Revealed OR Concealed? - A Critical Review of The New Book, '9/11 Revealed'
08 Nov 2005
"It is entirely possible that Al-Qaeda conducted the attacks without outside help, and that the blunders that contributed to their terrible success were just that -- blunders, as the Kean Commission's Report concludes." - '9/11 Revealed'

Revealed OR Concealed?
A Critical Review of '9/11 Revealed'

Introduction

9/11 Revealed is impressively packaged. It has 253 pages with scores of color photographs, and sophisticated graphic design. The writing is dramatic. It has a broad scope, and appears to cover most of the challenges to the official story of the 9/11/01 attack.

The book pretends to speak for the 9/11 Truth Movement. It is written in the third person, and presents most challenges as things that "9/11 skeptics" or "Nine/Eleven skeptics" say. The undiscerning reader is likely to think that the book represents the work of the community of serious independent investigators working to expose the truth about the attack. Finding that the book fails to make a strong case that the attack was the work of insiders, the reader may conclude, incorrectly, that investigators have failed to make a compelling case.

In essence 9/11 Revealed is a slick package designed to sell the numerous hoaxes that have long been used to marginalize the 9/11 Truth Movement as nothing but a bunch of loony conspiracy theorists lacking the critical thinking skills necessary to correctly evaluate evidence.

Who would write such a book? Other books purporting to expose the attack as the work of insiders are also marred by errors, but the skillful way in which 9/11 Revealed embeds red herrings and hoaxes within a tapestry of seemingly professional reporting suggests an explanation other than incompetence.
