Oral histories describe demolition of WTC, while New York Times turns its back on them

Via 911blogger, a new interview with Professor David Ray Griffin (on Guns and Butter radio) where he goes over many of the absolutely extraordinary eyewitness testimonies from oral histories released last year which describe explosives going off in the WTC.

The New York Times worked with familes to get these tapes released and then apparently made the decision to turn it's back on what the tapes were describing.

“[T]here was just an explosion [in the south tower]. It seemed like on television [when] they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions.”--Firefighter Richard Banaciski

“I saw a flash flash flash [at] the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building?”--Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory

“[I]t was [like a] professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'."--Paramedic Daniel Rivera

The above quotations come from a collection of 9/11 oral histories that, although recorded by the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) at the end of 2001, were publicly released only on August 12, 2005. Prior to that date, very few Americans knew the content of these accounts or even the fact that they existed.Early in 2002, the New York Times requested copies under the freedom of information act, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration refused. So the Times, joined by several families of 9/11 victims, filed suit. After a long process, the city was finally ordered by the New York Court of Appeals to release the records (with some exceptions and redactions allowed). Included were oral histories, in interview form, provided by 503 firefighters and medical workers"
Prof. David Ray Griffin

That 9/11 blog was sure an interesting read. Do you know of any similar material concerning 7/7? Having believed the WTC was a controlled demolition for a while now, I am interested to find out more about the London and Madrid attacks.

Apparently, it's not just the explosions which were controlled, it's 'knowledge'-in the form of not being able to, or forbidden to include these people's accounts in the reporting of the event.
Possibly, probably IMO, the same sort of control would be exercised in the case of 7/7 at least: don't know about Madrid.

I'd be quite willing to bet my life on it, Jultra.

phu, I know prisonplanet have a large 7/7 archive, well worth checking out and absolutely right to be interested in it, there are some real questions there...

anon, yes there's a reason they don't want a real inquiry for sure

richard, it certainly seems like that, it's very worrying..
