Obviously anytime someone brings up "9/1l truth," a big red flashing alarm goes off in the average person's mind. "Conspiracy theorist!" "America hater!" These childish, knee-jerk reactions are to be expected.
Over a decade of propaganda will do that. Instead of seeing the unseen here, most Americans find comfort in the official story that has been spoon fed to them by the U.S. government and their lapdog corporate media since that horrific day in 2001. I don't blame them. It's much easier to believe in Santa Clause and his magical flying reindeer than it is understanding the factual story behind old Saint Nick.
If the U.S. government and the mainstream media are correct in their official story of 9/11, we have nothing to fear right? Except for freedom-hating, box cutter-wielding terrorists of course. But, if the official story of 9/11 is based on lies, then why are we fighting this never-ending "War on Terror" in the first place? If it can be scientifically proven that the official story is inaccurate, then shouldn't the American people demand a new investigation? There are a growing number of so-called "9/11 truthers" around the world that are calling for just that ... a new investigation into the happenings of Sept. 11.
Recently, a handful of hip hop artists including Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, Fabolous, the legendary Chuck D and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels have raised questions about the official story of 9/11. Lupe's Words I Never Said featured the lyrics "9/11, building 7, did they really pull it?" in reference to World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein's PBS appearance in which he described the WTC 7 collapse. These titans of hip hop are on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to another public figure who calls for a new investigation: Sarah Palin. Mama Grizzly herself has said that she supports a new investigation, but insists that she's not a "truther."
9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out, a recently released documentary from the 1,700 + architects and engineers for 9/11 Truth, was a viral hit on PBS earlier this month. Over 40 high-rise architects, structural engineers, demolition experts, and physicists give their expert opinions — which happen to contradict the official story.
University of California, Berkley, -educated structural engineer Kamal Obeid stated, "I have been a practicing engineer for the last 30 years. Building 7, to me, is really what gives it away ... because that's a classic case of controlled demolition."
He is not the only expert in his field who has drawn this conclusion. Counselors, therapists, and psychologists appear in the film to describe the difficult yet vital responsibility of coming to terms with the realities of these events. Most importantly, the family members of the 9/11 victims, who are still grieving their lost loved ones, give their pleas for a new investigation.
The "smoking gun," as many of these experts call it, is World Trade Center 7.
Building 7 was a 47-story high-rise over a football field away from the North Tower. It was not hit by a plane. Yet, it was the third modern steel frame skyscraper to fall rapidly and symmetrically on 9/11.
The official NIST explanation for the collapse of WTC 7 was "scattered office fires." Government engineers or engineers for 9/11 truth? You decide:
In fact, a few influential politicians have made interesting remarks concering WTC 7. Senator John Kerry made comments suggesting building 7 came down in a "controlled fasion." When confronted on his controversial comment, Kerry deined every suggesting that WTC 7 fell in that matter. Contrary to the official NIST explanation, Chairman of the 9/11 Commission and former Governor of New Jersey Thomas Kean claimed that "aftershocks" were responsible for the collapse of building 7. Of course, the 9/11 Commission Report fails to mention the collapse of WTC 7.
With all the evidence and expert opinions pointing to a controlled demoliton, the collapse of WTC 7 alone merits a new independent investigation. Watch the full documentary to get the experts' detailed analysis of all three buildings' collapses.
Armed with the research of these architects and engineers, President of Italy's Supreme Court Ferdinando Imposimato has stated publicy in writing that 9/11 was just like the "strategy of tension" carried out in Italy.
"The 9/11 attacks were a global state terror operation permitted by the administration of the USA, which had foreknowledge of the operation yet remained intentionally unresponsive in order to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq," he says.
Judge Imposimato goes on detailing the scientific research of Richard Gage and other architects and enginneers who point to controlled demolitions. He also singles out specific individuals involved in the intentional mishandling of intelligence leading up to 9/11. Imposimato announced that he is going to recommend that the International Criminal Court hold a criminal trial focusing on 9/11.
Since 9/11, America has taken a turn for the worst. Over 6,000 of our troops have perished in the resulting wars. More troops are dying from suicide than actual combat now. Countless innocents have fell victim to America's global War on Terror. And we now accept the fact that presidents can have secret kill lists to be used outside the rule of law. Sacrificing our liberty for assumed security is never a good idea. We have been conditioned to accept the rapidly expanding police state: the TSA gropedowns, the massive surveillance networks built to spy on the American people, NDAA, the PATRIOT Act, and drone usage over American skies. The Department of Homeland Security has even shifted it's Sauron-like gaze upon those who choose to defend liberty in the face of tyranny. Clearly, if all these "security" measures are taking place as a result of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, then we should have 100% confidence in the official story ... but as you can see, there are a growing number of highly credible people who are demanding a new investigation.
