On April 1st (not an April fool’s joke!), a formal debate was held at the University of Kent in the UK to debate the topic ‘Was 9/11 an inside job?’

This was only the second formal debate about 9/11 conducted at a University in the UK. Arguing in support of the official story of 9/11 was University of Kent playwright and law student Edward Shambrook. Arguing that 9/11 had some element of inside support was Associate Professor Niels Harrit and Ian Henshall. Professor Harrit is a former Professor of Chemistry at Copenhagen University and has been one of the leading scientists working on the evidence for controlled demolition of the World Trade Center towers. He was a member of the team of scientists that discovered traces of thermite throughout the dust from the collapsed towers and had this published in a peer reviewed journal of chemistry. Ian Henshall is the UK’s leading author on the evidence contradicting the official story of 9/11 and is the founder of the UK-based group ‘Reinvestigate911.’

Professor Harrit’s visit to Kent from his home in Copenhagen, Denmark, was funded by AE911Truth, and we thank them sincerely for this invaluable support.

The debate was attended by approximately 60 people and was mediated by Dr. Sarah Lieberman, who is the Programme Director for Politics and International Relations at nearby Canterbury University.

Ian Henshall and Professor Harrit began the debate with a 40 minute presentation of evidence supporting the position that 9/11 must have had at least some element of complicity from inside the US. Professor Harrit spoke first and demonstrated the science behind the free fall of WTC Building 7 and its implications, that is, it could only have occurred after simultaneous dismemberment of the internal structure of the building by means of a precisely controlled process of demolition using well placed and perfectly timed explosives.
