Key Excerpts from Article on Website of International Business Times

Fourteen years after 9/11, Truthers, as theyve been pejoratively labeled since 2001, have not gone away. In 2006, Zogby found that 42 percent of Americans nationally believed the U.S. concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks, and that there has been a cover-up. There are millions of people in the U.S. who believe the official story of 9/11 is ... false. Thats not a fringe group. Its possible that you know a friend whos a Truther. Or a dentist. Or a bartender. Maybe they just havent told you. Bob Mcllvaine lost his son, Bobby, in the north tower of the World Trade Center. He joined a group called 9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, [and] helped lead a march of 250,000 anti-war protesters in New York. I didnt want to be a victim," he said. "I wanted to have change." The turning point came when he attended the 9/11 Commission hearings. I felt then that this whole thing has been a big lie, he said. People just dont want to talk about it. His status as the father of a victim hasnt protected him from critics of the Truther camp. But he also says that after one Fox News segment a few years ago, presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Fox host Geraldo Rivera both told him footage of WTC 7 looked like a controlled demolition to them. Mcllvaine also said he gets anonymous calls from the CIA or FBI encouraging him and saying they agree it was an inside job.
Note: The Boston Globe recently published a letter by Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Watch the excellent new documentary "Incontrovertible" which presents powerful proof that the fall of WTC 7 was known and reported before it actually happened on BBC news and elsewhere.
