Some 13 months after it was first attempted (for the seventh anniversary of 9/11 in September 2008) they have finally succeeded in placing a Reinvestigate 9/11 advert in the Independent. At this rate, they may get a new investigation by 2025! If you want to see the advert, its page 26 of todays paper if anyone is interested. Its easy to spot - its the page in smaller type than the rest of the newspaper.
It is very clear that Reinvestigate 9/11 is very much Mr Henshall's baby. Stating the groups case in The Indy has been somewhat tempered by giving part of the advert over to an a section promoting Henshall's book, and another section advertising his coffee business. Clearly when we started taking adverts on the 9/11 Cultwatch blog we started a trend!
Reading the (advert free) articles about the truth movement in the new Notes From The Borderland, I can't help wondering if we are missing a trick. Perhaps we should emulate Mr Henshall and Reinvestigate 9/11's approach? A section devoted to my stepbrother's french polishing business perhaps? Adverts from Larry O'Hara's chiropodist, or that nice Vietnamese lady who does Heidi Svenson's nails once a month?
Wake up everyone - it is time to smell the fair trade coffee! (And to call for a new investigation into 9/11!)
