Prominent Americans Questioning the Official U.S. Government Explanation of 9/11
The following CIA, FBI, Army, Navy, and Air Force personnel (current and retired) are among the 220 scrupulous, highly credentialed and professional patriots from Senior Military, Intelligence Service, Law Enforcement and Government Officials who have signed on to the global call for a first investigation into the 9/11/2001 attack. It is posted at PatriotsQuestion911.
This call is based on the following evidence-based observations:
- The jet fires were out when buildings WTC 1 & 2 fell–the only buildings of their type in known history to ostensibly collapse from fire.
- There wasn’t enough energy in the jet fuel to cause the collapse.
- WTC Buildings 1 & 2 fell in the manner of an internally demolished structure.
- Nano-thermite was found in WTC 1 & 2 dust–the compound used to internally demolish buildings.
- WTC steel was photographed with clean-sliced diagonal cuts–identical to those found in internally demolished buildings.
- WTC debris was immediately secured and shipped to China for reprocessing before it could be forensically investigated as necessary for any crime scene.
- WTC Building 7 was also destroyed–and in the manner of an internal demolition, yet never damaged by jet, building debris or fire.
- Explosions in all the buildings were experienced and heard by witnesses far from where the jet fuel was not present and long before the upper building destruction had any impact at the explosion locations.
The following personnel are in the Patriots list demanding a new 9/11 investigation. They are clear about three issues:
- The official government explanation for what happened on 9/11/2001 has too many contradictions and unanswered questions to be adequate one;
- We do not know who did the 9/11/2001 attack, how or why, and need a first and genuine investigation, and
- This investigation must occur before concluding that the “War on Terror” is an appropriate response to the attacks. Here are just some of the many scrupulous and highly credentialed personnel supporting this call:
