9/11 and the crisis on the left

An elite corps of left-wing luminaries is moving to try to stem the influence of the 9/11 truth movement with the time-honored mantra that the "conspiracy theory" is drawing off too much energy that should be used for real leftist concerns.

Following in the footsteps of Noam Chomsky (see below) are Christopher Hayes, writing in the Nation, and Alexander Cockburn. All three make the same argument.

As the Democrats maneuver to decide what to do in Washington, we can expect to hear an increasing cacaphony of this kind of stuff. The aim: head off new investigations of the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks and the anthrax attacks.

The problem for Chomsky et al are these points: more than a third of Americans think 9/11 was an "inside job"; more than half think there is a coverup of important facts concerning 9/11; and more than 57 percent are very concerned by intrusive post-9/11 surveillance laws and edicts.

Though I know of no poll concerning the beliefs of intellectuals concerning 9/11, I daresay the percentage of those who are convinced of conspiracy is far higher than the 36 per cent reported by a Scripps-Howard poll for the public at large.

So the hidden hand of the left, as represented by these leftwing icons, has the troublesome task of overcoming thes impressive political realities.

It should be noted that there was a core group of professionals who fought to get the truth out about the 2004 exit poll results. Though elements of the left did make some noises about election problems, there was no concerted effort to expose the massive election rip-off. However, the continued pressure from these experts eventually had a cumulative impact, which was reflected in the recent midterm results.

WHY DID THE WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDINGS

From ABC News:

....A new book is providing a new perspective on the 9/11 terror attacks. John Cerqueira, the young man who just three months before the 9/11 attacks graduated from N.C. State....was working on the 81st floor of the north tower when the attacks happened. He scrambled down the stairs and heard voices in the darkness on the 68th floor. He discovered a woman in a wheelchair who needed help and proceeded to carry her down 68 floors to safety....

Excerpt from John Cerqueira's book HERO SANDWICH:

....why can't I go faster? This dust cloud is behind me and gaining like a monster in a bad dream. It's getting closer, I pump my arms, my ankle pops, I don't care, I'm running for my life. I'm losing, I'm not going to make it. Find cover. There is none. Just my luck here on the West Side Highway to be in the only place in this crowded bitch of a city with no cover when I'm running from this cloud of death....

....I try to take a deep breath. I can't. Oh, God, this isn't just dust. It's hot, thick debris. I've taken a deep breath of concrete, asbestos, and ash. It's lodged in my throat. I can't breathe. I can't even close my mouth. I can't hear. Why can't I breathe? Shit! I can't breath. Is this it God? Am I done? I'm only 22 years old. What about my parents? My unborn kids? Shit, I still can't breathe, it hurts to try. 'OK God, I'm Yours, let's do it.' What will my funeral be like? Will I go to heaven? OK, try to breath one more time&no dice. I miss you Mom, I miss you Dad, I love you both&Alright God, do Your thing....

From the current issue of THE WASHINGTON FREE PRESS:

Does the World Trade Center Study Add Up?

by Rodger Herbst

[Numbered references appear at end of this article.]

....why did the building disintegrate into dust?

....The study does not attempt to explain why much of the mass of the building vaporized into fine dust....

....The NIST investigation also omitted or distorted many important aspects of the collapses, including movement of the WTC1 antenna before the adjacent facade, the pyroclastic dust clouds, and pools of molten metal In the WTC basements weeks after the attacks....

....The NIST study is a product of the Bush administration. An enumeration of the inconsistencies of the NIST study is consistent with a long standing and well documented pattern of Bush administration abuse of the scientific method.

The House Committee on Government Reform found "numerous instances where this Administration has manipulated the scientific process and distorted or suppressed scientific findings."

On February 18, 2004, over 60 leading scientists, including Nobel laureates, signed a statement that "The distortion of scientific knowledge for partisan political ends must cease". Since then, over 9000 additional scientists and engineers have signed on. [7]

A clear example of distortion of scientific knowledge was seen in the subsequent declaration by EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman that the "air is safe" in Manhattan a week after the attacks. In fact, according to top scientists, the air at Ground Zero was highly corrosive, and a "significant threat to health." The White House Council on Environmental Quality directed the EPA to edit the scientific findings "based on how it should be released publicly."[8]....

William Rodriguez Featured in Devon Newspaper and Interviewed on BBC Bristol

Hero of 9/11 Won't Stop Speaking Out Against Bush

One minute he was going about his business, the next he was looking at a vision from the depths of hell. Still reeling from a blast which rocked the World Trade Center, William Rodriguez could hardly believe what he was seeing."A man came running into the office shouting 'explosion, explosion!'" Mr Rodriguez soon saw a third of his body had been badly burnt by the blast. "When I realised, I started screaming. I looked at his face and it was missing parts."

It was the start of a day that transformed Mr Rodriguez from a maintenance man to the hero of 9/11...

Barrett: Academic freedom is good policy

By KEVIN BARRETT
(Barrett is a part-time lecturer at UW- Madison.)
Wisconsin State Journal

In the former Soviet Union, the monopoly media acted as cheerleader for a brutal, repressive government. Dissident academics were silenced, fired, or institutionalized.

For two or three years after 9/11, our media served as a megaphone for Bush administration lies, and academics were intimidated into silence....

....The excuse that my position is marginal no longer holds, given that only 16 percent of the American people believe the government is telling the truth about 9/11 (New York Times poll) and 36 percent of Americans, and half of New Yorkers, believe top US officials conspired to commit mass murder and high treason on 9/11 (Scripps-Howard and Zogby polls).

It is long past time for a rational, evidence-based debate on the facts and meaning of 9/11. Any takers?
