Thanks again to 911 truth artist and activist Roger Morris for conducting this excellent interview with Richard Gage, AIA which aired on Access Radio Taranaki in September. Roger and Richard discuss the scientific evidence behind the collapses of the World Trade Centre buildings including Building 7 on 9/11 and why the official NIST building reports are flawed. They also talk about the 911 Justice in Focus conference at the Cooper Union Building, New York, September 10-11 2016 and the plans to bring this evidence into the court system.
That message is to take a look at the very evidence that’s been sitting on their website for the past 11 years: the FDNY oral histories that the newspaper sued the City of New York to obtain — which include a staggering 118 eyewitness accounts of explosions.
A One-Two Punch
This provocative billboard is just the first step. As soon as it’s up, our plan is to mail a photo of it, plus excerpts from all 118 oral histories, using our brand new article template, to hundreds of recipients including:
500 New York Times editors and reporters;
The FDNY’s 200 firehouses;
New York City’s 51 council members;
And — while we’re at it — the board members of the New York ASCE chapter and the Structural Engineers Association of New York.
And let’s not forget, the billboard will be seen by a whopping 100,000 passersby each day throughout September!
A 2-Day Symposium | Sept. 10-11, 2016 | Cooper Union New York City
Fifteen years after the events of 9/11, wars and cultural conflicts caused by the U.S. response and questionable alliances continue to create global tensions. Furthermore, questions of how the attacks took place continue to surface. For these reasons, a historic event highlighting the blatant discrepancies of the official narrative will be held to critique science-based evidence of the most consequential event of our time. A stellar lineup of credentialed experts will also review new evidence of a cover up such as is revealed in the declassification of the 28 pages, and raise the bar – literally, with an unprecedented level of legal analysis. As you’ll see, this event has an international component, since 9/11 was such a world-changing event. Full details and tickets are at www.911justiceinfocus.org.
The Day 1 Program will feature:
• Keynote address by renowned public interest attorney, Daniel Sheehan, who litigated the Pentagon Papers case, the Karen Silkwood case, Iran/Contra scandal, and Three Mile Island

Demolition of Truth: Psychologists Examine 9/11
September 11, 2001 marked one of the most tragic days in American history. Fifteen years later, the events of that day continue to have a visceral and even traumatic impact on many Americans. Additionally, millions of Americans and citizens around the world question the official account of that day.
DEMOLITION OF TRUTH presents testimony from highly-credentialed scientists, engineers, and military experts, including Dr. Robert Bowman, Dr. Lynn Margulis, Dr. Niels Harrit, and many more. This expert testimony is interwoven with analyses by social scientists who examine the psychological impact of 9/11 and the phenomena that have kept us blinded to truths too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves.
The film concludes with steps we can take, individually and collectively, toward healing. An epilogue by actor Ed Asner summarizes these analyses, emphasizing the role played by mainstream media that, lamentably, parrot their government sources rather than question them.

SUPERIORS DEEM BRIAN MAXWELL’S APPEARANCE IN FILM CONTROVERSIAL
“Are you an expendable firefighter? At the moment, it would appear so.” — Brian Maxwell
by Michael DeFilippo
From oil rigger to fireman to 9/11 activist — whatever he undertakes, Brian Maxwell carries with him his high ideals.
The Scotsman joined the Edinburgh Fire and Rescue Service in late 2000, back when it was called the Lothians and Borders Fire and Rescue Service. After having spent ten rigorous years as a fire and gas detection technician on oil rigs, Maxwell found his new service-oriented vocation rewarding. He embraced the camaraderie in the fire station, which he likened to a family unit.
Less than a year into his firefighting job, Maxwell witnessed the attacks of September 11, 2001. Like the rest of the world, he was stunned. And like many onlookers, both live at the scene in downtown Manhattan and remotely via television, he wondered why the Twin Towers collapsed. But when a satisfactory explanation never presented itself, he accepted the version put forth by the United States government and the mainstream media.
It wasn’t until 2010 that Maxwell watched the now-famous 9/11 documentary, Loose Change, by Dylan Avery. When it ended, Maxwell remembers being “in shock.” That day “changed my life,” he declares. From then on, Maxwell openly questioned the official story.
A few years later, Maxwell learned of Tony Rooke, a filmmaker who was seeking funding to produce a documentary about 9/11, and he made a donation. Upon finding out that Maxwell was a fireman, Rooke asked him to make an appearance in the film. Maxwell agreed.
The main focus of Incontrovertible is World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7), which collapsed — purportedly from fires — late in the afternoon of 9/11. Once the film was released, Maxwell gave copies of the DVD to friends, firefighters in his unit, policemen in the street, and military personnel. He was hopeful that once they realized the facts about WTC 7, they would be as shocked and incensed as he was at the cover-up. “I thought that mass action would follow! But exactly the opposite occurred: indifference, apathy, silence,” Maxwell recalls.

