2012: A Breakthrough Year for the 9/11 Truth Movement

Reinvestigate 9/11 -

2012 was the year that doubts over the official story of the 9/11 attacks finally became firmly established in the corporate media in the US. Sceptics in the Muslim world gained a new voice at governmental level with the call by President Morsi of Egypt for a new independent 9/11 investigation. In Italy Supreme Court President Francesco Imposimato said he would be petitioning the International Criminal Court to pursue an investigation into the possible involvement of rogue elements in Washington in the attacks.


9/11 sceptics cite two smoking guns, one forensic the other based on the paper trail. The belated 2008 admission from government experts that WTC 7 (the third building to collapse in the 9/11 attacks) fell not only symmetrically but at free fall speed strongly suggests the use of pre-planned demolition charges, they say.

In 2011 came the bombshell confirmation by Richard Clarke, White House anti-terror co-ordinator at the time of the attacks, that, based on his unrivalled vantage point at the top of the intelligence pyramid, the CIA must have made what Clarke calls a “decision” to allow the alleged 9/11 hijackers to operate freely in the US and hidden the decision from him.

Clarke’s assessment should have unleashed a tidal wave of horror worldwide, but it didn’t. Let’s say it again: the man best placed to judge is now clear that 9/11 took place as a result of a “decision” at the CIA. Having told the public for ten years that 9/11 was entirely explicable as the result of a conspiracy by skilled and cunning Islamic fanatics, few in the media had the time or the stomach to check these new fact, corroborated by FBI’s Al Qaeda expert Ali Soufan. This is the same media cartel that failed to challenge the deceitful weapons of mass destruction story used by Bush and Blair to justify the second post 9/11 war, the invasion of Iraq.

Still, Clarke’s bombshell seems to have started journalists and editors thinking and perhaps paying less attention to the shills that infest mainstream media offices using the “conspiracy theory” slur to block unwelcome lines of investigation.


In March 2012 Hollywood legend Ed Asner appeared on the CBS Sunday Morning programme questioning the official 9/11 story and persuading CBS to screen the “smoking gun” video of the collapse of WTC7, an extremely rare event in the corporate media. Viewers saw this massive building collapse symmetrically and for a period at free fall speed. This event, say Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth (AE911), could only occur with the aid of carefully positioned explosives. What else, they ask, could remove all support for the building, not just in one place but evenly across it?

Over the 9/11 anniversary last September the film Experts Speak Out, produced by AE911, was the most downloaded film on PBS, America’s publicly funded network. A week later leading US 9/11 sceptic Jesse Ventura was on CNN with Piers Morgan. While Morgan presented the official view, Ventura, maverick ex-Governor of Minnesota, put the alternative view: “every war starts with a false flag operation”. A straw poll of the CNN studio audience yielded strong support for Ventura.

Another initiative, the 9/11 Consensus panel has been looking at the common ground of the 9/11 Truth Movement and supplying scientific assessments to the mainstream media, disseminated by Reuters, The Wall Street Journal and as a result by many other corporate outlets.


When they are not cosying up to their “sources” in government, media people spend much of their time consuming other mainstream media, so the significance of these three breakthroughs is not only that the public is better informed, but the media are too.

Libertarian commentators on Fox News and Jesse Ventura on his TV show had already given sympathetic hearings to 9/11 sceptics, but both are easily smeared in Washington’s divide and rule political game. But with CBS and CNN at last validating 9/11 doubters it’s a lot harder for the shills.

The official 9/11 conspiracy theory has bewitched much of the “alternative” media too. When in 2006, the five year anniversary, the Washington Post and other mainstream outlets aired 9/11 doubts in an even handed way it should have been an open goal for anyone opposed to the wars and civil liberty outrages of the new era. This was the opportunity for the alternative media to lead the way and turn the spotlight on the key 9/11 questions. Even then it was already clear that the collapse of the Twin Towers had not been satisfactorily explained and multiple FBI officers had complained that their investigations into the alleged hijackers had been intentionally stymied by superiors.

Instead there was a wave of attacks on the 9/11 truth movement. With discreet support from superguru Noam Chomsky, who only in 2010 began to change his attitude, a string of “alternative” media people led by David Corn, of Mother Jones and The Nation, penned divisive and ill-informed hit pieces attacking 9/11 truthers.
