Bowman has been targeted with death threats, government harassment and three tax audits in two years as a consequence of his bold truth-telling activism, which all started when he blew the whistle on the fact that Reagan’s Star Wars program was an offensive act of military conquest in space and a means of waging aggressive pre-emptive warfare, disguised as a defensive program. Bowman notes that his dissent was in fact encouraged by Reagan’s own Joint Chiefs of Staff, who privately thought that the whole idea was “military lunacy”. The initial intention was to use the space shuttle as a platform from which to test the star wars technology against targets on earth, states Bowman, a prospect that alarmed the JCS who feared that this would confirm Soviet suspicions that the space shuttle was nothing more than a weapons platform disguised as a component of a peaceful space exploration program.
Bowman compares the notion that John F. Kennedy was killed by a lone assassin by a shot fired from behind when the footage clearly shows the fatal shot came from the front to the equally ludicrous explanations offered for the collapse of WTC Building 7 on 9/11, and points to how the likes of BBC and CNN reported that the building had collapsed over an hour before it actually fell. The difference between 1963 and now, points out Bowman, is the fact that after Kennedy was shot almost everyone had heard about the grassy knoll, whereas the vast majority of Americans have no idea about Building 7 because the mainstream media has completely failed to investigate the matter.
