In many cases, the fierce fires, the crushing debris and other factors prevented scientists from extracting usable DNA.

WORLD TRADE CENTER AFTERMATH: 1,100 victims of 9/11 attacks can't be identified from DNA
Medical examiner is only able to name about 1,600 people
The Pentagon had much more centralized area of fierce fire that that of the towers,but they identified those at the Pentagon,but not at the towers,which did not have many victims involved in fierce fire.
This isnt making sense to me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the WTC rubble continue to cook for days underground? Weren't there space photos that showed this?
How could human bodies or their DNA survive a molten pile of cooking rubble? To me, this fact that WTC cooked for days afterward is important and often glossed over.
molten pools of steel over a month later lying in the basement areas

I think most people understand your concern on Fierce Fire.
However, ........BIG DEAL.
What we are saying is that the two locations can't really be comparable in workability for someone to find good DNA. Their was a section blown out of the pentagon which is smaller and easier to investigate. Whearas, the WTCs were huge buildings that completly collapse to a heap of rubble. The pentigon most likely had it nailed down who was in the vicinity compared to who was missing. But, who in the heck knows who might of been walking around in (2) 1300 foot buildings. Then these buildings collapsed floor after floor after floor on top of each other. There must be a ton of things that could have effected the ability of people to identify DNA. .......Now you go out their and join the team and see if you can make a difference in identifying the remaining bodies.
I think this is the point that we are trying to make.

What the hell are you rambling about.
What point are you trying to make?
FACTS: 100+ Story is hit with a 747 which causes fairly major damage to the building and ignites a fire that burns for hours on hours eventually leading to its collapse.
YOUR POINT: ALIENS INCINERATED THE REMAINS AND THERE IS NO WAY 10000000DEGREE FAHRENHEIT FIRE AND A 100+ STORY BUILDING COLLAPSE COULD RUIN DNA TESTING.
COMMON SENSE: SMR IS SO HYPED UP ABOUT PROVING 9/11 IS SOME EVIL PLOT THAT HE DECIDED TO STOP MAKING SENSE.

I understand what the topic is about but I am making fun of you.
What is the big deal about them not being able to identify people with the DNA?
