Legal Scholars Question Government’s 9/11 Testimony

Experts In Weighing Evidence and Judging Credibility Aren’t Buying It …

Legal experts say that the government destroyed evidence, concocted fake evidence and  obstructed justice in connection with the 9/11 investigation.

Lawyers know that “conspiracies” are alleged every day by prosecutors and by plaintiffs in civil suits. They know that – just as with allegations of trespass, or defamation, or any other claim of wrongdoing – conspiracy allegations often fall apart under investigation, but that many – even big ones – turn out to be true.

The best lawyers value the Constitution and the rule of law, are able to examine evidence and to spot cover-ups or inconsistencies in the evidence and bias in witnesses or decision-makers, and are good at weighing conflicting evidence. It is therefore interesting to note that numerous high-level legal scholars question the government’s official story about 9/11:

  • Former Federal Prosecutor, Office of Special Investigations, U.S. Department of Justice under Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and currently a widely-sought media commentator on terrorism and intelligence services (John Loftus) questions the government’s version of 9/11
  • Former Inspector General, U.S. Department of Transportation; former Professor of Aviation, Dept. of Aerospace Engineering and Aviation and Professor of Public Policy, Ohio State University (Mary Schiavo) questions the government’s version of 9/11
  • Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois, Champaign; a leading practitioner and advocate of international law; responsible for drafting the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention; served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International (1988-1992), and represented Bosnia- Herzegovina at the World Court, with a Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both from Harvard University (Dr. Francis Boyle) questions the government’s version of 9/11
  • Former prosecutor in the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section of the U.S. Justice Department and a key member of Attorney General Bobby Kennedy’s anti-corruption task force; former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois (J. Terrence “Terry” Brunner) questions the government’s version of 9/11
  • Bessie Dutton Murray Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus and Director, Center for Human Rights, University of Iowa; Fellow, World Academy of Art and Science.
  • Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Troy University; associate General Counsel, National Association of Federal Agents; Retired Agent in Charge, Internal Affairs, U.S. Customs, responsible for the internal integrity and security for areas encompassing nine states and two foreign locations; former Federal Sky Marshall; 27-year U.S. Customs career (Mark Conrad) questions the government’s version of 9/11.
  • Director of Academic Programs, Institute for Policy and Economic Development, University of Texas, El Paso, specializing in executive branch secrecy policy, governmental abuse, and law and bureaucracy; former U.S. Army Signals Intelligence officer; author of several books on law and political theory (Dr. William G. Weaver) questions the government’s version of 9/11

Indeed, 50 lawyers – including Ferdinando Imposimato, Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy, the Former Senior Investigative Judge, Italy, who presided over several terrorism-related cases, including the kidnapping and ultimate assassination of President Aldo Moro, the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II, other political assassinations and kidnapping cases and several cases against the Mafia, a former Senator who served on the Anti-Mafia Commission in three administrations, and served as former legal consultant to the United Nations regarding institution of laws to control drug trafficking – have signed the petition at Lawyers for 9/11 Truth, demanding an end to the 9/11 cover-up, a new, full and unbiased investigation, and punishment of all guilty parties:

    If there is anything exceptional about Barack Obama, it is that the same people who latched onto him and made him President of the United States, are the same people who latched onto Mark Zuckerberg and made him CEO of a company they invented for him called, Google.

    Our world in the United States is not a meritocracy. That’s a laughable presumption. Everything in our world depends on who you know, what you are willing to do for them, and how low you will debase your moral self before their interests. The money is ordered printed in Washington D.C.

    No one earned the trillions of dollars that have recently been printed. But believe me, someone got the trillions of dollars. That someone was not you or me.

      You’re permitted to have opinions only if you have your facts right. Now you go straight to Wikipedia and read about Mark Zuckerberg!

      • Tonto

        Go to Wikipedia? OMG! You are absolutely incorrigibly brain-dead.

        Mark Zuckerberg and Barack Obama are both creations of the CIA, made with CIA money and promoted with CIA backing. “GMail users have no expectations of privacy.”

        That’s why you get a password, I guess.

        Wikipedia users have no real expectations of reading any truth either. Anyone dedicating their time to updating Wikipedia is both wasting their time, and willing to explain the frustration they have felt trying to get the truth to post and remained posted.

        “We don’t need no stinking truth!” -Wikipedia

        Haven’t you noticed? Neither Markl Zuckerberg nor Barack Obama question the official 9-11 story. -God forbid! And bite the hand that feeds them?

        “We don’t need no stinking truth!” -Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg

        The (more or less covert) U.S. war on Syria continues to be waged, entirely unabated by all the antiwar hoopla. And law professors and constitutional law doctorate goombas from coast to coast can continue perennially to call for a new 9-11investigation all they want. It just ain’t gonna happen. Why? Because everyone-who-is-anyone already knows all about what happened on 9-11. Our own government did the whole damned thing, with a little support/technical help from the Israeli Mossad.

        Christ sake, they found passports lying in the street to tell them who did it! And no one can tell us WHO found the passports. So, what’s the point of having another “investigation”? The people found to have done the most lying about 9-11, are obviously the perpetrators of 9-11. The main liars about 9-11 can be easily shown to have been our own government, our own government and the boughten main stream media too. Read WaPo every once in a while just for laughs.

  • The “hijackers” couldn’t fly the planes. Asymmetrical fires in steel frame skyscrapers cannot cause symmetrical controlled-demolition-style collapse. Kerosene (jet fuel) cannot melt steel. Building 7 wasn’t hit by a plane and fell free fall. Case closed. Nothing is true about the “official story”.

    AA Exposes Bush’s ‘Big Lie’: Flight 11 DID NOT FLY on 911!

    by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

    American Airlines is the source for information that AA Flights 11 (North Tower) and 77 (Pentagon) did not fly on 911. If neither flew on 911, the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie. If the Bush ‘theory’ is a lie, there
    remains only one explanation and that is: 911 was an inside job given a green-light by Bush himself.


    The ‘Conspiracy of Rich Men’ Who Pulled Off 911 and Other GOP Atrocities
    by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

    The FBI has stated that there is no hard evidence to connect Bin Laden with 911. The ‘official’ conspiracy theory of 911 is an absurd and ridiculous fabrication believed only by idiots. It is a bullshit cover story designed to shock, awe and confuse with its sheer audacity and vainglorious hubris. Why are we surprised? Every criminal lies about his crime. Every criminal thinks he will get away with it. Every criminal hides the truth. Every criminal has a cover story. 911 is Bush’s.

    So Israel signed the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1993 but did not ratify it…… hmmmmm. Instead of cooperating, the Zionist are going to act like three-year-old’s shoving their feet in the sand, whining about having to comply before it’s Arab neighbors. What don’t they get about….. “The whole point of signing the treaty is that if it is done on a multi-lateral basis”…? …..

    Expert who traveled with Syrian rebels: So-called ‘moderates’ are Muslim Brotherhood-style Islamists…..Huma and Hillaries buddies……
