To GoodOl'Dave:

Maybe we've reached an impasse on the details of that tragic day, so allow me to ask your evaluation of A) the 9/11 Commission's handling of the evidence, and B) your govt's political response to 9/11.

A) i) Why was there no proper investigation until a year after 9/11, 2001, and even then only by handful of selected NIST people?

ii) Why was the steel shipped off for scrap so quickly? Why was the steel removed to China and India at all? Wouldn't it be more important to allow several years to study this very important structural and criminal evidence? Wouldn't it more be important to retain that evidence for years to investigate the murder of 2,800 people rather than to make a few bucks selling it as scrap? Wouldn't it be important for many different engineers, not just a handful of govt approved ones from NIST, to study the structural events so that future buildings won't fall from fire?

iii) Why wasn't the testimony of any person describing explosions from low down in the buildings before the collapse included?

iv) Why was Rudy Giuliani's testimony, the very testimony regarding FEMA's presence I posted above, scrubbed from the Commission/Omission's website?

v) Why weren't all of the dozens of surveillance videos from the Pentagon included?

vi) Why didn't the media challenge Cheney on his timeline of that morning? He said that he got to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center some time after the plane impacts. But this was contradicted by Norman Minetta's testimony who said Cheney was already there when the planes hit.

vii) Why was Kevin Ryan fired from Underwriter's Laboratories after he said that the steel was tested structurally and couldn't have weakened?

viii) Why the 9/11 Commission/Omission halve the strength of steel, and double the load to make their computer models work?


B) i) Why was the political response from your govt from these 19, mostly Saudi, individuals to start military wars?

ii) Why has your Constitution been suspended by executive order, the bill of rights trampled, and wiretaps put on your citizens whom have nothing to do with terrorism or even any crime? Why has your govt and media chosen to maximise the psychological effect of the terrible events of 9/11?

iii) Why are 9/11 truthers considered terrorists?

iv) Why were your military forces assembled and ready to invade Afghanistan 1 month after Sept 11 - a build up which started many months before 9/11?

Let me answer your question with a question- if there really WAS a coverup, why would there have been any investigation *at all*?

An educated guess would be becuase of typical beaurocratic red tape. Congress is so goofy, they have to get together to vote on what they're going to get together to vote on. Oh, and if you want a laugh, look up what a "filibuster" is.


ii) Why was the steel shipped off for scrap so quickly? Why was the steel removed to China and India at all?


The only steel removed/recycled was from areas that wasn't in any pertinent locations. The steel from the area of the impact areas are still in a hanger at La Guardia airport even now.


iii) Why wasn't the testimony of any person describing explosions from low down in the buildings before the collapse included?


Becuase noone is refuting there were explosions in the building.


iv) Why was Rudy Giuliani's testimony, the very testimony regarding FEMA's presence I posted above, scrubbed from the Commission/Omission's website?


How is that relevent to anything?


v) Why weren't all of the dozens of surveillance videos from the Pentagon included?


The only ones who insist there are even any relevent surveillance videos are the conspiracy people themselves., who base it upon absolutely nothing. If you eant me to speculate upon an unprovable statement then I'd guess that the cameras are trained upon high traffic areas like the entrance and parking lot, not bare walls like where the plane hit.


vi) Why didn't the media challenge Cheney on his timeline of that morning? He said that he got to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center some time after the plane impacts. But this was contradicted by Norman Minetta's testimony who said Cheney was already there when the planes hit.


How is that relevent to anything?


vii) Why was Kevin Ryan fired from Underwriter's Laboratories after he said that the steel was tested structurally and couldn't have weakened?


According to UL Ryan was fired becuase he wrote out letters pretending to represent UL when he really didn't. He also claimed UL certifird the steel when it really didn't. The guy wasn't even involved with the NIST testing of the steel.

FYI I lookd up the actual UL test. All they did was test the steel. They didn't try to simulate damage from the aircraft or analyse the designs of the towers, so the tests don't prove a whole lot one way or the other.


viii) Why the 9/11 Commission/Omission halve the strength of steel, and double the load to make their computer models work?


Would you mind posting the page of the 9/11 report where it supposedly says that? I don't recall the report discussing actual structural issues of the WTC.



B) i) Why was the political response from your govt from these 19, mostly Saudi, individuals to start military wars?


Because the Taliban was giving sanctuary to Bin Laden and they refused to hand him over for trial. Even Saudi Arabia went there and tried to get them to give him up and they still refused. After the attacks, the gov't wasn't in any mood to say "pretty please".


ii) Why has your Constitution been suspended by executive order, the bill of rights trampled, and wiretaps put on your citizens whom have nothing to do with terrorism or even any crime? Why has your govt and media chosen to maximise the psychological effect of the terrible events of 9/11?


