Washington D.C. Screening of "9/11: Press For Truth" - 9/11/06

I attended the 7:00pm screening of "9/11: Press for Truth" at Landmark's E Street Cinema in DC. Although there were approximately 40 others in the audience, I was disappointed that more young people didn't turn out to support the movement. My initial reaction to "Press for Truth" was that of disappointment: there were too many core components left out of the film that implicate the government through MIHOP. Among the gaps: wargames, controlled demolition of the towers, the Mineta testimony, and insider trading. However, as my girlfriend and I discussed the scenes on our way home, I realized that "Press for Truth" is a perfect film for fence-sitters and those unfamiliar with 9/11 Truth.

The genius of "Press for Truth", what set it apart from other 9/11 Truth documentaries, is the raw emotion the film generates and demands from its audience. Unlike Loose Change, we see the human response to 9/11 in the form of the 'Jersey Girls'. We emphasize with the betrayal they received from the 9/11 Commission they helped create. Most importantly, they show that a group of ordinary, dedicated civilians can make a difference. Additionally, the incorporation of Paul Thompson's "9/11 Timeline" highlighted the money trail from the Pakistani ISI to the hijackers and proved to be particularly damning.

Kyle Hence, the executive producer and founder of 9/11 CitizensWatch, introduced the movie and took questions with Paul Thompson at its conclusion. The audience utilized the full thirty minutes and asked some good questions with Thompson fielding the majority of them.

One man, upon being called for a question, stood up and identified himself as Dave VonKleist, the producer of "9/11: In Plane Sight." After a brief call for unity for all members of the Truth movement, VonKleist described how he had been in New York earlier that day meeting with Dylan, Alex Jones, and others at Ground Zero. He mentioned a list of independent people working with him who could prove that the planes which hit the towers were not passenger jets. VonKleist also said that he had obtained several videos released on a dvd of the Pentagon attack and that they would hopefully be available by Thanksgiving. At first I thought of the FOIA request at Flight77.info, but there does not appear to be any updates at this time.

"9/11: Press for Truth" is an important film that serves as a preliminary examination into the complexities surrounding that day. Although it doesn't implicitly incriminate figures within the Whitehouse, the movie allows newcomers the opportunity to see that there are valid questions that remain unanswered to this day.

IMO, 5 years after 9/11, truth videos s/b more powerful!

Among the gaps: wargames, controlled demolition of the towers, the Mineta testimony, and insider trading.

5 years after the fact, we need direct, powerful 9/11 inside job movies. Not ones with subtle hints & riddles. (No more beating-around-the-Bush, so to speak.)

depends on your audience and

depends on your audience and broadcaster. some TV stations wont broadcast "unproven material. for them and newbies press for truth is great. the pak link is also v imp imo. follow the money!!
