Reinvestigate 9/11 update
Posted by seumasach on February 17, 2011
Iraq Inquiry ties itself in more knots. RI911 has been writing to MPs and Peers seeking support for our call on London’s Iraq Inquiry to start asking questions about 9/11. Tony Blair told them that the attacks changed the “calculus of risk” and hence were critical in the decision to invade Iraq. The Inquiry nonetheless wrote to tell us that 9/11 is outside its terms of reference. We suspect promises were made to the US as indicated by Wikileaks documents. A supporter is opening judicial review proceedings against the Iraq Inquiry. Our letters have elicited replies from several curious Parliamentarians including an eminent ex-Foreign Secretary.
Update today 16 February: in a new letter the Iraq Inquiry’s legal advisor denies they were influenced by any promises made to the US and, in a second change of position tells us that the Inquiry has discretion in interpreting its terms of reference. They also say they discussed our position at length. We remain optimistic that our planned legal proceedings will force them to make a rational response.
George Galloway endorses RI911. George Galloway has blown hot and cold on the 9/11 truth movement for some time now, but as Vice President of Stop the War he endorsed this campaign on Talksport radio in November. Interviewing RI911 co-ordinator Ian Henshall he agreed that the official anti-hijack exercise running at the time of the 9/11 attacks was an extraordinary co-incidence and remarked that “Al Qaeda” had failed to pull off anything comparable to 9/11 before or since. Galloway remains hostile to the sort of activist who asks him to agree with alternative 9/11 theories
John Pilger: Bush regime “let it happen” is the most plausible explanation of 9/11. Legendary journalist John Pilger came close to endorsing the 9/11 inside job thesis at a meeting in London. “We know the senior FBI people who gave warnings right throughout 2001. We know about the extraordinary inactivity by the NORAD aircraft on the day of September 11th. We know that Cheney was in charge of the White House on that day. I think the most plausible is the “let it happen”, now at what stage it was let happen, I don’t know, I don’t know”. Pilger has always been a brave voice for truth and his honest admission that he does not know for sure what happened on 9/11 (who does?), is in shameful contrast to the gatekeeper leftists like George Monbiot and Charlie Booker who have attacked the 9/11 truth movement.

Other ‘war on terror’ news
The shocking news that 7/7 terrorist planner Mohammed Junaid Babar was an FBI informant, and has been quietly released from gaol after serving only four years has done little to disturb the complacency of the media. But at least The Guardian, ten years after 9/11, has finally started to ask the right questions:
“An American jihadist who set up the terrorist training camp where the leader of the 2005 London suicide bombers learned how to manufacture explosives, has been quietly released after serving only four and a half years of a possible 70-year sentence, a Guardian investigation has learned. The unreported sentencing of Mohammed Junaid Babar to “time served” because of what a New York judge described as “exceptional co-operation” that began even before his arrest has raised questions over whether Babar was a US informer at the time he was helping to train the ringleader of the 7 July tube and bus bombings.”
A pattern seems to be emerging of fake terror disguised as the real thing. Remember the 2009 Christmas bomber? Kurt Haskell, an attorney from Detroit who was on the plane witnessed the ‘bomber’ being escorted through security onto the plane even though his papers were not in order. Haskell has devoted sections of his blog to the issue. Other passengers commented that the apparent bomber was filmed before (sic) and after the incident by some passengers a few seats in front. State Department officials told Congress that they had been asked by a member of “the intelligence community” NOT to revoke the man’s US visa. Many 9/11 sceptics believe that fake terror incidents are planned as legitimate security exercises and in some cases made ‘real’ by a small team of black ops personnel, most of whose work has already, quite legitimately, been done for them.
