Angle-Cut Columns 2

Advanced Disinformation

Upon the split of Steven Jones from the original scholars group, I realized that the new group formed by Steven was probably short-handed. Having a scientific background myself, I joined this new group to possibly help with his research, looking for overlooked evidence, proof-reading papers and so on.

I quickly came to realize that the only 2 papers within the Journal of 9-11 Studies, "Why Indeed did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse" by Steven Jones and the paper How The Towers Were Demolished by Gordon Ross claimed that thermite (or something similar) was used to "cut" core box columns and both papers showed a particular picture of an angle-cut core column shown below.

Like a Good Research Assistant

This picture seemed to be the only one known that showed this pattern and I realized there must be others within the rubble that had the same characteristics. So like a good boy I set out to find more "thermite cut" evidence that was lacking at the time.

After all, I pondered, how hard could it be to find more?

Also realizing that this group lacked a comprehensive collection of photos of the rubble for our research, I assembled all the highest resolution and most useful photos I could find and posted them together on the internet for the whole group to use.

Then, using these photos and a photoshop program with the ability to zoom in on minute details within the rubble, I set out to find this evidence.

In order to analyze the pictures correctly, I also needed to learn how to recognize what metal cuts made by the clean-up crews looked like so I didn't mistakenly confuse these with possible "angle-cuts" made during the demolitions.

I looked and looked, focusing on the many well preserved, large core box columns distinctly visible throughout the rubble.

Unable to See the Forest Through All Those Trees

I learned quite a lot during my searches, but was unable to find a single angle-cut box column. Just about every core box column I saw was perfectly straight and had cleanly squared-off ends.

The very few core box columns that that were bent or had distorted metal at their ends I collected into a separate folder. Most of these pictures are shown in the paper Possible Bomb Damage, posted on this website.

Undeterred by my lack of success, I kept looking and reported my discoveries to the group.
After about a month of relentless searching, a couple of simple facts dawned on me.

  • Every visible core box column was separated along it's original weld surfaces. That is why they have clean squared-off ends.
  • Not a single core box column was "cut" through the steel of which it was originally made.
  • Just about every one of these core box columns scattered in the rubble was perfectly straight.

And of the ones that had some metal distortions along their ends, there were some interesting patterns suggestive of being struck with a very forceful horizontal blow close to their original welds.

Needless to say I was excited about these new discoveries and presented them to the group through their online forum. This information was received with interest by many members.

The Dusk of Innocence

I, of course, had no suspicion at the time that these claims of thermite cuts to core box columns were anything but just simple, honest misunderstandings, nothing more. I assumed that as we collected a larger body of evidence, rather than relying on individual photos which could be deceiving, we would collectively gain a more comprehensive, statistical understanding of what actually attacked the core box columns, the "spine" of the building.

After all, so many core box column sections are clearly visible within the large collection of photos of the debris. And they were in a remarkably well-preserved condition. The following methods of analysis seemed elementary:

  • Let's just look at these many core box columns to see what may have happened to them.
  • By looking at their ends, we can gain some understanding as to how they became separated from one another.
  • By just looking at them, we could see whether some of them "buckled" (Bazant), were partially "dustified" (Wood), were separated using thermite (Jones) or were separated in some other way.

Pretty simple, no?

Then the Conversation Began to Turn "Strange"
