Thanks to her, I found the article in Journal of Engineering Mechanics that I analyzed in my first blog entry.
Ms. Carter discussed it here:
This blog entry was also my first encounter with the ridiculous, unproductive attacks on people that question whether faked images were televised on 9/11.
She made a mistake in calculations, but so what? The paper is exactly the kind of material we need to be analyzing, and I think the paper proves just what she said it did. I'm sure I have made mistakes, too, and want people to point them out. If I am wrong, I want to know it. Telling me I'm an idiot or a shill for wondering about it won't work.
Ms. Carter is interviewed here, and I think she makes some great points, especially about psychological warfare and the media's military role.
That reminds of the reports in 2000 of Army psychological operation officers working at CNN:
Where they there to learn or to teach? Does it matter?
Could the invasion of Iraq have occurred without the media's blind parroting of government propaganda? Does the New York Times' after-the-fact mea culpa mean anything, or is it just an attempt to restore their credibility for the next war?
Isn't the media a tool of the government , unwitting or not, for invading the sovereignty of our minds to get us to support the invasion of other countries? This is indeed psychological warfare.
Thanks again, Ms. Carter, for the great ideas.
