    Associated Press Tries To Paint 9/11 Truth Solely About Controlled Demolition

    Ex-spy thinks whole story about 9/ 11 hasn't been told
    Silverton resident is a novelist now

    June 5, 2007 - 12:23AM

    SILVERTON - In his work boots, nylon pants and cotton sweat shirt, Robert Baer blends in to this little mountain town.

    You wouldn't guess that he once helped engineer a failed coup against Saddam Hussein, that he speaks Arabic and Farsi, that he once prowled the lawless valleys of Lebanon in service to the Central Intelligence Agency, or that George Clooney played him in the movie "Syriana."

    Only his bookshelves, packed with volumes about Iraq and the Middle East, give any clue to Baer's background. A book about the Russian mafia sits next to his chair.

    In an interview from that chair, Baer talked about messes in Washington and Iraq, unexplored leads in Iran, and the "curious" town of Silverton.

    He has more firsthand experience with terrorists than almost any American, and he is convinced the full story of the Sept. 11 attacks has never been told.

    "We don't know what happened on 9/11. The 9/11 Commission Report was written from witnesses that were tortured - Khalid Sheikh Mohammed," Baer said, referring to the man who has confessed to dozens of terrorist plot while in U.S. custody.

    "So what do we really know?"

    It's a question that helped inspire Baer's first novel, "Blow the House Down." The story follows a dissident CIA agent as he tries to untangle a Sept. 11 plot that points to Iran and an American financier who was playing the stock market based on advance knowledge of terrorist attacks.

    Just fiction, right?

    Not entirely.

    "I'm in touch with a guy who went in to his broker at 3 o'clock on 10 September and said, 'Cash me out.' His parting shot going out the door was, 'The market collapses tomorrow morning at 9,'" Baer said. "He's in jail now."

    Baer doesn't side with the conspiracy theorists, however, who think the U.S. government destroyed the World Trade Center.

    "That's very unfortunate. It demonstrates a naivete that's scary," he said. "It's not that these people are crazy, it's just that they're so consistently lied to, from Vietnam through Iraq."

    The 9/11 Commission never reported the links between al-Qaida and Iran, Baer said. Since his tour of duty in Lebanon in the early 1980s, when the U.S. Embassy and Marine barracks in Beirut were bombed, Baer has been convinced that the trail of international terrorism often leads to Iran.

    And by taking out Saddam Hussein, the United States has played into Iranian hands.

    "We've now put Iran in a position of predominance in the Gulf, thanks to Iraq," Baer said. "And in case anybody's forgotten, the Iranian president is a murderer, he's got blood on his hands, and he's crazy."

    Before the Iraq war, Baer said Bush administration officials wanted to use his arguments to justify the invasion.

    Although the Washington war drums are beating again - against Iran this time - Baer's phone has stopped ringing.

    "I think they eventually figured out I'm fairly far to the left, especially when it comes to foreign policy. I'm far to the right on immigration, only for environmental reasons," Baer said.

    Now 54, he has retired from the CIA and wants no part of Washington. He lives in Silverton with his wife, Dana. He writes a column for Time and skis on Red Mountain. He's also at work on his second book of fiction, a "real novel" about Iran.

    Audio Interview 6/9/06: Thom Hartmann: "Are you of the opinion there was an aspect of 'inside job' to 9/11 within the U.S. government?"

    Baer: "There is that possibility, the evidence points at it."

    Hartmann: "And why is it not being investigated?"

    Baer: "Why isn't the WMD story being investigated? Why hasn't anybody been held accountable for 9/11? We held people accountable after Pearl Harbor. Why has there been no change in command? Why have there been no political repercussions? Why has there been no -- any sort of exposure on this? It really makes you wonder." http://www.911blog.

    Essay 1/12/02: "Did bin Laden act alone, through his own al-Qaida network, in launching the attacks? About that I'm far more certain and emphatic: no."

    Does everyone see what's going on? According to the Associated Press (and other media outlets), the 9/11 Truth Movement is only about how we "think the U.S. government destroyed the World Trade Center."

    Is that what we're known for? Is that what we're all about?


    However, with all of the attention Controlled Demolition gets within this movement, I can understand why someone might think that. Not the media. Lord knows they've helped to create that appearance with their hit pieces that focus solely on whether or not a missile hit the Pentagon, and whether or not the WTC was brought down by Controlled Demolition.

    There are OTHER aspects to 9/11 Truth that don't involve "science", and it's time they start getting more attention. If you're a member of this site, you're well aware of that.
