Robert Fisk's Questions About 9-11 Truth

Robert Fisk of the Independent UK lists some questions about the official version of what happened on 9-11. Here's a quote:

I am talking about scientific issues. If it is true, for example, that kerosene burns at 820C under optimum conditions, how come the steel beams of the twin towers – whose melting point is supposed to be about 1,480C -– would snap through at the same time? (They collapsed in 8.1 and 10 seconds.) What about the third tower -– the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or the Salmon Brothers Building) -– which collapsed in 6.6 seconds in its own footprint at 5.20pm on 11 September? Why did it so neatly fall to the ground when no aircraft had hit it? The American National Institute of Standards and Technology was instructed to analyse the cause of the destruction of all three buildings. They have not yet reported on WTC 7. Two prominent American professors of mechanical engineering -– very definitely not in the "raver" bracket -– are now legally challenging the terms of reference of this final report on the grounds that it could be "fraudulent or deceptive".

Bruce, It is ha been a long time since I have commented on your blog mostly because a seldom if ever read blogs until they are brought to my attention by a third party. I have little to no idea who Robert Fisk is but I am sorry to see you jumping on the 9-11 conspiracy band wagon and to run his item on the same page with the Banner of the New Baptist covenant of which I am also a strong supporter. To me your placement of the two could be misconstrued by some to show a relationship which in fact does not exist. I would ask that make a editorial comment to the effect that the two are in no way related.

Ed,

Fisk is a well-known British reporter that often elicits heated opposition.

Here's a link to an article about him at wikipedia.

Like Fisk, I'm still waiting for a credible explanation for why building seven at the World Trade Center imploded.

Bruce,

Don't let Ed try to derail your search for the truth. Folks like that prefer burying their heads in the sand. Really sad. I've posted your link at my Oklahoma news site - www.reddirtreport.com.

Come on by for a visit.
