New Article on William Rodriguez, 9/11 Hero
William Rodriguez heard a series of explosions rock the lower levels of the WTC minutes before the north tower came crashing down, establishing further evidence the building collapsed from a controlled demolition not burning jet fuel like the government contends.
His eye-witness account adds a "personal and human touch" to the growing number of critics of the official government story, which have included well-known scientists, engineers, professors and even a Labor Department economist from President Bush's first administration.
Rodriguez, a maintenance worker on duty the morning of 9/11 and one of the last to leave the building, is also the lead plaintiff in a federal RICO lawsuit filed against Bush and others, alleging conspiracy to commit murder and other crimes in the WTC deaths of more that 3,000.
The case, filed last November in a Philadelphia federal district court, recently was moved to New York in a change of venue after a government's motion to dismiss was overruled, allowing legal discovery to continue.
Rodriguez's attorney, Phil Berg of Philadelphia, said his client doesn't know all the answers behind the 9/11 government conspiracy, but is prepared to testify he heard strange explosions far below the jetliner's point of impact, indicating a controlled demolition.
Besides the explosions, Rodriguez also has provided testimony to the 9/11 Commission that he accidentally stumbled across one of the supposed 19 Arab hijackers inside the WTC several months before 9/11.
