My Experience Attending the April 14-15, 2007 PNACitizen Event “Rebuilding America’s Senses: Exposing False-Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11"

By Eloy Gonzalez II

On Saturday, April 14, 2007, I and my 911 truth activist friend, Leo Krayola, drove to Austin, TX, to attend the Project for a New American Citizen (PNACitizen) sponsored event entitled “Rebuilding America’s Senses: Exposing False-Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11" (April 14-15, 2007).

It was a long but uneventful drive. We intended to get there early but due to some last minute financial difficulties, we got off to a late start. Fortunately, we had several 911 Visibility and Alex Jones radio presentations burned to CD which kept us company along the way.

By the time we got into Austin, it was already late in the afternoon and we had missed the introduction by PNACitizen about their purpose and mission and two of the great speaker presentations of the day.

Webster Griffin Tarpley, author of 9/11: Synthetic Terror had spoken on the historical examples of state-sponsored terrorism. Dr. Bob Bowman, a retired United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel once in charge of the “Star Wars” program, had no doubt provided an invaluable aeronautical perspective on numerous 9/11 anomalies.

Although regrettable that we were unable to experience these great presentations for ourselves, Leo and I were fortunately in time for the two-man lecture by Chris Emery and Holland Vandenuenhoff about the mysterious and underreported events of the Oklahoma City bombing.

This presentation was so compelling that, the events and details of the Oklahoma City Bombing have quite possibly become as important to both Leo and me as those of September 11, 2001. The tragic haunting story of Officer Terrance Yeakey is particularly alarming; Google his name to find out why.

Alex Jones, popular radio talk show host and documentary filmmaker, spoke early in the evening to the audience in attendance. I must admit that I was in awe over getting to directly experience firsthand his larger-than-life persona, which to me resembled Mel Gibson’s portrayal of William Wallace in his directorial masterpiece, Braveheart.

Although Alex Jones spoke with confidence throughout his hour onstage, he at one point implied a slight disappointment at the presence of mostly devoted members of the 9/11 Truth Movement. Of course, I understood his feelings as the entire point of the conference was to include a wide diversity of people, particularly members of the UT student body and faculty, and the Austin citizenry and general scientific community. While many people from these groups attended, the conference could easily have afforded more.

Being of the scientific persuasion, I was particularly drawn to the last presentation by physicist, Dr. Steven E. Jones. I have been following his work with considerable interest for the last year or so. To me, his is one of the greatest voices -- not only of reason but of scientific credulity -- for 9/11 truth.

In fact, Dr. Steven Jones’ presentation on his analysis of World Trade Center dust, his explanation for the sustained orange hue of the molten metal pouring from the south tower before its collapse, and his observation that the composition of World Trade Center molten metal spheres is derived from the chemical materials used to create the incendiary thermate, provides what I view as compelling evidence that – yes, folks – 9/11 was an inside job.

At the conclusion of his presentation, I was able to speak with Dr. Steven Jones briefly about his work. Also, a number of photographs were taken of both me and Leo standing, respectively, next to Dr. Steven Jones and Webster Griffin Tarpley. It was great!

The next day, Sunday, I attended the conference sometime around mid-day. Leo had a prior engagement and was unable to attend at the hour of my departure. He agreed to attend the conference later if the time constraints allowed for it. The crowd was not as large this time as on Saturday but the lectures were just as interesting and exciting, if not more so.

Dan Abrahamson was the first speaker in the line-up, covering The Global Breakdown and Fourth Generation Warfare in the Twilight of US Hegemony. I was regrettably unable to see this presentation.

However, I arrived just in the nick of time to catch Webster Griffin Tarpley speak yet once again – this time covering the many NORAD drills of 9/11. These drills were eerily similar to the very terrorist events actually occurring simultaneously on 9/11 and Webster Tarpley explained all too clearly, with meticulous detail, why this could not at all be a coincidence.

Through this presentation I was also exposed to the age-old illustration of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. As the basic concept to one of my favorite films of all time, the 1999 movie, The Matrix, I was particularly intrigued. It was clear to me at this point that all the best stories have their roots in tales of ancient history. I was amazed.

At the conclusion of his presentation, Webster Tarpley joined the rest of the panel of speakers onstage that comprised the majority of the keynote speakers of the last two days. Alex Jones had to make an early departure due to an engagement with his radio talk show. Likewise, Dr. Bob Bowman had a prior commitment that forced him to leave the day before.

In between the transition, I was able to quickly, albeit nervously, reintroduce myself to Dr. Steven Jones and briefly interview him.

A moment later, on the panel, from left to right, sat Webster Griffin Tarpley, Dr. Steven E. Jones, Dan Abrahamson, Chris Every, and Holland Vandenuenhoff.

There were as many interesting questions put to the panel as there were answers that came from it. And although most of the crowd was filled with individuals friendly to 9/11 truth, some were clearly not as evidenced by the few lightly grumbling dissenters clearly towing the official conspiracy line; i.e., the myth of 9/11.

The question and answer session then ended with an acknowledgement to the great student organization that had put the entire 2-day conference together: PNACitizen (

I was pleasantly surprised to run into to old friends of mine that I met during my 2003-2005 stay in Austin. At the time, we were all consumed with Michael Moore’s groundbreaking documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11”. It was encouraging to see that they had naturally moved on to 9/11 truth without either of us having to influence the other. It was proof-positive to me that we were each of kindred spirits, regardless of geography.

In the end, before Leo and I departed for the long Sunday drive home, I was left with the echo of positive words by Webster Griffin Tarpley who had earlier replied to a question about the intrinsic nature of evil in the world saying that regardless of who or what represents it, “Evil is a void that represents the absence of good. It is not a necessity.”

Note: There are just a few minor mistakes with the draft I turned in some of which I have attempted to clear up at the last minute via an email to Weird Magazine.

1. On the first paragraph in the fifth column, "from right to left" should be "from left to right".

2. In the second paragraph in the fifth column, the following sentence "some were clearly not as evidenced by the few lightly grumbling dissenters clearly towing the official conspiracy line", “clearly towing" should just be "toeing". After a Google search, I learned that the "w" should be an "e" as the classic phase is actually “toeing the line” not “towing the line”. And the "clearly" part is redundant as that word was already used once in the same sentence.

3. The title of the article needs a closing quotation mark to correctly read as follows: PNA Citizen Event “Rebuilding America’s Senses”:

4. If I were to be really picky, I would have described “World Trade Center molten metal spheres” as “World Trade Center iron-rich molten metal micro-spheres” or just "World Trade Center iron-rich micro-spheres".

5. I should have contact PNACitizen to determine exactly what the respective presentations by Dr. Bob Bowman and Dan Abrahamson were all about rather than just guess and/or suggest.

6. I was unaware that Leo K had taken a picture with Alex Jones. Had I known, I would have included a description of it in the first paragraph on the fourth column.

My guess is that this month’s issue has already gone to press and that it’s too late to make these corrections. No matter as I think the article is pretty okay as is. The important point is that new people far and wide throughout the Rio Grande Valley are going to gain exposure to 9/11 truth.
