Barry Jennings, a key 9/11 eyewitness who was an emergency coordinator for the New York Housing Authority, passed away last August 2008 at age 53 from undisclosed circumstances. Mr. Jennings was an eyewitness to the devastation of the World Trade center towers on September 11th 2001.

On the morning of 911 Barry Jennings with Michael Hess, (one of Rudy Giuliani’s highest ranking appointed officials, New York city’s corporation counsel), entered the famed Building 7.

It was just after the first attack on the North tower, but before the second plane hit the South Tower, when Barry Jennings escorted Michael Hess to the World Trade Center Tower 7. Mr. Jennings recalls a large number of police officers in the lobby of WTC 7 when they arrived. The two men went up to the 23rd floor, but could not get in, so they went back to the lobby and the police took them up in the freight elevator for a second try. When they arrived on level 23, at the Office of Emergency Management (FEMA),) they found it had been recently deserted, “coffee that was on the desk, smoke was still coming off the coffee, I saw half eaten sandwiches”.
At that point he made some phone calls, and an un-named individual told them to “leave, and leave right away”. Jennings and Hess then proceeded to the stairs, and made it to level 6, when there was an explosion, and the stairwell collapsed from under their feet, Mr. Jennings was actually hanging, and had to climb back up. They made it back up to level 8, where Barry Jennings had a view of the twin towers, both buildings were still standing. This is an important detail, as many debunkers have used Mr. Jennings statements out of context to claim the damage came to WTC 7 from the towers collapsing, not the case according, to Mr. Jennings.

When they made it to the lobby, Mr. Jennings found it destroyed and littered with dead bodies. He said it looked like, “King Kong had came through it and stepped on it, (it was) so destroyed, I didn’t know where I was. So destroyed that they had to take me out through a hole in the wall, that I believe the fire department made to get me out.” Shortly after he made it out, he was seen on several news channels telling his story.

Mr. Jennings was admittedly confused as to why Building 7 had to come down at all, and does not accept the official reason that the noises he heard were from a fuel oil tank, “I know what I heard, I heard explosions”.

Jennings testimony was recorded by Loose Change for the Final Cut version of the extremely popular documentary, but was edited out at the final stage due to Jennings misgivings about losing his job, and endangering his family.

The BBC later interviewed Jennings for a “911 debunking special” and Jennings seemed to retract the testimony given to Loose Change. Subsequently the creators of the film released the original interview to protect their own credibility.

Barry Jennings passed away shortly thereafter and coincidentally just a few days before the long awaited NIST report on Building 7 was released to the public. It is quite possible that Jennings would have exposed the cover story of NIST, and their overall excuse that the 47 story building was the first and only skyscraper felled by fire. He never got that chance.


Yesterday, April 15th 2009 I was contacted by “Loose Change” director, and narrator Dylan Avery who said that he had recently begun investigating the death of Barry Jennings, and had found some new information relating to his death.

It seems that there is a very good possibility that Jennings’ death could have been due to foul play. Though the investigations are on going, initial findings are somewhat alarming. The conclusion is still forthcoming, but I was shocked by what I heard.

It seems that Dylan had hired a private investigator to look into Jennings death which remains shrouded in mystery. His motive was simply to bring some closure to the life of Barry Jennings, and in doing so to honor the memory of this brave American. The Investigator ended up referring the case to Law enforcement before refunding his pay, and told Dylan never to contact him again. Very unusual to say the least. Dylan also paid a visit to the Jennings home. He found it vacant and for sale.

Personally, something is really beginning to stink here. Why would a highly paid PI refuse to continue his investigation? Why did he refer the matter to police? He is not talking. What is he afraid of. Was he warned to cease and desist? If so by whom?
These are some of the new questions revolving around the Jennings case.

In every major cover up from the JFK assassination to Iran Contra, we can see one common thread. The untimely death of eyewitnesses. Barry Jennings was not only an important and most credible eyewitness, but he openly refuted much of the government, and media version of events. He was a liability.

Dylan Avery will appear on DEADLINE LIVE today to tell the story.
The show airs live at 3PM Central with no commercial interruptions.

