9-11 Story Examined with Screening of AfterMath: Unanswered Questions from 9-11

The official version of the events of 9-11 were examined and dissected by eminent researchers after last night's screening of AfterMath: Unanswered questions from 911
April 22

SAN FRANCISCO — Hundreds of people were left in the cold last night in a vain attempt to get in to the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco for the screening of "AfterMath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11" with a follow-up panel discussion with key individuals profiled in the movie.

The film AfterMath features nine people who answer eleven of the most pressing questions about the official version of events regarding 9-11. Some of the questions posed in the film are: Why wasn’t the US military able to intercept the hijacked planes?; Is there any historical evidence to suggest that the government may have used the 9/11 attacks to justify its war in Central Asia?; and, How has recent legislation like the PATRIOT ACT and the Homeland Security Bill affected the lives of American people?

After the showing of the Guerrilla News Network film ( narrated by hip-hop artist Paris the audience burst out in applause and gave a standing ovation. The applause extended to voices in the film — Michael Ruppert, Peter Dale Scott, Riva Enteen, who spoke briefly before the panel opened to questions. Moderating the panel was Barrie Zwicker, producer of The Great Deception, the path-breaking documentary that challenged the official 9-11 narrative over a year ago. Zwicker cut right down to the chase by asking four questions of the audience "To get a feeling of where you all are" — How many believed that elements of the U.S. government not just knew but actively participated in the highjackings of 9-11 , in a word were complicit? (about 75 percent of the audience raised their hands); How many of you believe in the official story of what happened on 9/11? (a smattering of hands); How many think Bush knew? (about 50% raised their hands); and, finally, how many people haven’t put their hands up?

The questions obviously made some people uncomfortable as a few shifted nervously in their seats and a few got up to leave, but for the most part the audience was appreciative of the hard line of questions as apparent by their enthusiastic applause and shouts.

The turnout was a pleasant surprise for the organizers who said that up until two days before the event that they had only sold about 120 tickets for a theatre holding about a thousand seats.

Carol Brouillet, co-creator of the Deception Dollar which sponsored the event last night was excited about the response. "It was a great turnout, very encouraging to see so many people. We were a little worried about what kind of response we would get as a lot of the press is hesitant to pick up and write about this event." She said a good deal of the success had to do with dedicated people working to get the word out about 9-11 and the great marketing material produced by her colleague Blaine Machan, artist for the Deception Dollar and AfterMath postcards and posters.

Brouillet, who is hoping to break even after tonight’s showing of the film in Palo Alto, said, "it was a great success putting this event on even if we do lose money. It’s just so important to get this information out to people, to get them to talk. Whatever money raised either through these venues or by sales of Deception Dollars goes right back into producing more dollars and educational material. This has been my life."

Tonight’s showing is in Palo Alto’s Spangenberg Theatre at Gunn High School, 780 Arastradero Road. Reception is $25 and starts at 5:30, film screening is at 7:30 and cost $10. The film is followed by a dialogue with Michael Ruppert, Riva Enteen, Peter Dale Scott, Richard Heinberg with moderator Barrie Zwicker. Tickets available through City Box Office or call 415-392-4400.

a question from the floor asked why the silence on the demolition of the wtc towers. lack of evidence was the non-answer. no one else would touch it. so i ask again, why the silence? why is film not acceptable evidence?

Take this show on the road. Book it into every city. And use it to start a political movement to destroys the criminals stealing our government.

9/11 was America's Reichstag fire. Thelies they told to sell this to the American people are the foundation for their own destruction with the truth.

I thank God for your efforts. I learned at the end of September 2001 of the U.S. involvement in September 11 from a website which had the info. taken off shortly after I received it. I have prayed and prayed that the truth would come out and the American people could be informed. This film, along with vides and books, and the efforts of so many others in bringing out the truth is very heartening. Maybe there is some hope for this country.

Everyone should buy 9/11 the commemorative tape from It's the film by the Naudet brothers who were filming the NYC fire department Sept. llth. About fifteen minutes into the film is the photo of a small whatzit hitting the first tower. The missile/whatzit is white with small wings. It's going so fast they barely catch it even with professional photography. This is the evidence that will hang Bush and his criminal conspirators. American Airlines Flight ll did not hit the first tower. The official story is a cover-up for genocide. They murdered 3,000 people here. The airlines were in on it too. Impeach him before he does it again.

"The missile/whatzit is white with small wings" is called a jet airplane. This video has been shown millions of times (the only one existing of the first tower being hit). It was shown immediately following 9/11 and was shown on the CBS special that the Naudet brothers produced.

The object hitting the tower is clearly a jet airplane. This is not in dispute. Come on people, if you are going to make up alternative stories, take the trouble of making them consistent with eye-witness and video evidence.

I'm sure you have analyzed the visual evidence, but I haven't. Maybe it's a red herring, maybe not.
Hope springs eternal.

I have studied near orginial quality video of Hit1, frame by frame. What I find most interesting is no one seems to have invetisgated the sound signature of the flying object. This could well be the only viable solid proof of the type of object it was. Sounds signarture between planes and thier engines can be mapped quite uniquely. Despite background noise and other factors.
The other more disturbing visual clue from the film is the 'poof' which appears in front of the object before ANY contact with the building is made. It is very obvious when studing the frames. It is there. What is it?

Stories on the same subject, ie 911 stories, are grouped together, especially when duplicated multiple times or posted serially over a short period of time.

Any number of subjects have been grouped together.
Any number of serial posters make inaccurate claims to "hidden" status.

I too am quite skeptical of anything the government says about the events of September 11,2001. I purchased the dvd of the French brothers at Borders. There indeed is a puff before the plane hits the firsttower. As it is hitting the tower, another puff exits from the left side of the tower. Being as I am not schooled in engineering or thermodynamics, I do not have an explanation. Funny is it not, these planes strike the towers and soon afterwards a piece of one of the jet engines is found on the ground. But the pentagon plane leaves virtually no trace of debris. Rumsfeld is quoted in October of 2001 in Parade magazine that a missile hit the pentagon. I guess this was a slip of his slithery tongue. I talked to a former pilot of N.W. who had over 15000 hours in planes and he suggested to me that the only way for a plane to have hit the pentagon was to fly upside down.
Getting back to the two towers, I find it difficult to believe that jet fuel was able to burn so hot for so long as to melt the steel beams. ALso , when viewing the video, most of the fuel is burned on the outside of the buildings. The govenrment used this as a Pearl Harbor, so I am betting that they lied about any foreknowledge, just like in 1941. You see, Churchill had to get a reluctant America into a war. So he did.

On the morning og 9/11, Bush was visiting an elementray school. He took no action after he was informed about the first plane crashed into WTC.

The entire staff traveled with him. They have the world's most sophisticated telecommunication equipment. They are in direct communication with every agency at all time. He continued to entertain school children? Calm as entertaining as usual? It's the World Trade Center, Man! It's a jumbo jet that crashed into it, Man! Are you in a trance? And your staff, too?

I say Impeachment now ! And possibly more punishments to all involved! Thousands of innocents died and thousands more suffer because their loved ones perished and tragically.

so now the conspiricy is that they had explosives in the building and they flew a plane into them. and then detonated them all at the same time.
man that pilot was good hitting the right flloor and all.
and the guys who planted the explosivon that floor of the building without anyone seeing? they are pretty good too

My friend and I were here in New York on 9/11, watching in the terror from one of the taller buildings in Brooklyn Heights after the first tower was hit. A small plane, which looked like a nosey passenger plane -- maybe a cessna or something -- flew by and we were like, "What the hell are they doing? That's dangerous." Then as soon as we'd said it, that's when this monster of a commercial plane came right behind it and crashed into the second tower. So there's your eyewitness account. There was a small plane before the second WTC hit.

I appreciate the story on GNN and very much appreciate what they are doing. However, you might want to let your readers know that GNN’s site is very unresponsive concerning orders of their DVDs. I ordered one in March and haven’t received it, or a response to my emails, yet.
