New York Times Bestselling Author Aims at 9/11 Coverup with Both Barrels Blazing

New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten is releasing a novel January 22nd which addresses the 9/11 stand down, the injection of false radar blips into air traffic controllers' screens, PNAC, the 9/11 Commission whitewash, the Anthrax attacks, and related issues.

Written in the exciting, cloak-and-dagger style of Robert Ludlum, the novel -- The Shell Game -- has a shot at educating a large segment of the American public who would otherwise remain in the dark about some aspects of 9/11.

Alten is well-aware of media censorship of 9/11 truth (for example, he agrees with this analysis, he also sent me an advance copy of the book), and is trying to break through the media blockade using his resume as bestselling author to spread his message.

I just finished reading The Shell Game, and caught up with Alten by email.

GW: I really like The Shell Game, Steve. It had me on the edge of my seat, and I stayed up later than I should have a couple of nights to finish it.

SA: My books tend to be ... page-turners. The Shell Game does that and adds another twist ... it's all real, or it predicts what may really happen unless we stop the insanity. To stop it you must first be aware of it.

GW: If enough people read The Shell Game, it could bypass media censorship regarding 9/11 and reach people who would otherwise not be exposed to the facts. But if it doesn't sell well, then it will simply be an entertaining read for those already aware of the facts behind 9/11. So how are your efforts to promote The Shell Game going?

SA: We've been getting copies into the hands of key 9/11 groups over the last six months. Now it's up to them to create a buzz ... along with my mainstream fans.

GW: The Shell Game reads like a mix of Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown. Are those 3 authors all influences on your writing?

SA: Clancy, Thomas Harris, Ian Fleming...among others.

GW: Your discussions about 9/11 will be familiar to those who have studied the issue. In addition to Michael Ruppert's Crossing the Rubicon and David Ray Griffin's writings, what other 9/11 writings do you like?

SA: 9/ And videos like Loose Change.

GW: My father-in-law says that people predicted Peak Oil decades ago, and were proven wrong. Does the discovery of the massive new oil reserve in Brazil change your conviction that Peak Oil is upon us?

SA: Unless it is as big as Ghawar ... no. Oil IS running out. If not, do you seriously believe we'd have invaded Iraq?

GW: I've heard before that many of the world's top microbiologists have been killed under suspicious circumstances, but I've never heard anyone link their deaths to an alleged plot to reduce world population through biological warfare. That was the scariest part of the book for me. Do you have any evidence that the elites are really planning a massive depopulation of this kind?

SA: Read Rubicon and extrapolate Peak Oil.

GW: Well, I hope you're wrong. In any event, thanks, Steve. I hope the book does well.

SA: With your help it will ... for all of us.

Update: Bill Douglas, Janice Matthews, David Ray Griffin, Kevin Ryan, Dr. Robert Bowman and other prominent 9/11 activists have all signed the following endorsement for the book:

Good news

This book sounds really great. I think its publication will be a real step forward for the 9/11 truth movement. At the very least, I am sure The Shell Game will reach some people who were previously unaware of the issues around 9/11. Hopefully, though, it will be a massive bestseller.

Thanks GW

Thanks for interviewing the author and posting here. His statements remove any skepticism or ambiguity regarding his point of view.
This book will at very least, drive the Truth one step deeper into the collective social consciousness.
It is definitely on my must read list.

Thanks for the interview

Also, can anyone describe any of the evidence he covers?

He says he likes Loose Change, which can mean that he enjoyed it but got the facts better, or that he advocates some of the same hoaxes, like 'swapped planes' in Pennsylvania and 'cargo plane' at the WTC.

Does he get into the physical evidence much, or just foreknowledge / cover-up?

Oh . . . I just looked at the review on the Barnes and Noble link. Here's what it says the book is about --

A reviewer, A reviewer, 11/17/2007

In 2012, 'centrist conservative' David McKuin is the President of the United States. However, much of the secretive centralize controls gained after 9/11 are gone following the excesses of his predecessor President Bush. Thus they cannot do what they feel is needed to keep Americans safe take out Iran and its radical fundamentalist leadership and insure reelection of an at war president. --- However, some of his Neocon advisors believe a 9/11 sting needs to occur so once again they can centralize power and provide security to the American people. They concoct a plan to have the Feds nuke an American city and hold Iran culpable. Energy guru Ace Futrell wants to know who killed his wife as he thinks it was government agents. He soon uncovers the scheme to use a nuclear strike to attack Iran and to strengthen their power he plans to expose this horrific American tragedy. --- Except for those who believe President Bush directed the 9/11 attack, this thriller is over the stratosphere of plausibility sinister Feds planning to nuke an American city and believing they can not only hide the attack but blame Iran seems unreal in spite of some recent slam dunk CIA revelations. Still conspiracy buffs will appreciate the exciting action-packed thriller especially those on the extreme right as Hilary was the latest Democrat to lose to a sound bite conservative while the Middle East country building contingent find neo con work with reengineering Iran starting with blowing up an American city. --- Harriet Klausner

He does

not get into physical evidence (that I remember).

The book is mainly based on Michael Ruppert's Crossing the Rubicon. It stresses war games, stand down, false radar injects, etc.

Great News.

I hope this does better than "Blow The House Down" by Robert Baer did. I was a little disappointed in that book to tell you the truth. This one sounds a lot better.

Media censorship of 9/11 truth

There's definitely media censorship of 9/11 Truth -this fictionalized version could be a way around it.
The CBC, for example, has never followed up on the 9/11 Conspiracy TV story they did about two years ago.
{However last night ,on The National newscast, there was a tiny crack in the void.
When their 'At Issue' panel started to talk about "Future Newsmakers", the cameraman zoomed in on a guy in the front row. On the guy's shirt - '9/11 was an Inside Job'
On this link:
It's 22:57 in.}
(I started cheering at the TV lol!)

We should pre-order this on

Pre-ordering this book on will help with its sales and publicity. Of course I hope that the book will be a worthwhile read, so it's not a waste of money! Anyhow, if enough people pre-order it, it will show up nicely in the rankings and be more visible to the mainstream. So ... please help get the suggestion out.


Thanx for adding the amazon link. All I had to do to pre-order was enter email and password and it's done.

Art May Be the Key unlock the truth for people to see...

URGENT 9/11 Truth Action: New York Times Best Selling Author's

Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers Demanding a New 9/11 Investigation,

Today we have an amazing opportunity, if we work together, to launch 9/11 truth into a new mainstream American paradigm.

In the formation of the global 9/11 truth movement there have been landmark moments that catapulted this truth movement forward:

* Mike Ruppert's early work with and his crucial early research (which got me in this)
* The first national truth conference, formed by Carol Brouillet/Ken Jenkins in San Francisco
* The formation of after that conference
* The dissemination of the "Stop the 9/11 Cover Up" signs to groups nationwide (911visibility)
* David Ray Griffin's earth shaking work
* Professor Steven Jones physics research
* Kevin Ryan’s blowing the whistle on inaccuracies of UL’s report to NIST
* The release of Loose Change, which exploded the movement
* The "Eleventh Day of Every Month" Campaign
* The release of
* We Are Change’s national television exposure on 9/11 truth issues
* The release of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,

Today, we have an opportunity to explode 9/11 truth issues into the mainstream mind, in the form of a soon to be released popular action fiction novel by New York Times Best Selling Novelist, Steve Alten ( If we can get 30,000 copies of this profound novel purchased in the first month of its release, we can drive it to #1 on the New York Times best seller list. The 9/11 truth movement can do this, if we ALL push for it to happen.

Why is this such an incredible opportunity?

1) It is written by a New York Times Best Selling novelist - He's established an "adopt-a-writer" program, that has connected him with hundreds of english departments/teachers in high schools all across America and donated many copies of his book to US troops overseas, with a huge audience there.

2) Americans love action fiction (which "The Shell Game" definitely is)

3) The publisher has already purchased prime display space in the front of Barnes & Noble and Borders stores for its release

4) The author's webmaster is now creating a website for the book's release that will include major 9/11 truth websites, youtube video links, and recommended non-fiction reading on 9/11 (DRG, Ruppert, etc.)

We, the undersigned, urge everyone seeking truth, peace and justice, to not only purchase this new novel, "The Shell Game," but also to email out this appeal to all you know who seek truth, peace and justice in the form of 9/11 truth coming out. In turn, please urge them to do the same with all their contacts and urge them to do the same. We can break 9/11 truth open if we work together and focus on this project for the next 30 days.

Yours in 9/11 truth, peace and justice,

This should be a post of its own


You point about driving this book onto the NY Times Best Seller list should be highlighted in a post of its own, which should then be disseminated across as many 911 Truth sites as possible asking people to buy this book.

