9/11 Planes Flew Directly into
Secure Computer Rooms in Both Towers
by Christopher Bollyn
11 January 2007

9/11 remains an unsolved crime of terrorism. Many people who worked at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon have information, which can help solve this crime and find the parties responsible for killing thousands of innocent people.
This article, for example, is the result of information provided by one such anonymous person.

To solve this crime, it is crucial that the people who have information come forward and share that information. Together, we can solve this heinous crime and make this world a better place.


The two airplanes that struck the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11 flew directly into secure computer rooms in both buildings. Is that simply a coincidence or were the computer rooms equipped to play a role in the crime?

Were there homing devices, for example, in these rooms that guided the planes to their targets? Were there pre-placed explosives or Thermite on these floors to destroy the evidence and assist with the collapses?

Let's look at the evidence.

The extreme weght of battery arrays requires floors be reinforced, which in turn provides an excuse for mysterious construction workers to enter and leave the area. But who would think to verify that all of the batteries truly are batteries?

And who would think of verifying that all of the computers are truly under the control of the people they are supposed to work for?

"At 8:46:30 a.m., five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 11 (AA 11) with 11 crew and 76 passengers into the north face of WTC 1," according to the Final Report on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in September 2005:

The aircraft flew almost straight toward the north tower, banked approximately 25 degrees to the left (i.e. the right wing elevated relative to the left wing) and descended at an angle of about 10 degrees at impact.
Moving at about 440 mph, the nose hit the exterior of the tower at the 96th floor. The aircraft cut a gash that was over half the width of the building and extended from the 93rd floor to the 99th floor.

All but the lowest of these floors were occupied by Marsh & McLennan, a worldwide insurance company, which also occupied the 100th floor.

"The fuselage was centered on the 96th floor slab and filled the 95th and 96th floors top to bottom," the NIST report says.
So, what was on the 95th and 96th floors of the north tower, which were rented by Marsh & McLennan, Lewis Paul "Jerry" Bremer's company?

Bremer, it should be noted, was the Bush-appointed proconsul or administrator of occupied Iraq until the end of June 2004. During Bremer's reign there was no metering of the oil that was exported from Iraq.

It is also primarily decisions taken by Bremer that are responsible for the misery and chaos that have afflicted Iraq since the U.S.-led occupation began. Previously, Bremer was the right-hand man for Henry Kissinger & Associates.

The NIST report provides some information about "General Description of Tenant Layout." For the floors in question it says, "Generally open space filled with workstations. Offices, conference rooms, and work areas in exterior corners."

But on the 95th floor, Marsh & McLennan had a "large walled data center along north and east sides," according to the NIST report. And that's exactly where the plane hit – the north wall of the 95th floor.

I called Marsh & McLennan to get a better idea of what was in this "large walled data center" into which American Airlines Flight 11 plunged with deadly precision.

Reginald McQuay came on the line as a company spokesman. I told McQuay that Marsh & McLennan got hit broadside on 9/11 and that it appeared that the plane flew straight into their "walled data center," according to the NIST report.

"No," McQuay said, "it wasn't really our data center. It was our computer center." Then he suddenly became somewhat distressed, saying he could not even focus on what I was saying and that I should call back next week.

Fair enough, I thought. He had confirmed my primary suspicion, i.e. that the plane that struck the north tower appears to have been "homed in" or targeted on a secure computer center on the 95th floor – exactly like the plane that struck the south tower some 16 minutes later.


"Sixteen and a half minutes after the first impact, five hijackers flew United Airlines (UA) Flight 175, with 9 crew and 51 passengers, into WTC 2 at about 540 mph, about 100 mph faster than AA Flight 11," the NIST report says.

"The center of the nose of the plane struck at the 81st floor slab. The plane was banked 38 degrees to the left (right wing upward) and was heading slightly (6 degrees) downward from the horizontal," it says.

