Letter to the U.W.-Madison community, Sept. 1st 2011

Here is a smaller-scale image of the big quarter-page ad running this week in the Madison, WI Isthmus (circulation 60,000). It's in a prime location: the movie review page!

If you agree with us that it's important to contest the media's 9/11 lies, especially around the tenth anniversary of the event, please consider helping cover the costs of this ad - about $850 - and other publicity efforts. Contact: UWsifting(at)gmail(dot)com, bobreuschlein(at)gmail(dot)com, or kbarrett(at)merr(dot)com.

The following email from the Sifting and Winnowing Club was emailed to roughly 50,000 University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty, staff and students on September 1st, 2011.

To the U.W.-Madison campus community,

The University of Wisconsin-Madison SIFTING AND WINNOWING CLUB aims to foster research, dialogue and debate on the most significant controversial issues. To join, or to receive more information, hit "reply" or email UWsifting(at) , or join us in the Paul Bunyan Room of Memorial Union, 7 pm, on the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

The issues we're covering this fall are highly significant and controversial: The debates surrounding what really happened on September 11th, 2001; October 25th, 2002; and November 22nd, 1963; and the question of whether the US is dominated by an economy-destroying military-industrial complex. All events are free and open to the campus community.

World premiere of the new Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth film "9/11: Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out." (Watch the trailer.)

Any U.W. system professor, lecturer or instructor is eligible to earn a $1,000 honorarium by debating Dr. Barrett; yet as of this writing there are no takers. Please ask YOUR teachers here at the UW to support free speech and debate Dr. Barrett, who was hounded from his teaching job for making historical arguments that nobody at the U.W. is willing to oppose in a public debate. (See the text of the full-page ad that appeared in the Isthmus last spring, appended below.)
