Berkeley, CA, April 23, 2009 – More than 640 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) are calling for a new, independent investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center high-rises. These building professionals cite evidence of explosive demolition at all three WTC high-rises on 9/11 and document the evidence at their website. Michael Heimbach, assistant director of the FBI's counterterrorism division, wrote that their claims and conclusion were "backed by thorough research and analysis."

AE911Truth will host exhibitor's information booth #2609 at this year's annual convention of the prestigious American Institute of Architects (AIA). The convention, with more than 800 exhibitors and more than 20,000 participating architects, will take place in San Francisco's Moscone Center, April 30-May 2.

This exhibition will be followed up on Saturday May 2nd with a dynamic multi-media presentation by AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA. Mr Gage will cover the forensic evidence found at the crime scene as well as a review of the omissions in the official FEMA and NIST reports. Join AE911Truth at the Westin Market Street Hotel at 50 Third St. in San Francisco at 4:00 pm on Saturday for this thorough review of the myth-shattering information.

Time magazine acknowledged in 2006 that the 9/11 Truth movement was not a "fringe phenomenon," but "a mainstream political reality." As well, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth petition signers have been encouraged by President Obama's promise to "restore science to its rightful place."

Join AE911Truth at booth #2609 to review the startling evidence not reported in the media or by agencies in charge of the investigations.

2009 will be a milestone year for 9/11 Truth !!

"It is you who are the torch-bearers with respect to that truth.... ...STEEL YOUR SPINES. Inspire your children. Then when the moment is right, rise again...." W PEPPER

Yes, it will!

Just chipped in again to AE 9/11 Truth-- and it felt really GOOD! Everyone please do the same. I also donated to NYC CAN yesterday. Thanks for your tips TomT on ads, but I think I'm going to ride these two horses. We all have our parts to play, but let's all rally around AE 9/11 Truth and NYC CAN for a huge milestone 2009!

Already a sustaining member.

Wish I could be there for the convention. I'm sure we will see the number 640 rise considerably after the convention!


These are the times that try men's souls

Definitely worth watching.

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

News from AE911Truth :

News from AE911Truth : Special Thank You and the Next Step - Richard Gage, AIA

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

How many A&E members

will be working the trade show?

I know the 9.11 san diego truth group, has some girl models members, they would be perfect for bringing in people.

Fantastic idea!

Please bring the girls in!

This demands ACTION!

To many years have pasted, It's time for the entire
Truth Movement to finally put aside all our differences.
For the first time we now have the "LOADED GUN."
We've researched for a smoking gun from almost the
beginning, now science has finally given us something
more than a smokin' gun. We have the LOADED GUN
with fingerprints all over it and every effort now most be
made to present it to the WORLD! If this evidence is pushed
under the so called "carpet" we'll never HAVE justice!


blueprint for truth and nyc can

i want to recommend to everyone who can to buy the bulk amount of dvds from where you can get 100 DVDs "9/11 Blueprint for Truth: The Architecture of Destruction" for about $1.50 each.. This way you can sell them to buy another 100.. then another.. the tough part is not giving too many away.. since it is the best 2-hour program of evidence beyond any reasonable doubt.

please too note this grassroots letter on how to best use the information by researchers that will get results:

640 architects and engineers have honored their profession and nation.

thank you..

Jonathan Kay: An evening in Montreal with Richard Gage, 9/11 Truth Movement prophet extraordinaire
Posted: April 23, 2009, 10:53 PM by Jonathan Kay
Jonathan Kay

Three years ago, Richard Gage says, he was just a run-of-the mill architect, designing steel-frame buildings for clients in the San Francisco area. In March, 2006, that changed: While flipping through stations on his car radio, he caught an interview with David Ray Griffin, a retired philosophy and religion professor who calls the official account of the 9/11 attacks "one big lie."

Beginning that day, Gage became skeptical of the idea that "people living in Afghan caves" could possibly have brought down the World Trade Center. The more likely explanation, he decided, was a plot by warmongering elements within America's own government. Spreading this message is now the man's full-time job.

As radical as Gage's theory may sound to readers, it's surprisingly popular. The "9/11 Truth Movement," as it is now commonly called, has millions of adherents across the world. In a 2006 Scripps Howard poll of 1,010 U.S. citizens, 36% of respondents said it was "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that the U.S. government was in on the 9/11 plot. According to another poll conducted in Canada, 39% of respondents said they either disagree, or are unsure, that Al Qaeda was responsible for 9/11.

What makes Gage stand out from the millions of students and young activists who comprise the bulk of the Truther community is that he is an architect — and a respectable-looking middle-aged one at that, complete with suit and tie, and receding hairline. His group, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, even scored a booth at the upcoming American Institute of Architects conference from April 30 to May 2.

Last Saturday, I went to see Gage speak at a Montreal event hosted by the Mouvement montréalais pour la vérité sur le 11 septembre, along with about 150 others (not a bad crowd, given the 10$ cover charge, and the fact it was a hockey night).

As part of my research for a book I'm writing on the Truther movement, I've gone to see a variety of events like this — but none of the speakers I've seen are as lucid as Gage.

Truthers often are prone to rambling: Your average speaker at a 9/11 Truth event, taking the podium with an overflowing sheaf of Internet print outs, might start his presentation on the mechanics of the WTC attacks, segue into a denunciation of George W. Bush's war crimes, and then veer into a lengthy disquisition on the 1995 Oklahoma bombing, before bringing the audience back to the Twin Towers. Not Gage: His singular focus — laboriously examined in a 527-slide PowerPoint presentation — is the sequence of events leading to the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. Expertise is critical to the mission of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, he says. "We're building and technical professionals," Gage told the audience. 'We're not conspiracy theorists."

