(FinalCall.com) – On February 26, 2012, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered his keynote address for the Nation of Islam’s Annual Saviours’ Day Convention to an enthusiastic crowd at the United Center in Chicago. A few days after the address the standard attack dogs–Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Abraham Foxman–were sent out to scare the people away from dealing with the substance of The Minister’s address. They figure that by calling him names and dropping innuendos they can prevent the masses from going to www.NOI.org or getting the DVD and watching his lecture for themselves. His lecture may be one of the most important lectures ever given to the American people; therefore, such attacks by his enemies and the enemies of the American people are only expected.
But let’s get down to business. These “pundits” or talking heads brought up the accusation that Minister Farrakhan was trying to sell some wild conspiracy theory about the possible involvement of members of the U.S. government in the tragic events of “9/11”. Many witnesses are on film recalling having heard MANY explosions, and employees of the World Trade Center FELT bomb explosions coming from the basement. Huh?! Firefighters–the HEROIC first responders–talk of multiple explosions, yet none of them were allowed to testify before the 9/11 Commission. Why are FOXMAN, BECK, HERMAN CAIN and HANNITY calling our heroic Fire Department City of New York first responders liars?
The Minister believes those eyewitnesses. Here is what the Minister said in an interview given to Al-Jazeera on September 10, 2010:
“September 11th was very, very strange: 19 Muslims were put before the American public and the world two days after this heinous attack. Qur’ans were found. But before this, the Neo-Cons that were surrounding President Bush, who were the architects of something called a “Project For The New American Century,” said that America needed something like “Pearl Harbor”–9/11 was America’s new Pearl Harbor. To summon the American people in their anger and horror over what happened; now there are too many strange things that we question.”
Minister Farrakhan has the courage to say in the public what others are afraid to think in private: “Five of the 19 so-called terrorists are alive and well in Saudi [Arabia]. Tell me: If airplanes crashed into the building, scientists have said that the amount of heat from the fuel in the planes could never melt steel. It would take something else. Those buildings fell in free-fall, like you see implosions that are controlled demolition. The Second Tower fell; there was no plane that attacked the third tower, but it, too, fell, heh? Something is wrong with that picture.”
There were three buildings that fell that day in the World Trade Center (WTC) complex. Buildings 1 and 2 were struck by jet planes in the morning and fell that same morning; however, another building that was 47 stories high, called building #7 (WTC 7), fell that evening at 5:21 PM EST. It fell in about 7 seconds–exactly the way WTC Buildings 1 and 2 had fallen–within its own footprint, not damaging valuable property around it. Will someone explain to us how WTC 7 collapsed in the manner that it did considering the fact that it was not struck by a jetliner?
In fact, the Honorable Minister Farrakhan invited members of the 9/11 Truth Movement to present their scientific analysis of what happened on September 11, 2001, in a plenary session titled “9/11: What Really Happened and Why?” held February 25th, as part of Saviours’ Day. Minister Farrakhan in his keynote address repeatedly referred to the findings of Mr. Richard Gage, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and Mr. Kevin Ryan, a chemist and co-editor of the peer-reviewed Journal of 9/11 Studies. It is curious that “attack dogs” Hannity, Beck and Foxman did not even acknowledge that these two scientists were at Saviours’ Day and had presented their scientific analyses of the destruction of World Trade Center buildings 1, 2 and 7. In particular, Mr. Gage flatly asserted and then proved that WTC 7 was not brought down by a plane or a fire caused by debris coming from the other buildings.
In fact, it was the U.S. government’s own report put out by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) that prompted Mr. Gage, an architect by trade, to get involved with finding a more plausible explanation for the collapse of those three buildings at the World Trade Center on September 11th. The NIST report blamed the collapse of all three buildings on fire. However, Mr. Gage pointed out that never in the history of steel-framed buildings has a skyscraper had a “complete collapse” due to fire–NEVER. How, then, do you have three major skyscrapers falling due to fire and leaving in their wake finely pulverized concrete and distorted pieces of steel full of gaping holes? Mr. Gage went on to present side-by-side videos of the collapse of WTC 7 and a building known to have been purposely destroyed by demolition experts using bombs placed strategically throughout the building. He ran these videos over and over again to emphasize that what happened in a controlled demolition looked exactly like what happened not only with WTC 7 but with WTC Buildings 1 and 2. And as Minister Farrakhan loves to demonstrate: “If side angle side equals side angle side, then the triangles are congruent.”
Then Mr. Gage goes on to prove the existence of explosive materials in the dust of WTC 7, the existence of pools of molten steel whose extreme temperatures persisted for several weeks after the collapse, and the existence of eyewitness reports of explosions going off at different times in those buildings. What about those explosions or bombs going off? Who placed those bombs and detonated them? Mr. Gage proved that jet fuel cannot burn hot enough to melt steel, so what melted the steel?
People can continue to believe the government’s conspiracy theory that 19 men led by a man in a cave 8,000 miles away orchestrated the hijacking of aircraft, then slamming them into some buildings. However, if the buildings were brought down by explosives placed in those buildings long before the planes arrived, then those planes and alleged hijackers are IRRELEVANT to the question of who executed the CRIME of 9/11. Mr. Gage pointed out that WTC 7 housed the offices of the CIA, FBI, Securities and Exchange Commission and the NYC Emergency Management. So how could some alien Arab gain access to that building for weeks in advance to install those explosives?
We understand that it is hard to wrap one’s mind around the possibility that the U.S. government would be involved with killing 3,000 of its own citizens just for the excuse to attack innocent men, women and children, while at the same time depriving her own citizens of their Constitutional Rights. But it wouldn’t be the first time (or the last) that the U.S. government has committed false-flag operations: Operation Ajax, Operation Northwoods, The Gulf of Tonkin Incident are just a few examples. Again I repeat, “Minister Farrakhan has the courage to say in the public what others are afraid to think in private.”
Mr. Kevin Ryan pointed out that “Many people do not remember that the 9/11 Commission would never have existed if it were not for the victim’s family members. To be clear, there would never have been an investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attacks unless a handful of widows had not embarrassed the U.S. government into making it happen. When it did happen, the 9/11 Commission was funded at only $3 million, which should be compared to the $40 million spent on investigating President Clinton’s sex life just a few years earlier.”
And when the Commission finally did do its investigation to prove its conspiracy theories, it was flawed beyond repair because it ignored evidence, such as the testimony given to them by former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, who, according to Mr. Ryan summarizing Mineta’s sworn testimony before the 9/11 Commission, said very clearly that “Vice President Dick Cheney knew that a plane was coming into the Pentagon and was essentially tracking the progress of that plane for some time. And there was some [executive] order related to that plane.”
So when the “attack dogs” accuse the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of fostering conspiracy theories about who did 9/11, let them tell us about the bombs. What about those explosions that witnesses heard coming from WTC 1, 2 and 7? How could WTC 7 free-fall the same way as Buildings 1 and 2, but no plane had hit it? What about the explosive materials found in the World Trade Center dust? What about the molten metal? What about those bombs: first in the basement, then starting from the top all the way down, throughout all three buildings? What about those bombs?
