Investigating 9/11 and Naming Suspects

When people ask me what more can be done to achieve 9/11 truth and justice, I tell them to spend less time calling for a new investigation and more time investigating. Even without subpoena power, independent investigators can make a lot of progress. To help with that effort, here are three steps for an independent investigation and an objective way to evaluate suspects in the 9/11 crimes.

The first step is to ask specific, well-formulated questions. What do we need to know? We need to know things like how explosives got into the WTC, how the North American air defenses failed, how the U.S. chain of command and communication systems failed, how the alleged hijackers got away with so much, and how the planes were hijacked.

“FREE FALLIN’ starring BUILDING 7” is a riff on the classic Tom Petty song Free Fallin’. Twenty-seven years after the release of this beautiful song, it provides a perfect platform to bring attention to the troubling destruction of World Trade Center Building 7, which came down in free fall late in the afternoon on September 11, 2001. According to the official account of 9/11, Building 7 collapsed due to normal office fires ignited by falling debris from WTC 1 (structural damage and diesel fuel fires did not contribute to the collapse, according to the government). However, scientific and circumstantial evidence strongly contradicts that explanation

The fact that Building 7 instantaneously entered free fall – the acceleration of gravity – for a period of 2.25 seconds over a distance of eight stories is very strong evidence of controlled demolition. Free fall can only be achieved when there is no resistance provided by the structure below. A free-fall drop of eight stories indicates that all 81 columns in Building 7 were simultaneously severed over eight stories. Only explosives can account for this kind of structural failure. Indeed, fires have never caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise, let alone in the manner of a classic controlled demolition.

The infinitely small chance of a fire-induced failure bringing down the entire building – in particular, through the improbable series of structural failures which the government alleges caused the collapse – cannot be reconciled with the strong foreknowledge on the part of local authorities that Building 7 would eventually collapse (which the video highlights prominently). If Building 7 actually collapsed from fire, the authorities’ prediction of Building 7’s collapse would be analogous to confidently and correctly predicting one specific lottery ticket to win the lottery.

The inexplicable foreknowledge on the part of authorities is made all the more apparent by the inability of the engineering community to explain it after the fact. Nine months after the collapse, FEMA would state, “The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time…. [T]he best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence.” More than four years after the collapse, the government’s lead investigator would state, “[T]ruthfully, we don’t really know. We’ve had trouble getting a handle on building No. 7.”

In reality, the warnings of Building 7’s imminent demise must have originated from someone who knew that Building 7 was going to be brought down in a controlled demolition. Beyond that, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which represents over 2,400 architectural and engineering professionals, does not speculate on who brought down Building 7 or why. Instead, we are dedicated to educating the public about the destruction of all three World Trade Center buildings with the expectation that others with the responsibility and authority to conduct a proper investigation will do so.

Jeb Bush was the Republican Party’s favorite presidential nominee but Donald Trump has conducted a controlled demolition of his candidacy over the Bush family’s role in the 9/11 atrocity, an American scholar and political analyst says.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, editor of We Are Not Charlie Hebdo and scholar of Arabic and Islamic studies, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Monday when was asked to comment on Donald Trump’s recent statement about Jeb Bush.

Sunday Express: 911 relative questions unanswered

by Ian Henshall – Reinvestigate 9/11

A mainstream news outlet in the UK has given unprecedented coverage to the 9/11 truth issue.

The Sunday Express interviewed Matt Campbell – who is seeking a new investigation into the death of his brother in the 9/11 attacks – under the headline Brother of Briton murdered during 9/11 attacks calls for inquest to be re-opened.

The report in the Express emphasised the lack of hard evidence produced to support the official account of how suicide hijackers took America by surprise and flew two planes into the World Trade Center and a third into Pentagon.

