The Book Hugo Chavez Should Have Held Up

A Scripps Howard poll found: "More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East".
Yet major news media refuse to investigate alternative hypotheses offered by dozens of independent researchers and groups. When they do report on them, they are dismissive of these hypotheses, but do not address the evidence offered.
Until last week, had I been asked where should one begin to examine the alternative hypotheses, and the vast amount of evidence available, I would have recommended The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions by David Ray Griffin, Professor of Philosophy of Religion and Theology.
Now I’m not so sure.
I have just finished reading another book that claims, 9/11 was a false-flag attack, orchestrated by forces within the U.S. government.
This attack was used, claims the author, to launch the kind of clash of civilizations that Samuel Huntington had predicted. As illustrated by the fact that all the countries on the Pentagons hit list are predominantly Muslim, this war pits the predominantly Christian West (along with its ally Israel) against the Islamic world.
One of the evils of this civilizational war, writes the author, is that it has implanted in Western minds an association between Muslim and terrorist, so that Muslims tend to be regarded as guilty until proven innocent.
The author calls upon the church to reflect on the truth of this thesis -- that 9/11 was a false-flag operation carried out by forces within our own government in order to advance the American empire. He urges them to reflect upon the implication of this books thesis and suggests several courses of action.
For Muslim leaders, who are genuinely concerned about their community, and for all Americans, the truth about 9/11 may be the most important issue of our time.
So where should one begin to examine the alternative hypotheses, and the vast amount of evidence available?
Read Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11 by David Ray Griffin.
This is the book that Hugo Chavez should have held up during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 20, 2006.
