Herr der Elf : Motivation for 9/11
The energy requirements of content pulverization are massive and were observable from the first few seconds of the towers' demise. The logistics of carrying this out using conventional explosives and even super-duper nano-thermite is both massive and risky. Why bother, if you've got deep pockets, an arsensal of exotic weapons, and generals & majors literally dying to push the button?
I've read Dr. Wood's textbook and highly recommend it. Its weakness is also its strength in providing data points and few connecting trend lines. The energy questions that she brings up are the smoking gun.
If you are a mainstream 9/11 Truther, you need to consider Dr. Wood's work, because when you do the math on super-duper nano-thermite, it cannot account for the duration (many weeks) of under-rubble hot-spots without (unrealistic) massive quantities and a way to feed it into the hot-spot. Another energy source for the destruction must be sought. (I vote milli-nuclear reactors to power DEW devices, if not milli-nukes.)
Among the official conspiracy theory (OCT) huggers in this forum are those who prop up the "peer-review" straw man. Are you so science challenged that you cannot review the work of another citizen?
Another participant challenged us to show the weapons. Google "Active Denial System" and see it played out at lower amperage. You can find YouTube videos of lasers taking out missiles. A DEW device could be targeted to miss the outer structure as well as the spire/core supporting it. The energy applied, like a microwave oven, would instantly change the state of residual water molecules in content (e.g., concrete, drywall, humans) instantly into steam, whose expanding volume pressure would rip apart/dustify the content, like what was observed.
Want to know why 9/11 was done? To rob us while advancing an agenda that was un-Constitutional, un-American, and even anti-American and un-Christian.
The WTC-4 had vaults with billions (some say trillions) in gold. A portion of this gold (millions) was recovered... loaded into the trailer of a truck under WTC-5 with no bodies. The human casualties at the Pentagon were limited to the Office of Naval Intelligence, its records, and its personnel who were investigating the $2.3 trillion of unaccounted for DoD spending announced by Rumsfeld on 9/10 (the day before). WTC-7 held the records of the SEC and their destruction ended many pending cases of financial misdeeds (of prominent Bush backers). Silverstein got a couple of billion in insurance for his $50 million investment in the WTC complex lease, although his lawyers argued he should get seven billion. Let us also not forget the relaxing of the trading rules in the days after 9/11 under the auspices of "stabilizing the markets." Lots of money was laundered then, and earnest students of this should google "Black Eagle Fund" and "Marcos Fund", essentially old gold stolen by Germans/Japanese from their enemies, found by the Americans, never repatriated with their rightful owners (as per law), and used all these years to fund black ops. One such operation was the tanking of the Russian economy through market manipulation during Bush I using chits on that gold that were to come due... 9/11/2001.
The Project for a New American Century (PNAC) in the late 1990's was made up of neo-cons, many of whom later obtained influential roles in the Bush Administration. They achieved most of their goals set up in 1999 which included: changing the rules for how and why America goes to war (e.g., pre-emptive strikes), changing the rules on how America does war (e.g., outsourcing, rendition, indefinite detention, torture), establishing a permanent military presence in the Middle East (moved from Saudi Arabia -- one of CIA-asset Osama bin Laden's demands -- to Bagdad), and acknowledging that all of the above would be a slow transition unless they had "a new Pearl Harbor" to galvanize the public.
Anyone who has studied lending and the Federal Reserve knows that creating money/credit out-of-thin-air and charging interest are an unsubstainable model. Crashes have to happen. Those in the know reap rewards when the economy goes up, and have the inside track to reap greater rewards when it goes down. Lots of money changed hands towards the 1%-ers in the Bush years; we're not talking "stocks in corporations", we're talking the actual "brick-and-mortar" establishments being bought up for fractions of their values.
The media was complicit in 9/11. Dr. Wood hits the tip of this iceberg when she points out the weatherman-conspiracy to suddenly not report Hurricane Erin that they had been tracking all week, was at its closest point to NYC on 9/11, and represented a threat if not in turning toward to NYC then in storm surges, air plane travel, and danger to other coastal cities. "September Clues" (google it) takes you down a deep rabbit hole in how we were duped not only on 9/11, but continually since then by the corporate media.
I stand on Dr. Wood's shoulders, but deviate from trend lines that others might draw from her work. Free-energy? Cold-fusion? Hutchison’s Effect?
In my books, a milli-nuclear reactor (like from a submarine) to power multiple DEW devices in the tower would be easier to deploy and its unspent but fizzling nuclear material more easily explains unquenchable hot-spots, 1st responder ailments, dog-and-pony-show papers to dismiss anomalous radiation readings (e.g., Dr. Jones), and the nuclear hazmat procedures at ground zero (e.g., constant watering of the piles, trucking in fresh dirt, spreading it out, then removing it days later).
Slowly I've been discovering small errors in her work, yet many nuggets of truth remain that individuals need to mine, refine, and re-purpose.
