    Bio: Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law and practice at Princeton University, is the United Nations Human Rights Rapporteur in the Occupied Territories and a member of the Nation editorial board. He is the author of many books, including The Costs of War: International Law, the UN, and World Order After Iraq.---The Nation I found Richard Falk's articles to be extremely informative and insightful. I have not read the present article in question---I intend to do so. But I have to say that UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon's reprimand two years ago re: Falk's comment that the U.S. was an actor in 9/11 did not take into consideration the work of scientists around the globe who have raised serious questions regarding the U.S. 9/11 Commission Report as well as the NIST (National Institute of Science and Technology) explanation as to the causes of the WTC's total destruction. The organization, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth have accumulated all the necessary data to conclude that the WTC was totally destroyed not by the destruction caused by the planes, but rather by explosives of a military composition (nanothermite). Demolition experts have also testified that the buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition So Falk was not off base in raising questions about U.S. involvement in the destruction of the WTC on 9/11.
