    Abstract

    This comprehensive work brings together rigorous scholarship on the events of 9-11-2001, and assesses whether the truth has been told by the U.S. government. The volume can be seen as a definitive explanation of 9-11 as a world-changing event. The lead chapter demonstrates that eleven of the FBI-named Arabic hijackers could not have been on the planes and that the Dulles airport videotape -- essentially being the case that hijackers boarded flights -- has very serious authentication problems. Part II consists of three chapters, beginning with an examination of the 9-11 flights themselves as well as insider trading beforehand. The following chapter reviews extensive evidence -- based partly upon newly-released reports by more than 500 firefighters -- permitting a conclusion that three WTC buildings were brought down by demolition. The next discusses military drills which were scheduled and served to confuse standard defensive operating procedures. Part III opens with a chapter examining the connection between al-Qaeda and Western covert operations, showing how al-Qaeda is inseparably connected to the latter. This is followed by a chapter which argues that Machiavellian state terrorism is rather common and not at all unlikely for 9-11. The third chapter of this part examines how the 9-11 Commission wrote its own history of 9-11, rather than reporting and analyzing true history. The rise of Islamophobia as an ideological force to sustain U.S. imperialism is then introduced and examined in the subsequent chapter. In Part IV, the final chapter, while not explicit, offers a possible connection to the process of undermining pensions in the U.K., i.e. as 9-11 changed the political economy of Britain.
