About the Author
Philip Marshall, a veteran airline captain and former government "special activities" contract pilot, has authored three books on Top Secret America, a group presently conducting business as the United States Intelligence Community. Beginning with his role in the 1980s as a Learjet captain first as part of a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sting on Pablo Escobar, and later in the covert arming of the Nicaraguan Contras, Marshall has studied and written 30-years worth of covert government special activities and the revolving door of Wall Street tricksters, media moguls, and their well funded politicians. Marshall is the leading aviation expert on the September 11th attack, as well as a masterful storyteller. The Big Bamboozle (2012) is his second work to focus on the flight training and preparation of 9/11 hijackers' after False Flag 911 was published in 2008. His first book, Lakefront Airport (2003) was a novel based on his experience as a government contract pilot during the Iran-Contra operation. Philip Marshall began his 20-year career as an airline pilot in 1985, flying first with Eastern Airlines and then with United. He holds captain ratings on the Boeing 727, 737, 747, 757 and 767. Born and raised in New Orleans, Marshall currently resides in California.

So I have been researching all these years, tying together more and more truths, following the money and realizing where the current set of mostly bought and paid for politicians stand. Try it sometime, read this book and then backtrack to 9/11.. who came out of that event, where did they go, who profited, and you will start to see the dark universe of the shadow government that really runs the US, and the world for that matter.
I was also drawn to this book for the price that the author seems to have paid for writing it. His life it seems. Phillip Marshall is a remarkably well qualified expert to analyze 9/11. He flew with Barry Seal and was well aware of, and indirect connection with, elements that seemed to have come from Air America, which had its roots in drug running during the Vietnam war. He was close enough to observe a sting operation against Pablo Escobar, he was a commercial airline pilot for many generations of jet airliners, on and on. Well, it seems someone deemed him to be a bit too knowledgeable, a loose end, of sorts.
I don't know the exact nature of his murder, all the exact specifics, but it seems, on the surface, to have been a mafia-style hit. Of particular interest, is why his dog was killed too.. I have often heard this is a mafia style tactic (in this case, the mafia that is in the US government): the mafia wants you to know that they are 'erasing you' from the face of the earth. They start with your pet(s) then proceed to your wife and children (both of phillip's teenage children were also found dead at the scene, Phillip's estranged wife was out of the country) then they kill you. So, as you take your last breath, you will be aware that you, and everything connected to you, has been extinguished. Nasty stuff, huh? That's how the mafia/deep state rolls. These details about Phillip Marshall's murder scene are what told me he was going somewhere that people in power didn't like. He was prying into truths, and had possibly some goods on people that mattered.
So I encourage everyone who wonders why this world runs the way it does, to read this book. What destroys lies? The truth. Arm yourself with the truth. It's got a life force that is indescribable.
It's one thing to suspect something that can't be proven by the average citizen, and quite another to read it written as cold hard facts from an insider who has been there and seen/heard things straight from the horses' mouths. If you want to remain blissfully ignorant of "how things work around here" then don't read this book. If, on the other hand, you are ready to yank the blinders off, this book will expose the festering underbelly that IS our government. Reader, beware!
Most Highly Recommended!

I admit, I don't recall remembering anything about Philip Marshall and like many others; it was only after what was reported on the MSM about his death did I look up his pub and the reviews. I was already in the middle of a different project but I did order the paperback after the news broke. A little over a month later, I came back and ordered the kindle version because of a different reference I was working on (easer to kept notes with the kindle) but still, I didn't make time to really get into in Philip Marshall's book. I was deep into several DVDs created by pilotsfor9/11truth.org around this time and then a short time later, I came across Mark Gaffney's Black 9/11 that eventually lead me down a different direction in the rabbit hole in regards to the aviation industry & 9/11.
Point? I am no expert about any of this stuff and never will be. I have tried to at least get a basic feel for it all. Even so, in the end, I've put my personal safety in the hands of pilots many times in my life so I naturally hold these people in high regard. With that perspective, and my previous experience working for brown shoes now and then while in the USN, I know these people have obtained a level of knowledge whether it be via the military or civil, that present a appreciation for professionalism, safety and perhaps just the fact that what they do on a daily basses, is a little cut above the rest.
To the point, one of the biggest take away pieces of information Philip Marshall will show you, can be found on page 121 where he said "Not one aviation expert ever made it to the 9/11 Commission hearings to discuss the feasibility of this coordinated air attack."Knowing this, he explores how this could have happened in not providing a professional, avionics expert for/to the official 9/11 Commission, where he very clearly presented an astonishing but very disturbing picture of the real attack plan, specifically referencing the official 9/11 publication. He additionally points out that "..a methodical breakdown of the attack using official reports from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), radar recording from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA0 and recovered data from the black boxes, we understand the intensive preparation, intricate execution and impressive skill needed to accomplish the 9/11 mission". Quite simply, as presented, the tragic events we saw on September 11th, 2001 could not have happened as claimed by the 9/11 Commission.
