I signed up

Fortunately I saw this page and got tuned in for the last part of it. KPFA is having a pledge drive, and, since I hadn't sent them any money for a while (I live nearby and listen to KPFA constantly), I got in for the tee shirt, which sounded pretty neat. Much as I like DRG, I figure I know or will know most of what he says without getting the book.

Thanks for posting this. It was great to hear this on KPFA, especially following Amy Goodman's interview with Zelikov. Usually "Guns and Butter" is the only KPFA show that will deal with 911 truth. Especially interesting, I thought, was Bernstein's saying he's never received so much pressure to not talk about something since Iran/Contra. He didn't go into detail, so I wondered if he meant anything specific or just all the general "left gatekeeper" crap from his friends and associates. Either way, it sounds as if it's difficult for him to do what he's doing, and I'm really glad he had DRG on, as well as carrying Parenti's talk yesterday, which, although LIHOP, was impassioned and well informed, as far as it went.

I missed most of DRG, but I'll download it and catch it later.

I too found this interesting

I would like to know what type of pressure Dennis is experiencing????

Seems left or right the hammer is falling on any who would DARE ask a simple question regarding the official story.

They protesteth too much methinks!

Dennis let us know what type of pressure you are experiencing it should be documented for reference.

I am so curious about this pressure from the left to suppress the simple truth of 911...seems oxymoronic!!!

Like Chomsky...where is this coming from???

Dennis needs to have a long talk with Amy Goodman!


I spoke to Dennis about this a few days ago. It appears that he was referring to stuff happening in the station (KPFA) He's determined nonetheless, to keep on airing 911 truth shows.

The Book

9/11 CONTRADICTIONS: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press

In 9/11 Contradictions, David Ray Griffin shows that the official story about 9/11 is riddled with internal contradictions. Two contradictory statements cannot both be true. These contradictions show, therefore, that individuals and agencies articulating the official story of 9/11 have made many false statements. Congress and the press clearly should ask which of the contradictory statements are false and why they were made.

This book is purely factual, simply laying out the fact that these internal contradictions exist. As such, the book contains no theory. Politicians and journalists who deal with the issues raised herein, therefore, will not be giving credence to some "conspiracy theory" about 9/11. They will simply be carrying out their duty to ask why the official story about 9/11, arguably the most fateful event of our time, is riddled with so many contradictions.

Copies to Congress members?

Could the movement somehow organize the sending of a copy of the book to all / most members of the Congress and to people like Keith Olbermann?

Great Idea

Vesa. great idea

Over At


It's great that he keeps putting out mostly excellent books about 9/11. We need more of this. It all adds up.
Arabesque: 911 Truth

Yeah let's serve it on the entire Congress and Media

Firm, professional truth-squad style delivery and documentation of this book to every member of Congress and the press would set the stage for something good to happen. Let's do it by the beginning of summer at the very latest.

Calling out the internal contradictions of the hoax cover story written for us by the Zelikow Commission paid for by we the people's misused and abused money is the most powerful way to open up the space for the Congress and media to interrogate the state-sponsored conspiracy "theory." In addition to there being a clear breach of fiduciary responsibility for the Commission to submit "Zelikowtian" parallel universe scenarios as a "report" to the people on mass murder and terrorism, we must make the argument that upholding a cover-up of any type of this serious an event is treasonous on its face.

It looks like the mainstream Left is beginning to move a little on this which is a good sign. But we gotta keep pushin potently and strategically. This is shaping up to a very interesting year. And remember the Chinese Curse/Blessing.

“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehoods school. And the one man that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.” –Plato

Flashpoints Rocks
