“With the apparent election of George Bush as President, the likelihood that we will ever find the truth about 9/11 becomes even more remote,” says Mark Dunlea in Will the Peace Movement Pursue the Truth About 9/11? “It is certainly not going to come from the federal government, where Bush, Congress, Republicans and Democrats, CIA, FBI and the foreign policy establishment all clearly share in some of the culpability for the deaths.”
Author and theologian David Ray Griffin is not about to let any of them rest easy. He has just released his second book on the inconsistencies of the 9/11 event.
His first book, released in March 2004, The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, explores the failure to anticpate, much less respond in a timely manner to the 911 disaster… A Zogby International poll released in fall 2004 found that half of New York City residents – and more than 40% statewide – agree with Griffin that the Bush administration knew about the 9/11 terrorist threats beforehand but failed to take action to prevent it.
His latest release, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions And Distortions sets out to prove in a meticulous fashion that the 567-page report, “simply cannot be trusted.” He reveals details like the fact that fire has never before brought down a steel framed building. The melting point of steel is nowhere near the maximum heat of a hydro-carbon fire. The 47 massive steel columns that anchored the entire structure were ignored by the 911 Commission.
You can hear David Ray Griffin speak about his investigation of the investigators on April 18, 2005 at 8 PM in Madison at 2650 Humanities UWM.
“In this masterful sequel to The New Pearl Harbor, David Ray Griffin unveils a disparity between official 9/11 “spin” and independently researched 9/11 fact so glaring as to suggest the possibility of a constitutional crisis unlike anything our country has ever known. In this new study, as in its predecessor, he simply details the hard, cold evidence that seriously–and alarmingly–challenges the independence, impartiality, and thoroughness of the 9/11 Commission. For anyone serious about combatting terrorism, let alone upholding constitutional democracy, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, is a must read.” –Burns H.
