Grab Bag and Open Thread
There have been a bunch of links sent in in the last week that haven't been posted, here is a quick grab bag. If you have something to add feel free to post it in the comments.
911truthseekers.org is hosting an interview with Professor James Fetzer, another member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which was recorded at a local Utah radio station on the same day as the recent Jones presentation. You can download the interview from their site here.
The House Armed Services Committee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, February 15 about the controversial Able Danger data-mining program, according to informed Congressional sources.
After intense staff negotiations, it was finally decided that a portion of the Armed Services Committee hearing will be open, but that subsequent discussion of classified aspects of the Able Danger program will move into a closed session.
New Finnish WTC7 Site - 11syyskuu:
I have just translated into English my updated WTC 7 page, which contains e.g. detailed measurements about the collapse speed of the building. The measurements confirm the conclusion in "9-11 Eyewitness" that WTC 7 collapsed the first 100 meters virtually without structural resistance. See, especially, the section entitled "Collapse speed":
The page has a link to another WTC 7 article, with lots of detailed calculations, by a Finnish Doctor of Engineering and accident researcher:
Post 9/11 Steel-Bashing Called Unfounded and Unfair
What an odd twist, the Madrid fire is being used to argue that concrete buildings are stronger than steel superstructures.. perhaps this will make steel structure producers stand up and point out the inconsistancies with the collapses on 9/11?
Structural engineers say alliance claims are not only without merit, they are out of bounds. "Their assertion that concrete structures are safer than steel is based not on facts but on their greed to build concrete structures...," says Clifford Schwinger, quality assurance manager with Cagley Harman & Associates Inc., King of Prussia, Pa. "That they are trying to profit from the 9/11 tragedy by claiming concrete construction is safer is worse than obscene."
The straw that broke the camel's back for AISC was the alliance's marketing blitz after a recent highrise fire in Madrid. The campaign included a full-page magazine ad. It began: "A demonstration of cast-in-place reinforced concrete over steel construction was the recent fire at Madrid's Windsor Tower."

Music video download from a band named The Who Boys. It is a "mash-up" music project of Led Zeppelin's "The Immigrant Song" vs "The Children's Marching Song" featuring video clips about 9/11, Iraq, Iran, etc.
