It is up to us to reveal the truth. It is up to us because we owe it to the families, we owe it to the victims, we owe it to everyone's life who was drastically altered, horrifically, that day and forever. We owe it to them to uncover what happened.Of course, if [as Occam's Razor, eye-witness reports and video footage strongly suggest, to say the least] those airplanes really did crash into the towers and the Pentagon, then convincing the surviving family members of those who died that it was some sort of big conspiracy, probably involving the US government (and, very likely, given the way conspiracy theorists "think", Israel) -- presumably in an attempt to give the Shrub a pretext to go to war is needlessly cruel to the survivors and irresponsible, to say the least, in the context of world politics.
Hitler writes in "Mein Kampf":(Hitler, as can be easily discovered with a quick Google (using the search terms "'big lie' nazi", for instance), was referring to his claim that the German Army had not lost World War One in the field, but that the Jews who controlled the press had convinced everyone of that; an amusing coincidence, since Israel is often put forth as one of the potential prime movers of alleged 9/11 conspiracy theories.)"All this was inspired by the principle that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the (public) more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and continue to think that there may be some other explanation."
Steel does not even begin to melt until it reaches almost 2800° Fahrenheit. And yet open fires fueled by hydrocarbons, such as kerosene---which is what jet fuel is---can at most rise to 1700°F, which is almost 1100 degrees below the melting point of steel. We can, accordingly, dismiss the claim that the towers collapsed because their steel columns melted.I would suggest that, since the core of the building was pretty well open (elevator shafts) a chimney effect, yielding a forced draught may well have occured -- using forced draught, ordinary charcoal easily burns hot enough to melt steel.
Most defenders of the official theory, in fact, do not make this absurd claim. They say merely that the fire heated the steel up to the point where it lost so much of its strength that it buckled. For example, Thomas Eagar, saying that steel loses 80 percent of its strength when it is heated to 1,300˚F, argues that this is what happened. But for even this claim to be plausible, the fires would have still had to be pretty hot.

Latter fifties, married, out of work (had knee surgery and haven't gotten back to work); my (step) son-in-law is back from Iraq, but a lot of boys are still over there. Support our troops -- throw the Republicans out!
