January 26, 2010 ABC NEWS -- Former 9/11 Chairs Criticize Handling of Detroit Christmas Day Bomber Case
The two former chairmen of the 9/11 Commission expressed concerns today about how security agencies responded to the arrest of alleged Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and the decision to quickly charge him instead of attempting to gain valuable intelligence information.
Before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, former 9/11 Commission vice-chair Lee Hamilton testified there needs to be more urgency when confronting Al Qaeda, saying the terrorist group "is on the march, not on the run…the sense of urgency for terrorism has been too low."
A recent (september 12,2007) report from anderson cooper's 360 program, where they re-visit the "mystery plane" that flew over the white house on 9/11.
BTW: That's the third time I've heard Hamilton saying "we found no evidence". A broken record? Studied? Did they search for this issue? Finding no evidence is not hard to imagine if you didn't search for it.
Lee Hamilton, CBS 2006
Well, of course, we did deal with it. The charge that dynamite, or whatever, brought down the World Trade Towers, we of course looked at very carefully - ]we find no evidence of that.
Lee Hamilton, Washington Journal, C-SPAN, 2005
"the Commission had found zero evidence that our government planned that attack."
Friday evening, March 23, approximately 65 visitors crowded into the SkyDragon in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to attend the Hamilton 9/11 Truth Symposium which featured a viewing of 911 Mysteries followed by a talk with engineer Dr Bob Korol and Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice member Graeme MacQueen.
Korol and MacQueen, both retired professors from McMaster University, discussed the topic of controlled demolition primarily focusing on an article authored by Graeme MacQueen entitled 118 Witnesses: The Firefighter's Testimony to Explosions in the Twin Towers published in PDF format at the Journal of 9/11 Studies.
A lively question and answer session followed with an overwhelming majority of the audience supporting the conclusions drawn by Korol and MacQueen. There was however a small minority of those who attempted to discredit the researchers using the typical technique of comparing those who question 9/11 with those who question the 1947 Roswell event.
Also in attendance was Ian Woods of Global Outlook as well as Dr. Frank R. Greening who had previously agreed to debate Dr Steven Jones in support of the government's official conspiracy theory. Ian Woods asked Dr. Greening to participate in a debate possibly to be held at an upcoming Truth conference in Vancouver. The acceptance of this challenge by Dr. Greening was captured on tape.
Overall, the event was a resounding success with discussions between concerned citizens continuing well into the night. Videos of this event are forthcoming. Additional information regarding Graeme MacQueen can also be found at the Patriots Question 9/11 website.
