9/11 Vancouver Hearings Updated

“It’s not what you don’t know that hurts you, it’s what you think you know that ain’t so.”
— Will Roger

This will be an interesting event, and should set the record straight on some important aspects of 9/11 that are often misunderstood and/or dismissed by many people, including the (misnamed) "planes/no planes" debate, how the World Trade Center Towers were destroyed, issues relating to the alleged passengers, and many other important angles of the 9/11 puzzle. If you are really serious about understanding what did and did not happen on 9/11, you will want to attend this conference. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it, but am looking forward to seeing the videos of the event and will post them here on this blog when they become available.

The Denman Theatre
15-17 June 2012


  • The official account provided by the United States government is false
  • The search for truth requires that all possibilities be considered without prejudice
  • Theories must be compared on the basis of the relative probability of the evidence if they were true, where those with higher likelihoods thus defined are preferable to those with lower, where, when the evidence has “settled down”, the theory with the highest likelihood is “acceptable” in the tentative and fallible fashion of science
Theories in science consist of sets of laws combined with dictionary definitions, where the laws of the sciences can be used to explain and to predict the phenomena of experience. Establishing laws entails a process of sorting out the relevant properties from irrelevant via controlled experiments. Applying them entails deriving what happens when their initial conditions are realized, given the initial conditions that were present at the time. In this context, think of these theories as causes in relation to the evidence as their effects. The question thus becomes, “Which of these causes would have the greatest potential to explain the evidence as their effects?”, as an inference to the best explanation.

In case that sounds imposing, it is the same pattern of reasoning that police employ in the course of their investigation of crimes. Suppose that we have a male corpse with bruises around its neck, but no bullet holes or knife wounds. What is the probability that he was stabbed (shot or strangled) relative to that evidence? Because the probability of having no knife wounds if he was stabbed is zero, the likelihood that he was stabbed is also zero. Similarly the probability of having no bullet wounds if he had been shot is zero, so that he was shot likewise has a likelihood of zero.

Given the presence of bruises on the neck, however, there clearly would be a non-zero likelihood that he was strangled. With the accumulation of more evidence during an autopsy, it might turn out that the bruising was not the cause of death but that he was actually poisoned. The same pattern of reasoning applies to the events of 9/11. Ask, for example, if the Twin Towers collapsed, what is the probability that they would blow apart in every direction from the top down? Insofar as gravity works in only one direction, down, while explosives blow out in every direction, the likelihood that the towers collapsed is low, while the use of explosives is high.

Knowing that the Twin Towers did not collapse does not explain exactly how it was done, much less by whom and why. Consideration of the rate of destruction and of various residual effects, including upon other buildings and vehicles in the vicinity, offers clues as to how it was done which, in turn, can provide clues about the who and the why, where this conference will compare conventional explosives with exotic accelerants, including nano-thermite, with mini-nukes and with directed energy devices to determine which can best explain the totality of the evidence.

Similar questions will be asked about the hijackers, the planes, and the passengers. What is the probability, if the hijackers were real, that five or six would show up alive and well? If the flights were real, what is the probability two of them were not scheduled to fly that day and the other two not deregistered until four years later? If the passengers were real, what is the probability that all of their phone calls were faked? If these planes actually crashed, what is the probability of no evidence of plane crashes at Shanksville and elsewhere? We will address these questions and more.

Perhaps the most encompassing description of The Vancouver Hearings, therefore, is to expand the boundaries of 9/11 Truth by exploring the most complex and controversial of the issues confronting us, from what did or did not happen at the Pentagon, the possible use of exotic and unfamiliar technologies to destroy the Twin Towers, the exploitation of the mass media to convey false impressions about what happened that day, and up to a consideration of the motives and ideologies that brought 9/11 about to instill fear into the American public and manipulate them for political purposes.

The Denman Theatre, 15-17 June 2012
1737 Comox Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Organizers: James H. Fetzer, Ph.D., and Joshua Blakeney

McKnight Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth, Jim is the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, edited its first book, THE 9/11 CONSPIRACY (2007), organized its first conference, “The Science and Politics of 9/11″ (Madison) and produced its first DVD.

