Debunking 9/11 Debunking
With four previous four books on the subject, Griffin is a veteran investigator and writer on the event of 9/11 and is
recognized as one of the leading spokespersons of the 9/11 truth movement, which rejects the official story and its conclusions. Although this movement was ignored or played down for a long time by government sources and the mainstream media, recent surveys have shown that rejection of the politically correct line has become widespread, which has provoked the appearance of a flurry of stories and reports, notably Debunking 9/11 Myths, published by Popular
Mechanics, and articles in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, and Time magazine aimed at debunking the skeptics. As the somewhat tortuous title states, this book takes a stand on presenting the case that these attempts can themselves be debunked. A good compilation of arguments and sources, including 61 pages of references, for those who've been having growing doubts. And maybe for some who haven't.
"As Griffin aptly notes, 'the assumption that conspiracy theories are inherently irrational' has recently taken root in American culture, making any attack on the official government record instantly dismissible, but Griffin takes to the difficult task with solid reasoning and true zeal. All but the most dogmatic readers will find Griffin's evidence-from the inconsistencies between NORAD tapes and the 9/11 Commission Report to rigorous exploration into the physics of the collapse-detailed and deeply unnerving. For instance, Griffin considers the fact that firefighters were told, five hours before the fact, that building WTC 7 was going to collapse, despite 'the fact that WTC 7 was not hit by a plane, that the
available photographs show no large fires, and that fire had never caused a steel-frame high-rise to collapse."

"David Ray Griffin's Debunking 9/11 Debunking is a superb compendium of the strong body of evidence showing the official US government story of what happened on September 11, 2001 to be almost certainly a monstrous series of lies. Tragically, the entire course of US foreign and domestic policies since that date has grown out of these almost certain falsehoods. This single book could (and should) provide the basis for the United Nations International Court of Justice, or some specially constituted global body (independent of the US) to investigate with highest priority, and publicly report its findings about, the charge that unknown elements within the US government, and possibly some individuals elsewhere closely allied to the US, caused or contributed to causing the events of September 11 to happen."

"Until we get a complete, honest, transparent investigation--not one based on 'confession' extracted by torture--we will never know what happened on 9/11. David Griffin will never let this go until we get the truth."
-- Robert Baer, former CIA case officer and author of See No Evil and Sleeping with the Devil.
"Considering how the 9/ll tragedy has been used by the Bush administration to propel us into immoral wars again and again, I believe that David Ray Griffin's provocative questions about 9/ll deserve to be investigated and addressed."
-- Howard Zinn
