FENTON, Hereward. Australian 9/11 truther: "Why I became a September 11 truther"

Hereward Fenton is a researcher in the 9/11 truth movement in Australia, a senior computer programmer and has a BA in anthropology and religious studies. He is editor and webmaster of www.911oz.com (see: http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/hereward-fenton-31596.html ).


Hereward Fenton on why he became a 9/11 truther (2011): “The central argument of the movement is that 9/11 was a staged, false flag operation designed to propel the US and its allies into war for the sake of profit, oil and empire… let’s agree on what we can agree on:

• Planes were flown into the twin towers.
• Towers 1, 2 and 7 collapsed, symmetrically, at close to free fall, pulverising most of the concrete of those buildings into a fine dust which covered Manhattan.
• The Pentagon was hit by a third plane.
• A fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
• Around 3,000 people died as a direct result of the attacks.

We can all agree with the mainstream account up to this point… It is when we consider the “why”, the “how” and the “who” of these events that I and many others radically depart from the mainstream narrative of 9/11… In regard to the “how” questions, the only topic I will address in this piece is the collapse of the towers. All three collapsed at close to free fall, including Building 7, which was not even hit by a plane. There are numerous testimonies from first responders who saw heard and felt explosions before the buildings went down. The free fall rate of collapse is strong proof that explosives were used, and there is no alternative to this conclusion that is consistent with the laws of physics.” [1].

Hereward Fenton (a researcher in the 9/11 truth movement in Australia and  a senior computer programmer who holds a BA in anthropology and religious studies) (2010): “At the time of writing, 357 architectural and engineering professionals have signed a petition which directly challenges the National Institute of Standards & Training's official finding that the destruction of these massive buildings was caused solely by structural damage from the impact of jet airliners and the resulting fires.The petition, demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation, states, in part:"...the 9/11 investigation must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7."This alarming statement is based on evidence from many sources, including observations of the structural behaviour of the towers as they collapsed, the known characteristics of steel framed buildings, eyewitness testimony of explosions, and research into the chemical composition of dust recovered from the collapse zone. Current research indicates that an incendiary (thermite) may have been used to sever the massive box columns of the towers, causing the buildings to plummet to the ground at close to free-fall speed… Films such as Loose Change and 9/11 Mysteries have been viewed by millions on the internet, and opinion polls have consistently shown that a large proportion of the public does not accept the official narrative of 9/11. Many believe there has been a major cover-up, while others believe that September 11 was an "inside job"” (Hereward Fenton, “Unanswered 9/11 questions”, ABC , The Crum, 29 September 2010: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-05-16/31852 ) .
