Just a reminder

The official version of the collapse of the WTC towers on 9/11/01 was prepared by FEMA.

That photo of the south tower goes a long way to exposing the official story as a fraud. The official explanation says that the structure was weakened by the impact of the plane and the subsequent fire, leading to progressive collapse of the structure. The toppling of the top of the building shown here seems possibly consistent with the first two--the initial impact of the plane took out many columns on one side of the building, and the fire further weakened the adjacent columns which had picked up the load. Eventually, the top falls over like a tree being chopped down--in the direction of the weakness. From this, the possibility of progressive collapse seems remotely possible--the toppled section remains partially attached and pulls more of the building down along with it. But this isn't at all what happened. The official explanation says that the upper floors came crashing down onto the lower floors, separating them from the exterior columns and causing a chain reaction as the ever-greater weight hits each lower floor in succession. But the initial toppling of the upper floors shown here makes this pretty much impossible, especially in the remarkably uniform manner in which the lower floors collapsed.

It should be noted that the south tower, shown above, was the second tower hit on 9/11. The fires in the south tower were visibly smaller than those in the north tower, yet the south tower collapsed only 47 minutes after being hit, compared to 104 minutes for the north tower. The collapse of the WTC towers is much more consistent with being a controlled demolition than it is with the "official" explanation.

Wild conspiracy theory? Let me repeat what I said at the start: The official explanation of the buildings' collapse came from FEMA, which at the time was led by aWol's 2000 campaign manager (Mike Brown was Allbaugh's assistant, and I'm sure Brownie was doing a heckuva job back then, too).
