The Criminal Destruction of 9/11 Evidence
A person commits the federal crime of tampering with evidence when he or she knowingly alters, conceals, falsifies, or destroys any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to interfere with an investigation, possible investigation, or other proceedings by the federal government.
$ELLING OUT THE INVESTIGATION
Fire Prevention & Protection
January 1, 2002 – Did they throw away the locked doors from the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire? Did they throw away the gas can used at the Happyland Social Club Fire? Did they cast aside the pressure-regulating valves at the Meridian Plaza Fire? Of course not. But essentially, that’s what they’re doing at the World Trade Center.
For more than three months, structural steel from the World Trade Center has been and continues to be cut up and sold for scrap. Crucial evidence that could answer many questions about high-rise building design practices and performance under fire conditions is on the slow boat to China, perhaps never to be seen again in America until you buy your next car.
Fire Engineering has good reason to believe that the “official investigation” blessed by FEMA and run by the American Society of Civil Engineers is a half-baked farce that may already have been commandeered by political forces whose primary interests, to put it mildly, lie far afield of full disclosure. – Editor of Fire Engineering, Bill Manning
Kevin Ryan was also on the research team led by Professor Niels Harrit, an Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry University of Copenhagen, that produced a peer reviewed research paper that established the presence of thermitic material In the WTC dust. Thermite, or more specifically nanothermite, can account for the enormous amount of energy required to demolish the 3 towers which fell at near free fall speed on September 11, 2001.
The problems with NIST’s explanation continue… where high temperatures were said to have softened the columns and floors. NIST did tests for this as well, but then abandoned the results.
The first test… showed that less than 2% of the samples had seen temperatures above 250 °C. Another test gave the one-sided result that no samples saw temperatures above 600 °C. The obvious problem was that steel does not soften or lose significant strength at the low temperatures indicated, yet NIST’s story depends on the softening or weakening of vast quantities of structural steel.
[NIST contended] sagging floors pulled exterior columns inward. To support this, NIST…had to take a computer mock-up of a 9-story high by 9-column wide section of steel wall and perform manipulations that had no relevance to the events at the World Trade Center.
NIST removed the virtual steel from its web of support by “disconnection,” stripped off all the fireproofing, exposed it to twice the known fire time (i.e. 90 minutes), and then applied an unspecified, utterly miraculous inward pull.
NIST’s final collapse initiation step states that, after all of these unscientific manipulations, “instability spread” around the entire building. Since the buildings came down uniformly into their footprints, and did so in approximately 10 seconds, there was precious little time for instability spread.
Abby Martin interviews Kevin Ryan (2013), co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and author of ‘Another 19’, a book that explores 19 alternative suspects that he alleges had the real means and motive to pull of the 9/11 attacks. Kevin Robert Ryan is a chemist and laboratory manager, who was fired by UL in 2004 for publicly questioning the report being drafted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on their investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on 11 September 2001. In the intervening period, Ryan has completed additional research while his original questions, which have become increasingly important over time, remain unanswered by UL or NIST.
In 2001 Kevin Ryan was the site manager at… a subsidiary of Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL had certified the steel in the World Trade Center buildings which were demolished September 11, 2001. In 2003 Ryan developed professional interest in the official investigation by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and by 2004 began questioning NIST directly.
This led to his termination after he went public with his findings. Why did not one or two, but three modern, steel-frame buildings completely collapse due to fire on 9/11 given that such an event had never taken place before?
Given the extensive evidence for demolition of the three towers on 9/11 assembled by Kevin Ryan and others, in 2009 and early 2010 Kevin Ryan authored four papers called “Demolition Access to the Towers” which attempt to address the issue of “Who could have placed explosives in the World Trade Center towers?” (The 4th paper will be an independent post). This post includes extended excerpts from this series.
The Twin Towers and WTC 7, all highly secure buildings, were most readily accessed by tenants, security and building management staff, and construction-related contractors.
Throughout the life of the WTC buildings, modifications were made to each structure. The modifications included upgrades to electrical, fire protection, and elevator systems, as well as general construction activities. As a rule, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) was responsible for initiating the modifications in the public access areas, and the tenants were responsible for completing the modifications throughout the leased spaces.
