Yes, you can see squibs coming out of the buildings, but do you think there were extra terrorists that could have made it inside to the key structures to bring it down like it did and commit suicide to cause those squibs? Just a thought, because I do not know the security of the place.

It is possible but how would they know what to do? In most countries, demolishing tall skyscrapers via explosives is not a common skill if used at all. How would terrorists know what to do unless they were told by insiders or handlers?'

they could be helped by fellow agents who are structural engineers. call the idea crazy but KSM was a mechanical engineer. no reason to doubt they could have consulted other al qaeda people with structural engineering knowledge, or what have you.

just a hypo.

They would need to send in a hell of a lot of guys if each squib represents only one of them detonating himself. Those structures were massive.

I think the sheer numbers of people needed, the exact position and the timing of each explosive going off takes it out of the question.

i read on another post not so long ago about them being used to block the stairs by blowing up explosives to stop people escaping, that sounds more plausable.

It would be absurb to assume they'd go through the trouble to have people blow up individually when a car bomb couldn't even take down the WTC.. there would be a pointless waste of life in that and effort.

Squibs are something I can't explain but it is not air pressure. Not when you have squibs sooo far below the collapse zone. Air pressure can't pressurize that far down successfully and hahaha just 1 window.

WCIP gave a good post a while back on this.

Just type in squibs world trade center in keywords.
