This is from an event where the discussion was about the Iraq Occupation. It was sponsored by Montco Democracy for America (www.dfalink.com/montcodfa). Former Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter and ex CIA Analyst Ray McGovern were the speakers of the event. Both had compelling things to say. Scott Ritter is obviously passionate about what he believes, and I believe him to be a good man. I think he’s wrong to say there’s no “hard evidence” regarding 9/11. When he said that, I wanted to say, “Have you looked into it?” However, I kept my cool. Mr. McGovern is always a pleasure to see. This encounter was reminiscent of our first meeting. We were at the 9/11 People’s Commission in Washington D.C. on 9/11/2004. At that meeting, I was fortunate enough to get the first question. Today was no different. I made sure I was first in line. Our first meeting in D.C. took place at a church. Today’s meeting did as well. When I asked my question, there was complete silence in the room. I met someone in the potty who thanked me for asking the question, and he said the person he was with said, “Did someone just insinuate that the Government was responsible for 9/11?” The responses I received, especially from Scott Ritter, weren’t exactly what I was hoping for. However, I think, or at least I hope, it made an impact on some people in the room. The highlight of the event, for me, was when the coordinator of the event came to speak with me. He shook my hand, and said, “Thank you for your question.” Not a bad day.
