"My story was never mentioned in the final report and I felt like I was being put on trial in a court room. They were trying to twist my words and make the story fit only what they wanted to hear" [PDF download] -Firefighter Louie Cacchioli
"When I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down, ... I saw low-level flashes ... I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down ... You know like when they demolish a building, how when they blow up a building, when it falls down? That's what I thought I saw." - NYFD Assistant Fire Commissioner Stephen Gregory
“It was like a professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop'." - NYC Paramedic Daniel Rivera
"It was as if as if they had detonated ... as if they had planned to take down a building, boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom " - NYFD Captain Dennis Tardio
"I was taking firefighters up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate workers. On the last trip up a bomb went off. We think there were bombs set in the building." - NYFD Firefighter Louie Cacchioli
“There was just an explosion in the south tower. It seemed like on television when they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way around like a belt, all these explosions.” - NYFD Firefighter Richard Banaciski
"It almost sounded like bombs going off, like boom, boom, boom, like seven or eight" - NYFD Firefighter Thomas Turilli
"Heard explosions coming from . . . the south tower . . . There were about ten explosions. . . . We then realized the building started to come down" - NYFD Firefighter Craig Carlson
"It actually gave at a lower floor, not the floor where the plane hit. . . . We originally had thought there was like an internal detonation, explosives, because it went in succession, boom, boom, boom, boom, and then the tower came down" - NYFD Firefighter Edward Cachia
"Somewhere around the middle . . . there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode ... With each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building" - NYFD Captain Karin Deshore
"A debate began to rage because . . . many people had felt that possibly explosives had taken out 2 World Trade" - NYFD Firefighter Christopher Feny

I wasn't suggesting that at all. I was just saying that the metal didn't vaporize during the collapse. I've seen it proved many times that the collapse was a number of seconds slower than free-fall.

Talking to members of the FDNY that survived that day. Most of them get really snipy about their statements being taken out of context. Not to mention, not ONE of them mentioned bombs or explosives in their official statements.
NY Times & Victims Family FOIA Request making Suppressed Firemen Statements public: A rich vein of city records from Sept. 11, including more than 12,000 pages of oral histories rendered in the voices of 503 firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians, was made public 8/12/05.

First of all I think there is a mountain load of evidence indicating 9/11 was a cover up. With that said, even if there were no evidence, shouldn't you give them credit for sticking to their story even without any facts? And if they have no facts, are nonsense, then why would you care? It's like being worried about people who believe aliens will destroy humanity. If it happens, we should thank them for trying to warn us, if not, what harm are they doing other than trying to scare some people who should know better anyways.edit on 7-10-2010 by filosophia because: have a nice day!

I am SO sorry. I actually thought you had a clue.
Based upon your questions, I realize I can't help you. Only YOU can help yourself! What a concept!
Put down the flag for a little while and read. If you ask the right questions, I will bless you with a response.
(Because you are special, I just KNOW it!)

It was also a fact that we now know "Silverstein Wanted To Demolish Building 7 On 9/11"
It was a fact that he was “on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building.”
It was also a fact that the fire department was heard saying: “It’s blowin’ boy.” … “Keep your eye on that building, it’ll be coming down soon.” … “The building is about to blow up, move it back.” … “Here we are walking back. There’s a building, about to blow up…”
