Bill Douglas, Steve Alten, The Shell Game

casseia's picture

What's the background on this Bill Douglas person? Is he the same guy discussed in the "op ed news" thread? Evidently, he is VERY enthusiastic about the imminent release of this novel, whose website (according to the blog at Apt 911B) will feature links to 9/11 Truth sites. Someone claiming to be the founder of the "9/11 Visibility Project" just enrolled at BOTH Portland 9/11 truth yahoo groups, which I take to be a further attempt to generate interest in this project, as described here

Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers Demanding a New 9/11 Investigation,

Today we have an amazing opportunity, if we work together, to launch 9/11 truth into a new mainstream American paradigm.

In the formation of the global 9/11 truth movement there have been landmark moments that catapulted this truth movement forward:

* Mike Ruppert's early work with and his crucial early research (which got me in this)
* The first national truth conference, formed by Carol Brouillet/Ken Jenkins in San Francisco
* The formation of after that conference
* The dissemination of the "Stop the 9/11 Cover Up" signs to groups nationwide (911visibility)
* David Ray Griffin's earth shaking work
* Professor Steven Jones physics research
* Kevin Ryan’s blowing the whistle on inaccuracies of UL’s report to NIST
* The release of Loose Change, which exploded the movement
* The "Eleventh Day of Every Month" Campaign
* The release of
* We Are Change’s national television exposure on 9/11 truth issues
* The release of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,

Today, we have an opportunity to explode 9/11 truth issues into the mainstream mind, in the form of a soon to be released popular action fiction novel by New York Times Best Selling Novelist, Steve Alten ( If we can get 30,000 copies of this profound novel purchased in the first month of its release, we can drive it to #1 on the New York Times best seller list. The 9/11 truth movement can do this, if we ALL push for it to happen.

Why is this such an incredible opportunity?

1) It is written by a New York Times Best Selling novelist - He's established an "adopt-a-writer" program, that has connected him with hundreds of english departments/teachers in high schools all across America and donated many copies of his book to US troops overseas, with a huge audience there.

2) Americans love action fiction (which "The Shell Game" definitely is)

3) The publisher has already purchased prime display space in the front of Barnes & Noble and Borders stores for its release

4) The author's webmaster is now creating a website for the book's release that will include major 9/11 truth websites, youtube video links, and recommended non-fiction reading on 9/11 (DRG, Ruppert, etc.)

We, the undersigned, urge everyone seeking truth, peace and justice, to not only purchase this new novel, "The Shell Game," but also to email out this appeal to all you know who seek truth, peace and justice in the form of 9/11 truth coming out. In turn, please urge them to do the same with all their contacts and urge them to do the same. We can break 9/11 truth open if we work together and focus on this project for the next 30 days.

Yours in 9/11 truth, peace and justice,

Bill Douglas, 911 Visibility Project

Kyle Hence is pimping it...

on Kevin Barrett's radio show, and Barrett excuses "Islamophobic stereotypes" on the basis that it will be a good conversation starter.

"Those who disagree with Alten's take on various matters will still find the book a must-read and a conversation starter. Frankly, I am one of those people. I have serious reservations about the way the book uncritically embraces Islamophobic stereotypes. But I recognize that The Shell Game will start many conversations that America desperately needs to have, including ones about the pervasive Islamophobia in mainstream discourse, so I can get over my disgust at the Islamophobic passages and recognize that Alten's novel is an important, potentially monumental event that deserves to be read and discussed by everyone--ESPECIALLY those of us who find something in it to disagree with."

I'm going to go out on a limb and propose that this is a major LIHOP offensive, allying forces both inside and outside the Truth Movement, with the shared goal of preserving the myth of international Islamic terrorism and the necessity of The War Against Terra at any cost.

I've had long-standing misgivings about Sofia

ever since I found out she was from Pakistan -- jk, ever since I noticed a 2-hour interview with Huffermeister Meisterhuff on the front page of one of the closely-related Sofia sites.

