A Few Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About September 11, 2001

Fact #1
The World Trade Center Twin Towers Were Designed & Engineered To Withstand The Impact of a Large Commercial Airliner.

According to Leslie E Robertson, one of the head Engineers of the World Trade Center construction project, the Twin Towers were actually built to withstand a collision from the largest commercial airliner of that time, a Boeing 707. In addition to Robertson, the onsite construction manager for the World Trade Center complex, Frank A De Martini, said the exact same thing in an interview recorded on January 25th, 2001. De Martini's statement is as follows:

"The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door -- this intense grid -- and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting."

Another head engineer on the WTC project, and one of the top structural engineers in the world, was John Skilling. Skilling told the Seattle Times in an Interview back in 1993 the following:

" We looked at every possible thing we could think of that could happen to the buildings, even to the extent of an airplane hitting the side... Our analysis indicated the biggest problem would be the fact that all the fuel (from the airplane) would dump into the building. There would be a horrendous fire. A lot of people would be killed... the building structure would still be there."

Skilling can also be seen and heard in a video recorded interview, which you can see for yourself below, making the following statement:

"Thirteen thousand tons is a lot of force... Uh, people always talk about an airplane crashing into a building and in 1944 or 45 a plane did crash into the Empire State Building... But the largest aircraft flying today, at least commercially, the 747 fully loaded, is on the order of three hundred tons.

So if you think about a three hundred ton element, crashing into a building that's been designed to carry thirteen thousand tons, you can see that an aircraft crashing into the World Trade Center would probably not do anything to the major building. It could affect localized structural elements, could knock out a column, and there could be some, some damage. But as far a plane knocking over a building of that type, that would not happen."

Fact #2
The Twin Towers were not the only buildings completely destroyed on 9/11

Even after 20 years have passed, there are a significant amount of people who know absolutely nothing about the existence of World Trade Center Building 7 and the fact that it too, was completely destroyed on 9/11, even though it wasn't hit by a plane. WTC 7 was a modern 47 story high rise building which was part of the WTC complex and was more than a football field away from the twin towers.

WTC 7 had sustained only minor cosmetic damage due to falling debris from the destruction of buildings 1 and 2, causing a few scattered fires on a couple of floors throughout the building. Yet, miraculously, at approximately 5:21 pm on September 11th 2001, WTC 7 suddenly collapses neatly into its own footprint in less than 7 seconds.

The official explanation for it's destruction, which took about 5 or 6 years post 9/11, given by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was due primarily to ordinary office fires fueled by office furnishings, which supposedly caused a failure of the floor connection at column 79 , causing the entire building to collapse in on itself at the speed of gravity for at least 2 of the 7 seconds it took for the 47 story high rise to hit the ground.

Fact #3
A University Study Proves that the official explanation for the destruction of WTC 7 is incorrect

In March 2020, after years of study and analysis, a peer-reviewed scientific report was released by the engineering department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, which concluded that the official explanation of the destruction of WTC 7 is provably false and that there was no way in which ordinary office fires fueled by office furnishings could have brought down WTC 7 in the way that it did. The study was led by Professor Leroy Hulsey of the University Of Alaska Fairbanks and a group of PhD students and was funded by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7 could not have caused the collapse recorded on video,” said Professor Hulsey. “We simulated every plausible scenario, and we found that the series of failures that NIST claimed triggered a progressive collapse of the entire structure could not have occurred. The only thing that could have brought this structure down in the manner observed on 9/11 is the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building below Floor 17.”

One thing I would like to note is that as of the time of writing this in January 2022, no mainstream news channel or news cast has ever dared to cover the fact that the official narrative about the destruction of World Trade Center building 7 has been proven false.

Fact #4
Owner of World Trade Center complex, Larry Silverstein, planned on rebuilding WTC Building 7 more than a year before it was "unexpectedly" destroyed on 9/11
Fact #5
No Other High Rise Building In History Has Ever Collapsed Due To Fire
Fact #6
Osama Bin Laden Made Public Statement Denying Involvement In 9/11 Attacks

Most people remain completely unaware that immediately following the Attacks of September 11th 2001, supposed mastermind of the attacks Osama Bin Laden actually released a public statement in which he completely denied any involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Now I'm sure many of you reading this may be thinking that we can t exactly trust the word of a known terrorist. But keep in mind the fact that the typical modus operandi for terrorist organizations who commit such heinous acts of terror is to actually take credit for what they have done, not deny any involvement whatsoever. There have even been cases in the past where particular terrorist organizations have actually taken credit for incidents of which they literally had no involvement at all. Yet Osama Bin Laden took the time to make a public statement completely denying any involvement in the 9/11 attacks. In a statement issued to Al Jazeera, Bin Laden said the following:

"The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it. I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons. I have been living in the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan and following its leaders' rules. The current leader does not allow me to exercise such operations."

Fact #7
9/11 Was Not A Failure Of Imagination

Contrary to popular belief,

Fact #8
George Bush Senior attended the same meeting as the brother of osama bin laden on 9/11

From Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11' to the CBC's 'The Fifth Estate' as well as several other sources, the family and business ties between the Bush and Bin Laden families have been well documented, going as far back as the 1970's. According to a 2006 article from the Denver Post:

"Several bin Laden family members invested millions in The Carlyle Group, a private global equity firm based in Washington, DC. The company’s senior advisor was Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush. After news of the bin Laden-Bush connection became public, the elder Bush stepped down from Carlyle. Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle Group – including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker – were meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along with Shafiq bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden’s brothers."

Fact #9
The CIA Knowingly Withheld Information From The FBI and the White House Which Could have prevented 9/11 attacks.

"In sum, the evidence shows that in January and March 2000, the CIA uncovered important intelligence information.....Yet, we found that the CIA did not share significant pieces of this information with the FBI."
