9/11 Unfinished Business

Dr. Robert M. Bowman

Head of Advanced Space Programs for DOD, Lt.Col for United States Air Force (ret.)

"Why weren't the hijacked airliners intercepted by jet fighters and shot down before they could fly into the WTC and Pentagon? Standard procedures call for any airliner that loses radio contact or goes off course to be intercepted. Four airliners were hijacked almost simultaneously, and it was obvious to air traffic controllers immediately. The transponders on the airliners were turned off. The hijackers were heard on the radio. And the four deviated drastically from their assigned courses. Was NORAD told? If not, why not? What did the air traffic controllers say, and to whom? Why did the FBI impound the tapes of those conversations? Why has the public never been told what was on them? Why weren't the congressional investigators told? The independent commission? Who is hiding what, and why? If it was just a matter of incompetence or somebody not doing their job, why hasn't anyone been fired or reprimanded? If someone ordered the standdown, who? and why? and why haven't they been charged with treason?"

Former employee of Underwriters Laboratories (the company that certified the steel in the WTC towers).

"We know that the steel components were certified to ASTM E119. The time temperature curves for this standard require the samples to be exposed to temperatures around 2000F for several hours. And as we all agree, the steel applied met those specifications. Additionally, I think we can all agree that even un-fireproofed steel will not melt until reaching red-hot temperatures of nearly 3000F (2). Why Dr. Brown would imply that 2000F would melt the high-grade steel used in those buildings makes no sense at all." -Kevin Ryan

WTC janitor who single-handedly rescued fifteen people

"When I heard the sound of the explosion, the floor beneath my feet vibrated, the walls started cracking and everything started shaking... Seconds after the first massive explosion below in the basement still rattled the floor, I hear another explosion from way above ... Although I was unaware at the time, this was the airplane hitting the tower, it occurred moments after the first explosion ... I know there were explosives placed below the trade center. I helped a man to safety who is living proof, living proof the government story is a lie and a cover-up. ... The skin was hanging off his hands and arms. His injuries couldn't have come from the airplane above, but only from a massive explosion below. I don't care what the government says, what scientists say. I saw a man burned terribly from a fire that was caused from an explosion below ... I have tried to tell my story to everybody, but nobody wants to listen." -William Rodriguez

Science and spirituality

I've often wondered whether there is a conflict between my atheism and love of science, and my spiritual side. I recently came across this quote from Carl Sagan, for whom I have long had a deep respect for. His wisdom triumphs yet again.
