October 2006
Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela 
and 167 members of the National Assembly of Venezuela 
call for a 9/11 investigation
Venezuela's legislative National Assembly passed resolution in mid-October of 2006 describing the 9/11 attacks
as "self-inflicted". The resolution, which appeared in the official government gazette in mid-October of 2006, 
primarily criticized Washington's decision to build a wall along the Mexican border to keep illegal immigrants out.

In its fourth paragraph, it called on the U.S. Congress to "demand that the government of President Bush 
explain the self-inflicted attack on the World Trade Center and its victims, the supposed aircraft 
that crashed into the Pentagon and the links between the bin Laden family and the Bush family.''

The resolution, which was drafted by Carlos Escarrá, deputy chairman Foreign Affairs Commission, 
was passed unanimously by the 167-member assembly.



Chavez says U.S. may have orchestrated 9/11
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sept. 12, 2006 said that it’s plausible that the U.S. government was
 involved in the Sept. 11 attacks.

Chavez did not specifically accuse the U.S. government of having a hand in the Sept. 11 attacks, but rather 
suggested that theories of U.S. involvement bear examination.

The Venezuelan leader, an outspoken critic of U.S. President George W. Bush, was reacting to a television report
 investigating a theory the Twin Towers were brought down with explosives after hijacked airplanes crashed into
 them in 2001.
