Good and Bad Books on Terrorism

Good books on terrorism and 9/11 are:

Terrorism [John Pynchon Holms, et al]
The 9/11 Commission Report
The Terror Timeline [Paul Thompson & CCR] (my criticisms are posted at http://cooperativeresearch.org/phorum5/read.php?3,645 but it is still an excellent book well worth the money)
Inside 9/11: What Really Happened [Der Spiegel Magazine]
1000 Years For Revenge [Peter Lance] (I'm on p. 220; outstanding so far)
The 9/11 Investigations [Craig R. Whitney and Steven Strasser]
A Nation Challenged [New York Times]
Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists [Benjamin Netanyahu]

The foremost conspiracist book on 9/11 is The New Pearl Harbor by David Ray Griffin, with the best summary of conspiracist arguments. Don't buy it unless you're curious or are a serious, truth-seeking researcher who wants to see some of the lies promoted by 9/11 conspiracy theorists. God help Griffin. I hope he realizes his mistakes and joins the anti-conspiracy group.

Bad books on 9/11 and terrorism are:
Crossing the Rubicon [Michael C. Ruppert]
9/11: The Big Lie [Thierry Meyssan] (the worst 9/11 book ever, rightly called "apalling conspiracist trash" by Chip Berlet of http://publiceye.org)
The 9/11 Report: Omissions and Distortions [David Ray Griffin]
Pentagate [Thierry Meyssan]
9/11 Synthetic Terror: Madew in USA [Webster Griffin Tarpley]
Inside Job: Unmasking the 9/11 Conspiracies [Jim Marrs]
The Big Wedding [Sander Hicks]
Painful Questions [Eric Hufschmid]
Waking Up From Our Nightmare [Don Paul & Jim Hoffman]
9/11 Revealed [Rowland Morgan & Ian Henshall]
The War on Freedom: How and Why America Was Attacked, Septembber 11, 2001 [Nafeez Mossadeq Ahmed]
