I seriously doubt it was carried out anything like that. Towers 1 & 2 were far from conventional demolitions. There are similarities, but over all,
totally alien collapses to anything
else, CD or "natural" or what have you. WTC7's collapse was more conventional and an implosion, but even
it likely involved unconventional explosives.
Commercial demolition services, to my knowledge, use only explosives that have been around for decades, if not a century or more. TNT, C4, PETN, etc.,
and just recently
have they started employing thermite-based charges, called "thermate", which is itself very old technology.
The forces we're dealing with here, though, wouldn't even have to touch that stuff. We're likely talking about advanced US military explosives, or
some other high-tech weaponry brought in through an agency such as the CIA or Mossad (Israel's military is far from something to shake a stick at,
too). What would be more likely would be planting a single device per floor that simply ripped out from the core outwards, or maybe a few per floor,
or every other floor, or whatever was needed, and these devices were probably very small.
If you look up "red mercury" as one example of rumors the public is getting about what's going on behind the scenes with our weapons development,
you'll see how easily this could be done. Fusion weapons, for example, could have been used without the need of fission, whereas in earlier decades
fission was needed and created very messy and extremely powerful nuclear explosions. Now if they have a way of generating the heat and pressure
without fission, then they have a bomb that can be the size of a baseball (according to at least one source, a Russian scientist if I'm not
mistaken), and for which the energy yield can be set for a magnitude that would be impossible otherwise (this is what the "red mercury" thing was
about, coming from the Russians, and subsequently mocked and then investigated by Los Alamos for some years -- not to say this is the only means of
producing a pure fusion device, or that any number of other high-tech explosives could have also been used).
Explosives utilizing massive electrical forces, or great electrical potential (voltage) differences, creating a cloud of massive voltage in the same
way an FAE disperses an air/gas cloud, have also been discussed. What is effectively created is an area (in the form of the cloud, whether aerosol or
voltage or whatever anyone may come up with) in which the explosive blast can travel farther, faster, and do more damage along the way. There was an
OKC survivor that said s/he felt significant static electricity, and had their hair stand on end, etc., just before the bomb went off, and others
compared it to a clap of thunder. WTC7 coming down was also reported by at least one witness as starting with what sounded like a loud clap of
There were 2 or 3 devices removed from inside
of the Murrah Federal Building that did not detonate. This was reported by FEMA and the Army,
among other credible sources. One witness described a removed device as looking like a 5-gallon drum, and it was olive drab in color. Look at the
damage at OKC and imagine two or three more devices going off, assuming the majority of the damage was from internal explosives anyway (of which there
is also evidence). There are some similarities between the Murrah Federal Building and WTC7.
These are the kinds of devices I have to consider, because I'm not naive enough to believe that all of the US's military technology is in public
domain. I'm not naive enough to believe they would never use these weapons as a part of a psy-op if they so had access. It's an unknown, sure, and
probably can never be proven by science as we know it today, but I think the chances of high-tech devices like the above being used are pretty damned
good, as I think the chances of them existing are pretty damned good, and the chances of the towers being demolished pretty damned good just from
several basic physics issues. They wouldn't need or use C4, TNT, etc., which you would
have to take a lot of time out to place.
And as someone else just pointed out, I think, you can do this all by remote control, no wires. Tesla invented remote control over 100 years ago.
It's not new tech, either. Same way your remote control works, just with added security measures no doubt.
