The Growing List of Leftists Skeptical of the Official 9/11 Account

A growing list of people skeptical of the US Government’s official 9/11 account is growing from all sides of the political and religious spectrums. 

While you will be hard-pressed to find many Evangelical religious leaders who will approach this subject, I am very impressed with the thought and reflections found in the Canadian Buddhist researcher, Dr. Graeme MacQueen, in his following article:

“The American left and the reality of 911: Beyond their wildest dreams.”

There are a few things that caught my attention. I will mention only the following. 

He begins by directing the reader to consider the past mystery of the John F. Kennedy assassination and thought processes of Fidel Castro at that time, particularly in light of the Warren Commission.

But beneath the questions lay a central, unspoken fact: Castro was able to imagine—as a real possibility and not as mere fantasy—that the story being promoted by the U.S. government and media was radically false…

He was able to conceive of the possibility that the killing had not been carried out by a lone gunman on the left sympathetic to Cuba and the Soviet Union, but by powerful, ultra-right forces, including forces internal to the state, in the United States.

Because his conceptual framework did not exclude this hypothesis he was able to examine the evidence that favored it. He was able to recognize the links between those wishing to overthrow the Cuban government and take more aggressive action toward the Soviet Union and those wishing to get Kennedy out of the way.

Dr. MacQueen points out how there was minimal ‘leftist’ concern about the Warren Commission’s report. He observes:

(Far left) Noam Chomsky, resisting serious efforts to get him to look at the evidence, said at various times that he knew little about the affair, had little interest in it, did not regard it as important, and found the idea of a “high-level conspiracy with policy significance” to be “implausible to a quite extraordinary degree.” He would later say almost exactly the same thing about the 9/11 attacks, finding the thesis that the U.S. administration was involved in the crime “close to inconceivable,” and expressing his disinterest in the entire issue. 

Dr. MacQueen says it was due to these words of Chomsky that motivated him to write this article. Then he asks:

Why would Castro have had less difficulty than the U.S. left leadership imagining that the assassination of Kennedy had been carried out by and for the American ultra-right and the intelligence community?
