9/11 Controlled Demolition-Absolute Proof!!!
Fri Oct 21, 2005 16:47

In two speeches to overflow crowds in New York last weekend, notable
theologian David Ray Griffin argued that recently revealed evidence
seals the case that the Twin Towers and WTC-7 were destroyed by
controlled demolition with explosives. Despite the many enduring
mysteries of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Griffin concluded, "It is already
possible to know, beyond a reasonable doubt, one very important thing:
the destruction of the World Trade Center was an inside job,
orchestrated by terrorists within our own government."

On Oct. 15th and 16th, New Yorkers filled two venues to hear the
prominent theologian and author of two books on 9/11 give a
presentation entitled “The Destruction of the Trade Towers: A Christian
Theologian Speaks Out.” Dr. Griffin has continued to blaze a trail of
courage, leading where most media and elected officials have feared to
tread. His presentation went straight to the core of one of the most
powerful indictments of the official story, the collapse of the towers
and WTC 7.

Dr. Griffin included excerpts from the firemen’s tapes which were
recently released as a result of a prolonged court battle led by
victim’s families represented by attorney Norman Siegel and reported in
the NY Times. He also included statements by many witnesses. These
sources gave ample testimony giving evidence of explosions going off in
the buildings. A 12 minute film was shown for the audiences, who saw
for themselves the undeniable evidence for controlled demolition.

Dr. Griffin listed ten characteristics of the collapses which all
indicate that the buildings did not fall due to being struck by planes
or the ensuing fires. He explained the buildings fell suddenly without
any indication of collapse. They fell straight into their own footprint
at free-fall speed, meeting virtually no resistance as they fell--a
physical impossibility unless all vertical support was being
progressively removed by explosives severing the core columns. The
towers were built to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707 and 160 mile
per hour winds, and nothing about the plane crashes or ensuing fires
gave any indication of causing the kind of damage that would be
necessary to trigger even a partial or progressive collapse, much less
the shredding of the buildings into dust and fragments that could drop
at free-fall speed. The massive core columns--the most significant
structural feature of the buildings, whose very existence is denied in
the official 9/11 Commission Report--were severed into uniform 30 foot
sections, just right for the 30-foot trucks used to remove them quickly
before a real investigation could transpire. There was a volcanic-like
dust cloud from the concrete being pulverized, and no physical
mechanism other than explosives can begin to explain how so much of the
buildings' concrete was rendered into extremely fine dust. The debris
was ejected horizontally several hundred feet in huge fan shaped plumes
stretching in all directions, with telltale "squibs" following the path
of the explosives downward. These are all facts that have been avoided
by mainstream and even most of the alternative media. Again, these are
characteristics of the kind of controlled demolitions that news people
and firefighters were describing on the morning of 9/11. Those multiple
first-person descriptions of controlled demolition were hidden away for
almost four years by the City of New York until a lawsuit finally
forced the city to release them. Dr. Griffin's study of these accounts
has led him beyond his earlier questioning of the official story of the
collapses, to his above-quoted conclusion: The destruction of the three
WTC buildings with explosives by US government terrorists is no longer
a hypothesis, but a fact that has been proved beyond a reasonable

It’s important to note that Dr. Griffin is one of many prominent
intellectuals--including the likes of Gore Vidal, Howard Zinn, Peter
Dale Scott, Richard Falk, Paul Craig Roberts, Morgan Reynolds and Peter
Phillips--who have seen through the major discrepancies of the official
explanation of 9/11 and have risen to challenge it. These brave
individuals represent the tip of an ever-growing iceberg of discreet
9/11 skeptics. Indeed, 9/11 skepticism appears to be almost universal
among intellectuals who have examined the evidence, since there has not
yet been a single serious attempt to refute the case developed by Dr.
Griffin and such like-minded thinkers as Nafeez Ahmed and Mike Ruppert.
As for the general public, polls have shown that a strong majority of
Canadians (63%, Toronto Star, May '04) and half of New Yorkers (Zogby,
August 2004) agree that top US leaders conspired to murder nearly 3,000
Americans on 9/11/01.

How, then, can the mainstream US media continue to ignore the story of
the century? Perhaps the best answer was given by Dr. Griffin himself
in the conclusion of his talk, and is worth quoting at length:

"The evidence for this conclusion (that 9/11 was an inside job) has
thus far been largely ignored by the mainstream press, perhaps under
the guise of obeying President Bush’s advice not to tolerate
“outrageous conspiracy theories.” We have seen, however, that it is the
Bush administration’s conspiracy theory that is the outrageous one,
because it is violently contradicted by numerous facts, including some
basic laws of physics.

"There is, of course, another reason why the mainstream press has not
pointed out these contradictions. As a recent letter to the Los Angeles
Times said:

“'The number of contradictions in the official version of . . . 9/11
is so overwhelming that . . . it simply cannot be believed. Yet . . .
the official version cannot be abandoned because the implication of
rejecting it is far too disturbing: that we are subject to a government
conspiracy of ‘X-Files’ proportions and insidiousness.'

"The implications are indeed disturbing. Many people who know or at
least suspect the truth about 9/11 probably believe that revealing it
would be so disturbing to the American psyche, the American form of
government, and global stability that it is better to pretend to
believe the official version. I would suggest, however, that any merit
this argument may have had earlier has been overcome by more recent
events and realizations. Far more devastating to the American psyche,
the American form of government, and the world as a whole will be the
continued rule of those who brought us 9/11, because the values
reflected in that horrendous event have been reflected in the Bush
administration’s lies to justify the attack on Iraq, its disregard for
environmental science and the Bill of Rights, its criminal negligence
both before and after Katrina, and now its apparent plan not only to
weaponize space but also to authorize the use of nuclear weapons in a
preemptive strike.

"In light of this situation and the facts discussed in this
lecture---as well as dozens of more problems in the official account of
9/11 discussed elsewhere---I call on the New York Times to take the
lead in finally exposing to the American people and the world the truth
about 9/11. Taking the lead on such a story will, of course, involve
enormous risks. But if there is any news organization with the power,
the prestige, and the credibility to break this story, it is the Times.
It performed yeoman service in getting the 9/11 oral histories
released. But now the welfare of our republic and perhaps even the
survival of our civilization depend on getting the truth about 9/11
exposed. I am calling on the Times to rise to the occasion."
