Amazon Censorship of 9/11 Unmasked?

Edward Curtin

On September 10, 2018, I published a laudatory review of the new book, 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth.  It is the definitive book on the defining event of the 21st century.  The book concludes that the official version(s) of the attacks of 11 September 2001 are false.  The review was subsequently reposted at many publications. There was great reader response and interest in the book, which was due for official release the next day, 11 September.  My review provided a link to the book’s Amazon page that noted the 11 September availability date.

By the next day readers were responding in great number that the Amazon site was reporting the book was “out of print,” when in fact it had just been published.  This “out of print” notification lasted until the evening of 13 September when it was changed to “in stock on September 30, 2018.”

By the following morning it was changed to “in stock on September 21, 2018,” only to be changed again between 11-12 PM on September 14 to “in stock on September 24, 2018,” where it remains as of noon on Saturday the 15th.  It is unheard of for a book that has an official release date and that is available straight from the publisher to be listed as “out of print.” Amazon Canada continues to report that the book “has not yet been released.”  And obviously, all the date changes that push the book’s availability back by weeks suggest a clear-cut effort by Amazon to make sure readers cannot obtain the book quickly and in a timely manner from the most popular source, if ever.

Will they soon announce that the book will never be available for national security considerations or because it violates Amazon’s “content guidelines”? The book’s publisher, Interlink Publishing, is selling the book now and says Amazon has the books.  So why is Jeff Bezos’s company playing this game? His other major business, The Washington Post, (known as the CIA’s newspaper) is surely not going to review the book, nor would their editorial staff post encomiums to David Ray Griffin, Elizabeth Woodworth, their colleagues in this important research.

Readers should demand that Amazon immediately change their website and accept orders to be shipped today.  Whether they are responsible for this game of chaotic discouragement or the intelligence services, who are fully capable of hacking into Amazon, as Edward Snowden has pointed out, I do not know.  But something very odd is happening and Amazon should correct it.

I ordered this in late September from Amazon and was told it would be end of October/1st November delivery. Checked status on 31st October to see it would be arriving 1st Nov. It didn’t. Just a “sorry it’s been delayed and we’ll notify you of the new arrival date later”. I get deliveries from China quicker than this. I have never had anything like this happen before with an Amazon order.

I also tried to find it at Waterstones but neither the title nor either ISBN number was recognised in the store search.

Tried to buy it at amazon germany: same game. Then I ordered it at a big german online book seller, thalia.de, just to get an email some days later telling me “Der Artikel ist zur Zeit leider aufgrund einer Lieferverzögerung seitens des Verlags nicht lieferbar” which translates into “item currently not availabel due to delay in delivery by the publisher” …… So it seems the wholesale chain is somewahat interrupted as well. Any other news ?

The publisher of the book has it for sale for 20$ plus shipping, about 7$ https://www.interlinkbooks.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=9%2F11+unmasked

Guess again. Just tried to order from Interlink and got this notice:

We apologize for the inconvenience. Our e-commerce is temporarily out-of-order.

I haven’t kept up with this – but is it not possible to distribute electronically if significant information is being denied a voice or a hearing?

I also recently attempted twice to buy The Palestine Reality from Amazon successfully from two different vendors. In both cases the book said it was delivered and did not show up. I filed for refunds.

Fortunately was able to find an online version of same as well as a physicall copy fronm another far more reputablke vendor.

Amazon just cancelled my order where it was previously published to be in stock. Now I am also noticing the price of the same book I paid 23$ for is now selling for $42-75$ unless of course you join Amazon Prime which it is selling 16$ for.

I am done with Amazon and will no longer order through Amazon as long as there are alternatives.

I received 2 copies using the link to the publisher provided by admin. Very quickly. My Amazon order stalled 15 days ago,at acknowledging the order was made. I canceled both Amazon UK and US orders.
Reading the book now.

This is the same blatant censorship that has made the German bestseller “Journalists for Hire: How the CIA buys the News” unavailable in English for any price in the U.S.

https://www.amazon.com/Journalists-Hire-How-Buys-News/dp/1944505458

The book was first projected to be available in English on Amazon in a year, then two, then finally it would be published soon, but the dates kept getting pushed back to the point that finally, a brand new release of what was a best seller in Germany, is simply not available in English in the U.S. My attempts to get any response from the publisher have been futile.

