Perhaps his gate-keeping agenda is keeping the space beam and hologram aficionados from making a break for the fences,
First of all, Dr. Fetzer got a bum rap (as personally promoting "space beams") from the knee-jerk, shilly-ish plane-huggers, years ago, when he first became intrigued by the Judy Wood material, gave her lots of airtime, and even provided a live-conference spot, to expound on her "dustification" and "toasted cars" cutesy-ness, always followed by her coy refusal to flat-out state what her endgame theory really was. But when pressed on this matter by Fetzer, Wood eagerly pointed to the bizarre, seemingly-impossible-to-replicate-in-a-reputable-lab, levitations of the mysterious, Tesla-reminiscent "Hutchison Effect". Fetzer's curt dismissal of this "effect" as being scientifically unsubstantiated was then met with an ongoing, highly unprofessional (for a credentialed scholar) campaign of rage and villification from Wood, even though Fetzer continued to express appreciation for the still-unanswered-by-officialdom questions (albeit based on highly questionable media imagery) Wood had raised. So IMHO Fetzer was never actually a "promoter of space beams".
Of late he HAS, however, become something of a "promoter of holograms," at least to the extent that they could be a possible explanation for (what he finds as) "credible eyewitnesses seeing planes". Wild as this hypothesis sounds, Fetzer supports its plausibility by citing documented, government-funded research into just such mass-deceptive technology -- plus the existence of academic/scientific conferences and journals devoted to tactical, holographic-display science.
The intense and compelling research done here at CluesForum leading to the discrediting of such "eyewitness testimony" AND the media-disseminated, bogus imagery that such testimony supports has, I'm sad to say, been mostly rejected by Fetzer -- a position which (perhaps too conveniently) then "allows" him to maintain that since the "crashes" were aerodynamically impossible, advanced-tech holograms must have "cloaked" whatever unknown destruction-source inflicted the initial damage upon the towers (if such pre-demolition damage even took place.)
Although I'm virtually certain that Dr. Fetzer has wandered down the wrong path on this absoulutely crucial matter, I'm still not convinced that he's just a paid-disinfo agent -- as very likely was the case with such cyber-excrement piles of the past as Jeff Hill, Genghis, Broken Sticks, ad nauseum.
OTOH, I have found Fetzer's choice (and inexcusably credulous treatment) of certain, off-the-wall guests on his show, particularly in recent months, to raise troubling questions as to his consistency in the sincerity/integrity department. Is he, at least on occasion, succumbing to the temptation to devolve into an intellectually lazy, ethically reckless, Art Bell-style "entertainer of the airwaves"? Perhaps; I hope not.
I still admire Fetzer's prodigious talent for challenging consensus reality with solid, revisionist research and dispassionate, logical deduction. His pioneering work on the Iraq war-enabling Senator Wellstone murder is outstanding, as is Fetzer's exposure of the fakery-laden, Secret Service-absolving Zapruder film. But his bull-headed, out-of-hand rejection of the most important CluesForum findings regarding victim-and-video fraud (favoring instead, even if only by default, the extremely tenuous hologram hypothesis) now threatens to mortally wound his hard-earned status as a courageous and accurate truth-teller.
And the parade of ad hominem attacks herein upon his advanced age and girth certainly have not increased the likelihood of his embracing the Clues findings, either. He doesn't deserve such treatment.
Unless, of course, he really is a shill for the perps, after all.
