October 6, 2008
To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to thank Richard Gage, AIA and Architects and Engineers for 9/11
Truth for presenting the scientific facts behind the unprecedented destruction
of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7. AE911Truth presents solid
research that contradicts the official story of the building’s destruction with
the overwhelming evidence of explosive controlled demolition.
An accurate understanding of history is required to make good decisions in
the future. Over and over again, history has shown that the first public perceptions
of historical events are not always correct. I, along with millions of others,
have serious questions about our country’s recent history about 9/11.
I have signed the AE911Truth.org petition calling for an unbiased investigation
of the “collapses” of these three high-rise buildings. I encourage
everyone to do the same, and also become a Sustaining Member of Architects and
Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

In its draft report, released in August 2008, NIST attempted to cover up evidence that WTC7 fell at freefall, but the coverup was transparent. In its final report, released in November 2008, NIST finally acknowledged freefall, but couched it in a bizarre framework that continues to deny its clear significance. Part I [of this video] chronicles NIST’s attempted obfuscation and eventual admission of freefall. Part II demonstrates that their replacement theory is based on fabricated evidence and is a continuation of the coverup. Part III will spell out the significance of NIST’s admission of freefall.
Go to www.AE911truth.org and sign the petition for a REAL investigation.
WTC7: NIST Finally Admits Freefall (Part I)
NIST has now officially accepted that WTC7 came down with the acceleration of gravity, but they still couch it as a phase in a 5.4 second interval they claim matches the 5.4 seconds required for their model to collapse 18 floors. The starting point of their 5.4 second interval is totally arbitrary. This new video highlights the August 26 technical briefing and allows Sunder and Gross to shoot holes in their own feet.

Machiavelli wrote, “There are many who think a wise prince ought, when
he has the chance, to foment astutely some enmity, so that by suppressing it
he will augment his greatness.”
This tactic has often been used or considered. Germany was blamed during World
War I for an unprovoked attack on the “Lusitania,” which was carrying
arms to the British, and the Vietnam War was expanded based on a false report
on Aug. 4, 1964, of an attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Operation Northwoods, a 1962 military plan to fake a Cuban attack on the U.S.,
proposed shooting down a civilian plane with Americans onboard.
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, representing more than 560 professionals,
has released a report stating that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers
and World Trade Center Building 7 showed the signs of controlled demolition,
including a rapid and symmetrical fall, clouds of pyroclastic (heated) smoke
and debris, and residue of the incendiary agent thermate in dust samples taken
from the site. Building 7 had no collisions or fuel fires, yet fell in free-fall
speed into its own footprint. In similar buildings, fire has produced only softening
in the steel, never total collapse.
In a Dec. 28 letter, FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Michael Heimbach
wrote that the group “presents an interesting theory, backed by thorough
research and analysis.” Would a full investigation prove that Machiavelli’s
statement also describes the events of 9/11?
This video is dedicated to my neighbor, Greg, who woke me up to the Truth About 9/11 and to all of the givers around the world who wake up others.
You don’t have to be a William Rodriguez, Steven Jones or even a Richard Gage to be a Hero in the Truth Movement. All you have to do is be willing to wake up others, including perfect strangers. It only takes a little bit of Truth to get people to question the reality that they have been fed. Give a DVD, Flyer, Info Card or a Conversation about Building 7 to a stranger and watch them come out of the matrix.
Even if they don’t wake up right away, you are planting a seed for the next person.

Richard Gage, AIA Founder, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
Come and hear Richard Gage, AIA, give his outstanding multimedia presentation on the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. You’ll see an abundance of
photographs and video evidence showing that the way in which the towers collapsed is inconsistent with a plane-impact-and-fire scenario and that the collapses in fact exhibited all the characteristics of destruction by explosives. You’ll learn about molten metal in the rubble pile, molten metal flowing from the windows before collapse, the unmistakable chemical signature of a demolition incendiary “thermite” left behind in the debris, and more. Bring your skeptical friends who want solid, documented evidence and disciplined thinking. We need our best critical thinkers to examine this evidence. Richard has put his professional reputation on the line, and over 560 architecture and engineering professionals stand in solidarity with him at AE911truth.org. His credentials are impeccable… Continue reading

