Eagles Of Death Metal Member Suggests Paris Terror Attack Was An Inside Job

Eagles of Death Metal were the band that were performing at the Bataclan during the lethal Paris terror attacks in November. The band’s frontman has come forward with new details about ill-fated night and has even suggested that the bloody siege on the concert hall may have been an inside job.

In an interview with Kennedy on the Fox Business Network, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes said that there was some peculiar things that happened the night of November 13, 2015, where 89 concertgoers were killed.

When Hughes was asked if anything had seemed unusual when he arrived at the venue that evening he revealed some surprising details, and said he quickly sensed that something wasn’t quite right.

“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 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.”

Hughes also stated that he noticed a couple of concertgoers at the Bataclan who didn’t look like regular Eagles of Death Metal fans. “Right before we walked onstage, there were two dudes in shorts and trench coats, [who] were standing, without talking, heads down in the corner, by where the entrance out into the venue is from backstage,” he said. “We have a joke that if you’re not smiling at one of our shows, you surely can’t be there to see the Eagles of Death Metal, because you don’t know what you’re in for. Shawn [London, the group’s sound engineer] looked at me and said, ‘They certainly don’t look like they’re here for one of our shows.’”

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

The owners of the Bataclan have reacted angrily to the suggestion that their security guards knew of the massacre and purposely did not show up to allow all of those innocent people be slaughtered.

“Jesse Hughes spread some very grave and defamatory accusations against the Bataclan teams. A judicial investigation is undergoing. We wish to let justice proceed serenely. All the testimonies gathered to this day demonstrate the professionalism and courage of the security agents who were on the ground on 13 November. Hundreds of people were saved thanks to [their] intervention.”

This is not the first time Hughes has made controversial statements regarding the Paris attacks. In February, during an interview with the French TV station iTélé he talked about France’s restrictive gun control laws.

“Did your French gun control stop a single fucking person from dying at the Bataclan? And if anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so. I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men I’ve ever seen in my life charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms.

I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal. And I hate it that it’s that way. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.

Because I’ve never seen anyone that’s had one dead, and I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know.
