And I'm calling on the Obama administration to open up a probe and unravel the web of deceit."  http://www.huffingtonpost.com

  • Essay 9/11/07: 

    "A commenter asked recently about my take on 9/11. In light of the anniversary, I thought this might be a good time to set out, very briefly, what I think on the subject.

    It's really quite simple and, to my mind, self-evident: the "official" story of what happened on September 11, 2001, is not a complete or accurate account. (We should of course speak of official stories, because there have been several shifting, contradictory scenarios offered by the great and the good in the six years since the attack. However, for clarity's sake, we'll stick with the singular for now, and will assume -- as the entire media and political establishment does -- that the report by the Hamilton-Kean 9/11 Commission is the final "official" version.)

    To put it plainly, this official account is riddled with holes: unexplained inconsistencies, unprecedented occurrences, astounding coincidences, mysterious lacunae, and deliberate obfuscations. It is, in fact, a more improbable "conspiracy theory" than many of those suggested by the much-derided "9/11 truth movement."

    What's more, the commission that was finally, grudgingly appointed to look into the attacks was obviously a whitewash from the word go."  http://www.chris-floyd.com

    "I'm very aware of the serious contradictions and apparent lies in the Official Government Version (OGV) of what happened on that fateful day. (Before the Truthers can be dismissed as “conspiracy theorists”, it should be noted that the OGV is literally a “conspiracy theory” about the fantastic things that a certain 19 men conspired to do.) It does appear that the buildings in New York collapsed essentially because of a controlled demolition, which employed explosives as well as certain incendiary substances found in the rubble. So, for this and many other questions raised by the 9/11 Truth Movement, the OGV can clearly not be taken entirely at face value but has to be seriously examined point by point." http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2010/10/02/the-911-truth-movement

    Regarding 9/11 "The video evidence of controlled demolition is as clear and compelling as any police surveillance tape or convenience store robbery video."  http://www.ae911truth.org


  • Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11, signed by more than 1,500 Architects and Engineers:

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates  hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.  We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php

  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "The evident demolition of WTC 7 on September 11th 2001, is the sore spot of one horrific day that strongly suggests that all three individual attacks on the United States need to be re-investigated.  It is almost a treasonous act not to ask why WTC 7 is not included in the so called 'official' 911 commission report.  It is like entering a crime scene and leaving the murder weapon with all finger prints out of the official report."  http://www.ae911truth.org


  • Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11, signed by more than 1,500 Architects and Engineers:

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates  hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.  We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Interview by Kevin Quirk:

    Kevin Quirk:  How and when did you first got involved in seeking the truth about 9/11?

    Marc Estrin:  I was immediately suspicious when I saw the buildings fall, and suspected foul play.  The event didn't correspond with any other physical incident I had ever experienced.  But my initial thoughts were focused on the potentially catastrophic aftermath – just what the Bush administration would do with the occurrence.  Later in the day, when I saw Building 7 come down, I was convinced all three buildings were brought down by controlled demolition, but had no way to follow up on this.  In the succeeding weeks and months, my activist attention was detoured into the ominous response of our government.  It was only when I read The New Pearl Harbor that I was able to begin putting the pieces together.  I responded especially to [David Ray] Griffin’s eight levels of possibility – from the administration simply taking advantage of the event to pursue a pre-existing agenda to the possibility of its active planning and execution. ...

    Kevin Quirk:  How has your search for 9/11 truth impacted your life?

    Marc Estrin:  It's been quite a burden, not only considering the time it has taken to read, watch, listen to, and study the material, but because of the depression it leaves behind, depression concerning the irrationality of most people's responses.  Ignorance I can understand, when the MSM has so gotten behind the official story and obscured or pooh-poohed all else.  But smart people, political people, lefties, people with an informed and developed criticism of the administration, and an understanding of the real history and politics of the United States, respected friends, co-workers and colleagues – most use the same gesture when I bring up the issues: the hands are thrown up, palms out, to face level, and the mouth says “I'm not going there.”  They all say the same sentence: “I'm not going there.”  They don't believe anything else Bush says, but they believe this whole, preposterous 9/11 story.  I don't get it, I don't get it, I don't get it.  One woman elaborated, “I don't want to live in a world where such things could be true.”  But they are, ma’am, they are.  http://web.mac.com/mestrin

    Cindy Sheehan: I have also called for a valid, independent investigation of 9/11.  And I've signed the petition with the Jersey Girls, you know, who have been asking for a valid independent investigation, also.  I think that the 9/11 Commission and their report was, you know, a total travesty and a smokescreen.   And I am also calling for a, you know, like I said, a better investigation; I mean actually really an investigation into 9/11, 'cause the other one was just a farce. ...

    Alex Jones: Specifically on 9/11, why are you calling for another, or really a first, independent investigation?

    Cindy Sheehan: Well because I think the other one was just a, you know -- For one thing, George Bush and Dick Cheney held hands and testified behind closed doors, not under oath.  You know, it'd be nice to get these people out in the open.  Let's get everything out in the open.  And there are many things that just don't add up on that day. ...

    Why was the air defenses, why were they doing exercises that day?  Why was a new FAA head in there that day, just for the first day.  And why weren't the controls, the automatic mandatory controls -- when you lose contact with an airplane, you intercept it with a military jet.  And that should only take seconds.  Those orders weren't --  I mean -- From what I understand, and you know more about it than I do, it's not even an order to do that, it's mandatory. ...

    And it does look to me like it was a controlled demolition, but I'm not an expert.  And I haven't had time to research it, but it does to me look like a controlled demolition from a very amateur eye. ...  

    I do see some very high-profile people who are saying that they think it was an inside job." http://www.infowars.com

Author of the Mac Fontana detective series and the Thomas Black detective series. Recipient of the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America and an Edgar award nomination for his work. Lieutenant and 30-year veteran of the Seattle Fire Department.
  • Essay: One Lieutenant's Perspective 8/21/08:

    "Along with millions of others, I watched the events of 9/11 unfold with disbelief and horror. I was home with my wife when the first tower collapsed. She turned to me and asked if a collapse was an eventuality that I as a veteran firefighter would have expected. I told her it was not only unexpected, but startling. What was even more startling was to watch both towers crumble into dust, and later, tower number 7, also go down at free fall speed, collapsing basically into its own footprint. Over the years I'd seen a number of buildings collapse due to fire, all wooden structures, but none collapsed at free fall speed. How much more resistance would a steel-framed building provide?

    I had just finished writing a novel in which a conflagration burned unchecked in Seattle's tallest skyscraper, the 78-story Columbia Tower, and because of my research, I knew for a fact that no steel-framed building had ever collapsed due to fire, no matter how long that fire burned. In my novel the remnants of Seattle's tallest building had ended up in a severe tilt. Nothing in my research indicated there was reason to go any further.

    There was a lot going on after 9/11. The news stories continued to pile up while the country gradually pieced together what happened that day, or what we thought happened. In early 2002 Vertical Burn was published and I did a two-week author's tour for Ballantine Books. Every day I talked to crowds who were eager for the opportunity to discuss 9/11 with a working firefighter. The most frequent comment was, 'Those New York firefighters were so brave. Going into those buildings when they knew they were going to fall down.' My reply: 'Of course they were brave. But they weren't idiots. There was one simple reason none of them believed the buildings were going to collapse: no steel-framed building had ever collapsed due to fire. Ever. They didn't going into those buildings thinking they were headed for certain death. They went in to evacuate people and to put the fires out.'

    Listen to the radio reports from the firefighters that day. Look at the holes the planes put into the towers. Check out how much heat it takes to compromise steel compared to how much could have been generated by jet fuel fires. Observe how much smoke was coming from those buildings just prior to each collapse. There were people standing in the holes waving for help. And yet, the popular notion is that the buildings had uncontrollable fires and that those fires caused the buildings to collapse.

    There were witnesses in the openings caused by the aircraft impacts and those witnesses were telling us something. They were telling us the fires were largely quelled. If fires didn't bring those three buildings down, what did?

    I too, watched the NOVA special and for a while some of my questions seemed as if they had answers. Then I found the 9/11 for truth web sites run by engineers, architects and pilots and began watching videos and reading. Now Erik Lawyer is starting a website for firefighters who want another investigation of 9/11. If you think you know what happened that day, browse this site and compare what you think you know to what the experts are telling us.

    If you're a firefighter you knew the government was lying that first week when the EPA administrator, Christine Whitman, told the public the air in lower Manhattan was safe to breathe. Any firefighter who'd been on the job more than two weeks knew that was a crock. Now, up to seventy percent of the people working on the site and living in the area have lung disease. There were other, more crucial lies. Cruise this site. Open your mind. For any firefighter, this is the most important website you will visit this year or any other year."  http://firefightersfor911truth.org

  • Essay: Bush Record Of Illegalities Suggests Possible Role In 9/11 WTC, Pentagon Strikes 3/6/07:

    "
    The trouble with thinking 9/11 was an inside job staged by George W. Bush & Co. is that it defies belief any U.S. president might be capable of such an iniquitous crime against his own people.

    Yet, subsequent Bush actions, such as lying the nation into war against Iraq, makes one wonder if the man didn't create the 9/11 massacres to justify his attacks on Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran.

    After all, his record reveals him to be a serial liar, warmonger, tyrant, torturer, and usurper of his peoples’ civil liberties. ...

    On Bush ’s watch, anthrax germs from a military laboratory in Fort Detrick, Md., were mysteriously unleashed upon two of his political opponents in the U.S. Senate that killed five people and sickened 17 others and temporarily shut down the Congress.

    Peculiarly, the perpetrators of the anthrax panic and the massacres at the WTC and Pentagon have not been caught. "Why not?" Is it just possible the White House doesn't want the killers apprehended?

    For all these, and many other reasons, it’s worth hearing out the arguments of those who claim the 9/11 events were staged by the White House to rush a frightened nation into war. ...

    Congress needs to conduct a real investigation of 9/11. It may not only uncover ample grounds for impeachment but for criminal prosecution. Given GWB ’s track record for criminal activity, treason cannot be ruled out." http://www.scoop.co.nz

  • Essay It's Time to Face the "Not-See" Menace :

    "Four big unanswered questions about 9/11 still remain unanswered, and largely unasked:

    Why were the FBI agents on the trail of the actual hijackers in this country -- in their own words -- "thwarted"? Who did the thwarting and why?

    Who profited from United and American airlines stocks plummeting in the wake of 9/11? Who did the selling?

    Why were jets not scrambled immediately after the plane hit the first tower? Why the delay?

    Why were Osama bin Laden’s relatives whisked out of the country right after 9/11, and never interrogated by the FBI?" http://www.wakeuplaughing.com/notseemenace.html


  • Essay 6/14/06:

    "I found myself in Santa Rosa's Church of the Rose to hear Dr. David Ray Griffin, author of a book on the 9-11 attacks called The New Pearl Harbor, as well as The 9-11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions. Griffin, a soft-spoken retired professor of theology with sandy, graying hair, proceeded to calmly and quietly dismantle the official 9-11 story. The room was filled to standing with people of all ages, many of whom attended the church. As Griffin made his case for how the official story could never have happened the way they said it did, I looked around me. Everyone was riveted, and yet I could detect no fear, no paranoia in the room.

    People were hearing his message--the essentials of which are that our government likely knew about or had something to do with the 9-11 attacks--and yet there was something about his delivery that was reassuring." http://bohemian.com

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation."

    "We the undersigned:  a) think that there is ample evidence and probable cause to believe that many grave and still unresolved crimes were committed by US officials prior to, during and after the events of 9/11;  b) observe that most of these apparent crimes, including but not limited to abetment of mass murder, criminal negligence, insider trading, and obstruction of justice fall well within the jurisdiction of New York's top law enforcement officials ..." http://www.justicefor911.org


  • Signatory of Petition to Release Information Pertaining to 9/11 10/5/06:

    "We, the undersigned, demand the immediate declassification and release of:
    • all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. It has been alleged that this urgent and out-of-the-ordinary meeting was called to discuss the increasingly dire warnings of an imminent al Qaeda attack within the U.S. ...
    • the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI), and
    • the CIA Inspector General’s report, CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks

The disastrous nature of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks warrant the release of all of this information so that the American public may learn what its government did or did not do to protect them. Had this nation been properly warned of the looming and imminent terrorist threat, life saving choices could have been made that day." http://www.petitiononline.com/july10/

  • Essay 2/23/07:  "Twice in the past week, from his elevated perch at the U.K.’s Guardian, [George] Monbiot has splattered his aspersions at every doubter of the official 9/11 line. ...

    What bugs me is this: Why must an establishment journalist–even a Leftist establishmentarian–like Monbiot have to stoop to nay-saying, insults and jibes to curtail and censor debate?  Are all the books closed?  Was Fukuyama right, after all, when he declared the end of history? ...

