Alex Beam’s portrayal of “architect truthers” is yet another disappointing example of a journalist resorting to ad hominem attacks and avoiding the facts when discussing the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001 (“The ‘truthers’ and 9/11,” Opinion, Nov. 16). . . . The physical evidence shows that scattered office fires could not have caused the 47-story WTC 7 to collapse symmetrically into its footprint. (Imagine Boston’s 52-story Prudential Tower completely collapsing in seven seconds from small fires — it’s hard to, isn’t it?) The evidence also shows that the twin towers were not leveled by the airplane impacts and ensuing fires. The implications are indeed far-reaching, and that is why we urge people to study all the evidence before reaching a conclusion.
ROBERT STEELE: A&E is gaining traction with “mainstream” media that are now starting to realize the truth about 9/11 will inevitably come out, as the truth on JFK, MLK, and the USS Liberty has come out. My own Letter to the Editor as submitted is below, following my preliminary note:
NOTE: I would have posted this as a comment but as I am not a subscriber, I was not allowed to comment. I admired your investigation into pedophilia — now a movie — and I urge you to treat this matter with the same gravity. Lead the investigation. Raise money for the investigation — this is your opportunity to blow the extremist Republicans up in time to impact on the 2016 election, which I anticipate will be won by the Independent that Peter Ackerman and Michael Bloomberg are grooming for the moment. Below are 192 words, I would be honored if you would publish this, in part because the comments now posted to the Letter from Richard Gage are base and ignorant.
To the Editor:
I salute your publication of Richard Gage’s letter to the editor.
I am a professional intelligence officer with a lifetime of experience in covert operations including false flag operations. I endorse the evidence-based conclusions of A&E but wish to point out that it was the Families of 9/11 that first doubted the government narrative, soon joined by the Firefighters.
As with the JFK and MLK assassinations, and then the attack on the USS Liberty, the government narrative is a pack of lies. We were warned by thirteen countries in advance of 9/11. Dick Cheney made the day his own. He used his authority to schedule a national counterterrorism exercise months in advance of “the day,” and then collaborated with varied parties yet to be properly investigated, to create his desired “Pearl Harbor.”
A&E has proposed an independent investigation; I would like very much to see the Globe do some crowd-funding with A&E to this end.
The best link I can offer to your readers with an open mind, apart from AIA, is this one: Mini-Me: 9/11 Convergence 14th Anniversary — 13 Warnings, Dick Cheney Made It Happen….
