|AE911Truth Statement on Alleged Recent Death of Osama bin Laden|

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org), a tax-exempt nonprofit educational charity, has been asked to comment on the alleged recent death of Osama bin Laden. Reports of bin Laden's death, even if true, explain NONE of the overwhelming evidence for the explosive controlled demolition of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11. For several years now we have been citing this evidence in support of a genuine, subpoena-powered, independent investigation. We have been joined in that call by almost 1500 licensed and/or degreed architects and engineers and almost 12,000 others, including chemists, physicists, firefighters, attorneys, and other professionals. When the flag-waving pep rallies have all died down, this evidence will still be here, demanding a serious accounting from our elected officials and the agencies that serve them. Osama bin Laden’s death does not begin to address these disturbing facts:
WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:
In the the aftermath of WTC7's destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered:
WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed.
The Twin Towers' destruction exhibited all of the characteristics of conventional destruction by explosives, and some unconventional characteristics:
And exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
Conclusion and directions for further research
The death of Bin Laden brings to a close one significant chapter in our country’s history. But one man alone, no matter how large a symbolic figure he may have become, does not in any way relieve us from our government’s responsibility and duty to investigate properly the destruction of these three buildings, and our responsibility to ensure that they do so… lest history repeat itself.
Just as conviction of a murderer without a body is disparaged, conviction and murder of the accused without evidence, or a body, should be condemned. In this case, what evidence does exist is not supportive of the military transcripts currently being offered as news. The existing evidence related to Osama bin Laden includes a number of facts that have gone unexplained or been forgotten. These include mainstream news reports that said:
• That Osama bin Laden said he wasn’t behind attacks. Here is an article from CNN by that title.
• US Secretary of State Colin Powell promised to generate a white paper that would “put before the world, the American people, a persuasive case that … it is al-Qaida, led by Osama bin Laden, who has been responsible.” That evidence was never produced.
Any explanation given for the worst terrorist attack on American soil should be examined closely. Claims made without evidence should be discarded. We at AE911truth will continue that approach with respect to the WTC destruction and we hope that everyone else will follow the same approach with respect to the worst terrorist attack in American history.
