The Excavator 
Nov 8, 2010
While news organizations like Democracy Now! and Antiwar.com provide excellent daily coverage of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and deserve credit for enlightening their audience about critical issues, they are strangely failing them by not informing them of the scientific discovery of nano-thermite in samples of the World Trade Center dust by a team of scientists, physicists, and chemists. This incredible piece of information completely rules out the official version of the events of September 11 because only advanced military establishments are in the possession of nano-thermite, which is a high-grade explosive.
To publicize the explosive discovery, Steven Jones, Niels Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley, and Bradley R. Larsen wrote an article together called “ Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe”  that was published in 2009 in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal. If you want to read a summary of their findings, check out Jim Hoffman’s article “Explosives Found in World Trade Center Dust.”  Physics teacher David Chandler has also done outstanding work, particularly in this five minute video clip , in which he presents clear analysis of the North Tower exploding into dust.
This information can change the world the moment it is presented to the public with a clear and historical perspective. If Rolling Stone magazine or any magazine did a story about the big 9/11 lie and put leading figures of the 9/11 truth movement like Richard Gage, Steven Jones, Niels Harrit, David Ray Griffin, Alex Jones, and Jesse Ventura on its cover then it could help bring down the entire state terrorist regime in Washington.
Recently, an influential Australian union leader Kevin Bracken went onto a mainline morning talk show and questioned the orthodox version of 9/11, prompting a harsh and craven response by Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who called Bracken’s fact-based comments “stupid” but failed to contest them in any meaningful way.
Despite being the president of Australia’s Victorian Trades Hall Council, and secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia, Bracken’s story has yet to appear on the alternative “speak truth to power” media radar. According to the producers and editors who work for such organizations/websites as Democracy Now, Antiwar.com, Link TV, Free Speech TV, PBS, Truth-out.org, Truthdig.com, AlterNet.com, and Counterpunch.com, Bracken didn’t speak truth to power, he spoke “conspiracy theories” to power, and thus, should not be taken seriously.
That is why the term “conspiracy theories” is so convenient to the establishment. It is not meant to keep the mainstream media, but the alternative media in check, because the establishment is the mainstream media. Many news pieces relating to war and foreign policy are planted in top newspapers like the Washington Post by official propagandists, and government lackeys in the effort to distort reality, cover-up crimes, and discredit truth-tellers.
By assigning the term “conspiracy theories” to the work of credible individuals, the establishment creates a fake rift between the “sane” and the “insane”, casting off truth-tellers onto the “insane” side, where they are restricted to the darkness, voiceless, and without representation in officialdom; while believers in the government story of 9/11 are showered with propaganda that builds on the official myth and keeps otherwise critical minds on the government plantation.
The real question we should be asking is not who is sane, but who is innocent? Who is complicit for the fact that the truth about 9/11 has been effectively silenced and/or dismissed for nine years and counting? On some level we must all take responsibility for the current state of the world because it is not enough to just wait for change, we must make change happen. And not just at the personal level because what will ultimately make a difference and turn the balance of power from evil to good is deep political change.
Journalists and editors within the media who have a large audience must bravely step forward and tackle the “truth emergency”  as Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored call it, and defeat the secret tyranny that has been designed by the state terrorists in Washington.
Unfortunately, the journalists and editors who work for progressive magazines, antiwar publications, liberal websites, and alternative outlets, or the “Wannabe MSM Cowards”  as Eric Blair of Activist Post describes them, view people who are investigating and telling the truth about what happened on September 11, 2001 as crazy, misguided, or mischievous because they believe that what Bush said was the truth, and the book on that day is closed. In their mind, you persist in your questioning of the official story after all these years not because you care about your fellow human being, or because you are concerned about the future of the world, but because you like to feel special by fooling yourself that you are uncovering an important mystery that’s being neglected by the big boys. You say that 9/11 was an inside job because you are alienated, and insecure, not because it is the actual truth, so your opinion doesn’t matter. What you speak is childish, kooky, and irritating, and you should just go away.
