A Groundbreaking, meticulous, and scientific analysis of
the 9/11 conspiracy theories
The first conspiracy theories about September 11 began to
emerge while the wreckage was still smoldering. Today,
nearly five years later, hundreds of books and thousands of
Web pages are devoted to the idea that the U.S. government
encouraged, permitted, or actually carried out the attacks.
These theories claim to be based on hard evidence. But an
in-depth investigation by POPULAR MECHANICS--first published
in the magazine's March 2005 issue, and now greatly expanded
into book form--definitively proves that the evidence most
often cited by conspiracy theorists is inaccurate,
misinterpreted, or false.
The original article in
POPULAR MECHANICS caused a huge groundswell of interest,
setting off online debates that continue to this day.
Debunking 9/11 Myths expands that investigation to
include the 20 most prominent and persistent claims
underlying the conspiracy theories, focusing on concrete,
physical facts rather than political hypothesizing. Among
the issues examined: claims that air traffic control
violated standard operating procedures by not immediately
intercepting the stricken jets; that the fire caused by the
crashes wasn't actually hot enough to melt steel and cause
structural damage in the World Trade Center; that the holes
in the Pentagon were too small to have been made by a Boeing
757; and that Flight 93 was actually shot down by an Air
The fascinating and in-depth findings
come from leading experts in all the relevant fields,
including aviation, air defense, air traffic control, civil
engineering, firefighting, metallurgy, and geology.
With a foreword by Senator John McCain.
