Photographer Who Confessed Shocking 911 Criminal Conspiracy Complicity Silenced, Targeted

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Deborah Dupré  

Shattering the 911 coverup, architectural photographer Tom-Scott Gordon of Little Rock, Arkansas provided what is possibly the most important testimony evidencing that the 911 attacks were orchestrated by U.S. officials, who indirectly hired him to unwittingly help plan the attack nine years before the operation was activated. Gordon subsequently became a targeted individual at the hands of U.S. officials linked to the FBI. Richard Gage’s leading 911 ‘Truth’ group has dismissed Gordon’s testimony that he had foreknowledge of the 9/11 mass murder and was indirectly complicit in it, as were an untold number of others, most unknown to each other, yet to come forward 15 years later.

“As soon as I learned the North Tower had been hit, all I could think of was that I had personally seen the faces of those directly in charge of this operation,” Gordon had told Dupré in an exclusive interview with, before it was recently scrubbed from the internet.

Exclusivity of the interview with Gordon was not from his hiding nor pleading the Fifth Amendment. Despite threatening warnings he received; having been followed from city to city; having his homes broken into; and having his files ransacked on a few occasions while out of his homes; Gordon had made numerous attempts to provide his critically important testimony — as agents in the video below had tried, but were silenced.

Gordon justifiably believes his information is not meant to be exposed due to his being silenced. His testimony proved that 911 was orchestrated by U.S. officials and that he helped ensure their plan that involved many other people succeeded.

Architects for ‘Truth’ Richard Gage Dismisses 1986 WTC Building 7 Demolition Preparations

I’m eyewitness to the WTC Building 7 being built in 1986-87, ‘topped-out,’ and then, with heavy FBI security presence, covertly ‘reinforced,”‘ Gordon stated.

In building construction, ‘topping out’ is a ceremony held after the last beam is placed at top of a building. The term might also refer to overall completion of the building’s structure, or an intermediate point, such as when the roof is dried in. A topping out ceremony is usually held to commemorate the event. (Wikipedia)

“Architects for 911 Truth do not want to investigate this, even though it shows years of architectural planning went into 911,” Gordon told Dupré.

Could Gordon’s assertion about Architects for 911 Truth be accurate?

“I am copying and pasting the following from my friend Jeff Prager‘s Facebook,” The Project Avalon Forum’s Dennis Leahy wrote as a lead to his posting Dupre’s original Tom Gordon interview article. “Note. I think of Jeff as a one-man 9/11 research army, absolutely determined to discover every bit of information possible about the crimes of 9/11, and he would quickly remind you that there were multiple crimes, (including major financial crimes), not just the murders and the towers and even the pretext for wars.”

Leahy continued: “Jeff believes Richard Gage [head of Architects for 911 Truth] is a gatekeeper, and my gut is that Gage is deflecting evidence he sees as extraneous to the core case of 9/11 building demolition.

“If my gut is correct, and if all of Jeff’s research is correct, then Gage has blinders on, attempting to focus on the case he believes is critical to open the eyes of the majority of American citizens (which is theoretically where the pressure of a new investigation would come from.) If my gut is wrong, then Gage is the lead of the 9/11 truth limited hangout [controlled opposition] – attempting to help hide the nuclear nature of the building demolitions as well as the immense financial crimes.”

Gordon told Dupré, “Building 7 was perfectly sound. Building 7 was simply a ‘land bank,’ because they knew it did not match their future development plans for the overall complex. The steel framing was ostensibly required to be ‘rebuilt’ immediately after it was built.

“Officials at a Skillings engineers’ meeting I attended in 1987 warned some 200 people who oversaw the rebuilding of Building 7 to remain silent about what they knew,” Gordon said.

Skillings was the lead structural engineering firm involved with the World Trade Center. Dupré was soon on the phone with Architects for 911 Truth head, Richard Gage. He told Dupré that he had spoken to Gordon months earlier and that Gordon’s information would not appear on the organization’s website.

“We are only using forensic evidence,” Gage told Dupré, adding that he welcomed another conversation with Gordon, yet maintaining his gate keeping that some assert to be as criminal as those who directly participated in the 911 attacks.

