  • Supreme Court appointed President George W. Bush was neglect in his duties on 9/11. He said he already knew that a plane had hit the World Trade Center before he went into the Florida classroom (Booker Elementary), yet he said and did nothing when Chief of Staff Andrew Card told him in certain words, "The second tower has been hit. America is under attack." He decided to stay seated in the classroom and kept reading "My Pet Goat" instead.

  • The WTC fires were small and isolated and did not consume the buildings from top to bottom. They were reported as isolated and capable of being put out with only one or two hoses.

  • The FDNY dispatch tapes were classified after 9/11 to hide firefighter accounts of no top to bottom burning in the WTC towers. The tapes prove there was no widespread top to bottom burning of either building.

  • The first time ever that a steel high-rise building was alleged to collapse was on 9/11. Not only did we have the first ever steel high-rise destruction from fire, but three steel-high rise buildings all coincidentally fell for the first time ever. What are the odds?

  • Over 1000 accredited architects & engineers openly refute the official story of the World Trade Center destruction. They claim that only explosives can explain it.

  • Active Nano-thermite (thermate), an extremely high military-grade explosive, was found in many of the samples of the WTC dust and debris.

  • Liquid steel was found in the WTC basement, still molten and red hot for five to six weeks after September 11th. ["As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running." -Leslie Robertson, Chief Structural Engineer, WTC.]

  • WTC 1 (hit at 8:46) burned for 102 minutes, yet WTC 2 (hit later at 9:02) burned only :56 minutes, but somehow WTC 2 fell first. How does this happen, especially when the fuel burned off immediately in the fireball and there was no top to bottom burning, of either building? 

  • The Spain Windsor building burned hotter and for 21 hours straight (21 times longer than WTC 2), yet it did not collapse.

  • The China CCTV tower also burned far hotter and also much longer than either WTC 1 or 2, nearly four hours, and yet, like the Madrid Windsor tower, it also did not collapse.

  • No molten steel was ever found in either the Windsor tower, nor in the Beijing CCTV building, despite much longer burning and intensely hotter fires.

  • All three WTC buildings dropped at near free fall speed, with very little or no resistance at all, as they passed directly through their own core structure.

  • WTC 7 dropped symmetrically, just like WTC 1 and WTC 2, yet no plane hit it. There were never any reports of the emergency generator tanks exploding.

  • Dead bodies were reported in building 7, even though it was evacuated before any of the other building collapses. (Testimony of Barry Jennings, emergency coordinator for the New York Housing Authority.)

  • The 9/11 Commission made no mention of the WTC 7 destruction in their final report. Why omit details of a third building that fell like towers one and two?

  • Debris and body parts were found on high-rise rooftops, hundreds of feet from the World Trade Center. If the buildings fell downward, how did the debris and body parts blow upwards and out, away from towers one and two?

  • Officials mysteriously made it illegal for the public to photograph the WTC ground zero destruction after many questionable photos began to arise. The camera ban came by order of then mayor Rudy Giuliani. Taking pictures was no disrespect to the families who lost loved ones, as claimed by Giuliani.

  • WTC crime scene material building evidence was shipped away to China and destroyed before any forensic investigation could take place, especially when the steel capitol of the world was next door in Pittsburgh. So why ship so far away? No real crime investigation gets rid of the forensic evidence, ever.

  • Insiders placed stock 'put options' on American and United Airlines due to the 9/11 attacks. The FBI still won't divulge who made the stock calls or how they knew that these particular stocks (United Airlines and American Airlines) would be affected. Who were the investors who made these put options?

  • Fake Osama tape released to the media and the public claiming responsibility for 9/11. Tape was sanctioned by US intelligence, even though the figure in the video looked nothing like Osama and was clearly right-handed. (FBI says he is left-handed on his wanted poster. They also do not implicate him for 9/11.) Who found the video? Why did US intelligence claim it was Osama when it was an obvious phony tape?

  • None of the alleged hijacker names were on any of the airline passenger lists. United Passenger List  |  American Airlines Passenger List

  • Many of the alleged 9/11 hijackers are still alive, calling into question who was actually involved in the attacks. How could some within the government falsely accuse these individuals? If their names weren't on the passenger lists, how did the FBI immediately come up with the names and the photos so quickly? How were the terrorist cars found so quickly if their names weren't on the airplane manifests? Nine of the alleged hijackers are said to be still alive.

  • What about the reports that the alleged hijackers had purchased tickets for flights scheduled after September 11?

  • No black boxes were ever produced from the 9/11 rubble, despite being nearly indestructible, made of titanium, fireproofed and all having electronic locators. (Some news accounts claim they were found, but those reports were then quickly refuted.)

