Heads up! That “deathbed confession” by “CIA agent Malcolm Howard” is as FAKE as the official story of 9/11Sun 9:59 am Europe/London, 25 Sep 2022 1
So here I’m doing what the New York Times has never done: HEADLINE my retraction of a story that’s turned out to be false—like that paper’s own BIG LIE about Hank Aaron and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
A friend has just alerted me to the unhappy fact that one of those two pieces that I posted earlier today—the one about the “CIA agent Malcolm Howard” confessing, on his deathbed, to have worked on the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers on 9/11—is actually a fake, which was first floated in 2017, and at that time debunked (for real) by Snopes.
So, instead of quietly deleting it, I’m now retracting it, and also readily admit I should have checked it first myself. The fact is that I was struck primarily by the other piece, about the “moon landing”—which video, by Gene Gilmore, is authentic, and which I should have posted by itself; but when I saw the other one as well, I thought the pair of them should go together, and so was too quick to include the fake one, too.
This sort of thing can happen all too easily when you’re working fast, without a staff; and this one is on me. I only wish the New York Times, and all its loud accomplices in “our free press,” would do the same when they run “fake news” stories—as, nowadays, they all do all the time, yet (as far as I know) without everrunning a retraction as perceptible as the initial story. If they retract at all, they do it belatedly, and in small print, so that not many of their readers and/or viewers will notice it.
But, more often than not, the Gray Lady won’t do even that. Take, for example, the deceptive lede to this disgraceful piece from January 31, 2021:
Nanothermite the sign of BS
Radioactive fallout found by the U.S. Geological Survey in samples from 35 sites surrounding the WTC for nearly a mile. Other signs were the speed of the Towers disintegrations (8 to 10 seconds), the shock and blast waves, the pyroclastic main cloud, base-surges of street-level dust clouds, electromagnetic pulses (EMPs), upwellings of clouds from street gratings blocks away, the 2,800ºF heat under the WTC debris, and, possibly, the giveaway light-blue Cerenkov Radiation when the debris “pile” was cleared in mid-March.
Add to all these signs, the molten metal in the footprints of WTC 1, 2, and 7 that for three months could not be extinguished by water or daily soil changes as it consumed concrete, steel, glass, office combustibles. The increasing incidence of radiation-only cancers from residents is another tell-tale sign of a nuclear “event.”