NIST’s Half-Admission of Yet Another 9/11 Smoking Gun
The U.S. Senate will hold a confirmation hearing this week on the nominee for Secretary of Commerce, Gov. Gary Locke. This cabinet position oversees the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), the government agency responsible for investigating and reporting on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7. NIST tried to avoid admitting that there was any freefall acceleration when the building came down on September 11, 2001. All the way to their draft final report on August 26, 2008, nearly seven years after the event, the NIST report’s lead authors held firmly to their position that freefall did not occur.
Once NIST invited comments on its draft report, it was more or less forced to accept the indisputable explanations based on the publicly available videos proving that freefall had occurred. David Chandler, a high school physics teacher and AE911Truth researcher, provided the most compelling argument in video seen widely on YouTube.
In their final report issued November 20, 2008, the NIST report’s authors stated they had made a more detailed examination, and found a 2.25-second period in which the center roofline exhibited a “freefall drop for approximately 8 stories.” Chandler had measured a 2.5-second period. For all practical purposes, the time period can be thought of as two seconds.
The NIST report did not state the significance of a freefall drop. The significance is that during that… Continue reading
Explosives Found in World Trade Center Dust: Scientists Discover Both Residues And Unignited Fragments Of High-Tech Metal Incendiaries In Debris From the Twin Towers – A non-technical guide to the newly published paper explaining the identification of nano-engineered explosive materials in dust from the Twin Towers
Introduction – The scientific paper Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe conclusively shows the presence of unignited aluminothermic explosives in dust samples from the Twin Towers, whose chemical signature matches previously documented aluminothermic residues found in the same dust samples. The present review of the paper and related research is intended to summarize those findings for the non-technical reader. To that end, I first provide a short introduction to the subject of aluminothermic explosives, then outline the methods and results of analysis of the dust samples, and finally explore the significance of these findings.

Introduction – The obliteration of the Twin Towers was the centerpiece of the event that launched the ‘War on Terror’. Shocking on multiple levels, the events were especially traumatic for Americans, being the first bombing on the US mainland in modern history that killed thousands of people — civilians — in one day. Given the collective psychological trauma of the attack, it is not surprising that public discourse would remain free of observations that the destruction of the Twin Towers bore obvious features of controlled demolitions.…Continue reading

In the new season of the FX drama Rescue Me, firefighter Franco Rivera espouses the belief that 9/11 was “an inside job.” According to a Sunday New York Times article, the show’s writers added this assertion because actor Daniel Sunjata is a “truther”; but the real firefighters on set–who work as script advisers–were offended by his allegations. This got the Explainer wondering: Do any firefighters believe in 9/11 conspiracy theories?
Yes. There’s no evidence that firefighters buy into 9/11 conspiracy theories at higher rates than the rest of the population. (A 2007 Zogby poll found that 26 percent of Americans believe the government “let it happen.” A 2006 Scripps-Howard poll found it was more than a third.) But some firemen do believe the government was behind 9/11 and use their status as first responders to draw attention to their statements.
The most common conspiracy theory held by firefighters is that the Twin Towers–as well as a third building, 7 World Trade Center–collapsed not because planes crashed into them but due to a “controlled demolition.” On Sept. 11, an NBC reporter quoted New York Fire Department Chief of Safety Albert Turi as saying he believed there were explosives planted in one of the towers. After the attacks, the New York Fire Department interviewed firefighters to create an oral history of 9/11. These tapes–which were not released until 2005–contain numerous references to… Continue reading

George Galloway MP had a New Yorker called Tom Feeley? on his Talksport radio show last night talking about 9/11 and with particular focus on the destruction of the Twin Towers and World Trade Centre Building 7. George opens the show explaining that he still holds Islamic extremists responsible but a chance meeting with this Tom guy in New York has planted seeds of doubt in his mind.

