9/11 an inside job, says Irish pop folkster
9/11 conspiracy theorists will be delighted to learn that they've gained some poptastic backing from Corrs guitar-botherer Jim Corr, who's declared that there's "overwhelming evidence" the Twin Towers attack was perpetrated by "rogue elements in the Bush neo-con administration".
His comments came during an interview with Today FM's Last Word, in which he roundly tongue-lashed the Treaty of Lisbon, the Irish Independent explains.
Said treaty will, according to the EU, "provide the EU with modern institutions and optimised working methods to tackle both efficiently and effectively today's challenges in today's world".
According to Corr, though, "the EU is a stepping stone towards a world government, they will merge it with the Asia Pacific Union, the African Union and the North American Union", and the treaty will bring "a scientific technocracy to Europe which will erode national sovereignty".
Specifically, Corr weighed into The Charter of Fundamental Rights, which he says "makes provision for the introduction to law for the death penalty in times of war or imminent threat of war".
Corr explained that such provisions represented "tip-toe totalitarianism in the West" and that 9/11 is "the key to understanding this". He concluded: "When you study 9/11 it becomes very apparent... it was a staged terrorist attack, what they call a false flag operation."
Corr's opposition to the Treaty of Lisbon is apparently based on three years "studying the New World Order which the European Union is a part of". Readers can judge for themselves to what degree the treaty threatens democracy in the overview here and the full-fat version here. ®
