Video of a BBC News broadcast from the World Trade Centerarea on 9/11 has surfaced revealing that the BBC reportedthe collapse of Building 7 approximately 23 minutes beforeit actually went down. The reporter is seen in the videoapparently reading a teleprompter reporting the collapsewhile the building is still standing in the backgroundbehind her.
The BBC has claimed that it lost all of the video of itsreportage on 9/11, but a copy of the report has been playedon a British television program and is now posted on theinternet. As can be seen in our full report, dozens of prominentUS officials are now questioning the 9/11 story.
BBC News Editor Richard Porter has stated on his BBC Newsblog that”We didn’t get told in advance that buildings were going tofall down. We didn’t receive press releases or scripts inadvance of events happening.” He has also stated that thereporter involved, Jane Standley, both “has the eventsseared on her mind” and “doesn’t remember minute-by-minutewhat she said.”
However, what she said and when she did so is now a matterof public recorddespite the fact that, according to Mr. Porter’s claim, “weno longer have the original tapes of our 9/11 coverage.”
The report in question begins approximately 10 minutes intothe BBC video. To see it,click here.
It is difficult to understand how a news organization couldhave made a mistake such as this, unless a pre-arrangedscript was read at the wrong time. The collapse was simplyignored by the 9/11 commission. It has been separatelyattributed to a subsurface fire. Certainly, it was not inany way anticipated.
The media, in general, tries to scoff at the idea that theevents of 9/11 have not been properly investigated, butnumerous present and former US government officials are notscoffing.
Senator Max Cleland – Former member of the 9/11 Commission,resigned in December 2003 “I, as a member of the [9/11]Commission, cannot look any American in the eye… It is anational scandal… this White House wants to cover [9/11] up.”
Senator Mark Dayton – Member, Senate Committee on ArmedServices and Homeland Security “[NORAD] lied to the Americanpeople, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11Commission…the most gross incompetence and dereliction ofresponsibility and negligence”
Congressman Ron Paul – Vice Chairman of the Oversight andInvestigations subcommittee “the [9/11] investigations thathave been done so far as more or less cover-up and no realexplanation”
Congressman Curt Weldon – “[9/11 Commission] there’ssomething very sinister going on here… somethingdesperately wrong… This involved what is right now thecovering up of information that led to the deaths of 3,000people”
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney – Member of the House ArmedServices Committee “the [9/11] Commission ran up againstobstruction by the administration and non-cooperation fromgovernment agencies… the errors and omissions immediatelyjumped out at us”
Director of the FBI, Louis Freeh – “[9/11 Commission]findings–raises serious challenges to the commission’scredibility and, if the facts prove out, might just renderthe commission historically insignificant itself”
Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury, Paul CraigRoberts, PhD – “Distinguished national and internationalscientists and scholars present massive evidence that the9/11 Commission Report is a hoax and that the 9/11″terrorist attack” has been manipulated to serve a hegemonicagenda in the Middle East… We know that it is strictlyimpossible for any building, much less steel columnedbuildings, to “pancake” at free fall speed. Therefore, it isa non-controversial fact that the official explanation ofthe collapse of the WTC buildings is false.”
Assistant Secretary of Housing, Catherine Austin Fitts -“Regarding 9/11 “The official story could not possibly havehappened… It’s not possible. It’s not operationallyfeasible… The Commission was a? whitewash. “
U.S. Army Intelligence officer, Federal Prosecutor, Officeof Special Investigations, U.S. Department of Justice, JohnLoftus ~ “The information provided by European intelligenceservices prior to 9/11 was so extensive that it is no longerpossible for either the CIA or FBI to assert a defence ofincompetence”
Foreign Service Officer, George Kenney – ” I cannot believe,much as I might like to, the standard account of 9/11″
Foreign Service Officer, J. Michael Springman – “Fifteen ofthe nineteen people who allegedly flew airplanes intobuildings in the United States got their visas from the sameCIA Consulate at Jeddah”
Deputy Attorney General, State of Pennsylvania, Philip J.Berg, Esquire – “The official story of what actually tookplace on 9/11 is a lie. “
Major General U.S. Army, Commanding General of U.S. ArmyIntelligence and Security Command, Albert Stubblebine ~ “Ilook at the hole in the Pentagon and I look at the size ofan airplane that was supposed to have hit the Pentagon. AndI said, ‘The plane does not fit in that hole’. So what didhit the Pentagon?”
