Myths about Jim Fetzer
This is an e-mail sent out by Jim Fetzer to all members of scholars for 9/11 truth:
Some falsehoods that are being marketed as facts:
1. That I kicked Morgan and Judy out of Scholars.
False. They resigned over differences about the
significance of Steve's work, which I defended.
2. That I am dictating the membership of boards.
False. I offered several proposals for discussion.
And, after giving this matter further thought, I
am open to receive nominations from members.
3. That I am trying to control the society.
False. I offered Steve the journal and the forum
as part of what I hoped would be an amicable split
and I want to create a board of directors to whom
responsibility for the society can be assigned.
4. That I have endorsed "space beams" and "no planes".
False. I have only endorsed investigating them. I
think that issues like these, no matter how controversial,
have to be resolved scientifically with logic and evidence.
5. That I kicked Steve out of Scholars.
False. When he resigned, I told him to take 48 hours
and think it over in case he wanted to reconsider.
6. That I want to minimize his research.
False. I have invited him on my radio program,
encouraged him to speak in Washington, and invited
him to chair a panel at the conference in Madison.
7. That I think we should focus on exotic explanations.
False. I believe activists should emphasize disproofs
of the official account, while acknowledging that we
are also trying to figure out how it was done, a far
messier, complicated, and contentious enterprise.
It would be nice if "scholars" could get things right.
Scholars for 9/11 Truth
I would like to draw particular attention to his 4th statement. Why has this movement all of a sudden attacked Fetzer because he simply "endorsed investigating" these alternative theories? Somehow this entire movement seemed to dismiss Fetzer almost overnight. Why did this happen? Please realize that this is a deliberate attempt to split this movement. Please support both Fetzer and Jones and stop allowing yourselves to be manipulated by elements within this "Truth Movement". Many of you truthers are very quick to label Fetzer as a crazy nut case. But come on people. you know jim. he's been there almost since the beginning. you know he's not crazy. you're being manipulated into thinking that Jim's gone off the deep end, when all he is doing is saying that his mind is open to alternative explanations. Propaganda techniques have been used to discredit Fetzer by manipulating and simplifying what he has said. The real question with respect to Fetzer and his openness to investigate these theories, is: how and why was this issue used to split the movement and who was responsible for this?
