Journalists utterly ignored the Toronto Hearings. Don Rumsfeld/Colin Powell/Tony Blair/Andrew Card/Richard Perle were all wheeled out to give their 911 Retrospectives to BBC/CNN/SKY.

There was one exception. Thanks Megan O'Toole:

"David Chandler's presentation in Toronto is historic. Save this for your children.

"It took 100 years for Newton's theory of gravity to be widely accepted, but if enough people watched this presentation, this government would not withstand the gravity of the implications Mr. Chandler has so clearly stated. " - commentator.

After the Toronto Hearings
Exposing hubris and lies for all to see

http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/41-articles/565-toronto-hearings.html

Excerpt from longer article:
"Along with the standing room only audience in attendance, nearly 10,000 people tuned in to the live video stream during the final day of the hearings. One of these online viewers was Dr. Paul Craig Roberts [former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and co-editor Wall Street Journal]

In his article entitled “Does 9/11 Truth Have a Chance?” written the night of September 11, 2011, Dr. Roberts states:

“Here are some of the important things I learned from the Toronto Hearings.

"The NIST reports on the twin towers and building 7 are fraudulent... There is no doubt whatsoever about this. Anyone who declares the contrary has no scientific basis upon which to stand. Those who defend the official story believe in miracles that defy the laws of physics. [...]

"Many other powerful points were made at the [hearings] … the revelation of malevolence is so powerful that most readers will find it a challenge to their emotional and mental strength.”

In another article, written two days after the close of the hearings and entitled “The Critics of 9/11 Truth. Do They Have a Case?,” Dr. Roberts begins simply:

“The short answer to the question in the title is a resounding “No!”. The 9/11 Truth critics have nothing but ad hominem arguments.”

... After describing the vast credentials and experience of those involved in the truth movement, Roberts says “It is not a conspiracy theory to examine the evidence and to state that the evidence does not support the explanation that has been given. That is the position of the 9/11 Truth movement.”

He concludes: “There is no 9/11 debate. On the one hand there are credentialed experts who demonstrate problems in the official account, and on the other hand there are non-experts who denounce the experts as conspiracy kooks.

"The experts are cautious and careful about what they say, and their detractors have thrown caution and care to the wind. That is the state of the debate.”

TV interview with Dr Graeme MacQueen, wrapping up after the Toronto Hearings.
Well worth seeing, not least for the way MacQueen handles the journalist's questions:

The 9/11 Consensus Points
http://www.consensus911.org/the-911-consensus-points/

The official account of the events of September 11, 2001, has been used:

-- to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; which have resulted in the deaths of millions of people;
-- to authorize torture, military tribunals, and extraordinary rendition; and
to suspend freedoms guaranteed by the American Constitution such as habeas corpus in the USA, and similar freedoms in Canada, the UK, and other countries.

The official claims regarding 9/11 are contradicted by facts that have been validated by a scientific consensus process, and which include the following points of “best evidence”: ... for full document, go to http://www.consensus911.org/the-911-consensus-points/

From Dr Laurie Manwell - co-organiser of The Toronto Hearings.

As playwrightArthur Miller once remarked, Few of us can easily surrender our belief that society must somehow make sense. The thought that the state has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent people is intolerable. And so the evidence has to be internally denied.
(quoted in.Pilger, 2004, p. 23)"

In Denial of Democracy
Social Psychological Implications for Public Discourse on State Crimes Against Democracy Post-911

Laurie Manwell / American Behavioral Scientist

http://abs.sagepub.com/content/53/6/848.abstract

Abstract: Protecting democracy requires that the general public be educated on how people can be manipulated by government and media into forfeiting their civil liberties and duties.

This article reviews research on cognitive constructs that can prevent people from processing information that challenges preexisting assumptions about government, dissent, and public discourse in democratic societies.

Terror management theory and system justification theory are used to explain how preexisting beliefs can interfere with people’s examination of evidence for state crimes against democracy (SCADs), specifically in relation to the events of September 11, 2001, and the war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Reform strategies are proposed to motivate citizens toward increased social responsibility in a post-9/11 culture of propagandized fear, imperialism, and war.

Toronto Hearings: Documentary - Release of Final Version

Whatever your views on 9/11, this gathering of academics, scientists and legal experts provides informative commentary and media critique.

US politician Cynthia McKinney does not shy away from speaking among this group.

The first 30 minutes provide an overview of remit and tone.

Prof DeHaven Smith (about 40 minutes in) - one of those who've recently done groundbreaking research into SCADS (state crimes against democracy) - points out that elite crimes are atomised and journalists fail to provide context: media presentation results in 'incident-specific myopia'. When we investigate ordinary crimes we look for pattern. When it comes to elite crimes, we are discouraged from looking for pattern, labelled 'conspiracy theorists' if we attempt to do so and are thereby shut down.

Note: The 9/11 Toronto Report will be available at Amazon within a few weeks.

Evidence of fraud collated at Tornonto Hearings to be taken to International Criminal Court.

Ferdinando Imposimato is the Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy and sat on the Toronto Hearings Panel at Ryerson University in September 2011. Judge Imposimato is a former Senator who served on the Anti-Mafia Commission in three administrations. He is the author or co-author of seven books on international terrorism, state corruption, and related matters. He plans to take evidence of fraud to the International Criminal Court, saying:

"The 9/11 attacks were a global state terror operation permitted by the administration of the USA, which had foreknowledge of the operation yet remained intentionally unresponsive in order to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq. To put it briefly, the 9/11 events were an instance of the strategy of tension enacted by political and economic powers in the USA to seek advantages for the oil and arms industries."
