. A NYPD Officer reported hearing an explosion then he heard the building collapse.
In this video you can clearly hear one of the explosions at the world trade center.
And in this interview with some New York City firefighters you can hear the explosives being used.

in a situation where there is the possibility of explosives in a building they do not send in personnel that are not experienced in E.O.D. But to defend the firefighters on that day a bit there were some communications problems as there always is when using radios in high rise buildings. Repeater systems were not being used properly and or not at all. Firefighters for the most part will try and evacuate a building of all civilians.
IF the fire captains really believed there were bombs in the buildings, what were the firefighters doing in there? I was once accused of calling the firefighters cowards for asking this question but it is a very legit question.
the one that strikes me as being able to be used correctly for the slicing that was done to each core column. This is sheet explosive or Series 2000 – RDX..
The collapse of the WTC buildings were attributed to a pancake effect of one floor falling hitting the floor below and the entire process continuing all the way down to ground level.
WTC 7 is the key to debunking the official story, and showing the truth that explosives were indeed used in the collapse of the world trade center. This building was not damaged by aircraft as the other two were. The damage that was caused was consistent with the other buildings at the world trade center that day however this was the only other building to collapse.
A lack of a solution to problem A does not mean that C is the right answer simply because it “fits the profile” in some aspects. I feel that those that would believe, and have you believe that explosives are the ONLY answer to the question at hand, which is “what caused the collapse of these buildings”, is a case of jumping to conclusions.
I have to respectfully disagree and here’s why. We don’t know exactly to what extent WTC7 was damaged. We honestly have no clue how badly it was damaged as the reports from the scene vary person to person. One guy says light damage and another guy says there’s a 20 story hole in the building. More importantly, no one was able to describe just how deep this hole in the side of the building went. There are no clear photos of the damaged side that I have seen. I have yet to get a clear picture of the damage from any video I have seen. And lastly, just like the falls of WTC 1&2, there’s simply NO evidence of any explosive devices being used.
Hopefully I have shown that the simple impact of the two aircraft into the building could not have possibly alone caused the collapse of the WTC towers 1 & 2. And thus another reason must be to blame for the cause of the collapse on that day. Physics dictate that the amount of damage that occurred to both towers was not enough to facilitate the complete collapse of both towers in the same exact manner.
Has the ASME, ASCE, or any of the other academic organizations published their dissent with the NIST findings? If they have, I am ignorant of this fact.
Now, some would argue that that is simply because the members of these organizations have either been threatened or paid off.
So to me at least, I find that all the things that so many find “obvious” are not necessarily that obvious. Most notably, where it comes to the use of explosives.
As to motive, I simply must ask, by show of hands if necessary, how many have read the Al Qaeda “handbook”?
Now, as to opportunity, there could be speculation of all kinds in regards to the 30hr power down and whether or not the job “could” have been completed during that time. And, ill admit, its possible; given enough men who all had very specific tasks laid out before hand. But each man you bring into the job is one more potential leak later on. For a crew of 10 to have done the job in 30hrs is a flight of fancy at best IMO. Also consider the fact that they would have plant a very large amount of explosives, run all the det cord or firing wires, at least in some cases cut into the drywall, replace said drywall, paint over it, clean up, and do all this in the dark in under 30hrs? possible but….far fetched?
why would you leave building 7 standing until many hours after the fall of the south tower when you had a perfect opportunity to disguise the fall of the building as just an effect of the collapse of the south tower?
