Yellow Life Jackets Everywhere-- Real or Planted Plane Debris?

FDNY EMT Briam Smith: "So we went up to the 10-10 house...I remember there was life jackets everywhere, the yellow in-flight life jackets, and that the contrast of the yellow against all the gray, you know. It stood out."

Does this make any sense? These life jackets are normally carried under the seats on the plane. Why would there be multiple life jackets scattered around together, in the absence of other major plane debris-- and in the absence of multiple airplane seat cushions?

You could postulate that the jackets were lighter than many other items on the plane, and that they were ejected from the crash in the building and floated down. But why so many in one area, without other a large amount of other clear airplane debris? It seems improbable.

The jackets were on Liberty Street (going west from 10-10 house), according to Smith, and the picture above refers to Liberty Plaza-- this area would be consistent with life-jackets being blown out the South side of WTC1 by the crash of AA11. The picture of course shows an AA vest. If these are planted plane debris, it's pretty clever-- in the sense of the location, that they used an AA vest and that these were items that one would not immediately expect to be planted.

So it could be these vests as described by Smith were all planted by a very clever covert plane crash faking crew, or that just the vest on Liberty Plaza was planted and Smith was lying or confused. Or they could have been there from an AA plane hitting the tower.

It's quite hard to know.

One interesting bit is from Smith's testimony-- which is extremely long and I have not read all of it-- but he says how he saw the building, but wasn't sure what happened, thought maybe a bomb went off in it, because he didn't see any obvious plane debris such as a "big wing" stuck in the tower (page 19).

At this point, the interviewer says "Q . You don't have to follow that. Just keep going."

And THEN, Smith goes into the story about the life jackets. So initially, Smith was expressing doubt about the plane story, then the interviewer makes him switch gears, then immediately Smith brings up the life jacket story. Almost as if the interviewer was keeping Smith "on script".

So were there life jackets everywhere on the street? I would be more convinced if another witness corroborated that-- or if there were good photos of the life vests on the ground.

Aircraft Parts Around the WTC-- Evidence of Plane Crashes or Planted Evidence or Both?

One of the "best" collection of plane part pictures and plane part witnesses for the WTC that I've seen is here.

The idea of the pictures and testimonies, of course, is that they are supposed to disprove the no-plane theory by showing how much plane debris was found around the WTC.

The two major explanations for these pictures and witness accounts of plane debris are:
1) the debris was real-- originated from planes that crashed into the towers
2) the debris was fake (either planted or the pictures faked)

Now, to be bona fide evidence of WTC plane debris, the picture should: show clear plane debris, show the debris in context (at some identifiable WTC location) and preferably be a shot taken on the day of 9/11-- not some much later time-point.

In the page, there are 27 pictures. Only 14 of these pictures clearly show airplane debris. Of these 14 pictures, only 7 show context and are on the day of 9/11-- and of these 7, two pictures show the same object (the ludicrous tire in the columns)-- so really this is only 6 pieces of debris. Of course, all of these pieces together are a tiny, tiny fraction of what would be expected for a plane crash. It almost goes without saying that all 6 of these pieces could be planted without too much trouble -- and it is clear that the engine and the two wheels are suspect (the engine and one wheel are both under scaffolding, the other wheel is only loosely stuck between the columns and we are supposed to believe this survived a thousand foot fall).

Overall, if there are these pictures, there should be far more clear pictures of WTC aircraft debris if the debris is "real". Are these sitting somewhere unpublished? Why would so few pictures be on the web if they are trying to convince people that there were crashed aircraft that produced debris?

Then there is stuff like this-- which makes no sense, and probably represents such obviously planted debris that now the perps don't want to draw any further attention to it.

Now, there still is the issue of the plane debris eyewitnesses, a large number of whom have been compiled on the page. With the exception of the bullshit passport story, this evidence is striking. Of course, there are problems with this evidence, much like the pictorial evidence. Much of the testimony firemen, EMTs and policemen is recounted much later, when the airplane story had been pounded into the public consciousness. These people could have seen real debris, but they may well have also seen planted debris, building debris that looked like plane parts, had faulty memories or even lied about seeing debris.

One thing that is bizarre about all the descriptions of big pieces of plane debris is how the videos show the south tower plane slicing into the tower with virtually nothing breaking off, and with very limited debris being ejected out the other side. The north tower hit was at a higher spot on the tower, with lighter columns, and thus it is difficult to see why that plane would have more debris break off going in than the south tower plane. Perhaps more debris would have exited out the other side of the north tower, and this does correspond to the plane tires that were found.

Another odd part of the testimonies is how many refer to engine pieces hitting cars-- yet there are no pictures of this. And how many engines WERE there, anyway?

This is the funniest story: "One security officer reported that while the engine of the first plane had landed in the [Marriot] swimming pool, everyone in the health club was fine, and all were being brought to the lobby."

It's a bit odd that if the engine actually made it through WTC1, to land on the Marriot (crashed through the roof?), that it wouldn't have gone much FURTHER-- like, for instance, the landing gear wheel.

Fuselage Debris Near the WTC

From here:

Clipped from a slide presented in a talk by Steven Jones:

Are these shots showing the same thing? It seems to be the same piece of debris. But in the lower shot, where the hell are the huge buildings that should be in the background? Why do we see what looks like trees and clear sky?

In the upper shot, we see a couple of manholes near the debris. It seems as though both the plane piece and the chunk of plaster next to it have been moved very slightly between the two pics. It's also not clear if that striped object to the right of the debris is there in the upper pic.

While we're talking about mystery debris, there is also this.

Economic Items From the H.E.O. Archives

About one year ago, the US national debt was 9 trillion (Bush started in 2000 with a 5.6 trillion dollar debt). Now, the US national debt is ten trillion. One trillion in new debt in the past year!

Back in March 2008, Paul Krugman presciently predicted the financial crisis would be a more important issue in the presidential election than Iraq.

"Spreading the Wealth" "Socialism"

One of the most idiotic campaign issues I've ever seen, since the McCain campaign is using it in reference to progressive taxation-- something that's long been a feature of the US system. Even more than progressive taxation, social security and medicare programs clearly "spread the wealth" around. Now, to be even more idiotic, McCain is saying he's all in favor of social welfare programs-- it's the "American way".

Shorter Orson Scott Card

The mortgage crisis is the greatest scandal of the past ten years, it's all the Democrats' fault because they were paid off by Fannie Mae, though the media is also to blame for not reporting this, but they won't because they are in the tank for the Dems!!!

I only post this as it's such a perfect example of conservative hackery and ignorance.

Facts can be funny things:
Subprime lending was at its height from 2004 to 2006.

