Dear Mr. Weitzman,

It is with deep concern that we are requesting both a clarification and a retraction regarding several remarks you made at the Homeland Security sub-committee hearing on Terrorism Risk Assessment held on 6 November 2007.

In reference to the content of your PowerPoint presentation, you stated, “The presentation begins with a look at how 9/11 is viewed in some eyes online, including those who applauded it as well as some conspiracies sites. The presence of the conspiracy site is significant, since so much of what passes as fact online is actually based on some form of conspiracy.” You later went on to say, “These people are constructing their own version of reality, full of conspiracy theories, full of doctored videos, that will recruit or inflame the emotions.”

Given that the explicit mission of the Simon Wiesenthal Center is to confront “hate and terrorism” by “promoting human rights and dignity…. and teaching the lessons of the Holocaust for future generations,” we find your flagrant use of the characterization ”these people” to not only be incongruent with your stated mission, but also a chilling reminder of the rhetoric used to demonize Jews, Catholics, homosexuals, gypsies, et. al. during the reign of the Third Reich in the early and mid-twentieth century. By “these people” are you referring to Mindy Kleinberg, Kristen Breitweiser, Patty Casazza and Lorie Van Auken, all widows after the 9/11 attacks who for 441 days battled against government apathy in bringing about a 9/11 investigation, whose stories and continued demands for answers are frequently referenced and who openly endorse many 9/11 websites? By “these people” are you likewise referring to Rabbi Michael Lerner, the prominent progressive Jewish activist who stated, “I salute the people … who are doing an amazing job of exposing what may prove to be one of the most perverse conspiracies in the history of democratic governments,” or are you referring to highly decorated USAF Lt. Col. Robert Bowman PhD, Director of Advanced Space Systems under presidents Jimmie Carter and Gerald Ford, who defines the actions of many in the current administration regarding government misconduct on 9/11 as being nothing short of treasonous, and who similarly endorses the research and activities of many 9/11 websites? Had we paid attention to the plight of “these people” in the 1930s, six million innocents might have been spared their horrific fate and the Holocaust might have been reduced to a perverse aberration.

Equally disturbing in your PowerPoint presentation is the juxtaposition of the website Architects and Engineers for 9/11 with Taliban recruitment sites detailing how to make bombs, take captives and blow up buildings. How and why you equate American architectural and engineering professionals examining the nature of the destruction of three American architectural icons with radical fringe elements of Islamic extremism is not only unfathomable, but can justifiably be construed as being motivated by malicious intent. Within the context of the liberties protected in our constitutional republic, the United States of America is the freedom of intellectual pursuit and the right to challenge our government, its policies, its actions and non-actions.

Again, public clarification by you and the Simon Wiesenthal Center regarding these misconstrued associations is in order. Concerned and patriotic citizens across the country are anxiously waiting for your response.

All of us are waiting.


Very well stated.

that was a great letter. I

that was a great letter. I sent him an email asking for an on camera interview. no word yet. I don't expect one.

Wiesenthal Center contact info

The Weisenthal Center can also be reached electronically at

They apparently have a publication out titled Digital Terrorism and Hate, which could be worth scrutiny from this perspective.


Excellent letter. I shall myspace it.


Mr. Weitzman needs to rectify his facts.
And show the world how apologetic he can be, just like the Dog did.

Haupt to Weisenthal: Add to terrorist list

Posted: Mon Nov 26, 2007 7:07 pm

"I just watched Nico Haupt's latest video - after he stalks Richard Gage again (this time at his office), he calls up the Weisenthal Center and recommends that they add to their terrorist list.

They ask him to send them the relevant information."

If you haven't listened to Clout on Air America Radio, you might not know that the host Richard Greene is completely awake and is "with the program".

That was GREAT to hear.

Is CLOUT heard on all Air America stations?

The Air America station in Dallas no longer exist. It was bought out by a Catholic Station.

Rock on Coherence

Good letter.
It's a lot more focused than the "We are Change"/ "Alex Jones" group's - Discovery channel?'s, Bilderberg ?'s,Ron Paul support, Bohemian Grove ?'s, V for Vendetta DVD's etc. and their other assorted irrelevant material that fill up 9/11 Truth sites.
Those Change people never fail to surprise !

From what I've observed...

Israel firster inscribed institutions aren't too good at letters of apology.
But I do agree with the letter that one is in order.

Excellent letter!

Seeing as how Richard Gage is a friend of mine, a regular church-going Christian, a recovering Republican and an all around sweet guy, I may have to send them a letter asking for an explanation and an apology, too.

If you don't mind I will probably lift some of your very well written prose to punch up my letter.

Thanks again and everyone get your tri-corner hats ready!

(We'll be joining you in SF again this year)

I hope that you and yours are well.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Weitzman replies with a canned script

Dear Boston 9/11 for Truth,

Over the past few days I have received a number of emails regarding my testimony to the House Committee on Homeland Security. Much of those emails appear to have been based on misapprehensions of my testimony. My testimony was about “the Internet as a tool for violent radicalization”, and not about 9/11. My reference to 9/11 consisted of 1 sentence out of 6 pages of testimony, and in that sentence (with 2 out of 38 accompanying PowerPoint slides) I referenced “how 9/11 is viewed in some eyes, including those who applauded it as well as some conspiracy sites.” I then continue by illustrating the types of conspiracy theories often found online, such as those based upon of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the infamous antisemitic text, or that generally blame the US government in a pernicious manner (i.e. for intentionally spreading the AIDS virus), or that have the “entire Western World engaged in a conspiracy against Islam” Nowhere in there is there any mention of 9/11! In this regard our only concern with 9/11 is when the inquiries slide into incubators for hate (i.e. “This fake Hamas soldier wearing a "Star of David" is as much a Zionist as the 9-11 terrorists Chertoff covers for. Chertoff is the son of a terrorist himself. Don't let him off the hook!”).

Finally, in my recommendations, I never urged any type of censorship. In fact, I specifically state that (#5) that any steps taken in regard to the Internet must be done legally, and over the course of a decade in dealing with this issue I have consistently stressed that the First Amendment must be maintained in the virtual as well as the real world. I have even argued that in conferences in Europe when attempts were being made to impose international controls on the Internet, saying, as I did last year in Berlin that we should “avoid getting bogged down in a useless debate on the First Amendment” because we (in the US) are not going to erase it, nor should we.

Please feel free to share this with any interested parties.

Lame BS

Does SWC consider Architects and Engineers a conspiracy site ?
Obviously they do - or why would they present it ?
And as evidenced in their presentation - SWC equates the site with terrorists.
There's still a definite law suit there.

We want to know why did Weitman put asTerrorists?

interview him on this ? An interview is better than a letter of excuse !



How nice that this was the Simon Wiesentahl Center

as my understanding of myself is a similar one like Simon Wiesenthal- I will chase all perpetrators, all defamers, all persons who undermine every effort to dismantle the truth with the various known methods my life long.

And, BTW, sent them a mail, too.

WeAreChange please interview Mark Weitzman correctly for a reply

Excellent letter. How about a same high quality respectful interview with Mark so we can see what he looks like and have his oral reply.
