“The execution and spinning of 9/11 were instrumental in creating the repertoire of political trickery presently being adapted in the manufacturing and exploiting of the COVID-19 hysteria.”
– Anthony Hall, August 23, 2020 
LISTEN TO THE SHOW
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 marked a staggering moment of confusion and chaos for Americans, and much of the world.
Four hijacked airlines, three demolished towers and nearly 3000 people dead in an event that committed the US and the world on course for a War on Terrorism, intended to prevent the event from ever happening again.
Americans were now set for a long term endeavour to snuff out each last one of the ‘fiends.’ As a consequence military men and women were active and between their lives and the hundreds of thousands of others unfortunate enough to reside in the places the White House considered Terror Targets, the numbers of people victimized by the attacks would soon explode.
Now, on the 19th anniversary of 9/11, some people might be doubting whether the narrative still connects with a dreary and desolate planet. Resources have shifted away from countries supporting terrorism to a new cold war with Russia and China. In the last seven years or so, Putin alone was found responsible (or so the story goes) of illegal violence in Ukraine, stirring up trouble in Syria, poisoning an ex-Russian spy and his daughter (they recovered), and now taking on his political rival, opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Heck, he is even responsible for putting Trump in the White House!
With Osama bin Laden now clearly no longer a threat and these new and different menaces forcing their way into the public mindset, does the 9/11 narrative and the call to ‘chase them out of their caves’ still possess the same traction now as it did when the smoke was still settling from the blasts in New York City?
On this week’s Global Research News Hour broadcast, we sit down with three guests who believe that the War On Terrorism still matters, though not in the obvious way we are used to thinking.
My first guest, Anthony Hall, believes that Wall Street and the Federal Reserve definitely used the attacks to launch wealth appropriation and kleptocratic activities serving the elites. He argues this harvest of cash is active today in 2020 with the arrival of the COVID 19 crisis.
Our next guest is Graeme MacQueen. Very active as a 9/11 skeptic, MacQueen builds on other aspects of the 9/11 narrative still active today. He also builds on an article he co-wrote which details that reporters on the day of September 11 discussed the reactions as that of ‘explosions’ and not of fire-induced collapses which is the official story.
Finally, Richard Gage, AIA, appears at the end of the show to detail the latest updates in the field of 9/11 politics, 9/11 legal Challenges and a special evening event starting on September 11.
Prof. Anthony James Hall is Editor In Chief of the American Herald Tribune. He is Professor emeritus of Globalization Studies and Liberal Education at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta.
Dr. Graeme MacQueen is the former Director of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster University in Canada. He was an organizer of the Toronto Hearings on 9/11, is a member of the Consensus 9/11 Panel, and is a former co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies.
Richard Gage AIA is a San Francisco Bay Area architect, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
