Chomsky: No Evidence al-Qaeda Did 9/11

Chomsky: US-led Afghan war,  criminal 

Renowned Jewish-American scholar Noam Chomsky says US invasion of Afghanistan was illegal since to date there is no evidence that al-Qaeda has carried out the 9/11 attacks.

“The explicit and declared motive of the [Afghanistan] war was to compel the Taliban to turn over to the United States, the people who they accused of having been involved in World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist acts. The Taliban…they requested evidence…and the Bush administration refused to provide any,” the 81-year-old senior academic made the remarks on Press TV’s program a Simple Question.

“We later discovered one of the reasons why they did not bring evidence: they did not have any.”

Has Noam Chomsky gone sane?

Chomsky spent the first nine years after 9/11 alternately ignoring and attacking the 9/11 truth movement. Had he instead chosen to champion 9/11 truth, and had the rest of the left joined him as it surely would have, more than one million murdered people would be alive today, and tens of millions would not have had their lives ruined.

Now Chomsky is stating the obvious: There is no evidence whatsoever supporting the official version of 9/11. None.

Is this the same Chomsky who wrote two years ago:

Let’s suppose it turns out that the WTC was destroyed by a controlled demolition.  Then who would the finger point to?  Osama bin Laden, obviously. (source)

Did Chomsky really think Osama Bin Laden could have engineered not only the most sophisticated controlled demolitions of the tallest buildings ever taken down, but would have disguised and covered up those demolitions (through his control of such federal agencies as NIST, FEMA, and the FBI)?   Statements like these led me to believe that Chomsky is either insane or not acting in good faith.

Is he returning to sanity? Finally deciding to act in good faith? Or just making a belated attempt to cover his ass for the history books?

13 Thoughts to “Chomsky: No Evidence al-Qaeda Did 9/11”

  1. Of course Chomsky has not "gone sane." He is just doing his job of censoring 9/11 as best he can. His comment is an attempt to short-circuit David Ray Griffin's recent essay on the illegality of the Afghan war based on 9/11.

    Chomsky–and our self-appointed Masters behind him–are likely engaging in some damage control. Peace lovers will be asked to listen to Chomsky so they don't find anything of value in Griffin's work. After all, both trumpet the Afghan war's illegality, but Griffin can still be accused of taxing his readers by forcing them to embrace some "outrageous conspiracy theory."

    Chomsky is still a 9/11 censor, fair and square, i.e. he knows full well 9/11 to be a false flag but defends tooth and nail the cover story. His latest message is in substance:
    a} "the Afghan war is illegal"
    b) "this is easy to demonstrate; I do it in a 30 second sound bite"
    c) "the conspiracy theorists need pages and pages of complex reasoning to derive the same conclusion"
    d) "there is no need for these complex reasonings and irrational conclusions, because the FBI provided all the necessary information"
    e) "don't trust Griffin and his ill-informed followers for a moment; trust me; after all, since you have never caught me making a small lie to you, you know I would never support a big lie"

    Chomsky is still a 9/11 censor. 9/11 truth-seekers are hereby advised of keeping treating him as such. The most interesting statement he could ever make would be to candidly explain the process that persuaded him to contribute to the protection of the most formidable terrorists in history.


  2. Anyone in the public eye that promotes the official 9/11 story is a traitor. Chomsky is a traitor and disinfo agent, no doubt. Cannot be trusted. When speaking about war and peace, if you do not discuss the fact that 9/11 was a staged Mossad operation, you are clearly an enemy of the free people of the world. No other way to put it.

  3. I don't know about San Francisco, but here in Madison, the local left has been split between the fanatical enemies of 9/11 truth and those intimidated by them. Nobody in the local organized left openly supports and works for 9/11 truth. NOBODY. Ask any of them why not, and the first thing you ALWAYS hear is "come on, if it were true, Chomsky would be leading the charge."

    It seems to me that virtually the whole US organized left has been turned against 9/11 truth, and by far the biggest factor is Chomsky.

    Had the organized left taken up the 9/11 truth banner early on, I don't think the Iraq war would have happened.

    But maybe I'm overgeneralizing from my Madison experience.

    "had the rest of the left joined him as it surely would have"

    "Surely"? You seem to assign superhuman powers to both Chomsky and to the left for that matter. One individual could not have single handedly overcome all the many resistances put in place by the most effective psy-op in history.

    Sure, his cooperation instead of opposition would have been quite helpful, but keep things in perspective. This one guy does not have the level of influence you are implying.

    Had he come around sooner, he would have also been largely marginized and/or ignored, like so many others have been.

    from what I see here

    Chomsky is not saying that AA77 didn't crash into the Pentagon, nor WTC towers were destroyed by the controlled demolition.

    He's not gone back to live the truth but trying to regain his reputation so that he can deceive all in the future and contribute to the criminals by degasification.

  7. Dan Noel, very good comment, Chomsky is comedian… an actor… issraelis aare loosing gripe of a huge part of the american people, teaa party won't be enough for them… Chomsky os doing exactly what you described Noel !

    Woody Allen producing Marshal McLuhan ? Good one. Chomsky is stating the obvious. I told you : The 2000 Board of Directors of the Peterson Institute is the heart of the beast.

    I do know about San Francisco and Berkeley. They idolize that fucking lying sack of shit Chomsky. The local left station (KPFA) even gave away "Noam Chomsky tote bags" in excahgne for donations of a certain size during one of their recent pledge drives.

    If it hadn't taken Chomsky 10 fucking years to state the obvious, the left wouldn't be utterly dead today. Instead, it is a wasteland of eff bee eye front groups like ANSWER.

    I've decided. Next time that lair comes to town I am protesting, I don't care if I'm the only one out there.

    Here's a pretty good video that amplifies Chomsky's statement and explains to his fans why they should care.

    The last comment and link was left by a shill. I've had this guy mailing me links on YT in an effort to discredit some of the more honest researchers in the 9/11 movement. You are obviously doing a good job Kevin, as you are considered a worthy target for this vermin.

    i think there is a danger of following false logic. from what i read osama bin laden was a british agent subsequently run by US counter intelligence (bush senior), a pattern for US presidents also. for all i know he was involved in 9/11, these things tend to be outside and inside jobs with the public presentation something else, in the case of 9/11 the public story a deliberate toy story as is normal for a mindrape.

    i have seen enough of chomsky to have the view he knows, knows more than i do. that said he is not free, rather in a position where you are rewarded for conformity and murdered if you tell inconvenient truths.
