Honegger at Respectable Truth Sites
One of our commenters griped about my mention of Barbara Honegger in the previous post, and suggested:
Simple test: register at a large truther site or forum that has a track record of not putting up with the fringies and ask what they think of Honegger.
Well, I hardly think that TruthAction would accept my registration. But let's look at some of the larger Truth sites and see what they have to say about the Munchkin.
How about starting with 911truth.org?
In December 2007 (well after I did my series on Honegger, she was noted as a featured speaker at the Boston Tea Party:
Ray McGovern, (see above) will be among the featured speakers at the evening presentation, along with Nancy Murray, Director of Education for the Massachusetts chapter of the ACLU. Military analyst and former aide to President Reagan, Barbara Honegger, and Donna Marsh O'Connor, professor of Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University (retired) and mother of 911 victim Vanessa Lang Langer, who died in Tower 2 on 93rd floor will also be making presentations. Other speakers may be added to the program.
In March of 2009, she was cited as among the charter members of Political Leaders for 9-11 Truth:
Barbara Honegger, former White House Policy Analyst and Special Assistant to the Assistant to President Ronald Reagan (1981 - 1983). (Charter Member of PL911Truth)
Honegger was also mentioned in 2008 as appearing in the movie Zero:
Question: ‘How do you propose to reopen the investigation?’
Chiesa: ‘The film is the primary instrument to get the debate going. It is a collection of discoveries, by many respected researches from around the globe (the film features, among others, Gore Vidal, Sibel Edmonds, Dario Fo, David Ray Griffin, Dr Steven Jones, Dr Kevin Ryan, Webster Tarpley, Barbara Honegger, FAA-controllers, USAF pilots, military commanders, physicists – ed. note). But they are still questions. The movie doesn’t provide the answers. It only lays bare the questions that remain, that were left unanswered by the official investigation and need to be answered by the US government.’
How about 911Blogger?
In September of 2007, she appeared on Air America, and the Truthers were aglow:
Yesterday, Sunday September 2nd, 2007, the disciplined effort of an LA Truther paid off in getting Webster Tarpley and Barbara Honegger an hour of air time on KTLK-AM1150, the local affiliate of Air America. Through engaging host Johnny Wendell in a serious 9-11 Truth dialogue over a course of many hours on the internet, she was able to get Wendell to invite Tarpley and Honegger, on very short notice, onto a show from 3-4pm he was guest-hosting for Joe McDonnell.
Note that there are no comments there decrying Honegger's appearance.
Truth Action does have some mention of Honegger, but not much.
Here's she's being touted as a speaker in LA:
SATURDAY TALK BY BARBARA HONNEGER (See www.911truthla.net for details)
Again, please note this reminder regarding Saturday's talk at the Unurban Cafe (details at www.911truthla.net). Barbara Honegger is a senior military affairs journalist, author of the historic Irangate expose' October Surprise, the first public resignation of conscience from the Reagan-Bush Administration, and author of the breakthrough 9/11 truth white paper "The Pentagon Attack Papers". Ms. Honegger is the 9/11 whistle blower who first connected the multiple military & intelligence war games and mass casualty exercises, which the Bush Administration was holding the morning of 9/11, to the scenario of planes crashing into buildings.
Victronix (aka Victoria Ashley, wife of Jim Hoffman) noted that there were problems with her:
Barrett and Honegger were there last year and the crowd didn't seem very large (I complained on blogger last year and no one knew who Honegger was, so couldn't understand anyone's issues with her), so the end result of mixing them with our best researchers is to provide false credibility for them on the internet, when the videos go up putting them altogether and the news stories come out with quotes, etc.
John Bursill mentioned the speakers featured in an Aussie film on 9-11 Troof:
Prof NAFEEZ AHMED -Director, Institute for Policy Research & Development, London
BARBARA HONEGGER - Senior Military Affairs Journalist, Naval Postgraduate School
GHALI HASSAN - Iraqi writer, Political Analyst, Perth
THIERRY MEYSSAN - Director, Voltaire Network, Paris
RALPH SCHOENMAN - Radio Host, Taking Aim
Here's another one with Victronix (apparently the only "respectable" troofer) pointing out a problem with Honegger that I admit I had not heard before:
I could list them, starting with the hoax LA911truth Grand Jury that featured Honegger saying that the shoebomber is actually Osama (a presentation based on facial similarities) and anti-semite Christoper Bollyn claiming that a plane couldn't have hit the Pentagon.
Wow. Richard Reid is Osama? LOL!
At any rate, you would really have to search 9-11 Troof sites very hard to find any negative comments about her.