Federal Reserve Board data show that:
* More than 84 percent of the subprime mortgages in 2006 were issued by private lending institutions.
* Private firms made nearly 83 percent of the subprime loans to low- and moderate-income borrowers that year.
* Only one of the top 25 subprime lenders in 2006 was directly subject to the housing law that's being lambasted by conservative critics.


Fannie, the Federal National Mortgage Association, and Freddie, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., don't lend money, to minorities or anyone else, however. They purchase loans from the private lenders who actually underwrite the loans.

Note, 2004 to 2006 was when the Republicans were in total control of the federal government.

Lots of Aircraft Parts Around the WTC

Someone sure was busy planting them!

If it weren't for this nonsense with the wheel stuck in the columns, I'd actually say a real aircraft hit the North tower.

Death by Capitalism

Good overview of the financial crisis, with a major irony:
...least affected by the crisis are Islamic banks.

They have largely been immune to the collapse because Islamic banking prohibits the acquisition of wealth via gambling (or alcohol, tobacco, pornography, or stocks in armaments companies), and forbids the buying and selling of a debt as well as usury. Additionally, Shari'ah banking laws forbid investing in any company with debts that exceed thirty percent.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. (Thomas Jefferson, US President; 1743 - 1826)

More Evidence Bazant Is Full of Crap!

In Bazant's recent "rebuttal" to James Gourley in the Journal of Experimental Mechanics, he discussed how his model rules out that a significant "crush-up" of the upper stories occurs coincident with the "crush-down" of the lower section of tower.

Bazant writes that his model predicts-- "The crush-up simultaneous with the crush down is found to have advanced into the overlying story by only 37 mm for the North Tower and 26 mm for the South Tower."

So he claims (which on its face is laughable) that there was only one inch of the upper tower section destroyed as it went down, crushing the lower tower down.

The problem is that 26 mm for the South tower doesn't even COME CLOSE TO REALITY:

Clearly, AT LEAST ten stories have "crushed up" as the tower goes down. He's off by over three orders of magnitude (over 1,000 inches versus 1 inch) here!

Thus, we have yet another reason why Bazant's collapse analysis is simply crap-- perhaps even criminal crap.

Video Fakery, Timing the 2nd Hit and Blackouts

In terms of 2nd hit video fakery on 9/11, if we assume that CGI was used to add the plane image into live videos of the exploding South tower, by far the trickiest aspect of this operation was getting THE TIMING RIGHT IN A LIVE BROADCAST.

If you think about it, it seems almost impossible for the perps to be able to merge an image of a fast moving plane into a video of an exploding tower and get THE TIMING PERFECTLY RIGHT IN A LIVE BROADCAST. Think about how hard this would be, as they would have to know when the tower was due to go off, down to the split second, and then merge the video in real time for a live shot.

I think this is where the blackouts came in:

Particularly notice the top two shots, which were essentially "live". The one in the upper right was the ABC shot that was shown on CNN and Fox as well. Notice how the shot changes after the plane disappears behind the building. I think this was the cover for the timing issue. Probably the plane shot was put together earlier in time, then merged into the tower video without the explosion, and then this was inserted right AFTER they knew the tower was exploding, on a time delay. The blackout and camera change allowed them the chance to cut the video and then put in the shot of the exploding tower.

If you look at the Fox5 shot, a common theory is that the blackout that follows the plane hitting the tower is due to the unexpected "nose out", and part of the cover-up for that. But I suggest that the "nose-out" wasn't the main reason for the blackout, but rather the blackout allowed the shot to be cut to the real live video of the exploding tower.*

Why the Naudet shot had a cut-away between the plane and the exploding tower is not exactly clear, as this shot was only shown much later, not live, and could have been fixed timing-wise in post-production. So, the Naudet cut-away could have been a coincidence, or possibly laziness in getting the timing right. A third possibility is that the Naudet 2nd hit shot was pre-planned in some way to have this sequence.

*Note the nose-out was still CGI, but I am saying it may not have been a mistake. It may have been intended for the initial animations.

Giving Conspiracy Theorists a Bad Name

Jon Swift descends into the madness of right-wing bloggers' investigations into Obama.

However, I'm not saying all of these stories are complete nonsense. Two stories that I think are close to being real are the ones about Obama being born in Kenya and his birth certificate being forged, and the one about Obama being sexually abused as a child (likely by an intel agent). Of course none of these google-sleuths have enough understanding about deep politics and conspiracies to put the likely story together on Obama. So it all comes off as pure hate-driven inanity.

Of course, there ARE true examples of pure hate-driven inanity about Obama, such as here.

But as to the conspiracy theorizing-- here is the "definitive" article espousing the idea that Bill Ayers was really the writer of Obama's first book. There is not one piece of solid proof, but many semi-plausible connections. The article was not written by an anonymous blogger, but by Jack Cashill, published in a real online magazine, "American Thinker". What is striking is that this piece is missing any actual reporting! You'd think Cashill could try to contact Ayers or Obama's people or his publisher to get some comment. But no, it's all pure speculation, much like the lamest conspiracy theorizing you'd find on 9/11.

What gets me, and I think what distinguishes bona fide conspiracy theorists from these jokers, is the purely partisan nature of these investigations. It's very hard for me to take anyone seriously who thinks the Democrats are some sort of evil global communist/socialist conspiracy, who think the worst of the Clintons, but can't second-guess Bush's motives, who think that there was no 9/11 conspiracy and that Republicans are honest and well-intentioned people.

Obviously I have a liberal bias here, and if there was no such thing as deep politics or conspiracies, I would be content with conventional liberal politics. But there are conspiracies and deeper politics, and once you realize this, everything changes-- including partisan views.

The Idiots Who Rule America

Good piece from Chris Hedges:
We may elect representatives to Congress to end the war in Iraq, but the war goes on. We may plead with these representatives to halt Bush's illegal wiretapping but the telecommunications lobbyists make sure it remains in place. We may beg them not to pass the bailout but 850 billion taxpayer dollars are funneled upward to the elites on Wall Street. We may want single-payer, not-for-profit health care but it is not even discussed as a possibility in presidential debates. We, as individuals in this system, are irrelevant.

"I've talked to several Supreme Court justices, several times in several countries," Saul told me, "and I say, look, in your rulings, can you differentiate easily in cases between the social contract and the commercial contract, and to which the answer is, we can no longer differentiate. And that lies at the heart of the problem. You don't have the concept of the other, and of obligation of the individual leading to individualism. You can't have that if the whole legal system has slipped over the last, really, 50 years, increasingly, to a confusion between the social contract and the commercial contract. Because they are two completely different things. The social contract is about the public good, responsible individualism, imagining the other. The commercial contract is a commercial contract. They're not supposed to be confused. They don't actually fit together. The commercial contract only works properly when the social contract works in a democracy."

