CNN's Jamie McIntyre rebuts official account of Pentagon attack

Standing in front of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, CNN's senior Pentagon correspondent since November 1992, Jamie McIntyre reported: "From my close up inspection there's no evidence of the plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. . . . . The only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you could pick up in your hand. There are no large tail section, wing section, fuselage nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon."

Fire Chief Ed Plaugher corroborates Jamie McIntyre's report. At a Dept. of Defense News Briefing, presented by Assistant Secretary Victoria Clarke on September 12, 2001 at 10:16 a.m., when asked: "Is there anything left of the aircraft at all?" said: "there are some small pieces of aircraft ... there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing."

McIntyre's bio at CNN reads: "Six months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, McIntyre's contacts provided security camera pictures of American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon, images aired first on CNN."

NIST 'unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse'

NIST has admitted what was clear from a careful reading of their reports that the simulations they conducted went as far as collapse initiation. They do not explain the total collapse of the World Trade Center towers. The following are quotes from a NIST letter dated September 27, 2007.

B. NIST Computer Simulations: "NIST has used an extensive database of photographic and video evidence to validate the models used to analyze the behavior of the towers up to the point of initiation of collapse."

E. The WTC Steel Temperature: "While NIST did not find evidence that any of the recovered core columns experienced temperatures in excess of 250C, it is not possible to extrapolate from such a small sample size to state that none of the core columns on the fire affected floors reached temperatures in excess of 250C."

F. The Goal of the WTC Report and Its Overall Analysis: "NIST has stated that it did not analyze the collapse of the towers. NIST carried its analysis to the point where the buildings reached global instability. . . . we were unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse."

A draft report, long delayed, of the 47-story World Trade Center building 7 has yet to be released.

FBI contradicts reports of phone calls from planes

"[T]wo low-altitude calls from Flight 93 were, according to the FBI report, the only two cell phone calls made from all four flights," writes author David Ray Griffin. Last year, according to Griffin, American Airlines said that their "757s in 2001 had no onboard phones".

95 years before 9/11, Gandhi launched 'truth-force'

On September 11, 1906, Mohandas K. Gandhi, a 37-year old lawyer, rose to address the packed Empire Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa. This speech was the first salvo in the non-violent movement that would overthrow the British Empire. The movement came to be known as Satyagraha—the force which is born of truth and love or nonviolence.

FBI refuses to confirm identities of 9/11 aircraft

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has denied a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request #1093127-000 (or #1083127-000) for documentation confirming the recovery and positive identification of debris from the four aircraft identified with September 11, 2001.