New York City Activist's leaflet to be distributed in reference to the NEW YORK CITY 9/11 BALLOT INITIATIVE:


Fear, Loathing & the Crisis of Confidence
by: David Sirota

In my new nationally syndicated column out today, I explore the root cause of America's anger at our federal government and the growing embrace of conspiracy theories - trends displayed in recent Scripps Howard/Ohio University studies. It is not just a reaction to fear in the age of terrorism, but is a more fundamental crisis of confidence in our public institutions....

....To be sure, many of these specific conspiracy theories are absolutely offensive. For instance, there is absolutely no proof that 9/11 was an "inside job" [Bad link] with government officials actively helping the attack - and those who push this myth without facts +There+are+MOUNTAINS+of+evidence+permanently+recorded+on+the+WWW.+See+the+rest+of+this+newsletter+for+a+sampling+of+it.+We+invite+Mr.+Sirota+to+do+a+few+columns+on+THAT!+Got+the+courage+for+that,+David.?+We+hope+so.+ should be met with scorn. However, the media is also mislabeling some very clear facts as "conspiracy theories." For instance, it is not a "theory" that government officials knew of Osama bin Laden's growing determination to commit a domestic terrorist attack against the United States nor that terrorists were looking to crash airplanes into buildings. Those are just historical facts - not conspiracy theories....



9/11 Truth movement Is Growing a Progressive Wing

[Excerpt from Forum:]

For people who are not much in touch with the ongoing PROGRESSIVE ORGANIZING all over the country, here are what I (and I think most progressives) see as top priority (aside from elections):

1. Grassroots campaign for PUBLICLY FINANCED POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS at all levels of government. Sound hard? It is: but there is already great progress toward this in Maine, Arizona, Portland OR, and elswhere, and a grassroots groundswell for it. Also can be googled as VOTER OWNED ELECTIONS.

2. ENDING "CORPORATE PERSONHOOD." There are books and articles on this, and several organizations who've been working on it for a long time.
There is on the web a good book on this general subject, which can be read/printed online: GANGS OF AMERICA by Ted Nace. (The gangs being the corporations.)

Email Action

Send the following email to everyone you know, so that even people who get all of their news from msnabcnnfox, which censors 9/11 information, get a dose of truth. There are almost 100 million people who have already woken up to at least some of the truth about 9/11, so we can spread this message virally . . .

9/11 Truthers are Nuts!

Or are they?

Let's take a look:




Iraq war veteran and experienced demolitions expert blows the cover on 9/11 inside job:

Meet Torin Wolf. He has a broad and varied background as a US Army Combat Nurse during Operation Iraqi Freedom....

....The presentation moves on and goes through some of the just plain crazy theories of why the towers fell, such as space beams, holograms, missiles, orbs, pterodactyls, etc., and easily debunks them. Torin then adds, "There is evidence most of these are put out by the government as disinfo." Then explains how the White House, in violation of the law, has bought 28 billion, "Billion with a B" in fake news.

"But the craziest, most truly unhinged conspiracy theory for the towers falling on 9/11?" Torin asks rhetorically. "Fire." The official story cannot be recreated by any experiment. NIST is the government agency involved in attempting to model what happened to the world trade center on 9/11, and they fail horribly....


[Your Tax Dollars (and super termite?) At Work?]

9/11 Inside Job Smoking Gun Video

If tens upon tens of firefighters, paramedics, and EMT's said in late 2001 and early 2002 that they saw flashes at the base and middle of the Twin Towers and heard multiple explosions "like gunfire" immediately prior to each towers' collapse, would you listen? Can you look at the evidence with fresh eyes? No disinfo or sloppy logic here...

This can go viral with your help.





The 9/11/01 attack was a complex psychological operation carefully designed to conceal the truth, in spite of numerous obvious red flags in the fraudulent official story. As such it relies on the dissemination of memes that overpower rational consideration of the evidence. One of the most important memes is the idea that all people who question the basic tenets of the official story are loony conspiracy theorists, whose ideas are not worthy of consideration. Part of the construction of this meme was to make the attack so audacious that even a straightforward accounting of the basic facts sounds too outrageous to possibly be true.

The ideas that the Twin Towers were destroyed by explosive demolition and that top-level administration officials were involved in the planning and execution of the attack are so painful that most people reflexively reject them, even if that means ignoring mountains of evidence. Nevertheless the perpetrators run the risk that these ideas will gain currency and begin to be examined with some objectivity if the loony conspiricism meme fails to maintain its hold.


An effective tool for reinforcing the loony conspiricism meme is the introduction of theories that that have no basis in evidence, such as the idea that no planes hit the towers. The association of these ideas with the careful research of investigators in the 9/11 Truth Movement stands to set back the cause of awakening the larger public to the facts of the attack.

