We at the International Center for 9/11 Justice are honored to share Edward Curtin’s just-published review of Peace, War and 9/11, IC911’s new film featuring the late Graeme MacQueen. We encourage you to share it as well!
It is one thing to read a review of this important and compelling film — a tour de force — and another to watch it. The former fades into insignificance when one takes an hour-and-a-half to immerse oneself in its tragic yet revelatory story. For in it we see and hear a dying man speak eloquently of how he accepted the role that life brought him — a 9/11 truthteller and peace apostle — and now, as he departs the stage, hopes this last effort will ease his exit and help fulfill his mission as a man of peace.
Because Graeme MacQueen was my close friend for the last ten years of his life, I found it very hard to watch this film since his death on April 25th is still raw and painful. For more than three years he suffered greatly and yet found the strength to cooperate with his colleague Ted Walter in the making of this important film. Walter’s direction admirably portrays MacQueen’s nobility by having Graeme narrate his life’s work interspersed with documentary footage that illuminates the truth about many issues, most notably the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent anthrax attacks. The result is a very powerful and important lesson in personal courage and historical truth.
