At 9:27 pm a massive fire erupts

8
00:00:57,490 --> 00:01:00,820
inside the Reichstag, Germany's house of parliament.

00:01:03,550 --> 00:01:04,870
Marinus van der Lubbe,

10
00:01:04,870 --> 00:01:07,530
a 24-year-old half-blind Dutch communist

11
00:01:07,530 --> 00:01:09,890
is found half naked behind the building

12
00:01:09,890 --> 00:01:11,900
and arrested on site.

13
00:01:13,530 --> 00:01:15,350
After an interrogation and trial,

14
00:01:15,350 --> 00:01:19,800
Marinus is beheaded three days before his 25th birthday.

15
00:01:21,330 --> 00:01:23,390
Historians argue that Gestapo police

16
00:01:23,390 --> 00:01:25,850
enter the Reichstag through an underground tunnel

17
00:01:25,850 --> 00:01:28,890
and soaked the building with chemicals and gasoline,

18
00:01:28,890 --> 00:01:30,810
with Marinus van der Lubbe arriving later

19
00:01:30,810 --> 00:01:33,020
to start the fire with his shirt.

20
00:01:34,330 --> 00:01:35,530
Later that evening,

00:01:35,530 --> 00:01:37,110
Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering

22
00:01:37,110 --> 00:01:38,990
meet in front of the flaming debris

23
00:01:38,990 --> 00:01:40,990
to round up a list of communists

24
00:01:40,990 --> 00:01:43,760
and execute them that same night.

25
00:01:45,350 --> 00:01:48,790
The next day, Hitler passed the Reichstag Fire Decree,

26
00:01:48,790 --> 00:01:50,850
which suspended most civil liberties

27
00:01:50,850 --> 00:01:52,670
and banned publications considered

28
00:01:52,670 --> 00:01:55,300
unfriendly to the Nazi cause.

29
00:01:57,530 --> 00:02:00,630
Hitler then takes Nazi control of the German parliament,

30
00:02:00,630 --> 00:02:01,990
passes The Enabling Acts,

31
00:02:01,990 --> 00:02:04,470

00:02:46,460 --> 00:02:48,520
Although Roosevelt received multiple warnings

44

that (speaking indistinctly),

54
00:03:11,365 --> 00:03:14,392
was the information available in Washington,

from the intercepted dispatchers,

56
00:03:17,093 --> 00:03:21,474
which told when and where Japan would probably strike.

57

nicknamed the Trinity Test.

84
00:05:01,177 --> 00:05:04,660
The detonation was equal to 19 kilotons of TNT,

85
00:05:04,660 --> 00:05:06,881
and left a crater of radioactive glass

86
00:05:06,881 --> 00:05:10,751

70,000 people are instantly killed as a result.

90
00:05:23,801 --> 00:05:26,483
The bomb completely obliterated one square mile

91
00:05:26,483 --> 00:05:29,663
and started fires across almost five square miles,

92

cost nearly $2,000,000,000

102

in United States history,

111

114
00:06:40,237 --> 00:06:41,877
Groves used a practice

115
00:06:41,877 --> 00:06:44,397
known as compartmentalization,

116
00:06:44,397 --> 00:06:47,457
which limits intelligence to a need to know basis,

117
00:06:47,457 --> 00:06:48,677
and often leaves those working

118
00:06:48,677 --> 00:06:51,107

Although tens of thousands of people were directly affected,

122

the Manhattan Project was kept a secret.

So secret that Vice President Harry Truman

124
00:07:06,520 --> 00:07:10,030
only became aware of it after President Roosevelt's death.

125
00:07:12,140 --> 00:07:14,200

"Compartmentalization of knowledge

00:12:51,668 --> 00:12:54,581
responsibility on Al Jazeera television.

186
00:12:57,188 --> 00:12:59,151
Regardless, Bush claims he wants

187
00:12:59,151 --> 00:13:00,851
Bin Laden dead or alive,

188
00:13:00,851 --> 00:13:03,191
and the CIA is dispatched to Afghanistan

189
00:13:03,191 --> 00:13:06,161
to bring back his head in a box.

190
00:13:08,211 --> 00:13:10,071
On December 13th, 2001,

191
00:13:10,071 --> 00:13:12,111
the Department of Defense releases a video tape

192
00:13:12,111 --> 00:13:15,351
allegedly discovered in a house in Afghanistan.

193
00:13:15,351 --> 00:13:17,631
Osama Bin Laden discusses the attacks,

194
00:13:17,631 --> 00:13:20,194
but does not take responsibility.

195
00:13:20,194 --> 00:13:22,954
American mainstream media and even President Bush

196
00:13:22,954 --> 00:13:26,594
would portray this video tape as absolute proof of his guilt

197
00:13:26,594 --> 00:13:28,654
^even though the translation was not conducted

198
00:13:28,654 --> 00:13:31,294
^by a third party and was instead provided

199
00:13:31,294 --> 00:13:34,144
^by the Department of Defense.

200
00:13:35,274 --> 00:13:37,194
International establishments and many others

201
00:13:37,194 --> 00:13:39,535
questioned the legitimacy of the tape.

202
00:13:39,535 --> 00:13:44,369
- (speaking foreign language)

203
00:14:04,539 --> 00:14:06,239
- [Voiceover] After 9/11, the FBI

204
00:14:06,239 --> 00:14:08,099
and law enforcement agencies discovered

205
00:14:08,099 --> 00:14:11,619
evidence conveniently pointing to the hijackers.

206
00:14:11,619 --> 00:14:14,571
It seems some of them were determined to leave a trail.

207
00:14:16,321 --> 00:14:17,381
They even managed to find

208
00:14:17,381 --> 00:14:20,381
hijacker Satam Al Suqami's passport,

209
00:14:20,381 --> 00:14:21,921
perfectly intact on a sidewalk

210
00:14:21,921 --> 00:14:24,693
before the south tower's collapse.

211
00:14:26,023 --> 00:14:27,563
^Is it possible that the hijackers

212
00:14:27,563 --> 00:14:30,043
^were merely patsies in a scheme much larger

213
00:14:30,043 --> 00:14:33,333
^than themselves or Osama Bin Laden?

214
00:14:35,543 --> 00:14:37,543
- [Voiceover] Be careful where we stay in the loop

215
00:14:37,543 --> 00:14:38,964
'cause these, they're being recorded,

216
00:14:38,964 --> 00:14:41,395
and these tapes will be handed over.

217
00:14:43,084 --> 00:14:44,825
Everybody copy that?

218
00:14:44,825 --> 00:14:45,985
- [Voiceover] ACC copy.

219
00:14:45,985 --> 00:14:49,505
- [Voiceover] I'm glad I'm not flying today. (laughs)

220
00:14:49,505 --> 00:14:49,990
- [Voiceover] Don't worry, Jim,

221
00:14:49,990 --> 00:14:51,470
we'll carjack you on the way home.

222
00:14:51,470 --> 00:14:53,840
(laughter)

223
00:14:55,170 --> 00:14:58,070
- [Voiceover] Between September 2000 and June 2001,

224
00:14:58,070 --> 00:15:00,910
the Federal Aviation Administration, FAA,

225
00:15:00,910 --> 00:15:02,530
would send fighter jets to intercept

226
00:15:02,530 --> 00:15:06,310
errant aircraft 67 times.

227
00:15:06,310 --> 00:15:08,530
Interceptions were routine and usually occur

228
00:15:08,530 --> 00:15:10,411
within 10 minutes of a sign of trouble,

229
00:15:10,411 --> 00:15:14,172
such as losing radio contact and transponder signal,

230
00:15:14,172 --> 00:15:16,004
or flying off course.

231
00:15:18,254 --> 00:15:19,954
On September 11th, we are told

232
00:15:19,954 --> 00:15:21,954
that four commercial airliners

233
00:15:21,954 --> 00:15:24,334
were off course and out of communication,

234
00:15:24,334 --> 00:15:27,784
and not one of them could be intercepted.

235
00:15:29,294 --> 00:15:30,994
On the morning of September 11th,

236
00:15:30,994 --> 00:15:32,494
President Bush was in Florida

237
00:15:32,494 --> 00:15:34,974
to promote an education policy.

238
00:15:34,974 --> 00:15:37,695
At approximately 8:30 am he left his hotel

239
00:15:37,695 --> 00:15:41,265
and headed for Booker Elementary School in Sarasota.

240
00:15:42,395 --> 00:15:43,675
Before entering the building,

241
00:15:43,675 --> 00:15:47,055
he was aware a plane had struck one of the Twin Towers.

242
00:15:47,055 --> 00:15:49,695
In fact, Bush claimed more than once,

243
00:15:49,695 --> 00:15:53,717
that he saw the first strike live on television.

244
00:15:53,717 --> 00:15:56,397
This is impossible.

245
00:15:56,397 --> 00:15:59,747
Unless President Bush saw something the public has not.

246
00:15:59,739 --> 00:16:02,179
Video of the first strike was not broadcast

247
00:16:02,179 --> 00:16:04,111
until later that evening.

248
00:16:05,283 --> 00:16:08,603
Minutes after Flight 175 strikes the south tower,

249
00:16:08,603 --> 00:16:10,143
Chief of Staff, Andrew Card,

250
00:16:10,143 --> 00:16:12,123
leans into President Bush's ear,

251
00:16:12,123 --> 00:16:14,354
whispering and walking away.

