VIDEO: 9/11 Mysteries

"Excellent. The best of the 9/11 movies." --David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor

"WOW! is my reaction to this movie. Great insight into demolitions and what really happened on 9/11/2001." --Steven E. Jones, physics professor, Brigham Young University

"An outstanding contribution to understanding 9/11. Simply superb." --James H. Fetzer, founder, Scholars for 911 Truth

Watch this video, and see if you still believe the U.S. government's conspiracy theory.

NIST’s findings do not support the 'pancake theory' of collapse

NIST’s findings do not support the “pancake theory” of collapse, which is premised on a progressive failure of the floor systems in the WTC towers (the composite floor system—that connected the core columns and the perimeter columns—consisted of a grid of steel “trusses” integrated with a concrete slab; see diagram below). Instead, the NIST investigation showed conclusively that the failure of the inwardly bowed perimeter columns initiated collapse and that the occurrence of this inward bowing required the sagging floors to remain connected to the columns and pull the columns inwards. Thus, the floors did not fail progressively to cause a pancaking phenomenon.

9/11 report director specializes in creating 'public myths'

Dr. Philip D. Zelikow served as the Staff Director of the 9/11 Commission. In this capacity he basically determined who was interviewed, and what made it into The 9/11 Commission Report. His background is relevant to the credibility of the Commission's report.

Prof. Zelikow's area of academic expertise is the creation and maintenance of, in his words, “public myths” or “public presumptions,” which he defines as “beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community."

Pentagon attacked earlier than reported

Barbara Honneger, Senior Military Affairs journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, writes, "if the official story that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at 9:37 were true, Flight 77 could not have been the source of massive damage to the west side of the building a minimum of five minutes earlier at 9:32."

Based on several clocks that stopped at or around 9:32 am, and eyewitness accounts, Ms. Honegger confirms that the "Pentagon was attacked by bomb(s) at or around 9:32 am, possibly followed by an impact from an airborne object significantly smaller than Flight 77, a Boeing 757." Then White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales, during a speech on August 27, 2002, stated: "The Pentagon was attacked at 9:32."

What really happened on September 11?

The 110-story towers of the World Trade Center were obliterated. The Pentagon suffered massive damage. This much is clear. Much else remains a mystery.

The towers could not have collapsed the way the The 9/11 Commission Report tells us, it gives no explanation for the collapse of the 47-story Building 7 of the World Trade Center, the hole in the Pentagon wall appears too small to have been made by a Boeing 757, and apparently Osama Bin Laden is not wanted by the FBI for the events of September 11, 2001.

BYU places '9/11 truth' professor on paid leave

Brigham Young University placed physics professor Steven Jones on paid leave Thursday while it reviews his involvement in the so-called "9/11 truth movement" that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.

The disbelievers

The Washington Post published a long article in which it identifies some of the leaders of the 9/11 truth movement, and some of its critics. It restates previous poll results:

A recent Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll of 1,010 Americans found that 36 percent suspect the U.S. government promoted the attacks or intentionally sat on its hands. Sixteen percent believe explosives brought down the towers. Twelve percent believe a cruise
missile hit the Pentagon.

Distrust percolates more strongly near Ground Zero. A Zogby International poll of New York City residents two years ago found 49.3 percent believed the government "consciously failed to act."

U.S. government rebuts 9/11 sceptics

The U.S. Dept. of State, and the National Institutes of Science and Technology have issued rebuttals of alternative 9/11 theories. The rebuttals "faily miserably" say the folks at Jim Hoffman of 911Research writes that "NIST's new FAQ avoids answering the central charges".
