Believing the Unbelievable
Structural steel has a melting temperature of 1510°C.
Jet fuel has a maximum burning temperature of 980°C.
Dark smoke indicates an oxygen-starved fire.
Fires in the towers were diffuse, well below 800°C.
Flight 175 weighed over 72,500 Kg and was travelling at 350mph.
WTC2 did not even visibly move when the plane slammed into it.
WTC2 was 1362 feet high.
From that height, with no resistance at all, it would take 9.2 seconds to fall.
The building collapsed in 10 seconds, which is impossibly near freefall speed.
If each floor hovered in mid-air, the "pancake" theory would have taken a minimum of 15.5 seconds.
The floors must have been falling simultaneously to reach the ground in such a short time.
In the 100-plus year history of steel frame buildings, none have EVER collapsed due to fire.
WTC2 burned for 56 minutes over 3 floors and collapsed first.
WTC1 burned for 102 minutes over 3 floors before collapsing second.
WTC7 caught fire from falling debris, and collapsed 7 hours later.
In 1975 a fire broke out on the 11th floor of WTC1, and burned for over 3 hours. Subsidiary fires were discovered on the 9th to the 19th floors.
The building suffered NO structural damage.
In 1970 1 New York Plaza burned for 6 hours and did not collapse
In 1988 the 64-floor tower, First Interstate Bank burned for 3 and a half hours. It did not collapse
One Meridian Plaza burned for 18 hours in 1991 and did not collapse
Torre Este de Parque Central burned for more than 17 hours over 26 floors in 2004. It did not collapse.
In 2005 the Windsor Tower burned for over 21 hours with temperatures inside reaching 1000°C. It did not collapse.
After 100 years, 3 collapse in 1 day.
The only method to consistently get skyscrapers to fall as fast as these 3 did is called DEMOLITION
Larry Silverstein bought the leasing rights 7 weeks before Sept 11th 2001, using only $14 million of his own money. He was also given the right to rebuild the structures should they be destroyed.
As a private developer with a 99-year lease on the World Trade Centre, he had them explicitly insured against acts of terrorism.
Silverstein was awarded a total of $5 billion following the destruction of the towers.
Put option (Betting on the fall in share values) purchases on United Airlines and American Airlines stock rose more to 4 and 25 times normal level the day before the attack.
At least 6 of the alleged hijackers have turned up alive since the attacks.
None of the 4 flight crews radioed Air Traffic Control about a hijacking in progress.
None of the contents of any of the 4 black boxes have been made public.
None of the alleged hijackers were good pilots, yet the buildings were hit with phenomenal precision.
Molten steel was found weeks later when the rubble was being removed.
Molten steel is a by-product of a thermite reaction.
The fires in the wreckage of the WTC buildings burned for over 3 months, despite the efforts of firefighters and rain to extinguish them.
Thermite contains its own supply of oxygen and does not need an exteranl source such as air. Consequently it cannot be smothered nor extinguished with water.
Evidence points to a thermite induced demolition.
