A Hearty Salute to the Political Awareness Work of 9/11 Truth Activist Tod Fletcher

The NO LIES RADIO Live Stream Audio from the Saturday, Nov 22, 2014 “Tod Fletcher & Susan Peabody Memorial Gathering” in Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA is now posted! (1:36:33) One of the highlights was the tribute delivered by David Ray Griffin, the dean of 9/11 Truth authors, to Tod Fletcher, who served as one of his main editors and was always Griffin’s his stalwart intellectual comrade and champion. The transcript of Dr. Griffin’s statement is also published there

There is no doubt that Tod Fletcher would want to be remembered as the major researcher, writer, editor, and speaker that he was in the global 9/11 Truth & Justice movement. Tod was an editor for David Ray Griffin books. He occasionally was a stand-in for Griffin when the acclaimed theologian and 9/11 scholar could not make a radio interview due to illness. 

Tod's last interview on Bonnie Faulkner's "Guns & Butter" Radio Show on KPFA was on Sept 3, 2014. It is archived at KPFA and at NoLiesRadio (link below). The lives and the passing of Tod and his wife Susan do indeed make a sad and difficult story. But it is also a story of true and dedicated love. 

See the moving tribute by David Ray Griffin: “In Memory of Tod Fletcher: A Life of Service (1952-2014)” David Ray Griffin in Global Research (Centre for Research on Globalization) 10-08-14. In that article David Ray Griffin quotes the late-great 9/11 Truth scholar Tod Fletcher in "Having sensed earlier than most of us the falsity of the government’s explanation of what had happened on 9/11, he said: ‘I never fell for the official explanation. I’ve been researching and writing about 9/11 since 9/12’.”

The same article was published at the “Consensus 9/11” Panel website by Elizabeth Woodworth.

Tod Fletcher comes into the show at 9 minutes into this 45 minute internet radio show. “To commemorate the 13th anniversary of 9/11 Doc and I decided it would be a good idea to introduce our audience to some of the highest quality 9/11 research available. Doc and I reached out to Tod Fletcher, who is one of 22 researchers that have come together to produce “9/11 Consensus Points”. was founded by well know scholar Dr. David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth.  Twenty-two researchers are involved in the project.  Each researcher reviews and ranks specific evidence independent from the rest of the team.  This methodology helps to prevent viewpoints of any given researcher coloring the perspective of other team members.  Each evidence subject is ranked and only evidence that passes the critical thinking litmus tests of 85% or more of the entire team makes the final cut as one of the “9/11 Consensus Points”. Mr. Fletcher started working with Dr. Griffin in 2004, and he’s an expert on many aspects of 9/11.  We hope you find our discussion with Mr. Fletcher insightful.”

Tod Fletcher’s Radio show on Resistance Radio was named "9/11 In Context"

People interviewed on Tod Fletcher’s  “9/11 In Context” on-line Resistance Radio Show: John Parulis, Chris Sarns, Graeme MacQueen, Jack Straw, Aidan Monaghan, Steven Jones, Daniele Ganser, Barrie Zwicker.

"9/11 In Context" - Barrie Zwicker with Tod Fletcher: This show features an interview with veteran journalist and documentary maker Barrie Zwicker. Barrie will discuss his powerful early documentaries on 9/11; his book “Towers of Deception” on Media Gatekeeping to prevent the Truth about the 9/11 events from reaching the public; a special focus on Noam Chomsky and the Left version of Gatekeeeping; the conflict between the peace movement and the truth movement; and recent Gatekeeping efforts within the 9/11 Truth movement itself. Ryan on the “Demolition Access to WTC Buildings” exposed 11-18-10. Kevin Ryan spoke on Tom Fletcher's "9/11 In Context" show, which aired 18 Nov 2010. This video provides photos to help understand it. Kevin is a chemist and researcher and speaks about his investigation into the WTC physical evidence, especially the WTC dust, as well as the complex network of corporate tenants of the WTC and the select group of "experts" who repeatedly surface to defend the Official Conspiracy Theory of the buildings' destruction. Kevin is one of the most productive researchers in the 9/11 truth movement. He worked for a division of Underwriters Laboratories. He spoke out on how the experiments could not replicate what happened to the WTCs on 9/11 and was fired for that. Since then he has been a sought after speaker for 9/11 Truth events.

(Note: Bad sound for first minute. Good after that.) Tod Fletcher takes a critical look at 9/11, puts the attacks in context, and updates us with the latest research news. Today's guest is John Parulis, veteran of the Rainbow Warrior actions in the South Pacific, who is also a dedicated and seasoned 9/11 truth activist. John created the Truth Burn event at Burning Man 2007, and has been deeply involved in the development of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Based on his extensive study and experience of movement infiltration by agents, John will discuss the kinds of activities infiltrators are likely to engage in, and look closely at recent operations at a key 9/11 truth website.

