Creating Public Myth: The 9/11 Commission Report, Portsmouth, NH

What: Creating Public Myth: The 9/11 Commission Report

When: Tuesday, July 10, 7:00 PM

Where: the new Portsmouth Public Library
in the Levenson Room
175 Parrott Ave., Portsmouth, NH

Dr. Thomas Hansen, a retired mathematics education researcher, author,
and teacher, now living in Charlottesville, Virginia, will speak in
Portsmouth on Tuesday, July 10, at 7 pm, about some of the unanswered questions of the events of 9/11.

The title of his talk is "Creating Public Myth: The 9/11 Commission Report."
Dr. Hansen has researched the events of 9/11 and has had a conversation with
Philip Zelikow, the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission. The talk, which
is free and open to the public, will take place in the Levensen Room of the
Portsmouth Public Library, 175 Parrott Ave. in Portsmouth.

During Dr. Hansen's conversation with Dr. Philip Zelikow, Dr. Zelikow told
him that he and his staff made a conscious decision not to dignify "outrageous
conspiracy theories" about 9/11 by investigating them or reporting on them. In
published academic articles, Philip Zelikow describes his own area of academic
expertise as "creating public myth."

According to Dr. Hansen, the 9/11 Commission Report has become a "public
myth" itself, which has left out or distorted important facts that do not fit the
official story of what happened on 9/11.

Along with the presentation and discussion about his research into 9/11, Dr.
Hansen will be singing several original songs about 9/11. According to Dr.
Hansen, "It is time to get beyond simply labeling people as 'conspiracy
theorists,' and instead to tell the truth about 9/11."

Dr. Hansen cites an October 2006 CBS/New York Times poll showing that fewer
than 20% of Americans believe they have been given the full truth about 9/11.
They believe that the US government is either hiding something or mostly lying
about what they knew prior to 9/11/2001 about possible terrorist attacks
against the United States.

This presentation is being sponsored by the Seacoast 9-11 Questions Group,
which is inviting the public to come to explore together why so many Americans
are questioning the official story of what happened on 9/11.
