On February 19, 2010, Representatives of more than 1,000 Architects and Engineers, and members of ae911truth.org put their reputations on the line and visited selected members of Congressional delegations across the United States. This project was spearheaded by Richard Gage, member of the American Institute of Architects, and founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. His multimedia presentation “9/11: Blueprint for Truth” has opened many eyes across our country and around the world.
According to the signers of the petition, the “official story” does not jibe with what the following evidence shows:
Each of the WTC Twin Towers produced sounds of explosions well before the collapses began - reported by over 100 FDNY first responders. These professionals also reported numerous sightings of “flashes of light,” also indicative of demolition charges. Video footage reveals the striking symmetry, explosiveness and rapidity of the Towers’ destruction. Their destruction differed from the “classic” controlled demolition of WTC 7 described below, in that they exhibited upward and outward streamers indicative of explosions.
Each rubble site contained several tons of molten metal “flowing like lava” in the basements as attested to by first responders. Leslie Robertson, WTC structural engineer, and numerous other contractors and first responders reported running molten metal. Scientists have determined conclusively that nano-thermite – an extremely sophisticated aluminothermic explosive composite - was found in the dust
The chemical signature of thermite was found in the molten iron, steel beams, and throughout the ubiquitous dust. Each “collapse” exhibited thick, billowing, pyroclastic-like dust clouds that rapidly expanded to over ten times the volume of the buildings. Each showed squibs (explosive ejections of pulverized building materials ) easily visible in all of the videos.
The twin towers were presumed to have “pancaked” down, but there was no stack of floors found at the bottom - almost everything was blown outside the footprint of the buildings in a 600-foot radius. 90,000 tons of concrete, metal decking and floor trusses were completely pulverized and missing from the debris field.
Most damaging to the official story was WTC Building 7 - a 47 story high-rise not hit by an airplane and yet the third modern steel-framed skyscraper to collapse symmetrically at near free-fall speed on 9/11 - in the exact manner of a controlled demolition with explosives.
WTC 7 collapsed into a neat, compact pile, exhibiting the classic features of controlled demolition:
- Rapid onset of collapse
- Sounds of explosions at ground floor at the onset
- Symmetrical collapse - through the path of (what was) greatest resistance - at freefall acceleration (i.e., the columns offered no resistance, therefore had to have been“removed”)
- Collapses nearly into its own footprint - with the steel skeleton almost completely broken up
- Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like dust clouds
- Several tons of molten metal found in the debris pile by firefighters & contractors
- Chemical signature of thermite (a high-tech incendiary) found in beams, slag and dust samples
- “Rapid oxidation and intergranular melting” found and documented (by FEMA in Appendix “C” of their May 2002 Assessment Report) in the structural steel samples
- Expert corroboration from controlled demolition professionals
- Foreknowledge of collapse by first responders, media, NYPD, FDNY
Peter Wells, representing Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, delivers a copy of a petition for a new investigation, signed by more than 1,000 members, to the Concord New Hampshire office of U.S. Congressman Paul Hodes on Friday, Feb. 19th.
On February 22, 2010, Peter wells received the following letter from Rep. Paul Hodes:
Dear Mr. Wells,
Thank you for contacting me about the investigations regarding the events and responses surrounding the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. I truly appreciate hearing from you, and I am working hard to stand up for New Hampshire's interests in Congress.
The tragic events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of every American. As a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, I am committed to exercising oversight to eliminate fraud, waste, abuse and corruption in government.
The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission), was an independent, bipartisan commission created by congressional legislation in late 2002. This Commission was chartered to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks. The Commission is also mandated to provide recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.
On July 22, 2004 the Commission released its public report. You can find the report athttp://govinfo.library.unt.edu/911/report/index.htm. Please know that if Congress considers any future legislation on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, I will keep your views in mind.
I encourage you to continue to contact me about the issues that are important to you. Please feel free to visit my website atwww.hodes.house.gov where you can share your ideas with me, learn about the services I can provide to you, and sign up for my periodic e-mail updates on what I am doing to help New Hampshire.
Paul Hodes + 9/11 Truth
Member of Congress
An Architects & Engineers Press Conference was held concurrently in 19 states plus Washington DC, 3 continents, 6 countries, 38 cities and 48 locations on 2/19/10. This one was in San Francisco.
