It didn't have to be done all at once. Government operations are usualy planned well ahead of the operation.
With a bush on the board of the company supplying security and a building owner, silverstein, in on the plan it wouldn't be that difficult to by-pass security.
Power down the week before 9-11, doing the finishing touches.

And Vushta, no I don't believe knowing how it was done is that relevant. You have to admit it could have been done right?
It's not an impossiblity...
You do believe there are pyramids in Egypt right? Do you know how they got there?
See my point?

Well no. I don't admit it could have been done. Not at all. I'm claiming it to be an impossibility.
Yes the pyraminds are there. Do I know how they got there? Yes. They were built and I'm sure hundreds of thousands of people saw it being done.
Are you admitting that you can't even imagine how it was done..but you're convinced it was?
Several individuals reported that they witnessed an explosion just before one of the towers collapsed. Battalion Chief John Sudnik said: “we heard . . . what sounded like a loud explosion and looked up and I saw tower two start coming down” (NYT, Sudnick, p. 4).
Several people reported multiple explosions. Paramedic Kevin Darnowski said: "I heard three explosions, and then . . . tower two started to come down” (NYT, Darnowski, p. 8).
Firefighter Thomas Turilli said, “it almost sounded like bombs going off, like boom, boom, boom, like seven or eight" (NYT, Turilli, p. 4).
Craig Carlsen said that he and other firefighters “heard explosions coming from . . . the south tower. . . . There were about ten explosions. . . . We then realized the building started to come down” (NYT, Carlsen, pp. 5-6).
Firefighter Joseph Meola said, “it looked like the building was blowing out on all four sides. We actually heard the pops" (NYT, Meola, p. 5).
Paramedic Daniel Rivera also mentioned “pops.” Asked how he knew that the south tower was coming down, he said:
It was a frigging noise. At first I thought it was—do you ever see professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'? . . . I thought it was that. (NYT, Rivera, p. 9)

You are making the false assumption that pulling referred to controlled demolition, it does not. What they were speaking of was the fire company that was making preliminary steps into WTC 7. Pull it, meant pull the fire company out of the building. Nothing more, nothing less.

ANOK, if you had read Swampfox's post you would see that he posted links to his proof (being the eyewitness accounts of the firefighters at the scene).
Engineers from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation investigated oil contamination in the debris of WTC 7. Their principal interest was directed to the various oils involved in the Con Ed equipment. However, they reported the following findings on fuel oil: "In addition to Con Ed's oil, there was a maximum loss of 12,000 gallons of diesel from two underground storage tanks registered as 7WTC." To date, the NY State Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DEC have recovered approximately 20,000 gallons from the other two intact 11,600-gallon underground fuel oil storage tanks at WTC 7.
It is worth emphasizing that 20,000 gallons (of a maximum of 23,200 gallons) where recovered intact from the two 12,000-gallon Silverstein tanks. So, it is probable that the 20,000 gallons recovered was all of the oil in the tanks at that time. Since the oil in the Silverstein tanks survived, we can surmise that there was no fire on the ground floor.
Concrete floor slabs provided vertical compartmentalization to limit fire and smoke spread between floors (see Figure 5-11). Architectural drawings indicate that the space between the edge of the concrete floor slab and curtain wall, which ranged from 2 to 10 inches, was to be filled with fire-stopping material.

So if I understand it correctly, it's not important whether the rigging of the buildings with explosives for a CD was possible? Or to know how it would be possible? I understand, it could ruin a good CT, isn't it?
So during a power off in ONE tower (and not even in the entire tower) they've managed to rig BOTH towers and a WTC7?
