It is so amazing how much is being said lately about 9/11 each and every week. What is even more amazing is how the mainstream media continues to ignore the 9/11 elephant in the room. When I first started this blog I was worried that covering only new 9/11 related news would be to narrow a scope to be consistent, guess I was wrong.
So, kick back, relax, and catch up on a ton of 9/11 related stuff from this week.
Here is a bit more about Tucker Carlson's interview with the physics professor who put forth a paper claiming explosives were used to destroy the WTC on 9/11... just prior to the professor's appearance on Carlson's program, Tucker's guest was someone from the Weekly Standard (this guy was a regular guest).
Its been an incredible week, hopefully someone will pick up the torch:
The BYU professor, who thinks explosions most likely brought down the twin towers, is now limiting his media appearances to only 'peer reviews.' Read his last words to the media here in the Arctic Beacon.
The BYU physics professor who thinks explosions brought down the WTC said Wednesday he's "bowing out of the limelight" and limiting his media appearances to only academic peer reviews.
Conservative Professor Steven E. Jones has been barraged by media appearances since releasing a 19 page paper last week, saying "pre-positioned explosives" most likely brought down the twin WTC towers as well as WTC No. 7.
It has been a long couple of nights for me and others waiting up 'til the crack of dawn to report on Tucker's latest statements. So tonight I'm going to catch up on some things, and leave the reporting up to you guys.
Send in your comments and new articles and later tonight I'll post a grab bag of your submissions and a few email submissions I've received as well.
Tonight Tucker Carlson played one voicemail from a caller who thought he was wrong in his slander of Jones, and another from a FDNY firefighter who thought he was right, and that Steven Jones was a 'quack'. Tucker then said that 'he knew' that Steven Jones was 'a quack', and that 'it is because of people like you that I had qualms about that story in the first place, people who lived through that day' (referring to the FDNY caller).
Tucker Carlson is either as silly as his bow tie would indicate, or he's looking for a way to expose the truth behind 9/11. Today he posted "9/11 Theorist Clearly Hits A Nerve," regarding public response to his Monday night show with BYU Professor, Steven Jones.
Carlson first insinuates Jones is "insane," then accuses him of being unable to articulate his hypothesis, calling him "an epically bad guest." Apparently, Jones was expected to clearly articulate the hypothesis presented in a 26-page scientific paper in six minutes, minus Carlson's repeated interruptions promoting the official line. (Let's also not forget that 'The Situation' refused to show footage of the WTC7 collapse, which would have essentially made the case despite Carlson's best attempts to prevent Jones from doing so.)
Tonight on Tucker Carlson's 'The Situation', Tucker responded to calls he received stating that Steven Jones was not given enough time on last night's show by stating:
[referring to the caller]your one of dozens, scores, maybe hundreds of people who called and wrote after our segment last night..
9/11 and Internet credibility - By Mary Maxwell, Ph.D.
How long must we wait to judge the validity of the September 11th conspiracy theories that have floated around on the Internet for years? I believe there is a way to grant status and authority to the many excellent reports and analyses whose only sin is that they appear in electronic form instead of newsprint. Moreover, we should start this process right away. After all, if our government is behaving maliciously, we need to know it, communicate it to others, and act on it with urgency. This will require that we make judgments about September 11th now and not wait for 'perfect proof.'
Unfortunately the interview was relatively quick at just 6 minutes, and Jones' did not use his short time as best as possible to highlight the points of his recent paper to the American public.
In The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11, I summarized dozens of facts and reports that cast doubt on the official story about 9/11. Then in The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I discussed the way these various facts and reports were treated by the 9/11 Commission, namely, by distorting or simply omitting them. I have also taken this big-picture approach, with its cumulative argument, in my previous essays and lectures on 9/11. This approach, which shows every aspect of the official story to be problematic, provides the most effective challenge to the official story.
A rumor is floating around that Steven Jones will be on Tucker Carlson's show tonight at 11:15pm EST.
I am guessing this rumor will prove to be untrue, but keep an eye out.. Hopefully I'm wrong.
I am told that Jones contacted Griffin and told him to let us all know, and that is where this rumor came from. I pray this is correct.
EDIT: The video can be found here.
On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. Rumsfeld stated: "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions."
Such a disclosure normally would have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the attack on New York City and Washington in the morning would assure that the story remained buried. To the trillions already missing from the coffers, an obedient Congress terrorized by anthrax attacks would add billions more in appropriations to fight the "War on Terror."
Not really 9/11 related, however, the next time you're spreading the truth, and someone claims the government wouldn't lie, trick, and deceive the public to further their agenda, send them here:
With the video from Jordan showing a woman making shocking accusations, it is worth recalling the last time when a woman was shown on TV making shocking accusations.
The day after Iraq invaded Kuwait, the Kuwaitis living in the US hired the public relations firm Hill and Knowlton - a job worth $1 million a month. This was the biggest ever contract in the history of public relations to improve the image of their corrupt, oil-rich regime.
In the Vegas area? Here's a chance to protest and spread the truth:
Penn Gillette will be signing copies of his new book, "How to Cheat Your Friends at Poker: The Wisdom of Dickie Richard, what are you waiting for?", as well as reading excerpts and taking questions.

