Media hide truth: 9/11 was inside job- By Kevin Barrett

Last Saturday, former Bush administration official Morgan
Reynolds drew an enthusiastic capacity crowd to the
Wisconsin Historical Society auditorium. It is probably
the first time in Historical Society history that a
political talk has drawn a full house on a Saturday
afternoon at the beginning of final exams.

Reynolds, the former director of the Criminal Justice
Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis, and
the ex-top economist for George W. Bush's Labor Depart-
ment, charged the Bush administration with gross
malfeasance, and proposed the prosecution of top
administration officials.

Normally, if a prestigious UW alumnus and ex-Bush
administration official were to come to the Wisconsin
Historical Society to spill the beans about a Bush
administration scandal, it would make the news. The
local TV stations would cover it, and it would merit
front page headlines in The Capital Times and Wisconsin
State Journal.

Reynolds' indictment of the administration he worked for
was a stunning, life-changing event for many of those who
witnessed it. As the event's organizer, I have received
dozens of e-mails about it from people who were deeply

Despite the prestigious speaker and venue, and the gravity
of the charges aired, for most Americans indeed most
Madisonians the event never happened. Why? Because it was
censored, subjected to a total media blackout. Not a word
in the State Journal. Not a word in The Capital Times. Not
a word on the local TV news. Not a word on local radio
news. And, of course, not a word in the national media.

Why the blackout? Because Reynolds violated the ultimate
U.S. media taboo. He charges the Bush administration with
orchestrating the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for launching
a preplanned "long war" in the Middle East, rolling back
our civil liberties, and massively increasing military

When a former Bush administration insider makes such
charges, how can the media ignore them? Is Reynolds a lone
crank? Hardly. A long list of prominent Americans have
spoken out for 9/11 truth: Rev. William Sloane Coffin,
Sen. Barbara Boxer, former head of the Star Wars program
Col. Robert Bowman, ex-Reagan administration economics guru
Paul Craig Roberts, progressive Jewish author-activist
Rabbi Michael Lerner, former CIA official Ray McGovern,
author-essayist Gore Vidal, and many other respected names
from across the political spectrum have gone on the record
for 9/11 truth.

Are the media ignoring all these people, and dozens more
like them, because there is no evidence to support their
charges? Hardly. Overwhelming evidence, from the obvious
air defense stand-down, to the nonprotection of the
president in Florida, to the blatant controlled demolition
of World Trade Center building 7, proves that 9/11 was an
inside job. As noted philosopher-theologian and 9/11
revisionist historian David Griffin writes: "It is already
possible to know, beyond a reasonable doubt, one very
important thing: the destruction of the World Trade Center
was an inside job, orchestrated by terrorists within our
own government."

A growing list of scientists has lined up behind BYU
physicist Steven Jones and MIT engineer Jeff King in
support of Griffin's position, as evidenced by the growth
of Scholars for 9/11 Truth ( and Scientific
Professionals Investigating 9/11 (

As a Watergate-era graduate of the University of Wisconsin
School of Journalism, I was taught that exposing government
lies and corruption is the supreme duty of the Fourth
Estate. I simply cannot fathom the current situation. I do
not understand the 9/11 truth blackout. I wish someone
would explain it to me.
It is time to break the 9/11 truth blackout. Please put
pressure on your local media through letters to the editor,
call-ins to talk radio, and phone calls to local and
national journalists.

And come see Peter Phillips, director of the media watchdog
group Project Censored, who will lead a strategy session on
breaking the blackout at the upcoming international 9/11
truth conference in Chicago: 9/11: Revealing the Truth,
Reclaiming Our Future, to be held June 2-4 at the Embassy
Suites Hotel, Chicago-O'Hare Rosemont. Go to for more information.

The event will feature presentations from dozens of 9/11
truth luminaries, from scientists like Steven Jones to
intelligence agency whistle-blowers like David Shayler,
and promises to be a historic, watershed event. Be there,
or resign yourself to a future of endless war, lost liberty,
and a craven media that cannot bring itself to breathe a
single word of truth.
