Forensic Science 101
Even the choice of the day — 9/11 — is not something that a real Muslim terrorist would do. More likely, it seems to me, it's evidence of a western mind at work branding a nightmarish new ad campaign. And although the farther in time we get from 9/11 the easier it may be to sift through technical facts, to me it still causes extreme discomfort to acknowledge the cloud of evil, the profound treachery, directed by high American officials. Indeed, I suspect that in the long run public acceptance of an alternative narrative will hinge less on empirical analysis than on a plausible political explanation. To learn about the progress the 9/11 truth movement is making I turned once again to Dr. David Ray Griffin, whose most recent book is The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé. It was great to talk with David — I have the utmost respect for his leadership on these vexing questions and for both the quality of his work and his phenomenally prodigious output. Please think critically. Total runtime an hour and nine minutes.
