Ethical Reflections on the 9/11 Controversy

From Foreign Policy Journal

Do Information Science and Media Professionals Have a Duty to Provide Evidence-Based Information to a Questioning Public?

This essay was originally published by the international journal, Information for Social Change. It has been republished here with permission from the author.

Abstract: While it is recognized that through the use of meta-analysis and randomized controlled trials the standard of excellence in evidenced-based medicine (EBM) stands alone on a pinnacle, there is nonetheless an evidence-based methodology that can be applied across the board in other decision-making areas.  Though research into the events of 9/11 has not yet attained the rigor achieved by EBM, it is still possible to rank the research in this field according to evidence-based principles. This article explains the principles, points to sources that exemplify them, and argues the ethical obligation of librarians and journalists to advance those sources .

Ground Zero

Nine-eleven has done more to change the world’s political landscape than any other event since World War II.

And 9/11 is far from over:  it triggered what Western leaders have declared an “endless” or “generational” war on terror.  Even President Obama stated in March 2009 that the Afghan-Pakistan border region “has become the most dangerous place in the world” for the American people.[1]

Increasingly, however, the official account of its cause has come under rigorous scientific scrutiny and doubt.  In Europe, strong media coverage followed the unchallenged 2009 discovery of high-tech military explosives in the World Trade Center dust.[2]

More impossible ‘eyewitness’ accounts of 9/11: Renaud and McIntyre

By Craig McKee (http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com)

One of the most bizarre and unbelievable accounts given by anyone with TV network connections on Sept. 11, 2001 was that of Theresa Renaud, described as the wife of CBS Early Show producer Jack Renaud.

Renaud was recounting live on CBS how she had been at her window and had heard the North Tower explosion. While telling the story, she sees the second alleged impact. Her account of that, live, was very revealing.

Before that second impact, she explained to host Bryant Gumbel that her office building in Chelsea looked “directly on to” the towers (even though it was several miles north). She described how her building was the tallest in the area, giving her a good view of the World Trade Center.

Renaud described the first impact this way: “I would say that approximately 10 minutes ago there was a major explosion from, probably it looks like from the 80th floor, it looks like it’s affected probably four to eight floors, major flames are coming out of the, let’s see, the north side and also the east side of the building, yes.”

NZ911TRUTH in mainstream news

Bilderberg member Hillary Clinton arrived at Parliament today, and was welcomed by a protest featuring NZ911TRUTH. TVNZ aired footage of Mike Woods, who said "the evidence is overwhelming that the buildings [WTC 1, 2 & 7] were brought down by controlled demolition". 3NEWS - the music video and celebrity gossip specialists - did a poorer job by not airing the raw footage on live TV. Although, they did post raw footage on their website. In the online footage, TV3 filmed a clip showing Jade Tuckwell's sign, which read "Hillary's CFR pimps want to steal Iran's oil".

TVNZ political reporter Michael Parkin described the protest as "pretty pitiful". This comes as no surprise given the small turnout, which mainly featured members of Peace Action Wellington and Indymedia. Regardless, it achieved a milestone for NZ911TRUTH. This was the first time NZ911TRUTH received coverage of its own, as opposed to us getting coverage for AE911TRUTH. Follow the links below to watch the videos:

Media Roots Radio- Able Danger, Blowback, Iran

Media Roots Radio Episode 3- Able Danger, Blowback, Iran by Media Roots

On this week's episode of Media Roots radio we question why Fox news has been spearheading the Able Danger investigation and why the 'intellectual left' reinforces the myth of the War on Terror and Al Qaeda. We also discuss Jan Brewer's shocking public appearances and dispel popular talking points and myths about Iran by scrutinizing things like the mistranslated mantra 'Israel should be wiped off the map'.

9/11 (And George Bush) For Dummies

Link here---> http://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/911-and-george-bush-for-dummies/

Still think Iraq or Saddam Hussain had anything to do with 9/11?

Still think George Bush Jr. is an idiot?

Well the listen as George Bush Jr, Dick Cheney, John Edwards, and Donald Rumsfeld tell you in their own words that Iraq is innocent.

And watch as George W. Bush morphs from a formidable orator and debater, to an Academy Award deserving buffoon in just 4 years time.

Still think Bush is an idiot? Well then my friend, it is you who have been made the fool...

The Toronto G20 Riot Fraud

by Terry Burrows

June 26, 2010.

Toronto is right now in the midst of a massive government / media propaganda fraud. As events unfold, it is becoming increasingly clear that the 'Black Bloc' are undercover police operatives engaged in purposeful provocations to eclipse and invalidate legitimate G20 citizen protest by starting a riot. Government agents have been caught doing this before in Canada.
