Ever wonder why the dirty Mossad holds some Washington political tricksters tightly by their b....? The dirty Mossad has secrets which, if revealed, would plunge 'us' into disgrace and utter impecuniousity.
The ultra secret agency has secrets gathered about Pearl Harbor, JFK, MLK, RFK, Waco, Africa, Gander, Flight 800, 9-11 and many more - the Israelis have never forgiven 'us' for 'our' collaboration with the Nazis.
Think it was only German politicians accused of crimes? Imagine that after Hitler and his associates were accused of the Holocaust, a number of Nazis were admitted into the United States.
The dirty Mossad, instead of fighting 'us', they have sought to prey on 'us' like ticks because of the voluminous dossier compiled since 1941.
This means therefore that anything the dirty Mossad requests from Washington, it has to be provided with a smile; and any crime committed by the dirty Mossad must be covered up.
THE 9-11 CHARGES which will not disappear (based on the statute-of-limitations):
(1) Murder of Pentagon staff
(b) Murder of TWC tenants
(c) Murder of passengers in Flight 93
(d) Murder of thousands of US soldiers in Afghanistan
(e) Murder of US soldiers in Iraq
This swindle was the most sophisticated, most elaborate, which involved many agencies, and thugs; and the most successful in terms of the loot. The 'war-on-terror' alone has raked in billions.
Operation 9-11 included the Pentagon 2.6 trillion dollar swindle; Brady Bonds scam, (Interestingly the Brady Bonds, due September 12, 2001 were underwritten by Cantor Fitzgerald and the paperwork held in the top floor offices of the WTC, all blown up on September 11, 2001. What was the jackpot? The holders of certain instruments did not have to pay.); 70 billion California electricity swindle; WTC gold bullion robbery; numerous WTC, Pentagon, etc.etc., Insurance frauds; destruction of Worldcom and Enron criminal files; Put Options scam; Leo Wanta Money Swindle;War on Terror scam; over 3000 criminal files in WTC 7 alone; and many more.
But wait! Not all participants wanted cash only. Some of the thugs want laws to cripple the citizenry's right to free speech. Laws to prevent people from talking about past criminal activities. Why make laws which prevent people from criticizing the Holocaust, for example, when all we have to do is to bring forth solid proof that the incidents under Hitler did occur?
Firstly, the alleged plane entering one of the Twin Towers with every single part disappearing into the concrete and steel structure, is basic computer trick. This kind of incident could not occur. It does not matter how many times the 9-11 hoods try to say it did! Imagine the nose of this plane entered and exited through concrete and steel without sustaining significant damage!
The thugs blasted the Twin Towers to 'take out' Cantor Fitzgerald and Aeon companies. Then they blasted the Pentagon to kill those who knew too much, and also to shut down Pentagon defensive capabilities.
But wait folks! What if the holes made for the 'planes' to enter the WTC were created by workmen or missiles before the objects entered? WTC workers complained about dust as a result of knocking and drilling of WTC walls prior September 11.
We hear from New York 'finest' that one of the so-called planes was actually a truck painted like a plane! Two men jumped out but Po-lice caught them. Where are they?
Poor John O'Neil, frustrated by the al Qaeda operatives in the Department, he resigned and procured a job arranged by his nemises and later killed on d-day.
We suspected foul play when the fools started to exhibit oppositional disorder; that is - opposing every conspiracy theory which surfaced; including vehemently denying that explosives were used to bring down the buildings.
The World Trade Center (Centro Mondiale Comerciale) was constructed based on ideas of Intel Operatives from Permindex, et al; religious con men, and Nostradamus fanatics who saw their retirement benefits in those buildings. The Port Authority advised that there was too much Asbestos in the Towers and so repairs had to be done. Estimates suggested US$1 billion. Lucky and his associates were just ready to lease the buildings and he was so very Lucky that he immediately insured the Towers against terrorism. And guess what? In six weeks "inside terrorists" knocked those buildings down! One should note that years prior 9-11, the tricksters began to mark the WTC as structures that would crumble and fall into the sea as allegedly predicted by Nostradamus. And so, a few weeks before the caper, they consolidated their holdings on the complex and insured it against terrorism, and procured billions. Walla!
You know folks, there was an episode on one major television network when a uniformed officer was given the opportunity on Prime Time television to utter some words never before allowed in the United States media. This 'officer' angry at the carnage of 9-11 said: "bin Laden - kiss my...ass".
Ordinarilly, this sort of comment would be rediculed; but we were all so angry that it was condoned.
Then subsequent to 9-11 we had the slaughter in Iraq and Afghanistan - as former State Department official Lawrence Wilkerson reported, that more than 100 deaths of detainess occurred in US custody. 25 were homicides.
Folks! What if all the carnage and slaughter occurred because some of our own thug citizens orchestrated September 11th?
The local terrorists organized the scam with certain precisions. For example, they groomed a madman Zacharias Moussaoui, to take the fall.
As early as the morning of September 11, 2001, the terrorists had a private jet tracking Flight 93, claiming that it was gathering evidence to prosecute Moussaoui. [Incidentally, Flight 93 was stuffed with the bodies of the passengers from the other '9-11' Flights; and was in the air ready to be blown to bits]
"An official for NetJets, a company that sells shares in private business aircraft, confirmed that the plane tracking Flight 93 belonged to the company. The official, who asked not to be identified by name, said the company was asked not to comment on the Sept. 11 flight but would not say who made the request. Sept. 11 video, photos might be shown at Moussaoui trial."
One should note that at the lynching of the said Moussaoui, not one alleged mastermind testified; and also none of these alleged masterminds were allowed to testify elsewhere. Why? Can you imagine the real terrorists putting their masterminds on public trial? The masterminds could expose the whole thing by identifying the insiders who arranged the scam.
9-11 was the beginning of Operation New World Order. A program designed to rule Third World idiots.
9-11 was an operation to test certain missiles, aircraft and weapons like the Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL); stealth technology including the drone and morphing whereby voices of individuals like Mark Bingham could be duplicated.
(Incidentally, on 9-11 several persons were arrested on the scene in New York but those arrests were never heard of in the Moussaoui trial. Why?)
Mossad operatives were arrested with explosives on 9-11. What happen to them?
In fact about 60 Mossad agents were arrested for suspicious activities on and after 9-11. One terrorist on the most wanted list was the man who owned the 'box cutters'; yet he was wisked out of the United States to safe haven in Israel.
Dig this folks! About 90 little thugs were given ID's and placed in the nation's airport system to manipulate the 9-11 scam. These individuals were secretly deported after the caper. Note here carefully, that the exact methodology was applied in the JFK scam. There were numerous false agents in Dealy Plaza 'flashing' badges.
The 9-11 thugs arranged successfully for maximum financial gain. However, the logistics section of the scam left much to be desired.
Some of the most critical mistakes were:
(1) The rocket-speed APB on the 19 bush men published by the FBI. This stupid prank was the work of the Dirty MOSSAD. You see, the MOSSAD generally supply some of alQaeda's Washington Bureau fake data. Why? MOSSAD needs to blackmail Washington alQaeda bosses. Frankly, when one publishes such crap regarding such lucid details of 19 bush men within hours of the attacks, even though there was no manifest showing one single name of any of the bush men; it shows how gullible the fbi really is! Also, importantly, the undertakers did not identify any of the bodies of the bush men!!
(2) Imagine a plane crashed and burned yet one hyjacker's passport flew out into a Manhattan street in pristine condition.
(3) The demolition of Building 7 was the most stupid prank by the terrorists. Building 7 was constructed in 1985 with steel and concrete. It was not as old as the North and South towers; yet it fell in seconds even though only a few pebbles hit it. Who these lunatics trying to fool?
(4) The criminal removal of the forensic evidence from the scenes; i.e., WTC metals and the paving of the Pentagon lawn.
(5) The suppression of data from investigators of the crime
(6) In Shanksville, a 757 with a massive wingspan crashed and left a twenty-feet hole in the ground. How could thugs try to sell that crap?
(7) At the Pentagon, a 757 crashed and left a small hole in the building. Photograph shows the building intact after the alleged strike. In fact, unlike Shanksville, the 757 went through a window at the 'Pentagon'.
(8) 19 bush men controlled the skies of the United States for two hours under the watch of the alleged most powerful military on the planet. Imagine that NORAD, the SS, and NMCC were all hoodwinked by a few bush men from Afghanistan. Really?
(9) Law enforcement officers in New York reported missiles being shot from the Woolworth Building. It appeared that the missiles were creating the holes in the WTC as seen on television.
(10) The Great Canary Mouth Rummy, D. H. Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense confirmed that missiles were used at WTC and the Pentagon.
While the plan exhibited some expertise, there were some real crackpots manning the show. For example, trying to sell the crazy idea that Flight 93 crashed and left a 20 feet hole in the ground; that Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and left a 16 feet hole in the first floor even though the plane was 44 feet high; that a plane flying at 235 feet high knocked down a light pole; that planes crashed and left the wrong engines on the ground; that a silly twin engine novice flew a 757 at 400 miles an hour and performed feat that military pilots could not and cannot do; that 757's crashed and all parts evaporated; and that all the hijackers bodies evaporated and left other passengers' for positive DNA identification; allowing fire to burn for 100 days after planes crashed into the Twin Towers at temperature of over 1300 degrees, allegedly caused by kerosine; claiming that cockpit voice recorder recorded passengers voices and that passenger called his own mother and said: "Mum, this is Mark Bingham." Critically, from the morning of 9-11 the hoods tried to sell the idea that Osama bin Laden committed the crime and swayed the public from other credible evidence.
