9/11: An Open Letter to Anthony Lawson about “Absurdities”

9/11: An Open Letter to Anthony Lawson about “Absurdities”

Re: “9/11: The Absurdity of the No-Planes-in-New-York Theory”



Just for the record, you and I have gone round and round over this for years–where you have saved up every exchange we ever had so you could cull them for quotes taken out of context, exaggerate my positions, and suppress information about my actual views. As an example, you claim I have a lot of articles with similar names, but you doesn’t actually cite the most important among them,

“New Proof of Video Fakery on 9/11″

Moreover, you love to shade the truth. Joe Keith, for example, actually designed the shaker system for Boeing, which is used to determine when a plane is going to come apart in flight. You suppress the information that the speed of the plane in the videos (of 560 mph) appears to have been a lapse by using its cruising speed at 35,000 feet as if it could be attained at 700-1,000 feet as well, where the air is three times as dense and the turbines cannot suck the air through them, which causes them to function as brakes.

Nor do you mention that Pilots for 9/11 Truth has confirmed that this was an aerodynamically impossible speed for a Boeing 767, where you loves to talk about “special planes”. But no matter how “special”, no plane could have entered the building in violation of Newton’s laws. A real plane would have crumpled, its wings and tail broken off, while seats, bodies, and luggage fell to the ground. The engines would have made it into the building, but not most of the rest of a highly fragile aluminum “flying beer can”.

Your claims are preposterous. An obvious study to have cited, were you actually an honest broker, would have been Pilots’ study,

“9/11: Speeds Reported For World Trade Center Attack Aircraft Analyzed”

You know better than you pretend, where my most recent articles were published at Veterans Today, which apparently enraged you. I do not understand your proprietary interest in all this, but it clearly exists–and his arguments, when properly understood and placed in context minus the exaggerations and distortions–are without merit. See, for example,

But most of all, “9/11 Intercepted” from Pilots for 9/11 Truth, which shows that a Boeing 767 would have been unmanageable and fallen apart at the speed shown in those videos.

How many of these studies have you actually read, Anthony? Because they provide a framework and background for understanding video fakery:

Elias Davidsson, “There is no evidence that Muslims committed the crime of 9/11″

David Ray Griffin, “Phone Calls from the 9/11 Airliners”

“Flight 11″ approaching the North Tower

Leslie Raphael, “Jules Naudet’s 9/11 Film was Staged”

Jim Fetzer, “New Proof of Video Fakery on 9/11″

Killtown, What didn’t happen at Shanksville

Your article and video are full of partial evidence and half-truths, which I fear is a form of deliberate misinformation. The number of those who would have have to be “in on it” regarding the Naudet video, for example, is grossly exaggerated. Most of those involved in something like this have no idea that what they are doing is not on “the up and up”.

I notice you do not mention a study by Leslie Raphael, “Jules Naudet’s 9/11 Film was Staged”, which supports the opposite conclusion, where I have already explained to you why it was important that the shot be OUT OF FOCUS to not give away the missing plane. Something was flying by, but it does not appear to have been a Boeing 767.

Your reliance upon the Eric Salter study is especially revealing. Whether what Salter is alleged to have found is 8% or even 18% deceleration, that is not going to explain why it the plane’s velocity did not fall to zero. The plane was intersecting with eight (8) floors of steel trusses connected to the core columns at one end and the external support columns at the other, which, of course, were also filled with 4-8″ of concrete, which, at 208′ x 208′, represents an acre of concrete apiece.

As I explain in “More Proof of 9/11 Duplicity” (with a diagram), they would have created enormous horizontal resistance. The windows were only 18″ wide and the support columns were a meter apart. There were no windows between floors, so most of the facade was steel, which is far more dense than aluminum. The video is a fantasy.

As I have challenged you before without receiving any response, how would it be possible for the plane–in both Hezarkhani and Faribanks’ videos–to pass through their own length into the building in the same number of frames they pass through their own length in air? This is a perfect example of how you skip over and exclude evidence you don’t like.

That result proves that the videos are fake (because it would be impossible unless those 500,000 ton buildings provided no more resistance to the plane’s trajectory than air) but also demonstrates that there was no deceleration and that Stalter’s study is wrong. And of course you ignore that it was necessary to fake the plane

(1) to insure that it actually hit the building, which many members of Pilots were unable to accomplish with repeated trials;

(2) that it penetrate completely inside of it in order to create the false impression of a cause for the buildings’ collapse; and,

(3) only then “exploded”, which had to be precisely coordinated in time to account for the explosions in the sub-basements.

Those occurred 14 and 17 second BEFORE reverberations from those alleged impacts, as I have explained in “Seven Questions about 9/11″ and “9/11: Seismic Proof + Video Fakery = Inside Job”, in case you missed it, which is easily accessible and includes the following data table:

Which raises obvious questions about what you think you is doing here and why you commit so many straw man, special pleading, and ad hominem arguments. But on this point we can agree: There certainly is a lot of disinformation out there!

  1. I thought this quote was really fitting “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” – Thomas Jefferson

  2. Do you emotions if I quotation a great offer of one’s content articles or assessments as lengthy as I offer credit score ranking and means back again even now once more for your blog? My site on the net is inside the precise exact very same spot of wish as yours and my folks would undoubtedly benefit from some making use of the particulars you offer here. be sure you permit me know if this okay with you. Thanks! w ayshe16akd u.. amersom.AUG.

  3. Children, Children take some time out and cool down.

    You’re all just speculating. Let’s look at a bullet. When it hits an object it decelerates, and when all is done, you find the whole entire intact but deformed bullet. You can’t claim it was a bullet with bullet wings and bullet rudder and bullet horizontal stabilizers and then when asked where is the bullet, you say “Well what do you expect, an airplane is mostly air and it just vaporized on impact!” You can’t have it both ways.

    Let’s instead take on the facts as we know them rather than argue over guesses and uneducated hypotheses.

    The Facts are:

    — There were explosions in the basements of those towers >BEFORE< the real or fake aircraft impacts.

    — In the history of buildings made of Concrete and Steel There has never been any buildings that self-demolished because of fire alone, much less turn almost completely into powdered dust in mid air, before even hitting the ground.

    — The Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) says that fires alone were responsible for the demolition and the aircrafts hitting the buildings are responsible for the start of the fires. Since that is the OCT, by default we can be fairly certain that fires did not do it, and the alleged Boeing aircrafts did not hit the buildings, although some other aircraft might have.

    — On that very day there were Israeli agents driving parking and exploding car bombs all over the city of New York. By chance we heard of a few, so we can confidently guess that there must have been dozens more that never got reported.

    — We were told that many cell phone calls were made from the airplanes, but then six years later the FBI admitted in a court that those Cell-Phone call claims were all lies. So who made the Phone Calls? Where the phone callers fake or the phone call receivers fake, or both? The phone calls were made to prove that the alleged airplanes where in fact in the air and they did in fact hit the buildings. So we can be certain that whatever hit the buildings, if any, was not the alleged commercial Boeing aircrafts.

    — The Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) says that 19 cave men trained in the desert caves of Afghanistan came to US, did a "Suicide Hijacking" and called the United States Airforce and told them to stand down for the duration of their supposed attacks. Then after having killed themselves, many of these cave men, miraculously came back to life a few weeks later! Since that is the OCT, we can be certain that the alleged 19 cave men or hijackings or the alleged airplanes were not involved in this 911 magic show.

    — Many of the High officials of the US government including those commanding the airforce, NORAD, FAA, and so on were later praised for a job well done! What job? Letting the alleged airplanes get through all the layers of US defenses and even going out of their way to help make the event take place??

    These are the Facts, everything else is guess work. We know that The Official Conspiracy Theory claims are 100% lies and at times they are the opposite of the truth. We know that Israelis where intimately involved in the entire 911 incident from planning to execution to the cover up.

    So rather than squabbling over what color airplane hit which building, why don't you all stick to the facts and stay away from the details that are at this time UNKNOWN to us all. We should demand to get some kind of real investigation done by some honest third party, such as several engineers and architects and criminal investigators from Iran. Let some group of investigators selected by an honest man such as Ahmadinejad or Chavez come to America and investigate this crime to find the fine details. Until then, lets stick to the facts and away from the speculation business. Speculation is okay, but keep reminding yourselves that you are now Speculating and stay away from believing your own speculations, as if they were proven facts.

    As a reminder the facts are:

    —- For the most part, the Israeli's and many American Jews planed and carried out the 911 attacks in the US.

    —- All of what you have been told as the official story of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust are Lies and in most cases they are the opposite of the truth. In fact the Jews were deliberately and systematically killing everyone else, and not the other way around. 911 was their 21st century way of following in that age old tradition of starting wars that only benefit them and kill and maim everyone else.

