intriguing video has appeared on You Tube that appears to show
a FDNY film crew being interviewed in the aftermath of the 9/11
attacks by the the director of the FBI’s New York office,
who has suspicions that one of the World Trade Center towers
took a "secondary hit" before collapsing.
The video appears to be part of NIST's recent
FOIA releases and therefore has not been seen before now.
On first viewing it appears to be nothing special,
just the horribly familiar scenes of dust and rubble from the
aftermath of the attacks. However, it contains a stunning exchange
between officials and firefighters.
The action appears to be taking place immediately
after the collapse of the South tower and before the collapse
of the North tower.
The film crew exits a building and make their
way along the dust and debris littered streets.
At around 2 mins 50, a man in a suit approaches
the crew and announces himself as "FBI, Barry Mawn."
Mawn (pictured below with Rudy Giuliani) was
at that time the director of the FBI’s New York office.
Mawn then asks the FDNY crew a question in the
form of a statement - "That tower got a secondary hit?"
The firefighters respond by saying they are unsure but they
heard a rumbling and ran for their lives as the tower then collapsed.
The audio is difficult to hear but one of the
firefighters then says he "saw it blow right out the side
of the building" to which Mawn asks "that was the
The firefighter then states "I don't know
if it was a plane or an explosion."
As they continue their description of events the
noise of a jet overhead interrupts them as people begin to panic.
Someone, presumably another FBI agent shouts "is that ours?"
to which Mawn replies "yeah that should be ours".
At this point a large gathering of suited individuals
walks into view and a woman in the group yells "go to city
Mawn then asks "where is the mayor?",
from which it can be deduced that this group is affiliated with
Rudy Giuliani and they are hurriedly leaving the scene.
The woman leading the mayor's group then curses
at reporters telling them to "get the f*** out of here".
One commenter has speculated that the reporters
are with Pat Dawson, the first NBC News correspondent to report
from the scene of the attacks at the World Trade Center.
Indeed, this backs up previous evidence that the
initial working premise was that trucks packed
with explosives aided the collapse of the twin towers. This
fact was reported by USA today journalist Jack Kelly:
The details were also covered by MSNBC's
Rick Sanchez, who also reported that officials
strongly believed a van packed with explosives parked underneath
the towers had contributed to their collapse.
Barry Mawn has other intriguing connections to
the events of 9/11. He was a close friend and associate of John
O' Neil, the former deputy director for the FBI who quit his
job out of frustration that his investigations into Al Qaeda
terrorist plots were being blocked. O'Neil became head of security
for the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001. His body
was discovered in the rubble after the attacks after he had
helped people escape the towers before they collapsed.
The information revealed in this short piece of
footage once again goes to show that there is still masses of
evidence regarding the 9/11 attack that we are yet to discover.
It should encourage 9/11 researchers to continue to dig deeper
and demand a new independent investigation.
