At the time this article was being developed, many people expressed disbelief that energy weapons existed outside of science fiction until they were reminded of the Star Wars Program, also known as the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI)*. The name of this article was chosen as a reminder that energy weapons do exist and have been developed over 100 years. Most of this technology is classified information. It can also be assumed that such technology exists in multiple countries. The purpose of this article was to begin to identify the evidence of what happened on 9/11/01 that must be accounted for. In doing so, the evidence ruled out a Kinetic Energy Device (bombs, missiles, etc.) as the method of destruction as well as a gravity-driven "collapse."

*SDI was created by U.S. President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983.1 It is thought that SDI may have been first dubbed "Star Wars" by opponent Dr. Carol Rosin, a consultant and former spokeswoman for Wernher von Braun. However, Missile Defense Agency (MDA) historians attribute the term to a Washington Post article published March 24, 1983, the day after the Star Wars speech, which quoted Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy describing the proposal as "reckless Star Wars schemes."2 Before it was named the "Star Wars Program (SDI) in 1983, it was the Advanced Space Programs Development.3

 VII. Holes Top

Buildings 5 and 6 had mysterious holes in them. Because of the verticality of these holes, their cause could not have been conventional explosives. WTC6, an eight-story building, lost about half of its volume and there was remarkably little debris left at the bottom of building. What happened? No one has attempted to explain these mysterious holes.

Figure 54. Every building that was destroyed had a prefix of WTC. There was surprisingly little collateral damage to nearby buildings that were not targeted. The WTC buildings that were not totally destroyed had multiple circular holes visible at Ground Zero -- especially in buildings WTC5 and WTC6. (high-resolution)

Figure 55(a) looks west/northwest. Notice the substantial steel debris from the lower floors of WTC1 lying in the West Side Highway. This debris fell short of damaging the WFC2 façade, which only suffered broken windows (see Figure 29). The diagonal path of the steel "wheatchex" in the street look as if they leaned back, jumped out of the bathtub, tried to do a pirouette, and plopped down in the middle of the West Side Highway, almost ready for loading onto trucks. The coherence of this wall from WTC 1 laid out in West street in single thickness suggests that thermite was not used on this wall. Why? Because thermite would have cut steel, sent it tumbling down, creating a scattered trash pile of steel, and likely sending steel beams into adjacent buildings.

The north side of the outer wall of WTC1 is standing unsupported, leaning toward WTC6. The east side of the remaining WTC1 wall appears to be the highest standing section of unsupported wall that remains. A "pancake collapse" would have crushed (destroyed, buckled) these outer walls, yet they remain standing at attention like a soldier. The floors connected to this outer wall seemed to have slipped away as if they had never existed. How could the floors be torn away from the walls, while the walls stay erect, unbuckled, and unsupported? It appears that that the floors were pulverized and simply disappeared. There is debris at the lobby level near the standing walls but there are no floor "pancakes" stacked up.

Figure 56. This photo highlights the depth of the hole in WTC6. The "smoke" or pulverized dust from debris appears to have diminished in comparison to Figure 55(a). While there is abundance of aluminum cladding on the roofs of buildings 5 and 6, there is little or none in the holes.
(9/??/01) Source

Figure 56 shows the remains of WTC6 just north of where WTC1 was standing. The vertical holes in WTC6 (U.S. Customs Building) have the shape of cylindrical core samples in soil. What could have done this? Explosives (dynamite, RDX, etc.)? Thermite? Mini-nukes? Beam weapon? Whatever it was produced vertically straight holes while doing little apparent horizontal damage to the balance of the interior of WTC6. In addition, the parking garage below WTC6 remained essentially undamaged, as Figure 1 on page 1 and Figure 304 below shows.

Figure 11. Banker's Trust, a 40-story building, had pulverized dust and some WTC aluminum cladding on its roof -- plus some damage mostly confined to its lower floors. This same pattern prevails in other damaged buildings adjacent to the WTC complex. (See Figure 9, below.) This is surprisingly little damage following destruction of 110-story buildings directly across the street. Why is there no serious damage to the adjacent buildings above the 20th floors of those buildings? Such damage is less than 20% of the height of a Twin Tower. What would explain why this? Disintegration and pulverization into talcum-powder-sized dust above the 20th floors would explain this.

Figure 9(a). WTC5 on the left, the U.S. Postal Service building, and the two buildings to the right (north) of the postal building, have only modest dust and a few pieces of aluminum cladding on their roofs. A jet engine piece was found at the corner of Murray and Church Streets as indicated in Figure 9.

Figure 9(b). How could this piece fly through WTC2, over WTC5 and two more buildings, drop into that intersection by clearing the tallest building, land under scaffolding, not gouge the street or any building and not bump into any scaffolding supports? The Flight 175 engine piece apparently came in for a soft landing.

Figure 57(a). Some debris has been cleared, but the pulverized dust is still emerging. If most of the steel from the upper floors of WTC1 and WTC2 was pulverized, then how much steel was really shipped as scrap to China? Does anyone have these figures or the receipts?

To the right of WTC6 is the remaining north wall of WTC1 which leans toward WTC6. Where did the wall go? Where did the top 100 floors of the north wall go? They did not fall on WTC6 or WTC7 because there are no steel wheatchex there. Some of the core of WTC1 remains, but where is the rest of the core? The amount of steel on the ground barely covers the ground.

You can locate the object above in the large photo (top center, near cranes) and use it as a scale. (click to enlarge)

Figure 63 above is an overhead view of WTC6. This photo shows not a single cut-out but a cluster of vertical cut-outs that coalesce together and form a scalloped border. No collapsed floors are visible at the bottom of the hole and the heart of the building is gone. A bomb cannot do this. The debris inside the building is minimal and it all is at ground level, no deeper. The base of the north wall of WTC1 is to the left of WTC6, and you can see the remains of a cluster of core columns in the center of the WTC1 footprint. The debris from WTC1 is almost non-existent, dwarfed by the remains of the 8-story WTC6.

By contrast, look at Figure 59(b) above to see how much taller than WTC1 was than WTC6 before 9/11: 110 vs. 8 floors. WTC6 almost looked like a one-story building prior to 9/11, because it seemed so small in comparison to WTC1.

The vertical cut-outs in WTC6 approximate the shape of circles (viewed from above), each with a diameter of approximately 24-feet, as measured and calculated from the known dimensions of the steel "wheatchex." Where did the core material of the building go? Was it disintegrated and pulverized into a fine dust? If so, then how?

Figure 63z was taken from inside WTC6. The vertical cut-outs seen in Figure 63 do indeed appear to go completely to the ground floor, with relatively little debris remaining. The number of floors within the building can be counted and eight floors are visible (counting floors on the far side, top-down, appears easiest). The evidence suggests that all 8 floors somehow were pulverized or "disappeared." What could be the cause?

Figure 62 shows the roof of WTC5, with considerable aluminum and some steel wheatchex on the left (south) and top (west). What could cause these holes? WTC5 is not adjacent to a Twin Tower, as WTC4 and WTC6 were. Thus WTC5 was less likely to suffer damage from the destruction of a Twin Tower than WTC4 and WTC6 were, as shown by Figure 75 on page 6. A piece of aircraft fuselage was allegedly found on the roof of WTC5. Can you find the fuselage piece in Figure 62? If not, you're not alone. When did a fuselage piece shown in Figure 62(c) arrive on the roof of WTC5?

The fuselage piece in Figure 62(d) made popular by Popular Mechanics is located between the two raised roof sections of WTC5. This location in the large picture is identified by a circle and arrow in the small photo, Figure 62(d). There is only one aircraft item, the rest is aluminum cladding and other building debris.

Figure 61 is a zoomed out view with WTC5 to the right (north) and the remains of the north wing of WTC4 near the bottom. The main part of WTC4 disappeared with virtually no debris left on the ground. Additional views of WTC4 are shown in Figure 78 on page 6. The "new" left-hand (south) side of the remaining wing of WTC4 is remarkably vertical and linear, appearing to have been cut straight down through the building from above. What could have made such a straight cut through WTC4, slicing off a large portion of the building?

Figure 61(c). The north wing of WTC4, as viewed from Church Streed, looking west, appears surgically removed from the main body of WTC4, which has essentially dissappeared. If WTC2 fell on it and squashed the main building, where is the part of WTC2 that did this?

Figure 60 shows the remains of the south tower and WTC4. The entire footprint of WTC2 is visible, but no core columns are visible. The debris stack is hard to assess, but we can see the base of the "trident" columns (or "pitchforks" in the ground) at the lobby level. Seeing these exposed "pitchforks" indicates that there is not much debris remaining from the 110-story building. Little of the main part of WTC4 remains. About 20 floors from the east wall of WTC2 lie in the place where WTC4 used to be. Near the upper-left corner of the photo, the south wall of WTC2 leans over Liberty Street, and the mysterious black hole in the street can be seen through the missing wheatchex. This bizarre hole in Liberty Street appears to be the same phenomenon as the holes in WTC5 and WTC6.

