Questions about the Official version (NIST) of events to explain the collapse of 3 buildings and the science behind the official conclusions are understandable and should be expected. A reasonable nonscientist may rightfully question how three buildings collapsed on the same day due to fire(s). (NIST official version): One building not directly hit by a plane, WTC 7, collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001; WTC 7 endured fires for almost seven hours, from the collapse of the north WTC tower (WTC 1) at 10:28:22 a.m. until 5:20:52 p.m. when WTC 7 collapsed. Consider what happens when over 2100 architects and engineers review all the video footage for 3 buildings that collapsed on 09-11? More questions than answers arise after reading the N.I.S.T. Official version of events.
A Facebook video shared on Sept. 11 claims that Larry Silverstein, who developed Building 7, ordered demolishing it. As evidence, it cites a PBS documentary, “America Rebuilds: A Year at Ground Zero,” in which Silverstein says:
“I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘You know we’ve had such a terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they decided to pull, and then we watched the building collapse.” (Video of PBS interview with Larry Silverstein featured below).
Before 09/11, no over 15-story building collapsed solely due to the fire. On 09/11, three over 15-story buildings collapsed on the same day in lower Manhattan. Why did dust samples from the site scientifically analyzed uncover Tritium? The towers turned to dust; airplanes didn’t cause buildings to turn to dust. What caused the buildings to turn to dust? How did Hani Hanjour allegedly fly American Airlines Flight 77, a Boeing 757-223 commercial jet, into the Pentagon? Has anyone viewed the footage of the alleged aircraft that crashed into the Pentagon, withheld from public view until 2006? What about the camera footage from across the street from the Pentagon that was talked about but never seen? What about over 25 first responder reports of loud explosions heard within and near WTC 1 and 2 and building seven before and during their collapse? Why was the collapse site for building 1 and 2 so low for buildings so high when the official version gave fire from jet fuel as the reason for collapse? What about the rivers of molten steel flowing underneath buildings 1 and 2 the day of and days after WTC 1 and 2 collapse first responder sightings?
“Since the crash, engineers have continued to analyze the catastrophe. The buildings came down, and engineers said, much as they would have in a controlled demolition — although a controlled collapse would have started with the strategic placement of small explosives.
The size and weight of the concrete floor pads, and the way they collapsed onto one another, help explain why so much of the mass of each building was smashed into small pieces, demolition engineers said. As each concrete floor pancaked into the one below, their combined weight grew so large that they and everything in their path broke into smaller and smaller pieces until mostly dust and small pieces of rubble remained.
Larry Gilmore, president of Controlled Blasting, a demolition company in Norcross, Ga., said the large cloud of dust coming from the fall of a tall structure was from more than the displacement of air inside. He said he noticed another phenomenon during controlled demolitions while watching tapes of the New York disaster.
”As a building falls, it pulls the atmosphere down, creating a vacuum behind it,” Mr. Gilmore said. ”Air rushes into the space that has been evacuated above and creates a downdraft that hits the debris below, pushing even more dust out with great force.”
