The Elephant In The Room and We Are Change UK on Edge TV

Dean Puckett director of The Elephant In the Room a new documentary about the 9/11 truth movement and Gareth Newnham of We Are Change UK appear on British TV to discuss the film and 9/11 truth in general THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM is Available to Watch and buy 1st September 2008 exclusively at: http://www.nosmokewithoutfire.co.uk

The Elephant in the Room is a documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of 'conspiracy theorists' who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate. The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event. Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy theorists? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement?

the "first responder" issue

I shut it off when it got to the first responder stuff. Sure it's important, but I think the first responder health issue is an issue that is really separate from the 9/11 truth movement itself and should be in its own documentary. I notice almost every 9/11 truth documentary now that comes out has a big section about the health of the first responders and the Bush Administration's lack of adequate response, but I don't feel that belongs in a documentary that questions the events of 9/11 itself. It's really a distraction issue, an after-effect that focuses people's attention away from a much larger issue behind it, away from the man behind the curtain. It's something that I find most "mainstream" people would rather focus on than looking at the much harder, more painful and more relevant issues of who orchestrated 9/11 and how was it accomplished.

I find that people from all over the political spectrum are very receptive to the first responder health issue, and very willing to examine it and damn the Bush Administration for it, but that's because it's something that happened AFTER 9/11. People on the left especially are happy to scrutinize anything and everything that happened after 9/11. (See Goodman, Colbert, Stewart, Maddow, Olbermann, Sheehan, etc.) Most people will gravitate in that direction if you let them because it's much easier. But it's really no more consequential to the events of 9/11 itself than the issue of the Bush Administration not giving the soldiers adequate armor during their tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. While it's true, focusing on that very human, very personal, very individual symptom lets people ignore the much larger issue of why they were sent there at all. The first responder issue affects the first responders and their loved ones. The issue of who is responsible for the events of 9/11 itself affects every living person in the world today.

That the Bush Administration & Giuliani didn't do enough to protect the health of the first responders, didn't give the firefighters adequate radios, and didn't give the soldiers adequate body armor is all true and it's very unfortunate and typical of their own brand of arrogant evil, but focusing the public's attention, sympathy, and anger on issues like that and bringing that into the fold of "9/11 truth" only makes it easier for people to be outraged about a symptom while ignoring the much bigger crime that caused all of those things to happen in the first place.

Someday we may have congressional investigations into toxic dust and inadequate radios, but that won't be any sort of victory for 9/11 truth. After investigations into the first responder/toxic dust issue, we would know just as much about what happened on 9/11 as we did before. If the Bush Administration gets scolded for not providing adequate care for the first responders, so what? They still get away with perpetrating the crime of the century and escaping the blame for it. The neocons aren't going to lose power because they got slapped on the wrist over poor handling of the heath of the 9/11 first responders. I certainly hope those guys and their families get huge settlements someday, but that's not going to advance the cause of 9/11 truth one bit.

Is it related to 9/11?

Yes. Did they lie about it? Yes. Has anyone been held responsible for those lies? No. Therefore, it becomes a 9/11 Truth issue. On top of the fact that it shows those in power are more than capable of disregarding 1000's of human lives. Heroes to boot. Completely discrediting the idea that "they would never." Also, why ON EARTH would we turn our backs on them? It is a moral issue. Morally, we shouldn't do it.

Real victories are few and far between in 9/11 Truth, but every dollar raised to help the responders counts as one. To me, it's really no different a decision than supporting the family members. Supporting both goes hand in hand with regards to 9/11 Truth. In my opinion.


Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

These people ROCK !!!

