9/11 does not go away. It is with us on a daily basis. It has been the emotional rationale
for a long list of radical changes in US policy, many of which continue with us even
under the Obama administration:
- a supposed “War
- actual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
future wars against a supposed “axis of evil”
- condoning torture and indefinite detention
without any kind of due process
- scuttling the Geneva conventions
- the sacrifice of civil liberties at home
If 9/11 “changed everything,” as George W. Bush said, then it is extremely important
we “get it right.” What really happened that day? The administration made a
rush to judgement,
immediately destroyed much of the evidence, stamped much of the remaining
evidence “Secret,” and implied that critics were “with the terrorists.”
If all you know is what you have read in the papers or seen on the TV News, you
fully informed, and you are quite possibly misinformed. We believe you have also been
Truth Movement,” inspired initially by families of 9/11 victims, has amassed a
amount of research that casts doubt on the official story line, but many people
never heard this or thought through the implications. The administration and the
media want this issue to go away, so any attempt to discuss or speak out on
is dismissed as a “conspiracy theory.” But keep in mind that
even the official
story of 9/11 is a rather bizarre “conspiracy theory.”

Our most solid evidence for the use of explosives in the destruction of the World Trade Center
Anyone who has presented the evidence that the World Trade
Center was demolished
with explosives has run into people with psychological barriers
to even hearing the information.
Psychology professional Frances Shure has explored
this subject in a series of essays,
originally serialized in the Architects and Engineers
for 9/11 Truth newsletter entitled
Why Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11. (There are 20 parts to the
complete series. A partial series is posted here for

9/11…So What? People want to know how they can respond once they have been made
conscious of the truth
of 9/11. I get that question a lot. Here are my thoughts on that subject.

identifying carbon nanotubes in the lungs of first responders. These are not found associated
with other building fires. The carbon nanotubes were also found in the WTC dust. Production
of carbon nanotubes requires high temperatures in the presence of carbon and a metal catalyst.
These conditions are present in the combustion of nanothermite. Kevin Ryan and
Niels Harritt have shown that combustion of nanothermite actually produces carbon nanotubes.

Analysis of the
Structure of the Buildings at the WTC
Some Misunderstandings Related to WTC Collapse Analysis
by Gregory Szuladzinski, Anthony Szamboti and Richard Johns
(That is a very conservative
title.) This is a disproof of the official explanation for the
collapse of the North
Tower through mechanical analysis. Published in the International Journal
of Protective Structures. Summary: The energy absorbed by the buckling of the columns
would have arrested the collapse within one, or at most two, stories of the onset of collapse.
This paper shows the Bazant papers (claiming once initiated, total collapse was inevitable) to
have fatal flaws based on unrealistic assumptions.
Overview of the WTC Collapse Analysis paper by co-author Tony Szamboti:
The energy situation in the first several stories of the collapse needs to
at by separating the fall through the first story from the collision between
1. Constant acceleration [which we see by direct measurement] shows
that the average
resistive force during the fall through the first story is equal
to that which just barely allows
the initial movement and thus precludes development
of any significant velocity in a natural
fall. Arrest should have occurred at the end
of that one floor drop in a natural collapse.
In fact, this is a serious problem for
the official story since there is no natural way to
generate a significant velocity
in the first story due to heat weakening caused buckling.
2. Using actual
velocity measurements, the kinetic energy available after the measured
one floor drop
is not sufficient to break through the lower floor’s columns. Bazant’s
show continued propagation only by assuming free fall generated
velocity through the
first story, nearly doubling the mass of the upper section,
and underestimating lower
section column strength by about 70%.
3. Even if somehow a significant
velocity could be developed through the fall of
the first story there is no deceleration
during the collision between floors, which is
necessary to generate the dynamic/amplified
load to deform the columns and propagate
through the next story down (which was capable of supporting
several times the static load above it).
Up to this point Bazant has not
been taken to task for the first and second issues, as
earlier critiques had largely concentrated
on the third. Bazant has been given a pass
concerning the velocity developed during
the first story fall to be at least what was
measured, and although I had been complaining
about Bazant’s extreme inflation of
the kinetic energy available and underestimate
of column strength, it hadn’t been
explained well publicly.
Open Letter to Bazant from Tony Szamboti on the errors in his analysis, requesting a response.
ASCE Journals refuse to correct fraudulent paper they published on WTC collapses.
Misrepresentation of the WTC7 Structure
Letter by Attorney William Pepper to the Office of the Inspector General of the US Department
of Commerce, which oversees NIST + A description of misrepresentations by NIST
of the structures that are key to their proposed WTC 7 failure mechanism.
Tony Szamboti and others have been investigating the mechanism NIST asserts caused
the collapse of WTC 7. It has been discovered that in order to make their mechanism
work, they needed to deceptively alter their description of the construction details in
several ways. These differences show up when NIST’s description of their modeling is
compared to recently released drawings of the actual structures. The deception is central
to an effort to challenge the NIST WTC 7 investigation on legal grounds as being evidence
of an intentional coverup. Following the letter, in the same pdf file, is an extensive discussion
of the key omissions. This is an ongoing effort.
Modeling WTC 7
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has sponsored a major project
to model the
structure of WTC 7 as a check on the modeling done by NIST. They contracted
Dr. Leroy Hulsey, a professor of structural engineering at the University of Alaska,
with two collaborators, an engineering post-doc and a PhD candidate, to construct
computer models of the building and test its response to fire and other
stresses that might
account for its observed behavior on 9/11/2001. The entire
process is completely open
and transparent. The amount of detail presented might
seem overwhelming to a casual
audience, but it should provide a basis for confidence
in the process and the results to
anyone with technical competence who wishes to understand
the issues in detail.
The September 2017 “final report” on the fire modeling and the hypothesis that fire caused the collapse.
Later there will be a second “final report” dealing with issues of progressive
Already this project has revealed that the NIST modeling was false
and deceptive in many
respects. This video has been enhanced from the AE911Truth
version in that the slides
are full screen and highlighted with pointers that mimic
the comments in the live presentation.

Incontrovertible / an excellent (British made) full-length, broad scope exploration of 9/11,

with weak evidence and/or speculation. This one is solid. It focuses on WTC 7,
evidence of demolition and insider involvement, but its overall scope is very broad. Beautifully produced.

Tools for Video Analysis
I (DC) started out doing measurements of the 9/11 videos using a tool called Physics Toolkit.
More recently I have been using a much more capable and easy-to-use
tool called Tracker, part of the Open Source Physics project.
Tracker allows you to mark multiple tracks with
an unlimited number of points on a full-screen
video, and it allows you to zoom in
while placing the marks. No more magnifying glass to
the screen! It also has a large
collection of analysis tools. You need a little physics background
to be able to use
it intelligently, but no particular background to use the software.
There may be a bit of a learning curve but if you’re interested, give it a try. Here is a brief

“I’m an artist and I made a piece of artwork called ‘The Split’ that
was inspired in part by one of David Chandler’s early videos.”
On his website Mark writes: “The title ‘The Split’ has a number of meanings here, but chiefly
refers to a split with reality that occurred on that day.” (The blue Ipod screen with the “2”

with an old high school physics text.)
Thank you Mark.
