Why Doubt 9/11?

Why Doubt 9/11?
by James H. Fetzer

As the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, I would observe that our members, building on prior research by earlier students of 9/11, have established more than a dozen disproofs of the official government account, the truth of any one of which is enough to show that the government's account - in one or another of its guises - cannot possibly be correct.

Overview of New 9/11 Research

1. The impact of the planes cannot have caused enough damage to bring the buildings down, since the buildings were designed to withstand them (as Frank DeMartini, the project manager, has observed), the planes that hit were very similar to those they were designed to withstand, and they continued to stand after those impacts with negligible effects.

2. The melting point of steel at 2,800*F is about 1,000*F higher than the maximum burning temperature of jet-fuel-based fires, which do not exceed 1,800*F under optimal conditions, so the fires cannot have caused the steel to melt, which means that melting steel did not bring the buildings down.

3. UL certified the steel in the buildings up to 2,000*F for three or four hours before it would even significantly weaken, where these fires burned too low and too briefly at an average temperature of around 500*F - about one hour in the South Tower and one and a half in the North - to have even caused the steel to weaken, much less melt.

4. If the steel had melted or weakened, the affected floors would have displayed completely different behavior, with some asymmetrical sagging and tilting, which would have been gradual and slow, not the complete, abrupt, and total demolition that was observed.

5. William Rodriguez, the senior custodian in the North Tower and the last man to leave the building, has reported massive explosions in the subbasements that effected extensive destruction, including the demolition of a 50-ton hydraulic press and ripping the skin off a fellow worker, a report corroborated by the testimony of around three dozen other custodians.

6. Willie reported that the explosion occurred prior to the airplane's impact, a claim that has now been substantiated in a new study by Craig Furlong and Gordon Ross, "Seismic Proof: 9/11 was an Inside Job", which demonstrates that these explosions actually took place as much as 14 and 17 seconds prior to the airplanes impacts.

7. Heavy steel construction buildings like the Twin Towers, built with more than 100,000 tons of steel, are not even capable of "pancake collapse", which normally only occurs with concrete structures of "lift slab" construction and could not occur in "redundant" welded-steel buildings, such as the towers, unless every supporting column were removed at the same time, as Charles Pegelow has pointed out to me.

8. The destruction of the Twin Towers in approximately 10 seconds apiece is even faster than free fall with only air resistance, which would have taken at least 12 seconds, which, as Judy Wood has emphasized, is an astounding result that would have been impossible without extremely powerful explosives.

9. The towers are exploding from the top, not collapsing to the ground, where the floors do not move, a phenomenon that Judy Wood has likened to two gigantic trees turning to sawdust from the top down, which, like the pulverization of the concrete, the official account cannot possibly explain.

10. Pools of molten metal were found at the subbasement levels three, four, and five weeks later, an effect that could not have been produced by the plane-impact/jet-fuel-fire/pancake collapse scenario, which, of course, implies that it was not produced by such a cause.

Replay a few times and notice:

* The roofs dips inward
* Explosions are visible running up on the right side
* Explosions are visible in the front
* Simultaneous symmetrical collapse (all joints fail at the same time)
* Falls at free-fall speed
* Falls into its own footprint without damaging surrounding buildings

11. WTC-7 came down in a classic controlled demolition at 5:20 PM/ET after Larry Silverstein suggested the best thing to do might be to "pull it", displaying all the characteristics of classic controlled demolitions, including a complete, abrupt, and total collapse into its own footprint, where the floors are all falling at the same time, and so forth, an event so embarrassing to the official account that it is not even mentioned in THE 9/11 COMMISSION REPORT.

12. The hit point at the Pentagon was too small to accommodate a 100-ton airliner with a 125-foot wingspan and a tail that stands 44 feet above the ground; the kind and quantity of debris was wrong for a Boeing 757: no wings, no fuselage, no seats, no bodies, no luggage, no tail! Which means that the building was not hit by a Boeing 757!

