My Really, Really Bad Judy Wood Experience

My Really, Really Bad Judy Wood Experience
by Reprehensor

(With the recent publication of Jeremy Baker’s essay, “Three Amigos: Reynolds, Wood and Fetzer’s assault on 9/11 Truth”, I think it is important for people to know that Baker is not the only person to have serious reservations about this particular trio. Especially since Judy Wood’s ideas have cropped up again, and have been circulated in a Draft Bill that does not have the unanimous support of 9/11 Truthers, but has already been presented to a few members of Congress. Specifically, this blog entry is about an on-air attack on Steven Jones that occurred in 2006, that reveals planning, and forethought on behalf of the “Three Amigos”. -rep.)

“(How is a tower like a tree?)
Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy would
(Where was the hidden energy?)
La la la la la la la la la la la la
(Can we solve this mystery?)
Judy Wood”

– lyrics from “Judy Would” by Ace Baker.

In the beginning…

In 2005, Dr. Judy Wood joined the DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) message board where I had already been a member for a couple of years. She used the handle “janedoe” and would engage in back and forth posting battles with the resident 9/11 trolls and debunkers, with varying degrees of success. Wood seemed a natural ally, and I engaged in some friendly correspondence with janedoe, via the DU message board, which later moved to email communications…
When Steven Jones publicly posted his paper, “Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?” in late 2005, he attracted the attention of James Fetzer, and they co-founded the original Scholars for 9/11 Truth group. By the time that Jones did his first major public lecture in Utah, in February of 2006, Wood had established contact with Jones, looking to join the Scholars. Soon, Morgan Reynolds would also be a member. Wood’s participation at DU dropped off considerably.
In the space of a few short months, the original Scholars group was building up a large membership, and by June of 2006, Jones had become popular enough within the 9/11 Truth community that he was delivering the Keynote address at the Chicago 9/11 Truth conference, and it really seemed that the Scholars had some serious momentum.
By the beginning of August, 2006, Judy Wood and Morgan Reynolds had decided to put a halt to Steven Jones’ momentum.

An Open Letter about the Subject of Disinformation and Disruption within the 9/11 Truth Movement

An Open Letter about the Subject of Disinformation and Disruption within the 9/11 Truth Movement

By Arabesque

September 7, 2008

In my humble opinion, the issue of disinformation and disruption is of critical importance to the success of the 9/11 truth movement. In fact, as I have argued, the official story of 9/11 itself is disinformation; a deliberate attempt to mislead the public about the truth about 9/11. As I have said:

“The official story of 9/11 is disinformation, which means that the subject of disinformation is a vital and essential topic of 9/11 discussion. The opinion that disinformation is ‘extraordinarily low’ in this movement misses the mark by a long-shot since the very purpose of our movement is to expose the disinformation of the official story of 9/11. We cannot avoid the subject of disinformation.”

As controversial 9/11 researcher Jim Fetzer explains:

“One of the telling signs of many disinformation artists (who may or may not be gainfully employed by some ‘shadowy government agency’) is that a lot of their claims are simply too strong to be true… I am not suggesting that any of them works for the NSA, the CIA, or the FBI. That creates an exaggerated version of the situation as I see it that makes it easy to satirize. I have no idea why they are doing what they are doing. But there are ample grounds based upon past experience to believe they are abusing logic and language to mislead and deceive others about the state of research… On the basis of my experience with them, I believe this is deliberate. Their function appears to me to be obfuscation… There is a serious disinformation movement afoot, one that finds the work of those they attack to be too good to ignore. Disinformation… is the major obstacle to the search for truth about the death of JFK.”

Jim Fetzer, Signs of Disinformation

First of all, I want to make absolutely clear that I do not endorse or approve of allegations or speculation that cannot be proven. As I have written:

FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, in a letter entitled Disruption of the New Left explained that activist groups would be neutralized through various means including “the instigating of or the taking advantage of personal conflicts or animosities existing between New Left leaders… hostility should be exploited wherever possible…” According to Brian Glick, this would be partly achieved through infiltration, “[agents] and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt… set up pseudo movement groups run by government agents.”… False and misleading accusations are frequently and effectively used by agent provocateurs. The most common accusation within the 9/11 truth movement is that a 9/11 researcher or activist is an “agent” working for the US government… 9/11 activists should be wary of any and all accusations that are not readily supported by credible evidence, facts, or documentation. Ultimately, false and misleading accusations create divisiveness and encourage hostility.

As I concluded in elsewhere the end result of disinformation or misinformation is the same, regardless of intent:

Those who care about the truth about 9/11 should also care about disinformation and misinformation. All 9/11 “official story” skeptics agree that the 9/11 commission report consists of substantial disinformation… The truth about 9/11 is of primary importance. If we accept this to be true, then it is also true that all misleading arguments are harmful to this cause. Therefore, the intent involved in promoting misleading arguments is irrelevant. Arguments based on disinformation and misinformation will almost always result in false, incomplete, inaccurate, and misleading conclusions.
