9/11 Media Breakthrough in Denmark

The excellent work by Niels Harrit, Farrer, Jones and Ryan et. al in the recent journal article (Thermitic Material Discovered in WTC Dust) has paved the way for some very good media coverage in Denmark. At around 10:30 pm on Monday April 6, Harrit was interviewed for 10 minutes during the late news program on one of the two most respected Danish television channels (TV2). On Wednesday April 8, Harrit was interviewed for 6 minutes at 8:45 am during a live news and entertainment program on the same channel. In both cases, Harrit, and the claims of the article, were treated with refreshing seriousness and respect.

The first interview has been subtitled in English and loaded onto youtube (direct+link), and should appear (embedded) below:

The clip is also available on our server (//agenda911.dk/article.php?story=nanothermite_tv2news) with links to various alternative (higher quality) formats and the full text of the English subtitles. Some readers may want to download a high quality version and mirror it on other servers (put the URL in a comment to this blog entry), in case our server struggles with demand and/or youtube lets us down.

We are working on subtitles for the second 6 min. interview (covers similar material) and will post this later. The journal article has also received reasonably fair coverage in a number of mainstream Danish newspapers (these articles are in Danish, the headlines are translated below):

JyllandsPosten: Researchers: Explosives in dust from WTC

Videnskab.dk: Danish researcher: Explosive nano-material found in dust from WTC

Videnskab.dk: Niels Harrit: Scientific evidence for old knowledge about 9/11

Politiken: 9/11 conspiracy theories revitalised

EkstraBladet: WTC mystery: Nano-thermite in the towers

Ingeniøren: Research+team+claims+to+have+found+nano-explosive+in+the+World+Trade+Center

Kristeligt Dagblad: Dane+resurrects+September+11+conspiracy+theory

We hope this precedent may serve to encourage journalists in other countries to take the article's findings seriously, and start looking more critically at 9/11. Do what you can to make them aware of this coveraage in your country.

This article...

Should be on front page!!

Great interview!

You're right!

Great interview!

Dr. Niels Harrit gives very credible answers and supports the science in the paper very well.

I especially enjoyed his answer to the last question.

Does he speak english?

Any idea how many people saw this when it was broadcast?

Thanks for posting this, keep up the great work!

Be well.

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

Answers

Dr. Harrit does speak English quite proficiently.

I would estimate 50-100,000 people saw the 10:30pm segment, but its a bit of a guess. There were also a large number of newspaper articles. It will be interesting to see if there is any follow-up, or if interest dies out. I hope we can create a feedback loop whereby the coverage in Denmark emboldens journalists in other countries, and then international interest feeds back into Denmark. It's not as if the population is buzzing here about 9/11, but hopefully this can propel us in the right direction. More people are noticing, that is clear from the comments sections following various newspaper articles.

Thanks for the answers!

I hope that at least a few of you are writing letters to the papers that published articles to help the feedback loop.

I think the "loaded gun" phrase should help incite some new interest in Europe (and the world).

Keep up the great work!

Cheers!

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

MSM breakthrough

Niels was very straightforward and he was treated with respect.

Announcer:
"Apparently the two airplane-impacts did not cause the towers to collapse, according to a newly published scientific article."

Niels: [Answer to final question]
"I think viewers should ask themselves what evidence they have seen to support the official conspiracy theory."

This the beginning of the end of the OCT.

Other Danes who question 9/11

http://ekstrabladet.tv/nationentv/article1151743.ece

The Danish tabloid newspaper Ekstra Bladet has posted on their web site this 46 minute video with other prominent danes who question the official 911 story (all in Danish, hopefully someone will rise to the task and repost this with subtitles!)

These are what you call "Great Danes"

"...you can not fudge this kind of science."

Excellent interview! Fantastic exposure.

http://www.911blogger.com/node/19811

Refreshing

What a contrast to watch an intelligent adult conversation regarding 9/11, compared to what we find here in America.

GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

please send this to every academic you know asap

Holy Sh*t !

REAL news ! Thank you Denmark, and Dr. Niels ! This clip should be sent to every media outlet in the country, with a note that reads. This is the news America expects! After all we know we were lied to about 9/11.
Were sick of hearing about Brittney, Paris, and American Idol.
Do your job now! Or when the truth is exposed, you will be charged as accomplices!

