I spent probably 30 minutes tops gathering quotes that I felt damning and finding sources to them. Feel free to add to this list but try to cite sources. Any expert witnesses, media reporters, and fireman accounts of that day are crucial. Hell, with this many eye witnesses, even OJ could be convicted.

I designed it for a 707 to hit it. The Boeing 707 has a fuel capacity comparable to the 767." - Lee Robertson
HARRIS: As a member of the team, and having such insight to how this building was constructed, could you believe that a plane could bring these buildings down?

SWIRSKY: No, as a matter of fact, one of the rationales of the structure of the building was that it would be built as a pipe. And that proved itself to work during the explosion of 1993, when a hole was brought into the building, and it survived. But somehow, nobody could foresee anything like (Tuesday's incident).

SWIRSKY: I imagine, when I saw the pictures of the implosion of the building, it looks like the fuel must have leaked right to the core of the building, and from there it was the massive explosion that caused the building to collapse. So it was something completely unforeseen, so far as the design criteria was (concerned). (van romero's creds) (link to article)
"My opinion is, based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center there were some explosive devices inside the buildings that caused the towers to collapse," Romero said.
"It would be difficult for something from the plane to trigger an event like that," Romero said
"One of the things terrorist events are noted for is a diversionary attack and secondary device," Romero said. (cred)

shortly after the original interview -- "Certainly the fire is what caused the building to fail," said Van Romero, a vice president at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.

Louie Cacchioli -- "I was taking firefighters up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate workers. On the last trip up a bomb went off. We think there were bombs set in the building." in people magazine

"The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door -- this intense grid -- and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting".
Frank A. Demartini -

“Floor by floor it started popping out… It was as if they had detonators planted to take down a building.

“I spoke with some police officials moments ago, Chris, and they told me they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Center, aside from the one that may have been caused by the impact of the plane with the building, may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device in it.” -- Rick Sanchez - MSNBC

“It sounded like a bomb and the lights went on and off,” said Sanchez in the tape recording. “We started to walk to the exit and a huge ball of fire went through the freight elevator. The hot air from the ball of fire dropped Chino to the floor and my hair got burned,” said Sanchez in the tape recording. “The room then got full of smoke and I remember saying out loud ‘I believe it was a bomb that blew up inside the building.’

"all the sudden it sounded like gunfire you know; bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. And then all the sudden... 3 big explosions."

How could you forget good ol' Larry's?

"I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse."


A clean-up worker from the same documentary:

"... we're getting ready to pull the building six."


"... I saw an airplane hit the tower -- the TV was obviously on, and I use to fly myself, and I said, "There's one terrible pilot." And I said, "It must have been a horrible accident." - George Bush

The above quote alone proves that George Bush is either lying about 9/11, had a special camera rigged up to watch the first plane hit, or else is extremely senile and in bad mental condition.

Touche, I did forget about Larry.

"Interviews with a handful of members of the team, which includes some of the nation's most respected engineers, also uncovered complaints that they had at various times been shackled with bureaucratic restrictions that prevented them from interviewing witnesses, examining the disaster site and requesting crucial information like recorded distress calls to the police and fire departments..."

"This is almost the dream team of engineers in the country working on this, and our hands are tied," said one team member who asked not to be identified. Members have been threatened with dismissal for speaking to the press. "FEMA is controlling everything," the team member said.

"I find the speed with which important evidence has been removed and recycled to be appalling."

Officials in the mayor's office declined to reply to written and oral requests for comment over a three- day period about who decided to recycle the steel and the concern that the decision might be handicapping the investigation.."

China Radio International’s English Edition

Notice in the article this is said:

Mr. Schumer said he supported a new investigation ''not so much to find blame''

Why go out of the way to say that?

William Rodriguez:

"At 8.30 I was at the basement talking to one of the supervisors, and at 8.45 we hear an explosion, a huge explosion, and it came from under our feet"

"so I felt a huge explosions and when I was going to verbalize it was when I heard the impact on the top of the building."

Could you maybe keep track of the quotes and place them in the first post ? Makes it easier to read/follow.

I started a different thread so I could update it. I think if I don't post on it, I should be able to continue updated the original post.
