My lecture is entitled “9/11: Time for a Second Look.” In suggesting that it is time for people to take a second look at 9/11, I have in mind primarily people who decided long ago that the attacks of 9/11 happened essentially the way the Bush-Cheney administration and the official reports about 9/11 said they happened, and who therefore decided that the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, which disputes that account, is comprised of crazy conspiracy theorists with no capacity to evaluate evidence objectively. Having formed these views long ago, such people, including most journalists, have been impervious to any arguments presented by the Truth Movement. They simply roll their eyes and move on.
However, both the Truth Movement and the available evidence have changed dramatically in the past three years. Because of these changes, it is not rational to reject the claims of this movement out of hand, without taking a second look. If you are a person who has had such an attitude, you cannot, in the face of these changes, simply roll your eyes without exhibiting the very irrationality of which you accuse the people you dismiss as “conspiracy theorists.”
My lecture is also addressed, albeit indirectly, to fellow members of the Truth Movement. Some members have decided that, now that Bush and Cheney are out of office and the Obama administration has reversed some of their 9/11-based policies, getting the truth about 9/11 revealed is no longer so important. Other members of the… Continue reading

4pm, Westin Market Street Hotel
Live coverage available via a link at www.ae911truth.org
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact Phone: 510-292-4710
Berkeley, CA, April 25, 2009 — More than 640 Architects &
Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) are calling for a new, independent investigation
into the destruction of the World Trade Center high-rises. These building professionals
cite evidence of explosive demolition at all three WTC high-rises on 9/11 and
document the evidence at their website. Michael Heimbach, assistant director
of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, wrote
that their claims and conclusion were “backed by thorough research and analysis.”
AE911Truth will host exhibitor’s information booth #2609 at this year’s
annual convention of the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA).
The convention, with more than 800 exhibitors and more than 20,000 participating
architects, will take place in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, April 30-May
This exhibition will be followed up on Saturday May 2nd with a dynamic multi-media
presentation by AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA. Mr Gage will cover the
forensic evidence found at the crime scene as well as a review of the omissions
in the official FEMA and NIST reports. Join AE911Truth at the Westin Market
Street Hotel at 50 Third St. in San Francisco at 4:00 pm on Saturday for this
thorough review of the myth-shattering information.
STEVEN JONES, PhD, Professor Emeritus from BYU with a doctorate
in physics, co-editor of the peer-reviewed Journal of 9/11 Studies, and member
of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, will give presentations in Sacramento,
CA, on April 30th, and in Davis, CA, on May 1st.
“WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HIGH-TECH EXPLOSIVE MATERIAL DOING IN THE DUST CLOUDS
GENERATED ON 9/11/01?”
Janette MacKinlay, a wonderful artist who lived across the street from the Towers on 9/11 and has been an active, persistent advocate for 9/11 ever since, will also give a powerful 10-minute presentation entitled “Together we CAN.” She’ll also speak on “Getting the Dust to Where it Needed to be” — the journey of the dust from her apartment and beyond.

Yukihisa Fujita, a member of the Upper House of the Japanese Parliament has recently published a
“Questioning 9/11 in Japan’s Parliament – Can Obama Change the USA?”
Co-authors of book are David Ray Griffin, Yumi Kikuchi, Akira Dojimaru and Chihaya.
Councilor Fujita is a current member and former director of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defense. In this function he questioned 9/11 three times in parliament. Fujita claims that 9/11, as the main reason for the “War on Terror,” needs to be newly investigated in order to find peaceful solutions.
On April 8 there was a formal reception on the occasion of the publishing of Mr. Fujita’s book at the Tokyo Dome Hotel.
The event was organized and promoted by a large group of Mr. Fujita’s supporters including the Chairman of the daily newspaper Japan Times, several leading representatives of the Democratic Party and several business executives. They hosted the event in honour of Mr. Fujita.
Yumi Kikuchi, a well known peace and 9/11 activist, first presented a video lecture that had been prepared by co-author of the book, Akira Dojimaru, who lives in Spain and was not present at the event. The presentation explained in great detail the numerous main points that completely contradict the official 9/11 account of the US administration and the mainstream media. It was made clear that 9/11 is used to constantly justify wars.

