On the tenth anniversary of the Septemer 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, David Ray Griffin reviews the troubling questions that remain unanswered

9/11 Ten Years Later is David Ray Griffin's tenth book about the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Asking in the first chapter whether 9/11 justified the war in Afghanistan, he explains why it did not.

In the following three chapters, devoted to the destruction of the World Trade Center, Griffin asks why otherwise rational journalists have endorsed miracles (understood as events that contradict laws of science). Also, introducing the book's theme, Griffin points out that 9/11 has been categorized by some social scientists as a state crime against democracy.

Turning next to debates within the 9/11 Truth Movement, Griffin reinforces his claim that the reported phone calls from the airliners were faked, and argues that the intensely debated issue about the Pentagon—whether it was struck by a Boeing 757—is quite unimportant.

Finally, Griffin suggests that the basic faith of Americans is not Christianity but "nationalist faith"—which most fundamentally prevents Americans from examining evidence that 9/11 was orchestrated by U.S. leaders—and argues that the success thus far of the 9/11 state crime against democracy need not be permanent.

Dr. David R. Griffin is the leading voice of the 9/11 Truth movement. He has exposed the false claims provided by the U.S. government about what happened to the WTC Twin towers and building 7. All his books on 9/11 must be read by everyone who wants to know the untold story about the 9/11 disaster. He also exposed the secret plan of the Bush-Cheney administration they had decided to do long before the 9/11 disaster happened - to Invade Iraq, by using the 9/11 disaster as a justification for their doing it. I just hope no one will "neutralize" him for telling us the truth about what actually happened in 9/11.
