The Third Tower

9/11 Conspiracy Files: The Third Tower delves into one of mysteries surrounding Sept. 11th, a third tower at the World Trade Centre, which along with the Twin Towers, collapsed on that fateful day. But this skyscraper was never hit by a plane. This 47-story tower fell seven hours after the others and has become the subject of heated speculation and conspiracy theories largely fuelled by the internet. 9/11 was the first global event in the age of the worldwide web and it’s being used as a platform for a wide range of conspiracy theories — more than 50 at the last count — that allege that the U.S. government was somehow involved in the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.

    what a load of ####.

    I might as well fall in love and marry with the Eiffel tower and deny that there is something weird going on.

    No you’re crazy there’s nothing wrong. Read our history books and don’t surf the evil Internet.

      Right because history books are so accurate.

      History is written by the winners. The same corrupt dogs exploiting our world today.

    Fucking ridiculous, only shows their fear and despair towards the emerging truth.

    I sympathize with the Truthers … where are the answers to the serious questions that have been raised over the years?  Answers need to be given by disinterested individuals…not those whose careers depend on what comes out of their mouths.  I’d like to see a Truther look at all the evidence and turn around to support the “official version” of what happened, but I won’t hold my breath.  I don’t think we will ever know.  Next?

    Excellent documentary. From 9/11 until about early 2007, I was a “truther”. But from that point on, my opinions slowly changed. I realised it was easy to find anomalies spread throughout the official story – not because there was a conspiracy – but simply because the government had had to piece the story together as well – as we all did. I slowly became aware that there was no overarching, comprehensive theory regarding a conspiracy to be found. Just various, disconnected anomalies that took some time to find explanations for. And those explanations have materialised over time. I remember how ridiculous the conspiracies were at the beginning – like all the media companies had simultaneously edited footage to fake the video of the aeroplane collisions etc. And slowly but surely, the conspiracy theorists were forced to retreat to new ideas – one after the other.

    These days, they are almost all entirely refuted. Mostly due to the tireless work of unbiased truth seekers (certainly not “truthers” – whose ONLY goal is to find a better way to level accusations of conspiracy – which is not a serious search for unbiased truth). I do salute many of the “truthers” – as they have put forth a series of anomalies that have created an environment for the evolution of the truth through detailed investigation. 

    But in the greatest majority of cases, I have found the remaining truthers to be extremely hostile people. The reason for this is because they are the kind of people whose ego does not allow them to be wrong. Regardless of facts and the more reasonable probabilities presented, they will doggedly cling to their belief (hope) that 9/11 was an inside job. This is due to psychology. Like all people, they feel like they are not entirely in control of their lives. In the false paradigm of modern society, they have been led to believe that this somehow reflects upon who they are – a failure (this is of course untrue). So to compensate for this, they are forced to believe that the reason they are not entirely in control of their lives, is because the “government” (or “they”) are actively suppressing them in evil ways. They hope it is a conspiracy, because then they can validate themselves.

    When the fact is this – you are not entirely in control of your lives for two reasons: 1) You are not exerting enough effort to take control of your life, and 2) Control of your life is impossible, anyway.

    I know this – because I had to move through it myself. I am proud to be able to change my opinion on fundamental truths, using my intellect and reason. I am proud to have achieved this, because to do so, I had to fight the psychology of my worst enemy – myself.

      i cannot agree with this post – the so called “anomolies” are simply too many and too suspicious – i believe our government at that time (many in it were at the very least, complicitious- i dislike the “truther” movement because it seems hell-bent on simply arguing with each other rather than finding out the truth.

    • skeptic1

      First of all there is no such thing as a “truther”. Just because people ask question about things that defy logic don’t make them a “truther”. If you are satisfied with the official version of what happened that day, good for you but it does not give you license to cast aspersions on the rest of us that still think the official story is 99% monkey droppings.

        Not my fault you are a fantasist. And I do have license. False is false.

  • jussumguy

    personally the truth movements focus on the way the buildings collapsed has been over exaggerated and is very easy to debunk, because nothing that happened after the planes, yes planes, struck the buildings, was part of the conspiracy. its the events that led to those planes hitting the buildings that needed to be examined, and they have been. the more compelling evidences for the reasons behind the attacks were never caught on shaky camera footage with screams and booms in the background. in fact, the people behind the attacks are probably tickled pretty that most truthers focus only on the actual calamity. any time you have that amount of energy released in that short an amount of time, unexpected, anomalous things are bound to happen.

    so many 9/11 conspiraqcies here and at http://www.lovedocumentaries.com  surley after 10 years if any proof existed we would have found it ??

    so what do you think ?

    • Vidasan

      see this. i put images from other docs.

      Lol pretty sure the tower dust from the day got tested and showed up with nanothermite which shouldn’t have been there but would have been in there unless there were demolition explosives in play. Also you completely ignore what physicists and architects have to say about the fall of the towers.

    Silverstein didn’t own the building, he was leasing it.  Why do they call him the owner?  He says he was called by the Fire Department.  The head of the FD says no….And they wonder why people have trouble believing the official story.
    Yeah, I’m only about 20 minutes into it…The makers seem to be trying to be fair and show both sides, but they raise questions, state the official story, and act like that’s that.  I’ll keep watching….

