How does the believers in the official stories explain the refusal of information from the agencies?
1) why does NIST, FBI, SEC, Department of the Navy, and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey withhold information and pictures and videos
despite FOIA requests?
2) NIST are still holding on to the 7000 videos and 7000 pictures they used in their investigation, despite FOIA requests... wtc.nist.gov...
3) FBI confiscated 80 videos at pentagon, only 4 have been made avaiable via FOIA.
4) The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey refused to release the audiotape of firefighters' communications from the World Trade Center. In
early November 2002, the tape was released to the New York Times, then to other unspecified "news outlets" (according to the Associated Press). the
NYT is the only outlet to post excerpts from the tape; no one has yet posted the entire thing...
quotes from the new york times recordings...
original recordings released by new york times..
5) NIST didnt look for explosives because acording to NIST... "it would be a waste of time to look for something that wasnt there...."
"There was just an explosion [in the south tower]. It seemed like on television [when] they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all
the way around like a belt, all these explosions."--Firefighter Richard Banaciski
"I saw a flash flash flash [at] the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building?"
--Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory
"[I]t was like professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'."
--Paramedic Daniel Rivera
"I hear an explosion and I look up. It is as if the building is being imploded, from the top floor down, one after another, boom, boom, boom." FDNY
Captain Dennis Tardio
Battalion Chief John Sudnik: "we heard a loud explosion or what sounded like a loud explosion and looked up and I saw tower two start coming down.
Firefighter Timothy Julian: "First I thought it was an explosion. I thought maybe there was a bomb on the plane, but delayed type of thing, you know
secondary device. . . . I just heard like an explosion and then a cracking type of noise, and then it sounded like a freight train, rumbling and
picking up speed, and I remember I looked up, and I saw it coming down."
Emergency medical technician Michael Ober said: "We heard a rumble, some twisting metal, we looked up in the air, and . . . it looked to me just like
an explosion. It didn't look like the building was coming down, it looked like just one floor had blown completely outside of it. . . . I didn't
think they were coming down. I just froze and stood there looking at it.
"I started walking back up towards Vesey Street. I heard three explosions, and then we heard like groaning and grinding, and tower two started to
come down." -- Paramedic Kevin Darnowski
"I heard 3 loud explosions. I look up and the north tower is coming down now." --Gregg Brady, an emergency medical technician
"it almost sounded like bombs going off, like boom, boom, boom, like seven or eight." -- firefighter Thomas Turilli
"heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. . . . We then
realized the building started to come down." -- firefighter Craig Carlsen
"I . . . looked up out of the office window to see what seemed like perfectly synchronized explosions coming from each floor. . . . One after the
other, from top to bottom, with a fraction of a second between, the floors blew to pieces." --Wall Street Journal reporter John Bussey
Another Wall Street Journal reporter said that after seeing what appeared to be "individual floors, one after the other exploding outward," he
thought: "'My God, they're going to bring the building down.' And they, whoever they are, HAD SET CHARGES. . . . I saw the explosions."
"It just descended like a timed explosion--like when they are deliberately bringing a building down. . . . It was coming down so perfectly that in
one part of my brain I was thinking, 'They got everyone out, and they're bringing the building down because they have to" Beth Fertig of WNYC
"There were reports of an explosion right before the tower fell, then a strange sucking sound, and finally the sound of floors collapsing." Los