The working class, which has desperately borrowed money to stay afloat as real wages have dropped, now face years, maybe decades, of stagnant or declining incomes without access to new credit. The national treasury meanwhile is being drained on behalf of speculative commercial interests. The government-- the only institution citizens have that is big enough and powerful enough to protect their rights-- is becoming weaker, more anemic and less able to help the mass of Americans who are embarking on a period of deprivation and suffering unseen in this country since the 1930s. Consumption, the profligate engine of the U.S. economy, is withering. September retail sales across the U.S. fell 1.2 percent. The decline was almost double the 0.7 percent drop analysts expected from consumers, whose spending represents two-thirds of U.S. economic activity. There were 160,000 jobs lost last month and three-quarters of a million jobs lost this year. The reverberations of the economic meltdown are only beginning.

I do not think George W. Bush or Barack Obama or John McCain or Henry Paulson are fascists. Rather, they are part of a cabal of naive, mediocre and self-deluded capitalists who are steadily weakening political and economic structures to a point where our democracy will become so impotent that it can be blown aside, probably with broad popular support. The only question is how this will happen. Will there be a steady and slow decline as in the late Roman Empire when the Senate ended as a farce? Will we see a powerful right-wing backlash from those outside the mainstream political system, as we did in Yugoslavia, and the rise of a militant Christian fascism? Will there be a national crisis that allows those in power to instantly sweep away all constitutional rights in the name of national security?

My guess is the national crisis that will sweep away the rest of our consitutional rights.

Overt US Foreign Policy in a Nutshell

The US will wage preemptive war on countries if the US thinks that doing so is necessary to prevent these countries from developing a deterrent (i.e. nuclear weapons) against the US attacking these countries.

(Tip to GG.)

AP adds:
(Greenwald has a) kind of blog that appears to dig deep, in reality only looks just barely below the surface, as follows. Iran’s leadership, like America’s, is controlled by MI6 and Rome (with Langley often used as intermediary, and with obvious hangouts/patsies set up [like AIPAC]). Ahmadinejad, et al, are playing their parts according to their scripts. They may be trying to create nukes to raise tensions, have defense or for deeper purposes-- including all the deeper reasons for perennial War. Or they NOT actually be trying to acquire nukes-- only to make it look like they are-- for some of these same reasons. Taken in tandem with the North Korean hogwash, makes things clear. Bogus enemies making it look like they have, or are about to acquire nukes provides an excuse for great tension, possible War, “Homeland Security” apparatus and the full Gestapoization of the USA. The leaders of these other nations we go to war against, or make it look like we are about to, are really agents of MI6/CIA/Rome (like Saddam and others), and people need to know this. Likewise the people need to know the deepest reasons why the British American Regime creates these bogus enemies, and either lets them have nukes, or the appearance that they have or may soon acquire them. The level that Greenwald writes about, appearing to seem “deep” is in fact superficial; and not helpful toward terminating the chaos and evil we are in. He does indeed need to read and then promulgate the truth here -- and

A Brief, New Summary: WTC Destruction & High Temperature Aftermath: ONLY Nuclear Bombs and the China Syndrome Fit All the Evidence


by The Anonymous Physicist

In attempting to ascertain what caused the destruction of the WTC on 9/11/01, and the great heat and molten metal observed for up to six months afterward, one must account for ALL the phenomena involved in WTC destruction, and the aftermath-- and not just one or two factors. Only nuclear bombs and the resulting China Syndrome can account for ALL phenomena observed. The overview and numerous supporting articles on the nuclear destruction of the WTC are here: But, at the outset, we should realize that there is an abundance of evidence that the O.C.T. (Official Conspiracy Theory) is quite bogus. For example, sworn testimony from firemen/responders contains their witnessing of loud explosions from the onset of tower destruction. This alone destroys the OCT of gravity-driven, progressive collapse.

A brief summary of the nuclear aspects now follows.

1. First, low yield nukes (mini-nukes or micro-nukes) are a proven fact that the U.S Govt has admitted to since the 1950’s with their Davey Crocket rifle, and more recently with a physicist’s testimony to Congress. It is also documented fact that since the 1960’s, and Project Plowshare, low radiation nukes-- and later neutron bombs-- have been available, and were planned for excavation projects and such. My “many small nukes” WTC hypothesis indicates that numerous low yield nukes went off INSIDE (near the center of) the towers. They vaporized anything near them (via million degree temperatures and/or high neutron flux), but the yield of these micro-nukes was deliberately small enough not to vaporize the outer structure. This also ensured that any radiation was contained during detonation. And Plowshare, and neutron bombs, prove low radiation nukes have been available for decades.

2. MASSIVE EVIDENCE of ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSES (EMP) FROM NUKES. This includes the eyewitness, sworn testimony of EMT responder, Patricia Ondrovic (and others). She reported that as WTC1 was beginning to be destroyed, she saw flickering lights in WTC6 lobby where she tried to enter, but was stopped. And just outside at that time, cars caught fire without any visible reason, and one then had its car door explode off of it; and the door hit and injured her as she began to flee the area. Exactly how EMP from nukes did all this is explained here, along with other evidence of EMP during tower destruction from nuclear bombs.

3. DUST PARTICLE SIZE WAS LESS THAN 2.5 MICRONS-- & LIED ABOUT by the Gov’t’s main OCT (Official “Collapse” Theory) engineer/author. You can think of a mortar and pestle, and grinding something large into smaller and smaller pieces. It takes more and more energy input to yield smaller and smaller pieces. A nuclear bomb is known to yield particle sizes down to 10 nanometers. (1 nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter). And Govt scientists had equipment to analyze the WTC dust down to 10-nanometer size, if they wanted to, and should have. Unless they did, and have refused to release this. What they (the U.S. Geological Survey scientists) did was lump together all dust sizes less than 2.5 microns and released this data. (A micron is 1 millionth of a meter, and a thousand times larger than 1 nanometer). Nonetheless, the Govt’s main engineer/author, Z.P. Bazant, numerous times wrote papers that claimed that 10 microns was the smallest sized particles created during WTC destruction, and later collected by USGS scientists. For years he did not cite the work that showed, this. Last year he did cite a reference, and it led back to the 2.5 micron study, NOT to the 10 microns he claimed as the smallest dust particle size! So he flat out committed fraud here. He had to do this as his bogus papers claim that the gravitational potential energy (height times weight) of the towers accounted for the energy needed to create the smallest dust particle size. And there isn’t enough energy from his theory to account for 2.5 micron size dust, let alone the much smaller dust sizes that the USGS did not ascertain or release! The bogus physics and math from Bazant and others is here.