On 9/11, American Airlines Flight 11 hit the north face of the north tower (WTC 1) between floors 94 and 99. In a stunning coincidence, these floors bracket those that had been upgraded for fireproofing shortly before 9/11. This coincidence was amplified by the fact that one tenant occupied all of those floors – Marsh & McLennan (Marsh), which at the time was the world’s largest insurance brokerage company.
One month after 9/11, [Paul] Bremer would become the CEO for a new division called Marsh Crisis. Interestingly, the Yale graduate Bremer had been working to complete the National Report on Terrorism, and prior to that had been managing director for Kissinger Associates. Bremer was also a member of the board for Akzo Nobel, the parent of International Paint, a company that produced a fireproofing application for skyscrapers called Interchar.
Bremer was on the international advisory board for the Japanese mining and machinery company, Komatsu. The Komatsu-Dresser mining division… patented a thermite demolition device that could “demolish a concrete structure at a high efficiency, while preventing a secondary problem due to noise, flying dust and chips, and the like.”
…the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) …is the quasi-governmental agency that directed the construction of the WTC towers, and managed the WTC complex for all but the last three months of its existence. The PANYNJ was created in 1921 to “run the multi-jurisdictional commercial zones in the region.” As a result of their authority, the PANYNJ was responsible for managing both the WTC and Newark Airport, two facilities involved in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Within the towers, the PANYNJ was also a tenant, occupying much of the available space…
PANYNJ management includes an executive director and a board of commissioners comprised of twelve members.
On 9/11 the commission chairman was Lewis Eisenberg… and the executive director was Neil Levin, who had previously been Superintendent of Banks for New York State, and a general partner and vice president at Goldman Sachs. Mr. Levin died in the towers during the attacks, after having been in the position less than six months.
Past Commissioners of the PANYNJ included Robert R. Douglass, a close friend of David Rockefeller… [who] was accused of playing a major part in the underground economy, of being a main platform for money laundering and operating “hundreds of confidential accounts for banks so they could move money undetected.”
An interview with Reiss just moments after the destruction of the towers, in which Reiss’ police escort turned his back on Reiss and appeared unusually uncomfortable, demonstrated this fact.
A second piece of evidence indicating that Alan Reiss was being less than truthful after the attacks includes this quote… “No one ever thought about a hijacked plane being rammed into a building.”
…several people Reiss would have known had thought about this very scenario, including the WTC tower’s design engineer, John Skilling. In a 1993 interview, Skilling said that, in the event of an airliner crash into one of the towers, “the building structure would still be there.” One of Reiss’ own staff members, Frank A. DeMartini, the Manager of WTC Construction, was videotaped explaining how the towers could have withstood multiple impacts from aircraft. Another person that Reiss would have worked with closely throughout the security upgrades, Brian Michael Jenkins, had also assessed the possibility of an airplane attack on the WTC.
From 1989 to 1998, Jenkins was the deputy chairman of Crisis Management for Kroll Associates. Kroll directed the PANYNJ’s response to the 1993 bombing in terms of security upgrades…
Because Kroll’s Jenkins led the analysis of future terrorist threats and how they might be addressed after the 1993 bombing, and Alan Reiss was the lead person in the PANYNJ response to the bombing, it seems very unlikely that Reiss was not aware of Jenkins’ prediction of “terrorists deliberately crashing a plane into the towers.”
Alan Reiss might have wanted to be untruthful about the events of 9/11 because he knew more about the attacks than he let on. But he certainly knew about the involvement of Kroll in creating the security program for the WTC complex after the 1993 bombing. And Kroll’s work is very relevant to this analysis.
Prior to working for Kroll, Jenkins was chairman of the RAND Corporation’s Political Science department and he directed RAND’s research on political violence. He also had served as a captain in the Green Berets in the Dominican Republic and later in Vietnam (1966-1970). Later, in 1999 and 2000, Jenkins also served as an advisor to the National Commission on Terrorism, led by L. Paul Bremer. Jenkins returned to RAND after his stint with Kroll. Other RAND advisors during the times that Jenkins worked there were Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Frank Carlucci of The Carlyle Group, Paul Kaminski of In-Q-Tel [the CIA’s venture capital firm] and Project for a New American Century (PNAC) co-founder, Francis Fukuyama.
