Newly released audio recordings offer a unique insight and moving perspective on 9/11 and the fateful minutes that changed America forever.
On the morning of the attacks, hundreds of hours of military and air traffic control conversations wereptured on tape painting a chilling and tragic picture of events spiralling inexorably out of control. With events unfolding at breakneck-speed, the tapes reveal in minute-by-minute detail, the chaos and confusion wrought by the attacks.
Revelations include how Air Force fighter jets, scrambled to protect Washington, set out in the wrong direction - ending up 60 miles out across the Atlantic ocean and that permission to shoot down hijacked passenger planes only came through after the last plane crashed.
And while air traffic controllers watched the second plane crash into the World Trade Center tower, fighter jets were still 100 miles away from New York and amid all the confusion it took 39 minutes for the news of United 93's hijack to reach the military.
With testimonies from the people who appear on the tapes, the film vividly conveys the emotion, courage and panic in the voices of air traffic controllers and military personnel whose job it was to protect America as it came under attack.

Andrew Maxwell takes five typical young British conspiracy believers on a road trip from New York to Washington to try and tackle the truth about the events of 9/11.
This September marks the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, one of the biggest terrorist atrocities of the 21st Century. Nineteen hijackers, all members of Al Qaeda, crashed four planes on American soil, leading to the deaths of 2,973 innocent people.
This horrific event has generated a multitude of conspiracy theories that contradict the official findings of the US government's investigation into the events of that day.
Andrew Maxwell, a comedian, believes in the findings of the official investigation, which claim the responsibility for the attack lies with Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. He thinks the conspiracies theories are unsubstantiated nonsense. So in this film he offers to take five young Brits, who believe some of these conspiracy theories, on a road-trip from New York to Washington. They visit Ground Zero where two planes hit the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, home of vast American defence HQ and Shanksville in Pennsylvania where United 93 crashed.
Each of them believes different elements of the conspiracy theories. Charlotte, a North London nanny who witnessed the attacks, thinks the American government is responsible. She can't believe the hijackers, barely out of flying school, could have steered jetliners into the Twin Towers with such deadly accuracy. Rodney a health worker who studied biochemistry suspects the collapse of the towers was not caused by the planes that went in to them and he wants to get to the bottom of the science. Student Emily, an active member of the 9/11 Truth Movement, thinks the US government was forewarned of the attacks and yet ignored the intelligence allowing it to happen. Shazin, a qualified surveyor, wants to find out how the passengers on United 93 could have made phone calls to loved ones from a plane. And Charlie, an ex-banker thinks 9/11 was an excuse for the US Government to go to war with Iraq. Andrew Maxwell thinks all five of them are wrong and wants to change their minds by confronting them with the facts. So as the bus criss-crosses the east coast of America he tries to convert them to his point of view. He wants to prove to them that 9/11 was no conspiracy and that sometimes the truth, whilst not easy to accept, is staring you right in the face. In order to do so, he takes them to meet experts, the chief air traffic controller on the day, demolition specialists, voice morphing engineers and he gets them to conduct scientific experiments and even fly an aeroplane.
Finally they meet a mother who tragically lost her son, to listen to her account of what it was like to live through this monumental tragedy. Andrew believes it is easy to judge world events from the safe distance of a computer screen in your bedroom but not easy when you are brought face to face with the real human stories behind them Andrew Maxwell fights an exhausting battle for the truth and in his mission to convert his fellow travellers there are rows, falling-outs and tears. But there are also moments of tenderness, empathy and warmth.

Chris Mohr's rebutts Richard Gage
"Richard Gage and I debated this subject for over four hours on March 6, 2011. AE911Truth videotaped it for general distribution but decided against releasing it, so the information I have compiled for the debate is available in this format only. I lay out 235 reasons why I believe the science doesn't support controlled demolition. I have well over 200 photos and videos to illustrate my points."

