“To me, the most simple, unanswered question of 9/11 is, did the 19 hijackers act alone or were they assisted by someone in the United States?…My motivation is to try to answer that question….Did they act alone or did they have a support structure that made 9/11 possible?”
-Senator Bob Graham, April, 2015 (As quoted in the New York Times.) 
“While the Washington Post acknowledges the links between ISI Chief Mahmoud Ahmad and Osama Bin Laden, it failed to dwell on the more important question: What were Rep. Porter Goss and Senator Bob Graham and other members of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees doing, together with the alleged money-man behind 9/11, at breakfast on Capitol Hill on the morning of September 11?”
The Global Research News Hour continues its 15th anniversary retrospective on the 9/11 attacks by exploring two attempts at re-directing the conversation around some inconvenient facts.
In the first half hour, we explore the drama around the anthrax letter attacks which were conducted around the same time the Bush Administration was ramping up its fear campaign around the so-called “War on Terrorism” and refining its propaganda efforts around the PATRIOT ACT and the October military intervention in Afghanistan. Five people died in these attacks which suspiciously were directed exclusively at Democrats and media representatives.
Professor Graeme MacQueen of McMaster University is the founder of the McMaster’s Centre of Peace Studies in Canada and its War and Health programme, He was a member of the organizing committee of the Toronto Hearings held on the10th anniversary of 9/11 and is co-editor of The Journal of 9/11 Studies. He is also author of the 2014 book The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy. In the first half hour of the program, MacQueen expands on the significance of a now mostly forgotten episode in the war on terrorism, the connection with the likely architects of 9/11, and the need to shift the propaganda campaign away from Al Qaeda and Iraq toward a ‘lone wolf’ based within the United States Military industrial complex. The full interview with Professor MacQueen is visible below.

Following the Anthrax interview, we hear about the notorious 28 previously classified pages from the report of the congressional Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11. This documentation was officially declassified on July 15, 2016, just before the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The 28 pages ostensibly spell out connections between the 9/11 hijckers and officials, royal family members and intelligence operatives within Saudi Arabia.
Professor Michel Chossudovsky, founder of the Centre for Research on Globalization, editor of Global Research and award-winning author addresses the disclosure of these 28 pages. In particular, Chossudovsky touches specifically on Bob Graham, the former Democratic Senator from Florida and former co-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. As Professor Chossudovsky points out, Graham’s allegations of Saudi connections to 9/11 is a ‘red herring’ and explains his reasoning in this interview.
Finally, Toronto-based veteran broadcaster, and media critic Barrie Zwicker commemorates the 15th anniversary of 9/11 with his own personal reflections on the way he has seen media effectively conceal the truth around 9/11. Barrie Zwicker was one of the first people in the world to publicly question the U.S. government’s role in 9/11, is the author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11, and the host-producer of The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw.
