"Archivists who bought a stash of CDs at a house clearance sale found 2,400 photos of Ground Zero in New York taken following the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

They appear to have been taken by an as yet unidentified construction worker who helped to clear up the wreckage of the World Trade Center towers and surrounding area.

The CDs were in poor condition but the data was ultimately retrievable.

The archivists have uploaded the photos to Flickr.

The digital albums include images of Ground Zero itself taken both at ground level and from above, construction staff at work and the damaged interiors of the blocks surrounding the towers."

Does anyone else see the issue here? Looks like the long spans have short span type connections.

 

Model invalidated if so.

Plasco Building "Collapse"

Not sure how off topic the Plasco building "collapse" is considered here, so apologies in advance if that's indeed the case.
In my opinion, this video however, speaks for itself.

Interested in what others make of it.

Theresa May Rejects Appeal From 9/11 Families To Release Saudi Report

This one isn't going to go away. There are not enough politicians in the UK who are willing to even broach the issue of 911 but there are thankfully some.
The pressure on those who refuse to face the reality will be kept up, and those brave few who are willing to look at the issue will continue to be encouraged to raise the issue.

Good to see that Mr Gold is also keeping abreast of developments.

 

FBI pushed Muslims to plot terrorist attacks: rights report

Washington (AFP) - The FBI encouraged and sometimes even paid Muslims to commit terrorist acts during numerous sting operations after the 9/11 attacks, a human rights group said in a report published Monday.

"Far from protecting Americans, including American Muslims, from the threat of terrorism, the policies documented in this report have diverted law enforcement from pursuing real threats," said the report by Human Rights Watch.
