A snippet that bears on the
"demolition" theory of 9-11
I was browsing the web
regarding 9-11, and came upon a very interesting story. An employee of
Fuji Bank who worked on the upper floors of the World Trade Center II
was one of those who was sent back up the elevator by security guards
after the first plane struck. He was actually on one of the floors that
were directly hit by the second airplane. He was helped out by someone
else who worked in the building. Otherwise he would have probably died.
I myself worked on the same floor or
floors in the summer of 1999, and you can see on this website some of
the pictures I took at that time from the windows of WTC 2.
So I found the story of Stanley
Praimnath (who I may well have run into while I was working there)
riveting. Ken Walker authored an account of his ordeal for Today's Christian, which may be
found at http://www.christianitytoday.com/tc/2002/005/2.28.html.
Praimnath may have participated in the same fire
drill that I participated in in 1999, where we all walked out the
building from the 79th floor. Anyway, his story is very much worth
What startled me, however, is the
description Mr. Walker gives of Mr. Praimnath's account of the falling
of the towers. I'll quote:
"Two blocks later, they [Stanley and
the man who rescued him] stopped outside historic Trinity Church and
grasped its gates. Soon, they watched in horror as the South Tower
wobbled and shook ominously. Flares of smoky debris shot from the
building like Roman candles. Then, finally, the South Tower—the
building in which Praimnath had just stood minutes earlier— began to
fall upon itself. Only 47 minutes had passed between the plane's impact
and the tower's collapse."
THE SOUTH TOWER WOBBLED AND SHOOK
OMINOUSLY. FLARES OF SMOKY DEBRIS SHOT FROM THE BUILDING LIKE ROMAN
CANDLES....THEN .....THE SOUTH TOWER...BEGAN TO FALL UPON ITSELF.
I think this description is quite
interesting, because, as this article was written just a year after
9-11, there were only a few who were promulgating the theory that the
towers fell by controlled demolition, rather than the weakening of the
structures due to the impact of the planes and the fire that ensued.
But this description is eerily consistent with a controlled demolition.
1. The South Tower wobbled and shook
2. Flares of smoky debris shot from
the building like roman candles.
3.The south tower began to fall upon
That's a pretty good chronology. You
draw your own conclusions.
