    How can 200'000 tons of steel melt in 12 seconds?
    Why has no other steel building EVER collapsed like the twin towers?
    Why did building 7 collapse although never hit by anything?
    Why do the collapsed buildings look like controlled demolitions?

    These questions and many, many more still need answering.

      But first I want the truth about the current Administration's ability to tyrannize the USA.
      ..the accusation against Bush (whether valid or not) is being used as a smokescreen to detract from what is happening RIGHT NOW in this country.  It's being taken over by those in power, for an agenda that is NOT in favor of the American people.

            Maybe one would ask a question about a question asked because the methodology or ideology behind the question is foolish, so it forces one to create a distraction, per se.

            The fact that there are too many unanswered questions about 9/11 and never been quite answered as should have been, for which, creates this freaking mess.

            It has nothing to do with the present administration except for the fact that it still perpetuates the on-going manipulation of society as a whole and very selective few have truly understood the basis or foundation for the many issues presently plaguing society.

            As I see it - there can only be one answer to the existing problems in America as a Nation and that would be a lack of knowledge and understanding of life itself and their role.

            Thus, creating the problem that exist presently. smile

        It is worth pursuing 9/11 because there is hard, verifiable, objective scientific evidence that this could never have been caused in the way we were led to believe. It was planned under Clinton, executed under Bush and is now concealed inder Obama. All are guilty.

        This is the card that, once removed, could bring down the whole house on top of it. 9/11 is just one of many false flag operations which have been used, are being used, and will occur in the very near future, unless the TRUTH and the PROOF is shown, and the lies and hypocrisy are exposed.

        When ordinary americans, mesmerised by what TV, newspapers and their good politicians tell them to think, are shown beyond any doubt that their own government deliberataly murdered thousands of their innocent fellow americans, then blamed it on terrorists, then used this as a pretext to invade Iraq, Afghanistan, etc etc . . then maybe, just maybe there will be an awakening.

                I realise how difficult it can be to see the big picture. Cynicism and ridicule are common reactions when something challenges your deeply held convictions. This does not, however, invalidate the arguments or the facts behind them.

                The gist of this post is that there are a growing number of professional architects and engineers, people who should know, who say that these buildings did not and could not, collapse for the reasons we were told, and they want to know the truth.

              Bin Laden didn't run and hide into a cave until he was certain we were coming for him.

              And it doesn't take melting that much steel in 12 seconds to bring down buildings.

                The Bush family and the Bin Laden family have been friends and business partners for years. Bush is hardly likely to put one of his best friends' son in jail now is he -  especially when he had absolutely nothing to do with the event in question.

                As for the buildings, 1120 architects and engineers, plus those who designed and constructed the building, don't agree with you.

            NO! It's the so-called "democracy" and it's perpetuated hoax of such. The U.S. isn't a democracy and was not intended to be one.

            The simple fact that America is suppose to be a republic, which many people apparently forgot or don't understand.

            In a Republic Government- Government worries about only domestic threats and outside foreign threats, and are to prepare our defense based on it.

            Healthcare, social security, employment, and minimum wage programs are designed to CONTROL the people and should never be offered by the Government to anyone.

            The more people depend on Government for everything in their life, the easier it will be for others to destroy what America has built up.

            Government dependency is something that shouldn't happen, because it only leads to Communism and Socialism, which are completely destructive in and of themselves.

      I  watched the planes hit the buildings on TV that morning,
      If you were in the construction industry and have worked on high rise construction, you had a simple answer to the collapse.
      Many high rise buildings are built with steel frame construction, others in years past were built with reinforced concrete.
      totally different in scope and nature.
      Applying  heat to steel creates a weakness in the steel and the steel loses its temper ( strength If the planes would have hit on higher floors ,the structure below may have been able to carry the additional dead loads.
      The planes were fully loaded with high octane fuel,crashed into the buildings spreading fuel in a concentrated area ,probably falling to lower floors,thus weakening the steel columns with the weigh of floors above  creating a domino effect and extra loading as each floor collapsed onto the floors below.
      The architects and engineers are well aware of the problems and conclusions. Buildings are designed for load,wind situations  and building foundation support.
      A wake up call?

        I also was watching TV as the news broke. My first thought was, it looks just like a building demolition.

        I saw engineers interviewed immediately after. None could explain the collapse. They said it was impossible that the NY towers could collapse in that way, also they had been designed to withstand a direct hit from the biggest plane of the time. The next day, they all either had no comment, or had changed their minds. Why?

        Burning aviation fuel does not reach a high enough temperature to melt steel so quickly - NANO THERMITE does! This was found in the rubble of the building, but all of the steel was shipped out of the USA so that it could never be examined. Why?

        Apparently the fires burned for weeks after the building collapse, and no amount of effort from the NY firemen could put it out. Why?

        Not suspicious yet?


        Finally, yes, architects and engineers are well aware of the buildings construction, and that they could never have collapsed like they did, for the reasons given. This this is why over 1120 of them have signed petitions, created websites etc to demand the truth. They know that there is a cover-up.

          The steel in the buildings did not have to melt to create a collapse. It only had to be weakened to a specific point. And I disagree about temperatures. Jet fuel is extremely explosive and reaches very high temperatures extremely quickly. Add to that, flammables which will will burn for hours, and you have a perfect storm. I don't see a conspiracy in that.

            There are just too many facts, eye-witness reports, glaring contradictions and scientific impossibilities about the 9/11 event for me to list here.

            Anyone who doubts that 9/11 was an inside job really needs to watch the video "Loose Change".

            I do get the impression that a lot of people take the time to comment on the events surrounding 9/11 but don't take the time to watch the evidence for it being a false-flag operation.

            If after watching you still agree with the official version of events, then so be it.

        I tend to agree with you, Jon Ewall.

        The conspiracy theories about buildings being rigged with explosives to implode seem totally bogus to me. Two building, over 100 stories tall rigged with millions of pounds of explosives. I'm thinking a big NO on this one. Not likely. That kind of inside job would take over a year or more to complete. And how on earth is such a plan going to be executed without being found out, especially after the previous World Trade Center debacle.

        While I do think there are plenty of other power and money conspiracies, I think the fall of the towers and surrounding buildings was due to a lot of luck on a very nasty gang of terrorists. Conditions were right. Security was weak. The list goes on.

        I don't think that acting like a bunch of Chicken Little's is going to serve anyone to empowering themselves about how to handle the realities of the world we live in.

    I don't know who the 3rd president is as Bush took office in January of 2001. I don't recall Clinton being dragged into the equation.

    But this really isn't a Bush Obama thing.  Clearly buildings that were not even hit collapsed.

    The architects of the Towers were interviewed and stated on the record the buildings were designed to take the direct impact of a Boing 707 (The jets used during the 70's when the buildings were designed).

    Bush and Cheney chose not to come clean.

    The American people were duped.  But it's not surprising with the level of Political Ignorance among the masses.

    George Bush in my opinion was a Terrible President and did enormous damage to the country.  Then along comes Obama trying to inflict even more damage.  Both are Terrible.  Both are puppets for the ruling elite. Both are dishonest.

    So take the Presidents out of the equation and look at the reality of what happened. And it wasn't just at the Towers... the whole scandal has been brushed aside.

    If you put your trust in the Federal Government you'll pay the price.

      Buildings that weren't hit came down because the collapse of the twin towers was not a controlled demolition and therefore damaged surrounding buildings. It's really not that complicated.

      Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Do you have a transcript of that?  I'm pretty sure they said it was designed to withstand impact from a plane, not a passenger jet.  And it was the amount of fuel carried by the planes that caused most of the trouble.

      I work in property and spoke to a number of architects after 9/11.  The collapse made total sense to them and they were able to point to buildings in Australia that would behave exactly the same way in the same situation. 

      All the strength of the buildings was in the skin, not in the core - so when the skin was compromised, down they came.

      That wouldn't happen to skyscrapers made of concrete, which is the usual material in Australia and elsewhere in the world where steel is too expensive.  There, the strength of the building is in the core, which would remain standing even if the facade fell away.

    The answers are out there...and none of this is "smokescreen" to cover Obama...as Brenda tries to put forward...

    The motivation for an invasion of Iraq pre-Sept. 11, 2001 is widely known....the liberal push for war by "conservatives" in the 1990's is brought into great focus in the Jan/Feb 1999 issue of Foreign Affairs....in the article "Can Saddam be Toppled? The Fantasy of Rollback" by Byman, Pollack and Rose...

    Then there is Operation Northwoods......the concept that the American government has actively worked to mislead and dupe the American people through false-flag operations based on the intentional creation of lies towards "rogue" nations...like Cuba and Iraq.  Of course, the United States played a large role in Saddam's rise to power, and in ensuring he stayed in place....

    Brenda, and to those who think like her.....you claim to want justice done towards what you view as criminal actions by a president....

    By not pushing for the punishment of men like George Bush and Dick Cheney.....by letting men like Reagan get away with abusing government to fuel illegal wars, drug/weapon smuggling, and all kinds of other shenanagans......you have ensured that future presidents have nothing to fear....

    If you want to set precedent...why not begin with the most obvious case of abuse and wrongdoing?  Why not start with Bush and Cheney...while they are still alive, and since they hold no office at this point...their incarceration will not put our nation in any bind....

    In my opinion, those who seek to minimize Bush and Cheney while focusing on Obama (who has yet to do anything on the scale of these two men) are simply biased partisans who, I believe, are less interested in justice than they are of other things, like race and misperceptions of economics....  If they really cared about justice they would have ensured that Bush never was reelected, and serious investigations would have been carried out into the pushing of false "intel"...knowingly false......onto the American people......

Thats twenty bombs in the smallest room. It is sub basement now. When we were putting them in it was ground floor and then the ground was built up around it.

                    Okay, the thing is that the Architects supposedly say the building was built to withstand a plane, that is not true in this case. The architects or engineers built the towers after Japanese structures that "sway" which means the building was made to be Flexible. High winds, and Tidal waves go after high rises in Japan and they remain standing because they sway.

                    These guys had to go to court for this. I remember it like yesterday.

    But of course the designers and builders of such structures have all had the ability to think outside of the box, as opposed to believing in the box or finding personal security within that box, as 100% of politicians would have us do! hmm

    So Richard, is the Navy lying? Where did the steel for the ship actually come from?

      no Im sure they had plenty of steel to build the ships, there were something like 380,000 tons of it removed from ground zero. China purchased 50,000 tons and not sure how much India purchased but most of it was shipped right to a wreaking facility to be recycled.

      News stories in 2006 reported that 24 tons of steel from the World Trade Center was being used to manufacture a warship named the U.S.S. New York by Northrop Grumman in a shipyard on the banks of the Mississippi.

    Again, a conspiracy does not hinge on what specifically brought the towers down.

    It was well known that Japan would attack Pearl Harbor.... World War II in the Pacific was recognized as an inevitability back in the late 1920's.....and the conflicts between Japan, the British and the United States were well accounted for....

    To top this off by having the U.S. embargo needed supplies to Japan while the U.S. remained neutral in the War (once it began) was simply the straw that broke the camel's back.....

    One simply has to have 1) a motive, and 2) the intelligence to know something is afoot....

    I don't know why people insist on meking the whole basis for collusion by gov't into 9-11 on explosives in the buildings.....

    Firefighters from within the buildings did believe (at least a few of them) that there were explosives planted...but I was not there, and I will never really know.......but, having served a short period of time in the intelligence field, I know that the likelihood that the U.S. didn't know (at some level) about what was going to happen is hard to believe....

    It just fits too perfectly with too many other things...

    Gotcha, Richard!

    I don't spend too much time on conspiracy theories, including "truthers" or "birthers."
