WTC Pre-Collapse Bowing Debunks 9/11 "Controlled Demolition" Theory
Indications of the Imminent Collapse
Scientists investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 collapse
of the twin towers said, "the World Trade Center towers showed
telltale signs they were about to collapse several minutes before
each crumbled to the ground." There
would not be telltale
signs if it was explosives (Controlled Demolition) that
caused the buildings to collapse.
"In the case of the north tower, police chopper pilots reported seeing the warning signs - an inward bowing of the building facade - at least eight minutes before it collapsed at 10:29 a.m." New York Daily News reporter Paul Shin wrote in his June 19th, 2004 article 9/11 cops saw collapse coming.
"Federal engineering investigators studying the destruction of the World Trade Center's twin towers on Sept. 11 said New York Police Department aviation units reported an inward bowing of the buildings' columns in the minutes before they collapsed, a signal they were about to fall." - NYC Police Saw Sign of Tower Collapse, Study Says
Several minutes before the WTC buildings collapsed, the structures of the buildings were clearly failing and the exterior steel columns could be seen buckling. This simply would not be happening if explosives caused the collapse because explosives don't go off in slow motion for several minutes. Explosives don't slowly buckle steel columns over several minutes.
Obviously, the way an actual controlled explosion happens is the explosives all go off in a matter of seconds. There simply would not be warning signs that the buildings were about to be demolished by explosives, it would of course just suddenly happen. But that is not what happened, the buildings did not suddenly collapse without any indications that they would. Instead, the fires were compromising the structural integrity of the buildings and the buildings' support structures failed. Exterior columns buckled because the fires weakened the floor trusses and the floors sagged. The sagging floors pulled on intact column connections so as the floors sagged down, they pulled the exterior columns inward. This inward bowing of the exterior columns was evident to observers such as the police helicopters circling the towers.
"The NYPD aviation unit reported critical information about the impending collapse of the buildings." They could see that the exterior steel beams of the buildings were bowing. You can see the inward bowing of the steel columns in pictures of both WTC 2, (the first building to collapse) and WTC 1 (the second building to collapse.)
Dr. Shyam Sunder, lead investigator for NIST's building
and fire safety investigation into the WTC disaster, said, "While the
buildings were able to withstand the initial impact of the aircraft,
the resulting fires that spread through the towers weakened support
columns and floors that had fireproofing dislodged by the impacts.
This eventually led to collapse as the perimeter columns were pulled
inward by the sagging floors and buckled." "The reason the towers
collapsed is because the fireproofing was dislodged," according to Sunder.
If the fireproofing had remained in place, Sunder said, the fires would
have burned out and moved on without weakening key elements to the point
of structural collapse." - Latest
Findings From NIST World Trade Center Investigation Released
"According to Shyam Sunder, the concave bowing of the steel was seen on the sides of the towers opposite where the planes hit them. At 10:06 a.m. that morning, an officer in a police helicopter reported that ``it's not going to take long before the north tower comes down.'' This was 20 minutes before it collapsed. In another radio transmission at 10:21 a.m., the officer said he saw buckling in the north tower's southern face, Shyam Sunder said."
"The report includes photographs taken from police
helicopters showing the bending columns."

We have an unacceptable risk to our nation because of
specific foreign policies. People who promote these erroneous 9/11 theories
undermine efforts to get the focus on stopping these foreign policies.
We must take a serious look at the
motives for the 9/11 attacks and call for a full review of the specific
foreign policies that motivate terrorists to attack us. I see a lot
of people are spreading this "controlled demolition" theory, I also
notice they don't talk about ending the foreign policies. Please
donate to help Representative Press get the facts out to the people.
False theories like "9/11 was a controlled demolition" or "9/11 was an inside job" or "The WTC collapsed because of explosives" really screw up efforts to stop the specific foreign policies that put our nation at risk. These false theories undermine serious efforts to get foreign policies addressed, for example, U.S. support for Israel. I suspect more than a few people pushing these false theories are very happy to misdirect the American public away from questioning specific foreign policies like U.S. support for Israel. (It is the main policy of the foreign policies that motivated the 9/11 terrorists. The plotter of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, actually went to school here in the U.S. He was angry at the U.S. not because of his experiences here as a student, but rather because of the U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel.)
I am working hard to set the record straight and end
the risk of terrorism. Please Donate to help me get the truth out. Those
conspiracy websites are clearly well funded and like I have said, they
misdirect the American public away from questioning specific foreign
polices like U.S. support for Israel. I need some money to work with
to undo the damage these websites are doing and get the facts to the
people. 9/11 was not a game, these conspiracy theories undermine efforts
to get the government to change the unjust Middle East policies: Please

