A unique and valuable contribution,
This review is from: 9/11 Truther: The Fight for Peace, Justice and Accountability (Kindle Edition)
Since 2002, Jon Gold's* been an activist for truth and justice concerning the 9/11 attacks; a `9/11 Truther.' He doesn't claim to know the truth about 9/11, and when he's made mistakes, he's acknowledged them and moved on. Mainly, Jon has pointed out that those in charge of defending the US constitution and country failed to do so on 9/11, failed to give a credible account of why they failed, and subsequently exploited the attacks to impose a Constitution-subverting national security state and launch wars in geo-strategic regions, which have been enormously profitable for the military-industrial complex. He's also called attention to the fact that the 9/11 Commission was run by Establishment insiders with conflicts of interest, and that their story about how and why 9/11 happened is contradicted by evidence in the public record, including information in their own report. Jon seeks full disclosure and accountability, for the sake of peace, truth and justice, for the 9/11 victim's families, for the sick and dying first responders, for all Americans and for the people of the world.
This book is part autobiography and part chronicle of the 9/11 Truth Movement over the last ten years, from Jon's perspective as a participant. His telling of this story is supported with examples of his writing, as well as communications he's received from people over the years, both positive and negative. For his efforts to be honest, factual, credible and effective as an activist, he's been attacked by people who have embraced the official 9/11 story, as well as by people claiming to reject it. On the other hand, his focus has earned him praise and thanks from people who were objective and at first ambivalent regarding accountability for 9/11, but became educated through conversations with him or reading material he's shared, such as Cindy Sheehan, as well as from sincere activists for truth and justice who he learned from, such as the Jersey Girls. The book is informative and enlightening, and nakedly, emotionally honest. A unique and valuable contribution.
* Disclosure: I know Jon personally, consider him a friend and receive thanks in the book.
