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's Foreword to "America in Peril"

(Bob Aldridge, the author previously of First Strike! The Pentagon's Strategy for Nuclear War, has a new book out; America in Peril. The foreword is written by David Ray Griffin, and Griffin has supplied the text for visitors here to see. -rep.)

Bob Aldridge’s America in Peril is a wake-up call for Americans. Several such wake-up calls have been published recently. But this book is different.

Aldridge not only points out that many developments since 9/11 have moved us toward fascism; he also discusses in detail these post-9/11 developments---such secret detentions, military commissions, extraordinary renditions, torture, the loss of habeas corpus, the Patriot Act, extraordinary military spending, unprecedented government secrecy, and unprecedented claims for presidential authority---all in the name of “national security.” He also shows how the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan have been justified on the basis of 9/11 and demonstrates that these wars and most of the other developments are in line with neoconservative ideology, which 9/11 allowed the administration to turn into official policy.

Aldridge’s book is distinctive because, besides highlighting all these things, he resists the standard explanation, even among left-leaning thinkers, according to which the Bush-Cheney administration simply took advantage of the shock created by the 9/11 attacks. Rather than portraying these attacks as merely good fortune from the point of view of the Bush-Cheney administration, Aldridge comes right out and says what millions of Americans---including growing numbers of architects, engineers, pilots, scientists, and former military and intelligence officers (see the Patriots Question 9/11 website) believe---namely, that the 9/11 attacks were planned and carried out by this administration, precisely for the sake of putting its preestablished agenda into effect.

Report on Brussels Presentation from Dr Eric Beeth

Yesterday evening I attended the Film + debate evening organised by the Euro-Parliamentarian Giulietto Chiesa, together with Yukihisa Fujita, David Ray Griffin and the makers (Paolo Jormi Bianchi, Thomas Torelli, Francesco Trento and Franco Fracassi) of the documentary film “ZERO - Inchiesta sull’11 settembre”.

Excellent movie, produced thanks to an enormous investment of time and money by the film-makers, and out of pocket donations from a very large number of citizens wanting the truth to shine forth. It deserves a wide distribution, hopefully also to a world-wide television audience.

It complements NuoViso.de’s “Unter Falscher Flagge”, which can already be seen on google-video with English sub-titles. The film “Zero” interviews many military and intelligence experts, some who I had not been listening to before. A highlight of the film is the wonderfully happy face of Dario Fo (1997 Italian Nobel Prize winner in Literature) who through-out the movie comments on certain known facts with his logic that should be grasped by the humanity loving child within each of us.

We all have way enough proof that the whole “Al-Qaeda” hype and “War on Terror” is a fraud. We must not tolerate these “McCain-like” synthetic-terror-mongering false paradigm messages in our media. It is long overdue that we speak out as citizens, and not only in internet forums. For example, we can picket the media during “11th of the month” actions.

Yukihisa Fujita stressed the importance to continue to increase the political and cultural weight of the growing amount of credible allegations by responsible people in all walks of society. Although the US State department is irritated that European media and political institutions are more and more deeply questioning the “OFFICIAL MYTHformation” of the “War on Terror”, in the end, the US will be most inclined to change its ways only when the American people themselves inform themselves better on the full depth of the criminality and “false flag” deception of its current rogue administration. This is something that will not magically disappear by electing an “Obama”. The whole media and political institution needs a full renewal before it again can deserve the trust of us American citizens.

Cell phone calls at high altitudes on 9/11

Dr. Griffin,

David Ray Griffin Speaks to Big Tucson Audience

David Ray Griffin addressed a crowd of about 180 people in Tucson on Thur., Feb. 21 in Tucson at St. Mark's Presbyterian Church before heading to Phoenix to speak to an even larger audience the next day. His Tucson lecture was centered on the concept of nationalistic faith and it's power to blind and suppress critical thinking. The lecture was full of detailed recitation of the contradictions that undermine the official account of 9-11. Griffin's newest book [9-11 Contradictions....] was discussed and he promised an updated "revisited" version of his best selling [A New Pearl Harbor]. Antigone Books was on hand to vend copies of Griffin's books and they sold out of [Debunking, 9-11 Debunking] before the book-signing was over. Not surprisingly, the event was ignored by the corporate mainstream media and by most of academia at the University of Arizona. We thank David Ray Griffin for giving us an exceptional lecture in Tucson and we are especially grateful for the support we (911TruthTucson) got from members of AE911Truth, WILPF, Raging Grannies, Veterans for Peace, and DFA.

David Ray Griffin: When did Cheney enter the underground bunker?

9/11 Contradictions: When Did Cheney Enter the Underground Bunker?

by David Ray Griffin

With regard to the morning of 9/11, everyone agrees that at some time after 9:03 (when the South Tower of the World Trade Center was struck) and before 10:00, Vice President Dick Cheney went down to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC), sometimes simply called the “bunker,” under the east wing of the White House. Everyone also agrees that, once there, Cheney was in charge---that he was either making decisions or relaying decisions from President Bush. But there is enormous disagreement as to exactly when Cheney entered the PEOC.
