Fujita Denies calling 9/11 a hoax

http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Asia/Story/STIStory_499856.html

TOKYO - A LAWMAKER and foreign policy expert of Japan's centre-left ruling party Tuesday denied telling The Washington Post that he suspects the September 11, 2001 attack on New York was a hoax.

In an editorial Monday, the US newspaper said Yukihisa Fujita, a lawmaker of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), had questioned that the attacks were the work of terrorists.

The newspaper, which recently interviewed the upper house lawmaker in Tokyo, said he 'seems to think that America's rendering of the events of Sept 11, 2001 is a gigantic hoax.' In the past, Fujita has called for an independent investigation into the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people and he has published a book entitled 'Parliamentary pursuit of suspicion over 9/11 terrorism.'

Fujita, the director general of the DPJ's international department, admitted referring to the attacks 'during informal talks' with the Post following an interview that had focused on Japan's immigration policies.

'But I clearly said I have never concluded that September 11 was a dark plot and never stated that (the collapse) of the Twin Towers was a controlled demolition,' Fujita said in a statement. 'We cannot help but conclude that it's a seditious report distorting facts.' Fujita separately told AFP: 'I'm puzzled and annoyed. I'm considering how I should take action to protest against the editorial.'

The newspaper also said: 'His views, rooted as they are in profound distrust of the United States, seem to reflect a strain of anti-American thought that runs through the DPJ and the government of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama.' Hatoyama's government took power in September, vowing more 'equal' ties with Washington after more than five decades of almost unbroken conservative rule. -- AFP

Sorry, comments are not enough! As mentioned before comments at the WAPOrware article are good, but somewhat more direct and personal heat is needed as well, what about phone calls to their office..

Get crafty, there is always a way to get over their secretaries etc., refer "Fujita's fantasies" to hard core evidence at http://www.ae911truth.org/ or Griffin's books or still better yet "Jersey Girls" Steering Committee report on the Congressional 9/11 Commission aka the famous 70% unanswered questions for the victim families:

Hmmm...

I was disappointed in Fujita's remarks frankly, but not discouraged. Especially if he pursues an international investigation of the facts of 9/11. Perhaps this is what he meant when he said that he had not reached "conclusions" -- without withdrawing his request for an investigation of 9/11 (I understand).

We're seeing this approach from Congressman Chaffetz and Medina (who ran for Governor in Texas) also -- not accusing the "US government", but still seeking an investigation of the facts...

On the Gary Null show earlier today, I noted (to briefly summarize):

1. the free-fall acceleration of WTC 7 for over 100 feet and NIST's concession that this indeed occurred: what this means to a physicist (nothing in the way impeding acceleration at g =32.2 ft/sec**2)
2. the near-free-fall acceleration of the Towers, the lack of an intact block to drive the lower building down, the flowing metal from the South Tower and molten metal in the rubble;
3. NIST's discussion of the orange-flowing material, inability to explain, and their refusal to look for explosive residues and to release their computer models for independent checking.
4. extended discussion on the Harrit et al. paper on nanothermite and its implications. He asked if Al Qaeda could have put nanothermite into the buildings, I explained why this could not be the case (high sophistication of manufacture, access needed to cores of buildings, etc.)
5. the iron-rich spheres observed in the dust and the very high temperatures needed to melt iron.

6. the Washington Post ad hominem attack on Y. Fujita in an 8 March 2010 editorial (yesterday). I noted that WTC7 was mentioned, and that the pattern of smearing without serious discussion of the facts was in evidence in the editorial. I hoped the WashPost mocking attack would backfire, that more would be made aware of 9/11, and that Fujita's request for an (international) investigation would be pursued. Fujita had every right to request an investigation considering that 24 Japanese were murdered in the WTC destruction on 9/11/2001.

Prof. Niels Harrit and Ian Henshaw were also on the show today and were very well-spoken and informative. Expect Prof. David Ray Griffin to be on the show on Thursday.
Null said that the number listening in via internet today was the highest ever for his radio program.

Seems to be online here:

Dear prof. Jones, I gather you meant this particular show, right?

Thanks for your continuous contribution

I agree with Professor Jones. I was also disappointed.

As with Ms. Medina in Texas, he apparently has succumbed to political pressure. The real perpetrators have a great deal of power and will stop at nothing to keep the truth from being realized.

It may be that he only disagrees with the characterizations and the inflammatory, demeaning language used by the anonymous WaPo editor. i think he should clarify his position and lay out the concerns that he actually has and how they contrast with the WaPo characterizations. From this article it appears that he has gotten back in line with the official story, which I trust that he has not done.

The dam is breaking and it will be someone of stature, like Fujita, who stands strong and holds to their convictions under pressure which will bring it down.

We need that kind of a hero now. I think it will happen. I am not discouraged.

The truth has momentum.

Letter to the Chairman of WaPo

Mr. Graham,

The momentum is in favor of the truth.

Your paper could emerge from all other mainstream media and champion the truth, or it can continue to participate in the coverup.

Whichever major media outlet decides first to stop playing Operation Mockingbird will emerge as the one with integrity. As you may know, there are many who are beginning to see through this concerted effort. The red rover game will be exposed and the truth will be known. Your paper has an opportunity to rise as the only credible outlet in the MSM. The others will follow, but you being the first, will be credited with breaking the embargo. Actually the Washington Times has recently written a rational article about Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth reaching 1000 qualified members. Your paper is more mainstream and could still claim to be the first of the MSM to stop the charade.

The 911 Truth movement is large and growing. We are committed to exposing the lies and finding the real perpetrators.

When the evidence is viewed, the official lie falls apart.

You can be on the right or wrong side of history.

I hope you will consider being truthful.

Best regards,

Rob Wrinkle

I'm not disappointed....

He is a politician and the way he phrases things effects his countries national security, so ergo he must be very, very careful!

Kind regards John

Fujita has gone where others fear to go

Its important to remember that Fujita has done what very few public figures let alone sitting elected officials have done:

- In January, 2008 he made a presentation (with English sub-titles) by Japanese Councilor Yukihisa Fujita of the Democratic Party of Japan before a session of the Japanese Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee which was broadcast live on Japanese NHK television. During the 30-minute presentation, a staffer held up several large photos and diagrams including photos of the damaged Pentagon with a 757 airplane superimposed to illustrate conflicts with the official story. Fujita also asked the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister about, and requests investigation by Japanese authorities into Japanese citizens killed in New York on September 11, 2001, instead of just taking US authorities' word. During his presentation Fujita’s colleagues were serious and respectful and not a single point was raised to challenge any of the claims made by him.

- On several other occasions, Fujita has called for a new investigation into the attacks of September 11, 2001 on the floor of the Japanese parliament.

- He has made visits to the European Parliament and to Australia specifically to promote awareness of 9/11 truth.

I agree that Fujita is a brave and good man.

He is an asset to the 911Truth movement. It just appears in the above article that he crawfished a bit. The subsequent statement is more encouraging, especially with Aus911Truth's correction of the translation.
