UPDATE 11/11/09: As pointed out by a reader, Egon Frid has recently retracted his support for 9/11 Truth, stating that it has had a “negative impact” on his career and life. A statement on his blog reads:
“I hope it is clear that I regret that I wrote on the petition and reject the theories, other than the official investigation.”
Political leaders for 9/11 Truth growing in numbers
Monday, Nov 9, 2009
A Swedish Member of Parliament has pledged support for a new investigation into the events of 9/11, adding that prominent political figures support the view that elements of the U.S. government were involved in staging the attacks.
An article headlined “The U.S. was part of the attack” in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet , highlights comments made by MP Egon Frid of the country’s “Left Party”.
“The U.S. administration knew of the terrorist attack before and was a part of it,” Frid said in an interview with Swedish TV network TV4 on it’s “Kalla Facts” (Hard Facts) programme.

“My curiosity has once again led me in new ways and to top it all, I have new theories about what really happened 9/11” Frid writes on his blog.
Frid, who was elected to parliament as a full member in 2006, also stated that he knows there are several leading politicians in Sweden who are interested in the Truth Movement’s message, but they will not go public with their views “because it is an impossible debate.”
Frid also revealed that he has joined the “Political Leaders For 9/11 Truth ” group, to which other notables have pledged support, such as Andreas von Bülow, former German State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Defense, Yukihisa Fujita, Japanese Member of Parliament, Michael Meacher, Minister of the British Parliament, Cynthia McKinney, Jesse Ventura, and many other political luminaries from all corners of the globe.
The group was founded earlier this year, joining the growing ranks of professionals calling for a new independent investigation into 9/11, including the groups:
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