Although Flight 175 went straight into the 81st floor of the south tower, the NIST report provides no description of what was on the 81st floor. Not even one word. How odd.

While we know that the Fuji Bank was the tenant on floors 79-82 of WTC 2, the NIST report fails to describe the "tenant layout" of floors 79, 81, and 82.

I had repeatedly requested information from NIST about the layout of these floors, primarily because many tons of molten metal were seen falling from the 81st floor prior to the collapse.

The source of the large amount of molten metal on the 81st floor had not been explained. What could have possibly melted in such large amounts on a normal floor to create several cubic meters of molten metal?

You can watch the molten iron in both normal and slow motion at youtube:

The same video is here in WMV format:

If this was molten iron, as Professor Steven E. Jones of Brigham Young University says, and if this molten iron was caused by an aluminothermic reaction of Thermite or Thermate (a steel-cutting explosive created from powdered aluminum, iron oxide, and sulfur), then somebody must have pre-loaded the 81st floor of WTC 2 with many tons of Thermate.

The molten metal seen falling from the 81st floor was not aluminum, as the NIST report suggests, because molten aluminum would appear silverfish-grey in daylight conditions.

See our article on Michael Zebuhr's death for photos of molten aluminum:

The metal that is seen falling from the burning south tower is clearly yellow and white hot. This is much hotter than the fires that were observed. So, what produced such large amounts of extremely hot molten metal on the 81st floor of WTC 2?

The aluminum oxide that is produced in the Thermite or Thermate reaction is a whitish smoke. White smoke was seen coming from the 81st floor prior to each flow of molten metal, according to the NIST report, and large amounts of white smoke are seen prior to and during the collapse of each tower. Was this drywall dust or was this Thermite?

Photo: The white smoke is coming from the corner of the South Tower where the molten iron later poured out of.

Photo: A closeup of the corner of the South Tower where the molten iron poured from.

Photo: The South Tower starts to collapse. Molten iron was blown out of the tower when the explosives went off.
As the droplets cooled they turned red, creating a spray of red globules mixed with the white clouds of dust. Some of the whiteness may be due to the spray of aluminum oxide particles.

I had imagined huge disguised flower pots of powdered Thermite near the elevators of a normal office floor of the south tower. But even that didn't make sense. Furthermore, if the 81st floor was a normal office floor of Fuji Bank, why doesn't the NIST report simply say so?
Silence was all I ever received from NIST.

Then, suddenly, out of the blue, a former bank employee came forward, a person who had visited the 81st floor on a weekly basis. His information explains more than he probably thought and provides us with a major clue about what really happened on 9/11.

Fuji Bank had torn up the 81st floor, he said, and stripped it down to the bare bone to reinforce the trusses so that the floor could hold more weight. Then they had built a raised floor and filled the entire floor with server-size Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) batteries.

These units were bolted to the raised floor which stood about 3 feet above the reinforced 81st floor. Beneath the raised floor ran the cables and power supply that connected the army of batteries. IT techies had to get down on all fours and crawl around beneath the raised floor to connect cables.

"The whole floor was batteries," he said, "huge battery-looking things." They were "all black" and "solid, very heavy" things that had been brought in during the night. They had been put in place during the summer prior to 9/11, he said.

But were they really batteries?

"It's weird," he said. "They were never turned on."

So, what really was on the 81st floor of WTC 2? What was in these heavy "battery-looking things?" Were they batteries, or were they Thermite?

Only senior Information Technology (IT) personnel from Fuji Bank, or the Japanese banks affiliated with it, had access to the 81st floor computer room, according to the source. The Mizuho Bank was established originally as Mizuho Holdings, Inc. by the merger of Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank (DKB), Fuji Bank and the Industrial Bank of Japan (IBJ) in 2000.

According to the former bank employee, employees of Shimizu-America Corp. also had access to the floor.

