Editorial Reviews


A bombshell, brilliant book - I strongly recommend 911 Synthetic Terror. Should be required reading for all honest truth seekers. -- Judy Andreas, Rense.com, March 18, 2006

Can't stop reading; 9/11 Synthetic Terror is brilliantly written. Delivers a devastating judgment. Congratulations! I endorse it wholeheartedly. -- Andreas von Buelow, Author of The CIA and 9/11.

September 11 was the true face of corporatized terror, said Tarpley on the "unanswered questions" of the socalled Official Story. -- Mark Johnson, New York Magazine, March 27, 2006. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

For a principled refutation of the 9/11 propaganda myth in all its parts, Tarpley's work is indispensable. This new, fifth edition adds a significant new dimension. Tarpley's documentation of a comprehensive array of 9/11 drills may prove as revolutionary as the thesis of controlled demolition - perhaps even more so. Many people have been unable to see that 9/11 was a false flag. They may seem immune to physical facts like the free-fall speed of the towers, as they take refuge in a lack of engineering qualifications. No math skills are needed to grasp the more familiar, common-sense fact that an act that is rehearsed is also staged. Moreover, when we learn how drills are essential to conduit such operations, we can recognize many types of false flags, such as the London bombings, and not only building collapses. Finally, wider public awareness of the dangerous workings of drills could help prevent terror operations, by making them too difficult to carry out with impunity.

The authoritative work on 9/11 and state-sponsored false-flag terrorism. 9/11 Synthetic Terror is the only book to present a working model for the event - a network of moles, patsies, paramilitary pros, privatized intelligence assets and corrupt media corporations. We see how this enormous provocation was successfully executed and exploited as war propaganda. This new, fifth edition reveals a whole new dimension of explosive facts for the first time: the enormous array of drills in which the US defense apparatus rehearsed every aspect of the 9/11 operation. Author Webster Tarpley presents the corpus of 9/11 research - such as the controlled demolition of the three WTC towers - from the perspective of a veteran intelligence expert and historian. The exploit is placed in the geopolitical context of oligarchy and imperialism - in the tradition of precedents such as the Gunpowder Plot, the USS Maine, the Strategy of Tension, and other historically decisive state-sponsored terror subterfuges. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Webster Griffin Tarpley's book adds to the literature exposing the fraudulent basis of the so-called "War on Terror," by revealing the official account of 9/11 to be a flimsy tissue of illusions and evasions. For the 49.3% of New York City residents who, according to a Zogby 2004 poll, believe our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act," this book will provide proof that their beliefs are closer to the truth than the official fairy tale peddled by the 9/11 Commission and the corporate-controlled media.

Tarpley, an activist and historian, is the author of George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), and Against Oligarchy, among other books. By "Synthetic Terror," he suggests that the events of 9/11 did not happen in the normal course of events. They were not acts of crazed Arabs who "hate our freedom," nor were they "blowback" from victims of America's criminal foreign policy. A few patsies from oppressed groups may have been used by the intelligence network, because "false flag" operations require patsies to be effective, but they were incapable of pulling off an attack of this sophistication by themselves. Nowhere is that made more clear than in the forensic evidence surrounding the inexplicable collapse of three steel-framed buildings, WTC 1, 2 and 7.

Tarpley devotes a chapter to the controlled-demolition hypothesis, suggesting that the collapse of two steel-framed high-rise buildings from the impact of the planes and subsequent fires was physically impossible.

My title is not a joke.

It has now become pitifully obvious, thanks to earlier pioneering work by David Ray Griffin, Eric Hufschmidt, and others, that "Boxcutter 9-11" was a USA mil.gov psychological operation. The Kean Commission report was an absolute fabrication and blatant coverup that any high school student could see through (especially if aided by Griffin's laser sharp but mildly titled book "Ommissions and Distortions").

It is the eternal, unspeakable shame of the American people, hobbled by our ridiculously arrogant and moronic teeth-and-hair mainstream media, those proudly pathetic courtiers and lickspittles to Respectability and Power, that this total garbage has been swallowed by all of us - hook, line, and sinker.

Tarpley's book goes farther than anybody ever has in answering the questions that just won't let you sleep once you realize the magnitude of this Orwellian crime. Tarpley diagrams (literally!) all the major elements and their interconnections. You won't be able to put the book down.

You may wonder why the USA mainstream media has spent millions of dollars, and thousands of hours and newsprint pages on things like Whitewater, Michael Jackson's trial, and Martha Stewart's trial, or even apparently deeper scandals such as Abramoff and Abu Graib; and you may wonder why, when one dinky pissant little private investigator calls out the fakery of the best-selling book "Million Little Pieces", the mainstream media (CNN, NPR, AOL-Time Warner, etc.) goes ape with stories this past week - You wonder WHY is it those trivial "stories" get saturation coverage, while NOT ONE SINGLE mainstream outlet will lift one single finger to call for re-opening of ANY aspect of the completely false and totally absurd Official USA mil.

There is much abused quote about war being diplomacy by other means. The gist of this book is that disguised, state sponsored terrorism is domestic politics by other means. It is chillingly convincing. Tarpley begins with a summary of what he terms The Myth of the Twenty-First Century: the lies about September 11. His next chapters contain a summary of how synthetic, or disguised state sponsored terrorism, works, with limited but excellently chosen examples. He follows this with a chapter setting out the American Empire's situation, which he says is approaching collapse, and why it chose brought synthetic terrorism into the US. One of the flaws of this book, in its accessibility at least, is immediately evident. Tarpley constantly mentions the rogue network responsible for September 11 and the oligarchy behind the network, and refers to "the corporate controlled media". But he never once defines the oligarchy, or the rogue network for that matter. He assumes that the reader has penetrated the first and larger myth, that America is a moral, free speech loving democracy, with a government for whom ethics and morality are more than buzzwords to attract voters. If the reader hasn't, this is a really bad book to start with.

Tarpley then spends eight chapters on, first, the creation of Al Qaeda by the CIA, and the events of September 11. He uses a very simple criterion: is what the government says happened, physically possible? The gist of all these chapters is simple, shocking and frightening: no matter where you probe the government's account, it fails. Call it 20/20 hindsight if you will, but ... I watched the Towers collapse, live on TV. I remember how eerie it felt, to see them collapse with such perfect symmetry, just like a controlled demolition.
