Steven Rosenbaum and Pamela Yoder are the filmmakers behind The Outsider, scheduled for release August 19th—assuming the 9/11 Museum’s team of lawyers hired to torpedo the film do not succeed. As the New York Daily News reports: “Top officials of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum want to cut 18 scenes they call ‘defamatory’ from an upcoming documentary about the museum’s inner workings — and the documentary’s makers vow not to cave in to their demands.”

The Outsider, unlike the 9/11 Museum, does not leave the 9/11 truth movement on the proverbial cutting room floor. But more important than the smattering of explicit scenes featuring 9/11 truth protestors is the film’s overarching thesis: The 9/11 Museum failed in its original mission, as understood by Michael Shulin, to promote an open conversation about 9/11 stressing “question marks rather than periods.” The main villain seems to be 9/11 Museum Director Alice Greenwald, former director of the Holocaust Museum, who apparently insisted on making the 9/11 Museum into a “shrine of the monstrous lie.” Philip Kennicot of the Washington Post describes the Museum as “obsessive about repeatedly putting visitors through the trauma of 9/11…it is articulating a new kind of religion, an American religion based on a sense of grievance and loss, a nation that would be reborn as a more militaristic, aggressive superpower.”

The story behind the film may be of interest to 9/11 researchers. Rosenbaum and Yoder amassed the world’s biggest collection of non-network-TV videos taken on 9/11 and donated them to the incipient 9/11 Museum through then-Creative Director Michael Shulin. (Shulin, for his part, had collected the world’s biggest set of 9/11 photographs for his storefront exhibit, which led to his being offered the Creative Director position.)

Rosenbaum, Yoder, and Shulin donated their 9/11 videos and photos to the Museum on the understanding that they would be part of an open-to-the-public research library. It didn’t quite turn out that way:

Steven Rosenbaum: “If you go down to the museum and say, ‘I’m a researcher and I’d like to come in and use this material, they will send you a contract. And that contract you will have to sign. And in that contract, it will say that anything you create has to be reviewed by them and can be modified by them and can’t be released to the public unless they approve it.”

Kevin Barrett: “It sounds like what the CIA does with agents who want to write books.”

Steven Rosenbaum: “Here’s what’s puzzling about it. There is no example of any other museum in the United States that we’ve been able to find that controls legitimate, bona fide access to their archives in that way. And that includes, by the way, the Holocaust Museum. And we checked on this. And the Holocaust Museum said to us quite clearly, ‘if you arrive and say we’re making a book about the Holocaust and I don’t believe it happened, I’m a denier, and I want to access your materials to prove my point,’ they will let you in. They won’t ask to review what you write. They won’t try and edit it. And that’s kind of at the basis what museum making is supposed to be about: investigating archives. I can’t explain to you why they (the 9/11 Museum) don’t allow that.”

Kevin Barrett: “Well, I could I offer a couple of guesses, but I’m sure you’ve already thought of them, such as the likelihood that there is some very damning material in those archives that would add to the kind of cumulative case made by the many, many dozens of scholars who have published peer reviewed articles supporting the thesis of the 9/11 truth movement that this was a false flag event.”

What does Steven Rosenbaum think about 9/11 truth issues in general, and Building 7 in particular? Listen and find out.

    Oh how kosher. I am sure Mossad film makers are going to get to the bottom of this one. They have absolutely no conflicts of interest whatsoever.

    However, it is very interesting that Jews might be starting to concede the holohoax surreptitiously. But this doesn’t make a pattern. They always like to do predictive programming, just in case.

    I got a third of the way though this and concluded the Israeli connection was not going to be mentioned. The same wheedling nasal tone was there as characteristic of Jewish commentators in America. Where did they get that accent from? The last holocaust denier to enter an American Holocaust museum non surreptitiously got shot. In Israel and Europe, they would be immediately arrested.

    Always good to have more info coming out about 9;11. For newbies here is a compact, compelling collection of key facts (backed up by solid links). This article focuses on indisputable facts. It begins by examining the 9/11 report itself, and key information which the report hides.
    “War Profiteers and 9/11”

    As long as people keep asking questions, the cover-up has to become bigger and more unweildy. Eventually it will be breached and collapse.

