An Attempt to Uncover the Truth About September 11th, 2001 – Source: 911Research.com
We all know the official story of September 11th: four jetliners were hijacked by groups of four and five Arabic men armed with box cutters, who proceeded to fly three of the four jets into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Subsequently the World Trade Center Towers, weakened by the impacts and fires, collapsed into piles of rubble. The FBI had compiled a list of hijackers within three days, and it was so obvious that Osama bin Laden had masterminded the operation from caves in Afghanistan, that there was no need to seriously investigate the crime or produce evidence. The “retaliatory” attack on the Taliban would soon commence.
Is this story true? Its central assumptions have never been tested by an official government body whose members lack obvious conflicts of interest. There are numerous red flags in the official story, which requires a long series of highly improbable coincidences. Questioning that story is an act of responsible citizenship.

The September 11th Targets, and Their Defense
The targets of the September 11th attacks aside from the four jetliners, were some of the most famous and unique buildings in the world:
These were only the focal points of the attack. The real target of the attack appears to have been something much broader and far-reaching than mere buildings, and even the thousands of innocent victims in the buildings and airplanes. Whatever the motives of the perpetrators of the attack, lower Manhattan, a section of the Pentagon, and four jetliners were the immediate physical targets.
The World Trade Center was a collection of seven buildings in lower Manhattan, including the famous Twin Towers, which were once the world’s tallest buildings. By the end of September 11th, 2001, all seven buildings were either leveled or severely damaged and gutted, including Building 7, which was on a separate block.
The Pentagon is the administrative heart of the U.S. military establishment and the largest office building in the world. On September 11th, one of 10 sections was damaged in the attack.
The cities and military installations in the United States are normally defended from airborne attack of any type by NORAD, which monitors all air traffic in North America in real time, and rapidly dispatches interceptors whenever there is a flight emergency. The World Trade Center and the Pentagon would normally be two of the best defended buildings in the world.
The World Trade Center
Background for September 11th
|Twin Towers at sunrise ( source)|
Until September 11th, 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center towered over lower Manhattan, the tallest buildings in the city, and the second tallest in the United States. The Twin Towers were the first to be built and the most famous of a set of six buildings comprising the World Trade Center complex. Building 7, also known as WTC 7, was the only building with a World Trade Center address that was on a different block. It was built more than a decade after the towers. Like the Twin Towers, Building 7 was leveled on September 11th.
The World Trade Center as Anticipated Target
In 2002, National Security Advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice denied that the attack on the World Trade Center was anticipated.
However, numerous reports show that officials did, in fact, consider the scenario of planes being used as guided missiles against signature targets such as the World Trade Center. In 2004, USA Today reported that NORAD ran drills in the two years preceding the attack in which simulated hijacked jetliners were crashed into targets including the World Trade Center. 2 Other reports date back long before the attack. The April 3, 1995 edition of Time Magazine ran a cover story in which Senator Sam Nunn described a scenario in which terrorists crashed a radio-controlled airplane into the U.S. Capitol building. 3
|This illustration is from a FEMA training manual published before the attack.|
The World Trade Center was well-recognized as a target of a terrorist attack ever since the 1993 garage bombing attack. In 1994, an expert from a panel commissioned by the Pentagon wrote in the Futurist magazine:
Another fact belying Dr. Rice’s statement is that on the morning of 9/11/01 the National Reconnaissance Office was running an exercise simulating the crash of a corporate jet into a tower on their campus.
Awareness of the likelihood of the targeting of the Twin Towers was not confined to officialdom. Several events in the popular culture seemed to anticipate the attack.
Events Preceding the Attack
Events that occurred within a year of the attack and should have been the subject of an investigation remain widely unknown to the public. Control of the complex was privatized through a 99-year lease to a consortium headed by Silverstein Properties. Facts relating to the security of the buildings are also suspicious.
Facts about the Famous World Trade Center
The World Trade Center consisted of a cluster of 6 buildings that occupied a single superblock, plus Building 7, which occupied an adjacent block.

The Towers’ History
Origins of the World Trade Center and the World’s Tallest Buildings
The origins of the World Trade Center extend back to 1946, when the New York Legislature created the World Trade Corporation with a view to creating a trade center in Manhattan. The history is recounted in greater detail at Great Buildings Online.
The Port Authority chose as the site for the WTC in 1962 the block bounded by West, Church, Liberty, and Vesey Streets, and selected architect Minoru Yamasaki to design the project. At Yamasaki’s request, Worthington, Skilling, Helle and Jackson was selected as the engineering firm, and Yamasaki worked closely with its engineers John Skilling and Leslie Robertson. The architectural firm Emery Roth & Sons handled production work. 1
The site MASTER PLAN from 1963, though detailed, was modified in some respects prior to implementation. In particular, the final configuration of the low-rise buildings WTC 4, 5, and 6 was different than shown in the MASTER PLAN.
|The Twin Towers in the mid-1970s, before the construction of WTC 3.|
The towers were dedicated on April 4th, 1973. The owners initially had difficulty finding tenants to fill the enormous towers, which had over 8 million square feet of floor space. Most of the North Tower was still unoccupied when a serious fire broke out in February of 1975.
The 110-story Twin Towers, rising 1,368 and 1,362 feet, remained the world’s tallest and largest buildings until they were surpassed by the Sears Tower in 1974.
WTC 7 and WTC 5, the World Trade Center was controlled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) until being leased to private interests six weeks before the 9/11/01 attack. WTC 3, originally the Vista Hotel, was purchased by the PANYNJ in 1980 for $78 million. Then, in 1996 the PANYNJ sold the Vista to Marriott for $141 million. 3

The Towers’ Architecture
The Innovative Design of the World Trade Center Towers
The Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world when they were completed in 1972. The design, created by architect Minoru Yamaski, was innovative in several ways, including its elevator system, and its structural system. These innovations would be widely adopted in later skyscrapers.
A conventional elevator system would have taken up half the space of the lower floors. A novel system employing express and local elevators was developed by Otis Elevators. The express elevators took people to “sky lobbies” on the 44th and 78th floors, where they could board local elevators. (See this schematic.) This system halved the number of elevator shafts that would have been required in a conventional system, and resulted in shorter average transit times for tenants.
A March 2001 article in Elevator World describes contemporary work on the elevator system of the Twin Towers by Ace Elevator as “one of the largest, most sophisticated elevator modernization programs in the industry’s history.” 1
perimeter walls, and a dense bundle of columns forms its core. Tall buildings have to resist primarily two kinds of forces: lateral loading (horizontal force) due mainly to the wind, and gravity loading (downward force) due to the building’s weight. The tube within a tube design uses a specially reinforced perimeter wall to resist all lateral loading and some of the gravity loading, and a heavily reinforced central core to resist the bulk of the gravity loading. The floors and hat truss completed the structure, spanning the ring of space between the perimeter wall and the core, and transmitting lateral forces between those structures.
The tube within a tube architecture was relatively new at the time the Twin Towers were built, but has since been widely employed in the design of new skyscrapers. In fact most of the world’s tallest buildings use it, including:
- The Sears Tower (1450 ft)
- The World Trade Center Towers (1350 ft)
- The Standard Oil of Indiana Building (1125 ft)
- The John Hancock Center (1105 ft)
An 800- x 400-foot foundation box, 65 feet deep and with 3-foot-thick retaining walls — the so-called bathtub — was under more than half the World Trade Center complex, including the Twin Towers and the adjacent hotel. 2 3

