Member of Japanese Diet Doubts Official
9/11 Fairy Tale
Sunday January 13, 2008
Don’t expect the New York Times or CNN to report on Fujita Yukihisa’s
grilling of Japanese PM Fukuda over the official 9/11 fairy tale.
Yukihisa is a member of the House of Councillors in the Diet, that
is to say the national legislature of Japan, and his questions about
the transparent sham that is the official version of events is indeed
a big deal — but not as important in America as the travails of
Britney. Yukihisa’s presentation was all the more important due
to the fact he was the Chief Cabinet Secretary under former PM Junichiro
Koizumi in 2001.
Although we don’t yet have an English translation of the video
— taped from Japanese television — now appearing on YouTube,
the 911.video.de site posted the following, apparently a translation
On January 11th 2008 member of Parliament Yukihisa Fujita
of the Japan Democratic party, made a 20 minute long statement at the
House of Councillors, the upper house of the Diet (parliament) of Japan.
He questioned the official version of 9/11 presented to the Japanese
government and the public by the US administration in a session of the
He asked the current Prime Minister Fukuda who was the Chief Cabinet
Secretary under Koizumi cabinet in 2001.
“How could terrorists attacked the Pentagon?”
(Article continues below)
He asked whether Terrorism is crime or war. Some Japanese people
were killed, so he believes this was a crime, so Japanese police should
investigate the real suspect even though Japanese government assumed
that the suspect was Al-Queda since Bush told Koizumi so and sent
the self-defense force to Iraq. Can Japanese police arrest president
Bush if he was one of the suspects?
The statement was made in connection with the discussion
about the renewal of the Japanese logistic assistance program for the
US navy in the “fight against terrorism”.
US President George W Bush has recently pressed Japanese Prime Minister
Yasuo Fukuda to ensure Tokyo resumes crucial naval operations to support
the war in Afghanistan. The Japan Democratic party which is in the
opposition is blocking the resumption of the mission,which supplies
fuel and water to US-led forces operating in the Indian Ocean.
The government wants to continue and to be part of the fight against
terrorism. The opposition argues that the operation has not been approved
formally by the United Nations. It claims that oil supplied by Japanese
ships has been diverted for use in operations in Iraq, an accusation
the Americans deny.
The government has made changes to the legislation which authorizes
the mission. It has to be renewed every year after approval by parliament.
The new law says Japanese ships can only refuel and supply water to
vessels on anti-terrorism patrols. Ships involved in military operations
— whether they be attacks, rescue operations or humanitarian
relief — will not receive Japanese supplies.
Yukihisa Fujita did question Defense Minister Shigeru Ishiba and
Minister of Finance Fukushiro Nukaga about the way in which the US
government did inform the Japanese government about the people responsible
for the 9/11 attacks.
Mr.Yukihisa Fujita stressed that of the 24 people that died on 9/11
only 13 were identified and 11 bodies remain unaccounted for. He pointed
out that there was never an official police investigation into the
deaths of these japanese nationals.
He then explained that in the USA many people doubt the official
version of 9/11 and numerous websites and scientists have collected
evidence that contradicts the governments version..
He presented several largescale photographs of:
a) the Pentagon entry and exit hole
b) the flight path towards the Pentagon
c) the exploding WTC towers
d) the WTC 7 collapse.
He concluded that the japanese governments support of the “war
against terror” is solely based on information provided by the
US-administration. He demanded further investigation in the face of
the governments drive to support the war more actively.
Yukihisa Fujita was elected to the House of Councillors for the first
time in 2007
The Democratic Party of Japan (Minshinto) is a social liberal political
party founded in 1998 by the merger of several smaller parties.
It is the second-largest party in the House of Representatives
and the largest party in the House of Councillors, and it constitutes
the primary opposition to the long-dominant Liberal Democratic Party.
Here we have a respected Japanese politician asking on public television
if Bush can be arrested in connection with events of September 11, 2001,
and the corporate media finds this unworthy of publication or even mention
But then, of course, the neocon corporate media, snugly in bed with
the “defense” industry and long ago sold down the river
by the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, has ignored the coming out
of former Italian president Francesco Cossiga, who declared the attack
was a CIA and Mossad operation. As well, they have ignored former German
Intelligence Minister Andreas von Bülow, who stated his informed
belief that 9/11 was orchestrated at the highest level of the U.S. government.
Once again, another important news story is relegated to the memory
