Product Description


The thesis of Webster Tarpley's "911 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA" has been enthusiastically received with its working model of the 9/11 plot - a rogue network of moles, patsies, and a commando cell in the privatised intelligence services, backed by corrupt political and corporate media elites. Buttressed by historical examples like the Baader-Meinhof Gang and the Gunpowder Plot, this model makes it clear how such a monstrous false-flag or self-terror exploit is possible even under a largely benign government. That paradox is the incredibility gap that has made most Americans reject the evidence about 9/11 as paranoid fantasy. Tarpley brings decades of expertise to the 9/11 issue. Already in 1978 he had exposed the terrorist Red Brigades as patsies of Italy's fascist P2 shadow government, and 9/11 is on the same pattern. The forthright subtitle, "Made in USA", is backed up by an analysis of key figures who behave like moles working for the rogue network or parallel government. "9/11 Synthetic Terror" highlights the salient points of sheer physical impossibility of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory.

It then analyses the psychological traits which make Anglo-American society gullible to artificial enemy images and unable to grasp the truth of 9/11. Understanding how synthetic terror works, we see the weakness of the muddled "blowback" theories of terrorism and the spurious leads to Pakistan or Saudi Arabia that have marred many critiques of 9/11. Tarpley's model makes it clear that figures like Osama bin Laden are patsies or double agents who were selected for their ethnic colouring as the basis for launching a "Clash of Civilisations," and it is absurd to imagine that such tools of US intelligence agencies could turn around and infiltrate or overwhelm US defences unaided. "9/11 Synthetic Terror" is also firmly grounded in Great Power geopolitics. It shows that the wars on the Islamic world, the Soviet-Afghan, Kosovo and Chechen conflicts, as well as US-UK-NATO synthetic terror incidents like 9/11, Beslan or 3/11 in Madrid, have been contrived to continue the Cold War, in pursuit of the centuries-long campaign for Anglo hegemony over Eurasia and the world. For a principled refutation of the 9/11 propaganda myth in all its parts, Tarpley's work is indispensable. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

With the publication of the Report of the Commission to Investigate Terrorist Attacks upon the United States (also known as the Kean-Hamilton Commission after its chairman and vice-chairman), the pattern of cover-up and incompetence on the part of the officially constituted investigative agencies of the United States Government is complete. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh how deep the rabbit hole goes. 26 Mar 2008
Holy Frack!

This is the third book I have read about the events of September 11th, and it is easily the most thought provoking. I picked it up because I have read Webster Tarpley's expose on George Herbert Walker Bush and it was referenced in Jim Marrs 'The Terror Conspiracy'.

Drawing upon past terrorism groups and actions (and their troubling ties to various western intelligence agencies incl NATO Intelligence) - in the domestic US and mainland Europe in the 80's and 90's - Tarpley presents a remakably credible series of events that point to a rogue netwotk inside both US and UK Intelligence agencies as the hand behind 9/11. This is not a conspiracy theory, but careful analysis of the men and beliefs of the hidden arms dealers that saw the light of day during Iran/Contra and other scandals going back to the Bay of Pigs.
Their documented modus operandi is then compared to the horrible and spectacular attacks on the WTC and the very odd strike against the Pentagon (hitting the Army Appropriations Archives no less; perhaps a clue to the $2.3 trillion missing in the Pentagon). The behaviour and very un-islamic habits to the alleged 19 hijackers and their apparent mole-handlers are exposed for all to see while you marvel at the ability of certain FBI and CIA people to stop the warnings from field agents and surveillance to go anywhere.

One of the absolute "hot potatoes" of 9/11 is the fact that there apparently was a threat against the President on Air Force One, and the plotters phoned their threat into the White House with knowledge of daily security codes for both the President and his airplane. For some reason, this prompted an extended telephone conversation between Dick Cheney and President Bush, presumably related to the plotters and their terms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top drawer material that's essential reading 20 Sep 2010
This book is worth every cent spent. To be read with David Ray Griffin's works. Between the two writers you will be taken on a scary ride but this subject is not easy. If you have not read anything on it yet, read Griffin's "9/11 and American Empire" first, then the much under-rated "The New Pearl Harbor REVISITED".
Please note that there is a shill reviewer who gives all 9/11-truth books and DVDs a one star grade and a lousy review. If you look at his other reviews he only reviews two distinct series of items, but he looks at every single item published or pressed and gives the same negative review every time, knowing his one star will affect overall ratings and mean five stars are impossible, even for a deserving book or DVD. He is obviously a shill reviewer, working for someone, maybe government or another agency, who want these books' high reviews down-graded. Best way to counter him is to make a five star review of this and other 9.11 items now. Even better, buy one or two of these books and see what he's been paid to badly review. Check out Mark Gaffney's "Mystery Plane" and Paul Thompson's "Terror Timeline" for other meritorious works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Reality Surreal! 5 Oct 2009
It all comes down to this: "How can we be sure Webster's claims are true?", indeed a very good question since readiness to doubt is the essence of reason itself. BUT: This principle cuts both ways unless it's just exploited to ward off inconvenient ideas. In fact, with every page you turn you will ask yourself with ever-growing anxiety: "How can I be sure that this guy is not wrong?" Moreover, bypassing the whole question about the veracity of Tarpley's assessment: Even IF this book's scenario wouldn't apply to our current political situation, it most definitely shows how our democracies CAN be destroyed from within. Hence this work, with all its abundance of political scholarship, experience and wisdom, deserves to be read by EVERY concerned democratic citizen. The events unfolded by Tarpley are so utterly monstrous they recall a scene in "Matrix" where "Morpheus" tries to convince Neo that the world is in reality the Matrix. All of us, particularly US-citizens, should very carefully consider the fact that their country has already turned into a police state, that apparently one million (!) (as to March 2009) of their fellow citizens are on the "Terrorist Watch List" ("No Fly List"). George W. Bush, by his own grace, granted the American President dictatorial powers should certain circumstances arise he himself defined, namely "... any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." (original quote from "NSPD 51"). Even Adolf Hitler depended on the German Parliament to grant him similar powers through the "Enabling Act" in 1933. Bottom line: the stage is set for the next 9/11 to bring martial law. Crazy stuff, isn't it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading. 15 April 2009
By Barry G
Webster Tarpley is courageous in this no holes barred expose of state sponsored terrorism. It is essential reading for anybody & everybody with legitimate questions surrounding the events on 9/11. It is too easy to be labelled a conspiracy theorist by people who don't fully understand the events of that fateful day. Common sense should tell you that we are not being told the whole truth and this book covers all the bases, but more importantly it goes back in history to explain to sceptics how in our recent past, governments and their agencies have used terrorism as a cover to further their own agendas. Any book that covers such an emotive subject needs to be insightful yet also respect the victims and their families and I feel Webster Tarpley has achieved this. His writing style manages to convey detailed analysis of the facts yet not intimidate or bog down the reader with a heavy and oppressive writing style. Highly Recommended.
