9/11 Truth For Beginner's - 101

...a very short course for those just beginning to explore the events surrounding 9/11/2001.

Since September 11, 2001, a diverse body of independent researchers have uncovered thousands of facts that have not been reported in the main stream corporate media or become part of the official story in the "9/11 Commission Report".  This short course will provide you with compelling information that will help you to more fully understand the events surrounding 9/11.



Prominent People who challenge the Official 9/11 Story

Despite recent C-Span and news coverage, most Americans have no idea that there is a growing body of respected Professors, Physicists, Engineers, Scientists, Pilots, Intelligence and Law Enforcement Officers, as well as Foreign Government Officials bringing forth unanswered questions, evidence and expert witness testimony which indicates that we were NOT told the truth about the events of 9/11 in the 9/11 Commission’s Report. Before you dismiss this as being nothing more than a “Conspiracy Theory”, please review this partial list of prominent people who challenge the 9/11 Commission findings and who champion a new, full and impartial investigation into the events preceding, during and since September 11, 2001:



"9/11: Press for Truth" tells the story of the 9/11 Victims Family Steering Committee and the "Jersey Girls" as they fought to force the Bush Administration to create a 9/11 Commission.  This moving and informative story demonstrates how the administration blocked information and completely ignored eye witness testimony.    Watch the Trailer Here and then Watch the Movie on Google Video Here.  And then visit their website at



9/11 Truth for Beginners - 101

"In our opinion, Dr. David Ray Griffin, speaker and author of several books on exposing the Truth surrounding the events of 9/11, is one of the clearest, most insightful and understandable advocates of the Truth in the world today.  There is a Presentation/Essay that he has written entitled "9/11: The Myth and the Reality" that provides a clear and logical understanding of the political and scientific evidence indicating that the official story provided to explain the terror attacks of 9/11 was a fraud." (


New to Researching 911?

Congratulations! You have made the decision to look into the facts behind 911. Many people are waking up and questioning the official conspiracy theory, so you are not alone. Many prominent Americans also question the events of 911. Asking questions is not a bad thing, remember that. And when we ask our elected representatives questions (employees) we expect, not hostility, but answers. Or the people (employer) fire those who fail to answer, and hire (elect) someone who will. ...



We STILL Want Real Answers About 9/11
September 11, 2009

"On August 31, 2004, Zogby International, the official North American political polling agency for Reuters, released a poll that found nearly half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of those in New York state believe US leaders had foreknowledge of impending 9/11 attacks and "consciously failed" to act. Of the New York City residents, 66% called for a new probe of unanswered questions by Congress or the New York Attorney General. Since that time, multiple professional polling organizations have obtained similar results in polls conducted nationally and internationally. ...

On the eighth anniversary of 9/11, in spite of Americans having elected the "other" party in hopes it would deliver on its promise of a change in direction, we find ourselves asking these same questions and encountering the same resistance to transparency...."

"This paper reviews and compares some of the initial media coverage and criticisms of BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones' research paper, Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse? In his paper, Jones calls for an investigation of the World Trade Center skyscrapers' collapses that seriously considers the hypothesis of controlled demolition. The decision of a professor of science to come forward with such a proposal is unprecedented..."

"It's a murder -- my son was murdered -- and there never has been a murder investigation and a finding of what happened. It's very simple -- I'm a father who lost his son.  Why wouldn't any father want to know how and why his son died?'' - Bob McIlvaine

"Regarding 9/11- "The official story could not possibly have happened... It’s not possible. It’s not operationally feasible... The Commission was a whitewash." - Catherine Austin Fitts, Assistant Secretary of Housing under President George W. Bush


"I've chosen to go to court rather than accept a payoff from the 9/11 victims compensation fund. Instead, I want to know what went so wrong with our intelligence and security systems that a band of religious fanatics was able to turn four U.S passenger jets into an enemy force, attack our cities and kill 3,000 civilians with terrifying ease. I want to know why two 110-story skyscrapers collapsed in less than two hours and why escape and rescue options were so limited.  I am suing because unlike other investigative avenues, including congressional hearings and the 9/11 commission, my lawsuit requires all testimony be given under oath and fully uses powers to compel evidence."

"We got started late; we had a very short time frame... we did not have enough money... We had a lot of people strongly opposed to what we did. We had a lot of trouble getting access to documents and to people... So there were all kinds of reasons we thought we were set up to fail." - Lee Hamilton, Vice Chairman, 9/11 Commission


Eminent Theologian David Griffin Sparks 9/11 Truth Groundswell

David Griffin, one of America's most eloquent and influential theologians, has summed up the overwhelming evidence for US government 9/11 complicity in in his bestseller The New Pearl Harbor. (Read Marc Estrin's review.) (Listen to Pacifica radio interview.) Dr. Griffin's follow-up book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, demolishes the last shreds of doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, and the official story a transparent cover-up. His next book Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11 sums up evidence that 9/11 was an inside job, reflects on this from a Christian perspective, and calls on all Christians and all moral people to join the struggle for truth. And his most recent bestseller, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, annihilates every significant argument against the 9/11 truth movement. (View more articles by David Ray Griffin...)



9/11 Truth Statement Demanding Deeper Investigation into the Events of 9/11

NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) (Updated Sep. 11, 2009) - An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the government had foreknowledge and "consciously failed to act," with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation. ...

