Please check this video, which presents scientific analysis of a collapse of all three towers.
There are architects and engineers who find official story, negating a presence of explosives in the buildings, completely unacceptable.
The detailed information can be found on http://www.ae911truth.org/
I am not so sure now about that web. Money helping always takes me out.
Still, things may work like that.
what do you think ?
Watched the 6 videos. Okay, there are some question marks there still. Check out this, Conspiracists misrepresent WTC 7's condition

Its a tragedy that in the US there has not one elected person, from either party, or senator, that has stood up to speak about 911 and the subsequent war. In Britain they have at least one..... GEORGE GALLOWAY!
the first ever steel framed buildings to collapse due to fire. (don't forget world trade centre 7 that mysteriously collapsed as well)
the first ever plane wreckage to disintegrate and "vaporize".
the first ever plane wreckage to have no bodies or blood.

You think the report or the incident is bullshit?
sorry if my comments are crude.
I just do not believe it. too convenient.
the 'hijackers' took over planes with pen knives? and the passengers just sat there and let it happen? bullshit.
Will we ever know the truth?
Most importantly what would happen if indeed this is the truth and the whole "war on terror" "axis of evil" is a lie?
my first gut reaction when i heard about 9/11 was that the Americans did it themselves (way too perfect, on many levels)and it still is. it just suites there needs too well.
Oli, how many skyscrapers have had planes crash in to them? i havent done an exhaustive search but im guessing its in single figures. Could have been a factor in the fact they fell down, could have been a factor in the fact there wasnt a lot of wreckage and could have been a factor in the lack of bodies. Just speculating of course.
no offense BTW, when i say Americans i of course mean the American government not the American people.
Popular Mechanics has debunked these insane 9/11 conspiracies. I suggest all you "truthers" read the report and then try to get a life. I can't believe that so many people can be so weak minded.
Just accepting what you are told on TV is weak minded, questioning what you are told is not weak minded.
David, I assume you swollowed the whole WMD show and tell by Bush, Rumsveld and Powell as fact also?
The first ever steel frame buildings to collapse due to fire?
1967 original heavy steel constructed McCormick Place exhibition center collapsed only 30 minutes after the start of a small electrical fire.
1997 Sight and Sound Theatre, with a steel rigid frame, collapsed due to fire.
1997 three 4-story buildings at the Kader Toy Factory in Singapore caught fire and collapsed under two hours.
Structural steel loses about 50% of its strength at 1000 degrees F. Around 1850 degrees it's down to 10 percent. Jet fuel burns at 800-1500 degrees F.
Are we there yet?
Feel this is like a Déjà vu...
Although I can't seem to find it any more, I recall we had a similar thread a year ago...
I recall that in particular Coen was very active in that particular discussion...
I agree that it's good to questioning things, but trying to argue (I'm not pointing my finger at you, Pete) with things that aren't checked nor true is hillarious...
Take the example:
That's just NOT correct...!!
Several steel framed buildings have collapsed... Now that's a fact...!
Please correct me if any of the following is wrong -
As I understand it the building was steel framed with most of the main support steel being clad with gypsum wallboard. Other steelwork was protected by spray on coatings.
In the event of a 'conventional' fire I can imagine this being an effective heat protection to the steelwork. But when being impacted with a passenger aircraft full of fuel (do we at least agree that loaded aircraft flew into the towers) I can quite imagine the wallboard and sprayed on coating being blown away. Steel at elevated temperature isn't very strong so without protection it would soon have started to buckle and collapse.
Maybe things would have been different if the steel had been given intumescent coatings as fire protection.
I work as an airline pilot and have done some accident investigation, so I think I need to say a thing or two here.
As far as the aircraft "disintegration" and nothing being left, I'll raise the first BS flag here. When you look at an aircraft, you see a massive vehicle. I look at an aircraft and see a paper-thin hull (vs. volume) and wings with the most massive objects being the landing gear, engines and wing spars. From the photos of the various crash sites, you can see engine cores and gear trucks being the most recognizable remains. Also, these aircraft were reportedly going faster than the maximum allowable speed for the structure of the aircraft at the altitudes they crashed at, so that means they were likely going in excess of 4-500 MPH. Crush a soda can with a sledge hammer and then burn it. Tell me how much remains. The human body is even less resilient to these extreme forces. Aircraft of the size crashed during the 9/11 attacks leave nothing but a smoking crater when they meet stationary objects at the speeds they were going.