Immediately after the scam, the thugs planted their twisters to label Osama bin Laden, and they launched a massive eavesdropping campaign to listen in on those who had doubts about the official story.
This was not the first time the Enterprise tapped the phones of Americans. They did it when they murdered John F. Kennedy; and they did it during the seventies. (See CIA, Family Jewels, published in 2007)
Land fill cemetery
al Qaeda thugs burried the people in a landfill and did not allow for proper search by families to conduct proper burials. Why? Well al Qaeda could not afford that! What if John Doe's body from Shanksville turned up at WTC? And what if Jane Doe's body from WTC turned up in Shanksville? What if bodies which were never in the locations described by al Qaeda, turned up in the landfill?
This 9-11 crime warrants a public high grade lynching for the perpetrators broadcast live on all major networks.
There has never been a period when so many news reporters were murdered; including two of the most popular. Those two made statements about demolition of the Towers on September 11th, and so they were targeted and their phones and homes bugged.
Never in the history of the world, did so many bio-chemical scientists die in such short period.
Dig this folks! If it wasn't for a few ladies called 'The Jersey Girls' there would be no investigation into the nation's worst incident.
Question: We heard that some wicked masterminds were caught. Where are they?
NYCFD lost the most firemen in any one incident in the history of Uncle Sam. Why isn't NYCFD launching an investigation into the numerous inconsistences in the Official Bogus Report? Has any top dog wearing fireman's uniform shared in the 9-11 loot?
Subsequent to the 9-11 caper, al Qaeda bosses can do everything that come to their little minds, in the name of 'The War On Terror'.
INCIDENTALLY folks - the capture of the alleged 'masterminds' was not to prosecute them, but rather to silence them. For example, Saddam Hussein and his sons were not taken out because anyone thought they had anything to do with 9-11. They were executed because they knew about the Enterprise's plan as far back as year 2000. The 'war-on-terror' scam originated basically to silence the September 11th accomplices.
Fact! Do you know of the trial of one alleged 'mastermind' who testified in the 9-11 scam?
And hear this! Even if you hear of one testifying he'll be a double made up for the Game
Fact! Anytime the 9-11 thugs start prosecuting the alleged 'masterminds' six to eight years after they were allegedly arrested and held in custody; someone should go to the courtroom and grab the masks off those alleged 'masterminds'; because those who were actually accused, were 'taken out' long ago. They are not alive; including the legendary CIA agent Osama bin Laden.
Folks, any investigator who creates the crap about the 'pancaking' of the Twin Towers should be tried for treason.
Look acrefully at one video where the entire 12 or so floors were blown off into pure dust by explosives. If the top was blown off, what caused the 'pancake'?
I suppose you heard that everyone was confused on 9-11 - that the faa failed to warn al Qaeda about the 'hyjackings' and so the Military could not respond. Hogwash! FAA notified everyone regarding the unfolding events and all of them were listening:

[ACTUAL TEXT from 5/22/03 Official FAA Statement follows:]
FAA communications with NORAD
On September 11, 2001
Within minutes after the first aircraft hit the World Trade Center, the FAA immediately established several phone bridges that included FAA field facilities, the FAA Command Center, FAA headquarters, DOD, the Secret Service, and other government agencies.The US Air Force liaison to the FAA immediately joined the FAA headquarters phone bridge and established contact with NORAD on a separate line.
The FAA shared real-time information on the phone bridges about the unfolding events, including information about loss of communication with aircraft, loss of transponder signals, unauthorized changes in course, and other actions being taken by all the flights of interest, including Flight 77. Other parties on the phone bridges, in turn, shared information about actions they were taking.
NORAD logs indicate that the FAA made formal notification about American Flight 77 at 9:24 a.m., but information about the flight was conveyed continuously during the phone bridges before the formal notification.

UNITED 93 DATA PROVIDED BY US GOVERNMENT DOES NOT SUPPORT OBSERVED EVENTS
Pilots for 9/11 Truth, an international organization of pilots and aviation professionals, petitioned the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) via the Freedom of Information Act to obtain United Flight 93 Flight Data Recorder information, consisting of a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file and Flight Path Animation, allegedly derived from Flight 93 Flight Data Recorder (FDR). The data provided by the NTSB contradict observed events in several significant ways:
The NTSB Flight Path Animation approach path and altitude does not support observations.
All Altitude data on the northern approach contradicts witnesses published by the New York Times.
Witness observations of approach path contradict northern approach as described by Popular Mechanics and the US Govt. Several witnesses observed the aircraft approaching from southeast over Indian Lake and from the south prior to witnessing explosion. Parts found in New Baltimore, 8 miles southeast of crater is a direct contradiction to the northern approach claimed by the US Govt.
Environmental Protection Agency reports no soil contamination of jet fuel after testing 5,000-6,000 yards of earth including 3 ground wells. Smoke plume photographed by a witness does not suggest a jet fuel rich explosion.
Impact angle according to Flight Data Recorder does not support an almost vertical impact as the govt story and crater suggests.
In May, 2007, members of Pilots for 9/11 Truth received these documents from the NTSB and began a close analysis of the data they contain. After expert review and cross check, Pilots for 9/11 Truth has concluded that the information in these NTSB documents does not support, and in some instances factually contradicts, the official government position that United Airlines Flight 93 created the impact crater as reported, in Somerset County, PA on the morning of September 11, 2001 .According to the US Govt, United Airlines Flight 93 approached Somerset County from the North-Northwest at a high altitude on the morning of September 11, 200 1 . However, many witnesses contradict altitude as well as approach path. Also according to reports, and as the impact crater suggests, United Airlines Flight 93 impacted terrain at an almost vertical 90 degree angle, while the Flight Data Recorder shows a 35 degree angle with up-sloping terrain, further reducing impact angle.
The information provided by the US Government does not support reports of United Airlines Flight 93 approach, impact angles, and lack of jet fuel at Somerset Country, PA.
Pilots for 9/11 Truth is committed to discovering the truth surrounding the events of September 11, 2001 . We have contacted both the NTSB and the FBI regarding these and other inconsistencies. To date, they have refused to comment on, correct, refute, retract or offer side-letters that might explain the discrepancies between what they claim are the data extracted from the FDR of United Flight 93 and the events observed. .As concerned citizens and professionals in the aviation industry, Pilots for 9/11 Truth asks, why have these discrepancies not been addressed by agencies within the United States Government? Pilots for 9/11 Truth takes the position that an official government inquiry into these discrepancies is warranted and long overdue. We call upon our fellow citizens to write to their Congressional representatives to inform them of these discrepancies and call for an immediate investigation into this matter.

WHO doubt the rediculous official story?
Eight U.S. State Department Veterans Challenge the Official Account of 9/11
By Alan Miller
Official Account of 9/11: “Flawed”, “Absurd”, “Totally Inadequate”, “a Cover-up”January 5, 2008 – Eight U.S. State Department veterans have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation. “There is no question in my mind, that there is enough evidence to justify a very comprehensive and hard hitting investigation of the kind we have not seen, with subpoenas, general questioning of people, releasing a lot of documents,” said Daniel Ellsberg, PhD, in a 2006 interview with Jack Blood. 
Dr. Ellsberg is one of many signers of a petition to reinvestigate 9/11.  Best known for leaking the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times in 1971, Dr. Ellsberg is a former U.S. State Department envoy to Viet Nam and Special Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense. Another State Department critic of the official account of 9/11 is Col. Ann Wright, who said in a 2007 interview with Richard Greene on the Air America Radio Network, “It's incredible some of these things that still are unanswered. The 9/11 Report -- that was totally inadequate. I mean the questions that anybody has after reading that.”  Col. Wright is one of three U.S. State Department officials to publicly resign in direct protest of the invasion of Iraq in March, 2003. She joined the Foreign Service in 1987 and served for 16 years as a U.S. Diplomat, including assignments as Deputy Chief of Mission of U.S. Embassies in Sierra Leone, Micronesia and Afghanistan. She helped reopen the U.S. Embassy in Kabul in December, 2001. She also served for 13 years on active duty and 16 additional years on reserve duty with the U.S. Army.
She continued in her interview with Greene: “How could our national intelligence and defense operations be so inept that they could not communicate; that they could not scramble jets; that they could not take defensive action? And I totally agree, I always thought the Pentagon had all sorts of air defense equipment around it; that they could take out anything that was coming at it. And for a plane to be able to just fly low right over Washington and slam into that thing is just -- I mean, you still just shake your head. How in the world could that happen?”Fred Burks, former Presidential interpreter, is another State Department veteran who questions the official account of 9/11 and who signed the petition to reinvestigate. “How is it possible that our military's highly touted missile detection systems could not locate Flight 77 in the 42 minutes it was known to be lost before it crashed into the heart of the defense system of the U.S.?,” he asked in an essay. During his 18-year State Department career, Mr. Burks served as interpreter for Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Vice Presidents Dick Cheney and Al Gore, Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright and many others. Mr. Burks continued, “An even bigger question is why isn't our media asking these questions? Why isn't our military spending many millions of dollars to find out why military defense systems failed on 9/11? Why is it that the 9/11 commission budget was far less than the budget allotted to the Challenger Disaster or even the Monika Lewinsky affair? Why aren't we, the public, asking these questions and demanding answers?”Melvin Goodman, PhD, is another former State Department employee who signed the petition to reinvestigate 9/11. He served as a Senior Analyst at the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research. Dr. Goodman also later served as Division Chief of the CIA’s Office of Soviet Affairs and as Professor of International Security at the National War College, 1986 - 2004. In testimony before a 2005 Congressional briefing on the 9/11 Commission Report, Dr. Goodman said, “I want to talk about the [9/11] Commission itself, about the flawed process of the Commission and finally about the conflict of interest within the Commission that is extremely important to understand the failure of the Commission. … The final report is ultimately a coverup. I don't know how else to describe it.” Dr. Goodman is currently Senior Fellow at the Center for International Policy and Adjunct Professor of Government at Johns Hopkins University.
