When Cynthia McKinney speaks the words of Martin Luther King Jr, they resound through the church with some of King’s cadence. “A time comes,” declares the former US congresswoman from Georgia, “when silence is betrayal.” The congregation answers with whoops and calls of “That’s right!” King was talking about America’s war in Vietnam. More than 40 years later, before the packed pews of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, McKinney is speaking of the American government’s war on its own people. The shock and awe phase of this conflict, we had been told earlier, began on September 11 2001, when the Bush administration launched attacks on New York and Washington, or at least waved them through.
According to a show of hands that February afternoon, several hundred people in the immaculate church believe this to be true. Some came in T-shirts bearing the words “9/11 was an inside job”. One wore a badge demanding that you “Examine your assumptions”. Quite a few bought the DVDs on sale in the foyer, most of which bore photographs of the Twin Towers spewing smoke. They had all come to hear the message of Architects, Engineers & Scientists for 9/11 Truth, one of the dozens of groups across the US which campaign to persuade us that everything we think we know about 9/11 is wrong.

Day 14: Blair was once again visited by many citizens from the Phoenix area. He
remains in good sprite and health. I would like to take this opportunity to urge
you to take 10 minutes out of Monday morning or afternoon and call one or two
of John McCains offices and ask Mr. McCain to sit down with Richard Gage as soon
as possible. This request has been made officially to McCain’s Arizona staff and
could possibly be fulfilled with your help.

Senator Mike Gravel Calls for New Investigation of 9/11, Supports NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative
(New York, NY, June 13, 2008) — On Tuesday, June 17th at 5pm, at Union Square in New York City, former Senator Mike Gravel, speaking on behalf of the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign, will call for a new and far reaching investigation of the crimes of 9/11. This comes in the wake of several developments which underscore the need for a truly independent, thorough, fact-driven investigation into the events of 9/11. Consider the recent book by NY Times veteran reporter Philip Shenon titled ?The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation? which highlighted the conflicts of interest of Executive Director Philip Zelikow. Consider the book by Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton titled ?Unprecedented? in which they stated they were “doomed to fail from the start” and they were lied to by NORAD regarding our absence of air defense. Consider the Articles of Impeachment nos. 33-35 by Dennis Kucinich which list hard evidence showing dereliction of duty, obstruction of justice, and malfeasance by the Bush administration. Consider the revelation of the destruction in 2004 of CIA tape recordings of suspects in Guantánamo Bay which were requested by the 9/11 Commission. Consider that Arizona Congresswoman Karen Johnson, who has called attention to the research of physics professor Steven… 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
British Broadcasting contorts itself again to blast 9/11 conspiracy advocates
(“The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower,” BBC 2, July 6, 2008)
If you want to kill a dangerous animal, you go for the jugular. If you want to demolish a building, you destroy its main supports. If you want to marginalize the burgeoning 9/11 truth movement, you attack its most popular points. This isn’t brain surgery.
In a recently broadcast documentary, The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower, the BBC presents the second of two programs confronting claims made by a growing activist movement comprised of people who doubt the official story of 9/11. This time the BBC looks into one of the most compelling areas of 9/11 research, the theory that WTC7 was brought down by controlled demolition.
The perfect vertical implosion of this enormous building—the last of seven WTC buildings to be completely destroyed on 9/11—was filmed from several excellent angles and is further supported by aerial photos (fig. 1). Those theorists who claim that the Twin Towers as well were brought down with explosives have enjoyed an exponential boost in credence from strong evidence supporting the intentional demolition of WTC 7.
Besides giving the green light to plans on paper since the GHW Bush administration to add Iraq and Afghanistan to the U.S.’s portfolio, many 9/11 truth researchers believe that the destruction of the entire WTC was the ultimate ground breaking, the first step in an epic municipal makeover; the total… Continue reading

NIST News Release:
The Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
will hold a technical briefing at 11 a.m. EDT on August 26, 2008, at its campus
in Gaithersburg, Md., on the findings and recommendations from its building
and fire safety investigation of the collapse of World Trade Center Building
7 (WTC 7). WTC 7 was a 47- story building that fell nearly seven hours after
the World Trade Center towers collapsed following the terrorist attacks of September
11, 2001. Completed over a three-year period, the NIST WTC 7 investigation presents
the probable collapse sequence for the building and provides recommendations
for improving building and fire safety in other buildings similar to WTC 7.
Shyam Sunder, director of the NIST Building and Fire Research Laboratory and
lead investigator for the federal building and fire safety investigation of
the World Trade Center disaster, will present the report and answer questions
via webcast from invited technical persons.
Debunking NIST’s conclusions about WTC 7 is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel
By George Washington
NIST lamely tried to explain the symmetrically (sic) collapse as follows:
WTC 7’s collapse, viewed from the exterior (most videos were taken from the north), did appear to fall almost uniformly as a single unit. This occurred because the interior failures that took place did not cause the exterior framing to fail until the final stages of the building collapse. The interior floor framing and columns collapsed downward and pulled away from the exterior frame. There were clues that internal damage was taking place, prior to the downward movement of the exterior frame, such as when the east penthouse fell downward into the building and windows broke out on the north face at the ends of the building core. The symmetric appearance of the downward fall of the WTC 7 was primarily due to the greater stiffness and strength of its exterior frame relative to the interior framing.
NIST can’t have it both ways. If the exterior frame was so stiff and strong, then it should have stopped the collapse, or – at the very least – we would have seen a bowing effect where tremendous opposing forces were battling each other for dominance in determining the direction of the fall. See also this .
In real life, the thick structural beams and “stiff [and strong]” exterior frame used in the building… Continue reading

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.

