9.11 investigation

What happened to 911 Meetups?

While previously weak & coy, the 9-11 meetup system has dumbed & watered down to a shocking degree the name and description of the 911 related meetup. Actually, it's worse than that.
Meeting other actual human beings in person is kind of a necessary ingredient for any movement. It certainly can be inspiring. The meetup website:  http://9-11.meetup.com/ is the only pre-organized way I know of to meet in the flesh other people who believe 9-11 was an inside job, other than finding out about and attending 9-11 related presentations in your area. The meetings are held the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. (The next one is August 19th). But what has happened to 911 meetup?

While previously weak & coy, the 9-11 meetup system has dumbed & watered down to a shocking degree the name and description of the 911 related meetup. Actually, it's worse than that.

Formerly, the 911 meetup was called "International 9/11 Questions Meetup Day" and described itself as:

"a meetup with other locals who have concerns about the still unanswered questions of 9/11. Meetup for support and discussion on the controversial topic."

Now, they are actually calling it "International 9/11 Commission Meetup Day", and describing it as:

"a meetup with other citizens who want to discuss and work on the ideas and questions of the 9/11 Commission Report. Meetup for support and possible action on this critical topic."

How very fucking quaint, not to mention libelous, actually indicating that there are "ideas" in the Report, and speaking not of questioning the Report, but of questions the Report itself asks. Does anyone know who is responsible for this change, and who wrote this text? This truly is an outrage. The 9-11 meetup is now effectively being described as a group for people who want to get together to help implement the Commission's recommendations!!!!!!! The individual groups should make changing this a top priority. (And I note that the meetup website has message boards for members to communicate in between meetings, although nobody seems to be currently using this feature.) I'd like to actually hear somebody try and describe this as an effective strategy for the 911 "truth" movement. Nobody told me it was time to go underground. This is just a guess, but a truth movement that's too scared to speak the truth may not have a lot of success.

Maybe someone who has the time and energy can step forward and come up with a parrallel internet way for 9-11 inside jobbers to meet in person.

The New Pearl Harbor Discussion Circle 09.Aug.2004 18:11


Don't know about 9-11 Meetup, but there'll be a gathering of "The New Pearl Harbor Discussion Circle" Thursday August 12, 6:30-8:30 PM, in the main conference room of the Central Library (801 SW 10th).

This is for people who either have read "The New Pearl Harbor" by David Ray Griffin or who otherwise know about the gross discrepencies between the outrageous "official" version(s) and the actual events of 9/11/01. The purpose is to give each other support and explore the roots of, implications of, and possible solutions to the real causes of 9/11, as well as explore possible answers to the question, "OK, where do we go from here??", all in a mutually respectful atmosphere.

Change suggestion 10.Aug.2004 16:05


9/11 meetup change ->"9/11 Inside Job"
9/11meetup board
"9/11 Was An Inside Job"
Meetup with other locals who have been reading the works of independent researchers for the last 3 years and have come to the conclusion that the government was involved in the September 11th attacks so as to have a pretext to start the wars that will not end in our lifetimes and to restrict our civil liberties.

Please everyone support:)

"911 Was an Inside Job," yes 10.Aug.2004 19:14

I vote for calling the local Thursday 911 meet-ups

911 Was an Inside Job,

as New York did.

This "Pearl Harbor" stuff a deliberate ambiguity for a book title or a meetup. It's neither honest, nor descriptive.

Pearl Harbor is a cliche' of the official line.

We'll forgive Dr. Griffin, who has to survive on the Claremont campus, a bastion of liberal political correctness. I doubt if the FDR-let-it-happen theory is part of the history curricula at the Claremont colleges. Nor September Eleventh 101.
