New David Ray Griffin Article on the 9/11 Commission Report

Omissions & Distortions in The 9/11 Commission Report: A Significant Pattern
This article is a summation of the testimony given by Griffin at the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference 2005 (September 21-24, Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC) for the session, “The 9/11 Omission: What the Commission Got Wrong,” September 23, 2005, sponsored by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA)

There have been two main theories about 9/11, each of which is a conspiracy theory. The official conspiracy theory says that the attacks were planned and carried out entirely by al-Qaeda. The alternative theory says that the attacks could not have succeeded without the involvement of forces within our own government.

In examining The 9/11 Commission Report, I have focused on how it dealt with evidence supportive of the alternative theory. I have found that it did so by distorting or simply ignoring this evidence. This is no surprise, because the man running the Commission, Philip Zelikow, was essentially a member of the Bush-Cheney administration. But it is a fact that needs to be brought to light.

Because there are so many omissions and distortions---in my book I identified at least 115---I can point to a significant percentage of them only by moving through my representative list quite quickly.

It also did not mention that

It also did not mention that firefighters were removed from building 7 several hours in advance because someone spread word that it was going to collapse, even though there were, according to all available photographs, fires on only a few of this building’s 47 floors. The Commission again could have included some interesting quotations from the 9/11 oral histories. For example, Decosta Wright, a medical technician, said: “I think the fourth floor was on fire. . . . [W]e were like, are you guys going to put that fire out?” Chief Thomas McCarthy said: “[T]hey were waiting for 7 World Trade to come down. . . . They had . . . fire on three separate floors . . . , just burning merrily. It was pretty amazing, you know, it's the afternoon in lower Manhattan, a major high-rise is burning, and they said ‘we know.’” But the Commission says nothing about this decision not to fight the fires, based on advance knowledge that the building was going to collapse.

The Commission also did not mention that Larry Silverstein, the building’s owner, said on a PBS show that he and the “fire department commander” decided it would be best to “pull” the building, after which “we watched the building collapse.”

The Commission avoided pointing out any of these things by simply not finding any room in its 571-page book to mention the fact that building 7 collapsed---even though it was supposedly the first large steel-frame building in history to collapse from fire alone.

Thanks to for

Thanks to for posting this very well written article about the scientific evidence.

Speaking of conspiracy

Speaking of conspiracy theories and educating the public it might be worthwhile for people to see the new Jody Foster movie Flight Plan.

The movie has a pretty good terrorist thriller plot and who is behind all the evil.

What is more interesting is that the plot focus winds up on the usual suspects (Arabs) but turns out to be an inside job (sorry for the give-away).

A lot of people are going to see this flick and just maybe the outcome showing a terrorist inside job may just make its way into the public subconscious and then into the conscious where more Americans will accept that 911 was an inside job.

I didn't know that about

I didn't know that about Flight Plan....

Truth Defeats Turkey, State Dept. Turkish & Jewish Lobbying Groups

"ATC Chairman Brent Scowcroft sent a letter to Speaker Dennis Hastert on Sept. 9, warning him of dire consequences for American firms doing business with Turkey, should the resolutions be even discussed in the House. In response, the Armenian National Committee issued a press release accusing Scowcroft, a former National Security Advisor to Pres. George H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford, of "compromising his integrity in pursuit of personal business interests.""

Speaking of

Speaking of "Conspiracies"... I saw a story today that I couldn't resist posting... I did it for a reason...

"Conspiracy Charges" Could Bring Indictments To Tom Delay

For ALL of those people who laugh at you, and call you "Conspriacy Theorist"...

Tell them the word was made for a REASON. Tell them the word actually MEANS something. Show them this article, and PUT THEM IN THEIR PLACE.

Tell them that you read about Conspiracies ALL THE TIME. If you have an idea of how that Conspiracy took place, you have what's called a "Conspriacy Theory".

If NOT for "Conspiracy Theories", police would NEVER be able to apprehend a criminal.