At times, Kroll worked for corporations that wanted to find fraud or secrets within a given organization. In some cases, when corporations were threatened with hostile takeover, Kroll helped out by finding embarrassing secrets about the takeover company’s executives… Former CIA spies, FBI agents, and prosecutors were hired by the firm, and made as much as twice the salaries they made in the public sector…
But on 9/11, Hauer was also serving as “a national security advisor with the National Institute of Health.” [Hauer advised the White House staff to take Cipro PRIOR to the 911 anthrax attacks.]
Mr. Hauer has been scrutinized due to his positions at the OEM and at Kroll, and for potential links to the anthrax mailings via SAIC. He has also been considered suspect due to the interviews he did on 9/11
Larry Silverstein owned WTC building 7, and in May 2001, he also finalized a 99-year lease of the WTC complex and took over operation of WTC buildings 1, 2, 4 and 5 from the PANYNJ
Wharton was a friend of Jerome Hauer, and through Hauer, Silverstein and Wharton met and hired an FBI agent named John O’Neill to run security.
Giuliani, Cherkasky and the BCCI Investigation
The terrorist financing bank BCCI was being investigated by US authorities “as early as 1983, 1984”, in an effort that began as an inquiry into drug money laundering. Despite these facts, BCCI was allowed to gain control of several American financial institutions, and was allowed to continue funding terrorism, without being prosecuted, for many years.
Kroll’s executive VP for Operations, James Bucknam, worked for Rudy Giuliani as an United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (AUSA SDNY) in the late 1980s. Giuliani was the US attorney for the SDNY, from 1983 to 1989, and was in charge of investigating BCCI. It was reported that Giuliani received documents during this time, about secret bank accounts related to terrorist financing that were held by companies like Citibank, Barclays, Credit Lyonnais, and the Japanese company Nomura. What is less well reported is that, when Giuliani left his job as AUSA SDNY to start a political career, he worked for a law firm called White & Case that actually represented BCCI.
BDM International… was a major subsidiary of The Carlyle Group [founded and owned by David Rubinstein] for most of that time. When Barry McDaniel started at BDM, the company began getting a large amount of government business “in an area the Navy called Black Projects,” or budgets that were kept secret.
BDM has had an interesting history. In 1990 it was a subsidiary of Loral Corporation, a company owned by Bernard Schwartz that was related to WTC security company Ensec… oral sold BDM to The Carlyle Group in 1992, at which time Frank Carlucci became chairman of BDM. Carlucci was a covert operative in his early career, and got his start in national politics through his old college roommate, Donald Rumsfeld, becoming Rumsfeld’s assistant at the Office of Economic Opportunity in 1969. Carlucci went on to be named Deputy Director of the CIA and Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of Defense.
…James Baker, who went to Princeton with Rumsfeld and Carlucci, and who was White House Chief of Staff, and Secretary of the Treasury, for Reagan. Baker was also George H.W. Bush’s campaign manager and Secretary of State, and Bush’s White House Chief of Staff again in his last government position. Baker became a partner at Carlyle just two weeks after the February 1993 bombing of the WTC.
On September 11, 2001, Baker was at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC, for the annual investor conference of the Carlyle Group. Also present with Baker was Carlucci, “representatives of the bin Laden family,” and George H. W. Bush.
…Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC)… was not only a major contributor to the NIST WTC report, it was also a company that had expertise in nanothermites, explosive materials which were found in the WTC dust as mentioned earlier.
After 9/11, SAIC supplied the largest contingent of non-governmental investigators to the WTC investigation conducted by NIST. At the same time, “SAIC personnel were instrumental in pressing the case that weapons of mass destruction existed in Iraq under Saddam Hussein, and that war was the only way to get rid of them.”
Today a majority of government intelligence work is outsourced, and SAIC is known first and foremost as an intelligence contractor. The company was paid huge sums to rebuild the NSA and FBI systems that supposedly failed before 9/11.
…the CIA relies on SAIC to spy in its own workforce. But SAIC has also played an integral role in the “War on Terror”, and was even responsible for capturing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
[Recently the US Government recently announced their intention to prosecute Mohammed in 2021 as the alleged “mastermind of 9/11.]
Former CIA Agent, John Kiriakou, who led the team to capture Abu Zubaydah and later blew the whistle on the CIA Torture Program, raises questions about the impending 911 trial of 5 men by a military court. He highlights the defence’s request to have their confessions thrown out, since they were obtained under torture. From Sep 1, 2019
More importantly, there were indications that the CIA was involved in the founding of BCCI.
