4 Videos that help to deconstruct the myth of 9/11. Is the US A society living in profound denial?
A significant portion of the international community feels that a careful and critical reflection on the events of September 11, 2001 is now required, given that these events have been the pretext for invasions and human rights violations throughout much of the world. The International Center for 9/11 Studies is sponsoring four days of citizen Hearings in Toronto, Canada on the 10th anniversary of the events of 9/11. To a distinguished panel of international citizens, expert witnesses will testify that official investigations into 9/11 have failed to describe and account for the 9/11 events. A final report consisting of the testimonies and the conclusions of panelists will be issued for citizens across the world.
GRTV talks to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Treasury Secretary, former editor of the Wall Street Journal, author and researcher, about the significance of 9/11 on the brink of the tenth anniversary of those events. We discuss the many points at which the official explanation of 9/11 do not mesh with the available evidence, the many experts who have raised their voices in dissent (and been silenced), and what our response to 9/11 teaches us about where we are heading as a society. (Paul Roberts has a slow, pondering speaking style, but well worth listening to. He is a frequent contributor to the left wing journal/website Counterpunch, one of whose editors, Alexander Cockburn, is a strong opponent of any "911 Conspiracy Theories." Here is Cockburn's most recent 'rebuttal' to the 9/11 truth movement, an article that appears to my eyes to be a childish, hysterical rant.)
