What you are allowed to think and what you do think are two different things, aren't they? That's another way of saying that this forum may be NSFW, if your boss is a Republican. A liberal won't fire you for it, but they'll laugh at you in the break room and you may not get promoted. Unless you're an engineer, of course, in which your obsession with facing reality is not actually a career-disabling disability.

by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth




"Fire Engineering has good reason to believe that the 'official investigation' blessed by FEMA ... is a half-baked farce that may already have been commandeered by political forces whose primary interests, to put it mildly, lie far afield of full disclosure. Respected members of the fire protection engineering community are beginning to raise red flags ... The structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers."
-- Bill Manning, "$elling Out the Investigation," Fire Engineering, January 2002

by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Slide 1:
"Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance." -- Albert Einstein

Slide 2:
Richard Gage, AIA

Slide 3:

Slide 4:

More Ominous Terror Warnings
"At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison." -- George W. Bush, Feb. 13, 2008 (in reference to FISA bill update)
"Bush Spy Bill Stance Called Fear-Mongering"

Slide 5:
"The greatest threat now is 'a 9/11' occurring with a group of terrorists armed not with airline tickets and box cutters, but with a nuclear weapon in the middle of one of our own cities ... It's a very real threat." -- Dick Cheney, April 15, 2007

Slide 6:
"Colorado Republican Tom Tancredo [said] he believes a nuclear terrorist attack on the U.S. could be imminent and that the U.S. needs to hurry up and think of a way to stop it." -- CBS News, August 3, 2007

Slide 7:
"Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey tells NewsMax in an exclusive interview that terrorists could strike the American homeland -- possibly with a weapon of mass destruction -- this summer or early fall." -- NewsMax, August 7, 2007

Slide 8:
"[If al-Qaida does launch an attack inside the U.S.] ... it will be much bigger than 9/11." -- retired CIA veteran Michael Scheuer, NewsMax, July 25, 2007

Slide 9:
July 11, 2007: "Even though there was no specific terror threat, Head of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, proclaimed that he had a "gut feeling" that attacks were imminent!" -- Associated Press, July 11, 2007

Slide 10:
36% Believe the Administration Is Somehow Complicit -- Why?
"A Scripps-Howard poll of 1,010 adults last month found that 36% of Americans consider it "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that government officials either allowed the attacks to be carried out or carried out the attacks themselves. Thirty-six percent adds up to a lot of people. This is not a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream political reality." -- Time Magazine, 9/3/06, Lev Grossman, "Why the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories Won't Go Away"

Slide 11:
2007 Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe the President and Vice President about 9/11
Zogby International, Ahead of the Curve.
Released: September 06, 2007.
Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment.
67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7.

9/11: Re-examining the 3 WTC high-rise "collapses"

Slide 13:
The Website Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Slides 14 & 15:
On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 -- specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7. We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story, and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened, and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7.

Slide 16:

Slide 17:
• Americans were subjected to shocking attacks killing thousands and destroying cultural icons

Slide 18:
• The six years since have given us time to step back and examine the events more objectively:

Slide 19:
• to step out from the shock induced trance
• to evaluate the new evidence
• to re-examine the 3 high-rise collapses objectively

Slide 20:
The Jets, Impacts, Collapses, and the Development of a Myth

Slide 21:
from the DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"
"On September 11, we learned that four passenger planes were hijacked and taken radically off course. Within an hour, two of the planes had flown into the enormous steel towers of the World Trade Center, creating fires and eventually toppling them. Dazed by the news, the American public soon believed the fires in the towers had burned so hot they caused the steel frames of the buildings to give way. A myth developed, fed by official sources through the media to a bewildered audience. Elements of the myth: the impact of the airplanes, gallons of burning jet fuel, steel melting, the buildings failing and suddenly imploding. In a mere 10 seconds, 110 stories hurtled earthward pulverizing into dust. Right from the start, on the street itself, the official story was born."
"Come out of nowhere, and just 'ream," right into the side of the tower, exploding through the other side. And then I witnessed both towers collapse. The first, and then the second, mostly due to structural failure because the fire was just too intense."
"The myth bled into the FEMA report and was echoed by the experts."
"It was the combination of the impact load doing great damage to the building, followed by the fire that caused collapse." -- W. Gene Corley, Ph.D., American Society of Civil Engineers

Slide 22:
The Scientific Method
Formulate Question → Perform Research & Make Observations → Construct Hypothesis & Make Predictions → Test With Experiments → Analyze Results, Draw Conclusions → Hypothesis is Corroborated → Report Results (Transparency, Repeatability)
Formulate Question → Perform Research & Make Observations → Construct Hypothesis & Make Predictions → Test With Experiments → Analyze Results, Draw Conclusions → Hypothesis is Not Corroborated → Try Again!
Let's Apply it:
"Fire-induced Collapse Hypothesis" vs. "Controlled Demolition Hypothesis"

Slide 23:
• Gather Data!

Slide 24:
What Demolished the 3 WTC High-rises?

Slide 25:
Forces that Destroy Buildings
• Explosion
• Earthquake-Collapse (Concrete) -- Topple
Each has a very different and identifiable set of characteristics

Slide 26:
Fire Induced Collapses are Asymmetrical ... Yet No Steel-Framed High-Rise Has Ever Collapsed
Oct., 2004 -- Caracas, Venezuela. 56-story building burned for 17 hours over 26 floors
Fire Destruction:
• An organic process
• Burns out an area in roughly 20 minutes, then seeks new combustibles
• Causes some buildings to "fall over"

Slide 27:
20 Year Fire Protection Engineer Jonathan Barnett / FEMA: "Until [9/11] I have not seen a Protected Steel Structure Collapse in a Fire."

Slide 28:
The way in which steel frame buildings behave in fires depends on their construction. In this test done by British Steel in 1995, a large amount of typical office furniture was burned to see what happened to the heavy steel beams that supported the ceiling.
"When steel is bare, when it heats up, it gets weaker. It's not that it melts in a fire. In fact the fires, normal fires, are not hot enough to melt steel. Even if you were, for example, to use an unusual fuel, like kerosene, you cannot achieve temperatures hot enough to melt steel. But what happens is it starts to lose its strength. And as it loses its strength, it starts to sag. It becomes softer and sags, and can no longer support the load." -- Professor Jonathan Barnett, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
This was the largest test of its time __, and it showed how unprotected steel can be distorted even by a normal office fire. But as is usual in steel buildings, the structural beams only slowly and progressively warped and sagged. There was no chance of a sudden collapse.
"In over 20 years I have not seen -- until recently -- a protected steel structure that has collapsed in a fire." -- Professor Jonathan Barnett, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
So what was the cause of the devastating explosive failure that happened to the World Trade Center?

Slide 29:
These Buildings Fell Over / Following path of least resistance
These Buildings Collapsed / Recognizable as buildings (Concrete)

Slide 30:
These Buildings Exploded
• Sounds of explosions
• Flashes of light
• Thick, billowing smoke
o pyroclastic clouds of pulverized concrete

Slide 31:
A Typical Controlled Demolition (Fire doesn't do this to Buildings)

Slide 32:

Slide 33:
But Things Can Go Wrong With Controlled Demolition

Slide 34:
This building is about to be destroyed in what is called a controlled demolition. Buildings do not do this spontaneously.
Here is another example of a controlled demolition. The initial charges are spaced about one second apart and you can see that each section begins falling separately.
Successful demolitions require that all structural support columns collapse at virtually the same time.
If they don't, or something else goes wrong, the result will look something like this.

Slide 35:
Typical Controlled Demolition
Characteristic Features:

Slide 36:
1. Sudden Onset of Destruction at Base of Structure

Slide 37:
2. Straight-Down, Symmetrical Collapse Into Footprint

Slide 38:

Slide 45:
10. Chemical Evidence of Cutter Charges

Slide 46:

Slide 47:
World Trade Center Building 7

Slide 48:
• 47 stories tall
• Would be the tallest building in 33 states
• Not hit by an airplane!

Slide 49:
Yet it was the 3rd WTC high-rise to collapse on 9/11 (110 yards from the North Tower)

Slide 50:
WTC7: Built over an existing "Con Ed" Electrical Substation: Any failure in these large trusses and supports would ensure an asymmetrical collapse.

Slide 51:
WTC 7: Hit by Debris from North Tower, Collapses 7 hours later at 5:20 p.m.

Slide 52:
WTC 7 -- Fire Progression at East (Where Collapse Began)
East Side, 2:30 p.m. + / -
North Side, 3:00 p.m. + / -
12th floor: (spread to East end)
7th floor: (never burned East of bldg. center)

Slide 53:
WTC 7 -- Fire Progression to East End (12th & 13th -- Securities & Exchange Commission)

Slide 54:
WTC Building 7 -- The Explosive Demolition Hypothesis

Slide 55:
1. Sudden Onset of Destruction at BASE of Structure

Slide 56:
Emergency Worker: Eyewitness to Sudden Onset -- "... a sound of a clap of thunder ... shockwave ripping through the building ... windows busting out ..."

Slide 57:

Slide 58:
Same as Slide 57.

Slide 59:
2. Straight-Down, Symmetrical Collapse Into Bldg. Footprint

Slide 60:
CBS News with Dan Rather -- WTC 7 Collapse at 5:21 p.m. -- "... it's reminiscent of those pictures we've all seen too much on television where a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down."

Slide 61:
"What you are seeing are high shots. Now, here we're going to show you a videotape of the collapse itself. Now, we go to videotape of the collapse of this building. Amazing! Incredible! Pick your word. For the third time today, reminiscent of those pictures we've all seen too much on television where a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down."

Slide 62:
Same as Slide 61.

Slide 63:
WTC 7 -- A Straight-Down Symmetrical Collapse
Network TV, From the North Side of Bldg 7 on West Street

Slide 64:

Slide 65:
Side-by-Side Comparison of WTC 7 to an Acknowledged Controlled Demolition

Slide 66:

Slide 67:
"... and nearly into its own footprint. The Center of the Pile is in the Center of the Building."

Slide 68:
3. DEMOLITION WAVES Remove Column Support

Slide 69:
23 Core Columns Give way at once
Can fire cause the core columns to fail within 1/10th of a second of each other (after Column 79) such that the building would collapse straight down, rapidly and symmetrically?
WTC Bldg. 7

Slide 70:
WTC 7: East Penthouse Collapses First
"The working hypothesis is based on an initial local failure caused by normal building fires, not fires from leaking pressurized fuel lines or fuel from day tanks." -- NIST 12/18/07
Figure L-29. Plan view of regions for collapse initiation.

Slide 71:
4. Free-Fall Speed Through Path of Greatest Resistance

Slide 72:
WTC 7 Acceleration -- Unresisted!
• Acceleration of WTC 7 = 10 Meters / sec sq.
• Acceleration in a vacuum is 9.8 M / sec sq.