4. MELTED, HANGING SKIN WITHOUT FIRE was reported by at least 4 known WTC survivors. This includes WTC worker Felipe David, whose own words state this occurred without fire, but his story when told by another, has “fire” added. There are also two women who reported (on the “Larry King Show”) that a similar thing happened to them, and they don’t know why, because they too were not in any fire. And there is also a security guard with a similar report. The security guard and Felipe David had this happen to them in the lobby and the sub-basement area of WTC1 respectively. Outside the towers, firemen/responders also felt great heat on their skin without being near any fire DURING TOWER DESTRUCTION. Only the thermal rays of a nuclear bomb can account for this. They go out the farthest when a nuke goes off. And hanging skin was a common occurrence in Hiroshima survivors. Note that the outside firemen feeling heat on their skin (without fire near them) also disproves “DEW”, as they are NOT in the towers nor right under them either, and thus if “directed energy beams did it”, and these must be coherent, they would not diverge and cause heat far from their target! So no “DEW” was involved.

5. SUB-BASEMENT LEVEL, 50-TON STEEL PRESS & HEAVY DOOR VAPORIZED. At the same time as Felipe David’s nughtmare was unfolding, and also in the sub-basement, WTC engineer Mike Pecoraro reports going up a level and seeing that a sub-basement level was in shambles and was “just gone.” Also he states a 50-ton press has also been apparently vaporized, and a 300 pound steel/concrete door has just been left shriveled up like foil. The only things that could do this are the multi-million degree temperatures, and neutron bombardment, from a nuclear bomb. Coupling this with the four survivors who had melted, hanging skin at this same time, we have evidence of blast, high temperatures, neutron bombardment and thermal rays-- all virtual proof of nuclear bomb use.

6. HEAT GENERATION AT THE WTC FOR UP TO 6 MONTHS AFTER 9/11- -THE CHINA SYNDROME AFTERMATH (CSA) (see No heat “lingers” for weeks and months, not alleged jet fuel, not alleged thermite (which would have been used up either in minutes or hours--or during its use as an explosive). We have the documented, witnessed, and well photographed and videotaped great heat and molten metal for weeks, and indeed for up to six months underground at the WTC-- until all radioactive fission fragments were carted away. No heat lingers for that long; this could only have been heat GENERATION. The evidence of great heat throughout much of the rubble pile and even higher temperatures underneath the two towers and WTC7 is massive. It included melted firemen’s boots, even dogs had to wear special boots, a mass of congealed bullets in WTC6 going off weeks later from heat, and many photos of steam emanation from the continual water hosing of the “hotspots” all around the WTC. The China Syndrome HAD TO ARISE because each of the numerous small nukes used up only 1-6% of its fissile material-- which is standard for nukes. The remainder was then available as radioactive fragments, releasing great heat for a long time (until removed), as the half-life of Uranium 235 is 700 million years. And it is likely that there were numerous, redundant nukes employed, and the phenomena of "fratricided" and fizzled nukes may also have occurred as these are common with nuclear detonations. These effects likely further exacerbated the China Syndrome. The radioactive fragments were somewhat dispersed throughout the rubble pile, and in greatest concentration underneath the towers and WTC7-- where water and sand treatments could not readily be employed. Note that the alleged Tritium finding that the Govt released, may be a red herring to fool people to look for top-secret unknown types of nukes, which couldn’t have led to the CSA, which is what clearly occurred. The ludicrous lying (“there never was any heat during or after WTC destruction”) or the poor attempts to create new laws of chemistry and physics by alleged 9/11truthers (“super nanocomposite thermite burns forever”) only shows how desperate the Govt is to hide the China Syndrome Aftermath.

7. THE MISSING PEOPLE, FURNITURE, steel & other contents of the towers. Destruction of the towers vaporized many of the nearly 3,000 people who died, as well as much furniture, steel and other building contents. The medical examiner was unable to find or utilize any strands of DNA for over 1100 people. The rubble pile from the two towers was only a couple of stories high when it should have been several times higher from a “collapse,” or even a conventional demolition. There is much missing mass from the “extraordinarily high temperatures” as fire engineering Professor Barnett declared after examining vaporized steel, that occurred during tower/WTC7 destruction. Nukes vaporize matter near their hypocenter. Thermite, thermobarics, etc. DO NOT. Contrary to what some claim, neither thermite nor thermobarics could vaporize the missing people, furniture, steel and other contents, as detailed here.

8. CLASSICAL GOV’T DISINFO METHODS ENSUED whereby their agents put out supposedly “alternative theories” involving alleged “secret, new technologies” that are either evidence-free and/or impossible. Space Beams/DEW (Directed Energy Weapons), or ludicrous “super nanocomposite thermite burns forever” theories were created by the intel agencies to cover up the nuking of the WTC, and the China Syndrome Aftermath. (Thermite cools off in minutes or hours.) These “theories” desperately try to claim new phenomena or new laws of physics and chemistry--as does the 9/11 Commission’s ludicrous “findings.”

9. More now on the issue of Radiation: The #1 item above showed that the Govt has had mini-nukes, and micro-nukes for decades, and that low-radiation yielding nukes have also been around for decades as well. On the other hand, the great heat and molten metal at, and under, the WTC for up to six months after 9/11, indicates the existence of the China Syndrome Aftermath at the WTC; whereby many responders and Metro New York residents may have been exposed to some radiation from radioactive fission fragments that resulted from the use of the many micro-nukes. We have much indirect evidence of the effects of radiation poisoning among the 40,000 responders who were at “Ground Zero” in the weeks and months afterwards. There have been hundreds of reported cases of blood, lymph and thyroid cancers among responders. These types of cancers frequently arise from radiation exposure, and are much less likely (unlike lung diseases) to arise from inhalation of toxins. Also, the teeth and hair falling out reported by several responders are also standard illnesses from radiation poisoning. These responders’ doctors and lawyers are not telling these people that radiation may have caused their illnesses, because the China Syndrome Aftermath remains one of the Govt’s most closely guarded secrets. However, we can see that the Govt itself was well aware of what it had caused! Standard radiation-lowering methods were employed beginning the very next morning-- 9/12/01! These included water dilution/hosing down and sand/earth covering (and subsequent removal of this sand/earth) of the rubble pile. These procedures continued for weeks and months precisely because the rubble pile, and undergound areas, were replete with radioactive fission fragments.

