DC 9/11 Conference - CIT Statement Posted Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by Craig Ranke
As some of you may know, a 9/11 conference is planned for this September in Washington D.C.
It's called, "9/11: Advancing The Truth." I first heard about this conference earlier this year
from a contact in the local D.C. 9/11 truth group. He was immediately skeptical, and after hearing his explanation, so was I.
Last month, Pacifica Radio hosted a series of debates
about 9/11, which were then broadcast nationwide on their radio
network and affiliates as part of their 9/11 tenth anniversary
special. In the debate about "the lingering questions
surrounding the attack" at the Pentagon, I had a chance to go
head to head with Anthony Summers, co-author of the book The
Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden. He
argued in favor of the official narrative, while I (of course)
argued against it.
On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, American researchers will
appear live at The Royal cinema in Toronto to present exclusive
interviews with eyewitnesses to the act of mass murder which
took place at the Pentagon that day. Their documentary film,
which has been translated into several languages and garnered
more than 500,000 views online, makes the case that these
detailed audio and video-recorded witness accounts prove “beyond
a reasonable doubt that the violent event at the Pentagon was
the result of a carefully planned and skillfully executed
military deception,” not a surprise attack by kamikaze hijacker
pilots as alleged. The film, National Security Alert, will be
incorporated into a multimedia presentation along with other
The event is being sponsored and hosted by Toronto-based author
and TV producer Barrie Zwicker. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the
event begins at 8:00. Will Call tickets can be purchased in
advance for $10 at CitizenInvestigationTeam.com. At the door,
tickets will be $15 (regular), $12 for students and seniors; or
pay what you can.
CIT publishes response to David
Chandler & Jonathan Cole's Joint Statement about the 9/11
Pentagon Attack Posted
Thursday, Feb 3, 2011, 6:53pm We've been put in the
difficult position of having to defend ourselves against people
whose work regarding the destruction of the World Trade Center
we respect and appreciate. Although we had never spoken to David
Chandler or Jonathan Cole prior to the publication of their
"joint statement" on the Pentagon attack, we had always
considered them natural allies, had never badmouthed them or had
any inclination to do so, and had even praised their work.
Unfortunately they did not have the courtesy or sense to get in
touch with us to see if we had any responses to their apparent
serious issues with our work before publicly denouncing it. The
result, as we have now documented in great detail, was a
simplistic, horribly sloppy, and defamatory essay which reveals
that, at best, they had barely spent any time at all on our
website, let alone bothered to view our extensive catalog of
video presentations to familiarize themselves with the full
scope -- or even many of the basics -- of the evidence we
present, or us personally, before rushing to judgment and
aggressively attacking us. [Read
In the Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQ) section of this website (CitizenInvestigationTeam.com),
FAQ #2 is:
"Why does it matter which side of the gas station the plane flew
on? Couldn’t the plane have flown on the north side of the gas
station and still hit the light poles and building?"
The short answer to the second question is "no", and that FAQ
page (viewable in full here) is an important
resource explaining why that is the case.
A new section has now been added to this page. It
Mr. Beattie is a licensed Professional Engineer in his home state of
Michigan. He also holds a B.S. in Physics. After graduation he spent several
years in the U.S. Navy, where he served as Operations Officer on the U.S.S.
Talbot County (LST-1153). He subsequently spent 33 years serving in various
engineering and management positions for the ANR Pipeline Company before
retiring in 1996.
Mr. Aimer is a retired professional pilot with 45 years airline
experience. As a captain for United Airlines he flew the routes for both
Flight 175 and Flight 93 many times. He is a
core member of Pilots for 9/11 Truth,
and was recently featured in an episode of Jesse Ventura's television show on
TruTV about the Pentagon attack, where he demonstrated the implausibility of any
pilot, let alone an amateur like Hani Hanjour, to accomplish what Hanjour is
alleged to have accomplished.
This year for the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Craig
Ranke, co-founder of Citizen Investigation Team (CIT), will be screening their
presentation National Security Alert
throughout France and other locations in Europe. [Read
French bloggers interview Craig
Ranke, Kropotkine & Ikky w/ E&FD Posted Monday,
Mar 5, 2010, 4:43pm by Craig Ranke CIT
I participated in a comprehensive interview with French bloggers/911
Truth activists Kropotkine & Ikky of the "Enquêtes et Faits Divers" blog which
means "Inquiries and News Items".
These guys have done an amazing job bringing the evidence we have
uncovered to the people of France by creating a version of National Security
Alert with French subtitles that they uploaded to Dailymotion.com
here. It has received over
35,000 views and over 500 comments.
French author Thierry Meyssan's book "L'Effroyable imposture"
which means "The Horrifying Fraud" (Its English edition is entitled 9/11: The
Big Lie) was released in 2002 and as far as I know was the first publication
released questioning the 9/11 event during all the initial hysteria when to do
so was considered unthinkable for most.
There has been a rather lively debate on this topic in France ever
Meyssan's book received worldwide attention and he was the first
known proponent of the missile theory at the Pentagon.
Kropotkine & Ikky recently published an exclusive interview with
Meyssan on their blog where they asked him about the research of
CIT. The original interview in French is available on their blog
here and Kropotkine has
translated the outtakes where Meyssan discusses CIT and posted
them on our forum in
There has been a renewed interest in France regarding the Pentagon
attack due to the efforts of Kropotkine & Ikky to make sure
people there are aware of what we have accomplished. With so
many people discussing our research Kropotkine had some very
excellent questions to ask us that deserved extremely detailed
and thorough answers.
The same questions are also brought up during debate in the U.S.
so reading this entire interview is highly recommended.

releasing a French version as soon as they finish the
North Side Impact Analysis - New Tech Paper from Pilots For 9/11
Truth Posted Monday,
Feb 1, 2010, 10:09pm by Craig Ranke CIT
Pilots for 9/11 Truth has written a new tech paper, complete with
calculations and animations, that formally and scientifically
demonstrates that a plane on the north side of the gas station
cannot cause the physical damage photographed and documented at
the Pentagon, starting with the light poles.
This puts any possible doubts to rest regarding the
non-controversial scientific fact that a flight path directly
over the Navy Annex and north of the former Citgo gas station as
reported by the witnesses presented in National Security Alert
unequivocally and scientifically proves a flyover.
Furthermore, as stated at the beginning of the paper:
"The simple fact is that most if not all of the eyewitnesses did not stop
watching the plane the instant it came even with the north side of the gas
station. In order to assert that the plane may have transitioned from the
north side of the station to a trajectory that would allow it to cause the
observed physical damage -- beginning with the first down light pole -- one
would have to ignore everything drawn and reported beyond that point by the
eyewitnesses. Ignoring witness statements is intellectually dishonest and
not an objective approach to such an analysis. This specifically includes,
but is not limited to, their placement of the plane over or very near the
parking lot outside of the Arlington National Cemetery maintenance
buildings, of which a number of witnesses are explicit. If the hypothetical
maneuver in question were possible -- which as this paper shows, it is not
-- it would still be a moot point as physical damage analysis and a North
Approach Impact hypothesis is not consistent with witness statements,
reports or drawings."
