David Chandler's commentary : The North Tower Exploding
Looking just at the North Tower for a moment, how can we even imagine that this massive, one acre (of floor space, not counting the huge core structures) by 110-story, highly-redundant office building could have converted itself into dust and fragments of steel, when there were only 10-13 floors above the impact zone and gravity was, supposedly, the only thing driving the destruction? The lightest part of any building is the top, this is why the towers had tapered columns that got progressively thicker on lower floors. At their base, each of the larger core columns was nearly solid. What remained & surrounding areas.
Over 1100 people that were in the towers remain unaccounted for to this day. No one has asked or explained why it is that current DNA analysis has been unable to identify the 9000+ human remains that are still, 'frozen for future analysis'. The New York City Medical Examiner's Office refuses to answer this question. Obviously, the remains are so severely degraded, standard DNA analysis has been unable to identify whom they belong to.
The NIST 'investigation' of the destruction of the Twin Towers goes only up to, "conditions for collapse initiation having been reached," and ignored everything that followed, (the destruction of the lower intact portions) as if it were all inevitable and not even worth investigating. The 'pile driver' theory does not match observations and every official "investigation" has been an investigation in name only. *NIST is a nonregulatory agency of the Department of Commerce.
WTC7's implosion - [version II] speaks for itself: asymmetrical damage caused by office fires and localized failures, can not possibly account for the precipitous, high-speed, symmetrical collapse that occurred. One does not need to be an engineer or architect to know what happened to these buildings. We have a good idea what happened inside of them because we can see how they came down and what remained of them afterwards.

Getting to the bottom of what really happened:
NIST spokesperson Michael Neuman when challenged by Hartford Advocate reporter Jennifer Abel on a glaring omission in the WTC report.
ABEL: … what about that letter where NIST said it didn’t look for evidence of explosives?
NEUMAN: Right, because there was no evidence of that.
ABEL: But how can you know there’s no evidence if you don’t look for it first?
NEUMAN: If you’re looking for something that isn’t there, you’re wasting your time.
Ignoring precedence and standard operating procedure, NIST refused to test for explosive residues. Barring a cover-up, there is no logical reason for them not to have done so.
"To remain silent is to be guilty of complicity. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.' -ML King
Over the years, we have heard a variety of 'experts' postulating a series of different hypothesis in an effort to explain the rapid and complete destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7, on 9/11. All of them, have overlooked a large body of legitimate, well-documented evidence showing that, in all likelihood, all three buildings were brought down in controlled demolitions. Albeit, what was done to the Towers was unprecedented. Normally, the goal of hi-rise demolition is to 'put the building in its basement, -precisely the manner in which Building 7 imploded at 5:20pm that afternoon.
The South Tower stood for 56 minutes and the North Tower for 102 minutes after having been hit by individual commercial aircraft. Despite the radically different angles of the plane impacts, both towers were destroyed in precisely the same manner. There is no question these were highly explosive events. Each pulverized most of the 90,000 TONS of concrete in the building and converted all but the most robust metallic elements into small fragments and fine powder. Even the sixty-five miles of structural steel beams that made up the massive and elaborately cross-braced core structures were violently blasted apart, strewing them hundreds of feet in every direction. All, in 12-15 seconds each. Most of the core columns were reduced to roughly 30' sections, ready for immediate removal to overseas recycling centers. Each also produced massive pyroclastic clouds (another telltale high energy feature), that blanketed parts of lower Manhattan in fine powder from 'river to river.' (Gov Pataki)
Numerous well-documented anomalies [more anomalies] were observed in lower Manhattan on 9/11 and in the months that followed. Even alone, a number of these features would be a strong indicator of the presence of explosives:
The speed and symmetry with which all three towers came down.
The energies involved in destroying the Twin Towers were so great they :
-Pulverized most of the concrete, gypsum, leaving over 1100 human people still unaccounted for.
-Dismembered the superstructures and hurled multi-ton steel perimeter wall assemblies and core columns outwards for hundreds of feet in every direction, embedding some into the facades of neighboring buildings.