The Core Structures
The Structural System of the Twin Towers
Each tower was supported by a structural core extending from its bedrock foundation to its roof. The cores were rectangular pillars with numerous large columns and girders, measuring 87 feet by 133 feet. The core structures housed the elevators, stairs, and other services. The cores had their own flooring systems, which were structurally independent of the floor diaphragms that spanned the space between the cores and the perimeter walls. The core structures, like the perimeter wall structures, were 100 percent steel-framed.
The exact dimensions, arrangement, and number of the core columns remained somewhat mysterious until the publication of a leaked collection of detailed architectural drawings of the North Tower in 2007. Although the drawings show the dimensions and arrangement of core columns, they do not show other engineering details such as the core floor framing. It is clear from photographs, such as the one on the right, that the core columns were abundantly cross-braced.
9/11 Commission Report — denies their very existence, claiming the towers’ cores were “hollow steel shaft[s]:”
|The top illustration indicates what may have been typical dimensions and thickness of the smaller core columns, about half-way up the tower. The outermost rows of core columns were apparently considerably larger, measuring 54 inches wide.|
Some of the core columns apparently had outside dimensions of 36 inches by 16 inches. Others had larger dimensions, measuring 52 inches by 22 inches. 3 The core columns were oriented so that their longer dimensions were perpendicular to the core structures’ longer, 133-foot-wide sides. Construction photographs found at the Skyscraper Museum in New York City indicate that the outermost rows of core columns on the cores’ longer sides were of the larger dimensions. Both the FEMA’s World Trade Center Building Performance Study and the NIST’s Draft Report on the Twin Towers fail to disclose the dimensions of the core columns, and the NIST Report implies that only the four core columns on each core’s corners had larger dimensions.
Like the perimeter columns — and like steel columns in all tall buildings — the thickness of the steel in the core columns tapered from bottom to top. Near the bottoms of the towers the steel was four inches thick, whereas near the tops it may have been as little as 1/4th inch thick. The top figure in the illustration to the right is a cross-section of one of the smaller core columns from about half-way up a tower, where the steel was about two inches thick. The bottom figure shows the base of one of the larger core columns, where the steel was five inches thick. The bases of the columns also had slabs of steel running through their centers, making them almost solid.
Construction photographs show that the core columns were connected to each other at each floor by large square girders and I-beams about two feet deep. The debris photograph below shows what appears to be one of the smaller core columns surrounded by perpendicular I-beams approximately three feet deep. In addition, the tops of core structures were further connected by the sloping beams of the hat truss structures.
|This photograph from Ground Zero is apparently of one of the smaller core columns connected to a set of I-beams.|
|This image from the documentary Up From Zero shows the base of a core column, whose dimensions, minus the four flanges, are apparently 52 by 22 inches, with walls at least 5 inches thick.|
The Perimeter Walls
The Structural System of the Twin Towers
The towers’ perimeter walls comprised dense grids of vertical steel columns and horizontal spandrel plates. These, along with the core structures, supported the towers. In addition to supporting gravity loads, the perimeter walls stiffened the Towers against lateral loads, particularly those due to winds. The fact that these structures were on the exterior of the Towers made them particularly efficient at carrying lateral loads. Richard Roth, speaking on behlf of the architectural firm that designed the Towers, described each of the perimeter walls as essentially “a steel beam 209′ deep.” 1 Regardless, it is clear that the core structures were designed to support several times the weight of each tower by themselves.
As the diagram and photograph illustrate, the perimeter wall structures were assembled from pre-fabricated units consisting of 3 column sections and 3 spandrel plate sections welded together. Adjacent units were bolted together: column sections were bolted to adjacent columns above and below, and spandrel plate sections were mated with adjacent sections on either side with numerous bolts.
There were 59 perimeter columns on each face of the towers, and one column on each corner bevel, making a total of 240 perimeter columns in each tower.
Like the core columns, the thickness of the perimeter columns tapered from the bottom to the top of the towers. The illustrated cross-sections represent columns near the top, and near the mid-section of the towers.
|This diagram shows horizontal sections of the Twin Towers’ perimeter columns. The leftmost figure shows a section of a column, its enveloping insulation, and the aluminum cladding with window frame conections. The left and middle figures show sections of a column near a tower’s tops, where the steel was thinnest. The rightmost figure shows section of a column in the lower part of a tower, where the steel was much thicker.|

The Structural System of the Twin Towers
|This illustration from FEMA’s report shows a section of the flooring system. The main double trusses, of which two are pictured, are perpendicular to the view plane.|
The floors of the Twin Towers completed the structural system whose main elements were the core structures and the perimeter walls. The floor diaphragms were annular structures that spanned the distance between the core structures and the perimeter walls, providing large expanses of uninterrupted floor space. The cores had their own flooring systems, which were structurally independent of the surrounding floor diaphragms.
The floor diaphragms consisted of lightweight concrete slabs poured onto corrugated steel pans, which were supported by trusses. Primary double trusses were interwoven with transverse secondary trusses — a fact ignored by the truss failure theory. The primary trusses were 900 mm deep, and spaced on 2.04 m centers.
The 10 cm thick concrete slabs were apparently a lightweight form of concrete typically used in high-rises. Its density and exact composition remain unknown, but such lightweight concrete is typically 60% as dense as concrete used in roads and sidewalks. The floors were the only major part of these mostly steel buildings that contained concrete.
Some Floors Had More Than Trusses
FEMA’s report imples that the floor diaphragms were supported only by the webbed trusses described here. It gives no indication of other structures that may have helped transfer the substantial lateral forces due to wind loading between the perimeter walls and core structures, and it provides no detail on the flooring system in the towers’ cores, which were apparently supported by heavy steel I-beams. This idea that all the floors were undergirded only by trusses is a prerequisite to the truss-failure theory, which blames a chain-reaction of failures of the trusses for the building collapses. There is evidence, however, that certain floors had solid steel-frame support structures rather than light open trusses, such as the following passage from the Engineering News-Record:
|This illustration from Multi-Storey Buildings in Steel gives a three-dimensional view of a floor section.|
Most variants of the truss-failure theory blame the detachment of the truss ends from the perimeter walls for the pancaking of floors, and eventual total collapse of the buildings. It has been asserted that only one or two bolts connected the truss ends to the perimeter walls. Howerver, according to both of the official government reports, the truss ends rested on steel plates that were both welded and bolted to the top chords of the trusses and attached via bolted damping units to their lower bottom chords.
|This illustration from FEMA’s report shows details of truss-to-column connections.|
The Hat Trusses
The Structural System of the Twin Towers
|This photograph shows the top of the hat truss of one of the towers during its construction.|
The fourth primary structural subsystem in each tower was the hat truss — a lattice of large diagonal I-beams that connected the perimeter walls to the core structure beteen the 107th floor and roof. This structure was also known as the “outrigger truss system.”
The hat truss structure strengthened the core structure, unified the core and perimeter structures, and helped to support the large antenna mounted atop the North Tower. The hat truss, which contained both horizontal and sloping I-beams, connected core columns to each other, and connected the core to the perimeter walls. Most the beams connected core columns to each other, while a set of sixteen horizontal and sloping beams spanned the distance the core and perimeter walls. Eight of these, the outrigger trusses, connected the corners of the core to the perimeter walls, while another eight connected the centers of the core’s periphery to the perimeter walls.
The hat trusses are central to the “probable collapse sequence” described by NIST’s Final Report on the Twin Towers. It blames the hat truss for transferring “column instability” between the core structures and the perimeter walls. In other words, it asserts that reinforcing structures caused the Towers to self-destruct. Its section entitled “Results of Global Analysis” describes the “structural deterioration” of the North Tower as follows:
|This schematic from Chapter 2 of the FEMA Report provides some detail on the geometry of the hat truss.|
After the aircraft impact, gravity loads that were previously carried by severed columns were redistributed to other columns. The north wall lost about 7 percent of its loads after impact. Most of the load was transferred by the hat truss, and the rest was redistributed to the adjacent exterior walls by spandrels. Due to the impact damage and the tilting of the building to the north after impact, the south wall also lost gravity load, and about 7 percent was transferred by the hat truss. As a result, the east and west walls and the core gained the redistributed loads through the hat truss.
Structural steel expands when heated. In the early stages of the fire, structural temperatures in the core rose, and the resulting thermal expansion of the core was greater than the thermal expansion of the (cooler) exterior walls. About 20 min. after the aircraft impact, the difference in the thermal expansion between the core and exterior walls, which was resisted by the hat truss, caused the core column loads to increase. As the fires continued to heat the core areas without insulation, the columns were thermally weakened and shortened and began to transfer their loads to the exterior walls through the hat truss until the south wall started to bow inward. At about 100 min, approximately 20 percent of the core loads were transferred by the hat truss to the exterior walls due to thermal weakening of the core; the north and south walls each gained about 10 percent more loads, and the east and west walls each gained about 25 percent higher loads. Since the hat truss outriggers to the east and west walls were stiffer than the outriggers to the north and south walls, they transferred more loads to the east and west exterior walls.
The inward bowing of the south wall caused failure of exterior column splices and spandrels, and these columns became unstable. The instability spread horizontally across the entire south face. The south wall, now unable to bear its gravity loads, redistributed these loads to the thermally weakened core through the hat truss and to the east and west walls through the spandrels. The building section above the impact zone began tilting to the south as the columns on the east and west walls rapidly became unable to carry the increased loads. This further increased the gravity loads on the core columns. Once the upper building section began to move downwards, the weakened structure in the impact and fire zone was not able to absorb the tremendous energy of the falling building section and global collapse ensued.

