NY Times Billboard Kickoff Event?

ReThink911 Activists Take a Bite Out of the Big Apple

Seven NYC Street Events,Culminate in Major Times Square Rally On 12th Anniversary of 9/11

Written by Andrew Steele and AE911Truth Staff

Hundreds of Rethink911 activists made their presence felt on the streets of Manhattan with thought-provoking signs and banners

Editor’s Note: The historic events in Times Square last month are just the beginning for the ReThink911 campaign. We are working on some exciting projects for the next few months that have the potential to eclipse the success of our NYC billboard effort. Donate now to help us take ReThink911 to the next level!

On the twelfth anniversary of 9/11, a massive billboard mounted above Times Square asked New Yorkers if they were aware that a third New York skyscraper fell on that tragic day. For those who weren't already aware, the billboard was a curiosity that prompted them to rethink 9/11, if even for just a moment. For those who were aware, and who understood the implications of that third building's improbable destruction, the billboard was a symbol of collective triumph and a turning point in a massive effort to educate the public about the facts surrounding the most significant crimes in modern history.


AE911Truth honored at 9/11 Anniversary Conference

DC911Truth Hosts Top Speakers at Hotel Overlooking Pentagon

Written by Greg Baptista

Architect Richard Gage, AIA, beamed with pride when he accepted the conference’s top award on behalf of AE911Truth

On September 14-15,  just days after the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and as the historic ReThink911 campaign sparked questions and controversy around the world, researchers and supporters gathered at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA, for one of the most comprehensive national 9/11 Truth conferences in years: 9/11: Advancing the Truth, organized by (Association for Nine Eleven Truth Awareness), added a bonus event on Friday night, in which several of the most prominent researchers in the 9/11 Truth community tackled a wide range of topics surrounding 9/11.

The conference was also co-sponsored by Connecticut 9/11 Truth and Monterey, CA 9/11 Truth, with endorsements from additional 9/11 Truth groups. The conference room afforded participants an excellent view of the side of the Pentagon that was damaged on 9/11, as well as the officially claimed flight path of Flight 77 and another path, farther north, that some researchers believe was the real flight path of whatever struck-or appeared to strike-the Pentagon..


Encouraging the Senate to
ReThink 9/11

Constituents Join AE911Truth Experts in DC Congressional Meetings

Written by Pamela Senzee

Forty-five year veteran structural engineer Rick Fowlkes PE, Pamela Senzee, and fire protection engineer and Scott Grainger, FPE, were a force to be reckoned with in the halls of the Senate

The ReThink911 congressional outreach effort was a resounding success on September 16 - with over a dozen constituents seeking meetings with their Senators to discuss the 9/11 evidence. They were joined by AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, former Reagan White House policy analyst Barbara Honegger, M.S.

The team gathered in front of the U.S. Senate offices and proceeded to deliver packets of information about the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 to legislative correspondents. Most of the recipients seemed genuinely interested in passing along the information to the senators.

We even met up with Senator Jay Rockefeller in the hallway and walked awhile with him, telling him about the third tower that fell on 9/11, and provided him a VIP packet of DVDs and literature. Take that, Jay!

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization deeply rooted in the United States, has now become familiar to concerned citizens around the globe. Unconvinced by the official narrative of the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings on 9/11/2001, AE911Truth's international researchers and truth seekers have set out to explore the subject on their own in order to separate facts from (conspiracy) theories... and the latest product of our efforts is, where everyone can get instant access to translations of our most influential documentary.

With its purely scientific approach, AE911Truth arguably remains the most dependable source of information on the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers.

While English may not be the mother tongue of many who visit the site, the scarcity of resources in their own languages often leads them to search for solid information outside their linguistic comfort zones.

Controversy in Canada Capital: ReThink911 Ads in Ottawa Buses Spark Public Debate

Written by AE911Truth Staff

ReThink911 ads in Ottawa buses like this one received unprecedented attention from media sources across Canada

ReThink911 caused the greatest stir of its September 2013 campaign in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa, where 300 ads appeared on local buses from early September to early October asking riders, “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?”

The controversy first erupted on the night of September 11, when coverage of the campaign appeared on the CBC and Ottawa Citizen websites. Both articles quoted Ottawa City Councilor and Transit Commission Chair Diane Deans, who called the ads “insensitive” and indicated that she would request a review of Ottawa's advertising policy. In-depth reporting on ReThink911’s message by the Ottawa Citizen included a quote from Frank Wilson, the general manager of ad broker Pattison Outdoor, who affirmed that the ads conformed to the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards. “Everyone has a right to question whatever they want to,” he said. “I don’t think you need to be embroiled in conspiracy theory to wonder why... that at the end of the day this building just suddenly came down.”


AE911Truth Volunteer Spotlight: Elaine French, Verification Team Member

Written by Dick Scar, BSAE

AE911Truth volunteer Elaine French has single-handedly verified over 100 architects and engineers who signed our petition

The race for AE911Truth to reach 2,000 architect and engineer petition signers in August 2013 gave volunteer Elaine French just the challenge she was looking for.

A retired flight attendant living in Mesquite, NV, Elaine was introduced to the 9/11 Truth movement in 2006 when a friend sent her a link to the video Loose Change. In 2012, she visited the AE911Truth website after seeing one of our videos and learned that founder Richard Gage, AIA, would be speaking at a venue near her home. She offered to volunteer while at that event, and Richard gave her the assignment of updating his blog while he was on the 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out World Premiere tour.

Eventually, Elaine moved to the AE911Truth Verifications Team, where she has been confirming the credentials of US-based architects and engineers. She played a dominant role in ensuring that we had the signatures of 2000 A/Es on our petition by this year’s 9/11 anniversary.


Fraud Exposed
in NIST WTC 7 Reports
Part 5 of 5

Non-Existent Diesel Fuel Fire

Written by Chris Sarns

Chris Sarns has also been deeply involved in the work of AE911Truth, where he provides his expertise on WTC 7

Editor’s note: To this day most people, including many architects and engineers, are not aware that a third skyscraper, World Trade Center Building 7, mysteriously collapsed along with the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. The official report on this building’s collapse by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been challenged by many reputable and credentialed technical professionals. The NIST analysis has not undergone the rigors of scientific peer review – the typical pathway for validating significant scientific theories. Chris Sarns’ research appears in Dr. David Ray Griffin’s book titled “The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7.” A definitive study of what happens when political concerns are permitted to override science and the scientific method. With intellectual finesse worthy of a scientist, Griffin shows that NIST’s WTC 7 report has no scientific credibility. A must read for all concerned with the restoration of science to its ‘rightful place’ in our democracy.“--John D. Wyndham, Ph.D., Physics, Cambridge University; former Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology]” The studies below represent years of work by Chris in unraveling some of the most glaring inconsistencies and outright frauds in the NIST report on World Trade Center 7. He demonstrates that the NIST’s theory of the fire-induced collapse of Building 7 is faulty and misleading.

Standing Room Only at 9/11 Anniversary Event

Student Group Screens
9/11: Explosive Evidence –
Experts Speak Out
at Arizona State University

Written by AE911Truth Staff

Arizona State University students had a lively discussion about the explosive 9/11 evidence after the on-campus screening of Experts Speak Out

On the recent 12th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 World Trade Center attack, the 9/11 Studies & Outreach Club at ASU hosted its inaugural public outreach event. Roughly 30 students and local activists packed into the conference room at the Memorial Union to watch 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out. A lively discussion ensued.

A brief show of hands before the movie revealed that nobody in the crowd believed the official story, and only two were unsure. Based on the lopsided survey, event organizers elected to show just the first half hour of Experts Speak Out, which features the destruction of Building 7 and an introduction to the science behind controlled demolition. At least five people walked in during the film, but nobody walked out.

Some students chuckled at the nonsensical NIST computer simulation of WTC 7, which stops halfway and looks nothing like the nearly symmetrical collapse seen in videos. “It's no wonder that NIST refuses to release the contrived input data it used to make its model behave even remotely like the actual event,” noted event organizer Steve Cohn.
