Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Washington Post
Posted: May 10th, 2011
While much of America celebrated the dramatic killing of Osama bin Laden, the Sept. 11 conspiracy theorists still had questions. For them and a growing number of skeptics, the plot only thickened. Could the public trust bin Ladens DNA samples? Why was [his body disposed of] in an undisclosed location in the northern Arabian Sea? This has not put a single of the 9/11 questions to bed, said Steven Jones, a retired Brigham Young University physics professor and contributor to the 9/11 Truth Movement. I dont know how you can have closure, when there are hundreds of contradictions to the stories that you were told. The story doesnt end here because we are told bin Laden is dead, said Mike Berger, who works with 911Truth.org, an organization founded to examine facts around the attack. Alex Jones, a radio personality out of Austin, who gives voice to the 9/11 Truth Movement and runs the Web site Infowars.com, sent out a Web headline, Red Alert. Inside Sources: Bin Laden Corpse Has Been on Ice for Nearly a Decade. He lists FBI officials and counterintelligence leaders from Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan who have said for years that bin Laden was dead. Former Council on Foreign Relations member Steve R. Pieczenik even told Jones on the air in 2002 that bin Laden had been dead for months.
