When Matthew Rothschild, editor of the online magazine The Progressive, wrote an article called "Enough of the 9/11 Conspiracies, Already", we all knew he was not talking about the conspiracy theory that the US government sells us to justify the expanding 9/11 Wars. To the contrary, in writing that article Mr. Rothschild was selling that same theory himself. What he actually meant was that people should not question the US government's story of terror because credentialed experts have been found to support it. But the fact is that the experts found to support the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 are predominantly those who profit from doing so. That's not to say that all of these people were "part of the conspiracy". But they are, whether consciously or not, a part of the cover-up. And that, of course, is the greater crime.
The Bush Administration employed a number of such credentialed experts to give us multiple explanations for the unprecedented destruction of three tall steel-framed buildings at the World Trade Center (WTC). Unfortunately, all of those explanations have proven to be false, and this fact reminds us that academic credentials don't necessarily make a person more capable of, or more likely to, tell the truth.
The only supposedly independent corroboration that the Bush scientists at NIST could produce for their appalling pack of lies was from that old respected scientific institution, Popular Mechanics. This Hearst magazine is not, as most people know, a scientific publication in any way, shape or form. When they talk about Mechanics, they do not mean Quantum Mechanics or Statistical Mechanics, or even Classical Mechanics. Popular Mechanics (PM) is simply a gloss-covered advertisement for numerous consumer items ranging from ATVs to lawn mowers. You know, mechanics.
FACT: The official explanations for the collapse of the World Trade Centre buildings (including WTC 7) are all demonstrably false.
The US government's version of events has no substantial evidence to support its "fire induced collapse" model. On the contrary, the so called 911 "conspiracy theorists" (who include many independent scientists not working for the US government), actually have a wealth of scientific proofs showing that the World Trade Centre Towers were subject to explosive demolition (ie. part of the 911 attacks must have involved inside help).
It is time to re-examine ALL the evidence, and act to bring about a real criminal investigation into the attacks of September 11.
