"WORKING INSIDE THE STACK OF AN INCINERATOR" - FDNY firemen working in the smoke coming from the rubble of the World Trade Center.  Intensely hot chemical reactions beneath the pile produced extreme heat for more than three months despite being continuously doused with water.  The conditions were "brutal" for people working at 'Ground Zero' without respirators and only slightly less so for those working or living in adjacent buildings, Thomas Cahill, a professor of physics and atmospheric science, told me.  "It was like they were working inside the stack of an incinerator," he said.  More than 64 members of the FDNY have died since 9-11 as a result of their exposure. 

If any question why we died,
tell them, because our fathers lied.
- Rudyard Kipling, Epitaphs of the War (1914-1918)

Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, D.C. that their air is safe to breathe and their water is safe to drink. 
- Christie Whitman, EPA Administrator, September 18, 2001

For everyone downtown, being caught in that dust cloud was an enormous exposure, but the rescue and recovery people stayed on site, breathing in a witch's brew of toxic compounds, fibers, concrete dust and metals.
- Dr. Michael Crane, Medical Director of the World Trade Center Health Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York Daily News, September 7, 2011

THE SMOKING GUN - The whitish smoke coming from the chemical fires that raged beneath the rubble was a "witch's brew" which sickened and killed thousands of first responders and others who worked on or near the pile.  This is a subject which government officials and the controlled media have avoided.

HELL ON EARTH - Infrared imaging on September 16, 2001, shows intense hotspots on the surface of the rubble.  Yellow is hotter than red in these images.  The hotspot labeled A, in the ruins of Larry Silverstein's WTC 7, is 1,340 degrees F (~726 degrees C).  The East corner of the South Tower, where tons of molten metal were seen falling before demolition, Point G, shows a surface temperature of 1,376 degrees F (~747 degrees C).  This means that a piece of aluminum placed on the pile at these points would melt instantly.

September 2012 marked the passing of the eleventh year since the terror attacks of 9-11 and the destruction of the World Trade Center.  To mark the occasion the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health announced a ruling that added about 60 cancers to be covered under the James Zadroga 9-11 Health and Compensation Act.  This act is meant to help cover the medical costs for people whose health has been seriously affected by their exposure to the dust and/or toxic smoke that rose from the burning rubble of the World Trade Center.

While this may be welcome news for the two to three thousand people who currently have cancer as a result of having worked on or near the smoking pile, it is too late for the estimated one thousand who have already died.  Having written about the extraordinary amount of ultrafine or nanoparticles discovered in the smoke and the extreme temperatures that are required to produce them, I decided to dig into the subject more deeply. 

I began with the news articles about the decision to add a host of cancers to the Zadroga Act.  What I found was that the focus of the articles was primarily on “the dust” while very little was said about the smoke that rose from the pile for three months after 9-11.  An October 2012 search of news articles about the cancers and the Zadroga Act found none that linked the smoke to the cancer risk.  On the other hand there were 166 articles that mentioned “the dust”.

Most of the articles that did include the word “smoke” were those that contained the word in a caption to a photo taken by Stan Honda of the Associated Press.  The photo caption reads:  Firefighters make their way over the ruins of the World Trade Center through clouds of dust and smoke at ground zero in New York. Hundreds of people are suing New York City over cancer diagnoses they received after working at ground zero.

This is a most peculiar omission that can only be intentional.  By omitting any discussion of the smoke the reader is misled into thinking that the huge dust clouds, which resulted from the pulverization of the concrete floors of the Twin Towers, are the major cause of the serious illnesses.  The thin bluish smoke, heavily laden with toxic ultrafine particles, which rose from the rubble and was inhaled by many thousands of firemen and other workers on the pile, is not even discussed.  Ultrafine particles (i.e. smaller than one-tenth of a micron) have a unique toxicity because their extremely small size allows them to move freely through the body and penetrate the human cell, where they are able to do the most serious damage to the human system.

There is a reason why the controlled media does not discuss the toxicity of these ultrafine particles in the smoke.  To discuss these particles would require some explanation about what had created them in the first place.  As Dr. Thomas Cahill from the DELTA Group at the University of California at Davis told me in 2006, "Ultra-fine particles require extremely high temperatures, namely the boiling point of the metal." 

According to the official version of 9-11, the Twin Towers collapsed due to catastrophic structural failure caused by burning jet fuel and office materials.  Because this demonstrably false explanation cannot account for the huge amount of molten metal that accompanied the collapses, it is simply not discussed.  The molten metal in the rubble was created by the highly energetic and explosive material that pulverized the Twin Towers.  This material is the real smoking gun of 9-11.  It was used to destroy the towers and kill nearly 3,000 people on 9-11 and has killed and ruined the lives of thousands more in the past 11 years.

A relative touches a name on the memorial for the FDNY personnel who have died as a result of their exposure to the toxic smoke coming from the rubble pile.  Nine names were added in September 2012 bringing the total to 64.

I called the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) and spoke with James Long, director of the office of public information, to ask what the fire department knew about the nature of the fires beneath the rubble.  The fire department had doused the smoking rubble continuously with water for several months and applied chemicals without success to try and extinguish the fires.  Had the fire department investigated the nature of the fires they had worked so hard to put out?  When I asked Mr. Long about the large amounts of molten metal found in the rubble, he denied having any knowledge of it.  He claimed to be completely unaware of the video testimony of New York firefighters having seen molten iron flowing “like lava” in the rubble, so I sent him the videos.  At this point he stopped responding.  He had done his job.  He had denied knowing anything about the evidence that cannot be explained by the official version.

