We present images and analysis of the collapse of the WTC Twin Towers,
showing they were erected with in-built explosives which were used to
demolish them on 9/11. In this two hour BFN special report, our guest
Christopher Brown presents the case for demo build, explains the exact
techniques used to bring down the Twin Towers and shows how this is
fully consistent with what we all saw in their extraordinary collapse.
The 9/11 3i Investigation The Next Level Show - 28th June, 2007
No analysis of "collapse" (sic) can be accurate without a correct definition of the structure that stood. A massive deception has been foisted upon the public by presenting that multiple steel core columns existed inside the core area.
Figure 1Here is the only actual image showing the officially presented core. Some people count 47 steel box columns represented there.
Here is a description of the photos that are misrepresented to complete the deception of the core structure. It will take 2 images to do that.
Figure 2 The first is the classsic helicopter photo of the top floor of a tower under construction. Someone else annotated this image but they were honest in their appraisal of the size of columns and only labeled the truly huge columns "MASSIVE". those columns were no in the core area and only surrounded it. What the misrepresentation does is attempt to call the vertical steel in the core "core columns". If that steel were "core columns" it would be super strong and be seen in every one of the above images in the core area. It is not ever seen in any 9-11 images.
Figure 3 Below is another image taken from the street level when the tower was but 5 or 6 floors tall. The vertical steel in the core area has a small plate welded to the top of it. It can be termed a "butt plate" and mates with another having identical bolt holes where the 2 are joined together. Totally inadequate for creating a core column as it has no ability to resist lateral loads. In reality the concrete was cast inside the core area and when the exterior steel framework had caught up and passed the elevator guide rail support steel and the concrete had cured, the elevator guide rail support steel was fastened to the inside of the concrete tubular core. So the guide rail support steel had to take compression loads but not lateral loads and but plates are suitable for that. Because the support steel was kept straight by being bolted to the inner concrete core walls, the elevators in the WTC were among the fastest in the world.
Figure 4 What actually stood was a steel
reinforced cast concrete rectangular tube. Here is the WTC 2 core
standing at around 400 foot tall.
Figure 5 Another image which provides
proof of the concrete core is this image which shows the spire, off the
north west corner of the WTC 1 core. To the left of the spire is an end
view of the concrete shear wall of the WTC 1 core as viewed along the
wall looking south.
The below images have a description of identities of these different smoke, dust and debris to be, and how they originated in the positions seen as the towers come down.
My analysis of these dust or debris clouds and their apparent location and behavior identifies the darker central plume as upwardly focused particulate primarily from the core area projecting with concentration directly upwards from explosives.
The interior box columns were cut every third floor by custom, optimized cutting charges built into the floors and were detonated approximately every 300 milliseconds.
Figure 6 Here is the smooth, square end of
the tempered steel columns found at ground zero.
Figure 8 Close up with brightness and contrast enhanced
Near the second hour of the missing documentary, called "The Engineering and Construction of the Twin Towers" was a description of the below steel plates which were installed every 3rd floor in the towers. This documentary still exists, but only in the closets of Americans as forgotten VHS tapes. Only to be found by the truth movement inquiring with friends and relatives who are not 9-11 activists.
Figure 9The steel plates configured as shown below, acting with plastic explosives sandwiched between them, and the documentary described forced evacuations of workers on the floors just after sandblasting prior to concrete application, can act as an optimized cutting charge and slice through tempered steel using the plates as guides and leave the precision smooth edges seen.
Such charges configured as above can leave even smoother cuts in far
thicker, harder steel that the linear shaped charge shown in the video
Figure 10 Shaped Linear Charge Example:
Keep in mind that commercial linear shaped charges are currently limited
to 1 inch thickness from my limited research
Figure 11 Occasionally these charges were overloaded or perhaps the tube
above was blocked to cause a rupture. Evidence of such is documented and analyzed here.
Figure 12 Below is the northeast corner of WTC 2; the box column tubes being cut provided the vertical trajectory for the primarily metal particulate making the darker column over the top of the rest. Separate plumes can be seen from the box columns blowing very dark iron particulate.
The vertical valley between exploding core faces is clearly seen as blast waves from the precision planes perpendicularly opposed travel away from each other.
Figure 13 Below, arcing out and up at about 10:00, 10:30 O'clock are plumes of higher velocity particulate from the concrete core comprise of some larger hard stone aggregate. The origin of this material is from just off center indicating blasts from the core walls. Front and center is a billowy very light colored cloud of dust which appears near the facing periphery and is comprised of the components of lightweight concrete from floors such as vermiculite, fly ash and pumice.
