Please post this on the Front Page, as this announcement could create a critical “tipping point” in public opinion.
Sen. Gravel, who said in a press release that “critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed.” Gravel has been concerned with the events of September 11, 2001, for some time now. He has called for an independent investigation into 9/11.
“Unlike the first investigation, this commission should be granted subpoena power and full access to all governmental files and personnel,” Gravel wrote. “George Bush should be forced to testify ALONE.”
San Francisco Architect Richard Gage said the way the towers collapsed was consistent with a controlled demolition, not a chaotic structural collapse.
“The official FEMA and NIST reports provide insufficient, contradictory, and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction,” Gage said. “We are therefore calling for a grand jury investigation of NIST officials.”
But Gage added that “government investigators at the NIST have been forced to acknowledge the free-fall descent, an indicting fact, after being presented with analysis by AE911Truth petition signers.”
On its Web site, the architects’ and engineers’ group lists facts that suggest explosives were used to take down the towers.
— Rapid onset of “collapse”
— Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a second before the building’s destruction
— Symmetrical “structural failure” — through the path of greatest resistance — at free-fall acceleration
— Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic dust clouds
— Expert corroboration from the top European Controlled Demolition professional
— FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples
WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire, i.e.
— Slow onset with large visible deformations
— Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)
— High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never “collapsed”.
Clear Evidence Of Explosions.

Originial Press Release:
National Press Club, Washington DC, 2:00 pm, Thursday, September 9, 2010
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 PRNewswire-USNewswire — On Thursday September 9, 2010, Mike Gravel and Richard Gage will host a central press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, presenting hard evidence that all three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, in NYC were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.
Senator Gravel notes, “Critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed.”
This press conference will be webcast at AE911Truth.org and hosted concurrently in cities throughout the world.* Following the conference, there will be a mock debate during which public statements made by government investigators and other defenders of the official account will be presented and responded to in multimedia format. “They refuse to debate us in person,” says Gage, “so we will let their public statements represent them.”
Gage will release a media-friendly summary of his organization’s findings, which are based on forensic evidence as well as video and eyewitness testimony that were omitted from official reports.
He will show evidence that the WTC Twin Towers were not destroyed by jet plane impacts or fires, but by pre-set explosives and incendiaries. The non-profit organization, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, will also call for a grand jury investigation of government report lead engineers Shyam Sunder and John Gross of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. “They were in a position to know the evidence we have been presenting,” says Gage.
Also speaking will be Florida State Professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who coined the academic term State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD). Prof. deHaven-Smith has appeared on Good Morning America, the Today Show, NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, CBS Nightly News with Dan Rather, and other national TV/radio shows.
The DC press conference will be accessible via webcast AE911Truth.org, 2:00 pm September 9, 2010.
