This story has now been updated with new information from Symposium organizers.
The New England 9/11 Symposium, held this past Saturday (5/17/08) in Keene, NH, was a tremendous success. We had a great turn out and received local and, of course, independent media coverage.
First, the morning began at 9:45 a.m. with Bob McIlvaine’s heartfelt speech, which is a reminder that, as Jon Gold put it, what we feel is nothing compared to what family members like McIlvaine feel. The part of his remarks that stuck out to me the most was when McIlvaine detailed his experiences researching 9/11 on his own and described his utter disgust with the 9/11 Commission. While speaking about the Commission he mentioned the day that Condoleeza Rice testified about the August 6th, 2001 PDB. To him it was obvious that Rice was spinning, lying, and not directly answering any questions posed to her by the Commissioners, who’s questions were light as it was. He talked of how outraged he was when, after Rice testified, family members were rushing to shake her hand. The deception was so blatant how could the others not see it? I, as well as many others, believe that Bob is very strong and very brave.
Next up was acclaimed Canadian media critic and author, Barrie Zwicker. Zwicker offered his excellent take on the media’s unwillingness to cover this issue. I had seen his presentation before in 2006 but it was watching Zwicker take the editor of The Keene Sentinel (a… Continue reading

ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS FOR 9/11 TRUTH
Richard Gage, AIA, Architect
May 12, 2008
Dear Honored Citizen(s):
You are invited to attend a forum at MIT concerning the Collapse of the 3 World
Trade Center high-rises on 9/11.
I am the founder of the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
which is a fast-growing collaboration of more than 350 architectural and engineering
professionals. The last few years have witnessed the emergence of mounting scientific
evidence that the collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not adequately
explained by the official theories outlined in the 2002 FEMA and 2005 NIST reports.
The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth call for a new, fully funded unimpeachable
Congressional investigation with subpoena power.
We are dedicated to presenting the evidence that supports our call in this
What the Evidence Shows
Sounds of explosions coming from each of the WTC Twin Towers were heard well
before the collapses began. These were reported by over 118 first responders
in the FDNY recorded “oral histories” (the release of which was
resisted by the City of NY until forced by a New York Times FOIA filing).Numerous
accounts of “flashes of light” which commonly accompany the detonation
of demolition charges were also reported. Video footage… Continue reading
David Ray Griffin
Continuing the 9/11 conversation.
Mike Malloy dedicated the second hour of his program to an intervew with David Ray Griffin. A wide-ranging talk about 911.
(If you support what Malloy is doing, consider becoming a NovaM Founder if you can afford it.)
We have one of our rare guests on tonight’s program. Philosopher/theologian Dr. David Ray Griffin will join us for a discussion of the events prior to the bombings and terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Those familiar with the 9/11 Truth Movement are well acquainted with Dr. Griffin and his points of view regarding those horrific acts against the people of the United States. As reported at wikipedia.com:
Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, David Ray Griffin moved his focus from questions of philosophy and religion to ones of politics and history, specifically “American expansionism and imperialism”. He intended to write a book on the subject, presenting 9/11 in terms of “blowback” for aggressive United States foreign policies of the 20th century: “Until the spring of 2003, I had not looked at any of the evidence. I was vaguely aware there were people, at least on the Internet, who were offering evidence against the official account of 9/11… I knew the US government had ‘fabricated’ evidence to go to war several times before. Nevertheless… I did not take this possibility seriously… I was so confident that they must be wrong.”
After reading the work of Paul… Continue reading
Canada’s 9/11 Truth Movement is peaceful, united, and committed to getting
a Canadian independent investigation into 9/11. From coast to coast, 9/11 Truth
Groups from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia have
realized that their strengths lie in their numbers of a united front, and united
they will be on September 11th, 2008.
Over the last couple months, the Canadians have been busy. First, the Vancouver
9/11 Truth Society took the initiative to mail a copy of Yukihisa Fujita’s
Parliamentary Presentation to all 308 Members of the Canadian Parliament. Since
then, 9/11 Truth activists across the country have been pressing their MP’s
by asking if they have received the video, taken the time to watch it, and ask
them their stance on 9/11. Shortly after, East Vancouver MP Libby Davies has
since agreed to take a petition to the Canadian Parliament requesting a Canadian
Investigation into 9/11 — and this is just the beginning. Currently, 10
cities in Canada have joined forces and are creating their first ever (and if
successful, the last) national campaign for 9/11 Truth…
As signatures are being collected from Canadians across the country, the authors
of the petition are working with MP Davies in getting the timing right for introducing
it into Parliament. The plan is to introduce the petition around August 1st,
2008, as Canada officially allows up to 45 days for answering any petition.
An August 1st submission will allow an answer forthcoming by September 11th,
In preparation of receiving an… Continue reading

Letter published at 911blogger.com
Finally! After submitting a half-dozen papers to established peer-reviewed technical journals over a period of nearly a year, we have two papers which have passed peer-review and have been accepted for publication. One of these was published TODAY! In science, we say that we have “published in the literature,” a major step in a nascent line of scientific inquiry.
And many thanks to the editors for their courage and adherence to science in allowing us to follow the evidence and publish in their journal. (Indeed, expressions of thanks along these lines to the editors will be appreciated, as they will probably get a few letters chastising them… )
The paper is here:
http://www.bentham.org/open/index.htm (our paper is listed on top at the moment, the most recently entered paper); or go here:
(Click on “year 2008” then scroll down to the paper and click on it.)
Yes, it is available on-line FOR FREE, since this is an “open e-journal.” TOCEJ = The Open Civil Engineering Journal. You may download the paper and make copies to give to local professors and engineers (hint, hint). That’s one reason this particular journal was chosen — open access, free to download and make copies. What do Profs/Engineers say about it — let us know would you?
In this Letter, we emphasize “points of agreement” with FEMA and NIST, seeking to build bridges for further communications. Of course, we will send a copy to NIST for their comment and hopefully open a public discussion on these crucial evidences and analyses.…Continue reading

There is an increasing number of Americans who believe that George Bush, Dick
Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and several of their toadies should be in prison, this
writer included. But to suggest that the Bush administration is somehow involved
in the 9/11 attacks seems to be a jaw-dropping and frightening stretch, but
not to the scores of interested folks who turned out to hear David Ray Griffin’s
talk March 28 at the Poinsettia Pavilion in Ventura. For those who get their
information from Fox News, such a charge is blasphemy, treason and worthy of
a perpetual Blackwater firing squad on YouTube. Griffin settled for frequents
bursts of applause.
The 9/11 tragedy is certainly not the first event in American history surrounded
by controversy and conspiracy theories, just merely the latest.
But as the pages blow off the calendar, witnesses die off, the trail grows
cold and interest wanes, assisted by the fact the American people have the attention
span of a butterfly sneeze.
But 9/11 is still fresh in everyone’s memory, partly because Bush can’t go
three minutes without playing the fear card and invoking the images of airplanes
flying into tall buildings. That memorable Tuesday morning happened less than
seven years ago and not only is it an annual school assignment, but many of
the participants and survivors are still alive with plenty of contradictory
stories to tell.

Griffin has heard all of them. A retired theology and philosophy… Continue reading
McIlvaine lost his son, Bobby McIlvaine, Jr., on 9/11.
Mr. McIlvaine attended every 9/11 Commission hearing and has been a vocal critic
of the official account of 9/11. As a member of September
Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, McIlvaine has traveled all over
the world speaking about 9/11, his perspective on the events of that day, and
demanding justice for his son and the other innocents who perished along with
An investigative journalist, author, and documentary film
maker, Hopsicker arrived in Florida two months after 9/11 to look into activities
of the alleged hijackers and their connection to Huffman Aviation. What he uncovered
became the basis for “Welcome to Terrorland: Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 Cover Up in Florida.” Hopsicker is still located in Florida and his up to date research can be found at http://www.madcowprod.com/.

