Controlled Demolition

Upcoming Sydney Conference to Demonstrate the Three Building Collapses on 9/11 Were a Controlled Demolition

MEDIA RELEASE

Upcoming Sydney Conference to Demonstrate the Three Building Collapses
on 9/11 Were a Controlled Demolition

Sydney, Australia, September 14, 2009 — Truth Action
Australia and 911oz.com will host an International Conference called “The
Hard Evidence” to critically examine the three building Collapses in New
York on September 11, 2001. The official explanation of these building collapse
1, 2 and 7 of the World Trade Center Complex have been attributed primarily
to fire damage causing a “global collapse”, which independent scientific
research has found an entirely insufficient explanation. A group of Architects
and Engineers, approaching one thousand members, is demanding a new investigation
of these building collapses based on hard physical evidence, witness testimony,
video evidence and strict structural analysis using the original blueprints.

The one day event will be comprised of two presentations and an expert panel
discussion, inviting members of the press and public to ask hard technical questions
of the relevant experts. The morning lecture will be from experienced Architect
Richard Gage AIA, representing “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth”,
presenting “9/11: Blueprint for Truth — The Architecture of Destruction”.
The afternoon presentation will be from Professor Steven Jones Ph.D presenting
research based on his scientific team’s recent published findings asking
“What is Nanothermite a High-tech Explosive Material Doing in the Dust
from WTC Building Collapses on 9/11?” A late afternoon Panel discussion
will follow comprised of highly qualified experts including Paul Mason Structural
Engineer, Chemist Dr Frank Legge and Dr David Leifer a Senior Lecturer… Continue reading

National Geographic Does 9/11: Another Icon Debased in Service of the Big Lie

by Jim Hoffman
Version 0.9; August 27, 2009
(Please refer to original article at this link for updated versions)
911research.wtc7.net

By now it’s quite predictable:
every year as the anniversary of the attack approaches,
some of the most established mainstream media brands
are pressed into service to sell the official story of 9/11.

The 2009 iteration of this spectacle
is notable for the contrast between
the designated brand
and the obligatory message.
That brand, best known for its high-brow photojournalistic
National Geographic Magazine,
has existed since 1889, complete with a non-profit Society dedicated to
education in geography, archaeology, history, world cultures,
and natural science.
One can’t help but wonder how National Geographic’s many benefactors
would feel if they understood how the brand was being
used to prop up the “War on Terror”
with its


Popular-Mechanics-style

attack piece to be aired on August 31, 2009.

A web feature on the website of the
National Geographic Channel
provides a preview of the show
and a window into the methods and goals of the show’s producers.
Those methods are so heavy-handed that the critical reader
can’t help but see
that those goals are something very different from educating.
As an exercise, the reader might want to
read the one-page feature first,
and then compare notes with
my analysis of it below.

National Geographic Then and Now

The 2009 documentary isn’t the first time the
National Geographic brand has been used to rubber-stamp
the official account of the attack.

Over Two Dozen Locations to Honor Barry Jennings through Bannering

August 13, 2009

Nearly one year ago, on August 19, 2008, 53 year old Barry Jennings died, two days before the release of the NIST Final Report on the collapse of WTC7. Jennings had bee serving as Deputy Director of Emergency Services Department for New York City, including on September 11th, 2001, when he saw and heard explosions BEFORE the Twin Towers fell, while attempting to evacuate the WTC7 Command Center with NY Corporation Counsel Michael Hess. Jennings publicly shared his experiences with reporters on the day of 9/11/01, as well as in a lengthy 2007 video interview with Dylan Avery, a small clip of which was the released; subsequently his job was repeatedly threatened and he asked that the taped interview not be released. However, after an interview with Jennings was broadcast by the BBC in their program The Third Tower ostensibly refuting what he had previously stated to Avery, Avery felt compelled to release the full original video interview to show the distortions made by the BBC. The cause of Jennings’ death has not been made public, and a private investigator hired by Avery to discover the cause and circumstances surrounding his death abruptly ended his investigation. (More detail on all of this is available at jenningsmystery.com.) In spite of the significance of Jennings’ position with NYC on 9/11 and his controversial eyewitness testimony regarding the collapse of WTC7, the media has not investigated or reported on his death, nor reported on his statements.

