Gage on plans for NY conference
Richard Gage offered the teleconference a report on the plans for a 9/11 conference in New York City on Sept. 10-11. Among the many who will be appearing are Daniel Sheehan, Ferdinando Imposimato, Wayne Madsen, Michael J. Springmann, William Pepper, Graeme MacQueen, and Steven Jones. For more information, go to http://www.eventbrite.com/e/justice-in-focus-911-2016-a-weekend-symposium-in-nyc-tickets-26718651205 Gage also mentioned the launch of Truth Action Project and its website www.911tap.org.
Question ruled out of order
A question by Dave Slesinger to Richard Gage was ruled out of order by the chair because it did not address the topic Gage joined the teleconference to discuss. Dave challenged this, and the vote upheld the chair’s ruling.
Curtiss becomes co-facilitator
Ken Freeland nominated Cheryl Curtiss as co-facilitator of the Teleconference, which was approved without objection. Ken informed the group that Cheryl won’t be involved in moderating calls, but she will use her contacts to find potential guests who could be invited to make presentations on future calls.
The Pentagon and crash tests
Wayne Coste gave a presentation called “Full Scale Aircraft Crash/Impact Tests and their Relevance to 9/11.” He also produced a slide presentation to accompany his talk (http://hopeoutloud.org/pentagon/FullScaleAircraftCrashTests.pdf ).
Critique of Behind the Smoke Curtain
Dennis Cimino gave a nuanced critique of Barbara Honegger’s video Behind the Smoke Curtain.
Third Pentagon debate
After withdrawing from the January 2016 agreement to debate Craig McKee and Adam Ruff on the statement, “A large plane was destroyed at the Pentagon,” Barbara Honegger proposed a new agreement: that she debate Craig alone on the statement, “No plane was destroyed at the Pentagon.” Craig proposed that a vote on this be postponed until after the second part of this agenda item, a review of the breakdown in the previous agreement, was completed. This was approved. After a very contentious exchange ensued about the events in question, a motion was approved to table this entire agenda item.
- Craig McKee announced that on August 10 at the World Social Forum in Montreal there will be a 9/11 presentation featuring Elizabeth Woodworth, Niels Harrit, and Graeme MacQueen.
- Wayne Coste announced that Christopher Bollyn will be coming to Hartford, CT in early September.
