I don’t know about the rest of you, but I don’t want to be doing this truth movement thing forever; I’m tired of endlessly arguing 9/11; eventually I’d like to solve this caper and get on with my life. I’m also tired of endless war and I believe the best way to stop the wars is by exposing the lies that started them. So to kill two birds with one stone, I began the 9/11 Crash Test project which you can find at 911crashtest.org and to help explain it I released a you-tube video entitled Tired of War Without End. For those who haven’t heard about it, the project proposal is to use one of the many online fundraising sites to raise funds for the project, while simultaneously raising awareness about 9/11 in the mainstream. The plan is to take a wing-section from a scrapped 767, strap it to a rocket sled and at 550 MPH, slam it into some steel boxes built to the specifications of the exterior columns of the world trade center, filming the results with high-speed cameras and producing a video documentary of the project to release online. I won’t beat around the bush; this endeavor looks the no-planes issue straight in the eye.
Have you ever wondered why after sixteen years there is so much discord and still no consensus within the Truth Movement? How can so many obviously smart people have so many disparate hypotheses, and why do the big, well-funded truth groups treat the no-planes hypotheses with such disdain? I’m sure we’ve all seen the same evidence, yet when I examined it I arrived at a completely different conclusion than most everyone else. I know people can lie and television can be faked, but as far as I’m concerned there’s no way a plane can slice a steel skyscraper like a hot knife through butter, and I believe the 9/11 Crash Test project will prove it.
But I’m not asking for you to embrace my version of 9/11, that’s not what the project is about; it’s about the test and nothing else, regardless what any of us believe, or think the results will be or will imply. Whether or not the crash test ever occurs, the project has already been a success by reaching people who otherwise would never have considered 9/11 to be anything other than the official story. By simply asking the question, “What would happen if we crashed a jet-wing into some steel boxes?” the wheels start turning.
I was able to change the opinion of even the most staunch, Fox-watching, gun-toting conservative skeptic by simply explaining the crash test project and then showing him the Mythbuster’s Myth Revolution video where they cut a car in half with a heavily braced steel “snowplow.” For ten years, this friend of mine would laugh at me as I went through my phases of 9/11 enlightenment, but when I showed him the Crash Test concept, he became very quiet. After three times watching them cut the car in half, he finally said, “Oh, that wing would just explode against the steel.” Three days later he called to ask how I am able to deal with being lied-to like that, and I said, “You’ve seen how I deal with it.” And we both laughed. Right there is one example of a brief skirmish with the mainstream and my friend is now fully on board with the project and has offered his expertise with steel fabrication to boot. The point is, the no-planes conclusion is not so crazy, in fact for the media-driven lifestyle of today with everyone pretty savvy to technology it is one of the simplest concepts for the mainstream citizen to grasp, although the implications can be staggering.
Face it, for the no-planes conclusion to be correct the leaders of the world’s media, academia, military and government had to be involved, meaning our leaders have been feeding us a lie, but you know what they say; if you make the lie big enough and repeat it often enough people will believe it, that’s the nature of the big lie. Unfortunately most of us still trust people in positions of authority; we believe they would never do such a thing, a conviction I notice is easy to exploit by propagandists. We tend to believe authority by virtue of their authority and nothing else. Apparently power only corrupts elsewhere. I assume it is for this reason the 9/11 Crash Test project has been given the cold shoulder by most of the Truth Movement establishment; because it stands the best chance of proving the no-planes hypothesis, which let’s be honest, would be the death-knell for that part of the truth movement that has spent the last dozen or so years collecting money and demanding someone, somewhere conduct a new investigation.
So with that in mind, listen to some of the responses I have received from one of the more well-known truth groups, the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth:
“Believe your eyes. Plane wings can and did slice the Twin Towers’ exterior columns. There’s no value in any tests like this.”
“…here’s the problem (we don’t) feel there is a need to resolve the issues between us and the no planers you’ll never get cooperation from (us) on this, the no planers make it easy for the mainstream to ignore us”
“I agree that there’s no sense in trying to reach the no planers. They are either too stupid to be concerned with or are actually disinformation agents. The no plane situation was obviously planned in advance of the attacks and was designed to work in concert with there actually being no plane crashes at the pentagon or in Shanksville.”
