Sept 11 - controlled demolition?

One of the most puzzling things about the September 11 attacks five years ago is the way the three World Trade Centre buildings fell so perfectly, as if they had been carefully demolished by experts. Do buildings normally fall straight down, collapsing in on themselves, from random collapses? Coincidence-theorists suggest that maybe they do; after all, no steel-framed building has ever collapsed from fire, before or since, so how would we know?

Brigham Young University physics professor, Steven E. Jones, has publically cast doubt on the official theory, and has suggested that controlled demolition is a more likely cause of the collapse of the towers.

Some of the facts which cast serious doubt on the offical story:

  • film of the collapses show horizontal explosions and eyewitnesses report the sound of explosions

  • the antenna dropped first in the North Tower, which suggests the use of explosives in the core columns

  • the collapse of the 47-story WTC 7 building, which was not hit by a plane, yet dropped in its own footprint; WTC 7 housed no fewer than seven government agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service and the Central Intelligence Agency

  • WTC 7 collapsed in 6.6 seconds, just 0.6 of a second longer than it would take an object dropped from the roof to hit the ground -- as the floors collapsed, they apparently did not strike lower floors causing them them collapse

  • the concrete was pulverized into powder, which is not consistant with an ordinary collapse, but is consistant with the use of explosives

  • steel supports not only melted, but were partly evaporated, but neither diesel fuel nor ordinary office materials burn at the required 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures needed to evaporate steel