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

It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.
–Alice, from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
We’re hurtling down the rabbit hole. Gravity’s refuted. Black is white, and white turns bitter, transfigured by a mawkish Mad Hatter blithely chewing up our Constitution, juggling missile-shaped teacups, splashing sweet, light crude and cold blood everywhere. To anyone who’s passed through the last eight years believing whatever George W. Bush and his minions have blown their way, well, best of luck to you, because most of it hasn’t been true.
Does that mean, then, that W. and his cronies were behind the 9-11 attacks? Of course not. Some say, however, if it looks, waddles and quacks like a duck and lays duck eggs, then perhaps it’s time we re-examine it under oath, because it just might be a friggin’ duck. (Fact: Nixon White House audiotapes reveal Tricky Dick literally quacking like a duck. Nixon was a lot of things, but ducky wasn’t one of them.)
We’re all mad here.
–the Cheshire Cat
Ken Jenkins, a Marin-based videographer, electrical engineer and activist with the 9-11 Truth group, tells of one who responded to certain provocative conjecture with “I wouldn’t believe it–even if it were true.” It , of course, is the widely held and yet wildly contentious belief that elements within our own government bear responsibility for the… Continue reading

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.
Almost everyone was late to the rally, although I was up at 5:30 am, I had
to set up the booth for Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance at Speedway
Meadow before heading to the Panhandle. Richard Gage had just had 2000 new DVDs
made which inconveniently needed to be transported to San Francisco… Continue reading

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

Re: Public Comments on WTC 7 Draft Reports
Dear Mr. Cauffman,
I am writing on behalf of a group of scientists, scholars, engineers and building professionals who are dedicated to scientific research regarding the destruction of all three high-rise buildings (WTC 1, 2 and 7) on September 11, 2001. We have examined the draft reports recently released by NIST purporting to explain the demise of WTC Building 7 (collectively referred to herein as the “Report”). We have found many areas that need to be revised and re-examined by NIST personnel before they release a final report on this matter. We have provided our names and affiliations at the end of this document, in accordance with the guidelines for submittal of comments promulgated by NIST at (http://wtc.nist.gov/media/comments2008.html).
At the outset, we would like to call attention to the fact that we requested a reasonable extension of time for the public to submit comments. Given the rate at which we were finding incorrect or contradictory statements in the Report, we would likely have found many more areas NIST needs to re-examine before issuing a final report. As we pointed out in our original correspondence with you requesting the extension, the original three week deadline was completely unreasonable. First, it took NIST more than three years to compile this 1000+ page Report. Why, then,… Continue reading

“Plan por la Verdad”
Richard Gage, Tour Europeo, 2008
Hace más de siete años desde el 11 de Septiembre de 2001 y los detalles de ese horrible día están empezando a decaer en la mente del público, pero son pocos los que niegan que los cambios en política interior y exterior de todo el mundo después del 11-S sigan afectando a nuestras vidas.
Tanto por los millones de víctimas en Irak y Afganistán, o la legislación antiterrorista que ha comenzado a desmantelar las libertades civiles de los europeos, o el aumento de la vigilancia estatal en Europa, el 11-S ha tenido un efecto sobre todos nosotros.
A pesar de que han pasado más de siete años, aumentan tanto las dudas sobre la versión oficial del 11-S como las preocupaciones por sus consecuencias nefastas. No hay mejor indicador de esto que las numerosas teorías alternativas,… Continue reading
From Arno Mansouri in Paris, where Richard Gage, AIA spoke on Thursday night,
November 13, 2008
were 242 people attending the presentation (which was slightly above the number
of seats of the venue) on Thursday the 13th of November: a full house indeed
We actually had to refuse some people even though we did put a notice on our
site stating that it was fully booked, and asking people NOT to come if they
had not made reservations already — do note that we probably could have had
about twice as many people if we have had the adequate hall (we had to settle
for this movie house, a larger venue was way too much money for our finances,
unfortunately) and therefore, we had to cease advertising the presentation a
few days before it was held…
We then decided to put the emphasis on getting the info to local (French)
professional architects & engineers, and there were 42 architects and 41
engineers present that night.
Hopefully, a fair amount of the above mentioned professionals will meet up
and create a group of their own, in connection with both A&E and ReOpen911.info
We are going to see to that; it is also just as important that these professionals
pass the information they received to their friends and colleagues, in every
country M. Gage visits.
Everything went fine, as these figures show:
Believers of the Official Conspiracy Theory:
Before the presentation: 13
After the presentation: 1
Before: 62… Continue reading