He said that the impact of the collapse, coupled with this powerful downdraft, provided the force to propel the giant dust cloud down nearby streets and around buildings.” 1A
Wes Fults, the former manager of the flight simulator at Sawyer School of Aviation in Phoenix, gave Hanjour a one-hour orientation lesson when he arrived as a new member of the school’s “sim club” in 1998. “Mr. Hanjour was, if not dour, to some degree slippery. He never looked happy,” Fults recalled. “He had only the barest understanding of what the instruments were there to do.” (1b)
“Federal aviation authorities were alerted in early 2001 that an Arizona flight school believed one of the eventual Sept. 11 hijackers lacked the English and flying skills necessary for the commercial pilot’s license he already held, flight school and government officials say. A Federal Aviation Administration inspector even sat next to the hijacker, Hani Hanjour, in one of the Arizona classes, checked records to ensure Hanjour’s 1999 pilot’s license was legitimate but concluded no other action was warranted, but FAA officials told The Associated Press. Hanjour allegedly piloted the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11. The Arizona flight school manager told authorities the FAA inspector called her when Hanjour’s name became public after the hijackings and declared, “your worst nightmare realized,” officials said. The operations manager for the now-defunct JetTech flight school in Phoenix said she called the FAA inspector that oversaw her school three times in January and February 2001 to express her concerns about Hanjour. “I couldn’t believe he had a commercial license of any kind with his skills,” said Peggy Chevrette, the JetTechmanager. She also has been interviewed by the FBI. Marilyn Ladner, a vice president for the Pan Am InternationalFlight Academy that owned JetTech before it closed in the aftermath of Sept. 11, said the flight school expressed its concerns and believed the FAA official observed Hanjour’s weaknesses firsthand. “We did have skill level concerns and a bit of language fluency concern, and we did mention it to our FAA training center official,” Ladner said. The FAA official “did observe Hani’s limited knowledge of flying” and “did check his flight credentials. He did tell us they were valid, so he did follow up on our concern,” she said. Hanjour did not finish his studies at JetTech and left the school .” (2)
“Over five years, Hanjour hopscotched among flight schools and airplane rental companies, but his instructors regarded him as a poor student, even in the weeks before the attacks.
“At approximately 9:07 AM, the airplane leveled off at 25,000 feet and slightly changed to the east-northeast (E). One minute later, someone in the cockpit disconnected the autopilot for approximately 3 minutes. During these three minutes, the heading remained steady, yet Air Traffic control detected variations in altitude as low as 22,000 feet. The black box (cockpit recorder data) records auto pilot re-engaged; the airplane leveled at 25,250 feet and began to descend again at 9:22 AM. At approximately 9:29 AM,
when the aircraft was about 35 miles west of the Pentagon, the autopilot was disconnected (F) as the plane leveled near 7000 feet. The cockpit voice recorder then indicates slight course corrections with variations in altitude between 6800 and 8000 feet.
At 9:34 AM, the aircraft was positioned about 3.5 miles west-southwest of the Pentagon and started a right 330-degree descending turn to the right. At the end of the turn, the plane was at about 2000 feet altitude and 4 miles southwest of the Pentagon. Over the next 30 seconds, power increased to near maximum; the nose pitched down in response to control column movements. The airplane accelerated to approximately 460 knots (530 miles per hour) at impact with the Pentagon. The time of the crash was 9:37:45 AM.” (3)
Federal authorities have been aware for years that suspected terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden were receiving flight training at schools in the United States and abroad, according to interviews and court testimony.
Three days after the attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III described reports that several of the hijackers had received flight training in the United States as “news, quite obviously,” adding, “If we had understood that to be the case, we would have — perhaps one could have averted this.”
Yesterday, a senior government official acknowledged that law enforcement officials knew fewer than a dozen people with links to bin Laden had attended U.S. flight schools. However, the official said there was no information to indicate the flight students had been planning suicide hijacking attacks.
Questioning authority or official explanations for significant and complicated events is wise. The events that coalesced to allow all that occurred on September 11, 2001, are remarkable. The September 11 attacks of 2001 caused the deaths of 2,996 people, including 2,977 victims and 19 hijackers who committed murder–suicide. Thousands more were injured, and long-term health effects have arisen due to the attacks. How vulnerable did you feel as the events unfolded on September 11, 2001? Asking questions about the NIST report is not conspirational but wise, rational, and normal.

Flight Path Study – American Airlines Flight 77, signed by Jim Ritter
Chief, Vehicle Performance Division NTSB
A 2016 study from Chapman University in California, found more than half of Americans believe the government is concealing information about the 9/11 attacks. Sections of the official US government report were redacted for years – and some information is still missing.
However, that doesn’t mean there’s any evidence for the more outlandish online conspiracy theories about the attacks. Some claim the US government was complicit – that officials deliberately let the attacks happen or were even involved in the planning. Experts say part of the reason for the persistence of such conspiracy theories is the dissonance that results when people hear that a relatively small group of men using low-tech weapons caused such cataclysmic carnage.
“It’s perfectly natural when something important happens, people want to have an explanation,” says Professor Karen Douglas, a social psychologist at the University of Kent.
“Often, the official explanation appears quite mundane to people and not particularly satisfying.
“Conspiracy theories often emerge due to this need for an explanation proportional to the event itself.”
And the reinforcing nature of the online world means that the theories have hung around for a decade and a half.
“Information doesn’t necessarily spread indiscriminately how people think it does on the internet and social media. People tend to share it with people who kind of think the same way as they do about these issues in the first place,” she says.
Several books and films have propelled the theories. David Ray Griffin, a professor of religious philosophy and theology, accused the US government of complicity in the attack in his 2004 book The New Pearl Harbour.

9 11 – WTC7 – Larry Silverstein says ‘PULL IT’
It takes over two weeks to set up a controlled demolition of a building. So by admitting that he ordered the demolition of building 7 on September 11th Larry Silverstein is in fact admitting that he planned the demolition two weeks in advance. If Pull it is a demolition term. You can verify by calling a demolition company or look it up. If you don’t have time to call yourself you can listen to this recorded phone call at http://waitingforthestorm.com/mp3/pul…

William Rodriguez, who was a janitor at the North Tower of the World Trade Center, describes how he felt explosions from inside the building.
Caleb Maupin is a widely acclaimed speaker, writer, journalist, and political analyst. He has traveled extensively in the Middle East and in Latin America. He was involved with the Occupy Wall Street movement from its early planning stages and has been involved many struggles for social justice. He is an outspoken advocate of international friendship and cooperation, as well as 21st Century Socialism.
For years and years, everyone has always said that questioning the official 9/11 narrative is un-American and un-patriotic. I have always believed it was un-patriotic and un-American to NOT question the narrative. It was nice to see people talking about facts and evidence.
in the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 men armed with boxcutters directed by a man on dialysis in a cave fortress halfway around the world using a satellite phone and a laptop directed the most sophisticated penetration of the most heavily-defended airspace in the world, overpowering the passengers and the military combat-trained pilots on 4 commercial aircraft before flying those planes wildly off course for over an hour without being molested by a single fighter-interceptor.
These 19 hijackers, devout religious fundamentalists who liked to drink alcohol, snort cocaine, and live with pink-haired strippers, managed to knock down 3 buildings with 2 planes in New York, while in Washington a pilot who couldn’t handle a single-engine Cessna was able to fly a 757 in an 8,000 foot descending 270 degree corkscrew turn to come exactly level with the ground, hitting the Pentagon in the budget analyst office where DoD staffers were working on the mystery of the 2.3 trillion dollars that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had announced “missing” from the Pentagon’s coffers in a press conference the day before, on September 10, 2001.
Luckily, the news anchors knew who did it within minutes, the pundits knew within hours, the Administration knew within the day, and the evidence literally fell into the FBI’s lap. But for some reason, a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorists demanded an investigation into the greatest attack on American soil in history.
The investigation was delayed, underfunded, set up to fail, a conflict of interest and a cover-up from start to finish. It was based on testimony extracted through torture, the records of which were destroyed. It failed to mention the existence of WTC7, Able Danger, Ptech, Sibel Edmonds, OBL and the CIA, and the drills of hijacked aircraft being flown into buildings that were being simulated at the precise same time that those events were actually happening. It was lied to by the Pentagon, the CIA, the Bush Administration and as for Bush and Cheney…well, no one knows what they told it because they testified in secret, off the record, not under oath and behind closed doors. It didn’t bother to look at who funded the attacks because that question is of “little practical significance“. Still, the 9/11 Commission did brilliantly, answering all of the questions the public had (except most of the victims’ family members’ questions) and pinned blame on all the people responsible (although no one so much as lost their job), determining the attacks were “a failure of imagination” because “I don’t think anyone could envision flying airplanes into buildings ” except the Pentagon and FEMA and NORAD and the NRO.
The DIA destroyed 2.5 TB of data on Able Danger, but that’s OK because it probably wasn’t important.
The SEC destroyed their records on the investigation into the insider trading before the attacks, but that’s OK because destroying the records of the largest investigation in SEC history is just part of routine record keeping.
NIST has classified the data that they used for their model of WTC7’s collapse, but that’s OK because knowing how they made their model of that collapse would “jeopardize public safety“.
The FBI has argued that all material related to their investigation of 9/11 should be kept a secret from the public, but that’s OK because the FBI probably has nothing to hide.
This man never existed, nor is anything he had to say worthy of your attention, and if you say otherwise you are a paranoid conspiracy theorist and deserve to be shunned by all of humanity. Likewise him, him, him, and her. (and her and her and him).
Osama Bin Laden lived in a cave fortress in the hills of Afghanistan but somehow got away. Then he was hiding out in Tora Bora but somehow got away. Then he lived in Abottabad for years, taunting the most comprehensive intelligence dragnet employing the most sophisticated technology in the history of the world for 10 years, releasing video after video with complete impunity (and getting younger and younger as he did so), before finally being found in a daring SEAL team raid which wasn’t recorded on video, in which he didn’t resist or use his wife as a human shield, and in which these crack special forces operatives panicked and killed this unarmed man, supposedly the best source of intelligence about those dastardly terrorists on the planet. Then they dumped his body in the ocean before telling anyone about it. Then a couple dozen of that team’s members died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
This is the story of 9/11, brought to you by the media which told you the hard truths about JFK and incubator babies and mobile production facilities and the rescue of Jessica Lynch.
If you have any questions about this story…you are a batshit, paranoid, tinfoil, dog-abusing baby-hater and will be reviled by everyone. If you love your country and/or freedom, happiness, rainbows, rock and roll, puppy dogs, apple pie and your grandma, you will never ever express doubts about any part of this story to anyone. Ever.
Donald Rumsfeld Announces Pentagon Lost $2.3 Trillion Dollars on September 10, 2001
Key Points: 7:50 2.3 trillion (“we cannot track 2.3 Trillion in transactions”) is not the same as losing 2.3 trillion in fairness. Worse, in some ways, the Defense Department lost track (accounting) of 2.3 Trillion in transactions. The net difference remains 2.3 Trillion dollars of money allocated to Defense is not accounted for, so “lost.”
The US government lost 2.3 trillion dollars, announced on September 10, 2001, by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Plans to “liberate the Pentagon” are unveiled, and a team to accomplish this is assigned.
