Christopher Bollyn was born in Chicago and grew up during the 1960's in suburban Schaumburg, Illinois. He was raised in an educated middle class family. He delivered newspapers before school and became an Eagle Scout at age 15. He served as an altar boy in the Episcopalian Church and earned the God and Country award.
His father, Albert, grew up in Chicago's Austin neighborhood and graduated with a degree in journalism from University of Illinois after serving the Army Corps of Engineers in Germany. Christopher's father was his first proofreader and editor. Albert Bollyn owned an interior decoration business and enjoyed acting in the theatre guild.
The Bollyn family is related to Sir Thomas Boleyn, the father of Queen Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth I.
His mother, Charlotte, grew up in southwestern North Dakota, the daughter of Scandinavian and Swiss homesteaders. Charlotte was an educator and interior designer who held advanced degrees from Columbia University. When she studied in New York, Charlotte worked as governess for the Farish family and took care of the young William S. Farish III, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom and friend of the Bush family.
Christopher's parents both served in World War II.
After graduating from high school, Christopher traveled extensively in Europe and the Middle East. For several winters he lived and studied in Oslo, Norway. In spring he would cycle across Europe and the Near East. In Norway, he lived with an erudite Swedish countess and studied Middle Eastern history and Semitic languages at the University of Oslo.
Christopher returned to the United States in the late 1970s and began studies at the University of California at Davis. He has a degree in history from U.C. Santa Cruz. His emphasis was on Palestine/Israel. His last year of university was spent in Norway, Greece, and the newly liberated Baltic States where he researched the psychological effects of the Soviet occupation on the native population.
Christopher met his wife, Helje, in Oslo. Helje is a Swedish citizen who was born and educated in Estonia. She has a degree in English Language and Literature from Tallinn University. They were married in the Chapel of Kalmar Castle, Sweden. After the birth of their second child, Christopher and Helje wrote a book ABC Zoo and dedicated it to the children who love to read.
Why Solving 9-11 is Our Most Urgent Task
December 11, 2014
Christopher Bollyn speaking to the Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11
Los Angeles, October 2004
What none of us (myself included) wish to accept is that the unsolved assassination is a symptom of something wrong today, not just in 1963, in the heart of the society in which we live. … Official investigations of the Kennedy assassination have failed, not because the case is inherently insoluble, but because both the case and the investigations have been governed by deeper political processes, which have not yet been discerned. These forces are still with us, and they are not benign.
- Peter Dale Scott, Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (1993)
I was recently asked why I persevere in my efforts to speak about the truth about what happened on 9-11 to the public. This is a good question that deserves a logical and sensible answer, which is what I will try to provide here.
Most Americans would readily agree that our nation seems to have lost its way and that the political leadership is not serving the best interests of the people or the republic.
So, what’s wrong with our country? If we want to rectify the problems and restore the integrity of our nation we need to have a very clear understanding of precisely what ails it.
One sure way to get a grasp of our political predicament is to logically analyze what the political leadership has done – and what it has failed to do – about the terror atrocity of 9-11.
Since September 11, 2001, four successive administrations and fourteen Sessions of Congress have utterly failed to conduct a proper criminal investigation of 9-11, a criminal atrocity that profoundly affected the course of the nation. Rather than investigate the mass murder of 3,000 people on 9-11, successive U.S. administrations have engaged in a criminal deception, using lies to take us into foreign wars while imposing police state measures at home.
The government’s egregious failure to conduct a proper criminal investigation into the events of 9-11 is exactly like the failure by the newly-installed president, Lyndon B. Johnson, to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. In both cases, rather than conducting proper criminal investigations, the government appointed commissions that produced seriously flawed reports that were simply meant to support the official, but false, version of events.
So, let’s look at this logically. A government that willfully covers up the truth about an atrocity like 9-11 is clearly not serving the people or the republic. By failing to investigate the crime, the government (and the controlled media that supports it) is actually protecting the culprits of 9-11, which means that our government and media are serving the very people who carried out the false-flag terrorism that hijacked our nation.
As Peter Dale Scott described the people who obstructed the investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy: “These forces are still with us, and they are not benign.”
Scott is absolutely right about the nature of these “deeper political” forces. The people who are behind the 9-11 cover-up and deception are certainly “not benign.” They are rather like a malignant cancer that has afflicted our American political system. Because America is a leading nation, its seriously diseased state affects the welfare of the whole world.
This is the simple logic that explains why solving 9-11 and exposing those behind the crime and the cover-up is absolutely essential to our personal and national well-being. It is, in fact, our most urgent task because it is the only way we can save our republic - and our sanity.
The Solving 9-11 books reveal the true culprits behind the false-flag terrorism of 9-11, knowledge which empowers us by freeing us from their evil deception. Understanding the nature of the deception is the real cure for pessimism and negativism because it enables us to grasp the essence of the problem we face as a nation.
This is why I persevere in my efforts to spread the truth about what happened on 9-11. Your support is essential in this important endeavor - and greatly appreciated.

The Solving 9-11 Tour Goes On

The “Solving 9-11 Ends the War” tour was a great success. In February, I spoke at fourteen events from Austin and Seguin, deep in the heart of Texas, to Dallas, St. Louis, Kansas City, and central Iowa. The last leg of the tour was in central California, from Oakland and the Monterey Bay up to Santa Rosa with the final stop in Visalia – in the shadow of the giant Sequoias.
Walking among giants.

I met new people every place I went, starting with the person who arranged the venue and organized the event. Videos were made of every event and these have already been viewed by tens of thousands of people. The 58-minute video of the event in Santa Rosa, for example, has more than one thousand new viewers per day.

Besides giving presentations, I also made important new connections. One supporter, for example, arranged an interview just before Christmas with a high-level person with the Nation of Islam. I was, therefore, very pleased to see Rev. Louis Farrakhan mention my name and research in a lecture he gave on March 1 in Chicago. Farrakhan is the first high-profile religious leader to address the evidence of Israeli involvement in the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11.

On February 22, I held a one-man protest for 9-11 truth at the Oscars in Hollywood with signs that read “9-11 Truth Ends the War” and “Solving 9-11 Ends the War” in front of the VIP limousines waiting to pass through the security check outside the theatre. The Hollywood moguls may want to ignore 9-11 truth but they will not be able to do so for much longer; the truth is coming out all over.
You can run but you can't hide - the truth of 9-11 is out of the bag.

On the final day of the tour, March 10, I did a studio interview in Beverly Hills with Sean Stone, the son of Oliver Stone, for his “Buzzsaw” program. Sean Stone’s interview and Farrakhan’s speech have opened the door to 9-11 truth for whole new segments of the public. All in all, the success of my winter tour greatly exceeded my expectations, with many thanks to my friends and supporters of 9-11 truth.
