5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Update to the Review of 9/11/2001 History,
This review is from: Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11 (Paperback)
As many diligent researchers know of the WTC and Pentagon events of 9/11/2001 (what Barry Zwicker refers to as The Grand Deception), various popular culture accounts (TV, radio, movies, youtube, newspapers, etc.), as well as the 9/11 Commission Report leave is a massive untold story of what really happened that day. For some of us "truthers", books such as Webster Tarpley's 9/11 Synthetic Terror, or one or more of David Ray Griffin's books have been have been welcome additions to unraveling the unexplained, and mostly undiscussed, oddities of 9/11. Yet, for the patient and thorough researcher, the particulars of what is fact and fiction is unbelievably stark, and unfinished. Our task is: find a path to knowledge of how much of the 9/11 myth must be excised to find a foundation for the clear-eyed retelling of how the deception was created and managed.
In the context of making sense of how to reconstruct what did and didn't happen on 9/11/2001, Dean Hartwell has provided a much needed re-shuffle. Dean's focus is on the flights and passengers, tough-minded, and forthright, putting aside arguments about foreknowledge, missed opportunities for rounding up the "hijackers" prior to the "plot", bombs / nano-thermite in the WTC, etc. In doing so, Dean exposes the reasons to not only doubt the essence of the argument that "hijacked planes" resulted in WTC destruction, and the curious Pentagon stike, which Lynn Cheney told Laura Bush was originally intended for the White House. In the place of the parroted "hijacking by evil maniacal Arab terrorists", Dean presents the strong case that most everything related to the "hijackings" was planned and manipulated as a cover story.
The line of thinking which Mr. Hartwell explores is not as novel as many may suspect. Although Dean steers away from much of radar, pictorial, and video records of the "flights", the best evidence in these areas back of his thesis in spades. Dean gives credit to the trail blazers who have served admirably and well, and he notes FOIA requests which have been placed to pursue the quest to get the facts right with respect to the flights and passengers. Dean lays out the case, showing where much more info and research (and pressure by the research community) is needed.
Planes without Passengers is a must read for every 9/11 researcher who wants to break free of the false premises which have weighed down much of the popular debate within the "truther" communities, and elsewhere.
