Censored by The Huffington Post: “What Really Happened on September 11th?” – II

It’s worth noting that Huffington Post while censoring this piece by Ventura already ran an excerpt from another chapter of American Conspiracies, about the US “war on drugs,” and they had no problem with that subject.



Here now is a brief from Prisonplanet.com on Ventura’s disputed article:

As I noted in an item yesterday, Jesse Ventura has a new book out, co-authored with Dick Russell, called American Conspiracies, which includes an excellent chapter on election fraud and its connection to the likely murder of Mike Connell.

Well, this morning, Jesse had a front-page piece on 9/11 up at HuffPost: a front-page piece that quickly slipped off that front page–and then completely disappeared.

Here’s what you’ll find there now (or will, until they take that down as well):

All that’s up there now are the comments left by 65 of HuffPost’s readers.

It’s worth noting that HuffPost already ran an excerpt from another chapter of American Conspiracies, about the US “war on drugs,” and they had no problem with that subject.

But this one is, as we all know, taboo. Clearly, even to question the official story of 9/11 is to engage in “conspiracy theories” (as if the official story weren’t itself a “conspiracy theory,” and a preposterous one at that).

Such is always the response of the US mainstream media (the foreign media tends to be more open-minded)–and it’s also the response of our left/liberal media, as this amazing act of censorship makes clear.

So here is the offending piece. Please read it; and let’s all try to locate the particular points that are so obviously wild and baseless that HuffPost had to kill the whole piece instantly…

You didn’t see anything about it in the mainstream media, but two weeks ago at a conference in San Francisco, more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.

That’s right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy – because they don’t buy the government’s version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible – or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the Twin Towers and Building 7.

Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, put it like this: “The official Federal Emergency Management [Agency] and National Institute of Standards and Technology reports provide insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction.” He’s especially disturbed by Building 7, whose 47 stories came down in “pure free-fall acceleration” that afternoon – even though it was never hit by an aircraft.

This is a subject I take up in my new book, American Conspiracies, published this week by Skyhorse.   An excerpt follows:

Some people have argued that the twin towers went down, within a half hour of one another, because of the way they were constructed. Well, those 425,000 cubic yards of concrete and 200,000 tons of steel were designed to hold up against a Boeing 707, the largest plane built at the time the towers were completed in 1973. Analysis had shown that a 707 traveling at 600 miles an hour (and those had four engines) would not cause major damage. The twin-engine Boeing 757s that hit on 9/11 were going 440 and 550 miles an hour.

Still, we are told that a molten, highly intense fuel mixture from the planes brought down these two steel-framed skyscrapers. Keep in mind that no other such skyscraper in history had ever been known to collapse completely due to fire damage. So could it actually have been the result of a controlled demolition from inside the buildings? I don’t claim expertise about this, but I did work four years as part of the Navy’s underwater demolition teams, where we were trained to blow things to hell and high water.

And my staff talked at some length with a prominent physicist, Steven E. Jones, who says that a “gravity driven collapse” without demolition charges defies the laws of physics. These buildings fell, at nearly the rate of free-fall, straight down into their own footprint, in approximately ten seconds. An object dropped from the roof of the 110-story-tall towers would reach the ground in about 9.2 seconds. Then there’s the fact that steel beams that weighed as much as 200,000 pounds got tossed laterally as far as 500 feet.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) started its investigation on August 21, 2002.  When their 10,000-page-long report came out three years later, the spokesman said there was no evidence to suggest a controlled demolition. But Steven E. Jones also says that molten metal found underground weeks later is proof that jet fuel couldn’t have been all that was responsible. I visited the site about three weeks after 9/11, with Governor Pataki and my wife Terry.  It didn’t mean anything to me at the time, but they had to suspend digging that day because they were running into heat pockets of huge temperatures. These fires kept burning for more than three months, the longest-burning structure blaze ever. And this was all due to jet fuel? We’re talking molten metal more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Probably the most conclusive evidence about a controlled demolition is a research paper (two years, nine authors) published in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal, in April 2009. In studying dust samples from the site, these scientists found chips of nano-thermite, which is a high-tech incendiary/explosive. Here’s what the paper’s lead author, Dr. Niels Harrit of the University of Copenhagen’s chemistry department, had to say about the explosive that he’s convinced brought down the Twin Towers and the nearby Building 7:

“Thermite itself dates back to 1893. It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat. The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 degrees Centigrade. This can be used to do welding. It can also be used to melt other iron.  So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed. When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly. Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive. It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.”