Shortly after 9/11, the IBJ became the biggest player and took over the new corporation that had been created by the merger, primarily because the offices of the DKB and Fuji Bank had been destroyed in the World Trade Center, the source said.

The offices of the IBJ were located on the Avenue of the Americas and became the new headquarters for the bank. The DKB and Fuji Bank personnel soon found themselves out of work.

"Nobody worked on that floor," the source said about Floor 81. The whole floor was taken up with a "whole bunch of batteries" and "enclosed server racks" that were so tall that one could not see over the top of them. The enclosed server racks were locked and the only people who could open them were employees of the Shimizu Corp., he said.

Didn't the host of NIST scientists think that was worthy of mention? They either did not know that the 81st floor was full of "battery-looking things" or decided not to mention it. How odd.

William Torrey, the Atlanta-based senior vice president of Shimizu-America, said he could not say anything about the work that Shimizu did on the 81st floor because of ongoing litigation. Asked about the litigation, Torrey said he could not comment on that either.

Seth Martin, the non-Japanese spokesman for the Mizuho Corp., could not give any comment for this article. Mr. Martin did not respond to repeated calls.

The NIST documents that accompany the final report confirm the source's information that Fuji Bank had reinforced the 81st floor. Documents dated 1999 say that reinforcements were added to the floor trusses "to accommodate the new UPS workspace." The structural engineering firm was noted as LERA, or Leslie E. Robertson and Associates.

SawTeen See, a managing partner of LERA, said the firm was unable to comment on the work it had done on the 81st floor. "We are not at liberty to comment on this or to provide any further information," she wrote. "Please contact the PANYNJ who are the project owners."

Fuji Bank & Trust reported 12 out of 125 Japanese expatriate employees missing the day after 9/11. Two American employees of Fuji Bank are also reported to have died on 9/11:

• Security officer Patrick Adams, 60
• John Andreacchio, 52

Both men were from New York.

Extremely interesting article! Thanks!

BTW, whtat's happening with that ex-Marsh & McLennan employee, Richard Andrew Grove? Has he put anything new out lately?

Zeroing in on the truth

This is excellent work, and if fits my way of thinking like a glove. I will never accept that undertrained Muslims were at the controls of these commercial jet liners. If Mohammed Atta was in the cockpit, he had a joystick to nowhere. The planes were precision guided, the building impacts were targeted ahead of time. If you watch CNN footage of the second impact, footage known to be in the public record, it is evident that charges are going off just slightly before the impact on the South Tower.

Excellent follow up work here, wherin we now can pass along WHAT the planes hit in each tower. Greatly strengthens the overall argument. Good Work!

Computer rooms

I read a story a couple years back which included the testimony from a woman who worked in the WTC on I believe either the 22nd of 33rd floor..... whichever floor it was it housed the computer mainframes. She tells of the recent renovations that they had been doing to these floors..... She said that they installed blast resistant glass on these floors to protect against an arial attack....

I thought this was weird because an attack from the air would not affect the 22nd floor because the building was completely surrounded by 40 story buildings.... her point of the story was there must have been some warning of an attack from the air...... but I knew exacly what that blast proof glass was to protect against.

To conceal the blasts coming from inside the building!

I really didn't consider that there were multiple floors designated to computer mainframes..... if there were... then I'm positive that they made the same renovations for all of them... including the blast proof windows


I wish I knew where I read that.... someone trying to debunk me one day posted that for some reason... and that blog was scrubbed shortly after that and our entire argument was deleted..... after I stomped her.... It may have been in a FEMA report?? I know it was on a site that had an analysis of steel from building 7 that showed the structural steel which had somehow evaporated...

here is story


Heightened Security Alert Had Just Been Lifted

By Curtis L. Taylor and Sean Gardiner

September 12, 2001

The World Trade Center was destroyed just days after a heightened security alert was lifted at the landmark 110-story towers, security personnel said yesterday.

Daria Coard, 37, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on Thursday, bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed.

