The 9/11 commission report "simply cannot be trusted," concludes this retired Claremont School of Theology professor. Following up on his call for an official investigation in The New Pearl Harbor (2004), Griffin revisits the cataclysmic events and deconstructs the government's probe. He offers two mind-numbing versions of an "alternative conspiracy theory": that the Bush administration "deliberately" failed to prevent the attacks or, more chillingly, "was actively involved in the planning and execution of the attacks." Why? To spur the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and the occupation of their valuable oil and natural gas resources. Embracing the complicity theory, Griffin claims the 9/11 Commission's report, labeled the Kean-Zelikow Report here to underline the White House allegiances of its Republican chairman and director, was neither thorough nor non-partisan but rather a "cover-up" designed to back up the Bush administration's view of the day's events. Among the problems Griffin says the commissioners fail to address are discrepancies in the hijackers' identities; the behavior exhibited by President Bush and his Secret Service contingent in Florida; and the charges of obstruction by higher-ups made by FBI agent Coleen Rowley and other mid-level officials. In fact, "revisionism" was the Commission's major goal, argues the author, since the report reconstructs the timelines of the hijackings, officials' teleconferences and the plane crashes to absolve the military of mishandling jet fighters' intercepts of the doomed passenger aircraft. Supported by news media reports, government documents and readily available secondary sources, Griffin's research raises valid questions about the Commission's political aims and investigative methods. But unless future Woodwards and Bernsteins dig up evidence to the contrary, the author's theories about a government role in the 9/11 plot will remain pure speculation.

"David Ray Griffin establishes himself, alongside Seymour Hersh, as America's number one bearer of unpleasant, yet necessary, public truths." -- Richard Falk<br /><br />"David Ray Griffin's is one of the finest minds at work in the pursuit of truth about 9/11." -- Barrie Zwicker, Canadian media critic and commentator<br /><br />"David is a national treasure.... A must-read for citizens everywhere asking the hard questions about 9/11." -- Meria Heller, radio host<br /><br />"[A] brilliant analysis of the 9-11 issue..." -- Apollonian, Vanguard News Network<br /><br />"[B]oth convincing and chilling." --Rosemary Radford Ruther, HopeDance Magazine
"Through an incisive and carefully documented review, David Ray Griffin skillfully refutes the findings of the 9/11 Commission and questions the official 'bipartisan' account of what happened. He shows how the dramatic events of September 11 were used by the Bush Administration, through media disinformation, to mislead public opinion, with a view to justifying the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq under the banner of the global 'war on terrorism.'" ---- Michel Chossudovsky, Centre for Research on Globalization/University of Ottawa
>"Once again, a President of the United States reluctantly appointed a commission to investigate a calamitous event in American history and once again, a commission created more questions than it provided answers. David Ray Griffin's latest book amply explains why the 9/11 Commission can now be placed in the same category as the Warren and Tower Commissions as dissemblers and varnishers of the truth." -- Wayne Madsen, syndicated columnist, investigative journalist
>"It is rather obvious that the 9/11 commission aimed more to bring closure than to investigate the anomalies surrounding the event. For the dominant media in the US they have largely succeeded. All the more reason why it is important that its failure even to mention these anomalies not go unnoticed. For those who still seek the truth and hope for a serious investigation of the facts, Griffin's careful analysis of the report is essential reading." --John B. Cobb, Jr., Professor of Theology, Emeritus, Claremont School of Theology

The major focus of this book is all of the 9/11 facts and evidence that conflicts with or contradicts the official gov position documented in the 9/11 Commission Report.
I enjoy highlighting specific passages when I read books but ran into a problem with Dr. Griffin's book. The problem was that I ended up highlighting passages on every page of the book!! So I stopped highlighting around page 74 or it would've taken me twice as long to finish. This book is that good.
The facts and evidence that were omitted or distorted in the 9/11 Commission Report will blow you away. Get this book now!!
Dr Griffin provides disturbingly painful evidence and compelling testimonies from a number of brave and authoritative Americans who want a genuine in depth 911 Investigation (instead of the shameful and blatant coverup of the 911 (C)ommission Report) in order to unmask the real instigators/planners/implementors hiding behind Bin Laden and his gang of thugs.
The real terrorists are those who have orchestrated this sophisticated high tech mass murder of thousands of innocent Americans and foreigners ,which also killed hundreds of heroic firemen and police officers who gave their lives to save their fellow citizens: on the opposite side of this moral compass the insiders on this crime operating anonymously through Wall Street or other stock markets were counting the millions they would make through their PUT orders (sale of shares at fixed prices knowing that prices will drop ) as a result of this heinous crime.
It is increasingly clear that this manufactured event was the "trigger" needed by machiavellian think tanks and their neocon sponsors in Washington , in order to "justify" their recycled New World Order of deceit and greed as well as fraudulent "War on Terror" which is nothing but a convenient cover up for criminal and predatory policies at home and abroad.
God bless David Ray Griffin and bless the brave and honourable America he represents.
