BBC News 'Predicted' 9/11 WTC #7 Collapse; Corporation Denies Conspiracy Claims

 

Video footage of 9/11 news coverage by the BBC where the collapse of World Trade Center building 7 was announced over 20 minutes before it actually fell has conspiracy theorists buzzing and the BBC issuing a statement that its tapes are lost.

The video, posted on various websites, shows news reporter Jane Standley announcing the building's collapse while it is still intact and in clear view behind her left shoulder. The BBC claims it was a simple reporting error.

BBC editor Richard Porter, responding to the conspiracy claims, says that they 'no longer have' the original tapes of the news corporations 9/11 coverage, fueling speculation that the Tower 7 collapse was an 'inside job.'

Yes, of course! The BBC was in on it, too!

Let's ignore the fact that the 911 conspiracy idiots could be behind this "video footage" - bending the truth to make a case for their insanity is apr for the course.

That's right, the Bush administration - who couldn't even keep WIRETAPPING a secret - somehow managed to coordinate thousands of employees from different branches of the military and the federal government to organize an attack against the America people . . . in order to justify going to war and stripping civil rights.

Never mind the fact that the US has never needed a valid excuse to go to war or strip civil rights. No - the Bush administration risked it ALL, wasting millions of dollars and thousands of lives to plan, coordinate, execute, and keep a COMPLETE SECRET a completely unnecessary event.

What total horseshit.

  That's the problem with conspiracy theorist's...  
 
They never have the real footage.
 
  by: Fonzo   02/28/2007 12:22 AM     
  I can answer this one without trying  
 
The footage playing in the background is usually a time-shifted reel, not quite live.

You can usually tell the difference between live-on-the-scene footage and someone standing in front of a green screen as phase-shifted life footage is streamed into a compositing program.

Looking at that one tiny picture makes it hard to tell, but I'm leaning towards green screen.

You beat me to it. Occam's Razor for sure. To think something like a planned 9/11 attack would've included field reporters at the BBC. Roit.
 
  by: caution2     02/28/2007 01:15 AM     
  @lauriesman  
 
Whether a green screen was used or not is besides the point. Even without the visual imagery, you're still left with the fact that the BBC reported the WTC #7 collapse over 20 minutes before it went down. The exact timeline seems unclear because there is no live time displayed on the BBC footage, but given that the reporters say its been 'some 8 hours since the first attack' puts the time at about 5.45pm (the first attack was at about 8.45am) and Building 7 came down at 6.20pm. The jury in my head is still out on the whole issue but the resulting debate and analysis is going to be interesting.....
 
  by: Flashby     02/28/2007 01:18 AM     
  correction:  
 
that should read: '.....given that the reporters say its been 'some 8 hours since the first attack' puts the time at about 4.45pm'. I never was good at maths ;)

"but given that the reporters say its been 'some 8 hours since the first attack' puts the time at about 5.45pm (the first attack was at about 8.45am) and Building 7 came down at 6.20pm."

Yes, they said "some eight hours", as in "around/about/nearly/in the neighbourhood of eight hours". Saying "some" makes a report flow more smoothly, and does not indicate a precise meaurement of time.

Mystery solved! No need to thank me.

  WTC7  
 
WTC7 should not have collapsed.

Say that and everyone thinks you a complete nutter. I think you guys are lacking in objectivity. The collapse of WTC7 is just too suspicious. There was no significant damage to the building at the time of its collapse.

PS. Conspiracies happen. 9/11 was a conspiracy. It was a conspiracy of muslim extremists.

Perhaps WTC7 was an insurance scam? People have done more for less!
 
  by: jendres     02/28/2007 02:00 AM     
  @jendres  
 
For WTC 7 to have been an insurance scam, someone would have had to have known ahead of time about a planned attack on the Twin Towers, called in a demolition team to quickly but thoroughly rig the place up, and then levelled it without leaving a shred of evidence of a controlled implosion.

That, or this "insurance scam" just happened to fortuitously coincide with the attacks.

Yeah. I'll stick with the original theory, thanks.

  Foreknowledge of WTC 7's Collapse  
 
This is newly covered at wtc7.net, here -

http://wtc7.net/...

That Jane Staldley was standing in front of a live view showing WTC 7 as she describes it in the past tense is virtually indisputable. The high-quality mpeg video clearly shows that she is in front of a row of windows in a tall building.
 
  by: researcher   02/28/2007 02:18 AM     
  Wow!  
 
Who could possible refute such rock-solid evidence?

Let the parade of idiocy begin.
 
  by: Volkova_Nova     02/28/2007 02:22 AM     
  @Volkova  
 
Controlled demolitions or a fire left to burn... Whatever. Besides, I suspect 8 hours would be enough time to demolish a building and no investigation of demolitions was ever performed so "evidence" is a moot point.

I expect people to quote professional demolitions experts etc, but perhaps military sappers would be a better source of the time it would take to demolish a building.

I'm still not convinced on WTC7 and will remain agnostic on that one.

So what exactly is your "original theory"?
 
  by: jendres     02/28/2007 02:23 AM     
  @jendres  
 
So which was it, then: however the building was "intentionally" destroyed, the person who did so knew ahead of time that there would be an attack on the nearby towers that the scammer could take advantage of, or was it just coincidental great timing?

The original theory, unless I'm mistaken, was that it *was* destroyed by fire, from debris from the Twin Towers.
 
  by: Volkova_Nova     02/28/2007 02:35 AM     
  get over it  
 
It's already been stated that WTC7 was brought down intentionally because of its closeness to the twin towers. Call me a crazy conspiracy wacko but the other towers were brought down intentionally as well, but that's another story.
 
  by: the_one   02/28/2007 03:39 AM     
  @volkova  
 
And that theory is pretty weak. I've heard "hot gasses through underground tunnels" and other arguments. The fire theory is still weak and has been admitted as such.

It should be noted that WTC7 housed a few important tenants, eg Secret Service, DoD and CIA. Perhaps these tenants had failsafe measures to ensure no sensitive information fell into the wrong hands. Who the hell knows? Not you and not I. But still something stinks about WTC7.

  @Volkova_Nova  
 
Heh... Call it a premonition. :)

They always come out the woodwork when these news articles are posted.

“You're not reading just the first few sentences of posts again, are you?”
No. I’ve been visiting this site for seven years, now. It was just a matter of time…
 
  by: CArnold     02/28/2007 03:57 AM     
  A few points  
 
1. NIST has still not been able to tell why WTC7 fell down.
2. Buildings closer to WTC7 with large fires and falling debris on them did not collapse
3. It was not hit by an aircraft and had no large fires
4. For it to collapse on it's own footprint all the supporting columns have to go at the same time, which is hardly possible due to fire on it's own

More importantly. How could 4 hijacked aircrafts fly around for almost 2hours for the last one and not be intercepted by NORAD. The average response time is about 15 min and is mandatory in all cases.

-Plenty of higher up people have questioned what has happened on 9/11:
Example: Senator Max Cleland - Former member of the 9/11 Commission, resigned in December 2003:
"I, as a member of the [9/11] Commission, cannot look any American in the eye... It is a national scandal... this White House wants to cover [9/11] up." More:
http://www.911blogger.com/...

Plenty of efforts were made to stop any investigations on 9/11:
http://tvnewslies.com/...

There were enough pre-warnings (these foreign):
http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/...

There have been military trainings with those buildings seen as targets.

So, the attacks didn't come as a surprise even if both of the "left" and the "right" say the same thing.

-Ron Paul (R) has warned for another gulf of Tonkin event to justify a war with Iran.
-Brzezinski has warned that a false flag event could be used and then blamed on Iran.

And most importantly
-9/11 was the New Pearl Harbor that was essential for the elite to go ahead with their plans for middle-east dominance which existed before 9/11.

9/11 has constantly been described as major opportunity and WAS extremely beneficial. Of that there can be little doubt.

  @volkova nova  
 
that is what the NIST suggested in 2004, but admit they aren't sure as they're still researching the event. they're also looking into how "hypothetical blast events" could've played a role. there was more structural damage than FEMA originally considered, citing video footage of bowing/cracking on the south facade shortly before collapse, due to a multistory gash from debris from the towers which would've taken out many columns responsible for much of the building's structural integrity.

http://wtc.nist.gov/...

"14. Why is the NIST investigation of the collapse of WTC 7 (the 47-story office building that collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, hours after the towers) taking so long to complete? Is a controlled demolition hypothesis being considered to explain the collapse?"

  @Conspiracy Theorists  
 
Does is not bother you that your points of views in re to 9/11 are considered one of the wackiest theories of ALL time?

http://www.2spare.com/...

According to this site, all of you rank right up there with:

- "Dinosauroid-like Alien Reptiles are dominating the World"
- "Barcodes are really intended to Control people"
- "U.S. military caused the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami"

and my favorite:

- "The Nazis had a Moon Base"


It would really bother me if the only people that didn't think I was crazy were the ones I played "Dungeons & Dragons" in the basement with.

Just saying...

  Well Carnold  
 
Aren't you one of those people that believe that Iran soon will have nuclear weapons and that Israel will be wiped off the face of the earth?

And really, 90% in USA believe in a God without any proof whatsoever?

According to a new New York Times/CBS News poll, only 16% of Americans think the government is telling the truth about 9/11:

"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%"

http://911blogger.com/...

C'mon we know it's a lie that they didn't have any information of the plans.

  by: ezanto   02/28/2007 05:45 AM     
  yeah  
 
You would really think that having the huge ass trade towers fall would be good enough to start a war if that was the purpose of the administration. Oh but lets make this one tower fall down 9 hour later and that will really make the american people rally for the cause. WTF?

Do any of you realize how much damage a few thousand tons of debris can cause to a building or especially its foundation? The other buildings didnt fall for the same reason not all the eggs break when you drop a carton.
 
  by: kuhl   02/28/2007 06:38 AM

Does it not bother you that you just lumped every single CT'er there is as being of the exact same thought process?

You really might want to check out some half-way respectable CT sights, you'll find there are many highly intelligent AND thought differentiated people.

Not all CT'ers are about global Ralian domination.

Well the truth is not democratic there will never be an investigation even tho there is reasonable doubt, you should even be able to admit that, and we will probly never know 100%.

If they had nothing to hide then why not yell out the anomalies to proclaim there innocence?

By the way there was ballpark 160,000,000,000 dollars in precious metals held under the trade centers during the attack, owned by companies all over the world, only 250 million were claimed?????????

And just a few weeks ago 8 BILLION cash tax dollars that were meant for relife in Iraq-Afgan mysteriously dissapeared. hmm wonder were that ended up

I don't think anyone on here as proposed a theory for 9/11. What I have seen, and agree with, is the expression of healthy skepticism and questioning oddities and inconsistencies.

