The 9/11 truther who made a mockery of security at the Super Bowl when he crashed a postgame news conference to state his case says his ability to get on national television was pure serendipity.
Matthew Mills, a 30-year-old independent journalist from Brooklyn, told NJ.com that he just wanted to get near MetLife Stadium
, which was one of the most secure spots in America on Sunday, so he could interview some fans. Problem was, he had no press credentials.

No matter. When he saw a bus for people working the game at Secaucus Junction, he jumped on board with a credential around his neck from a festival he once covered.
Whenever he was hassled by security because it wasn’t an official pass, “I just said I was running late for work and I had to get in there,” Mills told NJ.com. “It was that simple.”
It worked. Time and time again.
“I didn’t think that I’d get that far,” Mills said. “I just kept getting closer and closer."
He walked into the media tent after the game, and when Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith began answering questions, Mills made his move.
“Investigate 9/11. 9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government,” he said on camera.
“I just saw my opportunity to get my word out there and I took it,” Mills told NJ.com.
Mills was quickly escorted away and arrested for trespassing.
Mills received some support on Twitter for his chutzpah.

Despite the support, every independent investigation shows that the 9/11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks in which the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaida used hijacked airliners on Sept. 11, 2011, to destroy the World Trade Center in New York and crash into the Pentagon outside of Washington, D.C. Truthers claim the government was behind the attacks and used them as a ruse to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq while curtailing civil liberties and engage in unprecedented spying on Americans.
