E-mail exchange with controlled demolition "expert" Paul Nicholas Worsey

The appeal to authority via “trust the experts”

- exposed!

As I watched a docu on Controlled Demolition Inc. I noticed an “expert” cited in there,
Paul Nicholas Worsey, professor of mining engineering at University of Missouri at Rolla.

I wondered what his thoughts about the insights of the dutch controlled demolition expert Danny Jowenko
regarding WTC 7 were.

Remember, the one who was stunned as he saw the pictures of WTC 7 fell in 6.6 secs into its own footprint
on the afternoon on 911 and said: “This is controlled demolition”.


So I mailed him. This is my email exchange, read bottom to top, please!

(See appendix .pdf, about 130kb)

Now that’s interesting how he deals this info- he just got over it with saying: “Never heard of the guy” eventually to undermine Jowenkos science ground.

As one can only be an expert if he knew him. Instead of looking at the website of Jowenko,


where he could have learned in a second that indeed Jovenko is an expert, even netherlands most famous demolition expert, and Jowenkos company Jowenko Explosieve Demolitie B.V. is well known there.

Immediately he turned to “lunatics” and “aliens”, as if this namecalling is a matter to the facts.

It seems that we have to deal with a new sort of “science”, best “science” money can buy.

Just ask the many physicists who cannot express doubts about the 9/11 Commission Report because their careers depend entirely on federal government grants.
Paul Craig Roberts


Where do Paul Nicholas Worsey gets his money from?

We should ask every cited “expert” first where they get their money from before we hear them, as we know that 911 was an Inside Job.

Sorry, actually it's


w like world wide web...nevermind!


The 911 blogger link is correct but I do get the message page does not exist, but only in this post, not if I copy and paste it to another blank page?

He answered me once again:

I would blame it partially on the Civils. They use a factor of safety of 4 because they are not confident about what they design. I saw a documentary on the building and I was surprised how it was constructed.
So it's not a surprise that it came down.



Let me first thank you for your new response and your openess.

But Sir!
Do not try to fool me!
Even as you are a professor and I am not - I am not dumb.
I have experience in the field of construction as I am a construction site manager for large construiction projects,
and even if I am not an engineer but a businessman I understand enough of building activity.
I guess you mean the PBS-Nova-documentary: "How the towers fell", but it would be nice if you can clarify to which
documentary you refer.
The 911 truth movement did examined this hypothesis, too, and rejected it for many good reasons. Let us examine your claim!

If the building was poorly constructed, there a way too many players who knew.
The archtitecs, the owner, the building supervision, the construction companies, the construction site managers.
If you ever built such a large building like a 47 story highscraper you wouldn't suggest such a vast conspiracy can happen.
There are just too much who knew and there are only minor reasons why the do not come forward and blow the whistle.

Even if we assume there were civil sues and fees in the millions as potential result. Why should everyone who knows remain silent?
That's the next point: If the WTC 7 was indeed poorly constructed, we would likely have a witch-hunt for the guilty.
The architect would accuse the owner, the owner the construction company and vice versa and so on.
But you suggest in this case that all of the conspirators agreed immediately to surpress this info and to cover-up instead.
That's ridiculess, at least.

The next point: What a motive could the goverment have to not make a serious investigation, if we assume "poor construction" is the real reason for the collapse?
There is just no need to hide the proof of failure. It's the same with the alleged overall "failure" of the Bushist. If this all was "failure",
why wasn't anybody hold accountable? Do you suggest that the government covered-up the NY Port Authorities "failure"?
Again, how many actors knew, why do they not come forward? What is the reason to stay silent? Come on, to cover the guilt of the authority?

If we assume a controlled demolition, the conspiracy would not necessarily need to be that big. Only the owner and the demolition crew need to know.
All other parties concerned would agree on every story to explain this, because the harm that the real truth does for ones mind is way bigger than simple "poor construction". Got my point?

Eventually the "poor construction-hypothesis" is the next limited hang-out theory, but any thinking men have to reject this.

But besides all this: We already knew that Building 7 was demolished in a controlled way.
We have the testimony of a US ascendancies independet controlled demolition expert. Danny Jowenko. Nobody can put his reputation away.
He is the front man of the leading durch demolotion company. He says the truth, as he watched a controlled demolition, probably one of the best ones ever.
There are flashed visible travelling from bottom to top. The penthouse went first. The building breaks and fell to the middle.
The whole building fell in 6.6 sec. onto its own footprint. The dust. The eyewitness. The explosions. The forewarnings. The media oblivion. None explanation to this day.
Even the confession of the owner, Larry Silverstein, who said in PBS documentary "America Rebuilds": "We made the decision to pull it".
http://www.911blogger.com/node/6195 http://www.911blogger.com/node/6078 http://www.911blogger.com/node/5891

So, I can understand to some degree that your conflicts of interest, the clima of fear and surpression or such kind of stuff does not allow you to speek the truth.
But I urge you to overthink your point of view. America and the world deserves better than this way of "hear no devil, see no devil, speak no devil because of self-interest.

PS: The safety factor of 4 is no explanation for the lack of trust in the own buildings, it is common rule because of security reasons, and as you mentioned it, every building is designed to withstand all possible and thinkable dangers. We can easily assume so was WTC7.

I recieved no answer on my latest

response. And after I discovered that the "poorly constructed" line was a blatant lie, I'll let him noticed that I learned the facts:

Fr 02.03.2007 15:35

Dear Mr. Worsey: Did you know that?

Aside from the fact that previous to 9/11 no steel framed building in history had ever collapsed due to fire damage, Building 7, otherwise known as the Salomon Brothers building, was intentionally designed to allow large portions of floors to be permanently removed without weakening the structural integrity of the building.

In 1989 the New York Times reported on this fact in a story covering the Salomon leasing of the building which had been completed just two years earlier.

Salomon had wanted to build a new structure in order to house its high-technology operations, but due to stock market crash in 1987 it was unable to. The company searched for an existing building that they could use and found one in Larry Silverstein's WTC 7.

The Times reported:

BEFORE it moves into a new office tower in downtown Manhattan, Salomon Brothers, the brokerage firm, intends to spend nearly two years and more than $200 million cutting out floors, adding elevators, reinforcing steel girders, upgrading power supplies and making other improvements in its million square feet of space...

In some office buildings, that alteration would be impossible, but Silverstein Properties tried to second-guess the needs of potential tenants when it designed Seven World Trade Center as a speculative project.

''We built in enough redundancy to allow entire portions of floors to be removed without affecting the building's structural integrity, on the assumption that someone might need double-height floors,'' said Larry Silverstein, president of the company. ''Sure enough, Salomon had that need...

MORE than 375 tons of steel - requiring 12 miles of welding - will be installed to reinforce floors for Salomon's extra equipment. Sections of the existing stone facade and steel bracing will be temporarily removed so that workers using a roof crane can hoist nine diesel generators onto the tower's fifth floor, where they will become the core of a back-up power station.

The entire article can be read here.


And did you hear about the early BBC reporting on its collapse?




Sitting Bull

I personally know Dr. Worsey as I am taking his demolition class. We actually talked about what happened to the WTC and I cant believe that you went off on what he said. Basically he just dismissed you and you got on here and started ranting and raving about how he is part of some conspiracy and where does he get his money from. Well, I will tell you where he does NOT get his money from. He does not get his money from entertaining idiotic notions of controlled demolition on the WTC killing thousands of people. No self respectable blasting technician would ever think of blasting in those conditions, or really even entertaining your delusions of grandeur. You sir, are a lunatic, and quite possibly a space alien, b/c any idiot knows that it's a lot easier to run a plane into a building than to take it down with demolitons, and not have anybody other than a few quacks and nuts figure it out. I think you should spend more time writing fiction and leave the science and engineering to the professionals. btw who is this so called "expert" in demoliton?? I have never heard of the guy and he's from a foreign country. Have you actually ever seen the guy take down a building before or did you just read his website and figure he must be a professional because quite frankly, I could have my g/f make me a website in 15 minutes to say that I am the leading expert in blasting in any language I want. And the safety factor of four is actually built in to structures for the what-if scenariaos and just to make sure. there is a lot of liability involved in buildings and its better to be safe than sorry. You twist everything that everyone says until it fits perfectly into your little world of aliens and government conspiracys and if you do not like what I have to say, then God bless it, this is America and you dont have to read it!

