Locals Analyze 9/11 Terrorist Attacks
By Kelly Strodl
With the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11 drawing near, some local groups plan to remember the nearly 3,000 people who died that day with memorials and tributes, including a ceremony at Pier Plaza to honor members of the military, police and firefighters.
Two Huntington Beach men have taken a different approach in observing the anniversary of the attacks.
Aaron Haley and Joe Dunlap edited a film comprised of media footage of the event, interwoven with scientific arguments about the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings, in a look at the scientific evidence behind the plane crashes into the twin towers. More specifically, they explore the destruction of Building 7, the third skyscraper to collapse from what government reports described as structural damage due to internal fires.
