Videos about 9/11
Dear Editor:”It is not merely the opinion of the editorial writer, or of the columnist, which is protected by the First Amendment. It is the free flow of information so that the public will be informed about the Government and its actions.” – Murray Gurfein, former United States district judge, 1971. The time is long overdue to make information available to the public that questions the official government story of the events surrounding Sept. 11, 2001. To that end, an organization called Citizens For 9/11 Truth will be presenting videos on that topic. The first showing will be on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 1 p.m., in the basement of the Glenwood Springs Library, 413 Ninth St. It is free and open to the public (not sponsored by the library).I encourage anyone from Parachute to Aspen who is interested in this subject and wants to show videos in your community, to contact me at 945-1030. I will provide copies of the videos and help coordinate our joint efforts.This first video, which aired on C-SPAN 2 in 2005, will be a presentation by David Ray Griffin, who was a professor of theology, philosophy and religion for 31 years. After 9/11, he began an intensive study of U.S. imperialism. In the course of that investigation he came across evidence suggesting that the attacks of 9/11 may have been arranged by the Bush administration as a pretext to further its imperialistic goals. Out of this study he wrote “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11.”He has written another book, “The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions,” which is the subject of this video. Dr. Griffin is a courageous scholar who presents his findings in a calm, logical and dispassionate tone. Please join us and bring an open mind.Steve CampbellGlenwood Springs
