In "The Big Lie", Thierry Meyssan sheds new light on the 9/11 Pentagon and World Trade Center crashes.
As a keen observer of international affairs, he had been intrigued by anomalies revealed in the first photographs of the attack against the Pentagon, and also by the confusion and contradictions surrounding the official reports concerning the World Trade Center and then the involvement of Afghanistan in the attack. The New York Fire Dept. has asked for an independent enquiry, owing to the fact that Tower Seven did not collapse because of the plane crashes, and that explosions were heard. In Washington, the facade of the Pentagon was damaged along 19 metres, but a Boeing's wingspan is at least 38 metres. Yet, no debris was found on the Pentagon's lawn. Thierry Meyssan's inquiry into the events of September 11th sheds new light on the overlooked evidence, the contradictory testimonies, and the Pentagon's refusal to allow an independent enquiry into the crashes.
Further, the trail of disturbing evidence leads us into Afghanistan, and into the very heart of the United States' war machine, revealing perhaps one of the greatest deceptions in history.
The text is based entirely on White House and Defense documents in addition to statements made to the press by top-ranking civil and military officials, thus all the evidence is open to verification by the reader.
The book is in fair condition, with light foxing to many pages.
There is bumping to the corners of the paperback cover.
