Ian Henshall of Reinvestigate911.org is a leading figure in the UK 9/11 truth movement and the author or co-author of some of the best 9/11 truth books including 9/11: The New Evidence. He recently wrote to ex-CIA asset and 9/11 whistleblower Susan Lindauer and me to comment on our debate about whether there were any hijackings on 9/11.
Hi Kevin, Susan,
I've just been reading the debate between you and Susan L on the hijackers or not. My conjecture would be hijackers who could not fly because they were planning on a hostage taking; plus remote control... IMO there is some doubt as to whether there has been a good faith mixup between two Mohammed Atta's or even whether (Daniel Hopsicker's) informant Amanda Keller is reliable. (See interview with Atta's girlfriend Amanda Keller.)
(Leading Mideast journalist) Robert Fisk told me that Ziad Jarrah's parents believe he is still alive.
The BBC report ("9/11 Hijack Suspects Alive and Well") has been qualified and when I emailed the reporter he backed off the report saying he had taken it from the Saudi news service and not checked it. The Saudis were at first opposed to the official story hence the stories about the living alleged hijackers but it seems they cut some sort of a deal with the US a few months later.
The problem with the claim that some are still alive is that no-one has produced a picture to refute the official line, which is that others may have the same name but they are different people.
It is my earnest opinion that even one picture like this would go round the world and quite likely break into the mainstream media in the NATO countries. Can't you use Saudi contacts to dig up the old press reports there?
I'm told by someone with Saudi contacts that it is widely known there that several are still alive. I asked her to try to find a picture of one of the alleged hijackers after 9/11, preferably looking at his FBI mugshot, but she has not got back to me.
Susan: if you are ever in the UK, Reinvestigate 911 could possibly organise a public meeting and possibly a private one with legislators invited, but we don't have much of a budget.