The Deep Basement Containing the Twin Towers’ Foundations
|The bathtub contained the footprints of the Twin Towers and Buildings 3 and 6.|
About half of the superblock that the World Trade Center occupied contained a deep basement, the so-called bathtub. It was a skewed rectangle with sides about 980 and 520 feet, and a depth of about seven stories. 1
The bathtub is the 9-block area of the World Trade Center site that is excavated down to bedrock and hard soils and ringed by the slurry wall. The bathtub was created to enable the building of the Twin Towers’ foundations, and was ultimately filled with seven stories of basements housing the parking garage, mall, and building services. Since the ground water level at the World Trade Center site was just a few feet below the surface, while bedrock was about 70 feet below the surface, creating the bathtub required first building a 7-story dam below the water level of the adjacent Hudson River — the slurry wall. Ground excavated to make the bathtub was deposited west of West Street to make the land on which the World Financial Center and Battery Park now stand: 1,000,000 cubic yars moved in 100,000 truck loads filled a 700- by 1400-foot area, creating $90,000,000 worth of land. 2
Four of the World Trade Center buildings — the Towers and Buildings 3 and 6 — rested on foundations entirely within the bathtub.
|This illustration shows a cross-section of the bathtub tall. The diagonal lines represent the post-tensioned tie-backs: cables that resist pressure pushing inward on the bathtub.|
Essentially, the bathtub was built underground and underwater. Construction crews would dig a section of trench three feet wide and down to bedrock level. As the trench was dug, it was filled with a bentonite slurry, which prevented the inflow of river water by filling the trench and sealing the adjacent soil. Once the section of trench was completely excavated, a pre-fabricated steel framework, weighing 22 tons, was lowered into it. Then concrete was poured through a pipe into the bottom of the trench while the lighter bentonite slurry was sucked from the top. The entire wall was built using 152 22-foot-long sections.
Each steel framework contained a set of guides for tiebacks — cables that would pass through the walls and secure them to the ground outside the bathtub. The tiebacks were installed as the material inside of the bathtub was excavated, preventing the pressure of the soil and groundwater outside the bathtub from pushing the walls inward. The sub basement structures, once constructed, provided additional bracing of the walls.
|This photograph shows the bathtub wall after most of the rubble from the 9/11/01 attack was removed. Portions of basement floors are visible in the right-hand side of the photograph.|
Ownership, Control, and Insurance of The World Trade Center
The World Trade Center complex came under the control of a private owner for the first time only in mid-2001, having been built and managed by the Port Authority as a public resource. The complex was leased to a partnership of Silverstein Properties and Westfield America. 1 2 The new controllers acquired a handsome insurance policy for the complex including a clause that would prove extremely valuable: in the event of a terrorist attack, the partnership could collect the insured value of the property, and be released from their obligations under the 99-year lease. 3
In December 2003, the Port Authority agreed to return all of the $125 million in equity that the consortium headed by Silverstein originally invested to buy the lease on the World Trade Center. The Port Authority rejected a request by the Wall Street Journal to review the transaction. 5 A press report from November 2003 about the same transaction noted that it would allow Silverstein to retain development rights. 6
The lease deal didn’t close until July 24th, just 6 weeks before the attack. 7
The insurance money flows involved in the destruction of the original six World Trade Center buildings were far greater. Silverstein Properties, the majority owner of WTC 7, also had the majority interest in the original World Trade Center complex. Silverstein hired Willis Group Holdings Ltd. to obtain enough coverage for the complex. Willis undertook “frenetic” negotiations to acquire insurance from 25 carriers. The agreements were only temporary contracts when control of the WTC changed hands on July 24. 9
After the attack, Silverstein Properties commenced litigation against its insurers, claiming it was entitled to twice the insurance policies’ value because, according to a spokesman for Mr. Silverstein, “the two hijacked airliners that struck the 110-story twin towers Sept. 11 were separate ‘occurrences’ for insurance purposes, entitling him to collect twice on $3.6 billion of policies.” This was reported in the Bloomberg News less than one month after the attack. 10
The ensuing legal battle between the leaseholders and insurers of the World Trade Center was not about how the 9/11/01 attack on the WTC could be considered two attacks, when the WTC was only destroyed once. Rather it seemed to revolve around whether the beneficiaries thought it was one or two “occurrences.” The proceedings before U.S. District Judge John S. Martin involved a number of battles over the insurers’ discovery rights regarding conversations about this issue between insurance beneficiaries and their lawyers. 11 12
In December 2004, a jury ruled in favor of the insurance holders’ double claim. 13