"If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or ... to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you? Scholars for 9/11 truth have developed reams of scientific data. Michael Ruppert published an exhaustive account of the case from the viewpoint of a trained investigator. David Ray Griffin provides a context for the unanswered or badly answered questions that should nag at anyone who pretends to love this country." (Read more) - Lt. Col. Shelton F.

Through Pain and Sacrifice, the American Promise Will Be Fulfilled

August 17, 2010

"In February of 2002 a group of family members of 9/11 victims formed September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows in order to challenge the ever inflating sentiment and hysteria that led our nation into (eventually) two wars; that led to the death of thousands of U.S. servicemen and women, countless civilian casualties, and an era of perpetual fear-mongering perpetrated by politicians that today places us squarely in the viral debate over a place of worship near Ground Zero."

"When something does not make sense then someone is usually lying. Arabs that hate our freedom took box cutters, then hijacked 4 airplanes, outsmarted our military, flew loop d loops for nearly two hours in the most protected air space in the world, caused history's first 3 sky scrapers to ever completely collapse."

"They then caused another airplane to vaporize. Not melt into a molten puddle of steel mind you but actually boil away and evaporate blown off with the breeze. Then for an encore they turned up alive in Saudi Arabia. Now either that is one hell of a days work for Arabs with box cutters or someone is not being forthright with us. Unfortunately there is considerable evidence for the latter." (Read More...)


“Recognizing the high correlation between those who know about the collapse of WTC 7 and those who believe that a new – or rather real – 9/11 investigation is needed, I propose that the international 9/11 Truth Movement initiate, starting this September, a world-wide, year-long ‘Building What?’ campaign. Through this campaign, we would seek to make the fact of its collapse so widely known that the mention of Building 7 would never again evoke the question: ‘Building What?’” -David Ray Griffin


"A Zogby poll in May 2006 found that 43 percent of the American people were unaware that WTC 7 had collapsed...  A dramatic example of the fact that this building’s collapse has not been prominent in the public consciousness was provided in a New York City courtroom in September 2009. Judge Edward Lehner was hearing arguments about a petition sponsored by NYC CAN to allow residents to vote on whether New York City should have its own investigation of the World Trade Center attacks. After Judge Lehner had observed that the 9/11 Commission had carried out an investigation and issued a report, Dennis McMahon, a lawyer for NYC CAN, said that this report left many unanswered questions. “One of the biggest questions,” he added, “is why did Building 7 come down” – at which point Judge Lehner asked: “Building What?” - David Ray Griffin


"I remember getting a call from the, uh, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘You know, we’ve had such terrible loss of life, may be the smartest thing to do is, is pull it.  And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse." [click here to watch] [Analysis of this quote - Larry Silverstein - Owner (leaseholder) of the World Trade Center, speaking on the 2002 PBS documentary "America Rebuilds" about the collapse of World Trade Center building 7.



Mainstream Media Questions Inaccuracies in 9/11 Story

"As The Washington Times reports today, "A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.

"The problems with the official federal stories are endless and according to some of the world's top minds, the suggested account is impossible."

International Poll: Who Was Behind 9/11
by Haitham Sabbah on September 11, 2008

A new poll of 17 nations finds that majorities in only nine of them believe that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. In no country does a majority agree on another possible perpetrator, but in most countries significant minorities cite the US government itself and, in a few countries, Israel. These responses were given spontaneously to an open-ended question that did not offer response options.

On average, 46 percent say that al Qaeda was behind the attacks while 15 percent say the US government, seven percent Israel, and seven percent some other perpetrator. One in four say they do not know. (Read more...)

"Through my research I learned that many mainstream people, government officials, pilots and regular “Joes” actually doubt the “official” story.  Yet the media still treats “Truth” seekers like they have a mental disorder, are few and far between, and even dangerous.  I’ve since learned there are major news stories concerning 9/11 that the media won’t cover Do you know about Tower 7?  And, did you know that Japan, who lost 24 of their citizens in the 9/11 attacks, has held hearings this year on the possibility that the “official” story isn’t the truth?  Why hasn’t the media covered THIS?  I’ve since learned about the whistleblowers that have been silenced." (Read More) - Erik Lawyer, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth


“At some level of the government, at some point in time… there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened... I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described… The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.” ~ John Farmer, Senior Counsel to the 9-11 Commission



"Omission is one of the major flaws in the Commission’s report. We are aware of significant issues and cases that were duly reported to the commission by those of us with direct knowledge, but somehow escaped attention. Serious problems and shortcomings within government agencies likewise were reported to the Commission but were not included in the report. The report simply does not get at key problems within the intelligence, aviation security, and law enforcement communities. The omission of such serious and applicable issues and information by itself renders the report flawed, and casts doubt on the validity of many of its recommendations." [read entire letter] - 25 Veteran National Intelligence Officers - A letter to the 9/11 Commission signed by FBI, military, and intelligence veterans.


"...The recent revelations that the C.I.A. destroyed videotaped interrogations of Qaeda operatives leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot. Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation.  There could have been absolutely no doubt in the mind of anyone at the C.I.A. or the White House of the commission’s interest in any and all information related to Qaeda detainees involved in the 9/11 plot. Yet no one in the administration ever told the commission of the existence of videotapes of detainee interrogations." - Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, Co-Chairs of the 9/11 Commission (read more)
