Last week I shared a teaser from Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days," which I'm still reading this week. In fact, I'm 'half way through' quite a number of books, of both fact, fiction, and somewhere in between.

And it is somewhere in between that I'm sharing for Teaser Tuesday today.


The 9/11 Commission Report - The Attack from Planning to Aftermath is proclaimed as the authorized text on the whole dark saga. Here is the teaser:

"The threat of terrorists hijacking commercial airliners within the United States - and using them as guided missiles - was not recognized by NORAD before 9/11 . . . . . On the morning of 9/11, the existing protocol was unsuited in every respect for what was about to happen."

NORAD refers to the North American Aerospace Defence Command.


It's a very interesting read, though I highly doubt the truth behind all the events of that fateful day are contained in the pages of this book. Of that I don't think we will ever know. It remains, however, that hundreds of innocent people lost their lives on that day.


What are your thoughts on 9/11? Did you find the teaser intriguing? Eye-opening? Would you read the book?

I agree, we will never know the truth. I am still curious about what is in the report. Does it raise more questions than it answers?

I'm not sure about this one. I feel like I've read so much and heard so much. This is probably one I SHOULD read....but won't.
Thanks for stopping by.

It's probably too soon for me to be reading this, but I've certainly been enjoying what I've read about the Kennedy assassination. Later for 9/11.

That is an interesting read I'm sure. I tend to agree we probably don't know close to everything... thank for sharing it.

Your Teaser made me curious. I doubt if I'd read this book but my husband would be interested. I'll tell him about it.

Interesting sounding book and I'm sure that there is much we will never know about the day the whole world woke up to a new type of threat. Thanks for visiting my TT http://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/10/21/teaser-tuesday-october-21/

I think you're right. We will probably never know the truth, but this is a different sort of teaser. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for visiting my blog.

Juli Rahel said...

This sounds like a really interesting read! I think you're right in thinking the answers aren't in one single book, but it's always good to keep informed! Thanks for dropping by and sorry for such a late visit back! Have a great week!
