9-11 Press for Truth Premieres at Spangenberg Oct 27th

Original post made by Carol Brouillet, Barron Park, on Oct 12, 2006

Friday, October 27th, at 7 pm, at Spangenberg Theater, Gunn High School, Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance will premiere the excellent documentary- 9/11 Press for Truth to be followed by a discussion with the film’s hero, Paul Thompson, author of The Terror Timeline (Harper Collins 2004) and author Peter Dale Scott, who wrote Drugs, Oil, and War- The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina (2003), edited (with David Ray Griffin) 9/11 and American Empire, and wrote The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America (which will be published in 2007).

Following the attacks of September 11th, grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the attack, including the Bush administration. In “9/11 Press For Truth,” those most affected by the tragedy, including three of the Jersey Girls, tell the story of how they took on the powers in Washington and won. They forced an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission fail to even ask their most urgent questions.

Adapting Paul Thompson’s Complete 9/11 Timeline (Web Link), the film stitches together news clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin. Thompson’s narrative presents a different picture of 9/11, one that raises new, more pressing questions.

What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape in Afghanistan? What has been the reason for obscuring the evidence regarding the Pakistani connection? Why, five years later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?

Both authors have researched the CIA, Al Qaeda, the links between the US government and the terrorists. In addition to the issues and questions raised by the film, they will look at the films’ omissions, including who was in command on 9/11, and the multiple wargames that were being conducted that day which challenge the official story and underline the urgency of investigating the crime of the century.

Paul Thompson graduated from Stanford University. His mother taught at Gunn High School. On the other hand, Peter Dale Scott recently spoke at length about top Al Qaeda operative Ali Mohammed, who lived in Santa Clara for years, and also took part in the '93 World Trade Center bombing, the African Embassy bombings, and 9/11 and who worked for the FBI, CIA, and the military.

Thompson and Peter Dale Scott don't have all the answers, but they do raise some very serious questions that should be addressed by the media, Congress, and a serious investigation into the events of September 11th. This event is designed to raise the level of dialogue on what was once a taboo topic.

I was so happy to see this posting, and then surprised that there were no responses.

Even if you don't believe that our government was behind 9/11, following the links and those leading from them on 911 is enlightening.
