The Sacred Mysteries of 9/11

by Dr. Graeme MacQueen

"Today, our nation saw evil." George W. Bush, September 11, 2001

September 11, 2009 will not be a simple anniversary of an extraordinary day but the mythic return of a day that is now in the calendar of American civil religion.

American citizens will be urged to re-achieve the levels of patriotic fervour stimulated by the original event by flying the nation’s flag.[1]

Pilgrimage to “Ground Zero” will thrive.

No one familiar with war and nationalism will be surprised by the religious aspects of these memorials and revisitings.[2]

The homeland was violated. Blood sacrifice and murder were accomplished. The nation, after reeling from the blow, found a sense of meaning and direction only by setting off on its own path of blood sacrifice.

I will not discuss here the well known aspects of the path chosen--the illegal invasions and torture abroad, the degrading of civil rights at home, and the parallel developments in other states, including Canada.

Graeme MacQueen Debunks Mackey & Roberts

The BBC program comes out on Sunday, so I thought I'd get a leg up and post this here. I expect the arguments of Mackey and Roberts to be incorporated into the BBC program.

Waiting for Seven: WTC 7 Collapse Warnings in the FDNY Oral Histories
Prof. Graeme MacQueen

This is a great article. It totally debunks the idea put out by MacKey and Roberts that the WTC 7 foreknowledge was a rational thing for the firemen because of all the fire and debris damage.

This article shows that only 7 firemen actually made observations that they thought WTC 7 would fall, while 50 "were told" it would fall. These 7 firemen sound very confused and paranoid, and contradict NIST, who still doesn't know why WTC 7 fell seven years later.

MacQueen also finds that a majority of the firemen "definitely" thought WTC 7 would fall. Really, they knew definitely?

"The Record" Prints Fair Article for Kitchener-Waterloo 9/11 Event

9/11 theories subject of debate
March 13, 2008

There was a time not long ago when holding a debate about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was taboo, even among university students.

But nearly seven years after two planes felled the World Trade Center towers in New York, the University of Waterloo debating society is opening the door on the issue in a discussion next Wednesday.

While there now seems to be no shortage of scholars trying to debunk the U.S. government's conclusions about Sept. 11, debate organizers struggled to find someone willing to defend the official version of events contained in U.S. 9/11 Commission Report.

Students had hoped representatives from Popular Mechanics magazine would defend the government position, since the magazine issued a report challenging some Sept. 11 conspiracy theories. But the group couldn't afford the honorarium, said Adnan Zuberi, public relations manager of the debating society and a third-year math and physics student.

New article published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies

We have a new article today, from Professor Graeme MacQueen, entitled –

“Waiting for Seven: WTC 7 Collapse Warnings in the FDNY Oral Histories.”

Here are a few excerpts.

“In the debate over the collapse of World Trade Center 7, warnings of the building’s collapse have come to play an important role. In addition to the numerous collapse warnings mentioned in written documents, such as those I will be using in this article, we have seen a growing number of videotape fragments and interviews in which people appear to have been told in advance of Seven’s collapse. Many proponents of the controlled demolition hypothesis take these cases, both written and video, as evidence that the building’s collapse was brought about deliberately.”

“But those who think that Seven’s fall was natural rather than deliberate have not shied away from the collapse warnings. They have simply interpreted them in a different way. In essence, they have said that the warnings were rational and expected given the severe damage Seven had sustained.”