The 1975 Fire
The North Tower Survived A Serious Fire in 1975
Seldom mentioned in the literature about the September 11th attack is the fact that the North Tower experienced a serious fire in 1975, when it was only sparsely occupied. On February 13, 1975, a fire, set by a custodian turned arsonist, started on the 11th floor and spread to limited portions of six other floors, burning for three hours. Several fire suppression systems that were later installed in the towers were not present at the time, including sprinklers, elevator shaft dampers, and electrical system fireproofing. 1
The fire, which broke out just before midnight, did not kill anyone but forced the evacuation of fifty people, consisting mostly of maintenance staff. The captain of Engine Co. 6 described the suppression effort as “like fighting a blow torch.” One hundred thirty-two firefighters fought the fire, which burned primarily on the 11th floor. Sixteen men were treated for smoke inhalation. The New York Times reported that “flames could be seen pouring out of the 11th-floor windows” on the tower’s east side, but described damage to the tower’s core as “apparently confined to electrical wiring.” 2 The fire spread to portions of the core beyond the 11th floor via telephone cables in a cable shaft.
On the day after the blaze, Fire Commissioner John T. O’Hagan called for the installation of sprinkler systems in the towers. 3 Eventually sprinkler systems were installed throughout the Twin Towers.
Although the data on this fire is limited — there apparently being no publicly available photographs of it — it was clearly less severe than the 2001 North Tower fire, though of longer duration. However, it may have been more severe than the South Tower fire.
The Towering Inferno
It is possible that the arsonist, a nineteen-year-old from the Bronx named Oswald Adorno, got the idea of setting the fire from The Towering Inferno, a movie released late in 1974. In the movie, a fire starts in a utility closet of the 138-story skyscraper due to faulty wiring installed by a corrupt developer. The architect, who learns of the faulty wiring specifications upon returning from a long vacation proclaims, “If you had to cut costs, why didn’t you cut floors instead of corners?”
In a parallel to the movie, Adorno lit the fire inside a closet containing telephone switching equipment. 4
The 1993 Bombing
The First Attack on the World Trade Center
On Friday, February 26, 1993, at 12:18 PM, a large explosion ripped through the public parking garage of the World Trade Center. The explosion resulted in six persons being killed, and more than 1,000 being injured; and resulted in nearly $300 million in property damage. 1
The explosion was caused by a 1500-pound urea-nitrate bomb, packed in a yellow Ford Econoline rental van, and detonated with a timer after the van had been parked in the basement parking garage. The explosion created a crater 200 feet by 100 feet wide and several stories deep. Evacuation of the twin towers began after the blast. Most of the injuries were due to smoke inhalation.
After the bombing, large improvements in the evacuation procedures for the Twin Towers were implemented.
Despite the size of the explosion, it only damaged one support column for the Twin Towers. Cleanup and repair began immediately. Workers removed more than 6,000 tons of debris. The cleanup and repair operation cost about $500 million.
Post-Bombing Safety Upgrades
Evacuation Planning Saved Thousands in the 9-11 Attack
The evacuation following the 1993 garage bomb attack took over six hours, partly because the stairwells were pitch black due to a power failure.
In the wake of the attack the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey began a multi-million-dollar revamping of security in and around the Twin Towers and Buildings 4 and 5. The architect of the security upgrades, which totaled $58 million, was Douglas Karpiloff, the longtime security director of the World Trade Center. 1
Numerous improvements to evacuation facilities and procedures were made in the Twin Towers. These included: the installation of battery-operated light fixtures in the stairwells; the application of bright glow-in-the-dark paint to the handrails and a centerline down the stairs; and the installation of a public address system. 2 Perhaps even more important was the change in attitude of the buildings’ occupants, who reportedly took the fire drills much more seriously after the bombing.
One of several companies that won contracts for the upgrade was Securacom. The same company, with ties to George W. Bush and Marvin Bush, later won an $8.3 million contract for World Trade Center security. 3
The Secrecy-Shrouded Building Holding Giuliani’s Command Center
Building 7 was the dark flat-topped 47-story skyscraper immediately north of the World Trade Center super-block, across Vesey Street. Its designation as 7 World Trade Center is somewhat misleading: whereas WTC 1 through 6 surrounded the WTC plaza and were completed in the 1970s, Building 7 was 300 feet from the plaza and its construction did not begun until 1985. 1 It was of an entirely different architectural style than the other six buildings. It was completely destroyed late in the afternoon on September 11th.
Building 7 was privately owned from the beginning, in contrast to the other six buildings, which were publicly owned until the summer of 2001. Building 7 was formerly the headquarters of the junk-bond firm Drexel Burnham Lambert, which contributed to the savings and loans collapse and $500 billion bailout of the latter 1980s.
Emergency Command Center
The 23rd floor of Building 7 had received 15 million dollars’ worth of renovations to create an emergency command center for then-Mayor Rudolf Giuliani. The features of the command center include:
- Bullet- and bomb-resistant windows
- An independent, secure air and water supply
- The ability to withstand winds of 200 mph
Building 7 was a 100% steel frame building. Like most modern skyscrapers, it had a series of columns ringing its perimeter, and a bundle of columns in its core structure. Its perimeter columns numbered 58 and its core columns numbered 25, according to the rather vague description provided in FEMA’s WTC Building Performance Study. The following figure from the report shows the shape of the building and some details about the structural system. The top four illustrations show the perimeter structure, the middle one shows the footprint, and the bottom three show seven floors of part of the core structure. However, it does not combine views of the core perimeter structure (above) and the core structure (lower portion of below).

