On Sunday morning, February 16, 2020, an 11-story tower in Dallas laced with 300 pounds of dynamite was supposed to neatly implode in a controlled demolition. It didn’t quite go as planned. Steve Pettigrew, president of Pettigrew Inc.–a company involved in the demolition–explained that the building, which has a concrete and steel core, “undressed itself” too quickly during the implosion. “The skirt came off the core,” he said, and what was left–the core–is 35 feet shorter and listing at 15 degrees. The remaining structure will be demolished later via crane and wrecking ball.
So the concrete and steel core of this squatty Dallas tower would not give up so easily! Failed demolitions are not all that unusual. Yet on 9/11 how did the massive WTC twin towers standing a quarter-mile-tall with hell-strong central cores virtually disappear in 8-9 seconds, leaving damn little debris behind? The protective “bathtub” or dike protecting the WTC, built on bedrock below the water table, was undamaged, an impossibility if the 1 million ton towers, combined, had really crashed, smashed or “collapsed” into the dike. All these effects and more were caused by some jet fuel splashed around a few upper stories? Nonsense. Dust as fine as the size of DNA was most of the towers (p. 327). Jet fuel did all that? Give me a break. And America swallows this SUPER LIE whole? It is still unbelievable. Oh naive me.
