Nearly ten years after the tragic events of September 11, entrepreneur David Hooper began to question the official accounts of that day. Nagging skepticism soon turned to obsession. His quest to uncover an alternate truth behind the attacks soon created disharmony within his family and near financial ruin. Hooper's feature-length documentary The Anatomy of a Great Deception encapsulates his findings during this tumultuous period of discovery.

Of course, Hooper was not alone in his perception of a conspiracy. A growing number of regular citizens and figures of various industries had embarked on their own amateur investigations by the time his suspicions were first sparked. Their findings inform much of Hooper's own conclusions.

For he and many others, the curious crumbling of Building 7 represents one of the fundamental building blocks of a potential conspiracy. Located 300 feet from the North Tower - the length of a football field - Building 7 fell to the ground in the late afternoon of 9/11. Investigators claimed it had fallen due to structural compromises caused by the intensity of heat from the neighboring Twin Towers. Yet, in researching other high-rise buildings imperiled by raging fires, Hooper was unable to locate a single incident of a nearby building collapsing as a byproduct of such an event. In fact, none of the buildings that were actually engulfed in flames collapsed either. Several engineers have also come forward and claimed that the temperature of the fires on that day could not have successfully melted the steel structure of the towers. Could this indicate evidence of a controlled demolition?

In painstaking detail, Hooper continues to lay out findings from that day which support this troubling hypothesis, including sightings of molten metal, ear witness accounts of audible explosions, and the curiously symmetrical trajectory of each tower's collapse. Scattered throughout are archived interview clips of researchers, investigators, architectural specialists, and even fire department officials who all echo these same suspicions.

Like all conspiracy films, The Anatomy of a Great Deception presents a case that may be embraced wholeheartedly by some and dismissed outright by others. But it argues its theories with sincerity and conviction.

Seems to me Giuliani had to hurry to get rid of evidence ,perhaps, if the conspiracy theorist are right. anyway definitely Giuliani has here in northeastern PA relatives congressman stitch .who is friends with congressman Lou Barletta ,who is friends with bush w. Barletta has a dump here in the hazleton area where giuliani's wife is from, a stitch. a place where evidence might have been taken. Concerning thermite or other types of incendiaries. These people should be investigated.

This is too much. I was really hoping for some new facts and revalations but this is the same old nonsense. "Experts" talking about how a jet fuel fire can't get hot enough to make a steel beam bend. Sure, in a controlled test it won't. But how many controlled tests were done with hundreds of tons of building pressing down on the test beams?
Also, I kept hearing about all the high rise buildings that survived hours long fires with no structural damage and are still in use today. But how many of them had a jumbo jet crash into them?
I have a LOT of questions about 9/11. There are no answers here.

I will always doubt how they were destroyed. Those who think they are always right, have no way of knowing when they are wrong. I feel that a LOT of folks will have to answer for those deaths.

49:20 Building 7's bottom walls fell out - yes because the penthouse and roof had fallen in and concertinaed the other floors which combined with the bottom walls bowing out allowed the other walls to drop straight down.

44:16 shows the fire chiefs stepping through the lobby windows that had been shattered by the great vibrations that travelled like a shock wave down the tower.

Jet fuel did not DRIP DOWN THE LIFT SHAFTS - there were thousands of gallons splashed into the elevator shafts as the plane impacted.
And from all the plane crashes we've seen the jet fuel explodes in a mighty blast.
Confine the blast in a tall building and it would sound like a demolition.

Only imbeciles believe that the plane impact could be synchronised with explosions.
The so-called explosions were just the huge floor sections snapping their bolts and amplifying the sounds.
As the fires softened the steel it would first expand and then as it softened it would sag and collapse with great bangs.

9/11 was just a bunch of Muslims brainwashed to believe that they would get 72 virgin donkeys if they hijacked planes.

People need to fully understand the capabilities of the military-industrial complex. If you read about Operation Northwoods which was vetoed by JFK in March 1962 it is a window into the things the war machine consider to provoke international conflicts. When you read about what the Joint Chiefs signed off on in 1962 you will have no drama imagining what that corruption could have evolved into in another 4 decades. 9/11 was more than a false flag Operation. It was an enormous financial crime. It was a live war game. It was a betrayal of the people.

The twin towers was a conspiracy to finish the job. Ten Global Economic UNion's, where the EU was the first model too begin with. Please read Daniel chp 2-3, this will explain where we are now. The USA would become the north american union (NAU) Biden and Obama exploited the electoral and voter count, remember we have created the largest voter fraud network in American history. So confessed biden before the world. That's how bad it is. Pence gives the democratic party the win. We're headed straight into a masonic nwo, where digital currency becomes the norm, and you're freedom's are recent history.

