FBI Believed that Bombs Were Used on 9/11

On 9/11, the FBI believed that bombs were involved in the attacks.

How do I know that?

Because, according to the FBI's website:

Following the massive terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, the FBI dedicated 7,000 of its 11,000 Special Agents and thousands of FBI support personnel to the PENTTBOM investigation. "PENTTBOM" is short for Pentagon, Twin Towers Bombing.

(see also this and this).

Indeed, the FBI told a reporter for USA Today that FBI agents believed there were bombs in the Twin Towers.

Similarly, the Washington Post believed that bombs were involved, as reflected in a September 21, 2001 article containing the following phrase:

In the hours after Tuesday's bombings . . . .

Many firefighters and policemen also said there were bombs in the Twin Towers.

And perhaps "the premiere collapse expert in the country", who 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer referred to as a "very, very respected expert on building collapse", the head of the New York Fire Department's Special Operations Command and the most highly decorated firefighter in its NYFD history, who had previously "commanded rescue operations at many difficult and complex disasters, including the Oklahoma City Bombing, the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, and many natural disasters worldwide" thought that the collapse of the South Tower was caused by bombs, because the collapse of the building was too even to have been caused by anything else (pages 5-6).

But surely experts have since proven that no bombs were involved. Right?

In fact, structural engineers, architects, scientists and demolition experts and other high-level experts have examined the evidence and think that there were bombs.

Even the former head of the Fire Science Division of the government agency which claims that the World Trade Centers collapsed due to fire, who is one of the world’s leading fire science researchers and safety engineers, a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering (Dr. James Quintiere) doesn't bevelieve an adequate investigation into 9/11 has been conducted. He has called for an independent review of the World Trade Center Twin Tower collapse investigation. "I wish that there would be a peer review of this," he said, referring to the NIST investigation. "I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they've done; both structurally and from a fire point of view. ... I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable."


  1. Oddly enough, explosive residue was found in a moving truck on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The 5 Israeli citizens had a decided "Palestinian" appearance and were apprehended when the NYPD decided to close down all bridge exits.

    One can only speculate as to why they thought their video "documentation" would outshine the vast majority of New Yorkers doing likewise, particularly when they were reported to be fooling around quite voraciously.

    (Myself, I think that some pictures of prominent people having sexual relations with minors emerged leading to the dismissal of the whole affair, but I am highly biased having researched that topic.)

  2. I saw a video, from Eric Hufschmid IIRC, that said that there were stalled trucks of gold attempting to make a quick getaway in one of the underground tunnels. Never heard anything else about it but viewing our current economically straightened circumstances, perhaps some prominent researcher will bring it up again.


  4. My brother is a conservative American who routinely dismisses 'conspiracy theories'.

    Until last week, when he came to see me (about once a year, I live in Africa, he lives in America), livid with the conviction the he - and America - had been "lied to" to get us into the Iraq war.

    It seems we are all waiting for a grassroots consensus before something is actually DONE.

    I think the evidence is in and that it is compelling. Reservation of judgment time is over.

    Where do I sign up for the action?

  5. And after looking at the evidence, they and others concluded there were no bombs. WTC Pre-Collapse Bowing Debunks 9/11 "Controlled Demolition" Theory: Indications of the Imminent Collapse of the World Trade Center Buildings Disprove Explosives Theory

  6. Highly recommended reading for all, below. A theory put forth by E.P. Heidner, who believes that 9-11 was about, among other things, the destruction of evidence going back to 1990-1991 -- a decade-long, litter-strewn trail of evidence of major covert CIA operations, among which the destabilization and subsequent pillage of the Soviet Union, financed by counterfeit US govt bonds ...

    Impossible to do the article justice in a few short phrases, as it's long and packed with potent historical information and references. An eye opener. Well worth the effort.

