On 20 August 2009, we read that EARLY 9-11 REPORTAGE REVEALS SURPRISES
(Originally from http://www.petersnewyork.com/)
This presents these news items about 9-11:
1. New York Post, 13 September 2001, "Beyond Pearl Harbor" by Robert D. Novak:
"Security experts and airline officials agree privately that the simultaneous hijacking of four jetliners was an 'inside job,' probably indicating complicity beyond malfeasance...
"Security experts fear collusion with terrorists, possibly even extending to the cockpit...
"Stratfor.com, the private intelligence company, reported Tuesday, "The big winner today, intentionally or not, is the state of Israel."
2. The New York Times, 13 September 2001, "Controllers Say Flow of Information on Hijacked Planes' Course Was Slow and Uneven" by Matthew L. Wald
" Those controllers, who handled American Airlines Flight 77, which dived into the Pentagon, knew about the hijacking of the first plane to crash, even before it hit the World Trade Center, those involved said. That was more than an hour before they watched another hijacked plane, United Flight 93, cross their radar screen on its way to the Pentagon.
Advance knowledge made no apparent difference in the response; nobody intercepted the plane.
3. The New York Times, 20 September 2001, Engineers Say Buildings Near Trade Center Held Up Well by Eric Lipton and James Glanz
"...the twin towers had collapsed almost straight downward...
"'It's like controlled demolition,' said Matthys Levy, a founding partner at Weidlinger Associates, a structural engineering firm in New York.
Mr. Levy, the co-author of Why Buildings Fall Down (Norton, 1992), said the collapse of the towers... acted like a controlled demolition project."
4. New York Post, 13 September 2001, "Shocked experts ask: Who dropped the ball?"
by Bob Drogin
"World Trade Center ... 'One of the things we learned was the engineers who built it designed it to withstand the crash from a Boeing 707,' said John Parachini, executive director of the Washington office of the Monterey Institute of International Studies."
