Garlic & Grass Discussion

I will be writing an update to this article soon. I am still reviewing the NIST final report released at the end of 2005.
In the meantime, I'd like to respond to some of the comments posted.
To 'Happy to read this':
For me, who did 9/11 has become easy to figure out simply by the process of elimination. All we need to do at this point is eliminate all the people who could not have done it and gotten away with it all this time. That leaves Bush & Co.
As far as starting an organization, we are the organization. It is up to us because, as Mike of Oakland points out above, there is virtually no discussion about 9/11 in a rational sense anywhere in the media, barely any even in the 'left' media, like Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman. It is up to us, We The People, to, as Jello Biafra says, 'become the media'.
Most discussion that does exist is geared toward inflaming irrational emotional response (the "Lee Harvey" Moussaoui trial is a perfect example).
Now, there are some good reasons that most of the journalists are keeping their mouths shut.
If you remember, within weeks of the 9/11 attacks, militarized anthrax was sent to a handful of people. The first was a photo editor from a gossip rag that published photos of one of Bush's daughters stumbling drunk on the sidewalk. He died. Then much of the Democratic leadership got their powdered warnings, as did some of the print and TV news media. Paul Wellstone's plane made a mysterious 90-degree turn moments before landing, crashed, and killed all aboard. Muckraking Journalist Gary Webb 'committed suicide' by shooting himself in the head...twice. Hunter S. Thompson, who told a friend from the Toronto Globe he was about to come out with a story on 9/11 mysteriously shot himself in the head without using a bullet from his gun.
So, most journalists either understand their limits and don't think too much, or they are complicit in the cover-up, leaving it up to us to spread the word.
Also, people like Professor Steven Jones from, of all places, Bringham Young University (Google his name with 9/11), and Professor Judy Wood of Clemson, have taken very brave and courageous stands to expose the truth, literally risking their careers. (Because there is so much military money wrapped up in university engineering and science departments, they too can become dependent on never-ending war.)
Finally, as Pam from WI pointed out, Marvin Bush was a principle of Securacom, the WTC's security firm, and on the board of directors until shortly before 9/11. Also, Wert Walker III, Bush's cousin, was another principle, giving them virtually unlimited access to the building.
Additionally, and part of the reason that they needed to destroy the WTC complex (aside from all the asbestos contaminating the building), they were never able to get much more than 50% occupancy in the buildings. This left about half of each building empty 24/7 to plant whatever they wanted to, whenever they wanted to.
Certainly this explanation makes more sense than the one about 19 guys in caves with sketchy flying skills and box cutters evading our half-trillion-dollar military.