Figure 14 The last image below is WTC 2 on the east face from the south. The dark particulate of iron is is strikingly symetrical. WTC 1 behind it is completely obscured by smoke and debris. As does the top image of WTC 2 (figure 12) a second earlier, this image on the adjacent south eastern corner shows the pronounced vertical valley of precision exploding concrete planes. In this image the uniformity and nearly complete ring of darker smoke over the lighter colored debris and dust shows the vertically ejected, super heated fine steel particulate of the cutting charges detonating and cutting the box columns ringing the core area. The box columns act as chimneys with forced ejection's of steel particulate until they are thrown outward by the descending core blasts. Expanding gases and displaced, superheated air from the core area force the widening column of dust upward as core detonations proceed downward.
This is a very unique explosion. The red line shows a vertical valley formed in the debris because of the 2 precision, exploding planes of the core walls with perpendicular alignments. The debris waves are moving perpendicularly away from each other so the valley forms. The yellow line shows the adjacent ridge to the valley or the far reaches of the parallel debris wave from the exploding plane. The exclusive very fine particulate in the quantities seen is quite unusual in any kind of blast and denotes extremely high pressures from optimum placement combined with optimum distribution of the explosive. The eyewitness reports of the type of sound is also consistent with very well contained blasts.
Figure 15 Below, the image of the Amanzafar series has all the characteristics and the dark plume of iron based particulate, superheated from being cut with high explosives is quite pronounced. Left of that are clearly vertical and separate columns of smoke or particulate from the central concrete core area. The darkest plume of iron can be easily located as the south east side of the WTC1 core eastward of the lighter plume angling upward in front of it by the spire which was off the northwest corner of the core.
The spire was formed by deteriorated explosives on the north side of WTC1 which cause failures in detonation leaving larger pieces of floors and beams connecting interior box columns and perimeter columns. In this image interior box columns of the south east side are undergoing cutting while concrete core walls are detonating along the south and west. Smaller more billowing dust clouds from floors are seen to the right and lower which appears as the source of airborne larger debris.
Statements of various architects and engineers regarding the concrete core.
Leslie Robertson, Architect Of The World Trade Center Towers
Still, Robertson, whose firm is responsible for three of the six tallest buildings in the world, feels a sense of pride that the massive towers, supported by a steel-tube exoskeleton and a reinforced concrete core, held up as well as they did—managing to stand for over an hour despite direct hits from two massive commercial jetliners.
Says engineer Robertson, “If they had fallen down immediately, the death counts would have been unimaginable,” he says. “The World Trade Center has performed admirably, and everyone involved in the project should be proud.” The buildings were designed specifically to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707, the largest plane flying in 1966, the year they broke ground on the project.
The twin towers of the World Trade Center were essentially two tubes, with the north tower (1,368 feet) six feet taller than the south tower (1,362 feet), and each were 110 stories tall. Each tube contained a concrete core, which supported only the load of the central bank of elevators and stairwells (Snoonian and Czarnecki 23).
NOTE: This page has some confusion about the construction sequence of steel and concrete.
Each of the towers, in other words, was held up by its reinforced concrete core and the world's strongest curtain walls. Without the usual steel skeleton, the open floors allowed unprecedented space and flexibility. Between them, the two 1,350-foot-high towers provided 7.9 million square feet of rentable floor space, roughly the equivalent of fifty city blocks.
At the heart of the structure was a vertical steel and concrete core, housing lift shafts and stairwells. Steel beams radiate outwards and connect with steel
uprights, forming the building's outer wall.
August Domel, Jr., Ph.D., S.E., P.E. November 2001
Groundbreaking for construction of the World Trade Center took place on August 5, 1966.Tower One, standing 1368 feet high, was completed in 1970, and Tower Two, at 1362 feet high, was completed in 1972. The structural design for the World Trade Center Towers was done by Skilling, Helle, Christiansen and Robertson. It was designed as a tube building that included a perimeter moment-resisting frame consisting of steel columns spaced on 39-inch centers. The load carrying system was designed so that the steel facade would resist lateral and gravity forces and the interior concrete core would carry only gravity loads.
Dr. Domel received a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1988 and a Law Degree from Loyola University in 1992. He is a licensed Structural Engineer and Attorney at Law in the .State of Illinois and a Professional Engineer in twelve states, including the State of New York. Dr. Domel is authorized by the Department of Labor (OSHA) as a 10 and 30 hour construction safety trainer.
