Ventura, CA (PRWEB) August 8, 2006
A recent Zogby poll reveals that more than half of Americans distrust the official story of 9/11 and 42% believe there’s been a cover up. The same poll shows 55% of respondents are negative about media performance, including coverage of alternative theories and unanswered questions surrounding 9/11.
As the 5th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, media critic and TV producer Barrie Zwicker delivers a blistering critique of the official story and its promoters in the media in his new book, "Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11" available in bookstores August 17th. Zwicker takes on newspaper editors, including those at the New York Times, and network news executives, including those at ABC, who have repeatedly stifled elementary questions such as…
How would it be possible -- unless there was deliberate paralysis -- that not a single US Air Force interceptor would turn a wheel until it was too late, during a drama in the skies on 9/11, of almost two hours? Sixty-seven times in the previous year fighters were scrambled in minutes for lesser emergencies.
Why have media never challenged President Bush’s claim that he saw, on ordinary TV, the first plane hit the WTC? Footage of the first plane hitting was not aired until the next day, September 12th, 2001. Why haven’t the media asked Bush about his magic TV?
Why did Larry Silverstein, the lease holder on the World Trade Center, publicly admit he was involved in a decision to “pull” WTC building 7 late on the afternoon of 9/11, even though the building was not hit by a plane and suffered little damage? Controlled demolitions require weeks of preparation: why have media pointedly ignored this glaring anomaly?
In "Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11" Zwicker provides readers with 26 “Exhibits” of evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, what’s known as a “false flag operation.” In a false flag operation, an attack is self-inflicted in order to mobilize the public against a designated enemy. Eighteen such operations are described in Towers of Deception. They include the non-existent attack on American destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964. This “attack” provided justification for the Vietnam War, costing 58,000 US lives and 3-million Vietnamese lives.
The phenomenon of denial is also explored and there are 16 profiles of fearless investigators who have exposed the fraud of the official story. Also included with the book is a powerful documentary on DVD, entitled "The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw" produced by the author.
