9.11 investigation

NIST: "We are Unable to Provide a Full Explanation of the Total Collapse"

NIST, National Institute of Standards and Technology, will forever be "unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse" unless it stops covering up the evidence that the Twin Towers and Building 7 were brought down by controlled demolition.

On April 11th, 2007, family members Bill Doyle and Bob McIlvaine, scientists Steven Jones and Kevin Ryan, architect Richard Gage and the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice filed a petition with NIST demanding that it correct its erroneous methods and findings.

On September 27th, NIST finally replied.

While the reply is mainly bogus, and the filers of the petition intend to appeal the decision of NIST not to correct the many fatal errors in its reports, attorney James Gourley (who drafted the petition) has pointed out one interesting statement. Specifically, NIST says in its reply:

"We are unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse".

Well, yes! That's exactly the point the petitioners are trying to make. No modern steel frame high-rise building has ever collapsed before or after 9/11 due to fire other than at WTC 1, 2 and 7, even though other fires have burned longer and hotter. And even if they somehow did start to collapse, the collapse would not have occurred at virtual free-fall speeds while creating enormous dust clouds right from the start.

So yes . . . NIST will forever be "unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse" unless it stops covering up the evidence that the Twin Towers and Building 7 were brought down by controlled demolition.

It's not so much that the buildings came down, it's the way they came down... 17.Oct.2007 03:15

At free fall speed. Everything turned to dust. The explosions. And then there's the cover up. A year with no investigation at all, then a bogus one.

Just for a moment let's assume the official story is correct. Why did we attack Iraq and not Saudi Arabia?

Fire brought down the buildings? That's a big problem. What have we done to prevent this from happening again? Nothing. Why? Because fire didn't bring down the buildings and everybody knows this. They're just too chickenshit to talk about it.

Some say we should just forget about 911 because it's unprovable. How much proof do you need to see the obvious?

all knowing

even when i talk to the unknowing about this paticular issue - how the buildings were obviously brought down in a demolition style, they do not believe it. even showing the video footage and explaining that the buildings were reinforced to withstand the impact of say, a plane veering off course, they still look at me and the evidence blankly. that's the effect of mind control. of seeing ad nauseum the photos of bin laden and "fundamentalist" arab/muslims interspliced with the twin towers being hit by a plane. that's the story that is etched into their brains, and that is the one that they believe. end of story.

[From 911blogger today...]

Why Will People Want to Know the Truth?

The two basic ways to motivate people are threats of pain or promises of pleasure, or what's often called "the carrot and the stick". Everyone knows about this concept, but not many people have used it to understand how to more successfully spread 9/11 truth.

The Stick

Some people will want to know the truth about 9/11 in order to avoid the consequences of that false flag attack. Indeed, many 9/11 activists are motivated by the knowledge that false flag attacks are carried out in order to justify suspension of freedoms and liberties at home, imperial wars of conquest abroad, and consolidation of power in a small group of people. Many of us are motivated by the understanding that -- unless we expose the truth of 9/11 -- the perpetrators will be emboldened to carry out even bigger false flag operations to justify war against Iran (and other countries), to implement the Continuity of Government plans which will entirely bypass the traditional government, and will lead to even more overt suspension of liberty than we already have.

That's using the horrible consequences of not exposing 9/11 as a stick to motivate people to want to learn the truth. Its a good approach, and millions of people have become 9/11 truthers based upon this approach.

The Carrot

But we've all been ignoring the other way to motivate people: offering them something to look forward to.

Let's face it, America is not only the richest nation in the world, but the richest nation in history. While the richest handful of families own the lion's share of the wealth, many others are comfortable. And even those who aren't comfortable buy into the "American dream", and hope that they will one day strike it rich.

So many people want to maintain the status quo. But what is the status quo? Well, a discussion about war and murder by two CIA agents from the movie Three Days of the Condor pretty much sums it up:

Turner: "Do we have plans to invade the Middle East?"


Higgins: "It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In 10 or 15 years - food, Plutonium. And maybe even sooner. Now what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?

Turner : " Ask them."

Higgins: "Not now - then. Ask them when they're running out. Ask them when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask them when their engines stop. Ask them when people who've never known hunger start going hungry. Do you want to know something? They won't want us to ask them. They'll just want us to get it for them."

We're all starting to realize that the status quo is to commit murder, launch wars based upon false pretenses, and carry out false flag operations in order to secure resources. Unfortunately, 9/11 was a part of that status quo (remember that false flag terror didn't start with the Bush administration; its been done for a long time).

9/11 truth threatens to overturn the status quo. So unless we offer people something better than the status quo, they won't want to hear about it.
