New Documentary Takes a Look at the 9/11 Truth Movement
On the anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, British filmmaker Dean
Puckett releases “The Elephant in the Room,” a new award-winning film
documenting his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Los Angeles September 10, 2008 — On the anniversary of the attacks of September
11th, British filmmaker Dean Puckett releases “The Elephant in the Room,”
a new award-winning film documenting his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement.
The Movement can best be described as a group of citizen activists from around
the world who don’t believe the U.S. government’s explanation of what happened
on September 11th. While there are a growing number of law enforcement personnel,
pilots, architects, engineers, and scientists joining the ranks, they have been
called everything from ‘patriots’ to ‘conspiracy theorists’ – with some right
wing talk show hosts going so far as to call them ‘jihadists.’
But In the documentary, “The Elephant in the Room”, the viewer is
introduced to folks who aren’t as dangerous as some would believe. They just
happen to be average citizens asking some very simple questions.
The film features interviews with numerous 9/11 Truth activists including Former
Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (who is currently running for President)
and William Rodriguez, a janitor of 20 years at the World Trade Center, who
testified that he heard and felt explosions in his building before it was hit
by a plane. Also in the film is Richard… Continue reading

Canada’s 9/11 Truth Movement reporting
The March on Ottawa 2008
is underway, and we have just received footage of the first leg, posted below.
Organizers will be updating footage as possible, adding it to Montreal

Last Sunday’s 9/11 truth protest in Brussels was a success!
BRUSSELS – SEPTEMBER 11, 2008
Last Sunday over 400 European truth activists ignored the rain and had a non-violent
march in Brussels. They gathered at 2 P.M. in front of the Berlaymont building
at Schuman, Brussels. At 3 P.M. they took a walk of 4 kilometers with a stop
at the US Embassy. Before the rally left, the organizers delivered a letter
to the assistant to Giulietto Chiesa, Euro-MP for Italy. Under police guidance
they tried to deliver a letter containing their request to start an independent
and international investigation to what happened in the U.S.A. just 7 years
ago. They were told that the embassy was closed and didn’t accept their letter
unless is was delivered by mail. There were no incidents during the protests,
and the organizers were once again very positive about the collaboration with
the Brussels Police.
Furthermore, the platform is endorsed by various Non Governmental Organizations
like The Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt (CATMD), CODIP, ReOpen911
and ATTAC Brussels. The first Belgian political party CAP (Comité Autre
Politique) joined the rally at the end.
The platform these people and organizations support is: "In solidarity
with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation of the 9/11
attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a serious decrease
of (y)our civil rights ("anti-terrorist"-acts, secret prisons, "Patriot
act", etc). We want European troops back home! We want European laws that
guarantee… Continue reading

Seven years ago, criminal terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon
were carried out on September 11th by hijacked planes leading to the deaths of thousands
of people. A month later, key figures in the print and broadcast media and members
of Congress were sent envelopes containing very lethal and highly weaponized
anthrax, which led to the deaths of journalists and postal employees. After
the initial shock diminished, there were calls for explanations, investigations,
accountability and a reasoned response that did not include war. The administration
ignored or openly opposed them. Instead we went into a call for permanent wars
that would last beyond our lifetime, changes in civil liberties both overt and
covert, a takeover of state power by the executive branch, and the creation
of a national security emergency state that would somehow protect us.
Cynthia McKinney was one of the few voices of reason during that time in the
Congress. Long an opponent of militarism and wars abroad, she also called for
explanations and accountability when information began to come to light about
multiple advance warnings and apparent foreknowledge of the imminence and methods
of the attack inside government intelligence agencies that still failed to prevent
it. She supported calls by the families of the 9/11 victims for an official
investigation in what was being termed a “failure of intelligence”
even though it more closely resembled a failure of response, of standard operating
procedures, and of government officials and… Continue reading

