"Al Jazeera" discussed "Conspiracy Theories"

During a discussion about "What do conspiracy theories say about us?" (al jazeera), Lance Dehaven-Smith, Professor, Florida State University, said, that he would support a new 911-investigation. His specializations are "Public policy, political theory, philosophy of science, public opinion, and Florida politics and government." (askew). He already published in the "Journal for 911 studies" (911-blogger) about his insights.

During the programm most of the comments were suspicious about official accounts of events, proven to be lies. So it was a good success for spreading 911truth.

In a 2006 peer-reviewed journal article, he coined the term "state crimes against democracy" (SCAD) to delineate a crime category for Watergate, Iran-Contra, Plame-gate, and other conspiracies in high office. SCAD research has been highlighted in special issues of American Behavioral Scientist (February 2010) and Public Integrity (June 2011). Dr. deHaven-Smith's new book, Conspiracy Theory in America, was published in April 2013 by the University of Texas Press.

In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall he talks with Andy Steele about the term "conspiracy theory" and how it's been used by the intelligence and media establishment to attack skeptical inquiries from the public into major events like 9/11.
