WTC cameras, locks, electricity turned off weekend before 9/11

October 26, 2010

By Craig McKee

Many of us can’t believe explosives were placed in the World Trade Center because it would be impossible to “sneak” them in with so many people watching.
This assumes a lot of things. First, it assumes that people are paying attention when “work” is going on in the Trade Center. Secondly, and more importantly, it assumes that even if people raise questions that someone is going to listen to them.
Scott Forbes, who was a senior database administrator for Fiduciary Trust, located on the 97th floor of the South Tower received a remarkable notice three weeks before the 9/11 attacks. The Port Authority of New York informed his company that there would be a “power down” on the weekend of Sept. 8 and 9, 2001. This would mean that all power would be off in the top half of the south tower for most of the weekend.
Forbes has called this unprecedented, because to have a data centre lose power for two days requires major preparations and disruption. He reports that as part of the power down, all security cameras and security door locks were non-operational for about 36 hours.
“Remember there were no security locks on doors or security cameras, so access was free unless a door was locked by a manual key. Seeing so many ‘strangers’ who didn’t work at the WTC was unusual,” Forbes said.
The work was claimed to be part of an upgrade to the Internet service in the building. No one has explained why this work required a complete cutting of electricity.
“There were guys in work clothes with huge tool boxes and reels of cable walking around the building that weekend,” he said.
There had also been a heightened security level at the towers for two weeks because of several alleged phone threats. The extra security, which included bomb-sniffing dogs, was removed on Sept. 6.
Forbes wrote to the Port Authority and to the 9/11 Commission to bring his suspicions about the power down to their attention. He never received any acknowledgement of his letters, and no mention of any of this made it into the 9/11 Commission Report.
It might be useful to point out to those who aren’t aware of it that the company that had the contract to provide security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines and Dulles International Airport at the time was called Securicom (now Stratesec). One of the directors of the company from 1993-2000 was George W. Bush’s younger brother, Marvin Bush.  The CEO of the company from 1999-2002 was the Bush brothers’ cousin, Wirt D. Walker III.
Between 1996 and 2000, Securicom installed a new security system in the World Trade Center. Unfortunately, the details of what work they did were destroyed along with the towers on 9/11.
After Marvin Bush left Securicom in 2000, he became a director of HCC Insurance Holdings Inc. (until 2002), which was one of the companies insuring the World Trade Center. Small world, eh?
If the power down was the only suspicious work being done in the towers, you might be inclined to discount it. But it wasn’t. In 2001, there were many vacancies in the towers; there were even entire floors that were empty. Long-time Trade Center employee William Rodriguez, who has talked about hearing massive explosions in the lower part of the towers on 9/11, also says that he heard major work being done on some vacant floors.
He describes loud banging, what sounded like heavy metal dumpsters being moved around, and lots of dust over everything. And it was all very secret. He says that in at least one case, the suspicious work was being done on a floor where the elevator didn’t even stop.
Financial analyst Ben Fountain of Firemen’s Trust has also described odd work being done in the towers. He says his company, Aon Corporation, was evacuated numerous times from their offices in the upper floors of the South Tower. They were also moved from one floor to another.
Fountain reported hearing loud noises on nearby floors, including the sounds of pneumatic drills. He also says there was a great deal of fine white dust all over everything.
Does any of this prove explosives were placed in the towers beyond a shadow of a doubt? No. But it’s part of the puzzle. And there are only so many incredible coincidences that one can swallow as being coincidences. When you add this to the enormous amount of evidence that only explosives could have brought the towers down the way they fell, the conclusion becomes inescapable.


    1. curiousplumber88,
      I don’t think there are many people who would imagine that the entire job of wiring the building with explosives took place over the weekend before. But some last minute details may have needed a power down just before that Tuesday.
      The more likely scenario for the major work is the cover of new “elevator upgrades” that did indeed take many months to complete, and still was not “finished” on September 11, when the towers exploded.
      You did notice that the towers exploded? Didn’t you?
      Of course you have likely given up this “plumbing job” in the 3 and a half years since you made this comment.

      1. If a large crew of 200-300 or more were trained in advance with photographs, videos, detailed written instructions, mock ups of the interiors, etc.; how much time would it take? I don’t have a clue.

    2. When your dealing with the biggest criminals on the planet, CIA and Governments, good luck with that. You get to know too much info,, they zap you too,,, RUTHLESS PEOPLE !!!!! They don’t give a SHIT !!!

      1. George H. W. Bush’s uncle Herbert co-founded Dresser Industries which originally mined ASBESTOS. Bush inherited Dresser Industries and with it billions of dollars worth of ASBESTOS liabilities and lawsuits! Bush dumped Dresser on Halliburton through his partner in crime Dick Cheney. In October 2000, Dresser Industries was granted co ownership of a Patent for a “low noise multiple detonation device” for use in mining and DEMOLITION applications.
        The “smoking gun!” Bush cousin Wirt Walker lll who had been CEO of Stratesec bought Put Options on United and American Airlines just days before the 9/11 hijackings. The SEC referred this to the FBI which could not tie it to the alleged “19 Arab Hijackers.” Even though at least one of the 19 Arab Hijackers was issued an illegal visa in Saudi Arabia by a CIA Agent, Former CIA Director, POTUS and consultant to the Saudi Royal family, George H. W. Bush, was in a meeting with Saudi Prince Band or as the 9/11 attacks were happening! A CIA Undersecretary also bought Put Options on United and American Airlines only days before 9/11. Another “Unknown” person has not come forward to collect their $5 million profits from their United and American Airlines Put Option. Could this person have been Jeb Bush?

    3. That proves what exactly? Let us know when you can show us how Mossad wasn’t living in the towers for free in the years leading up to 911.

        1. Hello sir my name is Renee I’m doing an essay on the 9/11 and I need an phone interview talking about your inky on what you think happen

  1. Has anyone been able to find any kind of documented evidence (emails, building notice etc.) of the power down going to happen in the towers on the weekend before 9/11? I know in one video Scott Forbes say that the NJ/NY Port Authority deny that it even happened.

  2. I appreciate the civility of the comments here, so as a structural engineer I might add that the focus on the work done in the top of south tower is interesting, since that part of the building completely defied the laws of gravitational physics during the collapse sequence. That huge block should have kept rolling off eastward a few hundred metres causing massive damage to buildings across the street but it almost seemed to turn to powder as the next lower section of the tower collapsed beneath it at almost freefall. The only thing that could change angular momentum of the top block like this is the complete and rapid structural removal of the central core supports, where all the elevator shafts were.

  3. I’ve worked on a dynamite crew for 3 years doing demolition. I’ve never seen 3 buildings freefall EVER,, in this manner without controlled explosions . Come on people,, you don’t have to be a rocket scientists to figure this one out.. and these are the people you put in power of your Government . Criminals !!!

    1. Tony, if the information in this blog is true, then it is logical to assume these people were not put in power by the citizens. For if they conned us into believing a false event was reality, they certainly defrauded the electoral system.

    2. Just curious – in your 3 years doing demolition, how many buildings have you seen free fall other than the ones where you were using explosives?

    3. In August 1999 I was on he observation deck at one of the towers. I saw a Halliburton case, or one that looked like a Halliburton case, placed under one of the outdoor telescopes by itself. No suitcase owner around. Barely any tourists. No guards or Twin Tower workers to notify that this seemed strange and suspicious. I hung around for 15 minutes more until I grabbed my friend and told her we’re getting outta here.
      In retrospect, it seems probable the placed suitcase may have been a ‘test’. No sane New Yorker or NY visitor leaves an expensive suitcase unattended unless he wants it stolen or has important cause to leave a Halliburton case standing there by its lonesome.

        What kind of a “test” are you suggesting “they” were doing?
        Who do you think “they” were “testing”?
        This sounds real nutty! ….. maybe I’m missing something ….. please explain.
        Thank you!

            “Too bad you don’t get it”
            Gee, you’re very observant, Ben.
            I “don’t get it”…..that’s why I said:
            “maybe I’m missing something ….. please explain”
            So, now that we’ve both decided that “I don’t get it”…..let’s move on to answering the questions:
            What kind of a “test” are you suggesting “they” were doing?
            Can you answer that simple question, Ben?
            Who do you think “they” were “testing”?
            That’s another simple question.
            Here are two bonus questions:
            Who are “they”?
            What can June’s delirium possibly have to do with 911?

          2. I would also like to get those “who” “why” questions answered, i dont see how that connects anything to 911, even though i do understand what she was trying imply but dont see the connection unless there wasnt any intended.

            Thank you, Ihpdrive!….. it’s about time someone understands what June was implying.
            So, what was June implying, in your opinion?
            What kind of a “test” are you suggesting “they” were running?
            Who do you think “they” were “testing”?
            Who are “they”?

  4. I believe 9/11 was a catalyst to go to war on two different foreign fronts and the implantation of social control mechanism’s domestically. Of course our government conspired 9/11, what unholy Machiavellian Devils.

    1. This was the first thing I thought when I read that part.. I tried to think of it in terms of a residential security install performed by, as an example only, ADT – if ADT were to wire a house up for burglar and fire protection, but then the home burns to the ground – does ADT no longer have records in their OFFICE of the work they performed..? It’s rather insulting the way they talk to us..

  5. How does Scott Forbes, or anyone, explain his survival? Has Mr Forbes spoken concerning the alleged deaths of his fellow workers and did he stay with Fiduciary Trust ( concerning whom SEC problems and penalties stemming from practices starting on 9/12/2001 is most intriguing)?

  6. How about instead of you all bitching try help each other to figure out what happened I find it a it of a coincidence that all the camera crews were in place before the event happened it makes me wonder also if it was setup that would explain why so many allies got killed by friendly fire makes me kinda think that allies found out what went on and we’re shot as they were going to expose the truth about 9/11

  7. For those people posting links to 911myths – the site was created by Popular Mechanics (PM) but the publication had to purge staff before they published their article defending the official story of 9/11 because so many staff thought it was shoddy journalism. PM is owned by the Hearst Foundation and Catherine Black heads up the publishing division at Hearst. Black’s husband, Thomas E Harvey, is former special assistant to the Director of CIA. Also the main researcher for the original Popular Mechanics article was Benjamin Chertoff – Michael Chertoff’s (former head of homeland security)younger brother.
    I suspected something was up, when I realized how poorly the research was done, how it had holes in it, and how it was very unprofessional. It was particularly obvious to me, as I was doing my doctorate at the time.

  8. So who were the construction workers in the buildings during the power down? Non-existent or what?
    And 4 black boxs never recovered? They can find bone fragments less than an inch long but a big old red flight recorder disappeared?
    water board bush 200 times and ask him again 😉

  9. 11 was an inside job… I’m so convinced . i’m making a movie based on forbes documentation…it’s time that the cover is lifted…and for all u nay sayers…correct… if this was all planned by hundreds of people…some one would have leaked..guess what…many have, and have been picked off.. so yes.. people are leaking..and paid the fiddler.. And so many have been brain washed that 9/11 happened the way it did, no “conspiracy”… no one wants to see the truth…it’s a genius plan..first the shock…no one could possibly think anything than 19 highjackers plotted..the planes ran in and dropped the towers.regardless of always reverts to.. it happened, and done…..and you know what… we all bought it/// it’s exactly why this works so well… we’ve been told how it happened …as soon as you question.. you are called a freak if you think otherwise.
    M davis… the truth will come out..
