In the days that followed the 9/11 attacks, information regarding mysterious “put-options” on American and United Airlines, in the week or so prior to the attacks, began to reach the alternative media.
Already doubtful of the veracity of the Bush administration’s official narrative, I decided to email economist and Left Business Observer publisher Doug Henwood and ask if he had any knowledge of the 9/11 related insider trading that journalists, such as Mike Ruppert, were starting to bring to light. Having received a prompt reply to a previous email I had sent Mr. Henwood regarding one of his speaking engagements, I believed it reasonably likely that a question relating directly to the economics of 9/11 would elicit some kind of response from him. No response was forthcoming, and on Thursday, April 29, 2010 almost a decade later, the reason became clear.