My prediction: further attempts to paint MIHOP/ZIHOP Truthers as whacko-jacko right-wingers, DEW-believers, and Jew-haters and properly Islam-fearing LIHOPPERS as reasonable in calling for a limited investigation into Pakistan's role.

gretavo's picture

you know what i hate?

having people who think they are smarter than us constantly try to play us for fools, because they either think that they are so brilliant, we are so stupid, or that if they gain our trust we will become morons, or that they have this amazing game plan to use gainst us... and all it amounts to is the same tired shit over and over again. I don't wonder that so many people around me with more sense than I have chosen to ignore the "truth movement". Why? Because they know that they will find out anything worth knowing from me, the dumb sucker who forces himself to wade through oceans of BS looking for the needle of truth concealed within. While those friends of mine surely would prefer the truth to lies, they simply do not think it's worth their time to deal with all of this nonsense as I have been doing for the last few years. And I know that at least around here we are many in the same boat--thank jupitar that so many of you seem to have more patience than me! Every real truther will deserve a frikkin medal of freedom (a real one, not like the one that they gave to shut people up after 9/11) for their sacrifice. Sorry, I'm just in a venting mood is all.

casseia's picture

Yup... for instance, WTF is up with this

recent GW blog Were U.S. and Allied Intelligence Agents Acting As the Hijackers' Handlers? Did the internets experience some kind of weird time-warping effect today, suddenly disgorging blog material from what -- 2005? Now, GW wouldn't be transparently idiotic by NOT mentioning Israel in this context -- but weigh that against a FURTHER shoring-up of the idea that dang it! somebody done LET those hijackers do their bad thing! And the Times of India blames Pakistan!

gretavo's picture

9 uses of "hijacker" in that short post

Think someone is trying to say something? Not once did GW use the word "alleged". Honestly, how much do you have to hate arabs or muslims to transform them from people whose pictures were put on TV the day after 9/11 to "hijackers"? That's all they have! These guys were "being tracked". These guys "lived with informants". These guys took flying lessons. And that's an amalgam of all 19 guys! At worst I think you can say that these guys were sent on a mission that they were supposed to just carry out without asking questions as to the whys and wherefores. A few are probably just pictures, nothing more... And ALL of what they can pin on any of them is to distract from the fact that the one thing they CAN'T pin on them is having HIJACKED a goddamned thing!

Excellent, Cass - ZIHOP might work as:

We’ve noted the date and time of your trademark registration for the history books, btw.

Hi to all,
God it’s great to hear all of your voices again. I just got back from holiday season family visits. Oy, what a bunch of severely media-brainwashed, virginal newbies my family is, except for my mom, who completely now gets it, and said she knew it all along. This is the best damn 9/11 truth-site on the internet, PERIOD. Now I have to start reading all of y’all’s new stuff, it’s WTCD catch-up time.

Yeah, “George Washington,” there is something about him that has my Spidey-senses tingling in a “Jon Gold sort of way.” Mossad, CIA, FBI, and Saudi Intelligence -- all following the “19 devout, suicidal Muslim hijackers” around the country from strip club to strip club. Right. They must have been the most closely watched, yet successful “terrorists” in history. As former Mossad katsa Victor Ostrovsky clearly points out in By Way of Deception, Mossad hires Arab patsies all the time, as part of their operations. When you are in the business of running FF operations with the idea of assigning blame to the Arabs, it is always much more effective if you can hire actual Arabs to work as part of the op. At this point, any veteran 9/11 blogger still pushing Israel’s involvement in 9/11 as -- the Mossad following the “highjackers” around the U.S. -- is either completely stupid and naive, or is working for the “you-know-whoozies” as part of the new limited hangout, “Fake 9/11 Truth – ‘the Arabs did it’ – Movement.”

But two caveats: I haven't figured out how it could work as an actual acronym and also I would not describe myself as a ZIHOPPER in the sense that I ascribe 100% responsibility to Zionists of whatever nationality per se-- I think other players had a hand in it. Especially Pakistan's ISI.

Others involved, cabalism..Charlie Wilson's War!