Tod Fletcher takes a critical look at 9/11, puts the attacks in context, and updates us with the latest research news. Jack Straw joins us again to discuss where the now world-dominating social system, Capitalism, got its start, its central characteristics, why we need to resist its continued existence, and how we might do so.

Tod Fletcher takes a critical look at 9/11, puts the attacks in context, and updates us with the latest research news. Today's show will be an interview with historian Daniele Ganser, an expert on Operation Gladio, the secret campaign by the CIA, MI6, NATO and national military secret services to control European politics by terrorist attacks, forerunners of 9/11.

"9/11 In Context" withTod Fletcher: David Chandler on the WTC Demolitions (1:00:00). Tod Fletcher takes a critical look at 9/11, puts the attacks in context, and updates us with the latest research news. This week's guest is physics teacher David Chandler, who forced NIST to retract its claim that WTC7 did not fall at "free-fall speed," and has shown in an exceptional series of videos that the official account of the destruction of the Twin Towers is false as well.  

From Jeff Strahl we received articles that Tod Fletcher wrote using pen names. Jeff wrote: “The first and third are credited to Max Kolskegg, the second to I. Berg, these are pseudonyms Tod used. There is also material on the website by Will Guest which predates 9/11, that’s also Tod.” Thanks to Tod’s longtime loyal friend and intellectual comrade Jeff Stahl for these contributions to this collection of Tod Fletcher’s work.

“9/11: A DesperateProvocation by US Capitalism”. Note: This article was first posted on January 24, 2002 at Indymedia. Although many new facts have come out since then, especially involving the physical evidence for controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and WTC7, the overview it provides is still useful, especially for its articulation of the class-war context of the attacks. [MK, 1/11/10] Posted by Max Kolskegg (Tod Fletcher).

“Henry the Great onSeptember 11”. Note: This article was first posted in April, 2002 at Indymedia  about Henry Kissinger’s letter to the Washington Post on “Tuesday, September 11, 2001; 9:04 PM”. “It was posted online at not much more than twelve hours after the first airliner struck the north tower of the World Trade Center”, writes I. Berg (Tod Fletcher).  

“9/11 In Context:Plans and Counter Plans”. Note: This text was written in October 2002, originally posted at and Indymedia. It attempts to place the 9/11 attacks in their appropriate context, that is, as first expressed in an earlier article by Max Kolskegg (Tod Fletcher), as a desperate attempt by US capitalist powers to launch a new global offensive against the working class. (This article has been translated into Italian.) Excerpt: “Professor John McMurtry of the University of Guelph points to a deeper explanation of the difficulty people have had in analyzing all the evidence objectively. The crimes of September 11 were so shocking that for many, perhaps most people, even those on the Left, it is literally unthinkable that they could have been committed or intentionally permitted by the Bush administration or some secret operations group working for it:”

More Information Sent In by Friends & Activist Associates of Tod Fletcher since November 21, 2014: 

In Memory of TodFletcher and Susan Peabody by Jeff Strahl at The Daily Battle 1-03-15. This article is written by Tod’s closest friend. It is based on his remarks at the Memorial Gathering of Nov. 22, 2014 in Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA. Two Excerpts: “Tod was a prominent member of the 9/11 Truth Movement. He became a member on 9/12/01, when he and i met as we had scheduled several days earlier to discuss his pending article on the Genoa 6-7 summit (posted on this site, under the name of Max Kolskegg). We of course discussed the previous day’s events, and agreed that the whole thing had the smell of an inside job. It took us a few months to fully grasp the extent, but our intent was clear… But Tod was much more than a Truth activist. Well before 9/11, Tod was part of the global anti-capitalist movement. From mid-1988 to September 2003, he and i met generally every week to discuss stuff we were reading together, to edit each other’s articles, talk about current events, etc. And we continued to be in close contact even after that time, when first work took him away and then when he had to move from the Berkeley area, where i still live, and did so to the very end of his life. He edited every single thing i ever wrote intended for public viewing, i did likewise…”

From Elizabeth Woodworth in Vancouver, BC, Canada we learned the following news: “Tod proofed Graeme MacQueen's new book on anthrax, "The 2001 Anthrax Deception:  The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy" 2014 published by Clarity Press of Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

In the acknowledgements Graeme wrote: "Tod Fletcher copy-edited the manuscript twice, and gently forced me to explain myself more fully, opening up my dense writing so that it would cause the reader fewer headaches.  He also provided me with information that was new to me.  I am very grateful to him."

