Richard Gage, AIA, presents at Sonoma State University, hosted by Project Censored
Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, CA
On the stormy eve of November 9, Richard Gage, AIA, presented “9/11: Blueprint for Truth – The Architecture of Destruction” at one of his alma mater(s), Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, CA. The event was hosted by Project Censored, an organization that since 1976 has published an anthology of 25 of the most censored newsworthy articles of the year, highlighting significant issues that the corporate media has avoided.
Project Censored Director and event organizer Mickey Huff commented, “Though we are not a 9/11-centric organization, we at Project Censored believe the more recent scientific publications and research on problems surrounding the events of 9/11 are significant and should be part of the dialogue about controversial issues that should be a focus of any free press system. Richard Gage and the architects and engineers he represents are doing very important work exposing major flaws in the official accounting of the 9/11 tragedy in NYC. Based on their expertise, Gage and over 1300 A/E’s are demanding a new, transparent, scientific investigation based on all the available evidence. The fact that such stories have been mostly ignored by corporate mainstream media, or not taken seriously, is why Gage’s work is highlighted in story #14 by Shawn Hamilton of the top 25 in “Censored 2011” this year. As with all our stories each year, we hope this crucial subject makes its way into the public eye for serious consideration. Project Censored now has over 30 college and university affiliates contributing on its expanding website. Recently Project Censored itself has been censored by so-called “alternative” publications over its coverage of 9/11 Truth.”
No one at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth could have envisioned the impact and ripple effect their work would have among fellow professionals and the general public in only three short years. Growing international interest coupled with multiple speaking engagements abroad by Richard Gage, AIA, soon underlined the need for AE911Truth to reach out in many languages besides English.
How many more millions will have the opportunity to see the WTC evidence when the 4-language version of 9/11: Blueprint For Truth hits the streets in 28 foreign countries?
The vision of branching out multilingually awakened the passions of Grazyna Samborska, AIA, who soon took the reins of this project to become its Team Leader. Ms. Samborska is a native of Poland who emigrated to the United States in 1986. Thanks to her hard work and to the unwavering commitment of Translation Team members Wibren Visser, Chuck Smith, and so many others, the Companion DVD to 9/11: Blueprint for Truth has now been translated into German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese as voice-overs, and into many more languages (such as Dutch and Finnish) in the form of subtitles.
Just before 9:11 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2010, the ninth anniversary of the attack, Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, watched as a two-billion-candlepower Third Beam of light shot into the NYC skyline – a brilliant reminder that a third WTC skyscraper, not hit by any airplane, fell on 9/11. Gage started a jubilant e-mail to AE911Truth members and supporters after the light burst into the sky: “The Third Beam went up without a hitch! … It was just awesome, Team!”
The purpose of the Third Light Beam was to break through the media blackout surrounding Building 7’s destruction and its censorship by the9/11 Commission. As part of a related media blitz, AE911Truth distributed a call list for attendees at the concurrent INN World Report conference on “How the World Changed After 9/11” being held nearby, asking each to contact a designated mainstream media company with the question, “Why is there athirdBeam of light in the New York City skyline tonight?!” According to participants, some stations responded unequivocally and without hesitation, “It’s forWTC 7!.”
Also that night, WBAI Radio (99.5 FM), Pacifica Radio’s Manhattan flagship station was called to alert its listeners to the historic Third Beam during the ninth anniversary call-in program. The station acknowledged: “The third beam represents the all-but-forgotten WTC Building 7 and its mysterious collapse, which really has never been fully explained.”
On November 13, Geraldo Rivera interviewed 9/11 victim family member Bob McIlvaine and mechanical engineer Tony Szamboti about the destruction of WTC Building 7. During the show Geraldo played the “BuildingWhat?” TV ad – previously seen only on the Internet and on TV in the New York Metropolitan Area – to a broad nationwide audience.
The Editor in Chief of Fire Engineering Magazine, Bill Manning, cast dire warnings of malpractice and conflicts of interest in the official WTC investigations and destruction of evidence in the aftermath of the Twin Tower's collapse. In hindsight, this man was well ahead of his time. We quote him liberally in our 2-hour research edition of 9/11: Blueprint for Truth.
"It's hard for me to believe [WTC 7] came down by itself...[9/11] couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us."