Companies that Provided Security at the World Trade Center
A company named Stratesec had an ongoing contractor to handle security at the World Trade Center “up to the day the buildings fell down” according to CEO Barry McDaniel. The company, formerly named Securacom, acquired an $8.3 million World Trade Center contract in October 1996, according to SEC filings. The company also provided security for Dulles International Airport and United Airlines between 1995 and 2001. Two of the commandeered flights on September 11th were United Airlines’, and one took off from Dulles. 1
Marvin P. Bush, brother of George W. Bush, was a principal in the company between 1993 and 2000. A private Kuwaiti-American investment firm with ties to the Bush family was one of the company’s backers.
In the company’s own words, Stratesec has “an open-ended contract with the General Services Administration (GSA) and a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with the agency that allows the government to purchase materials and services from the Company without having to go through a full competition.” It promotes its services to clients such as the armed services and Department of Justice for projects that “often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk government sites.”
The role of Stratesec in providing security to the targets of the September 11th attacks has apparently not been investigated. Asked if FBI or other agents had questioned anyone at Stratesec about the company’s security work in connection with the 9/11 attack, CEO Barry McDaniel said no.
Background for September 11th
The Pentagon is the home of the Department of Defense, with which it is synonymous. It is the most identifiable symbol of U.S. military might.
The Pentagon is the largest office building in the world, with a total floor area of 6,500,000 square feet. Of that 3,800,000 square feet are covered by offices, storage and concessions. That makes the Pentagon about 2,000 times the size of a typical house. The facade of the building is 77 feet high. Each of the five outside walls is 921 feet long. It has a total of 17.5 miles of corridors. The building occupies 29 acres of its 583 acre site, and its a central courtyard covers 5 acres. The 67 acre parking lot has 8,770 spaces for vehicles. There are 7,754 windows, 131 stairways, 19 escalators, 13 elevators, and 284 restrooms. 1
The Pentagon not only has five sides; it has five floors, and five concentric rings. Ten corridors run perpendicular to the rings and connect them.
Sixty years to the day before the September 11th attack, in 1941, ground was broken for the huge building. 2
Details About the World’s Largest Office Building
The following is excerpted from the Pentagon Renovation Program Website. 1
The Pentagon’s unusual five-sided shape was dictated by the site originally proposed (adjacent to Memorial Drive, about three-fourths of a mile north of where the building was actually constructed). An early plan called for a square structure with one corner cut off to accommodate an existing road. This resulted in a skewed Pentagon shape. Serious objections were raised to locating the building on open land directly between Arlington Cemetery and Washingtons Monumental Core, and discussions ensued regarding selection of a building site resulting in less visual and physical impact from the project. During the debate on the site, the project’s chief architects, George Edwin Bergstrom and David J. Witmer, continued to refine the design. The final design retained the five sides, in the form of a true pentagon, which gave rise to the building’s name. That shape resulted in the most efficient use of available space. The concept of using several concentric rings to contain the space evolved during further refinement of design. Preliminary design and drafting took just 34 days. A project of this magnitude and urgency demanded the rapid assembly of an unprecedented design and production effort.
The office of the chief architect rapidly grew to 327 architects and engineers who were supported by 117 field inspectors. The weekly output of prints ranged from 12,000 to 30,000 with reproduction machines running on a 24-hour basis. For periods of time, new drawings were issued nightly. The reproduction effort consumed 15,000 yards of print paper per week.
Construction began on September 11, 1941, and was completed on January 15, 1943. At one stage of construction, 15,000 people were employed on the job working three shifts, 24 hours a day. At night, they worked under floodlights. Construction took just 16 months, a remarkable feat of engineering and management.
The Pentagon building is composed of five concentric pentagonal rings connected by ten radial corridors. Each of its outer walls is 921.6 feet long. The building covers 29 acres, the largest ground area of any office building in the world. A five-acre pentagonal courtyard is located in the building’s center. The building and its central courtyard cover 34 acres. There are 17.5 miles of corridors in the building. The structure is three times the size of the Empire State Building and 50 percent larger than Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. The building rests on 41,492 concrete piles, the combined length of which would stretch 200 miles. The five concentric pentagonal rings are separated by interior courts which serve as light wells. This design feature increases the number of windows allowing natural light. Each ring has five stories. The Mall and River sides of the building have a basement area which includes a partial mezzanine. The innermost and outermost rings have sloping slate roofs, while the other three rings have flat, built-up roofs. The rings are connected at each floor level by a series of ten radial corridors extending from the A ring (innermost) to the E ring (outermost).
Architecture and Engineering of the Pentagon
The Pentagon, considered the largest office building in the world, has many distinctive design features, while being rather ordinary in its construction. The vast building, nearly a mile in circumference, has a footprint in the shape of an equilateral pentagon. In keeping with the theme of five, it has five concentric wings, each of which is five stories high.
The five wings, named Rings A, B, C, D, and E, with E being the outermost, are less distinct than appears from the building’s roof. Only the lightwells between Rings B and C go to the ground. The lightwells between Rings A and B, C and D, and D and E descend only to the base of the third floor.
|These figures from FEMA’s Pentagon Building Performance Report show a radial section through one of the Pentagon’s wedges (above), and a perpendicular section along one of the light wells (below).|
1 The Pentagon’s construction included 42,000 15-inch-wide square steel-reinforced concrete pillars.
Renovation Program Had Hardened the Facade Attacked on 9/11/01
The renovation program included the following improvements to the building:
- Exterior walls reinforced with steel
- Exterior walls backed with Kevlar
- Blast-resistant windows installed
- Fire sprinklers installed
- Automatic fire doors installed
- Building operations and control center created
1 An article in Structure Magazine provided background on the project. It cited the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City as the motivation for the renovation program. It noted that the original design was constrained by the material demands of World War II.
The steel reinforcements to the walls consisted of tubular frames surrounding the window openings and attaching to the reinforced concrete floor slabs. Each windowed wall panel (between vertical concrete columns) was retrofitted with a piece consisting of two horizontal tubes welded to two vertical tubes running from the floor to the ceiling. 3
|This illustration shows reinforcements added to the Pentagon’s walls as seen from the inside. Reinforced concrete columns are shown in gray, and tubular steel reinforcements are pictured in red.|
The reinforcements were to be sequentially applied to the five wedges of the Pentagon over time. Wedge One — one of five sections of the Pentagon — was the first to be retrofitted, and the upgrades to the exterior wall were complete by 9/11/01. Wedge Two was apparently yet to be retrofitted. The plane crashed into the building’s exterior entirely within Wedge One.
Kevlar cloth was stretched between the steel columns to provide blast resistance to the short spans of brick wall. 4
The original windows were replaced with blast-resistant windows nearly two inches thick.
The Air Defense Network
|A room in the Cheyanne Mountain Operations Center|
NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, is the defense shield that normally protects the United States against all forms of airborne attack, including by hijacked aircraft. Any time an aircraft deviates from its course, air traffic controllers request a military intercept according to military response code 7610-4J. Intercept times are especially short in the east-coast corridor where there are numerous bases with combat-ready aircraft on continuous alert.
On September 11th, 2001, the standard operating procedures were apparently suspended.
NORAD’s mission is supported by the Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center which collects data from a worldwide system of satellites, radars, and other sensors and processes that information in real-time. This nerve center continuously monitors events in the airspace of the United Space and of the world. An unofficial website contains the following rundown on some of its capabilities.
The Command Center is the heart of operations in Cheyenne Mountain. In this center, the Command Director and his crew serve as the NORAD and U.S. Space Command Commander in Chief’s direct representative for monitoring, processing, and interpreting missile, space or air events which could have operational impacts on our forces or capabilities, or could be potential threats to North America or U.S. and allied forces overseas. The Command Center is linked directly to the National Command Authorities of both the U.S. and Canada as well as to regional command centers overseas. When required, the Command Director must consult directly with the NORAD and U.S. Space Command Commander in Chief for time-critical assessments of missile, air, and space events; he takes action to ensure the Commander in Chief’s response and direction are properly conveyed and executed.
Air Defense Operations Center:
The Air Defense Operations Center provides command and control for the air surveillance and air defense network for North America. In 1994, they monitored over 700 “unknown” radar tracks entering North American airspace. Many of these were subsequently identified as friendly aircraft that had erred from flight plans or used improper procedures. Yet nearly 100 were identified as illegal drug-carrying aircraft that were subsequently prosecuted by the U.S. and Canadian Drug Enforcement Agencies.

Combined Intelligence Watch Center:
The Combined Intelligence Watch serves as the nation’s indications and warning center for worldwide threats from space, missile, and strategic air activity, as well as geopolitical unrest that could affect North America and U.S. forces/interests abroad. The Watch gathers intelligence information to assist all the Cheyenne Mountain work centers in correlating and analyzing events to support NORAD and U.S. Space Command decision makers.
The Systems Center ensures continuity of operations throughout the Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center by providing communications and computer systems management for over 100 computer systems and 600 communications circuits in support of NORAD and U.S. Space Command missile warning, space control, and air defense missions. This center is also responsible for monitoring all environmental systems maintained within Cheyenne Mountain, to include electrical power generation, water purity, integration of communications and computer systems testing, operator and maintenance technician training, and maintenance of all Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center communications and computer systems. 1
The FAS.org site describes the Cheyenne Mountain facility slightly differently than the above passage, which may reflect changes to the facility in recent years. 2
Standard Interception Procedures
The following Air Traffic Control Intercept Procedures are published in an FAA online manual.
b. Intercept phases
1. Phase One- Approach Phase.
During peacetime, intercepted aircraft will be approached from the stern. Generally two interceptor aircraft will be employed to accomplish the identification. The flight leader and wingman will coordinate their individual positions in conjunction with the ground controlling agency. Their relationship will resemble a line abreast formation. At night or in IMC [Instrument Meteorological Conditions, i.e., they can’t see the other plane], a comfortable radar trail tactic will be used. Safe vertical separation between interceptor aircraft and unknown aircraft will be maintained at all times.
2. Phase Two- Identification Phase.
The intercepted aircraft should expect to visually acquire the lead interceptor and possibly the wingman during this phase in visual meteorological conditions (VMC). The wingman will assume a surveillance position while the flight leader approaches the unknown aircraft. . . . The flight leader will then initiate a gentle closure toward the intercepted aircraft, stopping at a distance no closer than absolutely necessary to obtain the information needed. . . . 1

Thermate is a mixture of thermite and pyrotechnic additives which have been found to be superior to standard thermite for incendiary purposes. Its composition by weight is generally thermite 68.7%, barium nitrate 29.0%, sulphur 2.0% and binder 0.3%. Addition of barium nitrate to thermite increases its thermal effect, creates flame in burning and significantly reduces the ignition temperature. Thermate burns at 2500°C ( 4532°F). Steel melts at at around 1370° C (2500°F).

At that time, bin Laden was already being sought for trial for his involvement in two U.S. embassy bombings and the U.S.S. Cole attack. The meeting was held in bin Laden’s private suite in a Dubai hospital.
MOSSAD AND 911
“We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”
Reportedly the first words out of the mouth of Sivan Kurzberg after being stopped by police on a service road off Route 3, near New Jersey’s Giants Stadium on Sept 11, 2001 at 4 pm. He was one of the “dancing Israelis”. The others were his brother Paul Kurzberg, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari. [These are the real people that took down the world trade center -ed.]
This statement would correspond to 9/11 being a Mossad false flag operation. The Mossad are experts and very experienced at causing atrocities and laying the blame for them on other countries.

