Editors Note: While we at AE911Truth do not speculate on who carried out the 9/11 attacks or hold an official position regarding other Middle East issues, we do applaud all of the participants in the International Conference to Criminalize War for questioning the official 9/11 story and demanding answers.
Why Revisit 9/11? – a haunting question that rippled out from the introduction of the new documentary film from AE911Truth, 9/11 Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, and into the opening remarks of the historic four-day conference series held in Malaysia by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation from the 19th to the 22nd of November this year.
|The Foundation has a long history of bringing attention to war crimes|
The first of the three-part International Conference to Criminalize War, titled 9/11 Revisited - Seeking the Truth, was most important to our mission. The questions about 9/11, asked from halfway around the globe, are indicative of a world speaking out, a silent majority rising and bearing witness to its own crises, and a world whose citizens are experiencing the projected impacts of that fateful day just over a decade ago. Its message is being amplified for many around the world who are now seeing discrepancies in U.S. government accounts and corporate media portrayals.

But why? Because many are awakening. Many are seeing where we, humanity as a whole, find ourselves today – bearing witness to the seepage now clearly visible in the form of war declarations, lost liberties, economic collapse, illegal military occupations, and crimes against humanity – and we want real answers to real, nagging questions, answers which have over the years been manipulatively elusive. Never before have we had such an opportunity to present the evidence in an international forum of such credibility, which was… world-class from beginning to end.
|Mohamad boldly took a stand for justice by inviting AE911Truth to present at this landmark conference|
More than 400 people assembled in the conference hall, and hundreds more tuned in to the live webcast, in the ambitious effort to put the pieces of the puzzle together about what really happened on September 11, 2001.
|The conference center lobby was filled with full-size educational exhibit panels|
The conference was hosted by Dr. Tun Mahathir Mohamad, the 21-year former prime minister of Malaysia and founder of the Perdana Global Peace Foundation. During his keynote address, he made the following statement:
|The AE911Truth documentaries were played for attendees prior to the start of the event and during the lunch break|
The purpose of this forum is nothing less than the search for truth on an event that has serious consequences for us all. The Perdana Global Peace Foundation is doing the unthinkable. It is going to seek the truth about the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings in NY on 9/11. The official explanation for the destruction of the twin towers is still about an attack by suicidal Muslim extremists. But even among Americans this explanation is beginning to wear thin and is to be questioned. Some of these Americans and others have been invited here to share their views.
|Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth presents to the 9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
It is here that Richard Gage, AIA, was invited by Dr. Mohamad to take the mission of AE911Truth’s 1,750 architects and engineers and over 16,000 petition signers to the podium and address these questions, enlightening a distinguished audience from around the world. Ambassadors representing nearly 30 countries joined other guests in witnessing the irrefutable scientific and forensic evidence that challenges the official 9/11 reports.
|Nile Bowey, a local 9/11 truth activist and journalist in Malaysia, James Corbett, and Richard Gage, AIA, stand in front of Malaysia’s iconic Petronas Twin Towers, which exceed the height of the WTC towers and are listed as the tallest buildings in the world|
In 45 minutes, Mr. Gage rapidly and clearly laid out the scientific evidence and the eyewitness and expert testimony to the audience. He was joined by a panel of experts invited to present incisive facts about the other pieces of the 9/11 puzzle, which provided even greater awareness to the assembled conferees of how the story of 9/11 actually unfolded and was concealed.
Among them were university professors – experts in constitutional law and professionals with highly respected credentials in science, law, politics, and academia – who have dedicated much of their lives to research and investigation into the truth of events that not only contradict official reports, but connect the various dots composing a much larger picture.
|Cynthia McKinney, peace activist and former U.S. Congresswoman, presents to the 9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is the only elected representative to courageously demand accountability, on behalf of the American people, regarding the events of 9/11 by the U.S. government (particularly former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who announced just one day before 9/11 that $2.3 trillion of the Pentagon Defense Budget had “disappeared”). After Ms. McKinney gave her presentation, it was announced that the U.S. Department of Defense is once again at a loss to account for additional trillions of dollars spent in its efforts on the War on Terror.
|Graeme MacQueen, co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies, presents to the 9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Dr. Graeme MacQueen is a Harvard graduate and for 30 years has been a professor of comparative religion and founding Director of Peace Studies at McMaster University. He authored and organized the historically critical 9/11 Toronto Hearings and is also an editor for the Journal of 9/11 Studies. Professor MacQueen presented his analysis of facts about, and the apparent purpose of, the infamous “Anthrax Attacks” – connecting how they were intrinsically and directly related to the 9/11 false narrative provided to the public and exposing the investigative agencies’ deliberate, yet sloppy attempts to portray complicity by Muslim terrorist groups in planning the 9/11 attacks.
|Our formal lunch with the 21-year former Prime Minister of Malaysia gave Graeme MacQueen (far right) an opportunity to ask an informal question. What question would you ask?|
He noted carefully the key role that the main targets of the attacks, Senators Daschle and Leahy, played in the Senate review of the Patriot Act. No legislators had time to properly review the 363-page bill before it was swiftly passed, almost immediately after military-grade anthrax was discovered in the senators’ offices. The Patriot Act revoked key civil liberties that Americans once held sacred.
