  9-11 Loose Change Second Edition Viewer Guide Left click: open entry/Right click: save entry

  (Link updated 5/18/09, now a Word doc instead of the former HTML page. - Myriad)
"I put this document together for several reasons:

1. To promote understanding of the facts about the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and to discourage relying on rumor and conjecture when searching for the "truth."

2. Because I believe that "Loose Change" is an influential introduction for many people to 9/11 conspiracy issues.

3. To encourage respect for the victims, living and dead, of the 9/11 attacks.

My comments and analysis are mostly restricted to the issues raised by the video. At the end of this document are links to websites with in-depth analyses of 9/11 conspiracy theories, as well as links to the "official" version of events and to other analyses by experts and laymen."

911 Myths
  "Whatever you believe about 9/11, the spreading of false claims helps no-one, and we’d like to play a small part in revealing some of them. We’re not about debunking entire conspiracies, then, but will use this site to zoom in on what we think are the more dubious stories, revealing the misquotes, the distortions, the inaccuracies that are so common online."

  A five-year-old story from our archive has been the subject of some recent editorial discussion here. The story, written in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, was about confusion at the time surrounding the names and identities of some of the hijackers. This confusion was widely reported and was also acknowledged by the FBI.

Feathered Bastard
  Our buddy Stephen Lemons, who wrote a terrific profile of Screw Loose Change gathered a ton more information on the 9-11 crackpots than could fit in his cover story, and is releasing on his Phoenix New Times blog, the Feathered Bastard. Not all of his posts are 9-11 related, and there is some strong language, but he's a fine writer with a keen and piercing wit.

  Good Science and 9-11 Demolition Theories
This paper is written to demonstrate that those who believe that the World Trade Centre was destroyed by controlled demolition, rather than the impact of the planes, are mistaken. While I sympathise with the overall aims of protesting against US and UK foreign policy, I don't believe that US officials took part in a conspiracy to murder thousands of their fellow-citizens. I believe that the truth is in fact more alarming: US and UK foreign policy is based on ignorance, not malice. But I don't believe in fighting ignorance with ignorance. However well-intentioned, the demolition theories will not achieve their goals because they are based on an ignorance of good science.

  Questions & Answers has received numerous inquiries from around the world requesting information and commentary relating to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, and specifically the felling of the World Trade Center towers. We have been contacted by media outlets, structural engineers, schoolteachers, conspiracy theorists and many others who are searching for answers and some “perspective” regarding these significant events that have evoked deep emotions and undoubtedly changed our world forever.
The editors of have created this page to answer a few of the most frequently asked questions that fall within our area of knowledge and expertise. But first we’d like to be clear in stating that any conversation relating to “implosions” and what causes structures to fail is undertaken with reverence and respect to those who perished as a result of this event. As many of our frequent web visitors are aware,’s offices are located close to New York City, and several of our employees were personally touched by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of those lost and injured, and our intent here is to help foster a constructive base of knowledge and understanding through education, while dispelling false rumors related to the attack.

Internet Detectives - Loose Change
  "Loose Change is a video that examines the attacks of September 11, written and narrated by Dylan Avery. Originally fiction, Avery decided to present it as a documentary after further research. The video received attention on the internet, and a second edition was produced which contained additional information but omitted some information from the first video. A recut of the second edition was later produced, with minor changes and corrections. This page will address issues presented in all of the videos, which are freely available online."

  JOM: Why Did the World Trade Center Collapse? Science, Engineering, and Speculation
  Thomas Eager and Christopher Musso

"The collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers on September 11, 2001, was as sudden as it was dramatic; the complete destruction of such massive buildings shocked nearly everyone. Immediately afterward and even today, there is widespread speculation that the buildings were structurally deficient, that the steel columns melted, or that the fire suppression equipment failed to operate. In order to separate the fact from the fiction, we have attempted to quantify various details of the collapse."