Have you seen? I highly recommend it.  I agree about others involved. it's amazing how strange bedfellows are made for covert purposes as storyline in this film demonstrates.  cabalism!

there's one scene in particular towards the end:

while celebrating his reelection, Hanks and that incredible actor with the awesome-voice-CIA dude are having a private conversation on the balcony.

One can only assume what was being related to Hanks "Listen carefully, now....", as the conversation is then blocked by noise of jetplane passing overhead.

 and of course the Zen Master parable - fantastic!! I saw with my 18-year-old, and she had a million questions about 911 on the way home.

and the audience all jolted in our seats during the part where they claim "Bhutto was not killed by President Zia!" how did that happen to be in the film which was just released??...very uncanny.

You are wrong. "The Shell Game's" story is a MIHOP story.

You are wrong. "The Shell Game's" story is a MIHOP story. It amazes me when people who claim they want a new 9/11 investigation try to tear apart anyone who actually gets off their ass and tries to break out some 9/11 truth.

Excerpts from "The Shell Game."

“Where was the military? General Richard Myers [Acting Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff] and Mike Snyder [NORAD spokesperson] both said no military jets were sent up until after the strike on the Pentagon [9:38]. Yet American Airlines Flight 11 had shown two of the standard signs of hijacking at 8:15. This means that procedures that usually result in interception within ten or so minutes had not been carried out in eighty minutes. That enormous delay suggested that a stand-down order, canceling standard procedures, must have been given.”

-- Professor David Ray Griffin,
The 9/11 Commission’s Incredible Tales

“Over the course of two years [independent journalist Daniel] Hopsicker not only added information to what was known about [the 9/11 hijackers] military training, he established that some of the hijackers associated with wealthy Floridians had both intelligence and Bush family connections. Hopsicker also confirmed that within hours after the attacks, Florida Governor Jeb Bush had a military C-130 Hercules transport fly into the Venice [Florida] airport where a hastily loaded rental truck, filled with the records of Huffman Aviation – where Atta, Alshehri, and others had trained – was driven directly into the plane. The C-130 immediately took off for parts unknown.”

-- Michael C. Ruppert, from Crossing the Rubicon: The
Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil

casseia's picture

I guess we'll see.

It amazes me when people who claim they want a new 9/11 investigation try to tear apart anyone who actually gets off their ass and tries to break out some 9/11 truth.

This, as most of us here recognize, is one of the central group-think enforcement memes. How dare you criticize someone who is GETTING OFF HIS ASS for 9/11 Truth when we all know you are SITTING ON YOUR ASS, DOING NOTHING. Problem is, I know I am not sitting on my ass doing nothing, so when someone tells me to shut up on this basis, my bullshit meter is automatically triggered. Make a note, Bill Douglas -- maybe you should leave the PR to the publicists.

gretavo's picture

alleged hijackers, and Shell Game is total LIHOP BS

David Ray Griffin, in the Afterword to the Revised and Updated edition of The New Pearl Harbor:

"I wish to emphasize now, more strongly than before, how problematic the theory of Arab-Muslim hijackers is." pg. 169

Now, just because the people who were erroneously named as hijackers did this or that does not mean that they hijacked anything. That some planes were flown into the twin towers seems apparent. That there was a deliberate "stand down order" seems less likely than that the air defense system was set up for failure that day by parties unknown, but it's certainly possible. The million dollar question is how the demolition of the twin towers and building 7 fits into the rest. Alleged hijackings that have never been proven to have happened to any degree of certitude would have had nothing to do (except as a decoy) with the demolition of the twin towers and building 7.

If Shell Game is going to answer that question and give a plausible account of the role played by Lewis Eisenberg, Lawrence Silverstein, Alvin Hellerstein, the Dancing Israelis, etc. then I will be happy to purchase a copy to see what it has to offer. Since an excerpt I have seen includes a bit of absurd holocaust nonsense (that the Nazis used fat from Jews to run the crematoria ovens day and night) I think I can guess how many of the aforementioned Zionists will figure into the story.

