Jack Blood: Have you had a chance to take a look at a lot of this
information coming from America's leading scholars, physicists, engineers,
etc. Who have taken a look now at 9/11 and are now, not only questioning
what might have happened on 9/11, but really being very direct including a
number of high level .
Daniel Ellsberg: Actually, I have looked at a lot of that, and I'll tell
you without going into it all which would take a lot of time, I find some of
it very implausible and other parts of it quite solid, and there's no
question in my mind that there's enough evidence there to justify a very
comprehensive and hard hitting investigation of a kind that we've not seen,
with subpoenas, general questioning of people, and raising the release of a
lot of documents, there's no question that (D.E. chuckles) put it this way,
very serious questions have been raised, about how much they knew beforehand
and how much involvement there may been. Is the, is a administration
capable, humanly and physiologically of engineering such a provocation? Yes,
I would say that, I worked for such an administration myself, Johnson, ah,
President Johnson put destroyers in harm's way in the Tonkin Gulf not only
once, but several times, with the, with a lot of his people hoping that it
would lead to a
confrontation and claiming that it had. And could have resulted in the lost
of many lives in the course of it. And what I'm saying now, by the way
though is this, and here there's a very strong analogy, to this day there is
a controversy gone back and forth historically, as to who caused the
Reichstag fire, the burning of their parliament, the Reichstag, on February
27th 1933. Goering, at one point, the number two man in the Nazi regime,
said "I set that fire", later he denied that at Nuremberg, and I've noticed
that the latest history suggests, that it wasn't the Nazi's. The point is
that all this time later is there is still a controversy about that. But,
what there's no controversy about is the use the Nazi's made of it, that
very night and the next day.
