9/11: Never Forget Project Contested on U of M Diag

Brayboy claimed that the story of the 9/11 terror attacks was a “complete and total pack of lies.”

This past Sunday, America stood together to remember the lives lost in the greatest terror attack on the nation’s soil in history.  On September 11, 2001, 2,977 Americans perished as several planes were hijacked and crashed into the twin towers, the Pentagon, and an unsuccessful hijacking that crashed in Pennsylvania.  This year was the fifteenth anniversary of these horrendous attacks.  For the past few years, the Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Michigan have placed 2,977 flags on the Diag as part of the Young America’s Foundation 9/11: Never Forget Project.

In addition to the memorial, Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Michigan holds an informational table on the Diag for people to learn about the organization the the 9/11: Never Forget Project.  This past Sunday, Young Americans for Freedom chapter chair, Grant Strobl, was approached and harassed by a man who identified himself as Larry Brayboy.  Brayboy claimed that the story of the 9/11 terror attacks was a “complete and total pack of lies.”

He asserted that 9-11 was a conspiracy involving U.S. intelligence agencies, President George W. Bush, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the military industrial complex aimed at benefitting the “Zionist world order.”

Brayboy even brought photographic evidence (Internet printouts) that the twin towers were brought down by a “fifth generation nuclear weapon.”

The initial confrontation ended with Brayboy calling Strobl a “useful idiot” and rejecting offers of prayers, telling the chapter chair he should pray for his own “sorry ass.”
