Student Group Screens
9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out
at Arizona State University

ASU-screeningArizona State University students had a lively discussion about the explosive 9/11 evidence after the on-campus screening of Experts Speak Out

On the recent 12th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 World Trade Center attack, the 9/11 Studies & Outreach Club at ASU hosted its inaugural public outreach event. Roughly 30 students and local activists packed into the conference room at the Memorial Union to watch 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out. A lively discussion ensued.

A brief show of hands before the movie revealed that nobody in the crowd believed the official story, and only two were unsure. Based on the lopsided survey, event organizers elected to show just the first half hour of Experts Speak Out, which features the destruction of Building 7 and an introduction to the science behind controlled demolition. At least five people walked in during the film, but nobody walked out.

Some students chuckled at the nonsensical NIST computer simulation of WTC 7, which stops halfway and looks nothing like the nearly symmetrical collapse seen in videos. “It’s no wonder that NIST refuses to release the contrived input data it used to make its model behave even remotely like the actual event," noted event organizer Steve Cohn.

Many were experiencing the evidence documented in the film for the first time, including Brianna Murphy, a pre-med at ASU, who said, “After I watched the AE911Truth video , I was reminded of how the official account of how the three towers came down doesn’t make sense. ASU-flyerEvery college is ready for 9/11 Truth -- if determined students across the country hold events like the one at ASUSpecifically, the idea that WTC Building 7 came straight down from a few office fires is illogical.”

Global Health major Hayley Miller was impressed by the unbiased nature of the experts. “The information was great because it was strictly scientific. A lot of other sources get very opinion-based, and it was refreshing to have the facts presented in a non-political way,” she said.

Before the Q&A discussion, the attendees held a 15-second period of silence to remember the 9/11 victims and their families. Following this was a reflective and forward-looking conversation about the United States government’s foreign policy and domestic spying programs, all based on the official 9/11 story. Leading the discussion were several members of the AE911Truth Phoenix Action Group, who attended in support of the ASU Club, as well as five student club members.

Those who attended were excited to be able to talk about this topic openly. Many students are unwilling to talk about 9/11 Truth with their friends or professors, for fear of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist” or an outside-the-box thinker. (Imagine being snubbed for thinking independently!) This club may be just what they need, like a support group that heals its own members by educating outsiders.

Miller expressed relief afterwards that the movie wasn’t just a one-time, sponsored event: “I was really surprised when I found out that ASU had a student organization that we could all remain involved in.” She has since agreed to handle the club’s social media.

The event was not the first time Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have been welcomed at ASU’s main campus. In January 2013, Phoenix Action Group organizer Pamela Senzee was invited to give a teach-in on campus for the ‘Local to Global Justice’ convention, where she talked about her life-changing journey riding her bicycle across the country to raise awareness for AE911Truth. Pam and fellow rider Rena Patty documented their amazing trip with vividly written blogs at

In attendance at this teach-in was Jeffrey Russeau, a senior in electrical engineering, who went on to form the 9/11 Studies club. Jeffrey expects to organize a larger event later in the semester and plans to invite AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, or another expert from the film. He said, “We have club funding to bring in a distinguished speaker, and who would be better than Mr. Gage himself.” It’s safe to say the answer is “Yes, ASU IS ready for 9/11 Truth.”

The 9/11 Studies & Outreach Club at ASU is an independent Action Group affiliated with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. You can email Steve Cohn, the AE911Truth College Outreach Team Leader, for questions about this club or for help in forming your own.
