Product Description


The official story about 9/11 is discredited. That is the sobering conclusion reached by millions of Americans, all across the political spectrum, who have sifted through the evidence uncovered by hundreds of independent researchers. Many honest citizens are now forced, with sadness and reluctance, to make an almost unthinkable inference: Powerful US officials must have had foreknowledge of the planned attacks, and then acted from the inside to: thwart efforts to prevent 9/11, remove or cover up criminal evidence, and hamper inquiries into what happened. Were the horrific events of September 11, 2001 truly an inside job? This book will help you decide for yourself. In this work, world-renowned conspiracy theorist Jim Marrs makes a compelling case that 9/11 marks the intersection of several conspiracies at once, each based on overlapping political agendas.

Support for his thesis comes from this sampling of the many disturbing anomalies, cited by Marrs: Standard air defence mechanisms systematically failed, simultaneously; Interceptor jets were scrambled too late, too slowly, and from the wrong locations; President Bush proceeded with a 'photo op' long after he knew we were under attack; Fires could not have caused the free-fall collapse of the World Trade Center towers; The collapse of Building 7 in the complex was later admitted to be a demolition; Vital physical evidence was either removed or has never been released to investigators; Key officials claimed warnings never came, despite massive evidence to the contrary. This is the definitive journalistic account of the hidden role of the Bush administration in failing to prevent the 9/11 attacks. The author provides heavy documentation of his findings, plus extensive appendices that include perspectives from families of 9/11 victims, and excerpts from the RICO Act lawsuit filed by 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani.

Hi, i have just finished reading this, and enjoyed it to a certain degree. Its starts out well, with good critique of the official version of events. About half way through though it gets really bogged down (i feel!) in too much detail regarding the FBI, CIA, and who has links to which secret organisation (which dont seem to be very well kept secrets!). Whilst the author deals with interesting questions eg. were the buildings brought down by explosives, were the planes remotely controlled, he doesnt really delve into these questions enough for my liking. Most disappointingly, there is no great denouement where he tells you what he has come to believe is the truth. Instead, you get about 60 pages of Appendices which are not especially interesting. This last part of the book felt to be a cheap way of making the book longer. There are far better books than this out there. Indeed, nearly all of them are!

I agree with the previous reviewer. Whilst I have enjoyed other books written by Jim Marrs this one seems more than anything an attempt to cash in on the tragedy. Don't bother with it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Conspiracy or Idiocy? 10 Jun 2005
By J. Farley - Published on
Mr. Marrs has done it again. An exceptional examination of the various parties involved in 9/11.

Whether you believe that the government was complicit in 9/11 or not, the facts speak for themselves:

* NORAD failed our nation multiple times, NORAD lied about how quickly fighters were deployed.

* The Pentagon does not appear to have been hit by a boeing airliner (and if it was, why won't the FBI release the videos they have? They made us watch the towers over and over again, ad infinitum). If the plane never struck the Pentagon, what happened to it and all the people on it?

* Silverstein, the owner of the World Trade complex, admitted on video to having 'pulled' (construction term for demolished) building 7. He made millions off of the insurance money for the towers. Why has he not been investigated? Who does he know?

* Firefighters repeatedly reporting hearing bombs explode in the towers. Local university seismographs depict seismic activities corresponding with proposed explosion times prior to the towers collapsing much too perfectly.

* Rumsfeld has since slipped on 2 occassions indicating that flight 93 was actually shot down.

* Marvin Bush, the youngest Bush child, was the security head for the World Trade Centers but left his post on September 8th. Why? What did he know? Just another one of the numerous coincidences surrounding the characters involved here. Why no mainstream media coverage of this?

* The quick FEMA clean up of the rubble and dispursemnt to China against the NYC Fire Department's chief's pleas to allow fire experts to examine it. (Why, what is FEMA hiding?)

* 4 non-Arabs arrested at the George Washington bridge morning of 9/11 with explosives. Why have we never heard of this story again?

* What about the put options traded on both American and United weeks prior and days before 9/11? Why no investigation of this by the CFR led 9/11 Commission? Why no SEC investigation?

* What do the black boxes say?

* How did the "terrorists" passports make their way to the streets of New York unharmed after crashing and burning into the towers? Were they planted? Was the Koran they conveniently found in a rental car in the airport with the hijack plans? Give me a break! This is so staged its ridiculous!

* If the towers were so hot, to melt steel as never seen before in the world of building fires or the world of science, how come there are picture after picture of people looking out the holes cause by both airliners? How hot was it really?

* Bush said on 2 public occasions that he watched the first plane strike prior to speaking to children in a class in FL. How? No cameras (outside of the French film which turned up after 9/11) were filming until AFTER the first hit. So who in his group knew to have a camera on the first tower so he could see it going down before the rest of us?

* If the "terrorists" were mostly Saudi Arabian, why have we not attacked Saudi Arabia? Can you say oil? Can you say Bush family business ties. Can you say American economic dependence?

It goes on and on and on. These are all facts. And many leave one wondering. Too many holes, too many lies, political cover ups in the name of National security, etc.

Again, Jim Marrs brings the truth to light. Maybe some day facts will replace half truths and media blackouts. Yeah, and maybe pigs will fly out my butt! Pigs flying - must be a conspiracy, right?

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-documented analysis of the 9-11 events 15 Sep 2004
By Jed Shlackman - Published on
Jim Marrs is a veteran journalist who isn't afraid to examine topics that are suppressed by institutions of power. In this book, Jim joins the growing number of authors who have challenged the official tale of the events of September 11, 2001, making the case that the evidence points to the attacks being an inside job. The motives, methods, and plans are all presented for the reader, incriminating those in power in the USA. Nearly 3 years after the attacks, Jim Marrs has collected much information [most of which can be quickly found on the Internet on websites of the many independent researchers of 9-11 and related shadowy activities]. One would have to create a very bizarre and improbable conspiracy theory to attempt to deny the main assertion Marrs presents in this book. Jim Marrs deserves credit for collecting the available research and presenting it coherently for the public to examine. Marrs book has garnered the praise of persons such as John "Men Are From Mars" Gray and Catherine Austin Fitts, the whistleblower who has been a victim of those who she once served as assistant housing secretary in the Bush Sr. Administration. Hopefully, more public figures will soon begin to acknowledge the criminal nature of our leaders and encourage the public to reclaim control over the country from the existing power structure. Until then, enjoy books like this one and let the mainstream media folks know that they are merely acting as press-titutes when they spout "official" tales rather than reporting what really happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars "IT'S DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN" 10 Jan 2005
By STEPHEN T. McCARTHY - Published on
When the Constitutional Convention concluded in 1787, it is reported that Benjamin Franklin was asked what sort of government the Founding Fathers had crafted, and Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it." Turns out we couldn't! Most Americans are unaware of the fact that their country has degenerated into an oligarchy.

I remember watching a live TV news broadcast of the September 11th event when a retired Air Force officer called in to the station and asked how it could be that nearly an hour after the first hijacked plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center, the skies over Washington D.C. still had NOT been secured, thus making the Flight 77 attack on the Pentagon possible. "It starts already," I thought to myself. What had started already? The suspicion; the weird anomalies; the missing puzzle pieces; the unexpected behavior and the odd lack of expected responses to an emergency of this kind. In short, signs of The Conspiracy manifested early on and were evident to the rare citizen with unusual political acuity.

Few citizens realize that Insider complicity is not only imaginable, but to be expected. It's not like we've broken new ground here! The sinking of the Lusitania which helped to embroil U.S. citizens in the unpopular World War I and the bombing of Pearl Harbor, forcing them into the equally unpopular World War II served as the template for September 11th and its subsequent "War On Terror" in the Middle East. It's deja vu all over again (quoting that immortal yogi, Berra.)

'INSIDE JOB' brings together so many of the unaswered questions surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and presents them in a very sensible and earnest manner. Naturally, those American citizens who have the audacity to raise these serious questions, and worse yet, expect REASONABLE answers from their government representatives, will be dogged by those Americans who interpret this as being "unpatriotic." Never mind; 'INSIDE JOB' raises the pertinent questions, even if it can't definitively answer them :

* Why was President Bush not immediately whisked away from the elementary school where he was speaking when it was known that hijacked planes were in the air and his location was public knowledge?

* Why are a number of N.Y. firefighters convinced that the WTC towers were brought down by strategically placed bombs, and not the steel-melting inferno that has been "sold" to the public?

* Why did Condoleeza Rice lie and say that an attack of this nature was unimaginable when it can be shown that our Intelligence agencies had information many years in advance which indicated that just such an attack was being planned?

