Our guest for this week’s show is Richard Gage, AIA, a San Francisco Bay Area architect of 25 years, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and the founder and CEO of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Mr. Gage has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. Most recently, he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, a parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space. You can join Richard Gage, AIA, and AE911Truth at an event in Houston this Friday:

Thank you gifts available this week only:
$150 – Sept. 11 The New Pearl Harbor” by Massimo Massucco (Only 1 copy available)
“September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor” is a 5 hour documentary that summarizes 12 years of public debate on 9/11. All the most important issues in the debate are presented in full detail, showing both the positions of those who reject the official version, the 9/11 Truth Movement, and the positions of those who support it, called “the debunkers.” You can be the judge.
$50 – 9-11: Was There an Alternative? Noam Chomsky
In 9-11, published in November 2001 and arguably the single most influential post-9/11 book, internationally renowned thinker Noam Chomsky bridged the information gap around the World Trade Center attacks, cutting through the tangle of political opportunism, expedient patriotism, and general conformity that choked off American discourse in the months immediately following. Chomsky placed the attacks in context, marshaling his deep and nuanced knowledge of American foreign policy to trace the history of American political aggression—in the Middle East and throughout Latin America as well as in Indonesia, in Afghanistan, in India and Pakistan—at the same time warning against America’s increasing reliance on military rhetoric and violence in its response to the attacks, and making the critical point that the mainstream media and public intellectuals were failing to make: any escalation of violence as a response to violence will inevitably lead to further, and bloodier, attacks on innocents in America and around the world.
$65 – The 5 Unanswered Questions About 9/11 James Ridgeway
The 9/11 Commission Report is widely declared to be the definitive account of the most devastating attack ever to take place on American soil, but in truth the most vital questions about 9/11 have not been asked:
Why wasn’t a decade of warnings and hundreds of previous deaths enough to improve airline security? Whose interests does the FAA really protect?
Why was Dick Cheney running the country from a secret bunker on 9/11? Where was Donald Rumsfeld? And how did the Bush administration plot to use the attacks to advance their policy goals?
With al-Qaeda firmly on the radar for years, why were the FBI and CIA, the world’s premier intelligence services, unable to see this coming?
What did ISI, the Pakistani intelligence organization, know, when did they know it, and whom did they tell? How did U.S. allies in the region help pave the way for these attacks?
Why didn’t this “independent” commission find anyone accountable for more than 2,700 civilian deaths? Why are so many of their findings still classified? Which questions did they ask—and which did they ignore?
$75 – The Hidden History of 9-11 Paul Zarembka
How much insider trading occurred in the days leading up to 9-11? How compromised is the evidence against alleged hijackers? Why were there no military interceptions? To what extent does the testimony of more than five hundred firefighters differ from official reports of what happened at the World Trade Center buildings that day? How inseparably connected are Western covert operations to al-Qaeda? How is Islamophobia used to sustain US imperialism? What was the 9-11 Commission?
With contributions from Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, Four Arrows, David Ray Griffin, Jay Kolar, David MacGregor, Diana Ralph, Kevin Ryan, and Bryan Sacks, this path-breaking work examines 9-11 and its background, showing how much remains unknown and where further investigation and debate is needed.