How can any self-respecting human being respond to such nasty characterizations and stereotypes? I don’t see myself as crazy, paranoid, alienated, or kooky. Knowing the full truth about the 9/11 attacks, the fraudulent War on Terror, and America’s deep corruption is not an alienating experience. Truth is not a force that’s paralyzing, but uplifting; not negative, but positive; not regressive, but progressive; not mysterious, but obvious; not foreign, but familiar; not abstract, but concrete. It resides not in the dark corners of the world, in some cave beneath a waterfall, but rests above you like the sun, waiting to be seen, and if you stare at it long enough then you will see it for what it is.
America’s deep denial of the unpleasant truth about 9/11 is not hard to understand. If you think you live in a democratic and supposedly free country and don’t like staring at the ugly side of your government’s political corruption for too long then you can never really take in all its repulsive details, and discover through your own mind that your government is in fact dictatorial and authoritarian, and controlled by men who hate freedom.
It amounts to national suicide for America to keep denying the fact that its constitutional republic was captured and destroyed by a terrorist regime that is filled with rotten men who have committed treason, and crimes against humanity, and who are comparable to history’s most despicable murderers. Denial of this basic truth equals death, stagnation, slavery, and regression, whereas acceptance of it will lead to new life, positive change, societal transformation, the rule of law, and restored freedoms.
Once the ugly facts about the 9/11 events are fully accepted by the American people, then a politics of truth can emerge to replace the politics of lying, which will represent a true paradigm shift that will help rejuvenate American politics, and put America on the path of a real and long lasting recovery.
II. Challenge The Alternative Media, But Don’t Judge It
The alternative media’s blackout of scientific evidence and hard facts that disproves the official government story of the 9/11 attacks is difficult to come to terms with as a regular reader/viewer of outlets like Antiwar.com, Truthdig, Truth-out, The Huffington Post, and Democracy Now. Why are journalists, producers, and editors who work in the non-establishment media so meek in comparison to the loudmouth and opinionated jerks who fill the columns of mainstream publications like the Washington Post with war propaganda, and who manipulate the public discourse about the most critical issues through their stranglehold of cable news? What is holding back courageous and informed voices like Chris Hedges, Amy Goodman, Arianna Huffington, and Glenn Greenwald from taking that next step, and demanding a new criminal investigation of the 9/11 attacks?
In my view the censorship of 9/11 truth by the alternative media stems not from money-related issues, or from the fear of appearing crazy and paranoid by others, but from the fear of the unknown. Admitting that the events of 9/11 were orchestrated from scratch by the state terrorist regime in Washington D.C. sends a chill down anyone’s spine. Just the sheer thought that figures in the highest positions of authority in America are capable of betraying public trust and the basic foundations of human morality is too burdensome to contemplate. So journalists and editors swat away truth-tellers with the “conspiracy theory” label like everyone else and don’t even bother to look at the official story with new eyes because rethinking 9/11 means rethinking America, and modern American history.
In his book “The Forgotten Language: An Introduction To The Understanding of Dreams, Fairy Tales, and Myths”  German psychologist/philosopher Erich Fromm spoke of the dread that comes over an individual when he/she first discovers censored knowledge, writing: “Touching upon something hidden and taboo, the conscious mind is affected by a fear of a particular kind–the fear of the unknown, and the mystifying.” (Fromm, The Forgotten Language; pg. 216).
As more of us begin to question the official story of 9/11 the point of critical mass will be reached, and the explosion of truth that will undoubtedly follow will eradicate our fears and help us to tread the unknown path together in unity. Throughout the current existential crisis, we must all keep in mind that the future is not written, that uncertainty is a core part of the human experience, and that finding out the truth about deep corruption and state terrorism is a fun and worthwhile adventure that will produce much-needed reforms, and change Western democratic governments for the better.