  • An airplane jet engine was found in the WTC debris that does not match the airliners that were alleged to have struck the buildings.

  • An airplane wheel hub was found in the Pentagon debris that does not match the alleged airliner to strike the building.

  • Pentagon officials described the distinct odor of "cordite" lingering in the air. Cordite is a military explosive.

  • Like Bush, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was derelict in his duty on 9/11. Rather than carrying out his explicit duty to coordinate a strategic defense during an attack on American soil, he went outside to assist on the lawn. This was clearly not his duty in a national defense emergency.

  • The Washington, DC emergency dispatch tapes are still being withheld from the public. Why?

  • Washington, DC DOT video and numerous Pentagon CCTV videos are still being withheld. Why?

  • Why were no wing marks left on the Pentagon front wall? No wing debris was found on the lawn, nor any wing markings on the face of the building. How did the windows stay intact around the impact hole?

  • How does a hollow aluminum skinned aircraft, traveling at far less than mach speed, puncture three rings of the Pentagon, busting through five very thick steel reinforced concrete walls?

  • Eyewitnesses, including two off-duty Pentagon Police officers, claim that the object that hit the Pentagon came from the left of the CitGo gas station, not the right, where the light poles were knocked over. Did two objects strike the Pentagon, possibly a smaller plane and also a missile?

  • Numerous war game exercises (at least four) were coincidentally scheduled for 9/11, all of which served to confuse air traffic controllers. What are the odds?

  • Military aircraft jets were not scrambled until after the attacks (9:35am) even though they had been launched at least 67 times, within :20 minutes or less, during scrambles from the last year.

  • NORAD was defeated three times on 9/11. Suspiciously, NORAD missed defending the Pentagon also, after already knowing for quite some time of the two prior New York WTC attacks. Our air defenses are much better than this.

  • What a coincidence that pilot guns were banned from the cockpit in July of 2001, a little over one month prior to the 9/11 event.

  • What a coincidence that the commercial aircraft shoot down orders were changed in June of 2001.

  • What a coincidence that the New York Port Authority sold the lease for the World Trade Center to Larry Silverstein just a little over one month prior to 9/11 (July 2001).

  • What fire captain spoke with Larry Silverstein and made the decision to pull WTC building 7? Was this FDNY Chief Daniel Nigro?

  • Who told Mayor Rudy Giulliani that the buildings were going to collapse?

  • FEMA employee Tom Kenney told Dan Rather that the agency arrived in New York City on Monday evening, the day before the 9/11 attacks, specifically for that event. How did they know?

  • Why was the Washington attack plane not shot down when Dick Cheney was tracking it for well over 50 miles out from the Pentagon? (DOT head Norman Mineta testified to this before the 9/11 Commission.) What were the orders that Cheney referred to?

  • 184 people died at the Pentagon. Why didn't Cheney order an evacuation when he was tracking the attack object from over 50 miles out?

  • Why were no large plane parts found anywhere at the Pennsylvania crash site?

  • Why was the flight 93 debris scattered up to 6 to 8 miles in a circular pattern in Pennsylvania? How could clothing, luggage and body parts bounce that far?

  • Why did an FAA investigator destroy all of the air traffic controller audio interview tapes from 9/11, going out of his way to deposit the recorded tapes into numerous garbage cans so that they couldn't be pieced together again?

  • Why did Bush not want to have an official 9/11 investigation into the worst crime ever perpetrated on American soil, resisting for well over a year? (Waited 441 days)

  • Why on earth did Bush ask Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle to limit any investigations into 9/11?

  • Why did Bush and Cheney refuse to testify individually before the 9/11 Commission, even though they were specifically asked to do so?

  • Why did Bush put enormous restrictions on the 9/11 Commission, such as how many Commissioners could be present and length of questioning?

  • Why did Bush demand that he and Cheney not be put under oath when they testified before the 9/11 Commission?

  • Why did Bush ignore over 50 warnings from foreign countries of an impending attack on the US, including the August 6, 2001 Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) titled “Bin Ladin Determined to Strike Inside US."

  • Why did Bush sit in a Florida elementary classroom when the United States was clearly under attack? Why didn't the Secret Service remove Bush from the classroom, as they were supposed to do?

  • Who gave the order to evacuate the White House if the Secret Service came to take Cheney away and Bush was still in a Florida classroom? Why would the Secret Service take Cheney and not take Bush? Who gave these orders?

  • How much of a coincidence was it that George HW Bush spent the night before 9/11 in the White House?

  • Who was flying in the E4B Presidential flying command post over Washington on 9/11?

