I said that you used them as IF they were demolition experts. Once again, you have goofed.

Here you are lying about your lies. :rolleyes:

Please point out where I have SUPPOSEDLY used them (A&E for 9/11 Truth) as IF they were demolition experts. :blink:

Cause frankly Skyeagle, your imagination is running fricking wild and inventing things which clearly don't exists.

Which probably reveal some mental health issues. :yes:

Of course, you think there would be trip wires and the remnants of explosive devices lying about the office floors right?? :w00t:

Are you suggesting that a building that has been brought down by a controlled demolition would show no signs of explosives or other demolition materials??

I don't know how an object crashing to the ground can be interpreted as an explosion.

Does that mean that it is impossible for the sound of something impacting the ground - typically a loud sudden "bang" - to be interpreted by people to be an explosion - also typically a loud, sudden bang"?

The "mechanics" behind a car backfire and a handgun being fired are very different, yet one is quite often confused for the other.

The 2 are vastly different. It's like saying a car crashing into a tree causes an 'explosion like sound'. It doesn't. It's just metal tearing.

There is a difference between an "impact" sound and a "metal tearing" sound, to be sure, although there have been numerous accounts of the sounds of rivets "exploding" and "sounding like gunshots" when they are actually just snapping or being torn away from whatever structure they're attached to.

Metal stain tests, when a metal sample - such as a bolt - is stretched until failure often sound like small explosions or "bangs" at the moment of failure.

You say you have worked with explosives, yet you cannot tell the difference between a 'bang' from an object hitting the ground and a 'bang' from an explosives?

Would you be able to tell the difference? How do you explain the information I posted earlier of the elevator cars crashing into the sub-basement and those sounds being confused for the sounds of explosions?

Of course not. I'm sure there would be signs somewhere buried under 47 floors of rubble.

But as Skyeagle has said, they never bothered looking for explosives.

There's an interesting video series that looks at 9/11 CT claims, and part of it discusses WTC7.

The "heat soak" of the steel involves not only heating, and subsequent exapnsion, weakening and bowing of beams, but also subsequent cooling (and shrinking) of the steel as the fires move on. The theory is certain beams became unseated as the cooled (relatively speaking) and contracted, with the heat induced bowing remaining...resulting in the collapse. Were talking inches here being sufficient. WTC7 was apparently kind of peculiar with it's open atrium, making it vulnerable to the single point failure.

I'll track down the link (over at JREF). Meanwhile, there was lots of foreknowledge of the WTC7 collapse, which is why the firefighters were pulled back well before it fell.

How do you explain the information I posted earlier of the elevator cars crashing into the sub-basement and those sounds being confused for the sounds of explosions?

I meant to respond to that.

How does an elevator car explain the numerous explosions reported at different levels long after the impacts? It doesn’t appear possible that the relatively low temperatures in the core caused a continuous/steady stream of falling elevator cars.

There was also no failure of structural elements (like the crane example) prior to the failure at the collapse zone. Others believe the explosions were a natural result of the fire (even lower down the building where there was no fire), though the FDNY and FBI both believed on that morning there were “secondary devices” planted in the buildings.

So shocked were the FDNY by the first complete collapse (rather than partial collapse after a number of hours as their experience suggested), that a discussion immediately followed in their ranks as to whether the building was brought down by charges.

Of course their initial determination and subsequent theory were correct.

Yes, well, if you had read carefully you would have probably noticed where I prefaced the quote with this:

Regarding what was perceived as the "explosions", or at least addressing some of them, I posted this a while back:

At no point in the two posts where I have provided this exact quote does it claim to account for all the "sounds of explosions" nor have I claimed that either, despite your attempts to imply that it does or that I did.

You keep forgetting that other buildings suffered more damage and had bigger fires and survived. Even the NIST said the damage was not a contributing factor to the collapse of WTC7.

