This is an article I hate to write but write it I must. Sigh, food fights are such a waste of time and energy.
After my radio appearance on the Pete Santilli Show, episode #321 on Friday, January 18, 2013, Jim Fetzer, ever quick-on-the-draw, called that evening and left me the following voice mail: “Morgan, this is Jim Fetzer. I’m pretty disturbed by what I’m hearing. What in God’s name is going on? You think I had something to do with Michael Zebuhr’s murder? You think I’m some kind of disinformation op? I mean Morgan, what the fuck is going on?”
During the show I answered Santilli’s penetrating questions as honestly as I could but that was insufficient for Fetzer and his foot soldiers, who obviously demanded a vigorous, real-time defense of Jim Fetzer. A couple of Fetzer supporters sent emails calling me a disgrace and better yet, “human garbage.”
On Fetzer’s two questions, here are the answers :
- For the record, I never thought for a minute Jim Fetzer had anything to do with Michael Zebuhr’s murder so naturally I never suggested that he did. Never. Pete Santilli found Fetzer’s behavior odd, but never accused Fetzer of participating in a murder plot. Of course there is no proof to back up such an accusation either. Apparently, Fetzer was so agitated about the show that he threatened to sue American Freedom Radio which, in turn, wimped out and fired Santilli.
- Is Fetzer a disinfo op? I don’t know his motive(s). I still cannot figure him out. There may be no incriminating pay stubs (!) but my friend Andrew Johnson in England concludes that the evidence proves Fetzer is an op, and Pete Santilli seems to concur.
- Whatever Fetzer’s motives, his zig zag behavior means he is in the way. His latest gambit pushes nukes as causing the destruction of the World Trade Center and boosts proselytizers like Chuck Boldwyn (‘Buddy Hackett on speed’ according to one wag). Nukes are outright impossible because kinetic weapons of any kind contradict already known facts. That puts the nuke/kinetic diversion on a par with Steven E. Jones’ defunct thermite scam. Shuck and jive, confuse and delay, obstruct and hinder, it helps the perps. Why does Fetzer behave this way? Got me. It’s not a lack of IQ points. Op? Poor judgment? Poor scholarship? Fetzer has admitted he has not read Wood’s magnificent volume showing us what happened and he continues to display his ignorance. Inexcusable. Does his ‘big tent philosophy’ interfere with separating wheat from chaff? Is he just wrong a lot like ‘luminaries’ Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and John Maynard Keynes?
Let’s return to the extraordinary death of Michael Zebuhr. Early in 2006 Michael, 25, was a new graduate student in engineering at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. He was a native of Buchannon, WV, and a graduate of nearby Davis and Elkins College in Elkins, WV (my wife graduated from D&E in 1995), where Michael was an outstanding student in chemistry. A murder victim in a Minneapolis armed robbery, Michael was a student member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth (see www.st911.org ) founded by James Fetzer and a student in an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering class with Professor Judy Wood, the leading scientific investigator of 9/11and author of Where Did the Towers Go? The facts about Michael’s murder led several professors, including me, to wonder if MZ was killed—not because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time—but because of his participation in the effort to expose 9/11 as a false flag operation. Michael was working with Dr. Wood on a lab demonstration about aluminum glowing to settle a 9/11 controversy, displayed tremendous enthusiasm in starting a campus 9/11 group and his uncle Bill Zebuhr worked with Eugene Mallove, author of the book “Cold Fusion,” in an energy foundation. Free energy is directly linked to 9/11. To increase suspicion, Eugene Mallove was also killed in an armed robbery in May, 2004. Before he left on his fatal trip to Minneapolis, Michael said to Dr. Wood: “Promise me, no matter what happens, you will never stop pursuing this. Nothing is more important.”
I called Judy Wood the first time after Michael’s murder and asked her, “What’s the matter with Jim Fetzer?” My complaint was that Fetzer seemed incurious about the murder. Here was an assassination science researcher and a student member of his new society—Scholars for 9/11 Truth—had just been murdered. I wanted to know, was Michael’s murder connected with 9/11? Was his murder supposed to send a message to Dr. Wood and other 9/11 researchers? Or was it just a robbery gone bad?
Since I was traveling in Minnesota in August, 2008, I had an opportunity to visit and photograph the crime scene in Minneapolis as well as interview one of two black youths, Donte L. Jacobs, convicted of the armed robbery that ended Michael’s life. The interview took place 60 miles northwest of Minneapolis in the St. Cloud “correctional facility,” an old-style foreboding granite stone prison that serves as the intake center for the Minnesota prison system. As a result of this nearly two-hour interview and previous facts established about the murder, I concluded Michael’s murder had no connection to 9/11 or Dr. Wood. Yes, I could be wrong but I doubt it.
And Professor Fetzer’s missteps? In his grandiosity, he responds to criticism like King Lear: “I am a man more sinned against than sinning.” No one accused Fetzer of Michael’s murder yet he screams for vindication? He appoints “cold fusion” disinfo agent and ‘termite’ Pied Piper Steven E. Jones as his chief sidekick in Scholars, condemns research results on no 9/11 planes without studying the evidence, facilitates Greg Jenkins’ ambush interview of Dr. Judy Wood in January 2007, trashes John Hutchison as a fraud absent serious investigation, disparages Dr. Wood’s book and claims it does not contain information that it actually does contain, and on and on. Fetzer’s got a lot of nerve to call Judy Wood “scientifically irresponsible.” Can you say ‘Disappointing’? Mr. P puts it to the oh-so responsible Fetzer: “Was the lethal radiation shipped to China along with the invisible steel?” One sentence to blow up Fetzer’s pet nuke theory.
