Arguably, no question surrounding 9/11 arouses more intense interest than this one. An investigation of 9/11 will certainly not be complete until we know who perpetrated the crimes and until they are brought to justice.
Crime scene investigators know that,
“Physical evidence cannot be wrong; it cannot perjure itself; it cannot be wholly absent. Only its interpretation can err.” (Paul Kirk, Crime Investigation)
Gathering and studying the physical evidence, then, is the crucial first step. The fact that the crime scene was disturbed and that evidence was hastily removed and destroyed has created challenges for investigators. Fortunately, evidence such as eyewitness accounts of explosions, the discovery of nano-thermite in the debris, and photographic evidence of molten steel in the rubble, revealed the effects of controlled demolitions and disproved the official story that three WTC high-rises were brought down by office fires and jet plane crashes.
So who committed the crimes of 9/11? Does the evidence still point to al Qaeda as claimed in the official story? If not, then who would have had the means, motive, opportunity, and the capability to perpetrate the crime? Who would have access to high tech nanothermite? Who would have had access through security to plant the incendiaries and/or explosives? Who would have the capability to cover up the crime via destruction of evidence and the creation of falsified building reports? Who would have the capability to censor almost all of the corporate mainstream media to keep the truth from coming out? These are the questions that free-thinking journalists and criminal investigators should be asking and reporting on….. but are not.
Many in the 9/11 truth movement are convinced that 9/11 was a false flag operation, a manufactured event devised by a group within the U.S. government, with the goal of turning popular opinion against Muslims, who were to be held responsible for the destruction. The ultimate goal, many believe, was to enlist popular support for wars in Muslim countries, to enact legislation such as the Patriot Act and executive orders such as the National Defense Authorization Act in order to curtail civil liberties, and vastly increase the Defense budget. This group maintains that the events of 9/11 could only have been perpetrated by factions within the U.S. government and industry. They make arguments based on motive, access, and means to carry out the crime. Some study the written and oral history of U.S. covert operations and point to suspects within the U.S. government and business community who have had connections to covert operations over the past several decades. They look for a web of associations between and among these powerful elites. They may attempt to construct plausible scenarios to explain how the crime could have taken place and how it was carried out without detection or interference from our international and domestic security agencies.
Others believe it is highly unlikely that members of the U.S. government would have, or could have, been behind the killing of almost 3,000 innocent people, mostly U.S. citizens. They find it hard to believe that there are Americans who would do such things, and even if there were, how their actions could have escaped detection, since events of this complexity would have required a significant number of collaborators, any of whom might have spoken out or confessed. Noam Chomsky is among those holding this view.
AE911Truth does not research or speculate on these issues. We do not have a political agenda. Our mission is to educate professionals, the public, and those in media and government about the evidence – and to support the pursuit of justice. We do anticipate that any search for truth would ultimately uncover who planned and who carried out the crime committed against an entire country that day. A real investigation would be empowered to obtain sworn testimony and the release of evidence; it would offer immunity in exchange for such testimony; it would examine all of the evidence and use the scientific method in pursuit of truth.
In the meantime, AE911 Truth concentrates on challenging the official story with scientific forensic evidence, eyewitness testimony, and video documentation. It offers in-depth reports and the opinion of its experts concerning the pursuit of justice. AE911 Truth also pursues legal action against agencies such as NIST in order to hold them accountable and to create momentum toward a real investigation of 9/11.
