About the Author

A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Mr. Marrs earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from the University of North Texas in 1966 and attended Graduate School at Texas Tech in Lubbock for two years more. He has worked for several Texas newspapers, including the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, where beginning in 1968 he served as police reporter and general assignments reporter covering stories locally, in Europe and the Middle East. After a leave of absence to serve with a Fourth Army intelligence unit during the Vietnam War, he became military and aerospace writer for the newspaper and an investigative reporter. Since 1980, Mr. Marrs has been a free-lance writer, author and public relations consultant. He also published a rural weekly newspaper along with a monthly tourism tabloid, a cable television show and several videos.

Since 1976, Mr. Marrs has taught a course on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy at the University of Texas at Arlington. In 1989, his book, Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, was published to critical acclaim and reached the New York Times Paperback Non-Fiction Best Seller list in mid-February 1992. It became a basis for the Oliver Stone film JFK. Mr. Marrs served as a chief consultant for both the film's screenplay and production.

Beginning in 1992, Mr. Marrs spent three years researching and completing a non-fiction book on a top-secret government program involving the psychic phenomenon known as remote viewing only to have it mysteriously canceled as it was going to press in the summer of 1995. Within two months, the story of military-developed remote viewing broke nationally in the Washington Post after the CIA held a press conference revealing the program but putting their own spin on psychic studies.

In May, 1997, Marrs' in-depth investigation of UFOs, Alien Agenda, was published by HarperCollins Publishers. Mr. Marrs has been a featured speaker at a number of national conferences including the Annual International UFO Congress and the Annual Gulf Breeze UFO Conference. Publisher's Weekly described Alien Agenda as "the most entertaining and complete overview of flying saucers and their crew in years." The paperback edition was released in mid-1998 and has since become the best-selling UFO book ever in the United States. Beginning in 2000, he began teaching a course on UFOs at the University of Texas at Arlington.

In early 2000, HarperCollins published Rule by Secrecy, which traced the hidden history that connects modern secret societies to the Ancient Mysteries. In 2003, his book The War on Freedom probed the conspiracies of the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath.

An award-winning journalist, Mr. Marrs is listed both in Who's Who in the World and Who's Who in America. Mr. Marrs has won several writing and photography awards including the Aviation/Aerospace Writer's Association's National Writing Award and Newsmaker of the Year Award from the Fort Worth Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. In 1993, Mr. Marrs received Freedom Magazine's Human Rights Leadership Award.

Mr. Marrs has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, CSPAN, the Discovery, Learning and History Channels, This Morning America, Geraldo, Montell Williams, Today, Tech TV and The Larry King and Art Bell radio programs along with numerous national and regional radio and TV shows. He is a former president of the Press Club of Fort Worth and a current member of the Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi, and the Investigative Reporters and Editors.

I have read Richard Clarke's "Against all Enemies" (highly recommended) and urge readers to purchase that book.

The government released information about the terrorists who were supposedly flying the planes, but it later was found that some of them were not even on the planes.
Theresa Welsh
In the meantime every documentary of the official version I have seen is only reinforcing what the alterantive media is already saying that 9-11 was a INSIDE JOB!

Mr. Marrs has done it again. An exceptional examination of the various parties involved in 9/11.

Whether you believe that the government was complicit in 9/11 or not, the facts speak for themselves:

* NORAD failed our nation multiple times, NORAD lied about how quickly fighters were deployed.

* The Pentagon does not appear to have been hit by a boeing airliner (and if it was, why won't the FBI release the videos they have? They made us watch the towers over and over again, ad infinitum). If the plane never struck the Pentagon, what happened to it and all the people on it?

* Silverstein, the owner of the World Trade complex, admitted on video to having 'pulled' (construction term for demolished) building 7. He made millions off of the insurance money for the towers. Why has he not been investigated? Who does he know?

* Firefighters repeatedly reporting hearing bombs explode in the towers. Local university seismographs depict seismic activities corresponding with proposed explosion times prior to the towers collapsing much too perfectly.

* Rumsfeld has since slipped on 2 occassions indicating that flight 93 was actually shot down.

* Marvin Bush, the youngest Bush child, was the security head for the World Trade Centers but left his post on September 8th. Why? What did he know? Just another one of the numerous coincidences surrounding the characters involved here. Why no mainstream media coverage of this?

* The quick FEMA clean up of the rubble and dispursemnt to China against the NYC Fire Department's chief's pleas to allow fire experts to examine it. (Why, what is FEMA hiding?)

* 4 non-Arabs arrested at the George Washington bridge morning of 9/11 with explosives.

Format: Paperback
Jim Marrs is a veteran journalist who isn't afraid to examine topics that are suppressed by institutions of power. In this book, Jim joins the growing number of authors who have challenged the official tale of the events of September 11, 2001, making the case that the evidence points to the attacks being an inside job. The motives, methods, and plans are all presented for the reader, incriminating those in power in the USA. Nearly 3 years after the attacks, Jim Marrs has collected much information [most of which can be quickly found on the Internet on websites of the many independent researchers of 9-11 and related shadowy activities]. One would have to create a very bizarre and improbable conspiracy theory to attempt to deny the main assertion Marrs presents in this book. Jim Marrs deserves credit for collecting the available research and presenting it coherently for the public to examine. Marrs book has garnered the praise of persons such as John "Men Are From Mars" Gray and Catherine Austin Fitts, the whistleblower who has been a victim of those who she once served as assistant housing secretary in the Bush Sr. Administration. Hopefully, more public figures will soon begin to acknowledge the criminal nature of our leaders and encourage the public to reclaim control over the country from the existing power structure. Until then, enjoy books like this one and let the mainstream media folks know that they are merely acting as press-titutes when they spout "official" tales rather than reporting what really happened.

Format: Paperback
When the Constitutional Convention concluded in 1787, it is reported that Benjamin Franklin was asked what sort of government the Founding Fathers had crafted, and Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it." Turns out we couldn't! Most Americans are unaware of the fact that their country has degenerated into an oligarchy.

I remember watching a live TV news broadcast of the September 11th event when a retired Air Force officer called in to the station and asked how it could be that nearly an hour after the first hijacked plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center, the skies over Washington D.C. still had NOT been secured, thus making the Flight 77 attack on the Pentagon possible. "It starts already," I thought to myself. What had started already? The suspicion; the weird anomalies; the missing puzzle pieces; the unexpected behavior and the odd lack of expected responses to an emergency of this kind. In short, signs of The Conspiracy manifested early on and were evident to the rare citizen with unusual political acuity.

Few citizens realize that Insider complicity is not only imaginable, but to be expected. It's not like we've broken new ground here! The sinking of the Lusitania which helped to embroil U.S. citizens in the unpopular World War I and the bombing of Pearl Harbor, forcing them into the equally unpopular World War II served as the template for September 11th and its subsequent "War On Terror" in the Middle East. It's deja vu all over again (quoting that immortal yogi, Berra.)

'INSIDE JOB' brings together so many of the unaswered questions surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and presents them in a very sensible and earnest manner.
