The issue of 9/11 is controversial to be sure, but the evidence has steadily mounted pointing to a US (and Israeli?) covert false flag operation to put in the motion the war on terror. The issue in a mystery has eluded the left, in part no doubt because of Chomsky and this junky book, written in haste perhaps and without the insight that often characterizes Chomsky’s critiques. It is one thing to have written this, quite another to have never learned or changed his story, to the great detriment by cancel culture of innumerable figures on the left who has been sidelined completely while actually studying the now considerable literature clearly pointing to the real issues (David Ray Griffin in one place to start). It is highly likely, from the various videos showing him confronted by critics,that Chomsky no longer agrees with himself yet cannot for some reason changed his story. It is a destructive process for many who detest the hypocrisy and shallow left guised in high rhetoric that gives Chomsky the odd reputation of being some kind of radical or socialist. Again it is a strange puzzle, compounded by one and the same kind of confusion over the JFK assassination, and one that fairly well neutralizes his vaunted reputation for looking radical when he is in reality someone else.