252
00:16:15,363 --> 00:16:19,364
And President Bush continues to listen to My Pet Goat.

253
00:16:19,364 --> 00:16:23,304
(children reciting)

254
00:16:23,304 --> 00:16:26,105
Despite the fact that both Twin Towers had been hit,

255
00:16:26,105 --> 00:16:27,645
and another plane was in the air

256
00:16:27,645 --> 00:16:29,585
and suspected to be hijacked,

257
00:16:29,585 --> 00:16:32,585
he remained at the school for a half hour,

258
00:16:32,585 --> 00:16:35,576
addressing the nation at 9:30 am.

259
00:16:37,205 --> 00:16:39,257
How could the Secret Service allow this?

260
00:16:40,106 --> 00:16:41,387
President Bush's itinerary had been

261
00:16:41,387 --> 00:16:44,227
public knowledge since September 7th.

262
00:16:44,227 --> 00:16:45,747
The only way Booker Elementary

263
00:16:45,747 --> 00:16:47,647
could not be considered a target

264
00:16:47,647 --> 00:16:49,187
was if the Secret Service knew

265
00:16:49,187 --> 00:16:51,380
for a fact that it wasn't.

266
00:16:52,287 --> 00:16:53,741
With that being said,

267
00:16:56,210 --> 00:16:59,491
September 11th was day two of Vigilant Guardian,

268
00:16:59,491 --> 00:17:02,611
an exercise staged by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and NORAD,

269
00:17:02,611 --> 00:17:03,951
which simulated hijacked planes

270
00:17:03,951 --> 00:17:06,323
in the northeastern United States.

271
00:17:07,451 --> 00:17:10,093
^It did so by placing inputs onto the screens

272
00:17:10,093 --> 00:17:11,693
^of military controllers at the

273
00:17:11,693 --> 00:17:14,773
^Northeast Air Defense Sector in Rome, New York

274
00:17:14,773 --> 00:17:16,763
^known as NEADS.

275
00:17:18,293 --> 00:17:20,773
As the attacks unfolded, controllers at NEADS

276
00:17:20,773 --> 00:17:22,073
thought that what they were watching

277
00:17:22,073 --> 00:17:23,824
was all part of an exercise.

278
00:17:24,733 --> 00:17:26,594
- [Voiceover] Okay guys, listen up.

279
00:17:26,594 --> 00:17:28,465
Possibly a second hijack.

280
00:17:29,714 --> 00:17:31,887
- [Voiceover] Looking for a squawk and I don't see it.

281
00:17:33,035 --> 00:17:34,377
- [Voiceover] We have smart terrorists today,

282
00:17:34,377 --> 00:17:36,567
they're not giving him a chance to squawk.

283
00:17:38,277 --> 00:17:39,017
- [Voiceover] What are the chances

284
00:17:39,017 --> 00:17:40,917
that a massive hijacking war game

285
00:17:40,917 --> 00:17:43,337
begins on the morning of September 11th

286
00:17:43,337 --> 00:17:44,977
that cripples the very defense sector

287
00:17:44,977 --> 00:17:47,437
in which the attacks take place?

288
00:17:47,437 --> 00:17:49,317
Better yet, who made the decision

289
00:17:49,317 --> 00:17:51,389
to schedule it on that date?

290
00:17:52,497 --> 00:17:55,059
Vigilant Guardian was a branch of Global Guardian,

291
00:17:55,059 --> 00:17:56,859
^an Armageddon exercise being conducted

292
00:17:56,859 --> 00:18:00,231
^at Offutt Air Force Base in cooperation with NORAD.

293
00:18:02,181 --> 00:18:04,001
Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana

294
00:18:04,001 --> 00:18:06,515
^also participated in Global Guardian.

295
00:18:07,425 --> 00:18:09,925
^Instead of returning directly to Washington, D.C.,

296
00:18:09,925 --> 00:18:12,275
^President Bush flew from Booker Elementary

297
00:18:12,065 --> 00:18:14,925
to both Barksdale and Offutt Air Force Base

298
00:18:14,925 --> 00:18:17,415
before returning to The White House.

299
00:18:19,265 --> 00:18:21,425
Another war game, Northern Vigilance,

300
00:18:21,425 --> 00:18:23,785
moved fighter jets from unknown locations

301
00:18:23,785 --> 00:18:25,745
to bases in Canada and Alaska

302
00:18:25,745 --> 00:18:28,255
to monitor a fleet of Russian migs.

303
00:18:30,305 --> 00:18:33,435
^Three F-16s from Andrews Air Force Base,

304
00:18:33,435 --> 00:18:36,535
^located just 15 miles from the Pentagon,

305
00:18:38,345 --> 00:18:41,225
^were flown 180 nautical miles away

306
00:18:41,225 --> 00:18:43,385
^for a training mission in North Carolina,

307
00:18:43,385 --> 00:18:46,515
^leaving them unable to defend the nation's capital.

308
00:18:47,425 --> 00:18:48,725
Langley Air Force Base,

309
00:18:48,725 --> 00:18:51,025
which is 130 miles from the Pentagon,

310
00:18:51,025 --> 00:18:54,545
^would not launch fighter jets until 9:24 am,

311
00:18:54,545 --> 00:18:57,165
^a half hour after the north tower is struck,

312
00:18:57,165 --> 00:18:59,775
^and 10 minutes before the Pentagon.

313
00:19:00,365 --> 00:19:02,645
Although Major Kevin Nasypany at NEADS

314
00:19:02,645 --> 00:19:04,785
ordered them to fly towards the capital,

315
00:19:04,785 --> 00:19:08,075
they are instead sent out to the Atlantic Ocean.

316
00:19:09,525 --> 00:19:11,865
When the Pentagon is hit at 9:37,

317
00:19:11,865 --> 00:19:14,765
they are 150 miles away,

318
00:19:14,765 --> 00:19:16,735
further than when they had started.

319
00:19:16,725 --> 00:19:18,385
To top it all off,

320
00:19:18,385 --> 00:19:20,465
the National Reconnaissance Office in Virginia,

321
00:19:20,465 --> 00:19:23,045
^which monitors and controls the nation's satellites,

322
00:19:23,045 --> 00:19:27,625
^began a drill at 8:45 conducted by a team from the CIA,

323
00:19:27,625 --> 00:19:30,875
in which a plane crashes into their headquarters.

324
00:19:32,245 --> 00:19:33,725
There are a number of other war games

325
00:19:33,725 --> 00:19:36,595
that have yet to be fully disclosed.

326
00:19:36,595 --> 00:19:41,285
(intriguing piano chords)

327
00:19:41,285 --> 00:19:43,453
So, let's review.

328
00:19:44,403 --> 00:19:45,763
On the morning of 9/11,

329
00:19:45,763 --> 00:19:47,723
the United States is running drills

330
00:19:47,723 --> 00:19:51,063
in which hijacked aircraft go in and out of radar,

331
00:19:51,063 --> 00:19:54,023
fighter jets are flown out of the United States,

332
00:19:54,023 --> 00:19:56,913
and planes are crashed into buildings.

333
00:19:58,503 --> 00:20:00,513
What a coincidence.

334
00:20:03,484 --> 00:20:04,707
^- [Voiceover] I'm here with Boston Center,

335
00:20:04,707 --> 00:20:07,530
^we just got information there is a real-world hijack,

336
00:20:07,530 --> 00:20:10,250
^American one, one, he is headed,

337
00:20:10,250 --> 00:20:14,061
^he was 40 miles north of JFK, headed towards JFK.

338
00:20:14,990 --> 00:20:16,751
^We're trying to find out any information

339
00:20:16,751 --> 00:20:17,601
^that we possibly can.

340
00:20:17,601 --> 00:20:19,552
^Apparently the pilot was having a rough time

341
00:20:19,552 --> 00:20:21,632
because there has been threats in the cockpit.

342
00:20:21,632 --> 00:20:23,092
(overlapping chatter)
(people screaming)

343
00:20:23,092 --> 00:20:24,737
It started out of Boston for Los Angeles,

344
00:20:24,737 --> 00:20:26,537
now headed for JFK.

345
00:20:26,537 --> 00:20:28,977
If you have military assistance that is after him

346
00:20:28,977 --> 00:20:31,857
two F-15s, wanted to give you a heads up

347
00:20:31,857 --> 00:20:34,407
to let you know American one, one--

348
00:20:34,407 --> 00:20:34,958
- [Voiceover] Okay.

349
00:20:34,958 --> 00:20:36,178
- [Voiceover] And we're trying to locate any information

350
00:20:36,178 --> 00:20:39,380
as far as a location where he is currently, a mode three,

351
00:20:39,380 --> 00:20:41,521
do you have any information whatsoever?

352
00:20:41,521 --> 00:20:45,041
- [Voiceover] Um, I do not.

353
00:20:45,041 --> 00:20:46,632
Hold on one second.

354
00:20:48,342 --> 00:20:49,522
- [Voiceover] New York told me to hold on.

355
00:20:49,522 --> 00:20:50,404
You heard that, right?

