David Ray Griffin

“Coast to Coast with George Noory” presents a 9-11 Roundtable

“A 4-hour panel discussion investigating theories behind 9-11 was held featuring four guests, all of whom expressed the belief that there are holes in the official story. Peter Lance and Mike Levine leaned towards the view that the government was negligent but didn’t plan the attacks, while the other two panelists David Ray Griffin and Alex Jones suspect an “inside job” to varying extents.” Listen to it here.

“Alex Jones, a documentary filmmaker and political researcher, pointed towards a “shadow” government above Pres.…

Building Bridges to a New Media

– A 9/11 Team Report-back from the St. Louis Media Reform Conference By Les Jamieson

In a time of universal deceit by our mainstream media, the media watchdog group opened its annual Conference on Media Reform in St. Louis on May 13. The event sold out bringing in 2,500 alternative media workers from all 50 states. There were independent journalists, people with local cable access shows, alternative radio shows and alternative print publications. The stellar lineup of speakers included the likes of Phil Donahue, Jim Hightower, Bill Moyers, Amy Goodman, and Al Franken to name a few.…

Getting Agnostic About 9/11

A society of nonbelievers questions the official version

Original at,1,3835884.story?coll=la-headlines-magazine&ctrack=1&cset=true.


Anyone who types the words “9/11” and “conspiracy” into an online search engine soon learns that not everybody buys the official narrative of what took place on Sept. 11, 2001. As a professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, 66-year-old David Ray Griffin would seem to have more affinity for leather elbow patches than tin hats, yet after friends and colleagues prodded him into sifting through the evidence, he experienced a conversion.…

August 2005 Update

Developments in Britain

(1) Oxford group plans a march and rally on Sept. 10th to culminate its 9/11 Truth Week. On Aug. 6, the Daily Mail printed the biggest article ever in the UK mainstream press to reject the official mythology of September 11th. Following the horrible London bombings of July 7, the official story has unraveled in record time. A new 7/7 truth movement is underway. And the sudden Aug. 6 death of Robin Cook spotlights his final column in The Guardian , in which he wrote that “al-Qaeda” (the base) originated as a CIA database…

What Action Looks Like: Going Viral with 9/11 Truth

Millions of people are at various levels of discovery that the official explanation of 9/11 is a lie. They are at some point in the process of realizing that some clandestine element at the highest levels of our government and military orchestrated a self-inflicted terrorist act to enflame U.S citizens into supporting an aggressive imperial agenda abroad, and a homeland security/police state regime at home as we relinquish our cherished civil liberties.

by Les Jamieson

Dr. David Ray Griffin spoke to packed audiences this weekend, in two engagements sponsored by, WBAI, and MUJCA-NET. Griffin’s presentations, focusing on the collapse of the WTC towers, are summarized here, including ten charactistics of the collapses that bring the “official story” into further question.’, ‘

Even after four years, controversy over the events of 9/11 continues to surface in the news. We recently witnessed the honest questioning of the official account by a FDNY Muslim chaplain which gave rise to a storm of intolerance and deflection of any actual and legitimate inquiry into the official account of the attacks.…

Mission improbable: Author challenges the official story of 9/11

By Greg Guma
Vermont Guardian


Burlington– For more than four years, the public has repeatedly been urged to ignore “outrageous” conspiracies theories about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that set in motion the so-called “war on terrorism.” However, the official explanation that has been provided — and widely embraced — also requires the acceptance of a theory, one involving a massive intelligence failure, 19 Muslim hijackers under the sway of Osama bin Laden, and the inability of the world’s most advanced Air Force to intercept four commercial airplanes.…

University of Minnesota Duluth

As an expression of support for those who are attempting to expose the truth about the events of 9/11 for the benefit of the American people, I am posting the penultimate version of a chapter I have submitted to David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott for publication in their volume, 9/11 AND THE AMERICAN EMPIRE (forthcoming). I stand with Steve Jones, Professor of Physics at Brigham Young, David Ray Griffin, Professor Emeritus of Theology at Claremont, and other students and scholars of 9/11, who believe that extraordinary times require extraordinary measures.…

Possible Motives Of The Bush Administration – By Dr. David Ray Griffin

Possible Motives Of The Bush Administration – By Dr. David Ray Griffin

The 9/11 Commission understood that its mandate, as we have seen, was to provide “the fullest possible account” of the “facts and circumstances” surrounding 9/11. Included in those facts and circumstances are ones that, according to some critics of the official account of 9/11, provide evidence that the Bush administration intentionally allowed the attacks of 9/11. Some critics have even suggested that the Bush administration actively helped the attacks succeed.

Now That You Know, What Can You Do?

After years of extensive research, the 9/11 Truth Movement has compiled a tremendous amount of evidence that not only exposes the 9/11 Commission Report as a whitewash, but also strongly suggests that elements within the US Government were complicit in the 9/11 attacks. We are not at a time in history where we can afford to be complacent. We cannot sit back, and “let someone else take care of it.” We must act, and we must act now.…

Explosive Testimony: Revelations about the Twin Towers in the 9/11 Oral Histories

by David Ray Griffin

“[T]here was just an explosion [in the south tower]. It seemed like on television [when] they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions.”

–Firefighter Richard Banaciski

“I saw a flash flash flash [at] the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building?”

–Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory

“[I]t was [like a] professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear ‘Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop’.”

–Paramedic Daniel Rivera


The above quotations come from a collection of 9/11 oral histories that, although recorded by the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) at the end of 2001, were publicly released only on August 12, 2005.…

The Destruction of the World Trade Center: Why the Official Account Cannot Be True

In The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 (2004), I summarized dozens of facts and reports that cast doubt on the official story about 9/11. Then in The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions (2005a), I discussed the way these various facts and reports were treated by the 9/11 Commission, namely, by distorting or simply omitting them. I have also taken this big-picture approach, with its cumulative argument, in my previous essays and lectures on 9/11 (Griffin, 2005b and 2005d).…

Dr. David Ray Griffin On Air America’s Mike Malloy Show

February 22, 2006
Recently, Mike Malloy from Air America, had an amazing show about 9/11. During that show, he said that the “Bush Crime Family” was responsible for 9/11.

Dr. David Ray Griffin joined Mike on 2/22/06 to discuss 9/11. It was an excellent interview, and one that should be passed around.

New Video–September 11 Revisited

February 26, 2006

Originally put together as a project to present questions about 9/11 to his family and friends, Dustin Mugford may have unwittingly produced one of the most valuable contributions to the 9/11 video library to date. “September 11 Revisited” is a powerful documentary which “features eyewitness accounts and news footage that was shot on September 11, 2001 and was never replayed again on television…until now.” Also included are excerpts from David Ray Griffin’s Madison, Wisconsin speech which was broadcast on C-Span2, a local TV interview with BYU physics professor Steven E.…