    The US Government, according to the US Government, is too incompetent to keep a secret.  That’s a hell of a defense!  So I guess Oswald DID have magic bullets.  I’m honestly trying to believe the official story, but official statements are making this difficult….

    Not mentioned:
    Evidence was destroyed as quickly as possible, the 9/11 comission — with Michael Shermer no less! — was only allowed access to official information, and ordered not to look into anything else.  Silverstein made Seven Billion Dollars on a one and a half Million investment; Bush used Americans’ emotions to lead us into a pointless, illegal war; and Americans have lost many of our freedoms.

    If there is no conspiracy, the Government seems to have gone out of its way to make it look like one.

    Wow, I am admittedly a conspiracy-leaning person but that moment when they’re reporting the collapse of WTC-7 when its standing in the background…I don’t accept the “faulty reporting” explanation.  WAY too coincidental.  I believe Cheney allowed this to happen but didn’t expect the towers to collapse.  WTC-7 might be a huge smoking gun.  Hell, I don’t know.  I just don’t trust anything anymore.

    And this has been bugging me since I last posted:  I’m not dishonoring anyone with my beliefs.  Everyone who died on that day was murdered.  I’m not saying that those who died faked it, I’m saying that the official story has a lot of holes that should have – but were not – covered by the 9/11 Commission.  I mean no disrespect to anyone who lost their lives or loved ones.  I just don’t think I’m getting the truth.

  • des ireland

    i wonder if anyone has ever thought about why building 7 was not targeted by an airplane also. i have my own idea of why this was it is my belief that all the aircraft involved with the 9/11 incident were being remotely flown 3 of those supposed planes reached their targets but the 4th plane i believe was meant to hit building 7 somehow the electronic device being used to fly it malfunctioned so the plane was brought down using an air to air missile fired from a usaf jet therefore the plan that this plane would hit building 7 had to be rearranged to enable preset bombs in building 7 to be detonated following a number of small fires in this building which a fire dept like new yorks im sure would have been more than able to bring under control especially after 7 hours im sure that with all the resources available to the fire dept on that day they could have saved this building if so instructed to im sorry but every incident on 9/11 was clouded in controversy from 4 hijacked planes flying around america unchallenged for 2 hours to 3 high rise towers falling at freefall speed to flight 93 supposedly crashing in shanksville without trace of wreckage or bodies to plane 146 feet wide crashing into pentagon leaving a hole about 5 metres wide thats 16 feet unbelievable
    there needs to be a new independent impartial international investigation into the events of 9/11

    Who benefits, an ancient Roman maxim of investigation, or follow the money, when viewed about the 911 debate, shows it is clearly not the truther’s who gain anything. It is the government who gained totalitarian legislation eliminating Constitutional protections, and a pretext to gain control over oil resources in Iraq and access to the Kazakastan oil. The wars were impossible without the 911 attack. Freedom got nothing to do with this, ask the 1 million dead Iraq’s about this freedom. If you think this is bad, wait until the dollar falls.

  • TheSniper

    WAKE up people, totally orchestrated by the government, all 3 buildings went down with controlled demolition, all evidence removed before investigators moved in, pentagon also blown up, No evidence remained that a plane hit it, NIST report so full of holes Swiss cheese makers would be proud. 3000 people sacrificed to gain public backing of an unjust war and excuse to establish headquarters in the oil rich co-ordinates of the world. Hard to believe this is the case I know when your instinct is to trust those who you rely on to protect you, but these are facts. It has happened in history before but not so disgustingly blatant in your face on the world stage, due to media control. Terrorism??? bullshit…. US leaders etc are the real terrorists… 

  • Pitzrule

    on this note watch when the tower 7 fell …the bottom floors was falling first or the upper floors would not pass the top of the other buildings as it went down …at 48 and so on ……i agree with him… America is no longer with the people …and America cant lie to the people ?????check with LAW enforcement …..they can lie to get you to confess

  • OMG! THE GOVERNENT DID IT!

    Its deeply troubling to see the vast majority of Americans believing in this “Conspiracy theory” bull shit, It makes me sad to think the population of such a country could be so naive, just like religion, some one rants and raves about nonsense loud enough and everyone joins in ….yeah definatley casualties of the internet paranoia phenomenon

  • disgusting

    what a terrible documentary, it starts off like a typical conspiracy doco laying out all the unexplained ‘odd’ occurrences that raise questions then it spends the rest of the time trying to offer half ass explanations seems like they’re trying to pull 911 conspiracy believers over the fence with propaganda. disgusting

  • Mike

    Thermite? Really? You can’t say it was explosives, then switch in thermite when that is shown to be implausible. Yes thermite could melt steel, but it doesn’t create the “explosion” sounds that are claimed…

  • David

    That witness is key. The staircase and elevator shafts are the strongest parts of a building and you need to blow them first before the building can collapse. He explained that the stairs suddenly collapsed so that speaks a lot for a controlled demo.