There is some general information on radiation sources that needs elucidation. Due to absorption and other factors, radiation levels can go down quickly-- unless radioactive fragments (radionuclides) are released to the environment. Unless one is close (like Felipe David, who appears to have received thermal radiation, and not ionizing radiation)-- or the radiation is very intense-- enough distance/air or most materials, will stop most forms of radiation. This assumes one does not inhale or ingest radioactive particles or radionuclides. The underground WTC areas-- which likely had the highest radiation yields (and also heat)-- were off limits to all but a few responders. Also, as Hiroshima studies indicated, it took decades for many cancers and other illnesses to manifest. Note that a Gov’t agency, FEMA, was/is in charge of any radiation data for Ground Zero, and could easily have blocked release of any data that found radiation. The U.S. Gov’t has a long, sordid record of lying about radiation exposure to soldiers and citizens, as noted here when they nuked their own soldiers during “atomic tests”.

Honest people, not in DENIAL, must see the analogy to the Reichstag fire set by the German Nazis, in 1933, in Berlin. This was their seat of almost their entire federal gov’t. And this fire/destruction was used as an excuse to destroy their Constitution, and as an excuse for War on “terrorists,” and then all of Europe. There was one difference with the Nazis, however. They waited till the middle of the night, when there were no inhabitants in the Reichstag building! Of course, that German Gov’t did not admit they did it themselves, but that came out after they lost WWII. If U.S. Govt agencies have certain types of proof that they nuked the WTC, and thus its largest city; does any honest person think these Govt agencies would ever release this data--unless a new Gov’t came about? There is reason to believe that other crucial data such as WTC rubble pile temperature (AVIRIS, 2nd set), and WTC destruction seismic recordings were altered. This physicist hypothesizes that WTC responders AND nearby Metro New York residents and workers, that were exposed either the longest or to certain areas with the “hottest”spots face the risk of getting cancer and other immune disorders from radiation exposure in the years and decades to come. Sadly this will prove the China Syndrome Aftermath in the worst possible way. Private persons and institutions are urged to get and keep statistics on this, as the Gov’t will likely cover this up.

Sign of the Times: al-CIA-duh Endorses McCain

Certainly, if we use the idea that al Qaeda's whole 9/11 plan was to destroy the US by one major attack (9/11) and then luring the US into unwinnable wars in Asia that eventually sap the US financial system, his plan seems to be working magnificently with Bush-- and McCain would clearly continue in Bush's footsteps and is thus their candidate of choice.

While I'm sure some would like to play the super triple reverse psychology logic game that what this really means is that al Qaeda wants Obama in power, this line of thinking gets quickly rendered meaningless by the fact that 9/11 was an inside job and al Qaeda is a scam.

Overall, this story is simply another sign that the PTB are pulling for an Obama win, for whatever reason.

Political Questions of the Day

Wow, that Sarah Palin pick really worked out well, didn't it? My guess is we'll never see another female vice-president pick again.

How desperate do you have to be to try and smear Barack Obama for his limited association with Bill Ayers, someone who was a violent anti-Vietnam war protester but who is now currently is a Distinguished Professor of Education and a Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois, Chicago??? Perhaps the key question is-- if Ayers is a terrorist, why is he working for the University of Illinois, and why isn't he in Gitmo?

If McCain were president for the past eight years, what would he have done differently from Bush regarding the economy and Iraq?

Why does anyone listen to Bill Bennett or Rush Limbaugh (or any right-wing blowhard for that matter)? The major questions is WHY are these idiots even in high-profile media jobs?

September Clues, Epilogue

Starts out pretty well with the witnesses and their different descriptions, but progresses to weaker and weaker material. The bit about cutting charges making the wing gashes in WTC1 is not quite convincing. The bit about the LAX airport being evacuated is interesting, but never really fleshed out, and duh-- wouldn't it be hard for family members (if there were family members) to show up when the airport is being evacuated? This is too obvious of a flaw-- and then it just ends!

Bill Being Drafted for Congress to Re-Investigate WTC Destruction Mechanisms

From World Trade Center Demolition

A draft bill setting up an independent science and technology investigation into the destruction of World Trade Center buildings 1, 2, and 7 to mandate construction-code changes was presented Sept. 16-17 in Washington D.C. by three Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice for consideration to eight House members and the director and staff of the House Science and Technology committee.
(Note, if you can log into OpEdNews, it is much easier to see the piece as a single page via the print option.)

Sounds like a bunch of "thermite sniffers" doing this, even though there is mention of Wood's DEW theory and Deagle-'s mini-nuke theory.

But, I'm encouraged that this is even being looked into.

This is interesting, something that I hadn't heard of before: "Another Deagle theory involves the possible use of the Pentagon’s new weapons of “ultra-powerful magnetic pulses.” Lasers can generate nuclear explosions without requiring a nuclear fission/fusion as their trigger." Does the writer mean EMP lasers, or maser-type devices?

UPDATE: Comment from anonymous Physicist:
First, please realize that this whole thing is by Jones’ people. There are numerous errors in the piece from the "3 Scholars." They get Deagle's degree wrong-- he has an M.D. not a PhD. And after re-checking, it appears that they have either mis- or disinformation when they cite what he said about "paramagnetic fields". His Vancouver talk slide set shows photos of rays hitting fiery cars--when he gets into "paramagnetic fields." So I think Deagle simply meant to say Electromagentic Pulse (from nukes), but may have erred. And these people are putting words in his mouth as far as a tower destruction mechanism, which he didn't say, except for the EMP affecting the cars. They probably say this to make it look like he has a DEW mechanism. Bottom line, I do not believe he has proposed any such thing for WTC destruction-- only micro nukes, as he said for the OKC bombing. I have explained many times here exactly how EMP caused sections of cars to burn off paint and catch fire. Curiously these thermite supporters also seem happy to promote DEW, which tells you something. They admit to the great heat there and molten metal, but make sure never to mention the actual cause of this HEAT GENERATION-- the China Syndrome Aftermath (CSA)!

They ask for their own people (thermite) and DEW people to be on the Committee, but no nuke people-- even after saying this is one possibility. This appears to be nothing more than the regime's method of getting their assets to make it look like they are using the system-- in tandem with Wood's "lawsuit" which is cited even though it was thrown out of court "with prejudice!" In addition to hiding the CSA, I like the way they threw in the Mossad, when they mention the CIA. How about a word on how MI6 controls both the CIA and the Mossad? Again showing me what is really going on here. As with Pearl Harbor, and with the JFK Assassination, there likely will be further "official investigations" in the years to come. All with bogus "official findings and conclusions". Each will go one inch beyond the last one, but will end up in the same pile of horse manure. Unless and until the people do what the founding fathers of this country did.

Actual Fraud Relating to Voting

Not that ACORN bullshit:
The Los Angeles Times reported on Saturday that dozens of voters have complained they were duped by a firm working for the GOP into switching their party registration to Republican while being told they were signing a petition for tougher penalties on child molesters.