Michel Chossudovsky is a Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa, founding director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), and author of The Globalization of Poverty and the New World Order.
|Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, presents to the “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth” conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Professor Chossudovsky described 9/11 as a decisive watershed – a breaking point for which we must distinguish between the crimes of 9/11 and the crimes in the ‘name’ of 9/11, which also involve a wave of ‘Islamo-phobia’ (the demonization of Muslims), but also the destruction of entire countries, as opposed to just the acts of destruction and the loss of life on the morning of 9/11. The two events are symbiotically related. He also explained why looking at the chronology of events pre- and post-9/11 is so important in understanding the truth. 9/11 was a casualty-producing event that is an excuse to continue a war of conquest.
He further explained how Al-Qaeda was “Made in America” in 1979 as an instrument created by the CIA and FBI and justification for the war initiatives in Muslim-inhabited lands. He also described why this is relevant to the evident motives the U.S. has for infiltrating, destroying, and occupying these territories. This criminal project of waging war in the name of 9/11 is not only a war crime, but a crime against civilization, he said.
|Dr. Hans Kochler of the University of Innsbruck presents to the “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth” conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Dr. Hans Kochler is a professor of philosophy at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and has a long, credible reputation with the United Nations.
Dr. Kochler stated that 9/11 was the biggest psychological event since the era of WWI. Fear and shock were created among the general population, and this has been exploited for military expeditions and particularly, the interventions in the Muslim world – namely, in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya – in order for the U.S. to preserve its hegemonic position and to ensure permanent control over one of the most important and sensitive geopolitical regions of the world.
|Media outlets from across Asia came to witness the conference firsthand|
He emphasized that, in order to understand the impacts we face as a world today, we must also visit the events leading up to 9/11 – deconstruction of the official narrative is essential in our critical analysis if one wants to understand the consequences of this event of more than 10 years ago that has virtually transformed the global political constellation. The pressure upon us to conform to the emergence of this new order has never been stronger.
|Guiletto Chiesa, former MEP and producer of the 9/11 documentary, “Zero,” presents at the 9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Giuletto Chiesa is a former member of European Union Parliament, a former professional journalist and Italian politician, and creator and producer of the movie, “Zero: An Investigation into 9/11.”
Mr. Chiesa started off with the disturbing prophecy by President George W. Bush that a war is beginning that will last 50 years, highlighting the eerie similarity to the permanent wars created in the novel 1984 by George Orwell. Chiesa proceeded to note that not a single terrorist, including Osama Bin Laden, has been charged for the events of 9/11.

James Corbett is the author and producer of The Corbett Report and producer of the satirical film 9/11 – A Conspiracy Theory, which now has received more than 1.7 million views on YouTube. We appreciate James for filming the speakers who gave presentations at the conference.
|James Corbett, editor of The Corbett Report, presents to the “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth” conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Mr. Corbett’s witty presentation focused on the actions and, more importantly, the inactions, of those U.S. officials whose responsibilities make them directly responsible for what happened at the Pentagon, not only on the day of 9/11/2001, but in the months preceding and proceeding [sic] the event. Most notably, he followed the actions of Secretary Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney.
|Niloufer Bhagwat, Professor of Comparative Constitutional Law at University of Mumbai, presents to the “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth” conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Niloufer Bhagwat, a professor of constitutional law from India, hit legal issues squarely in her presentation:
We are not dealing with an abstract or technical question here – with respect to the events of 9/11. Millions have been sacrificed at the altar of this false-flag operation. And the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States of America has ceased to exist. The United States is no longer a democracy, or a republic. And this is evident from the nature of executive and legislative measures that were put in place immediately following 9/11.;
|Dr. Chandra Muzaffar, president of the International Movement for a Just World, presents to the 9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
Dr. Chandra Muzaffar, the panel chairman for the session on 9/11 War Crimes, noted succinctly that there are great risks, without any doubt at all, for doing a thing like this, as he praised Dr. Mohamad for taking a stand for the truth about 9/11 on the world stage.
The closing statements by the panelists found agreement on several points that were prompted by the panel chairman, Professor Gurdial Singh. He was the prosecutor for the two-day second part of the overall conference, which focused on testimony intended to highlight the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It was a more advanced criminal hearing under the auspices of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War. He led the closing statements by encouraging the panelists to look ahead of these hearings:
|Prof. Gurdial Singh Nijar of the University of Malaya leads a panel discussion on how to prosecute the war crimes of 9/11 at the “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth” conference in Kuala Lumpur on November 19, 2012|
What is to be done? What are the characteristics of what we will do? Should it be international? an Inquiry? Fact-finding? Then, how is it to be done? What are the values that such a fact-finding mission should embrace? What is the process? Should it be open? Transparent? Evidence-based? How does it establish its credibility? What is the scope of the inquiry and its terms of reference? Finally, what will this commission actually deliver?
