I really appreciated this book - it was a meticulously researched, well-reasoned critique of the government's official story. This book put into words what I suspected since that awful day - that the official government story made absolutely no sense. It doesn't matter that none of the other "conspiracy theories" make any sense either. What matters is that the government had an obligation to provide the American people with a valid, reasonable, logical explanation of how such a horrible tragedy ...more

The real inside job, the most destructive one, is the control of the US media by covert intelligence agencies. Even if one were disinclined to delve into "Project Mockingbird," "The Mighty Wurlitzer," etc. (representing, to be sure, the tip of the iceburg that has long ago punctured our listing ship of state), the outlines of Control can be clearly be seen in the coordinated ad hominem, fact-challenged smear pieces that Griffin debunks in this book. One can almost detect a single editorial voice ...more

A friend of mine is a 9/11 conspiracy guy so I thought that I would check this book out. I read the Popular Mechanics book first and found it to be very lacking in substance. This book does not have that problem. This book loads the reader with tons of facts and references that provide ample evidence to put Popular Mechanics and the official story into doubt. An interesting read, no matter what you think about the whole situation.

This book seriously changed my life. It's an exaggeration but I feel like I connected to it because I'm always questioning authority and this book does that. It strengthen my soul to know that such beautiful arguments exist. I love this book. It's a must read for anyone who is interested in proving others wrong.
Apr 23, 2015 Cyndi rated it it was ok
I think I was expecting a little bit more. This book was written like a magazine article and for good reason -- the author is from Popular Mechanics. It felt like he just took a bunch of his articles and strung them together for a book. This book isn't that long and one would think there would be alot more conspiracies to de-bunk than what was written. Some it of it was long-winded like he felt he had to explain in great detail why the conspiracies are not plausible. I'm not a conspiracy theory ...more

Tne mind of David Ray Griffin against the Pentagon, the State Department, the CIA, Homeland Security, the FBI. He takes them all on and wins in this astonishing display of his reasoning powers.

Awesome book and supported by so many facts. Unfortunately ignorance is bliss and when you have the media who is eager for a headline story any uneducated idiot can pull what they want from the details of an event and say only what they want to say to prove their point. Science is science and facts are facts. Ignorant idiots should be placed back under the rock they came from since they refuse to educate themselves with ALL of the facts and truth.

Griffin does a terrific job refuting the 9/11 "findings" of the Popular Mechanics "de-bunking" book, as well as the 9/11 Commission. My eyes did glaze over some during the highly technical discussion of the World Trade Center details, but only an absolute, complete, diehard Administration loyalist could come away not accepting that the "official" story is nowhere near the truth, the whole truth and nothing-but-the-truth.

Recommends it for: morons.
Recommended to Phil by: myself.
My first foray into David Ray Griffin was quite enthralling. Kind of makes me want to read the 9/11 Commission Report, and other documents he sought to debunk. Minimal knowledge on the topic is required to follow along.
This book was difficult to get through because of the paranoid and scattered style in which it was written. I found the documentary "Loose Change" to be a better summation of the truth movement's arguments.

Another David Ray Griffin gem. An excellent book to keep for reference when evaluating 9/11 debunker claims.

some mindBlowin shit! an excellent intro to the convoluted topic of state-sponsored false flag terrorism.

if Griffin left out all his quips and jabs, the book would be half its length and hold more power.
