NEW YORK: UN Human Rights official Richard Falk wrote on his blog that there had been an “apparent cover up” by American authorities.He added that most media were “unwilling to acknowledge the well-evidenced doubts about the official version of the events” on 9-11, despite it containing “gaps and contradictions”.
And he described David Ray Griffin, a conspiracy theorist highly regarded in the so-called “9-11 truth” movement, as a “scholar of high integrity” whose book on the subject was “authoritative”.
Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary-General, described the comments as “preposterous” and “an affront to the memory of the more than 3,000 people who died in the attack.” But Ban said that it was not for him to decide whether Prof Falk, who serves the organization as a special investigator into human rights abuses in the Palestinian territories, should be fired by the UN.
Vijay Nambiar, Ban’s chief of staff, said this was up to the human rights council, a 47-nation body based in Geneva, Switzerland, that was created by the UN in 2006.
UN Watch, a pressure group that monitors the organisation, has called for Prof Falk to be sacked. Hilel Neuer, the group’s chief executive, described him as “a serial offender with zero credibility”.
The row came as the new Republican-led US Congress opened an inquiry into “urgent problems” with America’s contribution to the UN, including its membership of the human rights council.
Comments : After killing thousands of people ,with the help from Pakistan Army and NATO, Pentagon/CIA still is not able to prove their claims about 9-11. War Crimes? War Tribunal? Justice for those who died on 9-11 and who died after that in the name of 9-11? UN Charter for Human Rights?This not a war against terror or terrorism. This is a war against humanity, justice and peace.
On September 11 2001, world saw one of the most horrific acts of terrorism (the most horrible is obviously the nuclear bombing of Heroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during the WWII by USA) in which around 3 thousand people lost their lives.
But even after killing millions of people in Iraq,Afghanistan,Pakistan and elsewhere US government hasn’t yet done an independent (there were lots of cover up investigations to make up some story to justify the war against humanity) inquiry which will give all the unanswered questions.
Recent video by Hollywood star Charlie Sheen is another attempt to push US government for a just and independent inquiry.
Charlie Sheen like many considers 9/11 as an inside job by Bush administration.
or simply watch the video
WE SUPPORT THE CAUSE OF DEMANDING AN INDEPENDENT INQUIRY AND DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THOSE WHO DIED IN THESE ATTACKS AND THE WAR AGAINST HUMANITY WHICH STARTED AFTER THAT.
We are proud that we have a brave soldier in our country with name Dr. Shireen Mazari who despite pressures and threats is continuing her work of spreading the truth about US invasion of Pakistan.
In recent incident US Ambassoder pressurised a local news paper “The News International” to block her column.
According to SANA news agency:
“ISLAMABAD (SANA): Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf spokesperson on foreign affairs Shirin Mazari has claimed that a US base being built in Gharo area in Sindh.
Addressing a news conference Shirin Mazari said the US poking its nose in all affairs of Pakistan and when she started writing columns on the matter the US Ambassador exerted pressure closing her writings.
Mazari said her life has been under threat adding that the Minister of Interior and US diplomats will be responsible if anything happened to her.”
We clearly condemn the actions of US ambassador and demand the government of Pakistan (just a formality we know they are American pets) to expel the ambassador as she has crossed the boundaries of diplomatic norms and harmed our freedom of expression.
