It was destroyed by the mechanical forces of the collapse crashing down upon it and it lost its structural integrity in turn specifically because it was a box column, not a solid column.

Where did all this go to??
In some places, the sets of three parallel beams held together by steel spandrels, which framed the twin towers' windows and gave the buildings much of their strength, were twisted up like spring rolls. One 30-foot I-beam, made of steel six inches thick, was curved almost like a racetrack. Another huge I-beam had somehow been twisted so violently that it resembled a giant double helix. Mr. Kelman struggled for a comparison in the tangible world. ''It's like a licorice twist,'' he said finally.
Do you people really not have a clue ? There is tons of the stuff at hangar 17 JFK. Many items have been shipped round the country to form the basis of 9/11 memorials.

Every scrap, every speck of dust was sent there to be examined for clues, human remains and personal effects

Is it not possible that the explosives and such were located in the basement and that these examples were from one of the upper stories? Wouldn't that mean that this would be relatively untouched from the explosives and thermite that would have eaten away at the base of the building?
I mean, you knock out the bottom, the rest comes down too.... The entire building and its' structure do not need to be coated in their entirety in thermite and laced with explosives to get it to collapse... There would be examples of what you're suggesting in this case.
So, this doesn't prove anything, just that you're quick to jump the gun and call people liars.
Would you not say, looking at every video you can find, that the Towers collapsed from the impact points ?
