Iranian President declares pre-planted explosives brought down towers, not just planes

WASHINGTON -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that as an engineer he's sure the twin towers were not brought down by jetliners.

Ahmadinejad, in an interview with The Associated Press, says it would have been impossible for two jetliners to bring down the towers simply by hitting them. he says some kind of planned explosion must have taken place.

Ahmadinejad stopped short of saying the United States staged the disaster 10 years ago. But he says there are questions the world should resolve, and noted there are doubters in the United States as well.

Ahmadinejad was denied his request last year to visit the site of the World Trade Center collapse. He says he's not making another attempt this year. He's in New York City for the U.N. General Assembly.

Earliest known video of Flight 93 crash in Shanksville, PA on 9/11

The earliest known video has surfaced showing the immediate aftermath of the crash of United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pa.

Here’s the clip, from CNN:

In the modern world of viral crowdsourcing, video and photos of even the most mundane event are available, from every conceivable angle, with lightning speed, so it is remarkable that, ten years later, new video from 9/11 has just surfaced. On CNN Sunday night, anchor Susan Hendricks introduced a piece of video from a now-deceased witness who videotaped the aftermath of heroic Flight 93 from about 15 miles away. His family has apparently just made the video available now.

CBS Report On 9/11: Ground Level Explosion Caused WTC To Collapse

Yet another 9/11 video that NIST tried to block from being released has emerged discussing bombs in the World Trade Center that led to the collapse of the twin towers, indicating once more that the organization attempted to preside over a cover-up to hide evidence of secondary explosives.

International Center for 9/11 Studies

 

September 11th, 2001 - "CNN is now reporting that there was a third explosion at the WTC probably an explosion from the ground that caused WTC1 to collapse on top of itself. Again there was a third explosion it is unclear what caused it whether it was a bomb or whether the first plane that crashed into the tower had somehow been booby trapped with a bomb that was timed to explode later after the crashed had occurred. But CNN is reporting that there was a third explosion that caused WTC1 to collapse within itself" -- Marcia Kramer on CBS2.

911 WTC7 CBS Breakthrough

(Note: This dates from July of 2008. It wasn't circulated very well, that's for sure. -rep.)

Local Chico, California CBS station airs piece on the Truth movement.

They actually presented it as news in a non-judgmental, journalistic manner. They also showed three views of the collapse of WTC 7. They get it! They showed it!

This needs to go viral. So far, it's only had 368 views. People should be encouraged to send the URL for this video or a copy to their local TV stations.

CBS News publishes Weekly Standard column on "9/11 Generation"

When did it become CBS policy to reprint neocon propaganda pieces from The Weekly Standard?

The 9/11 Generation And History
Nov. 12, 2008(Weekly Standard) This column was written by Dean Barnett.

In the 1960s, history called the Baby Boomers. They didn't answer the phone.

Confronted with a generation-defining conflict, the cold war, the Boomers--those, at any rate, who came to be emblematic of their generation--took the opposite path from their parents during World War II. Sadly, the excesses of Woodstock became the face of the Boomers' response to their moment of challenge. War protests where agitated youths derided American soldiers as baby-killers added no luster to their image.

Few of the leading lights of that generation joined the military. Most calculated how they could avoid military service, and their attitude rippled through the rest of the century. In the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, military service didn't occur to most young people as an option, let alone a duty.

CBS News archivist claims "impossible to find" Rather/Giuliani "black box" footage

The following query was mailed by an associate to footage@cbs.com

"I write to request all available information concerning the segment of archival CBS News footage that is currently available on YouTube here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_RbtEkjqIU&feature=related#

Specifically, I seek answers to these questions:

1) What is the date and time of the original airing?

2) Is there any subsequent update, follow-up or correction in the archives regarding the contents of this bulletin?

3) Mr. Rather's language indicates he has seen and intends to air a "video" of Rudolph Giuliani "holding up" a "flight recorder box" recovered from Gound Zero. Does CBS News possess video of Rudolph Giuliani matching Rather's description? If not, did CBS News possess such video when Rather announced this bulletin? If CBS News no longer possesses such video, what became of it and who currently has custody of it?

4) If CBS still has custody of the video of Rudolph Giuliani described in #3, what steps might be taken to acquire a copy of this footage?

Thank you for your cooperation and kind attention.

Respectfully,"
