9/11/2001: Forbidden Questions, Explosive Answers

Dr. Steven E. Jones
Seminar at Utah Valley University
Physics Department, Room PS-202

Why did three (not two) skyscrapers fall to the ground on 9/11 at near free-fall rates, killing thousands? Why were numerous bone fragments found on a roof-top 600 feet away? Why did the National Inst. of Standards and Technology, charged by Congress to explain the collapses, concede to us, "...We are unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse"[1]? Why did NIST refuse to look for residues from explosives? (We, however, did so using state-of-the-art methods and I will report results.) What is the significance of red/gray chips found in the 9/11 dust? What is super-thermite? Who are the whistleblowers and what do they have to say? Why were there no air defenses on 9/11?

For those who prefer a more "technical" abstract, here you go: Scrutinizing dust samples collected shortly after the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, I observed numerous red-orange chips in the dust. Many of these chips showed a gray layer on one side and a red layer on the other side. We applied optical microscope, scanning-electron-microscope (SEM) and x-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS) methods to analyze these unusual "red/gray" chips. The chemical composition will be discussed. A flame test showed high reactivity of the chips with ejection of hot material; this and other tests differentiated the behavior of the red chips from that of paint samples. We consider some implications of these findings.

Architects, Engineers & Educators Speak Out

9:30 am ET - 6:30 pm ET
Faneuil Hall
Boston, MA

A day-long conference on Saturday December 15 at Boston's historic Faneuil Hall is entitled, "The Destruction of World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7: A Case for Controlled Demolition." In this scientific look at the collapses, a panel of four well-known and credentialed science and engineering professionals will present the case that the government's theories could not possibly be true and that most of the evidence points to the one theory that's been completely avoided by the government and the media.

The event will feature architect Richard Gage, AIA, of, former BYU physics professor Dr. Steven Jones, Underwriters Laboratories whistleblower Kevin Ryan, and new to the scene, Dr. Joel Hirschhorn, formerly a professor of Metallurgy at the University of Wisconsin and a senior staff member at the US Congressional Office of Technology Assessment from 1978 to 1991, who testified more than 50 times before congress on scientific issues.

Blueprint for Truth
130 Architects & Engineers Examine the Evidence with Richard Gage, AIA, Architect

Grand Lake Theater 3200 Grand Avenue, Oakland 510-452-3556

Bay Area Architect Richard Gage, AIA, will discuss the features of all 3 World Trade Center building "collapses". Not only the Twin Towers, but also 47-story World Trade Center Building #7, not hit by an airplane, completely "collapsed" on September 11, 2001 at nearly free-fall speed.

Architects and engineers are especially invited to attend this event.

"The tall, strong Twin Towers were broken into very small pieces and massive clouds of dust long before anything hit the ground," Gage observes. "We did not see them 'collapse' that morning, we saw them explode into dust and individual steel components. Watch the videos for yourself -- they are widely available on the Internet (including ours at and they all show the same essential features. Flashes of light and sounds of explosions were witnessed by 118 first responders and recorded by the FDNY. Huge rubble clouds formed immediately and symmetrically outside the buildings as they fell. The destruction was of amazing speed, evenness, and thoroughness, that it could only have been very carefully engineered and planned in advance."

Tons of molten iron "flowing like lava" was found by demolition crews and by Leslie Robertson, the World Trade Center structural engineer. This observation can only be explained by the use of thermite, an incendiary used by the military to cut through steel. Chemical analysis on the steel and the dust performed by physicist Steven Jones, Ph.D., and 3 other scientists found the classic signature traces of thermite.

Gage has been joined by more than 130 architects and engineers who have signed an online petition to the members of the House of Representatives and the Senate demanding a truly independent investigation with subpoena power.

Gage has made his presentation to several California architectural firms, colleges, and universities. At the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, he and author Barrie Zwicker spoke to over 500 people at two events. More than 90% of those in attendance agreed with his conclusions.

Is bringing his Patriot Tour to town

See Bob's Tour Schedule

Dr. Bowman challenges us to "Take Back America" for the people.

He explains why we need a government that:

  • Follows the Constitution
  • Honors the Truth, and
  • Serves the People
Think what a difference that would make! No more imperial presidency. No more undeclared wars of aggression. No more spying on the American people. No more jailing of dissidents. No more corporations importing and exploiting millions of illegal immigrants to drive down wages. No more exporting of jobs. No more NAFTA. No more North American Union. No more government lies, false-flag attacks, and cover-ups. No more corporate welfare. No more health plans written by insurance companies and pharmaceutical manufacturers. No more energy policies written by Exxon and Enron. No more trillions in debt. Most importantly, no more using our sons and daughters to kill Arabs for the oil companies. Let's "Take Back America !!"

"Deconstructing Deceit: 9/11, the Media, and Misinformation"

Berkeley City College
2050 Center St., Berkeley, CA

An afternoon colloquium on recent historical public perception management, information control, and propaganda surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. The two sessions focused on media coverage and misinformation around 9/11 issues with examples of case studies concerning the destruction of the WTC towers and Building 7.


