Product Description

Synopsis

An attentive observer of international affairs, Meyssan was intrigued by the anomalies in the first photographs released of the attack on the Pentagon on September 11th 2001, then by the confusion and contradictions in official statements, including some about events at the World Trade Center. As a result, he carried out his own investigation, which lead him from surprise to surprise. Meyssan challenges the entire official version of the September 11th attacks - claiming that the Pentagon was hit, not by a plane, but by a guided missile fired on the orders of far right-wingers inside the US government.

After the shock had warn off, my first question was 'How did even one plane get through the most sophisticated air defence system on the planet?' Then WT7 collapsed (like another controlled demolition) without being hit. In the meantime we heard 'conversations' from mobile phones at 20,000 - 30,000 feet, which even I knew were impossible with mobiles at those heights; & the conversations were so depressingly wooden, as if the callers were on drugs & reading a script. Meyssan's book covers all this & gives more details. A comprehensive covering of the shameful events of that day & more insight into the utter ruthlessness & soullessness of the people who are running world events from the safety of the most powerful country in the world. Some of these people are so evil they make Hitler look like a choir boy.

I first came across this book by Thierry Meyssan in May 2005; I could not put it down until I had read it all!

The key points in this book are that the huge explosion at the Pentagon was not caused by a plane crashing into it and which was due to the virtual impossible logistics of how a plane of that size and with such a wide wing span makes a crack on the building which is at least 50% smaller that the size of the plane.

I found the book to have some interesting information on the build up to 9/11 and the background on Mohammed Atta and mention the investigation into anthrax letters. The other points raised by Meyssan on the heroin trade in Afghanistan as being the main reason for the war in the region.

After reading this book, I was convinced that the events of 9/11 were not as the US government had said and that there was more going on than meets the eye to the extent of suggesting that it could have indeed been an 'inside job'.

An excellent investigative account by Thierry Meyssan and a must buy book to gain an insight to some of unanswered questions of what really happened during 9/11 events!

As a 16 year old the atrocities of 9/11 in New York were the biggest and most terryfying act of destruction I have witnessed, and living in England it apperaed to me we were getting a one sided story from the media. Thierry however, gives other possibilities as to why and how this disaster occured. I found he gave an alternate answer for questions and claims I had and i'm sure many others did. However, he did tend to stray with technical and irrelevant language making certain chapters too long and drawn out. In this book Thierry never says his story is correct and he never attempts to understand nor agree or disagree with the happenings on 9/11 but he does give the reader a chance to make their own minds up and I found this book thoroughly intriguing and a good read.

This book may (i repeat MAY) show a valuable insight into 9/11. This is a very well layied out and thought through book and he lists every single source of information. Later on in the book it goes back 10 years or so into the past of Bin Laden and the Bush family and there bussiness relationship. Definatly a must read.

I have been researching September 11th, the London bombings and British terror operations in my own country, Ireland, for many years, and this book is near the top of my list for research and reference.

The people who gave this book poor reviews appear to be ignorant to the facts of the day and would change their tone if they did a little research.

Another good book is "Painful Questions" by Eric Hufschmid, also sold on Amazon.

Format: Paperback
Besides the version of the facts proposed by Thierry Meyssan which can leaves the reader septic, although it is more logical than the one given by Washington, the elements brought here cannot leave us inflexible, as for example the testimony of the lieutenant Vreeland to the Canadian authorities on AUGUST 12TH, 2001, which contained a precise description of the attacks such as they occurred 1 month later. Obviously independent, we have to recognize the quality of the information here condensed, among which some very rare although they are essential to understand these events. Thierry Meyssan goes of revelations to revelations, quoting for every assertion his sources which each can reach. Every sentence bases itself on facts, and the author never flares up in silly reasonings, although they're horrifying. Far from the catchy title obviously advertising, it's a TRUE SERIOUS work of investigation which goes much further to wonder whether yes or not, this plane was crushed on the Pentagon... Don't buy the book for the Pentagon Plane Crash thesis, there are only 20 pages about it. This part is much more detailed and convincing in the last Thierry Meyssan's book "Pentagate". "The big lie" is however essential and still the best book about the Attack.

Format: Paperback
Forget the majority of this book. The first few pages suffice - the simple fact that we have never seen one piece of aircraft wreckage at the Pentagon site must raise some horrifying questions. How did a 38m wide aircraft disappear into a 19m hole? Where are the wings and engines? Where is the tail plane? Hundreds of people should have clearly seen the aircraft as it came in low into the side of the Pentagon yet noone seems to have found any! I have searched the web for Pentagon pictures of that day and the more I see confirms what TM is saying. We have been told a monstrous lie. The next question is why?
