Elizabeth Woodworth is the co-author (with David Ray Griffin) of 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation. Sociology prof Edward Curtin has called it “the definitive book on the defining event of the 21st century.”
Alongside Curtin’s outstanding review, we must also mention the extraordinary review by another professor, Philip Roddis, who had always scoffed at the 9/11 truth movement until 9/11 Unmasked fell into his hands. (Dr. Griffin himself has published an appreciation of Roddis’s review.)
In this interview Elizabeth Woodworth and I discuss the Consensus Panel’s methodology and why it is important; which issues were easy or difficult to build a consensus around; the rise of censorship in general and the possibility that Amazon has tried to throttle this book in particular; her reflections on working with David Ray Griffin; and much more.
Our discussion of political and military leaders’ incriminating actions on 9/11 mentions: George W. Bush hanging around a school reading about pet goats and dallying for almost a full hour at a pre-announced location and route despite the alleged “surprise attack”; Cheney telling radically different stories about his whereabouts; Rumsfeld likewise spreading contradictory stories designed to foster the impression (or reality?) that he was “out of the loop”: plus similarly incriminating contradictions in the various cover stories of Brig. Gen. Montague Winfield, Deputy Director of Operations on the National Military Command Center; the actual and acting heads of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Hugh Shelton and Richard Myers; Ralph Eberhart, the head of NORAD (which supposedly failed abysmally in its mission to prevent such an attack, though nobody was ever punished in any way for the monstrous failure); and finally, the case of Trump’s lawyer and then NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, who let it slip in an ABC News interview that he knew in advance that the Towers were going to “collapse.”
NOTE: I AM TRAVELING IN MOROCCO AND EUROPE, AS DISCUSSED IN THE SHOW, AND WILL RETURN TO MY FULL RADIO SCHEDULE IN MID-OCTOBER.
