Robert Baer is a former CIA case officer who is sometimes claimed to support the idea that "9/11 was an inside job". However, the source quotes, like "'the evidence points at' 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job" (source) seem a little vague. What does that mean, exactly?
When we look elsewhere for clues, we find Baer frequently expressing a belief that there was significant Saudi involvement in 9/11 that's not been made public:
(We've just snipped a little of this, but Baer has much more to say. Please read the whole piece.)
However, Baer has also clearly said that al Qaeda were behind the attacks. Here's a Time article from October 2007, for instance:
And in December 2007 Baer told us that he didn't believe the WTC "was brought down by our own explosives, or that a rocket, rather than an airliner, hit the Pentagon. I spent a career in the CIA trying to orchestrate plots, wasn't all that good at it, and certainly couldn't carry off 9/11. Nor could the real pros I had the pleasure to work with":
When Baer says that "'the evidence points at' 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job", then, he's clearly not going along with all the theories usually associated with that position. Be wary of sites or individuals who use his name to support their case, unless and until they can produce a more definitive statement from Baer that details exactly what he means.
