Diane Albritton called the CIA for suspicious behaviour of 9/11 hijacker Waleed Alshehri, CIA took no action

Diane Albritton called the CIA for suspicious behaviour of 9/11 hijacker Waleed Alshehri but the CIA took no action.

"Diane Albritton was so concerned with what was happening inside the home on 502 Orange street, she called the CIA. Why was she suspicious?.- The odd coming and goings, different rental cars, the odd-looking people that came and went."

Lt. Robert Madeiros of the Arlington Police describes seeing no pieces of any plane

Lt. Robert Madeiros of the Arlington Police was on the scene of the Pentagon within minutes after the incident on 9/11. In this press conference on 9/13 he describes not seeing any pieces of any plane.

"I couldn't believe what happened. And they said it was a plane but i didn't see any pieces of any plane. I couldn't believe that a plane hit the building".

5th, 6th and 7th alleged hijhacking attempts on 9/11 and 9/13, what happened to the suspects?

Browsing through the 9/11 archive i found some very interesting clips. They describe incidents on 9/11 and 9/13 with regards to alleged foiled hijacking attempts. The latest report speaks of four men and a woman and five men who tried to board airplanes at JFK and LaGuardia on 9/13 with fake ID's, knives and pilot certificates who were arrested. Also there's a report about a possible 5th group of hijackers on United Flight 23 on 9/11 itself.

Why did these stories disappear, and what happened to the suspects. That's what i would like to know.

I did not have time yet to check all the streaming footage at the 9/11 archive (this is just from ABC and NBC), so there might still be more info out there:

NIST publishes supplement of Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

NIST has released a supplement to there FAQ's today:

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions - Supplement (December 14, 2007)

Since the release of the Final Report on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers in October 2005, NIST has received many questions from interested readers curious about NIST’s findings and the technical basis for them. The complexity of the investigation and the length of the final report (including all of the supporting volumes) have made understanding of the investigation a challenge for many interested readers. In response, NIST has prepared simplified answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Rare WTC7 footage; fires, implosion and rubble pile

Most of these (but not all) have been posted by me and others in the last months. However, the research community doesn't seem to pick up on them (please point them to this blog). I still read claims, for instance, that the fires did not cause windows to break (it did). The long straight gash in WTC7 is not discussed on any website about WTC7 (except for debunking sites). The Steve Spak footage which shows the south side of WTC7 has hardly been discussed at all.

Links are included to high quality versions of the footage for those who want to use it in a film/documentary/presentation. All footage (except Spak's) can be verified in the 9/11 TV archive:

Top down demolition

One of the arguments that debunkers like to repeat over and over is that controlled demolitions always start from the bottom of a building. I guess this means that the video below does not show a controlled demolition.

William Rodriguez on Dutch TV

They gave him a pretty fair coverage. Ratings show that it was watched by 690.000 people. It was shot in July, during Williams visit to Amsterdam for the Last Man Out tour.


Bin Laden: we got him!

This shows how easy it is to fake an Osama video.