And, I say that impact damage suffered by WTC 7 was a contributing factor. The damage was very serious. Even firefighters observed the damage and knew the building was coming down.

And remember that the NIST said the damage didn't cause the building to collapse.

Fire weakened the structure.

Or maybe it was those explosions that made firefighters unable to get to the building like in those news reports from those at GZ?

There was no evidence that explosives were used. Was the water system working at the time? Did the firefighters hear strange noises within WTC 7 before it collapsed? Did they observe massive damage to WTC 7 before the building collapsed?

Check this out. Czero posted the story and link the other day.

The Elevator Man's Tale

What we heard was 6 and 7 car free-falling from the 107th floor and they impacted the basement at B-2 Level. And that's the explosion that filled the lobby within a matter of two or three seconds, engulfed the lobby in dust, smoke. And apparently from what I talked to with other mechanics, they saw the doors, the hatch doors blow off in the lobby level of 6 and 7 car.

So right after that explosion, we were ordered to leave the building.

But it's a lot quicker to heat soak steel than spend weeks planning and wiring a building for demolition right?? So why don't demolition companies use it Skyeagle??

Because fires are not considered a precise form of demoliton and fires pollute the air with harmful chemicals from plastics and other sources. It was alll very simple to understand why fire is not used to demolish steel-frame buildings.

But fires caused the precise demolition of WTC7....according to your logic.

Fires can cause structural failure in steel-framed buildings and when you throw in impact damage, ...welll, you should be getting the message by now.

Unless you think a building collapsing straight down into it's own footprint is not precise!! :w00t:

The building in Seoul collapsed straight down.

Demolition sometimes goes wrong, your point being what exactly?? lol They should have used fires?? lol

Nope. Do it like it has been done. Spend many weeks planning, preparing, pre-weakening the structure and precise placement of explosives. No one is going to plant tens of thousands of tons of thermite to bring down the WTC buildings. That is what I am talking about in regards to the 9/11 Truthers not understanding what it takes to bring down a building with explosive. They think that all you have to do is to plant explosives inside a steel-framed building and it will collapse, but that is not that easy and why I posted photos of buildings that were struck by bombs and yet remained standing.

Do you know why?

You used them as references, am I correct?? Let them have their new investigation, but the results will go against the 9/11 Truthers just as that new FDR investigation of American 77 went against the 9/11 Truthers in 2011.

Fire, Not Extra Explosives, Doomed Buildings, Expert Says

By John Fleck

Journal Staff Writer

A New Mexico explosives expert says he now believes there were no explosives in the World Trade Center towers, contrary to comments he made the day of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.

"Certainly the fire is what caused the building to fail," said Van Romero, a vice president at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. The day of the attack, Romero told the Journal the towers' collapse, as seen in news videotapes, looked as though it had been triggered by carefully placed explosives.

Subsequent conversations with structural engineers and more detailed looks at the tape have led Romero to a different conclusion. Romero supports other experts, who have said the intense heat of the jet fuel fires weakened the skyscrapers' steel structural beams to the point that they gave way under the weight of the floors above. That set off a chain reaction, as upper floors pancaked onto lower ones.

Oh sorry… it’s the way you worded it. I got the false impression you were suggesting all of the explosions may have been falling elevator cars. Never mind then. I’m more interested in the explosions that led experienced personnel of the FDNY and FBI to believe there were “secondary devices” and “bombs” planted in the buildings on 9/11.

Really...?

I got the false impression you were suggesting all of the explosions may have been falling elevator cars.

You got that impression from this:

Regarding what was perceived as the "explosions", or at least addressing some of them

...? :huh:

Somehow its my fault that you misinterpreted something that I wrote specifically to ensure that such misinterpretations wouldn't happen...?

Maybe you should get your computer's monitor checked because it seems to only be showing you what you want to see, not what is really there.... :unsure2:

I’m more interested in the explosions that led experienced personnel of the FDNY and FBI to believe there were “secondary devices” and “bombs” planted in the buildings on 9/11.

