Honestly, will the 9/11 conspiracy theorists ever admit they don’t have anything solid to go on? Case in point: this video. (It should be noted that this link may cease to work shortly, as the Stage6 video service is shutting down. I’ll try to find it elsewhere.) The entire video is based on a couple of minor explosions in the North Tower shortly following United Airlines 175 hitting South Tower. Um, explosions in a burning building? STOP THE FREAKIN’ PRESSES!
Seriously, though. The video claims that explosions were set off in the North Tower to distract from what was happening in South Tower. First off, distract from what? My guess is that the makers of this video believe the “no-plane” theory, which holds that missiles hit the towers instead of airplanes. There are a lot of holes in that theory, but I won’t go into that (besides, few conspiracy theorists actually believe that theory). Second, those minor explosions are hardly distracting. They look more like blown out windows than anything else. You can’t compare that to a massive fireball caused by hundreds of gallons of jet fuel.
This is the kind of thing that makes me wonder why so many people think the government engineered 9/11. This is not evidence. It’s guesswork and opinion. I watched that video and saw nothing out of the ordinary in those North Tower explosions. They happened about a floor or two beneath the impact zone, so it’s not a stretch to conclude that the fire had spread to those floors and caused the windows to blow out, especially when combined with the heat and shockwave caused by the explosion in South Tower. Once again, nothing to see here: move along.