    —- Most of what has been told to you as "Historical Facts" are lies. That includes all the religions: Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and all the rest of them. Don't be gullible. Religious Gullibility is the "Gateway Drug" for the population and it is used to make the people more prone to believe other Official Conspiracy Lies.

  4. In reply to Joe:

    Joe’s Law is just your personal little sound bite, but has nothing whatsoever to do with science. If you cared at all about science, Joe, you would have discussed the effects of Kinetic Energy, which explains how a smaller less massive object can have an increasing power to penetrate a larger more massive object as its velocity is increased.

    Your and Fetzer’s little sound bite regarding the way “the plane takes the same number of frames to fly its own length through thin air as it does to fly through the steel and concrete tower, thus violating Newton’s first and second laws of motion,” completely omits the effect of Kinetic Energy. You guys also don’t provide any calculations to back up your claims that Newton’s laws are violated.

    You also forget to mention the fact that the tower is mostly empty air and the plane is passing through MOSTLY EMPTY AIR when it enters the tower and only a relatively tiny bit of concrete and steel.

    But people have already explained this over and over again and you guys just keep pretending that you have never heard of this little thing called Kinetic Energy.

    If you guys were at all interested in the truth, you would be taking an academic, scholarly approach and you would provide data and calculations to back up your bull shit claims. But you can’t. Because your claims are…well…bull shit.

    • Keenan, I have responded to this. Do you understand Newton’s laws? The building posed massive resistance. (Take a look at the diagram showing it impacting with eight (8) floors consisting of steel trusses filled with 4-8″ of concrete, which represented enormous HORIZONTAL resistance.) The plane does not even slow down. You like to compare it with a bullet, when there is no basis for such a comparison. A bullet is a small, dense object. An airplane is a large, empty shell. I’ve translated this into the language of kinetic energy, which is simply energy (or mass) in motion. The plane could not possibly have passed through those eight floors without a collision taking place in which the plane would have crumpled, its wings and tail broken off, and bodies, seats, and luggage fallen to the ground. That did not happen. You not only have not refuted “Joe’s Law” but don’t even seem to understand why it is important. Go back and reread my post about kinetic energy, because your lack of understanding of classical mechanics is tedious and boring.

  5. ( – Since our article on WTC Aircraft Speed Analysis was written, more evidence has been gathered to reflect the research provided by Pilots For 9/11 Truth and in the film “9/11: World Trade Center Attack”. A more thorough understanding and explanation of why V speeds are established based on wind tunnel tests performed by the manufacturer is also available virtually making the need to gather documents from Boeing based on wind tunnel testing, moot. We already have their results of such tests in the form of the V Speeds they have established through wind tunnel testing required by definition as outlined in the Illustrated Guide To Aerodynamics and all other related text.

    The Argument – Reported speeds/control for the reported aircraft claimed –
    “The Elephant In The Room”

    The Evidence

    Data –

    Boeing – Boeing spokeswoman Leslie Hazzard in this recording saying 500+ mph at 700 feet is impossible.

    (Interviewer asks -) “So there’s no way the aircraft could be going 500 mph at [700 ft] altitude then?”

    Boeing Spokesperson – (Laughs) “Not a chance…”

    Limits set by the
    manufacturer based on flight/wind tunnel testing


    The above is for a 767, reduce the speeds by 10 knots for a 757.

    The speeds are based on the weight ranges in the A1NM Type Certificate data sheet which also give an altitude range.

    VD = 420 KCAS to 17,854 ft/.91M above 23,000 ft, linear variation between these points.

    The above diagram is good from sea level, up to almost 18,000 feet. Above that, the Vg diagram moves to the left. In other words, structural failure speeds are less in terms of Indicated at higher altitudes. Real pilots can see this as they climb. The Vmo indicator (Barber pole) actually moves to a lower airspeed once you climb above the crossover altitude. The reason for this is the aircraft is no longer limited by raw dynamic pressure, rather it is now becoming limited by the effects of Mach (both drag related, which is why EAS is calculated using Mach number and good to above Mach 2). A good explanation of this is shown here.…_40_vmo_mmo.htm

The organization has also analyzed Flight Data provided by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for the Pentagon Attack and the events in Shanksville, PA. The data does not support the government story. The NTSB/FBI refuse to comment. Pilots For 9/11 Truth do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, there is a growing mountain of conflicting information and data in which government agencies and officials refuse to acknowledge. Pilots For 9/11 Truth Core member list continues to grow. The need for a new investigation has never been more apparent. for full member list. to join.

