Polls tell us that 1/3 of Americans do not believe the official story the 9/11 Commission Report set out regarding the attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. (Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll) This seems to be for good reason considering the amount of unanswered questions surrounding the event. Since 9/11, there have been worldwide crackdowns on security including the introduction of many bills and acts that put the rights and freedoms of citizens at risk in various countries.
A 12-year and incredibly costly war, both financially and in terms human lives, has come as a result of the 9/11 attacks which began the idea of pre-emptive wars. The US now has better control over oil, other commodities in the areas invaded and a tighter security squeeze on their citizens. While argued, it seems more than obvious that the idea of terrorism is now a piece politicians use to pass what would otherwise be un-passable acts and bills. It is also a term thrown around heavily by mass media that immediately draws attention, builds fear and gains the support of people for almost anything. But is it possible that Islamic terrorism is not a serious threat regardless of what governments and mass media have said?
Many seem to think so and it isn’t just the “crazy conspiracy theorists” as the media and government like to call them.
Daniele Ganser is one of those people who seriously question the official story of 9/11. Daniele is a Swiss historian and professor of modern history at the University of Basel. In 2001 he received his PhD from the University of Basel and is currently the president of the Swiss branch of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas. He has been rigorously studying the topic of 9/11 and working hard to determine what truly happened that morning, as well as who caused it to happen. His conclusions do not align with the official 9/11 Commission Report nor do they align with the theory of Islamic terrorists committing the act.
Below is a video lecture he performed in 2012 where he describes his fascinating findings about 9/11 and reveals his stance on the matter. This is a powerful lecture and I highly recommend checking it out if you are seriously looking to learn more about the topic of 9/11.