You mean people like FDNY Deputy Assistant Chief Albert Turi who is quoted by some who believe there were "bombs" and "secondary devices / explosions" as saying:

And as my eyes traveled up the building, and I was looking at the south tower, somewhere about halfway up, my initial reaction was there was a secondary explosion, and the entire floor area, a ring right around the building blew out.
[SOURCE]

Which is all fine and good (I guess), except that they have cherry-picked that quote and neglected the rest of what Turi said immediately after that snippet:

And as my eyes traveled up the building, and I was looking at the south tower, somewhere about halfway up, my initial reaction was there was a secondary explosion, and the entire floor area, a ring right around the building blew out. i later realized that the building had started to collapse already and this was the air being compressed and that is the floor that let go. And as my eyes traveled further up the building, I realized that this building was collapsing and I turned around and most everybody was ahead of me running for the garage, and I remember thinking I looked at this thing a little bit too long and I might not make this garage. But I dio [sic].
[SOURCE]

Or FDNY Battalion Chief Brian Dixon who is quoted (in the same source as the cherry-picked truncated Turi quote above) as saying:

... the lowest floor of fire in the south tower actually looked like someone had planted explosives around it because the whole bottom I could see -- I could see two sides of it and the other side -- it just looked like that floor blew out. I looked up and you could actually see everything blew out on the one floor. I thought, geez, this looks like an explosion up there, it blew out.

And again, the full, unabridged quote:

I was watching the fire, watching the people jump and hearing a noise and looking up and seeing -- it actually looked -- the lowest floor of fire in the south tower actually looked like someone had planted explosives around it because the whole bottom I could see -- I could see two sides of it and the other side -- it just looked like that floor blew out.I looked up and you could actually see everything blew out on the one floor. I thought, geez, this looks like an explosion up there, it blew out. Then I guess in some sense of time we looked at it and realized, no, actually it just collapsed. That is what blew out the windows, not that there was an explosion there but that windows blew out.
[SOURCE]

Now Q, you will want to read this next sentence very slowly so that you don't read into it things I haven't said or implied misinterpret what it says:

I'm not suggesting that every quote that references "bombs" or "secondary explosions / devices" has taken out of context, doesn't represent what someone
believed at the time
or has been similarly cherry-picked to give the impression that someone said one thing, when the opposite is fairly apparent when the whole quote is viewed in context, but certainly the fact that some of them can be shown to have been "selectively edited" (to be generous) - and I'm sure there are more than just the two examples I've given - should give one reason to question the validity of those claims, or at least, question the motives of those who push that particular theory of "bombs" and / or "secondary devices / explosions".

If you have questions, Q, about the preceding sentence, please ask me first before putting words in my mouth again.

Fire, Not Explosives, Felled 3rd Tower on 9/11, Report Says

Published: August 21, 2008

The investigators determined that debris from the falling twin towers damaged structural columns and ignited fires on at least 10 floors at 7 World Trade Center, which stood about 400 feet north of the twin towers. But the structural damage from the falling debris was not significant enough to threaten the tower's stability, Dr. Sunder said.

The fires on six of the lower floors burned with particular intensity because the water supply for the sprinkler system had been cut off — the upper floors had a backup water supply — and the Fire Department, devastated by the collapse of the twin towers, stopped trying to fight the blaze.

Normally, fireproofing on a skyscraper should have been sufficient to allow such a blaze to burn itself out and leave the building damaged but still standing. But investigators determined that the heat from the fire caused girders in the steel floor of 7 World Trade Center to expand. As a result, steel beams underneath the floors that provided lateral support for the tower's structural columns began to buckle or put pressure against the vertical structural columns.

And I haven’t said anything is your “fault” - you have clarified now, which I have accepted, do get over it.

No, of course not.

The "mechanics" behind a car backfire and a handgun being fired are very different, yet one is quite often confused for the other.

