Manny Badillo about NYCCAN

Poster for NYCCAN Vote for Answers
We are one week away from the eighth anniversary of 9/11/2001. Eight years ago next Friday, our world changed.

There are many unanswered questions, and many people who won’t rest until they get the answers. During the first hour of tonight’s show, I’ll speak with two of them.

Manny Badillo lost his uncle in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Janette Mackinlay lived right across the street from the twin towers, and was in her apartment when the planes hit, and blew her windows out… and lots of debris in.

Both are now involved with the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (http://www.nyccan.org/)– a non-partisan organization comprised of 9/11 families, survivors and concerned citizens committed to bringing about an independent, impartial investigation into the events of 9/11/01.

Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ show probes 9/11 mysteries

Stephen C. Webster

December 12th, 2009

Image of Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory ShowFormer Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has seen some stuff that will blow your mind.

Or, at least that’s the tagline to “Conspiracy Theory,” his new show on US cable station TruTV. In episode two, the one-time wrestler and movie star goes after one of America’s greatest sacred cows: the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

It is, as far as this reporter can tell, the first time a syndicated program on U.S. cable has given a serious look at arguments made by members of the 9/11 truth movement.

In the show, Ventura speaks to key 9/11 truth figures such as former BYU professor Steven Jones and William Rodriguez, a nationally-acclaimed hero credited with saving dozens as he tried to escape from the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11.

Ventura explores theories ranging from the missing black box recorders to the possibility that previously-planted explosives brought down the WTC towers.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology, which investigated the WTC tower collapses, maintains there was no recovered evidence of explosive materials. An electronic FAQ to the government’s theory is available online.

Almost without saying, the program leans heavily toward the conspiratorial-minded. Yet for many viewers, this may be their first exposure to such claims.

According to a TruTV press release, “Conspiracy Theory” hit the airwaves with the brunt of 1.6 million viewers, driving an 82% increase in the network’s viewership over 2008. In only its second week, “Conspiracy Theory” is TruTV’s most… Continue reading

Ventura: ‘You’re not allowed to ask’ about 9/11

By Muriel Kane

RawStory.com

Phot of Jesse Ventura Former Minnesota governor and one-time professional wrestler Jesse Ventura has run afoul of the Huffington Post’s no-conspiracy-theory policy, and he’s not happy about it.

“I can’t believe the Huffington Post today will practice censorship,” Ventura says in astonishment. “I’ve got news for them. … I won’t ever write for ‘em again.”

Ventura had posted an item on Tuesday which took note of a recent conference at which “more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.” He also quoted a few paragraphs from his new book, American Conspiracies, to explain why some of those experts see signs of controlled demolition.

The item was featured on the front page of Huffington Post when it first went up, but after a few hours it vanished. All that appears now at its original location is an editor’s note saying, “The Huffington Post’s editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories — including those about 9/11. As such, we have removed this post.”

The note is followed by three pages of comments, enthusiastically arguing the pros and cons of controlled demolition and other 9/11 theories, that were posted during the couple of hours before the entry was deleted and comments were closed.

Huffington Post’s own guidelines for its bloggers state, “We must — and do — reserve the right to remove objectionable, inaccurate,… Continue reading

Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Back Erik Lawyer, Founder of Firefighters for 9-11 Truth

Interview by John Bursill
April 8, 2010
Listen Here: http://visibility911.com/blog/?p=1694

Erik Lawyer with John Bursill

343 brave New York City Firefighters died on 9/11. This episode of Visibility 9/11 is dedicated to them!

If you have not heard the name Erik Lawyer it is one to remember. Erik is a full time firefighter and is a new, shining light in the 9/11 Truth Movement. He has been impressing all he meets with his simple message demanding a thorough criminal forensic investigation of the 9/11 World Trade Center catastrophe. He and his fire-fighting comrades want the authorities to do their job and carry out an investigation in accordance with fire scene investigation protocols, to which he and all US firefighters adhere religiously.

