Robert Fisk—who believes the use of depleted uranium in the Middle East may be causing him to remove his pullover in Toronto—now indicates his faith in the Great 9/11 Conspiracy, as Andrew Bolt reports:
He often spoke in the US, he said, and “more and more people in the audience believe the American administration had some kind of involvement”.
“I have to say before you clap (indeed, some in his audience were applauding) I don’t have any proof of that.
“I mean, the worst I can envisage is that they know something was coming and they preferred it to happen so that their strategy could be put into place.”
(Hmm. What sinister strategy would that be, Bob?)
But Fisk could not leave it even at that: “Serious people across the States are asking—people in Iowa, for God’s sake—are asking me in letters, ‘What really happened? How did those buildings fall so neatly down?’
“And I can’t answer them except to say I am in Beirut and not New York and I can’t investigate this. But there are a lot of things we don’t know, a lot of things we’re not going to be told.”
If only someone of Fisk’s forensic talent could be found among New York’s ignorant citizenry. Until then, the serious people of Iowa—people in Iowa, for God’s sake!—will puzzle over the World Trade Centre’s allegedly controlled demolition.
