Lt. Col. Bob Bowman Urges Civility

Lt. Col. Bob Bowman, speaking on Kevin Barrett's "9/11 and Empire" radio show on WTPRN Radio Network, Dec. 11th, 2007 in Hour 1 of this 2 hour show.

Dr. Bob Bowman urges activists to "be as professional, responsible and courteous as possible, as opposed to obnoxious, if we're going to make more inroads!" (ie civility)

Partial Transcript follows.
Kevin Barrett:
"The last time you were on the show, we talked about, the question of, how to get up in the faces of people in public, to raise the issues of 9/11 (and they are being suppressed everywhere) and since then, there have been all sorts of these events in which people, ranging from Bill and Hillary Clinton, to of course Rudy Giuliani (who gets 9/11 Truth people in his face everywhere he shows it) to even Bill Maher, who was interrupted on live TV. And in fact, I actually rather politely did question Amy Goodman about Building 7 on a very popular YouTube video. So, you know, last time you were arguing that people bullhorning Amy Goodman were barking up the wrong tree. Ah, can you sort of reiterate your thoughts on this issue, of how to confront people in public, given that this is the 11th of the month, and people all over the world have been out doing public actions for 9/11 Truth visibility ?

Bob Bowman:
"Yeah, I think we have to do public actions. I think we have to make our voices heard. But the establishment has tried to paint us as a bunch of kooks and wild-eyed crazies, and, we don't want to come across that way. And I think that, by being just as professional and responsible as we possibly can, and courteous, we're going to make more inroads than if we get obnoxious. Now, you know, I would be very tempted myself to get obnoxious with Rudy Giuliani, I think he deserves it. But I think for example that, to get obnoxious with Bill Clinton is a losing proposition, because, let's face it, he is a very popular guy, and I don't think we're gonna win friends that way. So I think we have to be very careful, very selective, and very thoughtful in deciding what actions to go forward with."
