Japanese Have Washington Post Running Scared over 9/11
The issue, as framed by the U.S. ruling elite’s hometown house organ is very simple; a top insider in Japan’s new government has lost his marbles. The Washington Post’s apoplexy over the fact that Councilor Yukihisa Fujita isn’t buying the official version of what happened on September 11, 2001, is well reflected in the two headlines it gave to its March 8, 2010 editorial. First we have the print edition:
Poisonous Thinking in Japan
Has a conspiratorial view of 9/11 taken hold in the ruling party?
Then we have the even more hysterical headline in the electronic version:
A Leading Japanese Politician Espouses a 9/11 Fantasy
The two paragraphs below capture the flavor of The Post’s screed. I have provided some educational assistance for the reader by supplying useful links. Only the last of the six links was in The Post’s original online version.
Fujita's ideas about the attack on the World Trade Center, which he shared with us in a recent interview, are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion. He questions whether it was really the work of terrorists; suggests that shadowy forces with advance knowledge of the plot played the stock market to profit from it; peddles the fantastic idea that eight of the 19 hijackers are alive and well; and hints that controlled demolition rather than fire or debris may be a more likely explanation for at least the collapse of the building at 7 World Trade Center, which was adjacent to the twin towers.
As with almost any calamity whose scale and scope assume historic proportions, the events of Sept. 11 have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad. The only thing novel about Mr. Fujita is that a man so susceptible to the imaginings of the lunatic fringe happens to occupy a notable position in the governing apparatus of a nation that boasts the world's second-largest economy.

The Japanese lost people on 9/11. Hopefully they were compensated. The Americans lost more. They were compensated.
By now they have spent most of the money. Too late! Complain earlier. You took the money, walk away and shut your mouths.
Just a casual observer here; your cluless and inefeectual post places your age at 15/16? Back to the OP, this has been known for some time, as posted. The idea that a nation of American Occupation would question the events of 9/11 boggles the MSM mind. As the Onion states in it's World Atlas, "Japan: So Sorry we got nuked."

I am so happy that the movement has been getting so much attention recently.
Like Ghandi said: "First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you when."
We are currently at stage 3.
The thing that should stand out to everybody when you see stories like this, is the way the media never addresses the issues. And that is what the whole truth movement is about. We just want to address the issues and questions we have. They call us all lunatic fringe, crazy, fanatical, ..etc but they never address any issues.

I am telling you, a new McCarthyism is coming. If they can't silence people through ridicule, they will flat out start labeling anyone who could be considered a conspiracy theorist as an enemy or a terrorist. If you think it is bad now, it is only going to get worse.
