- "The present state of America is
truly alarming to every man who is capable of reflection." -Tom Paine
- Almost every professional and intelligent
person I have spoken with over the past few years will listen half-heartedly
as I list the reasons why 911 was an inside job. Although they acknowledge
they have little trust in the veracity and honesty of their US government
(which has lied to them consistently over the last five years), these same
intelligent people nevertheless cling to some childlike trust in the government
version of events for September 11, 2001.
- Why? Because to believe otherwise would
leave most Americans floundering like a storm-tossed ship that has lost
its rudder. An unnatural and abiding trust in government has replaced their
trust in God. Yet every godly, religious thinker-from Jeremiah to Jesus
to Mohandas Gandhi-- throughout history has warned humans about the dangers
of governments. But to actually reflect on this simple truth would leave
most folks fearful and befuddled.
- And without any understanding of history
(The Reichstag Fire for example), and without a dose of healthy skepticism,
most citizens will believe the best from their governments. If ignorance
is bliss, a childlike trust in the state must be ecstasy.
- The State Lies To Survive
- Powerful governments, too often comprised
of sociopathic men, do diabolical and murderous things everyday to consolidate
even more power and wealth. Sadly, most citizens will cling to a far-fetched,
government version of events that defies logic, basic science, credibility
and mathematical odds.
- The WTC complex of seven steel buildings
was not destroyed by two aluminum airplanes. Repeat: THE WTC COMPLEX OF
SEVEN STEEL BUILDINGS WAS NOT DESTROYED BY TWO ALUMINUM AIRPLANES. That
would be a physical impossibility. Instead the seven stout steel buildings
were purposely and utterly destroyed by clever planning and high explosions.
Not one of the seven buildings survived.
- To paraphrase CIA insider, Fletcher Prouty,
in his online essay The Guns of Dallas": "Almost everyone who
has taken the time to do any reading and thinking about that crime knows
by nowsome of the hard facts of this murder and put to rest once and for
all the 'cover-up' report..."
- Colonel Prouty was referring to the murder
of JFK and the subsequent illogical and much discredited Warren Commission
Report but he might well have said the same of the illogical and much-discredited
Kean Commission Report. The Kean Report fails to mention even the unexplained
collapse of a 47 story government building, the WTC-7!
- No Reports of A Raging Fire
- Even more perplexing: why do most Americans
prefer to take the word of proven liars over the words of honest men? Firemen,
policemen, medics, reporters and first responders; Why would they lie?
- A New York firefighter named Nick DeMasi,
searching in the ruins of the WTC days later said: "There were a total
of four black boxes (recovered). We found three."
- US officials--these very same officials
caught in scores of subsequent lies for the past five years--denied finding
any. Which people do you prefer to believe? Proven liars or honest men?
- Even more damaging, to the official government
version, a team of brave New York firemen ascended to the impacted floors
of the World Trade tower. Their exact words when seeing the fire were:
"We should be able to knock it down with two lines." ( The Memory
Hole - Excerpts From Firefighters' WTC Tape on 9/11)
- Two hoses. A half dozen men altogether,
to put out the fire.
- But, imagine, with the fires in the World
Trade Towers out, a REAL investigation would have occurred. There would
have been no need to attack Iraq. The terrorists would have been exposed
much closer to home.
- Instead the radios used by the firefighters
on the 70th floor were likely monitored, by the perpetrators, and out of
fear of being found out, the towers were hastily brought down.
- Despite all physical impossibility, seven
stout steel skyscrapers were destroyed that day. Three of the skyscrapers
allegedly collapsed due to a firestorm that quickly burnt itself out and
then smoldered. Indeed, almost miraculously, The Woman At The Edge Of The
Abyss stood on steel that MIT professors said should have been red hot.
How then could the tower have collapsed if the steel had cooled?
- Recently I completed a firefighter course
of classroom and field tests. A fire instructor mentioned the word Conduction.
Simply, conduction is a scientific law that some metals conduct heat better
than others. An iron rod or steel beam or girder will conduct heat throughout
its entire length before melting. Like your barbecue grill will maintain
its integrity although subject to repeated intense heat. Or a well-designed
and constructed skyscraper will maintain its strength and integrity although
subject to raging fires. Like that 56 story steel building in Venezuela
that recently withstood a 17-hour fire and remained standing.
- According to an Associated Press report:
"Early tests on steel beams from the World Trade Center show they
generally met or were stronger than design requirements, ruling them out
as a contributing cause of the collapse of the towers. Engineers with the
National Institute of Standards and Technology have conducted preliminary
tests on some of the 236 pieces of steel from the wreckage, said Frank
Gayle, who is leading NIST's review of the steel. The tests found that,
typical for construction steel used in the 1960s when the World Trade Center
was erected, the steel beams exceeded requirements to bear 36,000 pounds
per square inch. Often they were capable of bearing around 42,000 pounds
per square inch."
- Simply, due to Conductivity, a fuel fire
does not have the intensity and longevity to compromise a steel structure
in 45 minutes time. Or even over 17 hours. Only an absurdist-or a citizen
in denial--would believe that two aluminum airplanes and several thousand
gallons of kerosene (jet fuel) could utterly destroy seven stout steel
- Months earlier, a knowledgeable professional
man said: "The building (WTC) was designed to have a fully loaded
[Boeing] 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time (comparable
in size and weight to a 757). I believe that the building probably could
sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the
mosquito netting on your screen door -- this intense grid -- and the jet
plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does
nothing to the screen netting."
- Frank A. De Martini, Manager of WTC Construction
and Project Management, was killed in the WTC demolition. He spoke those
words with assurance, months before in a cable episode of Modern Marvels,
(World Trade Center - A Modern Marvel). He died when the towers were intentionally
- More than 300 New York firefighters died
that day. They were intentionally murdered. The confident words of that
one firefighter team, at the impact site----"we should be able to
knock it down with two lines"--- still resonate with me.
