The Smoking Gun. WTC7 taken down by CONTROLLED demolition. WTC1 and WTC2 as well. What are we to make of this?

Controlled demolition.

In case you have not seen the new documentary, where now thousands of structural engineers, architects, chemical engineers, and physicists are going on record that IT IS NOT PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE that those three buildings could have been brought down by office fires, or by even high-impact 767 crashes in regards to WTC1 and WTC2. (You can watch that documentary when you have time here:)


All...I repeat all...of the three buildings brought down that day...comprising the worst structural "failures" in world history...were done by CONTROLLED DEMOLITION.

Incontrovertible. Irrefutable.

And extremely high-tech, high energy military grade explosives which are able to melt steel in a flash, were used.

This is now, without question.

We have solved the what. Now we turn to the how...and then the WHO.

But the government's official accounts, the FEMA and the NIST reports, are so ridden with fraud, gross negligence, and pseudoscience, that those reports...are CRIME SCENES in and of themselves.

We need to start prosecuting right there and then work our way up...but I digress...

3000 innocent citizens and first responders have died! Who will speak for them?? Who will bring them justice??

And hundreds of thousands of family members and friends to the victims who carry the pain with them to this day...deserve a right to know what happened... rather than being insulted by these incompetent, taxpayer-funded government-sponsored cover-ups to the scene of the worst mass murder in American history.

WTC7 was demolished differently than the Twin Towers: All or most of its basement supports were severed at once....as evidenced by the free fall, or fall at the speed of gravity with no resistance, of the first 108 feet.

In other words, 108 feet, you know, 8 to 10 stories of the building of the lower floors, just ceased to exist in an instant.

Where did they go? Did those floors slip into a parallel universe?

Or were they blown to smithereens?

Certainly the truth...wherever it may lie...is not the, fake, forced, fraudulent model reconstruction that NIST (MIST?) tried to shove down the throats of the American taxpayer, $22 Million Dollars later!

As to the destruction of the WTC1 and WTC2 towers...two of the STRONGEST vertical structures on Earth...the entire buildings were laden with nano-thermite, with complete destruction set to begin just below the airplane impact zones, and timed to look like a "normal" gravitational collapse.

It was a brilliant execution.

[Except there is no such thing as a "normal gravitational collapse." Asymmetrical damage (the jet impacts)...can not lead to a symmetrical global collapse. Physically impossible.]

You heard the first collective shaped charge "ka-POW" of the south tower floors being blown apart just below the jet impact area, then the explosions of the other successive floors were timed and were increasingly masked by the continuous roar of the massive demolition wave which gained velocity and amplitude as it plummeted to Earth.

Very clever.

But, eyes don't deceive...and ears don't....thanks to the advent of cameras and cell phone cameras.

Complete gravitational collapse on super-highrises from office fires no matter how hot?

Doesn't happen.

Has never happened in the nearly 100 years of high-rise history.

Will never happen in the future, as long as the Laws of Physics apply....which they will forever.

Unless thermite is involved.

Which may explain the molten iron in a sheer 'waterfall' of molten metal off of the south tower as its upper 30 floor block begins to deform and rotate down, but a block no more, its angular momentum of all that incredible mass, suddenly neutralizing into dust...as the "collapse" accelerates in earnest, traveling down the former path of MOST resistance (the core) that in seconds has become--by being blown to bits--the NEW path of LEAST resistance.

Hmmm. 30 stories pulverized into powder in two seconds. Very strange.

The path of MOST resistance...becoming the path of LEAST resistance. Very strange.

Molten iron. Very strange.

What possibly could turn most of the mass of 350 vertical feet of an acre-sized building, into wisps, in a few seconds? Or melt its steel columns in the same??

Must be something...of course NOT mentioned in the taxpayer funded NIST and FEMA and 9/11 Commission Reports.

Here is the smoking gun to how the controlled demolition was set up...innocuously...with unrecognizable boxes of military-grade super-thermite sol-gel shaped charges, placed in the core areas hidden from the office tenants, against the bare columns in and around the elevator banks.

Super-thermite melts steel with incredible temperature and exrtreme levels of energy.. and pulverizes the concrete and the non-steel contents in mid-air, as Towers 1 and 2 come down.

Literally all of the floor concrete, gypsum wallboard, and FF&E, including elevators and HVAC equipment... for 110 stories of each building, an enormous weight, was pulverized to a toxic powder as fine as talcum, in mid air in seconds...and it spread out like a volcanic pyroclastic flow, over lower Manhattan...while the melted and distorted steel frames, collapse in a heap below.

sure i can see that

trashcan fires and metals burn at the same

also every building surrounding wtc1@2 fell that day
and at the same rate of speed sarc off
i guess the fact that silverstien said PULL IT
doesn't give any indication of explosives or whatever

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I'm Sorry For Using The Word Idiot.....