In the case of the north tower, police chopper pilots reported seeing the warning signs - an inward bowing of the building facade - at least eight minutes before it collapsed at 10:29 a.m.
But emergency responders inside the tower never got the order to evacuate due to faulty communications equipment and garbled lines of command, investigators with the National Institute of Standards and Technology said in its second interim report on the collapse's causes.
"The NYPD aviation unit reported critical information about the impending collapse of the buildings," lead investigator Shyam Sunder said at a presentation in midtown.
"[If] that information would have been communicated faster to all of the emergency responders in the buildings, it could have helped save lives," he said.
Engineers believe the bowing of the exterior steel beams near the flame-engulfed floors was the critical "triggering point" because that's the direction each tower tilted as it came crashing down.
The findings that emergency responders could have been warned about the imminent collapse angered some victims' relatives, who were already fuming about the 9/11 Commission's report on Thursday that government foulups contributed to the chaos on that fateful day.
"Eight to 10 minutes could have meant life for so many people," said Sally Regenhard, whose son, Christian, was a probationary firefighter who died in the collapse.
"We had no integrated command structure, so that the Police Department was unable to communicate the fact that the building was going to collapse to the Fire Department," she said. "It's a knife in the heart of the relatives of the victims."

The World Trade Center's Steel Structure Was Buckling Before
What if they were Jews?
The CIA actively supported the 1963 coup that brought the Ba'ath party to power and the CIA made lists of people it labeled as communists and gave these lists to "the submachine gun-toting Iraqi National Guardsmen". The people on these CIA lists were "jailed, interrogated, and summarily gunned down, according to former U.S. intelligence officials with intimate knowledge of the executions."
Many suspected communists were killed outright, these sources said. Darwish told UPI that the mass killings, presided over by Saddam, took place at Qasr al-Nehayat, literally, the Palace of the End.
A former senior U.S. State Department official told UPI: "We were frankly glad to be rid of them. You ask that they get a fair trial? You have to get kidding. This was serious business." US diplomat James Akins served in the Baghdad Embassy at the time. Mr. Akins said, "I knew all the Ba'ath Party leaders and I liked them ... Sure, some people were rounded up and shot but these were mostly communists so that didn't bother us".
Think about this: What if they were Jews that were rounded up and shot? What if it was Jews whose names we handed over to be killed? Would it be seen as a serious event? Would it be pursued? Would there be a call for prosecution of those responsible?
I hope this comparison can help people start to understand the degree of evil perpetrated by US foreign policies? This is just one example. Does substitution "Jews" in place of "Iraqis" or "Communists" help you understand the degree of evil that US policy makers are responsible for? Are you going to do something now to make a call for justice? "Nazi hunters" worked for decades after the initial crimes of the murderers and facilitators of the deaths of Jews. Just because in the above case those murdered were not Jews but Iraqis and the murders were not Nazis party members but Ba'ath party members and the collaborators were Americans and not Europeans, does that mean you sit on your ass right now and do nothing? I think that if most people realized someone who was responsible for the deaths of Jews had not be brought to justice they would demand something be done about it. This should make you think about the evils US policy makers have gotten away with and why people would be angry to be on the receiving end of these policies. (from blog)
Crimes & Imperial Fantasies A
two-disc interview of Noam Chomsky interviewed by David Barsamian
David Barsamian: I interviewed Eqbal Ahmad in August, 1998, a couple of weeks after the Clinton cruise missile attacks on Afghanistan and Sudan, which were, according to the U.S., in response to the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and in Kenya. And he said, "Osama bin Laden is a sign of things to come." I asked him to explain. And he responded," The U.S. has sowed in the Middle East and in South Asia very poisonous seeds. These seeds are growing now. Some have ripened and others are ripening. An examination of why they were sown, what has grown, and how they should be reaped is needed. Missiles won’t solve the problem."
Noam Chomsky: That’s a very perceptive statement, expanding what he had pointed out much earlier. By now there is quite good analytic literature on how they developed. The best book on that is by a British investigator, Jason Burke, called Al-Qaeda. He confirms in detail what Eqbal predicted. He reviews a whole series of acts in the development of al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda is not an organization; it’s a loose network of very loosely affiliated, mostly independent organizations that have a kind of a similar ideology. He calls it a network of networks. And as Eqbal predicted, it became a major symbol and bin Laden himself became a major symbol as a result of these bombings. Before, it hadn’t been.
Take a look at Richard Clarke’s book. He says the same thing about U.S. intelligence. Until 1998, there was no special attention to al-Qaeda or bin Laden. They were kind of marginal factors. In fact, they didn’t even use the word al-Qaeda. But, yes, Eqbal is correct. What Burke points out is that every single U.S. act of violence has been a very welcome gift to bin Laden. He says, every use of violence is a small victory for bin Laden. It helps him mobilize the constituency that will, he hopes, join him in seeing the West as crusaders who are trying to destroy the Muslim world, saying, they must defend themselves. - Noam Chomsky interviewed by David Barsamian War Crimes & Imperial Fantasies the above is just a small sample transcript.