Richard Gage is one of hundreds of credentialed architects and structural engineers who have put their careers on the line to point out the detailed anomalies and many implications of controlled demolition in the building collapses. As he puts it bluntly: “Once you get to the science, it’s indisputable.”

THE END. Below is once again the response that the HuffPost put up after censoring the article and as of today, the 24th March 2010 it still stands so.

  1. Let’s not forget that on March 15th, 2010, Dr. Alan Saborsky the former Director of Studies at the US Army War College and whose mother is Jewish went on record and admitted publicly that Israel and the Mossad were behind the events of 9/11. That this was a False Flag event perpetrated by Israel, NOT MUSLIMS.

    Further, he stated that ALL the US military brass know about this, they are shocked and enraged.

    I would also like to point out that this has NOT been carried by ONE SINGLE US mainstream publication or television station but it’s been carried by Gordon Duff’s Veteran’s Today web site and many, many private blogs in the US.

    I am one pissed off American.

    When asked by Gordon Duff what we might expect Saborsky was quick to reply, “War with Iran.”

    Now what does all of this say for US/Israeli relations?

    It says that Israel, in cold blood, can murder almost 3,000 American citizens and get away with it.

    It says that Israel can be directly responsible for the death of 5,000 US military personnel in Iraq and get away with it.

    It says that Israel can be directly responsible for the death of 1.2 million Iraqi’s and get away with it.

    It says that this whole War On Terror is a fraud so that the NeoCon/Zionist military machine can realize trillions of dollars in profit while vilifying Muslim’s all over the globe.

    It says we are ALL living a LIE.

  2. You are aware that this man is a COMPLETE idiot. His program is a joke/entertainment not to be taken seriously. Please tell me you are aware of that.

    Dreaming up fantastical conspiracies is NOT the solution. It is the continuation of our collective problems.

    This is a terrible case of confirmation bias where one only looks for perceived ‘facts’ that support their delusion but never actual facts that don’t.

  3. Who’s an idiot? The person that hasn’t read the history of the CIA, the history of Mossad, the history of covert operations responsible for 3 million heroin addicts in Iran and a million more in Russia, or the person that believes the governments lies?

    Who’s an idiot? The people that were soldiers on the USS Liberty that claim the attack was purposeful?

    Who’s an idiot? The FBI/CIA agent, John O’Neill who claimed Israel attacked the USS Cole with a Popeye missile?

    Who’s an idiot? The physicists that found nano-thermate in the World Trade Center dust at 4 different locations?

    Or you?

  4. Why would the former president of Italy, Fransesco Cossiga and Hamad Gul, the former General and Chief of Pakistan ISI, and Dr. Alan Sabrosky, the former Director of Studies at the US Army War College, all of whom speak different languages and represent very different countries all say the same thing? Why is that?

    There are millions of people globally that believe 9/11 was a covert intelligence conspiracy and the evidence proves that’s so. The World 9/11 Truth convention is in Montreal this month. You should attend.

    I think you’re the idiot.

  5. As if it was almost by design, Mr. Jeff confirms his confirmation bias.

    “all of whom speak different languages and represent very different countries all say the same thing? Why is that?”

    How about THOUSANDS of equally qualified experts of various ethnicity that disagree with your conspiracy theories?

    Don’t just assume that you are the only one that reads history books. The rest of us read them as well. We just don’t make lunatic, unsubstantiated, illogical conclusions.

    By the way, I was referring to Jesse Ventura as an Idiot not you.

    This post was written for a Muslim audience but I think it applies to you as well:

  6. The above comments are unfortunate out puts from the so called intellectual circle of our societies evolved in different countries .It clearly indicates that uncirtainity if deliberatly allowed to get percolated in the society then I am sure that more loss of life will take place in near future .So gentlemen try to give a constructive turn to the on going war ..The win-win situation is hard to achieve ,but that situation will finally emerge as an only solution to the present mess….

  7. What is unfortunate is the mentality of those commenting here.

    It was almost 50 years before the public understood that the USS Liberty was purposely attacked by the Israeli’s and because of that fact alone, that the voting adult public wasn’t even alive when this happened, it’s vital importance has fallen through the cracks of history.

    It’s been 56 years since the Gulf Of Tonkin incident that created the climate for the Vietnamese War to start and only now do we understand that we were NOT attacked and that President Johnson lied to allow public opinion to support the war.