On 9/11 so many things happened for the first time and the one that is of greatest concern to Erik and his group, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth , is the near complete destruction of evidence at this fire crime scene and the subsequent monumental cover up and obfuscation of the little remaining evidence. Independently gathered evidence clearly demonstrates that incendiaries and explosives were used to facilitate the three WTC buildings destruction. For more information, see the Visibility 9-11 Special Report, Thermite Fingerprint- The Loaded Gun of 9-11 .

In this latest interview, John and Erik talk about the future plans for Firefighters for 9/11 Truth and their achievements so far as well as the strong bond being formed… Continue reading

Three Interviews – Jon Gold, Cosmos, Michael Badnarik

Following are three interviews provided by Jon Gold, long-time truth activist in Pennsylvania.

Jon Gold Interviews Cosmos, Founder of truthaction.org , at Ground Zero – 5/1/2010

Snippets:

“… Until there is justice for this mass murder, this gigantic mass murder, then it’s going to be a part of my life and I’m going to be dedicated to doing what I can to get justice. All I’m interested in 9/11 is a legitimate, independent, criminal investigation of the crime, leading up to prosecution of those responsible for this crime. ”

“One of the saving graces of being in this world is knowing that there are a few committed, caring people who are willing to do something despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, despite the fact that it seems like no one gives a shit – who, because they care, because they know it actually is important, they’re willing to do something. To those people, I say thank you.”

“… I’ve been involved actively in this cause since early 2002 so that’s a little more than eight years now. Over the last two or three years I really reached a point where it’s burnout, it’s too much, it’s too much trauma all the time. When you’re really working against … seemingly insurmountable odds. At the same time you’re being attacked by people who are supposedly ‘on your side’, on the same team. All the crap that goes with this, it’s a burnout. So I was smart enough to just really try to take… Continue reading

Canadian Controversy over 9/11 Truth Presentations by David Ray Griffin

UQÀM staff denounce 9/11 Truthers speech
May 4, 2010
CBC News

Administrators at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) say they will develop a formal policy for outside groups renting campus space for events after a controversial lecture about 9/11 drew fire by academic staff.

But the French-language university defended its right to have contentious speakers lecture on campus as part of free speech, saying it was appropriate to debate ideas, as long as events don’t incite riots.

Show Editor’s Note »

David Ray Griffin’s current speaking tour, during which he’s presenting a talk entitled “Is the War in Afghanistan Justified by 9/11?”, has sparked quite a controversy in Canadian press. Following is a compilation of media articles as well as videos of his speech in Chicago and Walkerton, Ontario.

The tour wraps up this week with U.S. engagements in Portland, ME on May 6, West Hartford, CT on May 7 and Cambridge, MA on May 8. (Details at TS911T.org )

The Monday night lecture, hosted by World for 9/11 Truth, drew about 700 people who came to hear from two U.S. academics who deny the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were carried out by terrorists.

The researchers — David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage — believe the U.S. government played a major role in orchestrating the deadly attacks on New York City’s Twin Towers and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

Griffin and Gage are lobbying for an independent inquiry into the attacks, which killed 3,000 people. Their theories — part… Continue reading

PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome back to The Real News Network. And it’s the first perhaps annual Real News Webathon. We’re heading towards our $200,000 target by the end of December 9, where I think we’re getting upwards of $165,000 now, with another tonight and tomorrow night to go. So we’re doing very well, and I want to thank everybody so far for donating. And if you like what The Real News is doing, please give us a little tap on the donate button here, or you can call 888-449-6772, or you can also email us at contact (at) therealnews (dot) com if you’re having any other trouble. But the best thing is just to hit the donate button. The $200,000, I’ve explained before, covers just barely four months of the work that we’re doing now at the level we’re doing now, but we really want to expand in 2011. We need producers that specialize in certain areas. And one of the areas we want to specialize is the military-industrial complex. We’d like to have a producer who does nothing but cover stories about the sort of underpinnings of US foreign policy and the real issues that don’t get discussed very much in terms of what’s driving much of global politics, and even, as I–in the current WikiLeaks there’s a layer of truth, one could say, that is not really revealed in these WikiLeaks, because they’re not top secret, as we’ve… Continue reading

The UN, Israel-Palestine and 9/11 Scholarship: A Discussion with Professor Richard Falk

In this discussion, Professor Falk gives his assessment of the political context of the criticisms he is facing for identifying Israeli crimes in the treatment of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, and for referring positively to the scholarly contributions of Professor David Ray Griffin and other academics who have identified serious shortcomings in government and mainstream media interpretations concerning the contested events of 9/11.

