Eagles of Death Metal lead singer Jesse Hughes has publicly apologized for his recent comments regarding the November 13th 2015 terror attack at the Bataclan night club during which he and his band were unfortunate enough to be performing. The night club, which was sold to new owners on September 11th 2015, was the location of France’s largest terror attack in their history. Last week Hughes made the implication that the event was some manner of staged false flag attack, and retracted and apologized for the comments almost immediately after the corporate media began spamming the news world with the story. The controversial comments were made during an interview with the Fox Business Network:
“When I first got to the venue and walked in, I walked past the dude who was supposed to be the security guard for the backstage. He didn’t even look at me. … I didn’t like him at all, and so I immediately went to the promoter and said, ‘Who’s that guy? I want to put another dude on,’ and he goes, ‘well some of the other guards aren’t here yet,’ and eventually I found out that six or so wouldn’t show up at all”
What appears to be a remarkably rational observation about a startling number of unexpected absences was promptly latched upon as an excuse to vilify the singer, who appears to have done nothing more than suggest that “six or so” security personnel staying home sick before a terror attack might possibly be a point of interest for those presumably interested in solving these crimes. Rather than being treated as a critical eyewitness account which could help shed light on the criminal case (which it is, after all), the observation seems to have barely attracted the attention of law enforcement, and has been treated by establishment media outlets as merely a tasteless comment rather than a telling revelation. Hughes promptly and humbly apologized to the world for his statements:
“I humbly beg forgiveness from the people of France, the staff and security of the Bataclan, my fans, family, friends and anyone else hurt or offended by the absurd accusations I made.”
Sadly, Hughes’ comments fit a disturbing pattern of strange absences that has been observed preceding a shocking number of terror events. From FBI agents calling in sick during the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing to the unbelievable number of people who had tickets for the 9/11 flights but decided not to show up (over 350 in total, including Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane and actor Mark Wahlberg). In fact, his observations of strange/contradictory behavior aren’t even unique in the case of the Bataclan terror attack, with other eyewitnesses claiming the shooters appeared to be “clean shaven white men,” in a Mercedes, rather than what one might typically expect from Islamic jihadists.