From Graeme MacQueen himself on Nov 22, 2014 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada: Dear Vic: I’m sorry I couldn’t attend the memorial for Tod and Susan, but I watched the event and I want to thank you, and all the participants, for this moving and beautiful tribute to Tod. I never met Tod in person but we had lots of conversations though the internet, and gave his time selflessly to help me write a book. I found him every bit as generous and kind as others have said. And a special thanks to you for ending with Phil Ochs' song, Changes, which I have loved for years and which was just the right song for the moment--for the passing of these wonderful people. Well done and all the best, Graeme MacQueen

And from David Ray Griffin on Nov 22, 2014 in Santa Barbara, CA, USAGraeme, Yes, Tod was more selfless than most Christians and Buddhists. And yes, "Changes" was the appropriate ending.

He disproved NIST's claims in three centrally important areas: the fictitious "10-story gouge" in the building's face; the extent and timing of fire on the 12th floor which NIST claimed caused the initial failure leading to collapse; and NIST's fraudulent diesel-fueled fire hypothesis. Chris has also been deeply involved in the work of AE911Truth, where he provides his expertise on WTC7. He shares his experiences of battling defenders of the official claims in online forums and notes their close connection to NIST. And Chris shares his ideas on how to enable the 9/11 truth movement to make the greatest impact going forward.

A series of 911blogger website attacks on David Ray Griffin’s scholarly research leadership and the rejection of its members to not allow Kevin Ryan to be a member there caught many in the movement by surprise. Tod is forthright in citing his close friendship and editorial collaboration with David Ray Griffin resulted in his being outspoken in challenging the disrespectful nature of the gang up on Griffin to make him “recant” various claims he had made in his 10 books about 9/11. Tod Fletcher had named named people at 911blogger in his prior criticisms of practices of the moderators at 911blogger. (Note: I was not allowed to publish a critique of the 2011 alleged death and dumping at sea of bin Laden that I had vetted through some NCA911TA meetings. One member of 911blogger could not tell me why it was rejected even when I offered to change something they think I got wrong. Why not publish it and let the discussions flow? Why moderate the other intellectuals in the movement at a site presenting itself as a sophisticated intellectual hub of the 9/11 Truth movement?)

There were also large protests against the US war on Vietnam in all major cities of Europe at that time.

Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot interview by Bev Collins on 911Talks Show

Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot was interviewed by Bev Collins on the “911 Talks” Radio Show on Oct 2, 2014 from 5 - 6 pm. Bev Collins asked how certain songs came to be written that were eventually released on 9/11/11 as "9/11 Truth & Justice Songs". 

 Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot Interview with Bev Collins

Songs Featured with full airplay were: The Ballad of WilliamRodriguez at Truth Troubadour, Cheney’s in the Bunker, Blowback or Bloody Treason at Truth Troubadour YouTube, and Trouble inthe Rubble at Truth Troubadour YouTube. Vic told about Thierry Meyssan of Voltaire Network - RĂ©seau Voltaire blog that questioned the Pentagon attack and David Ray Griffin's first writings as what moved him from the "blowback" to the "treason" perspective on 9/11. 

 Berkeley Broadside Balladeer Vic Sadot - Bev Collins Show
Vic Sadot singing in San Francisco with Professor Tony Hall on 9/11/11

Biographically, Vic told of how he had been influenced by Phil Ochs and the singer-songwriters in Broadside: The National Topical Song Magazine started by Sis Cunningham and Gordon Friesen in the 60's Greenwich Village folk music scene, which was inspired by the Civil Rights and Anti-War struggles of the times. Vic had the honor of breaking the story of Phil Ochs FBI Files story on the cover of Broadside in 1982. Vic met and interviewed his hero, Phil Ochs, in May  of 1973 (Free mp3 download at the Phil Ochs memorabilia and tribute site called No More Songs - The Phil Ochs Tribute & Memorabilia Site.

Vic told about how he moved to Berkeley, CA in 2008 thinking that KPFA would be a good place to get his songs heard. But he discovered a wall of gate-keeping at the Pacifica station except for a couple of independent volunteer shows like Project Censored and Guns and Butter Radio Show - Host Bonnie Faulkner. Fortunately, Vic said, there is No Lies Radio in San Francisco Bay are too. Vic praised Teri Perticone for discovering so many artists that sing topical singers. No Lies Radio can be heard on the internet 24/7 at 


Vic explained how he went to the DC Emergency Truth Convergence in Washington, DC in 2005 at the invitation of Janice Matthews of

Vic said that his eyes were opened to many aspects of the event as a false flag operation with intended policy consequences. He named some who were there, such as Nafeez Ahmed, and Paul Thompson who wrote "The 9/11 Timeline" later to be known as the History Commons. At that conference Vic met David Schlesinger who had the idea that Vic, as a folk singer, should write a song about William Rodriguez, the janitor hero of the World Trade Center, who went from being celebrated to being persona non-grata for not being willing to compromise the truth. Dave arranged for Vic to interview Willie and the song came out of that process. 

