On Oct. 15th and 16th, New Yorkers filled two venues to hear the prominent theologian and author of two books on 9/11 give a presentation entitled “The Destruction of the Trade Towers: A Christian Theologian Speaks Out.” Dr. Griffin has continued to blaze a trail of courage, leading where most media and elected officials have feared to tread. His presentation went straight to the core of one of the most powerful indictments of the official story, the collapse of the towers and WTC 7.
Dr. Griffin included excerpts from the firemen’s tapes which were recently released as a result of a prolonged court battle led by victim’s families represented by attorney Norman Siegel and reported in the NY Times. He also included statements by many witnesses. These sources gave ample testimony giving evidence of explosions going off in the buildings. A 12 minute film was shown for the audiences, who saw for themselves the undeniable evidence for controlled demolition.
Dr. Griffin listed ten characteristics of the collapses which all indicate that the buildings did not fall due to being struck by planes or the ensuing fires. He explained the buildings fell suddenly without any indication of collapse. They fell straight down, into or at least close to their own footprints (rather than falling over), and at virtually free-fall speed, meeting virtually no resistance as they fell–a physical impossibility unless all vertical support was being progressively removed by explosives severing the core columns. The towers were built to withstand the impact… Continue reading

WASHINGTON – July 21 – On Friday, July 22, 2005, one year to the day after the release of the “9/11 Commission Report,” Project Censored founder, Dr. Peter Phillips will lead a National Press Club briefing entitled “The Failure of the 9/11 Commission Report and the Mainstream Media’s Disregard.” The briefing will feature scores of detailed examples of the Commission’s flawed findings, self-censorship, misrepresentations and conflicts of interest that call the accuracy and integrity of their entire investigation into doubt.
Time: 1:00-2:30 PM, Friday, July 22, 2005

Lead presenters are 9/11 family members and Family Steering Committee cofounders, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken. After the FSC members’ 18 months of lobbying finally forced a 9/11 investigation and the Commission’s creation, they submitted hundreds of unanswered questions that Commissioner Jamie Gorelick promised would be their investigation’s “road map”. However, by these courageous widows’ count, the Commission ignored approximately 70% of their concerns, and also suppressed important evidence and whistleblower testimony that challenged the official story on many fronts.
