It seems the 9/11 'truth' movement continues to feel rather cold huddling together in the rain, and is looking for new partners.
Ian Henshall of the Reinvestigate 9/11 group has popped up, as he usually does when he is trying to either sell his book or hopeful of an opportunity to restart (again) the truth movement. As with previous years, the approach to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks has smoked him out. This time he sees an opportunity to put out some feelers to the left, who it seems he expects to buy into his view of 9/11.
"It seems a long time ago that the Chomskyite left - Medialens, Alexander Cockburn of Counterpunch (defying many of his own correspondents), George Monbiot (who called us a virus), et al - attacked the 9/11 truth movement as unscientific. Since those days a massive wave of experts - architects, engineers, pilots civil and military, and more - has emerged demanding a real 9/11 investigation and condemning the official story as impossible."
We could also add to that first list the Stop The War Coalition in the UK, the Green Party and the broader Anarchist movement - all areas where truth campaigners expected much warmer receptions than they got, and where attempts to establish viable bases have proved easier to start than complete.
The Rev David Ray Griffin (not a man who has spent any time in socialist or environmental politics) seems particularly put out by this, and has written an extremely lengthy open letter to several leading leftist and green figures who have declined to embrace truth ideologies. You can view it here.