However this tripe has been sold to the various truth movement personalities who it is said are endorsing it I don't know. Maybe as a conversation starter on bogus holocaust claims? I just don't get it, but it sure smells bad...

gretavo's picture

YT (truthaction) requests name not be used to sell Shell Game

And he points out, to be fair, that he is not doing so to condemn the book but because he does not really know enough about it. Very fair, and a good policy for personal endorsements I would say. TY, YT, for keeping it real!

Hi Cass,

Hi Cass,

For the benefit of those who did not see the previous thread, here it is.

If I hadn't followed the David Shayler implosion (, I would not have entertained the possibility that Bill Douglas was a shill. But knowing how long Shayler was developed as a public 9-11 champion who then suddenly goes crazy (to discredit 9-11 truth), I know it is very possible that someone who has been as visibly pro 9-11 truth for years can turn out to be an agent of sorts with a hidden agenda (in Douglas' case, protecting the Zionists).

casseia's picture

Thanks, Juan

Thanks -- I went back and looked at that thread when his name came up in relation to this book, and I wanted a little dot-connection reality check. This is shaping up into something quite evil -- and I suspect it will tie in to the situation in Pakistan. Hillary is calling for an international investigation of the Bhutto assassination -- jeez, there's all kinds of shit that could turn up. They might find out that Pakistan did 9/11!

So how come I had never heard of Bill Douglas?

juandelacruz's picture

I cannot fathom the gameplay

I cannot fathom the gameplay with the Bhutto assassination. Maybe Musharraf is now being developed as the LIHOP enabler (with or without his consent). I don't think Musharraf ordered the assassination, it is against his interests to further inflame those who truly oppose him. I will need to see more of this play out before I can conclude what is happening.

I was in the province recently where a death squad secretly run by the city mayor is suspected to have assassinated a journalist who was outspoken against him. The radio commentator was shot a day before Christmas.

We need a 9-11 movement of sorts in my country but sadly there is nowhere we can do this.

Excerpt from The Shell Game

Nineteen pages are available as a pdf on the guy's site -- an introduction (worth reading) and a single scene in which a blond spook lady with "taut breasts" twists the arm of a noble American military intelligence guy. Now, bear in mind that as a grad-level student of English Lit I would NEVER take a character's statements to be those of the author without waaay more than a brief passage from which to make my argument. However, it is rather, shall we say, provocative to include this lil' speech in this freebie chapter:

The blonde sits back, her face turning flush. “You think you’ve been in hell? You have no idea what hell is, Colonel. I have a great uncle who passed away a few years ago. When he was ten the Nazis rounded him up with his parents and sisters, his aunts and uncles and cousins and the rest of the Jews in his village and shoved them into cattle
cars. The lucky ones suffocated to death on the ride to Auschwitz. When they arrived at the death camp the women were separated from the men and taken directly to the gas
chambers. That was before the Nazis figured out they could run the ovens day and night by using the fat from burning human flesh as a fuel.

“I may seem like a cold-hearted bitch to you, Colonel, and maybe I am. But when I go home at night I hug a husband who loves me and kiss two young children whom I adore, and if I have to be a bitch to make sure they don’t get incinerated by some asshole in a turban who’s been brainwashed into believing he’s going to paradise for
killing infidels. . . then so be it.”

She pauses, looking out the window at downtown Washington. “Last week I was watching CNN. . . Glenn Beck was interviewing Benjamin Netanyahu. The former Israeli Prime Minister was asked what the Jews learned from the Holocaust. You know what he said? He said, ‘when someone tells you they intend to annihilate you, you should believe them.’”

gretavo's picture

gee, i'm shocked--SHOCKED!

That was before the Nazis figured out they could run the ovens

day and night by using the fat from burning human flesh as a fuel.

Oh MY this is a new one!  My question is, how is it that this shiksa had a Jewish great-uncle?  And are her breats SELF-taut?

Ayahhh.  Ayyyyyaahhhhhh.  People--as the most holocausty of holocaust scholars will now admit--there was nO SOAP made from Jews.  There were NO CANDLES made from Jews.  There were NO LAMPSHADES made from Jews.  And NO--CREMATORIA DO NOT RUN ON FAT.  Is it me or is the fake truth movement really coming into its own and hitting its stride?

I was thinking I hadn't heard that one before, and then feeling a lot of Gentile guilt.

juandelacruz's picture

That part you quoted says it

That part you quoted says it all. The rest of the book I presume will blame everyone except Israel/Mossad/Zionists/AIPAC :)

I just read the rest of the excerpt, there was nothing worth getting excited about from a truther's point of view. It looked like a total endorsement of Neocon/Zionist myths on Iran, terrorists, suite case nukes.

Here is the first book review I can find:

A reviewer, 11/17/2007

In 2012, 'centrist conservative' David McKuin is the President of the United States. However, much of the secretive centralize controls gained after 9/11 are gone following the excesses of his predecessor President Bush. Thus they cannot do what they feel is needed to keep Americans safe take out Iran and its radical fundamentalist leadership and insure reelection of an at war president. --- However, some of his Neocon advisors believe a 9/11 sting needs to occur so once again they can centralize power and provide security to the American people. They concoct a plan to have the Feds nuke an American city and hold Iran culpable. Energy guru Ace Futrell wants to know who killed his wife as he thinks it was government agents. He soon uncovers the scheme to use a nuclear strike to attack Iran and to strengthen their power he plans to expose this horrific American tragedy. --- Except for those who believe President Bush directed the 9/11 attack, this thriller is over the stratosphere of plausibility sinister Feds planning to nuke an American city and believing they can not only hide the attack but blame Iran seems unreal in spite of some recent slam dunk CIA revelations. Still conspiracy buffs will appreciate the exciting action-packed thriller especially those on the extreme right as Hilary was the latest Democrat to lose to a sound bite conservative while the Middle East country building contingent find neo con work with reengineering Iran starting with blowing up an American city. --- Harriet Klausner

juandelacruz's picture

I fear the book - because of

I fear the book - because of its Islamophobic point of view - would do more to discredit the "esteemed" 9-11 truthers who are quoted in the book rather than promote the truth.

More than the point above however, I think the partial truth advanced by the book (Neocons are complicit) will be used as leverage by the Zionists to demand another "favor" from the Neocons, like invade Iran or whatever.

Here's a synopsis of one of "Shell Game" Author's Other Books

What Shell Game seems to be about is two things:

1)  give ammo to those who will say "you all read too many political thrillers--reality isn't like that!"

and for those who that won't convince,

2) provide a background "precedent", even if fictional, of the US government nuking an American city "to blame Iran", as opposed to Israel doing it, which is much more likely.

I couldn't really say but I wonder about Kevin Ryan and David Griffin endorsing this shlock... they're the only two in the list of endorsers (now that YT is off) who I still have faith in up to now but this has made me question at the very least their judgement, certainly their motives (are they being pressured by someone, or lied to about something) and, god forbid, their sincerity.

Anyway, check out a previous book penned by this Steve Alten character and just imagine the field day that people will have if the truth movement is seen to be pushing Shill Game... I mean SHELL game, sorry!  :-P


For those who never leave home without a copy of the prophecies of Nostradamus tucked in their hip pocket, Steve Alten's new thriller is just the ticket. Domain focuses its doomsday scenario on an ancient Mayan myth and sets up an intriguing pair of saviors in Dominique Vasquez, a psych grad student who's an intern at a Florida psychiatric facility, and Mick Gabriel, her first patient. Mick, the son of two famous archaeologists, has languished in the Miami asylum for over a decade after attacking the man who publicly humiliated his father and who now happens to be the American secretary of state. The elder Gabriel believed he had unearthed the riddle surrounding the origins of Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid of Giza, the desert glyphs of the Nazca desert, the temples of Angkor Wat, and the Mayan ruins of the Yucatan peninsula--and that the answer pointed inexorably to the doom of humanity. As the winter solstice of 2012 approaches (the day of reckoning prophesied by the myths of the Kukulcan Pyramid at Chichen Itza), Mick enlists Dominique in his effort to save mankind from the apocalypse. Engineering his escape from the hospital, she accompanies him on a desperate search to find his way into the pyramid before the radio message from space, which has already activated a deadly alien weapon buried deep in the Gulf of Mexico, can open a galactic gateway to a world where evil will reign for all eternity. Alten's talent for pacing far outstrips his other writerly gifts. The political subplot is ludicrous, the special effects way over the top, and the villain-in-chief, who happens to be named Borgia, is merely a cartoon. But the story is original enough to pass muster and the past success of similar apocalyptic thrillers bodes well for this one. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Perhaps what those who attack any real movement for mass 9/11 tr

