"At 8:46:30 a.m., five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 11 (AA
11) with 11 crew and 76 passengers into the north face of WTC 1," according
to the Final Report on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers
produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in
"The fuselage was centered on the 96th floor slab and filled the 95th and
96th floors top to bottom," the NIST report says.
|The aircraft flew almost straight toward the north tower, banked approximately
25 degrees to the left (i.e. the right wing elevated relative to the left
wing) and descended at an angle of about 10 degrees at impact.
Moving at about 440 mph, the nose hit the exterior of the tower at the
96th floor. The aircraft cut a gash that was over half the width
of the building and extended from the 93rd floor to the 99th floor.
All but the lowest of these floors were occupied by Marsh & McLennan,
a worldwide insurance company, which also occupied the 100th floor.
So, what was on the 95th and 96th floors of the north tower, which were
rented by Marsh & McLennan, Lewis Paul "Jerry" Bremer's company?
it should be noted, was the Bush-appointed proconsul or administrator of
occupied Iraq until the end of June 2004. During Bremer's reign there
was no metering of the oil that was exported from Iraq.
It is also primarily decisions taken by Bremer that are responsible
for the misery and chaos that have afflicted Iraq since the U.S.-led occupation
began. Previously, Bremer was the right-hand man for Henry Kissinger
The NIST report provides some information about "General Description
of Tenant Layout." For the floors in question it says, "Generally
open space filled with workstations. Offices, conference rooms, and
work areas in exterior corners."
But on the 95th floor, Marsh & McLennan had a "large walled data
center along north and east sides," according to the NIST report.
And that's exactly where the plane hit – the north wall of the 95th floor.
I called Marsh & McLennan to get a better idea of what was in this
"large walled data center" into which American Airlines Flight 11 plunged
with deadly precision.
Reginald McQuay came on the line as a company spokesman. I told
McQuay that Marsh & McLennan got hit broadside on 9/11 and that it
appeared that the plane flew straight into their "walled data center,"
according to the NIST report.
"No," McQuay said, "it wasn't really our data center. It was our
computer center." Then he suddenly became somewhat distressed, saying
he could not even focus on what I was saying and that I should call back
Fair enough, I thought. He had confirmed my primary suspicion,
i.e. that the plane that struck the north tower appears to have been "homed
in" or targeted on a secure computer center on the 95th floor – exactly
like the plane that struck the south tower some 16 minutes later.
"Sixteen and a half minutes after the first impact, five hijackers flew
United Airlines (UA) Flight 175, with 9 crew and 51 passengers, into WTC
2 at about 540 mph, about 100 mph faster than AA Flight 11," the NIST report
center of the nose of the plane struck at the 81st floor slab. The
plane was banked 38 degrees to the left (right wing upward) and was heading
slightly (6 degrees) downward from the horizontal," it says.
Although Flight 175 went straight into the 81st floor of the south tower,
the NIST report provides no description of what was on the 81st floor.
Not even one word. How odd.
While we know that the Fuji Bank was the tenant on floors 79-82 of WTC
2, the NIST report fails to describe the "tenant layout" of floors 79,
81, and 82.
I had repeatedly requested information from NIST about the layout of
these floors, primarily because many tons of molten metal were seen falling
from the 81st floor prior to the collapse.
source of the large amount of molten metal on the 81st floor had not been
explained. What could have possibly melted in such large amounts
on a normal floor to create several cubic meters of molten metal?
You can watch the molten iron in both normal and slow
motion at youtube:
The same video is here in WMV format:
If this was molten iron, as Professor Steven E. Jones of Brigham Young
University says, and if this molten iron was caused by an aluminothermic
reaction of Thermite or Thermate (a steel-cutting explosive created from
powdered aluminum, iron oxide, and sulfur), then somebody must have pre-loaded
the 81st floor of WTC 2 with many tons of Thermate.
The molten metal seen falling from the 81st floor was not aluminum,
as the NIST report suggests, because molten aluminum would appear silverfish-grey
in daylight conditions.

The metal that is seen falling from the burning south tower is clearly
yellow and white hot. This is much hotter than the fires that were
observed. So, what produced such large amounts of extremely hot molten
metal on the 81st floor of WTC 2?
The aluminum oxide that is produced in the Thermite or Thermate reaction
is a whitish smoke. White smoke was seen coming from the 81st floor
prior to each flow of molten metal, according to the NIST report, and large
amounts of white smoke are seen prior to and during the collapse of each
tower. Was this drywall dust or was this Thermite?
