Testimony in the Japanese parliament, broadcast live on Japanese television in January 2008, challenged the premise and validity of the Global War on
Terror. Parliament member Yukihisa Fujita insisted that an investigation be conducted into the war’s origin: the events of 9/11.
In a parliament Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee session held to debate the ethics of renewing Japan’s “anti-terror law,” which commits
Japan to providing logistical support for coalition forces operating in Afghanistan, Fujita opened the session by stating, “I would like to talk
about the origin of this war on terrorism, which was the attacks of 9/11, . . . When discussing these anti-terror laws we should ask ourselves, what
was 9/11? And what is terrorism?”
Fujita pointed out that, “So far the only thing the government has said is that we think it was caused by al-Qaeda because President Bush told us
so. We have not seen any real proof that it was al-Qaeda.” He reminded parliament that twenty-four Japanese citizens were killed on 9/11, yet the
mandate of a criminal investigation by the Japanese government never followed. “This is a crime so surely an investigation needs to be carried
out,” said Fujita (Censored 2008, #16).
Fujita went on extensively to ask “about the suspicious information being uncovered and the doubts people worldwide are having about the events of
The Japanese parliament viewed several slides from the Pentagon and World Trade Center (WTC) sites as Fujita explained each. The slides showed
evidence inconsistent with official explanation: damage in and around the Pentagon was not consistent with the damage a 757 airplane would cause.
Fujita noted, “Also, there were more than eighty security cameras at the Pentagon, but officials have refused to release the footage. In any case,
as you have just seen, there is no picture of the airplane or of its wreckage in any of these photographs. It is very strange that no such pictures
have been shown to us.” A US Air Force official corroborated the fact that the plane executed a U-turn and avoided the Defense Secretary’s office,
a feat that would be impossible for an unskilled first-time pilot to maneuver; and no air defense was made in the ninety-minute interval between the
initial impact of the planes at the WTC and the Pentagon. Fujita added, “It is baffling that no flight records were found at any of four sites.”
On the ground at the WTC sites, both sounds and visual evidence from explosions were verified. Flying debris shot out as far as 150 meters consistent
with buildings exploding. A New York fireman during rescue operations confirmed that a series of explosions resembled a professional demolition, and a
Japanese survivor heard explosions while fleeing the site. The World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7), forty-seven stories high and located one block
away, collapsed into its footprint, seven hours after the main WTC buildings were attacked, in five or six seconds, although no plane struck it and it
had minimal fire damage. Not only did the 9/11 Commission fail to mention WTC 7, but the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA and National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) made no mention of it in their reports.
Fujita went on to detail proof of insider trading from September 6 through 8, when investors executed “put options” to sell stock in United and
American Airlines at a fixed price. Finance specialist Keiichiro Asao responded with confirmation that such complex transaction would be the work of
insiders rather than al-Qaeda.
Fujita then addressed Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, “I would like to know why the Prime Minister thinks it was the Taliban who was responsible for
9/11.” He continued, “We need to go back to the beginning and not just simply and blindly trust the US government explanation and indirect
information provided by them. . . . We need to look at this evidence and ask ourselves what the war on terrorism really is. . . . We need to ask who
the real victims of this war on terrorism are. I think the citizens of the world are its victims.”
“Prime Minister,” Fujita continued, “what about the origin of the War on Terror and the idea of whether it is right or wrong to participate in
it? Is there really a reason to participate in this War on Terror?”
Fujita received support for concluding that the reason for participating in the US War on Terror needs to be investigated and analyzed. Opposition
blocked the extension of Japan’s anti-terror law and colleagues acknowledged his bravery with congratulatory phone calls.
