NOTE: The UCB tech folks have pointed out that their webcast system is brand new, and only a beta version. We all very much hope it will work perfectly, but it’s worth some finger-crossing! In the meantime, efforts are also underway to stream the audio of the full day’s events. More info as it becomes available.

Extremely hot fires caused structures to fail, BYU expert says
By Suzanne Dean
For the Deseret Morning News
EPHRAIM — A Brigham Young University physicist said he now believes an incendiary substance called thermite, bolstered by sulfur, was used to generate exceptionally hot fires at the World Trade Center on 9/11, causing the structural steel to fail and the buildings to collapse.
“It looks like thermite with sulfur added, which really is a very clever idea,” Steven Jones, professor of physics at BYU, told a meeting of the Utah Academy of Science, Arts and Letters at Snow College Friday.
The government requires standard explosives to contain tag elements enabling them to be traced back to their manufacturers. But no tags are required in aluminum and iron oxide, the materials used to make thermite, he said. Nor, he said, are tags required in sulfur.
Jones is co-chairman, with James H. Fetzer, a distinguished professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, a group of college faculty members who believe conspirators other than pilots of the planes were directly involved in bringing down New York’s Trade Towers.
The group, which Jones said has 200 members, maintains a Web site at www.st911.org. A 40-page paper by Jones, along with other peer-reviewed and non-reviewed academic papers, are posted on the site.
Last year, Jones presented various arguments for his theory that explosives or incendiary devices were planted in the Trade Towers, and in WTC 7, a smaller building… Continue reading
Thanks to www.911busters.com, we now have new footage of the Tucker Carlson/Prof. Steven E. Jones interview. This new version points out the tactics used by Tucker to discredit Prof. Jones. It also includes the footage that Tucker refused to show. The collapse of WTC7, NASA’s findings regarding the heat signatures left in the foot of the buildings, and a few other surprises.
Tucker Carlson is either as silly as his bow tie would indicate, or he’s looking for a way to expose the truth behind 9/11. Today he posted “9/11 Theorist Clearly Hits A Nerve,” regarding public response to his Monday night show with BYU Professor, Steven Jones.
Carlson first insinuates Jones is “insane,” then accuses him of being unable to articulate his hypothesis, calling him “an epically bad guest.” Apparently, Jones was expected to clearly articulate the hypothesis presented in a 26-page scientific paper in six minutes, minus Carlson’s repeated interruptions promoting the official line. (Let’s also not forget that ‘The Situation’ refused to show footage of the WTC7 collapse, which would have essentially made the case despite Carlson’s best attempts to prevent Jones from doing so.)
“We’ve never had an e-mail response like the one we got,” Carlson says, “…the overwhelming majority wrote to thank me for my ‘courage’ in putting him on, and to complain that we didn’t give him more time to explain the conspiracy. In other words, a lot of people seem to think it’s possible that the U.S. government had a hand in bringing down the World Trade Center buildings.”
Carlson then tones down his rant from what he originally said on the show last night, (video here) when he moves into his attack on 9/11 skeptics. “If you really…even considered it a possibility – how could you continue to live here? You couldn’t. You’d leave the United States on the next available flight… Continue reading
Watch Tucker Carlson of MSNBC “Interview” Prof. Jones
Several times during the interview, Professor Jones asked Carlson to run the footage of WTC7’s collapse, which he had supplied to MSNBC prior to the interview. Instead, MSNBC chose to show a picture of the building as it stood prior to the collapse, photos of rescue workers at the WTC site, including emotional footage of removal of a body, and photo of Tower 1 after the collapse.
It seems interesting that MSNBC would choose to allow Dr. Jones to speak, yet refuse to show this important video that would have shocked everyone watching with the visual evidence of what he was saying–the “implosion” of Building 7. Instead, they showed photos already seared into Americans’ minds of what we were told to believe, while allowing Jones to suggest ‘our memory is not accurate,’ so to speak. Subliminal has become an understatement in today’s world of corporate “mainstream” media.
While this may indicate our pressure is getting to them, we must continue to demand that media allow researchers to present the whole of the evidence. It seems more likely to be an indication that this scientific investigation, researched by someone with academic credentials, is potentially problematic enough to the official cover-up that they felt a need to immediately attempt to discredit Jones, before the truth can get traction with the broader public.
We have news for them–it’s too late!
If you would like to call Carlson and ask him to have Professor… Continue reading
