Major University Study Finds “Fire Did Not Bring Down Tower 7 On 9/11”

  • The results of this study cannot be dismissed. It completely destroys the narrative that has been shoved down the throats of Americans for nearly two decades.

Authored by Matt Agorist via The Free Thought Project:

On September 11, 2001, at 5:20 p.m., World Trade Center Building 7 suddenly collapsed into its own footprint, falling at free fall speed for 2.5 seconds of its seven-second complete destruction. WTC 7 was not hit by a plane. After it collapsed, Americans were told that office fires caused a unique — never before seen — complete architectural failure leading to the building collapsing into its own footprint at the rate of gravity.

Despite calls for the evidence to be preserved, New York City officials had the building’s debris removed and destroyed in the ensuing weeks and months, preventing a proper forensic investigation from ever taking place. Seven years later, federal investigators concluded that WTC 7 was the first steel-framed high-rise ever to have collapsed solely as a result of normal office fires.

Naturally, skeptics have been questioning the official story for some time and after moving from the realm of conspiracy theory into the realm of science, an extensive university study has found that the official story of fire causing the collapse is simply not true.

This week, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth announced their partnership with the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in releasing a draft report of an in depth four-year study on what actually brought down WTC 7. According to the press release, the release of the draft report begins a two-month period during which the public is invited to submit comments. The final report will be published later this year.

According to the study’s authors:

The UAF research team utilized three approaches for examining the structural response of WTC 7 to the conditions that may have occurred on September 11, 2001. First, we simulated the local structural response to fire loading that may have occurred below Floor 13, where most of the fires in WTC 7 are reported to have occurred. Second, we supplemented our own simulation by examining the collapse initiation hypothesis developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Third, we simulated a number of scenarios within the overall structural system in order to determine what types of local failures and their locations may have caused the total collapse to occur as observed.

After conducting comprehensive modeling and studying countless scenarios, the study’s authors, J. Leroy Hulsey, Ph.D., P.E., S.E., UAF, Zhili Quan, Ph.D., Bridge Engineer South Carolina Department of Transportation, and Feng Xiao, Ph.D., Associate Professor Nanjing University of Science and Technology Department of Civil Engineering, concluded the following:

Fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.

The results of this study cannot be dismissed. It completely destroys the narrative that has been shoved down the throats of Americans for nearly two decades. What’s more, this study backs up thousands of other researchers, scientists, and engineers who have been pointing this out for years.

In fact, as TFTP reported in July, history was made in regard to 9/11 as New York area fire commissioners called for a new investigation into the tragic events that unfolded that day. The resolution called for a new investigation due to the “overwhelming evidence” that “pre-planted explosives . . . caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings.”

On July 24, 2019, the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District, which oversees a volunteer fire department serving a hamlet of 30,000 residents just outside of Queens, New York, became the first legislative body in the country to officially support a new investigation into the events of 9/11, according to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

The resolution calling for a new investigation was drafted by Commissioner Christopher Gioia and it was immediately and unanimously approved by the five commissioners.

“We’re a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters. You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board, we will be an unstoppable force,” said Commissioner Christopher Gioia, adding, “We were the first fire district to pass this resolution. We won’t be the last.”

According to the report:

The impact of 9/11 on the community extends well beyond the victims and their grieving families. On September 12, 2001, the Franklin Square Fire Department was called in to assist with the massive rescue and recovery effort that was just getting underway. Countless members of the department, including Gioia and Commissioner Philip Malloy (then rank-and-file firefighters), spent weeks on the pile searching in vain for civilians and fellow responders who might still be alive. Today, Malloy is one of thousands suffering chronic health effects.

The department also lost one of its own in Thomas J. Hetzel, affectionately referred to as “Tommy” by the commissioners. Hetzel was a full-time member of the New York Fire Department in addition to serving as a volunteer firefighter in Franklin Square. A touching memorial to Hetzel was on display during the meeting, and Hetzel’s widow, parents, and sister were all in attendance.

“The Hetzel and Evans families were very appreciative of the proceedings,” Gioia commented the day after the meeting. “They know it’s an uphill struggle. But at least they have hope, which is something they haven’t had in a long time.”

The importance of this resolution — especially coming from a legislative body of fire fighters — is immense. The impact of first responders calling for a new investigation over the use of explosives is massive. The naysayers who call those who question the official narrative “kooks” will have a hard time going after fire commissioners.