The interview will be archived for free at



  • The video has been blocked?! Copyright content by loosechange911?!

    Loose change must be in on this… no?

  • Avery is hard core disinformation ..

    Barry Jennings and Michael Hess, were ordered to proceed to the 23rd floor of WTC 7, when all others had evacuated, after receiving warnings the structure was about to collapse.

    Whose death was averted, when the first round of detonation charges fired on time, simultaneous with the destruction of the South Tower at 10:00 am, which however failed to set off the main charges, which would have brought that structure down!

    The North Tower had similarly survived, while firemen testified to the “heavy duty explosions,” which were the failed detonators, that should have set the demo charges in that building down!

    Explosive demolition expert Jon Feal, worked frantically re routing the firing codes, until he set the secondary detonators off at 10:28 am, which transformed the North Tower to dust.

    He worked by helmet light until 5:00 pm, during which time Jennings and Hess were rescued by the FDNY, until he fired the detonators that brought that building down!

    Mr Jennings subsequently declared he could have been mistaken, regarding his earlier statement, that the foyer of WTC 7 was littered with dead bodies.

    • You publish this info about the demolition expert Jon Feal as if it’s absolute fact but the tone is more like a spy novel. Did you work with the man connecting the charges?

      Just because we believe that it was an inside job does not mean we believe it was demolition charges or that you knew the man who set them.

      The fact that you are so sure of everything yet none of your evidence is known about indicates you are the dis-info agent.

      • Classic tactic of a “disinfo agent” …. Accuse everyone of being a disinfo agent. Classic tone of someone in a cult… “If you dont agree with me you are wrong or evil” Dude! Ever consider that I am just an idiot? or (gods forbid) we just disagree? since I know all these people maybe I have a different insight? BTW: this article is several years old now, and we reserve the right to let sleeping dogs alone. thanks

      • what else melts steel and turns it into molten steel? Not an office fire that is a fact! Thermite is the obvious explosive used and it is military patented. Wake up and do some research. The government is lying to you. But I also agree that unless you have a picture of foal doing the dirty work, well it is still circumstantial. But he was there and he was up to something.

    • A lot of new developments in de-bunking these conspiracy theories have come to light since this article was active – I wonder, what are your thoughts now? Not so sure about the discrepancies? Or even stronger in support of the conspiracies going around?

  • Crazy E The Conspiracy Theorist

    You people are nuts.

    There was nothing mysterious about Jennings death other than you loons SAYING it was mysterious, only because you are too stupid to find out the cause of death.

    Jennings was in his mid 50s, not an unheard of age for a black male in the US to pass away.

    P.S. Use a website that doesn’t erase the entire frigging ppost if the CAPTCHA is mistyped; this isn’t 1995.

    • >Typical Amerifat thinking the government loves him.

    • Life expectancy in United States is 70.8 years for blacks. You didn’t look up anything did you?Watch the videos, he’s perfectly healthy. Able to climb around where there are no stairs, and surviving situations that many people wouldn’t. The kicker is the exact day which he died.

    • Here here – I totally agree. Nutty people here to some extent, BUT I bet its not total hog wash…just 99% of it! Not buying anyone has been whacked to avoid testifying as to what WE ALL SAW in the first damn place.

  • Don’t forget WTC 6, which was virtually destroyed by a micro atomic bomb in the basment. The remainder was demolished with conventional explosives. Download

  • “i guess my father really was a hero huh? i will admit,watching him die at 53 the day after my birthdaay in stony brook hospital from leukemia wasn’t the highlight of my life,but at least i know that his death isn’t strange at all,his twin brother,my uncle larry,died a few months b4 i was born in 1989,my father is his identical twin,he was bound to get it,i know the government didn’t do that”
    excerpt from a post on pilots for 911 truth , they seem to think its genuine .
    the pi most likely went to a mate of his in the cops to get some info and his mate would have most likely said they have their right to privacy leave it be so ethically the only thing to do was return the retainer and tell avery its none of his business

    • Why should any of us believe who you say you are? And your comment about your thoughts as to why the PI returned the money was to stupid for words, as that is NOT what PI’s do. And, do you think that Leukemia cannot be caused deliberately in someone? And, why no explanation as to the house being empty and up for sale, and where did the wife go? And why no support from you about what you would know that you dad would have told you about that day, 9/11? You cannot be trusted at this point.

