What we can't talk about in Norway

9/11 / The truth about what really happened 11. September 2001 has not yet been clarified. But the insight Skaftnesmo conveys is solid enough to establish that a plane attack was not enough to bring down the three World Trade Center buildings.


The attack on the World Trade Center in New York on 11. September 2001 became the occasion for the US launching several wars, in which Norway is also a part. The immediate number of casualties was 3000 with a further approx. 3000 died as a result of the aftermath of poisoning during the cleanup work. The ongoing acts of war have resulted in the loss of a further hundreds of thousands of lives. New laws, which are said to prevent terror, have caused us the loss of ordinary civil rights and degraded our lives. Everyone knows this, and everyone can agree that 9 / 11, as the attack is called, has been the most important political event in the world so far this century.

Based on my professional experience, I had wondered how these three skyscrapers crashed. My colleagues' slaughter of the official report was the start of my further study of many aspects of 9 / 11, and I became convinced that the truth of what was really going on is vital to democracy.

Like most others, I took the explanations for good fish.

So far, we have not been able to read about these things in a Norwegian book, but now there is finally a very long-awaited publication that gives a first introduction to many important aspects of 9/11. The book has the title TabuTheme 911 and is written by Trond Skaftnesmo. As the title says, he emphasizes describing and explaining the taboo culture that has stuck to the subject throughout the years. This gives the book a distinctive character unlike most of the other 9/11 literature, which primarily seeks to reveal errors and lies in the official reports. The preface to the book is penned by the Danish chemist Niels Harrit, who describes the taboo culture's relationship with HC Andersen's adventure "The Emperor's New Clothes".

About the Patriot Act, one of the new anti-terrorism laws in the United States, Skaftnesmo writes: “In the fall of 2001, a watershed for legislation and practice was applied to civil rights, not only in the United States, but in countries by country. which has introduced similar anti-terrorism laws. These laws now give the authorities ever-increasing powers to monitor, imprison and persecute individuals based solely on suspicion of intent for planning of criminal offenses. This is the case here thought crimes.»

Free fall

I am an architect and for many years as a professor taught the art of architecture at NTNU. I therefore express myself as a professional about the aspects of the case that are concerned with constructions. Already on the very day of the attack on the World Trade Center, I found that there was some muffling throughout the course of events, but like most others, I took the explanations for good fish. When the official report finally came out after several years, pressed by the survivors, it was quickly characterized as unscientific fabrication and largely false.

This impression was reinforced when NIST's (National Institute of Standards and Technology) report on the third building collapsing â € “building 7 â €“ finally came after seven years and new pressure. NIST even admits that the three skyscrapers fell into almost free fall. The buildings fell from the top down. When something falls freely, it means there is nothing underneath that can slow the fall. And when is there no wonder? It is only when this below has already been removed by being blown away. So what does that mean? This means that the buildings were taken down by a so-called controlled demolition. And then we know that it takes months and lots of people to prepare for such a demolition. Is it the 19 hijackers who managed this?

I am an architect and therefore I speak as a professional about the aspects of the case that are about constructions.


Skaftnesmo thoroughly and accurately describes the purely physical prerequisites for the crash of the WTC skyscrapers, as understood by experts. He builds on the work done by Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth, an association of more than 3000 architects and engineers from around the world. Many of them are highly renowned experts in building design and have built skyscrapers (such as at the World Trade Center in New York). There are, however, aspects of this that are rarely mentioned and which require more sophisticated explanations to be understood, but the insight Skaftnesmo conveys is more than solid enough to establish that an attack on aircraft was not enough to bring the buildings down. Skaftnesmo writes: Â “Check the collapse yourself before reading on. For example, you can watch the 2-minute short video: WTC 7This is an Orange. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand that what you actually see goes badly with what you are offered as an explanation. […] If you still have doubts about whether this is the case, you can listen to an expert on controlled blasting: Danny Jowenko on WTC 7 controlled demolition»

The attack on the Pentagon and the alleged plane crash in Shanksville is also excellently described and commented upon, and it is not surprising that both events are likely to be misrepresented in the official explanations.

Tabu culture

However, our news media has completely failed to discuss it. The attempts to bring up the issue in the daily press have been brutally rejected, and readers' debate posts have been rejected. I can mention the unfortunate imam who was hunted when in 2009 he suggested a different explanation on 9/11 than the official one.

Skaftnesmo illustrates the taboo culture with examples of friend conversations that go awry because two friends have completely different views on what to ask questions about. He also describes the dispute between Klassekampen and Ny Tid about 9/11, where Klassekampen represents the daily press' self-censorship.

TabuTheme 911 explains the preconditions for, and the run-up to, 9/11 – the many "false flag" operations that have characterized US politics since World War II, the last of which was the attack on Libya. It is also interesting to see how President Obama tried to put a stalemate on "conspiracy theorists" by getting White House lawyer Cass Sunstein to infiltrate groups of "truth activists". Skaftnesmo cites what Sunstein writes in the article "Conspiracy Theories" (2009): “Government agents (and their allies) could enter chat rooms, online social networks or even into real-life groups [â € ¦].” Sunstein recommends engaging Screams of net trolls and provocateurs, to infiltrate and "break up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories".

Last year, the Sunstein received the Holberg Prize for "his influential work in the fields of forensic science, behavioral economics and related fields." Skaftnesmo writes: Â «Med related fields is maybe monitoring and infiltration, provocation and deception as state art? Or does this come under behavioral economics? ”Not good. What we do know for sure, though, is that Sunstein's Holberg lecture was entitled "Freedom."

TabuTheme 911 is easy to read with annotated text boxes and helpful notes at the bottom of the pages that make it easy to check the facts mentioned online.
The literature list lacks a couple of titles that have helped me understand parts of the event, but then it is important to understand that 9/11 consists of a hugely complex number of single events within widely different subject areas that will require diverse publications to be produced in a complementary way. But start with TabuTheme 911 â € “If you dare!

The book was launched on Litteraturhuset March 30,
with a debate in which Niels Harrit was invited.
