Gage, not the three WTC hi-rise collapses on 9/11, since they’ve already been
thoroughly investigated by much more qualified, competent, and honest people.
The NIST scientists and engineers were only able to time the top 18 stories, or
242′, of the collapse of WTC 7’s facade, and determined that it took 5.4
seconds, yet Gage and others in the 9/11 “truth movement” claim that the entire
610′ collapse only took ~6.5 seconds. Did the other 368′ fall in just over 1
second? How is he even able to give us a time to the nearest 1/10 of a second
for the entire collapse when NIST couldn’t because buildings in the foreground
blocked the view of video cameras?
How can he claim that the towers nearly
free fell when the loose, airborne debris from their upper stories was obviously
falling much faster than the collapse zones, and began hitting the ground while
at least 40 stories in each one were still intact? The North Tower was only down
to the height of WTC 7 when debris from the upper stories first hit the ground.
Was g miraculously increased on 9/11? They fell in ~15 and ~22 seconds
respectively, nowhere near the ~9.25 seconds that free fall would have
he begins every presentation with his near free-fall claim. He’s also claimed
that the dust clouds from the collapses were “pyroclastic,” but there are no
reports of anyone’s skin being instantly peeled off, and he’s claimed that the
fires in WTC 7 were minor, totally contradicting these NYC
could his claim that 400,000 yards of
concrete were turned to fine powder be true, when there was less than
100,000 yards of concrete above grade in both towers combined? Does he know how
to turn 400,000 yards of concrete to fine powder with explosives without
Has he ever seen a controlled demolition that left molten
metal in the debris for months? Has he ever seen one that didn’t leave even one
explosively-cut column in the debris? Since he claims that explosives were
planted in the core columns to start the collapses, and that it was done from
elevator shafts, has he even looked a floor plan of the cores above the 78th
floor sky lobby? There were only 6 regular elevators above there, plus a freight
and 2 express elevators, and they were only near 6 of the 47 core columns.
Several of those were in the paths of the planes, and the perimeter columns
collapsed first, so he’s not even making sense, especially considering the fact
that 30 or more stories of core framing stood 15-25 seconds after each tower’s
main collapse was over.
We should investigate the nonsense coming from
Richard Gage, as well as his “engineers.”