All three steel framed building that were struck such that columns were damaged and endured fire collapsed. Instead of focusing on trying to convince that people in government conspired to kill others for geopolitical gain, try focusing on being critical of what our agencies knew and didn't act on. If so, why not? Maybe the warhawks exploited after the fact. Is it possible for politicans to lie? Absolutely - war with Iraq and no WMDs. Planes flew into those buildings and fires broke out, we saw it. No matter what you think, there is no conclusive evidence of demolition and there never will be. Do I think that anyone should just buy the "official story? - No. Trust government blindly? - No. Concentrate on before the attack if anything, but in my opinion it would be best to just let it go.

Many criminals would rather that people just

forget about their crimes, and let it go. When are you going to realize that life doesn't work that way? You don't get away with murder just because you want to, and think everyone should just forget about it!!! You are either completely afraid of the truth, or you are actively trying to keep people from searching for the truth. Which is it?

sharkhearted's picture

"Let it go???"

3,000 civilians and first responders are dead.

Hundreds of thousands of the victims families have PTSD to this day.

Hundreds of first responders and cleanup operators are sick or dying from all the toxins of the WTC dust or cleanup and thousands of first responders and clearup workers have PTSD.

6,000 of our military have been sent to their deaths in two very questionable wars.

Tens of thousands of our military are maimed, burned, and lacking limbs and many more suffering from PTSD

Hundreds of thousands of otherwise innocent Iraqis and Afghanis are dead in "collateral damage."

The NIST and FEMA reports are so full of fraud, coverups, and pseudoscience, that the reports are crime scenes in and of themselves. This is the place to begin prosecuting.

The REAL story is out there, but it is not being told.

We have a MORAL OBLIGATION to all of the victims and troop victims and their families, to get to the bottom of this.

No, we must not let it go.

Well Put

At the *very least* they should re-open the investigation. Even if there was no cover-up at all, it was still the worst attack on American soil in our history. That's something worth investigating.

Excellent point.

Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I agree 100%. We should NEVER let this go. 9/11 is a

conspiracy of the highest order. This was unquestionably a U.S. Government false flag operation for the purpose of rallying citizens to attack Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a proven fact that thermite and thermate were used to Demolition all three buildings.
If we continue to educate ourselves by watching the documentaries, reading the books regarding 9/11, we can help others become aware of the truth of that day, and soon the majority of the people won't merely hope or request, but be strong enough to Demand accountability from our government - their days of tyranny are numbered with or without 9/11.
In our lifetime, 9/11 was the biggest catastrophe perpetrated against American citizens by anyone, but to realize that it was perpetrated by the highest officials in our own Govt to me is the most heinous crime of treason and those responsible should be executed. We should never rest until justice be served.

Fact: Steel framed buildings HAVE collapsed due to fire. Plenty.

Here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XMTALBYRNA
I know, that won't be enough to convince some, so be sure to catch this one with several examples. I've got it started at the relevant time. Be sure to note Windsor Building in Madrid, you know, the one so often used to verify the "never before" claim? Turns out not to be exactly true: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MRSr1MnFuk&feature=player_de...
And of course, who can forget McCormick Place? I know, it's a large span, but a "steel framed building" nevertheless: https://www.google.com/search?q=mccormick+place+fire&hl=en&r...

It's a fact. Steel buildings have collapsed due strictly to fire.

Undo what Wilson did

collapsing due to fire

and collapsing at free fall speed into its own footprint are two completely different things.

fireant's picture

It wasn't free fall. Let's be accurate.

It was fast, yes. Any video however, will show you the first debris to fall hit the ground well ahead of the collapsing structure. That's important. It shows there was some resistance to collapse.

Undo what Wilson did

Umm ... Epic FAIL

(1) Not a steel framed building.

(2) Not a building collapse.

The part of the building that was on fire, fell over. The rest of the building remained strong.

What, are you blind?

None of those were symmetric

None of those were symmetric and vertical collapses through the path of greatest resistance. The collapses on 9/11 were.

fireant's picture

The towers were essentially hollow tubes.

There was very little resistance to the falling matter. The falling matter actually took the path of least resistance. Study the building structure and you will understand. It was not the vertical structure which collapsed in the below impact portions of the towers.

Undo what Wilson did

You just brought up exactly

what many of us are questioning. "There was very little resistance". Exactly the problem. Had there not been controlled demolition to take out that resistance then each floor would have provided some resistance at the time of impact from the above material. This resistance would have slowed the rate of fall. And, I have studied structures, and calculated moment resistance on a steel frame assembly, and I don't understand how it could have happened as it was told to us.

fireant's picture

Very important point.

"resistance on a steel frame assembly"
You see, everyone assumes there was a steel frame assembly to offer resistances. If you study the unique design of the towers, there was none for the vast majority of the floor space. The steel structure resistance was confined to 27% of the square footage, clustered in one rectangle (the core). The 73% was floor spans with no structure underneath. The spans were 60 feet in two directions, 30 in the other two, and again, no structure underneath. The floor joists were lightweight trusses, sandwiched between the outer wall and the core, attached with an "L" bracket you could hold in your hand. That's all the resistance there was for all the jumbled falling mass.
Not only that, if you understand the cores were not fully severed at the time of collapse, you will know the floors beneath the airplane impact zones were weakened and dislodged due to the excessive stress upon the core.
Lastly, at least one core was still standing post collapse:

Your head, fireant, is a hollow sphere.

