February 27, 1933 (02:19)
Fire erupts inside Reichstag— Marinus van der Lubbe is found next to the building. Historians believe the Gestapo police soaked the house of Parliament with gasoline, and Lubbe set it ablaze. This act of terrorism allowed Hitler to pass the Reichstag Fire Decree and the Enabling Acts.
September 11th, 1941 (02:39)
Pentagon construction begins— three months later the Imperial Japanese Navy attacks Pearl Harbor and 2,403 Americans are killed. Although Franklin Delano Roosevelt was warned of an imminent attack, he declares Pearl Harbor an act of War and asks to enter World War II. Operation Paperclip recruited top rocket scientists from Nazi Germany six months prior to the "Trinity Test."
Hiroshima and Nagasaki (02:23)
The Manhattan Project cost the United States almost two billion dollars and created over 130,000 jobs. Harry Truman only learned of it after Roosevelt's death. General Leslie Groves explains why compartmentalization is necessary in security.
August 4th, 1964 (02:29)
Two American ships report being attacked by North Vietnamese ships— President Lyndon Johnson declares it an unprovoked attack and orders retaliatory strikes. According to documents released by the National Security Agency in 2005, the attack never happened. In September 2000, the Project for a New America Century releases a report calling for a massive military upheaval and warns that unless "a new Pearl Harbor" occurs it will be a long transformation process.

Watch footage from September 11th and its aftermath while credits roll. (Credits)
Rigged System (02:30)
President Mubarak and General Hamid Gul questioned evidence that Osama Bin Laden organized 9/11. Bin Laden appears on videotape discussing the attack, but does not take responsibility— the translation was completed by the Department of Defense and experts feel it is incorrect. The hijackers left a lot of evidence, including a passport.
Deviation From Panic Button Plan (02:18)
The Federal Aviation Administration sends fighter planes to intercept off course commercial airlines within 10 minutes— on 9/11 four commercial airliners were off course and none were intercepted. Before entering Booker Elementary School, Bush was informed a plane struck the north tower. Andrew Card informed Bush the second plane struck during the visit, but Bush remained at the school.
Project Vigilant Guardian (03:09)
The Joints Chief of Staff, NORAD, the Air Force, and the Central Intelligence Agency all conducted crisis drills on 9/11. When the NEADS traffic controllers heard the twin towers were hit, they assumed it was part of the exercise. Andrews Air Force Base only deployed fighter jets 10 minutes before the Pentagon was hit and ordered the pilots to fly toward the Atlantic Ocean.
Twin Towers Struck (02:04)
Listen to the confusion surrounding the twin tower attacks while watching footage recorded on 9/11.
Pentagon Struck (01:56)
At 9:37am, American Airlines flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon— The Federal Bureau of Investigation declares it a federal crime scene. Under duress from a Freedom of Inform Act request, two security videotapes are released to the public. Hani Hanjour entered the United States to become a pilot, but he never took a course.
Morning of 9/11 (03:05)
Hanjour and his accomplices stayed six miles from the National Security Agency at the Valencia Motel. Flight 77 hits the only portion of the Pentagon re-enforced to withstand a terrorist attack which housed naval operations, Naval command and Naval Intelligence. Norman Minetta testified that the vice-president was asked if his orders still stand prior to the crash— two years later, the 9/11 commission reported that Cheney was not with Minetta.
Planned Implosion Theory (03:25)
At 9:59 am the South tower collapses to the ground within 10 seconds. The North tower and World trade Building 7 also are reduced to rubble within two hours. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cannot explain why the towers collapsed and did not perform any tests for explosive residue.
Residue Test for Explosive Material (03:31)
Janette MacKinlay gave Dr. Steven E. Jones material to be analyzed from Ground Zero. After performing several tests, he and Dr. Farrer discovered the material was similar to nano-thermite, but with a carbon component. It would burn quickly and at a higher temperature than other materials, making it extremely explosive.
Massive Temperatures (02:43)
It took three months for the fire to be put out. Ties have been discovered between Turner construction, Secureacom, and Bush. All records of work done by both companies were destroyed on 9/11 or never existed.
WTC Steel Shipped Over Seas (04:06)
Bill Manning called the clean-up effort "a half-baked farce." Although it was originally suspected the passengers of Flight 93 overtook the plane, the 9/11 Commission concluded that Ziad Jarrah crashed. Chris Kanicki describes that you could only see broken trees, dirt, ash and a hole— an intact 757 could not have crashed at the site and no plane has ever completely disintegrated.
World Trade Center Building 7 (03:10)
World Trade Center 7 housed the Department of Defense, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a branch of the Secret Service, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Office of Emergency Management and Control Center, and documents pertaining to over 3,000 Security Exchange investigations. Details of office functions remain classified. No other buildings near the twin towers collapsed.
Free Fall Speed (02:55)
Jones calls Building 7's collapse "strange." The steel from the building was removed and destroyed— no pieces were analyzed. Two eye witnesses describe an explosion occurring in the lower levels of the structure. The official government report explains that the collapse was a result of fire.
Wars and Peaceful Tomorrows (04:01)
The official United States explanation of the events of 9/11 is inconsistent and inaccurate. Janette MacKinlay describes the psychological manipulation performed on the American people— Jones explains that the truth will be exposed. The narrator urges the public to "ask questions and demand answers."
