Uranium isn't just going to be in granite in the building. It will also be in the sand used to make concrete. Manhattan island also happens to be
humungous sandpile, made from sediment coming down the Hudson river. The country rock from which this sediment comes is made up of granite, as well
as other primarily granitic rocks. It is not surprising that a relatively robust amount of Uranium is found in the composition of material analyzed
from the 9/11 debris.
And if there were "mini-nukes" used in 9/11, there would be other much more exotic, short-lived radioactive nuclides from the explosion. Yet there
has been no sign of such fallout. As I understand it, cities such as NYC have radioactivity monitoring. If there had been a nuclear blast, or
abnormally elevated radiation from a dirty bomb or bombs, this would have been detected.
As for the rapidity of people getting lung ailments, did you see the pictures of people with faces covered by silica dust and such? The intake was
way above the normal exposure levels for people working with asbestos and other related micro-particles. It should be no surprise that people --
particular first responders -- have gotten major lung elements. What is shocking is that in the days that followed 9/11 Christie Todd-Whitman and her
EPA said there were no environmental concerns in lower Manhattan.
As for explosives being used in 9/11 I have seen no good evidence for them; however, non-explosive, high-heat burning, steel cutting, thermite charges
do seem to be a possibility. In some 9/11 video I saw, there was a connection made between businessmen involved with the WTC and a company that made
thermite nails. It seems thermite nails would be a quick way to put in place a lot of thermite charges; however, I don't know what their heat of
combustion is or whether they would have to be wired to ignite.
But attempting to make a big thing about low-level amounts of uranium seems to be barking up the wrong tree, and undercutting one's own credibility
-- should you care to be taken seriously by those who are not conspiracy-theory extremists.