356
00:20:50,404 --> 00:20:54,509
(indistinct chatter)

357
00:20:54,509 --> 00:20:55,429
- [Voiceover] That last flight one was

358
00:20:55,429 --> 00:20:57,549
four, zero, three, nine, seven,

359
00:20:57,549 --> 00:20:59,249
four, zero, three, west,

360
00:20:59,249 --> 00:21:01,729
and they're gonna give us three and five minute updates.

361
00:21:01,729 --> 00:21:02,563
^- [Voiceover] Is there any--

362
00:21:04,939 --> 00:21:05,337
^- [Voiceover] What?

363
00:21:05,337 --> 00:21:07,157
^(overlapping chatter)

364
00:21:11,857 --> 00:21:16,977
^(plane roars through air)

365
00:21:19,054 --> 00:21:24,211
^(explosive crash reverberates)

366
00:21:24,211 --> 00:21:26,835
(sirens wail)
(frantic cries)

367
00:21:26,835 --> 00:21:28,295
- [Voiceover] We're being told a second plane,

368
00:21:28,295 --> 00:21:30,235
a second plane crashed into the building

369
00:21:30,235 --> 00:21:31,455
on the opposite end.

370
00:21:31,455 --> 00:21:35,615
(overlapping shouting)

371
00:21:35,615 --> 00:21:38,008
- [Voiceover] That's not an accident, that's on purpose.

372
00:21:39,537 --> 00:21:41,468
- [Voiceover] We also lost American 77.

373
00:21:41,468 --> 00:21:42,981
- [Voiceover] American 877?

374
00:21:42,981 --> 00:21:45,235
- [Voiceover] American 77 has --

375
00:21:45,235 --> 00:21:46,233
- [Voiceover] Excuse me?

376
00:21:46,233 --> 00:21:48,180
- [Voiceover] Where was he supposed to have, sir?

377
00:21:48,180 --> 00:21:50,420
- [Voiceover] Okay, he was going to LA also--

378
00:21:50,420 --> 00:21:52,335
- [Voiceover] He was also going to LA--

379
00:21:53,236 --> 00:21:54,938
- [Voiceover] From where, sir?

380
00:21:54,938 --> 00:21:56,938
- [Voiceover] I think he was from Boston, also.

381
00:21:56,938 --> 00:21:59,010
Now, let me tell you this story here.

382
00:21:59,010 --> 00:22:00,586
(airplane engines roar)

383
00:22:00,586 --> 00:22:02,981
The Indianapolis Center was working this guy--

384
00:22:02,981 --> 00:22:03,985
- [Voiceover] What guy?

385
00:22:03,985 --> 00:22:05,733
- [Voiceover] American 77.
- [Voiceover] Okay.

386
00:22:05,733 --> 00:22:08,056
- [Voiceover] At flight level three, five, zero...

387
00:22:09,323 --> 00:22:12,104
- [Voiceover] 9:37 am, Arlington, Virginia.

388
00:22:13,286 --> 00:22:17,370
^American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon

389
00:22:17,370 --> 00:22:20,837
^killing 125 people and injuring hundreds more.

390
00:22:21,786 --> 00:22:23,062
^Pentagon authorities deny

391
00:22:23,062 --> 00:22:26,411
that the building had anti-aircraft defenses.

392
00:22:26,411 --> 00:22:28,139
The FBI arrives within minutes,

393
00:22:28,139 --> 00:22:30,698
and the site is declared a federal crime scene,

394
00:22:30,698 --> 00:22:33,146
becoming their exclusive responsibility.

395
00:22:34,348 --> 00:22:35,628
The Pentagon initially denies

396
00:22:35,628 --> 00:22:38,081
that their cameras captured the crash.

397
00:22:40,110 --> 00:22:42,651
^However, in March 2002,

398
00:22:42,651 --> 00:22:44,974
^five images are released to the press,

399
00:22:44,974 --> 00:22:46,015
though the Department of Defense

400
00:22:46,015 --> 00:22:49,319
does not take responsibility for their release.

401
00:22:49,319 --> 00:22:51,391
For years, those five frames were the only

402
00:22:51,391 --> 00:22:54,020
public footage of the Pentagon attack.

403
00:22:56,191 --> 00:22:58,506
That changes in October 2004,

404
00:22:58,506 --> 00:23:01,194
when Scott Bingham files a Freedom of Information Act

405
00:23:01,194 --> 00:23:02,986
requesting video tapes that capture

406
00:23:02,986 --> 00:23:05,073
the impact of Flight 77.

407
00:23:06,315 --> 00:23:08,259
Special Agent McGuire of the FBI

408
00:23:08,259 --> 00:23:10,490
located a CD-ROM that contains copies

409
00:23:10,490 --> 00:23:13,430
of two recordings made by security cameras,

410
00:23:13,430 --> 00:23:15,959
released on March 16th, 2006.
(explosive crash)

411
00:23:15,959 --> 00:23:19,705
(flames crackle)

412
00:23:21,235 --> 00:23:23,112
A video taken from a Citgo gas station,

413
00:23:23,112 --> 00:23:25,523
which is open only to Pentagon employees,

414
00:23:25,523 --> 00:23:29,163
released on September 15th, 2006.

415
00:23:29,175 --> 00:23:31,598
And the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, Viriginia,

416
00:23:31,598 --> 00:23:34,668
^released on December 7th, 2006.

417
00:23:36,272 --> 00:23:38,994
^As of this date, we still have no clear images

418
00:23:38,994 --> 00:23:40,342
of what happened at the Pentagon

419
00:23:40,342 --> 00:23:42,089
on the morning of 9/11.

420
00:23:43,159 --> 00:23:45,634
The official story goes as such:

421
00:23:47,240 --> 00:23:49,040
American Airlines Flight 77

422
00:23:49,040 --> 00:23:52,830
was taken over by five hijackers, led by Hani Hanjour.

423
00:23:54,288 --> 00:23:56,779
Hanjour entered the United States in 1996

424
00:23:56,779 --> 00:23:58,955
to become a professional airline pilot,

425
00:23:58,955 --> 00:24:01,676
though he did not complete a single course.

426
00:24:03,154 --> 00:24:04,946
On the morning of 9/11,

427
00:24:04,946 --> 00:24:06,842
Hani and his four accomplices traveled

428
00:24:06,842 --> 00:24:10,401
to Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C.

429
00:24:11,470 --> 00:24:12,774
They had spent the past weeks

430
00:24:12,774 --> 00:24:16,024
at the Valencia Motel in Laurel, Maryland,

431
00:24:16,024 --> 00:24:18,941
six miles from the National Security Agency.

432
00:24:21,212 --> 00:24:24,707
The 757 allegedly descends over a Sheraton Hotel,

433
00:24:24,707 --> 00:24:26,800
Navy annex, and Citgo gas station

434
00:24:26,800 --> 00:24:28,592
before crossing Washington Boulevard.

435
00:24:28,592 --> 00:24:30,261
(whirring escalates)

436
00:24:30,261 --> 00:24:34,004
Five light poles are struck and knocked out of the ground.

437
00:24:34,004 --> 00:24:39,023
(metal clanks)
(glass shatters)

438
00:24:40,171 --> 00:24:42,871
Flight 77 manages to hit the only section

439
00:24:42,871 --> 00:24:46,391
which was reinforced to withstand a terrorist attack.

440
00:24:46,391 --> 00:24:51,138
(explosive impact roars)

441
00:24:52,235 --> 00:24:54,034
Including reinforced steel

442
00:24:54,034 --> 00:24:57,433
and blast-resistant windows an inch and a half thick.

443
00:25:00,339 --> 00:25:03,827
The renovation, planning for which had begun in 1991,

444
00:25:03,827 --> 00:25:06,424
was only days away from completion.

445
00:25:07,303 --> 00:25:10,215
Ironically, had the plane struck anywhere else,

446
00:25:10,215 --> 00:25:14,227
the casualties and damage would have been far greater.

447
00:25:14,227 --> 00:25:15,896
An area that normally would have housed

448
00:25:15,896 --> 00:25:20,844
up to 5,000 occupants, yielded only 125 casualties.

449
00:25:22,693 --> 00:25:24,212
(helicopter blades whir)
The section hit was

450
00:25:24,212 --> 00:25:26,004
the headquarters of Naval Operations,

451
00:25:26,004 --> 00:25:29,204
Naval Intelligence, and Navy Command Center.

452
00:25:29,204 --> 00:25:30,953
Army personnel were also killed,

453
00:25:30,953 --> 00:25:33,892
along with a number of accountants and budget analysts.

454
00:25:35,135 --> 00:25:37,586
The Arlington County After-Action Report states

455
00:25:37,586 --> 00:25:41,289
that important budget information was in the damaged area.

456
00:25:43,215 --> 00:25:45,199
Norman Mineta was Secretary of Transportation

457
00:25:45,199 --> 00:25:48,487
from 2001 to 2006.

458
00:25:48,487 --> 00:25:49,870
On the morning of September 11th,

459
00:25:49,870 --> 00:25:52,455
when the first plane struck the World Trade Center,

460
00:25:52,455 --> 00:25:54,503
Mineta headed to The White House to enter

461
00:25:54,503 --> 00:25:59,111
the Presidential Emergency Operations Center or PEOC.