The head investigator of the USS Cole bombing is assassinated – In Sept he got a job offer from a Larry Silverstein ( owner WTC ). Oddly O’Neill was missing for two days before 9/11 –miraculously his body was discover in tact in the WTC ruins.
Dov Zakheim’s Homeland Security biz and the remote control of aircraft – Not many Americans know who he is, but they ignore him at their own peril. If for no other reason, a dual Israeli-American citizen as Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer of the United States Dept. of Defense should raise some eyebrows. He was also President Bush’s senior foreign policy advisor during the 2000 campaign.
Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, organized the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in order “to start a war between Muslims and Christians,” according to the Chief Minister of Pakistan’s Northwest Frontier Province.

And no Air Force jets scramble until 10 a.m.
9-11, Mossad, the CIA and “False Flag Operations” – Eckehardt Werthebach, former president of Germany’s domestic intelligence service, Verfassungsschutz, told American Free Press that “the deathly precision” and “the magnitude of planning” behind the attacks would have needed “years of planning.” Such a sophisticated operation, Werthebach said, would require the “fixed frame” of a state intelligence organization, something not found in a “loose group” of terrorists like the one allegedly led by Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg.

Israel was part of the Iran-Contra operation. Israel has a corner on the world market in the illegal drug MDMA known as Ecstasy or XTC. Tens of millions of pills are smuggled into the US every year. Israel’s Mossad is the equivalent of the CIA in the US.
Sharon Spy Network? EIR First To Reveal Israeli Spy Teams In US – The Dec. 4 2001 edition of Executive Intelligence Review’s Executive Alert Service provided the first public exposure of the presence of hostile Israeli intelligence teams on U.S. soil prior to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and mooted Israeli foreknowledge of the attacks.
Who Attacked The USA? NEWS EMBARGO AFTER ISRAELI LINK LEAK By David Stern – If verified, the news of Israel’s involvement in the US attack will come as no surprise to intelligence experts. The state of Israel has a long history of covert operations against Western targets with attacks on the King David Hotel, USS Liberty, murder of a Scandinavian UN envoy as well as espionage against the US during the Jonathan Pollard case.
Israeli Mossad & 9/11 PDF – The belief that Israel might engage in such deceptive terrorism against the United States was expressed in a 2001 study by the Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS). A poignant reference to this study appeared in a front page article in the Washington Times on September 10, 2001, one day before the horrific attack The article read: “Of the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, the SAMS officers say: ‘Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.'”
THE FIVE ISRAELIS ARRESTED ON 9-11 – Witnesses saw them celebrating at Liberty State Park after the initial impact. Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating in a Jersey City parking lot.
Shocking!!! Israel Did 911 – The Irrefutable Evidence – What were these 11 Israelis doing trying to impersonate Al Qaeda men? Infiltrating?…perhaps. Framing?…more likely. But the important precedent to understand is this: Israeli agents were once caught red handed impersonating Muslim hijackers!
Suspected Israeli Spies Held by U.S. Wednesday, December 12, 2001 By Carl Cameron – The Israelis, a handful of whom are described as active Israeli military or intelligence operatives, have been detained on immigration charges or under the new Patriot Anti-Terrorism Law. Federal investigators said some of them failed polygraph questions inquiring about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States.
Odigo says workers were warned of attack By Yuval Dror – Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company’s management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.
NPR Newscaster: Israel Had Advance Knowledge of September 11 Attacks – What lends added credit to Martin’s remarks is that at the time of the attacks on the World Trade Center’s twin towers, no Zionist agent was present in the buildings. Furthermore, the local office of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the World Trade Center had also been evacuated, as was revealed later. This clearly smacks of collaboration and involvement of the CIA and Israeli intelligence service Mossad with regard to the September 11 incidents.
The ‘Israeli Art Student’ Files Media coverage of Israel’s underground in the US – and the 9/11 connection.
Spy Rumors Fly on Gusts of Truth Americans Probing Reports of Israeli Espionage By MARC PERELMAN – The five men — Sivan and Paul Kurzberg, Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari and Yaron Shmuel — were arrested eight hours after the attacks by the Bergen County, N.J., police while driving in an Urban Moving Systems van. The police acted on an FBI alert after the men allegedly were seen acting strangely while watching the events from the roof of their warehouse and the roof of their van.
9/11 v The Truth Comes Out Israel’s 9/11 connection exposed 2002-03-11 – As long as US and Israeli officials continue to lie straight-faced, while gullible journalists look to find a reason to believe government lies, Intelligence Online is threatening to publish the leaked DEA report in its entirety:
“‘It seems irresponsible for us to publish it, but if the denials go on, we could put the report on our Internet site and in so doing possibly blacken the names of the people most exposed,’ the editor of the Intelligence Online site, Guillaume Dasqui?, said. – ‘The document we have in our possession details not only the identities of the members of this network, but also their activities in the Israeli army, and even their serial numbers in the intelligence services, their passport numbers and their validity, and their visas and their validity.”
9/11 – ARE AMERICANS THE VICTIMS OF A HOAX? – It is also quite possible, indeed likely, that the United States is being spoofed by a third party to trigger a war. It has happened before. According to Victor Ostrovsky, a defector from Israel’s secret service, Mossad, Israel decided to mount a false flag operation designed to further discredit Libya, and provoke the US to attack an Arab nation. A transmitter loaded with pre-recorded messages was planted in Tripoli, Libya, by a Mossad team.
Z/LOBBY BURIAL OF THE SPY AND TERROR SCANDAL Posted By: Rosalinda – The Camera mobilization was, in fact, directed by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), a group which is at the heart of the Israeli penetration of the U.S. defense and national security establishment.
Bombs in the Building: World Trade Center ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is a Conspiracy Fact By Randy Lavello – He goes on to claim “A U.S. military intelligence report revealed details of an international intelligence memo linking Mossad to the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. The memo was in circulation three weeks before the attacks.”
“I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing — although that was part of it — by a sovereign foreign government… It will become public at some point when it’s turned over to the archives, but that’s 20 or 30 years from now. ”
— Senator Graham as quoted in Senator: At Least One Foreign Country Assisted the 9/11 Terrorists
“Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.” — US official quoted in Carl Cameron’s Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.
Israeli Link to September 11 Terrorism?– Five of the Israelis, say Galloway, were arrested after “Angry witnesses had seen the five at a waterfront park in New Jersey apparently laughing and clowning, and photographing themselves in front of the burning towers.” An FBI surveillance team had been monitoring the five and took photographs of their activities.
Ariel Sharon: The terrorist behind the 9-11 Attack! By David Duke – “Why would anyone want to car-bomb the former Lebanese Phalanges militia leader and government minister Elie Hobeika in Beirut – less than two days after he agreed to give evidence against Mr Sharon in a Belgian court, which may try the Israeli leader for the murder of up to 1,700 Palestinian civilians in the Sabra and Chatila refugee camps in September, 1982?”
The ‘Urban Myth’ Gambit. Apologists ‘spin’ Israel’s spy operation in the US 2002-03-13 – that the US government’s National Counterintelligence Center put out an alert in March 2001 warning of persistent attempts by individuals identifying themselves as “art students” from Israel to penetrate US government facilities,
Re: Did the Mossad commit the terrorist acts against the US on 9/11? – Regardless of your view of World War II and whether or not the USA belonged in the fight, the essential point which cannot be refuted is again this: years before World War II had even started, the Zionists had yet again demonstrated that they had no aversion to sending Americans to die for their own interests.
Israelis Arrested and Detained for 9-11 By Michael Collins Piper American Free Press – Attorney General John Ashcroft has released an Israeli suspect in the Sept. 11 terrorist events who “had trouble” with a seven-hour polygraph test administered by the FBI—but who “did better on a second try.” In other words, the suspect still flunked both times.
THE FIVE ISRAELIS ARRESTED ON 9-11 from WhatReallyHappened.com
Sharon Trip to New York Canceled Before Attack – “Arab diplomatic sources revealed to the Jor danian al-Watan newspaper that those Israelis remained absent that day based on hints from the Israeli General Security Apparatus, the Shabak, a fact which evoked unannounced suspicions by American officials who wanted to know how the Israeli government learned about the incident before it occurred and the reasons why it refrained from passing on to the U.S. authorities the information it had,” the station said.
NEWS EMBARGO AFTER ISRAELI LINK LEAK! Who Attacked the USA? by David Stern – Intel (Canada)
SEC SECRET PROBE OF STOCK DEALINGS BEFORE 9/11 – Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens, sold “short” a list of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the pending attacks. These speculators operated out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be “in the millions of dollars.”
2 found with video of Sears Tower MICHELLE MOWAD, Special to The Mercury October 17, 2001 – The manager was able to provide township police with the Florida registration number of the tractor-trailer and said that a sign posted on the side of the vehicle read “Moving Systems Incorporated” and included a phone number, police said.
THE ISRAELI “MOVERS” FILE – Read these stories about those five Israeli “movers” (later confirmed to be MOSSAD secret agents) who were arrested in New Jersey, and held in solitary confinement for 40 days after they were seen cheering the 9-11 attacks. They were also suspected of plotting to bomb the George Washington Bridge. Despite the attempted damage control of some of these pro-Israeli articles, they still present enough hard facts to allow us to easily dismiss the claim that these were innocent Israelis arrested for minor visa violations.

