FDNY

How Did Some Experts and Emergency Responders Know the Twin Towers Were Going to Collapse on 9/11?

The South Tower collapsing

A number of individuals who worked in key positions apparently knew that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were going to collapse before the two buildings came down on September 11, 2001. These men talked with colleagues about their concern that the towers might come down, and some of them issued stark warnings about the danger and ordered people to get away from the World Trade Center.

Although their warnings have, in some cases, been credited with saving lives, the behavior of these men is, on closer examination, surprising and quite suspicious. This is because the general opinion before September 11 was that the Twin Towers would survive being hit by planes and the outcomes of previous high-rise fires should have led the men to think the towers would easily endure the fires they suffered on September 11 without collapsing.

FDNY member on 9/11 Truth: “I support you guys”

WeAreChange’s Dave Cahill ran into a member of the FDNY and talked to him about 9/11 truth presence at ground zero this 10th anniversary of 9/11. There was countless other firefighters down at ground zero who supported us. Many of whom did not want to publicly come out, so we have to thank this man's courage for speaking with us.

FDNY 9/11 Reports: WTC 7 'Collapse' Foreknowledge

These are quotes that reveal foreknowledge of the collapse of WTC 7- from FDNY reports in the 9/11 Commission records, in Box 18 of the Team 9 (aka Team 8)/New York City Series.

"Ordered to evacuate 7 WTC because of collapse hazard." (pg 2)

Interview with Michele Little

My interview with Michele Little, the sister of fallen firefighter David Weiss from Rescue One.

She is an amazing woman and a great friend, and I'm honored to have her in my life. A lot has happened since we first met at the Los Angeles 9/11 Truth Convention in 2006.

Her organization, Unite in Peace, can be found here.

FDNY - Explosions

I've been building an online portfolio of all my work, and this was among the things to be uploaded. I figured I'd post it on here as well.

Watch in HD if possible.

A graphic that was omitted from Loose Change Final Cut, detailing selections from the 9/11 Firefighters' Oral Histories that mention sounds or conditions consistent with controlled demolition.

Interesting comment from FDNY lieutenant on Building 7, "it would be taken down"

MSNBC live video during building 7's collapse.

Note FDNY lieutenant David Rastuccio's comment at 1:20 that the building had been allowed to fall on it's own but also mentioning a plan that, "it would be taken down". I've heard others such as Alex Jones mention he had heard similiar statements in the newsmedia that day, thought I'd share this one I found.

Confirmation that vehicle with WTC attack mural was "stopped" on 9/11

http://culhavoc.blogsome.com/2006/05/03/confirming-the-exploding-mural-van-coverup

As transcribed by Culhavoc:

"officer: “I got a message on that uh plane, it’s a big truck with a mural painted of a of a airplane diving into New York City and exploding [inaudible] know what’s in the truck, the truck is in between 6th and 7th on King Street“

officer: [inaudible] are you holding those two guys [inaudible] (kay?)

multiple voices/commotion: [inaudible] fucking beat the shit out of him.

[..]

multiple voices/commotion: [inaudible] fucking shit out of him [inaudible]

officer: all right listen you need any [inaudible] on those two guys over there? you all right over there kay?

officer: “we got both suspects under kay, we have the suspects who drive…drove in the van and that exploded we have both of them under kay let’s get some help over here”

In February of 2006, the Norman Y. Mineta International Institute for Surface Transportation Policy Studies (MTI) published their report entitled: “Saving City Lifelines: Lessons Learned in the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks”.

If a truck bomb explodes and the media don't report it, does it make a sound?

Of all the events of 9/11 "omitted" by the Commission Report, is this one the most potentially explosive?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_fg7eashn0&feature=related#

If this audio is authentic, then there exist multiple eyewitnesses to the fact that on the morning of 9/11 FDNY personnel summoned the "bomb squad" to King Street, where a "big truck" (also described as a "van")--painted with a mural of planes crashing into Manhattan--was fled by two men and then "exploded". The two men were detained and roughed-up on the scene. And then...?

