Mechanical engineer and distinguished 9/11 researcher Tony Szamboti joins host Andy Steele to share his analysis of the Twin Towers’ destruction and to reflect on his and others’ efforts to expose the scientific fraud perpetrated by NIST and engineering professor Zdenek Bazant.
On this follow-up special episode of 9/11 Free Fall, AE911Truth CEO Roland Angle and Director of Strategy Ted Walter join host Andy Steele to dissect the multiple conflicting theories of how fire caused the total destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11, 2001.
In their discussion, they juxtapose the engineering community’s astonishment at the collapse of Building 7 and its inability to arrive at a single theory 20 years after 9/11 against the absolute certainty among officials at the scene that Building 7 would come down later in day.
How did the total, sudden, symmetrical, free-fall collapse of Building 7 go from being eminently predictable to eminently inexplicable? Angle, Walter, and Steele trace the troubling story of an engineering establishment that has refused for two decades to consider the most likely cause of Building 7’s destruction: controlled demolition.
On this special episode of 9/11 Free Fall, AE911Truth CEO Roland Angle and Director of Strategy Ted Walter join host Andy Steele to critique a recent presentation on the World Trade Center building failures by Najib Abboud, a managing principal at the engineering consulting firm Thornton Tomasetti.
Before his former company, Weidlinger Associates, merged with Thornton Tomasetti in 2015, Abboud led Weidlinger’s studies into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 as part of the litigation efforts of developer Larry Silverstein.
In this presentation, Abboud puts forth Weidlinger’s theory that the Twin Towers collapsed due to heat-induced failure of the core columns. This theory differs significantly from NIST’s theory that the perimeter columns failed first, as a result of being pulled inward by heat-induced sagging of the floor trusses.
Abboud asserts that all of the studies supporting fire-induced collapse have converged around certain findings. But, in reality, they involve very different collapse initiation mechanisms, and none of them actually analyze how the destruction propagated following collapse initiation.
Angle and Walter methodically refute Abboud’s claims and explain how the NIST and Weidlinger theories are as much at odds with the evidence as they are with each other. In Part 2, Angle and Walter will examine the multiple conflicting fire-based theories for Building 7’s destruction, which are even more numerous and diverse than those for the Twin Towers.

This week on 9/11 Free Fall, structural engineer Larry Cooper joins Andy Steele to talk about his days as an activist for Palestinian human rights, when he served as president of the National Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East, and about his experience since becoming active with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, where he recently joined the board of directors. After sharing his journey from human rights activism to 9/11 Truth, Larry converses with Andy about the NIST investigation, the University of Alaska Fairbanks study, and AE911Truth’s ongoing outreach to the engineering profession.
Ray McGinnis, author of the recent Unanswered Questions: What the September Eleventh Families Asked and the 9/11 Commission Ignored, sits down with Andy Steele to talk about the story, documented in his book, of the 9/11 families who fought for the formation of the 9/11 Commission — only to have most of their questions go unanswered and the truth about that day covered up. McGinnis offers his meticulously researched book as a way into the issue for readers who may be hesitant to question the official 9/11 narrative.
This week on 9/11 Free Fall, British journalist and activist Ian Henshall joins Andy Steele to talk about his work on behalf of the 9/11 Truth Movement in the UK, which he launched shortly after 9/11, and about his support for the efforts of fellow Brit Matt Campbell to open a new inquest into the murder of Matt’s brother Geoff on 9/11. This episode is about one hour long. We invite you to watch or listen. Please note that there was a technical issue with Andy’s earphones that prevented him from hearing Ian at times, occasionally causing him to talk over Ian. This issue will be resolved before the next episode.
This week on 9/11 Free Fall, New York architect Bill Brinnier, who lost his best friend Frank De Martini on 9/11, sits down with Andy Steele to talk about his new role on AE911Truth’s board of directors and his recent appearances in Dylan Avery’s The Unspeakable and Spike Lee’s NYC Epicenters. Although Bill was to appear in the 30-minute section of NYC Epicenters that was ultimately censored, he was also featured earlier in the series — where his comment that the North Tower was “demolished” still aired. Andy plays clips from both films, and Bill reflects on an eventful year for his own pursuit of truth on behalf of Frank.
On this special, 90-minute year-end episode of 9/11 Free Fall, AE911Truth Director of Strategy Ted Walter joins host Andy Steele to recap the organization’s groundbreaking initiatives in 2021 and discuss where the organization is headed in 2022.
Ted goes into detail on efforts like the Geoff Campbell inquest, the request for correction to NIST’s final report on Building 7, and the new documentary The Unspeakable. He also lays out a vision for the success of AE911Truth’s mission more than 20 years after 9/11.
Peter Janney, author of “Mary’s Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace,” recently signed the petition of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. In this interview with host Andy Steele, Dr. Janney, a psychologist, shares why he rejects the official 9/11 narrative and discusses how the failure to acknowledge dark truths in our nation’s past plagues society today.
In this hour-long episode, host Andy Steele is joined by AE911Truth board members Kamal Obeid and Kent Rattan, who take apart a four-minute report, broadcast by NBCLX around the 20th anniversary of 9/11, that is an attempt to push NIST’s official story of what destroyed the World Trade Center towers on to a young audience.
