Group presents evidence of explosive demolition of Twin Towers on 9/11 at national, local events

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A group of architects and engineers gathered in Washington D.C. on Thursday to discuss what they say is proof that the Twin Towers and Building 7 were brought down on September 11 by controlled demolition.

While that press conference was held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., activists were holding local press conferences in front of federal buildings all throughout the country, including Utica.

Blogger Andrew Steele said he questions the official story of 9-11.

Building Seven was not hit by a plane, collapsing eight hours after the first twin tower was struck.

"Building seven is the smoking gun," Steele said. "That building fell completely into its own footprint. You can watch on youtube yourself and use your own common sense. Even if you don't have a scientific background...if you have two eyes, you can see that fire alone did not bring down that building."

Architect Richard Gage also points to World Trade Center 7, a 47-story building that was not hit by an aircraft, yet collapsed in free-fall acceleration and in a manner consistent with a controlled implosion:

"Government investigators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have been forced to acknowledge the free-fall descent, an indicting fact, after being presented with analysis by AE911Truth petition signers."

Other reasons that AE911Truth supporters have uncovered in the course of examining the forensic evidence include:

* The Twin Towers suffered total destruction in 10 to 14 seconds in near free-fall accelerations which can only occur as a result of pre-set demolition explosives.

* More than 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes consistent with pre-set demolitions.

* 90,000 tons of concrete and metal decking were pulverized in mid-air, creating the signature dust clouds of controlled demolitions.

* A massive debris field 1,400 feet in diameter, along with the absence of "pancaked" floors, indicates a very explosive destruction of each tower.

* The presence of several tons of molten metal found in the debris is consistent with the extreme temperatures generated by the use of thermite - an incendiary used to cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.

* An international team of scientists found nano-thermitic composite material in World Trade Center dust samples, providing hard evidence of the presence of advanced energetic materials in the disaster debris.

"The official FEMA and NIST reports provide insufficient, contradictory, and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers' destruction," says Gage. "We are therefore calling for a grand jury investigation of NIST officials."

An AE911Truth petition calling for a new investigation was submitted this week to every government representative in Congress. The petition now contains over 1,270 architect/engineer signers - altogether over 10,000 around the world have signed the petition.