13. The Pentagon's own videotape does not show a Boeing 757 hitting the building, as even Bill O'Reilly admitted when it was shown on "The Factor"; but at 155 feet, the plane was more than twice as long as the 71-foot Pentagon is high and should have been present and visible; it was not, which means that the building was not hit by a Boeing 757!

14. The aerodynamics of flight would have made the official trajectory - flying at high speed barely above ground level - physically impossible; and if it had come in at an angle instead, it would have created a massive crater; but there is no crater and the government has no way out, which means that the building was not hit by a Boeing 757!

15. If Flight 93 had come down as advertised, then there would have been a debris field of about a city block in size, but in fact the debris is distributed over an area of about eight square miles, which would be explainable if the plane had been shot down in the air but not if it had crashed as required by the government's official scenario.

There are more, especially about the alleged hijackers, including that they were not competent to fly the planes; their names were not on any passenger manifest; they were not subject to any autopsy; several have turned up alive and well; the cell phone calls appear to have been impossible; on and on.

I just received this email from archeocryptographer Michael Lawrence Morton which is self-explanatory:

This link details Dr.Judy Wood's filing of a 'Request For Correction' (on 16 March 2007) to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) regarding the 09/11/01 World Trade Center destruction.

Dr. Wood (pictured at left) has made a very compelling case that DEW (Directed Energy Weapons) were used to destroy Towers 1 and 2 of The WTC on 09/11/01. I highly recommend that you check this out.

Dr. Wood has a lot of very compelling photographic evidence as part of her analysis, by the way. Are you aware that: the rubble at the subbasements of Towers 1 and 2 was only 20 percent of what its mass should have been? That roughly 80 percent of the Towers 1 and 2 were completely pulverized into an extremely fine dust? That over a thousand automobiles in the vicinity were bizarrely 'toasted'? That Towers 1 and 2 were destroyed from the top down? AND MUCH, MUCH MORE ... Yes, there is good evidence that 'Beam Technology' was used on Towers 1 and 2.

[NOTE: In case you're wondering why I've been posting an entire series on 911 in recent days, it isn't because I have nothing else to blog about. I have a gut feeling that a massive breakthrough in 911 revelations is at hand - and when enough humans awaken to the grotesque horror of the evil scams being pulled on us, we shall snap out of our "cultural trance" - in the process reclaiming our individual sovereignty and breaking free of mental slavery - and the Orwellian nightmare of mass mind control will crumble, just like the Twin Towers of Mordor, into toxic dust, and be blown away by the winds of wholesome change.]

Well, even there's a hidden, the truth would be too deep to dig it out

Excellent article. The truth is coming out at a rapid rate. When enough people realize what has happened, the US government will fall on their own swords.

Starmandala said...

Strange, I'm pretty sure I responded to both comments above, but my remarks seem to have vanished, pulverized, pulled! :-) Okay, Freethinker, I get what you're saying - and there are days I share your pessimism about human integrity and our apparent retardation in all matters ethical - BUT it's wise not to project the past upon the future. When Critical Mass is attained, dramatic breakthroughs occur, and so it's UP TO US to ensure that public pressure worldwide is maintained on demanding a re-investigation of 9/11. Raven, I truly appreciate your moral support and positive feedback. Will swing by your blog soon and see what's cooking!

Darling darling, guess what! Remember all that vile you spewed and continue to spew on Osama and those Islamic fanatics for murdering thousands of innocents on September 9th 2001. Brace yourself girl! Osama did not do it, BUSH DID. Apparently, Bush with the help of the CIA and Mossad hired Atta, a qualified engineer, and the other 18 middle easterners to slam dunk the airliners into the towers and actually kill themselves and those innocents. It appears Bush and Osama are in cahoots because their families are linked in business, you know, oil and construction. What! Am I crazy? Darling no, the proof is in the pudding. Why do you think Bush did not kill Osama. Because they are chums darling, really chummy. Read the blogs, they will tell you and they know their stuff because it's all researched. And why did Bush invade Iraq? No, not because WMD did exist, which was spirited away at the eleventh hour by Russia’s Spetnatz’ troops, are you silly, because Saddam had a image of Bush Sr. masoned on the lobby floor of a premier Baghdad hotel. I tell you more as I get more information k? love you ..

