[At first I was reluctant to post articles and essays that were not strictly Christian on this website, since I did not want to mingle items that would distract from the ministry of reconciliation to which Jesus has committed us. On second thought, these articles are the perfect response to the the great evil that the US government has visited upon the world in the “9/11” false flag. I commend Frances Shure and the AE911Truth for their diligence and thoroughness in exposing these truths. — Jerry Harmon]
Editor’s Note: Frances Shure, M.A., L.P.C., has performed an in-depth analysis addressing a key issue of our time: “Why Do Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11?” The resulting essay, being presented here as a series, is a synthesis of both academic research and clinical observations.
DISCLAIMER: Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is dedicated to conducting research and educating the public about the destruction of the three World Trade Center towers — and does not speculate as to the identity or motives of the perpetrators. In this series of articles, any reference to names or motives of the attackers, made by either the author or the individuals she quotes, is a personal opinion and not the view of AE911Truth.

This video documentary is an absolute eye-opener and should be viewed by all who value the truth over lies, goodness over evil, love over hate. – Jerry Harmon
This is an expose of what happened to the planes, passengers, and flight attendants that supposedly crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and at Shanksville, PA on 9/11/2001. Rebekah Roth, a flight attendant, began to become aware of inconsistencies that she read and heard between the approved government narrative and the protocols that were in place that governed the activities of the flight attendants and other members of the flight crew. In response to her personal anguish as the illusion began to unfold before her, Methodical Illusion is one of several such videos that Ms. Roth has made available to any one who must resolve these issues. She has also written a novel called, Methodical Conclusion, that’s can be purchased online from Amazon and is available on Kindle. I commend this video enough to you without reservation.- Jerry Harmon
