I find another thing which was very strange... If the first tower was struck why wouldn't they evacuate the second tower knowing there would be a chance that that tower might be hit too. instead they told everyone to return to the tower ... WHY ? because if the planes crashed into the tower and there was no one in it, then whats the point ? other likely targets in Washington DC and the Sear towers in Chicago were evacuated... so why not the other tower ? not evacuating the second tower just seems a very very stupid.

You need to consider what time the other evacuations were issued.

I will say what will certainly be said anyway ... they had no way of knowing there was going to be another strike. It was considered a fluke ... in fact, a lot of reports said it was a small cessna, which is another thread entirely.

So ... until the second plane hit, there wasn't much cause for alarm for the people in theory.

What that doesn't account for is someone having prior knowledge ... and what it proves is, the damage and fire was so minimal to the first tower after the first strike, there was no reason to believe it would collapse in about an hour ... that is something to ponder there ...

It's called "Shelter In Place".

The first strike was initially thought to be an accident, as previously stated.

There was, at the time, no reason to suspect that the second tower was under any threat.

Since the extent of the damage to the first tower was not yet known, it was safer to keep the occupants of the second tower in place. Immediate evacuation could have exposed them, needlessly, to falling debris from the first tower, interfered with the arrival of emergency personnell and equipment, and potentially exposed the evacuees to the risk of an unpredictable collapse of the first tower.

Of course, it assumes that no one has targeted your shelter for attack.

Well there ya go. More proof that there were no planes at the WTC.

The locals, the ones who would have been first to know if a plane had hit, never saw anything of the kind. The whole notion of aircraft hitting the twin towers was only later introduced by the news media. Slowly at first, by mentioning a small Cesssna type plane or ‘something’ they ‘eased us’ into believing that that’s what happened.

The local authorities at the middle-management level weren’t part of the 9-11 cabal. They had ‘no idea’ what was (supposed to be) going on. All they observed is what actually occurred, small explosions knocking holes in the upper floors followed by (machine-made) clouds of smoke wafting out. It took a while for them to be briefed/brainwashed on what was unfolding, that this was a ‘terrorist’ attack.

Because nobody at the time knew it anything but an accident. Had no
idea the second plane was 15 minutes out. In the South Tower only
the people facing the North Tower had any idea of what had happened
Many of them "self evacuated" only to be faced with confusing
messages from WTC Fire Control to return. Evacuating the South
Tower at this time would have put thousands of people on the
plaza and streets outside the building exposed to falling debris from
the North Tower and interferring with arriving fire, EMS and police units.

As for Wizard - I know several people who were on the street outside
WTC 7 who watched the aircraft impact....

reply to post by thedman

Sure you know people who watched the plane hit — live on tv! If you really do personally know some who saw it with their own two eyes, please, please have them describe their accounts here on ATS. I’m begging you. Then, and maybe then we can get to the bottom of this.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the south tower was hit from the SOUTH, the opposite side as the north tower. UA175 came from Boston, MA too, which is north of New York City. Why the loop? Why the ‘detour’ in flight pattern? Was it because the fewest cameras would have been filming that side of the building, being focused on the north side of the north tower instead?

Watching on Live TV! ??? What part of standing in street next to WTC 7
(where they worked ) looking up and watching American 11 slam into
the building do you not understand!!! You said that none of the locals
witnessed the impacts and that it was made up ! Try researching accounts
of 9/11 - many people on the street outside the building saw the aircraft

As for United 175 - I was working at Bayway oil refinery in Linden NJ
the people on the floors above me were looking out windows (having
just heard on radio of first plane impact) and saw United 175 plough
into building. My boss came downstairs and told us what they had just

Below is plot of flight path of United 175 - it did not as per your
insane raving came up from the south as part of some plot. It was
puposely flown that way by the hijackers to take advantage of visual

United Airlines Flight 175

UAL Flight 175 took off from Boston’s Logan Airport at 7:58. Its planned route was south-west to northwestern New Jersey, then a gentle right turn to follow a more westerly course towards Los Angeles International Airport. The plane followed this route until the point where it was to bear right; instead, it turned left about 45 degrees to travel southwards towards central New Jersey, then made a sharp left over Middlesex County to approach New York Harbor from the south. This plane hit the South Tower of the World Trade Center at about 9:05 AM.
Note that Flight 175's legitimate pilots must have been in control until about the time the plane crossed the northern New Jersey border; up to this time the plane had followed its planned route, including turns that the hijackers would not have had the navigational skills to make (and which were not essential in order to fulfill their mission). Also, note that the hijack did not occur until a point at which a passenger on the left side of the plane would have had a clear view of the Twin Towers. From this point on, it was easy to navigate the airplane by this obvious landmark – and target.

The hijackers of this flight clearly knew that its route would take it within about 50 miles of Manhattan – close enough to use the Twin Towers as a visual landmark. Thus, they could sit back and wait until they had a clear view of their target. One obvious conclusion is that the hijackers had taken the flight before and knew the visual characteristics of the flight path.
