Views on the September 11 attacks
In September 2008, Bigard claimed that the September 11 attacks on the US seven years earlier were an "enormous lie" orchestrated by the American government. He said that he was "absolutely sure and certain" that the US government had stage-managed the attacks.
Later, in a statement to Agence France-Presse, Bigard said that he wanted to "apologise to everyone". He also said: "I will never speak again about the events of 11 September... I will never express any more doubts." He stopped short, however, of saying that he accepted that his comments were untrue.
On June 2009, Bigard posted several videos on his website in which he comments on the official account of the September 11 attacks.
On 28 October 2009, accompanied by Mathieu Kassovitz, Bigard participated on a TV show (France 2) in which he said there was no proof of Ben Laden's culpability in the attacks, neither any images (and proof) about an airplane crashing on the Pentagon.
