“We’re still in the dark about nearby Shanksville, because the mainstream media has not pursued the discrepancies in the official story — yet they have been forced to respond to the outcries of 2,300 architects & engineers.” — Tim Haldeman

Penn tour 2015If the official account of Flight 93 — the only hijacked airplane said to have crashed into the ground instead of a building on September 11, 2001 — is dependable, then the United Airlines jet flew across the skies over Pennsylvania that morning creating a firestorm of controversy among local 9/11 truth activists, who are demanding answers to the mythical accounts of all four flights.

In the thirteen years since, many Pennsylvania citizens have joined the quest for the truth about that fateful day. Close, careful examination of the evidence has consistently shown that the official accounts are not accurate and that a new, independent investigation is needed.

Their spirit of inquiry will lead these Keystone State residents to attend three live multimedia presentations that Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is giving in Harrisburg and the Scranton area from March 20 through March 22.


The first, on Friday, March 20, will be held at 7:00 PM at the Best Western Premier, The Center Hotel and Conference Center, in Harrisburg.

The Four Points by Sheraton in Scranton is the scene of Gage’s second presentation, to be made on Saturday, March 21, at 2:00 PM. The Sanctuary Church in the village of Newfoundland, some 25 miles southeast of Scranton, will host his third and final presentation on Sunday, March 22, at 2:00 PM.

An opportunity for Q&A discussion will follow each event.

“The Twin Towers story was the main event – even here in Pennsylvania,” notes Tim Haldeman of Capital Area Citizens for 9/11 Truth, the local AE911Truth Action Group promoting Gage’s presentation in Harrisburg.

“The Pentagon crash was next on the list. The Shanksville event, which took place nearby, was comparatively underreported and poorly investigated,” Haldeman continues. “I’m convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt that at all three sites things happened that were very different from what we were told at the time. We’re still in the dark about Shanksville, because the mainstream media has not pursued the discrepancies in the official story.”


Shanksville hoax


Haldeman and other members of the organization he represents feel that 9/11 “steered world events” in an ominous direction, that it continues to influence national policies, and that it must be re-examined and clarified by a truly independent investigation.

“As did many others on the day of 9/11, I watched the events as they unfolded on TV and was horrified by the collapse of the skyscrapers,” recollects Haldeman, who has a degree in computer science and mathematics and a particular interest in physics and engineering. “It wasn’t until years later, when I was viewing the destruction of the World Trade Center on Internet videos, that I understood that the collapse could not have resulted from jet fuel and office fires. Instantly, I recognized that the official story was incorrect and misleading. That realization sent me on a journey of doing my own research. Though the evidence speaks for itself, it took a while to get accustomed to the fact that the official narrative was an intentional myth.”

Having paid close attention to AE911Truth’s thus-far stonewalled attempts to persuade Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. to open a new inquiry, Haldeman and his group are now reaching out to Pennsylvania leaders who, they believe, are in a position to examine the evidence, make a sound decision on that evidence, and share their findings with other people of influence.

“Hopefully, with everyone we reach, there will be enough of a groundswell to call for action,” Haldeman adds.

“Even though Richard Gage will be discussing primarily the destruction of the Twin Towers at his presentation here, it’s possible that, since we’re in Pennsylvania, we will also be demanding a new investigation of Shanksville. In that case, we would want to address the leadership in our own state government. If word of our efforts gets publicized across the nation and the world, perhaps other groups and political leaders will realize the utter necessity of reinvestigating the 9/11 events in Washington, D.C., and New York City.”

The logic for local leaders having legal jurisdiction to pursue the facts of the Shanksville crash echoes the spirit of apetition presented to authorities in the neighboring state of New Jersey. Authored by defense attorney, retired policeman, and New Jersey 9/11 Aware founder David Meiswinkle, the petition requests an independent investigation of 9/11 by state legislators. “Since the federal government did such a poor and reluctant job investigating, it is incumbent on the states to do a better job with a follow-up,” the NJ911Aware petition reads.
