FEMA's Report Misrepresents the Tower's Construction

FEMA's report pretends the towers would instantly self-destruct if the floors fell away.

Key to this deception is hiding the strength of the core structures.

  • Core column cross-sections are shown about 1/3rd their actual dimensions.
    (if they are shown at all).
  • Cross-bracing core beams are not shown.
  • Report lacks description of core structures.
  • Report's description of the towers fails to account for about 30 percent of the steel thought to have been used in their construction.

Report has only one photo giving size comparison of core column.
It fraudulently presents a much smaller column as a Twin Tower core column.
