FEMA Appendix C - WTC 7 Steel
A one-inch column has been reduced to half-inch thickness. Its edges -- which are curled like a paper scroll -- have been thinned to almost razor sharpness.
Gaping holes -- some larger than a silver dollar -- let light shine through a formerly solid steel flange. This Swiss cheese appearance shocked all of the fire-wise professors, who expected to see distortion and bending -- but not holes.

FEMA Casts Doubt on Their Own "Fire-Collapse" Theory and Orders Destruction of the Evidence
Forensic Fire Protection Engineer, Jonathan Barnett / FEMA: "Unable to [Properly Examine the Evidence]."
"When you have a structural failure, you carefully go through the debris field looking at each item, photographing every beam as it collapsed, and every column where it is in the ground. And you pick them up very carefully, and you look at each element. We were unable to do that in the case of Tower 7."
FEMA's Destruction of Evidence
Very little effort was made to preserve the evidence of the unprecedented and unexplained collapses of skyscrapers WTC 1, WTC 2, and Building 7 in lower Manhattan -- easily the three largest and least understood structural failures in World history. Indeed, the evidence was destroyed with remarkable speed and efficiency. The destruction of evidence at a crime scene is illegal.
Up to 800 trucks per day removed all but about 250 pieces of steel from the crime scene, effectively scrubbing it.

6 Years Later, NIST Has Yet to Explain WTC 7 Collapse
"But truthfully, I don't really know. We've had trouble getting a handle on Building No. 7." -- Dr. Shyam Sunder, Acting Director Building and Fire Research Laboratory (NIST)
NIST's WTC7 collapse analysis -- long overdue -- first "decoupled" from Twin Towers' study, has now been outsourced to a private contractor: Applied Research Associates, Albuquerque, NM.
ARA is directed not to examine the 1-7th floors or the 47th floor! (per NIST 3/31/06 Solicitation SB1341-06-Q-0186 a fixed price purchase order awarded to ARA, Inc.)
Why? Is it because that is where the evidence of explosive controlled demolition is found?

BBC Announces WTC 7 Collapse "Due to Structural Weakening" 20 Minutes Before It Happened!
WTC7 Collapsed? It's only 5:07 p.m. EST
BBC WORLD NEWS UPDATE: TERRORISM ATTACKS IN U.S. World Trade Centre destroyed by hijacked planes. Pentagon hit and burning. 4:57 p.m. EST, 23 minutes before Building 7 collapsed at 5:20 p.m.
[Gavin Estler] Now, more on the latest building collapse in New York. You might have heard a few moments ago I was talking about the Salomon building collapsing. And indeed it has. Apparently, that's only a few hundred yards away from where the World Trade Center Towers were. And it seems that this was not a result of a new attack, it was because the building had been weakened during this morning's attacks. We'll probably find out more about that now from our correspondent Jane Standley. Jane, what more can you tell us about the Salomon building and its collapse.
[Jane Standley] Well, only really what you already know. Details are very, very sketchy. There's almost a sense downtown in New York, behind me, down by the World Trade Centers, of just an area completely closed off as the rescue workers try to do their job. But this isn't the first building that has suffered as a result. We know that part of the Marriott Hotel next to the World Trade Center also collapsed as a result of this huge amount of falling debris from 110 floors of the two twin towers of the World Trade Center. As you can see behind me, the Trade Center appears to be still burning. We see these huge clouds of smoke and ash, and we know that behind that is an empty piece of what was a very familiar New York skyline, a symbol of the financial prosperity of this city, but completely disappeared now and New York is still unable to take on board what has happened to them today.
[Gavin Estler] Presumably there were very few people in the Salomon building when it collapsed. I mean, there were, I suppose, fears of possible further collapses around the area.
[Jane Standley] That's what you would hope because this whole downtown area behind me has been completely sealed of and evacuated apart from the emergency workers. That was done by the Mayor Rudy Giuliani much earlier today because, of course, of the dreadful collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. But New York is very much still a city in chaos. The phones are not working properly, the subway lines are not working properly, and we know that down there, near the World Trade Center, there are three schools that are being turned into triage centers for emergency treatment. I know that over in New York Harbor where the famous Statue of Liberty is there is a field hospital where 1,500 people are being treated and we have heard, though it's unconfirmed as yet, that 100 New York City police officers have been taken there as well for treatment. But we do need to confirm those figures for the officers.
[Gavin Estler] It's now, what, some eight hours since the attacks. Is there any estimate yet available of the number of casualties in the World Trade Center?
[Jane Standley] I think we can only go at this point with the words expressed by the Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, that it's too frightening to think how many there could be. We know that it's about almost 300 people on the airliners that were used in these attacks, but you've got to remember, this was 9:00 in the morning on a Tuesday morning. It's busy in downtown Manhattan in the financial district then. The World Trade Center itself has 50,000 workers. There are tens of thousands of tourists that go there every day. The figures are almost too frightening to contemplate. You can understand why nobody yet wants to put a figure on them.
[Gavin Estler] Listening to the Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, a bit earlier, one of his messages was business as usual. You know, we won't let this get us down. But presumably a lot of Manhattan people must have fled the city to Long Island to get away from possible further attacks?
[Jane Standley] Well, a lot of people were certainly trying to. But you remember that very early on all the bridges and tunnels to the city as well as the airports were closed. New York was sealed, essentially. Now we do know that the Long Island Railroad has begun running again to get people out of the city if they can, and people who can't manage to get out and perhaps live in that area, they are being offered accommodation in empty school buildings. But certainly I saw earlier today huge crowds of people desperately trying to walk up upper Manhattan to get as far away as possible. And I think nobody really knows how to go, or where to go, and you have to remember even now I don't think people, it can sink in to people what's happened.
[Gavin Estler] We haven't, for the last hour or so, heard much from the people of Manhattan. You're with them there. What are they saying tonight after this catastrophic attack?
[Jane Standley] As I said, many just cannot believe that this has happened, and I've seen, you know, big, burly men and women with tears in their eyes today, shaking their heads, wondering what on earth is going on. There was a sense of panic, reports from the scene of people just absolutely horrified, and I've already seen some photographs that a man took down in the downtown area and it looks life the aftermath of a huge atom bomb, or something full of debris and like a white carpeting of snow from all the dust and rubbish that had fallen. I don't think people can comprehend. They certainly have lost any feeling of safety. There's still a great pride in the city, people are determined to fight back, but a great sense of shock and loss. People keep looking at the sky, for example, where you can see the plume of smoke and say, when that's gone, it won't be there anymore. Our twin towers won't be there. Such a symbol of New York.
[Gavin Estler] Are they talking yet about revenge and what the government should do to counter this threat or are they numb still?
[Jane Standley] I think people are still numb and I don't think people are talking about revenge in that way at all yet. I think people are still too traumatized. We don't know how many people have been killed. We can't even put a figure, I think when you talk to people on they don't even say how many people might have been killed and injured. And I think that feeling of the ___ of the devastation, people don't really know what to say or what to think. I think they feel the bubble of their security being in America has definitely been popped. This city in this country will not be the same. But they don't really know where turn. That's the very sad thing. I think there's going to be a lot of very, very traumatized people. This has hit them very, very hard.
[Gavin Estler] I think many of us, when we heard the news perhaps on the radio earlier today were completely flabbergasted by it and just couldn't comprehend it.
I mean, it almost sounded too far fetched. I was wondering what it felt like for you being in Manhattan ... Well, unfortunately, I think we've lost the line with Jane Standley in Manhattan. Perhaps we can rejoin her and follow that up later.

WTC 7: Disturbing Implications
If Building 7 was a controlled demolition, and since the necessary resources and months of planning, execution and planting of explosives requires a conspiracy, and the building was demolished on 9/11, then, it is a reasonable assumption that WTC 7 must have been a part of the overall conspiracy of 9/11. And since we've already shown that Al Qaeda didn't have access to this highly secure building, the conspirators must have been someone who did have such access.

"John Skilling and Les Robertson were the structural engineers who designed the streamlined steel frames of the Twin Towers in the 1960's.
Because a wayward army bomber flew into the Empire State Building in 1945, the towers were built with skyscraper crashes in mind."
[Leslie E. Robertson, Structural Engineer] "We had designed the project for the impact of the largest airplane of its time ...
the Boeing 707.
That is, to take this jet airplane, run it into the building, destroy a lot of structure, and still have it stand up."
[Frank A. DeMartini, Manager, WTC Construction & Project Management] "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 probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners, because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door.
This intense grid. And the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting.
It really does nothing to the screen netting."
[Leslie E. Robertson, Structural Engineer] "To the best of my knowledge, the considerations of the fuel in the airplane in terms of an explosion or a great fire, was not considered. Now, we were not responsible for that aspect of the design."
Imagine, building expressly for airplane impact, but never thinking of the fuel.

Deceptive Illustrations from PBS Nova -- "Why the Towers Fell"
This model is typical of the deceptive illustrations misrepresenting the structural core of the building to look like mysterious floating horizontal slabs -- no core columns shown!
This model is from an animated sequence of falling floor trusses -- also very misleading. Missing are both the perpendicular cross trusses that would prevent this behavior, as well as the concrete filled steel floor decking. The floor pan also serves to interconnect the trusses and provide stiffness and strength to the entire floor system.

abc NEWS LIVE COVERAGE
WORLD TRADE CENTER, NEW YORK
"Anybody who has ever watched a building being demolished on purpose knows that if you're going to do this you have to get at the under infrastructure of a building and bring it down."
"The entire building has just collapsed as if a demolition team set off ... when you see the old demolitions of these old buildings, it folded down on itself and it is not there anymore."
"At 10:30 I tried to leave the building, but as soon as I got outside I heard a second explosion. And another rumble. And more smoke. And more dust. I ran inside the buildings, the chandeliers shook, and again, black smoke filled the air. Within another five minutes we were covered again with more silt and more dust and then a fire marshal came in and said we had to leave because if there was a third explosion, this building might not last."
"All of a sudden there was this big explosion. I don't know if -- just like what you just seen, that's what we went through before we came out of the building."
[Stephen Evans, North American Business Correspondence] "There was another big, big explosion in the other tower. Flames coming out and just billowing grey smoke. People still not panicking. People not quite understanding what was going on. Then somebody said that they saw an airliner go into one of those towers. Then, an hour later than that, we had that big explosion from much much lower. I don't know what on earth caused that. Whatever the cause, the terribleness, the hugeness of what's happened, so huge in fact that most of the people around simply can't understand what happened.

"The Destruction of the World Trade Center: Why the Official Story Cannot Be True," by David Ray Griffin
Comments on the Oral Histories of 9/11 Emergency Workers: Explosions, Flashes, Bombs, etc.
"Deputy Commissioner Thomas Fitzpatrick said, 'It looked like sparkling around one specific layer of the building. My initial reaction was that this was exactly the way it looks when they show you those implosions on TV.'
"A few witnesses spoke of horizontal ejection. [Fire] Chief Frank Cruthers said: 'There was what appeared to be an explosion. It appeared at the very top simultaneously from all four sides. Material shot out horizontally, and then there seemed to be a momentary delay before you could see the beginning of the collapse.'
"Now that's very important because defenders of the official theory say that these horizontal ejections were caused when the floors collapsed and pushed the material out. So listen to Firefighter James Curran who said, 'I looked back and I heard like every floor went chu-chu-chu. I looked back and from the pressure, everything was getting blown out of the floors BEFORE it actually collapsed.'
"If all these firefighters and medical workers witnessed all these phenomena suggestive of controlled demolition, you might be wondering why you have not heard much about this. Part of the answer is probably provided by Auxiliary Lt. Fireman Paul Issac having said that 'There were definitely bombs in those buildings.' Isaac added that, 'Many other firemen know that there were bombs in the buildings but they're afraid for their jobs to admit it because higher-ups forbid discussion of this fact.'
Core Area Columns Easily Accessible from Elevators
47 CORE COLUMNS ADJACENT TO ~50 ELEVATOR SHAFTS
Each core column is adjacent to one of up to 50 elevator shafts (or utility rooms on upper floors), making it relatively easy to set the charges without detection.
