Leading Theologian Speaks Out On 9/11 in NYC
David Ray Griffin is a busy guy!!! This time in New York:
Even after four years, controversy over the events of 9/11 continues to surface in the news. We recently witnessed the honest questioning of the official account by a FDNY Muslim chaplain which gave rise to a storm of intolerance and deflection of any actual and legitimate inquiry into the official account of the attacks. Even more recent was the refusal by the CIA Director, Porter Goss, to investigate people within the agency who played key roles and should have acted on important information but didnâ€™t.
In the wake of these developments, on Oct. 15th and 16th, New Yorkers filled two venues to hear a prominent theologian and author of two books on 9/11. David Ray Griffin, gave a presentation titled â€œThe Destruction of the Trade Towers: A Christian Theologian Speaks Out.â€ Dr. Griffin has continued to blaze a trail of courage, leading where media and elected officials except for a mere handful have feared to tread. His presentation went straight to the core of one of the most powerful indictments of the official story, the collapse of the towers including WTC 7.
He included excerpts from the firemenâ€™s tapes which were recently released as a result of a prolonged court battle led by victimâ€™s families represented by attorney Norman Siegel and reported in the NY Times. He also included statements by many witnesses. These sources gave ample testimony giving evidence to explosions going off in the buildings. A 12 minute film was shown for the audiences, who saw for themselves the undeniable details which were presented.
Itâ€™s important to note that Dr. Griffin is one of many prominent intellectuals--including the likes of Howard Zinn, Peter Dale Scott, Richard Falk, Paul Craig Roberts and Peter Phillips--who have seen through the major discrepancies of the official explanation of 9/11 and have risen to challenge it. In other words, skepticism of what weâ€™ve been told goes far beyond your typical anti-war activists.
Dr. Griffin received standing ovations following both events, which were filled to capacity.
