911-Ch. Bollyn-The "Huge Bullet Hole" in the South Tower and Analysis of Missile Evidence


The "Huge Bullet Hole" in the South Tower and Analysis of Missile Evidence

Updated - April 17, 2011

This photograph from the Hugo Neu Schnitzer East (HNSE) scrapyard shows Professor Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl of U.C. Berkeley's school of engineering inspecting what he described as an interior column with what he wrote were "very clear signs of a large, round, and fast moving object entering the left side of the box and cutting a quarter of a circle hole in the column."  Astaneh-Asl called this bite out of the core column a "huge bullet hole." 

Was the hole in the column made by the depleted uranium tipped missile that made a bright white flash as it penetrated the tower wall?  What else besides a white-hot D.U. warhead could have had the energy to cut such a hole in a core column?

Did the column cause the deflection seen in the two smoking pieces of the D.U. missile seen flying out of the South Tower?  The white flaming object leaving black smoke appears to be the D.U. warhead.  Is this the real smoking gun? 
Dr. Astenah-Asl said that it appeared that this column came from the South Tower. Judging by the thickness of the steel, it could very well be from the impact level of the tower.  The fast moving round object that cut the hole appears to have had a diameter of about 3 or 4 feet (90-120 cm).  Was this hole cut by the depleted uranium-tipped missile that was seen coming out of the South Tower ahead of the explosion? (Source: Astaneh Final Report)

Glenda Cooper of The Washington Post wrote more about the mysterious "huge bullet hole" and other evidence of a "very fast" object that went through the tower like "a butter knife" discovered by Astaneh-Asl on October 6, 2001:
The girders and beams provide evidence that far from disintegrating on impact, the plane that hit the South Tower penetrated to the building's core. One beam from the outer part of the building is buckled and twisted but with a sharp grooved line running along it, which Astaneh-Asl believes was caused by the wing of the aircraft slicing through. "There is a very clear line here," he said today during a news conference. "It looks like a butter knife has gone through it and left a nice clear line. This can only happen if something very fast hits it."

Similar lines are on a column from the interior of the South Tower, which has what looks like a smooth bite taken out of two sides. On the first side (the side of impact) the hole is almost uniformly smooth from when the plane tore through. The second inner side is more ragged, from the plane encountering resistance from the metal.

"Before, no one knew what happened to the columns inside, in the elevator shaft and the stairwell," said Astaneh-Asl. "Now we know the plane went through and sheared off part of the columns and took a bite out of it, leaving what looks like a huge bullet hole. The bite we see is the curve of the engine or the fuselage." (But the radius of this hole is less than 2 feet! C.B.)

Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl

Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl from the University of California at Berkeley and graduate student Qiuhong Zhao went to New York City on a grant from the National Science Foundation to collect data on the mechanical and structural properties of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers, particulary steel affected by heat, fire and impact.
History Commons has a page documenting the statements of Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl about the steel debris removed from the World Trade Center.  I called Astaneh-Asl at his home on 5 April 2011 to ask about the hole he had expressed great interest in.  He told me that he had not saved the piece of steel, which he wrote "arose a lot of interest", and that he had simply allowed it to be "recycled".  Why would an engineer working on a grant from the National Science Foundation allow such an interesting piece of evidence to be simply destroyed without photographing and documenting it carefully?  This could very well be the "bullet hole" caused by the depleted uranium tipped missile that was seen hitting and exiting the South Tower.
Astaneh wanted to know what I thought had caused the collapse of the Twin Towers.  When I told him that I thought the towers had been demolished with explosives including Thermite and a nano-composite of thermite, he began to attack me saying that I was wasting my time and hurting the feelings of the victims' relatives.  When I asked him about Dr. Steven E. Jones' discovery of chips of nano-thermite in the dust of the towers, Astaneh dismissed it, saying that Jones is not an engineer. 
Astaneh then responded to my email request:
Dear Mr. Bollyn:  As I clearly stated in our phone conversation a few minutes ago, I am very disturbed by the people such as yourself , who are part of this "Conspiracy theorist" regarding World Trade Center collapse. These people have used my name and research results in totally incorrect way , and in completely opposite way of what the research results had indicated. By doing so, you and all others have implied that our research somehow support your totally incorrect theories.

I hereby officially notify you in writing that if you use my name or the results of our research in any publication implying that the data that we have collected on the WTC somehow supports or provides you with evidence in support of your totally base less conspiracy theories, I reserve the right to take any legal action necessary to protect my reputation as well as integrity of my research.

Let me state again that after 6 years of studying the collapse of World Trade Center, I have not found any evidence to support any of the claims of "conspiracy theorists".
In my opinion, and based on scientific facts, the only cause of collapse was the structural and fire damage to the towers that had many unusual features and were not designed according to the buildings codes, standards and the practice.

A. Astaneh, Professor
It should be noted that Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl and Ronald O. Hamburger of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (which does a lot of work for the U.S. military) were two of the first structural engineers interviewed on 9/11 about what caused the collapse of the Twin Towers. Hamburger joined SGH in 2002 from the EQE structural engineering division of ABS Consulting, a risk management consulting company, where he was Senior Vice President and Chief Structural Engineer. Hamburger previously worked for Bechtel as an Assistant Chief Civil/Structural Engineer.
Both Hamburger and Astaneh-Asl agreed that the towers collapsed due to fire.  Hamburger went on to play a key role in the FEMA 9/11 investigation of the World Trade Center.  One has to wonder why PBS chose to interview these two men to talk about the collapses and if their opinions had anything to do with their future work on the 9/11 investigation.

