On the tenth anniversary of the Septemer 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, David Ray Griffin reviews the troubling questions that remain unanswered9/11 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.

OK, the official explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers: each succeeding floor crushed the core as each floor collapsed, except the core [the central concrete and metal structure which also housed the elevators and stairwell] made up half the weight of the tower, and if it could collapse so easily, it could never have held up the floors and building to begin with? And the temporal factor: with compound resistance the building should have slowly collapsed [assuming such were the case] with each successive collapse adding to the mass so towards the end it would speed up greatly - - yet this never occurred, the towers collapsed in a steady-state manner [as did Building 7, of course], and the only possibility of that, i.e., removing all compound resistance, is from a controlled demolition event. [The most simplest explanation of compound resistance: an empty box is crushed, the four sides of the box offer simple resistance - - but when the box is filled with various items, those items offer compound resistance.]
