That Magical Thermite Stuff
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth posted an article promoting the recent debate between Richard Gage and Chris Mohr, which Pat and I both covered. One thing stuck out in the article which I missed though. Oddly enough, they consider this a selling point for their whacky theories.
Further along in the debate, after Gage showed the WTC 7 collapse video adjacent to a known controlled demolition Chris Mohr, ignored the visual similarity and noted that “they sound completely different”.
Gage: Well, of course they do. One is using high-energy explosives, and the other thermate, an incendiary. This is, after all, a deceptive, controlled demolition.
Of course Gage fails to mention that he has repeatedly, including in this very debate, referred to massive explosions and explosives at World Trade Center 7. In fact a Google Search for World Trade Center 7 explosives on their site returns an astounding 12,300 hits, including their homepage. Including, but certainly not limited to:
WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:
AE911Truth points in particular to the destruction of the third skyscraper, World Trade Center 7, a 47-story building which was not hit by an aircraft, yet came down in pure free-fall acceleration for at least 100 feet according to the official government engineering investigation (NIST), and in the exact manner of a classic controlled demolition. The implications are startling. The group bases its conclusions solely on forensic evidence and does not speculate as to who may have planted the explosives.
David Ray Griffin has provided a comprehensive dismantling of NIST's theory about WTC 7, according to which it suffered global collapse because of ordinary building fires. Besides showing that NIST committed massive scientific fraud, Griffin also points out that NIST was able to complete its theory only by affirming a miracle: a steel-framed high-rise building coming down in free fall even though explosives had not been used to remove its columns.
So the inescapable and disturbing conclusion is that the most scientific theory available for the WTC 7 collapse is that it was a controlled demolition, brought down with explosives.
In yet another key eyewitness testimonial, right before the building [WTC 7] fell, former Air Force medic Kevin McPadden reports hearing one end of a conversation, on a radio being held by a Red Cross worker, that has serious implications: “At the last few seconds he took his hand off [the radio] and you heard, ‘three, two, one…,’”
Do fires bring buildings down to countdowns? Soon after, McPadden described tremendous explosions boomed. He made it clear that these were explosions, that he was not confusing them with other loud sounds such as floors falling.
Of course, when asked about the lack of sounds, Gage always denies this and says that they used silent incendiaries, not explosives. Once again, trutherism is a mythology, not a science.
