The Political Suspicions of 9/11
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of New York Times

A coming episode of the acclaimed FX drama Rescue Me will tackle what may sound like a far-fetched plot line: that the attacks of Sept. 11 were an inside job. The actor who espouses the theories on camera, it turns out, also subscribes to them in real life. The second episode of Rescue Mes fifth season, starting in April, may represent the first fictional presentation of 9/11 conspiracy theories by a mainstream media company (FX is operated by the News Corporation). Theyre not discussed a lot in the press, Daniel Sunjata, the actor who plays Franco Rivera on Rescue Me, told reporters at a television press tour last month. In the episode, Mr. Sunjatas character [describes] a neoconservative government effort to control the worlds oil, drastically increase military spending and change the definition of pre-emptive attack. To put it into action, he continues, what you need is a new Pearl Harbor. Thats what they said they needed. Mr. Sunjata surprised some of the TV reporters when he said that he absolutely, 100 percent supports the assertion that 9/11 was an inside job. The alternative theories seem to me to make a lot more sense than the ones that are popularly espoused, he said, calling it admirable that the conversation was allowed within Rescue Me. Peter Tolan, an executive producer, said Mr. Sunjata is well read and has done a lot of research. Look, obviously not all of us buy in, he told reporters. But we went: Wow, thats interesting, and hes passionate about it. Lets use that.
