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
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
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
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).

"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."
