We Get Letters: An Irregular Feature

While working on a story about HSBC BANK'S admission to laundering drug money this morning, I received a note from an Internet correspondent:

G'day Daniel, this morning I came upon this in a Google search about you:


"At this very moment in time they are getting him ready for the major talk show circuit. They are grooming him as the atom bomb to destroy the 911 truth movement and the seeds of this destruction were sewed in an article written by Hopsicker back on November 7, 2001 for Onlinejournal.com."

Bewildered, please comment about where it is you stand on the work of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. I'd appreciate it.

Kindly, Joe

Ah, the perils of disinformation! It's such depressingly familiar territory. Still, I replied:


Considering that the guy who wrote that thinks its important to understand the role of alien locusts in the 9/11 attack from a biblical perspective–true story!–and is a whacked-out Obama birther to boot, I'd say you've already illustrated any point I might make far better than I ever could.

Well, I thought: That's that! I thought wrong:


I agree that that story is dis-information of the cognitive infiltration kind. Fair enough. Nonetheless, please, may I ask again, please comment about where it is you stand on the work of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. I also notice that you have done things with Michael C. Ruppert, a true Patriot. I've read "Crossing the Rubicon" and studied numbers of his lectures. Recently, he has divorced himself from AE911Truth, and I'd like to know why. Thank you Daniel for your replies.

I hadn't even had my first cup of coffee, but was already engaged in a 'dialogue.'


Um, look… its like this: When I got into this outré link of work, I had to admit to myself that I could be successfully lied to.  And, as it happened, on certain occasions I have been.

I don't, however, have the sense that most people realize this about themselves.

I don't have a grand theory of everything. And I can be proved wrong. So I usually stick to my knitting–to what I can discover and prove to be true–and leave others to do the same. Having said that, my personal opinion is that 9/11 truth…isn't.

This probably isn't over. STAY TUNED.

    Jeez….. Daniel… You got me kinda confiused……. Isn’t it reasonable to chacterize YOUR WORK exposuing the true natiure of Mohamed Atta …. as compared to the “official legend” as 911 truth work…….?? And what abouit the 41 pouinds of herion. Isn’t it possible that it was Afghan… and 911 connected…. The gov doesn’t seem very 911 curious….. or inclined to deviate from, what was out there from early on..
