Synopsis:
Challenges to the official story of the 9/11 attacks, which happened 10 years ago, are multiple and based on a large number of puzzling and still unanswered questions. Many people and organisations worldwide demand an independent and much more thorough investigation. Despite the size of the movement, the relevance of the questions it asks and the legitimacy of its members (victims’ families, firefighters, architects, engineers, pilots, etc.), the mainstream media would rather bury their heads in the sand, refusing to question this major event of our time, which has been the basis for a new political era and several wars. With a passionate and almost irrational eagerness, they keep parroting the official story. With very few exceptions, their attitude purports to discredit anyone who dares to doubt and think for themselves. Especially in the French media, it has become impossible to voice dissent on the subject without immediately raising accusations of anti-americanism or antisemitism. A disenchanted reflection on a profession that seems to have forgotten its duty to doubt, ask questions and investigate.
