The minutes of the January 27, 2016 conference call were APPROVED
The agenda was amended to allow Andy Steele time to respond to Dave Slesinger’s comments about AE911Truth. The amended agenda was APPROVED.
Dr. Mary’s Monkey presentation
Cat McGuire announced our guest speaker for the call, Ed Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey. Haslam gave a fascinating presentation on the contents of the book.
Expansion of debate length
It was agreed that the April 27 debate between Barbara Honegger and Craig McKee/Adam Ruff on what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11 would be the only item on the agenda for that call. The decision was made to increase the time for the debate itself to up to one hour with questions and discussion of up to 30 minutes.
Survey regarding teleconference
Facilitator Ken Freeland asked teleconference participants to respond to the survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2KZBD75) on the subject of whether changes should be made to the scheduling or frequency of future teleconferences.
Ken Freeland raised the possibility that other topics could be debated on future calls. Dave Slesinger proposed a debate on whether AE911Truth has become an “encrusted bureaucracy.” As of this writing, no one has offered to take the negative position.
Because of the length of the call, Robin Hordon agreed to postpone his presentation on aviation issues related to 9/11 but he was given a few moments to introduce the topic.
Complaint about AE911Truth
Dave Slesinger offered critical comments about AE911Truth’s policy of denying others access to the contact information of petition signatories. Andy Steele responded on behalf of AE911Truth.
- Dave Slesinger asked if anyone would be willing to work with him in approaching Professor Zdeněk Bažant of Northwestern University who has written papers supportive of the 9/11 official story. Wayne Coste said he is trying to get the American Society of Civil Engineers to retract four papers that are not scientifically valid, and he would also like help with this.
- Cat McGuire asked that participants support Newsbud, a new alternative news outlet being started by Sibel Edmonds, James Corbett, and others. Newsbud can be supported financially by going to the Kickstarter fundraising page. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/141490519/support-a-100-people-funded-nonpartisan-online-new
- Barbara Honegger announced that she has tentatively decided to run for Congress in the 20th Congressional District, California, on a 9/11 truth ticket. She would be running against Jimmy Panetta, son of former CIA director Leon Panetta.
