Debunking 9/11 Debunking

Interview with author and theologian, Dr. David Ray Griffin, on his new book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory. Dr. Griffin takes on four major semi-official publications: The Popular Mechanics book, Debunking 9/11 Myths; the Kean/Hamilton book, Without Precedent; Vanity Fair's, "9/11 Live the NORAD Tapes"; and NIST's "Answers to Frequently Asked Questions", as well as recent articles in The Progressive, Counterpunch, The Nation, etc. Rational conspiracy theories versus irrational conspiracy theories; good science versus bad science; the stand down; psychological resistance to the evidence. KPFA fundraiser with Bonnie Faulkner and Tod Fletcher.

Six years on the air and still going strong, Guns & Butter is the only show on KPFA that has consistently provided in-depth coverage of alternative 9/11 analysis.

Assassination Day

I like Alex Jones, I think he's a tremendous orator, but i do think he is sometimes incorrect. He recently said (when Saint John Hunt was on his show) that there was "No Doubt" that Sturgis and E. Howard Hunt were two of the three "bums" arrested on Assassination Day. Personally, I think there's plenty of room for doubt. The photos are neither close enough or clear enough for that kind of positive I.D. Sometimes people feel that every little thread must be nailed down. What convinced me of conspiracy is the Umbrella Man. There was no good reason for him to have an umbrella open. The general consensus being he was signalling the shooters that the operation was a "GO." But I don't find the "immoblizing dart" theory that hard to swallow, either. Because of the fact that if you see the photo of Kennedy before the trachetomy, there's a tiny puncture hole at the bottom of his Adam's apple. Too small for a bullet, unless they were using BBs.


I'm not sure how you got from our show to that comment, though.

Thank you starts in 15 minutes

Thank you Yarrow, David is one of the few spokesman for 9/11 truth that I trust He has been a mainstay. Alex Jones on the other hand ???

Reviews on DRG's new book.

Editorial Reviews
John V. Whitbeck, author of The World According to Whitbeck
After reading David Ray Griffin's previous books on the subject, I was over 90% convinced that 9/11 was an inside job. Now, after reading Debunking 9/11 Debunking, I am, I regret to say, 100% convinced.

Howard Zinn
Considering how the 9-ll tragedy has been used by the Bush administration to propel us into immoral wars again and again, I believe that David Ray Griffin's provocative questions about 9-ll deserve to be investigated and addressed.

Bill Christison, former senior official of the CIA
David Ray Griffin's Debunking 9/11 Debunking is a superb compendium of the strong body of evidence showing the official US government story of what happened on September 11, 2001 to be almost certainly a monstrous series of lies. Tragically, the entire course of US foreign and domestic policies since that date has grown out of these almost certain falsehoods. This single book could (and should) provide the basis for the United Nations International Court of Justice, or some specially constituted global body (independent of the US) to investigate with highest priority, and publicly report its findings about, the charge that unknown elements within the US government, and possibly some individuals elsewhere closely allied to the US, caused or contributed to causing the events of September 11 to happen.

Paul Craig Roberts, assistant secretary of the US Treasury during the Reagan administration
Professor Griffin is the nemesis of the 9/11 cover-up. This new book destroys the credibility of the NIST and Popular Mechanics reports and annihilates his critics."

Meria Heller, producer host of the Meria Heller Show (
David Ray Griffin hits another one out of the park by taking on the left gatekeepers and the mass media for the lies and cover-up called "the official story of 9/11/01," which is the greatest conspiracy theory ever perpetrated on the American public. I highly recommend this book for all thinking Americans.
