“The people have a right to the truth as they have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
– FRANK NORRIS (1870-1902) American novelist
A number of weeks ago, after posting a piece on September 11, 2001, we wrote that would be the last time the world-transforming event would be covered here. They say that the only thing one can be sure of in life is change, so the winds of change are howling. It was probably only coincidence a few mornings ago that while channel surfing, and as usual finding nothing worth watching, that C-SPAN’s morning call-in program became selected – a TV selection not made in months.
To great surprise, instead of finding the usual single moderator taking phone calls from viewers wanting to speak out on relatively minor issues, the host was just introducing Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. After listening to the program, considering the timing of an unusual channel selection, and turning thoughts to the fact that some very bad criminals are still on the loose after close to thirteen years, intuition said “do this, talk about 9/11 being discussed on C-SPAN.”
For those who’ve spent any real amount of time researching the events of September 11, 2001 – and understand the need for a real investigation as opposed to the whitewash 9/11 Commission Report – you know Richard Gage appearing on C-SPAN is a really, really big deal. The channel on YouTube where the C-SPAN video below was found has received over 30,000 views in just a couple of days, and hopefully now the critical mass needed to bring about a real investigation will rapidly be reached.
Some very intelligent and serious men and women are calling for the first comprehensive investigation of September 11, 2001, the date of a global-consequence mass murder that remains unsolved after 13 years. Former U.S. Senator Max Cleland, a man who had both legs and an arm blown off in Vietnam, was originally on the 9/11 Commission but resigned saying “this is a national scandal.”
What has come to be known as the “9/11 Smoking Gun” – Building 7 of the World Trade Complex – was not even mentioned in the official 9/11 Commission Report. Building 7, which was a 47-story skyscraper never hit by a plane, fell some 7 hours after the Twin Towers in the afternoon, and has been judged a controlled demolition by experts. Any average man or woman, upon seeing the videos of its collapse, have no alternative but to agree with the experts on explosives causing the skyscraper to fall.
For the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) to publish a report on Building 7 without telling the obvious fact of the controlled demolition is like telling the world that a nude man who streaked across the field during the final seconds of a tied Super Bowl – with billions of eyes around the Earth glued to their television screens – that, that nude man is only a figment of billions of people’s imagination. The naked streaker on air event seen by billions of human beings – did not happen.
During the C-SPAN broadcast one caller asked a few questions:
Where is the airplane debris from the crash in Pennsylvania?
Where are the black boxes from the airplanes?
Why did the Bush administration fight the investigation?
Why did Building 7 collapse?
Why were military and political people told not to fly that day?
Who scheduled hijacking war games for September 11, 2001?
Where was NORAD?
Who told them to stand down?
September 11 became used as the basis for arguments leading to U.S. wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, six thousand Americans and perhaps one million Iraqis lost their lives, Americans’ civil liberties have disappeared, and trillions of dollars went for the wars – while large amounts of additional funds go for health care and other costs in their aftermath.
A woman called in and pointed out that New York mayor Rudy Giuliani failed to direct/order evacuating the second Twin Tower after the first was hit.
Mr. Gage points out that NIST’s report contains 100 pages of obfuscation and outright lies.
Another man called in and suggested a real investigation would need to include eyewitnesses who were never interviewed by the 9/11 Commission, and that these people are crime scene witnesses. Mr. Gage responded with examples of potential eyewitnesses like Barry Jennings who heard explosions while inside Building 7 – he unfortunately passed away the day before NIST released their report, a former Air Force medic who overheard a countdown – “3, 2, 1…” then felt explosions under his feet “like you have to grab on to something”, and firefighters and police officers telling people to move away from Building 7 because “it’s about to blow up.”
A U.S. military veteran called in, told about coming close to dying in war after September 11, and thanked both Richard Gage and C-SPAN for speaking/airing the truth.
BBC announced on air that Building 7 had completely collapsed – some 20 minutes before it actually collapsed.
Richard Gage: “We are talking about evidence that’s capable of being brought in court, and standing up against the legal process. Let’s get it going…”
Mr. Gage then mentions Senator Cleland’s resignation from the 9/11 Commission and attorney for the 9/11 Commission John Farmer’s statement: “there was a decision at some point not to tell the American people the truth.” At this point Mr. Gage said “the American people deserve the truth, Peter (C-SPAN host).”
A caller asked Richard Gage if he’s received any death threats or needed to resort to greater personal/family security measures. The response from Mr. Gage was “thankfully not, for which I’m eternally grateful.”
Richard Gage: “I’m just a normal, everyday architect and person who is very concerned about our country. As an American, I am deeply disturbed about the state of affairs when a deception on the scale of these three criminally controlled demolitions can occur and most Americans, fortunately not all, have been deceived. And most of our elected representatives are unwilling to tackle the very serious issues before them, such as the finding of nano-thermite, which the caller mentioned, in the World Trade Center dust.”
Mr. Gage then pointed out that those architects and engineers who’ve come to look at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth findings, and studied the scientific presentations, come to almost unanimous agreement that a real investigation must be conducted in a professional and all-inclusive form.
“Building 7 came down in an explosive, controlled demolition. It is very clear and overwhelming. We’re asking all Americans to first get informed, and second, watch the film “9/11 Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out.” Once people become informed, they can tell others.”
“We praise C-SPAN for having the courage to bring forth the evidence on this morning’s show. Our effort is to educate the American people so that they will be informed, they can demand a real investigation, and then we’ll let the chips fall where they may. We don’t have a conspiracy theory, we’re bringing the evidence. It’s up to others to investigate and find out who may or may not have been responsible.”
Events on September 11, 2001 were of epic, historic, harmful consequence.
Considering the events which have occurred in the 13 years since that paradigm-shifting day, those historic consequences have been utterly negative for the human family.
Finding the truth of events on September 11, 2001 offers the only path toward healing the human family of wounds suffered in the past thirteen years.
A real investigation guarantees bringing about epic, historic, healing consequence.