This move and the study above are yet another blow to the highly questionable and hole-filled official narrative. As TFTP reported earlier this year, in another major move from the great folks over at the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and 9/11 victim family members Robert McIlvaine and Barbara Krukowski-Rastelli, a joint federal lawsuit has been filed to assess any evidence the FBI may have known about that contributed to the destruction of the towers on 9/11 which they may have kept from Congress.

The complaint cites the failure of the FBI and its 9/11 Review Commission to assess key 9/11-related evidence that the FBI can be shown to have had, or been aware of, regarding:

  1. the use of pre-placed explosives to destroy World Trade Center Buildings, 1, 2, and 7;
  2. the arrest and investigation of the “High Fivers” observed photographing and celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11;
  3. terrorist financing related the reported Saudi support for the 9/11 hijackers;
  4. recovered plane parts, including serial numbers from all three crash locations;
  5. video from cameras mounted inside and outside the Pentagon; and
  6. cell phone communications from passengers aboard airplanes.

According to the press release on Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, this is evidence relevant to the 9/11 Review Commission’s and the FBI’s compliance with the mandate from Congress, which should have been assessed by the FBI and the 9/11 Review Commission and reported to Congress. The complaint also cites the destruction by the FBI of evidence related to the “High Fivers.” Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has joined in bringing the counts that involve the evidence of the World Trade Center’s explosive demolition and evidence related to the “High Fivers,” while the other plaintiffs are party to all counts.

Also, as TFTP previously reported, a monumental step forward in the relentless pursuit of 9/11 truth took place last December when a United States Attorney agreed to comply with federal law requiring submission to a Special Grand Jury of evidence that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers. Then, in March, the group behind the submission, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, announced the filing of a “petition supplement” naming persons who may have information related to the use of said explosives.

According to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the 33-page document contains 15 different categories of persons who may have information material to the investigation, including contractors and security companies that had access to the WTC Towers before 9/11, persons and entities who benefited financially from the WTC demolitions, and persons arrested after being observed celebrating the WTC attacks.

names-redacted version of the petition supplement, which was filed with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York on February 14, 2019, has been made available to the public. The un-redacted version filed with the U.S. Attorney today will remain undisclosed in the interest of maintaining the secrecy, security, and integrity of the grand jury proceeding.

As TFTP reported in December, for the first time since 9/11 the federal government is taking steps to hear evidence that explosives may have been used to destroy the world trade centers.

The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry successfully submitted a petition to the federal government demanding that the U.S. Attorney present to a Special Grand Jury extensive evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center Towers on 9/11 (WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7).

After waiting months for the reply, the U.S. Attorney responded in a letter, noting that they will comply with the law.

“We have received and reviewed The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc.’s submissions of April 10 and July 30, 2018. We will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman stated.

According to the petition, dozens of exhibits were presented as evidence that explosives were used to destroy all three world trade centers.

The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC Towers on 9/11.That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of seeing and hearing explosions at the World Trade Center on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 both prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis and testimony by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of these three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The July 30th Amended Petition included the same evidence but also addressed several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition.

The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices that had been preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7 on 9/11, and the resulting tragic loss of life, and that “the evidence permits no other conclusion — as a matter of science, as a matter of logic, and as a matter of law.”

“This Petition Supplement is intended to assist the Special Grand Jury by providing a roadmap for a meaningful investigation into the yet-to-be-prosecuted 9/11 WTC crimesthat the Lawyers’ Committee has reported and documented in our Petitions,” Attorney David Meiswinkle, President of the Lawyers’ Committee’s Board of Directors, said.

Finally, after nearly two decades of ridicule, dismissal, and outright intolerance of information contrary to the “official story” of what happened on 9/11, the public may finally learn the truth of what happened and who was behind it.

Wow. They’re airing out quite a bit of stuff recently. There must be a big false flag in the works. I’ll bet $$$ the Golden Gate Bridge is going down.

I’ll see that bet, any specific date? Rough date? not in the period of “one day it will happen” I’ll double the bet and say you’re wrong whenever you state.

How much $$$ we talking?

Lets start at $3 and I’ll say the White House or Capitol hill will be next in about 5 years (during Trumps next Term). Who will die is up for grabs (I back Trump or a number of Senior Republicans along with a number of named Dems like Warren in a Bomb/Gas/Chemical Attack with possible shooting and suicide for dessert).

Not really sure if you are being sarcastic or not 🙂 If you are then that is exactly the answer I am expecting from Thomas, vague and covering plenty of options.

