First post 9-ll book I've read that gives me answers to everything I've wondered about. Excellent!!! I've tried to get subscribed to Michael C. Ruppert's online or hard copy subscription list but meet with interference every which way. Don't know what this means but don't like it!

Dense with facts and footnotes, I found myself putting it down at times because I was feeling sick to my stomach.

SInce reading this, I have researched and have discovered that nobody has been able to debunk anything but the most piddling of details from this book.

It is frightening (but I guess should not be suprising) to realize that there are people within our own country and government that would go to such lengths to achieve their socio-political objectives.

Perhaps some day the truth that Ruppert has discovered will be "known" and accepted by all, but we will have to change a lot about our government and our society for that to happen.

I was delighted to discover that this is the second best seller about 9/11. One reader at a time, I guess.

I can't rate this book because my library refuses to add it to the catalog, which is very odd. I recommend probably 50-100 books a year to the library for purchase (part of my effort to kick my book-buying jones and live more sustainably by promoting libraries). Almost every book I recommend, they buy. In fact, I have had exactly two books rejected. One was because it was more of a pamphlet. The other was "Crossing the Rubicon," which a number of friends have read and raved about. When I told one friend of this, his comment was "They probably don't want any more FBI visits than they already get, and the FBI would definitely be looking for the names of people who check out this book."

So I may have to buy a copy and I can amend this review; meanwhile, the hearsay review is that this is a very important book on a very ugly subject--how our addiction to oil gets us into geopolitical trouble.