Here is part of their comments from what they said on September 11, 2001 on PBS Newshour about what they thought had caused the towers to collapse:

ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: Those twin towers, which were completed in 1973 were 110 stories tall, 1,360 feet. They were the tallest buildings in New York City, roughly 50,000 people work in them. They were designed to be a hub for international trade and were part of a seven-building complex, which was completed in 1988. In addition to the twin towers, one other of the seven buildings in the World Trade Center complex also collapsed late this afternoon.

For more on the buildings we turn now to two structural engineers, Ron Hamburger, chief structural engineer at UQE, an engineering firm, and Hassan Astaneh, professor of engineering at UC Berkeley who is helping develop guidelines for the American Institute for Steel Construction, guidelines that would help structures withstand terrorist attack. Ron Hamburger, you've seen the video and the plane hitting. You've seen the fires and the collapse. What do you think happened?

RON HAMBURGER: Well, incredible as it may seem, the buildings survived the aircraft attack. Both of them were able to stand for the better part of two hours after the crash. What they just were not able to survive was the incredibly intense fires that ensued from all of that burning jet fuel. Structural steel, these buildings were steel billings. Structural steel when it gets hot loses strength. The steel elements that held up the building where the crash occurred got hot from the fires at about the 90th floor. They were supporting 20 floors of building above it. And when they lost the ability to support that, all of that mass, like another building, came down on top of the rest of the structure like a pile hammer and just essentially drove the rest of the building into the ground.

ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: Now, we don't know for sure, do we, that, Mr. Astaneh... We don't know for sure that there wasn't some kind of a bomb. But you didn't think there had to be a bomb for this happen?

HASSAN ASTANEH: That's exactly case. We are not sure, of course, what was in those planes but the amount of fuel that came and was delivered to this building was enough, in my opinion, as I agree with Ron, that the cause of this collapse and tragedy was really what we call progress of collapse. What happened here was the initial impact did not cause much damage; it just ignited the fire. The fuel was supplied. The fire on almost four hours - and at that time the temperature of the columns - they have reached the critical level which is 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and when steel reaches that level of temperature, it loses its strength, and of course the upper floors, the weight of those upper floors completely collapsed on the lower part and hammered it down and collapsed it.
End of updated section; original article begins here:
This article began as a New Year's letter (in italics) to 9/11 researcher Dr. Steven E. Jones, which I decided to make an open letter:
Dear Professor Jones,
All the best wishes for 2011, which I hope will be a great year for 9/11 truth.
This morning, the first thing I did, even before getting out of my pajamas, was examine a photo that has bothered me for some time (as it sits on my desk). It is the attached photo (No. 0879 from the Here is New York website).

Photo 0879 from Here is New York website shows the view from the North of the plane striking South Tower.
What bothers me is the fact that the fireballs seem to be exploding much too quickly to be merely jet fuel. As you know, I am of the opinion that depleted uranium tipped missiles preceded the entry of each plane, by a few milliseconds of impact. This is apparently what caused the white flash seen as each plane impacted the tower. The depleted uranium warhead would have created a super-heated space inside the tower which would have detonated any pre-placed thermate charges on the floor (for example in the large "battery" racks in the computer room, which were "never turned on," according to a person who worked there) and ignited the dispersed jet fuel. The DU-tipped missile was the trigger of the spectacular fireballs witnessed by millions.
Both planes were guided to fly directly into secure computer rooms in which large amounts of thermate could have been concealed in phony battery arrays like this.  The white-hot penetrator of a depleted uranium warhead would have detonated the thermate, creating the spectacular fireballs and destroying the aircraft - and the evidence.
From my article "9/11 Planes Flew Directly into Secure Computer Rooms in Both Towers"

Then, suddenly, out of the blue, a former bank employee came forward, a person who had visited the 81st floor on a weekly basis.  His information explains more than he probably thought and provides us with a major clue about what really happened on 9/11.

Fuji Bank had torn up the 81st floor, he said, and stripped it down to the bare bone to reinforce the trusses so that the floor could hold more weight.  Then they had built a raised floor and filled the entire floor with server-size Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) batteries.

These units were bolted to the raised floor which stood about 3 feet above the reinforced 81st floor.  Beneath the raised floor ran the cables and power supply that connected the army of batteries.  IT techies had to get down on all fours and crawl around beneath the raised floor to connect cables.

"The whole floor was batteries," he said, "huge battery-looking things."  They were "all black" and "solid, very heavy" things that had been brought in during the night.  They had been put in place during the summer prior to 9/11, he said.

But were they really batteries?

"It's weird," he said.  "They were never turned on."

So, what really was on the 81st floor of WTC 2?  What was in these heavy "battery-looking things?"  Were they batteries, or were they Thermite?

- "9/11 Planes Flew Directly into Secure Computer Rooms in Both Towers", January 11, 2007
The spectacular explosions on the 81st floor that accompanied the impact of the planes were apparently created with thermate incendiaries containing barium nitrate, which would explain the light orange flame and white smoke.

