9/11 Revelations: Myths and Reality
Presented by John Wright
This is an evening packed with celebrities, celebrities of intellect and courage, who will address the myths vs the reality of 9/11. Bob Bowman and Mike Gravel will be joined by Richard Gage and Kathy McGrade speaking about the problems we face and solutions, focusing on change, and empowering people through 9/11 truth initiatives.
Kathy McGrade is a member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth; Richard Gage is a member of the American Institute of Architects and Founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. He is also the author of the multi-media talk, “9/11 Blueprint for Truth – The Architecture of Destruction,” which he has presented in 14 countries.
Dr. Bob Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, retired, is President of the Institute for Space and Security Studies, Executive Vice President of Millennium III Corporation, and retired Presiding Archbishop of the United Catholic Church. He is one of the country’s foremost authorities on national security as his many honors testify. He has received the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, the President’s Medal of Veterans for Peace, the Republic Aviation Airpower Award, the Society of American Military Engineers’ ROTC Medal of Merit (twice), the Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters, the Meritorious Service Medal, and numerous others. Colonel Bowman flew 101 combat missions as a fighter pilot in Vietnam and directed all the DoD “Star Wars” programs under presidents Ford and Carter. He has been an executive in both government and industry, and has chaired eight major international conferences. Professor Bowman taught at five colleges and universities, serving as Department Head and Assistant Dean. His Ph.D. is in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech. He has lectured at the National War College, the United Nations, Congressional Caucuses, the Academies of Science of six nations, and the House of Lords.
Former Senator Mike Gravel enlisted in the U.S. Army (1951-54) and served as special adjutant in the Communication Intelligence Services and as a Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps. He received a B.S. in Economics from Columbia University, New York City, and holds four honorary degrees in law and public affairs. He served in the Alaska House of Representatives from 1963-66, and as Speaker from 1965-66. He then represented Alaska in the U.S. Senate from 1969-81. He served on the Finance, Interior, Environmental, and Public Works committees, chairing the Energy, Water Resources, Buildings and Grounds, and Environmental Pollution subcommittees. In 1971, he waged a successful one-man filibuster for five months that forced the Nixon administration to cut a deal, effectively ending the draft in the United States. He is most prominently known for his release of the Pentagon Papers, the secret official study that revealed the lies and manipulations of successive U.S. administrations that misled the country into the Vietnam War. He founded and served as President of The Democracy Foundation, Philadelphia II, and Direct Democracy, nonprofit corporations dedicated to the establishment of direct democracy in the United States through the enactment of the National Initiative for Democracy by American voters. This evening Mike Gravel will detail the progress of the project to get a new 9/11 Commission through a California Ballot Initiative.
