Dear Mr. Cauffman,

I am writing on behalf of a group of scientists, scholars, engineers and building professionals who are dedicated to scientific research regarding the destruction of all three high-rise buildings (WTC 1, 2 and 7) on September 11, 2001.…

The NIST WTC 7 Report: Bush Science reaches its peak

by Kevin R. Ryan

In a famous book by Antoine de Saint Exupery, a little prince from another planet asks the narrator to draw a sheep. After several unsatisfactory attempts, the narrator simply draws a box and tells the little prince that the sheep is in the box. The little prince then exclaims — “That is exactly the way I wanted it!” 1

Just so, the Bush Administration asked its scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for an explanation as to what happened at the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11.…

McKinney Calls for New Investigation, Release of Files on 9/11

by Cynthia McKinney
Wednesday, 10 September 2008

Seven years ago, criminal terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon
were carried out on September 11th by hijacked planes leading to the deaths of thousands
of people. A month later, key figures in the print and broadcast media and members
of Congress were sent envelopes containing very lethal and highly weaponized
anthrax, which led to the deaths of journalists and postal employees. After
the initial shock diminished, there were calls for explanations, investigations,
accountability and a reasoned response that did not include war.…

What Really Happened on September 11?

by Sam Vaknin

An Interview with David Ray Griffin

On September 11, I entertained a couple of house guests, senior journalists from Scandinavia. I remember watching in horror and disbelief the unfolding drama, as the United States was being subjected to multiple deadly attacks on-screen. I turned to the international affairs editor of a major Danish paper and told her “This could not have been done by al-Qaida.” I am an Israeli and, as such, I have a fair “sixth sense” as to the capabilities of terrorists and their potential reach.…

‘Debunking NIST’s Conclusions About WTC 7 is as Easy as Shooting Fish in a Barrel’ and other Responses to 8/21/08 NIST Briefing on WTC7

Debunking NIST’s conclusions about WTC 7 is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel
By George Washington

Symmetrical Collapse

NIST lamely tried to explain the symmetrically (sic) collapse as follows:

WTC 7’s collapse, viewed from the exterior (most videos were taken from the north), did appear to fall almost uniformly as a single unit. This occurred because the interior failures that took place did not cause the exterior framing to fail until the final stages of the building collapse.

History Commons Is An Important Tool For 9/11 Truth

The BBC’s Demolition of 9/11 Truth

British Broadcasting contorts itself again to blast 9/11 conspiracy advocates

Jeremy Baker

(“The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower,” BBC 2, July 6, 2008)

If you want to kill a dangerous animal, you go for the jugular. If you want to demolish a building, you destroy its main supports. If you want to marginalize the burgeoning 9/11 truth movement, you attack its most popular points. This isn’t brain surgery.

In a recently broadcast documentary, The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower, the BBC presents the second of two programs confronting claims made by a growing activist movement comprised of people who doubt the official story of 9/11.…

Billboard displays burning World Trade Center with slogan, ‘Please Don’t Vote for a Democrat’

David Edwards and Muriel Kane

A political billboard in St. Cloud, Florida reads “Please Don’t Vote for
a Democrat” over an image of the burning World Trade Center.

Businessman Mike Meehan, who paid for the ad, says he’s "only trying to
help Republicans." The billboard also carries a link for Meehan’s website,, at which he says, “I claim to be a man of God”
and promotes his political song and video.…

The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites

From Steven Jones
July 4, 2008

Kevin Ryan shows his skills as both a chemist and a “private investigator” in his paper, “The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites” — Published July 4, 2008, in the Journal of 9/11 Studies

Kevin Ryan discusses nano-thermite (“super-thermite”) and provides very important results of his own investigation of connections between NIST and researchers studying/developing nano-thermite.

