He says even if it was true, "Who cares!" Oh I dunno, the family members for starters! To act as if it wouldn't matter if 9/11 was a false-flag event is beyond words.
Regarding his comments on secrecy, Operation Gladio was a false-flag terror program set up by the CIA and NATO. Although Gladio was eventually exposed, it was not just a single event, but an ongoing operation that remained secret for decades, in which hundreds of innocent people were killed and injured in terrorist attacks that were blamed on other groups.
And as David Ray Griffin points out in his lecture "9-11: Myth Or Reality?":
Myth # 3: Such a big operation involving so many people, could not have been kept a secret because someone involved in it would have talked by now. This claim is based on a more general myth which is that it is impossible for secret government operations to be kept secret very long because someone always talks. But how could one notice? If some big operations have remained secret until now, we, by definition, don’t know about them.Chomsky says that if there had been inside involvement "it's almost certain that it would have leaked." Here are two such corroborating leaks of many.
In November 2007, Patty Casazza, one of the four New Jersey widows known as the "Jersey Girls" who helped instigate the formation of the 9/11 Commission, revealed that whistleblowers told her "the government knew the exact day, the type of attack, and the targets."
As pointed out by to me Fran Shure at colorado911visibility.org this supports an earlier account:
David Schippers the former Chief Investigative Counsel for the US House Judiciary Committee and head prosecutor responsible for conducting the impeachment against former president Bill Clinton. Schippers stated that at the behest of several FBI agents he had attempted multiple times to warn US Attorney John Ashcroft, along with other federal officials, of the impending attacks weeks before they occurred, only to be stalled and rebuffed in each attempt.As summarized in the books The War on Freedom and The War on Truth by Nafeez Ahmed, who personally corresponded with Schippers, "According to Schippers, these agents knew, months before the 11th September attacks, the names of the hijackers, the targets of their attacks, the proposed dates, and the sources of their funding, along with other information."
Finally, Chomsky says that "anybody who knows anything about the sciences would instantly discount that evidence." So evidently these people don't know a thing about science.
One posting of this diatribe on YouTube saw it fit to title the video "Chomsky dispels 9/11 conspiracies with sheer logic." Logic dictates that the possibility the US government killed thousands of its own citizens and subsequently launched two wars, including a war on civil liberties, is of massive importance. A response of "who cares" is what we get from supposedly the world's top public intellectual.
