William Rodriguez Featured in Devon Newspaper and Interviewed on BBC Bristol

Hero of 9/11 Won't Stop Speaking Out Against Bush - thisisdevon.co.uk

One minute he was going about his business, the next he was looking at a vision from the depths of hell. Still reeling from a blast which rocked the World Trade Center, William Rodriguez could hardly believe what he was seeing."A man came running into the office shouting 'explosion, explosion!'" Mr Rodriguez soon saw a third of his body had been badly burnt by the blast. "When I realised, I started screaming. I looked at his face and it was missing parts."

It was the start of a day that transformed Mr Rodriguez from a maintenance man to the hero of 9/11. He ran back into the crumbling tower three times, and helped save hundreds of people.
For Mr Rodriguez, a native of Puerto Rico, swears his ordeal began before the first plane hit the Twin Towers. He claims that the White House failed to act, and accuses the government of being involved in "sponsored terrorism" in a bid to find a motive to invade Iraq. He brought his argument to a Westcountry audience on Wednesday, when he spoke in Torquay as part of the Global Truth movement.
It was while he was in basements of the North Tower that Mr Rodriguez says he felt an explosion from below. "It was so hard that it shook the foundations of the building and the walls cracked," he said. "The ceiling fell on top of us."

Mr Rodriguez, 45, had worked in the building for 20 years, and survived the 1993 bomb blast. As the sprinkler system came on, he was mentally transported back. It was only then that he claims he heard the sound of the first plane hitting the tower, at 8.46am. "It came from far away - all the way at the top of the building," he said.
The final straw came when he was asked to give a public address on why Iraq should be invaded. "I said no - 9/11 was nothing to do with Iraq. I helped organise the families, and we voted against the President using us for his political motive. That's when the thrust changed, and the invasion suddenly became about weapons of mass destruction."
But Mr Rodriguez continues to speak out. Once a prominent magician, he said: "The 9/11 attacks are just an illusion. It never happened in the way they say. It's all manufactured to give the impression that it happened like that."

Congratulations Willie...

You're doing phenomenal work. Absolutely phenomenal.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."

You're a hero...

There's really no other way to say it.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."

Non stop action is the only

Non stop action is the only way we will have victory. We should all follow William Rodriguez's lead and turn it up a notch or two. Can you feel it?


Willie is an inspiration.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."

Random Acts of Nine Eleven Kindness.

Amen Greenback.

Raw Story would like to hear

Raw Story would like to hear your comments about the new pentagon video released which shows nothing.


You are a hero, Willie

It pisses Me off that the MSM does not mention you when they do their specials on 9/11, such as the History Channel and the Discovery Channel. They fail to mention your story and nothing about explosions is even mentioned in either special.
I know better, what you did that day many people owe their lives to you and I could only hope that your bravery would get more known as an example of what true heroes do.

William Rodriguez - You are a great man

Thanks for ALL you are doing for 9/11 Truth.

Good luck and best wishes

ive said it probably

ive said it probably literally hundreds of times before but its forever worth saying. William Rodriquez is a true hero. not just for what he did on 9/11 but for what he continues to do. thank you William! (and if your there William, can i ask who exactly it was that asked you to vouche for an invasion of Iraq? thats interesting, i hadnt heard that before)

offtopic: New explosions from video

Hello could you please confirm that there are explosions in the first tower while the second is being hit in this video ( cue to 2:20 and 2:27)


At 2:25 into the clip.....

yes, very interesting? two trails of black smoke streaming out two windows of the same floor separated by ~ 10 window spaces. this is followed by two small explosive puffs from same windows after which the smoke trails abruptly end. then, right as the other tower is in collapse, two small explosive puffs out of two windows located two or three floors directly below the first small explosions. the locations, symmetry and timing are note worthy. large explosive collapse in neighboring tower to cover-up these small well-placed explosive charges in adjacent tower?


i referred to the other tower as being 'in collapse', but i think i should've written 'the other tower being struck by plane'

there must be an explaination

"that was where the smoker lounges were.... and when the first tower was hit... everyone got very anxious and went there for a smoke..... the place was packed.

and when the second plane hit.... everyone exhaled.

try again.... you call that evidence?" - Anonymous

that looked pretty feaking clear to me!!!

The Explosions Are Clear

At precisely 2:21 and then again at 2:27 into the video you'll see sets of explosions. The first set is clear as day and second set occurs as the fireball blows by but you can still see it through the flames. Look to the left side of the tower probably fifteen to twenty stories from the top. Look for black plumes pouring out and watch as they puff out explosively. It seems they were timed with the second plane's impact serving as distraction. Man, these creeps must be freaking out with all the evidence which has piled up. I personally believe there is enough hard evidence supporting the demolition that we should move our focus to other things which will help Congress open an impeachment hearing, such as what the Administration new beforehand. I think it is important to remember the publicized reports of the Air Force One being threatened as Cheney told Bush not to return to DC directly and subsequently had Bush flying all over the country on 911. I'd also like to hear more about the phone call Putin had with Bush on the morning of 911 before the attacks.