Kissinger returned to China many times and on occasion took very close friends and business associates along with him, most notably Maurice Greenberg of AIG, who traveled extensively with Kissinger. [Kissinger worked for Greenberg as the head of AIG in China].
But the numerous connections between assistants and associates of Kissinger, and the most significant events of 9/11, are astounding. To begin with, Kissinger, who is considered by some to be an international terrorist due to his bombing of Cambodia, his role in the 1973 coup in Chile, and other atrocities, was the Bush Administration’s first choice to lead the 9/11 Commission. Although he later resigned from the Commission to avoid exposing his client list, Kissinger’s closest friends and aides played significant roles with regard to 9/11. http://www.911review.com/articles/ryan/carlyle_kissinger_saic_halliburton.html
Demolition Access to the WTC Towers: Part Four – Cleanup / February 2010 / Kevin Ryan:
The forensic investigation of explosions typically aims to determine who had the means, opportunity and motive to accomplish the explosive event. When that approach is taken with the WTC, we can see that those who had the greatest means and opportunity also had the greatest motive.
In addition to the actual placement of explosives, those involved would need to cleanup any evidence of explosives remaining at the site. …the debris was considered highly sensitive and nearly all the steel evidence was quickly destroyed. Additionally, although security at the site was intense, safety management was lax or nonexistent and… known criminal entities were hired to accomplish the debris removal, and that evidence was stolen from Fresh Kills landfill with the approval and coordination of FBI agents.
This was reported by Richard Zarrillo, an EMT at the scene, when he said: “OEM [Office of Emergency Management for NY] says the buildings are going to collapse; we need to get out,” and “I was just at OEM. The message I was given was that the buildings are going to collapse; we need to get our people out.”
Fire department Captain Abdo Nahmod was with Zarrillo, just before they were warned, and both had been told to make the OEM functional in WTC7. But, Nahmod reported: “Moments thereafter we were advised by the staff at OEM that we were to vacate the building [and] that they believed there was another possible plane on its way and [we] proceeded down the stairwell of World Trade  all the way down to the ground floor.”
In the lobby of Building 7, Zarillo and Nahmod apparently met with EMS Division Chief John Peruggia, OEM Deputy Director Richard Rotanz and an unidentified representative from the City’s Department of Buildings. Peruggia later said, “..it was brought to my attention, it was believed that the structural damage that was suffered to the towers was quite significant and they were very confident that the building’s stability was compromised and they felt that the north tower was in danger of a near imminent collapse.”
Sheirer now works at Giuliani’s firm, Giuliani Partners, along with Pasquale J. (Pat) D’Amuro, the FBI agent who ran the PENTTBOM investigation and stole evidence from Ground Zero (see below), and Michael D. Hess, who was present in WTC7 with explosive witness Barry Jennings. Bernard Kerik worked at Giuliani Partners as well. …Kerik took a short leave when he was appointed… Senior Policy Advisor to L. Paul Bremer, then the Iraq Occupation Governor. In Iraq…
Who Sold the 9/11 Steel for Scrap? – May, 2011 -Christopher Bollyn:
Andrew J. Naporano, the former president of Metal Management Northeast (formerly Naporano Iron and Metal Co. of Newark, New Jersey), was a consultant involved in selling the structural steel and ferrous and non-ferrous scrap from the World Trade Center after 9/11. The effort to recycle the steel was actually criminal destruction of crucial evidence from the crime scene. The hasty destruction of the steel evidence was thinly disguised as a recovery and clean-up operation. Destroying the evidence was an intrinsic part of the false-flag terror atrocity of 9/11, a crime of historic proportions.
I contacted Mr. Naporano while researching my chapter on the destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center. He wrote back to me and included a MS Word document, which is his “World Trade Center Job Summary Report” dated August 6, 2002.
Who was in charge?
Naporano was the consultant for the sales of the steel but he was not in charge. He explains that the Port Authority (the owner of the World Trade Center) “was overseeing my work.” The Port Authority was then headed by Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg. Chairman Eisenberg was the key person to approve the bids from the seven junkyards bidding on the steel. Eisenberg chose three junkyards to receive the evidence from the crime: Metal Management Northeast, Hugo Neu Schnitzer East, and the smaller Blandford. All three companies are controlled by Zionists [Ideologues who support Israel].
