The Shock Doctrine
Welcome to ShockDoctrine.com. This website is more than a promotional tool for a book, although you can receive the latest news about The Shock Doctrine, read reviews , and see where you can purchase a copy .
The process of researching The Shock Doctrine was so fascinating and revelatory that I was left with a strong desire to share as much of my own discovery experience as possible — to steer readers to the books, essays, documentary films and primary documents that did so much to shape The Shock Doctrine . In that spirit, ShockDoctrine.com is designed to serve as a living companion to the book for readers — particularly students and educators — who want to delve deeper into the book’s material and themes, and who want to see the evidence for themselves.
Debra Levy, a trained librarian, was the primary researcher for The Shock Doctrine , working for years on the project. After the book was complete, she dedicated herself to opening up our research files and putting them online, curating, along with designer Andrew Childs,… Continue reading

Since it’s release a year ago, the documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent expose of an under-reported 9/11 cover-up as revealed by leading 9/11 families and author Paul Thompson, has become an underground hit that continues to garner support and positive recognition as time passes and word spreads. The film has received near universally excellent critical reviews while being officially selected and screened at three international film festivals including in Brazil and Mexico. Here in the US several hundred home, library and theatrical screenings rallied tens of thousands to support a new investigation while US satellite networks, FreeSpeech TV and LINKTV , beamed the film to millions of households across the country. Overseas, the film has reached tens of millions via television networks in Spain, Poland, Norway, Sweden and throughout the Middle East via Al-Jazeera. On the net, the complete film has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
In the run-up to September 11th this year there is continued interest. In Australia and New Zealand on the 11th, Foxtel owned History Channel will broadcast the television premiere of the film in both countries. FreespeechTV will broadcast the documentary 5 times on Tuesday while LinkTV will broadcast the film on both Monday and Tuesday.
In Minneapolis former FBI agent Colleen Rowley has recorded public service announcements for the Air America affiliate to promote a screening of 9/11: Press for Truth in a 700 seat theater.… Continue reading
Anti-war icon supports move for new investigation into 9/11
Paul Joseph Watson Prison Planet Thursday, May 31, 2007
Anti-war icon Cindy Sheehan has gone public on her support for the 9/11 truth movement after she told a radio show that the collapse of the twin towers looked like a controlled demolition and that there should be a new investigation into the terrorist attacks.
Sheehan, who made headlines this week after she distanced herself from the Democratic party and the establishment left, joined Alex Jones to share her views on her skepticism towards the official 9/11 story.
Sheehan said her decision to desert the Democrats was sparked last week when the Iraq war funding bill was passed and it was at this point she realized the Democrats had co-opted her simply to help them regain Congress and that they had no interest in ending the war.
Sheehan attacked Hillary Clinton as a “warhawk and a “warmonger” and said there was very little distinction between her and John McCain or Rudy Giuliani.
On 9/11, Sheehan expressed her support for the Jersey Girl’s petition, which calls for a new independent investigation of the terrorist attacks, slamming the 9/11 Commission Report as a “total travesty and a smokescreen.”
“George Bush and Dick Cheney held hands and testified behind closed doors, not under oath,” said Sheehan, adding, “There are many things that just don’t add up on that day.”
Sheehan questioned why U.S. air defenses were distracted by drills and exercises scheduled for the morning… Continue reading
Recently, Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth founder Justin Martell interviewed Ohio Representative and presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.
Justin Martell: Can you maybe address the 9/11 truth movement?
Dennis Kucinich: First of all, you have to understand that all over the country people are concerned about whether or not they’ve been told the truth about 9/11 and the way that the administration handled 9/11, taking us into a war against Iraq that had nothing to do with 9/11. It deepened people’s suspicions about the possibility there may have been a cover-up. Because, why would the government lie about a cause for war? And so, what I’m saying is that I respect the concerns people have about whether they’ve been told the truth or not.
Because I want to be president of the United States, I know that unless you address that lack of trust, you’re not going to be able to successfully lead a nation. And I want to be quite specific about this. It’s my intention as Chairman of the Domestic Policy Subcommittee to focus in on two areas that I’ve — there are a number of areas, probably dozens of areas that haven’t been appropriately probed. But I know of two, that I’m looking at. I’m not at liberty to discuss exactly what they are, but our committee will hold hearings on two discreet areas that have major implications with respect to the story that Americans have been told about 9/11.… Continue reading

