Plastic Explosives Still Attached to a World Trade Center Beam?

Debunking the Debunkers

Please send this to anyone with an interest in NIST´s investigation and a knack for making FOIA requests, in order to get more information about the object observed in this video. According to the owner of the YouTube video below, you can find the footage yourself in the NIST FOIA records, the release number is 14 (entire package is 964 mb) and you need a torrent downloader:

That thing sure looks out of place!  It's positioned so conspicuously, right under where the column seat was. Explosives spaced out along the perimeter could hardly explain the thoroughness of the pulverization because the floors were so huge, but if they were also placed under the floors like this.. then it makes much more sense.

Super-thermite formulations can act as ignitor, explosive or cutter-charge, and the evidence suggests there were several formulations in the dusts, possibly different types for different jobs. Harrit´s paper mentions (in the discussion section) chips not featured in the paper that had "other elements" present besides the std. Fe-Al-C-Si signature in the red layer of the red/gray chips, such as barium and copper - and also chips with an extra unidentified light gray layer not studied in the paper.

If this red blob seen in the video is an explosive it is most likely a normal explosive not a cutter charge because there is no container around it to direct the cut. It can be Semtex or some super-thermite material.

Harrit´s paper refers to super-thermite "matches" that do not need a detonation cord because they ignite via a little application of current, such as a 12 volt spike. Steven Jones also mentions in one of his lectures that he actually ignited some of the red/gray chips with a 12 volt current. So all you need is a 12 volt battery with a remote-controlled switch. 

You might think the perpetrators would not color their secret nano-thermite orange just like commercial Semtex, but then other concerns may have outweighed the choice of color, such as the possibility of having an explosive material that could be tailored to be quieter and less sensitive than conventional explosives.

It sure looks like the cameraman and the FBI guys were fascinated by the "blob," so it is hard to believe that it is just a big piece of chewing gum someone left stuck on the steel. The blob is there and we think it is worth following up on. Perhaps a FOIA request to NIST or the FBI could reveal what people on the scene said about this thing, what happened to it etc.
