9/11 Truth nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008 [4]
4 October 2008

Reason for the nomination of
David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement to the Nobel Peace Prize 2008
Supported by 10 professors, or current or former MPs

The wars of the 21st century – what the U.S. President has called 'The global war on terror' - are justified with a tragic event: the attacks against New York and Washington 11 September 2001. This event would come to justify pre-emptive war on enemies who seemed to be everywhere and nowhere. From 2001 terrorism was presented as the biggest threat to Western society, and the foremost evidence of this threat, we were told, were the events of 11 September.

In recent years, however, the 9/11 Truth Movement and their outstanding academic David Ray Griffin presented strong evidence that the attacks of 11 September were not carried out by Islamist terrorists, as we have been told, but by a U.S. 'war lite' as an excuse to go to war against Afghanistan and Iraq (wars that were already approved). David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have presented convincing evidence showing that this 'war elite' carried out these attacks to establish a new enemy after the Cold War, and to start wars in line with their economic and political interests. We believe the most important contribution to peace in the 21st century is the disclosure of these elite political games and the removal of the false reasons for its aggressive wars. This Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have done in an excellent way. If the attack on 11 September was a U.S. 'false flag operation' to justify wars in the Middle East, the disclosure of that fact should be honored with the Nobel Peace Prize. We therefore nominate this David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement to share the Nobel Peace Prize for 2008.

Since 2001, the major mass media - the major newspapers, TV channels and news agencies - have been instruments of war propaganda. While more and more academics, military officers and intelligence analysts presented a growing amount of evidence that 9/11-angrepene against New York and Washington were carried out by people inside the United States system, not mainstream media reported this information. Despite the fact that almost 50% of the U.S. population is skeptical of the official version of 11 September, the mass media has not presented the background for this skepticism. The regular mass media's inability to safeguard their democratic responsibilities have forced the 9/11 Truth Movement to put their information on the Internet. Despite the corruption in the regular mass media David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have been able to present significant information that could have turned war to peace. This, as we understand it made them the most worthy candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The 9/11 Truth Movement began as a marginal group of activists and academics who questioned the official version of the 11 September events. Today, this movement includes about 100 professors, over 200 architects and engineers, 100 former military officers and intelligence analysts, over 60 pilots and 200 survivors or etterlatte after 11 September (see below). The 9/11 Truth Movement also includes former European government members. It includes a former CIA division chief, a former national Etterretningsoffiser and director of the CIAs Office of Regional and Political Analysis, a former Chairman of the National Intelligence Estimates, a former head of the president's daily update (PDB), a former intelligence leader at the Pentagon, a former the leader of the Star Wars program, a former sjefsøkonom for President George W. Bush and a former Deputy Finance Minister and Chief of Wall Street Journal. Many of these people have praised David Ray Griffin's books. The 9/11 Truth Movement has evolved into a larger movement of dissidents who are trying to change the world.

Today we have a peace movement with hundreds of thousands of activists who have turned against the lies, like 'global war on terror'. A significant part of this movement of students, professors, intelligence analysts and military officers protest not only against the war. They have also shown that the United States 'war elite' has stood for acts of terrorism as an excuse for their own wars. It is about an old tactic of 'false flag operations' that have been used as long as wars have demanded reasons for initiation: It allows a secret military force or terrorist attack force one's own military forces or one's own people for an attack war to work as a 'response'. Historically speaking, false flag operations have been used by the British, Germans, Americans, Israelis and even the Swedes. USA started the Spanish-American War in 1898 by attacking their own warships USS Maine in Cuba. In 1962, the U.S. military leadership in a secret document to implement a similar attack against its own warships at Guantanamo in Cuba, as well as to bomb their own marinebase, which would look like a Cuban attack. The document suggested the U.S. terrorist attacks with bombs that explode in American cities and Cuban forged documents to put the blame on Cuba and justify a war against Cuba. President John F. Kennedy approved the plan and was not considered to be unacceptable for the 'war elite'. Two years later, however, was a counterfeit North Vietnamese bomb attack against the U.S. Destroyer USS Maddox in the Tonkin Bay justify war against North Vietnam. A year ago, former U.S. national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski spoke in the Senate, and he said that the United States Government through adopting a 'provocation in Iraq or a terrorist attack in the United States attributed to Iran' may attempt to justify a U.S. military attack against Iran. Justification of war is particularly necessary in more or less democratic countries, and false flag operations are the standard technique to justify aggressive attack. All new evidence of what happened on 11 September shows that this attack was a false flag operation. When David Ray Griffin published the book The New Pearl Harbor - Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 in 2003-2004, he could point out precisely this fact. Soon the 9/11 Truth Movement was born, and it was a global phenomenon. In book after book, video after video and on site by site, the U.S. 'war elite' has been undressed and revealed by Griffin and his colleagues.

The 9/11 Truth Movement has pointed to the U.S. official statements that the administration was taken by surprise on 11 September, while a large amount of evidence shows that the Egyptian, Jordanian, Israeli, German, French, British, Russian and U.S. intelligence services in advance informed the U.S. lead on an imminent attack on U.S. soil. Some of these were specific about the airlines intervened in September against U.S. landmarks as the World Trade Center. Senior Agents from the FBI and CIA informed their superiors about the impending attack, but to his great surprise was the top management is not interested in more information. U.S. officers said no one could imagine that terrorists could fly passenger airliners into buildings in such a large scale, while the evidence now point to the fact that U.S. Air Force and other U.S. agencies had trained for such attacks for months. In the months that led up to 11 Sept. they conducted several military exercises with the aircraft that crashed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon. The official story is not credible.

The 9/11 Truth Movement has also been able to show that the World Trade Center towers were removed with explosives of military type, and bombs planted in buildings. The 47-stories tall Building 7 was removed without it being hit by any aircraft. Over 100 firefighters are talking about explosives in the buildings. Many witnesses are talking about huge explosions in the building's basement. Garage floor in the basement of the North Tower disappeared in an explosion already when the first plane hit the building. Firefighters talked about 'rivers of molten steel'. When the towers were collapsing, the 'volcanoes' of molten steel,' as lava ', under the destroyed towers, and the melting steel was not cold until months later. Experts have said that 'it even burned fires and cream melted steel 21 days after the attack'. Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that the underground fires 'lasted one hundred days'. For several months cream large amounts of molten steel at Zero point on the World Trade Center, suggesting much higher temperatures than the actual melting point (1,560 ° C). Regular fires carbon and oxygen poor carbon fires, as we clearly saw the TV pictures from the World Trade Center towers, will not be near these temperatures. The fact that the molten steel whipped around in the months can only be explained by the massive use of explosives by the military type, or non-conventional weapons. Video and photographs showing massive explosions and molten steel. Specialists point out that steel evaporated. A typical carbon fire can not reach temperatures of over 1000 ° C. To evaporate steel need temperatures above 3000 ° C. The 9/11 Truth Movement has given a great contribution through collecting the evidence. They know now that the attack on 11 September was a mission conducted by a professional military, and the disclosure of this fact is probably the absolute most important contribution to peace in the 21st century, and the most important motivation for giving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2008 to David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Certain groups in the West has not only been skeptical, but also dismay of the fact that the United States' war elite'could be able to sacrifice thousands of American lives in Washington and New York to create the pretext for wars in the Middle East, and to replace the Soviet enemy with a new enemy after the Cold War. Why would the United States 'war elite' sacrifice American lives, they ask. These groups in the West, said no U.S. elite could be as cynical and cunning. But to replace the Cold War order with a global war on terror has been considered essential for these people. Today we also know that thousands of rescue workers after the World Trade Center towers' collapse has breathed the toxic dust, which has tragic consequences. Far more people actually die of the toxic dust than by the fires and collapse. We know also that the White House instructed EPA pollution audit to give people misleading information - they told the new yorkers that the air was safe to breathe, even though they knew the air was toxic. The White House offered with the knowledge and the willingness of thousands of newyorkere by forcing the EPA to present inaccurate information.

The disclosure of the 11 September events as an 'inside job' interferes not only with the justification of the U.S. aggressive war in the oil-rich Middle East and Central Asia, it is also a damper Islamists for the justification of terrorist attacks against Western targets, as Griffin and the 9/11 Truth movement's disclosure of the U.S. 'inside job' can force the Islamist activists or insurgents to understand their own role as pieces in the game of the U.S. authorities. These Islamists will understand that they have been used as useful idiots of the United States 'war elite', which needed these terrorist acts to justify their wars. The contribution from David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement is not only a blow to America's aggressive wars, these contributions are also a very important blow against an Islamist terrorism that has provoked forward or been used to justify the U.S. war against Muslim countries.

In that era the U.S. administration called 'The global war on terror' David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have provided the most significant contribution to peace, and for this they should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for 2008.