Dear Marc Powell, I struggle with this like you do and have now for some time, however it has helped me pave a path of complete self awareness for myself and I instill that into my children daily. To a strong minded individual one can choose two paths that we see so very clearly in today's messed up America: RISK OR FEAR. This documentary is fact no matter how hard it is for you to swallow, just like covid was a "plan"demic and the ukraine bs currently shoved down our throats is a scam. There is only ONE political party and it's called the establishmen-PERIOD. They are controlled by a small group of the world's richest and are on puppet strings....I almost feel sorry for you as your denial of 9/11 posting in february of '22 shows You are the person drive around in their car by themselves double masked with a Ukraine flag as your profile picture on your social media accounts as your virtue signal and salute CNN and MSNBC in your tiny little bubble without any reality of all the world really works. Good Luck to you, you'll need it since you choose FEAR over risk of stepping into independent thought and outside of the safety net of leftist lunatics blindly obedient to this kind of crap that you are displaying in such breathtaking naivety is destroying america in real time now because of the same core minds creating crisis as back in september 2001.... WOKE THE F UP my goodness?

At another point in The Anatomy of a Great Deception, a photograph taken by an NYPD photographer is presented that appears to document smoke pouring from windows on the ground floor of the south World Trade Center tower. David Hooper informs the audience that the picture was only reluctantly released for public viewing and that it shows smoke from an explosion in the South Tower lobby that the Government doesn't want the public to know about. However, other pictures on the same roll of film and released at the same time clearly show that the smoke was actually coming from a burning vehicle in a parking lot in the foreground of the picture presented by Hooper. There was no explosion in the lobby as Hooper falsely claims.

There is also an issue with the version of the Norman Mineta testimony video presented in Anatomy of a Great Deception. The version in David Hooper's film was deceptively edited. The first few words were truncated from an important sentence which made it sound as if Mineta was describing an order issued by Vice President Cheney to stand down jet interceptors and allow Flight 77 to fly into the Pentagon unchallenged. In fact, when all of Mineta's words are heard along with the question he was responding to, it is clear that the order Mineta was talking about was issued by President Bush and it was to do just the opposite... shoot down Flight 77.

One has to ask why the filmmakers would choose to present a doctored version of the Ginny Carr audio recording where it sounds like there was a crashing sound a few seconds before the Flight 11 impact. The original unaltered version of the recording confirms that the second crashing sound was heard AFTER the plane crash.

Anatomy of a Great Deception is the most ironically titled film I have ever had the displeasure of watching all the way through. It consists of nothing more than misinformed opinions, doctored evidence, concealed evidence and deliberate misrepresentations of fact and science all tied together with a maudlin back story and peppered with sanctimonious Bible quotes. If it weren't for the serious nature of the subject matter, the film would be classified as a comedy. The filmmakers should be ashamed of themselves.

I was in Manhattan on that day. Men and women who went to the site, later developed cancers that resulted in disability and death. We heard stories from First responders. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families for healing, and justice. This film plays a part in bringing the truth out. I walked around the ground floor of WTC about 3-4 months prior. I had an uneasy premonition of the basement filled with black smoke in the shopping level. I renember imagining crawling on rhe floor and wondering how people would escape.
I believe I tapped into what was at that time a plan that had still to be executed. It made no sense until the day.

Why the hell are the children chanting kite must hit steal and the teacher says the fast way? Who the hell chose those words? There is no inquiry to the obvious. Why the hell does the video show smoke shooting out of the building as it falls. Obviously it was rigged with bombs and there is testimony of hearing bombs in basements. Why did the liquid steel burn for 6 weeks it was so hot? The plane nose comes out the other side after hitting multiple steel columns. And on and on. I mean come on. How can this lie stand and the people dont care?????

Critical thinker your concerns over someone making a quick buck is something I can't argue for or against. Nor can you though. But to alleviate your questions, that I can do.

"how many people do you know of have the knowledge of how to bring down a building that big..." Just about every expert who does that type of demo work for a living. Sure, it is a tall building but the laws of physics don't change. Given enough time to plan such a task, piece of cake...obviously.

"how in the hell would they not find any evidence, you cannot hide that much explosive." What are some of the first words out of the mouths of detectives at a murder scene. "Don't touch anything" right. They need to examine and gather evidence. That was not the case here. Nobody was allowed to examine and gather evidence and any secondary evidence from bystanders, was dismissed. Very easy to do when you control the investigation.
"slam a plane into the bank... there are tons of backups, just like in building 7"

Banks operate on a huge network of branches and servers, connecting everyone within that certain banks holdings. The paper trail is endless and required to cover their ass, your ass, and the US financial system's ass. The CIA for example, sure as hell won't have any top secret information spread all over the network with a paper trail for every foreign nutjob to hack. It is top secret, eyes only, and kept locally. It is easier to contain, protect and as we now know, easier to make go away, backups and all. I can almost guarantee that anything that needed to be saved, left that building well before the 11th.

The question should be, is there any justification for the government to do something like this? I can't imagine any. But apparently, there are some that can.

Unfortunately, the CCP has taken control of formerly red-blooded Americans; Who've been transformed into frightened, quivering cowards- afraid that if they allow an honest comment to appear on a thread - their masters will punish them. With schools, churches and "gatherings" all cancelled; And with the Govt asking folks to call the cops if their neighbors have visitors - they believe that thinking Americans will just give up their God given rights to free expression. Their children (and probably they themselves) will lead lives of perpetual desperation. They'll go to their graves hating themselves for being so yellow.

People don't realize how thoroughly controlled our mainstream media is. The Dulles CIA began infiltrating network TV, the wire services, newspapers & syndicated radio in the mid-50's. They've been fully locked down for decades. Pull up a copy of 1962's Operations Northwoods (not the Wiki re-edit). JFK laughed in Joint Chief's Chairman's Lemintzer's face when he presented the op to Kennedy. It explains what our Govt had been mulling for 39 years before they pulled it off on 9/11/01. Before youtube removed all the videos in December, an 8th grader with a curious mind and an internet connection could fully solve the 9/11 hoax in an afternoon.

This is a very good effort. Narration is very good, audio quality is good, video clip quality suffices most of the time, and it's organized well. But the music is poorly chosen. In many cases, it just doesn't fit the scene or the narration. Having an experienced or even intuitive music director in this project would have taken this doc up a notch to compete with the top 9/11 docs.

The argument that molten aluminium contacting the water that runs through both buildings is totally sound, it would indeed cause big explosions and aluminium melts at a much lower temp than steel, less than a 1000 degrees. Building 7 could well be the only puzzle here.

In April 2001, I was watching Fox News @ 0800. Condelizza Rice had just landed at JFK Airport and was leaving the terminal when a bunch of reporters surrounded her and began asking questions. One asked her about rumors that planes would attack the World Trade Center Towers. The usually sweet natured Rice went ballistic and started yelling at the reporter and refused to answer any more questions and left in a huff. This broadcast only played that once and disappeared. WTF?

Do you really think that when he stayed at the school that any unauthorized aircraft would be able to get anywhere near the pres, did you not think that the air force would have him covered or are you like the other conspiracy theorists and just looking to make a quick buck?
I have a few questions, Correct me if im wrong, but how many people do you know of have the knowledge of how to bring down a building that big... FROM THE TOP DOWN? How would anyone know how to bring a building that tall down, only using the top 10% floors to bring down over 100 floors. Lets not say the whole building was wired because they can fine a ball bearing from a omb when a building is blown up, how in the hell would they not find any evidence, you cannot hide that much explosive. Also there was something about documents missing that had accounting for billions of dollars in building 7... They supposedly were gone due to the fire. Go slam a plane into the bank that hold your mortgage and see if that makes your mortgage disappear.. it wont because there are tons of backups, just like in building 7. so it wasn't intentionally brought down to make documents disappear. There are so many more issues but like i said, i have a feeling that your sole reason for this is simply to make money..

Two friends of mine dismiss the false flag explanation for 911. But they do so with a surprisingly honest reasoning. They concede it may be a false flag, but will not think about it because that is too painful, too horrific politically. I agree the politics that leads to the murder of 3000 people does not fit with America's self image. But neither does the invasions of many countries, killing millions over the centuries, e.g., 2 million in Vietnam. Why are lives of citizens more valuable, their deaths more unsettling? Could it be they would have to admit none of us are safe from "the" govt., and the term "our govt." or "my govt." is delusional? Could it be that the political paradigm of all nations is fundamentally identical? Could it be that America is not exceptional, morally? Could it be worship of "the flag, and the country for which it stands..." is a mistake, an attempt to control minds?

I actually heard the interview on pbs or some public access station where Silverstein says he told them to” bring it down”. Why this has been such a mystery. He said there was damage, ect., but that footage existed. Whether or not it was destroyed, don’t know. My family and I watched it on 9/11. He clearly say he told them just” bring it down”, referring to building 7, live on 9/11 that afternoon. No one else saw that??? Guess they were watching major networks. Geeze, hope I don’t go missing now..

