Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 2004, David Ray Griffin published his landmark book The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11, which became a founding text of the 9/11 truth movement, presenting what was then the most thorough critique of the official story available. As new developments occurred, Griffin continually brought the discussion up to date in his subsequent books. Now The New Pearl Harbor Revisited synthesizes the most important points of these previous studies and updates his seminal work with a chapter-by-chapter analysis of evidence that has emerged since 2001 and his own developing thinking on the subject.

Review:

"Author and professor Griffith (9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press) knows his work is referred to by officials and the media as conspiracy theory, and he has a rebuttal: 'the official theory is itself a conspiracy theory.' In this companion volume to 2004's The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, Griffith provides corrections, raises new issues and discusses 'the two most important official reports about 9/11,' the 9/11 Commission Report and the National Institute of Standards and Technology report on the Twin Towers, both 'prepared by people highly responsive to the wishes of the White House' and riddled with 'omission and distortion from beginning to end.' Griffith addresses many points in exhaustive detail, from the physical impossibility of the official explanation of the towers' collapse to the Commission's failure to scrutinize the administration to the NIST's contradiction of its own scientists to the scads of eyewitness and scientific testimony in direct opposition to official claims. Citing hundreds, if not thousands, of sources, Griffith's detailed analysis is far from reactionary or delusional, building a case that, though not conclusive, raises enough valid and disturbing questions to make his call for a new investigation more convincing than ever."

Book News Annotation:

In 2004's The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11, Griffin (co-director, Center for Process Studies, Claremont Graduate U.) compiled and summarized the body of questions raised by "the 9/11 truth movement" that cast doubt upon the official government narrative about the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. Individually, the questions ranged from valuable to just plain silly, but seem to have been intended to stand together as a body and imply active US government complicity in the attacks in order to provide a justification for the "War on Terror" and for attacks on civil rights. Now, Griffin, feeling that certain portions of that work are in need of updating in light of new facts, but not wishing to sacrifice its brevity and readability, has authored this volume as a chapter-by-chapter commentary on that volume that both incorporates updates and offers a simultaneous critique of The 9/11 Commission Report. Thus, although the volumes can be purchased separately, they are intended to be read together. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

roger noehren, October 7, 2010 (view all comments by roger noehren)
A front page article in last week's Oregonian (about the significant number of people around the world who share the view expressed by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the UN that rogue elements in the United States government were behind the 9/11 attacks) prompted me to take the four excellently researched and reasoned books by David Ray Griffin off my shelf and review them.

I was staying in a cabin in eastern Oregon on 9/11 w/o a TV, but I listened to NPR all day and was incredulous when I heard about WTC #7 collapsing into it's footprint that evening as if by controlled demolition. Upon returning to Portland and reading the newspaper reports with photos of the perpetrators and stories about Mohamed Atta leaving his briefcase full of incriminating evidence at Logan airport and his passport being found on the streets of NYC, my skepticism increased. The original "New Pearl Harbor" did an excellent job of summarizing the evidence that contradicted the official version of what occurred on that day. Since then there has been the 9/11 Commission and it's report, which Griffin exposed as a whitewash in his "Omissions and Distortions" book and the Popular Mechanics article and book (supporting the official story and "debunking" the so called "conspiracy theories") which Griffin exposed as fraudulent in his "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" book. There has also been a concerted effort by both the mainstream and the alternative media to discredit those who question the official version, as Griffin outlines in the introduction to "The New Pearl Harbor Revisited".

Griffin is a stickler for facts which can be substantiated, hence he felt the need to correct and update his original seminal work, which this book effectively does. Much of the material has been covered in the various books that Griffin has written and edited in the intervening years, but short of reading those excellent volumes, this book will bring readers of the original NPH up to date. For someone (with at least a 30% open mind) who has not read any of Griffin's books, I would suggest starting with "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" as a more concise and readable primer or "9/11 and the American Empire (intellectuals speak out)", which Griffin edited along with Peter Dale Scott. One could also read "NPH Revisited" with a copy of the original version on hand for cross referencing.

I heard on KBOO this morning that David Ray Griffin has published a new book titled "Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory", which I see that Powell's has 47 copies of stashed away in remote warehouses. So clearly the administration is concerned that the alternative scenarios about what transpired on that day that changed everything are gaining traction. President Obama's claim to be shocked that anyone would suggest that the U.S. government was in some way complicit in the attacks is clearly posturing.

NB an otherwise positive review on this site repeatedly referred to Mr Griffin as Griffith - don't be confused by this...
