horizontal ejection of structural steel members for hundreds of feet and the
pulverization of concrete to flour-like powder, observed clearly in the
collapses of the WTC towers, provide further evidence for the use of
explosives. [explained here] (See also,
Former employee of Underwriters Laboratories (the company that certified the steel in the WTC towers).
"We know that the steel components were certified to ASTM E119. The time temperature curves for this standard require the samples to be exposed to temperatures around 2000F for several hours. And as we all agree, the steel applied met those specifications. Additionally, I think we can all agree that even un-fireproofed steel will not melt until reaching red-hot temperatures of nearly 3000F (2). Why Dr. Brown would imply that 2000F would melt the high-grade steel used in those buildings makes no sense at all." [read more]

are some who maintain that the mythical 9/11 hijackers, although proven to be
too incompetent to fly a little Cessna 172, had acquired the impressive skills
that enabled them to fly airliners by training in flight simulators...
According to FAA radar controllers, "Flight 77" then suddenly pops up over
Washington DC and executes an incredibly precise diving turn at a rate of 360
degrees/minute while descending at 3,500 ft/min, at the end of which "Hanjour"
allegedly levels out at ground level. Oh, I almost forgot to mention: He
also had the presence of mind to turn off the transponder in the middle of this
incredibly difficult maneuver ... The maneuver was in fact so
precisely executed that the air traffic controllers at Dulles refused to believe
the blip on their screen was a commercial airliner. Danielle O'Brian, one
of the air traffic controllers at Dulles who reported seeing the aircraft at
9:25 said, "The speed, the maneuverability, the

"Any chain reaction theory would have to accommodate the fact that each of the towers unraveled completely in less than 15 seconds, which is close to the time of free fall from the top of the buildings if there had been no intervening solid structure. How could a mechanical process proceed through 100 floors with such speed?" [read more]

"Why weren't the hijacked airliners intercepted by jet fighters and shot down before they could fly into the WTC and Pentagon? Standard procedures call for any airliner that loses radio contact or goes off course to be intercepted. Four airliners were hijacked almost simultaneously, and it was obvious to air traffic controllers immediately. The transponders on the airliners were turned off. The hijackers were heard on the radio. And the four deviated drastically from their assigned courses. Was NORAD told? If not, why not? What did the air traffic controllers say, and to whom? Why did the FBI impound the tapes of those conversations? Why has the public never been told what was on them? Why weren't the congressional investigators told? The independent commission? Who is hiding what, and why? If it was just a matter of incompetence or somebody not doing their job, why hasn't anyone been fired or reprimanded? If someone ordered the standdown, who? and why? and why haven't they been charged with treason?" [read more]
25 Veteran National Intelligence Officers
A letter to the 9/11 Commission signed by FBI, military, and intelligence veterans.
"Omission is one of the major flaws in the Commission's report. We are aware of significant issues and cases that were duly reported to the commission by those of us with direct knowledge, but somehow escaped attention. Serious problems and shortcomings within government agencies likewise were reported to the Commission but were not included in the report. The report simply does not get at key problems within the intelligence, aviation security, and law enforcement communities. The omission of such serious and applicable issues and information by itself renders the report flawed, and casts doubt on the validity of many of its recommendations." [read entire letter]
Colonel, USAF (ret.)
"In all my years of direct and indirect participation, I never witnessed nor even heard of an aircraft loss, where the wreckage was accessible, that prevented investigators from finding enough hard evidence to positively identify the make, model, and specific registration number of the aircraft -- and in most cases the precise cause of the accident. This is because every military and civilian passenger-carrying aircraft have many parts that are identified for safety of flight. That is, if any of the parts were to fail at any time during a flight, the failure would likely result in the catastrophic loss of aircraft and passengers. Consequently, these parts are individually controlled by a distinctive serial number and tracked by a records section of the maintenance operation and by another section called plans and scheduling ... The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that all potential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from public view. The hard evidence would have included hundreds of critical time-change aircraft items, plus security videotapes that were confiscated by the FBI immediately following each tragic episode."

interpretations of the same event. The result consists of exceedingly

Widow and founding member of Family Steering Committee, Congressional Briefing testimony (beginning on page 10 of full report).
"For those who might question the reasoning and importance for re-examining the [9/11] Commission's report, the events that led up to and the day of September 11th, one only has to recall the enormous ramifications that the attacks of September 11th have had on our country. ...[Only] an honest re-evaluation of how the 9/11 attacks could have happened will allow us to reverse the adverse consequences of overreaching laws and the existing loop holes in our security systems in order to allow us to be safer in the future."