[*2005, Feb.1 ADDENDUM: In 1995, the Manila police uncovered an al Qaeda terrorist plot to hijack commercial airliners and fly them into American buildings. The plan was code named "Project Bojinka" and the World Trade Center was specifically mentioned as a target. This information was turned over to U.S. Intelligence authorities. You wouldn't learn this from a person who reviews the book after reading only 20 pages of it, because this information is located on page 55. Of course, 6 years later "Project Bojinka" is carried out, and now some high-ranking American authorities are telling us that the possibility of such an atrocity was unimaginable. Sure!]
[*March 25 ADDENDUM: While I can't speak to the other issues he raised, with all due respect to Mr. Negley, an airliner attack on American landmarks including The World Trade Center WAS conceived by the "Project Bojinka" conspirators. See 'The New American' magazine, Vol. 17, No. 23, November 05, 2001.]

These are just 3 of the many very relevant questions that our government officials have failed to address satisfactorily. You'll find the others in 'INSIDE JOB'; the staggering amount of them will catapult you out of your comfort zone.

While 'INSIDE JOB' presents many nagging questions and points out the great discrepancies in the "official" version of the 9/11 events, the reasons for these will make little sense to the casual reader until he or she has gained a real understanding of the Big Picture. To that end, I likewise also highly recommend 'THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND' by G. Edward Griffin; 'NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON: 25 YEARS LATER' by John Stormer; and 'ORIGINAL INTENT' by David Barton. You may also wish to check out my Amazon guides, 'So You'd Like To READ THE CONGRESSMAN'S CONFESSION ABOUT THE NEW WORLD ORDER' and 'So You'd Like To SEE THE NEW WORLD ORDER IN BLACK & WHITE.'

Since I opened with the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin, I'll also close with it : "Those who are willing to sacrifice their freedoms for a measure of security deserve neither." I guess he means us, huh?

5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminates the cracks! 1 July 2005
By Tim Johnson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this illuminating and insiteful book and, although it trolls through waters fished by other writers, I still found the book an excellently written investigation into the myriad contradictions so apparent in the official investigation into the events of 9/11. I was impressed with the mountain of media gathered by Maars from sources around the world demonstrating that there are questions being asked by people far removed from the immediacy of Washington's Beltway. I find it unbelievable that any reasonably well read and well informed person could dismiss the factual material presented by Maars and other writers because the complete scenario is so believable. There are people who hold strong beliefs that their vision of the future is the only "right" one and that any action that leads to that conclusion is inherently "good" for the masses that don't have the brains to understand the overriding concept in the first place. As Maars relates in section 21, the American people, and many of my own Australian people, want to believe in the "good" so they will allow the erosion of long-held rights in order that this "good" will eventuate.

There are many scary bits in this book and perhaps the scariest are in section 18. It is bad enough to think that corporations play puppet master to the Empire but to think that other countries are so powerful that they can pull the strings of the Leviathan makes for disturbing reading.

I think Maars is right and it scares the hell out of me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 25 Feb 2006
By Xander Xavier Xymox - Published on
This was second book I bought 9-11. The first being The New Pearl Harbor by David Ray Griffen. I personally perfer the New Pearl harbor over this since I liked the way it was organized. This is still a really important book. He added some good eyewitness accounts from survivors who heard explosians on other floors as they were evacuating. The one particular thing that I had a hard time accepting from this book is the remote control theory. But than again it is only theory from him that doesnt effect all the other evidence. And finally there are a lot of detractors for books like this. Their arguments are usually vague like saying that this is a bunch of lies. Occasionallly they will quote some expert who agrees that the buildings could have been downed by the planes. They still cant answer bigger questions like why the planes were allowed to hit there targets. How the petagon which has Andrews Airforce Base 10 miles away with planes on standbuy 24/7 was not used. Instead interceptor jets were scrambled from I think Otis airforce base. And finally why has there never been a video of a plane hitting the pentagon? The media showed the NYC attacks a thousand times. The only surviving video that wasnt confiscated by the FBI that morning only shows 3 frames. None of the frames show a plane hitting the pentagon. Anyways when someone emerges that can explain all this away than I might change my mind. In the meantime every documentary of the official version I have seen is only reinforcing what the alterantive media is already saying that 9-11 was a INSIDE JOB!
