    First!

    It’s not yet 10 years until September.

    Where is Allende? 37 years.

    If we had a real investigative agency in this country, it might have found out how it happened.

    As it is, FBI and CIA have been too busy fighting over turf, and covering up these crimes, to bother finding evidence. This stuff has to go to the very top (well, the bunker under) the White House.

    Unbelievable incompetence at all levels, including Air Force, or a carefully orchestrated misdirection, at work.

    Many of us care; but if the rot is in the roots of the tree, it may be too late for the Empire.

    I’m generally in favor of the ancient and gentle practice of shunning.

    Oh. This site is full of 9/11 truthers. That would explain the why the deodorant store went out of business.

    It appears to be snot.

    Thanks for the links Rikoshay. As they say, truth is the first casualty of war. And it’s still on its deathbed thanks in large part to corporate control of what passes for the news media these days.

    Don’t get too nostalgic for some imagined golden age. Was the news media ever really that great? Depending on how old you are, think back to the decades you can remember and ask yourself whether you were ever really told the whole truth about anything important.

    Jade & Clark: At first I thought it might have been snot, but considering that it’s supposed to be Bush, I think its cocaine.

    Controlled demolition? Both towers? Come on…….

    We live in Shakespearean times, giving even the Bard pause. But is it tragedy or comedy or too much of both?

    Do you mean “Shakespearean times” as in Elizabethan/Jacobean England? It’s true, the Tea Party has much in common with the Puritans. Is another Cromwell, and another Civil War, on the horizon?

    Or do you mean “Shakespearean times” as in “an era in which Shakespeare might have set a play”? That could be any era, of course, from Legendary Troy (“Troilus and Cressida”) to Medieval Scandanavia (“Hamlet”) to the recent (for him) past (“Henry VIII”).

    As far as whether it would be a tragedy or a comedy, I think it was Walpole who first said “Life is a comedy to those who think, and a tragedy to those who feel.”

    I suspect that, if Will WERE to dramatize contemporary America, it’s have to be one of the “problem plays”, like “Measure for Measure” (a “comedy” that’s REALLY dark) or “Timon of Athens” (a “tragedy” that reads as farce).

    There was a lot of aluminum from the decoration of the towers and the structure of the planes.

    The alloys of aluminum get harder with the higher numbers, like 6061 is hard and brittle, while the 2000 series is much softer and can flex. But it all burns.

    Stuff built in the 1960s has proven to be notoriously shoddy in general. I don’t pretend to know anything about engineering, but there is anecdotal evidence all over New York of the inferiority of construction from that period.

    No takers on my Allende comment? Americans are so self centered!

    I thought that was pretty funny jmattadams. Mean, but funny.

    Comments like this: “Even if the beams were made from Aluminum ,which they in all likelihood were not” Don’t exactly boost credibility.

    The problem with the “conspiracy” people is they want a simplistic answer. There are no easy answers! There is no malevolent devil hiding away somewhere that we can just lobby or assainate and all will be right in the world. We are our own worst enemy and until we can see that we won’t be able to be constructive in improving things. We need to work together and not be so deluded by the capitalist individualist ethic. We are social creatures. 9/11 theories even though their advocates claim to be self sufficient islands of reason are just part of another social phenomenon. (Speaking as a “self sufficient” DIY metalworker it’s pretty common knowledge the basic properties of steel, iron and various aluminums - you folks don’t sound convincing when you spout “facts” about how impossible it is for metal to do what you think based on obviously never ever dealt with hot metal before)

    Human Aluminum doessn’t burn? What is the solid fuel in the Space Shuttle engines? 70% aluminum perchlorate.

    You did not read enough of the article. The temperature easily could have risen to 1800 degrees C, high enough to melt steel.

    “Steel often melts at around 1370 degrees C (2500°F).” To quote Jefferson Lab.
