Singer claims Bataclan attack was inside job

The frontman of the band whose concert turned into a terrorist bloodbath in Paris has suggested the attack was an inside job, saying he was suspicious of the club’s security guards.

The Bataclan bosses angrily rejected the “senseless” claim and said that Jesse Hughes’ (see photo) allegations were made because he was traumatized.

Hughes, the singer and guitarist of Eagles of Death Metal, said he immediately felt uneasy when setting up for the November 13th show as a guard in charge of the backstage area at the Bataclan club did not make eye contact.

“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,'” Hughes said in an interview broadcast late on Wednesday with Fox Business.

“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,” Hughes said.

“Out of respect for the police still investigating, I won’t make a definite statement, but I’ll say it seems rather obvious that they had a reason not to show up.”

    It’s very possible and quite often your gut instincts are right. I hope the police investigate that angle thoroughly.

    • Me too it seemed to be accomplished with a great deal of ease.

      Unlikely, as article states he has right-leaning –wrong-thinking as far as security services are concerned– views. I mean gosh he thinks Americans should have the right to bear arms.

    I would advise caution. The mind always try to impose order onto chaos even if that order manifests itself as a lie. Living with the fact that the days are evil seems to be one hurdle many minds can not seem to process.

    • True enough but if the claim of the missing security guards is true that should at the least be followed up on.

      • Jabberwokk

        Agreed. Just don’t want to turn this into another “9/11” or “False Flag” nonsense is all.

    “Security Guard” is often code for “not smart enough to be a regular policeman”, and we all know of a very particular group of inbreds that fit that category.

    Well duh!
    Of course it was an inside job. The lefty leaders invited the savages in and let them run wild. Bribing a couple of peons is small change compared to that.
