The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) recently published their comments on the NIST draft for final report on WTC 7, as reported on 911Blogger.
CTBUH's comments and NIST's investigation are discussed on this CTBUH forum.
When one reads the exchanges, it becomes pretty obvious that DScott, the CTBUH Chairman, displays no interest at all in discussing any of the difficult questions raised by several posters about NIST's report and WTC 7 investigation.
This becomes even more obvious when one sees what kind of a "putsch" took place after I challenged DScott on the issue of evidence destruction, and after Chris Sarns of AE911Truth had concluded that NIST had changed their previous statements about the use of shear studs in girders in order to facilitate their latest theory.
All four of my posts and Chris' latest post were deleted and the discussion forum closed. On CTBUH's homepage it now reads "The forum on this topic has now closed, however, click here to read over the comments that were posted....."
9/11 Truth Hits Japan
2nd International 9/11 Truth Conference comes to Japan
The Corbett Report
03 November, 2008
The 2nd International 9/11 Truth Conference came to Japan this week, with sessions in Akita, Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo. The Corbett Report was in Osaka to report from the event and has obtained audio and video of the keynote speech by David Ray Griffin, as well as interviews with the conference organizer and attendees.
Some peripheral folks in the 9/11 truth movement claim that exotic high-energy weapons were used to bring down the Twin Towers. The overwhelming majority of credible scientists, engineers and others in the movement do not believe this.
The proponents of the star wars weapons theory argue that video footage shows metal spires "turning to dust", which they think proves that futuristic weapons were used.
Many of us have pointed out that the spires actually fell down, and that dust from the pulverized concrete simply fell off the spires as they were falling, hiding the fact that the spires were falling and creating the visual illusion that the spires were "turning to dust". For example, Reprehensor posted this video clip last year:
Investigative journalist Gary Webb refused to be complicit. For his courage, the Mockingbird character assassins remembered him with this hit-piece of an obituary: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/13/obituaries/13webb.html
After the 2004 election, five weeks before his "suicide", he called out the American people for their apathy and moral cowardice.
"What this election tells me, unfortunately, is that it doesn't matter to most Americans if their government lies to them repeatedly.
They no longer care if their leaders erode their civil liberties, push this country further towards a police state, or shroud their actions in additional layers of official secrecy.
They don't mind if their government operates strictly for the benefit of the rich and the corporate class, as long as their own taxes don't go up.
Nor do they care if their government spends itself to the brink of bankruptcy. As long as they feel threatened by some external evil, everything is permitted."
Great coverage of the visit by Richard Gage, AIA to Halifax, in Canada, on October 18th, 2008;
"Richard arrived in Halifax on a beautiful Friday afternoon. He met with Dalhousie University's architecture and engineering faculty, and dropped off information kits to many others. Richard then did a television interview with Nick from the King's College journalism program "The Fax"."
Here is The Fax interview, which will be aired on a local cable channel in Halifax;
Scientists Slam FBI Anthrax Probe
November 03, 2008
New York Post
It was an open-and-shut case, the FBI said.
But three months after agents pinned the post-9/11 anthrax mailings on Army scientist Bruce Ivins - who committed suicide as the FBI closed in on him - his former colleagues have approached a lawyer to sue the feds for fingering the wrong man, The Post has learned.
They argue that the FBI abused its power and violated its own policies as they probed an innocent man for six months.
One of Ivins' former colleagues was being aggressively pressured to confess to the crimes just two months before Ivins killed himself on July 29, he told The Post. And he identified at least one other employee who was under the same pressure.
