News media challenged at WETA event

Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund and 911sig, challenged the news media to review the PowerPoint presentation "Fatally Flawed: The 9/11 Commission Report," and investigate the questions it poses.

The opportunity arose at the screening of the new WETA series "America at a Crossroads" held today at George Washington University. The event was hosted by Robert MacNeil. The panelists included former Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Perle, Michael Isikoff of Newsweek, and Calvin Sims of the New York Times.

Mr. Masud stated that the collapse of Building 7 of the World Trade Center is not even mentioned in "The 9/11 Commission Report." The fact that it collapsed in less than seven seconds, and that we still don't have an official explanation for its collapse has not been investigated by major news media.

Mr. Masud also taped a two minute video comment on 9/11 for the "America at a Crossroads" website. To view it go to the video diaries, go to the map, and click on New Delhi, India.

Mr. Masud was the keynote speaker on October 13, 2001, at the 27th Annual Sir Syed Day commemoration hosted by the Aligarh Alumni Association, USA. His talk was titled: "America at the Crossroads: Might v.Right, Confrontation v. Dialogue".

Alison Weir, in "The Messsage of the 'Crossroads' Series," wrote: "Instead of undertaking a thinly veiled prosecution of Muslims in which it found some of the accused "not guilty," it would have been valuable for PBS to do what it claimed: examine ourselves and the divergent paths from which we must choose. Either we will continue in the direction promoted by Perle, Gaffney and others, and continue destroying more and more of the globe, and quite possibly ourselves; or we will turn back to efforts to build a nation and a world in which ethnic agendas and outmoded tribalisms give way to universal principles of justice, equality, and coexistence."