Underwriter’s Laboratories disputes and disproves claim that fire brought down the WTC Posted Nov 12, 2004 – We know that the steel components were certified to ASTM E119. The time temperature curves for this standard require the samples to be exposed to temperatures around 2000F for several hours. And as we all agree, the steel applied met those specifications. Additionally, I think we can all agree that even un-fireproofed steel will not melt until reaching red-hot temperatures of nearly 3000F (2). Why Dr. Brown would imply that 2000F would melt the high-grade steel used in those buildings makes no sense at all.

Commentary By Danny Goldberg – Now, when most of the world maintain that the pentagon is involved or behind the 911 attacks, and NOT bin-Laden, we need a change of leadership in America, and we need to clean up American military, too, otherwise we are at the end of our civilization!

“We should have had orange or red-type of alert in June or July of 2001” By Eric Boehlert March 26, 2004 – A former FBI translator told the 9/11 commission that the bureau had detailed information well before Sept. 11, 2001, that terrorists were likely to attack the U.S. with airplanes.
911 Was Not An Attack It Was Murder Jim Kirwin email@example.com 3-26-4 – Once the planes had been identified as the planes that had been taken over by unknown hijackers, the chain of command would have automatically been engaged with requests for decisions as to how to respond. Simultaneously, messages should have come from NORAD headquarters to the White House, or Air Force One – wherever the president was at the time – requesting orders for what the fighters should do regarding the potentially hostile aircraft.
BREAKING SPECIAL REPORT FROM 9-11 HEARINGS DOJ Asked FBI Translator To Change Pre 9-11 Intercepts by Tom Flocco – FBI translator, Sibel Edmonds, was offered a substantial raise and a full time job in order to not go public that she had been asked by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to retranslate and adjust the translations of [terrorist] subject intercepts that had been received before September 11, 2001 by the FBI and CIA.
9/11 Nonsense By William Rivers Pitt t r u t h o u t | Perspective Wednesday 17 March 2004 – The Bush administration received a blizzard of warnings before September 11 that something huge was about to happen. The security agencies of Germany, Israel, Egypt and Russia delivered specific warnings about airplanes being used as bombs against prominent American targets. FBI agents were raising alarms in Minnesota and Arizona.
SEARS TOWER SECURITY BOUGHT FIRM TRYING DECODING WTC… Posted By: Rayelan Saturday, 13 March 2004 – Ontrack/Convar, the German company that was trying to recover data from WTC hard drives in order to determine who was responsible for last minute financial transactions on 9/11, was purchased after the fact by none other than Kroll Inc. (Kroll O’gara Eisenhardt)in June 2002. Kroll is a huge, multi-national security firm which has strong ties to US intelligence.
JFK, 9-11, and the REAL America: Tying It All Together by Jon Phalen – A rigorous civilian investigation of 9-11 would help resolve such doubts. If Bush and the rest were standing on firm ground, they would fully support such a thing. Instead, they have worked to thwart both its formation and its progress, using every resource within their reach. Some time last year, they seem to have realized they were only fueling suspicions this way, so Bush grudgingly approved an “independent” investigation. The arrogance of this bunch is so disabling, however, that they actually damaged their credibility even further by naming Henry Kissinger to lead it. This is a man whose dedication to “US interests” verges on homicidal psychosis (see his treatment of Cambodians 1970, Chileans 1973, East Timorese and Kurds 1975, MUCH more). He could only be expected to skew this investigation accordingly, i. e., to omit and cover up any issue not conducive to empire building. Ironically, even Henry had the sense to admit he was an inappropriate choice, thus resigning from this duty, whereupon Bush immediately returned to his original tactic of stonewalling (1). Could the man possibly have something to hide?

Did Cheney give Orders for the Stand Down? – The testimony of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta on May 23 about Cheney’s actions is revealing. Mineta said he arrived at the Presidential Emergency Operating Center (PEOC) at 9:20 a.m. where he observed the Vice President taking charge:
Mineta: There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, “The plane is 50 miles out.The plane is 30 miles out.” And when it got down to, “The plane is 10 miles out,” the young man also said to the vice president, “Do the orders still stand?”
And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?” Well, at the time I didn’t know what all that meant.

THE ENEMY IS INSIDE THE GATES Date 11/4/01 – A hotly debated question Who would be in command of such an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)? Were they Chinese — Russians — Saudis — Israelis — NATO ? All of these countries possess AWACS-type aircraft. All (except the Saudis) have the capability to utilize electro-magnetic pulsing (EMP) to knock out on-board flight controls and communications of targeted aircraft, and then, to fly them by remote control.
AUTOMATIC PILOT AND 9.11 – An expert’s opinion – Hill also quoted Bob Ayling, former British Airways boss, in an interview given to the London Economist on September 20th, 2001. Ayling admitted that it was now possible to control an aircraft in flight from either the ground or in the air. This was confirmed by expert witnesses at the inquiry who testified that airliners could be controlled by electro-magnetic pulse or radio frequency instrumentation from command and control platforms based either in the air or at ground level.
SECRECY SURROUNDS A BUSH BROTHER’S ROLE IN 9/11 SECURITY by Margie Burns Vol. 9, No. 2021 – The American Reporter – January 20, 2003 – Marvin P. Bush, a younger brother of George W. Bush, was a principal in the company from 1993 to 2000, when most of the work on the big projects was done. But White House responses to 9/11 have not publicly disclosed the company’s part in providing security to any of the named facilities, and many of the public records revealing the relationships are not public.
Bin Laden: AUTHENTIC INTERVIEW by Carol A. Valentine Curator, Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum www.Public-Action.com Copyright, October, 2001 – USAMA BIN LADEN: I have already said that we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the [U.S. Government] system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom. This system is totally in control of the American-Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States. It is clear that the American people are themselves the slaves of the Jews and are forced to live according to the principles and laws laid by them. So, the punishment should reach Israel. In fact, it is Israel, which is giving a blood bath to innocent Muslims and the U.S. is not uttering a single word.

