UK's 2nd biggest evening paper has full page on '9/11 was an Inside Job'
9/11 Blogger | January 23, 2007
Whatever our views of David Shayler are, this surely counts as a major boost for 9/11 Truth.
I am a fan of Big Dave. He is not the most tactful person around, but he is for real.
''This is the defining issue of humanity. We have never lived with such control''
That's a bloody good slogan. I'm going to make that my signature.

9/11 was an inside job says Shayler

EX-MI5 officer David Shayler, who will be in Liverpool to launch the Truth Movement, tells Paddy Shennan what he thinks about the New York terror attacks
FORMER spy David Shayler doesn't have a story to tell. He has a million. And a lot of them might even be true.
Talking to him was incredibly interesting – and not just because he reckons he could be bumped off by dark forces at any time, thereby becoming the UK's own Alexander Litvinenko.
We spoke on the ‘phone because, well, you can't be too careful. I certainly wouldn't fancy getting in a car with him – he says he has suffered three suspicious, potentially-fatal road accidents, in 1997 (driver fell asleep), 2002 (rear tyre exploded) and 2005 (dodgy brakes).
Call the writer and activist whatever you want, but don't call him boring. Because you'd be as wrong as wrong can be.
This is a man who worked for MI5 for five years, sold a story to a newspaper, fled abroad and, eventually, after being called a traitor to his country, jailed.
And now . . . he claims 9/11 was an inside job.
He has even been quoted (out of context, he protests) in a magazine saying: “Yes, I believe no planes were involved in 9/11 . . . The only explanation is that they were missiles surrounded by holograms made to look like planes . . . Watch the footage frame by frame and you will see a cigar-shaped missile hitting the World Trade Centre.”
However, he tells the ECHO: “I was misquoted. This was a clear and deliberate attempt to send someone in and stitch us up. They used the quote out of context.
“What I am still saying is go onto the internet and look at the footage . . . people have had a go at me saying there were no planes but there is little evidence to show that jets went into the buildings. I'm entitled to say they didn't and something else did . . . You can make some accurate calculations from Newton's laws of motion.”
This is where he's got me. I saw planes going into the World Trade Centre but Newton's laws of motion are a mystery to me. As is quantum mechanics, which David also mentions during another part of our conversation.
Now a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement – formed after the publication, in July 2004, of the official 9/11 Commission Report – Shayler and his partner and fellow former MI5 officer Annie Machon will be in Liverpool later this week, as support for the “inside job” theory gathers momentum.
The newly-formed Merseyside Truth Movement is hosting “An Evening With Real Spies Unravelling The Lies” event (free admission) from 7.30pm on Thursday at The Casa in Hope Street.
Gary Fletcher, 45, from Wavertree, a rescue boat driver in the North Sea, is one of 14 members of the local group. He says: “I saw the second plane hit the World Trade Centre on TV and my initial reaction was that it was a terrorist attack. But when I saw shots from the Pentagon I thought ‘There's something funny going on here' – especially with four planes being able to spend that much time in the air without being shot down.”
Short Changed, a documentary about 9/11 made by a group of Americans, will be shown at the Casa and then followed by talks by Shayler and Machon on state terrorism and the aims of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Shayler, who worked in MI5's political and counter-terrorism departments in the early 1990s, says: “I'm not trying to blow my own trumpet but the credibility I add to the movement is enormous” (I can hear a trumpet!).
He adds: “Liverpool is one of our target cities, as it has a reputation for radicalism and questioning the powers-that-be. We are calling for the inquiry to be re-opened.”
There are, according to the non-believers, many more questions than answers – not least concerning the collapse of the twin towers: “All the evidence points to controlled demolition,” claims Shayler.
The Pentagon? “We can say, hand on heart, there is evidence of missile damage.”
Many will agree – many do agree, just look on the internet – but what about the danger of mass ridicule, in a David (“I'm the Son of God”) Icke kind of way?
“You must have the courage to tell the truth,” says Shayler.
David Shayler is 41. But will he reach 42? He says: “I believe in a higher power. I have no fear of death” – which may be just as well, as he claims: “There have been three attempts on my life in car crashes – two when I was an atheist” (he now practices Kabbalah, described as the world's oldest body of spiritual wisdom).
Regarding the future, he says: “This is the defining issue of humanity. We have never lived with such control .”
George Bush, though? Some might say he couldn't even control his own bowel movements. But, says Shayler, it goes much deeper than Bush and Tony Blair.
“Bush and Blair are puppets . . . Blair may be more intelligent than Bush, but they are both clearly patsies.”
But I can still hear people shouting: “This is madness!” How would you respond?
“I would say that in 20 years time their kids may be asking them ‘Why is it we used to live in a democracy and don't any more?'”
Told you – he's not boring, is he?
