Journal of 9/11 Studies Article: NIST and DR. Bazant - a Simultaneous Failure

The NIST enquiry into the destruction of the WTC towers purported to be an examination of the physical evidence. The final report includes commentary upon much of the physical evidence available from this examination but concentrates upon the time period prior to the onset of the collapse. The report does not go into much detail of the period of the collapse itself but instead relies upon the theoretical work of Dr. Bazant, to argue that once collapse was initiated then total collapse was inevitable.


Dr. Bazant has stated in his analysis, that his energy ratio would be increased in the event of early failure of the column end connections. This is correct and examination of the debris pile with specific regard for the numbered and identifiable columns from the area in and around the aircraft impact area could have given more precise information from a physical rather than a theoretical source.

Loose Change Press Release: Stop Threatening Free Speech, Release Date for Final Cut

A Statement From Louder Than Words and MercuryMedia

We write to you as members of ‘Patriots Question 9/11’ and the producers of Loose Change 2 and Loose Change Final Cut with a message to fellow ‘truthers’ and interested media entities, that we will never submit to the demonic forces that seek to silence us.

Over the last few weeks a number of ‘newsworthy’ individuals and organizations connected with Loose Change and the 9/11 truth movement have been subjected to a campaign of vicious intimidation. The intimidators include presenters on Rupert Murdoch’s Fox, ‘Fair and Balanced’ News, disgraced former US senate majority leader Tom ‘Hot Tub’ Delay, Michele ‘put every Muslim in a concentration camp’ Malkin and Nick ‘Virgin, I promise you PR poison’ Rizutto.

Their targets: Mark Cuban’s 29/29 entertainment group and his NBA team the Dallas Mavericks; Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic; actor Charlie Sheen; and talk-show host Rosie O’Donnell. Their alleged crime is associating themselves or their companies with Loose Change and suggesting that people should be free to decide for themselves about 9/11 truth.

We wholeheartedly condemn the actions of the disgraceful rabble that are attacking our supporters, and put them on notice of our continued resolve to expose the biggest hoax in history.

NIST and the Computer Models

NIST and the Computer Models

“World Trade Center disaster investigators [at NIST] are refusing to show computer visualizations of the collapse of the Twin Towers despite calls from leading structural and fire engineers, NCE has learned. Visualisations of collapse mechanisms are routinely used to validate the type of finite element analysis model used by the [NIST] investigators.” Parker, Dave. "WTC investigators resist call for collapse visualisation," New Civil Engineer, October 6, 2005.

“The Investigation Team then defined three cases for each building by combining the middle, less severe, and more severe values of the influential variables. Upon a preliminary examination of the middle cases, it became clear that the towers would likely remain standing. The less severe cases were discarded after the aircraft impact results were compared to observed events. The middle cases… were discarded after the structural response analysis of major subsystems were compared to observed events.” NIST, 2005, p. 142; emphasis added.

Steven Jones Answers Questions About His Research In a Reply to 'Screw Loose Change'

[Responses by Dr. Jones in Bold]

Dear Dr. Jones:

In a recent letter you criticized me, and Mark Roberts, for failing to notify you about questions that we had regarding your misrepresentation of a photograph of firefighters at Ground Zero searching for their fallen comrades with a flashlight. In this you expressed the hope that we would contact you in the future regarding such issues. While it is true that I had failed to contact you directly, although I am not sure how you missed this issue since it was publicized throughout the 9/11 conspiracy theory community, I had in fact contacted you on concerns I had about your misrepresentations of fact regarding other 9/11 issues previousy, but you failed to respond. Not being one who likes writing e-mails for the purpose of being ignored, I stopped trying.

The World Trade Center Building Designers: Claims strongly implicate that the Towers should have remained standing on 9/11

The World Trade Center Building Designers: Claims strongly implicate that the Towers should have remained standing on 9/11[1]

By Arabesque[2]

The World Trade Center (WTC) Towers were the largest buildings ever conceived in 1960.[3] This meant that there was a considerable amount of planning:

The structural analysis carried out by the firm of Worthington, Skilling, Helle & Jackson is the most complete and detailed of any ever made for any building structure. The preliminary calculations alone cover 1, 200 pages and involve over 100 detailed drawings… The building as designed is sixteen times stiffer than a conventional structure. The design concept is so sound that the structural engineer has been able to be ultra-conservative in his design without adversely affecting the economics of the structure.[4]

Retired Physicist Claims 9/11 Attack was Really Controlled Demolition

Retired physicist claims 9/11 attack was really controlled demolition

Ex-BYU professor bases theory on examination of dust samples

By Philip Jankowski

Stephen E. Jones, a retired physicist from Brigham Young University, announced his findings Saturday that imply a controlled demolition as the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, instead of the impact from the two airplanes.

His findings were announced during the Project for the New American Citizen's two day event "Rebuilding America's Senses: Exposing False-Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11."

PNAC- 4/14/07- NEW 9/11 EVIDENCE

Steven Jones discusses the NIST report, thermite, and his new analysis of “iron rich spheres” found in dust samples taken from an apartment across the street from Ground Zero. This analysis provides additional “smoking gun” evidence that thermite was used in the destruction of the WTC towers. It is noteworthy that these dust samples were flown into this apartment during the destruction of the WTC towers.

Bush Almost Blows Himself Up (in an uncontrolled demolition)

Not for nothing, President Bush and Dick Cheney have to despise alternative energy. They made (and continue to make) fortunes from oil and must see this as a direct threat to their livelihoods. And now that a hybrid almost killed the President, it must make it even worse.

9/11 and the Pentagon Attack: What Eyewitnesses Described

9/11 and the Pentagon Attack: What Eyewitnesses Described

An Analytical Study

By Arabesque

This is just one portion of my research into the Pentagon attack.

I have also assembled the largest collection of Pentagon testimony available on the internet. The rest of my research will involve the flight path of the plane based on the testimony, a statistical analysis, and a discussion of some of the anomalies (there are almost none). I will discuss all of the anomalies not listed here as I continue my research. If it is not included on here, it does not occur more than 5 times in the testimony. I welcome any (legitimate) criticisms and feedback. Again, this is a preliminary version.

I also welcome additional testimony for my research. The testimony must be from or near 9/11. Preferably within 6 months at the most. I will not include testimony that comes from several years after the attack because it is less reliable.

Here is my preliminary analysis.

Evidence for Involvement of a Third Jet in the WTC Attacks

Evaporates Under Scrutiny

by Jim Hoffman

Version 1.1 - 2007-03-22

The article "The Flying Elephant: Evidence for Involvement of a Third Jet in the WTC Attacks" was published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies ( The premise of the article is that two videos and a photograph show a jetliner "orbiting in close proximity to the towers for several minutes while the North Tower burned and the South Tower was struck." After asserting, without any analysis, that jetliners shown in these visual records were close to the Twin Towers, the article provides several items to support its case that there was a suspicious third jet circling the World Trade Center prior to the South Tower crash.

The Pentagon Controversy: Plane Versus No Plane

The Pentagon Controversy: Plane Versus No Plane

Two theories—same conclusion: 9/11 was an inside job

An examination of the Pentagon Controversy and the core issues that must be resolved

9/11 Pentagon theories fall into two main categories:

#1. A plane hit the Pentagon

#2. A plane did not hit the Pentagon

If a plane did not hit the Pentagon it proves an inside job. If a plane did hit the Pentagon it also proves an inside job because no plane should have hit the Pentagon.
