The Hidden History Of 9-11-2001


  • Paul Zarembka
    (State University of New York at Buffalo)


[Part I] 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] 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] This part 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. [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.
