Meet Paul Salo. He wants to do 9/11 again.
"If you doubt anything about 9/11," Salo begins in his video, "we want to blast this to smithereens." Nice choice of words.
And you can help! All he needs $1.5M, and according to his Indiegogo page, he is already $187 there! He also swears "we are not a team of tin foil hats. Of [sic] truthers. We just want to see it."
Uh, this guy is definitely a truther.
"In this project we will recreate 9-11 to the best of our ability."
What that means is he wants to buy a 747, load it with jet fuel, and fly it into building at 500 miles an hour. He is even putting passports on the plane, because what if those are the key to the whole thing!?!?!?!
The only thing that is going to be different is that he will put GoPro cameras inside the building and the plane so they can see everything that happens. Let's just hope jet fuel doesn't also melt GoPros.
A real go-getter, Salo already has a doomed building picked out. It exists in Thailand, and he is already in talks with their government about the project.
Any differences between his experiment and 9/11, Salo theorizes, will prove 9/11 was an inside job. "If there's just a smoking hole in the building and nothing happens, you pretty much know [9/11] is a hoax. Because it's obvious right?"
Wow, this guy sounds like a real-life science man! So what are his qualifications? Per his crowdfunding page:
I've started several difficult projects in Asia including a real estate company in China: A headhunting company in Japan and sold $50-100 million institutional grade assets.
Very vague. Almost as vague as the details to 9/11. COINCIDENCE???
Despite the fact that he has his own "website" (a Facebook page) at 911redux.com, which is basically just a landing spot for all the articles being written about him, the people of YouTube aren't really buying his scientific acumen.
Anai Bendai says:
I suggested something like this in 2005 but realized it was totally pointless until you use an exact recreation of one of the WTC towers. You do realize this will only truly be a meaningful experiment if the building is the exact same height, composition, density, ambient temperature and so on of one of the original WTC's right? There are so many variables to consider here that it's just not feasible. Not just any old skyscraper will work - the ludicrous "pancake collapse" theory requires the weight of all 110...
Peter Konig sums up the situation more succinctly:
No one would put this much energy in if they didn't think someone put explosives in the WTC and covered it up. But dude, if someone wanted to cover up something as big as 9/11, your little vacation to Thailand isn't going to change that.