Demolition Access To The WTC Towers: Part Two – Security

Kevin R. Ryan: Demolition access to the WTC Towers

Who could have placed explosives in the World Trade Center (WTC) towers? This is the second essay in a series that attempts to answer that question. The first installment began by considering the tenants that occupied the impact zones and the other floors that might have played a useful role in the demolition of the WTC towers. [1] The result was a picture of connections to organizations that had access to explosive materials and to the expertise required to use explosives. Additionally it was seen that, in the years preceding 9/11, the impact zone tenants had all made structural modifications to the areas where the airliners struck the buildings.

The management representatives of these tenant companies were seen to be secretive and powerful. Through these powerful people, the tenants were connected to organizations that benefited greatly from the 9/11 attacks, including the defense contractors Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Halliburton, and Science Applications International Corp (SAIC). The tenants also had strong connections to the Bush family and their corporate network, including Dresser Industries (now Halliburton) and UBS, and to Deutsche Bank and its subsidiaries, reported to have brokered the insider trading deals. There were also links between these tenant companies and the terrorist-financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

Throughout this review we should keep in mind that, according to 2009 estimates, the membership of Al Qaeda’s conspiracy network is… Continue reading

9/11 survivors call for renewed probe as 8th anniversary approaches

9/11 survivors call for renewed probe as 8th anniversary approaches
Posted by Bob Braun/Star-Ledger Columnist August 09, 2009
NJ.com: Blog.nj.com

The eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is a month away and some survivors
of those lost believe it’s a good time to renew an investigation into the events
of that disastrous day. New York City disagrees.

"We know we never have learned the truth, it’s as simple as that,” says
Lorie Van Auken of East Brunswick, one of the most ardent supporters of the
creation of the 9/11 commission in 2002. It was headed by former New Jersey
governor Thomas H. Kean.

"Members and staff of the 9/11 commission have said many of the questions
raised by the attacks have never been answered.”

Van Auken was a founding member of Sept. 11 Advocates, originally a group of
four New Jersey widows whose husbands were killed that day. The group, informally
called "the Jersey girls,” successfully lobbied for the creation of the
commission.

The four women formed the core of a "steering committee" that was
loosely attached to the panel, and then became lobbyists for enactment of the
commission’s recommendations and critics of many of its findings after the panel’s
report was published almost exactly five years ago.

Van Auken is now affiliated with an organization called NYC-CAN — New York
City Coalition for Accountability Now — that has spent the last few months
collecting signatures on a petition designed to require New York’s city council
to place the creation… Continue reading

New paper at The Journal of 9/11 Studies by Prof. Graeme MacQueen

from Kevin Ryan
July 21, 2009

A new paper is available at The
Journal of 9/11 Studies
. This is from Professor Graeme MacQueen, and is
called “Did the Earth Shake Before The South Tower Hit the Ground?”
Here is the abstract:

“In the debate over the collapses of the Twin Towers on 9/11, the shaking
of the earth that accompanied these collapses has played an important role.
This shaking registered clearly on seismographs. Less clear, however, are
its causes and the times it began. The National Institute of Standards and
Technology emphasizes the role of the debris from the collapsing buildings
in producing the seismic signals. In assessing NIST’s hypothesis I focus
on the collapse of the South Tower and attempt to determine the time the collapse
began, the time the debris from the Tower struck the ground, and the temporal
relation of these events to the shaking of the earth that accompanied the
collapse. I consider both the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory’s seismic
evidence and the evidence provided by a less studied form of seismic instrument,
the video camera. I also draw on witness testimony. I conclude that key statements
by NIST are false. Major shaking of the earth, and corresponding seismic signals,
started well before the debris hit the ground. In fact, it seems certain that
the shaking of the earth started before visible signs of building collapse.
This evidence is incompatible with the official NIST hypothesis of the cause
of the collapse of the Towers.”

