Debunking the Myths of 9/11

by ALEXANDER COCKBURN and JEFFREY ST. CLAIR

In this file we make available our series of articles, exclusive to our newsletter or this website, undertaken in the fall of 2006, criticizing the theories of the 9/11 conspiracists, who propose that, in the words of their slogan, “9/11 was an inside job”.

ALEXANDER COCKBURN here assembles his two prime commentaries in a final, expanded essay, “The 9/11 Conspiracists and the Decline of the Left.

Manuel Garcia Jr, physicist and engineer, presents his three separate reports, undertaken for CounterPunch.

Part One is his report on the Physics of 9/11.

Part Two (published here for the first time) is his report on the Thermodynamics of 9/11.

Part Three, “Dark Fire“, is his report on the collapse of the World Trade Center’s Building 7.

JoAnn Wypijewski wrote her essay “Conversations at Ground Zero” after a day spent with people at the site on 9/11/2006.

Happy Reading!
