9/11 Sceptic since?
“I was suspicious within the first 24 hours of the event.”
Scott cites the discovery of “ID’s” allegedly identifying a number of the Islamic highjackers shortly after the event as the first red flag.
He also points to the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. WTC 7 collapsed on September 11, 2001 at 5:25 PM EST. No plane hit the building, yet it completely collapsed into its own footprint at freefall speed. WTC housed many government and financial offices, including The Securities and Exchange Commission, Rudy Giuliani’s New York City Office of Emergency Management, United States Secret Service, Internal Revenue Service, Central Intelligence Agency, The Department of Defense, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Salomon Smith Barney, and American Express.
Moreover, Scott is deeply suspicious of the behavior of Vice President Dick Cheney prior to and during the events surrounding September 11, 2001.
“[I am a] former diplomat with experience of government and its documents; years of research into deep state.”
His research and writing, particularly the books The Road to 9/11 (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007), and The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11, and the Deep Politics of War (Ipswich, MA: Mary Ferrell Foundation Press, 2008).

Why should we care?
“Canada has a very direct stake in the sanity and rationality of the government of the United States. There’s been a downward trend in this respect for 20 or 30 years now, and very markedly since 9/11. All kinds of changes in the American political system have been introduced that are damaging to the rule of law, particularly damaging to human rights, and of particular concern to Canada. [They] have allowed the Bush administration to engage in very dangerous reckless acts of unprovoked aggression in central Asia, particularly in Iraq, and, of course, this is a matter of extreme concern to Canada. It has provoked intense American hatred in other parts of the world, and we will not be spared from that. Terrorists have come to Canada because of things America has been doing. So, it’s very urgent to get to a rational American government, and I passionately believe that the best way to do that is to get to the truth of what happened on 9/11.”