-Squibs. Powerful ejections of concrete seen shooting out (way below the demolition wave, above) of the facades. Visible in numerous videos and the photos above .
-Each left an approximately 1600 foot radial debris pattern -as per FEMA.
-Virtually no freestanding vertical columns
-Molten steel and iron
-Extreme temperatures recorded in the weeks that followed
-Fires could not be put out for 100 days.
'How could I be sure? Im not a scientist or an architect?' Jurors are lay people tasked with deciding between competing experts, even at the most serious trials. A thorough review of the facts is what is required in order to weigh all of the evidence carefully. A basic understanding of skyscraper design and the properties of steel. (It's not that complicated. What it is is deeply disturbing). Look carefully, at all the photos and videos of these events you can find. Read and listen to the firsthand accounts, the Oral Histories at The New York Times is a must., and the numerous news accounts from the day. Then, based on a preponderance of reason, make an informed decision.
The reluctance on the part of the Bush administration to investigate these attacks is very revealing. It took over 400 days to get the 9/11 Commission together and then it was only because of the outcry of victim's family members, who, when it was all said and done, were left with more questions. It, like the rest of this, speaks for itself. To this day, no regulatory agency has investigated these attacks. There have been numerous examples of misdirection, ignoring and denying of evidence, and bad science from FEMA, the 911 Commission, and NIST.
-Watching Building 7's implosion, we must ask how it was possible for a skyscraper to exhibit every feature of a planned implosion and yet not have been one, when the only time those features have ever been seen in the past, were during controlled demolitions? Surely, the burden of proof lies with anyone claiming it was anything else. The 47-story building was reduced to a remarkably neat 3-story pile of rubble at 5:20pm that afternoon. Large sections of the perimeter wall could be seen laying on its surface.
NIST, in their 'final report' on WTC7 - (after being called out on it by David Chandler state: "This free fall drop continued for approximately 8 stories or 32.0 m (105 ft).." So for the first 100' of this building's collapse (the perimeter walls) the rate of fall of the roof line was indistinguishable from acceleration of freefall. Freefall, barring demolition, is impossible in any supported structure, because even a weakened structure will have some resistance. More recently, citing unstated 'public safety concerns,' NIST categorically refused to release the data inputs they used to make their computer model of Building 7's collapse. Even then, their results look nothing like the actual event. This is not how science is done. This directly undermines the crucial peer-review process which is central to the scientific process.
-Molten metal  found in small iron spherules so prevalent, that investigators for RJ Lee labeled them a “signature component” of WTC Dust. Molten metal poured out of the southeast corner of the South Tower just below the point where moments later it came apart. Severely corroded remnants of structural steel beams documented in the BPAT Appendix C and repeatedly in witness accounts which describe, 'pools of molten metal in the basements and elevator shafts beneath all three towers.'
-100 day underground fires and extreme temperatures documented by numerous sources cannot be accounted for by any kind of uncontrolled hydrocarbon fire. Daily surface temperature readings taken by Bechtel for the ASSE [NASA and FDNY took their own readings] and nearly two weeks later recorded a surface temperature of 2800F 9 days after 09/11. This despite the millions of gallons of water poured onto them by the FDNY and rain in the days and weeks that followed, the fires would not be put out for 100 days. It turns out that thermite burns even underwater because it provides its own oxidizer. Smoldering pits with pools of molten metal in them are what remained of all three skyscrapers.
-The red/grey chips. If explosives were used, Steven E Jones reasoned, there should be traces of them in the copious amounts of dust these events generated. Having already documented the iron micro-spheres, Jones was the first to document the presence of minute 'red/gray' chips in the dust and subsequently took part in the nearly 2 year, peer-reviewed study conducted at a number of different universities, and headed by Dr Niels Harrit, head of the Chemistry Dept. Copenhagen University, Denmark. Each of the four samples they tested, contained traces of a hi-tech (nano-engineered) thermitic material, they termed, nano-thermite.. Deniers have tried to explain these away as "paint primer chips" but those compounds are not highly energetic advance engineered materials, and will never leave elemental iron as a by-product when ignited, as the red/gray chips have been shown to do.
-Media blackout. Search for Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe in the NY Times and you will not find a word about it. Despite being ignored by most academic and corporate media sources, the paper's findings remain unchallenged within the scientific peer-reviewed literature.
-Who attacked us? By noon on the very day , we had Paul Bremer on NBC naming Osama Bin Ladin & Saddam Hussein as likely culprits. Within 3 days the FBI presented photos of the 19 alleged hijackers. A good number of whom turned out to be innocent people living abroad. Soon afterward the FBI conceded, ‘we may never learn the actual identity of the perpetrators.’
-Cover-Up: Investigations were postponed and underfunded. Numerous examples of deceit, the ignoring of evidence to make conclusions fit a preconceived narrative. Any criminal investigator will tell you the hours immediately following any crime are the most critical. Yet the first investigation into these unprecedented, world-changing attacks, consisted of12 "volunteers" who were not even allowed access to the site for 30 days. At which point they received what one described as, 'a guided tour.' The 156 samples of steel they did manage to obtain were mostly coupons cut at Freshkills Landfill where the smaller debris was taken and where, even pieces they had marked, "Save for Study" were "accidentally" discarded. See also: Non investigation.
Within the logic of the official story, these were the most catastrophic structural failures in engineering history. As such, they demanded the most rigorous and well-funded investigations possible. What we got was the exact opposite; underfunded sham investigations, misdirections, delays, and bad science. The first 'investigation' was an investigation in name only as the investigators were not even allowed access to the site for 30 days. . FEMA issued its report of May 2002. With regard to Building 7 they said : "Our best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence. Further research, investigation and analysis is necessary to resolve the issue." On the Twin Towers: "With the information and time available, the sequence of events leading to the collapse of the Twin Towers could not be definitively determined." [FEMA May, 2002]. The issuing of the FEMA BPAT coincided with completion of the clean-up and disposal of evidence at Ground Zero. *There is one part of the FEMA bpat that was peer-reviewed, -Appendix C, and look what it shows.
Missing Bodies. The smaller debris from Ground Zero was trucked to Freshkills Landfill in Staten Island, where it sorted into 3 content-based piles. It was then systematically laid out onto conveyor belts, lined with gloved-attendants, whose job it was to cull out any human remains they could locate. Despite two years of intensive searching and use of advanced DNA recovery techniques, over 1100 victims still remain unaccounted for. Many victims were identified from small fragments of bone or flesh, some found blocks away. 200 DNA tests matched a single individual. No one has addressed why current DNA techniques are unable to confirm the identify of thousands of unidentified human remains that are 'frozen for future analysis.' The NYC medical Examiner's Office refuses to answer direct inquiries on the matter.
Not every fact mentioned above is referenced here but all are easily verified. Do your own research. But remember, there is more nonsense online regarding 911 than almost any other subject I can think of.

"The most perfidious way of harming a cause consists of defending it deliberately with faulty arguments." - Friedrich Nietzsche
Despite what we do not and may never know about attacks of 9/11, there is a relatively short list of well-documented facts that make the progressive collapse hypothesis untenable. There is nothing theoretical about any of the data that shows preplanted explosives destroyed these buildings.

*Newton's 3rd Law, "If a force acts upon a body, then an equal and opposite force must act upon the body that exerts the force." The law of momentum conservation derives from this law. Based on this law, the collapse of these structures should have been slowed by these opposing forces… However, scientific papers and video analysis of a number of videos show no observable deceleration of the antenna or the roof line as the upper sections impacted the standing structures below. In fact, analysis shows that both towers actually accelerated as they came down.
If one steps through them frame by frame, in some of the videos, it appears that the top sections were destroyed first, (from the point of impact, up. As they fell) in what was possibly an attempt to create a curtain of debris behind which to hide the destruction of the remaining intact lower portions. According to findings based on analyses of the video evidence, the lower sections were destroyed at roughly 64% the acceleration of gravity. Each created a thunderous roar and volcano-like fountains of pulverized concrete, building contents, molten metal, squibs, flashes, and explosions, all documented (and then ignored in the official 'investigations) in numerous media and witness accounts.