Perhaps what those who attack any real movement for mass 9/11 truth . . . really fear not what they say . . . but the possibility that 9/11 truth issues will go mainstream.

Think about it. In any movement there are those who do real work, to expose millions to critical 9/11 truths . . . and then there are others like some on this blog . . . who only sit back and attack anyone who is actually doing something to expand the 9/11 truth movement.

Cassiao, or whatever the name is asks, "Who's Bill Douglas?" I would ask you to ask Cassiao who he/she is. I've been working for 9/11 truth for 7 years, and have never heard the name before.

Here's who Bill Douglas is:


Bill Douglas has been a great voice for 9/11 Truth since well before I spoke out publicly. His past essays include, "Exposing the 9/11 Conspiracy Wingnuts," "The Explosion of the 9-11 Truth Movement -- US Media's Dirty Little Secret," "Good Night, and Good Luck - WMD, NIST, Popular Mechanics, 9/11 and Media Crimes" and also "Why the Jewish Community Should Demand 9/11 Truth."

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney:
Lonely Patriot Within a Den of Traitors

From John Judge and Bill Douglas
February 20, 2006
Forward courtsy of Dr. Kanya

I am forwarding this call for support to Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney who has been a courageous and almost lone voice of dissent (Reps. Kucinich (OH) and Lee (CA) being among the exceptions) against the dangerous and destabilizing course taken by President Bush in the wake of September 11.

McKinney has had the audacity to raise questions that any thoughtful American would ask about the level of prior knowledge that Bush, the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies had regarding the 9-11 attack and who will benefit financially from the response to these events, including those close to Bush. She called for a full investigation into 9-11, and we should back her in this.

So, you can put stock in this Cassio, or Cassia or whoever . . . or you can believe someone who's fought the good fight for 9/11 truth for years and shown results.

Its your call. I know Cassio will spew and spit and urge you all not to boost a 9/11 truth novel to the top of the NY Times list. I say anyone who truly wants 9/11 truth will be shooting themselves in both feet if they don't do what they can to get "The Shell Game" as widely read as possible.

Re: Your Opinion of “"Disturbing trend of 9/11 skeptics"

I am submitting an opinion piece for Rocky Mountain News, written by Bill Douglas, an author who has also been a contributing guest columnist for The Business Journal, The Kansas City Star, etc.


Use google, you'll find years of effective 9/11 activism by Bill Douglas . . . or you can just accept the spurious character assasination of cassio or cassia or whatever his/her name is.

(this is a response to the post on who Bill Douglas is)

someone can also say who is David Shayler, he was this and that for the truth movement for XXX years, an ex-spook, etc, etc...(then he claimed to be the messiah). Some shills can be "marketed" as genuine looking truthers for years before the payload is released.

Disinformation can be 90% accurate (to gain trust) and 10% misleading lies (the actual mission objective). I am not saying Bill is a paid shill, but it is not impossible (there is still the possibility he is just ignorant) and right now he is not making good sense promoting the book the way he did.

Support The Shill Game - OR ELSE!

