Open Letter from Jimmy Walter, Founder & President of Reopen9/11.org:
Watch a video message from Mr. Walter
Dear Concerned and Questioning Americans,
Like everyone else, I watched the planes hit the World Trade towers and then saw them collapse. Like everyone else, I believed the impactfrom the planes and the ensuing fires caused the collapses.
Like everyone else, because of the attack I became concerned about terrorism. I started researching what was happening. I read the international press and internet news which had stories that never saw the light of day or were deeply buried or ridiculed in the US press. They clearly showed that Saddam Hussein did NOT have weapons of mass destruction, did NOT have poison factories, and, in fact, FOUGHT Al-Qaeda tooth and nail as an arch enemy. But what really scared me was that invading Iraq would swell the terrorist ranks, increase terrorism here and abroad, and leave us in a Vietnam Quagmire. It was obvious that tremendous deceptions were being perpetratedon us by our own government and the mainstream media. In January of 2003 when Colin Powell again lied to us and the UN (see press page), I became so alarmed that I ran full page ads in the New York Times, USAToday, and various other newspapers across the country. I was censored by the LA Times. I was ignored by everyone.
I shut up when the war started in order to support the troops. After "Mission Accomplished", I went around the country to protests. I met Eric Hufschmid who had written Painful Questions. I got his book and video, but never gave it the time of day-- At worst, I thought, 9/11 was a sin of omission where the administration allowed it to happen as an excuse for their world domination purposes. Until then, I had believed the administration's "conspiracy theory" that 19 screw-ups from Saudi Arabia who flunked out of flight school had attacked us. I did NOT believe that explosives were used to destroy the World Trade Towers!
About Six months later, a friend cajoled me into watching Eric's video, "Painful Deceptions." It was an epiphany. After watching the CNN and other main stream News videos of the alleged collapses, I knew explosives were used. Moreover, unlike most new things that get less good, less perfect as you know them better, this just got surer and surer, deeper and deeper.
I was further astounded by the books "The New Pearl Harbor, and Crossing the Rubicon, and even more so by the video The Great Conspiracy. I now know this is the ridiculous "conspiracy theory" which has been rubber stamped by the 9/11 Commission which, according to Harper's Magazine, Senator Mark Dayton, and others, is a "whitewash" full of errors, "lies", and omissions.
I will give free copies to fire stations, police stations, judges, prosecutors, and politicians (email:
). None of these books or videos are perfect. Some of the authors contest each others work.
Researchers I hired have confirmed the following. You be the judge. Unlike most new things that get less good, less perfect as you know them better, this has just got surer and surer, deeper and deeper. As they said in The Matrix, keep reading this site and see "how deep this rabbit hole goes". I really do feel like I took the red pill.
The WTC building collapsed at the free fall speed of gravity, 8.4 seconds (10 floors per second). "Free fall" speed means that the falling building pieces crushed concrete, sheared steel bolts, and broke welds yet fell just as fast as a rock dropped off the side of the building that hit nothing. Impossible without explosives. Each floor hit would have significantly slowed the fall!
The South Tower (Building #2) fell after 1 hour; the North Tower (Building #1) fell after 2 hours. The Meridian Plaza burned fiercely for 19 hours and never collapsed. The Madrid fire in 2005 burnt for 24 hours like a torch and never collapsed.
Yet Scientific American, October 2001 said "The WTC was probably one of the more resistant tall buildings..they just don't build them as tough as the World Trade Center"
"A steel building survived fires in experiments with extreme temperatures beyond the range possible with jet fuel."- Cardington fire tests
"The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time."- Federal Emergency Management Agency. Chapter 5, Page 31, May 2002
The investigation of the WTC "is a half-baked farce." - Fire Engineering Magazine. Jan 2002
All of the important evidence from the disaster was destroyed, illegally, and before the investigation was even concluded, some before it began! - Fire Engineering
$600,000 was spent investigating the WTC collapses vs. $40 million on Clinton's sex life. The entire 9/11 Commission only spent $15 million while all expenditures on Clinton's indiscretion exceed $65 million.
Building 7 at the WTC, 47 floors, steel, and constructed differently from the twin towers, fell at 5:30 but it was never hit by an airplane, had no significant fire!
The fires were not long enough (only 1-2 hours) to harm the steel.
Yet days later, there were "hot spots" in the building that still exceeded the maximum temperature possible from jet fuel - but not from explosives.
The gusting wind on the towers had at times been greater than the impact of the airliners. Neither tower was bent nor did they creak or groan at any time.
The concrete was encased in a steel framed pan yet clouds of finely pulverized concrete and steel beams came shooting out of the buildings for up to three times the width of the building at hundreds of miles per hour - only possible with explosives.
If the force of the falling building is strong enough to pulverize concrete then the bolts and rivets would have to hold beyond that force - and then give way. Yetthe force to pulverize concrete into fine powder is greater than the force that sheers or stretches steel bolts and rivets. It cannot be both ways.