People who have known the truth about 9/11 for a long time must be uncritical of others who are beginning to discover the truth for the first time. Our mentality should be steered towards understanding instead of judging. It is counter-productive to demonize journalists and reporters who insist that the official story is true, and put down the 9/11 truth and accountability campaign as fringe and backward. It is not right to judge people because they are blind to the truth. And it is not right to shame people who have committed a stupid error by not reporting on 9/11 truth because shame is the courage killer; it kills the air in the room, and turns men into mice. It is always better to bring people up, and work together to come up with solutions to problems on an equal footing, and that is not possible if you shame people who can be of tremendous help in the years ahead.
True, the absence of investigative reporting of the “crime of the century” by non-establishment journalists who are usually distrustful of the mainstream media’s presentation of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is deeply disturbing, but it is explainable because journalists and reporters are victims of government brainwashing, too, and should not be criticized harshly. They genuinely care about America, humanity, the truth about the war on terror, and the destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan. I frequently make the mistake of calling people who deny 9/11 truth cowards, but they are not cowards, they are just ignorant. And we should not judge ignorance as shameful, so I was wrong to characterize the alternative media’s censorship of 9/11 truth as shameful.
Also, there may be individuals within the alternative media who are ashamed to speak openly about their belief that 9/11 was a government orchestrated event because they feel a greater sense of complicity for not raising their voice sooner than the rest of the public, having been in a position of influence and authority. They must be told that there is nothing shameful in denying the truth about 9/11. Supporting a new criminal investigation of the 9/11 attacks now is all that matters to the victims of 9/11, and the victims of the wars that followed that event.
The people who should be ashamed are the traitors/state terrorists/thieving tricksters who had a hand in the 9/11 attacks. But they will not apologize because they don’t have any feelings of shame and guilt. Like all sociopathic war criminals who are proud and arrogant, they will probably spin and rationalize their crimes up to the end, even when it is execution time.
III. End The Truth Blackout: Email Alternative/Progressive/Anti-War Sites, Demand That They Support A New Criminal Investigation of The 9/11 Attacks
Write a few paragraphs to the following alternative/progressive/anti-war sites about why you think they should uncover the truth about the September 11 attacks. Be encouraging, be respectful, and be critical:

Here is what I wrote:
Narrow minded critics say that examining 9/11 in a new light is a futile exercise that takes away from our present struggles, and distracts us from confronting and planning for global crises in the near future, but these critics are avoiding the glaring reality that without accountability, and justice, a society can’t move forward. How can America and the world address crises like environmental catastrophe, and a global economic meltdown when the state terrorists who did the 9/11 crime still run the show in America? The events of 9/11 have been used to justify mass murder, criminal invasions of innocent countries, theft of public funds, illegal surveillance, and a plethora of other crimes.
9/11 is not the past. The consequences of 9/11 are felt every day by the American people, and the people around the world, especially in Afghanistan, and Iraq, the site of unbelievable crimes against humanity. But you can put a stop to this, which is the biggest reason for hope. By covering up 9/11 evidence that disproves the official story for over nine years, the U.S. government, and the mainstream media have tied up America’s hands and legs, blindfolded her eyes, plugged her ears, and stuck a duct tape over mouth. But, America is not motionless, she has a pulse, and she is resisting the attack on the Constitution and the freedoms of the American people by the criminal conspirators/traitors/terrorists who captured the government.
You can help America resist harder, and defeat the state terrorists in power by shedding light on the truth about the September 11 attacks. Please interview truth-tellers like Richard Gage, Steven Jones, Jeffrey Farrer, Niels Harrit, and David Chandler. Do a story on Aidan Monaghan’s Freedom of Information Act requests  which are consistently denied by the government. Chart new territory by doing fresh investigative reporting into the crime of the century. You have the resources, the knowledge, and the manpower to assist the American people’s understanding of what really happened on September 11, 2001. And, with all due respect, it is your responsibility to dig for the truth.
