Essential Prep for Controlled Demo - Did we Miss Anything? Was the World Trade Center pre demolished and Hollow on 9/11?



One thing that nearly all 911 truth believers agree upon, is the destruction of the 3 buildings by controlled demolition. It is nearly obvious that the buildings did not "collapse" straight down at near free-fall velocity. While there remain many circular arguments about exactly what methods were used, almost everyone agrees that it was a controlled demolition of some type.

Video evidence (squibs) prove that no matter which method(s) were employed, there were coordinated explosions identifiable on the upper floors of the World Trade Center towers during the demolition. These explosions produced a percussive wave (air blast) which blew out the windows and forced dust and any available debris out at a tremendous velocity, producing the visually distinct "squibs".

Upon close re-inspection, in can be noted that these squibs seem to contain only dust, and no projectiles large enough to be seen are ejected. Unlike dust, larger debris carries the momentum inherent with its greater mass, and would tend to travel in a trajectory when it is ejected at speeds of over 15,000 feet per second. Dust loses its propulsion as quickly as the pressures propelling it are equalized. Any larger piece of debris would be carried, farther than the dust cloud, outward by its momentum.

It should also be noted that a few of these explosions carried assemblies of steel beams weighing many tons outward 500 feet or more.

According to this article at How Stuff Works;

Once they have a clear idea of how the structure should fall, it's time to prepare the building. The first step in preparation, which often begins before the blasters have actually surveyed the site, is to clear any debris out of the building. Next, construction crews, or, more accurately, destruction crews, begin taking out non-load-bearing walls within the building. This makes for a cleaner break at each floor: If these walls were left intact, they would stiffen the building, hindering its collapse. Destruction crews may also weaken the supporting columns with sledge hammers or steel-cutters, so that they give way more easily.

And these Wikipedia articles;

Larger or more complex structures can take up to six months of preparation to remove internal walls and wrap columns with fabric and fencing before firing the explosives.

It takes several weeks or months to prepare a building for implosion. All items of value, such as copper wiring, are stripped from a building. Some materials must be removed, such as glass that can form deadly projectiles, and insulation that can scatter over a wide area. Non-load bearing partitions and drywall are removed.

everything is removed from the buildings that can be removed.

In this Nova interview Stacy Loizeaux, of Controlled Demolition Inc., states:

We are usually an implosion subcontractor, meaning that there is a main demolition contractor on site, who's been contracted by the property owner or the developer, and they then subcontract the implosion to us. We will then ask them to perform preparatory operations, including non-load bearing partition removal—meaning, the dry wall that separates the rooms. It's not carrying the weight of the building. It's just there as a divider. But what happens—you know, if you have a case of beer—all the little cardboard reinforcements inside? If you have all those little cardboard reinforcements, then you can jump up and down on the case. But if you take them out, the case will crush under your weight. Those little partitions actually add up and act as stiffeners. So that's one of the first things we strip out.

So, according to the experts, in order to safely demolish a building with implosion techniques, everything, including non-bearing walls must be removed.

The two main reasons stated for this seem obvious, but important. The first, that they may "stiffen" the building, is explained well by Ms. Loizeaux.

The second is really two-fold. Objects which remain serve as literal "cannon fodder", that is, anything present at detonation is instantly propelled as a projectile. Smaller objects tend to be even more worrysome than large, because due to aerodynamics, large objects have a lower terminal velocity. Small objects are like bullets, their mass provides momentum which outweighs the aerodynamic slowing forces, due to little surface area.

The other reason many things are removed is for their recycled value. Often on demolition projects small and large, the proceeds of recycled steel, copper, and other items can offset or even cover the entire cost of the demolition.

The main reason though, is the first, removal of potential projectiles.

Here are a few video examples of controlled demolitions:

Note that in each of these examples, the buildings are completely gutted. On floors where explosives are to be placed (they are not necessary on every floor), the windows and often the exterior have been removed in order to eliminate outward ejections.

The examples above show that everything; wiring, plumbing, drywall, fixtures, partitions, doors, everything that can be removed, is removed before the charges are set. NOTE: During construction, cranes and elevators must be used to move these materials UP, during demolition gravity is employed so chutes and the like can facilitate sending these materials DOWN for removal.

The above discussion deals with only the deconstruction of the building in preparation for demolition. Removal of the buildings former contents is not even mentioned as it would seem a foregone conclusion that if parts of the building (attached) can become dangerous projectiles, untethered office contents would certainly be shot out everywhere like fireworks.

Everyone seems to agree that the towers were felled by controlled demolition, and they certainly were. So where is the ejection of office contents from outside and corner offices? Where are the pieces of Plumbing, Fire sprinkler pipe (very indestructible), Fire doors, etc,(the list is too long) which should have rained down all over Manhattan when ejected by the explosions?

There is only one reasonable answer to that question.

***Please listen to a recent interview with Jim Fetzer on his Radio show, the Real Deal, where Phil Jayhan & myself are interviewed by Jim Fetzer on these amazing new discoveries! Sometimes its a lot better to be able to hear all the evidence for an idea and theory then reading all about it,fragmented all over the forums. Please check out the interview below, it might answer many of your questions.