Some experts argue that the symmetrical collapse at freefall speed of a third building, WTC 7, not hit by a plane, indicates the likelihood of a pre-planned controlled demolition. Others point to government reports indicating the alleged 9/11 hijackers were given cover by Saudi Arabian diplomats in the US and were actively protected from arrest by key officials in the CIA’s top secret Osama Bin Laden unit. Matt Campbell’s complaint is that the authorities refuse to offer hard evidence to support the official story.

Ian Henshall, author of 911 The New Evidence, interviewed in the Independent two weeks ago on 9/11, said today: “this is the most informative article to appear on the 9/11 attacks in the mainstream media in the UK since my book serialisation in the Daily Mail some years ago.

The Express also reports on the new play I.S.I.S running in Camden, London this week. The initials stand for Intelligence, Surveillance, Infiltration and Subversion. The play by Peter Neathey, said by one critic to be cleverly written and well acted, has attracted a positive feature in the respected local paper the Camden New Journal. It postulates a group of 9/11 sceptics who are infiltrated by MI5 as part of the Cameron government’s so-called Protect programme, which targets alleged conspiracy theorists as potential terrorists. The MI5 svengali is played by actor Michael Culver, widely known for his Star Wars role.

It follows the release of the hard hitting film Incontrovertible by Tony Rooke which has become an online hit. It focuses on the collapse of World Trade Centre Building 7 and features Matt’s interviews with a range of experts sceptical of the official story.

“What could cause this range of recovered body parts from nearly complete to essentially ‘vaporized’? Perhaps it was proximity to explosives?” — Matt Campbell

Matt Campbell Seeks Supporters for His Legal Campaign

By 911TruthOutreach and Other Contributors
UK citizen Matt Campbell lost his brother, Geoff, in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
In the ensuing years, Matt has been on a quest to find a route to justice for his brother’s murder. He has helped expose the fact that the official story is incontrovertibly wrong — that hijacked planes and fires could not possibly be the sole reason for the destruction of the Twin Towers.
Specifically, he has educated government officials and the media by introducing them to the evidence supporting the theory of controlled demolitions. This evidence has been outlined by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in its documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out, and in its booklet, Beyond Misinformation: What Science Says About the Destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7. Explosives explain the observed high-speed ejection — outside the footprint of the Twin Towers — of not only structural material, but also the remains of his brother.
Now Matt is pursuing a legal strategy to force a correction to the official story and bring some semblance of justice to his brother.

9/11 as False Flag: Why International Law Must Dare to Care

Amy Baker Benjamin
Auckland University of Technology

January 10, 2016

Emory International Law Review, Forthcoming

Abstract:
At the heart of contemporary international law lies a paradox: The attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001 have justified nearly fifteen years of international war, yet the official international community, embodied principally in the United Nations, has failed to question or even scrutinize the U.S. Government’s account of those attacks. Despite the impressive and serious body of literature that has emerged to suggest that 9/11 was a classic (if unprecedentedly monstrous) false-flag attack, international statesmen, following the lead of scholars, have acted as if there is no controversy whatsoever. This disconnect between the growing (alternative) evidentiary record of state responsibility for the attacks and the focus of international institutions is impossible to sustain if those institutions are to maintain any semblance of viability and meaning.

In a three-step process, this Article seeks to connect the international community to the possible reality of 9/11-as-false-flag. First, it shows that it is highly rational to question the official 9/11 account given the historical record of the first half of the twentieth century, which reveals a pattern of false flag attacks over which the international community openly fretted and tried to exercise jurisdiction. Second, it analyzes the reasons why intellectual elites and the statesmen they influence are behaving irrationally in not inquiring into the possibility of 9/11-as-false-flag, deconstructing a multi-faceted motive into all its unsavory parts. Third, it argues that the means for ceasing this irrational behavior is readily available, as the United Nations need only carry out its core and incontrovertible “jury” function of determining the existence of aggression in order to exercise a long-overdue oversight of the official 9/11 narrative.