Last Monday, March 31st, a historic event occurred. A conference call was held that involved a list of great American heroes, who have put everything on the line to protect their nation’s democracy. It was meaningful this occurred the same month as HBO’s release of John Adams.
A decision was made — April 16-22nd will be a WEEK of TRUTH !!
All are invited to get involved, by spreading the word on this event, as well as participating in the national “buy-in for truth week,” to finally break thru the corporate media blockade of 9/11 questions, at www.WeekofTruth.org
“. . . they [the majority of Americans] shall come to realize what I now realize… that the 9/11 Truth Movement are the real patriots in 21st century America!”
– Steve Alten, New York Times Best Selling author of “The Shell Game”
“Alone we can do so little . . . together . . . so much.”
– Helen Keller
This auspicious group came together to strategize how to collect the many powerful aspects of the growing movement pushing for answers to the endless unanswered questions around 9/11′s attacks, into one mass focused week of action. The goal . . . to break through the years of frustration with the (media) fourth estate’s betrayal of American democracy through their ongoing censoring of the questions regarding the increasingly obvious official myth of 9/11, which defies physics, logic, and FAA/DOD protocol.
As I sat in on this historic… Continue reading

David Ray Griffin on the 9/11 Truth Movement and Bush-Cheney’s “stupid” imperialism
By Matthew Singer
When David Ray Griffin conceived his first book regarding the events of Sept. 11, 2001, his interpretation of what transpired that day revolved around the concept of blowback, that the attacks were a byproduct of America’s decades of aggressive foreign policy toward the Middle East. In short, at the time, he bought the official story of 9/11. He wasn’t letting the United States government off the hook for their role in the attacks, but he wasn’t placing culpability where he would eventually place it: squarely on the shoulders of the Bush administration.
While researching for that first book, Griffin came across a growing community — concentrated mostly online — of people questioning the circumstances of Sept. 11 as reported by the mainstream media. Now, the retired professor, theologian and longtime Santa Barbara resident is one the leading voices of the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, citizens who believe the horror of that day was not caused by radical Islamic terrorists but was orchestrated within the walls of the White House. Derided in the press as loony conspiracy theorists (if given any attention at all), the group, Griffin says, now includes intellectuals such as himself, as well as architects, engineers, pilots, former military officers and even ex-CIA operatives.
“The change in the movement has been rather drastic, because a few years back, people would dismiss us as a bunch of crazies on the Internet. And then… Continue reading
FROM NEW YORK CITY!
THE 9/11 BALLOT INITIATIVE CAMPAIGN
CALLING ALL 9/11 TRUTHERS! YOUR SUPPORT IS NOW NEEDED!
Fellow 9/11 truth workers, at long last there is a campaign afoot that has the potential of harnessing the energy, knowledge and zeal for justice of the entire 9/11 Truth Movement, and that is the New York City 911 Ballot Initiative Campaign. What is the 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign? Simply stated, it is a citizen-based effort to allow the people of New York City the opportunity to vote for “a New York City 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.”
Some of the folks spearheading this historic endeavor include commissioners William Pepper and Lorie Van Auken, spokespeople Christine Ebersole, Bill Doyle, Bob McIlvaine and Donna Marsh O’Connor, and the hard working activists of NY911truth.org. Other commissioners include Mike Gravel and Lincoln Chafee, Ed Asner, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton and Ralph Schoenman. The campaign has been endorsed by Dr. David Ray Griffin, William Rodriquez and Karen Kwiatkowski, among others, and has received enthusiastic support from Kyle Hence, Sander Hicks, Peter Lance and various stalwarts of the 9/11 Truth Movement throughout the country. Now, we need you to get involved!
As you know, a genuine, evidence driven investigation of the crimes of 9/11 has never taken place. Now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to make it happen. In order to place the… Continue reading
Japanese MP Yukihisa Fujita of the Democratic Party of Japan, a member of the House of Councillors in the Diet of Japan
VIDEO: Japanese MP Yukihisa Fujita Speaks at 9/11 Truth Conference in Sydney (27 Mins)
Japanese MP Yukihisa Fujita of the Democratic Party of Japan, a member of the House of Councillors in the Diet of Japan (national legislature), spoke at the 9/11 Truth conference in Sydney today.
Mr Fujita is the single most important person to step forward to ask hard questions about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” this year.
Although the international conference is taking place in the centre of Sydney a stone’s throw away from Sydney parliamentarians, not a single Australian MP is in attendance at this important event.
Organizers of the conference had hoped that his attendance may encourage Australian Parliamentarians to examine the provably false official 9/11 conspiracy theory. He will be in attendance on the 15th (Sat) and 16th (Sun) and will make a short address on both days.
Australian media also failed to show up to the conference, despite excellent facilities and the importance of this event to Australians who are embroiled in Afghanistan and Iraq and currently conducting “cyber war games” with the Americans.
Hundreds of Australian citizens and international visitors are gathering over the weekend for the conference which is open to all and taking place at the prestigious Tattersall Club at 181 Elizabeth Street in Central Sydney, having been opened by a traditional Australian indigenous welcome speech… Continue reading
BRUSSELS, European Parliament, 26th February 2008.
Mark Dermul (www.911belgium) reporting.
On Tuesday 26th February, Europarliamentarian Guilietto Chiesa invited his colleagues and the press to attend the screening and debate of the Italian-produced documentary named ‘ZERO, an investigation into the events of 9/11′. Object of the screening was to create political awareness of the faulty official investigation into the events by the 9/11 Commission.
Besides Mr Chiesa, the panel consisted of Japanese parliamentarian Fujita, Dr David Ray Griffin, film distributor Tim Sparke & the director and producers of the film.
After his opening statements, Mr Chiesa welcomed his guest speakers. Then he pointed out that he was unable to find any distributor in his native country of Italy and was happy to find a company in the UK, led by Mr Tim Sparke, to handle worldwide distribution of this important film. ‘It is important to realize,’ he emphasized ‘that the movie was made thanks to contribution and donations of hundreds of citizens who feel a new investigation is more than warranted.’ No less than 450 people worked on this documentary on a voluntary basis. They never received any kind of payment. Their reward is the movie itself, which they feel is an instrument to create awareness and a means to provoke a political debate in Europe.
Since the movie projector didn’t work, Mr Chiesa invited the public to ask questions until the technical problems were solved and we could start watching the movie.

