This article went out all over London, England today. Wow, it was incredible, on the same page, they actually publicized Dylan Avery's new film and loose change. there was plenty of co-intel, but they dropped the bombshell of the nano-thermite paper and that an estimated 10tonnes of it were found at ground zero. They admit there and then that it was military grade!! Ground breaking day, and Sheen and Alex triggered it. Way to go chaps.
This went out on a FREE paper to millions of Londoners today. We were misquoted but overall quite good. Just incredible.http://www.metro.co.uk/news/newsfocus/article.html?9/11_revisited:_Why_September_11th_conspiracy_theories_survive&in_article_id=733085&in_page_id=659/11 revisited: Why September 11th conspiracy theories survive
By JAMES DAY - Wednesday, September 9, 2009
There are more than 50 9/11 conspiracy theories circulating, while putting '9 11 conspiracies' into Google attracts more than 600million web hits – 217million more than '9 11' on its own. Why the fascination with secret agreements?
'Belief of conspiracy theories is incredibly widespread. For example, nine out of ten people still think JFK was assassinated as part of a conspiracy,' says Dr Patrick Leman, a psychologist from Royal Holloway University and a leading figure in the study of conspiracy theories.
'There are two main reasons why people believe in the unbelievable. First, they see a gap in their understanding and fill it with ambiguity rather than a trusted account. This is because there is a human need to associate major events with a major cause. We don't want to believe only 19 people could have carried out 9/11 – because it was big, something big must be behind it.
'Second, belief in conspiracy theories is highest among those on the peripheries of society. Those not part of the mainstream are more likely to engage in conspiracy theories as a way of being part of something.'
The latest 9/11 theory comes from a paper entitled Active Thermitic Material Discovered In Dust From The 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe, Open Chemical Physics Journal, Vol.2 (2009).
The study, led by Dr Niels Harrit, of the University of Copenhagen, alleges that the destruction of the twin towers, and the lesser remembered Tower Seven, was caused by nano-thermite, a mixture of aluminium and rust powder that reacts to intense heat, producing molten iron and an explosion.
The substance, it is claimed, is useable as a rocket propellant and contains more energy than dynamite – and more than ten tonnes are estimated to have been found near Ground Zero. Thermite can be bought by anyone, but the nano process is a strictly military (and still experimental) affair.
A copy of the paper has been sent to the FBI and Dr Harrit says the response has been 'surprisingly receptive'.
Other theories allege the twin towers were destroyed by controlled explosions, that a missile fired from inside the US rather than a plane hit the Pentagon and that United Airlines flight 93 was shot down instead of crashing.
Possibly the most interesting, though, is that 47-storey Tower Seven housed a secret bunker from where 9/11 was orchestrated and that it was destroyed by a controlled explosion to bury the evidence. This is based on the Department of Defense (DOD), CIA and US Secret Service all having offices there.
Added to this, floor 23 was a New York City command centre on standby for civil emergencies – but it had already been evacuated.
Experts, though, are sticking to cold, hard facts. Professor Anthony Glees, director at the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, says: '9/11 was the work of a group organised and funded by al-Qaeda; the context in which they were radicalised and trained as suicide fighters was that of the Taliban.
'Trouble is, some people continue to believe the conspiracy in question was not organised by al-Qaeda but the CIA. Like all untrue conspiracy theories, this is palpable nonsense.'
Dr Lars Berger, lecturer in politics and contemporary history of the Middle East at the University of Salford, adds: 'All the theories brought forward by those who tried to instrumentalise public shock about 9/11 were done for financial and political goals, and have been thoroughly debunked.
