WTC 7: Sound Evidence for Explosions

There is ample evidence, from both witnesses and recordings, of explosions associated with the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7).

NIST sidestepped investigating explosions and explosives by setting up an artificially high threshold of interest.

They swept aside any testimony or recordings of explosions that would not register 130-140 dB one kilometer away. They established this criterion using RDX (one of the loudest explosives) in a scenario that produced a far higher sound level than other possible uses of explosives to bring down the building.

Then they turned around and used sound level as the sole criterion for deciding whether the use of explosives was a credible hypothesis. By this maneuver, they sidestepped investigating the testimony of explosives or possible evidence of explosive residues.

This is just one more instance of fraudulent behavior on the part of the NIST investigation of the World Trade Center disaster.

MOVIE: 9/11: Press For Truth

Possibly the best, and certainly the most professionally produced 9/11 video documentary is the moving story 9/11: Press For Truth. This highly engaging video traces the passionate journey of a small group of grieving families who waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth of the events surrounding that fateful day.

In 9/11: Press For Truth, six courageous 9/11 family members, including three of the famous "Jersey Girls," tell for the first time the powerful story of how they took on the greatest powers in Washington – and won! Their tireless efforts eventually led to an investigation by the 9/11 Commission. Yet learn how the final 9/11 Commission Report then tragically failed to answer their most probing questions.

In this very well documented 9/11 video, these frustrated family members who lost loved ones on 9/11 take us on a harrowing quest as their initial explorations lead to ever deeper, more puzzling questions.

What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Osama Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape from Afghanistan? What has been the reason for the deliberate obscuring of evidence for complicity of elements within government?

And perhaps the most important one of all: Why, years later, are so many of the families' questions still unanswered?


Understanding the full truth of 9/11 seems to require two separate awakenings:

The first, awakening to the fraudulence of the "official 9/11 story," is a pretty simple brain function and only requires a little study, logic or curiosity. We can help a lot with that part here and it's a major purpose of this site.

The second step, however, consciously confronting the implications of that knowledge - and what it says about our media, politics and economic system today - is by far the harder awakening and requires an enormous exercise of nerve and heart. (As the Chinese say, "You cannot wake up a man who is pretending to sleep.") In other words, this part of the journey depends more on character than on maps and evidence.

Some Protest Songs with Legs - let's adapt the words and use them to our advantage!

People protest different things. But they often use the same songs. And no matter what the movement's goals are, the people in them sing.

Throughout American movements music has been a source of both personal and collective empowerment – a tool used to bridge the apparent distance between individuals, to remind each other we're stronger together than alone. Music can often reach the "other side of the brain" with our message and thus overcome resistance.

Whether activists gather about 9/11 Truth or a protest on Wall Street - music is again playing a vital role in collective empowerment. Whether quoting these timeless anthems on signs or developing their own rhythms to chant and songs to sing, the people gathering across the nation find music a necessary tool in their campaign.

With that in mind, here's a look at some of the most timeless anthems of movements for social change and how they've evolved through the years.

BARBARA OLSON Said to Call from Flight 77, but Account Is Full of Contradictions

So what really happened to Barbara Olson? The one thing we know for sure that is true about the "official story"- is that Barbara Olson is really dead.

But how and why? After all of his lies, we doubt that Ted Olson will tell us.

A passenger on Flight 77, Barbara Olson, calls her husband, Theodore (Ted) Olson, who is solicitor general at the Justice Department.

Ted Olson is in his Justice Department office watching news of the attacks on the World Trade Center on television when his wife calls. A few days later, he will recall: “She told me that she had been herded to the back of the plane. She mentioned that they had used knives and box cutters to hijack the plane. She mentioned that the pilot had announced that the plane had been hijacked.”

He tells her that two planes have hit the WTC.

Barbara Olson says she feels nobody is taking charge.

Ted Olson doesn’t know if she is near the pilots, but at one point she asks: “What shall I tell the pilot? What can I tell the pilot to do?” Then the call is cut off without warning.

Ted Olson's Recollections Vague - Ted Olson’s recollection of the call’s timing will be extremely vague. He will say the call “must have been 9:15 [a.m.] or 9:30 [a.m.]. Someone would have to reconstruct the time for me.”

Other accounts place the call around 9:25 a.m.

The call is said to last about a minute.

By some accounts, Ted Olson’s message to his wife, that planes have hit the WTC, comes later, in a second phone call.

According to one account, Barbara Olson calls her husband from inside a bathroom.

But in another, she is near a pilot, and in yet another she is near two pilots.

Conflicting Accounts of Type of Phone Used - Ted Olson’s accounts of how his wife makes her calls are also conflicting. Three days after 9/11, he will say: “I found out later that she was having, for some reason, to call collect and was having trouble getting through. You know how it is to get through to a government institution when you’re calling collect.” He says he doesn’t know what kind of phone she uses, but he has “assumed that it must have been on the airplane phone, and that she somehow didn’t have access to her credit cards. Otherwise, she would have used her cell phone and called me.”

Why Barbara Olson would have needed access to her credit cards to call him on her cell phone is not explained. However, in another interview on the same day, Ted Olson will say his wife uses a cell phone and her call may be cut off “because the signals from cell phones coming from airplanes don’t work that well.”

Six months later, he will claim she calls collect, “using the phone in the passengers’ seats.”

However, it is not possible to call on seatback phones, collect or otherwise, without a credit card, which would render making a collect call moot. Many other details in Ted Olson’s accounts are conflicting, and he will fault his memory and say he “tends to mix the two [calls from his wife] up because of the emotion of the events.”

Call Supposedly Made through Secretary - According to official reports, Barbara Olson is able to reach her husband through a secretary, Lori Lynn Keyton, twice, at around 9:15 a.m. The first call is collect and comes through a live operator, while the second is direct.

Michael Moore Calls for a New Investigation into 9/11 and Says Some Very Interesting Things about the Saudis

In his film "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore explored the complex ties between Bush administration officials and as sociates, the Saudi Royal family, and those believed to have carried out the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Today, Moore is backing former Florida governor and senator Bob Graham's call for President Obama to reopen the investigation into 9/11 after new information emerged about the possible role of prominent Saudis.

According to recent news reports, a wealthy young Saudi couple fled their home in a gated community in Sarasota, Florida, just a week or so before Sept. 11, 2001, leaving behind three cars and nearly all of their possessions."

There are many unanswered questions and they should be answered," Moore says.

He also was targeted by his critics for this film. Moore talks about how the Bush administration worried the movie would hurt Bush's re-election chances, and how he found out that he ranked second behind then-President Bush on the number of discovered plots to attack him.

NOTE: This movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, first showed us the footage of Bush reading My Pet Goat during the 9/11/2001 attacks.

Barbara Honegger, Senior Military Affairs Journalist Claims Bomb Exploded in Pentagon BEFORE Plane Hit

THE PENTAGON ATTACK PAPERS: Seven Hours in September: The Clocks that Broke the Lie

Barbara Honegger* M.S. is Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School (1995-present), the Navy's graduate science, technology and national security affairs university.

The San Francisco Chronicle commemorated the 100th anniversary of The Great Earthuake of 1906 with a series of front-page articles headed by a single icon—a charred clock frozen at 5:12 am, the exact moment "The Big One" hit.

A century after that devastating event, the stopped clock serves as both the ultimate evidence and the symbol that "captures it all."

Again, almost 100 years later, clocks frozen in time at the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, 2001 both "capture it all" and are the ultimate evidence that shatters the "Official Lie" of what happened that terrible morning.

The Pentagon was first attacked at 9:32 am, much earlier than the 9/11 Commission and official cover story claim. (In this summary of evidence, the more precise time of 9:31:40 am is "rounded up" for ease of reference.)

In the Air Force's own account of the events of 9/11, Air War Over America, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) general who finally ordered interceptor jets scrambled on 9/11 was too late.

Gen. Larry Arnold, revealed that he ordered one of his jets to fly down low over the Pentagon shortly after the attack there that morning, and that this pilot reported back that there was no evidence that a plane had hit the building.

This fighter jet—not Flight 77—is almost certainly the plane seen on the Dulles airport Air Traffic Controller's screen making a steep, high-speed 270-degree descent before disappearing from the radar.

In fact, when the Air Traffic Controller responsible for the plane and her colleagues watched the extremely difficult 270-degree maneuver on her screen, they were certain that the plane whose blip they were watching perform this extremely difficult feat was a US military aircraft, and said so at the time. It almost certainly was.

Because the real modus operandi at the Pentagon and WTC are so similar, it is logical to deduce that the same domestic-US terrorists were responsible for pre-placing and detonating the bombs—both inside the WTC and inside the Pentagon. That is, a single group of US-domestic conspirators—not al Qaeda or any other outside terrorists—must have planned both the WTC and Pentagon attacks and controlled both the approaching planes and the inside-the-building explosions in real time on 9/11.
