UQ Wire: The 9/11 Truth Movement
The 9/11 Truth Movement

Sander Hicks, September 9, 2004
"The climax arrives this week!” That’s the way the New York 9/11 Truth web site announced a series of events examining the unanswered questions of 9/11 that kicked off today at Manhattan’s Symphony Space. More events are planned, leading up to a major panel discussion at the Manhattan Ballroom on Saturday, Sept. 11 (for more info see the Summer of Truth web site).
Dubbed “The Omission Hearings,” today’s panel was hosted by former Congresswoman and fulltime rebel rouser Cynthia McKinney. McKinney opened by saying, “I’m finally on a commission where it’s alright to ask questions.” She added, “We have no political ideology but the truth. The truth about America’s tragedy belongs to all of us.”
Today’s panel also included John Judge, co-founder of 9/11 Citizens Watch and chief author of the coming "9/11 Omissions Report,” a detailed of counter-narrative to the best-selling official 9/11 Commission report. As Judge explained, the official report was more than just a cover-up, it was an “exoneration” - each chapter draft was sent to the White House to be vetted before it was set to print. There are no redacted passages in the final report, he said, because it had, in a sense, been pre-redacted. Judge told the audience of about 300 that the report could be considered to be at least partially written by the very people it was investigating.
Also testifying were:
- Jenna Orkin, a member of the World Trade Center Environmental Organization, a group investigating the environmental disaster of Sept. 11 and subsequent cover-up.
- Barrie Zwicker, Vision TV, Canada, who discussed the history of false provocations and pretexts for war.
- Michael Ruppert, the former LAPD Narcotics Investigator, and publisher of www.fromthewilderness.com, and author of the coming book, Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.
- Paul Thompson, author of The Complete 9/11 Timeline, the leading online resource for 9/11 research, whose new book from Harper Collins, The Terror Timeline: A Comprehensive Chronicle of the Road to 9/11, represents the antidote to the official report.
Was 9/11 a U.S. government plot? Did Bush know and just do nothing to stop it? They may sound like crazy conspiracy theories (and they may turn out to be), but GNN invites our readers to investigate the facts themselves. The above sources are the best places to start (also see Chapter 3 of our new book True Lies).
Earlier this summer, GNN asked writer and INN correspondent Sander Hicks to give us an overview of the growing movement. Here is what he found:
The 9/11 Truth Movement
When GNN asked me to report on the "9/11 Truth Movement," I shuddered. How can one attempt to describe this fractious, nation-wide phenomenon of disparate researchers and activists, spread far and wide, but tied umbillically on the web? This amorphous network of folks has only recently become known as "The 9/11 Truth Movement" and even that general term is sort of a stretch. The "movement" has displayed a tendency to stop its work, fragment into sharp sects and bitter rivalries. Can loner net junkies unify into truth warriors and turn the tide of history?
