Brother of 9-11 Victim Sues BBC

By Victor Thorn —

For over a decade, 9-11 truth researchers have demonstrated that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks unfolded as a false-flag event coordinated by sinister elements inside the Bush administration along with Israel’s Mossad, foreign intelligence services and the corporate media. Now, the brother of a 9-11 victim, who was killed in the North Tower on that day, has come forward to back this assertion.

On March 23, Matt Campbell of Sussex, England entered a British court, claiming that certain individuals at the BBC not only assisted in the 9-11 coverup, but also possessed foreknowledge of the false-flag attack. Campbell’s brother, Geoff, died on 9-11 when the building he was in—World Trade Center (WTC) 1—collapsed.

Specifically, Campbell cites a well-known broadcast in which reporter Jane Standley revealed at 5 p.m. EDT that WTC Building 7 had recently collapsed.

There’s a problem, though. WTC 7 didn’t crash to the ground at freefall speed until 5:20 p.m. EDT. To corroborate this, Campbell has footage showing Ms. Standley providing her live-feed to a BBC audience, while WTC 7—also known as the Salomon Brothers Building—stood directly behind her in the shot.

When confronted with this damning evidence, BBC representatives blamed it on a misunderstanding between Ms. Standley and those in her studio. But let’s be clear: Before BBC anchorman Philip Hayton cut to Ms. Standley, he offered a slew of details.

“We’re now being told,” Hayton began, “that yet another enormous building has collapsed. It’s the 47-story Salomon Brothers Building.”

He continued: “WTC 7 collapsed not as a result of an attack, but because the building had been weakened from this morning’s attacks. Presumably, there were very few people in the Salomon Building when it collapsed.”

Obviously, there didn’t appear to be any confusion as to which structure Hayton and Ms. Standley were referring.

The question to be asked is, why would anybody assume that WTC 7—a perfectly sound 47-story, steel-framed building, which had not been struck by any airliners, had not exhibited any sign of exterior damage and had not been consumed by fire—would suddenly collapse within seven seconds?

Skyscrapers do not fall to the ground for no reason. There is no precedence for this type of disaster. Consequently, the only possible explanation is controlled demolition via pre-planted explosives.

Campbell concurs, stating in legal filings that the BBC was “willfully complicit in the deliberate coverup of vital and incontrovertible evidence relating to how his brother Geoff was killed.”


BBC conspirators weren’t the only ones who let information slip too hastily that day.

CNN’s Aaron Brown announced WTC 7’s collapse at 4:14 p.m. EDT, one hour and six minutes before it occurred.

At 9:04 a.m. EDT on September 11, 2001, Liz Foreman of Cincinnati’s WCPO Channel 9 claimed that a plane had crashed into the Pentagon. Yet, according to official reports, this so-called “event” didn’t transpire until 33 minutes later, at 9:37 a.m. When interviewed by this AMERICAN FREE PRESS reporter on August 4, 2008, Ms. Foreman admitted that the Associated Press had fed this story through their news lines at 9:04 a.m.

To add some much needed perspective, on March 18 AFP interviewed Dean Hartwell, author of several books, including Questions I Wasn’t Supposed to Ask.

Hartwell commented on the subject of foreknowledge: “Certain media outlets, including the BBC, knew ahead of time that WTC 7 was going to fall. What we saw that day with Jane Standley was a seam splitting open in the script they were using. The timing of what they divulged to the public in terms of concealing the truth got all screwed up, and as a reporter, Standley stepped out of line due to the information being presented to her.”

As for the big picture, Hartwell said confidently: “Most people don’t want to believe that the powers-that-be would lie to us about something this big. So, when we see examples like that of Jane Standley, it opens up a Pandora’s Box.”

Those who feel that these types of suspicions are only common to 9-11 truthers may be surprised to learn that the son of the world’s most famous astronomer, Carl Sagan, also doesn’t believe the lies fed to us by government and mainstream media sources.

On February 26, Andrew Steele, host of the online radio show “9/11 Free Fall,” spoke with Jeremy Sagan, who described how his eyes were opened.

“I think it was New Year’s 2002,” said Sagan. “I was at a friend’s house, and some parents of another friend were saying that Bush could never do something like this [9-11] because he was incompetent. But in retrospect, now that I think about it, it’s true. I don’t think Bush could really do it. That’s why they had him skirted off to Florida, to get him a bit out of the way. In retrospect, you look at that [the collapse of WTC 1 and 2] and it’s obvious it was a controlled demolition.”

Sagan, a computer programmer, added more ammunition. He told Steele: “Look at Building 7, the way everything was known before it happened, and the way it was reported in the media before it happened.”

Sagan referenced his deceased mother, biologist Lynn Margulis, who had been married to his father Carl for eight years. Convinced that the 9-11 Commission existed as little more than a ruse, Ms. Margulis told the group Scientists for 9-11 Truth in 2007: “19 young Arab men and a man in a cave 7,000 miles away, no matter the level of their anger, could not have masterminded and carried out 9-11. . . . I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly enormous official account of 9-11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough and impartial investigation be undertaken.”
