‘The Unofficial Story: Eight years after 9/11, why are doubts growing about
the official record of that day?’

This documentary was originally broadcast on November 27, 2009 on Canada’s
CBC and will be available for viewing at www.CBC.ca (or below, if you are not in Canada).

DESCRIPTION

On September 11, 2001 the world watched in shock and disbelief as planes flew
in to New York’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, and Americans
realized they were under attack. But by whom? What really happened? In The Unofficial
Story, the fifth estate’s Bob McKeown introduces us to people who believe the
real force behind the attacks was not Osama Bin Laden, but the U.S. government
itself.

Emerging from the dust and debris that day was a movement, known these days
as 9/11 Truth or “truthers” — people who believe that 9/11
was part of a vast conspiracy and cover-up by a criminal faction within the
U.S. government. As the fifth estate reports, public opinion polls now show
that the majority of Americans believe the Bush Administration had advance knowledge
of those attacks and somehow allowed them to happen and that one-third of Canadians
share the same belief.

In The Unofficial Story, Bob McKeown explores why these questions and theories
are growing in popularity.

You’ll meet some of the leading proponents of “truther” theories:
Richard Gage, an American architect, explains how the WTC twin towers and the
lesser known ‘Tower #7’ could only have crumbled as they did due
to explosive charges placed inside the buildings. Others, including Canadian
professor Kee Dewdney, insist that the story of the brave fight by the passengers
of United Airlines Flight 93 must have been a hoax. But, you’ll also hear
from others who dispel “truther” theories and try to understand
why, from JFK’s assassination to the moon landing to 9/11, a culture of
conspiracy springs up around certain historic events.

Despite the difference of opinion between those who blame the hijackers and
those who blame their own government, the real importance of the fight over
9/11 truth is that it may have less to do with the past than the future.

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!
