I've read the Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright, Pulitzer-prize-winning Tulane graduate. Although his conclusions unfortunately mirror the 9/11 Commission, Looming Tower itelf contains a wealth of detail on the origins of Al Quaeda and Bin Laden. You might even come to suspect that the author's knowledge of this group is more complete than could be uncovered by an independent writer.

Plus, you should read the Commission' Report. It is normally found in bargain bins in secondhand bookstores.
The Commission report can also be downloaded from the web for free (or at least I did years ago).
There are many other good ones....and more good films and videos than I think I can mention now......will try later.

Good lists here. Worth noting -

VOICES by Rowland Morgan. A lengthy, data-and-analysis heavy examination of the voice recordings and issues related to same from the flights that morning. I think this is the deepest examination of this aspect of the event anywhere. It's free on Scribd below.

9/11 THE NEW EVIDENCE - Thoughtful overview by Morgan's onetime writing partner Ian Henshall. I'd cite this as a lot better than the misleading Amazon reviews attached to it may suggest. Well-written, well-researched. I've read all the major 9/11 books and rank this higher than a number of the higher profile volumes.

Paul Rea's MOUNTING EVIDENCE. Very solid overview (ala Griffin's New Pearl Harbor) by Paul Rea. A deleted chapter on the NeoCons and Leo Strauss is available online.

HIJACKING AMERICA'S MIND ON 9/11: COUNTERFEITING EVIDENCE by Elias Davidsson. A credible volume by a European researcher. Check out the 'look inside the book' for contents and examples for a taste.

All this said I hope we haven't seen the last of groundbreaking, detailed works on the subject, as we can always use more.

Another good recent documentary, by Barbara Honegger.

Puts to sleep the flight path to the Pentagon and that there were two incoming flying machines - one that flew OVER the Pentagon and then on - crashing into nothing. Also puts the poor taxi guy to rest as a pawn used for the Big Lie - sad.

Excellent film - and, in parts, humorous on a subject NOT given to being laughed at.
The Honegger video contained a few new bits of information for me: the not-made-of-aluminum composite bit of wreckage that a civilian witness claimed fell thru her sunroof after the Pentagon explosion, the news that GWB himself was planning on using the helipad near the Pentagon impact site later that day, and that the Pentagon building failure report claimed that the fuselage of whatever hit it was no more than 20 feet high, and in fact a 757 sitting on its jet engines is in fact more than 21 feet tall, and that in addition to the auditor's records of the missing Pentagon 3.2 trillion dollars being destroyed in the crash, the records of the Black Eagle Trust (240 billion) were destroyed in the Naval Command Center (from which there was only 1 survivor). In order to wipe out both of these offices the plane had to be travelling at that particular angle of impact.

The last fact of interest I found in her 3 hour speech was that the nation of Malaysia hosted an international 9/11 Truth Conference in 2012 in which the theory of remote control planes was discussed. It was unknown to her at the time of this speech, but it seems not at all coincidental that the next well-known potential remote control hijack situation was a Malaysian airliner.

I do feel that in talking about her perpetrators of the Pentagon attack she has veered out of the carefully researched work in much of the rest of her report. For one thing, she calls some of the American officials "reputed dual American/Israeli citizens". Who made these "reputes"? Why didn't she bother to verify these particular allegations? It seems to me that she has veered dangerously close to anti-Semitism when discussing the perpetrators. In the least, this will quite unnecessarily tend to discredit her work as a whole. She could have just stuck with the term "neo-con" and been standing on unimpeachable ground.

The last part of her assertion I find strange is that she suggests that the conspirators were inspired by Carl Schmitt, Nazi law professor. Does she seriously think that his Ubermensch view of the world would gain any traction among the Jewish people, Schmitt's intended victims? The alliance of Nazi philosophy and Zionism would indeed be a startling and historical event, which would have been noticed and commented upon by others before 2012.
