9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed

David Ray Griffin. Interlink/Olive Branch, $18 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-56656-868-5
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.)