We can see by the open-ended questions at the close of the first day just how early on in the process they are. The panelists have all been advised that that we will most likely be invited back in six months for the next phase – if such issues can first be satisfactorily resolved.
|James Corbett (right) and Cynthia McKinney (second from right) contemplate the importance of the overall international hearing and how it relates to the truth about 9/11|
Mr. Gage addressed a key concern during his opportunity for closing comments. Many Americans believe that the U.S. Congress, who “blessed” the 9/11 Commission Report that these hearings completely exposed, cannot be trusted with the 9/11 investigation that we are petitioning them for. He noted that:
Most Americans still have faith in our major institutions of government and that we must show that we have at least exhausted these remedies. [Indeed, every member of Congress has been handed our DVD 9/11: Blueprint for Truth.] We also must hold them accountable for the information that we are on record as having given them. Now…we are not naïve. We will more likely obtain justice either through a legally binding, uncorrupted international body, which may be as difficult to come by, or, perhaps more likely, as a result of a grassroots awakening of a critical mass of the American people who would replace our elected representatives en masse with those of integrity, such as former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, here on our panel today.
|15-year-old Mahmood was brought to Malaysia to testify, as he has lost many family members as a result of conflicts in the Middle East|
Other panelists raised questions as to why the evidence has not been brought to courts within the U.S. – which became uncomfortable and embarrassing, given that we live in, supposedly, the most democratic nation on Earth. This highlighted the growing, notorious, and willful ignorance of our executive, legislative, and judicial branches.
The 21-year former Prime Minister noted in closing: Arabs could not have done it, citing their inability to possess and control the highly technical expertise and sophisticated planning and execution required to execute the 9/11 attacks.
Could the intentions of the expert petition signers of AE911Truth, like many others who are aware of the facts, turn into a reality? Will we actually see an international independent investigation take place? I think we’ve made significant progress here in Malaysia. Although this organization does not possess the legal jurisdiction to judge or prosecute those who could be found responsible, it is a preamble for the establishment of credible testimony and evidence, as it is a “court of conscience.” And that is a start.
|The song and drama created by these children from around the world was both breathtaking and heart-rending|
No longer can we ignore the concerted actions of the few that affect the very right to life for each human being on this planet. Their so-called “War on Terror” is nothing more than a series of covert actions intended to wage psychological warfare upon the people, in order to create a complicit public, using fear as fuel to reach their darker objectives.
Contrary to the common western-medicine approach of treating the symptoms instead of the cause, we must now seek out the root of this societal disease and the direct route to its true cure – which may be the pursuit of truth and justice.
|Current Prime Minister Najib has worked closely with former Prime Minister Mahathir to continue his legacy of modernizing Malaysia|
The final day of the conference, referred to as the International Conference on War-Affected Children, hosted an equally impressive array of expert panelists, including doctors, lawyers, politicians, and some child survivors.
Mr. Gage had this to say at the conclusion of the conference:
The closing dinner was attended by the current Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, the leader of an increasingly modernized country of 28 million people, who is in support of the hearings. We sat 12 feet from him and were able to shake his hand and wish him luck in the upcoming election, which is a very big deal here. The cuisine and entertainment at this state dinner, along with our stay at the classy hotel and business class travel, was quite humbling for us 9/11 Truth activists, who are more accustomed to getting by on burgers, buses, and couches.
Following the conference, Mr. Gage and Dr. Chossudovsky were graciously invited to lecture at the International Islamic University of Malaysia, where 107 law students were prepared to receive the disturbing evidence. By a show of hands, 78 students in the class believed the official 9/11 story or were unsure before the presentation; afterward, all but 2 students agreed with the evidence for controlled demolition.
|Gage and Chossudovsky joined forces to present the 9/11 evidence to law school students at the International Islamic University of Malaysia|
Mr. Gage is hopeful that this conference will lead to further successes on the road to 9/11 justice. We applaud the extraordinary vision of Tun Mahathir Mohamad and the courage to carry it forth, he said, and we pledge our support in the next phase of ‘Seeking the Truth of 9/11.
WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:Rapid onset of collapse Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a second before the building's destruction Symmetrical "structural failure" – through the path of greatest resistance – at free-fall accelerationImploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional Foreknowledge of "collapse" by media, NYPD, FDNY
In the aftermath of WTC7's destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered:FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses Chemical signature of the incendiary thermite found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples
WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:Slow onset with large visible deformations Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires) Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed
