This statement gains veracity when we realize that court officials will not support the truth in a wrongful death civil lawsuit by family members following 9-11. That statement is proven here where plaintiffs are deprived of the right to produce witness when the courts won't allow Firefighter testimony and that of Law enforcement. Their testimony was deemed "opinion".
More recently, 3/24/05, transcripts of callers were not allowed.
The appeals court disagreed with families whose attorneys argued in a hearing last month in Albany that public interest outweighed privacy protection of those who died in the attacks.
The above, and the common knowledge of presidential blockage of a lawful investigation, the destruction of evidence, etc., is proof that NO official anything is worth much at all in denial.
The scenario of this page FITS the evidence at the WTC, all of it, and provides practical, relevant explanations for what appears as impossible.
Keep in mind a fact about the few engineering reports attempting to assert the floor truss failures "theory". The structure they analyzed was not the correct structure. One of the reasons the following FEMA deception is critical to the ruse.
Why was the below design first released by FEMA then changed to the above?
Some in the UK still think it looks like the below?
This and more are due to the fact that WTC construction plans and other records of the city of New York were removed and placed, illegally in the private warehouse of Rudolph Giuliani
ACTUAL CORE OF WTC TOWERS
Below I've crudely altered an earlier FEMA core diagram to show how the concrete core, interior walls and hallways were configured through the entire height of the tower.
The FEMA web site does not depict the proper core structure of the world trade center. If it did the official story would not be worth, factually, the time it takes to hear it.
The twin towers had a rectangular cast concrete core structure formed into 4 rectangular cells that had elevators and stairways in them. By watching a documentary in 1990 about the construction of the towers I learned the details needed to analyze what has happened and what photos show us.
I have met a civil engineer who remembers the documentary aired on another cable educational channel in 1995 and remembers the concrete core as they are shown blow and labeled "ACTUAL CORE OF WTC TOWERS", but as yet, is not willing to provide a declaration certifying such. The documentary showed us the true concrete core structure of the trade center towers. It was 2 hours total, in 2 segments, airing on consecutive nights. I missed the first 20 minutes of the second one otherwise I watched it all. The architect, Kamasaki, design for a torsion resistant core structure made from non flexible material, steel reinforced cast concrete, won a competition with several others. The all steel towers failed high winds because the steel perimeter columns could take the weight but were prone to flexing and the twisting of the towers in the wind could cause a failure.
The documentary focused on the concrete core because the construction of the core was a big slowdown factor.
Interior walls of the core were not continuos vertically, they were interrupted by hallways perpendicularly opposed with each floor. Doorways appeared on each floor on every face every other floor. The tops of the interior walls of the concrete core served as the support for the steel interior concrete forms that had to be disassembled and lifted 40 feet to be set for the next pour. Exterior forms were plywood.
I'm unsure, but from communicating to people who worked above the 90th floor, the hallways went both directions on a single floor; from this it seems that the weakening of the towers core that this caused was not a problem near the top, so the hallway/door scheme was changed higher up.
What you see in the photos of tower construction within the official story are the kangaroo cranes used to move material, the interior forms, and elevator guide rails, or to position the rebar hanging into the concrete pour. The steel framework was built up to 7 floors over the top of the concrete core being constructed inside of the steel frame obscuring the core construction from view. Other photos when the construction is lower show elevator guide rails. These are being mis identified as "core columns" on some web sites. Photos and the tower construction. Before another core tier could be formed, the elevator guide rails had to be lowered and set in place to a level 2 floors lower than the top of the present concrete pour. They are what is shown in the diagram at the top of this page, the FEMA core. Multiple narrow rectangular tubes that supposedly ran full length for the tower. They can be identified by their square ends.

If they were the full length core columns shown in the FEMA diagram, where are they in the image below that shows the concrete tubular core of WTC 2 standing momentarily, half fallen, without the outer steel framework?
WTC 2 CORE STANDING
This is a link to the full size image below of the south tower with the lower portion of the concrete core standing momentarily. Even the slight taper of the concrete core can be seen after the steel outer structure has fallen away.
The actual slowdown in construction was when it was revealed by the government agency constructing, and the videographers had to pry for this information, that there was a special anti corrosion, anti vibration resistant coating on the rebar of the concrete core structure. The coating was flammable and special precautions were to be taken, meaning the government would handle the butt welding of the 3 inch vertical bar prior to regular crews running the horizontal minor steel that is tied with wire.
A special crew with armed escorts outside visual screens removed the coating from the bars, beveled the bar ends, welded the bars (welders working on the main steel couldn't be used because they didn't have security clearances) and x-rayed them. After each tier of concrete was poured the welding had to be completed before the concrete forms could be built again.
Keep this concrete core deception in mind because every single web analysis out supporting the official story uses the FEMA information. Floor truss analysis use a different beam system, less, than what was actually in the towers.
The core shown on the FEMA site, nor the other core design released right after 9-11 WILL leave a spire standing like we see below and no visible multiple, heavy core columns. No part of the FEMA core could have this appearance as it is halfway demolished! Above, I've altered available images to show what the core I saw being built in the documentary was.
Below is image of a spire that stood for 14 seconds comprised of one corner of the interior box columns that were fastened to the concrete core. This connection between interior columns and the concrete made the core a load bearing and anti torsion element for the steel framework configured as a tube around the concrete tube comprised of four smaller vertically interrupted tubular elements.
The below photo has a comb like shape of the remnant of the reinforcing bars, briefly standing of the core. The FEMA core cannot leave this shape. There are too many and they are too small. The box columns in the spire image above are about the same size as the steel columns the core was supposedly made from. The below photo was taken at approximately the same distance. These are a long row of 3" rebar on 4 foot centers seen at approximately 7500 feet.
In the video documentary it was noted that the special plastic coating was tested after sitting for longer periods during bad weather that didn't allow welding on the 3" vertical rebar and other work, and the coating of the rod had lost some of its viability. It was noted that nothing could be done and construction continued with freshly coated horizontal smaller rebar. Within this theory the new rebar was critical to removing the concrete and LEAVING the large vertical rebar standing as we see it in this photo.
The slope to the top of the rebar was mentioned in the documentary. The engineers specified that the concrete pours not terminate with level opposing joints across the tower to maximize the strength of the tubular concrete tower core. Also the rebar was to be welded in series of butt joints in a slope across the walls of the core. Slopes ran in opposite directions on opposite sides. The slope of the tops of the rebar in the photo below show this.
THE WTC 2 CORE FALLING
Below is an image of the top portion of WTC 2 as it falls and is about to hit WTC 3. I would expect to see doorways, but do not, and assume that the top 2 floors of the concrete core were different structurally than those below where a number of floors had hallways crossing in both direction.
Below I'll attempt to explain and identify the building elements as the are partially seen inverted and being ripped apart by the free fall descent of a portion of the steel reinforced tubular cast concrete core.
The pink arrow points to the core. The dark lines left of the arrow point are shadows of the perimeter box columns to the right, the south. The shadows are cast onto what was the roof of the cast concrete core. The brownish gray well lit face left and above are one concrete wall face of the core. The shadows and that face establish a basic cube shape inside the perimeter walls descending with it.
The fine red line approximates the top edge of the tower faces and what was the horizontal plane of the top of the tower. The fine circular blue line shows the counter clockwise rotation of a panel of box columns that are fastened by floor beams near the face corner that was below the top.
The fine green line shows the approximate exterior corner of the building and the heavy green arrow points to the edge of the perimeter box column panel that was aligned with the fine green line.
Keep in mind that this is the top of WTC 2 falling on WTC 3 which is to the west of the tower. This will be made significant a few paragraphs below.
At the bottom of this image (click here for full-size version) is seen huge quantities of sand and gravel which all has the color of cement. The official tower core design would produce HALF this much sand with NO gravel at all.
Another, and perhaps corroborating aspect is seen in an apparent explosion at impact of Flight 175 with the south tower.
How The WTC Was Secretly Demolished On 9-11-01.
The only way to reconcile this analysis inclusive of the 4 Glaring Inconsistencies is that the thick coatings of the rebar of the cast concrete support core and foundation were actually made of plastic explosive C4. This would put enough explosive force in direct contact with the most concrete at high enough pressures and enable the instantaneous structural collapse of each floor consecutively to the ground that we saw, as well as the resulting particulate. Attempting to apply explosives to the exterior of the concrete would have created too much external explosion and made the demo obvious without achieving a fraction of what we saw or see in the sand and gravel of the photos linked above.
This was technology invented in the cold war to make self destruct missile silos and submarine bases, perfect for preplanned demolition. The C4 protected the steel from corrosion before the sea water was evacuated by the incoming concrete to the forms. The C4 was encapsulated in the concrete and its 10 year average shelf life extended by many times.

"C4 resembles white, uncooked pastry or bread dough, and can be kneaded and moulded into any shape in total safety," said Mark Ribband, head of a British company that manufactures this explosive.
"You can even shoot bullets in it. It needs a detonator to make it explode," he said.
TOWER DEMOLITION SEQUENCE:
If you remember the North Tower roof falling in first showing a rectangular shape in the roofing material as the top with the antennae on it tilted with the antenna dropping. That was the core structure dropping from charges planted midway set to detonate first to simulate a collapse by plane strike. The concrete lost its bearing ability immediately with the first charges going off in the plane impact area below the top and then traveled downward and upward through the tower. The top tilted and fell.
When the lateral strength of the core left, the damaged steel columns on the plane impact side failed and the top started to tilt. Because the box columns were fastened to the outside of the tapered concrete core ands its internal rebar, the descending bar pulled much of the surrounding steel inward as the core structure detonations traveled downward. At this point the descending rebar of the cast concrete core, unsupported for perhaps 200 feet below the top was falling into the core and toppling to the side.
The wave of detonations traveled down in 40 foot supersonic waves; since the only contiguous steel rebar is vertical in cast concrete and the pours were 40 foot vertical. The delayed detonation traveled downward to the thicker zones of the core where 2 layers of 3 inch rebar were used and the size of explosion increased somewhat right to the ground level. Just before that the thermite mentioned below was initiated.
Floors were 4 inch poured concrete on large corrugated steel panels. Segments were 20 x 60 or 35 depending which side of the rectangular core in the square tower is indicated. Every 20 feet running from the face, perimeter columns to the interior columns fastened to the core face, was a 1x3 I beam.
All floors that were sandblasted and cleaned, ready to pour concrete were mandatory evacuated for a period by armed security that watched their work. This factor was in the video!! Upon returning members of concrete crews had reported to friends that on the first layers spreading the mud they were warned not to step on the green stuff in the valleys of the corrugated deck. What this was, NOT in the video, was that in every corrugation, about 2 feet apart and 4 inches wide, C4 was poured along it the full width of the floor segment.
These set with perhaps the wrong delay provide what is referred to as premature "squib" blasts. One corrugation perhaps right on line with a detonator in the explosive circuit could create exactly this effect. The C4 of some floors may have lost its viability whereas the totally encapsulated C4 on the rebar of the core was as good as the day it was cast.
Eyewitness reports of first explosions a ground level at the time of impact could only have been from vibration sensors set to fracture the foundation with the plane impact, another blast was 9 seconds later in both towers after impact.
Explosions In The Basement.
Mike told his co-worker to call upstairs to their Assistant Chief Engineer and find out if everything was all right. His co-worker made the call and reported back to Mike that he was told that the Assistant Chief did not know what happened but that the whole building seemed to shake and there was a loud explosion. They had been told to stay where they were and "sit tight" until the Assistant Chief got back to them.
The two decided to ascend the stairs to the C level, to a small machine shop where Vito Deleo and David Williams were supposed to be working. When the two arrived at the C level, they found the machine shop gone.
"There was nothing there but rubble" Mike said. "Were talking about a 50 ton hydraulic press - gone!" The two began yelling for their co-workers, but there was no answer. They saw a perfect line of smoke streaming through the air. "You could stand here," he said, "and two inches over you couldn't breathe. We couldn't see through the smoke so we started screaming." But there was still no answer.
The two made their way to the parking garage, but found that it, too, was gone. There were no walls, there was rubble on the floor, and you can't see anything he said
No walls, NO WALLS!!! Those were steel reinforced concrete walls, the centralized rebar of the walls coated with C4 removed the walls completely. The surviving engineers were protected by the efficiency of the blast which pulverized the concrete and filled the air with dust and high heat, floating the particles at the top of the room.
Excavator operators in clean up were amazed that they didn't have to use breakers to remove the foundations. The explosions were done with great efficiency in the base of the concrete core structure and exterior foundation. The detonations simply broke the foundation, and significant walls, moving relatively little material and were not explosively connected to travel upward. The vertical concrete load lent its mass to the foundation breakage and divided the total the seismic wave into 2 smaller events. The upper detonations and thermite initiation were simultaneous later and timed. If they were not timed and were remote, why would the second tower hit, least damaged, fall first? Human nature says that while conducting a ruse, those who have control to make it as perfect as ruse as possible, will do so. Meaning;
The pilot of the flight 11 hit the wrong tower.
There was no remote control over planes or detonations.
The fact that both towers fell almost identically and the tops fell in the wrong directions relating to the faces they were struck on are major factors that indicate the controlling aspects of the towers fall was completely separate from plane collisions and fires and that they were a demolition, controlled by timers.
Here is the top of the north tower falling to the south when the tower was hit hard on the north side. It is completely illogical that this building, hit first, hit hardest, burnt worst, would fall last, without demolition's being involved.
Below is a photo of the South Tower. The upper body of the tower is falling east, again, tipping the wrong way if the plane hit the south face.
Remember that the top of WTC 2 hit WTC 3.
Within a collapse, the upper body tilting east then the top falling west are all but impossible. With controlled demolition's benefiting from perfectly placed, precision delayed explosions, no problem.
Clearly, IF remote control was present with the planes, THEN the strikes on the buildings would coincide with the fall sequence of the towers because those in control would be logically compelled to make the ruse as believable as possible. They would be practiced and controlled in what they did, familiar with NYC. With control over the demolition's, the same effect could be achieved if the wrong tower was hit first simply detonate it first. It is not easy to believe that those conducting the ruse would NOT make it close to perfect if they could do so and it was not perfect by any means.
From this logic we can see that WTC 2 was supposed to have been hit first on the west side and the WTC 1 second on the south side. The demolition plan put the tops of both towers toward WTC 3.
The timer scenario also shows us that the fate of flight 93 was as a back up plane, wandering around. In essence waiting in a holding pattern, to INSURE that BOTH towers were hit by jetliners because the success of the ruse depended on that factor. After both towers were hit, it was shot down.

THERMITE REMOVING THE VERTICAL BEARING CAPACITY OF THE STEEL AT THE BOTTOM LAST:
Thermite was placed against steel faces in the lower building that created the large quantity of molten metal in the basements. In the most practical sense, thermite is the ONLY way to possibly create that much heat under those conditions.
After the van blew up in the basement of the WTC tower in 1993, (It is a known fact that government agents knew and allowed this to happen, see the trial of the terrorist charged) it and the first floor were remodeled and thermite was added in the quantities as calculated below minus the concrete core structure quantities covering a single face of the vertical structural steel.
The molten puddles of steel in the basement (corroborative link below) can only be explained by thermite (3,000 F at 30,000 FPS) which was needed to assure a complete and immediate failure of the bottom few floors at the end of the descent of the explosion removing the last steel support for the shifting load of debri, creating volume by perfect removal of short, strong vertical load bearing elements, accommodating the falling Debris, reducing collateral damage.
Inspection ports provided would allow access to the big vertical bar. I remember these mentioned in the documentary as needed to check the condition of the reinforcing bar. One week before 9-11 the building was unlocked throughout the inside for cable upgrades all weekend above the 48th floor. Just about the right amount of time to access the inspection ports and complete the work done needed to get exactly the effect described here by the firefighters;

the inspection ports into the cast concrete pour are opened and 4 inches of C4 scraped off the rebar interrupting the explosive circuit where the delay is inserted. Here is the opportunity for that.
According to Scott Forbes, a senior database administrator for Fiduciary Trust, Inc. a high-net investment bank which was later acquired by Franklin Templeton this is precisely what took place. Forbes, who was hired by Fiduciary in 1999 and is now stationed at a U.K. branch office, was working on the weekend of September 8-9, 2001, and said that his company was given three weeks advance notice that New Yorks Port Authority would take out power in the South Tower from the 48th floor up. The reason: the Port Authority was performing a cabling upgrade to increase the WTCs computer bandwidth.
Forbes stated that Fiduciary Trust was one of the WTCs first occupants after it was erected, and that a power-down had never been initiated prior to this occasion. He also stated that his company put forth a huge investment in time and resources to take down their computer systems due to the deliberate power outage. This process, Forbes recalled, began early Saturday morning (September 8th) and continued until mid-Sunday afternoon (September 9th) approximately 30 hours. As a result of having its electricity cut, the WTCs security cameras were rendered inoperative, as were its I.D. systems, and elevators to the upper floors.
The old way to do it would be to use det cord leaders on a 300 millisecond delay tied around both top and bottom coated areas of C4 coated bars connecting them explosively. Today, with an intimate knowledge of the redundant security phone circuits of the buildings, digital electronic delays could be placed that would do the job much better and isolate descrete charges from one another improving control.
WTC Security Breach and airports.
Washington, D.C. WASHINGTON, Jan 19, 2003 -- A company that provided security at New York City's World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., and to United Airlines between 1995 and 2001, was backed by a private Kuwaiti-American investment firm with ties to a brother of President Bush and the Bush family, according to records obtained by the American Reporter.
Marvin P. Bush, a younger brother of George W. Bush, was a principal in the company from 1993 to 2000, when most of the work on the big projects was done. But White House responses to 9/11 have not publicly disclosed the company's part in providing security to any of the named facilities, and many of the public records revealing the relationships are not public.
Nonetheless, public records reveal that the firm, formerly named Securacom, listed Bush on its board of directors and as a significant shareholder. The firm, now named Stratesec, Inc., is located in Sterling, Va., a suburb of Washington, D.C., and emphasizes federal clients. Bush is no longer on the board.
Marvin Bush has not responded to repeated telephoned and emailed requests for comment on this story.
Delays and Paths
The floor delays would be on one circuit and the core on another. Floor circuit delays would be set to count at 75 milliseconds with a possible decreasing delay downward for initiations of consecutive floors to the bottom. Concrete core delay paths would set at 300 milliseconds for each 40 foot concrete pour which had at least one inspection port on each 3" vertical rebar to remove the coating and slow the removal of bearing and lateral support, keeping the floors in position while they detonate.
The Glaring 4 Inconsistencies are dealt with by this theory based on information the public already has and knows. Some forgotten, who out there remembers the documentary of the construction?
THE GLARING INCONSISTENCIES:
1) The collapse of WTC 7, not hit by a plane.
2) The rate equaling that of free fall, inconsistent sequence, direction.
3) The molten steel seen in the basement 2 weeks after 9-11
4) The character and quantity of concrete particulate
1) World Trade Center 7 completed in 1984 had quite a bit more concrete in the lower floors due to the electrical substation and fuel tanks. Steel structure was used in upper floors of #7.
The same C4 coated rebar could be used to take the bottom floors out leaving the mass of upper floors to break structure below, and be broken up as they fell. This matches the video taken of #7's collapse.
2) If electronic delays described above are used at 30 intervals, floors with less delay, approximate the 9 second rate of fall with removal of the core structure adequate to bring all the material to the ground.
3) Thermite used in the positions described of this theory could end up leaving puddled steel anywhere in the basement.
In the basements of the collapsed World Trade Center towers, where the 47 (note: this is an intentional distortion, the interior box columns were not central) central support columns connected with the bedrock, hot spots of puddled molten steel were discovered more than a month after the collapse. Such persistent and intense residual heat, 70 feet below the surface, in an oxygen starved environment, could explain how these crucial structural supports failed.
Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction of Flushing, N.Y., told AFP that he saw pools of literally molten steel at the World Trade Center. The molten steel was found three, four, and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed, Loizeaux said. He said molten steel was also found at 7 WTC, which collapsed mysteriously in the late afternoon. -American Free Press (9/03/02)
4) The quantity, 2 foot thick of gravel sand and powdered concrete surrounding the WTC, exceeds by multiplies, the quantity of material the FEMA web site identifies being used in the floors. Add to this the cloud of 100 micron finely pulverized concrete, and what happened can only be caused by demolition. Firstly the quantity is such because of the massive concrete core described here. Second, the location of the rebar, centralized in the core structure, makes extremely high pressures possible. Attaining breakage that fine and consistent is impossible without excessively large loading UNLESS absolutely optimum location and distribution is utilized.
Another important point is that the official design show that the only concrete is in the floors and it is LIGHT WEIGHT concrete. Light weight concrete is made from a small amount of very fine silica, vermiculite and flyash with portland cement, then it is foamed or aerated and spread. NO GRAVEL (rock) is used.
Here is an image showing what is only possible with high explosives.
What you have seen in the photo near the top of the page, again below, is the tops of 3" rebar, special high tensile steel, that has broken at a series of welds. The slope of the tops of the steel bars is created because engineers did not want a series of weld joints on the vertical bars horizontally creating a possible line of fracture across the building. The reason the bar are standing and the concrete gone is that the C4 coating on those bars was not viable. The north tower was the first built and old rebar was not yet rotated out of the high security locked storage on site. The concrete was removed by the detonation of the horizontal bar wired to it, leaving the heavy 3" vertical bar standing, momentarily.
Here is the final seconds of the South spire shown in the earlier photo. A violent shock wave from below knocks the remnants of concrete from an area of core wall next to the steel dropping the spire as seen here in an animated gif. (This .gif looses the last frames at times and the last drop is not seen.)
