An Inside Job

World Trade CollapseI must admit it's difficult for me, as a former bureaucrat, to imagine that people within the US government could pull off a successful conspiracy. On the other hand I cannot believe, much as I might like to, the standard account of 9/11. Perhaps the largest part of the problem in arguing for a conspiracy theory is that it takes a theory to beat a theory: here, a holistic account—who really did it? why did they do it? what's happened to all the inconvenient details, such as passengers who had to be gotten rid of?, etc.—it's insufficient to offer merely a set of observations that, due to well-understood scientific principles, the standard story cannot possibly be true. Pentagon

At the same time, the validity and critical importance of scientific objections must be acknowledged. The premiere group to make such objections is Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Their founder, Jim Fetzer, kindly agreed to the interview here. To be honest, I'd have preferred to talk with David Ray Griffin, who is so reasonable, so well-spoken, that even C-SPAN has broadcast his talks on 9/11. But David is finishing up a new book project on the subject and not just now doing interviews. On his recommendation I sought out Prof. Fetzer. Jim is a wise gentleman indeed, and what he's got to say gets us a great deal closer to the truth. This podcast runs long, at an hour and twenty minutes. Thanks for listening!