"Today was the first day there was not the extra security," Coard said. "We were protecting below. We had the ground covered. We didn't figure they would do it with planes. There is no way anyone could have stopped that."

Security guard Hermina Jones said officials had recently taken steps to secure the towers against aerial attacks by installing bulletproof windows and fireproof doors in the 22nd-floor computer command center.

"When the fire started, the room was sealed," said Jones, who was in the command center when explosions rocked the building. "Flames were shooting off the walls....We started putting wet towels under the doors. The Fire Department unsealed the door and grabbed us by the hand and said, 'Run!' "

Security worker Diane Easton said she was out front writing tickets when notice of "a plane flying too low" placed security personal on alert.

"The plane went right through the building...and debris started falling everywhere, then 15 minutes later the second plane," Easton said.

Nancy Joyner said several police officers were knocked down and then were stampeded in the ensuing frenzy.

"People were flying out of the windows; there was nothing we could do," Joyner said. "People were pulled from the top floors by the wind tunnel created."

More fun with NIST

Look at all the neat stuff they are involved in.... all government related.... who's getting paid???$$$$


NIST Response to the World Trade Center (WTC) Disaster
Dr. S. Shyam Sunder, Acting Deputy Director and Lead Investigator, Building and Fire Research Laboratory, NIST

Dr. Sunder reviewed the findings from the 24-month building and fire safety investigation of the WTC Disaster. His presentation began with brief overviews on the national context for this investigation; the three elements of the WTC response plan; the public and private stakeholders and partners involved in the response plan; the enabling actions by NIST, the Administration, and Congress; the role of the National Construction Safety Team (NCST) Advisory Committee, and the objectives of the NIST WTC investigation. All of the stakeholders and partners follow NIST's work carefully and have been briefed on the progress of the investigation. Additional resources are still needed in FY 2006 to address the R&D and dissemination issues that arose as a result of the investigation.

He then presented an analysis of how the WTC towers collapsed following the initial impact of the two aircraft. The collapse sequences were a refinement of the leading hypotheses released by NIST last October. Dr. Sunder emphasized that the subsequent fires ignited by the jet fuel played a major role in further reducing the structural capacity of the buildings. The sequences are supported by extensive computer modeling, photographs and videos, recovered steel, eyewitness accounts, and emergency communication records. Evacuation rates, the condition of the stairwells, occupant preparedness, and emergency responder operations also were described based on 1,034 interviews with WTC surviving occupants and 116 interviews with first responders. An unprecedented amount of data collection was required for reconstructing the exact sequence of events beginning with the impact of the aircraft, to the fire dynamics, to progression of local failures that initiated building collapse.

In addition, Dr. Sunder briefly described the process for developing building and fire codes in the United States and the NIST role in providing technical support. He then discussed the approach for releasing the recommendations that will identify specific improvements in the way people design, construct, maintain, and use buildings. NIST intends to continue to work closely with the building and fire safety communities to ensure that the recommendations are given proper consideration. The WTC Towers Investigation Reports will total more than 10,000 pages in 43 reports written by NIST researchers and contractors mostly from the private sector. The draft of the final investigation report will be released for public comment in June. The draft investigation report for WTC 7 is expected to be released this fall.

Dr. Sunder also summarized seven challenges that NIST successfully addressed, including coordinating with the 9/11 Commission and local authorities as well as leading and managing an extended investigation team of 236 people comprised of NIST staff, contractors, and other technical experts. Lastly, examples of the investigation's extensive media coverage, which has been mostly positive, were provided.

Discussion: A VCAT member inquired about any limitations associated with 2.3 million grid points calculated in the WTC 1 Tower Model for Aircraft Impact Analysis. Dr. Sunder replied that multiple computers were used for this analysis as NIST tested the limits of most commercially available software.

More details about the WTC investigation are provided in Dr. Sunder's presentation.

There is a link to the presentation there but it was taking forever to load??????

