Cindy Sheehan: “I am a 9/11 truther”

Source: 9/11 Truth News

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has given support to the cause of 9/11 truth many times over the past few years but on the eve of the ninth anniversary, she made her position clearer than ever before. To an enthusiastic packed house at All Souls Church in New York City, Sheehan declared "I am a 9/11 truther. I do think it was an inside job."

Sheehan lost her son Casey in the Iraq invasion and has since dedicated her life to ending war and injustice. She is most widely known for setting up camp on the edge of George W. Bush's Texas property in 2005, demanding that the president answer one single question from a mother whose son died in the war.

Since that time, Sheehan has continued her activism. She is a fierce critic of the Obama administration's continued occupations and drone attacks, and recently founded Peace of the Action to further her anti-war activities.

On Friday, in the crowded All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, Sheehan spoke of many injustices related to the war, both at home and abroad. She spoke of being tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets while protesting. She spoke of the recently reported "Kill Squad" in Afghanistan, where members of the US military collected the fingers of slaughtered civilians for souvenirs. "That's not something new," Sheehan said.

She urged the crowd to consider the lives of the Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani people and said, "We're the occupiers - it's up to us to do something about it".

When the topic turned to 9/11, Sheehan stated "I am a 9/11 truther." She paused while the appreciative crowd cheered loudly and then said, "I do think it was an inside job. We just don't know - I don't know - how far inside it went. But, you know, I'm sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it."

While not making it her main issue, Sheehan has spoken freely regarding her opinions on 9/11 truth over the past few years. She has offered her support to the 9/11 truth movement in various interviews and participated in conferences. Sheehan also serves as an adviser to the recently launched 9/11 Truth News (

Citing the 30,000 mostly young people who die each day from starvation, Sheehan left the crowd with this thought: "Every day, ten 9/11s occur around the world. It's time to start acting locally, but thinking globally."

It's good that Cindy finally came around to being a truther. When I first met her at a book signing at Ethical Culture, she didn't want anyone in the audience to interrupt the proceedings about peace and anti-war with questions about 9/11. Great to have her with us.

I don't think "interrupting the proceedings" helped very much.

She talks a bit about rude truthers here:


Now if only more well known figures on the left will follow her lead...

BTW YT you should consider submitting your article to some other alternative news websites...

Don't be surprised it they don't

'Now if only more well known figures on the left will follow her lead...'

If they did, it would break with precedent. As I recall, she first expressed support for an independent 9/11 investigation back in 2007. This statement was met with a deafening silence by the very antiwar organizations whose cause she had done so much to revive--and who, to this day, won't even go so far as coming out in support of such an investigation.


It's about time she came around. No 9/11, no war in Iraq or Afganistand. They go hand in hand. We MUST UNITE with all truth groups if we are to win this thing. We are all fighting the same people. A hand full of bankers that control the show. I think they call themselves the Illuminate. Well without our co-operation they loose.
