Description

The Elephant in the Room is a documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of ‘conspiracy theorists’ who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate. The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event. Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy theorists? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement? You decide.

Manny Badillo

Manny Badillo was born and raised in NYC. His Uncle, Thomas Joseph Sgroi was the Vice President of Internet Technology at Marsh and McLellen. His body was found two months after the attacks with 36 other bodies over the course of four days.

Co-workers said Mr. Sgroi was going to get some coffee via the express elevator just before the plane hit the north tower. The official cause of death by the NYC Medical Examiners office was asphyxiation.

Manuel, just like the vast majority of the American and world citizenry, believed the official US government's account. Manuel joined We Are Change on January 4th, 2006 and steadfastly remains dedicated to pursuing justice for the dead and dying of 9/11.

John Feal

After the tragic events of September 11th 2001, 34 year old demolition supervisor John Feal joined the army of blue-collar workers converging on the smouldering wreckage of the World Trade Center for the largest recovery operation in American history.

Feal, like countless others, raced into the toxic cloud at the ruins of the WTC, unknowingly inhaling a toxic stew of asbestos, dioxins, benzene, lead, mercury, powdered glass, and more than 2,000 other deadly toxins. On September 17, John, who worked mainly at the controversial site of building 7 was horribly injured during the frenzied, dangerous clean up.

Since 2003, John has acted as a leading advocate for 9/11 heroes who were denied both the benefits promised by the federal, state and local governments and the charitable aid collected on their behalf. He is the founding member of the Feal Good Foundation, an organisation that is dedicated to helping 9/11 workers.

He still works for the same company that used to occupy floors 90 and 94-97 of the South Tower and lost 87 employees plus many contractors. Because of an unusual piece of work that he was involved in on the weekend prior to 9/11 he found himself at home witnessing the events from his apartment.

"I was at home on the morning of 9/11 on the shore of Jersey City, right opposite the Towers, and watching events unfold. I was convinced immediately that something was happening related to the weekend work.."

Richard Gage

Richard Gage is the founding member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth. He has been a practicing architect for 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings.

He is employed with a San Francisco Bay Area architecture firm and has most recently performed Construction Administration services for a new $120M High School campus including a $10M steel-framed Gymnasium.

Currently he is working on the Design Development for a very large mixed use urban project with 1.2M sq.ft. of retail and 320K sq.ft of mid-rise office space - altogether about 1,200 tons of steel framing.

"We call upon Congress for a truly independent investigation with subpoena power. We believe that there may be sufficient evidence to conclude that the World Trade Center buildings #1 (North Tower), #2 (South Tower), and #7 (the 47 storey high-rise across Vessey St.) were destroyed not by jet impact and fires but by controlled demolition with explosives."

He has been featured as a prominent figure of the 9/11 Truth Movement in such publications as The New York Times, Vanity Fair and Popular Mechanics.

In a July 2001 television taping Jones appears to predict the events of 9/11 when he warned that the Globalists were going to attack New York and blame it on their asset Osama bin Laden. View the clip here.

As a result of this, his radio shows and films, he is seen as a leading figure in the US 9/11 Truth Movement.

Cynthia McKinney

Cynthia McKinney

Since being elected in 1992 as the first African-American Congresswoman from Georgia, Cynthia Ann McKinney has gained national and international renown as a tireless advocate for human rights, voting rights and holding government accountable.

McKinney's voting record reflects her philosophy that government should serve to provide uplift to local communities and the dignity of the human spirit. She is known as a passionate, intelligent, charismatic and effective member of the House of Representatives and of the Democratic Party.

After ten years of service, Congresswoman McKinney lost her seat in 2002 thanks to a concerted effort by Republicans to organise voters to "cross over" and vote against her in the Democratic Primaries. McKinney made a stunning comeback in 2004, a year in which Republicans took firm control of both Chambers of Congress and the White House, when she was elected once again to represent Georgia's Fourth District.

Upon returning to Congress, McKinney brought ten years of experience with her, but was denied her seniority status and her seat on the International Relations Committee.

This has not kept her from taking on challenging and controversial issues. On the first anniversary of the release of the 9/11 Commission Report, McKinney presided at a Congressional Briefing where dozens of experts and family members of 9/11 victims gave nine hours of testimony critiquing the Report's errors, omissions and recommendations.

She was defeated again in the 2006 Democratic primary where she paid the ultimate political price for daring to ask the question "what did the Bush Administration know and when did it know it about the tragic events of September 11th".

Experienced years of depression and isolation because of his experience during the lead up to the collapse of building 7, the third skyscraper that fell on 9/11 and now suffers from respiratory problems.

"Our country's been taken over by these nasty corporate giants, and they seem to have given our government HIV. And us in the 9/11 truth movement, we're the white blood cells. We're the ones holding it back. We're suffering from a bad infection."

William Rodriguez

William Rodriguez

William Rodriguez is a native of Puerto Rico, a citizen of the United States and a resident of the State of New Jersey. On September 11, 2001, and for approximately nineteen years prior thereto, Rodriguez was employed as a maintenance worker at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York and was the last man to run out of the World Trade Center. Had he made it to work on time, he and the master key to the stairwells would have been near the top of the complex when the second plane hit.

Instead, he raced up the stairwells he had maintained for 20 years to unlock doors and help people escape. Credited with saving many lives, he received a National Hero Award from the Senate of Puerto Rico and organised the Hispanic Victims Group.

Like many others who lost family or were personally involved in Sept. 11, Mr. Rodriguez is convinced that much of what happened that day is still behind locked doors.

Rodriguez lost his employment of 19 years and his means of earning a living as a direct result of the attacks on the WTC on 9/11. Deeply affected, as one might imagine, by his experiences of 9/11, Rodriguez has, in a variety of capacities and through several different organisations, worked ever since that terrible day to help others who were affected by the atrocities committed.