    Video Link

  6. Mr. Rosenbaum speaks well in this interview. He comes across as an unbiased, objective journalist. However he mentioned that he created the film “7 Days in September.” Out of curiosity, I watched that on YouTube. That film is anything but unbiased and objective. Three towers fell, and yet he completely forgot to even mention Building 7. No video. No discussion. No acknowledgment. It is not credible that video was not available. It is a glaring, politically driven omission. One might ask why? I will not waste time watching “The Outsider.”

    He doesn’t focus on the physics minutiae because it’s ultimately irrelevant and only serves to detract from the most important issue: who was responsible for orchestrating the attacks and for what reason. What difference does it make if there were explosives, missiles, airplanes, fake footage, or aliens? That’s inconsequential to the overall point.

    Sorry, I hadn’t watched Seven Days in September before the interview. If I had, I would have asked him why WTC-7 wasn’t mentioned. In any case, I should have asked him when he figured out there was a problem Building 7. Obviously he is aware of it now and not afraid to say so.

    If Farcebook is premiering the film it’s obviously not too subversive. Does the film contain more useful information than the story of a few New Yawk Jews wandering about preening themselves over their historico/media product? I kinda think that’s doubtful.

    LOL. Dawson! What a phony, limited hangout pos. Arrogant, condescending douchebag who showed up late and is an obvious gatekeeper. Ignore him. Many other actual truthtellers worth people’s time. See Anthony Lawson’s work (videos) which is far, far better.

  16. OnHigh says:

    I’ve been monitoring Mr. Barrett off and on for a few years now. I’d become increasingly convinced that he is a gatekeeper. I think this pretty much confirms it. At times he has all sorts of nonsense on here and at others he’s hosted some really insightful people.

    This is inexcusable. I pretty much agree with most of those here who saw right through this without bothering to listen to it all.

    Actually gatekeepers are the people who keep the truth movement penned up behind barb wire in its “free speech zone.” The opposite of a gatekeeper is someone who finds a way to get the message to those who haven’t heard it yet.

    Anyone who makes the truth movement sound obnoxious to non-truthers is being a gatekeeper, whether or not they realize it.

    I’ve seen the Gaudet first plane vid many times. There was no plane. The vid shows a shoddy retouch of a silver shadow, plane, just before the explosion. Laughable.
    No plane in Pentagon, no plane at Pennsylvania site. Only the second plane is problematic. One out of four is bad.

  22. Proximaking says: • Website

    Any talk of 911 that doesn’t include Judy Wood’s investigative work is missing a huge part of the picture. Semtex doesn’t turn steel to dust and neither does thermite or fires or planes hitting buildings.

    And all 7 WTC prefixed buildings were destroyed that day not just WTC 1, 2 and 7. Someone has a grudge against the new world order, presumably the head of the existing world order that has always been, is, and always shall be.

  23. Skeptikal says:

    “What difference does it make if there were explosives, ”

    I watched most of Ryan Dawson’s film (the one linked above).
    It was odd because a few whole sections seemed to be repeated. And then there were other visual oddities and the production values are pretty low and it is hard to see and follow.

    However, he has done a great job of dot connecting.

    The reason I quote the sentence above is that a lot of Dawson’s dot connecting does concern the explosives presumably pre-placed in the basements of the towers. He speculates and provides strong circumstantial evidence for a sophisticated Mossad connection behind the presumably Mossad personnel apprehended in two vans outside Manhattan but focusing on the strategic placement of a van with provocative artwork on the side (showing planes flying into a tower) very near to the explosion sites—to act as a decoy and distraction, he surmises.

    I recommend watching the Dawson vimeo film. It starts way back to solidify the central thesis that whose who don’t think there are conspiracies and also major, and effective, operations to cover them up are living in a childish fantasyland, not in the real world. I think he dispenses with issues such as planes or no planes in order to keep his eye on the most ball, which is showing that there was a conspiracy and very likely the Israelis played a crucia part in it—not only the planning, done by neocon implants, but the execution.

    He also shows that it was a long-term sophisticated psy-op that started under Clinton. This is of particular interest to me because of my interest in the general question of what groups and types of entities have shown themselves capable of executing multigenerational strategic plans of national or global reach.

    Certainly the Jews, and the Zionists, constitute one of the only such entities/groups. Basically all such groups seem to have a tribal or clan consciousness on one level or another.

  24. The Holocaust and 911 were both “good for Israel”.

  25. To get the bigger picture watch ” Missing links”.

    “Discover the definitive truth about 9/11 and learn why even the most popular movies on the subject have failed to address the evidence exhaustively presented in this video.

