9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press

3.95 of 5 stars 3.95  ·  rating details  ·  37 ratings  ·  6 reviews
In 9/11 Contradictions, David Ray Griffin shows that the official story about 9/11 is riddled with internal contradictions. Two contradictory statements cannot both be true. These contradictions show, therefore, that individuals and agencies articulating the official story of 9/11 have made many false statements. Congress and the press clearly should ask which of the contr ...more

Sigh...I tried to avoid the conspiracy theory side of 9/11 for as long as I could, and this book purports not to be advancing any conspiracy theories at all. In fact, the author, a professor emeritus of philosophy, gives definitions of "conspiracy" and "theory" in order to make his case. Still...serious conspiracy theory stuff here, along the lines of the government, FBI, and military trying to cover up their own incompetence. I agree that there are 25 major contradictions within various 9/11 na ...more

Click here if you want to read all the thoughts i’ve bothered to type up so far (too big to fit on Goodreads).

I’d need to write a book to express everything i have to say about 9/11 Contradictions. In that sense alone, it’s worth my time and almost worth 3 stars. But i've given other books 1 star because because of poor writing & i could give this one 1 star because Dr G's efforts are occasionally suspect. I give it 2 stars, though, because i can't believe Dr G was dishonest, because i could

Why are there so many contradictions surrounding 9-11? How can the 4 main figures in charge of defending the US - Dick Cheney, GW Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Gen. Richard Myers (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) - all have radically contadicting accounts as to where they were and what they were doing during the crucial moments of 9-11? Why doesn't mainstream press report on any of this? Read this book and walk through the critical elements of the 570+ page "The 9-11 Commission Report" and why ...more
Holy crap, if anyone can read this and not DEMAND that we somehow, some way get to the truth about 9/11, well, just stick your head a little deeper in that sand, why don't you?

Easy to follow, and of course I skipped to some of the questions I had (the giant plane and the tiny hole in the Pentagon? And how did Ted Olson's wife call him from the plane if 757s have no phones? And there is no cell record of the call, and at the time of the alleged calls, the plane was 25000+ feet and cells wouldn't
Nothing but well documented contradictions presented calmly while exposing discrepancies between the various published recollections of some of the major players in the events of that day.

Griffin avoids controversial evidence and leaves aside questions, so says conventional wisdom, that only an Expert may answer (e.g. matters of physics, demolition, etc.).

Extremely informative and I don't know how anyone can read this book and then not realize The 9/11 Commission is flawed in many ways. And sadly the questions asked in this book will probably never get answers.
