David Ray Griffin's New Book: 9/11 Contradictions

Below is an announcement emailed out about the new book.

"No matter how you feel about who is responsible for the 9/11 attack, at least we need a thorough, independent, unbiased investigation. In this book, Griffin provides 25 useful questions--contradictions worthy of honest answers."

---Jim Hightower, author of Swim against the Current and editor of The Hightower Lowdown

“David Ray Griffin, writing specifically for members of Congress and the media, has presented the often incredible but true details of 25 major contradictions in the Bush administration’s accounts of 9/11. This book, based on careful research but written in a fast-moving, readable style, blows apart the notion that The 9/11 Commission Report presents an accurate account of what happened on September 11. It makes crystal clear the need for a new investigation.”

---Bill Christison, former senior CIA official

“When the smoke finally cleared from the pile of rubble on September 11, 2001, we were left with a host of burning questions. The 9/11 Commission did not provide the answers, despite their extensive mandate. 9/11 Contradictions is a work that needed to be written. With characteristic clarity and focus, David Ray Griffin masterfully lays out the most critical of these questions. Now the challenge is to finally get real answers.”

---Lorie Van Auken, widow of Kenneth Van Auken, killed at WTC 1 on 9/11/01, and member of the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission

“David Ray Griffin is America's bulldog on 9/11. His demand that the amazing contradictions in the story be explained resonates with millions of people.”

-—Paul Craig Roberts, former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal and assistant secretary of the US Treasury during the Reagan administration

“So who cares that the 9/11 Commission chose to believe that Dick Cheney did not enter the White House bunker until “shortly before 10:00, perhaps at 9:58,” twenty minutes after the strike on the Pentagon? Surely the vice president would not fib, so the Commission threw out the testimony of several eyewitnesses, including Norman Mineta, the transportation secretary. Mineta must have been making it all up when he testified that he joined Cheney in the bunker at about 9:20 and heard Cheney reaffirm an apparent stand-down order just before the Pentagon was struck. Such conflicting testimony is typical of the many serious ‘9/11 Contradictions’ documented in David Ray Griffin’s highly readable book. We need a truly independent investigation to put Cheney and Mineta under oath, along with the still unidentified ‘young man’ who, Mineta reported, kept coming into the bunker and, after telling Cheney ‘the plane is ten miles out,” asked him whether ‘the orders still stand’---about 12 minutes before 125 people in the Pentagon were killed. What were those orders?”

---Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst and presidential briefer

“Because the 9/11 attacks became the excuse for myriad disastrous changes in U.S. foreign and domestic policy, unraveling the true history of those events is the paramount exigency of our times. By virtue of pointing out an astonishing number of irreconcilable contradictions in the official story of 9/11, David Ray Griffin’s 9/11 Contradictions is a must read, not only for the Congress and the press, but also for any American concerned about the truth, because those contradictions suggest that we have not yet been told the truth about 9/11.”

---David L. Griscom, research physicist, Fellow of the American Physical Society, retired from the Naval Research Laboratory

“This book describes in very straightforward and non-technical terms some major inconsistencies in the government’s official story about the events on September 11, 2001. It points out many attempts in the 9/11 Commission’s report to cover up evidence . . . . As an engineer, I am especially troubled by the cover-up of evidence relevant to the collapse of the three major World Trade Center buildings. I hope that Congress and the public will heed this call for a full and impartial investigation to determine what really did happen on that fateful day.”

---Jack Keller, Emeritus Professor of Engineering at Utah State University and member of the National Academy of Engineering

"The Congress and the press may not pay attention, but this scholarly yet accessible analysis is must reading for Americans concerned about good government and effective democracy. Every reader will reach the only logical conclusion: 9/11 truth is not yet known."

---Joel S. Hirschhorn, former official at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment and author of Delusional Democracy: Fixing the Republic Without Overthrowing the Government

“According to St. Timothy, ‘God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.’ In 9/11 Contradictions, David Ray Griffin, demonstrating once again what a fearless spirit and powerful mind can do, shows the official account of 9/11 to be so riddled with contradictions as to be essentially worthless.”

---Catherine Austin Fitts, assistant secretary of housing in the George H. W. Bush administration

Incisive narrative

This sounds like a much needed concise format for beginners, as well, a consolidation of thought and focus for the experienced researcher / activist.

thre's no need..........

What is needed is to get a honest prosecutor and start making INDICTMENTS.

Without Doubt.

Dr Griffin's books are among the best out there.

He is without question one of the best authors we have on 911 Truth.
The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

The Clarity of "Contradictions!"

IOW, the contradictions about 9/11 make it crystal clear that we need a real investigation. It also provides a track to run on for journalists and politicians to pursue these issues based on the conflicting official narrative ITSELF.

No more excuses for the press!

I'm going to buy a bunch.....

All my friends and family are getting one. DRG is one of the best 9/11 writers, very easy to read and understand and right on target. This book needs to be driven to the top 10, wouldn't you all agree? Let's do it.

Availability in book stores?

Are Griffin's books being sold in ordinary book stores in the USA?

Ive bought all my DRG books

Ive bought all my DRG books at
Barnes and Noble. So you should
find some there.


Somebody in his neighborhood please carry a copy over to Bill Moyers.

This sounds like an orchestrated campaign!

The Book

9/11 CONTRADICTIONS: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press
By David Ray Griffin

Product Description
In 9/11 Contradictions, David Ray Griffin shows that the official story about 9/11 is riddled with internal contradictions. Two contradictory statements cannot both be true. These contradictions show, therefore, that individuals and agencies articulating the official story of 9/11 have made many false statements. Congress and the press clearly should ask which of the contradictory statements are false and why they were made.

This book is purely factual, simply laying out the fact that these internal contradictions exist. As such, the book contains no theory. Politicians and journalists who deal with the issues raised herein, therefore, will not be giving credence to some "conspiracy theory" about 9/11. They will simply be carrying out their duty to ask why the official story about 9/11, arguably the most fateful event of our time, is riddled with so many contradictions.
