9/11 Official Story

Today is the 16th anniversary of the atrocity.

Facts: Nineteen men hijacked four fuel-loaded US commercial airplanes bound for west coast destinations.

A total of 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington, DC and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The attack was orchestrated by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

I’m very skeptical of the “official” story.

9.11 Remembrance 1min

A word from Chris Pratt:



I am one of only three people

I am one of only three people who address the issue of 9/11 on iBrattleboro.

A current article I submitted to iBrattleboro on Sunday was not given permission by the moderators and was not posted here.

The same Op/Ed piece, however, was published Saturday in the Reformer:

Letter: Don't believe in coincidences


Some people who question the official report note that no skyscraper has ever collapsed in less than two hours from fire, let alone three massive towers all in the same day. Indeed, no skyscraper has ever collapsed from fire, anywhere in the world.

In June 2017 a fire quickly engulfed the 27 story Grenfell Tower in London. After nearly five hours of intense burning, it was reported that, “at dawn the blaze still burned brightly against the pale sky, with flames especially hot in the middle section.” The “blackened hulk” of Grenfell Tower was later “determined to still be structurally sound.”

The World Trade Towers in the 2001 attack are noted for not becoming entirely engulfed in flames, yet it took firefighters 100 days to extinguish all the fires ignited by the initial fireballs of the two plane explosions. The Grenfell Tower fire took six hours to put out, but Tower 1 and Tower 2 blew apart in less than two hours.


Europhysics – “evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion”

Excerpt: http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=139480

A new forensic investigation into the collapse of the three World Trade Tower Center towers on 9/11, published in Europhysics News – a highly respected European physics magazine – claims that “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.

While many in the mainstream have attempted to label anyone questioning the official narrative as “tin foil hat” conspiracy theorists, many highly respected experts have come forward to lampoon the theory that the (3) buildings collapsed due to the intense heat and fires following two terrorist-directed plane crashes. Given the far-reaching implications, it is morally imperative that this hypothesis be the subject of a truly scientific and impartial investigation by responsible authorities” the four physicists conclude in the damning report.


Hold the Conspiracy theories for one day

Hold the Conspiracy theories for one day

I remember every horrid detail about that day. I will never forget it as long as I live. It was a dark, dark day in American history. This was a declaration of war, which was executed by cowards against people who didn't expect it and could not have defended it.

But what makes me bring all of this up again? Well, here it is: When we post things on social media, they can hurt. When we take a moment to post that the Sept. 11 attacks were a conspiracy theory on the anniversary of the attacks, then I honestly believe that you're not tethered to anyone's feelings (or maybe you just don't care). I'm not saying that you're not entitled to your feelings and I'm not saying that you shouldn't let your voice be heard. I encourage it. But on the actual day when nearly 3,000 innocent lives were taken, maybe it would be best to hold off for the day and post it on the day after. Because you never know who could be reading it. For all you know a 16-year-old who grew without a father could see it. What the hell is up with that?


“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact”

The hand of man on Sept. 11, 2001

“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact,” said Sherlock Holmes.

One problem with considering controlled demolition in the attack is that it suggests a conspiracy and collusion. You would proceed with the understanding that two forces were at work, one from within and one from without. The plane hijacking impacts were most certainly foreign elements. However, if the three massive towers were in fact wired for controlled demolition, the job was most certainly presided over from within.

Moreover, the controlled demolition would have been wired in advance of the attacks. The two scenarios must be taken together in order to explain the pulverization of the three towers and the speed and symmetry of their collapses.

When you factor in that most of the body count was comprised of bone fragments and splinters with few whole bodies or large body parts, the evidence defies the official fire collapse theory.
