- World renowned scientist, Lynn Margulis, Ph.D., today
severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation,
"I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly
erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough,
and impartial investigation be undertaken."
- One of America's most prominent scientists, Dr. Margulis
is Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Geosciences,
University of Massachusetts - Amherst. She was elected to the National
Academy of Sciences in 1983 and served as Chairman of the Academy's Space
Science Board Committee on Planetary Biology and Chemical Evolution. In
1999, President Bill Clinton presented Dr. Margulis with the http://www.nsf.gov/od/nms/recip_details.cfm?recip_id=228
- National Medal of Science, America's highest honor for
scientific achievement, "for her outstanding contributions to understanding
of the development, structure, and evolution of living things, for inspiring
new research in the biological, climatological, geological and planetary
sciences, and for her extraordinary abilities as a teacher and communicator
of science to the public."
- In her statement on
- PatriotsQuestion911.com, Dr. Margulis referred to 9/11
as "this new false-flag operation, which has been used to justify
the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as unprecedented assaults on research,
education, and civil liberties". She compared 9/11 to several self-inflicted
attacks that had been used in the past to arouse people's fear and hatred
and justify war, including the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor,
the Reichstag Fire, and Operation Himmler, which Germany used to justify
the invasion of Poland, the trigger for World War II.
- Dr. Margulis credited "the research and clear writing
- David Ray Griffin in his fabulous books about 9/11"
for providing much of the information that formed her opinion about 9/11.
She specifically lauded http://www.interlinkbooks.com/product_info.php?products_id=
- The New Pearl Harbor and http://www.interlinkbooks.com/product_info.php?products_
- The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions,
"which provides overwhelming evidence that the official story is contradictory,
incomplete, and unbelievable."
- Internationally acclaimed for her ground-breaking scientific
work, Dr. Margulis is an elected member of http://www.worldacademy.org/
- The World Academy of Art and Science, an organization
of 500 of the world's leading thinkers, chosen for eminence in art, the