9/11: A TALE OF TWO TOWERS is an extraordinary documentary that recounts the experiences of people working in two offices in the World Trade Center at the time of the terrorist attacks. One group of survivors was employed by May Davis above the impact point on the 87th floor of the North Tower. Another group was employed by Euro Brokers on the 84th floor of the South Tower. Through emotional and compelling stories, the workers, family members, and staff at the World Trade Center provide a minute-by-minute account of the situation inside the towers. Many of these accounts of human survival are told for the first time.

Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network The Colin McEnroe Show
Host: Colin McEnroe. Guests: Cheryl Curtiss, JoAnne Bauer, Manny Badillo, Tony Szamboti.
From Colin McEnroe:
"Let me be clear: I believe 9/11 was the work of al-Qaeda. I believe they hijacked planes and flew them into buildings. Let me also be clear: I believe there was a concentrated, organized effort at the highest levels of American power to mislead the American public about the fundamental nature of 9/11 and that said effort was largely successful. I'm referring to the notion that Saddam Hussein was partly or largely responsible for the attack, a belief that was embraced by more than 50 percent of Americans in the years following the 9/11attacks. I also believe the CIA, probably abetted by the White House, stonewalled the commission on at least one major aspect of its investigation. The reason I believe this is because the commission chairs, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, said so. Today, you'll meet people whose 9/11 doubts are greater and graver."

On March 6th, at the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado, Colorado 9/11 Visibility hosted a debate between Richard Gage and Chris Mohr.
The question: What brought down the three World Trade Center skyscrapers?
Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He has been an architect for over 23 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. His quest for the truth about 9/11 began in 2006, and he subsequently founded Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
Chris Mohr, investigative journalist and advocate of the “natural collapse” theory, is a sincere seeker of the truth who has extensively researched the collapses of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings, consulted with independent physicists and engineers, and passionately argues that the buildings collapsed due to the plane impacts and fires.
During this debate between Chris Mohr and Richard Gage, the discussion explored not only the collapse of the twin towers, but also that of 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, which collapsed completely at 5:21 pm on 9/11/01. For those of you not familiar with the collapse of WTC7, this is a riveting, don’t-miss controversy. We look forward to a dynamic, respectful, and thoroughly informative exploration of these topics.

"Jesse Ventura's second season finale of "Conspiracy Theory" ended with an episode concerning what happened at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Among the many fraudulent claims made in the television program, Ventura included a segment dealing with the ridiculous claim that fake phone calls were made from aboard the hijacked planes that morning, further purposing the idea that the calls were actually created by voice morphing technology. Jesse Ventura called upon forensic audio expert Kent Gibson for a demonstration of voice morphing technology during the show. I had a conversation with Kent concerning his appearance on Ventura's show. Mr. Gibson had some very interesting things to say about the fake calls claim, Jesse Ventura and his Conspiracy Theory show. The ludicrous claim of faked phone calls on 9/11 is also being pushed by others including prominent 9/11 researcher David Ray Griffin." Jeff Hill www.pumpitout.com

Anthony DePalma, author of City of Dust: Illness, Arrogance and 9/11:
"Amy Goodman, the long-time host of Democracy Now, invited me on her show to discuss the 21 MC 100 litigation settlement. The segment ran for about 12 minutes and we were able to touch on many important issues that I’ve raised in “City of Dust.” She wanted to know more about the roles that Christie Whitman and Rudy Giuliani played in the early stages of the disaster, and she criticized the early coverage of the ground zero hazards by The New York Times. That was before I was covering the environmental beat, and she had a point. If The Times and other media outlets had forced Whitman to be more specific about her statement that the “air was safe to breathe,” asking her where exactly it was safe, for whom it was safe and when, if they had forced her to be as specific about the ground zero hazards as the EPA usually is about the air quality warnings it puts out on ozone alert days, if they had asked her about the immediate dangers of the high silica content of the dust, which made breathing it like taking in airborne Drano, the cleanup would have unfolded in a far different way."
