The more intelligent of the theorists soon come to realize that Hansel and Gretel have left breadcrumbs everywhere, in no discernible pattern. Thus, the inclination among some of the best to stop looking for the children and start looking for the Witch. The deeper one delves into the conspiracy literature, the more one is struck by the tendency of some theorists to look beyond the documents and the tangible evidence of government malfeasance or political conspiracy to more transcendental sources of power.
The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual

Once upon a time....
...there was a powerful country called America. America was supposed to be ruled by the many millions of people that lived there, but in truth, America was controlled by only a few, very rich, very, very, evil men.
Now these men wanted war (because they made ALOT of money off of war,) but they knew the American people would never go for it. So they looked around and decided to make a big, huge, fake an attack on America that ALL the people could see and all the people could be really mad
So they came up with a plan. They decided to find some really smart men to teach some really crazy men how to make an attack on America that would be really big. They decided to make the attack on two of the world's largest buildings.
So these smart men gave these crazy men the idea to fly BIG airplanes into the buildings and knock them down. But what they didn't expect was that they were many more crazy men, so they also decided to attack other buildings as well.
.....and all the rich, evil men lived happily ever-after
I'm sorry if you disagree, but I believe the jets hitting the buildings caused the imminent collapse due to structural failure of the floor joists and the plasticity of the system under the effects of excessive heat. In other words, it tucked in and then pancaked!
Funny thing about it also is we are all on the same side yet some feel compelled to segregate themselves. As it stands now, I think the entire conspiracy surrounding the 911 attack conspiracy is plain misdirection. While everyone is looking at the government and pointing fingers, they have room to orchestrate another plan unnoticed. A simple diversion, makes me sick to think it could be true.

I know where your going with this, but architectural liability insurance has limitations.
The field is always learning and what was done in the 60's(design) can't be assumed up to date in the year 2000. My daughters school burnt down this year from a cigarette thrown in the trash by a janitor. Due to fire code standards in the 60's when it was built the building was fine, but now in 2014 not even close by a long-shot!
Plus there are also breakdowns of liability. Architects hire engineers who design the frame and to do the structural analysis(wind loads, snow, kinetic, static, shear, etc.), the burden then falls on them. But the general contractors, steel erectors, steel mill and even steel producers can be pulled into it because if the steel is faulty at the start then blame just goes down the ladder. Then they can come back and say the concrete floor slabs were poured wrong or the fireproofing was defective. So many things go into the one system very rarely does it come out clean in the end.
It's a very tough issue to debate in normal circumstances but when faced with an event such as this, they will be in court for a hundred years and ultimately the burden of proof will be impossible to locate.
