(same review as kindle customer review)
I have both the book publication and the Kindle version because I personally feel that what happened on September 11, 2001 will eventually be looked at as the defining moment not only in American history but will be referenced globally in that this offense against humanity will be the quintessential model on how a State Crime was almost completely successful with the story that the deaths of millions is justified in the name of terrorism. I'm not recommending the hardbound book for anybody else but I do most strongly recommend the Kindle version. A quick review of the downloaded version doesn't include the UK pension system. That was done because this initial work was censored here in United States so it was initially published in the UK.
The first author presents that the FBI's list of supposed hijackers is not possible to verify because of the controlling authority's refusal to disclose the evidences to verify what is claimed, thus showing a lack of honestly and cover-up. The rest of part one details specific streams of information that include the videotape evidence, accused hijackers still alive, or could it even be possible that these hijackings just happened by chance with all of these drills going on. There's also the discussion of US covert intelligent use of doubles that include evidence of national security overrides and "protected" activities in regards two of the hijackers. Other details discussed the political connections, Pentagon surveillance, and the FBI cover-up of Mohammed Atta. The climax of this chapter presents solid information that very clearly presents that part of this had to do with the protection of drug trafficking. There are several detailed quotes and references throughout this chapter but I was especially pleased the author noted the publication, Welcome To TerrorLand.
I also most strongly recommend Alfred W. McCoy's publication, The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, Gary Webb and even Classified Woman-The Sibel Edmonds Story: A Memoir.
The next author, Paul Zarembka details information and presenting evidence of insider trading before 9/11. This too is an outstanding chapter with an outstanding list of references but I would add one more: Black 9/11: Money, Motive and Technology
The next author presents evidence on why the official account cannot be true. I agree all three buildings presented characteristics of controlled explosives but I do most strongly recommend to obtain Dr. Judy Wood's Publication. She's one of the most highly qualified Americans that have spoken up. I find that Dr. Judy Wood is a American Hero. Additionally, regardless of what I anyone else might assume how building 7's structural failure was initiated, David Ray Griffin is a American hero because all these years he has been able to validate to other Americans that there is justification to look closer at all of the official material presented and how it all qualifies to be regarded in that this event was a created and almost completely controlled, State Crime Against Democracy.
Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11
9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed
Four Arrows (aka Don Jacobs) goes into more detail about the "Bizarre Coincidence" regarding all of the military drills on 9-11. The sources that he presents are priceless in that it's a transcript of Representative Cynthia McKinney's exchange with defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers, the undersecretary and others. For a visual recording from C-Span regarding this specific exchange, the first DVD in September 11, The Newest Pearl Harbor, is most strongly recommended.September 11 - The New Pearl Harbor
After Mr. Jacobs, one of the most impressive authors I've ever read in regard to this whole mess is Naffeez Mosaddeq Ahmed. I will point out that DR. NAFEEZ MOSADDEQ AHMED is a best-selling writer and international security analyst. He is Executive Director at the Institute for Policy Research & Development (IPRD) in London. Ahmed has written features, commentary, and analysis for various publications including the Independent on Sunday, the Scotsman, Sydney Morning Herald, the Age, Le Monde diplomatique, Foreign Policy, the New Statesman, Prospect, the Gulf Times, Daily News Egypt, Daily Star (Beirut), Pakistan Observer, Tehran Times, Bangkok Post, Prague Post, the Georgian Times, Open Democracy, Raw Story, and New Internationalist, as well as several policy periodicals. Ahmed is coproducer and writer of the critically acclaimed documentary feature film, The Crisis of Civilization (2011), adapted by director and producer Dean Puckett from Ahmed's 2010 book, A User's Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It. Among other books he has authored, the 2002 book The War on Freedom: How & Why America was Attacked, September 11, 2001 is archived in the "9/11 Commission" Collection at the US National Archives in Washington, DC; it was among ninety-nine books made available to each 9/11 commissioner of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States to use during their investigations. Ahmed has taught at the University of Sussex's School of Global Studies and Brunel University's Politics and History Department. He is also a regular media commentator and has appeared frequently, in the US, on C-SPAN, CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg, PBS, National Public Radio, and Progressive Radio Network, and internationally on BBC News, Al Jazeera English, Press TV (Iran), Islam Channel, and more. To the point about is his is that it's wonderful and I most strongly recommend Naffeez Mosaddeq Ahmed's publication The War on Truth: 9/11, Disinformation and the Anatomy of Terrorism
