Too many lies!
DR PAUL Craig Roberts, a former assistant secretary of the US Treasury and an associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, would certainly not have come out so strongly about the myth of 9/11 had the arguments he put up not held water and had there not been facts to substantiate these arguments. His detailed and well-argued points in the article (‘Commemorating September 11, 2011: Too many years of lies: from
Mossadeq to 9/11’) were literally bolts from the blue. I congratulate the New Age editor and his colleagues for the outstanding full-page article on the Editorial page on September 12.
As a metallurgical engineer, I found one fact stated in the article quite intriguing. The Hiroshima fireball of the exploding atom bomb reached core maximum temperatures of above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is over 550 degrees Celsius and not a single steel column melted or was deformed. Only steel of eutectic composition (rarely produced commercially) starts softening at 723 degrees Celsius.
In stark contrast, as stated in the article, the World Trade Centre steel columns broke away, and were deformed because of heat from extremely high temperature local charges. Also only two per cent of the samples tested by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the United States indicated temperatures reaching above 250 degrees Celsius.
This only points to the mystery behind the matter and, as Dr Roberts states, ‘the NIST’s explanation of the structural failure of the towers cannot survive scrutiny.’ All said and done, it does seem pretty convincing technically. If any reader has missed going through it, then I feel you should print it again.