This is the modern equivalent of book burning. That Amazon would so cavalierly do this now with an American author is rather telling regarding the state of our police State.

I love Dr Peter Gøtzsche for his willingness to stand in witness against corruption – though I sighed when reading the ‘look inside’ his book at his blanket dismissal and invalidation of vitamins and by extension nutrition and the ability of the body to detoxify and regenerate itself under stress.

His coming out in ‘anger’ is understandable, but at the same time triggers the ‘scientist’ to distantiate – because our science is largely predicated upon the removal of direct emotional expression in subservience to ‘rational’ communication and behaviour – which of course becomes ‘groupthink’ of an institutionalised identity.

Anger can be used to clear out what does not belong in our own ‘Temple’ – or does not truly serve us in ‘Template’ definitions and beliefs that represent conflicted or divided devotions and which we both collectively and personally live from or act out from.

The projection of moral outrage – which also operates as attack or denial of validity in another – is an expression of our own self hate is it not?

I hate the liar who would deceive and destroy all that is true to ‘save his self-illusion – but will I look within more deeply and honestly than before to see where I have vibrational correspondence with what I hate to see in the world? In other words is my own ‘self-illusion’ completely hidden from me?

Be aware I am not talking about assigning blame – at all – but of waking a deeper response-ability than I knew was within me.

Like attracts like, and by my reactions can I become aware of things in myself that I was blind to or disregarding of before.

Many who take on the ‘establishment’ risk madness, partly because they become defined by what they fight or identify AGAINST.

I believe that extending true witness is a positive act in love and not a hate-drive reaction – but as with any learning, it is by taking action that we gain feedback, new information and insight by which to accept a greater alignment with our true desire, rather than reacting to what does not fit our image of what our self or world ‘should’ be.

Frances – Thank you for that. Amazon purchased Book Depository in 2011. So adios, Book Depository.

Those who are part of a cover up of the worst, treacherous crime to take place in the US are complicit in it. When the truth is finally acknowledged and the wheels of justice start to turn, Bezos should join Bush, Cheney, the 9/11 Commission members, the NIST investigators and many others in court and later in prison.

Perhaps, like its namesake, Amazon will soon be gone.

No, what they should do is buy their books elsewhere.

Amazon made its bed.

Readers should make it lie in it.

Buy from Barnes and Nobles, Waterstones or whoever.

Agreed. Abebooks also good for books and Discogs for music.

A monopoly is as a monopoly does.

The elephant in the room is the issue WHY we allow ourselves to keep feeding the deep state-beholden behemoths through our dependence. The answer is banal in its simplicity: lazy convenience. Whether its Amazon, Facebook or Google, the yoke of bondage is our own force of habit. Customers buy at Amazon because that where all the books are. And why are all the books on Amazon? Because writers and publishers reason that “that’s where all the customers are”. There is nothing that stops both consumers and content providers from breaking this vicious circle, other than our own will power.

Next time you order a book online, take some time to contemplate on how Jeff Bozo serves the CIA, and how badly he treats his wage slaves. Make a little effort to seek out alternative sellers. Writers and publishers have websites where they can be contacted. If their books are only available on Amazon, urge them to provide alternatives.

iafantomo

Exactly. That’s the point of my question below. But if we have to devote a lot of time to searching for alternatives — and possibly only to find that the alternatives are owned by Amazon anyway — then we stop ourselves doing other things that might be more important. A set of guidelines to alternative sources would be extremely useful. If people generally could find alternative sources for just 10% of their purchases, then that in itself would have some impact, without too much inconvenience. If you’re writing an article, you don’t want to get too bogged down in sourcing the material, so that you never ever finish the article!

Not this book you don’t. A search on ‘abebooks’ reveals ‘no results’. Since I’m getting no UK results on a Google search I’m guessing that Waterstones, Foyles et al don’t have it either.

You are so right. I don’t buy from Amazon any more unless it’s the only source of something but I still use Google, Facebook and YouTube. Lazy convenience. We’re just as guilty as the culprits, aren’t we?

Sorry Mr. Curtin. It seems as though we’re hearing much evidence that suggests intent relating to domestic terrorism. Such thoughts we’re acceptable before the Patriot Act, but now we need to see your liscence & registration. Step out of the car sir. Hands over the hood…
