Aaron Swirski, one of the architects of the World
Trade Center, talks exclusively to Jerusalem Post Radio on the World
Trade Center collapse. He says they designed the towers to withstand
something like a plane flying into the side.

EXPLOSIVES EXPERT SAYS
WTC WAS BOMBED
Towers collapse "too methodical"
Van Romero, vice
president for research at New Mexico Institute of Mining and
Technology says the collapse of the twin towers resembled those of
controlled implosions used in planned demolition.
"My opinion is, based on the videotapes, that after
the airplanes hit the World Trade Center there were some explosive
devices inside the buildings that caused the towers to collapse,"
A demolition expert, Romero is a
former director of the Energetic Materials Research and Testing
Center at Tech, which studies explosive materials and the effects of
explosions on buildings, aircraft and other structures.
said he and Denny Peterson, vice president for administration and
finance, were en route to an office building near the Pentagon to
discuss defense-funded research programs at Tech. Romero told the Albequerque Journal that he based his opinion on
video aired on national television broadcasts.

could have been a relatively small amount of explosives placed in
strategic points," Romero said.

he hurtled across New York towards Manhattan Island, he could see the vast
plume of smoke (1). His colleague in Flight 11,
approaching from the opposite direction had already made an almost perfect
impact on the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
On the far
side of the tower, concealed from his view, was the gash (2) where the hijacked airliner had spread its fuel payload
over several floors of the building. Just as the trainers had