    • can’t we rent some simulator time?

      are we all totally broke, dependent on microsoft programs which tell us the control surfaces are not designed for such flight?

      my own list of pilots well exceeds this…along with our oft published tests on the b52

      however…..this is all an exercise in curiousity, no more

      none of it leads to prosecution, executions for Bush and his thousands of little helpers, the overthrow of Israel’s kabal and bringing the dead back to life


  6. Gordon,

    You again have refused to answer any of my questions. Are you taking lessons from Fetzer?

    You make a series of incoherent insults and criticisms about me and my writing and my website without citing anything specific. You have completely lost me regarding your critique of my web site. You mentioned Oklahoma City and that I should “go back to OK City…and build from there”. Huh? What the heck are you talking about? Do you know how to make a coherent point?

    You really seem like you have been drinking heavily or something. I’m having a hard time understanding what you point is.

    Instead of answering any of my questions yet again, you instead spew a series of insults, including:

    Your writing is bizarre
    You are harder than hell to understand and communicate with….
    and are not very effective at either science or police work
    Your forte is circular rhetoric

    and provide no specific examples for any of theses insults/criticisms

    My respect for you, Gordon, just dropped a few notches here today. I seriously hope that sometime in the near future you will send me an apology and let me know that these embarrassing comments of yours today were due to your being very inebriated or something and that you are not normally this imbecile-sounding.

    • Wow. The first thing that comes to mind is the disconnect between the good quality of writing of the articles I have read on VT over the last couple of years and your convoluted, inarticulate comments on this thread. Strange…

      Your post is a kind of rambling all over the place. But I’ll address a few of your points:

      “…perhaps the only professional around…me”

      Are you claiming to be the only professional in this movement?

      “Years ago, one of the top named guys, a hero to you, was identified as assigned to 9/11 truth by the DEA. He is a HUGE nanothermite supporter.”

      Sounds like you are making lots of assumptions about my beliefs regarding who my heros are and my views on nanothermite. Can’t you name names here?

      You may be surprised, then, to discover that I believe that A&E911T has been heavily infiltrated and that I am skeptical of the nanothermite promoters.

      I would like to know how do you determine someones credibility, and is fact checking and verification of claims important to you? Does the scientific method and the peer review process have any validity to you at all? When do you require people to back up their claims with data and calculations?

      • Keenan, you are taking for granted that I am wrong about various points, when the evidence suggests that you are the one who is wrong. Even if you were right about Joe Keith, his argument is what matters. And you have never said a word about that, so far as I am aware. So I think you need to give more thought to “Joe’s Law”, which I have posted more than once in this thread.

  7. Fetzer, you are amazingly dishonest. You respond by again asking me yet again to propose an argument, and ignore the argument I just posed to you yet again for the nth time regarding Kinetic Energy. This is getting really exhaustive, Jim.

    I am saving your quote for posterity:
    “I have refuted every argument you have produced against me. And if that is not the case, then show it by reproducing the argument you think I have not refuted. It appears to me that you are a fraud. Either put up or shut up.”

    You are too funny. How can you have refuted every argument I have produced when you have not addressed a SINGLE argument I have produced?






    Didn’t see that Jim? Alright, here it is again:











    What do I have to do to get you to address this principle, Jim? Do I have to offer you money? How about $100. If I give you $100 will you address the issue of KINETIC ENERGY regarding the ability of one object to penetrate another object, specifically the ability of the plane to impact the WTC tower?

    So, what will it take, Jim? $100? $1000? What is your price?

    Actually, never mind. I’m too exhausted to play this game with you, Jim. I’m done wasting my time with someone who is that stubbornly dishonest because I already know what kind of BS response you will give, and it will not include the words “kinetic energy” anywhere in the entire comment, I am sure of it. So, I’m putting you on ignore, Jim.

    At this point, if anyone here ever sees Jim actually honestly address any of my arguments that I have posed to him on this thread then please let me know. You can email me through my wordpress handle linked to my name. I will certainly not hold my breath or waste anymore time on this thread waiting for that to happen.

