Sebastian Bach, September 11th Conspiracy Theorist
The subject came up during a recent conversation Bach sat for with Loud, prompted when his interviewer noted that the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks took place two days before their talk. Asked for his opinion regarding the ever-robust number of conspiracy theories surrounding the attacks, Bach suggested that — contrary to the accepted version of events — a plane did not crash into the Pentagon.
"There’s no plane," Bach insisted. "I wrote in my book what I did on that day. I was driving my car as far away from New York as possible, because I live in New Jersey so I was trying to get as far away as possible, and I was listening to the radio in the car the whole time, and I heard them say, ‘We have just heard that the U.S. Government has just shot down a plane that was headed for the White House.’ The newscaster said that, but I only heard that once."
The idea that the damage sustained by the Pentagon on Sept. 11 was caused by something other than a plane — and supposedly staged by the U.S. government — isn't new, and there's no shortage of evidence debunking the theory. As far as Bach is concerned, however, it looks like there may have been something more going on behind the scenes.
"I don’t know if there’s a conspiracy," he admitted. "But I heard them they say that, while I was driving, myself. There’s all sorts conspiracy theories, but that was weird, that the newscaster said that."
