To begin with, if the official story is true, World Trade Center buildings 1, 2, and 7 all made history on 9/11 by being the first and only steel-framed buildings ever to collapse from fire or a plane crash. Steel-framed buildings have burned for up to 28 hours, gutting the entire interiors, but still not collapsed. The
The official story states that fires from burning jet fuel weakened the buildings’ steel beams until they gave way and collapsed. In the past, all over the world steel buildings have burned uncontrollably for over 20 hours, completely decimating every floor and not collapsed. Not once in history had one fallen from fire, until 9/11 when WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 supposedly all did. The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) reports that the temperatures of jet fuel fires do not exceed 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and steel does not begin to melt until 2800 degrees. This means they would have us believe jet fuel fires burning 1000 degrees below steel’s melting point, for only 56 and 103 minutes, on only 8 and 5 floors respectively, was enough to bring down the twin towers. Even giving them the benefit of the doubt, assuming that jet fuel fires did somehow weaken the steel frames enough to bring down the buildings how is it possible that they collapsed at the speed of gravity? The official story is that fire
"In order for a floor to fall, hundreds of joints had to break almost simultaneously on 236 exterior columns and 47 core columns … For a 1,300-foot building, ten seconds is almost free-fall speed. But if each floor produced just a little resistance, so that breaking through each one took a half second, the collapse of all those floors - 80 or 95 of them - would have taken 40 to 47 seconds. Can we really believe that the upper part of the buildings encountered virtually no resistance from the lower parts? The problem would be even worse in relation to the North Tower, at least if Hufschmid is right to say that it fell in eight seconds, which would be exactly free-fall speed ‘How,’ he asks, ‘could the debris crush 100 steel and concrete floors while falling as fast as objects fall through air?’” -David Icke, “Alice in Wonderland and the
News footage, firefighters, ground-zero workers and other witnesses reported molten metal flowing out of windows preceding the collapse, and huge pools collected in the basement area remaining in molten form for over 5 weeks. For fire to produce molten steel, it absolutely must be over 2800 degrees Fahrenheit, and jet fuel burns at 1000 degrees cooler than that. What can account for this? Professor Steven Jones, a physics professor at BYU points out that thermite combustion is a process used in controlled demolitions which produces high
The idea that explosive charges were placed inside the building is supported by literally hundreds of eyewitnesses, seismic recordings, video footage, and Isaac Newton. Firefighters and scores of witnesses on CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS all talked about bombs going off that day, but once Osama bin Laden had been blamed, it was never again addressed by the mainstream media or the Kean Commission. Teresa Veliz, for one, was working on the 47th floor of the
Also seismographic data from a nearby observatory showed two spikes of 2.1 and 2.3 Richter at the instant the collapses began. This too indicates explosive charges, because if the towers simply “pancaked” down, the seismographic spikes would happen when the massive debris hit the ground, not at the start of the collapse. In all, the number of people claiming to see, hear, detect, or suspect bombs in the buildings is staggering. Add to this the visual evidence from footage of the collapse, in which Demolitions experts have pointed out “squibs” characteristic of controlled implosions. Squibs are charges that go off early below the line of detonation as the buildings are coming down. If you play the twin towers’ collapses in slow-motion you will notice dozens of squibs blowing out the sides ahead of time.
