WTC towers 1 and 2 began to collapse at the level where the planes hit them, the explosives in the buildings would have had to survive the impact and fire for an hour or so (actually, 57 minutes in one case, over 100 minutes in the other, if my memory's correct), and have been installed at precisely the right floor to make the collapse start at that point. And if you watch the collapse of building 7 closely you'll see that the roof falls in before the building falls. That's not how controlled demolitions happen. Moreover, it takes a large crew months to prepare a building that size for explosive demolition, they'd have been making big holes in the walls to get at the structural steel, then patching them invisibly, hauling in masses of explosives and det cord, there's no way it could have been done without anybody noticing, those buildings were occupied pretty much 24/7. Unless of course several thousand people were in on the conspiracy and deliberately sacrificed themselves on the day to avoid revealing it. It strains credulity past the breaking point.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
You keep saying "there's now way it could have been done without anybody noticing". Well you are right they were noticed. The following provides the known train of events and associations of interest in any bonified investigation.

Demolition access to the World Trade Center towers: Part one - tenants
Kevin R. Ryan
(During the years from 1993 to 2001, Marsh made several modifications to these floors, in addition to the fireproofing upgrades mentioned above. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Marsh made modifications to the south side of floor 94 in 1998. That same year, the PANYNJ helped Marsh demolish floors 95-98 in order to rebuild the fire alarm and sprinkler systems. Marsh did further modification work on floor 95 in the year 2000.
The full floor fireproofing upgrades on floors 93 through 100 were accomplished in August through November of 1998, except for floor 94, which was done in December 1996.
The South Tower Impact Zone
United Airlines Flight 175 hit the south tower (WTC 2) between floors 78 and 83, in the southeast corner of the building. In the impact zone, Baseline Financial Services (Baseline) was located on floors 77 and 78, Fuji Bank was on floors 79 to 82, and AON Corporation was on floor 83.
Baseline was led by a very interesting individual named Joseph Kasputys, who had a history of being well connected to the highest levels of government, as well as to defense and intelligence industries. Kasputys worked, from 1972 to 1977, for the US departments of commerce and defense. He was also the deputy director of Nixon’s White House taskforce that dealt with the Arab oil embargo of 1973, and he was instrumental in the creation of the Department of Energy (DOE).
Kasputys’ connections to the DOE, from 1977 through at least 1997, are interesting considering that the DOE was developing thermite ignition devices as early as 1983.
Additonally, national laboratories working within the DOE developed nanothermites in the late 1990s. Nanothermites are explosive thermite mixtures where one or more reactants are present at the nanometer scale. These are also called super-thermites due to the extraordinarily large amount of energy released upon ignition.[3, 30])
(Kasputys was also a member of the Logistics Management Institute (LMI), whose members included Paul Kaminski of In-Q-Tel and General Dynamics, Charles DiBona of Halliburton, Skull and Bones member Joseph Samuel Nye, and Michael Daniels of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). It has been noted that SAIC, a defense contractor with expertise in thermite-related technologies, played a large part in the NIST WTC investigation. LMI’s self-proclaimed role is “advancing the science of government.”[30, 31])
(According to NIST, Kasputys’ Baseline modified the southeast corner of floor 78 in 1999, exactly where the aircraft hit on 9/11.
Floors 77 and 78 were upgraded for fireproofing in June and April of 1998, respectively.)
