Washington D.C. Screening of "9/11: Press For Truth" - 9/11/06

I attended the 7:00pm screening of "9/11: Press for Truth" at Landmark's E Street Cinema in DC. Although there were approximately 40 others in the audience, I was disappointed that more young people didn't turn out to support the movement. My initial reaction to "Press for Truth" was that of disappointment: there were too many core components left out of the film that implicate the government through MIHOP. Among the gaps: wargames, controlled demolition of the towers, the Mineta testimony, and insider trading. However, as my girlfriend and I discussed the scenes on our way home, I realized that "Press for Truth" is a perfect film for fence-sitters and those unfamiliar with 9/11 Truth.

The genius of "Press for Truth", what set it apart from other 9/11 Truth documentaries, is the raw emotion the film generates and demands from its audience. Unlike Loose Change, we see the human response to 9/11 in the form of the 'Jersey Girls'. We emphasize with the betrayal they received from the 9/11 Commission they helped create. Most importantly, they show that a group of ordinary, dedicated civilians can make a difference. Additionally, the incorporation of Paul Thompson's "9/11 Timeline" highlighted the money trail from the Pakistani ISI to the hijackers and proved to be particularly damning.