Col. Ronald D. Ray, U.S. Marine Corps – Deputy AssistantSecretary of Defense,? Deputy Director of Field Operationsfor the U.S. Marine Corps Historical Center – “I’m astoundedthat the conspiracy theory advanced by the administrationcould in fact be true and the evidence does not seem tosuggest that’s accurate”
Col. Robert Bowman, U.S. Air Force, Director of AdvancedSpace Programs, PhD? Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering – “the official 9/11 story is impossible .. There is a cover up.. high levels of our government don’t want us to know whathappened .. highly placed individuals in the administration.. Dick Cheney .. the very kindest thing we can say aboutGeorge W Bush .. is high treason and conspiracy to commitmurder”
Col. George Nelson, U.S. Air Force, aircraft accidentinvestigator ~ “I never witnessed nor even heard of anaircraft loss, where the wreckage was accessible, thatprevented investigators from finding enough hard evidence topositively identify the make, model, and specificregistration number of the aircraft — and in most cases theprecise cause of the accident… The government alleges thatfour wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 humanbeings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has beenproduced in an attempt to positively identify any of thefour aircraft. On the contrary, it seems only that allpotential evidence was deliberately kept hidden from view ..with all the evidence readilty available at the pentagoncrash site, any unbiased rational investigator could onlyconclude that a Boeing 757 did not fly into the Pentagon as?alleged. Similarly, with all the evidence available at thePennsylvania crash site, it was most doubtful that apassenger airliner caused the obvious hole in the ground andcertainly not the Boeing 757 as alleged .. the most heinousconspiracy in our country’s history “
Major Douglas Rokke, PhD, U.S. Army ~ “Regarding the impactat the Pentagon on 9/11/2001 when you look at the damage, itwas obviously a missile.”
Capt. Russ Wittenberg, U.S. Air Force, fighter pilot,commercial pilot flying 707, 720, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767,and 777’s.? Had previously flown Flight 93, which impactedin Pennsylvania, and Flight 175, the second plane to hit theWTC ~”The government story they handed us about 9/11 istotal B.S. plain and simple…[Regarding Flight 77]”Theairplane could not have flown at those speeds which theysaid it did without going into what they call a high speedstall.? The airplane won’t go that fast if you start pullingthose high G maneuvers at those bank angles… The vehiclethat hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77″
Lt. Col. Karen U. Kwiatkowski, PhD, U.S. Air Force, Officeof the Secretary of Defense, staff of the Director of theNational Security Agency ~ “It is as a scientist that I havethe most trouble with the official government conspiracytheory, mainly because it does not satisfy the rules ofprobability or physics.? The collapses of the World TradeCenter buildings clearly violate the laws of probability andphysics…There was a dearth of visible debris on therelatively unmarked Pentagon, where I stood only minutesafter the impact. Beyond this strange absence of airlinerdebris, there was no sign of the kind of damage one wouldexpect from the impact of a large airliner… this visibleevidence or lack thereof may also have been apparent to theSec of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who in an unfortunate slipof the tongue referred to the aircraft that slamed into thePentagon as a ‘ missile ‘ … I saw nothing of significanceat the point of contact ~ no airplane metal or cargo debriswas blowing on the lawn in front of the damaged building assmoke billowed from within the Pentagon .. all of us staringat the Pentagon that morning were indeed looking for suchdebris, but what we expected was not evident .. the same istrue with regard to the damage we expected .. but I did notsee this kind of damage. Rather, the facade had a rathersmall hole, no larger than 20 feet in diameter. Althoughthis facade later collapsed, it remained standing for 30 0r40 minutes, with the roof remaining relatively straight ..The scene, in short, was not what I would have expected froma strike by a large jetliner. It was, however, exactly whatone would have expected if a missile had struck the Pentagon “
Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval PostgraduateSchool, Barbara Honegger, MS ~ “The US military, not alQaeda, had the sustained access weeks before 9/11 to alsoplant controlled demolition charges throughout thesuperstructures of WTC 1 and WTC 2, and in WTC 7, whichbrought down all three buildings on 9/11…A US militaryplane, not one piloted by al Qaeda, performed the highlyskilled, high speed 270 degree dive towards the Pentagonthat Air Traffic Controllers on 9/11 were sure was amilitary plane as they watched it on their screens. Only amilitary aircraft, not a civilian plane flown by al Qaeda,would have given off the “Friendly” signal needed to disablethe Pentagon’s anti aircraft missile batteries as itapproached the building…Only the US military, not alQaeda, had the ability to break all of its StandardOperating Procedures to paralyze its own emergency responsesystem”
