Dick Croy, Saturday, August 10,
Can serious-minded fiction play a role in creating a better understanding of critical contemporary social/political issues like 9/11?
My novella FALSE FLAG draws heavily on two primary sources to tell the story of the 9/11 cover-up. One is the brilliant “Miracles” essay by David Ray Griffin, who read the script and provided additional invaluable feedback. The other is the heavily researched and footnoted 2-part essay by E.P. Heidner which “ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery that are most compelling,” in the words of Fred Burks, on whose website wanttoknow.info the essay appeared.
Thanks to the Internet and an increasing number of enterprising and courageous individuals, the information now available on a 9/11 cover-up is voluminous and convincing. But my perception is that the audience for acting on it is a small fraction of what it could and needs to be. And I suspect that even the most damning, irrefutable additional evidence won’t grow it substantially. The choir is being preached to with brilliance and passion, but it’s time to enlarge the congregation. Exponentially.
All this evidential intelligence needs to be presented in such a way that it permeates the cultural equivalent of the blood-brain barrier. How can we bypass that impregnable human defense system known as denial? Story-telling, fiction, is certainly one way. As I state at the end of FALSE FLAG, “Although its central characters are fictional, the story you have just read is based on the tragedy we all know so well – or, more correctly for many of us, not so well.”
FALSE FLAG is a novella-length narrative with fictional characters, which I hope you’ll take a moment to check out at this link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/142983438/FALSE-FLAG.
If FF has the narrative drive intended – and previous readers assure me that it does – your read and favorable mention or forwarding could help enhance the response that this monstrous state crime against the planet deserves. No matter what each of us is doing to improve life on earth for humanity and the biosphere itself, we need to know what we’re up against.

I just did a really quick overview of this before I published it; you can make up your own mind, but I am quite dubious, mainly of the evidence, or questioning of the available evidence.
First, if the full tanks supplied enough fuel for the fires sufficient to melt steel beams and supporting structure to bring the buildings down, then the heat was sufficient to melt airplane parts into unrecognizable material; and, incidentally, airplane parts were found around the area. We've all seen the multiple films by multiple citizens from multiple angles.
It was airplanes.
Second, my own experience tells me that material of all sorts, including human tissue, wood, clay, dirt, all sorts of stuff has a rebound or "bounce-back" reaction that causes all sorts of unusual and unpredictable shapes after being punctured by something. Entry wounds are almost always smaller in appearance than the bullet caliber that made them. That's why you need something very thin and flat, like paper, to shoot for score.
Like I say, make up your own mind.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
