Grand Jury Should Investigate World Trade Center Explosions On 9/11

By Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry

According to its report, the 9/11 Commission had a “sweeping” mandate to investigate the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It was supposed to provide the fullest possible account of the events surrounding 9/11, and to identify lessons learned. But no matter how noble its purpose, the Commission was “set up to fail,” according to Commission Co-Chairs Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton. The Commission was woefully under-funded, working under an unreasonable deadline, denied access to sensitive information, and faced continuous opposition and resistance from the very agencies whose cooperation was needed most.

In their book, Without Precedent, Kean and Hamilton wrote, “Fog of war could explain why some people were confused on the day of 9/11, but it could not explain why all of the after-action reports, accident investigations, and public testimony by FAA and NORAD [North American Aerospace Defense Command] officials advanced an account of 9/11 that was untrue.” In the end, the 9/11 Commission Report failed to address many of the public’s questions about that day.

Case in point: despite 567 pages, the report never mentions the destruction of the Salomon Brothers Building—WTC 7—much less explains how a 47-story building, never hit by a plane, with only a few reported fires, came down symmetrically on its own footprint at near free-fall acceleration only hours after the attacks.

According to 9/11 opinion polls, substantial numbers of Americans question the official story or believe the government failed to investigate or tell the public the truth.

Zogby International found that 43% of Americans are not aware of WTC 7’s collapse; 38% of those who are aware believe the 9/11 Commission should have investigated its destruction; 45% believe the attacks should be reinvestigated; and 42% believe that the government and the 9/11 Commission concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts the official story.

On April 10th, 2018, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry—a nonprofit public interest organization supported by 9/11 victim families, architects, engineers, scientists and concerned citizens—filed a petition with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey S. Berman. Pursuant to federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 3332(a), the petition demands the Department of Justice present to a special grand jury extensive evidence that pre-placed explosives detonated at the World Trade Center on 9/11 caused the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7.

The 52-page petition and its 57 exhibits set forth in detail substantial forensic, expert, and testimonial evidence of pre-placed explosives at the WTC, including: lab analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives; seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts on the towers, and prior to the building collapses; technical analysis of video evidence that corroborates the use of explosives; highly credible firefighter reports of explosions in the buildings; video and eyewitness testimony that steel elements were forcefully ejected laterally at high speed from the towers, inconsistent with a gravity-driven collapse; observations of molten iron in the debris pile weeks after the attacks, and even government reports confirming sulfidation and high-temperature corrosion of the steel found in the rubble, consistent with the use of high-tech incendiaries. This evidence was never explained in the 9/11 Commission Report nor in any other official findings.

According to the petition, this evidence—coupled with the pulverization and symmetric collapse of the WTC buildings, and their free-fall and near-free-fall acceleration during collapse—constitutes incontrovertible proof that the Twin Towers and WTC 7 were destroyed by controlled demolition using pre-placed explosives.

Officials from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) admitted they did not even look for evidence of explosives and have refused to consider such evidence when confronted with it. A grand jury made up of ordinary citizens deserves to see this evidence and conduct a full investigation wherever it may lead.

It is time for the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan to present this evidence to a grand jury and start a serious criminal investigation into the use of explosives at the WTC; the evidence is too compelling to be ignored. The victims of 9/11 and their families, the City of New York, and our nation deserve a proper grand jury investigation.

The Petition and the evidence are available to the public at www.lcfor911.org. Visit the site and see it for yourself, and share the link. You can also donate to the Lawyers’ Committee and sign the petition online.

      This is an excellent article and I am quite happy to see it and thank you for posting it!! Very thoughtful article and I would definitely like to see a new investigation into 9/11, and until New Yorkers get mad, I doubt new investigations will come forward. I have not understood why New Yorkers are not madder than they have been because it was New Yorkers are the ones that died.

      This is groundbreaking news, And must not be ignored. It makes you think though, the evidence was presented to the public in April and this is the first article about surfacing in June. Where is the mass media coverage on such a serious situation ?
      If this incident was possible of happening and being covered for nearly 2 decades what else could be being kept secret from the people ?
      This article is greatly appreciated, coming from a New York Resident. Although, the thought that comes to mind now is, is anyone safe ? The Grand Jury has to give some sort of effort for the sake of the families who’ve lost loved ones. It’d be a shame otherwise.

