The Village Voice Covers the '9/11 Truth Movement'
The Seekers - The birth and life of the '9-11 Truth movement' - villagevoice.com
It's dark in the basement of St. Mark's Church and dark outside on a mid-December Sunday night, but inside they have seen the light. Among the 100 or so people in the room, many wear buttons that read "9/11 Was An Inside Job." Others grip the vital texts in their hands�Crossing the Rubicon, The New Pearl Harbor, or 9/11 Synthetic Terror. Most in the largely (but not exclusively) white and male crowd can quote you the important passages from "Rebuilding America's Defenses" or The 9/11 Commission Report. A few can guide you through the details of concepts like "peak oil" and pyroclastic flow. All of them suspect�and a few simply know�that their government was somehow complicit in the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans four Septembers ago.
This lengthy writeup on The Village Voice covers the gamut of 9/11 skeptics, films, and books. Unfortunately the article glosses over the primary points argued by those devoted to 9/11 truth, and digresses into the all too common undermining comments towards the end:
It's odd. For a group of people who harbor so many doubts about the intentions of their own and other governments, the media, and fellow citizens, much of the Truth movement does not suspect for a moment that our defense spending has been a rip-off, that the FBI is a clumsy bureaucracy, that our spy agencies are deaf and dumb, and that our skyscrapers are not 100 percent safe.
Given the sparse amount of media devoted to the 9/11 Truth Movement - beggars can't be choosy, and any large writeup on the subject is in some way a step towards better public awareness. It is also worth noting that this article was also featured on the front page of rawstory.com today as well.
The village voice ran a few other 9/11 related articles today as well as part of a set, here are some quotes from them:
Jenna Orkin doesn't expect to hear her truth about 9-11 unless someone forces the officials involved to tell it. For her, as for so many people downtown and in Brooklyn, 9-11 meant clouds of ash and smoke engulfing her apartment building, filtering down the halls of her son's Tribeca high school.
"We were being duped," Orkin says, leaning forward, "and I'd like to find out why."
