An Honest Skeptic's View of the Great American Conspiracies: Lincoln to 9/11 - Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Dr Stephen Juan
An Honest Skeptic's View of the Great American Conspiracies: Lincoln to 9/11 - Interview with Dr Stephen Juan
Interview by John Bursill
It is a great pleasure to welcome bestselling author, media personality and lecturer Dr Stephen Juan to Visibility 9-11 to talk about "honest" skepticism of the great American conspiracies. This is a very interesting interview as we touch on many common themes in historical events setting the climate for the 9/11 Attacks. We explore the Lincoln assassination, the sinking of the Maine and Lusitania, Pearl Harbor and the JFK assassination. It is also a little special in my view as this skepticism is being presented in a balanced and conservative way by an intellectual who is not connected to the 9/11 Truth Movement, but rather to the mainstream. The views expressed and questions asked by Dr Juan are really what we should be hearing from the broader academically based media communities, publications and personalities, but we most certainly and unfortunately are not. As far as I know, with this broadcast, he is the first Australian media science personality to honestly question the official story of 9/11. Please may there be more to follow soon! Dr Juan makes it clear that he is not an expert in these matters but he follows the principles of scientific research when reviewing events like 9/11. In the last part of the interview, Dr Juan says he has many questions around the building collapses appearing to him to be "controlled demolitions...hello" and he thinks that the supporting evidence for the government's account is often simply ridiculous in nature. Dr Juan believes it is very important for us all be skeptical of our government's excuses to go to war based on his experience and that "conspiracy theorists" should be taken seriously when serious questions remain unanswered. Dr Juan says the truth about 9/11 is coming out much quicker than it did with the JFK assassination; so we the truth seekers should remain optimistic that the truth will out and he encourages us that many in what he calls the "underground corporate media" are trying to raise awareness of these issues when possible, sometimes indirectly. He also explains from his experience in the media that these opportunities for the truth of 9/11 are very difficult to come across.

At the beginning of the show I mention the shock illness of Janette MacKinlay and that our best wishes are with her at this worrying time. For more info see www.911blogger.com/node/22568.