Another former career Foreign Service Officer who questions the official account of 9/11 is Michael Springmann. He is also one of many signers of the petition to reinvestigate 9/11.In a speech at the National Press Club, Mr. Springmann said, “I used to be in charge of the visa section at the CIA's Consulate in Jeddah. ... There for a year and a half I issued visas to terrorists recruited by the CIA and its asset Osama Bin Laden. ... Fifteen of the nineteen people who allegedly flew airplanes into buildings in the United States got their visas from the same CIA Consulate at Jeddah.” 
Michael SpringmannGeorge Kenney
During his more than 20 years of U.S. government service, Mr. Springmann worked at both the State Department and the Foreign Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Among his many assignments, Mr. Springman served as Consular Officer in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he supervised the issuance of visas.In a later interview with the BBC, Mr. Springmann said, “In Saudi Arabia I was repeatedly ordered by high level State Dept officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants. These were, essentially, people who had no ties either to Saudi Arabia or to their own country. I complained bitterly at the time there. I returned to the US, I complained to the State Dept here, to the General Accounting Office, to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and to the Inspector General's office. I was met with silence. ... What I was protesting was, in reality, an effort to bring recruits, rounded up by Osama Bin Laden, to the US for terrorist training by the CIA. They would then be returned to Afghanistan to fight against the then-Soviets.”  Another State Department veteran publicly questioning the official account of 9/11 is former career Foreign Service Officer, George Kenney, who served as Yugoslav desk officer at the State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. He resigned his commission in 1991 over U.S. policy towards the Yugoslav conflict. He then served as consultant in residence at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Currently he’s a consultant and commentator on foreign affairs and current events. In a commentary after a 2007 interview of David Ray Griffin, PhD, Mr. Kenney said, “We should strive to clearly separate what we know from things we don't. Thus, we have a reasonably high level of confidence that the Establishment conspiracy narrative is absurd. The World Trade Center structures came down through controlled demolition. Flight 93 was shot down over rural Pennsylvania. And whatever it was that hit the Pentagon could not have been Flight 77. Further, whatever his peripheral involvement, the planning and implementation of 9/11 did not originate with Osama bin Laden.” 
Michael Mennard, PhD, is another U.S. State Department veteran who questions the official account of 9/11 and calls for a new investigation. Among his assignments as a career Foreign Service Officer, Dr. Mennard served as Regional Public Affairs Officer in India.In a statement to this author, Dr. Mennard wrote, “I am concerned about the numerous inconsistencies in the official account of 9/11. I support a new investigation regarding the tragic events of that day, the events leading up to it, and subsequent efforts to ignore the whole matter.”
Shortly after the release of the 9/11 Commission Report, a group of over 100 prominent Americans signed a petition  urging Congress to immediately reinvestigate 9/11. In addition to six former CIA officials,  the signers included Daniel Ellsberg, Melvin Goodman, Fred Burks, Michael Springman (all mentioned above), and Edward Peck.Edward Peck served as Deputy Coordinator, Covert Intelligence Programs at the State Department. He later served as Deputy Director of the White House Task Force on Terrorism under President Ronald Reagan. Mr. Peck, a 32-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, also served as U.S. Ambassador and Chief of Mission in Iraq (1977 - 1980).
The petition stated, in part, “We want truthful answers to questions such as: 1. Why were standard operating procedures for dealing with hijacked airliners not followed that day? 2. Why were the extensive missile batteries and air defenses reportedly deployed around the Pentagon not activated during the attack? 3. Why did the Secret Service allow Bush to complete his elementary school visit, apparently unconcerned about his safety or that of the schoolchildren?4. Why hasn't a single person been fired, penalized, or reprimanded for the gross incompetence we witnessed that day? 5. Why haven't authorities in the U.S. and abroad published the results of multiple investigations into trading that strongly suggested foreknowledge of specific details of the 9/11 attacks, resulting in tens of millions of dollars of traceable gains?”These questions and many others still remain unanswered three years after the petition was submitted and six years after the terrible events of 9/11. As the statements of these eight U.S. State Department veterans show, the need for a new thorough and independent investigation of 9/11 is not a matter of partisan politics, nor the demand of irresponsible, deranged, or disloyal Americans. It is instead a matter of the utmost importance for America’s security and the future of the entire world. Statements questioning the official account of 9/11 and calls for a new investigation by more than 800 credible individuals can be found at http://patriotsquestion911.com/Additional information about prominent skeptics of the official account of 9/11 can be found in the author's other articles on this subject, listed below.

911 Truth Statement
Respected Leaders and Families Launch 9/11 Truth Statement Demanding Deeper Investigation into the Events of 9/11
NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) -
An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the government had foreknowledge and "consciously failed to act," with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation.
Focusing on twelve questions, the Statement highlights areas of incriminating evidence that were either inadequately explored or ignored by the Kean Commission, ranging from insider trading and hijacker funding to foreign government forewarnings and inactive defenses around the Pentagon. The Statement asks for four actions: an immediate investigation by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Congressional hearings, media analysis, and the formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry.
The Statement's list of signatories includes notables spanning the political spectrum, from Presidential candidates Ralph Nader, Michael Badnarik, and David Cobb to Catherine Austin Fitts, a member of the first Bush administration, as well as Washington veterans like Pentagon whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Other signers range from peace activists like Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans and Global Exchange's Kevin Danaher to former US Ambassador and Chief of Mission to Iraq, Edward L. Peck; from environmentalists like Randy Hayes and John Robbins to business leaders such as Paul Hawken and Karl Schwarz, CEO of Patmos Nanotechnologies; from populist journalist Ronnie Dugger to renowned investigative reporter Kelly Patricia O'Meara. The Statement also includes 43 noted authors, including New York Times #1 bestseller John Gray, as well as 18 eminent professors, historians, and theologians. Other notables include five-term Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, singers Michelle Shocked and Michael Franti, and actors Ed Asner and Mimi Kennedy.
The Statement was facilitated by 911truth.org, a leading coalition. The organization has also announced a press conference outside of Eliot Spitzer's Manhattan office (corner of Cedar and Nassau) at 2:00PM on Thursday, Oct. 28th where 9/11 family members and victim group representatives will file a formal complaint demanding the first criminal investigation of 9/11 events by the New York Attorney General.
We Want Real Answers About 9/11
On August 31, 2004, Zogby International, the official North American political polling agency for Reuters, released a poll that found nearly half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of those in New York state believe US leaders had foreknowledge of impending 9/11 attacks and "consciously failed" to act. Of the New York City residents, 66% called for a new probe of unanswered questions by Congress or the New York Attorney General. In connection with this news, we have assembled 100 notable Americans and 40 family members of those who died to sign this 9/11 Statement, which calls for immediate public attention to unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.
We want truthful answers to questions such as:
Why were standard operating procedures for dealing with hijacked airliners not followed that day?
Why were the extensive missile batteries and air defenses reportedly deployed around the Pentagon not activated during the attack?
Why did the Secret Service allow Bush to complete his elementary school visit, apparently unconcerned about his safety or that of the schoolchildren?
Why hasn't a single person been fired, penalized, or reprimanded for the gross incompetence we witnessed that day?
Why haven't authorities in the U.S. and abroad published the results of multiple investigations into trading that strongly suggested foreknowledge of specific details of the 9/11 attacks, resulting in tens of millions of dollars of traceable gains?
Why has Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator who claims to have knowledge of advance warnings, been publicly silenced with a gag order requested by Attorney General Ashcroft and granted by a Bush-appointed judge?
How could Flight 77, which reportedly hit the Pentagon, have flown back towards Washington D.C. for 40 minutes without being detected by the FAA's radar or the even superior radar possessed by the US military?
How were the FBI and CIA able to release the names and photos of the alleged hijackers within hours, as well as to visit houses, restaurants, and flight schools they were known to frequent?
What happened to the over 20 documented warnings given our government by 14 foreign intelligence agencies or heads of state?
Why did the Bush administration cover up the fact that the head of the Pakistani intelligence agency was in Washington the week of 9/11 and reportedly had $100,000 wired to Mohamed Atta, considered the ringleader of the hijackers?
Why did the 911 Commission fail to address most of the questions posed by the families of the victims, in addition to almost all of the questions posed here?
Why was Philip Zelikow chosen to be the Executive Director of the ostensibly independent 911 Commission although he had co-authored a book with Condoleezza Rice?
Those who are demanding deeper inquiry now number in the hundreds of thousands, including a former member of the first Bush administration, a retired Air Force colonel, a European parliamentarian, families of the victims, highly respected authors, investigative journalists, peace and justice leaders, former Pentagon staff, and the National Green Party.
As Americans of conscience, we ask for four things:
An immediate investigation by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer
Immediate investigation in Congressional Hearings.
