The 9/11 Hijackers: Fraud in Official Video Exhibits Uncovered by Expert Panel
September 10, 2012, MarketWatch/Wall Street Journal
A Panel of 22 researchers into the history of 9/11 has uncovered evidence of fraud in the photographic images of Muslim hijackers prior to boarding the planes on 9/11. Court exhibits state that leader Mohamed Atta took a commuter flight from Portland, Maine, to connect to AA Flight 11 out of Boston, which hit the North Tower. The dubious images heighten the mystery of why Atta left Boston, where Flight 11 was to be hijacked, and risked the failure of his entire mission by driving to Portland September 10, staying overnight, and booking a tight connection back to Boston early September 11. The [9/11 Consensus] Panel‘s in-depth review shows the Portland story to be peppered with inconsistencies and revisions, placing the entire hijack theory in question. Similarly, at Washington’s Dulles International Airport, five hijackers allegedly passed through security before flying AA Flight 77, carrying CNN correspondent Barbara Olson, into the Pentagon. Yet no images were released from the 300+ security cameras at Dulles that morning, nor were Arabic men reported in FBI interviews of airport staff. The Panel has produced 28 Consensus Points of “best evidence” regarding the official claims of 9/11 — the trigger event for the Middle East wars of the last decade. Its investigations cover: explosives at the Twin Towers and Building WTC-7; the inadequate flying skills of the alleged Pentagon pilot; the missing debris from “Let’s Roll” Flight 93; the [many] military drills coinciding on 9/11, and the allegedly absent political and military commanders.

Engineers Suspect Diesel Fuel in Collapse of 7 World Trade Center
November 29, 2001, New York Times
Almost lost in the chaos of the collapse of the World Trade Center is a mystery that under normal circumstances would probably have captured the attention of the city and the world. That mystery is the collapse of a nearby 47-story, two-million-square-foot building. Engineers and other experts … were for weeks still stunned by what had happened to 7 World Trade Center. [They] struggle to explain the collapse. That building had housed, among other things, the mayor’s emergency command bunker. It tumbled to its knees shortly after 5:20 on the ugly evening of Sept. 11. Experts said no building like it, a modern, steel-reinforced high-rise, had ever collapsed because of an uncontrolled fire, and engineers have been trying to figure out exactly what happened and whether they should be worried about other buildings like it around the country. “Even though Building 7 didn’t get much attention in the media immediately, within the structural engineering community, it’s considered to be much more important to understand,” said William F. Baker, a partner in charge of structural engineering at the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. “They say, ‘We know what happened at 1 and 2, but why did 7 come down?'” Jonathan Barnett, a professor of fire protection engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, said a definitive answer to the question of what happened in 7 World Trade Center is perhaps the most important question facing investigators. “It’s just like when you investigate a plane crash. If we find a weakness in the building or a deficiency in the building that causes that collapse, we then want to find that weakness in other buildings and fix it.”
Note: Though this articles blames the WTC 7 collapse on a diesel fuel fire, over 1,500 architects and engineers say this is impossible. A New York Times article states that some of the I-beams at WTC 7, “once five-eighths of an inch thick, had vaporized.” For powerful evidence presented by experts that World Trade Center 7 was brought down by explosives, click here. And don’t miss the PBS special, “9/11 Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out”, in which 40 whistle-blowing architects and engineers present astounding evidence of controlled demolition at World Trade Center 7.
Scarred Steel Holds Clues, And Remedies
October 2, 2001, New York Times
On his first night in the city to collect scientific data on the collapsed World Trade Center buildings, Dr. Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl looked out the window of his room at the Tribeca Grand Hotel and saw a flatbed truck parked outside. By chance, trucks hauling steel from the trade center site paused there for an hour or two before proceeding to the docks, where the steel was loaded onto barges. Dr. Astaneh-Asl, a professor of structural engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, … went downstairs for a closer look. Over the next few nights, he cataloged 30 to 40 of the mighty beams and columns as trucks stopped in front of the hotel. ”I’ve found quite a number of interesting items,” he said. Dr. Astaneh-Asl hopes to conduct what is, in essence, an autopsy of the buildings felled by the terrorist attacks, to understand precisely how they fell apart. One piece Dr. Astaneh-Asl saw was a charred horizontal I-beam from 7 World Trade Center, a 47-story skyscraper that collapsed from fire eight hours after the attacks. The beam … had clearly endured searing temperatures. Parts of the flat top of the I, once five-eighths of an inch thick, had vaporized. Dr. Astaneh-Asl and other engineers had assumed that the estimated 310,000 tons of steel columns and beams were being taken to Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island with the rest of the debris, to be sifted by investigators. But because the steel provides no clues to the criminal investigation, New York City started sending it to recyclers.
Note: Normal fire cannot vaporize steel, so Dr. Astaneh-Asl’s finding clearly contradicts the official story. For an abundance of powerful evidence presented by respected architects and engineers that World Trade Center 7 was brought down by explosives, click here.