The switches could impede Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts and could prevent those affected from voting in next year's Democratic primaries. Some of the voters were even switched to absentee status, meaning they could lose their vote entirely if they show up at the polls on Election Day without bringing an absentee ballot.

The story began last summer, when California Democrats noticed sudden, unexplained turnarounds in Republican registration in certain counties and obtained a list of the new registrations from the San Bernardino County registrar's office. They found that more than 75% of the phone numbers given were invalid, and of those voters who could be reached, over 80% said their registrations had been switched to Republican without their knowledge.

A single group turned out to be behind the "slamming" -- Young Political Majors, which was previously found to be using similar tactics in Florida in 2004. In that election, YPM was employed by another firm called JSM Inc., which was working for conservative powerhouse Arno Political Associates. Similar stories involving all three have surfaced in Arizona, Massachusetts, and Ohio.

MSNBC's Contessa Brewer asked legal analyst Susan Filan on Monday about the case. "This is really serious," Filan responded. "This is a very specific, deliberate intent to mislead." She contrasted it with the far more trivial accusations of voter fraud against the anti-poverty group ACORN, which has handed in occasional fake registrations under names such as "Mickey Mouse."

I think a good rule of thumb is that anything that Republicans scream loudly about someone else doing is something they are most likely to be doing themselves-- and far worse.

Our Criminal Monster Regime in Action: the Abhorrent Treatment of Jose Padilla and Others

The torture techniques deployed against anyone George W. Bush unilaterally labeled an enemy combatant drove some of them insane:

A U.S. military officer warned Pentagon officials that an American detainee was being driven nearly insane by months of punishing isolation and sensory deprivation in a U.S. military brig, according to documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union and provided to The Associated Press...

They were deprived of natural light for months and for years were forbidden even minor distractions such as a soccer ball or a dictionary.

"I will continue to do what I can to help this individual maintain his sanity, but in my opinion we're working with borrowed time," an unidentified Navy brig official wrote of prisoner Yaser Esam Hamdi in 2002. "I would like to have some form of an incentive program in place to reward him for his continued good behavior, but more so, to keep him from whacking out on me."

This was not even in Gitmo. It was in a military brig in Norfolk, Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina, where the torture occurred on American soil and even against an American citizen, Jose Padilla. Many decent people in the armed forces resisted Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld, but they couldn't stop them:

An officer was still raising alarms about Hamdi's mental state after 14 months of jail with no contact with lawyers, his family or even other prisoners. "I told him the last thing that I wanted to have happen was to send him anywhere from here as a 'basket case,' of use to no one, to include himself," the officer wrote in an e-mail to undisclosed government officials in June 2003. "I fear the rubber band is nearing its breaking point here and not totally confident I can keep his head in the game much longer."

These people we made insane are the people we were trying to get intelligence from! You think insane people give us reliable information? Now recall the consequences of this torture with respect to Jose Padilla:

"During questioning, he often exhibits facial tics, unusual eye movements and contortions of his body," Mr. Patel said. "The contortions are particularly poignant since he is usually manacled and bound by a belly chain when he has meetings with counsel."...

Now recall what we found out about Qahtani:

At the end of months of sleep deprivation and other forms of torture, Qahtani, according to an FBI letter, "was evidencing behavior consistent with extreme psychological trauma (talking to non existent people, reporting hearing voices, crouching in a cell covered with a sheet for hours on end)."

The established legal definition of torture is the infliction of "severe mental or physical" "pain or suffering" to gain intelligence. If you do believe these individuals have been subjected to severe mental pain and suffering, then George W. Bush is a war criminal.

(Photo: an official photograph showing the lengths to which Padilla's guards went to maintain his total sensory deprivation. The goggles and earmuffs block out all sound and light, and he is manacled hand and foot, while being taken to have a tooth fixed. He is no security threat, but he is treated like an animal.)

Who really doubts the extent to which this monster regime would go to terrorize its own citizens?

The Pathetic GOP Smear Against Muslims

I'm glad to see Colin Powell confront this ugliness*:

I'm also troubled by, not what Sen. McCain says, but what members of the party say, and it is permitted to be said such things as: "Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim." Well, the correct answer is: he is not a Muslim. He's a Christian. He's always been a Christian.

But the really right answer is: What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is: No, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some 7-year-old Muslim-American kid believing he or she can be President?

Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion: he's a Muslim, and he might be associated with terrorists. This is not the way we should be doing it in America.

*In an appearance where he also endorsed Obama.

UPDATE: I should note that this bit of overall decency in no way absolves Powell for his lies in the run-up to the Iraq war. Chris Floyd lays out the case for Powell as a war-criminal here.

Has the Standard Operating Procedure for the China Syndrome Aftermath at the WTC been Completely Revealed?

by The Anonymous Physicist

Look closely at the left of this photo.

See that water is being sprayed-- from a spot fairly distant-- to the area near the large crane. And see that white steam is coming off the rubble, as a result of the hosing. (Note also that a great deal of debris has been cleared from around the core columns, meaning that this hot spot is still there several weeks into the clean-up process-- Spooked.)

Furthermore here is a photo apparently of a truck (near a large crane) being hosed down again from a large distance:

(from here.)

Note that the hosing truck says “water” not “molecular dissociating clouds.” Note also that no people are visible in this photo. Avoiding unnecessary radiation exposure? This further supports my China Syndrome Aftermath hypothesis, as follows. If the debris picked up by the crane, were just hot in the temperature sense, hosing it down IN PLACE after a while would have sufficed to cool it down, AND THAT WOULD BE THE END OF IT.

BUT if these were radioactive Uranium fragments with a half-life of 700 million years (from the left over fissile material of the nukes used [per my articles]), then these fragments indeed require further radiation-lowering treatment even when on the truck. Here is another photo whereby it seems that they automated the process of hosing down the contents of these trucks before they carried away rubble from the WTC:

(from here)

So I must ask:

Was this the S.O.P. [Standard Operating Procedure] for the China Syndrome Aftermath, at the WTC?

A. Spray a “hot” area with water,

B. Then look and listen to the steam and hissing to pinpoint the “hot spot(s)”,

C. Then use the crane to lift up the “hot” [both in temperature and radioactivity] fragments--like here:

D. Then, call the Mafia/intel truckers, and get the crane to emplace the debris in the truck.

E. Hose down the truck’s contents, as the “material” per force, is still hot-- and I do mean radioactivity, as well as temperature. Again if it were only a matter of temperature, they would not have risked damaging the trucks, and would have hosed/cooled the rubble before putting it in the trucks! But this is not possible for long half-life, radioactive fragments, so the trucks had to be hosed down AFTER emplacing the rubble! They perhaps then took repeated radiation readings until a desired level was reached, before truck departure.

F. Finally ship it to China?

And subsequently, follow all this up with intel agency created, ludicrous, evidence-free hangouts to variously claim that 1. There was no heat there, or 2. The ground is merely “fuming” from a ludicrous, new physical mechanism, and BTW ignore the water hosing down aspect-- “it’s just a coincidence” or 3. Yes the grounds were very hot, but it was because of a new physical mechanism-- “super nano-thermite burns forever.” And BTW, ignore the fact that thermite cools off in minutes. The Jones article explained exactly how nano-thermite burns forever--“Somehow.” See here.

Those three “mechanisms” are of course, the intel-created hangouts of O.C.T., DEW, and Thermite. All to hide the CSA--the China Syndrome Aftermath, of the nuking of the WTC. As detailed here and here. Please help the world, and post this crucial article on all possible web sites! It is not likely to be allowed on 911 [anti-]truth blogs or forums, because they are virtually all intel-run.

Summary of the Political Situation, and a Rant

Is there anything at all going well for the Right this year? The whole edifice appears to be crumbling faster than one can celebrate its demise. It's as though they're being simultaneously unmasked and punished for everything they've done over the last eight years. And they obviously realize that as they are now turning on each other with the same venomous accusations and demonization tactics that they've used to prop themselves up in power.

And that's to say nothing of the fact that the President they spent years creepily glorifying as a holy mix of Napolean, Ceasar and Ronald Reagan -- the Ultimate Standard-Bearer of their movement -- has become the most detested and failed President in modern American history. The undeniable reality -- as the endlessly wrong claims of their Kristols and Ruffinis show -- is that this is now a small and broken fringe whose worldview is not only anathema to, but in many cases repellent to, the mainstream, and the evidence for that is growing by the day.

* * * * *

Nonetheless, it's worth underscoring -- in fact, it's vital to keep in mind -- that the option of politically empowering Democrats is the opposite of a panacea. The Democratic Party structure in Washington, and particularly its leadership in Congress, is more corrupted and destructive than anything else there is -- with the exception of the right-wing faction that has been running the country for the last eight years. Contrary to the inane conventional Beltway wisdom that bipartisanship is oh-so-tragically scarce, Democrats as an entity have, over and over, passively acquiesced to, and frequently actively enabled and participated in, many of the worst abuses of the last eight years. Their leadership in Congress is corrupt and craven to the bone in many of the same ways the GOP leadership has been -- and they're about to be far more entrenched and their power far less checked.

Moreover, it's far from clear which version of Barack Obama will end up governing -- the cautious and principle-free centrist who sought out Joe Lieberman's mentorship and then endorsed him over an anti-war Democratic insurgent; the high-minded and establishment-challenging change agent of the Democratic primary; or the bland establishment figure of the general election seeking to minimize, even erase, every difference he has with Republicans. I doubt he even knows, but there are some possibilities that are quite bad (though, if he wins, he's certainly entitled to actually do things before being assessed one way or the other).

Earlier this week, Balloon-Juice's Tim wrote a thought-provoking post arguing that the online forces which have opposed the radicalism of the Bush administration will be weakened severely if Democrats win as resoundingly as it appears they will, because "defending all three branches of government is a much less fun job than attacking it." But I would hope (and actually, in general, believe) that the forces that have spent eight years opposing Bush radicalism aren't going to "defend" -- but rather oppose with equal vigor -- the Democratic establishment when it does many of the same things, as it will.

For the last several years, I've believed and have frequently written that the only worthwhile strategy is a two-pronged one:

I honestly don't know of any "progressive bloggers" who blindly support Democrats. I think the strategy of the blogosphere has always been two-pronged -- (1) remove the hideous right-wing beast from power and (2) change the Democratic Party in order to make step (1) worth doing. Those are EQUALLY IMPORTANT goals.

Step (1) is merely a pre-requisite (an absolute one) to achieving anything worthwhile. But without step (2), step (1) is mostly (though not entirely) worthless, because the Democratic Party as currently constituted at its core is a wretched and status-quo-perpetuating institution. If those who spent the last eight years vigorously opposing the radicalism, militarism, and anti-constitutional abuses of the Bush administration fail to oppose the Democratic leadership with equal fervor when they violate the same principles -- as they inevitably will -- then the humiliation of the Right and its removal from power will be emotionally satisfying, perfectly just, and a very mild improvement, but will ensure the continuation rather than the termination of most of the worst abuses of this government.

It's certainly true that there are more good national Democratic office-holders than Republicans -- it's not even close (anyone doubting that should just review the vote totals on the key votes during the Bush era). But within the Democratic Party, the good members are vastly outnumbered by the bad. The (understandable) euphoria over the anticipated obliteration of the extremist right-wing movement that has dominated our politics for years (which I share) shouldn't obscure the fact that the alternative -- the national Democratic Party -- shares many of the same sicknesses and is burdened by whole new ones as well, and itself will need far more opposing and changing than supporting and affirming.



In any case, it's pretty obvious that McCain's time has gone-- and Obama is the man whose time is now:

The Assassination of MLK Jr as a Covert Operation

I've been reading the William Pepper book “Orders to Kill: The Truth Behind the Murder of Martin Luther King”-- summarized here.

What strikes me is how incredibly complicated the whole operation was!

You might think if the regime wanted to kill someone, they would just hire a professional hitman to shoot the person at some favorable location for a killing, and that would be it. The gunman would get away, and no one would ever find him.

But no!

For MLK Jr, it was an amazing assembly of many different intertwined operations, involving multiple federal government agencies (FBI, NSA, CIA, Army), local law enforcement (Memphis police), non-government groups (Mafia) and apparently private citizens as well. There were easily dozens of people involved -- just to kill this one guy!

There was of course, the patsy: James Earl Ray.

But there was also the set-up-- getting MLK Jr to the right place, getting his normal police protection away from him, getting certain police and fire units out of the way, getting the killer and accomplices into place, setting up a decoy chase to lure the police the wrong way, setting-up and framing Ray (which was a very extensive operation), and altering the crime scene to mislead people about where the shots came from, etc.

All in all, it is simply amazing how complex the job was-- by choice, by the regime!

If you think about 9/11, about how complicated of a covert operation it seemed to be-- this all fits with what we know about the killing of MLK Jr. 9/11 was a much grander operation, and obviously needed to be more complex. Well, we have clear precedent of how fiendishly detailed these jobs can be -- and how they can be done without anyone breaking silence for years.