      Thank you to the West View News for having the integrity and patriotism and love for the 1st Amendment to publish this vital epic story and landmark legal action that should be Front Page News and on every news talk show. The fact that is it not is proof positive that our 1st Amendment is trashed. The Constitution can not function without it, that is why it is first. I request that all the West View News Staff do the research and read the Petition and watch the 57 exhibits via the hyperlinks on the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry website and see if you don’t agree that a criminal investigation is very long overdue. We need you to do the hard research please and report it so our nation can heal and the wars blamed on 9/11 stop and the real criminals exposed and punished. This lie can not be our History and it is your responsibility to do your due diligence please. Explosives were all we saw, heard and felt that day. We grew up watching casinos being demolished, this is the same. I am a retired teacher and have taught science classes. I know that physics did not stop that day as the official story would have us believe. The ground-zero earth had temperatures upwards of 4000 degrees into December.What does that? Not jet fuel which is kerosene burns off fast and not hot enough to melt steel as was reported by the firemen running down the channel wells “like lava”. Listen to the firemen explain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTKyyzxbBCI&t=389s Bobby Mcllvaine was blown apart in the lobby of the North Tower before any aircraft hit. Those buildings were made to withstand multiple jet hits. Never before in history has the official story been fire for making steel buildings collapse in under 10 seconds. They have burned for days and still the steel frame stands. They made fools of us all. Body parts were blown across town and found months later. Fire can’t do that. Over 1500 people were not accounted for at all not even DNA. Pulverization occurred from obvious massive explosions. Many Americans are still ignorant that a 3rd building fell that day at 5:20 P.M. The 47 story Soloman Building Seven, not hit by an aircraft and the BBC reported it as collapsed 20 minutes too soon, it’s still standing behind the reporter in the live feed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=677i43QfYpQ This proves prior knowledge and control of the press. Yes it is hard to conceive of the implications of the quite obvious explosions, not fires that took down New York. Remember the paper flying everywhere? Fire burns paper. A Bomber hit the Empire State Building in 1945, lost in fog filled with fuel. The wings sheared off and fell to the sidewalk. Part of the plane was stuck in the building and part stuck out. They put out the fuel fire in 45 minutes, the beams did not heat up to melt or bend, the Empire State Building was open the next day and is still standing, 14 people died. Compare. Use logic. Newton’s Third Law of Physics just is, it did not stop on 9/11. Freefall occurred because the beams were demolished at the same time, this is how controlled demolitions occur as any 4th grade student can compare. Americans need to have the courage to see and admit the truth, just as they expect our soldiers to have courage, we civilians must as well. Those criminals are still very much in charge, they did not just go away and we must save our Republic by having the courage as a Nation to demand this investigation be open, public and not in anyway controlled by the government. A Grand Jury is 23 people like you and I and a prosecutor. Those explosions have a lot of explaining to do. This Grand Jury can serve to drain the swamp like a whirlpool and restore our Constitutional Rights and Bill of Rights that have been violated since 9/11 and restore Yankee White Clearance of the 1940 Nationality Act Security code demanding only 100% U.S.Citizens can hold Govt positions. We have over 20 post 9/11 war veterans committing suicide each day and it has to stop. No more wars. The Atomic Clock is now 2-minutes to midnight, moved when this new puppet president was elected and not since the Cold War. Midnight is total nuclear destruction of Earth. Americans need to be involved, have courage and use the critical thinking skills the good Lord gave them, and cure their cognitive dissonance that their Uncle Sam would not do such a thing. The CIA presented the Northwoods Plan/ Operation Mongoose to JFK to paint ships and planes to look like Cuba’s and attack Florida and kill Americans, and bomb our own ships to blame Cuba so Americans would support a war with Cuba. JFK refused. So if you do not believe the U.S. does not plan False Flag attacks then you need to read the Northwoods Plan. In 2013 Professor Lance Dehaven-Smith in a peer-reviewed book published by the University of Texas Press showed that the term “conspiracy theory” was developed by the CIA as a means of undercutting critics of the Warren Commission’s report that President Kennedy was killed by Oswald. The use of this term was heavily promoted in the media by the CIA. A ‘Conspiracy’ is when more than one person commits a crime, so most crimes are conspiracies. It is important to use the term correctly. I do not believe the Government’s Conspiracy Theory and I support this Grand Jury Petition and the families and truth and justice and the Peace that it will bring. Please have the courage to be as Patriotic as I am and do the same. United We Stand has never meant so much. Thank you for this opportunity to communicate.

