Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Fake activist org with overblown claims to credibility, with chapters in many US cities; Glenn Goldman's Portland AE truth listserve is one, with subsidiary website run by David Fura where so recently Waldron was caught lying about meeting times.

High percentage of members involved in cultlike scams; nonetheless org is expert at projecting professionalism,  able to appear above it all.   Leader, Richard Gage draws at least a five figure income from "full time activism".  If that ain't a cult leader, don't know what is.

AE 9/11 Truth and the Moonies

Again we have that wacky cult and conspiracy conjunction, this time with the Unification Church aka Moonies, a connection shared with Portland group associate Jim Fetzer.

In their bawl worthy press release, AE 911 truth complains they're being ignored:

 1,000 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth signatures press conference ignored by world media     Friday, 26 February 2010

On Feb. 19, 2010, Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth held a press conference at the Mariner's Club & Hotel in San Francisco, CA, USA, announced the milestone of having achieved in excess of 1,000 signatures from architects and engineers from around the world, demanding a new, truly independent investigation of the facts regarding the events of Sept. 11, 2001, saying that the conclusions drawn by the 911 Commission reek of cover-up, are not at all supported by the facts.
Article mirrored at the Examiner by Sterling Allan, who notes story is picked up by the Washington Times by Jennifer Harper:

Explosive News - How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center. (Washington Times  Feb. 22, 2010)
According to that other wiki, The Washinton Times was founded by the Moonies:

The Washington Times is a daily broadsheet newspaper published in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. It was founded in 1982 by Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon, and until 2010 was owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate associated with the church.

If the story is ignored by the world media,  how did the Washington Times  know about it?  A connection  with AE 911 Truth and the Unification Church?

And why would the Moonies care?  Are the donations to AE 9/11 Truth another scam to fill the Moonies cofferes?

Endorsement spam from group members

I'm reading entirely too much credulity here regarding the existence of the eeeevil al Quesadilla and the messages it transmits though a private intelligence gathering group (SITE) which cannot be independently verified, ever.
In other news, there are now more than five hundred architectural and engineering professionals on record calling for an independent investigation of the WTC destruction:
