ENGINEERS POINT TO EVIDENCE OF SCIENTIFIC FRAUD, CALL FOR INDEPENDENT 9/11 INVESTIGATION

AE911Truth

A new 9/11 documentary featuring dozens of experts in architecture, engineering, and other fields has been released and is being introduced in 30 cities on a tour of the US by the film’s director/producer, Richard Gage, AIA who also founded and directs the nonprofit organization AE911Truth, based in Berkeley, California.

Confidently contradicting official US government explanations, these experts argue that the World Trade Center Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 (WTC 7) were not brought down on September 11, 2001, by the fires ignited by the jetliner impacts, but rather by explosive controlled demolition. The 43 architects, engineers, physicists, chemists and others interviewed in the film represent more than 14,000 concerned citizens and 1,700 architects and engineers from around the world who have signed a petition demanding a new, independent investigation. The film details scientific forensic evidence that the group claims was omitted or misrepresented by the official reports. Official reports blame the unprecedented destruction of all three modern skyscrapers on fires and on the removal of insulation by the jetliner impacts. No jetliner crashed into WTC 7.

The 95-minute documentary features cutting-edge forensic evidence from forty-three technical experts, who expose the fraudulence of the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) reports about the destruction of all three WTC high-rises. These include the third-worst structural failure in modern history: the symmetrical free-fall destruction of 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on the afternoon of 9/11/01.

The startling conclusions brought forth by these experts have profound implications.

Gage declares, “The official story about the attacks of September 11, 2001, falls apart when you look squarely at the facts, omitted in the official reports, and apply fundamental scientific principles to interpret them. After nearly ten years, don’t we all need and deserve to know the truth?”

According to Gage, the film includes interviews with family members of 9/11 victims, who explain why they are still not happy with the answers they’ve been given about what really happened on 9/11: “The family members in this film exhort their fellow citizens to join them in seeing what these experts have to say.”

Several of the film’s experts bear PhD’s, including renowned biologist Lynn Margulis, now deceased. Margulis was a National Medal of Science winner who, along with the other experts in this film, describes unscientific aspects of the US government’s studies of the engineering failures at the World Trade Center. The complete, symmetrical failure of WTC 7 was especially baffling to engineers at the time. According to experts interviewed in the film, the official reports by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and later by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) assume their own conclusions, exclude relevant evidence, and failed to draw reasonable conclusions from the evidence that was examined. Dr. Margulis for instance discusses how the scientific method should have been applied to the evidence of high-temperature incendiaries found in the WTC dust by an international group of scientists.

Regarding WTC Building 7, materials engineer Kathy McGrade says in the film, “The symmetry is the smoking gun.”

Structural engineer Ron Brookman notes: “The destruction of evidence was a criminal act in itself…. It was already being carted away and destroyed when the FEMA investigators got there about a month after September 11.”

The cross-country tour began in San Diego and Beverly Hills May 21 and 22 and ends in San Francisco in July 2012.

A government scientist sacked for exposing the dangers to firefighters from the caustic air at Ground Zero in the days after 9/11 got her job back on Monday.

A federal court ordered that Cate Jenkins, a chemist at the Environmental Protection Agency, be reinstated to her job with back pay.

Her lawyer said the decision, although based on matters of legal process, amounted to vindication for Jenkins’s claims that the EPA had covered up the danger posed to first responders and others in lower Manhattan from the asbestos and highly corrosive dust that rose from the wreckage of the World Trade Center.

It was also a rare victory for whistleblowers, said lawyer Paula Dinerstein. “This doesn’t happen that often.”

Jenkins, who has spent more than 30 years at the EPA, was the first agency official to warn of the dangers of the caustic dust rising from the ruins of the World Trade Center.

The dust, which had dangerously high pH levels, was so corrosive it caused chemical burns to the lungs of firefighters and other rescue teams. Hundreds of workers spent weeks at the scene without protective gear such as respirators.

Subsequent research has shown as many as two-thirds suffered permanent lung damage.

Medical experts now believe much of the health effects could have been prevented if workers were issued proper safety gear.

