We have far too much preaching to the converted and not nearly enough putting the boot into the opposition. Barrie Zwicker's book is a perfectly justifiable investigation of a conspiracy - yes, that's what it was, folks - by definition - for which not one person has ever been convicted of direct responsibility in a court of law. Which takes care of the nonsense spouted by reviewer Clio - that nothing in the book would stand up in a court. When the lying moron in the White House - worse than the last one - gets around to putting Khalid Sheikh Muhammad on trial, a mere twelve years later, and gets him convicted, then we can get the legal facts established. Until then, in the absence of convictions, theories and deduction are all we have, folk like Clio are no better informed than the rest of us, and they can shove their half-baked drivel where it belongs. So can Godzilla, to whose "too-many-folk-would have known" argument there is, as an instant rejoinder, the example - among others - of the Manhattan Project to build a US atomic bomb. Tens of thousands, dozens of labs, total secrecy, never leaked. In two words, Godzilla, belt up. You have nothing to contribute to this debate. Have any of you clowns one single argument against 9/11 scepticism that isn't based on blatant dishonesty or crass ignorance ? Go on, impress me - if you've got the guts. 9/11 was an inside job - that's the most rational interpretation - and Zwicker is quite right to draw attention to the complicity of the media. These scum know perfectly well who did it - and that's another rational interpretation. Deduction, not theory.

Do not take any notice of the one-star reviews here. Once again the determinedly blinkered brandish the word "conspiracy", using it like a club, to close down debate. I'm not here to tell you what happened on that day. I wasn't there. I can only form an opinion for myself through comparing the arguments, sifting through the written and spoken evidence and applying my own common sense. Many reading this will already be familiar with the uncomfortable facts which point to an inside job [or at least an incident which was allowed to happen] and there's no reason to go through those again, so let's take a look at the common sense approach which every one of us can apply for themselves.
The glaring inconsistency which we are all being asked to swallow by those who accept the official version of the truth is that THREE buildings fell to the ground within their own footprint at freefall speed. The tops of the first two towers, where they were hit, did not fall off. They fell down completely, including one which wasn't even hit by a plane, as if there was no structural skeleton to resist that fall.
Now you're either wearing a bucket on your head or you've got to admit that there's something very wrong here. Decide for yourself. Read the book. It's worth examing the story in a bit more depth.

There are many good books, films, and websites whose aim is to raise 9/11 awareness, but this book is the only one I know of to go in depth into the media cover-up of so much surrounding 9/11. There's great material here on the "left gate-keepers," the methodology of psy-ops, and so much more. The book is indespensible, and Zwicker has done a tremendous public service in putting it together. If you already know the basics covered by people like David Ray Griffin and in films like 911 MYSTERIES, which by the way is fantastic, don't make the mistake of dismissing this as covering the same old ground.

The mass media's complicity in hiding the truth about the events of Sept. 11 is something tangible because it is on the record, except in those cases where the electronic media make the record disappear from their archives.

This book is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the manipulation of the media in the USA and the UK. Anyone who has any doubts about what really happened on 9.11 should read this book!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 27 October 2006
This is another excellent book about the 9/11 massacre.

After reading it, it is extremely difficult not to believe that it was an Inside Job (MIHOP).

Because, cui bono? 9/11 was fabulously profitable, not only for put option writers with their stunning foreknowledge, but in the long run for the merchants of death, the arms industry.

If it was an inside job, then 9/11 (as was the murder of JFK) is a clear indication that the US is ruled by a parallel invisible government. For the author the heart of this invisible government is the CIA.

9/11 would then be a false-flag operation, as there have been so many before, but a particular brutal one. It was a pretext for war (Iraq, Afghanistan) and for a drastic reduction of civil liberties (Patriot Act).

This book also exposes the criminal silence of the media, which are held in a stranglehold by the military, industrial and intelligence communities. As ex-CIA chief W. Colby said: `the CIA owns everyone of any major significance in the major media.'

This book contains a remarkable DVD, excellent historical information, e.g. the fascist Butler conspiracy in the 1930s, and presents in depth portraits of courageous researchers of the truth.

A must read for all those interested in the future of mankind.

Zwicker has put together a very thorough and detailed record of the events around the 9/11 disaster and has also encompassed other major events before. I consider myself to be fairly open minded and I must say this book certainly leaves you feeling very much media manipulated and simply fodder for the people in charge. Possibly the single most amazing fact is the destruction of world trade centre building 7. Untouched by the attacks and some distance from the twin towers (and surrounded by other buildings) it quite simply collapsed. Alongside that there's the change of ownership of the trade centre buildings shortly before the attack, the lack of a plane wreck and the very small 'hole' in the Pentagon and the creation of the perfect opportunity for America to continue it's aggression in the middle east and afghanistan. When you consider Iraq, the debacle of the weapons off mass destruction and its huge oil reserves and Afghanistan with its now pipeline link to pump natural resources from the north to ports in the south it's all worked out quite well for the Americans. I don't consider myself a conspiracy believer but this book has certainly helped me understand the manipulation of public opinion and how events may have been triggered to allow governments to act with the backing of its population. An very well put together book and paraphrased in DVD form, i'd recommend it to anyone interested in the subject or workings of the political psyche

Many prospective readers might think, "Oh no, not another piece of conspiracy theory", but this is a serious "journalist's-eye-view" of the tragic events of 9/11. Zwicker eloquently puts forward his case that this was a carefully-planned and executed military operation, and documents the slavish support of the mainstream media for the "official version" of the events. He has, along with other prominent campaigners after the truth, given himself a difficult and thankless task, in the face of media censorship and opposition.

There are many disturbing similarities between the 9/11 case and the JFK affair, and Zwicker picks up on this well. He adds weight to the suspicions of many people that a "false flag" operation was involved on 9/11.

I've got to admire Zwicker and his fellow campaigners like Dr David Ray Griffin, Michael Ruppert and Webster Tarpley (all of whose work is covered in this book). They are sincere in their desire for public opinion to be heard, and to act on the public's behalf. These people have moved up a notch or two, the public's desire for the truth to be told. Surely the days of "either you are with us or you are with the terrorists" have long gone.

The book is well illustrated and is not too heavy a read at just under 400 pages. The profiles of the various personalities involved are well put together and not too long and drawn out. The inclusion of a DVD also makes it excellent value for money.

Highly recommended for serious students of the 9/11 affair.

Having read a great many of the books about 9/11, I have to say that Towers of Deception really gets to the nub of this murderous crime. Why are all the mainstream media outlets so desperate to keep the lid on this horrendous crime when clear analytical evidence to the contrary is staring them in the face. You can't necessarily trust the CIA to tell you the truth (assuming they know the meaning of the word) but perhaps William Colby - past head of the CIA - was right when he said "..the CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media..".

The American public - and the rest of the world - have been lied to so often by their government that they are clearly unable to recognise the grossest errors in the stories that they are fed. Wake up America!

Author Mark Twain wrote "A lie can make it halfway around the world whilst the truth is still putting its shoes on"

This absurd conspiracy theory about a Government cover-up to justify the war in Iraq is nothing more than a spin off by the so called 'truthers' minority movement in the USA. Many Americans hate to accept the fact that their homeland security prior to 2001 was a complete shambles which made them highly vulnerable to terrorist attacks. Thank goodness today they have the best homeland security in the world.

Any person with a semblance of common-sense would understand that to carry out such an undertaking in such detail would mean the combined silence of thousands of everyday US citizens and employ thousands of government employees and traitors with Al Qaeda sympathies to make this happen. Crikey, even Osama Bin Laden admitted many times that Al Qaeda alone were responsible for carrying out this attack.

To believe that this attack was all a government conspiracy has the same credibility as identifying Jack the Ripper after 120 years. Utter nonsense.
