FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public

There were many things, in hindsight, that were disturbing at Ground Zero. It was odd to me that I was dispatched to go to New York even before the second plane hit the South Tower, while the media was still reporting only that a “small plane” had collided with the North Tower — far too small of a catastrophe at that point to involve FEMA . FEMA was mobilized within minutes, whereas it took ten days for it to deploy to New Orleans to respond to Hurricane Katrina, even with abundant advance warning! It was odd to me that all cameras were so fiercely prohibited within the secured perimeter of Ground Zero, that the entire area was declared a crime scene and yet the “evidence” within that crime scene was so rapidly removed and destroyed. And then it was very odd to me when I learned that FEMA and several other federal agencies had already moved into position at their command center at Pier 92 on September 10th, one day before the attacks!

. . . We are asked to believe that all four of the “indestructible” black boxes of the two jets that struck the twin towers were never found because they were completely vaporized, yet I have footage of the rubber wheels of the landing gear nearly undamaged, as well as the seats, parts of the fuselage and a jet turbine that were absolutely not vaporized. This being said, I do find it rather odd that such objects could have survived fairly intact the type of destruction that turned most of the Twin Towers into thin dust. And I definitely harbor some doubts about the authenticity of the “jet” turbine, far too small to have come from one of the Boeings!

. . . When the North Tower fell, the US Customs House (Building 6) was crushed and totally incinerated. Much of the underground levels beneath it were also destroyed. But there were voids. And it was into one of those voids, recently uncovered, that I descended with a special Task Force to investigate. It was there we found the security antechamber to the vault, badly damaged. At the far end of the security office was the wide steel door to the vault, a combination code keypad in the cinderblock wall beside it. But the wall was cracked and partially crumbled, and the door was sprung partially open. So we checked inside with our flashlights. Except for several rows of empty shelves, there was nothing in the vault but dust and debris. It had been emptied. Why was it empty? And when could it have been emptied?

Pentagon 9/11: witness accounts

September 11, 2001

9:32 a.m. — Reports of “massive damage to the west side of the building . . . Multiple standard-issue, battery-operated wall clocks . . . stopped between 9:31 and 9:32-1/2”. (Barbara Honegger, "The Pentagon Attack Papers," physics911.net, September 6, 2006)

9:xx — Captain Defina arrives at Pentagon "two to three minutes" after seeing a plume of smoke, and his FMFD Engine 331 "knocked down the bulk of the fire in the first seven minutes after their arrival". (Stephen Murphy, National Fire Protection Association Journal, November 1, 2001)

9:37:46 — Flight 77 traveling at 530 mph strikes the Pentagon (The 9/11 Commission Report, p10)

Morning — “From my close up inspection there's no evidence of a 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 sections, wing sections, fuselage - nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon. . . . It wasn't till about 45 minutes later . . . that all of the floors collapsed.” (CNN Senior Correspondent Jamie McIntyre)

Morning — Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski, who witnessed "an unforgettable fireball, 20 to 30 feet in diameter", notes “a strange absence of airliner debris, . . . This visible evidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to the secretary of defense, who in an unfortunate slip of the tongue referred to the aircraft that slammed into the Pentagon as a 'missile'." (9/11 and American Empire)

"Gen. Larry Arnold, revealed that he ordered one of his jets to fly down low over the Pentagon shortly after the attack that morning, and that his pilot reported back that there was no evidence that a plane had hit the building." (Barbara Honegger, "The Pentagon Attack Papers," physics911.net, September 6, 2006)

September 12, 2001

10:16 a.m. — Arlington County Fire Chief Ed Plaugher, at briefing with Assistant Secretary Victoria Clarke, 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." . . . Reporters on the scene were "handcuffed and dragged away". (DOD Transcript)

September 15, 2001

11:00 a.m. — Question during presentation by Lee Evey, Pentagon Renovation Manager: “One thing that's confusing – if it came in the way you described, at an angle, why then are not the wings outside? I mean, the wings would have shorn off. The tail would have shorn off. And yet there's apparently no evidence of the aircraft outside the E ring.” (DOD Transcript)

Later

“At the Pentagon, the plaintiff was at her desk, with her baby, in her office on the first floor, when large explosions occurred, walls crumbled and the ceiling fell in. Although her desk is just some forty feet from the supposed impact point, and she went out through the blown-open front of the building afterwards, she never saw any sign that an airliner crashed through.” (UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK by APRIL GALLOP, for Herself and as Mother and Next Friend of ELISHA GALLOP, a Minor)

9/11: The official account of Flight 77 defies the laws of science

"The official account of Flight 77 on September 11, 2001 defies the laws of science," says Mr. Enver Masud — an engineer.

Calculations based on its Flight Data Recorder (FDR), prove that American Airlines Flight 77 could not have struck the Pentagon in the manner described in official reports.

Given the topography, and the flight path defined by the FDR data provided by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), anyone competent in geometry and physics can calculate the force exerted on “Flight 77” when it would have to transition from its downward path to level flight prior to striking the Pentagon.

Reconstructing Flight 77’s path from the FDR data is not a trivial exercise. It requires expensive software, and details of the topography below the alleged flight path. Pilots for 9/11 acquired the software, and painstakingly drew the topography to simulate “Flight 77’s” path.

From the flight path information provided by Pilots for 9/11 Truth, we calculate a downward force on “Flight 77” of 33 times the force of gravity, i.e. 33 Gs, when the aircraft would have to transition from its downward path to level flight about 200 yards in front of the Pentagon.

The Boeing 757 would act as if it had increased its weight by 8,276,850 lbs, or 32 times its normal weight.

Flight 77 could not possibly survive this G-Force.

Had Flight 77 attempted this maneuver, it would have crashed on the lawn in front of the Pentagon — the pilot would not have been any condition to fly with "the top of the fuselage of the aircraft no more than 20 ft above the ground" (Pentagon Building Performance Report, p14).

Therefore, Flight 77 could not be the object seen flying level across the Pentagon lawn at "530 miles per hour" (The 9/11 Commission Report, p10) in the Pentagon security camera film.

This single fact — the G-Force on “Flight 77” — is sufficient to refute the official account of Flight 77.

Woman held in psychiatric ward for questioning 9/11

I was wrongly diagnosed as delusional by the psychiatric staff of Ward 7 at Northland Base Hospital in Whangarei [New Zealand] and held against my will for 11 days in mid-2006, because I maintained the attacks of 9/11 were orchestrated by criminal elements inside the US Administration.

9/11 aims to become single largest day of service

President Barack Obama is asking Americans to volunteer on Sept. 11, making this year's anniversary of the terror attacks the first National Day of Service and Remembrance, organizers announced Thursday.

The real service would be to determine the truth about what really happened on September 11, 2001.

Detainee to question 9/11 suspect

A federal judge has granted a prisoner challenging his detention by the military at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, permission to ask questions of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of Al Qaeda’s Sept. 11 plot who is the camp’s most notorious inmate.

Question to National Geographic re '9/11: Science and Conspiracy'

Scientific Evidence Proves Official Account of 'Flight 77' Is False: Given the topography, the force generated by the transition of 'Flight 77' from its downward path to level flight would cause the aircraft to crash before striking the Pentagon. How do you plan to rebut this?

Was Robert Novak father of the 9/11 truth movement?

"Security experts and airline officials agree privately that the simultaneous hijacking of four jetliners was an 'inside job,' probably indicating complicity beyond malfeasance," said Novak in the lead sentence of his weekly column only two days after 9-11.

Novak was not the only journalist to imply that insiders were active in implementing 9-11. New York Times columnist William Safire theorized that the terrorists had assistance from within the major U.S. intelligence agencies.

Scientist changes mind on cause of WTC collapse

Dr. Frank Greening has apparently changed his mind regarding the cause of collapse of the World Trade Center.

On March 1, 2005, Dr. Greening wrote: "An analysis of the energetics of the WTC collapse events has shown that the kinetic energy of the aircraft collisions and the subsequent gravitational energy released by the descending blocks of floors were quite sufficient to destroy the twin towers in the manner observed. The use of explosive devices in either of the two towers is not necessary to explain the collapse events and is considered to be highly unlikely."

Today, speaking on “FAIR & BALANCED” with Kevin Barrett, he expressed his doubts.
