Editorial Reviews

Review

Debunking 9/11 Myths is a reliable and rational answer to the many fanciful conspiracy theories about 9/11… What happened on 9/11 has been well established by the 9/11 Commission. What did not happen has now been clearly explained by Popular Mechanics.”--Richard A. Clarke, former national security advisor, author of Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror
 
“This book is a victory for common sense; 9/11 conspiracy theorists beware: Popular Mechanics has popped your paranoid bubble world, using pointed facts and razor-sharp analysis.” -Austin Bay, national security columnist (Creators Syndicate) and co-author of From Shield to Storm
 
“There is no time to waste. You must purchase Debunking 9/11 Myths.”--Rocky Mountain News
 
“Certainly one of the most original--and potentially controversial--titles on the topic.”--Publishers Weekly
 
“Do you have a friend who emails you the most recent documentary 'proving' that a missile impacted the Pentagon or that timed explosions brought down WTC-7? Buy him a copy of this book. He'll thank you later.”--Weekly Standard

This book is little more than propaganda based on false assumptions, and out right lies.
American Archer
This book does not refute any of the scientific theories that point to the events of 9/11 as being controlled demolitions.
Chelsea J.
Popular Mechanics failure to address these real experts and their evidence make this book pure propaganda!!!

I see now that you can get a copy of this book for $0.58, which to me constitutes a massive rip-off. PM editors have cooked up a pot of lies and straw-man arguments which can be dismantled by even a novice to legitimate 9/11 research. I truly wonder how these wh@res sleep at night.

If you have read this book or plan on reading it, you must see, "September 11th - A New Pearl Harbor." You may find that this book addresses pretty much nothing when measured by its depth or its integrity. I don't think you will see a legitimate update of this book to address, the New Pearl Harbor (which certainly doesn't shy away from addressing this nonsense), as these phonies would need to rewrite physics at that point.

I'll give it one star as that is the minimum required, and also this book is worthwhile if researching case studies of methods used to spread lies as truth.

I bought this book to see just exactly the arguments of the 9-11 conspiracy buffs were. I got the soft cover
version, not a Kindle download, because I figured there would be a lot of graphics which don't turn out well on my Kindle. I was wrong about the second point; there are some photos, but no line drawings, which I find disappointing.

What's really disappointing is the size of the book -- one can read it comfortably in an evening, and it is anything but encyclopedic. From my experience with 9-11 conspiracy people, they will simply dimiss this book as
a quicky sales job of the establishment position, and, regrettably, I think I may have to agree with them.

Format: Paperback
It's been said this book is too short and while that may be true it's not going to matter if it's a dozen pages or a veritable War and Peace on the issue. A compilation of every known fact on the matter wouldn't sway conspiracy theorists. Why?

- If someone is wed to a conspiracy theory, logic, science, and any other information that subverts their religious belief in the conspiracy will simply be discounted (as in many religions).

Any testimony or evidence that does not fit the theory is simply lumped in with the evil forces driving events and discounted. Why? because the smug superiority of "being in on the secret" is intoxicating and addictive and a clearly identified villain is comforting. In their minds, its them standing bravely against "the man," while the foolish masses go blindly about their business.

In theory it should take just one page to destroy the beliefs of a Bush/Cheney conspiracy, simply because if the rationale for their motivations is simple human greed by corporate pigs... then the corporate pigs at United and American Airlines and their insurers would have left no stone unturned in their quest to protect their stock prices and deny insurance claims that totaled over $40 billion dollars. Why would these airlines tell everyone that their planes were hijacked and crashed if ANY thing but that were the case?

I'm afraid the good folks at PM wasted their time trying to offer reason to the unreasonable. Even Noam Chomsky dismisses the whole thing as patently absurd because of the sheer numbers of people that would be involved, and this includes (thanks to debunking9/11.com)

Format: Paperback
Here is a list of 24 facts that cannot be debunked about 9/11.

1) Nano Thermite was found in the dust at Ground Zero. Peer reviewed in the Bentham Open Chemical Physics Journal. `Niels Harrit', `Thermite Bentham', "The great thermate debate" Jon Cole, `Iron rich spheres' Steven Jones, `Limited Metallurgical Examination (FEMA C-13, Appendix C-6)'. `Nano Tubes'

2) 1700+ Engineers and Architects support a real independent 9/11 investigation. Richard Gage, Founder. `Explosive Evidence', `Blueprint for Truth', `AE911′, `Toronto Hearings', `Kevin Ryan'.

3) The total collapse of WTC 7 in 6.5 seconds at free fall acceleration (NIST admits 2.25 seconds). Larry Silverstein used the term "Pull it". Steel framed high rise buildings have NEVER totally collapsed from fire or structural damage. Builidng 7 was not hit by a plane. `Building 7′, `WTC 7′.

4) Dick Cheney was in command of NORAD on 9/11 while running war games. `Stand down order'. "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary?". Norman Minetta testimony. "Gave order to shootdown Flight 93.", `NORAD Drills'.

5) 6 out of the 10 Commissioners believe the 9/11 Commission report was "Setup to fail" Co-Chairs Hamilton and Kean, "It was a 30 year conspiracy", "The whitehouse has played cover up", `Max Cleland resigned', `John Farmer'.

6) FBI confiscated 84/85 Videos from the Pentagon. `Moussaoui trial' revealed these videos. Released Pentagon Security Camera (FOIA) does not show a 757 and is clearly Missing a frame. `Sheraton Hotel', "Double tree', `Citgo".

7) Osama Bin Laden was NOT wanted by the FBI for the 9/11 attacks. "No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11." CIA created, trained and funded "Al Qaeda/Taliban" during the Mujahideen.
