LATEST:
From Air America Radio's The Thom Hartmann Program today June 19 at about 11:25 AM Pacific time:

Thom Hartmann Program will devote "an entire [3 hour] show" to the raging 9/11 Truth vs. official conspiracy theory controversy, "sometime in the next couple of weeks."

We believe we can count on this as a reliable promise.
We hope someone of the stature of Dr. David Ray Griffin (DEBUNKING THE DEBUNKERS)can make themselves available for this.

As they say in Seattle:IT'S GONNA BE A G R E A T SHOW!
DON'T MISS IT!

(See earlier discussion about this below.)

[PLEADING 9/11 IGNORANCE NO LONGER AN OPTION FOR LIBS]

Lewis Lapham of "Harper's" magazine is reading "Debunking 9/11 Debunking"

Submitted by Reprehensor on Sat, 06/16/2007 - 2:50pm.

On Sunday June 3, Lewis Lapham was featured on a 3-hour program on C-SPAN's "In Depth" program. The program focused on Lapham's intellectual life and times, and took calls from the live C-SPAN viewership. During the course of taking calls, one caller asked about Lapham's views on 9/11 as being something other than the Official Conspiracy Theory. Here is what Lapham had to say;

"As to the question of what happened at 9/11, I am reading at the moment a book by a man named David Griffin, on the debunking of the 9/11 debunking, and he raises a number of sharp questions... which I think deserve further questioning and investigation, but I am not as yet prepared to think that the bringing down of the... trade towers was the work of the Bush administration."

Harper's magazine reflects the current political and social thinking of a segment of America's elite, namely, a segment that reads. It is also a magazine for the reading American public that consider themselves "progressives" generally. Harper's was one of the first publications to print a long critical essay about the 9/11 Commission's Final Report, that still resonates today; Whitewash as public service by Benjamin DeMott.

When a serious thinker, writer, and shaper of the American cultural soul is reading David Ray Griffin, I would have to say that progressives and Leftists who will have no truck with questions about 9/11 need to pause and reflect on this. Knee-jerk time is over. It's time to pick up Griffin's books and become familiar with them, and become familiar with the serious aspects of 9/11 skepticism. Lapham is reading Griffin. After Gore Vidal's endorsement of [Griffin's] "The New Pearl Harbor", an open-minded Liberal really has no excuse not to give 9/11 skeptics like Griffin a fair shake anymore. This means actually reading the books, not just snarking at them.

Big tip of the hat to "alexjonesfan" who posted a condensed version of this news item at The Randi Rhodes Message Board. Take a minute to write to Harper's and ask Lapham to review Griffin's book: letters@harpers.org

OPEN LETTER TO THOM@THOMHARTMANN.COM

This morning Friday June 15, 2007 at about 11:25 (Pacific time) on The Thom Hartmann Program, Thom invited the 911 Truth movement to contact his show to discuss the possibility of devoting an hour or two of a future program to the raging controversy between 9/11 Truth's view of the events of and surrounding September 11, 2001, versus that of the defenders' of the Bush Administration's version of the events. (This was in the third hour of Thom's Air America show and is likely archived on AirAmericaRadio.com)

Thom put his producer David Poole on briefly to explain that about six months ago he had tried to arrange such a discussion, but that he could not get the prospective participants to agree to have listener callers in the discussion; and that neither side would agree to be on WITH the other side (!)

For people who don't know: this invitation should be taken seriously. Dr. David Ray Griffin, Webster Tarpley, and other such have been on the show. Also, Thom's regular substitute, the San Francisco radio host Peter B. Collins, is a solid, outspoken advocate for the truth about 9/11.

It seems obvious that as soon as possible representatives of a consortium of 9/11 Truth organizations (such as http://www.911blogger.com , http://911truth.org, The Loose Change people, etc.)should contact The Thom Hartmann Show and begin discussions. (A first, burning, question that should be answered is: what representatives of the 9/11 Truth movement would have taken it upon themselves to REFUSE TO APPEAR ON THE SAME SHOW WITH THE OPPOSITION, AND REFUSED TO HAVE CALLER PARTICIPATION?!!!!!)

I am posting this open letter on 911blogger.com and including it in Some of The Above Newsletter.

OPEN LETTER to Greg Palast from Steven E. Jones, Ph.D.

Dear Mr. Palast,

On May 10, 2007, in an INN TV interview, you made statements which were blatantly defamatory when you called me, by name, a "complete and utter fraud" and a "fruitcake." I demand either a retraction or substantiation of your accusations -- publicly.

A lawyer friend affirms that your statements, available here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=r2oFTiEpIBQ , constitute "malicious defamation."

You taunted: "Mr. Jones, come at me!"

Here I am.

I am ready to respond to your specific objections to my papers, or issues you wish to raise which support the "official story" of the Bush/Cheney administration, after you have first verified that you have actually read what I have written on the subject of controlled demolition at the World Trade Center:

http://journalof911studies.com/volume/200704/JonesWTC911SciMethod.pdf

http://journalof911studies.com/volume/200609/Why_Indeed_Did_the_WTC_Buil...

I will respond then to your statements which support the Bush/Cheney or "official story" for 9/11 events, and I will assure that the exchange will be made public. I propose publication of our exchange in the letters section of the Journalof911Studies.com, but you may choose another venue which is open to the public. Be sure to include your explanation of the iron-aluminum-rich microspheres which I discovered in the WTC dust if your explanation differs from mine, as well as the rapid straight-down collapse of WTC 7.

Again, my lawyer friend describes your public remarks on INN on May 10, 2007, as "malicious defamation" and I think he is correct. Do you? You called me a "complete and utter fraud" and a "fruitcake." I maintain that I am of sound mind and not a fraud. However, I invite you to present your substantiation of these claims -- or retract your egregious defamations.

Sincerely,

Steven E. Jones, Ph.D.

PS -- If you do not respond by July 25, 2007, I will consider other options. Thank you.

Note that there are over one hundred engineers and architects listed in the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth web site, www.ae911truth.org , along with many at the www.stj911.org site, so you may wish to correct your mis-statement of last month that there are "no engineers" who challenge the official story.

Reach thousands of commuters with 9/11 Truth banners on utility poles.
By Russ Hallberg

Want to quickly reach hundreds of people with 911 truth? You can do it at busy intersections during rush hour. I place 911 Truth banners on wooden and metal poles where people stopped for a traffic light will see them. Locations that are visible to pedestrian traffic work well, too. Do not expect 911 Truth banners to last for extended periods of time anywhere they can be torn off. I did the same thing last year with IMPEACH banners and they were generally left undisturbed. I consider 911 Truth to be a much more effective cause. Apparently, so does our opposition!...

"There are many books, movies and websites which discuss the basic concepts discussed in this website. However, most of those other resources focus solely on personal happiness and achievement. That's fine.

"But our country and world need a lot of help right now to get back on the right track and to create a better world than we’ve ever dreamed possible.

"If we truly create our own reality, which the Bible, Eastern spiritual teachers, scientists and psychologists tell us, then we also create our political, social, ecological, and economic conditions. We create the conditions for war or peace, for stability versus terrorism, for corrupt leaders or good leaders, for global sanity or chaos.

"Many books, movies and websites focus on the actual problems, and do good work in exposing corruption, criminal acts, greed, injustice and fear-mongering. Indeed, most of the people who produce this website spend time fighting against those problems, and this website and the ideas presented here are not intended to take you away from your work in these areas – which is vital.

"However, we also choose – and invite you – to co-create a better world through the use of prayer and divine power."
