First half hour: Richard Gage, AIA, and civil engineer Roland Angle discuss the newly-issued University of Alaska report showing that the only possible explanation for the observed collapse of WTC-7 on 9/11 is the simultaneous failure of every column in the building—in other words, a controlled demolition. Just like your lying eyes already told you, and your government strenuously and guiltily denied.

Second half hour: Wayne Coste, another 9/11-savvy engineer, has just published “Why Were the WTC Twin Towers Destroyed That Way:
Explaining the Mechanism of Their Destruction on 9/11.” He writes: “For much of the buildings’ destruction, the observations show a highly energetic propelling force that was activated floor-by-floor with the origin of this force centered at the buildings’ core / elevator shafts and radiating outward in the north-south-east and west directions. This observed propelling force is hypothesized to be based on a nano-thermite material that was ‘tuned’ to be more like a rocket fuel than either an explosive or an incendiary. This type of material would be more explosive than a propellant and not as explosive as ‘molecular’ or high explosives.” According to Coste’s hypothesis, panels made of propellant (what might be called a “low explosive”) would have been installed in the elevator shafts and detonated in a precisely timed sequence to give us the observed “top-down” demolition.

    Thank you, Kevin Barrett, for your expose.

    I recall walking past the WTC7 tower (huge at ~50 floors, but dwarfed by twins) years back and having an eerie feeling

    First thing I sensed was how DEAD QUIET all around was. No one on sidewalk but myself. Though located only two long city blocks from the bustling, tourist-overrun twins. This was a sunny midday during business hours (as I was cutting class from grade school and roaming.)

    All the windows were blacked. Nothing inside could be seen. No person or motion. AT ALL.

    The pieces fell into place after 9/11, when it was revealed the building functioned as high security spook building.

    If it were a controlled demolition, then it could have only been an inside job at the HIGHEST level.

    This just in: All published videos of the collapse of WTC 7 are fakes. Every one of them.

    That is, they were all pre-fabricated [on computer, before 9/11], and are examples of what is commonly known as “computer generated imagery” [C.G.I.].

    In other words, every pixel of every one of the WTC7 collapse sequence videos is a computer generated, artificial, and, therefor, 100% fake.

    Which means that analyzing them for investigative purposes is a complete waste of time. [And yes of course WTC7 was demolished by pre-planted explosives, just like the other 6 WTC complex buildings were, that day. ]

    However, NONE of those 7 demolitions were ever captured live on camera. All 9/11 building collapse sequences on-record are nothing more than pre-fabricated , C.G.I. sequences, as are all on-record sequences of Fl.175 and Fl.11 ploughing into WTC ‘s 1 and 2.

  3. You know, Wayne Coste’s theory actually makes sense for a large part of the destruction.

    Small correction, but there were actually 16 people who survived the Miracle of Stairwell B. And one of them, Pasquale Buzzelli, was around the 22nd floor and wound up on top of what was left of the building after it disintegrated. This would be consistent with Coste’s theory having the blast radiating outward from the center, for if it were otherwise Buzzelli and the other 15 people would have disintegrated, too.

    But I will repeat myself, as well thought out as this is it doesn’t explain everything. Like the people in the building seemingly microwaved before the event or the weird artifacts with the vehicles, etc. There are some other forces at work here.

    Note : it has many] years since I looked at this so , my recall of details is not good

    Please, WTC& was stuck by one of the collapsing towers , which ripped a huge gash in the center of the building damaging somewhere around 40-50% of the main support columns. Pictures and films prove the building was leaning , and corners of it were leaning at various obtuse degrees away and away from each other from square/perpendicular. And above where several of the main columns were compromised , there was a machinery space containing backup generators and a large store of diesel fuel. The weight of that machinery along with the weight of the building had a cumulative effect on the integrity of the building. Making it too dangerous for firefighters to fight the fires in it , which further compromised the building

    Now I know all about Silverstein/shekelberg saying “pull-it” and all that bull, but it really did not matter the building was going to fail and certainly was “condemned” by damaged and would have been demolished.

    None of it matter, all those buildings fell as a result of jetliners crashing into them. That is no conspiracy. The real conspiracy is why did the US gov watch a bunch of known trained terrorists into the country and watch them learn to fly large jet-airliners for months, and hear all kinds of intel about them , and did nothing.

    And on the day 9/11 happened , Bush puzzy Jr. was hiding at an elementary school. My opinion is the US gov knew that plane that crashed in Pa. was bound for the White House. only the heroics of the passengers stopped that. But the US gov knew alot about Bin Laden’s plan(maybe all of it) and they let it happen.

    Personal opinion is neither the US gov nor Bin Laden’s zealots thought they could take the towers down. They all thought they were as tough as the Empire state building. But the Towers were some very weak structures , that never should have been built. Their design was not safe.

    I read Mr. Coste’s paper with great interest. What struck me was the method which Mr. Coste supposes the explosive was “panels” in the elevator shafts and that someone had seen a clean painted elevator shaft. An elevator shaft is a dirty dingy place with a gaggle of pipes, wires, and all sorts of construction widgets all over the walls. Placing panels on the walls of elevator shafts would be difficult, if not impossible. Spray paint would also be too much work as Mr. Coste supposes. It occurred to me the easiest way to apply such a “tuned nano thermite” compound would be to roll it on like paint with thick knap rollers. You could apply it as thickly as you wanted using only simple tools and a skeleton crew, apply several coats as needed. Tell your workers it’s “fire retardant”. The whole job could be accomplished quickly and cheaply. Then you only need the engineer to place the blasting caps, apply some more compound in a few more spots, et voila! War Crime of the century.

  6. the twin towers were destroyed by semantics….that explains everything

    Every single word here is false. Including the “and” and the “the”.

    Idiots? Why yes, of course, if all of these mysterious “forensic engineers” [ whatever the hell _that_ means], concluded that totally fake videos are in fact genuine. 😁

    The “forensic engineers” did a four year study as was their expertise and concluded the building could have only fallen by mined explosives. You have silly videos from no one knows. They have peer-reviewed science.

    If you’d bothered to read and understand my first comment , you’d know that I clearly stated that all 7 WTC buildings were demolished via pre-planted explosives, you frickin’ moron.

    No regards, onebornfree

  14. @hcl

    You are quite right, it was an inside job with fake graphics and fake reporting and fake scientific analysis. For the simplest, and therefor most likely to be true explanation of the whole shoot shebang, may I suggest the following link?

  15. Jsinton says:

    Oh, I’m sorry for not reading your…whatever. I just ignore the rude assholes in general.

  16. I can’t believe some people still think there were “hijackers”…( half of whom R STILL alive)..I can’t believe there R ignoramuses who don’t know that Saudi Intelligence supplied the patsies, that they were set-up, that the Wahhabi Saudis wanted secular Iraq destroyed almost as much as the Israelis did..That Doctors Fetzer & Wood are probably both right; there’s evidence for mini-nukes & a DEW..That the associated press reporter was telling the truth when she said that morning, “flt 93 has just landed in Cleveland..” (Those cell calls were made from a Hanger by innocent people-except for the handlers-who thought that they were participating in a drill )..That NO 767 crashed in Shanksville ( “didn’t find any bodies” no luggage, no wings, no engine..etc ) or @ the Pentagon…If you still believe the Official Version then you’re a worthless jack-ass..The worst R the folks like Scott Horton @ who knew better but played the role of Gate-Keeper/Protector of the Myth very early on.

  17. augusto says:

    Oh, yeah?
    but the planes were caught on camera … whilst the one striking the Pentagon was not.
    very convenient.

  18. augusto says:

    Mr Bornfree, from the land of the Brave…
    yes, you are right.
    The two towers plus BLDG 7 taken down by 19 smartie arabs who d sworn to destroy the United states of America.

  19. augusto says:

    and still one thing mr born in the land of the free: did that Silverstein been so smart as to pick up a the fake collapse explanation and include it in the Insurance package he demanded ? with the insurance company happy agreement?

  20. Sokrates says:

    To all:
    onebornfree is a jew, or a jewess

  21. Nanothermite panels?

    I’m curious why this explanation receives so little discussion?

    @Bill Jones

    Thank you for thinking. Much appreciated.