The large amount of molten metal (apparently iron) cascading from the 81st floor indicates that tons of thermate (an incendiary form of thermite) had been placed in the computer room into which the plane flew.  See  Thermite in the World Trade Center - The Censored Evidence

A missile fired from a pod under the fuselage can be seen in images of the plane striking the South Tower.  The missile (which appears in lower left photo to have a trail with a diameter of about 1 meter) would have had much greater velocity than the aircraft penetrating the tower.  If this missile exceeded the speed of sound did it cause the sonic boom reportedly heard by witnesses?

The aircraft said to be Flight 175 hit 23 of the 59 steel columns (14-inch box columns) spaced about 26 inches apart (3' 4" on center).  The perimeter steel columns, cross beams (52-inch spandrel plates), and concrete floors would have arrested the forward movement of the plane.  While an engine could have broken loose from the wing, it would have lost most of its forward momentum, especially after breaking through three 14-inch wide steel box columns.  Source: World Trade Center Building Performance Study, FEMA

Note that the nose of the plane struck the 81st floor slab and spandrel, which would have cut the fuselage in half lengthwise.  The only parts of the plane that would have been on or above floor 81 would have been the right wing and engine, a slice of the fuselage, and the vertical fin.  (This NIST diagram shows the right engine hitting the spandrel of the 82nd floor, which means that the engine thought to have flown right through the tower would have first broken through the spandrel and three columns as well as through the 4-inch concrete floor, its steel pan and dense trusswork - edgewise.  This is extremely unlikely, if not impossible.  Furthermore, the main landing gear stowed under the fuselage would have entered and passed through the building on the 80th floor (or lower).  The left engine and wing would have entered the tower on the 79th floor.  Source: NIST Report on the World Trade Center

The actual aircraft that supposedly hit the South Tower and its landing gear...

How the landing gear tuck up into the fuselage during flight.  Source:  NIST

There was no evidence of a hole on the 79th or 80th floors through which the landing gear could have passed.  The space between the columns is only 26 inches (65 cm) wide.  There is no possible way that the landing gear passed through the 80th floor of the South Tower and flew some 400 meters - burning white-hot.  The government claim that it did appears to be nothing but a bold-faced lie to cover up the photographic evidence of a uranium-tipped missile.

There is no structural damage to the columns of the 80th or 79th floors that would indicate that the aircraft's landing gear passed through the building.  This is additional proof that the white-hot burning object is certainly not the landing gear.  Nearly all of the structural damage appears to have occurred on the 81st floor, where only the right engine, part of the right wing, and a slice of the fuselage entered - possibly along with the missile.  The 81st floor, where most of the explosive/fire damage clearly occurred, is exactly the floor on which the phony battery arrays were located.  The Fuji Bank occupied floors 79-82.  I spoke with Stanley Praimnath, who worked on the 81st floor, to learn more about the possibility of a large amount of thermate being placed on that floor. He told me that there was a large number of computers and backup batteries on the 81st floor, but that the batteries were never turned on.  See "Christopher Bollyn interviews Stanley Praimnath, A survivor of the 9/11 attack on the 81st floor of the South Tower"

The 14-inch box columns and 52-inch spandrel plates, the 4-inch thick concrete floors and their steel pans and trusses, and the massive core columns would have prevented the wreckage of the plane from passing through the building.

The exterior column construction showing the floor pan trusswork.  The exterior wall construction was extremely strong and would have destroyed the plane and stopped the wreckage from passing through the building.  A 767 engine has a diameter of about 9 feet (94" - 115") and would have had to pass through at least three steel columns - on both sides of the building.  It is simply not possible for a jet engine flying between 666-800 kph (414-500 mph) to break through two walls of steel columns and fly another 450 meters.  The best estimate for the maximum speed of Flight 175, however, (if an unmodified Boeing 767) is 360 knots, i.e. 185.2 meters/second or 414.36 mph.  Was the data manipulated to explain the high velocity objects that passed through the South Tower or was the plane a modified 767?  In any case, the engine found at the corner of Murray and Church Streets apparently came from a missile with higher velocity than a normal Boeing 767 flying at maximum speed at sea level.   Source: World Trade Center Building Performance Study, FEMA 
The white-hot burning object (seen on right) shows the characteristics of a depleted uranium penetrator.  The dense uranium penetrator obviously has much greater velocity and would have acted as the detonator for the thermate explosion that ignited the jet fuel.  The buildings were about 64 meters (209 feet) on each side.  In this photo, the white burning object has passed through the steel-framed tower and flown about 150 meters further.  There are no parts of a Boeing 767 that would burn white-hot like this.  Did this white-hot burning object crash into another building or did it land on the street, like the engine on the corner of Murray and Church streets?

The FEMA report said the engine and (landing gear) from Flight 175 landed about 1,725 feet (525 meters) from the point of impact with the wall of the South Tower.  The engine flew about 450 meters after passing through the tower.  The arc of the falling engine suggests that it had a velocity of about 57-60 meters/second (205-216 km/hour) after breaking through at least three 14-inch steel box columns in the south wall, the 64-meter wide tower, and more columns in the north wall.

The two objects seen flying out of the South Tower were moving significantly faster than Bobby Hull's famous slapshot (clocked at 118.3 mph or 190.4 km/h), the fastest in the history of ice hockey. This suggests that these objects had greater velocity entering the building than the aircraft's reported speed of 800 km/hour.  The government's claim that UA 175 was flying 800 km/hour is challenged by the fact that an unmodified Boeing 767 has a maximum speed of only 360 knots (666 km/hour) at sea level.  Therefore, either the reported speed (NTSB) is not correct - or we are talking about a modified 767, or both.

The light orange flame and white smoke of the fireball coming from the entry hole on the South Tower are indicative of thermate explosions while the darker orange flames and soot are evidently from the burning jet fuel.  Both planes flew into secure computer rooms in which large amounts of thermate could have been placed.  The thermate explosions would have destroyed most of the aircraft.  Although the more durable landing gear and engines were reportedly recovered from Flight 175, they were not identified by their many numbered time-tracked parts.

The unidentified engine found on the corner of Murray and Church Streets.  This appears to a part from a small engine, less than 1 meter in diameter, and may be only 2 feet depending on the length of the carpenter's square that has been laid on top.  If this is the high velocity object that is seen leaving the white smoke, it is probably not from the aircraft - but the missile.  It is too small and flew too far after hitting the South Tower.

The white-hot burning object evidently hit the Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place (in red circle).  We are told that the building was hit by parts of the landing gear and fuselage of Flight 175 but no photos of these parts were presented.  The Wikipedia article on the Burlington Coat Factory building says this:  "In 2001, in the 9/11 attacks after hijacked Flight 175 penetrated through a tower of the World Trade Center, part of the plane's landing gear and fuselage came out the north side of the tower and crashed through the roof and two of the floors of the Burlington Coat Factory at 45–47 Park Place, between West Broadway and Church Street, (600 feet or 180 meters) north of the former World Trade Center (edge of property). The plane parts destroyed three floor beams, and severely compromised the building's internal structure."  The only problem is that the landing gear of a Boeing aircraft would not burn white-hot and would probably not carry that far.  The damage to the Burlington building was not caused by landing gear.  No landing gear was seen flying in that direction.

The engine that landed on the corner of Murray Street flew an estimated 1,725 feet (525 meters) after hitting the wall of the South Tower (at a height of about 300 meters).  It is highly unlikely that a 767 jet engine, even from an aircraft supposedly flying 800 km/hour* (about 223 meters/second) could fly that far after passing through a very densely framed steel building like the tower. (Maximum speed for a Boeing 767 at sea level is 360 knots or 666 km/hour.) Most (if not all) of the aircraft did not even pass through the tower.  Source: Jon Carlson
The two objects that are seen in the second photo have long been of great interest to me.  I think (and have written) that the object seen leaving the blackish trail of oxides is the depleted uranium warhead, which Marion Fulk, a former scientist at Livermore Lab, also thought was possible.

The two objects showing incredible inertia are seen in this photo.  Note the difference in their oxide trails.  The white-hot object leaving the black oxides is probably the depleted uranium penetrator while the object leaving the white trail is probably the engine and fuel that propelled the missile.
This morning it occurred to me that the second object, the one leaving the white trail, is probably the rocket burning off its unspent fuel. Since the rocket was only fired as the plane neared the tower, this rocket engine has only flown about 250 feet by the time it passes out of the tower. It certainly has the mass and velocity - and unused fuel - to be out ahead of the blast along with the DU warhead.

The two objects that have incredible velocity are way out in front (of the parts of the aircraft) as can be seen in this photo...

and the DU penetrator burning white-hot and leaving behind its trail of dark oxides is clearly seen in this photo.
Can you help me with the physics of this a little bit, or do you know anyone who can? The plane was flying about 500 mph when the rocket would have been launched from the pod beneath the body of the plane. I assume the rocket would have accelerated to about 500 mph on its own as it passed through the building. Roughly, I estimate that the heavy parts of the missile, i.e. the rocket and the DU tip, would have been going about 1,000 mph as they passed through the tower. The white hot DU tip would have been disconnected from the rocket engine and both of them may have been deflected somewhat from their original trajectory, although both are pretty much on their original course. I would assume that the more massive DU tip would be the part least deflected.
This is what I have been thinking about on the first day of 2011. I think it will be a great year. I am hot on the trail of the guys who destroyed the steel from the WTC and you know better than I why this was such an important part of the crime...
With many thanks and all the best wishes for 2011,

The theory of pre-placement of thermate in the computer rooms into which the planes crashed at the World Trade Center is supported by the differences in the damage caused when a B-25 bomber crashed into the Empire State Building in 1945.  The culprits of 9/11 knew that because large-body passenger aircraft crash into skyscrapers so rarely they could allow for spectacular Hollywood special effects like the thermate fire balls seen coming from both towers on impact.  They knew there would be no test done afterwards to see if what was observed on 9/11 could be duplicated. 

The 1945 crash of a B-25 bomber allows for some comparison on the structural damage to the different towers.
The force of B-25 on the building has been calculated here.  It is important to note that the 15-ton bomber flying at an estimated 400 kph came to a rest 20 meters into the building.  (See Bomber Crash into Empire State Building)  If the plane that struck the South Tower was flying twice as fast, how far would the wreckage pass through the building?  Twice as far?  Given the amount of steel that blocked its passage, most of the aircraft debris would have not exited the tower on the far side.  None was seen with the exception of the two objects flying out ahead of the explosion.  The main reasons for placing thermate explosives in the computer rooms into which the planes were guided was probably to destroy by an extremely hot explosion as much of the plane debris and evidence as possible to prevent identification of the remotely-guided planes.