Yo, Tommy! Thanks for the bubbly comment, perked me up. The only bit I'm not too sure about is whether there were ANY Arabs - or humans - aboard those two planes that hit Larry Sauronstein's Two Towers. More inclined to think Globalhawk remote control was involved. And that the original civilian passengers were actually abducted and inducted into top secret experiments (perfect specimens since already presumed dead). Bet there were quite a few NSA personnel aboard to ensure things went smoothly. But no Arabs, who needs Arabs except the Israelis :-)

Lovely blog Kit. You said .... More inclined to think Globalhawk remote control was involved. And that the original civilian passengers were actually abducted and inducted into top secret experiments (perfect specimens since already presumed dead). Bet there were quite a few NSA personnel aboard to ensure things went smoothly.....

Chief, I'm keeping mind open but are we seriously pursuing this theory or is good old 'Stockholm' showing up in a comedy of errors. Simply put, this theory serves to exonerate the perpetrator, radical islam, who has repeatedly admitted guilt. A classic mix of 'taqiyya' and 'jihad' if you ask me.

Starmandala said...

The plot is thick as a brick and things get curiouser and curiouser. On the surface it appears there are "Islamofascist" cells hard at work (just as there used to be "Stalinist-Marxist-Bokoninist" cells hiding in every nook), and it's easy to sniff out the sneaky hand of Mossad behind every vile and violent plot to enfeeble and terrorize the goyim (indeed, I've heard it said that most of the leaders of Islamic militant groups are Arabic-speaking Mossad agents who recruit disgruntled Muslim hotheads and turn them into patsies for the Zionist agenda, thereby providing justification for Israeli's "defensive" aggression). However,
once you penetrate the fifth and sixth veils,
you'll find no ethnic or national issues involved: the name of the game is POWER OVER OTHERS... that's right, world domination, where the few can perpetrate their rule over the many ad infinitum (this has always been the formula for mass mind control, using religious and ethnic sentiments to orchestrate periods of war and peace while those in the know invariably make a killing in the stock and property markets).

Kit, I feel a bit quiet all of a sudden - did someone punch me ..

Starmandala said...

Maybe you're a friend from my own past returned to haunt me, "Tommy Peters" and, as such, hasn't yet understood that I haven't been calling myselff "Kit" since 1992. Sounds really odd to be called that - especially by a disembodied voice I can't quite identify but who leaves interesting comments! When more humans realize the heinous crimes their anointed ones have been committing through the ages, there'll be more than a minute's silence across the spectrum of experience :-)

Dear Kit, it was the Po Kuan issue. I was a bit senile over the past days. Just wondering if you could use your ‘ice’ to amplify this.

If there is a 10 best blogs in the world award, this would win one I’m sure. Keep it on the boil, Kit. You owe Marion, you owe Ivy, you owe Po Kuan, you owe us all.

I seriously believe that the government has quelled a potentially violent mob by NOT axing them. Are you at my register when I say this ?

You may have forgotten, but 10 years ago, you gifted me one of your books which had run out. A wonderful gesture, not forgotten.

Starmandala said...

Yo, bro... I'm none the wiser as to your identity (unless you ARE indeed Thomas Peters, Alex's legal sibling)... but I do appreciate your kind comments. Po Kuan... Po Kuan... nope, name rings no bells - but Marion and Ivy, of course, dates our connection back 20 years and more! :-) CHEERS!

Tommy Peters said...

Kit, I owe you an apology or perhaps, a clarification. 2 years ago my 'folder' contained information that resulted in that cynical response up there.

Since then, going through your commentaries and many discussions with Alex, I now share your view.

Keep this thing going, bro

Cheers, Tommy

Antares said...

No need to apologize, Tommy, though I do appreciate your coming back here to set the record straight - but, my friend from a different lifetime, please accept the fact that I am only known as "Kit" for banking purposes! Please convey my love and regards to Alex :-)
