Open Letter to The New York Times from the ReThink911 Campaign

Dear New York Times,

NYTimesBillBoard_ReThink911The ReThink911 campaign has erected a billboard across the street from your headquarters to call your attention to the evidence, cited by over 2,000 architects and engineers, that proves World Trade Center Building 7 was brought down by controlled demolition on 9/11. We urge you to look at the evidence—starting with the video footage of the collapse—and publish an editorial stating your position on the challenges being made to the government’s explanation of Building 7’s destruction. The question of what happened to Building 7 is simply too important for the New York Times not to examine in a careful and balanced way.

To that end, we urge that your editorial include, but not be limited to, the following information and facts:

  • A link to this 30-second video showing the destruction of Building 7 from four different angles: http://youtu.be/Mamvq7LWqRU. We ask you to provide your readers with the necessary context by embedding this video in the online version of your editorial, or providing the above link. According to the YouGov poll commissioned and released by the ReThink911 campaign in September 2013, 46% of Americans still do not know that a third tower fell on 9/11, and yet 46% of those who see this video footage suspect it was a controlled demolition, compared to only 28% who suspect it was caused by ordinary office fires.
  • Building 7 underwent absolute free-fall during the first 2.25 seconds of its descent, as admitted, finally, by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in its final report on Building 7. However, NIST’s computer simulation of Building 7’s destruction does not include a period of free-fall. Architects, engineers and scientists who challenge the NIST report state that free-fall could have only been achieved by removing all of the building’s columns simultaneously with explosives.
  • NIST acknowledged that Building 7’s collapse was the first known instance of a tall building brought down primarily by uncontrolled fires. The New York Times reported in November 2001 that engineers and other experts were stunned by the collapse. FEMA’s report, published in May of 2002, stated that the cause of Building 7’s collapse still remained unknown, and that “the best hypothesis had only a low probability of occurrence.” And yet, the NYC Office of Emergency Management and others on the scene knew with certainty early in the day that Building 7 would eventually come down.

Thank you for your re-consideration of this most important issue.

Sincerely,

Does the NY Times really want to know the truth

I sent the following to everyone that Orangutan suggested. I urge more people to speak out. The Veterans deserve more than the annual lip service.

I implore you to commence the honorable duty of true investigative journalism required to get to the truth, the facts regarding 9/11. A good place to start is “How did WTC Building 7 collapse at free fall speed from office fires?” I challenge you to examine the following:

It will take courage to step “out of the mainstream”. Only when we know the truth will we as citizens be free. Please risk whatever it takes to truly honor all our veterans who risked their lives for our freedom. That would be much more meaningful than just printing the words honor and patriotism in an article once a year.

In my opinion, if we can’t get direct answers with a commitment to investigate and prosecute those who are responsible (yet considered by the corporate insiders that run our country to be “above the law”), then you are choosing “show business as usual” rather than what the American people expect from true journalism at the New York Times.

. "We're all complicit in Bush's war crimes if we ignore them."- Jonathan Turley, Professor of Constitutional Law, George Washington University.

I trust that you really do want to know the truth.

“To question one’s government, to seek the truth, and demand accountability, is the highest form of patriotism.”
