Mr. Wagner statements are not

Mr. Wagner statements are not wrong. Pressure and heat need not be mutually exclusive to each other. For example, that column may have been left supporting more weight than it was intended to and so bent, but having been made more malleable by the heat did not break or crack.

The melting point of steel is generally upwards of 2500 degrees Fahrenheit and the temperature quoted is 'almost 2000' which may as well be 1750 degrees Fahrenheit or 1800 degrees Fahrenheit which is certainly not hot enough to melt steel.

'Bending and warping' are a sure sign of pressure acting on the heat weakened steel girders. Steel loses more than half its strength at the temperatures reported in the building. Not to mention the load on them had increased due to structural damage caused by the planes. If you don't believe steel can be weakened by office fires you need only ask yourself why the engineers found it necessary to fire proof them during the construction (unfortunately the fire proofing was knocked off by the impact of the plane)

There would have been a LOT of molten aluminium so it wouldn't be a surprise find it almost ubiquitous at the site. For example I'm sure you've seen images of it dripping from the side of the building.

Let me tell you a little secret about engineers too. I know literally hundreds. About two of them, if they gave up everything else and focused only on this for about a couple of years be able to get anywhere near the exact truth. As for architects? That's a laugh. Only the most sophisticated architects in the world could even develop a valid opinion on the issue. This was a COMPLICATED event. Even my opinion is a tapestry of others' analyses taking into account the most likely scenarios and evidence.

The truth movement will try to sell the idea that it is high school physics and that's all there is to it, but things couldn't be further from the truth. There are so many variables that in the time NIST took I doubt even they got it absolutely right to their satisfaction.

So let me get back to the topic, the last one which is eyewitness testimonies. One word-unreliable. Another word-unverified. They do not represent truth as people are telling you what they think they saw rather than what they actually saw. For all the photographic evidence I've provided explanations above.