The next author is David McGregor with his essay titled September 11 as "Machiavellian state terror". I admit I had to cringe a little when he used Chomsky as one of his references. (Chomsky said 9/11 is a black hole) but I'm well aware that it would be foolish to disregard material because it doesn't mesh with my comfort level. A different example would be my customer review of Cass Sunstin's publication Conspiracy Theories and Other Dangerous Ideas Although I find the publication by Mr Sunstin revolting and it pains me to think my recommendation might actually benefit Mr. dude in the short term, I am most strongly recommending his publication because he's the new "Machiavellian" where as his writings will impact future generations of Americans and their quality of life. Admittedly this is my personal perspective and yours might be different but as I noted in my review in Mr. Sun Steen's publication, "It's prudent to appreciate the diagnostics of investigational functions and it's intended usage because the failure to utilize the information gleamed from this engine could present elements of the observer effect. Others would call it group think. On page 46, Cass R. Sunstein refers to this "phalanx" as "Misfearing" whereas; "misfearing can produce unfortunate misallocations of public resources when nations devoted a lot of money to small problems and much less to big ones. Reading further, one will understand that this perspective is reflective NOT in elements in regards to leadership, but rather, Mr. Sunstein thesis/argument is in reference to the public at large, to be measured using a cost-benefit analysis. He further expands this by presenting tools to be operated "...as a helpful constraint." Because Misfearing can be a result of social interactions...", as noted on page 48. There's more to his justification using a matrix in regards to economic valuation, the health care industry and the value of a premature death (Value of a Statistical Life). This idea noted by Mr. Sunstein could present justification on the use of Fluoride in our drinking water.
I'll also point out that in the eyes of Mr. Sunstein, it would be reasonable to focus on terrorism because people from other nations believe false conspiracy theories about the United States. I am not qualified to say anything about this specifically, but I can note Mr.Cass R. Sunstein's brilliant understanding about "the crippled epistemology of extremism," because he's able to observe that a lot of people are lazy, can't present coherent conservation and we all need to rely on people we trust. This is because you aren't there personally, specifically when it comes to politics and government. Because of our failures in not being at hand, he recommends cognition infiltration to help relax your mind. If one is able to agree with this science, then his publication is a welcomed piece of work that very clearly enhances one of the members of the 9/11 Commission where she seems to claim that what happened on September 11th, 2001, could have resulted [because] the investigation of intelligence activities where as the church Committee's impact might have handicapped the discovery of the attackers plans years later. Again, I have not participated in any of this so I can only make a personal evaluation on what I read and their experiences. With that said, I recommend the publication by Dr.Nancy Turner Banks and how her published work reflects on Mr.Sunstein thesis.AIDS, Opium, Diamonds, and Empire
The last couple of authors essays are titled Making History the Compromise 9/11 Commission by Brian Sacks, Islamophomia and the "War on Terror": The continued pretext for US imperial conquest by Diane Ralph and the last one deals with the UK pension system and it relates to the global context. I would also add two additional publications that helps to enhance this last section.
Conspiracy Theory in America (Discovering America)
American Heart of Darkness: Volume I:The Transformation of the American Republic into a Pathocracy
Kind of hard not to recognize that the Government and supporters want people to believe the official story based on faith.
James McDonald, San Diego, Ca 2014
Within "Hidden History" you will learn about insider trading that the Commission chose to gloss over. You will learn about multiple War Games, "Terror Drills" and military exercises that preceded and took place on 9/11. You will learn about the history of state sponsored terrorism. You will gain new insight into the true nature of al-Qaeda and how it has continued to interface with Western intelligence agencies well after the end of the Cold War.
You will learn about geopolitical strategy that could have been dictated by Machiavelli himself, but instead comes from American think-tanks and intellectuals, like Zbigniew Brzezinski and the Project for a New American Century. You will learn how fundamentally flawed the 9/11 Commission was, riddled with conflicts of interest and guided by partisan considerations.
There could be 10 books like this, replete with extensive footnotes, endnotes and impeccable research. However, roadblocks remain, fueled by misguided skepticism, ideological bias, and agendas that overlap, fusing imperial ambitions with regional desires and corporate deviance.
This is the first serious volley from the academic community upon the "official story" of 9/11.
There will be more to come.
