The Assault On Reason is a good book. It's well written and Al Gore comes across as an intelligent guy. In fact the book is a lot more "deep" and "philosophical" than I expected it to be. While much of the book focuses on criticizing the Bush administration, a lot of time is also spent discussing American history and world history, and how it all relates to what's happening in American democracy today. While it is a good book, there is also a deeply ironic and troubling aspect to it. Gore preaches the virtues of science, honesty, logic and reason. And he exposes many of the lies of the Bush administration. But throughout the book, Gore strongly supports the biggest and most tragic lie of all, the official government story of the 9-11 attacks. People who write off 9-11 Truth as a "bizarre conspiracy theory", as Al Gore does, do so precisely to avoid having to use logic and reason. Because when you apply logic and reason to the official story, the official story falls apart. And what's left is the ugly truth, the ugly truth that many people would prefer not to confront. David Ray Griffin is a college professor who has written several books which use logic and reason to destroy the official government story. Read a few of his books, and then see if you can honestly keep telling yourself that it was nineteen Muslim hijackers who attacked us and brought down three skyscrapers. So I ask you Al Gore, with your professed love of science, honesty, logic and reason, why do you not question the official 9-11 story? Why do you blindly accept and support the biggest Bush lie of all? Is it perhaps because 9-11 Truth is too inconvenient for you?
