Peter Phillips Of Project Censored Endorses NYC CAN

Statement of Support for the NYC 9/11 Independent Commission Initiative

The initiative to create a NYC Independent Commission with subpoena power to conduct a comprehensive and fact-driven investigation of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 is absolutely necessary! Only through open transparent public investigation will the unanswered questions of 9/11 be addressed. Foremost among the questions needing to be investigated is the fact that some 700 scientific professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, and physics have now concluded that the official explanation for the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings is implausible according to laws of physics. Especially troubling is the collapse of WTC 7, a forty-seven-story building that was not hit by planes, yet dropped in its own “footprint” in 6.6 seconds in the same manner as a controlled demolition. Steven E Jones and eight other scientists have conducted chemical research on the dust from the World Trade centers. Their research results were published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal Open Chemical Physics Journal, Volume 2, 2009. The authors write, “We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.” Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of a metal powder and a metal oxide, which produces an aluminothermic reaction known as a thermite reaction and is used in controlled demolitions of buildings.

Peter Phillips is the MAN!

Fearless truth

Dr. Phillips works fearlessly to help unearth the most troublingly hidden news that other more nefarious sorts work desperately to keep buried. His principled research has earned him and his program weighty respect among freethinking citizens. I raise a toast to this important public stance he has taken regarding NYC CAN!
I hope everyone here has read his Project Censored books. They open eyes in the back of your head.

I only wish he would change the last sentence

Is there documented evidence of commercial demolition companies using thermite to bring buildings down?

To my knowledge there is none, please correct me if I'm wrong.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

You would know...

Better than I.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?


there are patents granted for ways of demolishing buildings with thermite, Philips' statement is, to my knowledge, incorrect.

I'm not aware of even one single commercial building demolition with thermite or nano-thermite. Such an event would be all over 911blogger if true.

The fact is, 9/11 wasn't perpetrated by "Walmart". It was largely perpetrated by the military. A military demolition is not a commercial demolition. Nano-thermite/thermite variants were used for the express purpose of avoiding obvious chemical signatures, surreptitious application, "blending in with the fires" and tuning of explosion volume.

Clearly it was anticipated that people would be so gullible as to believe that nano-thermite forms when rust meets aluminum in a falling building. This is merely an insurance policy. Matches do not actually magically form in a fire.


I just got my copy of "Censored 2010" from Project Censored and am disgusted. There is zero mention of “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen in the Table of Contents. There is a brief update of Censored 2007's article "Physicist Challenges Official 9/11 Story" mentioning Harrit et al in the footnotes of page 141.

The other mention of the nanotherimite study is in an obscure (no title in Table of Contents) section called "Conspiracy Theories."

I mean, WTF? If Peter Phillips and Project Censored really intended to raise the profile of this landmark study, they would have made it prominent in the Table of Contents. I bought the book based on this article, and feel absolutely hosed.