Street, identified by the guide in Figure 302(b). The remaining wall of WTC2 is in the background.
(photo filed 9/18-19/01) Source

In Figure 302 there is some strange "toasted" steel. The worker by the ladder stares down at several pieces of discolored steel beams, and may be saying, "What the h**l is this?" There is a long red beam that rises from the lower-right corner that looks wavy like a serpent. Before the steel disintegrates, does it crinkle, become wavy, or shrivel? Near the tip of the "serpent" described above, there is a vertical piece of material that has a gold-copper appearance. Below the ladder, there are two similar gold pieces that are highly reflective. The WTC2 shows a strange pattern where the lower portion of a steel column is missing, but not its upper portion. Was gravity acting up at that point? In the background, behind the ladder, you can see a section of intact sidewalk with almost no debris on it. This is at the base of the 110-story South Tower, yet the sidewalk was not crushed by falling debris.

Now we're going below ground level so let's review what we've been told:

Rising dust and vapor from zones in the rubble continued for weeks. This phenomenon needed an explanation. Pools of molten metal provided a plausible explanation, but is it a correct explanation?

Hole #2 Top

Figure 300 looks down into the basement of WTC2 in zone 2 in shown in Figure 300(b). This is adjacent to the southeast corner of the bathtub wall which was damaged at the top. There seems to be a wet floor or puddle of water. There is no steam rising. There clearly is no molten metal visible in this section of the basement.

Hole #1 Top

Figure 303. This hole adjacent to WTC2 (zone 2 in Figure 303(c)) is through sidewalk and pavement. This hole contains more debris than the hole discussed in Figure 300 above. It looks as if the debris fell in the hole. Note the scale, shown to the right.
(photo filed 9/21/01) Source

Figure 303 shows a hole outside the wall of WTC2 closest to Liberty street and exhibits a number of anomalous effects. One example is the missing lower portion of that beam on the right end. The three outer columns in the center of the picture have a strange flanged appearance as if they had unfolded, and they look cooked. It looks as if a steel wheatchex dove into the hole. The fact that you can only see the tip of the wheatchex shows how far down the hole goes.

The WTC2 columns are "pitch fork handles" at the lobby level, spaced on 10-foot centers. A six-foot person could lay between the columns with his feet against one column and reach out and almost touch the adjacent column. Large cars and trucks can fit between these columns. Therefore the column unwrapping effect is huge. Similar to figure 302, there are "serpent-like" steel beam remnants hanging over the hole. They look as though they stopped short of complete disintegration. The metal in the lower right corner of the picture, with a camouflage appearance, looks deformed and dissolved as if attacked by acid. There is a large amount of material distributed throughout that looks as if it were run through a paper shredder. In the lower levels, concrete rebar is exposed apparently because the concrete attached to it was pulverized.

Mall Rescue Top

The GZ workers in Figures 311 and 312 are not crawling on their hands and knees through dense debris in ruined subbasements. They are walking upright and not ducking beneath low-hanging ceilings. Does this look like a 1/4-mile tall tower crash-landed or pancake-collapsed into the basement? The lower portion of the steel from the east wall of WTC2, shown in Figure 60, is spread over the ground where the main section of WTC4 once stood. The mall is the first floor below all this steel, yet the mall was not crushed.

Hot Spot? Top

It has been widely reported that molten metal burned at Ground Zero (GZ) for up to 99 days despite continuous water poured on them and numerous rain storms. Supposedly, this is a smoking gun for controlled demolition. But, are these stories true?

Source and here

Figure Thermal (a) shows thermal imaging of WTC on September 16, 2001, and F is the largest hot spot. We understand that the raw data came from NASA and then these images were produced by USGS using the NASA data. How reliable are these data? Assume the data are valid for the sake of argument. Figure Thermal(b), September 23, 2001, shows no large hot spots anywhere, casting doubt on the stories of long-lived molten metal. So, if the imaging data are reliable, then the hot spots disappeared within two weeks, not 99 days. But there are reasons to suspect that the imaging data are false. A spot like F would seem to be the most likely location to find molten metal, yet this spot coincides with hole 2 as shown in Figure 300 above, where we found no evidence of molten metal. Instead it appears to be a damp basement.

There are other reasons to doubt the stories of "pools of molten metal." First, the stories of molten metal come from interested parties like the head of Tully Construction and Controlled Demolition, Inc. Second, there are no photos of molten metal that we believe are reliable. Third, there are no photos of the solidified molten metal after it cooled either in place or being carried out. There's no evidence of molten metal before, during, or after. Fourth, the molten metal may be a cover story to hide the grim truth. Vehicle dust kicked up on a dirt road does not take six months to settle out. Dust from traditional controlled demolition settles out quickly, even after being jack-hammered and pushed around. But the dust at the WTC was so ultra-fine that hosing it down would have been a wise thing to do. It is quite possible that GZ workers were not hosing down molten metal but were hosing down ultra-fine dust and the fumes of molecular dissociation. (See this figure.)
