The Tower: The firefighters themselves didn't know about the collapse of the towers... not even sure if the chief even got that memo. No fire chief could send his guys to death, period. The mayor did know about it way ahead of time. The reason this is true is because he dismissed a request a month prior for an upgraded radio system for the firefighters. The communication system they had failed most of the time and had very spotty coverage in the main downtown area due to all the communication/cell phone towers. So no radio communication was happening.

As for the actual construction of the tower itself: It was built around a center pillar that could withstand a 4-5 earthquake. When a building collapses, it DOES NOT implode on itself like the towers did. It will always fall the direction it's leaning. Some of the few firefighters that actually made it out said they heard explosions just prior to the first tower coming down. So many other things I have videos and pictures of about the towers that you can't find anymore pretty much point to the fact terrorists didn't do this.

Now the pentagon is just funny that they say a plane hit it. To many questions about this one that really have no right answers. How is it that one of the most secure locations in all of America has no video of ANYTHING flying in, how the only video is from a gas station across the street. And it only caught a 1 second image of what looked like a fire ball. The camera was a 3 sec delay and only caught 1 image of whatever hit the pentagon. And how can a 16x16 aircraft going 200 mph make a 12x12 hole and only go into the building 10 feet, leaving no trail behind it and not disturbing any of the construction materials around it.

The Naudet brothers were French journalists who accompanied NYC firefighters as they acted and reacted during the 9/11 attack, and their video specifically showed the NYFD had no real applicable problems in communications coverage with their radios. The damned fool conspiracy website you got that drivel from is pulling your leg.

I am only going to comment on one part of your post, which is this:


The mayor did know about it way ahead of time. The reason this is true is because he dismissed a request a month prior for an upgraded radio system for the firefighters.


Now come on. Mayors, governors, Congressmen make stupid, cheap, moronic decisions all the time. They make these decisions in favor of whoever is bribing them and to hell with public safety. Or maybe they do it for other reasons, because they think it's wasteful. Or some person they hired recommended it.

But to say that just because a Mayor canceled some high-tech walkie talkie program that means he automatically had foreknowledge of 9/11 is NOT EVIDENCE. It's a ludicrous leap of illogic of no evidentiary value whatsoever. It is a frankly useless statement that only undermines the rest of your contentions.

I would urge you to follow up on your questions and learn more about the issues that interest you about 9/11. Don't listen to people who question your intelligence. Questioning your facts is OK.


NIST says about one third of the fire department radio transmissions were not complete or not understandable.[27]


That's a quote from an imformative Wikipedia article about communication problems on 9/11 which can be found here.

en.wikipedia.org...-26

There were problems, but most of the problems were caused by overlapping systems of communications and overloaded systems of communications. Would the new system nixed by the mayor have made things easier and clearer for every one? Maybe.

Was lack of communication in many cases an important factor with regard to saving lives. Undoubtedly.

Was the communications issue an indicator of an "inside job". Only in the sense that "what the mayor new when" might be of interest.

The content of radio communications that were successfully received is of great interest to proponents of an inside job though, in connection with extent of fire observed, etc. There are recordings of large numbers of radio transmissions.

After encountering Jim Fetzer, on numerous sites I have to say that he is one of the single worst researchers I have come across. The whole 'no planes' theory is ludicrous. I think this where its important to question your facts. Fetzer does not in any way shape or form. Have any self discernment or reflection.

If you are not questioning your sources and so fourth your not being a good researcher. The baloney, Fetzer writes about the assassination of Kennedy is also equally awful. Again there is very little questioning of his own evidence and its extremely arrogant. In all honesty, James Fetzer is arguably the single worst JFK and 9/11 researcher anyone could come across and he should be totally and utterly ignored by any sane person.

Go ahead, check out his work. In particularly the lunacy he has unleashed on the JFK section of John Simkins Education Forum. If you are researching anything conspiratorial its a very fine balance of keeping an open mind but not running off into the la la land. Where you will find King La La himself.
