Why Do Good People Become Silent – or Worse – about 9/11?

Part 2: Diffusion of Innovations

Written by Frances T. Shure

Why Do Good People Become Silent – or Worse – about 9/11?

Editor’s Note:

Frances Shure, M.A., L.P.C., has performed an indepth analysis addressing a key issue of our time: “Why Do Good People Become Silent – or Worse – About 9/11?” The resulting essay, being presented here as a series, is a synthesis of reports from academic research as well as clinical observations.

In answering the question in the title of this essay, last month’s segment addressed the observation that resistance to information that substantially challenges our worldview is the rule rather than the exception; the various forms of fear that underlie this resistance, our American “sacred myth”; and the observation that many of us unconsciously relate to our governmental leaders as parental figures on whom we project our (often unmet) needs for a protective parent.


Conclusion of Our Report on September Congressional Outreach

Conclusion of Our Report on September Congressional Outreach

We reported back in October that we were Encouraging the Senate to ReThink 911 when we visited them during our September Action of the Month. We detailed Pamela Senzee’s visit with Ben Sundholm, Legislative Correspondent for Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). In this article we highlight the other actions we took to educate members of Congress while we were in Washington.

Wayne Coste, P.E., visited several Congressional offices the week before the DC911Truth Conference. We then invited conference attendees to join us in visiting their members of Congress. AE911Truth founder and CEO Richard Gage, AIA, hosted a group amounting to a dozen who traversed the honored halls the day after the conference.


2014 Membership Drive

Be a part of our bold agenda in 2014!

2014 Membership Drive. Be a part of our bold agenda in 2014!

Dear dedicated supporter of AE911Truth,

Over the past seven years, we at AE911Truth have worked vigorously to educate the architecture, engineering, and academic communities, and the larger public, about the destruction of all three WTC high-rises on 9/11.

Today, with over 2,100 professional architects and engineers supporting our call for a new investigation, the need to reinforce our financial foundation grows even stronger. Without a well-funded, professionally executed education and advocacy effort, the window of opportunity to bring about a meaningful resolution to the unsolved crimes of 9/11 could close for good.

History is counting on us.

To that end, between now and January 15, our goal is to gain 1,000 new members so that we will be able to expand our vitally important work together in 2014 and beyond.


September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor

A DVD by Massimo Mazzucco

September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor. A DVD by Massimo Mazzucco. Review of the Film by Simon Day and Commentary on the Italian Premiere by AE911Truth Staff

The DVD reviewed here is quite important for the 9/11 Truth movement generally. However, it ventures far outside the scope of AE911Truth’s mission and area of expertise. While we review, and wholeheartedly embrace, the excellent segments of the DVD that cover the World Trade Center evidence, we specifically do not endorse, or even discuss, the other three hours of material on the DVD.

In September 1997, “The Project for the New American Century,” a Washington, DC-based US think tank, was founded with the purpose of promoting US global leadership. In September 2000, they published a report entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces, and Resources For a New Century.” In this document, we find the following statement: “[T]he process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor.”


Two More Calls to CSPAN… Two More Members of Congress…

Representatives Express Willingness to Look at the Evidence

Two More Calls to CSPAN… Two More Members of Congress…. Representatives Express Willingness to Look at the Evidence

For several months supporters of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth have been dialing into C-SPAN's morning call-in show, Washington Journal, to confront members of Congress, the media, and others with the scientific evidence proving that pre-planted explosives brought down the Twin Towers and World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11. Some callers have implored legislators to support a new investigation into the complete, rapid destruction of all three modern steel skyscrapers.

On October 20, 2013, Diana Degette, (D-CO), appeared as a guest on the morning show. Questioning Congress's credibility, a caller asked:

"My question is concerning credibility of Congress in all of this. What credibility does Congress have left to govern with when basic physics have already proven that Building 7, World Trade Center 7, was brought down by explosives on 9/11, and the majority of Congressmen are willingly ignorant of this fact or can only offer rehearsed outrage in response to direct questions about this evidence?"


Divided Federal Appeals Court Panel Rules: Negligence Did Not Cause Building 7’s Collapse; Dissenting Judge Asks, ‘What Did?’

Written by Dennis P. McMahon, Esq, Gregg Roberts

Divided Federal Appeals Court Panel Rules: Negligence Did Not Cause Building 7’s Collapse; Dissenting Judge Asks, ‘What Did?’

In a 2-1 split decision, [Aegis v Silverstein COA Opinion.pdf] a federal appeals court panel in the Second Circuit ruled that negligence didn’t cause the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, on September 11, 2001. In his dissenting opinion, Circuit Court Judge Richard Wesley stated, “One would think that, on this record, the majority, would want to hear from defendants’ experts on why 7WTC collapsed.”

The lawsuit involved an action brought by Con Ed, a New York City power utility company that, along with its insurers, sued the defendants – 7 World Trade Co., L.P., Silverstein Development Corp., and Silverstein Properties, Inc. – who designed, built, operated, and maintained Building 7. The plaintiffs alleged that the defendants’ negligence had caused Building 7 to collapse, thereby destroying the electrical substation owned by Con Ed directly underneath the building.
