New Aerial Photos Of 9/11 World Trade Center Collapse

These images were first released in 2010 after a FOIA request.


Daily Mail - Several more pictures (much larger size) are HERE

After 9/11 the U.S.'s National Institute of Standards and Technology collected images from amateur, professional and freelance photographers as part of its investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Centre.  It completed its research in 2005.

In the summer of last year, ABC asked NIST to release the images and filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act for access to them.

The images seen here are ones taken by NYPD helicopters and come from the 2,779 pictures supplied on nine CDs to the news organisation.

The white clouds that were emitted from the towers as soon as they started to fall are composed mostly of concrete that has been so thoroughly pulverized that it has been turned into dust. The energy needed to do that could only have been created by explosives.

Really believable images of the collapse. It is like watching a person collapse in his footprints because a fly hit him in the face. You know, its like his skeleton melted to his footprints at nearly free fall speed and left his ears where his head stood. Lovely logic and speaks a million. Very believable indeed. Lol.

The tower were brought down with a super advanced direct energy weapon.

Chain of custody dust samples were analized by scientists that found military grade nano-thermite in all the samples. Direct energy weapon? I don't think you have all the facts. The towers were imploded along with building 7 using nano-thermite and placed by explosives experts from CIA and MOSSAD.

You see that building in the upper right of photo 1 and in the upper left of photo 3? That's Building 7 of the WTC, the one shaped (looking down from the top, into the z-axis) like a triangle truncated fairly close to the base.

Even though it looks fine in these photos, it wasn't. It collapsed into dust a few hours later, even though it wasn't hit by any plane and indeed was separated by Vesey Street from WTC 1&2. (Photos 1 and 3 are facing SW.)

BBC was prescient enough to report the collapse of WTC 7 before it happened.

Anchor: "You might have heard a few moments ago us talking about the Salomon Brothers Building collapsing, and INDEED IT HAS."

CUT to reporter Jane Stanley, over whose left shoulder appears the proudly erect... Salomon Bros. Building, aka Building 7.

The cloud of white smoke and the perfectly vertical collapse are obvious signs of controlled demolition. Whoever thinks fires caused these two very well engineered structures to fail is either brainwashed, and idiot or part of the group responsible for the murderous plot.
If you still think fire can collapse a building at near free fall speed straight into its footprint check this out.

Controlled demolition strategies have been changed ever since the 9/11 incicent where it was disconvered that upper floor kerosine fires were a cheaper, easier, and more efficient means for bringing down the entire structures of concrete and steel archetecture. Unfortunately the Bin Laden Construction company of Saudi Arabia has the patent for this method.

Although the events leading up to 9/11 are a little strange, I don't agree with the theories that state the towers and Building 7 were brought down by explosives.

I know it makes 9/11 seem even more bizarre when you put in the explosive variable - But I wonder how many people here really understand physics and architecture enough to state the things they do. It has echoes of the people that parrot 'Global Warming is a lie', and parrot some crank out of 100 climatologists that say the opposite. Cherry-picking data and photos is not scientific reasoning, it's just a belief system.

I highly recommend that people watch "WAR BY DECEPTION" (Director's Cut)

And no, the towers were not brought down by superweapons, rayguns, or that other "poison-well" rubbish deliberately put out there by government crooks to confuse people - just mundane technology, controlled demolitions with previously planted explosives and thermite cutting charges. The Twin Towers were "topdown" demolitions.

There were audible explosions before the collapses

These aren't heard well on the TV versions because they're filtered to allow reporters and people be heard more clearly when interviewing.

In point of fact, the collapses didn't start at the aircraft impact points either, which is why the repeated video-clips shown on TV never show the actual start of the collapses. The North Tower's collapse started ABOVE the impact point. The South Tower's collapse started BELOW the impact point. By more than a dozen floors.

There were explosions in the basements also BEFORE each impact. As many witnesses have stated.

Also shows up in the ground vibration BEFORE the plane impact
There powerdowns that cut the power to parts of the buildings and mysterious workmen supposedly installing new "internet cabling" (which does NOT require powerdowns to install). This work was later discovered after an FOIA request to be "unregistered". It wasn't just "1 guy" who reported this either - the govt shills are lying.

