The Woman At The
Edge Of The Abyss

By Douglas Herman
Who was she? Does anyone know? Did any New York newspaper ever identify her? Yet she remains indelible in the photograph, her image forever poised at the brink, appearing almost calm although her fear must have been overpowering. She stands at the edge of an abyss, her arm grasping a wrecked window frame while her foot slips perilously close to space. Befitting the moment, her image grows indistinct the more one tries to focus.
We see her standing there, minutes from death. Forthright in appearance, she appears almost delicate nonetheless, like a curious child. Yet she must have been terrified. She must have been shocked. But mostly she must have been very brave.
The woman at the edge of the abyss was someone's daughter, sister, lover, friend. Actually there are two women in the maw of wreckage. One--the one we see--stands courageously at the very edge of the North Tower. To her right another woman sprawls at the edge of the debris (how hot can it be?), peering down, suffering from vertigo. Farther to their right, a man waits in the shadows, stunned, shirtless.
We owe this unknown woman an enormous debt, every one of us who stubbornly serves the painful truth--in whatever fashion--against formidible resistance. She may as well be Lady Liberty, poised before a great chasm, uncertain whether to stand strong and await rescue, or fling herself down, a symbol of a doomed republic.
We owe this unknown women on the 94th floor a great debt because she bravely made herself visible. She did not cower in the shadows. The woman at the edge of the abyss is the bold rebuttal to the overwhelming lies of the state and the state-supported media.
Why? Recall that well-paid experts testified that all three (3) towers collapsed due to intense heat. Yet here we see a pair of women, heavily dressed, standing on what should have been red hot steel. Does she, and her suppine twin, look ready to melt?
At that exact moment, numerous New York firefighters struggled upwards, burdened with equipment, confident they could contain the fires. They radioed back that they could "knock down" the fire. Ironically, at about the time of their radio report, the building was knocked down on them. Never before had one building collapsed, and certainly not three of them, so stoutly built.
The official story, of the collapse of the trio of WTC buildings, is an obvious, government lie. But cracks are beginning to show in the official version. Finally, patriotic Americans are beginning to trickle forward and say what these women knew all along. The WTC fires were a classic case of smoke and mirrors, a nefarious crime certainly, an act of terrorism assuredly. The state either conspired to kill the young woman or allowed others to do it for draconian reasons.
"Photos show people walking around in the hole in the North Tower where 10,000 gallons of jet fuel were supposedly burning," said Morgan Reynolds, former chief economist for the US Department of Labor under George W. Bush. "By the time the South Tower was hit, most of the North Tower,s flames had already vanished, burning for only 16 minutes...The fire did not grow over time, probably because it quickly ran out of fuel and was suffocating rather than the sprinkler system dousing the fires."
Morgan may be the highest government official--thus far--to speak openly about the crime lurking behing the crime. "If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an 'inside job' and a government attack on America would be compelling," said Reynolds,
Why should anyone care about an unknown woman they do not even know--that no one knows? Aside from her courage (would You have stood so close to the edge?), she repudiates a great lie. That intense and prolonged fires melted steel, weakening the trusses that this young woman allegedly stood upon, causing not one, not two, but THREE buildings to collapse! She repudiates the Official Government Version of Events--lies--which all too frequently becomes a nation's history. Thus we owe her a great debt of gratitude. Had she not stood there, within view of everyone, the government might have gotten away with claims of blast furnace temperatures sufficent to weaken steel. Instead she stood her ground so to speak, until explosions occurred and brought those three buildings down around her and almost 3,000 others.
The woman at the edge of the abyss is Rachel Corrie. She is the ghost of Joan of Arc and she is every witch falsely accused, sentenced, and burned at Salem. The woman at the abyss is every victim of a great crime, a great cover-up, and a great lie, perpetrated by the state for the benefit of the state. She is your daughter, your friend, your sister. Do not forget her.
