The corporate media's assault on Rashard Mendenhall is continuing, publicly crucifying the man over his tweets on May 1st, 2011 when Osama bin Laden's alleged kill by Navy Seal Team 6 was announced. While drumming up contrived outrage over the fact that Mendenhall questioned whether or not it was right for cheering crowds to be celebrating a person's death, the media is also asserting that it is somehow unpatriotic and "disrespectful to the 9/11 victims' families" to question the collapse of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7, which was not hit by an airplane but collapsed completely in free fall. (See the video below)
At this stage it is mostly sports writers that are maintaining this attack. While invoking 9/11 families and patriotism in their diatribes, many writers are saying that Rashard Mendenhall shouldn't have commented on matters which he knew nothing about. In this regard, these writers should follow their own advice because it's clear from their articles that they themselves know nothing about the subject of which they are writing, and that Rashard Mendenhall is more educated on the matter than they are.
First, the myth that questioning the government's explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 on 9/11 is somehow disrespectful to the victims' families is designed to instill immediate guilt into the person that does so and strengthen the emotional brick wall of this manufactured taboo. In fact, there are a number of 9/11 victims' family members who have the same questions about the improbable collapses, and are even more vocal about them than Rashard Mendenhall was in his tweets. They have formed a group called "Remember Building 7" (Formerly Building What?). Their commercial has run in New York City and the organization has been featured on Fox News. (See the clips below) This group includes Pennsylvania resident Bob McIlvain who lost his son in one of the towers on 9/11.
Second, unlike sports writers who have had their nationalistic views fed to them by Army commercials played during TV timeouts, Rashard Mendenhall's questions about the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 are backed by (as of this writing) 1,497 verified architectural and engineering professionals. Their names and backgrounds can be viewed on the petition they've signed HERE.
Along with its scientifically credentialed supporters, the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth currently includes 11,972 other supporters and volunteers (including myself). It has successfully raised awareness of this issue, even holding a press conference in Washington DC last year with former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel in which evidence for the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 was presented. The head of the organization--Richard Gage--has travelled the world educating people about the science of 9/11 and the impossibility of the government's story. The film "Blueprint for Truth" features Gage's 2 hour presentation and can currently be viewed for free on Google Video. (Click HERE to watch).
Investigators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have been forced to acknowledge the free-fall descent of WTC 7. As well, according to AE911Truth's press release for the conference in Washington DC last September:
* The Twin Towers suffered total destruction in 10 to 14 seconds in near free-fall accelerations which can only occur as a result of pre-set demolition explosives.
* More than 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes consistent with pre-set demolitions.
* 90,000 tons of concrete and metal decking was pulverized in mid-air, creating the signature dust clouds of controlled demolitions.
* A massive debris field 1,400 feet in diameter, along with the absence of "pancaked" floors, indicates a very explosive destruction of each tower.
* The presence of several tons of molten metal found in the debris is consistent with the extreme temperatures generated by the use of thermite -- an incendiary used to cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.
* An international team of scientists found nano-thermitic composite material in World Trade Center dust samples, providing hard evidence of the presence of advanced energetic materials in the disaster debris.
Whether or not he meant to step into an ongoing national controversy, the fact is that Rashard Mendenhall is on the right side of it. Claiming that somebody is wrong for questioning the government's explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 is like saying 2+2=5. Though it's clear that a large number of the nation's political and scientific journalists have chosen to either ignore this inconvenient evidence, lie to themselves, or participate in a cover-up, the clearly demonstrated ignorance of America's sports writers most likely has less to do with intellectual dishonesty than the fact that most of the country itself has fallen under a dangerous net of neurotic mass denial-- of which these writers are a part-- refusing to look at the reality of extremely dark truths and their implications.
