The September, 11 terrorist attacks in the US were a “deliberate hoax” and “massive deception” by neoconservatives in the Pentagon, in cooperation with US and Israeli intelligence agencies to take the US into war on behalf of Israel, the co-founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth says.
James Henry Fetzer, who’s also an editor at Veterans Today and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin, said the 9/11 Commission’s official report of the events leading up to the 9/11 attacks is a “fraud” and was “fabricated on a monstrous lie.”
“The United States went to war in the Middle East on behalf of Israel because of an event that was contrived and staged and brought to us by the CIA, the neocons in the Department of Defense and the Mossad,” Fetzer told Press TV on Thursday.
“It’s a tragedy [and] the world must understand what actually happened because it was subjected to a massive deceit and deception on 9/11,” he added.
The American scholar called a recent article disputing the official story of the terrorist attack by scholars and researchers as “fascinating in several respects.”
The article provides new evidence that negates the official claim that none of the black boxes belonging to the planes hitting the World Trade Center towers were ever found, according to Consensus 9/11.
The 24-member 9/11 Consensus Panel says that firemen working at Ground Zero in October 2001 had found three of the four black boxes. It is not known why US officials always denied finding the almost indestructible boxes.
US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by Al-Qaeda terrorists but many analysts say it was a false-flag operation and that Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was just a bogeyman for the US military-industrial complex.
They believe rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to boost the US economy and advance the Zionist agenda.
