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.

“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.”

FAIA definition: Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) is a post-nominal title designating an individual who has been named a fellow of the American Institute of Architects. Fellowship is bestowed by the American Institute of Architects on AIA-member architects who have made outstanding contributions to the profession through design excellence, contributions in the field of architectural education, or contributions to the advancement of the profession.

Fellowships are awarded according to the following categories of nomination:

To promote the aesthetic, scientific, and practical efficiency of the profession;To advance the science and art of planning and building by advancing the standards of architecture education, training, and practice;To coordinate the building industry and the profession of architecture;To ensure the advancement of the living standards of people through their improved environment;To make the profession of ever-increasing service to society.

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.

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.

“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.

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.
