A true Australian hero has emerged with enough courage and honor to stand up and point out the huge elephant in the room. In 2006 Kevin Bracken publicly stated:
“If they want to stop terrorism they’ve got to look at who was really behind September 11”.
More recently, sparked off by the Australian Greens request for a debate on the war in Afghanistan. Kevin Bracken, now president of the Trades Hall council and the secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia, stood up and made his views clear once again.
Bracken phoned in and stated to Jon Faine on his 774 ABC talk-back radio program:
“I believe the official story is a conspiracy theory that doesn’t stand up to scientific scrutiny,”
“In my mind the buildings were imploded.”
The 9/11 Truth Movement, with its extremely broad, far reaching and credible list of architects, engineers, scholars, scientists, patriots, military personnel, politicians, actors, artists, athletes and free thinking minds has once again provided a stable platform and support network for individuals to stand up and be counted.
Bracken has however, rightly stated that his opinions are his own, therefore giving his fellow unionists the opportunity to stand behind him in support. Even though, on the 28th of March 2008, the Victorian Trades Hall Council passed the following motion after lengthy debate.
“That this meeting of VTHC Executive Council calls for a thorough, independent enquiry into the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11.
The events of that day have been used to start pre-emptive wars “that will not end in our lifetime”. They have been used to attack civil liberties and legal principles that have been the cornerstone of civilized communities.
There is an urgent need to reassess the way we view the world after September 11 and we call for proper investigation into the events around that day.” – From the minutes, VTHC meeting 28th of March 2008.
Jon Faine on the other hand has inadvertently shown his true colours. As Kevin Bracken later made clear in an interview with John Bursill on the Visibility911.org podcast that Kevin had an email exchange with Jon Faine the night before and was invited to call in to 774 ABC talk-back radio show in Melbourne and make his views known.
The forked tongue of Jon Faine was clearly audible during the discussion on public radio as he damned Bracken for having an alternative opinion and pretended to have no idea that Kevin Bracken was going to call his radio show. It is clear that public figures in the corporate controlled media around the world can not and will not entertain alternative theories on 9/11 and continue to keep their listeners and viewers in the dark. As the ramifications surrounding this issue are serious indeed.
Jon Faine tried to slither away and resorted to spouting questions on JFK and the moon landings in an attempt to slander Kevin Bracken whilst refusing to debate Kevin on his points.
Kevin Bracken rightly retorted with:
“Unfortunately cowards like yourself have set the political agenda in this country for too long.”
It is however, refreshing that Australian news agencies like the ABC, news.com.au and the Herald Sun have covered Kevin’s statements, particularly on this important issue. For this they should be commended, even though most of their coverage has been negative.
It is becoming ever more clear that this issue is going to divide governments and the media, as they find themselves on the wrong side of this issue.
For over 6 years I have supported the 9/11 Truth Movement in an effort to help the world to wake up and question the events of September 11th 2001. The attacks of that tragic day have shaped the political climate in the world. In addition, the events of September 11 have created a pretense for wars of aggression and countless lives have been lost as a result. Yet we still have no official response to the expert evidence which supports the hypothesis that the buildings of the World Trade Center were collapsed with the use of explosives and exhibit all the characteristics of a planned demolition. We must bring into effect a new investigation into 9/11 and let the chips fall where they may.
Why won’t governments address and debate this issue? Why does Julia Gillard, the prime minister of Australia, dismiss alternative opinions like the valid points put forward by Kevin Bracken as “stupid and wrong”. Once again showing her inability to tackle issues of this magnitude whilst presenting no opposition to the arguments he puts forward. Is it because there is no opposition to his views which are supported by over 1,200 architects and engineers? Given that 76.79% of people voted overwhelmingly in support of Kevin Bracken and his views on this issue, Julia Gillard is alienating herself from the consensus of the people who democratically elected her. I suggest she give these views more attention otherwise she risks being in the minority when we do finally see a real debate on this in the Australian parliament.
Julia Gillard, to her credit, did quite rightly state on the floor of the Australian Federal Parliament that:
“The Labor Party is a large organisation, people join it as individuals – we don’t dictate what people think.”
One of the more courageous and ethical statements I have witnessed from Julia.
The gauntlet has been laid down by Kevin Bracken, lets hope that this issue is not swept under the proverbial rug once again. As we now know, there is tremendous support for his views both in Australia and abroad. Demand a new investigation and support the 9/11 Truth Movement now.
Haven’t seen the collapse of WTC7?

Catastrophic Terrorism: Tackling the New Danger – 1998 Foreign Affairs

Here’s a quote from this document:
“the resulting horror and chaos would have exceeded our ability to describe it. Such an act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America’s fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949. Like Pearl Harbor, the event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects and use of deadly force. More violence could follow, either future terrorist attacks or U.S. counterattacks. Belatedly, Americans would judge their leaders negligent for not addressing terrorism more urgently.”
