In a talk on European TV in 2012, the main proponents for a new investigation were:
- Prof. Dr. Friedrich Steinhäusler: An Austrian expert for physics and material science at the University of Salzburg.
- Dr. Daniele Ganser: A Swiss historian researching 9/11 at the University of Basel.
Steinhäusler coordinated NATO-SST.CLG research activities (summary, paper) on terrorist risks for nuclear plants from 2001 to 2004. He is also a member of the Permanent Monitoring Panel on Mitigation of Terrorist Acts (PMP-MTA), World Federation of Scientists. Yet, like most physicists studying the topic he proposes questions concerning the collapse of the buildings. Considering that he is not only a physicist but also a academic in material science, this could make him another important expert in the debate.
Professor Daniele Ganser is a Swiss historian who specializes in international relations and international history from 1945 to today. Daniele Ganser is well known for his PhD thesis, “NATO’s Secret Armies. Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe” which was translated into ten languages. He teaches at Basel University. See this news item.
During the whole show, the audience was clearly on the side of Ganser and Steinhäusler and the whole way the discussion was held and led was very fair. The main opponent to Ganser and Steinhäusler was the journalist Stefan Aust (former chief editor of “Der Spiegel”). He tried in the usual ways to discredit their trustworthiness, but did not succeed at all.
The station broadcasting the talk was ServusTV, a division of “Red Bull”. It is available free to air in Germany, Austria and Switzerland via antenna or cable and via satellite even europewide. This is not a small local TV station.
