Within minutes of the crash, McKinney sent a radiological health inspector to check the site for any radiation sources. He reached Richard Borri, a senior scientist in the department’s office of Radiological Health, who like most people from DOH, was on his way to work when the first tower was hit.
While I was walking down Church Street, with all my instruments, I came within 1000 feet of the South Tower, and unfortunately the building came down,” says Borri, sounding every bit the unruffled scientist. “It’s a good thing I walked slowly.”

Further, the presence of elements such as Barium and Strontium, Thorium and Uranium, also strongly suggest a nuclear event.
Barium, classified as a metal, is number 56 on the periodic table. Ba is typically found in the raw materials, particularly limestone or clay. In some instances, barium can also be found in fuels, such as coal, at levels up to 24.5 ppm (Bhatty 2004).
Because barium is not a volatile metal, it is generally incorporated into the clinker when introduced into the kiln.
Strontium is the 38th element and a metal. The presence of Sr is not uncommon in the raw materials, particularly in CaCO3 sources, such as limestone (Bhatty 2004). The concentrations are not especially high, however.
Because Sr is not volatile, it is generally trapped in the clinker, where it would not be uncommon to find strontium at levels on the order of 0.5 percent by weight
Burning coal in boilers to create steam for power generation and industrial applications produces a number of combustion residuals. Naturally radioactive materials that were in the coal mostly end up in fly ash, bottom ash and boiler slag. These residuals are called TENORM--Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials--because burning removes the coal's organic constituents, concentrating the trace amounts of naturally occurring radionuclides:
their radioactive decay products including radium. (The amount radium in coal can vary by more than two orders of magnitude depending upon the type of coal and where it was mined.)
About 80 to 90 percent of fly ash, bottom ash and boiler slag is non-radioactive minerals, typically silicon, aluminum, iron and calcium.
You should be, especially since a number of countries around the world had issued warnings to the United States about OBL and al-Qaeda in the weeks and months prior to the 9/11 attack.
A greater blunder would be listening to your absurd and unrealistic claims.
It appears you are one of those posters who must attack somebody in order to post. Here, Gordon Duff, there Balsamo, and elsewhere Gage. It seems that's all you have.
Okay okay, now can you honestly say you don't understand how I'm going to
view that? Or do you really believe willful ignorance is a defense? Oh wait....
I am certainly no expert, but I know enough to observe that a Geiger Counter, probably what your guys were using, detects only certain types of radiation, not ALL types of radiation.

The more compelling evidence is the view from above--hot spots in several places at WTC observed from satellites overhead.
Queensbury warehouse fire still smoldering two days after start
QUEENSBURY — Firefighters were still dousing hot spots Monday at a blaze that began more than two days ago in warehouses rented by SCA Tissue. "It's the biggest fire in our history as far as a big commercial building," said West Glens Falls Fire Chief Mike Gordon.
Packing shed fire will continue to smolder for next few days
The fire that broke out earlier this week at the Bruce Church produce packing sheds will continue to smolder for the next couple of days and produce some light smoke, but there are no longer any flames coming from the site.
Hobby Store Still Smoldering After Saturday's Fire
Lynchburg, VA - The remains of The Collector's Lair were still smoldering on Monday. Officials still do not have a cause, but confirmed the fire started in the basement of the building. Investigators say it will probably continue smolder for days until they can get to the bottom of the 12 feet of rubble. "A little hard to see it go," said frequent shopper of "Collector's Lair," Chris Morris.
Locals like Morris have been stopping by to get one last look. "There's a lot of stuff in there. I'm not surprised it's burning this long," said Morris.
Officials say Caldwell plant fire smoldered for days
Firefighters work at the scene of a structure fire as a portion of the Land O’ Lakes Purina Feed building collapses in the background, Sunday evening in Caldwell.
Fire at Yuma-area packing shed to smolder for days
A fire that destroyed a group of produce packing sheds east of Yuma is expected to smolder for days as piles of burned cardboard cools and foam building insulation continues to send up smoke.

Once the fire had ended, the smoldering remains were still too hot for a survey of the damage to be completed for days.
And of course the molten metal that remained for about 3 months,...
Those phenomena simply could not have been caused by the NIST explanation of office fires and gravity.
Iron Burns . . . Slowly
Sometimes a big load of iron in a ship can get hot. The heat can even set other materials on fire.
That's because the iron is rusting, which means it is burning very, very slowly. Iron rusts in a chemical reaction called oxidation. That means the iron reacts with oxygen gas from the air. Oxidation is the chemical reaction that occurs when anything burns in air.
Like most oxidations, rusting gives off heat. But rusting is a slow process that gives off very little heat. It becomes a fire hazard only when a lot of iron is allowed to rust in a closed-up space.
In this case, all things considered, especially the speed with which so much forensic evidence was whisked away by the authorities, I cannot help but realize there is a substantial chance that any evidence gathered suggesting a nuclear event might also have been whisked away.

Ground Zero Workers File Billion-Dollar Health Lawsuit
MONDAY, Sept. 13 (HealthDayNews) -- Nearly three years to the day of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, lawyers for more than 800 "Ground Zero" rescue and clean-up workers announced Monday a billion-dollar class-action lawsuit against owners of the World Trade Center for exposing the workers to allegedly toxic conditions.
Contained in this "toxic waste pile," according to Sawyer and Worby, were:
* 200,000 pounds of lead from the estimated 50,000 personal computers in thousands of World Trade Center offices
mercury contained in the towers' more than half a million fluorescent lights dioxin from oil and fuel
* 2,000 tons of asbestos
* Benzene from more than 91,000 liters of burned jet fuel
* Cadmium, PCBs, and up to 2 million pounds of toxins known as polycystic aromatic hydrocarbons.
All of these contaminants have strong links to pulmonary, skin or immune system ailments, as well as cancer, Sawyer said. He predicted that long-term cancer rates among clean-up workers could rise to five to seven times the norm during the coming decades.
9/11 Ground Zero Workers Reach Claims Settlement
Asbestos and other harmful construction materials were used in the building’s construction during the 1970s, and when the towers collapsed all those materials were pulverized into airborne microbes; which were breathed in by every individual there for weeks and months. This is not to suggest that every single person there will develop cancers and deadly diseases, but the chances of such a disease have become more possible because of the exposure.
When airborne asbestos fibers are breathed into the lungs there is a risk of developing mesothelioma, a cancer affecting the lining of the lungs. Mesothelioma and other asbestos related illnesses are at risk in construction/demolition areas when proper safety practices are not taken seriously or ignored.