Media attention to scrutinize and investigate the evidence.
The formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry.
Given the importance of the coming election, we feel it is imperative that these questions be addressed publicly, honestly, and rigorously so that Americans may exercise their democratic rights with full awareness.
In closing, we pray and hope for the strength to approach this subject with wisdom and compassion so that we may heal from the wounds inflicted on that terrible day.

Der erbitterte Streit um den 11. The bitter dispute over 11 September
In den USA, aber auch in der Schweiz werden immer wieder bohrende Fragen gestellt zu den Terroranschlägen vom 11. In the U.S., but also in Switzerland are always bohrende questions on the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 (9/11) und den dadurch ausgelösten Kriegen in Afghanistan und im Irak. September 2001 (9 / 11) and thereby triggered wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Von Daniele Ganser* From Daniele Ganser *
Im Irak-Krieg gehe es nicht um Terrorbekämpfung, sondern in erster Linie um die Kontrolle der weltweit abnehmenden Vorräte an Erdöl und Erdgas, ist der Amerikaner Fadel Gheit, ehemals Manager beim Erdölkonzern ExxonMobil, überzeugt. The Iraq war is not going to fight against terrorism, but primarily for control of the world's dwindling stocks of oil and natural gas, is the American Fadel Gheit, a former manager at the oil group ExxonMobil, is convinced. «Unsere Lebensweise in den USA setzt täglich 20 Millionen Barrel voraus, von denen die Hälfte importiert werden muss. "Our life in the USA is 20 million barrels a day ahead, half of which were imported. Wir gleichen einem Patienten auf Erdöldialyse», so Gheit. We match a patient on oil dialysis, "says Gheit. «Hier geht es um Leben und Tod.» "This is about life and death."
Saddam Hussein, der gestürzte Diktator des Irak, trage entgegen den Behauptungen von Vizepräsident Dick Cheney keine Verantwortung für 9/11 und habe auch keine Atombombe angestrebt, protestiert Scott Ritter, ehemals Uno-Inspektor im Irak. Saddam Hussein, the dictator of Iraq gestürzte, wearing contrary to the assertions by Vice President Dick Cheney not responsible for 9 / 11 and have no atomic bomb sought protested Scott Ritter, former UN inspector in Iraq. «Uns werden eine Menge Lügen erzählt, und die Medien folgen blind und wiederholen diese Lügen. "We are a lot of lies told, and the media follow blindly and repeat these lies. Die Bush-Regierung hat die Daten manipuliert, um die Invasion des Irak zu begründen.» The Bush administration has manipulated the data to the invasion of Iraq to justify. "
Afghanistan diene als Durchgangsland für Erdöl- und Erdgaspipelines vom Kaspischen Meer zum Indischen Ozean sowie als Militärbasis, um den Nahen Osten «unter dem Vorwand der Terrorismusbekämpfung» zu umzingeln, so Michael Ruppert, ehemals Polizist beim Los Angeles Police Departement. Afghanistan serves as a transit country for oil and gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea to the Indian Ocean and as a military base to the Middle East "under the pretext of combating terrorism" to encircle, as Michael Ruppert, a former policeman in the Los Angeles Police Department.
Drei Theorien Three theories
Die These vom grossen geostrategischen Kampf der Supermächte USA, Russland und China um die schwindenden Erdöl- und Erdgasreserven ist auf den ersten Blick einleuchtend, und nicht zuletzt wegen des steigenden Erdölpreises auch in Europa weit verbreitet. The thesis of great geo-strategic struggle of the superpowers United States, Russia and China by the dwindling oil and gas reserves is at first sight obvious, not least because of rising oil prices also widespread in Europe. Problematisch ist sie trotzdem. The problem is it anyway. Denn sie wirft die fundamentale Frage auf, ob die US-Administration in erster Linie Terroristen oder Erdöl jagt. Because it raises the fundamental question of whether the U.S. administration primarily hunt terrorists or petroleum.
Es erstaunt daher nicht, dass der erbitterte Streit in den USA nicht auf die laufenden Kriege im Irak und in Afghanistan beschränkt blieb, sondern auch 9/11 erfasst hat, den mit 2973 Toten grössten Terroranschlag der Geschichte. It is perhaps not surprising that the bitter dispute in the U.S. in the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan remained limited, but also 9 / 11 has collected, with the 2973 deaths biggest terrorist attack in history. In den vergangenen fünf Jahren wurden in den USA verschiedene Filme, Internetseiten und Bücher zu 9/11 veröffentlicht. In the past five years in the U.S. several films, Internet sites and books on 9 / 11. Diese bilden heute eine nur schwer überschaubare Masse von Behauptungen und Gegenbehauptungen. These are now causing a serious manageable mass of allegations and counter allegations.
Drei sich gegenseitig ausschliessende 9/11-Theorien stehen sich gegenüber. Three other ausschliessende 9/11-Theorien opposing each other. Alle drei Theorien sind Verschwörungstheorien, obschon ihre Vertreter das gerne negieren. All three theories are conspiracy theories, although their representatives gladly deny. Dies heisst, sie gehen alle von einer geheimen Absprache von zwei oder mehr Akteuren vor dem 11. This means they will lose all of a secret agreement between two or more players before 11 September als gegeben aus. September, as given.
Die erste Theorie, die so genannte «Überraschungs-Theorie» (Surprise), stammt von der US-Regierung und wird von der offiziellen amerikanischen Untersuchung - dem «9/11 Commission Report» von Thomas Kean, der im Sommer 2004 erschien - unterstützt. The first theory, the so-called "Surprise theory" (Surprise), comes from the U.S. government and is supported by the official U.S. investigation - the "9 / 11 Commission Report" by Thomas Kean, who appeared in the summer of 2004 - supports. Sie ist die offizielle 9/11-Erzählung: Osama Bin Laden habe zusammen mit Khalid Sheikh Mohammed die Anschläge zuerst in Afghanistan geplant, worauf eine von Mohammed Atta angeführte Gruppe von 19 Muslimen den Terroranschlag in den USA mit vier Flugzeugen ausführte. It is the official 9/11-Erzählung: Osama Bin Laden, along with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the first attacks planned in Afghanistan, as one of Mohammed Atta-led group of 19 Muslims in the terrorist attack in the U.S. with four aircraft said. Bin Laden und sein Netzwerk seien der kriminellen Handlung schuldig. Bin Laden and his network are the criminal act guilty.
Die zweite Theorie, die so genannte «Let-It-Happen-on-Purpose-Theorie» («Lass es absichtlich passieren», Lihop), behauptet, Bin Laden und das Al-Qaida-Netzwerk hätten den Anschlag geplant und ausführen lassen. The second theory, called "Let-It-Happen-on-purpose theory" ( "Let it happen deliberately," Lihop), claims that Bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda network had planned the attack and run. Teile der US-Regierung hätten dies herausgefunden, den Anschlag aber trotzdem absichtlich nicht abgewehrt und fast 3000 Menschen geopfert, um eine Serie von Kriegen zu legitimieren, von denen jene in Afghanistan und im Irak nur die ersten zwei seien. Parts of the U.S. government had this figured out the attack but deliberately not repulsed and nearly 3000 people sacrificed to a series of wars to legitimize, of which those in Afghanistan and Iraq is only the first two. Sowohl Bin Laden als auch Teile der US-Regierung seien der kriminellen Handlung schuldig. Both Bin Laden as well as parts of the U.S. government are the criminal act guilty.
Die dritte Theorie schliesslich, die so genannte «Make-It-Happen-on-Purpose-Theorie» («Führe es absichtlich selbst aus», Mihop), behauptet, die Anschläge seien vom Pentagon und/oder den US-Geheimdiensten ausgeführt worden, die Videos von Bin Laden seien gefälscht. The third theory finally, the so-called "Make-It-Happen-on-purpose theory" (Take it from even intentionally, "Mihop), claimed the attacks were by the Pentagon and / or the U.S. secret services have been, the videos of bin Laden were faked. Fast 3000 Menschen seien kaltblütig geopfert und das eigene Volk und die Welt getäuscht worden, um eine Serie von Kriegen zu legitimieren. Nearly 3000 people were in cold blood and sacrificed their own people and the world has been deceived, a series of wars to legitimize. Teile der US-Regierung seien der kriminellen Handlung schuldig. Parts of the U.S. government are the criminal act guilty.
Kevin Barrett, der ein Seminar zum Islam an der University of Wisconsin-Madison unterrichtet, ist ein Mihop-Vertreter, wie er im Juni 2006 öffentlich erklärte. Kevin Barrett, a seminar on Islam at the University of Wisconsin-Madison teaches, is a Mihop representatives, as he said publicly in June 2006. Andere Amerikaner entsetzten sich. Other Americans horrified. Barrett «sei peinlich für die Universität und die Menschen in Wisconsin», so der republikanische Kongressabgeordnete Steve Nass, der zusammen mit anderen Republikanern die Universität aufforderte, Barret sofort zu entlassen. Barrett "is embarrassing for the university and the people in Wisconsin," said Republican Congressman Steve Nass, who together with other Republicans called on the university, Barret immediately dismissed.
