His response to the WTC 7 video:
"This is controlled demolition"

The Disbelievers - "To me, the report read as a cartoon." White-haired and courtly, Griffin sits on a couch in a hotel lobby in Manhattan, unspooling words in that reasonable Presbyterian minister's voice. "It's a much greater stretch to accept the official conspiracy story than to consider the alternatives." - (Also a new interview in the Chicago Concious Guide

UPI News Service, 09/03/2006 - Former Air America Radio co-host Janeane Garofalo may have been downgraded to "guest host" status months ago due to a planned Sept. 11 show...

Guns and Butter Wednesday Program: The Global Dominance Group and 9/11

Presentation by Director of Project Censored, Dr. Peter Phillips, at the June 4th, 2006 "9/11 Education and Strategy Conference" in Chicago. This talk is based on recent research conducted at Sonoma State University which identified 240 global dominance advocates who have been the primary promoters and beneficiaries of the so-called war on terror before and after 9/11. Dr. Phillips covers the rise of the neocons and their agenda, who benefited from 9/11 and permanent war, the complicity of the corporate media, and the stolen presidential elections. It's a "who dunnit" analysis and investigation of the greatest crime of the 21st century. 1pm Pacific - Streaming at: KPFA.org
