The Australian

A SENIOR union leader has publicly stated he believes the September 11 terrorist attacks were a conspiracy and the Twin Towers were imploded.

Kevin Bracken, Victorian branch secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia and president of the Victorian Trades Hall Council, is calling for a "proper investigation into the events of September 11''.

"I believe the official story is a conspiracy theory that doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny,'' he told ABC radio host Jon Faine this morning.

``There are so many unanswered questions and the official story doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny, that there were four planes hijacked for over an hour and 20 minutes yet no US planes were scrambled which is directly against standard US air force operating procedures"

Mr Bracken also said aviation fuel did not get hot enough to melt steel and "no high-rise steel-framed building, before or after September 11, has ever collapsed due to fire''.

UPDATE:

For the record on the 28th of March 2008 the Victorian Trades Hall Council passed this motion after lengthy debate supporting a thorough and independent inquiry of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. From the minutes of the meeting on ...the 28th of March 2008;

“That this meeting of VTHC Executive Council calls for a thorough, independent enquiry into the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11.

The events of that day have been used to start pre-emptive wars “that will not end in our lifetime”. They have been used to attack civil liberties and legal principles that have been the cornerstone of civilised communities.

There is an urgent need to reassess the way we view the world after September 11 and we call for proper investigation into the events around that day.”

While I agree that they have not officially supported any theory around the events of 9/11 they do agree a new investigation is warranted!

It might be prudent to remind the VTHC and the media of this fact!