If you had listened to the end, tommychong, you would have realized that a lot of important issues came up during this 40 min LIVE appearance of 9/11 Truth on TV, and that Dean Puckett, who spent a lot of money, and a year and a half of work making the film, that features Cynthia McKinney, William Rodriguez, John Feal, Alex Jones, Scott Forbes, Luke Rudkowski, Richard Gage and many more.. , is making the film available for free for you to watch, if you watch it before September 1st, but he is asking you to make a voluntary donation to “The Feal Good Foundation” that is helping to cover the health costs of the First Responders who suffered from the unconventional and irresponsible demolition of the WTC asbestos riddled real-estate. If you choose to watch it after September 1st, you will only be able to watch it by first contributing a sum to the feal-good foundation. The site is www.nosmokewithoutfire.co.uk

Every film and cultural event is a wonderful opportunity for us make mailings and contact more and more people about these all important issues. The Elephant in the Room is a low key perspective kind of 9/11 Truth film, but all the more powerful, since you may come aboard just on the curiosity to get to know some “9/11 Truth activists”. It is coming in a necessary moment, since after all these years, we have to ask ourselves why the Common Sense of 9/11 Truth arguments are still so shunned in the media, and informal political discussions as well as in formal political debate.

Gareth Newnham of We Are Change UK carries a tee-shirt with two big letters “ D U “, to remind us that the biggest, most monumental criminality in this whole act of gangsterism, is the dumping of tons of DU munitions on the soil of Irak and Afghanistan for millions of years to come. The areas contaminated need to be identified rapidly, and all possible measures taken to neutralize this highly deadly radio-active waste munition.

It is the enormousness of the criminality that has made it so difficult for Americans to come to realize that so called respectable people in white collars could be capable of such dastardly plans, in the name of “what is good for the Nation”…

Gareth Newnham specified that atleast 16 “We Are Change UK” groups have sprung up in a short time, and the movement is growing fast!

This is real good news, and the interviewed people are very approachable and inspiring!

Love,

"unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. If such a determination is not embodied in our political vision we have no hope of restoring what is so nearly lost to us - the dignity of man." (Harold Pinter)

First responders are relevant

I think some very plausible arguments can be made that first responder health issues do bear a relationship to 9/11 truth. It may not be the sort of thing that can be ultimately be used be used to convict the perpetrators of 9/11, but we'd do well to keep our eyes opened.

Did the EPA declare the air safe to breathe just so Wall Street could reopen and commerce resume? Perhaps. That could also just be a good "cover." An alternative motive might've been that quickly returning NYC to normalcy was good for shifting public attention away from the wreckage and how it was being quickly recycled without regard to investigative protocol.

Why hasn't the Bush administration taken a hand in addressing the special health issues of first responders? To save on taxpayer dollars that this same administration can't give away fast enough when it comes to warmaking and porkbarrel? I'm not so sure. Another explanation is that making this into a policy issue would draw attention to the abestosis (damage from asbestos particles permanently embedded in the lungs) so many are suffering from and thereby beg questions about the "collapse" (explosions) of the three WTC skyscrapers.

Questions like:

1) Isn't it peculiar how much these building disintegrated into dust?

2) How coincidental is it when you have exceedingly huge white elephant skyscrapers that can't be cost-effectively demolished because of air-safety asbestos issues, and then some suicidal jetliner hijackings conveniently do those demolitions for you without costing you a cent? Might bringing the matter of asbestosis into public consciousness also help bring the suspicious convenience of those "collapses" into consciousness also?

I don't have the answers. But we should be investigating everything, including every possible motive, just as prosecutors do when they're looking to get the goods on suspects.

There's also a public relations angle to all this. The enemies of 9/11 try to portray us as dishonoring the first responder heroes, exploiting the public's indoctrination in Islamophobia by the controlled media. It behooves us to show our alignment with those heroes by helping publicize that it was the hidden perpetrators of 9/11 who dishonored them that day and who've continued to dishonor them ever since.

Nice job guys.

I think you handled yourselves admirably.

I agree on both fronts -

I agree on both fronts - that the first responder issue is important to 9/11 truth (for example - the proof tat the concrete was pulverised to a fine powder is sitting in their lungs, slowly killing them), and that we should be campaining on their behalf regardless of it's "usefullness" to 9/11 truth - simply as compassionate and moral human beings...

.

Yes agreed!

Thanks to all concerned!

9/11 24/7 UNTIL JUSTICE!!

Dean Puckett's confrontation of Sir Richard Dearlove....

....former head of MI6 late last year, was one of the very best 9/11 Truth moments of all time. I admire Dean Puckett for that captured moment with such a flawless performance. It will always be with me. Thanks, Dean!

I truly admire you, Dean.

Dean Puckett...
...don't believe them!