"I personally know Dr. Worsey as I am taking his demolition class"
yes, its obvious.

LOL . absolutely ridicoulus ...
is that the last line of denfense ???

Controlled demolition expert Danny Jowenko being interviewed for a Dutch television news documentary called Zembla Investigates 9/11 Theories. The entire program can be watched for free on Google Video...

Zembla Investigates 9/11 Theories
Original Broadcast on Dutch National Television, September 10, 2006

This Dutch television documentary looks into the existing "9/11 conspiracy theories" as discussed in films like Loose Change 2nd edition. In cooperation with Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands as well as the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory and Holland's top expert on controlled demolitions (Danny Jowenko), the documentary makers researched the likelihood of these theories.

Below is the raw unedited video footage of Danny Jowenko being interviewed about WTC-7 for Zembla, which includes footage of him being shown FEMA's report on WTC-7, as well as NIST's damage assessment for the South side of Building 7 and their reasons for why the building fell down....

This footage can also be found here:

Six months after this documentary first aired, Mr. Jowenko was interviewed again by telephone and asked if he'd studied WTC-7 further since his first interview for Dutch Television and if he still believed WTC-7 fell as a result of controlled demolition. Mr. Jowenko explained that he has. However, he still "absolutely" believes that WTC-7 was brought down by explosives...
LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QajDxF9uEf4

When he was first interviewed for Zembla Investigates 9/11 Theories, he explained that he did not believe that people could have planted explosives in the towers. However, Mr. Jowenko clearly had a bias and obviously hadn't researched their destruction beyond the official story and was apparently not familiar with unconventional 'top down' demolition method. He also had not been presented with WTC-7 information before he made his comments about the towers.

Today, Jowenko is convinced that WTC-7 was indeed a controlled demolition based on his 30 years of experience performing conventional 'bottom up' demolitions, and that the USA is covering up the truth about what really happened on 9/11. His current research and opinion regarding the Twin Towers is unknown at this time.

Danny Jowenko owns a demolition firm called Jowenko Exposieve Demolitie B.V..

Information about his company's qualifications can be found posted on their website:

Mr. Jowenko is also listed on ImplosionWorld.com's website as being one of their licensed blasters and associates":

On behalf of Miners

You folks are nuts. I agree with Floyd, as I am a fellow student with him. No self respecting demolitions expert would think about taking a job such as this. To understand the physics and dynamics of a failing structure, you must have a background that involves some extreme classtime in statics, dynamics, thermodynamics, explosives, materials, and a stupid amount of math. I know, I'm doing it right now. I highly doubt that there are people in industry that would sign thier names to that. YOU ASKED AN EXPERT AND HE TOLD YOU. Boo hoo, it didn't line up with what you wanted to hear. Danny Jowenko is never mentioned on his website, even the name Danny is never mentioned. In fact, there are ZERO employees listed on his website. There is no email for any specific person that works for Jowenko, just info@jowenko.nl. As far as his explanation goes, "it failed at the bottom first." No shit. That's where the most load was. Building 7 was not designed in the same way that the Buildings 1 and 2 were. Jowenko said very clearly that the 13th and 14th floors were still standing, which would have required demolitions experts on the 14th floor doing a precision demolition in circa 7 hours. Damn near impossible, and just as dangerous. Often times, the first people to admit a wrongdoing are the people who did it. The fact that you have brought this to the table seems to have all the fingers pointing at you. As far as where Dr. Worsey, yes he has a degree in explosives, gets his money from, he works for it. Like I do, like ths soldiers in Iraq do, and every true American. He doesn't sit around and blog all day about something he can't prove. He has better things to do. If you don't trust our government, leave. It's that simple.

