Overview

Was the now widely unpopular war in Afghanistan ever justified? Why do many otherwise fact-driven journalist still endorse the official account of 9/11, despite the scientific improbability of several important details? Were some of the phone calls that reportedly came from the hijacked airliners faked? Have American Christians been largely blinded to the truth about 9/11 by accepting a nationalist version of faith?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The official government story about the attacks of 9/11—that 19 Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked four planes and flew them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, causing the deaths of nearly 3,000 people—has been accepted by the American masses for 10 years and used as the pretext for wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Griffin (The New Pearl Harbor), who has written numerous books on 9/11, systematically challenges each aspect of the government's case. He provides chilling evidence to support his claims, and points to large organizations of professionals who doubt the official story. Griffin claims that 9/11 was a "false flag" attack perpetrated by the Bush administration to incite Americans into combat in the Middle East and allow a number of personal freedoms to be sacrificed to the government in the form of the Patriot Act. While "truthers" (disbelievers in the government story) have been dismissed as cranks and conspiracy theorists, Griffin presents a brilliantly assembled, plausible case, full of scientific accuracies and meticulous citations. While undoubtedly repetitive, Griffin's calm approach will lead all readers to think more skeptically about the official story. (Sept.)

This is a great book to the extent that it really covers the various angles and perspectives of each of the 9/11 events. The 'data' and the 'misinformation" are laid out for all to examine. I have personally integrated the possibility and probability of 9/11 being an inside job for some years now. It was hard at first. Its hard to allow our minds to even go there. Its much easier now, but the level of detail in this book was difficult to emotionally take in. I am reading it in stages to process the new information and perspectives that I had not previously been exposed to. This and other related books are a must read for all civilized human beings. Its devastating to take in, but to be ignorant is much worse.

"It is impossible to see, apart from revealing the truth about 9-11, how American political life could ever again become more than a hollow shell of democracy." This statement by David Ray Griffin basically sums it all up. 9-11 Truth really is that important. And yet we live in a bizarre Twilight Zone world where the media absolutely refuses to question the official story, even though the official story is ridiculous. This book covers a lot of ground, and it's hard for me to keep my review short, but basically I'll say that it's an excellent book in which Griffin uses his typical cool and calm logic to destroy the official 9-11 story. My two favorite chapters are chapter two and chapter eight. In chapter two Griffin does a brilliant job of turning the tables on the supporters of the official story. He demonstrates how these people, who often accuse truthers of being irrational and unscientific, are in fact the ones who are irrational and unscientific. Chapter eight is a fascinating discussion of things like nationalist faith, conspiracy theory, psychology, and censorship. Indeed, nationalist faith, which is described as a blinding faith in American goodness, is a major reason why many Americans won't even look at the evidence which proves that the official story is a big lie. And speaking of conspiracy theory, one of my favorite quotes in the book describes the modern "Orwellian redefinition" of the term: "A conspiracy theory no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government's explanation." Another important thing discussed in this book is the "professionalization" of the 9-11 Truth Movement. We now have groups such as Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, Pilots for 9-11 Truth, Firefighters for 9-11 Truth, Scientists for 9-11 Truth, Military Officers for 9-11 Truth, Intelligence Officers for 9-11 Truth, and Veterans for 9-11 Truth. The combined membership of all these groups numbers in the thousands. Many of the members are experts in their fields, have several years of experience, and have very impressive credentials. Of course the media ignores these people and pretends that these professional groups don't exist. People who research 9-11 have to be careful these days because there is a ton of disinfo out there. Many 9-11 Truth websites, including some of the most popular ones, are "controlled opposition" whose purpose is not to expose the truth but rather to contain it. In my opinion, if you read the 9-11 books by David Ray Griffin, along with the two 9-11 books by Christopher Bollyn, you will have a good idea of what happened on 9-11 and who was behind it.
