The attacks of 9/11 are still in question. Many remain skeptical about what happened that day and who is responsible. Bin Laden and al Qaeda? Or someone else? The official version, presented by the mainstream media, is based on explanations of US authorities and the “9/11 Commission Report”, finished in 2004. On the contrary there still exist several alternative theories, a number of them reasonable, others merely absurd. Besides any theories there are proven facts.
Fact 1: Insider trading before the attacks
In the days leading to 9/11 observers see significant insider trading at the stock markets – a strong indication of foreknowledge. Certain people are betting on falling stock prices of companies, that will suffer from the attacks later on. Example: The bets on falling stock prices of the two involved airlines (“United Airlines” and “American Airlines”) generate a return of over 400 percent in just one week – in total about 16 million Dollars.
All these trades had harmless reasons. There wasn´t any insider trading regarding 9/11. The investors had no conceivable ties to al Qaeda.
Financial experts from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, published a detailed study in 2011, proving that insider trading occurred shortly before 9/11. On the other hand the details of the investigation of the Security and Exchange Commission on this issue have never been published. The names of the individual investors remain secret till today.
Fact 2: 2 planes hit – 3 towers collapsed
On 9/11 two towers of the World Trade Center in New York are hit by planes and collapse later on. But in the course of the day a third skyscraper, the over 170 m high WTC 7, also collapses, totally symmetrical, precisely in its own footprint – without being hit by an airplane.
According to the final report of investigation on this, published in 2008, the collapse of WTC 7 was caused by fires, which were started by falling debris of the two other collapsing towers.
Never before or after 9/11 did a steel framed high-rise building collapse in this special way because of fire. Also a damaged building, especially one being higher than 100 m, never collapses totally symmetrical, precisely in its own footprint. When it falls, then it naturally tends to the one particular side weakening first. Exception: the building is crashed by controlled demolition. Meanwhile there are substantial indications for this suggestion. A group of scientists around the American physicist Steven Jones and the Danish chemist Niels Harrit has proven the existence of a highly effective explosive in the dust of the crashed towers. An international association of more than 1.500 professional architects and engineers demands a new investigation of the attacks in this respect.
Fact 3: No interceptors
In total 4 planes are hijacked and crashed on 9/11. None of them is intercepted by a fighter jet.
The military didn´t expect the suicidal hijacking of inbound flights. Therefore the air defense had to be improvised on that day.
The US air defense tested the hijacking of inbound flights by suicide terrorists in several exercises before 9/11. The air defense hadn´t to be improvised, it followed tested protocols. Nevertheless both fighter squadrons starting while the attacks were directed to the wrong direction exactly in the important minutes. By whom and why is still not investigated. The tape recordings of the communication between fighter pilots and air defense command while the flights were deleted or lost after 9/11.
Fact 4: Simultaneous wargames
Precisely on the morning of 9/11 a wide ranging exercise of the air defense is taking place. It´s name: Vigilant Guardian. Part of the exercise is a virtual hijacking, to be tested exactly while the real hijackings occur. In this same hour a simulation team inserts virtual radar signals on the screens of the air defense, while the military officers there are trying to react on the real hijackings. Also the air defense can´t see the radar signal of the first hijacked plane, although it´s clearly visible at the same time on the radar screens of the civilian air traffic controllers not taking part in the exercise.
None, just the general statement that the exercise had not obstructed the reaction of the air defense.
The air defense has completely failed on 9/11 – not once, not twice, but four times in a row. The role of the exercise in this failure is still unclear and was not part of the official investigation.
Fact 5: Perfect flight into radar gap
The third hijacked plane on 9/11 takes off from Washington and will be directed into the Pentagon right there. The distance between airport and target ist just a few miles. Nevertheless the plane starts flying about 250 miles to the west before it turns to the opposite direction. Exactly at this turning point is a small zone of poor radar coverage, a so called „radar gap“. That´s why the plane is dissapearing for a while from the screens of the air defense. Right before the Pentagon the plane is maneuvred in a further very precise and skillful way: it makes a sharp 330 degree turn while loosing altitude extremely fast at the same time and than crashes with top speed exactly in the first floor of the Pentagon.
The following questions need to be adressed: How should the alleged hijackers have known, that the radar gap existed, where it was located, and when they would have arrived there? What sense did it make for them to fly a detour of roughly 500 miles? Finally: The huge skills of the alleged pilot, whose flight school teacher said he couldn´t even fly a Cessna safely before 9/11, appear almost incredible. All anomalies mentioned could easily be explained, if the plane was remotely controlled. But this was never officially investigated.
Fact 6: No identification of the hijackers
The alleged hijackers with Mohammed Atta at the top have never been conclusively forensically identified. The remains of most passengers of the four flights were identified by there DNA found at the crash sites. But not the remains of the 19 alleged terrorists. Allegedly their relatives hadn´t provided DNA samples for comparison to the FBI´s investigators. Furthermore the flight manifests were only partially published and are inconsistent with the claimed hijackers.
Fact 7: No claim of responsibility
After 9/11 no one claimed responsibility for the attacks. Nobody announced any political demands.
Osama bin Laden has claimed responsibility for 9/11 in a video.
Immediately after the attacks Bin Laden made it clear several times that he had nothing to do with 9/11. The video where he allegedly claims responsibility was published only three months after the attacks – by the Pentagon. An independent translation, made on behalf of German public television, concluded the video had been mistranslated in the critical statements. Furthermore the FBI admitted in 2006 that it had no reliable evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11. His responsibility for the attacks remains an unproven allegation till today.