Boston Tea Party 2006
In the spirit of American patriots who on December 16, 1773 rebuked Great Britain’s tyranny by tossing crates of British tea into Boston Harbor, the Boston 9/11 Truth Committee, today enacted their own “9/11 Truth Tea Party,” calling on “all American Sons and Daughters of Liberty to cast-off the tyranny, deceit and lies imposed on the American public by way of the official 9/11 Commission Report.”
On this truly historic day, the anniversary of the original Boston Tea Party in 1773, modern day Patriots cast the “9/11 Commission Report” into harbors in Boston and across the US, in reenactments of the original demand for representation.
Great job, Patriots!
[This story will be updated as new reports, photos and videos arrive.][12/27--Added St. Louis, 12/31--Added Milwaukee, more DC]
Similar events inspired by the Boston group sprouted up around the country including dc911truth.org, who “shredded” the 9/11 Commission Report in front of the White House. Sf911truth.org dumped a larger than life replica of the report into the San Francisco Bay while members of pa911visibility.com tossed an actual copy of the report into the Delaware river. Similar actions took place in Milwaukee, St. Louis, and other places around the country, all in an act of protest against the 9/11 Commission Report and in solidarity with the 9/11 activists in Boston.
The events were generally kicked off with a reading of the Boston 9/11 truth resolution (below) or similar document, followed by a symbolic dumping of the… Continue reading

Jenna Orkin, of WTC Environmental Organization www.wtceo.org, describes the envirotoxic disaster of 9/11, horrendous health effects on residents and rescuers, and lies of the administration that led to the situation.
“Jenna…details how the Bush administration Environmental Protection Agency told the public that the air in Lower Manhattan after the attacks of 9/11 was safe to breathe even while knowing is was not. This raises the question: if the Bush administration was willing to sacrifice the health and the lives of United States citizens, what else would they be willing to do?”
Michael Berger, Media Coordinator for 911Truth.org, has been invited to debate Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine TOMORROW, Thursday, 9/28, from 11am to 1pm Mountain Time, on the Dino Costa show, www.dinocosta.com.
Michael Berger is also director of the new movie, Improbable Collapse, co-written with Rebecca Cerese, award-winning documentary filmmaker (February 1: The Story of the Greensboro Four). The movie addresses the demolition of the towers on 9/11, with the concurrent demolition of our Republic.
Matthew Rothschild recently authored Enough of the 9/11 Conspiracies, Already, published on September 11, 2006 at the Progressive.org.
Dino Costa introduces Mr. Rothschild as believing, “any talk about a coverup are [sic] wrong and irresponsible.”

9/11 Facts and Myths: Charles Goyette interviews Davin Coburn, editor / researcher of PM’s original 9/11 conspiracy slam
PM – Popular Mechanics: Davin Coburn “researcher, editor, reporter on the original 9/11 article”
CG – Charles Goyette, Radio Show Host
CG: Is there information that has not been given to the public?
PM: Very little… there is very little that has been held back as far as the basic facts of what happened that morning in terms of the material we looked into.
CG: I was under the impression that there were a lot of facts that were withheld. I mean, the surveillance videos, for example, around the Pentagon we were told about: a hotel video, a convenience store video, we haven’t seen those. Apparently they were swooped up very quickly or so the report goes.
PM: That is the case, those have been taken for larger criminal investigations those are now being disclosed to the public, you know with the Judicial Watch material…
CG: I’ve talked with the guys at Judicial Watch, and they’re not very happy about it, they released like four frames that don’t really show much of anything.…Continue reading
Is The Official Story Falling Apart? Or Are We Seeing An Un-Controlled Demolition?
– CNN, Westminster John Knox Press, Air America help move the story along
In the past few weeks the 9/11 Truth Movement has continued to move forward, propelled by a gentle nudge from a mainstream news source, a solid bump from the publishing arm of a major American church, and a full-fledged jolt from Air America.
The Nudge: CNN’s Lou Dobbs Wakes Up To 9/11 Lies
In this short clip, Lou discusses the new book Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission, written by 9/11 Commission co-chairmen Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, who claim that the commission was lied to, not once but consistently, by the FAA and NORAD.

