Winnipeg Sun: 9/11 an 'inside job'?

9/11 an 'inside job'?
Controlled demolition, claims California architect

Conspiracy buffs are in for a big treat.

California architect Richard Gage will be in Winnipeg this week to offer his explanation of why the World Trade Centre towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Gage has become a leading figure of the so-called 9/11 truth movement, an informal campaign from people all over the world who challenge official accounts of what happened that day.

He argues that a deliberate, controlled demolition using explosive devices is what really destroyed the twin towers that day, along with another skyscraper known as WTC 7 or Building 7. Speaking to Sun Media from his Bay Area home this weekend, Gage said few people are even aware of the third building.


"It's the smoking gun of 9/11," he said. "It was a 47-storey building, not hit by an airplane, that came down into its own footprint in 6.5 seconds, at nearly freefall speed -- symmetrically, smooth, straight down."

Gage says Building 7 fell after sustaining relatively minor damage due to the collapse of one of the twin towers hours earlier, with small fires on its fifth and 12th floors.

Explosions were heard around its base as it collapsed and a large amount of molten metal was found in the basement area, said Gage. He claims the only good explanation for the presence of the metal is that it came from certain kinds of incendiary charges.

"Two small fires -- even large, hot-burning, long-lasting fires -- have never brought down a steel frame highrise building, ever," said Gage.

By all official accounts, the 9/11 attacks were the work of the al-Qaida terrorist network but Gage is trying to spur the U.S. Congress to launch a new investigation into who was responsible. "We don't know who did it and we don't know why," he said. "That's why we need an investigation."

Gage is scheduled to address a public audience tomorrow at 1 p.m. with a free lecture in University Centre at the University of Manitoba. At 7 p.m. he'll conduct a seminar at the Fort Garry Hotel.

On Wednesday at 7 p.m., Gage will give a presentation at the Gas Station Theatre on what he calls the mainstream media's "code of silence" about the 9/11 "inside job."

Joe Hawkins, a Winnipeg chiropractor helping arrange the seminars, says no one wants to talk about who's really behind the 9/11 attacks.

"Clearly it points to elements within the government," he said. "If it's an inside job, it has to be inside the military-industrial government complex."

Hawkins says he's on hiatus from his practice, in part because he's been busy the past few years trying to get information out about 9/11.

nice to see that they are

nice to see that they are running this on the front page of their website as well..

Good Post

Now perhaps people will begin to listen. It seems to me that just about every day someone new challenges the official myth. Eventually the mainstream media will have to break their code of silence in order to survive.

Fires in WTC 7

It's not accurate to say that there were only fires on two floors. Mr Gage should be informed about this. Not that it really matters, but one shouldn't give "debunkers" any ammunition.

All the photos & videos of WTC-7 that I've seen, I see flames

coming out of a few windows on 2 floors. That enormous building (having the same square footage as one of the towers) had thousands of windows, btw. How could flames in a few windows, on one side of the building no less, bring the structure down in a free-fall-like implosion?

Also, why should there have fire in WTC-7 at all? It was 350 feet from the nearest tower. Why wasn't the fire dept allowed to knock those scattered flames down?

Fires revisited

"In all the photos & videos of WTC-7 that I've seen, I see flames
coming out of a few windows on 2 floors."

Then have a look at the photos on e.g. this page:

One can see fires on at least three floors.

The picture with fires on two distinct floors was shown to some fire brigade personnel here. They didn't know that it was the picture of a WTC building. They considered it very likely that the fires had been deliberately started, because they were on separate floors with several non-fire floors between.

I agree with you that having flames on separate floors is also

very suspicious.

The photos with the massive gray smoke billowing out of WTC-7 seem to have been taken just before the implosion began.

(Thermate/thermite does produce massive gray smoke, we know.)

The fires were deliberately started.

You bet your sweet ass they were. It is a clear case of arson. The so-called "Official Report" on 9/11 has so many holes it makes Swiss cheese look solid. What I find absolutely mind-boggling is how some people can still believe the official report. If I live to be 100 I will never understand that one.

WTC 7 = Smoking Gun.

The World Trade Center Building 7 is by far the SMOKING GUN of 9/11. The more attention we pay to this the better. This introduces people to the movement where hopefully then they will fill in the rest of the story with good information. This thread even made me more aware of the craziness of WTC 7 and the fact that it wasn't even in the Commission Report is criminal. ARSON is a very good hypothesis and most likely the cause of those fires. Damn it. We need more publicity breaks like this one in Winnipeg.

Emailing was a good idea

This is what I sent:

Thank you for your courageous and balanced article!

The case of WTC 7 alone proves that the official story cannot be true. As even NIST has acknowledged, the steel debris of this, the third-worst building disaster in recorded history was not examined at all (NIST: "no steel was recovered from WTC 7"). Yet, if some random fires and asymmetric damage had caused its demolition-like descent into its foundations, the consequences for building safety, construction techniques etc. would be enormous.

WTC 7 came down in 6.5 seconds. The corresponding freefall time for its roof would have been 6 seconds. Thus, the 80+ support columns of the building did not resist the destruction more than air. Moreover, as the building came straight down, all these support columns had to be destroyed simultaneously at the start of the collapse. Both the symmetry and the speed of the collapse are possible only in controlled demolition.


We're ahead!

51% yes!

More progress

52% yes, 48% no!

I tried to vote twice

but it was rejected. I guess they can check IP addresses. I just checked again and we are way ahead, not that it means anything. 9/11 was an inside job period. No poll can change that.

1 of 3 smoking guns

WTC 1, 2, and 7 are all smoking guns. None of them were destroyed just by airplane impacts and fires.
