NIST Video - Malfunctioning Elevator in WTC Tower
More NIST video stuff for you. Admittedly, this goes directly into the "highly speculative" category. Often, people will ask how could people have access to the towers and their infrastructure in order to place the explosives that would be needed for an explosive demolition? Yes, I know about the Securacom Security and Marvin Bush connection, but that doesn't address the practical, logistical manner in which something like this could occur.
Well, listening again to NIST videos led to me this interview that Peter Jennings did live on ABC News with an ABC reporter, Don Daylor, who was near the scene after both towers were destroyed. What does Daylor say? Very clearly he says that he knows that "...for at least a month" one of the towers was having problems with a malfunctioning elevator, and in particular an elevator that went all the way to the top of the building. As I understand it, there were so-called 'express' elevators in the towers that covered lots of distance, and other so-called 'local' elevators that made smaller trips. Presumably, if you were having problems with an elevator for at least a month, that means people were coming and going trying to repair it, right? That would put some people at the core infrastructure of the tower, right? For at least a month... The kind of time needed to get the job done. Top to bottom. As I said, speculative, but interesting nonetheless.
