9/11 Perpetrators' Achilles' Heel

The truth about 9/11 has been visible for too long. Every day that the speed and symmetry of the collapses of those three buildings goes unexplained increases the danger of discovery for the people who carried it out. And, for these criminals, it is the execution of 9/11--that is, the part that nearly everyone on the planet can still see in their mind's eye--where the real danger exists.

There are actually two reasons why 9/11 itself is a danger to the perpetrators...

First, on 9/11 the planners made a very risky choice, they decided to totally destroy the World Trade Center (WTC) towers. Completely destroying the towers had real benefits over simply crashing aircraft into the buildings. A complete destruction gave a great deal more drama to the event and would be accompanied by enough additional deaths to bring the level of the attack to an act of war. Planes crashing into and burning a part of two of the towers, while dramatic, would have left most of the WTC still standing and more importantly, would have allowed lots of people to escape. A smaller disaster on 9/11 might not have had enough emotional weight to carry the aggressive political agenda the planners had in mind.

A LETTER TO THE 9/11 COMMUNITY FROM DAVID RAY GRIFFIN

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I am writing in support of the international campaign, headed up by Elias Davidsson (who long lived in Iceland but now lives in Hamburg, Germany), calling for a new trial for Mounir El Motassadeq, who has been convicted of assisting the 9/11 attacks.

I have known Elias Davidsson for several years and know him to be an extremely careful researcher into the 9/11 attacks and also to be a passionate advocate for justice.

When I was in Hamburg last fall, I went with Elias to see Mounir's lawyer. He seems to be a good man and a capable lawyer, who will represent Mounir well if he gets the opportunity.

I agreed to be on the committee for Mounir along with Elias and a few others, including Annie Machon and Barrie Zwicker.

Incidentally, Mounir did indeed know Mohamed Atta. But in response to the question of whether the Mohamed Atta he knew in Hamburg was the same as the Mohamed Atta whose picture is in The 9/11 Commission Report, he said that they looked very different.
