…. And why I now believe the WTC was demolished.
“Were the twin towers, and/or building 7, of the World Trade
Center complex brought down by controlled demolition?”
This has been the question I’ve been asked to respond to at each and
every forum and speaking engagement that I have participated in over the last
several years. Regardless of the fact that my speaking engagements usually coincide
with public showings of my film “Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime”
which deals with much of the heavily censored history associated with 9/11 –
with nothing at all to do with controlled demolition – it would appear
that my personal opinions on this matter remains important to much of my audience.
Despite my lack of expertise on this subject, it would appear that my audience
demands that I publicly take a position on controlled demolition.
For years I have explained to my 9/11 compatriots that I am agnostic on the
issue. Possessing no advanced degrees in physics or structural engineering,
I never felt that my opinions were relevant. And while I might document historical
events associated with 9/11 in my films, the job of expressing opinions on the
issue of complex and catastrophic building failures, physics and engineering,
was simply not within the realm of my particular area of expertise, therefore
rendering my opinions on the matter as insignificant and in many respects inappropriate.
Many within the 9/11 Truth movement regarded this sense of humility as betrayal,
accusing me of attempting to censor “the truth” and not towing the
party line on controlled demolition. Some of the accusation went even further.
David Ray Griffin and Moral Responsibility
I am in the process of reading David Ray Griffin’s newest book “Christian
Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11” for the second time. Apart from outlining
the evidence of U.S. government complicity in the attacks of 9/11, this book
also challenges its audience to understand the “demonic forces”
ever-present in world events. Taking this discussion out of the realm of mythology
and rejecting the fundamentalist evangelical approach to theology, Griffin makes
a very eloquent case for viewing USA foreign policy, global warming trends and
humanity’s sordid history of “War Systems” from a realist’s
standpoint - as a product our own intellectual creaturely creativity - in direct
conflict with the divine.
I have come to the conclusion, after reading this book, and reviewing USA foreign
policy in Guatemala, and Iran, and Indonesia, and Vietnam, and Cuba, and Chile,
and on and on and on, that advanced degrees in physics and structural engineering
is not necessary to read the obvious writings on the wall.
And, if we wait DECADES (as we did with all of these other crimes) to determine
the horrible truth – that YES the USA did indeed orchestrate terrorist
attacks all over the world, for over a century, as a tool of imperial design
– and if we WAIT decades for the ultimate evidence to emerge, as it has
now, that the USA has launched one false flag operation after another throughout
its sordid history – and if we WAIT decades for the books to be thrown
open and the government to finally admit its guilt (as it has done now with
its crimes against humanity that are now long buried in our history, for which
no one living can now be held accountable),…. it will be too late.
All evidence points at 9/11 as a false flag operation. And all evidence
appears to point at the controlled demolition of 3 buildings in the WTC complex,
for the following reasons:
There are simply too many eyewitness accounts from members of our emergency
services – police and firemen – of multiple explosions occurring
in rapid succession immediately preceding the collapse – far below the
impact/fire zones. The sheer number of witnesses who immediately (and separately)
referred to these explosions as being “like a controlled demolition”
or “like bombs going off” is inexplicable in its scope –
but, even more damning, inexplicable in that these eyewitness accounts were
intentionally suppressed by our government, have remained uninvestigated,
with the evidence at ground zero (a crime scene) quickly removed and shipped
47 core columns in each of the two towers appeared to simply disintegrate,
despite no damage from fire or impact from the planes. When one considers
the inherent strength of an array of 47 core steel columns, with multiple
redundant weight-baring support beams in place, it is simply inexplicable
to explain their total and catastrophic failure – in two buildings –
in nearly identical fashion.
Even if we are to believe that these 47 core steel columns were unable to
withstand a progressive top-to-bottom collapse, and failed accordingly, certainly
(at the very least) these lower floors, with their 47 steel columns and redundant
weight baring support beams, would have offered up some resistance, and slowed
down the progressive collapse. Yet, both building fell in approximately 10
seconds, at near free-fall speed. This is simply impossible.
Many people have asked me what authority an aging theologian like David Ray
Griffin may have in areas such as these. Like myself, he has none. But, the
one thing 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina and Iraq has taught me is that if this
world is to survive the Bush administration, it is time for all of us to recognize
what is increasingly becoming painfully obvious.
I am no stranger to psychological resistance, and denial. I can understand
why many Americans simply summarily dismiss the idea of our own government’s
complicity in 9/11. It is simply too horrible to consider. It is simply too
staggering a concept. It appears, on the face of it, too improbable. None of
us want to embrace a legacy so dark.
But, it is perhaps time for Americans to learn the lessons of the past, and
consider the dangers of what David Ray Griffin refers to as “demonic forces
