Excerpting 9/11: Los Alamos scientists answer questions on the New York nuclear attack


The information below is highly classified.  Asking the questions are Ian Greenhalgh and Don Fox.

The answers are by the University of California’s team that investigated 9/11 for the US Department of Energy.  Those answering are physicists who work in nuclear weapons design and testing exclusively, the world’s foremost experts.

The information provided was the result of the official 9/11 investigation finished by the DOE in 2003 and turned over to the White House, member of the US Supreme Court and key congressional committees.

This information was also reviewed by the JCOS.

At least 200 US officials saw this report.  Subsequent information has somewhat modified these findings based on the Los Alamos team reading the works of Dmitri Khalezov.

This is from only one portion of the investigation, the “how” portion.  It was originally published by VT in May 2014.

We are not saying this information is 100% correct but we believe it is largely correct.

These are the official findings of the US government, the real ones. Were you told something different?  If so, why?

Q: How many types of devices were used in New York on 9/11? I see where a case can be made for 2 or 3 different types of devices.

A: At least two different types of nuclear weapons were used. One is a standard micro nuke with a (W-54 Pit design) of less than 3 kilotons in size and greater than 500 ton minimum in blast size.

The bigger enhanced weapons use to bring down towers 1 and 2 were at least 1 to 3 kiloton in size. The fireball size limits the kiloton size of the weapon to less than 200 feet in diameter due to the size of the buildings. For every 1 kiloton of blast effect, you get approximately a 50-foot radius sized fireball. The size of the fireball can be much less when contained inside a steel structure. So a 3 kiloton weapon will produce a 150-foot fireball.

In a thermobaric design, the plasma fireball will remain the same size but it will be under much greater pressure and have more density due to the added iron oxide material in the fireball. When the fireball expands to its maximum size of 150 feet and just after it consumes all of the building materials in this area; (up to 150 tons for a 3 kiloton weapon) it begins to cool very rapidly.

As it cools it will expel the molten hot iron plasma under great pressure just like in a volcano. Shooting the “Lava” or plasma straight up the central core of the building. This volcanic burst of hot iron plasma will literally gut the inside of the building of anything that it comes in contact with. The follow on EMP pulse will add even more thermal heat to the structural components of the building. The EMP pulse will also destroy or erase any surviving computer hard drives in the area.

Q: The above-ground nukes appear to be much smaller than the below-ground nukes. And the nukes below the Towers appear to be different than the nukes below Building 7.

A: Yes each building needs a different amount of explosive charge to bring it down. This depends on the size, shape, and mass of the building. It is basic demolition physics. Buildings 4-6 were smaller requiring lesser charges to bring them down. Building 7 was bigger needing more than one charge. Towers one and two required much more charge and they needed a bigger hole to drop them into. These were the specially designed thermobaric weapons, used just for this purpose.

Q: We see evidence for neutron bombs in the USGS dust samples and the DOE water samples. The primary stage appears to be uranium as we see uranium in the dust samples and not plutonium. The secondary appears to be lithium deuteride as we see tritium in the DOE water samples. Could a thermobaric nuke use uranium for the primary?

A: Yes. A Uranium or Plutonium weapon can be used as the primary. The primary only needs to be a fission weapon design. Uranium is also used in a Plutonium weapon as a neutron reflector and energy booster. It reduces the amount of PU needed by 25 to 50%. The Uranium will not completely burn because it is a neutron reflector so it shows up in the fallout. 1 pound of Pu or Uranium will produce up to 3 ounces of fallout per pound of fuel consumed by the primary.

So if the weapon used 15 lbs of fuel it will produce 45 ounces of fallout. Most of this will be absorbed by secondary burning the remaining nuclear fuel in the thermobaric reaction. Adding Iron oxide to the secondary will reduce heavy radioactive fallout to acceptable levels after several days. It is a clean burn weapon. This is why it was used; fewer fallout problems to deal with.

