Awarded for 'Documentary Achievement' at the University of Toronto Film 
Festival, this is a unique film that examines academia's treatment of 
critical perspectives on 9/11; it explores the taboo that shields the US 
government's narrative from scholarly examination.

This film examines impairments in professional inquiry, the terms used 
as thought-stoppers in academic discourse, the implications of an 
'official' 9/11 narrative that builds'  its foundation on tortured 
testimony, the non-response to critical scholarship on 9/11 in the 
humanities and sciences, and the attacks that occur on academic freedom.

The film promotes a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the 
purpose of academia, and aims to change intellectual discourse on 9/11 
and the 'War on Terror' for a more peaceful world.

/"I find it troubling that so few [Academics] have seriously engaged 
with the question of what actually happened on 9/11 and why. There are 
so many holes and limitations in the official version that it calls out 
for rigorous intellectual fact-finding and analysis./'
~Alvin A. Lee, President Emeritus of McMaster University

/"even Dr Zbig 'Grand Chessboard' Brzezinski, a former national security 
advisor, admitted to the US Senate that the post-9/11 'war on terror' is 
a 'mythical historical narrative'."/ ~Pepe Escobar

"/The role of the intellectual, so it is said, is to speak truth to 
power. Noam Chomsky has dismissed this pious tag on two grounds. For one 
thing, power knows the truth already; it is just busy trying to conceal 
it. For another, it is not those in power who need the truth, but those 
they oppress."/ ~Terry Eagleton

"/Exposing 9/11 truth will jump-start the cleaning up of our system 
revealing all the corruption under one huge umbrella/" ~ 9/11 survivor.  See

/"It's even worthless to debate about the commission; the fact was that 
it was a useless endeavor. It was not an investigation. ... They were 
very condescending to all the witnesses, especially government 
witnesses. ...I don't know where the uproar of the American people is. 
There is nothing - nothing - reputable about that commission report. 
It's a piece of fiction, it should be discarded; it's omissions and 
lies./"   "/People should get angry; it's OK to be angry. Where is the 
moral outrage//?////It's our generation that needs to say 'No More'/ "
~Bob Mcilvaine,  former history teacher, Oreland, PA; one of the most 
outspoken 9/11 family members; son Robert Jr was killed in the North 
Tower  [Father of 9/11 Victim: The Commission Was a Sham

*/The School of the Americas (SOA)/*/is a combat training school for 
Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. In 2001 
renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation 
(WHINSEC). //It was initially established in Panama in 1946 however it 
was expelled from Panama in 1984 under the terms of the //Panama Canal 
Treaty //(article iv) and reinforced under the //Treaty Concerning the 
Permanent Neutrality and Operation of the Panama Canal //(article v)./

/Former Panamanian President, Jorge Illueca, stated that the School of 
the Americas was the*“biggest base for destabilization in Latin 
America.”* *The SOA have left a trail of blood and suffering in every 
country where its graduates have returned. For this reason the School of 
the Americas has been historically dubbed the “School of Assassins”.*/)