Slide 73:
"We can measure the downward acceleration of Building 7 by video frame analysis. I used a magnifying glass to place markers on the corner of the building in each frame.
From this we can get a data table and various graphs.
The slope of this graph indicates acceleration which is shown here to be about -10.279 + or - .6. Free-fall in a vacuum is -9.8 in these units. That falls within the margin of error of this measurement. In other words, the rate of fall of Building 7 in the first few seconds is indistinguishable from free-fall in a vacuum."

Slide 74:
WTC 7 Acceleration -- Nearly FREE-FALL
• The data is plotted from the actual building fall.
• The curve (theoretical free-fall at constant acceleration) is then overlaid on top of the data.
• The data neatly fits the curve.
• Therefore, the steel columns gave almost no resistance to the falling building.
• Were they "removed" by fire? Or by explosives?

Slide 75:
5. Total Dismemberment of Steel Structure

Slide 76:
A 47-Story Skyscraper Compressed to 4 Stories, Indicating total dismemberment of the steel skeleton.

Minimal Damage to Adjacent Post Office and Verizon Office Bldg. Requires Precise Control of Detonation Sequence

Slide 80:
7. Sounds of Explosions

Slide 81:
Craig Bartmer, NYPD, Eyewitness to Explosions

Slide 82:
"And the whole time you're hearing 'thum, thum, thum, thum'. So I think I know an explosion when I hear it, you know. I was real close to Building 7 when it fell down, and ran away from that. It sucked! That's one of the things I live with all of the time. And I don't know, but that didn't sound like just a building falling down to me when I was running away from it. There's a lot of eyewitness testimony down there hearing explosions. I didn't see any reason for that building to fall down the way it did, and a lot of guys should be saying the same thing."

Slide 83:
Craig Bartmer, NYPD, "Thume! Thume! Thume! ... Think I know an explosion when I hear it ..."
Craig Bartner, Former NYPD, First Responder, Ground Zero Worker

Slide 84:
Eyewitness to WTC 7 Explosion
Kevin McPadden -- Former Air Force Special Operations for Search and Rescue

Slide 85:
"He came back over with his hand over the radio and what sounded like a countdown. And at the last few seconds, he took his hand off, and you heard, '3, 2, 1.' And he was just saying, 'Just run for your life! Run for your life.' And then it was another two, three seconds you heard explosions, like BA-BOOM! And it's like a distinct sound. It's not like compression, like BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM. Like floors that were dropping and collapsing. This was BA-BOOM! And you felt a rumble in the ground like almost you wanted to grab onto something. To me, I knew that was an explosion. There was no doubt in my mind."

Slide 86:

Slide 91:
9. Pools of Molten Iron

Slide 92:
Any Evidence of Molten Metal?
Note: This section applies to the Twin Towers as well as WTC 7.

Slide 93:
Pouring Molten Metal from WTC 2
There is also video and photo evidence of what appears to be a Thermite reaction taking place in the South Tower. Just moments before it collapses, a whitish-yellow molten metal can be seen pouring out of the damaged floors.

Slide 94:

Slide 95:
Was it Molten Aluminum from an Airplane?
• Molten aluminum is silvery, not glowing yellow or orange. It doesn't "luminesce" in daylight as this experiment shows.

Slides 96 & 97:
WTC Structural Engineer: Eyewitnesses Molten Metal
• "As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running." -- Leslie Robertson, structural engineer responsible for the design of the WTC, at the National Conference of Structural Engineers on October 5, 2001, James M. Williams, "WTC A STRUCTURAL SUCCESS," SEAUNEWS, The Newsletter of the Structural Engineers Association of Utah, Volume VI -- Issue II, October 2001, p.3.

Slide 98:
Molten Metal on the Street

Slide 99:
What do the First Responders and Demolition Contractors say about molten metal?

Slide 100:
• "... saw pools of 'literally molten steel' at the World Trade Center." -- Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction of Flushing, Lead Contractor for Site Clean-up.

Slide 101:
• "I talked to many contractors, and they said they actually saw molten metal. Beams had just totally had been melted because of the heat." -- Chaplain Herb Trimpe

Slide 102:
O'Toole remembers seeing a crane lift a steel beam vertically from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero.
• "It was dripping from the molten steel." -- Joe O'Toole, a Bronx firefighter

Slide 103:
• "...descended deep below street level to areas where underground fires still burned and steel flowed in molten streams." -- Reporter with rare access to the debris at ground zero.

Slide 104:
• "Fires are still actively burning, and the smoke is very intense ... In some pockets now being uncovered, they are finding molten steel." -- Alison Geyh, Ph.D.

Slide 105:
• "Feeling the heat, seeing the molten steel, the layers upon layers of ash, like lava, it reminded me of Mt. St. Helens." -- Burger, A veteran of disasters from the Mississippi floods and Mt. St. Helens.

Slide 106:
• "Shards of steel lay upon shards of steel, shifting and unstable, uncovering red hot metal beams excavated from deep beneath layers of sub-floors." -- Burger, A veteran of disasters from the Mississippi floods and Mt. St. Helens.

Slide 107:
• "They showed us many fascinating slides," he continued, "ranging from molten metal which was still red hot weeks after the event ..." -- Dr. Keith Eaton

Slide 108:
• "There was still molten steel at the heart of the towers' remains. Firemen sprayed water to cool the debris down, but the heat remained intense enough at the surface to melt their boots." -- Guy Lounsbury of New York Air National Guard's 109th Air Wing

Slide 109:
FDNY Firefighters Witness Molten Metal
• "... molten steel running down the channel rails -- like lava from a volcano."

Slide 110:
"And you'd get down below and you'd see molten steel -- molten steel running down the channel rails. Like you're in a foundry. Like lava from a volcano."

Slide 111:
• "For about two and a half months after the attacks, NYDS played a major role in debris removal -- everything from molten steel beams to human remains ..." -- NY Department of Sanitation spokeswoman

Slide 112:
• "The streams of molten metal that leaked from the hot cores and flowed down broken walls inside the foundation hole." -- William Langewiesche, American author and journalist

Slide 113:
• "Seeing in the darkness a distant, pinkish glow, molten metal dripping from a beam -- but found no signs of life." -- Lee Turner, Boone County Firefighter

Slide 114:
• "In the first few weeks, sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel." -- Fuchek

Slide 115:
• "I saw melting of girders in World Trade Center." -- Abolhassan Astaneh-Asi, the first structural engineer given access to the WTC steel at Fresh Kills Landfill, National Science Foundation Grant

Slide 116:
• "... numerous fires were still burning and smoldering. Underground it was still so hot that molten metal dripped down the sides of the wall from Building 6." -- 9/11 Commission Report

Slide 117:
• "Going below, it was smoky and really hot ... The debris past the columns was red-hot, molten, running." -- Richard Garlock, Structural Engineer / LERA

Slide 118:
Massive Heat Source Bends Steel Columns With no Buckling

Slide 119:
from the DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"
"The steel in dragon-like lengths and contortions spoke for itself.
Bent, deformed, without cracks."
"I find it hard to believe that it actually bent, because of the size of it and how there's no cracks in the iron. It bent without almost a single crack in it.
It takes thousands of degrees to bend steel like this."
"Typically you'd have buckling and tearing on the tension side, but there's no buckling at all. There's no buckling at all."
"And architects, engineers, people who work with steel -- welders -- have just never seen the level of destruction and the level of deformation of this material in their lives." -- Bart Voorsanger, Architect
"Explosives also deform steel. As they fire, gas pushes outward.
The force of the gas can easily bend a large steel column."

Slide 120:
Reporting to Jim McKay, Post-Gazette Staff Writer, on September 11, 2002:
• "... a fire truck 10 feet below the ground that was still burning two weeks after the Tower collapsed, its metal so hot that it looked like a vat of molten steel." -- Vance Deisingnore, OSHA Officer at WTC

Slide 121:
• Six weeks after 9/11, "There are pieces of steel being pulled out [from as far as six stories underground] that are still cherry red." -- Firemen and hazardous materials experts

Slide 122:
Molten Metal "Meteorites"

Slide 123:
From the DVD: "Relics in the Rubble"
"One of the more unusual artifacts to emerge from the rubble is this rock-like object that has come to be known as the meteorite."
"There's this fused element of molten steel, and concrete, and all of these things, all fused into one single element."
"And almost like a chunk of lava from Kilauea or Iceland where they're very sharp but breakable shards on the end here."

Slide 124:
Cooled Molten Metal "Meteorites" Found at WTC: Very High Iron Content
9/11 artifacts architect, Bart Voorsanger, discovers numerous multi-ton previously molten "meteorites" in the WTC rubble.
(Aluminum does not rust!)

Hot spots in WTC rubble: Corroborates reports of deep-down molten metal.
(USGS aerial photo 9-16-01)
Surface Temperatures:
• C-D is WTC1, ~ 1160 °F
• A-B is WTC7, ~ 1340 °F
• F-G is WTC2, ~ 1377 °F
The official reports by NIST, FEMA and the 9/11 Commission, however, omit any mention of the large quantities of molten metal observed in the basement areas of the twin towers and WTC 7.

Slide 126:
Hot spots in WTC rubble: Corroborates reports of deep-down molten metal.
WTC Site, Sept. 18, 2001

Slide 127:
Molten metal beneath both Towers and WTC 7.
Hydrocarbons (i.e., jet fuel) burning in open air cannot produce temperatures capable of melting steel. So what can?

Slide 128:

Slide 129:
"Mr. Bryan:
I didn't personally see molten steel at the World Trade Center site. It was reported to me by contractors we had been working with. Molten steel was encountered primarily during excavation of debris around the South Tower when large hydraulic excavators were digging trenches 2 to 4 meters deep into the compacted/burning debris pile. There are both video tape and still photos of the molten steel being 'dipped' out by the buckets of excavators. I'm not sure where you can get a copy. Sorry I cannot provide personal confirmation.
Mark Loizeaux, President, CONTROLLED DEMOLITION, INC., 2737 Merryman's Mill Road, Phoenix, Maryland USA 21131"

Slide 130:
And Yet NIST Flatly Denies the Existence of Molten Metal
John Gross, Lead Engineer of the NIST Report, answers questions about molten Metal:
"I know of absolutely nobody -- no eyewitnesses -- nobody who has produced it."
At a lecture of Univ. of Texas / Austin on the collapse of the Twin Towers.

Slide 131:
Matt Dayton of Project for a new American Citizen: "I'm curious about the pool of molten steel that was found in the bottom of the towers."
[John Gross] "I am too. Please tell me about it. Have you seen it?"
[Matt Dayton] "Well, not personally, but eyewitnesses there found huge pools of molten steel beneath the towers. And some scientists don't think that the collapse of the building could have melted all that steel. And a physics professor analyzed some of the steel, Steven Jones, and he found evidence of thermate residue, which would explain how the buildings collapsed by means of pre-planted explosives. So have you analyzed the steel for us?"
[John Gross] First of all, let's go back to your basic premise that there was a pool of molten steel. I know of absolutely nobody, and no eyewitness who has said so, and nobody who has produced it."
FDNY Firefighters Witness Molten Metal -- "You'd get down below and you'd see molten steel -- molten steel running down the channel rails. Like you're in a foundry. Like lava from a volcano."
"Out, still on the rubble, it's still, I believe, 1,100°. The guys' boots just melt within a few hours."
"It's unbelievable, and this is almost six weeks later. And as we get closer to the center of this, it gets hotter and hotter. It's probably 1,500 degrees. We've had some small windows into what we thought was the core at some point, and it looked like an oven. It was just roaring inside. And it was just a bright, bright, reddish-orange color."
[John Gross] I know of absolutely nobody, and no eyewitness who has said so, and nobody who has produced it. Now, I was on the site. I was on the steel yards. So, I can't, I don't know that that's so. Steel melts at about 2,600 °F. I think it's probably pretty difficult to get that kind of temperature in a fire. So, I don't know the basis. I can't address your question if I don't know the basis."
[Matt Dayton] "Well, thermal images show those sorts of temperatures in the basement."
[John Gross] "Would you send them to me?"
[Matt Dayton] "Okay, I would like to echo a frequently asked question on the NIST.com website regarding World Trade Center 7 in that the report on World Trade Center 7's ___ after collapse has not been released by NIST. And the fact that the tower collapsed in approximately 6.6 seconds, and free-fall in a vacuum would be approximately 6 seconds, is a controlled demolition hypothesis being examined for World Trade Center 7?"
[John Gross] "We are looking at it. There's actually a very good write-up recently from Controlled Demolition Expert which you probably ought to read. We haven't finished the investigation yet, so I'm not at liberty to talk about any intermediate finding. We were charged with finding out the cause of the collapse. And we found what happened. I think we've scientifically demonstrated what was required to initiate the collapse. Once the collapse initiated, the video evidence is rather clear. It was not stopped by the floors below, so there was no calculation that we did to demonstrate that, what is clear from the videos."
[John Gross] "We were charged with finding out the cause of the collapse. And we found what happened. I think we've scientifically demonstrated what was required to initiate the collapse. Once the collapse initiated, the video evidence is rather clear. It was not stopped by the floors below, so there was no calculation that we did to demonstrate that, what is clear from the videos."
You're right John! It is clear from the video evidence.

NIST's Scientific Method:
NIST: If the Data doesn't support the FIRE hypothesis: Deny that it exists!

Slide 133:
WTC Basement Fires Defeat Water! Fires much worse after collapse.
• The last fire was not extinguished until Dec. 19, 2001 -- over 3 months after 9/11.

From the DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"
"Thermite: Fe²0³ + 2Al
An incendiary used by the military, Thermite is a compound of Iron Oxide and Aluminum which, when ignited, sustains an extreme heat reaction creating molten iron. In just two seconds, Thermite can reach temperatures of over 4,500 °F: quite enough to liquify steel. We know that open air fires cannot burn hot enough to melt steel. But metal had melted at the base of the Towers.
Appendix C of the FEMA report describes sulfur residues on the World Trade Center steel. The New York Times called this 'the deepest mystery of all.' Sulfur slightly lowers the melting point of iron, and iron oxide and iron sulfide had formed on the surface of the structural steel. Sulfur used with Thermite is called Thermate, producing even faster results.
Thermite: Fe²0³ + 2Al + Sulfur → lowered melting point and accelerated results."

The Signature of Thermite
"Thermite reaction compounds used to ignite a fire ...
• produce a characteristic burn pattern:
o white ash
o white-yellow hot liquid metal
o intense white reaction zone seen

Slide 144:
• and leave behind unique chemical evidence:
o common elements such as iron, aluminum, copper, calcium, silicon
o unusual elements such as fluorine and manganese left behind in the residue

Slide 146:
Molten Metal Sample from WTC
• 40-lb chunk of previously molten metal from a larger "meteorite" from the South Tower
• Small chip sent to physicist Steven Jones for analysis

Slide 147:
The previously molten metal is predominately iron. So he rules out molten aluminum from jet planes.
Electron microphone data (BYU, June 2006)

Slide 148:
The molten metal has very little Chromium, yet abundant Manganese. So he rules out molten structural steel as a major component.
Electron microphone data (BYU, June 2006)

Slide 149:
The previously molten metal has small amounts of Aluminum (Al), Sulfur (S), and Potassium (K).
Electron microphone data (BYU, June 2006)

Slide 150:
The previously molten metal has Manganese and Fluorine in abundance.
Electron microphone data (BYU, June 2006)

Slide 151:
Manganese and Fluorine?
The Manganese is from the Potassium Permanganate (KMn04), commonly used as an oxidizer in thermite.
Fluorine is used in Sol-Gel type thermite charges.
Hence, K, Mn and F are often present in the residue, and are part of a "thermite fingerprint."

Slide 152:
2nd Sample Source: 9/11 Monument.

Slide 153:
The previously molten metal samples clinging to WTC steel, from the monument.
• X-ray fluorescence analysis of samples (above) show Fe, S, K, Mn (abundant), Ca.

Gel-explosives: "Super-thermite".
Tiny aluminum particles in iron oxide, in a sol-gel:
"High energy density and extremely powerful."
"... can be cast to shape."
-- Livermore Nat'l Lab 2000

Slide 155:
1999: "Invention offers a thermite based apparatus for cutting target material [steel] of substantial thickness ... linear ... cutting action ..."
This thermite-based method will allow operators to penetrate thicker materials in time frames similar to explosive shape charges without the safety concerns and security risks associated with explosives. In addition, the sustained duration of a thermite jet will more effectively handle discontinuities and interfaces that normally disrupt and dissipate explosively driven shape charge jets ... the sustained jet of a thermite charge offers improved performance with limited or substantially no preconditioning ... the projected thermite charge particle stream anticipated timing for material penetration is typically on the order of hundreds of milliseconds.

• "One molecule was present at levels that dwarfed all others ... 1,3-diphenylpropane."

Slide 166:
• "We've never observed it in any other sampling we've ever done." -- Erik Swartz, EPA
Swartz speculated that it might possibly be from computers, but there have been many computers burned in office fires, and no 1,3 DPP has ever been found!

Slide 167:
Evidence of Thermite in the WTC Dust?
Iron-aluminum-rich Microspheres

Slide 168:
Iron-rich Micro Spherules found in WTC Dust by Steven Jones, Ph.D., Physicist

Slide 169:
From WTC Dust found in J. MacKinlay apartment across the street from WTC 2
Prof. Jones collected iron-rich particles in the dust by pulling a magnet across the outside of a plastic bag containing the dust. He found an abundance of spherical particles in this iron-rich component, some of which were up to about 1.5 mm. (about 1/16") in diameter -- quite visible.

Slide 170:
• The iron-rich component of the WTC dust sample was analyzed in some detail by scanning electron miscroscopy (SEM) and x-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (X-EDS).
• These magnetic particles were, as one might expect, rich in iron -- an estimated 0.1% of the dust.
• The presence of metallic microspheres implies that these metals were once molten, so that surface tension pulled the droplets into a roughly spherical shape.
• Then the molten droplets solidified in air, preserving the information that they were once molten in the spherical shape, as well as chemical information.
Jones estimates an overall quantity of ten tons of molten iron from thermite based on the quantity and chemical composition of the spheres seen, and the amount of dust produced during the destruction of these buildings.

Slide 171:
Compare the Iron-Rich Micro Spherules found in WTC Dust to a Known Thermite Experiment

Microspheres Carry "Signature" of Thermite
WTC Iron microspheres contain almost the same chemical makeup in percentages as the controlled experiment: Iron, Aluminum, Manganese, etc.
Microspheres from Parulis Thermite Experiment -- X-EDS signature: Iron, Aluminum, Manganese, etc.

Slide 173:
Corroboration by USGS -- EPA
Others have reported the presence of iron-rich particles in the dust:
"The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun a reassessment of the presence of World Trade Center (WTC) dust in residences, public buildings, and office spaces in New York City, New York. Meeker and others (2005a) have identified slag wool (a man-made vitreous fiber, MMVF), gypsum (CaSO4_2H20), or anhydrite (CaSO4), and phases compatible with concrete as signature components of the WTC dust. In addition to these phases, other MMVF, metal or metal oxides, mineral material, and asbestos are present in trace to minor amounts."

Slide 174:
Corroboration by R.J. Lee Company
WTC Dust Signature Report, Deutsche Bank, December, 2003
The R.J. Lee report concludes:
"Various metals (most notably iron and lead) were melted during the WTC Event, producing spherical metallic particles. Exposure of phases to high heat results in the formation of spherical particles due to surface tension ..."

Slide 175:
Corrosion from "Atomized" Thermite?
• Evidence of high temperature corrosion is evident on about 1,000 cars near the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.
• This corrosion occurred on the car tops, yet the paint was usually intact below, consistent with a corrosive cloud "settling".

Slide 176:
Manganese was also found by the Lower Manhattan Development Corp, and the City's Chief Medical Examiner:
" ... large amounts of 9/11 toxins, asbestos, dioxin, lead, silica, quartz, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, chromium and manganese have been found in the Deutsche Bank Building across the street from WTC 2."

Slide 177:
Dr. Jones' Results
Given the mix of trace metals present in anomalously high concentrations in the WTC dust, such as zinc, copper and manganese, and the formation of iron-aluminum-rich spherules ... it is clear that significant aluminothermic reactions occurred, with likely ingredients to include powders of aluminum, iron oxide, copper oxide, zinc nitrate, and potassium permanganate.

Slide 178:
Unignited Thermite also found in the WTC Dust?

Slide 179:
Numerous "Red Chips" Found in WTC dust (in all 4 WTC dust samples by Steven Jones, Ph.D.)
• Bi-layered (Red/Gray)
• Attracted by magnet
• Chemical composition of Thermite

• Above: "Transmission electron micrograph of a sol-gel incorporating Fe203 / Al (thermite) nanocomposites illustrates the extremely fine mixing of ultrafine aluminum and iron oxide."
• Nano-thermite is explosive!

Slide 183:
Super Thermites Are Explosive. Los Alamos National Lab is a Leading Research Lab
Summary: Metal fluorocarbon mixtures have been recognized since World War II as highly reactive pyrotechnics. Their use as explosives, however, has, until recently, been limited due to the inherently low reaction rates of the metal particles with the fluorocarbon material. Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have discovered that these slow reaction rates can be greatly enhanced by substituting nano-sized aluminum for the conventional micron-sized metal powders, enabling various applications heretofore not possible with metal fluorocarbon mixtures.

FEMA Discusses Mysterious Sulfidation and Oxidation Seen on Some WTC7 Steel. No mention in NIST report!!!
• "Evidence of a severe high temperature corrosion attack on the steel, including rapid oxidation and sulfidation with subsequent intergranular melting, was readily visible in the near-surface microstructure."

Slide 207:
• "A liquid eutectic mixture containing primarily iron, oxygen, and sulfur formed during this hot corrosion attack on the steel.... No clear explanation for the source of the sulfur has been identified."

Slide 208:
• "Perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation." -- NY Times. Yet ignored by NIST.
o Sulfur is used with thermite to cut fast through steel!

Upper analysis shows region containing iron and iron oxide and no sulfur (iron sulfide).
The lower analysis shows a different region with the presence of sulfur (iron sulfide), indicating a possible demolition (thermite) charge designed to melt steel.

Slide 209:
WTC Steel -- Forensic Metallurgy
• The results of the examination are striking. They reveal a phenomenon never before observed in building fires: eutectic reactions, which caused "intergranular melting capable of turning a solid steel girder into Swiss cheese."

FEMA report [May 2002] authors conclude:
• "The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time."

• " ... the best hypothesis [fire + random damage -- then complete collapse] has only a low probability of occurrence."

Slide 221:

Slide 222:
FEMA Casts Doubt on Their Own "Fire-Collapse" Theory and Orders Destruction of the Evidence
• "Further research, investigation, and analyses are needed to resolve this issue."

Slide 223:
• Unfortunately for investigators hoping to resolve this issue, much of the evidence has already been destroyed -- by FEMA!

Slide 224:
Forensic Fire Protection Engineer, Jonathan Barnett / FEMA: "Unable to [Properly Examine the Evidence]."

Slide 225:
"When you have a structural failure, you carefully go through the debris field looking at each item, photographing every beam as it collapsed, and every column where it is in the ground. And you pick them up very carefully, and you look at each element. We were unable to do that in the case of Tower 7."

Slide 226:
FEMA's Destruction of Evidence
Very little effort was made to preserve the evidence of the unprecedented and unexplained collapses of skyscrapers WTC 1, WTC 2, and Building 7 in lower Manhattan -- easily the three largest and least understood structural failures in World history. Indeed, the evidence was destroyed with remarkable speed and efficiency. The destruction of evidence at a crime scene is illegal.

Slide 227:
Up to 800 trucks per day removed all but about 250 pieces of steel from the crime scene, effectively scrubbing it.

Slide 228:
Building-fire Expert and Editor-in-chief of 125-year-old "Fire Engineering Magazine" Demands Stop to "Destruction of Evidence"
• "... Structural steel from the World Trade Center has been, and continues to be. cut up and sold for scrap. Crucial evidence that could answer many questions ... is on the slow boat to China, perhaps never to be seen again in America until you buy your next car."

Slide 229:
• "Such destruction of evidence shows the astounding ignorance of government officials to the value of a thorough, scientific investigation ... I have combed through our national standard for fire investigation, NFPA 921, but nowhere in it does one find an exemption allowing the destruction of evidence for buildings over 10 stories tall. To treat the September 11 incident any differently would be the height of stupidity and ignorance."

Slide 230:
• "The destruction and removal of evidence must stop immediately."
-- Editorial by Bill Manning, Fire Engineering

Slide 231:
• "The federal government must scrap the current setup, and commission a fully resourced blue ribbon panel to conduct a clean and thorough investigation of the fire and collapse, leaving no stones unturned."

Slide 232:
NIST's Scientific Method:
FEMA: If the evidence (steel) contradicts the FIRE hypothesis: Destroy it!

Slide 233:
9-11 Commission Report Completely Ignores WTC 7
• The 9-11 Commission claims to give "the fullest possible account of the events surrounding 9/11."

Slide 234:
• However, without explanation, the 9-11 Commission Report completely ignores the catastrophic collapse of WTC 7.

Slide 235:
Is this one of the reasons that former 9/11 Commissioner, Senator Max Cleland, resigned from the Commission stating:
• "It is a national scandal."
• "This investigation is now compromised."

Slide 236:
9/11 Commission's Scientific Method:
9/11 Commission: If the Question can't be answered the way you want it to be then: Don't even ask it! (about WTC7)

Slide 237:
6 Years Later, NIST Has Yet to Explain WTC 7 Collapse
"But truthfully, I don't really know. We've had trouble getting a handle on Building No. 7." -- Dr. Shyam Sunder, Acting Director Building and Fire Research Laboratory (NIST)

Slide 238:
NIST's WTC7 collapse analysis -- long overdue -- first "decoupled" from Twin Towers' study, has now been outsourced to a private contractor: Applied Research Associates, Albuquerque, NM.

Slide 239:
ARA is directed not to examine the 1-7th floors or the 47th floor! (per NIST 3/31/06 Solicitation SB1341-06-Q-0186 a fixed price purchase order awarded to ARA, Inc.)

WTC7 Collapsed? It's only 5:07 p.m. EST
BBC WORLD NEWS UPDATE: TERRORISM ATTACKS IN U.S. World Trade Centre destroyed by hijacked planes. Pentagon hit and burning. 4:57 p.m. EST, 23 minutes before Building 7 collapsed at 5:20 p.m.
[Gavin Estler] Now, more on the latest building collapse in New York. You might have heard a few moments ago I was talking about the Salomon building collapsing. And indeed it has. Apparently, that's only a few hundred yards away from where the World Trade Center Towers were. And it seems that this was not a result of a new attack, it was because the building had been weakened during this morning's attacks. We'll probably find out more about that now from our correspondent Jane Standley. Jane, what more can you tell us about the Salomon building and its collapse.
[Jane Standley] Well, only really what you already know. Details are very, very sketchy. There's almost a sense downtown in New York, behind me, down by the World Trade Centers, of just an area completely closed off as the rescue workers try to do their job. But this isn't the first building that has suffered as a result. We know that part of the Marriott Hotel next to the World Trade Center also collapsed as a result of this huge amount of falling debris from 110 floors of the two twin towers of the World Trade Center. As you can see behind me, the Trade Center appears to be still burning. We see these huge clouds of smoke and ash, and we know that behind that is an empty piece of what was a very familiar New York skyline, a symbol of the financial prosperity of this city, but completely disappeared now and New York is still unable to take on board what has happened to them today.
[Gavin Estler] Presumably there were very few people in the Salomon building when it collapsed. I mean, there were, I suppose, fears of possible further collapses around the area.
[Jane Standley] That's what you would hope because this whole downtown area behind me has been completely sealed of and evacuated apart from the emergency workers. That was done by the Mayor Rudy Giuliani much earlier today because, of course, of the dreadful collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. But New York is very much still a city in chaos. The phones are not working properly, the subway lines are not working properly, and we know that down there, near the World Trade Center, there are three schools that are being turned into triage centers for emergency treatment. I know that over in New York Harbor where the famous Statue of Liberty is there is a field hospital where 1,500 people are being treated and we have heard, though it's unconfirmed as yet, that 100 New York City police officers have been taken there as well for treatment. But we do need to confirm those figures for the officers.
[Gavin Estler] It's now, what, some eight hours since the attacks. Is there any estimate yet available of the number of casualties in the World Trade Center?
[Jane Standley] I think we can only go at this point with the words expressed by the Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, that it's too frightening to think how many there could be. We know that it's about almost 300 people on the airliners that were used in these attacks, but you've got to remember, this was 9:00 in the morning on a Tuesday morning. It's busy in downtown Manhattan in the financial district then. The World Trade Center itself has 50,000 workers. There are tens of thousands of tourists that go there every day. The figures are almost too frightening to contemplate. You can understand why nobody yet wants to put a figure on them.
[Gavin Estler] Listening to the Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, a bit earlier, one of his messages was business as usual. You know, we won't let this get us down. But presumably a lot of Manhattan people must have fled the city to Long Island to get away from possible further attacks?
[Jane Standley] Well, a lot of people were certainly trying to. But you remember that very early on all the bridges and tunnels to the city as well as the airports were closed. New York was sealed, essentially. Now we do know that the Long Island Railroad has begun running again to get people out of the city if they can, and people who can't manage to get out and perhaps live in that area, they are being offered accommodation in empty school buildings. But certainly I saw earlier today huge crowds of people desperately trying to walk up upper Manhattan to get as far away as possible. And I think nobody really knows how to go, or where to go, and you have to remember even now I don't think people, it can sink in to people what's happened.
[Gavin Estler] We haven't, for the last hour or so, heard much from the people of Manhattan. You're with them there. What are they saying tonight after this catastrophic attack?
[Jane Standley] As I said, many just cannot believe that this has happened, and I've seen, you know, big, burly men and women with tears in their eyes today, shaking their heads, wondering what on earth is going on. There was a sense of panic, reports from the scene of people just absolutely horrified, and I've already seen some photographs that a man took down in the downtown area and it looks life the aftermath of a huge atom bomb, or something full of debris and like a white carpeting of snow from all the dust and rubbish that had fallen. I don't think people can comprehend. They certainly have lost any feeling of safety. There's still a great pride in the city, people are determined to fight back, but a great sense of shock and loss. People keep looking at the sky, for example, where you can see the plume of smoke and say, when that's gone, it won't be there anymore. Our twin towers won't be there. Such a symbol of New York.
[Gavin Estler] Are they talking yet about revenge and what the government should do to counter this threat or are they numb still?
[Jane Standley] I think people are still numb and I don't think people are talking about revenge in that way at all yet. I think people are still too traumatized. We don't know how many people have been killed. We can't even put a figure, I think when you talk to people on they don't even say how many people might have been killed and injured. And I think that feeling of the ___ of the devastation, people don't really know what to say or what to think. I think they feel the bubble of their security being in America has definitely been popped. This city in this country will not be the same. But they don't really know where turn. That's the very sad thing. I think there's going to be a lot of very, very traumatized people. This has hit them very, very hard.
[Gavin Estler] I think many of us, when we heard the news perhaps on the radio earlier today were completely flabbergasted by it and just couldn't comprehend it.
I mean, it almost sounded too far fetched. I was wondering what it felt like for you being in Manhattan ... Well, unfortunately, I think we've lost the line with Jane Standley in Manhattan. Perhaps we can rejoin her and follow that up later.

Slide 297:
Structural Innovations Allowed the Open Floor Plan
• 208' x 208' = 43,000 s.f. per floor
• Each tower had 3.8M s.f.
• 11.2 M total s.f. for the 8 building complex
• Largest floor span: 60'
• Core: 135' x 87
In July of 1971, the American Society of Civil Engineers presented a National Award judging the buildings to be "the engineering project that demonstrates the greatest engineering skills, and represents the greatest contribution to engineering progress and mankind ..."

Slide 298:
WTC -- Structural Concept
Departs from the High-Rise Tradition of the Dense Grid of Steel
• The Twin Towers were built as a "Tube Structure" with a very strong dense "mesh" of steel surrounding the exterior and acting as a "bearing wall", and to resist the lateral loads (EQ & wind).
• Inside was the "Core", a dense grid of 47 immense steel box columns 4" thick at the base and 2" thick at mid-Tower.
• Pre-fabricated floor assemblies (22 GA steel deck over 29" deep steel web joists) were topped with 4" steel reinforced concrete.
o Most of these were completely pulverized on 9/11, not stacked up on the ground below.
• Trusses were welded & bolted to beams at core, and spandrels at perimeter bearing wall.
Most High-rises up to this time were built on a dense grid of steel or concrete frames all the way through the building.

WTC Structural Imperative: Jet Airliner-Proof
from the DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"

Slide 307:
"John Skilling and Les Robertson were the structural engineers who designed the streamlined steel frames of the Twin Towers in the 1960's.
Because a wayward army bomber flew into the Empire State Building in 1945, the towers were built with skyscraper crashes in mind."
[Leslie E. Robertson, Structural Engineer] "We had designed the project for the impact of the largest airplane of its time ...
the Boeing 707.
That is, to take this jet airplane, run it into the building, destroy a lot of structure, and still have it stand up."
[Frank A. DeMartini, Manager, WTC Construction & Project Management] "The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time.
I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners, because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door.
This intense grid. And the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting.
It really does nothing to the screen netting."
[Leslie E. Robertson, Structural Engineer] "To the best of my knowledge, the considerations of the fuel in the airplane in terms of an explosion or a great fire, was not considered. Now, we were not responsible for that aspect of the design."
Imagine, building expressly for airplane impact, but never thinking of the fuel.

Slides 308, 309 & 310:
WTC Engineer Planned for Jet Impacts
• Towers designed by John Skilling.
• Skilling noted that he "designed the WTC Tower to take a hit from a Boeing 707 traveling 600 mph."
• Asked in 1993 if he had considered plane crashes in his design:
o "Our Analysis indicated the biggest problem would be the fact that all the fuel would dump into the building. [But] the building structure would still be there." -- City in the Sky, Glanz and Lipton

Slide 311:
WTC Structure "Compensates" After Airliner Impact
"The robustness of the perimeter frame-tube system and the large size of the buildings helped the towers withstand the impact. The structural system redistributed loads without collapsing in places of aircraft impact ..." -- NIST
• "The towers withstood the initial impact of the aircraft ... the buildings had more than 1,000 times the mass of the aircraft ... this ability to withstand the initial impact is hardly surprising." -- Eager and Musso, JOM, 53(12)(2001), pp. 8-11

Slide 312:
Deceptive Illustrations from PBS Nova -- "Why the Towers Fell"
This model is typical of the deceptive illustrations misrepresenting the structural core of the building to look like mysterious floating horizontal slabs -- no core columns shown!
This model is from an animated sequence of falling floor trusses -- also very misleading. Missing are both the perpendicular cross trusses that would prevent this behavior, as well as the concrete filled steel floor decking. The floor pan also serves to interconnect the trusses and provide stiffness and strength to the entire floor system.

• Misleading diagrams made it look to non-technical readers as though there were no central structural core at all.
• Quite easy to imagine this building collapsing!

• "... all of a sudden the ground just started shaking. It felt like a train was running under my feet ... The next thing we know, we look up and the tower is collapsing." -- Paul Curran, Firefighter (F.D.N.Y.)

Slides 326 & 327:
The Ground Shake Preceding the Collapse of WTC 2
• "It actually shook my bones." -- Louis Cook, Paramedic (E.M.S.)
• "Shortly before the first tower came down, I remember feeling the ground shaking. I heard a terrible noise, and then debris just started flying everywhere. People started running ..." -- Bradley Mann, Lieutenant (E.M.S.)

Slide 328:
More Firefighters Witness Flashes and Explosions
• "Somewhere around the middle of the World Trade Center, there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially, it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building, and that building had started to explode."

Slide 329:
(from the court-ordered release of the "Oral Histories")
• "We were there I don't know, maybe 10, 15 minutes, and then I just remember there was an explosion ... It seemed like on television they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions." -- Rich Banaciski, Firefighter, FDNY

Slide 330:
• "... At first I thought it was -- do you ever see professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop? ... When I heard that frigging noise ... that's when I saw the building coming down." -- Daniel Rivera, EMS Paramedic

Slides 331 & 332:
• One eyewitness whose office is near the World Trade Center told AFP that he was standing among a crowd of people on Church Street, about two-and-a-half blocks from the South tower, when he saw "a number of brief light sources being omitted from inside the building between floors 10 and 15." He saw about six of these brief flashes, accompanied by "a crackling sound" before the tower collapsed.
• "When I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down ... I saw low-level flashes."

Slide 333:
• As we are looking up at the building, what I saw was, it looked like the building was blowing out on all four sides. We actually heard the pops. You know, you heard the pops of the building ... " -- Joseph Meola, Firefighter (F.D.N.Y.)

Slide 334:
• "The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out of the building. And then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building." -- Karin Deshore, Captain (E.M.S.)

Slide 335:
Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I thought -- at that time I didn't know what it was. I mean, it could have been as a result of the building collapsing, things exploding, but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down."

Slide 336:
• "... I thought the terrorists planted explosives somewhere in the building. That's how loud it was, crackling explosive ..."

"Yeah, here's one of the guys, he can tell you I'm okay, alright. Here, hold on."
"You want to call your mother or something."

Slides 339, 340, 341 & 342:
Firefighters report blasts at WTC Towers just before collapses:
• WTC 1: "Suddenly there was another loud boom at the upper floors, then there was a series of smaller explosions which appeared to go completely around the building at the upper floors. And another loud earth-shattering blast with a large fire ball which blew out more debris ..." -- Det. Thomas M. Inman
• WTC 2: "When I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down, I saw low-level flashes. In my conversation with Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I thought -- at that time I didn't know what it was. I mean, it could have been as a result of the building collapsing, things exploding, but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down.
• Q. Was that on the lower level of the building or up where the fire was?
• A. No, the lower level of the building. You know, like when they demolish a building, how when they blow up a building, when it falls down? That's what I thought I saw. And I didn't broach the topic to him, but he asked me. He said I don't know if I'm crazy, but I just wanted to ask you because you were standing right next to me ... He said did you see any flashes? I said, yes, well, I thought it was just me. He said no, I saw them, too." -- Assistant Commissioner Stephen Gregory -- FDNY WCT2 File No. 91 10008

Slide 343:
FDNY Members Witnessed Explosions

Slide 344:
"We came down to the lobby. There was nobody there. What the fuck! What do we do. We made it outside. We made it about a block?"
"We made it at least two blocks and we saw it, floor by floor, it started popping out."
"It was as if they had detonated it, as if they had planned to take down a building, BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM."
"All the way down. I was watching it and running and then you just saw this cloud of shit chasing you down. You couldn't outrun it. I jumped behind a batallion car. I hid under the car, and I was just waiting to die."

Slide 345:
News Reporters Tend to Say the Truth on the First Day ...
"Sounded like gunfire: bang, bang, bang, bang, bang ... and then all of a sudden -- three big explosions."
"Anybody who has ever watched a building being demolished on purpose knows that if you're going to do this you have to get at the under infrastructure of a building and bring it down."
"The entire building has just collapsed as if a demolition team set off ... when you see the old demolitions of these old buildings, it folded down on itself and it is not there anymore."

Slide 346:
"At 10:30 I tried to leave the building, but as soon as I got outside I heard a second explosion. And another rumble. And more smoke. And more dust. I ran inside the buildings, the chandeliers shook, and again, black smoke filled the air. Within another five minutes we were covered again with more silt and more dust and then a fire marshal came in and said we had to leave because if there was a third explosion, this building might not last."
"All of a sudden there was this big explosion. I don't know if -- just like what you just seen, that's what we went through before we came out of the building."
[Stephen Evans, North American Business Correspondence] "There was another big, big explosion in the other tower. Flames coming out and just billowing grey smoke. People still not panicking. People not quite understanding what was going on. Then somebody said that they saw an airliner go into one of those towers. Then, an hour later than that, we had that big explosion from much much lower. I don't know what on earth caused that. Whatever the cause, the terribleness, the hugeness of what's happened, so huge in fact that most of the people around simply can't understand what happened. People were just standing around, talking to each other, nodding their heads.
"Do you know if it was an explosion or a building collapse?"
"To me it sounded like, to me it sounded like an explosion, but it was a huge explosion."
[NBC's Pat Dawson Interviews FDNY Fire Safety Chief Albert Turi] "Chief Albert Turi told me that he was here after the events that took place this morning. He tried to get his men out as quickly as he could, but he said that there was another explosion which took place, and then an hour after there was another explosion in one of the towers here. So according to his theory, he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building."
[Marc Trains] "This is as close as we can get to the base of the World Trade Center.
You can see the firemen assembled here. The police officers, FBI agents.
And you can see the Two Towers. A huge explosion raining debris on all of us! WE BETTER GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!
"It just went BA BOOM, like a bomb in there, and it was like ___ coming down those stairs. And when we finally got to the bottom, and we were coming out, and another explosion ... flying."
"It sounded like gunfire: BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG! And then all of a sudden three big explosions."
"I was about five blocks away when I heard explosions.
Three thuds ... we just got out of there ...
and it kind of tipped over and folded over on itself."
"We've heard reports of secondary explosions after the aircraft impact. Whether in fact there wasn't something else at the base of the towers that in fact were the coup de grace to bring them to the ground."
"As we were making our way to the stairway, there was a heavy duty explosion."

Dr. David Ray Griffin
Professor of Religion and Theology
Author of 30 books (including five about 9/11)
"The Destruction of the World Trade Center: Why the Official Story Cannot Be True," by David Ray Griffin
Comments on the Oral Histories of 9/11 Emergency Workers: Explosions, Flashes, Bombs, etc.
"Deputy Commissioner Thomas Fitzpatrick said, 'It looked like sparkling around one specific layer of the building. My initial reaction was that this was exactly the way it looks when they show you those implosions on TV.'
"A few witnesses spoke of horizontal ejection. [Fire] Chief Frank Cruthers said: 'There was what appeared to be an explosion. It appeared at the very top simultaneously from all four sides. Material shot out horizontally, and then there seemed to be a momentary delay before you could see the beginning of the collapse.'
"Now that's very important because defenders of the official theory say that these horizontal ejections were caused when the floors collapsed and pushed the material out. So listen to Firefighter James Curran who said, 'I looked back and I heard like every floor went chu-chu-chu. I looked back and from the pressure, everything was getting blown out of the floors BEFORE it actually collapsed.'
"If all these firefighters and medical workers witnessed all these phenomena suggestive of controlled demolition, you might be wondering why you have not heard much about this. Part of the answer is probably provided by Auxiliary Lt. Fireman Paul Issac having said that 'There were definitely bombs in those buildings.' Isaac added that, 'Many other firemen know that there were bombs in the buildings but they're afraid for their jobs to admit it because higher-ups forbid discussion of this fact.'

Slide 351:
• How could explosives be placed without the building occupants knowing?
• Unlike conventional building demolitions, the perimeter columns could not be accessed as easily, requiring a lot more explosive energy from the explosives placed in the core.

Slide 352:
Core Area Columns Easily Accessible from Elevators

Slide 353:
Each core column is adjacent to one of up to 50 elevator shafts (or utility rooms on upper floors), making it relatively easy to set the charges without detection.

Slide 358:
A Precedent for "Top Down Demolition"
NIST states that controlled demolitions only start at the bottom.
From the DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"

Slide 359:
"... the words of a senior blaster:"
"We blow the basement, all the columns in the basement. Then we crack it up at the top to get it started. We go every other floor ... all the way down. Every explosive has a timer on it -- that's why it's 'controlled.' When the columns go, each floor goes down and impacts the one below, and keeps going." -- Demolitions expert.
Mark Loizeaux is president of a company called Controlled Demolition:
"You don't have to go to the top floor. You can go almost anywhere in the structure, and given the right circumstances, you can release all of that stored energy, converting it into what's called "kinetic energy." That's energy in motion. And that's what brings the building down."

3. Squibs: Explosive Charges Visible at LOWER FLOORS

Slide 375:
From "Loose Change, Second Edition"
WTC Squibs -- Explosive Ejections

Slide 376:
"In all the videos of the collapses, explosions can be seen bursting from the building 20-30 stories below the demolition wave.
And here."

Slides 377, 378, 379, 380 & 381:
"Squibs" -- at WTC 2
• Pulverized Building Materials
• 160 to 200 feet / sec. velocity
• 20, 40, and 60 stories below
• Focalized ejections
o "Piston" effect in elevator hoistways would not create focalized ejections 60 feet away from hoistway
• Precise locations at middle of building face
o 60 feet from hoistway!

Slide 382:
Squib Velocities are "Explosive"
Moreover, a "piston effect" from a falling floor pushing air out of the building would tend to have a uniform air pressure and blow out most of the windows on the floors(s)
• But this could never happen because the squibs are 20 to 40 floors below the "collapsing" building!
• Squibs occur at precise locations (center of bldg. facade)
• Squibs occur at speeds (160 to 200 feet per second) that could only be propelled by explosives.

Slide 383:
These WTC 2 Squibs: 126 mph
David Chandler, Physics / Math Teacher

Slide 384:
"As the South Tower begins to explode, we track two squibs near the bottom of the frame. They shoot out quickly at first, then slow and merge in with the rest of the dust cloud.
Using the first few data points, we see that the first squib shoots out at 44.98 M/sec., or about 100 mph.
Doing the same for the second squib, we get a speed of 56.3 M/sec., which works out closer to 126 mph."

Slide 385:
4. Near Free-Fall Pace Through Path of Greatest Resistance

Slide 386:
Nearly Free Fall Speed of Collapse
Free-Fall Speed in a vacuum - 9.2 s.
• The building "collapses" somewhere between 9.5 and 10.5 seconds.
• The debris hits the ground within 15 seconds
From "Loose Change -- Second Edition"

Slide 387:
"Galileo's Law of Falling Bodies calculates the time in which an object will travel a certain distance in complete free-fall. Distance (D) = 16.08 X Seconds Squared. The South Tower was 1,362 feet tall. 1,362 = 16.08 x 85.7 or 9.2 Seconds.
The Twin Towers came down in nearly free-fall speed."

Slide 388:
A 9/11 Story Problem: Which 15 story building hits the ground first?
• If the 15 story section is falling at free fall speed ...
o All of its gravitational potential energy is converted to Kinetic Energy (movement)
o It is not available to do the work of "crushing" the building below!

Exercise: Find FEMA's "Pile Driver"
No Piston
No Mass = No Transfer of Momentum
• Can you find FEMA's "pile driver" in this image or any of the other images of the collapses of the Twin Towers?
• Even if the "pile driver" is hidden within the dust cloud, it would only have a fraction of the mass of the former top of the building, since the building's mass is being blow outside the building's perimeter, as is confirmed by the ensuing debris field.

Analysis of Demolition Waves

Slide 398:
• Watch how even the "collapse" is -- advancing rows of explosions progressing in a perfectly straight line around the building. Symmetrical progression even though asymmetrical damage!
• There is only dust and smoke where the top of the building use to be. A great quantity of dust mixed with structural steel is ejected out horizontally at high speed.
• The demolition wave is clearly advancing ahead of the actual falling structure above. The delays between demolition charges would have to be very precisely controlled to create this effect. The detonators on each floor would be synchronously timed to the split second, with control of the sequencing by pre-programmed computer, but remotely started at the floor of the plane impact.

Slide 399:
• The steel frame structure was almost completely dismembered.
• Cut up and ready for shipment.

Slide 405
From DVD: "9/11 Mysteries"
"Now let's look at the collapse of the Twin Towers. We are seeing explosions rather than implosions, a first in demolition history. A sequenced rumble becomes a roar as debris is thrown outward. The damage is not contained. Even the windows are blown from neighborhood buildings. What kind of energy enabled this? A FEMA photographer taking pictures of Ground Zero wondered why so many steel beams were jutting from neighborhood buildings. What shot pieces of the Towers all the way across the street?"

Slide 411:
"Girders weighing several tons were found 600 feet from the base of the North Tower. How fast they were ejected depends on where they originated. If they came from high in the building, they were thrown outwards at about 50 mph. If they came from lower down, the speed had to be even greater. Gravity alone cannot account for such high lateral ejection speeds."

The Physics of Lateral Ejections
David Chandler, Physics / Math Teacher

Slide 413:
"Using special software, we can analyze motion on video clips frame by frame. I have placed markers on each frame so we can track a particular projectile.
From the markers we can get a data table and plot various graphs. The data here shows that the object we are tracking was shot horizontally at over 70 mph. The energy needed to hurl a 4-ton girder at this speed is comparable to the energy needed to hurl a 200-pound cannonball three miles.

They must have disintegrated --- There were 6,000 of them ... There's stuff crumpled up, but go identify it as a floor deck if you can. I couldn't believe it -- not one floor panel ..."

8. Enormous Pyroclastic Clouds of Pulverized Concrete

Slide 419:
Where is All the Concrete?
• Answer: This was clearly NOT a classic demolition. That is why we have no frame of reference with which to understand it. However, if we think about it, the shredding of the building and the great area of debris is all the more evidence of explosions.
There are no large chunks of concrete found on the surface at Ground Zero -- only shredded structural steel.

Slide 420:
Pyroclastic Dust Clouds
Jeff King, Doctor / Scientist, MIT
"One of the most significant things to my thinking that indicates that this could not have been the sort of collapse that we are told it was is the presence of the dust clouds. And, as you've seen in the pictures, and I'm sure all of us have seen probably more than we would like, there were very very large clouds of very thick dust that enveloped the area, that crossed the river, that made it almost all the way to New Jersey from the pictures that I've seen. This type of flow is something we are familiar with in physics. It occurs in only two situations that we know of, naturally. One is in volcanic eruptions, where a large amount of material is suddenly exploded into the air, and basically forms small particles. The other situation is something called turbidity currents. These occur along the edges of the continental shelves where mud or sediment will slump and become suspended in water. And the common thread is you have large amounts of a dense material that is suspended very quickly in a fluid, thereby creating another denser fluid, which is in effect the dust cloud. And that fluid can achieve considerable velocities. The problem with creating this sort of slurry of fine particles is that there really is no mechanism that has been proposed. We have concrete floors with carpeting or flooring over them. We have furniture. We have floors that are basically coming together in a collapse. But the concrete is basically protected under these layers. Early in the collapse, in the very first moments, we see these thick clouds being ejected at very high speed. They are clearly dense because they flow downward, and become part of this large overall pyroclastic flow. What we're basically being told is that concrete sort of jumped up into mid-air and exploded itself, and then was ejected as the floors came together. Not a very plausible mechanism but I have yet to hear of anything else proposed to explain it. From quite a few people on the scene we have been told that the powder represented most of the concrete. That the amount of intact, macroscopic chunks of concrete on the scene were negligible. Basically, everything was reduced to powder. And incidentally, we also know that other things besides concrete were reduced to powder. We know that contents of computers, exotic metals from computer chips, these sorts of things were also identified in the dust and in very small particles, generally on the order of less than 100 microns in diameter. So we have a real issue of mechanism as far as what in the process of this collapse could cause so many things to be pulverized.

Slide 422:
N.Y. Governor Pataki -- "Pulverized Concrete"

Slide 423:
"And you look and you see there's no concrete. There's very little concrete. All you see is a ____."
"What happened to the concrete?"
"The concrete was pulverized. And I was down here on Tuesday, and it was like you were on a foreign planet. All of lower Manhattan -- not just this site -- from river to river there was dust, powder, two to three inches thick. The concrete was just pulverized."

Slide 424:
Pulverization of the Concrete
A striking feature of the Twin Towers' destruction was the pulverization of most of the concrete into gravel and dust before it hit the ground. This is evident from the explosive mushrooming of the towers into vast clouds of concrete as they fell.
Virtually no large pieces of concrete were found at Ground Zero, only twisted pieces of steel. Estimates put the size of the dust particles in the ten-to-100-micron range -- the width of a human hair.

Slide 425:
[Joe Casaliggi, Engine 7] "You have two 110-story office buildings -- you don't find a desk, you don't find a chair, you don't find a telephone, a computer.
The biggest piece of a telephone I found was half of the keypad, and it was about this big.
The buildings collapsed to dust."

Slide 426:
The Wall of Concrete Clouds Then Traveled Outward Across the River.

Slide 427:
9/11/01 -- A Typical Street in Downtown Manhattan
Mostly unburned paper mixes with the dust of the top half of the Twin Towers. This is all that is left of the concrete floors, gypsum wall board, steel decking, office furniture, office machinery, filing cabinets. The dust averages 4" deep. Most of the 6" curb appears filled in.

Slide 428:
Pyroclastic Dust Clouds
• 90,000 tons of concrete missing from each building
• 100-micron to 10-mil particle size
• Settled 4" thick all over downtown Manhattan

Slide 429:
Dust Cloud Expansion by Heat Can Be Calculated
• Dust Cloud Expansion Energy Sink Vastly Exceeded Gravitational Energy Source
• Dust cloud of North Tower expanded to about 5 times the building volume by 30 seconds from collapse start.
• Heat energy is required to produce expansion: Ideal gas law: PV=nRT where: P = pressure, V = Volume, T = absolute temperature
• The energy for the heat required is about 10x the gravitational potential energy!
o Energy required for 3.4x expansion in 30 seconds is on the order of 1,500,000 kWH.
o But the gravitational potential energy was about 110,000 kWH

Slide 430:
Gravitation Potential Energy of 15 Story Upper Section of North Tower = 110,000 KWH
Near free-fall speed of collapse (all of its P.E. is converted to Kinetic → This is all the work that it can do!!
1. Expansion of Dust Clouds (to 5x building volume in 30 seconds) → Massive heat-Energy required
2. Creation of tons of molten metal → 4,000 heat source?
3. Crush 80,000 tons of structural steel frame → At near free-fall speed?
4. Pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete to fine dust → And where is the "grinder"?

Slide 431:
Massive Pulverization
Lt. Kenneth Christiansen, Ladder Company 5, Greenwich Village
"What I expected to see was nothing like what I actually did see at the time of my arrival at the site.
There wasn't much that you could say, that you could describe. Everything was dust and metal. There was no typewriters, no chairs. There was no nothing."

Slide 433:
The Only File Cabinet Found
• Of the hundreds of thousands of file cabinets in the Towers, only this one in the basement was found!

Slide 434:

Slide 435:
Pulverization of WTC Victims
• More than 700 bone fragments, each less than a half an inch long, have now been found on top of the 40-story Deutsche Bank building across the street from the South Tower.
• How did they get there? How did they get so small?

Slide 436:
In April, 2006, New Yorkers were distressed to learn that bone fragments, human remains from 9/11, had been found on the roof of the nearby Deutsche Bank Building.
"And how, in God's name, did those fragments get there?"
"It surprised me that there were still bone fragments or human remains that had not been discovered."
"How is it possible, that after five years, they are finally looking on the rooftops of the Deutsche building. I mean, that's crazy!"

Slides 437, 438, 439 & 440.
Pulverization of WTC Victims
• Total of 2,749 victims
o Only 300 whole bodies were found.
• Almost 20,000 pieces of bodies were found
o 6,000 pieces small enough to fit in test tubes
o 1,151 victims remain completely unaccounted for
o 200 pieces matched to a single person
Can fire and gravitational collapse cause such massive body pulverization?

Slides 445 & 446:
Has your Steel Fireplace Ever Melted?
• "The fire is the most misunderstood part of the WTC collapse. Even today, the media reports (and many scientists believe) that the steel melted. It is argued that the jet fuel burns very hot, especially with so much fuel present. This is not true ... The temperature of the fire at the WTC was not unusual, and it was most definitely NOT capable of melting steel." -- Eager and Musso, 2001
A fireplace is a diffuse flame burning in air, as was the WTC fire. The maximum flame temperature for burning hydrocarbons (i.e. jet fuel) with an ideal fuel/air mixture) is 1,500 to 1,700 °F -- hardly sufficient to melt steel at 2,730 °F. The steel grate in a roaring fire in a typical home fireplace will rarely reach 1,000 °F, and it never melts!

Slide 447:
Steel Temperatures were insufficient for failure (applies to all WTC buildings)
"But it is very difficult to reach [even] this maximum temperature with a diffuse flame. There is nothing to ensure that the fuel and air in a diffuse flame are mixed in the best ratio ... This is why the temperatures in a residential or office fire are usually in the 930 °F to 1,200 °F (air temp) range. It is known that the WTC fire was [such] a fuel-rich / oxygen starved, diffuse flame, as evidenced by the copious black smoke." -- Cote, A.E., editor, Fire Protection Handbook, 17th Edition, Quincy, Maine: National Fire Protection Association, 1992.

Slide 448:
"Structural steel loses about half of its strength at 1,200 °F [steel temp]. Even a 50% loss of strength is still insufficient, by itself, to explain the WTC collapse ... The WTC, on this low-wind day, was likely not stressed more than a third of the design allowable ... Even with its strength halved, the steel could still support two to three times the stresses imposed by a 1,200 °F fire ..." -- Eager/Musso & Bazant/Zhou

Slides 449, 450, 451 & 452:
Flame/Air vs. Steel Temperatures
• NIST's Report never points out the difference between flame temperature and steel temperature, implying that they are the same. This ignores the thermal conductivity of steel.
• In actual tests of hydrocarbon-fueled fires in car parks [parking garages] with exposed steel structures, conducted by Corus Construction, the highest recorded temperature of any of the steel temp. in any of the many tests was only 680 °F!
• Bazant and Zhou (2001), who support the official "collapse" theory, require 1,470 °F for structural steel failure.
• NIST claims that the fires reached over 1,800 °F.

Slide 453:
NIST's Metallographic Analysis Contradicts its Own "High Core Temperatures" Claim:
• Using metallographic analysis, NIST determined that there was NO evidence that ANY of the core column samples had reached temperatures above 452 °F. And these samples were chosen based on proximity to the hottest fires -- per NIST.

Slide 454:
NIST Tables:
Maximum WTC Column Temps. < 600 °F (chart shows Celsius temps.)
The maximum temperatures shown are less than half that required for steel failure.

Slide 455:
Hear it from the N.Y. Firefighter who lost his life in the South Tower:
• Chief Oreo Palmer's transmission states: "We're on the 78th floor. We have two isolated pockets of fire. We should be able to knock it down with two lines."
• Also -- Brian Clark, a survivor making his way down from the 86th floor at the 80th floor noted: "There were small flames visible through the [damaged] wall ... lapping up against the wall ..."
o One of only four people in either tower to escape from a floor above the plane's impact. Executive Vice President of Euro Brokers, Inc. on the 84th floor of the South Tower. He also served as a volunteer fire-warden.
Where was the all-consuming inferno?
• (Floor 78 was officially being ravaged by an 1,500 °F inferno at this time.)
• These transmissions were made just minutes before WTC 2's collapse. There were supposedly massive structural failures occurring in this section of the building at this time -- according to NIST!

Slide 456:
Same as Slide 455:

Slide 457:
NIST Blames Dislodged Fireproofing
• "The two aircraft hit the towers at high speed and did considerable damage to principal structural components: core columns, floors, and perimeter columns.
• "However, the towers withstood the impacts and would have remained standing were it not for the dislodged insulation (fireproofing) and the subsequent multi-floor fires."
At ALL beams, core columns, and perimeter columns all the way around the building??

Slide 458:
Data from FEMA & NIST Reports

Slides 459 & 460:
Fire Engineering: "FEMA Investigation a Half-Baked Farce"
• "Fire Engineering has good reason to believe that the 'official investigation' blessed by FEMA ... is a half-baked farce that may already have been commandeered by political forces whose primary interests, to put it mildly, lie far afield of full disclosure.
• "Respected members of the fire protection engineering community are beginning to raise red flags ... The structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers."
Bill Manning, "$elling Out the Investigation," Fire Engineering, January 2002

Slide 461:
The NIST Report (National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce)

Slide 462:
Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers
NIST's specific objectives in this $20M effort were:
1. Determine why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed following the initial impacts of the aircraft and why and how WTC 7 collapsed;
2. Determine why the injuries and fatalities were so high or low depending on location ...
3. Determine what procedures and practices were used in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of WTC 1, 2, and 7.

Slides 463 & 464:
The NIST Report: Scope
• Objective 1:
o "The focus of the Investigation was on the sequence of events from the instant of aircraft impact to the initiation of collapse for each tower. For brevity in this report, this sequence is referred to as the "probable collapse sequence," although it does not actually include the structural behavior of the tower after the conditions for collapse initiation were reached and collapse became inevitable (?!).

Slide 465:
The NIST Report's Title
There was no "Collapse" analysis at all!

Slide 466:
NIST's Scientific Method:
NIST: If the original question gives you the wrong conclusions about the FIRE Hypothesis: Draw conclusions about a different question! (the initiation of the collapse)

Slides 467, 468, 469, 470, 471 & 472:
NIST NCSTAR! Section 6.14.4
Events Following Collapse Initiation:
"The Structure below the level of collapse initiation offered minimal resistance to the falling building mass at and above the impact zone. The potential energy released by the downward movement of the large building mass far exceeded the capacity of the intact structure below to absorb that through energy of deformation ...
" ... the building section came down essentially in free fall as seen in the videos. As the stories below sequentially failed, the falling mass increased, further increasing the demand on the floors below, which were unable to arrest the moving mass."
(This is NOT an analysis with supporting calculations. It is speculation in an attempt to support the fire-induced collapse hypothesis!)

Slide 473:
NIST Also Casts Doubt on Their Collapse Theory
• NIST's 9/27/07 Response to "Request for Correction" by Steven Jones, Ph.D., Kevin Ryan, B. Chem., Richard Gage, AIA, Bob McIlvaine and others, acknowledges:
"We are unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse [of the Twin Towers]"

Slide 474:
The NIST Report
A Mountain of Distraction (TNRAT: "They'll Never Read All This")
42 Sub-reports, 10,000 pages -- including
• 1,000 pages of modeling of the airplanes -- down to the turbines, and the building impact, the building structures, and maintenance issues.
o Ubiquitous irrelevant detail
• 100 pages of fire modeling and life safety issues
• Only 1/2 page on the core presumption -- the "collapse initiation" and the following "global collapse."
• Losing the forest for the trees -- making it a very difficult task to ferret out the truth
• This $20M cover-up -- a much more polished effort at hiding the truth than the FEMA investigation

Also see: "The NIST WTC Investigation -- How real was the Investigation?", by Eric Douglas, Architect, 12/2006

Slide 476:
The NIST Report
Unfounded Assumptions
1. NIST provides little evidence for their "collapse initiation" theory, and the computer models don't support the theory.
2. Experiments to justify computer models used 3.4 MW super burners (about 500 wood stoves in a living-room-size area!) in order to achieve 1,650 °F ceiling temperatures (because steel loses 1/2 of its strength at about that temperature)
• In fact, the available evidence suggests lower temperatures.
3. "Global Collapse" follows automatically from "Collapse Initiation"
a. No evidence, nor any history of such an event.
b. Violates known engineering principles of steel-framed buildings.
c. Violates the Scientific Method which says that in order for a phenomena to be taken seriously it must be reproducible -- or it doesn't exist ("top down total progressive collapse").
4. NIST claims that the South Tower core damage was "greater" than the North Tower core damage. The available evidence on the next suggests otherwise! This was necessary in order to explain why the WTC 2 fell after only 56 minutes -- and well after the fires burned out!

Slide 477:
Why Does the South Tower Fall First?
SOUTH TOWER: Flight 175 Approach Angle: Bad approach angle means the jet fuel bursts out of the building and explodes outside.
NORTH TOWER: Flight 11 Approach Angle: Almost perfect approach delivers all the jet fuel deep inside the building.

Slide 478:
The NIST Report
Startling Omissions
• NIST freely admits that the "focus of the investigation was on the sequence of events from the instant of aircraft impact to the initiation of collapse for each tower. For brevity in this report, this sequence is referred to as the "probable collapse sequence," although it does not actually include the structural behavior of the tower after the conditions for collapse initiation were reached.
o The entire NIST investigation stops before the real investigation begins!
o Why? Because, if they analyzed any of the evidence starting with the collapse, they would have to deal with the overwhelming evidence of the explosive demolitions!
• NIST modeled only the 10 floors surrounding the airplane impacts.
• NIST refuses to publish the data for the computer models or make them available for review. Scientists routinely show their data in order to document and prove the results, i.e., exactly how they reached 1,650 °F ceiling temperatures!
• Furthermore, NIST (unlike FEMA) does not acknowledge that most of the South Tower's fuel was burned up outside the building.
• While NIST shows two separate time/temperature snapshots in the North Tower, they show only one in the South Tower. Why? Because the second one would have documented that the fires were basically "out" prior to the collapse -- making it impossible to document why it "collapsed."
• NIST omits any mention of FEMA's "sulfidation," severe corrosion, and intergranular melting.

