“9/11 & State Terror” author Len Bracken

 Guest: Len Bracken – the author of one of the first widely distributed books published in the United States suggesting the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. Shadow Government: 9-11 and State Terrorreviewed in the Village Voice, September 2002—presents the “state-terror thesis” and describes the event as an “indirect defensive attack,” developing the offensive-defensive theory of terrorism created by Guy Debord and Gianfranco Sanguinetti. 
Len is a contributor to the new academic-truther book The Dual State: Parapolitics, Carl Schmitt and the National Security Complex edited by last Tuesday’s guest Eric Wilson. Len’s essay, entitled “Schmitt, Ergenekon and the Neocons,” points out that that the neocon 9/11 suspects may have succeeded in the USA, but they failed two years later in Turkey. The neocons (Wolfowitz, Perle, etc.) incited and and orchestrated a “Turkish 9/11” in which fascist/Gladio elements in the Turkish deep state would stage 9/11-style terrorist attacks on Turkish monuments, along with a fake plane shootdown, and seize total power under a Turkish version of the Patriot Act. They were foiled by the Turkish National Police – check out my conversations with the Turkish equivalent of FBI Director and a leading Turkish parliamentarian conducted in Turkey’s magnificent national capitol building in Ankara!

Len Bracken writes:

(Operation) Sledgehammer coincided with the beginning of the Iraq War that had been long sought by members of the U.S. neoconservative network who were uniformly pro-Israeli and disfavored the Islamic orientation of (Turkey’s Islamist President) Erdogan and the AKP.  Turkish public opinion was against the U.S. war with Iraq, and this opposition was reflected in a parliamentary vote disallowing the United States to use Turkey to open another front in the war. 

Len Bracken is the author of the first biography in any language on Debord and has translated a book by Sanguinetti. The kamikaze-style 9/11 attacks, according to Bracken, must always be seen in connection with the anthrax-poisoned letters as interlocking stratagems by the established power designed to gain more power and as a pretext for going on the offensive. Bracken is also the author of a general theory of civil war and of a chronology on the strategy of tension in Italy (Arch Conspirator).