    Only now, after more then 70 years do we understand how the Lusitania was used to usher in public support for World War II.

    Only now, after more then 65 years do we fully understand that the atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were dropped not to end the war but to prove we had them and would use them.

    And only now, after more then 65 years do we understand that we had advance warning of the attack on Pearl Harbor and we allowed that attack to happen to prepare the way to drop the atom bombs.

    Only now has Operation Gladio and Operation Northwoods been exposed. Only now has MK Ultra and Operation Paperclip been exposed.

    No. 1100 Architects and Engineers aren’t wrong. This was a False Flag Operation to usher in a false war on terror.

    Islamic Extremism was developed by the CIA and Mossad in the early 70s using texts designed and printed by the CIA and Mossad in madrassas built and financed by the CIA and Mossad to fight Soviet Communism. It is YOU who are ignorant, only you.

    It’s the people like yourselves that are blinded by propaganda, who watch television, who read newspapers and listen to pundits that are the idiots.

    Turn off your television. Use the internet. Find the truth to your lives or perish in ignorance.

    There is no excuse for ignorance.

  8. Ok jeff, you have a monopoly on knowledge. you are a one-man library of alexandria.
    You have 1000 architects, what about 100,000 architects that disagree with your position?
    As soon as ONE theory is shredded, you respond with a dozen others..
    I don’t have the time to prove the moon landing was real. So I will just heed your advice. Turn off TV, close books and listen to expert sources such as ALEX JONES and geniuses such as JESSE VENTURA!

    Brother Tewari, as long as we blame worldwide Islamic extremism on a Zionist plot, we will continue to fail as a civilization. I love the tourism postings on your blog. I have bookmarked your blog.



  9. Gentleman, here is what you are arguing against:

    1,162 Engineers and Architects

    400+ Professors

    400+ Medical Professionals

    300+ 9/11 Survivors and Family Members

    250+ Pilots and Aviation Professionals

    200+ Artists, Entertainers, and Media Professionals

    200+ Senior Military, Intelligence Service, Law enforcement,and Government Officials

    The Entire 9/11 Commission Board.

    40% Of Americans

    And 1/2 of the rest of the planet

    Believe 9/11 was either an inside job, or they new about it, and did nothing for the sake of going to war. The debunkers can say all they want. You cant disprove the laws of physics.

    Letter to special prosecutor John Durham by one of those professionals:

    Department of Justice
    United States of America
    950 Pennsylvania Ave NWWashington, D.C. 20530

    RE: Prima Facie Evidence that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld Committed Treason on 9/11

    Special Prosecutor John Durham:

    Urging you to address the issue of the law of treason and constitutional accountability for the events of September 11, 2001.

    There is a sufficient legal threshold of evidence to issue an indictment for the crime of Treason against the above-named individuals under the US Constitution, which in Article III(3) provides: “Sect. 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on open confession in open court.”

    Prima facie evidence that the named individuals—U.S. President George W. Bush, U.S. Vice President Richard B. Cheney, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld—and other John and Jane Does are independently and jointly guilty of Treason against these United States under Article III(3) of the U.S. Constitution, because:

    The attacks of 9/11, as portrayed in the official account, could not have succeeded if standard operating procedures between the FAA and NORAD had been followed. The Pentagon, under the leadership of Donald Rumsfeld, has provided three mutually inconsistent accounts of NORAD’s response, which means that at least two of them are false.

    Moreover, the third account, articulated by the 9/11 Commission, is contradicted by a wide range of facts, including evidence that the FAA had notified NORAD in a timely fashion. There must have been stand-down orders, and these could have come only from the highest levels of the Pentagon and the White House.

    Overwhelming evidence exists that the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were instances of controlled demolition. But al-Qaeda operatives could not have obtained the needed access to the buildings to plant the explosives and would not have ensured that the buildings come straight down. The controlled demolition, therefore, had to be the work of insiders. That President Bush was one of those insiders is suggested by the fact that his brother and cousin were principals in the company in charge of WTC security. Complicity at the highest levels of the federal government is also indicated by the removal of evidence (the collapsed steel), which is normally a federal offense.

    If the airplane strikes could have occurred only with the consent of the president and the secretary of defense (as suggested in the previous point), the coordination of these strikes with the demolition of the buildings implies their involvement in the latter as well.

