Lecturer Under Fire for 9/11 Conspiracy Belief
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of ABC News
Posted: November 11th, 2006
Wisconsin lawmakers are demanding that a University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer be pulled from his fall teaching position because of his belief that the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks were not carried out by terrorists, but by the U.S. government. Kevin Barrett...drew widespread criticism, including action from 52 Wisconsin state Assembly representatives and nine state senators [who] signed a letter last week [which] demands that Barrett be released from his lecturing post. Barrett maintains, however, that he will not present only his views in the classroom. "I present what I consider to be interesting and/or defensible positions, and urge the students to come to their own conclusions. I've been saying these things for three years on local and national radio and TV," he said. "Nobody even complained before, least of all the students." It appears he is not alone with his [views]. According to a March 2004 Gallup poll, 53 percent of those surveyed said they thought the Bush administration was covering up pre-9/11 intelligence. University of Wisconsin provost Patrick...Farrell's investigation concluded that Barrett would be a qualified instructor. Barrett is co-founder of an organization called the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance. The organization says on its Web site that it is "dedicated to uniting members of the Jewish, Islamic and Christian faiths in pursuit of 9/11 truth."