Or else YOU, like "Cassio" and "other people on this blog" are shooting 9/11 Truth in the foot!  Bill Douglas is a 9/11 Truth ROCK STAR, OK?  So what if you never heard of him!  So what if he is inexplicably peddling some hack writer's bizarre sounding story about how neocons are really just trying to cope with the horrible threat of Iranian suitcase nukes blowing up all over America and bringing down western civilization!  So what that neither Mr. Douglas nor The Shill Game seem to be willing to acknowledge the fact that traitors in the US government are in fact working hand in hand with Israelis and Zionists, NOT Iranians, and that the real nuclear threat is from Israel, which has always lied about having nukes AND refuses to allow inspections of its facilities like the rest of the world!  So what if the guy defending the shills here doesn't want anyone to know who he is!

yeah, so who is this annoymouse???

attacking our brilliant and brave truther Casseia???

if the author of this book and his friends and  "handlers" can't take the critique, maybe they should get out of the biz.

this is abhorent...this defense of 9/11 as being a necessary big-picture evil is disgusting.

without reading the book, does it address the issue of mossad agents in the US being involved in the crime? does it address Chertoff, Silverstein, Lowy, Eisenberg, Zelikow, Zakheim.....? all these people in power who are not loyal to the United States but to Israel first????

i want my freekin' country back!

btw, i am wearing my wtcdemo shirt today - love it!

best wishes to all for a more beautiful and peaceful 08

Justifying 9/11?

". . . Meanwhile, Iran’s pursuit of nuclear energy will yield enriched uranium within five years -- uranium that can be used to manufacture suitcase nukes.

"The United States’ military is too drained to invade Iran, and a preemptive strike is out of the question...unless a nuclear detonation were to occur on in American city -- the enriched uranium traced back to Iran. A U.S. reprisal would strike a death-blow against radical Islam, quell the insurgent violence in Iraq...and yield more oil. Yes, the cost is unthinkable – but if we sit back and do nothing then one day a dozen suitcase bombs could go off in a dozen American cities – bringing with it anarchy and the collapse of Western civilization."

So this book offers a justification for 9/11 -- peak oil -- and a justification for another 9/11 -- Iran's pursuit of nuclear energy that will bring the "anarchy and the collapse of Western civilization." This appears to be the fall back I always expected -- we did it for the good of the country. I assume that many of the perpetrators genuinely believed that. I think they should be allowed to offer this in mitigation at sentencing.

Goethe said "We are never deceived, we deceive ourselves." The biggest obstacle to 9/11 truth is that people don't want to know. People want a nice justification for wars over control of resources.

Here's an earlier example of justification, in Three Days of the Condor:

Higgins: It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In ten or fifteen years, food. Plutonium. Maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?
Joe Turner: Ask them?
Higgins: Not now - then! Ask 'em when they're running out. Ask 'em when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask 'em when their engines stop. Ask 'em when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You wanna know something? They won't want us to ask 'em. They'll just want us to get it for 'em!

how can there be an honest discussion of hitting Iran w/o Israel

I do not think the US Gov't really fears Iranian nukes. Just like Iraq WMD, this feigned fear is propaganda. While oil is a possible motive for Iraq, the greatest motivation for attacking Iran is Israel.

The book is just a novel so I will not critique it for being incomplete or misleading. For the same reason, I do not think it worth endorsing as a vehicle for 9-11 advocacy. At worst it is designed for some devious political ploy and I certainly won't give my money to support it.

Please rescind your endorsement


Not specifically endorsing flyover is meaningless as you have seen. CIT uses your endorsement for credibility and uses that credibility as leverage against anyone who opposes them.

As Kevin Ryan pointed out:
“endorsements” are a good way to pit people against each other, and that’s exactly what has been done. There has never been another issue in the truth movement that has required the pursuit of endorsements
but, for some reason, this least important question about the Pentagon is promoted as an important issue requiring us to divide into camps. Divide and conquer is the strategy of the intentional disruptor.

You can help stop these disruptors by being the first to rescind your endorsement and condemning their attack on this website, it's owner Justin Keogh, [who is also a member of the Board at AE911Truth] and the other moderators.

CIT and their supporters have drawn a line in the sand that divides the TM.

Which side do you want to be on?

I guess Kevin Ryan was for endorsements...

...before he was against them. Maybe it was his embarassing endorsement of New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten's The Shell Game that made him change his mind...