Structural steel begins to warp when exposed to temperatures of 800 or more. The NFPA has conducted numerous studies showing that heat from an ordinary fire in a residential wood-frame structure can exceed well over 1200 degrees. Several floors of building 7 were free burning for hours. Why any scientist knowledgeable in these areas would claim that this collapse is inexplicable is itself inexplicable.

This towers coming down thing has been revealing of the psychological make up of different people. When you explain it to some, they recognize right away that something is wrong with the govt BS story. Others choose their emotional world view over facts and evidence. Their emotion and ego trumps everything else. Their egos cannot handle their rose colored world view, that their govt wouldn't do such a thing, being blown to bits.

It is typical and interesting that people's opinions depend on how much independent homework they have done. If none, they believe the govt lies or suspect foul play. If some, they believe demolition. If more, they believe more than demolition was used.

Some young adult Israelis were caught filming the towers coming down at a distance. They were aware that it was going to happen. A Russian analyst claimed that the only way it could have happened the way it did was via a nuke in the bottom, disintegrating everything above it. Easy to claim. However, it seems there would have been more surrounding damage as well unless they were somehow able to focus it in only the upward direction.

Whether nuke/s were used or whether it was some unknown to most, directed energy weaponry, which turned the steel beams to dust while falling, hard to know. Yet is known that demolition was used on the lower floors of the towers. I've not heard of nuclear radioactivity being discovered like there was super thermite.

Not hearing of it doesn't mean much... but if there wasn't, that leaves the Directed Energy Weaponry. Do they exist? Certainly. Nikola Tesla developed it some 80 years ago or so.

It is absurd to believe that heat from a building 300 ft away would cause another building, of steel and concrete, to come down, unless it crushed it, which it did not. Even then part of the building not hit would remain standing.

It is most humorous to hear a news gal announcing that Bldg 7 also came down 30minutes before it happened. Not sure if this docu shows that since didn't watch this one.

If I were to guess, I would think they decided it would be a good test of their Directed Energy Weapon capability but had other modes of destruction in operation to make sure.

People on/near the floors where the planes entered were seen frantically removing clothes. Not something you see with flame heat. Microwave, yes. Part of the double or triple energy beam. The unfortunate souls were disintegrated along with the building.

My sincere hope is that all involved meet a similar fate or rot in a tiny jail cell. Unlikely. The court system of the usa, like most countries, is corrupt as hell.

All conspiracy pales compared to the fact that one face playing multiple roles is used in nearly every picture presented by the media. Train your eye by comparing one facial feature at a time from the same angle. Google image any movie, tv program, beauty pageants, astronauts, lottery winners, rock bands, etc. Takes about two hours practice to see enough to know this is true. After a few months nothing will get past you.

When you can't see the sameness then one face being used is proven by recognizing the techniques used to change appearance. Usually you won't see two or more faces presented from the same angle at same time. Angle significantly changes appearance even a small change in angle. To compare moving pictures you must remember what the feature looks like and the angle then wait for another character presented from same angle then quickly compare. Look for fake redness and fake lighting and shadow on face. Pay no attention to size of feature instead focus on shape. Notice different size nostrils. Look for the lines that begin a fake double chin or fattening of the face. Notice lips slightly covering part of teeth to make them look smaller. Notice upper lip way above teeth. They will blacken back of mouth to make row of teeth seem shorter. Notice facial expressions. Notice mouth and eyes open or closed and all degrees in between. Fuzzy pictures. Start noticing patterns of combos such as one face with glasses, another whiskers, another a cap, etc. Which is a simple example but with time you will start seeing patterns. You learn as you go. Don't give up. It is designed so you don't see it. This has been going on since the beginning of movies and TV also print.

Two easy examples to see. Google image the band Bananarama. One face is longer, the head is bigger. Don't be fooled. When you google image with lots of pictures look at all of them until you get the sameness. Notice how features will change shape in Google image because they are brought together for various sources that have manipulated the face for the occasion.

Google image movie Back To The Future. There are three pictures with dark background with M Fox and the old professor standing beside each other looking same direction. Ears same, overall shape of faces the same, chin same, nose same. Eye area different because it is the only area they aged the old man's face. M Fox and old man are same face.

This extends to the world stage right on down to many small towns. With a well trained eye start looking at government bodies including city councils, school boards, supreme courts, etc.

Magicians and their minions are established in our societies for generations and centuries. Nothing is as it seems.

I could not watch this because I assumed it would be just another version of a horrible thing that happened. I must say that I have done a lot of reading of all the versions of what happened on 9/11 but the real truth came out in a book I read that posed what really happened; mini nuclear charges were placed at critical spots to bring those towers down. The real criminals responsible are radical Israeli soldiers that planted those nuclear bombs! President Trump was supposed to tell us what really happened but I am still waiting for that to happen!