462
00:25:59,111 --> 00:26:02,224
At the May 2003 hearing of the 9/11 Commission,

463
00:26:02,224 --> 00:26:04,453
Mineta testified the following:

464
00:26:06,024 --> 00:26:08,130
- During the time that the airplane

465
00:26:08,130 --> 00:26:10,529
coming in to the Pentagon,

466
00:26:11,627 --> 00:26:12,987
there was a young man who would come in

467
00:26:12,987 --> 00:26:15,251
and say to the Vice President,

468
00:26:15,251 --> 00:26:17,767
"The plane is 50 miles out.

469
00:26:17,767 --> 00:26:20,070
"The plane is 30 miles out."

470
00:26:20,070 --> 00:26:21,587
And when he got down to,

471
00:26:21,587 --> 00:26:23,569
"The plane is 10 miles out,"

472
00:26:25,363 --> 00:26:27,848
the young man also said to the Vice President

473
00:26:27,848 --> 00:26:30,664
^"Do the orders still stand?"

474
00:26:30,664 --> 00:26:35,316
^And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around

475
00:26:35,316 --> 00:26:38,068
^and said, "Of course the orders still stand.

476
00:26:38,068 --> 00:26:40,590
^"Have you heard anything to the contrary?"

477
00:26:42,868 --> 00:26:44,845
- [Voiceover] However, the 9/11 Commission concludes

478
00:26:44,845 --> 00:26:48,940
that Dick Cheney did not reach the PEOC until 9:58,

479
00:26:48,940 --> 00:26:51,166
more than half an hour later.

480
00:26:53,996 --> 00:26:55,972
The Secret Service claims that it has no record

481
00:26:55,972 --> 00:26:58,458
of when Dick Cheney entered the bunker.

482
00:27:00,211 --> 00:27:02,323
What were the orders?

483
00:27:02,323 --> 00:27:04,367
If they were to intercept Flight 77,

484
00:27:04,367 --> 00:27:06,829
why was it allowed to strike the Pentagon?

485
00:27:08,307 --> 00:27:09,291
- [Voiceover] Let's go to the trade tower again

486
00:27:09,291 --> 00:27:13,527
because John we now have a, what do we have?

487
00:27:13,527 --> 00:27:14,704
We don't,

488
00:27:14,704 --> 00:27:17,169
- [Voiceover] Wow, it looks like a new plume,

489
00:27:17,169 --> 00:27:19,475
a new large plume of smoke.

490
00:27:20,685 --> 00:27:21,923
- [Voiceover] That's the scene at this moment

491
00:27:21,923 --> 00:27:23,118
at the World Trade Center.

492
00:27:23,118 --> 00:27:25,270
Stan Dahler from ABC's Good Morning America

493
00:27:25,270 --> 00:27:27,998
is down in the general vicinity.

494
00:27:27,998 --> 00:27:29,935
Dan, can you tell us what has just happened?

495
00:27:29,935 --> 00:27:31,655
- [Voiceover] Yes Peter, it's Don Dahler down here.

496
00:27:31,655 --> 00:27:34,491
I'm at four blocks north of the World Trade Center.

497
00:27:34,491 --> 00:27:36,199
The second building that was hit by the plane

498
00:27:36,199 --> 00:27:38,395
has just completely collapsed.

499
00:27:38,395 --> 00:27:40,743
The entire building has just collapsed,

500
00:27:40,743 --> 00:27:43,150
as if a demolition team set off,

501
00:27:43,150 --> 00:27:45,902
when you see the old demolitions of the old buildings,

502
00:27:45,902 --> 00:27:47,164
it's fallen down on itself

503
00:27:47,164 --> 00:27:49,315
and it is not there anymore.

504
00:27:49,315 --> 00:27:50,252
- [Voiceover] Generally speaking,

505
00:27:50,252 --> 00:27:53,234
for a building to collapse in on itself like that,

506
00:27:53,234 --> 00:27:54,494
it would seem to indicate

507
00:27:54,494 --> 00:27:56,562
^that there could have been an explosion,

508
00:27:56,562 --> 00:27:58,136
^a bomb planted on the ground

509
00:27:58,136 --> 00:28:01,256
^that would make the building collapse within itself.

510
00:28:02,190 --> 00:28:03,666
^- [Voiceover] 10 o'clock eastern time this morning,

511
00:28:03,666 --> 00:28:06,290
^just collapsing on itself.

512
00:28:06,290 --> 00:28:09,451
^This is the place where thousands of people worked.

513
00:28:09,451 --> 00:28:11,829
^We have no idea what caused this.

514
00:28:12,712 --> 00:28:13,489
^- [Voiceover] It almost looks like one

515
00:28:13,489 --> 00:28:16,200
^of those planned implosions.

516
00:28:16,200 --> 00:28:18,889
^- [Voiceover] If you wish to bring anybody who's ever

517
00:28:18,889 --> 00:28:21,508
^ watched a building being demolished on purpose

518
00:28:21,508 --> 00:28:22,848
^knows that if you're going to do this,

519
00:28:22,848 --> 00:28:26,255
^you have to get at the under infrastructure

520
00:28:26,255 --> 00:28:27,919
^of a building and bring it down.

521
00:28:27,919 --> 00:28:32,404
(ominous music)

522
00:28:33,740 --> 00:28:38,781
(heavy objects crash)

523
00:28:46,378 --> 00:28:48,371
- [Voiceover] Evacuating this building here guys,

524
00:28:48,371 --> 00:28:52,287
(drowned out by explosions).

525
00:28:52,287 --> 00:28:54,088
(phone rings)
- [Voiceover] Hello?

526
00:28:55,787 --> 00:28:57,778
(phone rings)
Hello?

527
00:28:59,420 --> 00:29:02,134
^- [Voiceover] At 9:59, New York City, New York.

528
00:29:03,334 --> 00:29:04,995
^The south tower of the World Trade Center

529
00:29:04,995 --> 00:29:08,918
^collapses to the ground in approximately 10 seconds.

530
00:29:10,447 --> 00:29:13,904
29 minutes later, the north tower follows suit.

531
00:29:13,904 --> 00:29:16,924
Collapsing in approximately 10 seconds.

532
00:29:18,363 --> 00:29:20,597
Later that evening, at 5:20 pm,

533
00:29:20,597 --> 00:29:22,389
World Trade Center Building 7,

534
00:29:22,389 --> 00:29:25,102
a 47 story skyscraper 300 feet

535
00:29:25,102 --> 00:29:28,252
from the north tower suddenly collapses.

536
00:29:29,325 --> 00:29:31,431
The official explanation was that falling debris

537
00:29:31,431 --> 00:29:33,365
from the north tower created a series

538
00:29:33,365 --> 00:29:36,241
of fatal fires inside the building.

539
00:29:38,293 --> 00:29:41,385
^The National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST,

540
00:29:41,385 --> 00:29:43,708
eventually concluded in August 2005

541
00:29:43,708 --> 00:29:46,185
that they found no evidence suggesting

542
00:29:46,185 --> 00:29:47,868
that the Twin Towers were brought down

543
00:29:47,868 --> 00:29:50,063
in a controlled demolition.

544
00:29:52,283 --> 00:29:54,075
It's funny they would name it, the report,

545
00:29:54,075 --> 00:29:56,467
On The Collapse of the Twin Towers,

546
00:29:56,467 --> 00:29:58,216
because the report does not explain

547
00:29:58,216 --> 00:30:01,350
how the Twin Towers actually collapsed.

548
00:30:01,350 --> 00:30:03,603
Claiming that it does not actually include

549
00:30:03,603 --> 00:30:05,952
the structural behavior of the tower

550
00:30:05,952 --> 00:30:09,983
after initiation was reached and collapse became inevitable.

551
00:30:12,324 --> 00:30:15,332
10,000 pages and not a single one

552
00:30:15,332 --> 00:30:17,380
to actually explain how the towers

553
00:30:17,380 --> 00:30:19,503
came down the way they did.

554
00:30:21,284 --> 00:30:24,300
NIST admitted in April 2007 that they are

555
00:30:24,300 --> 00:30:27,939
unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse.

556
00:30:29,166 --> 00:30:33,399
And also that they conducted no tests for explosive residue.

557
00:30:34,704 --> 00:30:37,403
Luckily, somebody has.

558
00:30:38,800 --> 00:30:43,412
- In June 2007, I was examining

559
00:30:43,412 --> 00:30:47,631
^a dust sample which I'd obtained from Jeanette McKinley.

560
00:30:47,631 --> 00:30:51,908
And what I found was a chip

561
00:30:51,908 --> 00:30:53,756
that looked like it might be a paint chip.

562
00:30:53,756 --> 00:30:57,258
I mean early on I was thinking, maybe not too interesting,

563
00:30:57,258 --> 00:31:00,733
but this chip was rather striking in its appearance.

564
00:31:00,733 --> 00:31:05,578
It had some, an orange-red color first of all.

565
00:31:05,578 --> 00:31:07,236
And then I found several of these,

566
00:31:07,236 --> 00:31:09,401
and they all had some gray material

567
00:31:09,401 --> 00:31:14,318
adhering to the side of the red material, so layered.