This is a nuclear explosion, pure and simple. We can fight and argue about that as we will, but there were definitely nukes in the basement of the Twins. There was also thermate or thermite, but the twins were destroyed ultimately by a nuclear explosion, What else could it have been? Stop the argument and start the prosecutions! It is over, way over, and the UN, The ICC, The Hague and the US Government are ALL GUILTY! This is nothing if not a complete ruse. Everyone knows it by now, and they are simply challenging all of the people of earth to challenge THEM. It is the game and the game is on. All they know is force, and force is all they know. However, force can NOT be the tool of the revolution. The ONLY useful tool of the Revolution is the truth. It is being spread as I write. They are the purveyors OF SO MANY LIES, for SO LONG, that this awakening is going to happen regardless. There are millions of us and only hundreds of them. They will be toast, and they know it. This is their last ditch effort to contain the lies that they have used for centuries to control us. The TRUTH is that we are ALL THE SAME. The TRUTH is that no one really want to KILL another human being. The TRUTH is that we ALL love our families and want the best for them, regardless of our religions, social status or economic situations. THEY CANNOT STAND THAT KNOWLEDGE GETTING OUT! TRUTH IS that Hitler's Germany was doing better than any country on the planet in 1941 because they'd discovered how to survive without USURY! They were the most prosperous country on Earth, so they HAD TO BE DESTROYED. USURY rules! Same with dozens of other countries, but most lately, Iraq. They were the most prosperous country and doing quite lovely in spite of the "sanctions" blah blah blah, and in fact, were doing SO WELL that their MODEL HAD TO BE DESTROYED before other countries realized it. Shock and fucking Awe! I am so ashamed.

Then Afghanistan, and now Libya. The most prosperous and democratic nations will BE the first to go. Bad Examples!!!! I am sure that they are chomping at the bit to rid Hugo Chavez of his popularity and his oil reserves. He is clever. I hate what my country is, I hate what my country does. I hate and despise killing other human beings to advance the resources of this country, and THAT is precisely WHAT the USA is and HAS ALWAYS BEEN all about. Sorry, sheeple. Some of you don't even care, most, very possibly. I do. And I am fucking MAD AS HELL about all the lies. My country is EVIL! In fact, it is the MOST EVIL country EVER. WE ARE THE TERRORISTS! Always! WE MAKE ALL OF THEM AND ALWAYS HAVE! THERE ARE NO SUICIDE BOMBERS THAT ARE NOT FROM CIA INTERROGATION CAMPS! THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL INSURANCE FEDERAL RESERVE COMPLEX is at the ROOT of ALL OF IT!!!!!!!!!! PROBLEM< REACTION< SOLUTION!\

Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah…Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes…And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defense system the slip…Unphased by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely…Our masterminds even manage to overpower the odd law of physics or two… and the world watches in awe as steel-framed buildings fall symmetrically – through their own mass – at free-fall speed, for the first time in history. Despite all their dastardly cunning, they stupidly give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the fireball undamaged and fall to the ground… only to be discovered by the incredible crime-fighting sleuths at the FBI Meanwhile down in Washington…Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked 2-man Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a Boeing…Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little…Executing an incredible 270 degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the world’s most heavily defended building……all without a single shot being fired…. or ruining the nicely mowed lawn… and all at a speed just too fast to capture on video……Later, in the skies above Pennsylvania…So desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that otherwise would not be possible until several years later…And following a heroic attempt by some to retake control of Flight 93, it crashes into a Shankesville field leaving no trace of engines, fuselage or occupants… except for the standard issue Muslim terrorists bandana……Further south in Florida…President Bush, our brave Commander-in-Chief continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class full of primary school children… shrugging off the obvious possibility that his life could be in imminent danger…In New York…Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously…While back in Washington, **** Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz shake their heads in disbelief at their own luck in getting the ‘New Pearl Harbor’ catalyzing event they so desired to pursue their agenda of world domination…And finally, not to be disturbed too much by reports of their own deaths, at least seven of our nineteen suicide hijackers turn up alive and kicking in lamestream media reports and if you don't believe this, you are a conspiracy theorist.