Interesting quotes, follow the link for more information. Warning, its a huge page, takes a while to come up:
"Someone had fired missiles at the World Trade Center's north tower from atop the nearby Woolworth Building."
"...we just had a second explosion, possibly a missile from the roof of the Woolworth Building."
"They're shooting at the Trade Center from the Woolworth Building."
"The first one they think was a guy shooting the missiles off the Woolworth Building."
"Woolworth Building! They're firing missiles from Woolworth Building!"
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
As a testimony to a couple of legendary but fictional detectives, I once wrote a pair of Internet essays called "Detective Columbo Asks: Was 911 An Inside Job?" and another entitled, "Sherlock Holmes & 911...The ULTIMATE Unsolved Mystery." Just imagine the conversation detective Columbo might have had with Watson and Holmes, as that trio stared at the pile of wreckage in the weeks after 911.
You heard it folks, they want to hear from us, so have your say. While some may not approve of Howard Stern, he is a pretty good example of someone who can admit when they were wrong regarding Bush and the war. These days you can hear him talk about the need to get out of Iraq immediately.
Lately he has also been mentioning global warming and also has a link on his website promoting alternative fuels, citing the need to lessen our dependence on oil. Thanks to his girlfriend, he has also been mentioning the plight of homeless animals quite a bit too.
And occasionally, 9/11 truth slips out on his show, thats where I was initially exposed to the truth a little over a year ago. I frequently send emails to them hoping that one day they'll end up on their news segments. Now we have another method:
I just discovered this yesterday, and it may be nothing, but thought I'd post it to help all the researchers out there. This is something I had never heard about until now, is anyone else aware of this report or have any idea how it was resolved?:

Prim, proper and Republican-looking BYU professor crosses into uncharted 9/11 truth waters. Bush attack dogs lurking around every corner. Watch your back, professor!
By Greg Szymanski
The story of the day in the 9/11 truth world is the prim, proper and conservative-looking BYU physics professor, coming out of the closet with a 19 page report about how the WTC buildings, defying laws of gravity, most likely collapsed due to â€œpre-positioned explosives.â€
Professor Steven A. Jonesâ€™ highly provocative and scientifically researched report, concluded the governmentâ€™s jet fuel theory was inconceivable due the nature of the freefall of the buildings, the towers falling in a matter of seconds within their own footprints exactly like a controlled demolition.
Alex Jones interviewed Steven Jones, BYU professor who released an article arguing that demolition, not fires, brought down the towers. You can find the previous article on Steven Jones here
Wow, lots to post today!! These are exciting times, this thing is hopefully hurtling towards its conclusion. Thanks again to Jon Gold.

WASHINGTON -- The United States created the myth around Iraq insurgency leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and reality followed, terrorism expert Loretta Napoleoni said.
Thanks to Jon Gold for this. Sounds like we're having an impact, send in your emails everyone!!!

"Your article would have been much more beneficial to your readers if it had examined the specific reasons that many ordinary, respectable people have questions about the cause and motives behind the tragedy."

"It seems to me that we really haven't a choice in believing or disbelieving '9/11 conspiracy theories' in general, but rather which conspiracy theory to believe, including the 'official' conspiracy promulgated by the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission. Indeed, there was a conspiracy. I've yet to meet anyone who proposes that all four planes hijacked themselves that morning... I'm sorry to say the official version is presented to us by a most dubious source..."
Thanks to Maddog for this. It starts about a quarter of the way through:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The fact that the U.S. government overlooked numerous warning signs in the run-up to the September 11 attacks is an old story that is being used in a new way in the Zacarias Moussaoui case. It could save his life.
With the admitted al Qaeda conspirator facing a death penalty trial early next year, the judge framed a key question in a recent closed-door hearing: Even if Moussaoui had told the FBI everything that he knew, would that have enabled the government to avert the 2001 terrorist strikes?
