“‘ Is it a bird!?’ ‘Is it a plane?!’ ‘IT’S SUPERMAN!’ ‘No it really is a plane?’” This famous advertisement was used in news headlines around the United States referring to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. On this day Islamic terrorists hijacked American flights and attempted to attack several US business buildings. American Airlines 11 and United Airlines 175 hit the North and South towers of the World Trade Center, American Airlines 77 took out the Pentagon, and in attempt to go to Washington D.C., United Airlines 93 was taken down in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The terrorists, as they would like us to think, did not only take down business buildings, “they” also took down the United States economically, militarily, and socially. …show more content…
In this case, skeptics of 9/11 believe that the government planned the “plane crash” for the reason of going to war with Iraq and Afghanistan. “In this sense [conspiracy theory] 9/11 is no different from the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the fatal car crash of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed or - for Germans- the suicide of politician Uwe Barschel”(Gerdes). Flight UA 93 did not crash into the field, because if so there would have been evidence of the plane. UA 93 was simply shot down by the fighter jets. CNN news had reports three minutes after the attacks. They claim they have cameras around New York for backdrops, but that only explains the footage, not the information they had. The WTC did not stand very long because the fireproof coating was destroyed. The claim was the fire weakened the steel frames. In order to melt the frames the fire had to have been 1500* C, but reports say the fire could have only been 800* C. How is that possible? If a bird can slice through the wings of an airplane how did the plane slice through steel beams of a building? North Tower stood twenty-nine minutes longer than South Tower, but the destruction was the same. What made the tower stand longer? Building 7 was the furthest away from the towers, yet was still damaged. Why? There was no silhouette of the plane imprinted on the Pentagon. Instead a circular shape …show more content…
“Aluminothermic reactions are exothermic chemical reactions in which aluminum is oxidized while an oxide of another metal is reduced.” Also known as thermite. An orange molten metal pouring from the south tower. Research says the only time they have seen that is from thermite. Thermite is usually used as a weapon not on planes. Hijackers could not have gotten away with getting thermite on the planes. People were working on the WTC months before the attack. This is when they implanted the thermite bombs. The framing left from the building was sliced at an angle, which does not correspond with the way the plane crashed nor the building collapsing. Thermite seeped through and sliced the framing. The building was created to withstand high winds and in 1993, the building withstood a bombing. There is no reason the building’s core could not stay at least 50% intact. If anything the top of the building should have fallen, but it pancaked (“Thermite”). The WTC was structured a lot like the Windsor building in Madrid. A fire started eleven stories from the top of the building, and a lot like the WTC the fire was as hot as 800* C. This building stood for 18 hours, but the WTC stood for 85 minutes (“A Sheep No More”). NIST says this is because the WTC’s damage and multifloor untameable fire was too much for the building to take
