For two months Wolfgang Halbig has made the rounds on alternative media outlets to explain his doubts on the official narrative of the Sandy Hook massacre. Now the apparently well-intentioned school safety expert has proceeded to establish an online presence, where he has raised over $10,000 toward achieving “Sandy Hook Justice.” An appearance before the Newtown School Board is tentatively scheduled where Mr. Halbig will publicly demonstrate his indignation toward a cover-up.
In early 2013 major and alternative news media alike were beating a path to my door. Reporters quite literally chased me around my place of employment, hoping to obtain the scoop on the “wacko” academic who might recant on his observation that the incident in Newtown was likely a big fraud. Even Anderson Cooper fussed on national television that such an individual was employed at a “taxpayer-funded” institution.
Shortly after this flurry of attention certain parties contacted me and essentially proposed that they become my handlers. The idea was that I would be the public face of a detailed independent investigation into the Sandy Hook episode. For hours they attempted to convince me that the “Sandy Hook actors” were in fact members of the “Greenberg family clan.” They subsequently produced a professional-looking report that I was to tout.
I became increasingly doubtful of the thesis and how it might prove productive. My suspicion turned to alarm when the parties suggested that vigilante justice be visited upon the alleged Sandy Hook perpetrators. Even worse, a website was developed for the investigation that came dangerously close in name and terminology to mirroring a federal law enforcement agency—calling itself the “US Intelligence Information Center” and using jargon such as “suspects” and “persons of interest.” The individual then proceeded to essentially speak for me, posting the report and my name to social media sites. It was at this time that I sent the following email and discontinued further communication:
I was unaware that you posted the report on __________ and included my name and institutional affiliation. This was done without my approval, as was the posting of Sandy Hook Massacre Timeline on the website you’ve created. I am going to have to ask that things slow down and that my attorney review any further activity by you in which you use my name in any way. I also ask that you please not use my aforementioned Timeline.
As for the name of the organization, “US Intelligence Information Center” and website http://www.sandyhookinvestigation.com/ I cannot at this time approve or lend my support. The use of the title “US Intelligence Information Center” and terms such as “Suspects” and “Persons of Interest” are tantamount to impersonating law enforcement and can likely cause a great deal of trouble for all involved.
Those in the 9/11 Truth movement are well aware of the “cognitive infiltrators” who are only too happy to harness a loose cannon or two that will sabotage or otherwise hinder the genuine remedy of collective intelligence. I am aware that at least one of the parties who misinformed me is now operating as Wofgang Halbig’s handler.
This is unfortunate because despite Halbig’s awkwardness, the overall thrust of his inquiry—legally interrogating the officials overseeing the Sandy Hook event—is a logical next step toward better understanding what took place in Newtown fifteen months ago. Yet my previous experiences indicate that such individuals will likely proceed to lead Mr. Halbig down blind or deceiving alleys that in the end will only serve to further undermine a genuine pursuit of truth.
