Just have to wait for it to collapse neatly into it's own footprint. Hope they pull out the firemen in time.
Of course, the "truthers" don't actually want to consider common sense, reality, or actual truth, most of them just want to have their paranoid delusions supported by YouTube propaganda videos by the likes of Infowars.
[Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Newcastle, John Knapton] told BBC News Online: "The world trade centre was designed to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707, but that was unusual... we are trying to discover why they [ the towers ] collapsed and what needs doing to rebuild them."
"The buildings survived the impact and the explosion but not the fire, and that is the problem."
"The 35 tonnes of aviation fuel will have melted the steel... all that can be done is to place fire resistant material around the steel and delay the collapse by keeping the steel cool for longer."
Hyman Brown, a University of Colorado civil engineering professor and the Trade Center's construction manager [sic], speculated that flames fuelled by thousands of litres of aviation fuel melted steel supports.
"This building would have stood had a plane or a force caused by a plane smashed into it," he said. "But steel melts, and 90,850 litres of aviation fluid melted the steel. Nothing is designed or will be designed to withstand that fire."
Blacksmiths work by heating pieces of wrought iron or steel until the metal becomes soft enough for shaping with hand tools, such as a hammer, anvil and chisel. Heating generally takes place in a forge fueled by propane, natural gas, coal, charcoal, coke or oil.

C'mon, you know it's going to collapse.
It's funny how 9/11 agenda people always make comments or comparisons that make no sense logically.
Oh look a tall building on fire, it's exactly the same as the Towers..
