‘Unmasked’ Reviewed

David Ray Griffin has written another book on 9/11, this time with co-author Elizabeth Woodworth, 9/11 Unmasked, ISBN 978-1-62371-974-6.

According to its subtitle, 9/11 Unmasked is “an international review panel investigation.” The IRP is composed of 23 persons from a broad range of fields, and several nations, all well versed on 9/11.

The book is organized around specific questionable claims of the official government account of the events of 2001-09-11. Each dubious claim is the topic of exactly one chapter. The assertions themselves are refuted in a standard format:

The Official Account: … .

The Best Evidence: … .

Conclusion: … .

Best Evidence in each chapter refutes a claim of The Official Account.

Specific assertions of The Official Account were chosen for refutation from the many available by the criterion that 85 percent or more IRP members, acting independently, judged it to warrant inclusion.

Some chapters, for example Chapter 1, are as short as one-half page. Others require one whole page. Most take up several pages.

9/11 Unmasked  is not uninterrupted easy reading! Many chapters require slow and careful attention to get right. Yet overall it is a new approach — and a good one — to have a consensus analysis of points of 9/11 evidence that prove the official account is bogus.

Building 7

An email came in the other day, directed at those like Bruce and me who try to get the word out about the phoniness of the official government/media account of the mass murders of September 11, 2001. It reads:

–   –   –

When I ask people, what made them wake up, most say it was Building 7.  The fact that Building 7 is the one thing the crooks are censoring out of the news indicates it is their Achilles Heel.  When dealing with the public, we should focus on Building 7 because it is the one thing the controlled press cannot explain away. When people see that any mention of Building 7 has been censored out of TV stations, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, movies, etc, they start to see the enormity of the control system.

Can’t speak for others, but I’ve found that over the past few years just sticking to verifiable scientific facts and a few (3) key videos and maintaining consistence of message has done more than any arguing with trolls has with respect to spreading the message. Particularly now that a good percentage of the public now have doubts/questions regarding the official narrative. Just provide a consistent messageand have faith that people will discern truth from BS on their own.

If someone wishes to be disingenuous, dishonest, or just plain ignorant, fine … that’s their right, but not going to promote that on a platform if I have say. If someone drops in as a naysayer or pushes obvious disinformation … I just block them.

2 cents.

Thanks,

I hope Ken is right that “a good percentage of the public” doubts or questions the official narrative.  

It is inaccurate, though, to say the collapse of Building 7 — the third skyscraper at the World Trade Center to collapse on September 11, 2001 — is “the one thing the crooks are censoring out of the news.” In reality, the news media are censoring just about everything having to do with the mega-atrocity of September 11, 2001, before, during, and after that day. 

Note: The three links Ken recommends range from six minutes to an hour and a half in length. There’s nothing new in them, and there’s repetition, but they serve as an introduction that may pique people’s curiosity.

Lying Liars Lie

The headline above Lauren R. Stevens’ refreshing article in today’s Berkshire Eagle* reads, “The difficult job of confronting casual liars.”** Please click here to read.

It begins: “The greasy, oily bilge of the S.S. America is flooded with lies. The moral engine of the republic has quit and the ship is adrift.”

More on the subject, and on this wonderful opinion piece, another day.

*The Berkshire Eagle is the daily newspaper in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the second-to-last town on our walk from Provincetown last spring to call attention to the impossible-to-count lies in official accounts of the mass murders of September 11, 2001, and the need for a real investigation.

** In the Eagle online, the headline is “The difficult job of confronting all the casual liars.”

Sane

For some truth cutting through supermazes of disinformation, tune in to this interview featuring Massachusetts’ own Edward Curtin for Philip Farruggio’s podcast “It’s the Empire, Stupid.” Set aside an hour and a quarter or so and make yourself comfortable, but don’t expect any Massachusetts accents.

If you saw and loved the movies “Network” (1976), “Being There” (1979) and “The Truman Show” (1998), so much the better. If you haven’t, please do sometime.

We missed Curtin on our walk last spring west from Provincetown to call attention to the miriad falsehoods in the cloak of official narratives about the September 11, 2001, mass murders and demand a real investigation into that mega-atrocity.

Enjoy.

Election Day Wait

Bruce and I * met for brunch today and among other topics discussed the race for  Berkshire County District Attorney, in which we’re supporting different candidates.

We ate at a downtown restaurant in Pittsfield, the second-to-last town on our walk last spring across Massachusetts from Provincetown.

Apologies to readers for gaps in this sometimes daily blog which, like the walk, was begun to call attention to the need for a real investigation into the mass murders of September 11, 2001, which kicked off the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and fueled several more.

You may know that the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry filed a Grand Jury Petition with the United States Attorney for Southern New York last April, and amended it in July, demanding that a special grand jury investigate evidence the Committee supplied into into specific federal crimes. Scroll down if you don’t, or to refresh your memory.

Polls close in an hour and a half.

Got an Hour?

For a 58-minute presentation on the Petition to the Justice Department (through the office of the United States District Attorney for Southern New York) demanding a federal Grand Jury investigation of the crimes of September 11, 2001, issued last April and amended in July, click here. Several members of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry speak.

At the same link there’s a separate eight-minute introduction to the Lawyers’ Committee’s Petition by actor Ed Asner and a mention by him of author David Ray Griffin, whose 2004 book The New Pearl Harbor, helped kick off the 9/11 truth movement.

WARNING: Asner will hit you up for money.

RECOMMENDATION: Give generously.

‘Be It Resolved . . .’

We received an email yesterday from the 9/11 Truth Action Project, tagged “NEWS FLASH.”