Capt. Gregory M. Zeigler, PhD, U.S. Army, U.S. ArmyIntelligence Officer ~ “I knew from September 18, 2001, thatthe official story about 9/11 was false. … [A]nomaliespoured in rapidly: the hijackers’ names appearing in none ofthe published flight passenger lists, BBC reports of stolenidentities of the alleged hijackers or the alleged hijackersbeing found alive, the obvious demolitions of WTC 1 and2…and WTC7…not hit by an airplane…the lack ofidentifiable Boeing 757 wreckage at the Pentagon”
Capt. Eric H. May, U.S. Army, Intelligence officer ~ “I viewthe 9/11 event …as a matter that implies either…A)passive participation by the Bush White House through adeliberate stand-down or B) active execution of a plot byrogue elements of government, starting with the White Houseitself, in creating a spectacle of destruction that wouldlead the United States into an invasion of the Middle East”
Former Chairman, National Intelligence Estimates, CIA,responsible for preparing the President’s Daily Brief, U.S.Army Intelligence Officer, Raymond L. McGovern ~ ” I thinkat simplest terms, there’s a cover-up.? The 9/11 report is ajoke…just as Hitler in 1933 cynically exploited theburning of the parliament building, the Reichstag, this isexactly what our President did in exploiting 9/11…making awar of aggression on a country that he knew had nothing todo with 9/11…that’s certainly an impeachable offense…Butcompelling evidence for an even more disturbing conclusion:that the 9/11 attacks were themselves orchestrated by thisadministration precisely so they could be thus exploited.”
National Intelligence Officer and Director of the CIA’sOffice of Regional and Political Analysis, WilliamChristison ~? “there is persuasive evidence that the eventsof September did not unfold as the Bush administration andthe 9/11 Commission would have us believe.? An airlineralmost certainly did not hit The Pentagon. The North andSouth Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly didnot collapse and fall to earth because hijacked aircraft hitthem…this all was totally an inside job. I have sincedecided that….at least some elements in this US governmenthad contributed in some way or other to causing 9/11 tohappen or at least allowing it to happen… The reason thatthe two towers in New York actually collapsed and fell allthe way to the ground was controlled explosions rather thanjust being hit by two airplanes. All of the characteristicsof these demolitions show that they almost had to have beencontrolled explosions… I think you almost have to look atthe 9/11 Commission Report as a joke and not a serious pieceof analysis at all… It’s a monstrous crime”
?U.S. Marine Corps intelligence officer, case officer CIA.Robert David Steele ~ “I am forced to conclude that there issufficient evidence to indict (not necessarily convict) DickCheney, Karl Rove and others…This is, without question,the most important modern reference on state-sponsoredterrorism, and also the reference that most pointedlysuggests that select rogue elements within the USGovernment, most likely led by Dick Cheney with theassistance of George Tenet, Buzzy Kronguard, and othersclose to the Wall Street gangs, are the most guilty ofstate-sponsored terrorism…I’m absolutely certain that WTC7 was brought down by controlled demolition and that as faras I’m concerned means that this case has not been properlyinvestigated.? There’s no way that building could have comedown without controlled demolition”
CIA Case Officer, Specialist in the Middle East, Directorateof Operations, Awarded Career Intelligence Medal, RobertBaer “Regarding the opinion there was an aspect of’inside job’ to 9/11 within the U.S. government, there isthat possibility, the evidence points at it.”
Counter-terrorism expert in the Security Division of thefederal Aviation Administration. Team leader of the FAA’sRed (Terrorism) Team in the Federal Air Marshall program,Coast Guard officer, Bogdan Dzakovic ~ “At worst, I thinkthe 9/11 Commission Report is treasonous.”
Minister of Justice, West Germany, Horst Ehmke, PhD -“Terrorists could not have carried out such an operationwith four hijacked planes without the support of a secretservice.”
State Secretary, Federal Ministry of Defense, West Germany,Andreas von Buelow, PhD – “The official story is soinadequate and far-fetched that there must be anotherone…This is unthinkable, without years-long support fromsecret apparatuses of the state and industry.”
President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga ~ “[9/11] could not beaccomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flightsecurity personnel.”
