. Opening Comments by Lisa Giuliani On Thursday, March 10, 2005, 9-
11 truth finally made a breakthrough into the mainstream media when
a State College, Pennsylvania newspaper - The Centre Daily Times -
owned by Knight-Ridder (the third largest newspaper chain in the
United States) published a 650-word Op-Ed article by Victor Thorn.

. This publication, with a daily circulation of approximately
30,000 readers, allowed Thorn to discuss his latest book, 9-11 on
Trial, which lays out a solid, thoroughly-researched case that the
government's "official" story regarding how the WTC towers collapsed
could not possibly be true.

. This article appears below - please disseminate far-and-wide!

. Author Searches for Truth on Trade Center Collapse by Victor Thorn

. What if you discovered that the government's "official"
explanation for the World Trade Center collapse on the morning of 9-
11 was not exactly true? In addition, *what if their "official"
version of events could be disproven solely on the basis of physics,
mathematical equations, scientific formulas, physical evidence, and
expert testimony* – without the use of a single "conspiracy theory"?
Would your perspective on 9-11 be dramatically altered?

. This is precisely what is illustrated in 9-11 on Trial, a book
that shreds the government's official story – and credibility –
beyond repair. Did you know, for instance, that *never before in the
history of the world has a steel building collapsed due to fire?* Yet
on 9-11, three of them did just that in seven hours – with WTC 7 not
even being hit by an airliner. *Furthermore, it takes a temperature
of 2,795 degrees to melt construction grade steel, yet the highest
temperature jet fuel can reach is 1,517 degrees.* Plus, all the jet
fuel burned off within two minutes of the towers being struck, while
*two independent studies proved that the fires within each tower
never rose above 500-600 degrees.* In fact, FEMA revealed in their
final report that, "The heat produced by burning jet fuel does not
by itself appear to have been sufficient to initiate the structural

. Also, the WTC towers were designed to withstand the impact from a
Boeing 707 (similar to a Boeing 767), and each floor was designed to
hold 2,600,000 pounds beyond its own weight. Likewise, the steel
used in these structures was rated to hold five times its normal
load. MIT professor Thomas Eager admitted as much when
declaring, "The impact of the airplanes would have been
insignificant" in toppling the towers.

. Also, *how do we explain the pools of molten steel which were
found bubbling 70 feet beneath the towers five weeks after 9-11? *
Incidentally, a temperature of 5,182 degrees is needed to transform
steel into a liquefied state. Do you think fires that FEMA
admitted "would have burned at, or below, temperatures typical in
office fires" could have produced such extremes? Even NYFD
audiotapes of firefighters who reached the South tower's impact
point reveal that they "judged the blazes to be manageable" and were
easily extinguishable in less than an hour.

. Even more interesting is *the South Tower. Even though it
experienced a less forceful hit than the North Tower and had smaller
fires, it fell in only half the time of its counterpart *(56
minutes). It takes five-times that long to cook a turkey! Plus, the
South Tower's cap, which initially tipped 23 degrees past vertical,
suddenly reversed direction, then dropped vertically, defying
Newton's First Law of Motion.

. Most incriminating, though, is *the resistance-free speed (a mere
10 seconds) at which the towers collapsed.* To put this matter into
perspective, if you were standing atop the WTC towers, and at the
precise moment when they began to fall you dropped a football over
the side, you and the football would have hit the ground at nearly
the exact same moment. In other words, 200,000 tons of steel,
425,000 cubic yards of concrete, and all the walls, desks and floors
provided no resistance whatsoever. *Not only does such a collapse
defy Galileo's Law of Falling Bodies, it is physically impossible *
unless all resistance was removed via a controlled demolition.

. Of course there's more (seismographic data, *the ridiculous
pancake & truss-bolt theories,* and the complete vaporization of
nearly all the concrete into a fine microscopic dust), but I'll
close with this question: considering that 9-11 was the most
traumatic event of the 21st century, if there was even a one-percent
chance that the government's official story was false, shouldn't we
do everything humanly possible to discover what the truth ultimately

. Because, if the search for truth and justice doesn't matter to us
in regard to 9-11, what does? ### Victor Thorn is the author of 9-11
