Griffin replies to Monbiot's Guardian Hit-Piece
[Why do those who try to defend Zelikow's "19 hijackers" myth
always hurl insults rather than argue evidence? Because they have no
evidence. The points Griffin raises about the WTC demolitions in this
short article are unassailable. THERE ARE NO COUNTER-ARGUMENTS. The
ever-changing official stories put out by the same four corrupt 'scientists'
under the various names of FEMA, the 9/11 Commission, and NIST, do not even
attempt to explain the horizontal ejections, pulverization, free-fall speed,
and molten steel. To even mention these phenomena, which are easily visible
in the videos, is to admit controlled demolition. Thus they remain
unmentioned and unmentionable, the elephant in the living room of the 21st
Morons and Magic: A Reply to
David Ray Griffin
Thursday, March 8, 2007
In “Bayoneting a Scarecrow The 9/11 conspiracy theories are a coward’s
cult.” (Guardian, February 20), George Monbiot accuses members of the 9/11
truth movement of being “morons” and “idiots” who believe in “magic.” Having
in his previous attack---“A 9/11 conspiracy virus is sweeping the world,”
Guardian, February 6---called me this movement’s “high priest,” he now
describes my 9/11 writing as a “concatenation of ill-attested nonsense.”
03/07/07 "ICH " -- - If my books are moronic nonsense, then people who have
endorsed them must be morons. Would Monbiot really wish to apply this label
to Michel Chossudovsky, Richard Falk, Ray McGovern, Michael Meacher, John
McMurtry, Marcus Raskin, Rosemary Ruether, Howard Zinn, and the late Rev.
William Sloane Coffin, who, after a stint in the CIA, became one of
America’s leading civil rights, anti-war, and anti-nuclear activists?
If anyone who believes that 9/11 was an inside job is by definition an
idiot, then Moncbiot would have to sling that label at Colonel Robert
Bowman, former head of the U.S. “Star Wars” program; Andreas von Bülow,
former State Secretary in the German Federal Ministry of Defense; former CIA
analysts Bill Christison and Robert David Steele; former Scientific American
columnist A. K. Dewdney; General Leonid Ivashov, former chief of staff of
the Russian armed forces; Colonel Ronald D. Ray, former U.S. Deputy
Assistant Secretary of Defense; all the members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth,
Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, Veterans for 9/11 Truth, and Pilots for
9/11 Truth; and most of the individuals listed under “Professors Question
9/11” on the “Patriots Question 9/11” website.
One of the reasons these people reject the government’s conspiracy theory is
that, if they were to accept the official account of the destruction of the
World Trade Centre, they would need to affirm magical beliefs. A few
The Twin Towers came straight down, which means that each building’s 287
steel columns all had to fail simultaneously; to believe this could happen
without explosives is to believe in magic.
At the onset of each tower’s collapse, steel beams were ejected out as far
as 600 feet; to believe that these horizontal ejections could be explained
by gravitational energy, which is vertical, is to believe in magic.
Virtually all of the concrete in the towers was pulverized into extremely
fine dust particles; to believe that fire plus gravity could have done this
is to believe in magic.
WTC 7 and the towers came down at virtually free-fall speed, meaning that
the lower floors, with all their steel and concrete, provided no resistance
to the upper floors; to believe this could happen without explosives is to
believe in magic.
Pools of molten metal were found under each building. Because steel does not
begin to melt until it reaches about 1,540°C and yet the fires could not
have gotten over 1000°C, to accept the fire theory is to believe in magic.
Monbiot, regarding the 9/11 truth movement’s conspiracy theory as a
wrong-headed distraction, fails to see that the obviously false and truly
distracting conspiracy theory is the official 9/11 myth, which has been used
to justify imperial wars and increased militarism, thereby distracting
attention from global apartheid and the ecological crisis. We focus on the
9/11 myth because, until it is exposed, getting our governments to focus
wholeheartedly on the truly urgent issues of our time will be impossible.
David Ray Griffin has published over 30 books, including four about 9/11.
His next book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and
Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory, will be out in April.
"A society whose citizens refuse to see and
investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their
media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to
verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police State
Dictatorship it's going to get."