In my opinion that's one of those things which gets exaggerated a bit in the movies/tv, in real life the 2 sound quite different. Not that many people have practice with handguns though, so they don't know what it sounds like.

There is a difference between an "impact" sound and a "metal tearing" sound, to be sure, although there have been numerous accounts of the sounds of rivets "exploding" and "sounding like gunshots" when they are actually just snapping or being torn away from whatever structure they're attached to.

Metal stain tests, when a metal sample - such as a bolt - is stretched until failure often sound like small explosions or "bangs" at the moment of failure.

I'd describe it as more of a 'popping' bang, but I know what you mean. They also generally have that metallic 'ping' sound when they do. With all the 'crush up' :rolleyes: occurring as the towers collapse, you wouldn't be able to hear bolts going 'bang' as even with so many of them the sound would be drowned out by the...best word, 'rumble' of the collapsing towers. You would need short, sharp 'bangs' to be heard clearly through that, not just bolts popping out.

Would you be able to tell the difference? How do you explain the information I posted earlier of the elevator cars crashing into the sub-basement and those sounds being confused for the sounds of explosions?

Cz

Yes I would. That's a great example and probably the only one that could well be interpreted as an explosion while a building is collapsing. The impact causing doors to 'blow open' is in line with what most people understand and explosion to be and I can easily see how that would be interpreted as an explosion. Unfortunately that's only one example and well, the elevators had to come down at some point. It's hardly a deal breaker for me.

Question...

When was the last time a major CD was done with no pre-weakening, and no internal pre-demolition?

Also, many quotes from firefighters about "sounding like" explosions. How many of them still believe that they were bombs/cutting charges? It seems the secondary device fears at the time were similar to all the false explosions being reported in DC...just plain overreaction and fear. I'm certain there were a ton of fearful first responders that day.

The towers were decaying as the fires and damage spread. Many, many reports of strange sounds within the buildings themselves as things slowly came apart.

Fear? They knew it was a terrorist event, that there might be secondary events seemed logical at the moment.

But there are other things that cause lound reports too. The term "explosion" doesn't necessarily mean "bomb". Plus, structure was breaking, and transmitting sound in doing so. There were many potential sources of loud noises/vibrations there.

You can see random expansions in the smoke plumes coming from the buildings, lots of fire-adverse things were lighting off as the fires progressed.

Unless you can explain every one of those reports then you are wasting your time.

Lets have a look at that list from the post you've linked:

  • Eyewitness, “When we got down to the 6th floor there was like another shake or another explosion and everyone started panicing…”
  • Eyewitness, “It just went ba-boom, it was like a bomb went off and it was like holy hell coming down them stairs…”
  • Eyewitness, “We were stuck on the stairs for a while and finally got down to the lobby then when we get to the lobby there was a big explosion.”
  • Eyewitness evacuating from 47th floor, “There were explosions going off everywhere. I was convinced that there were bombs planted all over the place and someone was sitting at a control panel pushing detonator buttons. There was another explosion.. and another.. I didn't know where to run.”
  • Firefighter on 24th floor of WTC1 after hearing an explosion “I'm thinking, Oh. My God, these b******* put bombs in here like they did in 1993!??”
  • Firefighter, “As we were getting our gear on and making our way to the stairway there was a heavy duty explosion.”
  • Firefighter, “I got an eyewitness who said there was an explosion on floors 7 and 8, 7, 8.”
  • Firefighter, “Battalion 3 to dispatch, we’ve just had another explosion.”
  • Firefighter, “… Warren Street, because of the secondary explosion. We’ve got numerous people covered with dust from the secondary explosion.”
  • Firefighter, “We got another explosion on the Tower, 10-13, 10-13.”
  • Firefighter, “I was involved in the secondary explosion at tower one.”
  • Firefighter, “It was a secondary explosion probably a device either planted before or upon the aircraft that did not explode until an hour later.”
  • Firefighter, “So we’re standing there in the lobby getting all together, all of a sudden we hear [simulates explosive sound], I look down to my right and the elevator has exploded like something like out of a Bruce Willis Die Hard movie.”
  • Police officer, “There were numerous secondary explosions taking place in that building, there were continuous explosions.”
  • Doctor comment on patient, “He was actually on the 78th floor of the second tower and was evacuating the tower and experienced all these explosions and made his way back down.”
  • News reporter, Rick Sanchez, “I spoke with some police officials moments ago Chris, and they told me that they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Centre may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device in it.”
  • News reporter, Jack Kelly, “Apparently what appears to have happened was that at the same time as the two planes hit the buildings that the FBI most likely thinks there was a car or truck packed with explosives underneath the buildings which also exploded at the same time and brought both of them down.”
  • News reporter, Pat Dawson, “Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety for the New York City Fire Department, he received word of a possibility of a secondary device; that is another bomb going off, there was another explosion which took place, according to his theory he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building.”
  • News reporter, “At 10:30 I tried to leave the building but as soon as I got outside I heard a second explosion and another rumble, then a fire marshal came in and said we had to leave because if there was a third explosion this building might not last.”
  • News reporter, Steve Evans, “Then an hour later than that, we had that big explosion from much much lower. I don’t know what on earth caused that.”
  • News reporter, “We’ve heard reports of secondary explosions after the aircraft impacted, whether in fact there wasn’t something else at the base of the building the coup de grâce to bring them down.”
  • News reporter, “We presume because of the initial explosion there may have been secondary explosions as well that were detonated in the building by these terrorists.”
  • News reporter, “We’re obviously having a bit of trouble right now maintaining our location because we just heard one more explosion… do you know anything about those extra explosions we heard? Were they car bombs?”

Ok... first off, lets remove the ones without names, since, really, they can't be followed up on or counted on to be accurate or even real.

That leaves us with:

  • News reporter, Rick Sanchez, “I spoke with some police officials moments ago Chris, and they told me that they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Centre may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device in it.”
  • News reporter, Jack Kelly, “Apparently what appears to have happened was that at the same time as the two planes hit the buildings that the FBI most likely thinks there was a car or truck packed with explosives underneath the buildings which also exploded at the same time and brought both of them down.”
  • News reporter, Pat Dawson, “Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety for the New York City Fire Department, he received word of a possibility of a secondary device; that is another bomb going off, there was another explosion which took place, according to his theory he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building.”
  • News reporter, Steve Evans, “Then an hour later than that, we had that big explosion from much much lower. I don’t know what on earth caused that.”

1.

News reporter, Rick Sanchez, “I spoke with
some police officials
moments ago Chris, and they told me that they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Centre
may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device
in it.”

"some police officials"... well, that sure narrows it down

"may have been a van" "may have had some type of explosive device"... Just as likely that it "may not have been a van" and / or "may not have contained an explosive device".

(Note: Rick Sanchez would later go on to proclaim that 9/11 conspiracy theorists were "nuts and whackos"... doesn't have much to do with this topic, but I thought it was interesting...)

2.

News reporter, Jack Kelly, “Apparently what appears to have happened was that at the same time as the two planes hit the buildings that
the FBI most likely thinks there was a car or truck packed with explosives underneath the buildings which also exploded at the same time and brought both of them down.

"the FBI most likely thinks"... doesn't sound very definitive, does it...?

"exploded at the same time and brought both of them down"... well, regardless of whether you believe the official explanation or not, I think its safe to say that most people on either side of the fence don't believe the towers were each brought down by a "car or truck", especially given that the collapse doesn't start at the bottom where the alleged car or truck would be parked.

Kelley would also later go on to say that the reports were "unconfirmed" and merely a "working theory", and then in 2004 he would get fired from USA Today after it was brought out that he had been fabricating sources for his stories since 1993.

