On the 8th of March 2010 Cynthia McKinney (a former US Congresswoman and 2008 Green Party Presidential nominee) and Dr Nafeez Ahmed (best selling author and political scientist) addressed a meeting of Members of Parliament on the subject of the need for an independent investigation into the events of September 11th 2001. (Video here.)
Nafeez Ahmed's The War on Freedom, How and Why America was Attacked, September 11, 2001, published in 2002, was the most important and influential 9/11 truth book until David Ray Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor came out in 2004. (Griffin has acknowledged borrowing heavily from Ahmed.) Gore Vidal called The War on Freedom "Far and away the best and most balanced analysis of September 11."
Dr. Ahmed has published several other important works on the "war on terror" and related subjects. He is a contributor to 9/11 and American Empire v.2: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out, which was recently translated into Arabic.