    • We don’t call people mate here buddy… Not your dad… you seem like disinformation source.

      Details if you know, stop if you don’t. Barry Jennings testimony, death and the PI are all indicators of the central role he and Hess play in discovering the truth… interesting how all these reports and sites don’t discuss Hess much, who is still available to question.

      Barry Jennings was clearly allowed up before any buildings fell, and could not get back down. He took elevators up, with police escort, in an intact building…. on way down all had changed.

      The subsequent changes to his story and the PI are remarkable and worth detailed investigation

  • I could not refrain from commenting. Well written! Continued

  • If the PI found out that Mr. Jennings had died
    of natural causes, during his investigation that
    he was being paid to do, then why did he not
    simply inform Mr. Avery of the fact he had Un-
    covered ? Why did he act in such a mysterious
    way, as if there was more to the story and he
    was reluctant to get involved because it was so
    intrigueing and scarred ??? Makes no sense
    at all.

    • It makes total sense if he was warned to leave this topic alone or something bad was going to happen in his life, otherwise, it does not make sense, because a PI simply does not give money back when they have the answer being paid for. Fear is a powerful motivator.

  • I’m amazed that Americans still don’t believe what happened at 9/11. There’s enough evidence to sink a Battleship as the saying goes. I’m waiting for the day when this worldwide conspiracy is out for all to see and the criminals get what’s coming to them. Wake up people otherwise you may be next.

    • Over the years more and more evidence has surfaced, thanks to dedicated volunteers, that the buildings should not have collapsed because of the planes….nano-thermite is not in jet fuel or would have been in the building construction, and subsequent research has shown that it was found in the dust. The steel from the buildings was rushed out of the country so that no research could be done on the steel. There are more questions about the people involved in the building “repairs” by Turner Construction (Bldg. 7, 23rd floor) where Securities & Exchange, CIA, the mayor’s command/crisis center, on 9/11 the alarm system being set on test for 8 hrs, the power shut off at impact of twin towers, steel from building was removed quickly and disappeared so it could not be analyzed, and the security company for the twin towers had been headed by the brother of GWB….
      Other nearby buildings did not collapse, in spite of fires and structural damage,

      • I too get caught up in some of the details that I cannot provide an explanation for. I don’t get caught up in the “evil GW and Gov’t” blew up the WTC’s for military or oil resource gain. There is a difference between this ill, and frankly rather psychotic train of thought, and the few unexplained structure, scientific, biological, and engineering details which we clearly do not know everything about in the first place. I believe some day we will have the answers as to “why” and “why not”, and until then I guess its a media’s hay-day with conspiracy junkies out here. I am not blind, mind you, to the corruption and non-transparencies within the FED’s and related agencies, and this is wrong. So wrong to the extent that the disaster on 9/11 could have been prevented long ago, had this form of Government structure and policy not been adopted by our FATHERS well in advance. I cant say For-Fathers, as I know they did not want or intend for the US to be run by anyone but the people, and for the people.

        Just my 2 cents, there are apparently serious issues at hand with the Government and how its run, maybe it even comes down to murderous issues. But the acts of 9/11 were NOT born here in the US. Its just been a long time since we saw ourselves attacked on American soil. Typically we come to you first…which may be the root of the eventually problem leading to 9/11 in the first place. None the less, it was JUST THAT, a terrorist from a country who’s ideas and beliefs are not on the same playing field as most of us trying to live in this world the best we can. Death to Al-Qaida, and the next generation of its kind.

    • The ignorance and apathy are more than I can tolerate of those who absolutely refuse to look at the evidence with rational thinking and questioning, simply believing whatever the “official” story is.

