Re: 9/11 skeptics head to Canada, May 1
Many thanks for the article detailing the appearance of David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage at three universities in Canada. I, like millions of others, am still waiting for a mainstream paper to fully attend to the details of what these men are saying. Lay out the evidence, please.
It does no good to offer comments from detractors that “they are imposters, liars and con-men.” Are they? Show us why this is so. We no longer react to serious questions based on emotion.
These men are arguing based on the evidence collected. Any detractor must counter the evidence, not simply smear their character. Of particular seriousness is the collapse of WTC 7 and the evidence of explosive thermitic material found in four separate dust samples collected from ground zero.
This peer-reviewed evidence has been available for one year already, and has been completely ignored by such “prestigious” and “reputable papers” as the Star, and refuted by no one. Why?
The Star could be the first mainstream paper in North America to do this, and would then salvage a reputation for courageous and real news-gathering. Millions look forward to this day.

Why are the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth being compared to Ann Coulter? Did these professionals have to be warned of Canada’s hate laws? I think not. I certainly hope someone from the Star will attend this event and report on the evidence that will be presented.

As a supply teacher, last June I showed a Grade 12 class a video that argued the ’69 moon landing was a hoax. When these students, in their last year of high school, submitted their written work, I was dismayed that almost all were dubious that that historic event had ever happened. O, the gullibility of youth.

Anyone who has taken a close look at the events of 9/11 and has kept an open mind as to what really happened that horrible day knows that a fraud of immense proportions has taken place. I strongly urge anyone who is able, take in this lecture and begin to discover what is really happening in this world. David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage are the leading authorities in the world on the subject.

My first reaction to this story was rage. These 9/11 deniers do a huge disrespect to those innocent souls and the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11. The deniers are to 9/11 what Ernst Zundel was to the Holocaust. Rightfully we kicked Zundel out of Canada. Yet we tolerate the 9/11 deniers and offer them forums to spew their vitriol.
However, upon sober reflection, I believe that we conclude that democracy and free speech have won. The 9/11 deniers are allowed to voice their specious, disgusting dissenting opinions.