3.

News reporter, Pat Dawson, “Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety for the New York City Fire Department,
he received word of a possibility of a secondary device
; that is another bomb going off, there was another explosion which took place,
according to his theory
he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building.”

"received word of a possibility of a secondary device"... A "possibility" is hardly confirmation of fact.

"according to his theory"... the reporter even confirms that its just a theory, not fact.

Turns out, Dawson was reporting what he had been told by FDNY Deputy Assistant Chief Albert Turi (about 1/4 of the way down that page, at "0:13:44"), whom I mentioned earlier as having been misquoted by, oh, let's call them "Explosionists", and what he initially theorized to be explosions was actually the sound of the tower's floors collapsing

4.

News reporter, Steve Evans, “Then an hour later than that, we had that big explosion from much much lower.
I don’t know what on earth caused that.

"I don't know what on earth caused that"... pretty self explanatory. He doesn't say it was a bomb or secondary device, just an explosion that came from....? He doesn't know where or what it came from, just that it came from "much lower". Could very well have been an elevator crashing through to lower levels or the sub-basement.

There is one unnamed statement I'll address:

Firefighter, “So we’re standing there in the lobby getting all together, all of a sudden we hear [simulates explosive sound],
I look down to my right and the elevator has exploded
like something like out of a Bruce Willis Die Hard movie.”

Sounds an awful lot like a description of an elevator crashing to the bottom of the tower.

Pretty ironic to me that people use the explosive sounds as supposed evidence for demolition when they were pretty much reported over the span of the entire day. I mean seriously? Who sets off demolition charges hours before bringing the building down?

Cheney: Okay, blow charge number 342, but only charge number 342, on my mark...

Croney: But boss, that won't bring the building down...

Cheney: Shut up and do what I say! If we blow them all at once THEY'LL KNOW we did it... :angry:

Croney: Okay boss...

Cheney: Three... Two... One... MARK!

Croney: ba-ba-BOOM!

Cheney: Alright, now wait a few minutes and we'll blow charges 17, 48, and 251! :devil:

Croney: When do we light the thermite?

Cheney: When I say so! Now shut up and do what I say or I won't take you with me on that hunting trip next week! :angry:

It's just ridiculous.

And, I say that impact damage suffered by WTC 7 was a contributing factor.

So you disagree with the NIST report then?? :w00t:

Are you going to petition them and tell them they are wrong in their conclusions in how the WTC7 collapsed?

Or are you going to ignore it.

The damage was very serious.
Not serious enough for them to conclude that it was a contributing factor the to collapses I'm afraid.
Even firefighters observed the damage and knew the building was coming down.
And some of the police and firefighters thought it was being blown up.
Fire weakened the structure.
What even the parts where it wasn't on fire??

There was no evidence that explosives were used.

Cause they never bothered looking for them, you said so yourself.
Was the water system working at the time?
No.
Did the firefighters hear strange noises within WTC 7 before it collapsed?
Yes, news reports indicate that fire fighters couldn't get next to the building because of explosions and rubble falling from the building very early on.
Did they observe massive damage to WTC 7 before the building collapsed?
I think there are a couple of reports but as the NIST state, this wasn't the reason why the building collapsed.

WTC 5 & 6 both suffered more damage didn't collapse.

Because fires are not considered a precise form of demoliton and fires pollute the air with harmful chemicals from plastics and other sources.

So why don't demolition companies use fires which don't release harmful chemicals and plastics into the air?

It would still be better than all those weeks/months of planning wouldn't it?

It was alll very simple to understand why fire is not used to demolish steel-frame buildings.
So explain then, because so far the only reason you have come up with is that harmful substances could be released from the fires. So if that is problem, then all demolition companies would have to do is create a fire which doesn't release harmful chemicals and the building would collapse right??

