first of all, thank GOD someone finally says this. ive said it but im a 'govt agent' so it doesnt matter what i say. everytime i see somene
posting about 'squibs' i wanna gouge out my own eyes
next, this is proof of nothing. how can an overpressure from an explosive ONLY punch out one window in each row (remember, even weak explosives
detonate at 24000ft/s) but then, punch out the EXACT SAME window on each floor. if they had been random windows on each floor i 'may' have conceded
that those were just the weakest windows on each floor...but i doubt it.
the difference between explosive overpressure and air pressure finding the path of least resistance is in the speed the pressure is applied. an
explosive with enough force to bust any windows will likely bust several, not just one. rapidly building air pressure will find the weakest one and
that one will fail first, coupled wiht frames shifting from a collapsing building. but this video doesnt show air overpressure either in my opinion.
its likely that air overpressure wouldnt be able to bust that many windows on subsequent floors in rapid succession like that either.
its likely that as the building started to fall that corder got torqued and shattered them outwards like that. glass will flex to a point then
shatter pretty violently. i think thats what we are seeing here.
for an explosive to bust out windows like that, you need a lot of it. know what you get with a lot of explosives? or enough to bust out windows from
overpressure anyway? you get a blast that they'd have haerd in new jersey and NO questions about whether or not there were explosives in the
building. everyone would know there was.
so to answer the original question. no, this isnt a smoking gun. its not even a very good piece of circumstantial evidence.