Regarding the passengers doing nothing while the plane was taken over with pen knives, to me this is an offensive thought that they were cowards in some fashion. My understanding is that the weapons were "box cutters" or "utility knives", and many of the crew were killed with these weapons you find so un-threatening. Also, conventional wisdom at the time was to let hijackers have what they wanted. Don't antagonize them. Let them land the aircraft and make their demands. Keep quiet and stay alive. That is obviously no longer the case, and this philosophy no longer stands. In my opinion the passengers on board my aircraft are a fantastic line of defense against another 9/11 (ref: shoe & underwear bombers), and I'm glad they'll do their best to keep us all alive.
That said, I disagree strongly with many the actions of my country after 9/11, but that's politics, and not for this board.
So, I think the 9/11 events are exactly as described. Call me a conformist or whatever you want, but with my experience I'd say they are what they are.
There is an argument to be made on both sides of this issue, there is evidence that supports both theories also.
The issue I bring to this discussion is that we should question everything, we live in strange times and we need some degree of cynicism in order to navigate our media rich lives.
Personally I bought the whole story as it unfolded on 911, I even supported the original war because of it, I did question why we never got aggressive with the Saudi's however considering most of the said attackers were from there after all.
Then came the doubters who had many valid observations, couple that up with the sudden need to go to Iraq and the bullshit reasons for going there, this was enough to convince many folk that the people we trust to keep us safe have some sort of ulterior motives which further assisted the 'conspiracy theory' that maybe the whole damn mess may have been planned as the Iraq war was.
All the information is available for free. They are asking for a support. They collect money for certain tasks and they show exactly how much they collected. There is no requirement to send them a penny.
The most important thing about steel structure under fire is that a fire cannot produce a sudden collapse of the whole structure, similar to that achieved in controlled demolition. Fire can not give such a precision. Those buildings would never collapsed this way even if the whole buildings were set on fire (all floors).
Even if the structure of all three buildings was weakened by fires on several floors, it is impossible to make the whole building disintegrate. We would have witnessed gradual, asymmetric destruction.
The chemical signature of thermite in the dust and presence of molten metal is something that makes things even more obvious.
whether conspiracy or not, i think the terrorists could have never in their wildest dreams hoped to accomplish so much. "we" (the free world) played right into this, and gave up a lot of ours rights and freedoms.
I have a lot of doubts about 9/11 and I tend, very much, to think, that it was done in purpose to frighten the people and so invade Irak and now Afghanistan, not forgetting Yemen neither Iran.
But really it would not be any surprise now for me, that those invaded and humiliated and with so many familiars killed, could make another disaster in the United States.
What Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth pursue is an Ethic stuff. It has to be done. The trouble is that if the economy does not recover, and, that new attack happens, we will not recover for years, for the USA will take all the money left to make another war.
What to do ? We are trapped.
unless something new brings concord to the world
what else ?
Just sometimes I think "everyone hates America", even their own citizens.
I remember back to when "everyone loved the USSR". A workers paradise, everyone with plenty to eat, wonderful homes, and it was the Nazi's who killed all those Polish officers. But with the passage of time now we know different.
Maybe with the passage of time all will become clear about 9/11, but not yet. And maybe just as some refuse to believe the truth about the USSR, and others don't believe the Nazi's killed millions of Jews (and others), some will always refuse to believe the truth about 9/11 whatever that truth is.
Yet if we do not believe what you believe then we are American haters?
There was an new video released by A&E:
9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out, Full-length, Pre-Release-v1.3; Low-Res. - YouTube
In this feature length documentary with cutting-edge 9/11 evidence from more than 50 top experts in their fields -- high-rise architects, structural engineers, physicists, chemical engineers, firefighters, metallurgists, explosives experts, controlled demolition technicians, and more. Each is highly qualified in his/her respective fields. Several have Ph.D's -- including National Medal of Science awardee Lynn Margulis. She, along with the other experts, exposes the fraud of NIST and discusses how the scientific method should have been applied and acknowledges the "overwhelming" evidence of high temperature incendiaries in all dust samples of the WTC. High-rise architects and structural engineers layout the evidence in the features of the destruction of these three high-rises that point inevitably to explosive controlled demolition.
The unintended consequence of the "information age" is that the conspiracy advocates have free an uninhibited access to multiple information outlets. This is the same type of BS that the prestigious Dr. Rosie O'Donnel, steel fire expert has parroted for some time. I guess Dr. O'Donnel has never seen a blacksmith.
I put these theories up there with " witches, zombies, and free energy". Now if we could just direct their "hot air" to a wind mill, maybe we would have a wind mill that would have an efficiency better than 15%.

Government rushes to help the irresponsible and does little for the responsible.
