New Pearl Harbor A book Review

David Ray Griffin has written an extraordinary book. If carefully read with even just a 30-percent open mind, it is almost certain to change the way we understand the workings of constitutional democracy in the United States at the highest levels of government. As such, this is a disturbing book, depicting a profound crisis of political legitimacy for the most powerful sovereign state in the history of the world —

New Pearl Harbor Shows

A country, furthermore, embarked on the first borderless war, with no markers of victory and defeat. If The New Pearl Harbor receives the sort of public and media attention that it abundantly deserves, it should alter the general public debate and exert a positive influence on how the future unfolds. It is rare, indeed, that a book has this potential to become a force of history.

What makes The New Pearl Harbor so special is that it explores the most sensitive and controversial terrain — the broad landscape of official behavior in relation to the tragedy of 9/11 — in the best spirit of academic detachment, coupled with an exemplary display of the strongest scholarly virtue:

a willingness to
THE NEW PEARL HARBOR — 911 the book
allows  inquiry to follow the path of evidence and reason wherever it leads.

And it leads here to explosive destinations, where severe doubts are raised about the integrity and worldview of our leadership in those parts of the government that exercise the greatest control over the behavior and destiny of the country,

Particularly in the area of national security, which includes a war overseas and the stifling of liberties at home.

And maybe even a Presidents personal Grudge.

Griffin brilliantly makes an overwhelming argument for a comprehensive, unhampered, fully funded, and suitably prominent investigation of the entire story of how and why 9/11 happened,

As well as why such an unprecedented breakdown of national security was not fully and immediately investigated as a matter of the most urgent national priority.

Or at least who is responsible for the Wide Spread  stand down throughout the government that day.

There are so many gaping holes in the official accounts of 9/11 that no plausible coherent narrative remains,

And until now we have been staggering forward as if the truth about these traumatic events no longer mattered.

But to many the importance of the honest truth about this whole criminal coverup is all that matters.
Griffin shows, with insight and a firm grasp of the many dimensions of the global security policy of the Bush Administration,

That getting 9/11 right, even belatedly, matters desperately. The layer upon layer of unexplained facts, the multiple efforts by those in power to foreclose independent inquiry,

And the evidence of a pre-9/11 blueprint by Bush insiders to do exactly what they are now doing on the basis of a 9/11 mandate is why the Griffin assessment does not even require a reader with a normally open mind.

As suggested, 30-percent receptivity will do, which means that all but the most dogrnatically blinded adherents of the Bush presidency should be convinced by the basic argument of this book.

It is cut and dried plain as day who the major players are
It must be underscored that this book does not belong in the genre of “conspiracy theories,” at least, as Griffin himself points out, in the pejorative sense in which that term is usually understood.

It is a painstakingly scrupulous look at the evidence, with an accounting of the numerous discrepancies between the official account provided by the US government and the best information available.
Of course, it is fair to wonder, if the conclusion toward which Griffins evidence points is correct, why this story-of-the-century has not been clearly told before in this country.

Why have the media been asleep? Why has Congress been so passive about fulfilling its role as a watchdog branch of government, above all protective of the American people?

Why have there been no resignations from on high by principled public servants followed by electrifying revelations?

There have been questions raised here and there and allegations of official complicity made almost from the day of the attacks,

 

Its Mostly because everyone has a price, And the price has been met in just about every situation. With death being the most used currency.

But as far as I know, no American until Griffin has had the patience, the fortitude, the courage, and the intelligence to put so many pieces together in a single coherent account.
Part of the difficulty in achieving credibility in relation to issues this profoundly disturbing to public confidence in the basic legitimacy of state power is that the accusatory voices most often heard are strident and irresponsible,

Making them easily dismissed as “paranoid” or “outrageous” without further consideration of whether the concerns raised warrant investigation.

And the most trusted and believable witness`s seem to die or disappear.

In contrast, Griffins approach is calm and his argument consistently well-reasoned, making his analysis undeniably compelling.
But there are troubling forces at work that block our access to the truth about 9/11.

Ever since 9/11 the mainstream media have worked hand-in-glove with the government in orchestrating a mood of patriotic fervour making any expressions of doubts about the official leadership of the country tantamount to disloyalty.

Media personalities, such as Bill Maher, who questioned, even casually, the official narrative were given pink slips, sidelined, and silenced, sending a chilling message of intimidation to anyone tempted to voice dissident opinions.

Waving the American flag became a substitute for critical and independent thought, and slogans such as “United We Stand” were used as blankets to smother whatever critical impulses existed.

