FEMA's "Investigation"

The total collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were (based on the official story) the 3 largest engineering failures in the history of the world.

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) made sure there was no real investigation.

  • No independent investigation was funded.
  • FEMA assembled a group of volunteer investigators: the Building Performance Assessment Team (BPAT), and gave them a budget of $600,000 to create their report.
  • FEMA's investigators lacked subpoena power.
  • They were not allowed to see the buildings' blueprints.
  • The investigators were barred from Ground Zero. They were only allowed to examine the few large pieces of steel in salvage yards.
  • Engineers examined no steel until late October.
    Salvage yards were visited on 57 days by March 15.
  • They had to guess where the pieces came from.
  • They saved 156 pieces (mostly "coupons") out of millions for further study.
  • By the time BPAT published its report: The World Trade Center Building Performance Study, in May 2002, Ground Zero had been scrubbed.
