Why We Need a New Investigation into 9/11
Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek 94596
There's little doubt the tragic attacks on 9/11 soon became the defining events of our time, shaping much of what has followed. But even now, over a decade later, how well does the public actually understand them? Other researchers have written about key facets of 9/11-the fall of World Trade Center buildings, the air-defense failures, the backgrounds of the hijackers, or the role of the Saudi funders. This impressively researched volume, however, is the first comprehensive treatment of the many different angles. It connects the dots to reveal disturbing patterns. Years after many of us thought the Crime of the Century was solved, "case closed" additional evidence demands a closer look. These findings, which Dr. Rea presents in a lively, accessible way, call out for a new investigation. In Mounting Evidence, Dr. Rea shows how, by understanding the shattering events of that dark day, Americans can end seemingly endless wars, take back personal liberties they've lost, and restore their democracy.
Dr. Rea feels so committed to bringing historical truth to the events of 9/11 that he has made his book, Mounting Evidence, freely available on Amazon.com: http://tinyurl.com/786ngh3
Dr. Paul W. Rea has taught humanities at Ohio State University, the University of Northern Colorado, and St. Mary's College of California. Now a full-time researcher and writer, Dr. Rea focuses on political, peace and environmental issues.
