Top Down Demolition Plus Official Witness Statements from the Oral Histories

 by Scott Creighton (reposted from Sept. 21, 2007)

debunking sites love to claim that buildings are never demoed from the top down, and therefore the Towers couldn’t have been demoed via cutter charges and blast cord in a controled demolition. If you freeze it at the moment of the explosion, you can see the straight lines of orange flash, where the blast cord is igniting.

Oh really?

That dust cloud look familiar?

but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down.” Stephen Gregory – Assistant Commissioner (F.D.N.Y.)

 See the rest of the article for more eyewitness statements from 9/11.

Karin Deshore – Captain (E.M.S.) 

“Somewhere around the middle of the World Trade Center, there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode. The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then a red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as I could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building.”

Brian Dixon – Battalion Chief (F.D.N.Y.)

“I was watching the fire, watching the people jump and hearing a noise and looking up and seeing – it actually looked – the lowest floor of fire in the south tower actually looked like someone had planted explosives around it because the whole bottom I could see – I could see two sides of it and the other side – it just looked like that floor blew out. I looked up and you could actually see everything blew out on the one floor. I thought, geez, this looks like an explosion up there, it blew out.”

Thomas Fitzpatrick – Deputy Commissioner for Administration (F.D.N.Y.)

We looked up at the building straight up, we were that close. All we saw was a puff of smoke coming from about 2 thirds of the way up. Some people thought it was an explosion. I don’t think I remember that. I remember seeing it, it looked like sparkling around one specific layer of the building. I assume now that that was either windows starting to collapse like tinsel or something. Then the building started to come down. My initial reaction was that this was exactly the way it looks when they show you those implosions on TV.

Stephen Gregory – Assistant Commissioner (F.D.N.Y.)

“…when I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down, that I saw low-level flashes. In my conversation with Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I thought – at that time I didn’t know what it was. I mean, it could have been as a result of the building collapsing, things exploding, but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down.”

  1. I wonder how scientists will re-create the collapse of the WTC? Computer models? They can’t very well build a hundred story building, only to blow it up.

  2. They already did that Zooey, with the NIST report, and they had to do it twice. Once because they coulnd n’t get the results they wanted. Once to magically make the trusses bow 40 inches.

  3. If they’re trying to manipulate the outcome, then that wasn’t a legitimate experiment. It needs to be done properly.

  4. Kevin Ryan from Underwriters Labratories saw that the NIST computer model had yeilded a 40″ bow in the very same trusses that U.L. had just done several assembly tests on for the NIST report on what happened to the towers.
    In the U.L. test, the trusses flexed about 2 inches under hotter conditions and for longer periods than they had in the towers.
    When he read the NIST report that said their computer model bowed 40″, he wrote them and asked how they came to that result.
    In fact, there has been no “peer review” of the computer model NIST used and no review on the “forces” applied to the trusses in it.
    Kevin Ryan was fired from U.L. for asking NIST about the test.

  5. Kevin Ryan, like many others, rightly argue that that computer model is key in exposing that we still have no idea what happened to those towers.
    Without that 40″ bow in the trusses, there is no reason for the collapse (since we couldnt see the walls buckling in in any videos, some say it has already proven itself to be a fraud).
    But the experiments done by U.L. doesn’t support the information NIST came up with, and niether does the fire rating codes for the materials used.
    Keven Ryan says that he recieved information about the model used by NIST, and that in fact, the first tests with the computer model showed a 3″ bow, similar to what the real world experiment showed. He says they had to ‘tweak” the perameters in the model to get it to achieve the “desired” result.

    What is so important about this test, is that without it, there is no reason for collapse (like all other burned steel framed buildings that didn’t collapse) and if there is no logical reason for the collapse in their storyline, there must be another reason.

  6. Kevin Ryan “It is important to note that the results produced in 1970 were the same as those from the August 2004 UL floor tests – only 3 inches of sagging after 120 minutes in the furnace.”

    not 40″

  7. One day we will know the truth about this, but can anyone deny how very very strange this thing is? How very wrong? All the lies and mistimings, finding out that what’s his name’s building was “demo’d” on the same day, “just because”. Ummm, tell me when did the demo experts access the building during that day? We’ll find out the truth one day, when all the people that should be hung for it are dead.
