After reading a couple blog posts by Myopicvoid and AboveAverageAmerican (thank you for the insight by the way and I hope you aren't upset I "borrowed" your ideas). I put together this email that I then forwarded to everyone I know friends, family, etc. The response has been phenomenal! People who vehemently argued with me before are now, at least, admitting the official collapse explanation is not adequate. I could not believe the responses I received. One person said, and I quote," It was like someone suddenly turning on a light bulb." I am very encouraged by this and I owe it all to the sharing of ideas and strategies we have utilized on this site. Thanks to everyone, but in particular thank you to Myopicvoid and AboveAverageAmerican. Here is the email and you have my express permission to copy paste cut (as long as it stays within the general theme) or email to anyone you feel inclined to.

Here it is:
This email is slightly more complicated than my usual emails, however, I believe it is pretty striking when viewed in whole.
"Where's Your Evidence?"
This statement is an inevitable response given by people who have trouble see the obvious lies and distortions regarding 9/11. Of course none of us have slam-dunk documented evidence that proves exactly what happened. The whole raison d'etre of this movement is to discover the who, how, and why (although the why seems pretty clear at this point). So the next time you encounter this reactionary auto-response a very effective strategy is to simply in return ask them, "where is your evidence that the official story is wholly true." Thus de-activating this ridiculous mental block. I have utilized it several times and at the very least it enables the conversation to focus on what has not been proven rather than what can be proven.
The Explosion Few Noticed
Controlled Demolition is Visually Obvious
There have been an increasing number of eye witness reports of explosions within the World Trade Center buildings on September 11th 2001. Most notably William Rodriguez has spoken publicly of explosions in the sub-basements of the towers before any aircraft struck them (1). Many police and firefighters have reported explosions as the towers came down (2). Not to mention all the video taped 'regular people' speaking of explosions. So for what it's worth, I will highlight an explosion that is visually obvious but few have focused on.
The collapse of the North Tower (WTC1) happened after the South Tower's implosion. It was a little different than the first tower to go down. The difference was that it started with a very strong, visually obvious explosion.
As a spin-off to my previous blog : The "Official Investigation" Blessed by FEMA and ASCE is a Half-Baked Farce - 9/11 Memory Hole - I wanted to explore one element that keeps nagging at me...
Reading through this amazing Diary by American Red Cross volunteer Atmo Kabir, several statements roused my curiosity, in particular the below paragraph.
Reading 9/11 related forums and articles, I frustratingly often encounter comments from supporters of the "official theory" stating that WTC debris was investigated and that no signs of explosives etc were found. They always fail to mention that no GZ access was allowed for investigation (including FEMA), investigators were only able to scrutinize what was taken to the Freshkills site, obviously we do not know what was NOT taken to Freshkills.
Anyway, this reminded me of the very honest, yet damning article (Jan 2002) written by the editor of "Fire Engineering Magazine" Bill Manning, including the "half baked farce" statement. Below are a few of those quotes :
- To treat the September 11 incident any differently would be the height of stupidity and ignorance. The destruction and removal of evidence must stop immediately.
Several months have passed since Prof. Jones revealed his startling evidence that supposedly proves some sort of explosives/incendiaries were used in the demolition of the WTC 1,2 and 7. When I first viewed his presentation I was floored because this was the physical evidence we needed. Since then however I have heard little about it. Does anybody know what the status is with that? And what can we do to help speed up the process of getting this information out there and peer-reviewed? any ideas? Take care everyone, keep fighting the good fight

