Almost a year to the day after Maximilian Ruppert defended his PhD thesis on the effects of explosions on buildings, he and a room full of colleagues watched in disbelief as each of the Twin Towers crumbled on television before their eyes.
All of them — experts in structures and/or explosives — realized immediately, without a shadow of a doubt, that the buildings had been brought down by controlled demolition.
Now, more than two decades later, Ruppert has broken his silence, speaking publicly about what he knew from day one and admitting that he feels ashamed for having waited so long.
About two weeks ago, on November 4, 2023, Ruppert told his story to Markus Langemann at the Club der Klaren Worte in Munich, Germany. One week later Langemann published a video of the interview. After two days it has amassed more than 100,000 views.
Because the interview has no English subtitles, the Center has republished a portion of it with English subtitles on our X page; this video now has more than 90,000 views. If Langemann grants us permission, we will republish the entire interview with English subtitles.
An unusually credible voice
Ruppert’s background makes him an unusually credible voice when it comes to assessing that the Twin Towers were demolished.
Not only did he earn a doctorate in structural engineering, but prior to that he received demolition training at the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief and then went on to perform several demolitions on his own.
According to Ruppert, he then became, through his PhD work, one of the few people in the world to have created standards for calculating the effects of explosions on structures.
Is Ruppert’s decision to speak out yet another sign that the tide is starting to turn? What more will Ruppert do, and what impact will his speaking out have? Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
