Madison Teacher Says 9/11 Is Government Hoax


Mark Green is joining some state Republicans calling for the dismissal of a controversial UW-Madison lecturer, who claims the September 11th attacks were special effects produced by the United States government.

Lecturer Kevin Barrett is the co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth. In past remarks, Barrett says he has no reason to believe that Osama bin Laden is evil.

"Mr. Barrett is free to personally hold whatever belief he wants, inaccurate and irresponsible as it may be,” Green said.

However, Green said taxpayer or tuition dollars should not be going to Barrett telling students that 9/11 was a government creation.

Barrett contacted NewsCenter 13 last night and countered with this statement: "I refuse to buckle under to the politics of fear. It's time for this country to stand up to the bullies in charge. I'm confident that I will keep my job and that the Republicans will all lose theirs.”
