Publishers Weekly

Griffin (The New Pearl Harbor), a 9/11 "truth advocate," continues to explore the internal inconsistencies in the official version of the events of September 11, plumbing statements by the Bush administration for contradictions. Did President Bush race home from Florida immediately after hearing of the attacks? Yes, maintain officials. No, claim Griffin's sources; Bush dawdled for half an hour before making an unhurried drive to the airport. Most chapters concern matters of similarly modest importance, but readers will receive a few jolts. Could America have foreseen 9/11? Absolutely not, Bush spokesmen repeat—but Griffin quotes officials, security experts and military leaders who warned of terrorists commandeering planes. Was bin Laden responsible? Readers will be surprised by Griffin's finding that conclusive evidence is still pending; U.S. officials submit that bin Laden's prior orchestration of attacks is proof enough, but today bin Laden is on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list for directing several terrorist attacks—but not for 9/11. Although readers might be wont to dismiss this book as pure conspiracy theory, it succeeds as a searing and close reading of the events of September 11. (June)

    David Ray Griffin¿s 9/11 Contradictions truly is a fine effort--even better, I think, than any of his other notable publications. This is no rehash it presents very current and cumulative arguments. For anyone looking for more and better evidence about 9/11, this book provides them in abundance. The attentive reader can see how instant media mythologizing works, and hopefully apply that critical vision to other situations. The new testimonials on World Trade Center Building 7 are especially telling, and the sourcing to both hard copy and websites is both useful and persuasive. The fact that Griffin¿s scholarship, which has always been always superb, was double checked by a professional librarian also enhances credibility. As someone trained in Classical and modern rhetoric, I particularly admired Griffin¿s control of style, tone, and purpose, constantly informed by attention to its the readers never pandering to them. Rather than presuming to have all the answers, Griffin emphasizes unanswered questions. He stays right on track there¿s no chasing of butterflies, however exotic, that flit besides the trail. I¿d like to imagine that other 9/11 activists/presenters would watch their language as carefully.  Long a highly respected Process Theologian and now the premier expert on 9/11, Dr. Griffin has written over thirty books. 9/11 Contradictions is most timely, and certainly one of his very best.
