Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Barrett, a Muslim convert and Islamic studies professor, is neither hysterical nor a fool, but a thoughtful, questioning and careful man whose outrage nevertheless overwhelms evidence in support of his belief that the tragic events of 9/11 "had been an obvious inside job ... and that the perpetrators are hiding in plain sight, in 'undisclosed locations' at the highest levels of the US government." Barrett brings up many intriguing points, such as the contention, central to many 9/11 conspiracy theories, that the towers fell as a result of controlled demolition, and an intriguing anecdote about the ease with which mainstream media-even French media, "three times as smart and four times as skeptical as their American counterparts"-can be duped. Though his tangents into topics such as religion, UFOs and 9/11 jokes are enlightening, and his sociological observations are often insightful-such as his take on the "new pseudo-religion of post-9/11 'patriotism,'" beget by "spectacular human sacrifice" and "mirroring the worst kind of Christian tradition, itself based on the human-sacrifice image of the Crucifixion"-he doesn't back conclusions with hard facts, directing readers to other books and Web sites to learn the "truth." Though Barrett struggles mightily to make an objective case for the government's culpability in 9/11, raising some worthy points along the way, he's preaching to the converted.

8 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Constance Sue Smith on June 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
The strength of this book is the author's personality. Kevin Barrett is an articulate and original thinker and even a humorist who, at great sacrifice, allowed himself to be embroiled in the ugliest but most important topic of our time -- the overwhelming evidence that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job.

I don't think anyone embraces this perspective because they enjoy it. It is, in fact, NOT adequately embraced by the American public because it is so UN-enjoyable, so downright horrifying. But Kevin romps the reader through the truth as the master educator he is. And as indicated previously, his personality is so authentic and his style is so congenial, the reader feels safe in coming to terms with such a terrible topic at last.

This book is an opportunity to spend time with Kevin Barrett -- to hang out with an extremely good and honest man and to, well, yes -- ENJOY learning about this subject that is so hard but so necessary for all Americans to understand.

Format: Paperback
The still diffuse 9/11 Truth Movement has been making quite an impact on public awareness over the past two or three years, with many significant works emerging. Dr. Barrett, as a writer and an organizer of seminars, ranks right up there in the pantheon of intellectually and physically courageous leaders devoting their "lives, fortunes, and sacred honor" to bringing the lies down and bringing the liars to justice.

I've covered a few 9/11 exposés in my columns and reviews; I have a particular affinity for Dave McGowan's iconoclastic/ everyman hard-headed analysis proffered from the very next day after the crime via his cleverly named Website, Center for an Informed America. In fact, Davesweb analysis is what started my serious questioning of the official story...

Format: Paperback
This consists of the rants of an desperate person who has embraced Islam, the creation of a pitifully delusional, mentally ill person who convinced himself that he was a prophet, the last prophet, one who could not perform miracles yet claimed that he was far more important than Christ.

Format: Paperback
Few autobiographies reach this level of brutal honesty, but if Dr. Barrett has a weakness, he reveals it in Truth Jihad. While a man of amazing moral fortitude and deep convictions, he clearly does not pretend to be perfect. Truth Jihad is an eclectic journey with a storyteller of great courage and conscious as he confronts the widespread myths held by his community and within his own home. Although the subject of 9/11 is difficult, the account skips along playfully...dancing under the possibility of a world of truth.

A man of great awareness and a keen alertness, Dr. Barrett shows his ability to recognize opportunities the rest of us would miss. He demonstrates the use of humor and playful provocation to engage the adversary into revealing their vicious nature...and using that action to the truth's advantage. Instead of fighting his enemies unproductively, he uses them to his benefit and models how precious victories can be achieved along the way. The big and small victories alike are described in loving, playful detail. He involves the reader in the thrill of engaging the enemy of narrow vision and broadening the minds of the audience he engages.

After he reveals his mind and heart through personal and professional stories, the reader explores the theological and philosophical implications with this man of rare morality. Though Dr. Barrett peels many layers off the 9/11 onion, never do the vapors' intensity overpower the peace revealed in the magnificent transformation that is possible when the 9-11 truth struggle reaches victory. Although his Muslim perspective is repeatedly shown, it reminds the reader that all people of conscious are not so very different-no matter their own faith- and the Muslim holocaust is an affront to all of humanity.

If you enjoy the National Enquirer or Mad Magazine, you might find Barrett's highly fictionalized accounts of 9/11 to be amusing examples of conspiracy writing. I have read several books describing an alternate explanation, but have yet to find one that's really believable. So, why believe in an alternate theory when jihadists have taken credit for 9/11?
