OPEN LETTER TO U.S. MEDIA, and specifically ABC and AP:

Dear ABC News and Associated Press,

In the Aug. 6 AP article, "9/ 11 Conspiracy Theorists
Thriving" reprinted on abcnews.go.com THERE ARE SOME
PROBLEMS WITH YOUR COVERAGE.
http://abcnews.go.com/us/wirestory?id=2279963
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/s/sept_11_conspiracies?site=ktvk §ion=home&template=default


Below are identified three of those problems.

1) -------------------------------------------
For example, in the 3rd paragraph you state:

"Five years after the terrorist attacks, a community
that believes widely discredited ideas about what
happened on Sept. 11, 2001, persists and even
thrives."

PROBLEM: the term "widely discredited" is a laughable
slap at the 9/11 truth movement given the breaking
news of:

-- Wednesday, August 2, 2006 WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A
member of the 9/11 commission said Wednesday that
panel members so distrusted testimony from Pentagon
officials that they referred their concerns to the
Pentagon's inspector general. "We were extremely
frustrated with the false statements we were getting,"
Roemer told CNN. "We were not sure of the intent,
whether it was to deceive the commission or merely
part of the fumbling bureaucracy."

THE 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT was raising hell when
testimony to the 9/11 Commission by the FAA and DOD
conflicted, and the 9/11 truth community demanded
answers THEN. Where was the media, who should have
been demanding answers THEN?

-- On C-SPAN's "Theories of 9/11", Steven Jones of BYU
Physics Dept. announced that THERMATE traces were
found on WTC debris in analysis of the debris. Two
independantly obtained samples BOTH contained
thermate. As your article states, thermate is a
patented explosive used for controlled demolition.
HAS AP OR ABC OR ANY MEDIA HAD ANY TRACES ANALYZED?
IF NOT, WHY NOT?
IF SO, AND YOU FOUND THERMATE, WHY ISN'T THIS A 6 INCH HEADLINE, AND NIGHTLY NEWS HEADLINE?

2) -------------------------------------------
In the 6th paragraph you state:

"Fetzer, a retired philosophy professor at the
University of Minnesota Duluth, who maintains, among
other claims, that some of the hijackers are still
alive."

PROBLEM:
Your statement leaves readers to believe that ONLY
Fetzer believes this.

"Hijack 'suspects' alive and well
Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in
the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has
turned up alive and well.

The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of
having carried out the attacks are now in doubt.