I don't know what happened, but I am pretty sure there's a lot that all of us don't know.

  For you "Loose Change" Fans  
   
  by: ezanto   02/28/2007 08:18 AM     
  @this article...  
 
Just a few facts and to clarify some things which I don't think were mentioned:

1) The WTC's are supposed to not be able to collapse, but the jet-fuel heated the metal (near the core of the structure that that went all the way to the top) to a degree that it became unsafe and made the floors ABOVE the WTC collapse, which created a domino effect causing the building to collapse.

2) Some people think the structures near the WTC weren't as damaged (I know some buildings were damaged heavily though/taken out) as they should have been, but this is not true. Due to the massiveness of these buildings, gravity took over which made them pretty much fall straight down, and not sideways.

But I think this was all just coincidence about the news coverage 20 minutes before the actual collapse.

...just like Nostradamus "didn't" predict world war 2/ Adolf, or Napoleon...

Uhhh see how I slipped two sides into this argument? LOL

....That seemed so strange and bizarre to her
that she was ready to throw her notebook in the trash

memory in her in which she said, "Of course I'll go,

Still, she was obviously not completely
satisfied, for she tried one more time to abdicate her
position. "Why me?" she asked. "I'm not religious: I
don't understand these things: I don't even believe
them. I'm about the poorest choice you could make."

The answer came back very clearly, "On the
contrary; you are an excellent choice. In fact, the

"But why?" she anguished. And then, without a

Helen had no response to that. She knew the Voice

Whatever that long string of gibberish is supposed to mean, it looks like it took a while to peck out. An 'A' for effort.

@pornohippy

That's it? That's your rebuttal to logic and reason? "Pull it"?

Look - if WTC 7 was an insurance scam, than either the owner would have had to know about the attack before hand (not bloody likely) or he had a comprehensive precision demolition team rig the building and level it within a matter of hours - EXTREMELY unlikely given the timeframe.

"Pull it" indeed.

I hope this makes clear to everyone how unreliable any news source is. A janitor probably sold it to a collector of Conspiracy Theory memorabilia.

"BBC Loses Historic Archive Footage" is probably a better headline.

Volkova_Nova is standing on a street corner pretending to have an intellect, when suddenly a known liar with bloody hands runs by and says he just saw some brown people kill some other people. Based on this info Volkova_Nova sets about proving to himself that this is true by quoting other known liars and by insulting those who question the liar with the bloody hands who told the ridiculous cover story to begin with.

Now if Volkova_Nova actually knew how to use a sharp razor he would go here and start enlightening himself instead of pretending to use his tiny, little, dull razor.

Thanks for the cooperative research link, that has some really interesting articles, especially the 9/11 timeline.

I see Volkova_Nova is the duty SN assh*le. Anyone who thinks they can debunk anything by picking holes in Loose Change (a lame movie IMO) is a bit retarded and shallow. Everyone is a conspiracy theorist, its just a matter of which theory you choose to go for. None has been proved conclusively (if you call the 9/11 Commission conclusive then you really aren't concentrating). And to anyone who thinks it makes no difference what happened, it makes a hell of a difference, since the murderers are still at large and actively looking for a new victim. In a quest for truth nobody is above question. If you choose to blindly trust, without real question, good luck to you.

The woman reporting probably does not have that indepth a knowledge of the names of the buildings. Is it not possible that she simply got mixed up in her report, which buildings were which. I mean WTC 7 to me would indicate one of the actual towers pre 9/11. Keep in mind this was awfully quick happening and confusing

  The Plot Thickens...  
 
Some new footage has just come to light from BBC World's sister channel BBC News 24 and guess what???

They're also reporting the collapse of Building 7 at 4.54pm GMT (ie 9.54pm EST). In other words, almost 30 minutes before it actually did.

  Is BBC supposed to defend themselves on this?  
 
Truth is.... there are people in the world who hated America enough to destroy two prominent icons of Western culture.

I don't particularly think Bush and company constructed a means to start WW3 for their own financial gain, but I sure do see some of his cronies attempting to benefit from the capital sales of weapons and war-support material.

This whole thing probably does come down to a matter of the reporter not knowing what tower is what- it was the most confusing day in American history and everybody was in shock....

... what does disturb me, as others have mentioned-- the fact that BBC, the most reliable and austere news reporting agency, 'lost' some of the most valuable video footage of the century.

I'm certain there are some people around the world who videotaped the BBC footage from that day and still have their copies. The fact that BBC... lost... theirs doesn't alter what can most likely be proven.

If this is supposed to be in English, I'm guessing this is some sort of ad hominem attack, i.e., "Because Bush lied about other things, he must have lied about this."

As I said, rational logic dictates that the US has never needed a valid excuse to go to war or strip civil rights. ANY reason could have been given for doing these two things - there was no need for the Bush administration to have risked it ALL, wasting millions of dollars and thousands of lives to plan, coordinate, execute, this event, nor would it have been possible to keep it a COMPLETE SECRET.

@Flashby

"I see Volkova_Nova is the duty SN assh*le. Anyone who thinks they can debunk anything by picking holes in Loose Change (a lame movie IMO) is a bit retarded and shallow."

And I see that I must have struck a nerve here! Only the first link I provided debunked Loose Change - the other links have to do with debunking common 9-11 myths, the engingeering and physics behind the damage done, and so on.

Did Bush take advantage of 9-11 for his own benefit? Certainly, without a doubt. He used it as an excuse to invade two different countries and strip away a lot of American civil rights, not to mention his trampling of international law.

But for the same administration that wouldn't even keep WIRETAPPING a secret to have pulled this off is not only logisitically about as close to impossible as you can get, it would also have been completely unnecessary - hell, a faked video of Osama saying he was readying a nuclear weapon for use against the US would have been enough.

You can call me an asshole, or retarded, or whatever. I don't really give a shit. But at the very least, criticise accurately.

And I'm a GIRL god damn it. Stop saying "he/him/himself". It's right there on my visitor's card. I guess that underlines your superior research abilities.

  Listen guys...  
 
First of all an apology for some factual errors in my previous post. The times should, of course, read the opposite way round in terms of GMT and EST.

Now, I don't want to show disrespect to anyone but the people who are submitting posts such as 'she was probably confused about which tower was which' are completely missing the point. Let's take this slowly....using New York time to avoid confusion.

Jane Standley was a BBC New York Correspondent covering the events of that day.

At around 4.54pm, she started broadcasting reports of a building that had collapsed. Apart from the Twin Towers, no other buildings had collapsed in the complex at that point. Presumably, we can all agree the additional building she referred to wasn't one of the Twin Towers. So, then she identifies the new collapse as The Salomon Brothers Building (ie. WTC7) and correctly identifies it as having 47 storeys. So, not much confusion there.
Thirty minutes later that building does, indeed, collapse.
No plane hit it. No major structural damage. No intense fires.
Now, no-one is seriously suggesting the BBC were in on some kind of plot but they were reporting 30 minutes early on a building collapse. That story had to have come from somewhere - another media outlet, a newswire, or a government source. Whoever it was demonstrated prior knowledge of the intended collapse. Intended collapse!
Controlled demolition which had to have been planned in advance - and not some decision made on the day by either the NYFD or Larry Silverstein.
Therefore, my friends you have primae facie evidence of a pre-planned plot or (dirty word alert) conspiracy.
 
  by: culcrieff   02/28/2007 06:37 PM     
  yeah  
 
And who is more of a nutt ,he who belives that 19 muslims with a boxcutters hijacked 4 planes and hit with 75% accuracy exactly when NORAD was executing a drill about that. And Osama planned and coordinated these atacks in some cave in the middle of nowhere ? And on the other side there's a theory about government who had the money, the motive and secret service at their disposal. Come on, but the media says that we are the crazy ones.
 
  by: myno   02/28/2007 06:53 PM     
  @culcrieff  
 
My feeling is (if it was pre-planned) that news of the intended collapse was prematurely released through the AP newswire or something similar because CNN delivered a similar report. The BBC was probably totally unaware that the building behind the reporter was WTC 7 and just reported what they were told as they were told it. Then, 5 minutes before the building was 'pulled' and 15 minutes after the mistake had been made the transmission was cut. And the BBC didn't just report that the building had come down - they also reported casualty details (that there weren't any) and other 'facts' which later formed the official account (except one person actually WAS killed in WTC 7, but that isn't mentioned officially). Put all of this next to eye witness accounts of the build-up to the collapse and it would seem to be consistent with the theory that WTC 7 was demolished in a pre-planned manner. All I know is that there are more questions than answers, and the ppl who follow the official line tend to think up answers instead of actually comming up with factual explanations.
 
  by: Flashby     02/28/2007 06:55 PM     
  @ Flashby  
 
I agree.
That seems to be exactly what happened.
Somebody, somewhere released this news too early. CNN & BBC then broadcast it and have provided us with a very clear piece of evidence towards proving some degree of pre-planning by the authorities on 9/11.

  Why is this so hard to consider?  
 
No one said the BBC is part of the conspiracy; they just got the info early and reported on it. They were not in on it.
People think that something like this couldn’t be kept a secret? Are you crazy out of all things, this is the one thing they would probably strive to keep secret. So what? because they couldn’t keep the wire tap program a secret decrees that they cant keep any secrets, so you don’t think there are any government secrets right now? or classified projects going on right now? Manhattan Project was kept secret for how long? Till the bombs blew up over Japan? Sr-71 Blackbird was kept secret... Maybe they purposely leaked the wiretap so people could give that excuse. Who knows... the simple fact; probably for every 1 secret that is leaked there are 30 other well kept secrets. Another thing, a lot of people, especially fox people refer to the show 24, saying " oh look at 24 that could really happen to us" do they fail to realize that the whole premise of last season that led up to the conclusion was that the president and some of his staff were behind the attacks. And even this season now people in the administration are plotting to kill the president and blame it on someone else, sound familiar? So hey if these crazy conspiracies can happen in 24, maybe they can happen in real life… Do yourselves a favor and check out the fbi’s own website and see what Bin laden is wanted for, because it isn’t for 9/11 because they say that there is not enough evidence to connect him to it.

Good lord Banshee, I find it hard to just turn the other cheek at the lost lives of 3,000 people.

If there are additional guilty parties involved than shouldn't we investigate this further, no matter where the trail may lead us, even if it goes up our own governments chain of command? Which is a very frightening thought.

I hope there is further investigation that follows, and the idea of sweeping suspicion under the rug does not get pushed through.

I'm not going to dwell on it anymore. I researched 9/11 for probably 4-5 years before I found that out. The more that I researched, the more uncertain I became.

