The BBC is set to launch a third savage smear attack on the 9/11 truth movement by rehashing a now thoroughly debunked program that it first aired in July of this year.

Having taken its rightful place alongside Popular Mechanics and The History Channel as one of the 21st century’s most plentiful peddlers of yellow journalism with their first 9/11 hit piece last year, “Auntie Beeb” had another crack at the whip on July 6th when it aired a documentary about the collapse of WTC Building 7, the 47-storey skyscraper that imploded into its own footprint on 9/11 without being hit by a plane, called “The Third Tower”.

The program claimed to offer the solution to the “final mystery of 9/11″. Clearly the fact that the BBC has trotted out another version of this same documentary within four months is an admittance of a failure to do just that.

The latest piece, to be aired this Sunday, is the same program that was previously broadcast, but this time around it will feature “new interviews with the lead official investigator and an important new eyewitness together with architects, scientists and others who think there was a sinister plot to destroy the building.” according to the BBC’s Conspiracy Files website.

The re-arranged title 9/11 – The Truth Behind The Third Tower is either a clear backhanded slap in the face directed at the self titled 9/11 Truth movement or a ploy to attract attention off the back of the notoriety the movement has garnered through dedicated grass roots activism and continued research.

The Program is a part of a new series of The Conspiracy Files, once again produced and directed by Mike Rudin, who has already set about desperately attempting to drum up ratings for the re-hash by stirring the pot on the BBC editor’s blog.

Rudin links to a We Are Change video posted on on October 7th, and states:

I’ve just been sent a video on the net which accuses me of being “Eurotrash” and of producing a “hit piece” about 9/11.

He then rattles on about becoming “enmeshed in the ever growing net of the conspiracy theory” and cites the latest NIST report, a document already thoroughly discredited, as conclusive evidence that there is no conspiracy.

Rudin then reveals that the new eyewitness to be included in the re-hash is Michael Hess, the man that was inside building 7 with deputy emergency coordinator Barry Jennings. At the time Hess was Mayor Rudolf Giuliani’s chief lawyer.

Hess originally stated that, like Jennings, he heard explosions inside building 7 before either of the twin towers had collapsed. Jennings gave a lengthy interview to the BBC which was included in The Third Tower.

Rudin reveals a complete reversal of position from Michael Hess in the re-hash:

[…] as our interview with him shows, he is now certain that he did not hear an explosion. He just assumed on the day it could have been an explosion because he had witnessed the lights going out, the staircase filling with smoke and the building shaking vigorously.

A fact Rudin does not touch upon, however, is that Barry Jennings, who for a long time tried to remain anonymous as he feared for his own safety, has since died in suspicious circumstances.

Small wonder Hess reversed his position then, don’t you think Mr Rudin?

Watch Alex Jones’ breakdown of the Mysterious Death of Barry Jennings:

As we reported shortly after the broadcast of The Third Tower, an army of informed truth activists joined forces to point out the gargantuan number of errors, ad hominem smear tactics, bias and shoddy investigative techniques displayed in the program.

One of the most glaring examples of this came with the blatant attempt to distort WTC complex leaseholder Larry Silverstein’s now infamous “pull it” comment to give the impression he was not referring to the collapse of building 7, but instead to a firefighting operation inside the building, an operation that never actually occurred according to the official FEMA report.

Mike Rudin now says he will include Silverstein’s full statement in the re-hash.

The BBC’s zealous efforts to redeem its name by ceaselessly attacking the 9/11 truth movement accelerated after the broadcaster was shamed when footage from 9/11 emerged of their correspondent Jane Standley reporting that WTC 7 had collapsed even as it remained standing in the shot behind her head.

Questions as to how this could have happened and allegations that news corporations, whether wittingly or unwittingly, were being fed a script on the day of 9/11 as it unfolded were met with hostility, and the BBC claimed it had “lost” the tape.

The tape was miraculously “discovered” again on the eve of the broadcast of their latest hit piece but the footage was not shown in the program, presumably to avoid further embarrassment.
