The Fraud Of 911
A Firefighter Looks At Premeditated Murder At WTC

By Douglas Herman
"The present state of America is truly alarming to every man who is capable of reflection." -Tom Paine
Almost every professional and intelligent person I have spoken with over the past few years will listen half-heartedly as I list the reasons why 911 was an inside job. Although they acknowledge they have little trust in the veracity and honesty of their US government (which has lied to them consistently over the last five years), these same intelligent people nevertheless cling to some childlike trust in the government version of events for September 11, 2001.
Why? Because to believe otherwise would leave most Americans floundering like a storm-tossed ship that has lost its rudder. An unnatural and abiding trust in government has replaced their trust in God. Yet every godly, religious thinker-from Jeremiah to Jesus to Mohandas Gandhi-- throughout history has warned humans about the dangers of governments. But to actually reflect on this simple truth would leave most folks fearful and befuddled.
And without any understanding of history (The Reichstag Fire for example), and without a dose of healthy skepticism, most citizens will believe the best from their governments. If ignorance is bliss, a childlike trust in the state must be ecstasy.
The State Lies To Survive
Powerful governments, too often comprised of sociopathic men, do diabolical and murderous things everyday to consolidate even more power and wealth. Sadly, most citizens will cling to a far-fetched, government version of events that defies logic, basic science, credibility and mathematical odds.
The WTC complex of seven steel buildings was not destroyed by two aluminum airplanes. Repeat: THE WTC COMPLEX OF SEVEN STEEL BUILDINGS WAS NOT DESTROYED BY TWO ALUMINUM AIRPLANES. That would be a physical impossibility. Instead the seven stout steel buildings were purposely and utterly destroyed by clever planning and high explosions. Not one of the seven buildings survived.
To paraphrase CIA insider, Fletcher Prouty, in his online essay The Guns of Dallas": "Almost everyone who has taken the time to do any reading and thinking about that crime knows by nowsome of the hard facts of this murder and put to rest once and for all the 'cover-up' report..."
Colonel Prouty was referring to the murder of JFK and the subsequent illogical and much discredited Warren Commission Report but he might well have said the same of the illogical and much-discredited Kean Commission Report. The Kean Report fails to mention even the unexplained collapse of a 47 story government building, the WTC-7!
No Reports of A Raging Fire
Even more perplexing: why do most Americans prefer to take the word of proven liars over the words of honest men? Firemen, policemen, medics, reporters and first responders; Why would they lie?
A New York firefighter named Nick DeMasi, searching in the ruins of the WTC days later said: "There were a total of four black boxes (recovered). We found three."
US officials--these very same officials caught in scores of subsequent lies for the past five years--denied finding any. Which people do you prefer to believe? Proven liars or honest men?
Even more damaging, to the official government version, a team of brave New York firemen ascended to the impacted floors of the World Trade tower. Their exact words when seeing the fire were: "We should be able to knock it down with two lines." ( The Memory Hole - Excerpts From Firefighters' WTC Tape on 9/11)
Two hoses. A half dozen men altogether, to put out the fire.
But, imagine, with the fires in the World Trade Towers out, a REAL investigation would have occurred. There would have been no need to attack Iraq. The terrorists would have been exposed much closer to home.
Instead the radios used by the firefighters on the 70th floor were likely monitored, by the perpetrators, and out of fear of being found out, the towers were hastily brought down.
Despite all physical impossibility, seven stout steel skyscrapers were destroyed that day. Three of the skyscrapers allegedly collapsed due to a firestorm that quickly burnt itself out and then smoldered. Indeed, almost miraculously, The Woman At The Edge Of The Abyss stood on steel that MIT professors said should have been red hot. How then could the tower have collapsed if the steel had cooled?
Recently I completed a firefighter course of classroom and field tests. A fire instructor mentioned the word Conduction. Simply, conduction is a scientific law that some metals conduct heat better than others. An iron rod or steel beam or girder will conduct heat throughout its entire length before melting. Like your barbecue grill will maintain its integrity although subject to repeated intense heat. Or a well-designed and constructed skyscraper will maintain its strength and integrity although subject to raging fires. Like that 56 story steel building in Venezuela that recently withstood a 17-hour fire and remained standing.
According to an Associated Press report: "Early tests on steel beams from the World Trade Center show they generally met or were stronger than design requirements, ruling them out as a contributing cause of the collapse of the towers. Engineers with the National Institute of Standards and Technology have conducted preliminary tests on some of the 236 pieces of steel from the wreckage, said Frank Gayle, who is leading NIST's review of the steel. The tests found that, typical for construction steel used in the 1960s when the World Trade Center was erected, the steel beams exceeded requirements to bear 36,000 pounds per square inch. Often they were capable of bearing around 42,000 pounds per square inch."
Simply, due to Conductivity, a fuel fire does not have the intensity and longevity to compromise a steel structure in 45 minutes time. Or even over 17 hours. Only an absurdist-or a citizen in denial--would believe that two aluminum airplanes and several thousand gallons of kerosene (jet fuel) could utterly destroy seven stout steel buildings.
Months earlier, a knowledgeable professional man said: "The building (WTC) was designed to have a fully loaded [Boeing] 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time (comparable in size and weight to a 757). I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door -- this intense grid -- and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting."
Frank A. De Martini, Manager of WTC Construction and Project Management, was killed in the WTC demolition. He spoke those words with assurance, months before in a cable episode of Modern Marvels, (World Trade Center - A Modern Marvel). He died when the towers were intentionally imploded.
More than 300 New York firefighters died that day. They were intentionally murdered. The confident words of that one firefighter team, at the impact site----"we should be able to knock it down with two lines"--- still resonate with me.
