False Flag by Dick Croy
Can serious fact-based fiction play a role in creating a better understanding of critical contemporary social and political issues like 9/11? I believe it can.
Thanks to the Internet and an increasing number of enterprising and courageous individuals, the information now available on a 9/11 cover-up is voluminous and convincing. But my perception is that the world’s understanding of this wealth of evidence, or willingness even to consider it, is a small fraction of what it could and needs to be for the good of the planet and the people who inhabit it. The choir is being preached to with brilliance and passion, but it’s time to enlarge the congregation. Exponentially.
All this evidential intelligence needs to be presented so that it permeates the cultural equivalent of the blood-brain barrier. How can we bypass that impregnable human defense system known as denial? Story-telling is certainly one way. As I state in my 110-page novella False Flag, “Although its central characters are fictional, the story you have just read is based on the tragedy we all know so well – or, for many of us, not so well.”
False Flag is an investigative narrative with mostly fictional characters which draws heavily on numerous sources to tell the story of a 9/11 cover-up. One is the brilliant “Miracles” essay by David Ray Griffin, who read an initial draft and provided invaluable feedback. Another is the heavily researched and footnoted 2-part essay by E.P. Heidner which “ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery that are most compelling,” in the words of Fred Burks, on whose website wanttoknow.info the essay appeared. Having received much positive feedback as well as suggestions for further research, I have also added fact-based scenes exploring the possibility that 9/11 was a nuclear attack, or was caused by some type of directed-energy weapon (DEW).
A brief synopsis: FRANK lost his 26-year-old daughter Lisa. ANNA lost her husband Arturo, a cook anticipating promotion to sous-chef at Windows on the World. ANITA’s husband Alex was one of 658 employees of Cantor Fitzgerald who lost their lives in the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers. Through the eyes and the stories of these and other fictional characters, we gain new compassion for the victims, and new perspective on the events, of 9/11.
