Book Description

6 May 2004
Taking to heart the idea that those who benefit from a crime ought to be investigated, here the eminent theologian David Ray Griffin sifts through the evidence about the attacks of 9/11 - stories from the mainstream press, reports from abroad, the work of other researchers, and the contradictory words of members of the Bush administration themselves - and finds that, taken together, they cast serious doubt on the official story of that tragic day

5.0 out of 5 stars The shocking truth about 9/11 20 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Having previously read several books about the 9/11 attacks, I was much looking forward to the release of David Ray Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor. Having now read this book, I consider it the definitive book on the September 11 attacks and the many unanswered questions that surround them.
Griffin manages to cover all of the key concerns that have been raised in other books and Web sites that examine the events of 9/11. For example, why weren't the attacks prevented in spite of repeated warnings that the U.S. received in the months beforehand? Why were FBI agents blocked from investigating the men who later became the hijackers on 9/11? Why did the standard procedure of sending up fighter jets to intercept off-course planes fail to occur successfully four times in a row on 9/11? Why did the president continue with a relatively trivial appointment to listen to some schoolchildren reading, in spite of knowing that the first WTC tower had been hit before he entered the school? The list of questions goes on.
Griffin even examines some of the more controversial claims made by critics of the official 9/11 story. For example, was it really Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon? Photos taken that day appear to show damage far too small to have been made by a Boeing, and the lawn in front of where the plane is meant to have hit appears intact, with no scorch marks or signs of gouging.
Griffin is braver than most in his ability to examine these questions in a balanced and rational way. He presents a strong case for a far more in-depth investigation of the attacks of September 11 than those that have so far been conducted.
Anyone who cares about peace and democracy ought to read this book.

Read the other reviews, and particularly the editorial reviews and quotes. As many have said this book ought to be read by any sentient individual who cares at all about 9/11.
Like most, I have previously completely dismissed the conspiracy theory nonsense of 9/11. But then I chanced upon this book, and because of the testimonials from intellectual heavyweights and other respected people (including a respected Member of Parliament in the UK), I wanted to know more about it. In it's favour are the following points:
1. Griffin is no consipiracy theorist, far from it. He starts out by saying he too completely dismissed such nonsense until a very sane and eminent respected friend of his suggested he look into the subject.
2. In the later pages of the book, he suprisingly second guesses all his earlier assertions, and looks at them from the point of view of the supporters of the official account of 9/11. He asks of himself "Am I actually talking rubbish?" and then conclusively proves that he is not.
3. Finally, all he's asking for is a full independent inquiry into 9/11. That's it. He's not being anti-Bush or advocating bringing the Administration to it's knees. All he's saying is: here's the actual, recorded, undisputable facts about 9/11, here's the official account of 9/11 (which has changed significantly over time), why are there such huge and worrying differences between the two?
So, yes, read this book. And I very strongly recommend a look at Into the Buzzsaw: Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press by Kristina Borjesson (you can look inside on to understand exactly why you haven't already heard this stuff in the mainstream media.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blessing in disguise 9 Feb 2006
This book is based mainly on the analyses of Nafeez Mosadeqq-Ahmed, Thierry Meyssan and Michel Chossudovsky.
It reveals and questions some very disturbing facts about the 9/11 attacks: the collapse of the WTC-tower 7 without being hit, the non-interception of the planes, the cancelling of travel plans by top Pentagon officials, the missile attack on the Pentagon, the buying of put options on airline companies in the stock market ...
For the author, there are only two possible conclusions: 'our government and military leaders were either incredibly incompetent or criminally complicit.'
In his foreword, Richard Falk quotes D. Rumsfeld who called the 9/11 attacks 'a blessing in disguise'.
A blessing for those who benefited mightily from those attacks: the Bush Administration, the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon, the oil and weapons industry.
The attacks provided a perfect justification for the massive US defense budget and the tremendously juicy margins on military contracts. They provided also a perfect alibi for the launching of a geopolitical war of conquest as the author excellently explains by his analysis of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
Amid a muzzled and paralyzed press, the author expresses ultimately only one request with this balanced book: a thorough investigation of what really happened. But this seems now only wishful thinking.
This book is a must read for all those interested in world affairs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Non-Fiction Book I Have Read in Years 17 Aug 2004
I have been buying books, CD's and DVD's off Amazon for years and that fact that this is the first book I have actually been moved enough to write a review is comment in itself. If Amazon would let you award 6 stars, I would have given it to this.
I have read a few books on the subject of 9/11 before (mostly by Michael Moore and such like) and, whilst they have offered a different perspective to Bush administration version of the event, they have always had pre-formulated opinion and comment by the author in question rather than an independent presentation of fact. This is a bit annoying if you don't always agree with some of their sometimes odd opinions.
It is David Griffin's completely factual approach that makes this book so compelling - namely the information is presented in black and white and it is up to you to make your own mind up. The facts that he has discovered (which are seemingly in the public domain) are simply mind-blowing - I was in a state of shock during certain chapters. You will not be able to put this book down - it took me only a day and a half to read it.
Rather than analysing his detailed and balanced work, critics of people like David Griffin will suggest that he is a crackpot conspiracy theorist. However, his work is presented in a classical academic style and is based purely on facts and independent, expert opinion - at no stage does he offer his own beliefs or politics. Critics would also offer the suggestion that his arguments show the greatest lack of respect to the 3,000+ who died that day. However, it is precisely the opposite - this book seeks to find the truth to what happened that day out of utmost respect for the victims and their families.
