I was reading a 9/11 truth blog for an organization up north, and saw something that kind of shocked me, but on the other hand sadly didn’t. The poster was talking about the new 9/11 truth telling novel, “The Shell Game” from NY Times best selling author, Steve Alten.
The poster’s post, paraphrased was along the lines of, “Gee, this guy isn’t anyone I’ve heard of in the 9/11 movement . . . should we help promote his book?”
Hit me in the head with a sledgehammer if I’m wrong . . . but weren’t we all out in the streets for 6 years, sweating and freezing our tails off leafleting and holding signs while passers by insulted us and flipped us off . . . SO THAT WE COULD GET NEW PEOPLE TO WAKE UP AND JOIN OUR EFFORTS???
I don’t know about you all, but I never got into this because I wanted to be part of the exclusive and elite “smart people’s club who figured out 9/11 a long time ago.”
I worked 10, 12, sometimes 36 hour stretches blasting out 9/11 info to anyone and everyone I could. I collected email addresses for engineering and physics professors, grad students, etc. for most major Western university departments . . . to give them David Ray Griffin, Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, and Richard Gage (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth)’s breaking research. My efforts helped NEW ENGINEERS become aware of this work, and to themselves become 9/11 truth activists.
I DO NOT want to be sitting in some quaint coffee shop 20 years from now with a small group of bitter cloistered fellow 9/11 truthers like some sad little JFK assassination conspiracy reading group at the local library, all talking about how damn smart and elite we are, because only we could figure out this stuff.
NO, I WANT SO MANY PEOPLE TO WAKE UP AND KNOW THAT 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB, THAT NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW OR CARE WHO I WAS OR WHAT I DID. I WANT TO BE A GRAIN IN AN OCEAN OF WHEAT WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH ALONG WITH EVERYONE ELSE.
Because by bursting the 9/11 lie, we can stop these illegal immoral oil wars, and end the permanent wars we’ve been promised. We can pull our military back from the Middle East and stop supporting corrupt leaders there who are whores to the oil companies, and save trillions in saved military spending, not to mention stop our soldiers from coming back forever damaged by being placed in a sad lie of a war.
So, has Steve Alten been out sweating and freezing on corners with me? No. He’s been writing novels, and getting connected with English teachers in high schools across America, and making connections through reading programs with our active troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was busy, so it took him longer to wake up to the lies of 9/11 than I did.
Now, HIS BUSY-NESS AND MY 9/11 WORK CAN COME TOGETHER IN SOME SPECTACULAR MARRIAGE, AS HE NOW PROMOTES DAVID RAY GRIFFIN, NAFEEZ AHMED, AND MIKE RUPPERT’S BOOKS, LOOSE CHANGE’S DOCUMENTARY, 9/11 MYSTERIES, ETC. ETC. . . . AT HIS NEW BOOK’S WEBSITE WWW.THESHELLGAME.NET.
