Guns_and_butter_logoLUMPENPROLETARIAT—On today’s edition of Guns and Butter, host Bonnie Faulkner presented Part 3 of a series of interviews with Kevin Ryan on his book, Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects. [1]  By now, it’s quite well understood that the official 9/11 Commission Report was fatally flawed, depriving the American people of a sincere investigation into the crimes of 9/11, which have been used as continuing justification for endless war everywhere, in other words, endless justification for U.S. imperialism justified by synthetic threats, giving new meaning to the term manufacturing consent.

Kevin Ryan‘s book, Another Nineteen, provides a comprehensive study of the current body of research on the prime suspects, who deserve to be investigated for their apparent roles in carrying out the crimes of 9/11Listen (and/or download) here. [2]

GUNS AND BUTTER—[17 AUG 2016]  “This is Guns and Butter[theme music]

KEVIN RYAN:  “Tenet was personally responsible for rejecting ten opportunities to capture Osama bin Laden.  You know; he just, really, was not fighting terrorism.  But, at the same time, he was hyping the idea of Al-Qaeda being such a big threat.

“So, those two things are conflicting.  And they point to the idea that Tenet, along with several other of the suspects, were actually promoting a myth about terrorism, that they would potentially exploit at some time in the future.  And, perhaps, 9/11 was that opportunity.”

BONNIE FAULKNER:  “I’m Bonnie Faulkner.  Today on Guns and ButterKevin Ryan.  Today’s show:  ‘Another Nineteen, Part 3‘.

Kevin Ryan was site manager for a division of Underwriters Laboratories, or UL.  As a manager at Underwriters, he began in 2003 to question the World Trade Center investigation being conducted by UL and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and UL’s work to insure the fire resistance of the buildings.

Ryan lost his position at UL for making his questions public.

“He was a founding member of the 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington and Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice.  He now serves as co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies.  He has co-authored several books and peer-reviewed scientific articles on the subject of 9/11.  His latest book is Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects.
