'Experts' Offer Yet Another Contradictory Conclusion For WTC Collapse
AP SNIP: NEW YORK - Federal investigators said Tuesday the World Trade Center buildings probably would not have collapsed Sept. 11, 2001, if fireproofing had adhered firmly to columns and floors.
The NIST, which issued three reports on the attacks, did not blame designers or builders for the buildings' collapse. However, Shyam Sunder, who led NIST's fire and safety investigation, said there are now better ways to ensure fireproofing adheres to steel.
"Even with the airplane impact and jet-fuel-ignited multifloor fires, which are not normal building fires, the buildings would likely not have collapsed had it not been for the fireproofing that had been dislodged," he said.
First we were told jet fuel was hot enough to melt steel for the first time in history.
That was disproven.
Then we were told that a 'pancake effect' that crushed one floor after another brought down the buildings.
That was disproven.
Now the latest lie is to claim inadequate fireproofing. The firefighter tapes released to the New York Times clearly indicate that right before the towers collapsed the fires were minimal and under control.
"Battalion Seven Chief: "Battalion Seven ... Ladder 15, we've got two isolated pockets of fire. We should be able to knock it down with two lines. Radio that, 78th floor numerous 10-45 Code Ones."
The Windsor Building in Madrid burned for nearly two days on almost all its floors. Its structural core was weaker than that of the WTC towers and yet it didn't collapse.
"The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it, that was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building could probably sustain multiple impacts of jet liners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door - this intense grid - and the plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting."
Frank A. DeMartini, Manager, WTC Construction and Project Management, discusses the fact that the WTC towers were designed to take multiple hits from airliners and not collapse, comparing it to poking a pencil through fly netting, DeMartini was adament that the towers would not collapse.
FACT: BUILDING 7 COLLAPSED IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE TWIN TOWERS YET IT WASN'T HIT BY A PLANE AND HAD MINIMAL FIRE DAMAGE
