and 7. Dr. Kevin Barrett has written a gospel for a new generation of post-9/11 skeptics.
This ebullient book strikes a confident keynote for this sudden coming of age. It

Millions of people now know the main arguments for the thesis 9/11 was an inside job, starting from the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center buildings No. 1, 2 and 7. Even a champion of orthodoxy like Time Magazine was obliged to note that the 9/11 Truth Movement is no longer a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream reality. Kevin Barrett takes this now-familiar thesis as a springboard to new territory in this book. Like Jack Kerouac in On the Road, Barrett has written a gospel for a new generation of post – 9/11 sceptics.This ebullient book strikes a confident keynote for this sudden coming of age. It is a tonic draft of courage for millions of disenfranchised 9/11 truthers – and for the uneasy majority who sense that America, once a beacon of ideals for humanity, is no longer on the right track. Truth Jihad is the first 9/11 Truth book that is not primarily tasked with proving 9/11 was an inside job to our fellow humanity.

About the Author
From Publishers Weekly:
Barrett, a Muslim convert and Islamic studies professor, is neither hysterical nor a fool, but a thoughtful, questioning and careful man whose outrage nevertheless overwhelms evidence in support of his belief that the tragic events of 9/11 “had been an obvious inside job … and that the perpetrators are hiding in plain sight, in ‘undisclosed locations’ at the highest levels of the US government.” Barrett brings up many intriguing points, such as the contention, central to many 9/11 conspiracy theories, that the towers fell as a result of controlled demolition, and an intriguing anecdote about the ease with which mainstream media-even French media, “three times as smart and four times as skeptical as their American counterparts”-can be duped. Though his tangents into topics such as religion, UFOs and 9/11 jokes are enlightening, and his sociological observations are often insightful-such as his take on the “new pseudo-religion of post-9/11 ‘patriotism,'” beget by “spectacular human sacrifice” and “mirroring the worst kind of Christian tradition, itself based on the human-sacrifice image of the Crucifixion”-he doesn’t back conclusions with hard facts, directing readers to other books and Web sites to learn the “truth.” Though Barrett struggles mightily to make an objective case for the government’s culpability in 9/11, raising some worthy points along the way, he’s preaching to the converted.