Der Verwaltungschef der Universität, Patrick Farrell, wehrte sich und betonte die Freiheit in Lehre und Forschung. The administrative head of the university, Patrick Farrell, defended himself and said freedom in teaching and research. «Wir können nicht zulassen, dass politischer Druck von Kritikern unpopulärer Ideen den freien Austausch von Meinungen verhindert», so Farrell. "We can not allow political pressure from critics of unpopular ideas the free exchange of opinions prevented," says Farrell. «Das würde die Tür für noch schwerere und umfassende Einschränkungen öffnen.» Die Studenten seien durchaus in der Lage, abweichende Theorien zu analysieren und sich ihre eigene Meinung zu bilden. "This would be the door for even more severe restrictions on open and comprehensive." Students are perfectly capable, alternate theories to analyze and their own opinion. «Wissen wächst, wenn man über Meinungen streitet», so Farrell. "Knowledge grows when you have opinions dispute," says Farrell.
Auch James Fetzer, emeritierter Philosophieprofessor der Universität Minnesota, hält die Surprise-Theorie für Unsinn. Even James Fetzer, a philosophy professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota, holds the Surprise theory nonsense. Er denkt Lihop oder Mihop beschreiben die Wahrheit besser. He thinks Lihop or Mihop describe the truth better. Dafür wurde er wiederholt angegriffen, was ihn und andere Amerikaner aber nicht abschreckt. Instead, he repeatedly attacked what he and other Americans but not deter. «Wir werden das weitermachen», so Fetzer gegenüber CNN. "We will continue," says Fetzer to CNN. «Unsere Rolle ist es herauszufinden, was am 11. "Our role is to find out what, 11 September wirklich passiert ist.» September actually happened. "
Debatte in der Schweiz Debate in Switzerland
«Es erstaunt mich nicht, dass nach den Schwierigkeiten im Irak und in Afghanistan nun auch um 9/11 gestritten wird», so Kurt Spillmann, emeritierter ETH-Professor für Sicherheitspolitik. "It surprised me, that after the difficulties in Iraq and Afghanistan now also about 9 / 11 argument is," said Kurt Spillmann, ETH professor emeritus for Security Policy. «Man muss aber vorsichtig untersuchen, denn die Lihop- und Mihop-Theorien hätten eine unglaubliche politische Sprengkraft.» "It must be carefully examined, because the Lihop and Mihop theories have an incredible political explosive."
Welche Theorien die Schweizer Bevölkerung bevorzugt, ist noch unbekannt. Which theories prefer the Swiss population, is still unknown. «Eine breite Debatte zu diesen drei Theorien ist meines Wissens in der Schweiz noch nie öffentlich und im grossen Stil geführt worden. "A wide debate on these three theories is to my knowledge in Switzerland has never publicly and in style have been. Aber da und dort sind sie immer wieder aufgeflackert», so Professor Karl Haltiner, Leiter der jährlich erscheinenden Erhebungsstudie «Sicherheit» der Militärakademie der ETH. But here and there, they are always aufgeflackert, "says Professor Karl Haltiner, director of the annual survey study" safety "of the Military Academy of ETH.
Dass der amerikanische Geheimdienst bei 9/11 die Finger im Spiel hatte, hält «Weltwoche»-Journalist Hanspeter Born für einen «ungeheuerlichen Verdacht», wie er in einem Beitrag zum auch in der Schweiz weit verbreiteten Antiamerikanismus schreibt. The fact that the American secret service in 9 / 11 fingers in the game, believes "World Week journalist Hans Peter Born for a" monstrous suspicion ", as set out in a contribution to Switzerland in the widespread anti-Americanism writes. «Wenn dem so wäre, dann wäre Amerika tatsächlich ein bis ins Innerste verrottetes, krankes Land.» "If so, then America would actually a down to the innermost verrottetes, sick country."
Philipp Sarasin, Professor für Geschichte an der Universität Zürich, hat zu den Anthrax-Anschlägen, die auf 9/11 folgten, ein Buch vorgelegt, in dem er die Politik der Angst kritisch hinterfragt und die These vertritt, dass diese Brief-Anschläge möglicherweise ein «Inside-Job» waren. Philipp Sarasin, a professor of history at the University of Zurich, has led to the anthrax attacks on 9 / 11 followed by a book, in which the politics of fear and critically represents the thesis that this letter attacks may be a "Inside Job". 9/11 sei noch völlig ungeklärt: «Welche der drei 9/11-Theorien stimmt, muss durch Historiker weiter untersucht werden», so Sarasin. 9 / 11 was still completely unresolved: "Which of the three 9/11-Theorien true, historians must be further investigated," says Sarasin. «Doch schon heute lässt sich sagen, dass die offizielle Version - ‹Wir hätten uns nie denken können, dass wir durch Zivilflugzeuge angegriffen werden› - zumindest in einem Punkt nachweislich falsch ist: Solche Angriffe wurden seit Jahren als Möglichkeit in Betracht gezogen; im November 2000 wurde gar ein Angriff mit Zivilflugzeugen auf das Pentagon an einem grossen Gebäudemodell geübt.» "But today we can say that the official version -
Unter den vielen komplizierten Sachfragen, über die sich die drei Theorien streiten, ist auch World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7). Among the many complicated issues over which the three theories argue, is 7 World Trade Center (WTC 7). Es ist wenig bekannt, dass am 11. It is little known that on 11 September in New York nicht zwei Wolkenkratzer einstürzten - WTC 1 und WTC 2, die bekannten Twin Towers -, sondern drei. September in New York not two skyscrapers einstürzten - WTC 1 and WTC 2, the famous Twin Towers - but three. Beim dritten Gebäude handelt es sich um das 170 Meter hohe WTC 7, das um 17.20 Uhr in sieben Sekunden vollkommen zusammenstürzte. The third building is the 170 meter high WTC 7, the clock at 17.20 seconds in seven zusammenstürzte completely.
Misstrauen wegen WTC 7 Mistrust due to WTC 7
In einer Zogby-Umfrage vom Mai 2006 erklärten 43% der Amerikaner, sie hätten noch nie etwas von WTC 7 gehört. In a Zogby poll published on May 2006 said 43% of Americans, they had never been something of WTC 7. Dies vor allem deshalb, weil nur die Twin Towers wiederholt am Fernsehen gezeigt wurden. This is mainly because only the Twin Towers repeatedly shown on television. Verunsicherte 42% erklärten, sie glaubten, die US-Regierung und die 9/11-Untersuchung würden etwas verheimlichen. Verunsicherte 42% said they believed the U.S. government and the 9/11-Untersuchung would conceal something.
«Die Amerikaner sind schlecht und einseitig über 9/11 informiert worden, in erster Linie wurde die Surprise-Theorie auf allen Kanälen verbreitet», so Professor Albert Stahel von der Universität Zürich. "The Americans are bad and unilaterally on 9 / 11 has been informed, primarily Surprise was the theory on all channels disseminated," said Professor Albert Stahel of the University of Zurich. «Das rächt sich nun. "The rächt now. Alternative Medien haben zum Gegenschlag ausgeholt und verbreiten die Lihop- und die Mihop-Theorie. Alternative media have the opposite impact ausgeholt and disseminate Lihop and Mihop theory. Wer gewinnt, wird sich erst in Zukunft zeigen. Whoever wins will in the future. Das Misstrauen gegenüber der Regierung ist gross.» The distrust of the government is great. "
«Es gibt ein Problem mit WTC 7», erklärte der Schauspieler Charly Sheen, bekannt aus seinen Rollen in «Platoon» und «Wall Street». "There is a problem with WTC 7," said the actor Charlie Sheen, known from his roles in "Platoon" and "Wall Street". «Und wenn es ein Problem mit WTC 7 gibt, dann gibts ein Problem mit der ganzen 9/11-Geschichte», so Sheen im März 2006 am Radio. "And if there is a problem with WTC 7, it's a problem with the whole 9/11-Geschichte," says Sheen in March 2006 on the radio. WTC 7 könne nicht durch ein Flugzeug zum Einsturz gebracht worden sein, da es gar nie von einem Flugzeug getroffen wurde. WTC 7 could not by a plane has been brought to collapse, because it was never taken from an airplane. Es könne auch nicht durch ein Erdbeben oder den Einsturz der Twin Towers eingerissen worden sein, da zwischen dem Einsturz der Twin Towers und WTC 7 fast sieben Stunden liegen. It can not by an earthquake or the collapse of the Twin Towers eingerissen been, as between the collapse of the Twin Towers and 7 World Trade Center almost seven hours. Mögliche Ursachen seien nur Feuer oder Sprengung. Possible causes are only fire or explosives.
In der Tat gab es ein kleines Feuer in WTC 7. In fact, there was a small fire in WTC 7th Sheen zweifelt aber, dass dieses Feuer das WTC 7 zum Einsturz brachte. Sheen doubt but that this fire the WTC 7 to collapse. Wer das glaubt, «brauche psychiatrische Behandlung», so Sheen. Anyone who believes, "needs psychiatric treatment," says Sheen. Eine Sprengung brauche mehrere Tage Vorbereitung. A sprinkling need several days preparation. Osama Bin Laden und seine Helfer seien es wohl nicht gewesen, denn dafür wurden sie nie angeklagt. Osama Bin Laden and his assistants had probably not been there, because that's why they never indicted. Also bleibe nur Mihop. So stay only Mihop.
