September 11th 2001

The memory of the terrorist attacks and tragic loss of so many lives on 11 September 2001 in the USA will probably remain in our hearts and minds for ever. To mark its anniversary, we invite you to read again the correspondence carried by M&V over the weeks following the attacks.

From the perspective of time, two decades later, there's still much mystery surrounding these 9/11 attacks. Independent scientific evidence points to the three destroyed World Trade Center buildings being demolished by controlled demolitions, and there's suspicion of a cover-up of this fact at the time by the US authorities. Could the attacks have been staged as a 'false flag' operation to enable the subsequent US invasion of Afghanistan? The organisation Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is still trying to find out more.