Images and Words
Anthony Hall is like many other 9/11 skeptics. At some point, after examining the events of 9/11 and the international consequences of that foul deed, (particularly the
consequences that befell countries with a predominantly Arab/Muslim population), Mr. Hall decided to speak out. The difference between Hall and most 9/11 skeptics, is that Mr. Hall is a sitting academic at a university in Lethbridge, Alberta, in Canada.
Hall joined a growing list of Canadian academics who have chosen to speak out publicly; John McMurtry , Graeme MacQueen , Michael Keefer , and of course, Michel Chossudovsky , a pioneer in 9/11 skepticism.
He made his debut as a skeptic of the 9/11 Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) on September 6, 2008 in Edmonton, Alberta, with a reading of his paper, The Lies and Crimes of 911 . The paper is an excellent introduction to a series of complex, related studies, that encompass globalization, US imperial tendencies, and false-flag terrorism. Hall is well-versed in these issues, and won an Alberta Book Award for his volume, The American Empire and the Fourth World .
The cover features provocative imagery; Apache-like helicopters in place of stars on the American flag, giving no doubt as to Hall’s intent. The image is a very un-subtle, ironic reinterpretation of one of the prime symbols of the American dream; the very banner of Liberty itself is subverted to shock the viewer into a reevaluation of the iconic Red, White and Blue. Just as… Continue reading

"…there can no longer be any serious argument about whether Saddam
Hussein’s Iraq worked with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to plot against Americans."
–Stephen F. Hayes, The Weekly Standard, 2003
When discussing politics, if there’s one thing that sends people running for
the hills, it’s conspiracy theories — or worse, conspiracy theorists.
As with those who are deemed "racist" or "isolationist,"
conspiracy theorists are automatically dismissed by polite society, not necessarily
because they are wrong, but because of the nature of their arguments. And because
their ideas and opinions are outside of consensus politics or the mainstream
media, conspiracy theorists lack credibility simply for being outside the realm
Take, for example, what is commonly known as the 9/11 Truth Movement, a collection
of conspiracy theories that claim the terrorist attacks in 2001 were orchestrated
by the U.S. government. Watching 9/11 Truth videos online like "Loose Change"
or "Zeitgeist" raises many interesting questions, and might cause
even the most reasonable of folks to at least question the conventional wisdom
on the subject. Yet, by and large, the 9/11 Truth conspiracy remains a fringe
movement, taken seriously by few and laughed at by most.
But if 9/11 "Truthers" are wacky for believing the 9/11 attacks were
orchestrated by Uncle Sam, what about the conspiracy theorists who tried to
convince Americans that 9/11 was orchestrated by Saddam Hussein? Consider the
following from The Weekly Standard‘s cover… Continue reading
From Dr. Steven Jones
A back-scattered electron (BSE) image featured in the newly published paper.
“Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen
The paper ends with this sentence: “Based on these observations, we conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and is a highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material.”
In short, the paper explodes the official story that “no evidence” exists for explosive/pyrotechnic materials in the WTC buildings.
What is high-tech explosive/pyrotechnic material in large quantities doing in the WTC dust? Who made tons of this stuff and why? Why have government investigators refused to look for explosive residues in the WTC aftermath?
These are central questions raised by this scientific study.
The peer-review on this paper was grueling, with pages of comments by referees. The tough questions the reviewers raised led to months of further experiments. These studies… Continue reading

This last week-end of March, I had decided to hold a “9/11 Truth Garage
Sale” to make a Spring clean in my Brussels house. As my twins grew into
teens, you can imagine that I gradually assembled quite a lot of clutter.
Photo – 9/11 Truth in neon-lights, complete with Richard Gage’s video in the walk-by evening sound & light show!
A “9/11 Truth Garage Sale” is an excellent way to learn to know one’s neighbors
better. The 9/11 Truth theme allows you to easily start talking about the important
issues surrounding what really happened on September 11th 2001.
Already a member of Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth, I felt a surge of excitement at the
idea of inviting (together with www.vigli.org) Prof David Ray Griffin to come
to speak in Brussels. The last time we had this much fun, was when we had Richard
Gage over in November 2008 : read more here.) (Details of Dr. Griffin’s European tour are posted at timeforasecondlook.com.)
Always looking for ways to break the ice on the subject of 9/11 Truth, and
needing to publicize DRG’s conference which hopes to greet more than 600 paying
citizens, I put in an ad for a “9/11 Truth Garage Sale” in the local English
speaking weekly paper.
The back of my house was once a hairdressing salon, and later an internet-call-phone-shop. I had a big neon sign doing no good towards the back of my… Continue reading
Professor David Ray Griffin, renowned author of a series of eye-opening books that recount his painstaking research into the attacks of September 11, 2001, begins his new European tour in London on 14th April. Stressing the fact that the time has come for a second look at the events of that fateful day, the tour will include stops in Paris, Brussels and Madrid, and several other cities.
Professor Griffin’s talks will afford the public an excellent opportunity to learn more about the fundamental questions surrounding 9/11. The 9/11 Truth Movement, which started out as a disparate, grass-roots undertaking, has blossomed into a serious community that now includes many specialized branches, such as Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Lawyers for 9/11 Truth, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth, Veterans for 9/11 Truth, and Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice (a group which includes a significant number of prominent scientists). Many former intelligence officers also support the movement and have contributed to the ever-growing list of evidence that proves far beyond a reasonable doubt that the explanations provided by the Bush-Cheney administration are quite simply false.
As Professor Griffin states, “The mainstream media are reluctant to discuss the subject and politicians are loath to delve into disturbing facts that ultimately indicate that America has gone to war on false pretences.” Griffin says abundant evidence now exists that proves the Bush-Cheney administration broke… Continue reading

