German TV revelations about 11th September

Watched by 3 to 4 million germans, on 11.Septemeber 2007 in the best evening broadcasting slot, the german second public-owned TV channel, ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen = second german distant-viewing) showed a lame docutainment in true tabloid style.

Myth and Truth
What really happened

a film by Michael Renz and Guy Smith (BBC)

"Jetliners became flying bombs and shook the USA to the core."


Newspaper coverage:

Research for the Film was obstructed

When asked for information US authorities barricaded themselves.


... an enquiry at UNited Airlines results in:

The INSURANCE COMPANY of UNITED AIRLINES is in possession of the wreckage.
The manager in charge at the insurance company is in a meeting at first,
then on a three day business trip, that mutates into a multi-week intercontinal trip.
During this time he cannot be reached, neither by email nor by mobile phone -- the
(female) secretary of the biggest US airline-insurance-company pretends.
After weaks and countless phone calls finally a brief answer:
The wreckage is not in their possession. The FBI in Washington is responsible.

The FBI press officer is astonishingly open-minded. He doesn't want to give interviews
about the topic of 11th September, but will certainly give a permission to film the wreckage.
After all, the investigations have concluded and there is no reason to exclude the public.
But: The FBI is not in possession of the wreckage, it had been returned to United Airlines.

Back to starting point. Yes, we have the wreckage, United Airlines confirms. But there will
be no permission to film it. Without giving reasons why.


All requests to state institutions and a multitude of private companies end in this way.
Seemingly nobody wants to have anything to do with the 11th of Septemeber.
Even the filming of a Boing Flight Simulator is refused. The arm of the USA reaches over
the big pond (the atlantic ocean). European companies close their gates to our enquiries,
partly after consulting the USA.

Our partner BBC did not fare better, even through it is the closest brother-in-arms of the USA.

On the topic of fire-protection-measures. Owner of the towers, Port Authority NY, Port Authority New Jersey ... no information.


When talking to official "off the record" many tell of a muzzle from the very top.
Evidently a wide-spread fear rules... to burn one's mouth with that topic.

Interview snippets in a flash animation:

In the Film Professor James Quintiere :
(click on "Wie bewerten Sie den Brandschutz des WTC")

"The South-tower fireproofing was only 19 mm thick,
whereas in the North Tower is was double as thick,
and that's why the North Tower survived double as long."