    Overwhelming evidence also exists for the conclusion that the attack on the Pentagon was an inside job. That the official story could not be true is evident from many facts: Hani Hanjour’s incompetence; the choice of the west wing as the target; the impossibility of a commercial airliner’s coming back to Washington undetected and hitting the Pentagon unless permitted; and the lack of physical evidence consistent with an attack by a Boeing 757. That the strike was an inside job is implied by the falsity of the official story, the evidence that the strike was made by a military aircraft, the removal of evidence, and the government’s refusal to release videos of the strike. This operation could hardly have been planned without the involvement of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld.

    Complicity at the highest levels of the federal government is also indicated by President Bush’s remaining at the school after it was evident—given the truth of the official account—that the United States was experiencing a surprise attack. This behavior makes sense only if Bush and his lead Secret Service agent knew that there would be no attack on the school.

    The complicity of Vice President Cheney in the attack on the Pentagon and the downing of Flight 93 is implied by the testimony of Secretary Mineta in conjunction with the false claims of the 9/11 Commission, under the guidance of administration insider Philip Zelikow, as to when Cheney went to the PEOC and when he issued the shoot-down authorization.

    The conclusion from the evidence that members of the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks of 9/11 is reinforced by the fact that they had some huge projects— prosecuting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and obtaining funding to accelerate the technological transformation of the military—that would likely be possible only in the event of “a new Pearl Harbor.”


    On the basis of this and other evidence, the conclusion that the Bush-Cheney administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks has been reached by many Americans, (myself included)including intellectuals and former military officers.

    Gentleman, YOU ARE IDIOTS.

  10. We landed on the moon. Why do you propose one might think otherwise? Because you’re incapable of standing behind you’re argument with factual data? Explain the nano-thermate. Explain that to me. Tell me where Muslim extremists got nano-thermate and how they planted it in the buildings. Please.

  11. And please, show me 100,000 architects opposed. Show me the group. There isn’t one. That’s because most architects agree but only just over 1,000 have decided to voice public opinions because the mainstream press, and people such as yourself vilify the truth. That the CIA, Mossad and NeoCons were the only people even capable of these vastly complicated events are obvious and you are a laughable fellow.

  12. @ Jeff ,Perhaps your age is above eighty and the constructive phase of your life is now over so before leaving this world you are intending to spoil all those things which you could not enjoy in your youth phase by creating confusion among us .I can only express my sympathy for you and nothing else.

  13. No confusion, only the truth, even if it hurts.

    The CIA, Mossad and the NeoCons were responsible for 9/11. That’s just the facts. The truth. Even if some people are afraid to believe it.

  14. @ Mr. Mirza .This B.S. Blog claim to be ment for culture and history but in fact it gives exposure to those article which exclusively and indirectly support the stands of terrorists .There are many people in the world who think Pundits are ideots but they dont know that It is the Pundits who rule the world.rest are just to follow their orders .The number of Pundits is less than 2% but they have potential to rotate the wheel of the world . Those who hate them are liable to be eliminated or will be allowed just to bark like a dog …Mr. .Mirza we have to identify such people and expose their real intensions ..

  15. My only intention is to seek the truth. Nothing more, because nothing else matters. Eliminate me and there will be 100 more behind me. You can’t prevent the truth, ever.

  16. That’s not true. There may be people that would like it to be a relative term but certain truths are true no matter who you are or where you stand.

  17. According to you the attack on Pearl harbore was allowed to happen so that the use of atom bomb could be justified .If it is a fact then why people of America remain calm and quite after knowing the fact and why not a total bycott of America have been done by the world community..Dear Jeff try to realize the intension behind the conspiracy hypothesis .These people wants to create confusion so that the present solidarity of world community against the terrorists and nonstate actors could be fractured . In this age of information and communication such people will be the real loosers .

  18. 50 years after Pearl Harbor the communications between the players have become available. Notes, diaries and other data are available. The facts are clear. These aren’t conspiracy theories, they’re facts. I can’t change the facts.

  19. @ Dr, Tewari & Mr. Mirza Usman,
    While putting up your comments, please note our comments policy. I reproduce some salient features of this policy once again for your information.
    We might block such comments / discussions that are indecent, inflammatory, slanderous, or uncivil. If all you wish is to pick a fight, please do it elsewhere. If you want to have a reasoned, reasonable and civil discussion, you are most welcome.
    Personal attacks and abusive language for anyone including our writers as well as fellow readers is not allowed. Flamers beware! Please do not try to ‘bait’ people into arguments just for the sake of controversy. Your opinions are your opinions and you have a right to them, but attributing statements and names to others is not appreciable hence not allowed. WoP retains the right to edit or block submissions considered inflammatory or uncivil. Although publicly open, this is a privately-run blog and WoP reserves the right to remove entire comments or portions of comments that do not reflect these requirements.
    All opinions–including contrary opinions–are always welcome and appreciated when stated civilly.

