‘Press for Truth’ to screen April 19

Special to the Herald - The Democratic Party of Chippewa County will host a free screening of the hard-hitting film “9/11 Press for Truth,” at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 19 at the Fill Inn Station, 104 W. Columbia St., in Chippewa Falls.

Following the attacks of September 11th, a small group of grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the event—including, to their amazement, President Bush.

“We felt the country was at risk from terrorists and from incompetence…and maybe worse,” said September 11th Widow Lorie Van Auken.

In “9/11 Press For Truth,” six of them, including three of the famous “Jersey Girls,” tell for the first time the powerful story of how they took on the greatest powers in Washington — and won — compelling an investigation.

Later, the 9/11 Commission failed in answering most of their questions.

Adapting Paul Thompson’s definitive Complete 9/11 Timeline (published by HarperCollins as “The Terror Timeline”), the filmmakers collaborate with documentary veterans Globalvision (“WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception,” “Beyond JFK”) to stitch together rare overlooked news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin.

As a result, a very different picture of 9/11 emerges, one that raises new and more pressing questions.

What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Osama Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape U.S. forces in Afghanistan? And what has been the reason for the deliberate obscuring of evidence for state sponsorship?

Perhaps the most important one of all: Why, five years later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?

You can't easily debunk PFT

Now that a major release of LC is (maybe?) on the horizon, I have begun wondering if PFT would be the better one to start with -- not that there is any hope for that of course.

Did you see the review of Loose Change in the LA Times? The reviewer thought he was debunking it, and any uninformed reader would also think that he did debunk it successfully.

But PFT is really not debunkable, don't you think? You can't even pretend to debunk it, since all it is saying is there sure is some major avoidance going on, on this issue.

The avoidance is heavily documented. As we all know. But the public can see it very clearly in PFT. The emotional angle also helps incredibly. You can't attack the 911 families.

You are correct.
