Live from NORAD, and New York, and Boston.

Vanity Fair Special: 9/11 Live, the NORAD Tapes:
NASYPANY (to floor): Negative. Negative clearance to shoot.… Goddammit!…
FOX: I'm not really worried about code words at this point.
NASYPANY: Fuck the code words. That's perishable information. Negative clearance to fire. ID. Type. Tail.

We went to the 9/11 truth movie and discussion last night (posted in advance of the event here) -- lots of stuff to think about, some things I knew about or had heard of, some new topics. Pretty well attended, I would say about 150-200, give or take... not bad for a church movie night and on a topic that most people are still closed to, something not even to be discussed! Even many liberals are really not receptive to even entertaining the thought that 9/11 may have been either an inside job or simply allowed to happen by the government (not much difference between those two, is there?).

I am open to it. I want more information! I do not believe one thing or the other, I like to be as skeptical as possible until I can no longer deny that something is reality. (Yes... I have my opinions, just like everyone. A "belief" is much more of a commitment than that... in my opinion... )

And speaking of reality, there is a dose of it in this Vanity Fair article (link at top of post) on the release of the NORAD recordings. NORAD's actions have been a part of many of the conspiracy theories (and was indeed mentioned in the film by Alex Jones, although in fairness his film is a couple of years old and now we have some fresh and revealing information to replace what was previously either deception, spin or speculation), and I believe that a few questions have now been answered. The article also comes with sound files.

As for the rest of the meeting, it was very good. Got a packet of resources, some recommended books, including this one from Davidson: "Defying Hitler. A Memoir". Sounds absolutely fascinating, I do want that one.

Also, I was relieved that there was no one who spoke out in agreement with the person whose solution to the problem (of defying the New World Order/neocons, etc.) was to arm everyone and "kill them all". Umm.... yikes!!

Wow. Violence? Yikes is right.

Have you seen Dr. Steven Jones's presentation yet? If not, he's a physicist from BYU. On (and I hope this link works) Scholars for 9/11 Truth they have a paper by him about the WTC as well as other items by other professors and free videos of presentations/lectures if you have the capability to take a look. If you want more info, let me know.

I have seen one interview with him (not really a presentation, just talking). Good link page, yes. I'd like to check him out further.

I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you on this. I'd explain but it would come out as an excuse.

RE: Steven Jones... If you look around the Scholars-site (front page but you'll have to scroll down), you should find a video and a couple of articles including a paper by Dr. Jones titled "Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?" (considering how long it took me to respond you've probably already found it by now). He also has a page at Brigham Young Univerity that has his most recent work on this subject.

My husband is the one who knows this stuff best... he's sunk more time into it than I have. If you're still interested, send me an email at mediahalfwaygone at yahoo dot com and I'll send you his recommendations for other stuff with a few comments of my own. I promise my response will be faster than this one. :)
