Shattering confirmation of the unbearable truth about 9/11,
This review is from: New Pearl Harbor Revisited, The (Paperback)
With Canadian troops committed for years to combat in an unwinnable war in Afghanistan , based on a disruption that did not occur in our own country, and defending no known Canadian interests in central Asia, the leading advocate of a new inquiry into the 9/11 events now publishes further damning evidence of a false-flag deception by the Canada/U.S. military-industrial complex.
David Ray Griffin applies his lucidity, his logic and his reasoning to meticulously assembled evidence. The result is another compelling narrative that turns the official, corporate-media conspiracy theory inside out, revealing it to be a web of systematic deception by the hubristic military-industrial complex and its political delegates, the unelected Bush gang.
Grffin began his denunciation in 2004, more than two years after the events, but his ensuing campaign has borne out Kipling's lines: "If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too. If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same . . . Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it."
Griffin's inexorable logic has won over thousands of the intelligensia, until such a large segment of the U.S. thinking population is sceptical, without any representation on campuses, in government or the media, that the U.S.A. seems to be locked in cognitive dysfunction, with Congress and the military-industrial complex simply ignoring public opinion and riding roughshod over the populace.
The October 2008 so-called bailout of the U.S. finance industry, almost unanimously opposed by the American public, costing nearly a trillion dollars for one Congressional bill alone, has served to further smother two salient facts about 9/11: big bets were laid by financiers before the events in order to make a profit (although they were never collected, or investigated); and the Pentagon could not account for $2.3 trillion dollars of expenditure (as admitted publicly by Defense Secretary Rumsfeld on Sept 10th, 2001).
Griffin points out that the main target of the Pentagon bombs (and possible aircraft impact) on 9/11 were the Pentagon's accounting computers, which were destroyed along with their records.
He also notes that the demolition of Building Seven at the World Trade Center (at 5:20 PM EST) destroyed the records of the Stock Exchange Commission and Salamon Brothers bank --- along with other high-powered offices including the U.S. Secret Service, the C.I.A., and the New York emergency bunker. The Stock Exchange Commission at the time is believed to have held much of the documentation around Enron, the business corruption case that came dangerously close to the affairs of George W. Bush, who was closely associated with the company when he was governor of Texas. So close, that the boss of Enron paid for W's Presidential election party.
Those who are just awakening to the unbearable truth about 9/11 as a result of the fantastic corruption exposed in 2008, or as a result of the exposure of the Bush administration's deception over the pretext for an invasion of Iraq, should read this book now.
Those who already have The New Pearl Harbor on their bookshelf should buy this update to find further new and convincing evidence of the urgent need for a new independent inquiry to replace the Kean/Zelikow White House cover-up published in 2004.
What's needed next is an urgent investigation of the role of Canadian NORAD in the 9/11 deception, if any, and of the implication of those Canadian members of the continental military-industrial complex who have profited hugely from the resulting massive augmentation of the largely secret Canadian military budget and the military adventure in Afghanistan.
