A press release on June second outlined specifics as to why the collapse of World Trade Center building 7 was a controlled demolition and not brought down by fire, as the official story goes.
The 24-member 9/11 Consensus Panel, which is made up of physicists, chemists, engineers, commercial airline pilots, and attorneys, released a report announcing three new studies that confirm the controlled demolition of the building.
The studies that are mentioned use scientific evidence to refute the claims by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that for the first time in history fire brought down a steel framed building through a sudden collapse, even though the building had fire protections within it.
According to the Consensus Panel:
“The first Panel study deals with the NIST computer simulations, which purported to show that fire-induced thermal expansion caused a girder to be pushed off its seat at Column 79, thereby initiating a global collapse of the entire 47-storey building at 5:21 in the afternoon.
However, a recent FOIA request has produced WTC 7 architectural drawings showing that the NIST simulations omitted basic structural supports that would have made this girder failure impossible.”
The second study they released talked about how the NIST didn’t recover any steel from the building after its collapse.
“This is extraordinary, given the need to understand why a steel-frame building would have completely collapsed for the first time in history from fire alone, and to thereby prevent a recurrence.
We know now that some of the steel was recovered. Photographs recently obtained by researchers show the strange curled-up paper-thin WTC 7 steel, with a NIST investigator pointing it out.”
The third study they mentioned was dealing with how there were widespread reports on the day of the attacks that Building 7 was going to collapse hours before it actually did.
“MSNBC reporter Ashleigh Banfield said early in the afternoon: “I’ve heard several reports from several different officers now that that is the building that is going to go down next.”
Many members of the New York Fire Department were confidently waiting for the building to come down:
Firefighter Thomas Donato: “We were standing, waiting for seven to come down. We were there for quite a while, a couple hours.”
Assistant Commissioner James Drury: “I must have lingered there. There were hundreds of firefighters waiting to — they were waiting for 7 World Trade Center to come down.”
Chief Thomas McCarthy: “So when I get to the command post, they just had a flood of guys standing there. They were just waiting for 7 to come down.”
In addition, CNN and the BBC made premature announcements.”
It’s also important to note that while the NIST released its studies and claimed them to be accurate, none of them were peer reviewed. However the Consensus Panel claims that their studies use scientific methodology to peer-review them, adding credibility to what they’re claiming to be true.