NOTE: The link for the following does not respond. 2/06/06
The World Trade Center towers were an unusual design, at least at the time they were built. Their support structure is called a 'bundled tube', or in engineering terms, a glass curtain wall structure. What this means is that the buildings are tubes, made rigid by a lattice of steel beams on the outside walls. These vertical columns are strengthened by horizontal beams, and this design is what helps support the building, and keep it stable in high winds. An inner concrete core houses the elevators, and provides additional vertical load support
the people who did the appraisal for the last insurance policy in fact say the twin towers came down exactly as it was designed to do. they also do not understand why this is such a problem for many of us here debating it.
i did not understand why they made that comment, but i now suppose they mean there must be reasons, including an attack, for such a design, so that the WTC won't end up destroying half the downtown district when a disaster occurs.
just giving you their perspective.

Posted: Wed Jun 27, 2007 11:13 pm Post subject: Nope.
I'm not buying the idea of construction with demolition tech included. Nope.
There was an elevator rebuild project going on for many months before 9/11 that would've provided time and access to the inner core of the building to load it up with thermate to perforate the columns and explosives to blow it all to hell.
The elevator project's article used to be online at elevator-world.com as a pdf file.
The summer just before Popular Mechanics put out their disinfo 'Debunking 9/11 Myths' the article vanished from the website.
So, no, I don't think C4 was included in the construction. Whatever explosives were added in the months leading up to the day. _________________ What shall we watch tonight?

Hugh Manatee: There was an elevator rebuild project going

the columns and explosives to blow it all to hell.
One problem with that theory is in your own phrase: enough explosive
"to blow it all to hell". If you pack the elevator shafts with explosives as
you suggest, the blasts will hurl a large number of steel beams all
over Manhattan. Whereas only a few beams were thrown out.
Reason being that the floors had already been disconnected by smaller
blasts before the core exploded, thus there was no direct connection from
the core to the perimiter when the core blew. That connection is what would
hurl beams far and wide if the demolition was as you described.
To avoid that, the floors must first be blasted. And they must be first to go.
And you can't just walk into WTC offices and start wiring their floors with
Another problem is that what you describe does not acccount for the very
fine particulate. Only a core demolition using a vast grid of C4-coated
rebar can explain the particulate --and the so-called pytotechnic flow.
Finally, it does not explain the smooth-egded cuts in the beams.
Only linear charges in the plates attached to the floor panels will do that.
Actually, I think the elevator issue is a convenient misdirection.

Excellent interview, F. C gave a great explanation.
I think you guys just blew up a bunch a disinfo tonight.
More visual and glossary of construction and demolition will help to understand better. _________________ There is no single definition of truth about which the majority of philosophers agree. -Wikipedia.org
I can't tell if Paul Laffoley is pulling my leg. We're talking in the artist's downtown Boston studio, and he tells me he has a tiny pellet lodged in his brain that is transmitting information about life on Earth to extraterrestrial beings somewhere else in the universe. He shows me a copy of a CAT scan that reveals exactly where it is located.
Some of us here (hello Fintan) are familiar with marketing principles, one of which is the principle of planned obsolescence.
Planned obsolescence is fundamental to the life cycle of ANY product, be it a washing machine or two commercial structures built on THE most prime real estate on the planet.
The twin towers were prime real estate commercial products with a life cycle: One day they would have to be deemed obsolete: Advances in ITC dictated that the WTC as a COMPLEX of COMMERCIAL structures would one day become commercially obsolete.
The WTC had become or/and was designed to adhere to the principle of obsolescence of function.
Now educate yourselves about planned obsolescence and think about Chris Brown's assertions and contentions.
To put it simply, you buy a washing machine. Two weeks before the two year guarantee expires the sucker eats your girlfriend's Prada panties.
Dang! And I didn't even get to sniff them .
The washing machine was designed to fail.
DESIGNED TO FAIL. And no compensation to trendy girlfriend (unless her name was Larry ).
Now educate yourselves about planned obsolescence and think about Chris Brown's assertions and contentions.
The first words written by mankind where the Hidden Hand writing about taking down the twin towers. Its a long term multi generation guest for One World Monopoly. Killing a few people matter not to these power grabbers. Their reward is not a few trillion dollars, rather the whole world.
The next time you're driving down the road @ 90mph think about this 'planned obsolescence', have you taken your car in for maintenance lately???
