Martin Bryant with an IQ of 66 could not have killed 35 people at Port Arthur in April 1996.
Update, 29 July 2013 : Please download and freely distribute Mass Murder - Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (pdf - 718 pp, 13Mb) by Keith Noble completed on 27 July 2017. Keith was inspired by the article Was Martin Bryant the Port Arthur killer? of 3 April 2013 to write this book. - Ed, 19 May and 29 July, 2013.
On Thursday 9 May 2013, the Hobart Mercury alerted its readers to what it claimed was a "vicious international internet campaign [which accuses] two local police officers of being the real killers." Mercury reporter Zara Dawtrey, in the story Port Arthur conspiracy anger, labeled Australian expatriate Keith Noble, who now lives in Austria, a 'conspiracy theorist' :

A conspiracy theorist based in Austria, and claiming to be a former Tasmanian, is writing a book about the massacre in which he claims Bryant is the innocent victim of a killing spree planned and carried out by the government and police.
People who attempt to draw the attention of the public to glaring inconsistencies and anomalies that are often to be found official accounts of events such as the Port Arthur Massacre, have, at least since the time of President Kennedy's murder in 1963, been labelled 'conspiracy theorists'. This is use of an ad hominem attack in order to dissuade others from also considering the evidence given by the person thus labeled. Zara Dawtrey continued :
While Port Arthur conspiracies abound online, Keith Noble is making sure his views reach audiences far beyond the confines of the internet conspiracy community.
John Howard then went on to to help organise the recruitment of mercenary strikebreakers for his 1998 attempt to break the Maritime Union of Australia. In 2003 John Howard knowingly peddled the lie of Iraqi WMDs in order to justify Australia's participation in the illegal invasion of Iraq in which hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died. As Prime Minister he slashed and burned government services using former 'Labor' PM Paul Keating's supposed Budget Black Hole as a pretext. After John Howard was allowed to win the 2004 election with the help of corrupt 'Labor' state Premiers, he privatisatised Telstra in the face of overwhelming public opposition. He then attempted to destroy the working conditions of Australian workers with his infamous Work Choices legislation. Fortunately Work Choices was stopped by a successful public campaign in which the Trade Union movement participated and the Howard Government was turfed out in the 2007 federal elections, John Howard losing his own parliamentary seat of Bennelong.
Keith Noble complained of inaccuracies to Zara Dawtry in an e-mail, a copy of which is attached below, and asked why he had not been contacted prior to the publication of her story in the Mercury.
Keith Noble has, indeed, given away free draft PDF copies of chapters 5 and 10 of his book, including to me. The files have been appended here and here to my article Was Martin Bryant the Port Arthur killer? of 3 April 2010. That article, and the material linked to from that article, convinced Keith Noble that an outrageous miscarriage of justice had occurred. Martin Bryant with an IQ of 66 could not have killed 35 people on that day and that the real killer was still at large.
Keith Noble resolved himself to write a book that would reveal the evidence of Bryant's innocence. In the course of writing he has has received encouragement from witnesses who witnessed the tragic events of that day and who knew Bryant to be innocent.
Martin Bryant, now aged 46, languishing in jail for a crime for which he was never tried for and could not have committed, may soon become the 47 victim of the port Arthur Massacre.
Below is included a letter sent to Zara Dawtrey only yesterday. Any response will be published on candobetter. We will also advise you of any further reporting of this issue in the Hobart Mercury.
Update, 10:07AM, Friday, 9 May 2013: Zara Dawtrey's article has been listed as the 3rd of the 5 "most popular" articles in the Hobart Mercury. In spite of having received Keith Noble's letter of protest and in spite of the concern expressed by Mercury readers, nothing more has been published.
Appendix: Keith Noble's letter to Zara Dawtrey of 9 May 2013
9 May 2013
This morning, I checked my emails and found many concerned Tasmanians and other Australians had emailed me a copy of your article (9 May 2013) in The Mercury related to the Port Arthur incident.
Of course I have skimmed it, but have no time today to study it. But several serious errors have jumped off the page, and I of course wonder why you did not contact me for details before you published your article. You do have all my contact details as you are on the case mailing list and you are sent regular updates. It really is not investigative journalism (perhaps you are a reporter) if you ignore the context of the story in which Michael Charles Dyson is a major player.
Currently, I am extremely busy working on Part 7 of the book which deals specifially with the Port Arthur incident witnesses. A person with a conscience who works in the office of the Tasmanian DPP has provided the Witness Statements.
The content of them is staggering. It is very easy to see why the State did everything it could to prevent those witnesses from testifying during a trial. It is one of the reasons why there was NO TRIAL. All their statements were denied and innocent Martin Bryant (with his 66 IQ and abilities of a grade 6 schoolboy) was set up then incarcerated for life. As you know, he's now being murdered at Risdon Prison - slowly.
(Have you ever thought of contacting the witnesses and writing something? Not just the ones who parrot the official narrative. The ones who saw the gunman up close and who have declared that it was not Matin Bryant. The ones who state times which puts Martin nowhere near PAHS.)
Once Part 7 is completed, I will turn my attention to a rebuttal to your article. Not being one for secrets, a copy will be sent to you, and your mate Dyson, and to everyone else on the international lists. You should have that rebuttal on Monday (13th), or Tuesday (14th).
Martin was 46 on Tuesday (7th) this week. It is doubted he knew it as his mind was probably destroyed years ago in prison. Despair and drugs do that. But no doubt his dear mother did remember that day. Unknowingly, however, you have provided Martin with the best birthday gift he could possibly get - PUBLICITY!
