THE BATTLE FOR BELIEF : A SOCIOLOGISTS RESEARCH IN 9/11 ARGUMENTATION — MICHAEL ARMENIA
We are at war, and one of the most critical and dangerous frontline is not in Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran. Rather, it is the battleground within the human psyche. Individual and collective minds are waging psychological warfare in what promises to be one of the most intense struggles in American history, if not all of human history. How do we communicate the truth about the events of 9/11 to those who have been deceived by the operation and its cover-up in the media? Are logic, reason, and science enough?
On January 8, 2008, I submitted a FOIA Request to NIST asking for all records that relate to the fireproofing upgrades made to the Twin Towers prior to 9/11. I was recently successful in getting three new reports about the condition of the Twin Towers just prior to 9/11 released.
One report is a fire engineering assessment completed by Burro Happold in February of 2000. The other two reports were property condition assessments done by Merritt & Harris, Inc. a year or so prior to 9/11. These reports together total hundreds of pages, and I want them widely released so they can be analyzed in light of the NIST reports on the collapses of the Twin Towers. Note that the Merritt & Harris reports are very large files.

Please report any interesting findings here.
Apparently this was broadcast on a local Dutch TV station, RTV Rijnmond on 9/11 this year.
Wall Street crisis rattles dreams for new towers at World Trade Center site
BY DOUGLAS FEIDEN
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
With several financial giants collapsing - and others teetering - many experts wonder who will occupy the Freedom Tower and other World Trade Center skyscrapers developed by Larry Silverstein.
First it was the "new phenomenon" of "thermal expansion".
Now, Sergei Dudarev, of the UK Atomic Energy Agency, says the Twin Towers collapsed due to "unusual magnetic forces".
Specifically, as described by the BBC, Mr. Dudarev argues that:
"The peak in this pliability is at 911.5C, but begins at much lower temperatures, at around 500C (932F) - a temperature often reached during building fires.
The steel backbone of the Twin Towers was probably exposed to temperatures close to this, when insulating panels - meant to protect the buildings' structural frame - were dislodged by the impacts of the hijacked planes.
The roaring fire mid-way up the building heated the steel struts, and once temperatures rose above 500C the structure became elastic, and collapsed under the force of the floors above."
Is he right?
Comment: Did you know that common office fires can bring down a building? Willam Rodriques? Who is that? Barry Jennings? Never heard of him. What NASA satelite heat signatures? It was the first "global" collapse of steel structured buildings period. Ignorance is Strength. Long Live Big Brother.
About the film: The image of featureless steel structures catastrophically crumbling into a fatal dust storm was indelibly imprinted on the minds of millions of people around the world. Yet the enormous plumes of smoke, the soaring balls of fire and the sheer scale of the buildings masked the human face of the tragedy. For the first time, through drama supported by interviews and archival footage, TV audiences will be invited to venture inside the towers to follow the stories of more than a dozen individuals whose daily routine is swept aside by events that changed the world forever.
WTC dust contains steel, ABC, 19:35, 9/13
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!

Cambridge University Twin Towers Theory Debunked
Dr Seffen Paper Proven Ludicrous
By Mick Meaney
RINF Alternative News
In late 2007 a British academic, Dr. Keith Seffen of the University of Cambridge, published a new mathematical analysis of the collapse of the World Trade Centre – however the paper contains several ridiculous claims. Now a formal request has been made by Mr J A Blacker MSc IMI, who recently debunked the paper, to Dr. Chris Burgoyne, the Head of the Department of Engineering at Cambridge University, highlighting these errors and appealing for the misleading paper to be corrected.
The request points out that Dr Seffen’s paper defies several key laws of physics, i.e. conservation of momentum and conservation of energy.
Mr Blacker’s request also states:
“All the floors offered the same flimsy resistance, when in fact each had different construction characteristics, is beyond any logic as the lower floor core columns were over double the thickness compared to the upper floors.”
From Anthony Lawson, of "This is an Orange" fame.
This video demonstrates that the speed of the aircraft which hit the South Tower of the World Trade Center, on 9/11, did not exceed the design limitations of its airframe or engines, and that the way in which the aircraft breached the wall of the building was feasible.

I wish to thank the people at public access channel 12 who were responsible for the airing of Alex Jones' important documentary “Terrorstorm” on Saturday evening. I'd thought the Internet was the only place where the endless flaws and inconsistencies of the official Sept. 11 report from the federal government were being discussed.
The footprint of the Twin Towers should have been treated like the biggest murder investigation this country has ever seen. Instead, every last scrap of debris was immediately removed from the site and dumped onto barges that hauled all that critical evidence to China for disappearance.
The 47-story building known as WTC7 was never hit by a plane and had only had a couple of relatively small fires burning in it. It should not have collapsed, never mind straight down at faster than the speed of gravity.
The newest volley in the disinformation campaign regarding 9/11 is a simulation of the Twin Towers created by Purdue University. As summarized by Raw Story:
The simulation found jet engine shafts from airlines flown into the World Trade Center "flew through the building like bullets," according to an Associated Press vide report.
Flaming jet fuel cascaded through the tower stripping away fireproofing material and causing the building to collapse, the AP video reports.
"The weight of the aircraft's fuel, when ignited, acted like a flash flood of flaming liquid," according to the video.