10 TO 100 TONS!!!!

This is totally unbelieveable, this evidence should be covered
by every news agency in this nation. If this evidence doesn't
bring about a new investigation there will never be one! The Truth
Movement should now put all it's efforts behind this evidence.
This might be the only thing that could AWAKE this country!

Indeed the biggest 9/11 breakthrough in Danish MSM

I have stumbled upon two newspaper articles and a TV interview without even looking for it. One can only hope that the journalists will keep covering this now, and continue with the tough questions that so far has mostly been raised by volunteers from the public, although it really should be the journalists' job to investigate matters like this. Great job, Harrit et al!

Finally

Someone with the balls to tell the truth. I would like to see someone debunk this one. Popular Mechanics, are you listening?

Where is the cowardly US corporate media?

An excellent interview. Well done Niels Harrit! Thankyou Denmark! 9/11 Truth needs more people like you, so badly.

It would be so great if our media was open and free enough to be able to handle and disseminate some rare doses of reality and truth, like the Danish media has, for the long-suffering American people. In contrast, the US propagandized corporate media is infested with kneepad totin' weasels (Bill O'Reilly, Wolf Blitzer et al), who, in true Sovietized fashion, toe the official line by default, not just on 9/11 but *everything* else, as if government-issued material was religious in nature, and thus not open to question. The whole subject of 9/11 has been *infantilised* by the mainstream corporate media, who seem terminally unable to make any coherent comment about the subject, and perpetually knee-jerk with "conspiracy theory" accusations, in true Pavlovian form, every time 9/11 is mentioned in a controversial context. They display about the same degree of intelligence as Pavlov's drooling dog.

There is a big difference with this new, solid, scientific material: It eliminates, for good, the endless speculation regarding the reason for the Twin Towers and WTC7's demise. Peer reviewed scientific analysis has at last come to the rescue of common sense, and thus it is now inappropriate for anyone to get into that weary old junior-high school "conspiracy theory" territory, as regards the cause of the collapses: that favorite weapon of official story supporters has now been blown out of the ballpark into the nearest landfill. If the "Axis of Weasel" want to compete in an argument, they'll have to find a different approach...

The speculation has now moved to areas such as... "how did the (nano)thermite get in the towers, who authorized this operation, when was it carried out, how much was in there, who manufactured it, who supplied it, how did they evade security in the buildings, who was running the demolition sequence on the morning of 9/11, and from where, and how was this coordinated with the plane strikes"? Lots of questions, waiting for evidence as powerful as the thermite findings... and from credible whistle blowers.

There are people out there who know what happened, and had "hands on" involvement. It is well past the time for them to come forward, step up to the plate, do the right thing and help their country (and the world)..... criminal charges or otherwise.

Transcript

The below transcript was formatted in a manner convenient to post elsewhere.

####################

The first author on this recent paper,[1] Niels H. Harrit, Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and expert in nano-chemistry, has given the below interview at approximately 10:30 p.m. April 6, 2009 on TV 2 News in Denmark ( http://news.tv2.dk ), one of the two most respected Danish television channels:

"A danish scientist Niels Harrit, on nano-thermite in the WTC dust ( english subtitles )," Enderlein79, April 10, 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_tf25lx_3o

The following is an English-translation transcript of the aforementioned interview:

Interviewer: International researchers have found traces of explosives among the World Trade Center rubble. A new scientific article concludes that impacts from the two hijacked aircraft did not cause the collapses in 2001.

We turn our attention to 9/11: the major attack in New York. Apparently the two airplane impacts did not cause the towers to collapse, according to a newly published scientific article. Researchers found nano-thermite explosive in the rubble, that cannot have come from the planes. They believe several tonnes of explosives were placed in the buildings in advance.

Niels Harrit, you and eight other researchers conclude in this article, that it was nano-thermite that caused these buildings to collapse. What is nano-thermite?

Niels Harrit: We found nano-thermite in the rubble. We are not saying only nano-thermite was used. Thermite itself dates back to 1893. It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat. The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 °C. This can be used to do welding. It can also be used to melt other iron. Nanotechnology makes things smaller. So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed. When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly. Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive. It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.

Interviewer: I Googled nano-thermite, and not much has been written about it. Is it a widely known scientific substance? Or is it so new that other scientists are hardly aware of it?

Harrit: It is a collective name for substances with high levels of energy. If civilian researchers (like myself) are not familiar with it, it is probably because they do not do much work with explosives. As for military scientists, you would have to ask them. I do not know how familiar they are with nanotechnology.

Interviewer: So you found this substance in the WTC, why do you think it caused the collapses?

Harrit: Well, it's an explosive. Why else would it be there?

Interviewer: You believe the intense heat melted the building's steel support structure, and caused the building to collapse like a house of cards?

Harrit: I cannot say precisely, as this substance can serve both purposes. It can explode and break things apart, and it can melt things. Both effects were probably used, as I see it. Molten metal pours out of the South Tower several minutes before the collapse. This indicates the whole structure was being weakened in advance. Then the regular explosives come into play. The actual collapse sequence had to be perfectly timed, all the way down.

Interviewer: What quantities are we talking about?

Harrit: A lot. There were only two planes, but three skyscrapers collapsed. We know roughly how much dust was created. The pictures show huge quantities, everything but the steel was pulverized. And we know roughly how much unreacted thermite we have found. This is the "loaded gun": material that did not ignite for some reason. We are talking about tonnes. Over 10 tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes.

Interviewer: Ten tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes, in three buildings? And these substances are not normally found in such buildings?

Harrit: No. These materials are extremely advanced.

Interviewer: How do you place such material in a skyscraper, on all the floors?

Harrit: How you would get it in?

Interviewer: Yes.

Harrit: If I had to transport it in those quantities I would use pallets: get a truck and move it in on pallets.

Interviewer: Why hasn't this been discovered earlier?

Harrit: By whom?

Interviewer: The caretakers, for example. If you are moving 10 to 100 tonnes of nano-thermite around, and placing it on all the floors. I am just surprised no one noticed.

Harrit: As a journalist, you should address that question to the company responsible for security at the WTC.

Interviewer: So you are in no doubt the material was present?

Harrit: You cannot fudge this kind of science. We have found it: unreacted thermite.

Interviewer: What responses has your article received around the world? It is completely new knowledge for me.

Harrit: It was only published last Friday. So it is too early to say. But the article may not be as groundbreaking as you think. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world, have long known that the three buildings were demolished. This has been crystal clear. Our research is just the last nail in the coffin. This is not the "smoking gun"--it is the "loaded gun." Each day, thousands of people realize that the WTC was demolished. That is something unstoppable.

Interviewer: Why has no one discovered earlier that there was nano-thermite in the buildings? Almost ten years have passed.

Harrit: You mean in the dust?

Interviewer: Yes.

Harrit: It was by chance that someone looked at the dust with a microscope. They are tiny red chips. The biggest are 1 mm in size, and can be seen with the naked eye. But you need a microscope to see the vast majority. It was by chance that someone discovered them two years ago. It has taken 18 months to prepare the scientific article you refer to. It is a very comprehensive article based on thorough research.

Interviewer: You have been working on this for several years, because it didn't make sense to you.

Harrit: Yes, over two years actually. It all started when I saw the collapse of Building 7, the third skyscraper. It collapsed seven hours after the twin towers. And there were only two airplanes. When you see a 47-storey building, 186 m tall, collapse in 6.5 seconds, and you are a scientist, you think "What?!" I had to watch it again and again. I hit the button 10 times, and my jaw dropped lower and lower. Firstly, I had never heard of that building before. And there was no visible reason why it should collapse in that way, straight down, in 6.5 seconds. I have had no rest since that day.

Interviewer: Ever since 9/11 there has been speculation, and conspiracy theories. What do you say to viewers who hear about your research and say, "We've heard it all before, there are lots of conspiracy theories." What would you say to convince them that this is different?

Harrit: I think there is only one conspiracy theory worth mentioning, the one involving 19 hijackers. I think viewers should ask themselves what evidence they have seen to support the official conspiracy theory. If anyone has seen evidence, I would like to hear about it. No one has been formally charged. No one is "wanted." Our work should lead to demands for a proper criminal investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attack. Because it never happened. We are still waiting for it. We hope our results will be used as technical evidence when that day comes.

Interviewer: Niels Harrit, fascinating. Thanks for coming in.

Harrit: My pleasure.

Tidy, but transcript?

Thank you for the tidy version of the subtitles.
Wtith your permission, I will use that on our sourcepage for this video:
http://agenda911.dk/article.php?story=nanothermite_tv2news

I am hesitant about the word 'transcript', because as I understand that word, it would imply that everything that was said, was written in the transcript. The nature of subtitles is different, because you have to condense the words into much shorter sentences in order to be able to fit the text on the screen.
Of course this is obvious as you watch the video - that the person is actually saying way more words than are written, but this is not so apparent when the text appears by itself. I dunno - maybe it is fair to make it clear to the reader, that they are not really reading a transcript.
So as I see it, it is not a transcript, it is simply the text of the subtitles.
As far as I know a full transcript does not exist.

Anyone Can Use It

Anyone is free to use anything I write however they wish.

The text that I used is simply modified from the text entitled "Videosubtitles" at "Nano-thermite in Danish Mainstream-news," April 9, 2009 http://agenda911.dk/article.php?story=nanothermite_tv2news .

Your usage of the word transcript is nonstandard ( http://www.onelook.com/?w=transcript ). No voice-to-text transcript is perfectly accurate, unless it perfectly renders the physical system's information down to the quantum level: which is possible, as the Bekenstein Bound places an upper limit on the amount of information that can be contained in a finite system (i.e., the number of bits necessary to perfectly emulate a physical system).

That is the mechanism God uses to resurrect the dead. Given an infinite amount of computational resources, per the Bekenstein Bound, recreating the exact quantum state of our present universe is trivial, requiring at most a mere 10^123 bits (the number which Roger Penrose calculated), or at most a mere 2^10^123 bits for every different quantum configuration of the universe logically possible (i.e., the multiverse in its entirety up to this point in universal history). So the Omega Point (the technical term for God) will be able to resurrect us using merely an infinitesimally small amount of total computational resources: indeed, the multiversal resurrection will occur between 10^-10^10 and 10^-10^123 seconds before the Omega Point is reached, as the computational capacity of the universe at that stage will be great enough that doing so will require only a trivial amount of total computational resources.

Re: terminology

Thank you James for presenting the text in this useful format. We may as well be careful with our terminology though, to avoid any possible grounds for criticism. This text is a (slightly) condensed translation of the interview, by a certified translator (member of ITI - www.iti.org.uk), and should probably be referred to as a 'condensed translation' when posted elsewhere. Nothing substantial has been left out of the text. Some of the inherent repetition in normal speech has merely been removed to facilitate subtitling, and some complex sentences have been slightly simplified.

Covered by REUTERS

For those who don't know:

"Reuters Group Limited (pronounced: "roy-ters") is a UK-based, Canadian-controlled news service and former financial market data provider that provides reports from around the world to newspapers and broadcasters. News reporting once accounted for less than 10% of the company's income.[1] Its main focus was on supplying the financial markets with information and trading products. These included market data, such as share prices and currency rates, research and analytics, as well as trading systems that allowed dealers to buy and sell such assets as currencies and shares on a computer screen instead of by telephone or on a trading floor like that of the New York Stock Exchange. Among other services, the most notable was analysis of 40,000 companies, debt instruments, and 3 million economic series. Competitors included Bloomberg L.P. and Dow Jones Newswires. It is now part of Thomson Reuters."

More good video

A debunking of the paper:

It should be forwarded

to prof. Jones or prof. Harrit. (But I already see apparent attempts at deception in there)

Thanks though. Good find.

That's lame and old

I think all claims there were already adressed, as the german "debunkers" were running wild with these italian guy.

I think it's all in the http://the911forum.freeforums.org/other-technical-issues-f9.html

911 free forums

I'm a member there and I read those forum posts, but I haven't seen a specific rebuttal to these claims there...do you have a direct link?

(Btw: I know that Tnemec has been discussed at 911 Free Forums, but this debunking attempt brings up other objections, such as MEK's reactivity with elemental aluminum, and the DSC test being conducted in open air. Both criticisms I think I can counter myself, but I'm interested in other opinions)
