I am starting to get some truther (e.g., 9/11 conspiracy theorists) traffic so I will post a Tower seven resource blog for those who wish to come here and see for themselves (or to send a friend).
The “truther” would have us believe that the building (WTC 7) received no structural damage. This is just not the case. Nor do you hear them mention that…
Tower 7 housed the city’s emergency command center, so there were a number of fuel tanks located throughout the building—including two 6000-gal. tanks in the basement that fed some generators in the building by pressurized lines. “Our working hypothesis is that this pressurized line was supplying fuel [to the fire] for a long period of time,” according to Sunder. Steel melts at about 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit—but it loses strength at temperatures as low as 400 F. When temperatures break 1000 degrees F, steel loses nearly 50 percent of its strength. It is unknown what temperatures were reached inside WTC7, but fires in the building raged for seven hours before the collapse.
Below are some photos that show some of the damage caused by falling debris. What the truthers don’t mention either is that the falling debris from the
Another Shot of Structural Damage to WTC 7
There are also video examples of some of this debris actually hitting WTC 7:
Another lie about WTC 7 is that it took under 7-seconds to collapse… showing a similarity to a controlled demolition. Unfortunately, this is just not the case as this next video clearly shows:
I love the truth of a matter; it is the truth that shall set you free, not opinion. Be set free truther’s, be set free.
I want to [post some pictures and a video here that will curb some of the wild thoughts that a) the fire in the WTC-7 was small and contained. And that the WTC-7 was undamaged in the WTC 1 & 2 collapse. This being said, I have got the below from one of the most thorough discussions about WTC-7, and it comes from Debunking911.com. A well done site. This site as well as others can be found in my links section of this blog. You just have to look a bit for them (as I have many… links that is).
Often times this is the photo or scene shown on many of the conspiratorial “documentaries” or sites:
The photos and videos that are not shown can be seen below, they show just how big and massive this fire was that raged in WTC-7 for many hours:
Now I want to show the debris ring and an example (Bankers Trust) of the destruction from the original two towers collapsing:
Now a photo from the damage done to WTC-7:
Now I want to switch gears and repost an old blog on “melting steel, another fallacy of the 9/11 truthers:
Gasoline & Steel
According to the 9/11 Truthers, gasoline doesn’t burn hot enough to melt steel. Remember that the type of heat experienced in the
Another “9/11 Truther” Red-Herring Goes Down In Flames
The Online video Loose Change, the French book L'Effroyable Imposture, or The Horrifying Fraud, have used Mike Walter’s quote out of context for so long that he finally had to set the record straight. I love it. The bridge collapse by gasoline and now this. Lies are always defeated by the truth.
The book he was speaking about is this one:
