A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” #3 – Conventional Controlled Demolition

Edited by Peter & Ben

It’s been over a year since I sat down to review another part of Dr Judy Wood’s book ‘Where Did The Towers Go?’ so I thought it’s about time I put on my tin foil hat and dived in. This time, let’s look at the seventh chapter, ‘Conventional Controlled Demolition: Bombs in the Buildings’ which, unbelievably, I found myself agreeing with for the most part.

where did the toers go
The chapter is basically a critical look at the popular conspiracy theories regarding the collapse of the World Trade Centre twin towers. This really took me by surprise as the majority of the people who have promoted this book to me are hardcore 9/11 conspiracy theorists who believe in these popular theories. The more I read, the more I found myself agreeing with Dr Wood’s conclusion on this subject. Don’t get me wrong – the chapter is still peppered with some very strange claims relating to the events of that day. For example, the chapter starts by saying that the World Trade Centre towers fell faster than they could in a “gravity-driven collapse”. At first I was thinking what you probably are – that she is referring to the speed at which a building may be destroyed without the help of explosives; but she is in fact referring to the speed at which an object falls to the ground in a vacuum. The reason she believes the towers fell at such speed is because in a previous chapter she misinterpreted seismic data collected by Columbia University – mistaking the peaks when the first debris hit the floor to be the beginning of the collapse. What’s very disappointing with this chapter is that Wood never gives her explanation of this speed of collapse – instead she hints that answers are coming later. One thing she does do, however, is poke holes in other theories regarding the collapse.

Dr Wood does an OK – not fantastic, but OK – job at debunking many of the theories regarding the collapse of the towers. She discusses everything from the use of thermite to bring them down to a “mini-nuke”. Unlike in the rest of the book, her arguments here are somewhat sound, but are bloated and contain worthless information. When reading it, I got the impression that she was trying to impress me with her level of research but, in reality, it came off as if she was trying to pad a book out that is already mostly padded with pictures. For example, she talks about one of the bomb sniffing dogs (Sirius) stationed at the twin towers, and how it and other dogs were unable to detect any explosive material in the building. This is a fair point, but she goes off on a tangent about how Sirius died that day, when his remains were found, and the last thing his master said to him. She also found it necessary to add a picture of the dog. I would have liked it better if she would have stuck to her core points. That it’s difficult to rig a building with explosives for demolition and almost impossible to rig up two quarter-mile tall skyscrapers without anyone knowing. That explosives have a shelf life and that their reliability diminishes with time, so it would have been unwise to build the building with the explosives pre-installed. And that just because you hear an explosion does not mean that there were explosives.

“Many witnesses reported hearing explosions. But the sound of an explosion does not necessarily mean that a bomb was detonated. Everything that goes “boom” is not necessarily a bomb” – Dr Judy Wood

Perhaps the most fascinating section in this chapter is Wood’s rebuttal to those who say that thermite was used to bring the towers down. In my opinion, this is one of the more popular theories and is based on the paper published by Bentham Open journals, who have been heavily criticised in the scientific community for claiming to be peer reviewed, but accepting and publishing a fake paper generated using SCIgen. The paper the conspiracy is based on is called ‘Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 Word Trade Centre Catastrophe’ and claims that in the dust following the attacks, they were able to isolate and identify thermitic material that may have been used to bring the towers down. Wood, however, does not agree and points out the impracticality of using thermite and that the authors of the paper never found thermite in the first place. Instead, they found the ingredients of thermite which are very common – which Wood clumsily rebuts by saying that if we were to find “chocolate, sugar, and nano-wheat (flour) in the dust that would not prove that chocolate-chip cookies turned the buildings to dust”.

Overall I am both impressed with this chapter and confused why so many who believe that explosives, thermite, or a mini-nuke brought down the twin towers would promote a book that contradicts their theories. And for those of you thinking that this book may actually be worth the paper it’s printed on, DON’T. This chapter is an island of sanity in a sea of crazy and, although she hinted in this chapter at what is to come, I don’t think you will believe what she says actually happened that day in later chapters.