Sheens Aussagen führten zu einem heftigen Streit. Sheens statements led to a fierce dispute. «Wie kann irgendeine vernünftige Person glauben, dass unsere Regierung unser eigenes Volk angegriffen hat?», fragte ein Zuschauer auf CNN per E Mail. "How can any reasonable person believe that our government attacked our own people?", A spectator asked on CNN via e-mail. Ein anderer meinte: «Das ist eine ganz wichtige Sache, die in der breiten Öffentlichkeit diskutiert werden muss. Another said: "This is a very important thing to the general public needs to be discussed. Es ist unsere patriotische Pflicht herauszufinden, warum und wie 9/11 passieren konnte.» It is our patriotic duty to find out why and how 9 / 11 could happen. "
Sheen, unterstützt von Hollywoodstar Sharon Stone, blieb bei seiner Frage: «Ich bin einfach nur ein aufrechter amerikanischer Bürger, der seine Steuern bezahlt, sein Land liebt und der sich dagegen wehrt, dass solch grosser Unsinn über so offensichtliche Wahrheiten ausgebreitet wird.» Sheen, supported by Hollywood star Sharon Stone, remained at his question: "I'm just an upright American citizens who pay their taxes, loves his country and the fighting against that such large nonsense about so obvious and hidden truths."
Wer im 566 Seiten langen Kean-Report nach WTC 7 und der Ursache für dessen Einsturz sucht, wird enttäuscht. Who in the 566-page report to Kean WTC 7 and the cause of the collapse, you will be disappointed. WTC 7 wird im offiziellen Bericht zu 9/11 mit keinem Wort erwähnt. WTC 7 is the official report on 9 / 11 with no mention. Theologieprofessor David Ray Griffin kritisierte dieses «Weglassen und Verdrehen» scharf und publizierte ein viel beachtetes Buch zu den vielen Unzulänglichkeiten des Kean-Reports in dem er schreibt: «Die 9/11-Kommission umgeht ein anderes peinliches Problem - die Erklärung, wie WTC 7 in praktisch freiem Fall einstürzen konnte -, indem sie den Einsturz des Gebäudes einfach gar nicht erwähnt.» Theology professor David Ray Griffin criticized this "omitting and twisting" sharp and published a highly acclaimed book on the many inadequacies of the Kean report in which he writes: "The 9/11-Kommission avoids another embarrassing problem - the explanation of how WTC 7 in virtually free case could collapse - by the collapse of the building simply not mentioned.

"If the official and exhaustive investigation of 11 September nur vom Einsturz von zwei Wolkenkratzern berichtet, während in Tat und Wahrheit drei Wolkenkratzer in Manhattan einstürzten, dann fällt es schwer, den Kean-Report als solide historische Quelle für das Monumentalereignis 9/11 einzustufen», so Geschichtsprofessor Georg Kreis von der Universität Basel. September only by the collapse of two skyscrapers reported, while in reality three skyscrapers in Manhattan einstürzten, then it is difficult, the Kean report as a solid historical source for the monumental event 9 / 11 offences, "says Georg district of History from the University of Basel . «Von diesen Details wissen die wenigsten, aber sie sind Besorgnis erregend.» "From these details to know the least, but they are worrying."
Feuer oder Sprengung? Fire or blown up?
Peter Forster, Präsident der eidgenössischen Konsultativkommission für innere Sicherheit, betont, dass es auch für die Schweiz sehr wichtig ist zu wissen, ob der «Krieg gegen den Terrorismus» ein Vorwand ist, um Energieressourcen zu erbeuten. Peter Forster, president of the Federal Consultative for internal security, stresses that it is also for Switzerland is very important to know whether the "war against terrorism" is a pretext to energy resources erbeuten. «Die Debatte um WTC 7 muss man im Auge behalten, unbedingt. "The debate about WTC 7 must keep an eye, necessarily. Aber die Lihop- und Mihop-Theorien sind sehr explosiv, das wäre ungeheuerlich.» But the Lihop and Mihop theories are very explosive, that would be outrageous. "
In den USA hat die Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) im Mai 2002 einen Zwischenbericht vorgelegt, in dem sie erklärt, WTC 7 sei ein ganz spezielles Gebäude gewesen. In the U.S., the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) in May 2002 an interim report in which they declared, WTC 7 was a very special building. Das Pentagon, die CIA und der US Secret Service hätten Teile des Hauses gemietet. The Pentagon, the CIA and the U.S. Secret Service had parts of the house rented. Im Keller standen grosse Dieselgeneratoren, um das Haus während Notfällen mit Energie zu versorgen. In the basement were large diesel generators to the house during emergencies with energy. Es sei «zurzeit noch unbekannt», so das Fazit der Fema, «wie das Feuer das Haus zum Einsturz bringen konnte». It was "still unknown", says the conclusions of the Fema, "as the fire the house to collapse could bring". Die «New York Times» kommentierte, das WTC 7 sei das «grosse Geheimnis» der Anschläge, weil bis zu diesem Tag in den USA noch nie ein Gebäude aus Stahl und Beton nur wegen Feuer eingestürzt war. The "New York Times" commented that WTC 7 was the "big secret" of the attacks, because until that date in the U.S. have never been a building made of steel and concrete just because fire collapsed.
«Wir wissen einfach nicht, was im WTC 7 genau passiert ist», so Mario Fontana, amtierender Professor am ETH-Institut für Baustatik und Konstruktion (IBK). "We simply do not know what the WTC 7 exactly happened," says Mario Fontana, acting professor at the ETH Institute for building and construction (IBC). An Konferenzen von Baustatik-Experten habe man in den vergangenen fünf Jahren nur sehr wenig zum Einsturz von WTC 7 erfahren. At conferences of building experts have in the past five years very little to the collapse of WTC 7. Es sei zumindest denkbar, dass ein lange anhaltender Brand das Gebäude zum Einsturz gebracht habe. It is at least conceivable that a long sustained fire to the building collapse had been handled.
Die Fema gab das WTC-7-Dossier an das National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist) der Regierung weiter. The Fema, the WTC-7 dossier to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (nesting) of the government. Worauf verunsicherte Amerikaner und Journalisten anriefen und vom Nist wissen wollten, warum das WTC 7 einstürzte. What insecure Americans and journalists called nesting, and wanted to know why the WTC 7 collapsed. «Ich verstehe diese Faszination der Menschen für WTC 7 nicht», erwiderte Nist-Sprecher Michael Newman im März 2006. "I understand this fascination of people for WTC 7 is not", said nesting spokesman Michael Newman in March 2006.
«Nach meiner Meinung ist das Gebäude WTC 7 mit grosser Wahrscheinlichkeit fachgerecht gesprengt worden», sagt Hugo Bachmann, emeritierter ETH-Professor für Baustatik und Konstruktion. "In my opinion, the building WTC 7 with very likely been professionally blown," says Hugo Bachmann, ETH emeritus professor of building and construction. Und auch Jörg Schneider, ebenfalls emeritierter ETH-Professor für Baustatik und Konstruktion, deutet die wenigen vorhandenen Videoaufnahmen als Hinweise, dass «das Gebäude WTC 7 mit grosser Wahrscheinlichkeit gesprengt wurde». And Joerg Schneider, also ETH emeritus professor of building and construction, interprets the few existing video recordings as evidence that "the building WTC 7 with great probability was blown up."
Der Eigentümer von WTC 1, WTC 2 und WTC 7, Larry Silverstein, erinnerte sich ein Jahr nach den Anschlägen im September 2002 im US-Fernsehen an den Einsturz von WTC 7. The owner of the WTC 1, WTC 2 and WTC 7, Larry Silverstein, remembered one year after the attacks in September 2002 with U.S. television to the collapse of WTC 7th Die Feuerwehr habe ihn informiert, dass es im Haus brenne. The fire department had informed him that it is in the house burn. Darauf sagte Silverstein gemäss seinen eigenen Angaben: «Vielleicht ist es am besten, wenn wir es sprengen» («to pull it»). That said Silverstein according to its own figures: "Maybe it's best if we blow up" (to pull it "). «Und so haben sie entschieden, es zu sprengen, und wir schauten zu, wie das Gebäude runterkam.» Später verteidigte sich Silverstein, er habe mit «pull it» die «Feuerwehrmänner evakuieren» gemeint. "And they have decided to blow it, and we looked at how the building runterkam." Later Silverstein defended himself that he had with "pull it" the "firemen evacuate" meant. Worauf 9/11-Kritiker wie US-Millionär Jimmy Walter betonten, das sei Unsinn, «it» müsse sich auf eine Sache beziehen. What 9/11-Kritiker as U.S. millionaire Jimmy Walter stressed that this is nonsense, "it" needs to adapt to one thing.
Stahlträger in Asien Steel makers in Asia
Ob Feuer oder Sprengung zum Einsturz von WTC 7 führte, müsste man an den Stahlträgern untersuchen. Whether fire or explosives to collapse of WTC 7 led, it should be possible to the steel makers. Aber die sind weg. But they are gone. «Über 80% des Stahls des WTC ist schon verkauft worden, das meiste, wenn nicht sogar alles, bevor die Wissenschafter und Kriminologen es untersuchen konnten», protestierte Anthony Weiner, Parlamentarier aus New York, im März 2002 im US-Parlament. "About 80% of the steel of the WTC is already been sold, most, if not all, before the scientists and criminologists could investigate it," protested Anthony Weiner, members of parliament from New York, in March 2002 in the U.S. House. Der Stahl wurde in Asien recycelt. The steel was recycled in Asia. Professor Frederick Mowrer vom Fire Protection Engineering Department der University of Maryland, der zusammen mit anderen US-Experten den Zusammensturz der WTC-Gebäude untersuchen musste, kritisierte dieses Vorgehen scharf: «Ich finde die Geschwindigkeit, mit der wichtige Beweise weggeschafft und recycelt wurden, erschreckend.» Professor Frederick Mowrer, Fire Protection Engineering Department at the University of Maryland, together with other U.S. experts, the collapse of the WTC buildings had to investigate, sharply criticized this approach: "I think the speed with which important evidence and recycled weggeschafft were alarmingly .