Both impacts and fires in the Twin Towers did not hit the center of the buildings. That means that only two sides of the building were harmed at most and two sides were structurally sound. Building 7 had no impact or significant fires. Yet all three collapses are perfectly straight down. Only the tops of the Towers should have fallen over, not the entire building all straight down, just like a controlled demolition.
"I'm still to this day amazed that he [alleged pilot on Flight 77] could have flown into the Pentagon," according to the hijackers pilot instructor. "He could not fly at all." Yet, "The steep turn was so smooth, the sources say, it's clear there was no fight for control going on. And the complex maneuver suggests the hijackers had better flying skills than many investigators first believed."
NATIONAL COMMISSION ON TERRORIST ATTACKS UPON THE UNITED STATES, Public Hearing, Friday, May 23, 2003: Mr. Mineta: "There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, "The plane [Flight 77] is 50 miles out...30 miles... 10 miles out" - Cheney knew this plane was coming at Washington and the Pentagon and yet no planes had been scrambled to protect Washington after over 1 hour since the WTC was attacked. Even at 400 miles per hour, it takes over 7 minutes to travel 50 miles, more since the plane was at altitude. Cheney knew the plane was coming when it was even farther away since Mr. Mineta had not been present when Flight 77 was first reported to Mr. Cheney. They had known this flight was missing for over an hour after the first plane crashed into the North Tower. There should have been an umbrella of F-16 and other aircraft over Washington, DC. An F-16 fighter can travel 50 miles and destroy a target in less than 2 minutes. Moreover, pictures released by the Pentagon show anti-aircraft missiles firing at an aircraft much smaller than a 757. Everything failed! Incompetence, if not guilt. Read how the alleged hijackers used top secret information to find holes in our Radar Defenses.
NORAD successfully intercepted off course and suspected hijackings 100% of 67 times during the year prior to 9/11 (AP, 8/13/02), each time in under 20 minutes. An Air Force F-15 "scrambles" to 29,000 feet in 2.5 minutes, normally intercepting in 15 minutes. Yet on 9/11 they were four failures for over an hour each -- three after they knew the planes were high-jacked and intended mass murder. Please read, "Crossing the Rubicon", by Michael Ruppert, which indicts Richard Cheney for his involvement in the war games that diverted our interceptors from stopping the high-jacked airplanes. Contrast this to Condoleezza Rice's statement from her May 16, 2002 press briefing, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile". (See Fox TV broadcast plot 6 months earlier) "Condoleezza Rice was the top National Security official with President Bush at the July 2001 G-8 summit in on Genoa. This was where U.S. officials were warned that Islamic terrorists might attempt to crash an airliner into the summit, which prompted officials to close the airspace over Genoa and station anti-aircraft guns at the city's airport".
"On August 6, 2001, just over a month before 9/11 and during the "summer of threat", President Bush received a Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) at his Crawford, Texas ranch, entitled Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US The August 6th memo focused entirely on the possibility of terrorist attacks inside the US. In testimony before the 9/11 Commission, Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor to President Bush, stated to the 9/11 Commission that she and President Bush considered the August 6th PDB as just an historical document and commented that this was not considered a domestic warning. At this 9/11 hearing, Condoleezza Rice had taken an oath to tell the truth to the Commissioners. [Perjury!]
"Additionally, according to the 9/11 Commission report, chief White House expert on terrorism, Richard Clarke, sent Rice an urgent memo just days after she took office stressing the severity of the terrorist threat. She did not respond. Although the national security leadership met formally nearly 100 times in the months prior to the Sept. 11 attacks . . . terrorism was the topic during only two of those sessions. The first meeting that dealt with al Qaeda did not occur until 9/4/01." Read the 9/11 widows letter on "Kindasleazy" Rice. Rice lied that they did not anticipate hijackers using airplanes as weapons yet FEMA's cover image depicts just such an attack!
I am also appalled by the media. A Zogby Poll I commissioned reported that 66% of New Yorkers want the 9/11 investigation re-opened and 49% believe government VIP's knew ahead of time and did nothing to stop it. The New York Times thought it NOT "news fit to print". I had to pay for an advertisement to get it in the New York Times!
This book is very disturbing. One thing is for certain; the facts surrounding the multiple WTC building collapses and Pentagon attack prove our government is not telling us the whole truth. I shudder to think what this book seems to prove is true. Ask your friends who are experts on the topics covered. I am now convinced that it was not just an error of omission. It seems clear to me that someone executed a master of deception's plan and killed thousands of innocent people. Osama and Bush may just be patsies [people to take the blame].
It is my intention to amass enough petition signatures and influence enough people to force the reopening of the 911 Commission and a criminal investigation by the Attorney General of NY and the District Attorney of Manhattan into the mass murders that were perpetrated at the WTC. Please, PLEASE sign our online petition. Do it now. Please. Please call your Representative, Senators, and the President demanding our government answer these questions and explain the 9/11 Commission's omissions and lies.
Demand that your government answer these questions that the 9/11 commission ignored and lied about.