“This open letter is being sent to you to request that you correct your four papers on the collapse of the WTC Towers, which were published by the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.” — Tony Szamboti
On June 19, 2016, Tony Szamboti, a mechanical engineer who has studied the World Trade Center collapses intensively for the past ten years, sent an open letter to Northwestern civil engineering Professor Zdeněk Bažant. Dr. Bažant is the author of four articles in the Journal of Engineering Mechanics that purport to explain why the lower sections of the WTC Twin Towers provided no discernible resistance to the falling upper sections.
German TV Show ‘Galileo’ Airs Special on AE911Truth to Audience of Two Million Viewers
On Monday, May 23, one of Germany’s most popular television shows, “Galileo,” aired a 15-minute segment about the ongoing efforts of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine.
“Galileo” reaches an audience of some two million in Germany each day and is syndicated across Europe.
At the Annual Business Meeting of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) held in Philadelphia on May 21, 2016, representatives of the AIA’s local chapters, state organizations, and national governing bodies voted on whether the AIA should officially support a new WTC 7 investigation.
Resolution 16-3, which was sponsored by 97 AIA members affiliated with AE911Truth, garnered 11% of the delegates’ votes, losing 529 to 4,176. The 11% tally represents nearly a threefold increase over the 4% won last year.
Dan Barnum, a fellow of the AIA and an AE911Truth board member, introduced the resolution with Bob McIlvaine, a 9/11 family member and Philadelphia native, standing by his side.
Two opponents of the resolution and Richard Gage then spoke. After that point, another opponent called the question and the room voted in favor — leaving three supporters, who had been standing at their microphones from the beginning, without a chance to speak. Dan Barnum ended with a powerful closing speech (watch it here) before the vote took place.
Double-Digit Support Highlights Changing Attitudes
For those of us who were present both last year and this year, the tone of the debate was strikingly different. We felt a much higher degree of receptiveness, as well as a reluctance by opponents of the resolution to enthusiastically champion the official account.
Whereas last year the AIA board issued a lengthy position expressing wholehearted endorsement of the 9/11 Commission, FEMA/ASCE, and NIST reports, the board’s position this year was short and tepid. It read as follows:
“The Board has concluded that this matter has been investigated thoroughly by competent authorities with reasonable conclusions, and does not warrant further investigation. It therefore does not support this resolution.”
Only one opponent — the first to take the floor — echoed the board’s meek endorsement of the official reports. The second person to speak in opposition delivered nothing but vitriol, and the third opponent called the question.
Meanwhile, throughout the three-day convention, we witnessed a continuous outpouring of support at our booth. Many delegates stopped by to register their intention to vote “yes” and to sign the petition or to ask questions if they were undecided.
Dan Barnum, FAIA, and the WTC 7 Resolution Vote at the 2016 AIA Business Meeting
“I’m a veteran of the Vietnam War. The U.S. involvement in Vietnam started after the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which was a lie. That war led to 55,000 or 56,000 Americans being killed. Our government sent 56,000 people to their death. It was based on a lie. We are now in the midst of a couple of wars based on a lie. How long are we going to put up with stuff based on lies? How long do we want to go on living based on lies? It’s time to seek truth.”

In 2014, fewer than 3,200 of the more than 80,000 AIA members are Fellows. Dan Barnum is one of those few “outstanding contributions to the profession,” as dictated by the AIA.
WTC Security firm Held its Meetings in Saudi Offices
by Kevin Ryan
There continues to be some limited interest in the many links between Saudi Arabia and the crimes of 9/11. Although those links often point back to powerful people in the U.S., the mainstream media tends to focus the story on Saudi Arabia alone. That seems to be due to the fact that control of natural resources in the Middle East is what really drives terrorism. Nonetheless, it’s important to continue revealing Saudi connections to 9/11 because they can help us understand what really happened.
One very interesting link is that Stratesec, the security company for the World Trade Center and other 9/11-impacted facilities, held its annual meetings in offices leased by Saudi Arabia. That fact highlights the glaring lack of investigation into the men who ran Stratesec.
