Oliver Stone ready to blow the whistle on 9/11 like he did JFK
Oliver Stone hints at film tackling 9-11 'conspiracy'

MOSCOW -- US filmmaker Oliver Stone, who surprised many with the patriotic flavor of his new film "World Trade Center," hinted here Monday that he is considering a more controversial follow-up investigating the "conspiracy" around 9-11.

"There is a great story in a movie, a conspiracy by a group of people in the American administration who have an agenda and who used 9-11 to further that agenda," he told journalists while in Moscow as part of a world tour to promote his latest movie.

There could be a "fascinating project (on) what happened after September 11," the director said at his packed press conference on the fifth anniversary of the attacks, wearing a light blue, open shirt and dark jacket.

"World Trade Center" tells the story of two New York police officers who were trapped in the ruins of the collapsed twin towers but survived after being found by a retired US marine.

Critics used to Stone's anti-establishment anger in films such as "Salvador", "Platoon", JFK" and "Nixon", were surprised that "World Trade Center" avoids politics and instead concentrates on traditional Hollywood themes of individual courage, sacrifice, faith and family ties.

At his press conference, Stone accused President George W. Bush of mishandling the fight against Bin Laden's militants and using the crisis to stoke fear and bolster his own power at home in a way that was "right out of George Orwell".

"I think there's been an abuse of the powers of government," he said.

Is he going to be as factually wrong on 9/11 as he was on JFK?

Speaking of conspiracies, I know someone who works in D.C. a few blocks from the Pentagon and saw the plane that flew into the building.

when there is a " true conspiracy" 5 % know about it and only 2 % are involved.

They only interview the 93% and call everyone else crazy for believing in the conspiracy like MLK JFK and now 9/11.
