Building Seven

The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7 coverThe 9/11 truth movement keeps getting stronger. And the movement's assault on the establishment's preferred narrative, after eight years, has reduced it to a risible absurdity. An abundance of irrefutable scientific evidence exists. The problem remains, however, of getting people to turn their attention from special effects to reality. Many people, for many reasons, really want to believe that the wrong things are true. To help reawaken their critical faculties we have David Ray Griffin's latest book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7, which rips out the foundation, so to speak, of official dogma. I'm always delighted to talk with David and I always learn a lot. Total runtime an hour and eight minutes. Imprimisque hominis est propria veri inquisitio atque investigatio.

You have a wonderful voice a determinate sense of discourse.

Thank you for the artfully pleasant conversation.

The bits of unexploded nano-thermite found in all of the dust samples by the authors of the peer reviewed paper on active thermitc material in 9/11 dust, may also be found in the lungs of many sick, dead and dying victims who had the misfortune of breathing in the dust.

I believe there was a nun who was sick from this dust, who wanted an autopsy done. This active thermitic material should be looked for at autopsy, or perhaps after a double lung transplant.

I would like Griffin, at some point, to comment on the continued refusal for prominent high profile "progressive" commentators and journalists (I am thinking particularly of Amy Goodman) to deal with this issue. I mean beyond mere mention that a Truth Movement exists.

As an engineer (electrical), I always find the details of these interviews fascinating, such as if WTC7 fell in free fall for 2.25 seconds, that means it fell 80 feet (!!!) (distance = 1/2 accel*time^2) before encountering any resistance. I agree it is effectively impossible for fire to gut the building to an extent that this could be possible, only removing 80 feet worth of supporting columns explosively and simultaneously could allow this to happen. Isn't it interesting how many carefully controlled demolitions go awry and these three uncontrolled massive building failures caused very little excess damage (compared to what could have happened).

These items always cause me to revisit my core belief that US Government agencies could not plan, implement, and carry out such a massive operation secretly and have it remain secret. However, each time I revisit it, this belief is weakened and will eventually collapse putting me officially into the skeptic column. I am drifting to the idea that AQ planned and carried out the attack but someone knew about it and made sure the WTC buildings failed completely and spectacularly for the media to replay over and over. However, how this was done and how the requisite explosives/thermite were placed ahead of time and not noticed are not trivial details.

Am I surprised that NIST glossed over any details that did not support "natural" building failure? Hardly. This is a scandal/cover-up that makes Watergate pale in comparison and, unfortunately, the guilty are winning (so far).

I recommend that Andy views the documentary "Fabled Enemies" (linked below) which covers in great detail the CIA funding of the Afghan mujaheddin (against the Soviets) and evolution into Al-Qaeda.

Also look up (former UK Foreign Secretary) Robin Cook's statement about the origins of the "Al-Qaeda" name, and (former FBI translator) Sibel Edmonds' recent revelations in a BradBlog interview about continued CIA funding of Osama Bin Laden right up until 9/11.

Then ask yourself where Al-Qaeda stops and the CIA begins...?!

Adding to Fabled Enemies, former British diplomat Craig Murray talks about false "Al Qaeda" confessions made in Uzbek torture chambers.

Apparently, the Mainstream Media believes in comic strips. A 5'2" non-English speaking Arab, with a track record of having failed all his Cessna flight courses, boards a flight without getting his name on the passenger list, overpowers a 6'3" body-builder veteran pilot with a box cutter, hijacks and flies the Boeing 757 to Washington D.C., avoiding the most sophisticated air defense system in the world, does a miraculous 300-degree-spiral 10,000-foot-decent over the Pentagon, avoids the 85 surveillance cameras and the missile defense system of the most heavily guarded building in the world, levels off at 450 mph (pulling 10 Gs!), which would have torn the wings off the airplane, flies at an altitude of 20 feet across the Pentagon lawn, which somehow remains unscathed by the massive air compression which keeps airliners in the air and by the blast furnace heat of the jet engine exhaust, hits the Pentagon between the first and second floors but miraculously misses the 10-foot cable coils parked outside in its path, creates a hole half the size of the plane, is never identified at the crash site while all the other passengers were positively identified by their finger prints (even though the ensuing fire is so hot it evaporates the plane beyond recognition and even though most of us do not have finger prints on file) or perhaps by their DNA, which requires taking samples from their relatives, which has never been reported to have happened. Yes, the media truly believes in comic strips.