This thought-stopping equation of patriotism with unquestioning acceptance of the present administrations policies has played into the hands of those presidential advisors who have seen 9/11 not as a national tragedy but—in the phrase used by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld during a TV interview with Jim Lehrer on the second anniversary of the attacks—”a blessing in disguise.”
As the spell cast by patrioteering has begun to wear off, there is another related dynamic at work to keep us from the truth— what psychiatrists describe as “denial.” The unpleasant realities of the Iraq occupation make it difficult for most Americans to acknowledge that the whole undertaking, including the death and maiming of young Americans, was based on a willful distortion of reality by the elected leadership of the country

Namely, the suggestion that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11. This unpleasantness is magnified many times over if what is at stake is the possibility that the terrible events of 9/11 were from the outset, or before, obscured by deliberately woven networks of falsehoods.

Part of the impulse to deny is a desperate wish to avoid coming face-to-face with the gruesome realities that are embedded in the power structure of government that controls our lives. You are going to have trouble coming to grips with some of the facts about some of the Players in this gruesome story of deceit.

Griffin’s book is a much-needed antidote for the collective denial that has paralyzed the conscience and consciousness of the nation during these past dozen years.

At the very least, it should give rise to a debate that is late, but far better late than never.

Long ago Thomas Jefferson warned that the “price of liberty is eternal vigilance.”

A Warning To All Non Whites

A Warning To All Non Whites

This decision handed down by the Grand Jury in Ferguson Mo.  And the District Attorney in charge of  Regaining some justice for teenager Michael Brown`s family.

Failed Miserably ! And the effort put out by Robert McCulloch  the District Attorney  is shameful at least.

This sends a warning to all non whites  in this country, That Message is We Will Kill You. And you cannot do anything about it.

A very clear and terrifying message, A message that nothing is going to change. And a very clear warning , A Warning To All Non Whites.

We Will Shoot You 1eyeopen.com

A message we should all be ashamed of.

But for many well to do Americans it is business as usual. And lets get on with Making some serious money,

Enough time spent on these Black folk. I heard on the news the jury`s vote was unanimous,

6 white men ,3 white women, 2 black women, and 1 black man,

All decided that officer Darren Wilson did not break the law when he shot Michael Brown close to a dozen times , When Mike Brown was too far away to even touch officer Wilson.

And finally killed the unarmed teenager.

A Warning To All Non Whites

We knew the decision way before they got the gut`s and backup police officers to announce it to the country and the world.

Black males are pretty much in season in the United States, If you can provoke them enough to cause contact, You can shoot them and 95% of the time you will not face any punishment for doing so.

I`m in no way trying to say Michael Brown was acting like a law abiding citizen, He was clearly reckless and out of control, And even threatening,  Did he cause physical pain and injury to officer Wilson ? Maybe so.

But I believe the physical pain and injury part was past and over with by the time officer Wilson delivered the fatal shots to Mike Brown.

It is well known this is standard police procedure in just about every city in the U.S.A. And it happens a lot.

Do white men get shot by the police? I`m sure they do, There are bad guy`s of every color, But do they deserve to be shot? Evidently the black ones deserve it more thats the way it appears anyway.

I Believe some of these young mostly white officers look forward to being able to finally take that deadly shot, After firing hundreds and hundreds of practice shots,

The big chance finally presents itself.  i over heard the words from a police officer right in Ferguson on live T.V. warning or promising protesters he would shoot them if they made the slightest move,

With hand on gun he clearly made his intentions known, this was just day`s after Mike Brown was shot,

And it was announced some time later that officer was dismissed from the force,

But what if one of the protesters  would have done something he did not like? It is hard to know which officer will gun you down for the slightest infraction .

So there needs to be a A Warning To All Non Whites, They will shoot you, And get away with it.

Evidence the grand jury reviewed before deciding not to charge Wilson will eventually go public,

Including audio tapes of the secret hearings.

That’s a decision made by McCulloch, according to St. Louis Public Radio.

It’s uncommon in grand jury hearings for the evidence to be made public,

But McCulloch said he felt it was necessary due to the high-profile nature of the case.

Wilson’s been on paid leave since the shooting.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson has said that Wilson is unlikely to return to duty at all.

Regardless of Monday’s announcement from the grand jury.

Feeding present rumours that Wilson is retiring permanently from the police force, Said mostly due to causing too much distractions for fellow officers.

Along with concerns for his own safety, And those close to him.

Why Didn’t They Decide To Indict Wilson?

Grand jury members reviewed evidence presented to them by prosecutors, and could have decided to charge Wilson with a variety of crimes,

Including first-degree murder, second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.

The difference between these charges is the level of intent grand jury members believed Wilson had in shooting Brown.