Graduate student at the University of Lethbridge, 9/11 activist, Staff Writer at Veterans Today, and now the Canadian correspondent for PressTV, Josh was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarship to study “The Origins of the Global War on Terror”.

PROGRAM: 5 PM—Doors Open. 6-10 PM—Speakers, Discussion, and Debate

“When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth” — Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and to move beyond the “official account” of 9/11:

  • That 19 Islamic fundamentalists hijacked four commercial carriers–Flights AA #11, AA #77, United #93, and United #175–outfoxed the most sophisticated air defense system in the world, and perpetrated these atrocities under the control of a guy in a cave in Afghanistan.
  • That two of those planes, both Boeing 767s, were flown into the Twin Towers, where the combination of damage from their impacts, the jet-fuel based fires and those that endured, weakened the steel and caused both of them to collapse in about 10 seconds apiece.
  • That at 5:20 PM that afternoon, another enormous building in the World Trade Center complex, known as WTC-7, also collapsed due to fires inside the building, even though it had not been hit by any plane and had no jet-fuel based fires.
  • That the Pentagon was hit by a Boeing 757 that approached on a northeastern trajectory at around 500 mph and, just skimming the ground and taking out multiple lampposts, created a spectacular fireball and extensive damage, with 125 casualties at the building itself.
  • That another Boeing 757 crashed in Shanksville, after the passengers heroically attempted to regain control, which we know from phone calls they made–as others had made from other planes–where this plane virtually disappeared into the very soft earth.
  • That the government identified the 19 hijackers almost immediately, where 15 were from Saudi Arabia and the number from Iraq was none, where these events were used to justify wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan, the passage of the PATRIOT ACT, and the on-going “War on Terror”.

The probity of these sworn presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges, who will swear in our speakers, offer informal opinions at the conclusion of the conference and prepare their evaluation of the hearings in formal opinions for later publication, including:

  1. That's a very diverse group. I'm glad to see Jeff Prager, Donald Fox and Alan Sabrosky there. The big question is "Where do we go from here?"

  2. You're exactly right kenny. I've been saying we should be organizing press releases calling for these bastards to be arrested immediately, and really getting in the faces of our political "leaders".

    We could be calling for all those Israelis arrested on 9/11 to be extradited to the US for prosecution. We could be calling for Dov Zakheim and his missing $2.3 trillions to be investigated and arrested. Same with all the other criminals running the Pentagon. We could be calling for the arrest of Silverstein and his criminal associates who profited enormously off the destruction of the towers. We could be calling for a complete seizure of the corporate Jewish owned and controlled mainstream media for their complicity in 9/11. I could go on and on here.

    We need to do this in an organized way, but I've ran into all sorts of problems bringing this stuff up here in SD. Most seem satisfied pointing out all the obvious flaws and lies in the official story, and trying to "wake people up", as if that is going to really change anything. I suppose we need more people on board with the facts, but we need to take a more aggressive approach in an organized, systematic way.

  3. Isn't it interesting that the Emet Group is never mentioned...in relation to 9/11 ?

    Reported by Joel C. Rosenberg in Worldmag.com - 18 August 2001..in Flash Traffic Political Buzz from Washington...odd isn't it.

    Means - Motive & Opportunity...

    Very Similiar to the fact that the so-called USGOV [ZOG] had already written the anti-terrorism legislation before the OKC BOMBING..


    The Physics totally destroy the Zionist Terrorist Conspiracy theory

    Someone on Earth, in America should send and RSVP to this Buck..


    - In Good Faith.

    Good Luck with that.

    To Quote Wayne Martin..."When you reject Truth you place yourself in Judgement."

    Truth & Justice = Peace


  4. Please listen to my interview with Jim Fetzer, Joshua Blakeney, Webster Tarpley and Greg Felton in support of the 9/11 Vancouver Hearings, an UNBELIEVABLE show:
