FOX News Presents WTC 7
Recently, two prominent articles were published – in opposing veins: “NPR & Trust in Government,” by Robert Shetterly (04/19), which called out NPR for allowing the propaganda operative Philip Zelikow to “frame [a] discussion” on “Trust in government,” while failing to note his long record of purposeful (world stage) obfuscation, including a treacherous role in the area of WTC 7, and “Shame On Jesse Ventura!,” by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro (another operative) (04/21), who asserts “that [Larry] Silverstein planned to use controlled demolition on WTC 7” – as if it’s common knowledge/no big deal. The focus here is on Shapiro’s brash, out of the blue, aggressiveness (under the cover of being clueless to the overall picture/consequences), while Shetterly’s should be read for many reasons: clarity, as a depiction of rare courage in our dominant landscape, and as a partial portrayal of how Timing works in our fabricated environment.
This is from April 23, 2010. His analysis of the Jesse Ventura hit piece on FOX News that contains new info on Silverstein's "pull it" comments.
I was reading the following hit piece against Jesse Ventura by Fox News, and as I was thinking that this has got to be the most ridiculous hit piece I've ever seen (so over-the-top that it almost reads like something out of the Onion, such as when he says he was there and saw with his own eyes WTC7 fall "silently"), I did a major double take when I read this part:
Shortly before the building collapsed, several NYPD officers and Con-Edison workers told me that Larry Silverstein, the property developer of One World Financial Center was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.
Now, of course, the author's claim is that the building just so happened to collapse before any controlled demolition could actually take place.
I don't think the 911blogger community needs to be reminded that a controlled demolition could not have been set up in the few hours after the attack.
Derek Johnson, EIT, CWI, Shreds NIST report on WTC7 at AE911Truth Event in Austin, Texas, on March 20, 2010, intro by Alex Jones
Derek Johnson, a foundry expert and petition-signer of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, absolutely SHREDS the half-baked government NIST report on Building 7. Derek presents newly-FOIA'd modeling video from NIST that shows animated steel beams floating and spinning in mid-air. This is only part of the ludicrousness of the NIST report on WTC7 and newly FOIA'd docs that Derek obtained from NIST. According to Derek, NIST's animated modeled version of what happened to WTC7 is little more than "a tinker-toy approximation with a brick thrown at it..high schoolers could have done a better job." What's NIST going to serve up next, Wile-E-Coyote with the Acme plunger? Below is Derek's presentation at the Texas AE911Truth Event in Austin, held on March 20th, 2010:
Today we head into our seventh meeting with a member of the New York City Council. Your phone calls and faxes made this meeting happen, and they are making a tremendous difference in paving the way for honest and courageous council members to raise the discussion with their colleagues on the City Council. If you want to get glimpse of the action, scroll down to the bottom of this email to read the cover letter of the packet we leave with the council members.
Please remember we need your help tomorrow to reach our goal of 1,000 phone calls the City Council Speaker, Christine Quinn.
Day 16 Council Members...
David Ray Griffin - The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report About 9/11 Is Unscientific and False
Live Broadcast: Wednesday, March 31st, 2010 at 8 PM ET.
Join our special guest, David Ray Griffin, as we discuss his latest book about the collapse of WTC7, and other disturbing aspects of the events of September 11th 2001.
Following the September 11 attacks, David Ray Griffin moved his focus from questions of philosophy and religion to ones of politics and history, specifically American expansionism and imperialism. He as authored some of the most informative works on the events of 9/11 including, "The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11" and "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions And Distortions."
Join us as our esteemed guest helps us focus on one of the biggest mysteries of 9/11, Building 7! And as usual your calls are welcome.
Does anyone know what the situation is regarding the NIST WTC7 simulation data?
There were two terabytes mentioned back in February 2009 by AE911...were these files obtained and uploaded to archive.org?
It seems NIST also recently released 8,910 files to Ronald Brookman of Cryptome, I wonder if he will make these available? They withheld 3,370 files for reasons of 'public safety', including the 'connection models' and all 'results files'.
EDIT: The data which accompanied the letter above is available: //www.megaupload.com/?d=SQMZ94R0|http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SQMZ94R0
I can't find a reference to either data set on this site about the simulation, though there are links to two (unreadable?) LS-DYNA files found on a NIST ftp site (under 'World Trade Center 7 Computer Simulations')

“Building What?!” is a phone and fax campaign aimed at helping the New York City Council become aware of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, The Salomon Brothers building, and amplifying the request from more than one thousand architects and engineers that a new investigation be opened into the destruction of this building.
Wendsday 10th March 4:30pm at Copenhagen Universtity,CU.
A debate arranged by the influential Danish newspaper Politiken and CU labeled "One tower - two views". The topic in debate was the science behind 9/11, with the WTC7 collapse as pivotal subject.
The dueling banjos consisted of Niels+Harrit and Prof.of+Physics+at+Niels+Bohr+Institute+of+CU,+Per+Hedegaard.
Each had 20 minutes of solo presentation on the WTC7 collapse. This was followed by a debate between the duelers with questions from the audience.

March 9, 2010 "Information Clearing House" -- An editorial in the Washington Post yesterday slammed Japanese member of parliament Yukihisa Fujita because he "seems to think that America's rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax." His "ideas" about the terrorist attacks "are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion."
Fujita, the editorial added, is a member of "the lunatic fringe" who "have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad", and "his views, rooted as they are in profound distrust of the United States, seem to reflect a strain of anti-American thought". The piece closes by suggesting that the "fact-averse" Fujita should be removed from office.
Here is the fifteenth video of several in a row. Dr. Daniele Ganser is an academic historian from Switzerland who has researched false flag terrorism in Europe. Besides his publicity around the 9/11 truth movement, I think also his historical work about the so-called "secret armies" is extremly interesting.
More videos coming, in unchronological order from now on. Sorry for spelling mistakes.
The Ultimate proof NIST is lying about WTC7 Over 1,000 Professional Architects and Engineers agree that the mysterious collapses of WTC Building 7 and the Twin Towers on 9/11/01 need to be re-examined and investigated. The NIST report is proven to be unscientific and false, using evidence NIST either ignored or gathered and used itself. I used the public domain video created by NIST, available here: http://www.youtube.com/user/usnistgov http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PK_iBYSqEsc Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth: http://www.ae911truth.org FireFighters for 9/11 Truth: NFPA 921 on High Order Damage: http://firefightersfor911truth.org/?p=221 Shear Studs: A Case Study: http://911research.wtc7.net/mirrors/guardian2/sixty-state-street/construction.htm Van Ramiro's SuperThermite experiment was courtesy of Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" TV Show on TruTv (formerly CourtTV) from Episode 2 on 9/11 Conspiracy Theories.
Byron Pitts is the CBS reporter who, on 9/11, said: "About an hour ago World Trade Center Building No. 7 collapsed. A 42 [sic] story building, weakened by the devastation that had occurred earlier today... This was the one calamity that was not a surprise."
It is quite interesting that Pitts would have said this given that no steel framed skyscraper had ever collapsed from a fire. Anthony from Ohio, along with members of WeAreChange Chicago, spoke with Pitts at a book signing in a Chicago Borders store, and mentioned Pitts' report about how the building's "collapse" was not a surprise. I started to type an essay here but I just deleted a bunch of text, shall keep this short and just say: watch. :-) But basically, he maintains his allegiance to the OCT (and also the greatness of American Freedom of Press) while letting a few kernels of truth out, particularly about the present day corrupt nature of the media, here and there. He's very friendly and non-defensive, and doesn't get nervous over a bunch of truth activists showing up and raising legit points, which is at least a good thing. I wonder what kinds of things he would say on the subject at a party with no camera rolling.

David Ray Griffin's work exposing the truth of 9/11
By Lynn Margulis
I comment here on the nanotechnology aspect of Jerry Mazza’s masterful review (Rock Creek Free Press, January 2010, page 6) of David Ray Griffin’s extraordinary 2009 book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report about 9/11 is Unscientific and False.