The mural depicting the aerial attacks connects the truck bombers with the WTC events, and was clearly meant to advertise that connection. Possibly they planned to park the vehicle at their intended target and escape, but were forced to abort their attack and detonate the bomb prematurely.

And still there's this:

Is it wise and safe to ignore these "anomalies" in the public record of "the day that changed the world", or should they rather be shoved in the face of every government and media apologist for the OCT and the ongoing murderous farce called the "war on terror"?

Verisimilitude

Verisimilitude: 1 : having the appearance of truth : PROBABLE
2 : depicting realism (as in art or literature)

FDNY firefighters and victims' families outraged over Guiliani's upcoming role in 9/11/07 Ground Zero ceremonies

Rudy's role in 9/11 ceremony sparks ire
By David Freedlander, amNewYork Staff Writer dfreedlander@amny.com
August 28, 2007

Almost six years after Rudy Giuliani became America's mayor as he guided the city through the worst terror attack in U.S. history, many of those who stood by him then are now attacking his traditional role at the annual memorial ceremony at Ground Zero.

Criticism is coming his way because he's running for president and has been accused of exploiting 9/11 to lift his national profile.

"I think it's a horrible decision and I'm outraged," said Jim Riches of Brooklyn, whose son died in the attack on the World Trade Center and who is also a deputy chief with the fire department. "Seventy percent of us are now sick because he lied about the air quality down at Ground Zero, and he was too busy raising money and going to the World Series to pay attention to what was happening down there. He should just go to a Yankees baseball game instead."

Grief, loss return to 9/11 firehouse

By Associated Press

Monday, August 20, 2007 - Updated: 06:28 AM EST

NEW YORK - Two more firefighters were dead, and once again the rituals of public bereavement were playing out in front of the brick firehouse in Greenwich Village, where a brass wall plaque lists the names of 11 men who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.

It began slowly, with early-morning dog-walkers pausing as they passed the big, red wooden door on Sixth Avenue. Then came men in blue shorts and FDNY T-shirts, grieving silently.

Soon there was a trickle of civilians carrying paper-wrapped bouquets from nearby florists. They deposited them at two impromptu memorials that steadily grew on the sidewalk. Black and purple bunting was draped over the door later yesterday afternoon. “A loss is a loss, but more so this time because it was at Ground Zero. It hits very close to home,” said Art Weber, 35, a firefighter from Clifton, N.J.

FYI TO ALL 9/11 RESEARCHERS REGARDING THE FOLLOWING FDNY VIDEO CLIP: "There's a bomb in the building, start clearing out"

For those who aren't aware of this clip, here it is...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvMABQHSS40

Apparently this video wasn't taped at the World Trade Center. It was shot a few blocks North of it - in front of Stuyvesant High School.

Below is a video clip from 9/11 of Pat Dawson reporting that the FDNY told him that there was a bomb planted near the school...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2Us6hwc5EY

A debunker on Youtube posted the following video, proving that the FDNY clip was indeed shot in front of the school and not the World Trade Center...

RE: WTC7 Corner

This video was made by Steve Spak of the FDNY. It contains close-up shots of WTC7's infamous corner along with shots of WTC1&2's sliced core columns.

FDNY Thyroid Cancer Shock

FDNY Thyroid Cancer Shock
Source: NY Post

By GINGER ADAMS OTIS and SUSAN EDELMAN

July 8, 2007 -- An alarming number of FDNY firefighters are battling a rare cancer that typically targets women, The Post has learned.

At least eight firefighters have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer over the past five years. Another five have undergone partial or full thyroidectomies after their doctors discovered abnormal cell growth that could lead to cancer around the glands.

The cluster has sprung up among those who responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11 or helped in recovery and cleanup afterward, firefighters said.

The relatively rare illness is known to affect women at three times the rate it hits males. The FDNY cases involve only men.

The National Cancer Institute put the incidence rate at 4.3 per 100,000 men - much lower than the eight cases among approximately 11,000 firefighters on the FDNY force on 9/11.