Twin Towers demolition planning, 1987

The Twin Towers were overdue for demolition by September 11, 2001 according to Gordon. His supervisors had advised their staff of this, he said.

Being a professional photographer and having written on his resume, “SAIC graduate,” Emery Roth had selected Gordon to photograph the Twin Towers in May through June, 1987. Having obtained subsequent training under architectural photographers Julius Shulman and Otto Baitz enabled Gordon to work nationwide as a free-lance specialist for over 20 years.

“While working with the original WTC architects in May of 1986, Barry Yanku assigned me to shoot one-point elevations of all the buildings surrounding the WTC Complex over a two-month period, a very unusual assignment to say the least,” Gordon told Dupré. “I was suspicious as to why they’d chosen me instead of their regular photographers, Ezra Stoller and Norman McGrath.”

Brown and Root Men in Black

Upon moving back to Denver from New York City in 1991, answers to Gordon’s questions were revealed. In Denver, he had submitted a job-application to Brown & Root’s Colorado office and had a brief introductory meeting there.

“Brown & Root then called me back for an ‘urgent and mandatory meeting,’ but not to award me the assignment I’d sought to photograph, a huge new refinery in south Texas,” Gordon said.

Gordon was met at that conference by what he said were six to eight men in black suits, only one of whom he had met a few days earlier.

“They accused me of essentially working as an impostor,” he said. “When I explained ‘SAIC’ is ‘School Art Institute of Chicago,’ they all went silent.”

Gordon said that he challenged the men’s right to hassle him, simply because he had “zero credit history, zero points on my license, and zero arrests. Suddenly, their dark glasses went up and everyone was stammering in embarrassment as they fled for the exits.

“Later, I realized they probably selected me for the photography job because they thought I graduated from the technical division of School of the Americas, the ‘military terror training facility at Fort Benning,’” Gordon said, when in fact, he had graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he studied traditional photography materials and techniques.

“Any thorough background check could have easily resolved any mystery about my experience and education,” Gordon said.

When Emery Roth & Associates gave to Gordon the WTC assignment, their firm was about one-sixth its previous size, he said, adding, “Their expensive, nearly empty, uptown New York office might have offended any future client-prospects.”

“From my experience, the most suspicious of their activities was the sudden appearance of a brand new, highly accurate, aluminum/steel, 7’9” scale model of the Twin Tower curtain wall,” Gordon told the Examiner.

“That expensive scale model sat proudly in the architect’s WTC library conference room where I’d spent nearly a full week before studying the exhaustive photography archives of the WTC properties.”

By all appearances, the firm was nearly broke, so why had they commissioned such an elaborate model so many years after the buildings were complete? ‘Maybe for permanent display at MOMA?’ I thought, seizing that rare opportunity to touch it.”

Minutes later, Gordon’s boss, Mr. Yanku arrived for work that crisp Spring morning.

“He was visibly shaken to find me in presence of that sculpture. Showing outrage, he claimed the model was ‘explicitly to have been returned to storage by Monday morning,’” Gordon recounted. “Suddenly, he broke into an unseasonable sweat. He then went to make a phone call.

“’Fine, I’ll just go to the restroom,’ I said, shielding my right finger tips that were beginning to burn from a caustic gooey material applied to the inside of the spandrel panels. But soap and water accelerated the corrosive, or acidic reaction.

“Today, I contend that it was this caustic aggregate material which probably allowed the specially constructed airplanes to penetrate the building so easily.”

According to Gordon, everyone associated with two firms that had been involved with the WTC, Emery Roth architects and Skillings Associates, P.C. knew the entire group of WTC buildings had outlived their usefulness due to the extraordinary expense of “keeping them alive.”

In 1996, Emery Roth architectural firm ceased to operate, apparently due to financial distress.

“By the time those firms disbanded, everyone in both the architecture and engineering teams also knew someone was willing to pay a lot of money to make this knowledge-base disappear. Not having a salaried position when they disbanded, I wasn’t ‘offered a promotion, and a job in Seattle,’ like their full-time employees.”

“My testimony explains that detailed plans to implode the Twin Towers were completed by 1987,” Gordon said.

“My photo partner, Bill Charles, and I watched as Building #7 was being ‘wired’ by a secondary team after the steel framing was first completed.”

Threats after knowing buildings were scheduled for demolition

For years after 1987, Gordon’s house and apartment were rifled “evidently looking for his negatives and job log-book,” he explained, learning first-hand the trauma associated  with being an innocent Targeted Individual (TI).

Are You a Targeted Individual? Foolproof Research Criteria Secrets

“For several months after I finished the job in New York, two men tailed my girlfriend, Natasha Grotenhaus and me around New York City. She had many more opportunities to see their faces, ‘probably because they generally approached from my rear,’ as she had said,” Gordon told Dupré.

As Targeted Individuals can relate, Gordon said he was never directly confronted by the two people stalking him in New York. He was, however, “incredibly shaken” when he “saw them featured on the cover of TV Technology News. The photograph was the same two men who had been shadowing me, standing atop the WTC rubble.” he said. *** (See: “Capturing History at Ground Zero,” Hendrik, M., TV Technology News, November 28, 2001, online:

The two men, FEMA’s Denver-based Region 8 Deputy Public Affairs Officer Jim Chestnutt and Public Affairs Officer Kurt Sonnenfeld, had been assigned the job of photographing the WTC after the mass murders there according to TV Technology News.

“No camera crews were inside the closed-off perimeter Sept. 13 when Region 8’s head of public affairs for disasters Ed Conley arrived. He asked Chestnutt and later Sonnenfeld to capture everything possible on video,” reported TV Technology News.

“When FEMA was shopping for cameras we did research about what we wanted and picked the ones that seemed best for use in external and internal video consumption,” says Chestnutt. “I liked the new digital technology that allowed us to get professional-quality equipment at a lower price and because digital footage could be worked on a computer. We would be able to work out of a hotel at a disaster, edit pictures and send them from a laptop.”

The only crew at Ground Zero were Chestnut, Sonnenfeld plus two still photographers, Andrea Booher and Michael Rieger. (TV Technology News)

Gordon recounted, “Some six to eight months later, they showed up with one of my ASMP photography associates at a large open house ‘homecoming’ party Natasha and I held shortly after returning home to Denver. Natasha easily made positive ID, and alerted me to pay close attention to them, which we did.”

“They left within minutes,” Gordon said.

Later, Gordon confronted the pair when again, they appeared out of the blue at Haidar’s Studios in Los Angeles.

“I asked Jim Chestnut point-blank; ‘Why were you two assigned to shadow me in New York, Denver and now, here in LA?’”

“Chestnut said, ‘This interview is over,’ while Kurt Sonnenfeld turned for the door and they both quickly left.

After 911, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) quickly developed an early explanation of the collapses, that had become known as the “pancake” theory. It completed its WTC performance study in May 2002, declaring the “WTC design had been sound, and attributed the collapses wholly to

extraordinary factors beyond the control of the builders.”

FBI Removes Records

Gordon believes the most important thing he saw on the job was the FBI clearing out every important record in Skilling’s offices in Tower 1 in 1989.

He said that the most important thing he heard during that period was, “The exterior joinery of the WTC buildings has weakened significantly.”

What Gordon witnessed differs to thousands of other 911 information and evidence. According to him, however, not one other person from either firm involved has spoken out, much less testified. Furthermore, not one of the 911 independent researchers or groups was directly involved with the WTC buildings as Gordon was, he says.

Asked why he thought people are disinterested in his testimony, Gordon said, “I’ve only named a few of the other 200 or so direct witnesses in former writings. None of them have dared respond to my allegations, or threatened to sue me for liable.

“Eventually, most eye-witness accounts need to be vetted in a Federal Court Room.”

Legally, if any judge was to read this, this alone would command a trial according to federal statute. Morally, if any American reads this, this alone would command an apology to Muslims for unjustly wrongly persecuting them — as the Made In the USA 9/11 false flag intended.

      • The Zodiac Report, Nancy R Owens

        Ok, so we’re going to listen to another testimoney of another FBI agent and this will lead us to the truth? No, I very seriously doubt it. My name is Nancy Ruth Owens. In the 1980′s I worked for Pablo Escobar who was, according to LaRouche, the primary subject of 911 which was redacted. During my years with the still very active Medellin Cartel, these are the highlights:

        Bombed one Miami plane.
        Bombed a second Miami plane, (Sole Survivor because I left the plane).
        Bombed a Daytona train.
        Bombed Jimmy Hoffa who was attempting to unionize US Sugar.
        Bombed the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986.
        Killed “Jon-Jon” believed to be a Kennedy due to the fact that a Kennedy woman came to my hometown, also Pablo’s hometown, asking questions.
        Kidnapped Adam Walsh.

        Note: I was sold BY the FBI around late 1979 before all of this began.

        Siting yet another “Former FBI agent” is such a waste of time, don’t you think?

        Debi why are you running video w/ this piece on how “Arab hijackers” were let in by US govt? W/ the inference that ARABS DID 911. What game are you playing? The coverup is NOT about Arabs doing it w/ CIA recklessness. The Arabs, Qaeda etc had NOTHING to so with it- so WHY are you running this tired propaganda b.s?

        • Deborah Dupre

          Bad choice. My bad. I’ll change it. I appreciated the part saying the media sources covering up the crime were as guilty… Thank you.

      • deano

        Good work Deb, these missing pieces of the “jigsaw puzzle” are all fitting together……

        A point I have heard NOTHING about is HOW that 360 ft STEEL TV TRANSMISSION TOWER…..
        …Re-righted itself from falling at a 15 degree angle…..
        …then “VAPORIZED” to dust…..

        We hear nothing that the rooftop Tower, was the MSM Transmission Centre, and of course ALL of those floors that housed the “Broadcast Engineers” that put together the NEWS from the world…….

        Censored Media Coverage?……..EASY if all the opposing media outlets have their broadcasting system & experienced , expert operators all DESTROYED in one foul swoop…..

        and that CIA agent in the video has just admitted, they were NOT allowed to correspond with the FBI…
        Tell the truth?……..CIA GAG ORDER
        Expose crime?………TARGET the MSM that do >9/11 and their Transmission System Tower
        Complain?………….Lunatic? Conspiracist? Terrorist? Patriot? Anti-Pedophile?Whistleblower?
        Protest that?……….you are a PROTESTant…fined,jailed or SHOT

        ## Pity Marylanders dont understand why they are called Christian Prodestents……d..D..duh? doh?
        They fled Europe to the New World to ESCAPE the Catholic church >>the PROTEST movement
        Now who BURNs books that dont agree, or people by the thousands?
        and has always Covetted the Holyland> Crusade N0# 1,2,3,4,5,6,…….9….11th?….God Bless… :wink:

        • Deborah Dupre

          Thank you, Deano, for the compliment – and your astute observation about the transmission tower and related issues.

    • JoeW

      911 took over 20 years to plan and set up – it was a long process. Zionists had to get all their ducks in a row to attack the US and really did their hooks into us. Read Christopher Bollyn’s book “Solving 911″ – he does an excellent job of naming names, showing what part they played, and how it all went together … and he’s been attacked several times for exposing the truth (Zionist’s don’t like it when someone shines a light on their scumminess). Most of the theories (i.e. that the Saudi’s did it) don’t take into account that it was a sophisticated attack that required a huge number of pieces be in place and an equal number of pieces be strategically “broken” – something the Saudi’s are simply not capable of pulling off.

      • Deborah Dupre

        Joe, I’m grateful to read you explaining that it took many years and many people to achieve. I did not know, however, that Bollyn worked it out to be 20 years in development. And yes, as I’ve written, it was not the Saudis, as mainstream’s propaganda is telling the public now. Here’s to more people understanding as well as you – and thus, better days for all of us.

    • Pink Slime

      If he said it took a long time (since 1987) and planning and he was there at the START then it seems to me he has a GOOD EXCUSE to write a book about it.

      Book please….. :cool:

    • Black Humor

      Architects and Structural engineers for 911 truth movement is mainly made of retired pensionists, whom can not be silenced with career related pressures. They have been very consistent in bringing up the scientific impossibilitys of official version of events. These guys made a deliberate choice to stick with what they know best as professionals.
      Blaming these people for not bringing up or involving themselves in anything that can not be 100% verified is wrong. The entire 911 truth movement has benefited from the scientific evidence gathered by these people and since these professionals understood very well that they have to walk a narrow line in order to remain credible influence, insinuations against them is questionable.
      Can you really blame senior citizens being cautious against being ridiculed? If you ask me, it has been the duty of alternative media and authors like ms Dupre to bring us more details of the incident, after ”the old guys did their duty and said BOLLOCKS!”. Loud and clear for us to pay attention.

      • TSGordon

        Fortunately, some of the AIA’s with Richard Gage have come forward and contacted me for deeper information. Just last week a guy named Michael phoned to say he thought my piece was the “most convincing record of events about this case that he had ever read.” Having a degree in metallurgy, he freaked out when he recognized exactly why and how the towers were self-destructing. And I emphasized, NOBODY seems to want to revisit the actual structural specs that led to this unique exoskeletal design.

        “Of course the bolt-holds were decomposing, and the problem could have only accelerated over time.”

        I felt vetted, but I’m still uncomfortable with the way I described some of my story at the time. One of Richard’s top structural analysts pointed out I had the topping-out date completely wrong. A month later I recalled having moved from Spring St. back to Woodstock, because my apartment had been rifled, the only thing protecting my camera gear was a bike chain. I left but re-kindled a relationship with a neighbor almost a year later, and had blanked out everything in between. All except for one telephoto shot of the towers from Fort Lee. I couldn’t figure out why it was the only one left in the ‘B-file set.’

        Today, it’s ancient history, and we have no one but a Federal Government to blame.

      Gage & his crew of limited hangouts pick up where the fake Amy Goodman “reporters” stop. Remeber that TPTB control not just both sides- but ALL sides. Not only were the Twins wired early on for demolition? they were built w/ the Big Event /sacrifice to begin with. Sept 1,2001 had been published and talk of as The Great Day as far back as Destiny Mag in the 1930s- premiere British Israelist insider bulletin. Gage has achieved NOTHING. It will soon be a GENERATION since 911, w/ evidence & interest gone and the new kids coming up… Gage & his fellow operatives are designed to defuse, deflect and otherwise run down the clock on ever making a real impact re: 911 perps. Gordon could have been hired because SAIC is a very elite, insider intelligence agency contractor outfit like Booz Hamilton.
      In 2013 I took pix of the subways under WTC late one night. Maintenance guy told me he was there that morn, and that none of the news kiosks opened for rush hour business that day. These and many other disparate fragments need to be acknowledged, ARCHIVED and pieced together in the greatest detective investigation in history- before it is too late- which is fast approaching. That is why GAGE and his criminal activity need be exposed and called out NOW!

      • Deborah Dupre

        Fascinating, Anonymous. You really hit the nail on the head when you explain the time frame of the independent investigations — soon to be a generation, as lost as the assassination of JFK. And all while Gage and co. traveled city to city giving presentations, the US killed millions more in its manufactured war on terror based on the PSYOP that Muslims dunnit. When one uts it that way, Gage and co seem as guilty as mainstream news and other sources that fortified the big lie.

        • Black Humor

          Dear ms Dupre, Princeton university professors made a study about the the state of democracy in USA. Result was surprising, US is not democracy, but an oligarchy. How do you think small coalition of senior citizens could make their voice heard, when far larger ”grass root” movements have also proven out to be ineffective in the world of contemporary US domestic(and foreign) politics. Yes, they have made presentations, what does one expect? Group of ”old timers” to saddle up and attack White House with guns blazing? Or maybe kidnap director of FBI and enforce the agency to do their job?
          These guys have kept on talking and spreading knowledge for 15 years now and wider audience is finally starting to pay attention. I think these guys desrve our gratitude, not cheap ”anonymous” insinuations.
          They have literally put their money where their mouth is and refused to be silenced.
          How succesfull has any of us been? Criminals are still out there at large! Without these guys there would be a lot more people believing the official version, because ”authoritys dont lie about these things”, do they? :neutral:
