“The building collapsed due to fire”
I’m still waiting to see a shred of evidence to support this theory. Just “saying” that the building collapsed due to fire is not evidence or proof that it collapsed due to fire. You can bet that NIST won’t bother to explain this away:
When the hit piece comes out, this is a critical piece of evidence that NIST (I am assuming) will ignore in their report:
“Although virtually all of the structural steel from the Twin Towers and Building 7 was removed and destroyed, preventing forensic analysis, FEMA’s volunteer investigators did manage to perform “limited metallurgical examination” of some of the steel before it was recycled. Their observations, including numerous micrographs, are recorded in Appendix C of the WTC Building Performance Study. Prior to the release of FEMA’s report, a fire protection engineer and two science professors published a brief report in JOM disclosing some of this evidence. 1
The results of the examination are striking. They reveal a phenomenon never before observed in building fires: eutectic reactions, which caused “intergranular melting capable of turning a solid steel girder into Swiss cheese.” The New York Times described this as “perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation.” 2 WPI provides a graphic summary of the phenomenon. A one-inch column has been reduced to half-inch thickness. Its edges–which are curled like a paper scroll–have been thinned to almost razor sharpness. Gaping holes–some larger than a silver dollar–let light shine through a formerly solid steel flange. This Swiss cheese appearance shocked all of the fire-wise professors, who expected to see distortion and bending–but not holes.
FEMA’s investigators inferred that a “liquid eutectic mixture containing primarily iron, oxygen, and sulfur” formed during a “hot corrosion attack on the steel.” The eutectic mixture (having the elements in such proportion as to have the lowest possible melting point) penetrated the steel down grain boundaries, making it “susceptible to erosion.” …The “deep mystery” of the melted steel may be yielding its secrets to investigators not beholden to the federal government. Professor Steven Jones has pointed out that the severe corrosion, intergranular melting, and abundance of sulfur are consistent with the theory of thermite arson. ”
Previously on the page of that BBC article they had a response form with the introductory text “Will this news allay conspiracy theories surrounding the third tower? You can send us reaction using the form below.”
Below is my response using said form:
Once again the BBC is doing its job: acting in the role of intellectual bodyguards for the mass-murderers in government who stage terrorism in order to obtain more power and control.
First, everyone with an I.Q. high enough to tie their shoes is a conspiracy theorist. The mendacious and disproven official government theory regarding the 9/11 attacks is that of a conspiracy involving 19 hijackers. The editors at the BBC–presumably being experienced in the use of language–already know this of course, which demonstrates that the BBC is acting dishonestly and as a mouthpiece for government criminals’ propagandistic tactics by using such hypocritical labels which are intended to posion the well and thereby shut down honest inquiry.
The fact that the three World Trade Center towers were brought down with, e.g., thermite, has been apodictically proven based upon the known laws of physics.
From the color of the yellow-hot molten metal seen in a number of videos cascading off the South Tower, it had to be at least over 1000 °C (as the temperature of an incandescent object is exhibited by its color), yet jet fuel burns in open air at 260-315 °C; nor do burning office, building, or plane materials impart temperatures anywhere near that hot to structural members (indeed, it would present quite a hazard if such articles were constructed with such powerful incendiaries, and so designers of such objects go out of their way to make sure that they are not). Thus, if it wasn’t molten iron from thermite that we are seeing come off the South Tower, then by necessity a reaction source with a heat intensity very much like thermite had to be present. Yet there is nothing in the U.S. government’s account that can explain such a heat source; indeed, there’s nothing innocent that could explain it, since it requires some sort of extremely powerful incendiary.
For more on that, see the following three items: “Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?,” Dr. Steven E. Jones, Journal of 911 Studies, Vol. 3 (September 2006); “Experiments to test NIST ‘orange glow’ hypothesis,” Steven E. Jones, Ph.D., August 31, 2006; and “A description of molten aluminum poured onto rusty steel,” Wes Lifferth, Physics Shop, Brigham Young University, Journal of 9/11 Studies, Vol. 9 (March 2007)
Moreover, large quantities of reacted and unreacted thermite have been found in the ruins of the World Trade Center, in different samples collected both before and after clean-up operations began. So we know as a matter of empirical scientific fact that large quantities of thermite were used in order to destroy the World Trade Center.
In the following paper it is conclusively proved via chemical analysis using wavelength dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (WDS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (X-EDS) that large quantities of thermite analogs (such as thermate) were used in the destruction of the World Trade Center towers: “Revisiting 9/11/2001–Applying the Scientific Method,” Dr. Steven E. Jones, Journal of 911 Studies, Vol. 11 (May 2007).
See also the following video-recorded presentation on physical remains of thermite (in the form of unreacted flakes of thermite) from the demolished World Trade Center, collected even before clean-up operations began: “Dr. Steven E. Jones Boston 911 Conference 12-15-07 Red chips Thermite.mov,” Google Video, December 21, 2007.
So it is simply an irrefragable scientific fact that the U.S. government staged the 9/11 attacks from beginning to end.
