|Its called L'Effroyable Imposture ("The Terrifying Fraud"). Dunno if it's translated yet.
thanks! maybe i'll take a crack at it---as long as it's factual
and the material is reasonably well-organized i might be able to get through it in french, that is, if i want some stimulating non-fiction bedtime reading. . .
"Non-fiction" hmm... The author Thierry Meyssan's main claim is that there was no plane crash at the Pentagon on 9/11: that the "crash" was faked by unnamed American secret services which used a truck bomb to cause minor damage. The book sold over 100,000 copies in France but I don't think any English translation was published. You'll find a summary w further links here and commentary with pix here -- Pentagon wasn't destroyed, no plane parts are visible in photos, ergo no plane crash, right?
I reckon Meyssan was just out to make himself a bundle of money. That his "theory" could be taken seriously over there suggests either mass gullibility or severe paranoia about the Pentagon. Or both.
Ah! This same book contains the low-down on the bush wwii connection? It does sound fanciful--a collection of badass paranoid rumors about Ugly Americanism.
The version of "9/11:U.S.-did-itself" that I heard from France involved the oft-repeated story of the Israelis being behind the WTC bombing--but as surrogates for U.S. neo-cons and spooky pro-warriors behind the scenes. I'm all for a good political conspiracy theory, but this one's an eyeball-roller I'd say,
Let's put that "non-fiction" in quotes, or call it "faction."
