Directed energy is not a wild idea. The military has DEWs in service already ( DE lasers ) that we know of. We have had microwaves since 1945, and lasers since 1955. Why is this so far fetched.
Do we really know what the perpetrators of the events on 9/11 have in there arsenal? Most of the 9/11 truth community is mired in alignment with only concern with explosive demolition evidence; but there is more to the story. I am not trying to get in the middle of the feud between the egos of the 9/11 science; but there are a few things unanswered, like the following:
Lack of significant seismic data to support explosive demolition
and no damage to the Bathtub of the wtc.
Lack of materials on the ground at ground zero.
Spontaneous car fires even at some distance from WTC.
Un-burnt paper everywhere, even next to the cars.
Media unreported hurricane Erin, heading straight magnetic north then stalling outside NYC until after the events and turning away.
Six Alaska magnetometer stations recording magnetic north shift coinciding with events on 9/11, actual data and grafts from the sites.
Barometric pressure, temp. and wind flat-lining on measurements from the major airports data during events on 9/11.
The transmutation of metals , aluminum to zinc, and others.
Levels of tritium like those associated with LENR. (Dr. Jones coined it cold fusion)
Iron rich spheres ,which are not only associated with thermitics.
There is more.
This info is all from the fascinating book Where did the Towers Go , by Dr. Judy Wood.
I know I will receive all kinds of flack just for stating her name;
but why do the other "truthers" allow themselves to be controlled into only one scenario. They call you a "dis-info agent" if you don't tow the line for Jones and Gage. Look at all the evidence you can get. Those who don't want you to look further are whom you should question motive . All I know is that I get reamed for just mentioning this stuff.
See this link I ran across might shed some light.