“The Arabs Are Coming! The Arabs Are Coming!” Are they really? Those who conspired to attack America on 9/11 wanted us to believe this. Many commentators, “experts,” and “journalists” keep swearing that this is true.
KAMINSKI: ARREST THE PRESIDENT NOW! Posted By: WhiteRaven Friday, 19 September 2003 – On September 11, 2001, the most infamous day in American history, the tallest buildings in New York were not knocked down by airplanes hijacked by Arabs — they were destroyed by demolition charges.
This is no longer wild conspiracy theory — it is a series of provable facts, deftly presented on a website that every American should not only read but possibly memorize, so they can repeat it verbatim to every law enforcement officer in the country. The web site is located here.
“Both Wars were planned in advance before 9/11” – This blueprint furthermore states that the process of transforming the US into “tomorrow’s dominant force” is likely to be a long one in the absence of “some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”.
Skepticism about the Official Explanation of 9-11 Spreads Ronda Hauben 15.09.2003 – One speaker compared the U.S. in 2003 to the period in Hitler’s Germany just after the Reichstag Fire. Regardless of who was responsible for the criminal act on September 11, 2001, he maintained that the Bush administration has used it as the pretext to attack the right to dissent in the U.S.
Map: Hijacked 9/11 Flights and Military Bases – The flights went through some of the most heavily militarized parts of the country, yet nothing could be done to stop them?
September 11th And The Bush Administration Compelling Evidence for Complicity Walter E. Davis, PhD 08/31/03: – The magnitude of the crisis is readily apparent by noting that 9/11 serves as a pretext for a never-ending war against the world, including preemptive strikes against defenseless, but resource rich countries.
9/11 conspiracy theories gaining ground Ralf Isermann Posted Mon, 08 Sep 2003 – Conspiracy theories on the September 11 attacks are gaining ground in Germany two years on, with books claiming that the US government was behind the atrocities climbing bestseller lists. [Germany is lucky to have publishing companies that dare to publish the truth! -ed.]
Sept. 11 conspiracy claims find large readership Book that explores theories of CIA involvement in attacks achieves bestseller status in Germany By Michael Gavin – Die CIA und der 11. September. Internationaler Terror und die Rolle der Geheimdienste author, Andreas von Bülow (The CIA and Sept. 11: International Terror and the Role of the Secret Services) was up two places to No. 5 in the non-fiction segment of this week’s Der Spiegel list, probably the country’s most authoritative ranking of book sales.
The World Trade Center Demolition and the So-Called War on Terrorism – The inescapable conclusion is that September 11th was an inside job, planned and carried out by Americans (with possible foreign assistance) acting from within U.S. military and state security organizations. The three thousand people who died in these attacks were killed not by Arab terrorists but by agents of the U.S. government. If you are initially skeptical of this, read on, but be prepared to consider with an open mind the evidence and arguments presented below.

German Firm Probes Final World Trade Center Deals By Erik Kirschbaum 8-6-3 – “There is a suspicion that some people had advance knowledge of the approximate time of the plane crashes in order to move out amounts exceeding $100 million,” Wagner said. “”They thought that the records of their transactions could not be traced after the main frames were destroyed.”
Fire Dept Tape Invalidates Key Points Official 911 Story By Robert Anderson TOP_VIEW Internet News Inc. 8-3-3 – It means that the total structural failure of the two massive, superbly-engineered/designed edifices known as the WTC towers did NOT result from jet fuel flash-fires burning at under 900 degrees Fahrenheit — when steel used in WTC construction needed temperatures over THREE TIMES HIGHER to actually “MELT.”
Former Congressional Nominee Threatened by U.S. Marshal in 9/11 Evidence Cover-Up by Tom Flocco – The former congressional nominee then offered Schiavo a startling disclosure: “In 1970, during the maiden flight of the new Lockheed L-1011, engineers on board the plane stated that ‘this plane could be flown without pilots’ — they could land and take off in a ‘man-less’ flight.”

Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77 By Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D – No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three ADDITIONAL people not listed by American Airline sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras. I did give American the opportunity to “revise” their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague. The AFIP claims that the only “passenger” body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified.

911 Censorship in America
Updated September 24, 2002
Very strange things have been happening with both of these websites
within the past two weeks.
Our 911Timeline.net site was first listed fourth in Google (when you
typed in “911 Timeline”) on September 10th and then a few days later it
totally disappeared from Google. A few more days passed, and it
reemerged listed fourth again. Yesterday our 911Timeline.net once again
totally disappeared from Google.
Our MyCountryRightOrWrong.net/NORAD911StandDownMath.htm page was listed
first in Google (when you typed in “NORAD 911”) since August 24th and
then on September 15th it totally disappeared from Google. Yesterday
MyCountryRightOrWrong.net/NORAD911StandDownMath.htm page magically
reappeared listed first on Google (when you typed in “NORAD 911”).
Who could possibly be doing this and why?
The following is our original article from September 16th:
The United States Military and the North American Aerospace Defense
Command (NORAD) have just made the following two websites completely
disappear from Google and every other search engine.

How convenient of them to stop our freedom of speech.
Copy of Extreme Tracking Referrers Page for NORAD 911 Stand Down Math
Why have both of these websites disappeared from Google and every other
search engine? Because both of these websites simply tell the truth
about the elementary mathematical facts of the NORAD stand down on the
morning of 911. This is the irrefutable “Smoking Gun” about 911 taken
from NORAD’s own press release.
The two United States Air Force (USAF) F-15 fighters ordered from Otis
to intercept United Airlines Flight 175 were flying at only 23.9% of
their top speed from the 8:52 take-off to 9:03 when United Airlines
Flight 175 impacts the South Tower of the WTC.
At 9:02:54 United Airlines Flight 175 impacts the South Tower of the
between the 78th and 84th floors. NORAD says the F-15’s from Otis are
still 71 miles away. This means their average flight speed was only
23.9% of their top speed in trying to intercept United Airlines Flight
175. Otis is 153 miles from WTC – F-15’s have a top speed of 1875 MPH.
Minus 71 miles from 153 miles = 82 miles covered in the 11 minutes from
8:52 to 9:03. Sixty minutes divided by 11 minutes = 5.45 x 82 miles =
447.3 MPH divided by 1875 MPH = 23.9% of their top speed.
To cover the distance from when these fighters took off from Otis at
8:52 till the time they reached the WTC at 9:11 they were flying at
25.8% of their top speed.
The two F-15’s covered the 153 miles in 19 minutes from the 8:52
take-off to the time they reached the WTC at 9:11. Sixty minutes
by 19 minutes = 3.16 x 153 miles = 483.2 MPH divided by 1875 MPH =
of their top speed.
The two or three USAF F-16 fighters ordered from Langley to intercept
American Airlines Flight 77 were flying at only 14.3% of their top
from 9:30 take-off to 9:37 when American Airlines Flight 77 impacts the
At 9:37 American Airlines Fight 77 impacts the western side of the
Pentagon. NORAD says the F-16’s from Langley are still 105 miles away.
This means their average flight speed was only 14.3% of their top speed
in trying to intercept American Airlines Flight 77. Langley is 130
from the Pentagon – F-16’s have a top speed of 1500 MPH. Minus 105 from
130 = 25 miles covered in the 7 minutes from 9:30 to 9:37. Sixty
minutes divide by 7 minutes = 8.57 x 25 miles = 214.3 MPH divided by
15000 MPH = 14.3% of their top speed.
To cover the distance from when these fighters took off from Langley at
9:30 till the time they reach the Pentagon at 9:49 they were flying at
only 27.4% of their top speed.
It takes the F-16’s from Langley 19 minutes to reach Washington. This
means their average flight speed was only 27.4% of their top speed in
trying to protect our nations capital. Langley is 130 miles from the
Pentagon – F-16’s have a top speed of 1500 MPH – Sixty minutes divided
by 19 minutes = 3.16 x 130 miles = 410.5 MPH divided by 1500 MPH =
of their top speed.