I'm reminded by what a different author has got to say about this: ""It is so important to understand that one of the primary means of immobilizing the American people politically today is to hold them in a state of confusion and which anything can be believed but nothing can be known, nothing of significance, that is. And the American people are more than willing to be held in this state because to know the truth-as apposed to only believe the truth-is to face an awful terror and to be no longer able to evade responsibility. It is precisely in moving from belief to knowledge that the citizen moves from irresponsibility to responsibility..."
There's way, way more to this and I could never coherently present regarding all of the other material that Mr. Marshall uses as justification for this, but I think that the biggest most important item that he used as validation comes from a government investigation that most American are still not aware of, even today as I post this customer comment.The proof of this isn't reading yet a another "9/11 truther rag" to feed the "conspiracy wing nut" with, but rather my personal testimonial that after all this time that this astonishing document has been out on the streets for everybody to see, there has only been one verified customer comment here on Amazon about that information titled:
**********************"Official Investigation presented by the United States Congress Officially notes that 9/11 was a Inside Job, May 20, 2014"***************************
In chapter four from The Big Bamboozle, titled The Joint Congressional Inquiry, Marshall notes, "With all the distractions of terror and war, few Americans realize that in 2002, a Congressional Joint Inquiry was formed to investigate the 9/11 attack. The investigation was an unprecedented act by the U.S. congress. Never before had the two permanent intelligence oversight committees, one from the House and One from the Senate, collaborated on an investigation." The area where he said that it was an "unprecedented act by the United States Congress" should get people's attention, it did mine.
In my observation, as a mature and reasonably intelligent and emotionally healthy American adult, this is the most important historical, legal document presented by the United States government that validates that there is indeed a seditious, secret shadow process/government and that 9/11 was a inside job. It's all there, I know because I'm looking at that report right here, on my second monitor, as I type my comments about it.
9-11 Congressional Report: Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, The Full ... 2003, plus Counterterrorism Material (CD-ROM)
What' even more remarkable, is that even with 28 pages made secret so you and I won't know who the dirty bastards are, Philip Marshall has very carefully point out the exact locations in that report where you & I were Bamboozled. It gives one a petty powerful punch of emotion when they understand. I personally had to push myself away from the computer for a while. As a 51 year old adult, I felt sort of embarrassed and hoped my wife didn't walk into my office with me just sittin there looking like a silly, crying, old goof-ball. It hurts
Reviewing my personal copy of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001-By The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, all while reading the same specific passages out of The Big Bamboozle with Marshal showing you what it really says, gives one the chills.Some of what I've learned: Any one piece of information can be innocuous in its self. The perpetrators of this crime have used that to their advantage. They have to confuse you in order to abuse you.
On page 13, it talks about the CIA headquarters getting vital information that if acted on, had the potential to stop the planed attack, but the CIA failed to respond.
On page 31, the report notes that "Neither the CIA nor the FBI were able to confirm if KSM was in the US or sending recruits before 9/11". As I understand, Marshal points out that this statement means that the story about who attacked us that day was obtained by forced confession alone, and that there's NO other evidence to validate what the official story claims
On page 153, there's a communication between the FBI Headquarters and a New York agent. In short, as I understand it, the New York agent is not a happy camper because the SOP of the CIA is going to get Americans killed.
On Page 158, the short story is that Congress wanted to talk to that fellow that's was a informant with the FBI out in San Diego, that happen to have a couple of the hijackers renting from him. It looks like the FBI was playing defense counsel at one point and needed a lot of legal cover for the guy if he was going to be forced to spill the beans, even though Congress already knew that the dude was full of it, nothing happened about getting the guy on record.
On page 159, the FBI started leaning on their informant where as he let on that he was actually pretty close to the hijackers but "...expressed disbelief that the two were involved]."
On Page 162, the informant uses the Guidelines, as set forth by the Attorney General to say that he had no clue about the two.
On page 163, the San Diego office did get a clue but when Congress asked them about it, they said that the informant was clueless.
One page 164, the FBI guy that had contact with the informant attributed inconsistencies in the informants' lack of a clue because of the guys' clueless personality.
After a couple of redacted lines from the same page, the same agent told congress that the informant was "very credible, highly reliable, very, very credible, very useful" and that the informant had been "duped".
Finally, at the bottom of page 164, Congress has got some serious issues with all of this and thinks the guy might be full of it.
On page 167, headquarters knew about the two, connected to the informant that didn't have a clue but headquarters kept the San Diego office clueless about the two.
One page 174, the money trail leads to Saudi Arabia or another foreign power.
There' a whole lot more to this that may or may not be agreeable to all readers and others that have question his motives but what I've specifically pulled and reported on is what I feel what is the most important message out of this work that I think most will agree with. I think the title fits. What I find sad in all of this is that because many Americans still have no clue, I can't help but to wonder what the next Babboozle might be. I mean, they got away with it before. There is a growing population of adults saying the first time was actually back in 1963.