  • I would like to see an interview with all thepeople that helped rescue Barry Jennings and Michael Hess to get the sequence of events clarified. Barry says the rescue was aborted twice by dustclouds- that is a clear indication that the stairs were exploded before the towers fell and thus that we are dealing with a separate event that has never been properly investigated. But then NIST admits they never looked for explosives. NIST says so up front in their FAQ ” a search would not nesessarily have been conclusive” – after a load of selfcontradicting and absurd attempts to explain why NIST never made a technical search for explosives in the dust like Niels Harrit et al. did. Not looking is the same a covering for those who did. It is as criminal as the crime itself. Maybe that is why the “Bush” instructions to NIST state that the authors can never appear in court of law to testify (reveal who orderd them to write this bullshit) maybe they wrote it so absurd so that we would protest- a cry for help- , but I have not seen many protests along this line.

  • Kind of a shame that this horrible act on the US can actually appear so entertaining when reading all the conspiracy crap surrounding it. Crafted like a novel, a mystery book of some tasteless kind….

    Its not that difficult to surmise just how the entire event of 9/11 COULD have been all staged via pre-planning, and crafted to appear like it was actually a terrorist attack by Al-Qaida when it was actually something far different (GW of course in this case). And the more you read and think about some of the details presented by these “theorists”, the more it gets you questioning what went on. But at the end of the day, since there is not any HARD evidence, it has to come down to, what is more likely. What is the most reasonable explanation surrounding the events? That it was more likely a psycho fuck who hates the US flew our own airplanes that were made on US soil, into the WTC in the Big Apple? Or GW Bush on a crusade to bring US GI’s to Afghanistan and other parts of the world by way of receiving public support/approval, all via blowing up his citizens here at home? I think the first option has to be the choice, whether that basis has HARD facts to support it or not, either. Until I see unmistakable proof, I have to glean this way. I am not saying however that I believe we know all there is to know about the events, but I also believe there are 2 kinds; Ones we should know about, and facts that YOU and I, should NOT! I am not blind to the fact that there may be some which are being hidden by the government W.R.T the event, which we DO have the right to know, especially the victims and victims families. To those I say shame on the UW Government and lack of THAT transparency, but Im sorry I just don’t believe 99% of the ill intent BS going around like the US knew about it before hand, OR INTENTIONALLY disrupted any potential safe guarding tactics. Its all BS and like I said in the beginning, is a shame that WE all get caught up in it via media and find it so entertaining when it “was what it was”. And for the Government to be “is what it is”, maybe not what we would like it to be (free of corruption, and blindness), but isn’t responsible for intentionally inflicting the pain that 9/11 caused so many good people, our own people. I use the word intentionally here, because as I stated above W.R.T covering up certain things, it may come down to some serious negligence as the reason the US “allowed” this to happen. We can debate all night long about the crappy things the FED’s and other so called “good us citizens” have done in our short, short US history, but somewhere one has to draw the line between, good and evil. I don’t believe the Government is evil. I believe Al-Qaida is evil. To the Government; learn from your mistakes and prepare for our new future in this tyrant infested world. To the evils of Al-Qaida; “death by way of Bunta”!! An old joke but a goodie for those who remember Bunta….

  • This report should state ” in every event since JFK to 9/11 the common thread is the Jews. Since this worthless story has no information on Jenning’s death whatsoever other an insinuiation and misleading conclusions, Mr. Jennings is probably alive and well and perhaps living in Jerusalem!

  • So is Barry Jennings really dead??? It says his house was cleared and for sale maybe they made him move and faked his death!! That why no one knows how he died!

    • Given that he was an agent for them, perhaps he simply wasn’t briefed about the official story in time… After which they faked his death and moved his family like you said. Or he could have agreed to never testify again in exchange for asylum.
      And to anyone claiming that a terrorist attack is more likely than government conspiracy. I have read that governments are responsible for the majority of human casualties throughout the world via wars, coups and clandestine operations. If members of government are willing to send thousands of people to their deaths just to protect their land, profits or pride. Why wouldn’t they kill thousands to protect whatever it is that they want? (What would the terrorists get? Also bin laden denied involvement in the attack and some of the hijackers were found in Morocco even though they should have died)

  • Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and 911 …lies told to children

  • I know what happened to him…
