A 9/11 Re-Investigation and the Power of Consensus Statements

An Open Letter to Senator Bob Graham, Michael Moore, and Amy Goodman

Dear Sen. Graham, Michael Moore, and Amy Goodman:

Regarding your discussions on Democracy Now, September 15th and September 29th, including “Michael Moore Backs Call to Re-Open Investigation of 9/11 Attacks,” –  the “best evidence” formulated by the new 9/11 Consensus Panel may be helpful in your quest.

The work of this distinguished expert Panel was first announced in a North America-wide press release on September 9, 2011.

Brief summary of the Panel’s function and importance:

The mainstream media has claimed for a decade that it is not in a position to evaluate the technical evidence being presented by the 9/11 Truth Movement against the official narrative of the events of September 11, 2001.

Many in the media perceive a problem in challenging government explanations that they feel are over their heads.

A parallel problem existed in the field of medicine for many years, during which there were contradictory, unranked approaches to medical treatments.

This problem was greatly reduced by the introduction of “evidence-based” medicine.

Using widely accepted verification tools such as the Delphi Method, medicine has now developed hundreds of standard Consensus Statements to guide physicians in diagnosis and treatment.

Similarly, 22 expert members of the new 9/11 Consensus Panel have recently developed 13 Consensus Points of “best evidence” opposing the official account of 9/11.

The respondents, who remained blind to one another throughout the process, provided three rounds of review and feedback that was refined into 13 Points of “best evidence”.

This scientific process has yielded an unprecedented degree of credibility for specific points of evidence opposing the official account of the events of September 11, 2001.

These Points, developed by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals, offer the media the confidence it needs to promote serious discussion about this world-changing event and its continuing fallout.  The Points, their methodology, and information on the Panel are available at consensus911.org.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. David Ray Griffin, author, Co-founder, 9/11 Consensus Panel

    Ten years after the events of 911, the 911 Truth Movement has massively increased its firepower, with thousands of subject specialists and distinguished academics demanding a real investigation into the attacks.

    Despite this, the media have continued to ignore (except to deride) the 911 Truth Movement, refusing to engage in any kind of examination of the evidence.

    I believe the formation of the 911 Consensus Panel has the potential to change this. Though I am unfamiliar with the Delphi method or reaching consensus, it seems to me that it has the potential to produced evidence that is even more credible than that which has been published to date.

    If so, the pace at which thoughtful people come to acknowledge the truth about 911 and its implications will increase. There must eventually come a point at which it becomes impossible for the mass media to maintain this charade. It is to be hoped that media executives will come to realize that aiding and abetting the cover-up of a crime is surely a crime itself, and that it might be better to adopt a more open approach, if not to change sides.

    The 9/11 events are considered a crime but there has been no forensic investigation. Building Seven at the World Trade Center was obviously demolished with explosives, as were the Twin Towers. This is a crime so enormous that it bewilders and intimidates the masses, which was its purpose. In fact, the 9/11-backed “War On Terror” aimed at Islam is nonsense because only a tiny number of terror crimes have been carried out in the USA by Islamic agitators.

    The attack on Sept 11, 2001 served as a justification for the suspension of civil rights and the further growth of a national security state in a number of countries, not just the U.S. As a Canadian, I have been effected by this, and appalled to see the erosion of civil liberties in my country, and in our neighbour to the south.

    It is pretty clear to me that all of this was based on a massive pretense: that the twin towers and the 47 story building known as World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed due to fires. This contention is utter nonsense, and defies both common sense and physics. Anyone looking with an open and inquiring mind at the videos produced by David Chandler, available on YouTube, can see this: http://www.youtube.com/user/DavidChandler911#p/c/3705E482383CCA91.

    Now, a group of scholars has compiled evidence that can not be dismissed except by those in a state of denial.

    Bravo for this effort.
