Why is Super Bowl Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll a 9/11 Truther?
As the 2014 Super Bowl approaches, the sports world is abuzz with the news that Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is a skeptic of the official 9/11 story, who is particularly aggressive in speaking his mind.
The gifted field general for the Hawks gave a four-star Army general a grilling over 9/11, sparking a dialogue in forums previously no more political than a quarterback's shoulder injury.
But what were the questions? Reports are muddled. SBNation.com wrote last week of the possible public relations ploy by the military which backfired:
"The sit-down between Chiarelli and Carroll started off normally enough. They talked about the team, and then about head trauma. Chiarelli, who commanded the American forces in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom II, talked about the brain injuries he had seen there. But Chiarelli's mention of Iraq sent Carroll in another direction: He wanted to know if the September 11 attacks had been planned or faked by the United States government.
In particular, Carroll wanted to know whether the attack on the Pentagon had really happened. Chiarelli—who was the top-ranking Army official inside the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into its western side—explained that it had. He said he had lost many colleagues. But Carroll didn't stop there. He ran through the whole 9/11 truther litany."
Military flyovers are a common sight at major sporting events, with the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds adding a touch of militaristic awe to an appropriately testosterone-laden contest. But this time, it was the general in the hot seat answering questions, from a man living out half the male population's wildest dream.
"Whether the attack on the Pentagon had really happened?" Is this guy kidding? Does he really think that the Pentagon is still standing there undamaged in its pristine state before 9/11? That 125 people didn't die?
Since nowhere in the literature of the 9/11 Truth Movement is there any serious question as to whether the attack "had really happened," Carroll was likely echoing the movement's contention that the attack could not have "happened" as the official narrative states. This would be the report released by FEMA and entitled the "Pentagon Building Performance Report".
Even more interesting, sources within 2,000 Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth say that Carroll was a recipient of an information packet put out by the organization, whose founder and Carroll both grew up in the Bay area.
So what did Carroll say? With respect to the Pentagon, 911Research.org, which acts as a depository of the record on 9/11, begins:
""While officials in New York City went about the systematic destruction of the vast amounts of evidence comprising the remains of the World Trade Center, official handlers of the Pentagon strike undertook the much smaller task of erasing physical evidence that a jetliner crashed into the Pentagon. The resulting evidence vacuum created the conditions for a protracted controversy about what hit the Pentagon. "...Read more: http://www.digitaljournal.com/news/world/article/367732
