Thierry Meyssan (born 1957) is a French journalist and political activist, who has investigated the extreme right-wing, as well as into the Catholic Church (e.g., Opus Dei). He has also written the book Pentagate, arguing that a missile, not American Airlines Flight 77, caused the destruction at the Pentagon.

He states in the Introduction to this 2002 book, "this official version does not stand up to critical analysis. We will demonstrate that it is nothing more than a cover-up. In some instances... our questions remain for the moment unanswered, but this is no reason to go on believing the lies put forward by officials."

He asserts that "only a missile of the United States armed forces transmitting a friendly code could enter the Pentagon's airspace without provoking a counter-missile barrage. This attack could only be committed by United States military personnel against other U.S. military personnel." (Pg. 28) He draws a parallel between 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, when "a large portion of the civil servants were given a half-day off work so that the car bomb explosion only killed 168 persons. This was an attack we now know was carried out by military personnel belonging to an extreme right-wing organization which itself had been infiltrated by the FBI." (Pg. 37)

He suggests that the creation of the Office of Homeland Security is leading to "a takeover of civilian life by the military and the intelligence agencies." (Pg. 92) His ultimate conclusion is that "the attacks of September 11 were masterminded from inside the American state apparatus." (Pg. 139)

Meyssan's book influenced David Ray Griffin, whose own books on 9/11 (e.g.

Thierry Meyssan was the first, and a very early, critic of the US government- sponsored propaganda on the events of 09/11/01. His insight is impeccable. We are (yet) fortunate that our First Amendment rights to publish wihout censorship have not (yet) been abrogated. As a physicist, and member of SPINE, I know that the details of the deception practiced about 9/11, go far far beyond Meyssan's account.

Meyssan's book seized upon the simple physical impossibility of how a passenger jet is able to fit inside such a small opening as evidenced by the earliest photos of the Pentagon's facade post-strike.

Mind you, he conducted his research almost immediately after the first reports of the "attack" on the Pentagon -- a time when most people blithely accepted that "Islamic terrorists" struck America. Make no mistake, Meyssan's work was not only brave, but extremely unpopular.

But, it all comes down to what you wish to believe.

Do you wish to believe that: a large passenger jet could fit -- wings and all -- into a hole less than 1/3 it's original width and then melt at extreme temperatures that not even jet fuel can create whilst striking a target at an angle that would only be possible with expert maneuvering -- all by an amateur pilot? Do you wish to also believe that any and all (governmental AND civilian) surveillance footage was confiscated and -- except for 3 whole frames -- is still today kept from the public in the best interests of said public?

Or, do you want to use your common sense in that when some group (be it governmental or otherwise) seeks to go to extreme lengths to conceal evidence from the public and then concoct ridiculous scenarios that become the "official version," that we were simply lied to?

Meyssan's book is a valuable read for anyone who is a free-thinking individual and not a member of a herd.

Author Thierry Meyssan explains how evil the USA has become:

1. The FBI ignored all 9/11 evidence and covered up the truth.
2. The Bush family made millions by buying/selling stock in the weeks before 9/11/
3. Right-wing religions aided the cover-up with fake prayers and propaganda.
4. The CIA sponsored Bin Laden and used him and other Arabs for oil.
5. The Bush family and the Saudiis are partners in huge crimes, including 9/11.
6. The USA media is complicit in these horrible deaths.
7. Ordinary people believe anything they are told.
8. Eisenhower was totally correct: the military-industrial complex owns America.
9. To gain control of our democracy seems absolutely impossible.
10. America is a right-wing horror.

Thierry Meyssan 9/11 approaches the demolition of 9/11 from a very different perspective. Where as Dr. Judy Wood, "Where Did The Towers Go?" is a structural engineer, One of the best, and poses 43 unanswered questions. And concludes that 9/11 was a demonstration to the world of a new technology known as free energy. This is a force that can be used for demonic, ruinous, earth-destructive purposes as the Hutchison effect, interferometry explains.
Meyssan's "9/11 The Big Lie" approaches the disaster very differently. The book is based exclusively on documents published by the White House and the U.S.Department of Defense as well as statements by U.S. civilian and military leaders to the international press. What stunned me deeply was "Operation Northwoods on pages 143 - 147. Every American should read these pages and note what the defense department is capable of. Defense Secretary Robert McNamara saved us from this horrid disaster, but there won't always be a McNamara. Trump may be our Brigadier General William H. Craig. Who will stop him?
