Larry, Larry...
Old news, but still. What Larry Silverstein, owner of the World Trade Centers said about the collapse of the buildings in a PBS documentary:

"I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.'

Life is sick. Depressing, yet I still want to watch the doc with you guys.

What does he mean by that?

To pull a building is to implode it with explosives. It takes weeks to plan and days to set up all the charges. On September 11th, according to Silverstein's story, it took less than seven hours in a burning building. This means they couldn't even get to parts of the building they needed to. Essentially, what he's saying is impossible unless they already had the explosives set inside the building before the attacks. And given that neither of the three major buildings sustained enough damage to collapse on their own, the only logical explanation is that they brought the entire WTC down with demolition charges planted inside. By the way, if you watch footage of the buildings collapsing, you'll not only hear numerous eyewitnesses talking about bombs going off inside, you'll actually see the charges exploding out of the buildings as they collapse.

Oh wow. But how could charges be set up so quickly during all of that chaos? I always thought it was strange that the buildings collapsed from the planes alone.. but I never looked into it.
And I just have to say, I love your icon ♥.

Correct me if I'm wrong Dani

From the way it was explained to me is that according to the documentary they had all that shit all ready set up. *begin sarcasm* I just love how this documentary is floating around but not everyone is bitching about it because that wouldn't be productive. *end sarcasm* Actually it wouldn't be productive because Bushie will sit up there like a big dumbass and people will say "oh he's so cute, look at him trying to be president"
