The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortionsby David Ray Griffin
Pub. Date: 03/28/2005
Publisher: Interlink Publishing Group, Incorporated
Griffin (emeritus, philosophy of religion and theology), the author of The New Pearl Harbor, provocatively argues that the 9/11 Commission supported an officially sanctioned conspiracy theory while ignoring alternative explanations. E.g., he contends that video evidence of the attack on the Pentagon is lacking, and that Commission members had conflicts of interest due to ties to the FBI and Department of Justice.

I admired Mr. Griffin's courage when I read his recent book 'The New Pearl Harbor' and I became a fan of his. His new book 'The 9/11 Commission Report Omissions and Distortions' is thorough, well argued, and factual, and was even reviewed by a bunch of outstanding cast. I am not surprised that this genre of books is allowed to be published these days, because black outs are much stronger than blatant censorship. Black outs by the corporate media maintain the illusion of freedom of speech, and at the same time ensures that only few people read these books. Black outs negate the book and the author and indirectly classifies him or her in the leftist, unpatriotic, conspiracy nut categories. Questioning authority figures has become unnatural for us, it goes against our political socialization training and creates in us discomfort and dissonance. However, Denial is a much more effective coping mechanism for our pathological survival. If you deny it, it doesn't exist, and everyone will live happily ever after. I would also like to applaud Mr. Falk, the distinguished professor from the Council on Foreign relations that has once again reviewed Mr. Griffin's new book, and has the courage to go against his buddies and fellows from the CFR that headed the 9/11 commission like Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean. The problem I have is that it is hard for me to believe what the CFR talking heads stand for, because they tend to argue both sides of the issue to confuse and befuddle people, and give them the impression that democracy is at work, while the synthesis/solution has already been decided by them. Anyway, and once again Kudos to Mr. Griffin!! Another great book and another black out by the corporate media! Professor Griffin keep writing and sending your ethical thoughts and decent vibrations into the universe, maybe and only maybe the universe will respond back............... ________________________________________
The '911 Report: Omssions and Distortions' is an amazing book that every person (especially Americans) should read. It makes perfect sense and open eyes for those who want to learn and find out what happen in 9/11. Of course, the corporate media, the current administration (including Congress and Senate) and their followers are against it.
When someone with Professor Griffin¿s credentials devotes attention to a topic such as this, one ought to read what he has to say. He makes an excellent case for his theories.
First off all, this man is a genius. He isn't afraid of speaking out the truth, which is being covered up by American Intelligence. All the facst are there! Right in his book, my views have changed dramitically and this man hold the truth, please read this and tehn ask yourself, 'Is this possible?' I'm sure you will answer 'YES'
