Hungry for 9/11 Truth: Hunger-Strike by 9/11 Truth Activist to Put the Spotlight on Senator John McCain
In an effort to focus national attention on the 9/11 truth issue by going directly to a power center of the 2008 Presidential Campaign, members of Phoenix 9/11 Truth will support Blair Gadsby, a professor of Religious Studies and signatory to the PatriotsQuestion911 website, in a hunger-strike slated to begin Memorial Day, 2008 at the Phoenix office of Senator John McCain. McCain has supported the official account of 9/11 by writing the foreword to the 2006 Popular Mechanics book [Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts]. Gadsby, an Arizonan who is represented by Senator McCain, stated for the record, "I believe Mr. McCain is a man of deep integrity. He has stood up to corporate influence in campaigns and to the very powerful Military Industrial Complex in the past, and he has a record of being a maverick. That's why I've chosen to offer him this opportunity to face the issues head-on publicly. He may be one of the very, very few who have the integrity and stature to keep the military loyal and find the broad-based political support to bring about a change in our great country. But today, he is in a perilous position. By writing the Foreword to the official cover-up story, he has sided with the corrupt and war-mongering elements in our society and government. But if he can be made to see that he has been lied to, like the rest of the American people, he may be able to pull us back from the brink of an America perpetually at war. In the end, that's what this is all about - a wartime economy that is out of control We need someone to rein it in, and I'm pinning my hopes that Senator McCain will do the right thing, and not be so desperate to become President that he will sell himself out. I only hope it's not too late."
Gadsby goes on to say that the reason he is willing to do a hunger-strike is because, "As an Arizonan, having my Senator write the Foreword to an obviously false story gives me a golden opportunity to draw attention to 9/11 truth issues. I believe I am handing the Senator an opening to look at the evidence and change his position. Mr. McCain could have the American people on his side in a heartbeat if and when they are given a chance to learn the truth. Once all of the American people come to learn details about 9/11, they are going to be mad as hell. The country has been far too patient with the many misdeeds of the Bush Administration. The Afghanistan war, and to no small degree, the Iraq war, were a direct result of 9/11. What the 9/11 Truth Movement and many others have established beyond a shadow of a doubt is that 9/11 was a classic case of "false-flag terrorism" used to mobilize the country for war. There's much more at stake here than just 9/11 truth. I believe if Mr. McCain hears our message and acts with the integrity that I know he possesses, he will go down in history as the political maverick he has striven to be."
Gadsby says he will fast until McCain agrees to give him and the Phoenix 9/11 Truth group two hours of time: one hour for presentation of evidence and facts followed by one hour of debate between leading investigators and scientists on both sides of the issue, "I challenge them to allow the American people to view the video footage of WTC7's collapse and the various experts describing the characteristics of a controlled demolition. The people are not stupid, once they see the evidence, huge questions will arise and it is right here where folks become intimidated. But this must be done, as painful as it is."
Tim King, a spokesman for Phoenix 9/11 Truth urges activists around the country to assist the Phoenix group in bringing media attention to Gadsby's unprecedented Hungry for 9/11 Truth, hunger-strike. King urges citizens and activists to question McCain about the hunger-strike while he's on the campaign trail. For more information about the hunger-strike, go to 9-11.meetup.com/350.