Numerous Structural Engineers Now Publicly Challenge Government's Explanation for Destruction of the World Trade Center
Numerous structural engineers now publicly challenge the government's account of the destruction of the Trade Centers on 9/11, including:
Two professors of structural engineering at a prestigious Swiss university (Dr. Joerg Schneider and Dr. Hugo Bachmann) said that, on 9/11, World Trade Center 7 was brought down by controlled demolition
Kamal S. Obeid, structural engineer, with a masters degree in Engineering from UC Berkeley, of Fremont, California, says:
"Photos of the steel, evidence about how the buildings collapsed, the unexplainable collapse of WTC 7, evidence of thermite in the debris as well as several other red flags, are quite troubling indications of well planned and controlled demolition"
Ronald H. Brookman, structural engineer, with a masters degree in Engineering from UC Davis, of Novato California, writes:
"Why would all 110 stories drop straight down to the ground in about 10 seconds, pulverizing the contents into dust and ash - twice. Why would all 47 stories of WTC 7 fall straight down to the ground in about seven seconds the same day? It was not struck by any aircraft or engulfed in any fire. An independent investigation is justified for all three collapses including the surviving steel samples and the composition of the dust."
Graham John Inman, structural engineer, of London, England, points out:
"WTC 7 Building could not have collapsed as a result of internal fire and external debris. NO plane hit this building. This is the only case of a steel frame building collapsing through fire in the world. The fire on this building was small & localized therefore what is the cause?"
Paul W. Mason, structural engineer, of Melbourne, Australia, argues:
"In my view, the chances of the three buildings collapsing symmetrically into their own footprint, at freefall speed, by any other means than by controlled demolition, are so remote that there is no other plausible explanation!"
David Scott, Structural Engineer, of Scotland, argues:
"Near-freefall collapse violates laws of physics. Fire induced collapse is not consistent with observed collapse mode . . . ."
Nathan Lomba, Structural Engineer, of Eureka, California, states
"I began having doubts about, so called, official explanations for the collapse of the WTC towers soon after the explanations surfaced. The gnawing question that lingers in my mind is: How did the structures collapse in near symmetrical fashion when the apparent precipitating causes were asymmetrical loading? The collapses defies common logic from an elementary structural engineering perspective. “If” you accept the argument that fire protection covering was damaged to such an extent that structural members in the vicinity of the aircraft impacts were exposed to abnormally high temperatures, and “if” you accept the argument that the temperatures were high enough to weaken the structural framing, that still does not explain the relatively concentric nature of the failures.Neither of the official precipitating sources for the collapses, namely the burning aircraft, were centered within the floor plan of either tower; both aircraft were off-center when they finally came to rest within the respective buildings. This means that, given the foregoing assumptions, heating and weakening of the structural framing would have been constrained to the immediate vicinity of the burning aircraft. Heat transmission (diffusion) through the steel members would have been irregular owing to differing sizes of the individual members; and, the temperature in the members would have dropped off precipitously the further away the steel was from the flames—just as the handle on a frying pan doesn't get hot at the same rate as the pan on the burner of the stove. These factors would have resulted in the structural framing furthest from the flames remaining intact and possessing its full structural integrity, i.e., strength and stiffness.Structural steel is highly ductile, when subjected to compression and bending it buckles and bends long before reaching its tensile or shear capacity. Under the given assumptions, “if” the structure in the vicinity of either burning aircraft started to weaken, the superstructure above would begin to lean in the direction of the burning side. The opposite, intact, side of the building would resist toppling until the ultimate capacity of the structure was reached, at which point, a weak-link failure would undoubtedly occur. Nevertheless, the ultimate failure mode would have been a toppling of the upper floors to one side—much like the topping of a tall redwood tree—not a concentric, vertical collapse.For this reason alone, I rejected the official explanation for the collapse of the WTC towers out of hand. Subsequent evidence supporting controlled, explosive demolition of the two buildings are more in keeping with the observed collapse modalities and only serve to validate my initial misgivings as to the causes for the structural failures."
Edward E. Knesl, civil and structural engineer, of Phoenix, Arizona, writes:
"We design and analyze buildings for the overturning stability to resist the lateral loads with the combination of the gravity loads. Any tall structure failure mode would be a fall over to its side. It is impossible that heavy steel columns could collapse at the fraction of the second within each story and subsequently at each floor below.We do not know the phenomenon of the high rise building to disintegrate internally faster than the free fall of the debris coming down from the top.The engineering science and the law of physics simply doesn't know such possibility. Only very sophisticated controlled demolition can achieve such result, eliminating the natural dampening effect of the structural framing huge mass that should normally stop the partial collapse. The pancake theory is a fallacy, telling us that more and more energy would be generated to accelerate the collapse. Where would such energy would be coming from ?"
Why did the citizens' 9-11 petition ended up in FILE 13?
From: "Spitzer's Real Scandal"http://www.nymegaphone.com/node/24... New York real estate baron Larry Silverstein became primary lease-holder on the World Trade Center a mere six weeks before 9/11. It had never changed hands before. For a down payment, Silverstein put up only $14 million of his own money, and his friends at the powerful investment bank Blackstone Group kicked in another $111 million. After 9/11, Silverstein demanded a whopping $7 billion insurance payout, in the form of two $3.5 billion payments. He argued the two different plane crashes were two separate "occurrences" of two separate attacks.The Megaphone has now learned that as attorney general, Spitzer got involved behind the scenes, and in the courts, filing a amicus curiae ("friend of the court") brief on Silverstein’s behalf on Jan. 15, 2003. For years, this brief languished in the files of the public records room on the 17th floor of the Second Circuit Court in Manhattan, until it was discovered and brought to The New York Megaphone by NYC attorney and author Carl Person. The court ended up agreeing with Spitzer and Silverstein, over-turning the decision of a lower court. Spitzer helped mid-wife a fat compromise and an eventual $4.5 billion payout for Silverstein. The Megaphone’s multiple requests for comment from Governor Spitzer were ignored.Attorney Carl Person told The Megaphone, "I was surprised to see that Spitzer had used his position as attorney general to support one private litigant over another. Normally, this is not done…Silverstein could well have been someone who destroyed evidence concerning the 9/11 events by apparently ordering or consenting to the tearing (pulling) down of 7 WTC and the removal of the debris from his multiple ground leased premises thereafter."Silverstein’s World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11 without being hit by an airplane. Thirty seven eyewitnesses working on the ground as firefighters, EMTs, and reporters, recalled being warned in advance the tower was coming down. The official story however, claims a fire ignited a fuel tank in the building, hastening its sudden collapse.WTC 7 was the NY headquarters of CIA and the SEC office investigating Enron. 9/11 skeptics believe the building was taken down by controlled demolition. Larry Silverstein himself said in a 2002 episode of PBS’s Frontline that on 9/11 he recalled remarking, "Maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it…they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse." Silverstein later claimed that by "pull," he meant removing firefighters, not pulling the building down. However, all firefighters had been "pulled" from the building three hours earlier.The Kroll ConnectionThis past August, another scandal radiated from the Spitzer circle. This time it was Nixon’s arch-strategist Roger Stone leaving a threatening voice mail for Spitzer’s dad, Bernard. Stone allegedly claimed he would subpoena the elder Spitzer for the $5 million in illegal loans Spitzer senior made to his son during his 1998 Attorney General campaign. Stone denied he had made the call. To prove he did, the Spitzer family hired Kroll Associates to trace the call. Why Kroll? Spitzer has a long relationship with this powerful, cryptic security company.Kroll’s CEO on 9/11 was one of Spitzer’s old mentors from the Manhattan DA’s office, Michael Cherkasky. Cherkasky investigated bank BCCI (which had links to both Islamic terror and the CIA), and the mysterious 1993 World Trade Center (WTC) bombing. Cherkasky’s 2002 book Forewarned: Why the Government is Failing to Protect Us, and What We Must Do to Protect Ourselves is a confused mix of fear-mongering and insider’s analysis. He sheepishly admits that the CIA was in part culpable for the 1993 WTC bombing, since they helped pull known terrorist "Blind Sheikh" Abdel bin-Rahman into the country. Cherkasky admits the FBI had a mole inside Rahman’s 1993 WTC bombing cell, and lays blame for the bombing on the FBI.After observing the 1993 WTC bombing as an operation penetrated by CIA and FBI, Cherkasky he became head of Kroll, the "the CIA of Wall Street." Kroll took on the management of WTC after the 1993 bombing. Blackstone Group, the same financiers who backed the Larry Silverstein, have also been involved with Kroll, owning big chunks of Kroll stock on occasion, according to SEC reports.Cherkasky has donated $14,500 to Eliot Spitzer's political campaigns.
