Final minutes of South Tower

Listen to the final moments of the daring rescue efforts of the New York City Fire Department operating in the South Tower of the World Trade Center moments before it suddenly exploded into oblivion. From ae911truth

  2. The last part of the tape was redacted upon release.

Very intense.

Wonderfully produced and edited. Excellent work. Very intense.

With you in the struggle,
WeAreChangeLA -
I work for the 9-11 First Responders, the 9-11 victims, and all those who are being slaughtered and tortured because of 9-11.

I wonder

Why does the tape finish 2 min before the "collapse"? Was it censored by the government? Maybe there was compromising conversation about an explosion, since in many videos, we can see that there was a huge explosion prior to the "collapse"?

This video is really great because it proves indeed that there was no inferno. They were all over the place: staircase A, B, and elevator, and none talked about big, wide spread fires..

I'm curious what the debunkers will come up with to answer to this solid piece of evidence....

A personal opinion

who would want to listen people dying in a collapsing building.


I didn't say I wanted to listen to people dying!!!! What is this answer??

I was just wondering why we didn't hear the last 2 MINUTES from the tape.

And considering the amount of testimonies from firemen that were obtain after FOIA that described clearly explosions, I think it's fair to be doubtful about this 2 minutes blank.

There are some calls... the Kevin Cosgrove call where the caller is on the phone when whomever was responsible initiates the collapse. The calls are very painful to listen to.

That's what I was thinking too

Could there be a way to somehow get the last two minutes of the tapes?

Thanks so much for putting this together.

This video can be a nice bridge to open up someone into investigating 9/11.

Yes, Intense and Emotional

Listening to the voices of the firefighters courageously saving lives brings some reality and purpose into our demanding a new investigation into the events of that fateful day. I haven't been this pissed about 9/11 in a while. What these cowardly perpetrators did to these Heroes is sickening.

Major Shinn

Thank you.


No other way to put it. I am curious however to know where the recording came from. Is this the first time the public has heard it in its entireity? The clip about the fire on 78 and two lines to knock it down has been heard for a long time.

Nonetheless, what a powerful and moving video. I understand your apprehension scubadiver, no one WANTS to hear it, but it is an inescapable truth about that day. May justice be served for all those brave souls who had no idea the fate that awaited them.

peace all

professionally compiled audio evidence

i appreciate this compilation of radio recordings. it has been made very easy to understand and is clearly presented, explained and well narrated.
i have emailed it to a list of contacts, friends and family.

...and I hasten to tell you

The human factor is portrayed in this

and will help people to connect with their own humanity. Many of us felt this intense emotion from the start and realized that we had to stand up for truth and get involved. This very powerful audio should be sent to people at FOX news, political traitors like Rudy Guiliani, side-steppers like Andrew Coumo, and so many others who have lost touch with their humanity.

The war machine counts on the public not hearing or seeing the true results of the carnage it produces. It's time to wake up and protect ourselves and our children from the monsters who make our world HELL!

No Inferno

Just as Chief Palmer said, there were isolated pockets of fire-- the South Tower was not a blazing inferno. The structural integrity of the steel below the impact was sound and hardly even exposed to fire-- the fires were being contained and fought-- and were office fires only.

The top block of floors might well have tipped over due to angular momentum had they not been pulverized by demolition. No way this top section could have been a pile driver, due to its tilt-- and the fact that it disintegrated in mid-air! No mass to crush the floors below.

This is smoking gun audio which should be used in a court of law. What happens after this audio is an act of mass murder, clearly seen in this close-up video from ABC.

Powerful Piece of Proof

Congratulations on putting together this riveting clip. All I can say is "bravo" and "thanks so much for having the idea and being able to communicate it to world in such a simple and powerful way."

I'd like to remind everyone of a little detail. The South Tower was the second tower to be struck and the first to be destroyed. So logically, it was burned for less time than the North Tower. I don't have the source right here to provide, but I do remember hearing that "they" had to bring it down first because the radio transmissions coming out of the building were "inconvenient". "2 isolated pockets of fire" comes near the end of this video clip, and consequently near the beginning of the demolition.

And I also recall all sorts of info coming out that said the firemen's radio were out of date and they couldn't communicate with each other, nor could they receive the information from outside to evacuate...Sounds like these guys could indeed communicate with one another.

Who's going to contact Russia Today? They need to see this video immediately. Is the fireman who attended the AE press conference available to give an interview to RT? They'd need the video and it would make a great news piece if they could interview a fireman/survivor like himself.

Again, great job, Richard and Major Shinn.

Bring it down while the fire was still going

If they waited to bring the South Tower down until after the North Tower (which was struck first) was brought down, they risked having the South Tower come down with the fires already having died out, thus making demolition that much more obvious to many more people. The fires were dying out more quickly in the South Tower as compared with the North Tower, and that's the best explanation I've heard (moreso than the revealing radio transmissions) for why it had to come down first. As David Ray Griffin once said on this topic, 'If fire is going to be the official explanation for why the towers collapsed, then the fires had still better be going when the collapse happens.' The risk of fires going out in the South Tower first was greater than in the case of the North Tower.

The radio transmissions are important

because they provide an undeniable record of the state of the fires. Imagine if they had waited 15 or 20 minutes more and the FDNY radioed down that the fires were now out, how could anyone then explain the "collapse" of the tower(s)?

I think the perps were listening to FDNY transmissions and realized they were going to have to bring the building down or lose their cover story and that's why they brought the South Tower down first and well before they were ready to bring WTC 7 down.

The heroic efforts of the FDNY to get up high into the towers as fast as they could and do their job forced the hand of the perps.

I also think one of the reasons that the FDNY was stuck with those junk "state-of-the-art" digital Motorola radios was to make the radio transmissions as hard to understand as possible, so that their live reports from the buildings would not interfere with the operation and blow the cover story.

This is an excellent and very userful video.

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

tipping over

Perhaps the main reason why the south tower came down when it did was because the top started to tip over. Once this started they had to fell it immediately. If they left it to topple over there would be no way to explain why the lower undamaged part collapsed. It they let it topple and did not blow up the bottom portion it would have remained there, full of explosives, which would eventually have been discovered.

I think someone was sitting with the tower in view and a finger on the button, just in case toppling commenced.

the end

Why does the tape finish short??...where is the last two minutes?

There is a mistake in this video.

The videos states that: "A 10-45 is a person injured in a fire in need of medical assistance."

This is not quite correct.

A 10-45 actually means: "D.O.A. OR SERIOUS INJURY
Transmitted IMMEDIATELY upon the discovery of a fatality
or serious injury at a fire or emergency. This shall be
followed as soon as possible with the appropriate Code
and the number of victims.

In this case, the 10-45 was followed by "Code 1" which means: Victim Deceased

The firefighter was not saying that there were people injured by fire who were in need of help.

He was saying that he saw numerous dead people.