    • How many times do I have to explain to you the design of the Twin Towers. Newton formulated three laws of motion which pertain to kinetic energy, in case you haven’t noticed. All three are violated by the image seen in the plane. I have explained this many times. I cannot imaging how anyone who has read this thread could have failed to notice that the argument about equal distance/equal times equals equal speed concerns mass in motion. That the plane passes through its own length into the building in the same number of frames it passes through its own length in air proves fakery in two ways: that would be impossible unless the building provides no more resistance to the path of a plane in flight than air; and it also proves no deceleration (or loss in kinetic energy), where the velocity of the plane should have fallen to zero (for most of its mass), while some parts would have passed into the building. But there was no loss in kinetic energy: no crumpling, no loss of wings or tail, no bodies, seats, or luggage falling to the ground. It simply passes into this massive building with the same momentum it passes through air. I guess you don’t understand the relationships between mass and velocity and resistance. Go back to the diagram showing that the plane would have intersected with eight (8) floors consisting of steel trusses filled with 4-8″ of concrete (or an acre of concrete apiece). There were eight of them. What would happen if a plane in flight were to intersect with just one of them? I am afraid you have really not thought this through. I agree it’s time for you to give it a rest. I will give you my address so you can send the check.

    • Oh Keenan
      REality check
      A plane compared to a WTC tower equals a baseball compared to a Humvee.
      Do the math.
      Kinetic energy?
      You are saying the buildings themselves were dropped?
      Learn the damned language.

      • Oh Gordon
        REality check
        A bullet to your body equals a baseball compared to a Humvee.
        Do the math.
        Kinetic energy?
        You are saying your body itself was dropped? Obviously such a small bullet could never penetrate through your body which is at least a hundred times the mass of the bullet.
        Learn the damned language.

        • Keenan, Gordon will respond, but I think you are making a blunder in comparing small, dense objects like bullets to large, flimsy objects like airplanes. A Boeing 767 could no more penetrate completely into a massive building of the design of a Twin Tower any more than a car could pass through a massive tree. Both would collide and break apart, as you no doubt are aware in the case of car crashes. Planes hitting buildings are about as fragile as cars hitting trees, which is a far more appropriate analogy than your comparison with small bullets.

  8. Keenan,
    I have two articles today, Lawson’s piece in rense and Fetzers piece here today.
    One is self serving and whiney and the other is an intelligent discussion of conspiracy.
    Both have self publishing rights at VT, one choose to demand i remove writers from our list who disagreed with him, one did not.
    My choice is easy, i censor because someone pisses or moans or i keep alive free discussion.

    • Sure, I can respect that. But what happens when someone writing an article on Veterans Today states a provably false claim, and then refuses to retract it, as in the case of Fetzer’s claims about the so-called “shaker system” for Boeing aircraft? And this is not the only instance when Fetzer made a provably false claim on VT. Does it matter to you what the truth is? Responsible journalism is about verification and fact checking, and retracting false statements after they have been proven to be false.

      I’m just wondering about the standards here at VT are regarding accuracy and reliability.

      Also, Gordon, would you describe Fetzer’s arguments supporting his no-planes-in-New-York theory as scientific and fact based? Do you feel he takes a scholarly approach using evidence and proper methodology, as should be expected by an academic?

      Does it bother you when Fetzer engages in disiformation-style tactics of misdirection, ignoring and avoiding arguments and facts that dispute his claims while engaging in name-calling and subject shifting, and other similar tactics?

      Can you honestly say after reading through this thread that Jim Fetzer has behaved fairly and maturely and scholarly in they way he responded to facts and arguments other people have presented that disproved his claims, like a responsible journalist or academic would?

      • Keenan, I know Joe Keith. He has been a very open and honest guy. His argument is good as gold, even if he were a bar tender. I am stunned that you allow yourself to be taken in by Anthony’s rubbish. I have an extensive background in scientific reasoning, in critical thinking, and in logic, subjects I taught at various universities during my 35-year career. What makes you think that anything that I have published is “psudo-scientific”? The fact that you cannot understand something I write does not show that I am wrong. I have explained that those who deny the conclusion of video fakery are either unfamiliar with the evidence or cognitively impaired. I am formulating an hypothesis about you, Keenan. Why don’t you explain what my arguments are (so I know you understand them) and then explain what I have wrong? Kindly do that. Because otherwise you are parroting Anthony’s views, which I have refuted again and again and again.

        P.S. I have written to Joe. If he tells me I have something wrong, I will let you know. But arguments have to be assessed on their own merits, where the issue you and Anthony seem to care so much about does not turn a fake plane into a real plane! Get serious. OK?

        • Jim, the fact that you have an “extensive background in scientific reasoning” only lends further support to the conclusion that an increasing number of people have that you are knowingly and willingly engaging in obfuscation and disinformation around the idea of no-planes-in-New-York. It shows that you most certainly know the difference between a scholarly approach to a scientific problem versus an illogical and obfuscatory approach. And yet you persist in the latter, no matter how many times people have exposed your false claims.

          At this point, the only people who take your false pseudo-scientific claims and arguments seriously are those who are illiterate in science and logic or can’t be bothered to understand the difference between real science and pseudo-scientific clever sound bites.

          I have already presented several arguments and facts earlier in this thread based on physics that disputes your claims, and you have steadfastly refused each time to address them, and instead engaged in subject shifting and repetition of your false claims over and over again, apparently believing that you can fool at least some people into thinking that if you repeat something over and over again it makes it true.

          Instead of addressing specifically the principle of Kinetic Energy, for example, which determines the ability of one object to penetrate another object, you instead purposely misdirect and obfuscate by citing general laws of Newton that do not address the question, and refuse to provide any data or calculations to back up your claims that the plane couldn’t have penetrated the building, as you have been asked repeatedly to do.

          And you behave this way with every fact and argument presented to you that challenges your false claims.

          “Why don’t you explain what my argument are (so I know you understand them) and then explain what I have wrong?”

          Anyone who has read this entire thread from beginning to end can clearly see that I have already done that over and over again, and each and every time you respond with the same tactics of misdirection, obfuscation, and avoidance.

          If you are sincere, you would go back and address the questions and facts and arguments I have already presented to you. Asking me to explain what you have wrong when you know I have already done that is obviously not a sincere request, it is more attempts at distraction and avoidance.

          Any honest person with a good understanding of science and logic can see right through you, Jim. Your crap arguments and methods are designed to hoodwink people who are not so good at science and logic.

          You know what to do if you want people to take you seriously. I don’t need to keep repeating it.

          Really, you should be ashamed of yourself.

      • Roberts?
        Were you there?
        Did you see a plane going fast as a bullet between buildings, speeds Boeing says its plane is incapable of.
        If Lawson is right and someone built special planes, super strong, a feat that took boeing 3 years on the B 52, who did it and how were they silenced?
        ..and you wonder why I think I am surrounded by morons.

        • Gordon, could you please address the questions I asked you? Why did you ignore them?

          • Your discourse is disjointed and incoherent at times. Fetzer is making a case that video was falsified. Lawson says the planes themselves were falsified.
            Which is easier, having Israeli film teams all over manhattan, a given fact, produce phony films or building impossible planes as Lawson states?
            Did you ask this question?
            This is the real question, ask it and you get an answer.
            I have seen no conclusive proof planes hit the Pentagon or anywhere else. I have seen proof that Israeli film teams were taking HD digital video from multiple locations to be released for some purpose.
            I also have seen proof that NO aircraft contributed in any way to significant damage done on 9/11.
            Why, then, do some want to talk aircraft they have never seen, video never properly vetted when scientific proof supposedly proves planes were not involved?
            Get smarter, ask the right questions, up your game.
            If Fetzer is wrong, then YOU explain how and why.
            If Lawson is right and special planes were built, prove it also.
            I am drowning in bullshit here or would if i paid any fargin attention to time wasters.
            What are the real questions, how are the guilty to be caught and punished and who is protecting the guilty?
            Thus far, the 9/11 truth movement, some aspects of it at least, are working 24 hours a day to protect those responsible for 9/11.
            My assumption, well, read the fargin article.
            I don’t see it being “debunked”
            Do your best….get some help from the other kids at your school if you need to.

          • OK, looked at your website.
            Where the hell do I start. Your writing is bizarre….but your own. good
            You start on solid ground, Oklahoma City. Good
            You are harder than hell to understand and communicate with….
            and are not very effective at either science or police work..something you share with both fetzer and lawson
            if you 3 are all we have, we are totally screwed.
            go back to OK City…and build from there. That was a good start or at least from what I understand.
            Analysis is a profession, not a game.
            Your forte is circular rhetoric, something all of us can play, some extremely well.
            We just aren’t so bored we care to engage in it.