Note:  I have written about the evidence that DU-tipped missiles were fired into each tower before impact by the planes since 2004, after having learned about the characteristics of depleted uranium from Doug Rokke and Marion Fulk.
Marion Fulk, former staff scientist from the Manhattan Project and Star Wars program, tutored Bollyn on the properties and dangers of depleted uranium at his home in Livermore, California.  Fulk said he felt obliged to inform the public about the dangers of uranium to human health.

Were DU Missiles used on the World Trade Center? 

by Christopher Bollyn

23 October 2004

The video, "911: In Plane Site," by Dave von Kleist, examines the video evidence and shows that there was a white flash before United Airlines Flight 175 and American Airlines Flight 11 struck the towers.

In the case of the South Tower, the von Kleist video shows the underside of the plane, seen from from four different cameras and angles, with a cylindrical pod and a mysterious white object being fired from the pod before the plane hits the tower. This object impacts the tower before the plane, creating a bright flash.  
A similar white flash can be seen in the video, made by the Naudet brothers, of Flight 11 crashing into the North Tower.  
The white flashes are similar to the flashes that are seen when depleted uranium (DU) penetrators hits their target. DU is a spontaneous pyrophoric material, i.e. it inflames when reaching its target generating such heat that it explodes.  (More correctly stated, a pyrophoric substance is a reactive metal, like uranium, that will ignite spontaneously in air.) 
If DU missiles preceded the impacts of Flights 175 and 11, then there is the question of what happened to the DU penetrators? One would expect that they traveled through the towers and carried on into the streets of New York or into other buildings.  
Unless they impacted sufficiently dense objects to stop them, they should have continued through the buildings, and be seen flying ahead of the flames and debris. After all, uranium is 1.7 times more dense than lead.  
A photo in Eric Hufschmid's book "Painful Questions" [p. 39, seen above] shows two objects passing through the South Tower, ahead of the flames. One of them displays the characterics of burning uranium [see above photos].  
In the main photo, seen below, two objects are visible passing through the South Tower. One is black and leaving a white smoke trail; the other is burning with a bright white flame and leaving a black trail.  
The color of the flame and the color of the oxides [smoke] are important. The color of the flame indicates the substance that is burning and its temperature. The bright white flame is indicative of a reactive metal, such as magnesium or uranium.  
I contacted Marion Fulk, a former staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, to ask about the photos seen below. After studying the photos, I asked Fulk if the object in the photo could be uranium.  
"Yes," Fulk said, "It is possible." Asked if the black smoke could be uranium oxides, Fulk said, "Yes, it could be uranium oxide."  
Fulk went on to describe the "dirty" olive green, brown, and black colors of the 21 different phases of uranium oxide.  
The gap between the burning object and the black smoke trail was explained by Leuren Moret, geo-scientist and international radiation expert, who said that the gap is where the uranium gas and vapors are so hot they are still invisible. As the vapors cool, they condense into visible uranium oxides.  
Asked how the piece of uranium could be burning so hot, Moret explained that some of the kinetic energy from the uranium missile would be converted into heat.  
If this is a DU penetrator, it could explain Moret's claim that the World Trade Center rubble was radioactive.  
Were DU missiles used to ignite the fuel in the airplanes to create the spectacular explosions that were used to explain the pre-planned demolition of the twin towers?  
Video Evidence of DU on 9/11 
Christopher Bollyn presented evidence that debunked the official version of events of 9/11 at a meeting in Los Angeles in October 2004.  
He showed this video about the possibility that uranium was used during the attack at the WTC and the Pentagon: www.erichufschmid.net/ForBollynsSpeech23Oct2004.wmv  
The photo below from the Pentagon clean-up shows the extensive decontamination procedures that were followed after 9/11. Such procedures and precautions were not done at the World Trade Center.  What were the people at the Pentagon so concerned about?  Was the site hot from depleted uranium?
End Notes and Comments:

* "Based on analysis of radar data, the National Transportation and Safety Board reported the groundspeed just before impact as 510 knots. This is well beyond the maximum operating velocity of 360 knots, and maximum dive velocity of 410 knots. The possibilities as I see them are:
(1) this wasn’t a standard 767-200;
(2) the radar data was compromised in some manner;
(3) the NTSB analysis was erroneous; or
(4) the 767 flew well beyond its flight envelope, was controllable, and managed to hit a relatively small target."
- Dwain Deets, Retired NASA Senior Executive, “NASA Flight Director Confirms 9/11 Aircraft Speed As The ‘Elephant In The Room’”, June 22, 2010, PilotsFor911Truth.org

Important comment from Captain Russ Wittenberg, who knows all about the 767 that supposedly hit the South Tower - having flown the aircraft multiple times:

To my aviator and non-aviator friends, this is a very short, non technical, visual demonstration of aerodynamics at transonic to supersonic speeds. This is important to know, even if you are NOT an aviator.  Why?  Well, if you’re at all interested in the events that happened on 9/11/01 at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, this will begin to explain WHY the "official story" (actually, fairy tale) that almost everyone (who is NOT a pilot or has knowledge of high speed flight) has bought into, "hook, line, and sinker."  "They" would have us believe that the airliners going well over 110 knots ABOVE their maximum design limit speed (called Vmo)!  The fakers who made up the "fairy tale" of course weren't pilots, so, they didn't know what they were doing! 