What in the World is High-Tech Explosive Material Doing in the Dust from 9/11?

by John-Michael P. Talboo
911debunkers.blogspot.com/

Big thanks to YouTube user SmallButLethal for this compilation. SmallButLethal YouTube.com July 02, 2009

A lecture given by Dr. Steven E. Jones in Sacramento, California on April 30, 2009. This talk reveals the discovery of Nano-thermite in the dust from the 9/11 catastrophe. Standard thermite is an incendiary compound invented in 1893 and is made by mixing powders of iron oxide (rust) and aluminum. Once ignited, the aluminum grabs and bonds to the oxygen from the iron oxide. This reaction releases clouds of aluminum oxide and generates very high temperatures in the elemental iron. This high temperature iron easily melts steel. Tiny spheres of iron were also discovered in the World Trade Center dust and are evidence that a thermite reaction took place on 9/11. Nano-thermite, a highly engineered energetic composite was conceived around 1990 and by 2000 it had been weaponized and was manufactured in large quantities in top secret military laboratories. This nano form of thermite does not just burn extremely hot, it is explosive. In this video, Dr. Steven Jones announces the publication of the recent paper ‘Active Thermitic Material Discovered in the Dust from the 9/11 Catastrophe’ published April, 2009. The implications of this peer reviewed paper are profound. Steven Jones also updates us on various facets of the quest to repudiate the ‘official conspiracy theory’ i.e. the Government/Mainstream media version of what happened on 9/11, and describes current efforts the create a legitimate investigation with real subpoena power.

Greening vs. Chandler and Newton

Greening vs. Chandler and Newton’s Laws

The occasion for Frank Greening’s letter is correspondence with several physicists, chemists, and engineers discussing arguments I made in a video posted on the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth YouTube page:

This is my response to his letter. ——————————

FG: Chandler concludes that the block was subject to a net force of 0.64M(upper)g. Prior to the collapse of WTC 1, the lower portion of the building was perfectly capable of holding up the upper block which we know exerted a downward force equal to M(upper)g. So why, once the collapse started, was the lower section of WTC 1 not able to support a load of 0.64M(upper)g?

Response: You are confused on this point. It was the net force on the upper block which was 0.64g downward. The net force consists of the downward force due to gravity combined with the upwardly directed normal force. For the net force to come out 0.64g, the normal force had to have been 0.36g. By Newton’s third law, the load on the lower section was also 0.36g.

FG: Chandler’s answer to this question: During the collapse of WTC 1, the only way the upper block could have accelerated at 64 % of g was for the lower section of the building to have continuously lost its load-carrying capacity, presumably through the occurrence of column failures ahead of the collapse front. The fact that the downward acceleration was not… Continue reading

Dick Cheney Only Had to Delay Things a COUPLE OF MINUTES to Reach his Long-Sought Goals

CIA director Leon Panetta told the New Yorker :

When you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point.

News commentator Ed Schultz said today that Cheney is wishing for a terrorist attack on the U.S.

What should we make of all this?

Well, everyone knows that Cheney is ruthless:

Dr. Steven Jones presents important features from the paper, “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe”
This talk is powerful and challenges the un-peer reviewed science of NIST, as that agency of the government tries to explain the collapse of building 7 during the 9/11 event.

Richard Gage, AE911Truth.org, on KMPH Fox 26 in Fresno, CA

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)

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!…

Germany’s gulli.com Interviews Dr. Niels Harrit

By Lars Sobiraj

May 24, 2009

gulli.com

Questions to Niels Harrit concerning the study “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe”.