Details from the point of view of organizer, Carol Brouillet, with photos from
Terry Koch, Christine, and others
Richard Gage, AIA spoke
at the rally and marched with us. (In August NIST
came out with its official explanation of the destruction of Building 7 and
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth are at the forefront of challenging it.
Support them also by signing their petition for a truly independent investigation.)
Wolman, Green Party Candidate in California District 1, founder of the New
Broom Coalition and Impeach Cheney-Bush, also a member of the National Impeachment
Network also spoke and marched with us.
Sadot, who came up with the musical classics “Cheney’s
in the Bunker,” and “The Ballad of William Rodriguez” was
supposed to be with us, but his truck broke down en route- 800 miles away in
Wyoming. This year we did have our best prop–the replica of the Commission
Report with the giant holes in it, which was made for the San Francisco Tea
Party for 9/11 Truth.
We also passed out thousands of cards to promote our upcoming event.
9/11 Truth Seeker
On Sunday 7th September, about 400 protestors marched in Brussels during the second edition of the United for Truth March.
Despite the bad weather and the fact that the March took place during the same day as another popular event, the Belt (Belgian cycling event for the family), the number of protestors had doubled since the first edition of 2007. But measured against the enormous amount of work that went before it — months of campaigning in which literally thousands of posters had been put up — and the fact that the UFT-website announced that there would be at least 475 marchers, one cannot really say it was a tremendous success.
After a long wait to assemble at the Brussels Shuman Square (we were supposed to start marching at 2pm, but we got it underway only around 3pm), the trek through Brussels started. It was a 4 kilometer walk. What should have been the highlight of the march, was the handing over of our letter (demanding an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11), to an employee of the American Embassy in Brussels, became the low point of the day. One of the protestors, who went along with the delegates to hand over the letter, almost got arrested for merely running around with a camera. The delegates were turned away and told to send the letter by mail… For some, yours truly included, it was something not totally unexpected, but a letdown nonetheless.… Continue reading

An Interview with David Ray Griffin
On September 11, I entertained a couple of house guests, senior journalists from Scandinavia. I remember watching in horror and disbelief the unfolding drama, as the United States was being subjected to multiple deadly attacks on-screen. I turned to the international affairs editor of a major Danish paper and told her “This could not have been done by al-Qaida.” I am an Israeli and, as such, I have a fair “sixth sense” as to the capabilities of terrorists and their potential reach.
Enter David Ray Griffin. I was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance. He is emeritus professor of philosophy of religion and theology at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University. He has published over 30 books, including eight about 9/11, the best known of which is “The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé.”
On the face of it, his credentials with regards to intelligence analysis are hardly relevant, let alone impressive. But, to underestimate him would be a grave error. Being a philosopher, he is highly trained and utterly qualified to assess the credibility of data; the validity and consistency of theories (including conspiracy theories); and the rationality and logic of hypotheses. These qualifications made him arguably the most visible and senior member of what came to be known as the 9/11 Truth Movement.
In our exchange, he proved to be tolerant of dissenting views, open to debate, and invariably possessed of… Continue reading
Monday, September 8th, listen 10 pm – 12 am (CST) to Questioning War- Organizing Resistance on the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests in the first hour- Janice Matthews and Mike Berger and to our guests in the second hour- Erik Lawyer and Richard Gage, AIA
Richard Gage, AIA receiving a 2007 Heroic Citizen for 9/11 Truth award
Janice Matthews is the Executive Director of 911Truth.org . Janice was their outreach coordinator until September, 2005 when she became executive director. She is also co-founder of the now-archived 9/11 Visibility Project , and focuses on facilitating activism and encouraging ordinary people to become participants and leaders in their own lives and communities. She has a B.A. from the University of Kansas, half a masters in social welfare and extensive training in direct-entry midwifery. She is a mother of six, a Kansas City native and radical Christian, and is working now to create a more self-sufficient/interdependent lifestyle. Janice is outraged about issues facing military troops and veterans– abuse/rape, ‘depleted’ uranium, ‘immunizations,’ lack of care and support received–resulting in suicides and hundreds of thousands of homeless veterans, the horrifying ‘non-lethal’ weaponry used by the US, and our current mainstream media (please, “become the media”!)and believes decentralized people’s movements are our hope for successful, nonviolent change in America, as has so often been the case around the world.
TONIGHT — Conference Call with First Responder Representatives, 9/11 Victims’ Family Members
Join our Grassroots Development Call with 9/11 Family Members and First Responders’ Representatives, inspiring us for 9/11/08
Thursday, September 4, 2008 – 9 pm Eastern / 6 pm Pacific Phone number: 712-432-1001 – Access Code: 433027266#
911Truth.org is honored to host another in our series of monthly Grassroots Development calls this evening, and invite you to listen by phone or internet. As we approach the seventh anniversary of 9/11, we turn our attention this month to the family members and first responders most directly affected. The truth movement owes much to those who lost family members on 9/11/01 and to the first responders, who continue to carry the torch for justice. Without them, our quest for truth and accountability regarding the 9/11 attacks would certainly not have gotten as far as it has. They have exposed corruption while touching the hearts of many, and we offer them an opportunity to speak to us directly tonight.
Audio now available:
On the call will be Bob McIlvaine, father of Robert McIlvaine, Michele Little, sister of fallen firefighter David Weiss, founder of UniteInPeace and Second Responders , and Anne Marie Baumann, Senior Vice President & Secretary for the FealGood Foundation .
This call is open for everyone to listen in–please invite leaders and members of other activist groups, in addition to your own group members, to be on the call.…Continue reading
Listen to the show August 25, 10 pm -12 am CST