This was not a job by a controlled demolition

company. This was most likely a military commando.

Worsey depends on US money, Jowenko not. So this is the most probably explanation for their different opinion.

Your mistrust against Jowenko is baseless, Zembla, the durch magazine, is a trustworthy journalism entity, and Jowenkos demolition company for real.

And by no way a controlled demolition means that they had done the job in 7 hours. Just another silly assumption brought to us only by the oct shills.

Yes that's what the founding fathers taught us...NOT

"If you don't trust our government, leave. It's that simple."

You sir are an ignoramus if you think that's what people should do if they don't trust their government!


And Danny Jowenko most certainly is an expert in the demolition industry. If you have questions regarding his qualifications, I advise you to contact Implosion World, since they feel he's qualified enough to have him listed on their website as being a licensed blaster and associate:

Also try contacting Dutch television's "Zembla" and request Mr. Jowenko's qualifications:

By the way, there are lots of companies who don't list their employee email addresses. Search the Controlled Demolition Inc. website and see how many you find there:

Danny Jowenko's opinion that the building was demolished by explosives is also supported by structural experts such as ETH Professors Dr. Hugo Bachmann & Jörg Schneider:

"WTC-7 was with the greatest probability brought down by controlled demolition done by experts."

Hugo Bachmann & Jörg Schneider – Professors Emeritus, Structural Engineering, ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).

Eating Crow

I would actually prefer chicken, but if your serving crow I would like it fried with sides of green beans and taters with gravy. Since you showed me up so bad I am finally going to tell you what really happened. President Bush is probably going to have me assasinated for telling you how this huge conspiracy works but here it is...

One day President Bush, Dr. Worsey, and some space aliens were BBQing down at the presidents ranch in Texas and they were discussing the economy. They were talking about how to find jobs for stupid people. Well... Dr. Worsey says "The job of President of the United States is already taken, so we are gonna have to find different jobs for all the idiots." President Bush didnt get the joke, not that it's a joke or anything, more like a mere statement of the facts. Well the space aliens, remember those guys, well they say that a lot of idiots like to invent conspiracy's and believe in stupid things like space aliens. The light goes off in Dr. Worseys eyes and he has a plan. So for the next couple of months him and Bush devise a plan to demolish the WTC and make it look like the Arabs did it so Bush could go to Iraq and finish what his daddy started and maybe get some fatherly approval. What Bush sr. didnt tell little "W" is the only way to control the "ragheads" is to torture them and kill their families. Well since American media wont let Americans do fun stuff like rape torture and kill, the iraqis cant be controlled and you get what you have now. But i'm getting off point here. The space aliens used beaming technology to plant Dr. Worsey's government funded explosives into the WTC and blow it up after drone planes were remotely flown into the buildings. The pictures of people leaping to their death to escape the flames were created by George Lucas and Steven Spielburg. They also created a bunch of other special effects to make the scene look real, but thats not really important. Then the government made up new social security numbers and basically invented people who supposedly died in the attack. All the grief stricken widows are actually paid actresses who couldnt make it in hollywood and are mostly hired by George Lucas and Steven Spielburg. The aliens get to probe all the enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay that they want and that is why they helped Bush with his little conspiracy. The plus side is that a lot of people who normally would be doing things like playing world of warcraft or dungeons and dragons now get to be self important, and if somebody blows them off then the self important little conspiracy theorists gets to add a whole big hoopla about what some blaster in the netherlands who never researched the thing said might have happened. I hope you like your crow fried and served with a side of fatback and chitlings cuz thats what i'm serving you for supper, right before Prez. Bush reads this and has me assasinated for telling the whole truth about 911.