    Part 2 of the article, describing the relation between 9-11 and the subprime [financial] crisis, is equally as information-packed and revealing. Only hitch is that it is behind a [free] subscription wall, at Scribd.com. The subscription process takes only a few moments:

  8. anyone looking for truth from our government is living in la la land.... the truth about 9-11-01 is no exception.... there are many many pieces of evidence, video, audio, photographic, and testimonial pointing to rogue elements in control of our govt. had planned, executed and covered-up IT's involvement...

    I have a one piece of photographic evidence hanging right next to my B.S. in Civil Engineering... evidence that thermate was used to cut 3in plate box columns like butter....

    ok, good-day all...im going back to my work as a structural engineer now....

  9. Great work as always. I love how you included the fact that NIST's work is not peer-reviewed. Every time truth advocates get something published, it isn't good enough. Yet, here we have NIST, a non-regulatory federal agency, skipping forensic tests, giving us unverifiable computer models, and telling us "initiation of collapse" leads to "global collapse".

    Here is a response...

  11. Never, ever, EVER trust your government. Americans of all people should know this, for it was only a couple hundred years ago since the Revolution.


    Nothing unusual will happen. Al-Qaeda and Iraqis are still terrorists, and Israel ыешдд has the right to exist, hence to defend itself from the terrorists by all available means. American public will once again show understanding and cooperation with their true trusted ally and best friend.

  14. I'm a very liberal American who routinely dismisses conspiracy theories, because I think that the truth, as Hannah Arendt (I think she concluded this:) noted: usually has no connection to such theories and that people who believe that the truth is there are often attracted to left or right totalitarianism. Or maybe I'm just an inherent doubter. My mother once said that I would argue with a stop sign.en

  15. Interesting that BOMBS mentioned on Day One by FBI and USA Today, bcz the MSM has since then jeered that anyone thinking that is a NUTCASE!!!!

    But THAT'S NOT SO IMPORTANT bcz they could say al-Q planted bombs.

    I want to know why DOZENS of US Intell and Military advisors were openly wanting terror bloodbath on US soil, and nobody ever questioned them for even COMPLICITY.


  16. You all need to go to bed and get some sleep

  17. The 9/11 truther community should have stood together immediately after the collapse of WTC #7 -- seen by millions on TV as an almost perfect controlled demoliton -- in order to insist on this single event providing largely sufficient evidence of an insider job (but of course this is wishful thinking and "aferwards one is always wiser", as we say in French).

    Alas, the sad truth is that the flood of critical opinions, analyses, and conclusions about the twin tower collapse, the NORAD complicity, the Pentagon missile attack, etc., following this first and foremost evidence were in actual fact counter-productive in that such a tsunami of further evidence merely led to "drowning the fish", as we say in French again, i.e. to thin out the unquestionable proof of controlled demolition provided by the WTC7 perfecttly collapsing into its own footprint at free-fall speed.

    Yet the fact of the official report not even mentioning WTC7 still leaves open an opportunity to claim an acceptable explanation from the suspected culprits on this key evidence, before allowing any further investigations.

  18. Funny how "Conspiracy Theorists" are laughed at when they present a theory alleging their government is / has conspired to do evil,and yet no one debunks government's or ruling elite's conspiracy theories by those who are deemed to be the enemy or threat...so we accept conspiracy theories about Soviet Russia r KGB or Iraq or Iran or home-grown anarchists / communists. Everything is relative depending on whose side you're on. Conspiracy theories are looney if its our governments being accused, but perfectly reasonably if its the "bad guys". The same with "terrorists" and "freedom fighters" or "insurgents / rebels" or "partisans / resistance fighters". When Soviet Russia invaded and occupied Afghanistan, the Afghani resisters were brave partisans, but when the US led NATO forces invade and occupy Afghanistan, suddenly the Afghanis resisters are evil insurgents.
    Incidentally, it was obvious to me on Day 1, that 9 /11 was part of a conspiracy perpetrated by the Pentagon, CIA with the help of Mossad, Israel's secret service. Already history is beginning to agree with me.