For the controlled media and the quislings who hold political power in the governments of New York City and the United States, there is evidently a list of subjects about 9-11 they are not allowed to discuss in any way.  At the top of the list of censored subjects we would find the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers and the evidence of molten iron in the towers and the rubble. 

PARTNERS IN CRIME - Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a strong supporter of Ehud Barak and the extremist Likud regime ruling Israel.  Here he offers support to Defense Minister Barak during Israel's assault on Gaza in December 2008.  Barak is one of the chief suspects of the false-flag terrorism of 9-11.  Bloomberg is the key Zionist agent behind the 9-11 cover-up in New York City.  "Though 9/11 made Michael Bloomberg mayor, he’s sometimes seemed insensitive about its aftereffects on others - he once memorably said he wanted to tell widows they needed to 'suck it up' and move on," New York Magazine reported.  Amazing how one holocaust differs from another.

OPERATION CAST LEAD - The Israeli military, under the orders of Ehud Barak, used white phosphorus to kill the people of Gaza during it's Yuletide aggression of 2008.  "When Israel’s military actions ended on January 18, some 1,400 Palestinians had been killed. Among the dead were hundreds of unarmed civilians, including about 300 children. Burning was the most common cause of death." (Source: "Operation Cast Lead: It's Zionese for Burning People")

James Long works for the fire department, an agency of the City of New York, which is headed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who reportedly said he wanted to tell widows they needed to “suck it up” and move on.  James Long works for the Bloomberg administration and has strict guidelines and orders that he has to abide by if he wants to keep his job and pension.  If this means he has to lie to the public about what happened on 9-11, he will do so.  In this respect he is certainly not the only one. 

I have spoken with a number of public officials and experts who should know, but pretend to be completely ignorant of the evidence of molten metal and the extremely high temperatures that occurred during the destruction of the World Trade Center.  The energy source that created the molten metal that poured off the 82nd floor of the South Tower before it collapsed evidently remained highly energetic beneath the rubble for 99 days.  In spite of abundant evidence of molten metal in the rubble, even Dr. Cahill, who discovered and documented the evidence of vaporized metals in the smoke, refuses to discuss the subject.  When I asked Dr. Cahill what could have created the large amount of molten metal, he said there was no thermite in the dust and hung up the phone.

Molten metal poured from the South Tower for seven minutes before the tower was demolished with explosives.  This was the location of an intense hot spot in the rubble as seen in the infrared imaging of September 16, 2001, where it is labeled Point G (~1,346 degrees F).

Pools of molten iron were found beneath the rubble weeks after 9-11.  New York firefighters and engineers testified having seen molten steel flowing "like lava", but the FDNY and government officials refuse to discuss this evidence.

A scientific paper written in 2008 by Dr. Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, and others, entitled “Extremely high temperatures during the World Trade Center destruction” presents evidence to help explain the nature of the intense hot spots in which iron boiled beneath the rubble.  This paper discusses the large amount of tiny solidified droplets (spheres) of molten iron and other metals found in the huge dust clouds that rolled across Manhattan on 9-11.  These spheres were discovered by scientists who examined the dust for a study done by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).  The USGS study did not explain what had caused the large amount of molten spheres but included photographs (i.e. micrographs) of them.  The Jones paper includes a micrograph of a similar “molybdenum-rich spherule”, which had been examined for the USGS study but left out of the published report.  Molybdenum has an extremely high melting point of 2,623 degrees C or 4,753 degrees F.  When molybdenum trioxide is combined with ultrafine aluminum it creates an extremely powerful thermitic explosive - and molten molybdenum.  An energetic explosive of this type would explain the presence of tiny molybdenum spheres in the dust.

The thermitic material made with aluminum and molybdenum trioxide (top bar) releases more energy per cc than high explosives.  The other thermitic composites shown yield even more.

As the paper by Dr. Jones concludes: 

The temperatures required for the observed spherule-formation and evaporation of materials observed in the WTC dust are significantly higher than temperatures reachable by the burning of jet fuel and office materials in the WTC buildings.  The temperatures required to melt iron (1,538 degrees C) and molybdenum (2,623 degrees C), and to vaporize lead (1,740 degrees C) and aluminosilicates (about 2,760 degrees C), are completely out of reach of the fires in the WTC buildings (maximum 1,100 degrees C)… The data provide strong evidence that chemical reactions which were both violent and highly-exothermic contributed to the destruction of the WTC buildings.

The evidence indicates that novel energetic materials created with military grade nanotechnology were used in the demolition of the three towers that were brought down on 9-11.  These materials are made from a variety of metals and elements, traces of which were found in both the smoke and the rubble.  The reactions of these materials generated incredible heat prior to and during the demolition and pulverization of the Twin Towers.  These thermitic materials cannot be doused with water and do not require the presence of oxygen to react.  The material continued to react beneath the rubble causing the unexplained intense hot spots that produced the ultrafine particles that rose in the smoke.  These particles are extremely toxic and have caused cancer and other diseases in many of the first responders and others who worked on or near the pile.  This nano-structured explosive material pulverized the Twin Towers on 9-11 and has killed many more who have succumbed to the toxic ultrafine particles it produced as it burned beneath the pile.  This thermitic material is the real smoking gun of 9-11. 

A firefighter walks through the rubble of the World Trade Center.  How many more will die as a result of their exposure to the toxic smoke?