At the time, however, Christine Todd Whitman, then head of the EPA, claimed there were no readings to indicate a health hazard. Whitman has since said the Bush administration did not want to cause panic

Three years ago, an international team of scientists published a scientific paper that established the presence of thermitic residues in the dust from the World Trade Center (WTC) catastrophe.[1] Although the paper was only the last in a mutually-supportive evidentiary chain, it gave more hard evidence that energetic materials were used to destroy the WTC buildings. This conclusion was in agreement with the other scientific articles that had been previously published, and was also in agreement with eyewitness accounts and photographic evidence.

Joseph Zadroga fought for the bill that bears his son’s name. But will it cover first responders who fell ill with cancer?

The director of Mount Sinai Medical Center’s World Trade Center health program is preparing to publish a study that will show elevated risks of cancer among 9/11 rescue and recovery workers.

A leading authority on the illnesses suffered by Ground Zero responders, Dr. Philip Landrigan says that an analysis of 20,000 medical case histories revealed an incidence of cancer that is 14% higher than expected for a population of the same profile. The most common elevations were in prostate, thyroid and blood cancers.

Landrigan’s findings add to the evidence that the toll from service on or around The Pile, bad as that toll has been, will significantly worsen with time. Research by fire department doctors previously had found a 19% higher cancer rate among FDNY members who’d been at Ground Zero than among those who hadn’t.

It has been well-established that exposure to airborne toxins in the smoke and dust that shrouded Ground Zero produced respiratory, heart and gastrointestinal damage. And medical experts have feared from the start that cancers, which develop slowly, would emerge.

This is Bridgenorth Castle.

Bridgenorth castle was built by a very unsavoury character who took pleasure in gouging children’s eyes out with his fingers and killing people by starvation and torture and other general unpleasantness but I digress.

What, you ask, does Bridgeworth castle as suggested in the title of this post have to do with the collapse of the three WTC buildings on 911?

Let’s start with the size of the building. In order to get a sense of the size of the building (about 70 feet) I would like to draw your attention to the reverse triangle at the top of the wall. It is a rather thin line but that is the double roof which once topped the tower.

The tower was not the keep but a guard house and if you look at the right side of the building you see a narrow line from top to bottom which once held the iron portcullis. The row of holes in the wall from left to right held the beams from the floor and the total floors were approximately three. For more information here is the link to the time team doco on the building. Read more here

Editor’s note: Journalist Chris Mohr, an ardent defender of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory, recently wrote an article for Skeptic Magazine in which he attempted to rebut several key pieces of evidence that prove the WTC skyscrapers were brought down by controlled demolition. Researcher Jeremy R. Hammond exposes the fallacies in Mohr’s arguments in this response published in the Foreign Policy Journal.

Chris Mohr at Skeptic magazine writes that “conspiracists are working hard to publicize their claims of scientific validity to the conjecture that the World Trade Center buildings were destroyed through controlled demolition.” He mentions a debate he had with Richard Gage, the founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, where more than 1,500 professional architects and engineers who question the official explanation for the collapse of the three World Trade Center buildings have signed a petition calling for a new—that is to say, a real—investigation

Janette Mackinlay, 1948 – 2010 was an artist, 9/11 survivor and activist for 9/11 Truth and justice. This video (in 2 parts) shows Janette’s presentation at the University of California Davis on May 1, 2009.

The occasion was Prof. Steven E. Jones’ first public presentation of his research on dust from the World Trade Center. Janette was the first person to give Prof. Jones a sample of dust from the World Trade Center. Prof. Jones, Prof. Niels Harrit and other scientists found red gray chips in the dust, some visible to the naked eye. Scientific examination revealed that these were unexploded pieces of nanothermite, a military grade explosive researched and developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories in Livermore, California.

The question of how nanothermite came to be in the World Trade Center dust has never been answered by the government or the media. On top of all the other eyewitness, physical and photographic evidence already available, this left the official story of 9/11 – the 19 Arabs conspiracy theory – without any credibility.
