September 11- The New Pearl Harbor. A Full and Complete Examination of 911

“Further, the process of transformation (of the military), even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor.” PNAC policy report, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses”, entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force” September 2000. (Source)


“September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor” is a 5 hour documentary by Massimo Mazzucco that summarizes 12 years of public debate on 9-11. While aimed primarily at a general, uninformed audience, the film also contains some new findings that may be of interest to advanced researchers.

8/10 Stars Compelling, whether you believe the theories or not
10 July 2015 | by sccoverton (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I write this review only to provide some sense of balance, as at the time of writing there is only one other review on here.

I have no particular opinion on whether 9/11 was an inside job or not, neither do I believe in the New World Order or anything else like that. I was attracted to this film by its length and by how its arguments are constructed using publicly-available documentation, news footage, and the arguments of its /detractors/. There are some talking heads in support of the overall argument, but they are kept to a minimum. It is, in a way, an excellent example of the socratic method, whereby simply questioning a person (or organisation, or government) on its stance can cause it to break down and refute itself.

As such, it is a compelling watch. I watched it in two sittings in one day, and I didn't really feel the time. The arguments are carefully chosen, supported and summarised, each one with a single, simple question aimed at the proponents of the official story. Whatever you believe about 9/11, this is an admirably constructed documentary that is very clear in its purpose and demonstrates the kind of research and insight that is only possible in the Internet age, where disparate people of a shared mind can combine their time and resources and produce something way beyond the sum of their parts.

And to be honest, if you watch this you will at least be made aware of the very fluid nature of "truth" in a late-capitalist world, if not entirely swayed to the side of those who question the official 9/11 story. I recommend this to anyone who cares - or thinks they care - about truth, freedom and democracy. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3828916/



"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."-Karl Rove (Source)
