European Scientific Journal: '9/11 was a Controlled Demolition'
New architectural study suggests World Trade Centre brought down by controlled demolition.
The European Scientific Journal, a publication affiliated with the European Scientific Institute has published an in-depth account of the collapse of the World Trade Centre complex on September 11th, 2001. The article, which is entitled “15 Years Later: On the Physics of High-Rise Building Collapses” has sensationally found that the buildings were almost certainly brought down by a controlled demolition.
The article was the result of several years of work from some renowned collaborators including Steven Jones of Brigham Young University, Robert Korol of McMaster University – a mechanical design engineer who works in the aerospace industry and Anthony Szamboti, and Ted Walter of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The article also makes reference to the views of one of the original architects of the World Trade Centre complex, John Skilling.
In a statement made to The Seattle Times by Skilling:
“We looked at every possible thing we could think of that could happen to the buildings, even to the extent of an airplane hitting the side , however back in those days people didn’t think about terrorists very much.” He continues, “Our analysis indicated the biggest problem would be the fact that all the fuel (from the airplane) would dump into the building . There would be a horrendous fire. A lot of people would be killed. The building structure would still be there. However, I’m not saying that properly applied explosives – shaped explosives – of that magnitude could not do a tremendous amount of damage. I would imagine that if you took the top expert in that type of work and gave him the assignment of bringing these buildings down with explosives, I would bet that he could do it.”
Skilling told the investigators that he was called upon to do an in-depth assessment on what would happen to the World Trade Centre if it was hit by a plane, following an airplane collision with the Empire State Building. After an extensive scenario exercise, Skilling concluded that a plane crashing into one of the buildings of the World Trade Centre would cause fatalities. This would be because the volatile fuel from the airplane would be highly likely to ignite and cause a raging fire that would certainly cause deaths. However the study concluded, the structural integrity of the steel would remain intact. This was based on the assumption that no high-rise building has ever collapsed because of fire or external impact.
Given his huge amount of familiarity with the World Trade Centre and its capacity to withstand impact, Skilling concluded that the only way the body could have been leveled was a controlled demolition.
It was on this latter point that the authors concluded their study. They state:
“It bears repeating that fires have never caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise before or since 9/11. Did we witness an unprecedented event three separate times on September 11, 2001?” the authors of the articles concluded. These are questions that figures within the Bush administration still need to answer more than fifteen years after the 9/11 attacks.
