Denver and Boulder Monthly Meetings: “War Promises” July 2011

This month we will present the documentary film, War Promises, which gives a German  perspective on the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the so-called “Global War on Terror.”  We are shown that the motivation behind 9/11 is the neo-conservative call for military “full spectrum dominance.”
Harold Pinter referred to the term in his 2005  Nobel Prize acceptance speech:

I have said earlier that the United States is now totally frank about putting its cards on the table. That is the case. Its official declared policy is now defined as ‘full spectrum dominance’. That is not my term, it is theirs. ‘Full spectrum dominance’ means control of land, sea, air and space and all attendant resources.

We see in this film that President Obama has furthered this agenda.

A 2008 poll of 17 nations found that majorities in only nine of them believe that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.  Middle Eastern countries are especially likely to name a perpetrator other than al Qaeda.  But even in European countries, large minorities  said they do not know who was behind 9/11.  Germany led in this sketicism of the official 9/11 narrative with 23% specifically citing the US goverernment as the perpetrator, as did 15% of Italians.  A December 2010 poll revealed that an astonishing 89.5% of German citizens doubt the official 9/11 story.

Millions of people around the world now believe that Western intelligence services, which are linked in their operations, organized the hidious attacks on New York and Washington on 9/11.

This film is about the resistance to having our own intelligence agencies perpetrating hoaxes in order to obtain resources. Please see below for details. [Read more...]

(Note from Colorado 9/11 Visibility: Despite a trend in the U.S. government and the U.S. corporate media to link the 9/11 Truth movement with terrorists or potential terrorists and an overall failure to report honestly on the subject inside the U.S., there has been increasingly objective coverage of 9/11 Truth in the international media that is awakening global awareness to this controversy.  There are also nascent signs in the U.S. of increasing media objectivity–most notably the KBDI, Colorado Public Television’s two pledge drives screening the films 9/11 Press for Truth and 9/11:  Blueprint for Truth. More can be found at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.)

Abstract

In the past year, in response to emerging independent science on the 9/11 attacks, nine corporate, seven public, and two independent media outlets aired analytic programs investigating the official account.

Increasingly, the issue is treated as a scientific controversy worthy of debate, rather than as a “conspiracy theory” ignoring science and common sense.

This essay presents these media analyses in the form of 18 case studies.

Eight countries  Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Russia  have allowed their publicly-owned broadcasting stations to air the full spectrum of evidence challenging the truth of the official account of 9/11.

This more open approach taken in the international media–I could also have included the Japanese media–might be a sign that worldwide public and corporate media organizations are positioning themselves, and preparing their audiences, for a possible revelation of the truth of the claim that forces within the US government were complicit in the attacks  a revelation that would call into question the publicly given rationale for the military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

The evidence now being explored in the international media may pave the way for the US media to take an in-depth look at the implications of what is now known about 9/11, and to re-examine the country’s foreign and domestic policies in the light of this knowledge.


I.  Introduction

Until 2009, doubts about the official 9/11 story were briefly entertained by the mainstream media on each anniversary of the event, allowing the independent research community only a fleeting moment once a year to publicly voice its findings.

But after crucial scientific evidence emerged in April 2009 to challenge the official story of how the towers fell, a spate of European media reports followed.  The news coverage of this evidence seems to have opened the door to more serious reflection on all aspects of the 9/11 issue in the major media.

The first paper in my series, “The Media Response to 9/11,” dealt with the New Statesman’s grudging recognition of Dr. David Ray Griffin, the world’s “top truther” (as it dubbed him), placing him number 41 among “The 50 People Who Matter Today.”1  Since this admission in September 2009, the issue has gathered increasing momentum.

The collective content issuing from this new momentum is presented here in the hope that it will embolden other major media to take up the pivotal controversy concerning 9/11, and pursuing the truth wherever it may lead.

Observations on the Analysis

While carrying out my analysis, I observed five new features in the media treatment of the 9/11 issue that developed as 2009 progressed.  They are listed here, so that readers might look for them in the case studies that follow below:

1. The 9/11 issue is increasingly framed not as conspiracy theories versus hard science, but as a legitimate controversy resting on unanswered questions and a search for truth.

2. News reports and television programs examining these controversies have become longer and more balanced.

3. Major media outlets have begun to present the claims of the truth movement first, followed by counter-arguments from defenders of the official story.

4. Major media outlets have begun to include, and even to introduce, extensive evidence to support the claims of the 9/11 truth community.

5. The media treatments increasingly suggest the possibility of a re-investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.

The first part of this essay deals with the crucial scientific evidence that emerged in early 2009, the significance of this evidence in relation to the official story of 9/11, and the immediate news coverage it received.  [Read more...]
