We've just passed the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and now, more than ever, individuals on all sides of the 9/11 spectrum are demanding to know more about what really happened on that day. On one side you have the co-chairs of the 9/11 commission report, Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean, who have called for the 28 classified pages of the 9/11 commission report to be released in the public eye. As more and more congressmen and senators read those pages for themselves, a growing coalition on the right and left is forming behind a bill that would declassify them for all to see. On the other side of the 9/11 spectrum you have Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911 Truth) making unprecedented ground in their cause. AE911 Truth is a major force behind the High Rise Safety Initiative, which has collected tens of thousands of signatures from New Yorkers and is currently fighting and appealing various legal battles to ensure a ballot measure will be put to the voters that would require the NYC Department of Buildings to investigate the causes of high-rise building collapses in New York City, starting with World Trade Center 7. AE911 Truth has also put up a video billboard in Times Square this month showing millions of New Yorkers the 6.7 second collapse of WTC 7 and challenging them to "Rethink 911".
But for the 9/11 truth movement, one of the most exciting events is a new documentary called Anatomy of a Great Deception. It has been getting great reviews from the 9/11 truth community and Richard Gage, founder of AE911 Truth, is calling it "the best chance in years to push the 9/11 debate into the mainstream". So what is so revolutionary about this movie? Does it have new information or new evidence? No, the hype around this documentary is not because of the evidence it presents, but the way it presents it. It's not overloaded with ten thousand questions and puzzle pieces of evidence concerning the various reasons to doubt the official story. Instead, it's a personal story, a story of how one man stumbled upon an innocent question that lead him to another question, and then to another, until months later he was on the brink of personal disaster. David Hooper is a successful businessman and entrepreneur; and in this very personal film he relates how his research destroyed his world view and almost ruined his most precious relationships with his wife, family and friends.
As Hooper describes the genesis of this film, "to preserve my sanity and save my marriage, I began assembling footage to visually relay what I had found for my wife, my sister, and a couple of dear friends. This footage turned into the documentary The Anatomy of a Great Deception." Hooper's amateur documentary succeeded to convince his family where other documentaries failed. As word of mouth spread, Hooper decided to raise money to take his film to the next level and professionally release it so that others in the 9/11 truth community could share it with the people in their lives.
Several years ago, for various reasons, I decided that I would not promote 9/11 truth in the same way that I unashamedly promote libertarianism and Austrian economics. Yet, I can't honestly describe how I've come to be the person I am today and carry the beliefs that I do without going back to 9/11. More specifically, not 9/11, but WTC 7. Like Hooper, that building shattered my world view and set me on a course of investigation that would completely transform my belief system. So in the same spirit that Hooper took when telling his story, I will tell mine. My purpose is not to try to convince anyone to accept my beliefs, I've given up on that long ago. I merely hope this will help others understand my journey.
Lee Hamilton -- Vice Chairman of the 9/11 Commission -- admits that the debate about what destroyed WTC 7 on 9/11 still continues when he's asked about it on C-SPAN's Washington Journal on September 12th, 2014.
"Truthers commemorate 9/11 with Times Square ad showing WTC 7 imploding on infinite loop"
A group calling itself Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is commemorating the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center by displaying a massive digital advertisement in Times Square that purports to show World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7) falling in a controlled demolition.
“WTC 7 came down in a classic controlled demolition,” the advertisement claims. “The government says fire brought it down, but anyone who watches the video can see otherwise.” Behind those words, video of WTC 7 falling repeats on a loop.
The digital advertisement is 15 seconds long, and will be displayed on 45-foot by 45-foot screens that will be visible, the group claims, to almost 100,000 people daily — including employees of The New York Times.