  • What a coincidence that Senator Bob Graham and Representative Porter Goss (part of the Congressional delegation to Pakistan two weeks prior) were having breakfast on Capitol Hill with Pakistani General Mahmood Ahmed, the alleged "money-man" for 9/11 who wired Mohamed Atta $100,000 just before 9/11. Were these men being set-up, or just foolish and careless to be seen together with Ahmad the morning of 9/11?

  • Why were the bin Ladens allowed to fly out of the U.S. on private jets the day after the 9/11, especially when all other air traffic was grounded? Why the hurry? If Osama bin Laden was being blamed, why not ask questions, as happens with all investigations? They could have been protected well enough in Federal custody.

  • Why was the Bin Laden Task Force dismissed months before 9/11? Why did Bush stop investigations into terrorist connections?

  • Who was it that told FBI agent John O'Neill to stop investigating Al-Qaeda?

  • How could our Echelon system possibly miss the communications needed to organize such a major foreign attack? The US denied having such a system in place for years, until the EU caught them red handed and exposed the entire operation. (see also: Executive Order 12333)

  • What role did Able Danger play in 9/11? Is it a disinformation campaign to cover-up that Atta and others were our guys all along? Why was it dismissed? Did some capitalize on the convenience of terrorists ready to strike the US?

This is only a short list of oddities and strange coincidences regarding the 9/11 event.

A Real 9/11 Investigation?

Bush refused to hold a full investigation of the 9/11 attacks for over a year, 441 days. (Sept 12, 2001 to Nov 26, 2002) The Pearl Harbor investigation took only 11 days to begin.

  • Shuttle Challenger Investigation - $75-million (LA Times)
  • Reagan-Bush Sr. Iran-Contra investigation - $47.4-million. (CNN)
  • Clinton Investigation - $80-million+ (CNN)
  • Shuttle Columbia Investigation - $120-million (RedOrbit)

Initial 9/11 Investigation was set at a paltry $600-thousand.

9/11 Commission investigation eventually spent a meager $15-million for the worst crime ever committed on American soil.

The Experts Said...

Fire Engineering Magazine... "No steel building has ever been destroyed by fire. The (World Trade Center) investigation was a half baked farce."

Underwriters Laboratories... I think we can all agree that even un-fireproofed steel will not melt until reaching red-hot temperatures of nearly 3000F (2). Why Dr. Brown would imply that 2000F would melt the high-grade steel used in those buildings makes no sense at all. ...This story just does not add up. If steel from those buildings did soften or melt, I’m sure we can all agree that this was certainly not due to jet fuel fires of any kind, let alone the briefly burning fires in those towers. That fact should be of great concern to all Americans. --Kevin Ryan,

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) admitted... “the specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time.”

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)... admitted that due to “the tremendous energy released by the falling building mass, the building section came down essentially in free fall.”

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)... asked by a reporter (Jennifer Abel of the Hartford Advocate) why they did not look for evidence of explosives. NIST stated: “If you’re looking for something that isn’t there, you’re wasting your time … and the taxpayer’s money.”

Notable Quotes:

Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves, away from the guilty. --George W. Bush, US President

And I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ya know, we've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is.. is pull it. And they made that decision to pull, and then we watched the building collapse.
Larry Silverstein, WTC Leaseholder

During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, 'The plane is 50 miles out.' 'The plane is 30 miles out.' And when it got down to 'The plane is 10 miles out' the young man said to the Vice President, 'Do the orders still stand.' And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, 'Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?'
--Norm Mineta, Secretary of Transportation

I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a government within a government within the United States. The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; to the people who want to make the present century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity. That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks. ... The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States.  --Osama bin Laden

Of Course President Bush knew about the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism. His daddy had Saddam and he needed Osama. --Colonel Steven Butler, Defense Language Institute, Monterey, CA, May 26, 2002  (BBC article)

Bush Had Plenty of Warning  (including the Aug 6th PDB)
White House had at least 28 Advanced Intelligence Warnings Prior to 9/11
(Total warnings said to number over 50.)

It is said that the United States had over 50 warnings of impending terrorist attacks, yet the Bush administration sat idly by and did nothing to prevent them. Ask yourself, why?

Many now say the Bush administration did do something, they positioned themselves to manipulate and use the event to bring about more Federal power over the people and to neuter the Constitution through the use of...

  • Patriot Act
  • Patriot Act II
  • Homeland Security

Out of these attacks they gained...

  • More Federal and Presidential power
  • War in Afghanistan
  • War in Iraq
  • Never ending nebulous War on Terror
  • Trillion$ for the defense industry

And yet there are still the naive and ignorant who ask the foolish question, "Why would anyone or any group within our government possibly do this? What could they possibly have to gain from the 9/11 attacks?"
