Armed with an insatiably inquisitive mind, some good contacts and a fistful of hindsight still stinging, American investigative journalist Peter Lance has been untangling the wires since dawn on September 12th, 2001. In his books, Peter has traced the 9/11 plot backwards; peeling back layers upon layers to expose the origins of evil; and along the way he's willingly fallen down a few serious rabbit holes.
I went to see Peter address a packed auditorium at NYU's Kimmel Center on behalf of the prestigious Center for Communication last year. After the seminar, Peter had to split. I could tell he was onto something new. Off into the cold New York night to meet someone and follow a new lead. And sure enough, now I know what he was up to.
I've been a friend/fan of Peter's for some time now and he never ceases to amaze me. Truly in a league of his own, Peter has a niche for digging stuff up where no one thought to bring shovels before. He is an archaeologist of the truth. And in a newly published exclusive on his website, Lance sheds fresh light on the link between the 9/11 attacks, the February 26, 1993 WTC bombing and the assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane... some 11 years before that horrific Tuesday in 2001.
So what can the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993 teach us about the attempted (and seemingly since forgotten) car bombing of Times Square back in May? Well, Mr. Lance will tell you in the September issue of Playboy. Be sure to pick it up as it hits newsstands August 13. I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy of the article and it is truly damaging.
In the meantime, click here to read Peter's latest exclusive which links three men who were charged in the '93 WTC bombing to an infamous al Qaeda related homicide almost 20 years ago!
Pick up all of Peter's books if you haven't already. I really cannot recommend any better when it comes to this stuff.
