911 Coverup Makes Front Page of Norwegian 'Le Monde'
Unfortunately, this is not an English language mainstream publication, but Le Monde Diplomatique, a well known and well respected paper in Norway published a three page cover story on July 1st 2006 that questions the official US government 911 story...
Here is a synopsis of the full story as published on the July edition of the Nowegian Le Monde Diplomatique homepage. (If you wish to read the synopsis on the Le Monde homepage you will need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.)
Was September 11th an inside job?
Av Kim Bredesen, Journalist for Le Monde diplomatique (Juli 2006)
9/11TRUTH: More and more people in the USA are convinced that the American authorities are concealing their involvement in the September 11th tragedy. Statements from witnesses, marked confidential for several years, now show that controlled demolition may have taken place. The US government had long anticipated such an incident – as the Republican document from 2000 Rebuilding America’s defenses indicates.
The 9/11Truth organisation believes that the USA probably orchestrated an incident of this type in order to justify the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the curtailing of civil liberties within the US through the introduction of The Patriot Act. It has now emerged that the America’s most senior military leader in 1962 devised a plan for a premeditated attack on Americans, which would have involved shooting down a passenger plane, so that the blame could be cast on Cuba. So why should this be excluded today? Many also believe that Pakistani intelligence cooperated with the CIA and Al-Qaida because the former transferred significant sums of money to the hijacker Mohammed Atta in the days leading up to the 11th of September. They even had Bin Laden under surveillance during the time of his treatment in a military hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan in September 2001.
An unofficial translation of the whole story has been posted here for everyone to get an idea of the extensive coverage the article gives.
Though it has been several weeks since the story ran, we can only hope that the the English version of Le Monde Diplomatique will carry the story...