Welcome to our first episode, announcing our new media project- NEWSBUD.COM. In this podcast episode broadcaster Peter B. Collins, investigative journalist Pepe Escobar and I discuss the launching of this exciting media project, and talk about what we mean by a solely people funded and backed media platform with resources to effectively counter the current propaganda and agenda ridden mainstream/pseudo-alternative operators. We talk about how people have been made irrelevant and rendered powerless by today’s well-calculated and designed media landscape, and the urgency in creating the only people-funded media platform to bring we the people back into the equation and render the 0.0001% irrelevant.

As Thomas Jefferson put it simply and eloquently, an informed citizenry is at the heart of a dynamic democracy. A core function of media is to act as the public’s independent watchdog- to keep governments, businesses and other agenda-driven organizations in check. Yet, today, our media is owned and ruled by these very same entities- Mega corporations and billionaires-funded organizations. Isn’t this letting the foxes guard the henhouse?

Are you tired of getting your news from sources funded by mega-corporations and billionaire dynasties? If yes, then come and join us in establishing NEWSBUD—100% people-funded: Where media integrity matters. For everyone who has been dreaming of a major independent media platform that’s free from corporate advertisements, partisan agendas, and a dependency on the ultra-rich, that dream is about to be a reality.

*We are asking those of you who support this one-of-a-kind media project to come and join us. Please add yourself, and your voice, to our group list here. They have rendered we the people irrelevant. Together we are going to make them irrelevant!

Viral 9/11 Truth-Debunking Blacksmith Gets It All Wrong

Much hay has been made in recent days about a YouTube video posted by a blacksmith named Trenton Tye, who tries to debunk the theory that the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7 were destroyed by controlled demolition.

Within the first two days of being posted, Tye’s video received five million views and was covered by the Washington Post, the Daily Mirror, and the Huffington Post — the latter with the celebratory headline, “Metal Worker Shuts Down 9/11 Truthers… With His Pinkie.”

In fact, Tye’s attempt to disprove controlled demolition by heating a half-inch piece of steel to 1,800°F and bending it like a “noodle” is way off. He seems to think the controlled demolition argument goes like this, “Fire can’t melt steel, so the buildings couldn’t have collapsed from fire.” He couldn’t be more mistaken.

The only reason that melting steel is discussed at all is because government officials, engineers, first responders, and others observed large amounts of molten metal (requiring temperatures of more than 2,800°F) in the debris of all three buildings.

Tye’s sixth-grade-level demonstration that structural steel loses strength at 1,800°F does nothing to address the presence of molten metal at Ground Zero. If anything, Tye proves that the fires in the World Trade Center could not have generated the molten metal that witnesses saw. What did? The only plausible explanation is thermite, an incendiary that can be used to cut through structural steel.

Putting aside the molten metal, Tye’s demonstration is wholly irrelevant for the simple reason that the fires in the World Trade Center could not have heated the structure anywhere near as high as the 1,800°F to which Tye heated his piece of steel using a furnace.

Jet fuel fires reach temperatures of around 1,500°F only under optimal conditions. In open air conditions like the WTC buildings, they burn at around 600°F. Even according to the government agency that investigated the disaster, there is no evidence that any of the steel was heated to the point where it would lose its strength.

There have been literally hundreds of hotter, larger, longer-lasting fires in steel-frame high-rises over the last century, and never has one caused the total collapse of a building. Tye’s simplistic logic implies that many of these infernos should have led to a total collapse. Of course, none has — and that also goes for the three steel-frame high-rises that were destroyed on 9/11.

That this YouTube video has become an overnight sensation testifies to the alarming lack of journalistic rigor and scientific acumen with which the media has approached the debate surrounding the World Trade Center destruction on 9/11 — and to the rampant misinformation that has followed.

We encourage anyone who thinks there might be some validity to Tye’s confused science experiment to visit AE911Truth.org and to read our most recent publication, Beyond Misinformation: What Science Says About the Destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7, for real expert analysis of the evidence.
