A monstrous State Crime,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed (Paperback)
In his 10th book on the 9/11 massacre, D.R. Griffin presents himself once again as a courageous intellectual, who doesn't betray his moral principles in the face of an immoral hegemonic oligarchy.
He summarizes the blatant lies and contradictions in the official version of the 9/11 massacre, the retractions and denials of former statements by witnesses and the revision of the timetables. He also gives possible new clues about the events.
He discusses mainly the straight-down free-fall of the three towers (while only two were hit) as well as the Pentagon attack, which destroyed mainly its accountancy department. The latter was examining a hole of 2.3 trillion dollars in the Pentagon books. All the records were destroyed.
9/11 and its consequences
9/11 was an inside job involving many branches of the government and dozens of powerful people. The evidence planted in the attacks served to make it appear that they had been carried out by Arab Muslims.
The massacre had very serious consequences. Internationally, it `justified' the `War on Terror' against Muslim nations and the direct military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia. Nationally, it provoked an assault on the US constitution and on democratic civil rights.
9/11 and the `free' media
The media all over the world (continue to) conceal the extremely bitter truth. Nearly the whole Academy and Religious Institutions worldwide stay mute. For the author, the reason for this could be twofold. On the one hand, an evil deed like this is so heinous that it seems `highly unlikely that the government would do anything nefarious on a scale of this epic nature.' On the other hand, as Upton Sinclair has said (quoted in this book), `it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.' In this context, journalists even endorse miracles.
But, for reasons of morality and justice it is essential to get the 9/11 lie exposed openly and not only on Internet.
D.R. Griffin's book is a damning verdict and a must read for all those who want to understand the world we live in.
