UPDATED: Amazon UK caught actively blocking purchase of new 9/11 book?

UPDATE Sep 26 2018: We’ve had quite a few responses from readers detailing their own experiences of trying to purchase 911 Unmasked. Thus far we have twenty-two who are still waiting for the book, one who tried to order a used copy and and was told the book had become unavailable (much like Raskolnivov below), and three who are saying it’s “temporarily unavailable.” We also have one successfully delivered purchase reported, which at least confirms Amazon has the book and can dispatch it. Hopefully the problem, whatever it is, will be resolved soon.

Note – you can purchase 9/11 Unmasked direct from the publishers HERE

We’re taking the liberty of publishing a post that first appeared on The Lifeboat News discussion board, posted by a user named Raskolnikov.

Confronted with the ongoing and currently unexplained delays in shipping of the new book 9/11 Unmasked on Amazon worldwide, Raskolnikov allegedly spotted a copy that was available for purchase “used” through Amazon UK. However when he/she attempted to order the book the order was allegedly “cancelled by the seller”, without explanation.

We should emphasise we have been informed by the authors that Amazon has received copies of this book from the publisher and ought therefore to be able to ship them immediately, yet so far as we are aware not a single copy has yet been dispatched to anyone, and every Amazon outlet we checked (US, UK, France, Germany) are still, as of September 25, vacillating between claiming the book is “temporariiy out of stock” or estimating delivery dates 1-3 months away.

In light of this, Raskolnikov’s experience seems very hard to explain without inferring some deep reluctance on the part of Amazon to distribute this book.

We’re interested in hearing from anyone who has tried to order this book. Did you receive a copy? Still waiting? Had your money refunded? Email me at blackcatte@off-guardian.org

9/11 Unmasked – Amazon (et al.) Censorship

posted by Raskolnikov

Having read the post on OffGuardian regarding the censorship of the new David Ray Griffin/Elizabeth Woodworth book on 9/11 I thought I’d post my own experience of this.

I’d had the book bookmarked for a while, watching and waiting for it to become available. Then I saw it had gone to the dead giveaway “Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months.” status which has never changed on any of the books I’ve seen on this status (the Udo Ulfkotte book amongst others). Having said that they do change sometimes but only to “Not Currently Available”.

Anyway, a “Used Like New” copy came up on the Amazon.co.uk page so I ordered it, even though it’s pretty dodgy that someone has a used copy a week after it’s released while new copies are not available. As soon as I ordered it the listing was removed from the page which is what you would expect. I waited a couple of days but it wasn’t dispatched, so I contacted the seller asking why it hadn’t been sent yet. Got a message from Amazon saying the order had been cancelled by the seller with no other explanation.

I posted a review of the seller (negative as you would expect) and then posted a review of the item talking about how the author and publisher had blogged that the books had been delivered to Amazon and so there was no reason they should not be available unless Amazon were attempting to censor it. They refused to publish the review. I then tried to comment on an existing review that covered the same ground as me, but my comment was deleted.

This is an absolutely crystal clear case of people being prevented from reading certain information by Amazon (and their various subsidiaries, Book Depository, etc.) just as happened with the Udo Ulfkotte book (although that was snuffed out earlier in the process with the publisher buying the rights and then not distributing the books).

The cynic in me does suspect there is a small possibility that it is all a marketing stunt to boost sales but I would say that’s only about 5 or 10%. An admin at OffGuardian said in comments that they would be publishing an updated article on this issue so I hope people can bring some attention to the increasingly relevant issue; the corporations and the PTB are really ramping up their control of online information.

    The book is currently available from the publishers IF (and that’s a BIG if) you’re prepared to shell out $45 for the postage. FORTY FIVE DOLLARS?! – really? Is there no enterprising bookseller in the UK prepared to take a punt and ship 20 copies (or whatever) to see whether there’s a market for it? Yes, of course this could all be just an extraordinary coincidence, and us conspiracy theorists are on the way to an early grave with our paranoia…or someone has carried out an exhaustive analysis of the evidence and reached conclusions that might just rock our world. Hmmm

    • I saw that but I called the toll free number 1-800-238-LINK and while some shipping costs $45 that particular title costs $34, still a lot I know.

      Maybe the book should also be available as an EPUB file? Hello, David Ray Griffin and Interlink? Reach a younger market?

    • Raskolnikov says

      I ordered a copy through the US arm of Amazon and received it today, so that route seems to be open now. I am in the UK and paid $30 for the book and expedited shipping which came to about £21 or something. At least you know you can now get a copy.

    Hi. I’m Raskolnikov from the post on Lifeboat News. I thought I’d post to mention a further development with this book.

