Until comparatively recently I had not questioned the official line about what happened on that awful day, a day that just might have provided the democratic world with the most significant date in world history. As someone who cannot help but think the U.S. is involved in one way or another in all the unrest around the world, my reaction, I am not proud to admit, on seeing the devastation, was to say the Americans got what was coming to them. I do not think that now. Over 3,000 people died that day, not one of whom deserved their fate. Not one.
Conspiracy theories interest me. The murder of J.F.K. is a prime example of no one, seemingly, believing that Lee Harvey Oswald could have possibly fired the bulled that killed Kennedy. The Roswell incident, too, is an intrigue that refuses to go away. I am also, even at this grand age, naive. I continue to believe in honesty and endeavour. I still expect the information that comes through the television, on the radio and in print to be accurate reporting of events. The truth, I contend, is everyone's best friend. Someone who can abuse the truth is capable of abusing anything and everyone.
So when I came into contact with the theory that the Twin Towers were felled by controlled demolition I believed. I truly believed. The argument was well-made, especially the bit about the only skyscrapers ever to be destroyed by fire were the World Trade Centre buildings. I saw photographs of other skyscrapers ravaged by fire and they remained standing, with nearly all of them returned to usefulness. The evidence fitted the facts. The Twin Towers fell into their own footprint, as is the case with controlled demolition. Case closed. The American government and justice system have a lot of answering to do.
I was wrong. My ignorance was found out. The Twin Towers were not victim to high explosive, thermite or mini-nukes. If only they were.
Seekers of truth should turn to Dr. Judy Wood's book 'Where Did The Towers Go?' It is a forensic study of all the available facts carried out by someone eminently qualified to do so. As far as I am aware she has no axe to grind and in her book she drives a horse and carriage through popular conspiracy theories. All she is interested in is the truth. To quote Dr. Wood. 'If you listen to the evidence carefully enough, it will speak to you and tell you exactly what happened. If you don't know what happened, keep listening until you do. The evidence always tells the truth. The key is not to allow yourself to be distracted away from seeing what the evidence is telling you. Empirical evidence is the truth that theory must mimic.'
'Where Did The Towers Go?' is packed to the rafters with evidence. Not opinion. She does not address who did it? Or why? That is not her expertise. But what happened and by what method is her expertise. The book is on the expensive side, nearly £40 with postage and packing, but it runs to nearly 500 pages, with as many graphs and photographs. I must warn you, though. It is a shocking read because it smacks wholly of the truth.
The fact that many of you have not heard of Judy Wood is an indictment on mainstream media. What she has to say should be heard by every man, woman and child on the planet. Read her book and see if you can challenge her findings?
