Consensus Panel Comings and Goings:
As the first year of the Panel’s time-consuming work comes to a close, we announce the departures of Dr. Paul Zarembka, economist at the State University of New York in Buffalo; Canadian author and journalist Barrie Zwicker, an active senior participant in the Canadian 9/11 community; and former U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot Shelton Lankford. We extend our thanks and appreciation to these gentlemen for their service to the Panel, particularly during the first round of Consensus Points, which were published in early September, 2011.
We also officially welcome Aidan Monaghan, who joined the Panel in February. Aidan holds a Bachelors degree in electronic engineering and is a Freedom of Information (FOI) researcher regarding the 9/11 attacks.

His 9/11 research includes two peer reviewed studies.

February 1, 2012 (9/11 Consensus Panel in the News)
“9/11 was the defining event of our time. Multiple wars followed. More are planned. America’s business is war – permanent, destructive, lawless ones.
Global terror wars rage; another on truth, democratic values, rule of law principles, social justice, and freedom.
Debunking the official 9/11 lie is a vital first step to ending the global nightmare threatening humanity if it continues.”

Brian Burchill, “The 9/11 Consensus Panel,” Foreign Policy Journal, October 26, 2011.
“The diverse knowledge and expertise of the panelists, and the methodology used, give this 9/11 Consensus Panel a high degree of distinction, integrity, authority and credibility. This… provides the mainstream media with opportunity to confidently promote serious discussion, even challenge the official narrative, about this world-changing event with its continuing fallout.”

Below is an open letter from the 9/11 Consensus Panel to the editor of Foreign Policy News:
October 3, 2011
Publishers Weekly, the prestigious reviewing journal for libraries and the book trade for over 100 years, has published an exclusive review on Dr. David Ray Griffin’s most recent book, 9/11 Ten Years Later.
Current reviews are available online only to subscribers, so the review is copied below:
David Ray Griffin. Interlink/Olive Branch, $18 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-56656-868-5
The official government story about the attacks of 9/11–that 19 Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked four planes and flew them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, causing the deaths of nearly 3,000 people–has been accepted by the American masses for 10 years and used as the pretext for wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Griffin (The New Pearl Harbor), who has written numerous books on 9/11, systematically challenges each aspect of the government’s case. He provides chilling evidence to support his claims, and points to large organizations of professionals who doubt the official story. Griffin claims that 9/11 was a “false flag” attack perpetrated by the Bush administration to incite Americans into combat in the Middle East and allow a number of personal freedoms to be sacrificed to the government in the form of the Patriot Act. While “truthers” (disbelievers in the government story) have been dismissed as cranks and conspiracy theorists, Griffin presents a brilliantly assembled, plausible case, full of scientific accuracies and meticulous citations. While undoubtedly repetitive, Griffin’s calm approach will lead all readers to think more skeptically about the official story. (Sept.)
