Dear Honored Citizen(s):

You are invited to attend a forum at MIT concerning the Collapse of the 3 World
Trade Center high-rises on 9/11.

I am the founder of the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
which is a fast-growing collaboration of more than 350 architectural and engineering
professionals. The last few years have witnessed the emergence of mounting scientific
evidence that the collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not adequately
explained by the official theories outlined in the 2002 FEMA and 2005 NIST reports.
The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth call for a new, fully funded unimpeachable
Congressional investigation with subpoena power.

We are dedicated to presenting the evidence that supports our call in this
comprehensive presentation.

What the Evidence Shows

Sounds of explosions coming from each of the WTC Twin Towers were heard well
before the collapses began. These were reported by over 118 first responders
in the FDNY recorded “oral histories” (the release of which was
resisted by the City of NY until forced by a New York Times FOIA filing).Numerous
accounts of “flashes of light” which commonly accompany the detonation
of demolition charges were also reported. Video footage reveals the striking
symmetry, explosiveness and rapidity of the Towers’ destruction.This destruction
differed from the more classic controlled demolition of WTC 7 in its extreme

Each rubble site contained tons of molten metal “flowing like lava”
in the basements – as observed by Leslie Robertson, WTC structural engineer,
and numerous other first responders. The temperatures of these flows were far
in excess of anything possible from a jet fuel fire or from the burning contents
of the buildings. Scientists have determined conclusively that thermate –
a high-tech incendiary – was used. Chemical traces of thermate were found in
the steel and dust. Each “collapse” exhibited thick billowing pyroclastic
dust clouds that rapidly expanded to over ten times the volume of the buildings.Each
also showed squibs (explosive ejections of pulverized building materials) easily
observed in many of the videos. The twin towers were explained to have “pancaked”
down, however there was no stack of floors found at the bottom – nearly
everything was blown outside the footprint of the towers in a symmetrical pattern
extending 1,200 feet in diameter around each building – and 90,000 tons
of concrete , metal decking and floor trusses were completely missing from the
debris field.

Most damaging to the official story, WTC building 7 was a 47-story high-rise
not hit by an airplane and yet became the 3rd modern steel-framed skyscraper
to collapse symmetrically at near free-fall speed on 9/11 – in the exact
manner of a controlled demolition with explosives. It collapsed into a neat,
compact pile, exhibiting ALL the classic features of controlled demolition:

* Rapid onset of “collapse”
* Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a full second prior to collapse
* Symmetrical “collapse” – through the path of greatest resistance
– at near free-fall speed (i.e. the [core] columns offered no resistance)
* “Collapses” into its own footprint – with the steel skeleton
broken up for shipment
* Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic dust clouds
* Tons of molten metal found in basement by demolition workers
* Chemical signature of thermate (a high-tech incendiary) found in slag and
dust samples
* Rapid oxidation and intergranular melting found (by FEMA) in the structural
steel samples
* Expert corroboration from controlled demolition professionals
* Foreknowledge of “collapse” by First Responders, media, NYPD,
FDNY, etc.

You can review all of this evidence and much more online at

Thank you – we look forward to meeting you at the forum!

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!

We continue to update the website to make the nearly 3000 articles easier to find, read and share. Thanks for visiting us!
