Respected social scientists examine America's cognitive dissonance. Our inability to reconcile the observable facts and science of 9/11 with our governments lazy, sloppy explanations. Our governments activities since 9/11 have left many Americans very bewildered. The scientific facts of 9/11 from the government don't add up. Now we are uneasy and debate has been banned from TV. What do we do?
Ed Asner (Actor):
Since 9/11 thousands of soldiers and millions of innocent civilians have been killed. The 'War on Terror' keeps escalating. Because of 9/11 precious civil liberties have been lost, in the U.S. and around the world. We Americans can be subject to searches and seizures without a warrant; we can be detained indefinitely without a charge, without evidence, without a lawyer, without a trial. The psychology professionals tell us that looking at the truth of 9/11 isn't easy. 9/11 was ...

One of the 9/11 documentaries I've seen so far - up there w/ 9/11 explosive evidence
At our home, on the 9/11 anniversary, we watch 9/11 retropsectives that usually feature recollections from first responders and survivors, news clips, families discussing their loss, etc., but don't really ask any hard questions.
On the other end of the spectrum, we've seen 9/11 discussions on Infowars, from independent journalists, YouTubers and the like that are vitriolic and get caught up in wrangling over who the perpetrators were, who wasn't in NYC that day, who stood to benefit and why - questions all of which need to be answered but are ever subject to change and shift as more evidence is brought to light with the passage of time.
Both extremes for me come up short.
While singling out "The project for a new American century" and a few prominent government lackeys pushing the official narrative, this documentary for the most part avoids the endless minutiae extrapolated from poring over documents and demonizing the deaf blind men who still perpetuate the 9/11 myth (see for example Webster Tarpley's ponderous tome "9/11: synthetic terror" that gets thicker and thicker with each subsequent edition) and chooses instead to focus on cognitive dissonance and the painful process it is for the average American to wake up to our nation's precarious situation - something that has to happen on a national scale before the perpetrators are ever finally identified, their methods definitively exposed, and all these other ancillary issues - which agencies and defense contractors, politicians, foreign agents, demolition teams are to blame, etc. - are finally brought to light and laid to rest.
There are a lot of great printed quotes from the world's great thinkers in the montages during and between segments so that while I was watching on my desktop, I found myself puasing to read them on the screen, googling book titles, bringing up articles, and visiting various 9/11 truth websites.
The high point for me was a the most cogent explanation from a structural engineering perspective I've heard yet (about 50 minutes in) as to why the official explanation is not scientifically sound as furnished by architects and engineers for 9/11 truth at ae911truth.org.
Their point was well made that whether we choose to face it or not, the laws of physics tell a different story than the official narrative does and no self-respecting architect or engineer who's worth their salt (or, for that matter, a layperson who can endure a 5-minute high school physics lecture) can accept the official explanation at face value without setting aside their basic education and understanding necessary for their line of work.
Regardless of who the culprits are, coming to terms with our own cognitive dissonance about the paradigm we thought we lived in as well as acknowledging the laws of physics is something we all need to do in order to survive as a nation and that point is very well made here.
That said, the last hour or so after the physics lesson featured a lot of psychologists talking about people having to come out of their comfort zone and come to terms with their world being shattered. One therapist talked about her discussions with her brother and how she was initially revolted that he would suggest that 9/11 was a false flag but that the more she read and researched for herself, the more she realized he was right which left her feeling she'd been cast out into the wilderness.
The last half dragged a bit for me probably because I've been a 9/11 truther almost from the moment the buildings fell. I remember thinking at the time that there were "kingmen" - to use a Book of Mormon term - who were bent on destroying the laws of this nation and 9/11 would be their excuse to do it which this documentary point out with its discussion of our abandoning habeus corpus (1297-2006) as a necessary expediency for waging our endless "war on terror".
In short, if you have friends or family who aren't awake yet and you don't want to aleinate them by being that crazy uncle in the tin-foil hat sputtering nonsense in an effort to try to say everything at once (I've done that too), but you still want to at least start an intelligent dialogue (religion, politics, and 9/11 are the three taboos now as someone in one of the clips says, so you have to tread carefully), then this is documentary is a good way to get the ball rolling.
