Strange how I never heard one single Truther on ATS or even sooper smrt Richard Gage and his fellow justice team members ever bother to mention or suspect subpaar fireproofing of the WTC as a likely cause.
Here is what Bill Manning said:
The structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers. Rather, theory has it, the subsequent contents fires attacking the questionably fireproofed lightweight trusses and load-bearing columns directly caused the collapses in an alarmingly short time. Of course, in light of there being no real evidence thus far produced, this could remain just unexplored theory.
The frequency of published and unpublished reports raising questions about the steel fireproofing and other fire protection elements in the buildings, as well as their design and construction, is on the rise. The builders and owners of the World Trade Center property, the Port Authority of New York-New Jersey, a governmental agency that operates in an accountability vacuum beyond the reach of local fire and building codes, has denied charges that the buildings' fire protection or construction components were substandard but has refused to cooperate with requests for documentation supporting its contentions.
(from the "Selling Out the Investigation" article I linked earlier. )
You want a REAL conspiracy? Here you go. THIS should be on the front page of A&Efor9/11T. But it is strangely absent. Pssh. Crappy fireproofing causing WTC destruction and the PA, engineers, and builders covering it up and hiding it? Naw, that is too stupid. Let's focus more on special explosives and magical thermites and missiles.
