Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
Written by Andy Steele
For several months supporters of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth have been dialing into C-SPAN's morning call-in show, Washington Journal, to confront members of Congress, the media, and others with the scientific evidence proving that pre-planted explosives brought down the Twin Towers and World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11. Some callers have implored legislators to support a new investigation into the complete, rapid destruction of all three modern steel skyscrapers.
October 20, 2013, Diana Degette, (D-CO), appeared as a guest on the morning show. Questioning Congress's credibility, a caller asked:On
"My question is concerning credibility of Congress in all of this. What credibility does Congress have left to govern with when basic physics have already proven that Building 7, World Trade Center 7, was brought down by explosives on 9/11, and the majority of Congressmen are willingly ignorant of this fact or can only offer rehearsed outrage in response to direct questions about this evidence?"
This caller has obviously been done his homework. He made it very difficult for the Representative to sidestep or express indignancy at the question. Degette replied:
"I think Congress's credibility has suffered quite a bit in recent weeks with the shutdown of the government and one thing that we can do about the issues you've raised, and all of the other issues... We can start working together to, for example, make the Affordable Care Act work [sic], and if there's allegations around the World Trade Center, to investigate those fully, and people really need to start working together...for the good of the country. I really believe that.”
Given that many members of Congress have proven to be hesitant to offer real answers or to provide any substantial concern on the issue of Building 7 when questioned about the evidence, Degette's response would surely be welcomed by the thousands of building professionals and scientific experts who have signed AE911Truth's petition.
Her acknowledgement illustrates how a better understanding of the one of the most significant tragedies in U.S. history is simply common sense. Since so much of the United States' unprecedented loosening of restraints on surveillance at home and the use of lethal force overseas have been justified in the name of 9/11 over the past twelve years, any scientifically substantiated evidence related to the event should be examined fully by those tasked with overseeing our security.
An even more positive response came from Congressman Charles Dent (R-PA) on November 13, when a caller asked him the equally insightful following question:
"Can you please explain, Charlie, to viewers why people in Congress are ignoring the obvious evidence that Building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition on 9/11 and why they won't simply call for a new investigation of its destruction, without pointing any fingers at any party, just to address the technical aspects of the issue?"
The Congressman replied:
"...I'm very much interested in this issue. I served on the Homeland SecurityCommittee. I will be happy to look at the issues surrounding Building 7. We certainly saw the North and South tower go down shortly after the strike. I would be happy to take a look at the Building 7 issue. I am very much concerned about what's happened on 9/11. We're all deeply affected by it, and I would be happy to look at the Building 7 issue further."
Dent's three positive responses, in one, was one of the most forthcoming so far of any member of Congress who has been questioned publicly about the issue.
The effort to confront Congress and the media with the 9/11 controlled demolition evidence on national television sends a message to the establishment's collective mind that the questions surrounding the building destructions in New York on 9/11 are not going away, and that influential members of the government and the press can't hide from, or even successfully sidestep the issue without risk of appearing disingenuous.
The silence and deliberate obfuscation of the evidence over the last decade by those whom Americans once trusted to look out for their best interests have forced citizens to step up and push back. In light of these two recent answers from Reps. Degette and Dent, the question is: When will other members of Congress adopt similar positions toward the evidence for controlled demolition, and call for a full investigation of the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7? The answer? When you, individually, take the initiative to pressure them.
That is why we are asking you to help us hold Congress accountable in 2014. Order a copy of the same VIP Pack that AE911Truth team members dropped off or mailed to every member of Congress in September. Familiarize yourself with its contents so that you can confidently and competently ask follow-up questions of congressional staffers and try to set up in-person meetings between the member of Congress and our experts.
If you would like to help us encourage members of Congress and their staffs to review the WTC scientific evidence, contact Congressional Outreach Team Leader Wayne Coste, P.E.