Interesting stuff here


I don't know if you noticed above... but there were 236 people on the NIST team.... the same as the 236 exterior coulmns in each ot the towers

NIST WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


"Taken from 2003 House Conference Report 108-10
FY 2003 Omnibus Appropriations Bill Conference Report…"


The conference agreement includes $712,134,000 for the appropriations accounts under the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for fiscal year 2003.

A description of each account and the Committee recommendation follows:


The conference agreement includes $359,411,000 for the Scientific and Technical Research and Services (core programs) appropriation of the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The following is a breakdown of the amounts provided under this account by activity.
FY03 Recomended
Electronics Electrical 45,731
Manufacturing Engineering 21,128
Chemical 40,313
Physics 35,500
Building and Fire Research 21,542
Materials Science & Engineering 56,532
Computer Applied Mathematics 53,078
Technology Assistance 17,679
Baldrige Quality Awards 5,205
Research Support 62,703
Total, STRS $359,411

Under the Building and Fire Research heading, the recommendation includes $2,500,000 for a wind research project, $3,000,000 for research efforts related to the World Trade Center collapse investigation.

Under the Computer and Applied Math heading, the recommendation includes $1,000,000 for expert review teams, $2,100,000 for wireless technologies and computer security checklists and guidelines, and $500,000 in support of voting machine standards.

Under the Chemical Science and Technology Program heading, the recommendation includes $1,000,000 to restore reductions in environmental measurements at the Hollings Marine Laboratory.

Under the Electronics and Engineering heading, $3,000,000 is for salaries associated with the Office of Law Enforcement Standards to ensure that NIST has the critical personnel with the expertise to implement law enforcement standards initiatives proposed by their partner federal agencies.

In addition, under the Research Support heading, the recommendation includes $2,400,000 for a telework project, $6,500,000 for a certain critical infrastructure program, and includes $15,000,000 for the Advanced Measurement Laboratory in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Further, the conferees have heard reports that U.S. companies may not be as competitive as non-U.S. companies in emerging markets because U.S. standards are not incorporated in many international agreements. The conferees request NIST with input from the ITA, to provide to the Committees on Appropriations, no later than April 11, 2003, a plan detailing efforts that ensure U.S. business interests are represented in new international standard negotiations.

Competitive sourcing. The conferees understand that there are efforts within the Department of Commerce and other Departments, to use the implementation of the President's Management Initiative for Competitive Outsourcing (the A-76 process) as a way to reduce staff by more than 50 percent. This initiative is designed to compete or directly convert 15 percent of those positions identified as commercially competitive. However, the conferees understand that efforts are underway to identify roughly 75 percent of NIST's positions as commercial for purposes of this initiative. While the conferees certainly agree that there are certain advantages to competitive outsourcing, there is a concern that blind implementation could severely inhibit the operations of the Institute in the future. The conferees direct NIST to provide a detailed plan to the Committees on Appropriations prior to any changes in support of `competitive outsourcing'.

For more than a century, the scientists, engineers, and supporting organizations of the Institute have established standards that affect nearly every aspect of life and work in America, from the doses of radiation in medical X-rays to the level of protection in bullet-proof vests used by police officers. NIST's mission plays an ever more critical role today by supporting our homeland security efforts through the development of standards for mail irradiation, guidelines for cyber security for Federal IT systems, and by conducting the Federal investigation of the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings.

The recommendation does not include a requested increase to the allowable amount to be transferred to the working capital fund.


The conference agreement includes $286,623,000 for the Industrial Technology Services appropriation of the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program--Recent economic downturns have had a devastating effect on the manufacturing sector. Therefore, to ameliorate some of the effect on this sector, the conferees have included $106,623,000 for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program to fund all existing centers.

Advanced Technology Program--The conference agreement includes $180,000,000 for the program, of which $60,700,000 is for new awards. This amount, when combined with approximately $34,000,000 in prior year funds, provides ATP awards at the fiscal year 2002 level. Within the amounts made available, $45,000,000 shall be used for administrative costs, internal laboratory support, and for Small Business Innovation Research Program requirements.


