  1. Lauren Roberts

  2. On September 11th , 2001 the United States was attacked. • The 9.11 attacks resulted in 2996 total deaths. • American Airline flights crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington Virginia, and into a field near Shanksville Pennsylvania.

  3. Two commercial passenger jet airliners were crashed into each of the twin towers.

  4. The first towers collapsed at 9:59 am, after burning for less than an hour. • Less than a half an hour later, the second tower collapsed. • But how were theyactually brought down?...

  5. Structural failure due to fire?

  6. Or Controlled Demolition.. • There is video evidence of explosions occurring beneath the plane crash site. Witnesses also claim hearing explosions. • The towers were brought down at almost nearly freefall speed. • Dust samples from the WTC contains un reacted thematic material in the form of bi-layered chips with red and gray layers. • This evidence suggests that the towers were brought down by a controlled demolition.

  7. Fire Damage • Credible, Reliable sources claim that there is no way that the structure failed due to fire. • The WTC was fireproofed and no building has been brought down by such a short fire. • It seems like the building was brought down from the bottom, not the top.

  8. Why was the evidence from 9.11 was shipped overseas and never examined?

  9. The Pentagon • And was it really a plane that hit the pentagon? • If so, why was there an exit hole?

  10. Statistics • Number of Americans who changed their 2001 holiday-travel plans from plane to train or car: 1.4 million • Estimated number of New Yorkers suffering from post-traumatic-stress disorder as a result of 9/11: 422,000 • Tons of debris removed from site: 1,506,124 • Days fires continued to burn after the attack: 99 • Jobs lost in New York owing to the attacks: 146,100 • Days the New York Stock Exchange was closed: 6

  11. A poll of 17 nations found that majorities in only nine of them believed that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States • In no country did a majority agree on another possible perpetrator, but in most countries significant minorities cited the US government itself and, in a few countries, Israel. • A variety of current and former high-level officials have recently warned that the current administration is attempting to gain as much power and control over the American public as possible, and is using fear to accomplish that goal • FBI agents, Time Magazine, MSNBC newsman Keith Olbermann and The Washington Post have all stated that the administration has issued terror alerts based on scant intelligence in order to rally people around the flag when the administration was suffering in the polls. This implies — as an initial matter only — that the administration will play fast and loose with the facts in order to instill fear for political purposes.
