Richard Falk's foreward to Griffin's "The New Pearl Harbor."

Ever since 9/11 the mainstream media have worked hand-in-glove with the government in orchestrating a mood of patriotic fervor making any expressions of doubts about the official leadership of the country tantamount to disloyalty...Waving the American flag became a substitute for critical and independent thought, and slogans such as "United We Stand" were used as blankets to smother whatever critical impulses existed...

As the spell cast by patrioteering has begun to wear off, there is another related dynamic at work to keep as from the truth - what psychistrists describe as denial...Part of the impulse to deny is a desperate wish to avoid coming face-to-face with the gruesome realities that are embedded in the power structure of government that controls our lives...

There is no excuse at this stage of American development for a posture of political innocence, including an unquestioning acceptance of the good faith of our government. After all, there has been a long history of manipulated public beliefs, especially in matters of war and peace...

The breaking of trust between government and citizenry in the United States has deep historical roots. Historians are in increasing agreemtnt that the facts were manipulated (1) in the explosion of the USS Maine to justify the start of the Spanish-American War (1898), (2) with respect to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to justify the previously unpopular entry into World War II, (3) in the Gulf of Tonkin incident of 1964, used by the White House to justify the dramatic extension of the Vietnam War to North Vietnam, and, most recently, (4) to portray Iraq as harboring a menacing arsenal of weaponry of mass destruction, in order to justify recourse to war in defiance of international law and the United Nations...Why should the official account of 9/11 be treated as sacrosanct and accepted at face value?