HEADLINE: “The U.S. Senate Calls for Declassification of ALL 9/11 Documents: Senate Resolution 610 Adopted Without Objection

FIRST PARAGRAPH: “At the end of September 2018, the United States Senate called for declassification of all ‘documents related to the events of September 11, 2001’ and ‘that the survivors, the families of the victims, and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States.’ While non-binding, this sense-of-the-Senate resolution (S. Res, 610) places the United States Senate firmly in the position of supporting the call that many in the 9/11 Truth Movement have sought for years.”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, sponsored the measure, which was cosponsored by Senators Cornyn of Texas, Schumer and Gillibrand of New York, Murphy of Connecticut, Menendez and Booker of New Jersey, Markey of Massachusetts, Rubio of Florida, and Sanders of Vermont.

The New York Times and the Washington Post did not report on the Sept. 26 event, nor did The Associated Press. The Hartford Courant, in Blumenthal’s own state, had related stories in April and July, here and here.

What do Congressional resolutions mean? For a couple of Wikipedia explanations, click here and here.

For the full TAP release, click here. For an early and partial draft of the resolution, click here.

Blumenthal was first elected to the Senate in 2010. Previously, he served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut from 1977 to 1981. He served successively as a Connecticut state representative and a state senator from 1985 to 1991, and as Connecticut’s attorney general from 1991 to 2011.

Glad Tidings

Packed houses in Pittsfield and Worcester were buoyed yesterday as the Presiding Bishop of this country’s Episcopal Church, Michael B. Curry, a.k.a. the Wedding Preacher since his sermon at the Royal wedding last May, celebrated the power of love. Read about the Pittsfield event here.

Bruce and I were all but oblivious to Henry and Meghan’s nuptials on our walk across Massachusetts last spring.* We rarely flipped on the TV sets in our motel rooms before heading out for supper.

We found Worcesterites relatively enlightened regarding “9/11” compared to other Bay Staters along Routes 6, 6A and 9 — not that the Telegram & Gazette, an alma mater of mine, gives in a thought to anything but the official accounts (more on that another day).

At one point yesterday in the ample sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church on Pittsfield’s Fenn Street, the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry referred to one of the late Jimi Hendrix’s mantras, that “when the power of love overcomes the love of power, then we shall know peace.” He was quick to note, however, that British Prime Minister William Gladstone said it first, roughly the same way, and that Gladstone’s assertion was founded on plenty of passages in the Bible.

Gladstone’s words popularized by Hendrix didn’t make it into Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, but others worth remembering in the pursuit of 9/11 truth did.**

A fragment of the concluding hymn filling the Methodist church (after Curry had left for Worcester) lent itself to the same pursuit: ” … lead us to the truth that frees.”

The bishop’s overall message in Pittsfield and Worcester as at the wedding in May was that “love is the way, love is the only way.” Yesterday it included readings from Paul’s 2nd Letter to the Corinthians 5 and the Gospel According to John.

For audio/video of the Pittsfield event, click here. For the same at the Hanover Theater in Worcester, click here.

It may not be far-fetched to think that Curry, currently based in Manhattan, doesn’t swallow whole the government/media accounts of the September 2001 attacks.

* between April 13 and May 14 to raise awareness about the impossibility of the government and media accounts of the mass murders of September 11, 2001

** “Justice delayed is justice denied.” (Attributed) “You cannot fight against the future. Time is on our side.” (1866) “I have always regarded [the United States] Constitution as the most remarkable work known to me in modern times to have been produced by modern intellect, at a single stroke (so to speak), in its application to political affairs.” (1887)

Close at Counter …*

Late last month in my bookstare, / I met a book that wasn’t there. / It wasn’t there again today. / I wish that book would go away **

Maybe that’s what the people who determine what’s fit to read intend in this land of the free and home of the brave.

“David Ray WHO??” (Peering over a stack of Fear, by the semiofficial Bob Woodward, and another stack of a competing Trump White House exposé by a lesser-known but serviceable writer.)

“Griffin.”

“Griffin?”

“Yes, G-R-I-F-F-I-N. It’s his 10th book on the subject, this one co-authored by Elizabeth Woodworth.”

“Title again?”

9/11 Unmasked. The subtitle is ‘An International Review Panel’s Investigation.'”

“Thanks.” (Looking into a screen.) “Hmm, looks like it’s pending.”

“Pending?”

To get a copy, or more than one, of 9/11 Unmasked by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth fastest and with least fuss, call the publisher at 1-800-238-LINK or 1-413-582-7054 with credit card info at hand. Cost, $20 a copy plus shipping and tax. Depending on how far from Northampton, Massachusetts, you live, it could be in your hands within a day or two. More another day on why this direct route is best.

From promotional squib:

9/11 Unmasked is the result of a six-year investigation by an international review panel, which has provided 51 points, illustrating the problematic status of all the major claims in the official account of the 9/11 attacks, some of which are obviously false. Most dramatically, the official account of the destruction of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7 could not possibly be true, unless the laws of physics were suspended that day. But other claims made by the official account–including the claims that the 9/11 planes were taken over by al-Qaeda hijackers, that one of those hijackers flew his plane into the Pentagon, and that passengers on the planes telephoned people on the ground–are demonstrably false.

“The book reports only points about which the panel reached consensus by using the ‘best-evidence’ consensus model employed in medical research. The panel is composed of experts about 9/11 from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, and jurisprudence.”

Tough Book to Get

For Edward Curtin’s third post on how good a book 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth is and how difficult it is for some people to get a copy, click here.

Curtin employs a little sarcasm to get across his disappointment with the process of ordering a copy through the online retailer Amazon.

The post is titled: “The Suppression of Truth in the Land of Lies: An Oxymoron.”