Congratulations to both William Rodriquez and to 911Blogger for providing us with the truth when every other door seems to be closed to it. And I totally agree with Greenback about cranking it up a notch. Amen. It is sad to think that no one has the time or desire to listen to William Rodriquez or look into what he is saying. What is wrong with this world. It is far stranger than I thought it was. The resistance is amazing. I'm hoping we can get one or two lawmakers to again investigate this stuff come January etc when the Democrats take over the Committees. Anyway. GO WILLIE and thanks for speaking up.


What Rodriquez ACTUALLY said

William Rodriguez worked on the basement level of the north tower and was in the building when the first plane struck his building.

\"We heard a loud rumble, then all of a sudden we heard another rumble like someone moving a whole lot of furniture,\" Rodriguez said. \"And then the elevator opened and a man came into our office and all of his skin was off.\"

Rodriguez, who had keys to the elevators, began climbing the upper levels of the tower with a police officer to help trapped people. He saw firefighters weighted with rescue equipment catching their breath on the 39th floor.


Omission, the most powerful form of lying

"The most powerful form of lie is the omission, and it is the duty of the historian to make sure that those ties do not creep into the history books." George Orwell

Yes he said what you quoted, but you are omitting everything else he said. As Orwell says, you are lying. You are trying to create your own reality by ignoring 99% of the facts.

Resorting to taking a small portion of the facts to claim they represent the whole truth is a fraud.

It is the duty of everyone to see all of Rodriquez’s testimony. This man was a hero on 9/11, and should be an inspiration to us all to continue to fight for the truth.

To say he is doing this for money is an insult. What about the billions of dollars being spent on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars? I wonder who gets rich off of that. What about the billions of dollars taken from Iraqi oil? What about the millions of dollars that the CIA made off of insider trading by betting on the exact airlines that would be targeted on 9/11? What about Silversteen's record insurance payout? And you have the nerve to accuse him of making money off of 9/11?

Ironically, you are probably being paid to write this garbage. Rodriguez is only saying what hundreds of others have said. But you hide behind your anonymous computer screen and attack someone who risked his life to save others, barely escaping with his life.

This is the textbook definition of a coward.

“We're an empire now, and when we act we create our own reality."

don't forget the untold

don't forget the untold Billions under the WTC complex that is missing (in gold) and probably a fair percentage of the 2.3 Trillion missing from the DoD. 

Willie, Way to go!!! Show


Way to go!!! Show 'em how a REAL American behaves.

I've always believed there comes a point in everyone's life where all of their unlikely experiences, jobs, and talents become equally important to a vital task. When I heard you say that you had worked onstage in a magician's act, I said "That's it!" That's where you get the poise and fabulous stage presence that brings so much sparkle and oomph to your interviews and presentations.

I'd watch you read the phone book. You are the bee's knees!

Great job!

Willie is a great guy...even if you do believe the official nutjob story of the bin laden boogeyman.
How could anyone not like this guy?
Him being a 9/11 hero certainly helps the movement, as well.

Willie's Torch.

We need to take Willie's Torch and pass it along to the colleges on Chris Matthew's stupid (but available) College Tour he does. He lets students participate and ask the guests questions. Tom Brokaw was at Fordam today and next Tuesday is the next one. Boy would it be great to go undercover and slip in a hard hitting 911 question on live TV. I'm sure they would kick you out if you have a banner and draw a lot of attention, but a well placed confident question might be able to get in. Hopefullness and Optimism once again, but there are so few opportunities available it seems.

Just a thought.

Thanks William

Thanks William you are hope itself. I was also trying to find his website does anyone have a link to it???

again and again you post this

Though I notice you no longer say "until he saw green money", which to me seems not just ridiculous (who's bribing him, do you think?) but also possibly racist, as in AMERICAN DOLLARS (as opposed to other countries' usually more colorful currency). Never mind that he's Puerto Rican (like RT) and therefore an American citizen and very accustomed to seeing green money (as that is what Puerto Rico uses, as the colony of the US that it is.)

But hey, what can you do when an honest to goodness hero points out the truth, except to accuse him of taking bribes because he happens to be working class and latino.

On the subject of what he said to CNN, it does not contradict what he said to everyone else. If CNN decides to print just that part of what he said, what of it?

Note the headline...speaking

Note the headline...speaking out against "Bush" not "for the truth" or anything else.

