National Academy of Sciences Member Calls for New 9/11 Investigation

By Alan Miller

Official Explanation a “Fraud”

World renowned scientist, Lynn Margulis, Ph.D., has severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation, “I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken.”

One of America’s most prominent scientists, Dr. Margulis is Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts - Amherst. She was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1983 and served as Chairman of the Academy’s Space Science Board Committee on Planetary Biology and Chemical Evolution. In 1999, President Bill Clinton presented Dr. Margulis with the National Medal of Science, America's highest honor for scientific achievement, "for her outstanding contributions to understanding of the development, structure, and evolution of living things, for inspiring new research in the biological, climatological, geological and planetary sciences, and for her extraordinary abilities as a teacher and communicator of science to the public."

In her statement on, Dr. Margulis referred to 9/11 as “this new false-flag operation, which has been used to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as unprecedented assaults on research, education, and civil liberties”. She compared 9/11 to several self-inflicted attacks that had been used in the past to arouse people’s fear and hatred and justify war, including the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, the Reichstag Fire, and Operation Himmler, which Germany used to justify the invasion of Poland, the trigger for World War II.

In her statement, Dr. Margulis cites “the research and clear writing by David Ray Griffin in his fabulous books about 9/11” as a useful source of information and analysis of problems with the official account of 9/11. She specifically lauded The New Pearl Harbor and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, “which provides overwhelming evidence that the official story is contradictory, incomplete, and unbelievable.”

Internationally acclaimed for her ground-breaking scientific work, Dr. Margulis is an elected member of The World Academy of Art and Science, an organization of 500 of the world’s leading thinkers, chosen for eminence in art, the natural and social sciences, and the humanities. And in 2006, she was selected as one of “The 20th Century's 100 Most Important Inspirational Leaders” by the editors of Resurgence magazine.

why isn't this on the front page?? This is HUGE!!

Agree. The Eleventh Day of


Why is this not on the front page of every paper???

Because there is no "liberal meadia"
There is no fair and balanced media
there is no media dedicated to telling the truth.

There is only the "corporate media", and their only goal is self preservation.
And serving their corporate fascist masters, of course.

And that is what we are fighting against.


Front page material. At the least she should be added to the scholars who question the official story.

Different links, and minus the photo, but essentially the same information, I gather:


She was also Carl Sagan's first wife, they had a son together. This is the kind of story that the media hates. It's absolutely radioactive. Following the link to op-ed news, there's a disinfo troll already on it.

Yes, it's huge...

... but where's the disinfo troll? As of 4:11pm EST Sat 9/8, there are only two comments on this op-ed news story, both pro-truth.
