The 9/11 Conspiracy: The Scamming of America

Synopsis

Polls now show that eighty percent of Americans do not believe the government has told them the truth about 9/11-and the number of skeptics keeps growing. 9/11 is joining the Kennedy assassination and Watergate as one of the great cover-ups which slowly unravels as the years go by.

As the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, a non-partisan organization of students, experts and scholars, I have been astonished at the public vilification that has been directed at members of this society for pursuing the truth about 9/11.

In this case, however, the university has supported academic freedom and scholarly research and resisted pressures to which lesser institutions have succumbed. And Steven E.Jones, whom I invited to become co-chair when I founded Scholars, has been eased out of his position as a professor of physics at Brigham Young University, even though he was a long-time faculty member in good standing. The academic administration nudged him into “early retirement,” so that his research would no longer be associated with BYU.

There are multiple reasons why these actions and attitudes verge on the absurd. Even according to President George W. Bush, 9/11 was “the pivotal event” of the twenty-first century.
