Engineer questioning 9/11

Official explanation defies basic laws of physics

By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD — Like most Americans, Jonathan Cole was shocked by the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001.
And like most Americans, Cole, an engineer and president of Giffels Webster Engineering, initially accepted official explanations for the towers’ destruction, but no longer.
The science doesn’t work, according to Cole, who has produced a series of simple experiments and videos that call into question the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s and other official findings on the disaster.
In late 2007, Cole began questioning all he heard when he was a sent a video of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. The video shows the building collapsing down on itself, much like the twin towers; however, WTC 7 wasn’t struck by an aircraft.

Texas Engineer Gets SAVAGE on 9/11 Truth

These "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth" are relentless in the effort to reveal the truth about 9/11. Derek, an engineer from Texas, actively engages Michael Savage about 9/11 Truth. Derek encourages us all "to DO SOMETHING", to take an active role in disseminating 9/11 Truth.

Engineer Demands 9/11 Truth Police Chief

I am forwarding the following I received from Donald C. Meserlian, P.E., from New Jersey, who has signed in support of the petition at ae911truth.org as a professional engineer.

His action can be duplicated by anyone, and he welcomes feedback on attempts to challenge those taking sworn oaths to uphold and defend the US Constitution. His information, in contrast to the work of Dr. Judy Wood, shows indisputable evidence of building-take-downs on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center in New York City.

Why the towers fell: Two theories

By William Rice

Posted March 1, 2007

Having worked on structural steel buildings as a civil engineer in the era when the Twin Towers were designed and constructed, I found some disturbing discrepancies and omissions concerning their collapse on 9/11.

I was particularly interested in the two PBS documentaries that explained the prevailing theories as determined by two government agencies, FEMA and NIST (National Institute of Science and Technology). The first (2002) PBS documentary, Why the Towers Fell, discussed how the floor truss connectors failed and caused a “progressive pancake collapse.”

The subsequent 2006 repackaged documentary Building on Ground Zero explained that the connectors held, but that the columns failed, which is also unlikely. Without mentioning the word “concrete,” the latter documentary compared the three-second collapse of the concrete Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building with that of the Twin Towers that were of structural steel. The collapse of a concrete-framed building cannot be compared with that of a structural steel-framed building.

Since neither documentary addressed many of the pertinent facts, I took the time to review available material, combine it with scientific and historic facts, and submit the following two theories for consideration.
