Fact 1) Steel-Framed Buildings Don’t Collapse Due To Fires.
WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 were the first to collapse by fire. Some may argue that there have been collapses in the past, but they fail to point out the differences. The WTC buildings all collapsed in a manner resembling controlled demolition – at free fall speeds and in their own footprints. [The organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth documents this fully in their film 911: Blueprint for Truth: The Architecture of Destruction, which is included on our list on the VIDEO TESTIMONY page.]
Fact 2) WTC 7 Collapses From A Few Small Fires.
Fires that really never started until about 3pm caused WTC 7, a 47 story steel framed building [an emergency bunker that was vacated earlier that day], to collapse in it’s own foot print. Observing the available video footage, you will see what looks like all core columns collapsing simultaneously – evidence. Facts surrounding this event were left out of the 9/11 Commission Report – WTC 7 is often referred to as “the smoking gun”. WTC 7 housed the offices of the CIA, FBI and other federal branches. [Incidentally, all records involving investigations of government and wallstreet fraud were destroyed.]
Fact 3) Explosions Going Off At Ground Zero.
Literally hundreds of eyewitness heard and saw numerous explosions at Ground Zero, including an explosion in Tower 1 seconds before the first plane hit. There were reports of explosions at the base of the towers before they fell. Many of these eyewitnesses were seen live on TV as events unfolded and in some cases it was reported that there may have been preplanted explosives at the site of the attack.
Fact 4) Crime Scene Violated.
The WTC steel [if fully examined, could have revealed the effects of explosives] was quickly placed on ships and shipped over seas and melted down. This was an unprecedented violation of federal crime scene laws.
Fact 5) WTC Security Shuts Down One Week Prior To 9/11.
For the first time in the history of the twin towers, a power down occurs one week before the events of 9/11 occurred. This power down was for computer up grades [no security cameras] and allowed numerous people to walk freely within the buildings and for whatever reason, bomb-sniffing dogs were removed.
Fact 6) Bush’s Brother In Charge Of Security At The WTC.
Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom that provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center up to the day the buildings fell down.
Fact 7) Outspoken John O’Neil Dies At Ground Zero.
Former FBI Deputy Director John O’Neill, who wanted to investigate the terrorists that were planning to blow up the trade towers on 9/11, was prevented from doing so by George W. Bush. Disgusted and angry that the Bush administration was obstructing justice [the media reported] he resigned. John O’Neill was given a new career as Director of Security at the Trade Towers in New York City. He died his first day on the job.
Fact 8) Stock Profits From Airlines.
Unidentified insiders made millions from the stocks of American and United Airlines. These “put options” were made just prior to 9/11. Why haven’t these transactions been traced and publicized?
Fact 9) Many Warnings Of Attack.
There were many warnings of the attacks from at least 11 other countries. Insiders such as John Ashcroft, top military officers and San Francisco mayor Willie Brown were warned not to fly. With these warnings, the air defense system (NORAD) should have been on full alert – what was going on here? See the next few facts…
Fact 10) Air Defense System Fails Completely.
Whenever contact is lost with an airplane, fighter jets routinely take to the air to investigate. This is standard procedure and all pilots and NORAD personnel have orders to treat every occurrence as a real threat. This commonly occurs about 100 times a year and jets intercept their targets on average in about 10 to 20 minutes. But on 9/11, nearly 2 hours passed with no interceptions.
Fact 11) New Commander For NORAD.
The North American Air Defense system (NORAD) had a first in its history since its creation. Six months prior, Vice president Dick Cheney took control of NORAD. The ex-Haliburton CEO [who still receives a cheque from them] instigated numerous drills over that period of time including one that took place on 9/11 where most of the fighter jets were relocated to Alaska and Canada. [At this point we should add that Haliburton has made obscene profits from government contracts since 9/11.]
Fact 12) Officials Never Imagined Planes Flying Into Buildings.
Numerous key officials stated to the media that they never could imagine that planes could have been hijacked and flown into landmark buildings. Contrary to their statements, air defense and FEMA drills had been conducted in the past and on 9/11 – exercises for these exact scenarios – in the drills, the landmark buildings were the ones hit. [Peter Jennings fully reported this story.]
Fact 13) Resisting An Investigation.
The Bush administration resisted having any kind of investigation for 441 days. Similar investigations, such as those for Pearl Harbor, the JFK assignation and the shuttle disaster all took place in about a week. Furthermore, when the 9/11 Commission heads wanted to interview George Bush and Dick Cheney, they agreed, but did so with these conditions: 1) they were not to be put under oath; 2) there was not to be any recording; and 3) they wanted to do it together (to keep their story straight?).
Fact 14) Victims Press For Answers.
Known as the Jersey Girls, 4 courageous widows finally force the 9/11 Commission into existence and presented many questions. Under the leadership of the Bush administration, 70% of their questions were ignored and the report failed to address any of the evidence pointing to official complicity. [The film 911: Press for Truth on the VIDEO TESTIMONY page documents their story.]
Fact 15) Government Acknowledges Errors.
Even though there has been admission to incompetence in their duty to protect the American people, many government officials at many levels and organizations have not been demoted and in some cases, they have been promoted.
Fact 16) President’s Location Highly Publicized.
The Secret Service broke established protocols by allowing President Bush to remain in a well-publicized classroom “photo op” long after it was known that the US was under attack and that he may very well be a target. Did they all know there was nothing to fear? He continued to read to children for 10 minutes after learning of the 2nd plane hitting the WTC. When questioned about this phenomenon, his reply was that he “didn’t want to frighten the children”. Could he have not simply told the children something like, “Hey kids, something very important has come up and I have to get going!” ???
Fact 17) Key Officials Hoped For 9/11.
In 2000, on their website Project for the New American Century, many of whom would become key officials in the Bush Administration, wrote that their proposed massive military build up would proceed slowly “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a New Pearl Harbor.”
Fact 18) FBI Agents Had Foreknowledge Of Attacks.
David Schippers, noted conservative Chicago lawyer and the House Judiciary Committee’s chief investigator in the Clinton impeachment trial, claims that FBI agents in Chicago and Minnesota contacted him in July 2001 and told him that a terrorist attack is going to occur in lower Manhattan. According to Schippers, the agents had been developing extensive information on the planned attack for many months. However, the FBI soon pulls them off the terrorist investigation and threatens them with prosecution under the National Security Act if they go public with the information. As a result, they contact Schippers hoping he can persuade the government to take action. Schippers tries to pass the information on to high government officials, but his efforts are ignored.
Fact 19) Inexperienced Pilots/Hijackers Displaying Superior Piloting Skills.
The hijacker flying AA Flight 77 could not fly a small aircraft such as the Cessna he was training in. The documented last few miles of flight 77 (the Pentagon strike) went something like this… At 9:29 the plane was 35 miles west of the Pentagon flying at about 7,000 feet. At 9:34 it was about 3.5 miles west-southwest of the Pentagon and started a 330-degree descending right turn, bringing it to an altitude of about 2000 feet four miles southwest of the Pentagon. It did an almost complete circle around the Pentagon. The airliner then dropped to about 50 feet from the ground making impact (as the few freeze frame photos that were released indicate). All this without any ground assistance. Ask any experienced Commercial Airline Pilot if this is possible and he/she would tell you “not a chance” or try it your self using Microsoft’s Flight Simulator which offers both types of planes mentioned. [We should also mention that the point of impact was under construction and few pentagon personel were located in that area of the building – well planned!?!?]
Fact 20) No Evidence Of A Boeing 757 At The Pentagon.
Despite the release of 5 more freeze frame photos (in 2006) of the object hitting the Pentagon, there was absolutely no proof of a Boeing 757 at the scene [no luggage, seats, wheels, engines, fuselage, etc., etc.] and the damage, when viewing the impact area, does not add up. Numerous photographs and video (rarely seen in mainstream media since 9/11) proves it. [It should also be noted that FBI agents immediately confiscated videotape from a nearby gas station and hotel. Government also won’t release any of the film from the numerous cameras surrounding the Pentagon that would clear the air on this matter… why? Isn’t it in there best interest to gain the trust of The People? They have also told us that the plane incinerated – there is absolutely no way you can get a turbine engine that runs hot at 1800 Degrees Fahrenheit to incinerate, specifically when there wasn’t much of a fire.]
Fact 21) No Evidence Of A Boeing 757 In PA.
The official story of the Shanksville, PA crash is that the plane disintegrated and was absorbed by the unusual soil located at the site. The planes tail is 25 feet from the surface. There is little to no debris, just a large crater about 40 feet in diameter and 20 feet deep. The entire area is fenced off and very little has been recovered. Shanksville, PA mayor Ernie Stull was one of the first at the scene and he stated that, “There was no plane, just a hole in the ground.”
Fact 22) Patriot Act was prewritten before 9/11.
This 300 plus page document dismantles the historic American Bill of Rights – American FREEDOM! The law was submitted to Congress by the Bush Administration on September 24th, just 13 days after the attack. Two of the Senators who attempted to slow passage of the bill, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, were targeted with letters containing weaponized anthrax delivered to their offices on October 9. Russ Feingold was the only member of the Senate to vote against it.
Fact 23) No Evidence Bin Laden is behind 9/11.
On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.” Here is the FBI link to Bin Laden’s “Wanted” poster.
Fact 24) The Absence Of Media Integrity. Personal in-depth research is quite revealing.
The sources of many of these findings come from media reports. Independent researchers have done something the media fails to do with their own reporting… and that is connect the dots. This isn’t rocket science and the question of who controls the media must be asked. Anchor men/women are told what to disclose and media investigators are told what to investigate… plain and simple. It should be noted that 6 mega corporations control the worlds media and that many of them are tied into the military industrial complex and/or oil.
Fact 25) Bush Officials Planned Attacks On Afghanistan And Iraq Before 9/11.
The attacks on America in 2001 were exploited as an excuse for a full-scale conquest. An oil pipeline deal was prevented by the Taliban, which was one major black mark against them. The war in Afghanistan officially began in March, six months before the 9/11 incidents. Yet regime change in Afghanistan was portrayed as the US response to those incidents. And… Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill told CBS News’ 60 Minutes that the Bush administration began planning to use U.S. troops to invade Iraq within days after the former Texas governor entered the White House. The oilman no doubt had big plans in advance.
Fact 26) False Flag Operations.
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. See how similar Operation Northwoods is to 9/11. The unclassification of the document was also reported by ABC News on May 1st 2001.
Fact 27) The Grand Chessboard.
Jimmy Carter’s NSA director, Zbigniew Brzezinski, wrote in his 1996 book, The Grand Chessboard of how mobilising troops in key oil strategic regions of Eurasia would be difficult unless an event like a New Pearl Harbour were to take place. On February 1 2007, Brzezinski publicly stated that the neocons could blame a terror attack on Iran and lead us to another precarious position.
Fact 28) A Nuclear Bomb Next?
On February 13 2008, President George W. Bush declared, “At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.”
Fact 29) New Powers Granted to Government since 9/11.
The Defense Authorization Act of 2006, passed on Sept. 30, empowers President George W. Bush to impose martial law in the event of a terrorist “incident,” if he or other federal officials perceive a shortfall of “public order,” or even in response to antiwar protests that get unruly as a result of government provocations. In 2003, General Tommy Franks stated that, “If the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.” – Martial Law!
Fact 30) Dictatorial Powers Granted.
The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive, signed on May 9, 2007 declares that in the event of a “catastrophic event”, George W. Bush can become what is best described as “a dictator”. “The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government.” This directive, completely unnoticed by the media, and given no scrutiny by Congress, literally gives the White House unprecedented dictatorial power over the government and the country, bypassing the US Congress and obliterating the separation of powers. The directive also placed the Secretary of Homeland Security in charge of domestic “security”. It will permit the Federal Emergency Management Agency to force the detention of American citizens (as well as Canadians under the new security arrangements) in total violation of the constitution.
Fact 31) The Reichstag Fire.
Hitler’s move to suspend the constitution after burning his own Reichstag and pinning it on the communists, allowing him to crackdown on “liberal intellectuals, socialists, communists, and anyone who promoted the notion of rule of law, is frighteningly similar to what has been happening in both Canada and the U.S. following the events of 9/11.
Fact 32) Bush Dynasty Started with Financing the Nazis.
“George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.” Reported by the United Kingdom’s Guardian Newspaper.
Fact 33) New Government Policies Since 9/11.
Canada follows along with US government policies that include: The invasion of two countries resulting in the deaths, maiming and injury of well over a million Iraqis, Afghans, Canadians, Americans and many others; the detention of people on mere suspicion; unfettered wiretapping and surveillance of the populace; ballooning budget of our militaries; massive appropriations of funds for the biological and chemical war industry; violation of the Nuremberg Principles and thus of international law; the U.S. Justice Department’s sanctioning of torture; the merging of the Canadian and American militaries; authorization of the entry and operation of American troops on our soil in the event of an emergency which is for the US government alone to determine; and much more.
Fact 34) There Are So Many More Facts To Be Learned…
