The absence of 110 concrete floors and the steel pans stacked like pancakes in the rubble was obvious.  How 220 acre-size floors of concrete were transformed into clouds of burning dust is the question that a proper examination of the steel would have answered. 

The 4-inch deep concrete floors of the World Trade Center sat in steel pans supported by trusses.  The explosive thermitic coating that pulverized the floors was probably applied to the steel trusswork and undersides of the floor pans, probably under the guise of being rust- or fire-proofing.  It may have also been applied in the electrical and telephone ducts that ran through the concrete floors.

The price of scrap steel for export in 2001-2003 was at its lowest level in 50 years, between $70-80 per ton.  Why would a steel trader in New Jersey spend $25 per ton to ship the WTC steel to distant Asian smelters when it could have been shipped for a fraction of the cost to U.S. steel companies? 

Robert Kelman, the man whose company handled much of the steel from the World Trade Center, said about the debris being brought to his Jersey City scrapyard, "The concrete was literally pulverized; all you're left with is steel and dust."  Because the remaining steel would reveal how the 220 concrete floors and their steel pans were pulverized, the architects of terror had to make sure that the steel was quickly cut up and sent to Asian smelters where it would be destroyed far from the eyes of investigators.  The task to destroy this crucial evidence was taken care of by the dedicated Zionist agents who controlled the mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani.

National Public Radio (NPR) reported in February 2002 that Hugo Neu had received, processed and shipped almost 230,000 tons of steel from the World Trade Center. Kelman told NPR that some of the steel went directly from ground zero to barges -- to his junkyard in Jersey City. At the Hugo Neu junkyard the girders and columns were cut into pieces shorter than five feet (60 inches) and mixed in with other scrap before being sent to smelters in Asia, although the shipping cost was obviously much higher than sending it to an American steel maker.  Cut, mix, and ship, seems to have been the Hugo Neu program for the crucial evidence from the World Trade Center. 

The World Trade Center complex contained an estimated 285,000 tons of steel.  In September 2002 the Associated Press reported that Hugo Neu had processed 250,000 tons (88 percent) of WTC steel:  "The company that filled Megasteel's order, Hugo Neu Schnitzer East of Jersey City, New Jersey, said it had handled 250,000 tons of trade center scrap and had sent shipments to 11 countries, including Malaysia, China, South Korea and Japan."

Robert Kelman of Hugo Neu told the press that he was selling the steel for about $105 a ton. But he also paid up to $25 a ton to ship it. "I'm hoping I net $5 a ton, but I don't know," he said. The two recyclers who bought the steel from the World Trade Center were taking on a huge amount of steel in the most depressed scrap market of their time.  Was there a hidden partner who managed the destruction of the steel? 

Today, Hugo Neu is invested in an Israeli venture capital fund called the Agua-Agro Fund. The Agua-Agro fund is managed by Nir Belzer, a senior manager and co-founder of Israel's Millenium Materials Technologies Funds with a man named Oren Gafri.

From 1979 to 1989, Gafri served as an executive of the Israeli Aircraft Industries Ltd (IAI), Bedek Division, as the Manager of Materials and Process, in charge of the Chemical, Metallurgical, Composite and Non Destructive Testing (NDT) facilities, Labs and R&D. He trained at Israel's Nuclear Research Center (Dimona) in the Negev Desert.  Gafri is a specialist in energetic nano-composite coatings exactly like the one that pulverized the 220 acres of concrete floors in the World Trade Center. Belzer and Gafri's MMT Fund is
invested in several companies that produce such coatings. These connections are certainly not entirely coincidental.

GIULIANI THE ZIONIST - New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani speaks at a pro-Israel rally on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. 15 April 2002.

Giuliani's comments in Israel reveal his hawkish position on Iran (note the background) and ignorance of the Middle East.  Giuliani said he was disappointed that Obama was "supporting those who wanted to overthrow [former Egyptian president Hosni] Mubarak and not those trying to overthrow the regime in Iran."

PARTNERS IN CRIME - Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (C), New York Governor George Pataki and New York City Mayor-elect Michael Bloomberg joined hands on December 9, 2001 at Sharon's office in Jerusalem. Giuliani has been complicit in the cover up of the Israeli-managed false-flag terror attacks of 9/11 from the beginning.


Giuliani's partners in his consulting company, Giuliani Partners, are all key players from his administration who were involved in the 9/11 cover up and destruction of crucial evidence from the crime scene. The executives at Giuliani Partners include Pasquale J. D'Amuro, the FBI inspector in charge of the 9/11 investigation, who supervised the "non-investigation" at the World Trade Center, and Richard Sheirer, the "Jewish knight" who oversaw the removal and destruction of the crucial steel evidence by having it sent to Zionist-run scrapyards in New Jersey whence it was shipped to Asian smelters. Between D'Amuro and Sheirer, the people at Giuliani Partners certainly know who authorized the destruction of this crucial evidence from the scene of the worst case of mass murder in American history, but they aren't talking. Why have these key players in the 9/11 cover up all joined Giuliani Partners and who are they serving?

Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert (L) and Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at a press briefing about the recovery operations at the World Trade Center disaster area September 21, 2001 at the Emergency Operations Center in New York City. What is most peculiar about this visit is that Giuliani hid the fact that Olmert had been in New York City on the day before 9/11 and probably on the day itself. I am the only journalist to have reported on Olmert's secret visit to New York City on 9/11. Why was Olmert in New York City on 10 September 2001, and why has his visit been kept secret?

My research to identify the person who authorized the destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center focused on the men who worked with Mayor Rudy Giuliani on 9/11 and who continue to work with him.  Richard J. Sheirer, then commissioner of Giuliani's Office of Emergency Management, is a likely candidate as is the mayor himself.  Having called and written to the offices of both Giuliani and Sheirer, I am still waiting for their responses.  I turned to the former officials of New York City after Michael Chertoff responded by saying that he had not authorized the removal of the steel.  This indicates that Attorney General John Ashcroft and his assistant, Michael Chertoff, who directed the 9/11 investigation, allowed Giuliani's men to make the decision to send the steel from the World Trade Center to scrapyards in New Jersey, whence it was quickly sent to Asian smelters to be destroyed.

Hugo Neu Schnitzer East, of Jersey City, said it handled 250,000 tons of World Trade Center scrap and shipped it to 11 countries, including Malaysia, China, South Korea and Japan. The firm's general manager, Bob Kelman, senior vice president of Hugo NEU Schnitzer East, said steel from the twin towers was sliced into pieces with industrial guillotines or blow torches and thrown in with other scrap before being shipped.  Kelman told NPR, "Steel's the most recycled product in the world. Over 60 million tons of it is recycled in the United States annually. The most efficient process for making new steel is by recycling it from steel scrap."

So, why was the steel from the World Trade Center sent to smelters halfway around the world?  The answer is obvious.  The steel was crucial evidence from the crime scene that would have revealed that the towers had been destroyed using explosives, Thermite, and a sophisticated nanocomposite of super-thermite.  The steel had to be quickly removed and destroyed to protect the criminal network behind the demolition.

Pasquale J. D'Amuro - The Giuliani partner and FBI special agent who managed the 9/11 cover up.

Pasquale J. D'Amuro is from the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area, a key Mafia smuggling town since the days of Prohibition.  Jewish and Italian mafia crime bosses worked closely together with the "Jewish navy" smuggling Bronfman whisky into the U.S. from Canada. 

D'Amuro was the FBI's main man heading the investigation of the 9/11 attacks.  As we now know, D'Amuro and the FBI, under the control of an Israeli son of the Mossad, Michael Chertoff, managed what can only be called a criminal cover up of what really happened on 9/11.  D'Amuro played the key role as the FBI confiscated crucial evidence and allowed the steel from the World Trade Center to be destroyed.  What kind of criminal investigator allows the evidence from the crime scene to be destoyed before it can be properly examined? 

On 31 January 2002, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III,
announced the appointment of Pasquale "Pat" D'Amuro as Assistant Director for Counterterrorism:

"Pat's long experience in conducting counterterrorism investigations includes heading the PENTTBOM [9/11] investigation and overseeing the investigations of the first World Trade Center bombing, the embassy bombings in East Africa, and the U.S.S. Cole attack. He possesses strong leadership abilities, demonstrated during his tenure as Associate Special Agent in Charge and Acting Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Office. These investigative and leadership talents, refined by the experience of a 22-year career as a Special Agent of the FBI, make him well prepared to take on the challenge of directing the Counterterrorism Division during a critical period of reorganization and refocusing of the work of the FBI."

New York magazine's Amanda Griscom wrote a revealing article entitled "Man Behind the Mayor" that spotlighted Richard Sheirer and his key role as the "Wizard of O.E.M." in managing the "clean up" of the crime scene at Ground Zero. Sheirer admitted that he prided himself on being "invisible", saying, "I think it's very valuable to be invisible for the job I do.":

Quiet and camera-shy, Sheirer makes most of his public appearances standing behind the mayor's left shoulder. He's the one who's not Kerik or Von Essen, the short, stout man who bows his head in the limelight, his eyes downcast behind huge square glasses, his jowls drooping as he whispers updates in the mayor's ear. He's the guy Giuliani calls "the man behind the curtain." He's the wizard of OEM...

Since September 11, Sheirer has taken charge of the biggest cleanup effort in American history, coordinating 100 federal, state, and local agencies, including FEMA. He's become, in effect, the CEO of a company with thousands of workers and a budget that could run up to $40 billion -- or, if you prefer, the mayor of the hot zone. He calls in the city's Department of Transportation to patch up the streets and has the Department of Design and Construction hang netting so broken glass won't fall on workers below. He orders Con Ed and Verizon to rehabilitate buildings without power or phone service, then gets the Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Design and Construction to make sure they're safe. If they pass the test, he signs the documents that open them up to the public. "OEM is in charge," says Mike Byrne, deputy federal coordinating officer of FEMA for this incident. "Sheirer gives the marching orders. So far, we're blown away by OEM's performance." ...

"One of the things I pride myself on," says Sheirer, "is that, for a short, round guy, I can be pretty invisible. I think it's very valuable to be invisible for the job I do. It's important to me to be prepared, to get in, get it done, and get out. My people understand -- we don't need fanfare. Invisibility enhances our ability to work with everyone because they know we're not looking to take the limelight."
The Jewish Week reported that Sheirer had been named a "Jewish Knight" by the New York Board of Rabbis.  Saying it was "correcting what it called an 'oversight'," the Board of Rabbis "named Sheirer a 'Jewish Knight' after Britain lionized Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and then-Police and Fire Commissioners Bernard Kerik and Thomas Von Essen.  Sheirer stayed on into the administration of Mayor Bloomberg, to manage the removal of the rubble saying he was doing so "to finish what I started."

"This knight is different from all other knights," joked Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, the Fire Department's Jewish chaplain and president of the Board of Rabbis."  Sheirer comes from a family of Lithuanian Jews from Kaunas (Kovno) named Sher.  The Sheirer spelling comes from a misspelling of his name on his father's birth certificate.

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani points to the rubble of the former World Trade Center for Mayor George A. Spadoro (L) of Edison, N.J., Mayor Marc Morial (2nd-R) of New Orleans on 26 January 2002.  Richard J. Sheirer, "Ground Zero's Jewish Knight" and director of Mayors Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is on the right. 
"The Man Behind the Mayor" is an excellent article in New York magazine about Sheirer's work at Ground Zero, under whose oversight the structural steel (crucial evidence from the crime scene) was destroyed before it could be examined by engineers. Who's to blame?

Giuliani's fawning support for hard-line Zionism is also due to his orthodox Jewish handlers, such as Bruce Teitelbaum, his former chief of staff and campaign adviser, who is closely tied to Israeli causes and clients. Giuliani, whose father was a Mafia gangster, is very hawkish on Israel because Zionist hawks control him through the millions of dollars they have given him. An article in the Wall Street Journal from December 2007, entitled "Giuliani's Profitable Partnership" explains how Giuliani was paid more than $600,000 in speaking fees (for 4 speeches), from the diamond-trading Steinmetz family of Israel and their private equity firm, Sage Capital Growth. Giuliani's $600,000 pay-off from the Mossad-linked Steinmetz family was arranged by Geoffrey N. Hess, another Giuliani Partner. (For more about the Steinmetz family connections read "Iceland - The Hallmarks of an Israeli Operation")

Bruce Teitelbaum (r), an orthodox Jewish Zionist, was Giuliani's chief of staff and "aggressive and dogged right-hand man." No wonder how devoted Zionists filled every important slot in the Giuliani adminstration. Teitelbaum is married to the daughter of an orthodox rabbi from Forest Hills...

Sara "Suri" Kasirer, who represents Israeli clients as New York's No.1 lobbyist. Kasirer is the vice president of Edah, a religious Zionist organization devoted to the State of Israel, and is on the board of the National Jewish Democratic Council. The team of Kasirer and Teitelbaum managed Giuliani's close relationship to the Jewish community and the State of Israel.

Yet another Giuliani partner, Michael D. Hess, was stuck in WTC 7 on 9/11 after explosions destroyed the lobby of the building at about 9:03, when the second plane struck the South Tower -- and when the basement of the adjacent WTC 6 was apparently blown to smithereens. Michael Hess had to be rescued from the 8th floor of WTC 7, as can be seen in this newly released video footage.

About 5 hours after Michael Hess was rescued from the building, WTC 7, which had not been hit by an aircraft, fell straight down into its footprint in what can only be explained as a pre-planned demolition.
To get an idea of how much money Giuliani has been paid for simply "running" for office, I suggest this page on, which shows the Zionist Ira Rennert giving $100,000 to the Giuliani senate campaign in 2000. Rennert is the billionaire Zionist mining magnate who owns a lead smelter in Peru where the lead pollution is so bad that all the children in the town are poisoned. Rennert is also a friend and supporter of Bibi Netanyahu from the right-wing Likud party.