7 Comments on A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” #3 – Conventional Controlled Demolition

  1. Wake up sheeple. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Big Brother only has as much power as you grant him. Independent thought is powerful. After reading WHERE DID THE TOWERS GO? by Dr. Judy Wood, Charlie Pound of the U. K. produced the song WAKE UP THIS YOUR ALARM! Unless you enjoy being fleeced, leave the opinion herd and read Dr. Wood’s book too. It has been over 14 years since a secret technology was used to create terror and mass murder for the sake of imperialism and hegemony based on a fiat money system in its death throes. What are we as a people left with? A published scientific forensic investigation that concludes a type of Directed Energy that was used as a weapon “dustified” the World Trade Center complex and a group of shadowy people determined to suppress that evidence by any means. This is the sad reality that we live in. Wake up!

    Before you can charge someone with a crime, you have to know what crime was committed. Should a death be ruled a homicide by gunshot, there better be a bullet hole in the body…

    The order of crime solving, that one must first identify:

    1) WHAT happened before determining
    2) HOW “it” happened…before one can determine
    3) WHO did “it” or
    4) WHY they did “it.”

    Since writing her book, Dr. Wood has come to understand more clearly how cover-ups work. People are encouraged to skip step #1 and begin arguing about step #2. In order to argue about HOW “it” happened, people are left to IMAGINE what “it” was that happened. From then on, they are only addressing an imaginary problem, not a real problem. And they can never ever solve the real problem unless they begin with step #1, which defines WHAT the problem is they need to solve. So skipping to step #3 is a useless path that leads you nowhere. See how easy a cover-up works! ;-)


    Other examples of Directed Energy (not necessarily used as a weapon) are radio waves, cell phone signals, TV remote control signals, wireless internet signals…etc.

    Those who want to cover up the evidence of what happen often falsely claim that Dr. Wood is talking about a specific weapon and a specific location of it (e.g. laser beam from outer space, or “spacebeams”). This disinformation campaign was initiated by Steven Jones on 11/11/2006 in a presentation he gave in California (available in the internet archives), telling his audience that “Judy Woods (Dr. Wood) says it’s a laser or maser from space” while showing how difficult it is to hold his hand like a beam from space. Not only does Dr. Wood NOT SAY THAT, she actually RULES THAT OUT. The mechanism of destruction of a laser beam would be from heat and produce a bright and blinding light. But we know the buildings were not cooked to death. The term Directed Energy is used because energy is directed to do something different then it normally does and it is directed to do this within a certain geographic zone. [As a mental example, think of directing the binding energy of matter to repel instead of attract. A solid object would turn to atomic-sized dust. Direct this to happen within the WTC complex and not across the street.]

    At the end of Chapter 20 in Dr. Wood’s book, she explains why playing “name the weapon” game is counterproductive. Name dropping trendy terms is not synonymous with understanding. The easiest example is HAARP. The full capabilities are classified. But people often name-drop the trendy term to APPEAR to know something. A tongue-in-cheek definition of HAARP stands for High Amplitude Advancement of Real Propaganda. They are just substituting “HAARP” for “Bin Laden.”

    In Dr. Wood’s book, the closest she comes to “naming a weapon” is merely describing what it creates: magnetic-electrogravitic-nuclear reactions (page 365). But as soon as someone starts talking about a name, people will stop looking at the evidence which is another form of a cover up.

    Early on, Steven Jones created a website he called “The Journal of Nine Eleven Studies” or J.O.N.E.S. It is referred to as a “peer-reviewed journal” but the only peer-reviewing was to screen out true scientific work and post what he wanted his followers to believe. For the first two years, it was primarily used to promote disinformation about Dr. Wood’s work. For example, Jones recruited a patent attorney for the oil and gas industry (James Gourley) to write hit pieces on Dr. Wood, refuting “ray beams from outer space.” This convinced his readers that “Judy Woods” must be talking about “ray beams from outer space” and that “such nonsense has been refuted.” Refuting false propaganda about Dr. Wood’s work does not refute Dr. Wood’s work — yet it creates the belief in the average person that Dr. Wood’s work has been refuted.

    Steven Jones and Greg Jenkins also claimed that it would take more than five times the world’s energy to destroy the WTC towers. Does that mean their thermite came from off planet or “outer space”? LOL Steven Jones used to ridicule Dr. Wood during his talks saying that “Judy Woods needs to make calculations to see if it is even possible to turn the buildings to dust”. But any reputable scientist knows that calculations are not a part of observing empirical evidence. What are the calculations for, to prove the buildings are still there or if the buildings are gone? Why not just look? No assumptions needed with empirical evidence.

