Deja vu, all over again

In the vast wasteland of missing, classified and obfuscated information surrounding the events leading to, during and after the 911 attacks on the US, NIST comes through, yet again, in the same way that each of the myriad aspects of the crime have been presented to the American people.

Our glorious government officials and agencies remain consistent in a single, fundamental way - support of the official version of the events, regardless of how absurd it is.

Countless warnings from a wide array of sources about an impending attack, systematically ignored by our politicians and intelligence agencies. Known perjury by a number of top-most Pentagon commanders regarding their failures to intervene in the attacks. Gagged and threatened witnesses with testimony that sharply contradicts the official version of 911. A sham and hoax called the "911 Commission" that performed major surgery on the body of evidence in their attempt to validate the official, government excuse/apology/version of the mass murder on 911.

From the summary of the NIST report on the collapse of WTC 7:

"Video and photographic evidence combined with detailed computer simulations show that neither explosives nor fuel oil fires played a role in the collapse of WTC 7," Sunder said. The NIST investigation team also determined that other elements of the building’s construction—namely trusses, girders and cantilever overhangs that were used to transfer loads from the building superstructure to the columns of the electric substation (over which WTC 7 was constructed) and foundation below—did not play a significant role in the collapse.

And two more remarkable paragraphs from the NIST report:

As for fuel fires, the team found that they could not have been sustained long enough, could not have generated sufficient heat to fail a critical column, and/or would have produced "large amounts of visible smoke" from Floors 5 and 6, which was not observed.

Finally, the report notes that "while debris impact from the collapse of WTC 1 initiated fires in WTC 7, the resulting structural damage had little effect in causing the collapse of WTC 7."

In the continuing government sponsored whitewash about all things 911, there now seems to be an unspoken, even unrecognized race developing. A race between the rate at which the once-secreted facts emerge and the remarkable apathy that steadily grows about the most dastardly crime in US history.