I thought that was

I thought that was unfortunate as well. One of my pet peeves is the assumption that all truth issues lead to the Chimp in Charge.

However, that headline is probably British editorializing; aside from the neo-nazis in power, the Brits are happy to smear Bush with any caca at hand. They loathe him.

"One of my pet peeves is the

"One of my pet peeves is the assumption that all truth issues lead to the Chimp in Charge."

Indeed. This is an oft-repeated allegation. It’s a silly straw-man which is why the press loves it. The Chimp could no more "organize" 911 than say something semi-intelligent, which is to say, he couldn’t. It's a non-starter.

The chimp is a puppet. Granted, he pulls a certain number of strings, but he is merely a "go-between". He may very well have endorsed the op but he certainly didn't play any roll in its execution. The first rule of "intelligence" is the "contracting out" of dirty deeds to other entities. Even if he played a part, he didn't play a part. See the logic?

These are not complicated ideas, yet most 911 spokespersons fail to explain them. Again, no gov official in his right mind would do something himself which he could confer unto other, "lesser" beings.

In light of these silly straw men arguments that "Bush planted the bombs!", 911 seems to me a tremendous way of explaining to people how states actually function. Without absolving politicians and bureaucrats of their essential culpability, people have to understand that they are not the only players.

It's a symbiotic relationship, like lizard and slime. Power lies not only with the state but with the massive concentrated capital rotting away in the accounts of corporate and banking elites, which is then "personified" by cretins like Bush. The more concentrated the capital, the more difficult it is to distinguish between these two entities. Eventually you have fascism: the merger of state and corporate power.

The problem is that people associate “fascism” with the burning of books. No, elites learn like the rest of us. Better to saturate the mind with mountains of useless information that burn books. Better to pimp Britney Spears than kill Cindy Sheehan. It’s devolution, see? Friendly Fascism. Gitmo is a mind control experiment, not just for its inhabitants, but for you. They want you to know that they’re willing to torture. They want you to know that the NSA is watching you. Why censor when people will self-censor?

Why kill when you will kill yourself?

Thanks for fleshing it out,

Thanks for fleshing it out, Danse. You're right -- most people think of a fascist leader as being cunning and Machiavelian, which is cancelled out by a mental image of Chucklenuts.

He's actually more useful to the elites, because he's ignorant, cowardly, incurious, and easily distracted. As long as they rear him as a stubborn preschooler, they can create his reality and manipulate his responses, all the while convincing him that he's the one in control.

When I'm taking on a newbie I always say right off the bat that Bush was most likely out of the loop on 9/11, and I don't know what he knows at this point, but he knows enough to recite the cover up lines.

We're all being psyopped. I need a new literary allusion or cultural reference to describe our situation because the standard ones have been used so often they're losing their strength.

I've seen videos of 2

I've seen videos of 2 William Rodriguez presentations, and in neither one
did he mention a guy missing pieces of his face. Why did he leave that
out before?

he did in the recent

he did in the recent conference in england (audio)


Yes. He has. I've personally heard him mention the bits of his face missing and gesturing with his hands.
I've seen so many videos in last 4 years I couldn't tell you which one it was. But he said it I'm sure of it.

the man has a name!

Felipe David is the name of the man who was burned by the explosion in the basement. He is not a figment of Willie's imagination, as anyone who has seen pics and video of him in recovery with bandages around his face can attest to. Maybe we should mention him by name, that way he's not just the "guy with the pieces missing from his face..." after all, he's a VERY important victim and survivor.

Video of William Rodriguez in London

Two short clips from the Dec. 1st talk:


OT: more alt-media

OT: more alt-media gatekeeping. turns out Truthers are to blame to the "decline of the American left"...


"Where was the American left in the campaign that ended in recapture of both houses of Congress by the Democrats on November 7, 2006? Was it in the streets, fomenting opposition to the war in Iraq? Not at all. The antiwar movement has been inert for months. When I was asked to give the keynote speech at a rare antiwar rally in my local town of Eureka, northern California, in early October, three of my five fellow orators didn't deign to mention the war at all. Instead they numbed the audience and sharply diminished its size with interminable dissections of the 9/11/2001 attacks on the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. Their aim? To argue that the attacks were an 'inside job', organized by Bush and Cheney or (a frequent variation on the theme) darker powers, for whom Bush and Cheney are the mere errand boys."

Blaming Bush for 911!

No disrespect to Mr. Rodriguez, but "speaking out against Bush" is just what the Zionist media wants to hear. Since, for one, the cat is out of the bag, this deflects blame from the probable architects of the attacks, and also serves to undermine confidence in the US political system (which is the wider agenda, conscious or not, of the Zionist media: see Eric Hufschmid's site regarding South Park; see Kevin MacDonald's book, The Culture of Critique.


