9/11: The pyrotechnic and explosive link
by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey
An article published in a Journal of Chemical Physics, signed by no less than nine experts, analyzing the results of studies on particles taken from the 9/11 event at the World Trade Center in New York City in 2001 makes the most shocking conclusion: “highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material” was discovered.
Remember when the World Trade Center collapsed? Quite apart from the shock and awe experienced by most civilized people around the world at the sheer scale of the act of mass murder, quite apart from the indignation at seeing passenger aircraft flying into the buildings, were there not little subconscious question marks chalked up at the way the buildings fell, almost as if in an implosion?
Remember the Pentagon “aircraft” strike and all those questions raised as to how two electricity posts would have withstood a passenger aircraft, 200 plus tonnes of metal, hurtling into them and yet they remained upright, remember the fact that only one engine was found from the Boeing 757, except its parts did not match a 757 engine? So where was the second engine? Remember the absence of substantial aircraft parts found in photos of the crash site immediately after impact?
For over a decade now, in fact for almost twelve years, humankind has remembered 9/11 as one of the worst terrorist attacks in history, after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Yet due to circumstances arising immediately after 9/11, which justified an immediate attack against Afghanistan, and created a (wrong) public opinion basis for a global assault against America’s enemies based upon “security” first of the USA and its allies, and then through a sinister manipulation of fear, the security of people who the USA and its allies claimed they should protect, serious questions arise.
The torture and concentration camps set the backdrop for the stage, the horrific human rights abuses by US and NATO personnel, unpunished except for token cases, prove the sheer evil of the forces at play and the history of the ownership of the World Trade Center itself and the insurance sub-plot set the background to the story.
Now, we see through drones, aircraft can easily be tele-commanded and those of us who have actually sat in a cockpit know how little a pilot really has to do under normal flying circumstances after take-off – it is all automatic – in terms of flying the machine (we are not speaking about communications to ATC and so on).
And the document published in The Open Chemical Physics Journal 2009, volume2, title Active Thermal Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe, ISSN: 1874-4125, [DOI: 10.2174/1874412500902010007], authored by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen, makes for interesting reading.
In the introduction, the team states that it was intrigued by the fact that “the collapses of the three tallest WTC buildings were remarkable for their completeness, their near free-fall speed, their striking radial symmetry…” After a substantial study was made (and the work has been copied and pasted at several sites around the Internet so that it will not be hastily taken down and buried), the following conclusions are made:
Elemental iron was not found in pre-strike samples, but was present in the post-strike samples of materials, leading the scientists to conclude that the post-ignition materials contain the ingredients of thermite; the small size of iron oxide particles “qualifies the material to be characterized as nano-thermite or super-thermite” and is “very likely a form of super-thermite” due to the temperatures at which the materials react; the conclusion is that a thermite reaction took place;, then “We note that it is likely also an energetic material, in that the total energy release sometimes observed in DSC tests exceed the theoretical maximum energy of the classic thermite reaction”.
And now, the final statement: “Based on these observations, we conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and is a highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material”.
And here are my conclusions: This being the case, either the scientists writing and publishing this article are mad and are purposefully ruining their careers, which is highly improbable; the second hypothesis is that the entire publication is a hoax – it is not because the journal exists. One of the editors resigned after the publication of this particular article, claiming publication did not have his permission but the fact remains it is a journal which publishes works from recognized scientists. Finally, the scientists co-authoring the paper do apparently exist and are investigators.
Could we expect the United States of America to now launch a full, open and comprehensive investigation into what happened? However well-meaning Washington declares it is, the hearts and minds of humankind need acts and not words. The acts, since the year 2000, have written a horrific epitaph for Washington and a deep political grave for its leaders. What was that about “change”?