    Shortly after the first debacle I saw two more “Used Like New” copies appear on Amazon.co.uk but they were from the same seller as my previous order was with. In a fit of optimism I ordered one even though the price had gone up to £19.52. This time I received a couple of emails showing the order had been processed but not yet dispatched and then nothing….until this morning when I got an email from the seller asking ME to cancel the order:

    Unfortunately due to recent high demand this item is just out of stock before we could update listings, and our suppliers are also out of stock. Therefore so you are able to order from elsewhere, please can you request cancellation through Amazon website. This can be actioned by locating the order in your order history and selecting reason “cancel order”, when writing please ensure message contact subject/reason is “cancel order”.

    So I’m in the middle of trying to do that now, although the Amazon bod I just spoke to insisted on trying to get the seller to deliver the book even though it’s clear they have no intention of doing so. Anyway, this might just be one rogue seller trying to make a fast buck somewhow (not quite sure how they plan to do that without delivering the items!) but the handling of this book by Amazon definitely falls into a pattern:

    Recently published book is marked as “Usually Dispatched within 1 -2 months”.

    Usually one used copy appears for a ridiculous price (the Udo Ulfkotte book had one copy for something like $2000!)

    Eventually the status is changed to “Temporarily Unavailable” and they never ship a single copy.

    As someone on the thread at Lifeboat News commented, it’s strange that they would surpress this one book by David Ray Griffin (if they are surpressing it of course) while they sell most of his other 9/11 books. The only reason I can think of is that this is the product of a panel investigation and might carry more weight with people; they can’t pass it off as the work of “one lone conspiracy theorist”.

    Anway, that’s my update.

    Hopefully copies become available soon without having to pay $45 for shipping from the US.

    Also, keep up the good work OffGuardian!!! You are doing a great job.

    The book 9/11 Unmasked was not found today, September 27, in Amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.
    Searched from Greece.

  4. Thomas Prentice says

    Just vtried to order it from Amazon USA /” Temporaily out of stock”

  5. Frankly Speaking says

    For those of you looking for alternatives to Amazon, forget Tge Book Depository. I used to use them , they were great, i stopped because….Amazon took them over :o(

  6. I have not been ably to purchase this book through the HERE link provided. It will not let me enter a shipping address.
    Also, they want $45 for shipping even if I could order it .

    • I called the toll free number 1-800-238-LINK and advised problems entering the shipping address. The shipping cost for that title BTW is $34 so hopefully they’ll update that too.

      EPUB files would be handy.

      • I was able the next day to place my order and got 2 copies a few days ago. Shipping was something like 5 dollars. Not bad.

    • ZigZag Wanderer,

      Thank you for providing the link for obtaining Alex Krainer’s extremely important book. The level of suppression with regard to the Browder-Magnitsky scandal is unprecedented and mind-blowing – reaching 9/11 blacklist territory.

  7. This was my experience.

    Yesterday I went on Interlink to buy 911 Unmasked, it is priced at $20. By the time I had geven them the delivery addres they wanted $40 and just before checkout it had risen to $65, so I pulled out.

  8. Besides Amazon’s obvious genetically-modified censorship of Griffin and Woodworth’s “9/11 Unmasked”, Andrei Nekrasov’s film exposing the massive Browder-Magnitsky scandal was taken down from Vimeo. People can view director Nekrasov’s extremely important, timely film at the following website:

    http://www.magnitskyact.com

  9. It’s all very strange. If it’s all about the content you’d expect Amazon to also avoid shipping “Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World ” by Christopher Bollyn, which must be equally incendiary, but Amazon.co.uk are saying it has 15 left in stock of that book and it can be delivered by Thursday 27/9.

    It appears it may not be Amazon that’s preventing distribution. U.S. wholesalers also don’t have stockwhich suggests that the publishers are holding it up for some reason – possibly legal?

    During the past year since Trump has been joined by the madman Bolton and the “mafia boss” Pompeo, the Project for a New American Century has gone into warp drive and Full Spectrum Dominance is being rolled everywhere, even Amazon book stores.
    The sooner the rest of the world disconnects from all US internet services from Amazon through Google, Facebook and Twitter, etc, the better for us.
    Same goes for disconnecting from the US financial system too, which the EU, Iran, China and Russia have already started.

      …if the rest of the world takes such a boycott of the US seriously and if it became widespared, then perhaps in 10 years we’d see the US being blessed with Full Spectrum Irrelevance, if a saner government doesn’t take over in the meantime.

      • The people required to staff a ‘saner’ government no longer have access to the application forms.
        Only certifiable psychotics need apply. Pre-screening will be waived in such cases, since their suitability is obvious to all.