Most of the people I have met in the truth movement share these sentiments, but the thing is, I know I’m not a dis-information agent, and I’m pretty sure I’m not stupid, but I doubt the big truth groups aren’t already part of the mainstream that they claim to be trying to reach. If the no-planes conclusion is correct, then it would make sense that the propaganda arm of the military would be working overtime to discredit it, which to me makes suspect all the truther groups that refuse to consider it. So here we are back at square one, with the infighting and finger-pointing of a seemingly dysfunctional truth movement busily undermining itself while the years pass by.
To break this cycle and to force the issue both in the mainstream and within the truth movement, I suggest conducting the 9/11 Crash Test project. If the movement really cares about the truth, it would consider changing tactics after spending sixteen years petitioning the most likely suspects for an investigation. If the movement is correct about the no-planers, and they sincerely want a unified front without the “fringe element,” then they can use the crash test as a way to get rid of the no-planes contingent that prevents them from being taken seriously. If the wing slices the steel, the no-planers will be discredited but if the wing is shattered by the steel someone has some explaining to do, but either way the truth will be known which is presumably the goal of a truth movement. It’s a win-win for everyone except for the perpetrators.
The strength of this project is in its asking for a citizen’s investigation, one that would use the scientific method to prove or disprove a hypothesis. Yes, based on Newtonian physics, I state it is impossible for the wing to cut the steel, but I could be wrong which would only vindicate the government as well as the anti-no-planes truth movement. The Truth Movement would be able to demonstrate solidarity and a commitment to the truth, not to mention the ability to apply the scientific method to solve problems which is a standard to which every 9/11 hypothesis should be held.
So at the very least this project should end contention within the truth movement by settling the no-planes argument once and for all, something which can only benefit the cause of truth whichever way the rocket-sled slices. So why are the popular truth-groups so reluctant to endorse it? I think it’s because they know what the results will be, making this as much a test of mettle as it is a test of metals – that by simply asking the question “what would happen if…” it puts everyone on the spot.
The military has already shown interest; shortly after I first petitioned New Mexico tech for a price estimate, I began to get hits from the Army’s sprawling Yuma Arizona testing center. 10 minutes later I was getting hits from Baghdad. I didn’t sleep well that night. The project lays-bare the unhealthy relationship between the military and universities; it embarrasses the military-industrial-educational complex by forcing them to decline the project’s rational and substantive request for some rocket-sled test-center time. If they’d rent their facilities for such fluff as cutting a car in half, you’d think they’d fall all over themselves to give this project a discount and advertise it in their alumni newsletter. So far they have yet to return my emails or phone calls.
And then there’s the media that saturated our senses with fabrications, overwhelming us with that horrible, decade-long propaganda barrage that was so essential to the long term success of the 9/11 operation. There’s a special place in hell for them; and if and when this documentary is released their efforts in bringing hell to the Middle East will be exposed.
One component of the media is the Internet without which we wouldn’t have all the popular 9/11 Truth movement groups. Seems to me it’s not an accident so many forums include 9/11 as just another “conspiracy” to tuck beside such topics as Alien invasions and Bigfoot. As cynical as I have become over the years, I am still surprised and chagrined at how much the 9/11 Crash Test has angered so many people I had naively hoped would become allies. The test will prove whether or not U.S. Government and world leaders are caught red-handed in a colossal cookie-jar of lies, and it will prove what anyone honestly examining the evidence already knows; no, in the real world jets cannot burrow into the ground, or bore through concrete buildings, or disappear into steel skyscrapers. NATO and the “coalition of the willing” have been invading the Muslim world while the rest of the world looked the other way, which if anything is evidence of collusion on a global scale. But even if everything about 9/11 occurred as they say it did, the invasions, looting and occupying of whole nations as retribution for the actions of 19 individuals who were already dead anyway is barbaric and unacceptable behavior for a civilized people. Since our leaders appear devoid of moral fortitude and incapable of policing themselves, it’s up to we citizens to stop them.
It was Abraham Lincoln who said a house divided cannot stand and I believe that for the 9/11 Truth Movement to make any progress over the next 16 years, we need to sort out our differences and work together. If you are dedicated to reaching the truth, whatever that may be this project is a rocket-powered shortcut to getting there and I could sure use your help in making it happen.
