EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Reuters) - A man who interrupted a Super Bowl news conference on Sunday with Most Valuable Player Malcom Smith to shout a conspiracy theory about the September 11, 2001, attacks was arrested and charged, a New Jersey State Police spokesman said.

The man, who grabbed a microphone and yelled "investigate 9/11 ... 9/11 was perpetrated by people in our own government," was charged with trespass and released, said Trooper Jeff Flynn.

Police did not immediately release his identity.

A total of 10 arrests were reported around the game in East Rutherford, New Jersey, all for minor matters, Flynn said.

You mean there are still people who are not 9/11 Truthers? 9/11 was perpetrated to get us into Iraq, and to shred our Constitutional rights exactly as has been happening. For a great overview see the free 90 minute documentary by 2,000 Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth called “Explosive Evidence,” here:

Also go the the site US Military Officers for 9/11 Truth:

The days of dismissing the truth of what happened with a little mockery and “tin foil” jokes are over. People are waking up. And they are going to be mad.