I am working on the final chapter of
Solving 9/11, which focuses on the destruction of the crucial steel evidence from the World Trade Center. In the interest of accuracy and completeness this effort requires contacting the key players in the administration of President George W. Bush. I called and wrote to John Ashcroft and Michael Chertoff, respectively the U.S. Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General during the Bush administration.  Ashcroft has not yet responded; Chertoff has.

Michael Chertoff, who headed the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice at the time, responded to my email question.  Chertoff said that he does not know who authorized the destruction of the crucial evidence from the World Trade Center.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation, it should be noted, an agency of the Criminal Division of the Dept. of Justice under Michael Chertoff, led the 9/11 investigation

FBI Director Robert Mueller (right) at a press conference as Attorney General John Ashcroft looks on September 27, 2001 in Washington, DC. Robert Mueller had only been director of the FBI for one week when 9/11 occurred.
This is to say that Chertoff, the official who had the highest managerial responsibility for the FBI investigation, says he does not know who authorized the destruction of the evidence from the crime scene his agency controlled.  How believable is that? 

The FBI, which controlled the criminal investigation, had ultimate authority over the evidence from the World Trade Center.
The FBI website says this about its 9/11 investigation:

Our ensuing investigation of the attacks of 9/11—code-named “PENTTBOM”—was our largest investigation ever. At the peak of the case, more than half our agents worked to identify the hijackers and their sponsors and, with other agencies, to head off any possible future attacks. We followed more than half-a-million investigative leads, including several hundred thousand tips from the public. The attack and crash sites also represented the largest crime scenes in FBI history.

A New York Times article entitled "Ground Zero Illness Clouding Giuliani's Legacy" reported that Giuliani “seized control” of the World Trade Center site.  Why did the U.S. government allow Giuliani and his Zionist partners to destroy the crucial evidence from the crime scene?

Here is the email exchange between me and Michael Chertoff:

Mr. Chertoff,

I am a journalist working on an article about the destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center.  The questions that I am posing herewith are for the purpose of this article.

When Kenneth Holden of the Department of Design and Construction of New York City gave his statement to the 9/11 Commission on April 1, 2003, he said that he had received "verbal permission" to send the steel to scrap yards in New Jersey, but failed to name the person who had authorized the move.

Did you give the permission to send the steel from the World Trade Center to the scrap yard? If you did not authorize the destruction of the steel, who did?

Chertoff responded the same day:

From: Chertoff, Michael
Subject: Re: Question for M. Chertoff on WTC Steel
Date: Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 11:39 AM

No. No idea.
I responded to Chertoff on March 9:

Mr. Chertoff,

Thank you for your prompt response.

When Commissioner Holden was reappointed head of New York City’s Department of Design and Construction in January 2002, Mayor Bloomberg praised him saying:

New Yorkers are fortunate to have Commissioner Holden agree to remain as Commissioner of DDC. Over the last four months he has done a terrific job managing the clean up of the World Trade Center and so that the reconstruction process for Lower Manhattan can begin. By coordinating the movement of millions of tons of steel and rubble, excavating one of the most dangerous work sites in the world all seemingly ahead of schedule, under budget and without a fatality, Kenneth Holden has been the unsung hero of this enormous task.
Can you tell me why U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, which you headed, allowed Mayor Giuliani to “seize control” of the crime scene and make decisions that resulted in the hasty destruction of crucial evidence before it could be properly examined?

The New York City Department of Design and Construction reportedly oversaw the recovery efforts. A New York Times article entitled
"Ground Zero Illness Clouding Giuliani's Legacy" of 14 May 2007 reported that Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani “seized control” of the World Trade Center site:

An examination of Mr. Giuliani’s handling of the extraordinary recovery operation during his last months in office shows that he seized control and largely limited the influence of experienced federal agencies…

A Mayor in Control - From the beginning, there was no doubt that Mr. Giuliani and his team ruled the hellish disaster site. Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, all with extensive disaster response experience, arrived almost immediately, only to be placed on the sideline. One Army Corps official said Mr. Giuliani acted like a “benevolent dictator.”

Despite the presence of those federal experts, Mr. Giuliani assigned the ground zero cleanup to a largely unknown city agency, the Department of Design and Construction. Kenneth Holden, the department’s commissioner until January 2004, said in a deposition in the federal lawsuit against the city that he initially expected FEMA or the Army Corps to try to take over the cleanup operation. Mr. Giuliani never let them.

Why did President Bush and Attorney General Ashcroft allow Mayor Giuliani to “take over the cleanup operation”?
