Scott has used this talk, (presented on November 18, 2006 at the COPA conference in Dallas), as a springboard for much further research and analysis. A modified text form of this talk is available at Michel Chossudovsky's Global Research website. Most recently, Scott expanded on the research initiated in this talk at the Making Sense of the 60s conference in Pittsburgh, and a transcript will be published soon. For those who haven't seen this talk, it will be useful to view it before taking on Scott's Pittsburgh remarks. Now reissued on YouTube.
Most recently is Scott's talk at McGill University in Montreal, which touches on some of this research;
Members of Ottawa 9/11 Truth took to the streets in the Market in front of A-Channel to raise awareness regarding the events of 9/11.

NYU Employee Spits on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist for Harassing Dan Rather
The panel discussion “The First Amendment, Freedom of the Press, and the Future of Journalism” got a little more interesting when an NYU facilities employee lashed out at conspiracy theorists questioning Dan Rather and Jill Abramson as they were leaving the event.
As reported on NYC the Blog and Mazza FHS the night began with the question “whether [Dan] Rather believes World Trade Center was taken down by bombs inside.” The conspiracy theorists followed Rather and Abramson out of the building after the panel discussion to continue questioning.
According to a NYU grad student, Aaron Howell, who was twittering at the event, “A NYU building facility guy got mad at the conspiracy guys for harassing the NY Times person so he spit in the dudes face/slapped his camera. Facility guy violated the poor conspiracy theorists I think NYU might be in trouble for that one.”
9/11 Commission, Londonistan, and Day of 9/11 - Additions to the 9/11 Timeline as of October 19, 2008
Several of this week's new entries focus on the 9/11 Commission, in particular its Executive Director Philip Zelikow, who offered public support for the invasion of Iraq in 2002, but did not want the commission to investigate false claims of links between 9/11 and Iraq. After the commission's investigation started, one staffer was sent to review CIA documents, and another, Warren Bass, was sent to review NSC material. Bass came to favor the account of events in the Bush Administration in the summer of 2001 given by counterterrorism "tsar" Richard Clarke over that given by National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. However, Zelikow distrusted Clarke and tried to protect his friend Rice; it was these ties to Rice which caused both Bass and Commissioner Bob Kerrey to threaten to quit the commission, although neither of them made good on their threat.
(The following article by James Gourley reports the great news that another piece has been published in a mainstream technical Journal. This follows the publication in April, 2008 in the Bentham 'Open Civil Engineering Journal' and in August, 2008 in 'The Environmentalist'. It also recounts the extra hurdles that critics of the official WTC collapse theories have to jump along the way. -rep.)
The Journal of Engineering Mechanics has recently published a paper I authored. It can be found here, beginning on page 915: (PDF 224kb)
Normally, such a publication would be announced here at 911Blogger to let everyone know we are still making progress publishing criticisms of the official fairy tale in mainstream technical journals, in the hopes of reaching more members of the scientific and engineering community.
While I am excited this paper will be reaching new audiences, and I would like to share that fact with you, I am writing today for a different purpose.
Not much is ever written about what we go through to get these papers published. The publication of this paper is a case study in the struggles we face. I’d like to relate to you exactly what I had to go through to get this paper published, and what influences the substance of it have already had. I hesitate to reveal some of the information below, but as will become clear, the Journal of Engineering Mechanics personnel have demonstrated a complete lack of scientific ethics, and I feel like I have no choice but to publish exactly what occurred in the lead up to my paper’s publication.

French JM Bigard explains his last month of hell due to his doubts on the official 911 version. English sub-titles please !
Since the last month Jean Marie Bigard is under a horrible media attack because he expressed some doubts on the official version ot the 11th of September 2001 attacks. His reply last Friday night is very powerful. Can anyone put up English sub titles to this so that the non-French speaking Americains can appreciate the difficulties to get the truth out !
Please counter the hate mail sent to Jean-Marie with emails of kindness and thanking him for helping ( perhaps involantarily) the truth mouvement.
PS he is a personnal friend of the French president so what has Nicolas Sarkozy to say on this ?!
Again we are attacking him !
I have obtained a new document via FOIA request. It is an FAA memo comprising a transcript of calls between various FAA facilities and other institutions on the day of 9/11, and was referenced in the 9/11 Commission Report, in endnote 128 to Chapter 1 (on page 459). It is not spectacularly exciting, but touches on awareness of all four hijacks, in particular the last three. You can find it here.