Film & debate in the European Parliamant about 9/11.
Brussels 26 February 2008 7pm, PHS 3C50 (this is where the debate will be held) — this event is NOT open to the public, only to journalists and the politicians. (Nevertheless, Belgian & French Truthers have their contacts and will make sure this debate is videotaped and put online afterwards).
Organised by the Italian Europarlementarian Giulietto Chiesa.
The documentary will be followed by a debat lead by Andreas von Bulow, Giulietto Chiesa, David Ray Griffin, Yukihisa Fujita, et al.
A few weeks after the Japanese parliament it is now Europe’s turn to open the debate on what really happened on 9/11. While journalists and politicians still support the official version of the events, defended by the Bush administration — in which the blame is laid on Muslims — the Europarliamentarian from Italy, Giulietto Chiesa, organizes an historical evening in the European Parliament in Brussels on Tuesday 26th February. He will present his film ZERO — 9/11: Europe for an Independent Commission of Inquiry.
This documentary is the result of 8 months of intensive research and interviews in Europe and the United States. It emphasizes the inconsistencies, manipulations, lies and omissions of the official inquiry. The film will be followed by a debate with Giulietto Chiesa himself (journalist and politician in Italy, member of the European Commission of Inquiry on the illegal prisons… Continue reading

Some of you may have seen the news regarding Philip Zelikow. If you watched Keith Olbermann tonight (2/1/08), you were in for a treat. During the time of the 9/11 Commission, the “Jersey Girls” called for the resignation of Philip Zelikow, as you can see from this clip from 9/11: Press For Truth“:
Essentially, the “original members of the 9/11 Truth Movement” “disreputed” the 9/11 Commission long ago, Mr. Holland.
