9/11 does not go away. It is with us on a daily basis. It has been the emotional rationale

for a long list of radical changes in US policy, many of which continue with us even

under the Obama administration:


  • a supposed “War on Terrorism”
  • actual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
  • possible future wars against a supposed “axis of evil”
  • condoning torture and indefinite detention without any kind of due process
  • scuttling the Geneva conventions
  • the sacrifice of civil liberties at home

If 9/11 “changed everything,” as George W. Bush said, then it is extremely important that

we “get it right.” What really happened that day? The administration made a rush to judgement,

immediately destroyed much of the evidence, stamped much of the remaining

evidence “Secret,” and implied that critics were “with the terrorists.”


If all you know is what you have read in the papers or seen on the TV News, you are not

fully informed, and you are quite possibly misinformed. We believe you have also been

intentionally DIS-informed.


A “9/11 Truth Movement,” inspired initially by families of 9/11 victims, has amassed a

significant amount of research that casts doubt on the official story line, but many people

have never heard this or thought through the implications. The administration and the

compliant media want this issue to go away, so any attempt to discuss or speak out on

this issue is dismissed as a “conspiracy theory.” But keep in mind that

even the official story of 9/11 is a rather bizarre “conspiracy theory.”

Whisteblower’s Handbook as a guide to how to get the information out while protecting

Our most solid evidence for the use of explosives in the destruction of the World Trade Center


Anyone who has presented the evidence that the World Trade Center was demolished

with explosives has run into people with psychological barriers to even hearing the information.

  Psychology professional Frances Shure has explored this subject in a series of essays,

originally serialized in the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth newsletter entitled

Why Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11.  (There are 20 parts to the

complete series.  A partial series is posted here for now and the others will be added

as they are edited into this format.)


9/11…So What?  People want to know how they can respond once they have been made

conscious of the truth of 9/11.  I get that question a lot.  Here are my thoughts on that subject.

with other building fires.  The carbon nanotubes were also found in the WTC dust.  Production

of carbon nanotubes requires high temperatures in the presence of carbon and a metal catalyst.

  These conditions are present in the combustion of nanothermite.  Kevin Ryan and

Niels Harritt have shown that combustion of nanothermite actually produces carbon nanotubes.

Analysis of the Structure of the Buildings at the WTC

Some Misunderstandings Related to WTC Collapse Analysis 

by Gregory Szuladzinski, Anthony Szamboti and Richard Johns
(That is a very conservative title.) This is a disproof of the official explanation for the

collapse of the North Tower through mechanical analysis.  Published in the International Journal

of Protective Structures.  Summary:  The energy absorbed by the buckling of the columns

would have arrested the collapse within one, or at most two, stories of the onset of collapse. 

This paper shows the Bazant papers (claiming once initiated, total collapse was inevitable) to

have fatal flaws based on unrealistic assumptions.


Overview of the WTC Collapse Analysis paper by co-author Tony Szamboti:


The energy situation in the first several stories of the collapse needs to be looked

at by separating the fall through the first story from the collision between floors


1. Constant acceleration [which we see by direct measurement] shows that the average

resistive force during the fall through the first story is equal to that which just barely allows

the initial movement and thus precludes development of any significant velocity in a natural

fall. Arrest should have occurred at the end of that one floor drop in a natural collapse.

In fact, this is a serious problem for the official story since there is no natural way to

generate a significant velocity in the first story due to heat weakening caused buckling.


2. Using actual velocity measurements, the kinetic energy available after the measured

one floor drop is not sufficient to break through the lower floor’s columns. Bazant’s

calculations show continued propagation only by assuming free fall generated

velocity through the first story, nearly doubling the mass of the upper section,

and underestimating lower section column strength by about 70%.


3. Even if somehow a significant velocity could be developed through the fall of

the first story there is no deceleration during the collision between floors, which is

necessary to generate the dynamic/amplified load to deform the columns and propagate

through the next story down (which was capable of supporting several times the static load above it).


Up to this point Bazant has not been taken to task for the first and second issues, as

earlier critiques had largely concentrated on the third. Bazant has been given a pass

concerning the velocity developed during the first story fall to be at least what was

measured, and although I had been complaining about Bazant’s extreme inflation of

the kinetic energy available and underestimate of column strength, it hadn’t been

explained well publicly.

Misrepresentation of the WTC7 Structure by NIST

Letter by Attorney William Pepper to the Office of the Inspector General of the US Department

of Commerce, which oversees NIST + A description of misrepresentations by NIST

of the structures that are key to their proposed WTC 7 failure mechanism.

Tony Szamboti and others have been investigating the mechanism NIST asserts caused

the collapse of WTC 7.  It has been discovered that in order to make their mechanism

to work, they needed to deceptively alter their description of the construction details in

several ways.  These differences show up when NIST’s description of their modeling is

compared to recently released drawings of the actual structures.  The deception is central

to an effort to challenge the NIST WTC 7 investigation on legal grounds as being evidence

of an intentional coverup. Following the letter, in the same pdf file, is an extensive discussion

of the key omissions.  This is an ongoing effort.


Modeling WTC 7
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has sponsored a major project to model the

structure of WTC 7 as a check on the modeling done by NIST.  They contracted with

Dr. Leroy Hulsey, a professor of structural engineering at the University of Alaska, along

with two collaborators, an engineering post-doc and a PhD candidate, to construct two parallel

computer models of the building and test its response to fire and other stresses that might

account for its observed behavior on 9/11/2001.  The entire process is completely open

and transparent.  The amount of detail presented might seem overwhelming to a casual

audience, but it should provide a basis for confidence in the process and the results to

anyone with technical competence who wishes to understand the issues in detail.


The September 2017 “final report” on the fire modeling and the hypothesis that fire caused the collapse

Later there will be a second “final report” dealing with issues of progressive collapse. 

Already this project has revealed that the NIST modeling was false and deceptive in many

respects.  This video has been enhanced from the AE911Truth version in that the slides

are full screen and highlighted with pointers that mimic the comments in the live presentation.

Incontrovertible / an excellent (British made) full-length, broad scope exploration of 9/11,

related events, and implications.  Most non-technical overview films have mixed good

evidence with weak evidence and/or speculation.  This one is solid.  It focuses on WTC 7,

as evidence of demolition and insider involvement, but its overall scope is very broad.  Beautifully produced.

Tools for Video Analysis

I (DC) started out doing measurements of the 9/11 videos using a tool called Physics Toolkit.

More recently I have been using a much more capable and easy-to-use

tool called Tracker, part of the Open Source Physics project.


Tracker allows you to mark multiple tracks with an unlimited number of points on a full-screen

video, and it allows you to zoom in while placing the marks. No more magnifying glass to

the screen! It also has a large collection of analysis tools. You need a little physics background

to be able to use it intelligently, but no particular background to use the software.


There may be a bit of a learning curve but if you’re interested, give it a try.  Here is a brief tutorial.


The Split

Artwork inspired by David Chandler's work


Mark Dotzler writes:

“I’m an artist and I made a piece of artwork called ‘The Split’ that

was inspired in part by one of David Chandler’s early videos.”


On his website Mark writes:  “The title ‘The Split’ has a number of meanings here, but chiefly

refers to a split with reality that occurred on that day.” (The blue Ipod screen with the “2” is

running a countdown timer program.  I love the representation of Building 7 with an old high school physics text.)

Thank you Mark.
