Nineteen years after the 911 attacks, the number of people questioning the official version continues to grow.
It has also led to hysterical denunciations of the skeptics by US officials and their lapdog media pundits.
The most commonly-used ploy is to declare any questioning of the official version as a “conspiracy theory”.
The neo-con cabal
Denunciation of skeptics continues to reinforce the belief that it was an “inside job” orchestrated by the likes of Vice President Dick Cheney and his neo-con cabal including Israel for their agenda of world domination (see Project for the New American Century and here and here).
The official version claimed that 19 Arabs—15 Saudis, two Emiratis, one Egyptian and one Lebanese—using box cutters hijacked civilian airliners.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed.
The alleged hijackers, absolute novices who could not fly even a single engine plane straight, commandeered high flying jets and slammed into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
One plane crashed in the fields in Pennsylvania.
The ‘hijackers’ were supposed to be “Islamic terrorists” yet the night before the 911 attacks, they were out drinking in a strip bar.
So much for their “Islamic” credentials.
But it gets murkier. The twin towers—North and South—both collapsed soon after being struck.
Building number 7, not struck by any plane, also collapsed a few hours later.
Architects, Engineers among skeptics
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.
In fact, experts have stated quite categorically that these were controlled demolitions. Among them is Jerry Russell, Ph.D., whose article, “Proof of Controlled Demolition at WTC”, explains this in detail.
The official version claims that burning fuel from planes caused the buildings’ steel structure to melt causing their collapse.
Dr Russell, however, is adamant: “Fires do not destroy skyscrapers. Never in the history of steel frame structures has a single one been destroyed by fire.”
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?
Besides, the first plane (let us accept the official version that these were planes) struck the World Trade Center’s 110-story North Tower between the 94th to the 98th floors.
The second plane slammed into the 78th to the 84th floors of the 110-story 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.
While one could accept that the floors above where the planes struck would collapse but how did all the floors below right to the basement collapse?
The fire theory also does not stand scrutiny.
No fire has ever caused the collapse of any building anywhere in the world, before or after the 911 events.
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.
‘The dancing Israelis’
And then there is the story of five Israelis dancing and filming when the Twin Towers were hit.
How did they happen to be there at the very time when the towers were struck, ready with cameras in hand?
Maria, a New Jersey resident looking at the World Trade Centre towers from her apartment, saw a van and five Israelis below.
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?
Muslims in the US arrested en masse
In the aftermath of 911, thousands of innocent Muslims were rounded up in the US and brutalized in prisons. Some died under torture.
The US then launched its so-called war on terror that has so far killed more than 27 million people worldwide, according to Dr. Gideon Polya.
He has described it as the ‘Post-911 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide’.
The notorious torture camp at Guantanamo Bay is also the outcome of the US’ so-called war on terror.
Starting with its war on Afghanistan, the US also attacked Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia and was on its way to attacking Iran but for its successive military failures.
To this day, the real perpetrators of the 911 attacks remain a mystery.
Perhaps, 50 to 100 years from today, the truth will emerge, like America’s earlier crimes and false flags.