As the anchorman for CBS News, Dan Rather was part of numerous breaking stories on the day of 9/11 and its immediate aftermath. Several of these reports have disturbing implications regarding the nature of the attacks and the perpetrators. Here are some prime examples:
"Amazing, incredible... pick your word. For the 3rd time today.... it's reminiscent of the those pictures we've all seen too much on television before where a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down." Dan called it like he saw it. There are now 2,300 architects and engineers who agree: www.ae911truth.org
9/11 Free Fall 8/28/14: William Binney– Former NSA Technical Director
William Binney is a former highly placed intelligence official with the United States National Security Agency (NSA) who, after more than 30 years of service, resigned in 2001 and became a whistleblower exposing the NSA’s unconstitutional programs. He is also a recent signatory of AE911Truth’s petition calling for a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 on 9/11. In this interview he talks about why he signed the petition, the NSA’s spying program, and offers some words of advice to the 9/11 Truth movement on how to pursue justice through official channels.
Today is Day 5 of the High-Rise Safety Initiative's Matching Gift Fundraiser.
I just contributed $500 because I believe the High-Rise Safety Initiative represents our best opportunity yet to obtain a real investigation into the events that took my son's life.
Please join me by contributing what you can. Every dollar you give will be matched by two generous donors, doubling the value of your contribution.
Visit HighRiseSafetyNYC.org to learn more and make your contribution. A little bit goes a long way when we are in this together.
My name is Bob McIlvaine. My son, Bobby, was murdered on 9/11 along with nearly 3,000 other innocent people.
I am writing you today as a member of NYC CAN to ask for your support of the High-Rise Safety Initiative - a ballot initiative we are sponsoring that will require the City of New York to launch a new investigation into the destruction of WTC 7.
To put this measure on the ballot, we need to gather 110,000 signatures, and to fund our petition drive we must raise $250,000 by June 1st.
This strategy is not guaranteed to succeed, but it is promising, and one we must try.
Our petition drive can only go forward if 3,000 people come together to support the campaign. Over 400 people have donated so far.
Will you help us reach 3,000? Please go to HighRiseSafetyNYC.org to contribute.
We are counting on you.
Did you know 2013 was a breakthrough year in our efforts to hold NIST accountable?
For years we have known that Building 7 came down in free-fall and that the NIST report failed to explain why. We knew that NIST’s collapse model looked nothing like the actual collapse, and that NIST’s “probable collapse sequence” was anything but probable.
But in 2013, NIST’s explanation went from highly improbable to absolutely impossible, thanks to the discovery that NIST deliberately omitted critical structural features from its model – features that make the supposed collapse initiation impossible. With this new discovery, we have the evidence to prove definitively that Building 7 could not have collapsed as NIST says it did.
In an interview conducted by OpEdNews.com founder Rob Kall and posted Jan. 22, 2014, entitled "Whistleblower Former NSA Exec Thomas Drake On Obama's Speech, Bengazi, 911 and more- part 1 (&2), Thomas Drake makes the claim that WTC 7 was brought down because of the damage it received from the destruction of the twin towers. In an interview spanning many topics from Benghazi to 9/11 foreknowledge, Mr Drake is asked specifically about the destruction of the WTC complex. He was asked around the 50:00 mark of part 1. However, his evaded responding until just after the 24:00 mark of part 2. He states he remains unconvinced and adamantly proclaims there is "no evidence" that the twin towers were brought down by controlled demolition. But in a stunning admission he adds quote "...and building 7, by the way, came down in part..they had to bring it down because it was severely damaged from the towers falling"
The text below was contained in an email action alert received this evening (Dec 23rd) from http://www.ae911truth.org :
Tell the NY TImes:
The Evidence Isn't Hard to Find...If You Just Look
Yesterday New York Times Chief Washington Correspondent David Sanger was the guest on CSPAN’s Washington Journal, where he had this to say about Building 7’s collapse:
“We have not found any evidence so far – that doesn’t mean there’s none there – but we’ve not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes that flew into them.”
Sanger was responding to a question from a caller who wanted to know why, despite the massive billboard standing right outside the New York Times Building, the paper of record had failed to “fairly and objectively cover this crucial issue.”