568
00:31:14,318 --> 00:31:16,045
Later we found multiple layers,

569
00:31:16,045 --> 00:31:20,117
but most of these chips have two layers, red, gray.

570
00:31:20,117 --> 00:31:22,842
And we looked at it with the electron microscope

571
00:31:22,842 --> 00:31:24,526
and then we used a system where

572
00:31:24,526 --> 00:31:27,083
we could determine the elements.

573
00:31:27,083 --> 00:31:29,150
What we found in the red material

574
00:31:29,150 --> 00:31:32,734
is a combination of aluminum and iron oxide.

575
00:31:32,734 --> 00:31:37,622
And these are the components of thermite.

576
00:31:37,622 --> 00:31:40,943
Of course now, we looked with an electron microscope,

577
00:31:40,943 --> 00:31:42,334
we looked deeper and deeper,

578
00:31:42,334 --> 00:31:44,816
a higher and higher magnification.

579
00:31:44,816 --> 00:31:49,040
We looked at this and these again are the ingredients,

580
00:31:49,040 --> 00:31:52,912
except for the carbon, and we found that,

581
00:31:52,912 --> 00:31:54,943
experimenters working with super-thermite,

582
00:31:54,943 --> 00:31:57,223
trying to beef it up, make if more explosive,

583
00:31:57,223 --> 00:32:01,766
tailoring it to different weapons, applications,

584
00:32:01,766 --> 00:32:04,242
they would have a silicon in there

585
00:32:04,242 --> 00:32:08,274
and an organic material, which means carbon.

586
00:32:08,274 --> 00:32:10,623
So a polymer, so that fit.

587
00:32:10,623 --> 00:32:11,750
Now, see that was surprising to me

588
00:32:11,750 --> 00:32:13,158
to see silicon and carbon.

589
00:32:13,158 --> 00:32:15,416
But then we find in the literature,

590
00:32:15,416 --> 00:32:18,271
that's what these guys are doing in the weapons labs,

591
00:32:18,271 --> 00:32:20,074
Livermore and Los Alamos.

592
00:32:21,275 --> 00:32:23,987
They're adding organic because

593
00:32:23,987 --> 00:32:25,759
that gives you a gas production.

594
00:32:25,759 --> 00:32:26,823
When the thermite goes off,

595
00:32:26,823 --> 00:32:28,743
now you also have gas production,

596
00:32:28,743 --> 00:32:33,266
which gives you the explosive force, for instance.

597
00:32:33,266 --> 00:32:34,823
I suggested that we take a sample

598
00:32:34,823 --> 00:32:38,399
of this red, gray chip material

599
00:32:38,399 --> 00:32:41,880
and run it through a very sensitive instrument

600
00:32:41,880 --> 00:32:44,735
called a differential scanning calorimeter.

601
00:32:44,735 --> 00:32:45,483
And he did that.

602
00:32:45,483 --> 00:32:48,039
What it does is you heat the temperature slowly

603
00:32:48,039 --> 00:32:51,688
and a material will react if it's going to.

604
00:32:52,671 --> 00:32:54,785
And when if it reacts and produces heat,

605
00:32:54,785 --> 00:32:57,110
you'll get a spike in your calorimeter.

606
00:32:57,110 --> 00:33:00,225
And then if it reacts quickly, it'll be a narrow spike.

607
00:33:00,225 --> 00:33:03,105
If it, say burns over a long period of time,

608
00:33:03,105 --> 00:33:05,429
you'll see a big, broad spike.

609
00:33:05,429 --> 00:33:07,969
What we found, what Dr. Farrer found first,

610
00:33:07,969 --> 00:33:11,091
and he was real excited when he told me (laughs) about this,

611
00:33:11,091 --> 00:33:12,366
he took one of these chips and he put it

612
00:33:12,366 --> 00:33:14,965
in the differential scanning calorimeter.

613
00:33:14,965 --> 00:33:17,433
And sure enough, it went off

614
00:33:17,433 --> 00:33:20,251
at right about 430 centigrade,

615
00:33:20,251 --> 00:33:23,229
but more importantly the peak was high,

616
00:33:23,229 --> 00:33:25,607
which means a lot of energy released,

617
00:33:26,468 --> 00:33:30,885
and narrow which means, in his terms, it blew up.

618
00:33:30,885 --> 00:33:34,488
You know, he said, "Man, this is it, this stuff blows up."

619
00:33:34,488 --> 00:33:36,019
It behaves just like nano.

620
00:33:36,019 --> 00:33:39,027
It has the ingredients of nano-thermite.

621
00:33:39,027 --> 00:33:42,448
We compared the traces that we got

622
00:33:42,448 --> 00:33:45,768
in this sophisticated calorimeter

623
00:33:45,768 --> 00:33:48,948
with traces obtained with known thermite,

624
00:33:48,948 --> 00:33:50,328
and these were published data,

625
00:33:50,328 --> 00:33:52,808
and our peak is actually narrower.

626
00:33:52,808 --> 00:33:56,908
I mean this stuff goes off very rapidly.

627
00:33:56,908 --> 00:34:00,269
And with more energy also than had been reported

628
00:34:00,269 --> 00:34:02,850
by these other researchers working

629
00:34:02,850 --> 00:34:05,125
with known nano-thermite.

630
00:34:06,372 --> 00:34:07,255
- [Voiceover] It also turns out

631
00:34:07,255 --> 00:34:10,435
that molten metal exceeding 2,000 degrees farenheit

632
00:34:10,435 --> 00:34:12,886
was discovered in the rubble of Ground Zero,

633
00:34:12,886 --> 00:34:15,889
underneath the Twin Towers and Building 7.

634
00:34:17,417 --> 00:34:20,739
Firefighters, emergency workers, police, officials,

635
00:34:20,739 --> 00:34:24,791
even Rudy Giuliani testified to these massive temperatures.

636
00:34:27,479 --> 00:34:30,721
Even after heavy rain on September 14th and 21st,

637
00:34:30,721 --> 00:34:33,281
a constant stream of fire retardants and water,

638
00:34:33,281 --> 00:34:36,072
described as creating a giant lake,

639
00:34:36,072 --> 00:34:40,603
these fires were not put out until December 13th, 2001.

640
00:34:40,603 --> 00:34:44,274
Making it the longest burning structural fire in history.

641
00:34:47,304 --> 00:34:48,536
I know what you're thinking.

642
00:34:49,404 --> 00:34:52,326
If explosives or incendiaries were in the building,

643
00:34:52,326 --> 00:34:55,516
how would they get in there without anyone noticing?

644
00:34:57,086 --> 00:34:59,792
A December 2000 assessment of the World Trade Center

645
00:34:59,792 --> 00:35:01,552
recommended immediate renovation work

646
00:35:01,552 --> 00:35:03,132
on the steel columns contained

647
00:35:03,132 --> 00:35:06,202
within elevator shafts of both twin towers.

648
00:35:07,272 --> 00:35:09,052
Turner Construction, a company located

649
00:35:09,052 --> 00:35:11,012
on the 38th floor of the north tower

650
00:35:11,012 --> 00:35:13,192
was selected to do the job.

651
00:35:13,192 --> 00:35:16,372
Turner's CEO at the time was Tom Leppert,

652
00:35:16,372 --> 00:35:18,832
who had personal ties to George W. Bush

653
00:35:18,832 --> 00:35:20,532
and Carlos Gutierrez,

654
00:35:20,532 --> 00:35:23,232
Secretary of the Department of Commerce.

655
00:35:23,232 --> 00:35:26,092
^The Department of Commerce is in charge of NIST,

656
00:35:26,092 --> 00:35:29,062
^an agency that may sound familiar.

657
00:35:30,162 --> 00:35:32,712
Turner Construction also did fire proofing work

658
00:35:32,712 --> 00:35:37,182
on the very floors that were struck by Flights 11 and 175.

659
00:35:38,952 --> 00:35:40,752
But, of course, all documents

660
00:35:40,752 --> 00:35:41,932
pertaining to Turner's work

661
00:35:41,932 --> 00:35:45,402
on the Twin Towers were destroyed on 9/11.

662
00:35:47,212 --> 00:35:50,132
In addition, President Bush's brother, Marvin,

663
00:35:50,132 --> 00:35:52,132
was on the board of directors at Securacom

664
00:35:52,132 --> 00:35:56,232
from 1993 until fiscal year 2000.

665
00:35:56,232 --> 00:35:58,972
Securacom, later known as Stratesec,

666
00:35:58,972 --> 00:36:00,772
was an electronic security company

667
00:36:00,772 --> 00:36:03,112
backed by Kuwait-American Corporation,

668
00:36:03,112 --> 00:36:05,772
which provided security for United Airlines,

669
00:36:05,772 --> 00:36:07,672
Dulles International Airport,

670
00:36:07,672 --> 00:36:10,852
and from the early 1990s up to 9/11,

671
00:36:10,852 --> 00:36:12,942
the World Trade Center.

672
00:36:15,892 --> 00:36:17,472
According to the Port Authority,

673
00:36:17,472 --> 00:36:19,992
there are no records pertaining to the work

674
00:36:19,992 --> 00:36:23,342
that the company performed on the World Trade Center.

675
00:36:25,452 --> 00:36:28,872
So, a company with ties to the government agency

676
00:36:28,872 --> 00:36:31,472
that eventually investigated the collapse,

677
00:36:31,472 --> 00:36:33,712
was responsible for doing renovation work

678
00:36:33,712 --> 00:36:35,612
inside the Twin Towers.

679
00:36:35,612 --> 00:36:37,112
And the building security was run

680
00:36:37,112 --> 00:36:41,212
by a company with family ties to President Bush.

681
00:36:41,212 --> 00:36:42,962
And we have no records to prove

682
00:36:42,962 --> 00:36:45,102
what they did inside the buildings.

683
00:36:46,152 --> 00:36:48,002
Nothing suspicious here.

684
00:36:50,292 --> 00:36:52,172
If only we could have examined the steel

685
00:36:52,172 --> 00:36:54,742
from the World Trade Center.

686
00:36:54,742 --> 00:36:56,392
Unfortunately, the debris was almost

687
00:36:56,392 --> 00:36:58,272
immediately shipped overseas,

688
00:36:58,272 --> 00:37:00,422
being sold to the lowest bidder.

689
00:37:01,462 --> 00:37:03,012
This is destruction and removal

690
00:37:03,012 --> 00:37:05,056
of evidence from a crime scene.

691
00:37:06,391 --> 00:37:07,602
Family members and engineers

692
00:37:07,602 --> 00:37:09,522
were outraged at the decision,

693
00:37:09,522 --> 00:37:13,207
and demanded that the steel be preserved for investigation.

694
00:37:13,207 --> 00:37:15,703
Bill Manning, of Fire Engineering Magazine,

695
00:37:15,703 --> 00:37:18,019
publicly labeled the clean up at Ground Zero,

696
00:37:18,019 --> 00:37:20,343
"a half-baked farce."

697
00:37:21,411 --> 00:37:22,888
Yet the operation continued until

698
00:37:22,888 --> 00:37:27,383
the site was officially clear on May 30th, 2002.

699
00:37:29,416 --> 00:37:32,307
Regardless of how it was done, or who was responsible,

700
00:37:32,307 --> 00:37:36,186
what happened to the Twin Towers seems obvious enough.

701
00:37:36,186 --> 00:37:38,595
They were brought down in a highly engineered,

702
00:37:38,595 --> 00:37:41,603
unconventional, controlled demolition.

703
00:37:41,603 --> 00:37:44,207
It was a psychological attack on the American people,

704
00:37:44,207 --> 00:37:47,454
and it was pulled off with military precision.

705
00:37:48,375 --> 00:37:52,638
(birds chirping)

706
00:37:57,650 --> 00:38:03,153
(aircraft roars through air)

707
00:38:03,153 --> 00:38:06,692
(explosive crash)

708
00:38:06,692 --> 00:38:08,192
(birds chirp)
(flames crackle)

709
00:38:09,479 --> 00:38:13,065
^10:03 am, Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

710
00:38:13,065 --> 00:38:15,217
^United Airlines Flight 93 allegedly

711
00:38:15,217 --> 00:38:19,569
^crashes into an abandoned strip mine at 580 miles per hour.

712
00:38:19,569 --> 00:38:22,131
^20 minutes flying time from Washington, D.C.

713
00:38:23,261 --> 00:38:26,734
Speculation ran rampant that the plane had been shot down.

714
00:38:29,576 --> 00:38:32,564
First, the story was that passengers overtook the plane,

715
00:38:32,564 --> 00:38:36,021
and sacrificed themselves to prevent further casualties.

716
00:38:39,220 --> 00:38:40,976
The 9/11 Commission eventually concluded

717
00:38:40,976 --> 00:38:44,947
that hijacker Ziad Jarrah crashed the plane into the ground.

718
00:38:47,361 --> 00:38:48,769
They also claimed that the military

719
00:38:48,769 --> 00:38:52,333
did not know about Flight 93 until 10:07 am,

720
00:38:52,333 --> 00:38:55,114
four minutes after it had allegedly crashed.

721
00:38:56,225 --> 00:38:59,354
So, what trace was left of Flight 93?

722
00:39:01,354 --> 00:39:03,904
As for the crash site itself,

723
00:39:03,904 --> 00:39:05,607
from the Somerset County Coroner,

724
00:39:05,607 --> 00:39:07,143
to the mayor of Shanksville,

725
00:39:07,143 --> 00:39:09,108
almost every eyewitness would remark

726
00:39:09,108 --> 00:39:12,096
how little of the plane and its passengers

727
00:39:12,096 --> 00:39:14,442
remained at the actual crash site.

728
00:39:16,411 --> 00:39:18,248
- [Voiceover] We have rescue vehicles that came in

729
00:39:18,248 --> 00:39:20,463
earlier in the day and they have turned up nothing.

730
00:39:20,463 --> 00:39:23,391
No one believed to be alive from this crash,

731
00:39:23,391 --> 00:39:24,361
within the last hour.

732
00:39:24,361 --> 00:39:26,813
I want to get quickly to Chris Kanicki.

733
00:39:26,813 --> 00:39:29,097
He's a photographer with the Pittsburgh affiliate,

734
00:39:29,097 --> 00:39:31,081
a Fox affiliate, he was back there

735
00:39:31,081 --> 00:39:32,169
just a couple minutes ago.

736
00:39:32,169 --> 00:39:34,044
And Chris, I've seen the pictures.

737
00:39:34,044 --> 00:39:36,009
It looks like there's nothing there,

738
00:39:36,009 --> 00:39:37,436
except for a hole in the ground.

739
00:39:37,436 --> 00:39:38,505
- Basically that's right.

740
00:39:38,505 --> 00:39:41,024
The only thing you can see from where we were

741
00:39:41,024 --> 00:39:44,444
was a big gouge in the earth and some broken trees.

742
00:39:44,444 --> 00:39:45,941
^We could see some people working,

743
00:39:45,941 --> 00:39:47,496
^walking around in the area,

744
00:39:47,496 --> 00:39:50,440
^but from where we could see there wasn't much left.

745
00:39:50,440 --> 00:39:52,104
^- Any large pieces of debris at all?

746
00:39:52,104 --> 00:39:53,532
^- No, there was nothing.

747
00:39:53,532 --> 00:39:54,644
^Nothing that you could distinguish

748
00:39:54,644 --> 00:39:56,540
^that a plane had crashed there.

749
00:39:56,540 --> 00:39:58,012
^- [Voiceover] Smoke, fire?

750
00:39:58,012 --> 00:39:59,676
^- [Voiceover] Nothing, it was absolutely quiet.

751
00:39:59,676 --> 00:40:02,472
^It was actually very quiet.

752
00:40:02,472 --> 00:40:03,944
^Just a couple of people walking around.

753
00:40:03,944 --> 00:40:06,120
^They looked like part of the NTSB crew,

754
00:40:06,120 --> 00:40:08,084
^walking around, looking at the pieces.

755
00:40:08,084 --> 00:40:10,364
^- [Voiceover] How big would you say that hole was?

756
00:40:10,364 --> 00:40:11,324
^- [Voiceover] From my estimates,

757
00:40:11,324 --> 00:40:15,584
^I would guess it was probably about 20 to 15 feet long,

758
00:40:15,584 --> 00:40:18,313
^and probably about 10 feet wide.

759
00:40:18,313 --> 00:40:19,568
^- [Voiceover] What could you see on the ground,

760
00:40:19,568 --> 00:40:22,151
^if anything, other than dirt and ash?

761
00:40:22,151 --> 00:40:22,879
^- [Voiceover] You couldn't see anything.

762
00:40:22,879 --> 00:40:24,435
^You could just see dirt, ash,

763
00:40:24,435 --> 00:40:27,956
^and people walking around, broken trees.

764
00:40:29,523 --> 00:40:31,164
- [Voiceover] There is zero historical precedent

765
00:40:31,164 --> 00:40:33,435
for a large commercial airplane and its passengers

766
00:40:33,435 --> 00:40:35,887
completely disintegrating upon impact,

767
00:40:35,887 --> 00:40:39,116
regardless of speed, cause, or crash site.

768
00:40:41,262 --> 00:40:42,733
What really happened near Shanksville, Pennsylvania,

769
00:40:42,733 --> 00:40:45,869
on 9/11 remains a mystery.

770
00:40:45,869 --> 00:40:48,152
But one thing seems clear.

771
00:40:48,152 --> 00:40:51,397
A 757 did not crash intact into a field

772
00:40:51,397 --> 00:40:53,482
in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

773
00:40:59,594 --> 00:41:01,750
- [Voiceover] Did the side of the building come down?

774
00:41:01,750 --> 00:41:02,755
- [Voiceover] I don't know.

775
00:41:02,755 --> 00:41:04,522
Something fell, what'd you see?

776
00:41:04,522 --> 00:41:07,171
(sirens blaring)

777
00:41:07,171 --> 00:41:08,195
- [Voiceover] It was pretty clear at one point

778
00:41:08,195 --> 00:41:12,036
and then there's a whole bunch of smoke and glass.

779
00:41:12,036 --> 00:41:13,213
And I think we just got the last one,

780
00:41:13,213 --> 00:41:15,187
for this building right now.

