Historic 9/11 Debate with Bigard, Laurent, Kassovitz and Harrit on French TV Oct. 28
11/2/09: We've just learned of (and posted below) an update to this story, which was posted 10/24 at worldfor911truth.org. Sorry for the late notice.
France 2 backs away from real debate, censors Niels Harrit and Éric Laurent
This is an update of our previous article
State-owned television channel France 2 just decided to cancel the historic French debate which was announced earlier this week by Jean-Marie Bigard and reported on World911Truth.org, ReOpen911.info, Infowars.com, 911Blogger.com, and many others. This has been confirmed by Mathieu Kassovitz on Friday.
France 2 supposedly cannot find four credible people that want to debate 9/11 against Bigard, Kassovitz, Laurent and Harrit. Surprised? Maybe we have judged Barack Obama too quickly. Maybe he is right when he says that 9/11 is not debatable. Even one of the most important television channel in France cannot find credible people to support the official story.
Nevertheless, the TV channel will air the October 28 show but with Bigard and Kassovitz only. This has also been confirmed by Mathieu Kassovitz a few hours after announcing the show was totally cancelled. But there will be no real debate.
What we can clearly see here is that France 2 decided to censor Niels Harrit and Éric Laurent, the two 9/11 specialists, by keeping them away from a real and fair debate. This is very disappointing because once again Niels Harrit is censored by a mainstream media.
Isn't the role of a public television to inform people and not to censor them? The information that both Niels Harrit and Éric Laurent have to tell the public is critical. Why did France 2 decide to shut them up? This scandalous decision is quite paradoxical for a TV show called “l'Objet du scandale.”
France 2 is most probably afraid of the consequences of such a debate. A fair debate with Kassovitz, Bigard, Laurent and Harrit could have become a pivotal moment for those who stand against the official story of the 9/11 Commission. A new momentum in the public opinion would have emerge from it.
This proves that the official story is weaker than ever and most importantly, that we need a new investigation now.
We, at World for 9/11 Truth hope a new independent investigation will also look at the work of the media who always try hard to demonize the 9/11 truth movement but also back away from fair debates, both in the US and abroad.
If a TV station decides to censor a fair 9/11 debate, there is no reason why we should not censor it back, whether it'd be France 2, CNN, Fox, or any other, in any country.

Historic 9/11 Debate with Bigard, Laurent, Kassovitz and Harrit on French TV
You have until October 28 to learn French because French TV France 2's "L'objet du scandale" with Guillaume Durand will air a historic debate over the official version of the 9/11 events.
On one side: 4 people with the hard task to defend the official version. On the other side, Jean-Marie Bigard, Mathieu Kassovitz, Éric Laurent and special guest Niels Harrit will tell France and the world why they don't support the official theory and why they find it disturbing.
This is already a victory for the Bigard/Kassovitz camp who challenged the French media to organize a fair debate over 9/11 after being vilified by many French journalists because of their positions on 9/11. They have been called many names and even received death threats. But no serious journalist was able to challenge them on their positions and to seriously make a case against them based on facts. Now will be their chance, and like Bigard mentions in the below video, "good luck to them."
This is also a victory for the 9/11 truth movement because the official US government conspiracy theory is supposedly not debatable. That's what Bush said. That's also what Obama said many times. The very fact of having a real open public debate, wherever that is, proves that the subject is debatable. And it needs to be debatable. The day we stop debating important topics is the day we surrender freedom. Not only is it debatable, but the 9/11 truth movement is growing faster than ever — worldwide — and nothing will stop it.
We hope a fair public debate will soon move to the US media as well. Pundits recently backed away from Charlie Sheen's offer of a fair public debate on CNN's Larry King. Are they scared they won't be able to defend the official conspiracy theory?
This time Bigard and Kassovitz will both be in very good company. Éric Laurent, great reporter and international politics specialist wrote a book in 2004 called "La face cachée du 11 septembre" (lit: the hidden face of September 11). He also wrote books about the Kosovo war, the banking system, oil, Iran, along with the worldwide acclaimed Bush's Secret World: Religion, Big Business and Hidden Networks. Laurent appeared on the French TV talk show "Tout le monde en parle" with Thierry Ardisson in 2003, in which he defended his book on 9/11 in a 32 minute interview. A great interview, with great questions and a fair treatment. Laurent knows about 9/11 inside and out.
As if these three were not enough to create a very powerful debate over 9/11, a special guest will join their rank. Niels Harrit, is the lead author of the 2009 published scientific paper entitled Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe along with scientists Kevin Ryan and Steven E. Jones. It will be Harrit's first appearance on French TV.
We wish good luck to all participants and we can't wait to see this debate. Most of all, we really would appreciate those who will defend the official theory to actually try to support their claims with real arguments instead of throwing names at their opponents. Calling us Holocaust deniers won't help your cause. The Holocaust was real. Rwanda was real. And if there is one thing you should learn from these horrible events is that questioning the power structures is a sign of health in a society. So get over it, we've heard you say it many times over and just between us, you look anything but intelligent when you hide behind this mask.
We will try to post the video here with English subtitles as soon as we can after the debate.