“The topic today is an adversary that poses a serious threat to the security of the United States of America. This adversary is one of the world’s last bastions of central planning. It governs by dictating five-year plans. From a single capital, it attempts to impose its demands across time zones, continents, oceans, and beyond. With brutal consistency, it stifles free thought and crushes new ideas. It disrupts the defense of the United States and places the lives of men and women in uniform at risk. Perhaps this adversary sounds like the former Soviet Union, but that enemy is gone: our foes are more subtle and implacable today. You may think I’m describing one of the last decrepit dictators of the world. But their day, too, is almost past, and they cannot match the strength and size of this adversary. The adversary’s closer to home. It’s the Pentagon bureaucracy. Not the people but the processes. Not the civilians but the systems. Not the men and women in uniform but the uniformity of thought and action that we too often impose on them. In this building, despite this era of scarce resources taxed by mounting threats, money disappears into duplicative duties and bloated bureaucracy—not because of greed but gridlock. Innovation is stifled—not by ill intent but by institutional inertia. Just as we must transform America’s military capability to meet changing threats, we must transform how the Department works and what it works on. We must build a Department where each dedicated person here can apply their immense talents to defend America, where they have the resources, information, and freedom to perform. Our challenge is to transform how we deter and defend and how we conduct our daily business. Let’s make no mistake: The modernization of the Department of Defense is a matter of some urgency. It could be said that it’s a matter of life and death, ultimately, every American’s. A new idea ignored may be the next threat overlooked. A person employed in a redundant task could be countering terrorism or nuclear proliferation. Every dollar squandered on waste is one denied to the warfighter. That’s why we’re here today, challenging us all to wage an all-out campaign to shift Pentagon’s resources from bureaucracy to the battlefield, from tail to tooth. We know the adversary. We know the threat. And with the same firmness of purpose that any effort against a determined adversary demands, we must get at it and stay at it. Some might ask, how in the world could the Secretary of Defense attack the Pentagon in front of its people? I reply that I have no desire to attack the Pentagon; I want to liberate it. We need to save it from itself. The men and women of this department, civilian and military, are our allies, not our enemies. They too are fed up with bureaucracy; they, too, live with frustrations. I hear it every day. And I’ll bet a dollar to a dime that they want to fix it too. I bet they even know how to fix it, and if asked, they will get about fixing it.”

PBS Documentary 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out Final Edition, 60min
This final edited 60-minute version of the documentary “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out” (ESO) was broadcast in 2012 on Colorado Public Television (CPT12) in the USA. It was streamed on PBS national website and quickly listed among the top 5 there nationwide as “Most Watched” and “Most Shared” for over three weeks. Article: http://www1.ae911truth.org/en/news-se… Today in 2015 is available in 18 languages and online worldwide, including streaming in Australia at the major news portal Sydney Morning Herald. Colorado Public Television (cpt12.org) and PBS have courageously honored their mission statements as being at the forefront of our nation’s public service media network. CPT12 recently utilized this documentary film from Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth as a featured item during their annual fundraising campaign. The PBS national website then posted the re-broadcast, which became one of their “Most Watched” and “Most Shared” programs on PBS for several days! Please support the organization which made this program possible by purchasing the DVD or making a tax-deductible donation at www.AE911TRUTH.org. We are approaching the 14th year since that fateful day in September, and more and more people are becoming aware that they haven’t gotten the whole story of 9/11. Over 2300 architects & engineers are leading the way at AE911TRUTH, with dozens of additional professionals joining them in this documentary to put their careers on the line in their demand for a new independent investigation. High-rise architects, structural engineers, scientists, physicists, chemists, scholars, educators, firefighters, forensic fire engineers, demolition experts, and others have put together a ground-breaking scientific assessment of the events at the World Trade Center. The sudden, complete collapse of the third skyscraper on 9/11, WTC Building 7, at 5:20 pm, is now seen worldwide as “the smoking gun,” which disproves the official story about 9/11. These experts also introduce additional “overwhelming evidence” for a controlled demolition hypothesis at WTC, which is disturbing. The film does not speculate and empathizes with viewers by presenting the most popular segment of the film, which introduces the professional perspectives of eight psychologists who explain why it is so hard for people to face scientific evidence. This is the most scientific and compelling 9/11 documentary film to date, containing vital information that demands action from all of us. We can no longer afford to ignore the World Trade Center evidence—shortened 58.5-minute version for promotional use. Please support AE911Truth by buying a DVD, donating – or, however, you can – watching and sharing. This is a great way to support us too! Thanks!

September 11 attacks, also called the 9/11 attacks, were a series of airline hijackings and suicide attacks committed in 2001 by 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda against targets in the United States, the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil in U.S. history. The attacks against New York City and Washington, D.C., caused extensive death and destruction and triggered an enormous U.S. effort to combat terrorism. Some 2,750 people were killed in New York, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in Pennsylvania (where one of the