781
00:41:15,187 --> 00:41:17,255
I think you should leave, everybody else is gone.

782
00:41:17,255 --> 00:41:18,151
- [Voiceover] Okay.

783
00:41:18,151 --> 00:41:19,963
- [Voiceover] I'll just make sure that

784
00:41:19,963 --> 00:41:21,079
there's nobody else coming downstairs.

785
00:41:21,079 --> 00:41:22,332
- [Voiceover] What do you think's happened?

786
00:41:23,709 --> 00:41:25,788
- [Voiceover] I hear the top of the building fell down.

787
00:41:27,290 --> 00:41:28,782
- [Voiceover] In 1984, construction began

788
00:41:28,782 --> 00:41:31,214
on World Trade Center Building 7,

789
00:41:31,214 --> 00:41:33,454
A 47 story office building 300 feet

790
00:41:33,454 --> 00:41:35,348
away from the north tower.

791
00:41:37,229 --> 00:41:39,962
It opened to the public in 1987 and housed offices

792
00:41:39,962 --> 00:41:43,200
for Department of Defense, Internal Revenue Service,

793
00:41:43,200 --> 00:41:46,074
and was also the Secret Service's largest field office.

794
00:41:47,814 --> 00:41:48,813
Building 7 was considered

795
00:41:48,813 --> 00:41:51,245
the Central Intelligence Agency's largest station

796
00:41:51,245 --> 00:41:52,968
outside of Washington, D.C.

797
00:41:54,400 --> 00:41:57,409
The details of the office's functions remain classified.

798
00:41:58,458 --> 00:41:59,457
The Securities and Exchange Commission

799
00:41:59,457 --> 00:42:01,529
was also using the building to store

800
00:42:01,529 --> 00:42:05,197
three to 4,000 files related to their investigations.

801
00:42:06,422 --> 00:42:07,487
And of course they have no record

802
00:42:07,487 --> 00:42:09,611
of what those files were.

803
00:42:11,876 --> 00:42:13,521
On June 8th, 1999,

804
00:42:13,521 --> 00:42:14,609
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's

805
00:42:14,609 --> 00:42:17,188
Office of Emergency Management Command Center,

806
00:42:17,188 --> 00:42:19,039
on the 23rd floor is open.

807
00:42:20,345 --> 00:42:21,625
- [Voiceover] The new facility is located

808
00:42:21,625 --> 00:42:22,949
in downtown Manhattan,

809
00:42:22,949 --> 00:42:26,189
across the street from the World Trade Center's twin towers.

810
00:42:26,189 --> 00:42:27,981
The Command Center on the 23rd floor

811
00:42:27,981 --> 00:42:30,008
is bullet proof and bomb resistant,

812
00:42:30,008 --> 00:42:32,781
with its own air supply and generators.

813
00:42:32,781 --> 00:42:34,125
It's linked to city airports,

814
00:42:34,125 --> 00:42:36,709
the Coast Guard, and the Pentagon.

815
00:42:36,709 --> 00:42:38,541
Computers will soon have detailed blueprints

816
00:42:38,541 --> 00:42:40,933
of every major building in New York City,

817
00:42:40,933 --> 00:42:43,320
as well as evacuation routes.

818
00:42:43,320 --> 00:42:45,944
Hurricanes and heat waves would be handled here,

819
00:42:45,944 --> 00:42:48,205
as well as terrorist attacks.

820
00:42:48,205 --> 00:42:49,336
Though New York officials say

821
00:42:49,336 --> 00:42:51,307
their facility is not impenetrable,

822
00:42:51,307 --> 00:42:52,843
they're confident it could handle

823
00:42:52,843 --> 00:42:55,860
even the worst crisis imaginable.

824
00:42:55,860 --> 00:42:59,076
Deborah Thayer for CNN, New York.

825
00:43:00,383 --> 00:43:02,218
- [Voiceover] Following the collapse of the north tower,

826
00:43:02,218 --> 00:43:03,582
almost all of the surrounding

827
00:43:03,582 --> 00:43:06,977
World Trade Center buildings were completely destroyed.

828
00:43:06,977 --> 00:43:09,181
But the structures remained standing.

829
00:43:10,283 --> 00:43:12,131
Building 3, a 22 story building

830
00:43:12,131 --> 00:43:13,859
directly below the Twin Towers,

831
00:43:13,859 --> 00:43:17,019
was split in half by the south tower's collapse.

832
00:43:17,019 --> 00:43:18,382
Although the building was severely crushed

833
00:43:18,382 --> 00:43:21,921
by falling debris, the structure remained standing.

834
00:43:23,351 --> 00:43:26,234
Building 4, a nine story building east of the south tower,

835
00:43:26,234 --> 00:43:27,925
was almost completely flattened,

836
00:43:27,925 --> 00:43:30,691
the remaining structure did not collapse.

837
00:43:32,877 --> 00:43:35,585
Building 5, a nine story building east of the north tower,

838
00:43:35,585 --> 00:43:38,571
suffered from severe fires and structural damage.

839
00:43:40,305 --> 00:43:41,989
Building 6, an eight story building between

840
00:43:41,989 --> 00:43:44,057
the north tower and Building 7,

841
00:43:44,057 --> 00:43:47,202
suffered a giant gouge in its roof and severe fires.

842
00:43:48,345 --> 00:43:52,180
Neither Building 5 or 6 suffered a collapse.

843
00:43:52,180 --> 00:43:53,652
Neither did the Deutsche Bank Building,

844
00:43:53,652 --> 00:43:54,972
which stands to this day,

845
00:43:54,972 --> 00:43:58,063
and is currently being demolished beam by beam.

846
00:44:01,332 --> 00:44:04,217
Neither did the Millenium Hotel across the street.

847
00:44:06,346 --> 00:44:08,659
Building 7, a 47 story office building,

848
00:44:08,659 --> 00:44:09,671
hundreds of feet away,

849
00:44:09,671 --> 00:44:11,847
burns controllably over a few floors

850
00:44:11,847 --> 00:44:14,343
and suffers structural damage to its south face

851
00:44:14,343 --> 00:44:16,603
before collapsing completely to the ground

852
00:44:16,603 --> 00:44:19,117
at near free fall speed.

853
00:44:21,318 --> 00:44:23,308
^- [Voiceover] Yeah, it's very strange that

854
00:44:23,308 --> 00:44:25,700
^that was not even hit by a jet,

855
00:44:25,700 --> 00:44:28,428
^and it falls very rapidly,

856
00:44:28,428 --> 00:44:32,173
^and essentially straight down into its footprint.

857
00:44:33,228 --> 00:44:34,463
- [Voiceover] Although the collapse of Building 7

858
00:44:34,463 --> 00:44:36,191
was clearly a phenomenon,

859
00:44:36,191 --> 00:44:38,265
and further investigation was needed,

860
00:44:38,265 --> 00:44:39,391
the building's steel was removed

861
00:44:39,391 --> 00:44:41,779
from the site and destroyed.

862
00:44:41,779 --> 00:44:45,203
No pieces were recovered from the debris for analysis.

863
00:44:47,391 --> 00:44:48,217
It's funny Steven would mention

864
00:44:48,217 --> 00:44:51,179
explosives and material being removed.

865
00:44:52,545 --> 00:44:54,129
Two eyewitnesses independently claimed

866
00:44:54,129 --> 00:44:56,493
to news channels on 9/11

867
00:44:56,493 --> 00:44:57,563
that they experienced an explosion

868
00:44:57,563 --> 00:45:00,949
inside the lower levels of Building 7.

869
00:45:02,011 --> 00:45:03,771
The first one is Michael Hess,

870
00:45:03,771 --> 00:45:07,262
who went on to UPN 9 News around 11:59 am.

871
00:45:08,511 --> 00:45:09,992
- [Voiceover] Oil refineries in Louisiana.

872
00:45:09,992 --> 00:45:11,212
- [Voiceover] And we have Frank Lucciardo

873
00:45:11,212 --> 00:45:12,373
back on the phone with us, Brenda,

874
00:45:12,373 --> 00:45:13,833
with some New York City officials.

875
00:45:13,833 --> 00:45:14,673
Frank, go ahead.

876
00:45:14,673 --> 00:45:16,233
- [Voiceover] That's right, I'm standing here right now.

877
00:45:16,233 --> 00:45:18,523
just on Broadway by City Hall with Michael Hess,

878
00:45:18,523 --> 00:45:20,113
who is the city's corporation counsel.

879
00:45:20,113 --> 00:45:21,274
^Mr. Hess, you were trapped

880
00:45:21,274 --> 00:45:23,098
^in I believe 7 World Trade Center.

881
00:45:23,098 --> 00:45:24,188
^Go ahead, sir.

882
00:45:24,188 --> 00:45:24,839
^- [Voiceover] Yes, I was.

883
00:45:24,839 --> 00:45:26,979
^I was up in the Emergency Management Center

884
00:45:26,979 --> 00:45:29,539
^on the 23rd floor and when all the power

885
00:45:29,539 --> 00:45:31,069
^went out in the building,

886
00:45:31,069 --> 00:45:33,700
^another gentleman and I walked down to the 8th floor,

887
00:45:33,700 --> 00:45:35,380
where there was an explosion,

888
00:45:35,380 --> 00:45:37,020
and we'd been trapped on the 8th floor,

889
00:45:37,020 --> 00:45:39,300
with smoke, thick smoke all around us

890
00:45:39,300 --> 00:45:41,000
for about an hour and a half.

