Michael Welch for Global Research: Your interest in 9/11 Truth started a few years ago after the event. Might I ask what specifically about this event left you convinced that the official story was flawed?
James Corbett: In order to understand the effect of discovering the fraud of the event, I have to return to the day itself—to the events and the way they played out. And like, I imagine, much of the public on that day, I rather unquestioningly accepted a lot of what I was being told and what was being shown to us, with a growing sense of unease about the ways that 9/11 was clearly being used as a political bludgeon on the geopolitical stage in order to enact a war agenda that obviously started to rankle. But any suggestion that there was anything untoward about the events themselves seemed to me outlandish conspiracy theory.
Which is interesting, because, of course, growing up I had been willing to question all sorts of things. I did not believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone nut, or those sorts of things. But in this particular event—perhaps because of the trauma of the events themselves and the way they were presented—I found it difficult to go there.
