See The Truth | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

It's been said that you call a person a conspiracy (theorist) because you don't want others to think about facts or content. Name calling is a time-tested tactic of bullies everywhere. The method works well on the intellectually lazy or weak, but not for the strong or independent-minded.

The 9/11 Truth Movement has grown rapidly worldwide, because it has the integrity of honest enquiry going for it. It asks questions and demands answers. If you believe the movement is a fringe element of society consisting of a few young crazies on the Internet, take a look for yourself. Engage your brain and do some research.

You will find the following websites more interesting and more creditable than anything media bullies O'Reilly or Hannity or Larry King might shower upon you. Google any of the following: Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, Veterans for 9/11 Truth, Patriots Question 9/11. Lawyers for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth, or Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth and begin to examine the evidence.

If one Googles 9/11 Truth on the Internet, one will get seven million, three hundred ninety thousand hits. Many are well maintained websites like 9/11 Blogger or 9/11 This is a mere fraction of the millions of people who have looked at the evidence and understand the need for a new and independent criminal investigation. You will also discover that most family members of 9/11 victims support a real investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

The search for 9/11 truth starts with the recognition that anyone, even people in power can and do lie. The official story of 9/11 is easily proven to be false. Our corporate controlled media continues to have great power to manipulate our thinking; but as GW has said "fool me can't get fooled again". Many of us have been fooled by the official 9/11 story, but once you have examined the evidence, you will see through its fallacies and you will not be fooled again.

If you believe that 9/11 is old news, remember that we live in the Post-9/11 world, the phrase "since 9/11" is used by warmongers everyday and that there is no statute of limitations on murder.
