9/11 - Key Issue of our Time
The Road to Armageddon
Paul Craig Roberts
Thursday, February 25, 2010
The Washington Times is a newspaper that looks with favor upon the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars of aggression in the Middle East and favors making terrorists pay for 9/11. Therefore, I was surprised to learn on February 24 that the most popular story on the paper’s website for the past three days was the “Inside the Beltway” report, “Explosive News” about the 31 press conferences in cities in the US and abroad on February 19 held by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of professionals which now has 1,000 members.
I was even more surprised that the news report treated the press conference seriously.
How did three World Trade Center skyscrapers suddenly disintegrate into fine dust? How did massive steel beams in three skyscrapers suddenly fail as a result of short-lived, isolated, and low temperature fires? “A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7,” reports the Washington Times.
The paper reports that the architects and engineers have concluded that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Institute of Standards and Technology provided “insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction” and are “calling for a grand jury investigation of NIST officials.”
The newspaper reports that Richard Gage, the spokesperson for the architects and engineers said: “Government officials will be notified that ‘Misprision of Treason,’ U.S. Code 18 (Sec. 2382) is a serious federal offense, which requires those with evidence of treason to act. The implications are enormous and may have profound impact on the forthcoming Khalid Sheik Mohammed trial.”
There is now an organization, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth. At the main press conference in San Francisco, Eric Lawyer,the head of that organization, announced the firefighters’ support for the architects and engineers’ demands. He reported that no forensic investigation was made of the fires that are alleged to have destroyed the three buildings and that this failure constitutes a crime.
Mandated procedures were not followed, and instead of being preserved and investigated, the crime scene was destroyed. He also reported that there are more than one hundred first responders who heard and experienced explosions and that there is radio, audio and video evidence of explosions.
Also at the press conference, physicist Steven Jones presented the evidence of nano-thermite in the residue of the WTC buildings found by an international panel of scientists led by University of Copenhagen nano-chemist Professor Niels Harrit. Nano-thermite is a high-tech explosive/pyrotechnic capable of instantly melting steel girders.
Before we yell “conspiracy theory,” we should be aware that the architects, engineers, firefighters, and scientists offer no theory. They provide evidence that challenges the official theory. This evidence is not going to go away.
If expressing doubts or reservations about the official story in the 9/11 Commission Report makes a person a conspiracy theory kook, then we have to include both co-chairmen of the 9/11 Commission and the Commission’s legal counsel, all of whom have written books in which they clearly state that they were lied to by government officials when they conducted their investigation, or, rather, when they presided over the investigation conducted by executive director Philip Zelikow, a member of President George W. Bush’s transition team and Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board and a co-author of Bush Secretary of State Condi “Mushroom Cloud” Rice.
There will always be Americans who will believe whatever the government tells them no matter how many times they know the government has lied to them. Despite expensive wars that threaten Social Security and Medicare, wars based on non-existent Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, non-existent Saddam Hussein connections to al Qaida, non-existent Afghan participation in the 9/11 attacks, and the non-existent Iranian nukes that are being hyped as the reason for the next American war of aggression in the Middle East, more than half of the U.S. population still believes the fantastic story that the government has told them about 9/11, a Muslim conspiracy that outwitted the entire Western world.
Moreover, it doesn’t matter to these Americans how often the government changes its story. For example, Americans first heard of Osama bin Laden because the Bush regime pinned the 9/11 attacks on him. Over the years video after video was served up to the gullible American public of bin Laden’s pronouncements. Experts dismissed the videos as fakes, but Americans remained their gullible selves. Then suddenly last year a new 9/11 “mastermind” emerged to take bin Laden’s place, the captive Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the detainee waterboarded 183 times until he confessed to mastermining the 9/11 attack.
In the Middle Ages confessions extracted by torture constituted evidence, but self-incrimination has been a no-no in the U.S. legal system since our founding. But with the Bush regime and the Republican federal judges, whom we were assured would defend the U.S. Constitution, the self-incrimination of Sheik Mohammed stands today as the only evidence the U.S. government has that Muslim terrorists pulled off 9/11.

On 19 February 2010 a press conference was held concurrently in 19 states, 3 continents, 6 countries, 38 cities and 48 locations, as more than 1,000 architects and engineers worldwide now support the call for a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
The Sydney press conference (pictured above) was held outside St Mary’s Cathedral.
On today’s show Richard Gage AIA, founding member of Ae911truth.org, joins us to discuss all matters pertaining to the the 9/11 truth movement and the growing demand for a truly independent, subpoena powered investigation.
As of the date of posting, 1046 registered architects and engineers have now signed the petition.
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Announce Sydney Press Conference
Richard Gage member of the prestigious American Institute of Architects today announced that Australian members of “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth” will be holding a Press Conference in Sydney to announce their organisation reaching the milestone of 1,000 plus credentialed members. This organisation which Architect Gage Founded in 2007 is demanding a criminal investigation of the "three" building collapses in New York City on the eleventh of September, 2001.
Gage was recently in Sydney as part of major speaking tour of Australia and New Zealand, having huge success at all events. In Wellington New Zealand an extraordinary crowd of nearly 800 people gathered to hear him present the hard evidence that the "three" towers WTC 1, 2 and 7 were brought down in a controlled demolition, see www.TheHardEvidence.com . Gage has spoken on mainstream television and radio around the world receiving popular support by the public and a growing cautious support of experts in the building professions and within the universities.
When in Sydney last year Gage caused quite a stir by meeting with and being supported by the world famous Architect Jan Utzon. Utzon is currently working for the Sydney Opera House, which his father Jorn designed.
Sydney Press Conference
Date: 19th of February, 2010
Time: 11am till noon
Location: In front of St Mary's Cathedral, St Marys Rd, Sydney
Speakers Include: Dr David Leifer, Architect and Associated Engineer; Brae Antcliffe, Barrister at Law and John Bursill, Licensed Aircraft Engineer
For more information please contact John Bursill on 0414878499 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth" cite the following major points as their reasoning for demanding a criminal investigation of the building collapses on 9/11;
- The complete destruction and dismemberment of Building 7 in just 6 ½ seconds through the path of what was greatest resistance, vertically and symmetrically, including 2 1/2 seconds of pure free-fall (zero resistance)
- The complete destruction and dismemberment of both Twin Towers in just 10 to 14 seconds, which is near free-fall acceleration – again, requiring all 47 massive core columns to be explosively severed.
- Over 100 first responder reported sounds of explosions and flashes of light at the onset of destruction
- Multi-ton steel perimeter wall sections were ejected laterally 600 ft at 60 mph
- The Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking
- A 1200-foot-diameter debris field:
There should have been 110 floors stacked up at the bottom of this “gravitational collapse” (220 acres of 4” thick concrete slabs) yet no floors are seen in the photos – just a 2 story pile of shredded building materials.
- We see isolated explosive ejections of pulverized building materials 20 – 40 stories below the “collapsing” portion of the building
- Firefighters and engineers found several tons of molten metal in the debris under each of the three high-rises – yet fires and jet fuel cannot possibly be responsible for these temperatures. FEMA documents in their May 2002 BPAT report, Appendix C - the melting of steel beams, “like Swiss cheese”
- Evidence of thermite incendiaries has been found by scientists in the previously molten iron/steel, dust, and samples.
- Evidence of advanced explosive nanothermitic composite material was found in the dust samples by an international team of scientists. This substance is manufactured only in the most sophisticated defense contracting laboratories. What is it doing in the World Trade Center dust?
- There is no precedent for steel-framed high-rises collapsing due to fire.
Note: These questions and conclusions are shared by thousands of scientists; senior-level military, intelligence and government officials; pilots and aviation professionals; firefighters; scholars and university professors; 9/11 survivors and their family members; and other professionals around the world ( www.patriotsquestion911.com , www.firefightersfor911truth.org , www.journalof911studies.com ).