891
00:45:41,000 --> 00:45:42,860
But the New York Fire Department,

892
00:45:42,860 --> 00:45:46,081
as terrific as they are, just came and got us out.

893
00:45:47,571 --> 00:45:49,042
- [Voiceover] And the second is Barry Jennings,

894
00:45:49,042 --> 00:45:52,072
who went on to ABC 7 shortly after noon.

895
00:45:53,542 --> 00:45:54,783
- We're gonna bring more of those to you now.

896
00:45:54,783 --> 00:45:56,183
Barry Jennings, you were on the 8th floor,

897
00:45:56,183 --> 00:45:58,183
you work for the city housing department.

898
00:45:58,183 --> 00:46:01,094
Explain to me the moment of impact.

899
00:46:01,094 --> 00:46:03,025
- Well me and Mr. Hess, the corporation counsel,

900
00:46:03,025 --> 00:46:04,045
were on the 23rd floor.

901
00:46:04,045 --> 00:46:05,745
I told him we got to get outta here.

902
00:46:05,745 --> 00:46:06,845
We started walking down the stairs.

903
00:46:06,845 --> 00:46:08,425
We made it to the 8th floor.

904
00:46:08,425 --> 00:46:11,986
Big explosion, blew us back into the 8th floor.

905
00:46:11,986 --> 00:46:13,306
And I turned to Hess, I said,

906
00:46:13,306 --> 00:46:14,606
"This is it, we're dead.

907
00:46:14,606 --> 00:46:16,046
"We're not gonna make it outta here."

908
00:46:16,046 --> 00:46:19,240
I took a fire extinguisher and I bust the window out.

909
00:46:20,316 --> 00:46:22,462
This gentleman here heard my cries for help.

910
00:46:23,432 --> 00:46:25,412
- [Voiceover] In conclusion,

911
00:46:25,412 --> 00:46:28,232
two men inside World Trade Center Building 7,

912
00:46:28,232 --> 00:46:30,952
a skyscraper that housed numerous government agencies,

913
00:46:30,952 --> 00:46:33,152
whose duties are unknown to the public,

914
00:46:33,152 --> 00:46:35,032
are almost killed by an explosion

915
00:46:35,032 --> 00:46:37,905
before either of the Twin Towers fell.

916
00:46:39,575 --> 00:46:40,915
Although it is damaged far less

917
00:46:40,915 --> 00:46:43,735
than any other surrounding World Trade Center buildings,

918
00:46:43,735 --> 00:46:47,435
at 5:20 pm it collapses into its own footprint,

919
00:46:47,435 --> 00:46:50,235
experiencing 105 feet of free fall

920
00:46:50,235 --> 00:46:53,145
and barely damaging surrounding structures.

921
00:46:54,575 --> 00:46:56,295
And the official government report,

922
00:46:56,295 --> 00:46:58,975
which takes almost seven years to write,

923
00:46:58,975 --> 00:47:01,589
says it was all due to fire.

924
00:47:02,359 --> 00:47:07,299
(keyboard keys clicking)
(heartbeats pulsate)

925
00:47:23,340 --> 00:47:26,530
So, where do we go from here?

926
00:47:28,560 --> 00:47:30,180
Your reaction to this will be either

927
00:47:30,180 --> 00:47:33,160
an emotional one or a logical one.

928
00:47:33,160 --> 00:47:35,610
You will deny that these things are possible,

929
00:47:35,610 --> 00:47:37,101
and insist that this information

930
00:47:37,101 --> 00:47:39,592
is ridiculous and go about your life,

931
00:47:40,621 --> 00:47:44,002
or you will acknowledge a number

932
00:47:44,002 --> 00:47:45,782
of serious, glaring issues

933
00:47:45,782 --> 00:47:48,162
with the United State's story of 9/11

934
00:47:48,162 --> 00:47:50,162
and do your part to further a new

935
00:47:50,162 --> 00:47:53,192
criminal investigation into the day's events.

936
00:47:56,122 --> 00:47:58,342
How long will the American public or the world

937
00:47:58,342 --> 00:48:01,195
wait for the truth about September 11th?

938
00:48:02,645 --> 00:48:04,045
How much louder will the family members

939
00:48:04,045 --> 00:48:06,835
and survivors have to scream for answers?

940
00:48:07,845 --> 00:48:10,307
September 11th was not just a terrible tragedy

941
00:48:10,307 --> 00:48:13,707
that took the lives of thousands of innocent people.

942
00:48:13,707 --> 00:48:15,427
It was an American coup,

943
00:48:15,427 --> 00:48:17,967
a violent and aggressive seizure of power,

944
00:48:17,967 --> 00:48:21,398
and a transformation of both foreign and domestic policy.

945
00:48:22,168 --> 00:48:24,488
The slaughter of civilians in broad daylight

946
00:48:24,488 --> 00:48:27,229
as a means of promoting an agenda.

947
00:48:27,229 --> 00:48:29,539
This is not a new concept.

948
00:48:30,629 --> 00:48:32,489
- The thing that I resent the most

949
00:48:32,489 --> 00:48:37,180
about what happened on 9/11 was the psychological,

950
00:48:38,090 --> 00:48:40,871
it was a deliberate psychological

951
00:48:40,871 --> 00:48:44,151
^manipulation of our minds.

952
00:48:44,151 --> 00:48:46,391
^In a very negative way.

953
00:48:46,391 --> 00:48:51,381
^And I really suffered a lot emotionally, mentally.

954
00:48:52,072 --> 00:48:54,816
There were obvious casualties.

955
00:48:54,816 --> 00:48:58,156
The people that died, the people that were injured.

956
00:48:58,156 --> 00:49:00,576
The rescue people they were injured,

957
00:49:00,576 --> 00:49:01,976
but what they don't realize

958
00:49:01,976 --> 00:49:05,276
is that every single person was injured.

959
00:49:05,276 --> 00:49:08,236
This is about everybody, every single person,

960
00:49:08,236 --> 00:49:10,816
because we were all exposed,

961
00:49:10,816 --> 00:49:14,796
by way of television to the psychological operation

962
00:49:14,796 --> 00:49:17,836
designed to terrorize us,

963
00:49:17,836 --> 00:49:22,456
designed to plant that feeling of fear so far in us

964
00:49:22,456 --> 00:49:24,959
that you're never gonna lose it.

965
00:49:24,959 --> 00:49:26,619
^The truth of the matter is that

966
00:49:26,619 --> 00:49:29,699
^ the official story is full of holes.

967
00:49:29,699 --> 00:49:32,079
^And we have shown the weaknesses and errors,

968
00:49:32,079 --> 00:49:35,250
^ and oversights, and the cover-up.

969
00:49:36,639 --> 00:49:38,801
Let me go back to Mahatma Gandhi.

970
00:49:38,801 --> 00:49:40,461
He made a very interesting statement

971
00:49:40,461 --> 00:49:42,781
that's meant a lot to me.

972
00:49:42,781 --> 00:49:45,401
There have been throughout history, Earth's history,

973
00:49:45,401 --> 00:49:48,321
there have been tyrants, there have been empires.

974
00:49:48,321 --> 00:49:51,861
And these tyrants tend to squash information

975
00:49:51,861 --> 00:49:54,281
and suppress it and cover it up.

976
00:49:54,281 --> 00:49:58,601
Data that would be incriminating or dangerous to them.

977
00:49:58,601 --> 00:50:01,323
The way of truth and love, that's the way he put it,

978
00:50:01,323 --> 00:50:04,343
the way of truth and love always wins.

979
00:50:04,343 --> 00:50:06,443
These tyrants are always exposed.

980
00:50:06,443 --> 00:50:08,643
The truth always gets out.

981
00:50:08,643 --> 00:50:11,613
He said, think of it, always.

982
00:50:13,743 --> 00:50:17,154
- [Voiceover] America was hijacked on September 11th, 2001.

983
00:50:18,403 --> 00:50:20,824
Not by Osama Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda network

984
00:50:20,824 --> 00:50:24,324
with box cutters, directed from a cave in Afghanistan,

985
00:50:26,004 --> 00:50:28,686
but by a group of tyrants ready and willing

986
00:50:28,686 --> 00:50:30,206
to do whatever is necessary

987
00:50:30,206 --> 00:50:33,838
to keep their stranglehold on the United States of America.

988
00:50:35,148 --> 00:50:37,770
(heartbeats pulsate)
A group beyond any one man

989
00:50:37,770 --> 00:50:40,202
or any one administration.

990
00:50:43,254 --> 00:50:45,974
Until there is a new investigation into the events,

991
00:50:45,974 --> 00:50:47,648
we will not go away.

992
00:50:48,998 --> 00:50:50,962
We will not be silent.

993
00:50:50,962 --> 00:50:55,102
(instrumental music)

994
00:50:56,203 --> 00:50:57,555
Ask questions.

995
00:50:58,865 --> 00:51:00,535
Demand answers.

996

997
00:51:02,988 --> 00:51:04,688