    The facts will make it abundantly clear that the so-called 9/11 “Truth” movement has been infiltrated and is ultimately controlled by the same criminal group who masterminded the attacks.”

    full documentary.

    Some positive opinions for Dawson.
    I’ll have to watch videos again.

    Certainly do not want to create
    division over trivia or misunderstanding.


  27. I believe that every rational person knows deep down that something is wrong with the “guys with boxcutters did it explanation to 9/11.” And. then, on top of it the wrong guys!! It was not the people we were fighting.. How stupid do they think Americans are. Don’t answer that. Even if it were true, all it show s is the pathetic or corrupt leadership that the nation has. Bush jr. Cheney and rest should be spending long prison sentences.

  31. If Dawson claims he believes that one, I’d say bye to Dawson as an information source. It would be the first instance in history in which a heavily reinforced steel framed building collapsed into its foot print at the rate of free fall due to the inferno of burning drapes and wallpaper.

    Gosh, what about the BBC television reporter who announced to the world bldg 7 had just collapsed…30 minutes before the event?

    In my opinion, Dawson’s claim (if that’s what he thinks) is both revealing and damning.

  32. @Kevin Barrett

    Gatekeepers are people who keep the conversation from going in the directions honest and intelligent people would be looking. They don’t let people see passed the gate to look around at alternative perspectives or additional facts, or whatever it is they don’t want people to see, but are afraid to censor.

    What you are talking about is the internet ghettos of the neo-Bolsheviks.

    In this case what is verboten is Israel’s direct involvement.

    • Replies: @Kevin Barrett
  33. @independent_thinker

    The most insidious gatekeeper is the guy injecting Cass Sunstein’s “beneficial cognitive diversity” into the conversation—the one who keeps saying Earth is flat, aliens did 9/11, Jews are all evil, I am the only one with the real truth and everybody else is an agent, etc. etc. That effectively bars to the conversational gate against the people who matter the most: the not-yet-converted. They won’t enter to join the conversation because they get the impression that the participants are lunatics.

  34. Iris says:

    If true, office fires also felled Dawson.

    That settles it, then.
    The way WTC7 fell was by “global failure”, the civil engineering term for “controlled demolition”.

    This was irrevocably proven by a University of Alaska structural study which methodology and calculations were, unlike NIST’s gobbledygook, made public and transparently offered to peers’ criticism. Nobody found any flaw in its conclusion because there isn’t any.

    Still promoting the “office fire” clownery in 2021 is like affirming that gravity doesn’t exist, or that modern skyscrapers in Dubai and China are not for real: it is not just the mark of liars, but that of the pathetically uneducated. Even the most stupid propaganda needs to rest on shreds of vraisemblance: has the American intellect really sunk so low?

    Trouble Paying For & Loading The Documentary From Facebook (anybody else have this problem?) – today, aug 21, was the last day to obtain a paid-for view on facebook. I never use facebook, but I have a login name and password from years ago. So – I opened facebook to that long-ago name and password a few minutes ago. No problem. I linked to the film documentary from the film’s site ( I then entered credit card info and clicked to move to the designated location to watch the documentary. Bang! – I got an on-screen notice from facebook that my account was closed for inappropriate use, or words to that effect. Considering that I haven’t used that facebook account at all for at least six or seven or eight years, I assume that facebook didn’t approve of my using the accout to watch a 9/11 movie. Did anybody else attempting to access the film on facebook have this problem?

    Those are good guesses, Dr Barrett.
    Controlling the “rogue” photographs and videos of many 9/11 “anomalies”, taken by unsuspecting members of the public, was essential to covering up the Israeli false flag.

    1- The pieces of rubble metal that sustained melting temperatures for over 3 months were a giant smoking gun for underground nuclear-level fallout.

    2- The collapse of WTC7 in quasi-free fall was a definitive evidence of controlled demolition, now irrevocably demonstrated.

    3- And most controversial but most important: the photos and films of “planes” allegedly penetrating the Twin Towers could never sustain expert scrutiny in a course of justice. They would be discarded in minutes as they are blatantly and ridiculously faked.

    Neither planes, nor Saudi terrorists were involved in the attacks on the WTC.
    The WTC came down using the well-known and decades-old technique of underground nuclear detonation, planned, coordinated and carried out by Israel.

    In occupied America, it is no surprise that a former Holocaust museum director was appointed 9/11 museum director. The PTB’s choreographing both parts are the same.
