Science Applied to the WTC Collapses

9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out
On Sunday, September 24th, in Berkeley California, Pacifica radio station KPFA ( www.kpfa.org ) hosted editors and contributors to the book, "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out." Speakers included Dr. David Ray Griffin, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, Dr. Peter Phillips, Kevin Ryan and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, discussion moderator. The event was the first event involving the questioning of the official version of the 9/11 attacks that the KPFA radio station has ever sponsored. It was later replayed on C-SPAN2 Book TV in November of 2006 The event was sold out and still turned away over 100 people at the door. Much of those in attendance were first time listeners to the details of the potential role of insiders in the attacks of 9/11/01 and expressed shock at some of the information presented. Presenters assessed the Bush administration's responsibility for the attacks on 9/11 and suggested that the attacks were used to enact long established plans to expand the American empire.
