The Attack on New York City

Scale and Inhumanity of Attack Hide the Most Basic Truths

Footage of the South Tower collision was played repeatedly. The far more deadly collapses were played much less frequently.

Manhattan, one of three scenes of carnage on 9/11/01, was the focal point of the attack in a number of respects. The loss of life in and around the World Trade Center was over ten times as great as at the Pentagon and Flight 93's crash site combined. While network TV repeatedly reported on events in Washington and Pennsylvania, the imagery remained almost exclusively of New York City, supplemented with mug shots of Osama bin Laden and the alleged hijackers. The keynote footage of the fireball of Flight 175's crash into the South Tower was played over and over.

The terror in Manhattan also had a longevity not shared by the other sites. Having received the first and last installments of the attack -- the North Tower impact and its disintegration 102 minutes later (unless one counts the implosion of Building 7, 7 hours later) -- Ground Zero saw rescue and recovery efforts lasting for months while the rubble continued to burn, subjecting the residents of Manhattan and Long Island to an uncontrolled experiment in toxic exposure.

While network TV went into uninterrupted "coverage" that would last a week, the most basic questions went unasked and unanswered. This was true of the entire attack, and particularly in regard to how two plane crashes resulted in the entire World Trade Center complex being pulverized to the point that it looked as if it was ground zero of a nuclear explosion. In this section we examine the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 in light of their alleged cause, the 767 crashes and ensuing fires.

How could such basic flaws in the official story go un-noticed? The answer probably lies in how the attack was psychologically engineered. People were so shocked by the attack that the most basic facts could be hidden in plain sight.
