9/11: Time for a Second Look- Lecture by Prof. David Ray Griffin

Posted by seumasach on April 21, 2009

 18 APRIL 2009

Brussels (Belgium)

My lecture is called “9/11: Time for a Second Look.” In suggesting that it is time for people to take a second look at 9/11, I have in mind primarily people who decided long ago that the attacks of 9/11 happened essentially the way the Bush-Cheney administration and the official reports about 9/11 said they happened, and who therefore decided that the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, which disputes that account, is comprised of crazy conspiracy theorists with no capacity to evaluate evidence objectively. Having formed these views long ago, such people, including most journalists, have been impervious to any arguments presented by the Truth Movement. They simply roll their eyes and move on.

However, both the Truth Movement and the available evidence have changed dramatically in the past 3 years. Because of these changes, it is not rational to reject the claims of this movement out of hand, without taking a second look. If you are a person who has had such an attitude, you cannot, in the face of these changes, simply roll your eyes without exhibiting the very irrationality of which you accuse the people you dismiss as “conspiracy theorists.”

My lecture is also addressed, albeit indirectly, to fellow members of the Truth Movement. Some members have decided that, now that Bush and Cheney are out of office and the Obama administration has reversed some of their 9/11-based policies, getting the truth about 9/11 revealed is no longer so important. Other members of the movement, seeing that the Obama administration is still presupposing that al-Qaeda attacked America on 9/11, have concluded that there is no hope that this truth will ever be revealed, so we might as well give up. To such people, I suggest that getting the truth revealed is just as important as ever, because many 9/11-based policies, especially the war in Afghanistan, have not been reversed. I also suggest that, because of the changes in the political landscape combined with developments in the 9/11 Truth Movement, we now have, really for the first time, a realistic chance of getting a genuine investigation.

High-Level CIA Officer: It Is Time to Re-Open the 9/11 Investigation

Posted by seumasach on February 6, 2009


George Washington’s Blog

5th February, 2009

A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called “perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said “the evidence points at” 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job .

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and the 9/11 Legend

Posted by seumasach on December 10, 2008

With the trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed(if that actually is him) now taking place, this is timely moment to revisit  Chaim Kupferberg’s devasting, and often hilarious account of how KSM was woven into the 9/11 legend in the role of “mastermind”.

There’s something about Omar: Truth, Lies and the 9/11 Legend.

It was almost an afterthought.  On March 1, 2003, the War On Terror had finally served up the alleged paymaster of 9/11 – a shadowy Saudi by the name of Mustafa Ahmed al-Hisawi.  Yet his arrest just happened to coincide with the capture of a much bigger fish – the reported 9/11 mastermind himself, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed – thus relegating Mustafa Ahmed to the footnote section of the “official” 9/11 Legend.  But there was another, more explosive side to this tale. Only seventeen months before, a former London schoolboy by the name of Omar Saeed Sheikh was first exposed as the 9/11 paymaster, acting under the authority of a Pakistani general who was in Washington D.C. on September 11, meeting with the very two lawmakers who would subsequently preside over the “official” 9/11 congressional inquiry.  Omar Saeed, as reported back then by CNN, was acting under the alias of…Mustafa Ahmed.  So where is Omar now?  Sitting in a Pakistani prison, awaiting his execution for the kidnapping of Daniel Pearl – while another man fills the shoes of his pseudonym.  What follows is a reconstruction of one of the most extensive disinformation campaigns in history, and the chronicle of a legend that may now shine a devastating spotlight on some of the cliques behind 9/11 – and the FBI Director covering the paper trails.
