Getting to the bottom of what really happened:
NIST spokesperson Michael E Newman 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?
NEWMAN: 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?
NEWMAN: 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 to have not done so.

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 9/11/2001. All of them, have overlooked a large body of well-documented evidence showing all three buildings could only have been brought down in highly unprecedented, though none-the-less, controlled demolitions. Normally, the goal of hi-rise demolition is to 'put the building in its basement,' far more in line with what we see happened with Building 7, although the use of thermite in skyscraper demolition is highly unconventional, such devices exist. See: 'Komatsu'
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 (4 inches per floor of reinforced concrete with corrugated metal decking on each side) 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. Many of these features are, ipso facto, very strong indicators of the presence of explosives:
The speed and symmetry with which all three towers came down.
The energy involved in destroying the Twin Towers were so great they :
Pulverized most of the concrete, gypsum, even the metal decking could not be located at Ground Zero.
Dismembered the superstructures, ejecting of the majority of them and building contents outside the footprint of the building.
Multi-ton steel perimeter column wall assemblies and core columns were ejected horizontally, hundreds of feet in every direction, some embedding into the facades of buildings 500 and 600 feet away.
Each left a 1200' radial debris pattern. (FEMA BPAT May 2002)
Squibs. Powerful ejections of concrete seen shooting out (well below the demolition wave, shredding the building above) of the facades, visible in numerous videos and the photos above.
Virtually no freestanding vertical columns.
Molten steel and iron.
Pits containing 'pools of molten metal.' 'Molten metal running down the debris pile' 'Molten steel running down the channel rails' -(FDNY responder) and extreme temperatures recorded in the weeks that followed
Fires that could not be put out for 100 days.
'How could I be sure, I'm not a scientist or an architect?' Jurors are lay people tasked with deciding between competing experts, even in the most serious of trials. A thorough review of the facts is all that is required in order to weigh the evidence and make the most informed decision possible based on the preponderance of reason. A basic understanding of skyscraper design and the properties of steel. It is 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 has the accounts of first-responders, the news accounts during those first days, -which were also loaded with propaganda. As well as the analyses of legitimate independent researchers.
Watching Building 7's implosion we must ask how it was possible for a skyscraper to exhibit every feature of a planned implosion yet not have been one, when the only time those features have ever been seen in the past were during controlled demolitions? This means the burden of proof is on anyone claiming anything other than a controlled demolition brought the building, down. WTC 7 was reduced to a remarkably neat 3-story pile of rubble in 6.5 seconds, at 5:20PM that afternoon. Large sections of the perimeter wall could be seen laying on the 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 free fall. Free fall, barring demolition, is impossible in any supported structure because even a weakened one 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. It directly undermines the crucial peer-review process which is central to the scientific process.
-Molten metal  found in small iron spherules so prevalent, (5.87% by vol) 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 shocking amount of dust the destruction of the Twin Towers 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, nano-engineered materials, and will never leave elemental iron as a by-product when ignited, as the red/gray chips have been shown to do.
-Carbon nanotubes have also been found in the lungs of first responders.
-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 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 and the ignoring of evidence in order to make the conclusions fit the 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, misdirection, 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. Only one section of the FEMA BPAT that was peer-reviewed, -Appendix C A Limited Metallurgical Examination.
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 have been unable to confirm the identity of the thousands of fragments of human remains that are 'frozen for future analysis.'
The reluctance on the part of the Bush administration to investigate the attacks was shocking and revealing. It was 400 days before 9/11 Commission was formed, 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 70% of their questions unanswered. It, like the rest of this, speaks for itself and the more one looks at the evidence, the worse it gets. 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, but no justice for those murdered that day.
Shock & Awe Like the nanothermite documented in the Harrit 2009 paper the anthrax spores used in the attacks that closely followed 9-11, have been forensically linked to US military insiders. Bruce Ivins did not have access to silicon-coated (weaponized) anthrax, nor the equipment to manufacture it. This Wall St Journal Online Op Ed piece is surprising accurate The Anthrax Attacks Remain Unsolved by EJ Epstein, given the author's personal website has a section on 9/11 chockfull of disinformation and lacking the most damning and compelling evidence that makes the official conspiracy theory impossible. That these attacks were carried out by the same individuals is very important to see. The anthrax letters mention 9/11 and pretended to be from Muslims. They were used the same way: to scare Americans. The media was completely complicit with daily stories of fear-mongering and the terrorists could be anyone, creating the pretext and outrage to launch otherwise indefensible and patently illegal wars of aggression. Here are some recent interviews with Graeme MacQueen on Media Roots and another with James Corbett. For this reason we should refer to the 911 attacks as the 911-anthrax Attacks.
Not every fact mentioned here is sourced below but all are easily verified. Do your own research. There seems to be more nonsense and disinformation online regarding 911 than just about any other subject. The purpose of disinformation is to mischaracterize and misdirect. Yet the central claims are of 911 Truth are based on a preponderance of well-documented evidence from a wide range of sources. Physics and the scientific method demand that we follow where they lead. Both the red/gray chips and the anthrax sent through the mail have both been forensically linked to US military labs.

"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.
You can step through the footage frame by frame here: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/videos/index.html
If you do, what you will find is that the top sections were destroyed first, from the point of impacts, upwards, timed to begin precisely as they began to fall, in what was an obvious attempt to create a curtain of debris behind which to hide the destruction of the remaining intact lower portions. (This is why they seem to disappear into ever-widening clouds of dust). I say this bc according to the findings of the forensic video analyses done by David Chandler, the lower sections were destroyed at approximately 64% the (free fall).
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.
