If there is only one book you read about the 9/11 controversies, this work provides the best summary of the essential themes, issues, facts, and questions concerning the tragic events of 9/11.
The Essence of September 11th engages the issues surrounding 9/11 from a very different perspective -- namely, that of a member of a hypothetical grand jury which is faced with the task of critically examining the available evidence concerning all manner of 9/11-related topics in order to determine whether or not a further public inquiry into 9/11 is appropriate and necessary.
The Essence of September 11th takes an in-depth look at the very heart of the many controversies swirling about 9/11. These issues range from the response to 9/11 by the FAA, NORAD, and the FBI, to the 9/11 Commission Report, as well as the various technical theories put forth by NIST, FEMA, and different scientists and engineers which purport to explain how the Twin Towers and Building 7 collapsed or which supposedly account for what transpired at the Pentagon on 9/11. In addition, a very careful analysis is pursued in conjunction with a book pubished by Popular Mechanics entitled Debunking 9/11 Myths.
Seeking to walk a line between aligning itself with either the government's own 'official' conspiracy theory or the many versions of conspiracy theory that are not 'official,' The Essence of September 11th avoids getting sidetracked with irrelevant considerations such as trying to identify guilty parties and attempts, instead, to focus strictly on an impartial analysis of the evidence in order to determine the essential features of 9/11.
Many questions are raised in The Essence of September 11th. The only certain answer which arises out of the pages of this book is that, after careful review, the available evidence indicates the government's 'official' version of 9/11 is not tenable in either principle or detail.
Soon there will be a new blog and website dedicated to the book The Essence of September 11th as well as the issues surrounding, leading up to, on, and following the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Within a few days, this book will, God willing, be available in e-book form and in about a month in non-virtual form. Please check back for further updates in the coming days.
