Approximately two months ago, French publicist Thierry Meyssan published his own version of the Sept.11 tragedy in his book The Frightening Fraud. In his words, the damage to the Pentagon building would have been bigger if it were a Boeing-757 catastrophe indeed. The damage in fact did not look like it was caused by an air crash. The publicist says that the crash was just a lie. The Pentagon accident was organized and caused by “a group of people who had authorized access to the Pentagon” and who aimed at the Navy Command Center. Finally, as Meyssan believes, the US authorities performed the operation to pursue their own interests.
Much was spoken and written about the book for a long period. The majority of critics said that Meyssan’s version was groundless and unsubstantiated. However, many people share the opinion expressed by the French publicist in his book.
Recently, Thierry Meyssan decided once again to remind people of himself and his sensational investigation. This time, he names those people who expected to profit by the Sept.11 tragedy and who organized the terrorist attacks. As could be expected, Thierry Meyssan’s version completely rules out Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. In his words, a group of "far-right" American politicians and military men defending the interests of the military industrial complex were the organizers of the tragic events.
Thierry Meyssan is sure that reports of the US administration on the causes of the tragedy contain flagrant contradictions. The publicist says that it is “a deliberate and far-reaching lie," which has already caused the loss of democracy in the USA.
If we follow Thierry Meyssan’s logic, we may say that the tragedy was committed by top authorities for the sake of America’s far-rightists. Once again, the publicist mentions no names, which is not a surprise, as Thierry Meyssan’s unsubstantiated version is a mere fiction. The situation would be different if real names, facts, and evidence were presented. However, in the current situation, it looks as if Thierry Meyssan is craving for glory, even if it is scandalous. The current moment indeed, as the world media are still focused on the fact that the White House was warned of the Sept.11 terrorist attacks. In addition, the scandal is not over yet, and nobody can predict how it will finish.
It is beyond any doubt that Meyssan’s accusations will be surely supported by some people. After all, it is very interesting to search for a black cat in a dark room, especially when there is no cat at all. Or may be there is one?
