Exchange between Greg Palast and Steven Jones now a Letter in the Journal of 9/11 Studies; Global 9/11/2007 activities

The exchange between Greg Palast and Steven Jones is now a published Letter in the Journal of 9/11 Studies. I wish to thank all who commented on an earlier version of this letter here on 911blogger (thanks to all for making 911blogger a great resource).

There is an added footnote in the published Letter which may be of interest:
An article in the Guardian, Sept. 5, 2006, claims that I [Steven Jones] asserted that the 9/11/2001 attacks were "an 'inside job', puppeteered by the neoconservatives in the White House to justify the occupation of oil-rich Arab countries, inflate military spending, and expand Israel.” The article also alleges: “says Jones "We challenge this official conspiracy theory and, by God, we're going to get to the bottom of this.” I never spoke of this alleged notion to “expand Israel” at all, nor did I use the phrase ascribed to me, “by God,” which I consider to be profane. The entire quotation ascribed to me is NOT MINE, nor did the author (Christina Asquith) of the article interview me at all. Where her quotation came from, I do not know – but the words are not mine. I wrote to the Guardian strongly objecting to their attributing statements to me that I did not make – but received no reply nor retraction.,,1864524,00.html

Note: I trust we will all be active for the 9/11 anniversary this year... I will be at Kevin Ryan's conference in Indiana.

Totally agree... I used to "rate" Palast too...

c'est la vie - live 'n' learn

My biggest thanks to Prof Jones and all the other true patriots, truth seekers and freedom lovers working to find the truth of 9/11

My very best wishes to you all


As I have mentioned before religious BS such as this:

""My unfortunate characterization of you as a "fruitcake" was based on your assertion that
Jesus met with Mayans after His resurrection - which, Peter explained to me, was not a
scientific finding but a deeply held religious belief rooted in your Mormon faith… Greg Palast""

Is what defenders of the OCT are always going to resort to because they don't have an intelligent answer to anything regarding 9/11 truth.
Alex Jones suffers from this same affliction, even though Alex and Steven Jones make perfectly valid and sound Scientific points concerning 9/11 they both have basically compartmentalized the religious insanity within. Well those totally insane religious viewpoints are all people like Palast will discuss for obvious reasons.
All they have to do is attack the messenger and the message is tainted in the minds of those that don't want to believe the factual reality of 9/11 truth anyway.
This tactic works every time so naturally they are going to use it.

I have had this exact same point pushed at me in Atheist forums where I was trying to get people to understand the facts about 9/11 and Prof Jones work.
I usually try to point out that many very intelligent Scientist in the past were religiously insane or held totally ridiculous views about certain things but it didn't change the facts of their work but none the less such a revelation always throws cold water on the fire and makes it damn near impossible to get someone sceptical to take a persons work seriously when they have shown you the person you quote believes something totally insane.

BTW here is a link to the letter which is oddly missing in a blog whose headline only talks about said letter.


Since when is it ok to attack a scientist because of his theology?

Only ignorent biguts would call anybody "religeuosly insane".


I think its fine and dandy to attack anybody that believes in fairy tales, but that has nothing to do with good scientific data that can be checked, re-checked, tested, re-tested & peer reviewed by 1000s of others in that persons field of research.

His religious views are totally insane without a shred of data to back it up.

Same could be said for Newton for instance.

Newton's Science was outstanding, but he was literally insane and suffered several personality disorders. So would I throw out Newtons Law because of it? Ummm NO!

Christal clear

One option you proposed Palast: "A lawsuit against you for slandering me publicly. All proceeds (in excess of court and lawyer costs) would go to Iraqi war refugees = victims of the 9/11 treachery, if I win."

Of course, if you believe in the Truth you believe in Justice, even for the meek. Let the culprit pay for his crimes.

Palast tried to entrap you into the paragraph eight issue (which makes for interesting reading but certainly off subject as a reply to one injured by slander). You did not fall into that Zionist trap. You stayed fast to what you know to be true. Truth is a good shepherd.:

Nice christal clear thinking. Now you can require INN TV of equal time.

6. Steve's reply to Greg, 11 August:
Thank you, apology accepted.
The subject line of your email carries some hope for future "reasoned discourse," which
is what I seek. ("An apology and hope for reasoned discourse ")
The hard evidence supporting the use of planted cutter-charges in the destruction of WTC
7 and the Twin Towers is very strong and I hope you will retain at least an open mind
about these matters. The corporatocracy described by John Perkins has tentacles that are
being exposed as we research what really happened on 9/11. I am certainly not accusing
you of complicity in any way. There are questions I would like to see posed to Dick
Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and a few others...
Steven E. Jones

7. “Final” email sent 13 August to Greg Palast:
Dear Greg,
I would urge you to consider my published, peer-reviewed papers which I have attached
for you, regarding my research on what really happened on 9/11/2001 (particularly, the
evidence for intentional demolition of the Towers and WTC 7). I believe these will be
mostly understandable, and I further invite you to send them to "experts" as you wish for
comment on the arguments I raise.
Indeed, I invite such criticisms of CONTENT as most seem to prefer to dismiss me as a
"fruitcake" without even reading my papers -- can you imagine that?
Can you imagine a scholar or serious investigator taking such an ad hominem approach --
especially considering what is at stake if society as a whole continues to swallow the
"official" 9/11 myth?
Steven Jones

Actually, the whole transaction is of historical importance.
