Letter to the Editor: 9/11 news is being buried
9/11 news is being buried
Published: Friday, May 22, 2009
Another group of scientists has found evidence of explosives in the dust at ground zero, 9/11.
Actually it isn’t news at all. Hasn’t been covered. One might expect calls far and wide for a public investigation by qualified scientists to examine whether the findings are accurate. Yawn.
There is a lot of interest on the Internet, among people who don’t take a paycheck from corporate media. There is interest among ex-CIA, military, pilots, architects, engineers, physicists, demolition experts, metallurgists, academics and so on.
But not a peep from corporate media. We know corporate media are obtuse propagandists for corporate interests like the treasonous illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. They love that shock and awe. It’s good TV.
They are enemies of democracy and friends of wealth. Does The Sentinel know that the work of these scientists is “cartoonish”? How do you know?
I say, prove it.
Prove the scientists are wrong, or that there is ambiguity.
Recognize the gravity of the implications. Respect the sincerity of the scientists. Report the news.

This was my comment:
When Tom Rogers said "Another group of scientists has found evidence of explosives in the dust at ground zero, 9/11", he was likely referring to this peer-reviewed paper published April 2009 in the refereed Open Chemical Physics Journal:
Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe
So far, no paper has been published that rebuts or debunks their findings- though many pretend rebuttals have been posted on the "internets". The material is not paint; paint doesn't produce iron microspheres when heated to 700 C in a DSC; iron melts at 1435 C. The material is not Kaolin; it contains elemental Aluminum. In addition to it's unusual thermitic properties, the material shows signs of being highly engineered- aluminum in platelet form.
In addition to the above paper, see this paper which highlights information from official government reports that disproves NIST's (and FEMA's) own conclusions:
Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction
And this report, which uses the EPA's own data to make the case that energetic materials were present, and likely involved in the WTC destruction- also never debunked, just ignored:
Environmental anomalies at the World Trade Center: evidence for energetic materials