    When did it become impermissible to ask difficult, but not impenetrable questions?  Isn't this the problem with this modern world of “us against them,”–George Bush’s simplistic, gunslinger attitudes of “with us or with the terrorists”? ...

    The credibility of 9/11 conspiracy theorists is not at stake. Let them question, let them doubt, let them propose.  They do not “draw campaigners away from real issues,” as Monbiot claims. Rather, they challenge all of us to be more nimble on our toes when snake-charmers weave tales of Weapons of Mass Destruction, and when journalists who should know better forsake discernment and beat the drums for war." http://civillibertarian.blogspot.com

  • Statement to this website 6/4/08:

    "I became obsessed, or focused on the matter of 9/11, after twice seeing on C-SPAN  a few writers from the book 9/11 and  American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out, hosted by Ray McGovern, talking to an audience in Berkeley.  Whereas I had previously considered that the Bush administration seems to have let the attack happen, therein it registered with me that, of course, there is no way for steel beams many stories below the flames to have given way.

    I had, actually, watched the Loose Change DVD a couple of times, but had felt too ignorant of physics etc, ...  But, seeing these sober men talk, it dawned, "My God, of course, any boy scout can see it."  Next, I went to looking and read about the nearly secret collapse of WTC Building #7, and so forth.

    In my own case, I am always dumbfounded how well the mob manages to not think even so clearly as boy scouts or little children may, and, this thing, many-fold the greatest crime in U.S. history, has unbelievably intimidated citizens who otherwise might have reasoned better than children.

    How the media is controlled is disgraceful!  In this land of mythos we must begin to question the official garbage of 9/11."

  • Article Erie (PA) Times News 11/4/07: 

    "I'm really interested now in the things the 9/11 truth movement is doing. ... It interests me because I don't think we're being told truth about what really happened on Sept. 11, 2001. I'm highly skeptical of government accounts of what really happened. It's one of those things that really won't go away. I've been reading about that event and studying about it a great deal. ...

    We're being lied to. That's what bothers me the most. There's a lot of evidence in almost any area of the entire event, and you can bring up a lot of inconsistencies and unanswered questions just about the event itself. Two of the three steel-frame buildings that day collapsed due to fire, and that's never happened before, never in history. But that day it happened three times, including one building that didn't get hit by a plane. Building Number 7 didn't get hit by a plane and it went straight down in six and a half seconds. In the vast majority of U.S. cities that would have been the tallest building in the city. It had nothing but a couple of small fires on a couple of floors, but it fell down at free-fall speed in six and a half seconds. There are several engineers and architects who have made the argument that it was a controlled demolition because, again, there's never been a steel building collapse due to fire. So how can it happen three times in one day?

    [Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.]

    There are many, many other things I could talk about, several inconsistencies we could talk about for a long time. If you read some of the authors like Mike Ruppert and Barrie Zwicker, and look at some Web sites, you can get a fuller account. A whole lot of insider trading occurred beforehand, and that's a huge red flag that there was foreknowledge of the event. There were large financial transactions made ahead of time, a lot of trades made to buy stock in United and American airlines beforehand with the expectation that those stocks were going to go down drastically. A lot of the hijackers from the list released by FBI -- a lot of those guys are alive. Many, many guys on the list are the wrong identity. One guy was a pilot for Saudi Airlines, another guy is living in Lebanon and is suing the U.S. government to clear his name.

    I'm compelled because as time goes on there is a greater and greater growing voice among people in areas involved with different aspect of that day. You have pilots speaking about what would be involved with trying to fly a plane into the Pentagon that day in the way that it was portrayed. You have architects and engineers speaking out over the actual explanation that jet fuel could melt steel and cause buildings to collapse. You have former people who worked in the Bush administration or the military who have come forward to express doubt about the official story.

    Consider the fact that the Bush administration really fought the formation of the 9/11 Commission the whole way. ... The commission didn't come together until a year and a half after the event. ... And you think about how the government spent $15 million on the commission to investigate 9/11, which sounds like a lot. But then you make the comparison that the government spent $40 million to investigate the Monica Lewinsky affair. I certainly share a lot of those views."  http://www.goerie.com

Despite the absence of any visible fire at the time of collapse, the government report alleges WTC Building 7 is the first and only steel-framed high-rise building in the history of mankind to collapse simply as the result of a fire.
