New York City Asks: What Happened to the 1,116 Missing 9/11 Victims?

How did they all vanish into thin air?

More than 11 years after the catastrophic destruction of the World Trade Center, New York City’s government is finally asking: What in the world could have happened to the missing 1,116 victims?

In every building collapse in history, all of the victims’ bodies have been recovered more or less intact. That is because falling buildings crush human bodies. They do not shred them into tiny pieces, or cause them to vanish into thin air.

Yet on September 11th, 2001, the most famous “building collapses” in history somehow caused the bodies of more than 1,000 victims to magically disappear. Not even a shred of skin, a fragment of fingernail, or a shard of bone from any of these bodies was ever recovered, despite meticulous “sifting and bucketing” efforts.

But that’s not the only mystery. Hardly anything was left of the 1,634 WTC occupants who did not completely vanish. Most of the human remains discovered and DNA-identified were in the form of tiny, shredded pieces, not intact bodies.

What happened to the nearly 3,000 human bodies that were annihilated during the ten-second disappearances of the 110-story Towers? Answer: The same thing that happened to the office furniture, filing cabinets, telephones, computers, and other contents of the Towers. Virtually no remains of these objects were ever recovered, either. They – like the human bodies – were somehow transformed into a mixture of tiny shards and sub-100-micron dust, which floated out to sea and slowly settled into the Atlantic. As one of the sifters-and-bucketers remarked, the biggest piece of office furniture recovered from Ground Zero was a tiny fragment of a telephone keypad.

Now, more than 11 years later, the New York City government is finally acknowledging the mystery. In a memo to the 9/11 victims’ families, NYC official Casey Holloway announced that this Monday, April 1st, the city’s Chief Medical Examiner will begin sifting through 60 truckloads of World Trade Center construction debris at Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island. The city says it hopes to find remains of at least some of the 1,116 missing victims.

Unfortunately, the chances of finding remains of more than a few additional victims seem remote. After all, the Twin Towers debris – which amounted to less than 50% of the mass of the Towers (what happened to the rest of the mass?) – was already meticulously sifted and bucketed more than a decade ago. The city’s decision to sift through recent construction debris beginning April 1st bears more than a passing resemblance to George W. Bush’s decision to get down on his hands and knees to look under his desk for the missing Iraqi WMD. Is this some kind of cruel April Fools’ Day joke?

The absence of crushed-but-intact human bodies, office furniture and equipment, and 50% of the Towers’ mass suggests that the Twin Towers did not collapse – they exploded. (See the Youtube film “North Tower Exploding.”) This would explain why tiny human bone fragments were discovered scattered all over the roof of the neighboring Deutsche Bank building in 2006. No simple gravitational collapse, like the one posited by US government’s official NIST Report, could possibly blast human skeletons to smithereens and deposit those smithereens all over the roof of a neighboring building.

Were the Twin Towers, and the thousands of people inside them, blown to bits by explosives? That is what many of the 9/11 victims’ family members believe. Robert McIlvaine, whose son Bobby was murdered in the Twin Towers on 9/11, has stated that roughly half the family members share his suspicion that the Towers were explosively demolished in a false-flag attack. William Rodriguez, the famous 9/11 hero who has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people around the world, is another representative of the 9/11 survivors who asserts that the evidence for “controlled demolition” is an open secret.

Scientist Carl Sagan once pointed out that “absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” But sometimes absence of evidence IS a smoking gun. The absence of intact bodies, office contents, and half of the mass of the Twin Towers is a smoking gun proving that the Towers were explosively demolished.

The missing contents and mass of the Twin Towers are not the only mysterious “absence” connected with 9/11. Other notable “missing evidence” includes:

  • The absence of the US government’s 80-plus videos of the attack on the Pentagon, some of which were confiscated by FBI agents just moments after the attack. Only a few frames have been released, and those frames show an explosion at the Pentagon but no big airliner.
  • The absence of the 100,000 kilos of Boeing 757 airliner that supposedly entered the Pentagon. No record exists of those 100,000 kilos of airliner debris, or the plane’s luggage and passenger remains, ever being removed from any of the three widely-separated damaged areas of the Pentagon.
  • The absence of the 100,000 kilos of Boeing 757 airliner that supposedly buried itself in the soft earth beneath a shallow fifteen-foot-diameter crater in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. There is no evidence of 100,000 kilos of airliner debris, along with passenger remains and luggage, being recovered from beneath the ground at the alleged crash site.
  • The absence of the official airline passenger lists, security video footage, ticket stubs, testimony from airline employees, or any other actual evidence that the 19 young Arabs blamed for 9/11 were even on the planes.
  • The absence of the audio recordings of FAA personnel debriefing each other about what they experienced on 9/11. These recordings were confiscated by an FAA supervisor and shredded into tiny pieces, which were discarded into many widely-separated trash receptacles so they could never be collected and reconstructed.
  • The absence of the indestructible “black boxes” of the planes that hit the Twin Towers. The US government claims these flight data recorders were never recovered, but first responders say they were present when they were found and taken away by FBI agents.
  • The absence of the government’s most important cited evidence: The audio and video recordings of the lengthy torture sessions and scripted false confessions of mentally-retarded “9/11 mastermind” Abu Zubaydah and his fellow “mastermind” Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The CIA admits that it illegally destroyed these recordings, anonymous second-hand reports of which are cited in the 9/11 Commission Report as its only evidence for the 19-hijackers scenario.
  • The absence of any plausible innocent explanation for the BBC’s premature report of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, Larry Silverstein’s confession that he demolished WTC-7, and (of course) the obvious controlled demolition of that building.

In every one of these cases – as in the case of the 1,116 missing victims – the absence of evidence is a smoking gun.

The US government now faces a complete absence of legitimacy.


  1. Hey, The Establishment got away with Oklahoma , so they figured they could get away with 9/11 too. And so far – they have — look for another one – coming your way with Russia being the new ” Huckleberry” . It has to be soon though.

  2. Ian spoke about a newer generation of nuke or direct energy weapon than vaporizes biological matter but will leave the concrete buildings intact. That leave a separate group to manage the demo of the building and another to charge the basement nukes that took care of the debris. So many hands involved. It was the killing of Caesar. It took the hands of each agency and each nation to be involved to pull it off. This is likely to be why Putin won’t release any game changing intel regarding 911. He too still has to protect his black nobility overseers. 911 was the senate taking Caesar in modern day. Planed as a conspiracy of participation by all those that benefit to protect from finger pointing. All had to have blood on their hands to ensure silence.

  3. There were 3 set of nukes used on each tower. First set was to take out the heavy mechanical floors including sub-basement. These were timed to go off near simultaneously as the imaginary “planes” hit. Second nuke was an updated W54 in a waste water shaft below the sub-basement timed to go off with the third nuke to collapse the building and create a crater for it to fall into. Third nuke was a boutique Sandia Labs job – shaped-charge type developed from the ground penetrating low-yield nuclear Bunker Buster technology. Mounted and very heavily braced high up in the towers, with its 22deg trajectory pointing downwards. Some back charge is what blew one of the tops of the tower up before vaporizing it.

  4. “911 confessions under torture” returned almost 1 million hits when I did a search on a well known search engine. Loved your first line James. That was hilarious.


    “Our latest research in 2009 has brought us to a series of remarkable discoveries in the collection of victim stories. What began as an insightful look at the 9/11 Victim Memorial, the original source of the death reports, turned into realization after realization that the entire body of victims – from the airplanes, to the Pentagon, to the World Trade Center – had all been created at the same time by an “identity generating” software program which creates ‘digital’ people with (oft improbable) fictitious names. Anyone armed with a little patience and a discerning attitude should be able to realize that the CNN Victim Memorial is a preposterous list of counterfeit identities. As a result, the full extent of the 9/11 simulation – heroes, victims and villains – is revealed as the absurd, fabricated drama that it is…..”

  6. Do most of the victims seen on the posters have a social security death index identity? (Jim Stone showed that the majority of the victims of the Aurora shooting were made up, they were in the death index before they were “shot” at Aurora.) And considering that Khalezov said dead bodies flew out of the windows, maybe it could be that there were some hundred agents playing witness out on the street started shouting “Oh my God. Did you see that plane?” in order to produce an official narrative.

    And who would not believe it if it is heard out on MSM-Street?