"The entire upheaval could last from 2009 to 2016, but if "we the people" strive hard, it could end sooner. When things are at their worst, greatness springs from the resilience of the human spirit. It is for us to turn the near-term adversity into lasting bliss. We will have to persevere in order to open a new chapter in the ever-flowing spring of civilization. Our success is assured, because history is about to repeat itself: after the downfall of the American business empire will come a global golden age."

Excerpts from the 2007 book:

THE NEW GOLDEN AGE The Coming Revolution Against Political Corruption and Economic Chaos
~~by Ravi Batra

"Batra has set the standard for economic analysis."

"Dr. Batra writes about his subjects as clearly as if he were telling bedtime stories."
-The New York Times

....THE BIG QUESTION NOW IS, what is in store for us...? My answer, coming in the midst of numerous omens and forebodings, will surprise you: we are headed toward a golden age, which will come after a tidal wave of public fact-finding and a subsequent voter's revolution. Unfortunately, there are rough times ahead as we tackle the social, political and economic ills of our time, but then the electorate will vote for those who favor unprecedented economic and political reform. So good times will follow bad, but the end product will be so wonderful that we will gradually forget the bad. We will come to view our struggle as the price we had to pay to rid the nation of the malaise, corruption and injustices that plague us today....

....The United States does not export much, but it does export ideas, which today mainly emit hedonism and materialism. A new standard exalting martial qualities and magnanimity will soon replace the currently dominant American ethos. It will also sound the death knell for tricklism, which is creating povery around the world. America's revolutionary ideas will quickly captivate the globe; they will spread like wild fire and eradicate poverty within a generation. The Internet will make sure that the American renaissance spreads its fragrance all over the planet. Verily, for the first time in history, there will be a global golden age.


9/11 Truth Movement Fights Back Against DISINFORMATION and AGENTS PROVOCATEURS

Hoffman: ....Very entertaining to watch, very vivid, just lurid — it's ridiculous. It's all just completely concocted, he makes it sound like you, and Wolsey and these people that he’s saying are COINTELPRO just popped up in the last year is just an utter lie. I think it’s a really good test of whether people are really in this in the benefit of our movement: are going to tolerate this sort of thing? Where are the voices of the alleged leaders of the 9/11 truth movement about this and similar incidents? I think the silence from some quarters is deafening....

Regarding Peak Oil

GW - Hubbert's Curve was hotly debated within the oil industry for years before U.S. oil field data proved it correct. The application of the curve to the world's fields then produced the hotly debated target dates for world Peak Oil. No one knowledgeable within the industry questions the concept of Peak Oil, they just dispute the date ranges.

It is important to keep in mind that it take millions of years of geologic activity to produce oil and only a few decades to locate it and pump it out.

Sources inside Iran and Saudi Arabia have leaked word that their fields are all in decline, there are no known super fields left to develop. A simple confirmation of the condition of the Saudi oil fields is their inability to raise production significantly to offset supply drops from other sources (notably Iraq) for almost 10 years. It is also worth noting that Iraq contains some of the largest known deposits that remain undeveloped. One could conjecture that the 10 years of sanctions on Iraq was primarily to delay the development of these fields, turning the peak of Peak Oil into the wobbly plateau that we are now in, and give U.S. and U.K. oil and oil services companies a chance to wrest the Iraqi contracts away from French and Russian companies, which has, in fact, now happened.

Peak Oil is very real and if we don't reduce our overall energy demand growth and shift to alternatives, its impact will hit sooner and harder than most will be ready for.

I am of the opinion that the 9/11 operation was designed specifically to address the confluence of Peak Oil and the anticipated collapse of the Soviet Union, both of which were known in elite circles by the mid-1970's. 9/11 created a new global strategy of tension to replace the Cold War and provided an excuse to surround and/or occupy the last remaining significant oil fields on the planet.

A peaceful and sustainable future is possible, but only if we make a serious commitment to change now.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

I am of the same opinion


I think you describe what 911 and the geopolitical situation is about about as well as it can be said. It is really as simple as being about oil, but those making the decisions feel the need to be deceptive about it since they do not believe the average person would support their plans and causes. Ala, 911 was needed along with stolen elections to ensure they could achieve their aims without interference.

Alternative Energies are viable, although not without some pain in the transition. I think the problem is that those controlling oil and its production in the United States did not want to feel any pain or at least wanted to put it off until it is inevitable. To do that they were willing to inflict pain on others via the 911 treachery and the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