OTHER QUOTABLE COMMENTS
Dr. S. Shyam Sunder, (head of NIST)
A quote from a Mark Jacobson New York Magazine article (March 21, 2006) entitled "The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll"
"I asked Dr. Sunder about 7 WTC. Why was the fate of the building barely mentioned in the final report? This was a matter of staffing and budget, Sunder said. He hoped to release something on 7 WTC by the end of the year. NIST did have some "preliminary hypotheses" on 7 WTC, Dr. Sunder said. "We are studying the horizontal movement east to west, internal to the structure, on the fifth to seventh floors." Then Dr. Sunder paused. "But truthfully, I don't really know. We've had trouble getting a handle on building No. 7." [read more]
"After spending the better
part of the last five years treating these theories with utmost skepticism, I
have devoted serious time to actually studying them in recent months, and have
also carefully watched several videos that are available on the subject. I have
come to believe that significant parts of the 9/11 theories are true, and that
therefore significant parts of the 'official story' put out by the
"For the next hour and 40 minutes [after the first 9/11 hijacking] no aircraft was put into the air, even though there was the Andrews Air Force base 10 minutes from Washington DC, a flight of F16s, a whole squadron, of top level fighters. No planes were flown in from other air force bases even though at top speed they were certainly within range. How did that happen? We know that when an aircraft goes off course, it is legal requirement that aircraft are put into the air to check on the position and purpose of commercial aircraft. Why on this single day did that not happen? In the previous 9 months, it had happened 67 times. It was a routine procedure. Why did it not happen on this very important day? That question has never been answered." ~ Michael Meacher, former environment minister, Secretary of Commerce and Secretary of Health in the Blair cabinet. Actually the question has been answered, but not officially, in Mike Ruppert's book Crossing The Rubicon. Cheney ordered the interceptors to stand down.
"I measured pieces of
Soviet equipment from photographs. It was my job. I look at the hole in the
Pentagon and I look at the size of an airplane that was supposed to have hit the

it? What's going on?"

only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political,
economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally
important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the
truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the
greatest enemy of the State."

"The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force."

"What luck for rulers that men do not think."
"The size of the lie is a
definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation
are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously

more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell
little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one."

GARY HART –
Former Senator "In terms of accountability, I think this is one of the
great mysteries of the last three or four years. Three thousand Americans died
three years ago, and no one lost his or her job over it. A president who says
that he is a strong president, and those around him say he is, did not fire
anyone. Either he was misled, in which case, somebody should have been fired. Or
he misled us, in which case he should be fired."
ED ASNER - Actor and Activist "I fear that if the underlying issues of 9-11 truth are not demanded, that Iraq may be but a flame on an ocean of gasoline that may be used to ignite war after war after war. We cannot, as a peace & justice movement only address the flames. We must look at the fuel being used to justify the flames of war and repression at home and abroad.
We must look deeply at the events leading up to, on and since 9-11. We must demand full 9-11 truth." HOWARD ZINN – Author and Historian
"Whether one views the 9/11 'terrorist' attacks as blowback, a wake-up call, or an unjustified outrage, they have deeply affected the American psyche and our attitudes toward war, the future, and the world. . . .. After 9/11, this administration systematically nurtured the fear of further homeland attacks to justify its own assaults on constitutional rights as well as social and environmental programs that protected "the people" but fettered corporate power and control. . . . Democracy requires citizen vigilance, informed debate and official accountability." GORE VIDAL - Author
don't know by whom we were struck that infamous Tuesday, or for what true
purpose. But it is fairly plain to many civil libertarians that 9/11 put paid
not only to much of our fragile Bill of Rights but also to our once-envied
system of government which had taken a mortal blow the previous year when the
Supreme Court did a little dance in 5/4 time and replaced a popularly elected
President with the oil and gas Bush-Cheney junta." 'astonished military
experts cannot fathom why the government's "automatic standard order of
procedure in the event of a hijacking" was not followed' "It is
interesting how often in our history, when disaster strikes, incompetence is
considered a better alibi than .... Well, yes, there are worse things."
KURT VONNEGUT - Author
I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been. What has happened, though, is that it has been taken over by means of the sleaziest, low-comedy, Keystone Cops-style coup d'etat imaginable" RICHARD CLARKE - Top White House Terrorism Advisor during 9/11
"Frankly, I find it outrageous that the president is running for re-election on the grounds that he's done such great things about terrorism," says Clarke in Sunday's interview. "He ignored it. He ignored terrorism for months, when maybe we could have done something to stop 9/11. Maybe. We'll never know." Rumsfeld was saying we needed to bomb
Internal FBI memo June 2001 'the FBI, rather than trying to prevent a terrorist attack, "was merely gathering intelligence so they would know who to arrest when a terrorist attack occurred."
MARK FLESSNER - Chicago federal prosecutor on above case 'evidently thought that something other than incompetence was involved, saying that there "were powers bigger than I was in the Justice Department and within the FBI that simply were not going to let [the building of a criminal case] happen."