Prior knowledge of 9/11 attacks overheard in Hebrew

If the Muckraker "FBI admits no evidence on Bin Laden" .....

Are you dumb?

"No disrespect to Mr. Rodriguez, but "speaking out against Bush" is just what the Zionist media wants to hear."

Bush is a stooge, a simple dumbass that is true. But he is and was the president, the one responsible no matter what.

If you want to blame the Zionists you have to go through Bush.

Are you with me here? First to Bush, then to the zionists... if you have the evidence.

PS: Rodriguez is a true hero.

First to Bush, then to the zionists.. ?

So... every crime in America has to be blamed on Bush first?

Why not first to Silverstein (a Zionist) then to Bush, if you have the evidence. Right now I see Bush as being complicit in the coverup, not the crime itself. What part of this crime do you see him having masterminded?

I really don't understand why some people are so averse to holding Silverstein to account when regardless of what else happened that day, the biggest loss of life occured when the buildings he owned were demolished on top of living people.

What on earth did Bush have to do with that?

"What part of this crime do

"What part of this crime do you see him having masterminded?"

BushJr masterminded nothing. Did I not say that Bush was a dumbass stooge? That was and is exactly his role.

Still, a dumbass or not. He was and is the president, and if you want to blame the zionists or the marsians you have to go through the one responible, that is the president of the US of A.

He is the guilty one. So there was other forces behind him? If you want an answer to that one. Bust the hoax. Get Bush to some kind of trial, then see what answers that might come up.

Why not "get Silverstein to some kind of trial"?

It would be easier and because he is not the president he would not be able to claim executive privilege or other such nonsense in his defense. And the fact remains that he is the most likely suspect, being the owner and financial beneficiary of the obvious case of arson and fraud.

Then we can ask of everyone else, what did they know and when did they know it, then what did they do about it and when did tehy do it.

Making Bush the fall guy is one of the last hopes of the perps, especially what with Nancy "Aipac Now and Forever" Pelosi guaranteeing no impeachment.

They think they have all their bases covered. Bush is nothing. I won't bite on that bait.

9-11: Controlling the Message
Christopher Bollyn
19 May 2006


....Having known Rodriguez for a year and having spent many hours with him, this reporter has learned a great deal about the 9-11 attack from his personal observations, most of which he does not speak about publicly. On a recent trip to Venezuela, Rodriguez told American Free Press that he has been advised not to talk about critical evidence that he has personal knowledge of.

"I can't talk about the Israeli involvement because it would offend the Jewish families," Rodriguez said, referring to the relatives of Jewish victims. Yet, Rodriguez has important information about the involvement of Israeli intelligence agents in the attacks.

For example, he has personal knowledge that Israeli Mossad agents, posing as employees of a moving company in New Jersey, met regularly with some of the Arab terror suspects at a video store a block from his home in Jersey City during the year prior to the attacks.

In the afternoon of 9-11, when five Israeli "movers" were arrested in New Jersey after having been observed videotaping and celebrating the attacks on the twin towers, the police sergeant was told not to mention the fact that the men were Israelis, Rodriguez told AFP. Arab clothing had been found in their vehicle, he said.

After investigating the five Israelis, the FBI concluded that they had been "conducting a Mossad surveillance mission and that their employer, Urban Moving Systems of Weehawken, N.J., served as a front," wrote Marc Perelman of The Forward, a leading New York-based Jewish newspaper, in March 2002, citing an un-named "former high-ranking American intelligence official."

Keep Going Mr. Rodriguez

This man is a true hero. I think we should learn from his words and story. Would Mr Rodriguez story spark strong outrage as did Kevin Barrett did on CNN or Fox with H&C. Nope the news networks are afraid to touch such a story from Mr Rodriguez. The News Networks cant debunk an eyewitness like Mr.Rodriguez. Would he be a conspiracy nut. The only people that are outrage are the real terrorist. The outrage maybe strong with only the news networks. But in a court of law nothing is more stronger then a eyewitness. Mr Rodriguez the U.S news networks are afraid of your story. That is why they dont touch your powerful story it will open the eyes and minds of the american people. The american people should be outrage from all the lies. And the Neo-Cons should be very afraid of We The People. It is a free thinking society.

For saying this?

\\\"We heard a loud rumble, then all of a sudden we heard another rumble like someone moving a whole lot of furniture,\\\" Rodriguez said. \\\"And then the elevator opened and a man came into our office and all of his skin was off.\\\"


London Presentation

I went to see William give a presentation in London last week. A very impressive guy. He basically is saying he doesn't care what the administration's official story is, he knows in his heart what he witnessed that day and he will never stop from spreading the truth. A true hero!

Go Willie R Go

Keep up the good work William!