August 22, 2008
Listen 10 pm (CST) to Questioning
War-Organizing Resistance on WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com,
in the first hour to our guests – Michael Pengue and Kenneth Fernandez,
and at 11 pm (CST) in the second hour to our guests – Robert Lewis
and Drew Noftle.
Michael Pengue is the producer of the online film Montreal,
Next Terror Target?, he is also a co-founder of the Montreal 9/11 Truth
group- mtl911truth.org. He is a native
of Montreal, first generation Canadian of Italian born parents.
Two years after the events of 9/11, his friend, Kenneth Fernandez, expressed a very strong suspicion that 9/11 was an inside-job. From 2003 he read books and articles by Michael Ruppert, David Griffin, Daniel Hopsicker, Sander Hicks, Michel Chossudovsky and watched countless documentaries. In 2004, he joined the Canadian Action Party and shortly after became a member of their executive team (until early 2008 when I resigned as vice-president only to continue as a member and supporter of CAP). At the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 in Toronto, he met Ruppert and others and that drove him to be more active. Just a few weeks later his picture made it in the Montreal Gazette standing in front of the Montreal’s Imperial Theatre for the premiere of Michael Moore’s film ”Fahrenheit 9/11”carrying a sandwich-board reading ” 9/11 Was an Inside Job” and on the flip side “Fahrenheit 911 is Just… Continue reading
In light of the article posted below, we’re posting this rare example of a “fair and balanced” dialogue between two people who do not agree on all points, but are able to have a civil discussion of relevant facts without attacking each other’s character or motives.
While at the moment the destruction of WTC7 is the prime focus of the media, there are many other issues raised by people who challenge the government account of 9/11/01. In this interview hosted by the “Conscience of Kansas” Conservative Paul Ibbetson, listeners have the opportunity to hear more than just brief soundbites dismissed as if they have no significance. Thus, it is a public dialogue providing an opportunity for listeners to make up their own minds on the issues, or choose to look further at some of the evidence presented, but makes it far less easy to simply dismiss these ideas as ludicrous ramblings of a “nut,” as happens in most corporate media “interviews.” With this kind of reasoned discussion offered, we can allow ourselves to acknowledge our intellectual curiosity, rather than giving in to preconceived “beliefs.” Any criminal investigation must disavow personal beliefs in order to delve into the facts. Ask questions, do the research, draw your own conclusions.
Convictions make convicts of us all.

You may have noticed that lately I’ve been making movies that “force” people to go to www.historycommons.org (www.cooperativeresearch.org). I’m hoping people will see just how important a tool it can be.
Please support www.historycommons.org. They have been invaluable to me, and hopefully will be for you as well.

Vancouver BC – The Dishonourable Stockwell Day has let Canadians down again. On June 10th, 2008, the Honourable Libby Davies read a petition into Parliament that suggests that the 9/11 Commission report does not stand up to the facts, and that we need a Canadian investigation to justify our war efforts.
Canada allows a Minister up to 45 days to respond to any given petition. June 11th plus 45 days equals July 25th. Mr. Day is already 9 days late.
Below is my latest letter to Mr. Day re: the 9/11 petition. As of right now, it is the 5th letter I have sent to him, and the 5th letter that has been unanswered. I have always felt lucky to be Canadian since every time I email one of my MP’s, I always have received a reply. Always — except from Mr. Day. Below my letter to Mr. Day, is my letter to all active members of the Canadian 9/11 Truth Movement.
Letter to MP Stockwell Day:
Dear Mr. Day,
On June 10th, 2008, a petition regarding a Canadian investigation into the events of 9/11 was read into Parliament by Honorable Libby Davies. This petition was then forwarded to your office for review. We have been informed that the Ministry has days to respond to any such petition. The HANSARD record was made available June 11th, 2008. 45 days later July 26th came and went without an answer from your office.… Continue reading