Session One - History and Context: A conversation between BCC history instructor Mickey S. Huff, MA, and KPFA's Guns and Butter host Bonnie Faulkner on the weaponization of information in U.S. history and media misinformation and alternative coverage on 9/11 issues;

Session Two - Case Studies and Misinformation: Architect Richard Gage, AIA, and research scientist Jim Hoffman, MFA, will focus on the role of media perception management and misinformation in cementing the official narrative of the 9/11 attack underlying the War on Terror -- particularly regarding the destruction of three WTC skyscrapers. Gage presented factual evidence challenging media and government reports on the "collapse" of the buildings while Hoffman analyzed various official accounts of misinformation and perception management. Q&A followed each session.

The event was part of the History of U.S. Media class for BCC's Global Studies Program and is sponsored by Project Censored, KPFA's Guns and Butter, SF911Truth, Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth, and Scholars for 911 Truth and Justice. The event was free and open to the public and is wheelchair accessible. It was attented by about 80 persons.

On Saturday, April 14, 2007 San Diegans for 9/11 Truth, a local citizens activist group, conducted a citizens' grand jury investigation into the wrongful deaths that occurred at the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001. A common-law grand jury of 23 citizens was impaneled to review the evidence and the grand jury's findings have since been announced. The event was open to the public, and attented by about 60 persons.

From noon to 9:00 PM, grand jurors assembled in the Aztec Center Council Chambers at San Diego State University to hear testimony from expert witnesses, including architect Richard Gage, and video excerpts from physicist Steven Jones, and engineer Kevin Ryan. Don Paul and Jim Hoffman, coauthors of The 9/11/01 Crimes in New York City: Waking Up from Our Nightmare, led the investigation.


The results are summarized in the following documents:

Rebuilding America's Senses:
Exposing False Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11

The Project for a New American Citizen sponsored Rebuilding America's Senses, a two-day conference aimed at exposing state- sponsored terrorism and its application in staged false-flag operations. By understanding these two fundamental concepts, one can better comprehend how governments have historically used fear and even terrorism as a means to control their populations. The conference was be organized around the historical and present use of state-sponsored terrorism, as well as its inevitable use in the future. It is our belief that a citizenry who is aware of such tactics will not be so easily coerced into supporting another unjustifiable war and continued degradation of their rights.

We're Not Buying It! National Shopping Boycott

National Boycott To Impeach for Peace and Justice
A Non-Partisan Coalition of Americans Standing Together for Justice

Of the 100 largest economic entities in the world, more than half are transnational corporations. Wal-Mart is larger, in economic terms, than 182 countries. After 9/11 Bush told us that the best thing was to quietly go shopping. We can collectively say no to being quiet and say no to shopping. It is time for Americans take a one-week break, from Tax Day April 15 to April 22, and stop all corporate shopping, delay major purchases, stay out of shopping malls, and avoid national chain stores. People of conscience, let's send a message to corporate America and Congress to end the war in Iraq and move forward immediately on the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.

Lifting the Fog: The Scientific Method Applied to the World Trade Center Disaster

This free day-long conference at the University of California at Berkeley campus focused on the scientific method and forensic science as applied to the crime scene investigations of the World Trade Center disaster on 9/11/01. Presenters included Dr. Steven Jones, Jim Hoffman, Jenna Orkin, and Janette MacKinlay among others. The event was attended by over 400 people. See, which includes links to streaming video of the entire event.

Project Censored Media Accountability Conference

Peter Phillips and Project Censored hosted physicist Steven Jones as a keynote speaker for its Project Censored Media Accountability Conference at the Sonoma State University campus in Sonoma, California. This event marked the 30th release of the top under-covered news stories of the year and was attended primarily by individuals involved in media and new to the scientific questions behind in the 9/11 investigation. The event garnered media attention by the local conservative paper which attacked Jones by describing him as a discredited professor. Project Censored responded with an article by Peter Phillips and Andrew Roth in .

Research on 9/11: Why the Official Story Cannot Be True

Colorado 9/11Visibility hosted scientists Steven E. Jones and Kevin Ryan to discuss evidence regarding the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11/01, and Kevin Barrett to comment on psychological aspects of the attack. The highly successful events were attended by 300 in Denver and 250 in Boulder and were covered by the Daily Camera among other media.

9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out

Pacifica radio station KPFA ( ) in Berkeley California hosted editors and contributors to the book, "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out." Speakers included Dr. David Ray Griffin, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, Dr. Peter Phillips, Kevin Ryan and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, discussion moderator. The event was the first event involving the questioning of the official version of the 9/11 attacks that the KPFA radio station has ever sponsored. It was later replayed on C-SPAN2 Book TV in November of 2006. The event was sold out and turned away over 100 people at the door. Many of those in attendance were first-time listeners to the details of the potential role of insiders in the attacks of 9/11/01 and expressed shock at some of the information presented. Presenters assessed the Bush administration's responsibility for the attacks on 9/11 and suggested that the attacks were used to enact long established plans to expand the American empire. The DVD is available at

Science Applied to the WTC Collapses

Researcher Jim Hoffman gave two presentations at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri, examining evidence of the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings and critiquing the official explanations in light of the scientific method. The presentations, described here examined the official explanation of the collapses of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7, with special attention to NIST's recent report.
