“The Anatomy of a Great Deception” made its premiere Friday in Detroit. The film stems from a journey made by Michigan Native, David Hooper, that started in 2011.

“The Anatomy of a Great Deception” is a documentary that looks into 9/11, digging apart the story that the government and media has pushed since the World Trade Center fell in 2001. Hooper has done extensive research of the event that occurred nearly 13 years ago, each bit of research leading him on a twisted journey “down the rabbit hole”.

In the film, the attacks of September 11, 2001 are broken down extensively, with a heavy focus on the physics of, not only the falling of the Twin Towers, but also the often forgotten third building; Building 7.

Hooper tackles the different tales of what caused the buildings to crash like they did. He skillfully studies and tests every claim made by the government, especially the notion that no explosives were involved in the “attacks”. He gathers and presents evidence that strongly suggests that the attacks of that morning play out like a planned demolition, twisting the minds of viewers with visuals and examples.

Hooper challenges every idea that has ever surfaced regarding 9/11, using both his knowledge, as well as the knowledge of professionals, through clips of interviews to open the door to a whole new conspiracy concerning an already sketchy and rough piece of the past. The film brings light to the catastrophe in a way that adds many more layers to a well-known tragedy.

Hooper has crafted a documentary that ultimately will leave viewers scratching their heads and pondering all they know.
Though he makes it very clear that the stories and explanations just don’t add up, Hooper encourages viewers to go out and do their own research like he has so that they may form their own opinion of the topic.

No matter what stand you take regarding 9/11, “The Anatomy of a Great Deception” will distort all that you have heard or have been told about September 11, 2001.
The film is raw, potent, and to the point. Whether you believe what has been told of the day or you believe the government is covering up essential pieces of the puzzle, this film is a must see.

    Dr. Judy Wood earned a Ph.D. Degree from Virginia Tech and is a former professor of mechanical engineering. She has research expertise in experimental stress analysis, structural mechanics, deformation analysis, materials characterization and materials engineering science. Her research has involved testing materials, including complex-material systems, in the area of photomechanics, or the use of optical and image-analysis methods to determine physical properties of materials and measure how materials respond to forces placed on them. Her area of expertise involves interferometry.

    She taught graduate and undergraduate engineering classes and has authored or co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed papers in her areas of expertise.

    In the time since 9/11/01, she has applied her expertise in materials science, image analysis and interferometry, to a forensic study of over 40,000 images, hundreds of video clips and a large volume of witness testimony pertaining to the destruction of the WTC complex. Dr. Wood has conducted a comprehensive forensic investigation of what physically happened to the World Trade Center site on 9/11. And, based on her analysis of the evidence she gathered, in 2007, she filed a federal qui tam case for science fraud against the contractors who contributed to the official NIST report about the destruction of the WTC. This case was filed in the US Supreme Court in Dec 2009. To this day, Dr. Wood’s investigation is the only comprehensive forensic investigation in the public domain.
