9/11 Victim Family Member Comments On Kevin Barrett
Kevin Barrett is starting to replace Jim Fetzer on my list of people to despise. From an article in the Leader-Telegram on one of his appearances:
Barrett, who had some state politicians calling for his firing last year after his government conspiracy theories gained national attention while he was teaching a course on Islam at UW-Madison, shared his controversial opinions Friday evening in a speech at Altoona Public Library.It continues later:
Vince Statz, a Chippewa Falls man whose 41-year-old daughter, Patty, was killed in the attack on the Pentagon, said Barrett's wacky ideas are an insult to the memory of those who died on Sept. 11.'He's an idiot,' Statz said. 'I don't know why people even give him the time of day.'
'Debunking 9/11 Myths,' however, offers the most irrefutable evidence of all that Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon by pointing out that all but five of the 189 people who died on the aircraft or in the Pentagon were identified through DNA testing.
Barrett's suggestion that a passenger plane didn't strike the Pentagon that day is ludicrous, said Vince Statz, the father of Patty Statz, a Chippewa Falls native and 1979 McDonell High School graduate who worked at the Pentagon.
Her body was identified three weeks after the attack.'That plane came in right where Patty's office was,' Statz said. 'They found pieces of the plane in the Pentagon.'
