Former Chief of NIST's Fire Science Division Calls for Independent Review of World Trade Center Investigation
Wednesday, 22 August 2007 00:00

James Quintiere, Ph.D., former Chief of the Fire Science Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has called for an independent review of NIST's investigation into the collapses of the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11.

Dr. Quintiere made his plea during his presentation, "Questions on the WTC Investigations" at the 2007 World Fire Safety Conference. "I wish that there would be a peer review of this," he said, referring to the NIST investigation. "I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they've done; both structurally and from a fire point of view."

"I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable," explained Dr. Quintiere. "Let's look at real alternatives that might have been the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Towers and how that relates to the official cause and what's the significance of one cause versus another."

Why the Towers Fell: Two Theories

Civil/Structural Engineer Supports Controlled Demolition Theory

Having worked on structural steel buildings as a civil engineer in the era when the Twin Towers were designed and constructed, I found some disturbing discrepancies and omissions concerning their collapse on 9/11.

I was particularly interested in the two PBS documentaries that explained the prevailing theories as determined by two government agencies, FEMA and NIST (National Institute of Science and Technology). The first (2002) PBS documentary, Why the Towers Fell, discussed how the floor truss connectors failed and caused a “progressive pancake collapse.”

The subsequent 2006 repackaged documentary Building on Ground Zero explained that the connectors held, but that the columns failed, which is also unlikely. Without mentioning the word “concrete,” the latter documentary compared the three-second collapse of the concrete Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building with that of the Twin Towers that were of structural steel. The collapse of a concrete-framed building cannot be compared with that of a structural steel-framed building.

This takes guts!
Saturday, 12 May 2007 00:00 Architect brings the evidence for controlled demolition on 9/11 to large SF area Architecture Firm.


As part of the "11th of every month" events around the country yesterday, Richard Gage, AIA gave a one-hour presentation on WTC 7 to roughly 40 architects and staff members at a large office in the SF Bay Area. It's not an easy thing to bring such a hot potato into an office of conservative building professionals, but that's exactly what Richard did yesterday, delivering a confident, scaled down version of his 2-hour presentation to over half of the firm's staff...

When asked if anyone still believed that WTC 7 was destroyed by fire, no one raised a hand or contested his thesis about the building's demise. Most expressed eagerness to see his follow-up talk on WTC 1 and 2 later in the month - to be held on 6/12/07 at the East Bay Chapter of the AIA in Oakland at 12:00noon. Richard provided handouts and free copies of 911 Mysteries for people to take home after the presentation.

Many of the architects have already signed the petition calling for a new new investigation of 9/11. I think he'll be successful as he continues to deliver this lecture to other gatherings of architects and professionals. Architects and engineers have generally avoided the 9/11 topic for a variety of reasons, but when faced with the facts, as Richard delivered yesterday, the taboo has been lifted enough for other "experts" to become part of the Truth movement without the fear of isolation.

My hat off to you Richard for all you are doing!

California architect to deliver presentation on World Trade Center collapses
Local architects, engineers, police, firefighters and paramedics to attend events at University of Manitoba & Fort Garry Hotel

10 May 2007

Richard Gage, AIA, Architect, a Berkeley, California-based designer of fireproofed steel-framed buildings, will be in Winnipeg on Tuesday, May 29 to deliver a pair of lectures explaining the controversial 2001 collapses of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers and the 47-storey WTC 7.

Mr. Gage's first lecture will be on Tuesday 29 May 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at the University of Manitoba's University Centre, Room 210. The public is invited and the event is free, with a recommended $5 donation. Also speaking that day will be noted media critic Barrie Zwicker of Vision TV fame, author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11 (New Society Publishers, 2006). There will also be a screening of the documentary 9/11 Mysteries. Winnipeg Chiropractor Dr. Joe Hawkins will serve as Master of Ceremonies, presiding over a question-and-answer period following the film and the lectures.

Independent Investigators Release Suppressed Blueprints of Destroyed World Trade Center Tower
Tuesday, 01 May 2007 00:00

Scans of original drawings (found here) of the North Tower of the World Trade Center have been published online by a coalition of independent 9/11 researchers and

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2007 — A coalition of independent 9/11 investigators and journalists today announced the online publication of a set of original blueprints of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The set is composed of over 200 never-before-published drawings, including plans, elevations, and details, given to physicist Dr. Steven E. Jones by an individual interested in a more complete analysis. Groups presenting the plans include Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, 9-11 Research, and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. A multi-resolution drawing viewer for the blueprints is located at 9-11 Research. Richard Gage, AIA, Architect, the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, said, "We cannot truly understand what happened in these historical structural failure events when we are not allowed access to the construction documents."

Gage believes that, given the profound differences in the official collapse theories, the need for more investigation is clear. "First they come up with the "pancake theory", then they changed it to the "column failure theory". We don't believe that either of those theories are supported by the available evidence."

What You Need to Know About the 9/11 Truth Movement

Found on 9/11 Blogger. (edited) []

(For the uninitiated, the unsure, and even the disgusted)

Before you go throwing around "wackos, wingbats, nutjobs and conspiracy theorists, etc..." or listening to those who are, learn a little about the people who call themselves the 9/11 Truth and Justice Movement:

1. The 9/11 truth movement is diverse, democratic, and non-partisan. This is not a far right-wing or far left-wing movement. There are Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hispanics, Whites, African Americans, rich, poor, PhD professors, college students, truck drivers, teachers, lawyers, doctors, architects, Reverends,atheists, democrats, republicans, and independents. There is no "type" of truther, because the truth knows neither religious, ethnic, social nor ideological boundaries.

2. The 9/11 Truth movement is not a conspiracy movement. Believe it or not, the majority of people involved in criticism of the government's official story (the 'official conspiracy theory' as many have come to call it) do not know what really happened on 9/11, and they admit that. However, in admitting this they demand that we all should and moreover must know the truth about what did happen. Most agree that whatever the government's story, it does not hold up to charges of at the very least, omission and distortion if not outright lying. The majority of people involved in the 9/11 Truth movement have far more questions than theories, and almost everyone will acknowledge that no conclusions are possible until a thorough, transparent, citizen-led investigation occurs without the obstructionist tactics and top-secret classifications that our government has become all too good at deploying.
