National Geographic Channel on 9/11: Manipulation vs. Objectivity

AE911Truth plans to release a longer response than this one as soon as resources permit. In the meantime, readers are encouraged to examine these other recently published pieces:

Letter to AIA President from Richard Gage, AIA

Response to July 1, 2009 Letter “Decline of request to meet with the Board"

[Ed: Copy of original letter dated July 20, 2009]

TO:
Mr. Marvin J. Malecha, FAIA, President
American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Dear Mr. Malecha,

It is with great regret that I read in your letter the decline of our request to meet with you and the AIA Board. We wrote to you that we now have over 700 architects and engineers at AE911Truth calling for a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. Now, as a result of our latest successful exhibit booth and class at the Washington DC conference last week we have over 45 AIA members signed on. At what point will you take us seriously? Perhaps when our rapidly growing numbers reach 1,000?

You note that “We believe that the NIST investigation and the resulting NIST report are valid and credible.” But how can they possibly be valid and credible when:

1. NIST’s November 2008 Final WTC 7 Investigative Report has many fatal flaws:

Letter to NIST from Richard Gage, AIA

Request for meeting regarding NIST Reports - WTC7 and Twin Towers

[Ed: Copy of original letter dated July 20, 2009]

TO: Dr. Shyam Sunder, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Dear Dr. Sunder,

We have heard you state publicly after the WTC 7 press conference that it "would not be productive" for you to meet with the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. This is quite disappointing – as we now have over 700 architects and engineers at AE911Truth calling for a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. At what point will you take us seriously? Perhaps when our rapidly growing numbers reach 1,000 A/E's?

Here are our talking points:

1. The NIST November 2008 Final WTC 7 Investigative Report has many fatal flaws:

FEMA photographer Kurt Sonnenfeld (recently interviewed by Voltairenet) has released a new set of World Trade Center disaster site images. Some were previously available, but the majority are new and high quality.

AE911Truth and FF911Truth Light up Seattle Together

It was the best turnout ever for the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth! Perhaps because we spoke in tandem with the new hard-hitting Fire Fighters for 9/11 Truth? The hard working dedicated 9/11 Truth folks in Seattle completely went to town on marketing and brought in a sea of 580 faces! The Universities were thoroughly canvassed – including the last minute faculty box stuffing at the Architecture Dept at the University of WA.

29 Engineers: Only Explosives Can Explain 9/11 World Trade Center Destruction

29 Structural & Civil Engineers Cite Evidence for Controlled Explosive Demolition in Collapses of All 3 WTC High-Rises on 9/11

More than 700 architects and engineers have joined call for new investigation.

For Some, the Doubts Began Early

“Something is wrong with this picture,” thought Nathan Lomba, as he watched replays of the Twin Tower collapses on television on September 11, 2001. A licensed structural engineer trained in buildings’ responses to stress, Lomba saw more on the screen than you or I. He puzzled, “How did the structures collapse in near-symmetrical fashion when the damage was clearly not symmetrical?”

Lomba was hardly alone in his discomfort. Most structural engineers were surprised when the towers fell. They mainly kept their misgivings to themselves, though, as Scientific American and the Journal of Engineering Mechanics, BBC, the History Channel and government agencies such as FEMA and NIST offered varying and often imaginative theories to explain how fires brought the towers down.

AE911Truth Making History in San Francisco

24,000 Architects at SF AIA Convention Come Face to Face With 9/11 Truth

Watch live and get all the details at: http://www.ae911truth.org/events/aia-convention/

AE911Truth’s unprecedented debut at the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2009 National Convention and Design Exposition is coming right up. Obtaining a booth at this year’s convention at San Francisco’s Moscone Center marks a significant accomplishment for us.

During the convention, from April 30 to May 2, we will have the opportunity to inform an anticipated 24,000 architects about long-evaded truths regarding the destruction of the 3 World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11.

Amid hundreds of exhibitions by manufacturers of buildings, tiles, and window coverings, our 10’x10’ booth, with two large LCD screens showing the dramatic demolitions of the WTC Twin Towers and Building 7, will stand out dramatically – especially with the backdrop of our 7 professionally designed banners depicting the rest of the evidence and our mission. Convinced architects will be able to sign on the spot our petition calling for a new investigation. We will be giving away our latest brochures, our latest DVD, and our evidence cards.

Architects, please join us in encouraging the AIA board members in your local and state chapters and your colleagues to stop by our booth, review the evidence, and come to the presentation on Saturday. With the addition of several personal invitations to visit our booth at the SF AIA convention, coming from people such as yourself, these AIA leaders and colleagues may recognize this as a broader movement, and something of which they should become informed.

Live 2 hour Multi-media Presentation by Richard Gage, AIA

When? On May 2nd, at 4 pm
Where? At Westin Market Street Hotel, 50 3rd St., San Francisco

We hope to fill the seats at the 4 pm Saturday May 2nd AE911Truth multimedia presentation with 200 architects at the Westin Market Street Hotel in SF – just 2 blocks away from the convention.

Over 640 professional architects and engineers are now calling for a new investigation.
