"We'll Soon Know if Obama Will Expose 9/11 Truth"


As internet activists, it's always good to do regular searches on "9/11," "9/11 conspiracy" and "9/11 truth" to see if there are any recent articles worth mentioning. Today, I happen to find the following piece, very favorable, written by an obviously well-read Shelton Lankford. While the article is positive, the first 10 or so comments are rather hateful, negative comments telling Mr. Lankford to take his meds. I was the first positive comment. I realize that many of us feel lazy when it comes to registering an account with a paper in order to comment, but it really does only take a minute. Please take the time to not only comment but also e-mail the author and thank him.
We'll Soon Know if Obama Will Expose 9/11 Truth

The calendar has ticked over and in 16 days, we won't have President Bush to kick around any more.

9/11 And Air America

9/11 And Air America

by Shelton F. Lankford, Pilots For 9/11 Truth

When I signed up for the first Air America cruise, one of my goals was to challenge the open-minded, progressive listeners and radio hosts on 9/11 Truth, or rather the lack of it in their program content. My elevator speech was to the effect that, by attacking all the monsters that have been unleashed by the Bush administration piecemeal - Iraq, Patriot Act, Spying, Torture, Rendition, gutting the Constitution, etc. , it was like attacking a giant squid by grappling with each of its tentacles individually. We don't have enough arms, strength, or endurance to do it. By ignoring 9/11, we, in effect, ignore the body and brain of the monster, and have no hope of defeating it. It isn't a point that is original with me, but I don't mind stealing in an emergency - this is it.

Imagine my elation when one of the hosts, Richard Greene, to whom I had never listened, stood up in the introductory panel and said words to the effect that in order to stop the crimes that are ongoing and that are stealing our country away from us, we must confront and expose 9/11 as a false flag operation. I leapt to my feet and applauded wildly. I was joined by several others. I don't think he was prepared for the response his statement got, and he rapidly set up an impromptu session to show Zeitgeist, Part II and hold a discussion about the issue tonight.

Marine Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford Protests "Truth = Terror" Smear

Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford (USMC, Ret) of Pilots for 9/11 Truth will be my guest on Dynamic Duo tomorrow, Thursday 11/15, 4-6 pm CT on network 4.

Here is his letter protesting the misleading presentation made to the Homeland Security Subcommittee by Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center: :

[from Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford]

I am writing to protest the testimony and Powerpoint presentation by Mr. Mark Weitzman before the committee in which he conflated the presence of sites on the internet that question the U. S. Government-provided explanations for 9/11 with those you identify as associated with terrorism and Islamic extremism.

You very pointedly reference the site established by architects and engineers as an exemplar of such a site. In doing so, you have tarred with a very broad brush thousands of patriotic American citizens who have legitimate questions that have gone unanswered about events of that day and the Official Conspiracy Theory of the 19 alleged hijackers used to explain them.
