Top German Engineering Professor: Planned Explosives Downed 9/11's Twin Towers
9/11 won’t go away. If the phrase ‘conspiracy theorist’ was entered into the dictionaries after the JFK assassination, the U.S. government revived the accusation to shut heretics’ mouths after the Twin Towers collapsed. But one German professor in structural engineering, Maximilian Ruppert, knows for a fact that explosives, not planes, brought down the Twin Towers.
From the report by ic911:
I haven’t actually spoken about it since that event, September 11, 2001 — at least not publicly. This is the first time today, and I didn’t actually plan on doing it.
And then in September of 2000, one year before 9/11 — actually, pretty much to the day — I defended my thesis on this topic and was, I have to say in all modesty, one of the few people who ended up creating a standard to calculate such things.
And now, to answer your actual question: Exactly one year later, I was still employed at the chair of Baustatik und Numerische Methoden [“structural analysis and numerical methods”]. We organized a little party because a dear colleague of mine acquired his PhD title, having finished his thesis one year after me. It was on this day, September 11th, that we had a really great party, as we should have.
I mean, you spend all this time researching, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and your topic is always in your head, for years, and you are fully invested. And so, we celebrated with my dear colleague. Then the celebration was suddenly over, and big monitors were rolled in. I remember it as if it were yesterday, even if it was so long ago. The party was over and then . . . Military personnel were also present. Anyone of importance was there.
Americans were not present. Normally they are always there when there is a party, and this was actually the reason why a higher-ranking officer said: “Look what happened there! The Americans are bringing down these towers and didn’t even bother to tell us! The audacity! Well, when there is a demolition on our side” — I’m now quoting him — “then they always come over to drink and guzzle, and now we can’t join them.”
This was the spontaneous reaction within the first seconds, after seeing the images. But then silence overcame us, because we realized that people had been harmed, and this took our breath away in the truest sense of the word.
And on that day, the German community — Berlin, Freiburg im Breisgau, Munich Bundeswehr University — they were all present. And we basically knew instantly, for buildings to come down that way, it can only be a planned procedure.
We also felt — wow, respect! This is a really clean job! This is quite a feat! This is not easy! You have to think about it this like — well, I won’t hold a structural engineering class right now, don’t worry — but to come up with the structural calculations to erect such a building — especially one of these dimensions — requires maybe one-hundredth of the effort and also of the technical expertise compared to what it takes to bring down such a building in this particular manner. You can always knock it down, but to do it without any great collateral damage, I mean . . .
Was there, after the observation of this collapse . . . was there any doubt in this small circle? Could people have said: “Well, maybe it really is some other event, because . . . the planes — we all saw them.”
No, no doubts. Not one. That didn’t happen. We instantly knew. This had to have been facilitated through a planned explosion however this was accomplished. But we instantly knew: They were brought down in a controlled manner. And we had only seen the two towers. The third tower [WTC 7], this I only understood many years later.
Yes, just like the title says, this is the beginning of the end of evidence-based science — i.e., natural science or engineering. That’s what I tell myself. It’s all based on empirical science. So I need numbers, data, facts, which I collect diligently.
If I rely on it and then completely replace it with the stories of others, then for me science is at the end. And on that day, on the 11th of September 2001, this story no longer agreed with my observation, the observation of all my colleagues — not in the slightest.
