Naivete is Killing the 9/11 Truth Movement’s Hope for Media Breakthrough !


Naivete among those newer to 9/11 truth is crushing the life from the lungs of hope for our movement breaking through the media blockade.

When I first excitedly discovered that a New York Times best selling author had grabbed the horns of the 9/11 issue, I knew that finally we had a hope of breaking thru the censorship blockade of 9/11 issues.

There were several reasons for that. One was that an action novel is, by its nature, able to reach a much wider audience than non-fiction, especially 9/11 truth non-fiction. Coupled with the fact that a NY Times best selling novelist had written “The Shell Game,” gave us as a movement a POWERFUL opportunity to focus our gathering numbers and drive it to #1.

“The Shell Game”s narrative cleverly wove in real 9/11 facts by David Ray Griffin, and Michael C. Ruppert, that educated the fiction reader in a powerful stealth way, but more than that had the potential of exposing millions to names like “David Ray Griffin” and “Michael Ruppert.”

The gathering reviews of “The Shell Game” show that this indeed happened, many former GOP/Bush supporters even being awakened, and spurred on to google these 9/11 facts once they finished reading “The Shell Game” which they’d picked up as an action war novel. [The Shell Game has risen to as high as #1 in war fiction on]

If “The Shell Game” had become a cause celeb in the 9/11 truth movement, and spidered out in a fever pitch campaign throughout all the facebook, meetup, and multitudinous 9/11 truth websites, with “permanent” ads running on the top of their home pages, to create a mass buying of “The Shell Game” we could have, and still could drive it to #1.

 The old veterans of the 9/11 truth movement recognized the potential of “The Shell Game” from the very get-go. An ad hoc coalition formed around it immediately by all those who had been in the 9/11 truth trenches from the beginning, as indicated by their joint statement:


We, the undersigned, urge everyone seeking truth, peace and justice, to not only purchase this new novel, "The Shell Game," but also to email out this appeal to all you know who seek truth, peace and justice in the form of 9/11 truth coming out.  In turn, please urge them to do the same with all their contacts and urge them to do the same. 

We can break 9/11 truth open if we work together and focus on this project for the next 30 days.

Yours in 9/11 truth, peace and justice,

However, from the beginning, as always happens when a big breakthrough is about to occur for 9/11 truth . . . “The Shell Game” came under attack. The old familiar attacks:

* It didn’t blame the Jews enough
* It was anti-Moslem and blamed it on Arabs [not true, as The Shell Game’s false flag event was conducted out of the White House. The Muslims were only patsies.]
* It didn’t go far enough
* It didn’t get into space weapon beams blowing up the Towers
* It wasn’t this
* or It wasn’t that
