Never underestimate the power of the Internet and social and their ability to mobilize the masses and shake governments. Recently the US Administration learnt this the hard way following the release online of thousands of secret official diplomatic cables by Wikileaks – a stunt which rattled both the White House and Congress.
On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the American government is facing another potential calamity directly related to the horrific destruction of the World Trade Centre towers allegedly by two airplanes piloted by terrorists. Unlike the Wikileaks saga which received widespread media coverage, the international press and, in particular, the US corporate media, for some reason are not so keen to report on this storm looming on the horizon. Nevertheless, word is getting out thanks to the internet and social media.
The Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth), a non-profit corporation comprising of 1,564 architectural and engineering professionals, along with 13,041 other supporters have signed a petition demanding that Congress carry out a “truly independent investigation” of the terrorist attack, with subpoena power.
“Our mission is to research, compile, and disseminate scientific evidence relative to the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers, calling for a truly open and independent investigation and supporting others in the pursuit of justice,” said the group in a statement on their website. Like many other Americans, they are challenging their government’s account of the 9/11 tragedy.
“We believe that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that [the] three World Trade Center buildings #1 (North Tower), #2 (South Tower), and #7 (the 47-story high-rise across Vesey St.) were destroyed not by jet impact and fires but by controlled demolition with explosives.”
AE911Truth know better than to rely on the traditional media to help get their message out. Instead, they’re taking their case directly to the public and going to great lengths to explain the evidence they’ve amassed, doing so with the help of documentaries streamed onlne and DVDs. “We believe that turning the tide of public opinion is the most powerful way to convince Congress to pursue a new investigation,” says AE911Truth. Their campaign is a textbook example of how to use the internet to hold governments to account.
Check out their new and superbly professional 15-minute video posted on YouTube. It’s narrated by Ed Asner, President of the Screen Actors Guild and features several experts and structural engineers explaining why the World Trade Centre high-rises could not have collapsed as a result of fire. It’s a MUST SEE.
