New 9-11 investigation needed to prove science doesn’t lie

Imagine a crime is committed and the lead investigator names an individual as being responsible for the crime without having any hard evidence. Would the case hold up in a court of law? Anyone with any common sense knows that in order to prosecute someone for a crime, you must have some hard evidence against the defendant.

Would you believe me if I said the FBI admits they have no hard evidence connecting Osama bin Laden to the attacks of Sept. 11? Not one mention of Sept. 11 can be found on bin Laden’s most wanted poster.

This is only one piece of a massive puzzle that has a worldwide community searching for answers and researching the facts. The 9/11 Truth Movement is comprised of people from all walks of life with a common goal — a new independent investigation into the events of Sept. 11.

Many involved in the Truth Movement are family members of those who died on that fateful day.

Bob McIlvaine lost his son Bobby on Sept. 11 and is searching for answers.

“[A]nd this is the legacy of my son. If I were to have died in those towers, he’d be doing the same thing. He wants to know the truth, I want to know the truth,” said an emotional Mcllvaine at the 9/11 Commission hearings in New York City in 2004.

When looking at all the evidence, nothing produces a “smoking gun” more than the collapse of both World Trade Center towers and World Trade Center Building 7.

All three buildings fell symmetrically at near free-fall speed into the path of most resistance. The National Institute for Standards and Technology investigated the collapse of both towers for the 9/11 Commission. They claimed that the collapse of both towers were due to the impact damage of the aircraft and the fires that weakened the steel columns, which in turn caused the floors to sag and collapse inward — bringing the upper floors down.

NIST can’t explain what caused the “global collapse” of both towers. Why didn’t the unaffected and undamaged floors below slow down or stop the collapse? How can 400,000 yards of concrete be pulverized into dust due to a gravitational collapse? NIST has no answers for these questions.

Steven Jones, a former BYU physics professor, has found active thermitic material in WTC dust samples. Thermite is an incendiary that can cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.

WTC 7, a 47-story building collapsed at free-fall acceleration into its own footprint at 5:20 p.m. This structure was not hit by a plane and, according to NIST, collapsed primarily due to fire — a first in the history of steel-framed buildings. Only small pockets of fire in isolated areas of the building occurred, somehow allowing it to collapse symmetrically. Oddly enough, its collapse was omitted from the 9/11 Commission Report.

In addition, BBC news reported that WTC 7 collapsed 20 minutes before it actually did.

Considering the implications the events of Sept. 11 had on the world around us, these questions are important and need to be answered. Those who ask questions should not be considered “nut jobs,” but rather concerned citizens looking for answers and demanding accountability. It’s the least we can do for the victims who were murdered that day. Science doesn’t lie.
