Daniele Ganser is a
Swiss Historian who is specialized in international
politics after 1945.
He is the director of the Swiss Institute for Peace
and Energy Research (SIPER) in Basel, Switzerland.
In this talk which he gave to a group of business
people on November 6th, 2017 in Cologne, Germany, he
asks the question whether the so called "war on
terror" is in reality a fight for oil and gas.
In the beginning of the talk Daniele Ganser explains
that as a human family we today consume 96 million
barrels of oil every day, that’s 47 supertankers.
He explains the cheap oil in the Middle East is in
muslim countries while oil sand from Canada or
Deepwater oil from the Gulf of Mexico have higher
Daniele Ganser shows, that the government of
Mossadegh in Iran has nationalized its oil but
thereafter was overthrown in 1953 by the British
secret service MI6 and the US secret service CIA.
With the example of the Golf of Tonkin incident
which started the Vietnam War in 1964 Ganser
underlines the fact that wars were often started
This was also the case when US President
together with British Prime Minister Tony Blair
attacked Iraq in 2003 and claimed falsely that Iraq
had weapons of mass destruction.
The talk recalls also secret warfare of the French
secret service DGSE, who destroyed the Greenpeace
ship Rainbow Warrior in 1985 with bombs.
In the part on the terrorist attacks of 11th
September 2001 the talk of historian Daniele Ganser
the collapse of WTC7,
the third tower which was not hit by a plane.
NIST report of 2008
claims the building came down due to fire, other
experts have argued that WTC7 has been brought down
with controlled demolition.
Ganser leaves it to his audience to make up its mind
whether fire or controlled demolition destroyed WTC7
