The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s September 2010 TV program adds to the information we had provided in our September 2008 TV program. Both interviews examined some of the flaws in the government’s official story of what had happened on September 11, 2001.
A growing number of people – including many scientists, architects, engineers, pilots and other professionals – have continued to analyze and provide new information beyond what we knew for the 2008 program, so in September 2010 we presented some of that new information along with some persistent critiques of the government’s official story.
On the very next day after the 9-11 attacks, Dick Cheney said we should respond by attacking Iraq. (Iraq had nothing to do with the 9-11 attacks, but Iraq had oil that Cheney coveted.) The next month, Bush launched a war against Afghanistan – and Congress passed the PATRIOT Act without reading it. Everything was happening at once, and people felt overwhelmed by the rush of events.
However, people started challenging what the government and mainstream media were telling us. People asked thoughtful questions but did not get credible answers.
The official culture wants to dismiss these questioners as “conspiracy theorists.” But the vast majority of skeptics are thoughtful, well informed and respected citizens who have studied the facts, found that the official story has holes in it, found evidence that rebuts the official story, and discovered what seem to be deliberate attempts to prevent the truth from coming out.
We believe that it is OK to question the official story – to hold up the actual evidence and compare it with the official story – to consider the evidence and ask questions – to stay open-minded – to follow the truth wherever it goes.
Two guests for this interview — Terry Macinata and Drew Gibbs — are two of the local people who have invested hundreds of hours researching the topic. They approach the subject with open minds and practical attitudes. They were guests on our September 2008 TV program and returned for this September 2010 interview.
