I was simply asking a question. Do you believe the official story of everthing that happened on 911?
For the most part, yes. Are there some unanswered questions? Sure. There are ALWAYS some questions that just do not have answers. However, those
questions really do not affect the overall story of what happened that day.
Some questions that will never have complete answers..
1. The exact mechanics of how the buildings failed.
But, we know that inspections prior to 9/11 showed that the floor trusses of both towers were missing large amounts of the brittle fireproof coating
(much more brittle than the asbestos that was discontinued during construction. We know that the impact of the airliners severed quite a bit of the
exterior support of both towers. Remember, there were not any interior load bearing walls, it was the floor trusses running from the core supports to
the exterior wall. We know from photographic evidence that floors were sagging increasing the stress on the already damaged frame. We know that the
fires created from jet fuel, plastics (carpets and computers), chemicals (plenty of janitor rooms in both buildings) and floor tiles will burn well
over 1,000 degrees. We know that steel starts to lose its strength at the temps that were present that day.
We can infer that on both towers, the central core suffered heavy damage as well based on the facts that in one tower, all three stairwells were
impassable above the impact point and in the other tower, two of the staircases were damaged. All six of the staircases were within the cores of the
towers, their being damaged to the point they were impassible strongly suggests that the cores were damaged.
So, do we know exactly which beams-trusses gave way first? No. Does it really matter? Not really, because there is NEVER going to be an exact
answer. No one survived that was there to see the collapse from the inside as it started. Although, I would strongly advise against building another
tower that did not have interior load bearing walls. If that means you only go up 900 feet or so, so be it.
2. Whether or not Flight 77 was on the North or South side of the Citgo station?
Again, does not matter, we have enough evidence that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon that it really does not matter if it was north, south or right over
the Citgo station.
3. My only question about Flight 93, is, did the passengers manage to maim/kill a couple of the hijackers prior to the flight crashing?
Does it affect the story? No.
4. Just what damage occured when WTC 1 collapsed into WTC 7?
From all the witness statements about the exterior damage to 7 and the fact they could see a distinct lean to it, would suggest heavy damage. Again,
I would advise against the structure as built for the ConEd substation that was there. I would hate to think that just that one beam being damaged
would cause a collapse, but from the evidence we have....it did. So scratch that as a design.
Does any of the above change the story? No, but I can understand why some would prefer that it had to be Americans that planned and executed the
attack. Because if it wasnt Americans, then you must accept it was a dedicated bunch of Islamic fanatics that took the time to study us and find our
weaknesses. For some, that would be an exceptionally scary thought that we could be hurt that bad by....them.