  The BBC's Behaviour Regarding 9/11 is BIZARRE  
 
A week before this pre-knowledge the BBC had of WTC 7's collapse, before anyone else in the world knew . . . was preceded by a bizarre BBC attack piece on anyone questioning the events of 9/11 and the official story.

In the BBC documentary they interviewed non-professional lay people about the "sanity" of anyone questioning 9/11.

HOWEVER, the BBC purposely AVOIDED interviewing the physicists, engineers, military and intelligence experts who believe 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB.

Many were there talking to the BBC, including a NYC policeman who was there at 9/11. But, the BBC refused him air time, rather giving it to a TV producer who called anyone questioning 9/11 "deluded."

The BBC now claims it has "lost" the most precious footage in modern media history ??????

You can read high level military and intelligence experts who believe 9/11 was an inside job. After you do, ask yourself this, "Why did the BBC avoid all these people in its 9/11 documentary?"

I could understand your logic if it was all consigned to the past, but the ppl who may have brought all of this about are still there and are continuing to do their thing. If someone was murdered and the true killer never bought to justice, would you react by saying 'ah, well, its in the past, it can't be changed' and let the murderer carry on murdering others? If so, you presumably wish that nothing had been done following the 9/11 attacks, which is crazy. Until the remaining questions surrounding 9/11 are answered the case remains open, since there is a reasonable chance that justice has not been done and it could happen again. Are you happy about Iraq? Are you ok with the thought of war with Iran? Are you ok with the prospect of an open-ended war that will never be concluded? If the true account of 9/11 and the 'war on terror' is significantly different to what we've been led to believe (and many believe that it may be) then we can't bury our heads in the sand and pretend that a peaceful future is assured.
 
  by: Flashby     02/28/2007 08:44 PM     
  No  
 
but all these wars and tickets for a specific group to do as they please are always kick started by refering to 9/11. because people are still attached to that event. the holocaust happened, the genocide in rwanda, armenia, serbia,darfur etc... happened. Yet we all clutch at the word holocaust and hardly show any emotion towards the other events or even now they existed. Why? because specific things are used against us citizens to make us do what the powerful want us to do, hate who they want us to hate and happily send our children to war when they want us to.

Yes, I am happy. I don't believe that problems can be solved with the same level of thinking which created them; those being ill content, unhappiness or ungratefulness. We can see this in abundance in the forum. Is anyone helping to solve the problem or perpetuate it by arguing who did what?

If those things must come to pass then I will accept them as well. Until then, I'm doing what I can at the moment to prevent any unfortunate eventualities.

Voltaire once remarked:
“Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.”

Anyway, it really disheartens me to see people turning a blind eye to information. That's never a good idea. Most of these "conspiracy theorists", as you closed-minded individuals like to put it, are simply asking questions. Few, if any, are pretending to have all the answers. However, some of you claim to "know" that nothing shady happened here. Some people want answers, other say they have them all when they most-assuredly do not. Why did the BBC report the collapse before it happened? Why did the building fall perfectly straight into a neat stack in six seconds? Why were the towers the only steel towers ever to fall due to fire? Just questions... no need to get up in arms about it... unless it really makes you doubt what you "know".

  History Repeating?  
 
Before you go off down the "tin hat conspiracy nuts" road. Let's take a look back at history. Now this no anti-German stuff or anything like that. Just a historical reference. Back in the day, if someone suggested that the Nazis torched the Reichstag building as a means of causing fear and panic among the population, and to blame the communists so they could easily eliminate them and help themselves rise to power; or the events that lead to the invasions of Poland and Czechoslovakia were staged for the Nazi's benefit; they would have been called "nuts" at best, and we won't get into the worst. Yet, today we know it all to be true. Now, many years later, with much more sophisticated technologies of all types (including propaganda abilities) than they had back in the 1930s, is it possible that 911, the Iraq war, the saber rattling with Iran etc. are modern day equivalents of the events of the 1930s? Something to consider.

I agree, about not living in fear. I just want to point out that we need to be aware of who is doing what.

I watched a video of a retired German intelligence official. He said that staging an attack on yourself as an excuse to attack your enemy, panicking the public in the process so they will get behind the attack, is the "oldest trick in the book", probably dating back at least to the ancient Chinese. When you consider that the folks in Washington right now aren't exactly "Mother Theresas", and you consider the natural gas pipeline and opium poppies in Afghanistan, and oil in Iraq and Iran...

  9/11 standard  
 
There's only one important question concerning the attacks, did the US gov't allow/participate in 9/11?

The answer to that query would explain the illegal wire-taps, suspension of habeas corpus, opening of mail, banning of books like "America Deceived" from Wiki, detaining of dissenters in fences miles away from events, and multiple wars based on lies.

How can the gov't be innocent in 9/11 when we have caught it lying so many times (WACO, Ruby Ridge, no WMDs, USS Liberty, Operation Northwoods, Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor, collapse of WTC#7, ETC.)?

In law, if you determine a person lies ONCE during his testimony, it can be assumed that he lied in the remainder of his testimony. How come we do not hold the gov't to the same standard as it holds us to?

you said: '...i am just annoyed at those who still refer to 9/11 and how "the terrorists killed many people hence we should kill more"....'

That is exactly how I feel, which is why I want to find out if what 'we' are doing now is justified. If 9/11 was a setup or was allowed to happen then it is our own governments that we should be dealing with and not the thousands of innocent people who are currently on the receiving end of our military actions. If it transpired that the neocons had a hand in 9/11 would you not want some kind of justice to be done? Or would you be happy to allow such people to continue as they are?

1. Disinfo Agent Troll: Paid to try to spin off the overwhelming 9/11 truth facts.

2. Sheeple: Fox-News viewer, and the primary reason the NWO is able to advance on our the continual elimination of all our freedoms.

3. 9/11 Truther: Modern day patriot that stands up for freedom at great risk to physical person and personal career.

The BBC (and now it seems CNN as well) were fed information that WTC7 had collapsed, 20 minutes before it actually did. They reported this news without verifying the truthfulness of the information, which is the only "sin" they can be accused of during that broadcast.

However, they now know the truth about 9/11, and their continued stonewalling of all facts about an inside job will buy them a charge of accomplice to murder, after the fact. There must be a huge amount of personal intimidation on them to force them to try to contain this story while it fairly explodes in the alternate media.

I haven't been called this many names since grade school. Apparently, contradicting the "information" presented by presenting logic, physics, and actual facts makes some people edgy.

Well, as banshee pointed out, the only certainty in this entire thing is that there will never be any certainty. While it's a shame that an otherwise lively discussion was marred by some low blows, apart from that, this has been very interesting over all.

If we stop questioning, we stop thinking. Good on those of you able to do so civilly.

  More Damning Information  
 
Not that we need further proof that WTC7 was a controlled demolition.

But... we have further proof.

WTC7 was designed and built to be extremely resilient and with redundant counter support, so even whole floors could be removed, and the structure would stand with no problems. It actually wound up being a fortified building within a building, completely immune to a symmetrical collapse at free-fall speed.

Who is the source of this information, you ask? Why it's good old Larry "pull-it" Silverstein himself!

Au contraire - I said "let the parade of idiocy begin", not "the parade of idiots". I was referring to the 'information' not the people.

As for the legitimacy behind some of the websites thus far posted - no comment. It is pretty fortunate, though, that none of you amazing investigators haven't been silenced by the US government for cracking this big secret wide open. I wonder why that would be?

Part of group believes government planned attacks

STOCKBRIDGE — As much as "mainstream America" might
wish it, the local members of the 9/11 Truth Movement
say their organization is not going away anytime soon.
"(An alternate theory of the attacks on Sept. 11,
2001, is) a scary thing for people to contemplate,"
said Renzo Del Molino. "And I understand that. The
realization that people in power are trying to hurt
us, and not help us, is very frightening to them. It's
frightening to me." View Full Story:

"The world situation is worsening to an alarming
degree. People all over the world are being called on
to help, and are making their individual contributions
as part of an overall prearranged plan. Part of the
plan is taking down "A Course in Miracles," and I am
fulfilling my part in the agreement, as you will
fulfill yours. You will be using abilities you
developed long ago, and which you are not really ready
to use again. Because of the acute emergency, however,
the usual slow, evolutionary process is being
by-passed in what might best be described as a
'celestial speed-up.'"

....That seemed so strange and bizarre to her
that she was ready to throw her notebook in the trash
basket, and yet it triggered something like a long ago
memory in her in which she said, "Of course I'll go,
Father: it's for such a little while."

Still, she was obviously not completely
satisfied, for she tried one more time to abdicate her
position. "Why me?" she asked. "I'm not religious: I
don't understand these things: I don't even believe
them. I'm about the poorest choice you could make."

The answer came back very clearly, "On the
contrary; you are an excellent choice. In fact, the
best."

"But why?" she anguished. And then, without a
hint of doubt she heard the answer: "Because you'll do
it."

Helen had no response to that. She knew the Voice
was right: she knew she would do it. And from that
moment on the future of "A Course in Miracles" was
set. Helen would "scribe" it to its completion, even
though she might raise loud objections all along the
way.

BBC Hit Piece a Tissue of Lies, Bias and Emotional
Manipulation - prisonplanet.com

Outraged truth community demands answers from Guy
Smith, immediate retractions and apologies urged,
savage agenda driven yellow journalism an insult to
the truth

The BBC's Conspiracy Files documentary about 9/11 was
a tissue of lies, bias and emotional manipulation from
beginning to end. Producer Guy Smith should be ashamed
of himself for inflicting this travesty of yellow
journalism upon the 9/11 truth movement and he is
assured to encounter a vociferous and outraged
response in its aftermath.

Separated into two categories below are a number of
questions intended to highlight Guy Smith's production
for what it was - a deliberate hit piece on the 9/11

If I got a friend and he kills somebody, then I don't link to HIS website for proof that he's not guilty.. Look at the world, look what is happening? Is it a better world after the launch of the "war on terror"? Is it safer? Did they lie to get the US into this war? Is the criminal elements within the us gov. not responsible for the killings of hundred of thousand people in Iraq?

I strongly suggest you tone down that hostility there.

"Your whole line of arguments.. What is this? Is it that 2+2 = 5 now ? Is good evil and evil good ? Is up down ? Does it help you to call people who think that 911 was an inside job (build on facts) for "911 conspiracy idiots" ?"

Interesting preamble.

"Your links are not valid.. If I got a friend and he kills somebody, then I don't link to HIS website for proof that he's not guilty.. "

You, my friend, have just made a logical fallacy called an 'a priori argument'. You start with the assumption ahead of time that Bush is responsible for the attacks, and then argue that linking to sites arguing his innocence for the attacks are 'not valid'.

Furthermore, my links are to someone who's found numerous holes in the movie Loose Change, a site explaining the physics involved in collapsing buildings, and another site debunking common myths about 911.

"Look at the world, look what is happening? Is it a better world after the launch of the "war on terror"? Is it safer? Did they lie to get the US into this war? Is the criminal elements within the us gov. not responsible for the killings of hundred of thousand people in Iraq?"

WTF? Do you read or skim?

I just said earlier that Bush HAS used the attacks to trample civil rights, to unjustly invade other countries, and to violate international law. I'm far from a supporter of Bush.

I'm beginning to regret ever saying this discussion is interesting and educational. For all the whining about name-calling, it seems like the bulk of the hostility is coming from one side of this issue in this thread.

Comment #55998 by Jail Bush Cheney Rumsfeld Joint Chiefs on 2/28 at 3:13 pm

From ‘Whitley’s Journal’ Wednesday February 28, 2007
http://www.unknowncountry.com/...

The 911 Script and the Age of Terror
Whitley Strieber

I must admit that I have been deeply shocked by a story that appeared today on my website, to the effect that the BBC reported the collapse of WTC Building 7 23 minutes before it actually took place. Previously, the BBC claimed that it had lost all of its 9/11 coverage, but this video has now surfaced. I watched it myself, and sat there with my blood literally running cold as I saw their reporter saying that Building 7 had collapsed while it was still visible behind her, perfectly intact.

Now, why wasn’t this just a simple mistake? For a simple reason: the collapse of Building 7 has been explained to us as a sort of freak accident that nobody expected.

It is, frankly, impossible that the BBC reporter’s statement was accidental. She is clearly seen reading from a teleprompter. she was reading a script, and that script had been put up on her teleprompter early.

Somebody wrote that script and distributed it to the media. I have long since abandoned the US media as a lost cause.

The American media is an anachronism, by ignoring the real news and running the silly stuff. Because of what appears to be an almost surrealistic belief that people cannot do bad things in concert, they missed Watergate. And they are missing 9/11 as well. They all are, and, in the end, they will be abandoned by the public because their silence and refusal to investigate are, in effect, lies spoken without words on behalf of what is coming to seem a devastating and widespread conspiracy against the lives of thousands of people, against western civilization and against human freedom at the deepest level.

And the scale of the thing is terrifying. If the BBC was reading a script, as it must have been, then they were all reading scripts, and not one reporter has come forward, not one editor, and there is not a breath of suggestion in the 9/11 Commission report that any such thing might have been happening.
The Bush presidency is a burnt-out rump, it would seem, reduced to this odd recent practice of sending its officials into harm’s way in the apparent hope that any misfortune befalling them will gain it some sympathy, even as the president prepares for the future by buying a large estate in Paraguay. (However, he might have done a little more research about that country before he bought, given that the Colorado Party, which has been in power since it was set up by Nazi sympathizers and German immigrants in 1947, is now facing a serious threat from Msgr. Fernando Lugo Méndez, a populist bishop who is likely to win the next general election.)

And then there is the terrifying prospect that another 9/11 will take place, but this time one so terrible that we will all desperately cleave to authority in the hope of preserving our lives, no matter who we think might be responsible. Anything less than a nuclear attack on one or more American cities would drive Bush from office, because it would reveal his entire anti-terrorism apparatus for the gimcrack sham that it is.

So it’s perfectly possible that nuclear weapons are already in our cities, and have been there for years. As the Bush presidency winds down, the only real question is, will they be used to bring the American people to heel, or will he choose the Paraguay option?

I used to believe that the Administration let 9/11 happen so that it could have an excuse to attack Iraq and destroy our freedoms. Given this latest piece of news, I think that anybody who seriously thinks that the whole event wasn’t carefully planned and fed to us as a scripted “news event” needs to have their head examined. It was planned, period. Otherwise this reporter wouldn’t have been announcing one of the disasters before it happened. It’s inescapable.

This is projection on your part.. It is you and not me who say that they(the criminal elements within the gov+mill. complex) are not behind this and then you link to their websites. So it is you who use evidence from part A to prove that part A is not involved in some kind of criminal affair.. Not me..

Why don't you address the real issues here? That they have been caught planing and doing this kind of activity before and that it is overwhelming evidence that it has happened again.. What about building 7 ??? Its just happened to fall ?? What about Silverstein admitting to "pull" building 7?

  I'm done  
 
The moment people started flooding this thread with copy/pasted 'information', new members appeared here linking to their sites, throwing around base insults and generally being hostile, all hope for a constructive discussion was lost.

If you're so convinced that such a thing happened, why are you wasting your energy running little websites, instead of actively trying to overthrow the Bush administration? Your accusing the heads of state of a very serious charge. If you believe this to be true, you have an obligation to take action. What are you wasting time for? What are you doing here? Do you really believe this, or are conspiracy theories just a hobby to you? I know if I believed my government was responsible for something like this, I'd do whatever it took to take action.

Something to consider: the 'information' you're posting, you claim is proof and/or evidence. Some of these sites and the people who run them have been around a long time. If this administration were capable of committing such a massive slaughter as 911 and be able to keep it a secret, surely they could assassinate any of these "investigators" and make it look like an accident. Yet that hasn't happened. All part of the campaign of deception, I'm sure. Pfft.

Just something to keep in mind. Enjoy your hit-count boosting, and your flooding.

Thats the illusion of 'democracy'. If dissenters started being bumped off then the population would wake up from its sleepwalk. Let them have their rants until their actions actually start having effects, then do something, but not before. Its not a complicated concept to understand, although the mechanics beneath it is undoubtedly so. As regards the '...If you're so convinced that such a thing happened, why are you wasting your energy running little websites...' comment - you are far too sure of yourself. Do you know what else these people are doing, other then the 15 minutes they may spend on SN? You will never know.......

The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that all potential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from view .. with all the evidence readily available at the pentagon crash site, any unbiased rational investigator could only conclude that a Boeing 757 did not fly into the Pentagon as alleged. Similarly, with all the evidence available at the Pennsylvania crash site, it was most doubtful that a passenger airliner caused the obvious hole in the ground and certainly not the Boeing 757 as alleged .. the most heinous conspiracy in our country's history "

Beyond this strange absence of airliner debris, there was no sign of the kind of damage one would expect from the impact of a large airliner... this visible evidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to the Sec of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who in an unfortunate slip of the tongue referred to the aircraft that slammed into the Pentagon as a 'missile' ... I saw nothing of significance at the point of contact ~ no airplane metal or cargo debris was blowing on the lawn in front of the damaged building as smoke billowed from within the Pentagon .. all of us staring at the Pentagon that morning were indeed looking for such debris, but what we expected was not evident .. the same is true with regard to the damage we expected .. but I did not see this kind of damage. Rather, the facade had a rather small hole, no larger than 20 feet in diameter. Although this facade later collapsed, it remained standing for 30 0r 40 minutes, with the roof remaining relatively straight ..

  An appeal...  
 
On the morning of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, nineteen Islamic fundamentalist terrorists took control of four commercial airliners in the northeastern United States.

Flying through the world’s most congested airways, three of the aircraft reached their targets and crashed into sites of extreme significance – potent symbols of America’s economic and military power. Over 3,000 people died at the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in New York; The Pentagon just outside Washington, DC; and at Shanksville, Pennsylvania where the fourth airliner crashed.

The subsequent, world-changing events that these atrocities unleashed have resulted in further deaths whose exact numbers will never be known. The eventual toll will certainly number in the hundreds of thousands. For every single combatant killed (American and British military personnel; Iraqi soldiers and Islamist insurgent; or Afghani Taliban fighter), perhaps as many as one hundred civilians have perished. Every one of them somebody’s son or daughter. Husband or wife. Brother or sister. Father. Mother.

Whether we in the developed world agree with it or not, this conflict is being waged on our behalf by our governments. A number of countries have committed troops. Others have supplied support services and materials. Still more act as cheerleaders, never entering the field of play but supporting, nevertheless, this ‘War On Terror’. And another group have been cowed into something between acquiescence and fearful silence – taking seriously George W. Bush when he declares “you’re either with us, or you’re against us”.

Dissenting nations are few. Yet there are many dissenting voices – even in America and Britain, those countries most involved in the continuing military action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We now know that, as far as Iraq is concerned, we went to war on a lie.

This is not a debatable point. It is not a matter of opinion. We were lied to and despite subsequently being made aware of the lies both of our nation’s leaders were re-elected. We cannot, therefore, absolve ourselves of responsibility and blame our political leaders.

The only reason that coalition troops were sent to Iraq was to find and disable the Iraqi programmes to produce weapons of mass destruction. It was not about regime change. It was not about introducing democracy. It was sold to the public as a means of protecting our nations against possible use of these weapons against us.

Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction.

Our intelligence was not flawed, it was deceitful. UN weapons inspectors told us this was the case but were ignored. Some voices were raised in protest but they were silenced.

The only weapons of mass destruction inside Iraq belong to the US and the UK forces. After almost 4 years of occupation, coalition forces and weapons inspectors have found nothing of these fabled Iraqi programmes and they never will. Indeed, they are no longer even talked about or searched for.

Saddam Hussein was an evil dictator. No-one should lament his removal or his passing. He killed tens of thousands of his own people. He waged war against his neighbours.

In the war against Iran over one million people perished. A war, incidentally, in which Iraq was encouraged and supported by the Reagan Administration and its hawk-in-chief Donald Rumsfeld who visited Baghdad to assure Saddam of US support.

Of course, no-one supported his invasion of Kuwait which prompted the first Gulf War. We did, though, invent stories about Iraqi soldiers tearing Kuwaiti infants from incubators and carrying the medical equipment triumphantly back to Baghdad. Stories like this mobilised public opinion throughout the world and enabled our governments to commit troops to the liberation of Kuwait. Liberation, of course, only in the sense that we removed the Iraqis and handed control back to a small ruling elite of unelected emirs who have no intention of introducing Western democracy to their small, oil-rich nation. Luckily, though, they are a friendly, small, oil-rich nation so we didn’t feel the need to introduce democracy there.

So we are lied to. We know this. And we also know that when it suits our governments to do so, they ignore principles like democracy, freedom and human rights. There is a long list of repressive, brutal governments that have been supplied and supported by the US and the UK and a number of democratically-elected ones that we have destabilised or helped remove because they were not to our liking. Principles mean nothing in politics.

Forearmed with this knowledge then, are we not entitled to question any pronouncement from our governments? Even when it concerns an event as devastating and painful as 9/11?

Not only are we entitled, we are duty bound. It is our duty to hold our political leaders to account – it is the basis of the US Constitution and its unwritten equivalent in the UK. It is those who question and seek the truth who ar