    We realize that some issues ignite passions. If they do, we suggest that you (a) write the post, (b) take a deep breath 15 times, (c) drink a glass of cold water, (d) re-read your post and edit out any inappropriate language, and then (e) post your comments. This will spare you the embarrassment and us the effort of having to blank out offensive words from your post.
    And now coming back to your views about Twin Towers, you have every right to hold to your views [You believe what u wish to believe and that’s your democratic right but you cannot force your opinions on others. You feel that Jeff has one sided opinion but dear me both of you have an opinion which you wish others must believe. Let’s be rational. On 9/11 what the mainstream media has projected as truth and nothing but truth is a BIG LIE. [As said, you may go on believing in this ‘truth’ umpteen times, a truth that has been manufactured in the labs of mainstream media but I have my democratic right to believe what I take as the real truth. Similarly Jeff has his own right to believe what he thinks is correct. To dub somebody as an idiot or false is against the norms of decency not only at discussion forums but also in a verbal discourse. And Dear Dr. Tewari, I take it as a big compliment when you call WoP as B.S. blog. FYI our B.S. has 300% more viewers than last year].
    Once again dear friends, please do not forget that Nazi dictator [Hitler] too used the BIG LIE to create his grand third Reich that would last for 1000 years. At the dawn of a new century and a new millennium, the Neocons used and still are using this to usher our world into a Grand NEW World Order using again the BIG LIE [My blogger friend HK aptly calls this as a Geoplotical NWO].

    ‘Facts’ and ‘truths’ based on mere propaganda have short life. In the 1940’s, the Nazi propaganda machine no doubt was able to cast a magic spell over German masses but even in those days there were people who did not agree with Dr. Goebbel’s BIG LIE.
    In today’s world too, there are many people who do not agree with the BIG LIE of the Neocons, [nurtured by Bush senior and the junior, unfortunately many of whom are sitting in president Obama’s White House as well].
    P.S. Sorry Jeff, I am out of my office for a week which is why I have not been able to moderate those indecent attributes much earlier.

  20. @Nayyer Hashmey,

    My sincere apologies. I was utterly confused by this blog. I thought this blog was about Pakistani tourism. It is not. I thought Dr. Tewari was the author of this blog. He is not. I thought Dr. Tewari was a voice of reason. He appears to be a very angry Indian. I called him “brother”. He is probably even angrier now. I though Jeff Preger was joking. He was not.


  21. I was also amazed to note that after a long time I came across a reformist who can think beyond the religious quaranic limitations among the muslims. Mr. Usman it is not only you who is confused but it apears to me that each and every member of your beloved Ummah is confused that is why the baseless thoughts of some people impress most of them a lot .Your clear remark on conspiracy hypothesis had given me an impression that you could be a rare species among the muslims but you too are real brother of Dr. Hashmay.Let me be an angry Indian .

  22. ALL people are good, peaceful and humanitarian by nature.

    We are not our government and our government is not us.

    Only governments and hierarchies fight wars. Individual people would prefer not to if given the choice.

  23. There is nothing new under the sun. We must wallow in our corruption until the end of the age. What a wild ride. When I was ten, and the neighbor busted into the front door without knocking saying we were at war with Japan, even then at that young age, it did not ring true.

    1. Bob, THEN, it didn’t ring true, even now when you are at war with Afghanistan, it will not ring true for its not the US fighting the war, its our mercenary state called Pakistan that offers its sons to be sacrificed on the altar of US imperialist interests so that our men in power [but it doesn’t by any means exclude our women in power too] can muster enough dollars to fatten their coiffeurs which are already fattened to the extent of getting busted.

  24. I’ve been working with a group that is fed up with the ridiculous censorship at the Huffington Post. We have a petition you can sign. Every time someone signs the form letter at the bottom of the page gets automatically sent to the Huffington Post (you will receive a form letter email reply). You can customize that email if you want. The petition is here:


    We also have a blog that documents some of the most outrageous examples of censorship:
