To capitalize on the strategic importance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the International Center for 9/11 Studies ( http://www.ic911studies.org/ ) is sponsoring a four-day set of hearings, September 8-11, at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Officially called “The International Hearings on the Events of September 11, 2001”, this historic gathering of panelists, expert witnesses, and numerous key figures in the 9/11 truth movement is being more commonly referred to as the “Toronto Hearings" ( http://torontohearings.org/ ). Focusing primarily on the scientific forensic and other evidence and eyewitness testimony, with emphasis on the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises, the Hearings will identify some of the best evidence regarding the events of 9/11, thus encouraging and enabling national and/or international legal agencies to pursue formal investigations.

Laurie Manwell on Psychological Resistance to 9/11 Truth, on "9/11 In Context"

On this week's "9/11 In Context" show, which airs Thursday, December 30, at 3pm ET, I will interview Laurie Manwell, Ph.D. candidate in Applied Cognitive Sciences at the University of Guelph. We will discuss the results of her research into the many reasons for the intense psychological resistance to 9/11 truth, and her positive strategies to present our information in ways that minimize denial and negative reactions. Laurie has published on the subject in the Journal of 9/11 Studies and is the author of "In Denial of Democracy: Social Psychological Implications for Public Discourse on State Crimes Against Democracy Post-9/11" in the recent breakthrough issue of American Behavioral Scientist on "state crimes against democracy."

Listen to Community Currency Radio Show on Thursday, September 2, 2010, 5 pm- 6 pm EST - to learn more about State Crimes Against Democracy with Laurie Manwell.

State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADs) are actions undertaken in direct violation of sworn oaths of office to circumvent, exploit, or otherwise undermine or subvert laws and institutions to advance personal or political gain and/or to silence or otherwise suppress public foreknowledge and awareness. Laurie Manwell helped coin the term SCAD when she published an article in the American Behavioral Scientist entitled In Denial of Democracy: Social Psychological Implications for Public Discourse on State Crimes Against Democracy Post-9/11.

Journal of 9/11 Studies Letter: Correspondence from James Bennett to Laurie Manwell with Responses

Journal of 9/11 Studies Letter:

Correspondence from James Bennett to Laurie Manwell with Responses

(06/17/07 to 06/17/07):

James Bennett [of “screw loose change”]:

I was reading your paper published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies, and I was wondering why you misrepresented the Angus-Reid poll on page 16:

“An Angus-Reid poll comparing responses from 2002 and 2006 found similar results, and that in 2006, only 16% of Americans believed that the government is telling the truth about the events of 9/11[16].”

If you go to the poll, which you footnote, you find that that question does not even ask people whether they believe "the government is lying about the events of 9/11":
