George Galloway Endorses Call for New 9/11 Inquiry

George Galloway endorsed the objectives of Reinvestigate 911 on his mass audience show on Talksport Radio this morning. George grilled Ian Henshall from Reinvestigate 9/11 for some 15 minutes on the need for a new 9/11 inquiry. Galloway remained doubtful of any inside job conspiracy but agreed there were serious unanswered questions which merited a new inquiry. Henshall summarised the main areas of concern as the astonishingly rapid collapse of the three World Trade Centre buildings and the discovery of apparently engineered nanoparticles in the dust; the anti-hijack exercise that the Pentagon now admits it was conducting at the same time as the attacks; and the role of the CIA's top secret Osama bin Laden unit which did nothing to help and seems to have blocked FBI offices from their own investigations prior to 9/11.

Henshall explained that Reinvestigate911 is open to anyone who wants a new investigation. He reminded listeners that, according to the original version of the official 9/11 story, the attacks succeeded as a result of the stupendous powers and resources of Al Qaeda. This was the justification for the invasion of Afghanistan. But it is now generally admitted that Al Qaeda must have been extremely lucky in many ways, benefiting from the amazing incompetence of the intelligence agencies. George Galloway supported this, observing that all the subsequent attacks were low level and against the softest targets.

Henshall commented afterwards: "In recent weeks George Galloway and Noam Chomsky have both endorsed the principle that it is legitimate to ask questions about 9/11. They have recognised that, whether you think 9/11 was an inside job or not, the official 9/11 story was a con which launched the 9/11 wars. We are delighted at this development. It is no longer possible to say that the traditional left is opposed to the 9/11 truth movement."

Reinvestigate 911 are currently campaigning for the Iraq Inquiry to ask questions about 9/11. They ask supporters to contact their MPs and make submissions directly to the Inquiry. To see how to do this easily please go to
