The Public Mythology of 9/11 and the Global War on Terror - May 24th, 2009 - Walkerton, Ontario, CANADA
Hello Fellow 9/11 Truth Seekers,
I am a family doctor that has enjoyed working and living in Walkerton for the last 13+ years. I am hoping you will assist me in promoting and perhaps attending an event that will bring three respected Canadian University professors (two active and one retired) to Walkerton to discuss this topic of global importance. They are also very personable, approachable and willing to dialogue and interact with anyone but especially with fellow truth seekers, perhaps even plan future events and actions. Most of you have some awareness of professors Graeme MacQueen and Anthony Hall. Michael Truscello has attempted to humbly paint himself as the "3rd speaker" but as an active academic, just recently acquiring his professor title despite being warned by some fellow academics that his public ventures into 9/11 truth and University level class on the subject could jeopardize that title. He represents a great example of a youthful and brave academic who deserves our support. Obviously events such as these are intended to raise general awareness of the issue (wake some people up) but it is also an opportunity for those in the movement, be it centrally or peripherally, to meet and network. The hall is an historic building that has great acoustics and an intimate feel with orchestra and balcony seating for 300 http://www.vjhall.on.ca/. Unfortunately Walkerton isn't really close to many places but it also isn't too far from many ( I like to say it's in the middle of nowhere and everywhere ~ 2 hours from London, Toronto and Hamilton). As I reflected on in an email to local media, this sort of thing doesn't happen every day in Bruce County and am hopeful that many of you will find it newsworthy.
I am including the rest of the letter I sent to local media:
Urgent Message from Richard Gage, AIA
NYC 9/11 Investigation Ballot Initiative
Fellow Architect/Engineer and other Petition Signers,
It looks like 2009 will be the breakthrough year for establishing a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rise on 9/11. At the San Francisco AIA convention, April 30 to May 2, about 60 architects signed our petition calling for a new investigation, bringing the total number of architects and engineers calling for a new investigation to over 700.
Here is a very brief summary of what the experts say about torture:
- Torture actually reduces our national security
- Prosecuting those who created the torture program will REDUCE attacks against the U.S. and against American troops
- Most of those tortured were innocent
- They were not tortured in order to prevent terrorist attacks, but to create a false justification for the war in Iraq (by creating a false linkage between Iraq and Al Qaeda) (and see this)
- The 9/11 Commission report was primarily based upon confessions from those who were tortured. However, none of the information from those who confessed is credible. For example, one of the main sources for the 9/11 Commission Report was tortured until he agreed to sign a confession that he was not even allowed to read. See also this, this, this and this.
Antonio Amadeo, Kim Morgan Dean, Bill McNulty and Mark Zeisler are featured in the world premiere of Yankee Tavern, a new post-9/11 thriller by the prolific Steven Dietz, opening May 15 after previews from May 13 at Florida Stage.
From the playwright of More Fun Than Bowling, Ten November, The Last of the Boys, Honus and Me and Sherlock Holmes comes this new play, set in a crumbling New York bar, in which a young man grapples with questions "about his father's best friend, his mysterious past, and a stranger who knows much more than he should," according to Florida Stage. "Suddenly, he finds himself caught in a web of conspiracy theories surrounding the 9/11 attacks and outlandish hypotheses become dangerous realities."
On May 8, 2009, members of Truth Action Ottawa interviewed Mr. David Long, who was in downtown Manhattan the morning of September 11, 2001. Mr. Long recounts everything he saw and heard that morning, including multiple streams of molten metal pouring from the buildings before they fell, and the sounds of multiple explosions as the buildings came down.
Here's a preview:

1) Newton’s Third Law as applied to WTC Tower
On April 19, 2009 F. Greening wrote to me and I replied:
FG: "I would say that Chandler's slight of hand is the implied notion that Newton's 3rd Law is universally applicable, even to a collapsing building. The fact is that when a building is collapsing by multiple floor failures the reaction force obviously fails to balance the downward force because the yield strength of the failing columns is being exceeded."
SJ: No. This is a blatant and fundamental error. I have caught many a student on the equivalent of this nonsense, as I taught Newtonian Mechanics for over 21 years. Newton's 3rd law is always applicable, even in the case you mention, Frank. The key is that the "equal and opposite forces" must act on DIFFERENT bodies. Suggest you consult a basic physics or mechanics text if you don't understand that. – Steven Jones
Since 2002, (when the above talk was filmed), Peter Dale Scott has broadened his interpretation of the events of 9/11 significantly, incorporating his views on Deep Politics and the assassination of JFK into his analysis. In his 2006 talk, JFK and 9/11: Insights Gained from Studying Both, he drew several direct parallels between the two events.
If you are in the 9/11 Truth Movement, you may have heard someone ask "if they pulled it off to go to war with Iraq, then why didn't they get Iraqis on the planes?" Now you can tell them, because they didn't need them to be Iraqis. All they had to do was torture people to get the connection that they wanted. It also didn't hurt to have a media willing to parrot whatever the Administration wanted them to (read Fact #'s 12, and 27). - Jon
Detainee whose tortured tales were used as justification for Iraq war ‘committed suicide’ in Libyan prison

The chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell says that the Bush Administration authorized torture of detainees before even rendering a legal opinion on the practice — and that they sought to torture detainees in an effort to produce intelligence tying Iraq to al Qaeda.