Introduction:

Some time ago, gulli.com featured the news about the work of a team of independent scientists from Denmark, USA and Australia. They claim to have found a substance called Nano Thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York City. Nano Thermite is an explosive, normally only used by the military, not available on the normal market. It is a relative to thermite, a substance used for welding.

On the Gulli board one of the biggest discussions ever broke loose between so called conspiracy theorists and people who trust the official version about 9/11. More than 28.000 views. More than 800 postings. We gave sceptical gulli users the chance to ask their questions directly to Dr. Niels Harrit, one of the scientists. The gulli users asked really tough questions and didn’t censor anything. We gave all those questions to Mr. Harrit and were really curious how he would respond. He answered. So now, here’s the promised interview. The whole interview is released under this Creative Commons license, so you can copy it and spread it everywhere at no charge and without asking. You can download the PDF here.

Jesse Ventura on Howard Stern discussion 9/11 truth

Partial transcript:

Ventura: I question my government on 9/11 because–for most lay people out there they accept what they hear on TV, they accept the government’s explanation–but once you start getting in and studying what actually happened that day, there are a lot of problems.

Stern: Bottom line, what are you saying?

Ventura: I believe if our government didn’t actually participate in it they certainly knew it was going to happen and allowed it to happen.
Stern: That’s mind blowing. And you’re going to write a book backing that up?
Woman co-host: What would be the purpose of letting it happen?
Ventura: We’re in two wars, aren’t we, that we wouldn’t have been in? How much money has Halliburton made in the war? How much money has Blackwater made in the war? People fail to realize there are war profiteers out there.
Stern: So you’re talking about treason. Who are you accuse them of treason in your next book.
Ventura: Mass murder. I’m simply writing about the questions I have about it.
Stern: Is this the reason you called Bush administration the worst administration ever?
Ventura: Yeah.

Dr. Frank Legge, two new papers at the Journal of 9/11 Studies

Announcing two new papers by Dr. Frank Legge (Ph.D., Chemistry) published at journalof911studies.com:

1) “Controlled Demolition at the WTC: an Historical Examination of the Case” provides a brief history of research related to explosive demolition at the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, from Dr. Legge’s point of view. Cogent and pithy; worth the read.
http://journalof911studies.com/volume/2009/LeggeCDatWTC.pdf

2) “Frank Greening versus Isaac Newton” provides a brief expose of the “lapse” by F. Greening in understanding Newton’s Third Law — and the significance of this gaffe by Greening. Sometimes humorous, certainly enlightening.

9/11: Time for a Second Look

by David Ray Griffin

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

David Ray Griffin & Niels Harrit: 9/11: Time for a second look in Lucerne

May 9, 2009

Report for our English speaking friends:

(In German, below)

Photo of Daivd Ray Griffin in SwitzerlandOn May 7 Professor David Ray Griffin came to Lucerne Switzerland on his tour through Europe that took him to Paris, Brussels and Madrid, and several other cities for an evening under the motto: “9/11 Time for a second look”.

As a leading figure in the world wide 9/11 truth movement it was an honour to welcome him and listen to his speech live and in person. At the same time I grabbed the opportunity because of the currentness of the topic and also invited Professor Dr. Niels Harrit to our event, who published together with eight other scientists their paper about nano-thermite that they found in the dust of ground zero. That both respected personalities would inform us in the same evening was a special experience.

Photo from Lucerne presentationOn a beautiful sunny day the first attendees arrived in the  afternoon from near but also from the neighbouring countries  Germany, Austria and Italy. Some even came with their camper and used the parking lot to stay overnight.

The event started at 7 pm and the hall was full, so we began with  the lecture of Professor Griffin, who informed us about the latest  developments regarding 9/11. He told us that more and more scientists, engineers, architects, pilots, lawyers, medical  professionals and politicians are joining the truth movement who doubt the official story. As an example he said, more then 640  architects and engineers have signed with their names, who say the official reason for the collapse of the three WTCImage from Explosive Lucerne presentation buildings is impossible and ask for a new investigation.…
