When considering the possibility that the Twin Towers were brought down by explosives there is an interesting variation which is worth considering: What if the Twin Towers were designed — or re-engineered — so that they could be destroyed in a controlled demolition if circumstances required?
What circumstances might lead to an order to demolish the Twin Towers? A situation in which it was believed that they were in danger of collapsing in an uncontrolled manner and falling onto the buildings surrounding them in Manhattan's financial district. In such a case, it might be held, better to demolish one or both of the towers in a controlled manner so as to minimize death and destruction in the surrounding area.
Video Evidence of Controlled Demolition
Dr.Mark Heath's Demolition Squibs
"While the news footage of the collapses showed the facts, amateur video has shown the reality of what it was like to be there. After Dr. Mark Heath heard the first airplane explosions, he ventured toward the site to offer assistance, camcorder in hand and recording. He was asking a bystander where medical assistance might be needed when a noise above tempted the camcorder upward. As an enormous cloud of gray dust and debris descended, all Dr. Heath and the people around him could do was run until the cloud engulfed their position. Heath, constantly narrating for what sounded as if it might be posterity, described how broad daylight had turned to complete darkness"
First look at this video (a wmv file, playable in Windows Media Player) of a controlled demolition and observe clouds of debris ejected horizontally by explosions placed at several levels in the building to be demolished Now look at this video of the North Tower collapsing. Two of these can be seen clearly before the collapse descends beneath the viewframe.

It's pretty obvious, just from the editors' note on the first page, that they set out, not to find the truth, but to debunk conspiracy theories.
Truth and debunking go hand-in-hand or not? Which was truth: the conspiracy theories about the WTC and the Pentagon or was it the debunking of those prevailing conspiracy theories?

Derrick Grimmer - one of the SPINE "scientists." He is a perennial candidate for every possible elected office in Iowa. Has never won. Maybe it's because his major platform is legalization of marijuana
