Family Steering Committee Review of the 9/11 Commision Report (Downlaod PDF)
* By David Ray Griffin:
1. “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11” One of the best books to start exploring the whole 9/11 event. Good overview & written clearly and dispassionately.
2. “The 9/11 Commission Report, Omissions and Distortions” David Ray Griffin’s critique of the Kean-Zelikow report makes clear that our nation’s highest leaders have told tales that wear extremely thin when held up to the light of other eyewitness reports, research, and the dictates of common sense—and that the Commission charged with the task of investigating all of the facts surrounding 9/11 has succeeded in obscuring, rather than unearthing, the truth.
3. “Christian Faith and the Truth behind 9/11”. “…gripping summary of evidence for the truth behind 9/11 & the 9/11 Commission Report, a compelling case that imperial practices of the American government have become a destructive force in the world” – Richard Horsely.
4. “911 and the American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out” – co-edited with Peter Dale Scott, with essays by intellectuals from Europe & America, & from different disciplines, and united in the conviction that the official story is a huge deception manufactured to extend imperial control at home & abroad. Contributors include, among others, Richard Falk, David Ray Griffin, Peter Dale Scott, Karin Kwiatkowski, John McMurtry, Morgan Reynolds, Kevin Ryan.
5. “Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory ” – Publishers Weekly review excerpt: All but the most dogmatic readers will find Griffin’s evidence-from the inconsistencies between NORAD tapes and the 9/11 Commission Report to rigorous exploration into the physics of the collapse-detailed and deeply unnerving. For instance, Griffin considers the fact that firefighters were told, five hours before the fact, that building WTC 7 was going to collapse, despite “the fact that WTC 7 was not hit by a plane, that the available photographs show no large fires, and that fire had never caused a steel-frame high-rise to collapse.”
By Paul Zarembka– “The Hidden History of 9-11-2001, Volume 23 (Research in Political Economy)” – This important volume brings together rigorous scholarship on the events of 9-11-2001, and assesses whether the truth has been told by the U.S. government. The lead chapter shows that eleven of FBI-named Arabic hijackers could not have been on the planes, while the Dulles airport videotape — essentially being the case that hijackers boarded flights — has very serious authentication problems. The next three chapters examine insider trading beforehand and the 9-11 flights themselves, then the evidence — based partly upon newly-released reports of more than 500 firefighters — permitting a conclusion that three buildings in the WTC complex were brought down by demolition, followed by discussion of scheduled military drills which confused standard operating procedures, and concluding with a surprising connection to the death of Senator Wellstone, leading critique of the Bush administration.
By Barry Zwicker – “Towers of Deception” – Excellent analysis of most of evidence for 9/11 being an inside job, psychological resistance to same, the media cover-up, false flag operations, & a number of in-depth profiles of left gatekeepers & whistle blowers. By Don Paul & Jim Hoffman – “Waking up from our Nightmare” – excellent analysis of WTC7 collapses with many good photos. (Available at www.wtc7.net/store/books/wakingup/ )
By Jim Marrs – “The Terror Conspiracy” – Using primarily mainstream media & government Reports, Marrs has crafted the definitive journalistic account exposing the likely complicity of the bush administration in the 9/11 attacks, providing a history of the overt & covert causes of the events.
By Michael Ruppert – “Crossing the Rubicon: the Decline of the American Empire at the end of The Age of Oil”. A big book by an ex-detective with political savvy. Extensive documentation, timelines & the larger scale agenda leading up to the motivation for 9/11.
By Paul Thompson – “The Terror Timeline” – “A tremendous resource that will give readers a truly independent means of judging our government in its errant conduct of the War on terror.”
By Nafeez Ahmed – “War on Freedom” & “War on Truth” – Thoroughly documented & disturbing expose of US governments hidden agenda with analysis of 9/11 Commission report.
By Michel Chossudovsky – America’s “War on Terrorism” – Through meticulous research, the author uncovers a military-intelligence ploy behind the September 11 attacks, and the cover-up and complicity of key members of the Bush Administration. September 11, 2001 provides a justification for waging a war without borders. Washington’s agenda consists in extending the frontiers of the American Empire to facilitate complete U.S. corporate control, while installing within America the institutions of the Homeland Security State.
By Sander Hicks- “The Big Wedding – 9/11, The Whistleblowers and the cover-up ” – Hicks shows that his rogue’s gallery of 9/11 whistleblowers has been ignored, and the truths they tell suppressed, on the basis of ad hominem attacks unleashed by the coverup artists and picked up on by an uncritical and naïve media.
By Daniel Hopsicher- “Welcome to Terrorland – Mohamed Atta & The 9-11 Cover-Up in Florida” – Venice, Florida, where three of the four terrorist pilots learned to fly, is the biggest September 11 crime scene that wasn’t reduced to rubble. Yet it has until now received no serious scrutiny for what it might reveal about the nature of the 9/11 attack.
By Peter Lance- “Cover Up: What the Government Is Still Hiding About the War on Terror ” – In the groundbreaking 1000 Years for Revenge, Peter Lance exposed the FBI’s twelve-year record of negligence that led to the attacks of 9/11. Now, alongside the bestselling 9/11 Commission Report, Lance’s Cover Up, proves that the government has been covering up its own counter-terror failures since the mid-1990s and continues to do so today.
By Peter Lance- “Triple Cross: How bin Laden’s Master Spy Penetrated the CIA, the Green Berets, and the FBI–and Why Patrick Fitzgerald Failed to Stop Him ” – In the years leading to the 9/11 attacks, no single agent of al Qaeda was more successful in compromising the U.S. intelligence community than Ali Mohamed. A former Egyptian army captain, Mohamed succeeded in infiltrating the CIA in Europe, the Green Berets at Fort Bragg, and the FBI in California—even as he helped to orchestrate the al Qaeda campaign of terror that culminated in 9/11. As investigative reporter Peter Lance demonstrates in this gripping narrative, senior U.S. law enforcement officials—including the now-celebrated U.S. attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who personally interviewed Mohamed long before he was brought to ground—were powerless to stop him.
