The 2,700 members of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Continue Their valuable work into the New Year 2017!
Two days ago, Europhysics News released its first issue since the publication of “15 years later: On the physics of high-rise building collapses,” which has now been viewed nearly 350,000 times since its release — and which even caused the magazine’s server to break down at one point.
Lo and behold, on page 43 is a startling and extraordinary letter to the editor by a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Peter Michael Ketcham, who worked at NIST from 1997 until 2011.

Dr. Leroy Hulsey, chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), is now 18 months into his two-year computer modeling study on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7).
Dr. Hulsey first announced his preliminary findings at the Justice In Focus conference in New York City on September 10 and 11 — where he stated categorically that there was “zero” probability that WTC 7 collapsed due to the fires it experienced on 9/11.
Since then, he has given two more presentations. The first was on September 29 to the UAF student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The second was on October 19 to the Fairbanks Branch of the ASCE (where Dr. Hulsey previously served as president). We enthusiastically invite you to watch these presentations and the Q&As that follow, which provide a stimulating glimpse into how the engineering community may respond to Dr. Hulsey’s groundbreaking research when his findings are released next year.
As Dr. Hulsey explains in the presentations, he and his team will exhaustively examine other conceivable scenarios that may have led to collapse over the final six months of the study. They will also study the building’s response to losing individual columns and will attempt to simulate the kinds of failures that would be required to bring the building down in the manner observed on 9/11. After their final report has been published, Dr. Hulsey will begin submitting his findings to leading engineering journals and will attend conferences around the country.

A recently leaked 2014 email from Hillary Clinton acknowledges, citing Western intelligence sources, that the U.S.-backed regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have supported ISIS.
“We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” the document states.
This adds to a growing body of evidence that theocratic Gulf monarchies have helped fuel the surge of extremist groups throughout the Middle East.
Another newly released email, from January 2016, includes an excerpt from a private October 2013 speech in which Clinton acknowledged that “the Saudis have exported more extreme ideology than any other place on earth over the course of the last 30 years.”
In that same speech, Clinton noted that she wanted to pursue “a more robust, covert action trying to vet, identify, train and arm cadres of rebels” in Syria, that would have fought both the government of President Bashar al-Assad and “the Al-Qaeda-related jihadist groups that have, unfortunately, been attracted to Syria.”
She added however, “That’s been complicated by the fact that the Saudis and others are shipping large amounts of weapons — and pretty indiscriminately — not at all targeted toward the people that we think would be the more moderate, least likely, to cause problems in the future.”
In a June 2013 speech to Goldman Sachs, an excerpt of which is also included in that January 2016 message, Clinton emphasized that “the Saudis in particular are not necessarily the stablest regimes that you can find on the planet.”
These emails are part of a trove released this week by transparency organization WikiLeaks. The group, which was founded by detained whistleblower Julian Assange, says it obtained thousands of emails to and from John Podesta, a close Clinton ally and the chair of her presidential campaign.
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.
President Barack Obama has vetoed the legislation that would allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The bill passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate and was met with widespread public support.
Known as “Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act” or JASTA, the bill creates an exemption to the doctrine of sovereign immunity established by a 1976 law, thus allowing US citizens to sue foreign countries for terrorism that kills Americans on US soil.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein on Friday called for a new inquiry into the 9/11 terror attacks, saying that the commission that conducted the initial investigation was stonewalled by the Bush administration.
“Led by the families of those who died on 9/11, the American people wanted — and deserved — a comprehensive and independent inquiry into the attacks,” Stein said in a statement, according to MSNBC.

The pain doesn’t go away” for 9/11 survivor Rick DeSantis, who spoke to RT on the eve of the tragedy’s 15th anniversary, calling for a full investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers.
DeSantis vividly recalls the “flames and the ball of fire” from that fateful September day 15 years ago, which still gives him nightmares even today.
“I think I only survived by the grace of God. When Tower One was hit by a plane, I proceeded to Tower Two to go inside. When I got to the doors of Tower Two, I heard the second plane… I turned around slowly… It seemed as though it was slow motion,” he told RT.
Almost 3,000 people lost their lives on September 11, 2001, as a result of a series of terrorist attacks in the US, with around 2,600 dying after two passenger planes slammed into the World Trade Center buildings in New York.
DeSantis witnessed the horrors first hand and helped to lead some of those caught up in the terrorist attacks to safety.
“I saw many, many things that day, and I saw the reactions that human beings take in situations like that. There are those that freeze and can’t move… and then there are those who go on autopilot like the firemen, who go straight into danger,” he said.
The 9/11 survivor, who is campaigning for greater healthcare for those affected by the disaster, also wants an independent inquiry to look into what actually happen on September 11 in more detail.
“The suffering has not stopped, not mentally or physically, and it is not going to stop. It has been 15 years. The pain does not go away,” he told RT.
“It is outrageous what we have gone through… the wars… Since 9/11, 57,000 factories have been closed in this country; $5 trillion have been spent and lost because of this, and we have had one illegal war after another. The questions, even the simplest of questions, have never been answered,” he said.
Alarmingly, DeSantis alleges that the authorities have tried to cover-up certain aspects of the terrorist attacks.
“How do buildings with 250,000 tons of structural high-grade steel, four inches thick, collapse at the speed of gravity and accelerating in its speed of collapse as it came down. There is only one way that can happen and that is a controlled demolition. I lived it, I was there and I heard the explosions, but it seems every time that you share this, it gets edited out.”
He believes the actual death toll was a lot higher than the official tally of 2,996 given by the authorities. He also mentioned that the fire at the site of the Twin Towers burned until March 2002, while two weeks after the accident, rescue services actually stopped digging “because they were hitting pockets of molten lava.”

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!