      The mass media does what government wants. Have you not figured this out, yet? Mass media has no interest in 9/11 other than demonizing anyone who contests the dumb narrative offered by the Commission and public servants.

      Did you know WTC7 fell at free fall speed for 2.5 seconds ? Did you know a High School physics teacher forced NIST to change their original pancake collapse theory ‘ to his free fall theory ? Did you know the only way for WTC7 to have fallen at free fall speed was for all 82 support columns to have failed within milliseconds of one another ? Did you know the only way for all 82 columns to fail simultaneously was ‘ every column had to be wired with explosives ? Did you know WTC7 was one of the most secure buildings in the world . Did you know that the highly controlled explosive nnanothermite

      While most of the evidence cited is very strong, the one area which is not strong is the belief that seismic evidence shows anything supporting explosions in the basements before the planes hit the building.

      “seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts on the towers, and prior to the building collapses”

      The refutations of these claims can be found at websites that have long worked to expose strong evidence that the 9/11 attacks involved US insiders and that the towers were deliberately destroyed with explosive thermitic material. See 9-11 Research and 911review.com.

      Congratulations to Westview News for taking the bold step in reporting on a petition for a Grand Jury investigation into what is arguably the most consequential story of our time – the substantial body of evidence of what actually brought World Trade Towers 1, 2, and 7 down. We’ve all seen footage of old hotels or stadiums being razed to the ground with controlled demolition charges. There are several markers which identify such actions such as sudden onset of collapse, sounds and sights of explosions, lateral ejections known as “squibs” down the side of the building, large “pyroclastic” dust clouds, cutting of steel beams to certain lengths, and vertical collapse into the building’s own footprint. These markers are all applicable to Towers 1, 2 and 7. While there were fires, they were small and going out. The buildings were built to withstand the impact of commercial aircraft, according to construction manager, Frank Demartini. With all these factors present, there is no other explanation. For those who still think this information is unfounded, there are over 3,000 professional architects and engineers who have signed a petition at ae911truth.org who are on record refuting the official “fire theory” and the “amateur Arab pilots did it conspiracy theory”. You can depend on your own eyes. Just look at the tops of Tower 1 and 2 as they blow off in an upward and outward motion, asking yourself “does gravity do this?” Look at the collapse of WTC7 with basically zero resistance occurring simultaneously floor by floor. Getting to how it was done and by whom, this is why a criminal investigation is warranted. It is unacceptable that such a body of research by expert sources exists and has yet to be included in an official investigation or legal action. Just as important, as a culture we must come to terms with the fact that just as we’ve been lied to about reasons for wars, yes, our government and mainstream media has lied to us about what really occurred on 9/11. As a culture, we’ve even allowed the crimes of removal and destruction of evidence, as well as cover ups, to take place without retribution. Consider the cost. The tragedy of war including human loss and trillions of dollars, erosion of Constitutional liberties, destabilization of the Middle East, and a government and media under siege of an agenda for global empire can best be reconciled by demanding full scale truth, accountability, and justice for the defining event of our times. We can only hope other media will follow the example of Westview News.

      Editor, Westfield News, I commend you for publishing the article by Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquire. It is important for the public to be aware of the evidence explosions provided the means to bring down the three World Trade Center high-rise buildings. A Federal Grand Jury to investigate the use of explosives on September 11, 2001, is the right action to bring this evidence of treasonous acts to the point where a Federal trial may begin.

      Try to imagine hiring two experienced pilots to crash airplanes into two skyscrapers. Imagine further telling the pilots that the two crashes must also bring down a third nearby skyscraper. If you’re having difficulty seeing how your pilots might make that happen, then you should consider supporting the lawyers’ petition have a grand jury assess what really happened on 9/11..

      I had my awakening about the government lying about 9/11 in March, 2006. I appreciate Westview News for publishing their article. For someone interested in the falsification of the corporate media’s presentation, particularly with regard to WTC 7, I would suggest Googling: solving the mystery of wtc 7 and then clicking on Ed Asner’s picture. It is a 15 minute presentation by 3000 architects and engineers about what really happened on 9/11.

