That is the most arrogant, condescending comment yet. Who the hell are you to decide what's opinion and what's fact. Telling lies all day, every day is unhealthy Ed. Do you feel alright?

Notice he has book by nutjob David Ray Griffith offering his OPINION on the 911 Commission yet
does not list the 911 Commission Report

One of the tenants of any research is to go to the original source materials........

Most of the books seem to be political opinions. not basic research

About par for truther ........

Are you able to tell what kind of book it is by the title or did you actually read some of them?

The 9/11 commission report was the first book I read about 9/11, there's nothing but opinions and half truth in it by the way.. I forgot to list it.

I have a problem with voluntarily sending them my money for some reason.

What limits where you'd send your money? Would you send it to people who claimed victims didn't exist? Would you send it to people who claimed that the families of victims were part of the conspiracy?

Where's your limit? From what I've seen you've read only books advocating one side of the story, but then you come on here and try to put forward an air of balanced criticism. Why would you only have read one particular section of the literature?

You are wrong that I read only one side of the story books. You should look into it first and then comment.

I don't care about people who claim fake plane and victims in on it, so I would not buy their books. I also don't care much about Bigfoot , it's in the same category as far as I'm concerned.

Bush, Cheney and the rest of them are guilty of a coverup in the best case scenario in my opinion. I work hard for my money and I'm a law abiding and tax paying citizen, if I can help not financing criminals I do it.

Bob Woodward´s accommodating book "Bush at War" served indirectly for my conversion about 9/11. I came surprised how any historical perspective was absent in the simplified reasoning. That was puzzling.
I also read Chomsky, an anti-truther, to comprehend his blunt attitude towards 9/11 phenomena.

Way too many to even attempt to list here. But good to see you try for a balanced approach to your reading list.

I don't see that you've read the NIST reports, the 911 commission reports, hell even Firefight which gets recommended everywhere here. Surely these would be primary sources on your list, well above nonsense by Ron Paul.

So you dismiss cryptozoology in reasonable fashion, but then don't seem to understand how the same logic pervades all of 911 research? You have a freaking DRG book there but you don't consider him wildly irrational?

I wouldn't be surprised to find them guilty, but why does that stop you downloading and reading the commission report?

You should pay more attention to what you read.

And are you planning on contributing to the reading list or are you just trying to prove something here?

The three that come to mind are...

Here is New York- A Democracy in Photographs: a collection of photographs taken in and around the World Trade Center during 9/11

Aftermath: a collection of photos taken of the ground zero cleanup by photographer Joel Meyerowitz

The 9/11 Commission report: Much aligned, but ironically rarely read, which is pathetic if you ask me since if the truthers insist the report is a pack of lies, it's their responsibility to have read the thing to know what these lies are even supposed to be

The point is, there are loads of references that show these conspiracy claims are rubbish- no fires in WTC 7, noone saw what hit the Pentagon, no evidence of any Arabs on any of the hijacked planes, and so on- but they don't know any of it because they're getting their information from crackpot and con artists looking to make a fast buck off the conspiracy crowd. Look at these posts and you'll see right away how many of them include David Ray Griffin. At least, with the 9/11 Commission report, you can download it for free.

Max, David Ray Griffin believes that the telephone calls from the airplanes were used by voice morphing technology.

-- "The present essay provides various types of evidence that the calls [from 9/11 planes] were, indeed, faked." (Griffin, 2011, p. 101)

That aside, here are the books I have read:

Circle in the Sand: Why We Went Back to Iraq

The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11

Firefight: Inside the Battle to Save the Pentagon on 9/11

Your Government Failed You: Breaking the Cycle of National Security Disasters

Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror

The Ground Truth: The Untold Story of America Under Attack on 9/11

9/11 Commission Report

World Trade Center Disaster Study - NIST

I read his book right after i read the 9/11 Commission report, and it didn't really make any kind of an impression on me.

I think that (The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation ) is a very good book about the 9/11 Commission, which shows how the investigation was compromised since the day it was formed.

I'm finishing up (Disconnecting the Dots) and then I'm planning to read the Firefight.

Thanks for the input...
