Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Soft Skull Press founder and 9/11 Commission Report critic Hicks argues for a "high degree of 9/11 foreknowledge on the part of the military/ intelligence complex" in this exhortation to disbelieve the Bush administration's "web of lies." The book marshals a bewildering array of sources and testimony—all filtered through Hicks's outraged sensibility—in an effort to implicate the U.S. government in the 9/11 attacks. Hicks identifies a compromised relationship between the CIA, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, which, he asserts, has ties to al-Qaeda—thus the U.S. link to 9/11 and the government's relentless efforts to keep it concealed. Hicks relies on the research and testimony of numerous "rejected, truthful freelance mavericks," including Randy Glass, a jewelry con man and FBI informant who says he caught wind of threats to the World Trade Center in 1999; Daniel Hopsicker, an investigative journalist who argues that Mohammed Atta was a double agent; and Delmart Vreeland, a con man who claims he was a U.S. intelligence operative discredited for his 9/11 foreknowledge. Shocking exposé or gonzo conspiracy theory? This screed's credibility will depend on its readers' politics. (Sept.)

I never bought the weapons-of-mass-destruction-so-let's-invade-Iraq story, and I never saw a connection between 9/11 and Iraq. Obviously, according to the media and all the brainpower in Washington, I must have missed something. On the other hand, with the US body count close to 2,000, Iraq on the brink of civil war, and no WMD anywhere, perhaps I didn't.

The destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre on 9/11 was a horrible, evil thing. I watched it--along with millions of other people--and wondered how could human beings do such a thing. Afterwards, I asked the question that occurred to everyone--how on earth did these people--these terrorists--slip by all the intelligence networks? If you had asked me then if I thought that this was an event that was ALLOWED to happen--I would have yawned and walked away--silently thinking that I was in the presence of one of the 'nut-fringe.' Well here it is four years later, and I've just finished reading "The Big Wedding: 9/11, The Whistleblowers, & The Cover-Up" by Sander Hicks. I read this book for 2 reasons: 1) I watched the excellent documentary "Horns and Halos", and found the kamikaze methods of publisher/journalist Hicks courageous, unusual and intriguing, and 2) I have some serious doubts about the event known as 9/11.

Given the nature, the scope and the audacity of the World Trade Center attack, it would be surprising if there were NO rumours circulating about an upcoming attack prior to 9/11. Hicks proves that not only were there rumours galore, but they were ignored and quite deliberately and calculatingly squashed.

In "The Big Wedding: 9/11, The Whistleblowers, & The Cover-up", Sander Hicks assembles a rogue's gallery of fringe-dwellers.

Hi Folks!

To get "inside the book" take a look at Chapter 9, on:


This is a key chapter on the confluence of racism, the Far Right, the Bush White House and international terror. What I am doing in this book is the writing of history, not opinion, not speculation.

Also, Lit Kicks has published a review, here's the link and first paragraph:

There are muckrakers out there, journalists who prod and poke and grope their way to the truth. And then there are a rare few who just break stuff. Sander Hicks, publisher of Vox Pop Books, is one of the most dynamic political troublemakers on the scene. Once he starts gnawing on a case -- whether it has to do with George Bush's sordid past or the relationships between the US government and foreign terrorist groups leading to 9-11 -- you know he's going to keep biting until something snaps, and something is revealed....

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of a number of 9-11 truth movement books that I have reviewed. The bottom line is clear and supported by other books: the U.S. Government had fore-knowledge of 9-11; the FBI and the CIA are a combination of inept and corrupt; and the 9-11 Commission was a deliberate cover-up.

Two of the facts the author cites, while brought out by others, have a special cachet in this particular book:

1) John Ashcroft stopped flying commercial in June 2001; and

2) The 9-11 Fund for victims was managed by a quasi-compromised individual whose task was to get them all (at least 90%) to sign up, because the acceptance of compensation came with a quit claim against the US Government and any further legal action, a compelling indicator, in my mind, of guilt by implication.

Here are a few things that stayed with me from this author's worthy effort:

1) Summary of what we lost on 9-11 from Dr. Hecht: "3000 New Yorkers, half the Constitution, and most of the Republic."

2) Key people like Dave Frasca at FBI that blocked all efforts to stymie the 9-11 attacks, and Francis Taylor at Department of State, director of security (with Ambassadorial rank) and party to special deals with Pakistan, were never forced to testify in detail.

3) 9-11 Commission deliberately started its review in 1996 to leave out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing where evidence exists that the FBI built the bomb and it was all part of an operation that went bad.

In a field filled with "armchair adventurers" with implausible scenarios seemingly designed to make the government's own story seem more like the truth, Sander hicks is one of only a few writers on 9.11 who is not afraid to go out and "committ journalism."

He not only does a great job in describing our findings about Atta in Florida (in Welcome to Terrorland) but breaks new ground with discoveries which have unquestionable relevence to the truth about 9/11: for example, that terror flight school owner Arne Kruithof's past includes cargo flights in a DC-8 in and out of South America. And his interview with randy glass is thought provoking, to say the least, and provides some much-needed context in the search for answers to the larger questions posed by 9.11.
