From Ron Rattner: 

Dear Greg Palast:

Until recently, you were one of my aggressive progressive ‘heroes’, because of your important investigative reporting on election fraud and other issues crucial to US democracy.   But on May 10, 2007, in an INN TV interview, you made statements which have greatly disturbed and disillusioned me about your journalistic integrity and credibility.   I recently watched the interview on YouTube at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=r2oFTiEpIBQ 

Responding to direct questions by INN host Lenny Charles about possible controlled demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11, you contradictorily first disclaimed any relevant expertise and then emphatically proclaimed that you and your BBC team had found  “zero evidence” and "ruled out” any possibility of 9/11 “controlled demolition", asserting that it “just didn’t happen”.

Whereupon, you gratuitously and maliciously defamed distinguished physicist Dr. Steven E. Jones, who has done important scientific research on controlled demolition, calling him a “fruitcake” and a “complete and utter fraud”.   Apparently, you intended to professionally discredit Dr. Jones and his work, and thereby to ingratiate yourself with those who have been systematically censoring both you and Dr. Jones in the US corporate media. 

In my opinion, your emphatic proclamation that “zero evidence” supports the “controlled demolition” hypothesis, was a knowing and calculated lie.   But most disturbing to me was your gratuitously outrageous and malicious defamation of Professor Jones as an alleged “fruit cake” and “complete and utter fraud”.  

Professor Jones is a distinguished, patriotic, and credible scientist citing irrefutable laws of physics, hard evidence, significant laboratory test results, and eye witness testimonies about the unprecedented destruction of three WTC steel skyscrapers on 9/11.  

As you well know, his work – like yours – has been acknowledged as important by Project Censored and its distinguished panel of judges. 

He is not - and can not be -  discredited by those like you who cite no facts disputing him, only unsupported and insupportable opinions, negative innuendos, and  totally unfounded ad hominem attacks.  That’s vicious defamation, not science. That’s how Galileo was “discredited”.   Like Galileo, Dr. Jones has been defamed, not “discredited”. 

The manner in which you gratuitously attacked Professor Jones tells us much more about your lack of integrity, than about the validity of his scientific research.  Apparently, in the tradition of Fox News, you would ‘crucify’ a 9/11 truth-teller rather than concede the truth of his message –  the truth which can set us free from ignorance and oppression.   

What Dr. Jones says  about 9/11 must be carefully considered, not censored or mindlessly ridiculed by those who 'protesteth too much'.  I urge that you reconsider and retract your disparagements of Dr. Jones, and that you cover the 9/11 issue, with facts, not attacks.

Dear Greg Palast:

I have not yet had the courtesy of your response to my June 6, 2007, letter (above), requesting you to reconsider and retract your outrageous and gratuitously malicious INN TV public disparagements of Dr. Steven E. Jones. 

After proclaiming that "zero evidence" supported Dr. Jones' 9/11 'controlled demolition' hypothesis, you publicly called him a  "fruitcake" and a "fraud" and, thereupon, you histrionically dared him to respond to your bizarre performance.  But, you completely failed to offer any explanation, or to cite any credible evidence, supporting your assertions.  

Please do so by responding to my letter (below) without further undue delay.

Your erstwhile admirer, 

Ron Rattner, retired attorney

San Francisco 

PS.  I am sending copies of this open letter to Project Censored, and to progressive broadcast journalists who have hosted you, asking that they share with you their opinions of your INN interview, and that they cover the “controlled demolition” issues raised by Dr. Jones and others.
