America’s official version of 911 collapses under closer scrutiny!

Crescent International

It is now routine to indulge in breast-beating and jingoistic rhetoric against “Muslim terrorists” on the anniversary of 911.

This year, however, the commemorations have been somewhat subdued.

Muslims have been superseded on the American totem pole of hated groups by such other entities as Russia and China.

The war in Ukraine provides ready proof.

Besides, how much mileage can be extracted by beating and killing Muslims although the zionists would want this to continue.

Further, news channels are saturated with news about the death of the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

The events of 911 are old news.

In the 21 years since the attacks of 911, the list of skeptics has grown exponentially.

So have hysterical denunciations of the skeptics by US officials and their lapdog media outlets.

The most commonly-used ploy is to declare any questioning of the official version as a “conspiracy theory”.

Some questions, however, scream out for answers. They are not forthcoming.

1: Why were no air force planes scrambled to find out why four commercial airliners went off course from their assigned flight paths in the crowded skies of the United States on that fateful morning?

It is standard operating procedure to scramble air force planes within 20 minutes if a commercial airliner has veered off its assigned flight path.

2: Two buildings of the World Trade Center were struck, allegedly by planes.

Why three buildings, including Building No. 7—a 49-storey building that was not even hit by a plane—collapsed?

3: It is alleged that the twin towers collapsed because of heat generated by jet fuel when the planes struck the twin towers.

Jerry Russell, Ph.D., in his article, “Proof of Controlled Demolition at WTC”, challenges the burning fuel theory.

“Fires do not destroy skyscrapers. Never in the history of steel frame structures has a single one been destroyed by fire,” explains Dr Russell.

The maximum temperature that burning fuel produces is around 800° to 1500°F.

Steel melts at around 2750°F.

So, how did the steel melt at a much lower temperature?

4: The first plane (let us accept the official version that these were planes) struck the World Trade Center’s 110-storey North Tower between the 94th to the 98th floors.

The second plane slammed into the 78th to the 84th floors of the 110-storey South Tower.

Astonishingly, both planes’ fuselage went straight through the buildings’ steel structure and emerged at the other end, virtually intact!

Even the wings did not shear off.

To understand this point, it is important to know that tall buildings are constructed with a central steel and concrete shaft that houses the elevators.

Floors are suspended from the elevator shaft by steel beams stretching outward.

The World Trade Center towers had added safety features: their outer frame was also of steel.

Thus, the planes (or whatever slammed into the buildings) had to go through one steel frame at impact, the elevator shaft in the middle and another steel frame at the other end.

To come out virtually intact even after such an impact is nothing short of miraculous.

5: While one could accept that the floors above where the planes struck would collapse; how did all the floors below right to the basement collapse?

6: Why did Building No. 7 Collapse? It was not struck by any plane.

It is alleged that fire caused its collapse. Would it cause a pancake type collapse that is only consistent with controlled demolition?

The fire theory does not stand scrutiny either.

No fire has ever caused the collapse of any building anywhere in the world, before or after the 911 events.

7: In May 2017, the Grenfell Tower in London caught fire and because of combustible cladding material used, it kept burning for an entire week.

Despite this, the London tower did not collapse.

8: Thousands of architects, structural engineers and academics, led by architect Richard Gage have questioned the pancake-type collapse of the three buildings on their own foot-print.

This could only happen, they insist, if explosives were planted at critical nodes in the buildings to cause their demolition.

9: The official version claimed that 19 Arabs—15 Saudis, two Emiratis, one Egyptian and one Lebanese—using box cutters hijacked civilian airliners.

The alleged hijackers, absolute novices who could not fly even a single engine plane straight, commandeered high flying jets and slammed them into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon.

The ‘hijackers’ were supposed to be “Islamic terrorists” yet the night before the attacks, they were out drinking in a strip bar.

So much for their “Islamic” credentials.

‘The dancing Israelis’

Maria, a New Jersey resident looking at the World Trade Centre towers from her apartment saw five Israelis dancing and filming when the Twin Towers were hit.

How did they happen to be there at the very moment when the towers were struck, ready with cameras in hand?

She told ABC News that she was “struck by the expressions on the men’s faces. ‘They were like happy, you know … They didn’t look shocked to me. I thought it was very strange’,” she said.

Maria took down the van’s license plate number and phoned the police.

ABC News reported: “The plate number was traced to a van owned by a company called Urban Moving. Around 4 pm on September 11, the van was spotted…

“A police officer pulled the van over, finding five men, between 22 and 27 years old, in the vehicle. The men were taken out of the van at gunpoint and handcuffed by police.

“The arresting officers said they saw a lot that aroused their suspicion about the men. One of the passengers had $4,700 in cash hidden in his sock. Another was carrying two foreign passports. A box cutter was found in the van. But perhaps the biggest surprise for the officers came when the five men identified themselves as Israeli citizens.”

“The driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers, ‘We are Israeli. We are not your problem… The Palestinians are the problem.’

The other passengers were his brother Paul Kurzberg, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari.”

The men were transferred to jail and the case handed over to the FBI’s Criminal Division, and into its Foreign Counterintelligence Section, responsible for espionage cases.

After the Israelis’ arrest, the FBI got a warrant and searched Urban Moving’s Weehawken, NJ, offices.

The FBI found boxes of documents and a dozen computer hard drives that they took with them for investigation.

The FBI also questioned Urban Moving’s owner. His attorney insists that his client answered all of the FBI’s questions.

But when FBI agents tried to interview him again a few days later, he was gone.

The Israelis were deported two months later without further investigation.

Who ordered their deportation and why?

The Danish Scientists report about Nano-thermite

On April 6, 2009, Copenhagen’s Channel-2 Newsinterviewed a Danish Scientist, Niels Harrit, professor of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, regarding a well-researched article he and eight other scientists had just published in the respected peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal.

Through their research, the scientists offered incontrovertible proof that the dust from the Twin Towers and Building-7 of the World Trade Centre contained small intact samples of un-reacted nanothermite.

Professor Harrit referred to it as the “loaded gun” as opposed to merely the “smoking” gun, insisting that their work was based on scientific evidence compiled over a period of two years and not on speculation or “conspiracy” theories.

Traces of nano-thermite were discovered when molten steel from the three buildings, collected within 10 minutes of one building’s collapse, was retrieved and later examined under microscope.

To their astonishment, the scientists discovered traces of nanothermite.

Thermite is a highly explosive agent consisting mostly of aluminum and iron oxide, and is used to cut steel in controlled demolition of buildings, and is also used in welding and military applications.

Nano-thermite has been used since 1893, but mostly for military purposes. In the Channel-2 News interview, Professor Harrit explained that molten steel had poured out of the South Tower several minutes before its collapse.

This could not have been caused by aircraft fuel burning because that generates at best 285-degree centigrade temperature whereas Thermite can achieve temperatures of up to 3500-degree centigrade, hence the molten steel (His interview can be viewed on Youtube using the following link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_tf25lx_3o).

Using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, and differential scanning calorimetry, the scientists were able to determine that the Thermite present was of a specialized type called Nanothermite or Superthermite.

It burns hotter and has a lower ignition temperature than normal Thermite, and is produced in laboratories such as Lawrence Livermore (It is thought to be the same lab that produced the anthrax sent out shortly after 9/11. That too, was blamed on Muslims!)

The scientists also ruled out the accidental presence of Nanothermite because dust samples were collected from four different sites.

Further, it could also not be the result of clean-up operations at ground zero because one of the samples was retrieved a mere ten minutes or so after the collapse of the Second Tower.

All samples showed the same consistency.

When asked how much nanothermite might have been used to demolish all three buildings, Professor Harrit said between “10 tonnes to 100 tonnes.”

When pressed to explain how such huge quantities could be taken into various buildings without anyone noticing it, he said they would have had to use pallets mounted on trucks and it would have taken them several weeks to place these explosives in strategic locations.

He was emphatic that this would not be possible without the security personnel at the WTC giving clearance.

There have been confirmed reports that workers were involved in “repair” work inside various buildings throughout the weeks preceding the 9/11 attacks.

Who were these “workers” and what were they doing?

All three buildings collapsed in a manner that indicated controlled demolition.

This is a sophisticated operation and not many companies have the capability to achieve the desired results.

Building-7 in particular, the 47-storey, 186-meter-high building was not hit by any plane.

It collapsed in 6.5 seconds and imploded inward.

This could only be the work of controlled demolition with explosives placed at strategic points.

Fire fighters and others that were in the Twin Towers and survived the ordeal have reported hearing explosions before the buildings collapsed.

These reinforce the controlled demolition allegation. Not surprisingly, a clear majority of people outside the US does not subscribe to the official version of 9/11.

Nor indeed do many families of the victims of 9/11.

The US government has a lot of explaining to do. It can no longer dismiss such evidence by branding it as “conspiracy theories”.
