Careful, Logical Look at 9/11 Attacks & Surrounding Hysteria,
This review is from: Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts (Paperback)
Debunking 9/11 Myths provides a straightforward, lucid response to many of the far-fetched claims that the hijacked-airliner attacks on September 11, 2001 were somehow perpetrated by elements within the U.S. government.
Americans have long held a strong distrust of their own government, but these claims are certainly of grandiose proportions. Five years after the horrific events of that day, figures on the far-left and far-right continue to downplay the role of foreign Islamicist terrorists and pin the blame on a secret cabal of government-types. But in order to make their case, proponents of the notion that 9/11 was in inside job make a number of purported factual assertions and raise questions about a number of technical details surrounding events of that day. Here is where the writers and editors of Popular Mechanics come in.
This book examines U.S.-government-conspiracy scenarios involving attacks upon the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, as well as the downing of United Flight 93. Claims made by U.S.-government-conspiracy proponents are examined in turn and carefully debunked by an examination of the facts. Countless witnesses and engineers were consulted by Popular Mechanics in preparing this book. The resulting product is level-headed and methodical.
I strongly recommend Debunking 9/11 Myths.