Much of Gage's 2-hour-plus presentation was dry and technical — including a long series of slides analyzing the chemical composition of the WTC debris (an inquiry central to his claim that the Twin Towers were brought down from within by a particular type of iron-oxide-based explosive). But he also has plenty of videos embedded in his slides. And this is where the crowd came alive.

In one particularly effective segment, he puts up shots of the localized fires that broke out in the lower floors of WTC Building 7 hours before it collapsed. Seconds later, he shows footage of Beijing's Mandarin Oriental hotel — which suffered an epic top-to-bottom conflagration in 2009 … and remained standing.

It's a cinematic juxtaposition that plays to the Truthers' strongest card: Even architects and engineers who've never heard of Richard Gage will concede they aren't quite sure why WTC7, a fairly typical tube-frame structure located about a football field away from WTC1, would be struck down by localized fires and random debris.

As one would expect, it was a friendly crowd to begin with. (Who else besides a committed Truther, except possibly a journalist, or an exceptionally accommodating girlfriend, would spend their Saturday night in a community-centre auditorium listening to a man talk about thermite reactions and load factors?) Before beginning his presentation, Gage polled the crowd on their views. Five people — including me and my guest — said they believed the "official theory" of 9/11. Ten others said they were "unsure." Everyone else — 90% of the crowd — said the WTC came down through "controlled demolition."

The presentation only made the balance of opinion in the room more lopsided. There were emotional gasps and shouts when some dramatic bit of evidence was displayed. A couple sitting behind me seemed particularly moved. "How can those war criminals look at themselves in the mirror after what they've done," one exclaimed. (She wasn't talking about al-Qaeda.) Even my own guest, a conservative-minded woman who normally laughs off this sort of thing, seemed transfixed, falling silent at points where I expected she'd be chortling and eyeball-rolling.

During the Q&A, high passions caused the proceedings to turn somewhat nasty: When I took the mic and asked how such a massive conspiracy, presumably involving hundreds if not thousands of insiders, could possibly go undetected, the crowd began shouting me down. "Educate yourself," one audience member screamed after someone at the podium outed me as a National Post journalist. "Typical media bullshit," yelled another.

On the other hand, I protested, at least I’d shown up in the first place — the only working mainstream journalist (to my knowledge) in the room.

I'd hoped this would count for something: One of the Truthers’ biggest complaints is that they are ignored by the mainstream media. You do sometimes see stray mentions of the movement in op-ed columns or on radio programs, but usually it's in the spirit of mockery or passing sarcasm. No major media outlet has done a truly comprehensive profile or investigation of the Truther movement — which is what led me to my book project in the first place.

Even if you are — like me — part of the majority that believes the "official theory" of 9/11, it's a mistake to ignore a movement as large and passionately championed as this one. Across North America (never mind Europe and North America), millions of people have decided that the leaders of the free world are actually murderers — or, at least, in league with murderers – who’d wantonly slaughter thousands of their own citizens as a means to advance a geopolitical agenda. Isn't that something that should interest us?

And the movement is attracting new recruits, too. Once he’d finished his lengthy presentation last Saturday, Gage conducted a second poll of the room. This time, when he asked how many people supported the "official theory," mine was the only hand raised. Shocked, I turned to the friend sitting beside me.

After three hours in a room with Richard Gage, she’d changed her vote to "not sure."

my email to Jonathan Kay

"After three hours in a room with Richard Gage, she’d changed her vote to 'not sure.'"

Pay attention to your friend. She's obviously smarter than you.

Mr. Kay's one word response to my email


Which just goes to show, as difficult as it can be under the circumstances, it's best to keep our humor intact.

News today

Plane went into restriced airspace in Washington today.... was immediately met by two jet fighters and two Marine helicopters. But not on 911 an hour after it was clear that we were under attack??? hmmmm.... weird
Together in Truth!

Probably because

Cheney wasn't in the PEOC bunker at the time.


Guess NORAD had no reason to go to sleep today.
The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

Damn Rep !

.........I don't want to sound negative, but we are going on eight years!........ This would be fine if we had a small amount of evidence, however what we have is overwhelming!
Enough of this bulls*t!
Are Americans this stupid? !.................


Americans are that stupid... sadly.

~In Lak'esh
(Mayan: You are another me)

The majority of American's

are sheepy consumers. & they have been eating up the myth & consequences of 9.11 for 8 years.

It's not easy to realize you have been fed sh^t you're whole life.

I like this new video to break the "leak myth"

Many often have doubted evidence of a crime and cover-up simply because they think it would take hundreds if not thousands to pull this off and SOMEBODY would have blown the whistle. Of course this is very good question which could only be answered by an investigation. That would be my best reply to that question because the only thing we can prove that the OCT is a lie. Of course they have this misconception that the 9/11 plot was passed around like a torture memo . (oye...)

Well I showed this video tonight to my very staunch disbelieving co-worker after which it finally broke down the last barrier. It helped him see a bigger picture. Its a great example of how the perpetrators of the crime are in key positions of power to make sure the cover up stays in place. The only thing William Black is missing is the next step. He blames all these "loser CEO's" getting hired all the time. How? Who are CEO's hired by? The Board of Directors. And you have the same guys that serve on multiple boards such as Aylwin Lewis ( Board Member ABC News and Haliburton), or Stephen Bollenbach (Board of CNN, Director of AIG). The get a little glimpse at the next level in the pyramid of power. Hope you all have similar results.

Peace all


Will try to be there

Will try to make SF event. This will be a good one. Congratulations, Richard and ae911truth team, on all your hard work to put this thing together. Science and people are the foundation of the 911 truth movement. Thank you all for bearing the burden of reality day in and day out. Steve Walker
