Enver Masud's 9/11 lecture tour of South Africa and Malawi

Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund, just returned from a 3-week lecture tour of South Africa and Malawi.

Using video clips from CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox, plus photographs and official documents, Mr. Masud demonstrated that the major conclusions of "The 9/11 Commission Report"—the official, conspiracy theory—are false.

An iTV interview was broadcast to Sub-Saharan Africa via satellite. A one hour interview was broadcast across South Africa on SAfm—the American embassy declined SAfm's invitation to participate. Articles were published by local newspapers at most venues. The talk is available on the Internet as a slide and film presentation.

The following lists the venues and attendance:
