Debunking the 9/11 “Dust” Theory

Some peripheral folks in the 9/11 truth movement claim that exotic high-energy weapons were used to bring down the Twin Towers. The overwhelming majority of credible scientists, engineers and others in the movement do not believe this.

The proponents of the star wars weapons theory argue that video footage shows metal spires “turning to dust”, which they think proves that futuristic weapons were used.

Many of us have pointed out that the spires actually fell down, and that dust from the pulverized concrete simply fell off the spires as they were falling, hiding the fact that the spires were falling and creating the visual illusion that the spires were “turning to dust”. For example, Reprehensor posted this video clip last year:

This matter has now been settled. Specifically, the following newly-released video shows the spire collapse from a different angle. the video proves that the spires of the Twin Towers merely fell over:

(12 seconds into the video)

This video – shot by the same person as the one above – shows that World Trade Center Building 7 did not have any big fires when it suddenly collapsed:

The government’s theory that fire alone brought down Building 7 makes about as much sense as the argument that high-energy weapons brought down the Twin Towers.

    i’m fairly aware of the competing theories but i don’t ever recall hearing this one pop up.I don’t believe the official story and i’m leaning heavily towards cheney being the government controller of the 9/11 project.it was most certainly an inside job.

    It is indeed amazing how Scholars split up into the BEAM (exotic weapons – Judy Wood) and TERMITE (explosive cutters – Steven Jones) camps. The split itself is deplorable and bad for the movement.With Judy Wood the no-time-for-bomb-placement issue is solved and with Steven Jones the black-budget-above-top-secret issue is solved.Judy Wood goes over face value photo observations (best choice of source however authenticity question always applies) of the day from above and in Manhattan and surroundings and aftermath without explicit conclusions. Steven Jones gives a chemical analysis of the dust (best choice of source however authenticity question always applies) and explains the technique for melting steel blocks by use of a chemical compount.For both of them the identical way and speed of the two buildings collapsing and desintegrating beyond recognition supports their approach.However, the common people still aren’t listening, let stand interested. It’s just beyond a war protest, which is already to tough for the infantile consumer career chaser.

    Buy World of Kung fu Gold is the chance. I always have a bad dream when my account was theft, since I buy World of Kung fu Gold ; I had not had the bad memory. At present, I want to say thanks to the people who stole my account, if he did not to do that, I would not play game, I would not have WoKf gold . Although I have little cheap World of Kung fu Gold , I will on the way of the game for long time. At one time or another, I am a pessimistic person, but when I have World of Kung fu money , it changes my attitude of life.

    Do you like playing in the game which you need to use requiem gold, when you do not have requiem lant, you must borrow requiem money from friends, or you buy cheap requiem lant. If you get requiem online gold, you can continue this game.

    Whether or not high energy weapons may have been used is irrelevant – the only important question is whether the buildings were destroyed by plane impact and / or subsequent fire. If one can show that the buildings were not destroyed by plane impact or fire, then controlled demolition would be left as the cause of collapse.

    Controlled demolition cannot be organised in just a few hours – it would have to be planned days or weeks in advance. Thus, if the buildings were demolished, whoever planned this would have to have known about the impending plane crashes some time in advance and hence would have to be linked to planning the plane crashes and the 9-11 event as a whole.

    It would not be necessary to show that all three towers were destroyed by demolition – it would be enough to show that only one building was destroyed by pre-planned demolition. To pre-plan to demolish even one building would demonstrate advance knowledge of and planning for the events of 9-11.

    The case on WTC-7 (“Building 7″) seems conclusive – this was a conventional steel-framed building of modern construction. No building of this type has ever collapsed due to fire and many buildings of this type have survived very severe and extensive fires. This building was not hit by a plane. The fire in this building before collapse was not severe. The mode of collapse was not congruent with buckling due to softening of the steel by fire – the building collapsed at free-fall speed, uniformly, symmetrically, into its own footprint. This does not correspond to any known failure mode for steel-framed buildings of this type. The only plausible explanation for the observed pattern of collapse is controlled demolition.

    Having proved that WTC-7 was destroyed by controlled demolition, it is not necessary to look into the other buildings in great detail. However, the evidence is there – e.g. for WTC-1 and 2 (the “Twin Towers”) there is also strong evidence of controlled demolition, due to the box girders being neatly severed by cuts at 45 degree angles, as if made by shaped charges. This could not be caused by the processes of collapse.

    There is strong evidence to suggest specific US government figures were instrumental in the plane crashes, e.g. Dick Cheney, who organised diversionary air defence exercises for that day, and Donald Rumsfeld, who took shoot-down authority from the Air Force and transferred it to himself, shortly before 9-11.

    What more do you need to know?