The Logic and Unlikeliness of “FBI Agent Tony’s” Alleged Comment’s on TV Fakery on An Alleged Phone Call

by The Anonymous Physicist

The alleged comments recently purported to be made on a telephone call to the FBI’s New York Headquarters by a Canadian 911 truther needs careful and logical analysis. The phone call allegedly has an FBI agent say his name is Tony, and that the FBI is “looking into” TV fakery on 9/11. But the whole phone call sounds patently absurd. I have had some personal experience in such matters, and also communications with the FBI are a matter of public record. Note that I am not disputing the issue of TV fakery, as the videos clearly show the alleged plane of the second hit has a wing that blinks in and out of existence, and is thus clearly only a CGI image. I have also written that the second “plane hit” is devoid of the laws of physics, including my own analysis written that a shock wave would have traveled down the plane at the speed of sound in aluminum (11,000 mph), and would have collapsed or deformed the rear of the plane almost instantaneously (with the contact of the front and WTC2) which, of course, is not on the CGI videos. Nonetheless this phone call appears to be improbable, as follows.

Some of the absurdities include the following. The FBI would have first insisted on getting all the information from the caller (as the caller himself could always be a “terrorist,” and as SOP [Standard Operating Procedure.] The caller would have been forced to first provide his full name, address, phone number and social security number, or Canadian equivalent. Without getting all this, the FBI would have likely hung up on him, or have gotten his number for a call back. It is highly unlikely that an agent would speak to any unidentified person. Also, on the phone, an FBI agent likely would not have given any information on himself. But if he did, he would likely have said “Special Agent” Smith, or such, not “Tony.” And it is extremely unlikely that he would have volunteered anything about the FBI’s 9/11 investigation to an unknown, Canadian person, that wasn’t already public knowledge. The FBI would have likely detected that the caller was from Canada from their electronic equipment. It is also highly unlikely that an FBI agent would have let the caller be in control of the conversation and scream at him, “Come on Man”, etc. Rather the FBI agent, if he took the call at all, would have gotten the caller to talk about himself as much as possible--especially since the caller said his call was about “terrorism”, and would not have given his own opinions or details of the FBI’s non-public investigations, or anything “new” to someone unidentified. And the FBI would have made this a very short call, as there was nothing here for them-- in all likelihood it would have been regarded as a crank call. Curiously here even the FBI now has an agent that acts just as the caller’s other “callees” have acted in the past. I.e., they all seem to threaten to hang up, but never do! A whole lot of coincidence, if you catch my drift.

It is fascinating how the alleged call contains-- in a way-- an air of legitimacy, when the first attempted call is hung up on by the FBI-- AFTER the caller said it was about terrorism. In other words, the showing of great bureaucratic ineptitude by the FBI cleverly appears to lend an air of legitimacy to this matter. As improbable or absurd as the whole alleged call appears to be, I can think of one possible scenario whereby the call could be real. And that would entail the FBI and the caller conspiring together to promote this. I am not saying I am certain that this is the case, although I think the probability may be greater than the probability that this call really took place between the caller and “Special Agent Tony” of the FBI. Of course, if this matter is not legitimate, it would be classified as “Audio Fakery.”

The bottom line, is that the extreme unlikeliness of this call demands that others attempt to duplicate it. It is also curious that with all the “911 truthers” out there, no one has either tried or succeeded in this-- again lending an air of unbelievability to it.

Monday, the 13th of October: Paul Krugman Day!

Paul Krugman wins Nobel prize for Economics*. That's pretty cool, as I was a big fan of his back when he started writing for the Times in 1999. I even exchanged a couple of emails with him. I have read a couple of his books, which were fairly captivating reading, all the more remarkable considering economics is not close to my field. Back in 2005 or so I pushed him in an email to look into 9/11, talking about the hijacking drills, but he never got beyond writing in one column about how we need to know what really happened that day (9/11). I was always amazed how Krugman wrote a column three days after 9/11, when everyone was still shocked from the death and destruction, and he put the whole thing in reasonable perspective, saying the losses in office space for the WTC were relatively small for the US. He clearly had no idea what the Bush administration would do with 9/11-- although he did suspect there would be some partisan games being played.

Also today-- the stock market goes up 11% (900 for the Dow) on news that the Bush administration might change their response to the financial trouble-- moving to a strategy that was pushed by the Europeans and that Krugman had been a advocate for-- injecting capital in return for part-ownership (equity injections) into banks.

Aaron Brown: In New York, Allan Dodds Frank joins us on the phone, in lower Manhattan. Allan

Allan Dodds Frank: Aaron, just a ... two or three minutes ago there was yet another collapse or explosion — I am now out of sight. A good Samaritan has taken me in on Duane Street — at a quarter to eleven there was another collapse or explosion following the 10:30 collapse of the second tower, and a firefighter rushed by us estimated that 50 stories went down. Um, the street filled with smoke, it was like a fire ... a, like a forest fire roaring down a canyon. Now as I think Patty has said, and others told you, all of Manhattan — all of downtown Manhattan — is covered with thick white ash and building material. The ambulances have been coming now from as far as Long Island. All the rescue workers are being equipped with gas, or face-filter masks, and firefighters have been arriving even by pickup truck. Otherwise the streets now are deserted.

Aaron Brown: Allan, thank you. Allan Dodds Frank.

Steven Warran thinks this is a premature call of WTC7 going down.

That's possible, but I also wonder if this was the demolition of a lower section of WTC1 (or WTC2)-- that occurred at a later point than the initial demolition. It would actually make sense if more demolition was done after the upper section went down, as stronger bombs could be used to take out the stronger lower section and they would be obscured by the smoke and the general shock of the initial event.

UPDATE 2: By pure coincidence, I see a blog I just found, Shoestring911, actually back last April posted the same thing as Stevenwarran did, with similar conclusions.

Grading the New September Clues

From here.

Part A-- solid, good work. An "A".

Part B-- many suspect, or poorly documented, conclusions-- needs to work on analysis of perspective, visibility of wings at certain angles. Mike Walter interview a semi-waste of time, flight 93 analysis almost worthless. A "C-".

Part C-- again, many suspect conclusions-- needs to work on analysis of shadows, video anomalies, perspective, sound versus location, but some decent work as well. A "C".

Part D-- good compilation and an interesting finding, but too much time spent overall on this, IMO. A "B".

Part E-- the timing thing is interesting, but too much time spent on something not completely convincing; the color issue is good. A "B".

Part F-- pretty good on the background of the different videographers, not convinced that the Hlava shot is a simple edit of the Hezarkhani shot. A "B".

Part G-- a mish-mash of stuff, mostly decent. A "B".

Part H-- Simon really gets iffy when dealing with perspective-- just not convincing. The last minute is good, but the first 9 minutes-- diffuse, a waste of time. A "D".

Overall, many good points made this series, but far too many glib suspect conclusions that cast doubt on the "good stuff". The good stuff could easily be condensed into something taking half the time-- and should be!