Here are the numbers: The fakers say the B-757's and 767's were doing about 530 MPH (that's statute miles per hour).  Well, we don't use statute miles!  We use KNOTS! So, this translates to about 460 Knots, which is exactly 110 knots ABOVE Vmo of 350 Kts at about 1000' above MSL (sea level)! IN LEVEL FLIGHT NO LESS!!!! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE! The "Drag Rise" (shock waves) would rip the wings off the airplane well before reaching that speed! Above Vy, (best rate of climb speed) drag increases to the square of the velocity of the air speed! Remember folks, these were AIRLINERS - NOT JET FIGHTERS like the ones you will see here!

United Air Lines Captain Russ Wittenberg (ret.) was Pilot in Command (PIC) on each of the UAL aircraft that were supposedly used on the event on 9/11 - multiple times.  He flew the actual B-767 that hit the South Tower (UA 175) and the B-757 that supposedly crashed at Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

911-Ch. Bollyn-Who Sold the 9/11 Steel for Scrap?


Who Sold the 9/11 Steel for Scrap?

May 27, 2011
Andrew J. Naporano, the former president of Metal Management Northeast (formerly Naporano Iron and Metal Co. of Newark, New Jersey), was a consultant involved in selling the structural steel and ferrous and non-ferrous scrap from the World Trade Center after 9/11.  The effort to recycle the steel was actually criminal destruction of crucial evidence from the crime scene.  The hasty destruction of the steel evidence was thinly disguised as a recovery and clean-up operation.  Destroying the evidence was an intrinsic part of the false-flag terror atrocity of 9/11, a crime of historic proportions.
I contacted Mr. Naporano while researching my chapter on the destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center.  Although he did not provide any information at the time, when I finished the two final chapters I sent him a note with links to the material.  He wrote back to me and included a MS Word document, which is his "World Trade Center Job Summary Report" dated August 6, 2002. 

I will post Mr. Naporano's report as a link in the endnotes of the chapter on the destruction of the steel. 
His report is a very interesting and important document which fills in some of the blanks by providing information about how the steel evidence was handled and who was behind the destruction of this crucial evidence.  It clarifies a few key points and raises a few questions.

Nearly 300,000 tons of structural steel were expected to be recovered from the remains of the World Trade Center but fewer than 200,000 tons were actually found in this form.
In Naporano's report the estimates given for the amount of structural steel from the World Trade Center are between 276,800 net tons (LERA) and 309,000 net tons (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers).  As I mention in my chapter, the estimate considered most accurate was that about 280,000 tons of structural steel should have been found in the pile of rubble.
When all was said and done, a total of 198,416 tons of structural steel was recovered and sold as scrap, according to Naporano.  This is a discrepancy of at least 80,000 tons of structural steel, a difference of about 30 percent.  That is to say that almost one third of the structural steel from the World Trade Center was not accounted for in the recovery effort.  What could have happened to the missing 80,000 tons of structural steel? 

These hot dust clouds of pulverized concrete contained a large amount of the steel from the floor pans that had been melted and converted into tiny balls of molten iron by super-thermite.

Tiny chips of a bi-layered coating of super-thermite were found in the dust by Dr. Steven E. Jones.  This explosive coating has more energy per gram than any other explosive used in demolition.
Naporano says that the New York City Department of Sanitation (DOS) received 1,457,703 tons of debris, which he estimated may have contained between 2-5 percent scrap steel.  Steel scrap found in this debris would have been shipped to the Jersey City junkyard of Hugo Neu, which had the scrap steel contract with the DOS.  While we don't know how much structural steel was eventually recovered from the DOS debris, even at the highest estimate of 5 percent it would not account for all the missing steel.
What we do know, however, is that a very large amount of structural steel was melted instantly when the thermitic explosive coating was detonated.  This can be seen by the very large amount of iron spheroids found in the dust.  These balls of molten iron came from either thermite-melted structural steel or the thermite itself.  Large amounts of structural steel, such as the 220 acre-size steel floor pans, were melted during the explosive demolitions.  The concrete floors were pulverized by a coating of super-thermite, fragments of which were later found in the dust.

A large amount of structural steel was converted into tiny spheres of molten iron when the thermitic coating was detonated, destroying the steel floor pans and pulverizing the 220 concrete floors of the Twin Towers.

Tons of molten iron poured from the South Tower minutes before it collapsed.  Government-funded researchers were unable to explain how tons of molten iron could have been produced by burning jet fuel.  Molten iron and white smoke (aluminum oxide), like we see here, are the products of a thermitic reaction, which releases a great deal of heat.
Naporano was the consultant for the sales of the steel but he was not in charge.  He explains that the Port Authority (the owner of the World Trade Center) "was overseeing my work."  The Port Authority was then headed by Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg.  Chairman Eisenberg was the key person to approve the bids from the seven junkyards bidding on the steel.  Eisenberg chose three junkyards to receive the evidence from the crime:  Metal Management Northeast, Hugo Neu Schnitzer East, and the smaller Blandford.  All three companies are controlled by Zionists.  