Other terror scares are faked with agents provocateurs. In a rare article the Washington Post has detailed an FBI provocateur who tried to talk the members of a Californian mosque into becoming terrorists. “Tension is growing between the Muslim community and the FBI after an informant, Craig Monteilh, infiltrated a mosque, only a month after a local FBI leader visited the mosque and said the agency would do no such thing. Now, Monteilh is suing the FBI and revealing details of his operation.” Like the recently exposed British police, these Orwellian agents are full time and spend months if not years infiltrating. They press for terrorist solutions, agitating and recording their targets’ responses. If they only once flirt with the idea of violence this can be presented later to a jury as clinching evidence of terrorism. Monteilh received USD 177,000 tax free for 18 months work. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/04/AR2010120403710.html
Bombay Attack planner was US asset. It has emerged that John Headley the suspected planner of the Bombay attack is a long standing agent of the US. The Washington Post has detailed the facts (with the usual spin that it was all due to incompetence): John Headley was a long standing US agent; US authorities had multiple reports from those close to him that he was organising terrorist attacks but they did nothing in response; the US has managed to get him extradited despite claims from the Indian government that he should be questioned there; and Headly is co-operating with the US. Sceptics will be asking: when did the co-operation start and what would Headly have said to the Indian investigators if he had not been snatched by the US. The Bombay attack saw the murder of a senior Indian policeman who was accusing a pro-Israel network in the Indian federal police agencies of faking bomb attacks to make the culprits look like Muslims. Just another co-incidence?
Fake bomb made in the US caused Germany terror alert 19 Nov 2010. When a suspicious package was identified at Windhoek airport in Namibia, the flight was halted, the Munich-bound passengers delayed and news sped round the world that an x-ray scanner with batteries attached by wires to a detonator and a ticking clock had been found. But then a German government minister revealed the bizarre truth: the bomb was fake, manufactured in the US to ‘test airport security’. It was not yet clear who had planted the test suitcase, the German interior minister, Thomas de Mazière, said, but the one fact they had established was that the device had been manufactured by a US company that specialises in alarm systems. The usual ‘security sources’ told the Guardian this had no connection with the rumours that Germany was to suffer a terrorist attack, but funnily enough the threatened attack never happened.
9/11 Families: More Coverups on 9/11
9/11 victim families who were at one time the heroes of the Washington media are now ignored when they challenge the 9/11 coverup and demand answers. They are currently demanding the release of censored testimony from FBI translator Behrooz Sarshar.
Sarshar told Congress and the 9/11 Commission that he translated a summer 2001 warning from a long term reliable FBI agent in Afghanistan that “Al Qaeda” was planning to use kamikaze pilots in an attack on the US. This contradicts Washington’s claims that 9/11 came out of the blue. Some 9/11 truth campaigners are wary of this and similar reports as they say it indirectly validates the official 9/11 story. Others say it is further evidence that an “Al Qaeda” plot was managed and protected by a small group of top officials.

Mainstream sceptics begin to find their voice
It may not be a landslide but the drip drip of 9/11 truth continues in the mainstream media: in the past few weeks Noel Glynn of RI911 has been onBBC Radio London (admittedly in the middle of the night, but London never sleeps) while Jim Corr told Ireland’s Late Late Show “it was obvious to me that the official story just could not be true.”
Following a highly successful TV ad campaign by New York 9/11 activists, Fox News commentator Andrew Napolitano has joined George Gallowayin stating that he cannot see any explanation of how the three buildings in New York could have collapsed in the way they did. Sadly, the response of “liberal” commentators in Washington has been to ignore Galloway and attack Fox News for espousing “conspiracy theories” – code for asking awkward questions.
In Colorado, public TV has shown the film Loose Change 3, up to now almost totally censored in the US MSM. The demand for a new investigation into 9/11 is now part of the official platform of the Colorado Democratic Party.
Simon Jenkins, one time Thatcherite and now an anti-war columnist on the Guardian, is sailing close to the 9/11 wind with attacks on the anti-terror bureaucracy, recognising that they have a massive vested interest in a thriving terrorism threat. Commenting on the recent case of a British policeman who was undercover for years as a provocateur in the green movement. “Only those who have tarried in the foggy corridors of the Home Office, the Ministry of Justice and the Metropolitan police can have any notion of the Orwellian extravagance of these places… If challenged, they incant their motto: We keep you safe.”