Now with a senior representative of the New York Times on the record saying, “We’ve not found any evidence so far,” it is time to let Sanger and the editors know that the evidence is there. All they need to do is look and they’ll easily find it. Contact the NY Times Today!
Last week over 1,000 people contacted the BBC in response to our action alert regarding the BBC’s one-sided article on the ReThink911 campaign. Let’s surpass that level of support today. Please take 2 minutes right now to contact David Sanger and the NY Times editors. Just copy-paste the letter below, or write your own. Please be sure to Bcc us at AE911Truth so that we can keep a count of how many emails are sent.
Dear Mr. Sanger and Editors of the New York Times,
On Sunday, December 23, 2013, you, Mr. Sanger, told a caller on CSPAN’s Washington Journal that the New York Times had not found any evidence so far to suggest that the collapse of WTC Building 7 was caused by anything other than an indirect result of the airplanes flying into the Twin Towers. I am writing to tell you that the evidence is indeed there, and I urge you to look into it. 2,100 architects and engineers have signed a petition at AE911Truth.org calling for a new investigation based on this evidence. The following points are just a few from among the growing body of evidence that overwhelmingly supports the conclusion that Building 7 came down by controlled demolition.
Building 7 accelerated downward at absolute free-fall for the first few seconds of its 7-second symmetrical collapse.
However, a building cannot undergo free-fall if it is meeting any resistance from any of the columns below it, as any resistance would slow the building’s descent.
Therefore, the lower section of the building could not have been “crushed” by the upper freely falling section.
The destruction of at least 8 stories of the lower section of the building had to have been accomplished by other means, i.e. explosives or incendiaries, to allow the upper section of the building to fall through it in free-fall. Learn more about the free-fall of Building 7.
As you well understand, the implications of the controlled demolition of Building 7 are extraordinary, since it is integral to the 9/11 events, and therefore the question of what happened to Building 7 is of the greatest importance. I thank you in advance for taking the time to seriously examine this crucial issue.
Thank you as always for your tremendous support.!

|AUGUST 7, 2013|
Dear Friends and Supporters of ReThink911,
We did it!
Yesterday, the ReThink911 campaign reached its fundraising goal of $225,000. Thanks to you, eleven cities and countless millions throughout the world will come to learn about the freefall destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 this September. Your commitment, generosity, and faith in our vision are what have brought us to this point. On behalf of everyone at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and all of the ReThink911 coalition members, I want you to know that we are eternally grateful for the very generous support that you have shown.
Our fundraising this past week was so successful that in just five days we were able to raise the final $25,000 we needed—and then some! The additional $2,300 we raised up through yesterday will now be used as the seed money for the next all-important piece of our September efforts: a new Public Opinion Poll to be officially released in the week leading up to September 11th.
Gerry B. is a 9/11 activist and researcher from Scotland who, with the help of others, has made a series of short videos that take apart NIST's investigation of World Trade Center Building 7′s destruction. In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall he discusses his research. Plus news of more 9/11 Truth graffiti in Connecticut and a senior editor from Popular Mechanics gets 9/11 controlled demolition calls on Washington Journal.

Dr. Lance deHaven-Smith is a professor in the Reubin O'D. Askew School of Public Administration and Policy at Florida State University. He received his B.A. degree from the University of Georgia, summa cum laude, and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the Ohio State University.
In a 2006 peer-reviewed journal article, he coined the term "state crimes against democracy" (SCAD) to delineate a crime category for Watergate, Iran-Contra, Plame-gate, and other conspiracies in high office. SCAD research has been highlighted in special issues of American Behavioral Scientist (February 2010) and Public Integrity (June 2011). Dr. deHaven-Smith's new book, Conspiracy Theory in America, was published in April 2013 by the University of Texas Press.
In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall he talks with Andy Steele about the term "conspiracy theory" and how it's been used by the intelligence and media establishment to attack skeptical inquiries from the public into major events like 9/11.
