One of two men who corroborate my claims about the power downs – in public, on the record, under their real names.
One of the very earliest “debunker” sites has been trying to discredit people discussing the power downs for years:
Scott Forbes interview on Deadline Live radio show:
Here is an interview with Scott Forbes published on November 24, 2005:
GW: You’ve previously stated that on the weekend of September 8 and 9, 2001, there was a “power down” condition in world trade center Tower 2, the South Tower, and that this power down condition meant there was no electrical supply for approximately 36 hours from floor 50 up. Do you know what time the power-down started?
SF: All systems were shutdown on Saturday morning and the power down condition was in effect from approximately 12 noon on Saturday September 8, 2001.
GW: When did it end?
SF: Approximately 2PM on Sunday 9/9.
GW: You also stated that, without power, there were no security cameras. How do you know that? Could there have been backup generators which powered the security cameras?
SF: Within my company security cameras were monitored and videos retained for reference. They were powered from the usual power supplies so they would ave been out of action like all other electrical appliances.
GW: You also stated that, without power, there were security locks on doors. Are you just referring to outside doors, or also office doors? Were the locks electrical or key? If electrical, were they battery-operated?
SF: I was referring to the secure doors accessing my companies floors (and other companies). I do not believe there were any battery operated doors.
GW: You also stated there were many, many ‘engineers’ coming in and out of the tower. Did you see any of these folks yourself?
SF: Yes. By “engineers” I mean there were workmen on site, in overalls.
GW: Did these folks look “middle eastern”?
SF: No, not particularly, I mean I don’t recall registering that the
guys were of one racial group or another.
GW: Did you recognize any of them from previous “work” in the tower?
GW: Finally, you’ve stated that you gave your information to the 9/11 Commission, but it took no interest. How did you get the info to the Commission (phone, email, letter?)
SF: I contacted the commission through their website and by mail. But I was never acknowledged nor contacted.
GW: Did the Commission ever follow up with you?
GW: Anything else you wish to tell us?
SF: I have another piece of interesting information … after 9/11 my company, along with others, was in disaster recovery mode at a location in New Jersey. At that site were literally hundreds and hundreds of eye witnesses to the events of 9/11. As a British National I was contacted by Scotland Yard in London to interview me on the events … but I’ve often wondered why US authorities, like the New York police or FBI, did not interview all those witnesses available altogether in New Jersey.
It seems like incompetence to me at best … negligence at worst.
