Pop. Mech.

said the reason WTC 7 fell was because there were no firefighters inside all day.

Yet, who did larry silverstein 'pull'? Dun DUN Dun

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Michael Chertoff's cousin?! Holy Crap!

".. Benjamin Chertoff, who described himself as the "senior researcher" for PM's 911 Debunking article, is a cousin of the new head of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff."

Rofl! No conflict of interest there. (sarcasm)

That and the "hostile take-over at Popular Mechanics headed by a woman whose husband worked for the CIA and Department of Defence" ought to raise some eyebrows.

Good find! *high five*

Re Pop Mechanics' curious connections

I thought I recalled that Chertoff relationship, but I wasn't certain and so didn't want to mention it w/o some confirmation. I've only now learned about the other connection, which I find no less disconcerting.

I love the other comment here re the "senior researcher" for the 911 Debunking article, Benjamin Chertoff, saying he was unsure of whether he was related to Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security under President Bush and co-author of the PATRIOT Act, as if it never happened to come up in conversations among the Chertoff clan... like maybe when they were all together for some holiday, like maybe Passover? I'm referring to the former homeland security czar's dual American and Israeli citizenship, not that he is unusual in that regard.

Funny how the Popular Mechanics folks...

...try to explain away the William Rodriguez account of the explosion and people burned in the lower level as jet fuel and completely ignore it being stressed twice that this was PRIOR to the plane hitting the tower.

Pretty desperate when the creationist and holocaust stuff was brought up to try to marginalize Avery and Burmas.

Good grief.

I have not watch the video yet but let me say this...

I have been reading Popular Mechanics for over 20 years... damn I bet it is more like 30. My dad got the magazine when I was a kid so I started young. That magazine is about 65-70% fantasy. They hear about some tech that is being developed or just some idea and they write a story about it like it will be in the stores tomorrow.
So you are comparing someones hard work putting together a documentary and a science based version of the Onion... ok they are not that bad but you get the point.

Happy disinformation hunting ;)

Popular Mechanic's

exceedingly sad effort is worthy of little more than ridicule.

Popular Mechanic = Dumb Mechanic.

What would the Founders do?

David Ray Griffin makes a far

David Ray Griffin makes a far more powerful case against not only Pop Mechanics, but NIST and the 9/11 Commission as well in his book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking.

David Ray Griffin consulted the Loose Change makers heavily.

The latest Loose Change: An American Coup, is one of the finest documentaries ever.

Here are three links to three important documentaries on the subject, in case anyone has not seen

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Dylan and Jason the young bucks slay the suits.

They won this...hands down.

Thanks for sharing.

God this is dated from 2006....where the hell was I???

BUMP!

Yep from 2006

Like you, I only started paying attention to this very recently.

I suppose better late than never, brother.

There is a critical mass building of people who are beginning to see through the lies.

Geez....never thought I would be a victim of mass-brainwashing, but it makes sense now given that, once I have dislodged myself from the Matrix, that the NSA and the CIA and others have had more than a half a century to perfect the techniques.

The rest of the world is pointing fingers at the so-called "shadow government" that really controls the USA and its violent, abysmal foreign and domestic policies...and now Americans are waking up too.

Ex-neocon here, so you can imagine the consciousness-raising it took for me to break free of the Great Lie and see things for what they really are.

Agreed

It's funny because I was more of a liberal before I "dislodged from the matrix" but we both arrived at the same point anyway. It really goes to show how Ron Paul's "building coalitions" (around truth) thing can work.

sharkhearted's picture

Right on!

Ron Paul like none other has been able to build a coalition and a new enlightened group of Americans, led by young people in this country, who have tossed aside that left-right false paradigm.

Yeah...and the idea that "the truth" can sometimes hurt--really hurt--like the punch in the stomach I felt when I realized that my own government played some role in 9-11.

But once the hurt quickly evaporates...the truth is most liberating...and enraging...and engaging.

Everyone should strive to be a "Truther". The opposite, striving to be a "Lieser"...is complete and utter lunacy.

9-11 "Truther"...and damn proud of it.