For every 1 kiloton of energy produced in a nuclear explosion, it will consume up to 50 tons of iron or steel when it is sucked into the plasma fireball turning it into vaporized gas. When it cools and it is exposed to air or water vapor, it forms micro granules of iron oxide spheres in the 7 to 10-nanometer range.

All metal spheres formed by the plasma ball when cooled will vary in size, based on their atomic weight and wavelength of light that they absorb. The size is determined by the wavelength of the light radiated by the plasma fireball ranging from 30 nanometers (infrared light) down to less than 1 nanometers for (x-rays and Gamma rays). Iron only absorbs light in the 7 to 10-micron range, this is why they are that size. Gold Silver and Aluminum all adsorb shorter wavelengths so they are much smaller in size.

If the fallout sample is not taken directly from the very center of ground zero it will show less and less PU or Uranium in the samples the farther you get from the zero points of detonation. This is because most of the unburnt radioactive material does not travel very far from the plasma ball.

The secondary purpose of the iron oxide is to convert excess Gamma, X-ray, and Neutron radiation into thermal energy. Its third function is to convert Alpha and Beta radiation into heat. Its fourth function is to convert the excess free electrons produced by the blast into a bigger EMP pulse. Its fifth function is to contain or absorb the radioactive fallout and reduces its levels, helping in the cleanup.

If a very thick solid iron casing is used it will fragment just like in a grenade or in an artillery shell so softer iron powder is used. It also needs a lot of surface area in order to produce a thermobaric effect. When this hot plasma that is over 1 million degrees centigrade in temperature and over 5,000 degrees C. at its edges comes in contact with any other material it will either immediately vaporize it or melt it. Even if it does not melt it if the structural steel elements of the building rise in temperature above their Curie point then they will lose all structural strength and bend like pretzels.

This is basically a first-generation plasma weapon when used in a closed steel construction building. The closed steel construction also further helps contain the fallout, when used in a very tall steel structure such as on 911. The 1,000 foot long or tall steel central core of the building acts as a thermal waveguide for the hot plasma converting the central steel core into a Directed Energy Weapon. It also acts as an electromagnetic waveguide for the EMP pulse and directs the energy produced by the weapon straight up the central core. It basically forms a very crude Directed Energy Weapon.

The EMP pulse is vertically polarized and it is primarily absorbed by the building’s steel structure. The reaming EMP field effects do not radiate any farther than the magnetic near field produced by the original blast. The steel building acts as a Faraday cage absorbing and re-radiating the EMP energy as thermal heat, adding to the thermobaric effect. X-rays, Gamma rays, and neutrons are rapidly absorbed by most of the heavy materials in the building so very little of this radiation will travel more than a few blocks from the outside of the building structure.

In order to prevent a counter EMP from knocking out electrical power in lower Manhattan, the building had to be power downed just before the blast. This would require someone switching off the power in the transformer substation that was used by the WTC complex and the power company.

  1. Thanks for the easy to understand easy to quote and memorize information about the nukes used in 911 attack,
    next time I feel need to argue that everything official published or stated by USG about the 911 attacks is pure BS it will be easy to draw off the information given here….just the fact it’s the DOE that “controls” the nuclear weapons in USA is something maybe only 1% of people know.
    Those two tall towers the perfect nuclear chimney once they blew out the service elevator shaft blackages first…more and more ridiculous to think aluminum jets shot through the thick steel beam exterior and started carpet fires that melted steel trusses which collapsed the buildings so cleanly straight down.

    • Hi Bjackanik
      The twin towers a different skyscraper design than is normal, as it had exterior walls of very strong thick steel beams going all the way up and the floors trusses suspended between them so maybe those fat bolts held on the exterior beams

    • Beams are horizontal, columns are vertical.

      WTC 1 and 2 are visually deceptive in that they appeared to have a consistent cross-section vertically, but the columns were of course thickest at ground level and thinnest for the top floors. The result were buildings that had the weight distribution of a wibbly-wobbly child’s toy which makes the contention that the destruction was due to gravitational potential energy even more ridiculous.

    • Architects and engineers follow rigid guidelines as to what will work where. Architects lose it expressing style, but this was not a case of style. Nelson Rockefeller personally had ordered 2,500 exploding bolts mid 1968 before the test crash of a fully fueled Boeing 707 into the prototype tower, and 2,000 more for the Manhattan job site. The expressed use was for “future jet pack commuter hangar doors”. they were NOT for “escape hatches to escape a building fire or other catastrophe”. FEMA photographer Kurt Sonnenfeld captured the record of larger than average holes in the end flanges of some perimeter exterior steel panel assemblies, along with violations of the U.S. Building codes. At the time, we felt that Rockefeller’s reason stated was false. Exploding bolts only work once.

  2. Very neat, cautious and accurate. Dr. EdWard, MD, found low level radioactive isotopes mixed in with the paint on WTC tower structural steel remnants at Fresh Kills Landfill in New Jersey. As designed, these isotopes, after enrichment to ‘supercritical’, provided enough heat to instantly vaporize the steel they were painted on. The painters did not know they were applying such material, but I recently learned from a Manhattan Local Iron Worker that extra fat bolts holding exterior perimeter panel assemblies to each other were occasionally swapped out during the time the towers were in service. A total of 4,500 exploding bolts had been ordered 1968 to 1970 for the 1968 testing and Manhattan installations. Unless the nuclear fuel was maintained in the central neutron flux generators per 1969 contract and the Rockefeller Port Authority British Admiralty Law jurisdiction, it makes total sense that Davy Crockett pits or other source would be remachined to substitute for the original fuel.

    • I have always remembered that the exterior perimeter panels were about 30′ X 7′, and the stock they were made from was several inches thick at the bottom but near the top the 3-30′ long tubes were of 1.4″ stock with 1/2″ end flanges. The ‘spandrel plates’ welded to the vertical tubes to provide rigid panel assemblies were first specified to be welded to each other, but after discovery that the steel-exterior aluminum siding interface corrosion problem would not be solved by “ALCHEMY” by Rockefeller demand, the Rockefeller group moved in to supervise cutting corners in construction to minimize an incredibly large financial loss. The violations were massive in number and size. They, at the time of discover of this failure in 1968, knew that they had to come up with a plan. The Seattle engineers and most every college chemistry student and professor could tell you how fraudulent ‘alchemy’ is. Konehead’s description of the structure of the exterior panel assemblies is absolutely incorrect. The steel panel stock material at the impact levels was mostly 1.4″ thick with 7/16″ thick connecting plates, no welding(in violation of original spec) of the adjacent plates above the 15th floor, and the end flanges of these assemblies was only 1/2″ thick.

  3. I had the suspicion, for years, that the WTC. Towers, were ‘PULLED DOWN’, by Nuclear explosives! back in 1962-64 while stationed in Schofield Barracks, Oahu, HI. as an ’11C’ Indirect Fire Crew Man, (mortars; 4.2″, 81mm, 106mm, Recoilless Rifle Anti tank weapon), we also received training on the ‘DAVY CROCKETT’, a Recoilless Weapon, that fired Mini Nuke, Warheads. Back than, there were two variations of the Warhead, one was the W-54 and another with a lesser kt. If I recall, there were some 2100, weapons produced, if one just figures 25 to 30 warheads for each weapon, I am just guessing, we are talking about tens of thousands of Nuclear Warheads, projectiles? The US Army stopped using the ‘Davy’ in 1971. What happened to all those ‘MINI NUKES’? Who have taken possessions of them? Were there modifications, improvements done on them? If so, by whom? All legitimate questions! Where is our Government, Congress on this issue? Those ‘Mini Nukes’, less than 2 feet in long and around 20kg. in weight, could easily be carried around in a, ‘Back Pack’! Think about THAT!!
