Nearly every Sept. 11 since Sept. 11, Hadidjatou Karamoko Traoré has made sure that her three children were dressed in their best clothes, and taken them from their tidy brick home in the Bronx to the pit where the World Trade Center stood, and where her husband, their father, worked and died.
This video was uploaded to youtube a little over a month ago. I stumbled upon it through a hyperlinked comment under a rawstory.com article about geraldo's recent shift in critical thinking skills. I haven't seen it on this site, so I thought I'd post it.
There's an interesting pocket of bright flame that ignites at the 6:00 mark. Additionally, there's lots of video of the mangled and cut steel beams.. .
9/11 New WTC Ground Zero Aftermath Kurt Sonnenfeld FEMA Video 2010 Release
Newly re-discovered pictures from 9/11. I was sent these from a friend who was living in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn when 9/11 happened. There are 3 pictures, one is the view of the destruction on the morning of 9/11/2001 from their roof. Another is a map showing how far away their house was from ground zero. And finally, on a table in the backyard where we used to have barbeques, you can see the thick layer of dust is. Six miles away from ground zero, to me, this is just more evidence that the towers were brought down by controlled demolition.
Looking through the video from the batch newly released from NIST. Here is a clip titled “NBC News Dub_clip16A” in a folder titled “NBC_News Dub from Jim Remberg.” In the middle of a TV interview, the first Tower collapses. The reporter immediately refers to hearing an explosion and “the reverberations” from that explosion. He repeats this multiple times, and at the end he says that he’s two blocks away and he clearly felt the reverberations. Would you really feel “reverberations” from a gravitational collapse two blocks away? Match that with my previous video here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOLsM6BS2r0) in which you can hear a distinct explosion before/just as the collapse occurs.
I noticed something in one of my previous clips (Jim Huibregtse clip_15B) that I thought was interesting. This is a zoomed-in view (and then slowed down) of the pyroclastic flow generated by the collapse of the South Tower. I added two red dots to help you locate two distinct 'white trail' ejections (see my earlier posts on white trails coming from the building pre-collapse) coming out of the pyroclastic flow. Do you see them? That seems odd, no? More thermitic reactions post-collapse?
I've been making my way through the batch of newly released videos by NIST and I thought these were quite interesting. They show multiple 'ejections' (for lack of a better word) from the WTC North Tower with a white trail of smoke burning behind them. Contrast these ejections with multiple other objects and debris falling from the tower that do not have any smoke trails, suggesting that there is something different about the 'white trail' objects. One hypothesis: We know that smoke from thermitic reactions burns white, and we know (e.g., Harrit, Jones, et al.) that thermite is prevalent in the dust from the collapses. Perhaps that's what you're seeing in this video.
In the second clip ("NY1 6 Raw 10"), pay attention to the first ejection, which falls at :32 into the video. It seems that there is no white smoke at first, but that as it's falling, the smoke starts. Perhaps a delayed thermitic reaction? Then you see more of the same on the right side of the video.

A Thermographer's Experience at Ground Zero
Jersey Infrared Consultants
As practicing thermographers, we expect each day to provide new experiences and teach new lessons. September 11, 2001, taught every American a life-altering lesson. This paper presents an account of that day by an ordinary thermographer who was working across the street from the World Trade Center that morning and suddenly found herself in an extraordinary situation. This paper details the thermographer's thoughts and experiences while making the long journey home.
International Center For 9/11 Studies Releases FLIR Tape:
Visiting Ground Zero, Asking Allah for Comfort
By SAM DOLNICK
Recently, there was a post on 9/11 Blogger here with videos released by NIST. I took the video with the audible detonations and ran it through an audio editor as the audio was very low and only worked in the right channel (speaker) and had no left channel audio. I raised the audio and changed the stereo output to mono so that the audio can be heard in both speakers.
I then added some witness testimony to corroborate what we are hearing:
There absolutely can be no doubt about what the witnesses heard, and what we can see and hear in these collapse videos. It's time for an international investigation into 9/11.
An Open Letter to Inspector General Todd Zinser to investigate NIST Science Fraud
Investigate NIST Officials Shyam Sunder and John Gross
Summary: I am writing to urge immediate investigation of Shyam Sunder and John Gross of NIST for the following possible violations in their investigations of the destruction of the 3 WTC towers in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: (1) waste, fraud and abuse, (2) making false and/or incompetent statements, (3) mismanagement, and (4) possible misprision of felonies.

Viewers choose 9/11 as biggest news event
Published: 4:15PM Sunday June 27, 2010
Source: ONE News
The destruction of New York's Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 has been voted the most memorable news event in the past 50 years by TVNZ viewers.
The 9/11 terrorist attacks were nominated by the single biggest group of viewers, significantly ahead of Princess Diana's death in 1997 and the 1969 Moon Landing.
The most memorable local events were the Wahine Disaster, the Erebus Disaster and the America's Cup win 1995, viewers said.
The votes were gathered ahead of a TVNZ two-hour special remembering the most significant news events of the past half century, which broadcast on TV ONE tonight.
One viewer who chose 9/11 as the most significant moment, Joanne, said: "It was the day the world changed forever for my generation, much the same as the World War I and II did for my parents and grandparents.
I have revisited and extended some of my early measurements of high speed massive projectiles from the World Trade Center on 9/11. The results for the three projectiles measured: 55 mi/hr, 45 mi/hr, and 78 mi/hr. I don't claim this is smoking-gun evidence of explosive demolition all by itself, but it is part of the puzzle and it is more compatible with the explosive demolition hypothesis than simple gravitational collapse.
(On a technical note, if you are looking at the numbers in the three measurements, the third measurement is taken while the video was zoomed in, relative to the calibration frame. The numbers shown have to be scaled down by a factor of 1.701 to give the stated results.)
Abstract: Concrete cracked in to chunks but did not turn to dust, when dropped 50 feet.
Purpose: To test the hypothesis that concrete pulverizes in to pyroclastic clouds of dust when it falls rapidly on to concrete, as it did at three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11
Methodology: Blocks of concrete were purchased. One block was dropped from a 5th floor balcony on to another block. The experiment was video recorded.
Result: It was found that the concrete cracked in to chunks, but did not create a significant amount of concrete dust.
Conclusion: Another explanation for the pulverized dust needs to be formally investigated, such as the presence of pre-planted explosives in the World Trade Centers.
It was also found that terrorists would not be able to purchase nano-thermite easily.

Rebutting (Again!) the 9/11 Truthers
Date: January 22, 2010
MANHATTAN — Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg will produce Rebuilding Ground Zero, a six-part television series set to premiere on the Science Channel in 2011, the network announced Friday.
The series will chronicle the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site through interviews with architects, engineers, construction workers and city planners.
Spielberg will serve as executive producer and creative advisor.
Each episode will focus on one aspect of the reconstruction — from the 1,776-foot tower at One World Trade Center to the underground museum, memorial, park and transportation hub, all currently under construction.
