Why Steve Alten's "The Shell Game" is prophetic per C-SPAN - AND MUST BE PROMOTED!!

A New York Times best selling author, Steve Alten, has prophetically seen a Bush/Cheney coup, that may end American Democracy, as voiced above by an independat conservative.

All who value Democracy should be spreading the word on the below 90 second trailer.

Below is an email I just got from a 9/11 truth activist I respect greatly:

"Why I strongly support "The Shell Game"!‏"

Here's my review of "The Shell Game" and why I urge everyone to buy it, to support it, immediately

And wow!  Here also are my responses to fellow 9/11 Truth activists who are suspicious and critical of the author's motives.

One in particular articulates an objection to supporting the book on the basis of its "artificial constructs of peak oil, global warming, and Islamic terrorists." I think that's an intelligent phrase, "artificial constructs."  But the 9/11 Truth worker admits she did not read all of the book, as haven't others who are critical. 

Please allow me to share my reasoning to heartily support it, based on having read all of it and taken meticulous notes.

Background:  My own work on 9/11 research (link at the bottom) came about almost immediately -- because I simply could not believe Muslims would do a one-day attack on America and therefore "justify" invasions of their lands!  Seemed to me like a frame-up right from the get-go, especially since early reports from Mohammed Atta's neighbors in Florida made it clear that he and gang (their wild life-style) was NOT that of "Muslim fundamentalists."

And indeed, for all who have looked into it, that's how the evidence has played out.  Also, seeing how egregiously and murderously Muslims are being treated, it therefore has been hard for me to see any fault on their part, on the geopolitical scene. 

However -- first, just regarding human nature -- I've reluctantly learned over my lifetime that there are good guys and bad guys in every faction on Earth.  There ARE wholesome and spiritually minded soldiers in the American military, from the grunts to the generals  And there ARE outright murderers/rapists/evildoers.  There ARE wise and kind and peace-working Muslims in each sect.  And there ARE aggressive and theocratic blowback people who are bent on doing great harm.

What I like about Alten's book is that -- well, frankly, some Americans would call him a traitor because of how thoroughly he exposes American evil-doing (and warns of more to come if we don't stop them)!  And how sympathetically he tells the back-stories of the bomb-carriers from Iraq whose lives have been ripped apart by American aggression.  (Totally unjustified since Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.) 

The author also presents some Shi'a and Sunni dialogue that is highly educational on those particular differences, which even becomes amusing in a human-endearing sense.  In others words -- if it were you, Dear Reader, you too might do what they've decided to do.  Whereas most American literature demonizes Muslims, he humanizes them.  I feel he has done a great service in this regard.
