Question the 9/11 Commission Report

More than 1,400 engineers and architects have expressed significant criticism of the 9/11 Commission Report.  Several even allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11.  This page of the website is a collection of their statements. The website does not represent any organization and it should be made clear that none of these individuals are affiliated with this website.

Their collective voices give credibility to the claim that the 9/11 Commission Report is tragically flawed.


These individuals cannot be simply dismissed as irresponsible believers in some 9/11 conspiracy theory. Their sincere concern, backed by their professional responsibilities related to building design, construction, and other areas of engineering, demonstrates that criticism of the Commission Report is not inherently irresponsible or illogical, and that, in fact, it can be just the opposite.

If you are a current or former engineer or architect who has concerns about the 9/11 Commission Report and would like your comment added to this website, please contact me.

– Member, American Institute of Architects.  A practicing Architect for 20 years who has worked on most types of building construction including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings.  Founding member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
  • Speech at Sonoma State University 4/20/07:

    "Another 2006 poll by Scripps Howard, Ohio University, which found that a shocking 16% believe that the World Trade Center's Twin Towers were brought down by explosives.  Unfortunately, my research has also concluded that this is true.  Tonight I will present to you the very clear evidence that all three World Trade Center high-rise buildings, the Twin Towers and Building 7 were destroyed not by fire as our government has told us, but by controlled demolition with explosives." http://ae911truth.org/aboutus.php


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.


  • Signatory: Petition requesting a reinvestigation of 9/11, signed by more than 1,500 Architects and Engineers:

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates  hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.  We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7." http://www.ae911truth.org/joinus.php

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I was dubious of the official explanations from the outset. You see, as a professional city planner in New York, I knew those buildings and their design. I attended and participated in the hearings at the New York City Hall when the buildings were first proposed. I argued for the buildings on the basis that the interior core represented a way of internalizing the cost of mass transit, which in our system is almost impossible to finance through public bond issues.

    So I was well aware of the strength of the core with its steel columns, surrounding the elevators, and stairwells. I should also mention that with a degree in architecture and instruction in steel design (my Yale professor had worked on the Empire State Building) I was and am no novice in structural design.

    When I saw the rapid collapse of the towers, I knew that they could not come down the way they did without explosives and the severing of core columns at the base. The spewing of debris from the towers where the planes entered also could not have occurred simply with just a structural collapse. Something else was happening to make this occur.

    Moreover, the symmetrical collapse is strong evidence of a controlled demolition. A building falling from asymmetrical structural failure would not collapse so neatly, nor so rapidly, as you have pointed out.

    What we are faced with is a lie of such proportions that even to suggest it makes one subject to ridicule and scorn. Who could have done such a terrible thing? Certainly not our government or military. Rogue elements in the intelligence agencies? I have no idea.

    But I do know that the official explanation doesn't hold water. An open, honest re-opening of the case is in order. A near majority of Americans agrees with this view. Let us keep pressing for an honest investigation."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Letter to American Institute of Architects 11/26/06:

    "The primary duty of registered professionals is to protect the public safety.  Professionals' intelligence, knowledge and experience provide a delicate connection between science and fact. ...

    9-11 was a tragic event for our country, quickly “solved” by our government and propagated by our media, leading our country into fear, anguish, anger, war and unrestrained spending.

    Have we, as building professionals, been hoodwinked?  Who should better understand the collapse of the World Trade Towers than those in our profession, possibly with the consultation of demolition experts?

    As I and millions have reviewed the events of that day, it seems much of the cover story is not true and impossible.  As the nation is confused on the reality of that day, have we been making bad decisions ever since?

    My web site collects salient information that isolates the demise of the World Trade Towers – linking  many experienced, dedicated and articulate technical analysis that show clearly that the World Trade Towers were destroyed by internal explosives and not "fires from the airlines". ...

    After hundreds of hours of research, and thousands of dollars purchasing materials and information, this letter outlines my most salient, articulate examples of things that architects should investigate.  If I err slightly in any single item, that does not discount this letter.  On the contrary, even if only part of these accusations are true, they should be investigated." http://www.abodia.com/911

  • Endorsement of 9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press by David Ray Griffin: "This book describes in very straightforward and non-technical terms some major inconsistencies in the government's official story about the events on September 11, 2001.  It points out many attempts in the 9/11 Commission's report to cover up evidence. ... As an engineer, I am especially troubled by the cover-up of evidence relevant to the collapse of the three major World Trade Center buildings.  I hope that Congress and the public will heed this call for a full and impartial investigation to determine what really did happen on that fateful day." http://www.interlinkbooks.com

    It was not until early 2006 that I stumbled upon sufficient information to become suspicious of the "official" and generally accepted 9/11 storyline. This led me to do my own investigation during which I discovered the demise of WTC 7, which I was heretofore unaware of. Obviously it was the result of controlled demolition and scheduled to take place during the confusion surrounding the day’s events.

    I now feel morally obligated to deal with and expose the "politically unthinkable" issues surrounding the 9/11 phenomena by participating in such undertakings as signing this petition."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Book 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA: "As Bachmann told the Neue Züricher Zeitung Online on September 13, 2001, at first glance there seemed to be two possibilities in the fall of the towers. The first was the fire and its effect on the steel supports. But Bachmann had an alternative: "In the second scenario, an additional terrorist action would have caused the collapse of the buildings.  In this way, according to Bachmann, buildings like the World Trade center can be destroyed without great logistical exertion."  The article went on to say that "Bachmann could imagine that the perpetrators had installed explosives on key supports in a lower floor before the attack."  If the perpetrators had rented office space, then these "explosive tenants" could have calmly placed explosive charges on the vulnerable parts of the building "without having anyone notice." http://www.reopen911.org/Tarpley_ch_6.pdf

  • Statement to this website 12/14/09:

    "Truth, Ethics and Professionalism are completely lacking in the official aftermath and investigations surrounding the 911 disasters.  Unfortunately we went to war predicated on lies, sustained in lies, and perpetuated in lies.  The quickest way to stop this endless warring is to expose the truth about what and who caused the 911 disaster.  It is clear that the World Trade Center buildings 1, 2 and 7 were brought down in a contrived and controlled demolition from within.  Where is the investigation? Who really benefitted from this?  In any criminal investigation the first question asked is “who benefitted”.  Just follow the money.  

    Why do we prolong the conflagration through endless war, creating untold misery for men, women and children in the Middle East and for our own young sons and daughters and their families?   The most disgusting thing I have witnessed in my entire life was the spectacle of the richest and most powerful nations on Earth utterly destroying some of the poorest and most destitute countries.  What corruption lies behind this shame?  It is time to firmly demand a proper investigation to uncover the truths behind 911, and set about repairing the damages."

    "Terrorism supplants communism as the enemy our government uses to justify military intervention abroad. 

    Former Carter National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, advocated in a 1997 book for America’s domination of the world through military intimidation.  He audaciously stated that America’s democracy at home was in opposition to this goal and what was needed was “a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat.”

    Cut to September 11, 2001. 

    Our democracy, if not by then, was afterward an exoskeleton behind which lurked secret agendas.  We were told that terrorists hiding in Afghanistan perpetrated the attack and few questioned our subsequent military response.  There are, however, troubling questions about 9/11 that are as yet unanswered by our government.  For one, why did our military fail to intercept any of the airplanes on 9/11?  Was this failure the result of gross incompetence, or was a stand down order in place? 

    Many have come forward to sign petitions to Congress to reopen the investigation of the 9/11 attacks, especially the reason(s) for the collapse of WTC7.  Please visit PatriotsQuestion911.com to learn more.   Together, we have a lot of work ahead to restore American democracy."  http://news.rgj.com

  • Video interview 1/25/01: "The [Twin Tower] building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door. This intense grid ­ and the jet-plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting." http://video.google.com


  • Editor's note: The Boeing 767-200s that impacted the Twin Towers on 9/11 were only slightly larger than 707s and DC 8s, the types of jetliners whose impacts the World Trade Center's designers anticipated.  The maximum takeoff weight of the 707 is 15% less than the 767.

  • Statement 7/1/07: "The frequently repeated TV images of the aircraft slamming into the World Trade Centre overwhelmed any thoughtful response. Naturally, the collapse of the buildings was attributable to this traumatic event.

    It was only later when pictures emerged showing the inappropriate damage to the Pentagon – reported to have been caused by a large aircraft crashing through several layers of external wall – that professional doubt was aroused in my mind. Thereafter, The fall of the World Trade Center  video showed the side of one tower ‘unzipping’ along one side of a damaged floor. My knowledge of structure and dynamics told me that unless the other sides simultaneously ‘unzipped’ there was no way that the tower would have ‘pancaked’ onto it’s own footprint: it should surely have toppled outwards. That both towers did the same was just too improbable to be plausible.

    Hence I am anxious to learn what really happened." http://www.911blogger.com/node/9736

– Registered Architect in New York and California.
  • Essay 12/06: "The NIST investigation of the WTC building failures was extensive, but NIST did not substantiate its conclusions experimentally. On the contrary, many of NIST’s tests contradicted its conclusions. Furthermore, there are several examples in which NIST chose to manipulate input data, and then certify its findings based upon the inevitable conclusions that derive from the manipulated input. One finds little acknowledgement on the part of NIST that uncertainties in its simulations translate into uncertainties in its findings.

    NIST’s physical tests were inadequate. Their ASTM E119 tests and their workstation burn tests were improperly modeled. Further, the former produced results that contradicted NIST’s conclusions and the latter fell far short of testing the performance of realistic steel members in the actual fire conditions. The workstation burn tests showed that the temperatures were generally too low, especially in the ventilation-controlled WTC environments. The ASTM E119 tests showed that the WTC floor trusses should have easily withstood the fires they experienced on 9/11.

    There were also flaws in NIST’s computer simulations, including its impact simulation, its fire loading simulation, its temperature mapping simulation, its thermal/structural component simulations, and its global simulation. The LS-DYNA simulation showed that the aircraft would have done much less damage than NIST assumes, and NIST’s subsequent "scenario pruning" was confused and unsubstantiated. The decision to exclude the hat truss from the structural/thermal response simulations was a significant omission. The sequence of failed truss seats leading to pull-in forces on the exterior columns is central to NIST’s theory but not explained or supported by simulation.

    This paper will conclude that the findings of the NIST investigation, although not necessarily incorrect, are not inherently linked to the reality of the failure mechanisms that took place in WTC buildings 1 and 2. The author calls on NIST to explain the discrepancies in its reports, admit the level of uncertainty in its findings, broaden the scope of its investigation, and make its raw data available to other researchers." http://www.journalof911studies.com

    Jeff Hill:  And I've come to my conclusions, too, that it couldn't have came down by fire.

    Danny Jowenko:  No, it -- absolutely not.

    Jeff Hill:  Are you still sticking by your comments where you say it must have been a controlled demolition?

    Danny Jowenko:  Absolutely.

    Jeff Hill:  Yes?  So, you as being a controlled demolitions expert, you've looked at the building, you've looked at the video and you've determined with your expertise that --

    Danny Jowenko:  I looked at the drawings, the construction and it couldn't be done by fire. So, no, absolutely not.

    Jeff Hill:  OK, 'cause I was reading on the Internet, people were asking about you and they said, I wonder -- I heard something that Danny Jowenko retracted his statement of what he said earlier about World Trade Center 7 now saying that it came down by fire.  I said, "There's no way that's true."

    Danny Jowenko:  No, no, no, absolutely not.

    Jeff Hill:  'Cause if anybody was -- Like when I called Controlled Demolition here in North America, they tell me that , "Oh, it's possible it came down from fire" and this and that and stuff like that --.

    Danny Jowenko:  When the FEMA makes a report that it came down by fire, and you have to earn your money in the States as a controlled demolition company and you say, "No, it was a controlled demolition", you're gone.  You know?

    Jeff Hill:  Yeah, exactly, you'll be in a lot of trouble if you say that, right?

    Danny Jowenko:  Of course, of course.  That's the end of your -- the end of the story.

    Jeff Hill:  Yeah, 'cause I was calling demolitions companies just to ask them if they used the term, "Pull it" in demolition terms and even Controlled Demolitions, Incorporated said they did.  But the other people wouldn't -- didn't want to talk to me about Building 7 really because obviously 'cause they knew what happened and they didn't want to say it.

    A simple matter.  Your newspaper reported shortly after the 9-11-01 that Mr. Cheney was taken by the Secret Service to the basement of the White House shortly after 9:00 am.  This was confirmed by a photographer who was there.  Mr. Mineta said that Mr. Cheney was in the basement when he got there at 9:20 am. Mr. Clark in his book supports this conclusion as well.  The 9-11 Commission Report says that Mr. Cheney is not taken to the "basement" until almost 10:00 am.  In an article after the 9-11 Commission Report was published your newspaper reported that Cheney was taken to the basement at 10:00 am without comment on the previously reported events that stand in total contradiction to the truth.

  • Interview Alex Jones Show 4/11/07:

    Alex Jones: Recap Hani Hanjour's maneuver, what they claim -- go through the maneuver they claim he did and then what supposedly happened there at the Pentagon ...

    Commander Muga:  The maneuver at the Pentagon was just a tight spiral coming down out of 7,000 feet.  And a commercial aircraft, while they can in fact structurally somewhat handle that maneuver, they are very, very, very difficult.  And it would take considerable training.  In other words, commercial aircraft are designed for a particular purpose and that is for comfort and for passengers and it's not for military maneuvers.  And while they are structurally capable of doing them, it takes some very, very talented pilots to do that. ...

    When a commercial airplane gets that high, it gets very, very close to getting into what you refer to as a speed high-speed stall.  And a high-speed stall can be very, very violent on a commercial-type aircraft and you never want to get into that situation.  I just can't imagine an amateur even being able to come close to performing a maneuver of that nature.  

    And as far as hijacking the airplanes, once again getting back to the nature of pilots and airplanes, there is no way that a pilot would give up an airplane to hijackers. ...

    I mean, hell, a guy doesn't give up a TV remote control much less a complicated 757.  And so to think that pilots would allow a plane to be taken over by a couple of 5 foot 7, 150 pound guys with a one-inch blade boxcutter is ridiculous.

    And also in all four planes, if you remember, none of the planes ever switched on their transponder to the hijack code.  There's a very, very simple code that you put in if you suspect that your plane is being hijacked.  It takes literally just a split-second for you to put your hand down on the center console and flip it over.  And not one of the four planes ever transponded a hijack code, which is most, most unusual. ...

    Commercial airplanes are very, very complex pieces of machines.  And they're designed for two pilots up there, not just two amateur pilots, but two qualified commercial pilots up there.  And to think that you're going to get an amateur up into the cockpit and fly, much less navigate, it to a designated target, the probability is so low, that it's bordering on impossible."

    "My nephew was told that people in the South Tower didn't have to evacuate because the collapse of the North Tower was an accident. I believe that NORAD [North American Aerospace Defense Command] knew that the South Tower was going to be attacked before it went down. Think of what this means. Able Danger was not the first revelation. There were lots and lots of clues about the fact that the government had prior knowledge. ...

    "I'm just beginning to read all the exposés of 9/11. Even though Able Danger identified four of the hijackers before the bombing, I would still like to know how the government knew so quickly after the attacks who the hijackers were. The 9/11 commission definitely did not get to the full truth." http://www.wsws.org

    "Didn't seem right from the get-go.  Spoke to an electrical engineer during an inspection on the morning of 11 Sep 2001.  He had not yet heard that the two towers had collapsed, and couldn't believe, from the simple facts we knew at the time, that aircraft impacts could precipitate a collapse of the World Trade Towers.

    Soon the President announced names of the highjackers who had crashed the planes, and propagated the story of Al Qaeda as the terrorism perpetrators.  Right, and a highjacker left a passport that survived the pulverization of the Towers!  Too many plain tall tales and improbable explanations surround the circumstances of that day.

    Now we can begin to understand that, as Barry Zwicker’s Towers of Deception book sketches out, the traumatic shock of the spectacular experience makes the mind need explanation, and the initial propaganda catapulted by Bush and the media that most people did accept as explanation even if tentatively, causes pain when contradicted by countering evidence.  Statements of the A/E professionals here provide ample brief summary of that evidence.  The book, In the Wake of 9/11, offers further exploration of psychological processes associated with the aftermath of the event that could assist persuasive discussion."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "Just another conspiracy against some groups of people for the US administration to beat the war drums. How can a building just collapse onto itself without having controlled explosions inside the building?

    Let me ask a few questions pertaining to if it was not a controlled demolition.

    Most of high-rises are designed such that the lower frame members take most of the loads of the building above them. So as we go down on any building the frame members get stiffer and bulkier. So what happened in WTC? The lower frame members were not taking the loads of building above them or what. Secondly the designs normally carries an F.S of 1.44-2.5 depending on the material used, meaning the members will not yield under 1.44-2.5 times the loads it is designed for. What happened here...can the government explain?

    The high-rise when properly designed have a lateral stability and are braced properly which redistribute the loads if some members even fail.

    In this case , from the videos of crash we have seen, it is clear that the airplanes hit one side of the tower, which could have caused serious damage to structural members, The member forces must have been redistributed unless the plastic yield point was reached and the members gave in. Again then since the accident was a non-symmetrical, so the top portion of WTC must show leaning on the weak side before collapse. Which is not the case.

    A building never collapses like this under this phenomenon. Even a finite element method analysis of the building collapse does not show that the building will collapse within few minutes of such a catastrophe.

    The building must have been designed to take the lateral sway forces of wind and redistribute the loads to other members, so why did it not happen in the case of this accident?

    Seeing various video footage make me think that the controlled demolition started from top to bottom, as if it would have started from bottom, the building collapse pattern would be different than the current."  http://www.ae911truth.org

William Rice

William Rice, BS CE, MS CE, PE


William Rice, BS CE, MS CE, PE
– Licensed Professional Engineer, State of Vermont.  Worked on structural steel and concrete buildings in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia for two of the nation’s largest building construction companies; the Austin Company and the George A. Fuller Construction Company.  Former Professor at Vermont Technical College where he taught engineering materials, structures lab, and other building related courses for over 20 years.
  • Essay Vermont Guardian 3/1/07: "Having worked on structural steel buildings as a civil engineer in the era when the Twin Towers were designed and constructed, I found some disturbing discrepancies and omissions concerning their collapse on 9/11. ...

    The interesting fact is that each of these 110-story Twin Towers fell upon itself in about ten seconds at nearly free-fall speed. This violates Newton’s Law of Conservation of Momentum that would require that as the stationary inertia of each floor is overcome by being hit, the mass (weight) increases and the free-fall speed decreases.

    Even if Newton’s Law is ignored, the prevailing theory would have us believe that each of the Twin Towers inexplicably collapsed upon itself crushing all 287 massive columns on each floor while maintaining a free-fall speed as if the 100,000, or more, tons of supporting structural-steel framework underneath didn't exist.

    Controlled demolition is so politically unthinkable that the media not only demeans the messenger but also ridicules and "debunks" the message rather than provide investigative reporting. Curiously, it took 441 days for the president’s 9/11 Commission to start an "investigation" into a tragedy where more than 2,500 WTC lives were taken. The Commission’s investigation also didn't include the possibility of controlled-demolition, nor did it include an investigation into the "unusual and unprecedented" manner in which WTC Building #7 collapsed. http://www.vermontguardian.com


  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "About a year ago I became aware of the unprecedented collapse of WTC Building 7 and the Twin Towers at free-fall speed.  Professor Steven Jones' video lecture was a stunning revelation and a wake-up call.  My experience and further research confirmed the uncomfortable facts as presented by Professor Jones.

    I also found it disturbing that most politicians seem to have little interest in exploring any theory other than the official jetliners / fires-caused-the-collapses theory.  I was told the following in a response letter from one of our representatives in Washington:  "Regarding conspiracy theories surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, a number of theories questioning the events that occurred on and before September 11, 2001 have circulated.  They are patently false.  Several videos have been posted on the internet on this subject, and they too are false."... "The 9/11 Commission, a bipartisan group of nationally respected individuals, evaluated all relevant testimony and documents related to the events and provided a detailed account of what actually happened on that fateful morning." However, this "nationally respected" 9/11 Commission failed to include some very important facts and testimonies in their report even though they had to have been aware of them.  For example, the 9/11 Commission Report completely omitted the unprecedented collapse of Building 7.

    Many of the facts and theories that engineers have learned in such courses as structures, physics, chemistry, metallurgy, etc., have held true for longer than the hundred-year history of structural-steel-framed high-rise buildings and they held true on 9/11/01.  Only controlled demolition could have provided the types of building collapses displayed three times on that fateful day."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "There is so much evidence that has yet to be 'debunked' or explained by the 'official story'.

    The initial antenna drop in WTC 1 before the perimeter walls drop, accelerating into the path of most resistance, the concrete dust analysis and energy it took to make it, why the corners of the towers did not collapse at the same rate as the floors, the cut up core columns at ground zero, the lack of any photographic evidence whatsoever of any 'pancaked' floors, the time it took to collapse, the energy needed to throw steel hundreds of feet, the squibs well below the collapse wave, and of course the collapse of WTC 7.

    Until such time that all this can be clearly explained without the use of explosives, I will throw my lot with fundamental laws of physics rather then the 'official story' which defies those laws."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "So many things I have heard and seen about the destruction of the Twin Tower buildings, I did not understand. I thought my material science and building construction lectures set me up pretty well with all the principals if not all the mathematics.

    So how come the buildings just dropped like a stone? Why didn't they fall sideways? The planes did not hit dead centre! And they hit more columns on one side! Why does the mast on top of the building start collapsing before the top deck? Why does the top of the building just start breaking up straight away? Why does it not move as one piece above where the planes hit? Why was there so much dust, billowing clouds, surely not including asbestos? Then they fall down in less than 3 hours? (approx 80 minutes and 120 minutes) What's wrong with the Fireproofing? What sort of fuel burns hotter than diesel or petrol also stored in these buildings? What destroys the fireproofing and melts steel, not just makes it sag. Why Molten Metal in the basements weeks after the collapse? "Whelen the Wrecker" men with boots too hot to wear? Despite continually flooding the basement the fires continue to burn without oxygen. Then a third 47 Storey WTC building fell, again dropping like a stone, despite only being hit by the main tower only on one side. In the Towering Inferno movie the building stays up, time for people to get out despite chaos.

    We as architects and engineers need to know how to stop the next terrorist plane knocking down one of our buildings."  http://www.ae911truth.org

Despite the absence of any visible fire at the time of collapse, the government report alleges WTC Building 7 is the first and only steel-framed high-rise building in the history of mankind to collapse simply as the result of a fire.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I believe that it is physically/scientifically impossible for the heat from the burning planes to have caused the collapse. If the steel had failed by heat, as has been claimed, the building would have deformed.

    The speed of the building's collapse, indicating no resistance as it fell, further indicates that only carefully placed and timed detonation devices throughout the skeletal structure could account for the sudden implosion of the towers into their footprints.

    The only plausible reason for collapse of WTC 7, which was not hit by any plane, is similarly, timed explosives within the building."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I have been a practicing architect/urban designer and management consultant with over 40 years experience and the founder and president of Barasch Architects & Associates, Inc., a multidisciplined architecture/engineering corporation.  I have had broad experience in the planning, design & engineering of multi-story, braced-frame and moment-resisting steel frame structures including office towers and large scale institutional complexes.

    After reviewing the data presented by the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Organization and through my independent assessment of the data I have reviewed, and based on my 40+ years of professional experience, I have concluded that it would be nearly impossible for any of the principal World Trade Center Towers to collapse in the manner or in the recorded time frame as a result of any fire or explosion caused solely by the impact of terrorist-guided aircraft alone.  Braced steel frame buildings simply don't collapse in a symmetrical manner with a uniform plume of debris in 102 or 56 minutes respectively with modern structural design standards and state-of-the-art life-safety systems which must be continuously inspected by local building inspectors based on ever increasing performance standards centered on human survival."  http://www.ae911truth.org

Despite the absence of any visible fire at the time of collapse, the government report alleges WTC Building 7 is the first and only steel-framed high-rise building in the history of mankind to collapse simply as the result of a fire.

    "I am not a structural engineer by training or practice, nor does my practice concern the design of structural steel buildings.  Nevertheless, having basic civil engineering coursework experience (steel and r/c design, etc...) and some structural framing design experience I have harbored deep doubts about the government's explanation for these collapses since the morning of 9/11.

    I recall expressing then how the buildings would remain intact, even given the severe damage they had experienced, never considering that the damage inflicted could cause collapse.

    There is power in numbers and there is further power in the prestige and integrity of the numerous engineers, architects, and scientists who have come forward and who may yet come forward to challenge the government's explanations or lack thereof.

    I suggest that there are powerful computer modeling and physical testing tools that are likely being employed and may yet be employed in concert with the photographic, video, and forensic evidence to investigate how these towers collapsed, political motivations aside.

    I believe it is very important that these questions be addressed and support efforts to do so and thank all those who have come forward and put much time and energy into the numerous and vigorous research efforts that have already been conducted."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "From the first day of the 'attack' my intuition told me that some things did not fit.  I knew that the buildings collapsed too quickly and that the manner of the collapse was too 'controlled'.  With each new piece of mainstream media news release from 'official' sources my response was 'Yeah, right.'  I knew, without any doubt, before the invasion began and without seeing one bit of 'official evidence' that there was no link between the 9/11 attack and Iraq.  I knew then as I know now that it was all about control of oil and empire building.

    I, however, did not take the time to do a study of the facts until recently when the new drums calling for war with Iran by the same folks who masterminded the war with Iraq by linking 9/11 with Iraq.  My research has indeed pointed to too many discrepancies and outright lies regarding the events of 9/11.  The most revealing and the most amusing (in a cynical manner) is the BBC reporter standing in the forefront of a still standing Building 7 as she reported (I assume from a pre-prepared script) that the same Building 7 had earlier collapsed.  Afterwards, the collapse of Building 7 was so 'neat and clean' anyone could see that it was a pre-planned controlled demolition.

    A totally independent study and report needs to be presented to the public."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition: 

    "At 1.8 million square feet, WTC 7 was possibly larger than any building on the West Coast.  Bank of America (1.4 million sf) and the Transamerica Pyramid (.5 million sf), the two highest buildings in San Francisco, are together only slightly greater in area. 

    Few Americans know that WTC 7 collapsed, even fewer know how big it was.  I have read that its collapse was shown only one time on television; in its documentaries about the WTC collapse, PBS not only didn't explain the collapse of WTC7 but never even mentioned the collapse of a third building, because doing so would have undermined their conclusion that planes and jet fuel were responsible for the collapses. 

    Much evidence exists of explosions throughout the WTC buildings.  Persistent pools of 2000 degree metal can only be explained by the presence of thermite/thermate, used in planned demolitions.  Squibs, puffs of smoke characteristic of planned demolitions, can be clearly seen in advance of the collapses. 

    The official story does not explain the collapse of WTC7 or the collapse of the cores of WTC 1 and 2.  YouTube videos of a BBC reporter announcing the collapse of WTC7 just prior to its actual collapse is convincing proof that the authorities had advance knowledge of its imminent collapse. 

    There is just one explanation for the evidence associated with these collapses: demolition by expertly planned and placed explosives."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "We design and analyze buildings for the overturning stability to resist the lateral loads with the combination of the gravity loads.  Any tall structure failure mode would be a fall over to its side.  It is impossible that heavy steel columns could collapse at the fraction of the second within each story and subsequently at each floor bellow.

    We do not know the phenomenon of the high rise building to disintegrate internally faster than the free fall of the debris coming down from the top.

    The engineering science and the law of physics simply doesn't know such possibility.  Only very sophisticated controlled demolition can achieve such result, eliminating the natural dampening effect of the structural framing huge mass that should normally stop the partial collapse.  The pancake theory is a fallacy, telling us that more and more energy would be generated to accelerate the collapse.  Where would such energy would be coming from?"  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Comment 2/6/06: " I've worked in structural steel for years and I've studied major structural collapses.  I don't believe the collapse witnessed was possible due to the planes and ensuing fires alone.  I don't believe the core verticals would have buckled as they apparently did, unless first taken out from below.  I don't claim to know who might have been responsible, but a preponderance of eyewitness testimony supports secondary [explosive] devices.

    IMO, nobody knows what really happened, despite countless claims of certainty on both sides of the aisle. ...

    Ideally, we need to see an accurate scale model, or at the minimum, an accurate detailed computer simulation & recreation to show that such a complete instantaneous failure of the central vertical columns is even possible." http://www.dailykos.com


  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "The speed at which the buildings fell implied that the central cores provided virtually no vertical resistance at any point during the collapses.  When the live television commenter stated that there must have been tons of explosives on site to cause such a collapse, I found myself in agreement and assumed it would all come out during the investigation.

    Combined with the reports of "molten metal", inexplicably high temperatures recorded even by satellite, rapid removal and destruction of the structural evidence, the finding of tiny fragments of human bone thrown laterally from the structures, the missing pentagon trillions on 9/10; I am very concerned about the kind of world we are leaving to the next generations.  9/11 and the ensuing cover up is a big part of that concern."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Essay 2004: "While none of the many 9-11 researchers knows exactly what happened on that fateful day in September almost 3 years ago, any sensible person can easily spot dozens of inconsistencies in the official story that is being forced upon us.

    And these inconsistencies are huge. They range from the apparent stand-down of our immense military arsenal (for over an hour and a half) to the small hole and lack of debris at the Pentagon. There was Bush's bizarre, uninterrupted photo op in a Florida elementary school, and then there is the matter of the remains of Flight 93 being scattered over eight miles of Pennsylvania farmland, a fact which suggests the plane may have been shot down. The official story seems wrong on all of these points. ...

    And the fact is, most of the available 9-11 evidence points to at least some level of government complicity or foreknowledge.

    Please, read more for yourself. Don't take my word for it. Most of all, do not buy the double-speak that visible politicians and the media use to discount any question about 9-11." http://www.physics911.net

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I began having doubts about, so called, official explanations for the collapse of the WTC towers soon after the explanations surfaced.  The gnawing question that lingers in my mind is: How did the structures collapse in near symmetrical fashion when the apparent precipitating causes were asymmetrical loading?  The collapses defies common logic from an elementary structural engineering perspective.  “If” you accept the argument that fire protection covering was damaged to such an extent that structural members in the vicinity of the aircraft impacts were exposed to abnormally high temperatures, and “if” you accept the argument that the temperatures were high enough to weaken the structural framing, that still does not explain the relatively concentric nature of the failures.

    Neither of the official precipitating sources for the collapses, namely the burning aircraft, were centered within the floor plan of either tower; both aircraft were off-center when they finally came to rest within the respective buildings. This means that, given the foregoing assumptions, heating and weakening of the structural framing would have been constrained to the immediate vicinity of the burning aircraft. Heat transmission (diffusion) through the steel members would have been irregular owing to differing sizes of the individual members; and, the temperature in the members would have dropped off precipitously the further away the steel was from the flames—just as the handle on a frying pan doesn't get hot at the same rate as the pan on the burner of the stove. These factors would have resulted in the structural framing furthest from the flames remaining intact and possessing its full structural integrity, i.e., strength and stiffness.

    Structural steel is highly ductile, when subjected to compression and bending it buckles and bends long before reaching its tensile or shear capacity. Under the given assumptions, “if” the structure in the vicinity of either burning aircraft started to weaken, the superstructure above would begin to lean in the direction of the burning side. The opposite, intact, side of the building would resist toppling until the ultimate capacity of the structure was reached, at which point, a weak-link failure would undoubtedly occur. Nevertheless, the ultimate failure mode would have been a toppling of the upper floors to one side—much like the topping of a tall redwood tree—not a concentric, vertical collapse.

    For this reason alone, I rejected the official explanation for the collapse of the WTC towers out of hand. Subsequent evidence supporting controlled, explosive demolition of the two buildings are more in keeping with the observed collapse modalities and only serve to validate my initial misgivings as to the causes for the structural failures.

  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "At first I could not believe that the world trade center buildings 1 and 2 were taken down by demolitions, but after doing my research, seeing several documentaries on general demolitions I began to compare the collapse of building 7 to the footage of normal building demolitions.  As I continued to research the events of 9/11 it became clear to me that there needs to be a serious independent study of the events and the collapse of buildings 1, 2 and 7.  Now, there is no question in my mind that all three building were taken down by controlled demolitions.  One question that I did have in the following days of 9/11 was the statement that all steel was being sent to China, having grown up in a steel town in Ohio, I couldn't imagine that the steel would not have been kept for investigation."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "Part of the cover up lies in the design of buildings 1 and 2. The obvious "demolition style" collapse of building 7 is much harder to ascertain in buildings 1 and 2 because of their exterior structure. If the basement columns were intentionally sheared then the fall would have been masked by the vertical exterior lines of the structure moving vertically. This is an optical illusion impossible with buildings having standard windows or noticeable articulation. I've watched video of the collapse many times and it is impossible to tell if the floors pancaked, collapsed all the way down or if it had a demolition style collapse."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Member: Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society  Association Statement: "In the case of Sept 11, 2001, there exists an overwhelming body of evidence suggesting that the attacks of that day could not have been carried out without complicity from within the highest levels of the US government, and the official "investigation" was in fact a cover-up, by US authorities and media alike.  The truth about 9/11 is not known, not because it is unknowable, but because it has been concealed.  We are part of an international truth-seeking movement.  We believe that truth and justice matter.  This Society is committed to exposing the facts and demanding the truth about 9/11."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I accepted the government's conspiracy story as given out by the main stream media and did not give much if any thought to it until a neighbor on March 1, 2006 brought me a story from the Deseret Morning News in SLC, Utah.

    It was dated 1-28-06.  I contacted the journalist and asked if there were any other stories and she sent me two others.  After reading them and finally thinking about it and based on my engineering education and experience, I realized that we have been lied to and that there was a coverup.  For instance if the floors pancaked and fell one on the other from the fires, which could not possibly melt and cut the steel, the 47 massive columns over a quarter mile high would still be standing!

    There was no forensic investigation and the steel fell in lengths that could be loaded and trucked to the west coast and shipped to Asia.  Also the 9/11 Commission report did not mention the 47 story WTC 7, which fell the afternoon that the two towers fell in the morning!  A sure sign of a false report.

    My opinion is that the 3 WTC buildings fell as a result of planted cutting charges - an inside job.  Regarding the Pentagon I believe from the size of the hole in the ext. wall and lack of airplane debris, that it must have been a missile.  As for the 4th plane that supposedly crashed near Shanksville, PA, there was only a smoking hole in the ground and all the debris was scattered over a very wide area so it must have been shot down."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement of support to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth 7/16/07: "I am a consulting mechanical engineer with over 55 years of experience in the design and construction of all types of buildings including high-rise office towers.  I am an expert in heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and fire protection for buildings.  I have authored 41 technical papers and I am a chapter author in 3 books covering HVAC systems, building and energy requirements, solar heating and cooling applications, thermal energy storage and earthquake damage to building nonstructural systems.

    I support the work of Dr. Steven Jones.  He has provided a scientific foundation for the collapse of the three World Trade Center (WTC) towers.  I read the FEMA September, 2002 report, prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers, and initially accepted their theory of the collapse of WTC 1 and 2.  As more information became available on the web, I was motivated to research the subject in a more rigorous manner.  I have carefully studied the Jones 2006 paper, "Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?" and concluded that it is a rational step-by-step study that meets the accepted standards for scientific building research.  His critical reviews of the FEMA, NIST, and 9/11 Commission reports are correct.  I have signed his petition calling for the release of all U.S. Government-held information regarding the events of 9/11/2001.

    Steven Jones' call for a “serious investigation” of the hypothesis that the WTC 7 and the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fire, but through the use of pre-positioned "cutter-charges" must be the rallying cry for all building design experts to speak out.  Dr. Jones is following in the footsteps of Dr. Linus Pauling of the California Institute of Technology, who rallied his fellow scientists to oppose the development of the Hydrogen Bomb and the testing of nuclear weapons.  He was later awarded the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize for these efforts."

  • Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

    "Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

    They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

    Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

    We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

    We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media."


  • Essay Painful 9/11 Truth 9/4/07:  "Many technical analyses cast doubt on the official explanation of the collapse of three World Trade Center buildings, including those presented by an impressive new group: Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.  More difficult than discovering the truth, however, is convincing most of the public to accept the bitter truth. ...

    When it comes to 9/11, we face the strong belief that only al-Qaeda caused 9/11.  But analyses by many experts reveal the collapse of the three WTC buildings was not caused by the two airplanes exploding into the twin towers.  Without getting into details that one can spend many hours examining on a number of websites, the general view is that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition.

    If correct, the immediate reaction is like a cosmic big bang.  It would have taken considerable effort by a number of people with expertise and access to the buildings to rig them so that they could be intentionally collapsed when the two jets hit the towers.  Tough questions flood in:  Who could have engineered all this?  Could foreign agents accomplish such complex actions - and if they did, why not take credit for it?  If Americans did it, why would they intentionally inflict inevitable mass death and devastation?  Worse, they seemingly knew about the plan to fly the jets into the towers.

    Post-9/11, why have the government and official investigations not come to the same controlled demolition conclusion?  This makes sense if the government was involved. ...

    Like other groups, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth wants a new, honest and comprehensive study that considers all the evidence for controlled demolition.  As a former engineering professor with growing skepticism about the official WTC story I share their concerns.  First, let the technical truth emerge.  Then, if necessary, cope with the inevitable political, conspiracy and other questions.  But let us not allow a possible painful truth block the primary task of determining once and for all what caused the collapse of the WTC towers and building no. 7. ...

    If those that believe the official 9/11 story - especially elected officials - trust their views, then let them support a serious effort to test the validity of the controlled demolition hypothesis.  If they fear and reject doing so, then let us see that as suspicious and unacceptable.

    To sum up, horrific possible answers can cause us to shun a question.  But clearing our minds of the fear of painful truths is essential to clearing our nation of destructive lies.  Otherwise, we stay stuck in a delusional democracy."  http://blogcritics.org

  • Speech 6/3/06: "I've learned that there's no question that this government, that we have perpetrated the 9/11 event.  I know as an engineer that steel buildings do not melt inside of an hour's time and even if they did -- got soft spots or whatever due to whatever it is -- there's no way to bring them down in a free-falling condition.  And on 9/11, three tremendous structures, three powerful steel structures came down in 10 seconds or less.  Just like that. 

    That can only be done by a demolition process; implosions, which are very dramatic and so on.  But implosions are things you have to plan well in advance.  And you have to have access to all parts of the buildings which are going to be imploded. And so you'll have to go through security systems and so on.  And it has to be, really, a conspiracy to bring down a building by that method, which is inhabited by thousands of people.  And yet, that is exactly what happened. ...

    I believe that the 9/11 event has now been exposed by so many, many people; ... David Ray Griffin, ... Steven Jones and many others have destroyed the myth really of 9/11 being an incident caused by foreign elements.  So this country really has never been attacked and there is no terrorists that we need to fight against other than the those in Washington, D.C." (at 10:38 of the video)  http://www.911truth.org


  • Essay 6/06: "By late 2003, after seeing, on the internet, questions of the validity of our government's claims that 9/11 was the basis for both pre-emptive attacks, on Afghanistan then Iraq, and hearing that there were no Arabs on any of the passenger manifests; that the usually instant Air Force probe of flights going astray was never performed until much too late (could there have been a "stand-down"?); that tremendous Put options were placed on American and United Airlines stock yielding millions of dollars of profits to insiders who seemingly knew which Airlines were going to lose their aircraft, (none of which was ever investigated by the government, I became increasingly suspicious of the government's stories. ...

    With such powerful suspicions I decided to attend the first skeptics meeting in San Francisco, and from the information gleaned there, attended the follow-up meetings in Toronto, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and finally Chicago, each time learning of more significant facts which left me to conclude that, beyond all doubt, key members within our own government and key agencies created, even if they may not have performed, they planned and tactically perpetrated psy-op operation of 9/11 ..." http://www.unobserver.com

  • Analysis of the collapse of WTC Building 7, 11/18/05:

    "Conclusion: The observed collapse time of WTC 7 was 6.5 seconds. That is only half a second longer than it would have taken for the top of the building to fall to the ground in a vacuum, and half a second shorter than the falling time of an apple when air resistance is taken into account. ... The great speed of the collapse and the low value of the resistance factor strongly suggest controlled demolition."   http://www.saunalahti.fi

Anthony Szamboti, BS ME – Mechanical Design Engineer with over 20 years experience in the Aerospace and Communications industries.  Responsible for designing a large variety of structures required to perform in dynamic environments.
  • Letter to the Editor 3/18/07: "I am a mechanical engineer who grew up and went to school in the Philadelphia area.  I am also a U.S. Navy veteran.  I watched the Twin Towers fall live at work after a number of us went to the cafeteria, during a design review break, after hearing about the second plane hit.  Due to my training I have a very good appreciation for static and dynamic forces.  While watching the towers fall I had a lot of trouble understanding how they could have collapsed so quickly.  It turns out they came down at near free fall speed.  I also could never really understand the complete collapse of the third building which fell in NYC that day, WTC Bldg. 7, which was not hit by a plane. ...

    Since the events of Sept. 11, 2001 have been used to justify the two wars we are currently involved in and the overall "war on terror", I believe it is incumbent on all of us to scrutinize these events. It turns out that the 911 Commission Report does not even mention the collapse of Bldg. 7, nor do they mention the oral histories of the firefighters and emergency personnel taken down by the NY fire commissioner in late 2001 and early 2002. These oral histories were sealed by mayors Giuliani and Bloomberg and only released after three court attempts by the 911 victims families and the NY Times when the NY State Court of Appeals forced them to be released in August 2005. It turns out that in these oral histories there is quite a bit of mention of seeing, hearing, and feeling explosions in the towers while they were collapsing." http://www.phillyimc.org


  • Essay 5/17/07: "My intent here is to show that any honest and objective look at all of the theories, for the destruction of the twin towers, including the present government explanation, will cause one to realize that only the controlled demolition hypothesis is sustainable. I believe an honest look at the evidence will convince anyone that the controlled demolition hypothesis provides the best explanation for the complete collapses of the towers, as well as the damage to the buildings and objects surrounding them. The remarkable collapse of WTC7 seems to have had a separate cause in its own controlled demolition. " http://www.journalof911studies.com


  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition: 
    "After watching the twin tower collapses live I wondered to myself where all of the energy came from to cause such rapid collapses.

    At the time I did not know how the buildings were designed and also heard a few days later about a civil engineering professor saying there was a 30g dynamic load.  This was probably Dr. Bazant of Northwestern University.  I somewhat accepted this but still wondered.

    After hearing about Dr. Steven Jones bringing up issues with molten metal in the rubble in early 2006, I decided I should read his paper.  I found it on the Internet and after reading it started looking much harder at those collapses myself.

    Unfortunately, there is little doubt that the collapses were caused by controlled demolitions and it appears the aircraft impacts were causal ruses."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Essay 5/07: "The NIST enquiry into the destruction of the WTC towers purported to be an examination of the physical evidence. The final report includes commentary upon much of the physical evidence available from this examination but concentrates upon the time period prior to the onset of the collapse. The report does not go into much detail of the period of the collapse itself but instead relies upon the theoretical work of Dr. Bazant, to argue that once collapse was initiated then total collapse was inevitable. ...

    The short cut taken by NIST in relying upon this theoretical work, allowed them to avoid a continuation of their examination to include the physical evidence available from the collapse. Such a continuation would have shown many points of evidence which cannot be readily explained by a collapse whose initiation and progression was caused as a result of aircraft impact and subsequent fires. It does however allow the authors of the NIST Journal of 9/11 Studies 44 May 2007 report to pass responsibility to Dr. Bazant for this, the most important part of the investigation.

    A theory which can be so easily refuted is not an adequate foundation on which to rest the conclusions of a report on an event with such far reaching global consequences.

    But since NIST relies upon the work of Dr. Bazant to justify their assertion that collapse, once initiated, would inevitably progress to ground level, this refutation of Dr. Bazant's work and theory also serves as a refutation of this most crucial part of the NIST report." http://www.journalof911studies.com


  • Member: Scholars for 9/11 Truth  Association Statement: "Research proves the current administration has been dishonest about what happened in New York and Washington, D.C. The World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions and that the available relevant evidence casts grave doubt on the government's official story about the attack on the Pentagon."

  • Signatory: War Is Illegal Petition 12/07, which states:

    "Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1,000 billion dollars.

    The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalculable social and ecological consequences.

    Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.

    The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights.  [Bold added for emphasis by Editor of this website.]  Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.

    Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.

    Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.

    Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands: ...

    International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.  International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation."

    Analyses by Jim Hoffman, Kevin Ryan, and others have been very careful to state that the temps were not hot enough to even WEAKEN steel, LET ALONE "melt it", and quite specific that the OS [Official Story] is that of WEAKENING, not melting, at least after the first day or two. Your claim is the one made in the Scientific American article by Michael Shermer supposedly debunking "conspiracy stories" from a year ago, an article thoroughly debunked by Jim Hoffman

    Indeed, the very title of the SciAm article, Fahrenheit 2777, is based upon a falsehood, as 911research never used that figure, as claimed by Shermer.

    In fact, experiments done by Corus Construction in Britain were not capable of producing temps higher than 680 degrees F in fossil fuel fires set in steel and concrete structures, even with furniture and computers and....

    And the NIST investigation, also discussed by Hoffman in a home page essay, could not find any evidence of temps higher than 500 deg F, way below the 1170 level." http://www.mindfully.org

  • Statement to this website 3/23/07: "As a former General Electric Turbine engineering specialist and manager and then CEO of a turbine engineering company, I can guarantee that none of the high tech, high temperature alloy engines on any of the four planes that crashed on 9/11 would be completely destroyed, burned, shattered or melted in any crash or fire.  Wrecked, yes, but not destroyed.  Where are all of those engines, particularly at the Pentagon?  If jet powered aircraft crashed on 9/11, those engines, plus wings and tail assembly, would be there.

    Additionally, in my experience as an officer in NORAD as a Tactical Director for the Chicago-Milwaukee Air Defense and as a current private pilot, there is no way that an aircraft on instrument flight plans (all commercial flights are IFR) would not be intercepted when they deviate from their flight plan, turn off their transponders, or stop communication with Air Traffic Control.  No way!  With very bad luck, perhaps one could slip by, but no there's no way all four of them could!

    Finally, going over the hill and highway and crashing into the Pentagon right at the wall/ground interface is nearly impossible for even a small slow single engine airplane and no way for a 757. Maybe the best pilot in the world could accomplish that but not these unskilled "terrorists".

    Attempts to obscure facts by calling them a "Conspiracy Theory" does not change the truth.  It seems, "Something is rotten in the State."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition: 
    "I did a much simplified finite element analysis (FEA) of the 9-11 structures (Twin Towers and WTC 7 (Solomon Bldg.)) using ANSYS with the autodyn plug in. The speed of the falls and the downward force impulses that would have been created by the plane damage made many at UTA (University of Texas at Austin) suspicious of the 9-11 investigation report. It is my opinion that a more complete and thorough FEA survey than the one I performed will help erode the credibility of the 9-11 report of record, and provide political pressure to bring those responsible for the 9-11 murders to trial.

  • Presentation at the 2007 National Fire Protection Association World Fire Safety Conference "High Rise Buildings and Large Fires - Structural loads & thermal strain - What can happen" 6/4/07:

    "We will find that the government investigations into building collapse [at the World Trade Center] must consider controlled demolition as far more probable since fire effects collapse could never be duplicated. ...

       - The  concentric nearly freefall speed exhibited by each building was identical to most controlled demolitions.

       - The aircraft impact and fire severity effects were magnified in the NIST reports.

       - Collapse of WTC 1, 2 & 7 were not caused by fire effects. ...

    The NIST fire results proved that the fire loading in WTC was consistent with all building code assumptions and that the steel frame temperatures were not even close to the critical temperature of steel 593 degree Centigrade.  Analysis also showed that the fire in WTC 2 [South Tower] was almost under control and running out of fuel when it suddenly and totally failed in less than one hour.  Analysis further shows that the fire was oxygen starved hence not nearly at hot as other high rise fires.  The official reports and conclusions had  many technical distortions and obfuscations of the excellent research input in arriving at a flawed, politically driven conclusion of building performance."


  • Editor's note: WTC Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories.  It would have been the tallest building in 33 states.  Although it was not hit by an airplane, it completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.  However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."  Watch the collapse video here.  And six years after 9/11, the Federal government has yet to publish its promised final report that explains the cause of its collapse.


  • Presentation to the Northern California - Nevada Chapter, Society of Fire Protection Engineers 4/21/06:  "A steel frame building with the mass of WTC 1 or 2  could have partial structural collapse after aircraft impact only if the heat output was at least 100 times the heat release rate of the accountable fuel load and ventilation conditions in the south tower.

    This fire would need to involve every floor from impact floor to the roof with most windows broken and providing plenty of oxygen as in the Edificio Windsor fire in Madrid.

    This most severe fire would need to burn for at least 12 hours before loss of strength from heat; and thermal strains from expansion and contraction caused partial collapse."  http://www.ncnsfpe.org


  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I have collaborated with a research chemical engineer (P.E. in CA also) and he has worked with NIST reports that positively show that the jet fuel contributed very little to the duration of the fires and that in fact all the fires were very weak in historical perspective.  They were oxygen starved as evidenced by the black smoke.  If you dig deeper into the NIST reports they confirm that steel temperatures were low.

    I presented for continuing education credits at the NFPA World Safety Conference in Boston, MA 6/4/2007.  My presentation showed that all three WTC "collapses" have no resemblance to any previous high rise fire, full scale fire tests in the UK involving much higher steel temperatures, or computer simulations using finite element analysis.

    "Simply put, those buildings, especially WTC7, could not have fallen at near free-fall speed due to just (2) passenger planes hitting them.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:
    "The nearly free-fall velocity and the symmetrical path of collapse of Building 7, the confined footprint of the building's debris, the lack of any external force applied to the building's exterior are suspicious.  Coupled with these factors, a visual comparison of the collapse with that of buildings being leveled by professional, controlled demolition suggests that the cause officially attributed to the failure (weakening of the structural members due to fire) is exceedingly unlikely.  The true cause was likely an intentional, controlled demolition using explosive thermal charges typically employed for such purposes.

    The failures of WTC Buildings 1 and 2, likewise, are suspicious due to the inherent design strength of the buildings' cores to withstand aircraft impact; the relatively low temperature of a kerosene fire v. the temperature required for structural steel failure; the presence of subterranean molten steel, suggesting that a high-temperature cutting material was employed ("thermate" or a derivative); the debris cloud, which resembled that from an explosion; and like Building 7, the near free-fall velocity of collapse.

    Together these factors suggest that the cause of collapse was an intentional deployment of a professionally designed and executed demolition process utilizing systematically and remotely detonated, thermal cutting charges strategically situated throughout the buildings on key structural support members and their joints."  http://www.ae911truth.org

Ove Hundseid, MS ME – Principal Engineer.  10 years work experience in the offshore oil and gas industry.

  • Article Asking What Really Happened 9/11  12/14/07:

    "The official explanation goes against all laws of physics, say two mechanical engineers with honours. They want Norwegian politicians and Norwegian media to ask critical questions as to why the World Trade Centre towers 1, 2 and 7 collapsed.

    The two brothers are quite ordinary young men with a master degree in mechanical engineering from the Norwegian Institute of Technology, both working with processing within the petroleum industry; one working for StatoilHydro, the other for a consultancy company. When it comes to politics, this is what they say:

    "We belong to the right wing of Norwegian politics. The USA is a great country, and its people are nice and welcoming. Our criticism has nothing to do with politics, it’s simply about what’s right and wrong," Ove Hundseid says. ...

    The official explanation to the collapse of the Twin Towers claim the heat from the fire softened the steel, causing it to collapse. Jan and Ove Hundseid dismiss this claim.

    Kevin Ryan, working for the company that certified the steel, backs up their theory. He told the head of the NIST commission that if the core reached 450°C, the steel would still maintain 75 percent of its strength.

    Melting construction steel requires 1560°C, a heat not reached in an ordinary fire.

    "Judging by the black smoke rising from the buildings a while after the planes crashed into them, we can see there was no complete combustion," Jan says.

    "It’s like when after you choke a gas burner, soot comes out. Incomplete combustion indicates insufficient heat," Ove explains.

    Their point of view is confirmed by the official NIST report, which lists the highest temperature measured on an external beam at 280°C. ...

    So how could the Twin Towers have collapsed as fast as it did?

    Explosives must have been planted on the different floors, assume Jan and Ove Hundseid.

    As they watch the TV recordings of the collapse in slow motion, they notice minor explosions emerging horizontally from the walls far below and before the collapse has reached this level.

    "Some claim this is air being squeezed out, but to me it looks like the kind of explosions you see in controlled demolitions," Ove says.

    "We've also seen film clips showing the fire fighters who helped out after the attacks. Along with the reporters, they claim they heard a series of explosions in the basements under the towers. TV footage from the lobby in one of the towers shows that everything had been blown out, which could hardly be due to the impact of the plane hitting 80 floors above," Jan says." http://aftenbladet.no

    " 'Free fall' collapse of the buildings is not possible without use of explosives.

    As the towers collapsed they were turned in to concrete dust and relatively small pieces structural steel.  This combined with the almost free fall of the collapsed floors would have reduced the load on the lower floors that were intact, not increased it.  So,what caused them to collapse?"  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition: 
    "I concluded early on that the "official explanation", even before the 9/11 Commission report, did not add up. The first couple of items that I found suspicious were 1) the pulverizing of the concrete and 2) the free fall of the Towers in less than 10 seconds. Since 2001 I have read many books on the subject starting with "Painful Questions" by Eric Hufschmid, "The New Pearl Harbor" by David Ray Griffin (I saw him speak in Berkeley a year ago with Peter Phillips) and "Towers of Deception" by Barrie Zwicker, the latter of which included the CD "The Great Conspiracy." From the latter book I agreed with the author (and Richard Gage whom I heard on KPFA today) that there needs to be another, more thorough, investigation of the events of 9/11/2001.

    To add to my list of suspicious items, I saw a public showing of a CD, in 2004, where the focus was on experienced criminal investigators and how they were making the case about the rapid shipment of the steel from the Towers to India and China and that act was "destroying evidence at the scene of a crime."

    I worked at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center from 2001-2005. I was amazed how otherwise very savvy physicists and engineers didn't want to entertain the thought, or evidence, that the "official explanation" did not add up. They willingly accept the official "pancake theory." I have my own theory about their willingness to accept the official explanation. Several years ago I came across a term called "cognitive dissonance." The psychological description goes like this: the term describes an uncomfortable mental tension that arises from results from having two (or more) conflicting thoughts at the same time i.e. "The Towers falling was a bad, terrible event" and "My government is here to help me and they couldn't have had anything to do with the destruction of the Towers."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Originator of online petition, "Citizens Request for the FBI to Review 9-11"  9/11/07:  Mr. Meserlian's statement, "My goal is to have everyone in the 911 Truth movement send this petition to demand that the FBI do an acceptable job of investigating the scientifically based truth that pre-planned explosions caused the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7.

    Whatever differences exist between organizations in the 911 Truth Movement should be put aside in order to make this petition as effective as possible.  We all agree that hijacked planes and burning jet fuel did not cause the collapse of the Twin Towers and that the government's omission of the cause of Building 7's collapse proves this government will continue to cover-up the truth about what happened in order to protect those responsible.



    The job of the FBI is to first confirm our scientific evidence stated in the petition and to find those responsible for the crime of the century.

    To date the FBI refuses to communicate with me. Only by a mass mailing of this petition will we be able to force this "public servant" to start doing what we are paying them to do.http://www.911blogger.com

    The petition reads in part, "Based on references 2 and 3, [Editor's note: See actual petition for details.] between six and nine of the FBI’s alleged hijackers (reference 1) are still alive.  The FBI failed to look beyond the hijackers and has not yet investigated the scientific facts found in reference 3 and 4 that disprove the government’s 'pancake theory' explanation for how burning jet fuel caused the Twin Towers to collapse.  The FBI failed to explain why key testimony by eyewitnesses, that explosions occurred in the basement before the planes struck the twin towers, was omitted from [The 9/11 Commission Report]. ...

    Once the FBI confirms the evidence that pre-planted explosives were placed in the Twin Towers, we request that this evidence be provided to the Department of Justice."  http://www.voicesofsafety.com


  • Member: Scholars for 9/11 Truth  Association Statement: "Research proves the current administration has been dishonest about what happened in New York and Washington, D.C.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:
    "After seeing the video of building 7 I began investigating further. The more I looked, the more the government's story looked thin on details and engineering science. The rapid symmetrical collapse of all three buildings, particularly WTC 7 is implausible considering conservation of momentum. The South tower's top portion beginning to rotate away from the center and then disintegrating seems highly suspicious considering the inner-core matrix and hat truss structural integrity in a portion of the building not impacted by a plane. The immense pulverization of the concrete seems completely unlikely under a purely gravitational collapse. The presence of spherical, iron rich media, interspersed in the dust, molten metal in the basements and sulfidation of the areas where the beams were cut is highly suspicious considering it was only a jet fuel fire."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "The video and supporting information on the AE911truth website indicates that, beyond any reasonable doubt in my mind, there is something 'not right' about the official account of events concerning 911 and the subsequent failures of the three WTC buildings.

    The truth - leaving no stone unturned is all I would expect the people of the great nation of the USA to demand. I feel the omissions in the official reports submitted are scandalous, especially with all the associated loss of life. Having said that, due consideration should be given to the stressful and emotive nature of the events and the way this could have undermined the integrity/clarity of thought of the investigators.

    Now is the correct and appropriate time to re-open this case and do a proper and professional job, addressing the major points brought out in AE911truth would be an excellent start to this and allow everyone to move forward with the knowledge that all that can be done to prevent an event of this nature happening again in future.

    As pure engineers it is not for us to judge why this happened but rather analyze the technical facts accurately and objectively then make appropriate conclusions, being in a privileged position to be able to process the facts we have duty to do no less."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Essay What is 9/11 Truth? – The First Steps 8/06: "The first truth about 9/11 that no one can argue with is that the official story of what happened has been used to "change everything", meaning it has redefined all government priorities and international relations, and therefore the entire future of society.  The second, more troubling truth about 9/11 is that the official story is false.  Many people still don’t see this second truth clearly, however, so we must help them look again.  But it’s important to realize that 9/11 Truth is not just about promoting new conspiracy theories, it’s more fundamentally about questioning the one we've been given. ...

    The [9/11] Commission’s story has been shown to be entirely false due to lies of omission and distortion, and one significant event their report omitted entirely was the collapse of WTC 7. ...

    When you’re ready to accept the fact that we still have a vital need for the truth, a good way of examining the many important facts NIST ignored, and considering what could have really happened in New York City, is to read Steven Joneshistoric paper.  As for the rest of the story, the next outrageous conspiracy theory can wait until we've rid ourselves of the first false one.

    Our nation and the world have wagered everything on the Bush Administration’s story of what happened on September 11th. It is now clear that their story is entirely false, and this fact points toward a greater crime than the crimes of 9/11 themselves." http://www.journalof911studies.com

  • Co-author Extremely high temperatures during the World Trade Center destruction (with Steven E. Jones, Jeffrey Farrer, Gregory S. Jenkins, Frank Legge, Kevin Ryan, Daniel Farnsworth, and Crockett Grabbe) 1/08:

    "In an effort to better understand the conditions that led to complete collapses of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC 7, we apply scanning-electron- microscope and energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy methods to analyze the dust generated, with an emphasis on observed micro-spheres in the WTC dust. The  formation of molten spheres with high iron contents along with other species in the WTC dust required extremely high temperatures. Our results are compared with those of other laboratories. The temperatures required for the molten sphere-formation and evaporation of materials as observed in the WTC dust are significantly higher than temperatures associated with the burning of jet fuel and office materials in the WTC buildings. …

    The temperatures required for the observed spherule-formation and evaporation of materials observed in the WTC dust are significantly higher than temperatures reachable by the burning of jet fuel and office materials in the WTC buildings. The temperatures required to melt iron (1,538 °C) and molybdenum (2,623 °C), and to vaporize lead (1,740 °C) and aluminosilicates (~2,760°C), are completely out of reach of the fires in the WTC buildings (maximum 1,100 °C). We wish to call attention to this discrepancy: the official view implicating fires as the main cause for the ultimate collapses of the WTC Towers and WTC 7 is inadequate to explain this temperature gap and is therefore incomplete at best. …

    Thus, a thorough investigation which considers these data, showing extremely high temperatures and severe fragmentation in the formation of small metal-rich spheres during the WTC Towers destruction, is highly motivated. In particular, the repeatedly- delayed report on the destruction of WTC 7 on 9/11/2001 should address these striking facts." http://journalof911studies.com

  • Essay 9/8/06: "The official story claims that an explosion of the diesel fuel tanks in the basement caused the complete collapse of the [WTC 7] building. But the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) official report admits that:

    "The specifics of the fires in WTC7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time. Although the total diesel fuel on the premises contained massive potential energy, the best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence."

    The investigations into WTC7 leave some disturbing questions. Why does FEMA conclude it was fire and quit probing when it admits its theory is highly unlikely? Strangely, FEMA’s non-investigation is consistent with that of the official 9/11 Commission: the collapse of WTC7 is not mentioned once in the 571-page 9/11 Commission Report. ...

    The compelling physical evidence for the controlled demolition of WTC7, the US government’s refusal to properly investigate, and the surprising omission of this issue from the front page of our newspapers is alarming to say the least. ... Because of the implications of a cover-up, we ought to seriously reevaluate the recent changes in our foreign policy that stemmed from 9/11: the so-called War on Terror, and our occupation of Afghanistan. Moreover, we need to recognize that the mainstream media is obstructing the truth about WTC7 and ask ourselves, why?" http://911truthkingston.blogspot.com

    "From the time of the event, I have questioned the collapse WTC-7 and its relationship to WTC-1 & -2.  Having witnessed several intentional demolitions of major structures, the similarity to the three WTC buildings coming down was striking.

    At the time, I recall the TV reporting by BBC and other networks saying the WTC-7 structure had fallen when it had not, and then captured on video falling 20+ minutes later which conveys the message the event was planned and reported via a news release from a source yet unidentified, to me.

    Also, the lateral explosive bursts coming from the descending floors of WTC-1 & -2 are most suspicious as I understand the structures were designed to withstand an impact by a Boeing 707 aircraft.  I suspect WTC-7 was the staging center for the persons involved with setting the explosive charges."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:

    "Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.

    They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.

    Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.

    We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.

    We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media."


  • Video 9/11/04: "A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash.  It’s impossible. … There’s a second group of facts having to do with the cover up. … Taken together these things prove that high levels of our government don’t want us to know what happened and who’s responsible.…

    Who gained from 9/11?  Who covered up crucial information about 9/11?  And who put out the patently false stories about 9/11 in the first place?  When you take those three things together, I think the case is pretty clear that it’s highly placed individuals in the administration with all roads passing through Dick Cheney.

    I think the very kindest thing that we can say about George W. Bush and all the people in the U.S. Government that have been involved in this massive cover-up, the very kindest thing we can say is that they were aware of impending attacks and let them happen.  Now some people will say that’s much too kind, however even that is high treason and conspiracy to commit murder."  http://video.go

    We cannot let the pursuit of justice fail.  Those of us in the military took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic".  Just because we have retired does not make that oath invalid, so it is not just our responsibility, it is our duty to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 and bring them to justice, no matter how hard it is, how long it takes, or how much we have to suffer to do it.

    We owe it to those who have gone before us who executed that same oath, and who are doing the same thing in Iraq and Afghanistan right now.  Those of us who joined the military and faithfully executed orders that were given us had to trust our leaders.  The violation and abuse of that trust is not only heinous, but ultimately the most accurate definition of treason!"

  • Audio interview with Rob Balsamo 6/25/07:  Regarding the 9/11 Commission's account of the impact of Flight 77 at the Pentagon and discrepancies with the actual Flight Data Recorder information:

    "After I did my own analysis of it, it's obvious that there's discrepancies between the two stories;  between the 9/11 Commission and the flight data recorder information.  And I think that's where we really need to focus a lot of our attention to get the help that we need in order to put pressure on government agencies to actually do a real investigation of 9/11.  And not just from a security standpoint, but from even an aviation standpoint, like any accident investigation would actually help the aviators out by finding reasons for things happening. ...

    The things that really got my attention were the amount of descent rate that you had to have at the end of the flight, of Flight 77, that  would have made it practically impossible to hit the light poles. [Editor's note: Destruction of the light poles near the Pentagon by Flight 77 was stated in the 9/11 Commission Report.]  Essentially it would have been too high at that point to the point of impact where the main body of the airplane was hitting between the first and second floor of the Pentagon. ...

    You know, I'd ride my bike to the Pentagon.  So, you know I'm a little bit familiar with that area.  [Editor's note: Lt. Col. Latas served as a Weapons Requirement Officer at the Pentagon.]  But, you know, that kind of descent rate it would have been impossible essentially for the results that we see physically from what the flight data recorder was recording.  Like I say, that's an area that I think deserves explanation. ...

    The ground track [the path of the airplane] is off from the 9/11 Commission.  There are several things that can be brought up but it's been a while since I've seen the film and looked at the flight data recorder.  And I can't think of all the discrepancies I saw, but there are several there.  [The film he refers to is the video documentary, Pandora's Black Box, Chapter 2, Flight of American 77.] ...

    And I think that we Americans need to demand further investigation just to clarify the discrepancies that you've [Pilots for 9/11 Truth] found.  And I think that we need to be getting on the phone with our Congressmen and women and letting them know that we don't accept the excuses that we're hearing now, that we want true investigators to do a true investigation." http://video.google.com

  • Statement to this website 6/11/07:  "It is clear extraordinarily powerful explosives were used to destroy the WTC Twin Towers.

    Careful scrutiny of video of the collapse of the South Tower (WTC2) shows the upper segment (above the airplane strike) listing, then dropping, then disintegrating or pulverizing.  There was a massive explosion near ground level immediately before those events.  Using only common sense and reflection, the tilt-then-drop sequence shows the building's central structural steel core (including stairwells, elevator shafts, utility conduits, etc., and mainly, 47 thick-walled 2'X4' box section steel columns) had by some agency been made insubstantial and unable to bear weight.  Putting that together with the ground level blast and the subsequent pulverization it is clear very powerful explosives had to have been in play.  The airplane strike was a mere smokescreen.

    Understanding the mechanism of the collapse leads to additional important questions.  Who planted the explosives?  What kind of explosives were used?  When were they planted?  And for what reasons would someone destroy not only the Twin Towers, but all the buildings in the World Trade Center?

    Simple logic requires of a credible account of the Sept. 11 events that it explain ALL details clearly shown in documentary footage, together with all other known facts e.g. that alleged ring-leader Mohamed Atta had been identified by the Department of Defense antiterrorist program known as Able Danger more than a year prior to 9/11.  The Official Story does not even come close to meeting that standard."


  • Editor's note: The 9/11 Commission Report asserts that only three of the alleged hijackers were known to U.S. intelligence agencies prior to 9/11; Nawaf al-Hazmi, Salem al-Hazmi, and Khalid al-Mihdar.  There is no mention in the Report that the names and photographs of alleged hijacker Marwan al-Shehhi and alleged ring-leader Mohamed Atta had been identified by the Department of Defense antiterrorist program known as Able Danger more than a year prior to 9/11 and that they were known to be affiliates of al-Qaida. Able Danger also identified Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdar.  http://www.foxnews.com See also Rep. Curt Weldon , Louis Freeh, Capt. Scott J. PhillpottLt. Col.

  • Article 8/12/06: "The sudden collapse, the seamless downward cascade of the crumbling World Trade Center towers planted doubt in Bruce Henry's mind.

    The way the buildings fell didn't seem right. The implosion-like plummeting, the absence of central beams and girders refusing to fall, the speed of the collapse -- all raised suspicion for the retired mathematics professor from Worcester.

    "That was the seed," said Henry, who taught at Worcester State College.  "To me it seems so transparent with a minimal amount of reflection that there's something catawampus," or cockeyed, with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    Finally, he came to a shocking conclusion that runs counter to the accepted history of America's darkest day:  The towers, he believes, "were brought down by planted explosives." http://www.information


  • Member: Scholars for 9/11 Truth  Association Statement: "Research proves the current administration has been dishonest about what happened in New York and Washington, D.C. The World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions and that the available relevant evidence casts grave doubt on the government's official story about the attack on the Pentagon."

  • Article The New York Observer 2/15/04:  "Ms. Schiavo sat in on the commission's hearing on aviation security on 9/11 and was disgusted by what it left out.  "In any other situation, it would be unthinkable to withhold investigative material from an independent commission," she told this writer.  "There are usually grave consequences.  But the commission is clearly not talking to everybody or not telling us everything." ...

    The timeline that is most disturbing belongs to the last of the four suicide missions -- United Airlines Flight 93, later presumed destined for the U.S. Capitol, if not the White House.  Huge discrepancies persist in basic facts, such as when it crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside near Shanksville.  The official impact time according to NORAD, the North American Air Defense Command, is 10:03 a.m.  Later, U.S. Army seismograph data gave the impact time as 10:06:05.  The FAA gives a crash time of 10:07 a.m.  And The New York Times, drawing on flight controllers in more than one FAA facility, put the time at 10:10 a.m.

    Up to a seven-minute discrepancy?  In terms of an air disaster, seven minutes is close to an eternity.  The way our nation has historically treated any airline tragedy is to pair up recordings from the cockpit and air-traffic control and parse the timeline down to the hundredths of a second.  But as Mary Schiavo points out, "We don't have an NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) investigation here, and they ordinarily dissect the timeline to the thousandth of a second."    http://www.observer.com/node/48805


  • Press conference statement 6/10/02: "First of all, the question is not 'What they should have known?'  And I believe I can show you in just a few seconds the question is, 'What did they know?'  And believe me, they knew a lot.

    The second thing to emphasize is that in every single aviation disaster, whether there was intervening criminal activity or not, in every single one in the course of modern aviation history it has been followed by, not only were it necessary, a criminal investigation, but also a National Transportation Safety investigation into what went wrong in the aviation system.  And the reason for that is so that it never happens again.   [Editor's Note: The NTSB never conducted full investigations of the four plane crashes on 9/11.  The NTSB's official position for each plane involved on 9/11 is, "The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Safety Board provided requested technical assistance to the FBI, and this material generated by the NTSB is under the control of the FBI. The Safety Board does not plan to issue a report or open a public docket."]

    This is the first time, and this is the worst disaster, but this is the first time that families have been attempted to be silenced through a special fund, which I believe is about silence more so than about money.  Why? ...

    And from my rounds on the Hill to find these facts and others, I found that the airlines approached members of Congress and the Senate to get their bailout and their immunity and their protection starting on 9/11.  They sent their first lobbyist up to the Hill on 9/11.  And this has been confirmed to me personally by Senators and members of Congress.  Now to me that's very shocking but to me it raises another question, why?  Why did they have to rush to the Hill to change the law? ...

    So in the wake of September 11, 2001, when we heard the carriers and governments alike saying, “Oh, no one could have foreseen this. No one knew that this was coming.  No one knew that there was any risk like this in the world,” is absolutely false. ...

    In the last thirty years we have had 682 hijackings.  682.  Here's an interesting statistic. When we had the United States saying, 'Oh, we couldn't have known this.'

    In the Q&A section:  "We did have another plot in the United States to hijack a plane and crash it into a building.  And, by the way, we had a government cost/benefit analysis of this very same scenario.   The only problem with this government cost/benefit analysis was they used a 737 and figured it would be one plane crashed into a building.  So I do believe that the government certainly knew that these things were possible.  In fact it had been attempted before and the information was out there.  But we do tend to get, as a government, tend to get bogged down in the cost/benefit analysis.

    And I, for one, happen to agree that the warnings were very fairly specific.  June 22nd FAA issued a bulletin that had concerns about terrorism.  July 2nd FAA told the airlines the man involved in the millennium plot had intention of using explosives in terminal buildings.  July 18th the FAA issued a bulletin that said there are terrorist threats and we urge you to use caution.  July 31 that there are going to be terror groups planning and training for hijacking.   Use caution. And finally August 16th disguised weapons.

    So I think the warning signs were not only ample but specific and there was previous attacks where planes were going to be used to crash into buildings.  So only the government can probably answer now at this point why they didn't take them seriously."

  • Editor's note: Mary Schiavo's statements of fact that a.) 682 hijackings of commercial airplanes had occurred in the 30 years prior to 9/11, on average one every 16 days, b.) the US government was previously aware of "another plot in the United States to hijack a plane and crash it into a building", c.) the government had conducted cost / benefit analysis of the scenario of terrorists crashing Boeing 737's into buildings, and d.) recitation of the numerous FAA terrorism warnings in the two months prior to 9/11 demonstrates that no imagination was needed to envision the events of 9/11, which is in direct contradiction to 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean's description of the main cause of 9/11 "... this was a failure of policy, management, capability, and, above all, a failure of imagination."

  • Essay 6/12/07: "So, why did the towers collapse? By now, almost six years later, we should have a definitive answer, but we do not.  We have the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) study, the Federal Emergency Management Agency Building Performance Assessment (FEMA BAP);  We have the Silverstein reports, we have the 9/11 Commission Report; we have the National Institute of Standards& Technology (NIST) reports and ARUP commentary.

    Although these reports vary in details, and in some cases contradict one another, what we finally have is the Official Story, quoted verbatim by the US media: the impact of commercial aircraft, and the ensuing fire caused by aircraft fuel led to the collapse of WTC 1 and 2, the North and South World Trade Center Towers, on September 11 2001. The truth of the Official Story has never been proven, but has been implicitly assumed by all of the "Official" investigation reports." http://www.seattle911visibilityproject.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:
    "I woke up to the problems with the building collapses in January 2004 when I stumbled upon a web site that showed evidence that they were brought down with controlled demolition.  It is clear that the buildings had help to bring them down.  The collapses of WTC towers 1 and 2 were obviously far more energetic events than can be explained by some sort of progressive gravitational collapse initiated by a simple weakening of the structure by hydrocarbon fire.  Here I am thinking of the tremendous dust clouds (pyroclastic flows) and the nearly free fall speed. Building 7, not hit by a plane, appears to have been a classic controlled demolition, and perfectly symmetrically executed."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Essay Missing Wreckage 9/2/06:  "There is clear (negative) evidence that no hijacked airplanes were involved in 911:

    1. There should be considerable amount of airplane wreckage found at the crash sites but there was very little.

    2. No damaged parts of the alleged four airplanes involved in 911 have been found anywhere at or in vicinity of the crash sites.  The authorities have not presented any such identified parts as evidence of an airplane crash at the various sites.

    3. Some alleged airplane parts were actually found in vicinity of crash sites but apparently do not belong to the airplanes suggested to have been involved in the events.

    4. The proposal by the authorities that most wreckage parts were destroyed due to fire and explosion is incorrect as there was not enough energy (J) involved in alleged crashes to 'evaporate' complete airplanes and wreckage parts.  No airplane in history has ever 'evaporated' at a crash.

    5. There have been 10,000's of airplane crashes in the world since aviation took off around 1910 and at every crash there was plenty of wreckage.  911 is the first and only time when four airplanes have crashed on the same day without leaving any wreckage ... at all!  What a coincidence! ..." http://911blogger.com

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:  "After performing some in-depth research on this subject, I have come to the conclusion that no commercial airplanes impacted the two WTC Towers.  No commercial plane impacted the Pentagon.  No commercial aircraft buried itself in Pennsylvania terra firma.  The utter public silence from observing the many clips of high energy materials being ejected from the other side of WTC #2, from most probably a projectile with DU-hardening nose characteristics is deafening.  Further, the two WTC Towers were explosive demolitions, without any doubts.  WTC #7 crumbled under a classic demolition. 

    Lastly, a 0.1 inch aluminum skinned airframe traveling at its max. velocity for its flight regime and angle of attack, would NOT slice through high tensile steel like butter with this steel having a thickness between 0.25 and 0.75 inch and a length of about 13 inches.  Calculations from other sources reveal that the airframe would lose its forward momentum when impacting steel of only 0.8 inches.  If these projectiles were commercial aircraft, we should have seen the entire impact explosion of the airframe only at the impact wall with discernable debris landing at the base of each Tower."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "I was Senior Project Design Engineer in charge of the design of the electrical systems for the WTC Complex in NY.

    Employed by the consulting and engineering firm, Joseph R. Loring & Associates, Inc., I was also a licensed Professional Engineer and was directly associated with ongoing projects at WTC for some 35 years before retiring in mid 1997.

    Though an electrical engineer by trade, I was also very familiar with the structures and their conceptual design parameters.

    On September 11, I watched the live TV broadcast of the progressive collapse of the World Trade Towers with disbelief, as the mass and strength of the structure should have survived the localized damage caused by the planes and burning jet fuel.

    I viewed the presentation of Richard Gage and other related material, which compels me to believe that the fuel and planes alone did not bring the Towers down.  I, therefore, support the proposal to form an international group of professionals to investigate all plausible causes for the virtual freefall and the almost total destruction of the WTC structures."  http://www.ae911truth.org
