didn't the World Trade Centers look like this after the planes hit on 9/11?
The floors below the jet impact held the weight above for over 30 years, since 1971. The bottom floors bore the most weight, without a problem. Why did they suddenly give way under even less weight on 9/11? The floors below the crash easily held the weight for about 1 hour after the impacts. Why didn't WTC 1 and 2 continue to look like more this?
|Hypothesis: What if the 4 planes (11, 77, 93 and 175) were pre-fitted with devices to enhance the Remote Control (RC) capabilities that Boeing 757 and 767s already have? A white E4B airborne operations center was photographed trailing the hijacked jets. What if remote technicians in the E4B could cut off the pilots' ability to navigate or call for help? Cabin Air Pressure Outflow Valve (CAPOV) could depressurize and incapacitate the crew, passengers and patsies - confidential informants going to LA. Voice Morphed calls could get the official story out. 3 planes hit their target buildings with the speed, accuracy, and coldness indicative of computer enhanced remote control. If the RC of Flight 93 malfunctioned, was it shot down? Was it intended to hit WTC 7? www.911Theories.org|
|If the fires were so hot as to melt steel, how could this lady, Edna Cintron, and other people be standing there? Why did it take about an hour for the collapsing to start, when the steel had cooled and became stronger?|

|Scientists in Europe examined the WTC dust under an electron microscope, Dr. Niels Harrit of the University of Copenhagen, and Dr. Steven Jones of BYU. They found traces of explosive nano-thermite. Why didn't our own National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), which has the equipment, do this relatively simple experiment?|
|Why can military grade nano-thermite explosive residue be found under a microscope in the dust and pulverized concrete from the World Trade Centers?|
|What is high tech military grade explosive material doing in the concrete dust from the World Trade Center? The Red Layer is iron oxide and the Gray Layer is Aluminum, two components of explosives.|

|Niels Harrit, PhD, Professor of Chemistry at Copenhagen University in Denmark, identified
explosive thermitic material in dust samples of the pulverized concrete from the World Trade Center. Why is he interviewed on European TV news shows and not American TV?
|Does this look like an explosion or what?
What force propels steel beams in to the air, and pulverizes concrete?
|Why do the WTC tower explosions look so similar to photos of known explosion tests in the desert?|
|If the floors are falling down, why does steel and pulverized concrete fly upwards and outwards?|
|Why are "squibs" which are mis-timed explosions appearing at various places, below the point of collapse? These unplanned detonations sometime happens during controlled demolitions, due to vibrations and heat of the planned explosions.|
|How could a fire eject tons of steel laterally so hard that they embed themselves in neighboring buildings - unless explosives were involved?|
|How could the "pancaking" of floors downward cause steel beams that weigh tons to fly upwards and outwards? Explosions easily explain this. Why didn't the Official 9/11 report explain this?|
|Larry Silverstein invested $125 million to be landlord of the World Trade Centers, with a 99 year lease, on July 26, 2001, 47 days before 9/11, even though they had asbestos law violations. Asbestos removal estimates from these 30 year old buildings were over $1 billion. He bought the maximum possible insurance protection against acts of terrorism. He tried to double his winnings, by calling it 2 acts of terrorism for $7 billion, but the court ruled it was 1. He was awarded $3.5 billion ($3b profit). He also sued American and United Airlines for $16 billion for "negligence." Why is he smiling?|
|Why did Larry Silverstein bid so much to be the landlord of the WTCs, 6.7 weeks before 9/11,
when they had known billion dollar asbestos problems that had to be fixed? Why did he take out an extraordinary amount of insurance for terrorists incidents? Why did he make up the story about talking to the fire commander (who denies they talked) and that he said "the smartest thing to do is just pull it" (a controlled demolition term)? How did they rig the explosives so quickly?
|Why did Larry Silverstein lie on PBS TV about talking with the Fire Department Commander, Daniel Nigro, who denies that conversation ever took place?|
|Charlie Rose interviewed Larry Silverstein and asked him "Where were you on September 11th?"
Larry hemmed and hawed "Uh, you know.. I was...home." He usually would be at the Top of the World restaurant at 8:00 am meeting tenants, but "luckily" he was home on that day, getting ready to go to his dermatologist (non emergency). He said his wife insisted. Couldn't a billionaire pay the doctor, or team
of doctors, to make a house call at his convenience? His usually punctual 2 grown children Roger and Lisa were "on their way work" (from different homes to the 8:00 breakfast meeting) "running late" (46 minutes) and avoided being in the North Tower when it was struck 9:03 am. http://
|Why did the 9/11 damage bring down Larry Silverstein's buildings ,insured against terrorism, but not the neighboring buildings?|
|Why did George Bush continue reading "My Pet Goat" while thousands were being killed in the
World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks? Why didn't the Secret Service rush him to protection? Who knew he was safe in the Florida classroom?
During a speech, he slipped up and admitted there were explosives.
During another speech he lied about seeing the first planc crash on TV before entering the classroom. No one saw that on TV until a video surfaced the next day.
|Secretary Norman Mineta, US Secretary of Transporation testified before the 9/11 Commission,
that in the White House protective basement, a soldier told VP Dick Cheney that a plan was 10 miles from the Pentagon, then 5 miles, and asked "Do the orders still stand?" Cheney said "Of course the orders still stand! Have you heard anything to the contrary?" What orders? Not to shoot the plane down? Why was Mineta's testimony deleted from the 9/11 Report?
|What did VP Dick Cheney mean, when told that an airplane was approaching the Pentagon "Of course the orders still stand! Have you heard anything to the contrary?" Were the orders to allow the plane to hit the Pentagon? How can a man who dodged the draft for Viet Nam become a flag waving Secretary of Defense, sending young men and women to war?|
|Why was the report of William Rodriguez, a maintenance man who knew the WTC buildings for 20 years, not included in the Official report? Why does he say that he experienced explosions in the basement of the WTC even before the jets hit? President Bush awarded him for his bravery in saving lives on 9/11. Why does he turn down their favor to speak out against the official White House story of what happened?|
|What force could propel steel beams that weigh tons over a football field sideways, laterally to crash in to neighboring buildings unless explosives were used?|
|How can steel and concrete floors fall at the speed of gravity, unless explosives removed the supports?|
|How did the floors of WTC 7 collapse at free fall speed, unless explosives were used?|
|What happened to Barry Jennings, a NY City Emergency Management chief, who was trapped by an explosion in WTC 7 before the WTC 1 & 2 fell after he testified on ABC, and Loose Change reports? Did he die a "natural death" imposed by chemicals? Why is his family afraid to say how he died? Why no murder investigation?|
|Why would such scientists as Dr. Steven Jones and Kevin Ryan risk their reputations in the scientific community if they did not believe that what they find in the WTC dust is in fact military grade nano-thermite explosive material?|

|Why would William Christison, former Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis, say "The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly did not collapse and fall to earth because hijacked aircraft hit them. A plane did not hit Building 7 of the Center, which also collapsed. All three were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11. " See: PatriotsQuestion911.com|
|Major General Albert Stubblebine, Commanding General of U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command at the Pentagon says: "One of my experiences in the Army was being in charge of the Army’s Imagery Interpretation for Scientific and Technical Intelligence during the Cold War. I measured pieces of Soviet equipment from photographs. It was my job. I look at the hole in the Pentagon and I look at the size of an airplane that was supposed to have hit the Pentagon. And I said, ‘The plane does not fit in that hole’. So what did hit the Pentagon? What hit it? Where is it? What's going on?"|

|Why did it take so long for Dr. Shyam Sunder, head of the National Institute of Science and Technology, to admit in the official report, that WTC 7 exhibited free fall speed for 8 floors? How is that possible without explosives? Who was pressuring one of our country's top scientists to make illogical conclusions to cover up the explosive demolition? The propaganda message above the cartoon drawing of the WTC "Thermal Expansion Causes WTC 7 Floor Failures" is a lame theory with no experimental basis. It has not happened in any other buildings and a poor attempt to avoid the discussion of explosives, which have levelled hundreds of buildings by controlled demolition.|
|NIST on WTC7 Freefall: Why did they first claim there was no freefall in Aug '08 then acknowledge "This freefall drop continued for approximately 8 stories..." How can a building fall at the speed of gravity unless the support columns are blown away?|
|NIST in 2005: "Thus the actual time for the upper 18 stories to collapse, based on video evidence was approximately longer than the completed free fall time. High school Physics teacher David Chandler brought it to their attention that their starting time was too early. NIST changed its report in 2008 to acknowledge free fall occurred.|
|NIST in 2008: "In stage 2, the north face descended at gravitational acceleration" A building can only fall at the speed of gravity if there is no resistance to the fall. Concrete and steel are designed to resist fall, unless exploded with highly powerful thermite.|
|NIST Report; Downward velocity of north face roofline as WTC 7 began to collapse. Stage 2 consists of a free fall speed for 8 stories. How can a building fall at the speed of gravity unless supports are exploded away?|
|How could the jet fuel fire significantly melt the steel of the WTC? Kerosine filres take place at temperatures around 1110 F to 1740 F. But steel does not melt until 2890 degrees F are reached. However, thermite can easily reach 4532 degrees F (2500 degrees Celsius). So why didn't the 9/11 Commission consider thermite?|

|World Trade Center 7. Never forget...that no plane hit this building. At 5:00 pm on 9/11 it completely collapsed similar to a controlled demolition, symetrically, unnaturally, in to its own foot print.

|Matthys Levy, Chairman Emeritus of Structural Engineering company, Civil
Engineer, Columbia University, author of "Why Buildings Fall Down" said on the Discovery Channel "If you have seen any of the managed demolitions where they implode a building and they cause it to essentially to fall vertically, because they cause all the vertical columns to fail simultaneously, that's exactly what it looked like, and that's what happened."www.youtube.com/

|The seismic record from Columbia University's observatory in Palisades, NY (21 miles away) provides indisputable proof that massive explosions brought down those towers. At the precise moment the South Tower began collapsing, a 2.1 earthquake registered on the seismograph. At the precise moment the North Tower began collapsing, a 2.3 earthquake registered; however, as the buildings started to crumble these waves disappeared. The two spikes on the seismograph, which both occurred at the exact instants the collapses began, are twenty times the amplitude, or more than 100 times the force of the other waves. If the buildings had simply collapsed, the largest jolts would have occurred when the massive debris struck the earth, not at the beginnings of the collapses.|
Mark Walsh, a freelance reporter for FOX News, wearing a Harley T shirt and cap, interviewed by Fox TV's Rick Leventhal, gave us one of the first explanations for the collapse of the twin towers. Mark sounded rehearsed, and his relationship to FOX was not disclosed. "I saw this plane come out of nowhere and just reamed right into the side of the twin tower, exploding through the other side. And then I witnessed both towers collapse, one first, and then the second, mostly due to structure failure, because the fire was too intense." http://www.youtube.com/
|Abstract: To test the hypothesis that concrete pulverizes in to clouds of
dust when if falls, as it did at the World Trade Centers, according to the Official 9/11 Commission Report.
Procedure: Blocks of concrete were purchased to fall from a 5th floor balcony.
Results: It was found that the concrete cracked, but did not create a significant amount of concrete dust.
Conclusion: Explosives must have been used. We need a new 9/11 investigation.
|According to flight accident investigator Dale Leppard, Flight Data Recorder
(FDR) devices have always been found. They emit a homing beacon and are made of titanium. They record cockpit transmissions and other flight data. For the first time in history none of the 4 FDRs were recovered, according to the official story.
Why is there something strange about all 4 flights?
Why did Flight 11 from Boston turn Northwest instead of Southwest towards NYC?
Why did Flight 11 "just happen" to cross paths "almost colliding" with Flight 175?
Could terrorists have executed such perfect timing?
Why would terrorists waste 1/2 hour on a detour, and risk being shot down?
Why would they fly in the directon of Griffiss, Stewart, and McGuire Air Bases?
Why no titanium engines found for Flight 93?
Why is the hole in the Pentagon so small for Fight 77?
www.DavidGriscom.com PhD has a theory.
|If the World Trade Center fires were "so hot they weakened steel", why is this lady, Edna Cintron, able to stand near the hole where the plane crashed and jet fuel burned off?|
|Why were the "wing marks" already there in the 1994 US Geological Survey photo (black & white) precisely where Flight 93 crashed (color photo) in Shanksville Penn.? Why don't we see a lot of plane parts, as with other crashes? Was Flight 93 shot down? If the Remote Control of navigation was failing, was it blown up by remote control? Was it intended to hit WTC 7?|
|The west considers Lawrence of Arabia to be a hero, and Osama of Arabia to be a terrorist, yet they both used guerrila tactics. Lt. Col. T.E.

|The Official Story is that the plane went in to the Pentagon, then exploded. Why did the part from the airplane go out the hole, then turn right? This violates Newton's First Law of Motion, that an object tends to stay in motion and the same direction. Wouldn't it make more sense if the plane exploded just outside the wall?|
|This trajectory makes more sense for the parts found on the Pentagon lawn. Were explosives on board Flight 77 which went off just prior to impact, to lessen the damage?|

|JSOC (Dept. of Offense) had Bin Laden surrounded. Why didn't they bring him in alive as the U.S. Marshals (Dept. of Justice) do? "Bringing him to justice" means just that, in a Court of Law. Not a mafia style hit squad. Bin Laden was never officially charged with 9/11 by the DoJ or FBI, only by the Press and Presidents. He was a suspect of other crimes, and should have been brought in alive to face charges, and serve a life sentence. In the 1980's the CIA funded BIn Laden against the Russians in Afghanistan. He walks with a cane. Anyone could catch him. White House confirms Bin Laden was UNARMED, so there was no excuse for killing him. What "threatening gestures" did unarmed Bin Laden make, flipping the bird? Why quickly hide the body to "sleep wid da fishes"? He could not be allowed to testify or plead not guilty to 9/11. Even Charles Manson got a trial. What example of American Justice does this give to the world?|
|On this attached map, the Pentagon is in the upper left and Andrews Air Force Base is in the lower right at a distance of about 9 miles. (See red line.)
Norman Mineta testified that Cheney was given a warning by an officer that a plane was approaching the Pentagon, the plane is 50 miles out, 30 miles out, 10 miles out. He asked Cheney "Do the orders still stand?" who said
"Of course the orders still stand! Have you heard anything to the contrary?"
There are also armed helicopters at the Anacostia Bolling Joint Base which is about 2 miles, within sight of the Pentagon. (See purple line.)
It is utterly ridiculous that no jet could reach the Pentagon from Andrews.
They could not get 9 miles in over an hour?
You could walk there in an hour.
NORAD and the Air National Guard are not Keystone Cops.
They protect the Pentagon, Capitol, and White House.
A stand down order must be investigated.
