Le Monde diplomatique: "9/11 - an Inside Job?"

Le Monde diplomatique asks "Was 9/11 an inside job?" in its Norway edition, also read in Sweden and Denmark:
"9/11TRUTH: More and more people in the USA are convinced that the American authorities are concealing their involvement in the September 11th tragedy. Statements from witnesses, marked confidential for several years, now indicate that controlled demolition may have taken place. The US government had long anticipated such an incident - as the Republican document from 2000, "Rebuilding America's Defenses", indicates. The 9/11 Truth organisation believes that the USA probably orchestrated the catastrophe in order to justify the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the curtailing of civil liberties within the US through the introduction of The Patriot Act.

(The NIST lead investigator said in last March's New York Magazine that they "don't really know" what caused its collapse, that they are having difficulty "getting a handle on Building 7" in their protracted investigation.)
Multi-programme Italian TV coverage provides another recent example of European discussion of the problems in the official 9/11 story:
A Finnish TV crew, in turn, were present at the recent American Scholars 9/11 Symposium in Los Angeles, discussed here:
It will be interesting to see what they come up with.
Many a reader is probably now asking: "Doesn't this ever stop?" The answer is: it will stop when there is a real investigation of what happened on that fateful day. Right now 9/11 skepticism appears to be breaking out worldwide. In my earlier diaries, linked below, I have shown why it is impossible for anyone who thinks critically and open-mindedly to regard the official story, described in the 9/11 Commission report, as little more than a collection of omissions, distortions, and lies.