Naporano’s report says, “Finally, approval was given to sell to a limited number of buyers. (The list was expanded on subsequent bids).” The three bidders who were chosen by Eisenberg were Metals Management, Inc., Hugo Neu Schnitzer, and Blandford Land Development. Hugo Neu received more than 250,000 tons of ferrous scrap from the World Trade Center.
Solving 911, Chapter 15 – The Destruction of the Evidence -Christopher Bollyn:
Steel is said to have a memory because when it is exposed to explosions or extreme heat its structure is affected. Because explosions and thermite leave permanent telltale signs on steel, the real masterminds of 9/11 had arranged a network in advance to manage the quick recovery and hasty destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center – before it could be examined by experts.
…I discovered that the scrapyard that managed the destruction of most of the steel had employed a team of metal traders sent by a high-level agent of the Mossad to dispose of the steel by sending it to Asian smelters…
In January 1999 the Business Wire reported that two scrap iron traders who worked for Marc Rich [the international commodities trader, hedge fund manager, financier and Israeli agent pardoned by Bill Clinton] and his renamed company, Glencore AG, were being sent to New York to create an international trading division at Hugo Neu Schnitzer East, the scrap metal company who managed the destruction of the lion’s share of the steel from the World Trade Center. Marc Rich and his lieutenant Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore International, are both Israeli citizens with close ties to the Mossad. The head of the Marc Rich Foundation in Israel is a former Mossad operative named Avner Azulay (also spelled Azoulai).
Eventually, Irgun and Betar veterans would create the Likud Party, which is now headed by Binyamin Netanyahu, an extreme right-winger. After the war, Eisenberg began selling iron and steel scrap. Married to a Japanese woman who converted to Judaism, Eisenberg established the Israel Corporation, a huge holding company, which, during the 1970s, began to secretly export Israeli military equipment and weapons to China. Under a Panama-based company called United Development, Inc., Eisenberg began exporting weapons to Central America’s most insidious dictatorships, including that of Anastasio Somoza in Nicaragua. Eisenberg’s vast holdings eventually included Israel Aircraft Industries and Zim Israel Navigation Company.
Hugo Neu “played a pivotal role as the principal recycler of steel from the World Trade Center,” the company says about its role in the destruction of the steel. Robert A. Kelman, then senior vice president and general manager of Hugo Neu, told the Associated Press in 2002 that his company had handled 250,000 tons of trade center scrap and had shipped it to 11 countries, including Malaysia, China, South Korea, and Japan.
Kelman said Hugo Neu had a work force of nearly one hundred people working on the scrap metal from the World Trade Center, including 25 workers assigned to girder cutting, working around the clock in twelve-hour shifts.
Kelman said Hugo Neu had a work force of nearly one hundred people working on the scrap metal from the World Trade Center, including 25 workers assigned to girder cutting, working around the clock in twelve-hour shifts.
The people at Hugo Neu and Metal Management Northeast were obviously engaged in a hasty effort to cut up the steel, mix it with other scrap, and export it to distant Asian smelters. The real purpose behind this effort was to prevent the steel from being properly examined and becoming evidence that could expose the real cause of the explosive demolition that claimed nearly 2,800 lives. The crucial roles played by Hugo Neu and Metal Management in the recycling of the steel did not happen by accident but were part of a well organized plan to ensure the destruction of the evidence from the World Trade Center.
The second generation German-Jewish scrap dealer was certainly well prepared to handle the massive job. In August 2001, Hugo Neu was engaged in a private-public project to dredge the narrow, two-mile Claremont Channel that ships used to reach its yard.
The channel, which was only 10 feet deep in places, was dredged to a depth of 34 feet. Because the dredging was done to improve shipping for Hugo Neu, the company paid $24 million while the New Jersey Office of Maritime Resources paid $20.5 million. The dredging allowed larger ships to load at Hugo Neu’s Claremont facility, which is exactly what was required to export the 9/11 steel on ocean-going vessels to Asia.
To broker the deals with Asian mills Hugo Neu had created a global trading division in 1999, headed by two veteran ferrous metal traders from Marc Rich and Glencore AG in Switzerland.
