The Suppression of Truth in the Land of Lies: An Oxymoron

If you are interested in reading the definitive book that demolishes the official lies about the attacks of September 11, 2001 – 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth – then Amazon has a great deal for you.  While they conveniently do not offer new copies of this book that was published on September 11th, having reported it “out of print” and currently “out of stock,” after never having had it in stock, they allegedly offer 3 used paperback copies from other sellers for sale prices that are quite affordable: $917.04, $1060.20, and $1,500.

If that 4 or 20 cents would bring you over budget, I would be glad to provide either amount.

Don’t these sound like great deals for a book that proves that the justification for the “war on terror” and the slaughter of millions of people is one of the biggest propaganda operations in modern history?  It’s always good to know you have a friend who can conveniently provide you with access to the truth at a fair price.

I must say, however, that Amazon offers a slightly better deal for another book they also never directly sold for some odd reason – Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News by Dr. Udo Ulfkotte – a book that exposes the CIA infiltration of the major media throughout the world.  You can allegedly pick that one up through Amazon’s kind medium services for either $900 or $997.09, but that’s for a hardcover.

One person reports having seen a used copy of 9/11 Unmasked appear at one week after its official publication date of September 11 (an odd fact in itself), and when he ordered it, the book never arrived.  When he contacted the seller, he received a message from Amazon saying that the order had been cancelled, but no reason was given.  When the person tried to post a negative review of the seller, Amazon refused to publish it.

These days truth is temporarily out of stock.  No reason given.  People and books just disappear in this land of make-believe.

If it bothers you a bit that Amazon, through its Amazon Web Services, provides the CIA and other intelligence agencies with a “Secret Region” cloud service that complements Jeff Bezos’s other business, The Washington Post, don’t be alarmed.  I have conveyed a question through a certain medium’s mediumship to the deceased Frank Wisner, who is presumably beyond the clouds.  He was the CIA’s architect of what he called his “mighty Wurlitzer,” on which he could play any propaganda tune he wanted through the CIA’s penetration through a covert action campaign of the mass media, journalists, student groups, women’s groups, and more.  I have asked him if there is anything untoward about any of these strange arrangements that so many readers of my review of 9/11 Unmasked have complained about: that for some strange reason they have been unable to get the book through Amazon.

As I hopefully await the medium’s response from Wisner, you may get impatient.  In that case you can immediately purchase the book through the publisher, Interlink Publishing, for $20.  It should save you quite a bit of time waiting.

But I’ll let you know if I hear anything.

  1. Bizarre game they’re playing. But some copies seem to be squeaking through. Coincidental with your posting this article, I have just received notice from my mail service* that my copy of the book has arrived in town. I placed the order with Amazon on September 13, it was shipped on September 15, it was delivered to the mail service’s depot in the U.S. on September 19.

    I have watched the price and availability fluctuate almost daily since placing my order. That is, the price for the brand new copies (whether nominally available or unavailable/out-of-stock). This twenty dollar book has been as high as $24.46, and as low as $15.92 (I might have missed a day in there somewhere). Today it’s $20 (and “temporarily out of stock”). Had I known that a used copy (used? so quickly? perhaps by an Evelyn Wood graduate?) could be had for as little as $917.04, I would have jumped on it. That four cents would have been no obstacle, thanks.

    This morning, I ordered a second copy (to be sent to my U.S. address), but this time am buying it from the publisher (ethically/morally speaking – Amazon being what it is – I should have done that in the first place, but was curious as to how this Amazon weirdness would resolve itself if I placed the order with them).

    * I live out of the country, and have mail sent to a U.S. address, which mail is then taken across the border, and through customs, by courier.

  2. UPDATE to my previous comment: The book did arrive (intact, as far as I can tell), and I picked it up at my mail box yesterday, September 26. The other copy I ordered from the publisher on Tuesday was shipped that day and arrived in New York today, Thursday, September 27.

    At least two copies weren’t suppressed.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. The Amazon site continues to be weird, however; says “temporarily out of stock when except for a few hours on 9/19 when they said they had 4 copies and then 1, it has never said the book was in stock direct from Amazon.

  3. I placed an order for a copy from an independent local bookseller a week or so ago and haven’t had a call about it yet. I’ll try Interlink if the local store can’t get it from its distributor and doesn’t want to purchase a copy, or several, from publisher.

    Speaking of the Washington Post, it’s mentioned in “Shock and Awe,” a 2018 movie you may want to review about how the Bush/Cheney White House lied the United States into the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after September 11, 2001. You could review another 2018 movie, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” in the same post.

  4. Ed- just seeing this post. It precisely mirrors my own experience: I ordered the book for 20 bucks or so on Amazon; I was told a few days later that it was out of stock; I was told simultaneously by the bookseller (in a weirdly illiterate email) that it was suddenly unavailable due to “damaged”; I wrote a negative review about the experience on Amazon; it was rejected for publication; I turned to Interlink directly and received the book a few days later without difficultly. (So far.)
