85. not dishonest at all
Edited on Mon Jun-02-08 04:51 PM by Andre II
My German is quite ok.
The translation is correct. Only the last German sentence in the original it is said that Ganser is going even further in his criticism then Stahle.
The rest of Ganser's argument:
"There are three theories, which we should treat equally":

1. "Surprise theory" - Bin Laden and Al Qaeda implemented the attacks.

2. "Let it happen on purpose" - The US Government knew the Al Qaeda plans and did not react in order to legitimize a series of wars.

3. "Made it happen on purpose" - The attacks were actually planned and orchestrated by the Pentagon and/or US secret services.

Ganser: "3,000 humans were sacrificed for strategic interests. The more we research, the more we doubt the Bush version. It is conceivable that the Bush government was responsible. Bush has lied so much already! And we already know that the US government planned an operation in 1962 that was approved by the Pentagon that would have sacrificed innocent US citizens for the government's own interests."

As for Ganser and Stahel: "We only ask questions."

is not in the German quote.
Yet, knowing Ganser's work pretty well I can confirm that this is "modell" as he has presented it in several discussions on Swiss television.
This guy btw is not a nobody but maybe the historian with the biggest knowledge on Operation Gladio. In fact he wrote his PhD on this and published his thesis in English which was translated in several languages.
So no reason to be paranoid and imagine dishonesty of the so called "truth movement"