thing practicing the approach for countless hours on a computer simulator,
but this was real life -and no mistake could be made. The planners had
insisted that the planes must strike the towers at a banked angle.
Otherwise the fire would be confined to only a couple of floors and would
not set the building comprehensively alight. Without perfect execution,
the imperialists would only suffer minor casualties, he had been
What they never told him was that the aircraft impacts were
only one half of the plan. One visible and psychologically terrorizing
aspect would be provided by the suicidal aircraft. But the other half of
the plan was unknown to the two pilots and their accomplices. Bombs had
already been planted inside both towers.
They would be detonated
after the planes had struck, to ensure the total destruction of the
buildings and their evidentiary contents. The bombs inside the towers were
strapped to radio-trigger detonators. Other plotters would be near the
scene -monitoring TV coverage to determine the right moment to push the
final buttons. The full PsyOps (psychological-warfare)
effect would be the complete disappearance of these two symbols of US
confidence and power.
But if the plane struck at the wrong angle,
or even worse -missed altogether, the whole scheme was in danger.
Substantial fires were necessary as a cover for the subsequent collapse.
The planners had taken every precaution. Their flight approach
paths were calculated to align the two towers as a single target -without
a gap between them. His orders were clear. His target was the South Tower,
but if the first plane struck the wrong tower, he was to switch to the
other. In either event, he must strike at the remaining target with a
But he didn't. And that's where things began
to go wrong.
A straightforward level approach would have been
so much easier. Just line up the towers in the cockpit window and plow
straight in. This banked approach was much harder to accomplish. Imagine
swinging a stone on the end of a string, aiming to strike a standing beer
bottle. Imagine getting only one try. A fully laden 767 is like an
elephant with wings -the apotheosis of maneuverability.
pilot was now less than two miles from his target. The screaming noise of
the engines on high power were already causing heads to turn among the
early morning crowds below. But they didn't really understand what was
happening. One eyewitness would later recount that the first plane had
tried to to veer off the tower, but hit it nevertheless. That witness had
mistaken the intent of the final course correction.
For no matter
how well executed the approach, it would be necessary to make one last
seconds adjustment to get right on target. In the final five seconds, the
tower would still be half a mile away. That's when the collective million
hours of preparation would telescope into seconds and determine the
success or failure of the mission.
And it wasn't
going well. As the tower rushed to fill the view in the cockpit
window (3), the pilot realized that he was going too
fast and wide of the target to boot. He would miss to the right. Instead
of a minor tilt of the controls, he would have to lean the aircraft hard
left -NOW! (4)
As the airliner tilted
acutely to the left (5), the air under the wings began
to leak away -depriving the craft of vital lift, even as the extra
centrifugal force generated by the turn meant that he needed more lift
-not less. The maneuver was only partly successful. Despite the course
correction, the plane still drifted to the right.
In that last
instant (6), he never really had time to consider his
own death. The training
and his death-moment concentration focussed him so intently on the task.
With a grinding crash the side of the building gave way, as Flight 175
struck near the corner of the tower -too far to the right (7).
The howl of metal and concrete impacting each
other was overlaid with the crack of plate glass shattering. The concrete
floors of the building cut through the plane like a egg passed through an
egg slicer. The metal in its wings offered little resistance. In an
instant, the plane had disappeared into the tower like a bird returning to
But it was no longer an aircraft. It's separated parts
careered across the floors of the South Tower. It was no longer obeying
the laws of aerodynamics. It was subject to the dictates of the angular
momentum caused by the banked approach -and that last moment course
That's when things began to go even more wrong for the
cynical perpetrators of the mass death that was now being inflicted on
those in the shattered airliner's path.
THE ARC OF FAILURE
Earlier, the North
Tower impact site had been right in the center of the tower (2). The entire fuel load and flotsam was dumped deep inside
and remained in the building -where it exploded (8)(fig 1
But now as Flight 175 disappeared inside the
South Tower, it burst like a paper bag full of water. The thousands
of pounds of jet fuel were liberated to follow a path dictated by the
momentum of what had once been an aircraft.
A wash of jet fuel and
airplane parts tore through the interior of the building at hundreds of
miles an hour; sweeping everything before it and just starting to ignite
as it rushed along. But it didn't take the same course as had aircraft
debris inside the North Tower, eighteen minutes before. By contrast, the
majority of the fuel and debris from the second plane smashed out of the
building and exploded OUTSIDE in the open air over the street (9)(fig 2 below).
The plane's approach was an arc of
a great circle -one that had tightened even further with that final twitch
on the controls. Imagine again a paper bag of water spun on the end of a
string. If the paper bag bursts, the water inside will head off at a
tangent to the original arc.
In the same
fashion, the fuel now tried to take a course to the right of the original
flight path. The aircraft had impacted near the corner of the building.
Within fractions of a second the already igniting fuel had raced
diagonally across the corner to burst out into the open air again, on the
adjacent side of the Second Tower. Photos even show a smoking engine which
shot out as it had not even been slowed by the building interior (10).
This air explosion
provided a stunning pyrotechnic spectacle witnessed by countless millions,
but it was an operational disaster. For it left the thorny question of
explaining how the South Tower -which took less than half the fuel load of
its North Tower twin -was the first of the two to collapse.(See Fig 1&2)
THE WRONG TOWER
Even before the
second plane hit the South Tower, its northern counterpart was already
burning strongly, with a great plume of dense black toxic fumes drifting
over a stunned Manhattan. Flight 11 had rocketed deep inside the building
before the fuel ignited. On some floors the fire burned across the entire
width of the building. By 9:45 a.m. the North Tower was ablaze not just on
the floors that took the impact, but all the way to the top of the
towers sprinkler fire extinguisher system were bolstered by automatic
hermetrically sealing doors on every floor to prevent the spread of fire.
But office workers still found themselves stumbling down sometimes
darkened and smoke-filled fire escape stairs.
The giant steel beams
used to build the towers had been cast in Japan -no American steel milll
could roll out the massive 'I' beams. The explanation accepted by the
mainstream media pundits for the collapse of both towers is that these
beams softened like warm toffee in the intensity of the fires.
that were the case, then the North Tower was the obvious candidate to be
the first to collapse. Not only did it have almost a twenty minute head
start on the South Tower conflagration, but the fire extended to the whole
area of many floors. The South Tower fire was smaller and more confined,
so that by 10:30 a.m. there was an obvious difference visible to those in
the streets below and the hypnotized TV cameras now trained on the
But can the collapse in any event be really
blamed on the fires within? The great explosions on impact had consumed
all the jet fuel in seconds. Now it was plastic fixtures, cabling and
internal partitioning that were burning. Or smoldering, to be more
precise. Only near the great gaping holes -where there was access to an
air supply- did the fire burn with anything like the intensity required to
melt great beams of steel.
Neither had the impacts significantly
weakened the structural integrity of the buildings. Even under normal
circumstances these flexible buildings swayed so much in high winds that
seasickness was a noticeable problem among workers on upper floors. Even
on floors near the impact sites, many had felt only a mild shudder as the
For the fire to be the cause of the collapse,
most of the array of steel beams that spanned each floor would have to be
engulfed in continuous extremely high temperature fire. This did not
happen, nor was it essential to the plan. If the real intent had been to
collapse the towers by means of fire then the planes would have struck the
corners of the towers nearest to each other. That would have increased the
chances of one tower collapsing into the other.

explosions in the other buildings around the towers. Explosions that sent
clouds of masonry dust into the air. The first of many blasts that would
rock the World Trade Center complex.