The toner bomb alert was too twisted to go into the details here. But as Daily Mail commentator Peter Mackay wrote “To an inexpert eye, the printer cartridge affair looks an attempt to cause panic rather than a plot to murder hundreds… The problem with ‘war on terror’ plots is that we’ve learned over the past ten years that the narrative offered by our leaders – that Al Qaeda is an evil force dedicated to ending our freedom and way of life – is simplistic, to put it mildly… the (9/11) culprits were said to be Al Qaeda… So why make such a fuss about an atrocity which didn’t happen? Is it because it helps our leaders establish that they’re in charge, as well as justify dictatorial criminal laws and pointless air transport regulations?”
Opinion poll bombshell in Germany
Germany’s leading TV production company in the science area has sponsored an opinion poll from the country’s leading poll organisation EMID and published it in its flagship magazine, Welt der Wunder. The spectacular result is that less than 10% of Germans believe that we have been told the whole truth about 9/11. This not of course the same as saying that 90% believe alternative scenarios but it does show just how out of touch the mainstream media and its commentators are

911 Researchers have long noted the bizarre way that Pentagon exercises seemed to be mimicking the actual 9/11 attacks, in particular the anti-hijack exercise on the morning of the hijackings. The 9/11 Commission went to some lengths to obfuscate this information, perhaps because in the words of one mainstream journalist it “fed into” conspiracy theories. Now it has emerged that a new continuity of government communications system was turned on for the first time on September 10. Yet another 9/11 coincidence, this feeds into the theory that 9/11 was some sort of an internal coup. Bizarre? Tell that to Dick Cheney. White House counter-terror supremo Richard Clarke recounts in his memoirs that he was stopped on his way to Cheney’s 9/11 bunker in the White House by machine-gun toting guards. They recognised him but would not let him into the bunker.
Anyone for a diversion? With great fanfare the US Congress has reluctantly coughed up compensation for the hundreds of 9/11 first responders who are dying from mostly lung and cancer ailments. They believed the false assurances of Bush officials that the air in New York was safe to breath. But just what is causing their illnesses? There was a cocktail of nasty pollutants but scientist Kevin Ryan has culled evidence from official reports and medical journals to suggest that deadly particles, identified by nano-technology expert Niels Harrit in multiple samples of dust from the Ground Zero, would explain several of the normally rare ailments reported by first responders. These engineered nanoparticles have the power to cut through steel, and seem to account for the unexplained spectacular collapse of the three New York buildings that day.http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2011/02/04/energetic-materials-as-a-potential-cause-of-the-911-first-responder-illnesses/all/1/
If officials were nasty or fanatic enough to make or allow 9/11 to happen they might also have made money from it by placing insider trades. Indeed the evidence for 9/11 inside trading was widely acknowledged – until it became clear that it was not ‘Al Qaeda’ but US officials who were the likely culprits. When a German company, Convar, charged with reclaiming data from WTC computers, appeared to confirm this, the company was bought by New York’s Kroll Associates who promptly forbade employees to make any further public statements. A new analysis of the information that has leaked out makes the case even stronger http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=22070
Help wanted. Little-Known 9/11 Truth Organization Strikes Gold. A Texas-based research group has forced the authorities to release a mountain of videos and other documents used in the Commerce Bureau’s NIST investigation, which claimed to explain the rapid and symmetrical collapse of three steel frame buildings in the 9/11 attacks. The data is online and researchers are asking 9/11 sceptics anywhere to trawl through it in the hope of finding further evidence of a controlled demolition. At least one key video seems to have been edited to remove a crucial sequence at the start of the WTC7 collapse, but new footage has emerged where firefighters confirm that explosions preceded the buildings’ collapse. Other firefighters have been bullied by the mainstream media and their employer into withdrawing similar statements .