As original contributions to human knowledge, these publications are invariably, routinely reviewed. Of particular note is the fact that this volume has NEVER BEEN REVIEWED IN THE US. To fill this gap, I have submitted a review of this compendium to at least a dozen newspapers, but without success. The continuing absence of a review is enormously significant with regard to the psychological denial of scientifically-based 9/11 research.
Here, therefore, is my review:
On September 11, 2001 at 5:20 pm, World Trade Center Building No. 7, a 47-storey steel structure one block from the Twin Towers, suddenly collapsed at freefall speed into its own footprint. It had not been hit by an airplane, and its collapse was not reported in the national news.
The implosion of WTC-7 is just one of a host of strangely unreported events which have finally seen the light of day in the impeccably researched Hidden History of September-11-2001, from Elsevier Science Press, the first prestigious academic publisher to question the extraordinary coincidences and pervasive incompetence which the U.S. government blamed for the success of the attacks.
Having named the hijackers the following day, the Bush administration fought against an investigation, and only struck a Commission of Inquiry 451 days later, under pressure from impacted families. However, Jay Kolar, an expert in film analysis, offers detailed proof that 11 of the 19 FBI-named hijackers could not have been on the aeroplanes, and that the Dulles airport surveillance video which identified the men was undated, and showed evidence of tampering--through multiple camera locations, times of day, splicing, and panning.
Citing the recently released "Oral Histories" from the New York Fire Department, Professor emeritus Dr. David Ray Griffin challenges the official conclusion that fire destroyed the buildings. Historically, no steel skyscraper has ever collapsed from fire, yet all three buildings showed 11 features unique to controlled demolitions: sudden onset, straight-down descent, freefall speed, sliced steel, pulverized concrete, dust clouds, horizontal ejections, demolition rings, audible explosions, molten steel, and total collapse.
Six military drills conducted the morning of 9/11, described by Four Arrows (aka Don Jacobs) of Northern Arizona University, were so similar to the actual attacks that they confounded the response effort and raised serious questions about possible complicity by the U.S. command. The Commission's report barely dealt with this extraordinary coincidence, raising questions as to who was in charge and why the drills were covered up.
Flawed processes in the Commission's inquiry are exposed by Bryan Sacks of Drexel University, Philadelphia. Executive Director Philip Zelikow, who was closely tied, personally and professionally, to the Bush White House, structured the investigation to allow a trusted group of insiders to intervene between the Commissioners and the sensitive information which might have brought closure to the issues.
Though materials supporting the official story were readily available, information contradicting it was withheld, omitted, or distorted. In short, the Commission failed to present a rigorous set of findings to lay dark questions to rest.
Statistical analysis of insider trading before the attacks is presented by Elsevier's Series editor Paul Zarembka, Economics Professor, State University of New York. Based on a study in the Journal of Business, he demonstrates unusual market activity against American and United Air Lines shortly before September 11, suggesting advance investor knowledge of the attacks.
In Part III, Nafeez Mossadeq Ahmed's "Terrorism as Statecraft: Al-Qaeda and Western Covert Operations After the Cold War" exposes U.S. and British involvements with the Afghan mujahideen after the Soviet Union collapse. These "Afghan Arabs" were used in covert operations throughout the 1990s, while American agencies supported, manipulated, and infiltrated the Taliban and mujahideen to gain access to oil and gas. Ahmed concludes that al-Qaeda has been gradually transformed into a complex, covert instrument of Western imperialism.
Supporting this claim is Canadian Diana Ralph's (Carleton University) "Islamophobia and the "War On Terror": The Continuing Pretext for U.S. Imperial Conquest". Ralph argues that the Cheney-led Project for the New American Century developed the image of the radical Muslim terrorist to foster "Islamophobia" as a basis to pursue its American imperialistic agenda abroad, while diluting constitutional rights at home.
Though these alarming claims run contrary to our perception of a free and open society, Canadian David McGregor (University of Western Ontario) illustrates, through the history of "Machiavellian State Terror", how rulers have historically perpetrated violations on their own states to advance the goals of the ruling elite. While an outside threat is fashioned to gain public support for aggression, a masked agenda unfolds. McGregor, like Eisenhower before him in 1961, stresses the urgency of vigilant surveillance of the military-industrial complex by an alert and informed citizenry.
If 9/11 was a false-flag operation, both US foreign policy and the domestic withdrawal of civil rights since that day have been based on a massive deception. It is now long overdue for a truly independent investigation to probe the realities of 9/11, and if necessary, to begin the process of reversing the appalling damage that has been done in the name of an outside attack upon the United States.
