In addition it presents worthy contributions from Zarembka himself, Jay Kolar, Don Jacobs, David MacGregor, Bryan Sacks and Diana Ralph.
In "Making History: the Compromised 9-11 Commission", Bryan Sacks, adjunct professor of philosophy at Drexel University, demonstrates in detail that the 9/11 Commission was both structurally and procedurally "compromised" from its inception, as required to guarantee a thorough whitewash of the US government's role in the 9/11 attacks.He surveys the evidence of severe "conflicts of interest" of principal members of the Commission, including its director Philip Zelikow, its vice-chair Lee Hamilton, commissioner Jamie Gorelick, and staffer Dietrich Snell.He then provides a useful overview of the suppression and obfuscation of evidence in the 9/11 Commission Report.He concludes that the Commission has produced a thoroughly false "history" of the events in order to establish and maintain ideological hegemony over all thought about them.
Bryan Sacks, an adjunct professor at Drexel University who has written widely on 9/11 skepticism, conspiracies and the media, argues that there's good evidence of planes colliding with both the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.The "No Planes Theory," he says, is one of many misleading ideas that muddy the pond in the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Sacks leans towards an account in which al-Qaida is solely responsible for the attacks, but the U.S. government consciously allows the destruction to occur.He notes that it is not easy to disentangle the United States and groups like al-Qaida, whose members have received U.S. support and been used as proxies in other U.S. campaigns.But, like Polinow, he's most interested simply in demonstrating that an independent investigation of the events of 9/11 is needed.To make that point, no UFOs or holograms are necessary. "There's a propensity in the media to lump us all together, and let the most spectacular of the stories stand in for the rest," he says."It makes good copy, and it allows you to write off everything as kooky." Still, Sacks won't discount any particular theory. "What's been said most to discredit 9/11 skeptics is, 'You're a conspiracy theorist,'" he says.
