A Message for Michelle Guthrie, the Managing Director of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
Dear Ms Guthrie,
There is a father in America that has truly inspired me to investigate with integrity — without fear or favour. This is Bob McIlvaine. His son, Bobby Jnr, was killed in the lobby of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 — and his body was taken to the morgue. Bobby died from an explosion in the lobby — unrelated to the the plane impact 93 floors above.
After The 911 Commission Report was released in 2004, Bob McIlvaine quickly discovered that many aspects of the document were fraudulent. He went on a relentless and thorough search for the truth, and came to the conclusion that the official narrative is a lie.
You have a legal degree, and are therefore familiar with “burden of proof”, “beyond a reasonable doubt,” and the presentation of facts versus speculation. Unfortunately, the media and Western governments rushed to an immediate and pre-scripted position that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on New York.
The 9-11 official narrative was then used as an excuse to initiate war.
Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, the ABC also never reported on the details of a 2001 memo that outlined a plan to DESTROY seven countries in five years. This was revealed to us in 2007 by General Wesley Clark (Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO, 1997 – 2000). He was told of this plan a few weeks after 9-11, when visiting the Pentagon. The countries for destruction were “Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”
ABC’s Charter and Vision
The ABC Charter encourages “…understanding of Australian attitudes on world affairs…”, and there is the assumption that the ABC represents the various views of the Australian population. The number of Australians that understand that the official 9/11 narrative a lie, is not insignificant. I would guess it is a million or more. How would we know?
The first 9/11 poll was carried out by The New York Times and CBS News in May 2002. But they did not publish the result. I wonder why? A CBS poll two years later (4/8/04) asked the question, “Do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth [about 9-11]”. Only 21% said yes. 66% said the administration was “…hiding something”, 10% said they were lying, and 4% were not sure.
Take into account, too, that many of those that answered the poll had probably never heard that a THIRD skyscraper (Building 7) collapsed that afternoon. The many thousands of architects and engineers that support a new investigation have found that awareness of Building 7 is limited, but “when people are shown video of its collapse, a majority suspect it was a controlled demolition…”
Opening Old Wounds
In my correspondence with an ABC 774 Radio host, I was told that opening the wounds of 9/11 is disrespectful of the victims and their families. I say it is dishonour to let their memory be buried under an egregious lie. To quote a Russian proverb:
“It is better to be slapped with the truth — than kissed with a lie.”
I thus support Bob McIlvaine and his family in their desire for the truth. He, along with Richard Gage, AIA, recently announced the Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act (in the US). This is supported by close to 3,000 architects and engineers, as well as two-dozen 9/11 family members — plus whistle-blower, Peter Michael Ketcham, a former NIST employee, who has exposed the fraudulent investigation under the Bush administration. The draft legislation would empanel a select committee to re-investigate the destruction of the THREE World Trade Center towers.
The evidence is now so overwhelming. In a review of David Ray Griffin’s new book, “Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World”, Edward Curtin writes:
“Astutely logical, deeply sourced, and scientifically compelling, the book’s conclusion can only be rejected by one adamantly closed to accepting the ugly truth about the US government and its media accomplices.” [my emphasis]
To quote Dr Paul Craig Roberts, (this award winning journalist was once the US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan, 1981):
“…this defining event of our time [9/11], which has launched the US [and Australia] on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo subject for investigation in the media.” [my emphasis]
Ms Guthrie, you have been entrusted to protect and encourage the VALUES of the ABC — that it remains a truly INDEPENDENT media organisation for ALL Australians. But yet, the organisation has excluded so many of us.
The ABC claims to treat its audiences with consideration and dignity. This has not been the case. On many occasions those callers or guests that have suggested an honest 9/11 debate have been called disparaging names.
After Dr Karl laughed mockingly one morning at 9/11 conspiracy nuts, I put forward a challenge to him (on Gumshoe), to explain the free-fall of Building 7 — from office furnishing fires. He declined of course, as the building’s demise is IMPOSSIBLE to explain if you do not except demolition.
The ABC also claims to embrace diversity (of ideas) — but that too is untrue.
As the person who manages ABC for us, you are to act with INTEGRITY — and there is the presumption that you will act with “trustworthiness, honesty and fairness.”
The ABC has a budget of $1.22 billion a year ($1,220,000,000) compared to Gumshoe’s near zero. And yet, I conservatively guess Gumshoe’s content and analysis of 9/11 (and other important topics) would resonate with at least 10 to 15% of Australians — even in this climate where honest reportage of the 9/11 event has been suppressed. This imbalance should be addressed.
I applaud some of the reporting from the ABC (e.g., on Adani, refugees or abattoirs), but the organisation becomes dishonest and untrustworthy when it will not investigate the big lies like the 9/11 false flag.
Many Australians have had enough of ABC’s smooching, and would prefer to be slapped with the truth.
