A 15 minute compilation of eyewitness statements about the destruction of WTC 1 & 2, including some from the FDNY oral histories released in 2005, news reports and footage from the 2010 NIST FOIA data release.
A lot of the footage will probably be familiar to you, but I used a few less well known clips here too. I made the aspect ratio of all the clips consistent, which will hopefully make them more suitable for others to download and use. Please share the video with others and I wish everyone well for 2016.
Here's a short video about the "collapse" of the North Tower. If you like it, share it.
Dr. Graeme MacQueen Interview
Interview published 11 June 2015
MP3 & Link to Show Notes: http://themindrenewed.com/interviews/2015/711-int085
We are joined once again by Dr. Graeme MacQueen, co-editor of The Journal of 9/11 Studies, for an in-depth discussion on his research into eyewitness evidence of explosions in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
"Many of us are convinced that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were brought down on September 11, 2001 through controlled demolition. But the question at once arises: if this is what happened, would somebody not have noticed? The answer is that many people did notice. There is a good deal of eyewitness evidence for the demolition of buildings 1 and 2."
Dr. MacQueen is the author of The 2001 Anthrax Deception : The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy (2014).
I have been reluctant to enter into mudwrestling events with debunkers and propagandists for what I see as blatant disinformation. I don't see these debates as productive. They are not about deepening the inquiry into events but rather fending off ever-morphing attacks by people who engage in deceptive argumentation. I have better uses for my time. I find that ignoring them works just as well and allows me to get on with my life.
However one hit piece by Dave Thomas has been the source of repeated questions in my in-box from people who sense something is wrong with his analysis but are not confident enough of their grasp of the physics to be sure. Rather than continuing to write individual explanations in email responses I have now posted a refutation of the attack on the http://911SpeakOut.org "Articles and Links" page here: http://911speakout.org/wp-content/uploads/Response-to-Dave-Thomas.pdf.
I hope this helps.

Search "engineer" to jump right to the quote.
While huddling with others in the WTC7 lobby, EMS Division Chief John Peruggia offers the following:
"Some engineer type person, and several of us were huddled talking in the lobby and it was brought to my attention, it was believed that the structural damage that was suffered to the towers was quite significant and they were very confident that the buildingís stability was compromised and they felt that the north tower was in danger of a near imminent collapse."
Here is the reason given for why a runner was sent to the command post with this information:
"I work for the Chief of the Department, I donít have a fire ground radio, so I had no
direct communications with my boss at that time..."
Both of these accounts were before 9:59 am when the South Tower collapsed.
We need to find out who the "engineer type" fellow was.
Profound Implications of the Observed Downward Acceleration of the North Tower -- Article by David Chandler Published

Destruction of the World Trade Center North Tower and Fundamental Physics
By David Chandler
Physicist David Chandler continues his insightful analysis of the destruction of three WTC skyscrapers on 9/11/2001 in this very readable paper. From the summary:

The roofline of WTC1 (The North Tower) begins dropping with sudden onset and accelerates uniformly downward at about 64% of the acceleration of gravity (g) until it disappears into the dust. This means it is meeting resistance equal to about 36% of its weight. The implication of this, however, is that the force it is exerting on the lower section of the building is also only 36% of the weight of the falling section. This is much less than the force it would exert if it were at rest. The acceleration data thus prove that the falling top section of the building cannot be responsible for the destruction of the lower section of the building.
An anonymous source has released high resolution DVD mpg2 footage of the North Tower & Building 7 collapse clips, reported here on November 1st, 2008: http://www.911blogger.com/node/18358 Also the source has allowed the release of video of the South Tower, and made all 3 available in high quality downloadable DVD file mpg's. These files are cut from source recording DVD VOB files so there is no quality loss, however the sound has been removed, and the video is edited. The source wishes to remain anonymous at this point.

Details Emerge on new WTC Collapse Videos
The Corbett Report talks to source connected to the footage
The Corbett Report
06 November, 2008
A source connected to the previously unreleased footage of the collapse of WTC1 and WTC7 which suddenly appeared on internet video-sharing site Veoh.com last weekend has revealed details about the footage to The Corbett Report.
According to the source, the videos available on the internet come from a DVD that was compiled from raw footage taken in New York on September 11. The video on the internet has not been edited or manipulated in any way from the footage on the DVD, although the 'replay' of each collapse has been slowed down by 50 percent. The source indicated, however, that the raw footage had been edited before it was put on the DVD, thus explaining the sudden cut from a close-up of the North Tower to a long shot of the entire building with the collapse already underway.
Maybe I am repeating myself - But for possible newcomers to this website I feel this is one of the most obvious evidence that the official story of 9/11 is false - and I feel it is worth repeating.
The official account of what happened to the Twin Towers is that they "collapsed" because of weakened steel. But after watching these three videos available on YouTube and VideoGoogle it is absolutely clear to me that gravity alone not possibly could have pulverized these massive buildings!
Note the ENORMOUS mushroom-shaped-dust-cloud throwing hundreds of thousand tons of massive steel beams and concrete - several hundred meters outwards as it explodes from top to bottom with ENORMOUS force!
The Explosion Few Noticed
Controlled Demolition is Visually Obvious
There have been an increasing number of eye witness reports of explosions within the World Trade Center buildings on September 11th 2001. Most notably William Rodriguez has spoken publicly of explosions in the sub-basements of the towers before any aircraft struck them (1). Many police and firefighters have reported explosions as the towers came down (2). Not to mention all the video taped 'regular people' speaking of explosions. So for what it's worth, I will highlight an explosion that is visually obvious but few have focused on.
The collapse of the North Tower (WTC1) happened after the South Tower's implosion. It was a little different than the first tower to go down. The difference was that it started with a very strong, visually obvious explosion.