Lewis Eisenberg, Chairman of the Port Authority in 2001
Eisenberg remained in the key position as chairman of the Port Authority until the end of the 2001.  Eisenberg played a key role in the setting up of the 9/11 terror attacks and in the "clean up" after the explosive demolitions in which nearly 3,000 people were murdered.  Eisenberg chose who would get the lease for the towers (the Zionist agents Larry Silverstein and Frank Lowy) and to whom the structural steel would be sold when the towers were destroyed six weeks later. 

Naporano's report says, "Finally, approval was given to sell to a limited number of buyers (2). (The list was expanded on subsequent bids)."  The three bidders who were chosen by Eisenberg were Metals Management, Inc., Hugo Neu Schnitzer, and Blandford Land Development.  These three companies received a total of 198,416 tons of structural steel from the World Trade Center.  Blandford received the smallest amount, 23,289 tons, while MTLM received 77,832 tons.  Hugo Neu got 97,305 tons of structural steel plus whatever steel was recovered from the debris taken away by the Department of Sanitation plus 150,748 tons of "other ferrous."  All told, Hugo Neu received more than 250,000 tons of ferrous scrap from the World Trade Center.

At the end of Naporano's report he says that the ferrous scrap (steel and iron) from Ground Zero brought in $4,269,437.  While scrap prices were low in 2001 (about $70-80 per ton) we can see that the steel scrap from the World Trade Center was sold to the selected junkyards very cheaply.  The total amount of structural steel and ferrous scrap from Ground Zero was 356,984 tons, which was sold for less than $4.3 million.  This means the World Trade Center steel was sold (on average) for less than $12 per ton.  The junkyards then reportedly sold the steel to mills in Asia for $120 per ton - about 10 times more than they paid for it.  What a deal.   
Lastly, Naporano's report raises the issue of discrepancies with the displacement surveys of the barges carrying the steel to the junkyards.  He found that there was a consistent discrepancy of about 5 percent with the displacement tables used to estimate the weight of steel loaded into the DOS barges.  This discrepancy "resulted in the city receiving 95 percent of the value" of the steel sold.  The flawed displacement tables that resulted in the city being cheated out of 5 percent of every load had been provided by Peter Kelman, the marine surveyor for Hugo Neu.  Peter's son, Robert Kelman, was running Hugo Neu's steel recycling operation as the company's general manager.

The weight of the steel being sold was determined by displacement tables that Naporano found to be flawed.  The tables came from Peter Kelman, the marine surveyor and partner of Hugo Neu, the largest recipient of WTC steel.
Naporano raised the issue of investigating the displacement tables provided by Kelman.  "Although initially approved, the idea of investigating the DOS displacement tables was then revoked, so I was not able to get to the bottom of the issue", Naporano concluded. 
Naporano's report, which I assume to be correct and true, indicates that Peter Kelman of Hugo Neu had provided flawed displacement tables that short-changed the seller of the steel by 5 percent.  It also indicates that about one third of the structural steel from the World Trade Center is not accounted for under that heading.  A very large amount of structural steel seems to have gone up in smoke and was later found in the dust in the form of tiny droplets of molten iron.  Finally, Naporano's report indicates who was behind choosing the junkyards that received the steel from the World Trade Center - and how cheaply they got it.
Andrew Naporano seems to be an honest man who wound up working with a gang of criminals involved in destroying the steel from the World Trade Center.  His son served as a U.S. Navy pilot and flew more than 100 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.  It is most ironic that Mr. Naporano was involved in the destruction of evidence, which would have revealed the truth of what happened to the Twin Towers if it had been properly examined.  If the steel had been sorted and stored (Naporano's Option No. 2), it would have been scrutinized by steel experts who would have discovered the real cause of the explosive demolitions that killed 3,000 people.  Had the crucial steel evidence been treated properly by the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI, the younger Naporano would have never been sent on bombing missions in Afghanistan and Iraq and we would be living in a more just and secure world today.

911-Ch. Bollyn-Was Super Thermite in WTC Floor Ducts?


Was Super Thermite in WTC Floor Ducts?

May 30, 2011
I received an interesting note from a reader in Canada who thinks that the super-thermite that pulverized the floors of the Twin Towers may have been put into wiring canals and ducts located within the 4-inch thick lightweight concrete floors.  This may very well be where the super-thermite was applied.  The diagram below show the large wiring ducts (18" x 3") that ran inside the concrete floors to contain telephone and electrical wires.

Here is the letter I received:
I was listening to Truth Jihad radio today and heard you talking about putting thermite into the paint of the WTC floor pans. I've considered that theory before and I don't think it's feasible for a number of reasons:
1) They would have to strip ALL of the fire-proofing insulation off of the floor pans first and not all of the fire proofing WAS replaced. It was only beefed up where needed.
2) They would have to go underneath, through the ceiling tile access and this would vastly disturb the tenants.
3) The exploding of this film would really only blow off insulation, blow down the ceiling tiles and would have created very brilliant flashing on all floors. Almost no explosion light was visible except in the corners of the buildings.
Here's my own theory ...
Those towers HAD to have channels in the floors for bringing in electrical and telephone lines ... on a gridwork ... so that when tenants renovated, they could put their outlets wherever they wanted, within -say- 16". They didn't bring power DOWN from the ceilings; they brought it up through the floor. That let them have open space and cubicles.
So ... MOST of these channels would be empty. Only the ones used for carrying the lines would be occupied. The rest would remain hidden under the concrete ... ready to be accessed by drilling down in specific locations (measurement by blueprint). Once opened, they could fish new lines in ... down and across or just straight down the channels.
Access to the end of these channels would be in the CORE area where the elevators were located. The sabateurs could come in at night when few people were around ... and go up into the ceiling in the core area and then blow nano-thermite into these channels or ... run it in as a liquid/plastic slurry. They could virtually fill the floors with this explosive without ever disturbing the tenant spaces. (but the tenants might notice dust settled on surfaces that would come out of the electrical outlets on the floors from this pressured filling).
The core box columns could have been loaded INTERNALLY with thermite by going up into the hat truss area and lowering strings of spaced thermite down into them. This would hide the bright flaring of the thermite as well.
The difficult part would be the building corners. I've not come up with a theory on how they could place explosives or cutting charges there ... because the external colums were made in H sections and then butt-bolted together. The internal columns were hollow from top to bottom but the external colums had these butt-joints which would prevent putting anything down them.
Anyway, all they needed to do was cut the corner support for the buildings. The exploding floors would then automatically kick out the outside walls.
And ...
How did they manage to control the explosives from outside? They had renovated the fire alarm system and were in stage 3 of the renovations -(the port authority having ordered a bunch of new equipment in 1998).
The new fire alarm system was "addressable" and could be run from a central command station ... like the internet works. The signals don't go by individual wires; they go on common wires but get allocated by packet addressing. That allows virtually thousands of devices to be addressed individually ... including explosives.
Check out the fire alarm systems on that day and you find that none of them worked as they should. Building #7 had its fire alarm system TOTALLY shut down for the day. 

The ductwork in the floors of the Twin Towers may have been "wired" with super thermite.

911-Ch. Bollyn-Lawson Video on "No Planes" Theory

Lawson Video on "No Planes" Theory

Updated August 5, 2011
Anthony Lawson has made another excellent new video entitled "The Absurdity of the No Planes in New York Theory" in which he challenges the "No Planes" theory promoted by James Fetzer and others.  Lawson also wrote an article, titled "9/11: The Absurdity of the No-Planes-in-New York Theory" that supports his video.
There is one point in the latest Lawson video where I am not in complete agreement.  After exchanging emails with Mr. Lawson, I have decided to clarify my position on this point. 

The photographs and videos clearly show two very fast moving objects flying out of the South Tower ahead of the explosion.  Lawson identifies one of these as the engine that was found on Murray Street.  I agree with him on that, but I do not think this engine is from the aircraft, but is rather part of a depleted uranium missile that was fired into the tower just before the plane made impact.  I think both objects seen flying out of the South Tower are parts of this missile.  The object that is burning white hot is probably the remaining depleted uranium warhead leaving a dark trail of uranium oxides.  The gap between the extremely hot burning uranium warhead and the visible oxides could be due to the fact that the oxides need to cool before they are visible. 

The two fast-moving objects that came out of the South Tower had incredible momentum.

The right engine of the aircraft (about 9 feet in diameter) would have broken through at least three 14-inch exterior box columns on entry, which would have robbed it of most of its forward momentum.  The aircraft engine would not have had enough momentum to pass through the building, break through more box columns on the far side of the tower, and carry on for a few hundred meters down the street.  This is as far-fetched as Arlen Specter's "Magic Bullet" of the JFK assassination.

This NIST diagram shows the right engine hitting the spandrel of the 82nd floor, which means that the engine that is thought to have flown through the tower would have first broken through the spandrel and three 14-inch box columns, the 4-inch concrete floor, its steel pan, and dense trusswork - edgewise.  It is simply impossible for the right engine to have passed through all these solid obstacles, broken through the box columns on the far side, and carried on for several hundred meters further down the street.  This engine would not have passed through the tower.  Source: NIST Report on the World Trade Center
I have written an analysis of these two objects in an article from April 2011 entitled "The 'Huge Bullet Hole' in the South Tower and Analysis of Missile Evidence".  The object that is burning white hot has the characteristics of a burning depleted uranium warhead.  While one of these two objects is probably the engine that landed on Murray Street, I do not think it is the one that is burning white hot.  The engine that landed on the street has not been identified and is probably part of the missile that carried the depleted uranium warhead. 

Two objects came out of the South Tower ahead of the explosions.  Note the gap between the burning object and the dark oxides it produces.

The FEMA report says that one is an engine and the other is "landing gear".  Landing gear would not burn white hot.  If this landing gear landed on the Burlington Coat Factory, why was it not shown in any photographs?

This engine, "the bullet from the smoking gun" that killed hundreds of people on 9/11, was never identified and was treated as garbage.  Judging by the sign and the square placed on top of it, this part of the engine is only about two feet (60 cm) wide.  Why was this engine not identified by its time-tracked parts if it truly came from the airliner that is said to have hit the South Tower?  My opinion is that this is part of the missile that penetrated the tower immediately before the aircraft made impact.
