First, thermite can be an explosive when ground down to nano particle levels, and the type found was high grade military type thermite in nano
...in which case Ventura lied AGAIN. Wht they showed us was an application of conventional thermite. Painting such a thin coating of explosives in
the way they illustrated in their hypothesis wouldv'e made a singe mark on the columns, but that's about it. What do you think the WTC was built
out of, cardboard tubes out of rolls of toilet paper?
Besides, Jones did NOT find nanothermite. He found aluminum and iron particles in the dust, which he interprets as being remnants of explosives on
his own. There were lots of all kinds of trace elements found in the dust, rather than just aluminum and iron. They even found tritium and cobalt,
which is being used by characters like Ed Ward to "prove" the towers were brought down by mini-nukes.
Secondly, they didn't have to paint the beams to weaken the building, all they had to do was to burn the bolt heads. And if you look at many
of the photos of the world trade center debris, you will see that most of the beams are missing their bolts, and not only that, but the holes the
bolts came out of don't look twisted or torn on most, but as if the bolts were neatly removed.
I've seen many photos of the steel, yes. They all show the bolts were broken. The steel also shows signs of being snapped like twigs and having
been torn like paper. There are NO signs of any steel destroyed from being cut by thermite. Not one.
Thirdly, most of the steel was not examined, most of it was shipped directly to a dumping site and then, later was sent over seas. Many people
complained about the debris not getting examined better, you can find those news articles all over the net.
Not true. Every scrap of steel recovered was delivered directly to a field in Fresh Kill, Staten Island (my bad for saying it was in NJ) and was
painstakingly sorted out. It was only after sorting that it was shipped out overseas. Besides, it's ridiculous to say all the steel was destroyed
and then in the same breath turn around and admit important pieces of steel that were earmarked to be saved are being stored at hanger 17 at JFK.
Ventura misrepresented the facts AGAIN.
Lastly, the air force was on stand down mode because they were doing training exercises that day dealing with air planes being hijacked.
I already posted a link to CNN footage that showed F-15 fighters over NYC minutes after the attack, so your interpretation is entirely moot.