Several of us have been discussing nano-thermite for quite a while now.…

Tim Russert, Dick Cheney, and 9/11

Tim Russert, Dick Cheney, and 9/11

by Prof. David Ray Griffin
Information Clearing House

While we are remembering Tim Russert and his years as moderator of “Meet the Press,” we would do well to recall his interview with Vice President Dick Cheney at Camp David on September 16, 2001, just five days after the 9/11 attacks. 1 In fact, Cheney himself, during an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer the morning after Russert died, reminded us of that Camp David interview, saying: “I always, when I think of Tim and think of ‘Meet the Press,’ that’s the show that always comes to mind.…

Two New Papers at the Journal of 9/11 Studies

Banner image of Journal of 9/11 StudiesKevin Ryan, Journal of 911 Studies

Two new papers have been published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies. The first is an article by Frank Legge, called “9/11 and Probability Theory”.
Here is an excerpt:

“If we compare these two explanations for the collapse of the towers it is immediately apparent that they are different in a particularly significant way: the fire based official explanation is a series of events, like links in a chain, while the explosive based explanation is a parallel set of scientific studies of evidence.”

The second paper is a letter from Kevin Fenton, entitled “WTC Collapse Initiation Floors: What They Were And How Much Damage They Suffered”:

“It is interesting to compare the collapse initiation floor in WTC1 to the central impact floors in terms of three of the main aspects  thought to have influenced the collapse: impact damage, jet fuel spilled, and debris available to remove fire insulation.”

Senator Karen Johnson Blasts Congress for Failure to Defend U.S.

In a formal Floor speech in the Arizona Senate tomorrow (Tuesday, June 10),
Senator Karen S. Johnson plans to blast Congress for their failure to defend
U.S. citizens who were killed on September 11, 2001, and their failure to properly
investigate those attacks.

“It has been nearly seven years,” says Johnson, “and we are
faced with new evidence that turns the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission upside

The Truth is Out There (published in the ‘Financial Times’)

By Peter Barber
June 7 2008
Financial Times

When Cynthia McKinney speaks the words of Martin Luther King Jr, they resound through the church with some of King’s cadence. “A time comes,” declares the former US congresswoman from Georgia, “when silence is betrayal.” The congregation answers with whoops and calls of “That’s right!” King was talking about America’s war in Vietnam. More than 40 years later, before the packed pews of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, McKinney is speaking of the American government’s war on its own people.…

Note from David Ray Griffin, Statement of Support for the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative

David Ray Griffin
June 1, 2008

Although I was not able to be present at the rally either in person or by telephone,
I wanted to express my strong support for the NYC
9/11 Ballot Initiative

There has never been a better time to get such an initiative on the ballot, because
the 9/11 Truth Movement’s case against the official account of 9/11 is now extremely
strong—much stronger than it was just two years ago.…

Down the Osama Rabbit Hole and Into the War on Terror Wonderland

By Kristina Borjesson

Here we go again. President Bush goes to Israel. He talks to the Israeli Knesset about standing “together against terror and extremism.” He cites the example of Osama bin Laden teaching that “the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties.” The next day, yet another unauthenticated bin Laden tape surfaces. “In a tape marking Israel’s 60th anniversary,” reported the BBC, “the speaker pledged to continue fighting the Israelis and not give up a ‘single inch of Palestine.’” Once again, the lead was followed by what has now become the standard second line, “The tape’s authenticity could not be verified.” Once again, the timing is interesting.… Speaks to MIT

Arizona Senator Karen Johnson: ‘We deserve the full truth about 9/11’

We deserve the full truth about 9/11
Tale of Building 7’s collapse suggests official complicity, persistent obstruction

Regarding “Drinking the 9/11 Kool-Aid” (Editorial, April 24):

After three government investigations and more than six years, we still don’t have answers on 9/11.

Why, for example, did Building 7 collapse? It wasn’t hit by a plane, as the towers were. The 9/11 Commission Report completely ignores Building 7. The Federal Emergency Management Agency report discounts fire as a cause and concludes that the reasons for the collapse of Building 7 are unknown and require further research.…
