Jim Fetzer Update - 9/11: The Who, the How and the Why

"(All) the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S"--Saudi Arabian Press

Saudi Arabia has blown the whistle on the US over 9/11
It was only a matter of time. Once the infamous 28 suppressed pages of The 9/11 Commission Report (2004), which report on Saudi Arabian funding for several of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers--15 of whom were from Saudi Arabia, none of which were from Iraq--became the focus of public attention in the mass media and a bill had been introduced to allow US citizens to sue Saudi Arabia for its complicity in the atrocities of 9/11, it was only a matter of time before Saudi Arabia struck back by revealing that, on 9/11, the US had attacked the US in order to provide the pretext for perpetual war in the Middle East.

The plan for 9/11 appears to have originated in the fertile imagination of Benjamin Netanyahu, who was seeking a means for manipulating the United States into attacking the modern Arab states that served as a counter-balance to Israel's domination of the Middle East, which would pave the way for its eventual expansion to become "the Greater Israel" of historic Zionist aspirations that would extend from the Tigris-Euphrates to the Nile. He had already organized a conference held in Jerusalem on which Terrorism: How the West can Win (1987), long before the concept of terrorism had begun to exert its influence up the American mind.  Netanyahu has displayed political genius in bending America to do the dirty work for Israel.

Bibi at the top of his game
9/11 was brought to us compliments of the CIA, the Neocons in the Department of Defense (most of whom had come from the Project for a New American Century and were dual US-Israeli citizens) and the Mossad, with funding, it turns out, from Saudi Arabia. It should have struck a nerve in the US when a half-dozen or more of the alleged "hijackers" turned up alive and well the following day, making contact with the media in the UK, which David Ray Griffin, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions (2011), makes the first point in his classic demonstration of the deceit and deception of the 9/11 Commission by suppressing and misrepresenting key aspects of the atrocities of that day.

What this means is that the WHO and the WHY are easier to establish than the HOW, where the HOW becomes enormously important as proof about the WHO and the WHY. There are three major 9/11 research groups active today, including Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which has long championed the use of nanothemite in the destruction of the Twin Towers) and the Judy Wood DEW group (which focuses on the use of directed energy weapons as the means that was deployed to attack the World Trade Center). Remarkably, neither A&E911 nor the DEW group has been willing to address the WHO and the WHY--where even their explanations of the HOW appear to suffer from serious inadequacies. Only those associated with Scholars for 9/11 Truth--and, in the past, with addressed all three with success.

The importance of "the HOW"

The question of HOW it was done has to be the foundation for any serious investigation of the WHO and the WHY for the obvious reason: If the WTC was attacked by 19 Islamic terrorists who hijacked four commercial carriers and brought about the atrocities of 9/11 under the control of a guy in a cave in Afghanistan, as we have been told, then the case is closed! It is because the "official narrative" of 9/11 cannot be sustained that serious students have been driven to search for more adequate accounts of 9/11, which are consistent with the available relevant evidence and do not violate laws of physics, of engineering and of aerodynamics. Indeed, these violations are among the most blatant refutations of The 9/11 Commission Report (2004), because they prove that it cannot possibly be true.

The 47 massive core columns vs the external support columns
The Twin Towers incorporated an innovative "tube within a tube" design, with 47 massive core columns at the center, which were connected to the external steel support columns by steel trusses, which were filled with 4-8" of concrete (where the variance reflects that the trusses had v-shaped groves that were 4" deep, so in some places, the concrete was 4" thick but in others 8" instead. The buildings were among the most robust in the history of architecture, exceeded perhaps only by WTC-7, the infamous "Building 7", which would undergo a bona fide collapse at 5:20 PM/ET, 7 hours after the Twin Towers were demolished, even though it was hit by no plane and endured no jet fuel fires.

In "20 Reasons the 'Official Account' of 9/11 is Wrong" (, 10 September 2000), I explained some of the most basic reasons we know that what we have been told is not only false but provably false and, in crucial respects, not even scientifically possible. The impact of the planes, for example, cannot have caused enough damage to bring the buildings down, since the buildings were designed to withstand even multiple impacts by aircraft (as Frank DeMartini, the project manager, has observed), the planes alleged to have hit were similar to those they were designed to withstand, and the buildings continued to stand after those impacts with negligible effects.

Most of the jet fuel, principally kerosene, burned up in those fireballs in the first fifteen seconds or so. Below the 96th floor in the North Tower and the 80th in the South, those buildings were stone cold steel (unaffected by any fires at all other than some very modest office fires that burned around 500 degrees F), which functioned as massive heat sinks dissipating the heat from building up at specific locations of the steel. The melting point of steel at 2,800 degrees F, moreover, is about 1,000 degrees higher than the maximum burning temperature of jet-fuel-based fires, which do not exceed 1,800 degrees F under optimal conditions; but the NIST examined 236 samples of steel and found that 233 had not been exposed to temperatures above 500 degrees F and the others not above 1200.

Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., had certified the steel in the buildings up to 2,000 degrees F for three or four hours without any significant effects, where these fires burned neither long enough or hot enough at an average temperature of about 500 degrees for about one hour in the South Tower and one and a half in the North Tower to weaken, much less melt, any steel. And if the steel had melted or weakened, then the affected floors would have displayed completely different behavior, with some degree of asymmetrical sagging and tilting, which would have been gradual and slow, not the complete, abrupt and total demolition that was observed. Which means the NIST cannot even explain the initiation of any ”collapse” sequence. And their collapse was not even physically possible.

The Destruction of the Twin Towers

The thickness of the steel from subbasements to top floors 
The top 30 floors of the South Tower pivoted and fell to the side, turning to dust before it reached the horizontal. So it did not even exist to exert any downward pressure on the lower 80 floors. A retired high-school physics, chemistry and math teacher, Charles Boldwyn, has calculated that, if you take the top 14 floors of the North Tower as one unit of downward force, there were 199 units of upward force to counteract it. Moreover, the relative thickness of the steel used in the core columns diminishes from 6" thick in the subbasements to 1/4" inch at the top, where the top 14 floors of the North Tower, for example, represented only 1.4% of the mass of the steel, where it is absurd to suppose that 1.4% of the mass of the steel could have caused the collapse of the lower 98.6%. 

William Rodriguez, who was the senior custodian in the North Tower and the last man to leave the building, has reported massive explosions in the subbasements that effected extensive destruction, including the demolition of an hydraulic press and the ripping of the skin off a fellow worker, where they filled with water that drained the sprinkler system. Rodriguez has observed that the North Tower explosion occurred prior to reverberations from upper floors, a claim that has now been substantiated in a research by Craig Furlong and Gordon Ross, ”Seismic Proof: 9/11 Was an Inside Job”, in which they demonstrate that those explosions--both in the North Tower and also in the South--took place as much as 14 and 17 seconds before the presumptive airplane impacts, a point to which I shall return.
Heavy-steel-construction buildings, such as the Twin Towers, are not generally capable of “pancake collapse,” which normally occurs only with concrete structures of “lift slab” construction and could not occur in redundant welded-steel buildings, such as the towers, unless every supporting column had been simultaneously removed, floor by floor, as Charles N. Pegelow, who is a structural engineer, has observed. The demolition of the two towers in about 10 seconds apiece is very close to the speed of free fall with only air resistance, which Judy Wood, Ph.D., formerly a professor of mechanical engineering, has observed is an astounding result that would be impossible with extremely powerful sources of energy. If they were collapsing, they would have had to fall through their points of greatest resistance.