  7. After reading this article on PressTV before bed last nite,i was actually shocked i never knew that many people were turned into micron sized dust.I just assumed you’d found fragments of them all.Even in a War Zone after a bombing run on buildings,you will find corpses you will find the building 99.98% of the time.The only exceptions in our KNOWN history are Nagasaki and Hiroshima where a shadow was Evidence of Absence.The parallels between nuclear bomb and WTC are evident except a shock wave and blindingly bright light.So WTF can dustify a building and the people in it like a nuclear bomb at ground zero(yes i know they changed ground zero to mean something other than a nuclear bomb detonation spot) but confined to just the WTC towers with negligible damage to surrounding buildings and make it look like a controlled demolition,with no blindingly bright light, enormous explosion,was there an EMP ?i wouldnt think so because electronic devices still worked at moment of collapse and during. surely any nuclear detonation wouldve produced an EMP and fried electronics for a good distance around the WTC tower..
    Project for Kount Won(get a hammer and a wet uncooked dog bone put it on concrete and turn it into micron size pieces with a single hammer blow)You cannot post on VT until you successfully do it

    • Nuclear weapons technology had 56 years to develop between Hiroshima and 9/11. Micro-nukes inside the buildings would have shock waves and flashes contained by the buildings. Each micro nuke is a separate micro nuclear explosion. The same applies to EMP.

      Radiation specific cancers of first responders and USGS measurements of tritium levels up to 55X normal prove nuclear demolition.

  8. Brain, James Robertson, let the Zionist lackeys continue to spin and attack the truth. They are desperate and will scurry like the rodents they are when the spotlight is shown are their horrific atrocities.

  9. Well, it’s obvious. There weren’t that many people in the WTC as the propaganda would have you believe.

    WTC-7 was emptied of tenants before 9/11

    Have you’ve seen the jumper fraud discussion at:
    We’ve been conned by what we saw on the TV screens.

    Khalezov did comment on the jumpers in a now defunct forum. Here’s what he wrote in answer to a question on the jumpers:

    Dr. Nofoolin on September 03, 2010, 08:16:28 AM
    Here’s another question: Something that I think about sometimes is…, the people who jumped to their deaths, before the buildings came crumbling down. Could they have seen the atomic bombs, in those upper floors, with timers set to go off?

    Answer from Khalezov:
    I am not quite sure about it. I actually think that these who were ‘jumping’ were dead bodies from morgue, because this is the very Freemasonic modus operandi. I read quite a few testimonies of eye-witnesses who were saying this:

    1) To some of eye witnesses, especially those who were observing upper floors of the Twins via good optical devices (such as tele-lens of photo- and video-cameras) that those who were falling (or ‘jumping’) down seemed to be pushed out by some men from inside; (apparently those poor guys who observed this phenomenon thought it was some type of murder; they could scarcely imagine that this is just a standard method of the Freemasons working with corpses from morgue);

    2) The pattern some bodies were flying in the mid-air before hitting the sidewalks did not match the possible pattern (and behavior) of live beings. It matched the ‘behavior’ of stiff corps from the morgue.

    3) A nurse was giving an interview after 9/11 saying that she was responsible for collecting and arranging those ‘jumpers’ collected from the sidewalks. She was surprised that neither of them (not even a single one) had any of such things as: a wristwatch; a wallet; a document of any type; a credit card; a photo; a single piece of jewelry of any type. Due to this fact not even one of the ‘jumpers’ was identified. Does it sound believable to you that a person would remove all his or her usual belongings from his or her pockets (along with removing necklaces, rings and ear-rings) before jumping to his or her death? I think this is a real hard proof that all ‘jumpers’ were from the morgue. You have to know the Freemasons and their modus operandi a little bit. They always do like this

  10. That’s not all that’s missing. Miles of electrical cables, every single one of more than 43,000 windows, miles of drywall, miles of HVAC, plumbing, thousands of sinks and toilets, desks, 6 acres of marble, 99 elevators, hundreds of computers, laptops, filing cabinets, and everything else inside the building, including those 1,116 people.

    I know most at VT hate to hear it, but explosions can’t account for all of this, while leaving the 14 survivors of stairwell B who survived without a scratch on them after 1,000,000 tons of building fell on their heads. Say what you will about Judy Wood’s admittedly hysterical responses to some of her critics, it appears that she is on the right track, and has a superlative grasp of the evidence. Prof Fetzer has admitted as much.

