This is a DVD Copy; it will come in a paper sleeve. Authorized DVD Copies intended for educational purposes only. DESCRIPTION: This is David's newest and finest DVD. Just as many consider The New Pearl Harbor to be the best of the 9/11 books, 9/11 - The Myth and the Reality is already considered by many to be the best 9/11 Truth DVD available. This lecture was videotaped with six cameras at two locations: March 30, 2006, at Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, and the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on April 3. Griffin's stellar talk is generously illustrated with many graphics and video clips. The talk opened thus: Although I am a philosopher of religion and theologian, I have spent most of my time during the past three years on 9/11---studying it, writing about it, and speaking about it. In this lecture, I will try to make clear why I believe this issue worthy of so much time and energy. I will do this in terms of the distinction between myth and reality. Griffin continues: Given the role the official account of 9/11 has played and continues to play, the most important question before our country today is whether this account…is a myth in the pejorative sense--that is, whether it is simply false. Griffin then outlines and detailed nine of the many myths in the official story of the 9/11 attacks that are demonstrably false. He concludes: The official story of 9/11, serving as a national religious Myth, has been used to justify two wars, which have caused many tens of thousands of deaths; to start a more general war on Islam, in which Muslims are considered guilty until proven innocent; to annul and violate civil rights; and to increase our military spending, which was already greater than that of the rest of the world combined, by hundreds of billions of dollars, partly so that weapons can be put into space.
Composed of two powerful speeches given the masterful Philosopher and Theologist Dr. David Ray Griffin at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco (4/3/06) and at The Grand Lake Theater in Oakland (3/30/06), 9/11: The Myth and The Reality exposes the official story of 9/11 for what it truly is: a sacred myth. Throughout this incredible video, enhanced with forceful images and video segments, Griffin details nine of the most commonly held myths and misconceptions about the events surrounding 9/11 and with logical precision proves the fallacies of each one. Each speech is followed by an in-depth question & answer section featuring hard-hitting questions about 9/11 posed to one of the subject's foremost scholars. --Alex JamesSee all Editorial Reviews

The first thing that popped into my mind, when I watched the second plane crash into the remaining tower was,"where are the fighter jets???" It was preposterous to me that any large plane, not on a proper approach to either La Guardia or JFK, would be allowed to approach NYC. Any pilot even of small planes, knows this. I am one of them.
Bush's vacuous face, sitting in a classroom, after 2 planes crashed, was unbelievable. I found it completely unbelievable that the Secret Service would not have rushed him out, to an undisclosed location. IF this was unexpected.
Perhaps the most unbelievable, that Dr Griffin pointed out:
How on earth, short of controlled implosion could there be free fall destruction of these 2 giant towers? Anyone with a science background would laugh at the story proposed by the government.
Finally: I always ask: who benefited from this, in the short term and long term? These were clearly detailed by Dr Griffin.
As a patriotic American, questioning the intention of corrupt government officials and the Military-Industrial-Complex , which President Eisenhower asked his generation of Americans, and us (future generation) ...is in Itself a patriotic thing to do. In America we ask tough questions of our government, our media. We are not in Venezuela, Colombia, China, or Singapore. not yet.
To those who dont like this: believe what you wish. But do NOT deny those of us who like to question, who like to get believable answers, the right to do so. We ask these questions not just for ourselves, but you, our fellow Americans.
Dr. Griffin, a theologian and author of 20+ other books not even related to 9/11 stands up what is for me one of the most rational and valid appraoches to the conspiracy theory moniker that's slapped onto anyone second guessing some or all of the commission's findings. Read the description again and judge for yourself but for me it did exactly what it said, that is it "presents a case that leaves very little doubt that the attacks of 9/11 need to be further investigated."
The one line drivel coming from the simpletons giving it one star have the attention span of gnats raised on Short Attention Span Theatre who never even got through this program. And if they did they couldn't understand (or care) about most if not all of what they heard. If you're only mildly interested in conspiracy theories (in general) give this a chance. But be prepared for more of a graduate college style lecture with an honest and straight forward presentation that delivers on its description quite literally and above all accurately.