      Thank you, George and WestView for publishing this piece. It’s never been done before: that a group of 60-70 lawyers self-organize, nation-wide and challenge one of the bloodiest myths of American society. This action shakes the country to its core. We must move beyond a society based on lies, propaganda and braggadocio, and into a time of awareness, compassion and caring.
      The truth movement leads the way.

      The science is in after 10 years of expert analysis and forensic evidence. Diligent honest work by uncompromised (by political or economic entanglements) work by physicists, architects, chemists and engineers has proven conclusively that:
      1. The government’s narrative is not only incomplete, it is full of lies and obfuscations. It also defies the laws of physics
      2. All 3 buildings were brought down by highly sophisticated explosives, inaccessible to ordinary criminals
      3. Evidence of the crimes was immediately removed
      4. Eyewitness testimony that contradicted the “official” version was ignored, including that of on-the-scene firefighters who managed to survive

      Fifty-some years ago, in US Air Force basic training, we recruits were all instructed that our air defense is on continuous alert, with fighter pilots standing by on flight lines across the country to respond to any errant aircraft presenting a potential threat within our borders. Our supersonic jets can be in the air within seconds and can intercept any intruder in less then five minutes. But not on September 11, 2001. I’m sure I’m not the only ex-airman that noticed the problem on that day. Thanks for this succinct but very informative article suggesting how and why such a thing could have happened.

      Kudos to West View News for having the courage to report more than same ole same ole approved mainstream news. Nice to see honest reporting isn’t just for independents. Seemingly at risk of sullying a reputation, this could be the beginning of a new trend for news orgs and a badge of honor. 911 is like so many conspiracy theories that initially seem ridiculous…until you begin to look into them and realize there are many suspiciously unanswered questions. Doing just a small amount of research will yield an uncomfortable realization that the official story has aspects that do not make sense and feel like force fit conclusions lacking the usual due process of law and physics. Once you get beyond “they wouldn’t do that to us” mentality, the questions and seemingly overlooked details in the official investigation take on a life of their own. Why World Trade Center 7 is not mentioned in the official report and why it even came down, is a good place to start…for unraveling the official fairytale.

      Congratulations to WestView for running this story. So often important stories get squashed, like the revelation of how the atomic bomb program was intertwined with the push for water fluoridation. The New York Times accepted the story by Joel Griffiths and Christopher Bryson, proceeded to edit it and then at the last minute killed the story. It eventually made it into print as part of a book called “The Fluoride Deception” by Christopher Bryson, 2004, Seven Stories Press, which got a very favorable review in Publisher’s Weekly.

      Correction to my comment above. The Times did look at the story, but it was the Christian Science Monitor that accepted it, but later rejected it according to one of the authors (Mr. Griffiths).

      My humble greetings to the WestViewNews and all New Yorkers from the most happy country in the world, Finland, Europe.
      It is vitally important for the whole world properly and thoroughly to investigate the explosive evidence of what really happened 11.9.2001 in New York.

      Hi again! My supporting comment from Finland Europe, the happiest country on earth was removed? The happy-factor is true: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/mar/14/finland-happiest-country-world-un-report.

      So again: I myself from Europe will 100% support the first real investigation of 911 just like Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry suggests. I also hope all the best for this informative newspaper having the guts (“sisu” in finnish language – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisu) to publish this vitally important petition request.

      Dear New Yorkers, A great big bunch of us love you. We are pressing on for justice for you. One by one, each of us was shaken to the core when we learned the truth. You wake up all innocent to the morning light, and suddenly the facts jump out at you again and you feel woozy. You move through stages of grief, then pull it together and start getting useful because you recognize time is short. They didn’t just lie to all of us, about everything, they dropped a curtain of darkness over our country and over the whole world. So please let’s work together quickly to pull back that curtain, and let the sun shine again across clear blue skies. Standing with you, New York.

      Congratulations to the publisher for having the courage to print this. On the other hand, why should I have to congratulate a publisher for doing their job? It is because almost everywhere in the news media today views that deviate from the mainstream, or perceived mainstream are automatically treated as suspect and likely crazy and labeled as conspiracy theory. So, Congratulations! I applaud you.