The conference agreement includes $66,100,000 for construction, renovation, and maintenance of NIST facilities. Of the amounts provided, $11,090,000 is for urgently needed construction and renovation projects at the Boulder, Colorado laboratory, including a new primary electrical service and the first phase of the central utility plant, these investments should help minimize the number of brownouts affecting the campus; $4,000,000 is to offset fit-up costs related to the Advanced Measurement Laboratory in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to be completed by December 2003; and $22,194,000 for the backlog of safety, capacity, maintenance, and major repair projects account for the two NIST campuses.

The conferees direct NIST to report to the Committees on Appropriations on the progress of these construction projects on a quarterly basis.

Up to $282,000 is available to transfer to the working capital fund, as proposed.

This account supports all NIST activities by providing the state of the art facilities necessary to carry out the NIST mission.

I"M NOT EVEN SURE WHAT TO SAY $$$$$712,134,000!!!!!



$$$2.3 Trillion

I was watching "Pandoras Black Box" Part II... and thinking about this post..... I have not added up these numbers yet but it appears to be much more than $712,134,000.....

Made me wonder how many companies are getting this grease job with government grants?

We know about Halliburton...Bechtel....Dyncorp....

Where is all our money going? It's very simple.

Listen we are making more money than ever.... spending it even faster....

all these expendatures are taxed.... all our earnings are taxed.... Everything we buy is taxed....our government makes more off off gas taxes than oils companies make off the fuel.... everyones houses are worth twice as much as 8 years ago and we are paying taxes on those houses and their new worth... We are amidst a borrowed economy, which is not good, but we are paying taxes at an alarming pace..... If we can not pay off our national debt during a time of excess like the past ten years.... then we are never going to pay off this debt..... no matter how hard we work because there is a major leak in this system... and we know where this leak is coming from.

We need to put a Stopper in the White House Drain!!

Ron Paul for President!!!

"...but I knew exactly what

"...but I knew exactly what that blast proof glass was to protect against. To conceal the blasts coming from inside the building!"

That's very, very interesting.

Show "so which plane was it" by fatty was had! (not verified)

no planes + closed minds = negative ratings

dangerous truth :)

Thanks. I posted the article on our blog.

I think Daryl Bradford Smith

I think Daryl Bradford Smith goes a little far on his website and interviews, but Christopher Bollyn's work is imperative. He's the only guy who's breaking new ground each and every day. Everyone else for the most part just rehashes the same information over and over.


Did you hear about Bollyn getting Tazored by I believe it was agents of the DIA. It might have been the CIA.

He was in the hospital and took a break to recover. Shortly after
the paper he worked for Freedom Press ... fired him.

“it is possible to fool all the people all the time—when government and press cooperate.” George Seldes - "legendary investigative reporter"

I know all about it, yeah.

I know all about it, yeah. And I'm surprised more Truthers don't talk or know about it. It's a red flag. That's what made me realize he's the real deal and is on to something. No one else in the truth movement has been tasered... because they're not coming up with anything new. We know enough to take action, but we don't know everything yet.

I am knew at this

I will try better next time to do a better job at posting stuff i have been in the woods clearing land from sun up to sun down this last week and i am beat.
this is good info it totally makes sense theres no wat those idiot hijakers could of flown those airplanes into those buildings without some sort of help thanks for the comments D

Planes did not fly into

Planes did not fly into anything on 9/11.

Had an airplane hit the trade center it would have exploded on the outer wall. It would have suffered rapid deleleration and loss of energy mostly through heat and noise. Newton.

your not an idiot are you

then what did ? look at the building, after the plane hit there is an otline of a plane, it so damn true a plane hit the building try telling your story to a jury of 12 people there is no way you can prove your side.
