Fire Engineering has good reason to believe that the "official investigation" blessed by FEMA and run by the American Society of Civil Engineers is a half-baked farce that may already have been commandeered by political forces whose primary interests, to put it mildly, lie far afield of full disclosure.

The 9/11 WTC Collapses:
An Audio-Video Analysis

"Never before in history has a steel high rise building collapsed simply because of fire. On 9/11, by coincidence, three such buildings collapsed in ten to fifteen seconds, almost freefall speed.

In other words, if you dropped a brick from the top of the World Trade Center it would have taken about that time to hit the ground."

The video on the right shows a gravity driven demolition. This is the manner in which the World Trade Center buildings should have collapsed.

If the top section of WTC 1 acted like a pile driver during the collapse then Newton's third law of motion dictates that the maximum number of floors that would have collapsed below the impact area would have been twelve. 

History books show Newton's third law did not apply on 9/11.

How could this be?

Let's take a look...

9/11 Security Courtesy of Marvin Bush [Details]

Marvin Bush was a principal in a company called Securacom which provided security for the World Trade Center. Bomb sniffing dogs were removed from the buildings on 9/6. There was a power down in WTC 2 on 9/8 and 9/9. Bush's cousin had a lucky business conference location change on 9/11. Workers were encouraged to stay in the buildings after the first aircraft impact. The roof doors of the twin towers were locked, as were many stairwell doors. WTC surveillance tapes "went missing".

Who Told Giuliani the WTC was going to collapse? [Details]

Rudolph Giuliani, the Police Commissioner, the Fire Commissioner, and the Head of Emergency Management were told the World Trade Center was going to collapse. How was this known, and why were only a select few warned? UPDATE: The OEM issued the warning.

There Were No 800ºC Fires in the World Trade Center [Details]

We are told that the twin towers collapsed on 9/11 due to intense fires initiated by the plane impacts, yet eyewitness testimony and firefighters transmissions prove only office fires existed in the buildings, so why did they collapse within minutes of the aircraft impacts?

The Core of WTC 1 was Solid After the Aircraft Impact [Details]

This is demonstrated by an interview with a survivor from ABOVE the aircraft impact level.

The 'Truss Theory': A Fantasy Concocted to Conceal a Demolition [Details]

We are told that the twin towers perimeter walls were connected to the inner core by weak trusses. We are also told that the truss connection bolts were weak. If that's the case then why didn't WTC 1 collapse when Flight 11 hit the building?

Abruptly, there was an ear-splitting noise. The south tower shook... [ASNE]

Reports of a Ground Shake
Preceding the Collapse of WTC 2

"We just heard there was another explosion in the basement or in one of the lower levels of the World Trade Center"

Seismic recordings, eyewitness testimony, and two videos of WTC 1 indicate an explosive detonation occurred at the base of the building fourteen seconds before its collapse.

...the probable cause of the above: thermite detonations in the buildings.

9/11 Firefighters: Bombs and Explosions in the WTC [Details]

"Tower two has had major explosion and what appears to be a complete collapse", "...those involved in the secondary explosion at tower 1, 'kay, I've got five patients...", "We have got numerous people covered in dust from the secondary explosion...", "We've got another explosion at the tower..."

Evidence of Demolition Charges in WTC 2 [Details]

"It actually gave at a lower floor, not the floor where the plane hit, because we originally had thought there was like an internal detonation explosives because it went in succession, boom, boom, boom, boom, and then the tower came down."

Galvanic Corrosion - A Reason for WTC Demolition? [Details]

The exterior cast aluminum WTC panels were directly connected to the steel superstructure of the building, thus causing galvanic corrosion. In short, the "life cycle" of the WTC was not 200 - 300 years, more like 30 years or so.

Larry Silverstein began spending every morning at the World Trade Center shortly after he inked a 99-year deal to operate the complex in July 2001. The New York developer would have breakfast at Windows on the World, the restaurant on the 107th floor of the North tower, and then meet for several hours with tenants. But on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, he was at home, dressing for a doctor's appointment his wife had made for him, instead of at his usual table at Windows. "I had said to my wife, sweetheart, cancel my doctor's appointment. I have so much to do at the Trade Center," he recalls. "She got very upset and told me I had to go. As it turns out, that saved my life." [WSJ]

Larry Silverstein, WTC 7, and the 9/11 Demolition [Details]

We are told that World Trade Center 7 collapsed through fire, but Larry Silverstein has indicated the building was "pulled" (i.e. demolished). Videos of the collapse and other evidence shows that the building was indeed demolished. When and why was WTC 7 rigged for demolition?

Not only did Larry Silverstein miss his regular breakfast on the 107th floor of WTC 1 on 9/11, he also okayed the demolition of the pre-rigged WTC 7. When you add to this the fact that he was awarded billions of dollars in insurance payments for the World Trade Center collapses it is not difficult to see why he has been dubbed "Lucky Larry".

BBC videos announcing WTC 7's collapse at 4:54 p.m [Details]

Two live 9/11 BBC broadcasts have emerged which announced the collapse of WTC 7 at
4:54 p.m - 26 minutes before the collapse actually occurred. The collapse was supposedly a spontaneous event, so how did the BBC foretell it? Needless to say, the BBC went to great lengths to get these videos removed from the internet.

The FEMA WTC Collapse Analysis Farce [Details]

The BPAT investigation team received $600,000 in FEMA funding, a drop in the ocean compared to the $50 million set aside for the NASA investigation of the Columbia shuttle disaster. The BPAT team took more than 3 weeks to initiate an investigation of WTC debris meaning vital evidence was lost.

If the twin towers had remained standing on 9/11 (as they were supposed to) they would have been monuments to the inaction of the US government and military. These monuments would have rapidly become a huge embarrassment to many people, and would have required a costly demolition.

Incredibly these two quarter mile high buildings both suffered catastrophic structural failures and collapsed straight into their own footprints. The people who should have been red faced bankrupts as a result of 9/11 are now swimming in money and power thanks to the perfect collapse of the twin towers.

Think about it.

The collapse of WTC 1 compared
to building demolitions

"If you've seen many of the managed demolitions where they implode a building and they cause it to essentially to fall vertically because they cause all of the vertical columns to fail simultaneously, that's exactly what it looked like and that's what happened" - Matthys Levy, co author Why buildings Fall Down
