I suspect that many of us, including myself, won't be old enough to remember the television show "Get Smart!" starring Don Adams as Maxwell Smart
or Agent 86. It was a James Bond spoof of sorts, a clever blend of action and comedy and quite successful for it's time. I've seen re-runs of the
show through the years, and quite enjoyed it. The name of the show is fairly ironic however as the Good Guys were called Control, the bad guys were
Kaos... that in itself is pretty profound given the espionage premise of the show.
On Febuary 18, 1967, NBC aired episode 52 entitled "Smart Fit The Battle Of Jericho". Frank Lloyd Joshua operated a KAOS front posing as a
construction company called the Joshua Construction Company which seemed to have a history of their High Rise buildings exploding. Max Smart
infiltrates the construction company and discovers that KAOS is using explosives in the actual construction of the buildings themselves.
Construction of the World Trade Center began in 1966. This episode aired just 197 days after the WTC ground breaking.
Around the time this episode aired, the producers of the show (Leonard B. Stern, Jess Oppenheimer, Jay Sandrich, Burt Nodella, Arnie Rosen, James
have said they were directly contacted by the CIA who were very interested in where they were getting their ideas from.

It is interesting to note that David Rockefeller was the force behind the design and construction of the world trade center.
The World Trade Center was conceived in the early 1960s by the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Development Association to revitalize the seedy radio row
dominated by electronic stores. Chase Manhattan Bank chairman David Rockefeller, founder of the development association, and his brother, New York
governor Nelson Rockefeller, pushed hard for the project, insisting it would benefit the entire city.
Here's another interesting tid bit about the show in general...
Just for fun, here's one passage from Spy Television regarding Get Smart and the CIA:
" . . later revelations about the show’s connections to the real espionage community were as humorous as the intentional comedy. In August 1966,
the U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Corps invited Get Smart cast members to entertain at its 19th Annual Convention Banquet. According to Donna
McCrohan, network publicists asked that photos be cleared for public release, and real spies posed with Adams and Feldon for gag shots (89-91). But
the earlier clearance was revoked, and the photos could never be used. Agents demanded the negatives of the film and a letter stating the negatives
had been given over. The letter was written with a carbon, but the carbon had been reversed. One operative confiscated the carbon paper and burned it
in an ashtray. Equally unusual was a revelation by a former CIA operative that his agency was concerned that Get Smart’s writers occasionally came
too close to reality, especially the Cone of Silence which they in fact had created. The agency considered sending the producers a list of areas to
avoid, but elected not to as they feared such a list would result in a parody of their effort."2
Very likely. After all, a prime directive of Buck Henry, Mel Brooks, and the other creators of Get Smart was to satirize a profession they felt was
idiotic. Some true-life encounters could have indeed easily been inspirations for Get Smart scripts. For example, both governmental and industry
representatives came to film sets when they were either hopeful that some gadgets might be useful in the field or when they feared, as with Get Smart,
Hollywood might have stumbled onto gizmos actually in use.
Creepy enough, now check this out...
...as part of their plot, Kaos was constructing government office buildings in Washington, D.C., and waiting until the office buildings were fully
occupied to detonate the explosives with all the workers inside. They were purposely underbidding all the other contractors because Kaos was
subsidizing the company so that they could get the government contracts, even at a loss. A German Baron who owned an explosives company that supplied
the Germans in WWI and WWIII was supplying the explosives. Joshua told Smart that all Kaos had to do was shoot a bullet at the bricks to initiate a
chain reaction detonation of the explosives to bring down the whole building (a miniature version of 9/11). At the end of the episode, the Chief and
Max are at the site and the Chief asks, "Where did you put the nitroglycerin?" Smart replies, "Oh, don't worry, Chief, I put it in a safe place. I
put it in the cement." The workers were just mixing the cement then. I could swear that the first time I saw the episode, the show then closed with a
big explosion. But the second time I saw it several months later, the show ended less dramatically, with Smart and the Chief realizing that the
building would still blow up when occupied.
In the concrete... The concrete that mysteriously pulverizes itself during the collapse and has been the subject of so much debate...
It is very difficult to get much information about those involved with the creation of the "Get Smart" TV series. It turns out it was produced by a
company called Talent Associates, which was formed in 1948 by David Susskind. Previous to this, he was a talent scout for MCA. According to Dr. John
Coleman (1996) MCA has always been an arm of British intelligence, MI6, and the Committee of 300.
Episode 52 was written by Arne Sultan
, interestingly, all his episodes showed the puzzle pieces for the
commercial breaks. Despite being a major player in the entertainment business, his personal life is pretty obscured.
I don't know how accurate this statement is but jeezus...
Further research uncovers that Yamasaki was a favorite architect of the Bin Laden family patrons, i.e. the Saudi royal family.
On this link, about halfway down the page, this guy has done some calculations that make alot of sense to me...
SOME GENERAL UNANSWERED QUESTIONS
Now I will list some questions that have gone unanswered in my mind from the beginning. You undoubtedly have some of your own, but these are some I
had that only the explosive concrete theory can answer thus far. I will attempt to explain them later in the paper.
Why did the second building that was hit end up being the first one to fall?
Why so little debris? As already proven, it should have been a lot higher than "a few stories."
Why no chunks of concrete found? Eyewitnesses and photos document that no significant-sized pieces of concrete were remaining.
Why so much dust? A normal building collapse, even with controlled explosives, does not generate such tremendous quantities of dust. Experienced
witnesses said there was "incredible" amounts of dust (see description below).
Why were remains of survivors so vaporized? This should not have happened if the building simply collapsed from a fire.
What is the cause of the "WTC cough?" Doctors still have no clue as to what caused it. Dr. Prezant says, "It's a persistent cough,...a sore
throat, and interestingly enough,...an accompanying GI irritation." (Zucker, 2001)
EXPLOSIVES MIXED IN CONCRETE ANSWERS ALL OF THE ABOVE
I know it sounds crazy, but then again does it sound so crazy? What sounds crazy to me is THAT MUCH concrete turning itself into micron sized dust
because of fire. Ah well, regardless, episode 52 was one hell of cooincidence if nothing else given the premise of the show.
Thought I would throw this in for interest...
According to the bible (Joshua 5:13-6:27) it was the first battle of the Israelites during their conquest of Canaan....
Safely escaping the city the two returned to Joshua and reported that the "whole land was melting with fear".
Note also that Fit is also an old past tense for fought, in other words the title of this episode is possibly more aptly "Smart Fought The Battle Of
