Richard Falk, a retired professor from Princeton University, wrote on his blog that there had been an “apparent cover up” by American authorities.

He added that most media were “unwilling to acknowledge the well-evidenced doubts about the official version of the events” on 9/11, despite it containing “gaps and contradictions”.

And he described David Ray Griffin, a conspiracy theorist highly regarded in the so-called “9/11 truth” movement, as a “scholar of high integrity” whose book on the subject was “authoritative”.
