Their exit paths were purposely cut off. The doors to the roof area were locked and in all likelihood disabled with brass pin lock inserts.

Have any of you wondered why on 9-11 no helicopter rescue attempts were made to get people out of the twin towers? I know I did. It was one of the first thoughts that entered my mind while watching the buildings burn on television that morning. Why don’t they start getting people off from the rooftops? What were they expecting, that firefighters after climbing up 100 stories — gear and all — would be able to carry those down who were too injured to walk on their own?
Of course not. The brutal truth is, those people ‘needed to die’. Everyone in the upper floors would have witnessed that there were no planes. And they would have seen all sorts of other ‘oddities’ (explosives going off, etc.). Their exit paths were purposely cut off. The doors to the roof area were locked and in all likelihood disabled with brass pin lock inserts. Their downward escape routes were deliberately smoke flooded. The planners of 9-11 needed to make sure no one would live to tell what they really saw.
9-11 happened in New York City, not Podunk USA. There would have been plenty of helicopter capacity available. Certainly there were Sikorsky Sea Dragons somewhere nearby. Those puppies can haul some cargo. Ten flights and everyone would have been off. No, none of this happened. Why not? Because it wasn’t supposed to, that’s way.

1. They could not land.
— They sure were! And knocking them down was not an option?
2. The doors to the roof were locked
3. The FDNY and NYPD never coordinated on HOW to perform the rescue after they decided to jointly work after the 93 bombing.
— Pilots? What pilots? It doesn’t matter who reported what — we all can see that nothing was ‘tilting’.
4. The pilots reported 'tilting' of the towers.

These are all very good questions IMO. 102 Minutes sounds very interesting, will have to read. I do have one point, though: helicopters don't need to land in order to rescue people. They can throw down a rope and hoist people up with it. Someone should have had the keys to unlock those metal doors or they could have used a small amount of explosives to blow them open. So, why didn't they do that? Or was this because of interagency fighting?

But weren't the FEMA choppers in top for the drill??? I'm asking because that was my understanding.
Who knows, you can couch quarterback all you want.
The main thing is that we probably destroyed our own towers in a Pear Harbor attempt to mobilize ourselves against Iraq and Iran.
