The language of deception is used against us every day and most of us don’t even realize it has been done to us or realize the devastating effect it has on us. My task here is to expose some of the subtle deceptions hidden within the terminology we in the 9/11 truth movement use every day. My goal is to shine a light on the subtle deceptions that pass under our radar every day and to counter those deceptions with the language of truth.
First we have to consider how we in the 9/11 truth movement describe what happened to the World Trade Center (WTC)? The question is, should we say that WTC 1, 2, and 7 “collapsed” or should we say they were “demolished” and does it really matter all that much? At first glance it may not seem to be a particularly important question as to which word we use. I will expose however that it is, in fact, very important which word we use. Furthermore I want to reveal how and why the debate has been framed from the beginning by our opponents with the endlessly repeated use of just one simple word, “collapsed”.
(So how did I do? Heavy constructive criticism is most welcome!)
This is the first of three YouTube videos of the June 30, 2009 PowerPoint presentation I gave for my CHEM 1411 class at South Texas College (STC). The subject was on thermite and thermate and how each of their respective nano-sized variants may have contributed to the collapse of World Trade Centers 1, 2, and most especially, 7.
The truth about 9/11
Published: June 20, 2009
I read with interest the letter from William Rice about 9/11 and the subsequent response from a reader to Rice's observations that discount all the facts that he presented. 9/11 discussions on op-ed pages rarely go well. One writer will offer an observation and then another will claim that observation to be absurd. This was exactly the case last week. No matter what fact you may present that shows the official version of events to be dubious, you will almost certainly be called a conspiracy theorist, or worse. TV personality and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck recently lumped those of us who claim to be part of the 9/11 Truth Movement in the same category as James W. Von Brunn, the man accused of murdering a guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. It's a strange leap of logic, but 9/11 discussions rarely elicit logical thinking.
29 Structural & Civil Engineers Cite Evidence for Controlled Explosive Demolition in Collapses of All 3 WTC High-Rises on 9/11
More than 700 architects and engineers have joined call for new investigation.
For Some, the Doubts Began Early
“Something is wrong with this picture,” thought Nathan Lomba, as he watched replays of the Twin Tower collapses on television on September 11, 2001. A licensed structural engineer trained in buildings’ responses to stress, Lomba saw more on the screen than you or I. He puzzled, “How did the structures collapse in near-symmetrical fashion when the damage was clearly not symmetrical?”
Lomba was hardly alone in his discomfort. Most structural engineers were surprised when the towers fell. They mainly kept their misgivings to themselves, though, as Scientific American and the Journal of Engineering Mechanics, BBC, the History Channel and government agencies such as FEMA and NIST offered varying and often imaginative theories to explain how fires brought the towers down.

Dr. Moffett Smears ‘Active Thermitic’ Paper by Association- Again
In another headlined article at OpEdNews.com, Sr. Editor Dr. Moffett has again smeared the peer-reviewed paper, Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe published in The Open Chemical Physics Journal, published by Bentham.org. A different Bentham.org journal, The Open Information Science Journal, recently published a hoax paper, and 2 editors resigned: Open Access Publisher Accepts Nonsense Manuscript for Dollars. See Dr. Moffett’s previous smear job rebutted by Dr. Michael Green, here: Pardon Our Dust, or, Why the World Trade Center Dust Matters. See Dr. Moffett’s current smear job here: 911 NanoTech Thermite Publisher Accepts Fake Paper, Editors quit
I find some areas of agreement with Dr. Moffet; for instance, he says: "The only way to find out what really happened [on 9/11] is to have a large panel of independent researchers reopen the case, with access to the classified documents that would be needed to make a valid assessment of all the data."

Richard Gage KMPH 26 Interview
The Fox TV (KMPH) affiliate in Fresno asked the kind of questions the Truth Movement has been waiting for. On their "Great Day" program, anchors Kim Stephens and Kopi Sotiropulos afforded Richard a friendly atmosphere, asked interesting questions, and reacted to his startling information appropriately and with a degree of humor. Very much missing was the familiar combative style normally associated with TV talk shows on which 9/11 Truth guests appear.

Controversial Group Re–Examines 9/11 In Clovis By Clint Olivier
FRESNO - More than a hundred people filled the Clovis Veterans Memorial Building to hear a call for an investigation into what happened to the buildings destroyed in the attacks of September 11th.
"We realize that this is very difficult information to take in," Architect Richard Gage said.
Gage spoke and presented evidence on why his group, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth wants the U.S. Congress to look into how and why the Twin Towers and another building, known as WTC-7, fell.
Some video was provided to KMPH News by the group, which claims a membership of more than 600 architects and engineers.
"We're not conspiracy theorists, we are technical building professionals looking at the forensic evidence, so we provide the evidence, and we ask for a new investigation, and let's let the chips fall where they may," Gage said.
Andrew Isolano is a retired New York City firefighter who watched the events of September 11th from the roof of his fire station in Brooklyn, before he was sent to ground zero.

May 15, 2009, Los Angeles, CA - Vice President Joseph Biden and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa took a tour of a community housing project of the Esperanza Community Housing Corp.
Jeremy Rothe-Kushel and Bruno Bruhwiler of WACLA Media sat among other members of the local press in the glaring sun in wait for the press conference scheduled to begin after the Vice President and the Mayor toured one of the buildings renovated by the Esperanza Community Housing Corporation. Secret Service officers were present in abundance in the 10' wide corridor where we were crammed behind residents of the renovated apartment complex. All of us were in close quarters with each other for at least one hour, and we all developed a courteous and jovial relationship with each other. The folks from Fox News were the most vocal, and they were not shy about their dislike for Biden and Obama. Later it turned out that one of the Fox reporters had a hot and healthy obsession with asking the Vice President about Karl Rove. One woman, an admittedly former journalist turned passionate advocate, claimed that although we were sitting in the scorching sun, our current position would probably be envied by most everyone in the rest of the country. It was not entirely clear whether she was referring to the Southern California weather or our proximity to a representative of the Hope and Change Administration™.

Chris Hedges "was there" and saw Building 7 "go down" and "it does" look like a controlled demolition, but he's not sure it was.
On February 4, 2009, Chris Hedges was on hand at the Hammer Museum in Westwood, CA, to participate on a panel entitled "Homegrown Hatred."
(Watch the whole discussion here: http://hammer.ucla.edu/watchlisten/watchlisten/show_id/70452/show_type/video?browse=none&category=0&search= )
While much of the discussion was fear-mongering and highly propagandistic, some of Hedges deeper insights made it more than bearable, despite being personally singled out by moderator Ian Masters to not be allowed to ask a question. An aside on Ian Masters: Mr. Masters considers having had Matt Taibbi on his show on KPFK to childishly impugn the 9-11 truth movement to be his journalistic contribution to uncovering the darker truths of 9/11. However, Masters is to be commended for directing me to ask Hedges about his take on the destruction of Building 7.
At about 3:30 into the video, Hedges responds to the question of
Jeremy Rothe-Kushel: "Ian said I should get your take on Building 7, because you were there."
Barack Obama was in Southern California over a few days in March 2009. After an event in Downtown Los Angeles on March 19, 2009, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel of WeAreChangeLA Citizen's Media asked the Sheriff of Los Angeles County, Lee Baca, whether President Obama had mentioned clearing up the ongoing cover-up of the 9/11 black op.
"Did President Obama say anything--did he say anything about clearing up the biggest crime of the century, the 9/11 black op, and the continuing cover-up after it? Because we still have 30-something Angelenos whose murders are unsolved from that day and a lot of us, including all the family members,
