This is an exclusive Media Roots Radio interview with Utah based documentarian Brett Smith, conducted by Abby and Robbie Martin on February 23, 2011. In 2006, Brett’s love of films drew him into taking a film class where he was required to make a 15 minute short. That 15 minute short later turned into 40 minute documentary called Hypothesis.

Hypothesis is a documentary that follows physics professor Steven E. Jones during a pivotal time in his life. In 2005, Jones went public with a theory about 9/11 that was so controversial, it resulted in everything from hate mail, threats, and even bribery to try to end his research. Despite the outside pressures, Jones vowed to never give up on his pursuit of the truth.

    I hope there’s no misunderstanding when I say, ‘No F’ing DUH!’. While I appreciate the efforts of the filmmaker and certainly the courage of the physics professor willing to put his reputation on the line for such a position (I have yet to see the film but I will), does it really have to take a ‘controversial’ documentary like this to keep bringing attention to the fact that the towers (not to mention the suspicious facts surrounding the Pentagon attack and the plane that was eviscerated in PA) fell by controlled demolition? I know nothing about controlled demolition but even I remember thinking that those towers looked awfully strange as they fell. Only later as I did even cursory research into what happened that day did it become clear that obviously the towers were demo’d and that you’d have to be so deluded and so indoctrinated into our system believing the mantra of American jingoist rhetoric to not see that. It ain’t conspiracy…it’s way way WAY above that silly dismissive charge.

    Here’s the rub on this though…..sure I believe the towers fell by controlled demo. It doesn’t mean I believe the American government is responsible or that GW Bush is responsible or the illuminati or the freemasons or whatever. I’m saying I don’t know who did it. But I do know that what happened that day does not at all reflect the official story and I would like a new investigation. Enough of the bullsh-t.

      You are aware that there was like four or five investigations by separate organizations, aren’t you? And that they reached the same conclusions? Because they are experts on things like physics and engineering?

      • Honu

        I’m not sure what your reply is in regards to exactly. If you’re arguing for the official story then pooh on you. If not, then cheers!

    • Voice of Reason

      “I know nothing about controlled demolition…”

      “I believe the towers fell by controlled demo”

      So basically you’re saying that you’re willing to believe something that you have no expertise in, and you are unwilling to accept testimony from actual experts (Conspiracy theorists that don’t understand that while steel does not burn at jet-fuel temperature, it WEAKENS enough to cause critical failures don’t count).

      Yeah, go on and lecture about everyone else being deluded and indoctrinated into rhetoric. There’s plenty of shit actually going on that deserves attention. You’re only distracting from actual battles like suspension of Habeas Corpus, widespread federal wiretapping, and corporate purchasing of our political system.

      Seriously, be angry, but stop being retarded.

A Shock To The West: Muslims Want Democracy

I can’t quite settle on what shocked the West more: 9/11 or the popular democratic uprisings sweeping throughout the Middle East. 9/11 certainly came easier for some to explain. Testament...