Slide 479:
The NIST Report
Outrageous Lies
• NIST misrepresents the floor plan elements
o Core columns shown asymmetrically and 3x smaller (we will never know how they modeled them in the computer!)
• NIST jet impact models didn't achieve the desired results so they created additional scenarios:
o increased the plane speed by a few Q%
o decreased the approach angle by a few %
o increased the aircraft weight by 5%
o increased the aircraft strength by 15%
o decreased the tower strength by 20%
o adjusted the Towers' live load
o increased the fuel by 25%
• NIST denies any existence of Molten Metal
o Found by numerous N.Y.F.D. eyewitnesses and WTC structural engineer
NIST's computer simulation had the floor sagging 42" but their physical tests at UL showed only 4" of sag after 50 minutes (close to South Tower's failure time)! Ten times the observed deflection!

Slide 480:
NIST's Fudged Computer "Simulations"
• Actual fire tests with models sponsored by NIST did not fail or collapse
• No other high-rise, steel-frame buildings have collapsed due to fires and damage.
• What to do? Computer simulations! With circular reasoning!
o i.e., "the buildings wouldn't have collapsed unless we ..."
• Page 142: "The investigation Team then defined three cases for each building by combining the middle, less severe, and more severe values of the influential variables. Upon a preliminary examination of the middle cases, it became clear that the towers would likely remain standing. The less severe cases were discarded ... The middle cases ... were discarded.
• The more severe case (which became Case B for WTC 1 and Case D for WTC 2) was used for the global analysis of each tower. Complete sets of simulations were then performed for Cases B and D.
To the extent that the simulations deviated from the photographic evidence or eyewitness reports [e.g., complete collapse occurred], the investigators adjusted the input.

Slide 481:
NIST's FAQ Response Dodges Controlled Demolition Questions
• On August 30, 2006, NIST posted on their website a list of 14 frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers to them. NIST avoids answering the central charges of its most visible critique, Jim Hoffman's "Building a Better Mirage: NIST's 3-Year $20,000,000 Cover-Up of the Crime of the Century":
o That NIST uses the diversionary tactic of describing some events -- such as the airliner crashes -- in great detail, while almost completely avoiding the core question of what brought the Towers down.
o That NIST's report is internally inconsistent, supposing that steel columns were heated to temperatures hundreds of degrees in excess of the maximum temperatures indicated by its steel samples.
o That NIST fails to substantiate its implied claim that its computer models predicted "collapse initiation."
o NIST fails to address the obvious features of the Towers' destruction that are unique to controlled demolitions.
NIST denial of controlled demolition rests entirely on their statement that "since the Towers collapse progressively from the top to the bottom, and there was no evidence of any blast or explosions in the region below the impact." (!)
In other words, "it didn't explode at the bottom so it wasn't a controlled demolition."

Slide 482:
NIST: No Attempt to Analyze Global Collapse (i.e. via Column Failure Theory)
• As stated by NIST, its entire process of analysis is truncated at the initiation of collapse.
• Therefore, it neglects to provide any explanation of its posed sequentially collapsing floor theory (i.e. pancaking).
• Thus, NIST's collapse theory becomes a completely unsupported opinion -- not technical analysis -- which relegates the key aspect of the report, thus the entire report, to irrelevance.

Slide 483:
NIST's Scientific Method:
NIST: If the report doesn't support the FIRE Hypothesis, Falsify it!

Slide 484:
Structural engineers strongly criticize the final NIST report on WTC collapses
New Civil Engineer, October 6, 2005.
• "World Trade Center disaster investigators [at NIST] are refusing to show computer visualizations of the collapse of the Twin Towers despite calls from leading structural and fire engineers, NCE has learned."
• "Visualizations of collapse mechanisms are routinely used to validate the type of finite element analysis model used by the [NIST] investigators."
• "University of Manchester [UK] Professor of structural engineering, Bailey, said there was a lot to be gained from visuals. 'NIST should really show the visualizations; otherwise, the opportunity to correlate them back to the video evidence and identify any errors in the modeling will be lost ...'"
A leading U.S. structural engineer said NIST had obviously devoted enormous resources to the development of the impact and fire models. "By comparison, the global structural model is not as sophisticated," he said. "The software used [by NIST] has been pushed to new limits, and there have been a lot of simplifications, extrapolations and judgment calls." -- Dave Parker, 2005

Slides 485, 486 & 487:
Former Chief of NIST's Fire Science Division Calls for Independent Review of World Trade Center Investigation
• August 22, 2007: "Dr. James Quintiere Questions the WTC Investigations" at the 2007 World Fire Safety Conference. "I wish that there would be a peer review of this ..."
• "I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they've done; both structurally and from a fire point of view."
• "Let's look at real alternatives that might have been the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Towers."

Explosives Planted in Towers, N.M. Tech Expert Says
• Albuquerque Journal, 11 September, 2001, by Olivier Uyttebrouck, "Televised images of the attacks on the World Trade Center Suggest that explosive devices causes the collapse of both towers," a New Mexico Tech explosion expert said Tuesday. The collapse of the buildings appears "too methodical" to be a chance result of airplanes colliding with the structures," said Van Romero, Vice President for research at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
• "My opinion is based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center, there were some explosive devices inside the buildings that causes the towers to collapse," Romero said.
• Romero is a former director of the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center at Tech, which studies explosive materials and the effects of explosions on buildings, aircraft and other structures.

Demolition Expert Questions WTC "Collapse"
• Mike Taylor, a demolition expert, comments early on New Scientist, 12 Sept. 2001
"The blatant disregard of controlled demolition as one of the obvious possibilities in the FEMA and NIST investigations may be evidence in and of itself for deliberate concealment given the numerous eyewitness accounts provided to the authorities concluding that it looked like a controlled demolition."
• "It looked like a classic controlled demolition." Mr. Taylor is from the National Association of Demolition Contractors in Doylestown, PA.
• "The collapse of the WTC Towers mirrored the strategy used by demolition experts. In controlled demolitions, explosives are placed not just on the lowest three floors but also on several consecutive floors ..."
• "The explosions at the higher floors enable the collapse to gain downward momentum as gravity pulls the full weight of unsupported higher floors down into lower floors in a snowballing effect."

CA Structural Engineer Ronald Brookman, SE, Questions the WTC Collapses
"... explosive clouds of dust and debris moving horizontally and vertically upward as the collapses of WTC 1 and WTC 2 are just beginning does not look anything like a heat-induced gravitational collapse mechanism. As a structural engineer, I believe in the laws of physics and rely on them every day ... I would really like to know exactly why complete collapse of the twin towers became "inevitable" as expressed by NIST without ANY scientific analysis to substantiate it. Why would all 110 stories drop straight down to the ground in 10 seconds, pulverizing the contents to dust and twisted steel? ... The truth is in the details, so let's not just sweep it under the rug. None of the official reports address the issue of total collapse." -- Ronald H. Brookman, Structural Engineer, 21 Years experience, Lic: Structural Engineer 3653 CA; B.S. & M.S. Engineering, U.C. Davis

Another Structural Engineer Questions the WTC Collapses
"Why the towers fell: Two Theories," by William Rice, P.E.
Posted March 1, 2007, Vermont Guardian
• "The interesting fact is that each of these 110-story Twin Towers fell upon itself in about ten seconds at nearly free-fall speed. This violates Newton's Law of Conservation of Momentum that would require that as the stationary inertia of each floor is overcome by being hit, the mass (weight) increases and the free-fall speed decreases."
• "Even if Newton's Law is ignored, the prevailing theory would have us believe that each of the Twin Towers inexplicably collapsed upon itself crushing all 287 massive columns on each floor while maintaining a free-fall speed as if the 100,00 or more tons of supporting structural-steel framework underneath didn't exist."

"The jet fuel contributed very little to the duration of the fires, and all the fires were very weak in historical perspective. They were oxygen starved as evidenced by the black smoke. If you dig deeper into the NIST reports, they confirm that steel temperatures were low. I presented for continuing education credits at the NFPA World Safety Conference in Boston, MA 6/4/2007. My presentation showed that all three WTC 'collapses' have no resemblance to any previous high rise fire, full scale fire tests in the UK involving much higher steel temperatures, or computer simulations using finite element analysis."

FEMA Study Team Member & Structural Expert "Looks Like a Managed Demolition"
Note that this statement by Levy is contradicted by his work as a member of the FEMA study team, which indicated that the floor trusses sagged and their connections failed as a result of the fires.
Matthys Levy, Co-author, "Why Buildings Fall Down"

Slide 512:
"If you've seen many of the managed demolitions, where they implode a building, and they cause it to essentially fall vertically, because they cause all of the vertical columns to fail simultaneously. That's exactly what it looked like, and that's what happened."
"It was live on television. I mean, just literally millions of people ..."

FEMA Already on Site 9/10/01
FEMA exercise Tripod II brought FEMA personnel to Manhattan on Sept. 10:
"...the reason Pier 92 was selected as a command center was because on the next day, on September 12, Pier 92 was going to have a drill. It had hundreds of people here, from FEMA, from the Federal Government, from the State, from the State Emergency Management Office. And they were getting ready for a drill for biochemical attack. So that was gonna be the place they were going to have the drill. The equipment was already there." -- Former N.Y.C. mayor Rudy Giuliani to 9-11 Commission; this testimony was not included in the 9-11 Commission report.
Corroborated by one involved: "We were one of the first teams that was deployed to support the City of New York in this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night (9/10/2001) and went right into action on Tuesday morning." (9/11/2001) -- Tom Kenney to Dan Rather, TV interview, Sept. 13, 2001

Slide 521:
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, N.Y. City
ABC News 12:01 p.m. 9/11/01
• Mayor Giuliani was warned 10 minutes prior that the WTC tower was going to collapse!
• Who warned him? There were 300 firefighters that didn't get warned!
• No steel-framed high-rise building had collapsed because of fire before 9/11, so how was it known that the WTC was going to collapse?

Slide 522:
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, New York City
ABC News 12:01 p.m. 9/11/01. Giuliani admits to being told the Towers would collapse ...
"I went down to the scene, and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there, with the Police Commissioner and the Fire Commissioner, and the Head of Emergency Management, and we were operating out of there when were were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building. So we were trapped in the building for 10-15 minutes until we finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and it took a lot of people with it."

"Summary of Explosive Destruction," by Dr. David Ray Griffin

Slide 525:
"These facts taken together render the likelihood of the official theory essentially zero. In fact, each of the ten phenomena, the likelihood of it occurring without explosives being used is by itself essentially zero. But let's be generous and suggest maybe there's a 1% chance that these things could occur: virtual free-fall speed, straight down; an enormous amount of dust. 1% chance. But when you figure out the probabilities then and you say how many that two of them would occur, three of them would occur? By the time you get up to ten of them occurring without explosives, you're talking about the likelihood of one in a trillion! So, we can say that the official theory about the towers is disproved as thoroughly as any such theory could possibly be. Whereas, all of the evidence can be explained by the alternative theory according to which the towers were brought down by explosives. The official theory is therefore an outrageous theory, whereas the alternative theory is, from a scientific point of view, the only possible theory."

"The official story is so inadequate and far-fetched that there must be another one."
Article/Interview 1/13/02: "The planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry."

With a quick action alert, they should have been there in five minutes or ten minutes ... The inquiry has been very shallow, very superficial.