They can kill. They can murder. They can commit genocide. They can destroy cultures. They can withhold access. They can commit fraud. They can steal. They can gloat. Because no one can stop them, and no one dare to.

It is what it is. They are the masters and we are nothing but a bunch of pussies. Eleven years long now and nothing has happened to renew the interpretation of the official story. People remain civilized and submissive. The victims and families were paid off handsomely to keep quiet. All evidence was destroyed...at least the type of evidence you need to PROVE a case, and CONVICT.

But we can still talk about it every anniversary. But that's all we can do. Face it....its over. They won and there isn't squat you can do about it...or is there?

Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, on the topic du jour:

"In order to understand the improbability of the government’s explanation of 9/11, it is not necessary to know anything about what force or forces brought down the three World Trade Center buildings, what hit the Pentagon or caused the explosion, the flying skills or lack thereof of the alleged hijackers, whether the airliner crashed in Pennsylvania or was shot down, whether cell phone calls made at the altitudes could be received, or any other debated aspect of the controversy.

"You only have to know two things..."


Generally speeking, Roberts is at his best exposing the contradictions in the security state, e.g., on the profusion of underwear, shoe, etc. bombers:

"[T]hese were orchestrated events designed to keep fear alive, to create new intrusive powers for a new over-arching federal policy agency, to accustom US citizens to intrusive searches and a police force to conducting them, and to sell expensive porno-scanners and now more advanced devices to the Transportation Safety Administration. Apparently, this expensive collection of high-tech gadgetry is insufficient to protect us from terrorists, and in August 2012 the Department of Homeland Security put in an order for 750 million rounds of ammunition, enough to shoot every person in the US 2.5 times."

Amust read--last week, a brave once CIA agent after 10 years has written a book on what she knew prior to 911. She spent 5 years in prison. A wonderful lady--was interviewed for an hour. The video was posted at WRH. Sorry I forgot her name--but a true American. What she said--Weeks before the 911 attacks,her supervisor warned her not to get envolved with the WTC towers--they are in the process of being wired up for the datenation of many Thermal Nuclear bombs. Her phones were bugged and once she attempted to reveal this in public--she was arrested and handcuffed. Must hear her. SAd no media is picking it up :^(

What I write here is not theory. The dust is from nuked, denatured, pulverized, epoxied cement and sublimated steel and aluminum rendered sublimated by thermite sprayed on the steel top to bottom and just before 9-11-2001, nanothermate applied to cut the cores and trigger the original preset. Watch the videos closely and seek out my comments from the past years about this. My father and two or three other men went to NYC half a dozen times and worked in Seattle to get the bid for Skilling Engineering. Dad quit after he told me to document this new development and I did as ordered from a thermite application video filmed at the WTCs, The Seattle Times, Seattle PI newspaper. The New York Times, Construction Quarterly(I think) , and a cement/concrete specialty journal.
The most important is the nanothermate material testified to by Harrit and Jeff Prager and others. Also, the loading of WTC 6 just before 9-11-2001 at 8AM. Please seek out my comments for the best available descriptions of where to go for demolition analysis. The best overview of this murder of 3,000 plus the resultant murders called war may be found at Veterans Today. The meeting where Skilling and Associates and my father parted company shortly thereafter was at the table I grew up eating my meals on. I have been shooting my mouth off for years about this stuff and feel like a leper. MY DADDY BAILED OUT IN 1969 and told me to tell the world about it but "Don't get daddy fired" from his employer over the previous 20 years, Howard S. Wright, who had the computer used by Skilling and Associates to build the WTCs I and II. They call them pocket calculators today. Questions? Fire back. apeman2502@hotmail.com. Especially if you helped build these things and want to help, or call me a liar. I have $5,000.00 that says I am not. Any body want a chance at some easy money? Maybe take the wife on a trip to Hawaii? You will put up $2,500.00 that I WILL take from you after passing the polygraph. I have been having shit thrown in my face since 1969, before Woodstock, over this. nobody believed it then, either. Payback time! Let's clean house. I am in danger from the people you think i would be in danger from. ALL parties. I do not like it one bit. Truth is eternal.
