9/11 for Dummies

and by dummies

If you couldn't get through the whole 9/11 Commission's 500 pages of uselessness/spin/coverup/excuses for bush's incompetence and want to understand the official explanation about what "really" happened but all that reading is just, well, too complicated...

You can now get the 9/11 Commission's Report in a comic book! yay!

Yowzers! You mean I can get the whole gist of the 9/11 Commission Report in a mere 144 pages complete with pictures, graphics and very little text?

Yes you can, silly American, who cannot grasp concepts unless they are in the form of entertainment media.

This is all brought to you by "Sid Jacobson, who created the Richie Rich comic series, and illustrated by Ernie Colon, who worked on comics including Spider-Man, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman." Wow, it's world class propaganda to boot. Yessirreeebob

"In one graphic depiction of the events on United 93, the flight that crashed in Pennsylvania, passengers are seen bloodied and battling hijackers wielding knives.

""We've got to stop them! Two planes crashed into the World Trade Centre," one passenger says, about to land a punch on a hijacker who has stabbed a passenger in the back with a knife.

"In another panel, a passenger calls his father just before the second plane crashes into the World Trade Centre: "It's getting bad, Dad ... a stewardess was stabbed ... they seem to have knives and Mace. I think we're going down ... my God, my God ..."

"Publisher Thomas LeBien of Hill and Wang, a division of Farrar, Straus, Giroux, said to the New York Post, "I think we have taken a terribly important document, which I wish every American would read, and done it in a way that makes it far easier for people to grasp." "(from the Herald Sun in Australia)

Sadly. He may be right.