Reactionary drivel. Seeing people have been calling Bush an idiot, a dictator, a monkey, a drug addict, etc etc etc...I know becuase I was one of them...the constitution has most definitely NOT been suspended.


iii) Why are 9/11 truthers considered terrorists?


By who?

Dave has not been able to do so. Therefore, what is Dave's only option that he can take to try and save his credibility? He typed about a completely different set of photographs and avoids the question about his original image of scrap metal!!!


All right then, I'll play you're game. I myself believe it to be legitimate, but since the Pentagon power supply photo doesn't meet your "established chain of custody" criteria I will withdraw it as evidence...mainly becuase I don't need it.

NOW, will you address the fact that the Mark Faram photos of the wreckage with AA markings found at the Pentagon, and the Joel Meyerowitz photos of the WTC wreckage that show no signs of sabotage, ARE legitimate evidence becuase the photographers ARE identified and thus DO meet your "established chain of custody" criteria? Now that it's been established by legitimate chain-of-custody evidence...a criteria which YOU AGREE on...that there was no sabotage at the WTC and that an AA aircraft did hit the Pentagon, it still proves these conspiracy stories are wholly absurd.

I can live with the trade-off.


[Dave, when you completely avoid trying to verify that image of scrap metal and then deflect the argument to something irrelevant, it is you who is painting yourself into a corner. And that corner lacks credibility.


The photos taken by Mark Faram of the fuselage wreckage on the Pentagon lawn with AA colors is hardly irrelevent. It shows that OTHER AA wreckage was certified to be on the lawn becuase it meets *your* chain of custody criteria as being legitimate. Becuase one piece of AA wreckage was shown to be present, it means that other pieces of AA wreckage would likewise be present becuase plane crashes never leave just one piece of wreckage lying around.

This is neither here nor there, since I've withdrawn the aforementioned photo of the power supply, so you'll now have to come up with some other reason that lets you dismiss the fuselage photos out of hand. Let's face it, we both know you're not going to accept any evidence whatsoever which refutes your conspiracy stories, established chain of custory or otherwise.

I invite you to prove me wrong on this.



Firstly, Dave, in many threads I have stated that I only support the null hypothesis. I do not have an alternate hypothesis, as I don't know what happened.


In that case, you have chosen your words poorly. I go by the definition of "alternate hypothesis" as being a secondary theory to some other, primary theory. Accepting for the sake of argument that flight 77 hitting the Pentagon is a theory rather than established fact, it goes without saying being the first to be submitted it is the primary theory and all other scenarios are secondary theories. It should be obvious that I support the primary theory.

Oh, and if I may ask, just *why* are you fighting so strongly against the possibility that the primary theory is correct when you just admitted now that you don't even know what happened?


I won't call you a liar, because last time I called someone a liar I was warned by a Moderator and fined 500 points. Please, search my nearly 3500 posts and quote where I have provided an alternate hypothesis at the Pentagon, with proof. It would be wise of you not to make up stories about what I have previously stated.


Of course you're going to call me a liar. I knew right away you were of a mind to declare everything I post as a lie, and I daresay there isn't a single member of your opposition you've ever encountered that you didn't think was lying. This is the difference betweeen you and I, and *that* is why you keep ketting socked by the moderators- when *I* discover *you* spreading a falsehood, I know it isn't you lying, but the conspriacy websites you're getting your material from. When *you* accuse *me* of lying, you accuse me, personally, as if you think I supposedly made up some fake piece of wreckage and took a photo of it in my own back yard.

In a previous thread, I used the term "religious fanatic" to describe certain conspriacy people here in the context that they identify with their conspiracy theories so intimately that any attack on their theories is perceived as a personal attack on themselves, and they launch personal attacks against their opposition in turn. Does this fit you, too?


But now, with the statement above, Dave has decided that it was an aircraft that hit the Pentagon. Note how he has taken a step back from his claim that the aircraft was the alleged Flight AA77. Perhaps Dave has realised that he is finding it a little more difficult to prove that the alleged Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon than he was hoping it would be?


Saying that an aircraft hit the Pentagon and saying flight 77 hit the Pentagon is the exact same thing becuase flight 77 was in fact an aircraft. You are certainly not stupid so I know full well you knew this already, so either you are attempting to manipulate my words in some juvenile spite game here or you're not paying attention to my statements, and I shouldn't have to tell you that neither of these are behaviors that a self declared "researcher of the truth" ought to be displaying.

Neutral readers to this thread will note that Dave has admitted that he could not prove that alleged part was from the alleged Flight AA77 and he has withdrawn his claim.

Thanks for that, Dave. It wasn't so hard, was it?

Which alleged plane did that alleged piece of wreckage come from, Dave?

Faulty logic, Dave.

Here's what you should claim to satisfy logic: Because one piece of wreckage, painted in what might be AA colours was shown to be present, it means that one piece of wreckage, painted in what could be AA colours, was shown to be present.

Dave, you don't know much about logic. That's not an insult, it's a statement of observation.

A null hypothesis states only the observed facts. Any attempt to explain the observed facts becomes an alternate hypothesis.

Null hypothesis: An event caused an explosion at the Pentagon.
Your alternate hypothesis: Flight AA77 crashed into the Pentagon.

Way out of line, Dave. You're very far from the topic and drifting...

I've never been warned once by the Moderators in a 9/11 thread - ever. I've been warned twice in the UFO threads and twice in the Alternative Breaking News threads. You are wrong when you state that Moderators 'sock' me.

Dave, I did not accuse you of lying. Please, check your facts and stop spreading these claims about me. If I had accused you of lying, then I would have been duly warned by a Moderator.

Dave, your insinuation is way off topic and probably close to breaching the terms and conditions of this website.

You're attacking me, not my post. Why are you appearing to resort to personal attacks, Dave?

No, Dave. This is incorrect. Stating that an aircraft hit the Pentagon is not the same as stating that the alleged Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon.

Dave, it is you who is not paying attention to your own statements.

You need to be very specific if you wish to claim that the alleged Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon. You need to be able to prove this.

Anyway, after your long post that drifted off topic and started to attack me, I can sum up by thanking you for withdrawing that image.

You full well realise that you can't prove that it was a part of the alleged Flight AA77.

You still did not answer my question. So, your logic is above real creditable science.


Come on now. You really, and I mean REALLY, want me to post "real, credible science" how blowing up the support girders would leave obvious evidence of being blown up in the wreckage they found during the ground zero cleanup? It's like asking me how cops can tell that a murder victim had been shot, or not.


Only in your imagination, it is impossible. GoodOlDave try to think “outside” the box for once. Your comment is only your opinion nothing more.


That's the problem, then, isn't it? Instead of looking at the facts and then trying to come up with a scenario that best fits the facts...like every other researcher in the world does...YOU come up with a favored scenario FIRST, and then you "think outside the box" on how to make the facts conform to the scenario. Yeah, at the end of the day you've explained your conspiracy, but to do it you have to come up with some insane sounding, convoluted Rube Goldberg scenario that doesn't make sense even after explaining it twice. Even now it's beginning to dawn on you that you're forced to ride a never ending runaway train of conspiracies, disinformation and coverups in order to justify your conspiracy stories. Heck, you're even bickering over whether or not people saw fighter aircraft over NYC after the attack.


It did leave blatant effects on all the wreckage and it was noticeable everywhere thermit was everywhere, melted steel beams, pools of molten steel, eyewitness accounts of flashes going around the towers, eyewitness accounts of explosions by firemen and police officers, and first responders,


I am immune to bait and switch. I said it would leave blatant evidence of blast damage ON THE STEEL. Claims of supposed thermite found 1/2 mile away and peopel hearing explosions from outside is NOT blatant evidence of blast damage on the steel. Blatant evidence of blast damage on the steel would be photos, and we both know the photos show no such thing.


oh that’s right all those people are liars and your witness only tell the truth. Then there is the science that you cannot dispute, because you are not a scientist.


If you have no evidence of blast damage on any of the WTC steel then you have no evidence to back the claim up, regardless of what was found 1/2 mile away or what witnesses heard outside. It's as simple as that.


The fact is we are led to believe by the FBI that these alleged hijackers stole other people identities so that they could not get any recognition for carrying out such a defeat. I find it truly amazing that 19 extremist Muslim planned and carried out 911 in total secrecy and did not want to get the recognition that they thought their comrades deserved.


You just contradicted yourself. Hijackers who "planned and carried out 9/11 in total secrecy" would by definition leave no traces of anything that would give them any kind of recognition for what they did. Recognition is what they needed to avoid to pull it off to begin with.



Prove it? Show us proof from other scientists who have made that claim in the same filed of expertise as the scientist, who have proven the government is lying? ( Oh that’s right you cant!)


You need to take a closer look at your "scientists" as they have no background whatsoever in the fields they're claiming to be experts in. One guy is a professor of religion, one guy works with economics, another is a professor of theoretical cold fusion, one guy is a pediatrician, and one guy is just a college student who made an internet flick in his dorm room. If I wanted to learn how Sampson destroyed the Philistines, the theory of supply and demand, or how to deliver a baby, great, but anything concerning the WTC is strictly their own uninformed personal opinion, not scientific analysis.

On the other hand, here's a report from an actual MIT materials engineer (and thus a scientist by everyone's definition) that explains how the plane crash may have led to the collapse, along with the math and the physics to back it up. I have yet to hear why this explanation is wrong-

Materials Engineer report



No, it is not my “obligation” to show you how fast the WTC fell anyone can look at his watch and watch one of the News broadcasts of that day, showing how fell fast they fell. Any five year old can figure that out.


Another bait and switch. I didn't ask you to tell me how fast the towers fell. I asked you how fast they *should* have fallen, given the damage and the construction, sicne you believe they fell too fast. If you can't, then you can't prove they didn't fall they way they naturally should have fallen, given the damage and the construction. Arguing how fast they actually fell is therefore moot.


Well now I know for a fact that you are WRONG because I seldom ever talk with people who do not believe in the OS. The reason is because we all know the proven lies in the NIST reports


You just contrdicted yourself AGAIN. If you "seldom ever talk to people who don't believe in the OS" then by definition you wouldn't know how the "proven" lies in the NIST report are "proven".


Explosive Testimony: Revelations about the Twin Towers in the 9/11 Oral Histories


Now, WHY did you go and riun a perfectly good discussion with such deliberate duplicity? I just got finished telling you throughout several posts that NOONE is debating that explosions were heard, mainly becuase the towers were obviously full of things that would certainly go BOOM when they catch on fire. I asked you for examples of how (according to you) firefighters and policemen heard or saw something that proves something different, and what do you do? You post more quotes of people hearing explosions!

I really don't know how to explain it any more clearly than I already am. NOONE, but NOONE, is denying there were explosions. That crap is coming entirely from your conspiracy websites to drop innuendo that the explosions were actually explosives and that there's some coverup going on. You may not be reading those websites directly, but I see right away that's where the garbage you're quoting is coming from.

Well, I can understand you argument, however, it dose not explain why there were explosions going off in the basement of the WTC when the airplanes hit between the 78 floors way to high up. No airplane hit the bottom floors.


You're asking me to document the procession of the damages of the towers, which noone will ever be able to know. If you wanted an educated guess based upon what we do know, it was probably either due to objects below being ignited by the burning fuel being poured down the central shaft (The Naudet brothers filmed eyewitness reports of flames being seen all the way down at the lobby level), or, they really heard wreckage breaking off from above and falling down the central shaft (the planed destroyed the emergency stairwells so we know the impact reached the central core).

Regardless, there are still many more realistic non-conspiracy explanations than there are conspiracy explanations.


Wrong, Silverstein’s said “pull it” live on television for the world to see and hear. You can “assume” he was talking about pulling the firemen out of WTC 7, however it is a fact that demolition experts use's the same terms to bring down a building “ pull it. “


I don't have to assume anything. We can see right away what he meant from the context. Silverstein essentially said, "becuase there was already such a great loss of life the decision was made to pull it." SO, he either meant..

"Becuase there was already such a great loss of life the decision was made to get the firefighters out of there"

...OR...

"Becuase there was already such a great loss of life the decision was made to blow the building up and then conceal it from everyone except for you people interviewing me now

When I say the conspiracy people are deliberately taking people's quotes out of context, you're not really proving me wrong here.


How can you go by a report that contradicts itself repeatedly?


Becuase if you're going to discuss the supposed flaws in the OS then it's your responsibility to read it in order to know what the flaws are in the first place. This is exactly why I read the conspiracy websites. People who have the truth on their side don't need to run and hide from anything, and even you will have to agree on that.

You claim it "contradicts itself repeatedly". Can you mention even ONE contradiction it actually has? If not, you're only proving my point.



Yes, those are our military jets, however, watching the video you have presented from CNN, shows both towers have already been stuck, so thank you for proving my facts. You are only showing after the fact. I wanted to know if there was any proof of our military being in the skies over NYC moments before that attacks, or during the attacks, however, you have failed to prove this.


No you didn't! You asked me, and I quote-

"Really, can you supply a link for this information besides your opinions show us some sources that it was only *minutes after the attack* because I don’t recall see any F16, or F18 flying over NYC in any of the News videos. "

-and I showed it to you. I never said the planes were over NYC before the attack and neither did you. I don't know what your goal was for trying to pull this stunt, but you're only making your own credibility suffer from it, not mine.


What base was that? I am sure you have sources where this F-15 came from?


I already gave you a link to where you can download the 9/11 commission report for free, so YOU have sources what base this F-15 came from too.

What do you want me to do, post the page number? All right, fine, it's on page twenty, seventeen lines down from the top. If, at this point, you're *still* too afraid to go into into the report and look it up, it will be a blatant sign of intentional evasion you will not be able to conceal.


But, but, Dave, you have insulted everyone else’s intelligences on this thread with your opinions, and assumptions, And no sources.


Are you for real?!? You keep asking me questions that you should have already known the answers to, if you had only read the 9/11 commission report like I told you six times already and which you admit you refuse to do. What bothers me is that you're NOT saying "my sources are untrustworthy". You're saying I have no sources AT ALL, which is blatantly a false accusation.

If this is the type of behavior I can expect from you from now on, please, let me know now.



Furthmore why don’t you tell that to the Jersey Girls who lost their husbands in the WTC and demanded an investigation into the events of 911. After 18 long months after 911 our government still didn’t give the American people any answers to what happened on 911.


Bait and switch. The Jersey girls aren't demanding to know how the towers collapsed like you are, and they certainly don't subscribe to the ridiculous "remote controlled planes used as a cover story to conceal controlled demolitions" conspiracy either. They're demanding to know how the gov't responded during the attack, specifically on the foul ups that prevented the gov't from stopping the attack. Heck, *I* want to know what the foul ups were that prevented the gov't from preventing the attack.

Besides, how is the gov't not wanting to admit its foul ups during the attack any proof someone was able to sneak into the WTC and plant bombs all over the place without anyone noticing? You're grasping at straws and you know it.


The only way I can feel better is by reasurching the truth, and avoiding all those disninfo web sites that you keep quoting from.


Dude, the moment you set yourself up with a filter that only allows some information in while keeping all other information out, you've admitted you aren't even remotely interested in researching the truth. You're only interested in learning more about your conspiracy stories.

Censorship is still censorship, regardless of why you're doing it.

What if..?

From an observers point of view. Real-life.
Starts the day, stopping by at Starbucks before hitting his way to work.
Suddenly sees a plane hovering over the city for a long time.
Shortly after looks up to the skies to see a plane-look-alike-missile hitting the north tower of World Trade Center. Then gets "deported". being told to get off from the streets by a policeman who sends everybody he meets in one particular direction. Emptying the streets you know... though he was not very close to the towers anyway...

Suddenly he feels that the ground is shaking. A phone call is received by a friend who works in the north tower. "The lobby just exploded! The #ing lobby exploded!" The poor man is trying to get in contact with friends, but nobody answer their phones...

Suddenly, another missile hits the south tower.
More explosions. Towers crumbling to earth after a series of these.

Thousands of observators... filming the whole event as it unfolds... handy cameras... mobile phones, taking some pictures... all confiscated... and no one ever hear a reaction on this?! Come on, people?

WHAT? It was 2001 - the technology was available and affortable!

So... ask yourselves: do you know what happened this day?
A lot of people were taken away in big black vans, a lot of people just disappeared - and... you guys show them the "Internet TV Archive" and searches false-flagged internet-sites which just disinforms you gradually...

Name any other time in history where a steel framed, tube within a tube constructed, building

It's neither a tube nor a tube within a tube. "Tube structure" was a key piece of misinformation by the govt and media. The whole of the core was filled with 47 columns supporting more than half the weight. Here is the floor plan:

What the heck is going on here? The fires and the damage were more severe than building 7 yet it did not globally collapse symmetrically into its own footprint at near free fall speed as did WTC 7.


WTC 7 did not have the twin towers fall on it:

But searchers also gathered surprisingly intact mementos of lives lost. Those items, such as a wedding ring and other jewelry, photos, credit cards, purses and their contents, shoes, a wallet and currency, are among seven boxes of identified personal effects salvaged from the site.


Metal parts, including titanium alloys vapourised and disappeared, while paper photos, leather purses etc survived. Odd contradiction. What really happened to those people? Eyewitnesses in Shanksville report a missile, not a plane hitting the ground. Have a look at the pictures and all the eyewitness reports toward the end of Loose Change final cut from 1:32 onwards. There was no plane, just a modest burned hole and a few small pieces of debris. No plane, no bodies, no engines, no luggage at the impact site. At 1:34 Chris Kinickey, a witness on the site said:


There was nothing that you could distinguish that a plane had crashed there... [the hole] was 20 to 15 feet long and 10 feet wide.

There were, however, pieces of debris over a wide area indicating something was blown up high up.

Thanks Swampfox46_1999 for all your info on the Mujahedeen, etc and your research efforts. Perhaps some good info there. I feel, however, that the US/CIA role is downplayed.

From the Guardian:

Bin Laden was... a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.

This photo shows an outward bend in the steel support column indicative of a percussive blast at its end where it was welded to the next section of support column. It is also discoloured near the end showing that high heat was involved.

Another photo with blast damage:


Another concussive bend:



Schematic of how there effects were achieved:



As these columns fell the ends were smoking:


Most of the pictures that were taken just after 9/11 were confiscated by FEMA, not released and not published in the 9/11 Omission report. The pictures which don't conform to the official theory are not included, which doesn't make sense unless they're trying to cover something up.

Incorrect. World Trade 1 and 2 were class A buildings, meaning that all restaurants were fitted with electrical burners. Gas tanks, diesel tanks, and other readymade explosive materials were not allowed. (William Rodriguez video here: scroll to 24:30) There was nothing to blow up. In any case how does a collision and jet fuel 400 yards higher trigger explosions down the bottom including in the basement? Aside from one express elevator to the restaurant none of the elevators extended the whole way from top to bottom. Instead, to save space in the design, they terminate at one of two sky lobbies one third and two thirds of the way up.


Furthermore, the elevator shafts were airproofed as a retardant to the spread of fire.


The Pentagon will not release the security videos which cover all angles and aspects of the building. To which you said:

You're talking about a sizable proportion of your American population. Many 9/11 victims' families also demand to see this type of evidence.

The results of a 2004 Zogby Poll:

Do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth, are mostly telling the truth but hiding something, or are they mostly lying?

Telling the truth 16%
Hiding something 53%
Mostly lying 28%
Not sure 3%


And a 2006 poll:

..The poll also found that 16 percent of Americans speculate that secretly planted explosives, not burning passenger jets, were the real reason the massive twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed.

More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll.

That's 10's of millions of Americans. And, of course, the proportion outside the US is much higher. That's a lot of people for you to condescend to. The families of the US service men and women maimed or killed in the war on terror also deserve to know if it's all legit.

But Dave, the reason a limited sample set of dust was available is because the evidence was removed. It was virtually all gone by the time 414 days had elapsed and the 9/11 Commission was finally allowed to investigate the causes of the collapse. The dust that was examined by Steven Jones was collected by an ordinary New York citizen who fortunately did not hand it over to FEMA or the FBI. The govt didn't keep any of the dust because I guess they just knew from day one that Osama did it, so no real investigation was required.

THAT steel is still in a hanger at La Guardia airport even now.

Not quite true. I got this from a government website so you can't say it's a conspiracy theory:

The artifacts include the last steel column removed from the site, other large pieces of steel, emergency vehicles, 18 sections of the World Trade Center antenna and two PATH cars. They are stored at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Hangar 17.

This is the largest collection of World Trade Center artifacts, although it represents less than one half of 1 percent of all of the debris removed from the World Trade Center site.


So, depending on how many other sites there are, we can estimate they destroyed about 99% of the evidence. Also, did you know that 100% of 7 World Trade was removed for scrap before the reasons behind the collapse were investigated at all? This contravenes the law governing the evidence of a crime scene. Moreover, as the first modern steel structured building to fall from fire that wasn't hit by a plane it would be essential to fully investigate the structural reasons for the collapse so that future such events could be avoided.

FYO the "evidence destroyed" wasn't evidence. It was steel from locations that weren't anywhere near the impact area.

Steel from locations not in the impact zone. This is not how an investigation is done. You don't say here's how I think it went and proceed to investigate all the evidence you think fits this theory and ignore all else...unless you're NIST. The exact same rationale was applied to the investigation of the put options on American and United airlines which were way higher than normal just prior to 9/11. NIST said that because none of those involved were associated with Al Qaeda it was not relevant. That is not how to conduct a proper investigation. It is why the families of the 9/11 victims are still asking for a proper investigation even up to this day.

The pattern is now evident that you're actually making stuff up. All of your props for the official story come from the skin-deep analysis of the 9/11 Omission and mainstream media. The whole point of the 9/11 truth videos is that there is a mountain of very important evidence which has been overlooked or apparently deliberately ignored. If you're not willing to question the things the official story has omitted and the reasons for doing so then you'll never be freed from the bondage of your psychological cacoon of safety.

Show one part that has been traced, by serial number, to match the alleged Flight AA77.

Don't back down now, not unless you're willing to apologise and admit being wrong.

Your wish is my command. This component was found on the Pentagon Lawn, and it has a very clear serial number. It was identified as the power supply for the emergency lights for flight 77.

Flight 77 wreckage



Dave Dave Dave. You would guess it was Mark Faram who took the photo of your mystery piece? Is that a proper chain of custody Dave? I guess? Are there any legitimate judges who would allow that in their courtrooms Dave?



Can you tell us the very clear serial number Dave? Read it out for us so it can be properly traced for forensic indentification. You can't? Why is it written by hand Dave? It looks like there is a 5th number written behind the fold. So what is the very clear serial number Dave? Lend us your awesome intellect.

Can you positively identify that lawn as belonging to the Pentagon Dave? That lawn could be anywhere in the world couldn't it and a paper photo cannot give up any photo history can it Dave?



If this is a Mark Faram photo you guess, then where is the original? How come the only known example of this photo is printed on a paper page of the Defense Department official 9/11 book and nowhere else and never appeared publicly until 2007? Why would Mark Faram censor this particular photo and never publish the original? Why wouldn't Mark Faram or any photographer want proper accredidation for his photo?

Why did it take almost 6 years for this alleged photo of an alleged Flight 77 part at the Pentagon to appear publicly? Could it be it took that long to draw it out of inventory, smudge the serial number so it could not be traced to a different aircraft, and to crush it gently in a vise?


posted by GoodOlDave
In truth, I don't know who took that individual photo (though I'd guess it was Mark Faram, as he's the one who took the photo of the big chunk of wreckage with AA colors, nearby)

Neutral readers to this thread will note that Dave has admitted that he could not prove that alleged part was from the alleged Flight AA77 and he has withdrawn his claim.


And of course, it is noted that TezzaJW couldn't DISPROVE it, either. His entire basis for dismissing it was...that I didn't know the name of the photographer. A rather flimsy reason for dismissing blatantly obvious evidence, seeing that photos whose photographers actually were identified (I.E. Joel Meyerowitz) are still meaningless to him.

Who are you talking to, here, anyway? The only ones who care about this conversation between you and me are you and me.



Which alleged plane did that alleged piece of wreckage come from, Dave?


Seeing that the wreckage was distinctly marked in AA colors, and that there were two known AA planes missing on 9/11 (flight 11 and flight 77), logic dictates that it had to be one or the other. If you have evidence that it was in fact flight 11, please post it..with a chain of custody, of course. I know how fond you are of establishing pedigree.


[Faulty logic, Dave.


Oh, good grief, NOW you're bickering over whether or not plane crashes would leave more than one piece of wreckage on the ground? Do I really have to tell you that when your arguments have to descent to such absurd obtuse levels in order to keep them going, it's a mark of desperation, more than it is anything else?


A null hypothesis states only the observed facts. Any attempt to explain the observed facts becomes an alternate hypothesis.


I think you should look up the definition of "null hypothesis" if I were you. According to Wikipedia, Null Hypothesis "formally describes some aspect of the statistical behaviour of a set of data; this description is treated as valid unless the actual behaviour of the data contradicts this assumption."

The wreckage recovered (I.E.flight recorders) as well as the photographs (I.E. Mark Faram) as well as eyewitness accounts (I.E. Joel Sucherman) supports the hypothesis that an AA plane hit the Pentagon and that the plane was in fact flight 77, and the wreckage on the lawn as well as the gaping hole and the explosion only continues to support the hypothesis. Your job is to refute the hypothesis that it was flight 77, not bicker over frivolous dead ends like whether or not plane crashes would leave more than one piece of wreckage on the ground.


Because I support the null hypothesis where some kind of event caused an explosion at the Pentagon.


So do I. The event was known as, "flight 77 hit it".


You're attacking me, not my post. Why are you appearing to resort to personal attacks, Dave?


AsI said, I am not attacking you personally. I posted a description of an attitude of a fixed mindset of zealotry resembling religious fanaticism among the truther community, and this cannot be debated. I asked you if this described you. The reason I asked should be obvious- if you are, then I am clearly wasting my time providing you with the details of the 9/11 attack, and you are clearly wasting your time asking for them, becuase such a mentality will NEVER abandon the core principles of zealotry that drive it regardless of the information being presented.



No, Dave. This is incorrect. Stating that an aircraft hit the Pentagon is not the same as stating that the alleged Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon.


Yes it is the same whether you want to admit it or not. The only difference is that one group (an aircraft hit the Pentagon) has a larger population than the other group (flight 77 hit the Pentagon) becuase the first group ALSO contains "cruise missiles" and "Predator drones" in addition to "flight 77"

You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel with this particular methodology of debate, you know.


You need to be very specific if you wish to claim that the alleged Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon. You need to be able to prove this.


No, actually, YOU need to DISPROVE it was flight 77. That is the accepted explanation, so if you wish to discount it you need to show why it is invalid. I already told you that. Thus, you need to show at least ONE item that contradicts the claim that it was flight 77, otherwise you really ARE wasting my time and yours arguing over this.

A week to respond to me, yet you have failed to prove your side of the OS.


A rather absurd statement, seeing that you demanded I post evidence that jet fighters were seen over NYC, which I did, and I even posted the exact page and line number in the commission report where it explained what base the fighters came from. PLUS, I even gave you a link to where you can get the 9/11 commission report for free. All this was to answer questions YOU asked, as you recall. If you didn't want to know then why did you ask for it?

I said in my last post that if you're STILL avoiding having to look into the 9/11 commission report...particularly to find an answer to a question YOU YOURSELF asked...it will be a blatant sign of intentional evasion you will not be able to conceal. As far as I'm concerned, you can now no longer conceal the blatant signs that you're intentionally evading everything which refutes your conspiracy stories. I shouldn't have to tell you that the truth never has to run and hide from falsehoods. It's falsehoods that have to hide from the truth.

Besides, why are you even asking such question, anyway? In YOUR OWN WORDS you said, and I quote...

"I don’t care what anyone thinks and I don’t even care to prove what I have to say either. In my opinion this was the work of the Bush administration, not the work of 19 phantom hijackers. In my opinion there were bombs planted in all the WTC. "

...so whatever your actual agenda is, finding out and learning the truth of what happened on 9/11 isn't it. You have no credibility whatsoever.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to Jones' report, this supposed evidence was found in four areas- north, south, east, and west- around ground zero. I do not agree with Jones' findings, but I do agree with his collecting enough randomized samples to perform his tests.

This is actually the problem- he found it in EVERY sample he took, from completely separate locations. This says right there that this material necessarily had to have come from a very large source of the stuff, and the largest known source of the stuff was the towers themselves. He does not show his material to have any significant difference from what the towers were constructed from.


The artifacts include the last steel column removed from the site, other large pieces of steel, emergency vehicles, 18 sections of the World Trade Center antenna and two PATH cars. They are stored at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Hangar 17.


Ah, I stand corrected. It's being stored in a hanger at JFK, not LaGuardia. The mistake in hanger locations is mine...but is STILL refutes your claims that "all the evidence was immediately whisked away to China", so in the end my original point is still valid.


So, depending on how many other sites there are, we can estimate they destroyed about 99% of the evidence. Also, did you know that 100% of 7 World Trade was removed for scrap before the reasons behind the collapse were investigated at all? This contravenes the law governing the evidence of a crime scene.


...but you've failed to prove that WTC7 was in fact a crime scene. When one house catches on fire and sets the neighboring house on fire, it's pretty well established it was the fire from the first house that cuased the second house to burn down. It's the causes of the fires of the first house which need to be investigated, and sinc eyou agree that they kept large amounts of WTC wreckage at JFK it's obvious that they did.


Moreover, as the first modern steel structured building to fall from fire that wasn't hit by a plane it would be essential to fully investigate the structural reasons for the collapse so that future such events could be avoided.


I suppose I can agree with you on this, but the 9/11 attack was a freak occurrence even among freak occurences. I really dont know what you can do to protect a building against another building falling on it.


Steel from locations not in the impact zone. This is not how an investigation is done. You don't say here's how I think it went and proceed to investigate all the evidence you think fits this theory and ignore all else...unless you're NIST.


You forget that the idea of "controlled demolitions"...presuming this is how you thinm it went...is an unrealistic explanation which they're not goign to waste much time on. The WTC wasn't just some cardboard box in your backyeard, it was a HUGE OCCUPIED skyscraper, in the middle of Manhatten, and there's no way controlled demolitions could have been smuggled in without anyone whatsoever noticing them. Claiming that the hijacked aircraft was really part of some plot to conceal the controlled demolitions only makes it even more unrealistic.

The fact of the matter is, an aircraft hit the WTC and the building began collapsing at the point of impact. Everything, including the controlled demolitions hypothesis, must take that fact into account.


The exact same rationale was applied to the investigation of the put options on American and United airlines which were way higher than normal just prior to 9/11. NIST said that because none of those involved were associated with Al Qaeda it was not relevant. That is not how to conduct a proper investigation. It is why the families of the 9/11 victims are still asking for a proper investigation even up to this day.


To my knowledge, the families of 9/11 are asking what the gov'ts behind the scenes knowledge really is, and whether there were any missed opportunities to stop it. Essentially they're looking for negligence and incompetency. I don't believe they're demanding to know how WTC 7 fell like you do.

Do you have anythign which shows the contrary?


The pattern is now evident that you're actually making stuff up. All of your props for the official story come from the skin-deep analysis of the 9/11 Omission and mainstream media.


Name ONE thing I'm making up. ONE. I've asked this at least FOUR TIMES here and not one person can give me an example. All they ever do is simply change the subject quickly. Perhaps you can be the first to give me an example.

This false accusation is getting tiring, and only serves to deteriorate your credibility, not mine.

It is with this quote that Dave shows his truly absurd notions about set theory and logic, another indicator of his failure at Logic 101.

Dave claims that stating an aircraft hit the Pentagon is equivalent to stating that Flight AA77 hit the Pentagon.

Basic set theory, let's define two sets for objetcs that could have hit the Pentagon:
A = [all possible aircraft]
B = [Flight AA77]

Clearly, B is a subset of A. Clearly, A is not a subset of B.

Dave claims that A is a subset of B. Dave, you are wrong. Plain and simple.

Here you go again making assumptions of what my ( agenda ) is.
For someone to make such a ridicules comment of one’s credibility I find that strange coming from you when you don’t post sources, or spout opinions as facts, if you weren’t so emotional about the fact that you are wrong I would have consider a real debate with you. However, when one does not like to post his or her sources, makes ridiculous opinions, and claims them as facts, then it is time for me to walk away.
Again, this thread is about: I just saw “witness to 911” and your whole post is off topic.
I already said what I thought of the film, that the film was all one sided and full of misinformation and assumptions, or opinions with very little sciences to support the truth.
To me the film was yet anther tool to mislead the public and to convince them of the 911 lie.
Anyone can Google anything about 911 and reliesed we have been lied to. No one has to be an engineer, or a scientist, or a demo expert, to see and read the flaws in the OS. Those that cant in my opinion just refuse to see the science that really supports the truth maybe are afraid, or perhaps, afraid our own government might be involved in committing mass murder on such a grand scale. “Freighting isn’t it”, well it should be.
GoodOlDave, you can claim everyone is wrong if that makes you happy. However, we all know who is really being silly here don’t we.
