September 1 2009, Jack Blood Interviews Dr. David Ray Griffin on Deadline Live. Debunking National Geographic's 9/11 Science and Conspiracy.
In regard to the interview Pat Curley of the Screw Loose Change blog states:
"He is criticising National Geographic for confusing incendiaries and explosives, and then he takes thermite, an incendiary, and says that all of their writings discuss how it is used as an explosive. Yeah... OK..."
Yeah OK? Good debunking there Pat.
"One of the critiques of theories that thermite was used to destroy the World Trade Center skyscrapers asserts that thermite preparations don't have sufficient explosive power to account for the observed features of the buildings' destruction. This criticism seems to be uninformed by knowledge of some of the aluminothermic preparations known to exist -- particularly those being researched for military applications." - Source: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/analysis/theories/thermitetech.html
Stop acting like you don't know this Pat. Nat Geo damn well knew it too.
Next he quotes Griffin:
"Even if you did have steel columns and beams that started lose strength, you would have the building start to sag and lean to one side maybe. Floors start to droop down. No, you got a building that's absolutely solid. Absolutely still and then all of a sudden it collapses."
And responds with:
"WHAT?! Have any of you morons actually read the NIST report? The whole collapse was started by those 'drooping floors'. They even have pictures!"
Yeah, here is one of those pictures, and an explanation of why this argument is totally baseless. Griffin is aware of the inward bowing of perimeter columns prior to the collapses, he brings it up in his book Debunking 9/11 Debunking. He obviously is talking about a more extreme event.
