A Discussion With Theologian David Ray Griffin Who Believes That The Bush Adminstration Was Involved In The Attacks On 9-11

Thinking Unthinkable Thoughts

Theologian Charges White House Complicity in 9/11 Attack

There's nothing the least bit wild-eyed or hysterical about David Ray Griffin. In person, he's disarmingly calm, and speaks in the unflappably precise and deliberate style of a lifelong academic. Which is exactly what Griffin is. A respected philosopher of religion at the Claremont School of Theology since the 1970s and longtime Santa Barbara resident, Griffin is now raising questions that even President Bush's harshest critics are afraid to think, let alone ask aloud.

In his latest book, The New Pearl Harbor - released just two weeks ago - Griffin all but accuses the Bush administration of taking a dive on September 11 and giving Al Qaeda terrorists an unobstructed shot at the World Trade Center. According to Griffin, a case can be made that the Bush administration arranged the attack, or allowed it to happen. He is aware that he may be dismissed as a conspiracy nut, but given the "transcendent importance" of the issue, Griffin is willing to assume that risk and has taken to repeating Michael Moore's line on the subject: "Personally, I'm not into conspiracy theories except those that are true." I met with Griffin over coffee to discuss his book and the September 11 investigation. The following is an edited account of their conversation.
