Though most britons thought the Afghan war justified in the aftermath of 9/11, Griffin shows that it was a legally and morally unjust war from the outset. He demonstrates that the official account of events of 9/11 would have required a dozen miracles - which he interprets as violations of the principals of science - and asks Why do many left-leaning journalists, who in most contexts would emphatically reject the possibility of miracles, nevertheless endorse the official account? Griffin also asks how the controlled demolition of Building a huge, 47-story building was hidden in plain sight. Turning to the Pentagon, Griffin asks whether there is any evidence for the view that it was struck by American Airlines Flight 77. Where is the evidence that the attacks were carried out by Muslim terrorists? And, in the wake of Osama Bin Laden's death in May this year, Griffin seeks to resolve how involved Bin Laden wa sin the planning of the attacks, and whether he was a convenient scapegoat.