"On the morning of September 11th, I was in my office. I was just getting the work handed out to all the employees. ... [Editor's note: At this point, Mr. [Anthony] Saltalamacchia was in sub-basement B1 of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane's impact point at floors 93 to 98.] We heard a massive explosion that was in the World Trade Center about 8:46 a.m. in the morning. The explosion came from -- I believe at first we believed that it came from the Mechanical Room. [Editor's note: The Mechanical Room was below them in a lower sub-basement .]Then we heard a series of other explosions that sounded up on the above levels of the building. We then realized that there was something wrong and there was a major problem. And about, I'd say, 14 to 15 people came running and screaming into our office. ... Then right after that the floor started shaking. The tile from above, which was above us, started coming down, falling on us. And we knew that there was something seriously wrong happening. A man came into the office. He was a black man, very shaky, like in shock. He had multiple wounds. His arms were bleeding. Skin was peeling off. You could see basically his flesh. It was a very tough thing to see. ... [Editor's note: Mr. Saltalamacchia is referring to Felipe David.] And as we're standing there, more explosions were happening. A lot of screaming confusion. ... It was very smoky, very cloudy. It just looked very serious. We knew we had to get out of the building. ... The amount of explosions I've heard from 8:46 until the time we got out was so many, at least ten. It was just like multiple explosions to where I felt like there were different grenades. That's what it sounded like, it was different grenades being set off in the building. It was like -- There was one major explosion, and then there was different explosions throughout that period of time until we got out. Do I believe six years after 9/11? I don't know the truth. I don't believe a word that they say. I just don't believe Everything they say is a cover up. ... No, definitely don't leave it alone. I think that we should get documents to know the truth of what was really going on that we didn't know that we should know now." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzpaZE5XSfg&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ewilliam911%2Ecom%2F
"At 8:30 he says he was headed for level B-4 in Tower One [North Tower], four stories below ground. "... As I'm walking by the main freight car of the building, in the corridor, that's when I got blown. I mean the impact of the explosion, from whatever happened, it threw me to the floor. And that's when everything started happening. It knocked me right to the floor. You didn't know what it was. Of course, you're assuming something fell over on the loading dock, something very heavy, something very big. You don't know what happened. And all of a sudden you just felt the floor moving. ... [Editor's note: At this point, Mr. Morelli was in the sub-basement of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane's point of impact at floors 93 to 98.]I was racing -- I was going towards the bathroom. All of a sudden. I opened the door. I didn't know it was a bathroom And all of a sudden a big impact happened again. And all the ceiling tiles were falling down. The light fixtures were falling, swinging out of the ceiling. And I come running out the door and everything, the walls were down. And I now started running towards the parking lots." Nearly 100 floors below where the first plane hit Phil felt the devastating impact. ... "As I ran to the parking lots, you know, I mean, everybody screaming ... There was a lot of smoke down there. ... You gotta go clear across the whole -- from One to Two World Trade Center. That's the way you gotta run. And then all of a sudden it happened all over again. Building Two got hit. I don't know that. I just know something else hit us to the floor. Right in the basement you felt it. The walls were caving in. Everything that was going on. I know of people that got killed in the basement. I know of people that got broken legs in the basement. People got reconstructive surgery because the walls hit them in the face." http://real.ny1.com:8080/ramgen/real/RMmorelli00028467_020908_194213hi.rm
ABC 9/12/01: Peter Jennings interviewed Marlene Cruz the day after 9/11. Ms. Cruz, a WTC carpenter, was injured in the basement of WTC North Tower on 9/11. She was the first casualty from the WTC to arrive at Bellevue Hospital. Peter Jennings: So tell me how you're feeling. How did you get there? What happened to you? Marlene Cruz: I work for the Trade Center. I'm one of the carpenters. And I was gonna go do a job. And I got on the elevator, the freight elevator. And I heard the first explosion. And the elevator blew up. The doors blew up. And it dropped. I was lucky that the elevator got caught between two floors. Peter Jennings: Which floors? Marlene Cruz: The B Levels. The basement levels. ... [Editor's note: At this point, Ms. Cruz was in the basement of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane's point of impact at floors 93 to 98.] After the first explosion I was laying on the floor about 40 minutes. Peter Jennings: And how well do you know that subterranean part of the World Trade Center? Marlene Cruz: Well, I worked for the building for 15 years. I think I know it from the back of my hand. Really I didn't expect this bombing to occur after the first one, since I was in the first one, also. But when I heard that explosion that's the first thing I thought was; here we go again, another bomb. http://youtube.com/watch?v=TSGZYP--wz0
Mike Pecoraro and a co-worker were working in the sub-basement of the North Tower when the first airplane hit. "They had been told to stay where they were and "sit tight" until the Assistant Chief got back to them. By this time, however, the room they were working in began to fill with a white smoke. "We smelled kerosene," Mike recalled, "I was thinking maybe a car fire was upstairs", referring to the parking garage located below grade in the tower but above the deep space where they were working. [Editor's note: At this point, Mr. Pecoraro was in the sub-basement of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane's impact point at floors 93 to 98.] The two decided to ascend the stairs to the C level, to a small machine shop where Vito Deleo and David Williams were supposed to be working. When the two arrived at the C level, they found the machine shop gone. "There was nothing there but rubble, " Mike said. "We're talking about a 50 ton hydraulic press? gone!" The two began yelling for their co-workers, but there was no answer. They saw a perfect line of smoke streaming through the air. "You could stand here," he said, "and two inches over you couldn't breathe. We couldn't see through the smoke so we started screaming." But there was still no answer. The two made their way to the parking garage, but found that it, too, was gone. "There were no walls, there was rubble on the floor, and you can't see anything" he said. [Editor's note: At this point, Mr. Pecoraro was in the basement of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane's point of impact at floors 93 to 98.] They decided to ascend two more levels to the building's lobby. As they ascended to the B Level, one floor above, they were astonished to see a steel and concrete fire door that weighed about 300 pounds, wrinkled up "like a piece of aluminum foil" and lying on the floor. "They got us again," Mike told his co-worker, referring to the terrorist attack at the center in 1993. Having been through that bombing, Mike recalled seeing similar things happen to the building's structure. He was convinced a bomb had gone off in the building. Mike walked through the open doorway and found two people lying on the floor. One was a female Carpenter and the other an Elevator Operator. They were both badly burned and injured." http://www.chiefengineer.org/article.cfm?seqnum1=1029

Rebuttal of The 9/11 Commission Report.]
A simple formula, familiar to high school students, can be used to refute the official account of American Airlines Flight 77 -- alleged to have struck the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
Force = Mass X Velocity Squared / Radius
This formula approximates the force that would be exerted on an aircraft when it transitions from its downward path to level flight.
First we determine the mass of the aircraft.
Flight 77, a Boeing 757, had taken off from Washington Dulles International airport, and was bound for Los Angeles. Assuming its fuel tanks were full, and ignoring the weight of the 64 passengers, and cargo (which should be available if one wants to include them), the weight of the plane would be about 255,000 pounds (Boeing Technical Specifications).
For our calculation we'll assume that weight and mass are equal, i.e. 255,000 pounds.
For velocity we turn to the official account that Flight 77 struck the Pentagon at "530 miles per hour" (The 9/11 Commission Report, p10).
For our calculation we'll assume that speed and velocity are equal, i.e. 530 mph.
To calculate the radius, we could begin with a statement in The 9/11 Commission Report (p9): Flight 77 was "5 miles west-southwest of the Pentagon" when it "began a 330-degree turn. At the end of turn, it was descending through 2,200 feet".
Next we need to calculate the maximum radius (the most conservative case) of the arc that would allow the aircraft to transition from its downward path to level flight (while clearing obstacles in its path), and strike the Pentagon at the point described in official reports.
We chose instead to use the radius calculated by Pilots for 9/11 Truth.
Pilots for 9/11 Truth base their calculation on the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) data obtained pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the National Transportation Safety Board, and carefully constructed topography of the area below the flight path.
Leaving aside the discrepancies between the official account of Flight 77, and the Flight Data Recorder (which NTSB refuses to answer), Pilots for 9/11 Truth calculated a radius equal to about 579 feet.
From this they calculated the force on the Boeing 757 at 34 Gs, i.e. 34 times the force due to gravity.
There has been some criticism of the calculations performed by Pilots for 9/11 Truth, and they have answered their critics.
With mass, velocity, and radius equal to 255,000 lbs, 530 mph, and 579 feet respectively, the preceding formula yields force equal to 8,276,850 lbs, i.e. the Boeing 757 would act as if it had increased its weight by 8,276,850 lbs, or more than 32 times its normal weight.
With a virtual weight of about 8.5 million pounds, Flight 77 could not have levelled off before striking the Pentagon. It would have crashed before it reached the Pentagon.
This single fact is sufficient to refute the official account of "Flight 77."
Neither Hani Hanjour -- the alleged pilot trainee "noted for incompetence", nor the Boeing 757, would have been in any condition to fly with "the top of the fuselage of the aircraft no more than 20 ft above the ground" (Pentagon Building Performance Report, p14).
Pilots for 9/11 Truth did another calculation by lowering the height of "Flight 77" below that shown by the FDR. They lowered it to to the top of the Virginia Department of Transportation communications antenna that sits below the alleged flight path.
With this very conservative case, they calculated the force on the Boeing 757 at 11.2 Gs. "11.2 Gs was never recorded in the FDR. 11.2 Gs would rip the aircraft apart" they state.
If you disagree, figure out the mass, velocity, and radius, and plug them into the formula to calculate the force. If you have a better formula, use it. Could a Boeing 757 survive the calculated force?
What hard evidence has the government released to support its position? If you have that evidence, we'd like to see it.
Scientific, and other evidence, reinforce the conclusion: Flight 77 did not strike the Pentagon.