I posted this on Alvin R's blog but thought I'd copy & paste it here too because it states my core beliefs around uncovering the truth about 911:
Truth & Reconciliation
I think it's safe to assume that there are people out there still living who know significant pieces of the real 911 story or people who know more than the pieces. What's their incentive to talk other than having a spiritual conversion (which I believe is possible for anyone and something we ought not discount, John Newton, the captain of many slave ships and author of the song "Amazing Grace" proved that) ?
We have to enact a truth & reconciliation law as South Africa did after apartheid ended. We have to make it clear that revenge is not what we're after but the truth. We have to give serious consideration to granting immunity or limited immunity to persons willing to come forward to tell what they know. If we can't bring institutionalized forgiveness , ( meaning in part, no capital punishment in the harshest of instances) into the process than we are no better than the thugs who pulled off this historic crime.
Item: Jim Fetzer, Steve Jones, etc. Jim's blog of a few days ago went on and on about the evidence, what shows what, etc.:
Comment: I do not believe that there is any viable material evidence from the WTC and that there most likely never will be. Analyses of the dust are interesting, but not definitive. There will never be strong evidence from any of the steel or other rubble because 1) most of it has been destroyed, 2) what is left is not representative, and 3) there has been no credible chain of custody, so we will never be able to make definitive statements based on this kind of evidence.
Item: Flight 93 crash site, the Pentagon:
Comment: Much the same as above. There never will be good physical evidence from these locations because if it has not been destroyed it has been tampered with.
Item: Phone calls from the planes:
Comment: There MAY be some evidence here if we can find the phone records. But these, too, could easily be tampered with.
Item: Atta's luggage, the passport.
Item: What evidence do we have?
Although I've read extensively on the 911 topic, this was new to me.
I thought I'd share it in case its new to many of you.

9/11 and the Evidence
Professor David Ray Griffin is the nemesis of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory. In his latest book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin destroys the credibility of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Popular Mechanics reports, annihilates his critics, and proves himself to be a better scientist and engineer than the defenders of the official story.
Griffin’s book is 385 pages divided into four chapters and containing 1,209 footnotes. Without question, the book is the most thorough presentation and examination of all known facts about the 9/11 attacks. Griffin is a person who is sensitive to evidence, logic, and scientific reasoning. There is no counterpart on the official side of the story who is as fully informed on all aspects of the attacks as Griffin.
If Osama is still alive he won’t be free for much longer.
Of course he’s dead though, isn’t he?
Another Native American Story
It was all a coincidence – Using occam’s razor to prove 9/11 truth.
There are really only two theories regarding the events on 9/11. That there was no complicity outside of al queda or there was complicity outside of al queda. Members of the 9/11 truth community ascribe that there was complicity outside of al queda. There was intelligence agency involvement. How much of that involvement belonged to Pakistani ISI, the CIA, Mossad, Saudi intelligence, British intelligence, the FBI, we can go round and round about (and we do). But the bottom line is that there was some intelligence agency involvement. The second area of complicity is U.S. government officials being involved in some fashion. Whether that was in blocking other officials from stopping the attacks, helping to coordinate the attacks, aiding in setting up the conditions which allowed the attack to be successful (i.e. war games and drills) or other scenarios is something that can’t be concretely determined at this time without further investigation.
Early Monday morning, after reading the initial blog post (http://911blogger.com/node/6458) I located a list of what raw news files were available via archive.org (posted below) and downloaded as much as possible because it was obvious that this was too good to continue. As the story broke the content was removed. Timestamps indicate the data had been available for a few weeks if not longer.
Every one of these files is "in the wild" and I bet that a few people were able to get all of them. Below I have posted what I was able to download. Please help fill in the missing files or missing links. If you can help, contact me via http://911blogger.com/user/1665/contact and we will arrange a data transfer. The goal is to make this entire archive available via bittorrent. I'll host the trackers on the moon if necessary.
Let's discuss the reasons why. I can think of MANY.
REPORTER: Jeff Ferrell
Long before the war in Iraq, the "War on Terror" began in Afghanistan and the hunt for Al Qaeda leader Usama Bin Laden. So, why then is there not a single reference to 9/11 on the FBI'S '10 Most Wanted' poster of Bin Laden?
First of all, it turns out, Bin Laden has never been indicted for the attacks of September 11th. The FBI poster reads: "Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world."
Regarding the 9/11 omission in the FBI poster, Special Agent Sheila Thorne in the bureau's New Orleans office told us quote, "the indictment could be superceded if necessary." In other words, charges relating to September 11th could be 'tacked on' later-- for something described as 'The Pearl Harbor of our generation.'