Among other comments, you will hear the following from Lou Dobbs: Well, this government doesn’t deserve much credibility, does it? In point of fact, if all of the after-action reports are untrue, for whatever reason, that’s a lie, because they were asserted as true by people who knew better, or should have.
Incompetence and ineptitude on the part of this government, on September 11th and in the weeks and months leading up to it, are established.
Controversial Instructor Speaks About His 9/11 Views, UW Course
Kevin Barrett Appears On ‘For The Record’
By Adam Malecek, Staff Writer
MADISON, Wis. — Controversial University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer Kevin Barrett appeared on WISC-TV’s “For The Record,” discussing his views on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Islamic studies and the class he is teaching this fall at UW-Madison.
Recently, 61 state legislators signed a resolution calling for UW-Madison to fire Barrett over his outspoken views that the U.S. government orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
UW-Madison Provost Patrick Farrell reviewed Barrett’s record and decided he was qualified to teach an introductory course on Islam as scheduled in the fall. Farrell said that the university doesn’t endorse Barrett’s theories, but he said that his review found Barrett has a record of quality teaching.
On “For The Record,” Barrett said his views are always evolving but explained how his current thoughts on 9/11 developed.
This article is quite fine, but watch the absolutely splendid interview video! Barrett’s lengthy, warm and compelling tour de force should be seen and studied by anyone facing civil questioning of their 9/11 beliefs. Like Dr. Stephen Jones, Kevin brings an extremely sympathetic and human voice to what are essentially horrific conversations and gives listeners both courage and hope in the process. The video can be downloaded for podcasting and other forms of sharing, and we urge you to share it widely.
He said that immediately after the attacks, he… Continue reading
NINE-ONE-ONE — This three number combination is etched into the public psyche and instantly conjures up images of America’s most recent Day of Infamy. The images of chaos and terror were speedily delivered via satellite to anyone near a television set. At first, these images burst into the minds of the TV audience without context, but television viewers were not left long to worry their beautiful minds with troublesome questions like: “Who perpetrated these crimes?”
The narrative vacuum was quickly filled by the “official” story. This version of the events of 9/11 is forever enshrined in the volume known as The 9/11 Commission Report.
Proceeding apace with the development of the official story was an entire universe of unofficial stories. These alternative points of view were helpfully framed by President George Walker Bush on November 10th, 2001:
“We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty.” (1)
More than a few watching the President address the UN that day were puzzled by the phrase “outrageous conspiracy theories” regarding 9/11. As they logged on to their dial-up Internet connections that evening, trying to understand what the President was talking about, they were privy to the nascent chatter that over time has morphed into a kaleidoscope of alternative narratives, fueled by 9/11 skepticism.
As new… Continue reading
A Call for Unity in the 9/11 Truth Community
By: John J. Albanese
Stand with me. Today’s editorial is a shameless plea for unity and support. Time is short. Today’s headlines relentlessly warn us of a pending nuclear crisis, and the deafening drumbeats of war, and the inevitable clash of civilizations that threatens to devour us whole. Never mind that the rhetoric swirling around the Iran crisis mimics the rhetoric that swirled around the debacle in Iraq. Never mind that the facts are being skewed once again. American foreign policy appears to be executing a full-court press to conflict and oblivion.
And at the bottom of this rubble-heap of American foreign policy lies the all but forgotten truth and hidden history behind the worst terrorist attacks in American history.
“We will never forget,” we all vowed after 9/11. And we meant it. But sadly, 4 ? years after the fact, 9/11 has already become commercialized, dramatized and fictionalized by such Hollywood confections as Universal Studio’s “United 93″ and Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center.” And while we can debate endlessly the degree of historical accuracy of these films, Hollywood has, for all intents and purposes, turned the tragedy of 9/11 into entertainment for the masses, and has tread upon our sacred vows.
But there are those among us who know that something is seriously wrong. From the start, there are those among us who were not satisfied to simply put their trust in the ‘official story.’ There are those among… Continue reading
We are pleased to share this audio file of David Ray Griffin’s lecture, “9/11 and the American Empire: A Christian Critique,” presented Mar. 25 in Santa Barbara. (download here)
Now Available–Oakland Event Audio
March 30, 2006:
911Truth.org exclusive: The author of The New Pearl Harbor, David Ray Griffin, made a return last Saturday to his accustomed discipline, theology, addressing “9/11, American Empire, and Christian Faith” in an early-morning lecture to an audience crowding into the Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara, CA. The evidence that 9/11 was a false flag attack is very strong, Griffin argued, lamenting that most Americans reject the idea as beyond the pale ? their own government could never do such a thing! ? without examining the facts. In reality, false flag attacks are historically common, frequently used by empires to provide pretexts for war and create the enemy images necessary for rallying a fearful people behind imperial policy. The history of the United States has not been different in this regard, as Griffin makes clear. But those who attain these insights, especially with regard to 9/11, are forced to take action. Griffin therefore asks his fellow “Christians in America” how they should “respond to the realization that we are living… Continue reading
Mike Malloy from Air America, acknowledges the heart breaking, criminal event that was 9/11. He gives an amazing show that talks about a lot of topics, but the premise of the show seems to be that all of what’s happening now, has stemmed from 9/11.
