Veteran firefighter Erik Lawyer, and founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, architect Richard Gage, AIA, and founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and controlled demolition expert and former employee of Controlled Demolitions Inc, Tom Sullivan, discussed the undeniable evidence that 9/11 was an inside job on KPFA’s Guns and Butter on April 28, 2010. They also did a public lecture together on May 7 and May 8, 2010 in San Rafael and San Leandro, California called, "9/11 Myths Exposed: Firefighters, Architects and Engineers Re-investigate the Destruction of the Three World Trade Center Skyscrapers." You can watch their three hour lecture on the internet by clicking here.

On June 24, 2010, Darcy Wearing and Richard Gage released an article called "Explosive Evidence at WTC Cited by Former CDI Employee," that highlighted Mr. Sullivan’s background, and expertise in the controlled demolition business. They write:

And as Sullivan watched the towers collapse that day, like so many did, he pondered at how fast it all took place, and how suddenly and symmetrically they were brought down. "I knew it was an explosive event as soon as I saw it, there was no question in my mind," said Sullivan. Most of us agree — it’s not by chance that the first tower just happened to collapse — then the second in the same manner. What convinced him completely is when he watched Tower 7 fall that day, "I mean, come on, it was complete destruction. I’ve seen buildings fall like that for years — that was the end game for me."

Sullivan’s public statements about 9/11 are reflective of private concerns of employees in one of the world’s leading civil engineering and construction firms. According to a veteran Middle East reporter, Alan Hart, demolition experts in the firm, who are also his friends, told him straightforward that the towers were not brought down by airplanes, or fires, but by "controlled ground explosion."

Paul Craig Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and a former editor of Wall Street Journal, wrote in an article on September 15, 2009 called, "Why Propaganda Trumps Truth":

Another problem that the 9/11 Truth Movement faces is that few people have the education to follow the technical and scientific aspects. The side that they believe tells them one thing; the side that they don’t believe tells them another. Most Americans have no basis to judge the relative merits of the arguments.

Roberts’s point reflects poorly on Americans, but it is true. The claim that fires can bring down giant buildings was accepted as correct by a majority of the American people. The U.S. media’s blatant propaganda in the immediate wake of the 9/11 crime definitely played a huge role, but stupidity is the larger factor. The American mind is like dough, and it was shaped by government terrorists for their own ends. But thanks to the efforts by Richard Gage, Tom Sullivan, and Erik Lawyer, the technical and scientific aspects of the official 9/11 story are being challenged, and their easy and publicly digestible lectures is giving the American people a new perspective on what happened on 9/11.

Lev Grossman, author of the novel "The Magicians," wrote in an article for Time magazine on September 3, 2006 called, "Why the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories Won’t Go Away":

You would have thought the age of conspiracy theories might have declined with the rise of digital media. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was a private, intimate affair compared with the attack on the World Trade Center, which was witnessed by millions of bystanders and television viewers and documented by hundreds of Zapruders. You would think there was enough footage and enough forensics to get us past the grassy knoll and the magic bullet, to create a consensus reality, a single version of the truth, a single world we can all live in together.

But there is no event so plain and clear that a determined human being can’t find ambiguity in it. And as divisive as they are, conspiracy theories are part of the process by which Americans deal with traumatic public events like Sept. 11. Conspiracy theories form around them like scar tissue. In a curious way, they’re an American form of national mourning. They’ll be with us as long as we fear lone gunmen, and feel the pain of losses like the one we suffered on Sept. 11, and as long as the past, even the immediate past, is ultimately unknowable. That is to say, forever.

Grossman’s pseudo psychological understanding of mass trauma, and collective memory makes the article fascinatingly stupid. The work done by American Professor Steven Jones, and Danish Professor Niels Harrit in the scientific field proves that the 9/11 crime is not "unknowable" as Grossman claims. The past is never dead. The reading of the past has always been a organic process in history. And it is wrongheaded to say that 9/11 belongs in the dustbin of history, because it is still being justified by the U.S. government for ongoing wars of aggression. We don’t live in a "post-9/11" world, as some like to have it, but in a "9/11" world. We live in a state of emergency. And that is not an exaggeration.
