Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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."