Interrogating the Arizona Killings from a Safe Distance

by Richard Falk

January 13, 2011

Foreign Policy Journal

…The arguments swirling around the 9/11 attacks are emblematic of these issues. What fuels suspicions of conspiracy is the reluctance to address the sort of awkward gaps and contradictions in the official explanations that David Ray Griffin (and other devoted scholars of high integrity) have been documenting in book after book ever since 2001. What may be more distressing than the apparent cover up is the eerie silence of the mainstream media, unwilling to acknowledge the well-evidenced doubts about the official version of the events: an al Qaeda operation with no foreknowledge by government officials. Is this silence a manifestation of fear or cooption, or part of an equally disturbing filter of self-censorship? Whatever it is, the result is the withering away of a participatory citizenry and the erosion of legitimate constitutional government. The forms persist, but the content is missing. …

Interview with Dr. Niels Harrit on Discovery of Nano-Thermite in WTC Dust

by Jeremy R. Hammond
March 7, 2011
Foreignpolicyjournal.com

 

Face to Face with Dr. Niels Harrit: “There is no doubt that this building was taken down in a controlled demolition…” from I.C.T.V. Victoria on Vimeo.

Dr. Niels Harrit is a retired associate professor of chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and one among an international team of scientists who published a paper in The Open Chemical Physics Journal on the discovery of nano-thermite
in the dust from the World Trade Center collapses on September 11, 2001. He has recently finished a lecture tour of Canadian universities, where he spoke on the subject.

In this interview on the cable program Face to Face with Jack Etkin, Dr. Harrit discusses this finding and its implications. Dr. Harrit notes that World Trade Center building 7 (WTC 7), a 47-story steel-framed skyscraper that was not hit by one of the planes on 9/11, collapsed symmetrically into its own footprint, and that the official explanation for this is that it was due to fire. However, the finding of nano-thermite in the dust, along with other available evidence, leads inescapably to another conclusion. “There is no doubt that this building was taken down in a controlled demolition,” says Dr. Harrit. “I consider this to be [a] mainstream scientific conclusion. There’s no way around this conclusion. There are so many observations that are only compatible with a controlled demolition.”

“Science is based on observation and experience,” says Dr. Harrit in the interview. Point out that it… Continue reading

The NS Interview: Donna Marsh O’Connor, peace activist

8 September 2011
The New Statesman

 

“I can’t believe I haven’t seen my daughter in ten years.”Image of Donna Marsh O'Connor

You lost your daughter in the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. Does the tenth anniversary feel particularly painful?
You want people to remember the date for the right reason – that hate engenders hideous things. Time heals in some ways, but I can’t believe I haven’t seen her in ten years. I did an interview in New York City recently and came home on the plane, and when the lights dimmed in the cabin, I lost it. I didn’t want to be on my own on a plane sobbing. I just kept thinking  about the day of her birth.

Do you remember 11 September 2001 clearly?
Of course. To be honest, I don’t want to remember. It was absolutely exquisite: the crispest, clearest, sunniest morning on the East Coast, warm and beautiful, and sad because it was getting near the end of summer – but it was almost so beautiful that it made you OK with that.

How did 9/11 transform the US?
From that moment, there was a decision on the part of the Bush administration to give up the American way of life. In so  many significant ways – the constitution, the Patriot Act, Guantánamo Bay, military tribunals, torture, water- boarding, Halliburton [oilfields], endless war.

Has your perception of your country changed?

I was raised on this heady idea that America had an ethical… Continue reading