A year ago, I announced in this forum the launching of my survey for a book
that would compile personal accounts of ordinary people active in the 9/11 truth
movement. Since then, I’ve been gathering dozens of revealing, often moving
stories from inside and outside the U.S., and I’ve begun to put a shape
to Voices for 9/11 Truth. Along the way, I’ve come to believe that what
we call the 9/11 truth movement is not really a movement per se. It’s
something else, something potentially more important, more meaningful, and maybe
even more impactful.
First, the obvious: we’re not exactly a homogenous group. Yes, there
is a shared commitment to prompt a thorough and impartial 9/11 investigation
and unravel the sinister mess behind the crime and cover-up, but we’re
not linked by bloodlines, gender, age, economic status, or any other common
entity. We’re no clearly defined, pre-established group seeking a platform
to gain rights or power — and anyway, we’d be hard pressed to put together
a thousand members for a rally, let alone hundreds of thousands. In fact, what
I’ve been most struck by in fielding these personal accounts and interacting
with the gutsy people behind them is the wide diversity of those who believe
that 9/11 was orchestrated from within our government.
That diversity should strengthen the sense of real community among 9/11 truthers
while further dispelling the government and corporate media’s ridiculous
attempts to marginalize and… Continue reading
Last night 911Truth.org hosted a conference call with Rep. Dennis Kucinich. If you missed it, or would like to listen again and forward to friends,
In addition, NoLiesRadio.org will rebroadcast this conversation at 11am Pacific Saturday. Following are the questions we asked him, as well as the full transcript, with a few links and very brief commentary, which we’re posting for convenience and further study.
We are grateful to Rep. Kucinich for his time with us, especially on the day he introduced a powerful Article of Impeachment against George Bush; to Allan Rees of NoLiesRadio.org for recording the call and making available; to Paul Deslauriers for organizing the call; and we’re grateful to all of you for listening, for submitting questions, and for your ongoing commitment to reclaiming our government!
At this time we most strongly encourage you to get on the phone, right now! Call every member of the House Judiciary Committee, over and over, to demand hearings on impeachment and a vote out of Committee and onto the full House Floor immediately. If your own Representative is a member of the Committee, double your efforts there. If s/he’s not a member, call anyway, and insist that they support this critical effort, cosponsor the bill, and work aggressively to push the Committee to move on this right away. Full committee member contact information is available at http://judiciary.house.gov/about/members.html , and a call to the main Committee number can be made to 202-225-3951, or email sent via… Continue reading

Speakers: Former Sen. Mike Gravel, 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine, Tony-award winning actress Christine Ebersole, investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, first responder John Feal
Support Grows for NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative
(New York, NY, June 13, 2009) — On Thursday, July 10th at 12 noon, at Foley Square in New York City, former Senator Mike Gravel, speaking on behalf of the New York City 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign, will call for a new and far reaching investigation of the crimes of 9/11. Advocating for the creation of an independent 9/11 Commission, Gravel states, “We’re trying to change the paradigm of human democracy, of human governance, and that’s what this [NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative] is all about, changing the paradigm of human governance right here in New York City by asserting that you saw something wrong that took place, and you want to address it through using the tool of the Initiative, the legislative power of citizenry to go after that fundamental change.”
Accompanying Sen. Gravel will be 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine who lost his son in the south tower, Tony-award winning actress Christine Ebersole, first responder John Feal, and former NSA analyst turned investigative reporter Wayne Madsen. Mr. Madsen, has recently voiced his support, stating many current and retired… Continue reading
Here is the letter signed by Senator John McCain stating that he does not have time to meet with Blair Gadsby (Hungry4Truth.com).
Members of the 9/11 Truth Movement, this is our “Call-to-Action”. It is time for each of us to organize our materials and schedule time with McCain’s Staff. David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Robert Balsamo and many others have been our courageous technical leaders. So many others have been diligently researching historical documents like Paul Thompson, Michael Ruppert, Nafeez Ahmed, Michel Chossudovshy, Jim Marrs, Webster Tarpley and many others. Courageous public officials have challenged the status quo and are calling for a new independent investigation including Senator Karen S. Johnson, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel, Robert Wexler, Yukihisa Fugita, Cynthia McKinney, Max Cleland and many others. Whistleblowers can now be “set free” to contact John McCain directly. Countless others in the Movement are also encouraged to contact John McCain’s Staff. You all get the point. There are thousands and thousands of us with tangible proof that the 9/11 Commission Report is seriously flawed, that the NIST reports are faulty in theories and the Popular Mechanics explanations are despicably misdirecting.
Blair Gadsby has laid… Continue reading
