Fire Captain Dennis Tardio: “I hear an explosion and I look up. It is as if the building is being imploded, from the top floor down, one after another, boom, boom, boom.”
Assistant Fire Commissioner James Drury: “[P]eople in the street and myself included thought that the roar was so loud that the explosive—bombs were going off inside the building.”
Firefighter James Curran: “I heard like every floor went chu-chu-chu. Looked back and from the pressure everything was getting blown out of the floors before it actually collapsed.”
EMS Captain Karin Deshore: “Somewhere around the middle of the World Trade Center, there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode. The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building. I went inside… and I said I think we have another major explosion.”
9/11 COMMISSION REFUSES TO HEAR TESTIMONY OF 503 FIRST-RESPONDER EYEWITNESSESYes, there is a conspiracy, and it is going on right now. It's called a "coverup."
Within a month of 9/11, NYC fire commissioner Thomas Von Essen, a 30-year NYFD vet, set up interviews with fire, port authority police and EMT first responders, getting their initial impressions of what they experienced on Sept 11. The stories of 503 men and women is 12,000 pages, the most comprehensive on-the-scene report of what happened that day. Graeme MacQueen, a recently retired religious studies professor, read all 12,000 pages. In addition to the heartrending nature of many of the stories, the consistent theme was of hearing, feeling and seeing explosions, a controlled demoliton. Failure to officially acknowledge this evidence is further proof of an inside job by goverment, and complicity in the coverup by the media. MacQueen, a Buddhist scholar (McMaster University, Ontario, Canada), narrowed down the testimony of 118 interviews as especially court-worthy testimony. But he notes the entire testimony was excluded by the 9/11 Commission.
Do you believe everything the feds tell you? If not, doesn't that make you a conspiracy theorist?
Yes, conspiracy theorists like those at Fire Engineering, a respected fire service mag that has been around for over 125 years that was on to the coverup back in January 2002.
Selling Out the Investigation by Bill Manning
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. Except for the marginal benefit obtained from a three-day, visual walk-through of evidence sites conducted by ASCE investigation committee members- described by one close source as a "tourist trip"-no one's checking the evidence for anything.
As things now stand and if they continue in such fashion, the investigation into the World Trade Center fire and collapse will amount to paper- and computer generated hypotheticals.
However, respected members of the fire protection engineering community are beginning to raise red flags, and a resonating theory has emerged: The structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers.
Clearly, there are burning questions that need answers. Based on the incident's magnitude alone, a full-throttle, fully resourced, forensic investigation is imperative. More important, from a moral standpoint, for the safety of present and future generations who live and work in tall buildings-and for firefighters, always first in and last out-the lessons about the buildings' design and behavior in this extraordinary event must be learned and applied in the real world.
To treat the September 11 incident any differently would be the height of stupidity and ignorance.
The destruction and removal of evidence must stop immediately.
And how can a 20,000 pound beam fly laterally thru the air a couple hundred feet from the WTC site and still have enough energy left to lodge in a concrete skyscraper?
Ohio Task Force workers anchored this 20,000-pound beam from the World Trade Center lodged in a nearby building.
The Sustainability of the Controlled Demolition Hypothesis for the destruction of the Twin Towers by Tony Szamboti Mechanical Engineer911 Reasons Why 9/11 Was an Inside Job
My intent here is to show that any honest and objective look at all of the theories, for the destruction of the twin towers,
including the present government explanation, will cause one to realize that only the controlled demolition hypothesis is sustainable. I believe an honest look at the evidence will convince anyone that the controlled demolition hypothesis provides the best explanation for the complete collapses of the towers, as well as the damage to the buildings and objects surrounding them.
Damned conspiracy nuts.
They should occupy their minds with "Big Brother" officially sanctioned news stories, like wondering if Tiger Woods will win the Masters... or the latest gruesome kidnapping, rape and murder tale... Or gossiping about the latest Lady Ga-Ga video...
