BBC report proves 9/11 was arranged

Interview with Stephen Lendman, writer and radio host, Chicago.
An analyst reminds us on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 explosions that WTC Building 7 was reported by the BBC to have collapsed -- 26 minutes prior to the event occurring.
Press TV talks with Stephen Lendman, writer and radio host about how the American people while commemorating the deaths of those in New York neglect to include the millions of innocent dead Iraqi and Afghani civilians that resulted thereafter. He also talks about Project for a New American Century (PNAC) as a criminal element within the highest level of US government whose agenda corresponds with the 9/11 event. Following is a transcript of the interview.
Press TV: You are watching part of the ceremony -- When we consider what has happened since 9/11 in terms of the security, is America secure from terrorist attacks? Has the world become a safer place?
Stephen Lendman: I have written volumes on 9/11 and I am appalled by the hypocrisy, by the duplicity of honoring people that were killed in New York where the entire event (official story) was something entirely different. But there is no honoring in New York... no commemorating of the millions of innocent people killed in Muslim countries that my country (US) and its allies have murdered -- that's the only way to say it -- they have been murdered, millions of them and it began before 9/11, but it especially got horrific in the post 9/11 years.
I cannot forgive my country for this grievous crime that the annals of history one day will report accurately and everyone will know what America's media and political Washington won't say today.
Press TV: There are a lot of question asked by authorities of what happened during this past ten years. What questions would you ask American authorities as far as the 9/11 attacks are concerned?
Stephen Lendman: Well, I would ask them some of the questions that some disenchanted members of the 9/11 Commission began posing in recent times including a former US Senator Max Cleveland who resigned from the 9/11 Commission calling what they were doing “a national disgrace.”
There were others who basically said in so many words, “we were lied to; we were ordered to suppress the truth and present a litany of lies so that the American people and the world would never know the truth about what actually happened on this day; who was responsible; what it was all about.”
And of course what it was all about was an organization, an extremist neo con think tank called the Project for a New American Century. They published a report years before 9/11 and they basically said that America needs to reinforce its defenses; build up its military and institute a policy to ensure that America had unchallenged global hegemony. But this could not happen without a catalyzing event of the order of a second Pearl Harbor. Well, America got its second Pearl Harbor.
Members of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) included Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Chaney, and Paul Wolfowitz -- all criminal members of the Bush administration directly responsible for waging war on non-belligerent countries and at home against innocent Muslim Americans.
America declared war on Islam as well as non-belligerent countries. These are grievous war crimes.
Press TV: The question of 9/11 of course remains of who was behind it, but for how long do you think the American authorities are going to cling to that -- up hold the idea of 9/11 being orchestrated by terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and perhaps find other countries to invade?
Stephen Lendman: Well, al-Qaeda had nothing to do with 9/11 this was a fake trail and I agree with your president -- he's right when months back he was very critical about the 9/11 story... and I agree with him -- this was absolutely a state-sponsored event. I know distinguished researchers who have done extensive research of the facts behind 9/11. As far as I'm concerned its case closed.
There were no “crazed Arabs” responsible; it wasn't Bin Laden; it wasn't al-Qaeda -- this was a very carefully planned and executed event. And it was impossible that aircraft could strike the twin towers in New York and ignite a fire with kerosene -- airline fuel -- that doesn't burn anywhere near hot enough to melt steel to bring those towers down -- and they collapsed at near free fall speed -- a physical impossibility.
There was only one way that could happen -- those buildings were rigged with dynamite to send them down and all the evidence was hauled away and destroyed so nobody could get their hands on it. But there was evidence gotten from WTC Building 7 that came down later in the afternoon. The BBC that day reported WTC 7 coming down 26 minutes before it happened. How about that! Do you smell something rotten in that account?