To call the most majestic towers in the world "hollow tubes" is traitorous as far as I'm concerned.
WTC Towers 1&2 and 7 all had Inner Cores positioned around the elevator shafts, 47 two to five inch thick columns that protected elevators so they would operate in any emergency or attack. Some columns at the base were five inches thick. The WTC was and remained to this day the most over built buildings in the history of steel buildings.
Daily Paul should have certain requirements. How can pure lies be allowed when the truth of a 47 column steel core in each of those buildings is common knowledge?
Are you a govt shill infiltrator? This thread has become just like the youtube comments. I'm outta here.

impact zone?

I said the towers were essentially tubes.

How you can read that to mean the columns were tubes or flimsy is beyond me. I certainly never intended for that to be communicated. The vertical cores were indeed strong and carried their load well; at least until the airplanes kinked and/or severed them.

So, we actually did NOT see those airplanes penetrate steel

of similar thickness when they went through the walls like a knife through butter? You do realize the beam thickness was 3/8" to 1/4" in the impact areas? Beam thickness tapered toward the top. Of course, you'd already know that had you studied for yourself.

Ever heard of a hammer and chisel? Do you think the concrete floors might of, just maybe been slammed into the cores by the air frame's impact?

The point being Ira, you left readers to assume the upper

columns were as thick as the lower columns. The thickness tapers to thin going up; less load requirement; less weight. It's been a while since I read it, so I may be off precisely, but the very upper floors were that thin. And you ignored the hammer and chisel analogy. The cores could very well have been kinked or sheared.

I didn't lead anyone to

I didn't lead anyone to assume anything, that's your "job". Prove the upper floors were that thin! BS

Against my better judgment, I'm gonna answer your

stupid question. It's stupid because you've got a lot of gall asking so many detailed questions when you either don't know the obvious answers and pertinent information that required some investigation. So anything we say to you is hearsay anyway as far as you're concerned. And if you take anything said as pure truth then you are still an idiot for not having info verified.
I didn't check this but I will: I cannot believe "beam thickness was 3/8 to 1/4" in the impact areas".
But to answer your above post - South Tower is the only video we have of a plane going into the building. First, it was a military plane because it had a pod on the underside. Second, I watched ten different angled videos and several in slow motion all showing a flash of light hitting the building a millisecond before the plane made contact, indicating a missile or missile to open up the wall. Third, even if the entire plane went into the building and slid along the floor until it smashed into the Core Columns, it would only cause minor damage because a plane is nothing more than a steel frame with aluminum wrapping, it would do almost no damage, like a plane crashing to earth, almost no damage to the earth. However, the engines on the plane are about nine feet high and made of titanium and are extremely heavy and can do some real damage.
So I'm ruling out any damage from the plane but possibly from the engines. Again however, even if an engine sliding across the floor to reach the core that must be a a few hundred feet away and would have lost some momentum from friction against the damn floor; additionally, if an engine hit a column and resulted in breaking it, which I would hastily say is impossible, but if it did, and even if three columns say out of four engines hit exactly the same way and collapsed the columns, it still could not in a million years drop that floor within 1/10th of a second as it did. There is nothing we know of that can drop a floor in 1/10th of a second but carefully placed charges cutting out all the beams of the floor in question.
One more major point: If you saw videos you should not even have asked such an imbecilic question because the plane came in on an angle and hit the corner of the building and you can see the fuel following out the other side right around the corner from where the plane entered. And as the engines or plane parts did not come flying out it is a safe bet they were contained and slid along that inside wall, because ultimately one engine or what may have been the remains of one engine did come flying out the back side of the building if I recall properly (I have to look at that again - it's been years). So what I'm suggesting is the engines which are the only part that can do structural damage did not even go in the direction of the elevator bank, so the core columns were never even hit.
We can talk about common sense things with regard to 9/11 and deduce how things happened. But to ask questions like "What was the thickness of the beam on the 94th floor" is a bit much I'd say. I probably could find out, but what's the point when I know know know that the beams were cut with charges that collapsed the floors at free fall speed. BTW, after the bldg collapsed, you could see pictures, stills, with many beams cut on a diagonal before the firemen with torches arrived, but one huge core beam stick straight up out of the ground cut diagonally perfect said it all - now if that's not a smoking gun, well it was a smoking column, and you can see the molten thermite had hardened on it.

fireant's picture

Was the missile shaped like an airplane with a 156' wingspan?

It all went through you know.
And I'm sorry, I've watched and watched those videos with the flash of light. I do not see it occurring prior to impact. I know that's what the author says, but it looks right at impact to me.
Since you called me an idiot,
-we do have video of the impact of both towers.
-airplanes do not have steel frames.
-if you rule out any damage from the planes, how did a 156' span of steel siding get cut?
-The South Tower was an off center hit which sliced the outer wall like being cut from ear to ear.
-The North Tower was a direct hit into the center of the core.
I'm not going to return the favor and call you an idiot, but you are factually incorrect.
And please provide link for angled column prior to fire dept arrival. All I have seen are the obvious clean up cuts.