PETER’S NEW YORK, Saturday, April 18, 2009–U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer
(D-NY) said yesterday that while he was positively disposed toward a new investigation
into the events of 9-11, his support for such a probe would depend on the form
it would take.
Schumer, who was attending the launch of the Tour of the Battenkill annual
bicycle races in Cambridge, New York, responded to a question regarding efforts
in New York City to establish a new 9-11 investigation.
"I think it’s not a bad idea," Schumer said. "You know, you’ve
got to do it in a good way, but yes, I’d be for it."
Schumer qualified his remarks by noting that his support would depend upon
the manner in which the investigation was structured. "I’d have to see
the parameters of the investigation and all that," he said. He briefly
mentioned "finding body parts," which may have referred to the discovery
in 2006 that the roof of the Deutsche Bank building near the former site of
the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center was strewn with human remains from
A report sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology maintains
that the Twin Towers were brought down entirely due to fire and mechanical damage
from the two airliners that collided with them on 9-11. A similar report by
the same government agency asserts that the sudden and rapid collapse that same
afternoon of a third office tower, the 47-story Building 7, was caused… Continue reading
AE911Truth.org Press Conference/Speaking Engagement Saturday 5/2 at
4pm, Westin Market Street Hotel
Live coverage available via a link at www.ae911truth.org
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact Phone: 510-292-4710
Berkeley, CA, April 25, 2009 — More than 640 Architects &
Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) are calling for a new, independent investigation
into the destruction of the World Trade Center high-rises. These building professionals
cite evidence of explosive demolition at all three WTC high-rises on 9/11 and
document the evidence at their website. Michael Heimbach, assistant director
of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, wrote
that their claims and conclusion were “backed by thorough research and analysis.”
AE911Truth will host exhibitor’s information booth #2609 at this year’s
annual convention of the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA).
The convention, with more than 800 exhibitors and more than 20,000 participating
architects, will take place in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, April 30-May
This exhibition will be followed up on Saturday May 2nd with a dynamic multi-media
presentation by AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA. Mr Gage will cover the
forensic evidence found at the crime scene as well as a review of the omissions
in the official FEMA and NIST reports. Join AE911Truth at the Westin Market
Street Hotel at 50 Third St. in San Francisco at 4:00 pm on Saturday for this
thorough review of the myth-shattering information.
My lecture is entitled “9/11: Time for a Second Look.” In suggesting that it is time for people to take a second look at 9/11, I have in mind primarily people who decided long ago that the attacks of 9/11 happened essentially the way the Bush-Cheney administration and the official reports about 9/11 said they happened, and who therefore decided that the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, which disputes that account, is comprised of crazy conspiracy theorists with no capacity to evaluate evidence objectively. Having formed these views long ago, such people, including most journalists, have been impervious to any arguments presented by the Truth Movement. They simply roll their eyes and move on.
However, both the Truth Movement and the available evidence have changed dramatically in the past three years. Because of these changes, it is not rational to reject the claims of this movement out of hand, without taking a second look. If you are a person who has had such an attitude, you cannot, in the face of these changes, simply roll your eyes without exhibiting the very irrationality of which you accuse the people you dismiss as “conspiracy theorists.”
My lecture is also addressed, albeit indirectly, to fellow members of the Truth Movement. Some members have decided that, now that Bush and Cheney are out of office and the Obama administration has reversed some of their 9/11-based policies, getting the truth about 9/11 revealed is no longer so important. Other members of the… Continue reading

PLEASE NOTE: Although supportive notes to the station are a kind thought, and many of us have now sent them, we have been asked by the KMPH Executive Producer to not send anymore. Apparently, they’ve been so overwhelmed with ‘thank you notes’ they’re missing other important emails like press releases and news tips, necessary to the continuing excellent production of Great Day. We encourage you to mail a thank you, if you feel compelled to do so, to their street address: KMPH FOX 26, 5111 E. McKinley Ave.,
Fresno, CA 93727. (Once again I find myself feeling proud, as usual, of the 9/11 truth community for giving credit where due. Great job, everyone!–Janice)
Richard Gage’s 9/11 presentation in Clovis, CA covered by KMPH Fox 26
Fresno/Clovis gets a load of AE911Truth
Our first stop on the Southern California Truth Tour at the beautiful Clovis Veterans Memorial Building was quite successful. Before our multimedia presentation on the destruction of the three WTC high-rises on 9/11 we asked for a show of hands of the 101 people in attendance. Eighteen believed in the official story of fire induced collapses at the Twin Towers before the presentation and twenty-seven were unsure. The remainder believed in Explosive Controlled Demolition. After the presentation zero believed the official story and only two were unsure!
This is one of the ways we measure success at AE911Truth. We also encourage our attendees to do follow up research and local activism. We tripled the size of the local hardworking dedicated 9/11 Fresno Truth group led by Dennis, Trevor, Jordan, Steve, Manuel, and others here in Fresno!…Continue reading
