Portland's Willamette Week covers 9/11 Truth

Last week, Portland 9/11 Truth hosted an evening with Mary Starrett and representatives of Evangelicals Against the War. At the last minute, we were told we couldn't use the leftist bookstore where we usually hold our meetings and presentations, because members of the store's collective felt that Starrett and the evangelical folk (who are very savvy and very outspoken about 9/11 Truth) would be "violating their safe space." A reporter from one of the two local alternative weeklies thought this was an interesting angle (because clearly the truth about the events of 9/11 doesn't rate on its own /snark) and covered the event in both her online column and an editorial in today's print edition.

A video of Starrett's presentation was posted as a blog last week. I encourage people to watch it not just for Starrett, who was the Constitution Party's candidate for governor of Oregon last year, but for the speaker from Evangelicals Against the War, whose comments preceed her talk. I'll be the first to insist that we disagree on many important issues. At this juncture in history, however, I want to make some kind of alliance with anyone who recognizes that the lies about 9/11 are at the root of a genocidal war abroad, and an Orwellian subversion of our civil liberties at home, and these people do.

And feel free to offer a little truth to Portlanders in the comments here: Willy Week.

Mary Starrett, the Constitution Party's 2006 Candidate for Governor of Oregon, says 9/11 was an inside job.

Portland 9/11 Truth hosted an evening with local media figure and politico Mary Starrett on Wednesday, February 28. In addition to Ms. Starrett, we heard a representative of a local Evangelical Christian group called "Believers Against the War" and had a number of members of that group as guests as well. They all pull no punches when it comes to 9/11 Truth.

A reporter for the Willamette Week was present and interviewed Ms. Starrett for her online column and possibly an article in the print version of the paper. (Ha ha, Phoenix -- you all have the "Phoenix New Times" and our local alterna-paper actually employs real journalists.) The Willamette Week column is here.

In addition, the whole presentation was recorded by a member of our group:
