Pilots and Aviation Professionals
Question the 9/11 Commission Report

Many pilots and aviation professionals 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.

Listed below are statements by more than 250 pilots and aviation professionals that contradict or are critical of the 9/11 Commission Report.  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 responsibility for air traffic safety demonstrate 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 commercial or military pilot or aviation professional who has concerns about the 9/11 Commission Report and would like your comment added to this website, please contact me.

Rob Balsamo
– Commercial airline pilot.  Co-founder, Pilots for 9/11 Truth.  4,000+ total hours flown.
  • Statement to this website 7/23/07:  "In May 2006, I was watching Glenn Beck’s show on CNN. The Department of Defense had just released the infamous "5 frames" of stop-action video of the pentagon attack. Beck showed the frames and commented, "You can see a 757 in 10 seconds flat!  Either that or a naked Michael Moore heading for the buffet!  This should put all those conspiracy theories to rest".  While watching it, I'm thinking to myself, "I can’t see any 757.”  And I'm asking myself, “Are there still unresolved questions regarding 9/11?"

    So I started poking around on the Internet trying to find anything I can to back up the government’s story because I didn't want to believe our government might have had something to do with 9/11.

    Early on, I came across Operation Northwoods.  It blew me away that elements of our government had seriously planned acts of terrorism inside the United States to justify invading Cuba. Consider that 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean had said, "The greatest failure of 9/11 was lack of imagination", yet just under 40 years prior, elements of our own government imagined perpetrating such an event!

    In late summer of 2006, I co-founded the group Pilots for 9/11 Truth, to more formally conduct research on the aviation-related aspects of 9/11.  In August 2006, Pilots for 9/11 Truth received from the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) a copy of the Flight Data Recorder data of Flight 77, which, according to the official account, hit the Pentagon.

    We analyzed the data and announced our conclusion on 3/26/07 that "The information provided by the NTSB does not support the 9/11 Commission Report of American Airlines Flight 77 impact with the Pentagon."  Much more information about this can be found in our video documentary and our press release.

    So now, a year after I began looking into the events of 9/11 and having devoted a lot of time and effort researching those events, I'm frustrated because we haven't been able to find anything to confirm the government's story.  And what's worse is that the FBI and NTSB refuse to even discuss with us the many obvious problems we found in the Flight 77 Flight Data Recorder.

    I continue to work with my colleagues at Pilots for 9/11 Truth, to grow the organization and to continue our research into the aviation-related aspects of 9/11, looking for confirmation of the government’s story."


  • Audio interview by Mike Chambers 2/6/07: "I just recently -- quote, unquote -- woke up back in May [2006] due to a video that I saw on mainstream media telling me that I could see a 757 in ten seconds flat going across the Pentagon lawn.  And from there I did my research  and here I am now ... with Pilotsfor911Truth.org.  When I started my research  I said to myself, I am going to do everything in my power to figure out and back up the official story, the government's story -- the government fairy tale, I now call it -- so I can have faith and believe in my government.  We have gotten to the point where I haven't been able to find anything to confirm the government's story.

    Now, we received the flight data information through the NTSB back in August [2006]. ... The files that we originally received from the NTSB shows the aircraft too high to have hit the light poles.  They can see that on Pilotsfor911Truth.org Full Analysis.  And of course in our film Pandora's Black Box Chapter 2. ...

    The flight data recorder raw file that we have just decoded ... it's still showing too high for the Pentagon. ... It shows the radar altimeter at 273 feet.  That means 273 feet above the ground. OK?  The Pentagon only gets up to 77 feet." http://www.tnrlive.com

  • Essay Where is the Wreckage of UAL 93? 2/15/06:  "I most certainly and honestly believe, that sometime in the near future, it will become common knowledge that the events of 9/11 were an "inside job" designed, engineered and committed by a very large and "in control" rogue element within our United States federal government, used as a false cause, a pretext, a lie, to invade two natural resource rich foreign countries, to further pursue and expand an empire, to change the borders of the Middle East countries, and as part of the war on terror, or more appropriately, the war on freedom, was used to frighten the American people so they would allow the infringement of their civil liberties and constitutional rights, to allow for closer monitoring and further oppression." http://www.rumormillnews.com


  • Letter to the Air Line Pilots Association 10/3/06:  "I have been a proud member of the Air Line Pilots Association for almost 16 years ... Throughout my piloting career, I have tried to uphold the published ALPA Canons of professional airmanship, safety and comfort of passengers and crew ...

    Because of the abundant resources available within ALPA, including the ALPA Accident Investigation and Engineering and Air Safety Committees, on behalf of Professor Jim Fetzer, PhD., Scholars for 911 Truth co-founder, I as an ALPA member and Associate member of Scholars for 911Truth, am writing to you, the ALPA National Officers and Executive Vice-Presidents to encourage your participation and partnership with Scholars, an organization of which I am also very proud to be a member. This is an open letter and invitation to join Scholars for 911 Truth. I firmly believe that with the resources within ALPA, its participation in the work of Scholars would help in the establishment and documentation of a more accurate account and correct historical record of September the 11th, and the corrective political measures required to be taken to restore our republic and beloved country and help to heal her deep wounds associated with 911."

  • 9/11 documentary video 9/11 Ripple Effect 7/4/07: "My initial reaction to September the 11th was that it was as advertised; that these aircraft had been hijacked; that it was a big terrorist operation; that we were attacked by Muslim extremists. I kind of just believed the initial story. I was in a state of shock.

    As reports came out through the news and some alternative news services that I had been subscribing to there was some things that were reported by credible people at these accident sites that did not agree with my professional training and my background."

  • Audio interview with Rob Balsamo 3/9/07:  Regarding the Flight Data Recorder information for Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon, released by the NTSB

    John Lear:  There's a lot things in that tape that came up, that if you're a pilot, you say, "Hey, wait a minute.  That's bull****.   That could never happen in a million years." ...

    Rob Balsamo:  What did you think about 9/11 after you saw it?

    John Lear:  Well, you know, five minutes after it happened, I knew that it was a scam. ... No Boeing 757 ever crashed into the Pentagon.  No Boeing 757 ever crashed at Shanksville. ... And no Arab hijacker, ever in a million years, ever flew into the World Trade Center.  And if you got 30 minutes I'll tell you exactly why he couldn't do it the first time.  Now, I'd have trouble doing it the first time. 

    Rob Balsamo:  Yeah, same here.

    John Lear:  Maybe if I had a couple tries to line up a few building, I could have done it.  But certainly not the first time and certainly not at 500 or 600 miles an hour.

    Rob Balsamo:  Yeah, as a matter of fact, one of our members, he was a 737 Check Airman.  He was in the sim at the time on September 11 and right after it happened they tried to duplicate it in the simulator and they said they couldn't do it.  They were trying to hit the Towers and they couldn't do it. ...

    John Lear:  Yeah, it would be an amazing feat of airmanship. ...

    John Lear:  People ask, you know, why do I think that 9/11 was a scam.  They say, "Why would the government do that?" And I said, there's three basic reasons.  Number 1; they wanted to take away all our liberties and they had to pose a threat to do that.  Number 2; they wanted a reason to go into Afghanistan. ...  Then the third thing was we had to have a pretext for going into Iraq. http://video.google.com

Capt. Russ Wittenberg, U.S. Air Force
– Retired commercial pilot.  Flew for Pan Am and United Airlines for 35 years.  Aircraft flown: Boeing 707, 720, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, and 777.  30,000+ total hours flown.  Had previously flown the actual two United Airlines aircraft that were hijacked on 9/11 (Flight 93, which impacted in Pennsylvania, and Flight 175, the second plane to hit the WTC). Former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot with over 100 combat missions.
  • Video interview 9/11 Ripple Effect 8/07: "I flew the two actual aircraft which were involved in 9/11; the Fight number 175 and Flight 93, the 757 that allegedly went down in Shanksville and Flight 175 is the aircraft that's alleged to have hit the South Tower. I don't believe it's possible for, like I said, for a terrorist, a so-called terrorist to train on a [Cessna] 172, then jump in a cockpit of a 757-767 class cockpit, and vertical navigate the aircraft, lateral navigate the aircraft, and fly the airplane at speeds exceeding it's design limit speed by well over 100 knots, make high-speed high-banked turns, exceeding -- pulling probably 5, 6, 7 G's.  And the aircraft would literally fall out of the sky.  I couldn't do it and I'm absolutely positive they couldn't do it."  http://americanbuddhist.net


  • Article 7/17/05:  "The government story they handed us about 9/11 is total B.S. plain and simple." … Wittenberg convincingly argued there was absolutely no possibility that Flight 77 could have "descended 7,000 feet in two minutes, all the while performing a steep 280 degree banked turn before crashing into the Pentagon's first floor wall without touching the lawn."… 

    "For a guy to just jump into the cockpit and fly like an ace is impossible - there is not one chance in a thousand," said Wittenberg, recalling that when he made the jump from Boeing 727's to the highly sophisticated computerized characteristics of the 737's through 767's it took him considerable time to feel comfortable flying." http://www.arcticbeacon.com


  • Audio Interview 9/16/04: Regarding Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon.  "The airplane could not have flown at those speeds which they said it did without going into what they call a high speed stall.  The airplane won’t go that fast if you start pulling those high G maneuvers at those bank angles. … To expect this alleged airplane to run these maneuvers with a total amateur at the controls is simply ludicrous...

    It’s roughly a 100 ton airplane.  And an airplane that weighs 100 tons all assembled is still going to have 100 tons of disassembled trash and parts after it hits a building.  There was no wreckage from a 757 at the Pentagon. … The vehicle that hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77.  We think, as you may have heard before, it was a cruise missile." http://911underground.com

  • Statement to this website 8/20/07: "I started questioning the Sept 11, 2001 “story” only days after the event.  It just didn't make any sense to me.  How could a steel and concrete building collapse after being hit by a Boeing 767?  Didn't the engineers design it to withstand a direct hit from a Boeing 707, approximately the same size and weight of the 767?  The evidence just didn't add up. ...

    At the Pentagon, the pilot of the Boeing 757 did quite a feat of flying.  I have 6,000 hours of flight time in Boeing 757’s and 767’s and could not have flown it the way the flight path was described.

    I was also a Navy fighter pilot and Air Combat Instructor, U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School and have experience flying low altitude, high speed aircraft.  I could not have done what these beginners did.  Something stinks to high heaven!

    Where is the damage to the wall of the Pentagon from the wings?  Where are the big pieces that always break away in an accident?  Where is all the luggage?  Where are the miles and miles of wire, cable, and lines that are part and parcel of any large aircraft?  Where are the steel engine parts?  Where is the steel landing gear?  Where is the tail section that would have broken into large pieces?

    I also personally knew American Airlines Captain “Chick” Burlingame, who was the captain of Flight 77 which allegedly hit the Pentagon, and I know he would not have given up his airplane to crazies!

    And at the Shanksville Pennsylvania impact site, where is any of the wreckage?!!!  Of all the pictures I have seen, there is only a hole!  Where is any piece of a crashed airplane?  Why was the area cordoned off, and no inspection allowed by the normal accident personnel?  Where is any evidence at all?

    When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official “story”. ...

    Every question leads to another question that has not been answered by anyone in authority. This is just the beginning as to why I don’t believe the official “story” and why I want the truth to be told." Link to full statement

  • Essay Debunking the Debunkers 2/14/05: "For over a decade now, the PTB [Powers That Be] have used an odd vehicle to do their debunking on a variety of issues - Popular Mechanics Magazine (a Hearst publication).  I suppose they are targeting the back-yard mechanic and auto-enthusiast crowd, who are often prone to accepting conspiracy facts and theories.

    In the March 2005 issue, PM magazine singled out 16 issues or claims of the 9/11 skeptics that point to government collusion and systematically attempted to debunk each one.  Of the 16, most missed the mark and almost half were straw men arguments - either ridiculous arguments that few conspiracists believed or restatements of the arguments that were highly distorted so as to make them look weaker than they really were. ...

    I am one of those who claim there are factual arguments pointing to conspiracy, and that truth is not served by taking cheap shots at those who see gaping flaws in the government story ...

    There is significant evidence that the aircraft impacts did not cause the collapse [of the Twin Towers] ...

    The issues of the penetration hole [at the Pentagon] and the lack of large pieces of debris simply do not jive with the official story, but they are explainable if you include the parking lot video evidence that shows a huge white explosion at impact. This cannot happen with an aircraft laden only with fuel.  It can only happen in the presence of high explosives." http://www.rense.com

  • 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

  • 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."

  • Essay: "In all my years of direct and indirect participation, I never witnessed nor even heard of an aircraft loss, where the wreckage was accessible, that prevented investigators from finding enough hard evidence to positively identify the make, model, and specific registration number of the aircraft -- and in most cases the precise cause of the accident. ...

    The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that all potential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from public view. …

    With all the evidence readily available at the Pentagon crash site, any unbiased rational investigator could only conclude that a Boeing 757 did not fly into the Pentagon as alleged. Similarly, with all the evidence available at the Pennsylvania crash site, it was most doubtful that a passenger airliner caused the obvious hole in the ground and certainly not the Boeing 757 as alleged. …

    As painful and heartbreaking as was the loss of innocent lives and the lingering health problems of thousands more, a most troublesome and nightmarish probability remains that so many Americans appear to be involved in the most heinous conspiracy in our country's history."   http://www.physics911.net

  • Statement: "Almost nothing in the "official" 9-11 account proves to be factual.  For all the purported U.S. failures; no one was punished - most were rewarded.

    At the 9-11 Pentagon, the world witnessed a fire and suggestions of explosions.  Airport fire trucks rushed to the scene of a purported “crash” site - without discovering an airplane.  There is no viable evidence of burning jet fuel.  Just the statement, "They say it was an airplane."  The pre-collapse Pentagon section showed no ‘forward-moving’ damage.  The damage is at the wrong location.  The expected “crash” damage doesn't exist.  There was no particular physical evidence of the expected "wreckage."  There was no tail, no wings; no damage consistent with a B-757 “crash.”  Even the Pentagon lawn was undamaged!  The geometry of the day certifies the ‘official’ account as a blatant lie.  The few aircraft parts discovered at the Pentagon are highly suspect.  The dramatic "witness" accounts lack supporting physical evidence - with the exception of those who described the incredibly few aircraft parts.  All images show that the building wasn't aggressively searched for survivors.  Lacking any 'expected' clues, one is left to ask "Who said this was an airplane crash, in the first place?"

    The purported Flight 93 crash site in Pennsylvania is quite similar.

    Since 9-11, it was discovered that there was no expected Air Force fighter response.  By all appearances, the expected fighters were held back from interfering with; or witnessing the unfolding events.   The fighter onboard electronics would have not only offered an intercept target, but would have displayed and recorded the forbidden reality of the day.   Of particular interest would be the fate of two obviously missing airliners.

    The alleged hijackers apparently were not on board the aircraft!  Their names were not on any passenger manifests - yet shown.  The ‘names’ of at least seven of the alleged hijackers were discovered to be still alive - with no questions being asked about whom the real hijackers were.  No attempt has been made to discover the “known terrorists.”  There were at least four hijackers – all evidence pointing to their being highly qualified jet pilots - not zealous Arab wannabes.

    As the names of “al Qaeda” and “bin Laden” continue to be pandered in the shadows of ‘terrorism,' journalists continue to discover that the bin Laden family was given the treatment of royalty, immediately following 9-11. ...

    The legacy of 9-11 is that America - and its Constitution - is far more threatened from the White House, than the caves of Afghanistan."  http://home.comcast.net/~skydrifter/exp.htm

Dennis Cimino – Commercial pilot rating for over 25 years.  Systems Engineer.  Navy Combat Systems Specialist (Radar, ECM, UHF/VHF/HF COMMS., GPS, INS, SATNAV, cryptographic communications). Millimeter wave RADAR and countermeasures expert since 1973. Two patents held for Doppler RADAR. Former Flight Data Recorder Engineer, Smiths Aerospace.
  • Statement to this website 6/3/07: "I have been a licensed pilot with a commercial rating, multi-engine, IFR, since 1981.  Prior to that I served as an Electronic Warfare / Electronic Signals Intelligence (EW ELINT) specialist in the U.S. Navy, with many 'first time' signal intercepts in the national (NSA) sigint database.  Since I left the Navy in 1979, I have been heavily involved in DoD weapons system testing and certification. I have held high level clearances most of my career.

    There is no doubt in my mind that what transpired on September 11, 2001, was an inside job carried out by members of our own government.  Based on my experience as a commercial pilot, I do not believe that it's possible for four large commercial airliners to have gone off course for as long as they did and as far as they did and were not intercepted by Air Force pilots, without the explicit cooperation of highly placed people in the military and government.

    I also do not believe that both of the WTC Twin Towers could have been identically pulverized and that both identically collapsed into their own footprints as a result of a single airplane impact and the fire from a few thousand gallons of jet fuel.  I also do not believe that WTC Building 7, which wasn't even hit by an airplane, could have entirely collapsed as a result of a few fires, particularly in a manner that is entirely consistent with a controlled demolition.

    Additionally, the visible evidence at the Pentagon is inconsistent with an impact by a Boeing 757.  There was virtually no debris from the 80-ton airplane, except a few small pieces that were picked up by hand.  Nor was there any evidence of holes in the building that surely would have resulted from the impacts of the two 6-ton RB-211 engines on the alleged Boeing 757.  Similarly, at Shanksville, PA, the small gash in the earth is far too small to have resulted from the impact of a Boeing 757.

    All of these factors have convinced me that our government was fully onboard with what took place on 9/11. The official account of 9/11 is absolute B.S.  We, as citizens of this great country, need to do research, question the government, and demand a full, impartial investigation to determine what actually took place that day."


  • 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 to this website 4/10/07: "I knew within hours of the attacks on 9/11/2001 that it was an inside job.  Based on my 11-year experience as an FAA Air Traffic Controller in the busy Northeast corridor, including hundreds of hours of training, briefings, air refuelings, low altitude bombing drills, being part of huge military exercises, daily military training exercises, interacting on a routine basis directly with NORAD radar personnel, and based on my own direct experience dealing with in-flight emergency situations, including two instances of hijacked commercial airliners, I state unequivocally;  There is absolutely no way that four large commercial airliners could have flown around off course for 30 to 60 minutes on 9/11 without being intercepted and shot completely out of the sky by our jet fighters unless very highly placed people in our government and our military wanted it to happen.

    It is important for people to understand that scrambling jet fighters to intercept aircraft showing the signs of experiencing "IN-FLIGHT EMERGENCIES" such as going off course without authorization, losing a transponder signal and/or losing radio contact is a common and routine task executed jointly between the FAA and NORAD controllers. The entire "national defense-first responder" intercept system has many highly-trained civilian and military personnel who are committed and well-trained to this task.  FAA and NORAD continuously monitor our skies and fighter planes and pilots are on the ready 24/7 to handle these situations.  Jet fighters typically intercept any suspect plane over the United States within 10 - 15 minutes of notification of a problem.

    This type of "immediate, high speed, high priority and emergency" scramble had been happening regularly approximately 75 - 150 times per year for ten years. ...

    I believe that 9/11 was what is known as a "False Flag Operation" in which a country inflicts casualties upon itself, and then blames it on an enemy that they want to go to war against.  It is one more instance in the United States’ long history of using "False Flag Operations" and blatant propaganda to ramp-up hostile emotions towards an enemy in a population otherwise resistant to going to war."  Link to full statement and expanded bio


  • Article 3/12/07: "When it became clear that there hadn't been a systems failure of any kind on the morning of September 11th, Hordon was certain that something had gone terribly wrong within the upper echelons of authority.  A pilot (third level air carrier) as well as an ATC, he is well versed on in-flight emergency protocol.  He is also adamant that if these procedures had been followed on 9/11 not one of the hijacked planes would have reached their targets.

    "I'm sorry but American 11 should have been intercepted over southwest Connecticut—bang, done deal." ...

    The unfathomable delays seen in military action on 9/11 are inconceivable to those who have painstakingly investigated the matter -- and for a man who worked for years keeping air travel over the U.S. safe. ...

    "I think we all have to agree that, one way or another, the U.S. military was involved in the attacks.  The advantage that Rumsfeld had is that he can classify, reshape, make available, make unavailable any information that he wants, at any time and deny that information to the public for any reason, especially national security." http://www.prisonplanet.com

    Bruce Sinclair:  Well, the one I use for people who are 9/11 neophytes or people who are disbelievers is -- The single most compelling piece of evidence is the collapse of Building 7 at the World Trade Center.  Most people don't even know that Building 7 collapsed because it's been expunged from the mainstream media completely.  But the bottom line is that when a 47-story steel and concrete structure falls at 5:30 in the afternoon at 6 and a half seconds of free-fall speed into its own shadow, with video tapes of people saying "You'll have to get back.  The building is coming down." -- Videos which I've seen.  Another one which has actually people videotaped doing a countdown before the building is destroyed.  This is the prima facie proof of an inside job.  This building was hit by no airplane. ...  http://www.youtube.com

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "Like Richard Gage and the ae911truth organization, I accepted the "official story" until April 2008, when I read a paper written by Steven Jones, BYU physics professor. The towers and building #7 collapsed at near-freefall velocity, consistent with a controlled demolition. The NIST report is inaccurate, if not entirely bogus. The collapse of the trade towers should be re-investigated as a joint scientific (like the Challenger space shuttle disaster) and criminal (a team of independent forensic scientists) investigation."  http://www.ae911truth.org


  • 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

  • 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.

    "WTC Towers 1 and 2 and Building 7 were brought down by tightly controlled sequenced explosive charges.  First the basements were blown out, then the classic 'crimp' blowing out interior columns that allowed them to fall at free-fall speed, pulling the exterior walls inward and down.

    "After hearing the explanations that your associates gave for the demolition verses a collapse, I started to examine the videos carefully and was able by pause and start, pause and start, in one second bits to observe and photograph the explosions and heavy steel pieces blown horizontally during the demolitions.  Other studies brought me to the conclusion that certain responsible people were informed in advance and acted to further their personal agendas by demolishing the buildings without warning the occupants or the Firefighters until Building Seven when the owner did warn the Fire and Rescue to get away.  Immediately Building 7 is so obviously taken down that anyone could tell."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement to this website 8/27/08:

    "These different groups are all named what they are calling for: Pilots "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", Architects and Engineers "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", Firefighters "FOR 9/11 TRUTH", etc.  They are not named for a particular theory of what happened on 9/11, for example Pilots for Theory X.  They are only interested in finding the truth -- whatever it is -- of what happened.

    The mere fact that there was no immediate call for a real, full and competent investigation following 9-11, and in fact that there was ongoing obstruction of any investigation, says it all: we are still far from the truth of what happened and there is simply too much at stake to let it go.  What could be wrong or crazy about that position?"


  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "The existing and accumulating evidence and implications demand a thorough and competent investigation of 9/11 without fear or favor.  The science, evidence and reasoning in this slide show alone are extremely compelling and any summary dismissals of "Conspiracy Theory" are arrogant, disingenuous and anti-scientific. (How and why would/could anyone summarily dismiss evidence they have not even bothered to view let alone consider?)  And, by the way, if conspiracies do not actually occur in the real world, why do we have laws against them?  The official 9/11 Commission was worse than an outright fraud and cover-up."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I have been researching the events of 9/11 intensely for about 2 months now.  I have analyzed the events from 3 different perspectives.

    1. As a U.S. Navy fighter pilot, having served on alert on the pad at Key West, Florida.  We could be in the air and at full after-burner speed in 5 minutes or less on course to an invading Cuban Mig-21.

    Where were the Air Force F-15s on 9/11?  There was an abundance of time after each hijacking to intercept and possibly shoot down each airliner.

    2. As an airline pilot trained for hijackings in the 1970s when there were dozens of them, including aircraft of Eastern Airlines, I know that awareness of hijackings by the FAA and subsequently the pilots on alert, happens within 2-3 minutes of the event.  Where were the F-15s?

    3. As an attorney, trained to gather and evaluate evidence, I know that the official 9/11 government reports are impossible to believe."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Article The Portugal News 8/10/02: "In an interview with The News, Captain Colin McHattie, a pilot with over 20 years experience, and who between flights resides with his family at their home in the Algarve, gave his personal opinion on the inquiry’s findings.

    Captain McHattie, who flies for Cathay Pacific Airlines, said that it was very unlikely that the pilots concerned were in fact in control of their aircraft. He agreed with the report’s comments that even if the flight crews had guns held to their heads, there was no way they would have deliberately flown directly into the Twin Towers. “Human nature takes over, and in any case, even if you knew you were going to die, you would ditch the aircraft as far away as possible from residential or commercial districts." ...

    Captain McHattie also commented on the failure of the hijacked pilots to punch a four-digit alarm code into the airliners’ transponder units. This would have immediately warned ground control of any hijacking.

    He confirmed that in the highly unlikely event that the hijackers would have been capable of shutting down the transponders, there was in fact another simple procedure by which the crews could have warned ground control - a procedure he chose not to elaborate on. The absence of any distress calls from the airliners was indeed puzzling." http://s3.amazonaws.com/

– Retired commercial airline pilot for American Airlines.  30 year commercial aviation career.  Former U.S. Navy combat fighter pilot.  Graduate of U.S. Naval Academy.  Aircraft flown: McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom.
  • Article The Portugal News 8/3/02: "A further question raised by the inquiry was why none of the pilots concerned had alerted ground control. It stated that all pilots are trained to punch a four-digit code into the flight control's transponder to warn ground control crews of a hijacking - but this did not happen.

    During the press conference Captain Hill maintained that the four airliners must have been choreographed by an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). This system can engage several aircraft simultaneously by knocking out their on-board flight controls. He said that all the evidence points to the fact that the pilots and their crews had not taken any evasive action to resist the supposed hijackers. They had not attempted any sudden changes in flight path or nose-dive procedures - which led him to believe that they had no control over their aircraft." http://www.prisonplanet.com
    Original article (requires subscription): http://www.the-news.net


  • Article by Col Donn de Grand Pre: "The other [pilot], Kent Hill, who lives with his wife, Carol, on a farm close to mine, is an American Airlines captain assigned to the European route. He was a lifelong friend of "Chic" Burlingame, They were graduates of the Naval Academy and flew F-4 Phantoms in Vietnam. Both left the Navy 28 years ago and joined American Airlines. Both planned to retire in 2002. Chic was the captain of AA flight 77, a Boeing 757, which departed Washington Dulles for Los Angeles at 8: 10 am on 11 September, with 58 passengers and a crew of 6. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon at 9:41 am.

    "We were totally trained on the old type of hijack," Capt Hill said, "where you treat the hijacker cordially, punch a 4-digit code into your transponder to alert ground control you're being hijacked, and then get him where he wants to go, set the plane safely on the ground and let them deal with it on the ground. However, this is a totally new situation... Not one of the planes alerted ground control that they were being hijacked." How come?

    "The fact is, all the transponders were turned off on the doomed flights virtually at the same time." Look at their departure times -- two from Logan (Boston), one from Newark, another from Dulles (Washington DC) -- all between 8 am and 8:15.

    "Shortly after climb-out to flight level, their transponders are de-activated.. (they are no longer a blip on the radar screens). This is something that really needs to be looked into. The only reason we turn them off is so they don't interfere with ground systems when we land."

    (Note: Transponders identify a particular aircraft in flight on the radar screens of FAA flight controllers located throughout the country. Various codes are punched into the transponder, one displaying, "I am being hijacked.")  ...

    He is convinced none of the pilots had control of their aircraft when they were flown into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The question then becomes, who was really in control?

    "Even if I had a gun at my head, I'd never fly a plane into a building. I'd try to put it in anywhere -- a field or a river -- and I'd be scaring the hell out of them (the hijackers) by flying upside down first," Hill said.

    In fact, the pilot has the best weapon in his hand when threatened with imminent death by a hijacker, namely, the airplane." http://www.geocities.com/mknemesis/colonels.html

    "I am so happy that a professional organization is finally trying to dig up the truth!

    I am a former airline captain with over 9,000 flight hours, Captain on both the Boeing 747-400 and 737- 300.

    After viewing many posted videos on "Youtube" I can tell you without hesitation that clearly aircraft # 2 B-767 - was radio controlled into the building – Tower 2. The "pod" mounted on the bottom of the aircraft, is manufactured by "Martin Marietta" Corporation in Los Angeles.

    The pod has been used extensively by the USAF for outfitting drone aircraft for over 22 years, and you can clearly see it in (4) of the amateur videos- just before impact, with tower # 2.

    Also, I would like to find an “insider” “A and P” mechanic at both United and America to cross reference the A/C serial number of flight 77 and 93. I guarantee that they change the “N” issued tail number. However, one could trace and find this original A/C, from an insider employee, at these companies- leading to the smoking gun these aircraft were not destroyed.

    Lastly, I was based at Cincinnati airport-which is where both aircraft flew to, and where: NASA AMES is located, and where all passengers were off-loaded before they where 'eliminated'."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Letter to The Nation website 1/17/07:

    "I am an airline pilot, retired after years of flying heavy jets on international routes. During my training I reviewed reports and photographs of thousands of aircraft accidents. I watched live news footage from the Pentagon on 9/11. I recognized immediately that what I saw could not possibly have been an aircraft crash scene.

    Where did the energy of 200 tons of mass striking that building go? The roof fell downward when it should have been blown into the next state. It doesn't take a PhD to figure out what any high school physics student could. Nor does it take an airline pilot like myself to notice the minimal damage, lack of aircraft parts, bodies, cargo, baggage, etc. that should be spread out in a 360-degree pattern.

    Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of this scene is the U-shaped burn pattern, viewed from above, that extends through all five Pentagon segments and has two 90-degree turns. As a Vietnam Special Forces vet I'd suggest the possibility of faulty explosives that fizzled and burned rather than exploding." http://www.thenation.com/doc/20070205/letter

    "On 9/11, I was a senior pilot for a major airline. Prior to that time, I spent six years as a captain on the B-767/757. I watched the second airplane hit the World Trade Center on television. All my instincts told me something was wrong with the official explanation. I still read everything I can find about the events of that day in an attempt to find some truth that satisfies my misgivings. I have found many authors who seem legitimate and who raise questions that need to be answered. Others are so outlandish as to appear to be spreading disinformation. Until there is a very open investigation with the world as its witness, nothing will be resolved. The implications of 9/11 are huge. As it is, our society may never recover from all the lies and disinformation and structural changes to our governance that have been made in its name." http://www.thenation.com/doc/20070205/letter

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "In terms of Psychological effect, the aviation analogy would be: 9/11 was like a "cabin pressurization emergency," sucking the oxygen from our brains.  AE911truth is like the oxygen mask hanging from the ceiling.  Put it on and Breathe!"  http://www.ae911truth.org


  • 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


  • 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: 

    "I became interested in 9/11 truth after being stationed here in D.C. late in 2003. I watched the official released NTSB graphical description of the flight recorder tapes. Then I read the 9/11 Commission Report and compared the pictures in the report to the angle of the airliner hitting the Pentagon from the flight data recorder and saw that these were contradictory to each other, so I started my own investigation.

    The helicopter VFR routes run right by the side of the Pentagon that was hit. There are cameras in that area that will show what hit the Pentagon. Why has the FBI or government not released those tapes after six years?

    I have concluded that an independent investigation is needed.

    I will include this disclaimer that this is not the official position of the Air Force or U.S. military. I am not a Public Relations Representative of the Air Force. I swore and oath to protect the U.S. Constitution from all enemies foreign or domestic. This event makes me concerned about the future."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • 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


  • 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.

Scholars for 9/11 truth have developed reams of scientific data. Michael Ruppert published an exhaustive account of the case from the viewpoint of a trained investigator.

  • 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

  • Statement to this website 3/25/07: "After 4+ years of research since retirement in 2002, I am 100% convinced that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were planned, organized, and committed by treasonous perpetrators that have infiltrated the highest levels of our government.  It is now time to take our country back.

    The "collapse" of WTC Building 7 shows beyond any doubt that the demolitions were pre-planned.  There is simply no way to demolish a 47-story building (on fire) over a coffee break.  It is also impossible to report the building’s collapse before it happened, as BBC News did, unless it was pre-planned.  Further damning evidence is Larry Silverstein's video taped confession in which he states "they made that decision to pull [WTC 7] and we watched the building collapse." [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.]

    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!"

  • Statement to this website 9/25/07: "When 9/11 occurred I bought the entire government and mainstream media story line.  I was a lifelong conservative Republican that voted for Bush/Cheney, twice.  Curiosity about JFK’s death, after a late night TV re-run of Oliver Stone’s movie, got me started researching and digging for the truth about his assassins.

    My research lead me to a much more important and timely question: the mystery of what really did happen on 9/11.  Everything that seemed real, turned out to be false.  The US government and the news media, once again, were lying to the world about the real terrorists and the public murder of 2,972 innocents on 9/11.

    The “Patriot Act” was actually written prior to 9/11 with the intention of destroying the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.  It was passed by Congress, based upon the government's myth of 9/11, which was in reality a staged hoax.  9/11 was scripted and executed by rogue elements of the military, FAA, intelligence, and private contractors working for the US government.

    In addition to severely curtailing fundamental rights of Americans, the 9/11 crime was then used by this administration, the one I originally voted for and supported, to justify waging two preemptive wars (and most likely a third war), killing over 4,500 American soldiers, and killing over one million innocent Afghan and Iraqi people.

    It was all premeditated.

    Treason, a false flag military operation, and betrayal of the trust of the American people were committed on 9/11 by the highest levels of the US government and not one person responsible for the crimes, or the cover-up, has been held accountable for the last six years.

    After reading fifteen well researched books, studying eight or nine DVD documentaries, and devoting months of personal research and investigation, I have arrived at one ultimate conclusion: The American government and the US Constitution have been hijacked and subverted by a group of criminals that today are the real terrorists.  They are in control of the US government and they have all violated their oaths of office and committed treason against their own citizens.

    John F. Kennedy knew what was a similar truth in his day, and his life was snuffed out, prematurely.  Had JFK’s  assassins been brought to justice after that 1963 day in Dealey Plaza, some of the very same perpetrators that orchestrated the 9/11 crimes, almost 37 years later, would be in prison where they belong.  Don’t let them get away with it, again!"

  • 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."

    Regarding 9/11: "Ultimate responsibility for the so-called "air policing" and for alarming the interceptor pilots, in NATO terminology an "Alpha Scramble" when the planes go up, lies with the North American Air Defense Command NORAD.  It is the largest air defense center in the world watching for external as well as internal threats.  It has every single mouse on its radar screen. 

    Among the NATO nations, it is the general rule that within 10 to 15 minutes of the sounding of an alarm, planes have to be in the air.  It was exactly this which did not occur for over two hours.  Not one single interceptor plane made the attempt to force the [hijacked] planes down or even to investigate or anything else.  A story is told that prior to September 11th, 2001, in the same year more than 60 similar operations [air intercepts] were executed without a hitch. 

    And the smokescreens which have been put up by the official inquiry committee of the Congress that on this day an unbelievable number of exercises by the Air Force had taken place and so everyone had been confused and not able to tell the difference between real life and exercise.  That is simply incomprehensible for someone with a background in air defense.  Because exercises, with regard to air traffic control and air defense, are always separated from real life in air traffic."

  • Associated Press Article FBI Agent Slams Bosses at Moussaoui Trial 3/20/06:

    The FBI agent [Harry Samit] who arrested Zacarias Moussaoui in August 2001 testified Monday he spent almost four weeks trying to warn U.S. officials about the radical Islamic student pilot but "criminal negligence" by superiors in Washington thwarted a chance to stop the 9/11 attacks. ...

    But Samit told MacMahon he couldn't persuade FBI headquarters or the Justice Department to take his fears seriously. No one from Washington called Samit to say this intelligence altered the picture the agent had been painting since Aug. 18 in a running battle with Maltbie and Maltbie's boss, David Frasca, chief of the radical fundamentalist unit at headquarters. ...

    Under questioning from MacMahon, Samit acknowledged that he had told the Justice Department inspector general that "obstructionism, criminal negligence and careerism" on the part of FBI headquarters officials had prevented him from getting a warrant that would have revealed more about Moussaoui's associates. He said that opposition blocked "a serious opportunity to stop the 9/11 attacks." Article archived at http://www.911truth.org


  • Washington Post Article FBI Was Warned About Moussaoui: 3/21/06:

    "An FBI agent [Harry Samit] who interrogated Zacarias Moussaoui before Sept. 11, 2001, warned his supervisors more than 70 times that Moussaoui was a terrorist and spelled out his suspicions that the al-Qaeda operative was plotting to hijack an airplane, according to federal court testimony yesterday. [Editor's note: All 70 efforts occurred in the 4 weeks before 9/11.]

    Agent Harry Samit told jurors at Moussaoui's death penalty trial that his efforts to secure a warrant to search Moussaoui's belongings were frustrated at every turn by FBI officials he accused of "criminal negligence." Article archived at http://www.911truth.org



  • Editor's note: The 9/11 Commission Report does mention differences of opinion within the FBI about obtaining a warrant to investigate the possessions of Zacarias Moussaoui and a few of Agent Samit's efforts to obtain the warrant are mentioned. However, there is no mention that Agent Samit made 70 frantic efforts in the 4 weeks prior to 9/11 to obtain that warrant. Agent Samit is not mentioned by name in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks," however, he is referred to as Harry S. in 3 footnotes. The Commission Report also contains no mention of Agent Samit's allegations of "obstructionism, criminal negligence and careerism" on the part of FBI headquarters officials.  See also Special Agent Colleen Rowley and Special Agent Robert Wright.

  • 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."

  • Essay 8/7/06: "I began the investigation of 9/11 on 9/12/2001, because some of the planes were known Air Emergencies for nearly an hour.  I began by going to the FAA, looked up the Chapter on Air Emergencies in the FAA Manual, and based on what was said there, I concluded that NORAD, and or the FAA had not followed the protocols. ...

    The Andrews AFB Mission Statement was listed as "The Highest State of Combat Readiness" in the Air National Guard. I book marked the page, and less than a week later the Andrews AFB site was changed, the Mission Statement page was no longer available for viewing. "They" had blocked access to it. A short time later the FAA manual changed as well, and access to the page on Air Emergences was blocked, and still is to this day.  These 2 events made me very suspicious, and with further investigation my suspicions have not only not abated, they have increased to a point where I am no longer suspicious, I am convinced that 9/11 was an inside/outside job. ...

Major Mike McCormack, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Patrol
Pilot and Medic; specialist in collapsed infrastructure rescue and hazmat.  Arrived at Ground Zero about three hours after both towers had collapsed.  He worked throughout the first six days of the rescue effort, until it changed from search and recovery to recovery only.  While engaged in this work, he found the World Trade Center towers' flag, which was later displayed at the Olympics.  Major McCormick now suffers from respiratory illness and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.  He was awarded a Congressional Certificate, a thank you letter from the President, and a commendation from Governor Pataki.  He was denied coverage by the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund because it asserted that he had not proved that he was there.  Major McCormack is one of the 9/11 responders featured in Sierra Club Chronicles: Episode 1: 9/11 Forgotten Heroes

    WHEREAS, many New York City voters believe that there remain many unanswered questions critical to establishing the truth about all relevant events leading up to, during and subsequent to the tragic attacks occurring on September 11, 2001 (“9/11”), and

    WHEREAS, no prior investigation by any New York City agency or any other governmental entity has resulted in the citizens being provided with those critical answers or information necessary to establish the truth about those tragic events, ...

    An independent, temporary New York City commission (the “Commission”) is hereby created to conduct a comprehensive, factdriven investigation into the events that took place on 9/11, as well as to thoroughly examine related events before and after the attacks, including any activities attempting to hide, cover up, impede or obstruct any investigation into these 9/11 events, following wherever the facts may lead.

    I identify with the documentary testimony of Scott Forbes, Senior Database Administrator Fiduciary Trust - 2001, relating with my own military and systems analyst experience.  The issues of building security and conflicting interests of building owners and investment firms are highly suspect, the need of an independent investigation is paramount.  Not to mention on the day of the attack, all those in my command center expressed, accountability and execution of these attacks could not occur without the help of an inside intelligence resource."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "I started my career as an Aerial Reconnaissance Photographer / Photo Lab Technician and some image interpreting experience. I later became a U.S. Air Force Combat Photographer / Photojournalist. During this time I did assignments throughout the Nellis/Tonopah Range sites which included the real Area 51 and it assets throughout the United States. Numerous R&D projects and assignments involving controlled demolitions, bomb tests, before and after documentations of explosives-delivery devices on structures; aircraft crashed, both real-world, and controlled; static, controlled building demolitions tests, etc, etc, etc. I then retired after the Gulf War in 1991.

    From my experience, I know without a doubt that aircraft impacts could only have done critical, but survivable damage to the towers -- they were built specifically to survive such an impact. The fuel was expended during the initial 15-to-30 minutes after the crashes--you can tell from the bellowing smoke -- the flames were not hot enough to melt the superstructure (another design necessity). These buildings were "Pulled" using controlled, sequential, compound detonations."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Firefighters for 9-11 Truth and affiliates are deeply troubled with the “official” story concerning 9/11 and the way the rescue workers from Ground Zero are being “forgotten.”

    We believe there is overwhelming evidence of obstruction of justice, and destruction of evidence voiced even by numerous 9/11 Commissioners themselves. Senator Cleland resigned from the Commission stating, “This investigation is now compromised.”

    NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 921, which is the National Standard for Fire and Explosion Investigations, very clearly indicates in numerous sections that the possibility of explosives should have been thoroughly investigated. ... Specifically, the use of "exotic accelerants" should have been investigated. In NFPA 921 19.2.4 -“Exotic Accelerants,” three indicators were clearly met that should have led to a thorough investigation into the possible use of “exotic accelerants,” specifically as stated in the guideline, “Thermite mixtures.”

    So, why was the possibility of explosives, controlled demolition, or the use of "exotic accelerants" not thoroughly investigated, or even mentioned in the 9-11 Commission Report?

    We, the undersigned, demand the following:

    1) A truly independent investigation with Subpoena and Contempt Powers to uncover the complete truth of the events related to 9/11/2001 – specifically the collapse of WTC Tower 7 and the possibility of explosive demolition. ..." http://firefightersfor911truth.org

  • CNN Interview 9/15/01: Regarding 9/11 "... those who did that [piloted a 757 into the Pentagon] should have flown in the area a long time, for example. The Pentagon is not very high, a pilot could come straight to the Pentagon like this to hit, he should have flown a lot in this area to know the obstacles which could meet him when he is flying very low with a big commercial plane to hit the Pentagon in a special place.

    Somebody has studied this very well, someone has flown in this area very much.

    Q: Are you suggesting it was an inside operation, I may ask, who do you think is behind this?

    Mubarak: Frankly speaking I don't want to jump to conclusions. ... let us wait and see what is the result of the investigations, because something like this done in the United States is not an easy thing ... I am speaking as a former pilot, I know that very well, I flew very heavy planes, I flew fighters, I know that very well, this is not an easy thing, so I think we should not jump to conclusions from now." http://www.presidency.

  • Article 10/25/01: "I find it hard to believe that people who were learning to fly in Florida could, within a year and a half, fly large commercial airlines and hit with accuracy the towers of the World Trade Center which would appear, to the pilot from the air, the size of a pencil. Only a professional pilot could carry out this mission, not someone who learned to fly for 18 months in Florida." http://www.sis.gov.eg

    "[W]e the undersigned wish to bring to the attention of the Congress and the people of the United States what we believe are serious shortcomings in the report and its recommendations. …

    Omission is one of the major flaws in the Commission’s report. We are aware of significant issues and cases that were duly reported to the commission by those of us with direct knowledge, but somehow escaped attention. …

    The omission of such serious and applicable issues and information by itself renders the report flawed, and casts doubt on the validity of many of its recommendations. ...

    The Commission, with its incomplete report of "facts and circumstances", intentional avoidance of assigning accountability, and disregard for the knowledge, expertise and experience of those who actually do the job, has now set about pressuring our Congress and our nation to hastily implement all its recommendations. ...

    We the undersigned, who have worked within various government agencies (FBI, CIA, FAA, DIA, Customs) responsible for national security and public safety, call upon you in Congress to include the voices of those with first-hand knowledge and expertise in the important issues at hand.

  • 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

    Major Shinn's concluding narration: "The South Tower collapsed suddenly at 9:59 am. By the evidence of these emergency communications, it is apparent that the supposed jet fuel office fires said to have destroyed the 110 stories of structural steel was somehow insufficient to avert these rescue operations.

    Something doesn't add up. Either there were emergency teams operating in the building or there was a tremendous inferno of sustained temperature as required to obliterate the strength of steel.

    The two possibilities are mutually exclusive. If you can understand the significance of this elementary evidence, it is now your responsibility to get involved.

    Become active in the pursuit of justice.

    Join our expanding world wide movement to call for a new investigation.

  • 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."

    No matter who, what, and how exactly the final story of 9/11 is going to be told, as truth will always out, one chapter which can never be excluded is the five plus years of continued obfuscation and corruption of our government, which has abandoned the basic principles of jurisprudence, the rule of law, and recognition of the dignity of all human beings.  This is truly our government's blackest days, and We the People's most shameful affair to date for allowing it to continue.

    We have a most serious mess to clean up, as We The People can not shirk our inescapable responsibility for our government and its actions.

    We can only recover our direction and moral compass by dismissing the 9/11 Commission Report and starting again, largely from scratch, to investigate the events of 9/11."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "I first knew that our government was lying to us about the events on 9/11, when they made the ridiculous claim the passengers made cell phone calls from 20,000 feet. Being very familiar with electronics and RF energy, I knew that cell phone calls could never be made from such a location. Having been an avionics technician for so many years, I also knew that most continental bound aircraft don’t have the seatback phone option installed, and even the ones that do have many difficulties with their operation. After listening to the alleged conversations between these victims and their families, it was quite clear that deep deception was taking place.

    I have a very high mechanical aptitude, and an in-depth understanding of metals, so the official story never added up in my mind. I always knew that there was more to the story, so the question for me then became, "Why is the government covering up the truth?" The most logical conclusion is that they were involved in the event. Terrorists could not have ordered our military fighters to stand down. Only the government can do that. Terrorists did not escort the many members of the Bin Laden family out of this country shortly after the event. Let me clarify that statement by saying, "Foreign terrorists did not escort the many members of the Bin Laden family out of this country shortly after the event."  http://www.ae911truth.org

    "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

    Through the years I have always been interested in viewing large structures that were demolished.  The Twin Towers and Building 7 in my opinion were brought down by specialists.  Anyone can see that Building 7 was a classic 'pull.'  The Pentagon photos do not show where the wings along with the engines would have hit.  It is very difficult to believe that this large airliner would totally disappear into that hole.  And where are the other videos from the pentagon?"  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition: 

    "My experience with aviation fuels (100 LL aviation gasoline and Jet A aviation kerosene, etc.) gives me some knowledge of their burn capabilities. Neither fuel has the stored energy to produce temperatures as high as needed to melt structural steel. Unless the fuel is ignited under high pressure and focused on a small area (such as with a cutting torch, etc) the temperatures are insufficient to have caused the collapse of the towers. ...

    Having read the book The New Pearl Harbor and the report on the World Trade center attacks by the 9/11 Commission and many other publications I feel that a full independent investigation is overdue into what actually brought down the towers. While it is true that 9/11 changed everything I believe that the truth was not told to us. When the investigation that needs to be done is completed that will truly "change everything".

  • 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:

    "Watching the symmetry in which all three three towers collapsed directly into their individual footprint was both momentarily hypnotic and totally unbelievable.  During the myriad of replays I viewed, before and during each tower collapse, I saw and heard different events taking place that fully convinced me other forces were at play bringing these buildings down.  To name a few:

    1) Explosions coupled with smoke appearing at the base of the towers moments before the collapse.

    2) Squibs appearing to shoot out from various floors far below the initial damage area.

    3) The manner in which the dust and smoke seemed to be expelled up and out from the building like an explosion as it descended.

    What also disturbed me was the area was totally void of being treated like crime scene by police and government officials.  Structural material was readily hauled away and shipped to foreign lands without any scientific or engineering analysis being performed.  Having spent over 23 years in the military I knew in my gut with the speed at which critical evidence was disappearing and flat out lies being told by government agents, i.e. like the aircraft black boxes found by fireman and taken by FBI agents, then making statements they weren't found and Mohammad Atta's wallet found in pristine condition a couple blocks away. 

    Well gentleman, I smell the same rat I smelled at various times during my military career.  That's my story and I'm stickin' to it until the truth is known and all involved held fully accountable, regardless of how far up the chain the trail leads."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:
    "In the Army Reserves I was trained in demolitions so I know what it takes to bring down a building in a controlled symmetrical fashion and what it looks like when it happens.

    As an aircraft mechanic, my knowledge of the properties of fuels, specifically Jet fuel (or highly refined kerosene), brings the conclusion that fires couldn't be hot enough to cause symmetrical structural collapse.

    Based on what I know, looking at it from various disciplines, it's obvious that all three WTC buildings collapsed due to pre-planned, well placed, precisely timed controlled demolitions."  http://www.ae911truth.org

We seek to move this Nation from a state of perpetual warfare to a state of prolonged peace and prosperity.

    In pursuit of our mission we have initially chosen to present evidence exposing the deception and lies that many in the military/intelligence/industrial/media establishment have been telling Americans and the world since September 11, 2001 concerning the events of that tragic day. Our mission includes seeking, discovering, and presenting evidence revealing the truth about the events of 9/11."  http://www.v911t.org


  • 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."

Sandy Dahl
– Wife of Jason Dahl, Pilot of United Airlines Flight 93. Flight Attendant for over 20 years.
  • Article by Gail Sheehy, New York Observer 2/26/04:

    "Melody Homer is another young widow of a 9/11 pilot. Her husband, LeRoy Homer, a muscular former Air Force pilot, was the first officer of United's Flight 93. The story put out by United-of heroic passengers invading the cockpit and struggling with the terrorists-is not believable to Melody Homer or to Sandy Dahl, widow of the plane's captain, Jason Dahl. Mrs. Dahl was a working flight attendant with United and knew the configuration of that 757 like the back of her hand.

    "We can't imagine that passengers were able to get a cart out of its locked berth and push it down the single aisle and jam it into the cockpit with four strong, violent men behind the door," said Ms. Homer. She believes that the victims' family members who broke a confidentiality agreement and gave their interpretation of sounds they'd heard on the cockpit tape misinterpreted the shattering of china. "When a plane goes erratic, china falls." http://www.observer.com/node/48805


  • Interview with Wolf Blitzer, CNN 8/8/03:

    Wolf Blitzer: A new report suggests a hijacker may have deliberately crashed United Flight 93 into a Pennsylvania field the morning of September 11, 2001. Officials say an FBI analysis of the cockpit voice recorder indicates the hijackers were trying to end a passenger uprising. Earlier speculation was that the passengers stormed the cockpit and crashed the plane themselves.

    I'm joined now by Sandy Dahl. She's the widow of Flight 93's captain, Jason Dahl. She listened to the actual voice recorder.

    Sandy, thanks very much for joining us. Welcome.

    What you to make of the new information the FBI is putting out?

    Sandy Dahl: I don't understand it, Mr. Blitzer.

    I heard the tape. I listened to it twice, listened to the transcripts. I didn't hear anything that indicated to me the hijackers were intending to crash the airplane.

    Wolf Blitzer: What they're suggesting, that a -- sort of an enhanced audio of that cockpit voice recording suggests that perhaps one of the hijackers ordered the hijacking pilot who managed to get into the cockpit to go ahead and crash the plane, as there was a disturbance among the passengers in the back. You've actually heard, though, the discussion, the cockpit voice recorder. And what did it say deliberately, clearly, to you?

    Sandy Dahl: There was no discussion of crashing it right now. They talked about ending their mission earlier.

    And they -- and they decided not to do that. So I don't think -- I don't think it was deliberate and it certainly wasn't planned.

    Wolf Blitzer: One of the suggestions they've suggested, at least some of the experts who heard the cockpit voice recording, was that, in the Arabic, that there may have been a different translation, there may have been a more precise explanation of what was going on that than in the translation or in the English, whatever you may have heard in English. Is that possible?

    Sandy Dahl: I heard the translation that the FBI gave us that day.

    And I wanted to say, I would really love for the government to come out and marry the flight data record with the voice recorder. And we would have a very clear picture of what went on. I'm kind of disappointed in reading this report.

    (CROSSTALK)

    Wolf Blitzer: Well, tell us why, Sandy, you are disappointed, because there clearly was resistance aboard the plane, the United flight. The passengers clearly took the matter into their own hands, even if the final order to crash the plane came from the hijackers, as opposed to the passengers, who decided to save, let's say, Washington, D.C., the White House or the Capitol, knowing what happened at the World Trade Center.

    Sandy Dahl: I'm disappointed at the FBI report, because I heard something other than what they reported. And I don't understand how they came up with it.

    For instance, they talk about passengers indicated that the pilots were dead and laying in the first-class section. I heard evidence to the contrary on this tape. And I don't understand why they would report that.

    Wolf Blitzer: Tell us exactly what you heard.

    Sandy Dahl: Oh, I can't do that. I have signed papers with the FBI saying that I wouldn't.

    I just wish that they would come out and tell the truth, the FBI, with the evidence they know. I'm not saying that they're deliberately trying to he deceive. I would just like the evidence out, so that people can know what really happened. It is kind of a folktale at this point. There was a riot of passengers and crew at the end. And they did crash into the cockpit.

    Wolf Blitzer: When you say you can't tell us what exactly you heard, I'm not exactly clear why they would classify that. What is the secret at this point, give that we basically know so much about what happened?

    Sandy Dahl: I'm not exactly sure either. Since they came out with this report, part of it, what they want to say, it isn't clear to me why it would be a secret. I understand that Zacarias Moussaoui needs a fair trial. And I'm hoping very much he gets one.

    But I don't understand why keeping this a secret -- I would think that flight attendants, pilots and the traveling public, having this knowledge, it would be to their advantage.

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    "While working at Marshall Space Flight Center, part of my job was to maintain the sensors which were attached to various metals and plastics before and after they were ran through vibration, heat, fire, cold, weight, etc. Even though my position was not one that would actually analyze the final testing, it was one that required me to be trained in the various ways fire and heat can affect metals. I would end up continuing my education at the University of Alabama in Huntsville to learn that.

    In my opinion, the WTC towers (all 3 of them) show too much evidence that they were not 'Pancake Collapses'. Even if they were, the chance of 3 of them doing the identical thing was too big of a coincidence to be real. I have followed this since day one.

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.

  • Founder of 911.org.pl, the first 9/11 Truth website in Poland. 5/27/09:

    "In Poland, people are still not aware of what really happened on 11 September 2001. After a brief period of interest by the media, the reality of 9/11 is being covered up more and more every day. The memory of the attacks decline. In fact, many of us do not realize the seriousness of these events for all of us and of how the drama of 9/11 affected the lives of us all.

    911.org.pl is an initiative set up to ensure that these tragic events and their consequences continue to be known. And especially so that this subject will continue to be covered despite the conspiracy of silence in the so-called mainstream media." (Translated from the original Polish text.)


  • Personal statement regarding his book, Operation: Two Towers:

    "The acts of September 11 deliberately destroyed the two highest towers of New York ... The entire attack, which destroyed 4 aircraft and thousands of lives, could not have succeeded without subversion of the air traffic control system.

    When dealing with an air accident, the media only reports the course of the aircraft as reported by the control tower.  This is a huge simplification, because the air traffic control system consists of a chain of many individual entities.  But this simplified explanation has become the conventional wisdom.

    I look at the events of 9/11 in the broader context.  Here again, I feel that this is represented by the two towers.  One, an efficient air traffic control system of thousands of workers engaged in a serious and responsible task.  And a second criminal one, hidden behind the first, acting contrary to the basic principle of air traffic control; negating the efforts of the decent people in aviation safety.

    It was an evil act to turn the air traffic control apparatus, which is designed to serve and protect citizens, against them; a collusion beginning with senior authorities, through military command, the intelligence agencies, and finally the media."  (Translated from the Polish.)  Original version at http://sklep.tarotnet.pl

– Former Operations Manager for the JetTech flight school, Phoenix, AZ, where Hani Hanjour, who allegedly piloted a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon, took flight lessons.

Marilyn Ladner
– Vice President of Pan Am International Flight Academy that owned JetTech.
  • CBS News Article FAA Was Alerted To Sept. 11 Hijacker5/10/02:

    "Months before Hani Hanjour is believed to have flown an American Airlines jet into the Pentagon, managers at an Arizona flight school reported him at least five times to the FAA, reports CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales.

    They reported him not because they feared he was a terrorist, but because his English and flying skills were so bad, they told the Associated Press, they didn't think he should keep his pilot's license.

    "I couldn't believe he had a commercial license of any kind with the skills that he had," said Peggy Chevrette, the manager for the now-defunct JetTech flight school in Phoenix." http://www.cbsnews.com

  • Fox News Article FAA Probed, Cleared Sept. 11 Hijacker in Early 2001 5/10/02:

    "Federal aviation authorities were alerted in early 2001 that an Arizona flight school believed one of the eventual Sept. 11 hijackers lacked the English and flying skills necessary for the commercial pilot's license he already held, flight school and government officials say. 

    A Federal Aviation Administration inspector even sat next to the hijacker, Hani Hanjour, in one of the Arizona classes, checked records to ensure Hanjour's 1999 pilot's license was legitimate but concluded no other action was warranted, FAA officials told The Associated Press. 

    Hanjour is believed to have piloted the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11. ...

    The operations manager for the now-defunct JetTech flight school in Phoenix said she called the FAA inspector that oversaw her school three times in January and February 2001 to express her concerns about Hanjour. 

    "I couldn't believe he had a commercial license of any kind with the skills that he had," said Peggy Chevrette, the JetTech manager. She also has been interviewed by the FBI. 

    Marilyn Ladner, a vice president for the Pan Am International Flight Academy that owned JetTech before it closed in the aftermath of Sept. 11, said the flight school expressed its concerns and believes the FAA official observed Hanjour's weaknesses firsthand.

    "We did have skill level concerns and a bit of language fluency concern and we did mention it to our FAA training center official," Ladner said.

    The FAA official "did observe Hani's limited knowledge of flying" and "did check his flight credentials. He did tell us they were valid, so he did follow up on our concern," she said. Hanjour did not finish his studies at JetTech and left the school.

    FAA officials confirm their inspector, John Anthony, was contacted by Pan Am in January and February about Hanjour and, at the request of the school, checked Hanjour's commercial pilot's license to ensure it was valid.

    But they said he observed nothing that warranted further action or suggested Hanjour would eventually hijack a plane. The inspector considered Hanjour just one of many students that schools routinely seek FAA reviews on, officials said.

    "There was nothing about the pilot's actions to signal criminal intent at the time or that would have caused us to alert law enforcement," FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said. ...

    The FAA's Brown said Anthony was taking some of his own training at JetTech in January 2001 and coincidentally sat in the same classroom with Hanjour for one course. But she said Anthony didn't note any major language problems.

    Chevrette, the flight school manager, said she told Anthony she believed Hanjour could not write or speak English fluently as required to get a U.S. commercial pilot's license.

    "The thing that really concerned me was that John had a conversation in the hallway with Hani and realized what his skills were at that point and his ability to speak English," Chevrette said.

    Chevrette said she was surprised when the FAA official suggested the school might consider getting a translator to help Hanjour.

    "He offered a translator," Chevrette said. "Of course, I brought up the fact that went against the rules that require a pilot to be able to write and speak English fluently before they even get their license."

    Chevrette said Hanjour's English was so poor that it took him five hours to complete a section of a mock pilot's oral exam that is supposed to last just a couple of hours. ...

    Chevrette said she contacted Anthony twice more when Hanjour began ground training for Boeing 737 jetliners and it became clear he didn't have the skills for the commercial pilot's license.

    "I don't truly believe he should have had it and I questioned that. I questioned that all along," she said." http://www.foxnews.com



  • Editor's note: Despite the inclusion of a lengthy recitation of Hani Hanjour's flight training, no mention of Peggy Chevrette, Marilyn Ladner, or that they had repeatedly reported their concerns about Hani Hanjour's piloting abilities to the FAA appears in the 9/11 Commission's "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."

  • Prince George's Journal (Maryland) Article 9/18/01:

    "Marcel Bernard, the chief flight instructor at the airport, said the man named Hani Hanjour went into the air in a Cessna 172 with instructors from the airport three times beginning the second week of August [2001] and had hoped to rent a plane from the airport. ...

    Hanjour had his pilot's license, said Bernard, but needed what is called a ‘check-out’ done by the airport to gauge a pilot’s skills before he or she is able to rent a plane at Freeway Airport, which runs parallel to Route 50.

    Instructors at the school told Bernard that after three times in the air, they still felt he was unable to fly solo and that Hanjour seemed disappointed ...

    Hanjour had 600 hours listed in his log book, Bernard said, and instructors were surprised he was not able to fly better with the amount of experience."

However, this article is quoted in numerous sources, including Webster Tarpley's 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA which can be read online here.


  • Newsday Article Tracing Trail of Hijackers 9/23/01:

    "At Freeway Airport in Bowie, Md., 20 miles west of Washington, flight instructor Sheri Baxter instantly recognized the name of alleged hijacker Hani Hanjour when the FBI released a list of 19 suspects in the four hijackings. Hanjour, the only suspect on Flight 77 the FBI listed as a pilot, had come to the airport one month earlier seeking to rent a small plane.

    However, when Baxter and fellow instructor Ben Conner took the slender, soft-spoken Hanjour on three test runs during the second week of August, they found he had trouble controlling and landing the single-engine Cessna 172. Even though Hanjour showed a federal pilot's license and a log book cataloging 600 hours of flying experience, chief flight instructor Marcel Bernard declined to rent him a plane without more lessons." archived at http://web.archive.org

    "Was graduated U of Manitoba (Can.) 1950. Started career at Can. Gen Electric (Toronto) Commercial Communications. Then in 1953 to RCA Commercial Communications, Camden, NJ, design & install long haul systems Mil AUTODIN, pipeline, rail, Broadcast TV network systems.

    In 1981 joined MITRE Corp, Bedford MA as Lead Systems Engineer, design and acquisition, integration/test airborne Wide Body Presidential assets. This extended to Special Service classified systems in both fixed wing & rotary wing platforms until my retirement in 2004.

    This career was far beyond "EE". I was fortunate to develop expertise in fields of Aeronautical Engineering particularly Vibro Acoustic damage on trans-sonic applications and damage mitigation from nuclear events.

    True, both WTC 1 & 2 , North & South structures were impacted by commercial "757's" killing innocent passengers, crew & hijackers along with occupants in the building floors at point of impact. The devastation and human loss beyond the impact site was due to other influences because of the proven design and features of the Towers.

    The temperatures in the impact areas due to burning Jet-A fuel and the office furnishings and business tools could NOT rise to the level of 3000-4000 deg. F necessary to deform and fail structural steel joints and the total collapse of the structures.

    Such "failure" could only be caused by man-made features of pyro-technical assets pre-placed by "outsiders". Look at the destruction of WTC 7. No aircraft or heavy debris collateral from the Towers struck that building.

    All destruction was in the classical method of building REMOVAL to make way for new assets."  http://www.ae911truth.org

  • 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.

    "I have spent five years researching and discussing the events of 9/11.  The reason I would like to sign this petition for a new investigation is due to the unanswered questions, informational gaps, inconsistencies and discrepancies of the 911 Commission Report in general, and because of the unacceptable work of the NIST in investigating the collapse of the towers specifically.

    The tragedy of 9/11 and the mass of civilian deaths that occurred that day demand a proper investigation, unbiased fact-seeking, and full-disclosure.  The American people have been charged $16 million by the NIST and received nothing of value in return for that price.  I would lose my engineering license if I pulled that stunt."  http://www.ae911truth.org

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."

  • Statement in support of Architects and Engineers petition:

    Regarding 9/11 "There are many lines of evidence to conclude that explosive demolition of all three buildings was a reality.  The simplest and most convincing is the free-fall acceleration of the collapsing buildings.  Simple High School level physics is all one needs to understand this.

    Although I am not a member of the civil engineering or architectural professional community, I have trained and had careers in technical fields.  The evidence presented by both Richard Gage and Professor Jones is so straightforward that professional status is not a requirement to understanding these facts.  Their extreme competence and courage are to be commended."  http://www.ae911truth.org

PILOTS FOR 9/11 TRUTH

Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an association of more than 60 pilots and aviation professionals dedicated to determining the truth about 9/11. 

Association Statement: "Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe that have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day since the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers."

Editor's note: In August 2006, Pilots for 9/11 Truth received from the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) a copy of the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) data of Flight 77, which, according to the official account, hit the Pentagon.

The association conducted a professional analysis of the data and has concluded, "The information provided by the NTSB does not support the 9/11 Commission Report of American Airlines Flight 77 impact with the Pentagon."

Most notably, the altitude of Flight 77 upon reaching the Pentagon was more than 200 feet too high to have impacted the building.  At this altitude it could also not have downed the five light poles, as reported, nor could it have been the aircraft shown in the stop-action photos of the impact at the Pentagon, provided by the Defense Department.

Additionally, the FDR data reveals the path taken by Flight 77 as it approached the Pentagon differs significantly from the official account, in that it approached the Pentagon from north of the Navy Annex and CITGO gas station, considerably north of the official account.  This more northerly approach is corroborated by the testimony of Pentagon Police Officers Sgt. Chadwick Brooks and Sgt. William Lagasse, who were on duty at or near the CITGO gas station on 9/11 and who were eyewitnesses to the impact.  The PentaCon documentary recorded the testimony of these two officers and several other witnesses who also corroborate this flight path.

This more northerly flight path is also inconsistent with the swath of destruction inside the Pentagon, which runs from the southwest to northeast, as reported in the Pentagon Building Damage Report.  The more northerly flight path is also inconsistent with Flight 77 downing the five light poles.  See the association's one-hour video documentary and press release for more details.
