Hi All,

Something interesting happened
last week but most of the world didn‚&euro;&trade;t notice. What
happened was conclusive scientific proof was published that demonstrates,
beyond all doubt, that 9/11 was an inside job. That sounds strange to say,
conclusive proof and yet no one noticed. Well, in politics is that so odd?

A retired physicist and a number of other
scientists co-authored a scientific paper, which was published last week,
in which they document the presence of a very high-tech explosive called
‚&euro;&oelig;nanothermite‚&euro; in dust samples from areas
around the World Trade Center. The existence of this explosive in the dust
was established by sophisticated laboratory techniques. Extrapolating from
their samples it appears there were tons of explosives in the World Trade
Center and the residue of that is in the dust ‚&euro;&ldquo; it is
the smoking gun.

There can be no rational doubt
that 9/11 was an inside job because those chemicals do not exist in nature
or in any materials existing in the World Trade Center. They had to be
explosives put in place for that purpose. That is the only logical

We know for sure that 9/11 was an
inside job. Now why do I have to tell you (the reader) about this? Why are
you not reading this in the New York Times? Why, better yet, are you not
hearing this on Democracy Now? It is hard to say, but clearly this is
difficult for people. It is hard to admit that our government would
slaughter thousands of innocent people and blame others to rally support
for systematic violence in other parts of the world.

It is hard to admit that our government would murder us, lie to us, and
use those lies to justify the slaughter a million Iraqis and stealing
their oil. But that is what happened. We know it was an inside job, now we
just have to get enough people to notice since the most of the media (the
story below is a very curious exception) simply ignore science --
especially when it matters.

I am posting this
message on a couple of lists where this topic has been controversial, in
the past. I trust that finding the smoking gun will satisfy the doubters
now. We have to stop these people, which seems to mean at present forcing
the Obama Administration to investigate Bush era crimes (even though such
an investigation will find the Democrats complicit). The nation deserves
the truth and the world deserves the peace that can follow admitting the

Traces of Explosives in 9/11 Dust, Scientists Say

Tiny red and gray chips found in the dust from the collapse of the
World Trade Center contain highly explosive materials ‚&euro;&rdquo;
proof, according to a former BYU professor, that 9/11 is still a sinister

Physicist Steven E. Jones, who retired
from Brigham Young University in 2006 after the school recoiled from the
controversy surrounding his 9/11 theories, is one of nine authors on a
paper published last week in the online, peer-reviewed Open Chemical
Physics Journal. Also listed as authors are BYU physics professor Jeffrey
Farrer and a professor of nanochemistry at the University of Copenhagen in

For several years, Jones has theorized
that prepositioned explosives, not fires from jet fuel, caused the rapid,
symmetrical collapse of the two World Trade Center buildings, plus the
collapse of a third building, WTC-7.

The newest
research, according to the journal authors, shows that dust from the
collapsing towers contained a "nanothermite" material that is
highly explosive. Although the article draws no conclusions about the
source and purpose of the explosives, Jones has previously supported a
theory that the collapse of the WTC towers was part of a government
conspiracy to ignore warnings about the 9/11 terrorists so that the attack
would propel America to wage war against Afghanistan and Iraq. The next
step, Jones said in a phone interview on Monday, is for someone to
investigate "who made the stuff and why it was there."

A layer of dust lay over parts of Manhattan immediately
following the collapse of the towers, and it was samples of this dust that
Jones and fellow researchers requested in a 2006 paper, hoping to
determine "the whole truth of the events of that day." They
eventually tested four samples they received from New Yorkers.

One sample was from a man who had swept up a handful of dust
on the Brooklyn Bridge, where he was walking when the second tower fell.
As the journal authors note, "It was, therefore, definitely not
contaminated by the steel-cutting or clean-up operations at Ground Zero,
which began later. Furthermore, it is not mixed with dust from WTC-7,
which fell hours later." Another man collected dust in his apartment,
about five blocks from the World Trade Center, on the morning of Sept. 12.
There was a layer about an inch thick on a stack of folded laundry near an
open window.

Red/gray chips, averaging in size
between .2 and 3 mm, were found in all four dust samples. The chips were
then analyzed using scanning electron microscopy and other high-tech
tools. The red layer of the chips, according to the researchers, contains
a "highly energetic" form of thermite. While normal thermite (a
mixture of finely granulated aluminum and an oxide of metal) can be
incendiary, "super thermite" is explosive. He says there is no
benign explanation for the thermite in the WTC dust.

Jones made headlines in 2005 when he argued that the rapid and
symmetrical fall of the World Trade Center looked like the result of
pre-positioned explosives. He argued that fires alone wouldn't have been
hot enough to crumble the buildings; and that even if struck by planes,
the towers should have been strong enough to support the weight of the
tops as they crumbled ‚&euro;&rdquo; unless they were leveled by

Essentially forced to retire, Jones
says he is now paying for research out of his own pocket. He likens
himself to Galileo and Newton, who stood by their consciences. "I
would like to think I could stand up for the truth," he says. The
dust study vindicates his earlier theories, Jones says, but he has mixed
feelings about the implications. "As a young student said to me a
while back: 'It's exciting from a scientific point of view, because things
are now making sense. But I feel sad for my
