Jim Fetzer: Mystery Solved: The WTC was Nuked on 9/11!
A debate has raged for more than a decade, about what caused the Twin Towers to collapse in approximately 10 seconds each, 9 seconds for the South Tower, 11 for the North. A large and growing percentage of the public has become skeptical of the conclusion of the government's official NIST found no corroborating evidence for alternative hypotheses, suggesting that WTC towers were brought down by controlled demolition, using explosives planted prior to 9/11. Skepticism of NIST's conclusions is well founded. There is eyewitness testimony as well, as abundant video and audio evidence of explosions at the WTC on 9/11. There is also seismic data that demonstrates that high powered explosives were used to demolish the Twin Towers. The gross observable video evidence, if you are willing to believe your own eyes, shows that the Twin Towers were destroyed from the top down and the inside out. We believe that only mini nukes, which were probably neutron bombs, planted in the center columns of the buildings, detonated from top to bottom, and configured to explode upward, can explain what is observed. If they were used to blow apart one ten floor cube per second, for example, then, since the North Tower stood at 110 floors, that would have taken 11 seconds, while, since the top three cubes of the South Tower were tilted over and blown as one, in that case, it would have taken only 9, which coincides with NIST's own times. This is a controversial contention. Judy Wood, Ph.D. has proclaimed that a Tesla inspired directed energy weapon (DEW) was responsible for the destruction of the WTC buildings, and has vehemently denied nuclear bombs were used. Steve Jones, Ph.D. and his followers promote the theory that an incendiary nano-thermite was the cause of the destruction of the WTC buildings, while they also deny that nukes were used. So these seemingly opposed camps agree on one thing: nukes were not used on 9/11! The nano-thermite hypothesis has been discredited on multiple occasions, in articles by T. Mark Hightower and Jim Fetzer, including Has nano-thermite been oversold to the 9/11 community? Is 9/11 truth based upon a false theory? and Nanothermite: If it doesn't fit, you must aquit. Since it is a principle, meaning law of materials science that an explosive can destroy a material only if it has a detonation velocity equal to, or greater than the speed of sound in that material, detonation velocity equal to or greater than the speed of sound in that material, where the speed of sound in concrete is 3,200 m/s and in steel 6,100 m/s, while the highest detonation velocity that has been attributed to nanothermite is 895 m/s, it should be obvious: You can't get there from here!
