Where is the wreckage on the Pentagon lawn..
What caused tower 7, but no other "non-hit" towers to fall.
until those are answered, nothing that is said about Sept. 11, 2001 can be taken seriously.
Then the next thing would be to explain how "cool" burning jet fuel and office equipment (cool burning as well) melted those beams. The "story" of the fire weakening the beams has been debunked (or so it seems).. the next requisit step for the Administsration is to prove the fuel and equipment could have gotten hot enogh (hint: they can't).

Why did Silverstein, the leaseholder, admit to "pulling" building 7, while the official story claims it collapsed due to fires? (Tiny fires at that.) It is painfully obvious that the official story is bogus. There was no real investigation into the most heinous crime ever commited on American soil.
I live in Thailand. Most people I talk to about 9/11 believe PNAC is behind it. They even publish full magazines on PNAC's (Cheney, Jeb Bush, Wolfowitz, et al) involvement in 9/11. Most American's are completely oblivious to the existence of PNAC. For American's, ignorance is bliss. Indeed, it's so much better believing in the bogeyman (with a boxcutter).

I saw this on satellite TV the other day. It was a show about the Controlled Demolition Inc. Company.
The largest steel structure imploded
There is a link to the video at the start of the article.
Watching that video should make a believer out of anyone!

I completely agree with Quixote (above post).
I have never bought the "official" story. I heard about the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) document shortly after September 11th and I read page 51 where it speaks of needing a "new Pearl Harbor" in order to accomplish the goals of PNAC. Then, conveniently on September 11th we have this new "Pearl Harbor," which took place just 9 months after the Judicial Coup following the 2000 stolen "election." As one local talk show host has said repeatedly since 911 and I quote: Politically speaking, 911 was the best thing to ever happen to George W Bush." He's correct.
Most people I talk with here in the States cannot even consider that "their government" would stoop so low as to engineer something as heinous as a new "Pearl Harbor." After the 2000 stolen "election," I put nothing past these scum of the earth people of the illegitimate Bush regime. They will do anything, and I mean anything, to accomplish their goals.

Please watch Loose Change 9/11 (2nd Edition).
It will help everyone understand that these stolen elections are just an ancillary pick pocket operation compared to the overall PNAC murder/propaganda/crime of the century/& coverup racket.

You people are quite wacko..... in my opinion.
Ok, I'm ignorant about this PNAC. Never heard of it. So go ahead and tell us about your wacko conspiracy theories.
I live in north Florida (not Leon County). Jeb Bush is my Governor. The only thing that Jeb has to be embarrassed about is his daughter's illegal mistake. His son, George P. Bush is in law school and I've seen his speeches. He's a great role model for young men with confidence and talent. But I forget, you people here are only interested in hate.
Oh, Savanister will get on me for not staying on topic, even though he gets off topic too, so ok....
Charlie Sheen is a great actor with the same fantastic talent as his father. I have enjoyed many movies that they have appeared in. But their job as an actor does not give them knowledge about explosions, steel structures, fire temperatures, jet fuel, airplane impact, etc.
He has the right to his wacko opinions, certainly, just as much as you and me. But some famous people use their fame to spread their opinions, either for the right or the left, which you or I don't have access to that kind of power.
What is your job, Savanister? What are your qualifications to judge how the WTC fell? Perhaps you have researched something, so please provide the link to verified documents on the topic. I'll be glad to read it.
Since my job is not involving fire, explosions, and jet fuel, I choose to belive what the experts have publicly said.
Perhaps Charlie Sheen should visit here too. He might help to bolster your conspiracy theories.
The terrorists chose planes bound for California so that they would have the biggest fuel load they could get and not arise suspicion. The towers did not instantly fall. It took time for that large volume of aviation fuel to burn to the high degrees needed to weaken the steel structure supporting the concrete slabs of ONE floor. Once that one floor fell onto the next floor, the steel frame was weakened and could not support the weight of TWO floors (plus the kinetic engery of the impact of the 1st floor), so then that steel frame broke and the two floors fell onto the third floor, and so on and so on. The floors above the impacted floors fell along with them. Did you not notice the terrorist pilots dip the wing (turn the plane slightly) in order to maximize the amount of damage they would do to the structure's frame and floors.
The only thing that I have some experience with is that when I was in the Navy, I worked in Naval Aviation maintenance at NAS bases and onboard aircraft carriers. I was trained on how dangerous jet fuel is, more so than gas used in cars.
Again, I'm not a scientist and I'm not pretending to be one. I can only repeat what I read and heard back in 2001.
You people and Charlie Sheen have heard the same explaination. Any reasonable person would understand what happend. But you people are unreasonable. Your hatred for the President and his people drive you too far from reason.
Have a "nice" day!

This link used to be good and may still be--
to "Loose Change" documentary in which the maker discusses and has the footage on all sorts of gaps in the 9-11 story including the towers "implosion", etc.
The documentary was free and it runs about an hour. View it online.
I am not convinced by all of it, but the most troubling lack of evidence for me is the Pentagon crash, not the Trade Center.
Anyway, if the link is still good--see for yourself.
ANd uh--Good for Charlie.

To put it in perspective, let me list some of the amazing things that Alex Jones believes:
The ruling elite of the world worship Moloch.
The secret rulers of the world can live forever.
The elite have openly announced that they want to kill 80% of us.
Vicente Fox can morph into a green devil. (Alex says he saw him do it. Honest.)
The Communist Chinese Army has taken over the Massachusetts Port Authority.
Jacques Cousteau wants to kill 80% of us. (Jacques, too!)
There are live AIDS viruses in the corn. (This means no sex with the corn. Sorry.)
91% of Americans are Nazis (Alex says anyone who favors gun control is a Nazi; 91% of Americans favor mandatory handgun registration)
The government is spraying us with EVIL CHEMICALS contained in the contrails of planes (also poisoning themselves, I guess)
The United Nations goes around Africa, sterilizing women at random (twirling their moustaches & saying "Nya-ha-ha-haa!")
The Founding Fathers were stupid (they were Masons––but they didn't know about the secret conspiracy so obvious to Alex & his friends)
all our soldiers are stupid (our honored dead were mere fools compared to Alex Jones)
Waco was a government plot.
Most power outages are government plots.
Illegal immigration is a government plot.
The counterculture is a government plot.
Vaccines are a you-know-what.
Thumbscanning is a government plot.
Environmentalism is a government plot.
The National Seatbelt Initiative is a government plot.
Feminism is a government plot.
Tollroads are a government plot.
Antidepressants are a government plot.
All domestic terror attacks are government plots.
Arnold Schwartzeneggar is part of an Austrian plot to take over America.
Skull & Bones is part of an English plot to take over America.
The United Nations is part of a (very slow) plot to take over America.
Children's cartoons are part of a government plot to brainwash us.
The secret ruling elite of the world are putting up buildings that look like owls (only conspiracy people can see these owls, in case you were wondering)
Most major police chiefs are CIA operatives.
Gloria Steinham is a CIA operative.
The Quakers are all communists.
All of Clinton's cabinet were Jewish.
People have tattoos saying "Don't Kill Me" in Holland.
Lyndon Johnson had John Kennedy killed.
The UN has sold thousands of children into slavery & for snuff films.
Gays are actively recruiting in our schools.
The government keeps "giant, honeycombed hives full of toddlers drugged on lithium."
The Rothschilds funded Hitler.
91% of Americans are Nazis (Alex says anyone who favors gun control is a Nazi; 91% of Americans favor mandatory handgun registration)
The government is spraying us with EVIL CHEMICALS contained in the contrails of planes (also poisoning themselves, I guess. Shows you how ruthless the elite are.)
The United Nations goes around Africa, sterilizing women at random (twirling their moustaches & saying "Nya-ha-ha-haa!")
The Founding Fathers were stupid (they were Masons––but they didn't know about the secret conspiracy so obvious to Alex & his friends)
Every soldier who died in any war since the Civil War was a chump (you thought they were heroes; turns out they were nothing but fools; how's THAT for patriotism?)
Antidepressants are a government plot.
The United Nations is part of a (very slow) plot to take over America.
Mercury travels from Africa to Austin on the Jet Stream. That's why Austinites have so many allergies.
IQ's are going down. (IQ's are going up.)
The cancer rate is up. (Most cancer rates are down.)
During his inauguration, President Clinton openly gave the sign of Satan for all the world to see. (They all worship Moloch, don't forget. I don't know how we get to Satan from there...but Alex says.)
Alex Jones is saving humankind with his cable TV show, radio shows, & tapes (available for purchase, by the way).
Bad people are deliberately putting cancer viruses, AIDS viruses, & mercury in our vaccines (twirling their long moustaches & going "Nya-hahaha!").
9-11 was only the beginning; there are going to be lots of even bigger domestic attacks (4 years & waiting on this prediction, Alex).
Most Americans believe the government was behind 9-11 (this is based on Alex's misreading of a Zogby poll; Alex misreads EVERYTHING)
They sacrifice babies at Bohemian Grove. (Imagine Richard Nixon sacrificing a baby.)
They only hire people with IQ's below 100 to become police officers. (Like most "Patriots," Alex Jones is essentially a cop-hater. He will say anything bad about the police.)
Alex Jones can predict the future, because he goes to the SECRET WEBSITES where the New World Order tells you
EVERYTHING IT'S GOING TO DO.
Just think: if you can find those websites, YOU can predict the future too!

Ok, while I was typing my comment #8, others posted answering what I wondered about, PNAC. I'll go read those links later tonight.
But you people, along with Charlie Sheen, really gotta get a grip on reality here. Controlled implosion of the WTC? I've heard that the amount of explosives to bring down a big building is huge, so would be noticed by the people who work there, I hope.
Anyway, talk at ya later!

It's not huge sin to be ignorant. We were all ignorant once.
Well, now it's 4 and 1/2 years, and still being ignorant does reflect on your ability to examine evidence and think for yourself.
Read Webster Tarpleys book: 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in America
I think I've spent over 1,000 hours researching 9/11. The evidence points to bone-chilling conclusions. I'm not a Bush Basher: I think he's clueless. On the other hand, Cheney / Rumsfeld, these guys are scarry.

On a different site I saw that there was large amounts of molten metal in the wreckage.
How did that happen?
Jet fuel and burning office furniture cannot melt steel. Some were postulating that an explosive like thermite would have to be used to melt steel girders like that.
Also, this is the first time that a "fire" has ever brought down a building like this. Sound a little fishy?

Read, read, read, my child.
Engineers all over the world knew right away that the story of 9/11 was false.
That's the general concensus among engineers. They say the towers' huge central steel beams could not have come down the way they did & for the reasons given.
There's a group of firefighters that claimed, & were recorded as claiming, at the time, to see & hear explosives going off at the ground level before the rest fell. They've been told they only thought they saw & heard it.
Then there are the put options on the stock market....etc. etc.

Talk about a defensive wingbat, you really take the cake.
What is so frightening to you about seeking the truth. It is not possible, under our natural laws, for the South & North towers, nor any tower, to fall in 10 seconds, except through a controlled demolition (free fall). GW Bush can shred up and piss upon our laws and the Constitution, repeal Habeas Corpus, and violate every last right in our Bill of Rights, but he can not violate natural laws such as gravity and Newton's Laws of Motion. Please said aside your bizarre and childish arrogance and open your mind. See www.loosechange911.com then come back here and tell us the answer to the questions posed. Not only is it impossible that jet fuel caused a perfect free fall implosion of the towers and the inexplicable implosion and free fall of WT7 (that was never hit by anything), there is no possibility whatsoever that a 757 hit the Pentagon. These are just facts, plain and simple. You may have some whacked out tin foil conspiracy theory that Muslim terrorists imploded our buildings and torpedoed the Pentagon --- fine --- but what's your explanation for the purposeful cover up of the implosions by the Bush crime syndicate? Just curious.

It has been estimated that 4000 pounds of explosives would be needed per building thats 40 trips for 10 people over a period a 3 or 4 days thats not that much. As for people noticing go to st911.org theres more than enough info, articles, videos to keep you busy.

Why is this so hard to believe? I mean it's like no one ever heard of the Reichstag Fire or the "surprise attack" on Pearl Harbor..... or Operation Northwoods.
You don't have to be a scientist to observe and criticise the obvious political uses of 9-11. No one remembers if Marinus van der Lubbe used diesel or kerosene or gasoline, No, what is remembered is that it was used to push the Enabling Act and abolish democracy.
"This is a God-given signal, Herr Vice-Chancellor! If this fire, as I believe, is the work of the Communists, then we must crush out this murder pest with an iron fist!" --- Hitler

David READ this. Please know I have a LOT of respect for you and all your hard work. I see all you do and you get a HUGE thanks from me.
BUT; You discredited him right off that bat when all the man did was state facts and ask some questions.
I am sorry David, but WHAT is that Headline about??? That was a Fox News Headline if I ever saw one. Maybe if you stated a Truth as a headline such as Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Explanation;
THAT would have told the truth without a Fox News slant. You've been watching MSM too long.
Just because you believe the official story spoon fed by the government, doesn't mean you have to jump in with MSM and say someone is BUYING into a Conspiracy theory.
Sheen did not GIVE a theory FYI. He simply stated facts. So I am not sure where ANYONE is saying that people for 9/11 Truth are Theorizing about WTC's turning to dust, or being the only Steel Structured Buildings in History to collapse (in UNDER 2 hours no less)
Where is the "THEORY"? in anything he stated?
WHERE is the PLANE at the Pentagon?? Where is it?
Sorry to get angry but DAMN IT, "conspiracy theory" is a right wing talking point and buying in to using it in IMPROPER sense, JUST supports the wing nuts and the destroying of America.
NOTHING Sheen said is a theory. He stated facts.
BTW . . . If anyone finds a picture of the plane at the Pentagon, Me who lives near there would love to see it.

One of the telling facts is the speed at which the towers collapsed.
You are correct - they didn't collapse instantly - no one has said they did. BUT when they did collapse it was at the speed of free fall gravity. They took only about 0.75 seconds longer than free fall if I remember correctly. The loose change link will tell you exactly.
For them to pancake one floor onto the next as you postulate there would have been resistance which would have slowed the process.
Also a major portion of the vertical steel structure was on the outside surface of the building and it seems much more of it should have been left standing as the floors collpsed down within it. The horizontal structural members holding up the floors are much smaller than the vertical members holding up the whole building and they would have sheared away from the verticals as the floors pancaked. The videos show the whole structure turning into dust just below the area which is moving down. As many engineers have stated the energy needed to pulverize the concrete and steel in such a manner far exceeds the energy released by these objects falling.
The top of one of the towers tips over to one side as it starts to fall. If there were resitance caused by the structure below this rotation would have continued. Instead it drops straight down. This shows there was no resistance from below.
Also the antennae on top of one building also fell straight down to the ground like a spear. The firefighters hung the flag from it afterwards. Resistance from below most likely would have caused it to tip over.
Although I am not a structural engineer, I do have some background in it and have worked in the construction industry for 30 years. I know how things are put together and how they come apart.
Loose Change 2 is a chilling look at all the things you didn't hear from our government.
Do not trust the government, question everything they do or say. The great people who founded this country believed in those principles and made all the checks and balances they could think of at the time with those thoughts in mind.
The current government is doing everything in it's power to over-ride those checks and balances and ride roughshod over this country and its constitution.

Perry Logan seems to be preoccupied with Alex Jones. He posts the same "information" everywhere. Google it. He's simply pissed he doesn't get airtime.
Yes, if I suspend logic and the laws of physics I can accept the official story, but I can't.
Questioning the story is acceptable. Accepting bullshit is not. If you think for one minute the government gives a flying fuck about citizens you'll be quite happy. If they cared they would have responded to Katrina.
Charlie Sheen may have cavorted but he's still entitled to an opinion.

Oh Also, I was a journalism student back in the early 80's (in college), right before they did away with the Fairness Doctrine and things started going downhill and the Rise of Ricky was facilitated.
Check this out (People have forgotten this), but it how I was taught to report in college
The Fairness Doctrine
It was not meant to be abused and that anyone saying it violated the first ammendment is ridiculous. It was meant to protect people from the very thing that is destroying our country today, opinion and misinformation in something that is called "news".
Commentary and opinion were allowed, but you had to state that you were doing so, so as not to misinform the public.
Also, emotionally charged and stirring words were discouraged from legitimate broadcasts, calling themselves "news."
Just the facts. Just the facts.
COMMENT #29 [Permalink]
said on 3/23/2006 @ 4:35 pm PT...
If you're serious about looking into 9/11, then I advise you to examine closely everything about Building 7. For me, building 7 is the key to everything.
I have a Ph.D. in Physics, and I'm skeptical of almost EVERYTHING. When enough evidence accumulates, I START to become convinced of things.
WTC 1 and 2 perhaps fell because of the airplanes that hit them. Perhaps that large of a structure might fall in the event of a massive structural weakening.
Building 7 on the other hand (look at a map) is over a block away from 1 and 2. It was far less damaged than several other buildings which were RIGHT NEXT to 1 and 2, and yet those nearby buildings didn't fall even with much more damage.
The official report on 9/11 which investigates the WTC portion clearly states at the end of the report that the collapse of building 7 'warrants further investigation'. Even the OFFICIAL report can't explain its collapse. (you'll have to dig for the link sorry I read the report a year ago).
Larry Silverstein on PBS, the owner of the building, clearly says building 7 was pulled 'to prevent the loss of more life'. Now you've been in the military. Do you think building 7 could have been intentionally rigged with explosives during the chaos of 9/11 in just a few hours in order to demolish it and save lives? Do you think the structure of the building could have been analyzed in enough detail and the materials and expertise brought on site to wire explosives and bring the building down in just a few hours at ground zero? No? Then consider the alternative. Building 7 quite likely was therefore rigged with explosives BEFORE 9/11. This might have been done merely as a prevenative measure after the failed 1993 bombing. There were CIA and FBI offices in building 7 after all. However, if it WAS rigged with explosives (and all of the evidence points to the fact that it was), then that means OTHER WTC buildings might ALSO have been wired with explosives. In fact it would be PROBABLE, since building 7 was not previously attacked.
Perhaps such rigging with explosives was done as a preventative measure after the 1993 attempt. I mean had the 1993 attempt dangerously weakened the building, they would have had to worry about how to bring down the building safely. Based upon that, its not unforseeable that the gov't secretly rigged the building in order to save lives in the event the building was damaged in another terrorist attack. Maybe they even did that exact thing on 9/11. I.e. it doesn't mean the administration planned or colluded in 9/11, but it would mean they're lying to the american people (for our own protection? or to cover their butts?).
There are other weird things. Bush's brother, Marvin, not only is on the Board that insures the WTC, he ran the SECURITY company for building 7 and the WTCs. He also was part owner of the company that ran security at Dulles, where one of the flights originated. Coincidence? Its certainly strange.
I'll finish with this. Look into what happened when Payne Stewart's airplane went off course and didn't respond to ATC. Within 20 minutes he got a 2-fighter escort. Since he wasn't going to crash into a city, they let the plane run out of fuel and crash. This was for a puny small jet.
Why weren't there fighter escorts sent out on 9/11 when not 1, but FOUR major airliners went without response, turned off their transponders and even reported hijackings in some cases? Why for Payne Stewart and why not for 9/11? Was the government running a drill? Was it an honest mistake? Perhaps, but it STILL means the government is lying to us about the 'official' version of events for 9/11. Whether its to cover their butts or because someone high up within CAUSED it, I'm not certain. But I'm not buying the official story in any case. Too much evidence points against the official story.
Also, how long did it take to find John Malvo the highway shooter or anything about him? A month? How come within 24 hours we knew everything about the hijackers on 9/11 including video and still shots of them? Doesn't that strike you as a bit pre-packaged to deliver ALL that information within just 1 or 2 days?

Rev. Griffin covered all this in his Madison speech, I believe. Don't know if Mike J. saw that speech, but I remember the gist of it. Rev. Griffin said no building had ever collapsed from heat in that manner before, and there was no reason to believe the twin towers would have.
Mike J. should also explain for us how a jetliner could have hit the Pentagon, when the residual damage was far too small to have been caused by any large aircraft. While he's at it, he might also discuss Tower # 7, which collapsed without being struck by a plane.
I'm no engineer, but Mike hasn't made a case that I can discern for accepting the official verson.

This is what happens when a government is secretive, the world is managed by enormous private interests through their control of public policy, and reality is shaped by corporate media and their particular brand of sophistry.
Was there ever a time when questioning the government was commonplace, even applauded? Of course the 9-11 commission was a joke and they've tried to cover up or halt every investigation from able danger to phase II, but that's not enough to set off the alarm in the public consciousness. Ultimately what Charlie Sheen or Alex Jones say won't matter. History reveals all, and decades from now some document will be declassified or some agent will reveal something. Historically speaking, the best thing the 9-11 truth community (I don't count myself as a part of it) could do is compile the most accurate information, record the most testimony, sort out the blatant disinformation, and make the best case it can today. I see a lot of films about the subject, many recycling the same information. I'd say its about time to put the theories to the test. I saw a JFK program on the discovery channel where they recreated the entire day using two film clips and an audio tape. Went to the room where the shot was fired, set up microphones all over the plaza and recreated the shot. With the sheer amount of footage, photos, and other data available on 9/11 there's no reason why this hasn't already been done. Do a simulation of the structures collapsing, the steel melting, pulverizing, et c. Until I see a video of this magnitude, I can't see the movement as anything more than a historical footnote.
Oh yeah. I've seen Perry Logan on Huffington Post's contagious festival. His videos are stupid and he's a self-promoting goober.

Oh, poor little pRicky.. what does elections have to do with your government killing thousands of civilians to spark national panic?
I'll ask again, nice and slow for pRicky and Mike J...
Where is the wreackage on the Pentagon lawn? A HUGE airliner supposedly hit it, and THERE IS NO WRECKAGE.. get it?
Why did tower 7 fall if it wasn't hit by anything and only had a small fire? The government doesn't discuss that at all.. hmm.. odd, don't you think?
As for the fires, Mike J. .. I've read the "opinions" of the "scientists" who talk about the "maximum burning temperature" of jet fuel, and the "weakening point" of steel. there's a few THOUSAND degrees difference (if I recall correctly.. might only be 1500 or so.. I"d have to go look it back up).

Oh, fer Chrissakes. I remember a report I heard that said back then that the towers collapsed the way they did because THEY WERE DESIGNED THAT WAY to minimize damage to the surrounding area.
Why do we pay any attention to what celebrities "think?" The Sheenman couldn't think his way out of a paper bag. He appears in the movies (thanks to nepotism) and we are supposed to take his views on engineering seriously? Get off it.

Oh.. and Mike J.
In addition.. if you watch closely as the second tower falls (I believe it was the second one), you will notice that it STARTS TO LEAN, then CHANGES DIRECTION and falls "straight down" in a "free fall" manner. Physics doesn't allow that to happen.. that is, just as the top started to "fall over", the structure under it "pulls it straight down" instead. Not consistent with "pankaking"
Then you have the "flashes" from the planes seen at several angles just before the planes hit. Sorry, commercial liners don't "shoot things" from their bellies.. What were those flashes? They were shown NOT to be glare from the sun (multiple angles means you can't get the same flare, light reflections don't work like that). There is speculation that the planes launched small missles at the time of impact to make sure they penetrated completely.
Oh, and for the "heat" of the fire.. there are pictures of people STANDING IN THE HOLES where the planes went in.. that means the temperatures were pretty low.. certianly too low to be bothering steel, unless you believe humans can withstand more heat than metal..
The only bit from the "explinations" I've seen so far that I don't know about yet are the "squibs" shooting out from all the windows as the building falls. I can concieve of how that would be concussion-driven from a pankaking building, but from some of the info, it would be no where near as pronounced as it is. Since I"ve never seen a HUGE building "pankake" like that (before), I don't have a frame of refrence (and not being a physicist, not qualified to determine the force needed/generated for materials to be blown out like that).
As to your question of what I do.. I'm a Software Engineer (BS in Computer Science). I have a background in science in general, with a LOT of math and physics (I was enrolled with a Physics major at one point). Trust me, I understand the bulk of this stuff well enough to know that "something really stinks" with the official story (like, "where is the plane at the Pentagon?").
Do some research. You'll get pissed that our Media has not asked these questions, has not pointed out that ALL THE STEEL from Ground Zero was "hurried off and melted down with no investigation".. you will start to see just how screwed up this all was, even if it WAS a "genuine attack"..
You might also run across the reports of up to at least 7 of the "hijackers" being ALIVE AFTER the attacks. And the info that shows how cell phones don't work all that well at 20,000 feet moving 400 mph, so the calls we heard become suspect as well (I still need to do more research on that, I suppose).
Anyway.. to call us "nuts" when you've not bothered to "look at any of the facts" when they are all easily accessable on the internet is to show your lack of concerne with the truth. Which is fine, you're entitled. Just don't be suprised when you're standing there wondering why everyone is laughing at you.

It's creepy to see the whole official story debunked in one 80 minute movie. We need to copy and get this film out to everyone in Congress.

Cyteria, where did you read that "in the event of an off-axis collision, the buildings were designed to fall straight down instead of toward the hole, as would be the mandate of physics" ?
What -I- read some place was that after the first attack there was a secret contract to set the building for demo in the event it was attacked again.. so that if it DID start to fall, or looked like it was destroyed beyond repair and needed to be demo'd in a hurry to protect people, it could be.
Which seems more plausable.. designing a building so it defies physics? or putting demo charges in super-tall buildings to make sure they don't fall over on their neighbors some day?

Guys, you don't rig a building with C4 in case of another attack because it's DANGEROUS stuff, could bring it down into its footprint with no attack. That's just mental gymnastics to try to explain what is CLEAR.
And, if they designed the building to fall into its footprint, it STILL would not come down in so near to free fall time. Pancaking takes MUCH longer.
If it was in any part a terrorist attack to start out with, they got a LOT of help from VERY powerful people inside. Not a shred of doubt about that.

Applying Occam's Razor - that one should always choose the theory that requires the fewest leaps of logic - I just can't in good concience say I still believe the US government's faith based conspiracy theories about what happened that day.
I don't really give a damn what ANY celebrity says - or any politician either, for that matter.
I do, however, listen to scientists, physicists and engineers who have laid out enough evidence to convince me that the laws of physics were NOT suspended in New York City on 9/11/01.
And the thing is, I, like a lot of other Americans, DID believe it - as much as I love this country, I WANTED to believe it - until I read enough of the evidence to the contrary. It actually took a few years to change my mind - cognitive dissonance is a powerful, painful force.
And for anyone who says "Our government would NEVER do something like that!" - google "Operation Northwoods".
Never underestimate the lengths to which some humans will go to forward their own agenda.
That agenda is pretty much spelled out at www.newamericancentury.org

I have experience in designing buildings. I have some understanding of how they go together and come apart. I am not an expert in all things construction nonetheless, so with that caveat, here is what I think for what it is worth:
1) The view of "explosions" preceding the progressive collapse of the floors above look very slight to me. I imagine they could be glass failures owing to the compression of air under the falling masses above. They would naturally precede the debris and collapse. Intense fire (for example) can cause the kind of outward explosion of glass curtainwalls and while I know that may not be the case here, my point is air sufficiently compressed can cause a phenomenon of glass failure.
2) Building 7 is a true mystery.
3) The Pentagon crash and aftermath are suspicious and could be easily explained away IF the government would release the surveillence tapes they are known to have. The question of why they don't is the troublesome question. It is not like the Zapruder film--which did not show the killer. The question about what craft actually hit the Pentagon and how is it possible to do the odd damage that has already been documented could be addressed literally overnight if the tapes were released.
4) I don't buy that passengers were mysteriously substituted or given new identities or whatever---too many airplane victims and their families exist to make me think there is any mystery around crash victims.
5) That so many "hijackers" were identified readily after the event does not surprise me. That they were not correctly identified (even to this day) is what surprises me.
Tell me: do you feel safer now than 3 years ago?

I don't even care that it took Charlie Sheen for America to start waking up to the Bush administration's first crime.
Just watch the video evidence for yourself. And do some research on PNAC.
You know they lied to go to war in Iraq, destroying far more lives than were destroyed on 9/11. Do they look remorseful, or regret having done it? So why would you doubt they would pull off 9/11, which basically gave them 3 great, unprecedent goals.
1. Free reign to plunder the entire oil-rich region of the Middle East.
2. Expand executive branch powers to levels Nixon only dreamed of. Remember, these same guys (Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc.) have been after this for decades
3. Get free license to basically steal trillions of $$$ from taxpayers. Running up the deficit on no bid contracts, raising Military Industrial Complex profits, Big Oil profits, etc. Eisenhower warned us this could happen.

I disagree with my friend Bob (Cyteria). The issue isn't "How much does Charlie Sheen know about explosives?" it's "Why, given the gaping holes in the official version, does it take a Hollywood actor's opinion to draw mainstream news coverage?" This should have been front-page news years ago.
Rev. Griffin's talk at Madison had a powerful effect on me. I was a skeptic, too, before hearing the man. He's no crackpot and no fanatic, and he made a very powerful case that Bush and Cheney, at a minimum, allowed 9/11 to happen when they could have prevented it. The forensic evidence at the Pentagon and at Building 7 in New York are congruent with this postulate.

You know, people.... over the past 5 years, I've thought and researched a lot about this... about what really happened on 9/11.
We can speculate all we want. But research is the only way to really discover the truth... and I mean... HANDS ON type research. (Heck, we even have a man or woman with a Ph.D. in Physics among us here.)
The problem is, though... the conspirators had an excellent "cleaning crew" that took all the evidence to China for disposal.
We'll never figure out what really happened... even with Independant One, Brad Blog's resident Physicist, on our team... because they disposed of all the evidence.
Remember... these people had practice on JFK's assassination.
The difference is... with the JFK case... they will allow people of my generation to know what really happened when I reach my late 60's... long after anyone can do anything about it (remember the "Future Eyes Only" time capsule to be opened in about 35 years from now?)
But, with the 9/11 truth... they never left us even that courtesy.
Mistrust the 9/11 commission's version? Of Course! (After all, how much truth can you get from the likes of former US Senator Slade Gorton from here in WA State... who today is a member of the 9/11 commission.)

I think of him as a stubborn little two year old arguing at naptime. WE know he's tired, HE knows he's tired, but there is NO WAY he is EVER going to admit he needs a nap. We will NOT win by logic - he is just not interested in understanding facts, he only knows he wants what he wants and that's all that matters to him.
The best strategy is to trick him into being quiet (perhaps with a nice story) until nature takes its course and he falls asleep Once he's safely tucked in bed and no longer underfoot, the rest of us can quietly go about our work. When he wakes up, everything will have been taken care of by the responsible adults. Don't expect him to say thank you, or to even notice - just pat him on his little head and accept the fact that he simply doesn't have the ability or the desire to comprehend the world outside of his own little self-centered existence.

Manifest Destiny, Again?
When we stop striving for American Ideals we will crumble as a Nation. We knew that then but we need to be reminded once and a while like 9/11.
Manifest Destiny, Again?
No nation ever existed without some sense of national destiny or purpose.
Manifest Destiny --- a phrase used by US leaders and politicians in the 1840s to explain continental expansion by the United States --- revitalized a sense of "mission" or national destiny for Americans.
The people of the United States felt it was their mission to extend the "boundaries of freedom" to others by imparting their idealism and belief in democratic institutions to those who were capable of self-government. It excluded those people who were perceived as being incapable of self-government, such as Native American people and those of non-European origin.
John Osullivan 1839 said
Yes, we are the nation of progress, of individual freedom, of universal enfranchisement. Equality of rights is the cynosure of our union of States, the grand exemplar of the correlative equality of individuals; and while truth sheds its effulgence, we cannot retrograde, without dissolving the one and subverting the other. We must onward to the fulfilment of our mission --- to the entire development of the principle of our organization --- freedom of conscience, freedom of person, freedom of trade and business pursuits, universality of freedom and equality. This is our high destiny, and in nature's eternal, inevitable decree of cause and effect we must accomplish it. All this will be our future history, to establish on earth the moral dignity and salvation of man --- the immutable truth and beneficence of God. For this blessed mission to the nations of the world, which are shut out from the life-giving light of truth, has America been chosen; and her high example shall smite unto death the tyranny of kings, hierarchs, and oligarchs, and carry the glad tidings of peace and good will where myriads now endure an existence scarcely more enviable than that of beasts of the field. Who, then, can doubt that our country is destined to be the great nation of futurity?
Still sounds good today.

Freedom isn't something "forced down your throat", it's something you are "enlightend to". Believe it or not, Iraq today is a STEP BACKWARD in that regard. They are REMOVING enlightenment and going back to a Theocracy (which by it's very definition is the opposite of enlightenment given that you "just believe" without "fact" to back it up, and do what you're told by your religious leaders.. no thinking, just obeying). But, that's what THEY WANT. So, for all our dead soldiers, all the dead civilians, all the wasted money and effort.. they are walking AWAY from "what we want", and falling further behind than where they were (albeit they are taking that step backward willingly instead of being forced to step forward).

"No nation ever existed without some sense of national destiny or purpose."
I agree. Since 1992, it has been my "Manifest Destiny" for the government to provide health care for everyone. We are the only 1st world country in the whole world that doesn't provide at least some sort of voluntary health insurance or health care for everyone... on a single payor basis.
We almost had it too. But the forces opposing proper health care, housing, etc. for everyone [especially the poor and middle classes] want to amass these resources for themselves.
My point is... Manifest Destiny is whatever a country makes it out to be... something that is a common vision for most people.
Eradicating terrorism is a bit out of reach... unless we attack every country in the world, we'll never get rid of it.
Time to look inward though... and do what is doable... like my signature "hot button" theme... universal health care and universal housing for all who want it.
That is how I redefine "Manifest Destiny."

Hey, people. Americans are waking up. I've watched both Showbiz Tonight episodes in which they cover this story, and, believe it or not, they are going to cover it again today (3/24/06) at 5 pm and 11 pm eastern.
Three in a row!
The host of the show, A.J. Hammer, has been very respectful toward those of his guests who believe 9/11 was an inside job. He has not even once attempted to denigrate or dismiss them (including Alex Jones, last night's guest). In fact, one can almost sense that Hammer, at the very least, agrees that there is a lot more to the story than we have been told.
Anyway, here is one of the ways I know that average Americans have either begun to awaken to this story (or have been awake all along but have not had a "convenient" mainstream media outlet --- until now --- through which to voice their opinions): Vote at CNN Poll
As of this morning, 12,762 people (including myself) had voted. Of those 10,440 (82%) agree that the government has covered up the real events of 9/11, while only 2,322 (18%) disagree. Pretty decent numbers, eh? I can only imagine how high the numbers have gone since this morning. Very similar results were also tallied in an Anderson Cooper viewer poll a while back.
Seems like the "fringe" minority these days actually consists of the incurious neocon wingnut losers who are casting insults at the thinking readers here at BradBlog.
Ain't it great?
By the way, I encourage you all to follow the links above (either one will do) and cast your own votes.

Interesting link, Roger..
Cept.. how did the entire plane fold into a 16 foot hole? that's the story that we'd have to believe to accept that the plane was on the inside, but not outside.
Again, physics would have to be suspended to let a 100+ foot wingspan collapse and suck into a 16 foot hole.
Hmm.. and don't un-manned stealth planes have landing gear as well?.. interestingly, those are small enough to pretty much fit into a 16 foot hole, but not a 4 story, 100+ foot wide plane. *shrug* I'd have to see a demonstration to believe it, sorry.

Blubear and all others
We all need to take a step back. I was of the mind that there is a vast 9/11 conspiracy but now I'm not so sure. As much as I hate to admit it, my brother has pointed out a few things to me that go against the conspiracy theory of the attack on the Pentagon. I posted the link above in #101. There is defininely wreckage of an aircraft insde the Pentagons walls. It is quite possible that the plane was travelling at such a speed and loaded with so much fuel that little of it was left behind in large pieces. As much as I hate Bush, Cheney and the others in his group and those following them blindly, there is reasonable doubt to the conspiracy. It is much more likely that they allowed the atacks to happen than perpetrated it themselves. As far as the WTC is concerned, I saw a video of the second tower collapsing from a website that was posted here. The beginning of the collapse happened right at the point of the planes impact. If it were explosives, how did it start at that point? It seems to me that it was weakened enough at that point to give way, starting a chain reaction that, as the top floors fell, the weight increased with every impact from the floors above it. There are still questions to be answered not least of which is what they knew before the attacks and when they knew it and could they have stopped it before 9/11. But the idea that it was brought down by evil elements in our own government, and I do believe they exist, no longer seems likely to me. I don't want to admit this either, but my disgust at this administration and their obvious abuse of power has 'skewed' my perception of the event that started all this.

"There is defininely wreckage of an aircraft insde the Pentagons walls."
Which is consistent with a spy drone, in that something was flown into the Pentagon.
"It is quite possible that the plane was travelling at such a speed and loaded with so much fuel that little of it was left behind in large pieces"
Not exactly. The amount of fuel determines the size of the fireball, not the "strength" of the explosion. In fact, the lower the amount of fuel, the bigger the explosion because there's more vapor in the fuel tanks. More fuel = bigger fireball = smaller "boom" = more burning material... Less fuel = more vapor in the container = bigger 'boom' = less burning material. So, a fully loaded plane would make a huge fireball, but not as much of a boom. Also, you're talking about the tanks blowing.. that would pull the wings off, and parts of the midsection, but the nose and tail would not be very impacted from the explosion. The nose would be destroyed from hitting the building, and all that destruction would shed most of the energy. There WOULD be a significant part of the plane left OUT SIDE, period.
"It is much more likely that they allowed the atacks to happen than perpetrated it themselves"
Which is at a minimum treason, right? Yet, they are still in office. DESPITE the existence of memos that show they KNEW it was coming. Instead of the "whole truth" coming out, they gag Seibl Edmonds. Hmm.. And, I don't think it was just that they were negligent in letting it happen. They ALSO "at least" helped in that no fighters managed (for the first time in our history that I'm aware of) to intercept ANY of the 4 planes. Those planes were intentionally "occupied" and sent "the wrong way".
"The beginning of the collapse happened right at the point of the planes impact."
And if you watch CLOSELY, you'll see that it was FALLING OVER, not down. Just as it started to "fall over", it immidiately "changes direction" and goes "straight down". The only way that can happen is if the part that was still attached (the pivot point) started dropping as well. That is, the top looked to star to fall over (slowly) as some of the steel gave way (yet, the fuel wasn't hot enough to do that, which makes one wonder), but then the "in tact" part fell away "faster" (freefall speed) and down and pulled the "tipping" down instead. It's hard to explain like this, but from what I saw on some other videos, the tower definately looked "dropped" under the falling top..
"If it were explosives, how did it start at that point?"
Explosives to "drop the building" wouldn't have had an effect on the top starting to fall over. But, if the entire building was "rigged" for demo, you can fire off any bit you want at any time you want. It doesn't take a genious to understand that you need to make that first bit start moving first when you know people are watching. It could -easily- have been adjusted during that hour of chaos to have charges on that floor go first. And, if I recall (I'd have to track down those vids again), the floor UNDER the "hole" collapsed first on one tower.. then the leaning of the top on the other. Which could -also- be explained if some of the "charges" (and some have said it was a non-explosive material that just gets super hot) near the hole had gone off during the collision and weakened more of the structure (that is, the demo stuff caused more damage than the plane). Possible, is all I'm saying.. since no one was able to examine the debri.
Also, on one video I watched, BOTH planes had a bright flash just as they hit the building. Well, the instant "before" they hit.. almost like a missle was hitting the building just as the plane did (there would be NOTHING that could cause an "explosion" in the front of the planes.. you only get to that when you get to the fuel and engines...). If the planes were drones and did have missles on them to make sure they got maximum penetration, that could easily account for the extra "damage" that allowed the tower to "start falling over".
"It seems to me that it was weakened enough at that point to give way, starting a chain reaction that, as the top floors fell, the weight increased with every impact from the floors above it."
Yes, and the "weakness" of that area doesn't seem consistent with a plane collision.. And, the "pancaking" theory doens't hold because it would have taken 2.5 more seconds than it did. That is, the upper floors would have had to break free all the connections of the floor it was landing on. That sheds energy. The time lost from the shedding of the energy for the first few dozen floors has been calculated to about 2.5 seconds.. after that point, there would be so much mass moving so fast that the "structural integrity" of the lower levels would be comprimised almost instantly.. at -that- point, freefall would start. The towers (both, in an amazing defiance of physics and statistics) fell AT freefall speed, not "2 seconds longer", which is REQUIRED for the pancake theory to hold (or so I've read by people who've run the numbers).
"There are still questions to be answered . . . "
Yet, interestingly, the Administration had all the materials sent of for immidiate destruction.. Hmm.. any tests that could have been done on the materials to determine if they were up to code, or had been tampered with, or if there were remnants of bombs/demo devices, were precluded and are now impossible. Sounds fisy to me. If they were only "complicit" by letting it happen, then why hide/destroy all the rubble? Also, I"ve heard that all the steel beams were a neat X feet long.. Very little cutting needed to be done to load up all the steel on trucks to ship it out. Personall, I need to read more on that, but it seems kind of suspicious that all the support beams just happen to break into truck sized bits.. on both towers.. and the core beams didn't even withstand the pancaking, which they seem should have to a degree.
The behaviors of this administration have ensured the truth never comes out about Sept. 11, 2001. Couple that with the fact that they are STILL using it to justify their illegal invasion of Iraq and you have some pretty serious doubts about the official story. Combine all that with PNAC and their need for "a new pearl harbor" to kick things off, and you get a very ugly picture that we'll never be able to sort out because all the facts and information and evidence has been tainted/destroyed. And, it's not like this is beyond our government.. they have done some pretty shitty things in our past that we know of, and were planning things that were pretty bad (that seemingly didn't come to pass).
Make no mistake, we're dealing with psychos here. And it's not just possible, but probable that they were involved in Sept. 11, 2001 in more ways than just being complicit.

If you watch this video, you'll see that our government came to the absurd conslusion that they don't know how WTC-7 fell down implosion style, but owner Larry Silverstein said WTC-7 was "pulled" with knowledge of the NYC police/firemen/etc... Just for this one discrepancy alone, there should be an investigation, but there are 100 legitimate questions about 9/11 by experts that have been suppressed or not answered.
No skyscraper EVER fell due to fire before or after 9/11, and 3 fell implosion style on the same day. A skyscraper in Madrid was on fire top to bottom for days and did not fall, it shows in this video.

Personally I'm starting to believe that the real truth lies somewhere in the middle of all of this.
We know the US government had many warnings, and that they failed to act upon them to prevent the attacks from happening. We have way too much evidence in testimony, classified documents, and memos for anyone, even Bush, to plausibly deny (the key word being "plausibly")
WHY they failed to act is another question - whether it was total incompetence on the part of upper level officials (including George W. Bush), in which case do we really want these people running the country anyway?
..or whether they saw the coming attacks as the perfect "Pearl Harbor" opportunity to implement their own agenda spelled out in the Project for a New American Century (Go to www.newamericancentury.org - and pay particular attention to the "letters" tab, particularly the signatures on the letter to Bill Clinton back in the late 90's. Any of those names look familiar?)
I have to wonder if, knowing the plan was already made, some enterprising people might have decided to 'help it along' - to completely destroy the towers by explosives if the planes didn't cause enough damage.
The most telling part of all of it to me was the reaction of the President afterward. If the attacks were totally unexpected, even if HE didn't know what to do (he did sort of have that doe in the headlights look), the Secret Service would have IMMEDIATELY moved him to a secure location. The video clip of him sitting totally calm for seven minutes after being told of the attacks should have clued EVERYONE in to the fact that something wasn't quite right about the story we were being fed. (And we won't even go into his comment about seeing the second plane hit the building)
As far as the 'plane' that went into the Pentagon - as someone said in earlier remarks, all they'd have to do to prove the story they fed us is real is to release the video tapes. Anyone able to come up with a good reason why they won't?
No one's mentioned the fourth plane here (unless I missed it), but Cheney at one point said that Bush had ordered any remaining planes shot down once the WTC was hit - he later said he didn't have to give the order. There are other anomolies I won't go into about here, but you can read at http://www.adequacy.org/...001.10.21.153123.26.html and several other places and see for yourself which story sounds most plausible.
Again, apply Occam's razor - that theory which requires the fewest leaps of logic is probably the right one.
Personally it was Dr David Griffith's presentation that hammered in the last nail for me, but hey, ya know, if it takes a celebrity to bring the questions into focus for the rest of America, then so be it. (I really miss my hero, Carl Sagan, these days - wonder what he'd have made of all of this.)
There's just too much that doesn't add up. I think we deserve some answers.

Chuck, my point exactly. At a minimum, to my accounting, the Admin attacked the Pentagon, not terrorists. The story of a 757 hitting it is too bullshit, there's no physical evidence to support that assertion.
The scary bit is, the fighters that were diverted over the ocean might have been blowing up the passenger liners. Someone postulated that they could have signaled the pilots of the liners to head out to sea because they were being hijacked.. then fighter pilots could have been told those planes had hijackers on board and needed to be shot down. All this could have happened with NO HIJACKERS AT ALL. Then the government could have flown drones (with missle launchers and other structure weakening materials as cargo) into the towers. Airliners gone, people dead, families saying "what, are you nuts? Flight 77 IS GONE! of course it hit the Pentagon!".. while it slowly sinks to the bottom of the ocean..
Nothing about the Pentagon adds up. All the tower materials were hurried off with no inspection.. and tower 7 was not hit, but fell anyway (and was owned by the guy that owned the other 2 towers).
Stinky, no matter how you look at it.

During the months of July and August 2001, Alex Jones ran a campaign which he dubbed 'Expose the Government Terrorists' on both his TV and radio shows. He encouraged people to call the White House and tell them not to go ahead and launched the staged terror attack that would become the foundation of their push for martial law.
On Wednesday July 25th 2001, during a taping of Alex's local cable access TV show in Austin, Texas, he elaborated on how the Globalists were set to use their operative Osama bin Laden and that the preparations for a terror attack were in their final stages.
Alex didn't have a crystal ball, he merely studied the elite's propaganda and was able to connect the dots and make a prediction that would materialize on September 11, 2001.

Big Dan, the one difference is that the WTCs had structural damage in addition to the fires. The planes actually ripped out some of the supporting steel when they hit.
Though, the collapse from that would NOT be consistent with a "straight down pancake effect" anyway..
I still don't buy that "just the planes" would have been enough to drop both buildings like that. Drop the top off, and rip off X floors below the damage when the tops "fell over", sure, but neither collision was "on center", nor were they "all the way through consistently".. since you'd have to pretty much be near center and "all the way through" (even damage across the entire width of the building) to have a "pancake" that went "straight down", it makes the official excuse (while possible under certian circumstances, perhaps) even less plausable.. at least in my mind.
Gravity and Physics don't lie. They can't be cheated yet either.

If they'd pancaked, it would have taken a LOT longer for them to come all the way down. They each took about 10 seconds to drop, when freefall speed would have been 9.2 seconds. If they had pancaked, each succeeding floor would have added x amount of time to the collapse. It would have taken at least twice as long, probably much longer, and not straight into their footprints, and there would have been chunks of concrete instead of POWDER. No way could a pancake collapse, even bending the laws of physics for them to have been brought straight down, have left molten steel at the bases of the towers, and building 7, WEEKS after 9/11. That had to be the chemical reaction continuing from explosives. Brother Marvin was in charge of WTC security, guys.

In 1962 the Joint Chiefs of Staff were going to paint a plane like a commercial airliner and swap it with a real one. Then they were gonna shoot it down and blame Castro for it. Then go to war against Cuba using this fake terrorism.
I think maybe they finally got around to it on Sept 11, 2001

Ask yourself simple questions why your don't see this stuff on The mainstream media. Watch The News. Then ask yourself why will they not report on this story and when they do all they can do is make fun of a his life and make it seem like non sense.
Then Do a search of detention camps with that company who gets alot of contracts with the gov.
Then question why there are 600 of these in the US.
and what are the reasons for these and why doesn't the media report on these to explain what they would be used for.
Now watch your news again look right now who is protest in the us against labor laws. Ask yourself how come nothing has been done about this till it got too far out of hand.
Now before you call me crazy realize what your cable media channels are reporting about the war and how they are reporting it one channel in mind fox. watch carefully how they distort the truth about lets say foreign politics.
And watch the stories of the next epidemic called the bird flu.
Now put all these together and look where your going to spend your next summer vacation.
now look at all the events that proceeded the day.
Now If you can remember those famous words I forget who said them
If your not with us your against us
now read the new patriot act.
now watch the the news and realize hey wait a minute I never read this before but I think Maybe someone has.....what's this crazy sentator from wis talkin about. what a jerk he just wants to be president. Gol' Darn Democrats. did he say sensor
Say to yourself I wonder what are the top 100 searches on the internet I'll just take a look. Wow hot babes lol Shannon Elizabeth what a babe maybe I'll just sidetrack myself with the hot babe. Oh wait what heck is this Charlie Sheen. Oh ok I'll just play along so I can prove that crazy nut wrong.
Wow if most of the public is searching this up isn't it news why do they not report it. Ok I'll click on a link to see what they say. Yep just as I thought another sex crazed coke head with problem I was right all the while.
Wow that was a relief now I can go back to my happy life.
Point here IF YOU DON"T BELIEVE IN THEY GUY read up on the subect yourself.
This may seem like a joke and others would want you believe it is a joke.
Charlie isn't the guy who made up the consiracy he just a guy who read up on the stuff. And like others had doubts about the official story. When a person or person give you the run around does it not make you question if they are honest. Wouldn't you want the truth about stuff that has an Impact you.
I may make a joke of it and not give you striaght answers on this it up to you to research it. Try to follow my joke set by step. humor yourself.
I really doesn't take a genius to figure this out.

The psyops part of 911 has caught my interest. One reason for that is the massive effort psyops has become (link here).
It is all out in the open:
"The Air Force’s Concept of Operations for Information Operations, 6 February 2004, organizes all the facets of information operations into three categories: network-warfare operations, electronic-warfare operations, and influence operations (which include PSYOP). Combining PSYOP, whether offensive or defensive, with electronic-warfare and network-warfare operations can greatly enhance its effectiveness. The Air Force is taking a hard look at the realm of PSYOP and influence operations to assure that its information-operations planners know how to coordinate with the joint PSYOP task force during both planning and execution" (link here, bold added).
If a massive inside job happens anywhere, such as a traitorous 911, there will always be massive psyops to assist in covering up the real scenario. Diversion, obfuscation, and disinformation.
I have read a lot of the posts here, and there is clear evidence that the psyops are getting into the thinking of those who suspect a conspiracy.
Many statements here are a combination of fact and fiction, which is called grey-ops. Paid government agents pose as civilians, experts, or folk hero types to skew the picture.
One good thing is that those on the inside are also working for the people. And they leak info from time to time and we then have another clue.

For those of you who do not think that the Bush/PNAC administration could have conducted a coup by rigging elections and you do not think an atrocity like 9/11 could contain the fingerprints of insiders, read your history books.

Only months after they came to power, the United States experienced a new Pearl Harbor. That has never been publicized or explained as anything other than mere coincidence...."

Alex Jones, in JULY 2001, predicts a terrorist attack on US Soil and Bin Laden being blamed for it...
Here is the Video Link
Alex Jones was saying two months before the 9/11 attacks that the globalist elite were going to attack the city of New York and blame it on CIA asset Osama bin Laden. Alex Jones had a campaign in July into September 2001 asking people to call the White House and Congress to tell them that we know that the U.S. government is planning to carry out terrorist attacks in order to blame CIA asset Osama bin Laden, and Alex called this campaign "Operation Expose the Government Terrorists."

Excellent to see this discussion here on BradBlog. It's about time the progressive blogs and media take 9/11 truth seriously. Just scanning the comments here gives me hope that people are waking up to our TRUE nightmare: that the real terrorists are WITHIN our government. And, of course it's not the entire government --- but Cheney and Rumsfeld in particular were likely involved. How else to explain the stand-down orders and the failure of NORAD?
You people who think we're nut-jobs to question the official story have a lot of waking up to do. We're the true patriots and we're seeing through the lies --- ALL of the lies, not just the WMD, etc.
The evidence is overwhelmingly AGAINST the account fed to us by BushCo and the corporate media. If you categorically refuse to look at the evidence (as presented in numerous films, books, and web sites), you are a victim of BushCo. Wake up now. Watch Loose Change Second Edition on google videos. Read the books by David Ray Griffin and Michael Ruppert. Watch Barry Zwicker's "The Great Conspiracy" on google videos. Read 911blogger.com and start taking the red pill.... if you dare.... and become a true patriot.

It is encouraging to see people ask about PNAC and admit that they don't know what it is. Google "Project For The New American Century", its an official US government website and there is a section written in public view about needing "A New Pearl Harbour" in order to have their endless war on terror, and it was written up, posted and planned BEFORE 9/11. Can someone paste the quote in here for those who asked about PNAC and the direct link to it?

Agreed --- and, I would add to that list: Democratic Underground, Truthout, and Common Dreams. They're valuable sites in many ways, but their owners are TERRIFIED of being associated with 9/11 truth. Just goes to show how successfully BushCo's "you're either with us, or against us" has been, even within the progressive/alternative media. I used to support Truthout, but withdrew my support because of their lack of 9/11 coverage. Very disappointing.
W.R. Pitt and a few others have done a shallow job on 9/11 --- Pitt responded to my inquiry at truthout's forum (back when he used to run it) that 9/11 truth people are essentially beligerent and that he has friends in DC who witnessed the plane that hit the Pentagon.... He basically said that he doesn't buy any alternative theories.
There's a term for people on the left (like Michael Moore) who deny 9/11 truth: LEFT GATEKEEPERS.
And, as an ancillary, there's an excellent essay I read a few days ago over at Michael Ruppert's site FTW which talks about the problems with people on the left who want to "take back America."
Killing Hope, Enlivening Options
by Carolyn Baker, Ph.D.
As Bush’s poll ratings continue plummeting, as the stench of Washington’s cesspool of corruption wafts across the nation, and as one courageous Senator, Russ Feingold, introduced censure of the President, I continue witnessing the clueless left clutching teddy bears and hoping that somehow, some way, the 2008 elections offer the promise of “taking back America,” a phrase that I have come to loathe in the last five years as the nation sinks more blatantly and precariously into the quicksand of fascism. Although I have long ago said my good-byes to “hope,” I cautiously embrace options, and in the following essay, I intend to clarify the difference between the two and enumerate a few of the options I have come to believe are available to those who clearly recognize that we are living in a fascist empire locked into the Terminal Triangle of Peak Oil, global climate change, and planetary economic meltdown.

Operation NORTHWOODS - Robot airliners with fake passenger lists of CIA agents blown up by remote control, hiring enemy soldiers to attack US military bases, assassinations and bombings in Washington DC, all perped by the US Government, under treasonous orders from the White House

London Daily Mail - 9/11 ON TRIAL - The plot by America’s military bosses was devilish in both design and intent – to fabricate an outrage against innocent civilians, fool the world and provide a pretext for war. In the pentagon, a top secret team drew up a plan to simultaneously send up two airliners painted and numbered exactly the same, one from a civil airport in America, the other from a secret military airbase nearby. The one from the airport would have military personnel on board who had checked in as ordinary passengers under false names. The one from the airbase would be an empty drone, a remote-controlled unmanned aircraft. Somewhere along their joint flight paths, the passenger-carrying plane would drop below radar height, and disappear, landing back at the airbase and unloading its occupants in secret. Meanwhile, the drone would have taken up the other plane’s designated course. High over the island of Cuba, it would be exploded in mid-air after broadcasting an international distress call that it was under attack from enemy fighters. The world would be told that a plane load of blameless American holidaymakers had been deliberately shot down by Fidel Castro’s Communists – and that the US had no choice but to declare war and topple his regime. This ‘agent provocateur’ plan – code named OPERATION NORTHWOODS and revealed in official archives – dates from 1962 when the Cold War was at its height. The Northwoods plan is crucial to the argument presented in a hugely provocative – many would say fantastical – yet, at times, genuinely disturbing new analysis of 9/11.
"The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it. I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons. I have been living in the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan and following its leaders' rules. The current leader does not allow me to exercise such operations."

9/11 IS A MIND GAME, DON'T BE FOOLED AGAIN!
Though it may be gratifying to finally hear 9/11 issues from a celebrity like Charlie Sheen presented on a prominent news outlet like CNN, everyone should be very cautious about recent developments. We must realize that the people responsible for the 9/11 attacks, are the same people who killed JFK, completely getting away with it! These folks are very clever people and are past masters at manipulating and fooling us. Don't think for one minute that all this 9/11 stuff just suddenly came out all by itself! This could very well be their way of trying to preempt a truly independent, popular 9/11 movement from taking hold in this country. This could also be a way to harness our energy and direct it into meaningless pursuits.
Please note that Sheen and others are calling for a "new investigation" of 9/11. This is exactly how they handled the JFK case. In fact after many years of stonewalling, Congress actually did open a new JFK investigation, yet few people today even remember it! These criminals are not about to open a new 9/11 investigation any time soon. So as long as people are led off down that rabbit trail, it’s better for them! Far more important than a new investigation of 9/11, is for as many Americans as possible, to take this opportunity to take advantage of the mountain of information uncovered by independent 9/11 investigators and do their own personal investigations of 9/11! Only in this way will enough of us come to realize who our true enemies are, and just how absurd the government's official 9/11 story really is! Due to the rigid censorship practiced by the mainstream media, Americans today are handicapped with pandemic ignorance! Few people have any clue of what's really going on here, or abroad. For this reason, we've been given a completely ridiculous explanation for 9/11, which they slipped past us, due to our tendency to accept whatever we hear from official sources without question. When you start looking at this stuff with a critical eye, it completely falls apart! The only people, who won't see this, are those who've been hopelessly brainwashed and don't want to know the truth! An information war is now raging to keep us in the dark, and brainwashed citizens are collateral damage!
Government disinformation would have us believe that 9/11 can't be understood unless one has a PHD in engineering or something, nothing could be further from the truth! The people that cracked this case on 9/12/2001 were basically concerned citizens who refused to buy a ridiculous official government account of 9/11. They took the mostly suppressed facts of 9/11 and compared them to what the government was saying. The government's official 9/11 alibi evaporated in the process! For nearly five years they've been saying what Charlie Sheen recently repeated on CNN! In an effort to bring the truth to the American people, they've been roundly ridiculed and ignored for their efforts. Their groundbreaking research is the foundation of this current eruption of 9/11 truth! All that's needed to understand that the official 9/11 story is a lie is common sense, and the will to examine the suppressed facts of 9/11 objectively. It’s that simple. The fraudulent official 9/11 story is completely destroyed when it’s compared to the actual facts of the case.
Government hoaxes like 9/11 have been perpetrated against the American people for decades and it's high time that we came to grips with this reality. Over many years, authoritative independent research has been done, which expose the Federal Reserve, the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, Vietnam, The Cold War, JFK, The War on Drugs, OKC, 9/11, and The War on Terror to be world class hoaxes! These are but some of the more prominent hoaxes perpetrated by the same cabal of foreign and domestic special interests that control our nation via corrupt Washington politicians and bureaucrats. Americans need to understand this ASAP, and realize that 9/11 is not an isolated incident, but just the most recent, in a long line of audacious atrocities and hoaxes that have been used to alter the destiny of the U.S., directly leading us to the mess we're in today!
We're plagued by a very profound and diabolical conspiracy that goes back at least three centuries, targeting all western nations with special hatred for the U.S! This nation is right now, facing its most serious challenge, since the civil war! Don't get caught holding your breath for a new 9/11 investigation. Instead get up to speed on the truth which has been diligently hidden from you by the government/media complex. This explosive information has fortunately been uncovered by brilliant independent researchers over many years. Don't let their labors be in vain! Get to know our real enemies! By all means arm yourselves with the only knowledge that will enable you to become a truly informed, citizen "info warrior", in the information war now being waged against us! Armed with the proper understanding, you'll understand why the mainstream media is public enemy Numero Uno and should never be trusted! You'll also understand why it’s imperative that we all do our part to cast out the corrupt cabal of traitors and scoundrels called the Democrat and Republican parties! These so called "Americans" have done so much down through the years, to make hoaxes like 9/11 possible! The following links should get you started on the difficult road to becoming firmly established in the truth:

I wish it were that simple. There will only be a difference between JFK and 9/11, if enough of us using available resources, are actually wise enough to rise to this challenge by overcoming our crippling ignorance to unite against our common enemies. It certainly can be done, but there's still a big gap between gaining knowledge, and acting upon that knowledge in sufficient numbers. Our enemies have long ruled over us, via control of politicians and the mainstream media. We as a nation have so far shown little inclination to think for ourselves, or act on our own. We therefore aid and abet, our worst enemies. We can no longer afford to be mere pawns in the game that's being played at our expense. This very high stakes game, has now moved into 'sudden death overtime'.

Dredd's thinking is certainly in the right place. Its really important for as many of us as possible, to clearly understand the nature of the enemy we face. This can not be emphasized too much. On the other hand, its also important that we realize how we've been our own worst enemies in the political sense. Bush, Kerry, and their ilk, have been put into office by the unthinking actions of otherwise well-meaning citizens, following party leaders, media pundits, and entrenched bad habits!
With the help of 9/11 truth, our political power could be united and turned against such criminals, instead of being rigidly bound in their service. If we take 9/11 as a catalyst for casting off our Democrat vs Republican, left vs right, and liberal vs conservative mindset, we could actually began to turn our nation around. The truth of 9/11 calls for a revolution in America, this revolution like the 9/11 psyop directed against us, must take place in the minds of each freedom loving American.

Have you ever cut structural steel ? Let me tell you, you have to heat the hell out of the edge of the steel a while AT 3 TIMES THE TEMP OF JET FUEL BEFORE IT WILL GET CHERRY RED BEFORE YOU PULL THE "CUT" TRIGGER !!! Then you'd better move slow or you cut will stop because the steel is NOT HOT ENOUGH !! With that said, you explain MOLTEN STEEL in the subfloors of the WTC and I'll jump on your bandwagon !!! I'm not figuring on having to brush up on my jumping skills because required temperature is a must to get a certain condition in melting steel, that's simple facts.

Let me add another interesting question to this discussion. Lawyers and 911 families watching the Moussaoui trial have begun to ask questions:
"Yet Moussaoui did not participate in the attacks nor --- even by the government's version of events --- did he organize, plan or fund them. A bit player at most, he was already in U.S. custody on immigration charges by September 11.
While the 9/11 families are left with this rather pale facsimile of justice, others far more implicated in the September 11 attacks have been kept away from any court. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, whom the 9/11 Commission called the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks, is being held in secret CIA detention, as is Ramzi bin al-Shibh, accused of being the operation's paymaster.
The scandal of the Moussaoui prosecution is that it is the September 11 trial by default. The men who truly merit prosecution for the 9/11 attacks, if the accusations against them are true, are escaping justice" (link here).
Why, when the Bush admin has in custody the person they claim is the 911 architect, would they not prosecute them instead of wannabe Moussaoui?
Could it be that they are being held because if they told their stories it would also add to the belief that the 911 Commission Report seems to be bogus?

You said "exactly why there should be a public debate" on these 911 issues. I agree.
And I pose the question why did they not do this in the Moussaoui trial in my post #191 to Doc.
We must wade thru all of it, remembering as I said in post #138, that psyops, greyops, whiteops, and blackops were planned in advance if there was an inside job.
We should have had the largest investigation in history by the greatest forensic scientists. Instead we had a committee of wannabe sleuths who were handled completely by the psyops folk.

I was so irate when I first heard of the 9/11 conspiracy, or at least that the Bush Administration knew about it ahead of time & let it happen, that I called the FBI in Springfield.
Yes, I did.
I gave my name & told them my concerns & I asked them to investigate.
They listened & said, "Thank you" & hung up.
I figured they wouldn't do anything, except get a good laugh, but I did my duty as a citizen in good faith by reporting it to them. I did my part. If everybody called them with their concerns it would be hard to ignore.
Let's not forget, they ARE one of the major agencies that we pay taxes for, that has the job of protecting us from events like 9/11. The FBI SHOULD have stopped 9/11 before it happened but failed in their duty to protect America.
It's like "dumb & dumber"--the way the FBI & the CIA refuse to share information with each other.
Hey! You're supposed to be working TOGETHER to protect us---dim wits!
When you see just how poorly our agencies are run & just how stupid they act---I mean, hiding info from each other to "win" some kind of espionage game in their heads--while the country is the loser of their "game"--it's very frightening & disheartening.

I think we all knew on 9/11; we just were too horrified to think it. That was a direct assault on the intersection of patriotism and rational thinking. When one threatens the other, sense very often loses. I knew it as I saw it, but made myself keep an open mind for as long as I could. THAT was unpatriotic of me. Not wanting to believe something this horrific to the exclusion of ones own understanding of the laws of physics ends up contributing to everything that follows from it. Nobody wants our reality to be this radically changed. To admit it means unacceptable change.
Problem is: The unacceptable change has HAPPENED. If we don't face it, how are we going to FIX it?

Why do you think they kept changing there story and not release any evidence and did the total opposite, its because they are involved.
THe usa went to iraq in the first place based on a lie in 1990. In October, 1990, a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl, identified only as Nayirah, appeared in Washington before the House of Representatives' Human Rights Caucus. She testified that Iraqi soldiers who had invaded Kuwait on August 2nd tore hundreds of babies from hospital incubators and killed them.
Bush quoted Nayirah at every opportunity. Six times in one month he referred to "312 premature babies at Kuwait City's maternity hospital who died after Iraqi soldiers stole their incubators and left the infants on the floor,"(1) and of "babies pulled from incubators and scattered like firewood across the floor
There was no incubators! Bush Lied! just like his bastard son.

Sheen Challenge to Media
I dare you to print this email in it's entirety ...
Video From Charlie Sheen's brave first interview on the Alex Jones Show:
Or Listen to the Interview Here
The mere fact that you did a cut and paste job of the slanderous and idiotic Marine Hyde London Journal piece, speaks volumes about your credibility as a major media entity.
Like so many other mainstream outlets, domestically and abroad, no attention whatsoever is given to the questions I raise or the evidence that stimulated those very questions.
Instead, low-brow idiotic hit pieces are spewed forth in an effort to sway the readers' opinion of the messenger while blatantly disregarding any of the potentially valuable content of the story. It's transparent sandbox propaganda as dated and cheap as the paper it's printed on.
Do a little research on Building Seven. Building Seven lives at the epicenter of my entire debate. Prove yourself worthy of genuine investigative journalism. Look at the video evidence.
Observe the same data I have. Submit a formal request to the Pentagon or the DOD to release video PROOF that flight 77 did exactly as they claim. You will be stonewalled. You will be dismissed unconditionally. If there is nothing to hide - why are they hiding it?
To avoid any confusion - I reiterate:
Building Seven - Pentagon video documentation.
If any portion, or portions of this text is any way deleted or manipulated, you will only confirm what myself and countless others have suspected all along: Media complicity with no interest in the truth.
A CNN poll at the time of this writing currently sits at 84 percent IN SUPPORT of my views.
Say what you must about me - it means nothing.
Yet, if you continue to overlook the hard questions and physical evidence regarding 9/11 - you only confirm what so many of us "Conspiracy Idiots" have suspected all along - The Official Report is, at best, an insulting work of FICTION.

did i mention to you that i AM one of those people in the applied sciences? i thought i did, maybe you are just having a hard time getting it because i used to many big words.
when a building like the WTC towers is constructed they build it with eventual demolition in mind. that way, when and if it needs to come down it doesnt just topple over 5 city blocks, it comes down nice and neat in a straight line from top to bottom. simple physics and some knowledge of materials and deformable solids and some plain old common sense, jackass.
the looney conspiracy theories propagated by coke heads should be ignored, even if they have a degree. we all saw it happen on live tv, there were no weird conspiracies that included every single local, nationwide, and international news organization. and, you have to admit, it is a little easier to believe that some guys with box cutters could take over a bunch of unarmed civilians than it would be to believe the coverage was manipulated while filming.
sorry guys, i get a little testy over this issue. i feel it is disrespectful of the dead. to be be making these idiotic science fiction stories simultaneously saying our administration is so stupid they cant tie their shoes without help and criminal masterminds bent on world domination mentally and intellectually capable of such an atrocity is stupendously moronic. you cant have it both ways guys.

ive spoken with many people who are technically skeptical of everything on forums- i was openly skeptacle for about the last 6 months-
my forays into understanding economics- markets, trade, debt buying has enlightend me to the circustance that niggled at the back of my head why someone could murder 3000 lives.
i looked at the evidence again- streamed loose change 2nd edit, and the 911 eyewitness video (actual name) plus the footage and media accounts on the street in 9/11 revisited, which also has the world experts give their views on what happened- the science community, the engineering and financial- all people who were until talking well renound and seen as experts in their fields.
now that i believe that 9/11 was "carried out" my brain doesnt want to believe any of this is true- i'm trying to find discrepancies in the evidence as presented- ive found some but others are just undeniable and common sence- its 9/11 all over again for me and its like all those people have died twice..
i just want to say the actions on the US government speak more than worse and the the bush admin has hijacked the government away from congress and the senate- and are seeking unlimited power to carry out their world agenda- and protecting the dollar are the leading currency.
this is no ordinary conspiracy- substantial amounts of people- even the experts believe america has been hijacked thousands perhaps at this point- and most of them in the last 4 days- in 4 days this issue has become the most shouted story on shoutwire.
if you can see people minds changing about the events- even hardened skeptics you NEED to do yourself a favour like so many people are saying and WATCH the videos- they are all over the internet and are free.

Then go to war against Cuba using this fake terrorism.

Guns & Butter - Wednesday 1-2p - KPFA 94.1fm, Berkeley CA
Explosive Testimony: The 911 Oral Histories - Host Bonnie Faulkner interviews author and theologian, Dr. David Ray Griffin.
As the result of a lawsuit brought by the New York Times and several families of 911 victims, the New York Court of Appeals ordered the city to release hundreds of oral histories of 911 witnesses. These witness testimonies were originally gathered shortly after September 11th on the order of Thomas Von Essen, the City Fire Commissioner, who said he wanted to preserve these accounts before they became reshaped by a collective memory. In these oral histories, Firefighters and Emergency Medical Workers recount their experiences of that day, including riveting descriptions of explosions seen, felt and heard in the WTC towers on 9/11. Descriptions are consistent with pre-positioned explosives and controlled demolition, NOT with progressive collapse due to melted steel and "pancaking" floors.
You can read Dr. David Ray Griffin's most recent article here:
Explosive Testimony: Revelations about the Twin Towers in the 9/11 Oral Histories

Why do people get so upset when someone opens their mouth? Especially if they're famous? What if YOU had some serious thoughts or questions to voice and could not be heard? Then let's say you suddenly found yourself famous. Would you think "Oh, I'm famous now. I guess I gotta shut up. I'm now disqualified to speak up"? Of course not! ANYONE can voice their opinion and I wholeheartedly recommend it! If you got some fame, why not use it? You don't have to take anyone's opinions as gospel, but there's no need to disqualify anybody from asking questions. It's usually known people who become leaders, simply because they have an advantage-the media listens. If they'd listen to you, you'd speak up too. 3 1/2 men sucks, but GO CHARLIE! I'd do the same if I could.

Many here have posted links that show FEMA removed and destroyed much evidence. The 47 verticle steel beams that made up the central core would have been dispositive as to cutter explosives.
Also the official story was that the black boxes on the two jets (4 total) were not found, however, there is some evidence that they did find them and have hidden or destroyed them.

Dredd, #246, Yep. There may be enough testimony about the convenient 30' lengths to pretty much show cutter explosives HAD to be responsible, or maybe there are pictures that would do as well.
The conflicting stories on the black boxes is rough because I can't figure out how to make them be produced. Some suggest the planes were rigged to fly into the Trade Towers and the ocean, just taking over from the helpless pilots at a certain point, using missiles for the Pentagon and Pennsylvania "crashes", and they might well have removed the black boxes before the flights, anyway. That's what I would have done if I suddenly turned evil enough to want to pull it off.
I have a friend who insists that if these hijackers actually got on the planes we would have video of each and every one of them boarding, and nobody's ever seen that. Even if they did get on the planes, though, that still doesn't countermand the laws of physics. The WTC buildings were definitely pulled. NO other explanation.

Why did the towers fall so fast?
They were built like tubes. Very strong, but very little internal weight bearing surfaces, the strength of the building mainly lied in the outside structure. This is good because the building can be erected taller with less material used, but, as we all have seen, if part of the structure fails it compromises the entire structure. In other words, if the 150th floor collapses, the first floor is compromised as well. Need an example? If you are careful, you can stand on an aluminum soda can and it will sustain your weight indefinitely. However, have someone touch the side of the can and it will immediately collapse (have them use a stick unless you don’t like them). Another example? Cannondale and Klein bicycles were sued a few years ago because their “large diameter thin walled” tubing bikes were failing. The problem was not that the bikes were not able to handle the forces involved, but that they were unable to handle those forces after the bike was dropped just once and the tubes were dented. Not a problem on conventional frames. The design has since been changed. The designers of the buildings received immense criticism after the buildings came down because other buildings made the conventional way might have withstood this kind of event, but those buildings had no chance.
Believe it or not, they were designed to take a hit from an aircraft. This is because they were so tall that in low visibility situations (fog) they may be struck. However, planes made when the buildings were, were not as big as the planes used. This may be considered a design flaw or lack of foresight, but I cannot judge that.
What happened to building 7?
Well, buildings are designed to be buildings, not dams. The immense weight of the debris weakened the structure in a horizontal direction that the building was not designed to take. You may recall the rest of the complex needed to be inspected and evaluated for months before they could be used again, and even at first it was assumed many more of them might have to be demolished because of structural damage.
Doug, you should stop critiquing grammar, spelling, and punctuation. This is a blog, not an English paper for crying out loud, and you must realize how stupid you look for saying such things when clearly you have nothing else to contribute. But if you must be heard and that is all you got, than hell, why not?
And Big Dan, I am a student of the applied sciences. If you see me telling people that I am an expert on anything else, then yes, I am trolling. Like a liberal jackass I once spoke to who was a self described “expert” in criminology, Catholicism, Mormonism, various fighting styles, and of course politics. He claimed to have “studied” these subjects each at length for decades, and much more he had yet to divulge. Except for the fact that he holds exactly zero degrees in anything, and is not even in the process of attaining one at all, it might have been doubtful he had done so much. But his lack of cred means he read some crap somewhere and that is what he has. Every post he made was trolling.

Popeye: Your insurance sales must have taught you how to BS your way into getting what you want. BUILDING DESIGN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FREEFALL SPEED OF THE COLLAPSES. Freefall speed means NO interference. It they pancaked due to this design flaw, they STILL would have taken far longer to drop because of the interference of the structure itself. The ONLY way they could come down that fast is if they were rigged in advance with explosives. THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLANATION FOR THE SPEED OF COLLAPSE IN ANY OF THE THREE BUILDINGS. Go tell your whoppers to John Amato.

Hey Popeye, I'll second Chris, your full of shit.
First the strength of the towers was the 47 core columns each 46 by 16 inchs thick which the 911 commision neglected to mention, tube my butt.
Second the buildings were designed to take multiple hits from the largest airplanes of that time a 707 which is about the same size as a 767.
Third, building 7 was 100 yards from the trade centers, it was "pulled" and fell into its own footprint i.e. Larry Silverstein
Your explanation doesn't explain anything, you have done nothing but read the official story.

Popeye, if the towers were designed to withstand the impact of a 757, why are you saying that the slightest compromise to the exterior compromises the entire structure? Clearly the architects of the towers disagree. What about the central core? The pancake theory that you are in part advocating states that eventually a floor could not be supported, and the impact of it on the floor below caused it to collapse, and so on. How does this jive with the near-freefall speed? What are your claims about the fire weakening the steel?

I stick to the free-fall speed of the collapses because people seem to discount eyewitness testimony on disasters. I think the single most irrefutable point, and easy for anyone to understand, is the speed of collapse.

Physics is hard to agrue against, I think the paper written by Steven Jones is pretty damning although Im sure Popeye will have another brilliant observation. The molten steel that was glowing red hot after 5 weeks cannot be explained by jet fuel or combustable office material either. Nor can the pyroclastic cloud of dust be explained by the pancake theory. But the fact that they tried so hard to keep the tapes of the firefighters from getting out to the public adds weight to them I think. I figure the more people know the better.

"Four or five tanks!'' the commanders quoted Daash as telling his fellow generals. "Are you out of your minds? The whole damn American Army is at the airport!'' "

Another couple of actors were supposed to go on the show (March 28?) to have a debate with someone who was on the Keene (Keane?) Commission... but then I heard that CNN higher-ups cancelled the segment... for some reason?
Does anyone have any information on this?

Hey Bucknell University Student, what happened is that the Keene Commision guy backed out at the last second, probably because he new he couldnt answer Ed Asners questions. Go to Scholars for 911 truth for more info.

The telephone interview said they'd already met with the head of the legislature, and they were on their way to speak with Chavez, and that Chavez had said he was going to talk about it on his weekly television address. That's on Sunday nights. These guys are NOT cranks. It's the hero janitor who was the last man out of the towers alive, and the millionaire socialite who has now spent $6million trying to get the truth out. Both of them serious as heart attacks. I suppose we don't know for sure until Chavez broadcasts it, but they have been greeted by the highest circles in Venezuelan society and government, given blanket media coverage there. I'd say it's a go, Doug.

Bluebear2: Well, if there is an international effort, centered in Caracas, we might finally start getting some more information through places like Prison Planet, etc. And, just about any nastiness between the administration and Chavez is going to risk having this exposed. It provides a way for OTHER countries to begin researching and reporting on 9/11 Truth, and we will have to get it over the internet, network it until it cannot be ignored by the media anymore. If it's all over international news, that is a MAJOR blow to the omertà going on in our media now.

David Ray Griffin's lecture at the Grand Lake in Oakland was to an over capacity crowd of clearly approving people. The little country public radio station that aired it, KMUD, was swamped with calls from people positive about it, kids buying up CDs to distribute for free.... Just got back here from a web site with a snarling post about not being interested in the subject and get your own blog if you want to talk about it, blah, blah.... So, I don't think the momentum is going to slow. This time the "conspiracy theorists" are the ones with the cogent theory. The really weird one is the one put out by the 9/11 Commission. Anybody with a lick of sense can do a little research, hell, do a little thinking, and get on the right page. Believe me, if KMUD is swamped with calls, the momentum will not flag.

Popeye is dead wrong about the strength of the towers and those of you who've corrected him on this are right. The most important thing about 9/11 is that it was psyop. An operation designed to redefine reality to fit an official version of events. In other words, confusion and doubt about certain simple facts is the intended goal. The undisputable fact is that steel structures when properly designed, and no steel structure will be allowed to be built if it is not, don't collapse from fire. This is the truth and no engineer or "expert" should be allowed to tell you anything different. When confronted with psyops like 9/11, one must be able to think for oneself, as only those capable of separating fact from fantasy will be able to come out of these experiences unaffected. It is not possible to support the official 9/11 story and honestly accept the facts of the case. The two are mutually exclusive. The WTC twin towers were extremely well built with the central core bearing most of the weight while the outer shell dealt with wind loads mostly. The official story is a lie, and no amount of expert testimony to the contrary will make it true.

Realize the media knows this fact, we are at war. And to do anything to unsupport that effort, the patriot act can and will be enforced. Realize remove the act and watch them spill. And people say what freedom have you lost. I'm sure some of them will spew the same crap but most would follow the truth.
Don't think repub/dem. Don't think Left/Right. Think Corperate. What would your employer do to you if you don't follow that line. You can't be fired can you now. So we will threaten you. But don't threaten me too far or will punish you.
Don't you think with the enron scandal would make people to learn this. History shows this time and time again.
Freedom is just a fable.
Your free as long as you think you are.
Everyone can be bought, sold, killed its sad but this is what we've become.
Corruption leads to more corruption, leads to more
corruption, Till corruption kills itself. This stuff has been going on before Bush. Look at history. My comments don't make it right. It just makes you aware.

Steel will melt yes, but eventually (if continuously fed fuel and in the right conditions.) Most of the jet fuel in the WTC crashes burned up within the first 20 seconds of impact. No way hot enough to weaken anything.
But I guess thats why Ymost doubters are still living in sheer ignorant bliss and not researching for themselves. Like a smelly hippy they do not debate the facts, they only yell back .." your just crazy man..." Because they have no proper arguement to offer.
If anyone had read or listened to the entire Sheen-Jones transcript his accusations really don't sound all that wild. There WERE no Commercial plane parts evident at the Pentagon. There were no body bags, luggage, plane seats or even massive titanium engines there at all. (But thats OK you dont need to rebuke Charlies' comments just attack his personal character.)
The Presidents brother Marvin Bush was chairman of the security company (Which were supposed to look after Dulles, Logan and WTC towers -Securacom) has that ever seen the light of day?
What about the Firefighters (At the scene of the wtc towers) that made statements to the 9-11 Commission (Which were ignored) that indeed there were cutter charges imploding the towers that day. Larry Silverstein WAS awarded 3 Trillion US$ in compensation for attacks only contracted into his "clause" 3 months earlier. But gee... lets not touch on facts, just have a bit more fun poking holes in Charlie Sheen but dont ever discuss his claims, or even research the validity of his content.
That would show you to have journalistic integrity and an inquiring mind. Something not a lot of journalists have these days and quite obviously most debates about Charlie Sheens' claims are nothing more than slander jobs about a persons character.
Where were these comments when it was exposed GW Bush had over 300 late night visits by a gay call-boy to the whitehouse? Where were these comments when Rummy (forgot his version of events) and had said a missle had taken out the Pentagon? What about Cheneys recent comments (From official whitehouse webpage) that Osama really had NOTHING to do with 9-11? Jump up and down about that.
OH thats right, I almost forgot.... Bush monkeys only dance for bananas, when you play them the right tune.
Now Im not one for morons who tell me space aliens control the senate. But Mr Sheens comments DO rely on facts. To all the doubters about Charlie Sheen: Go and research what you are writing about PROPERLY It only makes you look stupid and amateurish, when you take the POX News line and nothing else. There is enough evidence out there to sink a skyscraper,

Sheen letter to the press questions 2 things Pent Video's and WTC#7. They can have the fact of the other issues and he Questions the Official 911 report on WTC #7. If anything should prevail WTC #7 should be focused on more. Remember this is a Building collapse caused By small fires and OIL not jet fuel. If OIL and small fires can destroy a building this quick one must fear all buildings like this Around the world. And it Demands and investigation with a 100% degree certainty. If you don't agree with the Official 911 Commission report. Be it in favor of the 911 Commission or the Conspiracy Nuts, you still need to demand a Investigation Officially.

I came across Another Film today thanks to a link at Project for the Old American Century
Many more people discussing explosions. The big clincher in these videos is the complete pulverisation of the concrete from the floors below the area of collapse. The air mass movement of the collapsing portion would not pulverise the concrete nor eject it so far horizontally from the building.

In time, or too late, You have to call out to AMERICA to wake up look where its heading. Most people were raised with Good Human Values. USE THEM. Wake up. If you know it doesn't look right and know what your doing is corrupt. Stop realize you are being controlled. Blow that whistle, realize either way you are going to be exposed and the ones controlling you will blame you or kill you to throw the blame from them. It's a vicious game. But if everyone admits the guilt the real truth will be exposed. Didn't your parents teach you that one lie leads to another, and another. The only way to stop the lie is with truth no matter how painful the outcome is. The game they are playing is DEATH not LIFE.

ok, i had to come back and show you guys something else, since you reject my years of education and knowledge i am resorting to pictures. why was there no lugage or plane parts, well, watch this video. this was a test performed some time ago that might answer that question. there was not so much as a bolt left of this thing.
i saw that video years ago (as in before 9/11), it is not a new thing, nor is it altered. the plane vaporized along with everything in it.
as for the strength of the towers, i am not wrong. they were built like a tube with the outside walls being the main weight bearing structures. this according to the designers of the buildings. they were revolutionary in their design in their day. conventional building techniques were not able to reach the heights that the WTC towers did since the weight could not be supported at that height for the materials used. the air conditioning and elevators were in the center of the building, of course, but they were not designed to take the brunt of the weight. that is not to say they didnt take any of it, just not the majority.
i only attack shean because he makes it easy. he falls hook line and sinker for every conspiracy theory and he is a total screw up in life. hell, he is not that great of an actor, and that is what he is supposed to be an authority on!
your theories do not address the 2 prior attempts at the towers, nor the acceptance of blame by al quieda, nor the elation in the middle east when they fell. those pieces dont make sense if it were our own government that planed this. and it really doesnt make sense when you remember the guy allegedly behind it in your estimation cant be in office more than 2 more years. if he tries to change the law and gain a third term, maybe, MAYBE, you guys have something. even still i can reject this out of hand, knowing the forces involved could easily account for everything you are discussing.

Popeye, no explanation for WTC7? I would like to hear your explanation of why a building that wasn't even hit by a plane would just fall all of sudden at free fall speed.....within 5 seconds. How can anyone look at the video of WTC7 falling and say that this wasn't a controlled demolition. It fell perfectly onto itself. Buildings just don't do that on their own.
COMMENT #313 [Permalink]

to be honest it is a great question, but i have not looked into it much. since no one was in that building it has not gotten much of my attention. so i must ask why it concerns you so much? if the government was interested in destroying the complex, obviously they could have done it. we still have surplus bombs from ww2 we have not figured out how to rid ourselves of. and even more stuff besides. why knock down that one? what was in it? why would that one be of singular interest?
i have seen the video of 7 falling, it does not appear as controlled demolition. it is hard to describe why i say that. but explosives that would compromise the structural integrity of the buildings would have blown the glass out. it would have been systematic and quite obvious. keep that in mind with your theories of 1 and 2 going as well. those explosives are quite powerful, and as i described before, they would have had to have been placed near the outside of the buildings. that would have made them quite visible.

why does it concern me so much? because it is unexplainable. there was no reason for that building to fall and the fact that it fell is quite suspicious.
It's been reported that there were government offices in that building.
that building fell at free fall speed, with no apparent resistance. the collapse began at the top middle to allow the buidling to collapse within itself. buildings just don't do that on their own.
you ask why knock that building down....but I believe a more important question is, why did that building fall in the first place. if that building wasn't "pulled" then what other reasonable explanation can there be to explain a building falling on its own at free fall speed? i'm asking this retorically since you've already stated you haven't looked into it. just to me, the fact that this building fell is quite suspicious and creates a hole in the 911 story.