NYPD Central Booking (212) 374-3921
NEW YORK, NY — Last night, in an attempt to get Mayor Bloomberg to
answer questions about the Mayor’s alleged neglect of 9/11 First Responders,
three activists from the nation-wide “9/11 truth” group We Are Change were suddenly
arrested and held over night in Central Booking.
The Mayor had been at the Times Square Hilton for a fund-raising event. The
activists claim they were not asked to leave the premises, and were illegally
“All of the members of WeAreChange immediately complied with all instructions
given by the security detail so that they could exit the building but within
seconds arrest orders were given. According to WeAreChange camera operators,
there is video of these unlawful arrests as it appears that in some cases there
were no warnings given and some people were simply arrested just for being in
the lobby of the hotel.” Members of We Are Change also allege that police
engaged in unnecessary brutality. Three video cameras were confiscated.
Mayor Bloomberg was criticized this week for denying financial assistance and
traditional workplace protections to those suffering adverse health effects
from working at Ground Zero after 9/11/01. At a meeting of We Are Change at
the Amish Market deli near Ground Zero, yesterday, Rudkowski read aloud from
recent reports in the New York Post that criticized the Mayor. Rudkowski unveiled
a plan to have multiple camera/activist teams stationed around the Hilton that
night, to politely but firmly, ask the Mayor about First Responders.…

A number of 9/11 Truth activists converged from San Jose, Los Gatos, the East Bay, the Peninsula, San Francisco to make a sizable contingent with multiple banners and many, many signs at rally at Justin Herman Plaza and in the march. After much police harassment at the Civic Center for attempting to attach our large banners to trees, we broke down and bought a decent awning, so that we could legally put up our banners, and fend off the rain. The weather report was not promising, nor the looming clouds when I left Palo Alto at 8 am heading north. It is hard, if not impossible to pass out flyers, and not ruin our sound system, books, and educational materials when it is raining, and the turnout at rallies and marches is certainly smaller when the weather is bad.
The favorite spot of the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance at the Civic Center is away from the stage facing south, outside of the trees, where we generally have hoisted a giant banner of the Deception Dollar. Often the center of the Civic Center is full and the traffic is better on the outside. When we arrived at the Civic Center- all of the awnings had been set up on the inside of the… Continue reading
This march was OWNED by WeAreChange LA (with 4 massive banners) and all the
other 9/11 Truth activists from Southern California who came to Hollywood to
make sure that the world knows that not only are we not going away, we are bigger
by the day. It seems like the Peace Movement at large is waking up to the fact
that the only road to peace is one that deals with the crimes of September 11th.
Awesome showing this time! Thanks and praise and big love to all of you who
work so hard non-stop — you know who you are

For me the significance of this video includes:
1. Zinn is willing to support a place at the table for 9/11 truth advocates. He stated that as long as the conference has at least 22 presenters that we should be allowed to speak. Please contact me if you want to help make a list of such conferences and lobby for inclusion of our speakers. Big time left gatekeepers are likely to be less open minded than grassroots followers who would have no apologies to make. That is why we would go to these conferences.
2. Zinn asserts our case is too complicated. I urge us to discuss what single pieces of evidence standing alone are each sufficient to move us beyond whatever threshold we are seeking (real investigation, convictions, etc.)
3. All leftists should be susceptible to the argument that proof of inside job should undercut racist stereotypes of Muslim terrorists.
4. We should be able to find other major leftists who would agree to the importance of looking not just at civil liberties, but also resisting full blown police state with martial law. Truthers, leftists, and conservatives should be able to agree to work in coalition on this issue without getting bogged down in their disagreements.

The psychological barriers to 9/11 are enormous. Humor, art, music have helped the Truth Movement to help people overcome their fears and begin to look at the nightmare in the shadow of the American dream. One great comic, singer, writer, all talented ally on the side of truth, peace, justice has been Swami Beyondananda (Steve Bhaerman). If you have never seen him perform, you are really missing out on a wonderful, joyous, enlightening opportunity to laugh heartily. He also wrote an excellent article on David Ray Griffin, which was published as the cover story on three of our locally owned independent weekly newspapers (North Bay Bohemian, Santa Cruz Metro, Silicon Valley Metro)- Unquestioned Answers: Nonconspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin takes aim at the official 9-11 story. Recently Bhaerman was also named one of the Interim Sunshine Cabinet members at the American Citizens’ Summit. David Ray Griffin was also invited to speak at the summit, but he was too busy finishing his latest book.
I heartily recommend what should be a very enlightening conversation between two of my favorite 9/11 Truth heroes- David Ray Griffin and Steve Bhaerman. Here are details on the show from the Swami, himself:
