Re: “An Inside Job

Rachel,

Thanks very much for giving publicity to this extremely important subject. I appreciate took the time to often state SOME people in the truth movement rather than ALL about a few things in the article. Unfortunately overall, the article was filled with logical fallacy (primarily ad hominem), bias and failed to present nor respond to the most logical and commonly asked questions being proposed by millions of American's across the country who cannot be charaterized as "wonks" nor part of one particular movement. You have misrepresented the majority of Americans who have asked valid questions about the "official" government conspiracy theory in regard to the event's of the 9/11 attacks.

Because after reading this you seem honest, I want to make sure you are aware that people's speculative conclusions about 9/11 are not the most important information to pay attention to and research if you are looking into the attacks of 9/11. Of course in regard to 9/11, you will of course find speculation of every sort. This however should not stop you from looking into the valid questions presented by the 9/11 truth movement (like this evidence with MAINSTREAM MEDIA there where absolutely people who invested in United and American Airlines stock going down following the attacks of 9/11 http://www.911research.com/sept11/stockputs.html ) 911research.com is great resource by the way and I appreciate you publicizing it in the article even if it was in a negative and perhaps inaccurate manner. Please continue to read through all the information and check the references on this page. I found many that where from completely legitimate resources.


In regard to David Ray Griffen, you Rachel appear to have presented him in a bias fashion. First, simply by not only with holding an acknowledgement of Griffen's highly regarded books (one of which even Howard Zinn even wrote an intro for) which raise in great detail specific questions as well as complete omissions of some of the most important facts which the 9/11 Commission presented as truthful. By only attacking Griffen primarily for his scientific knowledge, you have failed to responsd the most legitimate questions which David Ray Griffen has forced me to ask myself. It was your job as a journalist to at least show people that there are legitimate things Griffen is asking and try and respond to a few at least, like these..http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20050523112738404

The event you attended is absolutely one attended primarily by people who are already quite knowledgeable on the subject and I personally find this unfortunate. This is often do to lack of media promotion outlets as well as the fact that the majority of people in the country who have many questions about the official government "official" conspiracy theory. Someone who has never encountered or seemed to do alot of research in regard to the subject of 9/11 truth would benefit immensely from attending one of these events, though I can see how it was intimidating for you because you are encountering people who have studied the subject for YEARS before stating the conclusions they are stating. It is important however it is important that people gather to find, learn and collaborate in attempt to gather CLEAR EVIDENCE that is free from speculation. Most of the people you encountered I'm sure encouraged you to ask questions and do YOUR OWN research. Unfortunately you choosing to present everyone who is looking into 9/11 independently as a small group of people of wonks or hippies who are all similar to those at this event only adds to my dismay that you are presenting a valid credible subject in a bias way. You mainly talked about attendee's most speculative or hard to research conclusions rather than presenting the most obvious and valid questions which would be important to a clear representation of this subject. The questions being discussed about the events of Sept. 11th are proposed by millions of different types of people. I encourage you to research the credible and dismiss the speculative. If you find websites which attempt to speculate and theorize I encourage you to only go with the evidence presented and not the conclusions. Correct me if I'm wrong but you are standing behind all of the 9/11 commissions findings? Have you seen video's of WTC7 at all? Does it make sense that the 9/11 commission report would leave WTC7 out of the entire report? Have you seen the New York times CBS poll http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/view/13469 showing that more than half of the American people believe there are lies being told by the government about 9/11. Please since you felt inclined to write an article of this nature do more research on the subject of 9/11 truth. Rachel if you can ignore some of the speculation and conclusions you will encounter thrown around, you will not only find extremely legitimate evidence of a crime which the government failed to respond to, you also most likely feel inclined to write another article where you clarify the legitimate questions being asked about the governements official conspiracy theory and perhaps add your own. Thanks for you time and more press attention to this story.
