A Sober Analysis Of Some Very Troubling Thoughts

- “In this short book, I argue that there is strong evidence that the events of 11th September represent a terrorism of a kind not currently being discussed, and include the involvement of agents and agencies not publicly imagined as being associated with such acts. I believe that this suspicion, voiced by many others, must be taken seriously and its public disproof demanded by all concerned citizens and NGOs.” Author Michael Rowbotham writes. See... Michael Rowbotham: Written In Belief [1]
