A fourth hijacked plane is alleged to have crashed in Pennsylvania, following a struggle between passengers and the hijackers. It seems strange to some people that anyone should question any of the essential elements of this story, which has been repeated many times over in print and in other News Media, and is now widely recognized as the beginning of the War on Terror. This war on terror is now a basis on which many significant elements of foreign policy, and even domestic laws, have been based. Even at the time of the attacks, a small group of people openly questioned the story that the media presented to the public. Few people took this skeptical group seriously, perhaps in part because of the shocking nature of the attacks and the significant loss of life that they caused. In the 5 years since the attacks, however, many issues have been re-examined by a number of people and serious questions have arisen, many of which were raised by 9/11 victims families. These questions were not addressed by the 9/11 (Kean) Commission. Despite this, the Commission Report is regarded by many people, including the British Government, to be the most accurate description and explanation of the events immediately before and on 9/11. The Kean Commission Report has some extremely significant omissions the main one being the lack of a discussion or analysis of the Collapse of World Trade Centre (WTC) Building 7. This building, supposedly damaged by small fires (which burned for about 10 hours) and, on one side, by debris ejected from WTC 1 and/or 2, collapsed symmetrically, to the ground in 6.6 seconds at about 5:20 pm on Sept 11th. It is often said that those who want to investigate the unexplained collapse of WTC 7 are conspiracy theorists and it seems that this very labelling has deterred a great many people from looking at the facts related not only to the collapse of WTC 7, but those related to the collapse of WTC buildings 1 and 2. Professor David Ray Griffin is one of a small number of people with significant academic credentials who has looked into these disturbing questions. An author of over 20 books on Religion and Theology, Professor Griffin stated in an LA Times article (28 Aug 2005), he believed the official account for about 18 months considering it to be a blowback theory the attacks were simply a result of US foreign policy. Then, when he had analysed a timeline of 9/11 events, which referenced mainstream sources, he became suspicious that the official story was false, in key respects, so he began to research further for himself. In 2004, he published the results of this research in The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11. In this book (which has a foreword by Michael Meacher, MP) he also posed some questions about the motive for the 9/11 attacks in the context of a document called Rebuilding Americas Defences. This document, which was published by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), states that PNAC is a project “to promote American global leadership” and it later refers to the threat of a surprise attack on America like a New Pearl Harbour, which could then afford an opportunity to transform Americas defences. Professor Griffin also points out that the official account of the 9/11 attacks is itself a conspiracy theory. Professor Griffin published his second book on 9/11 a few months later. In The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, Professor Griffin argues that “omissions and distortions” in the report amount to a cover-up by government officials and he concludes that the available evidence suggests that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11. This is also strongly indicated by the fact that the Official Account of the collapse of the WTC buildings is not consistent with the Laws of Physics. In his latest book, Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action (supported by the US Presbyterian Church), Griffin describes how the United States is the world’s chief embodiment of demonic power and asserts that events such as those on 9/11 are a part of a long history of ‘false-flag attacks’ – orchestrated by governments against their own people to garner popular support for military action.