General Leonid Ivashov, Chief of Staff, Russian armedforces, Ministry of Defense ~ “Only secret services andtheir current chiefs – or those retired but still havinginfluence inside the state organizations – have the abilityto plan, organize and conduct an operation [9/11] of suchmagnitude…Osama bin Laden and “Al Qaeda” cannot be theorganizers nor the performers of the September 11 attacks.They do not have the necessary organization, resources orleaders.”
Foreign Minister of Egypt, Mohamed Hassanein Heikal ~ “BinLaden does not have the capabilities for an operation [9/11]of this magnitude. When I hear Bush talking about al-Qaidaas if it was Nazi Germany or the communist party of theSoviet Union, I laugh because I know what is there. BinLaden has been under surveillance for years: every telephonecall was monitored and al-Qaida has been penetrated byAmerican intelligence, Pakistani intelligence, Saudiintelligence, Egyptian intelligence. They could not havekept secret an operation that required such a degree oforganisation and sophistication.”
Chief of Staff, Pakistani Army, General Mirza Aslam Beg ~”The information which is now coming up, goes to prove thatinvolvement by the ‘rogue elements’ of the U.S. military andintelligence organization is getting more obvious. Osama binLaden and al-Qaeda definitely do not have the knowhow andthe capability to launch such operations involving such highprecision coordination, based on information and expertise.”
European Parliament, Committee on Security and Defense,Giulietto Chiesa ~ regarding 9-11 “Billions of people weregiven only one explanation….which is entirelyfalse….everyone who dares to question it is treated as ifhe was a fool.”
French Army Intelligence and artillery officer, Col.Pierre-Henri Bunel, Expert in the effects of artilleryweapons and explosives ~ Regarding Department of Defensephotos of the Pentagon on 9/11 “Image of the impact onthe Pentagon is very instructive as to the nature of theexplosion. … It corresponds to a detonation of anexplosive with high energetic power.? The explosion does notcorrespond to a deflagration of kerosene…suggests a singleengine flying vehicle much smaller in size than anairliner…resembles the effects of anti-concrete hollowcharges that I have been able to observe on a number ofbattlefields…lead me therefore to think that thedetonation that struck the building was that of ahigh-powered hollow charge used to destroy hardenedbuildings and carried by an aerial vehicle, a missile.”
Safety Engineer and accident Analyst, National SafetyTechnology Authority, Finland, Heikki Kurttila, PhD ~”Conclusion: The observed collapse time of WTC 7 was 6.5seconds. That is only half a second longer than it wouldhave taken for the top of the building to fall to the groundin a vacuum, and half a second shorter than the falling timeof an apple when air resistance is taken into account. …The great speed of the collapse and the low value of theresistance factor strongly suggest controlled demolition.”
Counter-Terrorism Officer, MI5 (Britain), David Shayler -regarding 9-11 “The available evidence indicates that peoplein key positions in the FBI, the State Department, the CIAand so on were not loyal to the Constitution; that they sawan opportunity in plans laid down by genuine Islamicterrorists to carry out an operation that would shock theworld and would therefore justify U.S. adventurism in themiddle East, particularly in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
Chairman, 9/11 Commission, Thomas H. Kean, Former Governorof New Jersey – “FAA and NORAD officials advanced an accountof 9/11 that was untrue…We, to this day, don’t know whyNORAD told us what they told us…It was just so far fromthe truth.”
Vice Chairman, 9/11 Commission, Lee Hamilton, PermanentSelect Committee on Intelligence, Homeland Security AdvisoryCouncil ~ “we got started late; we had a very short timeframe…we did not have enough money…We had a lot ofpeople strongly opposed to what we did. We had a lot oftrouble getting access to documents and to people. … Sothere were all kinds of reasons we thought we were set up tofail”
9/11 Commissioner, Timothy J. Roemer, PhD, Permanent SelectCommittee on Intelligence – “that panel members sodistrusted testimony from Pentagon officials that theyreferred their concerns to the Pentagon’s inspectorgeneral…We were extremely frustrated with the falsestatements we were getting”
Senior Counsel, 9/11 Commission, John J. Farmer, Jr., FormerAttorney General, NJ, Former Commissioner of the StateCommission of Investigations ~ “Some staff members andcommissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that thePentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effortto mislead the commission and the public. I was shocked athow different the truth was from the way it wasdescribed…The tapes told a radically different story fromwhat had been told to us and the public for two years.”