    The bottom line is that no one has refuted anything in Dr. Wood’s book nor can they. They only refute their own false propaganda about her book, not her book. Other detractors claim that “she hasn’t identified the weapon that was used so she’s got nothing.” To the contrary. The evidence is PROOF that there exists a technology that can do what was done. It happened. That is, the fact that the buildings mostly turned to dust in mid-air shows that there exists a weapon that can turn buildings into dust in mid-air. It happened.

    The sub-title of the book, “Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11” indicates that the book contains evidence of what happened on 9/11 and it is indeed evidence that a technology exists that can do what was done. But this technology does not have to be used for evil purposes. It can be used to provide free-energy to the world much to the demise of the oil and gas industry. That is, Dr. Wood is noting that the same technology that was used for evil can also be used for good. It’s a silver lining in the dark cloud… while also trying to stimulate thought about “what are we doing here? learning new ways to kill or to live”?

    (Dr. Wood provides extraordinary, overwhelming, and conclusive evidence.)

    by Dr. William L. Baker*

    “The effects can vary in the type of damage mechanism (e.g., blast/fragment, thermal, or ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE [c-DEW: been there, done that]) as well as the magnitude of the energy deposited on the target so that it will be just enough to defeat the target while minimizing collateral damage.”

    “Scientists will have to overcome technological hurdles, such as the production and storage of antimatter, the ability to propagate sensory information, OR THE ABILITY TO HARNESS AND EXTRACT ENERGY FROM THE ENVIRONMENT [Hurricane Erin 2001: been there, done that], before these sciencefiction concepts will become reality.”


    *Dr. William L. Baker retired on 1/2/10 as the Chief Scientist of the Directed Energy Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M. With an annual budget of more than $300 million, the directorate is responsible for all of the Air Force research and development of lasers, high-power microwave and advanced optical technologies. The directorate conducts advanced technology research to support major applications such as airborne lasers, large optical systems for space situational awareness, airborne high-power microwaves, long-range non-lethal weapons and improvised explosive device defeat. The Chief Scientist is the directorate’s primary adviser on scientific and technical matters and the primary authority for the technical content and quality of the science and technology portfolio.

    Dr. Baker was born in Columbus, Ohio. He received his doctorate in nuclear physics from The Ohio State University in 1969 and served four years on active duty in the Air Force as a nuclear research officer. In 1973 he became a civilian scientist at the Air Force Weapons Laboratory where he performed and led high-energy plasma and pulse power research to develop new techniques to simulate nuclear weapon effects. His work in directed energy weapon technology began with high-energy particle beam weapons. Dr. Baker led a joint effort to develop a unique accelerator and used it to demonstrate stable beam propagation in open air. He then created and led the Air Force high-power microwave weapon technology program. As Chief Scientist, he led research and development on high-energy laser weapons technology and the application of advanced optics to space situational awareness. He is a nationally recognized contributor and leader across the entire spectrum of directed energy technologies. He has been president of the Directed Energy Professional Society for the past two years.

    Dr. Baker has written more than 50 publications in nuclear physics, plasma physics, pulsed power and directed energy.



  2. Emmanuel, that was quite the wall of bullshit you slapped here.


  3. Woods isn’t a whistleblower, since that term describes an insider with specific and secret knowledge: all she is is a kook with an opinion. And as is clear by her book, a feeble grasp of science and a loose grip on sanity.


  4. Would anyone like to do a review of Susan Lindauer’s book 📚 “Exteme Prejudice” ??

    Denial of the inside job that 911 was comes from lazy Americans who know they’ll have to get off their duffs and do something if they admit it


  6. I don’t believe the thermite theory. Nevertheless, to pulverize a buildung will for sure take more energy than bringing it down with incendiaries or explosives due to the use of gravity for its final destruction. So, if Steven Jones says that you need so much energy to do so, he means turning the building to dust/plasma or whatever Woods is claiming here.


  7. i see you dont mention the fact that dr judy wood’s student michael zebuhr was murdered..he was helping her with her 911 investigation..he was the nephew of free energy scientist eugene mallove who was also murdered…
