# Perspective on 9-11
Exposing the Lies of the Official Story and Seeking the Truth
In this multimedia presentation, Ken Jenkins will guide an exploration into
the mystery of what really happened on Sept 11, 2001. There will be
particular emphasis on the historical context. Going beyond the
pioneering video by Michael Ruppert, excerpts of ten videos, including The
Great Deception and GNN’s Aftermath will be shown, along with many
Powerpoint slides. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
"The truth behind 9/11 offers an unprecedented opportunity: to bust the war
game once and for all, to usher in a new era of lasting peace, where war
is no longer an option."
Ken Jenkins has been giving presentations about 9-11 for two years. An
award winning video and media producer, he has an education in engineering
and has done extensive study in psychology and metaphysics. He brings a
multifaceted and balanced approach to this investigation. He is a
featured speaker at the upcoming 9-11 International Inquiry in SF.