William Rodriguez's 9/11 Commission testimony was omitted as was that of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta's brief account of his time in the Presidential war bunker with Vice President Dick Cheney. Mineta cited 9:20 am as the time he first heard a young man questioning Cheney about the orders on the morning of 9/11/01. Vic explained that David Ray Griffin found the testimony of Mineta in a subcommittee report. That testimony about a plane approaching Washington after the World Trade Center Towers had already been hit "jumped off the page" as a great subject for the song, the one that would become "Cheney's in the Bunker". 
 September 11: The New Pearl Harbor by Max Mazzucco

Vic credited Michael C. Ruppert's "Crossing the Rubicon" as the inspiration for his song "Blowback or Bloody Treason". And Vic explained that "Trouble in the Rubble" came from reading a newspaper article by Amy Westfelt of the Associated Press about how the rescue dogs weren't suffering as much as the humans were from working in the rescue and removal work of the toxic dust and the "white-hot debris". 

 TROUBLE IN THE RUBBLE at Truth Troubadour Channel

Vic made sure to give musicians credits and he named his brother Rob Sadot as electric guitarist, Dean A. Banks as the keyboard and bass player, and R. B. Hunter (Rbeast) as the drummer and studio owner-engineer at the Tune Room in Wilmington, Delaware. Zone Parker was the guitarist on The Ballad of William Rodriguez. Vic was able to plug the fact that he has made videos for all of these songs at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. 

The recent 2014 9/11 Truth Film Festival held in the elegant Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, CA was another topic discussed. It is organized by volunteers from the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, a non-profit educational group with an active website at The entire event was live-streamed and has been preserved in the No Lies Radio archive with a donation pay per view system in place suggested at $15 but accepts anything even a penny. There are 13 segments that the viewers can pause, forward, rewind if they want to have focused conversations with friends and family. See
 The Bev Collins Show - 9/11 Let the Truth Be Told

Bev Collins asked Vic Sadot to talk about some of the movies at the 9/11 Film Festival at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, CA on 9/11/14. Vic praised Massimo Mazzucco's masterful new and comprehensive survey of what we know about 9/11 thirteen years after the tragic and pivotal events of that day. Titled "September 11: The New Pearl Harbor", it is a 5 hour tour de force. Both Bev and Vic recalled that David Ray Griffin calls Max Mazzucco's documentary of the best 9/11 films ever. It was shown in 3 segments with intermissions. Debuting film-maker David Hooper was there in person at the Grand Lake Theater. His film is about how his late-blooming 9/11 rude awakening nearly wrecked his marriage. In fact, that was why he made "An Anatomy of a Great Deception by David Hooper". He is quite humorous at times. But he is also dead serious about how important it is to wake other people like himself up. Vic also talked about how Robbie Martin's "American Anthrax by Robbie Martin" ties a lot of loose ends together and should be seen as part of the 9/11 crimes even though that wave of killing and fear happened a few weeks after. Robby Martin ties it into the passage of the Patriot Repression Act.

There was discussion of how difficult it is for singer-songwriters to get 9/11 Truth songs heard. Vic mentioned that he has a "Truth Troubadour Showcase" at his Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel and a parallel Facebook page with the same name to promote the singers in the showcase, a little over 30 truth troubadours who have made YouTube videos.

Vic quoted Pete Seeger at the end of the program. Pete said: “A singing movement is a winning movement. We're putting a world together before it blows itself apart. Over the years you'll find the magic made by the right song at the right place at the right time. Musicians can teach the politicians. It's fun to swap the lead. Musicians can teach the planners – economists, engineers, lawyers: plan for improvisation! Our greatest songs are yet unsung! So Rise up singing!

ANOTHER NINETEEN - One of the Greatest 9/11 Truth Books Yet!

Truth Troubadour Book Review 
"Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects"
by Kevin Ryan

"Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" by Kevin Ryan is one of the greatest 9/11 Truth books yet! And there have been some great ones, such as "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" and "The New Pearl Harbor Revisited" by David Ray Griffin, "Crossing the Rubicon" by the late Michael C. Ruppert, "Towers of Deception" by Barrie Zwicker, and "The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America" by Peter Dale Scott.

Official Kevin Ryan Book Site for “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”

The esteemed Professor of Literature at UC-Berkeley, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, wrote this endorsement for the work, "Over the last decade, Kevin Ryan has been one of the most intelligent and useful analysts of what happened on 9/11, on topics ranging from the scientific analyses of how the WTC towers collapsed to the broader political background of the event. It is a most welcome opportunity to have the fruits of his researches collected in a book."

 Kevin Ryan's Blog – “Dig Within”

What makes "Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" unique and important is that it names people who were in a position to make sure that the outcome was the one that happened. Kevin Ryan names another 19 suspects, a list that includes people who could order a US military stand-down; people who could control the media story; people who could terrorize Congress with anthrax attacks; people who had the means to use remote control of airliners; people who had access to nano thermite and to the steel frames of the World Trade Center towers that 19 Muslims would never have had in order to cause 10 second disintegration style demolitions; people who could assure that nobody got court martialed, fired, demoted, or even reprimanded as a consequence of the monumental failures of the day but rather rewarded; people who could create a marketable myth and control the exploitation of the lie for repressive laws and resource wars of choice abroad; people who could control and assure a cover-up of the crimes. Some of those named will be familiar if not expected to be suspected, such as Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, and NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, CIA Director George Tenet, FBI Director Louis Freeh, and Generals Myers and Eberhard.

Others named may not be as well-known to the public, but they held key positions of power that relate to the crime. They all had the means, motive, and opportunity, and they all benefited considerably from these crimes. These would be Frank Carlucci of the Carlyle Group, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Deputy Sec of State Richard Armitage, National Security Director Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Director Richard Clarke, Carl Truscott of the Secret Service, Deputy Secretary of Defense John Deutch and SAIC corporation, Paul Bremer, Brian Michael Jenkins, Wirt Walker of KuwAm, Barry McDaniel of Stratesec, as well as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and other NeoCons from the Project for the New American Century calling for a "new Pearl Harbor".

Two good introductions to the book are the interviews done with Kevin Ryan by Abby Martin on "Breaking the Set" on RT and Bonnie Faulkner on "Guns & Butter" Pacifica Radio Network.

9/11:The 19 Suspects the Government Wants to Hide”  (10:40) | Think Tank 9-10-13 Abby Martin speaks with Kevin Ryan, co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and author of 'Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects', a book that explores 19 alternative suspects that he alleges had the real means and motive to pull of the 9/11 attacks. 

The information in "Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" is detailed and documented in a scholarly manner with a common sense language in the tradition of Tom Paine. It makes a solid case for why these individuals should be investigated as "suspects". If these suspects are guilty of the crimes of 9/11, then a prosecution and conviction of them would completely change human history, bring hope and justice to the world, and end the phony "war on terror". The lies and myths of 9/11 have been used for destabilizing and attacking numerous weaker countries with valuable resources and strategic locations. 9/11 was used as the justification for illegal kidnappings and torture, the removal of fundamental rights like habeas corpus from the common law and the inalienable Bill of Rights in the US Constitution, and the placement of puppet regimes to privatize and militarize the earth under fewer further consolidated global corporations.

Of particular interest are the actual creators of the "War on Terror", people who wrote about it and pumped it up for years and then posed in media interviews as "experts" on the subject that they profited from in the aftermath of the tragedy. Florida Republican Senator Porter Goss, a former CIA operative, and Senator Bob Graham played key roles in the Congressional "investigation" that pre-dated the ill-fated President George Bush mandated 9/11 Commission headed by Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, but really run by Executive Director Philip D. Zelikow, an Assistant National Security Director to Condoleezza Rice, who should have been investigated instead of investigating and was opposed by 9/11 victim families, such as the Jersey Girls in the documentary titled "Press for Truth".

Lorie Van Auken, member of the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission and widow of Kenneth Van Auken who was killed at the World Trade Center, said, "Kevin Ryan has written a book that reminds us that the attacks of September 11, 2001 and their details have never fully been investigated. Kevin has laid out the historic framework in a way that has never been done before."
And Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, who was killed at the World trade Center, said, "Finally a comprehensive and meticulously researched book that thoroughly details what occurred before and on 9/11. Without a doubt, Another Nineteen should be required reading for those who want the real story."

It may seem depressing to take a deeper look into the darker side of the US corporate oligarchy captured state apparatus of the Republic of the United States. However, it is liberating and enlightening for those who break on through the mind numbing matrix to an analysis of the crimes that makes sense of the event and the exploitation of it.
