Top down demolition

One of the arguments that debunkers like to repeat over and over is that controlled demolitions always start from the bottom of a building. I guess this means that the video below does not show a controlled demolition.

Great video! Richard Gage

Great video!

Richard Gage also has a top down demolition (two step) in his presentation but this video is still better and corroborating to the argument, so HE SHOULD SEE THIS TOO !

This is his presentation "How the towers fell". If you haven't seen it yet, please do.

Great find sir.

The "it was top down, so it cant be CD" argument is so bad I was surprised to see it used. Thanks.

Top Down with Basement Explosions FIRST

In the case of the WTC twin towers, there were strategic basement explosions first--followed by a carefully timed top-down demolition sequence; to facilitate a perfect symmetrical collapse of the towers into nice manageable piles--ready to be carted away.

When a controlled demolition implosion is being carried out on a tall building, there are often strategic pre-explosions to weaken and fracture the basement sub-structure to effectively create a cavity into which the building will fall. This was essential for the WTC twin towers because of the 110 stories worth of debris that came crashing down. The resulting demolition pile was so minimal because the volume of the contents of the upper floors was effectively thrown into the basement below.

There were several basement explosions preceding the top-down demolition sequence, and there are dozens of living witnesses to testify to that. Among them is Carpenter Marlene Cruz:

On September 12, 2001, Peter Jennings interviews Marlene Cruz, a carpenter injured in one of the pre-collapse explosions in the WTC, sub-basement level B, before the planes hit the towers. She was the first casualty of 9/11 admitted at Bellevue Hospital. Cruz is a living witness whose testimony proves that pre-planted explosives were used to weaken the foundations of the towers as part of a well-planned controlled demolition. This clip was taken from original, unedited archive footage of ABC's broadcast on 9/12.


Has anybody...

talked to her after that? has she given any more interviews? It would be great to hear what she has to say regarding the timing and place of the explosions. Her testimony could be a great asset.

Good question

I am wondering that myself. Perhaps I will sniff around a bit more, as I was the one who uncovered that clip from the original archive file--I may as well pick up where it left off. There are several ways to track her down and potentially make contact. I'll start this weekend and report back when I have results!

Cruz's testimony in this interview is neither clouded by the passage of time nor susceptible to any allegation of personal agenda. It's a time capsule of testimony, qualifying as admissible evidence in a court proceeding.


I agree completley.

Also note the large amounts of smoke rising from the bottoms moments before the main sequence.
and a time lapse is in (the error has been cut from the end)

I agree but note that much

I agree but note that much of the building was pulverized and blown out of the footprint by large extent, so not the whole building was put into the basement. That is another reason for the "pile" not being very high.


and that is an important thing to note. The tons of debris being pulverized and ejected laterally certainly did help produce a smaller demolition pile. That fact also further deflates the ridiculous argument that the "weight of the collapsing floors above caused the floors below to fall"


It's surreal...

... that she is talking about *explosions* and the interviewer doesn't pay any attention to that.

I also find it funny how apologists of the official story try to explain the explosions as gas etc. exploding. If there were explosions for any reason, surely their role in the collapse should have been an important thing to document and examine!

Someone please try to find and talk with Marlene.

Note, however, that nowhere does she say that the explosion occurred before the plane struck.

More info?

What building is this?
What's the date?
What company did the job?

Jumbo Jets Can Not Demolish Skyscrapers.

did some research:

Building: building 7 (don't know how to say that in Chinese)

Date:9/11/2001 (nobody knew that this building had collapsed exept Pres. Bush who saw it on live TV waiting at an elemental school)

Demolition Company: Bush administration inc. ft. Larry -"pullit" S.)

(update:the BBC reported that this building had collapsed before it was hit by an airplane, actually before the BBC existed. They also reported that "Conspiracy Theorists" claimed that it was a controlled demolition because ik resembles one. An expert exlained to the BBC viewers that this couldn't be the case because CD's ALWAYS start at the bottom...)

;-) (I hope nobody minds..especially Webster Tarpley who wants the 911 truth movement to be "academically compliant" or something)

I don't have any details

I don't have any details about the building being imploded. I was browsing through a collection of unsorted video files i still had on my HDD when i found it. I guess i have downloaded it some time ago and forgot about it.

I'll see if i can find some more information about it.

Please watch my movie: WTC7 The Smoking Gun of 9/11


Please send this to "Dr." Michael Shermer at Skeptic magazine, who had the gall to use this defense on the Colbert Report not long ago.

Perhaps when you send him the video you could also point out, as debunkers like to say about Dr. David Ray Griffin, that Shermer's PhD is in "the history of science," and therefore he is not credentialed to speak on such matters. On the other hand, these people are.

OWNED! Now if they hadn't

OWNED! Now if they hadn't have stripped the walls and done everything that's required for a legal safe demolition, I wonder how it would have looked then.

Here's my write up.

One of the main arguments defenders of the official story have made against the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers is that demolitions never start at the top of the building. In other words, they claim that demolitions always start at the bottom and proceed upwards.

However, a new video shows an example of a top-down demolition of another building:

Thanks to Arie for the heads up.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so streaming video is worth what 30,000 words/sec?

Thank you so much for digging this up!

When watching that confirmation of our intuition after all these years...

When it first went off, I thought I was watching the actual towers going down again for a spit second.

Here is a pretty in depth presentation that has not been posted up here to my knowledge.