Straight down, into it's own footprint like WTC7 right?? lol

Fires can cause structural failure in steel-framed buildings and when you throw in impact damage, ...welll, you should be getting the message by now.
Other than WTC 1,2 & 7, please show us these other building which collapse from fires and impact damage.

Cause all the buildings that I know of which have suffered structural damage and fires have survived. You know like the Empire State Building had a plane hit it many years ago and survived, WTC 5 & 6 received much impact damage and fires and survived.

The building in Seoul collapsed straight down.
What building??

Nope. Do it like it has been done. Spend many weeks planning, preparing, pre-weakening the structure and precise placement of explosives. No one is going to plant tens of thousands of tons of thermite to bring down the WTC buildings. That is what I am talking about in regards to the 9/11 Truthers not understanding what it takes to bring down a building with explosive.

I do know understand thanks to you Skyeagle....You just need a fire right?? lol
They think that all you have to do is to plant explosives inside a steel-framed building and it will collapse, but that is not that easy and why I posted photos of buildings that were struck by bombs and yet remained standing.

Do you know why?

Cause they didn't use fires?? :unsure:

Please point out where I have SUPPOSEDLY used them (A&E for 9/11 Truth) as IF they were demolition experts.

You used them as references, am I correct??

No, you are not correct.

This is why you can't point out "where I have SUPPOSEDLY used them (A&E for 9/11 Truth) as IF they were demolition experts." because you have imagined that I referenced them as demolition expert. In other words, you have lied and not for the first time either.

It just goes to show the lurkers the levels of self deception you are willing to go to, that you are even prepared to pull the wool over your own eyes.

Such a terrible liar Skyeagle with no shame to boot!

Let them have their new investigation, but the results will go against the 9/11 Truthers just as that new FDR investigation of American 77 went against the 9/11 Truthers in 2011.
I'm not going to ask what you are on about here and I'll put this down the rant of a mad man!! :w00t: Edited by Stundie

Ok... first off, lets remove the ones without names, since, really, they can't be followed up on or counted on to be accurate or even real.

In your dreams :lol:

All of the quotes are readily available online. I have previously verified that every one of those quotes has a legitimate source – these are video records, official interviews, on scene media reports. To sweep them aside as possibly not “accurate or even real” just because I haven’t put a name/source to them in my post, it just shows lack of investigation and interest on your part.

How can we take your views here seriously with the lack of research displayed?

All you do is rush to write it off – you don’t care for the record or evidence or what really occurred. That is the difference between OCTs and ‘truthers’… the first don’t care, whereas the latter have trawled countless information in pursuit of understanding and have a better idea than most of the full evidence.

No you cannot “remove” whatever evidence you like :lol:

You might say that it’s my job to provide the full evidence but I would say it’s each person’s duty to inform themselves.

"received word of a possibility of a secondary device"... A "possibility" is hardly confirmation of fact.

"according to his theory"... the reporter even confirms that its just a theory, not fact.

It is sufficient to warrant an investigation for the use of explosive materials. In fact, that is just standard fire code practice… not carried out by the official investigation. Such possibilities needed to be ruled out, not ignored. How do we get confirmation or determine facts without looking?

Could very well have been an elevator crashing through to lower levels or the sub-basement.

Sounds an awful lot like a description of an elevator crashing to the bottom of the tower.

Which brings me back to the very first question (the one where I supposedly misinterpreted your intention): -

How does an elevator car explain the numerous explosions reported at different levels long after the impacts? It doesn’t appear possible that the relatively low temperatures in the core caused a continuous/steady stream of falling elevator cars.

I understand why some elevator cars would fall at the time of impact, with the aircraft severing the cables. But why a time after that, i.e. later when firefighters were in the building and as Evans reported “an hour later”? And would a reporter standing a safe distance, blocks away, really interpret a falling elevator car as a “big explosion”. It is dubious in the extreme.

How do you know explosives did not cause the explosions, which after all, would be placed against core columns in the elevator shafts?
