How the TV networks hid the Twin Towers’ explosive demolition: An interview with Graeme MacQueen

This week on 9/11 Free Fall, distinguished 9/11 scholar Graeme MacQueen joins host Andy Steele to talk about the soon-to-be-published paper he co-authored with Ted Walter entitled “The Triumph of the Official Narrative: How the TV Networks Hid the Twin Towers’ Explosive Demolition on 9/11.”

“The Triumph of the Official Narrative” is the second part of a two-part series that MacQueen and Walter started two years ago with the paper “How 36 Reporters Brought Us the Twin Towers’ Explosive Demolition on 9/11.”

In that paper, they reviewed 70 hours of news coverage and found that the “explosion hypothesis” was the dominant hypothesis among reporters on the ground. In this new paper, using the same 70 hours of news coverage, they examine how the official narrative supplanted what journalists on the ground were reporting.

Don’t miss this fascinating interview with Graeme MacQueen and stay tuned for the publication of the paper next week!

GRAEME MACQUEEN, a prominent professor and Director of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster University took early retirement to devote his time and energy to peace and justice work with a focus on the events and anomalies of 9/11. While deception is a must for war, the campaign for 9/11 Truth hopes to lay a foundation for genuine peace and justice.

Graeme MacQueen, born in Nova Scotia, received his Ph.D. in comparative religion from Harvard University, and taught in the Religious Studies department of McMaster University for 30 years. In 1989 he became founding Director of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster, after which he helped develop the B.A. programme in Peace Studies and co-directed (with $2 million in government, UN and NGO funding) peace-building projects in Sri Lanka, Gaza, Croatia and Afghanistan. He has also contributed to the development of the Women’s Peace Brigade in north India (active now in several states) and was involved for some years in the Third Option, a peace initiative for Afghanistan. He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters as well as four books.

He has specifically addressed the Peace Movement to urge them to overcome their psychological resistance to 9/11 and look at evidence challenging the official narrative. He has also written four articles for the Journal of 9/11 Studies, including 118 Witnesses: The Firefighters’ Testimony to Explosions in the Twin Towers. Dr. MacQueen has written several peer-reviewed articles on anomalies of 9/11, served on the Steering Committee of the International Hearings on the Events of September 11, 2001, and is a member of the Consensus 9/11 Panel.


ABOUT The Anthrax Deception: The Case For A Domestic Conspiracy by Graeme MacQueen


The 2001 anthrax letter attacks in the United States killed five people and

wounded dozens. They were widely blamed on extremist Muslims and

their backers and used to support the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

They were also used to justify and hasten the passage of the USA

PATRIOT Act, which was being presented to Congress just as the first

anthrax victim grew ill.

In October 2001, one of the hypotheses that gained ground was that of

the Double Perpetrator, the claim that al-Qaeda was carrying out the

attacks with the support of Iraq. Much evidence was put forth to support

this Double Perpetrator hypothesis but independent scientists soon

discovered that the anthrax spores came from a domestic lab in the US

serving the military and intelligence communities, not from al-Qaeda or


The FBI then quickly claimed that an individual was responsible for the

attacks and began noisily looking for this “lone wolf.” In 2008 the Bureau

named Dr. Bruce Ivins of the US Army Medical Institute of Infectious

Disease as the “anthrax killer.” Although the FBI remains committed to

the Ivins hypothesis, the case has been disintegrating for the last three

years. Currently, it is justly held in contempt not merely by scientists who

worked with Ivins but by many journalists as well as several US senators.

But this raises the question: if Ivins did not commit this crime, who did?

This book presents evidence to support the following points:

(a) The anthrax attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators, not

by a “lone wolf.” The attacks were, therefore, the result of a conspiracy—

by definition a plan by two or more people, made in secret and resulting

in an immoral or illegal act.

(b) The group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in part, of

insiders deep within the US state apparatus.

(c) These insiders were the same people who planned the 9/11 attacks

(d) The anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a seizure of power by the

executive branch of government through intimidation of Congress and

US civil society. They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence

to and support for the redefinition of US foreign policy, replacing the Cold

War with a new and aggressive global conflict framework, the Global War

on Terror.