    • If you include links in your post the post goes to moderation, there is also one word I know will get your post sent to moderation, the Veterans Today staff members might not want me to mention it.

    • That disappoints me. I am listening/watching on Youtube right now a presentation in Seattle in 2009 by Dr Fetzer, where he discusses for over 20 minutes the work of she-who-cannot-be-mentioned.

      At any rate, the important thing is to point out that people, steel, HVAC, toilets, plumbing, marble, glass, concrete, electrical cables, electrical substations, etc do not turn into dust and disappear. And it’s good that finally some mainstream sources are beginning to notice.

  11. Kevin, I would suggest that the absence of evidence lends credence to the theory that the towers were mostly vacant, hollow and unoccupied. I don’t think we need “missing bodies” to prove that the towers were demolished. It is quite obvious. But no bodies… that implies no deaths. No furniture implies unoccupied. There is much, very convincing evidence for the “hollow towers” theory. Here: I appreciate all your great work!

  12. For laughs The Jewish Zionists who did 911 performed an awful stunt at Emma E. Booker Elementary school the day of 911 “kite hit steel plane must” easily changed to show their eerie message “kite plane must hit steel” suggesting a remote controlled plane must hit the twin towers, they’re laughing at the American sheeple. They used little kids at Emma E. Booker Elementary school for their evil prank.

  13. The absence of evidence is what happens when we let the real 911 culprits ( deranged Jewish extremists in the Israeli government and their Jewish Zionist pals) operate the U.S. government and the major media.

    • And of course Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Generals Myers, Shelton, Arnold, Eberhart, the entire Joint Chiefs and Pentagon brass ARE COMPLETELY INNOCENT and wer just fooled by those nasty Zionists and Mossaf agents.

    • It’s obvious to me Bush had nothing to do with 911, I’m not going to provide the evidence and reasons again at Veterans Today. Cheney may have been an Israeli stooge for the 911 event due to his comments overheard by Norm Mineta and if true his overseeing of the war games going on during the day of the evil 911 event. AIPAC had control of the Bush White House.

      911 was an Israeli event, I really doubt Myers and the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff had anything to do with 911, it’s way to risky for the Mossad to invite these people to be part of their evil event because some of them may not have gone along with the deranged plan and could of easily blown the whistle.

      Powerful Jewish Zionists in the Pentagon such as Perle the chairman of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board and Wolfowitz a member of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board may have been involved. At the time of 911 the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board had enormous power.

      Read the best 911 book Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World by Christopher Bollyn you can get a free download of his book at

    • We don’t need Zionist shills like you at Veterans Today. There is a thing called Karma, you don’t want to be on the side of mass murderers.

    • Discrediting something does not disprove it. Something Zionists are renowned for. just sayin’

  14. The absence of evidence is what happens when we let the real 911 culprits ( deranged Jewish extremists in the Israeli government and their Jewish Zionist pals) operate the U.S. government and the major media.

    The Jewish Zionists who did 911 have not been busted for their awful stunt at Emma E. Booker Elementary school the day of 911 “kite hit steel plane must” easily changed to show their eerie message “kite plane must hit steel” suggesting a remote controlled plane must hit the twin towers, they’re laughing at the American sheeple. They used little kids at Emma E. Booker Elementary school for their evil prank.

    • Incredible…Gordon and others have talked about the multiple myeloma cancers that were off the charts for first responders and others subjected to the radioactive asbestos clouds…The molten steel was still boiling Nov 1st…DOD thinks there were micro nukes in each tower..One in the basement and one in the upper floors…Flts 11 and 77 weren’t scheduled to even fly that day-NTSB, FAA records…When Flt 175 was flying into the S Tower it was being tracked over the Harrisburg, Pa area…When Flt 93 was supposedly crashing into the Pa countryside it was being tracked over Urbana, IL….The FBI admitted several yrs ago that the phone call btwn Ted olson and his wife never went never happened…There were no cell phone calls fm 30k feet possible at that time…they never happened either…The whole official story is bs…Who was the General, Chief of Army Intell who sd “no plane flew into the Pentagon”? Amry Spec April Gallop sd the same..Jamie McIntyre and others..Someone needs to scream on network news; “I’m sick of being paid to lie…about 9-11…WMD..Iran..what the Zionists have done in Palestine…Syria…everything..”