If you are not then sure I’ll see that bet and double no problem, if you can give me some tighter specifics i.e. don’t cover multiple types of attack or places, take Thomas reply, very concise, it;s the bridge, just no word on when. The scattergun approach is overused and to be honest boring.

That’s just it. The attack will be multi facetted as a number of attack have been planned to be. Primarily it’ll be chemical in nature spread by one or more explosives in a crowned area as politicians are at capitol hill. Follow up shooting as an outside bet

Dave

Yep, vague and non descript as I thought it would be, I can’t bet on those terms but better that than say you don’t know right?

Happy trails

It’s a pretty reasonable and straight forward statement. If want simple then chemical, capitol hill after a key session of congress where trump is present. If you want to up the anti then a $ for Chemical and explosion and shooting and Trump And at least one prominian Dem. If none of the above happen then thats $4 that is up.

This is a preliminary study not peer reviewed research so is not a serious study and I am disappointed to see this in the Duran. The ‘study’ (or petition) takes the form of a pseudo academic rather similar in form to the Muller report containing a lot of innuendo and supposition unsupported by evidence that suggests steel has to melt for the buildings to lose structural integrity, (which is not true). The report also includes easy disprovable lies suggesting other buildings have not collapsed due to fire, here are ones that did. https://abcnews.go.com/International/massive-high-rise-fire-building-collapse-brazil-dead/story?id=54846500 https://www.tehrantimes.com/photo/410249/Plasco-Building-collapses-after-massive-blaze https://www.designingbuildings.co.uk/wiki/Torre_Windsor_office_building_fire 1/ The evidence was the… Read more »

Don’t hold your breath waiting for any change to the official 9/11 story. Consider: JFK was assassinated over 55 years ago and it is clear to most of us that the Warren Report is a crock of ****, yet it still stands as the official story, and will always be reported in the MSM as irrefutable fact. In the case of the official 9/11 story, you’ll never hear a hint of dissent in the MSM. It doesn’t matter if 80% of Americans don’t believe it, it will always remain a closed book, officially. No changes will be made to it… Read more »

Probably a monetary system collapse. Remember when “it took a wheelborrow full of (Wiemar Republic) money to buy a loaf of bread”….it hasn’t been that long ago really. There is a house of cards….your right based in “confidence”….that once started is a self continuing collapse. In 2008 there were around $700 trillion in derivatives, by around 2012 there was estimated $12,000 trillion. That is the banker casino. Re 911….The dung has hit the fan. It’s already known by too many people, communication that has not been available in the past…it kept Hillary from being elected…..from the time she helped set… Read more »

You may be spot on with your analysis , but the way to bring it all on quickly , is to start snuffing out all ( millions ) criminals who we deem to be guilty of knowledge and official cover ups over the last 19 years . Just start shooting the bastards , but do not get caught !! In a couple of years , we might have regained Democracy if this takes off !

Excellent comment. The truth of 911 will not be heard otherwise the state itself would collapse. If worse comes to worst however the ‘Saudis did it’ meme will replace the ‘hijackers’ did it version. There are plenty of people dumb enough to sell that one to.

I belong to a website SS for MV owners and posted about this. It was removed and the censoring moderator, who would not say his name but was backed up by management, replied that they had rules against posting stuff about “zombies (apocalypse) and preppers”. The level of apathy by people that should care is incredible.

The official 9/11 “story” does NOT stand up to close scrutiny….and many physicists and engineers tend to agree…and the Pentagon “plane” strike begs the question how the fuel laden wings left nary a mark on the building at the “point of impact”???

Quote: Russian President Vladimir Putin had called his US counterpart George W. Bush two days before the 9/11 attacks in 2001, warning about an imminent terrorist plot coming from Afghanistan, a former CIA analyst has revealed. The urgent warning coming from the Russian leader is mentioned in the book ‘The Russia Trap: How Our Shadow War with Russia Could Spiral into Nuclear Catastrophe,’ released earlier this week and written by George Beebee, a senior Bush-era CIA analyst. Sounds to me like either it’s another Pearl Harbor story and someone around Bush didn’t want him to know or that Bush was… Read more »

Please inform the worthy academics they’re about 18 yrs too late. WTC Lessee Larry Silversetin is on record as saying he ordered the demolition of WTC7, which means that he knew about 9/11 at least a month before. Also the famed BBC announced live on TV the collapse of WTC7 – while it still stood tall in the background – journalist’s faulty ear piece? This story is old. The truth is widely known. The culprits will never be indicted. It’s America.
